Chez Echolls. Haaron sits despondently in a bathrobe as Logan comes in with some dry cleaning and notes that dying will get you a lot of flowers. Haaron really looks to be taking this hard, which will happen when the last words you said to your wife were about leaving her with nothing. Should they meet in the afterlife, he'll totally be owed a kick in the balls for that one. Haaron takes Logan's hand and tells some story about how they fooled Lynn into wearing a mermaid costume around the zoo when Logan was ten. Well, having seen what Haaron does with his belt collection, I suppose it's not a surprise that that memory is in Haaron's "fond" column. The fact that a memory he classifies as "fond" is actually creepy and disturbing isn't really a surprise, either. Logan pulls his hand away and says he remembers that day, because on the way home he spilled a milkshake in the car and Haaron gave him a nosebleed. Haaron counters that Logan did it on purpose because he and Lynn wouldn't buy him a monkey, and when he went to grab Logan, Logan smacked his head against the window. As is usual with these contrary depictions, the truth probably lies somewhere in between. Less usually, the truth isn't too happy about it. Haaron changes the subject and asks if Logan's heard from his sister. Logan says she sent a telegram. "Heartbroken. Stop. Can't make it back from Sydney. Stop. Underwater scene shoot tomorrow. Stop. Entire crew said prayer for Mom. Stop. Love you. Stop." Well, Alyson, you don't get to say "Stop" to me. Because I certainly said it enough during the last two seasons of Buffy, but did you listen? Nooooo. I should note that the editing decisions here are kind of crappy -- there are too many cuts to Haaron, and considering that he looks like he's taken over for Lynn in the self-medicating department, they would have done better to focus on Logan. Logan snarks on show biz people, and mentions that his sister did send a wreath. Haaron wistfully talks about how much Lynn liked tulips. Yeah. Big ones, if you follow me. Also, let's just say Haaron's delivery while talking about the flowers is simply begging for me to call him Algernon. The doorbell rings, and Logan leaves Haaron to repent for his sins. That could take a while.
