Sobell: C- | Grade It Now!
It is necessary to suffer to be beautiful.

Back in the present, Nicky's looking at the glass and commenting, "She liked it fresh." Well, I suppose you've got to take a stand somewhere in your pee-drinking practices. Catherine just looks horrified. It's okay, Catherine. I feel the same way. I also feel that way about Botox, Restylane, and the idea of "freshening up" via invasive surgery, but I'm squeamish like that.

Back at the lab, Liam's just identified the feathers he found at the crime scene as belonging to the hyacinth macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus). The largest parrot in the world, it's an endangered species found in southern Brazil, eastern Bolivia, and northeastern Paraguay, and worth no small amount on the black market. It's also an extremely strong bird -- they apparently disassemble welded wrought-iron cases with ease -- and slow to mature. But that's not at all important to the discussion Liam and Sara are having. His nose is out of joint because Sara and Brass didn't involve him in the interrogation. Sara tells him that until he can cool the "You're in trouble" comments, he'll be typing feathers where nobody can see him. Oh, she does not. Sara just points out that Liam still needs to complete his solo, but he's doing a great job. Good God, Sara with people skills. Will wonders never cease?

Gil, meanwhile, is off making bombs, since it's been a while between workplace explosions. Actually, he's making smoke bombs so he can discover the uncapped electrical conduit that actually connects the two houses. This goes a long way toward explaining why the noise bothered Rory so much -- Beckman's speakers were right over the conduit on his side. It also explains the fumigant in Rory's urine. And that explains how Rory had fumigant in his urine without ever stepping into the house. "So you devised the experiment to prove he was lying," Sara says. "Exactly. But he was telling the truth," Gil says. "So now what?" Sara asks.

So now Brass talks to the exterminator guys again, what with them being the last ones to see Beckman alive. The younger one (Ted) is all, "We saw him walk away. His car was in the shop or something? He was staying down at the motel down the street?" The balder one reveals that Beckman was heading back toward the house following Ted's release of the gas, "so I gave him a lift back to the motel. That bird crapped in my truck." Gil perks up at this, and determines that the bird was blue. We also find out Beckman should have been staying at the Four Aces. Then Gil asks, "Does it ever bother you that you make your living killing insects?" Both men look baffled. Heh.
