Notice the parallel between two events at the end of this episode. Shivette (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Juliet (Zoey Deutch) clean the red letters of the word “whore” from Siobhan’s portrait. At the same time some distance away, Henry Butler (Kris Polaha) cleans an as yet unidentified blood spatter from his wall. The past is disappearing. The universe, at least this part of it, has changed.
Henry Butler is a bad novelist. I say this not having read any of his fictional fiction, because he is not an observant man, and good writers must be observant. Having had an intense affair with Siobhan for a year, he has failed to notice the absence of a scar on her inner wrist, though he has seen her several times.
This episode establishes the home address of Henry and Gemma Butler as 80 Gramercy Park West, New York, NY 10003.
Next week we get more of the excellent Zoey Deutch as she attends her new (public) school. Looking forward to that.
