Packard house. Josie answers the door in her subservient French maid outfit, replete with un belle chapeau, oh la la, and discovers Mr. Eckhardt standing before her. Katherine appears behind her. Eckhardt expresses surprise at the invitation to Katherine's home, and as Josie attends to them, they prattle on about "art" and "money." Katherine asks why he killed her brother, and Eckhardt claims that he could find a reason to "kill for love." Katherine grabs Josie's hand and shows Eckhardt her manicured hands. Why? This I do not know. He kisses said hand and she flinches and walks away. While Josie listens from the kitchen, Katherine asks what Eckhardt would like in return for her giving him Josie. Katherine yells into the kitchen, "Josie, Thomas and I will have our main course now." Josie turns toward the camera, holding a tray with the head of a pig with an apple in its mouth. Ooooh, the stark imagery. From the same creative mind that put Juliette Lewis in a film as a carefree, learning-disabled teenager with a heart of gold. From the same creative mind that put Juliette Lewis in a film at all.
Evelyn Marsh (I know. I can't believe it either) sits in one of her many wooden rooms, blowing smoke rings and stubbing out her cigarette, until James crashes in through a sliding door and demands, "Why'd you do it?" He advances on her as she tries to tell him that he has to leave for his own safety, but he backs her to the couch and pushes heonto it. She admits to doing it all. Why? "For the money, out of fear, because I wanted to do it. Not exactly what you wanted to hear, is it, James?" And then they kiss again because they're bad, so bad, but Malcolm shows up behind James with some kind of blunt Clue weapon, spilling James onto the floor and pinning Evelyn against the couch. "He broke into the house. He was angry, he was crazy. He killed Jeffrey. And he came back to kill you." He continues on that she was ready for him, and that they'll tell the police, "You shot James. You shot him in the head." That would so be the least sacrifice available to right the many, many wrongs of this entire woeful subplot. But I'm not saying it wouldn't make for an excellent start.
