In Bed with a Killer (2019) Movie Script

So fall, that's
gonna be really nice.
I think, September was
- when we were thinking.
- Yeah, yeah.
- Excuse me.
- Oh, so sorry.
Okay, so rosebuds
for the boutonnieres.
- Right.
- And,
what about your bouquet?
Roses, red ones.
Oh, yeah.
- Definitely.
- She loves roses.
I have something
perfect in mind for you.
Yeah, yep.
How do you like these?
They're perfect.
Great, wonderful.
This would be great for
the men's boutonnieres.
Oh. Yeah, how do I look?
They go with
your smile too.
Yeah, would you guys mind
if I asked you both
something a bit personal?
- Sure.
- Yeah.
How did you know?
How'd we know we were
meant for each other?
I mean, yes, but like
how did you know it was worth
giving up your
dreams for, you know?
Well, that's easy.
It wasn't about
giving up our dreams.
We knew we could
still do them.
Would you excuse me
for just one minute?
So, the turkey thing
is going to be dinner,
you know.
Hey, it's me.
I've made my decision.
I wanna run a couple
things by you.
I'll see you later.
Sorry we're closed!
Oh, hey,
you came to the shop.
So, what I was
saying is, yeah,
I was just really
struggling, you know,
with the idea of
moving in together.
But then I realized
we can be independent
and still live together.
What kind of
people live here I wonder.
Excited to make friends?
Yeah, but I can't really meet
anyone new outside of school.
It's summer, remember?
I'm sure there'll be
kids in the neighborhood.
I guess.
Oh, is that where
the bakery is?
It's cute, isn't it?
I love it.
Wow, this town is so small.
I know, it is.
It'll be good for us.
Fresh start.
Oh, no.
Hmm, what?
The fish your dad got me.
Maybe we can glue
it back together.
No, baby.
I mean, it's almost
20 years old.
I miss Dad.
I do, too.
You must be Lena.
I'm Heather from
the Boarding House
coffee shop
across the street.
Here, have a welcome cup.
Thank you.
Mmm, this is
really, really good.
No, like really good.
I source from the best
farmers in Central America.
Only the best
for my customers.
And your new neighbors.
So, how is business
around here?
I think
you're gonna do fine.
I got an idea.
Why don't you
grab some of those cupcakes,
and I'll introduce
you to the gang, huh?
Alright, sounds good.
Things around here are
turn of the century
like red brick, you know.
They're just gorgeous.
Yeah, it's super
laid back energy.
I think, you guys are
gonna really like it.
It's what I'm looking for.
- Oh, my God, hey, girl.
- Hey, how's it going?
- Good.
- This is Lena.
She's the new baker--
- Hi.
- Hi, nice to meet you.
Oh, my God.
Have a cupcake.
My trainer is gonna kill me.
Mmm, oh, my God, thank you.
So, I'll see you
at yoga later?
- Bye.
- Bye.
So, now let's go check out...
- Hey.
- Hey, Jenny.
This is Lena.
She brought cupcakes.
- Hi.
- Oh, wow.
Okay, well, you must
be the new baker?
I really, really shouldn't.
Oh, come on,
one little cupcake's
not gonna do anything, Jenny.
I promise they're clean,
100% GMO and pesticide free,
handmade using only
local ingredients.
Okay, okay, okay,
you got me.
Gosh, how can I resist?
You know what I will take one
for my son because he is 17,
and his metabolism
can handle it.
I actually have a
daughter his age.
Oh, that's perfect we
should introduce them.
Maybe he could show
her around town.
Oh, yeah, that would be great.
How about you you're
gonna be at yoga tomorrow?
Of course.
Hey, Lena, you should come.
Casey will be there too.
Okay, sounds fun.
Great, it's settled
I'll put ya in.
So, we can go ahead and
just skip this place.
Hardware store guy
doesn't like cupcakes.
No, Michael's
a big health nut.
Well, shouldn't I just
go in and introduce myself?
I wouldn't.
In fact, I would stay away
from him if you could.
He's a womanizer
and he's dangerous.
Hello, Heather.
You keeping out of trouble?
Very funny, Hank.
Don't you have some
streets you need to patrol?
If patrol means standing around
looking at beautiful
women, I'd say absolutely.
You have
a new friend here, huh?
Oh, yes, this is Lena.
She's the new baker.
Hello, Lena,
nice meeting you.
Hi. Cupcake?
Oh, thank you very much.
No, I'm trying to, you know.
Hey, Heather.
Who's your friend?
I'm Lena. I opened
the new bakery.
Would you like
a sample cupcake?
Kiddin' me? Absolutely.
Wow, this is delicious.
Maybe worth
a cheat day, huh?
Everyday is
a cheat day for me.
I could eat
six more of these--
Okay, Michael, we've gotta go.
Don't let me keep you.
Nice to meet you, Lena.
- You too.
- Thanks for the cupcake, huh?
- You're welcome.
- Bye-bye, Heather.
- Bye, Hank.
- Nice meeting you.
It's a shame
this isn't open.
We could've done
weddings together.
It was heartbreaking.
She was really cool.
What happened?
This is Beth's flower shop.
She was my best
friend, like a sister,
and then one day
she texted Michael,
said that she was leaving.
Since then nobody's gotten
a single call
or text from her.
She just left and
never came back.
I'm so sorry.
I mean, if you guys
were such good friends,
I'm sure
she had a good reason
for leaving
without telling you.
I don't think she did.
Apparently, no one's
ever seen her again.
That's so weird.
Wonder what happened to her?
I don't know, but it's not
like there's a murderer
running around the town.
But Heather insists
there's something wrong.
I just think she's
being a little paranoid.
Let's hope it's just that.
What was that?
I don't know.
Who's there?
We have a knife.
Hey, sorry.
My ball went over the fence.
I didn't know anyone
lived here yet.
You didn't see the
moving van yesterday?
Do you always hop
over people's fences?
Only when it's late at night.
Well, next time just
knock on our door, okay?
Sure thing, yeah.
I'm Charlie by the way.
I'm Lena Mitchell.
This is my daughter Ashley.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Nice to meet you.
You too.
Well, I should probably
be getting back.
My mom's probably freaking out.
Well, see ya.
Use the door.
It's that one right there?
- Uh-huh.
- Yeah.
- Hey.
- Hey.
This is for you.
Aw, you shouldn't have.
I really appreciate you
showing me around yesterday.
Well, it
was my pleasure.
You know, why don't
we slice this up,
and give it out to your
customers for free?
Good idea, I'm gonna
grab some plates.
Are you trying to
karate chop me?
No, I'm like a hardware ninja.
Oh, okay.
Do you ever listen to
true crime podcasts
or those docs on Netflix?
Not really, no.
Oh, okay.
Everything alright?
Yeah, I don't know.
Michael and Casey.
I just hope she's careful.
Aren't you being a
little too hard on them?
I have a bad
feeling about him.
I hope you have a
good feeling about me.
Of course, I do.
You're one of the girls.
Let's pass these out.
Here you go, ladies.
It's on the house, okay.
- Enjoy.
- Thank you.
From the new
baker up the street.
- For free.
- Thank you.
Don't do that.
Oh, perfect.
You know how I told
you I was worried
that something happened
to Beth, the florist?
Well, she was dating
Michael when she left town.
Well, it explains why
he's flirting with Casey.
Michael seems so
caring and attentive,
but that's usually
who's behind the murder,
the caring and
attentive husband.
They weren't even married.
They practically were though.
Hey, girl, hey.
Wow, okay. Alright.
Cake after yoga?
- Mm-hmm.
- Okay.
So I see
the flirting continues.
Has he asked her out yet?
No idea.
She seems to really
enjoy the attention.
Nothing wrong with that.
Hey, I'm almost done.
Come on in.
I'm just cleaning up.
What's going on?
My God, why are
you wearing that?
It's so hot.
Did you try Lena's cake?
It was so good.
Oh, my God, I am so
glad she moved here.
You know what?
She is so sweet.
I really like her.
I just got
some new tops in too.
I'm actually wearing
one, you know.
I hate putting
furniture together.
Come on, it's fun.
It's like a puzzle.
Lay all the pieces out.
Where's the...
the metal thing?
What metal thing?
Like the L shaped metal stick.
Oh, the Allen wrench.
It should be in there.
Alright. Well then, we'll
go to the hardware store.
You work here?
Oh, hey.
Yeah, just for the summer.
So can you help us
find Allen wrenches,
and you don't have to jump
over any aisles though.
Just give me a second.
Hey, girls.
I don't recommend
sneaking up on customers.
Kind of like a
ninja around here.
Yep, you can call me
Michael, hardware ninja.
Follow me.
Here they are.
Maybe you should label
things or something.
Yeah, I should get
around to that, huh?
Yeah, we'd be able
to find things.
I could probably find
the time to do that.
What size you say
you need again?
I brought the instructions.
I got it.
Looks like there might
be a little puppy love
between Charlie and
your daughter, huh?
Yeah, she grew up way too fast.
Here we go.
One Allen key for
one coffee table.
Thank you.
I could come over
and help you
build that thing,
if you want?
I think, I'm good.
Girls can build things too.
No, I just meant...
I'm saying all the wrong
things today, aren't I?
No, you're good.
Thanks for the help.
- Yeah.
- Gotta go.
You're welcome.
You're doing really well.
Have you done yoga before?
Not much.
Are you
enjoying the sessions?
Definitely, I mean, I was
never able to get into Crow,
but now it just it clicked
when you said look in
front of me and not down.
That's the trick.
Hey, where's Casey?
We missed her energy today.
She's usually always
here on Tuesdays.
I'm sure she'll
be here tomorrow.
I should text her.
Okay, that is so cute.
Thanks, I do love coffee.
Oh, I heard that
Charlie ran into
you and your daughter
at the hardware store.
Yes, he did.
Yeah, he came home, and
he was talking about
how he thinks Ashley
is kind of cute.
Well, I hear that he's
a bit of a ladies man.
What? No.
You can't believe that.
He's never even had
a real girlfriend.
Well, speaking of ladies men,
I hear that Michael likes
to play the field a lot.
Oh, I almost forget
I did some digging
into Michael's past
last night.
- Heather.
- Check this out.
He was a semi-pro fighter.
He killed a guy
during a fight.
Heather, haven't we
been through this enough?
Michael's not a killer.
Hey, ladies.
- Michael.
- Come on let's go.
I'm here for my one on one.
Don't mean to
interrupt though.
Lena and I were just leaving.
Why don't you go ahead
and put your things
down over there and lay on the
mat when you're ready.
Right here, okay?
Yeah, it's perfect.
Hey, can you text me
when your session's over?
Sure, why?
I just wanna talk to
you about something.
Um, okay.
Let's go.
Hey, Ashley.
My ball went over
the fence again.
Do you mind getting it for me?
Why don't you hop over the
fence and get it yourself?
Well, I mean, I would but
you're sitting right there.
That'd be rude.
I don't wanna be rude, so.
How bad of a basketball
player do you have to be
to keep losing your
ball over the fence?
Oh, I'm terrible.
I mean, I'm really bad.
So do you wanna play
a game or something?
Yeah, let's do it.
I think, you need more
practice in the paint.
Okay, you're not as
bad as you say you are.
I was champion of my third
grade basketball team.
Oh, yeah. Yeah?
How do you like working
at the hardware store?
Uh, I don't.
Then why do it?
My mom wanted me to
get a summer job.
Keep me out of trouble.
Did you mean to throw the
basketball over the fence?
You wanna see my room?
Hey, so, I gotta
show you something.
- Okay.
- I'll meet you at the desk.
You need a new hobby.
I found this in the
alleyway behind Beth's shop
a few days after
she went missing.
You mean left town.
It's got initials on it.
Beth gave this to
Michael for his birthday.
So, he threw out a gift
from his girlfriend
after she left town.
That's a pretty
normal thing to do.
I think,
he used it to kill her,
and then tried
to get rid of it.
By throwing it out
behind her shop
literally with his name on it.
And it's clean.
Well, I'm sure he cleaned it
after he killed her with it.
Look, Heather, you are great,
and I am super thankful
for your friendship.
But you're being really
weird about this.
You know, she's been
gone for a while.
You're just
torturing yourself.
You need to let her go.
She's dead.
I know she's dead.
She would've said goodbye.
Hey, hey, it's okay.
I'm sure Beth is fine.
You're just overworked.
I see how many hours you're
putting into this place.
I know it sounds crazy.
I just miss Beth a lot.
I know.
But you just need a few
extra hours of sleep,
and cut out the murder TV
and podcasts for a while.
You know,
what if I ask Ashley
if she would work here
for a few days a week.
How's that sound?
Yeah, that would help actually.
And maybe you could
actually take a day off.
Put that away.
Ashley, where are you?
I hope you're ready for
Guthrie's best slice.
Look what I got.
I didn't hear you come in.
That's because I was
gonna surprise you.
Hey, Mrs. Mitchell.
Can Charlie stay for pizza?
Hmm, maybe another time.
Yeah, I should probably
get going anyway.
Okay, bye,
I'll see you later.
- See ya.
- Say hi to your mom.
I will.
So, you wanna watch that
show about the pizza guy
who straps a bomb
to his chest?
That's a bit dark,
don't you think?
Hmm, maybe.
So, Heather
just keeps pushing
this murderer
conspiracy thing.
I mean, I don't get it.
I mean, she's so broken up
about her friend leaving town
that she's making
up stories now.
I change my mind.
I think, we should
watch it for research.
Oh, God.
And Charlie helped
me set up the Wi-Fi,
so we're ready to
stream whenever.
Speaking of Charlie,
you are way too young
to have a boy in your room.
We weren't doing anything.
I know, but I am not comfortable
with him being in there
especially when I'm not home.
Why don't you just trust me.
It's not that, honey.
We... we just don't really
know Charlie very well.
I'm getting to know him.
Look, next year you're
gonna be in college.
You can do whatever you want.
But just take this last year
in high school slow for me.
You just don't get it.
I do actually.
Heather, you alone?
What do you want?
This has gotta stop.
I don't know what
you're talking about.
The harassment.
It's ridiculous.
- Wasn't it true?
- It is not true.
Isn't it true you
killed someone?
I'm gonna stop you.
This is the last
time I'm telling you.
Leave me alone.
Or what?
You'll be sorry.
What was that about?
Uh, he just wants
me off his trail.
I need some tea
you want some tea?
Yeah. Yeah, honey,
I'd love some tea.
So what's the latest?
Besides that just now.
Thank you.
Come on, you can tell me.
I know how you get
all lathered up
after listening
to your podcasts.
This thing with Michael,
it's not because you have
a crush on him, is it?
Absolutely not.
I told Lena about
the hammer thing.
Oh, God.
That nonsense.
What'd she say?
Same thing you did.
Serial killers
aren't that dumb.
You feel better now?
No, Casey's still missing.
But maybe she just,
I don't know, needed
some time to herself.
Should we contact her family?
No, I don't think
it's that serious.
She just wouldn't disappear
like this, you know?
She's too polite,
too trusting.
I know she got herself
in trouble somehow.
The polite and trusting
ones always do.
I think you need
to switch to decaf.
So this is a hip
flexor, Child's Pose.
So widen out your knees
and sit back on your heels.
Yeah, that's good.
Great job.
Reach your fingertips towards
the top of the classroom.
In throw your nose,
out throw your mouth.
Beautiful job, Lena.
Now when you're ready,
we're gonna come
up onto all fours
and we're going to
do lion's breath.
So we're all gonna take a
deep inhale through our nose,
and on the exhale you
stick out your tongue
and release the breath
with an "ahh" sound.
Now we're going to transition
into everybody's
favorite, Corpse Pose.
So get comfortable
on your backs.
Snuggle your shoulders
underneath you.
Open your palms,
and let your feet fall
wherever they do.
And take this moment
to really thank your body.
Only rise when your
body compels you to.
- Thank you.
- My pleasure.
- Thank you.
- Hmm-mm.
I just wanted to say,
I really
found my breath today.
Oh, fantastic, Aticus.
There you are.
Great, class, Jenny.
I'm so glad
that you enjoyed it.
So I caught,
Charlie and Ashley in
her bedroom last night.
- Oh.
- Not super happy about it.
Uh... did you
talk to Ashley about it?
Yeah, I did.
I hope you talked to Charlie
about boundaries with girls.
Yes. Oh, my God.
You don't have to
worry about Charlie.
Honestly, he's a
very, very sweet,
very sensitive young man.
- Okay.
- Yeah.
By the way how is Ashley
adjusting to the move?
She's good.
You know, just a little bored.
Well, you know, I don't
know if she'd be interested,
but I could use a
little help around here
if she's into like
maybe a part-time job.
I'll ask her when
I get home tonight.
Okay, great.
Yeah, call me let me know.
All right.
- Talk to you later.
- Okay.
Thank you.
It was delicious.
Oh, thanks so much.
Have a great day.
You scared me. Again.
Told you I'm pretty sneaky.
Hardware ninja.
I forgot.
That's right.
What can I get you?
So I know I shouldn't
do this, but I just...
I had to have one of your
delicious treats
after my burger.
Well, I have a really
great cake today.
So, why don't you have a seat
I'll bring you a slice over.
Okie dokie.
Hey, you wanna join me?
Uh, sorry, I'm kind
of busy right now.
You aren't trying to
avoid me, are you?
I guess, I can
spare a few minutes.
Mmm, this cake is amazing.
I know things been a bit
weird around here lately,
but I want you to know I had
nothing to do with any of this.
Any of what?
Do I really have to say it?
I know what you're
talking about.
And, uh...
something else.
What's that?
I done a lot of work to
clear my name over the years.
I tried really hard to
make up for my past,
but I'm not perfect.
- It's okay.
- No.
Hear me out.
Heather showed me
the headline.
So you can understand
why I'm here then?
People make it really
hard to start over.
Everyone's runnin'
from something.
Are we?
My husband passed
away from cancer,
and after that,
I just couldn't
go back to my old life.
Lena, I'm so sorry.
I need to go back to work.
Thanks again for the cake.
You're welcome,
hardware ninja.
That's my dad and me
on a fishing trip.
It was like a year
before he got sick.
He looked really nice.
He was.
I wish my dad was nice.
At least you have a dad.
I don't.
He walked out on us.
One day he just went to
work and never came back.
I'm so sorry.
My mom says that he's got
this new family somewhere,
but I wouldn't know.
Maybe Michael can be
your new step-dad.
You're hilarious, but...
I don't think he likes
my mom like that.
Do you trust him?
What do you mean?
I trust you.
You do?
I didn't say how much.
How was your day?
Mom, we weren't even
in my room.
I didn't
just mean your room.
I meant being alone
in the house at all.
How was I supposed
to know that?
You just were.
That's such crap.
Now you're just making the
rules up as you go along.
I am not, and please don't
talk to me like that.
You just don't know what it's
like for your dad to die.
Like when people ask
about my parents,
I try to avoid it.
I just wanna say,
oh, my mom and me
because it's easier to pretend
that's it's always
been that way.
And, guess what, Charlie
does the same thing.
He's the only one
that understands
what I'm going through.
I'm sorry.
I miss Dad too.
I really, really miss him.
Do you think it's ready yet?
Let's check.
I think, it needs
another couple minutes.
Okay, I need you
to make a decision
on this part-time job thing.
Is it gonna be
Jenny's or Heather's?
Jenny is Charlie's mom, right?
I think, I wanna work
at the yoga studio.
Of course, you do.
All right, I will
call Jenny tomorrow,
and tell her you'll
stop by the studio.
Finish the pasta
and the sauce.
Michael, what are
you doing here?
I realize that I did not
properly welcome you
to town, so... welcome.
Thank you, that's
awfully nice of you.
So my daughter and I are
just getting ready to eat.
Ooh, pasta.
Mom, aren't you
gonna invite him in?
No, no, it's okay.
I was joking.
You are more than welcome to.
Hey, Casey, it's Heather.
No need to call me back.
I'm in the boutique in case
the security company calls you.
You don't have
cameras, do you?
I hope you're alive.
That's a lot of bleach.
That's definitely blood.
Jenny. Jenny, I need you at
the boutique right now.
Plus he's really funny.
That's really sweet.
Isn't my mom the best?
She certainly
sounds like it.
Okay, we'll I've had
enough adult romance.
I'm going to bed.
Goodnight, honey.
She seems like
such a great kid.
She is.
Can I ask you
something personal?
About Beth?
How did you guys meet?
I like these.
Okay, great.
It's a nice spot you got here.
Oh, thank you, thank you.
I'm pretty proud of my shop.
Yeah, this town seems
like a perfect place
to open my own
business finally.
So hopefully business
will go well,
and I don't know maybe
I'll settle down.
I hope you do.
And some of these.
Great. Well, this is a
very nice array of blooms.
I'm sure your wife
will be very happy.
Yeah, they're for my mother.
It's her birthday.
Oh, okay.
Um, no wife.
No wife.
- Girlfriend?
- Mm-mmm.
Oh, okay.
Well, I'll just
go ring these up.
All right.
We were pretty serious.
I asked her
to move in with me.
What'd she say?
That she'd think about it,
and then she sent me a text
saying that she's
leaving town one day.
She sent you a text?
She didn't do it in person?
What do you think that is?
I don't know.
Maybe she dropped
a bottle of nail polish.
When blood dries it
looks like that, right?
- Really?
- Wait. You smell that?
It smells like bleach.
It does.
Why would she need bleach?
Honey, you're letting
your imagination
run away with you again,
okay? Nobody is dead.
I'm gonna call the cops.
You're gonna call the
cops and tell them what?
That Casey texted me,
and told me
she's with her dad?
And Beth, look I loved Beth
just like you loved Beth,
but you remember her and she
was flaky and flighty.
But don't you see
a pattern here?
No, I don't.
- I'm sorry.
- I don't see a pattern.
But what I do see is
that you are sick,
and you need to go home
and you need to get some rest.
Who's gonna find our friends?
Heather, please, okay?
Go home.
What's gonna happen if
you get too sick to work?
You're pushing
yourself too hard.
So please, for me,
will you please go
home and get some rest?
Okay, I'll bring you some soup.
I don't like soup.
Have you heard Heather's
conspiracy theory?
Which one?
That Beth was disappeared.
She won't quit, will she?
Can't people just stop
talking about her leaving?
I mean, it's hard
enough to get by in life
without being the subject
of town gossip, you know.
It must be difficult.
She did find your hammer
with your initials.
It was a gift,
and I tossed it.
I haven't looked back since.
Just so you know,
I don't believe the rumors.
- Oh, yeah?
- Yeah.
Thanks, Lena.
Well, at least
not most of them.
So, jobs yours
if you want it.
Thank you so much, yeah.
When do you think
you might wanna start?
How about right now?
Okay, you think you're ready?
I was born ready.
I like it, that's
a good attitude.
Alright, well, the cleaning
supplies are right here.
- Okay.
- And I usually
start off by sweeping.
- Okay.
- Yeah.
So how's your mom doing?
I mean,
is she adjusting okay?
Everybody around here
has been
you know, a little bit
on the edge lately.
Yeah, I think, she's okay.
She had a guy over
for dinner last night.
It was nice to see her
smile like that again.
She hadn't done that
since my dad was around.
Who is the guy?
It was weird he sort of
just showed up unannounced.
It was the guy from
the hardware store.
Mm-hmm, yeah.
I think
they had a lot of fun.
You look pretty cute
in that sweatshirt.
Zip it up you'll be goth.
You mean full goth?
Well, I don't want
that, I guess.
Probably take it off then.
Um, thanks for lunch.
I really appreciate that.
No problem, Charlie.
Listen, Charlie.
I know your mom's
not around much.
She's doin' the best
to pay the bills.
Yeah, she cares more about her
stupid classes than me, but...
The world can be a
tough place, Charlie,
especially without
your parents around.
You're a good kid,
you really are.
You're the first person
to ever call me that.
That feels weird.
Well, you are.
I want you to know if
you ever wanna
talk about things
or you ever need something,
I'm gonna be around
for you, all right?
Okay, it's gettin'
mushy now, so...
Knock you out.
You're tenacious,
aren't you?
I don't know what that means.
It means you don't
give a girl a break.
Would you like to
have dinner with me
just the two of us alone?
- Oh.
- I realize this morning
I just sort of invited myself
into your house last night.
Could I make it up to
you by taking you out?
Michael, I think you're
a really nice guy.
I just don't know if I'm
ready for romance yet.
You know, I'm just still
just trying to figure out
what my life is,
and start over.
Don't blame me for trying.
If you change your mind,
you know where to find me.
I will go out with you.
Yes. It's been a year.
I can go out on one date.
I'll pick you up at eight.
Hey, Heather.
Hey, I'm just finishing up.
Do you want some tea?
Yeah, your icy
looks really good.
- Sure.
- Thanks.
So, how's the detective
business going?
Well, I am piecing
it all together.
Oh, yeah?
Okay, so Beth
decided to stay,
and someone
killed her for it,
and then someone
didn't like that
Casey and Michael
were getting so close,
and now Casey's gone.
But you said yourself
that Casey and Michael
were just friends, right?
And that Casey didn't
even like him that way.
So that theory is no good.
You were close
with both of them.
Did they ever tell
you anything about
feeling threatened
or in danger or?
No, never.
You're not interested
in Michael, are you?
Heather, listen.
You should really
just leave this alone
you know, before you get hurt.
Get hurt?
What do you know that I don't?
Okay, see this is exactly
what I'm talking about.
You're going over the edge.
- Jenny, I'm fine.
- No, you're not!
Your behavior is
borderline psychotic!
I don't appreciate
the way you're talking to me.
Well, I'm sorry,
it's the truth.
Okay, you're on some crusade
strictly for your
own entertainment,
and you're ruining someone's
life in the process.
You don't even seem to care.
You're a
coffee shop owner, okay?
You're not a detective.
And, frankly, you're
embarrassing yourself.
You're embarrassing
your friends.
Jenny, I'm just trying
to find our friends.
- Okay, I'm trying to figure--
- Okay, okay, okay.
I didn't mean that.
I'm sorry. Okay?
Just... just drop it.
No promises.
That should do it.
Help me!
Help me!
Oh, God!
Are you nervous?
A little.
All right,
I'm really nervous.
Do you think he
changed his mind?
No, trust me he likes you.
For you.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
Is this too dressy?
Should I change?
You look amazing, really.
- Thank you.
- Of course.
Oh. Sorry, I totally forgot
that I already
brought you some,
but that's what you're
supposed to do, right?
That's okay, thank you.
Sorry I'm late.
Are you okay you're
a little flustered?
No, I just had a customer
show up to the shop.
Gave me hell.
I know how that is.
- Should we go?
- Yeah.
Have her home by
midnight, please?
- Yes, ma'am.
- You have fun.
Pizza's in the fridge.
And remember--
I know.
No house guests.
- Thank you.
- Shall we?
After you.
Bye, Ash.
I have never had pulled
pork like that in my life.
Pretty amazing, isn't it?
Words cannot describe.
- Hey, I'm sorry.
- No.
I'm sorry.
It's me.
I'm just--
I'm not used to that.
It's gonna take me a little
bit to get to the hand thing.
It's truly no
problem, all right?
Again, it's okay.
You're a really good
mother you know that?
Not a lot people who
could've gone through
what you went through and
stayed as strong as you have.
Sometimes I feel like
I'm the teenager.
She's the one who pushed
me to go out tonight.
Do you mean somebody
had to push you?
My rugged charm
wasn't enough for you?
No, I don't
mean it like that.
Maybe she can push you into
seeing a movie tomorrow.
They got some Chevy Chase movies
going on at the Four Plex.
- No.
- Yeah.
It's only 10 miles from here.
I'd love to.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
They got Twizzlers,
your favorite.
How can I say no?
Hey, Lena,
you haven't seen
Heather, have you?
No, isn't the shop open?
We've been waiting
here for a half hour.
I have some tea
over at my place
if you guys are interested?
Yeah, that'd be great.
Alright, I'll meet
you guys over there.
You're welcome.
You're welcome.
Lena, you got anymore
of those butter cookies?
I have a fresh batch resting
right behind the counter.
All right, let's go.
I think, I'm finished
with the floors.
- Oh.
- Do they look okay?
Uh, let's take a look.
Yeah, great.
Great work.
So now you can
just take this
and put it back in that
storeroom that I showed you.
And then we've got
a couple of minutes,
so come on back and we
can take a break and chat.
Is there anything else
I can do?
Nope, not right now, honey.
When Michael gets here,
I can show you how to
check students
into the computer.
What'd you and your
mom do last night?
I ate pizza
and watched a movie.
She went out.
Wow, busy lady.
Yeah. Out with who?
- Again.
- Mm-hmm
Those rumors about
him they don't...
they don't bother you?
- Not really.
- No?
My dad always said
that talk is cheap.
I'm just glad that she's
finally getting out.
She says that
they're just friends,
but I can tell
that he likes her.
Is she serious about him?
I don't know.
I mean, she's not
a casual dater
even before she met my dad.
They always said that she was
the hardest lady to date in LA,
and then he convinced her
to go on a first date,
and the rest is history.
Hey, mom.
- Hi, monkey.
- Hi.
What time does Ashley get off?
How about, uh--
How about now?
Yeah, you guys,
you go ahead you go
and enjoy the sunshine.
- Cool.
- Yeah.
- Thanks.
- Hmm-mm.
Namaste, Ashley.
Hey, Jenny.
Everything okay at the studio?
Yeah, I just figured I'd
pop by and say hello.
What's that?
I found them out back
in the parking lot.
Do you recognize them?
No, should I?
Look at the coffee cup.
I think they're Heather's.
So how long have
you been dating Michael?
I wouldn't say
that we're dating.
So you just slept with him?
Jenny, that's not really
any of your business.
Are you gonna see him again?
I mean we were planning on
going to a movie tonight,
but now...
I don't know, I think
I'm just gonna cancel.
That's good.
I mean, he's not really
your type anyway, is he?
I mean, how would you
know what my type is?
Because I know your kind.
- My kind?
- Yeah.
Yeah, you breeze
in from a big city
like some wounded bird
to a small town
looking for people
to help you.
Is that right?
I figured I would just come by
and give you a little
friendly advice.
He's not yours.
You should just
stay away from him.
Did you hear me?
I hear you.
That's real good.
I'm gonna
give these to Heather.
And you,
you should probably just
go back to wherever
you came from.
You know, I'm fine
right where I am.
Not for long.
Oh, my God!
I haven't been hit that
hard since the ring.
Good shot.
You're lucky
that's all you got.
So, what's the deal
with you and Jenny?
I'm not sure what you mean.
She came over here
today on a rampage.
She's just a friend.
A friend that gives you
private yoga lessons.
She likes to do that
because I gave her son a job
just repaying a
favor sort of thing.
That's right, you also
work with her son.
You know, I am not
one of these girls
that you could just gaslight.
I swear, Lena,
nothing's going on.
You're the only
one I care about.
Well, tell that to Jenny.
'Cause I'm done.
We're done.
You can find
some other girl--
Come on, Lena,
don't be like that.
You know, I'm not
feeling very well.
- I can't make it tonight.
- That's okay.
Don't touch me.
You know, I think,
you should go.
Your legs they look
good in the water.
They only look
good in the water.
I mean, they look good
outside of the water,
but they look good
in the water.
I'll take it.
Okay. Good, just take it
and run with it, please.
My gosh.
Oh, one sec, it's my mom.
Wow, that's a pretty
old school ring.
Where are you?
Look do me a favor
and go home.
I'll be there soon.
Come on, mom, we're
not even inside.
Ashley, just go home, please.
I don't wanna hear it.
This is so annoying.
You okay?
Yeah, nothing.
You know, you can tell
me anything, right?
I know.
That's good.
We're gonna do one
more deep breath.
Really get a good stretch.
And now we're gonna
settle into...
That's real good.
You know, I think, Charlie's
always secretly hoped
that you and I
would get together.
I just think he really
admires you, you know.
I even think that he
got a little angry
when he thought you
were dating Casey.
Casey's just a friend.
I'm glad he doesn't think I'm
Ted Bundy like everyone else.
I know you could
never hurt anybody.
Well, I have.
Do you wanna talk about it?
Definitely not.
It's just that, you know,
I mean, if there's ever
anything that I can do...
I mean you've been such a
great father figure to Charlie.
I mean, you know that his dad
isn't in our lives anymore.
I know.
That's so bad for Charlie.
Every kid needs a father.
I just...
I don't know what we
would do without you.
I'm not going anywhere.
What a gentleman.
So same time tomorrow?
- Yes, ma'am.
- Great.
Hey, are you sure I can't
pay you for the class?
Oh, no, no, I can't
take your money
not after everything you've
done for Charlie and me.
Thanks, Jenny.
Let me know if you
change your mind.
In the meantime if you need
any hardware solutions,
I'm your guy.
Yes, you are.
There it is.
How's it going at
the hardware store.
You know, it's pretty slow.
Is Michael still
trying to be your dad?
What's your deal with him?
What do you mean?
I mean, you don't
seem to like him much.
I like that
he's into my mom.
But I have a bad
feeling about him.
All the women in this town
are obsessed with him.
Yeah, my mom included.
It's annoying, and
it's embarrassing.
She's always texting him
and giving him these
free yoga lessons.
Oh, no.
What? What's wrong?
I told her that my mom and
Michael went on a date.
- Really.
- Yeah.
And now I feel like a jerk.
I'm sure it's not
a big deal, so...
Did you know that
he killed someone?
Yeah, he told me.
It's why he moved here.
Wow, okay, so it is true.
Apparently, he just hit
someone so hard he died.
But it was in the
boxing ring, so...
Yeah, but that's
like really strong.
It's a hazard of the job.
I don't know what to say.
Probably has a temper.
I don't think so.
I mean, I work with him,
and he seems pretty nice.
Or is he
hiding something?
It's Lena!
You here?
So you're telling me
that you just decided
to break into your
new friend's house.
I didn't break in.
I used the key under the mat.
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
Is this your house?
No, but I didn't break in.
Did Heather instruct
you to use the key
and open the door?
Honey, you broke in.
She didn't show up to
her coffee shop today,
and I found her keys in the
alley next to the dumpster.
Well, don't tell me that.
You're digging a deeper
hole for yourself.
You just told me you
found them under the mat.
That florist just
disappeared over a year ago.
And then Casey just up
and leaves a few days ago.
Heather was worried
that something happened
to both of them,
and now she's gone too.
Jesus Christ, you're starting
to sound just like Heather.
You can't let that
woman get to you.
She's paranoid.
I thought she was paranoid too.
But maybe she's onto something.
Listen, Jenny came
storming into my shop today
threatened me,
and took Heather's keys.
I've known Jenny
her whole life.
She ain't the sort.
Did you reach out to Heather?
I can't get her on the phone.
But she texted me.
Well, if she contacted you,
why are you trying to make
me think she's missing?
Well, if she's sick,
why isn't she at home?
Listen, there is
something wrong here.
Please just do your job.
Don't disrespect me, Lena.
I'm the law in this town.
Look, I know you're new here,
all right, so I'm
gonna give you a pass.
Better yet,
this is what I'll do.
I'll do some
snooping around town.
Okay, but if I find out
that everything is in order,
you just gotta stop this
fantasy it's ridiculous.
You're sounding like Heather.
I promise, I will.
And no more breaking into
your friend's houses, alright?
See you soon.
All right.
Ashley, you here?
Ashley, you here?
You here?
Anyone home?
Do you always break into
your neighbor's home?
The door was open.
I need to speak with Ashley.
Yeah, sure, she's
in the backyard.
Come on it's this way.
I was gonna have
a glass of wine.
Do you want one?
Thanks for letting
Ashley stay here.
Oh, of course. By the way
I was gonna tell you.
I saw Heather and she's fine.
You saw her?
Well, I mean,
I talked to her.
On the phone?
Yeah. Yeah, why?
Did she say where she is?
She's gonna stay with her
aunt for a little while.
That cold
that she has, I guess,
it's taken a really
bad turn to the flu.
That's what Hank thought.
Did you go to the police?
No, but the old drunk
almost arrested me.
Hey, Mrs. Mitchell.
Mom, can we stay for dinner?
Ashley, I told you to go home.
Well, I was going to,
but then you came here first.
Why don't we just let the
kids play for a while.
Besides there's
something I'd really like
to talk to you about.
Go home, Ashley.
Please, can I stay?
- No.
- I'm not leaving.
You are being so unfair.
Ashley. Ash.
She doesn't even care
about what I want.
This whole move has
just been for her.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, okay.
Mikey, Mikey, Mikey.
How you doin'?
Hey, Hank.
Good to see you buddy.
I'm glad you're open late.
Ready to throw back
a few, huh?
More ready than you
can possibly imagine.
Boy, have I had a day.
You wouldn't believe
me if I told you.
I'm sorry I asked.
Then don't tell me.
Okay. I won't.
You guys having some
trouble at home?
Just normal kids stuff.
Can I use your restroom?
Yeah, of course.
If you go right
around that corner,
it's the first
door on the right.
I ever tell you
about that time
I took down a stag
with my bare hands?
Yeah, I say I heard that
about six or seven times,
give or take a couple.
Yeah, but I found the
soft spot in the skull.
I know the story well.
What the hell
happened to your lip?
Lena hit me with a broom.
These girls are nuts.
I swear, Hank,
I really thought we had
something good going, man.
Till the broom hit you in the
face and told you otherwise.
Yeah, I don't buy it, man.
What the...
What am I doing?
Is everything okay?
Yeah, just knocked
something over.
Well, come on in here.
I, uh...
I wanna get to the girl talk.
Yeah, sure.
Come, sit.
So how did your date
with Michael go?
What date?
Don't be coy.
I meant it when I said I was
sorry about the other day.
I was... I was
overprotective of a friend.
I'd really like
to make amends.
To a fresh start.
Oh, it must be cork.
It's fine.
It's really very good.
So what'd you
do on your date?
You know, it's getting late.
I think, we should be going.
No, no, no, no,
let the kids play.
Did Michael kiss you?
I'm sorry, I have to take
care of something real fast.
You know,
I was really surprised
that you agreed to go out
with him to begin with,
considering what Heather
told you about him.
Did you guys
get to first base?
I'll tell you about
that another time.
You're not going anywhere.
If you run, I will
gut your daughter.
We should go fishing
next week, you know.
Have some beers,
smoke a cigar.
Yeah, maybe.
I told you those
girls were nuts.
Nah, Hank, come on
man we gotta go.
- Oh, shit.
- Come on, come on, come on.
Okay, wait I should go.
- I feel bad.
- Yeah?
I haven't yelled at my
mom like that in so long.
Okay, well...
Maybe just one more game.
Well, let me see
what she says.
Hey, Mom, open up.
Just a second, Charlie.
Please don't hurt Ashley.
All you have to do
is tell her
that we have a little
errand to run together.
I won't hurt her.
I promise. Just please
don't hurt my girl.
I'm sorry I freaked out.
We can go now if you want.
You know, I'll just
meet you at home.
Jenny and I just have
to run a quick errand.
Is everything okay?
Yeah, you kids just have fun.
That was weird.
Winner's ball.
Aw, okay.
That's sweet,
that's real good.
Heather isn't at
her aunts, is she?
You should've left
when I told you to.
Now you can't leave
because you saw
what's in the purse.
No, no,
we won't tell anyone.
We'll leave.
We won't let anyone know
that you killed your friends.
You think
they were my friends?
We were each
other's competition.
You think we were
competing for Michael?
Of course, you little
idiot, who else?
Let's go.
Open the door.
Open it.
Which one's your car?
Where are we going?
You're gonna have
a little mishap
with your baking equipment.
You're the
last one I was with.
They'll know it was you.
Nobody's found out
so far.
- Get off.
- No!
No, you don't.
No, no, no!
Hey! Hey!
What's going on here?
- Ladies, knock it off!
- Lena!
- Get off of me.
- No.
Get off of me.
I will gut you like a fish.
Lena, Lena, Lena.
- Break it up.
- Come on, baby.
- Jenny.
- Thank God you're here.
- Hank.
- Hank, hold her.
Calm down, everybody calm down.
Quiet everyone.
What's going on here?
She tried to kill me?
She's a liar.
I was trying
to get the knife.
No, I don't have a knife.
Hank, you have to
listen to me.
She's the one who killed
Casey and Heather.
You're insane.
She has their
cellphones in her bag.
Which you planted.
This is a set up.
She's trying to frame me!
She's been lying
about everything.
She's been texting on
them this whole time.
Jenny, Jenny, Jenny!
Hey, we're friends.
We're friends.
I promise you,
I'll forgive you.
Just tell me the truth.
Where's Beth?
She left you because
she's a bad person.
- Listen, Hank.
- Yeah.
You have to believe me.
- Jenny, we'll sort this out.
- You know me.
I have an idea.
- Just trust me.
- For years.
- I know you.
- You don't know her.
I knew you would save me.
You have the
phones in your possession
- along with your bag?
- I don't.
No, you cannot have him!
Jenny, calm down!
- No!
- Jenny!
- Jenny!
- Hey, hey!
No, you can't have him!
I have to cuff you, Jen!
He's mine!
- You can't do this!
- Jenny, calm down.
- Mike, help me with her.
- I got you, I got you.
Do we have cuffs, I got her.
Jenny I
got her it's okay.
- We're gonna stand you up now.
- Be cool.
We're gonna get to
the bottom of this.
We'll figure this out, okay.
Michael, how could you do this?
How could you?
You were supposed
to be my husband.
You were supposed
to be Charlie's dad.
I did everything right.
You were
supposed to kiss me.
You were supposed
to love me.
I got rid of all of
those other skanks,
so that we could be together.
You got rid of 'em?
For Charlie.
'Cause he deserves
a good man in his life.
You know him.
He needs a daddy.
- Mom.
- Mom.
- Mom.
- Mom.
- You know him.
- Charlie, it's all right.
- Mom.
- Charlie, honey.
Charlie, it's okay.
- Look I gotta take your
mom for a little while.
- What'd you do?
- It's gonna
be okay, all right.
- What'd she do?
We're just gonna sort
this all out, all right.
Charlie, honey.
Jenny, I have to put
you under arrest.
You have the right
to remain silent.
Whatever you say
can and will be used
against you in a court of law.
You have a right to an attorney.
If you can't afford one,
the court will
appoint one to you.
Do you understand
you're rights, Jenny?
Mom, mom, please.
- It's alright get in there.
- Mom, what's happening?
Everything's gonna be okay.
Please, don't take my mom.
- I understand.
- Okay, please don't my mom.
- Everything's gonna be okay.
- Hank, Hank please.
- Mom, what's going on?
- I promise, Charlie.
You guys look I gotta
call social services
unless somebody can take
care of Charlie right now.
- No.
- Charlie, come with me.
No, please, don't take my mom.
I'm sorry, alright,
I have to take.
Charlie, you can come see
her in a couple of hours.
- Charlie.
- You all right.
I didn't do it, baby.
I didn't do this, Hank.
- Alright, you alright?
- What'd she do?
We don't know yet, Charlie.
I love you so much, baby.
I love you so much.
It'll be all right.
- You ready.
- Mm-hmm.
Come on, Charlie,
play some D.
Whoo, yeah!
That's my girl!
Why'd you
stop using that move?
Ash, you wanna be on
my team next time?
Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
I'm not getting
stuck with Charlie.
Sorry, I only play
on my mom's team.
Hey, Ash, you wanna
go grab a drink?
