As Big Love
heads further into the third season, we find out more about the challenges the Henricksons are about to face. While keeping their polygamous lifestyle a secret from the outside world is huge struggle to deal with, they still have deal with secrets that are bound to come out just like in tonight's episode.
Last time we saw Big Love
, Bill (Bill Paxton
), along with Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn
), Nicki (Chloe Sevigny
) and Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin
), continued to pursue Ana (Branka Katic), who's having a hard time getting used to the idea of dating being a group event. Margie insisted to Bill that it's Nicki's turn to get pregnant but unbeknownst to them, Nicki's using birth control pills. On the other hand, Barb learned that she may be sick again and Bill realized that this is the reason Barb changed her mind about dating Ana. Bill made a plea to Jerry, who then agreed to the unlikely partnership. By the end of the episode, Barb found out from the doctor that her test is clean and she suddenly saw Ana joining the family in new light.
The drama continues in the episode “Prom Queen” where Bill contemplates on what to do with Rhonda, who may or may not testify at Roman's looming trial. Meanwhile, another potential witness, Kathy, goes underground with Joey and Wanda. When Frank finds himself at Lois' mercy, he tries to talk his way out of the quandary but to no avail.
Moreover, Bill's commitment is put to the test when Ana reveals something while he and Barb catch her in a compromising position. Margene, on the other hand, hears some distressing personal news but tries to keep her emotions to herself. At the same time, Barb's sister Cindy arrives in town to lead an anti-gaming committee that threatens the Henrickson's recent investments.
To make matters worse, Wanda reveals a secret about Nicki's past that even Bill doesn't know. As a result, this creates a riff, further aggravating Bill's fury towards Roman. As for Sarah, she decodes to attend her senior prom with Heather, with Ben and Frankie as their dates.
airs tonight at 9pm on HBO.
