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.

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 6: ‘Frere Jacques’ Review

As expected, this episode deals with the repercussions of last week and I have to say, I love the way the episode progressed and what specifically was explored. While at times it did feel like a bit of a filler, there was a lot of great moments in terms of character that showed not only how they’ve developed so far but where they may go from here. Alongside that, we get a great step into what might come next in this season of Good Girls.

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 5: ‘Au Jus’ Review

Another week over, another Good Girls episode down and this one is definitely the darkest we’ve seen so far. While not necessarily the best episode of the season, there were still so many great moments throughout. I’ll be honest, I have no idea where this season might go and I’ve been trying my best to keep my speculation to a minimum but it does seem like they’re moving into newer areas and so far, the tone is a little different (understandably so) while still maintaining that great comedy/drama balance.

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 4: ‘The Eye in Survivor’ Review

At the time of writing this, it’s been a couple of days since episode four aired but it’s still very much on my mind. While I’m reluctant to call it perfect, it was definitely the best episode we’ve seen so far this season and it’s up there as one of the best of the entire series. With several plots that were all interesting and/or entertaining to watch and paced so well, it really was good from start to finish.

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 3: ‘Egg Roll’ Review

With the way things ended last week, it was no surprise that this episode picked up right after. It was only a matter of time before Beth and Rio crossed paths again but, as I said in my review for episode twothe show managed to create a level of tension as to when he would find out about Beth’s friendship with Rhea and finally go to see her. ‘Egg Roll’ gave us those interactions and set the wheels in motion for where things may go from here.

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 2: ‘Not Just Cards’ Review

Only two episodes in and this season is already refusing to let me breathe. In this one, we get to see the first look at a post-Turner world and while it is a little freeing, it’s not necessarily easy. If this season is anything like the previous ones then these first three episodes should help to establish the trajectory of the season. So far, we’ve seen where the characters have ended up since the end of season two and now we’re moving into discovering where they’ll go.
