Burning Body (2023) s01e05 Episode Script

El amor

We are gonna pig out!
We are gonna pig out!
- Oh boy. How annoying.
- Hey.
What's up?
Huh? What is it?
I'm sure Javi stayed with Sofía
just to spite me.
Well, you'll have her here
tomorrow, right?
And you gave her Christmas presents.
So what?
I haven't given mine.
- But let me tell you something.
- What?
Being here alone does have its upsides.
Come on. Let's dig in.
Did you know my father used to hide
a thousand little trinkets in the cake?
Oh, really?
Sometimes earrings.
Sometimes little dolls.
- Mmm.
- Even money. Stuff like that.
Good old Juan.
Okay, let's see what we've got. Oh!
- What?
- No!
Oh shit.
- Are you serious?
- I got the bean.
Am I always the one
that has to pay, or what?
Let's see.
- Me getting the king would be perfect.
- Mmm.
- Or the queen.
- No. No.
There isn't one.
Only broad beans today.
Next year,
we tell your father
he's in charge of making the cake.
Sit down here.
I've never danced for you.
You are a whore.
A fucking whore and a liar.
If I ever hang up my uniform,
I swear I'll come after you.
I don't give a shit about you.
Anxiety about what?
I'm going to break up with Albert.
Well, I'm sorry.
Is that why he went on vacation
all of a sudden?
You'll have to ask your doctor
for sick leave.
I'll see what I can do.
Thank you.
- Come here.
- I'm here, baby.
Sit down here.
Come on, smile now.
Like this? Mmm!
You are gorgeous.
What is it? Can't you sleep?
I was going to give up everything
to move in with you and your child.
And take care of you.
I was going to change for you.
And you choose that scum?
Every time I see him at the precinct,
I'll remember
he's fucking the love of my life.
You broke my heart, Rosa.
You don't understand.
He will never be what you've been to me.
He doesn't have me.
I have only ever been yours,
and I'll only ever be yours.
That fucking bitch. Ugh, I'm an asshole.
What's the matter?
What the hell is this?
What the hell is that?
I have no idea.
Are you sure?
- I didn't write any of this.
- Are you fucking him?
What'd you say?
- What? No.
- Look.
- Um, "We are one."
- Yeah, yeah, I know.
- This is not Just listen, Pedro.
- And, uh, no. No.
"He will never be what you've been to me.
I've only ever been yours."
This guy's a son of a bitch.
I didn't write this stuff, okay?
- Are you fucking him?
- What are you saying?
- You are fucking him.
- Hey, hey! No! No, no, no! No, I'm not.
- Are you fucking him? Stop lying to me!
- No, no. Hey, listen to me.
No, I'm not lying!
Okay? I'm not lying to you!
I swear! I'm not lying to you!
My love
You look after my daughter.
You take care of my daughter. My love.
Hey, babe. Babe, babe. Come on.
I'm so stupid!
- I could lose my son because of a slut!
- No!
I'm so stupid!
I could lose my son because of a slut!
You fucking bitch!
You fucking bitch!
- Pedro. Pedro!
- You've ruined my fucking life!
- You've ruined my fucking life!
- I'm sorry, but
You've ruined my fucking life!
- Honey, honey, honey! No!
- You fucking bitch!
- Listen to me!
- You've ruined my fucking life!
Motherfucker! You fucking bitch!
Pedro, please don't leave.
I'm begging you. No.
With Pedro,
it was all or nothing.
He would fall in love like a 15-year-old.
He loved all those kinds of things.
That is the presents,
the dates, the promises.
"Or nothing."
And everything had to be perfect,
or he'd start to get suspicious.
- He was jealous.
- Yes.
And that's why it's hard for me to believe
that everything was fine with Rosa.
I talked to Silvia a few days ago.
I told her that Rosa
wasn't what Pedro expected.
There had been a lot going on, and he
Well, what do I know?
So, what exactly had been going on?
Well, for starters, the thing with Albert.
In what ways could that
have affected their relationship?
It must have driven him nuts.
Pedro left her.
But a few days later, he went back.
I may be paranoid
because of what happened to him, but
to me, this message
doesn't sound like him.
Pedro is more of a voice message guy.
Do you have any idea who might have
written those messages from Pedro?
He sent them shortly after I called him,
and and he didn't pick up.
I mean that he didn't pick up.
She answered him.
Rosa, on the 2nd.
And she said
Pedro couldn't answer.
The investigation continues,
and according to police sources,
they're making progress.
The motive of revenge has been ruled out,
and it is now believed it may actually
have been a crime of passion.
The Pedro Rodríguez and Rosa Peral case
is surrounded by absolute secrecy
until further investigation is available.
For now, the suspects are cooperating
with the criminal investigation
- Somebody's asking for you.
- Who is it?
You never told me that you had a brother.
Wait. My brother's downstairs?
I never mentioned him?
- Nope.
- I just haven't seen him in a long time.
Yeah, sure.
What's up, Albert?
What's up?
Let's go outside.
Looks good on you, huh?
The the uniform.
Do you know who you look like?
Our fucking old man, right?
- You're his spitting image.
- Well, the lesser of two evils, I guess.
I didn't realize
you were getting out today.
It's okay, brother.
So, what are your plans?
Stay out of jail.
Albert, I'm clean, huh?
That's great to hear.
We'll see if it's true this time.
Besides, a buddy of mine got me a job.
Some guy I met in prison, yeah?
Showing apartments
for his brother-in-law's company.
- Is it legit, man?
- All legit. All legit.
- Good.
- Legal.
What else? Come on, I see it coming.
You need something, right?
Albert, don't get upset, okay?
I I'll sort myself out quick, yeah?
I just don't have a place to stay.
Hey, let's go. Let's go.
- Have you eaten yet?
- No, I have not.
- Hey, Rosa. How are you?
- Fine, fine. Just fine.
I saw my parents, and they told me
that you called them in for a statement.
They're actually a little bit worried.
No news. There's no need to worry.
I just wanted to confirm some info.
Your parents have been very kind.
I'm sorry to have bothered them.
Listen, may I bother you
for a minute as well?
Of course. It's no bother.
What was the name of that shop that Pedro
had to make a payment at on the 2nd?
We're getting very close, Rosa.
As soon as we have something solid,
you'll be the first to know.
- Okay.
- Thank you.
Hi, Mommy.
Hi, little princess.
Lovebug. Where's Gramps?
- Outside.
- Mm-hmm.
He told me you're taking me to the park.
- Did he tell you that? When?
- Mm-hmm.
Just now.
I'm not taking you to the park.
Know what I'm gonna do?
I'm gonna take you
to a much, much better place.
- Yeah.
- Yeah?
Daddy's coming!
These are the bad guys.
Out of the way! That's it.
- I'm off, okay? Be right back.
- Okay.
- This is Daddy's bike.
- Do you wanna talk?
About what?
Your mother told me
you've been staying at her place
these past few days.
We're having work done at the house.
You don't know her, Pedro.
I've told you. You've been irresponsible.
Weren't you leaving?
One hour, and you leave when I come back.
- Kiddo!
- Daddy!
Sofi, come here.
I was dying to see you.
Hey, how are you? I'm Carmen.
I'm preparing a chocolate cake.
Would you like to help me, honey?
- Bye, Mom.
- Oh, sweetie.
- I love you, okay?
- Yeah.
- Behave yourself.
- She will.
Bye, Mom.
- I'll pick her up tomorrow at 6:00.
- Her cousins are coming at 5:00.
Please let her stay for dinner.
- At 6:00.
- Rosa
Pedro. My love.
I am so lucky to have found you.
I was so lost before we ever met.
I didn't know what true love was.
I want everyone to know
how happy you've made me.
- I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
- I'm gonna ask her to marry me.
- Cut the shit!
- I want you to be my best man.
- Don't fuck with me.
- You deserve everything, bro.
- Stop that. Hey! Psst.
You don't owe me anything.
I was completely out of control,
and you know it.
Forget it.
It's all good, man. Huh?
But, hey, you don't have to
get married now, do you?
Why's that?
Hell, man, I just mean that you actually
haven't known Rosa that long, Pedro.
Besides, you already know
she is a little bit
A bit what?
You know what I mean, dude.
Everybody says that that she gets around.
That she plays the field, hmm?
That's just because
she hadn't found the right man yet.
Now she has.
I'm not just anybody, damn it.
Do you know why she changed precincts?
Let's hear it. Why?
- Rosa.
- Hi.
Remember my friend Álvaro, the lawyer?
- Yes. How are you?
- How are you? Nice to see you.
- Likewise.
- Although it bugs me why, to be honest.
Álvaro is really good. Huh?
He got my parents out of trouble, right?
And I was just thinking that
Álvaro might be able
to lend you a hand with the lawsuit
against that son of a bitch
that shared that picture of you.
I saw that it's coming up soon.
Uh, I don't know if you have a strategy
or have somebody on it or
Mmm, no, no. Actually, I was
gonna go with a public defender.
No one in the force supported her.
Quite the opposite.
Well, except the one
that matters.
I won't let anyone screw you over.
Let's go get him, huh?
If you're okay with it,
we can gather the documents
and start figuring out how to protect you
so you'll be less vulnerable.
- Okay?
- Okay.
- Yeah? Want a drink?
- A beer is fine.
- Let's get that son of a bitch!
- Thanks. Absolutely.
Honey, I didn't tell you anything
because I didn't even know you.
Besides, it's something
that happened ages ago.
It's fine.
All that shit coming out again
makes me sick.
It's gonna get ugly, Rosa.
You know what people are like.
And if they're cops, it's worse.
Honestly, I thought about
dropping it many times,
but I think I should
take the bull by the horns.
Don't you think?
We'll do it together, Rosa.
You can put your trust in me.
For this and for everything else.
Can I?
- Can you what?
- Can I trust you?
Of course you can trust me.
Seven, six, nine, zero.
My password. To show my trust.
There you go.
My queen.
I'm off to bed.
Sit with me.
Will you marry me?
You're nuts.
Would I even be here if I wasn't?
Tell me who else in the world would have
given up everything for you like that.
Come on. Say yes.
And let's forget about the bad stuff.
Both of us.
Come on.
And where's my ring?
Imagine the best one.
That's what it's gonna be.
And there she is.
- Hello, little princess.
- Hi, Mommy.
- Give me a hand?
- Yes.
- Why so late? Where have you been?
- What?
At the spa. Isn't it obvious?
I bumped into my parents
at the supermarket.
- Let's go.
- Oh, hi!
- Hi!
- Hi.
- Hi, Gramps!
- Hello, sweetie!
- Hi, little one!
- What's going on? Oh my God.
Who's this little cupcake?
I've been looking forward to meeting him.
- He's the spitting image of you!
- Yes!
I hope Rosa's one takes after me.
- Fair enough.
- Please. Come on, Juan.
Don't do that to your future grandson
with a father like this.
Look at her. All flattery.
Oh, if you only knew.
Hey, Rosa says
you called the doctor I recommended.
Do you have a date for the surgery?
- This coming week.
- I'm so glad.
Hopefully, you'll be
fully recovered in no time.
I'm gonna see my parents.
I'm in heaven with the meds
they gave me for my back, huh?
Yeah, I can tell.
Well, I'm off, okay?
I'll send you the location.
What's up?
All good?
Yes, and you?
I'm fine.
Come in.
Well, I'm glad in the end
that you're taking it to court.
I had no choice.
Yeah, but
it's the right thing to do.
And this other guy?
Are you still seeing him?
We're getting married.
Are you kidding me?
Are you serious?
Pedro's not perfect,
but I see a future with him.
All right, then.
I don't even know why I'm here.
Well, that's that, huh?
I'm leaving, okay?
- So, you got a girlfriend?
- Of course I do.
That's my boy!
Okay, so is it pretty serious?
Yeah, we've already seen a house
and everything, you know?
- Damn! A house?
- The house doesn't matter.
But, man, look at you.
You have everything you wanted.
A girlfriend, a house, the uniform.
You fucking rule, little brother.
Shit, let me give you a hug.
Listen, are you serious
this time around, or what?
Or are you gonna spend
your whole life in and out of jail?
Dead serious.
Swear to God.
Okay, then there's two things
you should know, right?
The first one is, know what you want.
- You want a house, you want a girlfriend
- Mm-hmm.
- The whole package?
- Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.
Then fight for it.
But the most important thing,
and nobody tells you this,
is to know what you don't want.
And then you go,
and you throw it all away.
Trust me on this.
- You are the fucking man.
- Huh.
Albert, damn.
And look, I'm gonna start with this,
but not just yet.
- Some other day, then.
- I mean, quit and all.
You fucking rule.
- Yeah, right.
- You fucking rule, bro.
We went to the theme park.
- Yeah?
- Mmm.
Well, that's good, huh?
- You need to distract her.
- I know.
I'm so glad Javi actually
had nothing to do with it.
Especially for Sofía's sake.
I don't know.
- Almu!
- Mmm?
- Enough. Hey, stop that.
- All right, fine!
Enough. Stop that.
- Please, stop.
- Okay.
And so, who are they going after now?
I'm not sure. They don't know yet.
But they do keep you posted?
And I've been thinking about it
every single day.
You've won the lottery with Pedro!
It's gorgeous.
Boy, I told myself,
"I'm not gonna say anything to the girls
until I at least have a date."
But I just couldn't resist the temptation.
Have you actually seen this?
- You and I should really catch up, huh?
- Oof! No way, no way.
- What?
- I'm doing fine like this.
- Yeah? Like what?
- Like being alone.
Sure. When you see me dressed in white
with my prince at the villa
you'll change your mind.
Good morning.
Here you go.
Think about it.
What's this?
Let's see.
Is this an inside joke of yours,
or what just happened?
How should I know?
Why did you never tell us?
Because there's nothing to tell.
I don't I guess he must like me too.
- Then how did he know you were here?
- I don't know.
How should I know? I'm freaking out.
This is
- Girl!
- The fuck?
It's just
This is so weird.
Are you aware that our team
of renowned international scientists
has developed the most advanced
regeneration program in the entire world?
We are the ones
capable of regenerating up to 75%
of the human organism.
Prodigy Health Corporation.
The only company in the world
that can bring you immortality.
Because immortality
is just a matter of time.
Pedro, stop that.
It's very painful.
Hold still now.
It's time to make babies, huh?
I saw it on your fertility app.
Would you have kids with me?
And it won't be like before, huh?
You're not marrying him.
You know that, right?
He doesn't even let me breathe, dude.
I jumped through hoops to get here.
He's also obsessed with Javi's SUV.
Now he happens to be into cars.
For heaven's sake.
He should buy one for himself.
If we get lucky, he'll crash and die.
- Not even an online draft?
- We haven't found anything.
Nothing in the Treasury
under any of their names that day?
Hold on a second.
Yes. I'll hold.
No one heard from Pedro
on the 2nd.
Not friends, or neighbors, or family.
He didn't respond in work group chats
when he was active the day before.
He wasn't seen at the repair shop either.
He sent them a text saying
he would stop by to pay,
showed up when the shop was closed,
and left the money in the mailbox.
He'd never done that before.
He liked to drop in and chat
with the owner because they were friends.
- That's why he had credit there.
- Ms. Varona?
There's no information
on either party from that day.
There's no data for that day.
- All right.
- We'll keep you posted.
I just don't get why she told you about
doing taxes if it's not a useful alibi.
She never really thought
we'd get this far.
And now that we've done so,
she had to ask for some help.
Her parents.
They lied.
Call them in.
I want another statement.
Again with the same thing?
I need to confirm your statement
since new information has come to light.
You said you saw Pedro on the 2nd.
I already told you.
I saw him and waved to him.
- Can you confirm this?
- Of course she can.
Excuse me. I actually asked her.
Um Mmm, yes, you see, it was on,
I think it was on the 2nd.
Please, excuse me,
but I think I'm I'm a bit
I'm a bit confused with the dates.
It's very important to be precise.
Why is that?
No other person claims
to have seen him on that day.
From the previous days,
we have plenty of evidence
that Pedro was still alive.
Phone calls, video calls,
chats, photographs,
neighbors who said they actually saw him.
You both told me that
you were on a hike with him,
with Rosa and your granddaughter.
From the early hours of the 2nd,
there's nothing.
And what am I to do?
You want me to lie so it all fits?
I don't want you to lie.
I don't think that
wouldn't benefit anybody.
We are not lying!
- Albert López.
- Yeah?
Will you please excuse us?
Four, five, six,
seven, eight,
Get changed.
I don't wanna arrest an officer.
Rosa, you are under arrest.
Please just don't handcuff me
in front of my daughter.
Don't worry. I will personally make sure
that your daughter will be okay.
Let's go.
My love.
