Eoghan, working as usual at his uncle’s bar, was noticing something. he didn’t like to notice things. People he knew as regulars had been vanishing without comment. Lately though, they showed up again. Though dressed very fancy. They then vanish again shortly, again with no comment. Gale was working the docks when the urge to get a drink struck and only good bar near the was O’Reilly’s. After work, he heads there, waiting for his partner, Robert Tracy, to show up. Eoghan noticed Gale, the cop who put him in the drunk tank. While Gale notices him and finds it odd to see a non-supernatural tending such a bar. A smoking hot lady in a skin-tight red leather outfit comes into O’Reilly’s hanging on the arm of a badly dressed man. He doesn’t seem in her league, but hey, money can buy you most things if that was the case. About this time, Dr. Grant Sawyer gives McCullen a call, asking to meet with him at a bar. Fate, go figure. Jenny decides to give Aya, her old boss, a visit to ask about more temp work. And pass off another number from a girl who’s hosting a party at her sorority next week. They head over to O’Reilly’s as a client he is looking for might be there, a friend, Richard Codak who helped her out of a tight spot and Aya also wants to meet a potential client at O’Reilly’s. Codak meanwhile calls Dr. Sawyer, two tries on the phone is the charm, and agrees to meet up with him at the bar.
Sawyer and Gale start sharing drinks Eoghan gives them and make small talk. As Aya and Jenny get to the bar, as usual most girls turn their heads to stare at him. All except for one girl, the one in red. Aya attempts to woo her, but fails, oddly. She seems completely oblivious to everyone but her date. Aya leaves her a business card ad drinks his sex on the beach. Jenny sits sipping her whiskey. Richard shows up as Jenny apologizes to Dr. Sawyer for the library incident, and he introduces me to the detective McCullen and explains a bit about the book he “rescued” from Dr. Garbutt and how it was on the occult! Richard gets in at this point and he and Jenny exchange quick greetings before he and Sawyer dip into talking about magic and runes. Apparently Sawyer is friends with Richard, or working together or something like that. Meanwhile, Detective McCullen and his partner Robert question the odd couple for a bit before returning to talk to Sawyer and Richard.
Jenny distracts Robert for a bit by talking about his job and the missing persons case with the children. Eventually he strange couple stands to leave, as does Aya. He tries to get to her by touching her lightly on the shoulder as Molly gives her a death look. The bartender Eoghan confronts the couple briefly about the trouble of bringing in such a pricey “piece of tail!” The couple then leaves, and Aya nabs the red woman’s glass (probably to sniff as usual) and the Detective and the Professor start talking about mind control and vampires? What? Jenny offers to help at least, since she did push a bookshelf onto him. Even if he’s from MIT and kind of unhinged. Though she do know magic exists, occult just has a nasty ring to it.
Aya tries to track by smell the red lady, but is unable to track due to her leaving in a limo. Richard mentions that he will buy the hat soon and then leaves. Dr. Sawyer comments that she may be mind controlled? Similar to his theories about the Professor Garbutt. Eoghan doesn’t disagree. Aya seduces the barmaid Molly before Jenny drops him off and heads home via the T.
