Big Sky 1.2: The "Goods" and the Ruined Plan



Big Sky 1.2 continued as one edgy kind of show, especially for network television.   Interesting that David Kelley took this to a network -- ABC -- rather than a cable or streaming service, where "the goods," as the show artfully put it, could have been seen in the scene.

Those "goods" Ruined the human smuggling plan.  Which called for the delivery of female prostitutes.  And Jerri may be a prostitute, but she's not a woman.  Unlike the Kink's Lola, who "walked like a woman but talked like a man,"  Jerri walks and talks like a woman, but she has male "equipment," to use another term from this show, in which pseudo-gentility and euphemism camouflage one of the more evil nests we've seen on the screen.

It's worth noting that Danielle realizes Jerri's identity without seeing anything, in contrast to Ronald who sees the full monte when Jerri asks him to look when Jerri is taking a shower.  That was smart move on Jerri's part, because it ruined the plan to sell "her" into the market.  But it's also very dangerous.  Because, what now?

Rick, who is one of the coldest, therefore chilling, psychos to come along in a while, is already talking to Ronald about things getting "ugly".  That means killing Jerri, Danielle, and Grace, and since he'd already indicated that Danielle and Grace were too young and innocent to be put up for sale, Rick had already decided to that to those two.   Adding one more victim to the list wouldn't be too hard.

So, like any good show of this sort, Big Sky is continuing to raise the ante, even as Cassie has become suspicious of Rick, an important first step in stopping this bad guy.  But Jenny is still stubbornly not getting this, and until she and Cassie combine their forces, the evil beneath the genial in Rick will continue to hold most of the lethal cards.
