Dana interviews the public urination guy. He was living in the train yard, and he is happy to tell her about seeing Vince get kidnapped. He insists that Vince wasn't Chess. And "all the yard boys saw it." Unfortunately for Dana, she goes straight to Marty.
Gregor has more stories about the cape. Some say it's Egyptian, and some say it was used by alchemists. Some say it was the cape used by Merlin. Or Jack the Ripper. Me, I say it's mostly CGI and bears a suspicious similarity to the one used in the Spawn movie. Gregor claims to have been reformed by Russian justice. Vince wants to talk about how those people were killed. "I'm thinking only a master magician could use a card ... as a weapon." Oh, I've got that book! Cards as Weapons, by Ricky Jay. It's really good!
Gregor observes that Vince is obviously a cop, and he's a little hurt that Max would just hand the cape over to a police officer. Then he turns on Vince, snarling, "You're just me with a badge!" Well, the good news is that he doesn't even have a badge anymore. Vince threatens Gregor, and Gregor smoke-bombs. Whoosh! He's gone! Vince runs out the door after him, even though Max tells him that it isn't his job. "As long as I'm wearing the cape, it is!" shouts Vince, completely forgetting that he's not technically wearing the cape right now.
Title Card: "THE SHOW MUST GO ON." Vince goes to an electrical box he's using as a closet and takes out his gear. Orwell points out that Gregor obviously wants him to go after him. And she thinks that Gregor's palm-reading skills, combined with his ability to know that Vince is a cop, could lead him to Vince's family. She may be under the impression that Gregor really has psychic powers. And maybe he does. I'm not really sure about the rules of this show. The cape is apparently so powerful that it can pull doors off of cars, so we're clearly not in a purely realistic world. And I think the theme of this episode is that the cape has some kind of magical power to corrupt its user? So maybe Gregor really is psychic. Why not?
Dana walks through a parking garage. There are footsteps. And noises. Vince watches from a corner. Travis startles her and she drops her box of files. She complains a little about being a single mom. Travis offers to take Trip to a ball game or something. Vince is sad that his wife is moving on. Poor glum superhero. Then Vince leaves, because he realizes that Gregor probably isn't after his family after all. In fact, this may have been a cheap excuse to try to make the two plots merge.
