    Lyman finally comes clean to us, not to Shelly about how he's writing this book to understand his own failed marriage to Ellen. Lyman finds himself overcome with emotion at the tragedy of such a marriage and he strangles on his words Then, the shadiness levels go off the charts when Susan blushes at Augusta's assertion that Frank is in love with her. Susan and Oliver will have to take Ollie back to Milton, but anything is better than what's happening now. This causes Susan to utter an unthinkably dirty cussword: "damn" 5. Shelly is sure that Oliver never stopped drinking, though, because her dad would tell her about the ragers he would throw back in the day.

    Oliver is also experimenting in an attempt to create "hydraulic cement" 3. So, Susan and Oliver will stay around for a few weeks while Oliver finishes up some things, and then they'll head off to who knows where. More good questions both for him and for us. As Lyman focuses his writing, he discovers that he is writing about a marriage. How many of us are guilty of that?

    It seems to describe the loose wandering of the Ward family as they try to carve out a civilized existence in the West and, Susan hopes, to return to the East as successes. All this stunt does is make Lyman appreciate his grandmother even more—she'd never get with a shady dude like that. The kid's name is Zardoz. Oliver denies it, however. At one point, Susan decides to stretch her legs and stroll alongside the wagon, but that doesn't last long. Oliver feels her disdain, and in a moment of ingratitude—when he has brought Susan to Boise after a long separation, has shown her their new home, and has told her all of his grand plans—Susan continues to criticize.

He introduces himself to Agnes, but that's about it—Oliver and Ollie are out and about. The mood in the room has definitely shifted.
