We get a close-up security-camera image of Clark; he's talking to Carmelita, saying that even though Patrick and Tripp are on the outs, when Patrick called and asked for his help, he couldn't refuse. Carmelita gives Clark a Tupperware container of his, the contents of which she just apparently heated up, and apologizes for not having much food in the house. She offers to make him some cookies, but he refuses: "Sugar and stakeouts. That's where those cops go wrong." Hee. He says his steamed rice and hard-boiled eggs keep him sharp. Carmelita tells him she's never played the damsel in distress before. I am going to skip gracefully over the obvious comment here. Clark reassures her that in the seventeen years he's been with the Darlings, he's seen plenty, but they've always gotten through it. He's obviously in great mourning over Dutch, then. He tells her there's now a "plant in the plant" (heh) -- a surveillance camera with a live feed right into his car. We switch to the surveillance camera's POV again, and the time stamp reads 19:28, for the detail-oriented. He tells her she can relax before taking his leave.
Jeremy is leaning on Lisa as they lie at right angles on the sectional couch, and he muses about how weird his life has become, and then confesses that he's a sucky artist. He realizes, though, that he is getting better, prompting Lisa (subtly overenthusiastically from the pot, which is a nice touch) to tell him again that he should try being himself with Sofia, and to be honest in letting things unfold naturally. "Lying will slowly kill your insides, Jeremy." So will alcohol and drugs, but I don't see him giving those up. She gets a little emotional as she reiterates that Jeremy should tell Sofia the truth, and then turns away and flops back down in tears, saying she's losing her husband to Jeremy's family -- he's never around, and she and Kiki are just home, missing him while he's off doing God knows what for the Darlings. This is really a great scene; it's completely different in tone from all the times Lisa has bitched to Nick about the Darlings, because the fact that she's hanging out and smoking pot with Jeremy shows that she realizes how magnetic he, and by extension, all the Darlings are, and that revelation is what's making her feel genuine fear that she'll lose Nick to them. She never really worried about Karen, but it's not just her -- it's all the Darlings. She goes on that they had a good life before Nick took the job and that he doesn't need to do it, and apologizes for being stoned and stupid, but says she just doesn't get it. Jeremy crawls over and sits on her lap and says he doesn't get it either -- if she were his, he'd be a couch potato. You mean you'd give up the life of a fake valet? Get out! Lisa isn't too stoned to notice that Jeremy's perched on her, and he leans in for a kiss, but it lasts about a nanosecond before Lisa pulls back and tells him not to do that again. Jeremy accedes to that request and makes a mental note to start buying stronger pot.
