Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story Episode 7 Recap:
‘Dirty John’ season 2 episode 7 is titled ‘The Shillelagh.’
The episode features the moment that has been teased since the first installment. In the previous episode, we have seen Betty buying a gun from a store. Linda has her friends over and she discusses her bachelorette party plans with them. Linda talks to her friends about how Betty still drops offensive messages on their phone. She even mocks Betty by reenacting one of the messages, making her friends wonder how she manages to deal with the hatred. Betty heads over to Dan’s house to leave her kids and ends up stealing Dan and Linda’s wedding guest list.
Betty and Dan’s kids accidentally find the gun at her house and their son informs Dan about it, who dismisses the possibility that Betty might actually shoot him and Linda with it. Linda overhears the conversation and breaks into Betty’s house to find the guest list but ends up stealing her diary. Dan slams Linda’s behavior and asks her to return it. Betty comes to know about the missing diary and fumes in anger upon visualizing how her ex-husband and his fiancee might be laughing at her misery. Betty is forced to return it after being summoned by the court. Dan tightens the security around their wedding venue to prevent Betty from sabotaging their big day. After their wedding, Dan and Linda take the kids to watch the Notre Dame-USC football game, at a place where Dan and Betty made memories.
After they are back, Betty’s son confesses to her that he turned down a Disneyland trip with his friends to be with his mother. Betty gets emotional and keeps thinking about how her life is ruined, while Dan and Linda are having fun. She takes her gun along with the keys she had stolen from her daughter and storms out of her home, over to Dan and Linda’s abode. In the next scene, we see Betty, frantically calling her friends and confessing to her crime. When she reaches home, her friend from HALT asks her to surrender and get a lawyer. Betty is later informed by her new attorney that Dan and Linda are dead. At the court, Betty pleads not guilty but the judge directs Betty to remain in custody without bail.
