Dr. Nancy's Office Of Couples That Should Be No More. Vaughn and Moronen are going through therapy. Yeah. Because now that Dr. Nancy's banged Sloane, she's not involved in a HUGE conflict of interest here or anything. Vaughn says that Moronen doesn't trust him, and that trust is based on honesty. Moronen just says that she thinks Vaughn will leave her once she mourns the death of her father. Please, girl. He's going to kill you first! There's some more back and forth about their problems and working on them, and then Moronen drops the bomb that their real problem is that Vaughn thinks he's in love with Sydney. Not "thinks," Moronen, KNOWS. Vaughn's all, how the hell am I supposed to respond to that? Dr. Nancy's all, with some honesty and without all the 'tude, please. Vaughn just says that Sydney is very important to him and that they go away together a lot. Which is Dr. Nancy's cue to ask if Moronen and Vaughn have ever gone away together. Moronen shakes her head. Dr. Nancy says that maybe they should plan a trip together. Vaughn pipes up that Moronen's visiting her mother in Virginia. Moronen quickly tries to back out of this, but Dr. Nancy persists, and finally, the trip is on.
And that's when Dr. Nancy heads on over to Dixon's office and informs him that it worked -- Vaughn's going to Richmond. Heh. Wow. That Dr. Nancy. She's got some truly flexible morals, that one. Hypocritical Oath, anyone? The next day, Mama Reed opens her door to find both Moronen and Vaughn on the front steps. She welcomes them warmly, and Vaughn goes upstairs to drop off the luggage. Once he leaves, Moronen turns to her mother. "His being here is unacceptable," she snits at her daughter. Moronen's all, oh, bite me, Mommie Bitchiest. I had no choice. We're supposed to be reconciling. I wouldn't worry, though; he's bought my act this far, so he must be pretty damn stupid. Do you have any Snack 'Ems? Upstairs, Vaughn quickly goes into Spy Mode, placing a device inside a lamp and switching it on. He goes on comm and asks if Marshall's getting a reading. Marshall taps into the power grid and brings up the power schematic of the house. Syd gets on the horn and tells Vaughn that they'll let him know when they find the safe. He's all, copy that, and walks off. Love it when Vaughn starts getting down to business. Love it.
He heads out onto the back porch for some sweet tea with the ladies. There's some chitchat that doesn't really matter here. Basically, it's small talk, and it involves Vaughn asking Mama Reed how she's doing, and she just acts the part of the damaged mole-wife and Vaughn has to chew on the inside of his cheek to keep from pitching his glass of sweet tea directly at her head. Vaughn's phone rings, and he picks up. Syd tells him that the safe is in the study. Vaughn tells the ladies that it's Weiss and he needs help on a brief. He gets up to go upstairs and briefly takes his wife's hand. "You're cold," he says. Hee. "While I'm inside, I'll get you a sweater." Yeah. I don't think that's gonna help, Vaughn. While you're at it, you might want to pick up a blowtorch and some firewood, because that bitch is chilly.
