Later, Alma and Kit are in bed together and Alma tells Kit that she is concerned about Grace’s constant obsession over the aliens. She tells Kit that Grace needs him and sends him off to her bedroom, which is just behind the wall. Alma listens in as her husband comforts Grace and then has sex with her. Kudos to the sister wives on “Big Love” for keeping their lives a bit more separate. If I was Alma, I would have asked for bedrooms further apart or at least better insulation. You know better insulation existed in 1968. Sure, it was made of asbestos and would ultimately give you cancer, but these people already have been probed by aliens so they’re probably going to contract some weird disease down the road anyway.
As Kit and Grace bump in the night, we see a flash of lights, the same lights that we witnessed in the first episode when the aliens came for Alma. We quickly learn it’s not Alma’s worst fears realized. The lights are from a pickup truck and a guy who has come to terrorize the family. Apparently, Massachusetts wasn’t always a live free or die, understanding of untraditional family values blue state. The terrorist sets fire to the house but it’s extinguished.
Kit calls the cops to report the crime and the officer lets Kit know he is aware of his family’s unique situation. He also reminds Kit that polygamy is illegal in Massachusetts, so suck it, Mitt Romney. Kit could just show the officer Grace’s death certificate and clear this whole matter up. I’m guessing necrophilia, technical or not, is still a crime in the Commonwealth, though.
The officer also informs Kit that he is aware that one of his children is white and one is black. Well, duh. My wife is black, the legally alive wife, anyway. Actually, scratch that. Alma should be legally dead too, since the only reason Kit was in Briarcliff in the first person was for murdering Alma and being suspected of being Bloody Face. Why hasn’t anyone said anything about Alma suddenly being undead too? This is a logistical nightmare when it comes to paperwork.
Technically, Kit is a widower since both Alma and Grace are legally dead. He’s sitting on a goldmine! When he does go out to find that third sister wife, the chicks are totally going to dig that he’s a widower. If “Seinfeld” taught us anything, it’s that the widower storyline is the best way to pick up on hot, sympathetic women.
The first anniversary is paper. The fourth anniversary is axe wounds.
After being terrorized, Alma realizes that her family will never be safe as long as Grace is around. Kit is trying to comfort Grace and make sure she is fine after the attack. Then we see a swing of an axe, an axe that lands squarely in Grace’s back. Alma has murdered Grace in the same way that Grace disposed of her sister. Poetic justice, I guess, except 2Pac and Janet Jackson are nowhere to be found. They would have provided tremendous street cred to the soundtrack of AHS: Asylum, though.
