The season premiere is set in 1968 Memphis, focusing on the experience of a young wrestler who accepts a sketchy job breaking thumbs for a local loan shark.

The wrestler is later revealed to be a young Eli Gemstone, the family’s stubborn patriarch, revealing a significant part of his backstory and setting the premise for the continuing season.

The previous season focused heavily on the lives and conflicts of the Gemstone children, while Eli played the role of the stubborn family authoritarian and not much else.

Danny McBride doesn’t get enough credit as a genius in TV… probably one of the best track records of all time. East bound and down, vice principals AND Righteous Gemstones 🔥
