Recapper: You and me both. Where are my stunning vampires? There should be vampires.
Stephanie: You want me to go all Darla?
Recapper: Would you start with the show's writing staff?
Darla: Where else? Now close your eyes...
Recapper: I'm going to my happy place.
George: So, I'll take it from here. Jim jumps to the dry cleaner. It's only 2 blocks away, so I drive over and tell him to get out because the cops are on the way.
Recapper: Dammit George, way to drag me back from my happy place. This is exactly what I'm talking about it. You heard about the robbery in progress FROM THE DAMNED POLICE SCANNER. You send Jim off, and then you go find him to tell him the cops are on the way, but the only reason you knew about the crime is because THE COPS ARE ON THE WAY.
George: Chicks can be so touchy.
Recapper: I'm starting to see why you're twice divorced.
Recapper: What's the matter -- did I get a little bit of truth on you?
George: Why are you so mad at me?
Recapper: I'm mad at you George, because when the show first started, you were as awesome as Katie and now you're just a big sinkhole in every episode. I can't take this. I'm not even letting you tell the rest of this supposed A-Plot. I'm summing it up.
So, obviously, some bad guys knock over a dry-cleaning establishment. Jim thwarts the robbers from harming the proprietor, by knocking them out cold. George warns him to leave. He does, but George doesn't get out before the cops get there, because he's wiping Jim's prints off a make-shift weapon? The cops bust in and George is afraid he's going to be arrested, but he's instead declared a big, damned hero. He's giving interviews on the news and getting kudos from the cops the next day, and gets a big, giant head. The whole thing is but a meaningless contrivance, so that Jim can be jealous and resentful and the boys can have falling out. They do. It's ridiculous. Meanwhile, Cordero figures out that it was Jim who pulled him out of the van wreck last week, and he becomes Jim's substitute best friend. You read me right. That sullen, nasty cop is suddenly the nicest, cheeriest guy in the world. Blergh.
Meanwhile, as Jim digs further into the robbery, he finds that one robber got away, not only with cash, but with some conductor uniforms, as well. And in Metropolis, bank money isn't transported by armored car, but by train. Does that even happen, anywhere? I'm not researching it -- not for this show -- but on its face, it sounds preposterous, particularly since it seems to me like Metropolis is L.A. Am I right, West Coasters? I'm a Boston Brahmin (without the Brahminity) who has never been further west than Chicago, so what do I know? Anyhow, after Jim goes to the wrong train station, (because he can't be a super-hero without his not-so-faithful sidekick), he goes to George and they mend their fences. Jim then goes to the right train station, stops a frigging MOVING TRAIN even though it's been well-established that he can't even stop an automobile without letting it run him over first and then grabbing the under-carriage. Bad guys thwarted. Case closed. Ta freaking dah.
