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?
In his office, Bill finishes playing back the message for Lee, who assures him that the Greenes fled into Arizona about twenty minutes ago. Nice work, ATF, and particularly the bigoted Bostonian, for letting the Greenes get so faah. Still, Lee assures Bill that it'll be "hours, not days" before the Greenes and their people are all in custody. Plus the ATF found a weapons cache (which doesn't explain why Selma had been armed with only a claw hammer), which means the Greenes aren't going to be back on the street any time soon. Bill thanks Lee, and says he owes him a gift basket.
When Bill gets home, he asks Barb if he can trade his nights off for one makeup night. "I need someone to talk to tonight," he says. He takes Barb's hand, and they kiss tenderly. She really can't resist vulnerability on any level, from anyone. Bill could spend his entire life on the sofa drinking beer if he were only willing to fully exploit his twisted childhood. As for the regular night off, she's ready to compromise: she wants him to take two nights off a month, and spend them with his children. Bill nods in agreement. And apparently he needs to start right now, because Ben's in the basement, waiting to talk to him.
