Fall Pilot Season: Do Not Disturb
Rhonda enters her office to find Neal waiting for her -- it turns out that, in response to the "security situation" she and Billy keep using as a cover, Neal had security cameras installed! Wait, the hotel didn't have security cameras? I would think that would be the second or third thing you would install in a hotel, right before the ice machine. Rhonda is stunned, and Neal whips out some popcorn, for a movie night! Commercial!
Neal suggests they watch the electrical room tape first. Rhonda says nuh-uh. Laundry room? Nononono. Security entrance? Uh-uh. Rhonda says that the heads on her VCR (which she conveniently has in her office -- I review TV shows for a living, and even I don't have a VCR in my office) have never been cleaned, and can make footage look like "two black people squished together." Neal thinks that's a myth. Okay, now that was funny. Rhonda destroys the tape, which turns out to be Neal's copy of Glitter, which he should have destroyed long ago. It turns out there are no security cameras! The entire hotel is wide open for a crime and/or murder spree!
Rhonda comes clean, and Neal reveals that he's never felt closer to her. He says they're the same now, and Rhonda feels slightly unclean. In the outer office, Nicole tells Molly that, thanks to her, she got a modeling gig -- as the new face of crystal meth addiction! The tagline: "Don't let this happen to you!" Larry comes in and tells Gus (who's lying on the couch) that Victor was angry at first, but then the jealousy turned into hot man-sex. Gus is bemused at his ability to bring gay couples together. On their way upstairs, Neal reveals to Rhonda that, after reading it, he realizes that he's not even the subject of the TONY article, which means it must be someone else. The camera pans over all of the employees before following Molly outside, where she gets her keys back from the former employee who wrote the article. Apparently, she's the voracious supervisor, and while he doesn't work there anymore, they still have a relationship, which makes me wonder why he felt driven to publish an article about their sexual exploits. Luckily, it's not the biggest wonder I have about this show.
