Back in her guest bedroom, Nicki hurriedly changes her clothes and starts packing. Bill comes in, asking what's going on, and she tells him to screw the UEB meeting because they have to get out of there. She tells Bill what Alby told her. Except she leaves out the part about Roman's exposure of their family. That'll be saved for later in the season, presumably. Hearing that the cops are on their way, Bill goes to the window and looks down at the scene below. Nobody's there except a bunch of milling Creekers in white, and a black-blazered photographer who's talking to Roman near the bleachers. Nicki shakes her head when Bill asks if Roman knows about the impending raid. Evie appears in the doorway, asking why Nicki isn't down at the photo shoot. When she doesn't get an answer, she runs right off to tattle. Bill starts helping Nicki pack.
Moments later, Adaleen is pursuing Bill and Nicki out of the house as they rush out, flanked by Nicki's sisters and angrily insisting they stay for the photo. Apparently the photographer came all the way from Denver, probably because he's the only person in the Mountain Time Zone qualified to shoot three hundred Caucasians dressed all in white under direct sunlight and not have the picture come out looking like a nuclear detonation. Adaleen bitches at Nicki as she gets in the car, "One day you will realize the importance of family and won't it just be too late? Shame, shame, shame!" See? Again with the family lecture. Getting in the Gigantomobile his own self, Bill snaps at his second mother-in-law, "The state police are on their way here right now. You want to use that tongue? Use it on your son." For future reference, Bill, don't ever let Barb hear you saying that to Margene. As pissed as Adaleen is right now, she's no dummy, and she runs right to the loaded-up bleachers to warn Roman. Bill and Nicki tear off in a cloud of dust. "Look here," the photographer says to the assembled Creekers. Roman faces the camera with a look of resignation.
Driving along the paved road out of Juniper Creek, Bill's Gigantomobile passes a single oncoming police SUV with its sirens and flashers going. He checks the rearview just to make sure it isn't turning around and coming after him. Considering Alby beat the cops back to Juniper Creek by enough of a margin to give Nicki time to confront Roman, change clothes, and pack, Bill could probably outrun them if he really had to. He finally spares a look at his wife, who is staring out the passenger window, red-eyed and devastated. Bill sympathetically takes her hand, despite not knowing the half of it, and she symbolically rolls up her open window.
