As for the Watcher NPC, I dunno who would fit well. Maybe a roommate of Carmen? Former sorority girl along with her and Babs, living in a apartment together after graduation (think Two Broke Girls)? Maybe this person sees James and Paul, drags Carmen over to talk/flirt? Meanwhile Lucy is being pushed out of the house by her parents, "Go socialize! Make some friends!" so she wanders over since nothing else seems to be happening. Jake is there because he's on vacation, but wants company. Lucy and Jake run into each other, recognize each other, start chatting. Lucy seems Carmen but is a bit hesitant to go talk to her, due to awkwardness of sorority situation.
I'd be picturing the scene starting out in a SoCal beach, so we've got the waves, then dunes/scrub grass, then a light forest/wooded area entering into light sprawl/suburbia. Hot days, still temperate nights.

Either way there'd be no real harm in including one, they can always fade into the background if they're getting in the way.
