So then Bill goes back to work. From his basement, he's on the phone with Lawyer Lee, who's been meeting with Don in the darkened Home Plus office. Lee says they have an appointment at the local ATF office at 9:00 the next morning, and the ATF is very interested in nabbing the Greenes. I would have thought that after Waco, the ATF would be rather leery about becoming perceived as the ATFC (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Cults), but apparently not. Bill puts off whoever is knocking on his basement door as he frets about going to the cops. Lee thinks getting the authorities involved beats having firebombs get tossed at Bill's store or his house, and Bill can't really argue that. "Is there anything he can't say?" Don asks on the extension. Lee just tells Bill to "tread lightly." Bill thanks Lee and Don, hangs up, makes a note of the appointment, and tells whoever's upstairs to come in. Of all people, it's Nicki who enters, and she's in a conciliatory mood. On behalf of Barb and Margene, she's stepping up and offering to make her nights his night off, just in case it really is about her. "You don't have to take this out on Barb and Margie," she says. Bill sits her down and says that's not it. And then he gets all horny-faced. He kisses her, lies her back, and reaches up her skirt. Her white cotton panties come off, with no resistance from her whatsoever. But when his head disappears beneath her skirt, she has a minor freak-out. She asks if that's really what he wants, because she prefers it "face to face." Bill's already undoing his belt. "Is that okay?" she asks. Well, given the fact that the words are barely out of her mouth before he's positioned her on his lap and put her right to work, it seems to be. "You're a very good girl," he moans. She nods obediently. Barb doesn't come down and catch them, because the show wouldn't be as interesting if she killed them both.
In the morning, Barb is in the kitchen telling an unseen individual what it was like when she first married Bill, and how she couldn't imagine sharing that love. "When Nicki came along, it was the hardest moment of my entire life," she says, as we see that she's talking to a very serious-looking Brynn. Which I'm sure Ben will appreciate. "Polygamy is a hard life. If you decide you still want it, you need to really be on board." Brynn? So not on board.
