Paris Hotel Bar: Shiv, wearing a necklace that weighs more than she, sits at the bar, starts to light a cigarette, and then changes her mind. Tyler walks in and heads to a table where a beautiful brunette is waiting. Shiv, and her dress -- WHICH MAY ACTUALLY BE CUT DOWN TO HER NAVEL -- don't sweat that. She strolls over and tells him she misses him. Instead of being all, "Excuse me, I'm obviously on a date here," Tyler, in a cold voice, says he's been busy with work. Shiv asks to borrow him for a moment. Beautiful Brunette is not jealous, because she remembers that back in 1997 or so, Buffy had breasts. Shiv apologizes and explains that things ended the way they did the other night, because Shiv was sick. Besides, he's met Simone, who doesn't speak much English, but then again, she doesn't have to. Nice. What a creep. Shiv tells him she really likes him and felt a connection between them. Tyler: "Is that how you connect with people -- shove them out of your hotel room without a second thought?" Oh yeah, Tyler is a prick -- so I'm thinking a perfect foil for Shiv. On cue, Shiv's phone rings. She informs the unheard caller that she's hit a snag.
Beach House, Night: Bridget grabs her bag and tries to sneak out to destroy the evidence, but Henry finds her alone in the dark and assumes that she's there to resume their affair. They have one of those conversations that reveals nearly everything about their affair -- the kind someone should be eavesdropping on, but the show doesn't go there -- not yet. Instead, we get a flashback to last year, with Shiv and Henry making love in front of the fireplace. They seem happy and lovey dovey. Henry asks if she had trouble getting away. Shiv's no comes with a devious laugh. "Emergency work meeting. Olivia actually showed up at the restaurant. You should have seen the look in her eyes when he left me there, alone." Olivia. Ha. I KNEW IT! Henry, in his first likable moment thus far, looks shocked. "Wow. So happy birthday to you?" Shiv doesn't care. She'd rather be with Henry anyhow, because all her taste is in her mouth.
There's more snuggling, cuddling and Shiv wishes Henry would hurry up and finish his book. He reads her an excerpt of his City Burns. I like you people, so I'll spare you, except to say, I've heard better stories that started out with, "It was a dark and stormy night." Henry also notices a thick manila envelope addressed to Siobhan. She opens it as she says, "I'm not picky. I'll take presents from anyone." Inside there's a note which reads: "I miss you. Love, B." It, of course, accompanies the birthday necklace. Shiv tells Henry it's from an old friend. "We used to pass it back and forth on our birthdays," but makes clear she doesn't otherwise want to discuss it.
