for a moment, I thought she was going to wail him with the carpet beater, which would have been awesome!

As it relates to JJ's vague version of what he saw outside the Big House, why would Wanda be particularly upset by Joey's actions? (Given her past misdeeds)

I don't think Wanda was upset by Joey's actions--she's probably worried about Joey being found out and turned in since he's the one person who cares for her.

I wonder if she'll try to kill JJ too That would be highly satisfying though, he is indeed so extremely creepy

I really wonder when Niki's past with JJ is going to come out in more detail.

I'm really disappointed in the direction the show has been going. It's to the point where I don't like any of them anymore.

I am loving the show this season. I got DH hooked on this show too and he loves it almost as much as I do! I can't wait to find out what happens this season with all the different things going on...Nicki not being in love with Bill anymore, Margie and her jewelery business, Bill wanting to come out to the public about being a Polygamist etc. I think it is going to be a great season!

Whoa! What was up with Ben and Margene? I was really hoping that was going to be left behind in the last season. That is taking the story line to a place I did not want it to go!

ITA. That whole thing is just too out there. I guess I can see how lines could get blurred in such a complex family situation but seriously--that's pretty darn blurry.

I was disappointed with the Ben/Margene thing. I don't like that they are playing Margene so desperate for affection that way. I was so enjoying Margene!

I have a lot of questions about last night's episode. I'm still mulling things over.

I hope we do get to see more of Sissy Spacek. Oh, Barb is gonna hate her!

My gut told me INSTANTLY that what he was referring to, that he has of hers that is soooo precious, was her virginity. which would make ME crazy, thats for dang sure!

I had a feeling something like this would happen this season, because during the recap of the previous season before the first show, they showed the scenes where margene was telling ben to get over his feelings for her.

Oh I think Barb is going to be a bit preoccupied this season.


ETA, I dont see the Margene thing as her being desperate at all. I agree with the blurry lines scenerio. And when he becamse the alpha male during the whole JJ thing, I think he changed in her eyes, became a MAN per se

Is anybody else totally hating Alby, but feeling so sorry for him at the same time? It's like he never any chance of ending up normal, growing up in Roman's shadow and under his thumb.

I'm wondering where the Sarah/meth-addict thing is going to go but I think I already know.

I want to see more of Sissy Spasek too!

I love the Nicky/Cara Lynn storyline. I hate JJ but I think he makes a compelling creepster (like he's taking the place of Frank as the gross creepy family member.)

I really feel bad for and simultaneously repulsed by Alby.

I agree that the Ben/Margie thing sucks. I hope they drop it and leave it alone, it's too irritating. I also REALLY don't like Ben so maybe that contributes.

Did anyone else notice that they had the new girl playing Teeny last night? They made her look just like old Teeny. I think that is weird- isn't she going to grow up ever?

I didn't get the fingernail thing, either - except that I've heard of fingernail loss as a side affect of chemo - which is weird, because they were talking about his wife being on chemo, not him.

I loved that show. I think next week will be great.

As for JJ and no finger nails, it may be due to incest and inbreeding.

What a great point! That kinda goes along with the revelation I had about JJ and Wanda.

I never realized how small Sissy Spacek is.

Nikki still anoys me, but I think that is why Chloe is so good at her character. You can never tell if shes lying or telling the truth, cuz with Nikki it all sounds the same.

I recently saw an episode of some documentary show (Secret Lives of Women, I think), where it was made clear that allegations of incest are decidedly an issue, especially in some of the smaller polygamist sects.

I think the theme of the new opening ties into Barb's fears when she was kicked out of the LDS church, and the whole way they're all kind of at odds and drifting without direction. The old opening showed them all together dining in the Celestial Kingdom in an idealized happily ever after. The new one shows them all floating around in the Outer Darkness, desperately trying to reach out for each other.

My guess? Maybe a child.

I think it's incest, just as someone else posted to suggest. Which casts some very creepy tones over his relationship with Nikki's daughter.

I feel more sorry for Alby at this point than I do for Nikki! I haven't watched the new episode yet, I haven't had time!

I think JJ is making her sick. I don't think she has cancer so much as she has super creepy murderous husband.

JJ's lack of fingernails: Maybe because he is administering the chemo and doesn't know what he is doing (obviously)? Sounds like he is managing all of her care. On the latest episode he told her he wants to replace her PICC and do a biopsy .

The Margene and Ben thing, I can totally see that, after all, he does seem to be the 'man' in her life when she needs someone to help/protect/support.

I do get sick of the business end, in a way. However, I think it just makes it all more 'real'.

Wow, that whole Margie/Ben thing better get resolved and not by sending Margie off the show so that she can have a big movie career instead... she is one of my faves!!!

Sissy Spacek is an awesome actress, I agree, I want more of her.

Alby creeps me out... I don't want more of him at all. However, JJ makes an awesome creepy guy. I am okay with him sticking around.

I really hope Nikki and her daughter come to some resolution and stay on the show. I like her daughter so far.

The Barb-Casino thing is bugging me, as well as the Bill-campaign thing, but I am the one who hates the business side of the show, so that is probably why.

Okay, here's some other random thoughts:

-Did anyone catch the long shots of the kids watching the movie with the men in black-face? What are your theories on why they were watching that? I think it's no accident that it was shown after the welfare cheat scenario scene. I think it is part social commentary and partly to show how totally clueless and out of touch the family really is.

-I think that JJ is about to become integral. I think that he is going to be the driving force in the next few episodes. I think the fingernails have many possibilities, one being that he has been brutally tortured (possibly Wanda too? Maybe she's a psychopath because of that?) OR some kind of incestuous breakaway sect involvement (possibility that he and Wanda have a child?) OR he is getting sick secondarily from the chemo.

Oh, and I 100% got the feeling that there was some sort of Munchaussen-by-proxy thing going on with him and the sick wife.

-I feel like the whole season is being set up to draw parallels between the Henrickson's and the Juniper Creek people. I think that the Bill-as-prophet storyline will be really important. I think that the writers are trying to get us to see how truly enmeshed in all the crazy compound stuff the family really is.

Of course these are just the workings of my sleep-deprived brain so I could be super off. Any thoughts?

-Did anyone catch the long shots of the kids watching the movie with the men in black-face? I caught it, and I know that everything is done for a reason when they put episodes together. I didn't try to find a reason behind it, but the whole scenerio really bugged me. What are your theories on why they were watching that?

OR some kind of incestuous breakaway sect involvement (possibility that he and Wanda have a child?) OR he is getting sick secondarily from the chemo. How can you get sick from administering Chemo. I am completely ignorant to chemo, and know nothing about it. HOWEVER, it did JUST occure to me that during that scnene, where margene is noticing his fingernails, Nikki makes a comment about hoping caroline wont end up like her father, getting sick at every little thing (Coleslaw) and he is eating only white rice during the entire scene.

Oh, and I 100% got the feeling that there was some sort of Munchaussen-by-proxy thing going on with him and the sick wife. I heard the reference to chaging out something and something about a biopsy, but my brain didnt register it all. What was he talking about changing out?

-I feel like the whole season is being set up to draw parallels between the Henrickson's and the Juniper Creek people. I think that the Bill-as-prophet storyline will be really important. I think that the writers are trying to get us to see how truly enmeshed in all the crazy compound stuff the family really is.

Did anyone notice that when Joey broke into Romans casket, for a brief second when they show it opening, it comes DOWN on his face. Wonder how badly that disfigured him? Broken nose perhaps? Sometimes I look for things where there really is nothing.

Of course these are just the workings of my sleep-deprived brain so I could be super off. Any thoughts?

Yeah, I thought so too, but still, that's desperate and way out of line. I really wish they hadn't gone there.

And about that and the fingernails, I thought maybe JJ was really the sick one, and he's just saying his wife is for some reason.

Yeah, like no way. He said he was changing her IV, PICC and doing a biopsy. While IV and PICC doesn't require surgery or anything, it has to be sterile, and you have to at least be a nurse to do it. I'm not sure what kinda biopsy he was talking about, but a lot of those are surgeries and requires general.
That was just stretching it.
