"Fight or Flight"

I have only now gotten caught up with the last three episodes of Big Love Season Three, which is quickly becoming a new obsession (after watching it, interested, from the beginning).

If there was an Emmy for "Scene of the Year," it would go hands-down to the ending of "Fight or Flight," in which the despicable Roman Grant attempts to force Kathy Marquart to marry the ├╝bercreepy Hollis Green. The encounter in the barn, Green's pitch-forked (by a fleeing Kathy) wife, the truck chase, Kathy's death-by-braids end: an astonishing few moments, deserving its own wing in the Television Grotesque Hall of Fame.
