Synopsis


The Golden Globe-nominated second season of HBO's celebrated polygamist drama opens two weeks after Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn) was quietly blackballed from a Utah Mother of the Year pageant by its embarrassed patrons. As a mortified Barb withdraws from her first-wife responsibilities to privately reexamine her place in a plural marriage, Bill (Bill Paxton) is determined to learn who betrayed the Henricksons. He also begins looking for a way to secure his family's financial well-being by pursuing an electronic-gambling enterprise. Although such a vice-ridden industry goes against his core beliefs, Bill takes a risk, believing the acquisition can be used as leverage in a battle between father-in-law Roman Grant (Harry Dean Stanton) and an even more outlaw polygamous sect led by the diabolical Hollis Greene (Luke Askew). Meanwhile, the Juniper Creek compound is awash in rumors of foul play and a struggle for power after the poisoning of Roman's son Alby (Matt Ross). Evidence points to Wanda (Melora Walters), the unstable wife of Bill's brother Joey (Shawn Doyle), as the culprit. In another scandal, Roman's teenage bride-to-be Rhonda (Daveigh Chase) flees Juniper Creek to hide with Bill's family, though her flight seems less in protest of her impending marriage to the elderly prophet than a clumsy, ill-advised publicity stunt. Also at the Henricksons, Bill and Barb's oldest child Sarah (Amanda Seyfried) grows disillusioned with her three-household home and strikes up an illicit romance with Scott (Aaron Paul), a man 10 years her senior. Meanwhile, Sarah's brother Ben (Douglas Smith) gives serious consideration to following in his father's conjugal footsteps. And those are certainly big shoes to fill as Bill mulls adding a fourth wife after he meets a waitress named Ana (Branka Katic). The idea is as aggressively championed by third wife Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin) as it is vehemently opposed by Barb and second wife Nicki (Chloë Sevigny). ~ Joe Friedrich

    A Great Show That Has Found Its Stride

    Word on the street is that, due to the writer's strike a few months ago, the airing of Season 3 of "Big Love" will be put off until fall, going out of pattern to its regular summer airings. It's great that they want to ensure that the show is top-quality for viewers, but what will fans do until then? Why not enjoy Season 2 on DVD? As great as Season 1 was, Season 2 really showed it at a creative high. So indulge in the box set (less expensive than Season 1's) to tide you over until the fall airing of the new season, and ponder as to how they will manage to top this fantastic season.
