Good Women Season 4 Episode 2 Assessment: Massive Kahuna


Properly, that definitely took a flip.


The women acquired tricked once more, this time by an FBI agent masquerading as a sizzling tub connoisseur. Nevertheless it wasn’t one in every of them who took the autumn on Good Women Season 4 Episode 2


Whereas Beth was able to step ahead and take the warmth, the authorities got here for Dean as an alternative. A twist Beth most definitely did not see coming.


Since Good Women started, the lads have all the time been on the skin. They usually had been actually solely introduced in when the women had been pressured to inform them SOMETHING when the police began poking round.


Dean has been notably clueless about every thing, primarily as a result of Beth has all the time instructed him what she felt like he wanted to know. Retaining him away was rooted primarily in not implicating him, nevertheless it’s Beth. There’s all the time going to be part of her who seems like essentially the most competent particular person within the room.


Quickly although, the FBI will notice that Dean would not know something in regards to the enterprise. Or so it could appear.


Is there a universe through which Dean takes the wrap for Beth? It isn’t like he can promote her out as a result of he would not have sufficient data. However he may simply admit guilt and take the autumn for no matter they attempt to pin on him.


That is in all probability not going to occur, nevertheless it’s a risk.


Dean’s redemption tour has been an up and down affair since Good Women Season 1, however maybe looking back, it could have been useful to get Dean’s assist. Beth has managed to make issues work, however barely.


And Dean’s arrest is only one minor concern for Beth proper now, with the Rio risk nonetheless looming round as effectively.


There hasn’t been almost sufficient Rio via the primary two hours of the season, and as common, we nonetheless have such little perception into what he is considering or what his long-term plans could also be.


The early episode fake-out wasn’t a shock, nevertheless it sounds just like the police aren’t going to simply take his alibi and drop it. And the connection between the bullets and different killings implies that the warmth goes to remain squarely on Rio’s shoulders for a protracted whereas.


Even when the cops have the gun with Beth’s fingerprints, will they consider she’s some queenpin concerned in a bunch of drug-related killings?


Killing Rio ought to in all probability take a backseat in the meanwhile as a result of it would not accomplish an entire hell of so much.


Beth appears to be struggling a bit along with her morality when it is handy to take action. She’s made quite a lot of ghastly selections, however at this level, she will’t change the previous. There is no such thing as a getting back from lots of the issues she’s carried out, and the primary purpose must be self-preservation and defending her household.


And the identical goes for all the women. The road is wherever it is advisable to place it to maintain the folks that you just love protected. That was why they acquired into the mess they’re in, and it is how they need to play issues shifting ahead.


Up to now into the season, Ruby and Annie have each had their major plots revolve round household points, whereas Beth has taken on the majority of the “enterprise” storylines. Undecided why that is a alternative they’re making this season as a result of the very best elements of the sequence are often when the three are working in tandem.


That is to not say it hasn’t been good to verify in with Stan and the children as a result of Stan and Ruby are ceaselessly the MVP couple of the sequence.


Good Women likes to carry folks again randomly, as we acquired each Carly and Jenny, JT, and Chris/Kevin again for some motive.


JT is beautiful and is all the time welcome, however Carl and Jenny? Not a lot.


It was humorous that Ruby and Stan had been so satisfied they had been there to bleed them dry when it ended up being the alternative, however how had been they purported to know that? Issues have been rocky between the 2 {couples}, however they appeared to have fashioned a pure bond with Sara.


They do not appear to have anybody on the earth anymore. And their connection to Sara, and by proxy the remainder of the Hill’s is nice. Not telling them that Sara’s kidney wasn’t from their daughter was the fitting factor to do at that second. And lengthening a tentative hand to them was the fitting transfer.

You make enjoyable of everybody, however nobody’s life’s a much bigger joke than yours.

Ben [to Annie]


Annie and Ben are big-time struggling proper now, and a part of it’s simply teenage angst. Whereas one other a part of it’s Annie’s obliviousness to the best way she comes throughout.


There is a motive Ben retains her at arms-length relating to issues involving his college or his associates as a result of Annie’s first response to every thing is sarcasm. She jokes about actually every thing, and generally they land, and generally they do not.


So, to keep away from Annie’s jokes which are borderline judgmental, Ben has chosen to simply retains issues to herself. He is altering, and he is rising, however Annie has failed to acknowledge that change, partly as a result of she’s all the time wrapped up in her personal drama.


And whereas the wealth disparity between Annie and Gregg has all the time been there, it generally would not manifest as a lot for kids till you attain a sure age.


Annie tries, she does. She’s mother, within the sense that Ben would by no means doubt her love for him. She would do something for him, and he or she does what she will to present him life, however she has quite a lot of faults.


And whereas going to remedy was a step in the fitting path, we additionally know her inappropriate relationship with Dr. Cohen has overshadowed the precise remedy work.


Each season, it seems like Annie is that a lot nearer to getting issues collectively, however she’s simply unable to get there. She and Ben must have an sincere dialogue as a result of Annie would not appear to acknowledge simply how off-putting she may be at instances.


They’re lengthy overdue for a pleasant, sincere dialog in regards to the evolution of their mom and little one relationship.


Odds and Ends


  • What number of instances are these folks going to get duped by the authorities? It is virtually laughable at this level. For as vivid as Beth is, generally she actually drops the ball. Some loopy huge sizzling tub model needs to group up with them and see their books instantly? There have been pink flags throughout.

  • After I mentioned I wished extra Mick, I wasn’t conscious we’d see that a lot of him! However loving how the women see him as a pseudo ally at this level and attempt to work with him after they can.

  • Has Gregg gotten extra likable currently? Or is that simply me?

  • It isn’t like we weren’t conscious the hitman had some critical points, however he appears to be all in on Beth. And he doesn’t appear all for doing what she says in any respect. Seeing how that dynamic performs out goes to be very fascinating shifting ahead.


One other week down, and a few big developments! I am curious to know the way you guys see issues with Dean enjoying out.


May he take the autumn for Beth?


Is killing Rio nonetheless the fitting transfer general?


Will the women lastly cease trusting random individuals who present up and befriend them?


Drop a remark down under and watch Good Women on-line now so you may be a part of the dialog!
