Lexi stops by the Sheriff's station to show off her new shirt to Jo. When the shirt is on, it totally conceals Lexi's pregnant belly. When she lifts it up off her stomach, the pregnancy returns. How does Lexi know that the shirt doesn't contain all kinds of crazy radiation that she is now exposing her babies to? It's only in the beta-testing stages! And all for the sake of vanity, which is stupid anyway because it's not like anyone looks at a pregnant woman and thinks she's obese. Anyway, Jo pretends to be excited for Lexi and probably wonders why Lexi is bothering her when she's trying to do her job, since, unlike Lexi, Jo is employed. And here's a chance to do her job right now, as a security alert pops up on her computer screen. Jo decides to ask Lexi about the babies' father instead of investigating, asking his name (Duncan) and job (World Health Organization doctor, "saving the world one malaria-ridden tsetse fly at a time," Lexi says. Apparently, the malaria-ridden mosquitoes are someone else's job) and then informing Lexi that he just arrived in Eureka. Not only that, but he just walked right on into the Sheriff's office and is standing behind Lexi as they speak.
The rude woman with the peeing and parking problems waltzes into Café Diem and orders a large diet soda before asking for the location of the nearest bathroom. So her bladder is the size of a pea and yet she still hasn't learned her lesson about not drinking large quantities of fluids? She heads for the toilet just as Carter enters and cheerfully greets his daughter, because unlike Lexi, Zoe is employed. "I REALLY wish you wouldn't do that!" Zoe snaps back. Carter figures he's being shit on by yet another person in this town, but Zoe is actually talking to Drechmeyer, who took his TIRD detector to Café Diem and happily reports that "my TIRD meter is going wild!" Vince doesn't seem the least bit worried that Drechmeyer is from the health inspector's office or anything, just loudly whispers for Carter to do something about Drechmeyer before he scares all the customers away. Carter takes a seat with Drechmeyer just as a salt shaker moves itself across the counter. "Did anyone just see that?" Zoe asks. Vince, standing behind her, raises his hand slowly. The rest of the salt shakers follow their brother to the other side of the counter. Drechmeyer stands and announces that his TIRD meter is spiking and "it's starting!" With that, the walls shake and various bottles and sections of Café Diem décor fling themselves across the room. Carter orders everyone to get down on the ground to avoid being hit. Drechmeyer stays standing, as does the woman, who emerges from the bathroom with no idea that something is amiss despite the fact that people are screaming and things are crashing loudly on the floor all around her. Carter manages to push her out of the way of a rogue espresso machine right before it kills her. It flies out the window and lands in the street, where it somehow does not take out the Sheriffmobile.
