The outlaws Season 2 Episode 6 Recap – the ending explained
The season ends with a further 72 hours earlier notation. This is right after Haines and Selforth bring in the entire crew. She tells Rani that she and her friends are in big trouble. Then Christian calls the Dean, asks who the new American is, and feels threatened about being cut out. The dean reminds him who he’s talking to and assures him he hasn’t heard from any Americans. Christian then looks like he’s thinking about something like he was in the room with Ben, Rani and The Dean at the start of the season.
The scene unfolds where Rani asks him to stop choking Ben and she tells him about a guy from New York who is going to smuggle drugs for her. The dean says nothing will happen to him under his nose and he will be cut. He also wants to meet the American. To me, Rani has an expression on her face that indicates this is a setup. Is Christian just paranoid and imagining it?
This could be a plan by Haines to use Frank and get The Dean to say something about wiretapping. Speaking of Frank, he stupidly puts a gun in a toy box to hide from his family. For example, his little granddaughter would never go in that closet, right? Well, his daughter finds it, and Frank can handle anything. They set up a hold called Brass Bunkum. (Well, I’ll admit I have no idea if I got that right. I’ve heard Walken say that twice now, and my screeners don’t have subtitles).
In any case, the con is on. The Dean shows up to meet Frank, who is posing as a New York gangster. The Dean initially wants to search him for a wire, but Frank doesn’t want to hear about it and pretends to have disrespected him. As he is about to leave, Rani and Ben tell him that his product is better than everyone else’s. The Dean stays, they make a deal with Frank’s fake gangster, and to put the icing on the cake, Frank tells the Dean he doesn’t work with kids. Rani and Ben are left out of the deal and pretend to be outraged.
The next day, Christian negotiates with Haines for immunity and a free pass to be released from prison. He tells her that the agreement with the dean will be signed at 2 p.m. at a nearby hotel. You see The Dean pull in but not pull out. Frank says that in a crowded place, you have to be the man with the product. Where you ask? Well, of course, the opening of the brand new community center. They manage to get The Dean there, and while John is going through some temporary panic and anxiety attacks, he emerges from the toilet stall pretending to be the man with the product.
Our villain snorts, agrees to the deal, hands over the money and John begins loading the cocaine into the buyer’s car as things falter. Of course, the Dean will not handle the product in his vehicle. That’s one of the rules that Christian taught everyone first.
Then another layer of grift unfolds like an artichoke. Rani and Ben run over with guns and demand the money from Frank’s Ralph. They take the loot and Ralph calls off the deal because there is no more money. However, the Dean tells them that this is his problem. He has to have the product delivered to London by 7pm tonight or he’ll get hurt. At some point during this little skirmish, they must have dumped the cocaine in his trunk, because five minutes later, Haines pulls him over, and when they search, they find dozens of pounds in the trunk. Then the story goes back to the present and the outlaws find themselves back at the police station while Haines tells them they’re in big trouble.
When Rani snatched the money, it turned out she was holding a box of cocaine from John’s van, not the money. They took it back to the center, put it in car wash buckets, and when Gabby was flirting with The Dean at his car and asked if they needed a car wash, Myrna put the drugs in his trunk. When Haines asked them about it, everyone said they were at the community center all day. When she asks her biggest fan, Diane, if the criminals she monitors have ever been out of her sight, she says no because she’s too proud to admit she passed out in a portable potty.
All outlaws go their separate ways. Myrna goes home and the ghost of the cop is no longer there. After talking to his wife, John is finally growing a couple – he’s set to sue his father for wrongful dismissal and a hostile work environment. Gregory demands a partnership in his law firm but is fired. However, he gets a date with the colleague he has a crush on. Gabby joins an addiction support group at the same community center where she helps rescue. Diane graduates and Sgt. Haines arrives at her graduation.
Unfortunately for Frank, he had the cruellest end of all. His daughter threw him out of the house because he could pose a danger to his grandchildren. Rani passes Christian his cut and the “line” on to his customers. I’ve noticed quite a bit of chemistry between these two now. She assumes he’ll go back to his old ways, but the last we see of him is throwing the phone down the drain and walking away.
Eventually, Rani and Ben set off to start their business. But when she tries to order lunch on the train, she has a glimpse of her future, and she doesn’t like it. She gets off the train and stands in front of the window as Ben sits. They look at each other and he knows she’s not coming with him. The last we see of Rani is her stealing an expensive convertible at the train station and driving away.
