With all the drama happening this season on Good Girls, there’s no doubt Ruby, Beth and Annie (Retta, Christina Hendricks, and Mae Whitman) are making aggressive moves, albeit, rather dangerous. Beth and Rio (Manny Montana) finally found synergy, but at what cost?
(WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!)
Our dysfunctional FBI agent, Phoebe (Lauren Lapkus), finally comes face-to-face with Ruby at Good Nails. Ruby basically played her hand by inspecting the $10 dollar bill Phoebe gave her and Phoebe used that to her advantage, gaining insight into what Ruby knew about counterfeit money. When Ruby scooted (literally on her scooter) to get change, Phoebe stole her cell phone. Yes, I know…how did no one in the nail shop see what was going on?
Dean (Matthew Lillard) and Beth went to see Gayle (Ione Skye) about buying the hot tub business from her. The two women finally had a nice nasty exchange, with Beth making sure Gayle understood she meant business, and she knows what happened with Dean. When Gayle tried to finagle on the deal, Beth made some boss moves. Beth stole all of the hot tubs, forcing Gayle to submit to the purchase. Of course, Gayle was oblivious to what really happened. Dean finally had his own store again, but has no idea that Rio is a part of it. The purchase of the store was a way for Dean to dismantle the synergy between his wife and her boss.
In order to repay Stan (Reno Wilson) back the money she took to buy the donor family a car, Ruby suggests stealing from Stan, or least his job. Our favorite criminal moms devise a fire starting plan. As Ruby, distracts Stan, Beth and Annie deal with the armored car driver, replacing the real money with the fake. A suspicious Stan attempts to continue with his normal routine until Ruby tells him not to go outside. Stan NEVER listens! He goes to the truck and investigates the bag. After checking the bags himself, he lets the driver know everything was good. Later that evening, Ruby replaced the money she borrowed with the money she stole. Talk about crazy twist! Stan truly wants them get to wherever they’re headed together. Geez, I hope they can make their situation work.
Once again, the FBI is infiltrating the ladies in plain sight. As the ladies gathered at the park, Phoebe inadvertently runs into them. At first, Ruby doesn’t recognize her. As Phoebe sees them drinking, she inquires about the reason for the celebration. All three looked in bewilderment. As the season ends, there’s a lot of possibility for what might happen moving forward. Will Dean find out about Rio’s involvement with the store? Will he realize Beth is cleaning money from what’s supposed to be their “legitimate” business? Is Rio going to survive the plans Beth has for him?
I hope we’re able to see what’s in store for our Good Girls and of course…Rio!
