Grand Hotel is picking up the pace and raising the stakes.
Sky Garibaldi’s disappearance has started to fall to the backburner amidst all these juicy telenovela-like twists.
In just one short hour (or 45 minutes if you’re counting commercials), Theresa infiltrated the Riviera Grand and set her sights on Felix, who Santiago learned was hiding out in the forbidden 606 room, presumably the room that Beatriz died in.
After this episode, it’s unclear which man should be trusted.
Both have found themselves in messy situations for different reasons.
Felix allegedly stole millions, which pissed a lot of people off. Santiago may have been responsible for turning him in, and yes, it’s possible his crush on Gigi played some kind of role, in his decision, but Felix deserved what was coming his way.
However, Santiago’s character is also questioned when he attacks Felix for suggesting that a young woman like Beatriz would have never suffered a heart attack. Felix accuses Santiago of killing his wife, triggering an emotional response from him. Again, Felix deserved the punch in the face as he was purposefully provoking Santiago to later spin a sob story about how Gigi’s new husband has been the bad guy all along in a sad attempt to win her back, but it also shows that there’s a much darker side to Santiago that we haven’t tapped into yet.
Santiago’s aggressive reaction could have been a response to hearing the man he loathed talk negatively about his late wife. But, it could also be an admission of guilt. Whatever it is, it’s obvious that there’s more to Beatriz’s death than meets the eye.
I wasn’t convinced she died of a heart attack either, but I’m not sure that Santiago was the one to kill her simply to get the rights to the hotel and to marry Gigi.
Gigi’s naiveness when it came to Felix was frustrating. She kept saying that Felix’s charms weren’t working on her but it didn’t take a lot for her to lose all faith in Santiago. And at the end of the day, she helped her ex-husband escape with the promos suggesting that she might run away with him to “figure things out.”
Santiago may have been lying about a lot of stuff but he never abandoned his family.
The meaning “it’s complicated” takes on a whole other meaning in this hotel.
Gigi’s hypocritical ways were also underlined with Felix’s return. She’s been icing out Santiago because he failed to tell her about the shady deals with Theresa and Mateo, but she also kept Felix’s return a secret.
And in addition to helping her daughter’s aid a fugitive, she even lent him Santiago’s nice clothes.
Santiago’s attempts to please Gigi backfired when it came to getting rid of Theresa.
He felt so guilty about upsetting his wife that he refused Theresa’s offer to turn over Felix.
Instead, Santiago took the high road allowing Felix to make a break for it and ended up getting stuck with Theresa permanently.
Are you happy now, Gigi? Theresa isn’t going to be some off-screen villain anymore; she’s requesting an office space in the hotel she’s investing in.
Mateo’s abduction fell flat as it didn’t reveal anything we didn’t already know about him. He’s loyal to Theresa because she turned his life around and his fear of what she will do if he disobeys her has now turned him into her lackey.
Mateo lost any and all depth when he began following her around like a little puppy. It’s amazing that he’s gone from wielding all the power at the Riviera Grand to being nothing more than an assistant who doesn’t say much.
There’s a lot of questionable things happening at the Riviera Grand, but the twins trying to run away with their father and comparing life on the run to a “semester abroad,” is pretty high on that list.
Are these two serious?
Yoli always seemed like the brighter of the two, but she lost all of my admiration when she tried to persuade her girlfriend into running away with her and her fugitive father.
Then, instead of letting it go when Marisa told her she wasn’t interested, Yoli tried to make her feel guilty about it.
What makes Yoli think someone could just uproot their life the moment she wants them too?
Marisa didn’t owe Yoli any explanation, and I’m not buying that she wasn’t interested because she was undocumented.
What a terrible way to weave in a real-life situation.
Marisa would have been a more respectable character if she had just stuck to her guns and told Yoli she didn’t want to be involved with this messy family drama.
No sane person would agree to something so risky and dangerous regardless of immigration status.
Danny’s investigation into his sister Sky is exposing a lot more than he bargained for.
Most of the shady dealings were mentioned previously but are news to him and the detective he’s working with.
Basically, with a little attention, they’ve figured out that Mateo and Santiago are both working in organized crime within the hotel, which could be the same thing Sky “found” right before she disappeared.
And since the Biscayne Crime Syndicate oftentimes kidnaps people for ransom, there’s a huge chance Sky might still be alive.
Personally, I think having Sky’s disappearance resolve itself during the season finale episode seems a little rushed.
Then again, Danny’s cover has been blown and he was fired from the hotel.
Whatever spell Alicia put him under, it’s caused him to act with his heart and not his brain, abandoning his original goal and altering the plan to include her.
Unfortunately, taking Jason’s advice seemingly backfired.
After finding out that Danny lied about having a girlfriend and meeting said girlfriend in the lobby, Alicia had it with the lies.
When Danny told her that he took the job to launch his own investigation into his sister’s disappearance and that he believed her father was involved, Alicia basically shut down.
Danny should have expected it as he accused her family while also admitting that he’d lied to her since the beginning of their relationship.
Heather wasn’t needed to blow Danny’s cover — he managed it all on his own.
In fact, Heather helped his cause by convincing Alicia that his heart was in the right place.
We all thought she was going to be a vindictive, crazy ex-girlfriend when in reality, she was hurt and wanted some answers.
Will Alicia be more observant now after hearing Danny’s musings and realize that he’s been right all along?
Javi returned from rehab and in an effort to avoid all triggers, channeled his attention into helping Jason get lucky with the ladies.
Jason’s your typical nice-guy-next-door, so it wasn’t surprising that he wasn’t interested in lying to the ladies to get them into bed.
However, he really needed to cleanse his palate of Ingrid.
Coincidentally, hooking up with another girl may have inadvertently gotten Jason out of the friend-zone with Ingrid.
She seemed into him when she saw him leave the girl’s room the next day with his shirt unbuttoned.
The fact that Ingrid lost both Javi and Mateo in the same day could have a lot to do with her feelings.
She’s all alone now and would likely want someone to mend her broken heart.
I’ll leave you all with a theory: Santiago said no one had the key to room 606, but Yoli did. Maybe it’s because she dated Sky? Maybe Sky made multiple copies and the key that Danny found in her locker is also to the same room. It’s possible that Sky could have known the real reason Beatriz died, which is why she had the obituary. Santiago could have “taken care of her” because she knew too much.
What do you think?
Is that the last we’ve seen of Felix?
Will Gigi leave with him?
Is Sky alive?
Will Alicia forgive Danny?
Cassie and Jenny may have been responsible for the Kleinssasers’ undoing, but that family was always capable of destroying themselves all on their own.
Blood was spilled on Big Sky Season 1 Episode 15 as we saw the demise of Rand and JW.
And it was a long time coming.
After the Kleinsasser family caught Cassie, Jenny, and Gil on their property, it was every man (and woman) for themselves.
And thankfully, they all made it out alive.
The same couldn’t be said for Rand and JW, who deserved everything they got.
When Rand tried to run Cassie over, she shot out his wheels ensuring that he crashed. The next morning when Rosie found Cassie unconscious, they found Rand bleeding out inside his cabin.
He survived long enough to see his mother one last time before bleeding out.
JW died not long after his psychotic brother. Cassie and Cheyenne found him just as he was gearing up to take out Jenny. A wrestling match ensued and his little sister pulled the trigger.
While Cheyenne definitely knew that her family was disturbed and wanted to break free from them, she wasn’t all that different from them either.
She wanted the same thing JW and Rand did — she wanted the ranch for herself. And she wanted to be free from the control of the deranged men in her family.
And she got it. With JW and Rand eliminated, the ranch now belonged to Cheyenne.
We never saw Horst pay for his sins, but considering that Cassie and Jenny had a sample of the toxic chemicals on his land, it’s safe to assume he was held accountable for all the skeletons on his property.
Does anyone else feel a little cheated for getting invested in Margaret’s storyline only to see nothing come of it? If anyone deserved to kill anyone, it should’ve been Margaret killing Horst.
Cassie and Jenny made sure justice was served on all fronts by taking down Sheriff Wagy, who admitted on video to plotting to kill Cassie.
With the Kleinsasser family taken care of, Cassie and Jenny are free to return to their biggest problem: Ronald/ Arthur.
I’m much more invested in all the Ronald developments than I ever was in the Kleinssaser mystery, which made it feel like a completely different series.
It would’ve made more sense if Ronald was somehow connected to the Kleinsasser’s, but instead, we’ve just been following two separate storylines about people who are all too comfortable with killing for their own benefit.
I’m glad to be circling back to the former one.
The episode kicked off with Arthur burying Margaret’s body and getting caught by Phoebe.
It was tense as he explained he was burying a dead deer, and then contemplated bashing Phoebe’s skull in with a rock.
I’m really glad he didn’t. Phoebe didn’t seem to buy Arthur’s story either — she’s a smart kid and knows that something is definitely up, which is why she lied to her mother.
Even when Arthur tried to remain normal, he gave off creep vibes.
Arthur was terrified of what would happen if Scarlet found out about his past, but much to his surprise, she didn’t even care.
It’s unclear how long Scarlet knew about his real identity, but I think that she knew the whole time Margaret tried to warn her and just hoped Ronald would get rid of her sister.
She even seemed less concerned about what happened to Margaret and more concerned with authorities finding Steve’s body.
Yep, turns out Scarlet was the one that bashed in her baby daddy’s skull (with a screwdriver!) as Margaret helped her hide the body.
Scarlet explained that Margaret held the crime over her head all these years, but obviously, this made Margaret an accomplice.
Wouldn’t it just be easier to let the authorities believe Margaret was the murderer? After all, the body was on her premises!
And Steve is the least of their worries since they’re really after Ronald!
However, Scarlet revealed she was cool as a cucumber with Ronald’s past crimes. In fact, she was even more attracted to him, which meant Ronald somehow met his perfect match.
If you didn’t think soulmates existed before, you definitely do now.
Scarlet may be even more deranged than Ronald since she owns up to what she’s done and is more than happy to give into her urges whereas he tries to tame them and is ashamed of them.
Having someone who shares his “interests” is bound to make Ronald much more dangerous.
Scarlet’s confidence likely won’t have a positive influence on him.
Will he go full-on psycho? And what does this mean for poor Phoebe?
Lindor and Geri — who is hellbent on revenge even if it might get her killed — were closing in on them, but Ronald’s storyline is far from over.
As the teasers for next week’s Big Sky Season 1 finale reveal, Ronald is going to get caught, and it will likely unearth something much more sinister than we ever anticipated.
Will Ronald take them to where all the bodies are buried?
What else was he involved in? And why do I have a hunch Scarlet will help him escape again?
Things in Lochsa are getting messier and messier by the minute.
Jenny Hoyt wanted to know why everyone was scared of the Kleinsasser’s, and when Rand drove the truck into the motel, I think she finally got her answer.
Not only does the family have blood on their hands — including Blake’s — but the body count is rising by the minute.
And the worst part is that they feel absolutely no remorse about it.
It’s not even what they’ve done, it’s how unhinged they all are.
They take toxic to the next level.
Rand’s out here talking about opening some kind of torture haunted maze because he enjoys seeing people be afraid, Cheyenne’s out here threatening to expose her brother’s for what they’ve done, and Margaret flat out said she will kill her husband and then sealed it with a kiss.
But that didn’t stop Jennny and Cassie!
Jenny escaped from the motel attack unscathed, but the same can’t be said for Angela. She tried to help and ended up dead, which seems to be the trend.
You’d think Jenny would take the hint and stop asking other people to put their lives at risk, but not a chance! Instead, she tries to convince Gil, Rosie’s father, to tell her what the K family has been up to all these years and why they have so much pull.
By speaking out and taking Jenny and Cassie to the back pasture where they unearthed the poisoned land (along with more corpses), he sealed his fate.
It’s kind of a lame reveal, to be honest. Yes, it’s terrible that they’ve been dumping chemicals and poisoning the land, but this is their big bad secret?
And is that what Cole Danvers found out and died for?
Jenny should take a cue from Cole’s demise. What’s the point of learning the truth if you don’t live long enough to report it?
She’s in way over her head here, especially now that they’ve been spotted snooping around the land.
As someone who has been watching Big Sky from the beginning, it’s clear the series isn’t afraid to take risks.
However, I’m less interested in the mystery of the Kleinsasser’s and more concerned about how Arthur (fka Ronald) is trying to navigate his new life while taming his urges.
I mean, he didn’t do such a hot job considering he killed Scarlet’s sister, Mary, which exposed him.
I’m not saying Ronald deserves a fresh start, but since he’s already started a new life, he could’ve just lived peacefully without raising any flags.
Instead, he’s on the run again, but this time, he’s taking Scarlett and her daughter, Phoebe, for a ride.
It probably wasn’t the smartest idea to buy a truck again since that’s exactly what Cassie and Lindor are going to be looking for.
This guy just can’t help himself. He’s his own worst enemy.
And truly, I still can’t figure out how Ronald managed to escape with Mary’s body when Cassie and Lindor were inside. Sure, they went into the basement, but that’s a close call.
Then again, Ronald is used to close calls. He had several with Scarlett and Phoebe throughout the episode when he saw blood pouring from Mary’s body while they were sleeping right next to it (ew!), when he was almost caught moving her bagged up body through the woods, and finally, when Phoebe saw him digging up a hole in the middle of the night.
I’m genuinely concerned for Phoebe. Ronald has never seriously injured a child (though he’s come close), but we know he’ll do anything to protect himself and his secret.
His little freaky spiel about nice animals being taken out by violent animals proves that he’s willing to do anything to protect himself because that’s life! He really tried to use the analogy to justify his actions. What a creep.
And while you might think Scarlett and Phoebe are safe because he “loves” them, that didn’t work out so great for his mother.
Plus, he already took out the taser when they almost caught him moving Mary’s body.
However, if he wants to preserve what he has with Scarlett, he can’t kill Phoebe as it would put too much heat on him.
Maybe he’ll tell her that he found a violent animal and killed it to protect them?
We know Ronald’s all too good at spinning a lie when necessary.
There’s also the mystery of Steve Lahren’s death. They found Phoebe’s father stuffed in a freezer in Mary’s basement, which likely means she’s the one that killed him with an ice pick.
But Scarlett was also confident that Steve was never coming back to bother her and her daughter. Did she have something to do with his death? Does she know what her sister did?
And if so, would she be fine with Ronald’s, er, pastime?
One thing’s certain: both Ronald and the K family are the “curse” of Montana.
Big Sky has been renewed for a second season with a brand new showrunner. Since the show has taken on more of a anthology vibe with each season focusing on a new mystery, it’s safe to say we’ll wrap up all the drama with the K family by the mid season finale.
Will the hunt for Arthur remain ongoing and bleed into season 2?
My only hope for the second season is that there’s less mysteries to focus on. Between the drama with the K family and Arthur, adding in the mystery of what happened to Cole and Steve is too much.
