Mike: "I am only slightly enjoying this wine, Major Mendez was correct."
Jessica: "I think you should sleep in the guest room."
Mike: "I was going to take the couch."
Jessica: "Um. No. Definitely the guest room. And have some more wine."
JULIA DIAZ, PO-PO
Saul goes to see this intense lady Julia that may have had a child with Peter Quinn. He gives her a fake name and pretends to be with the IRS, which -- even though you have probably pieced together by this point how I feel about Peter Quinn -- is smart. He does have a bit of that deadbeat-dad, tax-lien quality. Especially now that we've seen his terribly sad, scary apartment.
As far as Julia's saying, she and "John" split up four years ago, after John Jr. was born. And that, my friends, is all she's saying. Did I mention that she is about the fiercest person we've ever seen on the show? Like Aileen Margaret Morgan would look at this lady and be like, "Not before I've had my coffee, thanks."
Saul: "Could you just tell me John's last name, maybe?"
Julia: "I can confirm it for you, no problem."
Saul: "Okay, I should just go. You're giving me, Saul Berenson, the willies."
Julia: "Watch your ass, whoever you are."
Jessica wakes up, her children piled around her -- after all, they're in a safehouse waiting to be killed by terrorists -- and after about three seconds she's in Mike's room dropping her clothes, and snaking her hand immediately under the sheets. I knew, it's so weird that we know this, but don't we know this? I said aloud, "She is going for the dick straight away. It's her signature move." And then she did.
You know, I can't think of another person I don't actually know -- know, um, fairly well -- that I would be able to predict something like that. Jessica Brody, hats off to you. Not only for gettin' in there and really goin' for it, but also: You deserve at the very least some sex with Mike Faber.
Most gloriously of all, while all this is happening, Nick's at his house, alone, enjoying some TV and cereal in the middle of the night. For probably the first time in a decade. I wonder what he's thinking about? If we believe his story, he's probably just vegging out and it's very cute to see him curled up like that. But if any part of his story is untrue, then watching him live out these last hours -- alone and satisfied -- is not really all that cute at all.
