Speaking of Roman, he enters his office to find Adaline face-down on the floor, gagged and hogtied amid considerable disarray with one of Hollis Greene's patented scripture reams on her back, and a videotape as a paperweight. "Oh, God," he says, going to her.
Roman's first call is apparently to Bill, saying that some shit's gone down that's bigger than both of them. Bill plays dumb, saying he knows about Orlean Abbott's arrest. Roman's like, "Not that, dummy," though with more words. "The Greenes have crawled back from their disgusting compound in Mexico," he says. Bill tries to jump in, possibly to warn Roman about something, but Roman didn't call to listen. He summons Bill to an emergency meeting of the UEB and hangs up.
Bill then calls Joey, who describes a veritable siege state at Juniper Creek. Bill's worried that he can't get through to Barb, but Joey assures him that she left less than a half hour ago. Bill's already heading out the door, on his way to the UEB meeting. So maybe he and Barb can wave to each other when they meet on the road.
But it looks like it's going to take Barb a while to get out of there, because there are cars lined up at the gates to the compound, and Juniper Creek police are searching every last one of them. There's even a sign next to the road declaring the day's security threat level "Severe." Sitting in the line of cars, Barb takes in this scene, and then the spectacle of one of Roman's red Hummers coming in from the opposite direction. She sees the man himself conferring with some of his rent-a-cops before he gets back in and is driven past her. It looks like he spotted her. So even if she hadn't planned to confront him, she can't exactly skulk off now. Barb turns her car around and goes back into the compound.
When Roman returns to his office via the back door, Barb is already there trying to get past the guards in the front room. After settling himself at her desk, he buzzes her through. When she enters, he tells her they're in a crisis situation. "I'll be brief," Barb says. "What you did to me was heartless and cruel." Roman repeats his excuse about "living in the light." Barb snaps, "You're a false prophet who rules by fear and I'm not afraid of you." Roman responds, "I am only trying, fitfully and imperfectly, to keep the original word alive on the face of this planet." That's a good tack with Barb, claiming to be a flawed human instead of an all-powerful instrument of God whom she must obey. If he keeps this up, she'll be trying to save him next. I hear she's got a couple of openings. For now, though, she just tells him to leave her family alone. Roman scoffs that that's not going to happen; he's been watching Bill his whole life. "And I will always watch him. And by extension I will always watch over his family. You're my family!" he says, all helpless-like. Barb just shakes her head and walks out. She doesn't want to hang out and say hi to Bill when he gets here?
