You know that excitement you feel over watching an episode of your favorite show each week? Well, that’s not really a feeling we’re getting with Big Sky at all. We admit we were hooked when season one began but season two has just been kinda dull. As I mentioned before, it’s weird to say this is still season two. Maybe the reason season two is so dull is because season one did too much and now the bar is set a little higher. Season one basically gave us two different storylines with the Ronald/Rick Legarski thing and then it segued into the dysfunctional Kleisnassers.
Given that this was a new series, those were some interesting plots. Unfortunately, watching season two makes me feel the “been there, done that” vibe. Ronald is still on the loose and we have another dysfunctional family, the Bhullars. We are currently on episode 11 of season two and nothing in this season has made me feel excited. Big Sky 2×11 “Do No Harm” was a reminder of why I’m losing interest in this show.
Deal Or No Deal
Cassie and Lindor have made it to Wolf’s compound, and we now know that Ronald was in fact there the entire time including when Lindor went snooping around. Previously we thought that Wolf’s only reason for nabbing Ronald in the first place was to get another book deal for rehabilitating a violent human by using techniques used to train a dog. Well, we were wrong. We also learned how Wolf got Ronald in the first place because that was never known.
As it turns out, Wolf made a deal with the syndicate, yes, we’re talking about the drug cartel because apparently Rick was working with them too. It’s not really clear to me why Wolf even decided to make a deal with the syndicate and personally it’s a silly storyline now that we know the why and how. Wolf lets Cassie and Lindor know that he can help them find Ronald. Naturally they are skeptical until he tells them he knows where Ronald is because he micro chipped him with a tracker. Yes, just like a dog. He also informs them that Ronald is gravely injured and may not have long to live.
Of course, Wolf’s help doesn’t come without a price. Did we really expect it too though? I mean come on, he’s a Legarski. For Wolf to help Cassie and Lindor he has two conditions; one, he wants full immunity for his crimes and two, they have to help him bury his dear Aggie. The desperation to bring Ronald to justice is real so both Cassie and Lindor agree to Wolf’s terms.
Leave No Stone Unturned
The mission to bring down the Bhullar clan is getting more and more complicated. Both Jenny and Travis (Stone) are working the case and it’s become a shit storm. Jenny is trying to find and rescue Max and her mom Rachel who were kidnapped by Dietrich’s guy Bob. The plan is to hold them for ransom in order to get the drug money back that he stole. It’s funny that Bob took Rachel and Max considering he now knows that Travis is a cop who has been working undercover the whole time. Maybe he doesn’t care and thinks nothing will happen to him so he’s just doing what he wants including trying to take over Dietrich’s operation.
Travis knows he really messed up by letting T-Lock go and by getting further involved with the Bhullars. Because of this he screwed up Jenny’s investigation, so he had to admit his part in Max and Rachel being kidnapped. He didn’t plan for that to happen obviously but because he told Dietrich and Bob T-Lock had the money, that gave Bob the ammunition he needed to take them. that I know Travis wants to get revenge on Veer Bhullar and I will admit he was a little crafty in worming his way into their business by getting Ren to hire him but, what he’s doing is not going to have good results. The fact that Veer seems to recognize Travis doesn’t help either.
Despite Travis completely screwing with Jenny’s investigation, she and Deputy Poppernak were able to catch T-Lock and bring him in for questioning. He went peacefully and supposedly was going to turn himself in because I guess he does actually care about Rachel and Max more than I previously thought.
Other Stuff That Happened
- Ronald seeing Rick clearly means when he dies, he’s going to the bad place.
- Bob making Rachel and Max sit and watch old episodes of Dick Van Dyke had to be more torture for Max than Rachel because, black and white TV, blech!
- Bob makes wooden friends to keep him company because it reminds him of a simpler time…
- T-Lock’s name is Tracy. Now we know why he goes by T-Lock.
- I thought T-Lock’s sister Anita was going to be a good person with common sense until she basically told him to take the money and start a new life instead of trying to help Max and Rachel.
- “Oops I have thoughts.” – Alicia to Veer.
- I wanted Ren to call Jag out so bad for stealing her idea, but it was even more fun watching him squirm in front of their father as she asked him for more details on is “project.”
- Why don’t people know how to properly knock someone out in TV and film? Seriously, I’m annoyed with Max. She was smart enough to free herself, but she couldn’t knock Bob out until he was totally down. Come on.
- I didn’t even feel the need to waste any energy talking about Ronald and Scarlett because all you need to know is he’s dying and they’re on the run.
- “you know if I kiss you I gotta kill you right?”
- I’m with Cassie all the way for being angry at Wolf. He is 100% the reason Ronald was able to get out and kill her dad.
- Don’t know how things are going to turn out for Ren but her father really needs to stop underestimating her intelligence.
