1 (MELANCHOLY MUSIC) (MUSIC CONTINUES) (THEME MUSIC) Love, you should try to eat.
I'll put it up here for when you get hungry.
I have to go out for a bit.
I'll be as quick as I can.
Lorrie, love.
For the distress I've caused you I'm not distressed, I'm exhausted.
And you don't have to apologise.
You were obviously corrupted by No, I wasn't, Lorrie.
No, no, Herb, that wasn't you.
(POLICE RADIO TALKBACK) Isaac? I just need to ask you a few questions.
Is that OK? The person who showed you this, it was Tommy Brydon, the man who was tied up outside your fort? I need to find him.
Do you have any idea where he might be? (TRIES TO OPEN DOOR) No! No, no, no! - Please listen.
- Get out! Get out! - I'm not gonna hurt you! - Get back or I'll kill you.
- I would never hurt you, OK? - Get the fuck back! Whatever you want.
You are a monster, what you did to my husband.
I'm trying to tell ya, I didn't touch him.
- You're a liar! - I'm not lying! OK, there are some things that I didn't tell the truth about, like being a marginally older man.
- I'm calling the police.
- No, don't OK, alright.
OK.
You can call the cops, if that's what you want to do, but not before you tell me that you believe me.
'Cause I did not I did not kill him.
I did take him to the station to return him to you so my DNA's all over him so when they catch me, that's it.
I'm done.
For good.
So, please .
.
tell me you believe me.
Why does it matter? Because .
.
I care about ya.
I careabout you.
- How did you do this? - It's in the caravan.
The plant.
It's yours now.
You do with it what you will.
(KNOCKING) - Just wait here.
- Yeah.
Hey.
Umnow's really not a good time.
No doubt.
How are you holding up? Um .
.
barely.
I keep thinking I'm going to wake up and Griffo's going to tell me it's all a stupid joke.
Guess he wouldn't be laughing if he knew Tommy Brydon had given you this.
Well, not old Tommy, of course, but a younger, more manipulative version, if your husband was correct.
He stole it from a dead woman's body to give to you.
No matter how much of a smooth talker he is, Tina, he killed Griffo.
No, he said he'd Do you know where Tommy is? OK.
I, um I'm a coward, Ray, because I should be saying this to you in person but every time I try to all I can see is your eyes willing me, imploring me, not to give up, to fight.
But soon I won't be able to feed myself, to talk.
When I get to the point where I no longer know who I am .
.
I don't want you to be there.
You have put me first for more than 50 years and now I want you to put yourself first.
I need you to put me in care and get the hell out, cut and run.
Because I know you, I know you so well.
I know that you won't give up and I want you to give up, I want you to find your own life, Ray.
I love you.
You are trespassing.
Farida.
Farida, I'm Ray, Gwen's husband.
Remember Gwen? She was in the room next to you at the care home.
Yes, I do.
You walked past my room every day.
Not as much as a hello.
I didn't realise.
I was alone in that place.
No-one came to visit.
Farida, I need your help with Gwen.
You know she needs this.
Remember how sick she was? So what is it that you are prepared to do? Look, I know how difficult this must be for you .
.
Ranjeet dying here.
No.
It's not.
Because I'm free.
And if you come here again .
.
I will not be so gracious.
She had suitcases.
(SNIFFS) She was leaving me.
No, no, honey, no, she She was leaving me.
I'm sorry I lied to you, Zacky.
But you remember how much we were fighting, don't you? She found a new job in the city.
A place of her own.
She wanted me to tell you after she left but .
.
when we lost her But she was gonna call you as soon as she got settled and see you as much as she could.
Then why didn't she take me? Because we both wanted you.
And I couldn't live without you.
So this is not about you.
We just stopped making each other happy.
What if I stop making you happy? You can make me as miserable as you like and I'm not goin' nowhere.
I promise you.
(DISTANT VOICES OF RESIDENTS) Are you my mummy? OLD GWEN: I don't I don't belong in this place.
What is this place? No, no, stop it, stop it! No! No, no, NO! Stop it! Stop it! SAM: Oi! Hey, kid! I've been looking for you everywhere.
Get away from me.
Yeah, that's alright.
That's alright.
I get it.
I'd hate me guts too.
I knew I should have told you way earlier but I just wanted to I just wanted to see you again, you know? For probably the last time.
Hey, listen to me.
You deserve some fun now, alright? To be a regular kid.
And doregular kid shit.
Not that you're a regular kid at all, you know.
(CRIES OUT) Oh, sh So, ah, take care of yourself.
I'll see you around, alright? You be a good man.
That's OK.
Bye.
(GROANS) (CONTINUES GROANING) (SIREN) What are you doing with that? I need it, Max.
What for? To help Gwen.
It doesn't leave here without me.
(SIREN) (SIREN CONTINUES) (PANTS) (GRUNTS) (SIREN) (PANTS AND GROANS) Sam! Tommy.
Sam! (PANTS) (GROANS) (GROANS) (GROANS) (CONTINUES GROANING) Well, I see you're still you.
Or not you, more to the point.
I lost the baby.
(SOBS) If there was one thing that I wanted more in this world .
.
a baby.
The one thing I should have given up everything for and I didn't.
I'm sorry.
Oh.
We all like to think our time's unlimited but it's not.
You know, I can remember seeing you in a Christmas concert once.
We were both teenagers.
And I thought, "If only I could be so brave.
"If only I had your gift.
" And look where it took you.
Children are wonderful but they leave you.
Then what do you have? And your Ray, there's nothing he wouldn't do for you.
Thank you.
RHONDA: Tommy Brydon's been arrested.
Good.
That's good.
It is.
Interesting character, isn't he? Both versions of him.
'Cause that's not news to you, is it? That the young fella you were seeing is also old Tommy? Which leaves us with something very alarming going on here.
Yeah.
If it's true.
Tina, for Griffo's sake, to prove that he was right and that he wasn't insane, you need to tell me.
"No more left.
" That's what Tommy said to me.
No more what? I don't know.
Magic beans? Sorry, it's It's just too crazy.
Yeah.
Find the toilet.
Hey.
It'll grow.
- Take the whole thing.
- That'll kill it.
Not if we protect the roots.
Take the whole thing.
- Oh, Christ.
- No, no Look at you both.
Two strong men.
It doesn't have to be like this.
- (FIRES) - Max! (GROANS) FARIDA: No! (MAX GROANS) (LOADS GUN) (GUN CLICKS) I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- Christ, Max.
I'm sorry.
I'll get help.
I wasn't lying to you.
I wouldn't even let myself think it.
Whenever it entered my head I'dI'd condemn the very thought.
I'd hear my father's words, hishis disgust.
Did you ever love me? Of course I love you.
You've been my life for the last 52 years.
My best friend.
I'm only sorry that .
.
that you didn't have someone who could've offered you more if I wasn't enough.
And I'll understand it if you want to leave me.
Well, that's ridiculous.
And go where? I suppose I did consider it.
You weren't like other men.
I think that's probably why I loved you.
You listened to me.
You understood me.
And I felt as if .
.
I was home.
And I think a roast would be nice.
(SIRENS) What really happened here, Ray? What the hell's going on? Farida Korrapati did this? A 92-year-old woman? It's where her husband died.
Did you know that? It was horrific.
Trapped in the toilet.
All bloated.
I found Farida clinging to the roof.
Silent.
Couldn't get a word out of her.
Look, it just won't stop.
The pain from that day.
You found You found them all, the bodies? My worst nightmare.
In your home town.
And Tina's sister.
You found her on the riverbank? I mean, that's what they said.
No, Griffo's caravan.
Why? We'll talk after, Rhonda.
No, no, Ray, we haven't finished, mate.
Ray! - Gwen.
Come with me.
- That's Max! What happened? Karen did not die by the river.
What are you talking about? Karen? We've still got one chance.
No, I don't I don't want to I don't want to do this, Ray, please.
I'm sorry that I hurt you and I love you but I don't want to do this anymore.
I just I just want to go home.

(STARTS ENGINE) Ray, please.
It's OK.
It was here.
- Ray.
- It's gone.
I don't want to do this anymore.
Please.
Why? I just want to go home.
I just want to spend time together.
While we still can.
But I only just got you back.
Down there! There it is.
Tina, I think you've got something in there that we really need.
I can't help you, I'm sorry.
It's for Gwen.
This is my chance to get the hell out of Mullan.
Have a new life.
I don't want to take that away from you.
But when she ages back she'll be gone.
Yeah, when it runs out, well, what then? Oh, Tina.
I'm begging you.
I just need more time.

- Thank you.
Ray.

I can't.
It's not for you alone.

GWEN: Stop! (TENSE MUSIC) (GROANS SOFTLY) I am sorry.
Don't be.
It is what it is, Ray.
I can't go back to that, Ray.
Oh, no, love.
No.
It's the only way.
It is.
But I'll look after you.
I know you will.
And that's why I have to do this, for both of us.
And at least now we can say a proper goodbye to each other.
(SOBS) My beautiful, beautiful husband.
