Previously on 666 Park Avenue: Nona told Jane there was a thief in the building. Gavin pushed a city councilman down an elevator shaft. Jane is stalked by a possible ghost brat. Henry applied for a new job with said city councilman and a lowly obit writer channeled her inner Jayson Blair.
We open with jaunty music as Tony delivers newspapers via cart to the residents. The door to Annie’s apartment opens and Kandinsky picks up the paper. He turns to the story about him. Annie is still tied to a chair and he reads the story to her.
50 Shades of Prey
He is mad because he was under the radar for twenty years, but now, thanks to her article, he is very much on the radar. He gets out a knife from his “murder kit” and holds it up to her face. He wants to know who told her about him. She says she made the whole thing up but he doesn’t believe her. She begs and pleads and promises to retract the story, but he won’t hear it. He threatens to cut her eye out if she won’t tell him where she got the info and she freaks out and says it was her boss, Ned. He says Ned had better tell him where he got the info or he will come back and cut both of her eyes out. Whoa. Someone is cranky in the morning.
At Henry and Jane’s, Jane is asking how she should wear her hair for tomorrow night’s party at the mayor’s house. Henry is sad because he just got an email canceling his interview for the city council office job. Apparently it’s hard to conduct an interview from the bottom of an elevator shaft. Jane tries to console him by saying he’s amazing, but the job is not meant to be and he’ll have plenty of other opportunities.
They make out, but then he trips over the nasty suitcase that Jane brought up from the basement last episode. He’s all, WTF is this? Jane explains where she got it, then says isn’t he curious to know what’s in it? Henry is not, but he is concerned about dust mites. No kidding, right? Meanwhile, the combination lock on the suitcase is turning itself. Creepy! Also, the little girl is hiding under their bed again. That means she has to be a ghost, right? I am making the executive decision that she is a ghost.
Jane is at her dining room table trying to break the suitcase lock when Olivia walks in on her. Olivia is angry because Tony told her the Drake thief struck again. Olivia wants Jane to do whatever it takes to catch the thief, whether it means hiring a detective or whatever. Jane says she’s on it. Olivia says good, because she wants her diamond brooch back. Olivia then notes that tomorrow night at the mayor’s is a big deal for Henry…and Jane finishes her sentence by saying she’s already bought a vintage Dolce & Gabbana at a consignment shop for 90% off. Olivia says Jane is learning. Olivia leaves, and the suitcase lock spins by itself again.
Oh c’mon. Everyone knows the combination is 666
