Margene tells Bill about her marrying Ana’s fiancé. He freaks out and Marilyn ends up seeing Margene kiss Bill. Margene tells Bill that she is doing this for his sake, but he believes she is doing this to show that she really is not apart of their polygamist lifestyle when the news leaks out. 

At the board meeting, Bill confronts Marilyn about her cahoots with the Evangelicals.  She ends up quitting.  Marilyn goes to visit Margene and Margene let it slip that she knew Bill before she let on.  The next day, Marilyn comes back and confronts Bill in front of Barb that he is having an affair with Margene.
