This week starts with the TOV heading off to find the ring. Maddie has been assigned to watch over them. They try a few elaborate schemes to entice the they lady who collects Toby Jugs into letting someone see her collection.
Meanwhile, Max and Sally are headed to Buffalo to hunt for The Doctor. We also see that The Doctor was at a conference for orthopedic surgeons six months ago and got quite agree with a panelist during a Q & A meeting. Presumably, The Doctor killed his colleague afterward. Max and Sally pose as cops and convince the convention photographer that they need to take his photos from the convention as evidence in a case.
Ezra takes the mark to lunch while Jules and Richard break in to her house to get the ring. Unfortunately, the jug is not in the house. She has a climate controlled room in her cellar. Unfortunately, it is locked. The mark has some sort of meltdown at the restaurant and wants to go home. Ezra is upset that he is going to have to put the moves on the mark. So he goes to see Maddie? Maddie tells Ezra that he has to find something about the mark that he can really fall in love with. The victims have become the con artists. Ezra calls the mark and talks about his father’s death and apologizes if he offended her at lunch in any way. Ezra is really uncomfortable for using the collector’s emotions against her. He finally gets invited into the cellar and there are hundreds of jugs there. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to get into the room alone. Instead, the mark has dragged Ezra into her bed. It’s awkward. Ezra manages to escape without putting out.
Maddie and Ezra continue to attract each other. Ezra wants an apology from Maddie. When she apologizes they make out and fall into bed with each other.
Meanwhile, in Buffalo, Max and Sally have found the guy that The Doctor attacked. He didn’t kill him, but he did sever a bunch of ligaments in his hand. He will probably never be able to do surgery again. Max wants to celebrate with Sally. He wants them to be friends again. But Sally says there are no friends in the game, only cons and suckers.
Which takes us back to Ezra and Maddie in the afterglow. Who is the con and who is the sucker in this bed? Ezra is full of regrets. Maddie is being mean. She wants to know about Sophia. She thinks Ezra should thank her for giving him a more exciting life. Instead, he tells her to go fuck herself.
Jules has finished her drawing of the Toby Jar. He is going back over to the mark’s house to get the ring. The mark goes out to the garden to cut some tarragon for Ezra’s dish and Ezra opens the door to let the organizer in. And it’s…SOPHIA!
Okay. I’m going to need a really good explanation about how she is there. Apparently, she is there looking for the ring as well.
I enjoyed this episode, but I didn’t really have a lot to say about it.
Next week: It looks like Sophia joins the group. Most of the previews cut off for me.
