Fire (2)

What a joke! All you did was shack up with a freshly widowed MILF who's so messed up she can't even see how broken you are! - STAND UP! - Stop! Liam, man! I'm a social worker, but it's quietly known that I help women get away if they need to.
I just wanna be with you.
Donovan, I'm married.
Oh, uh I mean, this whole time she was lying to me.
How did I not see what she was? Yeah, we don't know what she is.
Kelly was pregnant.
Then whose baby was buried in the community garden? Kelly Hart's insurance company called.
There was an issue with the claim.
It looks like her DNA saliva sample didn't match her son's.
Hey, what do you want me to do, Mac? We might lose Kelly.
You need to pick her up right now.
Wait! Kelly! I know you're in there! Kelly? Kelly! Are you sure there isn't anything I can do? I just, I I feel bad not helping.
Why do you feel bad when people take care of you? Oh, uh I don't No, wait, don't answer that.
That is too personal.
You can do the beans.
David, uh, my um My late husband used to do most of the cooking, but I'm learning.
Your husband died too? Yeah.
It was um it was sudden.
Everything's sudden.
Yeah, it is.
I know I just met you, but I kinda feel like I've known you my whole life.
Like you're the sister I never had.
Oh, that's yours.
What're you doing here? Hello?! Hey! Hey! What're you doing in my house?! Sorry, this isn't my most professional of moments.
It's okay, honey.
Go ahead.
See you in a minute.
Oh, thank you.
So you guys were you were on a trip? Morocco.
Doing the "world scholar" thing with our daughter.
Yeah, that's her.
But she told us her name was Holly, not Kelly.
She was supposed to water our plants while we were away.
I got her number off one of those tear-offs down at the food co-op.
Uh, she said she was studying environmental landscape management, at Seneca College.
Did she give you that? Yeah.
It doesn't seem so generous now, knowing that she was living here for free.
Uh My name is Kelly Hart and I need your help.
Uh I'm sorry, I um Excuse me, I have to, I have to go.
- Oh, uh - Uh Just take the plant.
No, uh no, I don't, I don't I don't want it, but, um, just make sure you don't throw it away, okay? My name is Kelly Hart, and I need your help.
My son Robbie was taken from me.
He was only nine months old and he was taken from me after less than one year on this earth.
I lost everything in a fire.
You calling to yell at me again? I can't affor Can I show you something? She's crowdfunding now.
My son Robbie was taken from me.
He was only nine months old and he was taken from me after less than one year on this earth.
Quite a performance.
Especially seeing that it's not her child.
I-I can't afford to bury him properly.
I wanna get him a headstone, but they say that A marble angel for my angel Robbie is gonna cost $50,000 dollars.
Can you please help me? What is she up to? Please help me if you can.
Thank you.
Look at that.
Does it look like there's something cropped out of the bottom of the photo? Yeah.
Will you send this down to Lucy in digital forensics, please? Mhmm.
Looks like she shot the video at the community garden.
Let's head down there, see if she left anything behind.
Jenny! Donovan! - What is it? - I got Lucy on the line.
That was quick.
I know, she's a genius.
Lucy? They're here.
Nothing's ever really deleted on the internet.
It's an idea people can't get through their heads.
Oh, juicy.
There are two babies.
Liam! Hey, Liam! - What?! - Can you just can you just keep it down? Shh, shh, shh.
Do you hear it? Okay, so what's going on here? All I see is you're You're beating the shit out of my daughter's walls and you're freaking out Ross.
You don't wanna freak out Ross.
Yeah, don't worry, don't worry.
I'm gonna I'm gonna patch the room after I replace the pipes.
The pipes? They look fine to me.
You know what? The guy at the hardware store sold me the wrong pipes! But I have the receipt! You know, he said that these pipes would work! He said that I would make the room perfect for Jenny, you know, that's what he said, and now it's just drip, drip, drip, drip - Liam! - Drip, drip, drip, drip, DRIP! I hear it I hear it all the time.
Look, listen to me, okay? It's all in your head.
All right? I'm gonna go talk to him.
There's no leak.
Right? There's no drip, son, and I think you know that.
Take a look.
Oh, oh, Liam! Liam?! Hey.
- Aw, Jesus.
- Where is he going? I don't know, but I'm kinda scared he's gonna do something pretty stupid.
Okay, I'm going after him.
The baby on Kelly's lap was the baby we found here, I'm sure of it.
So the other baby's Kelly's.
- The real Robbie.
- Yeah.
But is he alive or is he dead? And, and if he's alive, then where is he? I'll get missing persons on it.
Malik's on Kelly.
You should've picked her up.
On what charge? A photo of Kelly with two babies - isn't proof of a crime! - Look, I know, I understand that, okay? It's, it's just We have one baby that's dead, potentially another one.
We don't know how she's involved in this.
She tried to kill my father.
I know that I can't prove this.
But I am right about her.
Yes, but my hands are tied.
I can kick it over to Fraud Squad, but that's not gonna help us.
We need to figure out who we found here and we're halfway there.
I'm gonna exhume the baby's body.
It would help if we had some DNA to match it to.
A parent would be nice.
Yeah, but What parent doesn't report their own baby's death? Alison, please.
Someone who doesn't trust the police.
Donovan? Jenny? Open the door, Noor! I know you're in there! Open the door, Noor! Don't make me kick it down! Keep your voice down.
We found your son.
You can't come in here like this! You opened the door.
It's not a good time.
I'm not the guy in the tuxedo here.
I'm Detective McAvoy, with a badge.
It's it's Yusef calling.
- Answer it, then.
- No! Here's my theory.
It was your baby, in the grave, at the community garden.
I saw the ribbon on your wrist.
Just like the one tied to the arch at the garden.
I don't have a baby.
I'll ask him then.
Noor, are you there Get out! Get out! Get out NOW! I saw you with Kelly Hart, Kelly Barken, whatever her name is.
You need to tell me everything you know about her.
Your child is dead, Noor.
I can't help you if you don't talk to me.
You can't help me.
Just tell me what happened.
If I do, I'll never see my husband again.
I'll be right back.
His name is Tesfay.
She's the mother? Yeah.
He's my son.
I I killed my baby.
Liam! Liam! Liam! Liam! Stop! Stop! - Aghhh! - Stop! Just stop! Liam! Please stop! I need to be alone, all right? Leave me alone! No, I'm not leaving! Hey! Hey! Hey! I will tell mom! I will tell mom! Can you Can you, uh, start from the beginning for me? I can only help you if you help us.
I was cleaning the fridge.
Tesfay had a cold.
He was restless.
I was trying to get him down for a nap, and he finally went down, for at least a couple hours.
Then I called his name But he wouldn't wake up.
Was he breathing? I don't know.
Tesfay! Tesfay! And then I panicked and I started doing CPR on him.
His ribs were cracked.
I felt them crack.
Then why didn't you call 911? Would you have believed me? And then what would happen to Yusef? What if I went to jail? Kelly said They would think I killed my son.
She told me she would help me.
My baby was already dead.
She said if the insurance company thought Tesfay was Robbie, she could Use the money to get away from Ed.
My baby! My baby! My baby! Kelly Said that she could solve both of our problems.
Well, she This was an insurance scam! She, she killed Ed, she buried Tesfay in Robbie's place, it's We still don't have a shred of proof she killed Ed, or the baby.
What's gonna happen? - What, Malik? - Yeah, I lost her, Mac.
She went into the store, told the cashier a creep was following her, so he let her out the back door.
We need a new plan fast.
Mom, where are you? Call me! You find anything? The baby is decomposed.
The ribs are crushed.
I looked at Dr.
Allen's autopsy, the first one? Mine is consistent with his.
Well, that doesn't make sense anymore.
The baby was sick.
Maybe he didn't die from crushed ribs.
I need to know the specific cause of death, okay? I need Mariah tickets in Vegas.
Well, I'll bring her to your house if you can find out how Tesfay died.
That's his name.
Hey, Ross.
Sorry I missed your calls.
Is everything okay? Yeah.
No, I'm, I'm coming home.
I'm coming home.
Pfffft! Pfffft! Uh pow! We're finally free.
And then They Ride off into the sunset.
- Very clever.
- Yeah.
I don't know how smart it was attacking a guy with a gun But I guess you got away with it.
Yeah, well, sometimes you just have to pounce, right? Guess so.
Anyway, we do good.
Dad?! - In here.
- Hey.
He's upstairs.
- Are you okay? - Everybody's okay Except for Liam upstairs.
Yeah, I'm gonna uh I'm gonna go talk to him.
What do you think? Let's get outta here.
- Give them some space.
- Yeah? You got ID that says you're 18 on it? - I do.
- Is it legal? - It is.
- Let's go.
- We're going to the casino.
- Okay.
I was uh Gonna patch the bathroom, but uh It's too far gone.
So I have PTSD.
I wanna fight for us.
I don't know how to get better if I stay here.
I love you.
I love you, too.
Look at me.
I'm sorry.
It's okay.
Liam?! Liam?! Hello, Jenny.
- Agghhh! - You did this! - Ow! Please, let me - You! - Jenny, let me explain! - Shut up, Kelly! Shut up! - Agh! - Shut up! You did this! You poisoned my father.
You set that fire.
You killed Ed.
You killed all of those people! You did! You Ooh My I knew if you saw your pills, you'd take them.
Those weren't my pills.
It didn't need to be this way.
I got a call that you were exhuming Robbie's body.
It's not Robbie.
You got me.
It's not.
Too bad you won't be able to prove it.
Ungh! All right.
You're probably getting sleepy And feeling great.
Just give in to it.
Just give in.
Oh, hey, hey, hey, hey.
Come here.
Hey I love you And sweet Ross And Gordon.
Oh! Agh! You have no idea, how lucky you are.
My parents were murdered in front of me, when I was a kid.
I hid under the bed.
All I ever wanted was a family, and you ha-have one.
And you are so obsessed, with your work and with death, that you don't even appreciate them.
Just give in, sweet girl.
Yeah, it's okay.
Okay, there you go.
Just let it go.
You're tired because you've been sleepwalking.
Remember that time you set the kitchen on fire? You just need to get some sleep.
You will be better off.
Everyone will be better off.
No Jenny! Jenny! Donovan, she set my house on fire.
Jenny! Meet me at work.
- You okay? - She drugged me.
- Not your - Regular drug? No.
Uh, then my guess is ketamine.
Yeah, toxicology will confirm.
It's gotta be how she killed Ed.
She drugged him, it incapacitated him, she put oil on the stove, and then she shot him.
We can arrest her for what she did to you.
But don't you want justice for all of her victims? I'm a murder cop.
It's kind of my whole thing, yeah.
Okay, uh Follow me.
All right, take it easy.
He's been cooling in the fridge this whole time.
Kelly never buried his body? No.
She, uh, said she couldn't afford to.
Okay, uh, is there any liquid blood left in the body, that we can test for ketamine, or any other exotic opioids, that don't show up in a blood panel? When he was autopsied, the blood in the heart vessels was cooked.
That's usually the best option, but - But? - It's a long shot, but I think I can milk his thigh.
Milk his? Oh, uh, he's just gonna try to push blood up the femoral artery, if there is any.
Can you hold a cup for me, please? Yeah.
Is that enough? That's enough.
Shh, shh, shh - Hey - Hey.
- You ready? - Yeah, I'm good.
Is there money in there? - Mhmm.
There's enough.
- Enough for us to disappear? Uh Ma'am, stay put.
Please no Not my baby, please.
I didn't do anything! I didn't do anything! That's my son I wanted to show you something.
This was right after we found him.
Okay, see how it's pink and healthy looking? The second time, we took a new section from a different part of his heart.
What are those dots? Those are inflammatory cells.
These cells indicate that he had myocarditis, which is a virus.
It's rare, but It got to his heart.
Noor, it was the virus That killed Tesfay.
You didn't kill your son.
Thank you.
I'd like to thank you for Helping me.
You helped us, so I mean, personally with Yusef.
I just made a call.
I I feel like, in another world, or another time Things would have been different.
It's this world, this time.
May I shake your hand? Yes, please.
Noor! Yusef! - Careful, careful.
- There you go.
- I hate surprises.
