Charles did a brief recap of what happened at Tesla’s, asking “where was Tesla during this?”. The group then debated what to do next. The discussion brought up Jennifer Vanderbilt and Terri recommended nuking the Vanderbilts. This caused Charles to remark, “Before you use a nuke, please keep in mind I live just down the street from them”, to which V.S. stated, “You’ll be fine. You have a ward up”. A discussion of the usage of the term, “NUKE”, then ensued. As this occurred, the news stated that the New York Times was running a report by Karl Kolchak, showing pictures of Andromeda picking up methadone from a methadone Clinic, insinuating she has a drug problem. It also indicated that the prescription was signed by Dr. Blake and an FDA and AMA investigation into Dr. Blake was being prepped.
The group debated how to approach Jennifer, and V.S. suggested Charles hold a party. Meanwhile, Terri called the Police and reported her van stolen. She then proceeded outside and, sketch in hand, began pestering everyone in the area if they had seen her van. As she was doing this, someone, somewhere, fired a sniper shot at her form one of the nearby rooftops, barely missing her. She darted into the nearest ally and changed into her Worgen Form. Terri then ran up the wall of the nearest building, causing the drunk in the alleyway to mumble, “I need better booze”. Terri reached the roof, startling some pigeons, and seeing nothing else. Terri then crouched down behind one of the walls surrounding the roof, assumed human form, and called V.S.‘s phone. Terri told him, “Someone just shot at me” and he responded, “TOLD you my plan would work!” V.S. then asked if she was OK, as she told him where she was and he told the rest of what was going on. Terri confirmed she couldn’t see the shooter as V.S. hung up and ensured Dolores stayed away from the windows.
Terri then resumed Worgen form an ripped the door from the roof open. As the group resumed their discussion of how to find Jennifer Garcia and Dennis Harrel. Meanwhile, Terri made her way down the stairs to the door, only to hear sirens of an approaching Police Car. Two police cars pulled up, 4 patrolmen emerging. They entered the building to see Terri, in wolfhound form, lying curled up, causing one of the cops to overreact and fire his gun at Terri, missing. After the officer was convinced to put away his gun by the other officers, the cops began knocking on doors, asking about any disturbances. As they moved on, the nervous cop was overhead by Terri as he called Animal Control about Terri.
Charles looked out the window to observe a crowd forming in front of the building, remarking, “She’s usually pretty good of getting out of sticky situations” and VS commented, “OK, shell be fine, lets move on”. Susanna then commented, “I’m going to go see what happened” and walked out. Susanna walked in, seeing Terri (as a wolfhound) and shouted, “FLUFFY! There you are. You bad dog you!” and took Terri’s collar in her hand. Terri began thumping her tail against the wall. One of the cops looked at Susanna, asking if this was her dog and where was it’s license. Susanna remarked, “Yes. This is Fluffy! I’ve had her since she was a puppy! She ran out at the Vet’s before we could get the new tag on her” she then walked Terri back to the Flame of Knowledge, entering and remarking, “I found Fluffy!” David then remarked, “Great. Now you need to Paper Train her” which caused Terri to walk over to David and raise her left leg. As Terri remained in dog form, as she spoke with the group, Susanna continued to refer to her as Fluffy.
David then tried to get everyone back on topic, “Now, getting back to Huey and Dewey.” and V.S. remarked, “and the Vanderbilts,” which caused Charles to remark, “Fine, I’ll sell my home and then you can get your nuke”. The group then reviewed the information Andromeda got on Harrel and Garcia. Terri, in dog form, curled up on Susanna’s feet as she tried to give her a dog biscuit. Susanna then scrathed Terri behind the ears, idly, as the group listened. David asked Terri, “Fluffy, do you know anything of this gang?” and Terri uncurled from Susanna, walked over to David, and began peeing on his feet. As Terri began cleaning up her mess (in human form), Terri answered that “They’re the local terror mob in the Bronx.” Then Terri recalled that the Gang that David saw take shots at Risa Hirano and Lazarus Jacobs (back in Episode 1) were members of the same gang.
Terri pointed out that they need to either “flush out, follow, or locate Harrel and Garcia” and V.S. said “your people are good at finding things” and Terri responded that, “My people are on the Rag this month”. V.S. suggested to Charles to contact Aspen to see what the Summer Fae might be able to find. Charles did point out that he didn’t know how much they could find, but, he did not know how Drucillia and her folk tracked the Tablets (back in Episode 4))
V.S. assembled some celery and peanut butter and summoned Drucillia. She showed, rasp-berried Terri, and asked V.S.‘s question about tracking Homer’s Tablet. Drucillia responded, “The Queen gave us a wand to track it”. Several more questions and raspberries later, the group realized that Drucillia had the Stylus that went with the Tablet. Drucillia also revealed that the Stylus was then given to Calliope. Drucillia then revealed that Terri didn’t catch onto her rudeness, that she was compelled by “The Tentacle Lady” who made her “do things she couldn’t”. she then apologized to Terri for being so rude, then asked for Terri’s protection from “The Tentacle Lady” who still could compel her as she still had “Peter’s Knife” to compel her with. She stated that “I thought the knife was still with Peter on The Island” and that she was unable to return to The Island, as, “she was forbidden” since she committed a sin amongst The Fae, by “Falling in love with a Mortal”. David mentioned Harrel and Garcia and Dru asked about them. After describing them, Drucillia told about how “The Tentacle Lady” had met with them, but she couldn’t remember where, as they made her drink some water which made her forget. Andromeda deduced this was water from The River Lethe, and further investigation revealed that Drucillia told Queen Mab, who helped her remember some, and then summoned Zeus, a meeting that Dru was not allowed to attend, but she did listen in, hearing something about “a Daughter of Hypnos”. The group then deduced that Garcia was the Daughter of Hypnos. She also warned that Garcia worn a necklace of a three headed woman around her neck that the group deduced was a Symbol of Hecate. She also mentioned that a six armed woman was also present, albeit, summoned, that V.S. deduced was Shiva.
The group then decided to go investigate 18 w136th Street, taking the subway. Drucillia, riding on Terri’s shoulder, apparently had a fixation for Disney tunes, especially, “It’s a Small World”. David entered the building, as the others went to get dinner. Passing an Italian restaurant, Drucillia whispered in Terri’s ear, “There. Let’s eat there. Cheese…Mozzarella Cheese. And tomatoes.” Terri then informed the group, “I suddenly have a craving for Italian Food”.
As David approached Eric’s door, he heard the moans of pleasure of a feminine voice from inside the apartment., that he recognized as Alleria Windrunner. David then decided to slip into Eric’s office and copy the records of the residents, learning who lives in which apartment. David then called V.S. to learn where the group was eating, and joined up with the others. As David entered, Saundra Smythe entered before he did, and David and Terri watched as she went to go sit with a young Italian Gentleman, who David recognized as Alfredo “Freddo” Lucciano, Lucky Lucciano’s adopted son. Terri waved at Saundra, who ignored the wave.
As the group was eating, footage began to run on ABC News showing Andromeda and Susanna entering into Studio 54. The footage was filmed by Karl Kolchak, and the closed captioning identified Andromeda, mentioning that she was entering with an underage girl (name withheld for protection) and that the D.A.’s office was opening an investigation into charges of Endangering the Welfare of a Minor and Contributing to the Delinquency of a minor.
Andromeda immediately contacted her Agent, Zoe Washburn, who said she would see what she could do, and make a few calls.. While Andromeda was on her phone, Susanna excused herself, saying “I think it’s best if I’m not seen around Andromeda.” and the others agreed with her. When Andromeda returned to the table, Susanna had left. She asked the group where Susanna was, and her departure was explained. David returned the group to the list he acquired, noticing there were two names on the list he did not recognize – 1 had moved in about two weeks ago, the other someone who had lived in the building since before he moved in (and he has never met).
A discussion ensued on how to best find where the ‘server’ Jennifer was using was. Andromeda pointed out that she would need access to the Server Room for the building, to look into the network, being it’s setup as part of the apartment itself. Andromeda poked around and learned that she was using every computer in the building as a virtual server, and maybe beyond the building. Andromeda removed David’s Hard Drive and after figuring a place to go to decode it,. David called the others and filled the others in.
Andromeda departed, hard drive in hand, David shadowing he until she got into a Taxi. Andromeda went to an old motel in Lower Manhattan. David returned to the restaurant and filled the others in on what they learned. David returned to Eric’s apartment, and then Alleria’s, not getting any response from knocking, then departed.
Terri went to City Hall and filed a license for Fluffy and added Fluffy to the list of CSU dogs. Terri then returned home, checking up on Cameron, to see how she was doing, finding her sewing new flesh onto her face. Terri arrived at the Flame as Andromeda did, letting Andromeda in. Andromeda began to tell the group that she knew where Harrel and Garcia was. She started to get a horrible migraine as she told them that they were at Camp Crystal Lake in Voorhees, New York, and then begin to tell the group about how she received text messages from someone claiming to make her issues go away if she led them into trap. She also told the group that she had learned that the point of origin for the network was in Voorhees, New York, the same location as the place she was told to lead the group to. A verbal sparring ensued, as Andromeda ripped into (exploded at) Terri in anger, claiming it was to protect her career as well as Susanna.
V.S. recognized the camp as a place infested by an evil murderous spirit and makes the Amityville House look “like Disneyland at Christmas”. Terri confirmed that the Camp has been closed since the 80s, as it has been the sight of multiple Mass Murders.
Drucillia told Terri she didn’t want to go to the Camp, that, “it’s dark and cold there”. Terri then offered to take Drucillia to Dragonflys Gentlemans Club and Drucillia accepted.
