Recap of episode 7 of season 2 of “Big Sky”: “Little Boxes”
Those Big sky breaks of several weeks make a number in my memory. Who can even remember which drug dealers are dead and which are in fact undercover cops and which are just caught up in business well above their pay?
The last time we pulled up, Travis was kidnapped by his boss Dietrich while Jenny was watching him perform behind a motel bed. Travis, who had previously been kidnapped by Ren, agreed to work for her in order to go, like, triple infiltration, and while he was busy getting kidnapped by Dietrich again, Ren and Donno were busy killing Smiley. , one of Dietrich’s men, who has just agreed to work with T-Lock to distribute your old bags of drugs that are at the center of this season’s drama. Oh, Lindor made the wrong decision to sneak into Wolf Legarski’s estate to look for Ronald Pergman.
And that’s where we start this week’s episode, with Lindor sneaking into Wolf’s kennels looking for signs of Ronald and Scarlet. He doesn’t find them, but is himself found by Wolf, who temporarily locks Lindor in Ronald’s old kennel to teach him a lesson. His captivity is brief, and when he is released, Ronald sees him through a window and tries to get his attention, until Wolf’s wife, Agatha, zaps her necklace and immobilizes him, all while knocking out a Scarlet. provocative with a piece of wood.
At Cassie’s, Jenny shows up to reveal that she saw Travis being kidnapped by Dietrich, and the two go to look for him at the local bar, The Boot Heel. When they arrive, a bloody box addressed to “The Liar” sits on the pool table (soha do you hate it when you have to replace the bloodied felt on your pool table?), And inside the box is Smiley’s hand, cut off the wrist and holding a bag of drugs. It’s a message, all of you.
In Smiley’s apartment, a bit of levity as Donno and his new colleague Tonya the former waitress pick up Smiley’s severed limbs. Donno criticizes Tonya for buying what appears to him to be thin, plant-based trash bags that collapse because they contain as much as a human head. Donno, I’m right here with you, it’s Hefty Cinch Sack or nothing for that girl. In a subsequent dismembered body comedy moment, T-Lock arrives at Smiley’s apartment moments after his body has been cleansed, and takes a fantastic fall after slipping in a puddle of the blood of his former business partner. T-Lock is hiding in the bathroom because he hears Travis and Dietrich walking into the house, but of course the tension bar shower cart falls off because those things never stay put and the sound betrays him. . He runs out of the apartment, but Travis and Dietrich are after him.
Harper, still feeling empathy for the weird watcher in the woods who saved them from Deputy Harvey, brings the watcher to Madison and Bridger’s house because he’s dying from a stabbing. infected for a few days now. He tells them not to take him to the hospital, so they do what any teenager in Montana does: find their friend whose father is an doomsday preparer and ask him for some of their secret medical supplies. This friend, Hot Pete, is happy to help. His basement, stacked up to look like a CVS, makes me realize that the Venn diagram of Doomsday Prep’s Basements and Extreme Couponer’s Basements isn’t a diagram at all, it’s is just a big circle.
Madison plans to bring all the medical supplies home where the Observer, named Creary, is safely hiding because Bridger and Madison’s parents are away for a conference. (Cut to Bridger and Madison’s parents coming home early because their flight was canceled, and pointing out the intricacies of trying to perform minor surgery on a stabbed half-dead man while keeping him away! )
Tonya shows initiative as Ren’s new employee by offering Ren to buy a local ranch nearby. Ren is delighted with his young new employee’s attitude and sends her to inspect the property. The point is, Cassie’s dad is also interested in buying a ranch, so when Tonya arrives Cassie is there and wondering what Tonya is doing. Tonya tells her that she’s working for a new boss, whose identity she cannot reveal, and Cassie’s private investigator’s office is immediately turned on.
Jenny calls Dietrich to let him know that Smiley is dead. Dietrich, who has apprehended T-Lock, leaves him under Travis’s surveillance while he goes to Jenny’s house. When he learns of Smiley’s death, he is shaken and reveals that he thinks Ren is behind it all. (He’s not wrong.) So Jenny goes to investigate Ren, who is surprised that anyone thinks she’s involved in a drug cartel, she’s just a friendly real estate developer in town. to build a shiny new housing estate. As Jenny leaves Ren’s, Tonya walks in and Jenny realizes that something – no, all – it’s not okay.
As for the love life of women, because that’s what you look for Big sky, to the right? Travis, who brought T-Lock to a secret underground bunker, forces him to, but still multitasking, Travis calls Jenny while pointing the gun at T-Lock to tell her that no matter what happens to him from this point forward, he loves it. Awww! And then Lindor and Cassie share a moment where he shows up at her desk and, as he fumbles to describe his feelings, she kisses him. Poor Jerry! It’s all happening while she’s away, and she’s probably outside thinking about that kiss. she had with Lindor, and savoring the beautiful moment they shared as she left into the night to take care of her dying mother whom she hates. This love triangle, such a minor plot point that most people would ignore, is going to stress me out more than almost anything all season long, I can tell you that. #JusticeForJerrie.
