This next scene is super tedious, so you'll forgive me for blasting through it. Rosetti is sitting in an empty church, praying to God. The prayer of course turns into angry recriminations. Gyp's angry at the heavens! God gives him wants and desires for things out of his reach! Why's he gotta do that? O the Forgotten, Forsaken Child of the Lord! She's spitting his words out at this point. This comes out of nowhere, of course. No buildup to this great religious importance in Gyp's life, so it means nothing beyond another scene where the villain acts extreme in otherwise sacred circumstances. To wit: the parish priest approaches him and tells him he's being rather loud and profane. So, obviously, Rosetti starts beating him and demanding the Church collection money. Because that's where we're at with this guy.
Okay, this next scene is extremely weird and intense but here we go: Gillian leads a blindfolded Roger down to the Maison Derriere's insanely appointed marble bathroom, though "room" doesn't do this palace justice. She's being very playful and sexy with him, telling him he has to do everything exactly as she says. Starting with taking all his clothes off. I approve of your methods so far, Gillian. She has him get in the tub; he gets antsy about her getting in their with him, so she disrobes to placate him. Then she begins washing him with a sponge. The uncomfortable mother/son vibes are really freaking me out at this point. She tells him to close his eyes and relax, and the expectation is that she'll start giving him a handjob in the tub or something. Actually, my expectation was that she'd start remembering a time when she gave Jimmy a handjob in the tub, but maybe I'm just having Hedwig flashbacks.
What actually happens is so much freakier. Roger's eyes fly open in shock, as Gillian has plunged a dainty 1920s syringe into a vein in his left arm. He freaks out, and she tries to calm him down, saying it's just heroin, is all. I start to wonder if I'm recapping the right show, as things have gotten all American Horror Story in this place. Panicking, he asks how much she dosed him with. "I suppose rather a lot," is Gillian's semi-disinterested response. He tries to retaliate, but the drugs take hold quickly. She pushes him back into the tub and tells him to enjoy it, "have a new adventure." "Am I talking?" he slurs to her. No, she tells him, he's dreaming. At this, Gillian takes the sponge and with it, pushes Roger's face below the surface of the water. He's barely conscious as it is. Even when his body starts struggling against the drowning, Gillian's able to keep him under with one hand. He bubbles up his last bubbles of air, then he's still.
