Grove Hill: Damon lies like a rug to Henry that he's old pals with Uncle Snark. Seems Snark has helped Henry adapt to this brave new world. "Cars, computers, Match.com. There's so much to learn." Good old Uncle Snark has taught Henry how to warm up cold blood bank blood in the microwave, and even how to sort his whites. What a giver. Of course Snark expects something in return. Henry reports to him on The Others. The Others? Now I know the writers are just messing with me (or, okay, they're probably messing with
Boone Ian). In this instance, The Others are the other tomb refugees like Henry. They're out there and they're pissed. Henry though -- he's more mellow. He likes doing regular stuff like talking on his brand new cell phone. Hey, there's a call now. It's Uncle Snark. Before Henry can answer it, Damon grabs it, saying he wants to say hello. But he doesn't actually answer the phone, he just keeps holding it. Finally Henry asks if he isn't going to answer. From behind Henry's back, Alaric shakes his head no. Damon: You shaking me off, Meat? Sorry. Baseball season. Um... Henry looks from him to Damon. "What's going on?" When Damon doesn't answer, Henry vamps out and attacks Alaric. Sadly for him, Alaric has a trick up his sleeve, and by trick I mean stake. Henry falls to the floor, dead. That's all right, he didn't know Isobel, anyhow. Damon mocks his unlikely partner in crime: "Let's not kill anyone tonight," then pats Alaric on the shoulder and adds, "Your words. Just pointing that out." Oh goody! Alaric has chest hair. Just pointing that out.
Grill: Snark returns to the table and apologizes for his absence. Pearl wasted 145+ years frittering away in a tomb. Even though she may have the time, she doesn't have the patience for smalltalk. She wants to know why she should let Snark have the device. He reminds her he was way more awesome on Alias, but she missed the entire run of the series, so she remains unimpressed. He then tells her that he's connected. He can help her settle down into a white picket fence life. Pearl points out that the device doesn't work. Snark claims to want it for sentimental reasons.
