WARNING: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS.
Season 2 Episode 8 Recap: The Righteous Gemstones
The storey of ‘The Righteous Gemstones’ starts with a flashback scenario set in Memphis in 1993.
Junior (Eric Roberts) tries to persuade his father that professional wrestling has changed dramatically and that any business that isn’t one of the big ones is doomed to fail.
He even appears to persuade Glendon to hand over the baton and close down the gaming operations.
Glendon, on the other hand, forces Junior to bind himself and flees with the money after the fire sale. He later meets Eli, as we know, in the hopes of laundering the funds through his church.
The four motorcycle-riding assailants have yet to provide police with any information. Martin uses the money to try to break their quiet, but it doesn’t succeed.
A nursing home is where “Baby” tries to sell his wares. After that, he sees his sister, who advises him to reconnect with Harmon, who lives nearby.
Harmon, played by Macaulay Culkin, is an adult. He appears to be thriving. He’s married and has children, and he lives in one of those enormous houses that radiates riches.
Harmon offers to forgive his father if “Baby” Billy allows him to punch him once. Billy, affectionately known as “Baby,” grudgingly agrees and is knocked to the ground.
Gideon’s recklessness and courage while catching the attackers, Judy’s singing to him while he was on life support, and Kelvin (Adam DeVine) and Keefe’s remaining with him and helping him get back on his feet – Eli expresses his thanks to his family members at the Gemstone property.
Jesse is irritated by his exclusion, but he is unconcerned. Seeing his father in the hospital bed appears to have given him a new perspective on life. Amber, on the other hand, is disappointed by both of them and appears to accuse her husband of not being motivated enough.
Later, Eli and Jesse talk and the former eventually admits that Jesse has kept things going while he was away. Kelvin, in the meantime, takes on Torsten and successfully drags the enormous cross upright.
Torsten points out to Kelvin that he didn’t have to do any of this before he and the other muscle-bound men leave. He does, after all, own the house.
Season 2 Episode 8 of The Righteous Gemstones: Who’s to Blame for Gemstone Attacks?
Eli promises his children that if they get along, he would not confront Junior, but he recognises that some things need to be resolved, so he heads to Memphis.
Eli confronts the man in the midst of Junior’s pro-wrestlers. Junior, he believes, is after him as a result of Glendon’s actions.
Thaniel Block was alleged to have paid Junior a visit for an Eli interview. Junior was piqued, and he sought out the patriarch of the Gemstone family.
Junior has no intention of locating his father. This is logical, considering Glendon had pointed a gun at him during their previous encounter.
Junior considers it more acceptable than Glendon fleeing to Bolivia with the money when Eli says that his own father shot Glendon and that the latter is currently buried under a theme park.

The Gemstones are the ultimate of dysfunctionality, according to us. The Marshes are in a class by themselves.
Soon after, the big reveal happens. The attacks aren’t the fault of Junior. There’s basically no possibility he’ll lie. He doesn’t have any motivation to lie right now.
Eli has assured him that he will be forgiven for his actions. Even if he didn’t, the confrontation occurs on Junior’s turf. He could have easily made Eli disappear as a member of the Dixie mafia. This indicates that the attacks were carried out by someone else.
The assailants are released from police custody in the episode’s last scene. They appear to be well-funded and committed to their objective.

The Lissons are the most likely suspects, as determined by a process of elimination. Amber and Jesse don’t think they’ll be able to pay $10 million for Zion’s Landing till Eli is still living.
The attack on Amber and Jesse, on the other hand, was most likely intended as a ruse. When shooting at the bus, the attackers purposefully missed them.
