Henry and Jane discuss the secret basement room while Henry gets dressed. She says the secret room isn’t on the blueprints that she has, but she can tell that there’s been a renovation.
That’s weird. I don’t see a secret room on here full of dolls, ghosts and body parts.
She wants to get her hands on the ORIGINAL plans so she can continue to flesh out all the building’s creepy secrets.
Jane goes up to Gavin’s office and mentions the orchids that are displayed all over the building. The flowers are a memorial for the Dorans’ daughter Sasha, who died ten years ago that day. Jane offers to come back later, but Gavin says he’s focusing on the future and asks her what she wants. She confesses to smashing down the basement wall and finding the secret storage room. She asks him for the ORIGINAL building plans. Gavin’s all, why you wanna know that? Jane says she wants to find out why somebody wanted to bury the Drake’s history.
Gavin eyes the orchids sinisterly™ before saying he’ll look for the blueprints. In the meantime, he asks Jane to keep an eye on Olivia that day because she is all sad horns about her dead daughter. He says she gets “destructive” every year on this date. At that moment, Olivia comes waltzing in with two armfuls of shopping bags. Jane invites her to lunch. Olivia knows that Jane’s just doing it because Gavin asked her to, so she decides to be snotty and say she’ll meet Jane in the lobby in an hour, which will give her time to change out of her tacky poor people clothes.
