Good Girls Season 4 Episode 5: ‘The Banker’ Review

Gathering evidence for the Secret Service was never going to be easy, right? This week’s episode sees Beth finally working for them now that the hit on Rio has been called off. Wearing a wire is definitely an obvious move but there’s never actually a chance to catch anything throughout the episode. When Rio doesn’t show up to drop near the beginning and the tracker on his car goes dead, it’s yet another confirmation of his suspicions after being tasked with taking out Fitzpatrick last episode.

Good Girls Season 4 Episode 4: ‘Dave’ Review

Unfortunately, due to some technical issues on my end, this review is incredibly late but alas, here we are.

With Dean in jail and the Secret Service aware of her crimes, Beth is working on figuring things out. Right off the bat, I want to say that I’m very intrigued by the whole witness protection thing. Even with promos and so on, I can’t fully decide whether I think it’ll actually happen or not but a big part of me is very into the idea of seeing Beth, Annie, and Ruby in protection.

Good Girls Season 4 Episode 3: ‘Fall Guy’ Review

This episode of Good Girls primarily deals with the fallout of last week’s episode. The girls have to find a fall guy in order to evade the law once again, therefore helping Dean and resuming their illegal activities but in typical fashion for this show, it’s not that straight forward.

While the Secret Service is still compiling evidence by searching Boland Bubbles, Beth tries to remain upbeat as she visits Dean. He’s cold towards her which considering the circumstances is hardly surprising but it also makes for an interesting turn around when he later pleads guilty, a move that is a little unexpected. As much as Dean can be a bit of an idiot, he’s got to know that blurting out Rio’s involvement could leave consequences for him (especially considering he got shot the last time Rio was crossed) but pleading guilty is so far in the opposite direction that it’s honestly not a move that I was expecting. It’s also got me wondering how things might progress.

Good Girls Season 4 Episode 2: ‘Big Kahuna’ Review

Throughout this episode, the net closes in on Beth and Dean as Dave, who we met properly last week, finds a way to get closer to them and push forward with his insistence of Dean’s guilt. This might only be the second episode of season four but considering this content would have made it into season three (if it hadn’t been cut short), things are already heating up pretty fast.

Good Girls Season 4 Episode 1: ‘One Night in Bangkok’ Review

It’s that time of year again where I get to talk about one of my favourite shows! Good Girls is back with the premiere of its fourth season and it went surprisingly well despite being cut short at the end of the previous season. For those who were unaware, season three was supposed to have 16 episodes instead of 11 and based on interviews we should be getting those missing episodes at the start of this current season. With that in mind, I still think they did a great job kicking things off.

Episode one — One Night in Bangkok — doesn’t quite hit the ground running in the same way as the previous season openers but all things considered, it still works. There’s still a very similar energy to season three due to the original ending being moved but it’s hardly the first time this has happened. Season two started pretty much where the first season finished off before shifting gears to create a slightly different energy/vibe. In this case, there are five episodes of content missing from the end of season three so I can imagine it’s probably going to take slightly longer for those gears to shift but it’s bound to happen.

And let’s face it, it doesn’t stop the show from being as entertaining as always. The pacing of this episode might be a little on the slower side — especially when compared to other first episodes in the show — but it still has a lot going for it and still does a fairly great job at establishing the overall direction things might be going in this season.
