Big Love came back last night, and it has been two weeks since Barb got ousted as a polygamist. She's handling it in the expected way, by doing crossword puzzles and lots of them. I find it hard to pity her much since the only reason she got ousted, endangering the whole family in the process, is because she wanted a little parade for her parenting skills. F.Y.I., Barbie, that's called pride, and it's one of the seven deadly sins. Nicki, in the face of Barb's little breakdown, is her usual charming self, cutting Margene down to size at every opportunity. Apparently despite the fact that Margene is 21-years-old and a mother of two children with a third on the way, Nicki still considers her incapable of shopping or cooking for the family. No wonder Margene hides her insecurity about as well as Kate Moss hides her coke habit. Bill thinks Carl and Pam, the neighbors, might be responsible for ousting Barb. He wants to go to dinner at their house with Barb to investigate, and if necessary, smooth things over. Barb refuses, possibly because there are crossword puzzles to be done, but Bill tells her she has no choice. Barb does not take well to his tone and flees to the station wagon in the driveway. After a few deep breaths and a wistful last glance at the house, Barb takes off.
