Cain hits on Orwell, saying he thinks they've met. He insists that she join him in the kitchen. Isn't he a wine steward? Can they really invite people into the kitchen? I've always had the impression that the kitchen was where the back-of-house people were busy making food, and that they wouldn't necessarily appreciate the waiters bringing dates back there.
The kitchen is empty, which seems odd. Didn't that one guy claim that they were completely booked up? Cain surreptitiously grabs a knife, and blocks Orwell's attempted tasering. He walks slowly at her with a knife, and she wallops him with some metal kitchen stuff. He seems to get somewhat annoyed, but not deterred. He lifts his knife, but it gets caped. Caped! Cain throws a knife at Vince, and Vince catches it and throws it back. It's all in the reflexes! They fight.
Orwell runs out to the dining room and takes Portman's food away. I feel like she's engaged in some sort of farce at this point.
Cain and Vince scuffle. There's a stove involved. Each of them holds the others' face near it. There's plenty of time to wonder why this kitchen is completely empty.
Fleming can tell that something is going wrong, since Portman is flagrantly unpoisoned. He goes back to the kitchen to find Cain hogtied and with sear marks on his face. The Cape stands triumphantly in the (completely deserted and unused) kitchen. A cape-swoosh and a smoke bomb later, and he vanishes. WHOOSH! Shouldn't Vince have done something about making sure Cain got arrested? Or is there no point, since the whole police force is under Fleming's control?
At an official court session-y thing, Peter Portman announces that he's not approving Peter Fleming's application. He gets a standing ovation, which can't be all that common in city planning meetings like that.
Dana joins Trip on the roof. She tells him that "they" can never take away their memories of Vince. "We know the man he was." And on the top of the tallest skyscraper in the city, The Cape stands proudly, wondering how he's going to get down.
