From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
When Vercueil comes back to Mrs. Curren's house after Bheki kicks the daylights out of him, he has this random lady with him. She's kind of gross looking and has definitely been either hitting the bottle or doing some drugs. Her most memorable moment might just be when she takes a bottle of Mrs. Curren's perfume and dumps the whole thing over herself, making the house smell sickly sweet. Mrs. Curren gets Florence to help her get this woman out of her house and we never see the gal again.
