Behind Her Eyes (2021) s01e05 Episode Script

The Second Door

Higher! Higher, Mum! Yeah! Morning.
You eat your greens, and you'll get your main.
You'll get your spaghetti.
Yeah, up there for thinking, down there for dancing.
What does that positivity correspond with? Well, I'm I'm afraid on this subject my positivity is not the Hello, sweetheart! Come here.
My baby! - I've missed you.
- Yes, I know.
- I got you something.
- Really? What is it? From France.
- Wow.
- It says "je t'aime.
" It's beautiful.
I love it.
Come here.
You're so sweet.
God, I'm happy you're back, babes.
Why don't you take your bag into your bedroom and I'll say goodbye to Daddy, okay? Okay.
See you soon, soldier.
Bye, Dad.
- I swear, he's grown so much.
- Yeah.
You're looking well yourself, Lou.
I've been hitting the gym a little.
I even stopped smoking.
Bloody hell.
Guess you won't want this, then.
- Two more in here.
- No.
Wine is always welcome.
Thanks for this, Louise.
I know You know, it wasn't easy.
It's fine.
Honestly, it was a good thing to do.
How's Lisa? Yeah.
She's doing great, actually.
Go on.
I'm happy for you.
No! Go on, then.
Go on, then.
Wah! Go on! High kick! Mummy! Mum! Whoa! Yes! I don't need two legs for this! One, two, three Whoa! I missed days like this.
I missed you.
I felt bad that I went to France without you.
Do you miss Daddy? Sometimes.
- You don't hate him? - No.
Your dad is a good man.
And without him, I wouldn't have you.
And when you're older, you'll understand things happen and it just means people shouldn't be together anymore.
They stop being good for each other, and then it's best to end it before things really fester.
What does "fester" mean? It means when things go rotten.
That might have been a little too fast.
There's no such thing!span style= "style1" Really? You're talking to Someone's at the door, Mum! Yep, I'm on it.
Who is it? I won't know till I open it, will I? - Hello, stranger.
- Hey.
- Auntie Sophie! - Hello.
Sorry, I've been crap.
I've been worried about you.
So, did you really quit? Or did David fire you? Because he found out about you and his wife.
- Yes.
- Shit, Lou.
What did I tell you? - We already agreed - What? To live my life exactly like you told me I should? I really don't need "I told you so" s right now.
I'm only here because I care, Lou.
And look it must sting, I know, but you're best off out of it.
Because you are out of it, right? I'm worried about her.
Jesus I hate seeing her the way she is, so fragile.
Seriously, Lou, David's a psychiatrist.
Maybe his wife is crackers.
Proper Jane Eyre in the attic stuff, which would explain why he's having these affairs.
I would know.
God, everything you're saying I don't even think you know, but it just says, "Poor old Louise, can't even get an affair right.
Always ends up hurt.
" I'm not the bloody victim here, Sophie, all right? I never fucking have been.
Adele's got no one else.
Not really.
Not properly.
And I know how that feels.
Maybe you should go.
Do you want it open or closed? Closed.
It's been really good to see you, Adam.
- And Igor scores.
- Hey.
Ooh, you stink.
Get in that bath.
- Do I have to? - Yes.
Go on, now.
Hey, Lou, all right? Hey, yeah.
Yeah, I'm fine.
I was wondering, and I know it's short notice, but could you maybe watch Adam for me for a couple of hours? - When? - Tonight? Sorry.
It's a last-minute thing.
I need to go help a friend.
'Cause I had serious plans tonight with a bottle of chardonnay and A Star Is Born.
Well, how about I provide the chardonnay and you can watch The Incredibles? Won't make you cry nearly as much.
I've missed the little man, anyway.
He can tell me all about France.
Give me ten minutes? You're a star.
Come on.
All right.
Well, you got that one wrong, dickhead.
I can't believe you stole it.
These notes go back ten years.
All the way till you were in Westlands.
Did you read it all? No.
But, I mean, I had to look to make sure it was the right thing.
There's stuff about the police, Marianne not pressing charges He can't have made all this up, Adele.
I told you about Marianne and the affair.
So, yes I confronted her.
Wouldn't you? And then I sound like the crazy one.
He paints a picture of me and people believe it.
Even you.
You're looking at me and thinking, "Was I wrong about her this whole time?" I'm not.
I've seen how he treats you, Adele.
I just think you should have control over your own life.
Be in a position where you can look after yourself if you need to, make your own decisions.
You sound just like Rob used to.
Yeah, well, from what I read in the journal, Rob saw it all coming.
It all goes back to Rob.
I don't understand.
What has this got to do with Rob? Everything.
Come with me.
I need to show you something.
These are the colors of the woods where I grew up.
On the estate.
The spring and summer they were so green.
And alive.
Like something out of a fairy tale.
We never go back there.
Not since Rob came to visit.
David refuses to go there and he refuses to sell it.
It's all just sitting there empty and forgotten.
I don't understand.
I think David killed Rob.
What? David was jealous of Rob, I think.
That I listened to him.
I just wanted them to be friends.
The two of them were the most important thing in my life.
What happened? One morning Rob was just gone.
David said he decided to leave, but Rob would never have left without saying goodbye.
Have you ever asked David about it? I can see it in your face.
What you think of me.
Being told something like this, it isn't enough.
It's just words.
Unless you were there.
Unless You think Rob is still there, don't you? Somewhere at Fairdale? He'd never have vanished on me.
Not if he was still alive.
Ready for bed? Ooh.
There you go.
Good night, sweetheart.
Good night, Mum.
Sweet dreams.
God, I hate this fucking place and everyone like Ailsa who thinks it's the whole fucking world in their shitty little flat, in a shitty tower block.
No wonder I wanted to get off my face as soon as I got back here.
It's what those rehab idiots don't understand.
Some of us don't want to stop.
Mediterranean of a bygone age, but unlike most of the Med, you can still buy a place in the sun here for a hundred thousand pounds or less.
Don't touch those cans of lager, Rob.
They're for us, not you.
I don't want your shitty beer.
She'd like to get her hands on a holiday home she can rent out in the summer.
I'd like to have a place where we can rent out, but also not too far from England so we can go visit it.
Can't believe I'm gonna see her again soon.
I’ve never cared about anyone like I care about Adele.
I’m actually nervous.
What if it's all different at her house? Her mansion? Fuck.
- Have you got it? - Aye.
What do I know about all that? Can't believe I'm escaping.
That's what Adele is.
An escape from my life.
Fuck off, old life.
Hello, new.
Right, mate.
Twenty-two lights on.
Let's see what he can get through this next run, then you've definitely got yourself a date.
The girls fancy a slice of our pizza shop owner, but imagine what he's topping when his brother, Philip, delivers some daily news.
Girls, listen up Mummy, come! Look, Mummy, I found a snail.
Wow! I'm gonna call him Cameron.
Okay, Cameron.
I like your house.
So I'm gonna have a house like you.
What are you going to do? Naomi, you weren't feeling that.
Martin, that is Robert Dominic Hoyle.
Glas Glasgow.
Seven eight, five.
Who is it? It's David.
Adam's here.
You can't come in.
I don't want to come in.
I just want the office keys.
What? I know it was you last night.
I haven't told anyone what you did.
I just want the keys and the file you took.
I've got no idea what you're talking about.
You're a terrible liar.
Some of us haven't had the practice.
Wait here.
I need the file as well, Louise, or things are gonna get ugly.
Is that a threat? You know what you forgot last night? There's a security camera outside the clinic.
And if I tell anyone, you're in serious trouble.
That wouldn't look good for future employers, would it? Just give me the file and stay out of my marriage.
Or what? You'll call the police? Do you really want to go there? Go on, then.
That's what I thought.
Where is it? I gave it to Adele.
Stay away from us, Louise.
- You don't know what's going on here.
- I don't believe you.
I don't believe anything you say anymore.
Then believe this.
If you keep interfering, you're going to get hurt.
Perfect timing.
It's like you knew exactly when I'd get home.
Have you eaten? When is this Stepford Wife act going to stop? - I thought we made some progress, David.
- Right.
Yeah, because all we really need is some pasta, a nice dress.
You knew who she was, didn't you? Louise.
You knew when you met her.
You always know things.
How is that? - You're not making any sense.
- You play your games, Adele.
I'm done! I don't care anymore! But you leave Louise out of it.
I want a divorce.
Don't say things you don't mean.
I mean it.
I mean it.
Nothing could be worse than this.
Once you start, David, some things can never be taken back.
They change things forever.
I have no idea who you are anymore.
Are you ready? I think so.
Have you ever done this with someone else? No.
You're the first person I ever even told.
You're the only one I knew would believe me.
I'm nervous.
Me too.
- We don't have to.
- No, I want to.
With you.
One, two, three, four, five, six seven, eight, nine, ten.
It's all right.
Fuck me, that was amazing.
"Astral projection is a term used in eso esotericism" Sounds dirty.
"to describe a willful out-of-body experience that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness called an 'astral body' that's separate from the physical body and capable of traveling outside it, throughout the universe.
" I've always just called it "traveling.
" You've never wanted to know how or why it happens? No.
I didn't want to do anything that might change it.
You were doing it, weren't you? The night of the fire.
Maybe if I hadn't been I think if I'd been in my body, then I I would have smelled the smoke, or Don't.
Don't do it to yourself? How far can you go? Not far at the beginning.
But the more you do it, the further you can get.
It's like building a muscle.
I think you can go anywhere you've been before, as long as you can visualize it.
Does David know? He's practical.
He'd never understand.
Please don't mention it, okay? Our special secret.
He's here.
Come on.
Come here.
- God, I've missed you.
- I missed you too.
David this is Rob.
My best friend.
Rob, this is David.
I command that you both love each other immediately.
It's good to meet you.
It's nice nice to meet you too.
Ailsa speaking.
- Ailsa Hoyle? - Yes, can I help you? Yes.
I was wondering if I could get a minute of your time.
I'm doing some research into the Westlands Clinic and I think your brother was there for a time? Robert? You're looking for Rob? Yes, but I'm struggling to get any contact info for him.
Westlands is it? Bloody waste that place was.
Rob was back on the gear as soon as he got out of there.
He spent two days in his room, off his face.
Then he pinched my last 40 quid and walked out of here.
Haven't heard from him since and that was ten years ago.
You've had no contact at all? No.
Chances are he was dead in an alleyway somewhere soon enough.
- I'm sorry.
- Don't be.
Rob was a nasty wee shite.
He really was.
He's not worth your bother.
Listen, I've got to go.
Yes, of course, thank you for I think David killed Rob.
"Fairdale farm boy saves heiress" He saved my life, you know.
The night my parents died.
What happened to the girl? I'm really not sure.
I know you've got all her money.
You're going to get hurt.
David said he decided to leave, but Rob would never have left without saying goodbye.
" DCI Wignall spent two hours talking to David Ferguson, previously hailed a hero after rescuing Adele Campbell from the fire.
- Is David Ferguson a suspect? - No comment.
Are you holding him in police custody? - He's in the hospital.
- DCI Wignall, is David Ferguson a suspect? This is an ongoing investigationspan style= "style1" and I can make no further comment.
I'm sorry.
Witnesses have stated that Campbell's family disapproved of the relationship, and that Ferguson's family were suffering financial problems.
Investigated the Fairdale fire.
At Fairdale later that year.
I think maybe David Ferguson killed him.
I think Rob deserves that people know the truth.
"'At least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have changed several times since then.
' 'What do you mean by that?' said the caterpillar sternly.
'Explain yourself.
' 'I can't explain myself, I'm afraid' said Alice.
'Because I'm not myself, you see.
' 'I don't see.
' said the caterpillar.
" Hurry up and - I think someone already has.
- span style= "style1" -Genius! Darling, your car's here.
I thought I might scrounge All right? What are you wearing anyway? Mummy! Mummy, please wake up! Mummy, wake up! Mummy, please wake up! Mummy! Mummy! Mummy! Mummy! Mummy, please wake up! Mummy, wake up! Mummy, what's wrong? Mummy.

I was trying and - you wouldn't wake up.
- Mummy's here.
It's okay, I'm here.
You scared me.

I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to scare you.
It's okay.
It's okay, I'm here.
Mummy's here.
All right, Lou? Yeah.
Yeah, I'm good, thanks.
I just wondered if I could borrow some coffee.
- For the morning.
- Sure.
Come in.
Ignore the mess.
Darling, stop me drinking, Saff has threatened to leave home again.
Few scoops all right? I know I'm not a drinker, but you know what she's like.
Sorry, it's just the cheap stuff.
What will you drink if you stop drinking? I shall drink water.
It's a mixer, Patsy.
We'll have it with whiskey.
You're up late.
Sure you're all right? Yeah.
I'm sorry, it's just Thanks.
No worries.
Must have seen this one five times, but I still love it.
Worst eight hours of my life.
- Night! - Yeah, night.
Mummy, please wake up! Mummy! Mummy, wake up! Adele! Wake up! Adele! How did you know? I know about people.
You can go anywhere, you know.
You must see a side to David I never do.

I'm sorry.
I don't think we've met.
Ooh You lying bitch!
