Closing time. Helena and Sandy don't have to go home, but they can't stay there. Well, I guess they can. They gossip some as Helena catches Sandy up on all the "headlines" Sandy has missed in the eight years since she's been gone. To Helena, they are: a "Jerry's Juice" opening up, a former teacher going from a he to a she, and the opening of a shoe store. These events are all deemed by Helena more newsworthy than, for example, her mom getting stabbed to death. Sandy shrugs off Helena's inquiries about her disappearance with a "things got crazy" and says she went to stay with distant relatives. When Helena asks what Sandy's now doing, Sandy says she's a "headhunter" who works mostly "freelance," but is currently working on a project in New Gotham, and if things work out she might find herself staying for good. Sandy asks about the bar, which Helena admits she doesn't own but merely bartends, Sandy says something how Helena's mom must be thrilled, and you'd think working in a trendy bar like this is on the same level as being a crack whore, the way Sandy sounds. "Hard to say," says Helena, like nothing like cracking wise over your mom's murder, hey? Helena fills Sandy in, and Sandy's very sorry, of course, and says, "I can't imagine anything worse than losing your family." Unfortunately, we then get the close-up of Helena's transceiver earring that lets us know Oracle's contacting her, this time to tell her there's a signal coming in from Reese and the Delphi computer is reporting a murder. Helena blows off Sandy by saying she's got a family thing, and they promise to get together the next night and rip up the town like they did when they were "the two coolest chicks in New Gotham high school," so maybe Helena didn't have the same "freak" issues in high school that Dinah has.
