We all knew Stan had been feeling some sort of feeling about Beth lately, but Sunday’s episode of Good girls, he finally faced these frustrations head-on.
But that big slice of marinated beef wasn’t the only drama served hot this week. Here’s what happened in the episode titled “Chef Boyardee”.
The episode opens with a policeman named Potter convincing his daughter that no one will ever break into their house and harm her. The same cop walks into a restaurant and asks a city councilor – Nick! – if he has a minute to chat. But more on that later.
Dave and Phoebe meet with Beth to tell her that DC has unplugged their case. The agents (correctly) speculate that Rio has someone inside. That deal Beth and Dean had? It caught fire, causing Beth to reconsider fleeing to Nevada or Thailand… anywhere that isn’t Michigan.
When Beth asks Ruby if she still has any fake bags to sell, Ruby tells Stan that they should bring her back. She tells him the truth about Gene’s arrest, and even Stan can’t deny Beth’s suave problem-solving abilities.
Rio asks Beth to do a “little errand” for him. He wants his “funny money” back, so she calls Phoebe to set up a play date. Ruby rightly points out that breaking into a hotel room to steal federal evidence is a “kamikaze mission,” which takes Beth straight back to Plan B, “That’s exactly why we have to get out of this town.”
The women meet with Stan to review their bag operation. Beth almost immediately tries to take control of the conversation. She just can’t be a follower, but looking at her and Stan trying to lightly walk around each other is a hoot. Beth finds a loophole in Stan’s plan, however. She fears that moms talk too much. And it only takes one person to sniff out a knockoff and spread the word to their entire chain of moms text, which would be disastrous. “Do you have a better idea?” Stan asks. Of course she does.
Using dancers from the club, they attempt to force a private party of men to buy their lookalikes before the women get undressed. Two men are about to open their wallets, until another flashes his badge. He’s a cop, and their scam is donezo. But at least they didn’t wrap around the wrists.
Phoebe goes to get her files and the man in the office is Potter. Phoebe leaves and Potter asks his colleague to look for something for him as proof. “She was someone’s daughter,” he says. Returning to dinner, Potter claims he is looking for MMA tickets for his daughter, but he really snoops around to find a connection between Lucy’s death and the UFC tickets found at the scene. How did a murderer end up with the special city tickets? Someone must have scalped them, Nick said. Seeking to end the conversation, Nick says he’ll see what he can do for Potter’s daughter.
Annie tries to get financial help so Ben can stay at her school, but due to her drug costs, she is not allowed to apply. But if someone else shares their address, they can apply for the loan. Annie asks Kevin to fill out the paperwork, which he only accepts if she never comes back to see him again.
Beth sells bags to the private group blackmailing them with a nonexistent video she claims she took that night. When Stan finds out Beth made the sale, he is immediately sour. She asks what her problem is and he is frank: “You”. He said his ego couldn’t take the blow. “You’ve been ignored for so long in your own home, and now all you want to do is count. You use everything you can to get what you want, ”he said boilingly, adding that it was Beth who got shot, among other things. Ruby walks into the room and they quickly break her down.
With a chance to land a job in a parking lot, Dean tries to break out of his pyramid scheme, only his business partner says Dean has to write him a check for the product. And not just the samples, but a whole garage of the product. (Dean, how did you not see that coming, man !?)
Beth brings juice and liquor to Phoebe’s hotel room. They get drunk, and when Phoebe walks into the bathroom, Beth finds the box of counterfeit bills and throws it out the window. Annie and Ruby are waiting outside to pick it up, and while Annie babbles about old memes and “weather folks,” Ruby admits, “My husband hates my best friend.”
Nick confronts Rio at the boxing gym about the tickets, speculating and confirming that Rio wasn’t actually in this fight. He was busy killing Lucy. “Sometimes I work weekends, my brother,” is Rio’s only response. Nick drops a wad of cash in the ring and when Rio asks what the use is he is grabbed and held from behind. “A doctor,” Nick said before hitting his face with a stool.
Kevin hands over Annie’s papers and says her car was destroyed by a broken power line. The good news: Ben can stay at his school! The bad news? They now have a roommate.
Potter comes home from work shouting, “What smells so good?” But when he turns the corner of the kitchen Mick stands there. “Chief Boyardee,” said the hitman. A spray of goodness from the tomato spreads over an envelope on the kitchen table – an envelope made for Special Agent Phoebe Donegan. This piece of evidence Probably won’t land in the mail anytime soon.
In the final moments of the episode, Beth opens a present left at her doorstep. This is a printing plate for a Canadian $ 20 bill. Their operation is apparently headed north.
