The Final Rose (2022) Movie Script

- How do I feel?
I feel
I put myself
out there for him tonight.
You come on a show like this thinking
you're gonna find you happily ever after,
but instead it's just
your own personal hell.
Will that work?
Because I can do that again.
Do you need more tears, heartbreak?
Whatever you need.
And back to one.
- Hello?
Is anybody there?
Guess I'm wrapped.
- Oh my God!
- What did you do?
- What did you do?
- Was I not supposed
to do that?
Oh no. Sorry.
No, no, no, no, I'm gonna save it,
I'm gonna save it. Look.
- I could do some real work on your guy.
- Yeah?
- I think I should
get one of these wigs.
- Am I next?
Oh my God.
- You know, I don't think
it takes a hair stylist
to see that Bret has a lot of layers,
and I'm really excited to
discover what's underneath.
He's so cute.
Seeing the way that he cut that hair,
I could really see myself
falling in love with him.
And a man that knows his way around a pair
of scissors usually knows his way
around a few of his things too.
- Did we get you?
Absolutely not.
- I think we need an impartial
third party to make a ruling.
We got you bad, Mom.
- Well, I think this impartial third party
needs to go to bed.
- Hey, don't blame me.
It was her idea.
- Tell Tito Gabe thank you
and go brush your teeth.
Okay, bye.
- Bye.
Thanks again for watching her.
- Yeah, no worries.
I'm guessing the date didn't happen.
- Men magically disappear
when they learned that I'm a mother.
I'm sorry, Jess.
- Oh my gosh.
- You could use
a little bit of-
- Oh, yeah.
This show's still a thing?
- It's just background noise.
You know I don't really watch that trash.
- You know, you don't have to do that.
I saw your room growing up,
you've always lived in filth.
No one needs to know that.
Are you or someone
you know looking for love?
Open casting has begun
for the historic 25th
season of "Love at Last."
Send us a photo and application today
to join us on Oxley Island,
and begin your next journey for love.
- You got any other dates lined up soon?
No, why?
You know someone?
- Maybe.
- That goes there.
What's the word on security?
Network is all up in my about leaks.
If this season's gonna be
the most dramatic one yet,
needs to be on TV, don't you think,
and not on some jackasses blog?
- Yeah, I gotta call the guys.
They will have a security team
there two days before the crew.
- Make sure that happens.
- Oh, with the oat milk,
did you pour in or stir it in?
- I just-
- Just fucking with you, relax.
- Nicki, you said you had some
ideas for some day one drama?
- Oh, yeah.
So we're gonna tell the girls
that there aren't enough rooms,
so they're gonna have to share.
I've already arranged to put
the drama queens together.
- Love it.
Oh, one other thing.
I got a call this morning that Nicole F.,
she booked a recurring on a network soap,
so she's out for the season.
We got a spot to fill.
Any ideas?
- On no.
Doesn't need to be
pretty, we just need a body.
- Okay.
Here's one from the slush pile.
Jess Rose, age 31.
Single mom, divorced.
Filipino American.
Would be great for the diversity push.
- That's an easy intro package.
I could put that together this weekend.
- Fine.
But this is network TV,
so keep the film school shit to yourself.
Call the suits at the network,
have them push this through.
They owe me one.
Can I?
Her brother submitted her.
Does she even wanna be here?
- Who cares?
I'm gonna kill you.
You're gonna thank me.
- Look, I'm not going.
I never asked you to sign me up.
Reality shows are for crazy people.
- You watch them all the time.
- Yeah, from judging them
from the safety of my couch.
- Most people would kill
to be in your position.
What are you scared of?
- Public humiliation,
being apart from Leylah,
becoming a meme.
I don't know, heartbreak.
- Doesn't it pay like
a thousand bucks a day?
Worry about your heartbreak later.
Your daughter is not a cheap date.
- Aw, shit.
- Where did she learn that word from?
- I don't know.
- Here have mine.
- I just want Leylah to
have everything she needs.
- What's that supposed to mean?
Yes, anaku?
- Can Tito Gabe come over tomorrow?
- Not tomorrow, but soon.
- Why not?
- I think you like Tito Gabe
'cause he keeps giving you sugar.
- He gives me piggy
back rides like Dad did.
- You miss your dad?
Goodnight, anaku.
Hey, Gabe.
Do you mind babysitting for a bit?
- Hi, girls.
- Welcome to the "Love at Last" Mansion.
We are so glad to have you here
competing in this historic season.
I'm Nicki, one of the field producers.
- And I'm Patrick.
We're very excited to get
this production started,
but first, some ground rules.
- Don't fuck the help.
- Yes, your contracts do include
a no fraternization clause.
You're here for your Beau and no one else.
Also, and perhaps more importantly,
when there are no cameras
around, you are on ice.
Save all the juicy drama
for the fans out there.
- In that spirit, a PA's
gonna be coming around
and collecting all your phones.
- Instead, production has provided you
with these show approved devices.
- So, feel free to take as many selfies,
photos, videos, whatever you want.
And our numbers are programmed in,
so you can send everything our way.
You'll also have access
to the "Love at Last" social media app,
so our publicity team
can start generating a
buzz for this season.
- Will we be able to call our families?
- Like who, your parents?
- No,
my daughter.
- No.
- No.
- No, that's not allowed.
- You sure you don't need any help?
- No, not at all.
Thank you, though.
I'm Jess, by the way.
I know, I'm Maya.
- So what do you do here, Maya?
- I'm a production assistant.
Just kinda run around, do
whatever the show needs.
- That's so cool.
I mean, what a fun world to work in.
So what do you wanna do, like long term?
- Excuse me?
- Like producer, writer, director?
- Sorry, just no one's
ever asked me that before.
- Seriously?
- This is you.
Last door at the end
of the hall.
- Thank you so much, Maya.
- I um,
I wanna be a director.
- I'll put in a good word for you.
What are you doing here?
Oh, they told
me this was my room.
- This is my room.
Someone royally fucked up.
My contract clearly stated
that I have to have a garden view.
- Well, there are two beds,
so maybe we're roommates?
Uh , definitely not for long.
Oh, and keep to your side of the room.
I don't want my clothes to smell.
- What is it?
- I'm so sorry, can you help me with this?
- Yes.
Come on in.
You're a lifesaver.
I couldn't find anyone to help.
The girls here are scary.
- Tell me about it.
I think my roommate already hates me.
- Oh, I'm sure that's not true.
I'm Chloe.
- Jess.
It's nice to meet you.
- You know, my room's a little lonely.
Do you wanna get ready together?
Yes, of course.
You know, you're actually the first person
on this entire island that-
- I'm sorry, I'm still
getting used to that.
- Same here.
- Okay, let's go.
- Oh, let me grab my dress.
What are we doing, Mike?
- All right, we're on 10.
- Tape rolling?
- Yeah, we're already speeding, right?
Can you pull it up, Mike?
- Oh, hello lambs.
Welcome to the slaughter.
- Hey guys, wanna let
you know that I'm here.
- Hi, Lance.
- Hey, Lance.
- Also, break a leg this season.
I know, it's a big one.
- Thanks so much, Lance.
- Yeah, will do, Lance.
- I had some ideas about how to make
this season really dramatic.
There was this production
of "Cyrano de Bergerac"
on the West End that-
- Just can't.
- Yes.
- Just in-
- Hey, Lance?
- Yeah?
- Why don't we get you
to hair and makeup, okay?
All right.
Well, think about it.
- Yeah.
- There's magic when you allow
everyone to spontaneously-
- Hey, Patrick,
- Yeah,
- what's your 20?
- wardrobe's ready for you.
- Mike, I think this needs a battery.
- Hey, everybody.
We ready in five?
- Oh my gosh.
It just hit me, we're
finally gonna meet the Beau.
Am I blushing?
- I think it's just a little sunburn.
- Oh, no, seriously?
- Here, you can keep this.
- Holy crap, will you be my mom?
- Oh, you know, I don't get it.
Why do they keep the Beau a secret?
I mean, what if we don't like him?
Do we just pretend?
- What do you mean? He's the Beau.
We're here to win.
- And we're picked according
to his preferences,
so we know we're his type, mm hm.
- But that's what I'm saying.
What if the feeling's just not mutual?
- You're funny.
- All right, I'm ready to
meet our dashing prince.
Package ready?
- Yeah, I got it from Post last night.
I think you're gonna like it.
- Great.
You wanna go ahead and
put it on the monitor?
Yeah, Mike.
There you go.
- My name is Garret Dalton.
I'm 31 years old,
and I'm looking to find "Love at Last."
Life is complex,
like a puzzle,
and I'm just looking for someone
to help me put the pieces together.
But that doesn't mean
we can't have some fun.
I dance like a dork.
I love superhero movies,
and I am obsessed with "The Office."
I like giving back.
My nonprofit, Kids and Crypto,
teaches underprivileged youth
how to mine their own Bitcoin.
I'm looking for the one
who is gonna stand by me
for the rest of my life,
who's gonna cherish my heart,
and who's gonna love me
for who I am.
Apple Box.
- Sorry.
- What the fuck?
- Sorry, so sorry.
- Oo, yeow.
- Don't let it happen again.
- Yeow.
- America loves this shit.
- It paid for a half a boat.
No, I feel you.
- Yeow.
So Garret, how you feelin'?
- Are we rolling?
- No, just checkin' in.
- Oh, please stop talkin' to me.
- Gotcha.
It's off again.
- Thus, thus, thus, thus.
- It keeps fallin' off.
- Thus, thus, thus, thus.
About to roll,
let's lock it up people.
- Thus, thus, thus, thus.
Ready in three,
- Welcome back lovers to our
25th season of "Love at Last,"
here on beautiful Oxley Island.
I'm your host, Lance Mulvey,
and I'm standing here
with this season's Beau,
Garret Dalton.
So Garret, how are you feeling?
- I gotta be honest with
ya, Lance, I'm nervous.
I mean, my future wife
is out there tonight.
I just hope I don't embarrass myself.
- Ah, impossible, Garret!
You'll be fine.
All you gotta do is put
on a smile and stand tall.
- He deserved it.
Lance, we're good to go.
Bring on the contestants.
- So you ready to meet the ladies?
- I am.
- I look terrible.
How do I look? Do I look trashy?
- No, you look beautiful.
He's gonna love you.
- Thank you.
You look great, too.
- Madison Butler, you're first.
- Oh my Lord.
- They're all yours.
- Wow!
We can call it off.
I think I found her.
- Hi.
- We're done.
- I knew you were cute,
but I didn't know you were funny.
Do I know you from somewhere?
- Maybe your dreams.
- Okay.
Nice job with that one, Bill.
- Looks like we found
this season's villain.
- Yeah, girls are gonna see
right through what she's doing.
- But he won't.
Didn't know you had it in you.
There's hope for you yet.
- I'm Katie.
- Oh, hi.
- I am so excited to get
to know you and your story.
- It's too good.
- Hey, cut, cut to the wide.
America needs to see this.
- I'll see you inside.
- Okay.
- Okay.
Get her out of here or I walk.
- Yeah, fine with me.
We had fun, we had our fun.
- All right, I'll take
the giraffe to holding.
- God.
- Jess Rose,
you're up.
- You're gonna kill it.
- Hi.
- You okay?
- Yeah, totally.
I just can't believe
this is all happening.
- Don't worry.
You look beautiful.
I can't wait to get to know you,
and hear more about your daughter.
- How did you know?
- I know looking for
love again can be scary,
but I want you to know I totally
respect your journey here,
and I think you are so brave.
- That is so sweet.
Thank you.
- You look beautiful.
- Chloe. Yeah.
- Chloe, good to meet you.
Oh, we have a dancer.
I'll see you inside.
- Thank you for-
- Camera's aren't even here.
For me?
I love the dress.
Good to meet you, I'm Garret.
- Are we having fun tonight, ladies?
The first cocktail party
of the season is upon us.
This is your chance to get
some time with your Beau,
so be intentional because not everyone
will make it through this night.
- Here is to a new and exciting season.
I can't wait to get to know
you all, inside and out.
I had such an incredible
time getting to know you all.
Thank you for sharing your hearts with me.
That said, I didn't get a chance
to talk with everyone tonight,
and that's not okay.
So for now,
no one's going home.
And I look forward to one more week
getting to know all of you
here on "Love at Last."
- All right, that's a wrap
on the day, everybody.
Thank you.
Can you believe it?
Also, can you see my pit stains?
I was literally dying up there.
- No , you're fine.
- Hey, don't worry,
we're gonna get our time, okay?
- Okay.
- Come find me.
- Hey.
Hey, Jess?
Thanks for kicking me
out of our room, bitch.
- What?
What the hell
is wrong with you?
- Please tell me you got that.
- I don't have another card.
- You don't have another card?
- No, I don't, I'm sorry.
- Are you shitting me?
Get one off the truck.
- All right, all right,
all right, I'm going.
Damn it!
- Careful, ladies.
Hot points.
Let go of me.
Where are you taking me?
We're gonna talk.
- What the hell do you think you're doing?
Let go of me.
- I don't know what drama
is going on in your head,
but leave me out of it.
- Girl, I'm doing you a favor.
More drama means more screen time.
More screen time means more fans,
more followers, more money.
- Well, start that with someone else.
- Look, I'm not here to embarrass myself
in front of the entire country.
- My daughter is watching.
- It's too late for that.
They're gonna tell whatever
story they want with us.
Tell me, have you turned
you back to the camera yet?
You're fucked.
They can have you saying
anything they want you to.
Might as well own it.
- I better get this back to Maya.
- Why? Let the help take care of it.
No one here needs you to be their mom.
This isn't over!
Angelo, it's your favorite client.
Things are going well.
My roommate is this pathetic single mom.
It's like, have you seen the show?
Anyone with kids gets
cut by week two.
Anyways, just thought I'd leave a message.
Let's get lunch.
Maybe I'll take you out to Nobu.
I feel like sashimi-
- Hey, have you seen Hannah?
She never came back to
our room last night.
Maybe she got her own
room like she wanted.
Lucky you.
- We kinda got into it.
I hope I wasn't too harsh on her.
- Oh, whatever.
You know she lives for the drama.
- Good morning, ladies.
Good morning.
- Ladies, I have some sad news.
Hannah has decided to
leave the island for good.
We found this note outside
of our office door.
And Hannah let us know that
she had a family emergency
and left first thing this morning.
Now, don't let this get you down.
We have a big day planned.
It's our first group date.
Are you ladies excited?
- Can you believe this?
- It's so bizarre.
I mean, she seemed to love
the attention she was getting.
Why would she leave?
- Are you kidding?
It's less competition.
This is great.
- I hope Garret's not upset.
He seemed to like her.
- What just happened?
We have a contestant dramatically
leaving on night one.
We don't have any footage?
- How did she even get off the compound?
It's like...
It's six miles to the marina.
- I mean, we got a supply run twice a day.
She could have easily hopped
on the truck this morning.
The next run is this afternoon.
I can go check with the teamsters.
- Nobody talks to anybody about anything
until we get to the bottom of this.
We control the narrative understood?
Keep an eye on social media.
Nicki, are we all ready for group date?
- Yeah, it's gonna be a shit show.
- That's what I wanna hear.
Keep your eyes open, and your mouths shut.
- This looks exactly
like the obstacle course
from "Paradise At Last" two seasons ago.
The key is keep moving,
don't get bogged down by slower teammates.
- Garret's a terrible athlete.
He's not gonna care who
wins some stupid race.
- Yeah, but how do you know?
- Do you know that Garret's family
goes to the Met Gala every year?
Isn't that a dream?
- He told you that?
- Yeah, last night.
Wait, what did you two talk about?
- Oh, we didn't talk.
- Neither did we.
- Hi, girls.
Today's a really important day for me.
Love is not something that
you can take for granted.
Love is something that you must pursue.
I'm looking for a girl who will pursue me
no matter what obstacle stands in her way.
- That's right, ladies.
Your task today is to hit
a home run with Garret.
You will have to balance
your way to first,
hop to second, crawl to third,
and slide into home to Garret's heart.
The first one across home plate
gets a one-on-one date with Garret,
and wins their team an
extra group date tomorrow.
- Show me what you got today.
I wanna see your guts.
And cut.
All right, thanks guys.
And Maya's got you set up
with a front row seat to the carnage.
- Okay.
- So, I hear you're from New York.
- Yep.
- Lived there a few years
back in the 80s with my theater troupe.
Way different back then.
Did some pretty cool,
pretty experimental stuff.
- Hm, that's super interesting, Lance.
How long is this gonna take?
Do I have to actually
be here to watch this?
- You don't care who wins the race?
- Did you meet your wife
'cause she was good at
jumping over things?
Who gives a shit?
One, two, three, go!
One, two, three, go!
- Oh, goodness!
- Go, go!
- Whoa!
Did you see that, Garret?
- Oh, this is awful!
Jess, how are you doing this?
- I was in labor for 31 hours.
This is nothing.
Ew, ew, ew, ew, ew!
- Garret!
Yes, yes, yes, yes!
You and me, baby!
- Okay, that's a cut.
Wrap on the group date.
Great job, everybody.
Garret and Abigail, we'll see
you in the lobby in an hour.
Everybody else,
you're on ice until tonight's
Breakup Session, okay?
- See you later.
- Thank you.
Maya, get me some coffee.
Red Team, Red Team, Red Team!
- Nice job, ladies.
Better luck next time.
- Red Team!
- Hey Jess, can we grab a quick OTF?
- Look, I don't-
- It just stands for on the fly.
We wanna get your thoughts, okay?
Are we rolling?
- Rolling.
- Awesome.
All right, so tell us how you're feelin'.
- I...
I'm sorry.
You know, can we just cut?
- Let's cut.
What's wrong?
- You know this was a mistake.
I don't even know what I'm doing here.
- Wait, Jess, you can't just leave.
- Look, Hannah left.
- Well, that was a mistake.
- What I mean is you
can't just give up now.
I mean, I know things
might seem pointless,
especially after a day like today,
but I really do believe in this show,
I've seen it change people's lives.
- And also, once this episode airs,
we'll be three episodes in
and America will be rooting for you.
- No, it's true.
Representation matters.
Who you are, where you
came from, your daughter.
It's all gonna play.
You just gotta hang tight.
Trust the process.
- What process?
You know, I've been running around trying
to keep my head above water.
I've hardly even talked with Garret.
- Well, Garret really likes you.
- Yeah.
- I mean,
he wouldn't have picked you
to be here if he didn't.
- I'll tell you what, we have
a Breakup Session tonight.
And if you're right, Garret cuts you,
there's no harm, right?
You get to go home, be with your daughter.
But if he votes to keep you on the island-
- That means something.
And plus it's
another week for appearance fees
and I know that those go a long way.
- Yeah.
So, just trust the process.
- Okay.
- Okay?
- Okay, great.
- Awesome.
- All right.
- Can we roll on the OTF?
- Yeah.
- Great, all right.
- Roll.
- And,
go ahead, Jess.
Tell us how you feel.
- How am I feeling?
I'm definitely frustrated
I didn't win the obstacle
course today, but you know what?
There's always tomorrow.
I'm gonna push through,
get my time with Garret and
show him why I'm worth it.
- It was magical.
We rode horses on the beach.
I told him all about my
childhood trauma, my family,
and I said that I could really
see myself falling in love with him.
Jess, can you
come with me for a second?
- Sure.
- Hey.
- Hi.
- So, I just spoke with Patrick
and Nicki and they told
me you weren't feeling
so into this whole process.
- No, I do.
I am.
I'm just-
- I totally understand.
- You do?
- Between you and me,
I also think this whole thing is bullshit.
- Really?
Of course.
After 25 seasons, how many Beaus
are actually still married?
Come on.
We all know why we're here.
Oh, don't worry, you're safe.
- Look, it's not you.
It's just there are so many
girls and all these rules
and hoops to jump through,
and no one is themselves on camera.
- Trust me, I totally understand.
You don't know the half of it.
- You would not believe how
refreshing that is to hear.
I mean, I was going crazy.
- Well, you are not.
Let's see this for what it is.
It's a paid vacation.
We'll have some fun.
We'll eat the free food.
We'll laugh at all the idiots
who actually buy into this shit.
What do you say?
- Okay.
- Okay.
This is hard, ladies.
I wish I could keep you both
here, but I have to choose one.
Abigail, I had such a good
time on our date tonight.
Hearing about your love for the show
and seeing your competitive
drive, truly inspiring.
But I'm looking for the one,
and right now I just, I
don't think that's you.
So, Jess, may I have this dance?
- Yeah, of course.
- And cut.
That's a wrap on Abigail, everybody.
- Ice it, Abigail.
Brutal, Dalton.
- Like I had a choice.
Where do these girls go once
they're cutting anyways?
- We take them to a holding wing.
Keep them sequestered from
the rest of production.
Jesus, sounds miserable.
- Just until we wrap.
Keep them around in case
we need any more interviews
or to make sure nothing leaks.
Don't worry, you won't be
seeing these girls over again.
Hey, Gar, can I
talk to you for a second?
- Yeah, anything for the boss.
- I am so sorry.
I don't know what to say.
- Go away.
I said leave me alone!
- I'd kill for a spa date.
- I'd kill for a date period.
- Hey, have you used yours yet?
Mine's been pretty useless.
- Oh, I've just been taking
photos to show Leylah.
Oh, there we are.
- What do you mean?
- All the phones have
location tracking on.
It's kind of fun, huh?
- That's disturbing.
- Oh, hey Jess.
We're just doing a quick check in
while Garret's on his group date.
Can you ask Chloe how
she's feeling about Garret?
- Sure.
So Chloe, how are you feeling
about Garret these days?
I know it sounds crazy,
but I could really see myself
falling in love with him.
I know.
- Well, that's great, Chloe.
- Perfect, yeah.
- I'm so happy for you.
- Thanks, girl.
How 'bout you?
- And hold for camera.
Go ahead, Jess.
- To be honest, I don't know.
I mean, we keep having these moments
where I think there's a little chemistry,
but I don't know what's real
and what's manufactured at this point.
And I've never been away
from my daughter for this long before.
I think that's been on my
mind almost more than Garret.
You know what?
I'd like to call my daughter, please.
- Well, you would need
permission from Bill to do that,
so we'll just keep rolling.
- Well, where's Bill?
- He's busy at the moment,
but I can pass a message
along if you like?
On two.
- Hey.
- Hey, what's up?
Where were you?
- Have you guys seen Abigail
or anyone else who's been eliminated?
- No, but I mean, that's kinda the point.
They're gone, dead to us.
- But they haven't left
the island yet, have they?
- No one except for that pageant psycho.
They're all in holding.
- What's holding?
- It was in our contracts.
Everyone has to stay on the island
till the end of principal photography.
So when you get eliminated,
you go to holding.
- Haven't you seen all
the minions running around
with their little plates of food?
I heard they're not allowed
to have any books in there but a Bible.
- Kinda sounds like a prison.
- I mean, prisoners
are getting more action
than we are these days.
Anyway, what's this about?
- I feel like there's
something shady going on.
Something they're not telling us about.
- Like what?
- Like how Hannah left the
island when she was supposed
to stay till the end of filming,
and how people just disappear
once they've been eliminated.
- I don't know, Jess.
I mean, they've been running
this show for a long time.
Everyone seems fine.
I think we just need to trust the process.
- I don't trust anyone.
- Okay, look, I don't have
time for your bullshit.
There's no conspiracy.
It's just Garret and us.
And I suggest you focus on that
so you don't disappear too.
- Where's holding?
- What's your 20?
- So Bill, did you get a chance
to watch that thing that I sent you?
The Vimeo link?
- I haven't had the time.
- Okay, well, I actually really
think you'd appreciate this.
- Hey, kiddo, I'm gonna
stop you right now.
I'm never gonna watch your short.
Shorts are stupid, they're boring.
Please stop asking.
It's just embarrassing.
Why are you even here?
Shouldn't you be at the spa date?
Oh , yeah.
Just heading over there now, Bill.
- Abigail?
It's me, Jess.
- You're not supposed to be in here.
- I was just checking on Abigail.
I wanted to make sure she was okay.
- I'm afraid she's gone.
- Sorry?
- They just sent all the sequestered girls
away this morning.
They're on their way back to the mainland.
- Seriously?
Just now they left?
- That's what they told me.
- Look, you better get
back to the mansion,
and just make sure nobody sees you.
- Of course.
Thanks, Lance.
Come on.
- They need you back down on
set for a breakup interview.
They said if you're too tired though,
we can totally get it tomorrow.
It's no problem.
- No worries.
I'll come down.
Are you gonna direct this one?
Bill would kill me.
- Hey, can I ask you
something just between us?
- Of course.
- I just, I feel like
there's something going on
that they're not telling us about.
- Is this about Hannah?
- Yes.
And the girls that went to the spa date,
they disappeared too.
- Ah, look, there's not
much I can tell you,
but nobody knows what exactly is going on,
and they told us to keep our mouths shut.
- Well, what does that mean?
- Megan!
What did I say about the
firewood in the Lover's Lodge?
- I'm going there now.
They just need me to
grab Jess for a pickup.
- I'm gonna head to set.
Talk to you see, Maya?
- Okay, it sounds to me
like you know my show better than I do.
- No, Sir.
- Good.
That's good.
Because there are 200
desperate NYU students
that would take your job for
half the pay in a second.
We're one night away
from the Lover's Lodge.
Needs to be perfect.
- Yes, Sir.
Last looks at the Lover's Lodge.
Call time is six a.m. tomorrow.
- Copy that.
Bill, go to two.
Why the fuck does no one
ever pick up their walkie?
It's nothing.
It's nothing.
Go home.
Take a shower, get some food.
- Why are we here?
The Breakup Session isn't till tonight.
- No idea.
- Hello, ladies.
You're looking beautiful this morning.
- And rolling.
- You're probably wondering,
where are the other girls?
Where is the competition?
Well, I've got some good news for you.
Garret has decided to eliminate
all three girls from the spa date,
which means you three
are the final girls
left on "Love at Last."
- And Jess, Garret
wanted you to have this.
Garret will see you
tonight in the courtyard
for a very special date.
- Come in.
our matron saint.
Please come on in, sit.
Can I get you a drink?
If you're tired of rum, we have vodka.
- No, no thank you.
- All right.
What can I do for you?
- I wanna go home.
- Really?
You've made it so far.
- I know, and I'm so grateful
for everything the show has done
and for all my time here,
but I just-
- You wanna go home,
see your family, be with your daughter?
- Yes.
- Totally get it.
I'm assuming you've
discussed this with Garret.
- Well, no, actually.
- I think he's gonna be pretty
upset to hear you're leaving.
I mean, he's let us know
he's very excited about your date tonight.
- Did he say that?
- Yeah.
You're surprised?
- We've hardly even talked.
- Jess, I think you're a smart enough girl
to know not to conflate the quantity
of time spent with the Beau
with the quality of time spent.
I think you might be undervaluing
the degree of the connection
that you've made with Mr. Dalton.
- Okay, I just call it like I see it.
- Like you see it?
Right, but that's not the way we see it.
In a place like this,
wouldn't you agree that we might see
maybe just a little bit more than you do?
- I'd call that an understatement.
- Jess, I'm gonna show you something
I'm not supposed to show you.
- There is this one girl, Jess.
She's different.
She's not into any of
the shallow games here.
I haven't talked to her that much,
but I can't stop thinking about her.
She's got this strength,
this depth that none of the
other girls here seem to have.
I see the way she carries herself,
even when she doesn't know
I'm looking, you know?
All the other girls are fixing
their hair and their makeup,
camera's about to roll,
and Jess doesn't do that.
She's helping them.
She's focused on them, supporting them.
She sees the world as
something bigger than herself,
and I just can't wait to
get to know her better.
- So, you have every
right to go home today
if that's what you want,
but think of it this way.
Has any man ever talked
about you like that?
Has your ex-husband ever
talked about you like that?
No, he didn't.
- Well, say what you want about this show.
At the end of the day,
we do connect people.
And you've made it so far.
Do you really wanna
miss out an opportunity
to make a connection like this?
All right, nothing crazy.
First generation college
student, little left of center.
Parents are estranged, so
family means like a lot to her.
- Why must every single mom on these shows
make their entire
personality, "I'm a mom!"
Never heard her talk
about a daughter once, honestly.
- Where's the dad?
- He's outta the picture.
- How old's her kid?
- Seven.
Knocked up young, huh?
Well, I can't wait to hear
the whole story tonight.
I'm crying already.
Look, I have kept her around
long enough for you two.
Why must I keep doing this song and dance?
- Okay, settle down, Dalton.
The network loves her.
And you may not be seeing it,
but we're actually getting good stuff.
They wanna bring Hannah in
for an after show cat fight.
- Oh, please.
I am so bored.
Just let me leave this island.
- Does that mean that you picked a winner?
- Chloe, Madison, whatever.
Either way, we're gonna go to The Bahamas,
we're gonna fuck for a week,
we're gonna break up on Instagram,
and then we're gonna go our separate ways.
I don't care.
- "Love at Last" Nation cares.
America cares.
All right, Garret.
When your mother came to
us after the whole incident
with the intern at Daddy's company,
she only gave us one
instruction, make you look good.
You wanna look good, don't you?
- What's more admirable
than a man who's willing
to give anyone a shot at love?
- Or a man who's grateful
there isn't footage airing
of him acting like an asshole?
- Fine.
Tell me what I gotta do.
- Someone's giddy.
- I'm not giddy.
I'm just excited.
- Have you picked a dress yet?
- I saw what you did, and I can't, Chloe.
It's too much.
- What are you talking about?
- This sexy number.
I found it in my suitcase,
but I never packed it.
I mean, when did you sneak it in?
- I wish I would've picked this out.
- Wait, you didn't put it in there?
- No, it looks like someone else did.
Here, there's a note.
I didn't see this.
Who was it?
- My idiot brother.
I guess they ordered this
when we found out the news.
It's just too much.
I can't.
- Look, I know I'm
technically your competition,
but I am so happy for you.
You deserve this.
Look, tonight is gonna
be one of those nights
you remember for the rest of your life.
I can feel it.
- Okay.
Yep, that looks good.
Okay. You ready, Garret?
All right, speeding.
And action, Jess.
Holy shit.
- Holy shit.
I've been waiting
for this moment for such a long time.
- Me too.
- And then little Devin, he
raises his hand and he says,
"Mr. Dalton, are you
pullin' my blockchain?"
That is so sweet.
- Yeah, they're fun.
Enough about me.
Tell me about your daughter.
- Uh, Leylah.
- Leylah is seven years old,
and I love her to death.
But to be honest-
- Just like Cyrano.
- she can be quite a handful.
She's headstrong, stubborn.
She always gets what she wants.
She must get
that from her mother.
- She must get that from you.
I think you might be right.
Ask about her ex-husband.
- I know divorce can be so hard on kids.
It must have been very
tough on her, and on you.
- Well, it wasn't easy.
- If I can ask what happened?
- You know, I've gone over
it over and over again,
and the only explanation
I could come up with
is that he just wasn't ready to be a dad.
And once Leylah came, everything changed.
We went from being a
couple to being a family,
and his role changed.
And I don't think he could handle it.
And something about fatherhood brought out
his insecurities and
shortcomings, and so he left.
- I'm so sorry, Jess.
I can't imagine that level of betrayal.
- It definitely made it
hard to get back out there.
And I keep having this fear, you know?
This gnawing, creeping fear
that I'm depriving Leylah
of the father figure she needs,
that I'm not enough for her.
- Well,
I want you to know that I would be honored
to be that man in Leylah's life.
- This is so fucking cruel.
- Wait for it.
- And I would be even more honored
to be the man in your life.
- Wow.
I think that's the first kiss
I've had in like three years.
- Well, there's funny
more where that came from.
Hold, hold.
And cut.
That's a wrap on the date.
Company move to the Breakup Session
and then onto Lover's Lodge.
Let's boogie.
- Right.
That's a
wrap for the end of the day.
- That was fun. See you soon.
- Okay.
Hey, have you seen Maya around?
- Who?
- Maya?
Do you know what she's been up to?
- Oh, I think Bill sent her
to the mainland for a supply run.
But don't worry,
she's not anybody you need
to concern yourself with.
- Ladies,
for two of you, tonight will
be a very special night.
If you are chosen, you will be
one of Garret's final picks,
and you will have the
opportunity to get to know
your Beau a little more
intimately at the Lover's Lodge.
However, for one of you,
your journey must end here.
- All of you have touched me
in very special ways.
Unfortunately, I'm not the
one pulling the strings here.
I can only choose two of
you to move on with me.
Madison, may I have this dance?
- Definitely.
- Chloe, no matter what happens,
I love you and I want the best for you.
- Chloe.
Oh my God, oh my God.
- Chloe, may I have this dance?
- A thousand times yes.
- Jess!
Leave me alone!
Stay on her.
- Leave me alone.
I don't wanna talk anymore.
- I know, I know.
But maybe there's someone
you do wanna talk to.
- Seriously?
10 minutes.
- Okay.
- Sis, yo!
What time is it over there?
Hey, I see you got my present.
- Gabe, you asshole.
How much did this dress cost?
- Well, we all chipped in a little bit.
You gotta make us look good on TV.
Hey, Leylah, come here.
Say hi to your mom.
- Mommy.
Are you inside the TV?
- Oh yeah, sweetie.
I'm inside the TV.
- Will they ever let you out?
- Yes, I promise.
In fact, I'm actually getting out tonight.
- Really?
I love you so much, and I cannot
wait to see you and anaku.
- I miss you too.
- Dude, we are a mess without you.
I'm apparently cutting
the sandwiches wrong
and my bedtime stories are stupid.
Come home soon.
Leylah misses her mom.
- I will, 'kay?
- You okay, sis?
I gotta go now, okay?
I love you so much.
- I love you, too.
- You shouldn't have done that.
- Feel free to send me home.
- Watch it, Jess.
Worse things have happened to contestants
who didn't follow the rules.
- Oh, shit.
- Everything you told me,
everything you said on camera?
- I thought we both agreed
this whole thing is bullshit?
- Yeah, then, but I mean,
things changed, right?
Oh, sweetie.
Look, we set the ground
rules, okay?
I mean, if you got
caught up in the candles
and champagne and
chandeliers, that's on you.
I'm glad we had our fun.
You never know when your time's up, right?
- All right, Jess, come on.
Let's get you to holding.
- Nicki?
- What?
- You're really good at your job.
I hope it makes you happy,
and I'm not going anywhere with you.
- Yep, she's on the move.
- Tonight is a very special night.
As our contestants get to
spend some quality time
with their Beau at "Love at
Last's" own cabin in the woods,
the Lover's Lodge.
This is the chance for our contestants
to show their connection with the Beau
a little more intimately.
No cameras, no crew,
just our Beau and his lucky
lady in complete privacy.
Here's to a night Garret
and Chloe will never forget.
- Hey,
can I talk to you?
I thought the shuttle was
coming in the morning.
- I have nowhere else to go.
- Look, I wanted to apologize.
I'm sorry.
I'm not usually this person.
- I get it.
We're all here to put on a show.
- Actually, no, that's what
I'm trying to tell you.
I haven't been honest about
why I'm actually here.
- What do you mean?
- Look, I think I can trust you.
That's the only reason
I'm telling you this,
and I need your help.
- Well, what is it?
- So,
Garret and I went to college together,
but our paths never crossed.
this wig seems to be working,
so he doesn't know.
Anyway, my senior year in college,
he became obsessed with my best friend.
They met at a party and she rejected him.
And of course, he couldn't
take no for an answer.
So he followed her back to
our apartment and he, he...
- My God, Madison.
- It ruined her.
And his family has access to everything,
so they buried the story.
They discredited her.
She had to drop out of school.
And of course, nothing happened to him.
- That's awful.
I'm so sorry.
- No,
I'm sorry for everything
that I have said to you,
and done to you.
I'm just trying to get closer to Garret.
- To do what, though?
- I'm gonna win his heart
and ruin him on national television.
So far everything has gone
as planned, except tonight.
I thought I was going first.
- Chloe.
- Chloe.
Right now, she's alone
in that cabin with him.
- Let's go.
- Oh my God, Garret, it's amazing.
- Yeah, well, it took
me forever to set it up,
but I have waited so long for this.
- I hope it was worth it.
- It will be,
if you can do something for me.
- Okay?
- I have a special surprise for you.
- Okay.
- I will be at the other
end of this ribbon,
and you'll come find me.
No peaking.
I think I might be a little overdressed.
Okay, okay, I'm in the water now.
You've got me.
Where are you?
Oh, there you are.
- Chloe!
- Wish I could lose
eight pounds that fast.
- You two didn't see anyone
coming outta the cabin?
- No, we went straight to Chloe.
She was in shock.
- Like we said, we heard screaming,
we ran over, and when we got there,
we found Marie Antoinette in the hot tub.
- Why do you look different?
Thank you both so much.
Please let me know if there's
anything I could do for you.
- Well, where's Chloe by the way?
- And what about the cops?
- Just sit tight.
They're on their way from the mainland.
- How do you know? Have
you talked to them?
- Just sit tight.
Hey, guys.
So, do you know? When's the wrap party?
- What?
- We haven't wrapped.
- No, so why the fuck aren't we shooting?
Seriously, how many
hours of bullshit footage
do we have of ambulances
pulling in and out?
Nothing's happening.
Something is actually happening right now.
Grab some cameras.
- Bill, you know I can't do that.
The crew's never gonna-
- I've already arranged for the crew
to be on the first shuttle outta here.
I'm not fuckin' with them.
They're a union.
But you guys are staying here with me.
- You can't be serious.
- You wanna be an executive producer?
Either one of you?
Prove it.
I'm calling the network, I'm
calling the insurance company.
You guys grab some footage,
get the crew outta here.
Keep the girls quiet.
- Oh, fuck, the girls.
What are we gonna do with them?
- I just told you what to do.
Get some footage.
Girls aren't goin' anywhere.
- Fuck me.
Move, Patrick!
- Sorry.
- I wanna go home.
- I know.
- We're almost there, sweetie.
It's okay.
- Seriously?
- The fuck do you think you're doing?
- Hey, you signed a contract.
So until you leave the island,
we have a right to keep filming, okay?
- What's wrong with you?
Look, someone has died.
- She clearly needs medical attention.
What the hell are we waiting for?
- We're working on it.
As soon as the boat gets back
after dropping off the crew,
we'll all be on the next one out.
- Wait, the next one?
Are you kidding me?
- Look, it's not my call.
Bill's keeping us on the island
until we can figure it out, okay?
Just hang tight.
- Garret wasn't the only one.
- What do you mean?
- Hannah, Abigail, Maya.
All these girls
disappeared without a trace
and no one has said anything.
There's a killer on this island,
and they're still with us.
- I wanna go home.
- We're gonna get you home.
- Patrick, please, put
Chloe on the cruise shuttle.
She needs to see a doctor.
- Shh!
Keep your voice down.
- Patrick, she just witnessed
a decapitation on your watch.
When we get home and we start
the circus of interviews,
how do you wanna come off?
- Okay, but if Bill asks,
no one saw anything.
Do you understand?
- Thank you.
- Okay, you're almost home.
We're gonna call you as
soon as we get back, okay?
- Thank you guys, for everything.
- We will see you on the other side.
- Is this everyone?
- Yeah.
Well, what's going on?
- They're just having a safety meeting.
- It's a little late for
that, don't you think?
- Hello?
Hello everybody, hi.
I just, if I could have your attention.
Come on a little closer.
I know that the season's
been cut short ,
but yeah, I just, I
wanted to say thank you.
I wanted to thank each
and every one of you.
If we didn't have a crew,
we wouldn't have a show.
So, Nicki?
- Oh, yeah.
Yeah, and I
know that we're going
through an awful lot right now,
but it wouldn't be "Love
at Last" without champagne,
so everybody grab a glass
and raise a toast to you,
to the crew, to the
backbone of "Love at Last,"
and to the memory of Garret Dalton.
Anyway, cheers.
- Give me that.
- We got the good stuff in the back.
Oh my God, what's happening?
- Oh my God.
- What the fuck is going on?
- My God!
- Holy shit.
- Do something.
What am I supposed to do?
- Where's Bill?
- The champagne, it's the champagne.
Oh, Chloe!
- Okay, we need a boat, we
need a plane, we need...
We need to
get the fuck out of here.
- Look, can we get our phone back?
- I can at least try something on mine.
- What?
Yeah, of course.
They're just over in holding.
- No one leaves this room.
- Bill!
- No one leaves this room.
We stay here together,
we keep our hands where we can see them,
and then when the rescue boat
arrives, we leave together.
Got it?
- Fuck this.
Hello? Can you hear me?
- Madison?
- Hey.
- Is everything okay?
- Yeah.
Look, I'm sorry I left like that.
I just couldn't stand around
knowing that someone in there-
- I know.
I can't shake the question why?
Chloe's dead.
The crew's dead.
Garret is dead.
I mean, who else has a
reason to kill anyone here?
- What are you saying?
- Look, I want to trust you Madison,
but I need to know.
- You need to know what?
There's nothing left to say.
Hey, can you hear me?
We need help.
We're Oxley Island.
What the?
Wait, stop.
No, fuck!
- Rolling.
- Untie me, you asshole.
- Congratulations, Jess Rose.
You are the final girl
in the historic 25th
season of "Love at Last."
How does it feel?
- Patrick, all those people?
Oh, you don't even know.
Let me, let me get you caught up to speed.
- No, no.
Fuck! Hello?
And you're the grand finale.
- Why?
Why would you?
- Uh, 10 years in this
God forsaken industry.
I mean, 10 miserable,
fucking miserable years.
Do you think that I ever
wanted to work in reality TV?
- You're a monster.
- I'm...
Well, at least now I get to
be my own executive producer.
I just had to, you know,
switch up the genre.
It's really not that different
when you think about it.
Let me go, please.
I never wanted to be here.
I just wanna be home.
I have a daughter.
- I know.
That's what made you so interesting.
I was rooting for you the whole time.
You're not like all
these other girls, Jess,
which is why I'm gonna
give you the choice,
how you die.
That's an interesting choice.
I respect it.
- Hey!
Where is everybody?
Nobody came to get me.
Oh, God!
- Lance!
I can't believe those
bastards forgot about me.
I have been the face of this
franchise from Season 1,
and everybody leaves without me?
- I'm so glad you didn't leave.
let's get outta here.
- Oh, God!
We haven't wrapped yet.
What the fuck?
- Jess?
We're not finished.
I was wrong.
You're all the same.
All you girls are the same.
You're just,
Pathetic, pathetic,
predictable, predictable actors.
Come to this island
pretending it's for love
but let's just cut the bullshit!
You just wanna be famous.
I'm just helping you get what you want!
I mean, think about it.
What's more famous than a
young, beautiful, dead girl?
- Fuck.
- Careful, Patrick.
Hot points.
- Jess?
- Lance!
- You know what?
This was definitely the
most dramatic season ever.
- Oh, Lance, I think I'm ready to ho home.
- Yes, me too.
- It's like a ghost town here.
- The team did their job.
Can't complain.
That's everything?
- Every gigabyte.
What about the girl?
- We threw so many
lawyers down her throat,
if she even threatens to break her NDA,
we'll sue her into oblivion.
Hm, well then,
I guess that's everything.
- Good.
Let's get outta here.
I hate comin' to set.
You hungry?
I know a great fish taco
place on the mainland.
Sounds good.
I wanna pitch you some
ideas for the next season.
