Cliff returns home with the busted convertible and assures Travis he took real good care of it. Travis, of course, runs outside to see his poor tarnished car and he races back by the pool, tackles Cliff, and starts to choke him to death. Tess tries to pry Travis off, but she gets a backhand for her troubles. Travis continues choking until Tess fires her gun into the air. She makes the requisite "I'm from Texas" joke about why she has a gun, and she tells Travis that while she'll put up with a loser, a liar, a cheat, or a moron, she won't put up with a choker/abuser. ...Go Tess? Whatever, I'm too busy being happy to have the Sharon Lawrence I know and love on this show to care.
Back at the club, Jessie Jo's closing up as Nikki comes back again, this time more receptive to the advice of an aging drag queen. She says she had one of the best days of her life today (carousing in the desert and humping a vandalizing sociopath, she doesn't mention), but still all she wants is a drink. Jessie Jo's sage advice competes with Augustana on the soundtrack as he offers her a couch to crash on and all the restrictions she could ask for. Augustana ends up winning, but seeing as your recapper just saw them perform a free concert last week and thought they were pretty good, I'll give it a pass.
Cliff and Tess have a scene that's alternately warm and creepy, as she laments having gone through too many Travises in her life, Cliff says he just wants her to be happy with a good man, and she assures him he's the only man in her life. See, it's that last one that gets you.
Johnny makes a late night trip to Liza's garagabatory, enthusing about how his life has taken a turn for the better tonight. Then he gets a glimpse of the back of Liza's sweatshirt in a mirror and sees it reads "08Nova." He calls her on it, and she says she was Eddie's friend and she knows he was murdered -- she saw it. She saw Cliff and Greta kill Eddie. DUN!
