I found this scene to be really quite odd. Keith gets a desperate call from the Widder Dean. She's panicked because she can hear someone rifling around downstairs, and she has sequestered herself and her kids upstairs. She didn't call the police because Keith is closer and competent. See, she knows he's closer because when he stopped by with Backup, he mentioned that he was only ten blocks away. I found that a strange comment to make at the time, but it had to be a setup for this.
Anyway, I was starting to think that the Widder was setting a trap for Keith. Then, as he creeps up to the house dressed like a cat burglar, black knit skullcap and all, I get even more worried. The door is standing wide open, and a hooded character walks out, carrying something. Keith bangs him on the back of the head, and the intruder drops the frozen turkey he's carrying and falls on his face. Keith rolls him over and, oh lord, it's the zombie formerly known as Richard Grieco.
Inside the house, Grieco is smacked back to consciousness by Keith's light touch. Keith tells the Widder to call the cops. "Yeah," Freako mutters, "give 'em a call -- I'm sure they'd love to hear all the fun and games my ex has been up to." Freako's hand is shaking, and at first, I was like, "Dude, what is WRONG with Richard Grieco? He's emaciated and grey and now he has the shakes?" But then when Keith makes the meth addict comment later, I realized that was just part of Freako's role. Of course, there's still the possibility that he's a method actor. Get it? Meth-od? Anyway, Freako threatens to tell the cops about the kidnapping and bone marrow stealing that both Keith and the Widder were involved in. Keith reminds Freako that he wasn't forced to sign the papers, and that he also got some cash and a Porsche in the bargain. Well, the Porsche just got repossessed because, since the Dean died, the Widder hasn't been able to keep up with the car payments or the money she owed her ex. Freako's bone marrow son comes downstairs to hug his father. The other kid -- Gram, the goth one -- stalks downstairs and off into another room. Keith watches the Widder watch him worriedly. Freako decides that it's time for him to leave, and suggests that he and his son go to a Lakers game next week. He clutches at himself before taking some flowers out of a crystal vase, saying, "There's that vase." Freako leaves with the vase. Okay, random! The vase looks like a Target special, which, don't get me wrong, I love Target. I grew up in Minneapolis, where Target was born, and going there was soothing and fun and a damn good haul, but it's not the place to buy the kind of crystal vase you can trade on the street for crystal meth.
