Gavin's office. Jane knocks and comes in. She mentions the orchids all over the building and asks if it's a special occasion. He says they're in memory of his and Olivia's daughter, who died ten years ago today. Jane wants to come back, but Gavin insists she stay and discuss what she came for. She recaps last week's episode with the birds for him and asks for the original plans. He asks what she wants to know, and she says she's looking for the reason someone wanted to bury the history of the Drake. Based just on the knowledge Jane has, I'm Team Henry here; Jane seems to be making some huge leaps of logic. One boarded-up wall does not a shadowy conspiracy make. (One creepy kid skittering around the basement? Yeah. But she doesn't really know about that yet.)
Gavin says he probably has the old plans, and asks if Jane can do something for him in return. He asks her to keep an eye on Olivia, since the anniversary of her daughter's death is so emotional for her. Just then Olivia gets off the elevator, encumbered by shopping bags, and Jane asks if she's free for lunch. Olivia accepts and says she'll meet Jane downstairs in an hour, "to give you a chance to change your clothes." I love how Olivia keeps pointing out how Jane dresses like an Urban Outfitters hobo.
Annie is in a cab, stuck in traffic. She asks the cabbie if they can go faster, because this is totally a reasonable thing people say when they're in gridlocked traffic and instead of telling her that sure, he'll just push the button that turns his cab into a flying car, the driver says all of Lexington is shut down for some diplomat's funeral. The diplomat? Annie's Mr. Diebold, the cab TV informs her. Annie freaks out as the news lady details all of Diebold's achievements (apparently she put in that he was the director of the CIA? Come on, that is a detail that people would know!), hands the cabbie some cash and hauls ass back the Drake.
In the lobby, she asks Gavin for a word. She tells him the story she wrote wasn't true, that she made it up, and he says sure it was true -- he read it in the paper! Mr. Diebold was an American hero! He asks if she wants to take that away from him and from herself. Because the obituary writer always basks in the reflected glory of his subject? If that was true, no one would ever write Jerry Sandusky's obit.
Gavin's club. He and Henry play a violently competitive game of racquetball. Gavin asks Henry what he wants, and when Henry is first glib and then obvious (water; to marry Jane), Gavin advises that when "someone who is fairly connected" asks what he wants, Henry should mention the things he can't get on his own. Glad to see Gavin isn't suffering from any deficiencies of self-esteem. Henry says he wants to be chief of staff for Bill Edwards, a Brooklyn city councilman who might run for mayor next year. And that's the second mention of Greenpoint on this show, which I believe is ABC's way of making it up to my friend Marisa for towing her car a bunch of times while they filmed Life on Mars in her neighborhood.
