The Killing Pact (2017) Movie Script

- Hit me.
- Another round?
- Hold on.
- Hello?
- Hey baby.
- What do you want?
- I need my money.
- You're drunk.
- And you're a month
behind, I need my alimony.
- I don't owe you
anything til next month, Jerry.
- Hayley!
It's an emergency.
- Are you kidding me?
I'm barely making things
work with both of these jobs.
- Can you just
lend me the money?
I'll get it back to you.
You know I'm good for it.
- No Jerry, you're
not good for it.
You not good for...
- Hayley!
Don't you hang up on me.
I will come over there.
I will come over there...
- I'm sorry, Jerry.
- Hayley!
- Was that Jerry?
- Just go back up to bed, okay?
You wanna sleep in here tonight?
- Are you gonna call the police?
- No.
It's just your dad, okay.
- But he won't stop calling.
- Yeah, I know.
Just get some sleep, alright.
- Okay.
- Come on.
- Okay.
- Senorita Lisa,
I cannot make this work,
the fabric is shredded...
- Speak English.
Melanie, a word.
- What can I do for you, Lisa?
- Remind me when dress
rehearsal starts.
- An hour.
- Oh, and you're not ready.
And your sole purpose
for being here
is to make sure we'll be ready.
- Well, we'll be ready.
- I just passed
several idle workers.
Unfinished set pieces and
a seamstress so distraught
because the only costume for
this performance is ruined.
Not to mention Gretchen,
clumsy Gretchen,
who broke her leg last
week because she didn't
know the dance
routine well enough.
- I don't...
- I thought that you had
some pride in this theater
and what it stands for.
I certainly do.
And to think how hard
that I have worked
only to have it all fall apart.
- It won't.
- And then you have your
nose attached to that thing.
- It's the budget...
- Unaware that the world
is crumbling around you.
- Um, I have a delivery
for the theater.
- We'll be ready.
- Oh?
The main costume is ruined
and I happen to know
you don't have a spare.
- Well actually, I...
- I know what you're
trying to do, Melanie.
I know how you feel about me,
and you seem to
think that that means
you can take and take and take.
- I don't mean to interrupt,
I just need a...
- Don't try to sabotage
me or this theater
by not doing your job.
- I'm not.
- Not doing your job.
Good, I'm glad you admit it.
It's time that you earn
your keep, Melanie.
Now I am going to
be in my office,
and I don't want to be
disturbed for 15 minutes.
- Hi, I just need a
quick signature here.
- Have my niece do it?
- Who's her niece?
- I am.
- Oh, great.
I just need a signature
right here, please.
- Yeah.
- Thank you.
- Okay.
- There you go, you
have a good day.
- You too.
- Is that the
costume replacements?
- Yep.
- Yes.
- I don't understand.
- Sorry Kevin, it's what
the board has decided.
- But Mark said
that I'm the best...
- Honestly Kevin, there
are at least three
much stronger candidates
up for this position.
The board felt that...
- Are you sure that it
was the board that felt,
but not you Sarah?
- I don't know what
you're implying.
- [Kevin Are you sure this
isn't about that Night
you and I...
- I have no clue what
you're talking about.
- Come on, Sarah.
- Grow up.
- Grow up.
- Oh, everything okay?
- Sorry, another
charming moment with my boss.
Lousy day.
- Yeah, me too.
You wanna go out for drinks?
- Yeah, I'm in.
- Hayley, I'm just
finishing up now, so.
- Oh great, great.
- Do you want help?
- No, I'm good, I'm
about ready to lock up.
- Okay, see ya.
- Thank you!
- Hey Jamie.
- Mom, uh, remember how I told
you I had a really big report
for my English class?
- Yeah, if you're not
too busy working tonight,
maybe you can help me.
- No no no no, no.
This is your homework.
I can't do that again, okay.
It's meant for you to learn.
- Fine.
- You know what, I will proofread
it though in the morning.
How 'bout that?
- When will you be here?
- Uh, well I don't have
any rideshares tonight,
so I mean it really shouldn't...
Hang on, just a sec.
Alright, one just came in.
Okay, I gotta take it, so.
There's some leftovers
in the fridge, alright.
- Okay.
- I'm sorry.
- It's fine, we need the money.
- Yeah.
Hey, get started on
your paper, alright?
- I will.
- Okay.
- She looks at me with
this seductive face,
like of course she is.
It makes no sense otherwise.
Everything she's doing is
on purpose, and I know it.
- Hey!
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Do you think
she's doing it on purpose?
- So, um, are you Kevin?
- Yep, that's me.
- So, uh, 345
East Hooper Street,
we still going there?
- Yep, that's the one.
- It'll all work out.
- I'm not so sure anymore.
At least not as long as
we're working together.
It's a nightmare.
- Do you know what,
I'm really sorry,
I gotta take this,
it's important.
Jerry, I know you're there.
You called me, please just talk.
- Where are you?
- I'm working.
- You shouldn't be on the
phone while you're driving.
- What do you want?
- I want you
to say your sorry for
hanging up on me last night.
- Come on, Jerry.
- Say you're sorry for
hanging up on me last night!
- I'm sorry for hanging
up on you last night.
- Good.
Now, say it again and
mean it this time.
- Can you excuse me, for
just a second, thanks.
- Wow, what do you
think that was about?
- No idea.
- I'm sorry, I'm
sorry about that.
- No problem.
- It's okay, though.
I know a way that we
can get there fast.
- Is everything okay?
That sounded serious.
- Yeah, thank goodness for
restraining orders, right?
- Well if you have
a restraining order,
they probably shouldn't
be calling you, huh?
- No, they shouldn't,
should they?
- Hey, we're going out
for drinks, come with us.
- That's really sweet of
you, but I have a daughter.
- Look, Kevin and I have
both had colossal suck days.
- Mhm.
- Yeah.
We're both just gonna
go get a little drunk
and exchange sob stories.
You need to come with us.
It'll be like group therapy.
Besides, there's a
big tip involved.
- Okay.
Okay yeah, let me just
check in with my kid.
- Okay.
- Yeah!
- She made it crystal clear
that it was a one night thing.
What'd she say, something
about executives
can't be seen
cavorting with peons.
- Hayley, you sure you
don't want a drink.
- Oh no, I'm driving.
- And I was like okay, fine.
Whatever, I was good with it.
But then, not a week later,
I think they called
it budget cuts,
but I got a pay cut.
And then I got transferred
to the call center.
Wait wait, management,
but still, come on.
The call center?
Like for the past year I've
been working my butt off
to get back to where I was,
but every time I put in for
a transfer, it gets rejected.
Every time I'm up for a
promotion, passed over.
And she came on to me.
- There are people
in everyone's lives
who'd make the world a better
place by simply dropping dead.
- So true.
- Sarah Olsen, you
weren't worth it anyway.
- All right, so we've
heard about Kevin's boss,
we've heard about my aunt Lisa.
- No, no, you don't wanna
hear about my sob story.
- Oh yes we do.
- Yeah.
- So,
I took my daughter and left
my now ex-husband, Jerry.
And in the middle of our
really messy divorce,
he got in an accident which
left him in a wheelchair.
So he's been declared disabled.
He was unable to work,
so his lawyers used that
to get a large
alimony out of me.
So now I kill myself every
month to get him money
which he uses for his
gambling addiction,
which of course is never enough.
So he's constantly showing up,
calling me, threatening me,
begging me, and pretty
much doing whatever he can
to make my life a living hell.
- I'm sorry.
Why not just call the cops?
- Oh, I did call the police.
I used to call
them all the time.
But you guys don't know Jerry.
He has everyone fooled.
And the cops, they don't
wanna be seen being tough
on a guy in a wheelchair.
No matter how much
of a monster he is.
- Sometimes when
everything is piling up
on me and I feel like I'll
be trapped that way forever,
there is this idea that
keeps coming back, and.
- Ah, not this again.
- Alright, alright, alright.
- What.
- Now, what if you
get a group of people
who are absolutely
sick of their lives
and you have them enter
into a pack to improve
each other's lives, no
matter what it would take.
- But what if they can't
improve each other's lives?
What if your life
cannot be improved
by the actions of
another person?
- Well sometimes, all it takes
is someone else's perspective
to improve things.
- Someone like you?
- Yeah.
- Well that sounds wonderful,
but it would be illegal
to do what it takes
to fix my life.
- I think it would be
illegal to do what it takes
to fix any of our lives.
- Illegal, maybe,
unjustified, no.
- Okay, wait a minute.
Are you suggesting what I
think you're suggesting?
- It's so simple.
Can't you see it?
Right, I help Kevin.
Kevin helps Hayley.
Hayley helps me.
- By doing what?
- Whatever it takes.
Face it, these people
are never gonna stop
making our lives miserable.
You think they're
gonna wake up one day
and see the light?
People don't change.
So, I will take Kevin's boss.
Kevin, you take Hayley's ex.
Hayley, you take my Aunt Lisa.
Bam, our lives are
infinitely better, hm?
- What?
- You keep saying take,
what exactly are you saying?
- I want you guys
to think about it.
I'm just, I'm gonna
get another drink.
- It's on me.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- What's your name?
- Sorry about your ex.
Sounds like a real...
- Yeah.
- You deserve better than that.
- We just met.
How do you know what I deserve?
- Okay, fine,
let me rephrase it.
I would like for you
to be with someone
who's better than Jerry.
- I'm sorry about
your situation, too.
Have you thought about
just switching jobs?
- Yeah,
but then again, why should
I be the one to move?
- True.
- I dunno, maybe I'm just
being petty about it.
- No.
- I dunno, maybe I should
just let the past go.
Look to brighter things.
- Did you
guys want anything from the bar?
- No, no, I'm good, thank you.
- Did you
think about what I said?
- About what?
- Working together to
solve our problems.
- No, she's kidding.
- Am I?
- Okay, this is exactly
what I'm talking about.
This is what I call a classic
Melanie moment, all talk.
- Doesn't have to be.
- Okay, here's a deal for you.
If you have the guts to
first, which I know you don't,
then you can count me in.
- Don't say it if
you don't mean it.
- Hmm?
- What do you think?
Imagine waking up and
not having that dread
follow you around every moment.
- It would be, it'd be
really nice, but come on.
Let's be serious.
- I am.
- Sure, I'm completely serious
about needing another drink.
- You know what, I, I really,
I need to get back.
Are you two ready?
- Umm actually, I'm going
to stay a bit longer.
- Really?
- And here is my part
of the fare home.
- Oh no no no, that's,
that's too much.
- Okay, you know
what, here you go.
You two have fun.
- Oh, okay.
- See you later.
Alright look, Melanie,
she gets these ideas.
And she just gets really
excited about 'em,
and really doesn't think
'em all the way through.
- Huh.
- And her situation...
It's a lot worse than mine.
But she'll drop it by morning.
That's how it always works.
- So, you and Melanie, are you?
- No, no.
No no no, not us.
No, we're just
friends, that's it.
- Where'd you guys meet?
- The bar, actually.
Yeah, I think we had both
had a pretty terrible day.
- Mm.
- Come in to drink
down our sorrows,
and then we met, talked,
clicked, you know.
- But not romantically.
- No, not with Melanie.
Well not with anyone
for that matter.
How 'bout you?
- Um.
I don't know.
I'm just starting to
wonder if I could ever
really do the whole
relationship thing again.
After Jerry.
- You still love him?
- No, I don't.
I don't.
I really, I need to get home.
- Got it, totally cool.
Okay, would you maybe
wanna pick this up again,
say, maybe tomorrow?
- Tomorrow?
Well, I actually have work.
My other job tomorrow.
- Right, yeah.
- And then I had
promised my daughter
that I'd help her
with her homework.
- Cool, totally.
- But, uh, Sunday, maybe?
- Really?
- Yeah Sunday.
- Yeah, Sunday, perfect.
- Yeah.
- Alright.
- Great, Kevin.
- Yes, Kevin.
Okay, Sunday it is.
I will see you then.
- Leonidas, how come I
don't know who that is.
- It's history.
It's some Greek king
that fought in a battle
against the Martians.
- It was the Spartans,
yeah, I got it.
- Wanna read what I have so far?
- Sure.
Okay, Leonidas.
- So tomorrow.
- Mhmm.
- You have a date?
- He's just a friend.
- That you just met.
- Right, and I'm just
getting to know him.
- Isn't that a date?
- Okay, yes, I
guess it's a date.
- Good, I mean, he's
not a jerk, right?
- I hope not.
I guess we'll find out, huh?
- Can't be any worse than Jerry.
- Yeah, probably not.
Hey, you know just
because I call him Jerry
that doesn't meant
that you have to.
He is still your dad.
- Not anymore.
You have fun on your date, okay?
- Thanks, and you have
fun with your Spartians.
- Hello.
- Hey, it's Kevin.
- Hey, I'm just about
ready actually, so I can...
- Yeah, umm, about
that, look, something's come up.
I'm not like this, but
it's, it's important.
- Okay.
Yeah, I understand.
- Thanks, I'm sorry.
- Yeah.
- Here you go,
alright yeah, no problem.
- Hayley Udall?
- Yeah, she's at the front.
- Ah.
Hayley Udall.
- Yeah.
- I'm Detective Marcs, Metro PD.
I have a few questions for you.
- Is this about Jerry?
- No ma'am, do you
know a Kevin Moore?
- Kevin, yeah.
- When was the last
time you saw Kevin?
- Uh, Friday, Friday night.
- At what time did you see him?
- I'd say it was 8 to
a little past midnight.
Yeah, that's when I dropped
him off at his place.
- Where had you been?
- We went to a bar.
I don't remember the name of it.
It was on Hooper Street.
- So other people saw you there?
- Yeah.
I'm sorry, can I ask you
what this is all about?
- I can't really give
you that information
at this point, but
thanks for your time.
- You've reached
Kevin, please leave a message.
- Hey Kevin, this is Hayley.
Listen, the police
came by and they were
asking some questions.
I just wanted to make
sure that you were okay.
Call me.
- Sarah Olsen, you
weren't worth it anyway.
- Hi, this is Melanie.
Leave a message and
I'll call you back
as soon as I can.
- Hi Melanie, this is
Hayley from Friday night.
Can you give me a call
when you get this please?
Thank you.
- We make a pact to improve
things for each of us.
No matter what it would take.
Alright, I help Kevin,
Kevin helps Hayley,
and Hayley helps me.
- Hey, I can't
talk right now Hayley.
- Kevin, hey, what's going on?
- I'm sorry.
Sarah's dead, now I
don't have a choice.
I'm so sorry.
- What?
- Kevin?
Jerry come on.
Pick up.
Please pick up.
- What?
- Okay, you're okay.
What do you want?
- I think that you might
be in danger maybe.
- Is that some kind of a threat?
No, but I really, I need
you to listen to me please.
- I still owe you a
visit for hanging up on me.
- Jerry, hey hey, where are you?
- I'm at
physical therapy, stupid.
- No.
- Oh no.
- Oh, what the hell, man.
Watch where you're going.
- Hey Jamie, I'm gonna
run a quick errand okay.
I'll be right back.
- Okay.
- Hey, this is Jeremy Udall.
After the tone, you
know what to do.
- Hey Jerry, it's me,
can you call me please?
Thank you.
- You've reached Kevin.
Please leave a message.
- Come on, come on, come on.
- Come on keys.
Come on.
- What?
- Hey, Melanie,
hi, this is Hayley.
- Why are you
calling me, Hayley?
- I saw that Kevin's
boss was murdered.
I can't get a hold of him.
- Kevin is doing what
he's supposed to be doing.
- Ho, hey hey hey.
- Can I help you?
- Hi, is Jerry Udall here?
He told me that
he would be here.
- I'm sorry,
there's nobody here.
Everything's locked
up for the night.
- Are you sure?
- Yes ma'am, I've been
here for a few hours
and haven't seen anybody.
- Okay.
- Have a good night.
- Thank you.
- Hey, it's Jerry Udall.
After the tone, you
know what to do.
- Hey, umm, mom.
- Uh huh.
- Are you sick?
- I can't get a hold of Jerry.
He's not picking up, he
wasn't at his PT appointment,
his apartment, I just.
- He's probably drunk
and passed at somewhere.
- I'm worried about him,
I mean, what if he...
- Why?
Why are you even worried?
- I don't know.
- We're better off without him.
- Okay, you know what, can
you just not say things
like that right now.
- Mom, you're acting all weird.
- I'm sorry.
- I've gotta go to school.
- Great.
Okay, it's okay.
- Mom!
- Yeah.
- Someone's at the door.
Come in.
It's for you.
- Oh, Jamie.
You better head out
to school, alright.
Go ahead.
- Bye.
- Come on in.
- This is my partner,
Detective Whitman.
- Hi.
- Great, yeah, sit down.
What is all of this about?
- It's about your
ex-husband, Jerry Udall.
He was found dead last night
in a parking lot downtown.
- Jerry is...
- Yes ma'am.
- Can you possibly
think of anyone
that would want Jerry dead?
- No, I, I don't know.
- You two had a pretty rocky
relationship, is that right?
Domestic disturbances, ER
visits, that sort of thing.
- Yeah.
- When was the last
time you saw Jerry.
Two weeks ago.
He came into my work.
- Wait, but didn't you
have a restraining order
against him.
- Yeah.
- So why didn't
you call the police.
- Just it's never helped before.
- So where were you last
night between eight and 10 PM.
- I was here most of the
time with my daughter.
I did go out for a little
bit to a PT clinic,
but it was just for a bit.
- Around what time
were you at the clinic.
- Ninish, nine.
- Physical therapy at 9:00,
that seems a little late.
What were you doing there?
I was looking for my ex-husband.
- Was there anyone at the
clinic that saw you last night?
- Yeah, there was
a security guard.
- Well we happened to get
some security camera footage
from the club last night.
- Do you possibly
recognize this figure here.
We think that's more than
likely Jerry's killer.
He's standing?
- Who, what?
- Well Jerry was,
he was disabled.
- If there's more that
you could tell us.
- Ms. Udall?
- Well, thank you
for your time, Ms. Udall.
- I just, I have
one more question.
What exactly were you doing
meeting Jerry last night?
- I was bringing him money.
- And he told you he was
gonna be at the clinic?
- Yeah.
- Alright, that'll
be all for now.
- Thank you.
- This isn't real.
This isn't happening.
I had to.
I didn't want to.
- Have you talked
to Melanie about it?
- She told me I
was going to prison
if I didn't hold up
my end of the pact.
- I found out Sarah was dead,
and at first I thought it
was just a coincidence.
It had to be.
But then, I dunno.
When I found out, I
was excited one moment,
then freaked out the next.
The police questioned
me yesterday.
- Yeah, they talked to me, too.
About you.
- You wanna know
the funny thing.
I found out I'm
being reconsidered
for the promotion at work.
Apparently Sarah was the
only one opposed to it.
But now, I...
Melanie kept saying that
you were relying on me.
So I kept telling myself that.
And to keep me safe too.
I had to do it.
I'm so sorry, Hayley.
These were awful, evil people.
Melanie's aunt.
But I just, I didn't know
it was gonna be this hard.
I didn't know it'd be like this.
I thought I was doing
everyone a favor.
What am I gonna do?
Hayley, what am I gonna do?
- Kevin, there's only
one thing that we can do.
We need to go to the police.
- What?
- We go to the police and
we tell them what happened.
- No, no no no no no
no no no no no no no!
- Kevin, if we go to
the police alright,
they can help us.
- No no no no, I can't.
No, you don't understand,
you don't understand.
Okay Melanie, she's different.
I've never seen her
like this before.
Okay, all the time, I thought
it was just idle talk.
You don't understand.
- Kevin, if we go to the
police then they can help us.
- No, of course
you would say that,
because you haven't
done anything.
I killed a man!
- I know.
But Kevin, you can't, you
can't live like this, can you?
So here's what we're gonna do.
You and I, we're gonna
go down to the police.
I will go with you.
We will go down together,
and we will tell
them about Melanie,
and tell them about
Sarah, about Jerry,
about all of it, alright?
- No, look, I just,
- Please.
- I need time to think.
I need time to think about this.
- Okay, alright.
- Hayley.
- Hm?
- You wouldn't turn
me in, would you?
- No.
- Do you promise?
Thank you.
- Mom, Riana said she
would help me with math,
so I'm going over to her house.
- Jamie, we need to talk.
- Can we do it later?
- It's Jerry, it's your dad.
- Mom, what's wrong?
- Here, come here, honey.
- Mom.
- He...
He's dead.
- What?
- He was killed.
- Good.
I'm glad he's dead.
- I know.
I know.
- It's weird.
I don't feel anything.
- That's not weird.
- I used to hate him so bad,
but now that he's
gone, I don't know.
I can't figure it out.
- Me neither.
- How did he, how did he die?
- The police are
investigating, okay?
- Who is that?
- It's a friend.
He needs some help, so I'm
gonna go and meet him, alright.
- Can I go with you?
- No, you should really
be in school, alright?
- I don't wanna go.
I mean, because of dad.
- Okay, alright, well why
don't you just go ahead
and stay here then.
- I wanna go with you.
- I just, I'm not sure that...
- Mom.
I don't wanna be alone.
- Are you okay?
Okay, I'm gonna go
and get my friend.
- What's wrong?
- He's just in a
little bit of trouble,
but he's gonna be okay.
- Hi, are you Hayley's daughter?
- Okay.
- I'm your mom's friend, yeah.
What are you guys doing here?
- Um, well.
- Mind if I stick around,
wait for your mom to get back?
- Melanie?
- Hayley.
- What are you doing here?
- We need to talk.
Let's go someplace.
- Where are we going then?
- Your house.
You can give me a ride.
- I'll, I'll get us some drinks.
- Actually Jamie, I
need you to go ahead
and get started on
your homework, alright.
Melanie and I, we need to have
a conversation in private.
- Mom, I.
- Jamie, please.
- I don't have much
homework today, so maybe...
- Okay, alright, you know what,
why don't you go ahead and watch
something in my room, okay?
Come on.
- Okay.
- Thank you.
What now?
- You tell me.
- What happened to Kevin?
- My guess is a heart attack.
- But he was your friend.
- Friends don't turn
on each other, do they?
- I'm not your friend.
Does that mean you're
going to kill me?
- I hope not.
It's your turn, Hayley.
- What?
- Kevin and I kept up our
part of the agreement.
Now it's your turn.
- But I never had any
kind of agreement.
- This would be so much
easier if you would just do
what you said you would do.
- No, I never said that I...
- It was what you wanted.
Besides, if you don't do this,
things will get so messy.
You have such a
nice clean house.
Such a nice clean life.
Such a nice little family.
Doesn't need to get messy.
- Okay.
What do you want me to do?
- Lisa.
She has it coming.
Just like Kevin's boss
and your ex, trust me.
Don't let your
conscience get to you.
- Did Kevin have it coming?
- Don't...
Don't make this harder
than it needs to be.
We have a really
solid plan here.
- Why?
- Why what?
- Why have a plan?
Why pull Kevin and I into this.
You were perfectly capable
of killing on your own.
Why not just take care
of Lisa by yourself.
Why complicate things
by having two, no,
three more murders.
- You ever think
about your alibi?
- I don't need one.
- You sure?
You know I hear stories
all the time about men,
women, all convicted
by circumstance.
It doesn't matter
if you're innocent.
They can prove you
were with Kevin.
At the hotel, you must've
touched doors, doorknobs,
who knows what else.
Kind of suspicious when you
didn't call for help, too.
- I didn't need to...
- Then there's motive.
Your ex-husband dies.
Kevin's ex-lover dies.
Well, maybe you killed
them both so you could
be with Kevin, and when
he didn't appreciate it,
you killed him.
- What happened to
the heart attack?
- Well I'm sure an
anonymous tip about poison
can clear that up?
- Poison?
- And that's just one
scenario the police will see.
- Think of your daughter.
Without you she has no one.
You wanna risk that
with whatever the police
might find and believe?
Let's take a drive.
Go down to the theater.
- The theater, why?
- I think that's the
best place to do it.
- No, but see, Jamie...
- She'll be fine here.
You know what I'm capable of.
There's no point
in backing out now.
It'll just mean
things will happen
that neither of us want.
Don't overthink
this, just do it.
I'll be in your car.
- Mom, what's going on?
- I don't know.
- Does she have
something to do with...
With Dad?
What are you gonna do?
- I need to go, alright.
I'm gonna be right back,
but I want you to stay here.
- No performance tonight.
Come on, I'll show you around.
This is where all the
excitement happens.
My aunt sometimes
likes to go backstage,
not like she needs to
but, she likes to pretend
she has some influence
over how a show turns out.
Honestly, she has no idea how
to run a theater, all the...
- So you can't cover it.
Just do the best you can for me.
Okay thanks.
You're here late.
- I, I forgot something.
- Guess what I just discovered.
- What?
- The Andrews Performing
Art Theater is a rat's nest
of incompetency thanks to you.
You wanna guess why, why this
theater is going to fail?
Do you even know what you did?
- Everything I do is for
this theater and its legacy.
- My legacy, thank
you very much.
Do you just go out
of your way to prove
how worthless you are?
You failed to pay the premium
for our insurance bond
in time for it to
go into effect.
- No, I paid as soon as I
could get you to transfer money
into the theater's
operating account.
- Remember clumsy
Gretchen who broke her leg
a couple of weeks ago?
Guess what, she's suing us.
And because of you, our
insurance doesn't cover it.
So I'm gonna take an
allotment out of your salary
every month until it's paid off.
I think that's fair, yeah?
Come out.
Open this.
That'll stop a person's
heart in 20 seconds.
It's not cheap, either.
- This is what you
killed Kevin with.
- It's effective.
Listen Melanie, you
still have time...
- At 3 PM every
day my aunt demands
not to be disturbed
for 15 minutes
while she takes a power nap.
And at that time tomorrow,
after she goes into her office,
wait five minutes and sneak
in and inject her in the neck
with the contents
of that syringe.
She'll be dead before
she can make a sound.
Then walk out as if
nothing happened.
Get rid of that syringe.
- Melanie please.
- Come on, I'll show
you where her office is.
There it is.
- And where will you be?
- I'll be out with friends.
Alibi, remember?
- Alibi?
I don't think that
I can do this.
- Hayley, this plan
has gotta work.
For both of us.
You saw that.
You saw what kind
of person she is.
What's weird is, she
wasn't always like this.
When I was a kid, I used
to go over to her house
during the summer.
I used to have so
much fun back then.
I would beg my dad to take
me over to Aunt Lisa's
so I could go swimming.
- What happened?
- My dad killed himself.
- What?
- My grandfather was
a man of passion.
He had an unquenchable
love for the arts.
He used every penny to build
the Andrew Performing
Arts Theater.
Unfortunately, he was too
much a lover of the theater
and not enough of a businessman.
This place was hanging by a
thread when he passed away.
It passed to my dad and Lisa.
Knowing how much the
theater meant to my grandpa,
my dad worked his
fingers to the bone
bringing the theater
back from the brink.
But Aunt Lisa, she
thought he was stupid
for putting so much time
and resources into it.
She wanted to cut
losses, sell it.
The theater not only
survived, but it thrived
because of my dad.
It became the premiere
theater in the city.
But Lisa always knew how
to manipulate people.
When she saw the theater
was worth something, well,
she took all he credit
for the success,
and then convinced the board
members to push my dad out.
This not only destroyed
my dad financially,
but it broke him.
The theater had come
to means as much to him
as it did my grandpa, and
to lose it in a betrayal
by a close family member was,
it was more than
he could deal with.
I tried to poison
Lisa once before.
- You did?
- Yeah.
And when she started
feeling sick,
she went to the hospital.
But I was really careful.
They weren't quite sure if she
was intentionally poisoned.
I was questioned by the police
and for a time maybe suspected,
but eventually they
wrote it off as a fluke.
But that's why I have to
come up with a better plan.
If I'm a suspect, I wouldn't
inherit the theater.
She's going to destroy
everything my father
and grandfather gave
their lives to create.
She has to be stopped.
I, I will build it back
up to what it should be,
but without the theater, I...
I have nothing.
Nothing at all.
- If I do this, if I
agree to kill your aunt,
promise to never bother
Jamie or me again.
- Of course.
Of course.
- Excuse me, Mrs. Udall.
Jerry has another visitor.
- Thank you.
I didn't expect you to be here.
- I wanted to see him.
- I wouldn't have blamed
you if you hadn't come.
- Jerry...
He didn't deserve this.
You know, he wasn't perfect,
but he had some virtues.
- You're a saint, Hayley,
putting up with my son
the way you did.
- It's my fault.
- Don't say that.
- It's what he would've said.
And Jerry was never right.
He was blind when
it came to you.
- Mrs. Udall?
Sorry, uh, Ms. Udall, we have
a few more questions for you,
if you don't mind.
- Is there a reason
why I'm here?
Am I being charged with a crime?
- No, I just, I wanna clarify
a few things with you.
- So prior to your
ex-husband's murder,
we called you to clarify
Kevin Moore's alibi,
is that right?
- You actually came
down to my work.
That's how it happened, but yes.
- Alright.
Well, we found Kevin
yesterday in a motel.
He's dead, apparently
of natural causes.
- That...
That's horrible.
- See Kevin was a suspect
in the murder of his boss.
Apparently he had
an affair with.
But he was released as a suspect
based on you
corroborating his alibi.
A couple days later, your
husband turns up dead,
and now, Kevin's dead.
Doesn't make any sense.
- Was that a question.
'Cause if it is, no, it
doesn't make any sense.
- You can't clear
that up for me.
- I wish I could.
- Is there something
you wanna tell me?
- Can I go now?
- Sure.
- Thank you.
- I want this fixed by
this afternoon, no excuses.
Shh, I'll be in my
office, no interruptions.
- I'm sorry, I'm really...
- Who are you?
- I'm sorry, I think I just...
- Everybody knows that I
don't like to be disturbed.
- I got turned around
in the bathroom.
- What are you doing in here?
- I'm sorry.
- Who let you up here?
- I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
- Melanie.
How many times have I told you
to make sure no one disturbs me?
- Thanks for the coffee.
- Yeah.
- What happened?
- I was
trying, I was standing...
- Not hard enough.
- She woke up.
- You still could've done it.
- I.
- I warned you
what would happen.
- No!
- I hope you kissed Jamie
goodbye this morning.
- Hi, it's Jamie,
I'll call you back.
- Jamie, come on, answer,
all right, please, call me.
- Cannot believe it.
- Hi, it's Jamie.
- That was the greatest.
Cannot believe it.
- Jamie this is your mother.
Please call me when you
get this, thank you.
- See you tomorrow!
- Jamie?
- Hey Jamie, where are you?
- I love you.
- Jamie?
- She's in the trunk.
- Okay Melanie, please.
- She's brave.
Trying to be anyway.
- Please.
- You should've
stuck with the plan.
- Don't hurt her, okay?
- You should've kept your side
of the pact, Hayley.
- Melanie.
- Even a moron like
Kevin kept his word.
- Yeah, and look
at what happened to him.
- Trust me, it's gonna
be much worse for you.
- Melanie.
- This afternoon was
the perfect time.
- I know and I tried, I did.
- I warned you not to doubt me.
- Give me another
chance, please.
- At 8.
Tonight's production
is a VIP performance.
A lot of donations will
be coming into he theater.
Lisa'll stay late
to tally it up.
Do you still have the syringe?
- No, I, I got rid of it.
- What are you going to use?
- I don't know, umm.
- Think of something.
- I.
- Knife, gun.
It's gotta be quick but
it also needs to be quiet.
- I don't have a gun.
- Knife'll work.
But don't do it just once.
Do it three times to be safe.
Pick one that doesn't match
the others in your kitchen.
- Okay.
- I'm sure you'll find a
moment to get her alone.
You can do it then.
- Oh no, but she saw me today.
- Mm, then you'll
need to be quick.
- And where will you be?
- Close enough.
- I need to see Jamie.
- Not until it's done.
- I will not go
through with this
if you do anything to her.
I need to know that
she's going to be okay.
- Tonight then.
- Melanie.
- Hello Ms. Udall.
Now would be a good time to
ask you a few more questions?
- No, no, it's not good.
- I'll be brief.
- Everything alright?
- Yeah, yeah, I'm fine.
What is it that you wanted?
- Oh, I wanna let you
know that we confirmed
Kevin is Jerry's murderer.
Did Kevin know Jerry?
- No, I'm not sure, no.
- You know what I'm
trying to figure out?
Is why Kevin would murder Jerry.
I mean, it makes
sense with Sarah.
I mean he had motive.
Yet there's nothing
that ties them together.
- I dunno.
- You know, a security
guard at Landontech
said he saw a woman leaving
just about the time Sarah Olson
was murdered.
Now did you know Sarah?
- I didn't kill Sarah Olson.
- I didn't ask that.
- I didn't know her.
- And how did you
and Kevin meet?
- I work part time
doing rideshare,
and he was one of
the fares that night.
- And when did you
talk to him next.
- Sunday, we were going out.
- Going?
- Yeah, he canceled.
I wasn't sure why.
- Uh huh, well, we
subpoenaed his phone records,
Apparently you called
him just about the time
of his murdering
your ex-husband.
I was trying to reschedule.
And you got a text from
him a couple days later,
just before he died,
saying I'm ready.
Isn't that cryptic?
- I didn't answer.
- Why not?
- He was being
investigated by the police.
I just didn't think it
was wise to be dating
somebody like that.
- I have three
dead bodies Hayley.
Do you understand that?
And when I look at what
the common connection is,
on the surface, I don't see
one, but when I look closer,
and I see the threads that
tied between all of them,
do you know where they dead end?
They dead end with you.
- I'm really sorry, Detective.
I wish that I could help you.
- Then help me.
- I think it's time that you go.
- Okay.
If you want to make
this easier on yourself
and everyone, you
know how to find me.
- Having a little
heart to heart?
- He didn't look
like the nicest guy.
- No he didn't.
So how'd things go with
the ex-wife this time.
- She knows something
she's not telling us.
I'd like to put
surveillance on her.
- Are you sure we'll
get approval for that?
'Cause you know the
department's cutting
wherever they can.
- We'll just have to
alternate shifts ourselves.
- Okay, I'm here.
- About time.
- Where is she?
Where is she?
- She's here.
- Let me see her.
- Show it to me first.
- What?
- Your weapon.
- Alright, can I see her please.
- Jamie, oh my.
- Hurry up, show's over.
- The show was wonderful.
- Oh thank you so much.
Have a wonderful evening.
- Thank you.
- Well, looks like
everyone's gone.
- Is her car still there?
- Yeah.
Yeah, I'm gonna go
inside and take a look.
I'll keep you posted.
- You, what are you doing here?
- Lisa, listen to me.
- Who are you?
- Your niece, Melanie, she
wants you dead, not me.
- You were here this afternoon.
I'm not here to hurt you.
I'm here to warn you.
- Just stay away from me.
- Don't worry, Lisa.
I won't let her hurt you.
- Melanie, what
is this all about?
- This is Hayley, and
she's here to kill you.
- No.
- Only, I won't let
her get away with it.
And when he police
get here, they'll see
that I was too late
save my favorite aunt
or stop her homicidal stalker.
- Melanie!
- She deserves it.
You saw it.
She's horrible,
always tearing me down
when she's the one
destroying everything.
And you, all you had
to do was your part.
Instead you just
got Jamie killed.
Don't move!
- Jamie.
- Shots fired, send backup.
Hey, are you okay in there?
It's the police!
I'm gonna try to
break you out, okay?
Just stay back, okay?
Alright stay back, okay?
Hey, are you okay?
- Where's my mom?
- I don't know.
- Come on!
- No!
- Stop fighting!
- Jamie!
- Mom!
Let me go, stop!
Where's my mom?
- I told you to shut up!
- Jamie!
- Back here.
- Where is she?
- They, uh.
Backup's on the way.
- Stay back.
- Where are they?
Don't, don't hurt her.
- Drop it.
- What?
- Drop it.
- Slide it over here.
- Okay, let my daughter go.
- I will when I have Lisa.
I want to Hayley, but you're
the one killing Jamie.
- Please don't hurt her.
- Where's Lisa?
Oh Aunt Lisa?
Come out or I'm killing
this innocent girl.
- Alright alright, I'm here.
I'm here.
There you are.
You see Hayley, it's all
about proper motivation.
- Let Jamie go.
- No.
We can still make this work.
On your knees!
On your knees.
Now Hayley.
Kill her.
- How?
- Pick that up!
Pick that up!
Okay, drop it.
Drop it.
Pick it up.
Pick it up.
A knife would've been cleaner,
but we're way past
that now, hmm.
- What do you have to
gain from all this?
- Money, right?
Because it's always about money,
isn't Aunt Lisa.
But not for me.
For me, it's a
little bit more, hm.
For me, it's knowing that
I brought you to your end,
and I put a stop to
your greed and betrayal.
I planned it so perfectly,
but one thing always
bothered me about it all
and it was that
you wouldn't know
that I was behind it.
You wouldn't know
that you were paying
for what you did to my family,
what you did to your own family!
- This isn't gonna work.
The police, they've
already seen you.
- It'll work, okay,
just wait and see.
- You're insane.
- You're not gonna
get away with this.
Your plan has failed.
- It's fixable, I'll
just have to frame you
for the murders since
it's come to that now.
Now do it!
- Stop this.
- Don't move!
- You can't, please,
no, you can't please.
You can't, don't, don't, don't.
- Don't move.
- You're crazy.
- I prefer cunning.
- Okay, then you should do it.
Kill her yourself.
You want a job done right.
- You know what your
biggest mistake was?
Your mistake was
thinking that we were all
capable of killing like you.
- Hayley!
- We're backstage!
- Melanie.
- You took everything.
You left us with nothing.
You left me with nothing.
I was 14.
- No, no, Melanie.
- Stay away from me!
I did it.
I did it.
I did it.
I did it, I did it,
I did it, I did...
- Oh, oh.
Are you hurt, no?
- Fine, I'm fine.
- Good, okay.
- You guys both okay?
- Everything
clear, everything good?
I'll call paramedics.
- Don't worry, we'll be
going home soon, okay.
- Hey guys.
- Hey.
- How we doin'?
Hey, do you mind
if I have a moment
with your mom in private?
- It's okay, yeah.
- Okay.
- Come on, let's get something
from the soda machine.
- I don't even like soda.
- So, how's your leg?
- Oh, there's a
little chunk missing,
but I think I'll be fine.
- How 'bout you, you as okay
as you keep saying you are?
- It depends.
- On?
- On how much trouble I'm in.
- Well, Lisa's in
stable condition
and she's been awake
here and there,
enough to corroborate
everything that happened
at the theater.
- That's good.
- Yeah, Melanie's in custody.
She's been very vocal, and
she'll probably plead insanity.
But I'm happy to inform you
that you're no longer a suspect.
- Thank you.
Thank you.
Look, I'm really sorry
about not being able
to tell you everything
that was happening.
- Hey, you were
threatened by Melanie
and you didn't have a choice.
Pretty sure the D.A.'ll
see it the same way.
You guys have been through
a lot these last few days.
It's a fresh start, huh.
- Yeah, thanks.
- It's been a long night,
you gotta be exhausted.
- Oh yeah, I'm
actually starving.
- Yeah, me too.
- Let's get some breakfast.
- Yeah, oh.
- Who is it?
- Somebody needs a
ride to the airport.
- Oh?
- No, you know what, no.
They can find somebody else.
- Really?
- Yeah.
Come on.
Let's go.
