'Big Love' first look: Alby coins a new term for his disciples

big-love-episode-5-5-preview.jpgLooking back on the first four seasons of "Big Love," it's really hard to imagine that Alby ( Matt Ross) would be out-creeping himself this close to the end. But he's still really taking it to extremes.

Having lost wife #1 and his sons to a women's shelter, he's out to get Bill ( Bill Paxton) more than ever. The latest to join his recruits -- he's already brainwashed his mother Adaleen ( Mary Kay Place) -- is Verlan, Rhonda's husband.

The nature of the bidding he'll be doing is a mystery, but in this exclusive clip from the Feb. 13 episode, "The Special Relationship," Alby and Verlan settle their arrangement over the exchange of cash and a glass of milk. What else does Verlan get for his service? An awesome title. Followers of the prophet Alby are hereby referred to as... Albyites.

Please never become one.
