Bill Henrickson works hard and plays by the rules. All he wants in return is a happy, secure, normal life for his family. Is that too much to ask? Maybe so. For a polygamist like Bill, the American Dream comes with strings attached. HBO presents Season Two of this hit drama series that continues the story of this polygamist businessman (played by Bill Paxton) who lives in suburban Salt Lake City with his three wives and seven children. In Season Two, Bill—who owns two hardware superstores—is facing a myriad of personal and professional crises brought on by the exposure of First Wife Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn) as a polygamist during a high-profile ceremony in Season One. Bill’s other wives, Nicki (Chloë Sevigny) and Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin), pick up the slack as Barb languishes in a melancholy funk, leaving Bill to assess the damage the scandal has caused—and to track down the villain responsible for them being outed.

Continuing to track suspects, Bill makes dinner plans with neighbors Carl and Pam Martin, but Barb wants no part in the evening.
