As he walks across the lawn back to his car, he's on the phone with Alby. From the shotgun seat of a Hummer traveling down the road (to where, one wonders?), Alby pleads ignorance of Joey and his family's whereabouts. Bill orders Alby to find them, and also to quit talking to Nicki while he's at it. "Your UEB seat is hanging by a thread," he warns. Alby hangs up, totally intimidated. Not.
Bill reaches his car, where he at least left the window open for Margene so she wouldn't get cooked alive in there. She asks if everything is okay, and says they have to leave now if they're going to make it to dinner. Bill says he has to stay. "What's the emergency?" Margene asks. Bill answers, "It's her mother's wedding," like that explains everything. He offers to let her take the car and go without him, and ignores her angry protests as he dashes back to the house, promising to be back ASAP. She just sits and watches him go in frustration. What, did he lock the doors from the outside?
Toilet's-eye-view of Nicki scrubbing her commode, while Wayne and Raymond watch the operation with an inordinate amount of interest. And then Alby's in the doorway behind them. I think I just figured out where he was headed in his Humvee in his previous scene. His voice cracked and shaking with emotion, he tells Nicki, "You told. I asked you not to tell and you told." Nicki leaves the kids to finish the toilet-scrubbing -- they already had rubber gloves of their own on, so they were clearly ready to take over anyway -- and Alby follows her through the house, telling her that Bill tried to kill Roman to get Weber Gaming, and now Nicki's living off the profits. Nicki doesn't believe a word of it. "Papa's dying, Nicki," Alby says. Gosh, how can he be so sure? "His lungs are filling. It's a matter of days before he is beckoned to the celestial kingdom, so prepare yourself." Nicki doesn't seem unaffected by this news, but she still doesn't believe what Alby's telling her about Bill. Alby just says that if she wants to come back home -- and that's kind of a big "if" -- it has to be tonight. "Vengeance will rain down on this family," he warns. "If you don't, I have to wash my hands of you, Nicollete." Pretty vivid imagery to use on someone he interrupted while she was cleaning a toilet.
