At the end of season 1, Franklin was last seen helping kids and the local economy by taking care of the whole block’s ice cream needs.

Franklin now has people depending on him — for their bills and their addiction. One missed payday or supply passing by with no Franklin could set the neighborhood on edge. By buying ice cream, he is trying to buy their loyalty. In the crack game, knowing that someone is loyal is more valuable than money.

Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson) has doubled down on his undercover operation, making himself and the CIA more vulnerable to extortion or worse. His decisions have become riskier, and now that he has killed Alejandro, who will watch his back?

Having been seen with the girl Alejandro killed, how many people will be looking for him? If he cannot cover his tracks, the cartel or CIA will have to terminate an asset.

Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta) and Lucia Villanueva (Emily Rios) have seized control of the family business the hard way. They see the future in crack profits over cocaine and want to control the market not just supply other gangs cooking operations.

Lucy let her snitching cousin live to serve in a figurehead capacity, which could prove costly far past just money. He has already proven that he cannot be trusted.

Avi the Isreali was being pushed out by the end of Season 1. Even Franklin had crew members haggling prices and following connections. Greed causes problems, as Avi is caught lamenting at the end of Snowfall Season 1.

Snowfall season 2 promises to have plenty of action, now that the hood has seen the money involved. Competition in the market makes it more volatile at every level.

Season 1 of Snowfall laid the groundwork for unfamiliar viewers on how exactly crack became so prevalent in the communities of Los Angeles and around the country. For many, it is the first and best-detailed explanation of the epidemic and the Iran Contra affair.

It also showed the allure and motivations for selling crack to your best friend’s mom. Snowfall covered a lot of ground in Season 1, much of it in subtle ways. Only occasionally did anyone’s best friend take a bullet, or cut a throat.

When they did, it was quick, no one saw it coming, and it mattered. The crack epidemic snuck up on America the same way. While Season 1 had to show the different sides and contradictions of each character’s predicament, Snowfall Season 2 promises to converge those different timelines.

According to co-creator Dave Andron, Season 2 of Snowfall will be a quick injection where last season was more of a “slow burn.”

Snowfall should be able to attract a wide audience. To kids, one can imagine Rick Ross holding the same allure Capone once had over kids. For those in their 30s or older, Snowfall is a historical document, much in the way of The Wire or Mad Men.

Snowfall returns July 19 at 10 p.m. EST on FX. Season 1 is streaming now.
