How is it that McDonald's appears to have trademarked the word "smile"?
Police crime scene, otherwise known as Danielle's car. An officer is explaining to the detective that Danielle was killed by a rifle shot to the head. "Sniper?" asks the cop. "Not exactly," says the cop, saying the range was only three feet. So "no," then.
Interrogation room. The older cop comes in to tell Skeet that Danielle's dead. Skeet looks upset for a moment, then lays into the cop, saying that if they hadn't held him there, he might have been able to save her. He gets his jacket and goes to leave, but the cop tells him he isn't going anywhere. Skeet reminds the cop that he was at the police station when Danielle was killed, so he can't possibly be a suspect. The cop reminds him that he seemed to know an awful lot about a murder before it even took place, and he should plan on being there for a while. But here comes the cavalry! And you can't spell "cavalry" without "Alva," who's got a writ of habeas corpus for Skeet, and the cop grudgingly lets Skeet go. But you know what? I'm guessing this isn't over. Notice the annoyed way the cop tosses the papers aside. Thank you, Gruff Detective.
Diner. Angel of Death is listening to some song on his headphones. Cop car pulls up outside. Angel gets up to go, but he didn't see the car or anything; he just seems to be ready to leave. And he didn't see the cop inside either, but he bumps into him right now.
Back at the police station, Skeet thanks Keel for getting him out of there, but figures Keel's the reason he was in there in the first place. And Keel rats out Evelyn for ratting out Skeet. "I'm sorry about Danielle Franklin," says Keel, but Skeet's unimpressed, saying that if Keel had been straight with him, she might still be alive. Their happy reunion is cut short by one of the detectives, who says they caught the guy who killed Danielle; he had a pocketful of her credit cards. They go into a room looking into the interrogation room with a two-way mirror so they can see the guy, despite Skeet's protests that there's no point since he's never met the guy (although he can't really know that, can he?). Given this episode's ham-handed attempt to pretend that the Angel of Death had been captured, was there anyone who was surprised when the camera panned over to reveal that they'd arrested the wrong guy? Keel asks to interview the guy, but the cop says no.
Leaving the station, Keel says something about petitioning for an interview, but Skeet's still pretty pissed, and Keel asks if he's having "second thoughts" about his "new job." Skeet says he thinks they're just looking for different things. Are we sure these two aren't boyfriends yet? And Keel blurts out the most recent information about the sixth GIN person, although he advises against Skeet tracking him down, and even goes so far as to apologize for withholding information from Skeet, but he thought it might be detrimental to him. Skeet reminds Keel that it would be his own problem if that were the case. And by this point I've already downgraded my initial rating of this episode just for the sheer volume of blah-blah going on. Is this what recapping The West Wing feels like?
