Flashback: Malcolm shows Bridget the demand notice he found among John's possessions. It's for a storage facility. She whips it out of her purse and gives it to She-Cop. "Why don't you try, here. [...] Maybe this is where he has Gemma."
Why-Oh-Why, Wyoming: I like you people, so I'll make this brief. Guyliner tells Jimmy he knows he's taken down Macawi-types before. Jimmy: "My old buddy, Silas Turnbull..." whose nickname was Bull, because with that name and at 263 lb. what else would you call him? Blah blah blah sex slave smuggling-cakes. Once upon a time, Bull charged at Jimmy, who took him down with one shot. DUH MATADOR. Guyliner knows this is a set up and that Jimmy plans to kill him. Jimmy: "I'm sorry, Vic. I didn't want it to come to this." And then the nicest thing happens. Guyliner says he'd had two agents tailing them. Jimmy says, "You're bluffing." But he's totally not bluffing. Yay! Guyliner is not too dumb to live. Jimmy is arrested. Guyliner tells him he's got a lot of questions, "Starting with -- what really happened the night that Bridget Kelly ran?" And then -- we get to leave Why-Oh-Why Wyoming behind for the rest of 2011, and return to the real story. Hurrah.
Park Ave: Juliet is curled up on her bed, when she gets a Skype call. She sits up, sniffs, wipes a tear from her weepy looking eyes. It's NNBBFF, who wants to make sure she's okay. Juliet lies that she is, but it's clear she's been crying. NNBBFF persists. Finally, Juliet says, "We had sex." NNBBFF: "You had sex with Mr. Carpenter?" Juliet: "But I didn't want to." NNBBFF: "Yeah you did. I mean, you were totally throwing yourself at him." Juliet: "No, you don't understand. He forced himself on me." She covers her mouth as a sob escapes. And...
Sidebar: Okay, I'm really torn on what I think happened here, and what I want to have happened here. The thought that Juliet could be lying sickens me. The last thing real life rape survivors need is yet another cry-wolf storyline. Plus, her flirting aside, she does seem to be trying to straighten out her act. I mean she's made a public school friend. She isn't out partying. She is consistently pleasant with Bridget. But would I rather have her have been truly raped, or just claiming she was? I mean, ugh. What a choice. Then there's my inner fangirl. I love Jason Dohring. I don't want him to be playing a rapist. Then there's my inner fangirl's evil twin. Jason Dohring would play a great rapist. He'd knock such a storyline out of the park. Then again, he'd also do a fine job playing an innocent man, falsely accused. I just... I give up. Instead, I'm going to adjust my tinfoil hat, and clutch to my bosom, my favorite bit of crazy-fan speculation I've read thus far: Maybe Mr. Carpenter ALSO has an evil twin and that evil twin raped Juliet. La la la. I can't hear you. La la la.
