    I agree with Ana, she does not fit in with the wives and was really disrupting the flow of the show. After three seasons I could understand the urge to want to incorporate a new character to mix things up but she just was not working out.



    This was a good episode to follow up on the big trial, although I was a little upset that there was no update on the Roman Grant situation. They are also wasting a little too much time showing stuff with the kids who really aren't that interesting.



    On a side note, I'm really starting to like Margene with the blonde hair.moreless

    A great episode of Big Love here, although it wasn't as intense or explosive as the beginning of the season, it was still very good an it brought us nothing but development. I really hope this is Ana's penultimate appearance or at least her last appearance because honestly, she really wasn't doing this show any favors. Seeing Nikki drunk was definitely the highlight of this episode. Blond Margene is starting to grow on me! Bill & Ana getting married only to get divorced in the end seemed way too rushed and we were missing the slow burning style this show usually has. I guess it's for the better since Ana will be written out soon, still married and divorced in one episode? Does that bother any one else? As for the kids, I enjoyed the scenes. Heather's possible lesbianism is showing here, and I guess Rhonda was right last season when she blackmailed Heather. Frankie's storyline was sad but I really enjoyed seeing Frankie punch Frank in the face. Sarah deciding to keep the baby was also great development. Interested to see how the "divorce" will affect the family. Hopefully the writers wont harp on this subject for too long, all I want to see from Ana at this point is to see her walk out of the Henrickson home... for good.moreless
