Theme: First Impresssions
Arthur is: thick hair trapped with pomade and a dutiful comb, a suit cut and pressed and fully buttoned despite the Mombasa heat, and designer sunglasses hiding his eyes. He is: a mix of scents, tobacco and sweat and sweet but lightly spritzed cologne. He is: a clenched jaw, a stiff back, a firm handshake but no smile and no sincerity behind the "Good to meet you".
But then, Eames puked on his shoes, a tequila storm passing through him at just the wrong time. Later, in a sober moment, he'll admit that Arthur's cold shoulder response is well deserved.
