And just when you thought you couldn’t hate Ronald more… 

After the Big Sky Season 2 Episode 8 midseason finale, what I really want to tell Wolf is that no matter how hard you try, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. 

Ronald couldn’t just let Cassie move on and live a peaceful life. 

Even when his mission was to save Phoebe and bring her to the ranch, he just couldn’t help himself and paid Dewell and Hoyt a visit, which is where he came face-to-face with Cassie’s dad. 

The moment Joseph and Cassie walked into the office to fix the pipes, shared a beer to celebrate buying the ranch, and exchanged “I love you’s” as he told her not to wait up for him that night, I knew he wasn’t going to survive the ordeal. 

While I was surprised that Ronald attempted to walk away from the situation without hurting Joseph, it was a given that he would retaliate once Joseph attempted to take Ronald down.

I just wish he had the strength to take him out too. 

Instead, Cassie had to come into the office and bear witness to the sight of her murdered father clutching a photo of his daughter and his grandson. 

I mean, could they hit us with a more heartbreaking scene?

Cassie had every reason to pursue Ronald initially, but now, she shouldn’t show any mercy if she ever gets her hands on him. 

Wolf, however, is partially to blame for this death because he’s allowing Ronald to roam free instead of just turning him over to the police. 

He captured Ronald right after he killed Joseph, but it was too late. The damage had already been done. 

Phoebe was right to be terrified of him. She has always known there was something off about him, but being separated from him was the confirmation she needed that he was a monster. 

When he took his eyes off the prize and made a pit stop, she should’ve made a run for it. Though my guess is that Wolf came and took her right before he knocked Ronald out. 

Part of me wishes that Phoebe would’ve been able to get Cassie’s attention, but that would’ve been too easy of an ending.

The war on drugs continued as the cartel went to great lengths to get their money back from Dietrich and the local kids.

The good news is that Travis definitely isn’t dirty. The bad news is that he’s in way over his head for personal reasons. He’s gunning for the Bhullar cartel to avenge his best friend’s death, which will never end well.

Ren and her brother, Jag, are two very dangerous people.

Travis was able to secure the drugs from T-Lock and get them back to Ren but getting the money has proven to be a bigger issue.

And it all boils down to those kiddos. Creary was right by warning them that they would never be safe because the cartel would never stop looking for their money. 

At this point, everyone seems to know the kids are involved. 

Ren harassed poor Bridger at his karate class; his Sensei didn’t stand a chance. 

After getting roughed up by Travis, T-Lock, who was reported missing, ambushed Max inquiring about the cash. 

The money has the power to unravel it all. 

Thankfully, Jenny realized that Max was connected to T-Lock and Harper, which puts her smack dab in the middle of the case. 

Hopefully, she and Cassie can get to Max and her friends before the cartel does. Otherwise, it’s not going to end well. 

Something tells me though that we’ll be meeting Ren and Jag’s father soon enough, and he likely puts them both to shame. 

Elsewhere, Jerrie finally made it back home to visit her dying mother. We didn’t get to see that interaction just yet, but it’s bound to be emotional as her mother hasn’t seen her since her transition, which isn’t something she approved of in the first place. 

What did you think of the midseason finale? Are you impressed with how the series continues to find new ways to up the stakes?

    Big Sky Review – Little Boxes (2×07)



    Big Sky Review Little Boxes Season 2 Episode 7

    Things sure got messy on Big Sky!

    I wish that Lindor found something when he revisited Wolf Legarski’s property instead of getting caught. 

    You would think a Marshal would’ve been better prepared. Wolf knew that Lindor was onto him, so he moved Ronald and Scarlett out of sight. 

    The whole incident snapped Scarlett back to reality, and she decided to help Ronald escape. 

    To be honest, I’m surprised it took this long. Wolf has obviously been brainwashing her, and she believed him until she saw Aggie almost kill Ronald and realized that these people that were holding them captive didn’t want to help them at all. 

    And based on the preview for the winter finale, Ronald has his sights set on our girl Cassie. 

    I truly hope nothing happens to her, but at this point, Ronald is the least of their problems. 

    They are digging deeper and deeper into this cartel situation. Doesn’t it seem like everyone in town is somehow involved at this point?

    Both Cassie and Jenny stumbled upon Tonya, who is now working for Ren. 

    While questioning Dietrich about Smiley’s hand, he told Jenny that Ren is part of the cartel. 

    And Jenny’s gut told her that something was off with Ren, though, she didn’t have any concrete evidence linking Ren to the cartel and the drugs. 

    It’s frustrating to see Jenny and Cassie so close yet so far from wrapping this case up with a neat little bow. 

    Hopefully, they’re able to find something out before Bridger and Madison’s parents meet the same fate as T-Lock. He kind of had it coming for stealing the drugs from Max and trying to make a quick buck, though. 

    Ren and Donno traced the last call Harvey made to Bridger and Madison’s parents, and when Ren paid them a little visit, she recognized Bridger from one of the crime scenes. 

    Will she realize that he’s the one involved rather than his parents?

    The poor kids have been through hell and back since finding the drugs and the money, and the last thing they need is to be responsible for their parent’s death. 

    They spent most of the episode trying to help the homeless man who saved them and made the connection that he is Seth Creary’s dad, a boy that drowned in a lake. 

    He has been helping the teens and keeping an eye out so that he can protect them. I truly thought the revelation would be something bigger, but oh well. 

    Meanwhile, Dietrich and Travis/Rand were trying to find out what happened to Smiley. When they encountered TLock at Smiley’s house aka the crime scene, Dietrich immediately thought he was responsible and asked Travis to put him in the hole. 

    Of course, Travis is undercover, so my guess is that he’s somehow going to help TLock out of this situation. 

    I wish that Travis and Jenny would just join forces and bring everyone down. 

    Travis doesn’t want to ruin his cover, but at this point, I feel like he has so much evidence against everyone! 

    I really hope nothing happens to him because man, I was feeling all the feels when he called Jenny to ominously tell her that he loves her. 

    Big Sky Review Little Boxes Season 2 Episode 7

    BIG SKY – ÒLittle BoxesÓ Ð Cassie and Jenny discover a gruesome message meant for Dietrich in their search to find Travis, leading them to fear the worst. Elsewhere, Tonya works to gain DonnoÕs trust and RenÕs ear, and the kids hope to stay out of sight as they tend to CrearyÕs injuries. Meanwhile, Cassie has an emotional breakthrough and Ronald and Scarlet work to break out on ÒBig Sky,Ó THURSDAY, DEC. 9 (10:01-11:00 p.m. EST), on ABC. (ABC/Karen Kuehn)

    This is a high-stakes game, so it’s better to let your feelings be known before it’s too late. 

    Which is why I guess it’s a good thing that Lindor and Cassie finally kissed. It’s about time. 

    In this game, there’s always big fish and bigger fish. While Donno, Ren, and now, Tonya, seemed like they were at the top of the food chain, in swooped her brother and his bodyguard to make them look small and pathetic. 

    Seeing mad man Donno knocked to the floor like that proves that we haven’t seen anything yet. 

    Also, is anyone else totally digging Donno and Tonya’s Huck and Quinn vibes? It’s like I’m watching Scandal all over again. Nothing like murder and cleaning up body parts to bond people. 

    What does Ren’s brother have planned? He wants his drugs, but Smiley and TLock had them, so where are they now?

    And how will this all end?

    How does Ronald’s storyline fit in? Will Aggie meet her match with Scarlett? It was foolish of Wolf to leave his wife alone.

    The anticipation for the winter finale has never been more palpable. 

    I’m just glad season 2 of Big Sky delivered a gripping mystery with plenty of big twists.

    Big Sky Review – Gettin’ Right To It (2×04)



    Big Sky Review Gettin' Right to It Season 2 Episode 4

    Big Sky has proven time and time again that it’s exceptionally good at cliffhangers. 

    There were plenty of solid ones during Big Sky Season 1, and only four episodes into the second season, and it continues to be the most compelling mystery on television. 

    One thing is clear — Jenny and Cassie make a hell of a team. Even when they aren’t working together, they manage to crack the case and make more progress than the whole police force. 

    When Tonya walked in through those doors, she immediately pointed the finger at Harvey. While we know Harvey isn’t the one that kidnapped her, he’s not entirely blameless either considering he is working for the cartel and involved in the kidnapping of a child. 

    Ren’s whole plan was to incriminate Harvey and then take him out before he could tell the cops anything, but what she underestimated just how good Cassie and Jenny are at their jobs. 

    They’re perceptive as hell. Ren put on her best act to get them off her scent, but they both found the coincidence of the “new woman” too good to be true.

    They can’t be fooled. 

    Ren also didn’t anticipate that the group of kids would once again thwart their plans. 

    When Ren showed up, the whole place was crawling with potential witnesses. 

    And Cassie and Jenny are right there, too, albeit, dodging quite a handful of bullets. 

    Donno really took it to heart that no one is allowed to make it down that road. 

    It’s unclear how this is all going to unfold, but let’s just say that Harvey didn’t anticipate all these visitors when he kidnapped poor Bridger. 

    You have to hand it to the teens for holding their own against two drug syndicates. This is a whole drug war, and the people messing everything up are a couple of teens that were in the wrong place at the wrong time. It’s impressive. 

    At this point, Ren is also not really playing it safe. She’s crossed paths with every single person, so if they really wanted to, they could connect the dots and place her as the leader of the cartel. 

    She’s not exactly lying low and remaining incognito. 

    To top it off, Trevor would be able to confirm her involvement. The perks of remaining undercover, I guess.

    This is definitely one of the more exciting mysteries that Cassie and Jenny have stumbled upon. And why is it that they always have to go against the grain and fight Tubb on what to do?

    After everything that went down with Ronald, he should trust their judgment. He wanted Jenny back on the force only to continuously ignore her gut instinct and tell her to follow protocol. Why would he hire her if he knows that isn’t her thing?

    Admittedly, they are being fooled by Tonya, so Tubb is technically right in not making any accusations without all the facts, but Harvey is still dirty. Would it kill him to at least investigate the claims without raising any flags?

    The latest mystery makes the whole Ronald Pergman storyline less interesting. 

    Jerrie and Lindor are continuing to pursue leads, but I wonder if the cabin they checked out was the actual place where Ronald is being held by Wolf. 

    What if they actually found him and simply missed him?

    Why else would this cabin be so important? And there was so much emphasis on the cereal!

    Jerrie was made aware of Wolf Legarski, so you would think that would be one of the first places they’d check out. 

    Personally, I’m not really invested in the Wolf storyline. He’s trying to avenge the Legarski name by rehabilitating Ronald? Why? It doesn’t seem believable in the slightest. 

    Jerrie and Lindor have gotten close, but I hope that the kiss was just a friendly “thank you” on her part. He’s been there for her, he’s looked out for her, and he’s been a good friend. 

    Let’s keep it at that. 

    It would be pretty shady of her if she moved in on Lindor considering she knows how he feels about Cassie. We all know Cassie likes Lindor too but due to her past trauma, she’s taking it slow.

    How do you think this will all unfold? Will they make some big breakthrough on Ronald?

    Will Cassie and Jenny crack the case of the missing drugs and drug money?

    Big Sky Review – You Have to Play Along (2×03)



    Big Sky Review You Have to Play Along Season 2 Episode 3

    Things are getting quite messy on Big Sky Season 2 Episode 3.

    While Cassie and Jenny may no longer be working together, their roads have intersected over the drug deal gone bad. 

    It’s honestly awesome to see them tag-teaming yet another mystery. There’s no one better in the business, I just wish they got the credit they deserved. 

    After Big Sam and Ringo’s bodies washed up in town, it became clear that they were dealing with a much bigger issue.

    That was only further emphasized when it was revealed that state police were also working the case. And Jenny had a man on the inside as Travis, who she has been hooking up with, is working it while undercover.

    It really does pay to have connections in different places. 

    However, much of the episode hinged on Tonya’s disappearance. 

    Big Sam’s death would’ve been merely an investigation if it hadn’t been for her disappearance.

    Ren and Donny thought she could help them find the drugs and money, but instead, they only got Cassie and Jenny hot on their trail. 

    They should’ve just relied on Harvey to find their product instead. That way, they wouldn’t have raised so many red flags. 

    While Tonya was successfully able to escape Donny, it was infuriating to watch her act like a lamb for slaughter. When you’re life is in danger, you run like hell — you don’t keep looking back to see if the bad guy is coming.

    There were also so many weapons in that kitchen that she could’ve used to defend herself. Why didn’t she?

    The only thing her bravery managed to do was get an innocent kitchen worker killed. 

    Okay, fine, I guess it also put her on the map so that Cassie could zone in on a location and find her. 

    Cassie and Jerry zoned in on the trailer, but  I wonder how Ren will get out of this one?

    The last thing she wants to do is murder a private investigator. Surely, that’ll raise plenty of flags and ensure she never gets what she came for. 

    Ren also doesn’t blend in. The unique fashion style isn’t working in her favor. 

    While Cassie was much closer to finding Tonya, Harvey was hot on the trail of the kids, who witnessed the accident and got away with the money and drugs. 

    Every time I see Harper and Ruby on the screen, I get a little anxious. I wish they just dumped the drugs and put this whole mess behind them. 

    Big Sky Review You Have to Play Along Season 2 Episode 3

    BIG SKY – “You Have to Play Along” – After officially teaming up, Jenny and Cassie sit down with Tubb who reveals that this one goes far beyond their jurisdiction. Realizing Travis may be a man on the inside, Jenny reaches out for intel and learns the cartel is involved. With Tonya still missing, Cassie and Jenny fear the worst and kick their search into high gear. Meanwhile, the kids’ plan continues to fall apart, with secrets and scheming threatening to land them in hot water, on an all-new episode of “Big Sky,” THURSDAY, OCT. 14 (10:00-11:01 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (ABC/Michael Moriatis)

    Haper is definitely naive about wanting to sell them, and it’s irritating that she keeps assuring Ruby that everything will be okay. 

    She absolutely cannot promise that, especially because there’s a witness to the crime.

    Bridger also gave himself away when he went to the station to report a crime. When Jenny showed Harvey the rock, it was basically a tell that the kid had the money and drugs. 

    It’s getting quite messy for everyone involved, and at the end of the day, that puts them all in danger. 

    Even Ren, as mean as she is, has a boss she needs to respond to. 

    The situation with Ronald and Scarlet keeps getting weirder. Wolf Legarski was put on Cassie’s radar, but for now, they’ve put that investigation on hold. 

    Meanwhile, Wolf is really determined to reform Ronald through any means possible, including a taste of his own medicine — violence. 

    At least he’s treating him like the animal that he is. 

    Scarlet has seemingly adjusted pretty well, but that might be because she’s afraid of what will happen to them if they leave Wolf’s compound. 

    The truth is that they were never free — they were two of the most wanted people on the planet. 

    I can’t help but wonder if Scarlet’s behavior is all an act as part of a more elaborate rescue plan, but the more I see her, the more I think she believes that Wolf will be their savior. 

    I can’t wait till we see how Wolf found these two in the first place. 

    Can you imagine if Jenny and Cassie finally found Ronald and he was a completely changed man? 

    What did you think of the Big Sky episode? Are you liking how the mystery is panning out this season?
