How does T-Lock fit into the storyline in ‘Big Sky’?

When Big Sky Season 2 Episode 6 opens, Harper (Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson) chats with Creary (Ryan De Quintal). She thanks him for saving her, but he won’t explain why he’s helping the teens. She doesn’t see it, but he’s wounded. Meanwhile, Cassie visits Max to return her keys and asks about the charm on her keychain. Max makes up an excuse about it, claiming it means she’s single. T-Lock (Arturo Del Puerto) tries to invite Cassie inside for a smoothie, but she declines. Harper freaks out because she can’t find her matching pink charm. 

Max’s mother, Rachel (T.V. Carpio), told T-Lock about the drugs and money. The creepy boyfriend insists that Max brings the drugs to him. The four teens agree to give him only the drugs. However, Max doesn’t trust the shady man (and neither do viewers). What does T-Lock have to do with everything? Later in the episode, we finally find out that T-Lock knows Smiley. The two agree to sell the drugs together, keeping it a secret from Dietrich (David Meunier).

‘Big Sky’ Season 2 Episode 6: Jenny almost blows Travis’ cover 

Travis and Jenny meet up, but Smiley sees them talking. Before Smiley can do anything about it, Donno and Ren capture Travis. They question him about Dietrich and who he might die for. Meanwhile, Jenny has a minor meltdown because Travis insists they cool down. Later, she heads back to his hotel room to find him missing. That’s when viewers find Donno trying to get Travis to talk. The undercover cop finally gives up Smiley’s name and whereabouts, but not after a brutal beating. When Ren and Donno arrive at Smiley’s house, they kill the man.

Mark Lindor visits the Wolf Legarski ranch

Later in Big Sky Season 2 Episode 6, Denise (Dedee Pfeiffer) and Mark Lindor (Omar Metwally) check out Wolfgang Legarski’s website. Plus, Cassie takes Mark to lunch to ask about Max’s babysitter’s keychain. She also admits she’s finally happy to go out on a date with Mark.

Over at Wolfgang’s ranch, Ronald Pergman (Brian Geraghty) becomes suspicious of Scarlet Leyendecker (Anja Savcic). She lies to Ronald about dancing with Wolf. Meanwhile, Mark pulls up at the ranch, so Agatha (Romy Rosemont) locks Ronald and Scarlet in a room.

Mark feeds Wolf a story about being a roofer who recently moved in with his girlfriend. However, Wolf doesn’t believe him, and Mark’s dog begins barking at Ronald’s location. Mark admits that he’s a U.S. Marshall looking for Ronald Pergman. Wolf tells Mark what he wants to hear, but Mark still finds the ranch suspicious. He heads back to investigate, and that’s when the episode ends. 

Cassie finally makes the connection with the heart-shaped charm

Meanwhile, Cassie visits Harper at the diner where she works. The private detective notices a heart-shaped tattoo on Harper’s wrist that matches the rock at the crime scene. After Cassie leaves, Harper finds Creary bleeding out in his van. It looks like Big Sky Season 2 begins heading down the road of deaths weekly. Now that viewers got to know some of the characters, it’s time to start killing them off like in Big Sky Season 1. 

When does ‘Big Sky’ Season 2 return in 2021?

According to the ABC press release, Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny fear Travis might be dead when Big Sky Season 2 Episode 7, “Little Boxes,” returns on Dec. 9, 2021.

“Cassie and Jenny discover a gruesome message meant for Dietrich in their search to find Travis, leading them to fear the worst,” the press release reads. “Elsewhere, Tonya works to gain Donno’s trust and Ren’s ear, and the kids hope to stay out of sight as they tend to Creary’s injuries.
