So Priya apparently didn't have to think it over too long, as the next scene is the gala gallery opening, and the shorthand version is that even though the snooty crowd loves her stuff enough to make her the next It Girl, the whole thing is very much Not Her Scene. Well, that is until she investigates a room that's toward the back but hardly private and sees the beginning stages of a vaguely orgy-like event happening, but after you've watched Rome pretty much everything else of this ilk pales in comparison, so let's focus on the part where Echo emerges from the room, fully clothed at least, and compliments Sierra both on her art and her own beauty before encouraging her to stay with Nolan. "He finds an artist, they thrive." Next time Nolan goes to all the trouble to arrange such a scenario, I hope he insists that the participants have better grammar skills. Nearby, Nolan is chatting with the fabulous Keith Carradine, David Carradine's younger half-brother, who you may know from...well, numerous things over the years, but most recently Dexter, where he plays Special Agent Frank Lundy. Well, "played" may be the correct term, but as I'm writing this on Saturday we'll have to wait and see. Anyway, Keith Carradine tells Nolan that the whole setup is "an elaborate, expensive seduction," and Rossum is happy to do it as a token of their gratitude for all the work he's done for them, "but couldn't you just buy her a necklace or a boat or something?" Well, not to defend Nolan, but I'm sure he's off necklaces after all the recent trips to Venice Beach, and Priya would probably fear that any boat she got on would head straight for Sydney. Rather than tell Keith Carradine this, though, Nolan says that Priya is an artist and "free spirit," and as such can't be bought. Keith Carradine, getting the idea, offers that she can be lured, but wonders why Nolan doesn't just have them build him the perfect woman. Nolan, however, says he doesn't want a Doll. "I want her." I kind of wish it still were summer, because this guy is giving me the cold chills better than any air conditioner I've ever met.
