‘Kin’ Season 2 Episode 1: Story
In the last episode of season 1, Michael Kinsella shot three men in the parking lot, which was a sign that something bad was going to happen to the Kinsella family. One of the other two men, apart from Eamon, was the son of a big Russian mafia boss. As a consequence his sister, Nuray Batuk, came to Dublin to deal with the Kinsella family. At the meeting, she met Amanda, Jimmy, and Frank. Kinsella paid her $2,000,000 in cash, but Nuray said that the money was only for the meeting. Kinsellas was asked to do two things. One was to get the 70 million dollars that Eamon owed them, and the other was that they would kill Michael Kinsella no matter what. Amanda and her family knew they were in big trouble because they were too weak to fight against a Russian gang.
On the other hand, we see that Michael starts living far away from his family in a cabin in the jungle. Since there is an ongoing life threat for him, so he chooses to live in the shadows. But some people had already recognized him, and Nuray had ordered his killing. However, the two men sent to kill Michael failed to even put a scratch on him. Meanwhile, Amanda was pregnant with another child; however, this ongoing situation with Nuray put her under so much pressure that she lost it. Another season begins with Amanda losing a child, and only after that she planned her next move with sharp optimism. She had done calculating the risks involved and went on to meet Nuray on her own.
At the beginning of the season, Kem kills the person who could put Eric Kinsella, aka Viking, in jail. But because he was dead, Eric was released from jail. But he didn’t like it when he learned that Amanda was in charge of the family. By disagreeing with every choice she makes, he shows that he doesn’t like her. Amanda helped Kinsellas get rid of the Eamon situation by giving her advice, so even Frank and Birdy respected her choices. So, when Amanda went to Nuray on her own to make a deal, no one in the family had a problem with it except for Eric. Anyway, at the meeting, Amanda told Nuray that they would give 90 million dollars instead of 70 million, but in exchange, Michael had to be left alone. At first, Nuray did not agree with the deal, but Amanda eventually coaxed her to give in. Nuray gave the Kinsellas four months to pay the amount. Now, at the family meeting, Amanda said that if they wanted to make that much money so quickly, they would have to grow their business outside of Dublin. Frank was a little worried, and Eric didn’t agree with the decision. But Jimmy told Amanda that everyone would get in line over time because the Kinsellas always stick together and fight.
The situation with Frank was getting out of hand, though. The drug overdose from Season 1 left him with trauma. He could always see blood coming out of his nose. He sought shelter in the church, hoping that God would show him the right track with time. As the season progresses, we may see Frank getting softer than usual. Also, at the end of the show, we see Bren Kinsella getting released from jail. We will find out how he takes the situation since Amanda is the head of the family now. There is a chance that Eric and Bren will come up with their own team and fight against Amanda. But Jimmy and Michael will always keep on fighting for Amanda. However, the stands of Birdy and Frank will become clearer in the upcoming episodes. We see Birdy go to meet Michael and tell him that he can now come home as Amanda has cut a deal with the Russians. However, his chances of meeting Anna are getting thinner unless Anna herself decides to stay with him. All in all, we can expect to see the Kinsellas fighting each other and then forming a bond like before. Because to beat the Russians, they will need the strength of each family member. However, the family is losing its strength as everyone is having their own ideas. Eric approached Kem with a new business opportunity, although Kem has softly declined the offer, we will see him working on it in no time. Bren being outside the jail could be a disaster for Amanda in this situation. There may come a time when one of the Kinsellas will die in season 2.
