It seemed way too good to be true. In fact, after four seasons, the writers will not let the family be free without one more challenge.

And that's exactly what will happen. In the final scene of Season 4, a determined Mel Satam stands outside their home with a cookie jar which he indicates contains no cookies. 

Once the Byrd family gained their independence through an underlying plot between the FBI, the Cartel and the Foundation, they seemed to have moved away from it.

He explained how he always wondered why they had a jar without cookies, so he investigated and found that it was actually a jar containing Ben's ashes. 

 Of course, this is the DNA paradise for Mail, who has been trying to find Ben for a while. This new discovery could well end the Byrd family.

However, it seems that finding independence has reassured Jonah about his loyalty to his family. She looks at the mail with a shotgun and her mother smiles, looking almost proud.

In the end, the family is as strong as ever. Poor Mail, he spent the whole season grafting. And ironically, Mail was closer to the truth than most people. He got to see the truth through this family, and he was willing to give up being a police officer to find out the truth.
