'Room 104' Season 3 Episode 2 'Animal for Sale' will see Dale Dickey's character seek to acquire a 'temperamental beast'
'Room 104' Season 3 continues in the same path as its predecessors in the sense that it is an episodic anthology that documents the lives of people who cross through Room 104 of an American motel. In the premiere episode, we saw the beginning of Room 104 and what could actually be served as the reason behind some unexplainable incidents that have previously occurred in the room.
In the next episode titled 'Animal for Sale,' we will see an interesting exchange occur between two individuals. According to the official synopsis, in the episode, "The caretaker of an exotic animal meets with a woman who'd like to take the temperamental beast off his hands."
The episode stars Dale Dickey, Robert Longstreet and Tom Woodruff Jr. and from the stills, it looks like the caretaker in question is none other than Longstreet's character and the person who is looking to get the temperamental beast off of his hands is Dale Dickey's character. The two of them, in the stills released by HBO, look particularly disturbed and anxious, but we do not know why.
In the trailer of the show's season 3, we saw Dickey's character ask Longstreet's "Is that necessary?" when he puts on some gloves and this adds to the mystery about what exactly these two individuals are dealing with. Then, of course, there is also the still which sees Longstreet's character holding a wad of cash and Dickey's is seen talking to him with something in her hand.
The official synopsis is also interesting considering one of the stills released features the two actors speaking with a painting placed in the background. So is the wad of cash for the painting? If so where does the "temperamental beast" come into play?
Another interesting factor is the fact that no stills of Tom Woodruff Jr. have been released so far. The show adeptly sets the characters up to go on a journey each episode in under 25 minutes while keeping us, the audiences hooked to the many possibilities as each character in a given episode's struggle to make decisions. For instance, in the last episode, we saw how Remus (Luke Wilson) and Roma's (Christine Woods) late-night picnic dinner turned into a slasher horror when a supernatural being gatecrashed their party.
'Room 104' Season 3 Episode 2 will air Friday at 11 p.m. ET on HBO.
