What I’m Watching: Big Sky

Big Sky: Season 3, Episode 7 “Come Get Me” (B)

I’ve been saying for a while now that Jenny and Beau are off investigating cases that feel completely unrelated to what’s going on at that campground, and now it’s finally all coming together following that unusually creepy opening with Denise getting rightfully scared about an intruder in the office who had left a very threatening message behind. I was excited to recognize Brad William Henke as the actor who played Joe Lucan, but I can’t find any confirmation that it was in fact the “Orange is the New Black” and “Manhunt: Deadly Games” actor playing the role (and nothing to contradict it either). I did think that it would make sense for him to have a meatier part, but the fact that he was able to identify Walter so that Cassie could make the connection was more important for the show’s overarching narrative. Luke thought that staying at the camp with Donno and Tonya coming back for him was a bad idea - and it was, considering the new kill order out on him - but then he went and ran into Paige in the woods, who was accompanied by none other than a bloodthirsty Walter. Things didn’t work out for Sunny and Buck with Mary’s body as they had hoped they would, but at least Emily found Mary in a moment that didn’t put her own life at risk. I remain intrigued about what Avery’s role in all of this and whether Carla or Beau is going to be angrier about it when they finally piece it all together.
