Big Sky Season 1 Episode 15 Preview

Big Sky Season 1 Episode 15, titled “Bitter Roots” will continue after Phoebe sees Ronald. She asks him what he was doing, to which he responds to come and see herself. Ronald was burying the body of Phoebe’s Aunt Mary. And even though Ronald really likes Scarlet and her daughter, if she really understood what she saw, Phoebe could be a loose end. Considering Ronald had already killed Mary, killing Phoebe doesn’t seem far off. But this will make things far too messier. The upcoming episode is about to be the penultimate episode of the season. And this episode will have a lot riding on it, considering how much of the story would have to be showcased before the season finale. The Ranch has become a dangerous place to be, where Cassie and Jenny must raise the question if they are against the wall this time around.

The episode Bigger Roots’ promo suggests that Scarlet gets an alarming call where she finds out that her sister has been missing. She had just received a call from someone causing Ronald the realization of how much he had messed up with killing Mary. He must come up with a quick plan to save himself from this situation and decide his next move. At the moment, Phoebe seems to be the key to the reveal of Ronald’s secret. She must have been hiding, considering that she didn’t get what was happening. Even so, she did understand it, it would be a child’s allegations against an adult.

But this family will have to fight through.

Arthur persona

Ronald is not unlike any predator, he explains to Phoebe. He tells her how there are animals in the forest whose nature was to kill to stay alive. This could be the foreshadowing by Ronald as to how he will resort to killing someone in order to survive. He won’t be backed into a corner, even if it is a little girl that happens to be a threat to him. Now that her sister is reported missing, Scarlet must fear for herself and her daughter. The man she lives with is the very thing that could end her family. Maybe Ronald won’t even resort to murder but just might go crazy with all the thinking he has to do to hide his crimes. Although people may not have been able to recognize this, Ronald doesn’t know how to be normal again.

The situation is dire for him as the constant idea in his head would be to kill off Phoebe too. But this could be avoided if Ronald makes sure to explain what happened in a way that satisfies Phoebe. Or else she might ask some questions that could get him into big trouble. The good thing is that we can confirm that Scarlet will be alive. From the synopsis of the next episode, we know that Scarlet and Ronald will still be together. He will be under bars but will soon escape to the sunset with Scarlet. But here, there is no indication that Phoebe will be with them, indicating that Phoebe could be harmed in the following two episodes. But even so, her mom will choose to be with the man who caused it, the reason to which should be interesting.
