Entitled “Going Rogue”, Bad Sisters Ep 9 is the penultimate episode of this enthralling series. The true mark of a well-written story is the ability to leave clues for the discerning viewer to pick and arrive at the right conclusions. That is certainly true of this series as this episode confirms a couple of our plot theories – not that these were presented in an obvious manner but only with proper observations and logical deductions.
First off, at the beginning of Bad Sisters Ep 9, it is confirmed – sadly for Becka – that it was Mina she had locked in the freezer and had killed rather than John Paul, the intended target. This of course shatters Becka completely and she is on the verge of confessing her crimes to the police to allay her crushing guilt. Eva, after being humiliated (again) by John Paul in the office, vows to finish him off once and for all and the sisters concoct a plan to be executed on Grace’s birthday.
This situation is not helped by Matt Claffin, now convinced that Becka (and her sisters) were involved in John Paul’s death, compounded by his sister-in-law’s ill health. Irony is that as we previously suspected, none of the sisters were responsible for John Paul’s actual death. As on the night before John Paul’s death, every single sister had a valid alibi. However, the evidence points to three other suspects who had every reason to want John Paul – from Peter (the neighbour he framed as a pedophile), Ben, Ursula’s lover (whose affair John Paul has threaten to expose) and Gabrielle, who quit his job because of John Paul’s homophobic taunts.
Bad Sisters Ep 9 provides us with the perfect setup for the series finale. Who actually killed John Paul and will the sisters be held to account for their murder attempts? We shall see! Highly recommended.
