‘Big Sky’: Preview Episode 8 ‘End is Near’ with Photos

by Matthew Wilson

The crime thriller “Big Sky” is preparing for its endgame with episode eight “End is Near.” Here’s a sneak peek of the upcoming episode.

According to the synopsis of the episode: “Cassie and Jenny grow more suspicious of the circumstances with every visit to the hospital. While Ronald finds himself in a precarious situation thanks to a nosy paperboy. With his back against the wall, Ronald will have to address his inner demons. And decide just how far is too far.”

Based on the ending of Episode 7 and trailer, Ronald is on the run and Jenny and Cassie are hot on his tail. Do the promotional photos spoil the end encounter and Ronald’s ultimate fate? There’s an image of the trucker, and he appears to be behind bars. But knowing the psychopathic truck driver, it can’t be as simple as that.

Ronald Will Commit a Kidnapping

The crux of the episode seems to revolve around a paperboy, who witnesses Ronald. It seems as if the truck driver will kidnap the boy, leading to a ticking clock for main characters Jenny and Cassie. The duo must attempt to find the boy and rescue him from Ronald before it’s too late.

The truck driver has been increasingly irrational the past few episodes as the fear of getting caught has made him more desperate and crazy than he already is. Just ask his now-dead mother.

With Ronald at his most cruel and unpredictable, the young boy’s life is truly in danger. As he says in the trailer, “The only way out of this is to hurt people.”

Meanwhile on the Rick-front, the corrupted sheriff is still in the hospital. During the last episode, Rick’s nefarious deeds finally came back to haunt him. One of his victims, Grace, identified the man as her abductor. And Rick currently faces murder charges among a host of other crimes.

From what we can tell, it seems as if Cassie will have a face-to-face with Rick at the hospital. Cassie, of course, was the one responsible for putting him in the hospital.

She shot the corrupt officer in the head in a wound that should have killed him. But now due to the injury, Rick says he doesn’t remember the crimes that he committed. Perhaps, he is faking in a bid to avoid being punished for his crimes.

Resolution to That Cliffhanger

The last episode ended with the mother of all cliffhangers. (Well, minus a mother since Ronald murdered his in cold blood). Cassie and Jenny arrived at Rick’s house while Ronald is upstairs attempting to destroy evidence of his crimes. The teaser promises an exciting conclusion to this cliffhanger.

Apparently, Ronald gets away from Cassie and Jenny. But the two appear hot on his trail, and with his picture plastered across town, Ronald’s days may be numbered.
