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.
So after he's gone, Nicki calls Margene for help and asks her where she is. "Trapped in this stupid car like a dog," Margene complains into her cell phone. While frantically trying to get the four younger boys ready to go, Nicki tells Margene to get Bill on the phone, but Margene says she can't. And here's why it's a bad idea to strand Margene in a car indefinitely with nothing for her to do but think about stuff: "Barb's decided it's time to check out of the family, and she's taking the kids with her." Margene's about to go in and tell Barb off, then, and Nicki tells her to sit tight, again asking where she is. "Her mom's big-ass wedding," Margene bitches. "Bill stuck me in the car for over an hour!" Nicki tells Margene not to move, and bustles the kids out the door, snapping, "Get the little one!" Oh, come on, Nicki, they have names. It's Aaron, not "the little one." Or maybe Raymond. I get them confused sometimes.
