Coal. Auggie's cooking when Marcello comes up to do his patented Marcello criticism of Auggie's work. He then starts harping on Auggie taking time to chat with Riley while on the clock. Marcello takes it a step further by objectifying Riley and talking about how he'd love to have her for dessert. Auggie warns him to stop, but Marcello is Marcello. Finally, Auggie snaps, as has been telegraphed all episode, and goes berserk on his boss, totally beating his ass. Violet comes up and shrieks for Auggie to stop as the other cooks try to hold him back. They finally peel him off, but not before Marcello is semi-unconscious.
Violet knocks on Auggie's door. He answers shirtless and is too listless to care whether or not Violet comes in. She tries her best to cheer him up. Auggie says he just lost control like he was out of his body. Violet looks like she wants to lick his wounds, literally. Suddenly, Auggie kisses her... then pushes her away. He shouldn't have, he says. Yes he should have, she says. They fall onto the couch together and start to tear each other's clothes off. Good for them.
Police station. Rodriguez looks gloomy as he gazes upon the evidence board for Syd's murder investigation. Another detective walks in with David's knife in an evidence bag. It was turned in by a construction worker, so we're sure it's the same knife. The size of the knife makes it consistent with Syd's wounds. Case closed! Please?
Eerie transition to a cemetery at night. David's on a knee at Sydney's grave. "I'm so sorry, Syd. I'm so sorry." What for? Crying over graves twice in one episode?
Jonah's on the phone accepting a date somewhere. He sounds almost as happy as he was at the bar with Kendra. Riley walks in and hears the end of the conversation. She tells Jonah what she did in regards to her friendship with Auggie. Jonah sounds guilty about it, saying he didn't tell her to do that. Plus, he reveals that it was indeed Kendra he has made plans to see, but he insists it will be professional and he needs to keep seeing her for the sake of this opportunity for his career. He and Riley end up out on the balcony together with no answers to their problem. "Where do we go from here?" Riley asks to Jonah, but it might as well be to no one in particular. After a minute or so of silence, Jonah just turns and walks off. Too bad you already screwed up with Kendra.
Ella walks in on Lauren studying in their apartment. She goes straight into apologizing for trying to buy Lauren and asking her to compromise her ethics. After resolving that all of the WPK stuff with Jesse is going to turn out fine, Lauren asks Ella if she plans to share her hooker theory about her with anyone. Ella says she hasn't told anyone and won't bring it up again. How convenient. Also, she'll be there to talk about it if Lauren wants to. Lauren says there's nothing to talk about. Glad we had this talk, roomie. To move on from this ordeal, Ella suggests a Julia Roberts marathon. Niiiiice. Lauren preemptively flips about further Pretty Woman jokes. Ella teases she was talking about Steel Magnolias. "Closest I come to that crying thing you people sometimes do." I knew it! She was too perfect. She's a robot, guys. This show just got interesting.
