Jane still wants to move back to Indiana, because the Drake keeps trying to kill her. Gavin convinces Henry that the best way to keep Jane in New York is to ask her to marry him, so Olivia takes Henry shopping for giant diamond rings. Nona also wants to keep Jane in New York, because her till-now immobile and silent grandmother got out of her wheelchair and told her to keep Jane around. It turns out Jane and Nona have some sort of mystical attachment to the building, and it's not going to be happy to let go of either of them.
Victor Shaw still has Gavin's box, and he's stepped up his campaign of intimidation by stalking Olivia and telling her he wants to help her break out of the gilded cage Gavin has her in. I dunno, it's a pretty damn nice cage. Olivia lures Shaw to a benefit for the symphony, then poisons him with her lipstick. Scott keeps him alive so Kandinsky (oh yeah, Scott helped him escape the hospital) can torture him until he tells Gavin where the box is.
Speaking of Scott, he's kind of peeved about this dumb deal he made with Gavin, because now the money he owes is tattooed in fire on his chest. Which looks like it stings. He's also not in the mood for Brian Leonard punching him in the face because Brian thinks Scott slept with Louise — and because Brian thinks Louise slept with Scott, he thinks it's a great idea to sleep with Alexis, which is what Alexis was gunning for with all of her underhanded dealings and breaking and entering. She's trouble, that one.
Jane and Henry get home from Olivia's symphony benefit, and he's going to propose to her upstairs, but first she has to help Nona find her grandmother, who's regained the power of walking and is in the basement. Down there Jane and Nona accidentally open up the mosaic in the floor, revealing a staircase down into who knows where, and Jane thinks it's a perfectly awesome idea to go trotting off down there. Bye, Jane!
Previously on 666 Park Avenue: Kandinsky tried to kill Henry. Dr. Scott sold his soul to Gavin. Jane is crazy and Victor Shaw wants revenge on Gavin. Also, poor disloyal Sam lost his head. RIP Sam.
1998. Gavin, looking exactly the same as he does now (he must use the same face cream as the people on Revolution), holds the elevator for a young woman, Melanie. She is visiting her mother, Lottie, on the tenth floor. Gavin says Lottie is one of his favorite residents, and remarks on how excited she must be to become a grandmother. He asks how Melanie's unborn daughter is doing. Melanie does not recall telling Gavin about the contents of her uterus. He says it was a lucky guess. No, it was the devil!
Lottie, of course, is Nona's grandmother, who was motionless and silent in her wheelchair last time we saw her. Melanie mentions running into Gavin in the elevator, and Lottie asks suspiciously if Melanie spoke with him. She tells Lottie about how Gavin guessed the baby's sex. Lottie gets angry and tells Melanie she told her not to speak to Gavin and that she shouldn't come to the Drake while she's pregnant. Melanie says she worries about Lottie living alone, but her mother pulls her to her feet and tells her not to come back until after the baby is born. She says she doesn't want her around the bad things in the building, which of course alarms Melanie, who says she doesn't want her mother to stay there with the bad things, but Lottie says she can't leave the Drake. Lottie hustles Melanie out the door.
Melanie takes the elevator down, but of course it jerks to a stop. (Why does ANYONE ever get on these elevators?!) The lights go out. And then Melanie doubles over in pain, yelling for help. The screen fades to white on a baby's cry. Present day in Lottie's apartment, where Lottie is staring motionlessly out the window.
Henry and Jane's. Jane is fiddling with a dress while Henry does up his tie and says Gavin and Olivia want them to ride to the ceremony together -- Henry is getting an award for being the Gracie Mansion Hero. Jane seems particularly unenthused, probably because when we last saw them, Henry was calling her a raving loony-bird. Jane's all, uh-huh, that's great, sweetie, and she stares off into middle distance while Henry recaps his heroic night. He finally notices that she's basically catatonic and asks her what's wrong.
Jane says she's really happy for how well Henry is doing, but after what happened on Halloween, she wants to go home. She doesn't feel safe in the Drake, but Henry steamrolls over her objections, saying Jane was the one who convinced him to get over his fear and move to New York, "and now things are going great for us!" Uh, things are demonstrably not great for Jane, dude. Even if you discount how her great-grandfather tried to axe-murder her on Halloween, there's the fact that she doesn't have a job and spends all day mucking around in the filthy basement and staring obsessively at old newspaper clippings. She's basically a refugee from Hoarders. Rather than arguing all this again, Jane says they should go so they're not late for the mayor.
