Over at the police station, Matthews promises to do anything Naomi needs to help her rape case against Cannon. The lady police officer has to break it to them that Matthews' drunken testimony isn't exactly the silver bullet this case needs. It's still a case of "he said, she said." Naomi sulks at her dismal prospects, but Matthews promises to stick by her side and points out to the hall -- where Annie, Silver, and AAdrianna are standing -- to remind her that she has many people in her corner. Naomi decides to press charges. Credits.
We rejoin the action at West Bev, where Naomi is engaged in a Mexican stand-off with a nonplussed secretary over whether Naomi's recent absences can be deemed "excused" or not. Naomi pulls out her full arsenal of threats and condescension -- including pulling out a pen that she claims is "worth more than" the secretary's car -- to avoid explaining her absences. All the while, Ausscar is watching with piqued interest from a distance. Eventually, Matthews breezes in and informs the secretary that Naomi's absences are indeed excused. The Perma Donna huffs out, stopping only to hiss at Ausscar, "What the Hell are you staring at?" "A vision," he lilts back. She rolls her eyes and leaves, and the secretary can't resist deadpanning, "What. A bitch." Ausscar agrees dreamily, fully bewitched, bothered, and bewildered by Naomi's haggery.
