Advertisement - Guide continues below
- Old Grace Cahill is on the verge of death, and she's about to change her will.
- As her attorney, William McIntyre, asks her if she's sure, Grace stares out the window and pets her cat, Saladin, like she's Dr. Claw.
- She and William have a cryptic talk about secrets and children and the fate of the world. Typical grandma talk.
- After Grace dies, William McIntyre tells a mysterious man in black to "Make sure they suspect nothing" (1.1).
- The man in black (not Johnny Cash) responds, "They'll never a clue" (1.25). Oh, really? We think they're about to get one. Or 39.
