What I’m Watching: Good Girls

Good Girls: Season 2, Episode 9 “One Last Time” (B-)

The notion that Beth is going to get out is hard to truly believe, especially since this show was recently renewed for another season. Stan being arrested is a huge development, one that makes this seem like an open-and-shut case for Turner, who is talking in a way that doesn’t conform much with his character, suggesting that he would utilize corrupt methods to get Stan to cooperate. Ruby choosing to rob the place that she had visited and left an impression was a questionable choice, and their captive turned out to be an irritating handful. His decision not to report her to the police and to instead use her address so that his nephew could go to a good school seemed like a fair trade which once again worked out much better for these three than it should have. Greg telling Annie that Noah was bad news was a bad move destined to make her more inclined to get serious with him, and though she tried to slow it down, he played her perfectly by confessing his alleged illegal actions that made her far more interested in sharing a whole lot more than she should. Dean telling his mother that it was his fault that things in his marriage got bad because he cheated was a sign of his growth, and, though it was inaccurate, seemed like enough to get him and the kids back home. Annie getting brought in by Noah and Turner should be the next step, but I feel like this is going to be dragged out a lot more with other problems coming up first.
