Why is 'Big Sky' not airing this week? Here's what happens to Cassie when the ABC drama returns
The winter finale for 'Big Sky' was a shocking one, and fans just can't wait to know what happens next
Sorry folks, it's going to be a long time before 'Big Sky' airs. The show will return only after a lengthy winter break on January 26, ABC. The winter finale for 'Big Sky' was a shocking one, and fans just can't wait to know what happens next. Till now, we've seen the two girls Grace and Danielle being tasered and kidnapped by lonely trucker Ronald Pergman, along with Jerrie. Ronald gives off severe 'Psycho' vibes but seems to be trying to prove he isn't a bad sort, which is strange. He's also trying to pull the moves on the Sheriff's sad wife while evading his creepy mother's questions about the missing girls.
Anyway, the girls were taken to some creepy shed, far away, while the detectives Cody Hoyt (Ryan Phillippe), Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny (Katheryn Winnick), try to unravel the mystery.
However, in the first episode itself, Cody is shot dead by Rick Legarski (John-Carroll Lynch) who is in on this murky web too. The girls try to plan their escape, with little or no success. We saw Grace (Jade Pettyjohn) trying to escape from Ronald's misery dungeon out into the open. Just as we thought that everything would be okay as she met a good fisherman, who promises to help her, Legarski (John Carroll Lynch) shows up at that same spot in the middle of the woods and shoots him dead. Legarski takes Grace back, after shooting her in the leg. He dumps her back in Ronald's dungeon, where she almost dies from an infection, though the two men save her in time — yay, we guess?
However, in the finale, the girls have been moved from the dungeon, just as Cassie and Jenny burst in on that shed. They had put a tracker on Legarski's truck, but that doesn't seem to have made much difference. Legarski and Ronald are one step ahead. Cassie closes in on Legarski, but it is too late. Cassi shoots Legarski dead and that leaves a bleak future for Cassie, in the coming episodes. It remains to be seen whether she will go to jail as she shot the trooper, or if she can find her way out of it because the girls can testify for her.
'Big Sky' will return on January 26, Tuesday on ABC with a new lead, as it has been hinted. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Carroll-Lynch said, "It gets pretty ugly. It's a bad patch of road we're on. It's not going to smooth out anytime soon. Let's just put it that way. For those three women, they're very close to being erased — in one fashion or another. That's obviously what Cassie and Jimmy are trying to stop and Cody was trying to stop. It's going to get pretty dark. It's a particularly dark show for network [TV]. It's particularly dark for ABC. They were very brave to put it on."
