Beth & Rio Hooked Up On 'Good Girls' & Yeah, It's Going To Change Everything
Spoilers ahead for Good Girls Season 2, Episode 4. Well, folks, it happened: after months of prolonged sexual tension, Beth and Rio finally hooked up on Good Girls. And yeah, it's going to change everything.
Beth starts the March 24 episode by being the "boss bitch" Rio told her to be. In order to clean the fake money Rio left for her in the storage locker, she decides to use her husband's car dealership as a front. The only problem? Dean sucks at business. So Beth has to take matters into her own hands and start selling the cars herself. She's incredibly successful at it, but Dean still doesn't seem to respect or value her in any way. So is it any wonder that when Beth spots Rio at the bar she's at with Dean, she decides to have sex with him in the bathroom?
Cheating is never exactly right, but Good Girls kicked off with Dean cheating on Beth and losing all their money, so in a way, this is her payback. Still, it's not without repercussions: just as soon as Rio gave Beth the "keys to the kingdom," he takes them away, breaking into the dealership, destroying a Lamborghini, and decreasing Beth's cut of the money. When she goes to the storage locker to burn the rest of the remaining money, she discovers that Rio has taken it back. It's unclear if he's acting out of jealousy or because he felt their having sex shifted the power too much toward Beth, but either way, their dynamic has irreversibly changed.
There's also the issue of Mary Pat's son revealing to the FBI that she hid Leslie's dead body in her freezer, but honestly, that barely registers after witnessing the Beth-Rio hookup we've been waiting for since, well, the first episode. Do they have a healthy relationship? No, absolutely not. But for now, Beth might as well use Dean for his business and make the most out of this affair with Rio. Let her have her cake and eat it too.
