And when Wanda said "You promised" when he said Adaleen was pregnant.
I don't remember the mention of "this one" surviving pertaining to wandas children. refresh my memory.

But the rest of your theory makes sense, because of the very first comment JJ made to wanda during their first encounter after she came back from Mexico with joey, about him having something precious of hers. Back then I was thinking virginity, but now, it seems even more sinister.

And the theory another PP had about JJ being excommunicated also makes sense, since he doesnt seem to care that Joey murdered Roman, just wanted to use it as leverage.

I thought that Wanda had experienced some SIDs incidents, which in the past they hinted she might have been responsible for due to her mental illness?

Back when she delivered her baby I believe it was Bill's Mom??? I'd have to go back and watch... but she said something like "this one's gonna live" or something. I don't want to misquote. And then later Bill and Joey? Or Bill and his Mom talk about the first baby dying.

And the excommunication I don't think is a theory. Censuring means excommunication or big trouble and consequences. So her finding proof that the Prophet was going to bring him back for that means he would of been toast.

I hope they bring *something* to a resolution, but with only one episode left, I'm not too hopeful!
I completely agree. My head is always spinning and left with too many questions after EVERY episode.

I could not stop Laughing. I loved that scene it was the best.

And I just want to say that the way this show in particular films and the time between seasons is TOO LONG. Why do they take so long? I mean this is a highly rated show and if I remember correctly, other HBO series never took this long to get out. I didn't have cable for five months and I was able to catch up on season two before season three. It's just crazy.

Can't wait for the next episode though!

And is Hollis dead? Why is Joey still in Mexico? (other than his admitting he murdered Roman) And who is he with in Mexico?

I don't know its just so creepy!

And then another theory about the no fingernails that I think was mentioned on here was from inbreeding and that JJ and Wanda's parents are actually brother and sister which is kinda alluded to when she calls Adaleen a mongrel.
Oooh, you may be on to something here. That's just creepy.

IME, HBO is just like that (Six Feet Under and Sopranos come to mind). Big gap between seasons, then a fair amount of time having gone by. I totally thought that Margene would be pregnant at the beginning of this season (I am dying to see a Big Love birth!).

I am a little bitter that the seasons keep getting shorter and shorter. What happened to 12 or 13 episodes?

I do so much better with HBO on dvd! I can watch the episodes as soon as I can get my hands on the netflix envelope!

Speaking of Margene and pregnancy. Did I totally miss Nell's birth or was it just not covered? Maybe it was between seasons? I can't really remember when it happened, but one episode she's pregnant and barely showing and the next she has a non-newborn baby.

(I watched all the seasons together in the weeks leading up to this season so I don't really remember when this season started in terms of storylines.)

Margene was pregnant at the end of one season, and then last season Nell was here, seemingly a few months old. I know, I'd love to see how they welcome a new family member!

Tomorrow better be GOOD and tie up some loose ends!!!!

18 months is standard for HBO. True Blood is about 12 months, though, which is lightning-speed for them. The problem is that all the actors get big heads and make demands and delay production and quit (like Sarah leaving this season.)

Oh wow was that episode (especially the end) painful to watch for anyone else?

I felt ridiculously uncomfortable as Bill was calling them up to the stage.

And the J.J. having the women implanted with the embryos (is that what he was doing? I just remember them mentioning Carol-lynn and then that what he was doing technically wasn't incest).

It was painful in it's stupidity.

Although the highlight for me was when Bill said "we jumped the track". Truer words have never been said by a character in this show, the only problem was that writers are the ones that jumped the track ages ago.

How stupid and inconsistent must they make these characters?

Who gets a paternity test in the middle of an election campaign?

The whole inbreeding thing was just so ridiculous as was Nikki's ever trusting JJs son.

And Ana, right all of sudden she is all, oh hey Margene it's all good that you are hot for my fiance we all love each other, after the way she felt about polygamy last season. Uh huh, right.

And even Bill would have realized that by having Margene stand up in front of the cameras as his wife while she is married to Goran is setting Margene up for going to prison and Goran being deported and Ana leaving the country to be with him, so he loses access to his child.

I could go on and on but I won't.

Hate to say it, but yeah.

First Barb finally gets some nerve, rats out the family to the press and tells Bill that she doesn't need him anymore, then she hops up on stage with the whole family? And they're all wearing red, white and blue?

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?

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:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-a...es-big-finale/

This is also very eye opening explaining stuff behind the speeches in the last episode:
http://www.hbo.com/big-love/episodes...-episode.html/

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...
