It is finally time for Annie to freak out with a bird in her hand, as revealed by the promo teaser for the upcoming episode 5 of 'Good Girls' season 3. 

Titled 'Au Jus', the episode will see our titular good girls take drastic measures to strongarm Beth's employee Lucy into becoming their unwilling partner in crime, with gruesome results.

While all of this comes with the ulterior motive to somehow quit working under Rio, and heaven knows the entire fandom is on Beth and her sidekicks' side on this. But still, the whole prospect of an absolute docile sweetheart like Lucy getting wrapped into this mess makes us very, very worried about the character. The synopsis teases some gruesome outcomes, and knowing Rio, we are sure he won't be shy to pop a bullet or two just for the heck of it.

Last week we saw Beth involve Lucy into their game by asking her to draft the plates they use for the money laundering business, so this time, it's highly possible that Rio seeks out the origin of those plates instead of using Beth as a medium - which would serve the purpose of both providing him with easy money, as well as a solid reason to cut Beth off, thereby realising the revenge he had set out to seek.

Based on the promo-teaser, Ruby can be seen complaining about what their little business entails now, with "bodies, robberies, and birds", which makes sense now that her daughter might, or might not, know about the not so squeaky clean profession her mother is dabbling in.

With Ruby suddenly growing a conscience about the whole business the moment her anger issues and her work start impacting her family life, one has to turn to Annie for the dysfunctional source of entertainment and she sure as hell doesn't disappoint. The trailer shows us the 'birds' Ruby was talking about in the form of Annie running around with a yellow canary for some reason, and in other news, to make everything more freakishly weird, the dreaded Rio makes plenty of appearances throughout the episode.
