Beth has got it bad for Rio.

The fact that she’s pleasuring herself while imaging him smashing things the way he did at the dealership on the previous Good Girls has me a little worried.

Is she addicted to the toxicity? Is she addicted to the thrills?

Even when he demands $200 thousand to help them out of a bind, she doesn’t blink an eye because that’s just the game he plays.

Annie immediately picked up on the fact that she hooked up with Rio, and unlike Ruby, she’s not really impressed.

I guess the fact that Beth found out her husband didn’t just cheat on her with Amber, he cheated on her with four other women had something to do with her change of heart.

In fact, Beth needed Amber to score some of the cars so she could wash enough cash to pay Rio off since Stan revealed that the FBI was closing in on a body dumped in the wasteland.

I’m honestly shocked that Mary Pat threw them all under the bus and told Agent Turner that they were the ones who ran over and chopped up Boomer.

I didn’t think she had it in her, but I guess when fight or flight kicks in, you do what’s necessary.

Agent Turn should have picked up on Mary Pat’s fidgety body language though because she was clearly nervous that she’d get caught in a lie.

And when Rio moved the body, Turner began to think Mary Pat was lying so she threw Ruby and Stan under the bus.

I swear Mary Pat has no redeeming qualities left. This is why I said they should have never helped her out and become accomplices.

Once Rio “took care” of the body, Beth decided it was time to start fresh.

And boy, Dean was in for a surprise.

Starting fresh in her mind meant that he became the housewife and she took over the business.

After all, she did have a vision in mind for rebranding with a female empowerment angle.

Maybe then Dean would realize that having a few kids in a short period of time and taking care of them gave her the right to not want to have sex every night.

Can you believe this dude tried to explain his cheating tendencies on the fact that she was hormonal and depressed?

I still don’t know why she hasn’t kicked him to the curb.

My only concern with Beth taking over the dealership is that she’s going to go on a power trip.

That’s what Annie mentioned when she found out Beth was sleeping with Rio and I could see it being the case.

It’s why she’s so addicted to this lifestyle — because for once, someone is giving her the time of day and she can make the shots.

She feels important and invisible even though she’s almost gotten caught multiple times per episode.

Eventually, her luck is going to run out. Agent Turner is clearly watching her and following her every move. It’s only a matter of time before he finds something that will stick and my guess is that Beth believes Rio is going to come to aide when in reality, he’ll be washing himself of business with her.

He made it clear when he picked up the body for her. He’s not protecting her, he’s holding it as collateral for himself!

Wake up before it’s too late, Beth!

Annie and Sadie are on the outs after Annie told her that she was the “big dick” who slept with Gregg while Nancy was pregnant.

It’s big of Sadie to side with Nancy in all of this considering most children would be happy to have their parents back together.

I think Sadie just knows that Nancy is a good person who got screwed up in all of this because her mom is careless and only thinks of herself.

What did you think of tonight’s episode?

Good Girls Season 3 Trailer: Is Rio Alive?

Published

Good Girls Season 3 trailer

Good Girls debuted its trailer ahead of its February 16th premiere, and honestly, the only question on everyone’s mind is “Is Rio alive?”

At the end of season 3, Beth shot Rio three times and walked away assuming she killed him. Clearly, no one has ever told her about the “no body, no death” rule on television. And in general, it’s naive of her to think that Rio doesn’t have nine lives like a cat. From what we saw, Agent Turner didn’t kill Rio, so there’s a chance Rio is alive and plotting his revenge. 

He may even be the person ringing Beth’s doorbell in the latest trailer.

It kickstarts with Beth assuring the ladies that “he’s gone, we’re free.”

In celebration, they begin to print counterfeit money in hopes of making it rain all over their debt aka “they’re back in business.”

Except that living a lie based on deceit is never that easy and something ominous is lurking as someone arrives on her doorstep at the end of the trailer.

Turner’s voiceover says “that’s the thing about this game, just when you think your finished, something new pops up” as Beth opens the door and looks shocked.

Could it be the gang leader?

There’s also a hilarious part in the trailer where Dean lists off Beth’s rap sheet that reads like a CVS receipt and includes: breaking and entering, kidnapping, and Class 2 with an animal.

Oh, and they steal a bird, which we’ll assume comes with a good reason. 

Watch the trailer now!

Good Girls – King (2×13)

good Girls King Review

Wow.

That’s all I was able to muster up after the season 2 finale of “Good Girls.”

It’s been a distressing season as Beth dealt with the highs and lows of being “King,” almost got arrested, watched her friends almost get arrested, watched her longtime marriage crumble, only to realize she developed an addiction to living on the edge.

Oh, and she realized her biggest problem wasn’t Turner, it was the man she fell for, the kingpin, Rio.

All of that culminated in this explosive episode where Beth finally did what she had to do to truly become King.

Or, at least she thought she did.

By the middle of the episode, Beth was kidnapped while grabbing her phone from her car in the middle of the night.

There was one of two outcomes for this storyline;  either Rio would be the kidnapper or Rio would save her from the kidnapper.

The writers took a less romantic approach by making Rio the kidnapper as he whisked her away to some abandoned warehouse where he gave her a gift: Turner chained and beaten.

Rio, honey, no.

Beth was distraught realizing the gravity of his actions, but he kept insisting that she wanted him to help her and this was him helping.

He also made it clear that she had to deal with the problem since she’d wanted to become the King so badly.

Yes, Turner has been a pain in her ass; he’s pursued her, made her public enemy number one, and threatened her and her friends on countless occasions.

But, the thing is, Turner was doing his job.

Beth was breaking the law, and up until Boomer turned up alive, the FBI assumed she committed murder.

It’s not great to be hunted, but can you really blame the guy for doing what he’s supposed to be doing?

Beth tried hard to outrun and outsmart Turner, but when she wasn’t able to convince Boomer to show proof of life to the FBI, she concocted a plan to confess to his murder.

And when she was getting arrested, Marion, who finally redeemed herself, ensured that Boomer followed through and showed himself to the police thus clearing Beth of the charges.

She had it handled for the most part.

Turner would still have her on counterfeit money, but if she could walk back murder, she could walk back anything.

Until this happened.

Rio was right when he said Turner would continue hunting her and looking for ways to destroy her, but here’s the thing: he didn’t realize how bringing her in to kill Turner would help Beth.

And he overestimated Beth’s loyalty and love for him.

Then there’s the obvious problem that killing an FBI agent does more harm than good in the long run.

Gang leaders are always so quick to pull the trigger without realizing what Beth has learned rather quickly — it spirals out of control.

One bad thing leads to another bad thing which unravels another bad thing and so on and so forth.

Had she murdered Turner, she’d likely be high on the list of suspects considering she was just in there for the alleged murder of Boomer.

And eventually, they’d link it back to her and the jail time for killing an FBI agent is likely much higher than if you kill someone like a grocery store manager.

Beth wouldn’t be getting rid of her problem, she’d just be delaying the inevitable.

Then, Rio failed to realize just how broken Beth was. She may seem like she’s this boss bitch who has it all under control, but in reality, she was collapsing under the pressure.

When he handed her the gun to shoot Turner, he didn’t even consider the possibility that she would shoot him instead.

Turns out, what makes Rio so magnetic is also his biggest flaw: his ego.

He thought he had Beth just where he needed her because they’d slept together and she developed some warped feelings.

“He’s not my problem, you are,” she told Rio right before shooting him in the chest and then unloading two more rounds.

Jaw-effing-drop.

Beth shot Rio without even blinking an eye.

She was finally able to see through his charm, the charm that initially made her blind to the reality that he’s been her biggest enemy all along.

And while it hurt to watch Beth shoot him, it was understandable.

She’d never be free from the debt she owed him.

The writers have done an impeccable job with Rio’s character, though. Even when you know he had this coming, your heart still breaks because of the chemistry they had.

After her disastrous night, Beth coped in the usual way by baking.

Turner paid her a little visit to tell her that he’s getting the eff out of town to enjoy his life for a little bit. And who could blame him?

He almost died because of his obsession with this case.

This was also the first time that Turner acknowledged that Beth did some bad things but she wasn’t necessarily a bad person.

He saw just how manipulated she was by Rio and how she didn’t have much of a choice. Again, Rio didn’t see how looping Beth in would make her a victim in Turner’s eyes.

So, as a thank you for saving his life, Turner temporarily let it all slide so she could go back to being a “mom.”

But he failed to mention that after she ran out of the warehouse, he possibly helped Rio survive the shooting.

Apparently, after three bullets, one of them being to the chest, Rio somehow managed to not die on the spot.

I highly doubt that’s possible but we’ll go with it.

The ending doesn’t show us if Turner ever dialed 9-1-1 or not, but the way in which Beth tells the ladies that “he’s gone for good,” definitely makes it seem like he’s still alive.

I mean, the whole next season is going to be about Rio getting revenge, right?

It has to be.

Any love he had for Beth is gone now. She’s the “bitch” who shot him and left him there to bleed out.

Not only that but she “stole” the game from him.

Beth wasn’t just baking her regular sweets after her crazy night, she was cooking up fraudulent money.

“We don’t need him,” she told Annie and Ruby. Girl, don’t you ever learn?

The ladies all got a free pass. As in, they got off scot-free.

That means they would never have to consider robbing a bank at gunpoint to fund some dweebs facial surgery to stop him from going to the cops.

Why would they willingly butcher it?

So, to wrap it all up: Turner is outta here, Rio is may be dead but probably alive and more pissed than ever, Beth is naive and thinks she killed a drug kingpin, and all three ladies are considering continuing their anxiety-filled life of crime.

Beth and Dean also started gravitating towards each other, which is great for her family but not that great for the audience.

Will she try to rope Dean into her new fraudulent dealings?

Considering that I think Rio is alive, I hope he gets more on-screen time next season.

It would be a shame if he was truly dead because we’d never find out who he was!

There are so many questions surrounding his character, and we’ve yet to explore everything his life outside of calling the shots at the park bench.

Not to mention, Manny Montana has made such an impact with his take on Rio, something producers probably didn’t see coming. He’s the star of the show.

And if Rio is alive, did Turner just let him walk free?

Obviously, he sees that Rio is the mastermind behind all of this.

Is it a set-up for Beth? Is Rio working for the FBI?

Then there’s Noah and Annie. They are trying to make their relationship work, but it requires them to be completely honest with each other.

And the truth is Noah is from Arizona and has a son of his own.

And he may be moving to Arizona because the case has been botched.

Do you think these two will find a way to make it work? I was Team Greg for most of the season, but Noah has really grown on me.

He seems to really care about Annie and she deserves that.

What did you think about the season 2 finale?

Is Rio alive? Are Beth and Dean getting back together?

Will Beth succeed as the “King.”

How would you grade this season of Good Girls?

Good Girls – Jeff (2×12)

Good Girls Jeff Review

Marion has some nerve hiding Boomer and lying to Annie about it.

Oh yes, on “Jeff” we learned that Boomer isn’t dead, he’s alive and well, which admittedly, is slightly disappointing but also raises the stakes significantly.

If Boomer is alive, who the hell did Beth bury in her vegetable garden?

Pretty quickly, the ladies learn that it’s actually Mary Pat’s late husband, Jeff.

Why am I not surprised that she’s killed before?

That explains why she was so cool, calm and collected after running over Boomer.

“Jeff” brought back Mary Pat, who has been missing for several episodes and left us wondering what happened to her after she talked to Agent Turner.

Turns out, Mary Pat went into hiding because she realized Boomer wasn’t actually dead.

Way to let them know, Mary Pat

Beth, Annie and Ruby could have easily tied up loose ends.

Instead, she let them believe she chopped up Boomer into teeny tiny pieces and handed the ladies her dismembered husband to dispose of.

Mary Pat’s life is difficult, but it’s hard to have much empathy for her when she’s brought most of it upon herself.

She may have tried to remain in hiding, but if you’re persistent enough, as Beth is, you can find anyone.

Annie took one for the team when she chased Mary Pat and pinned her to the ground. That’s a scene I never knew I needed in my life.

The one thing that doesn’t make sense to me is how Mary Pat got away with cashing checks while her husband was deceased.

Everyone in the neighborhood knew she was a recent widow. And while she may have failed to report it to the government, she surely must’ve raised a few flags when the FBI got involved.

Marion and Annie’s friendship was one of the strongest aspects of the series.

Annie may be considered a screw-up, but she has a kind heart and she couldn’t allow Marion to fend for herself when Boomer was gone.

So finding out that Marion was lying and keeping Boomer tucked away somewhere in an attic like Anne Frank (damn) was disappointing.

How could she abuse her friendship with Annie like that?

And why does she keep making excuses for Boomer? Marion seems to be pretty competent, I’m sure she realizes Boomer is a little wacky.

I think Annie should use Noah’s FBI connections to bring Boomer in so they can at least be cleared of his murder charges.

Speaking of Noah, I was surprised that Annie confronted him about working for the FBI.

I was even more surprised that all he was able to respond with was “I love you.”

I don’t know when it happened, but sometime during the season, I fell for Noah as much as Annie did.

Hopefully, telling Annie he’s in love with her isn’t another play from his FBI handbook.

I understand doing what you have to do when your cover has bee outed but abusing someone’s feelings is low.

I trust Noah about 85% and do believe he’s developed feelings for her. Those longing looks and smiles filled with regret tell it all.

And we know Annie does have feelings for him, so I hope this doesn’t sway her to tell him even more.

Turner went as far as mentioning that he doesn’t even need a body anymore to pin the crimes on the ladies because he has a paper trail of counterfeit money.

And it gets worse — they know Ruby paid Stan’s lawyers $30K in fake cash.

Turner is closing in on them and as it stands, it doesn’t look like there’s a way out.

Will Stan go away for five years?

Beth’s been trying to keep her composure but internally, she’s freaking out that she’s on the verge of being arrested for murder.

Sometimes, I just want to shake her and scream “well, what did you think was going to happen?”

She reaches out to Rio to get some help but when he ignores her calls, Ruby breaks it down to her — he doesn’t care.

I know, it’s harsh because we want Rio to case. She wants Rio to care.

She wants to think that Rio has her best interests in mind, but the truth is, Ruby is right.

Rio loves to see Beth squirm, yes, but generally, he remains unbothered by everything that’s going down with the FBI.

It almost seems like he’d rather she take the fall so he’s clean.

Rio even confirmed that their relationship was strictly business.

“That’s it,” Beth asked with a hint of hope in her voice. “That’s it,” he replied.

But is it Rio? Is it really?

The chemistry between them has been off the charts and way more than just a “business” relationship.

Then again, maybe the writers are blatantly telling us Rio isn’t worth it thinking about and we’re just trying to find any reason to hold onto him.

Beth seemed to get Rio’s attention when she informed him that the FBI was onto his fake bills because the situation finally posed a threat to him and not just Beth and her friends.

Will he figure out a way to keep them all safe? When will his tennis playing friend come into play?

And how cute is it that Rio took his son to Legoland? See, there I go again giving him credit where credit isn’t due.

It’s possible that Rio’s coldness towards her will drive her back into a marriage with Dean.

The two planned on divorcing and even told the children, but after realizing that whatever she had with Rio wasn’t real, it does feel like Beth is going to give their marriage another shot.

Both of them seem to be on the same page about not working for anyone.

Dean just got fired from his new job so maybe he’ll come around to her “way” of doing things.

However, I have to say that Beth and Dean work better when they’re “divorced” and don’t have any expectations set for each other.

What do you think?

Will Boomer be turned over to Turner?

Is Noah lying about his feelings for Annie or is he really on her side?

Are things over between Rio and Beth?

Will Stan go to prison?
