Oh, man, what an episode. I’m honestly still a little in shock. Generally speaking Good Girls is one of my favourite shows of all time, partly because every episode is so good and it never seems to let me down. That being said, I’m never actually prepared for how good this show is.
Tonight’s episode sees Beth, Annie, and Ruby trying to follow through with Rio’s orders to clean up their mess. At first we see them make plans and later gather to confront Boomer. It’s kind of unsurprising that Beth would be unable to shoot him. She couldn’t do it to Rio which yes, is partly to do with the fact that there is clearly something between them even if they can’t define it, but it’s also because she’s a good person and clearly this is her line. Annie says she could have shot Boomer but honestly, unless she’s in the moment, I really don’t think there’s anyway to confirm that. However, even if she could, I get it. Boomer has been making her life a misery long before they robbed the grocery store. Regardless, Boomer doesn’t get killed this episode which I know we’re all disappointed at but at least the payoff is going to be so good when it finally happens.Continue reading “Good Girls Season 2 Episode 2: ‘Slow Down, Children at Play’ Review”
