The Last Course – ACT II
Still convinced they’re on a reality game show, Brad (Michael Del Ray) attempts to get to know the quiet man sitting across the table from him at the mysterious dinner. Though the man isn’t willing to speak, his name tag tells the dinner guests that his name is Scott (Dante Colle). After presenting the first course, the Maitre D places a metal suitcase at the end of the table. Being a boisterous baddie, Kenny (Dakota Payne) tries to jimmy it open. Brad tells him not to cheat and that he wants to do it the right way so hopefully they’ll all actually walk away with a prize. Kenny reluctantly agrees and sits back down to tell the rest of the guests about the strange things he and Sebastian (Chris Damned) saw when they snuck away to suck dick.
The strait-laced Toby is disgusted by Kenny and Sebastian’s behavior and he asks how Sebastian knows their supposed host James (Johnny Ford). Kenny fills them in on Sebastian’s profession and Toby instantly judges Sebastian, telling him that he needs to repent. Still focused on the mystery, Brad asks Sebastian if there were any indicators of what was going on with James the last time Sebastian saw him. There were, but Sebastian doesn’t mention what happened on their very bizarre last encounter. He just informs the table that James is ‘fucking weird.’
The guests continue to talk about their connections to James. Brad was his first time. Toby dated him for six years, and just as Brad asks Robert, dinner is served. Saved by the salmon! Kenny interjects his own sordid story with James which angers Toby, who doesn’t want to hear about his ex-boyfriend’s romp with the raunchy guy. Toby and James met in church. Their love was pure, or at least Toby’s was. A flashback shows that James was less than loyal to his man at the time and managed to bed their friend Robert (Jim Fit) while Toby was in the shower. Some things are better left unsaid.
Brad focuses on trying to get Scott to open up and Scott is hostile in response. Brad attempts to calm everything down and Scott finally breaks, blurting that James Montgomery is a ‘sick piece of shit.’ Scott explains how he knows James and how awful things turned out between them. The dinner guests are reeling from Scott’s revelations. Brad is finally losing his cool. He doesn’t like how things are going. He didn’t sign up for this! As soon as he stands up from the table, the Maitre D leads him back to his seat. It’s time for the last course. Brad tells the guys that something’s wrong right as James enters the room. He’s using a cane, and he looks sick. He sits at the head of the table and thanks his guests for coming.
Now, they want to know why they’re there.
