Watchtower. Clark walks into the hub to find Tess sitting at her desk, looking through a photo album. When Tess gets up, you can see buttcrack. I didn't go looking for it, but I just happened to pause the screen there. Ladies, hipster pants are flattering, but they do require a certain measure of caution. Tess is surprised he's there; she didn't expect to see him until the next day at work. But since he's there... "Someone broke into the mansion and left this with a gift tag," Tess says, handing him the ballerina. "It said 'Happy birthday, Tess.'" Clark looks confused, so Tess tells him it's not her birthday. I like how nobody acts even a little surprised when someone breaks into the mansion now. Tess, visibly shaken, tells him about the nightmare and waking up to find the ballerina in the library. Clark turns it on, and Tess immediately silences it. She shows him the photo album (with actual snaps of a young Cassidy Freeman), hoping she'd find a picture of the music box. "But this just reminds me why I don't like going home for Christmas," she says, her expression pained. Clark turns the figurine over and peels off the birthday tag. Underneath, there's another tag, torn faded letters. Clark scans the tag into the computer, enhances it, and comes up with "Property of St. Louise's Orph[anage]." It doesn't ring a bell for Tess, so Clark uses his Google-Fu and pulls up an article about the article and the woman who runs it. "She's like the Mother Teresa of needy children," Clark says. "They call her Granny Goodness." Wasn't Mother Teresa the Mother Teresa of needy children?
