Rising Storm - Midseason 2 Distant Storm


Secrets, Sex and Scandals …

Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy… Get ready. The storm is coming.

As Sebastian and Marylee plot to cover up Sebastian’s sexual escapade, Ginny and Dakota continue to reel from the fallout of Dakota’s announcement. But it is the Rush family that’s left to pick up the pieces as Payton, Brittany and Jeffry each cope with Sebastian’s betrayal in their own way…

My Review:

Distant Thunder by Larissa Ione is the second mid-season episode of Rising Storm and holeeeyyyy moley! Talk about duplicity and cunning! This episode is dripping with it.

This episode really showcased how ruthless Marylee Rush is and if I didn’t already have a strong dislike for her before this episode, I sure do now.  This lady will stop at nothing to try to downplay her son Rush’s transgressions.  I’m worried for Ginny and (if you can believe it) Dakota.  I don’t think Marylee is going to stop going after these two gals until she gets what she wants and by the end of this episode she hasn’t gotten it all squared away and I know she’s not going away anytime soon.

I’m also heartbroken for Logan and Ginny and want them to get back together desperately! I’m hoping that Logan will listen to his heart and come around eventually.  I know he has Marcus to lean on and I love their friendship.

Speaking of Marcus, Ms. Ione really set us up for what I fear is going to be some hell raining down on his family and I’m going to be a worried mess until I get my hands on the next episode!

Once again, Ms. Ione really knocked my socks off and wrote one heck of an episode!  I could almost hear the evil laughter cackling out of the pages from Marylee!
