    Block Party

    Bill tries to convince Jerry Flute, a native-American businessman, to partner with him in a Mormon-friendly casino outside of Salt Lake City, and finds a surprisingly effective ally in Margene. With Roman in jail and incensed at Alby for betraying him, Nicki decides to temp at the DA's office to hunt down state's evidence for Adeleen. After learning she may have a cancer recurrence, Barb warms to the idea of Ana joining the family, though the waitress is resistant to the family's overtures. Meanwhile, Frank's teenaged son Frankie ends up on Bill's doorstep after his father throws him to the curb. Sarah shatters Heather's dream of attending the same local college. Roughed up in a bathroom, Alby becomes suspicious of Bill and, later, Adeleen. An annual block party becomes the battleground for Bill to defend the family against neighborhood gossip, and for Nicki to defend her lifestyle as the daughter of Roman Grant.
