We are finally back with more Big Sky, and ABC decided to start us off with a double dose by showing two episodes; ‘Big Sky’ 1×10: “Catastrophic Thinking,” and ‘Big Sky’ 1×11: “All Kind’s of Snakes.” Both of the episodes uncovered a lot, so let’s break them down.
Ronald’s Got A New Look
It’s been three months since Ronald escaped and he’s living a new life in disguise under the name Arthur. He’s met someone, an unsuspecting young woman named Scarlet, who’s got a little girl named Phoebe. Ronald is trying to move on, but failing miserably, because it’s clear he can’t keep his urges in check. Anytime you pass by a big-rig and have a flashback of kidnapping two young girls and it fills you with joy, that’s a problem. It’s only a matter of time before he slips back into his old habits, which is pretty clear considering he snuck back into Helena to spy on Jerrie and go to his mother’s gravesite.
I Was SO Wrong About Scarlet
Okay, so I was so wrong about Scarlet (Anja Savcic). Turns out she’s not as sweet and innocent as I thought. Scarlet stumbled on Ronald’s stun gun and well, it turned her on. She started asking Ronald if he had some secrets he wanted to share, and that it was okay if he did. She then told Ronald that her dirty secret was that she loves to steal and it makes her feel like a God. Ronald didn’t seem to like that particular statement and he may have met his match. I found myself thinking I had just stepped into another Joe Goldberg/Love, ‘You’ type of relationship. Not sure where things are going to go with Scarlet and Ronald, but I think it’s going to be interesting.
For the last three months Cassie and Jenny having been working together on Domestic cases. Domestic cases are things like infidelity, etc. One particular case starts off like any other. They assume they are looking for a man that’s cheating on his wife, but it then spirals into something more. Both Cassie and Jenny stumble into a world of Thoroughbred horse semen collecting. Yes. That’s what I just said. This leads them deeper still into the world of the new characters; the Kleinsasser family.
Jennys’ ex-boyfriend Blake Kleinsasser is in a heap of trouble, and she seems to be the only one that can get him out of it. Blake is in jail for assaulting the ranch hand’s daughter Rosie, but he claims he was set up. He doesn’t know who did it, but I think he suspects it’s someone from his family that doesn’t want him to get control of the family farm.
We Love Jerrie
Jerrie is amazing and we can’t, and won’t stop talking about her. She’s working as a receptionist for Cassie and Jenny, and it makes us happy because she’s found something to keep her busy and she seems happy. At least until that douche Ronald starts making creepy phone calls where all he does is just breathe on the other end. Jerrie wants to move on with her life, but Ronald is making that very difficult.
U.S. Marshall Lindor
U.S. Marshall Lindor breezes into the detective agency on a mission and catches Cassie off guard. He makes quite the impression and lets her know right off the bat that he has come to bring Ronald in. Cassie is hesitant to work with him at first, but their common goal of capturing him is definitely going to bring them together.
“Shoots” and ladders
Family game night with the Kleinsasser’s is ummmm… interesting. I’ve never seen a family take Chutes and Ladders so seriously, but if papa Kleinsasser says it’s family game night, it’s family game night. The Kleinsasser bunch is a super dysfunctional family. Horst, who has suffered a stroke, is dying and working on who is going to get his legacy once he’s gone.
Mama Margaret is so filled with anxiety over her family drama she’s staying medicated to get through it all. Rand is a meth head with a lab and a whole lot of sick twisted thoughts in his head. Some of those thoughts involve Jenny. Cheyenne, seems like she might be okay but it’s still early so we’re keeping our eyes on her.
Blake, well, he’s in jail right now and his dad has every intention of keeping him in there. Lastly, there’s John Wayne, who also seems like he might be the more sane one of the bunch and it would seem as though Horst has plans to leave him as the head of the family when he’s gone.
Cassie gets kidnapped
While out at the local bar where Blake and Rosie were seen prior to her attack, Cassie has a run-in with Cheyenne. She tries to get a little information on the Kleinsasser family but Cheyenne just gives her a warning right before she bumps into John Wayne on her way out to meet up with Jenny.
As Cassie is driving, she gets pulled over by one of the cops who is clearly working with the Kleinsasser family. He immediately removes her from the car, handcuffs her and tosses her in the back. Cassie assumes she’s being taken to the Sheriff station until they pass it up. The situation does not look good and we have no idea where she’s being taken, but we are freaking out.
Jenny is in trouble too
Not only is Cassie in trouble, Jenny is too. While Jenny is out canvasing the Kleinsasser property, she shows up at Rands place and is busted by some chick on his couch. Jenny takes off with Rand hot on her heels and as she’s running away, she falls into a pit full of gross dead things. Rand has her right where he wants.
- I have to apologize for underestimating Denise all through the first episodes of Big Sky. She’s trustworthy after all.
- Blake’s dad really rode up to the jail just to put some farm dirt in his hand?
- Also, the Kleinsasser families got some pull to be able to roll up to a jail in the middle of the night and pull out a suspect like nothing.
- Who is Kelli and what did Ronald do with her?
- Why are all of the men in Big Sky such dicks?
