This season has been pretty good overall, but this episode was just aort of there. This was more about setting the stage for the rest of the year than offering up any new revelations or story arc advances. Sometimes Big Love has these filler episodes, and that is just par for the course when you are a fan of this show.
The HBO drama never has a bad episode, as this definitely wasn't bad, but coming off last week's episode, was a disappointment. Let us hope that they can respond next week and focus on something other than Bill's campaign.
