'Good Girls' Season 3 Episode 3 Preview: Rio issues sweet threats to Beth raising concerns for those she loves
We know Rio is back and now even Beth knows he is back for good. What's worse? His promises of going "easy" on her might entail a bunch of devastatingly brutal tragedies to come Beth's way because if the promo teaser for the upcoming Episode 3 of Season 3 is to be believed, Rio has a grudge and a giant one at that.
According to the official synopsis for Episode 3, titled 'Egg Rolls', "A desperate Beth does everything she can to stay alive while dealing with the unexpected challenges of being a boss and finds help in the least likely of places. Dean suffers the ramifications of doing things differently at work."
"Meanwhile, Ruby and Stan figure out how to make her new business venture work for them," the synopsis added. However, in a newly released promo by NBC, we also finally get to see the aftermath of Rio ambushing Beth at the bar when he shows up instead of Rhea.
After the obvious shock Beth must have suffered, and as she's trying to register that all of this is really happening, the aftermath of Rio showing up results in a bunch of passive-aggressive threats from his end to her, which are conveyed in the most sickeningly sweet manner.
Being the overly dramatic person Rio is, he seems to have preserved the bullets from Beth shooting him at the end of Season 2. He pulls them out one by one and as he places each one down, he names the organ, or body part the individual bullet had hit.
Lung, spleen, and shoulder were the body parts of Rio that Beth's bullets had punctured, and as the horrified look on her face extends to pure panic, Rio — in the sweetest, most fake-comforting tone ever — tells her "You're my girl."
The threatening words of reassurance are followed by more of its kind, as Rio tells Beth he'll "take it easy" on her, and do "it" himself.
At this point, it's hard to tell what the said "it" means, but there's a very high chance "it" kills Beth - or so hints the follow-up conversation the teaser offers between Beth and her girlfriends Ruby and Annie.
The teaser itself kicks off with Beth's voice raising the alarm that Rio is back and alive, and later, when her friends ask her what she's going to do, all Beth can say is "I'm dead. He will kill me."
Well, Beth, you're forgetting the other thing Rio loves the most apart from revenge, and that is money. So maybe all of this going easy on her and doing it himself could refer to Rio getting hold of the business back to his reign and making things really torturous for Beth.
Or worst case scenario: he hurts someone really close to her because what could be more satisfying that watching her in guilt-driven pain.
'Good Girls' Season 3 airs on Sundays at 10 pm on NBC.
