Before the Ballers season 3 finale, "Yay Area", it would have been hard to call Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson) a hero in that sense. Certainly, his good-hearted nature made him easy to root for and his personal flaws made him relatable, but the track he was headed down this season raised questions about his true motivations. Was Spencer only concerned with winning for the sake of winning Or was there was something else driving him to make this Las Vegas Raiders deal happen

As a viewer, it's the type of move that makes you smile because seeing integrity win over greed, illusions of grandeur and self-importance is indeed so rare in real life. And yet, it is also a completely believable next step for Spencer to take given his evolution and progression as a character over the past three seasons. After all of his soul searching -- a time in which his ambitions revolved around personal enrichment and his own legacy -- it seems appropriate that his personal journey would bring him to this point, where he is able to rediscover what is actually most important: his friends, his clients and continuing to grow the business that he helped build from the ground up.

Although the finale was satisfying from a character perspective, there are questions of how and where the show's narrative will proceed from here in season 4. After what appears to be a plot reset of sorts with Spencer and Joe (Rob Corddry) right back at the helm of ASM, the finale hints at a variety of possible new settings for the series as Spencer speaks of expansion. But of course, a change of scenery is far less intriguing than the potential drama and conflict that might come with the business becoming more prosperous. Certainly, seeking more high-profile clients will breed competition and create the type of high-stress situations ripe for both comedy and drama.

But regardless of the narrative direction Ballers heads in, the show's success will likely continue to hinge on the handling of its lead character. Thus far, we've seen Spencer Strasmore grow and develop in a variety of ways in each season of the series, but it's clear he still has some things to figure out. Toward the end of season 3 and after a tense conversation with Chloe (Serinda Swan), he begins to realize furthering his own legacy isn't the right reason to have a child. So, can he admit to himself that perhaps fatherhood simply isn't for him Or is there something deeper at his core that he has yet to discover about himself We're looking forward to Ballers continuing to peel back the layers of its charismatic central character in season 4.

Checking in on Ricky Jerret he has arrived (with flowers) to Amber's house but she doesn't look too thrilled to see him. He tells her that his priorities have changed and that their baby is all he cares about so will she please give him another chance. She tries to give him the mean face to make him sweat but then she drops her guard and kisses him. To demonstrate how serious he is, Ricky takes a video announcing how he is retiring from football to focus on being a father. He posts it on Instagram for all to see which unfortunately includes "T." who just shakes his head in disbelief. Looks like next season for Ricky will be a whole lot different.

Once inside Spencer gives a presentation unlike he's done this season. He gives a speech, but not one where he has to curse or over embellish about the how they will be doing a huge movement to change football. He simply speaks about the joy of the game and the wonderful feeling it gives to watch it. The twist is he tells the owners there's no reason to leave Oakland at all! That's when he directs them to look out the window and see the hundreds of fans all done up in their Raiders gear chanting in the name of their team. Clever idea by Spencer to show the owners they will upset a lot of people if they take the team out of the city.

The second season of Ballers wrapped up with a lot of cliffhangers leading into the offseason. Spencer Strasmore, played by Johnson, failed to get approval from the NFL Players Association due to a grievance filed by former friend Eddie George, who he screwed over in a financial deal years ago.

When we pick up in season three, Spencer appears to be free of pain as he is playing basketball with client and friend Ricky Jerret, who had loaned Spencer $5 million last season to help him out with buying Anderson Sports Management. Spencer had promised Ricky he'd pay him back in full within a year, of which he has only a few months to go. Ricky does drop a big bomb, as he is concerned he may have gotten a girl pregnant as she is late and won't answer his calls.

The fact that they are trying something different with him pitching the team in Las Vegas is a nice change of pace after last season partially feeling like a retread of season one at times with his job.

The servers just went live after the Fortnite update today. Since the new season is still in its nascent stages, it's unclear if the Ballers will be available at a different location or not, but for now, the Ballers can only be found at the POI called Rave Cave.

These Ballers are quite resistant to enemy fire and can take a good amount of beating before finally succumbing to the damage. As mentioned before, the game is still in its early stages, so there's a high chance that the Ballers will be available at other POIs as the current season progresses.

As noted on the map below, Ballers can be found just north of the new Reality Falls biome. The exact location is known as 'Rave Cave'. To the east of the location is a shack, inside multiple Ballers can be found. Then, just west of the shack is a large Cuddle Team Leader head, if you head inside the head on top of the hill, you will find more ballers to use.

There's not much to glean about Curry's season three storyline in the short clip, but it's clear that Strasmore, who is a retired NFL player turned financial advisor, wants to take his business to a new heights.

HBO is clearly confident in its current slate of shows, and for good reason. A pair of successful summer comedies from their respective debuts, Insecure has set social media alight every Sunday night, while Ballers' Season 3 ratings have been very strong, according to TV Series Finale, even if they dipped significantly after the Game Of Thrones finale. And the show has always done well in the numbers game, because according to Deadline, the first season averaged HBO's biggest half-hour ratings until that point.

With those successes, it seems logical to assume that Ballers will return with another 10 half-hour episodes in the summer of 2018, as it has for the past three years. Johnson announced the news of Ballers' fourth season on Instagram, writing in his caption: "Delivering a lil' package of gratitude. Thanks for rockin' with us and enjoyin' Ballers. When I get the happy calls from studios & networks, first thing I do I reach out to you guys. Then I go have a shot of tequila. Or three. Appreciate y'all and have a productive day."

Ballers Charles Greane (Omar Benson Miller), Ricky Jerret (John David Washington), and Vernon Littlefield (Donovan W. Carter) are also back for season 3 and we will have to see if one or more of them end up joining Spencer in the Nevada desert.

Litchfield Prison never lacks for excitement, whether developments be good or bad. That will hold true in Orange Is the New Black season 4, but this time around, expect more of the bad. Netflix unveiled the new trailer today, and it looks like this could very well be the most intense season yet.

While photos from season 4 have already revealed some of the tension to come, the trailer really cements it. Its two-minute-20-second run is full of loaded looks between characters, faces filled with agony and fear, and hints of danger to our favorite group of inmates. "I do not like where this is heading," we hear at one point.

Apparently, Fortnite players might be able to find Ballers spread across the map, but the sure-fire way to find one is to head over to the new point of interest, Rave Cave. This location has taken over Command Cavern, a POI from the previous season, and has a couple of Ballers to grab. 59ce067264
