Family tree

Plot

The series revolves around Bill Henrickson, his three wives (Barb, first/legal wife; Nicki, second wife; and Margene, third wife) and their (combined) eight children. Henrickson lives with his family in three neighboring houses in Sandy, Utahmarker, a suburb of Salt Lake Citymarker.

Season 1

Season 1 introduces the main characters and revolves around the family's struggles to live their polygamous lifestyle while keeping it a secret from the outside world. While Bill goes about expanding his chain of home improvement stores ("Henrickson’s Home Plus"), he struggles to balance his three wives and his strained relationship with Nicki's father, Church prophet Roman Grant. From his compound on Juniper Creek, Roman seeks to gain a greater share of the profits from Bill's business ventures. Bill, who is resentful towards Roman for expelling him from Juniper Creek as a teenager, opposes this, and joins with his brother Joey, a former NFL player who returned to Juniper Creek after drug addiction, to gain a seat on the Church's board of directors in order to undercut Roman's considerable influence and to maintain a level of autonomy from his controlling grasp.

Bill's first wife, Barb, is shown to be the anchor for the plural Henrickson family, but as the show progresses, it is revealed that Barb has mixed feelings about the concept of polygamy, and only her love for Bill makes her stay. Meanwhile, second wife Nicki (daughter of Roman) struggles to fit in with modern life outside the compound and her own desire for power within the family dynamic. Nicki compensates for her isolation by developing an addiction to shopping, leading her to accumulate $60,000 of debt in credit card charges. Third wife Margene, 23 years old, struggles to find her place within the family, as both Barb and Nicki look down upon her due to her youth and fertility.

Most of season one focuses on the family's struggle to keep their secret from their friends, neighbors, and coworkers. However, things come to a head when Barb is nominated for a "Mother of the Year" Award, resulting in her and Bill's being outed as a polygamist couple. Meanwhile, Joey's mentally unstable wife, Wanda, poisons Alby Grant (Roman's son and chief minion) when Alby discovers that Bill is using Joey as a pawn in his scheme to undermine Roman's power within the Church, and threatens the two.

Season 2

Season 2 picks up two weeks after the end of season one, as Barb temporarily leaves home and then returns. Though the outing does not damage the family's reputation or the Henrickson business, it causes Bill to decide to take steps to ensure his family's financial security by trying to buy an electronic gambling company called Weber Gaming.

The second season also expands upon the political battles at Juniper Creek. When Roman and his wife inform Alby that they are willing to allow Wanda and Joey to get away with their attempt on his life in exchange for using them as leverage against Bill, Alby alerts outside authorities, who arrest Joey (who claims credit for poisoning Alby in order to protect Wanda), which ultimately leads to a raid of the compound.
Meanwhile, Roman's newest intended bride, 15-year-old Rhonda Volmer, secretly leaves the compound to live with the Henricksons. The family is quick to take Rhonda in, thinking that she is an innocent trying to escape being forced to marry the elderly Roman. However, it is quickly revealed that Rhonda is a pathological liar and sociopath who left the compound only to exploit Roman's legal troubles in order to get media coverage for her story in the newspaper and on TV.

Rhonda's departure and Alby's actions lead to Bill's manipulating Roman and the Greenes (a renegade polygamist sect that operates on the fringes of society) against each other in order to claim Weber Gaming. Roman is shot by the Greenes when the police finally try to arrest the Greenes, forcing them to flee. With Roman hospitalized, Alby quickly seizes power, and—-thanks to Rhonda's statements to the police—-Roman is arrested by the police for violating the Mann Act. Alby's power is ultimately secured when he forces his mother to flee Juniper Creek (after realizing that she planned to use him as a puppet to secure her own power base at Juniper Creek) and by Bill's refusal to challenge Alby's claim of prophethood in order to claim the position for himself.

On the home front, Nicki struggles with Bill's decision to send their son to a Catholic school (which is far enough out of the way for Bill to claim Nicki as his sole wife) while Margene and Barb wage war against each other for the "head wife" position. This is complicated when Margene befriends Ana, a Serbian waitress and dental hygienist, after witnessing Bill flirting with her at a diner. Margene encourages Bill to bring Ana into the family as a fourth wife in order to gain an ally against Barb and Nicki.

Barb, after a tearful reunion with her estranged mother and a pep talk with Roman's wife, reasserts herself as first wife by outing the family as polygamist to her nosy neighbors and informing Bill that she will finally leave him once and for all if he tries to bring a fourth wife into the family.

Meanwhile, Sarah is seeking help in dealing with her family's lifestyle through a support group for ex-Mormons, leading to her falling for a man ten years her senior. While Sarah ultimately gives up her virginity to her new boyfriend (mainly to spite her father, who is indifferent towards Sarah's growing disdain for him and polygamy), Ben gives himself over to his father's views on polygamy. At the close of the season, Ben is dating twin girls from Juniper Creek whose goal is to marry one man between them, causing Barb to consider sending him away to live with her nonpolygamist mother.

Season 3

In the third season of Big Love, Bill pursues Ana, a waitress he met in season two, despite his pledge to Barb to end the affair. Barb warms to the idea after she spends time with Ana, and sees in her a confidante without Margene's childishness or Nicki's manipulativeness. After Barb agrees to allow Bill to marry her, Ana finds herself chafing at Bill's authoritarianism and sees her presence causing Nicki, Barb, and Margene to fight repeatedly. At the end of season 3, Ana "divorces" herself from the family, citing her inability to deal with the polygamist lifestyle and her fear that her staying in the marriage would destroy the already fragile bonds among Bill's three wives.

Another focus in season 3 is on Roman Grant's trial, as Adaleen forces Nicki to infiltrate the prosecution's office building as a clerical worker (using Margene's name) to uncover the identities of the chief witnesses against Roman. The key witness is Joey's intended second wife Kathy, who Roman forced to marry when she was only 16. Two of the witnesses are intimidated into not testifying while Rhonda (who now seeks to sue Roman and Juniper Creek in civil court) is given $30,000 by Adaleen and ordered to flee town after Adaleen lies to her about Roman no longer loving her. Kathy's testimony is negated by her twin sister Jodeen, who lies on the stand to protect her son and tells the court that Kathy was married at age 18 and not 16. She argues that due to the Juniper Creek policy of not celebrating birthdays, Kathy is "unaware" of her true age. Roman is acquitted and Nicki who the audience discovers was forcibly married off at 14 to an older man when her picture is seen in one of Roman's "Joy Books" shoves her father down a flight of stairs in an unsuccessful attempt to kill him. Nicki's employment leads to a flirtation with the prosecutor Ray Henry (Chip Esten), who is prosecuting her father, but he does not know her true identity.

Meanwhile, Sarah is preparing to leave home for college at Arizona State when she discovers that she is pregnant. She tells Ben and Heather, but not Scott, the 28-year old father, or her parents. At first she plans to give her child up for adoption, but ultimately she decides to keep it. However, while on a family vacation, Barb finds Nicki's birth control pills and mistakenly thinks they belong to Sarah. Barb's tirade against her daughter leads to Nicki admitting that the birth control pills are hers, having purposely been on the pill for years while lying to Barb and Bill about wanting additional children. The commotion of Barb's outburst leads to Sarah's miscarriage the next day, with Nicki convincing Sarah to come clean about the pregnancy and miscarriage afterwards. While Bill attempts to be supportive of Sarah, by buying her a new car and refusing to judge her decision to be sexually active, Barb's relationship with Sarah is severely damaged as Barb attempts to bully Sarah into becoming more involved with the family in light of her promiscuity and its consequences. Sarah decides not to attend college, much to the dismay of Heather, who changed her future plans to attend the University of Utah to attend Arizona State to help Sarah with the baby.

Joey has announced to Bill that he, Kathy, and Wanda are getting married, and he asks Bill to seal them. Furious at Roman's acquittal, Kathy has been gathering resistance on the Juniper Creek compound against Roman, threatening his waning authority within the compound (due to Alby consolidating his own power base). Roman has Kathy kidnapped hours before her wedding in order to force her to marry rival Hollis Greene, who is revealed to be Roman's brother-in-law and who will be immediately shipped off to Mexico, where Kathy will never see Joey or Wanda again. After stabbing Hollis's wife Selma with a pitchfork, Kathy steals a pickup truck and tries to flee. Roman forcibly rams her vehicle from behind and it plows into an electrical pole. Due to the force of the collision and to Kathy's braid being caught in the door, her neck is broken by whiplash and she is killed instantly. Her body is subsequently dumped in a ravine and her death staged to look like an accidental fall. At the funeral a few days later, Joey accuses Roman of murdering his intended wife. Joey later confronts Adaleen in her hotel room and tries to coerce a confession out of her about what she knows.

While Nicki becomes entangled with her boss, due to Ray's attraction to "Margene", Bill attempts to forge an alliance to bring down Roman for his part in Kathy's death. Margene, furious that Nicki is continuing to see Ray in spite of promising to break up their relationship, ultimately outs Nicki and Bill, leading to Ray denouncing the entire family and vowing to prosecute Nicki for illegal actions during the Grant trial. Bill promptly demands a divorce from Nicki, forcing her to move back in with Alby. Meanwhile, Sarah reunites with Scott and after telling him about the miscarriage, the two decide to get married, much to Ben and Barb's dismay.

Elsewhere, Bill and Alby broker a deal with Bill's brother-in-law Ted, who is seeking a Mormon document implying that the Mormon Church faked renouncement of polygamy in order to get Utah formally recognized as a state. This leads to a war between Barb's family and Bill/Barb, culminating in Barb being excommunicated from the Mormon Church (of which Barb is able to get her mother and sister to sponsor her for one last visit inside the temple prior to being excommunicated). The Greenes also want the document and kidnap Ted's adopted daughter to force him to give it up. However, upon being given the document, they reveal that it is a forgery and that Alby faked the document in order to con money out of the church.

In the season 3 finale, Alby ultimately plots to kill both of his parents, in order to consolidate his power over the compound and to avenge a prior attempt on his life that Adaleen arranged. He and his wife Lura create a letter bomb and he leaves it outside his mother's hotel room; it explodes when a maid's cart rolls over it and the maid and Alby are injured. Selma is arrested for kidnapping Bill's adopted niece and reveals evidence to police about Roman's involvement in Kathy's death, and the DA plans to indict Roman for murder. But back at the compound Joey waits for Roman inside his home and appears to have suffocated him, avenging Kathy's death. Meanwhile Nicki, revealed to viewers as being Wanda's sister-in-law, is reunited with her former husband, J.J., and their daughter, a 14-year-old named Cara Lynn. When she learns that Cara Lynn is about to be placed within the "Joy Book" in order to be married off, Nicki returns to the family with Cara Lynn in tow, announcing that she is her daughter. His family reunited, the season ends with Bill declaring the beginning of their own new church with him as the leader.

HBO Canada premiered this season day-and-date with HBO in the U.S. on January 18, 2009.

In November 2008, http://www.hbo.com/biglove, the show's official site, launched a massive ad campaign for the third season of Big Love, including a preview of the new season, a behind-the-scenes look at the new season, and background videos of Bill Henrickson, Barbara Dutton-Henrickson, Nicolette Grant, and Margene Heffman. In the behind-the-scenes video, Ginnifer Goodwin says, "Anything you thought could happen happens." Bill Paxton states, "I thought Season 2 was vamped up, but Season 3 is even more explosive." On her character, Chloë Sevigny says, "There is definitely a power struggle that goes on between the wives. You see Bill and Barb find out about some things Nicki has been hiding from them."

In January 2009, ABCnews.com reported that the series had incorporated the YFZ ranch raid into the story line.

Season 4

The Washington Post reported that some scenes for season 4 will be shot in Washington D.C.marker

The United Effort Brotherhood

The show's fictional fundamentalist group, the "United Effort Brotherhood", or UEB, is similar to and was inspired by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) whose financial and legal wing is called the "United Effort Plan". The FLDS is one of the most prolific and well-known polygamist groups and regards itself as the legitimate successor of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who officially discontinued polygamy in 1890. Creators Olsen and Scheffer included a drive through the twin FLDS towns of Hildale, Utahmarker and Colorado Citymarker, Arizonamarker, as part of their research for the show.The raid on Juniper Creek is reminiscent of the Short Creek raid, an actual historic event from 1953 where Arizona state police and National Guard troops took action against polygamists in Colorado City.

Critical reception

Metacritic rated the show a 72 out of 100, indicating favorable reviews.

Heather Havrilesky of Salon.com said of Big Love, "There are elements of this new series that have a quirkiness that might seem deliberate or overly clever against a different backdrop, but that feels natural in its own gracefully odd environment."

Time magazine's James Poniewozik named it one of the Top 10 Returning Series of 2007, ranking it at #5.

However, the Phoenix New Times's Robert L. Pela called the show a "hot-soccer-mom fantasy" and "about as down and dirty as the old sitcom Three's Company", and said its portrayal of polygamy was "just as tidy as a deodorant commercial".

LDS Church response

In March 2006, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) issued a public statement citing concerns over the program's depiction of abuse, polygamy, use of stereotypes, and television's depiction of moral and civic values in general. Among other things, the Church stated that, "Despite its popularity with some, much of today’s television entertainment shows an unhealthy preoccupation with sex, coarse humor and foul language. Big Love, like so much other television programming, is essentially lazy and indulgent entertainment that does nothing for our society and will never nourish great minds." In March 2009, the LDS Church stated that HBO's writers, producers, and executives were displaying insensitivity to church members by choosing to display simulated segments of the LDS Church's Endowment ceremony in an episode of Big Love. The LDS Church also stated that the show had continued to blur the distinction between the LDS Church and "the show's fictional non-Mormon characters."

Awards and Nominations

The second season was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Drama Series in 2007. Bill Paxton was also nominated for the Best Actor in a Television Drama Golden Globe for his role as Bill Henrickson.

The third season was nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series.
