Dopesick Episode 6 Spoilers

The sixth episode of ‘Dopesick’ is titled ‘Hammer the Abusers.’ The episode will likely focus on Richard’s attempts to maintain his company’s stand that OxyContin is a harmless drug, but that is far from the truth. Richard could create a narrative in the press to promote that Purdue is taking all measures to keep the drug off the hands of those who are abusing it.

Meanwhile, Bridget is likely to continue her aggressive approach towards trying to crack the FDA into helping her implicate Purdue Pharma. However, her personal life is getting affected by the case. Eventually, it will lead to the divorce from her husband, and we could see the genesis of the same in the new episode.

On the other hand, Billy is likely to continue struggling with the dilemma presented to him by his job as he becomes more and more aware of OxyContin’s effects. Seeing Finnix in a bad state struggling with addiction could send Billy to the point of no return. Finnix himself might attempt to stay clean after seeing the downturn in Betsy’s life. Rick Mountcastle and Randy Ramseyer’s search for concrete evidence against Purdue Pharma will also continue.
