Happy Easter to all my Good Girls (and guys) out there! Tonight is another new episode and we’re taking a few blast to the pasts. Last week brought us finding the missing Jane, Annie’s new boss, Sadie laying it out for her mom, and Ruby making a decision on whether or not to turn on Beth. Let’s dive in to the spoiler preview for this week’s episode “Thelma and Louise”.

This week we get to see the results of Ruby’s decision at the end of last episode. Who did she call? GHOST BUSTERS! I jest, but “Thelma and Louise” is sprinkled through with memories of the girls’ past-and let me just say, the casting on the younger versions of the girls is amazing. Ruby now has to deal with the fallout of the choice she has made and face the consequences of her decisions. Also, loving husband Stan is in a bit of hot water himself at work with Agent Turner. Sometimes, there are tests that you just can’t pass.

Meanwhile, things are getting even more complicated in Beth’s world. She finds out exactly what husband Dean has been up to and has to work overtime to fix the mess that his actions have created. Her own actions end up having some consequences she didn’t see coming and it’s heartbreaking. Luckily, she does have a couple of angels on her shoulders.

This week also brings the return of my favorite could be (should be) gal-mance, Nancy and Annie! I know, I know, Annie slept with her husband and Nancy hates her for it but I just can’t help it. Those few moments I saw of them bonding….I want more. Thankfully, with this episode, I actually got to see some. When Nancy goes in to labor at home with Sadie, Sadie calls her mom and forces her to come help because Annie is the only person Nancy has to help. The birthing scene is both hilarious and gross and yet oh so beautiful. I can’t claim that the air is all cleared but maybe it’s a good first step. Amidst all this, Sadie and Annie have a breakthrough, and Annie is also navigating her new relationship with Noah, her new boss, with an interesting take on what her life has been like for the last thirty years.

Quotes:

  • “You might as well get a pool now. You’re already half-way there.”
  • What? No. She didn’t share details.”
  • “Relax, I’ll take care of it for you.”
  • “Why are you here?”
  • “Told you I was too young to be his mom.”
  • “So am I.”
  • “She’s charging kids fifty cents to jump off our back porch.”

On a personal note: I feel like we should clear the air a bit here with my previews and some assumptions being made about what exactly it is I do. While I enjoy reading the theories and spoilers that hit fans’ Curious Cat accounts, I have never and will never submit any myself. If you’re under the assumption that I am, then sorry, you’re barking up the wrong tree. I have stated repeatedly that I will never give out spoilers that way because as much as I would love for you all to know what I know, I’m not allowed to. Doing so would be a violation of company policy and jeopardize my press access. Furthermore, the harassment some fans got last week for simply speculating about a quote I put in the last preview was completely uncalled for, as were the things said about me personally.

As such, depending on how behavior is this week, we may be discontinuing the quotes section of the preview. The quotes are meant for fans to speculate over. I will never tell you what’s right and what’s wrong because it’s part of a game. It’s meant to get you excited about the episode. If that is no longer true and turns your viewing experience in to something negative then we will get rid of them. Also, if at any time you have a question, comment, or concern about something that I post on Twitter or in my previews/reviews,  you are more than welcome to leave a comment on the article or contact me directly on Twitter. My direct messages are open. Do not attack fellow fans anonymously. You should be a stronger fanbase than that.

As always, don’t forget to use the hashtags tonight: two hours before, during, and two hours after. Can we make it to the Nielsen Top Five? I hope so!

Watch Good Girls tonight at 10/9c on NBC
