Deadly Daughter Switch (2020) Movie Script

- Leave me alone!
- Hey!
Get away from me, John.
I mean it.
- C-can't we-can't we just talk?
- No!
- Where are you going?
- I am having this baby!
[intense music]
- It's not fair, Alexis.
- Life's not fair.
This is crazy, you're barely 18.
I'm an adult, John.
I'm gonna be an amazing mother
with or without you.
- Move!
- I'm not saying that.
Then what are you saying, John?
This is a mistake.
Maybe you were the mistake.
- I'm having this baby.
- I won't let you do it.
- I'm not moving, alright!
- Out of the way, John!
- I'm not moving!
- Move now!
- Now get out of the car!
- Move now!
[intense music]
What are you do..
No, no, no!
Hold my head
Till the courage sticks
Shine no light
(female #1) 'Thanks to your
support, The Hillside Park project'
will soon be the centerpiece
of Downtown Aniston.
All for you and your families
to enjoy.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
So, please feel free to explore.
- Great job, boss.
- This was a team effort.
Mm-hmm. Well, then you're
the best team captain ever.
[phone beeps]
Oh, it's Hailey, she organized
a blood drive at her school
and I promised I would donate.
I gotta go.
Yeah, go.
I got this covered.
- Hey, Brooke. I'm proud of you.
- Yeah?
I couldn't have done this
without my bestie.
- Bye, honey.
- Bye.
I need you to hold me up
don't break
I need you to..
Told you. Easy peasy.
Now we match.
We just need dad and we'll be
one big, happy donating family.
Hey, I'm looking for the
extraordinary little lady
who put this whole thing
You made it.
I wouldn't miss it
for the world.
Come on, Hailey, we gotta post
it on the Insta-picture story.
I totally forgot.
I will be right back.
'Hey, can someone send a nurse
back over to my dad?'
- She's a good kid.
- She really is.
You know she gets that from me,
Really? I was thinking
she definitely gets it from me.
- A perfect combo?
- Yeah.
[instrumental music]
[music continues]
[music continues]
[humming continues]
Oh, I know that look.
Who is he?
- It's nothing.
- It doesn't look like nothing.
And don't you have a calculus
test you should be studying for?
- I'm good. Mm-hmm.
- You're good?
Remember not to be late
for all you classes today.
Yeah, I'll check my schedule.
Very funny.
- Love you.
- 'I love you more.'
- 'Good luck, okay?'
- Thank you.
- I'll see you later.
- Okay.
- Have a great day.
- You, too.
- 'Love you.'
- Love you, too.
O Rh positive.
That can't be right.
No, that's not right.
We had them
test her blood type at birth.
I know I have those records.
This is just a mistake.
They made a mistake.
She's AB negative like Carter,
I'm sure of it.
Okay, Hailey's medical records.
They say AB negative.
So how could she possibly be
O Rh positive?
No, there's definitely
a mistake here.
(Hailey on phone)
Mom, what's up?
(Brooke) I'm calling an
emergency family meeting.
Let's meet at the restaurant
after school.
Should I be worried?
We'll figure out together.
That's not very reassuring.
(Carter) We'll see you later.
Don't worry, honey.
I'm still trying to understand
what exactly you're saying.
Your donor card
from the blood drive
it didn't match
your birth records.
Well, it's probably a mistake.
I thought that too, so I
confirmed Hailey's blood type
with Blood Donor Connect,
and they, they are not the same.
'I'm still confused.'
'Mom, explain this, please.'
'If my blood type now
doesn't match my birth records'
what does that mean?
Are you telling me
I'm not your daughter?
Let's not jump to conclusions.
We'll go to Hillside Medical,
we'll get to the bottom of this.
I've actually set up a DNA test
and we have a meeting with
Dr. Joyce, too.
So that, you know, we know...
If I'm really your child.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
I'm positive there's a
reasonable explanation for this.
Yeah, sure.
This is an awesome
family dinner.
Well, shall we order?
I'm not hungry.
'We need an explanation.'
Unfortunately, I can say with
absolute certainty
that Hailey is not
your biological daughter.
My God.
Is there a chance
that the results are incorrect?
I'm sorry.
- Hillside Medical apologizes...
- Apologizes?
And takes full responsibility.
We are investigating
what happened, how it happ...
Can you just give us
a minute please?
Are they going to
take me away from you?
No, you are our daughter,
and we love you
and we are gonna figure this out
together as a family.
Your mom is right, okay?
You understand that
you are my daughter, right?
But I'm not. Not really.
If I'm not your real daughter,
then who's my real mom?
[instrumental music]
Hey, mom.
Another double shift?
I'm starting to feel guilty.
Come over here.
Come, sit.
Did I wake you up?
No, I just fell asleep.
Oh, yeah.
Hey, can I have some of that?
No. No, this is for
our first real vacation.
I'm keeping my promise.
Twenty-five percent of
everything I make
is going towards
our girls' trip up the coast.
Another month and we'll be set.
Actually, I've been doing
some research. Come look.
'Oh, wow.'
Breanne, this looks perfect.
Do you think
we could stay there?
I do. Yeah.
In fact, I promise you
we will definitely be
staying here.
- Yay.
- Yay.
What's this?
(man on TV) 'We're is
reaching out to the public.'
'And specifically,
those with daughters'
born on December 29th, 2003
and to please come
and take a DNA test.
You can go to
their website for a list
of the girls born on that date.
'Hillside will cover
all expenses.'
What's this about?
(man on TV)
'They are determined'
'to resolve this
unthinkable mishap.'
That's my birthday.
And you were born
at Hillside Medical.
I don't know.
[instrumental music]
As I told the Jenkins family
in all my years of working
at Hillside Medical
'an error of this magnitude
has never occurred.'
What do you expect us to do?
Just swap daughters?
- 'This is ridiculous.'
- 'I understand you're afraid.'
- No one is taking my daughter.
- 'No.'
No one is taking your daughter.
This meeting is simply to allow
both you and Mrs. Jenkins
'to meet your respective
biological daughters.'
And since we are all in
uncharted territory
we have arranged for
Susan Messer
'our on-staff family counselor'
'to help us navigate
the difficult emotions'
'that this event
has inevitably stirred up.'
'The first step
is an open discussion'
about all of the possible
'Ms. Messer will act as a
mediator of sorts. Make sense?'
Where was the nurse
who was on call that day?
Nurse Cameron passed away
a few years ago
so we were unable to determine
what may have happened. Susan?
After speaking to my colleagues
and taking in to consideration
the girls age
'and level of maturity'
'we feel the healthiest
course of action'
is to let your daughters decide
where they wish to reside.
- 'What?'
- 'I'm sorry.'
(Brooke) Let our daughters decide?
They're just children.
So how do you expect them to
make that kind of decision?
I assure you,
their happiness and well-being
'is our primary concern.'
'The girls would spend
an agreed upon amount of time'
'in their biological
parents' household'
'allowing them to acclimate
and make an informed decision.'
You make it sound so clinical.
It's not like taking a new car
out for a test drive.
These are our teenage daughters.
Exactly. I just don't feel
comfortable with this.
- Mom.
- What?
- I-I...
- What? I mean.. Well, he's ju..
(Alexis) 'From what I've been
told, I don't stand a chance.'
They're clearly are from
a better neighborhood
'better school district.'
It just doesn't seem fair.
Susan and I will be available
to you for guidance
until you reach a resolution.
Why don't we schedule
the first visits?
[intense music]
[door opens]
- You all set there?
- Yeah, yeah.
I was just gonna, you know,
take these to the deposit box.
That's not your job.
I know.
Barb asked me to.
So I, you know,
I thought I'd help.
- Alexis.
- Oh, I gotta go.
- Hand it over. Alexis!
- I gotta go. I'm late.
- What?
- You know what.
Hand over your apron and all
that cash that you stole.
- What are you talking about?
- You're fired.
For what?
I didn't do anything.
Well, let me count it then.
Let me explain.
You don't understand.
No. I don't care.
She's all I have
and I'm losing her.
That's not my problem.
I have to keep
my promise to her.
- I have to have her choose me.
- But I'm sorry, Alexis.
I'm losing my daughter
and I cannot handle that.
Alexis! I don't even know
what you're talking about.
I think maybe taking all these
extra shifts
has taken a toll on you,
but you're not making any sense.
- So give me back my money.
- Get your hands off me!
Fred? Fred?
Fred? Oh, God.
[intense music]
What have I done?
Is she doing okay?
She's pretty weirded out.
Yeah, we all are.
You've been so busy being strong
that I don't think
you've even processed how crazy
this whole thing is.
I'm just putting
my daughter first.
Our daughter.
Well, I guess that's not true.
- She's not our daughter.
- And that's my fault.
Because I insisted
that we take the DNA test?
- I didn't say that.
- What would you rather us do?
Just live a lie
for the rest of our lives?
The lie was working, Brooke.
We were happy.
The truth
on the other hand is what's
destroying this family,
that's all it's doing.
I know, but this is
our new reality
'and it's gonna be
the hardest thing'
that we've ever
had to go through.
But how have we gotten through
every other challenge
in our life, hmm?
- I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry, too.
[intense music]
Did you just get home?
You scared me.
Yeah, we were just,
we were so busy tonight.
- 'Mom. Are you okay?'
- Huh?
- What?
- You're shaking.
Yeah, no, I, I was going, going,
I didn't eat anything today.
- But yeah, I'm totally fine.
- Mom, you need to slow down.
- Okay?
- Yeah.
It's okay.
- I'm fine, honey. I'm fine.
- Okay.
You know I would do
anything for you, right?
- Yeah. Yeah, I know.
- Right?
- Anything.
- Of course, yeah.
What are you doing up?
Go to bed.
- It's so late.
- I love you.
I love you, too.
- Okay. Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
'So this is the backyard.'
(Breanne) 'Oh, my God.
You guys have a pool.'
Wow. This is like
something out of a magazine.
Really, this place is amazing.
That prunus nigras?
It is.
That is impressive. Yeah.
- You like plants.
- Ah, yeah.
Botany is kind of my passion.
Oh, mine too.
[Carter chuckles]
'Wonder where that comes from.'
Thanks for meeting me.
I hope this place is okay.
Yeah. Actually, this is
one of my mom's favorite spots.
I mean, you know, my other..
No, Brooke will always
be your mom.
But now you have, like,
a new mom.
- Or I don't know, a friend?
- Yeah.
- Whatever you decide.
- Right.
What can I get for you?
May I please have the
chicken salad with no tomatoes?
I'm allergic.
I will also have the
chicken salad with no tomatoes.
I'm also allergic.
Like mother like daughter,
My whole life
I always wanted to know
who my real dad was.
Here you are.
I can't imagine
how hard that was for you.
- And my real mom.
- Of course.
You look so much like John.
My dad?
Who is he?
Uh, where is he?
Well, unfortunately he,
he died before you were born.
- Car accident.
- Oh.
I'm sorry.
I am finishing up a project at
the Hillside Community Center.
I'd love for you to come down
and see what I do every day.
I mean, that would be amazing.
Yeah, and if you and Alexis are
free tomorrow
we'd like to host the barbecue.
- I'd like that.
- Good.
Okay. You guys need a refill?
- Ah, yes, please.
- Okay.
- Yes, please. Thank you.
- Thanks.
Alright, I'll be back.
How old were you
when you had me?
Ah, just slightly older
than you.
Was too young.
I was pretty lost.
Very lost, actually.
I was not happy.
I'm sorry.
It was my first year
of community college.
I was on the volleyball team
and he was my assistant coach.
Another thing I'm not proud of.
But then I knew, I knew that you
were meant to come
into the world, and when you
did, I suddenly had my purpose.
My purpose is to be a mother.
that is all you need to know.
(Brooke) How did it go
with Alexis today, honey?
I had so many questions, but..
...I don't know, she didn't
really wanna talk about it.
Maybe it's hard for her to
talk to you about it.
You know what I mean?
He was her assistant volleyball
coach at her community college.
But that's all I know.
It's not like I even knew him.
- What if I talk to her?
- No, mom.
- Please don't.
- Are you sure?
I mean, other than that
she was cool.
I told her I wanted to
get to know her better.
But I feel guilty.
Almost like I'm betraying you.
No. No, no, no.
Don't do that.
We're all in this together
and we're all doing
the best that we can.
So no guilt.
How about you?
Did you like your real daughter?
Baby, just because she is my
biological daughter
doesn't mean that
you... aren't my real daughter.
Well, you know what I mean.
I do like her.
And I think
you will like her too.
I love you, sweetheart.
I love you, too.
[instrumental music]
'No results?'
(Breanne) 'Yeah, I don't know.
I just thought it could be fun.'
Oh, yeah, no, no, of course,
honey, we'll go.
We can go to the barbecue.
- Great.
- Yeah.
Hey, uh, did you know that
she's a landscape architect?
- How cool is that?
- Oh, yeah, that is pretty cool.
- Right?
- Yeah.
Oh, but does she know that your
favorite sandwich is a BLT?
- Extra B and no crust?
- She does not.
- Oh, but I do.
- Yes, you do.
- Yes.
- Okay, I don't wanna be late.
Okay. Oh, yeah. Okay.
- Bye. Love you.
- Bye. Love you.
Oh, um, by the way,
I just want you to know
I'm-I'm not gonna be
around like this much longer.
Ah, what are you talking about?
Oh, you know, they're only gonna
keep the coffee shop closed
for another couple days
because of Fred's accident.
So, it's true,
he really just slipped.
Yeah, that's what
the police think.
My guess is, they're just
too lazy to do the paperwork.
Nick, please.
But on the bright side, I can go
to the barbecue tomorrow.
- That's true.
- Mm-hmm.
- Hey, I love you.
- Love you, too.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Picked up some extra shifts.
Hope it helps out.
'This is really nice.'
'I'm glad we're taking the time
to get to know each other.'
(Alexis) 'Yeah, well,
if there's one thing for sure'
'in all this confusion'
we'll definitely be seeing
a lot more of each other.
- Yeah.
- I look forward to it.
- Yeah.
- Alright.
See ya.
Hey, Alexis?
I'm sorry, there was just, um.. thing that we didn't
get a chance to talk about.
Hailey shared with me what you
told her about her birth father.
Yeah, yeah, there's,
there's not much to tell.
She just wants to know
as much as she can.
Right, I understand,
that's totally natural.
So did a little research,
you know, online.
And, you know, the thing is
there wasn't anything about
a-a death of a coach
at Aniston Community College
that school year.
Really? Huh.
Well, you know, he was just
the assistant to the coach.
So maybe Google
didn't catch that little detail.
Got it. Yeah.
But, you know, I would
absolutely be happy
to tell her any stories about
her father next time I see her.
That would be really great,
She's just, you know
searching for
some kind of connection.
Yeah. Yeah, absolutely.
Of course.
I gotta.. Alright.
- Yeah, I'll see you later.
- I gotta go. Okay.
- Enjoy the rest of your day.
- Yeah.
- 'Alright. Thank you. Bye.'
- You, too.
[intense music]
What are you up to, Brooke?
[music continues]
And you're positive
that John Beckham was
the only assistant volleyball
coach that school year?
Positive. And he didn't die
in a car crash either.
He just up and quit one day.
He wanted to start over anew.
Broke a lot of hearts.
- He's alive?
- Yeah.
I talked to him
not too long ago.
He needed a letter
of recommendation.
I guess he's gonna start
coaching again.
Do you think I could
get his contact information?
Unfortunately I can't do that.
But look,
given your circumstances
I can tell you
that he is coaching
at Rossmore Junior College.
That's in Northern California.
'Thank you.'
- I hope it helps.
- It does.
Listen, I was about to
go for a run.
- Uh, can I walk you out?
- 'Sure.'
Thanks again. Bye.
Nice to meet you.
[intense music]
Jesus! Alexis?
- What did you say to her?
- What?
- What did you say to her?
- I told her the truth.
Now, look,
maybe you should tell me
exactly what's going on here.
I have no idea
what you're talking about.
Everything I've ever worked for
has been to protect my daughter.
And I will continue
to do that... at all costs.
Do you understand me?
Alexis, I don't know
what you're involved in.
But you know what?
I don't wanna know.
So if you'll excuse me,
I gotta go.
[dramatic music]
Why would Alexis lie
about him being dead?
She must have a good reason.
We don't know
anything about this guy.
I mean, do you think
she told Breanne
the same lie her whole life?
We shouldn't jump
to any conclusions
before we talk to Alexis.
My dad is alive and I wanna know
why she lied about it
'to me and to Breanne.'
Can you just be patient, honey?
Just-just for today.
'Because it should be
about you and Breanne.'
Yeah, I agree with your mom.
Not today.
Hold off just-just for today.
[doorbell ringing]
We gotta get that.
[instrumental music]
- Love you.
- I love you.
So... there's no one.
Okay, there's one.
His name is Jake Matthews.
'I knew it.'
The real question is
does he like you back?
I heard he might,
but I don't know.
(Brooke) 'Well, it looks the
girls are getting along great.'
Yeah, like sisters.
We were hoping
they would hit it off.
I mean, I don't need to
pretend to be perfect
but I'd like to think
I've done an okay job with her.
Oh, you've done
an incredible job.
Yeah, you really have.
And you guys, I mean
you've raised an incredible
young woman with Hailey.
I just want you to know,
I will always be in her life
no matter what she decides.
I can't imagine what it must be
like to have a dad and a mom,
a real family.
So, you never got to meet
your dad? Or our dad?
No. He died before we were born.
You never tried to find him?
Find him?
I just said he was dead.
Right. I'm sorry.
I wasn't thinking.
It's okay.
I guess this is what they mean
when they say
dual income household, right?
Two gainfully employed
professionals working together?
Yeah, we are very fortunate.
Sure it wasn't easy
doing it alone.
It's, yeah, well,
it's been... challenging.
For the record, I contribute
to the household, too.
Hey, why don't you
slow down a bit, babe?
I just think it's funny.
How much you love playing the
grieving widow when the truth...
- That's enough.
- Do not interrupt me.
'Nick, settle down.'
(Alexis) 'Hey, Breanne,
honey, it's time to go.'
- 'Say your goodbyes.'
- Why?
Don't worry about why.
- I'm so sorry about him.
- Am I making you uncomfortable?
He still gets jealous of a man
who died before Breanne was ev...
He's not dead, Alexis!
Why can't you...
Shut up!
Mom, what is he saying?
- He's drunk... again.
- I'm not drunk.
Is he telling the truth?
Tell her.
It's her father for God's sake.
Why are you doing this?
Why don't we just stay calm?
Mom, tell her what you told me.
Not now, honey.
what are you talking about?
It wasn't supposed to
come out like this.
We're sure that
you have your reasons.
We found John. Alive.
Breanne. Honey.
Try to understand.
Your father was not a good man.
He-he didn't want me to have you
so I, I pretended he was dead
to protect you.
To protect me?
What else have you been
protecting me from?
Nothing. Nothing.
Please, come back to the house.
- I will, I'll explain it.
- No!
I am staying here.
How could you do this?
Hey, hey, it's okay.
No, get away from me!
I'll be in the car.
Alexis, I'm so sorry...
Don't! Don't be sorry, Brooke.
Admit it, this is exactly
what you wanted, isn't it?
It's kind of perfect actually,
Make me look like
the worst mother ever
so you can take both of them.
And I lose everything.
No, Alexis. We want the girls...
Exactly, you want the girls.
And you always get
what you want, don't you?
Alexis, wait.
[intense music]
- I'm sorry.
- She's not coming back.
You don't know that for sure.
- She chose them over me.
- For tonight.
And Hailey, Hailey does not want
anything to do with me
after this.
Why? Why? Why did you
have to come tonight?
It's my fault. I'm sorry.
Oh, my God. I've made
so many excuses for you.
I've made excuses to myself,
I've made excuses to Breanne.
How have I not left you yet?
You're blowing things
out of proportion...
No, I am not!
We are done. I want you out.
- Alexis...
- No, get out of my car! Go!
Wow, okay, okay.
[intense music]
[knock on door]
- Come in.
- Hi.
- Thanks for the PJs.
- Yeah.
It's one of the nice things
about having
another teenage girl
in the house
there's plenty of stuff to
That's true.
Would it be okay
if I stayed a little longer?
Yeah. Yeah.
We'll just have to talk to
your mom first, you know?
I did speak with the principal
and he knows that you're coming
to school with Hailey tomorrow.
And if after tomorrow,
you'd like to stay longer..
...we'll figure it out.
I, uh, I don't really know
what I want.
I just know that I, uh,
I feel safe here.
You are.
[intense music]
I love you, baby.
I'll be better for you.
I'll be so much better for you.
What a day, huh?
It was just a matter of time.
This whole situation
would drive anybody crazy.
(man on TV)
'...died unexpectedly today'
'during his routine
afternoon workout.'
Wait, hold on.
Can you pause it?
Pause it please.
(man on TV)
'...fell to his death.
[intense music]
Carter... I was just with him.
I was just talking to him.
That's a little eerie.
What is it?
It's just odd.
(Alexis on phone) Breanne, hey,
it's mom again. Where are you?
Come on, Breanne, call me back.
We really need to talk.
I am your mother.
[intense music]
Breanne, where are you?
Breanne, Breanne, Breanne,
Breanne, Breanne, Breanne.
Breanne, where are you?
On the coast
when she's feeling down
Tryin' to find her way out
- Hey, you all good?
- Yeah.
It only hurts
when I'm not around
Does everyone dress
this nice every day?
Yeah, pretty much.
Hey, guys, so this is what's up.
Breanne, this is all about you.
Yes, get in. Okay.
This is Breanne's
first day of school
and her first day as a member
of the crew.
Because, seriously,
let's be honest
any friend of Hailey's
is a friend of ours.
Or, in this case, sisters!
Sisters switched at birth.
Is that not insane?
OMG, you guys are swisters.
'I am so hashtagging that.'
Okay, I'll see you guys around.
Bye. Swisters?
- I like it.
- Yeah, me too.
- What's up, Hailey?
- Oh, hi, Jake.
Oh, this is Breanne.
- What's up, Breanne?
- Hi.
So, Hailey, did you have fun
at Braden's party last weekend?
Liked hangin' with you.
We should do it again sometime.
- Yeah. I'm down too.
- 'Cool.'
- Looking forward to it.
- 'Bye.'
I am such a dork.
- "Totes?" Who says that?
- Don't worry. Don't worry.
He definitely likes you.
A 100 percent.
And, dude, I said, "I'm down."
Isn't that like from the '70s
or something?
- I think it is.
- I think it might be.
[bell rings]
This way.
Okay, here we go.
Hey, love. I'm off to The Looney
Bean for a coffee run.
- 'Get you your fav?'
- No, I'm good.
Passing on a mocha-macchiato?
That's a first.
You alright?
Yeah. Yeah.
I just want to make sure
everything is perfect for
the grand opening next weekend.
If I didn't know you better,
I'd think you're distracting
yourself with all this work to
avoid the craziness at home.
Oh, babe.
So what happens now?
- You have two daughters?
- Potentially, yes.
Which is..
It's amazing. I'm just feeling
guilty, you know. I..
I can't imagine what
Alexis is going through.
Yeah. I'm..
Of course. I get it.
But, I mean..
Ultimately, it's,
it's the girls' decision, right?
And I feel guilty about
that too.
Stop. Uh!
Wait.. Okay. This..
This is kind of morbid,
but... what about custody
if something were to happen
to you and Carter?
I don't know. I really haven't
thought that far down the road.
Eh-eh, I'm-I'm sorry.
- Yeah. No. Too many questions.
- No, no, no. It's important.
We're gonna meet with Dr. Joyce
and the counselor.
And I definitely will
bring that up.
(Viv) 'Or you could talk
about it right now.'
I will bring you back a small
macchiato, just in case.
- Oh.
- Hi.
(Alexis) 'Sorry to bust in on your work.
Are you too busy?'
No, no, no, no, no.
What's going on?
I wanted Breanne to have
some of her things.
She's not responding to me. So..
So she hasn't talked to you?
About what?
She asked if she should could
stay with us a little longer.
- Of course she did.
- 'I'm sorry. I really am.'
I think the kids are
just tryin' to
you know,
sort through all of this.
Imagine what they're feeling,
I do. Actually,
that's all I think about.
- She loves you so much.
- I know that.
I know she loves me.
I don't even doubt that.
'Well, I wasn't..'
- 'You know..'
- Mm-hm.
I think we just have to trust
that, uh...
Okay, well, you know what,
I gotta get to work.
So would you just
give those to her please?
- Of course, yeah.
- 'Yeah. Thanks.'
- 'I'll talk to you soon.'
- Yep.
[dramatic music]
[indistinct chatter]
Yes, it is okay.
This is Breanne's
first day at school.
And, in this case, sisters!
Yes, you guys. They are sisters
switched at birth.
Al, get off your phone. The new
manager is cracking the whip.
[dramatic music]
Hey, Breanne!
- Hailey!
- What's she doing here?
[car door closes]
Can we talk?
Um, I'm gonna just
wait for you inside.
You're not returning any
of my phone calls or texts.
Please don't pressure me, mom.
I-I just need time.
Are you ever going to
forgive me?
You lied to me my whole life.
No. No. Don't say that.
You know
I was just protecting you.
I need to go.
Wait, I booked our trip.
- You did?
- Yes!
Yeah, and-and I booked that
hotel you wanted and everything.
How'd you get the money?
You said you needed
a few more months.
Just, you know I..
All those extra s-shifts.
Steampunk was closed, mom.
What are you doing?
Baby, I made a promise to you..
You know I always find a way,
- You're lying again.
- No.
- What are you doing?
- No, I, I booked the trip!
You have to come with me.
Please, you have to come..
I don't even know
who you are anymore.
I'm your mother!
Breanne, I'm your,
I'm your mama.
Sixteen years. Sixteen years!
No way! No way! No way!
Two jobs, night shifts.
All for you, baby.
All for you! 16 years.
And this is what you wanna do.
You wanna leave me for her?
I'm not gonna let that happen.
Oh, no.
Oh, no!
I will not let you do that.
This is not how we do this.
You need me. I need you.
I need you. You need me!
[dramatic music]
[instrumental music]
'...I think it's time
you got a new assistant.'
[indistinct chatter]
- 'Okay?'
- 'Okay.'
[indistinct chatter]
- 'Bye, love you. Drive safely.'
- 'I will.'
[music continues]
[engine sputtering]
'Hey, Viv.'
You know, you shouldn't be
riding at night.
It's very dangerous.
'Crazy people out there.'
[music continues]
Hey, go! Go!
Just collateral damage.
[indistinct chatter]
[Viv groans]
[Alexis chuckling]
- Workin' on a Sunday?
- Yeah.
- We are in the home stretch.
- Wow!
Well, you know what you've
done with the place, it's..
It's inspiring.
'It's kind of amazing.'
That's really sweet of you.
Thank you for saying that.
Yeah, well, it's true.
Anyways, um.. you go.
From Dr. Joyce.
Mediation papers, I think.
I was too upset to read them.
I'm miserable, Brooke.
I don't know
how to be without her.
Oh, geez.
Come here. Come sit.
- Are you okay?
- 'I have to be.'
I mean, Breanne made her choice.
And Hailey.. Well, Hailey,
you know.. Let's be real.
She's not gonna want to leave
her perfect family
to come and live with
an unemployed waitress.
- So..
- What do you mean unemployed?
They, they're doing this big
remodel and I'm just..
I mean, it's a joke.
A week's notice
that's all they gave me.
They had the gall to say
I could come back.
But what do they expect me
to do?
I'm just not gonna make it
two months without income.
I'll be honest, this has been
the worst week of my life.
I lost my daughter..
I lost my job. I'll probably
lose my house next.
But, oh, my God!
I'm being a such a baby..
- You know, this is...
- No, but I'm a fighter.
I will pull through this.
- It'll be okay.
- Can I help you?
No. No.
No. You've done so much.
You've been so generous.
Well, no, listen, um..
My assistant, uh..
God, this is crazy.
She, uh..
She got into a bike accident
- A, a hit and run.
- Oh, my God. Is she okay?
Yeah, considering,
you know, it was..
- Do they who did it?
- No, they don't.
They don't know.
How about you, you fill in
for her while she's gone.
You know. At least
get me through the opening.
- 'Cause I can use the help.
- I don't know what to say.
I mean, I have a few shifts
left at Steampunk
but I'll make it work.
I won't let you down.
Thank you.
- Okay. Perfect.
- Thank you.
[dramatic music]
[car door closes]
[indistinct chatter]
That's really funny.
(Brooke) 'So, Breanne,
what did you think of the school?'
Everyone was really,
really nice.
It was a lot different
than my school.
- But I felt like I belonged.
- 'That's because you do.'
Hashtag Swisters!
- 'Swisters.'
- Yeah, I saw that.
What-what is that?
Sisters switched at birth,
which is us.
- 'This is..'
- Very clever.
[girls laughing]
[girls laughing]
[girls laughing]
'That's a pretty necklace.'
Uh, it was in the box of things
that my mom gave you.
I got it for my sweet 16.
You know she's welcome here
whenever you want, okay?
Thank you for that.
(Carter) 'Yeah,
she's still your legal guardian.'
Speaking of which, we'd like to
discuss something
with you girls tonight.
We decided that if anything were
to happen to your father and I
Alexis should be your legal
Why? Is something wrong
with you guys?
- No, absolutely not. No.
- 'No, no, no.'
- We're good.
- 'No, we're-we're fine.'
We're fine.
'She is your biological mother.'
And she did raise you.
So we think that
this just makes sense.
Will she be able to afford to
raise both of us?
Well, she would move in
to the house here with you two.
This conversation is starting to
freak me out a little bit.
As your parents we want to make
sure that we're prepared
for all possible scenarios.
You guys talk about everything,
don't you?
- No secrets.
- 'Nope.'
[chuckles softly]
'Who wants dessert?'
- I do.
- 'Oh, yes.'
- 'Okay.'
- She can't have any.
- Uh, she can't have any.
- 'Why not?'
Well, we're all getting some.
One, two and..
- 'We're gonna have some..'
- Oh, yay!
You guys too.
[girls laughing]
'Cause it probably tastes
better than mine.
[both chuckle]
- Alright, swisters.
- 'Alright.'
[indistinct chatter]
[all laughing]
[all laughing]
Are you sure you really
want to do this?
Yeah, what's the alternative?
Breanne grew up believing
her father was dead.
Hailey wants to know who her
real biological father is.
We have to do this.
What if, what if he left her
for a reason? I mean..
What if he wants nothing
to do with her?
Well, then, this is how
we're gonna find out the truth.
Don't you want to know?
You're always gonna be
Hailey's father.
Well, let's..
...put the ball in his court.
- No pun intended.
- Okay.
[door opens]
Hey, Carter!
'What's up?'
Who the heck would do that?
Oh, mom!
You have to call the police.
I'll handle it.
You girls get to school.
That's so messed up.
Yeah, I'd like to report
a vandalization, please.
[engine sputtering]
'Sure, I'll hold.
Thank you.'
(Brooke) I just thought it'd
be weird to bring this up
on your first day tomorrow.
'That's why I came here.'
'In the case of the untimely
or accidental death'
in addition to custody,
we'd also deed you the home
and a portion of our savings
to supplement your income.
Why are you doing this?
(Brooke) 'Well, both of our
parents are getting on in years'
and considering our
extraordinary circumstances
we just think
it's the right decision.
You don't have to decide
right away.
I don't-I don't even know
what to say. I mean..
It's such a generous gesture.
Well, like I said, I can just
have our attorney draft up
a contract
and send it over to you
when you're ready.
What are you doing?
Ah! My car got vandalized
last night
so I'm just calling
a car real fast.
You know what, actually,
I'll just drive you.
Oh, no. I..
It's actually...
No, cancel that.
- Done.
- Wow.
I'll drive you
on my way to work.
But I just got to go change
real fast.
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
Hang out, make yourself at home.
Sounds like a pretty sweet deal.
- Nick, I thought you left.
- 'I'm almost done.'
I'll be back after work
with the last of my stuff.
- I quit.
- What?
I'm starting a new job,
assisting the most successful
landscape architect in the city.
- When did this happen?
- Jealous? Bye, Barb.
Alexis, don't do anything..
' might regret.'
Hey, guys, we're here at the
community center with my mom..
- Our mom.
- Yes.
(Brooke) 'Oh,
and we're excited to see you'
at the grand opening
this weekend.
- Ah! So exciting!
- 'Is that okay?'
- 'Yeah.'
- 'Okay.'
Here we go..
[dramatic music]
[music continues]
(Alexis) 'I know you're
in here somewhere'
[instrumental music]
(Nick) 'I'm here for
the rest of my stuff.'
What are you.. Whoa, hey!
- Hey, that thing's loaded.
- I know.
I was hoping you could show me
how to use it.
- Why would I do that?
- No reason.
(Nick) 'Alexis,
I know things aren't great between us'
but if somethin' is goin' on,
you know you can tell me, right?
- Of course. Yeah.
- Good.
I don't want you to
get in trouble without me.
It's all in place, you know.
- What's all in place?
- The living trust.
Now I just have to execute it.
'Come on! This is a mistake.'
This is a mistake.
No, Nick, you're the mistake.
Never mind.
(Nick) 'Alexis,
I can't let you do this.'
I can't let you do this!
Who are you calling?
- Just check-checkin' my texts.
- Were you?
- Why would you do this?
- Alexis, you need help.
Oh, really? Yeah.
I definitely need help.
I chose you as a boyfriend.
- You're not gonna shoot me.
- I know that.
I'm not gonna shoot you
because I'm not that stupid.
[dramatic music]
[door opens]
[Alexis grunting]
[Alexis grunting]
[breathing heavily]
(man on phone)
My boyfriend and I were..
'I think he broke his neck.'
- 'Hello.'
- Look, sweetie..
Thank God you answered.
I don't even know what happened.
There's been an accident.
[music continues]
I chased after him, but he
tripped and he fell and..
Like I told the police..
[sniffling] We were just having this
argument and he ran out the door
'and I chased after him, but
then he tripped and he fell.'
'And I don't..'
I don't even know what happened.
And then he..
It's just..
[sniffling] All I can see is him
just falling down the stairs..
How can I ever go back there?
You know what, don't worry.
You can stay here until
you figure out a plan, okay?
No, I can't do that.
That's-that's way too much, no.
No, it's not a problem at all.
- Are you sure?
- Yeah.
I'm gonna get your room ready.
You must be hungry.
Girls, can you get Alexis
something to eat?
No, no, no.
I mean, I'm.. I can't eat.
Thank you though.
Well, I'll just grab
your towels then.
We're here for you.
Honey, I swear I promise
I'll-I'll be out in a few days.
Mom, don't be ridiculous.
Stay as long as you need.
Why do I keep losing
the people I love?
You haven't lost me, mom.
I have missed you.. much.
Maybe tonight
happened for a reason.
Maybe I'm supposed to be here.
Maybe. Um..
I should get to bed.
It's getting late.
You're all set up here.
I don't know what I would do
without you.
Goodnight, Alexis.
[instrumental music]
You know I feel for Alexis,
Well, it's just,
a lot have happened.
[indistinct chatter]
I think she's handling it
pretty well.
- Like, a little too well?
- What do you mean?
All these tragic events have
happened and as a result
she has a great job,
she's under our roof
'she's closer to the kids
than ever.'
- What are you saying?
- Are we being naive?
I mean, it's just temporary.
You know.
Don't make too much out of it.
- Okay.
- Let's get some sleep.
[Carter sighs]
[instrumental music]
Only temporary.
- Good morning.
- Morning, girls.
- Morning.
- Morning.
- Hope you like scrambled.
- Wow.
I can't remember the last time
when someone made me breakfast.
Breakfast is the most important
meal of the day.
What is that foreign scent
wafting from our kitchen?
- That's very funny.
- 'Hey, baby. Here you go.'
Made your favorite.
two eggs over easy, extra runny.
- Thank you.
- 'You're welcome.'
- Looks delicious.
- 'Oh, thank you.'
Hailey, honey,
how do you like your eggs?
- Over medium, please.
- 'Over medium, please.'
- 'Carter, how about you?'
- Also over medium.
- Great.
- Okay, I place my vote now.
Alexis stays for as long
as she likes.
'Alright, I second that.'
- 'Come on, mom.'
- 'Yeah, both of you.'
'Get in here.'
'Including my hand right there.'
- 'Here it comes.'
- 'Okay.'
- I love it.
- Cool.
- Yeah.
- Thanks.
[phone ringing]
I totally forgot.
Uh, one second, please.
They're installing a pool filter
at the house
and need somebody to
open up the back gate.
- 'Can you handle that for me?'
- Yeah.
- Thank you.
- 'Absolutely.'
Hi, I'm-I'm sorry.
Um, no need to reschedule.
My assistant is on her way.
Thank you so much.
Okay, and I can stay here
for the last delivery.
- 'Supposed to be here at 7:00.'
- And that's everything, right?
'I need to call the gardeners
and confirm them'
make sure they'll be here
to plant them in the morning.
That's everything. Okay.
(Alexis) 'Okay. great.
I'll see you later.'
- Okay.
- Thank you for everything.
[instrumental music]
[dramatic music]
[phone ringing]
Oh, shoot.
How'd that happen?
[music continues]
'Get away from me!'
[honking horn]
[indistinct yelling]
[engine revving]
Your mom is killing it.
- She's such a pro.
- Yeah, she is.
You know, she's got a lot of
good things to say about you.
She says
you're doing really well.
- That's so nice. Hey!
- Hi!
Honey, why didn't you answer
your phone?
I must've left it in the car.
I was just chased by a man
in the parking lot.
Are you okay?
Should we call the police?
- No, I-I'm fine. I'm fine.
- Did you see who it was?
No, it was, uh, it was dark,
and it happened fast.
Are you sure you don't want me
to call the police?
Yeah. I'm fine.
It just, it freaked me out.
Well, you've also been
really stressed out
with the opening coming up.
Maybe just chill.
Take a bath.
Uh, also we made you a plate.
Oh, yeah.
(Brooke) That's very sweet of you guys.
Thank you.
Uh, I think I do need to, um,
A hot bath would do you wonders.
- Thanks, guys. I love you.
- 'I love you.'
I'll check on you
in a few minutes, okay?
[dramatic music]
(John) 'Hello, Brooke,
it's John Beckham.'
'We need to talk about Alexis.'
'Can we meet in person?'
'Please call me back.'
- I want that one.
- 'That one..'
[dramatic music]
I'm really glad that you
made it.
I mean, I may not be able to
do much right now
but I would have to be dead
to miss this.
[sighs] This is as much
your day as it is mine.
- Come here.
- Hmm.
I don't know what I would do
without you.
- Or you.
- Hey!
- Hey.
- 'Viv, this is Alexis.'
She's actually been filling in
for you.
- Oh!
- Well, you know, trying to.
But from what I hear,
that's absolutely impossible.
Oh. Well, you're too kind.
[Viv chuckles]
[dramatic music]
- Hey.
- Hi.
[indistinct chatter]
(Brooke) 'Thank you all for coming
to our official grand opening.'
'For a very long time,
our community'
'had a feel need
to find support in itself.'
'A positive place to come
and interact'
'swim, relax, to come together.'
And that is why we feel the time
for this center is now..
For today and for many tomorrows
to come.
- 'Whoo!'
- Whoo!
Ah, and just, um,
one last thing.
I couldn't have done any of this
without my assistant
and best friend Vivian.
Thank you.
And, um, a special thanks to
my new friend, Alexis Stern
who stepped in
when I needed her most.
'Thank you, Alexis.'
Like I said, this has been
a team effort the whole way.
Now where did I put those
giant scissors?
[Brooke chuckles]
would you please do the honors?
And Hillside Park is officially
your park.
- Yeah!
- Whoo-oo-oo!
Okay, so what's the big news?
Actually, uh, the development
team for Hotel Vista
'approached me today about
designing an outdoor workspace.'
- That's..
- Congratulations!
You're killing it. Okay,
so now would be a good time
for you to take that
quick getaway
before you dive into
your next project.
- A getaway. What, you and me?
- 'Yeah.'
- Is that even a possibility?
- Oh, that would be nice.
'As your temp assistant'
I went ahead and did
the prelim work on this..
And voila!
'Look at that. It's an Airbnb
not too far from here.'
I would absolutely hold
the fort down while you're gone.
- I love it. What do you think?
- 'Right?'
I think we need a vacation.
- 'It's really beautiful.'
- 'That is pretty.'
- I want to go..
- No, no, no, no, no.
Adults only on this vacation.
No kids allowed.
- 'Cheers to that.'
- Well, it has three bedrooms.
- So, we could share.
- 'Yeah. Yeah.'
'I had the car upfront.'
Yeah, but you have to stay
and give me..
No, no, no. No, no, no.
It's definitely official.
We are leaving tomorrow
for two nights.
- Thank you for the suggestion.
- Oh, good. I'm glad.
- No problem.
- You're okay with the girls?
Yes. Absolutely.
It'll be totally fine.
- Mom..
- Trust me.
What time are you guys
leaving tomorrow?
[dramatic music]
Probably early.
But don't worry, you guys,
it's just for two nights, so..
You know what, we didn't get
enough pictures at dinner.
Everybody, line up over there.
No, it's so beautiful right now.
This is your night. Come on.
You're gonna make bright
and gorgeous, right?
Okay, everybody,
over by the pool.
- 'Come on. Come on.'
- 'Okay. Okay. Yeah. Thank you.'
You can never have
too many pics.
- 'You should get in here.'
- 'Well, thank you.'
Well, tonight's your night,
so, right now.
'Well, that's very kind of you.'
- 'Okay. Alright.'
- 'Alright. Everybody..'
[indistinct chatter]
'Message not received?'
'Yeah. Yeah. Alright.'
(Brooke) 'That's great.
Are we all ready?'
- 'I'm ready.'
- Excellent.
[indistinct chatter]
- Uh-huh.
- 'Cheese.'
- Cheese.
- Yeah, we're pretty lucky.
I loved them.
[instrumental music]
- Put it right over there.
- Ah! Ah!
- 'Switch it. Do it. Switch it.'
- 'Oh!'
- 'Got it.'
- 'Ah!'
Put it down, and then up.
Why is this a thing?
[indistinct chatter]
[Carter sighs]
- Wow.
- Oh, my Goodness.
Not bad.
It's more magical
than the photos.
I think so.
- Well..
- Yeah.
Maybe we extend this trip
and stay an extra night.
- Maybe.
- Maybe.
Do you hear that?
- What?
- Quiet.
Peacefulness. Nature.
[both chuckle]
You realize I can lose my mind.
- I'm counting on it.
- Really?
Let's check it out.
Okay, what's the code?
Bap, bap. There we go.
- Nice. Wow! Memorized.
- After you, madame.
Oh, it-it's so cute in here.
So I was thinking we could
start with a long hike
and a picnic at the top of the
mountain and catch the sunset?
- Hm.
- What do you say?
I say, that sounds perfect,
there's just one thing
that I need to do.
No, absolutely not, we agreed
no work.
Well, this will be a, um
indoor physical activity.
Oh. I'm in.
- Hey.
- Hi.
Here you go, made your favorite.
- Oh!
- For you too.
- BLT, but no T.
- Ooh. Perfect. Thank you.
So, any plans today?
- Um, just chillin'.
- 'Chillin'?'
What, are you guys like, 90?
It's Saturday.
When I was your age,
the last thing I wanted to do
on a Saturday was be home.
Hm, we could go see that new
romcom that just came out.
OMG, that's supposed to be
like crazy funny.
OMG? Really?
No, it's supposed to be
- I agree.
- You guys should go.
- Definitely. Go.
- Yeah, let's go.
Okay, I guess I'll check
show times.
- Okay, love you, guys.
- Thank you.
- Love you.
- Bye.
[dramatic music]
Life is so much less stressful
when we're off the grid.
Give me a break, I know you're
dying to check-in.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I miss the girls.
Okay, what do you say
we do one last check-in,
then phones off
so we can be totally
present together.
You're amazing,
and that's a deal.
Thank you.
Meet me in the Jacuzzi
for mimosas.
Hm, yes, sir.
That's my girl.
[phone chiming]
- Hi, mom.
- Hey, you guys having fun?
Oh, my... 100%, yeah,
I, like..
Five hours has already
gone by since we saw you
and, you know, I have expected
to get some texts from you two
but, you know, apparently you're
carrying along without us.
Um, isn't this supposed to be
your time to focus on yourself?
- Come on, mom.
- That is true.
And we are, we are.
What are you guys up to?
Uh, about to head to the movies.
Oh. With boys?
With Alexis, mom.
Oh. Okay.
Great, so everything is..
...goin' good there.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, all good.
Okay, now is the time that we
say goodbye until the morning
and you guys enjoy
your alone time.
Right, goodbye.
- I love you guys.
- Love you too.
- Bye.
- Bye.
- Movie time.
- Movie time.
- And extra large popcorn.
- And add a large...
- An extra large.
- Okay.
- Like, so much of popcorn.
- So much popcorn.
- Hey.
- Mom, you okay?
I don't know, I mean..
It's-it's either something I ate
or I'm coming down
with something, but..
Is there anything
we can do for you?
I don't..
Maybe we should just cancel
the movie.
What? No, no, no,
no, no, no, no.
I'm not ruining your
Saturday night, you guys go.
Are you sure? I mean,
what if you need something?
I'll be fine, some antacids
and some bad reality TV,
totally fine.
- Mom, I feel bad.
- Don't. Don't.
I want you guys to enjoy
yourself, please, go. Go.
Okay, well, text us
if you need anything. Okay?
We can be home in 20 minutes.
That is so sweet of you,
thank you.
But I'm a big girl,
I can handle myself.
- So, go, please, I insist.
- Okay.
- Okay, feel better.
- 'Thanks.'
- Bye.
- 'Bye.'
- Come, darling.
- Ooh!
[instrumental music]
'Mom, you up here?'
'I forgot, I need to borrow
cash for the movie.'
- What are you doing with that?
- It was Nick's.
- I-I just feel safer with it.
- Are you kidding me?
You're gonna get us both
kicked out of here.
- You need to get rid of that.
- I'm so sorry.
You're right, I-I-I should never
have brought it here.
I'll get rid of it,
first thing in the morning.
I promise, I promise.
You are ruining everything.
How are the girls?
They are wonderful.
They're great,
they're gonna go to the movies.
- 'And your phone?'
- It's inside.
Far away.
Good. Check it out.
Do you think we trusted
Alexis too much?
- Here we go again.
- No, I'm being serious.
She lied, she lied for..
...16 years.
To protect Breanne.
Do you think that maybe
the living trust
was a mistake?
I mean, I know we felt like it
was the right decision
at the time on
top of my feeling responsible
for everything
that happened to her
but we just don't know her,
you know
we don't like really know her.
Honey, please. You're obsessed.
...can we just please be here?
With me.
And just relax.
It feels so good.
- It does feel good.
- Yeah.
You are too quiet.
Feelin' every day
knowin' have you..
- So.
- 'So..'
- Are you excited about prom?
- I am.
- 'Like beyond excited?'
- Yeah, like beyond excited.
I have my dress picked out,
I know how I'm doing my hair.
'Do you know what
you're wearing yet?'
Honestly, I'll probably just
figure it out last minute.
That's how I do everything.
What is that guy doing?
- 'I don't know.'
- 'What does he want?'
I have no idea. Is he drunk?
He's definitely following us.
We're closer to the house now,
I'm not gonna let this guy
follow us to the movies,
we should go back.
- Let's just get home.
- Okay.
[intense music]
'I think we lost him.'
- 'Are you sure?'
- Yeah.
[phone ringing]
- That's weird.
- What?
- Nothing, let's just get home.
- Okay.
(Breanne) Why was that guy following us?
That was really, really scary.
I know, I-I have no idea.
(Breanne) Okay,
let's-let's just get inside.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
- Ooh!
- Oh, my God.
- That was crazy.
- Are you okay?
- Yeah.
Hold my hand
just for a little while.
- You're good, right? Okay.
- Yeah.
Okay, wait, wait, wait,
wait, hold on.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
Lock the door, lock the door.
Lock the door.
I got the door locked, okay,
My name is John Beckham,
I'm Hailey's father.
- What?
- I just need to talk to you.
I'm not trying to scare you.
I'm here to save you.
- What?
- From Alexis.
She's a very dangerous woman.
Please, I just need
a little bit of your time.
'I just wanna talk.
Just give me five seconds.'
'Open the window,
I'll explain everything.'
Um... okay, open the window.
- What? Are you sure?
- Just do it. Just do it.
Thank you. Look, I know
this sounds crazy.
But 16 years ago
she tried to kill me.
She tried to kill you?
- What? My mother?
- Yes.
I almost died,
she ran me over with her car.
Because I wanted her
to get an abortion.
We were so young,
she was barely 18
I was 19, it seemed like
the only option.
So you're my dad.
Yeah. I'm your dad.
Okay, guys, this is crazy.
My mother or your mother,
I don't even know anymore
she's inside right now, I mean..
- She's here right now?
- Yeah, let's go talk to her.
Wait, where's her car?
Let's check this out.
Stay behind me.
[intense music]
- Alexis.
- Mom.
Uh, I, I need
to go check something.
- I'll be right back.
- Where are you going?
It's okay, I don't think
she's here anyway.
(Breanne) Mom, where are you going?
Oh, God.
Please, please, please,
please don't be going
where I think you're going.
Oh, no! What are you doing?
- I'm gonna go check.
- Yeah. That's good.
- Okay, okay, we gotta go.
- What's happening?
- We gotta go.
- What happening?
I'm pretty sure my mom's
going to the cottage.
- It's gone. The gun.
- What is?
It's gone. Nick's gun.
Nick's gun is gone.
It was in this house?
In our house?
He-ey, hey, guys, guys,
can we just shelve this?
- Where is she?
- She's going to the cottage.
I know it. We have to get there
before she does.
- I'll drive.
- I've the address in my phone.
[intense music]
- Now I hear it.
- What?
I know, right?
Well, we're empty.
I should get us another bottle.
Are you trying
to take advantage of me?
I lived with this woman
for my entire life.
How can I not know
what a monster she is?
It's not your fault,
it's not your fault.
I'm sorry.
[intense music]
- Was that the front door?
- I don't think so.
But you know, in these parts
it might be a bear or something.
Well, would you be my hero
and go check it out?
You bet I will.
- Be brave.
- Yes, ma'am.
- Don't you go anywhere.
- Mm-mm.
Big bad bear comin' to get ya.
(John) 'I'm tellin'
you it was no accident'
'I saw the whole thing.'
She dragged him down the stairs
'snapped his neck
with her bare hands.'
Why didn't you call the police?
I didn't have any evidence.
How was I supposed to explain
why I was there?
Carter! Answer me, Carter!
Oh, my God!
[intense music]
I was a good mother, Brooke.
And you took that from me.
We took you into our home,
I gave you...
- That is not enough!
- Please.
When those girls look at you,
they see mom.
- Me, liar!
- No, they love you!
'Try calling them.'
(Breanne) 'I can't believe
this is happening.'
(automated message) 'You've
reached the voice mail of..'
Why would she do this?
Let me just, let me just
call for some help.
Oh, my God.
Everything is gonna be fine.
Everything is gonna be
back to normal again
as soon as you and your
picture perfect hubby are dead.
And you know what?
- He's not far off.
- Think of the girls. Alright?
I will take care of them.
I will be there for them.
When they discover that you
and him have been murdered
in a random but very violent
robbery homicide.
Alexis, your daughter chooses
to come stay with us.
The living trust,
it grants you everything.
You have the motive here,
think about it.
I have thought about it.
What are you talking about?
Please, just answer the phone,
(automated message)
You've reached the voice..
Both of their phones
are still off.
- I never signed it.
- What?
I knew you'd assume
that I would sign it.
I mean, it's such a sweet deal,
I'd be an idiot not to, right?
But you never even opened
the envelope, did you?
That's what I thought.
So then when the police
discover this document
signed by you and that guy
that gives this girl everything
they're gonna say, "Ms. Stern,
were you aware that the Jenkins
"entrusted their entire home,
their two beautiful children
and the majority of their
savings to you?"
And I'll say,
"What? I had no idea!"
(woman on phone)
'911, what's you emergency?'
(John) 'We believe
there's someone armed'
'and dangerous
at 1023 Fallbrook Lane!'
[intense music]
(Alexis) 'And then me,
my two beautiful daughters'
will live
in your beautiful house
spending your beautiful money
until death do us part.
Well, you're just forgetting
one thing.
What is that?
I will do anything
for my daughters.
[intense music]
- Alexis, put it down!
- John!
What are you..
Oh, no, girls.
I-I'm sorry,
I can explain everything, okay?
It's all her fault!
Police! Freeze!
Stay down! Don't move.
- Cuff her.
- Stay right there, don't move.
No! Honey, I was a good mom
to you, sweetie.
Right? Tell them.
I would've been a good mom
to you too..
Let me at her!
I will always be your mother.
I'm fine.
[breathes deeply]
- Ready?
- Ready.
Let's do this.
[indistinct chatter]
- Wow!
- Look at you two.
- Look at you.
- Whoo!
You look beautiful.
Oh, you look amazing,
I don't wanna mess you up.
- My gosh.
- I gotta hug ya.
- Are we taking a picture?
- Okay, okay, right.
- Aw, you're beautiful.
- I love it.
Now say the ultimate
modern family.
The ultimate modern family.
Okay, now, just the girls,
just the girls.
- Okay.
- Ready?
'You need to get the shoes in.'
Oh. Cheese.
- Swisters.
- Swisters.
Hey, girls, ready to go?
Don't wanna miss the fun.
- You look beautiful, Hailey.
- Thank you.
You look very handsome.
Okay, boys, you know the deal.
Home by 10:00.
- That's funny, dad.
- Okay. Okay.
- 10:30 it is.
- Oh, wow.
- That's even funnier, dad.
- Have them back by midnight.
- Deal?
- Deal.
Feel free to send pics
along the evening.
- And have a great time.
- Thanks, mom.
- Bye, love you.
- Bye.
Hey, Bobby.
Ooh to be older than..

Our date, alone at last!
