It's an episode of complicated plots. Dave and Elise struggle to understand the plot and world of Toni Dove's visually and formally inventive sci-fi noir SPECTROPIA (2006), and admire the plot of John Dahl's forgotten UNFORGETTABLE (1996). Elise explains why Ray Liotta is androgynous. Dave defends John Dahl's directorial distinctiveness. Anti-capitalist 1930s toasters anachronistically quote DETOUR (1945).
