Grandaddy Roy shot Glendon with a shotgun, leaving Eli and Martin to bury the body in the Exodus rollercoaster’s foundation.

Recap of Season 2 Episode 6 of The Righteous Gemstones
Even gunfire doesn’t appear to be able to keep the Gemstones down for long. When the four assailants stop firing and attempt to flee, Jesse steps outside the bus draws his revolver, and begins shooting, striking nothing. But suddenly Amber appears with her own gun and shoots one of the motorcycles, causing the rider to flee with the others. Following that, the police are notified. The sheriff brings up an excellent point. Despite the fact that the attackers shot a large number of bullets, none of them injured Jesse or Amber. As a result, they wonder if this is really a complex hoax.
Jesse is envious of his wife’s shooting abilities, which are praised by their friends and congregation members, while he is mocked for missing all of his shots. Pontius, his middle son, mocks him. Jesse persuades his close male friends and members of the Second Chance prayer group to join him in Memphis, where he plans to threaten Junior (Eric Roberts), the perpetrator of the attack.
As the Gemstone family meets with local police authorities following the attack on Jesse and Amber, Judy’s continuous demand for approval and self-centeredness irritates Eli once more. Later, BJ meets with the patriarch of the Gemstone family. BJ helps the elderly man realize that Judy isn’t all that different from him in a moving scenario. Their family is the epitome of a dysfunctional family. This manifests itself in an unusual way in Judy’s case. She has a tendency to hold things together until she can’t anymore. When they do emerge, they are frequently strange, boisterous, and even hostile. They always originate from a place of pain, though.
This is possibly the longest discussion these two men have ever had. By the conclusion, BJ appears to have earned the respect of his father-in-law. Meanwhile, Kelvin loses his status as God Squad leader to Torsten, the squad’s self-proclaimed most powerful member. Judy appears to recognize Tiffany’s predicament after being chastised by her father and treats her with remarkable gentleness. She tells the other woman that “Baby” Billy had abandoned his family on several occasions.
Ending of Season 2 Episode 6 of The Righteous Gemstones: Is Eli no longer alive?
In the episode’s final scene, Eli is attacked by what appears to be the same bunch of motorcycles as before. They do not, however, miss this time, unlike Jesse and Eli. In his car, Eli is shot many times. His destiny remains unknown at the end of the episode. Despite his assailants’ best efforts, the Gemstone patriarch is most likely not dead.
The character of John Goodman serves as a compass for the rest of his family. It would be a ridiculous waste of time to take Eli out merely for the sake of sensationalism. Whether Eli lives or dies, the mystery surrounding the attackers will continue to unravel on its own. Furthermore, a large part of Eli’s past remains unexplored, including what appears to be an abusive relationship with his father.
Who is attempting to assassinate Eli in The Righteous Gemstones S04E06?
Junior is without a doubt the most obvious suspect. That is the conclusion the show wants its viewers to reach. Jesse shares this viewpoint. He threatens Junior by arming his buddies with what he claims are precise scientific replicas of the slingshot David used to kill Goliath. The attack on Eli occurs shortly after. The inference here is that Junior not only chose to disregard the threat but also retaliated savagely in order to make the Gemstones realize who they’re up against.
Junior, on the other hand, does not appear to possess that ruthlessness. In fact, he appears to be somewhat inept and underachievement. He hasn’t got the life he had planned for, but that doesn’t mean he would hire assassins to assassinate someone. As a result, the Lessons are the only other option. If Eli is removed from the equation, they stand to gain a lot.
They most likely staged the attack on Jesse and Amber as a ruse to keep them (the Lissonses) from being linked to Eli’s death. The Gemstone Ministries is said to have a large presence at Zion’s Landing. But, with Eli at the helm, it was becoming increasingly difficult. As a result, the Lissonses most likely chose to impose certain adjustments.
