When we last left our beloved Hammond family, Joel had just found Sheila, sitting in her vehicle in the driveway, covered in blood and holding a human heart. We last remember her seeing Carl before her big investor meeting, where she was already getting stressed out before she even left her car. What could have happened? Is Carl dead? Did they get the investor to… invest? Let’s find out!
Joel is panicking, and rightfully so. Sheila has no recollection of what happened for much of that day, and she’s covered in blood and gore. As he gets more and more frustrated, he assures her that he’s mad at the situation, not her. Sheila can’t offer very much help as to what happened, especially considering the bulk of the body is nowhere to be found! They head inside, and notice she’s even missing one of her red boots.
After confirming that there are no new bodies in the storage unit, they decide to find out what happened. Sheila calls Carl but gets his voicemail, where she leaves a sketchy message about her whereabouts the night before. Joel comes outside and confirms that Carl hasn’t been to work yet. They freak out in the parking lot and Carl pulls up unbeknownst to them. There are some sad moments, including one about Abby’s wedding. Carl comes up, pissed at Sheila for bailing on him, forcing her to stand up to him. Carl chooses to fire her instead, not Joel, and tells a dumbfounded Joel that he rescheduled the investor meeting.
