Last week on Big Love,
Ana (Branka Katic) finally accepted the proposal and eventually tied the knot with Bill (Bill Paxton
) as his fourth wife. Bill decided Ana will be living with Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn
) until they can work out something more permanent much to the dismay of Nicki (Chloe Sevigny
) and Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin
), who wanted Ana to live with her instead. Disturbed to hear that Barb delegates their duties, Ana demanded her own house, especially after Bill announced that Ana should live with Nicki since they know each other the least. And when Ana offered to help with a down payment, Bill informed her that she should be putting all her money into the communal pot. However, Ana blew up and refused to pool her earnings. By the end of the episode, Ana realized that she can't stay in the marriage so she asked for a divorce.
The drama continues in the episode “Come, Ye Saints” in which the Henricksons embark on a 2,500-mile road-trip pilgrimage to a Joseph Smith shrine in Cumorah, New York. As reported previously,
this installment offers a lot of intrigue and juicy drama. Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello even describes it as “the finest hour of television all season.” Moreover, “stuff happens. Ben-and-Margene stuff. Sarah-pregnancy stuff. Nicki-birth-control stuff. Big stuff.”
But before the Henricksons reach their destination in Cumorah, where Bill intends to bury a family time capsule in the sacred earth, a series of raucous revelations test the limits of their family bonds, as well as Bill's faith.
