The Kinsellas are a clan that deals drugs for a living. A conflict develops when their primary supplier (whose boss is Eamon Cunningham, played by Ciarán Hinds) insists on becoming their only supplier. Frank (Aidan Gillen), the head of the family, wants to go along with the idea though he doesn’t like it because the Kinsellas’ organization is not large enough to effectively take on Cunningham.
Frank has a sister, Bridget “Birdy” Goggins (Maria Doyle Kennedy) and all we see her do (at least in this episode) is stage a welcome home party for Michael (Charlie Cox) who has just been released from prison. Michael has one brother and that’s Jimmy (Emmett J Scanlan), who is married to Amanda (Clare Dunne). Jimmy and Michael are the sons of Frank’s brother Bren, whom we have not yet met.

Last episode, some of the folks who work for rival drug boss Eamon Cunningham (Ciarán Hinds) poked fun at Frank Kinsella’s son Viking (Sam Keeley), who, along with a friend of his did a drive by shooting of those fun-poking fellows. Then Viking told Frank that he did not do that. Frank (Aidan Gillen) believed him, but Cunningham got reliable information identifying Viking as the shooter, and so had some more of his boys ambush Viking outside a bowling alley. Viking was seriously, but not fatally, injured. Jamie (Cian Fitzsimmons), the son of Amanda (Clare Dunne) and Jimmy Kinsella (Emmett J Scanlan), took an unintended bullet to the brain and died instantly. Continue reading →

A perfect emotional storm causes the Kinsella clan to initiate a series of events that will inevitably lead to their destruction. Frank (Aidan Gillen) has issued a stern warning to his family not to retaliate against Caolan Moore (Lloyd Cooney), the guy responsible for killing Amanda’s son Jamie. Amanda (Clare Dunne) keeps prodding her husband Jimmy (Emmett J Scanlan) into going after Moore, implying that he’s a bad father if he does not. Michael’s daughter Anna (Hannah Adeogun) turns up at Jamie’s funeral and tells him that she under no circumstances wants to talk to him about anything, ever, and is quite convincing about it. Michael (Charlie Cox), who was avoiding involvement with the family business in hopes of being allowed to see Anna again, volunteers to do the shooting after Jimmy asks him to be his getaway driver.
