Alex has a conjugal visit with Big Al, who is in a country-club-type prison. Big Al plans to sell his beloved Pricetown to his arch rival, “Aaron the Bargain Baron” so he can pay his debt to the IRS. When Alex learns of this, she challenges Aaron to a poker game — winner take all. Despite the fact that Alex doesn’t know how to play poker, Al shows her and she wins everything! Meanwhile, Georgie is back in the real estate business to help pay the costs of going to therapist Dr. David Caspian. In her therapy, Georgie begins to believe that she was molested by her father. She tells her husband, John and then reluctantly tells Bea and her sisters. None of them believe Georgie. Teddy has recurring nightmares that Falconer died in a plane crash. The newlyweds find a house in the suburbs. Their happiness abruptly ends when Falconer, who is testifying against a gangster, is blown up in his car while Teddy watches helplessly.
