Back at the house, Nicki gloats, thinking this is all because "Margene couldn't cut it." Barb says it's not that, and tells Nicki about the old LDS friends who turned up at the convention. Nicki's all for letting Bill twist in the breeze, but Barb says, "It's worth a lot to us. To our family." And to Barb's self-image as the perennial rescuer and fixer, not to mention that of public wife. Not that she says that. Nicki appears horrified to hear that Barb is going. Nicki hurls herself into a high dudgeon, acting all offended at the way Bill's mistreating all of them. She storms out, yelling that she's not taking Bill's suits to the dry cleaners, neither.
Nicki's rage is all an act, of course, because the problem she's been dealing with is now solved. This means Nicki can host Wanda's party right there at home. I thought Chloë Sevigny's acting was a little clumsy just now; turns out it was just Nicki's acting. Which actually makes that the most impressive bit of acting I've seen from Chloë Sevigny, possibly ever. She's not even back inside her house before she's on the phone with Wanda to let her know that the Henrickson houses are now party central. "Of course I'm sure," she says. "I can do anything I want." Including relocating a party two hours down the road with less than one day's notice, apparently. Remind me to steal sixty thousand bucks some time.
