You know, at some point soon, this show is going to have to resolve this Tommy thing or give viewers credit for remembering the premise of the show, because we're getting about five hours' worth of previouslys to start the show, with clips from all three episodes so far. At this rate, the show will be nothing but previouslys by the end of the season. ["Sounds familiar." -- Sars]
Skeet's working in some kind of public records office, pretty much in the dark, forcing the cute blonde clerk to turn on a lamp for him and then start flirting with him, like, does Skeet have to have a "special connection" with every woman he comes in contact with on this show? And she remarks that he doesn't "give up," and he says, "I don't want to, but everything I need is blocked out" in frustration, and she asks if Skeet knows "his place of birth, mother's maiden name" which Skeet doesn't, and his cell phone goes off, which you'd think would earn A Look Of Stern Rebuke from the clerk, and I'm sure it would, if she didn't so clearly want to jump him. It's Evelyn on the phone, asking how the "witness interviews" are going, and Skeet hesitates to let us know he is Clearly Lying, but says he just has a few more left, and it's nice of Skeet to be already blowing off work at his new job. Evelyn says Keel's "getting anxious" and they haven't seen Skeet in a while, so she asks if everything's all right, and he says yes. Then he seems about to say something but thinks better of it and hangs up, and Evelyn works her eyebrows a little bit and looks contemplative. And back at The Office of Public Records and Horny Clerks, the most helpful city worker ever says that if this unnamed guy could be convinced to sign a release form, Skeet would have access to his records. "If I knew someone who could do that, I wouldn't be here," he points out, so of course this woman gives him an "I'll see what I can do" and Skeet just looks kind of befuddled and thanks her, like, CLOSE THE DEAL, SKEET.
Instead he's on a bus, brooding all over the back of the seat in front of him, checking out the people riding with him. There's a young woman reading a book, there's a middle-aged woman with bags of groceries, there's an older guy reading newspaper. The bus stops, and Skeet gets off and appears startled by something off-camera before he turns and sees a little girl with chalk-white skin and huge eyes, holding a green balloon, and she was clearly not on the bus earlier. They stare at each other for a good fifteen seconds; then the girl mouths the word "why" while Skeet continues to stare. The bus drives off, Skeet watching it, and then it blows up in a pretty cool explosion for a television show, especially since it throws Skeet back against a building and he flops to the ground, all broody unconscious.
