RevCam's Secret Past
Felicity dives into RevCam's sweet in-ground pool. RevCam helps her out and gives her a towel. Felicity tells him about how Frank was following her. RevCam says he "did something that might have backfired" -- he shot his wife in the face. No, not really: he says that he told Frank how much he cares for Felicity, and now he thinks Frank is mad at Felicity since he was friends with Sally. Nice framing job by the cinematographer here -- RevCam's face is so low in the frame that parts of his chin drop off-screen if he utters anything with an "o" sound in it. Felicity thinks they should stop seeing each other for a while, because this "doesn't feel right." RevCam tells Felicity that she's the only thing in his life that does feel right. Then they make out.
Suddenly, RevCam's in his closet with Frank, punching at Sally's empty hangers and claiming that Felicity took all of Sally's stuff away even though he told her that he wasn't ready. Frank offers to arrest Felicity; RevCam, now showing us his control-freak tendencies by fixing the hangers he just knocked off the rack, says that he can't have another female figure in his kids' lives taken away from them. Frank asks RevCam if he's doing anything "stupid" with Felicity. RevCam says no, because what he's doing isn't so much stupid as it is stomach-turning. Frank says he wouldn't blame RevCam for putting the moves on Felicity, as she is "cute as a button." A button with really, really big hair.
Felicity and her mother are shopping for homecoming dresses. Mom offers to buy Felicity some ugly black shoes that she claims will go perfectly with Felicity's blue dress. A saleslady walks by, wearing a tiny yellow dress underneath an oversized white blazer. Not only was this movie written in 1985, but it also seems to have been shot then, too. Felicity asks Mom if she can stay at Tracy's for homecoming weekend. Mom is so glad that Felicity won't be babysitting that she agrees.
Back at home, Felicity is arranging her new dress and shoes on her bed and looking sad. Clair -- hi, Clair! Haven't seen you in a while! (SPCCC: 9) -- drives up, and Felicity meets her outside. Apparently, Felicity asked Clair to ask Frank to stop bothering her. Clair reports that Frank thinks that Felicity murdered Sally, and that RevCam has been telling him all kinds of things, like that Felicity stole Sally's necklace -- the very necklace that currently adorns Felicity's neck. Smart, Felicity -- wear the necklace your mother forbid you to have around your house. RevCam also told Frank that Felicity threw out all of his wife's stuff. Felicity says that Frank must be lying, because he hates her for not being Sally. Clair sets her straight: Frank is a good cop (well, compared to a certain detective who walks around disclosing confidential case information ahem Clair ahem) and isn't in the habit of framing teenage girls for murders just because he doesn't like them. RevCam, however, might be a different story. Felicity opens her mouth and looks around. This prompts Clair to ask her if she's sleeping with RevCam. Felicity doesn't answer. "Fe-li-city," Clair says, sounding like a disappointed mother. Clair and Felicity then stand around for a while, waiting for the scene to end.
