    The first really weak episode of Big Love in the entire series. This wasn't a bad episode of Big Love by any standard, but just every episode before this has been just way better. Margene's mother coming to visit was a bit of a hit & miss. She brought down all the scenes. Scenes that were supposed to be enjoyable because of Nikki & Margene's fighting, but they weren't.

    Barb at the compound was just as uninteresting. What did she really do? Helped Joey & Wanda? With what exactly? All she was asked to do was to drop Wanda off from the mental hospital. Other than the confrontation between Barb & Roman, this plot was really nothing special. However Scott telling Bill that Alby has been following Sarah, an unexpected great scene.

    So overall, one weak plot, one weak guest appearance and you've got yourself a weak episode of Big Love, regardless of how good some of the characters remained to be (Nikki, Marge). The arc with the other compound: not really in to it yet. Maybe a couple episodes of development will change my mind.
