After the Baudelaires find the Quagmire triplets, they discover that Esme Squalor isn't all she seemed. The Librarian from Prufrock Prep takes an interest in the Baudelaires and visits Mr Poe, where she meets Jaqueline who puts her in contact with Jacques Snicket. The Baudelaires lose the Quagmires again and think they are being kept in a box being auctioned off and labelled VFD. Unfortunately this turns out to be a red herring.Written by

Towards the end of the episode start at around the 38:30 marker, there is a modern-looking car (possibly a Fiat make) parked across the street behind Mr. Poe as he talks with the children. The car can better be seen behind Snicket to his right when Snicket continues narrating a moment later. Although the time setting is ambiguous, most of the series is seemingly closer to the 1940s-1950s and any advanced technology is loosely referenced (ie: streaming TV shows on the internet) or absurdly depicted.

The orphans are still in the clutches of their latest guardians, esme and julian squalor, in the penthouse of 667 dark avenue. what will be the fate of their friends, the quagmires, and how is the mysterious auction involved?
the second season often reminds me of the visual style of "the addams family" movies that barry sonnenfeld directed (his name is in the mix of creative people involved). nathan fillion and tony hale are welcome additions to this odd universe.
