DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
IVE always thought if I was going to kill someone I’d wait until they were in bed and just put a pillow over their face. Ideally they’d be in a coma, or seriously addled, the way Roman Grant was when Joey Henrickson smothered him at the end of the last series of Big Love.
Is he dead though? He looked it, but Roman’s looked half-dead for the past three seasons. And as one of his wives points out tonight, he plans on living till he’s 126. It’ll be a bit of a shame if Harry Dean Stanton’s no longer on this show, child-molesting murderer that he is. Or not him obviously, his character.
He’s fantastic. Creepy and hideous, sure, but even just having him there, walking around, adds value. I love his face, his look, and I love his singing voice too.
Roman’s been missing for six weeks when this episode starts tonight. For such a close — incestuous — family, nobody seems overly concerned.
They’re all criminals of one sort or another, so there’s that. Plus Bill Henrickson and his three wives — one of whom is Roman’s daughter, remember — are caught up with the opening of his casino, only three days away.
