We're treated to a little montage of scenes as Cary says, "He's been using me to read members of my audience. Finds those with what he calls 'valuable destinies.'" Promising victims get to play the spin-to-win game: "Then their destinies are imprinted on the chips, and that old black magic wheel is tricked out to never [sic] pay off." Cary gets to work the title into his speech, too. It's getting less exciting when they say the title in every episode. Cary goes on to say that when the players lose, DeMarko gets their destinies, which he offers up "to an extremely black global market, sold to anyone willing to pay big money to change his or her life." Fred quips, "Futures trading." She asks what happens to the people who lose their destinies, and Cary answers, "They've got no purpose, direction -- unable to succeed or accomplish anything ever again." Zoom in on Angel, still playing the slots. When Cary gets around to describing the victims as zombies, Gunn realizes that Angel's destiny has been acquired. Fred draws their attention to the large number of goons surrounding them. Gunn figures it's time for "that fightin'-for-[their]-lives thing," but Cary has another idea. He rushes over to a microphone placed by some street performers and launches into a wailing high note. Is he confusing Vegas with Pylea? People cover their ears, and marquee lightbulbs start exploding. I hum the theme to The Natural. As everyone scrambles to avoid the falling glass, the MoG scurry away in the confusion.
The MoG escape from The Fremont Street Experience and down to the Red Barn. Since there haven't been any attacks on people's necks this week, it looks like we're switching to the other theme for the season, which is "People Flipping Out With Little Provocation." It's Gunn's turn this time, so he suddenly goes on a tirade about how Cary "sold Angel out" and was "living so large, blarin' Tony Bennett so loud in that sweet suite" that he didn't listen to his conscience. Ooo, homonyms. Gunn asks why Cary didn't refuse to help Lee, and Cary insists that he did: "The first time he asked me to, of course I refused! So he blew a girl's brains out right in front of me." Gunn digests that for a second and, to his credit, apologizes. They all stare at each other uncomfortably, until I start to wonder if this is a microcosm of things that will happen later this season. Boy, I hope not.
