Spoilers for 'Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story' Season 2 Episode 7 'The Shillelagh'

The shocking, spine-chilling story of Betty Broderick is now in its final chapters. USA Network's Season 2 of 'Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story' just aired a very high stakes penultimate episode and it has everyone over the Internet squirming in their seats, in particular, the women. 

It has been long known that Betty Broderick's murder case hasn't been an entirely fair game. In fact, the divorce trial wasn't even played fairly by the two parties. Inch by inch, Dan Broderick (Christan Slater) pushed Betty (Amanda Peet) over the edge, driving her mad, making her doubt herself, broke her down and reduced her to nothing. And today, women all over the Internet are livid. "A receptionist reaping the benefits of the career you sacrificed, time, miscarriages, etc would drive anyone over the edge  #DirtyJohn" tweeted a viewer of the show.

"To be 100% honest I don't get how it took Betty that long to snap. I'd had lost it long before she finally did. I've got a weird feeling Dan was already messing around on Linda-Ho!" added another viewer. "How do you repeatedly push a woman, and after she goes over the edge, call her crazy. No sir, you created this storm. #dirtyjohn #bettybroderick," concurred another. 

Today, many understand Betty's state of mind when she used the gun. "Betty didn't deserve this. I would have done the same thing. Just sooner #DirtyJohn."

Created by Alexandra Cunnigham, the show delves deeper into the notorious divorce case but puts its focus on Betty's side of the story - one that has remained unseen through the decades. Some are now calling for Betty's release from prison, pointing out how she was wrongly put there is the first place. "Every episode of #dirtyjohn pisses me off even more. Murder was the only option. Let her out of prison already."

While many point out that the real-life Betty should have simply faked regret at her parole hearing, others aren't on board. "Well how is she supposed to feel sad for killing Dan and Linda??? Those two ruined her life and Dan gaslighted her she had no other options everyone was on Dans side including the court so I understand why she did what she did!!!"

The final episode of 'Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story', which brings Betty's painful saga to culmination, will air on Tuesday, July 14, at 9 pm on USA Network.
