Well, that was an explosive winter finale for 'Big Sky'. Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) finally tracks down Rick Legarski (John Carroll-Lynch) and the missing girls. After a battle of words, she shoots him straight. We don't know what's going to come of this, till January 26... Boy, that's a long wait.

Fans are rather shocked at this strange turn of events, considering that Legarski had the upper hand till now. Honestly, he seemed close to bludgeoning his wife at the beginning of the episode. "I just can’t believe Rick is dead and Ronald is alive. Merrilee is a widow....she’s about to show us how “Stella got her grove back”.. #BigSky," a fan wrote.



 

Considering Ryan Phillippe's Cody Hoyt was killed off in the premiere of this show, 'Big Sky' has proved that anyone, at any point can die. "They not spearing nobody chileeee they just killin off everybody in this show, #BigSky," one fan tweeted.

Cassie shot the man in self-defense, so will she really get into trouble for it? But considering that no one is on her and Jenny's side, it will be difficult to stop her from being arrested. "Cassie feared for her life so she killed him. So if the rules are equal, then she should be okay..... #BigSky," a fan tweeted. Many fans didn't like this cliffhanger and wonder how the show would be dragged for several more episodes. "That was an awful finale hanger. A Season 2 isn't even needed...the girls should've just been saved. The end. How are you gonna drag that out for a whole second season. #bigsky," one tweeted. 



 



 



 

In an interview with TV Insider, Carroll-Lynch confirmed that Rick was indeed dead. "Rick is dead. ... We'll find out whether or not Rick is dead. Certainly, in the circumstances, one would think so," he said. 

Did Rick goad Cassie into killing him? "The writers and I have differences in opinion in regards to what he was doing. Whether or not Cassie is capable of firing that gun is something they've had discussions about before. She's assured him she was, but he has been led to believe by the people he's checked in about her with that she bailed at the academy for a reason. We may find out," added Lynch.

'Big Sky' returns to ABC on January 26, Tuesday at 10 pm.
