Big Love Review: "Exorcism"

at . Comments

Big Love brought all the drama and left very little anticipation for the series finale on "Exorcism," as Alby became a wanted man, but that did not stop him from his one mission: kill Bill.

Trio of Wives

The feud between these two men has gone on since the beginning of this show and who did not expect it to end in a glorious showdown? They both knew that each wanted the other dead, but it surprised me to see Bill give away his perfect opportunity.

Even Nikki begged Bill to just go ahead and be done with it, but Bill did not shoot him. This action clearly proved that Bill is in his right mind and is not madly acting out. He probably realized that having Alby thrown in jail would cement to his followers the type of monster he really is.

The hardest character to understand is Nikki. She has always been a bit nutty, but never would I have thought she would say such horrible things to her daughter. Even the way she did it was beyond creepy. Poor Cara Lynn. She had to wake up in the middle of the night to find her mother waiting to make her feel worthless.

Yeah, so maybe Cara Lynn should not have fallen in love with such an old man, but I don't think Nikki should have gone through such extremes to keep her daughter away from Greg. Wouldn't he be thrown in jail anyway?

Speaking of jail time, what would the sister-wives do if Bill heads to jail? Barb clearly wanted them to start thinking and making plans, but how would their marriage survive such turmoil?

It was interesting that Nikki brought to light the comparison between Bill's relationship with Margene and what Cara Lynn was doing with her much older teacher. On one hand, both relationships are morally and legally wrong, yet Bill never knew Margene's real age. It would be hard to believe that if Bill did, he would not have kept it in his pants.

Am I the only one who found it odd that after all the attempted murders between these two that Lois and Frank are all of a sudden BFFs? So Lois went crazy. Why would Frank want to be her caretaker now? Don't they hate each other? What gives?

Rhonda made it clear to Ben that the sex meant nothing to her, yet she wanted to marry him regardless. She used her only chance to inform Heather of what transpired between her and Ben.

Naturally, Heather would not want anything more to do with Ben, but why on earth would he say he would take care of them both? Does this mean he also wanted to follow in his father's footsteps?

With only one more episode left, will we get the pleasure of a Sara cameo? And what ever happened to Bill's brother and his wife? Hopefully, all will go down in beautiful flames.
