The Seventh Wave, episode 40
BIG MAMA’S FUNERAL, PART 1. [TREATMENT.]
Angie Santangelo receives the two refrigerated boxes from Miami. It is careless of her not to recognize it as a warning, and develop some useful fear for her safety, a fear that might make her more careful, but she believes herself to be untouchable, and the Orphan to be nothing, and in the end such vanity will guarantee her death.
The boxes are delivered to the Holy Angel Casino & Resort by two men in FedEx uniforms in a liveried van, but afterwards no records of such a delivery will be found in the account books of the Federal Express Corporation. The van does not stop at the loading bay, as is normal, but draws up to the main entrance of the facility, and the two fake delivery men haul the boxes right up to the front reception desk, saying they have been told this is a personal express delivery for Ms Angela Santangelo. The receptionist, Shanelle, calls security to have the boxes examined before they are sent upstairs. When they are opened, each box is found to contain a severed human head and a printed note reading No deal.
After Big Mama sent her offer to the Orphan she had been peeved not to receive a courteous reply and had used her friendly connections to the Pappalardo family in New Jersey to send Jimmy Two Dinners a second message requesting a proper response. That this is the answer – the heads of the two Guidos, over ice – proves to her only one thing, that this Florida member of the well-known old Jersey family is a person without breeding or respect. The Orphan, she already knows to be a goon. Too bad about Jimmy. His parents should be embarrassed their kid turns out so poorly. But, guess what, fuck him.
