At said lair, there's a folder full of police records for the Carnival of Crime. That one lady I don't know the name of is "Raia, Ellen Detroit." Finally! We cut over to the circus set, where Ruvi, Raia, and Rollo find their records hilarious. Then Max tosses them all in a fire. Vince is a little whiny about hanging out with criminals, but Max tells him about Alice in Wonderland. See, Vince is Alice and everyone else is Wonderland. Vince complains about his family, and we get a flashback to Vince and Dana canoodling on the couch. And Vince got an email from Orwell. Not a very interesting flashback, honestly.
Max thinks Vince should quit complaining about the past. Vince claims he knows how to solve crimes, so all he needs to do is "pin one of the Chess murders on Fleming." Seems like that would be easier if you were trained to frame people. Maybe he should work with one of the crooked cops he knows.
Flashback Vince calls Marty to tell him he's going out to the train yard. As Vince heads for the door, Trip wants him to play Monopoly. Vince demurs on the grounds that it's 2:00 AM, which is a valid reason in my opinion. Trip tries to bet with his father, offering that if he rolls a 10, Vince will stay. Vince doesn't go for it, but Trip rolls anyway. In slow motion, the dice show a 10. Vince leaves. Back in present day, Vince adds a picture of Dana to his wall of crazy news clippings.
Fleming walks into a room full of people in tuxedos playing craps and roulette. This show has a lot of casino nights, doesn't it? Peter announces that they all have a thousand dollars in credit courtesy of ARK. Dice also enters and computerizes the whole situation. Fleming is at the craps table, so she mouths "five" at Fleming, and that's what he rolls. Ditto "nine." She stands next to him, and he asks if he knows her. She calls him "Peter." He misses a roll, then she picks up the dice, blows on them, and says the magic word is "dice." He shakes the dice around and then rolls a six. He's shocked! In slow motion! And then we see a woman running up some stairs and the dice explode. Kaboom!
Title Card: "GOD IS THE DICE." Elliott Gould (!) asks Peter if he remembers anything. Gould appears to be his personal physician. Fleming is full of ennui. Gould asks, "Any visits from our friend?" There have been none. He pronounces Fleming to be physically fit. Marty enters with a picture of the woman from last night. He recommends cancelling the T.R.A.C.E. launch. No deal. Wait. I mean "No dice." Ha! Fleming wants Dice found. "Find her. I don't care how. Bring her to me."
