- Stephen and Mal's apartment
Early in the morning, Mal wakes up Stephen and asks him to make a cup of tea. In his early-morning wisdom, Stephen decides to microwave Mal's favorite mug, which just so happens to be made of metal. Of course, the mug catches on fire.
On the upside, the fire seems to be the spark that Stephen needs to have one of the most productive days he's had in a while.
