After almost getting away with faking a pregnancy in front of Rio and avoiding a paternity test on the same day, Beth has a lot to worry about. She is most definitely not pregnant and sooner or later Rio will find out. And even though the threats being posed against those who Beth loves are higher than the consequences she herself might face, the upcoming fourth episode of season 3 sees Beth find allies in people one wouldn't have dreamt of, and her sidekicks in the good girls trio come up with bizarre plans to save her from the Rio fiasco.

According to the official synopsis provided by NBC, in episode 4 titled 'The Eye in the Survivor', "Beth takes a gamble in order to strike a new business deal, but it has consequences that put the women in an unwelcome position; Ruby worries her lifestyle is rubbing off on her family; Annie realizes she may have an inappropriate crush on someone."

But before we get to that, the promotional teaser released by the network has us intrigued.

The teaser begins with Beth panicking; she's not pregnant and is terrified Rio might kill her for sure when he finds out. Going by Rio's menacing stare and authoritative stance at the pregnancy clinic, Beth isn't just reading too much between the lines. He is livid about the way she shot him at the end of the previous season, made worse by her just leaving him to bleed to death. And while Beth thinks faking a pregnancy is the foolproof way to make Rio go easy on her, something tells us her other romantic interest might step in to save his baby mama.

Following Beth's panic, the teaser proceeds to show her husband, Dean, at a store, telling the retail employee something along the lines of "[...] is wrecking our lives, I need to kill a man." Is it possible that Dean has somehow found out about Beth's involvement with Rio? If so, the rather docile husband of the money laundering girl boss seems to be taking it quite well - as well as a regular middle-aged man can digest the fact that he is being used by his wife as a possible sperm bank, while she tries to fake a pregnancy with a murderous crook.

With Beth panicking, and Dean expectedly finding out about Rio, Ruby and Annie feel the need to pull their ringleader out of the quicksand she has stepped into, and in her own classic way, Annie suggests Beth move to Canada and buy a baby - not in as many words; but Ruby's shocked reaction to that simplifies what Annie is suggesting. And honestly, Beth's partner in crime might have a point.

Speaking of Annie, the synopsis hints that she is beginning to spark quite the crush on her make-do therapist Josh; so that's something to look forward to, even if the Save Beth campaign doesn't work out.

'Good Girls' season 3 airs on Sundays at 10 pm only on NBC.
