I don’t have HBO but I’ve watched the first season on DVD and seen a few episodes this season. I may have missed something though: why did Bill marry Nicky?
I know that when Barb got cancer he took her back to Juniper Creek and Nicky nursed her, and it was agreed that when she died he would marry Nicky to be mother to his kids. BUT,
1- Why on Earth did he go back to Juniper Creek? There’s no hospital there and he was expelled from the place.
2- Why did he still marry her when Barb lived? I’d have thought that a member of Roman’s family would be the last person he’d want to become involved with.
Has it ever explained the above?
-Alby’s faked seizure with the gay guy- has there been any follow-up on that this season?
-Bill’s father Frank has several other wives, but has it mentioned whether or not he has kids with them? The implication (when they were expelled) were that Bill and Joey are his only kids (Joey/Wanda were expelled when Frank and the wives were but no other kids came with them). I also wondered this when Ernest Holloway (the old man whose shares Bill bought) and his wives left the compound- if he had that many wives, wouldn’t it stand to reason he has many children he has to worry about leaving behind? That’s the whole point of polygamy, after all.)
-Has it ever explored (this season) the Embry’s church? Obviously it’s not as backwards as Juniper Creek and it would seem to give the Henricksens a much needed place to socialize. Certainly the Embrys are good friends and like-minded, so it would seem that their church would be accepting of the Henricksens.
-Does anybody else think the series is leading to Bill returning to/taking over Juniper Creek as the Prophet?
Thanks for any answers.
