Other notable developments in last night's episode:
- Janette's being beaten down by New Orleans bad luck and weather. Although she'd rather have her "head dipped in duck fat" than give up her cooking, she's thinking of packing up and taking her act to New York City. The "stresser" (as they have it on Criminal Minds) was a cooking gig she had with a great band, blown apart by stormy weather. This produced at least one great line - I don't wannna be "electrocuted for my art" one of the band members observed - and Janette beginning to feel it was hopeless in N.O. When she goes home and finds her bed being rained on through a broken roof, this might be the last straw. It looks as if only McAlary can talk her out of leaving.
- Annie's split from Sonny. This ain't easy, but is probably for the best.
- Ladonna tells Antoine that what happened between them last week was just a "Mardi Gras fuck," but Antoine's not fazed, which is why I like him. He knows the truth - he's irresistible, yeah.
- Albert's headed for a bruising, and is told so by the police Lt. But the last thing Albert will do is back down, so there should be some good, I sure hope not deadly, action in the Season One finale
