Over at the Thunderdome, Maxine is bragging about how eventually she’ll have the whole town here and some of the people now working here owe her from before. (And Barbie should recognize some of them from his collection duties.) So say someone comes in because they need eggs, and they've got batteries. They bet. If they win, they trade up. If not, Max wins. Barbie points out that people are already bartering around town, and Max says, "Yeah, that's for needs. In here, it's about vices." Of course, that's right after her example of someone coming in because they need eggs, that damnable vice. "You realize survival’s at stake," says Barbie, and Max is all, "Duh! Mine!" She says if she’s going to be trapped in "this hellhole" she might as well live as well as she can.
Elsewhere, Angie is still stomping around town with Norrie and Joe trailing her, urging her to level with them about what’s up. "I think Junior is the fourth hand," she says, surprising Joe and Norrie and absolutely no one else. She explains that Junior had a seizure at the tenth-grade dance. Joe thinks it can’t be Junior. His reasoning? "That guy weirds me out." Angie angrily asks if they think she’s happy about this, "after what he did to [her]," but of course she hasn’t revealed that to them, so Joe is all, "What does that mean?"
So she asks if she remembers how Joe couldn’t find her after the dome came down. You mean a few days ago? And when Joe wasn’t actually, you know, looking? Yeah, he remembers.
She fills them in on the kidnapping, and I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen anything as hilarious as Joe attempting to depict "filled with rage." He threatens to kill Junior, and Angie is all, "No, I’ll do it," and then Norrie shuts them up by saying, "…if he’s the fourth hand?" So the McAllister siblings manage to simmer their raging asses down. Norrie asks Angie if she’s sure about Junior’s seizure. She is, but there’s more: "I have to show you something," she says, and then she takes off, Joe and Norrie following. Or, since there’s probably at least a little urgency, you could just tell them right now?
Julia and Linda are over at the bank, which was apparently abandoned immediately by people when the dome came down, leaving money just lying around all over the place because they instantly knew that money was going to be no good. Meanwhile, other stores continued operating, and like YESTERDAY Angie was talking about keeping the Sweetbriar Rose going, and yet nobody at all thought, "Well, maybe I’ll just take some of these bundles of cash just lying around in case?" But Julia and Linda are already all, "Hey, remember money?" and Julia makes it all about her and says, "To think it was money that ruined my marriage and forced my husband to run off." Yeah, it was the money and not your husband or anything. While Linda actually looks for what they’re there for, Julia blathers on about how she knew deep down that something was wrong, but didn’t want to see it. Then they find the safe deposit room, and Linda needs to bust open the locked door with a fire extinguisher.
