Rio’s cousin/ brother is going to be a problem.
Dealing with Rio is one thing, but producing Nick into the fold will change things wholly. He has a different kind of influence and a different firebrand that Beth hasn’t are dealing with before.
But she gets a taste during Good Girls Season 4 Episode 8, and she better realize that the game is changing yet again.
Just when she recalled she was out, they attract her back in.
That’s literally this hour in a nutshell.
Beth actually inspects joyful and a little at peace at one point, realizing that her life may be slowly pieced back together with Rio behind barrooms and the Secret services off her back. But that was wishful thinking indeed.
There’s been a lot of talk about options this season and how your choice and free will can often be taken away from you. Beth often mentions about not having a choice when it comes to Rio because she’s put into a position where she has to pick between herself and him.
And a hundred times out of a hundred times, she’s going to choose herself.
But where does that leave Rio? It leaves him handcuffed and behind bars, and if not for his cousin/ brother, he’d probably still be there.
I’ve been wailing from the rooftops for a very long time about diving into Rio’s background more. He’s an essential piece of this whole puzzle, but he’s the biggest mystery out there. We know he’s a leader, but that’s all we know about his personal life.
The flashback during this installment, while fleeting, did a lot to colors in some things and gave us a much better perspective of the dynamic between Rio and Nick, which is fraught at best. It really smells it made us until Good Girls Season 4 to learn more about the series’ biggest antagonist.
Rio and Nick both have a particular designated of knowledge, with Rio being a bit more hardened and prone to violence, while Nick is the smooth talker and the one using his messages more frequently than not. They’re both magnificent, and they’re a one-two punch that no one should want to mess with.
But it seems pretty obvious there’s a disconnect there. The whole cousin/ brother thing a dead giveaway that these two don’t always attend eye to eye. And all signs point toward Beth being the thing that could really break these two apart.
Nick’s rapid those who are interested in Beth comes across as a bit surprising, but it probably shouldn’t. Though it’s unclear what the goal here is. He’s warning her away from Rio, but why?
Does he genuinely be concerned about her well-being? He could, but he just knows her, so that doesn’t seem like a very plausible scenario. It’s more likely that he doesn’t trust her, and he has good reason not to trust her.
You’ve got your head in the wrong game.

However, he doesn’t seem to trust Rio either.
It feels like things are about to come highly sloppy regarding this triangle. You can refer to it as both a professional triangle and a nostalgic triangle if the loiter appears between Beth and Nick were a predictor of things to come.
It’s three people with three different plans trying to co-exist, and there’s only no way that doesn’t end up badly for someone.
A major question that will come out of this escapade is the talk between Rio and Nick after Rio was liberated. It voiced like Rio was willing to kill Beth, and Nick was the one wanting to use her to their advantage, much like he’d done when they were younger, and he exercised Rio to get a leg up.
Nick: You owe me. Rio: Add it to the list. So what do we do about her? Nick: Well not what you want to do. Rio: Don’t appreciate any other way. Nick: That’s why you got me, brother. Rio: Cousin.

The conversation is ambiguous, and Rio doesn’t explicitly say he craves her dead, but if genuine, that can’t be a shock at this top. Though, you could also argue that if Rio certainly demanded Beth dead, he would have done it a long time ago.
He’s given her likelihood after opportunity, and it are beyond him “needing” her for the business. He existed for a long time doing his thing before he gratified Beth Boland, and he could figure out how to get it on without her.
We know, and essentially everyone knows, that the ligament is deeper between Rio and Beth than either wants to recognize. But if he’s now being put into a position where he has to stirs preferences between Beth and his family, that’s going to be incredibly humorou to watch.
Elsewhere, Gene was finally dealt with, and that’s been a long time coming. Beth’s description of turd was the best way to describe the man, and the plan to set him up was flawed, but it dissolved up working in the end.
They didn’t touch upon Stan’s acrimony toward Beth, but perhaps that comes back later once Stan finds out that it was Beth’s idea to set up Gene in the first place. It’s not as if she will be expecting a gift basket or something, but it’s not above Beth to expect a bit gratitude.
But Stan has every reason to be wary and tired of Beth. They all do. And even when she does something “good, ” there’s always something in it for her as well.
Setting up Gene was less about Stan and more about get the secret service off her back. She was killing two fledglings with one stone more than she was doing it to help Stan.
Well , now that the Rio case is officially dead, what does this mean for Phoebe and Dave? If the DA isn’t going to prosecute, they don’t have another play here, right? They should be sending off to Washington and leaving the maids behind.
Or not. The ladies didn’t actually follow through with their outcome of the consider, but it wasn’t absolutely their demerit.
That’s what should happen, but it’s hard to see Phoebe giving up.
She’s been hell-bent on bringing Beth down, though it’s morphed into some odd mini-fascination over experience, it still feels like she would turn Beth in if she had to.
And Beth is still going to be working. Rio’s message to her was pretty loud and clear.
The business isn’t going nowhere, but they’d be nonsensical to think that all the pressure is off now.
Odds and Ends
Dean link a Ponzi scheme is the most Dean thing in the world. This will somehow end up biting them in the butt, but it’s hard to care because it’s so boring.
Hey, Breckin Meyer! Welcome to Good Girls!
The entire airstrip team string was excellent. It’s probably a top ten funniest moment for this show, and that’s saying something.
They nailed the younger Rio and Nick throws. Rio, especially as he grew up, had the same speech and behaviour as adult Rio. Bravo, throwing!
This may be a turning point for the season , now that we’ve got Nick only in the bend. He’s not going anywhere, and verifying how Nick, Rio, and Beth work together is going to be nerve-racking but oh so fun!
Are you looking forward to seeing more Nick?
Will Stan’s exasperation toward Beth come back up again?
Will Annie get a worthwhile storyline this season?
