Fiance Killer (2018) Movie Script

My mother always
told me that what you stood for
was more important
than the bottom line.
And that's why
at Veritase Cosmetics
everything we make is 100%
certified organic.
It's been almost 15 years
since we started,
and we know
we're not the biggest
or the most expensive,
but that's
not what we set out to be.
We just wanted to be the best.
What do you think?
I think it's perfect.
The Young Women's Business
League is gonna love it.
All right. Great.
I just wanna go through it
- one more time.
- Uh, it's 5:30.
Don't you have that early dinner
with Cameron tonight?
Thank you. Yes.
Okay. Great.
Happy hour.
All right. So where are we at
with the final presentation?
Well, we have our
three finalists,
but they're expensive.
Well, we have to spend money
to make money.
I don't have to tell you
how nervous
that statement makes me.
Oh, come on, Grace.
You've been my CFO long enough
to know that we got this.
Come on. Say it with me.
We got this.
All right.
You keep working on that.
Anything else?
Uh, yeah. Your daughter has some
sort of a surprise for you,
but you didn't hear it from me.
Okay. Great.
I'll see you tomorrow.
Have fun.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Oh, I'm so happy
you're home safe.
Yeah, well,
it's good to be back.
So how was Playa?
I wanna hear all about it.
Oh, and what is
the big surprise?
it's not so much a what,
as a who.
Mom, I'd like you to meet
Brent Danner,
my fiance.
I'm engaged.
Mom, say something.
- Uh, I'm just...
- Shocked.
I'm sure.
How did this happen?
Um, uh, why don't we sit down,
and I'll tell you all
about it, hmm?
There I was, 7:30 at night,
storm rolling in off the gulf.
It's raining really hard. I'm...
frantically late for dinner.
I look up, and I see this one.
Um, and I was waiting for a taxi
and, of course,
I forgot my umbrella.
Yeah. So I ran up,
I take my coat,
I put it over her head,
and I say...
"You know, they invented
something for this."
Yeah. And she says,
"Yeah, it's called a jacket."
- Bug.
- Bug.
Uh, anyways, then we spent
the rest of the night
exploring the city.
And Brent even
pulled a few strings
and got us
into the state museum.
Yeah. I know a guy
who used to run security there.
What line of work
are you in, Brent?
I'm a contractor.
Uh, he's being modest.
He runs a nonprofit
that he cofounded.
They modernize village
in the developing world.
Is that something
that you went to school for?
Well, I mean,
I got my MBA from USC,
but, honestly,
it doesn't really help
when you're up on a roof
laying wire in 100-degree heat.
That's tough, uh, tough job.
Um, something you see yourself
doing long-term?
Uh, call me idealistic but, uh,
I think there's more to life
than money.
She did what?
She got engaged,
ring and everything.
It's insane.
Well, is he hot?
Come on, Grace. It's my
baby girl we're talking about.
I know, but put yourself
in her flip-flops.
I mean, she just got a full ride
to her dream law program,
including her first space
without roommates, and then
she meets some handsome stranger
who sweeps her off her feet
and proposes marriage.
Her future is bright.
Yeah, specially,
after her birthday.
The big 2-5.
That's when her trust fund
kicks in, right?
Yup. $3 million
is a lot of money.
And it's a target.
Okay. I know
that you never really saw
eye-to-eye with your father,
but he knew
what he was doing
when he left her that money.
She's a smart girl
with a good head
on her shoulders.
Grace, she's too young for this.
Right. Listen, I'm off to bed.
We've got an early day tomorrow.
You should try
to get some rest too.
Good night.
I mean, I like some
of the design elements,
but I don't think that
this is Veritase.
Okay. All right.
So we'll keep the model.
Oh, hello,
tall, dark, and handsome.
Brent, what are you doing here?
I brought you lunch.
So how did you know
I like sushi?
Cameron said
it was your favorite.
Well, that's very thoughtful.
She also said that you
don't like surprises.
And that is also true.
Look, I'm not sure
if she told you this, but...
both of my parents died
when I was very young.
Oh, I'm sorry.
And I never thought
that I'd have a chance
to be a part of a family again.
I don't wanna mess that up.
Just so you know,
I won't marry your daughter
without your blessing.
- You won't?
- No.
That's why I'm here.
may I have your blessing
to marry Cameron?
Brent, I really
appreciate the effort,
but I just met you last night.
I think it would be
in all of our best interests
if maybe we just slow down
a little bit.
These things take time.
We could revisit
this conversation in six months.
Yeah. You're right.
You know, these things
do take time, and...
I wanna do this the right way.
I'm glad we had this talk.
Well, I should get out
of your hair.
I'm sure you have
a lot of work to do.
Who's Brent Holvik?
I thought your name
was Brent Danner.
Who's Brent Holvik?
I am.
Yes, I was born Brent
Holvik, but...
after my, um, mother passed,
I took her maiden name, Danner,
in her honor.
Oh, that's very sweet.
Sharon, I need you to run
a check on someone for me.
You what?
I ran a credit check on him.
Do you have any idea
what a breach of trust that is?
I followed my intuition
and it paid off.
There's a lot about Brent's
past that he's not telling you.
What are you talking about?
Well, he changed
his name five years ago
after he filed for bankruptcy.
And before that,
there's a huge hole
in his record, all right?
No credit history,
no bank accounts, nothing.
It's like he stopped existing.
He's bankrupt
because his business partner
embezzled everything and ran
their startup into the ground.
Oh, and that huge hole,
he was in South America
doing deep research
on rural villages.
So, yeah, he sounds
like a real bad guy.
I don't know
what kind of guy he is
because I met him 24 hours ago.
And he comes waltzing
into your life
a month before you inherit
$3 million.
So forgive me if
I'm a little suspicious,
okay? Uh, I'm just...
I'm trying to protect you.
Well, this is
the wrong way to do that.
I just wanna be
a part of your life.
Yeah, well, you're about
15 years too late for that.
You know, that's not fair.
After your father died,
I started Veritase
because I need it to support us.
But I'm here now, okay?
And I... I just wanna help.
I understand that. I do.
But this, this is not helping.
Where are you going?
To plan my wedding, alone.
I can't believe you.
I missed you.
You're not supposed to be here.
And you're supposed
to be engaged, but...
what your little fiancee
doesn't know won't hurt her,
at least, not yet.
She's still innocent,
and that's how
she needs to stay,
until she turns 25.
And becomes my wife.
And then she dies.
And, legally,
all that money goes to her
poor grieving husband.
You don't know
how I've missed you.
She's home. You got to go.
I'll come to you.
Tomorrow night.
Don't forget.
Hey, what's wrong?
It's my mom.
She ran a credit check on you.
Uh, why...
Why would she do that?
Because she's a paranoid.
She even revealed you
being bankrupt
like it's a lie or something.
Uh, but we talked about that.
I know. I know.
Uh, I'm sorry.
She's always been like this.
She's never there for me
when I needed her,
but as soon as
I brought someone home,
she finds something
wrong with them.
And I know she's just
trying to protect me,
but between that and trying
to plan a wedding, I...
Uh, it's overwhelming,
all right?
Hey, hey, hey,
I know you are going through
rough time right now, but...
you're gonna get through this.
I love you.
That's all that matters, right?
I love you too.
Why don't... why don't you
call her tomorrow.
I'm sure she'll think
differently about it
when she sleeps on it.
Okay. All right. I will.
Um, I'm gonna go upstairs, okay?
Hey, mom.
Listen, I said
some things yesterday
that I probably shouldn't have.
But I just think
if you could spend some time
getting to know Brent,
you could see
why I love him so much.
Okay. We'll give him
a second chance, of course.
For you, honey, all right?
How about dinner tonight
at the house around 7:00?
Actually, that works.
Okay. Great. Thank you, Mommy.
Thank you so much.
Hey, we'll bring the wine.
All right.
I'm looking forward to it.
So you'd already
drawn up all the plans.
You had everything measured
down to the last square foot.
So? What's wrong with that?
I was a very thorough kid.
It was a tree house.
I'd love to see that.
Be careful what you wish for.
So, Brent, how are things
at the nonprofit?
We're busy.
Um, I've been meeting
with a friend of mine
from Guatemala.
A friend?
You mean, the deputy...
of the Guatemalan
State Department.
My buddy, Rigo.
We've been trying
to work together
on something for a while now.
There's a lot
of need down there.
But it's difficult
navigating the bureaucracy.
And that's where Rigo comes in.
We're pushing
the permits through.
We're breaking ground
this November.
What? Won't you be in
the middle of your program then?
I will, but Brent
can travel back and forth.
He doesn't have
to be down there full time.
Mom, we'll figure it out.
Rest room?
Uh, yeah,
next to the front door.
Excuse me.
Will you stop
being so judgmental?
What are you doing in here?
I was looking for a pen.
This is a private office.
You can't be in here.
Oh, I'm so sorry.
I... I didn't mean to intrude.
What's going on here?
I don't know, Cameron.
Why don't you ask Brent?
Like I said,
I was looking for a pen.
I wanted to give you
a thank-you card.
I wanted you to have these.
They were my mother's.
That is so sweet.
I'm sorry, Brent.
I wanted to give you
a second chance but I can't.
What's this supposed to mean,
that I'm replacing
your dead mother?
- Mom.
- I can't play along
like this, Cameron.
Mother, stop.
Number one, you're too young.
I can't believe
you are doing this right now.
What am I supposed to do?
- I don't...
- Nicole,
I love your daughter very much,
and I wanna marry her.
But I also respect
your relationship,
and I don't want to get
in the middle of it.
I think it's best
if I just left.
No. Brent, wait.
Wait. Brent, please.
He tried to give you a gift
and you turned it around on him?
What is the matter with you?
Brent, wait. Let me explain.
She's treating
you like you're some
gold digger who's waiting
for me to inherit the money
before skipping out on me.
Well, you know money
is the last thing
that's important to me.
I mean, if it's that's much
of a problem then...
we could wait.
We'll be waiting a long time
for the world's
most paranoid mom
to come to her senses.
Who keeps texting you?
It's Rigo. He's working late
trying to finalize the contract.
She's never
gonna change her mind.
She's probably not even
gonna come to the wedding.
I know her.
There's gonna be
some emergency at Veritase.
You know, I don't know why
I'm trying to pull
this together.
why do we even need
a big wedding anyway?
What do you mean?
We could just... elope.
- Really?
- Yeah. I mean,
you got this place
for a couple more months
till school finishes.
So we've got a roof
over our heads.
We're in love.
What more do we need?
We could hop on a flight
tomorrow to Vegas.
Uh-uh, no. Let's do it tonight.
Well, I was just thinking
with the weekend coming,
- I mean, we could...
- No, babe,
I don't wanna wait.
I'm ready.
Let's do it now.
Let's do it.
Hey, it's Brent, can't get
to the phone right now.
Leave me a message.
Is this more of an "I
need a hug" moment?
You didn't know?
She eloped?
Maybe she was
trying to save money.
She did this
because I told her not to.
Sharon, can you please cancel
the rest of my meetings
for today?
No. You don't wanna do that.
Hold off.
Why not?
Because she's already
made her choice.
The more you attack that,
the harder she clings to him.
Okay. So what am I
supposed to do?
Oh, what would you
want your mother to do
if you ran off and married
some handsome stranger?
- Here we go.
- Okay. Put me down.
- Yes. I am done.
- Me too.
Water, my wife.
Thank you, my husband.
I'm gonna hop in the shower.
Hmm, you want me
to order a pizza?
- Sounds great.
- Okay.
You're not expecting anyone,
are you?
Uh, no.
Can I come in?
Cameron, when your dad died,
I should have been there
for you.
And instead of dealing
with the pain,
I focused on the business.
I don't know. I thought
it would help me forget.
And that wasn't fair to you.
And I don't wanna lose
any more time with you.
I was thinking...
for your 25th birthday,
I'd love to throw you
a huge party.
And you could see it as,
I don't know,
a belated wedding reception too.
I just wanna celebrate you.
I wanna celebrate both of you.
Brent, I owe you an apology
for the way I treated you.
Do you think maybe
we could start over?
I would love that.
Hey, sweetie, I think
I'm gonna go take a bubble bath.
Um, listen, Rigo just texted me.
He's got a layover
and he wants me to meet him
for some drinks at the airport.
It might go a little late.
You don't mind, do you?
No, of course not.
Thanks, babe.
Have fun.
How could you?
You went and married her.
That was the plan.
Not on that night.
That was our anniversary.
You promised me.
All right. Calm down.
Don't tell me to calm down.
Do you understand
what I've sacrificed for this?
How much I've put on the line
to get us this far?
My future, my career,
our life together.
And you go off and do some
last-minute improvising?!
- No. It was her idea.
- Oh.
So she's calling the shots now.
Don't forget,
I picked this girl out
after her grandfather
drafted that trust.
I read through her
pathetic social media posts
and waded through
her idiotic Instagram
to make sure that you were
everything she wanted.
All you have to do
is play that part.
- And that's what I'm doing.
- Is that
what you were doing in Vegas?
I did what I had to do, okay?
I'm sorry.
Don't tell me you're sorry.
Stick to the plan, our plan.
Okay. So here's the invoice
for the website renovations.
Yeah, that looks great.
Oh, okay. So now on to something
that you're actually
going to care about,
reviewing the menu
for Cameron's wedding reception.
So there's gluten-free
and vegetarian options
for people like you,
and then
there's some normal food
for people like me.
I love the idea of cupcakes.
Great. Just make sure
nothing has any nuts.
I already went over
Cameron's allergy with them.
They deal with this
all the time.
They're very careful.
No nuts.
Okay. Perfect.
They're gonna love it.
Yeah, I hope so.
I have a lot of lost time
to make up for.
Well, you know what,
you've been putting in
a lot of extra hours lately.
So when I make
that cupcake order,
I'm gonna have them throw
in a couple of extra for you.
Here you go.
It's perfect.
Would you like to add
a personalized card?
Yeah. Um, "Dearest Lexi",
a taste of things to come.
"Love, Brent."
- Here you go.
- Thank you.
Nicole. What a surprise.
What are you doing here?
Just running some errands.
How about you?
Oh, anniversary present, uh,
I mean,
it came about a month ago.
Oh, that's really sweet.
Can I see?
I heard you had
a big meeting last night.
Oh, yeah. Rigo had a layover,
so I met him for some drinks
at the airport.
Oh, what bar?
I have meetings
there all the time?
Oh, I'm sorry. Late night.
Uh, his flight got delayed,
so I met him at a bar downtown.
Oh, Brent, this is gorgeous.
She's gonna love this.
I thought so too.
I have to get to a meeting.
The world
can't save itself, right?
But, uh, it's great to see you.
You too.
Take care.
Having a good time?
What the hell
are you doing here?
I wanted to make sure
you're performing
your duties as a good husband.
Uh, you can't be here.
Hey, what if she wakes up?
What if she what?
what if your wife wakes up,
finds out her Prince Charming
has been lying to her face.
- Shh.
- This whole time?
You are gonna mess
this whole thing up.
No. You're going to mess it up.
That girl is in your head.
No. That's ridiculous.
You don't know
what you're talking about.
You don't think I know
how she touches you?
You keep playing your role,
at least, until the reception
this weekend,
when your wife is going to have
a terrible accident.
No, no, not at the reception.
There'll be
too many people there.
It'll be perfect.
It'll happen in plain sight.
Everyone will see you
doing everything you could
to save her, but, of course,
that's not going to be possible
without this.
There's probably...
a backup EpiPen
at the mother's house.
Make sure that one's
misplaced too.
When it's all over,
the blame falls on the caterer,
and we'll live
happily ever after.
Do you love her?
Babe. What are you doing?
All right, get out of here, go.
Uh, I was getting some water.
Sound like you were
talking to somebody.
Are you sure?
'Cause I heard you whispering.
Oh, trying to get this open,
I was probably.
- Oh.
- Talking to myself.
Well, you wanna get back to bed?
- Yes.
- Let's go.
All right. Yeah.
No, no, I'll hold.
I'm on hold.
Waiting for confirmation
of the wire transfer.
Are you nervous?
I don't know.
You should be.
$3 million is a lot of money.
Have you thought about what
you're gonna do with it yet?
Well actually, um,
I've been talking with Brent
about maybe using some of it
to build a house.
There's that spot that I like,
and I talked
to the real estate agent
the other day
and he said
it's still available.
I know. I know, you want me
to think about it
for a while
before I do anything crazy.
No. It's not that, it's...
And I have been thinking
about it for a long time.
I've just been waiting for it
to feel right.
You know, I'm with Brent and...
It feels right.
I know you're still getting
to know him,
but, Mommy, he makes me happy.
Well, if he makes you happy,
honey, I'm happy.
It's all that matters to me.
All right.
Very good. Okay.
All right.
We're all set at the bank.
We're almost finished.
I just need your signature
on a few more documents and...
Um, Alexa, do you have
those forms?
Of course, Mr. Rader.
Thank you.
Sign here.
You are officially
a multi-millionaire.
Oh, my God.
Well, I guess we know
who's buying dinner.
Would you look
what the cat dragged in.
Come to apologize?
I came here to bargain.
You've had your fun,
but for this to work,
it has to stop now.
All of this has to stop.
This doesn't stop
until it's over.
Well, trust me.
It'll be over a lot quicker
if you give me
some breathing room.
Let me do what I have to do.
What's in the box?
I got you this to make up for us
not being together
on our anniversary.
I believe in us.
Now I need you to believe in me.
Let me do this.
All right.
Unrefined nut protein oil.
One drop and it's all over.
Don't fail me.
Are you sure I have to wear
a tie to this thing?
Yes. I want you looking dapper.
Good luck with that.
Well, we never had
a proper wedding
for all of our friends
to see us dressed up.
I just wanna show everyone
how handsome you are.
All right. Let's see
if I can fix this tie.
So, how does it feel
to be married
to a bona fide millionaire?
Look, I want you to know
that this money
is never gonna mess
anything up between us.
I wanted you
before you were rich
and nothing's ever
gonna change that.
I love you, Cam.
I love you, too.
You don't know what
you're doing with this, are you?
No, I really don't.
Get out of here.
- You're a bug.
- Yeah.
Babe, have you seen my phone?
Uh, yeah. It's right here.
Ah, doy.
You know, I swear all the money
in the world,
you can't buy a better memory.
Oh, hey, let me help you
with your collar.
Please, yeah.
'Cause we got to go.
All right, all right.
Yup. Center. Awesome. Okay.
Now, let's go before we're late
to our own wedding reception.
Okay. I'll be right down.
I love you, Cam.
I love you, Cam.
I love y...
Oh, sweetheart,
you look so pretty.
And you, Brent,
you are so handsome.
You even wore a tie.
I love a man in a tie.
See, what did I tell you
about the tie?
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Hi, Terry.
Here's the man of the hour.
So what do you think?
I... It's amazing I mean,
I don't even know
what to say, Mom.
And, oh, the food,
- Yeah.
- Yeah, it... it's perfect.
You know
I don't wanna hold you back.
You go talk to your friends.
- Okay.
- Okay. All right.
Come on, I've got two
I really want you to meet.
You're gonna love them.
Kind of surprised.
I just missed being
in Cameron's wedding.
I'm so excited.
Babe, this is Nate and Savannah.
They're who
I was telling you about.
- Great to meet you.
- You too.
We've been dying to meet the guy
who swept Cameron off her feet.
Now I can see
why she fell in love you.
- Ah.
- Aw.
Um, can I get you guys a refill?
- Sure.
- Yeah. Vodka Martini?
- No vermouth, please.
- Same here.
- Be right back, babe.
- Okay.
Isn't he a love?
That was really cute.
He's great.
- So I was like, yeah.
- Here we go.
- Thank you.
- Oh, thank you.
- Yeah, that sure took a while.
- Oh, the bartender
messed up the order.
He's trying to get, um,
make that dirty Margarita
that you like.
What's more, we had
to spend the night in our car,
because your wife
had lost her hotel room
in a poker game.
- What?
- Hey, that hand was not my fault.
She was such a wildcat.
But in the best possible way.
- Oh, sure.
- Yeah.
Oh, who's that?
There they are.
The happy couple.
I'm so sorry, I don't believe
we've been properly introduced.
I'm his sister.
I'm so glad we finally meet.
Oh, my God.
Brent, you didn't tell me
you had family over here.
You said
all of your family and friends
were on the West Coast.
Yeah. I did.
How strong
were those dirty Margaritas
you guys had again?
He doesn't really like
to talk about me.
I got all the good looks
and social graces
and Brent got all the leftovers.
Oh, well, this is great.
I guess now I finally get
to hear all the stories
about what this guy
was like as a kid.
I have so many stories
that you need to hear.
Excuse me.
I'm afraid those stories
are gonna have to wait.
Everyone, dinner is served.
Oh, great, I'm starving.
What do you make of her?
Brent told me
he didn't have any family.
Oh, this is a fantastic day.
Can you agree? Oh, my God.
I love this.
I really... I really
have always wanted a sister.
It's going to be great.
We're gonna do
all the fun stuff.
Brent isn't one
for mani-pedi nights, trust me.
So what do we need to know
about your brother?
Any family secrets?
Oh, there's lots.
Have you told them
about Uncle Lloyd?
Uncle Lloyd, no, of course not.
You should.
Why don't you tell them?
He was our crazy uncle
who would show up
at inappropriate times
and ruin family get-togethers.
Isn't that right, Tara?
Well you know, we all have
that one crazy family member
that no one wants to talk about.
Would you, uh, excuse me?
Oh, sure.
She is a doll.
Yeah. She's a peach.
Um, excuse me.
Well, that's some surprise, huh?
What the hell
are you doing here?
I wanted to see you
squirm a little,
let you know how it feels
to be on the receiving end
of some... How did you put it?
Oh, yeah.
Well, it's a stupid idea.
You're gonna ruin everything.
That's exactly why
I need to be here.
To make sure you don't.
Now I think it's time
for dessert.
Do it.
I got the EpiPen from her purse.
Did you get the one
from the bathroom?
One bite...
and the money is all ours.
Who's ready for cupcakes?
I, uh, wanna say a few words,
since my brother did some
improvising with the wedding.
I just wanna say
that Brent has told me so much
about his new family
that I feel like
I know you both already.
Nicole, I know that you guys
got off to a little bit
of a bumpy start,
but let's be honest,
it's asking a lot of someone
to have a man show up and say,
"Hey, you've never
met me before.
But I'd like
to marry your daughter."
But from everything I've seen,
you've welcomed Brent and today
maybe me and into your family.
And Cameron,
keep an eye on this one.
Excuse me for a minute.
- Grace.
- Oh, of course.
I'll get the champagne.
Pink is for the blushing bride.
I just wanna say
how glad I am
Brent met someone like you,
and that you're willing
to put up with someone like him.
So, here's to you, Cameron.
Babe, what's wrong?
- Cameron?
- Breathe. Breathe.
She's in anaphylactic shock.
Call 911.
Grace, get her purse.
I got it. I got it.
Come on, just breathe. Breathe.
Hurry up, Grace.
It's not in here.
The bathroom
there's another EpiPen
in the bathroom.
- It's not in there.
- What?
Did you check the side drawer
in the kitchen sink?
Yes. It's not in there.
I must have forgotten
to get a refill.
Cam, stay with me, baby.
Stay with me.
Okay. 911 has been called.
Your daughter
was extremely lucky today.
If there wasn't an EM so close by,
I think we'd be having
a very different conversation.
As it is, Cameron,
you'll probably feel
a little dizzy
but there won't be
any long-lasting effects.
We should have you out of here
in the next 24 hours.
Thank God for that.
What caused it?
Most likely was something
that you ate.
But the caterer knew
about her allergy.
I was guaranteed that nothing
would have any nuts in it.
Then he screwed up.
Well, it's not uncommon
for there to be
some cross-contamination
in the preparation of food.
But whatever caused this
would've been
a lot stronger than that.
That's why it's imperative
to keep an EpiPen with you
wherever you go.
- But there was one in my purse.
- It wasn't there, babe.
And I guess I forgot to replace
the one in the bathroom.
I'm so sorry, Cam.
All right, I have a couple here
that I could send you home with.
For now, I want to keep you
here overnight
just to make sure
that you're clear.
Thank you, doctor.
Very much.
I know what you're gonna say.
Don't pay the caterer?
Well, we don't have
to worry about that.
Brent tore them a new one
on the phone.
It was amazing.
He was relentless.
Oh, no.
What is it?
Grace says there's
some emergency at the office.
This late at night?
- Any idea what it is?
- It's probably nothing.
With all that's been going on,
the party
and now you getting sick,
maybe when you're feeling better
we could do something together.
- Hmm, like what?
- Well, I married you so fast
we never got a chance
to go on a honeymoon together.
That sounds amazing.
Everything okay?
Yeah. I mean, I guess so.
Went to voicemail,
but I'm sure whatever it is,
Grace can handle it.
I'm gonna stay here
with you, okay?
No, no.
I'm fine, plus Brent's here.
And I can already feel whatever
the doctor gave me kicking in.
- Are you sure?
- Mm-hmm.
Let me walk you to your car.
Good night, baby.
You'll take care of her
for me, won't you?
Yeah, of course.
Stay here all night
if they let me.
All right. I'll come back
as soon as I can.
Don't do that.
Give me one good reason not to.
How about
the 20 security cameras
you passed on the way in here?
You don't think somebody's
gonna recognize you
from the party that you crashed?
You kill this girl
in a sterile hospital,
everyone's gonna look at me.
And that $3 million is gone.
All right, you two,
visiting hours are over.
Now scoot.
If you think I'm going
to sit through
any more nights of you in bed
with that spoiled bitch,
you are dead wrong.
Time's up.
She's 25, the money is there,
let's get this over with
and move on.
Is this some kind of game
to you?
I'm not the one
who couldn't follow through
on what needed to be done.
What is that supposed to mean?
You left that EpiPen
in the bathroom.
I had to pull it just like
I have to do everything.
I moved it.
You left it there
because you don't have the guts
to go all the way.
I've seen the way
you look at her.
You've never looked
at me that way.
You know that's not true.
You switched the cupcakes.
Because Nicole was suspicious.
She already didn't trust me
and then you show up
after I told her
I didn't have any family.
I'll take care of Nicole.
You've got to be smart.
What are you suggesting?
- A honeymoon.
- What?
Are you crazy?
Trust me.
You're not playing
a role with me
the same way you are with
her, are you?
You know I'm not.
Prove it.
Evening, Ms. Winters.
You said there
was an office emergency.
You sent me a text.
No. I didn't send one.
Look, it's... it's not even
turned on.
I must have powered it off
when I put it in the charger.
There's no sent text to me,
but I got one.
Well, I didn't send it.
Listen, sweetheart,
it has been a long day.
We had the party
and the scare with Cameron.
No. No, something
really strange is happening.
I spoke to Brent tonight,
I asked him about his sister.
He said, "I never told you
that I was an only child."
And I could have sworn
that's exactly
what he said to me.
And then I'm looking
through my phone
trying to find a picture
of Tara at the party
and every single picture,
her head is turned,
like she didn't wanna
be photographed.
No, I think I got one.
And that necklace.
Grace, that necklace.
I was with Brent
when he bought it.
He told me
it was a present for Cameron.
Listen. Sweetheart,
I'm gonna look into this
for you, okay?
Yes. And right now,
I want you to make me a drink.
Okay. You got it. Come on.
Okay. Oh.
What about this one?
No, that's not her.
Here, try this,
Tara Holvik, H-O-L-V-I-K.
What's that?
That's Brent's real last name.
Oh, nothing on social media.
Wait a minute.
This is interesting.
There's public record
with an address,
it's from few years back.
That's right upstate.
Oh, let me see what I can
dig up on this address.
Thanks, Grace.
Of course.
- Hi.
- What the hell?
What are you doing here?
What is this?
It's the house on the lake
that "Rigo" is going to
let you stay at
before you kick off
your dream honeymoon.
That's where you're taking her.
And whose house is this?
It is a property held in trust
by Rader's law firm.
Don't worry,
I confirmed that the owners
will be out of the country
through the end of the year.
This is where
we'll finally do it.
Kill your wife.
The property is right
on the lake,
it is the perfect place
for someone to have an accident,
get themselves drowned.
It could take days
to find the body,
and then you legally get
every last penny
of that $3 million
free and clear
and then we get to spend
the rest of our lives together.
So, first we have the
Mont Saint-Michel on Saturday
and we'll stay on the coast,
before we travel up to "Paree."
And if we're going to Paris,
we have to see the Eiffel Tower.
Oh, the Eiffel Tower? Come on.
It's just so...
- Yeah.
- I know. I know. But...
Oh, come on, we're going
all the way to Paris.
Hey, I'm gonna honeymoon you
all over France, okay?
But first,
I got a surprise for you.
Rigo has a house upon the lake
that he offered to let us use,
so I was thinking that you
and I could go there,
just the two of us,
before we fly off.
All the people in all the world,
and somehow I found you.
I'm just lucky, I guess.
So we're gonna get
started off easy,
talk a little bit
about your daughter,
and you can go right
into your sales pitch.
Okay. Sounds great.
All right.
Let's get started then.
Tara's updated address.
I'm driving up there
to talk to her.
I wish I could go with you,
but where is it?
Rochester, it won't take long.
I'll meet you for dinner
and I'll call you
if I find out anything.
- All right.
- Uh, do well.
Drive safe.
Safe is my middle name.
All right, Nicole,
let's get started.
- Hi.
- Can I help you?
Yeah. I'm... I'm looking
for a Tara Holvik.
I think she might be
a nurse here.
No. Not exactly.
She's a patient.
Are you a friend or family?
Oh, a friend of the family.
I... I know her brother.
Okay. Follow me.
Tara, there's
someone here to see you,
a friend of your brother's.
You know Brent?
Yes. I do.
Oh, hey, Nic, it's me.
Listen, I... I just spent
a half an hour with her.
It's Brent's sister, all right.
She's a long-term patient here
in... in a wheelchair.
She's needed
assisted-care living
for the last decade.
So whoever that was
at the reception,
it was not Tara Holvik.
I... I'll
just see you at dinner,
I have a lot more
than I need to...
If you are satisfied
with your message
and would like to send,
press one.
If you'd like to delete
your message, press two.
Oh, bingo.
Night desk, can I help you?
Hi. Yeah. A friend of mine
came in there earlier today
to check on my daughter-in-law,
Tara Holvik?
Yes, she was here.
Um, I was just wondering
if maybe something
strange happened?
She was supposed
to come back here
and meet me for dinner
and she didn't show up.
No, nothing strange.
She was here
for about 30 minutes,
and then she left.
Okay. Well, thank you very much.
Get out of bed and follow me.
So do you wanna tell me
what the hell is going on
or do I have to guess?
Oh, my God. What the...
I did what needed to be done.
She went and found your sister.
I can't believe you killed her.
She was going to tell Nicole.
Nobody gets between us
and that money.
Now give me a hand.
You have the tickets?
You have the address.
I'll follow you up tomorrow.
As soon as the sun goes down,
bring your wife down
to the wine cellar.
We'll need all night
to take care of her body.
Good morning, sleepyhead.
I made you breakfast.
Uh, unfortunately, I got to run.
- Oh.
- Oh, but I'll take one to go.
I just got to go over a few
things with the contractor.
When I get back,
we'll be on our way.
You are forgetting something.
- I'll be back soon.
- You promise?
I promise.
I know, I spoke
to someone yesterday
and they said the same thing,
that she can't be classified
as a missing person
for 24 hours.
Yes. I know,
but this isn't like her and...
All right, thank you, officer.
All right, I'll call back.
- Are you here?
- Don't move.
Whoa, whoa, whoa! Hey! It's me.
What are you doing here?
You're supposed to be
on your way up
to the lake house.
I had to see you,
I needed to do something first.
Do what?
I want you to know, before I go,
exactly what I feel for you.
I love you, Lex.
After all this is over,
I wanna make you mine
for the rest of my life.
Go see how it
sparkles in the light.
You just made me
the happiest girl in the world.
I haven't seen Brent
since the accident.
The nerve damage
just kept getting worse.
I couldn't take care
of myself anymore.
That's how I ended up here.
Like it wasn't
bad enough already
to lose our parents
in that crash.
Anyway a while after,
I received a letter informing me
that Brent was in prison
somewhere out west.
I don't remember
what he was convicted of,
but even after he got out
he never came to see me.
I'm so sorry.
What about a, uh, a non-profit
revamping infrastructure
in the developing world.
He said he was a contractor.
That doesn't sound like him.
He also said he is friends
with somebody who grew up
with the Guatemalan president.
Here's what I know about Brent,
and I told this to your friend
when she was down here earlier.
He's dangerous.
Be careful.
Accidents happen to people
who get too close to him.
Where is he now?
With my daughter.
I love you.
Honeymoon itinerary.
Got it.
Thanks, Cam.
What do you think?
Oh, my gosh.
Great, right?
I don't know
what I was expecting
but this is amazing.
How much is Rigo
charging us with this?
It's all taken care of.
This is the surprise
I've been working on.
That view was incredible.
And it's just the two of us.
No distractions.
What am I supposed to do
for a week without Instagram?
I am not sharing you
with anyone,
especially Instagram.
Now, wait
'til you see the inside.
Oh, it's perfect.
All right,
save a little excitement.
Oh, look at that fireplace.
- You like it?
- Absolutely.
I want you to have yourself
a look around
and I'll go get
all of your bags.
Hmm-hmm-hmm, you're so cute.
Cameron, baby,
you have to call me
as soon as you get this.
It's an emergency.
I need to talk to u, honey.
- Hey, close your eyes.
- What?
Close your eyes,
cover them with your hands
so you can't see.
Keep them closed, no peeking.
I'm not.
- Okay. Open them.
- What's this?
It's a honeymoon present.
Oh, I feel bad
I didn't get you anything.
Are you kidding me?
Look around.
This is the present
you've given me
and now it's my turn
to give you one.
- Open it. Open it.
- Okay.
It's a house.
Our house.
That's... That's amazing.
Hey, what is it?
No, it's just, uh,
I never knew how much two people
could really love each other
until I met you.
I love you so much, Cam.
And I'll love you forever.
What are you doing here?
Where's my phone, where's
my phone, where's my phone?
Cameron, are you in here?
I've had just about enough
of you saying her name.
Now I have to attend
to your blushing bride.
rest easy 'til I get back.
Why are you doing this?
You're Brent's sister.
You know, I have to admit.
That's a little bit of a lie.
Who are you?
As far as you're concerned,
I am...
I'm nothing.
What are you talking about?
I'm talking about you, Cam.
You know, my entire life
I've had to fight.
I fought everyone and everything
that stood in my way.
Teachers, counselors,
the system.
But it was never enough.
There are always people
like you.
People who had it all.
So I made up my mind
to find some
poor little rich girl
and take everything from her.
You know how much money I have.
Well, my mom has more,
she'll pay you
to let me and Brent go.
Call her, she'll tell you...
Anything you want.
You and Brent
aren't walking away from here,
not after everything
I've put into this,
only to watch him
throw it all away.
All my work,
coming up with every detail,
studying your idiotic
social media posts,
training him to be the man
you would fall for
just like that.
What do you mean?
Oh, he didn't tell you?
Everything with him
has been an act.
A lie.
Now I'm going
to make him suffer,
the same way
that he's made me suffer.
And unfortunately for you,
you're the button I push
to make him hurt.
I don't care
what Brent was before.
I believe that he loves me,
with or without the money.
He found something with me
that you could never give him,
and that's what's
driving you so crazy.
I'm going to watch his face
when he sees your dead body,
right before I kill him too.
It won't change the fact
that Brent loves me,
not you.
Don't make this any harder
than it has to be.
You know, I would say
it's been nice knowing you.
It really hasn't.
- Are you okay?
- Yeah.
Are you hurt?
Okay. Look...
Get your hands off of her!
Give it up, Lexi.
It's over.
You're right.
It's over for you.
Listen to me.
Okay, put the gun down, now.
He didn't tell you?
Right before he picked you up
for this little love jaunt,
he proposed to me,
and then he tried to murder me.
Because you were gonna kill her.
And you think
you can change that?
You were always weak,
right from the beginning
I could tell
that you didn't have it in you
to go all the way but...
I never imagined
that you'd be tempted so easily.
Think about it,
okay, you kill me,
and you don't see a penny
of that money, right?
You think that I still care
about the money.
I stopped caring about that
the moment you left me for dead.
Now this is personal,
in fact...
you could say
that it's about love.
I wanna know
which one of us you love.
Is it me
or her?
- Look, she loves me...
- No, Brent.
I hate you.
Now, it's your turn.
Please, no.
isn't this a nice,
unexpected twist.
Stop it, don't touch her!
Shut up!
- Cameron, my daughter!
- Mom.
Brent! Brent!
Brent, baby, please,
please, look at me.
Stay with me, stay with me,
stay with me, Brent.
I love you.
Never forget that.
Oh, who was that?
- No one important.
- Are you sure?
Two department store contracts
closing soon.
They might be able to use you.
Yeah. Well,
they're gonna have to
do better than this.
Besides, we have
very important business
to tend to.
Hmm, like drinking
these delicious cocktails?
Yes. And I noticed
that very cute cabana boy
over there making eyes at you.
Uh. No. No. No. No.
No, thank you.
I have sworn off
of handsome strangers
- from now on.
- Oh, yeah.
my perfect traveling partner
has been here all along.
Cheers, Mama.
