The October 7, 2012 episode of 666 Park Avenue concentrates on Jane's (Rachel Taylor) discovery of a murder at The Drake. This leads to a complex story surrounding the murder, as well as the potential involvement of other Drake residents.
For the first time, the audience gets to know more about Gavin (Terry O'Quinn). He is pictured as a very crafty business tycoon with a generous nature and a tendency to deceive people in his business transactions. This is the central inner conflict within Gavin, the good and the bad. Ultimately, the viewers will have to judge Gavin for themselves, after seeing all the evidence unfold.
The opening scenes center on the discovery of a huge colony of birds nestled in the wall of a vacated apartment. The scene is reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. Brian (Robert Buckley) and Louise (Mercedes Masohn) are pictured discussing her elevator accident which happened at The Drake during the opening of the show.
The action quickly focuses on Jane and Henry (David Annable) in attendance at Olivia's (Vanessa Williams) party. Jane introduces Henry to a building resident named Danielle. Gavin takes the center stage in his discussion of a $100 million dollar deal to secure The Alpern which is a large, 32-story building currently under construction. He reminds all who will listen that finding love makes it worth the pain of waiting.
This scene introduces viewers to the grandiose business ventures that Gavin enjoys. This aspect of the show provides viewers with a glimpse into the high stakes atmosphere which surrounds Gavin in his business relationships.
The action moves to Jane doing laundry. Strange doo-op music lures her out of the laundry room. Her inquisitiveness leads her into an apartment with a dead man bloodied from wounds and stretched out on the floor. This scene sets up more evidence of the impending presence of evil in the building.
Suddenly, she wakes up startled from a seemingly bad dream; whereupon, husband Henry scurries about readying to leave for a day's work. The scene shifts briefly to an exterminator finishing his work to cover up the hole in the wall in order to seal the birds safely inside.
Later, the birds attack the exterminator for disturbing their peaceful abode. The audience ponders whether he will survive the coordinated attack from a large group of angry birds. The birds provide high drama, forceful orchestral music and an unreal atmosphere akin to Alfred Hitchcock's movie, The Birds.
