Meanwhile, back at the ballroom, Brian and Adam are zipping up their pants and tucking in their shirts. Adam asks Brian what the hell he's doing in Pittsburgh: "You're too good for Pittsburgh. You should be in New York." Brian grins, "Yeah, but for what I get paid here, I have a loft the size of a city block. There I'd have a closet in Queens." Adam says that they're paying a lot more in New York than Brian thinks. Adam's twenty-seven, and he just bought a place in SoHo. Brian replies, "Wow. So, we're the same age." Oh, yeah. In dog years, maybe. Adam continues that there's an opening in his agency at Brian's level. Let me guess: fluffer? Adam hands Brian his card and says that he'd be more than happy to put in a good word for him. Brian smirks, "Is there anything else you'd be happy to do?" Didn't these two just have sex? Brian's memory certainly isn't what it used to be, is it? He unzips his pants and Adam goes down on him, anyway. Thoughtful of him.
Demon's Lair. Mike walks in and sees Demon sitting in the living room, in the dark. This tips Mike off to nothing. Instead, he good-naturedly turns on the light and asks Demon what's up. Demon says he's just been "thinking." In the dark. Silently. Now, if I walked into my house and found Coop sitting in the dark...well, first of all I'd jump, because he'd have scared the crap out of me, and second, I'd be all over him, asking what's wrong. No worries, though. Demon asks about Vic, and Mike says that he's fine "considering he just got out of jail." Mike walks over and gives Demon a kiss. Demon fesses up and says that he got a call from his ex-wife, Lori. She and her current husband are getting a divorce. Mike snarks, "You know, these straight couples just cannot make their marriages work." Especially if one of them's gay. Shut up, Michael. Demon says that Hank is pretty upset. So, shut up, Michael. Demon continues that Lori told Demon Hank won't speak to her; he's ditching class, and he's even quit the hockey team. Mike asks whether Hank's taking drugs. Demon replies that Lori doesn't think so: "He's just fucking angry." Which is what I remember of Hank. Demon blames himself. Mike asks whether Hank actually blames him, but Demon takes the fall: "It's because of me. This will make the second dad that he's lost." Mike slaps his hands together and asks what "the plan" is: "A real trip would accomplish a lot more than a guilt trip. Should I make a reservation?" Demon says that he already did, gesturing over to the suitcase standing right next to Mike. Which Mike totally missed. Demon figured he should get there as soon as possible. Mike cheerfully replies, "Who says you're not a great dad? Dropping everything at a moment's notice to fly across the country to be with your kid." Mike asks when he's coming back; Demon says he'll be back as soon as he can be. Mike points out that this will be the first time they're going to be apart since Mike moved in. Demon agrees. This scene is moving really, really slowly, for some reason. Mike shakes his head: "It's going to be weird, your not being here." Uh huh. Is there any more point to this scene? Mike makes his Master promise to miss him, and then gives him a big hug and a kiss, while Demon looks worried, worried, worried. That was sweet, but it would be even sweeter if I knew that Demon weren't coming back. But all good things come to those who wait.
