Hello Gasmii! Welcome to another week at the Drake. Shit’s about to get real, y’all. Well, as real as shit can get on a show about a haunted building that eats people.
Previously: Henry saved his boss’ life. Yes, we are still on that. Dr. Sexy Evans borrowed $50-grand from Gavin and ended up being branded for life. The unrelenting spookiness finally got to Jane and she wants to get the hell outta Dodge. Victor Shaw got some head (not in a good way) after trying to blackmail Gavin into giving him the Drake. And Kandinsky’s back!
We open in the lobby and it is 1998. I loved 1998. I wish I could go back to 1998 (as long as I could bring my iPhone, of course). A very pregnant woman asks Gavin to hold the elevator and we learn that her name is Melanie and her mom is Lottie, who lives up on ten.
Gavin tells Melanie that Lottie is one of his favorite residents and that she must be excited about impending grandma-hood. Gavin then asks how the “little girl” is doing and Melanie’s like, how did you know it was a girl? Gavin says, “Lucky guess.”
On ten, Lottie is happy to see her daughter, but not so happy when she finds out Melanie was chatting with Gavin. Lottie doesn’t want Melanie around the bad things in the Drake until after “Baby Nona” is born. Melanie doesn’t want her mom to be there alone if it’s dangerous, but Lottie says she’s not allowed to leave. She forces Melanie out under protest. Melanie gets into the elevator, but since it’s a demon elevator, it stops and the lights go out and OF COURSE Melanie goes into labor.
A baby cries the background and we fade up on present-day Lottie, who is still catatonic in a wheelchair. Nona changes a song on an iPod and asks if that’s better. Lottie is silent, being catatonic and all.
In Henry and Jane’s apartment, the two get dressed for a ceremony where Henry will be getting a medal for saving his boss’ life. They’re really dragging this shit out, aren’t they? Henry chatters excitedly but Jane is distracted. Henry finally notices and asks Jane what’s up. Jane says she is proud and glad that things are going well for him, but she doesn’t feel safe and is scared after what happened on Halloween. Okay, Killjoy. Henry reminds her that she told him not to run away from his fears and she’s the one who convinced him to move to NYC. He adds that things are good for both of them, not just him. But Jane’s not in the mood to discuss, so she suggests they leave.
At the ceremony, which is being held outdoors even though it’s November, the mayor commends Henry for being a hero. The Dorans are there, of course, because they are obsessed with Henry and Jane. Olivia says she was picturing Henry behind the podium the whole time. Gavin needs some more alone time with Henry, so Olivia pulls Jane away and tries to lure her into taking an architect job for a friend who just bought a place in Gramercy Park. But Jane has already decided to move back to Indiana. Olivia chides her for running away and says it’s too bad Jane just decided this now when opportunity finally decided to knock.
