Big Sky Season 2 Episode 18 Promo
Take a look at the Big Sky Season 2 Episode 18 promo, Catch a Few Fish, below:
What to expect in Big Sky Season 2 Episode 18?
The official synopsis of the episode states, “In a struggle between head and heart, final resolutions are made as Jenny works to find Travis before he reaches a dangerous point of no return; meanwhile, Ren and Jag find a new familial bond and decide together how to handle their father now that he’s crossed a serious line. After receiving a startling surprise from Scarlett, Cassie changes the course of her quest for justice forever. Later, with Tubb out of commission for the time being, a new sheriff comes to town; and after getting fully acquainted with Cassie and Jenny, it seems like he may just stick around for a while.”
By reading the synopsis it is clear that the finale is going to have a lot of drama and unfolding of events which the fans have been waiting for to reach a satisfactory conclusion or even a cliffhanger for the next season.
Some of the crucial questions that need to be answered are what exactly happens next in the plot as the viewers have seen that Jensen Ackles, a guest star, opens the promo and shows that final decisions are made in a conflict between head and heart as Jenny strives to find Travis before he crosses a dangerous line; simultaneously, Ren and Jag form a new familial relationship and determine how to deal with their father now that he’s crossed a major boundary.
Moreover, Cassie’s quest for justice is permanently altered once she receives an unexpected gift from Scarlett. With Tubb out of commission for the time being, a new sheriff arrives in town, and after getting to know Cassie and Jenny, it appears as if he may stay for a while. These plot summaries and promo give viewers a taste of the plot, but not the complete picture that the show’s writers have written as a screenplay.
As a result, we have no way of knowing what major information or surprises will occur in the last episode, how the season will end, or what cliffhangers and storylines will emerge before the conclusion. As a result, we advise fans to wait patiently and watch the episodes in order to make conclusions that will lead to the release of Big Sky Season 3, as the series was officially renewed by ABC on May 13, 2022. This will help to establish the tone of the next season for the viewers and increase engagement with the Big Sky Fandom.

Big Sky Season 2 Episode 17: A Quick Recap
The episode, Family Matters, was released on May 12, 2022. The episode is directed by Loren Yaconelli and written by Kyle Long & Brian McCauley Johnson. It is estimated that the episode was viewed by 2.13 million US viewers. The official synopsis of the episode states, “A concerned Jenny searches for Travis; Scarlett, desperate to protect her daughter, makes an unexpected phone call that could change the course of more than one life; Jag finds out the truth about his father.”
There is a lot to unpack from this episode, so we’ll only highlight a few of the important plotlines to help viewers grasp the series’ overall direction without giving every major detail in case you plan to binge-watch the series. So this short summary will help you speculate on the character’s story arc the show seems to follow.
Take a look at the official promo below:
The episode continues with the events of episode sixteen as after being shot by Richard Ford, Sheriff Tubb is in the ER. Where Jenny Hoyt pays him a visit and discovers a male nurse who appears to be caring for him but is actually holding a syringe. This leads to suspicion as Jenny begins to distrust him after he learns her name and she refuses to leave.
On the other hand, Jag notes on the drive home what he and Ren agreed to in the last episode, namely that their father should step aside and allow them to run the company. Instead, he’s on the receiving end of Richard Ford’s gun. Jenny and Cassie Dewell are discussing Tubb’s weird man in his room.
With this, the viewers get to know that Richard has demanded that Jag drive him to the spot where his son Mason’s car was discovered which leads to Verr telling Richard that his son must have been weak if he was doing drugs. Richard turns down his offer of money in exchange for his life. Jenny muses aloud as she drives around, allowing Richard to take care of Verr and Jag. They find Jag’s SUV parked next to Mason’s abandoned car. Jag apologizes to Richard for his son’s murder as Richard forces them both to kneel. Verr intervenes, ordering Richard to kill Jag.
As the episode progresses we see that Jenny and Cassie rush to the river, where they find Richard staring into the water next to Jag’s lifeless body. Ren and Donno visit the emergency room to see Jag and run into Jenny. In addition to this, Verr accuses Ren of removing Jag from the equation once he’s gone.
When a police car flashes its siren at the drive-through, Humbert turns around to see Scarlet and Phoebe gone. Jenny visits Sheriff Tubb and assures him that Jag is recovering in the next room. Jag is surprised that his father was unharmed in the fight with Richard. He and Ren had agreed to put their differences aside.
Much later in the episode, Cassie attends her first grief counseling session in a group setting. Wolf informed her about his agreement with the syndicate to reform Ronald. Scarlet, according to Cassie, will never be safe no matter what. She begs him to let her assist him in escaping. Travis responds, “You always knew you were going to have to let me go.”
Scarlet is parked in a residential area, and Phoebe inquires as to where they are. Cassie is the one that comes out of the house and gets into her truck. “I’ve lost a step, and it’s probably time for me to stand down and transfer things over,” Verr says, as the episode reaches its conclusion. This all leads to the season finale which makes the fans wonder about the potential outcome of this plotline and how the characters will deal with these situations on their way.
