Kurt Kanada talks to his boss Ray Stubbs, gives explanation for lack of useful work as death of relative during riot. Makes "that face Walter White makes when he's had to liquefy someone, in the early seasons, not the late seasons."
Stubbs calls in Callisto crime reporter Alexi Sayle. Sayle unimpressed with Kanada.
|"stay away from my story Kanada!"|
Both go to interview Charles who tries to project an impression of "injured innocence combined with potential violence."
"So just like his real self then."
Charles discloses gang war is between Tokkys and Islanders. Not sure how it started but certain he will finish it.
When asked why Charles's dog 'Squig' is smelling him suspiciously, Kanada claims '"I'm a Science reporter, dog's smell science reporters. it's just the smell of science."
When asked what the 'smell of science actually is, Player replies
"In Otherpool, liquified corpses probably."
Alexi Sayle drives off without Kanada, leaving him to walk back to the office. Kanada buys a ham sandwich on the way back so he can pretend he just went out for lunch and wasn't dumped by a colleague. Smart.
Will he wait to eat it till he gets in??? Or get hungry on the walk?!?!?!. Tune in next week!!!!
