After a few weeks off, ABC's Big Sky returns this week with "Mother Nurture" as Cassie (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny (Katheryn Winnick) try to keep an all-out war from breaking out between local drug lords and the Canadian cartel that's come to visit- all while trying to keep from getting killed themselves. Meanwhile, Brian Geraghty's Ronald (appears) to be coming around to Wolf's (John Carroll Lynch) way of thinking, while a plan to save Jeremy Ray Taylor's Bridger (and stay alive while doing it) gets underway and Jerrie (Jesse James Keitel) is haunted by more old ghosts from her past.
