Santos HQ. Annabeth is waiting for Leo as he leaves his meeting with Barry. She starts walking him toward the elevator, filling him in on his schedule for the Sunday talk shows. Which she indicates are the next day. When did it turn from Friday to Saturday? She looks quite perky, and he asks her if she ever gets tired. She tells him, "No," neglecting to point out how tired she was when she was doped up on drugs and booze. He asks her how it is that she's so perky, and she tells him it's because she loves her job, which is the kind of job she never expected to have. They enter the elevator, and Leo asks her what time it is. She grins and hands him back his watch. She keeps sneaking little sidelong glances at him. They discuss their plans. He's headed back to his hotel, she's headed home for a nice hot bath. And then he asks her if she feels like having dinner. It's clear to me that this is purely a friendly invitation to a colleague. She admits that she will have to eat, and he suggests that they get a quick bite. She smiles and says, "Thanks, but no." And then her chin quivers, and she turns to him with a fairly serious look on her face (serious for Annabeth, in any case), and says, "I just think it's better, while we're spending so much time together, that we try and keep our distance whenever possible." Leo: "'Keep our distance'?" Annabeth: "'Cause of the tension." The elevator doors open, and she walks out. Leo: "What tension?" Kristin Chenoweth was just lovely in that scene.
