At the Recriminations CafÃ©, Claire is telling Daniel that Fey actually used to call the house and play the music from The Music Box of Infidelity to her over the phone. But she really thought Bradford had ended it. "So when did he?" Daniel asks. Claire thinks. She's been in the joint just under a month, so maybe...."Six weeks?" she offers. Daniel is shocked that Bradford had been having an affair with Fey, unbeknownst to Claire, for TWENTY YEARS. How could she not realize this was going on? "Well, Daniel, I don't know if you've noticed, but I drink quite a lot," Claire says, both wearily and dryly. She then warns him that, just as she takes after her own alcoholic father, she's concerned that Daniel is exhibiting the same philandering qualities that Bradford has. "I see him in you, Daniel. It destroyed our family," she tells him. Oh, lady, you don't even know. Daniel asks what finally made Bradford put an end to the affair, and Claire considers this, and finally says that she will tell him, IF he gives her a sip of his wine. And Daniel actually DOES IT. Oh, Daniel. Of course, Claire's "sip" is everyone else's "guzzle," and she downs the glass in one gulp. "I made him choose," she says when she's done. "She wasn't going anywhere on her own. So she and I went over to his office and we stood there in front of that big, over-compensating desk of his and told him to make a choice." Daniel asks who he chose. "Well. One of us is here. And one of us is dead. So you figure it out," his mother tells him. Well, that's not mysterious and vague at all! There's been some speculation on the forums that maybe Claire "killed" Fey and Bradford is covering it up for her, and I actually think that's a very strong possibility, especially considering Claire's attitude in this scene.
Over to a more pleasant luncheon with Betty and Henry. She notes that he was on her floor a lot today, and he flirts back that it has absolutely nothing to do with her -- he likes to make the rounds! "Let the employees know that accounting has its eye on them," he jokes, and then feeds her some cucumber roll. It is, of course, at this very moment that Walter makes his appearance. "I DON'T THINK SO," he yells at them and Betty, of course, spits out her roll in shock, because she has no composure when people surprise her with a mouth full of food. "What are you doing here?" she asks. Instead of explaining that he's suddenly turned into some kind of really sad-sack stalker, Walter just yelps, "Who is THIS GUY?" Dude, people go to lunch with coworkers all the time. Okay, maybe you don't let your coworkers FEED YOU, but still. Betty stammers that it's Henry, from the third floor, but Walter isn't really paying attention. He just wants to know why she hasn't returned his calls! Betty stammers that she's been busy. Also, he's annoying her. "Maybe I should get the check," Henry offers. Listen, if my boyfriend tracked me down at work to find out why I hadn't called him back in two hours, I would be so aggravated. I will call you back when I get around to it. Maybe I'm BUSY. Oh my God, maybe I'm Daniel. Anyway, Walter is totally freaking out and Betty finally tells him that he's embarrassing her. At this, Henry discreetly gets up to the pay the bill, but Walter announces that he -- Henry -- should stay. "I'LL GO. I EMBARRASS her," he announces, embarrassingly. And he storms off. That is the kind of manly assurance that the ladies love. Betty looks a bit gobsmacked, as Henry just looks at her sympathetically. If Henry wasn't already obviously totally in love with her, I imagine this may have raised a teeny tiny red flag for him.
