She Wanted To Groove So I Grooved Her

Not solely because this takes place in the middle of the night, but I always thought I would be good at this job. Just indulging someone who never stops needing to be indulged, and cannot even see light on the frequency where you have zero respect for them and never will. "Yes, you're very pretty." How is that not everyone's favorite activity and most wanted job? It should be like: Teacher, Fireman, Astronaut, Nurse, Hollywood Assistant.

Then giftwrapper. Like at Macy's or something. That is a fucking sweet gig. I remember one time my best friend showed up with invitations to a party that needed a lot of assembly and I got the crazy eyes and I was like, "How did you know I would do this for you?" And he goes, "Isn't folding paper and taping things together, like, your favorite thing to do?" Yeah -- shit yeah -- but nobody needs to ... know that. There's no reason for you to have like, intuited that.


Ray won't talk to Abby yet. Terry will find beat-up Daryll in their metaphorical mailbox, while Mickey's doing all the drugs with Bunchy he can think of, and Ezra will pray all night. In the end, when Ray sees the picture of his father's latest murder victim, the priest, he can't help but smile.

But first, Lena drops off an envelope at Chloe's with exactly, precisely the amount of money she needs for her operation, so we end up with Chloe, just completely losing it in her laundry room because, for once, the fixer was actually able to fix something. To change a life completely; to pick a woman up bodily by the throat, and then set her gently down in her solution.


Why's Ray smiling? You might be surprised. Mickey involves himself in the industry, Ezra throws an ill-starred fundraiser, and we finally meet the amazing FBI agent that's behind Mickey's sudden release.
