In a walk of shame made infinitely more shameful by the elephant ankles of her loose-fitting stockings, Sofie slinks back into her trailer ands sits down in her favorite chair.
Mommatose: I knew you'd be back.
Sofie: You might have known that. But I'll tell you something, Mother. You don't know everything.
Mommatose: Yeah, but I do know Avogadro's number. I also know number two, unfortunately. You wanna give me a hand with this bedpan?
Never one to let good gossip go unrepeated, Lila immediately bolts for Lodz's trailer to pass on what she's just seen. Lodz is a big ol' cranky-pants until he hears that Gabe's wrist is healed, and then he sits up in bed and looks pensive. "On his own?" he asks. "He did it on his own?" Hmm. I've been speculating for a while now that the creatures of light and darkness both require some sort of a mentor to fulfill their role. Iris is obviously Justin's, and Lodz seems to be angling for that spot with Ben. Whether or not he's supposed to get it, I don't know, but this scene does seem to support my theory. "That young pup," growls Lila. "Thinks he can go off and do his tricks without bringing you in. You'll show him, won't you?" Well, maybe he will, and maybe he won't, but what he what he will do is start beating Lila with his cane. Um, okay. I'd speculate on what that might mean as well, but it's getting close to deadline, and Sars tends to respond in the exact same way when I turn things in late.
And finally, we return to California one last time. The phone is ringing in Iris's house, and she rushes downstairs to answer it. It's worth noting that she's fully dressed in a robe and nightgown, which makes it seem unlikely that Tommy managed to score tonight. Sucks to be him, I guess. She answers the phone, and we hear Clancy's voice speaking in Russian. "Alexei?" she asks. "You always knew what was inside of me," he replies. And then he hangs up, and Iris just stands there looking scared. Eventually she heads back upstairs, and the camera slowly zooms in on a photograph hanging on the wall. It's Justin and Iris when they were kids, and to no one's surprise, they're the same exact kids we saw tormenting Justin in his vision. The spooky music swells, and we slowly fade to black.
Next week: LOBSTER BOY!!!!
