Meet The Mafia of the Tigers 2 on Netflix
The 2nd year plot of Mafia of the Tigers is set right after the first season release on Netflix – with most of the personalities enjoying a considerable increase in fame and profits from their businesses.
This trend, however, was not repeated with protagonist Joe Exotic. The eccentric businessman was sentenced to 22 years in prison after planning the death of Carole Baskin, in addition to violating several environmental laws.
“There’s an innocent man in jail. Everyone at the zoo is out there making money, and I’m here paying the price. If you guys really care, it’s time to talk,” says Exotic in a phone call from Texas Federal Prison.[display-posts orderby="rand"]
Season 2 of The Tiger Mafia also takes a deeper look at the disappearance of Don Lewis, Carole Baskin’s husband who disappeared without a trace in 1997 – and was legally presumed dead in 2002.
Many fans speculate that Carole killed her husband, and the new episodes of the Netflix production have everything to analyze all the theories of the public.
The trailer released by Netflix ends with Joe Exotic saying that “we have to put our differences aside or we will all die”.
The speech is possibly related to an offer of probation suggested by Carole and Howard, her current husband.
The Tiger Mafia 2 is on Netflix; see the subtitled trailer below.
