This week in 666 Park Avenue. Air DateNovember 25th, 2012
Lost, But Not Forgotten
36 hours have passed since Jane dramatically if not a bit foolishly descended down the mystery staircase. Henry is distributing flyers; milk cartons will be next so Gavin the ever-helpful demon offers Henry a private investigator to help with his search. A perfect holiday gift if I do say so myself. The Handsome Detective Cooper tells Henry that Nona said she and Jane split up in the basement while searching for Nona’s grandmother. Nona told a big one. Henry questions the detective as to why he hasn’t followed up on the mystery man who disappeared in the hallway the night Jane was attacked. Next we find our Miss Jane who appears suddenly in a deserted Times Square, it is so hard to get tickets for the book of Mormon. She sees a woman, who communicates without speaking, telling Jane that she shouldn’t have come here. All of a sudden, the dream-like state disappears, and Jane is in the midst of a bustling Times Square yelling for Henry.
This Not So Plan Jane
Jane is picked up by the police and brought to a hospital where she is reunited with Henry. Hospital tests reveal there is nothing wrong with Jane physically, but the doctor believes she is having a “dissociative episode.” How do you test for that? The doctor states she is blocking out a traumatic episode, and Jane can’t start to heal until she remembers. Where is Miss Cleo when you need her? Henry wants to take her home, but the doctor tells Henry she is required by law to stay in the hospital for 48 hours.
Its Cold In Here Better Get A Shaw
Kandinsky is enjoying his favorite pastime the torturing of Victor Shaw, Kandinsky goal is to have Shaw first suffer and second tell the location of the powerful and mysterious Pandora’s box. Oddly Mr. Kandinsky’s methods prove less than satisfactory, Gavin decides to make a scary face at him and say he knows Shaw is an alias and that Gavin knew the man’s father. Gavin recalls that Shaw’s father was willing to do anything to succeed, including abandoning his child. Children, did you say children well Shaw can play at that game also. Shaw throws up the death of Gavin’s own daughter, Sasha. He claims that she didn’t die in a car accident, but had killed herself in reaction to finding out her father’s true identity. Could it be Satan? Shaw also states that Olivia knows the truth.
When Gavin confronts Olivia, she confirms Shaw’s story, telling Gavin she was just trying to protect him.
They Try to Make Me Go to Rehab
Surprise Louise returns but not from a photo shoot but she was in rehab. Apparently, Gavin arranged her stay. I am sure Alexis made a recommendation to Galvin or at least made the reservation. She is greeted warmly in the lobby by Alexis, (the conniving bitch), Louise has to confess to Brian about her recent addiction to painkillers. Brian asks why Louise didn’t tell him, and she says she was ashamed. Louise sees her return as another new beginning. “I feel like this crisis could be an opportunity for us to start fresh. No secrets this time,” she states. “No secrets,” well accept the one that says your screwing the building’s easy mart open 24/7. Oh and she is amuse. Alexis should sit on the banks of the Hudson, sing and lour Wall Street bankers to their death.
Memories, Like the Corners Of My Mind
Now we know prime real estate is hard to get even for the super natural. You just cant wait for someone die to get a great apartment these days. At the Drake we have the wing under the stairs. Is it a portal or just rooms for the more Macomb? Back at the Hospital Jane’s nurse tries to take Jane’s blood pressure; it triggers a memory that causes her to have a violent episode. The more hospital staff that comes to hold her down, the more uncontrollable she becomes. Finally someone with a bit of sense grabbed a siring and sedates her. Jane drifts in and out of consciousness, all the while hearing two nurses speaking about a man who had a similar reaction a month earlier when the nurse tried to draw his blood. He started babbling about a spiral staircase as well. Jane learns the man is still in the hospital in what can only be assumed is the psychiatric wing, so you know what that means, yes in deed Jane will be off to the nut house.
Locket and Loan It
Nona comes to see Jane at the hospital and runs into detective Cooper. He asks Nona if she has any idea what might have happened to Jane. Nona is the word or is it mums, anyway she says nothing about the disappearing staircase. Hanging out with Mr. Cooper says he will be speaking with Jane soon and can pass along a message for Nona if she would like. She hands him an envelope and tells him, “She’ll know what it means.”
A Close Encounter of the Fatal Attraction Kind.
Alexis wants Brian and what Alexis wants Alexis gets. Brian returns from the store to find her talking to Louise about her involvement with a married man. Alexis says she doesn’t even feel badly about it, because the man’s wife is a bitch. “He needs me, even if he doesn’t know it yet,” Alexis says. Brian goes to see Alexis and tells her that she needs to quit her job and move. He states vehemently that they are through. Alexis tells him they can’t fight fate. “The universe wants us to be together,” she says. Alexis also insinuates that Brian’s recent burst of creativity is due to their indiscretion.
Life On The D Wing
Jane, in a more coherent state,, its amazing what drugs will do for you when you just need a break from all the screams and scares of the day. Jane states to Detective Cooper she need to go back to The Drake and retrace her steps. She also tells him about the other patient, Julian Waters, found under the same circumstances as Jane. But wait Mr. Cooper informs Jane that the D-Wing is for violent patients and the red zone is for loading and unloading patients only and that whoever this man is or was, she doesn’t need to speak with him. He passes along the envelope from Nona that contains Jane’s necklace and the picture of her in the lobby of The Drake. In true Jane style her curiosity gets the better of her, you know she laid there and went over this about a thousand times until she finally gave in to her OSD and off to see the D-Wing and the wonderful nuttier Julian Waters.
Jane pounces on him with questions that he refuses to answer with the exception of one, he said he never went down the stairs but he came up them. You know this will drive Jane just a bit crazier than she already has become. Jane returns later during visiting hours of course to speak to Julian yet again this time she sees what appears to be symbols drawn on the wall in blood and Mr. Waters hanging from a noose made of a bed sheet. I never knew he was so handy. He opens his eyes and says, “You shouldn’t have come here.” You Think?
Jane returns to the Drake, she is after all connected. All should be revealed soon, since 666 Park Avenue’s 13-week run is just about finished.
Here are the ratings. The executives cannot expect to beat out in ratings against Sunday Night Football, but 666 came in third with little or no marketing support and the show still produced a steady 4 million viewers. We are watching but is the Network listening?
NBC: “Sunday Night Football” (16.2 million, 10.2/16)
CBS: “The Mentalist” (10.3 million, 6.6/11)
ABC: “666 Park Avenue” (4 million, 2.7/4)
