Glory be! The polygamy drama begins its fifth and final round with renewed vitality. After boldly presenting his three sister wives to the world in last year's cliffhanger, Bill (Bill Paxton) -- businessman, casino owner and Utah senator-elect -- and his family must deal with the fallout. It's major. Nicki (Chloë Sevigny) goes bonkers when her son is bullied; Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin) gets distressed over nasty tabloid reports; and Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn) starts drinking. All said, the Henrickson clan stands at an utterly absorbing crossroads. (HBO, 9 P.M.)
