The Season 2 Plot:
“Season two of Good Girls is all about our women dealing with the consequences of their criminal behavior. When we last saw Beth, she had just returned home triumphant — her plan to have Rio and the gang arrested, a success, or so she thought — only to find Rio in her dining room, with a gun trained on her bloodied and beaten husband, Dean. As the season came to a close, a shaken Beth was left holding Rio’s gun as he taunted her to pull the trigger and shoot him: the only way out if she and Dean wanted to walk away alive.
What happens in the wake of the trigger being pulled will have life changing consequences that ripple through the entire season for Beth, Ruby and Annie.
Meanwhile, Stan’s discovery that Ruby and the others robbed the grocery store will test the strength of their marriage and endanger his new position as a police officer, especially when FBI Agent Jim Turner uncovers Stan’s connection to the women.”
