big love preview the noose tightens 'Big Love' first look: Persons of interest

Our Henrickson-loving hearts can’t take much more of the suffering thrown on the “Big Love” clan — so we suppose it’s a good thing that there are only three episodes left of the HBO series.

Only three!

The pre-penultimate outing, the whimsically titled “The Noose Tightens,” finds not just Bill (Bill Paxton) coming under fire for the Margene’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) underage marriage bombshell — but Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn).

Our exclusive preview of the Mar. 6 episode shows sweet Barb, who never wanted this life for herself, is now a person of interest for “procurement,” aka child-bride recruiting.

We don’t see how things could possibly get any worse, but we’re sure they’ll find a way. Is there an even remotely happy ending in sight?
