I Wont Let You Go (2022) Movie Script

lovers in sadness
lovers in pain
lovers in mystique
lovers through changes
you, my love,
there ain't but
a sad, sad dream, love
don't you spare me
don't you dare, babe
maybe if you let me
love you
maybe if you let
you love me
you'll see your ways
love like a wild seed
drowned in the rain...
It doesn't matter that he
had a toupee or whatever!
That was... that was all Janie.
I'm telling you!
Oh god, Angie.
You're too funny.
What? Okay, that's what it
looked like.
Oh, I believe you.
She just doesn't have the guts
to say it out loud.
- Hey!
- What you mean
- is Sam has tact.
- Thank you.
But I'm sorry, toupees are
always a mistake.
Hey, we spend all week
being tactful.
What's a little tactlessness
between friends?
Which is precisely why we need
to make this happen more often.
- Mmm-hmm.
- I'm sick of a month going by
- without seeing you two.
- I always see you at work.
That doesn't count!
I don't get a minute alone
with you at work.
We barely get a minute alone
with her at all.
I don't remember the last time
we got to see you without Keith.
You've been married, what,
almost a year?
At what point do you stop
being inseparable?
Seriously, Angie, I mean,
it's getting to a point where
I feel like I have to pry you
two off each other.
Oh, please,
we're married, okay.
We like to spend
time together.
Uh, don't take this
the wrong way,
but there was something that we
wanted to talk to you about.
Right, Janie?
I still don't think this is
that big a deal.
I spend all my time
with my family.
You have a kid, it's different.
Would somebody just clue me in
on what you...
You two are talking about?
It's just Keith.
You're with him 24/7.
Well, we're married
and we work together.
I mean, are you suggesting
I quit my job?
Or get a divorce?
No. Look, we miss you,
and that's it.
And we know that Keith is
and you two are crazy in love.
It would be nice if you weren't
constantly canceling on us
- to spend time with him.
- He's a romantic, okay?
He likes to surprise me.
If I have plans with you
and he surprises me with
a couples' massage,
what am I supposed to do?
Does it have to be every
weekend, though?
The second you met him,
it was like,
he completely absorbed you.
He told you he loved you after
the first three dates.
And you didn't even think
it was weird!
And the presents
and the weekend getaways!
There's something wrong
with that?
No, no. Look, we're just getting
a little off track.
No, you know what? It doesn't
matter if he waited
a year to tell me loved me.
You never liked Keith.
- That's not true.
- Mmm.
I just think you two
are moving so fast.
Would you two stop?
This is the first time in a
month that I've gotten to go out
and talk to grown-ups.
If I don't get at least one
conversation this week
that doesn't revolve around
allergen-free school lunches,
and a cartoon about a talking
panda, I'm gonna lose it!
I will.
You're right.
I shouldn't have said anything.
No, I...
I should be making more
of an effort.
See? Was that so hard?
- Yeah, it was a little hard.
- Just come here!
Just come here!
- Can we just go back...
- No, not the toupee!
- Yes! Yes!
- No!
Mmm! Babe?
It's back on.
They just threw the most
incredible pass.
Sadly the guy just...
Come here.
I really thought this was it.
It's only been a couple months.
It's gonna happen.
Yeah, but when?
You know...
Found the guy, found the
The baby is supposed to be next.
I just... I've been waiting to
have a family my whole life.
You have a family.
We could have a baby this year
and next year, or never,
you got me.
I am your family now,
no matter what.
Yeah, it's just, I was so sure.
I've been feeling off all week.
Ah, you're putting too much
pressure on yourself.
If you're stressed and
it's not gonna happen.
Yeah, I know.
Maybe you should take some time
off work?
I know you've been prepping
for this fundraiser,
but maybe after that
you drop down to part time.
- I can't do that.
- Of course you can.
Cherise is a mother,
she'll understand.
Honestly, I think if I don't
have work to distract me,
I'd probably drive myself crazy.
Well, how about I make you
a cup of tea?
With lemon?
Whatever you want.
What did I do to deserve you?
I was just wondering
the same thing.
You've gotta be patient, babe.
It's gonna happen.
Mm-hm. I know.
Now that's my girl.
I bought make-up coffee.
You didn't have to do that,
we weren't actually fighting.
It's your marriage.
I never meant to overstep.
- Thanks.
- You're welcome.
Is that hazelnut?
I thought it was the most
apologetic flavour.
I think it's working!
Because if I had to sit
through this meeting
thinking you
were mad at me...
I was never mad at you, Oaky?
I just don't want you to think
that I got married
and I don't need you
in my life anymore,
'cause that's definitely
not true.
- Good.
- Besides,
I'm pretty sure this meeting is
going to be bad enough as it is.
- Is that right?
- Oh yeah.
The lady leading it has no idea
what she's doing.
I also, uh,
I took a pregnancy test
a few days ago.
My period's been late and I
really thought...
But I was wrong.
Oh, ang. I'm so sorry.
Hey, at least I still have
caffeine to console me.
Well, you never know.
I had a friend that tested
negative and took another test
three days later,
and it was positive.
- Really?
- Yeah.
Something about the chemicals
needing time to build up.
So you never know, it might be
worth trying again.
Yeah. Thanks.
No problem.
There you are.
First time leading a meeting.
You ready?
I think so.
Don't be nervous,
you're gonna be great.
You got this.
So those are the broad strokes.
If my projections are correct,
then this event will mean
that we will reach our
fundraising foal for the year
two months early.
That was great!
Good job!
- Well done!
- Thanks.
You're a natural public speaker.
My first meeting, I barely got
eight words out between "um's."
I practiced with Keith.
Oh, he's a great one for that.
Very confident public speaker.
Do you need anything else
from me?
I was going to call a few
of the donors.
Um, actually,
I'd like to have a quick chat.
- Do you have some time?
- Oh, uh, sure.
Is everything okay?
Sorry, I didn't mean
to worry you.
I just wanted to have
this conversation
- without anyone around.
- Uh, what conversation?
I want to make sure that I'm not
putting too much on you.
No! No, you're not,
I'm excited for this project.
You don't need to be
a super woman.
I promise you, your career
will be here for you
even if it isn't your number one
priority right now.
Where is this coming from?
Sorry, I thought you knew.
Keith came to talk to me
this morning.
Uh... no. What?
He said that you were worried
that the stress of work
was interfering with your
- He said that to you?
- And honestly,
I'm a mom.
You know what they say.
You don't lay on your deathbed
and think,
"I should have spent more time
at work."
If being a mom
is important to you
and this job is getting
in the way...
I completely understand.
I really appreciate that,
and I might take you up on that
offer once I do have kids,
but until then, I'm doing fine.
I mean, I love my work, and Im
excited for this project.
I'm so sorry if Keith gave you
the wrong impression.
All right, then.
Let me know if you change
your mind.
- Thanks.
- And Angela?
I really hope this happens
for you.
I think you're gonna be
a great mom.
- Keith.
- Hey, sweetheart.
I'm sorry I missed your
- I heard it was fantastic.
- Uh, can we talk?
Uh, is something wrong?
What happened?
- Are you serious?
- Am I...?
What's wrong? What happened?
- Cherise talked to me.
- What'd she say?
Is she going to let you cut back
on hours?
She said you went
and talked to her about me.
Right. About you
slowing down at work.
Like we were talking about
I said I didn't want to do that!
Oh, I didn't tell her you were
definitely doing it, I was...
I was just feeling her out,
seeing if that might be an
This is my career!
If I need a break,
then I need to be the one to
have that conversation with her.
I've been with the company
I thought she might react better
if she heard it from me.
Cherise is never going to take
me seriously
if you're fighting my battles
for me.
I didn't want you to be too
intimidated to speak to her.
I'm your husband, it's my job
to protect you, you can't expect
me to stand by!
Okay, yes, I can.
You're being extremely
condescending right now.
- Condescending? How am I...
- You know what?
I... I can't even talk
about this.
I'm gonna get back to work.
Angie, are you...
Hey, um, when I need you to
protect me,
I'll let you know.
Okay. Wow.
Listen, about earlier.
- It's fine.
- No.
It's not fine.
I was just trying to
take care of you,
and I'm sorry that you feel like
what I did was disrespectful.
I did not mean to be
Well, thank you for saying that.
Growing up, my dad was,
like, Superman.
I mean, anything
my mom and I wanted,
he was right there,
didn't have to ask.
That's why he bought us
the house.
That's his way of showing love,
and I always swore that when I
had a family of my own.
I was going to be that guy
for my wife.
- I mean, my mom...
- I am not your mom.
Okay, listen.
I know... I know this is coming
from a good place. But...
I'm happy with us just being
normal people, okay?
You don't have to be a superhero
for me, babe.
Yeah, maybe it's just
old fashioned.
I know that you are a smart,
capable, strong woman,
and I'm sorry that I made you
feel like you weren't.
I have to learn how to balance
work and a home life.
And I just think I should
start figuring out how to do
that now.
Yeah, I can understand that.
Okay, how about a compromise.
When we're at work,
I promise not to overstep.
When we're at home...
Let me treat you like the queen
that you are.
I think I can handle that.
All right.
Oh, baby?
- Angie?
- Okay.
On your way back,
can you grab me a beer?
It finally happened!
Oh! Whoa!
We're gonna have a baby!
Oh, I told you!
I told you! I told you!
I told you!
I told you it was going to
I want to wait.
I want to tell everyone
- Okay.
- Okay?
Of course. Of course, baby.
She's gonna cancel again.
- I don't think so.
- She will.
- Should we eat? I...
- There she is!
- She lives!
- Sorry!
I know it's been forever.
It's this event I'm planning.
It's only 50 people,
but they are some of the
wealthiest and most successful
business professionals in all
of Minneapolis.
- So...
- And how long do you have?
Just a few weeks.
And then you can take a break,
Here's hoping.
Well, then I think
we should celebrate.
- Yes!
- Two weeks early?
Celebrate that you managed to
get away from work and Keith
for the day to hang out.
Plus, if I'm being honest,
I've been craving a mimosa
all week.
Ooh, yes, please.
Angie, you with us?
I think I'll have to pass.
What? Come on!
Have a little fun.
You've earned it.
Uh, Samantha?
I think that Angie might have
a really good reason
for not drinking.
Wait! Really?!
Yes, yes, yes, but I haven't
told anybody yet.
- Oh my god, Angie!
- This is amazing!
- This is amazing!
- Oh my god!
- I know, I know.
- Okay, so no mimosas.
But we're definitely
But seriously,
I haven't told anybody yet,
and I don't want to tell anyone
at work especially.
I just... I want a chance to
tell Cherise myself.
My lips are sealed.
It just...
It kinda feels like
everything is starting,
you know?
Like, I've always dreamed of
having this perfect life
with a perfect family, and,
well, it's all happening.
- Oh, Angie...
- Great!
I can't wait!
Another baby?!
No, no, no!
No! Please help!
Help! Somebody, help!
Help me!
Oh, I was just starting to worry
about you.
Hey, sorry.
It took a while
to get caught up.
- Have a good time?
- Yeah.
Hey, uh...
I didn't mean to tell them,
but they figured out
I'm pregnant.
They just accidentally
found out?
They, what, read your mind?
No, they ordered mimosas,
and the second I said I didn't
want any, they figured it out.
And you couldn't, what, lie?
Say you weren't in the mood?
You know what a bad liar I am.
They knew as soon as they
saw my face.
Okay. Well, I guess we can't
take it back now.
Well, you know what?
Maybe this is a good thing.
You know, 'cause then we can
tell your family,
and then we can tell
everyone at work.
Yeah, I guess we have to.
Okay, great, so why don't we
call your parents,
and then I will post something
on social media.
Everyone's gonna be
so happy for us.
Whatever you want.
Everyone's gonna be
so happy
happy, happy
This one's from Dylan.
Pretty sure that's everyone
at work.
What did he say?
"Congratulations, you're going
to be amazing parents."
That's sweet.
Feels like the whole
office is having a baby.
I mean, I've already gotten
10 offers to babysit,
and we're not even going
to have this baby
for another six months.
Huh. Who's that one from?
- An old friend from college.
- Which one?
Didn't you and Tyler
used to date?
Like a million
years ago.
He actually used to be my first
serious boyfriend.
But you're still friends?
Well, not real life friends.
I mean, we haven't talked in
about five years.
But he follows you
on social media.
Well, sure, I mean, just to keep
up with each other's lives.
Don't you find that a little,
uh, strange?
I mean, to be in contact
with somebody
after you break up?
Well, it's not like
we're talking,
- it's just social media.
- I mean, still,
don't you think you should
block him?
What, block? No, babe.
He just congratulated us,
he hasn't done anything wrong.
He's married, too.
All right.
If you're comfortable with it.
Well, it's no big deal.
Look, he's happy for us.
Yeah, I believe you.
Sam, she's gonna throw me a baby
shower at work.
That's nice of her.
That looks good.
- Here you are.
- Thank you.
Who are you talking to?
She's just coming up with ideas
for the baby shower.
Well, that will be fun.
Keith! Keith! Help!
Help, Keith! Keith!
Keith, help!
Keith, help!
- Keith!
- Hey!
Angie? Angie, he's gone.
Hey, baby.
It's okay.
So you did
no, I didn't see his face
at all.
Yeah, he bolted as soon as
he heard me coming.
- I only saw his back.
- Lane?
Yeah, looks like it was
a burglary attempt.
- Do you keep your doors locked?
- Usually.
I... I must have forgotten.
It's a mistake,
it won't happen again.
We'll call if we get any leads.
Honestly, this kind of thing is
hard to investigate
unless they're dumb enough
to try again.
Just keep your doors locked,
keep a light on downstairs
just in case, and you might want
to consider getting a dog.
Yeah, we will.
Thank you, officer.
Detective McCoy.
Uh, thank you, detective McCoy.
Sorry we couldn't do more.
Try and get some rest.
Thank you so much.
My wife and I can't
thank you enough.
We really appreciate
all your help.
You know, you have
a lot windows in here.
You might want to invest in
getting a security system.
Of course, great idea.
- Have a good night.
- Good night.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Hey, it's okay.
- No, no it's not, Keith, okay?
Somebody was in our house, okay?
What if... what if you
hadn't been here?
I will always be here.
Yeah, but what if someone...
What if something happened
to the baby?
I swear to you,
nothing will ever happen
to this baby.
Trust me?
- Yeah.
- Okay.
Yeah, okay.
Ah, it's been a long night.
How about you take the day off
from work, huh?
- Okay.
- Okay?
Let's get you up to bed.
- Yeah, okay.
- Okay.
Here we go.
- I'm sorry to make you wait.
- Oh, no worries.
I ordered us some appetizers
My doctor wants me to eat more.
Good! You're eating for two now.
Oh, so, uh, what happened?
You had a break-in
about a week ago?
Yeah, apparently some guy
was trying doors
and we forgot to lock ours.
- That's terrifying.
- Mm-hm.
Yeah, I was totally freaked out.
I was a complete mess
the next day.
Yeah, I would be too.
How are you doing now?
Better, yeah, I'm not jumping at
every little sound, so...
Aww, Angie.
I bet you were happy
that Keith was there.
Um, it's just...
He's been bugging me to
slow down at work,
and he wants me to quit
the donor dinner.
- What?
- Yeah.
He says it's too much stress.
- Is it?
- No!
No, I'm not just a baby
Incubator, okay?
- I'm still a person.
- I know that, I know.
But you're a person who just
went through something traumatic
and you're pregnant.
And if you wanted to just chill
for a while, you're allowed to.
Yeah, but I...
This is my project, you know?
I want to finish it,
I need to finish it.
Thank you.
Well then,
just explain that to Keith.
I'm sure he'll understand.
Isn't that him apologizing?
Oh, no.
Well, who is it?
It's, uh, Tyler.
You know, the guy I dated
back in college.
- Seriously?
- Yeah.
We've just been catching up, he
just messaged me.
That's all it is.
Uh, so you, what,
started chatting with your ex
while you're pregnant
with your husband's baby?
Your ex, who, might I add,
pined for you for like a year
after you broke up with him.
No, no, no, it's not...
It's not like that.
Um, he just saw my pregnancy
announcement online.
And he reached out to
congratulate me.
We dated forever ago,
it's in the past.
Mm-hm. Does Keith know
about this?
No, because you know how jealous
Keith gets.
Okay, does Tyler's wife
know about this?
- They're separated.
- Angie!
- What?
- There's no way
you don't see how this
can go wrong!
Okay, I know, but just...
- Oh my...
- Tyler lives 500 miles away.
Okay, it's not romantic and it
never will be, but...
It's just nice, you know,
to talk to someone who listens.
If Keith finds out,
he's gonna freak.
And I wouldn't blame him.
How is he supposed to know
there's nothing else
going on between you two?
No, I know.
I know you're right.
Just please promise you'll work
on things with Keith.
You have to trust each other
if you want to raise this baby
and you can't start off
keeping secrets like that.
Yeah, you're right.
No, no, no, that was just, like,
a regular Tuesday lecture.
But I'm sorry, back to Ellen
marrying Donnie Dartman,
okay, didn't they hate
each other?
According to them, they were
flirting the whole time.
No way, that's not what was
happening, but sure.
That's what he said.
So how are you and Keith?
- Better, I think.
- Yeah?
I mean, we haven't had
any more fights,
you know, in the last two days.
I mean, fighting isn't all bad.
If you suddenly stop fighting,
that's when you should worry.
Hmm, is that what happened with
you and Brenna?
Todd from the gym who can bench
250 is what happened
- to me and Brenna.
- Oh...
- I'm sorry.
- It's all right.
Or it's not, but you know,
it will be.
But listen, I do think fighting
can be a good thing.
- How is that?
- Well, because it means
you're expressing
your feelings to him.
You're being assertive,
and by the sounds of it,
you could stand to do a little
bit more of that, if you ask me.
Well, I just... I want to keep
my career while being a mom.
- You know?
- Yeah.
Well, keep standing your ground
and I'm sure he'll come around.
Well, I'm just glad that I have
you to talk me through it.
Right, yeah, I'm your cautionary
tale, right?
I'm what you go to,
to tell you what not to do
to keep your marriage going.
Uh, well, I...
My lunch is almost up,
so I should get going.
Okay, let me know how the
fundraiser goes.
Will do. Talk soon.
Hey. There you are.
Oh, I thought you had a meeting.
Yeah, got out early.
Did you go get something to eat?
I was in the car, I just needed
a minute to myself.
You were eating alone
in the car?
Should have told me,
I would have loved an excuse
- to slip out.
- I'll tell you next time.
But honestly, the quiet was
exactly what I needed.
Oh, sorry, looks like
I'm putting out another fire.
As usual.
I'll leave you to it.
I was thinking of making
us a reservation
at Elliott's tonight.
Oh, what's the occasion?
A nice dinner before your big
day tomorrow.
I thought you could use
some pampering.
- Sounds good.
- I can't find my phone.
Did you see it in the car?
- No, maybe you left it at home.
- No, I had it this morning.
Here, make the reservation
on mine.
- I'll bring it right back.
- Okay.
Mmm, okay, one more.
One more.
- Mmm.
- This was amazing.
You deserve it, you have been
working so hard.
Is it weird to say that
I'm nervous?
Nervous? About what?
Knowing that I have to stand
in front of all those people.
Oh, just be yourself.
They're gonna love you.
Besides, what a note
to go out on.
Everyone is going to know what
you've done for this company.
You... you're gonna leave
a legacy.
I don't think everyone
is just going to forget me
after a few months.
I mean, it's maternity leave.
It's not forever.
I thought you said you were
going to take your time.
Right, I'm not going to set
a return date.
But I am going to come back.
Yeah, I didn't know you already
made that decision.
- I thought you knew.
- I thought...
You were thinking maybe
somewhere down the line.
Maybe when the baby
is old enough for school.
I don't know what to say.
I love my job.
So you would send an infant
to daycare.
You're welcome to quit your job
and stay home.
I've been there for a decade,
I run a whole branch of
the company.
And I want a chance to have
a career, too.
I cannot believe you would
spring this on me.
I'm not springing
anything on you.
I've been saying this all along,
if you would just listen.
Wait, so I'm wrong because
I don't want to pass my baby off
to a stranger for 40 hours
a week?
- Please...
- What are you doing?
You're making a scene,
so if...
Did Tyler put you up to this?
I know you've been talking
to him.
I saw it on your phone.
It's not like that, okay?
We're just friends.
Oh, yeah. Yeah.
I'm sure friendship is all
he's looking for.
That's why you kept it from me.
This is exactly why I didn't
tell you,
because I knew this is how
you would re...
- Yeah, whatever.
- How you would react.
Oh my gosh.
- Come on, we're leaving.
- No, I'm staying right here.
- I'm gonna take a cab.
- Angie.
No, okay? You need to calm down.
We can talk about this later.
I know.
He sounded so angry.
Listen, he'll calm down.
You just have to talk it
Yeah, but what if he doesn't
come around?
He really wants me to stay home.
Yeah, well,
it's not his choice.
Plenty of women go back to work
when they have a baby.
- What decade is he living in?
- Yeah, he just...
He has all these ideas of what
mothers are supposed to be.
And I know a lot of women want
that, and that's great,
but it's just not me.
Yeah, well,
if he's so against daycare,
he can spend the money
on a nanny.
I promise, you're not the one
being unreasonable here.
- Thanks for talking to me.
- Of course.
I love talking to you.
Uh, well, I should get home.
I've gotta face the music
sometime, right?
Well, it will be okay.
Just call me if you need
anything, okay?
Yeah, bye.
- Hey.
- I was worried.
I know I'm not allowed to be
worried about you,
but this is ridiculous.
It's not that you're not allowed
to worry about me,
it's just that when you do it
so much all the time,
it makes me feel like
I'm suffocated.
Right, right.
Babe, we can't keep having
the same conversation
over and over again.
I can't just magically
turn my brain off.
I'm a protector,
that is what I do.
Yeah, but this stuff, I mean,
work, pregnancy, baby,
there is nothing
to protect me from.
There is no danger.
Everything is fine.
- What about the break-in?
- That was obviously different.
You're trying to lump
everything together.
- That was different.
- What about Tyler?
What about Tyler?
You honestly expect me
to believe
there's nothing
to be worried about here?
Okay, yes, I...
I should have told you
that we were in touch,
but no, there is nothing
to worry about.
Why are you talking to him?!
Because I needed a friend,
Okay?! I needed to vent.
I couldn't have...
I didn't want to do it to Janie
and Sam or anybody
that knew you, because I thought
it wasn't fair to you, okay?
But I'm sorry, okay?
I shouldn't have called him.
I shouldn't have done that.
Yeah, I believe you.
I believe you, I believe you
when you say that there is
nothing romantic going on there.
- I really do.
- Oh, thank you.
But you have to understand,
this isn't just about you?
I mean, what happens
when he gets it in his head
that he wants to get back
together with you?
Oh my god, that is not
going to happen.
You don't know that,
people do crazy things.
Not everything is something
to be scared of.
He was in love with you, right?
When you were dating?
That was a long time ago.
Those feelings do not
just go away.
If you broke up with him
and he was in love with you,
- maybe he still is.
- We're just friends, okay?
That's it. But...
I understand if that makes you
feel uncomfortable.
Just promise me,
the next time that we
have an issue,
you're going to come to me
and not some stranger.
- He's not a stranger.
- Oh.
Okay, you know what? Look.
I will cut off contact
with him, okay?
If that is what you want.
I will do that.
"I appreciate us catching up,
"but I think it's best if
we stop talking.
"I hope you understand."
Sent, done.
Can we just please
go to bed now?
Yeah, of course.
Okay, okay.
Okay, okay.
Easy. I love you, baby.
Come on, baby. Please.
no, he said he can't stop
thinking about me,
but trust me,
the subtext was there.
I think it's going to be okay.
No, it's not.
Ugh, this is all my fault.
You had no way of knowing.
You thought he was just being
a good friend.
Yeah, but everyone told me
that it was a bad idea
to talk to him
and I ignored them.
And Keith warned me that Tyler
was just going to
take things too far.
Okay. So you lay down the law.
You tell him you don't feel the
same and he needs to back off.
- I did.
- Then that's all you can do.
Yeah, I just...
I can't believe I was so stupid.
Hey, you're not stupid.
He doesn't live nearby.
You're never gonna run into him,
so just block him,
and put this whole thing
behind you.
Yeah, I know you're right.
What did Keith say when
you told him?
You did tell him, right?
No, I've just been waiting
for the right time.
I was thinking maybe after
the banquet.
Angie, you have to tell him!
I know, I know.
The worst thing you can do
is keep this a secret,
because if he sees the email
or finds out somehow,
he's gonna think
you were hiding it again
and everything will be worse.
Yeah. Yeah.
I'll tell him tonight.
- Good.
- Good.
Oh, thank you! Really?
Thank you.
I appreciate it.
This is amazing.
It looks like they're having
a great time.
Honestly, I didn't think
they'd all show up,
- so I'd better not disappoint.
- I'm sure you won't.
Are you ready for me to
introduce you?
Actually, I'd really like Keith
to get here first.
My god! Are these for me?
- Speaking of Keith.
- Looks like he went all out.
I'm gonna go mingle,
I'm gonna hop up front
- when Keith gets here.
- Sounds good, thank you.
- All right.
- Thanks.
If it isn't the woman
of the hour.
- Wow.
- Yeah.
Uh, did Cherise give you these?
What? No, I thought you did.
- Uh, there's a note.
- Oh.
Who are they from?
Hey, uh, there's something...
- I need to talk to you about.
- Angie, oh my gosh!
- This is incredible!
- Hi!
- You're killing it.
- Thank you. Thank you so much.
- Oh my gosh, everything okay?
- Yeah, yeah.
Just a little nervous.
I can only imagine.
Great work.
- I 'm so proud of you!
- Thank you.
- Keith.
- Hi.
- Go get your seat.
- Thank you.
- So, listen.
- Talk to me about what?
- I was gonna talk to you...
- Thank you, everyone,
for joining us tonight
to fight food insecurity
in our community.
- Explain what?
- Okay, uh,
I'm gonna talk to you about it
after the banquet, okay?
I've just been trying to find
the right time.
...And architect of
tonight's event,
Angela west.
- Tell me what?
- Take this.
I will explain
as soon as I get back okay?
I will. Okay?
Thank you, Cherise,
for that kind introduction,
and thank
you for joining us tonight.
This year, 10% of households
have to wonder where
their next meal is coming from.
Imagine being a child
who is dreading the weekend
because it means not getting
your one hot meal a day.
Or imagine being a mother
who has to forgo her own meal
so that she can feed
her children.
But tonight,
we choose to stand up
for those families.
So thank you!
Let's have a great night!
I don't think Tyler
was there tonight.
I didn't see him.
I just, I can't believe
he did that.
I mean, he always seemed
so normal.
This was exactly what
I was trying to explain to you.
You just... you can't tell
with some people.
Yeah, I guess not.
It's just... why would he
want me to think
that he was there?
I mean, that's so creepy.
Hey, I'm sorry.
Ah, it was... it's okay.
No, no, no, it's not okay.
Baby, you warned me that
he would read too much into it
and he did, and he just ended up
ruining the dinner.
No, he didn't ruin anything.
That dinner was beautiful,
and you raised so much money
for the organization.
Yeah, but I shouldn't
have let him.
No, you... you didn't let him
do anything.
You just... you saw the best
in him, that's all.
That's one of the things
I love about you.
You always see the best
in people.
You're just...
You were just wrong this time.
Yeah, but you weren't.
You told me this is what was
going to happen
and I didn't listen.
I should have listened to you.
Well, how about
you keep being the optimist
that you are,
and I will always be there
to step in and keep you safe.
- I like that plan.
- Good, I like it too.
You know what?
Hopefully it just doesn't
happen again,
because I told him that I'm not
talking to him anymore,
and I blocked his number,
and I think once I don't respond
to the flowers,
- then he'll stop.
- Yeah.
There's that optimism.
Okay, okay. Okay.
Where do we put this?
Where... what do I do?
Okay. Okay, baby.
Okay, okay, okay.
Have you seen these
Dinosaur feet.
Dinosaur feet!
You're making me want
another one.
I just...
Three months and she'll be here,
and I'll get to dress her up
in everything.
Did you say "her"?
Did I?
I'm pretty sure you did.
Is there something you want
to tell me?
Okay, yes.
I got an ultrasound
a couple weeks ago, it's a girl.
Oh, a little girl?!
Oh my...
Oh, I'm so excited.
I mean, obviously,
I would have been excited either
way, but I mean, she just...
She feels so much more real now,
you know?
I feel like I can picture her
and her little feet,
her little hands,
and little squishy face,
and just... ah, anyways.
With who her parents are,
she is going to be gorgeous.
And I plan to buy her
a full wardrobe.
Aw, I know auntie Janie would.
- Oh, uh, one thing.
- What?
Just please don't tell anyone.
And definitely don't post
on social media.
We're just, um, trying to keep
everything private, you know?
- So that's still happening?
- Yeah, well...
It's slowed down.
I only got one text last week.
Still, that's messed up.
And there's no way for you
to block him?
No, he uses a different number
every time.
It must be a computer program
or something,
'cause I doubt he's just buying
brand new phones.
And he still claims
to be in love with you?
That's what he says.
Honestly, at this point,
I think he's delusional.
It's really, really
creeping me out.
I'm really sorry
you're going through this.
Yeah, thanks.
I just... I wish it would stop.
I'm home!
How was your morning?
This arrived an hour ago.
There's no address.
Must have delivered it himself.
Can I help you?
Yes, we're looking to report
a crime.
- What type of crime?
- Uh, someone's stalking me.
I'm sorry to hear that.
Uh, is detective McCoy
working today?
We talked to her before.
- Yeah, uh, Layla?
- Yeah?
These folks need to
speak with you.
Oh, hey. Come on back.
It's okay.
So what happened?
Was it another break-in?
Well, um,
my ex is stalking me.
All right.
What is he doing exactly?
Well, he won't leave me alone,
he texts me constantly.
- Do you have the texts?
- No, I keep deleting them.
Is it just the texting?
I think he might be
following me,
because he sent a picture of
myself at an event
that he shouldn't have been able
to get into.
Are you sure he took the
pictures himself?
Is it possible someone else
shared it to social media?
I... I guess it's possible.
But he dropped off a package
at my house.
- What kind of package?
- A Teddy bear.
Why a Teddy bear?
Well, I'm pregnant,
and it was a pink
"it's a girl" bear.
No one knows
we're having a girl.
He must have found out through
the doctor or something.
I may have told my friend Janie.
What? I can't believe
you would do that.
I mean, it was probably her.
No, it wasn't! It wasn't her.
How else would he have
found out?
Because it was today, I mean,
it couldn't have been
more than an hour
until the package arrived.
There's no way she could have
told him fast enough
for him to buy a bear and drop
it off at the house
before I get home.
That does sound pretty unlikely,
but still,
it's not a crime to mail
a present.
He didn't mail it,
there was no postage on the box.
He must have dropped it off
Does he live nearby?
No, we dated back in college,
he lives in Michigan.
Has he threatened you?
No, but he keeps telling me
he's in love with me,
and that we belong together,
we're supposed to be together.
- I mean...
- Look, I sympathize,
I really do. I'm sure this is
a stressful situation,
but as of right now, you do not
qualify for a restraining order,
let alone to press charges.
So there's nothing you can do?
Start keeping everything, right?
Every text, every email.
This is all evidence now.
If he starts to escalate
or you actually see him,
- please give me a call.
- Yeah.
Thanks for all your help.
Wait, so we actually have to
wait until he does something?
As of right now, I don't believe
he's committed a crime.
Yeah, but isn't it,
I don't know, part of your job
to prevent crimes before
they happen?
I understand you're scared.
I wish there was more
I could do.
Okay, she can't help us.
Let's go.
I told you they weren't
gonna help.
Yeah, I can't believe that.
Those people are absolutely
It's just like after
the break-in.
A lot of sympathy,
but sorry, nothing we can do.
Yeah, I really thought she would
do something, you know?
A restraining order at least,
Yeah, it doesn't matter.
We won't bother next time.
If the police can't protect you,
I will.
I will make sure you
are as safe
as it's possible
for a person to be.
Security system, cameras,
Just trust me, okay?
This is a prepaid phone.
Only I have the number.
That way he'll stop
bothering you.
Uh, but I have to be able to
call other people.
Hey, well, keep the list as
small as possible.
I just... I hate the idea that
he could be watching me
- at any time.
- Hey, hey.
We're gonna figure this out,
Make sure you don't keep
the same schedule every day.
I'm gonna be with you
as much as I possibly can.
It's okay, baby. It's okay.
- The lunch salads, maybe?
- I'm into that.
- Yeah.
- We should order for the table
- and then we'll see.
- Yeah.
- Hey!
- Hey.
It's so good to see you.
We miss you around the office.
What? Oh, I miss you guys, too.
How's everything going with...
You know.
- Uh, nothing lately.
- That's great.
How is everything with you guys?
- Good.
- Yeah, pretty good.
Ryan actually got some
good news at work.
- Nice.
- Oh.
Who is that?
I don't know,
nobody has this number.
Maybe you should just
turn it off.
Yeah, yeah.
Uh, sorry, what's...
What's going on with Ryan?
- He got a promotion.
- Nice!
I'm so proud of him.
Wow, that's incredible!
I know how hard he's worked.
He's been working
so hard for months,
- I'm just so excited.
- Good for him!
- I can't wait.
- That's great news.
- What's wrong?
- I don't see anyone there.
- Is it Tyler?
- I have to go, I'm sorry.
Hey, hey, take a breath.
Tell us what happened.
Yeah, we can help you!
Keith is coming to get me, okay?
I will call you later.
- Angie!
- Angie!
I promise I will call you...
Oh, sorry.
Text me when
you get home!
Hey, you've reached Keith west.
Please leave a message.
Please just leave me alone,
I don't want to talk to you,
don't you get that?!
Hey! Hey! Leave her alone!
Look, man, she dropped her keys.
I was just trying to
give them back.
I'm sorry, I-I-I thought you
were someone else.
I was just trying to do
something nice.
Thank you.
Your girl is paranoid, man.
Hey, what's going on?
What happened?
It was Tyler,
he was in the restaurant.
- You saw him?
- No!
But he knew what I was wearing,
and then this guys started
chasing me, and then I thought...
Oh, you must have been
so scared.
Babe, babe.
Yeah, it was a misunderstanding,
but I was so sure
- that it was him!
- It's okay, I'm here.
You're safe now, babe.
How did he even get my number?
I don't know.
I didn't give my number
to anybody.
Okay, we'll go straight home.
No, no, no, I want to go to
the police station.
I need to talk to
that officer again.
- Are you sure?
- Yes, because he texted me,
and she can read it herself now.
She's going to have to take me
seriously this time.
I think this is enough to get
you a restraining order,
at least.
Now it might take some time
to track him down,
but it sounds like he's in town
if he's been following you.
Send me all the information
you have on him.
I'll call you once
we locate him.
How long will that take?
Well, I'll get started on this
right now.
Hopefully he's staying
some place under his own name,
but if he doesn't want
to be found,
- it might take a while.
- Thank you so much.
My wife and I
really appreciate it.
It's my pleasure.
I'm just sorry you're going
through this.
Yeah. Well, thank you,
- You guys take care.
- Thank you.
- That was good.
- Yeah.
You feel up for some dinner?
Honestly, I'm pretty tired.
I could imagine,
you had a hard day.
Yeah, I'm just so happy
the police are handling it,
you know?
This will soon be over.
I don't want you to get
your hopes up.
Detective McCoy said it may
take some time
before they track him down.
Will you just let me be
optimistic for one night please?
You're right, didn't mean
to bring you down.
I know. But hey,
as soon as they catch him,
then you don't have to spend
every waking minute
looking after me.
Wouldn't that be nice?
I don't mind looking after you.
It's my favourite thing
in the world.
I just feel like this day
is finally catching up to me.
Well, how about you go relax and
I go make us some dinner?
- Hmm?
- Okay.
Are you sure you don't need
any help?
Nope, call you
when it's ready.
Thank you.
Nothing looks different,
he didn't take anything?
No, I don't think so.
It doesn't look like he forced
his way in.
Wait, do you think that he was
here when we got home?
He was probably here when you
came to see me at the station.
No, no! I don't want
to picture him in our house.
Do we have to do this right now?
My wife is tired and upset.
I understand,
and we are doing everything
we can to find Mr. Watson.
But according to his office,
he's out of the country.
Now obviously
he could have lied,
but while we sort that out,
I just think it's best
if you get out of this house.
Do you have family
that you can stay with?
Do you have anyone in town?
No, but, um, we could to
a friend...
We'll go to a hotel.
All right, just call me
with the information
- once you get settled.
- Can't thank you enough.
I won't let him get away
with this, okay?
Thank you.
Thank you.
- We found him.
- Who?
- Tyler Watson?
- Yes, ma'am.
Well, that was quick.
All right, let's go pick him up.
- No can do.
- Why not?
Well, it's like his office said.
He's out of the country.
And you verified that?
I just got off the phone
with us customs.
He entered Spain two weeks ago
and hasn't left.
No way he's the one breaking
into their house.
I guess the guy could be
cyber stalking her,
and, I don't know, is paying
someone to deliver the packages
and what not, but...
No, that doesn't sound likely,
does it?
I also spoke to Tyler.
He told me he got a text
a couple of months ago
from Angela west, telling him
she didn't want to talk anymore,
and he hasn't bothered
her since.
So somebody is lying.
They didn't call you, right?
They never told us where they
were staying tonight.
No, nothing.
Well, when we find out
where they're at,
I will stop by and see if I can
get to the bottom of this.
Meanwhile, we need to start
figuring out
where those texts and emails
are coming from.
Someone has been sending them,
and if it wasn't Tyler Watson,
then we need to figure out who.
Hey there, sleepyhead.
Perfect timing, we're here.
- I don't feel so good.
- Oh, that will pass.
Wait, what do you mean?
Oh, don't be angry, but I gave
you a little something
to help you sleep last night.
Uh, don't worry,
it was entirely non-toxic.
I would never do anything
to endanger the baby.
- Wait, what?
- You were exhausted,
but you were too worked up.
I wanted to make sure you didn't
get too stressed
that something happened
to the baby.
I don't understand.
Where are we?
This is your surprise.
Hey, I got you. I got you.
What, you...
What is this place?
Some place safe.
You rented it last night, or...?
I bought it.
Two months ago!
I've been getting it ready
for us.
- But why? I don't...
- Because of Tyler.
Because he wouldn't
leave you alone.
Now I was hoping we wouldn't
need to use it like this,
I figured it could be
a vacation home.
Wait, you... you bought a house
without telling me?
It's a surprise.
Besides, I couldn't risk Tyler
overhearing us.
I'm pretty sure he was bugging
the house.
Um... well,
we should tell detective McCoy
where we are.
We don't need anything from her!
Besides, there's no reception
all the way out here.
I don't want to stay here.
Just come in, give it a chance.
No, I... uh, I want to go home.
Hey, hey, hey.
Okay, we can... we can go to
the hotel, like you said.
You think he couldn't find us
in a hotel?
I'm telling you,
if we hadn't left Minneapolis,
he would never leave us alone.
I'm sorry, I don't understand.
I don't... okay, phew.
We can't just walk away
from our lives, Keith.
-I mean, what about our friends?
-Okay, don't you understand?
This is the only way for me
to keep you safe.
There are always going to be
Tylers out there
who want to hurt you.
You think that cop
is going to protect you?
She is just trying
to complicate things.
I am your family.
You're my responsibility.
Oh, come on!
Just take a look.
Give it a chance.
I promise, you're gonna love it.
Hey, any word on that
stalker case?
No, nothing yet.
Oh, wait. Lane?
It traced some of the messages
back to an ip address.
Let's go get a bad guy.
The messages were sent
from inside the Wests' home.
Do you think it was a scam?
A scam for what?
Well, I heard about
this case once
where a woman pretended
to have a stalker
to get her husband's attention.
I always got the sense she
wanted a little less attention
from her husband.
What if it was the opposite?
What if he made her think
she had a stalker
so she'd become more dependent
on him.
So he uses this Tyler guy
as a bogeyman
to keep her afraid.
There never was a stalker,
there was just a controlling
husband who...
Well, he wanted to play Saviour.
She has been scared of a stalker
this whole time,
and now she's alone with him.
It's okay, baby.
It's okay, baby. It's okay.
don't you spare me
don't you dare, babe
maybe if you let me love you
maybe if you let you
love me
you'll see your way
Better, sweetheart?
Don't worry.
I got some of those chips
you like.
I need to go to the hospital.
- Why?
- I'm having the...
- Oh, it's happening?
- Yeah.
Oh my god! Uh...
Please, I need to go to
the hospital.
- Okay, I know it hurts, just...
- Please, please, please.
Baby, just breathe through it,
I need to go to the hospital.
The baby is here.
You don't need to go to
the hospital for this.
Women used to give birth without
the hospital all the time.
What if something goes wrong?
It won't.
And it's not safe there.
What if Tyler finds you there?
He could do something
to hurt the baby.
Yeah, we don't want that.
But can you maybe just
untie me first?
I won't go anywhere, I promise.
I promise, baby.
I won't go anywhere.
And I won't tell...
You just said you wanted to go
to the hospital!
No, no, no, I won't.
I won't, I promise.
I changed my mind.
I changed my mind.
I won't leave, I promise.
I'll stay right here.
I'll stay right here, baby.
Aww, you're scared.
And when you're scared,
you don't think straight, right?
If I untied you and you made
a run for it,
you'd just end up having the
baby on the side of the road.
- Would that be better?
- No.
Mmm, that's my girl.
How about a compromise?
- I will take this off.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.
But I will leave that door
- Oh...
- Is that fair?
- Yeah?
- Thank you.
- Aww.
- Thanks, baby.
Okay, you just stay right there.
Deep breaths.
I will be right back.
- Okay.
- Mmm.
Don't you worry now, sweetie.
I've got everything we'll need
right over here.
I've thought of everything.
It's okay, baby. It's okay.
It's okay, baby.
Bad news. I printed off the list
like you asked.
Everyone who purchased property
in the area
in the last few months.
No Wests at all.
You can check for yourself.
You're right.
It goes straight from Weaver
to Wu.
- Wait.
- What is it?
Right here, there's a Watson
in here.
- So?
- So Tyler Watson.
Keith west posed as him
for months.
He's been buying gifts and
sending emails.
He must have had
the identity already,
so it just made sense.
So you think he bought a house
under the name Tyler Watson?
That's not a house.
It's a cabin.
It's rustic and it's off-grid.
- How far away?
- It's far.
- I'm leaving right now.
- Are you sure?
I mean, it could be a different
Tyler Watson.
There is no time,
and if this is her,
she needs me right now.
- I'm coming with you.
- Good.
We'll call for backup
on the way.
It's okay, baby.
It's okay. It's okay, baby.
Bucket here.
All right, all right.
Okay, you want to move?
Want to walk around?
Okay, here we go. On three.
One, two, three.
There you go. There you go.
Deep breaths, deep breaths.
Here we go.
Just breathe it through,
breathe it through.
How are you going to clean
the baby when she comes out?
We've got the bucket,
and I have some towels.
Mm-hm, but I need to
wash her off,
and I need to wash myself off.
Hey, hey, hey.
We'll worry about that
when the baby's here, okay?
Let's sit you down.
Sit you down.
There you go.
Okay, okay, okay.
What about her shots?
And her birth certificate?
What if she needs to go
to the doctor?
There will be plenty
of time for that,
and I think you'll be surprised.
Raising a kid out here
in all the fresh air,
I don't think she'll be getting
sick too often.
What if when she needs
to go to school?
We're smart people.
I am sure we can teach her
everything she needs to know.
So you're just gonna keep her
here forever?
Just never gonna let her out
of this cabin?
No, no, no, of course not.
She's gonna have the woods
to run and play in.
And as soon as I am sure that
you're not gonna run for it,
you will too.
Aww. Oh, honey.
You're not a prisoner here.
- No.
- I want you to be happy.
You just need to accept that
this is your home now.
- Okay.
- Okay? Okay.
Do you mind if I just get a
glass of water, baby?
Of course,
you're working so hard.
I'm just trying to protect you!
Angie! Angie, open the door!
Angie, open the door!
Come on, baby.
I need you to open the door,
Don't do this.
All this running can't be good
for the baby.
You know I'm gonna find you.
You can't hide from me.
What's the plan, huh?
There's nowhere to go.
Come here!
Let me go!
Let me go!
What are you doing here?
Angela, are you okay?
You are not gonna take
my family!
Keith west, you are under arrest
for unlawful imprisonment
and identity theft.
She is my wife,
and she is having my baby.
They are mine.
Let me go! Let me go!
Step away from her
and put your hands up.
All I ever wanted to do
was to keep her safe.
I'm her husband,
and that is my job!
It's gonna be okay.
It's gonna be all right.
- Okay.
- Okay?
He can't hurt you anymore.
Thank you.
The ambulance is on itS way,
but it's going to take a while
to get here.
Do you think you can make it
to the bedroom at least?
- Yeah?
- Yeah, I can make it.
I can make it.
Good job.
Is there any way you've been
trained how to deliver a baby?
Is it going to scare you
if I say no?
At this point, I don't think
anything is going to scare me.
Yes, you're my sweet girl.
Hi, sweet girl.
Yes, that's my sweet girl.
- Yes, yes...
- Hi!
Oh, your aunties are here
to visit you!
Oh! There's our little cutie!
- Hi, baby!
- Say hi!
Oh, she's starting to look
just like you, Angie.
I know, right?
Oh, oh...
We put a bunch of food
in the fridge,
and we brought a ton of stuff
from people from work.
- Oh my...
- And Cherise,
she bought you a lifetime supply
of bibs.
Oh my gosh,
you guys are so sweet.
- Thank you so much.
- Hi, Layla.
Your auntie Janie came to visit.
Yes! Aw, she's happy to see you.
Oh, I love her name.
- Layla.
- Layla...
Well, I actually named her
after detective McCoy.
I mean, I figured after
everything she did, and I mean,
- she did deliver Layla.
- Wow.
And she's been such a great help
making sure we have
everything we need, so...
So how are you doing?
I can't even wrap my head around
what you've been through.
Oh, here, baby.
I mean, I'm good.
Obviously, I'm still in shock,
but yeah, you know, Im...
I'm good.
- Good.
- Good.
But thank you.
You know, I never liked Keith,
but I still never dreamed
he was capable of all that.
Yeah, I know.
Detective McCoy said that
stalkers, they get so obsessed
that they just stop seeing
the world clearly.
Mmm. Speaking of,
any word on the trial?
He agreed to take the plea.
- Oh, that's so good.
- That is great.
I am so glad you won't have to
go through that,
- the testifying and all.
- I know, me too.
But you know what?
I would have done it.
'Cause I would do anything to
make sure he stays away from us.
- Yeah.
- Oh, baby.
'Cause after all,
I have a family to protect.
She's so sweet! Layla.
Oh, I'm so happy you guys came.
You guys are the best.
Little sweet Layla.
Thank you for bringing
all that food!
Oh, you've got so much
food in the fridge.
Tons, yeah.
- And mimosas.
- Yeah!
And mimosas!
