Aquaman “Pilot” (part 9 of 11)
Not knowing what to do, A.C. heads back to the Sugar Shack to appeal to Eva, since, heck, she almost seemed to buy the thing about the dolphins, right? Eva, it seems, has A.C.’s gift for pithy summarization: “So this girl Nadia is actually a killer mermaid who wants to take you out because you’re some kind of underwater royalty?” Which she says as she flips randomly through a picture book about mermaids [?]. A.C. replies, “In a clamshell, yeah.” A clamshell? Ugh. Can we do the rest of this without A.C.? Is that at all possible?
Eva comments that they always looked so friendly on the Starbucks cups, which is a bit of a stretch. Who hears “mermaid” and immediately thinks Starbucks? I mean, mermaids make me think of that goofy TV movie Sabrina, Down Under before I would ever think of the Starbucks logo. But, um, maybe that tells you more about me than about Aquaman.
