In this week’s episode of big sky, the plot thickens as a new criminal is introduced and it’s not the one we expected; Jenny’s mother. Beau and Jenny must team up to help her while Cassie pursues a lead on the missing hiker. Read on to find out what happened in this week’s episode of big sky“A Brief History of Crime.”
Things get even more complicated for Jenny when her mother comes to town. An always-on-the-go conwoman, Jenny instantly recognizes the company’s fake name when it comes across her desk during a case. Jenny and Beau find her in a hotel room where she informs Jenny that her partner stole her money and she followed him here to get it back. Wanting to help her mother in spite of herself, Beau and Jenny set up a jab to stop the man. Undercover as a husband and wife looking for an investment opportunity, they use the money from the precinct to shut down the guy.
Everything goes according to plan… most of the time. Beau ends up throwing the partner’s bodyguard through a window, while Jenny is forced to chase him onto the roof. When they return to the office, the money is gone. Jenny realizes that her mother set them up, knowing the partner would cause a scene and she could sneak in and take the money. Biggest shock of all? She brings this money directly to Tonya and Donno. Jenny is understandably furious that she was tricked by her mother and vows to find her and get the money back.
On the trails

Still hot on the case of the missing hiker (who we know is dead), Cassie and Denise get a call from his mom when he emails an “update” on his hike. The email contains a photo and a message that he is fine, but his specified location is much further away than expected and the mother finds him suspicious. He usually just called or texted. The duo set out to find the exact spot of the photo happening on none other than Walter on their way to the trail. Cassie almost sees the body in the back of her truck, but Denise calls her away from near death (again). When they find the location, Cassie notes that the peaks are covered in snow in the photo, but there’s just no way they’re snowed in now. The photo is fake or old, which begs the question, who sends these “updates” and why?
Sunny and Walter’s crime house
With Luke’s miraculous return to camp, it tells the story of a fight between him and Paige. He tells anyone who will listen that he got lost, fell and hit his head, and when he woke up, she was gone. Obviously, she decided to return to the camp, take all her things and leave immediately, walking towards the city. Without telling anyone. Or anyone seeing her. Interesting story that some believe and some don’t, the latter being mostly Emily, a few campers and Sunny’s husband. Sunny leaves to check the tent and returns claiming that Paige’s things are indeed missing.
Emily doesn’t buy a single inch of this story and returns to the woods to find the knife her father gave her (and which she sleeps under her pillow with), much to the annoyance of Avery who seems determined to hold her. apart. and not lose sight of it.
With suspicions mostly blunted, Sunny ventures to Walter’s house in the woods to ask if he knows anything about Paige but he swears he hasn’t seen her. With the likelihood of this raising more suspicion, she tells Walter that he needs to move the fallen hiker’s corpse to a more distant location. Walter digs up the body, but about to dump it, he gets into car trouble. Broken down but fixing the truck, Cassie and Denise spot him and stop to offer help. When Cassie approaches, she notices the tarp on the backseat and asks what’s under it. He grabs a knife but before he can act, Denise calls her back and they leave. Walter completes the mission but when Sunny learns that Cassie sees him, she is furious.

Late at night, Sunny digs a hole in the woods. Once it’s deep enough, she grabs a bag, with Paige’s bag throwing it into the hole in an attempt to keep another hiker’s disappearance out of the eyes of local law enforcement. Whether his tactic will work remains to be seen.
