Big Sky Season 1 Preview: Ronald on the Run; What's Rick's Real Deal?

You really have to give it to ABC's Big Sky, because they never seem to run out of twists and turns to throw at Cassie (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny (Katheryn Winnick). By now, we thought the pair would've been able to close this case by now- but not when you're talking about a case that a ton more far-reaching than anyone (especially the viewers) realize. Ronald's (Brian Geraghty) still on the run and feeling desperate- and as we saw last week, he's willing to eliminate anything or anyone that puts him in line with getting caught. But is it the end of the road for him with this week's "The End is Near"? And it looks like you can't keep a bad Rick (John Carroll Lynch) down- not only is he still alive, but he's shielded by "memory loss" as well as a lawyer who seems really committed to their client (Hmmm…). With that in mind and with an episode title that doesn't bode well for at least one person, here's a look at the preview images, promo, and episode overview for Big Sky:
