Alba (2021) s01e04 Episode Script

Chapter 4

You know
the bullet that killed Kennedy?
Its trajectory was impossible.
Something like that must have happened
to put that car in the water.
What are you
delighting us with today?
Spaghetti with tuna,
spaghetti with tomato,
or your masterpiece,
spaghetti with tuna and tomato?
Only tomato this time.
- I'll make something new one day.
- Should we wait for Alba?
- I don't think she's coming.
- You don't think or you don't know?
Let's just start. César must be hungry.
You don't mind that I invited him?
Why would I mind? It's fine.
- He's your friend.
- Well, yes, of course.
What else would he be?
- A glass of wine?
- Yes, please.
- Thanks.
- Of course.
How did they manage?
- Manage what?
- Just to keep going.
- That's love, I suppose.
- Love conquers all.
Hmm. I don't think there's anything
that those two wouldn't do for each other.
That's good.
The important thing is
that they won't be hurting anybody else.
Are you saying the case is closed?
It would be
if it wasn't for Giner.
Just heard from Alba.
She got caught up with some tourists.
Perhaps that's for the best.
She's making the most of the summer
before it's over.
It won't be the same without her, I know.
- You'll have to be twice as interesting.
- We'll see.
Look, it's very simple.
I'm just asking if, on the way to Bruno's,
you saw anyone else.
Anyone else?
Yes, other than the guys
from the bachelor party.
You had me come all this way
just to ask something I already told you.
Well, recovering memories
can take a while.
Sit there.
Well then
- Is that it?
- Unless you have something else for me.
In a few days,
we will have to close the case.
Know what's gonna happen then?
I just want to get my life back.
You could have told me.
I got held up.
My aunt was a bit confused.
I'm sure you came up with
a great excuse.
You're really good at that.
Alba, I don't care what's going on
between you and Tirso,
but we have to look like a normal couple.
This is the only way.
A normal couple?
A normal couple. What is that?
You controlling every step I take,
or being stuck living with you
when there's no one on Earth I hate more?
I'm not controlling you.
I'm trying to protect you.
Fucking asshole!
You son of a bitch!
if you really want to protect me
tell your friends we have the video
and can use it against them.
- No. Blackmail won't work.
- Why not? That's what they're doing to us.
I'm sorry.
I thought it would take forever.
I called in some favors.
Sped things along.
So that's it then?
The land has been reclassified?
You can start building the resort
exactly how you planned it.
Hey. This is good news, right?
It's fantastic news, Emilio.
Just wish my dad
had been alive to hear about it.
Mmm. Wherever he is,
I'm sure he's laughing his ass off.
We get stuck with the hard part.
He knew what he was doing.
Here's to leadership.
Our present is looking bright.
I hope the future is as well.
I wouldn't doubt it.
Well, I always say business runs better
without any surprises.
Eloy hates surprises.
Just like me.
- Shall we drink to that?
- Mm-hmm.
Our lease in Madrid ends in two months.
There's no reason for us to extend it.
I already said I was fine with that.
And our things?
We'll have to go and pick them up.
I don't want anything from there.
All right.
All right.
I'm sorry.
- Thank you, Rosario.
- It's no trouble, ma'am.
I'm not saying I expect it,
But it's better to be safe than sorry.
Your brother would never
try to fight you for the company.
Not for him, for Jacobo.
He wants his son
to be everything he wasn't,
to direct his life.
It's textbook.
Since when do you think
about those things?
Since my dad gave you those shares.
Hmm. If we manage to play our cards right,
we'll make his wish come true.
We can buy
my brother's share of the company.
Then we keep everything.
That was his wish?
You and I are a team.
I'm sure he was aware of it.
Why else would he leave
all those shares to you, hmm?
I guess we'll never know, right?
Just handle it.
Who the fuck are you?
Bruno Costa?
- Okay, now turn.
- Got it.
- I said turn.
- I am turning, but
- Come on.
- Can we stop for a second?
Come on, we're almost there.
You said that two floors ago.
I need a break.
Come on.
All right.
Okay, stop. Put this thing down.
Next time we pick up
a sofa from the street,
make sure it fits in the elevator first.
If we had waited until tomorrow,
someone would have taken it.
Tell me this isn't perfect for us.
Sure, it needs cleaning, some love.
Hey, we can afford a new one.
We don't have to get junk off the street.
How can you take a perfectly good sofa
and just throw it away?
That's the system.
Bye, spend, throw it away.
Then I am against the system.
- Wait, hold on.
- What?
I love you.
Did you just say that you love me?
Well, just forget it.
I love you, too.
What's this?
Our sofa.
Why is it here?
The landlord didn't want it,
so I had it sent here.
Where's Jacobo? I thought he was coming.
He spends all day at the office,
Trying to prove he's the best,
like he always does.
So, how is he?
Fine, I guess. You know how he is.
I'm not sure I do, Rubén.
Why not? What do you mean?
This lieutenant from my unit,
he thought he was brave.
But the first time we got shot at,
he pissed himself.
Who knows?
I think extreme situations
reveal who we are.
Shit, man. Hey.
- Ah! Ah.
- Are you okay? Here, let's see.
Hey, don't touch it, man.
That's just a little scratch.
Don't touch it, Rubén.
Take it easy, okay? Does it hurt?
who would you choose,
my cousin or me?
- Why am I choosing?
- If there could only be one.
- I don't get it, Rubén.
- Fuck it, tell me.
See? That wasn't that complicated.
You'll be okay.
You wouldn't leave me behind, would you?
I What?
Isn't that the kind of shit
you say in the army?
- Take a watermelon. These are good.
- No, I'm just picking up for Miriam.
How's the restaurant?
Not too good, to be honest.
You just missed Bruno by a few minutes.
Why didn't you come to lunch?
You know
So sorry. I know you don't owe me
an explanation or anything.
Just You and I are almost family.
- If there's anything that you need
- Hello, anyone home?
- Hi.
- Morning.
- Alba, hello. How are things?
- Fine.
I found that part I needed
to fix your sink.
Oh. I thought you already fixed it.
Uh, there were still
a couple of rusty clamps
that really should be replaced.
Well, okay. Great.
César, how's your daughter?
Mmm, she's better.
Mmm, she's doing a new round of chemo,
but she's holding up.
Well, give her a hug for me.
I'll be sure to.
And thank you for for asking.
Well, I'd better get to work.
Thanks for handling that.
- What do I owe you?
- Nothing. I'll get it from Miriam.
- It's no problem.
- Okay.
- Bye, then.
- Okay, honey. See you later.
I told you I didn't want anything.
This is ridiculous.
There's this.
What did you think would happen?
Nothing. I thought you'd want your stuff.
The only thing I want is
to get out of this hole.
- Soon as they close the case.
- What if they don't, Bruno?
What if it takes all year, or even longer?
- Talk to your friends about the video.
- You know we can't.
What's gonna happen?
You think they'll murder us or something?
I can't keep living in your fantasy.
If this was a fantasy,
evidence wouldn't have disappeared.
- Lieutenant Giner
- Giner could be part of this.
We don't know.
She could have made it disappear herself.
You can't trust her, or anybody.
I know.
- Lieutenant.
- Yes?
- Lab's calling.
- About what?
It's about the DNA samples
from the suspects.
They wanna talk to you.
You can't be serious.
Did I sleep here?
It looks like it.
We can't keep doing this.
You need to do something.
What can I do?
Never mind.
- It's so pretty.
- It is.
You must be excited to visit.
Yes. If I only had the money, you know?
- Everything goes to the treatment.
- I bet.
But Houston is I hear it's very nice.
- Oh, is it?
- Mmm.
I wouldn't know,
since I've never been out of Spain.
You haven't? Really?
Well, it's just
I never had anyone to go with.
Don't get me wrong. I like traveling.
It's just one of those things
you have to share with somebody.
Or you just don't do it.
- Mm-hmm.
- Mm-hmm.
Well, we'll just, uh,
have to do something about that.
Oh, yeah?
You mean about traveling
or not being alone?
- Oh, Clara.
- Yes, Ángeles.
Do you have
any change for a ten?
- Of course.
- I never have any change.
Every time I go to mass,
all I have are a bunch of coins.
Here's your change.
Steve Jobs used to say that people
never really know what they want.
Those are things,
even if they don't know it yet,
that will really change their lives.
Today, we celebrate
that kind of success, hmm?
Now, let's have some fun.
Even the assholes.
Hey. You think it's a little early
to snort that shit?
Clean your fucking nose.
Look, the world's a huge place, Jacobo.
It's 10:00 p.m. somewhere, so
Hey, soldier! At ease, private.
What are you doing here alone?
Why don't we go find you some bitches?
- I think I'll pass.
- Don't be a pig.
Hugo, don't listen to him.
There are more important things than sex.
I'm trying to cheer him up.
This guy's about to spend
six-and-a-half months jerking off in
That's enough, Rubén.
Come on, Hugo.
Have a drink and relax.
- That'll cheer you up.
- Whoa, whoa.
What's he doing here?
I'm telling you, my friends are there.
Was he invited?
What's up, Bruno?
- Told you.
- It's okay, Miguel.
We forgot to tell you.
How are you, man?
We were going to take the yacht,
only one of Sandra's friends gets seasick.
So, we improvised a party here.
So what do you think?
It's fucking great.
Like nothing ever happened.
I'm surrounded by fucking assholes.
- Thank God you're here
- Don't talk like that. We're not friends.
- You gonna make a scene?
- I just want to talk.
Yeah, we can talk.
- First, have a beer with me.
- We talk right now.
One fucking beer, Bruno.
Then talk. Come on.
There you go.
Fresh pour and ice-cold, just for you.
Come on.
Just relax, man. Come on.
He has his own life.
- He can do what he wants.
- Yeah, but partying with those assholes
- Look, I'm not a snitch, but
- And why were you there?
You know, I was just passing by.
Vicent, I called you 20 times.
You can't sell a bottle
with the wrong mix of oxygen and nitrogen.
No, I don't want to hear it.
Don't tell me shit, okay? Just fix it.
- See you later, Alba.
- Hmm.
We tracked down those samples of DNA.
I'm afraid that because
the chain of custody was broken,
they aren't valid.
They're contaminated.
What do you mean, contaminated?
We won't be able to match them
to those guys from the bar.
- So what now?
- I'm not sure.
There's still a lot we don't know at all.
None of the suspects had
a tattoo on their arm.
The way the vehicle fell
into the ocean, it's implausible.
I'm starting to think it wasn't them.
All right. I'll keep you posted.
Twelve, 13, 14, 15
Stop the camera.
Rubén, put the fucking camera away.
Don't film me.
- Put it away!
- Hey, chill out, man!
- Don't fucking do that again.
- Fucking tell me what to do.
I can't imagine
what she must be going through.
That poor thing. I mean,
if that happened to me I don't know.
- I'd probably shoot myself.
- Yeah, you say that now.
- What?
- Never mind.
At least those guys aren't around anymore.
I don't want anyone to die,
but sometimes, there are people
Excuse me for a second.
I didn't come here
to listen to Sandra's bullshit.
- Are you and I going to talk or not?
- Right now?
You think this is the best time for that?
Right now's the perfect time.
Can you excuse us for a second?
That night, we screwed up.
You have no idea how sorry I am.
I'd give anything to do it over.
Anything you want, you can have.
Tell Eloy to leave us alone.
- Eloy?
- Hasn't he always been your nanny?
Alba just wants her life back.
We're not gonna report you.
What's the problem?
Tirso's shit is so fucking weak.
I'm not buying anymore.
He's still doing that?
Come on. You think
swimming lessons paid the bills?
- Fuck no, he's still
- Rubén, do me a favor.
- What do you want?
- Beat it.
Nobody's following you around. I swear.
They threatened to kill all of us
if we reported you.
- All of
- All of us.
Alba, her family, and Clara, and me.
And those other guys
That was no accident, was it?
All right, listen to me, Bruno.
I promise I'm taking you seriously,
but do you know how insane that sounds?
This isn't Sicily, really.
- Come on, let's just have a good time.
- No. No.
You know I would never
let anyone hurt you.
You're like a brother to me.
I used to be.
This doesn't change anything.
This changes everything.
- Alba.
- Tirso.
- You coming?
- Yes, of course.
I'm coming. I'm on my way.
What's wrong?
You ever heard of knocking?
- Rubén, we have to talk. It's important.
- Oh, really? What's so fucking important?
Rubén, it's about Bruno.
Do you think now is
the best time to talk about this?
He's been talking to Jacobo.
There's something up.
Wanna join?
Rubén, are you listening to me?
- Seriously, Rubén
- Are you staying or not?
Careful with this one, okay?
Whoever uses it, they'll sink right down.
I suppose you can't learn from corpses.
I'm sorry.
Let's get in the water.
- Tirso.
- Let's go in the water.
- Fine.
- Come on. Let's go in the water.
There's my baby.
Rubén, you took your time.
Why is your hair wet?
I took a shower.
Bruno's starting to lose it.
No matter what happens,
just remember our version.
The idea was Rubén's.
Excuse me?
The two of us have a future, Hugo.
Don't lose sight of it.
Fucking couple of the year
over here.
- Bruno.
- Hey, Toño. You seen Alba?
No. She had something to do with Tirso.
What do you mean?
She was working here.
And she does, but I think it's good
for her mind to spend time there. Heh.
Sure it is. Everyone is talking about it.
What do you mean? Who is?
People in general.
People in general? Saying what?
Only that she seems pretty comfortable
with Tirso on the beach.
Almost like nothing happened.
- What did you say?
- Maybe it wasn't such a big deal.
- Fuck you!
- You want some, you skinny son of a bitch?
- Leave him alone!
- She's a goddamn whore!
- Toño!
- If I hear you talk about my sister again,
I'll knock all your fucking teeth out!
- Get out of my bar! Out!
- Get out!
Huh? Huh?!
Toño! Toño!
- You okay? You okay?
- I'm okay.
- Are you okay?
- What about you?
Take it easy. You need to be careful.
Does this story have a point?
Wouldn't it make more sense
to take my clients' money
before I send them into the ocean?
I don't know what this guy was afraid of.
Do you remember that time three years ago,
the last weekend
before you left for Madrid?
Sure. I asked you to spend the day with me
at the cove, but you never showed.
- I was just really angry with you.
- No! Seriously?
You were leaving. What did you expect?
Do you ever think about
what might have happened with us?
I really appreciate
where we are right now.
- Don't mess it up, okay?
- Okay, okay. Message received.
But I still wanna know.
Mmm. I can't answer something
that's in the past.
I don't think that was convincing.
Are you stupid or what?
Like a superhero!
Ah, the superhero takes the bad guy
and throws him in the air
and into the trash.
- I don't think it went like that.
- I wanna be a superhero too.
Superhero Luisito!
Put him down.
He has to do homework.
Ah, will do.
Look out, Mom. Coming through.
Luisito, do you want to know
what really happened?
- Your dad stopped someone from hurting me.
- But how?
By using just his words,
without using violence.
That's your dad.
Did that really happen, Daddy?
Mmm, I'll tell you what.
You do your homework,
then the story.
What really happened today?
- I went to talk to the Entrerríos.
- You what?
You know who they are?
I do.
At least I know to stay out of their way.
Okay. Thank you.
It's better to have them
as friends than enemies.
I know from experience.
Hey, I don't think
we should tell Alba if
Don't worry. My lips are sealed.
Thank you.
Jesus, you scared me. Shit.
You ever heard of privacy?
How was the party?
You two can't seem to control yourselves.
Eloy, what do you want me to say?
We're young.
We're also fucking rich, you know?
You're also the heirs to this company.
It's time you both started acting like it.
Why are you telling this to me?
Why don't you tell Rubén?
Because he isn't
half as intelligent as you.
But he's going to inherit
double your shares in the company.
So what?
Rubén is part of my family.
Everything is about family, right?
I'm not sure why you're even here tonight.
I don't want to lose my job
because some brats
can't keep it in their pants.
No one, absolutely no one, will find out.
I'm telling you.
You make sure there aren't any loose ends.
The future of this family depends on it.
Where's Clara?
She went out.
What were you thinking?
That I would thank you or give you a hug
or start crying
because you defended my honor?
- I don't want anything.
- No?
You didn't want everyone to see
how great you are after that show?
How could I want that?
I talked to Jacobo.
He told me he didn't know anything
about those boys dying or the threats.
You believed him?
His approval still means so much.
Fucking unbelievable.
I'm not looking for approval.
But I think he's telling the truth.
Tirso was at the club.
He told me
that you seemed delighted to be there.
- Is that what he told you?
- Mmm.
It shouldn't be surprising
that he's a lot more credible.
He's not the great guy
you think he is.
- Lieutenant?
- Alba, I'm sorry to call so late.
Look, I tried,
but I'm afraid the tests are useless.
At some point in the chain of custody,
they got mixed up with other lab samples.
But how is that possible?
Could be negligence or
could be something even worse.
I'm really sorry about this, Alba.
I don't
- Thank you for coming to help me.
- You said that already.
We don't have room for it.
That's too bad. It's a nice sofa.
I need a break.
What are you looking at?
You wanna come help?
There's nothing going on with Tirso.
- Of course not.
- I'm serious.
Do you know how he looks at you?
If Tirso's confused,
that's not my fault.
What? So it's my fault?
Be honest, Alba.
He's obviously obsessed with you,
and you're just playing along with him.
The fuck is he supposed to think?
You know that's not what's happening.
I like spending time with Tirso.
- He's my friend. That's all.
- That's confusing him.
- You're so wrong about this.
- What am I wrong about, Alba?
What don't I understand?
You have Bruno. You have me.
So you must want him
and you must want me,
but you also want Tirso.
- Sure.
- You know something else?
You can't get everything you want.
You just can't.
And thinking you can have it all
is fucking selfish.
Now I'm being selfish?
Really? I can't believe
you're talking like this, Bego.
Don't fucking tell me what to do.
Leave him alone, bitch.
Fuck this.
Why are you here?
I was thirsty. Wanted a drink.
Yes, but what the fuck
are you doing here?
I want you to join the company.
Like we've always talked about.
You and I, together.
We could be working side by side,
pushing our ideas.
This is a lot of money
we're talking about, Bruno.
Your entire future would be guaranteed.
Your aunt's, Alba's,
Alba's family, everybody.
Why would I want that?
Turn the page on this
and give us another chance.
Sounds great for all of you.
Bruno, don't let one mistake
ruin our lives.
I don't even want to think about it.
It wouldn't be fair to us or fair to you.
It wasn't a mistake!
You fucking raped her!
Don't forget that you were a part of it.
You were right there with us.
We had a plan,
you and me,
and I'm sorry,
but Alba isn't a part of it.
You wanna know why?
She's not like us, Bruno.
Don't kid yourself. She never will be.
I'll tell you something else.
Nothing in life happens by chance.
You know what?
Yeah, maybe you have a point.
I'm glad you think so.
We can just start over, hmm?
We can be friends again
and forget this happened
- and stop it from messing with our heads.
- Yeah, listen.
But promise me you'll talk to Eloy.
Tell him to back off.
You have my word.
Alright, then.
- Call you later, okay?
- Yeah.
Hey, Lieutenant.
Puerta, who was first to arrive
at the scene of the accident?
- The local police.
- Yes, but which officer?
I can find out.
Also, find out which officers
transported the samples to the lab.
- I remember that one.
- Who was it?
No, no, no, it's not possible.
I mean, I I can't believe it. No.
- This can't be happening.
- I know, it's just This is crazy.
- I thought they were a couple.
- That's what I don't understand.
- I just I have to report it.
- No, you can't report it. He'd go to jail.
I don't care. He has to face
what he's done. I have to do something.
- Just listen
- It's all my fault.
I raised him.
I don't understand it. I don't understand.
And now that poor girl is just
- I don't know.
- Easy.
- It'll be okay.
- What am I going to do?
- What am I gonna do?
- Easy.
Listen to me.
You really have to be careful, right?
You know that.
Bruno and Alba are still dating.
- Yes.
- Right?
It's not rape.
I'm just saying
that we really don't know what happened.
Maybe the Entrerríos boys
and the soldier
I don't know, maybe they just, uh
Maybe they just wanted
Maybe they
Wh-What's the matter?
- What? What's wrong?
- When did I say anything about a soldier?
Oh my god.
You knew about this.
No, no, no.
- You knew and didn't say anything.
- No, I swear.
- Don't come near me!
- Listen!
- Get away!
- Don't do this to Bruno.
- Don't touch me!
- You can't
No, Clara! Clara!
Clara, you okay?
Can you hear me? Clara!
Maite! Maite!
I need an ambulance at Clara's shop.
I don't know. Just hurry!
Right now! I'm telling you, right now!
Oh my God.
Hey, Alba.
What are you doing here?
- Tirso didn't mention anything to you?
- No.
We planned to go diving,
but someone forgot to fill up the tanks.
Ah, come on.
You really gonna blame her for that?
Sorry. He thinks
he's in charge of everybody.
Okay then, do me a favor
and go fill them up. Off you go.
Tirso, right?
He said they'd be ready,
but he must be in the water
with some hot chicks, right?
Wanna come?
We're taking the boat to Windy Cove.
These the right ones?
- Yes.
- Come on, don't forget mine.
What's with this one?
Something wrong with it?
- No.
- Well, great.
See you 'round.
- See ya.
- Bye.
- Damn, that's heavy.
- It's your weak arms.
Come on!
- Hurry up. What's taking so long?
- Shut up.
So fucking impatient.
Were they here for the tanks?
- Where's the tank I marked?
- I don't know.
Oh, shit!
Hold on!
- Wait! Hold up! Wait a second!
- What's up?
I gotta take this one.
I promised it to someone.
- You serious?
- Sorry.
What the fuck was that?
- Fucking hippie.
- Let's just go.
Did you forget this was the bad one?
Are you okay?
They threaten me, and yesterday
my aunt had an accident. Coincidence.
You think it was them?
- You've created
- Bruno. What are you doing here?
What's going on?
How is it with the Entrerríos?
It's funny you're socializing
with those assholes.
What's funny is you saying this
when you're still selling shit to them.
Listen to me, Tirso.
Whatever happens, remember that you were
an accomplice that night.
- The fuck are you talking about?
- Hey.
- Your Honor.
- What are you doing here?
- If things got complicated?
- I will help you as far as I can.
- And how much is that?
- Until it starts to becomes a favor.
In the future,
I want you running this company.
- Think you're ready?
- Of course.
No. Not even close.
Are you serious?
It's not even 12:00.
Hey, hey. I've already got a mother.
You don't need to talk to me like one.
I'm sorry yours abandoned you.
You delivered
the semen samples, right?
The ones that got lost.
After what happened to Alba,
someone attacked me.
- What do you mean, someone attacked you?
- You tell me.
This will all blow over,
but we need you to stay strong, César.
In the phone we found,
we couldn't open some videos.
- Take this to the Civil Guard.
- You've seen everything.
They vandalized the bar,
and Clara's accident.
I can't risk it.
It doesn't matter.
Show her that video.
Giner hasn't closed the case.
She asked me to tell her
if I remember anything else
from that night.
Maybe they'll finally make an arrest
and lock us up.
Was this the first time,
or have there been others?
Why would you ask that?
I'm your son. Remember, Mom?
They found something.
Lieutenant Giner
wants to talk to all of you.
