High atop the Golden Gate Bridge -- and this is a set that certainly got a workout this season -- the Dolt's utilizing his supernatural Lo-Jack in an attempt to determine Snidely's current location. An ever-useless Elder we've never seen before and likely shall never see again orbs in to inform the Dolt that he's wasting his time. The Council of Elders have been searching for Snidely ever since the shift, evidently, and if they collectively can't find the guy, there's little hope the Dolt can do it on his own. Or something like that. I swear to God, I've become so used to sloppy or nonexistent explanations for events on this show that I've taken to fanwanking those explanations for myself automatically as I'm watching. Whatever. The upshot of this scene is that the Elder's arrived to warn the Dolt that "[his] emotions are clouding [his] better judgment," and that should he take it upon himself to punish Snidely for Snidely's actions against the Dolt's family, it could have dire repercussions for the world at large. Basically, this guy's telling the Dolt to sacrifice the Psycho in favor of the greater good, as that really is the Dolt's primary duty as an Elder. Naturally, the Dolt tells him to fuck off and orbs right on out of there. So much for that promotion.
The Only Hospital In San Francisco. A policeman leads an idiotically grinning amputee through the emergency room doors towards points unknown as the camera pans past another amputee in a wheelchair and another amputee leaning on a doctor's arm, before landing on policewoman who cheerily notes, "You're all done, sir -- all you have to do is pay your fine!" as she assists yet another amputee to his feet. Everyone's clad, incidentally, in bright primaries and pastels. Raige and Phoebe wander into the emergency room from the street, with Raige snarking, "Wow. It's just as creepy in here as it is out there." The gals arrive at the reception desk, where a blazing redhead in an old-fashioned nurse's uniform welcomes them with a far-too-chipper "Welcome to San Francisco Memorial! How can I help-help-help you?" "You could take it down a notch," Raige deadpans. "She's kidding!" Phoebe goofs, all teeth and lipstick, faux-playfully batting at Raige's arm before emphasizing, "She's a kidder!" Changing the subject, Phoebe asks, "Just out of curiosity, what happened here? Was it a freeway accident?" "Oh, heavens, no!" the receptionist giddily cries. "It's always like this around here," she continues, before adding in an exaggeratedly conspiratorial whisper, "Lawbreakers, you know." I don't know about you, but I am loving this chick. A quick check of the IMDb tells me she's being played by Kerry O'Malley, Mike O'Malley's sister and recipient of Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations for her performance in the recent revival of Into The Woods. Good to know her parents produced at least one talented child.
