Saul knocks on Milo's door, and KEITH MARS opens it! I had heard this casting spoiler, but had since forgotten about it, and was very psyched to see Enrico Colantoni's round face again. Saul, presumably figuring that this is Milo's boyfriend, is flustered, but Keith Mars tells him that Milo's in Italy for a few weeks. Saul makes to leave but drops his name, and Keith Mars smiles in recognition and shakes Saul's hand, introducing himself as "Evan" and saying that Milo told him about Saul. Saul's face: "He didn't tell you about the Florida Keys, did he? Because that was PRIVATE!" Evan says that he's just staying in the place while Milo's gone, and invites Saul in so he can give him the number of Milo's hotel. "Apparently he managed to drown his cell phone in the Trevi fountain." He insists that Saul take a seat. "Pour yourself some wine!" Okay, they're as good as married.
Now, I adore Emily VanCamp and I regretted that all my episodes last season were from before she was on the show, but wow, do I not care about Detective Rebecca and David's stupid photos. Rebecca notes that David's pictures are marked with the year on the back, and David tells her that the one she's looking at was taken during his peyote period. "Drugs are bad -- you know that, right?" Sure, we'll go with that. Rebecca finds one of David and her mom (a real picture, since of course Ken Olin, who plays David, and Patricia Wettig are married in real life), and then another one of Holly from twenty-plus years ago, and they both marvel at how pretty she was. David gives the photo to Rebecca, and then compliments her for coming away with as many as two good photos on her first day of shooting. I'd think that was an odd place to end the scene if it hadn't already put me into approximately the same level of consciousness as Kitty.
Robert shows up at Jason's room and offers to take him for a ride to the Governor's mansion, but Jason immediately confronts him about Isaac. Robert tries to say that was a long time ago, which is not the indicated play, and Jason agrees: "No, you breaking my Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots was a long time ago." Heh. Jason goes on that the experience of being forcibly outed is still actually rather fresh in his mind, so Robert says they should talk about it, but right now, it's..."Inconvenient?" Jason finishes for him. "Unlike when you're campaigning in the Bay Area, when having a gay brother is the thing you're most proud of?" He doesn't need the robots to land a good punch anymore. Robert tries to say that he's been "completely consistent" about Jason's sexuality, and adds that he "couldn't care less" that Jason's gay. On the one hand, that's not the warmest way to convey a sense of tolerance, nor is it nearly the same as being "proud" to have a gay brother. But I will give credit to Robert for not saying "could care less," even if that would have been more heartwarming if taken literally. Robert half-yells that it would, however, be easier on him (I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he's talking exclusively about politics here), and Jason icily counters that he's sorry he can't make things less difficult. To his small credit, Robert looks chastened and upset as he tells Jason he has to leave to meet the Governor, and Jason sarcastically tells him to go. Good scene.
