This is awesome: Clayton just stands there and stares at Tarzan, and finally he turns his head three inches to the left and stares out, mouth open, waiting for the music to finish swelling. Can you imagine if people acted like this in real life? It'd be creepy. Xena's kind of crying, for some reason, and Clayton's still looking almost over his shoulder, shocked that someone could hate him. He looks down, blinks. He looks at Tarzan, blinks. He backs away, blinks. His head wiggles a little from the shock and embarrassment. Dude, it's not like Clayton taught the kid little league or something. He shot his monkey-mom! Tarzan's still making the ugly face, and this scene has been eighteen minutes long! Clayton's eyes go real wide as he turns on his heels, dumbfounded, and walks away. Xena swallows, and tries to figure out what she should say, tries to talk herself into saying this next stupid line and the stupid line after that. But Tarzan leaps out of the way before she says anything, and pulls himself up into some tree somewhere, so Xena decides not to say anything after all.
Clayton's doing the walk of shame home. He gets into his SUV. He pouts. "No luck?" asks the henchman. "She's poisoned him against me," Clayton whispers. "How is Mr. Ingram enjoying his stay with us?" The henchman says that Ingram is literally climbing the walls. No, that would be Tarzan. He says he doesn't know how much longer they'll be able to hold Ingram. Wait, has he been staying at Greystoke for, like, two weeks? Clayton says they're holding Ingram for his own safety as a witness to murder. The henchman -- who's apparently not very good at henching -- says that Ingram never said he saw a murder. Clayton stares at him. "Didn't he?" he asks. The henchman, NOT GETTING IT, reminds Clayton that Ingram said Michael's death was an accident: "Matter of fact, he said he saw foster lunge at your nephew." Wait. Why do I feel like we've already seen this scene? Clayton lifts his hand and says, "No." He laughs. "That's not the way that I heard it. Perhaps we should talk to him again. Just to clarify the facts." Finally, finally, the henchman gets it.
