Fans of TNT’s Animal Kingdom were shocked Wednesday when they saw Ellen Barkin’s Janine “Smurf” Cody meet her maker in the night’s episode. After four seasons, the matriarch of the Cody crime family died and fans took to social media to show their displeasure — and Barkin reacted
After the penultimate season 4 aired, the official Animal Kingdom Twitter account tweeted: “Rest in Peace, our Queen. Tell us your favorite Smurf moments from #AnimalKingdom below.”
Many fans bid farewell while Barkin cheekily tweeted “Next episode Smurf’s will is opened. She left her boys a hit tv show.” She added, “Carry on Codys…well, maybe not all Codys.”
She sent off her tweet after liking some tweets that weren’t too happy about Ep John Wells’ decision to write off Barkin — who is the lead of the show.
