At the club, Henry is very drunk and he apologizes to Jane for telling Brian she thinks the Drake is haunted. Then he tells Jane that they’ll be together forever and he loves her. Jane’s all jazzed up and wants to go home immediately.
At the Drake, Councilman Edwards is meeting with Gavin. He says something to the effect that he hired Gavin’s boy, so where’s his compensation? Gavin says that Henry IS his compensation. They go back and forth, and it turns out that what Gavin really wants is a shot at the Greenpoint Towers project. Edwards would love to help, but he already promised it to someone else who “understands” that what he needs is more than money. Well, if anyone knows about needing something more than money, it would be Gavin, right? Gavin gets his signature sinister™ look and you know that Edwards is not long for this world.
Brian sits at a table at the club watching Louise and Alexis dance. He takes a shot and gets up to tell Louise he wants to leave. Alexis tells him to loosen up and he looks at her like “shut up, devil woman.” He drags Louise off while Alexis watches.
Olivia sits on a bench by the river and reads Sasha’s note. She takes out a gold lighter and sets the note on fire, but before it burns up, we see an excerpt that says “HE’S EVIL.” We see that the park bench is dedicated to “Sasha Doran 1984-2002.”
Back at the Drake, Gavin is walking the councilman to the elevator. The councilman says he’s sorry he can’t help Gavin, but he’d be nowhere without his word. Gavin says yes, Edwards is a “paragon of integrity.” Next thing you know, Gavin is shoving Edwards down the empty elevator shaft. Damn, I feel bad for the maintenance people in that building.
Some doorman – and I guess doorman is not the correct term. Probably concierge is better, thanks, commenter chaosbutterfly – who’s not Tony is up when Henry and Jane get home. He tells them that Gavin wants to see Henry right away, even though it is two o’clock in the morning.
Jane goes up to the apartment alone and of course runs into the possible ghost girl again. OMG, it would be so annoying to have possible ghost children running around. It’s bad enough I have to put up with real children and their goddamn scooters all over the place, I would be livid if I had to deal with a bunch of ghost ones popping up out of nowhere. Potential ghost girl is in the hallway whispering “don’t.” Jane’s like, “don’t what?” PGG says “don’t let him out.” So it’s like Field of Dreams in that we’re dealing with very non-specific potential ghosts. Who has time for that shit?
Anyway, Henry goes up to see Gavin who’s hanging out on the balcony. Gavin loves being up there at such a peaceful time of night when he’s just murdered a city councilman. Gavin says that the job with councilman Edwards is not a good fit for Henry because there are too many skeletons in Edwards’ closet. Henry’s disappointed, but Gavin tells him he needs to think bigger. Henry shouldn’t be WORKING on someone’s campaign, he should be launching his OWN campaign. He’s got to want it all or he’ll never be a real playa.
