Big Love : "Oh, Pioneers" SEASON FINALE 8/26/07



Pllot Summary :
Spoiler:
Foiled by Alby in his attempt to gain UEB support, Bill resorts to a new tack to try to bring down his nemeses. Preparing for the festivities surrounding Salt Lake City's Pioneer Week parade, the Henricksons are rocked by the appearance of an unexpected guest. Margene comes clean to Ana about her relationship with "Phil" and then takes up her cause with her sisterwives--and Bill. Sarah and Heather attempt to get Ben to change directions; Bill ignores Lois's pleas to take a leadership role at Juniper Creek; Margene lobbies for more control in the family, and in her life; Barb sets Pam straight. After Bill makes his end move in the game to control Weber Gaming, Alby shocks Roman with a power play of his own. (TVMA) (AC,AL)


It's been a great season. Those previous 11 episodes really flew by quickly!

Most of these characters are annoying me now....I love this show! Lois is a riot, her character's quirkiness is always good for a laugh out loud moment.

Bill definitely grew some balls. It grew on me...i thought the previous seasons were inconsistent, but now it is pretty solid. Alby is definitely one of the creepiest characters on tv....I don't know, he just has this 'look'. I loved him in "American Psycho".

didn't see that coming.

Loved Nikki with the Razor.
Loved Barb growing a pair.
Surprised that Albie let the Sheriff on the compound to arrest his dad.
Bill is a little naive if he thinks sending Joey back with Roman was the way to go.

Interesting to see Lois behind all the poisonings.

Bill sending Roman back to the compound with Joey was not the problem. Nikki calling Alby to let him know was the dumb part. I can't wait to see what will happen next season. Anyone know when it will start back up?

Yeah, so did Nikki fuck everything up by calling Alby to gloat? What an idiot.

And it may be sort of a cliff-hanger, but at least it's not the kind that stops in middle of a scene (I'm looking at you, Weeds...).

So that wasn't just the Juniper police arresting Roman?

Does Alby have any leverage over Bill to give Weber back now though?

I thought things seemed to end just well enough in case the show isn't renewed...

I really enjoyed S1, but this season was tough to watch. I don't konw what it was, but I just couldn't get into it. I found myself trailing off and losing interest at points. If there is a S3, I hope it will pick back up.

You're definitely in the minority there. I thought S1 was great, but S2 was even better. It was a helluva season.

Yeah, I know I'm in the minority, and I can't pinpoint it, either. I may have to go back and watch things over. My wife loves the show, and that's the only reason I hung around. And there's been no mention of Sarah's sex scene yet...

It was renewed for a 3rd season a long time ago, wasn't it?

I have no idea...I'm just speculating. I can't ever keep up w/ the HBO shows.

As much as almost everyone was pissing me off, this finale made me like most all of them again. Love Barb. Daughter ends up with greasy skin guy....that will make a nice regret for her. Albi is a great enemy, but I still see this blowing up on him. He may have the council, but he won't after they find out what he did to the prophet.

Great episode and I too felt less frustrated with the majority of the characters at the end of tonight's episode.

Nikki's dim-witted call to Alby all for the sake of gloating was bound to happen....their characters are a classic case of sibling rivalry gone on way too long, they both needed more attention as children

I'm surprised the writers didn't have Barb leave Bill, with the kids in tow...not only did they have her stay, but to have her change her stance completely and agree to join the board at Weeber Gaming. What was that?

Ana is going to cause some serious heartburn for Barb next year, that was quite obvious.

And poor Sarah, that greasy boyfriend of hers caught a lucky break....that has regret written all over it.

Roman will crush Alby, that will be a joy to watch. To go from crumb-snatcher to head of Juniper Creek in the span of a few episodes, he'll come crashing down...that smirk will be his undoing.

Great season, I enjoyed Season 1 more as I was so intrigued by how I could enjoy a show with such themes (only a show on HBO could deliver like this) and Barb was truly amazing last season. Every single character made it a challenge to care about anyone this season, but I kept coming back and will do the same next year.

After a very enjoyable season 1, they came out and wrote what will go down as a nearly perfect season of television in season 2. This show is a clinic of excellent writing.

Hell, remember she was the one who outed Bill to Alby about Weeber.

I have been enjoying this show a lot. I am really looking forward to Season 3! I thought the season finale was quite good, BUT I wish the season had been longer.
