Quick aside about the Targaryen Dynasty's fetish for little tchotchkes and gewgaws: Every member of the Small Council has a little marble sphere they plunk into a receptacle on the table in front of them. Don't recall seeing that back in Game of Thrones. Doesn't seem to have anything to do with procedural votes or anything, though I've misplaced my copy of Aegon's Rules of Order. Maybe they're like the cocktail napkin you place over glass of Sav Blanc when you head to the john? Or is it just a needlessly complicated way to say "Present"?
Game of Thrones delighted in what it believed were sudden, surprising rug-pulls, like in the episode in which Littlefinger met his ultimate fate. House of the Dragon also loves a fake-out, it seems, so when the King announces his decision to wed ... Alicent Hightower, the only ones not gobsmacked by this twist are those of us who've been watching the episode.
Shaw: Nothing. It moved too fast to see. It hid too well. I heard it, though. A roar. Like... no man or animal I ever heard.Sam: It came at night? Got inside your tent?Shaw: It got inside our cabin. I was sleeping in front of the fireplace when it came in. It didn't smash a window or break the door. It unlocked it. Do you know of a bear that could do something like that? I didn't even wake up till I heard my parents screaming.Sam: It killed them?
Having little to go on, other than the prize notification certificate, Michael turns to Sam Axe. Although Michael knows Sam is informing on him to the FBI, he is one of the few people still talking to him and has experience in the spy game. Sam asks what the plan is, and Michael says the prize certificate Laura received contains a phony address and phone number, but the print work is good enough that there could only be a handful of shops that could have produced it.
The next day, Michael will meet up with Quentin and his gang, spinning his yarn about conning people with fake bonds, giving Sam and Fiona time to wire Quentin's car, so it can be disabled remotely, and to download information from Quentin's computer. Realizing that Quentin is skeptical and is sending the partners back to the yacht, he is furiously texting Sam and Fiona to leave the yacht, but they are bickering too much to hear the phone vibrate.
Aamina visited the library a few times a week, viewing books of medieval religious erotica. The same books were also frequently viewed by a Sister Catherine, but the address the nun listed is fake. Job and Brad track her down in a convent and learn that her name is actually Sister Joan. She defends her interest in the erotica and says that she became friends with Aamina at the library. Aamina became interested in the library as a way to rebel against her strict Muslim father, and learned of the erotica from a man whom she sometimes met for rendezvous at an Airbnb.

Back at Mars Investigations, Veronica asks Keith why he thought Jake Kane was Lilly's killer. Keith tells Veronica that he cannot tell her since he made his decision only to try to protect Veronica and her mother. Instead, Veronica walks to the Sheriff's Department using a fake ID that she and Lilly made as a joke to ask Inga about one of Lilly's tickets. The ticket turns out to be from a red light camera; the photo shows Lilly running a red light two hours after her supposed time of death.

Now for only 25 cents, SpongeBob will teach anyone who's willing the proper technique to creating the perfect bubble. Just as Squidward wonders aloud who would be stupid enough to pay to blow bubbles, Patrick shows up and SpongeBob begins his show of amazing bubble creations, which bothers Squidward even further.

While Nacho sat tight, Mike spent the opening sequence of Better Call Saul season 6, episode 2 "Carrot & Stick" breaking into the runaway's house. After ejecting the previous occupants of Nacho's home, Mike instructed a lackey to crack Nacho's safe while barking its measurements through a cellphone. Once the job was complete, Mike solemnly bagged the items within (stacks of cash and fake IDs for both Nacho and his father) before Victor arrived with a brand-new safe, which was wheeled into the exact position where the old one previously stood. Mike then put Nacho's cash into the new safe (not all of it, of course...), pocketed the fake ID for Nacho's dad, and added an envelope that wasn't there before. When Juan Bolsa (Javier Grajeda) arrived at Nacho's house later in the episode, Bolsa cracked the new safe and opened this envelope to discover a motel phone number. 041b061a72
