When will ‘Big Sky’ Season 2 be back with episode 7, ‘Little Boxes’?

Big Sky Season 2 returns with all-new episodes on Dec. 9 and again on Dec. 16. The last Big Sky episode on Nov. 18 found the bearded stranger, Creary, bleeding out in his van. Harper (Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson) discovered him outside the diner she works at.

Meanwhile, Mark Lindor took another look around Wolfgang Legarski’s (John Carroll Lynch) ranch. In the upcoming episode promo, Wolf finds Mark snooping around, and he doesn’t look happy. Plus, Dietrich (David Meunier) took Stone to visit Smiley (Michael Tomsu). However, viewers know that Ren (Janina Gavankar) and Donno (Ryan O’Nan) killed Smiley in episode 6.

When Big Sky Season 2 Episode 7 returns, the “Little Boxes” promo teases a bloody body part in a small box. Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick) discover the small box labeled, “To the: Liar.” However, viewers know that Ren and Donno believe Dietrich lied about the money and drugs. Since fans saw them kill Smiley, it’s probably one of his body parts in the box, not Travis’s. 

‘Big Sky’ Season 2 Episode 8 press release reveals spoilers about episode 7

Spoiler alert — Travis Stone does not die in Big Sky Season 2 Episode 7 because he’s in the synopsis for episode 8, “The End Has No End.”

“Jenny and Cassie trade stories on recent run-ins with Tonya, leading Cassie to confront her about working for Ren,” the ABC press release reads. “Having left the ranch—and Wolf—behind him, Ronald revels in his newfound freedom, but old habits threaten to derail his plans. Elsewhere, the kids receive advice from an unlikely source, Travis is finally honest with Jenny and, later, Cassie receives devastating news.”

Travis returns, so we know he’s not dead. Additionally, it looks like Ronald Pergman (Brian Geraghty) escapes from the Wolfgang ranch in episode 7. Plus, the “unlikely source” that advises the teens might be Creary. No one may die in Big Sky “Little Boxes.”
