Kono calls and says that they got a print off the shotgun they found in the store (I completely forgot to mention this before) and it’s a guy who has a record of aggravated assault. Here follow three of the most awesome claricas Show has ever managed, one after the other:
Danny says in response to this news: “Sounds like the kind of guy who would have an unregistered shotgun.”
Ten seconds after that, they get to the guys house and there’s a truck with a lot of blood in it. McG says: “Does that look like blood to you?”
Three seconds after THAT, the guy himself comes through the gate, blood-spattered and carrying a shovel. Danny says: “He’s got blood on him, Steve.”
POW-POW-POW!!! Show, please stop targeting my brain cells with your rapid-fire clarica weapon. If you want to appeal to the lowest common denominator, just have McG TAKE OFF HIS PANTS and then you won’t need to have any dialogue at all. K? Aces.
Chin goes into the jungle to find out what’s up with the shovel while McG and Danny do their usual ‘guilty until proven innocent’ interrogation routine. Chin is digging up – ewwwwwwwwwww. Apparently this is what happens when you stick a shovel in a pig. Note to self: don’t do that. Quite apart from the mess, Danny and McG will have NO SYMPATHY. So this guy knew Ethan’s father (Bruce! His name is BRUCE. Must remember to call him that, much easier) because he worked at the store and sometimes ‘borrowed’ the shotgun for illegal hunting. He’s innocent then. Booyah.
Cath is at Ethan’s house and he’s being nosy about her relationship with McG. She says he sounds like her mother and I have an epiphany about the horrible top! MY mother had one in almost that exact same fabric sometime in the 1980s! I think it came from Laura Ashley, but equally it might have come from C&A (I dimly recall a rather rude joke about knickers from C&A and what the C&A might stand for…. no, it’s gone). Cath’s packing some clothes and asks him where there’s a suitcase; he says there’s one in the basement, but he doesn’t want to go down there because he’s hurt his knee playing soccer but WE ALL KNOW that it’s because basements are scaaaaary. Cath takes pity on him, goes down by herself and finds the suitcase, which has a lot of cash in it. Hmmm. Mysterious.
Kono’s found the man who was shot at the store; he was anonymously dropped off at the local hospital but died during surgery. They have no idea who he is. I have no idea why she’s wearing orange. No-one looks good in orange. Wow, orange really suits you, said no-one, ever. The car, though, belongs to Bruce. He’s now Guilty-Until-Proven-Innocent number ONE!!
