Before he tells LMJ, though, Frankie starts praising how direct and to the point Larry seems to be, and unfortunately starts rambling about a friend of his, to the point that Larry has to interrupt to ask again what Frankie wants done. "I want Al Hawke dead," says Frankie. "Are you certain? Very certain?" says Larry, since he is apparently the love child of the Terminator and Regis Philbin, but twice as annoying as Regis. Frankie says he understands that Larry Mullen Jr. can take care of these kinds of problems. "I get the job done. Always," says Larry, making Frankie think the guy's specialty is never missing. "It's not about missing. It's about commitment," says Larry, and it's nice to see a man on television who isn't afraid of commitment. He goes on to explain that indecision is a "weakness" and it's not in his nature to quit. And that's only the first time that the word "nature" will be used to hammer home the theme evoked in the title of this episode. And if you haven't figured out yet that at some point Frankie's going to try to call off the hit but Larry won't stop, well, then I hope you're enjoying the first television show you've ever seen in your life. So Frankie wants to know what makes Larry so "special." And in a perfect world, Larry would have beaten up Frankie for using air quotes. Instead, though, he just walks out the door and Frankie just says "come on!" and then decides to have a cigarette, whereupon Larry walks through the wall, startling Frankie. And I don't mean busts the wall down like Kool-Aid Man; he passes right through it. Frankie's impressed: "Hourly rate or flat fee?" You know, I wanted to be a hitman once, but it's really hard to break into the business. Everybody wants experienced hitmen, but how am I supposed to get experience if no one hires me to kill people?
Reese walks down a deserted street. He's approached by a couple of strange men in leather, so naturally Reese puts on the mask they give him and gets in their car. Anyone else think Helena's wasting her energy on this guy? Of course, Reese did sneer, say, "Is this necessary?" and hand over his gun, so maybe this isn't gay porn.
