What I’m Watching: Good Girls

Good Girls: Season 3, Episode 9 “Incentive” (C)

This episode wasn’t any better than the ones that came before it, and I’m only sticking around since the shortened season will now be ending after just two more episodes, which I should be able to slug through even if they’re truly terrible. I am glad that Lauren Lapkus Agent Donnegan is taking on a more prominent role, though I’m not sure why the character has to be some comical in nature, unconcerned about personal hygiene but smart enough to cut off the nail polish color supply to force Beth and company to get creative. The solution Ruby came up with didn’t manage to fool Rio, which was hardly a surprise, and it’s baffling that he accepted yet another failure to be honest and adhere to directions without providing any consequences. The writing on this show is just not good, as evidenced by the entirety of the conversation with the cousin with fewer arms than expected, and everything about Andrew McCarthy’s assassin was hard to watch and take seriously. Focusing on Dean and his big work prize was of absolutely no interest, and I just wish that Dean would cheat on Beth without telling her instead of declaring his love for her after asking her to wear the dress she wore for Rio only to have her cancel at the last minute because something came up for her work. I don’t know what’s going to come from Sara wanting to help the family of her kidney donor, but it just seems like a distraction she doesn’t need. Lila was not smart to reveal so much about her relationship to Annie, and she put that information to excellent use to get Josh quite hot and bothered in a way he’s not soon likely to forget.
