Devious Maids s04e02 Episode Script

Another One Wipes the Dust

1 Previously on "Devious Maids" Are you having fun watching your book get made into movie? It's not what I expected.
Take it up with the head of the studio.
Peri Westmore is twisting this movie into something I hate.
Why don't we have dinner tonight talk about it.
I'm Daniela! Your cousin Josefina's daughter? That girl's your daughter? I was a just teenager.
So she doesn't even know she's adopted? I want to divorce Adrian.
You seem so devoted to him.
Now that he's an invalid I can't, or everyone will think I'm a monster.
As long as I'm in this chair, she won't leave me, which is why I'm paying you to keep my little secret.
You had to make a choice between the life of a baby and my life, and you made the wrong one.
Fashion exec just bought this place.
She's gonna be gone for six months.
She needs a maid to help her unpack.
[Doorbell rings.]
Uh, a gift for the new homeowner.
I'm so glad I bought this house.
Six months ago, Spence suffered a traumatic brain injury.
Spence is remembering things again.
You called my sponsor? Just talk to Ben.
Fine.
Now, where should we begin? You should spend some time with Ben.
He really puts things in perspective.
You were right.
Something weird's going on at that house.
Peri is tricking you.
You're out of your mind.
I remember.
I know the truth.
You're gonna pay for what you did! Oh, my God.
Mrs.
Genevieve? Are you awake? What? - What time is it? - 6:00 A.
M.
I know you said not to wake you till 7:00 [Sighs.]
I must look a frightful mess.
Did you wear earrings to bed? Oh.
This is just my sleep jewelry.
Rosie, why am I awake right now? I'm so sorry, but I've got wonderful news, and I had to tell somebody.
Well, lucky me.
When I woke up, I looked at my phone and there were 15 missed calls from Spence! Dear, it's very early.
Is there a brief version of this story? After I left the party last night, Spence remembered everything how awful Peri was, how he fell in love with me.
That's terrific.
Listen.
[Cellphone beeps.]
[ Slurring.]
Rosie, it's me again.
Spence.
Oh, I wish I was saying this to your face your pretty, pretty face.
Is he drunk? He sounds drunk.
No, Spence doesn't drink.
He must have been tired.
Anyway, I love you, and I'm gonna do whatever it takes for us to be together whatever it takes.
[Cellphone beeps.]
Isn't that romantic? - I tried calling him back, but - Yes, wonderful story.
Rosie, would you be a dove and bring me some coffee? Coming right up! Peri Westmore, who was brutally killed in the early hours of this morning.
Peri? Police have indicated former husband Spence Westmore is the prime suspect.
Santo Dios! Now, now, that doesn't necessarily mean that he did it.
Witnesses saw them engaged in a violent confrontation at a party last night.
And our news team On the bright side, I guess he really would do anything to be with you.
Because it's my life! Oh, this is why I don't tell you anything! Hey.
I was just doing some, um, sweeping.
Where's your broom? Anyway, I thought I heard some shouting.
And is everything okay? [Sighs.]
I told my mom I'm moving to L.
A.
, and she freaked out.
Wait, what? You're you're moving here? When did that happen? Well, I've been thinking.
If I want to be a singer, I have to be here.
I thought you would be happy.
Oh, I am! It's been so nice having you for a week.
It's just that, um, L.
A.
is muy expensive.
So? I'm crashing here for free.
But you can not mooch off the Powells forever.
That's my gig.
And besides, you want to be a singer, you have to pay for studio time, for head shots, for for hair, for makeup.
- I know.
- You don't even have a job.
No.
No.
You have to go back to San Juan and and save the money and And come back in a few months? Or years, or never at all.
Who knows what the future will bring? [Doorbell rings.]
Marisol Suarez? Oh, my God.
Are those for me? Where do you want them? Uh, on the table there, please.
Yeah.
Thank you.
"I didn't know what kind of flowers you liked, so I got them all.
Peter.
" That's - Thank you.
- You're welcome.
I want Publicity to sign off on that before the press conference.
[Cellphone rings.]
Hey.
Peter, I am standing in the middle of a garden in my living room.
- What? - The Flowers.
They're so beautiful.
Roses, lilies, carnations.
No, this is not what I wanted.
Really? I like carnations.
I know.
They get a bad rap, but Marisol, I'm sorry.
I wasn't talking to you.
Oh.
Oh, well, anyway, uh, it's very thoughtful and romantic.
Oh, and get me Roger in legal, okay? Unlike this phone call.
[Sighs.]
I'm sorry.
[Chuckling.]
Really, I am swamped today.
Can, um can we meet for dinner? - Sure.
- Great.
After a day like this, it would be really nice to see you.
Peter, what's wrong? Wh you didn't hear about Peri? Oh, God.
What's she done now? She was murdered.
What?! Yeah.
Peri Westmore's dead.
So is your film.
Earlier today, we reported on the murder of actress Peri Westmore in her Beverly Hills home.
I am so sorry, Mrs.
Genevieve, but can you watch Miguel? I would never ask, but I need to see Spence because of thing.
Peri's gruesome murder? Yes.
And please no TV for Miguel.
I don't want him to know what happened.
Of course.
Not a word about Spence being the likely killer.
Mm-hmm.
Oye, Miguel, be a good boy for Mrs.
Genevieve.
I'll be back later, hmm? Let's go now to PHT Studios.
Oh, my God.
- Peter.
- Good morning.
I'm Peter Hudson, the president of PHT Studios.
Who's Peter? My husband.
Well, ex-husband.
Tragic loss, beloved star Peri Westmore.
You were married to that guy? Oh, yes.
Husband number three the youngest man I ever married.
Just look at him.
Every bit as handsome as he was on our wedding day.
I know I have a picture somewhere.
My mom's only been married twice.
Oh, well, give her time.
Maybe this is a sign that Peter and I should get back together.
I always wondered if our age difference was a problem.
You see, back then, Peter was in his late 20s and I was in my early 40s, but now he must be at least 50, and I'm still in my 40s.
Wait, how can you still be in your Nobody likes a mathematician, sweetie.
Ah, here it is.
Oh, look at us.
So in love.
Miguel, we're going on a field trip.
Fetch me my Jimmy Choos.
I'm 10.
I don't know what that is.
Ah, the sparkly heels with the pointy toes.
Okay.
Peter Hudson, the one who got away.
I can't believe this thing with Spence.
- Have you talked to Rosie? - Yeah.
She wants to meet at the café to talk.
Why can't we have coffee here? I mean, you're getting paid to live at a fancy house with no boss.
Let's get some of the perks.
[Chuckles.]
[Doorbell rings.]
I have to get that.
Just stay here.
Hi.
Hey.
Sorry to keep popping by unannounced.
Can I come in? I have a friend over, and she's shy.
Maybe later? I have an extra ticket to the polo match.
Please tell me you're a polo fan.
I adore polo.
My friends are constantly saying, "Zoila, stop talking about polo.
" [Chuckles.]
Great.
I'll come by at 4:00.
I can't wait.
See you later.
[Quiet chuckling.]
[Gasps.]
- What was that? - Nothing.
Rich neighbors don't invite maids to polo matches, unless you're gonna clean the horse poo! No! No, no, no.
Um, the other day, I was drinking and trying on the owner's gowns, which wasn't as weird as it sounds now.
Um, anyway, this really cute guy came over and assumed I owned the house, so I just went with it.
Are you kidding me? I know.
It was a mistake.
I have to tell him the truth.
No! That's the best thing you've ever done! You have to keep lying.
I actually like you for once.
Okay, so I was thinking about this fabric for the drapes.
What do you think? Vertical stripes for the windows? Like a prison? A simple "no" would have sufficed.
What's with you today? It's Adrian.
Doctor said he'll never walk again.
I am so sorry.
All I want is to be free of this marriage.
Now because Adrian's too stupid to get out of the way of a falling ceiling beam, I'm stuck.
[Sighs.]
Hypothetically, say there was a tragedy and someone's husband was severely injured.
I'm with you.
How soon after could this woman divorce - Never.
- But wait.
What if she made a charitable donation? No.
Even if the charity was the inner city children's - animal? - No! If you divorce Adrian now that he's disabled, everyone at the club will crucify you! - Unless - What? Unless Adrian did something terrible to you.
You know, like had an affair.
But obviously that's not possible anymore? Oh, it's possible.
Oh, so he didn't lose the use of everything below the waist? God, no.
You couldn't kill that man's penis with a stick.
- I know.
I tried once.
- Okay.
Well, if he did have an affair, you'd be the victim, and nobody would fault you for leaving.
[Cellphone rings.]
His ears must have been burning.
- What is it? - And hello to you, too.
I can't find the good bourbon, just the battery acid we serve guests.
The construction workers were nipping from the bottle, so I put it on the top shelf.
I can't reach that from the wheelchair.
You know that.
Yes, I do know that.
Cheers.
[Cellphone beeps.]
[Sighs.]
Hello?! Anyone there?! Mr.
Powell?! You can walk?! Any chance this stays between us? [Reporters shouting indistinctly.]
Are there reporters still all down the block? Yeah, it's crazy.
Where is Spence? He's talking to the police.
And I've been keeping Tucker away from it all.
Does he know what happened to his mommy? He knows, but I don't think he understands.
I don't even understand.
I should get back to him.
All right, Spence is in the dining room.
Let me know if you need anything else.
I told you a hundred times.
I don't know what time I got home.
I don't remember anything.
Yeah, but you said you got your memory back.
I did.
But then I started drinking and I blacked out.
So you remember everything except last night? - [Sighs.]
- Awfully convenient.
Spence! I came as soon as I heard.
Who are you? I'm his wife.
Well, I used to be.
Before I screwed everything up.
No, I'm the one who screwed up.
Why don't I give you a minute? I got your messages all of them.
I called you? Last night.
You said you wanted to be together again.
That must have been before Oh, my God, Rosie, they think that I killed Peri.
- I know, but you didn't.
- I don't know! I remember being angry, but I don't know Stop! You didn't kill anyone.
How can you be so sure? Because I know you.
And you are the sweetest, most gentle man in the world.
I know you're not a killer.
Spence Westmore, you're under arrest for the murder of Peri Westmore.
What? No, no, he didn't do it! We found his fingerprints on the murder weapon.
Oh, my God, Rosie.
You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can And will be used against you.
Let's go.
No, no, there are no plans to recast Peri's role.
Out of respect, we're going to shut down production.
Y Hello, Peter.
I'm going to have to call you back.
Your secretary must have stepped away.
[Chuckles.]
Genevieve, I'm surprised to see you.
How long has it been? Too long.
[Both chuckle.]
I just saw your press conference on TV, and I noticed you weren't wearing a wedding ring.
I was discussing Peri Westmore's brutal murder, and that was your takeaway? Well, that and your hair still looks fantastic.
[Chuckles.]
You never change.
Thank you.
My surgeon's very good.
Anyway, um boy, it's really great to see you, but bit of a busy day for me.
Yes.
You're running a studio.
I had no idea.
When we were married, you were just an errand boy.
Junior executive.
Perhaps I didn't fully appreciate you back then.
You know, this has been great, but can we catch up at a later time? Yes, how about dinner tonight? Uh, can't do tonight.
Right.
You're so busy.
They work you like a dog, don't they? I'll reach out when I have a little more time.
Okay, it's a date.
[Scoffs.]
Genevieve, it's great to see you.
And? And, as always, you look beautiful.
Aww.
You don't have to say that.
[Both chuckle.]
How'd it go? Clearly he's still very attracted to me.
I just wish he was free for dinner tonight.
How about dessert? Everybody loves dessert.
Hmm.
I know you didn't mean that as innuendo, but that's a good idea.
Miguel, fetch the car.
Still 10.
Oh.
And then they took Spence away in handcuffs, but they've got the wrong guy.
Spence didn't do this.
Well, if he did it, I wouldn't blame him.
Peri was a real "see you next Tuesday.
" Carmen, the woman just died.
Yeah.
Then what's happening next Tuesday? [Sighs.]
How is Spence? God, he must be so scared.
Is he afraid they're gonna send him to the chair? Hey! It's not gonna happen.
California doesn't even have the death penalty anymore.
Oh, thank God.
They might bring it back for a celebrity like Peri.
- No.
- No.
Somebody else must have killed Peri someone who really hated her.
- Like you? - What? I didn't I didn't hate Peri.
She was destroying your movie.
Okay, I hated her.
But so did everyone who's ever met her.
That's true.
So many people hated Peri.
I don't even know where to start.
Look, you don't have to find the real killer.
You just have to prove that Spence had an alibi.
Good.
Yes.
I'm just so worried.
Honey, is any part of you worried that Spence might have done this? Of course not! You all knew him.
You worked for him.
And when he got drunk, he was a totally different person.
One time, I thought he was gonna kill me.
But he didn't.
I'm alive! Yay.
Excuse me.
I understand you're handling the Peri Westmore case? I need to speak with Spence.
You his lawyer? Just a friend.
Well, he can always speak with his lawyer.
Maybe we can make an exception.
Yeah, well, I don't make exceptions.
I understand.
Hey.
I need a favor.
[Hurried footsteps approach.]
Carmen, Carmen! Mr.
Powell can walk.
What? Since when? He's been faking this whole time so Mrs.
Powell won't leave him! I want to be shocked, but it makes sense.
Powells be crazy.
Mr.
Powell said if I keep his secret, he'll give me anything I want.
Wow.
So I asked for a job.
I'm gonna be working here as a maid! He offered you anything and you asked to be a maid?! You idiot! Ow! That's the worst blackmail ever! You could have asked him for a car or cash or something good! This is good! Now that I have a job, I don't have to go back home.
I can stay here forever.
You gave Danni a job?! I did.
And judging by your tone and bulging forehead vein, you're upset about it? She was this close to going home.
You got to fire her! No.
I have a mop, and I know how to use it.
Really? Well, you've never used one before.
Okay, I didn't want to do this, but if you don't fire Danni, I'm gonna tell Mrs.
Powell your legs work! Daniela told you? Another reason to fire her.
So, what's it gonna be? Mrs.
Powell! - I wouldn't do that.
- Why not? Because if you do, I'll roll on down to young Daniela's room and tell her you're her mother.
Well, it appears we're stuck at a blackmail impasse.
My favorite kind of impasse.
[Sighs.]
Can I just say that you are very good at divot stomping.
Oh, well, I've had lots of practice stomping all those grapes at my friends' vineyards.
[Chuckles.]
I hope you had fun today.
I did.
It's been a long time since I've had that much fun.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
I think you're pretty great.
Kyle, is that you? Oh, you have company.
I'm the worst.
[Chuckles.]
This is Zoila.
Zoila, this is my mother.
[Sighs.]
You didn't mention your mother was visiting.
Oh, she's not visiting.
She lives here.
I'm his mother and his roommate.
[Chuckles.]
Isn't that fun? This is a great building.
Thanks.
I always thought I would sell and buy a house with a yard when I had kids, but - No kids? - Nope, you? Me what? Do you have any kids? Well, of of course I do.
That's the subject of my book.
I was fighting to prove my son's innocence? Hmm, right.
[Chuckles.]
I'm sorry.
Here we are.
Have you even read my book? If it helps, my assistant read it.
Well, maybe I should date him.
[Sighs.]
My studio turns hundreds of books into movies.
I can't read every single one.
I poured everything into that book.
It's basically me in 300 pages.
I just I thought I was special.
Would I have bought you five billion flowers if I didn't think you were special? Peter, darling, I've been waiting for you.
Oh, my God.
Genevieve.
You're naked.
Marisol? What the hell are you doing here? Your doorman let me in.
How do you two know each other? We're dating.
How do you two know each other? We used to be married.
You didn't know? How embarrassing for you.
Oh, Carmen! It's 11:00 A.
M.
I assumed you'd be napping.
Hello.
I'm confused.
You look like Carmen, and yet you're cleaning.
I'm Danni, Carmen's cousin.
And your new maid.
- How have we not met? - I don't know.
I've been staying in the east wing the past week.
Oh, it's such a large house.
I rarely travel east of the game room.
Anyway, Mr.
Powell gave me the job.
- Why would he do that? - I guess he liked me? I'm sure he did.
My husband has always had a soft spot for young Latina maids.
I swear there's nothing going on between me and your husband.
Yes, but would you be open to the possibility? The police think Peri was killed between 1:00 and 3:00 A.
M.
What time did Spence leave the party? Around 11:00.
And I didn't see him again till the morning when I came for work.
Did he say where he was going? No.
No, he didn't.
He was very drunk and angry.
I could barely get the keys away from him.
You took his keys? Yeah, I didn't want him to drive.
So wherever Spence went, he had to walk.
And I bet he was looking for a place to drink.
There's at least a dozen bars nearby that he could have been at.
So I'll go to all of them.
Listen, Rosie.
What? You had already left the party by then, but Spence was really mad at Peri.
Is there any chance that the police are right about him? Jesse, if you took Spence's keys, then how did he get back in the house? Someone must have left the door unlocked.
The killer.
Spence is innocent, and I'm going to prove it.
So, how is it going with the neighbor guy? Have you been on his yacht? - Turns out there's a problem.
- No, no, no.
He's cute and rich and he lives right next door.
Don't ruin this! He lives with his mother.
Dump him.
Carmen, I think I might really like him.
He lives with his mommy.
He's probably a serial killer.
Maybe there are health issues? Maybe she falls down a lot? Or maybe he's just being a good son.
Or maybe he's gonna skin you and turn you into candles.
[Sighs.]
I hope you don't mind me stopping by.
Not at all.
Just promise to keep your clothes on.
Ah, I'll do my best.
[Chuckles.]
I just want to apologize for what happened at Peter's.
It's okay.
I have to admit, your body is amazing.
Oh, it is, isn't it? I weirdly can't stop thinking about it.
I'd love to know your beauty secrets.
Daily exercise, good genetics, and never eat a portion larger than a nickel.
Uh, I'll have to try that.
[Chuckles.]
I'm so glad we can share secrets like this, friend to friend.
Okay.
Friend to friend.
Sure.
And since we're friends, I know you won't mind me asking.
Please stop dating Peter.
What? Seeing you around town, romancing my ex, well, it would hurt me deeply.
You understand.
Genevieve, if I couldn't date any of your exes, there'd be no men left in Beverly Hills.
But friends don't go out with each other's exes.
That's a rule.
I wouldn't really call us friends.
You just said we were a minute ago.
I was being polite.
But you've been to my home.
I've been to a lot of homes.
And we shared beauty secrets.
One secret.
And good genetics? Not a big secret.
I've known you for years.
We run in the same circles.
We even belong to the same book club.
Oh, my God.
We are friends.
I certainly think of you that way.
You are so smart, and you have so much poise.
I just think the world of you, Marisol.
That's kind of you to say.
Well, I mean it.
So, you'll stop seeing him? Uh, can I think about it? Absolutely.
[Chuckles.]
But in the end, I know you'll make the right choice.
I have your tea, Mr.
Powell.
Thank you, Daniela.
It's refreshing to ask for something once and actually receive it.
How do you like your tea? Black, like my American Express.
Careful.
It's very hot.
- Uh - Here.
Let me help you sip it.
Daniela, what's happening here? I'm seducing you.
But usually I have to cajole or trick or pay for this sort of thing.
But don't you want me? Oh it's not a matter of want.
Excuse me.
Sorry.
No.
But your wife isn't home.
Evelyn is like carbon monoxide.
You might not be able to see her, but she can still kill you.
I'm sorry.
I'm so embarrassed.
Don't be.
I'm very flattered, but let's just forget this ever happened, okay? No one needs to ever know.
[Indistinct conversations.]
You here to drink or dance? You look like a dancer.
[Chuckles.]
That's sweet, but no.
I've been checking all the bars nearby.
I want to know if anyone saw my friend here the other night, hmm? Oh, yeah, I know him.
He's the guy that killed that actress.
No, no, he didn't.
That's why I need to find someone who saw him.
He could have been here.
We were jammed.
If he got a lap dance, one of the girls might remember.
But which girl? What's his type? I think I know.
Ben.
Are you allowed to be here? Apparently your friend knows people in high places.
Make it quick.
She's a charmer.
[Sighs.]
So how you doing? Peri's dead.
I'm in jail.
How do you think I'm doing? Well, I brought you this.
It's got to be better than whatever swill they serve in here.
Thanks.
My lawyer said I could go to jail for the rest of my life.
That's why I need you to focus.
We need to find out who really killed Peri or else we'll never get you out of here.
You don't think I killed her? I trust you, man.
Now come on.
Try to remember what happened.
Hey, I'm here to help.
Okay, you pervert, let's watch you at work.
- What's that? - Oh, my God.
- Are you spying on me? - Me? You're the freak watching your husband read a book.
I set up a hidden camera to see what he's up to.
Do all the rooms have cameras? Because sometimes I sit when I clean the TV remote and it accidentally turns on.
Wait, is is that Danni? What is she doing? She shouldn't be doing that! Quítate! Carmen, please stop yelling at the screen like a patron in an urban movie theater.
Why is she on top of him? I made a deal with your cousin to try to coax Adrian into having an affair.
To sleep with Mr.
Powell? That's disgusting.
Well, you're preaching to the choir, but I need to trap Adrian into doing something underhanded.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
He can walk.
[Laughter.]
So, how long have the two of you lived here? Almost a year.
Hard to believe given the bad shape the house was in when we bought it.
Oh! So you moved in to help her fix it up! Oh, God, no.
[Chuckles.]
I'm the handy one.
Kyle has many skills.
Together: But none of them involve a hammer! [Both laugh.]
Ha.
Sorry.
It's just an inside joke.
[Chuckles.]
[Chuckles.]
So, it must be nice to have your son around in case of illness or I haven't had a cold in 40 years.
Nah, she's gonna outlive us all.
So, is the plan to stay here for a while the two of you? I don't see why not.
Mother, this dinner is delicious.
Oh, I'm so glad you like it.
You know, I was trying to copy that mahi mahi we had in Oahu.
- [Chuckling.]
Oh, yeah.
- Remember? You two travel together? Well, sometimes.
We just got back from Machu Picchu.
Oh, we should show her the photo album.
Oh! - You are gonna die.
- Mmhmm.
[Sighs.]
I'm dying already.
Hi.
That was a very nice dance.
Do you have a minute? Oh, 20 bucks for a lap dance.
Oh.
No, I just want to ask you a couple of questions.
Honey, I don't get paid to talk, and my manager's right over there.
What's it gonna be? What's your name? Cinnamon.
Oh, that's pretty.
I'm Rosie.
[Gasps.]
Wow.
I That's never happened to me before.
So, listen, did you see this man at the club the other night? Oh, yeah, he was here.
You remember him? He was wasted.
He kept on wanting me to call him "Mr.
Spence.
" It really got his engines going, if you know what I mean.
Yeah, I wish I didn't.
Do you remember Oh.
Did Cinnamon, please.
Do Do Stop! How long was Spence here? Do you remember what time he left? I guess he was here a few hours.
He passed out.
I had to kick him out around closing time.
It was around 4:00.
So he was here between 1:00 and 3:00 and not at home? That's what I just said.
Ah, thanks, Cinnamon! I'm so happy, I could kiss you.
I don't kiss, honey.
But for another $50, you can spank me.
Maybe next time, hmm? Maybe we should get away this weekend.
I have a place up in Santa Barbara - right near the beach.
- Mmhmm.
Hey.
Something on your mind? Genevieve wants me to stop seeing you.
[Chuckling.]
Who cares what Genevieve wants? I do? Look, she is really upset about it, and I don't want to hurt her.
So, you're giving up? You're not even gonna put up a fight? That's not like you.
You barely know me.
What happened when you couldn't afford Stanford? Did you give up? No, you got two jobs and a scholarship.
How did you know that? Or when you learned you couldn't have kids, did you just throw in the towel? No, you went and adopted Eddie and became such a devoted mother that when he was framed for murder, you went undercover as a maid to prove his innocence.
You're a fighter.
You read my book.
Stayed up all night.
[Chuckles.]
It was a great read, by the way.
They should make a movie out of it.
[Chuckles.]
[Chuckles.]
It was a mistake not to read it, and I'm sorry.
You're forgiven.
- Good.
- Hmm.
Because I think there's something between us.
I don't know what it is yet, but I really want to find out.
Don't you? Oh, and that's our last night.
The hotel had a big party for all the guests.
Kyle and I were the only ones there who weren't a couple.
You don't say.
Kyle, honey, why don't you go start the dishes, and Zoila and I will clean up in here? Oh, sure thing.
Okay, spill it.
What? You think this is totally weird.
No.
No! Liar.
I know we're probably too close, but it's all me.
I mean, Kyle just wants me to be happy, so he indulges me.
Kyle's a good man.
"Man.
" That's still funny to me.
I'll always think of him as my miracle baby.
I had a whole handful of miscarriages before I had him.
It was an awful time.
It was this cloud of loss hanging over me.
I'm so sorry.
Well, it's all right.
I had Kyle, and it was all sunshine.
Are you okay? Well, let's just say I understand.
Come here.
What did you do that for? You looked like you needed it.
And I'm right next door if you need another one.
Or a cookie.
I sometimes have those.
[Chuckles.]
Thank you.
Oh, I didn't realize how late it was.
It's time for Kyle's bath.
Gotcha.
[Laughs.]
Don't you ever knock? You tried to seduce Mr.
Powell?! What were you thinking? I was following your advice.
My advice? You said always blackmail for something good, so I made a deal.
I seduce Mrs.
Powell's husband and she introduces me to a music producer.
Wait.
Mrs.
Powell knows a music producer? Yep, and now I will, too.
Relax, Carmen.
Nothing happened.
But what if Mr.
Powell said yes? You were gonna sleep with him? You're just mad Big Red asked me instead of you.
If she asked me, I would have said no.
Hmm.
Maybe that's why you're still a maid.
[Scoffs.]
Well, this is a surprise.
Steven, this is my wife, Evelyn.
This is Steven, our new accountant.
He's never been to the club before You troll.
She was never very good with terms of endearment.
What kind of game are you playing here, Adrian? My dear, I have no idea what you're talking about.
The only reason I've been staying with you is because I didn't want people to think I was a monster for divorcing a cripple! - [Gasps.]
- Yes! You are right to gasp, because you actually are a cripple.
This man is only pretending to be a cripple! Perhaps you should stop saying "cripple.
" - Get out of that chair! - But I can't! Uh, Evelyn, have you lost your mind? You said if he did something horrible, I could divorce him! - Did he cheat on you? - Worse He can walk! Please! Don't hurt me! Get your lousy ass out of this chair! [Shouts.]
[Crowd gasps.]
You're a monster.
No, I am not a monster! I am the victim! Gail, tell them that I'm not a monster! Gail, Gail! She's a monster.
I had a lovely time tonight.
- Are you sure? - [Chuckles.]
I know my mother and I are a little close.
I get it if you want to run away screaming.
Your mother's great.
I can see why you want to spend time with her.
See you soon? You know where I live.
[Door opens, closes.]
You like her, don't you? Yeah, I really do.
I like her, too a lot.
[Chuckles.]
But not for you.
I have other plans for you, Kyle.
[Door closes.]
Mrs.
Delatour, Marisol Suarez to see you.
Oh.
How lovely of you to stop by.
That will be all, Miguel.
Why is Rosie's son answering your front door? I've taken him under my wing.
Turns out he has great potential.
And he's an excellent driver.
Would you like to sit? No.
No, I'm not staying.
I just wanted to let you know that I've thought about the situation with Peter.
I knew you'd come around.
I'm not breaking up with him.
He's great, and I think I owe it to myself to see where it goes.
Oh, I see.
Well, I appreciate your telling me that in person.
I really don't want to hurt you, but I just felt it best to be up front and honest.
Of course.
And I suppose it was a lot of me to ask of you anyway.
[Sighs.]
So, you understand? I do.
Completely.
Thank you.
It's such a relief.
Marisol? Just one more thing.
This means war.
Well, I'm not sure what got into you this evening, but if you feel like discussing it For God's sake, Adrian.
Give it up.
I know you can walk.
I have it all on video.
Ah.
That's why Daniela tried to seduce me.
You set me up.
Very clever.
Now that everyone thinks I'm a monster anyway, I'm leaving you.
Evelyn, we were meant to be together.
I was willing to stay in that chair forever to keep you.
Look at the lengths you went to entrap me.
There was a time when that sort of cat-and-mouse excited me, but now I'm tired of it.
I'm tired of you! But we're both so deliciously twisted.
You're the only person who can match me blow for blow.
Well, I'm sorry, Adrian, but from now on, you'll just have to blow yourself.
Detective? I need to talk to you.
I can prove Spence is innocent.
You can? He was at a club at the time that Peri was killed.
I have a witness.
Her name is Cinnamon.
She's a stripper who works there.
Uh-huh.
That's her name and number.
You've got to question her.
And how did you get this stripper to say what you needed her to say? Did you give her money? No! Well, yes, for a lap dance.
I see.
Well, ma'am, this case is closed.
We've already got a confession.
- What? - Spence just confessed.
We're taking his statement right now.
I was furious 'cause Peri lied to me for months.
I couldn't let her get away with it.
So what did you do? I killed her.
I killed Peri.
