Bill's appointment at the ATF office is not going especially well. "How many wives do you have?" asks the agent he and Lee are meeting. Bill tells her that he was kicked out of Juniper Creek at 14, and he's totally different from Roman and the Greenes. The agent cuts off Bill's self-righteous lecture by tossing him a couple of grisly crime scene photos from Mexico, which show that apparently the Greenes have been up to some south-of-the border killin' of their own brothers, which is why they're back in the U.S. now. Which seems kind of backward. In more ways than the Greenes already are, that is. This is news to Bill, who asks what he needs to do. The agent tells Bill to take her there, like it's his fault the Greenes are homicidal nutbars. Lee objects to Bill getting put in harm's way, and asks for "a little respect" in light of the risk Bill took in turning in the Greenes to begin with. The agent just chuckles, and gets a nice long chunk of dialogue to show off a Southie accent that Jimmy Fallon would consider too broad. "Where I come from, you're all the same. Mormons, LDS, polygamists…you can't just wrap it up in God and make it all okay." She warns him never to leave Utah. "I would feel no guilt puttin' you behind baahs." Okay, lots of people have issues and questions about other people's religions, and may even disapprove of certain tenets or sects. This chick's just a bigot. Bill asks her about her religion, making it an open-ended question rather than just assuming from her Boston accent that she's Irish Catholic. When she says it's none of his business, he says, "Exactly," and tells her to start writing. Wicked pissah.
Ben is still flouting his groundedness, this time showing up at Brynn's work, where she's a hospital volunteer. He's basically begging her not to break up with him. She says that he has to tell her if he's planning to take another wife, ever. Ben denies it, saying he only told his parents that to get them off his back. Brynn says she understands: "That's the only kind of family you know." Before getting back to work, she gives Ben the ring back and kisses him for a long time. "You're gonna make some girls really happy one day, Benny," she says. Dude. Never let Barb get your relationship in her crosshairs.
The Greene hideout is under siege. Selma and Giant Moe Howard crouch behind an overturned table they're using as a barricade, while Hollis incongruously sits in a chair behind them, leaving Bill a voice mail. A dozen or so Greenies huddle fearfully around him. Outside, there's a helicopter overhead, and an ATF battering ram denting the steel door at the end of the hall. The corridor seems to lengthen in one of those fancy Hitchcock focus-pull dealies. Hollis says, "It is noon forty-five o'clock. The enemy is at the gates. We may live or we may die. We gave your grandfather safe harbor. Protected him and gave him refuge. We now open the floodgates of vengeance. You will all atone for this betrayal." What, no epistolary sign-off this time? Something along the lines of, "Looking forward to our next meeting, most sincerely, Hollis Greene"? And then we see the Greenes and their little cult running for the back exit. Which I'm sure the ATF has sealed off, right?
