Big Love starts Jan. 10th! - Page 14

post #261 of 288
What I don't get is that it's not like he actually married the three women (well, technically 4 if you count Anna). He is legally only married to Barb. He may consider himself spiritually married to the others but in the eyes of the law, he has one legal wife and a couple girlfriends. Nothing illegal there.

I think Bill is a complete idiot. And the acting when Bill got Nikki out of they were laying in the hall was painful.

Why the heck did Margie do it? Why did Barb? Why were they standing up there when they didn't believe in it at all? I hate that they have no backbones.

In Utah, living as if you are married to more than one spouse is illegal. That's how they define illegal polygamy there. So stating publicly that he has more than one wife is confessing to a crime. Not that it matters whether it's a crime or not in terms of his political and business careers - he's toast IRL. He'd be recalled, and his businesses would be boycotted. I can't figure out why they all went up there with him, either.

Wowzers. This whole season felt like a train wreck. I couldn't stop watching but it stressed me out!

I half expected them to decide not to come out after the election. None of them looked pleased to stand up there.
I can't believe JJ and his son were implanting inbred embryos in everyone. And ew, his daughter's egg and his sperm?!!!
Is Adaleen going to have the baby even though it might have medical issues and even though it's not biologically hers?
post #264 of 288
Jeri - I didn't know that!

And, just another thought, how exactly did Adaleen get pregnant? Doesn't artificial insemination require a sedative and medical procedure? Did she have no recollection of being put out?

And you say its around 18 months until the season starts again???

It was a horrible cliffhanger lol but not too bad. I think they are stupid though, for going on stage, and looking so negative and sad. Only Margene tried to smile and keep up apearances.

Does she really have feelings for Goran or?

Favorite line Nikki: "Wanda, are you a zebra?" and then "I don't want one of your big headed babies. I probably wouldn't even be able to deliver it."

and lastly "I don't want to hear your GD testimony." HAHA!

And won't Margene be arrested for fraud for her marriage to Goren?

What did you think of the red, white and blue outfits at the end??

Oh, and this is a nice article of the creators talking about the season finale and what's next:

This is also very eye opening explaining stuff behind the speeches in the last episode:

Actually watching inside the episode for this season has explained a lot. Worth watching.

The comments by viewers at the bottom of the article are pretty spot on.

oh and I just have to say I'm completely disgusted with what the creators and writers of the show has done to the characters. At this point, it's hard to believe they even like any of their characters at all.

I did IVF for my 1st...yes you are completely put under during the egg retrieval...so the daughter had to put out and Wanda had to put out in order to get their eggs...it is considered a surgical procedure. The embryo transfer is not surgical and you are not knocked out...it is just like any other pap smear I'm guessing as far as the storyline would go, Adeline was probably knocked out/drugged for both. The daughter was told she was having a tonsillectomy.

Not only did I notice the red/white,blue dresses...but as you went from Barb to Nikki to Margene...they got shorter and shorter and shorter.

I'm wondering how after days of being drugged up, how did Adeline have the energy to lasso up two people?

The episode didn't bother me as much as some of you guys here b/c I am glad some story lines are finally done and not going to drag out anymore.

Well I'm off to cancel my HBO cable package for the next 18m...back to regular TV

Not only did I see notice the red white and blue dresses, but I had already noticed that this could be the "look" the writers go for while all the wives were in the dressing room. If you ask me, they should have all wore black, because they all looked like they were dying.

The whole JJ storyline REALLY pissed me OFF!! All season long, they had hinted at something sinister about him here and there, but only in vague passerby. Only until the LAST EPI OF THE SEASON do they start this whole puzzle with the children all being to genetically llinked, but yet Bill cant find any discrepancies in the marraige documents. DUH, and then DON DON DOOOOOOOOOON, JJ is implanting incenstious embryos into unsuspecting, and maybe some suspecting, women! How off the freaking wall is this show gonna get?

Because the whole Bill running for office so they can live out in the open as polygmaists? Did NO ONE consider how this would effect the children who are attending public school?

And Im sorry, but marylinn just annoys me. AND THAT HAIR!!!! CUT YOUR FREAKING BANGS ALREADY!

I didn't even notice the dresses!! Just that they looked good in what they were wearing! I liked Nikki's hair!

yeah, the whole JJ thing was totally out there! It all seemed quite implausible and the acting was over the top. I agree about Adaleen being strong enough to knock people out and grab Nikki and set the house on fire after being knocked out on medication?

And about the implications for Margene- they made an obvious point of saying that there could be prison time for faking a marriage. Then they go public with her "marriage" to Bill. And now apparently she may be entering a 3-way marriage with Ana and Goran, and Ana seems just fine with it! Yet she stands with Bill and the wives publicly. It's all so confusing! I was half wondering if Ana and Goran and the baby will just join onto the Henrickson clan!

Why was Bill saying a limo would show up and take them back to the house? Why was he so convinced they'd be applauded after their admission?

That scene with Marilyn at the end was intense!

Good to see Don again, that he didn't just disappear...

K, first off, Does there have to be a murder every season? As far as I know, no one in my family has ever murdered anyone, and we have a pretty messed up family. Yet, the Henricksons and co murder someone every season lol!


Secondly, the JJ thing got way to out of hand. Which is too bad, cuz I thought it had potential for being an interesting storyline.

Thirdly, I have no idea whatsoever how they are going to get out of this situation successfully... I am thinking the show is going to end after the fifth season. Or not be renewed. Or they will have to move from Utah, which wouldn't really work with his political career lol.

I didn't even realize Margene had a daughter... didn't he says Mom of two sons and a daughter for her?

You know what I want to happen? I want the fifth season to forget juniper creek, forget politics, forget murder, and focus on the rotation. Day to Day or Week to week? Also, focus on how the kids deal with being outted polygamists. I would like to see Ben start dating... and see how that turns out. Sitcommy storylines. That is what I want lol.
post #273 of 288
This was a great season although so much happened at once. I liked that Bill acknowledged Carol-Lynn as his daughter but outing himself as a polygamist? Where on earth can the show go from here? Bill being locked up and losing his Home Plus business? The writers have a heck of a lot ahead of them for the next season. Bill could go to jail for tax evasion. I mean so much is happening here. I know this would be silly but I kind of hope his big speech is imagined and not something he actually did. It just won't work.

She has the two little boys and then just had the baby girl (Nan I think her name is) like a season or so ago (born during the break between seasons).

THANKS for making me finally understand what he meant when he said "Two boys and a girl" about Nickis children lol. I have been thinking and thinking how on earth I missed out on her having more kids lol.

I just knew Adeline would come charging back (in general, not from the drugging) and kick JJ's butt one way or other.

Count me in as thinking HBO is cruel to take so long between seasons.

Nikki's sudden and extreme transformation has my head spinning.

For that matter, many things about this season have my head spinning.

I wish they would have shown how she was able to tie JJ and the sister wife up like that. I know he had the scissor in his back but...

Any predictions as to what might happen in the between season time and next season?

Well, I hope it gets canceled at this point. This season was horrible.
post #280 of 288
I read it's already been picked up for next season.

I think it would be great if they end up being harassed so much that they flee to Juniper Creek. It would be interesting to see them living there.
