Then Nick is tasked with looking after Hailey for a whole day, something he's never done before. And what's the first thing she does? Open the fridge and spot all the bloody, chilling organs. Nick didn't even properly tupperware them. Time to play How to Scar a Child for Life in a Single Day.
And Sonny Shine's rebranding ploy is already paying dividends. His stunts (or should we just call them terrorist attacks?) have been interpreted by the yellow press as an assault on Easter. That means it's time for Sonny and his bandwagon to come to town.
Blue is thinking about taking a plea deal, which would get his possessed ass out of prison and into a Witness Protection program in Wyoming (ex-gangster's paradise), but it means he's got to sing like a canary. His lawyer warns against it. Blue doesn't care.
Smoothie is up to his old hijinks again, and has flayed all of Scooter's skin from his body, trellessed him up in some swanky leather chaps and chains, and slipped on some deadly stilletos. And then the fun starts.
Running out of kid-friendly options, Nick takes Hailey to the satellite betting depot where they can bet imaginary bucks on real horseys. Hailey shows a preternatural knack for it, and Nick thinks he can parlay his little Rain Daughter's genius into real cash. First, he needs the ante, and Hailey's got 40 large she got from Amanda. When her mom calls, Hailey tells her that they're at Coney Island. Watch out, Hailey, the road to perdition is a one way street!
When Hailey's horse loses, Nick erupts and wants to double down. On the horse. But he also kind of doubles down on being a bad dad, and yells at Hailey when she doesn't fork over more cash. She bolts. Faster than the horse she bet on, incidentally.
While chasing down Hailey, Nick bumps into the son of the old man who was supposed to get a kidney transplant in the warehouse the other day. They found another match, and they want Nick to make the pick up and drop off. He can't turn it down.
Merry intercepts Blue's lawyer, and tortures him until he spills on why he's at Shines Tower. Sunny blackmails everyone within a 100 mile radius of his operations with videotapes of them confessing their most depraved desires. Merry wants to see those tapes.
When Hailey asks what all the noise was, Nick can't bear to tell her. She knows he's lying, and she's hurt. But in all fairness, he's in a double-bind: tell her the truth, and traumatize her: tell her a lie, and she'll hold it against him for life.
Upon dropping Hailey off, Nick gets to meet the guy that Amanda hung out with all day. Simon and she met at the department store while she was picking up some Easter decorations. They used to go steady, and now they're both single and ready to mingle. What a great ending to an awesome day in the life of Nick Sacks. In other news, Amanda is starting to lose her damn mind, which you can chalk up to PTSSD (Post Traumatic Sunny Shines Disorder).
