Good Girls Season 2 Episode 12: ‘Jeff’ Review

There was some pretty strong focus on Mary Pat this week and we finally back track to episode 3 of this season where Boomer supposedly “died.” Something always felt off to me about that episode. While I was excited, like most people, that Boomer finally got what was coming to him, it did feel really sudden and never quite sat right. Well, now we know that it’s because Boomer was never really dead and has in fact been hiding out this entire time.

Good Girls Season 2 Episode 11: ‘Hunting Season’ Review

This episode was really about the girls trying to sort out some messes and it ended up being one the most hilarious and entertaining episodes of the season as well as continuing to push the narrative forward towards the finale.

Over time, Beth is being sent body parts from Rio that they assume are Boomer’s but she simply ignores them. That whole montage of her putting the parts down the sink was one the most hilarious things I’ve ever seen. I love that it got increasingly worse for her to the point that she stormed right up to him in the park to demand what he wants which really opens the episode up to the messes that the trio are going to have to figure out.

I was actually one of those people who read the spoiler article about this episode that leaked and I have to say, it didn’t ruin it at all. Although I knew most of what was coming, there was enough detail left out and I can safely say that this episode was really very good and things definitely aren’t slowing down any time soon. I doubt they will either which means the rest of season two is most likely going to be a wild ride.

Good Girls Season 2 Episode 9: ‘One Last Time’ Review

I feel like this episode and last week’s one are like the calm before the storm. While big (and arguably dramatic) things did happen, it looks and feels as if things are going to get more amped up during the rest of the season. The episode starts with a scene I knew was coming but was absolutely not prepared for. It was heartwarming to see the Hill family attempt to get ready for the day especially when Stan played the piano knowing that it would wake the kids up. They’re such a wholesome family that have been through a lot so it was nice to get a little moment like this. Only it doesn’t last too long before it’s ripped away by Turner when he shows up to arrest Stan.

Good Girls Season 2 Episode 8: ‘Thelma & Louise’ Review

It’s been several hours, I’ve even slept in that time, and I’m still not over how good this episode was. It was by far one of the best of Good Girls to date. Looking back over the episode to write this review, I genuinely can’t pick a favourite moment because it was all equally compelling. Even with Dean being annoying or Turner continuing to be frustrating, everything about this episode drew you in and overall there was this perfect balance between the comedy and the more dramatic side of the show.

Good Girls Season 2 Episode 7: ‘The Dubby’ Review

Firstly, let’s take a moment to appreciate (and scream about) the fact that Good Girls has already been renewed for season 3. While I’m not too surprised that it got renewed, I am surprised that it happened now. I was really expecting to have to wait until the end of the season but we finally have this fantastic news which means we get to enjoy the rest of season 2 knowing full well that we get more!

Anyway, with that being said, this episode primarily saw Beth trying to balance her business life and her family life and it’s safe to say that it isn’t working out. Good Girls is amazing at a lot of things but it is particularly good at intriguing montages. This time around we see one of Beth’s average routine. She gets up ridiculously early, leaves cute little post-it notes for her children, and then goes off to deal with the day. When she leaves in the morning it’s dark and when she returns it’s to a quiet house, it’s dark once again. She does this day in and day out. It’s even gotten to the point where she has a planner for her “business” side of things.
