Good Girls Season 3 Episode 11: ‘Synergy’ Review

Despite the shortened season, episode 11 worked surprisingly well to bring things to a satisfying enough end all things considered. Naturally, it doesn’t feel entirely like a planned finale might but as a make-shift one, it was a good place to stop things. There is enough insight into what’s to come and while, as of writing this, renewal hasn’t been announced, there is plenty to give us an idea of where the story might go next.

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 10: ‘Opportunity’ Review

For an episode that wasn’t supposed to be the penultimate of the season, Opportunity works surprisingly well as one. We’re given just enough information on what might happen in next week’s episode even without watching the promo video for it but we’re not given too much, meaning that really anything could happen. Considering next week’s episode wasn’t supposed to be the finale, it’ll be interesting to see what cliffhangers it ends on (if any).

It’s been a couple of weeks since the last episode of Good Girls and oh boy, does it feel good to be back. This week seemed to strip back a little and primarily serve as a way to change things up slightly but it was still a fairly fun watch. While there wasn’t any particular grand moment, there were a lot of smaller ones that were all necessary to either push the story along or address ongoing plots.

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 8: ‘Nana’ Review

After coming home to find everything in her house had been taken, this week, Beth arms herself with a list she wrote at four in the morning to help her tackle what to do next. The first is to gain back Rio’s trust and that is exactly how we find ourselves watching the girls deliver a package and the reintroduction of a character that nobody likes.

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 7: ‘Vegas, Baby’ Review

So, this episode kick starts with Beth revealing to Annie and Ruby that she skimmed off the top of the money they’re printing for Rio (something we saw last week) and I have to say, I loved that the whole episode started with them peering into the bag but all we could see was their faces and not what they were looking at. Beyond that, and the fact Beth thinks she can keep taking the money without Rio realising, another big thing to propel this episode forward, is Max finding out the truth about Lucy and wanting to get revenge. While it’s really no surprise that Beth’s plan didn’t last (or pan out) and Max didn’t follow through on what he wanted, there were still some gems along the way.
