Back at Gladiatrix, it's chow time. The prison guards slop plates of food under the bars of the cells -- only Claire Green Eyes doesn't get any, which pisses her off royally; she starts yelling and rattling the bars of her cage. The guard tells her she's fighting tonight and can eat after she fights. "I'm hungry!" screeches Claire, and I think she and Dinah went to the same acting school. Helena passes over her food, but it's not a major sacrifice or anything, since dinner is just a bowl of beige mush. Nevertheless, Claire greedily grabs at it, but pauses, suspicious. She asks what Helena did to it, assuming that she put something in it. Helena tells her to quit sniffing glue and just eat the food. Instead, Claire flies into a rage, pleasing Scarface, who's just shown up. He says the drug is working. Then, to Helena, "Your anger will become more intense, even harder to control over time" -- which is weird, since if anything Helena's even more emotionless than normal -- "until pop!" he finishes. Helena wants to know why he's doing this. He facetiously says that she may have noticed his otherwise flawless good looks contain a slight imperfection, so we can all get a good look at the putty on his eye again. He says it's tended to cause women to lose interest in him, and you kind of want to tell him that pitting women against each other in grim death matches isn't going to score him a lot of tail either. It's not just the pretty ones who reject him, either. "I've tried whores, skanks, even freaks like you," he says, and how Helena didn't bust out laughing at Scarface trying to be all menacing as he admits that he "tried skanks" is beyond me. He wonders how a "walking aberration" like Helena could dare to reject him, and Helena sarcastically calls him the "perfect package." He glares at her and suggests that they have a little fun before she starts fighting and loses her looks, like, he's one to talk; she says they should have some fun right now, and he says "fun" again, and it was kind of like that bit on The Simpsons where Homer and George Bush are fighting and arguing with each other about how there's going to be trouble. Only this wasn't funny or clever or anything. Scarface walks out, leaving Helena to make apprehensive faces for about five hours.
