‘Big Sky’ Season 2 recap: Ren and Donno came to Helena looking for money and drugs

To briefly recap Big Sky Season 2, Ren and Donno (Ryan O’Nan) traveled to Helena, Montana, to find their missing money and drugs. Jag wasn’t mentioned in Big Sky Episode 1. Big Sam (Eric Weiss) tried to cut off their drug supplier by killing Ringo (Alexander Alayon Jr). However, he failed in his murder. Instead, Ringo escaped from the body bag, causing Sam to drive off the road and crash in episode 1. When Deputy Harvey (Michael Malarkey) discovered the crash and the two men, he shot Ringo and disposed of both bodies.

However, the deputy also did a terrible job of his assignment because someone found the bodies in episode 3. Plus, before Harvey could grab the money and drugs, four teens took it. Ren and Donno captured Sam’s girlfriend, Tonya (Jamie-Lynn Sigler), hoping to get information from her, but she led them to Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury), instead. While Deputy Harvey is on the payroll of Ren’s family, the cop isn’t getting anywhere either. Cassie and Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick) know they can’t trust him. With Ren struggling to find the money and drugs, it looks like her brother, Jag, might make a trip to Big Sky.

Who is Jag in ‘Big Sky?’ Are Ren and Jag sister and brother?

In Big Sky Season 2 Episode 3, viewers find out that Ren and Jag are siblings. While Ren’s watching the Dewell and Hoyt Investigative office, Jag calls her. He calls her “Sis” and repeatedly asks if she needs him to send reinforcements. However, Ren insists she has things under control.
