Episode Info

Bill (Bill Paxton) has a dream in which he's being chased, and suspects it might be a revelation. There's tension between Nicki (Chloë Sevigny) and Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn) when Barb asks Nicki to take care of Teenie's (Jolean Wejbe) costume for a school play about the upcoming lunar eclipse, and Nicki, claiming that she has a family emergency, hands the job off to Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin), with predictably disastrous results. Nicki is facing a crippling amount of credit-card debt, and sneaks into the city to get a bit of help from Roman (Harry Dean Stanton). In desperation, she even calls Suze Orman for advice. Bill and Don (Joel McKinnon Miller) check out a promising site for a third Home Plus store, but Don is worried about Roman because he's served them with legal papers demanding to audit their books. Sarah (Amanda Seyfried) gives Heather (Tina Majorino) her version of why her parents decided to become polygamists after Barb survived cancer. "She loves my dad too much," Sarah says, "and was afraid of losing him." Donna (Lyndsy Fonseca) invites Sarah to a party at the local college. Much to Heather's chagrin, Sarah decides to go. On a hunting trip with Ben (Douglas Smith), Don, and Jason (Kyle Gallner), Bill makes a major decision about his dealings with Roman.
