Dewell and Hoyt find the identity of the truck driver as Ronald Pergman, along with Sheriff Tubb as well as other detectives Jerrie Kennedy and Mark Lindor. But they didn’t discover Scarlett Leyendecker as an accomplice, allowing the two to split off before the arrest squad arrives.
Human trafficking syndicate accomplices assault the police vehicle, allowing Ronald to escape away and reconnect with Scarlett, while Lindor and Tubb are both injured in the collision and Jenny is wounded. However, Cassie decides to pursue Ronald.
Season 2 begins with a lot on the line. The first episode of Big Sky season 2, titled “Wakey, Wakey,” has a summary like this:
In the meantime, Cassie works to get her mind off her near-death experience, but a mystery accident is sure to bring the two of them together. “Ronald can’t get out of the situation he’s in.”
