Previously on 666 Park Ave: Jane and Henry became the resident managers of Hotel Hell; Gavin may or may not be Satan and he has big plans to use Jane to get to Henry. Bitchy Louise hired her slutty neighbor who strips in front of the window to be her assistant and then got attacked by a demon elevator. Louise’s playwright husband Brian has no balls and spends more time staring at Alexis than writing plays. Nona is the resident thief and she has visions. A bunch of people got sucked into the walls – and that is not a euphemism.
It’s a beautiful day on the Upper East Side and Gavin strolls around the lobby of the Drake like he owns the place or something. I thought the song playing in the background was “Where the Boys Are,” but it’s actually Patsy Cline’s “You Belong to Me,” which makes more sense considering Gavin and his soul-buying side business. Gavin checks in at the front desk and gazes sinisterly at Henry who passes through the lobby on his way to work.
Jane and Doorman Tony discuss John Barlow, who has disappeared without telling anyone. You may remember John from last week. He’s the one with bloody hands and an undead wife who ended up as human spackle in apartment 8F. Jane is upset that she didn’t know about John’s leaving since she is resident manager and all. Tony assures her that John and Gavin became BFFs after John’s wife “took her high dive” off the building and that Gavin has taken care of all the moving-out paperwork. Also the paperwork for his eternal soul torture.
John’s apartment is full of boxes that need to be shipped off to “Vegas” and Jane has a little clipboard of chores to ready the apartment for the next lucky tenant. As they chat, Tony gets a call from a party planner who is there because of a shindig at the Dorans that night that he isn’t invited to and Jane is. Tony says he’s not mad about the slight because he has a prior engagement anyway.
Alone in the apartment, Jane hears scratching in the wall and goes over to investigate. She pulls off the wallpaper and the wall crumbles. She looks into the hole and all of a sudden, like a billion birds fly out of the wall! Holy crap that is nasty. I hate birds. They menace Jane before breaking a window and flying out.
We see their reflection as Gavin stares out the window of his office.
Jane goes up to Tony at the front desk to tell him about the birds. He says it’s no big deal because it’s an old building and there are probably lots of things in the walls. You know, like birds, judge killers and unhinged violinists. Jane’s like, noooo, that was a shit ton of birds and we need an exterminator. Tony’s on the phone with the elevator repair people but he gives her the exterminator’s number and tells her to call. He’s kind of snotty about it, and Jane’s like, “I didn’t steal your job, so don’t be mad at me.”
