“This Christmas is your new beginning. Our new beginning.”
– Nicolette “Nicki” Grant
Hope y’all remembered to tune in last Sunday to the third Season 5 episode of Big Love. As always, here is the HBO video recap of episode 5.03 “Certain Poor Shepherds” from the HBO website:
So how was this week’s episode for you? Personally, I really thought this episode had some great moments; the ice skating scene was rather nice, and I really enjoyed seeing Nicki and Cara Lynn connect, even if it was on such an unfortunate subject. Overall, I’ve been really happy with where the show’s been going this season; compared to last season’s rather over-the-top twists, this season has focused much more on Bill and the wives as people, and I think the writers have done a pretty good job of tying up some of last season’s craziest storylines. The recent developments around Lois are a great addition to the story as well; her illness is an unwelcome additional burden for Bill yet not one unique to him or polygamy.
Anyway, media-wise, we’ve updated the gallery with 288 HD screen captures of Chloë as Nicki in the episode, as well as 8 site-exclusive video clips. Please remember you must be a registered and logged in media archive user to access our collection of video clips — unlogged users will not be able to view said material.
