Margene's at home when she gets a call from Ana, saying that Bill dumped her. Margene's almost as upset and confused as Ana was. Unfortunately, Ana can't talk at work, and asks if she can call later. Margene agrees and hangs up, wondering what the hell just happened. You think she'd be more or less worried if Ana had also discovered Bill's flat-tired Gigantomobile in the parking lot with Bill nowhere in sight?
Barb does homework in her study, but she jumps up when Sarah appears in the doorway, in tears. Barb hugs her, asking her what happened, as Sarah breaks down good and proper. Looks like they made up.
That white van speeds out of town, to what looks like an abandoned factory with dilapidated trailers and campers parked outside. A couple of people open the vehicle entrance door, then slam it shut as soon as the van is inside. And it looks like people are living in there -- people in the same sorry state as the women who torched Bill's boat, surrounded by dogs and crappy furniture and generally untenable conditions, like Heaven's Gate meets Norma Rae. Selma and Giant Moe Howard lead Bill through the building to the office, which Hollis Green has taken over for himself. He's a scary gray man in an armchair and dark glasses, wearing a suit and no tie with his shirt buttoned to the neck, glaring at Bill without moving or speaking. He could have been played by Dennis Hopper, except that the character's frightening vibe probably would have been undercut by people's association with more cuddly Hopper characters like Frank Booth. And besides, this is Lynchian enough as it is. Bill asks Hollis when he got back. "I'm not back," Hollis answers blankly. Which explains why he's got his people set up in a building that looks ripe for a shooting rampage by Kiefer Sutherland. A metal curtain slams down over the window behind Bill. "Kills directional microphones," Selma explains to him. This explanation doesn't seem to relax Bill as much as you might think. Hollis gets right to his point, which is that he made an offer on Weber Gaming. "God wants us to possess it for our portfolio. You took it. That company and that boat are ours." How is he able to be running mergers and acquisitions when he's clearly a fugitive from justice? Bill doesn't offer to let Hollis keep what's left of the boat; he barely screws up the courage to point out that it was a legal transaction. "You will disgorge that company," Hollis instructs, and tips a glance in Selma's direction. That's all Selma needs; she fires up a blowtorch and orders Giant Moe Howard, "Get his pants down!" While Selma excitedly heats up a branding iron, which probably still has charred bits of Carter Reese's tuchus on it, Bill struggles to keep his pants on for the second time this episode. Finally he gets a brainwave and yells, "Weber Gaming was purchased for Roman Grant!" Hollis calls off his goons, giving Bill a chance to explain that he's on the UEB. "There hasn't been a Henrickson on the UEB for twenty years," Hollis scoffs. But when Bill insists that there is now, Hollis tells Bill to tell Roman that Weber Gaming is theirs. This is a pretty clear message, so of course Hollis has to muddy things up by brandishing a closely-printed, margin-free sheaf of what I assume is scripture and declaiming, "We will put forth our hand to steady the ark of God's covenant. We will vanquish those falsely anointed heads of the priesthood." Bill presses what little advantage he has, saying that an assault on Roman's board members is an affront to Roman's authority, but he'll talk to Roman about giving up Weber Gaming. Hollis rises from his chair and tells Selma to drive Bill back to town. Selma looks disappointed about not getting to brand anyone today, but he follows his scary-ass brother/father/leader/husband/whatever's orders. As anyone with a brain in their head would.
Barb goes and knocks on the Tuttles' door. Heather's dad is still in uniform, and Rhonda and Heather's mom are at the piano, and Heather herself appears at the foot of the stairs. Barb firmly tells Heather's dad, "Whatever your misgivings may be about my family, you will keep the children out of it." Heather apologizes to Barb, but her dad sends her back upstairs, folds his arms, and informs Barb, "It is my duty to investigate allegations of abuse." Barb says there's no abuse at her home. As someone with experience in the public schools, she knows whereof she speaks. And furthermore, "You do not take the wild, unsupported allegations of a damaged pathological liar to question someone. Shame on you. If you wish to question my daughter, you'd better damn well have a basis, or I will bring you up for unprofessional conduct so fast your head will spin." Heather's dad blinks, and Barb asks to talk to Rhonda. Rhonda agrees, and she goes to meet Barb right outside the front door.
