I always assumed it was the wolf who was their gracious host for the night, but yeah, I always wondered what was going on in that scene. I wish we had an explanation for it.
And yes, I know you said you can't read anything longer than a short story, but try to start it and see if you don't keep reading.

"Let me repeat that: her friends the Shaggy Man (who owns a Love Magnet and currently has a donkey head), Button-Bright (who currently has a fox head), and Polychrome (who is a rainbow fairy) are skeptical about the idea of a Tin Man." You know, I never really thought of that until I read this...
Very well-written episode. My wife and I were noting that quite a bit of the interaction passed the Bechdel test, and I felt that even those scenes that didn't were vital to the story line.
Toggle Commented Aug 9, 2011 on "Omega Girls" - Comment Post at EUREKA UNSCRIPTED
My wife and I have been watching Eureka from the beginning, and one thing I've always appreciated is the accuracy in scientific discussion. (I have degrees in Physics, so I watch for that sort of thing.) Last night, when Felicia Day's character referred to a base on a Titan as an outpost to explore another "galaxy," I was at first taken aback, as I didn't think the writers on the show would have made that kind of mistake. Then we realized that it wasn't a mistake after all; presumably, Day's character means that it will be easier to activate the FTL drive from the remote moon of Titan, and if you have an FTL drive, you can in fact reach another galaxy. Anyway, the only reason I mention this is to compliment the writing staff on how careful you are with the science. For many reasons, including that one, Eureka is one of the few shows we try to watch as it is being broadcast.
Congratulations!
