The Who agree, while I sit around and think about Jack Hawksmoor, the superhero who can talk to buildings and cities. I conclude that the building would probably tell Jack, "Get the red-headed jackass out of here! Haven't I suffered enough tonight?"
Once we return from commercials, Alexx is instructing someone to make sure any evidence tied to a particular body stays with that body. Then she heads out. Delko's walking with Connie as her stretcher gets rolled to the ambulance. She tells him, "Delko, I can't feel anything." He's confused, as he normally hears this line much later in the evening. Connie's all, "That's good, right?" Going by the look on Delko's face, it's not, but he lies to her. Ben (sigh) Browder asks how Connie is, and Delko says, "I don't think she's going to make it."
The rescue people have already come in, one with a dog. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess the dog's trained to sniff for arson. Speedle's giving Horatio the lay of the land. Horatio asks if there's any sign of accelerant, and Fireman Fred on his right answers that the dogs haven't found anything yet. Speedle then points out the chained exit door. Horatio asks, "So if we have two chained exit doors, did we miss anything?" Argh, the "we" thing? Did he read in some business magazine that using "we" somehow bonded people or something? Fireman Fred replies angrily, "You know me better than that, Horatio. The permit was filed five months ago when it was opened. Exits were free and clear. There was a compliance issue." Horatio leaps all over this, and Fireman Fred clarifies that the issue was with the soundproofing. Horatio directs Speedle to look at the soundproofing, then heads out to talk with owner Quentin Haid, who is currently keeping Vin Ethanol company.
Delko's on the phone with someone whom he's promising to call back when he sees DJ Scorpius kicking back against a wall. Delko comes over all, "There's a lot of people wanting to talk to you," and Scorpius is like, "Yeah, well, I'm right here." The real Scorpius would snap this guy's neck like a pretzel. There's some lame ¿Que es mas macho? back-and-forth, and Delko notes how DJ Scorpius happens to be soot-free. Scorpius is all, "Yeah, well, I saw the flames and I bounced, dog. I bounced." He doesn't really bounce so much as he falls flat. Delko angrily asks about the pyrotechnics, and DJ Scorpius counters that he uses them every weekend.
