Big Sky season two has had its slow moments but episode 4 “Gettin’ Right To It” did exactly that. It got right to it. It was an hour of television that actually kept my attention and had a few gasp-worthy moments and also some questionable ones too. One of the things I have been enjoying this season is seeing Jerrie’s growth and her strength. She’s out there in the trenches working as a PI and doing her damnedest to bring Ronald down. Despite people like Denise and even Lindor telling her to let it go, she refuses to.
I did appreciate the fact that Lindor went with Jerrie to check out a reputable lead on Ronald. Jerrie has developed a strong bond with Lindor and it’s nice to see her open up to someone. She went through a lot in the first season after being kidnapped by Ronald and Rick and it almost broke her. I understand why she was so upset and short with Lindor when he came by the agency. He just can’t see how much he actually does mean to her and it drives me crazy. For Jerrie, every time Lindor comes around asking for Cassie, it’s like a knife in her heart. I honestly don’t know how he’s missed all the signals she’s been putting out.
That kiss she gave him spoke loud and clear and it was obvious he was caught off guard. Personally, I’m glad she went for it because if anyone understands the importance of living your life to the fullest it’s Jerrie. I am also now torn between who I want to end up with Lindor. I’ll be honest, when he first came into the show, I thought he and Jerrie had an immediate connection. I still do. I also thought he got along with Cassie too, but she’s been pushing him away so much that it’s hard for me to ship them.
Cassie has basically spent the first four episodes of season two rooting for Jenny’s relationship with Travis AKA Stone. Frankly, I’m a little annoyed by it. I am glad to see Jenny happy because like I said, Travis makes her ridiculously happy. In the same regard, why can’t Cassie also have some happiness? Jenny even tried to find out how things are between her and Lindor, but Cassie went into this whole thing about taking things slow and taking her son into consideration. I am not saying there’s anything wrong with that at all. I do think Cassie needs to relax a little. I want to see her happy. I want her to have a moment that makes her as giddy as Jenny is.
The Ronald/Wolf storyline is just kinda there. It feels like filler and nothing more. Wolf is still on his mission to “save” Ronald. We finally learned the real reason Wolf is so adamant about accomplishing this. He wants to restore the Legarski name because he thinks Rick tarnished it. So, basically this whole helping Ronald thing is a little self-serving. It feels like its more for Wolf than it is for Ronald. Like I said, the storyline feels like a been there done that thing and I am just over it.
Things with the kids have gotten a lot worse just like I said. You can’t witness a murder, steal drugs and drug money and think nobody is going to come after you. Bridger made a huge mistake the day he went in to try and file a police report because it has come back to bite him. Deputy Harvey who was there the day Bridger came in has kidnapped him and his holding him until he gets all of the stuff back. Max, Harper, and Madison now have to come up with a plan to rescue him. One thing I can say about Big Sky is even though the show deals with sensitive subjects involving women, basically every single woman on the show is strong including these three girls. Typically, in shows we see the girls get kidnapped and a man has to come to the rescue. That’s not the case with Big Sky, the women are the ones who do the saving, and I am here for all of that.
The ownership of the stuff is a bit spotty for me. Since Ren arrived in Montana, she’s been on a mission to recover what was taken. She and her bodyguard Donno meet up with Dietrich one of the men Travis is working for while he’s undercover. Ren and Dietrich go back and forth over who the stuff belongs to, and they bring up daddy again. Now, I don’t know if “daddy” is Ren’s actual father or if it’s a nickname. So, at this point we really don’t know who is in charge other than Ren now.
Ren is definitely a wild card, but she’s also composed in her own way. She doesn’t even flinch when she’s presented with a threat. She just lets it roll off like its nothing and still lets people know whose running things. She and Donno ended up releasing Tonya in a shocking twist, but they did it to frame Deputy Harvey. The plan doesn’t stop there though. Ren knows Deputy Harvey will sing like a canary if he’s confronted for a crime he didn’t commit. If that happens, she’s going down. Obviously, she can’t let that happen so she decides to take him out before anyone can get to him.
After Tonya shows up at Cassie’s agency and feeds her and Jenny some crazy story that Deputy Harvey kidnapped her, they go to Tubbs to report it. He doesn’t buy it. Tubbs goes into this whole spiel of “he’s a good cop” and blah, blah, blah and tells them they need to have plausible evidence to back up their claims. Tubbs has reached a breaking point with Jenny because she hasn’t been listening to anything he’s told her to do since she rejoined the force. She and Cassie want to go see Deputy Harvey, but Tubbs is having none of it.
I can’t say I blame Tubbs for how he feels because Jenny is really working like she’s still part of Dewell and Hoyt. I don’t even know why she didn’t just stay with Cassie because they are always together investigating cases. Jenny and Cassie wait for no one, and they do not let anyone stop them, so they decide to head off to Deputy Harvey’s in order to find out what’s going on.
The episode culminates with everyone showing up at Deputy Harvey’s house; Max, Harper, Madison, Ren, Donno, Cassie and Jenny. Max, Harper, and Madison’s plan seems like a good one but they don’t know the danger lurking ahead of them. Ren has Donno guarding the property so nobody gets in while she takes care of Deputy Harvey. Just as she is preparing to go in and tie up those loose ends, Cassie and Jenny are riding up and get ambushed. I mean, it’s just the worst. Donno is popping off shots left and right. Jenny and Cassie are in a very tough spot, and I have no clue how they’re getting out of it. I don’t know how anyone else is getting out for that matter.
- Cassie and Jerrie did a shitty job checking that construction trailer. They heard a noise coming from inside of it but checked the outside first. Then when they did go inside, they didn’t even walk all the way through it.
- Harper confronting creepy stalker guy in the van was a bad idea.
- Watching Ronald with the choke collar, I couldn’t help but think it was karma for how awful he treated the girls in season one.
- Lindor telling Jerrie he googled her and watched her singing was sweet. It was even sweeter that he tried to encourage her to follow her music dreams. That heart to heart was nice.
- Also, loved that Lindor gave Jerrie her respect for getting the drop on Ronald before.
- Lindor has been so busy trying to get Cassie to let down her walls that he hasn’t even noticed Jerrie let hers down for him a long time ago.
