There is high drama around John's wife Mary coming back to life briefly. The price of her remaining seems to be taking the life of another. And so, a deal with the devil appears to be in the offing. Again, this scene sets up another brush with evil. Viewers are left with an open question as to whether or not Mary will be kept alive in exchange for killing other people.
The action in the show shifts to Jane who is depicted as a methodical and hard working employee. She hurries about The Drake with a pen and pad in order to document what needs fixing. Later on, Jane is seen examining an unusual fresco of a dragon embedded onto the basement floor. A trip to the library yields more information about the address. Research establishes that the insignia is a 1927 Order of the Dragon.
After the scene at the library, Jane gets locked inside the stairwell with a woman appearing to flee down the stairs below her. She follows the woman down the stairwell and witnesses her step off the ledge of the building. Next, Jane is awakened surprisingly while in bed with her husband, Henry.
That day, the owners, Gavin and Olivia Duran (Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams) are impressed with the young couple and the two are asked to sign a contract to stay at The Drake for a year. They are told that the management wants the building fully restored. And so, the first episode of 666 Park Avenue ends.
The music and storyline employed in 666 Park Avenue is very engaging. The characters are chic. The daily activities seem to center around unique dramas that play out in surprising ways. On occasion, evil nuances pop up to whet the
appetites of viewers and leave unresolved issues for a resolution in subsequent shows.
The audience is challenged to keep up with the rationale behind this interesting presentation. If subsequent shows are anything like this one, there will be a constant stream of unresolved dramas and forceful opera music accompanied by the throbbing of the classic tintinnabulation of Poe - like bells. Stay tuned.
