Boomer is training someone new to be assistant manager and Annie gets an idea.
She goes to see the others. She wants to rob the store again and leave money to show that there is a laundering operation behind the scenes. They are reluctant but she points it would get the money for the surgery and that’s enough. She goes over the changes at the store they need to know about as they plan. Ruby has dinner with her family and then tells Stan that she got an advance from corporate. She has to go pick it up.
Beth drops the kids off with Dean and tells them to stay with his mother. He wants to know what the problem is and she tells him to make the dinner reservation. Beth and Ruby roll in for the robbery while Annie is on shift. She and Ruby go in the back and set things up while Beth handles the front end. Boomer is out on a date with the blackmailer all the while. As the cops roll in, Annie gets caught by the security guard stashing some cash of her own. She agrees to do “anything” to get away with it.
Ruby and Beth play it like they were victims and move out with the crowd. Annie tells the cops about the bravery of the security guy. The FBI agent moves in on the scene and goes through the safe.The blackmailer hears a noise. She finds a recorder hidden in a Bible. Annie goes to pick up her daughter and sees her fitting in well at the new private school. Ruby pays for the surgery in cash. Blackmailer confesses to Beth. Dean is on his way home for the anniversary dinner when he gets distracted by a woman jogging.
He ends up in a car accident and while at the hospital Beth finds out that Dean does not have cancer. She sees Rio’s bust on the news. At the diner, Beth tells the others about going to Canada and taking over Rio’s spot in the chain. It’s not true, but it could be. Boomer goes to see the blackmailer. She confronts him first about trying to rape Annie and then recording her. Annie and Gregg drink together and talk about how good the school is for Sadie.
The surgery was a success and everyone is in good spirits. Ruby steps into the hall to track down some Jell-O and Stan follows. He put the pieces together and confronts her about it. He knows she robbed the store. She knew that would be the breaking point and she did it anyway. Beth gets home to find Rio and a battered Dean. He’s out and the only way to take him down is to kill him. She asks him not to kill her or Dean. Rio laughs and gives her the gun.
So that’s the end of the season and I honestly don’t care about any of these people. I’m not going to watch another though I don’t expect it to get renewed anyway. I’m glad the kids all seem to be doing well. That’s a plus.
