Welcome back, guys and gals of the good and bad variety. My deepest apologies for missing last week’s preview, I was ill. While not 100% better I’m feeling well enough to pound this out and bring you guys some little snippets on what to look forward to on this weeks episode of Good Girls.

Beth has bought herself some time in keeping Rio at bay while she fakes being pregnant with Gang Friend Jr. To ensure that his “baby mama” doesn’t do anything rash, he has her put on constant surveillance. Expect that to take a toll on Beth rather quickly and for her to figure out a way out of the mess that she’s created. There’s only one thing Rio desires more than righting the wrong of Beth’s transgressions against him and she and the girls bust their asses to make it happen.  

While all of this is happening with his wife, Dean decides to do a little shopping. I will warn the Brio fans that there is a moment this episode that will have you covering your eyes, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. But also, to stand on a preachy soap box for two seconds, please remember when you’re reacting passionately online that there are very real people behind these characters. Let’s keep the harassment of them at a minimum (and yes, this includes the official Good Girl’s twitter account as well). Engagement is great! Reacting is great! If you’re wishing harm on them, take a breath and a step back because you’ve gone too far. This concludes the soap box message.

Ruby and Stan are at odds over the correct way to parent and discipline Sara. Sara herself has been accused of having picked up the family business, theft. Like mother like daughter. Did she do it? Did she not do it? Where’s the proof, if it even exists? Well, you can count on Ruby to get to the bottom of it, one way or the other. Also, there is one scene this episode that proves beyond all reasonable doubt that Ruby is the REAL MVP.

And Annie? Oh, Annie. She’s continuing on her path of Annieness and finds herself wanting to bond with her therapist on a more intimate level. She also hears some hard truths about herself that while not easy to hear definitely strikes a cord with both her and the audience. There is a good question to be raised about how beneficial can therapy be if you can’t be truly honest?

Quotables:  (To make up for a lack of preview last week have seven instead of the usual five)

  • “Oh my God, it’s 100% me.”
  • “If I never hear that word again.”
  • “What are you doing, Elizabeth?”
  • “At what point are we taking this too far?”
  • “What if I’m dealing with a really aggressive moose?”
  • “There is still a line here and we shouldn’t cross it.”
  • “I’ve got time.”

Make sure to catch Good Girls Sunday at 10/9c on NBC
