Bill drives out to the country and looks out over the mountains, the Book of Mormon in his hand and the Lincoln biography Team of Rivals sitting on his briefcase in the shotgun seat. Bill sets Mormon on the dash and clasps his hands on the steering wheel to pray. But the words don't come.
At least not until he's in Don's house, kneeling on the floor of Don's cavernous living room with Don's prayer group (which includes Jason and, today, Ben). It looks like he decided to accept Don's invitation after all. Bill says he believes in plural marriage, and he has accepted the challenge. "I believe it is my duty to keep my family together on this earth," he says, "and I pray for the guidance to do that. To hold my family together." Don smiles in satisfaction.
With the prayer meeting over, Bill heads upstairs to where the wives are -- including his own, he suspects. Don's first wife, Peg, intercepts him at the top of the stairs and tells him, "She says she can't see you." But she points at a closed bedroom door before rejoining her sister-wives in folding linens. Bill knocks on the door and tells Barb to open up, saying this has "gone on long enough. You can't keep blaming me for what you signed on for." Aw, how can Barb possibly resist such a sweet-talker? Without opening the door, Barb says she did it for Bill. Bill agrees, but says he's stopped blaming himself for it. This doesn't seem to impress Barb as much as Bill might have hoped. He petulantly asks her what she wants. Barb doesn't know, and she wonders if it hasn't all been a mistake. Bill protests that the entire litany of family members is not a mistake. "Don't you lecture me on my family," Barb says through the closed door. "I sacrificed our love for the love I have for this family." To be fair, that wasn't so much a lecture -- it only sounded like one because it was a really long list of names. Bill looks behind him, where Don is now standing with his wives. He closes the door so Bill and Barb can have a little privacy. A bit late now, with the scene over and all.
