I just want to understand.
Because we had a deal.
That loving couple is ready to
take the baby off our hands,
And pay handsomely for it,
But you...
You just run away.
[suspenseful music]
[leaves crunching]
The hell did you go?
Doing this for both of us!
[distant leaves crunching]
Come on.
Just come on.
Where are you?
[leaves crunching]
- [claire grunts]
- [justin groans]
- [claire groans]
- [justin grunts]
What are you doing?
I changed my mind.
I want to raise my son,
And that's exactly
what I plan to do.
- It's a boy?
- [claire panting]
You didn't tell me it was a boy.
[claire] yeah.
It's a boy.

[somber music]
[crickets chirping]
[somber music]
This still isn't right?
Rach, what is it, huh?
It's just...
At the 10 year, it was
all about marriage,
And we were right
there with them.
But now this is the 15, and
it's gonna be all about kids.
I just, I don't want to
spend the whole night
Explaining why I don't
have my own kids.
Well, we don't have to go.
We can stay here,
eat ice cream and
Try again?
[both laughing]
I'll be okay.
[gentle music]
I know you're looking
forward to this.
I'm so looking forward to this.
I know.
[gentle music]
Oh my gosh, has it been
since graduation? [chuckles]
Yes, claire mathers.
You look great.
I can't believe it's
been this long either.
It feels like just yesterday.
Of course, I remember
that party. [chuckles]
I never forgot it.
[upbeat soft rock music]
Ah, this looks great.
- Hey, rachel!
- Hey.
Find name tags?
All right.
[upbeat soft rock
music continues]
- Here's yours.
- Perfect.
- Thank you.
- Just hold on to that.
So, you want it on your dress?
- No.
- No.
[soft chattering]
All right.
Well, who should
we talk to first?
Good question. Uh...
Let's see, what about...
Billy boy!
Whoa, whoa, whoa,
all right, all right.
Oh, how I've missed you!
What has it been, like a month?
Ish, ish.
Hey, rach.
Hey, kurt.
You keeping my friend
out of trouble?
Well, I'm keeping
him away from you, so...
Smart girl, smart girl.
So, drinks?
Yeah, what do you want?
Maybe in a little bit.
- You sure?
- Yeah.
All right.
He's allowed to go though, yeah?
Great, wait here for us, okay?
- Okay.
- Alright.
Oh my god.
When's the due date?
Six weeks.
Uh, do we know the gender?
Yeah, it's a little fella.
Oh, how sweet.
Are you here alone?
It's a long story.
[men laughing]
All right.
Doubled up.
Um, is that bill o'donnell?
[drinks clinking]
We're married.
You knew that, right?
Oh wow, no, actually,
I had no idea.
I didn't realize you guys
were a thing in high school.
Oh no, no, we weren't.
We got together
after graduation.
Yeah, we've been
married eight years now.
Wow, that's wonderful.
All the juicy gossip
that I missed out on
By not coming to the 10 year.
Well, if it isn't
claire mathers.
Hey, bill.
- You.
- Yeah, I.
It's a boy. [laughs]
- That is awesome.
- Yeah.
God, I haven't seen you since...
Yeah, I moved away with
my parents right after.
The titan factory closed
down, but they stuck around
So that I could
graduate with my class.
I never intended to
be away for so long.
You look great, you both do.
What about me?
- Hey, kurt.
- Hi!
- Let's find a seat.
- Yeah.
Yeah, let's grab a table.
[upbeat soft rock music]
[claire] so what
do you do, rachel?
Non-profit, animal rescue.
We find animals who were
in abusive situations,
And we put them in sanctuaries.
- Wow.
- What about you?
Oh, right now I just have
one job I'm focused on.
It's this little guy.
Hey, is baby daddy here?
Dude, like...
He was unable to make it.
In fact, he's no
longer here, so.
Wait, you mean like here, here?
Like not on this planet
anymore here, here?
[upbeat soft rock music]
I'm so sorry.
How was I supposed to know that?
What about you guys,
do you have any kids?
Oh, I'm sorry, did
I say something?
No, no, we've just
had a bit of bad luck.
Or, you could
consider it good luck
Because kids are well
known to be money pits.
Oh my god, kurt.
I'm sure it will happen for you.
Um, could you excuse me?
[soft rock music]
[bill sighs]
[kurt] I need another one.
[bill] yeah, get me one too.
It'll be a double for you, okay?
No, just give me one
because otherwise my wife
Will kill me.
[sighs] oh.
[bill clears throat]
You know, while I was
getting ready tonight,
I was thinking
about high school.
Do you remember clint's
graduation party?
Clint's graduation party...
Uh, vaguely?
I never forgot it.
Right, oh, well, I've got
to go say hi to someone.
So, I'll be back, and
we'll talk later, okay?
[music playing]
[soft crying]
[door creaking]
Is everything all right?
Yeah, yeah.
Well, can I get you anything?
A new uterus?
I'm sorry.
I'm not, I'm not
usually like this.
It's just.
It's been a rough
couple of years.
I miscarried a few times.
I'm sorry.
I'm probably the last person you
Want to be talking to right now.
No, no.
It's fine.
It's just...
I know how badly
bill wants children,
And I know he'll always
feel like he's missing out.
Well, can I say this?
Miracles happen.
And I am sure it is
going to happen for you.
And bill is going to
get to be a father.
[upbeat dance music]
uh huh
all right
[people laughing]
oh yeah
[people chattering]
[people laughing]
[gentle music]
[claire laughing]
[lips smacking]
[gentle guitar music]
all that I want
all that I see
all that I need
[claire] it was really
great to see you guys.
Yeah, I mean, well
you have our numbers.
So, please just give us a call.
Um, did you valet?
I ubered.
We can give you a ride home?
Are you sure you don't mind?
No, not at all.
You, you will not be driving.
That's a good choice.
Smart choice.
- That's why I married her.
- This way, yup.
[rachel] oh, is this
where you're staying?
[claire] yeah, I remembered it
being nicer back in the day.
I really should have looked
At the online reviews
before booking.
I mean, you could have canceled
and found someplace else.
It's all right, it's
only for one night.
Okay, if you say so.
Thank you for the ride.
- Bye.
- [car door thudding]
[footsteps receding]
Do you think we should have
invited her to stay with us?
I mean, she's pregnant.
You heard her.
It's not that bad.
And it's just one night.
[door shutting]
[suspenseful music]
[blinds clattering]
[suspenseful music]
[blinds clattering]
You love me, bill.
How can you not see this?
You were supposed
to take me with you!
[man] hey, shut up in there!
You shut up!
[suspenseful music]
[suspenseful music]
[mysterious music]
[can rattles]
- [head thuds]
- [claire grunts]
[claire groans]
[crickets chirping]
[ringtone chiming]
[phone clicking]
[nurse on phone] this is
valley mercy.
Do you know claire mathers?
No, I know claire mathers.
She's been in an accident.
- Wait, what?
- She's asking for you.
Yeah, we'll be right there.
- Thank you.
- Okay.
[phone beeping]
Bill, wake up.
Claire's in the hospital.
Claire, I am so sorry.
We should never have let
you stay at that hotel.
No, it's okay, I'm okay.
And the baby?
They said he's fine.
They just said my head
slammed into a wall.
I don't know what
they were after.
I didn't have anything valuable.
You know, no cash or jewelry.
And all my credit
cards are maxed out.
You're staying with us tonight.
No, you don't have to do that.
[bill] nope, it's
not up for debate.
You're coming with us.
[gentle music]
Thank you.
[car approaching]
[claire sighs]
[bill] oh, oh god, are you okay?
Yeah, no,
I'm just a little lightheaded
from the concussion.
Yeah, the doctor said
that was to be expected.
Wow, this is so nice.
Oh, thanks.
Well, rachel did all
the decorating, not me.
Well, I'm gonna go
get the room ready.
- Yeah, yeah.
- Thank you.
- You okay?
- Yeah.
You've always been
such a good guy, bill.
- Oh.
- I'm so glad
That hasn't changed. [laughs]
Did you have fun tonight?
Oh, yeah, I did, yeah.
A little too much fun.
How about you?
I mean, besides the, uh...
Uh, it was head-swirling,
pun intended.
[bill laughs]
No, it was great.
It brought up a lot
of good memories.
You know, like clint's party.
Oh, right, you
said that earlier.
Oh, I did?
I guess I got knocked harder
than I thought. [laughs]
You know, that was my first
real high school party.
Well, no wonder, you always
had your priorities in order.
Well, that's what I thought.
But looking back, I think
I spent too much time
Waiting and hoping
that I never actually
Went after what I
really wanted, you know?
Yeah, well, I'm sure you want
to get upstairs and rest,
So let's get you up there, okay?
All right.
[mysterious music]
- Watch your step.
- Okay.
- Got it?
- Yeah.
Right this way, watch your step.
Okay, here it is.
Wow, this is great.
Oh, let me grab you
something to sleep in.
Oh, well.
Oh, right.
You know what, I've got some
sweats in the laundry room.
[claire] okay.
You should be comfortable here.
It's a cozy room.
All right, this ought to do it.
There you go.
If you need anything,
just let us know.
Otherwise, I'll see
you in the morning.
Thanks, bill.
[bill] feel better.
Yeah, so you should
be all good here and um...
I'm really glad you're okay.
Thank you.
Okay, good night.
Good night.
[mysterious music]
[sniffing deeply]
[dramatic music]
- [suspenseful music]
- [birds chirping]
[suspenseful music]
[butcher knife clanging]
[distant rattling]
What was that?
Our house guest must be
an early riser. [sighs]
Come on.
[hand patting]
Do I have to?
What's all this?
It's breakfast, silly.
Yeah, but you didn't, you
didn't have to do this.
Of course I did.
Please, sit.
Oh my god, are these
chocolate chip pancakes?
They're my favorite.
Well, I just looked around
to see what you had.
I guess I got lucky.
Oh, uh.
And for you.
Thank you.
Oh my god, these are amazing.
I'm happy to hear it.
So, what are your plans now?
Um, I guess I'll go home
And just try to
figure things out.
Did the father
leave you anything
Or does he have any family?
Actually, we met at
a griever's group.
He lost his family too.
So no, he left me nothing,
and my parents are gone,
And they left me nothing.
Actually, I.
I've been thinking about it and
I'm going to give
him up for adoption.
[solemn music]
Oh wow.
I have enough savings to
carry me through to term.
But, I mean, after that,
How am I going to find a job
while caring for a newborn?
All I know is that I have
to do what is best for him.
Even if that breaks my heart.
But enough of that.
Okay, we are sharing a meal,
So let's focus on what we do
have and not on what we don't.
[water splashing]
I'll help.
Oh, thanks.
Where's claire?
I have to take her
back to the hotel
And get her car and stuff.
She is lying down in
the guest bedroom.
What do you think about
her whole adoption thing?
Well, given her circumstances,
I think it's the right choice.
Yeah, well, I guess what
I mean is, what about us?
What if we adopt her baby?
I know it sounds
crazy, but I just,
I feel like it's a gift that's
been dropped on our doorstep.
Like fate.
Bill, I don't...
We've always wanted
a boy, right?
And there he is.
I thought you wanted
children of our own.
I do, honey, I do,
But it just seems
unrealistic for us right now.
And I still want to be a dad.
You still want to
be a mom, right?
Yeah, of course, of
course, it's just...
I mean, how would all this work?
I don't know.
We'll figure it out.
She could stay in
the guest room.
She'd have plenty
of privacy up there.
And it's only for
a couple of months.
Would you at least be willing
to talk to her about it?
[solemn music]
- [hand knocking]
- claire?
Come in.
Rachel and I...
We have something we'd
like to discuss with you.
[mysterious music]
[crickets chirping]
[bill exhales]
What, do I have something
on my face that?
No, no.
It's just, it's funny how life
Turns out sometimes, isn't it?
How do you mean?
Well, you and me...
And rachel, all living under
the same roof as roomies.
Well, temporary roomies.
Yeah, I guess so.
What is this?
We're celebrating.
Apple juice for
you and champagne.
It's been a week so
I thought we could
Make a toast to
claire moving in.
And the lawyers approved
all the paperwork,
And everything looks good.
And now we just need
To pass the home
inspection and interview.
Well, don't you think it's
a little bit premature
To be celebrating?
Everything needs to be perfect.
I think the house needs
a little sprucing up.
And when are you gonna
find time to do that?
Tomorrow, before
our appointment.
I have time.
I trust you.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
[glasses clinking]
[glasses clinking]
[suspenseful music]
[dog barking]
[door creaking]
[suspenseful music]
[hammer banging]
[suspenseful music]
[door latch clicking]
[heels clacking]
Oh hey, heading out?
Yeah, just gonna go
run some errands.
Oh, okay, well call
if you need anything.
[heels clacking]
[suspenseful music]
[dramatic music]
You've gotta be kidding me.
[suspenseful music]
Oh crap!
[bill sighs]
I mean, where the hell is she?
She said she'll be back.
I mean, she promised.
She's not the type of person
to break a promise, is she?
No, but the adoption lady
will be here any minute.
Okay, you need to relax
Because you cannot be
stressed out for this.
Okay, look here,
breathe with me.
[bill inhales]
[bill exhales]
Good, in.
[bill inhales]
[doorbell rings]
Ah, damn it, that's her.
Hey, me and you, we got this.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- All right.
- Yeah.
- Good morning.
- Hello.
I'm bill o'donnell, and
this is claire mathers.
How do you do?
I'm harriet.
Oh, come in, come in, come in.
[door shutting]
Um, where's your wife?
Where's rachel?
She's, uh...
She's not here.
She said to get started
and to apologize,
But she had a work emergency.
You know, she's out there
saving one abused animal
At a time, right?
- Right.
- Yeah.
Can I get you
something to drink?
A coffee would be great.
Of course.
[suspenseful music]
Thank you!
[rachel panting]
Here's the mother
to be right now.
Hey, I am so sorry.
I had this...
Did you get the savannah
zoo to accept that lynx?
You know, the work
emergency that you had?
It took a little
bit of convincing,
But they decided to take it in.
- That's great.
- Yeah.
Anyways, I'm here now.
So, what did I miss?
[woman sighs]
Again, I'm so sorry
about earlier.
You know, things,
they just happen.
And if you need to reach
me about anything, call me.
- Anytime.
- Okay.
Well, I just have to
finish up my report.
And we'll let you
know the outcome
In a couple of days, okay?
- Bye.
- Okay, thank you.
[bill sighs]
Well, that went
well, considering.
You knew how important this was.
What happened?
I was saving an endangered lynx.
That's not funny.
Um, I'll just, I'll
be in my room, okay?
Bill, I had enough time
to get everything done.
I didn't know I was
gonna get a flat tire.
And then when I realized I
didn't have my phone, I just...
Rach, we had one job today.
To show harriet we can
be responsible parents.
And we're lucky she
bought that lie.
She checks up on
us, we're screwed.
I can cover.
What, with more lies?
Wait, where do you
think you're going?
The car, the flat tire?
You know, we're lucky
that claire was here.
If she hadn't have been,
this whole thing would have
Been over before
it even started.
[suspenseful music]
[papers rustling]
I thought you could use a
little mid-morning pick me up.
- [bill] oh, thanks.
- [pensive music]
I've been working on my lattes,
Since I'm gonna need
to find some work soon,
After the baby comes.
Is everything all right?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, fine.
Hey rach, you got a sec?
What's up?
We got the home study, 25 pages.
You know, we're gonna
need extra help.
We're both so busy,
And I don't want you
to getting overwhelmed.
Oh, please lean on me.
Oh no, you already do so much.
Yeah, and the only
thing you need to be
Concentrating on
is this little guy.
Might be time for
all hands on deck.
What do you mean by that?
Well, once the baby's here,
She'll want to be around
as much as possible.
Might as well welcome her now.
Who is he talking about?
[doorbell ringing]
- Mom.
- Oh, hello sweetheart!
[lips smacking]
Oh, look at that handsome face.
- Alice.
- Rachel.
Hope your flight was good.
Good as it can be these days.
At least it was only 40 minutes.
Hello, mrs. O'donnell.
And you must be the
pregnant classmate
Who's led to this
unique situation.
You know, most people
just call it adoption.
Oh, most people don't have
the woman living with them.
Even if she is an old friend.
That... I would call unique.
What'd you say your
last name was again?
Joe and donna,
were your parents?
Well, I remember them.
Good people.
- Huh.
- Mom, come on.
Let's get you settled in.
Where are you going with that?
The guest house.
Claire's living in
the spare bedroom.
You mean, my room?
Yeah, well, claire's
already settled in,
And it's getting colder
so we don't want her
Having to go in and out so much.
Ah, but the cold wind and rain
Is fine for your old mother.
Mom, you'll be fine.
You look great, by the way.
[sighs] quit pandering.
Just show me to the
servants' quarters. [sighs]
Lovely, isn't she?
[birds chirping]
[gentle music]
- [sniffing]
- ugh.
And this, here.
That's nice.
Can I help?
I don't think so.
[ominous music]
You know, mrs. O'donnell, I
wish this wasn't happening.
Meaning, I wish that rachel
could have a child of her own
And that I wasn't needed,
And she could
experience all of this.
Well, pregnancy is no picnic.
Bill was a tough baby.
But it makes it all
the sweeter, you know?
But I just hate that
it's not just rachel
That's missing out,
it's also you and bill.
Yeah, well with the situation
being so unique and rushed,
You're missing out
on some of the perks,
Like having a baby shower or
the sonogram appointments.
Well, why should we miss out?
Oh, well, if you want to come
To my next sonogram
Oh god, no, I mean
the baby shower.
Well, I wasn't suggesting that...
I know, that's why I'm
gonna take all the credit.
Oh, I adore you.
Bill, rachel, a moment please!
Mom, what is it?
I've just been inspired.
I'm gonna throw
you a baby shower.
No, you don't have to do that.
Yeah, there's no time
to plan a baby shower.
Well, of course there is.
And if they're your friends,
They're gonna show up no
matter how late the invite is.
Let's just wait till
the baby gets here
And then we can have a party.
Oh, when we're up to our
elbows in poopy diapers
And spit up bibs?
No, there's a reason they do
this before the baby arrives.
Is there any way we're gonna
change your mind about this?
[alice laughs]
That's cute.
Claire, come with
me, sweetheart.
Outside, you won't believe
how bad her taste is.
She put grape...
That is your mother.
[mellow music
playing on speakers]
[alice sighs]
[mellow music continues]
[teeth crunching]
[alice groans]
[alice gags]
[alice sighs deeply]
Where'd you get this
dip, a gas station?
I made that.
Oh. [laughs]
Oh dear lord, did you do this?
Do what?
Points need to face down.
I mean, I told you this
time and time again.
[rachel] you've
never told me that.
[alice] you just
haven't been listening.
I said the same thing
last year at thanksgiving.
Somebody is gonna get hurt.
It's like you're just
asking for an accident.
And with a little one
running around here soon,
You just can't afford to be
this ignorant about things.
You know what, alice? [groans]
I'll do better next time.
[doorbell ringing]
Let's make ourselves
[footsteps pattering]
Hey, hey, you guys like great.
Okay, whew.
I cannot believe I'm
at a baby shower.
I hate equality.
You don't seem like
the type of person
That hates anything that
provides you with free beer.
Fair point.
I just hate that rachel
is missing her own party.
I saw her when we walked
in, where'd she go?
She's still in the kitchen.
I'm gonna go see if I
can help her actually.
All right, I'm
gonna watch the bar.
[woman] kurt, is that you?
How you doin'?
[rachel groans]
Careful, hon.
So, is everything going well?
No, alice is the one who
wanted this baby shower,
Yet I'm the one
doing all the work.
Okay, well what
can I do to help?
Can you put that platter out?
Yes, I can do that.
And you can relax, okay?
Smile, you're gonna be a mom.
[ominous music]
[gas hissing]
[suspenseful music]
All right, everyone, gather.
Come on, gather.
Now that rachel has finally
joined us, we can do gifts.
[whispers] was I supposed
to get them something?
I just wanted to say thank you.
Before we open gifts, we.
[fire alarm beeping]
[guests chattering]
- Is that, oh god!
- Wait, what is that?
[alice] now what?
[guests chattering]
[kurt] I smell smoke.
Oh shoot!
[people coughing]
Oh my god.
You could have killed us all.
This wasn't my fault.
[alice scoffs]
Care to reassess?
Mom, it was an accident, okay?
How do you expect to be a mother
When you're this irresponsible?
- Mom.
- Stay out of it!
I didn't want this
party, you did.
But you did nothing to help.
It was all, "rachel, do this.
"rachel, do that.
"this tastes like it's
from a gas station!"
Do you know what I
have had enough of?
- You.
- [bill] rach.
We would be better off in
our lives without you in it.
[guests gasping]
I'm sorry that I want
the best for my son,
Which I guess he'll
never get from you.
You bitch.
[guests gasping]
What did you just call me?
- Rachel.
- Mom.
Did you hear what
she just said to me?
Get back in here, young lady!
Mom, relax, okay?
Let it go, enough.
[guests chattering]
Did anyone else know the
baby showers were so awesome?
[man] why are we all still here?
Congrats, bill.
Thanks so much for coming.
Thanks for inviting us.
- I'll see you later.
- Bye.
Thank you.
- [door thuds]
- [lock clicks]
[bill sighs]
Hey, can I get you anything?
No, I'm good.
Oh no, I wish that I
helped rachel more.
I didn't realize that
all this stress would
Make her so irrational.
Yeah, I should,
I should go talk to her.
Of course.
[suspenseful music]
[doorbell ringing]
Oh, I got it.
I'm sure someone just
forgot something.
Thank you, claire.
[dramatic music]
Hello, claire.
Surprised to see me?
- [claire grunts]
- [claire groans]
Okay, please,
please don't, okay?
Not here, all right?
What kind of scam
are you running?
I'll explain later,
just not here.
Come on.
- [both grunting]
- [claire] ok!
[suspenseful music]
[engine starting]
[suspenseful music]
[alice sighing]
[suspenseful music]
How did you find me?
Faces and friends dot com.
I'm not on there, I haven't
been on there in months.
You should have
deactivated your account.
Someone at a party tagged you.
[screwdriver thudding]
You're carrying my child.
50% of whatever
you're milking out
Of those people is mine.
I'm not milking them for money.
Then I don't get it.
The nelsons are still willing
to pay for that child.
You got to tell me what
the hell is going on.
[sighs] I found another family.
They're loaded.
I've started a bidding war.
That family back
there and the new one.
And if we bring
the nelsons in too,
I bet we could get six
figures from somebody.
Okay, look, if this is
how we're going to do it,
Then we need to get
you somewhere
Where no one can see you.
And no one can see me with you.
[suspenseful music]
I know a place we
can go where we can
Work out all the details.
[suspenseful music]
Man, I'm getting goosebumps
Just thinking about
what we might get.
Should be a nice little
nest egg for me and my son.
What do you mean?
You don't really think I'm
gonna let him go, do you?
He's my blood.
He's staying with
me no matter what.
And if you help all this happen,
maybe I'll just forgive you
For what you did
in the graveyard.
Or maybe...
[suspenseful music]
You could just show
me how sorry you are,
Right... Now.

You know, I have a feeling
that things will get a lot
Better once we get through
with this whole adoption.
Maybe your mother's right?
I'm not cut out to be a mom.
[sighs] why do you
let her get to you?
You never have before.
Because I can't seem to
do anything right lately.
Hey, where have you been?
Oh, I just needed
to go for a walk.
Get some alone time.
What's going on?
Just trying to forget the
disaster that was today.
[claire chuckles]
You can't beat yourself up.
You're going to get some things
right, some things wrong.
All moms do.
That's what I've been saying.
Yeah, just takes practice.
In fact, maybe that's
what you should do.
You know, you have a few
weeks before the baby's here.
How do you mean?
You know, find a friend who
has a kid and watch them.
Get some real game
time experience.
You know, that's a great idea.
I've never really spent
time with samantha.
I'm sure lindsay would love it.
I'll give her a call.
Thanks, claire.
My pleasure.
Good night.
[suspenseful music]
[alice] hello, claire.
[gasps] oh, alice,
you scared me.
I came in from the front
because I'm not ready
To talk to my
daughter-in-law yet.
That man who was here
earlier sure was cute.
[ominous music]
What man?
The man whose
pickup you got into.
Oh, him, no, he's just a friend.
He didn't look like a friend.
Goodnight, alice.
[suspenseful music]
[samantha] this is a fly.
That's a fly, yeah?
They're friends, huh?
It's almost lunchtime.
Do you want to come
help me in the kitchen?
I want to watch princess.
You want to watch princess.
Okay, but just one
episode, all right?
Be right back.

All right, sweetie,
it is lunchtime.
Are you hiding?
I'm gonna find you.
Where are you?
[suspenseful music]
[whispers] oh my god.
- [suspenseful music]
- [rachel huffing]
[samantha giggling]
[suspenseful music]
What the?
What are you doing, baby?
Hey, mommy.
What are you doing out here?
Are you okay?
Are you okay?
[somber music]
Lindsay, I am so sorry.
I cannot find samantha.
I don't.
[dramatic music]
[lindsay] baby, stay here, okay?
I need to talk to auntie rachel.
- What happened?
- I don't know.
How could you lose
her like that?
I didn't lose her.
What were you doing,
she's four years old!
Anything could have
happened to her!
I know, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
We were playing, and then
suddenly the door was open.
You know I don't trust
anybody with her,
And I trusted you!
I'm sorry.
- I just need you to...
- Lindsay, I'm sorry.
I just need you to go!
Just please!
[rachel] I'm so sorry.
Hello, how can I help you today?
I'm looking for a guy.
He's got brown hair,
mid-thirties, drives a pickup.
Seen my parking lot?
It's nothing but pickups.
Yes, but he had one of
your bumper stickers,
Which is how I know
he's a member here.
It's silver with tinted windows.
You might be talking
about justin.
About 5'10, never
met a razor he liked?
[laughs] that fits.
Did he ever come in here
to shoot with a woman?
Like on a date?
You know, he always kind
of struck me as a loner.
He just came in for
target practice.
He wasn't really a
guy to get personal.
Mostly he just talked
about guns and trucks.
Thank you, sugar.
[crickets chirping]
[rachel] no, she
wouldn't listen.
She just kept screaming at me.
But you gotta to look
at it from her side.
Samantha could have
wandered in the street,
Been hit by a car or
taken by a stranger.
So, you're saying I deserve it.
No, I'm saying she
found her daughter
Wandering in a neighbor's
yard, and she flipped.
Any mother would have.
Just give her some
time to cool down.
God, how could I
have been so stupid?
And after the baby shower?
I don't know, rach.
Maybe we should take some
time to rethink some things.
Like what?
[sighs] all this.
Are you saying I'm not
cut out to be a mother?
[bill] no.
Is that what you're saying?
That you don't want to go
through with the adoption?
Would you keep your voice down?
No, I will not
keep my voice down.
This is my house still, and
I will yell if I want to!
And I can't talk to you
when you're like this.
[suspenseful music]
[phone beeping]
[phone beeping]
[phone recording] hey justin,
it's benny from the gun club.
How's it hanging?
Hey, reason I'm calling,
this woman, alice o'donnell.
She came in asking
around about you.
She wants to talk, and
she's got some questions,
So give me a buzz.
I'll talk to you later.
[suspenseful music]
[objects rattling]
[bill sighs]
Oh, are you all right?
Yeah, rachel's got a migraine.
Oh no, the poor thing.
They can be brutal.
Hey, I really hope
that she and your mom
Can hash things out.
You know, maybe if we
just give them some space.
You know what, that
is a great idea.
Do you have anything you could
do away from the house today?
Yeah, I'll make myself scarce.
And I've been meaning to try one
Of those pregnancy
yoga classes anyway.
Thanks, you're the best.
[lips smacking]
[mysterious music]
Here you go.
I know you're not feeling great,
But I think you'll
start feeling better
If you deal directly
with some of these issue.
Like what?
Well, to start, you
need to talk to mom.
Claire and I are
gonna leave the house,
So you guys will
have it for a bit.
You're both so important to me,
I need you to work this out.
I hope you're having the
same discussion with her.
I will.
I'm gonna do that right now.
Feel better, okay?
Oh, good, you're here.
We need to talk.
And I need to speak with you.
You go first.
Claire and I are
gonna be leaving.
Prenatal yoga class,
can't be late.
And I'm going to be
running some errands.
While I'm gone, take this
time to apologize to rachel.
- Me?
- Yes, you.
You need to stop purposefully
making her life miserable.
Because if you keep pushing,
And I have to choose
between you and her,
You're not gonna
like what I decide.
[sighs] where's rachel now?
She's upstairs, lying down.
You know what?
I have the perfect remedy.
I'll mix it up, take it to her,
And we'll have some
quality girl time.
Will that make you happy?
- Yeah.
- Okay.
-All right, thanks.
- I love you.
- I love you.
- I'll see you later.
- Okay.
[tires rumbling]
[ominous music]
[knife slicing]
[suspenseful music]
[knife slicing]
[suspenseful music]
[alice sighing]
[alice] what is wrong with her?
Honestly, how many
times do I have
To tell her the same
thing over and over.
Points face down.
I can't believe this.
[suspenseful music]
- [knife squelching]
- [alice gasping]
[alice whimpering]
Oh, I guess I forgot.
The points need to face down.
- [alice screams]
- [dishes crash]
What was that?
[footsteps pattering]
[claire screaming]
[claire panting]
Oh my god, alice!
[suspenseful music]
- [gurney rattling]
- [radio chatter]
Mr. O'donnell, I'm
sorry for your loss.
I'm detective sanchez,
And this is my partner,
detective martin.
Robbery homicide.
Homicide, what?
Wait, this was an accident.
And you are?
I'm rachel o'donnell.
I'm bill's wife.
I'm the one who found alice.
She slipped and fell.
So, you saw the fall.
No, I was upstairs in my
room, but I heard the crash.
In her preliminary exam,
the m.E. Found a wound
That's not quite
consistent with the rest.
Was there anyone else here?
I was at the drug store.
And, uh.
Claire was doing a yoga class.
And who are you?
I'm just a friend.
We're adopting her baby.
The me will have the final
report in the next few days.
And then we'll have
a clearer picture
Of what really happened.
We'll be in touch.
[suspenseful music]
[liquor splashing]
[somber music]
[claire sighs]
To your mom.
[glasses clinking]
To mom.
I know what it's
like to lose parents.
If you need me, I'm here.
Thanks, that's, uh.
That's nice of you.
[sighs] I can't
imagine what rachel's
Going through right now.
Do we know if they
had a chance to talk?
I don't know.
I mean, if she didn't, she
must be feeling so guilty.
She was so angry.
And I hope that
whatever the holdup
Is with the medical
examiner's office,
It just turns out to be nothing.
You know,
I was thinking,
when the baby is born,
Maybe we could name
him after your mom.
[laughs] a boy named alice?
Sounds like a country song.
[chuckles] I was thinking alex.
That's really sweet of you.
Ooh. [laughs]
No, it's okay.
He's kicking.
Do you want to feel?
Oh no, you don't have to.
He's going to be your son.
I don't feel anything.
[gentle music]
[gasps] oh my god.
I felt him kick.
[claire] yeah, I know.
He's been doing that
a lot lately. [laughs]
What's going on here?
I was just letting bill
feel the little man kick.
Okay, well I think we
all need some sleep.
[suspenseful music]
- All right.
- Right.
Good night.
[suspenseful music]
[suspenseful music]
[bill sighs]
Did you get a chance
to talk to mom before?
And I'll always regret it.
I'm gonna have to go to
her house for a few days.
Get the deed, her will,
gather up some paperwork.
I can come with you.
Just stay here.
'cause clara will need you so
close to the baby's due date.
[suspenseful music]
What were you two talking about
When you were feeling her belly?
Honestly, the baby was kicking,
And she asked me to feel it.
That's all.
[suspenseful music]
[dog barking]
Where are you going?
You haven't had
breakfast or coffee.
Yeah, I have to
leave for a few days.
Okay, and you weren't
going to say goodbye?
I'm sorry?
Well, it's just, I
never took you as rude.
I mean, I'm having your baby.
I've done so many nice things
for you and this house.
I just would like to be treated
with a little appreciation.
Yeah, thank you, claire.
But I have to take
care of a few things.
So, if you need anything,
rachel's around.
[claire] okay,
that's fine, be safe.
[bill] I will, it'll
be just a few days.
[claire] well, I am
going to miss you. Call me.
[suspenseful music]
Ok? Bye.
[suspenseful music]
[car driving off]
[doorbell ringing]
Lindsay, please, please!
I'm not ready to talk
to you about this.
Lindsay, things are spiraling,
And you've always been my go-to.
I am so sorry.
I would never want anything
to happen to samantha.
I love her.
I would give my life
for her if I had to.
[lindsay sighs]
I saw bill touching
claire's belly.
Okay, well you are
adopting the baby
That's living
inside of there, so.
Claire put his hand
under her shirt.
There was this intimacy to it.
And then this morning
he left for the airport,
And she hugged him.
Bill would never cheat on
you, and you know that.
It's not bill that
I'm worried about.
Do you remember if
claire had a crush
On him in high
school or anything?
[chuckles] I have no idea.
I barely knew her.
It was also her idea
for the play date.
I think she had something
to do with samantha.
[lindsay chuckles]
Okay, so what you're saying
is you think she abducted
Samantha because she had a
crush on bill 15 years ago?
She's trying to make me
seem like an unfit mother.
In front of you and
bill and our friends.
She is manipulating everything.
I don't know, rachel.
It's just, it just
sounds a bit crazy.
Maybe it is,
But I know there has to be
more to this than just me.
Well, let's talk to samantha.
Do you? Remember when I came
over and played the other day?
But we didn't play with bubbles.
Yeah, bubbles outside.
It's the first I'm
hearing of this.
Hey, do you remember who
was blowing the bubbles?
The bubble fairy,
she blows bubbles.
The bubble fairy?
Well, what did the
bubble fairy look like?
What else?
What did the bubble
fairy look like?
It's not nice.
[lindsay] what's
not nice, sweetie?
The bubble fairy was fat.
[suspenseful music]
[lindsay] the bubble
fairy was fat.
[phone line ringing]
Hey, what's up?
Hey, I was just at lindsay's.
Good, I'm glad to hear that.
Yeah, samantha told
us there was a woman
Who was blowing bubbles, and
that's why she went outside.
And the woman "was fat."
[sighs] so, you
think it was claire?
Well, she suggested
the play date.
And I'm sure if your
mother were still alive,
We'd find out it wasn't her
idea for the baby shower either.
[traffic humming]
I don't know, rach.
The day of your mother's death,
Whose idea was it to leave
us in the house alone?
Mine. Well, it's funny,
Claire said something about
giving you some space.
Why would she want you
and mom to make amends?
She didn't, I think
it was a setup.
Think about it, bill.
How do you know claire
didn't come back
To the house after you left?
[suspenseful music]
Look, I'm almost at
the car rental place,
But I'm gonna go
back to the airport.
I'll be home in a few hours.
Do not do anything
until I get there, okay?
[suspenseful music]
[claire] can I help you?
[rachel gasps]
Some of your laundry
got mixed up with mine,
So I was just putting it away.
I know you've been having
a hard time recently,
But violating my privacy?
It's not how you go about
fixing your mistakes.
My mistakes?
Can I get the receipt
for your prenatal yoga?
Why would you need that?
Because we're
covering all the costs
Related to the pregnancy.
I'm gonna need you
to be honest with me.
This isn't about the
reimbursement, is it?
What else would it be about?
God, you act so innocent,
But you have always been a
schemer, ever since high school.
What are you talking about?
- Please, please, tell me.
- You know what you did.
No, I really don't.
[yelling] you stole
bill from me!
[whispers] oh my god.
Okay, you have to get
out of this house.
No, no, stop!
- [claire grunting]
- [rachel panting]
[women grunting]
- [hand slapping]
- [rachel groaning]
[gun clicks]
I can give him something that
you never could, a family.
All right, please.
Please don't.
It's time to take
a little drive.
But first, I'm gonna need
you to write a letter.
[suspenseful music]
[sirens blaring]
[suspenseful music]
[rachel] what are we doing here?
[claire] shut up.
Get out.
Get out!
You don't have to do this.
Oh, but I do.
[rachel] you'll never
get away with this.
Bill will find out
the truth eventually.
[claire] I won't let anyone
get in between me and bill.
He will never choose you.
Oh, he's already choosing me.
Haven't you seen the way
he caressed my belly?
[gasps] oh my god.
Who is that?
Justin, meet rachel.
Rachel, that's justin.
Who's justin?
He's the baby daddy.
And the last person
stupid enough to try
And stop me from
being with bill.
Okay, you win, he's yours.
Okay, I will run, I
will just run away!
Please, just let me live.
You're right, bill loves you.
You two should be together.
[suspenseful music]
On your knees next
to that sack of...
Shut up! [groans]
[liquid splashing]
Your water, it's the baby!
Oh, look who decided
to come early?
Okay, just a change of plans.
I'll drive you to the hospital.
No, no, you won't.
Over there.
[claire groans]
[suspenseful music]
[suspenseful music]
[rachel's voice] bill, this
isn't an easy decision for me,
But things haven't
been right for a while.
So, it's time for me to admit
it, and I need to move on.
[suspenseful music]
[claire panting]
We'll have the baby in here.
You can't be serious.
I don't know how
to deliver a baby.
You just stand there and
make sure you don't drop it!
Claire, be realistic! [groans]
Is there anything
in there we can use?
Yeah, but it's like really
dirty and disgusting.
Is there any gauze or wrap?
- Yeah.
- Good.
You're gonna need it.
[gunshot blasting]
[rachel screaming]
I had to even the playing field.
Now hurry up and grab it.
Hurry up!
I can't have you bleeding
out on me. [groans]
I'd hate to deliver
this baby on my own.
I just grazed it.
It should be enough
to keep you in line.
- [claire grunting]
- [objects crashing]
[claire screaming]
- [suspenseful music]
- [car humming]
[claire screaming]
All right, okay.
[claire screaming]
What was that?
Okay, two minutes, two minutes.
All right?
All right.
Can I make a deal with you?
Can you not point the gun at me?
You'd like that, wouldn't you?
I thought that's
why you shot me.
I shot you so you
wouldn't run away.
That doesn't mean you
won't try anything else.
Okay, well, can you at
least put the safety on?
[safety clicking]
Thank you.
All right, okay, it's coming.
[claire screaming]
You got this, you got this!
[claire screaming]
I see the head.
I see the head, keep
breathing, push!
[claire screaming]
[infant crying]
Oh my god.
I'll cut the cord.
He's beautiful.
He's beautiful.
[infant crying]
I'm so tired.
- I can watch him.
- No.
What's in there?
[suspenseful music]
- [rachel groaning]
- [infant crying]
[door creaking]
[claire groaning]
Don't even think about leaving.
I'll kill you if you
try to open the door.
This will all be over soon.
I just need some rest.
[suspenseful music]
Shh, shh.
[claire groaning]
[claire groans]
[suspenseful music]
I'll let you know
if I hear anything.
If you hear anything, you
let me know and call me.
Yeah, yeah, I'll call
you and you call me.
Definitely, I'll be here, okay?
- Okay, hurry up.
- Thanks.

It's gonna be fine.
Are you alone?
Yeah, I'm at the titan factory.
She said she was here
and there was a gunshot.
A gunshot?
Yeah, a gunshot.
- Well, wait just a...
- No, I'm not gonna wait.
We're going to...
[suspenseful music]
[muffled infant crying]
[rachel panting]
[infant cooing]
[foot hopping]
Shh, shh, shh.
Shh, shh, shh.
It's okay.
It's okay, I'll be right back.

Give me my baby!

Oh, bill, thank god you're here.
She, rachel, she tried
to kill me, and our baby.
You delivered? Where is he?
He's just over there.
Alex, he's a beautiful baby boy.
It's alex, just like we
talked about, remember?
Okay, claire, give me the gun.
Bill, didn't you just
hear what I said?
She kidnapped me!
She tried to take our baby!
She was jealous that she
couldn't get pregnant.
And of how close
we were growing.
She confessed to
killing your mother!
No, no, I don't
believe any of that.
Why don't you believe me?
We have a connection.
We have a deep connection.
Since when?
Don't you remember glen's party?
I was out by the
pool and you came,
And you sat down next to me.
And I was going to tell you
about a crush that I had.
Well, yeah, all I
remember I is talking,
But I don't know about what.
Well, I remember every word
Because I was going to
tell you that I loved you.
Oh, claire.
We were just friends.
We spent four nights
a week together.
No, we would talk
about more than
What was just in the books.
And the way that we
would laugh together.
And then what about when we
would go and get ice cream?
Yeah, and you would always
hold the door open for me.
And you would get the ice cream,
you would never let me pay.
And if it got late, then
you would walk me home,
All the way to the front door.
And then she came along
and she ruined everything!
I'm sorry, yeah,
yeah, you're right.
I did, you're right.
I did all those things.
And we did, we do, still
have that connection.
You're the only man who has ever
Made me feel like
I'm worth anything.
That's because you are claire.
And if I had said
something back then,
Then I wouldn't have to be
doing all of this right now!
But I'm so glad that you have.
I am thankful that
you're still in my life.
I mean, you were there
for me when my mom died.
And you're giving me a family,
and that's all I ever wanted.
