Hateful Jim Simile Break: anchor, nectar of the gods.
Next day. Julia calls the loft to tell them to join Alexis and Charles in the conference room that morning. We watch the (im)Clones get ready. Because Howie has evidently lost all use of his hands, Hateful Jim ties Howie's tie. I think he's trying to get a good look at where the nectar of the gods might flow from, so he can get his chalice from the palace ready. The teams arrive in the conference room, and Alexis greets them, sounding as tired as I feel. Martha blips onto a video screen and says good morning. "I'm here at Turkey Hill Road -- this is my old farmhouse." Yeah, your multi-million dollar, edged in gold, spangled with rubies "old" farmhouse. Martha continues, "I'm working on a project, so I won't be able to be in the city to see you in person." Yeah, Project HOUSE ARREST! Martha goes on that her house was the product of a vision that she and her husband had back when the world was young. The house was falling apart, and together, they saved it and made it into something beautiful. Sadly, as hard as it was to save the house, saving their marriage was even harder. That deep thought came from me, not Martha. Martha announces that in conjunction with a Westin Hotel marketing scheme that has something to do with renewing the body, mind, and spirit of their guests, each team will be given a suite to renovate with a particular theme in mind. "A lifestyle suite," Martha explains, "could be devoted to exercise. It can be devoted to love, but you have to have a vision!" Their judges will be Westin executives and Platinum Members of their Preferred Guests program. Martha reminds Matchstick of how dysfunctional they are and says that she's come up with a scheme for them. However, Charles and Alexis will have to discuss it with them since her anklet is telling her she's been in the fresh air long enough.
