Logical lapses and character inconsistency plague this episode. It is so frantic, so full of plot lines that have to be wrapped up nownownow, that the problems are impossible to ignore.

Welcome to Wife Watch!, the only blog post that ranks the most powerful wives on Big Love. For once, most of the dunderheads in this week's show are teenagers, not grown-ass men.

I love this week's episode. I even love the title, "The Special Relationship." This whole series is about special relationships, really, and the right to declare them.

I live for the scenes where the three wives fight in public places, and the throwdown at the fashion show -- with Barb's estranged sister in the background! -- is a classic.

Too much stuff happening in too little time led to unconvincing writing, unsatisfying plots, and unrecognizable characters. It also forced the show to focus on conflict-conflict-conflict.

This week was the clearest the show has ever been about how Bill's faith or hubris has warped him into a self-centered, self-righteous, and immature hypocrite with a raging God complex.

I feel Big Love changing, and while I'm not quite ready for a divorce, our marriage is certainly in trouble. Every week, you see, the series looks more like a grotesque soap opera.

"Big love" seems not like a definition of what unites Bill and his wives, but a cruel reminder of what's missing between them. That suits this season.
