Netflix Original Series ‘Outer Banks’ S2E6: My Druthers

It took me a few months to get into Outer Banks. It wasn’t one of those shows that I thought I would like and after watching the first two episodes, I was sure it wasn’t a show for me. But I powered through the season, and honestly, I loved it and I feel like often we give up to fast on TV shows because of a lackluster episode or two.

The show left off with mass chaos. Did the storm consume John and Sarah? Will Ward pay for what he did? How will the three amigos (Pope, Kiara, JJ) move on without their friends? And what will happen to the gold?

S2E6: My Druthers

John B is a free man!!!!!!!!!! He is on cloud nine right now and honestly, and he has every right to be. On the verge of facing the death penalty to almost dying via a fellow prisoner to being a free man, the dude is jumping for joy. With him being free, that means the cops are on the hunt at Ward’s family house for Rafe.

The Limbrey and her crew are after this “key” arrive at Pope Dad’s house and things are getting serious. We’ve seen the writing on the wall that they needed leverage against Pope and they just got it. A little rough up of his Dad to remind them who is in charge.

A sad moment happens here for Pope, as his Dad gets roughed up; Kiara informs him that she wants to relegate their relationship back to friends after their one-night stand. Poor Pope.

Ward makes his way to Rafe to help him escape before the cops get to him and while the plan sounded good on the surface, the dealer comes back to haunt Rafe. Although, I will admit I didn’t see the ol double-cross from the dealer coming.

The crew finally got the tape and the cops are closing in on Ward and what happens next is another impactful scene from Charles Esten, dude is just on fire throughout this entire season.

What an episode wow. Another dynamic episode where it finishes with a decisive bang and what’s ahead will be pretty intense.

The Verdict: B+
