'Good Girls' Season 4 Episode 9: Will Beth run for city council? She needs clout to leave Rio
Spoilers ahead for 'Good Girls'
The latest episode of 'Good Girls' sees Beth Boland (Christina Hendricks) and the girls plan to move to Nevada and escape Rio's (Manny Montana) clutches come to naught as now Rio has got them back to not just printing but also washing money now at the strip club where Stan (Reno Wilson) used to work. While Ruby (Retta) and Annie (Mae Whitman) are at least happy that they are now getting a cut for printing and washing the money at the strip club, Beth wants a lot more leverage to get out from Rio's clutches for good.
So just how does she plan to do that? Well with a suggestion from Rio's brother/ cousin or at least some kind of blood relation this much we know, politician Mick (Carlos Aviles), who tells Beth that she should run for city council. Season 4 of 'Good Girls' will be the last season of the show and it will be interesting to see whether Beth ends up in a position of power or in prison.

'Good Girls' Season 4 Episode 9: What 'gift' does Rio get for Beth? Here's what he does with laundered money
The girls are suspicious of Mick's intentions for such advice, but when Beth has to take on an alliance of irate mothers at a city council meeting to keep the strip club open in the face of opposition, she seems to get even clearer that running for city council is what she is meant to do. She is tired of the only leverage she has -- her ability to seduce. The question is why has Mick planted the seed in Beth's head in the first place and was it in fact Rio's idea to convince Beth to go into politics?
Also with Agent Phoebe now having come across some more evidence with regards to Rio's dubious activities, the agents are back in Detroit and the girls especially Beth are under their scrutiny once more. What will this mean for Beth's political ambitions and will she in fact even need to run for city council if Agent Phoebe (Lauren Lapkus) and Agent Dave (Jonathan Silverman) have enough to put away Rio and Mick for good?
