Femme Fatales (2011) s02e07 Episode Script

Family Business

Mr.
Ryan owns this club.
In fact, he owns most of Cuesta Verde, and if he sees you trying to work in his club, well What? What'll he do? He hurts girls like you.
They die scared.
They get a chance to see themselves bleed out.
A person like that, mm someone who gets a thrill out of killing-- you can't control a person like that.
The whole city is terrified by this grim reaper.
It is bad for business.
Three people are dead.
We each have our own priorities.
So you must make sure that this psycho is out of my clubs and off of my streets.
Your streets? Mmhmm.
Mmm.
Ahh.
Don't you know who the hell I am? Don't you know who I am? I hear you like to hurt girls.
Someone once told me there comes a time in your life when you have to decide what kind of man you're gonna be.
I heard that a lot, but never knew what it meant.
Until today.
Today, I finally decided what kind of man I really am.
Son of a bitch.
I like your eyes let's spend the night together I like your hands when they're moving so fast I like you, boy you make me feel much better forget your past, just give me all your best take a little time 'cause I can't wait too long, you know oh, won't you be mine, and you know that I'm strong give me little smile, yeah, you know what I mean, baby come and play my game, you're the best thing I've seen I like you I like you I like you I like you yeah, hey, yeah hey, yeah hey, yeah, hey, yeah Hey, yeah I like your sigh, I like the way you're movin' I like your dress, the way you shake your ass hyuh!

Hell yeah, something's wrong.
Thesearen't my shoes.
Some people never change, do they? Joanne, you're not gonna start lecturing me now, are you? There'll be plenty of time for that when you drive me home.
How 'bout we find your pants first? Works for me.
That works for me.
Ahh.
On second thought you're the detective.
You find 'em.
Yeah, I am.
So why don't you wipe the blow off your nose? This isn't blow.
This isn't blow.
Thisisn't blow.
Okay This is blow.
It's pretty fucking good blow.
Ahh.
Yeah.
I've got my eye on you I've got my eye on you and a motive too your fooling around's getting blood on my shoes oh ooh oh oh-oh oh oh ooh oh oh-oh I've set my sights on you I've set my sights on you got an alibi too so don't look around, I've got nothing to lose ooh oh oh-oh oh oh ooh oh oh-oh oh oh ooh oh oh-oh ooh oh oh-oh oh oh ooh oh oh-oh It was once said that love means never having to say that you're sorry.
Apparently, the copywriter that coined that trite phrase has never actually been in love.
For in fact, anyone who's ever been in love knows love means always having to say that you're sorry.
Devlin Grant is man who's about to be sorrier than he ever dreamed, and get more than he bargained for, in a battle in which the spoils of victory may very well be his own soul.
Oh, where are my clothes? They were soaked in Jack Daniels, so I threw them in the wash.
What have I done for you to be so kind to me, huh, Jo? Nothing.
It's what you're gonna do.
What I'm what? That's right.
What? So this was no coincidence? You running into me after all this time, huh? Here, drink this.
It'll sober you up.
Thanks.
But I usually take mine with a little whiskey to get my day started with a smile.
Maybe you should try lemon.
Party pooper.
Ahh.
So what's this all about, Jo, huh? I mean, our tenth isn't for another year and a half.
Miss me? What? Tear sheets from your Hustler centerfold? Just open it.
Okay, why are you showing me this? It's a friend of mine.
A detective in the 17th.
One of the last honest men left on the force.
John and his family were leaving his son's little league game when Ryan's men used them as target practice.
- And you have proof? - I don't need proof.
I have instinct.
Yeah, but instinct isn't admissible in court, now is it, jo? Look, this town has been a war zone for months with every gang trying to fight over Leland Ryan's table scraps.
The point is, there's been a power vacuum that's been filled once again.
By the Ryans.
Yeah, I-I thought he was killed by some crazy hooker or something.
Oh, Leland's dead, all right.
But I'm not talking about Leland, Dev.
Nicole.
Nicole.
Look, I--I can't get involved.
Oh, you have to.
Why? Because I trust you.
And so does she.
Listen, Dev, there comes a point in your life where you have to decide what kind of man you're gonna be.
Sowhat kind of man are you gonna be? The fuck if I know, okay? The kind that doesn't get asked questions like that.
Look, Nicole has always had a blind spot when it came to you.
You two Just think you can fuckin' change me.
When are you gonna realize I like my life just the way it is.
Maybe.
I know, right? I was gonna say, it's crazy.
Help yourself.
I'm fine.
Say again? Hi.
How are you guys? Good to see you, Mr.
Bannion.
Good to see you.
Ms.
Ryan! I'll call you back.
I can't believe you have the audacity to show up here like this.
And I see you brought your shadow.
If you're trying to intimidate me, not gonna happen.
On the contrary, I made a sizeable donation to your campaign today.
I think you'll make a swell district attorney.
Better than your boy Burke? I like a politician who keeps his dick in his pants.
- Ooh.
- Like you.
You're such a nice family man.
Play your cards right, you could be governor someday.
Hmm.
You can't stop those indictments, Nicole.
I'm not a purse.
You can't buy me.
Okay, will you stop scratching like you have fleas? It's just so not sexy.
That's Devlin.
Follow him.
This dress cost six months' salary.
- You like it, right? - I'm returning it tomorrow.
Like hell you are.
I bought it for you.
What good is having money if you can't spend it, huh? Just wish you'd let me buy you some hot lingerie, too.
Something that doesn't have Fruit of the Loom stamped on the ass.
Shut it.
Ooh, yes.
Enjoy, sir.
No.
You are so lame.
In college, you could drink me under the table.
- I'm on the clock.
- No, you're on a date.
- With you? - Mm-hmm.
- Trust me, this is work.
- Ouch.
Yes? Ms.
Ryan asked me to give this to you.
Oh! Ahh.
Duty calls.
Toodles.
I promise.
You have to come.
No, please.
I'll see you in a minute.
Remind you of anybody? So this is quite the Surprise.
I always said you needed a good shrink.
If you want, I can recommend a few.
You were supposed to call me when you came back to town.
Yeah, I guess I forgot.
You didn't even come to daddy's funeral.
Just didn't feel right.
Last time I saw the guy, he threatened to cut my balls off.
He always did love his Swiss army knife.
- So is it serious? - Is what serious? This thing with Joanne.
What do you think? I think you're still in love with the bitch.
Like I said, see a shrink, babe.
Where are you going? I'm here with somebody, Nic.
Maybe we can catch up some other time.
You have my number.
Call me any time.
Day or night? Preferably nights.
I think I got the message.
So did she take the bait? Yeah, she practically swallowed it whole.
Good.
Yeah.
- Only one thing left to do.
- What's that? Uhh! You lying son of a bitch! What the fuck? You gonna go sniff around that fuckin' gangster whore? You lying fuckin' piece of shit! I fucking hate you! I thought things were gonna be different this time! You fucking asshole! Thank you.
I fucking hate you! Get off of me! You--you're gonna hear-- Can I get a vodka tonic, please? Hold the ice.
I have my own.
Let go of me! Get your hands off of me.
Ohh, God.
Thanks, guys.
That was actually convincing.
That felt good.
Even if I think I did throw out my shoulder.
Going down? Take the next car, please.
I know something that'll make you feel better.
And what's that, Nic? Thanks, but that hasn't worked since I was six.
You--what are you-- What are you doing? Would you believe me if I said "searching for a wire"? Seriously? Can never be too careful.
You are out of your fucking mind.
Either I can do this, or my man Stone can do it.
But I promise you It'll be more fun if I do.
You're not enjoying this, are you? No, not really.
Your cock says otherwise.
Does it, now? Mm.
Mmm.
Won't you burn if you're a star a treat to be held in high regard Please don't stop.
You know that people hardly see you but you're living in a fantasy world all you want is good times baby, you've nothing to lose all you want is good times baby, you've nothing to lose that's only what's right your red hair looks like a sunshine your dress is high and spangled as a rock star It's me you really want.

We'll be home in a few minutes, Ms.
Ryan.
Ah.
Yes.
Ohh.
Yes.
Ohh! God I love the way you taste.
I thought I heard voices.
- Hello, mother.
- Hello.
- You remember Jeff.
- Mrs.
Ryan.
May I speak to you for a moment, Nicole? No.
And you, Mr.
Grant put on some clothes before you catch cold.
I hope I didn't get you in trouble with mommy.
Step-mommy.
Don't worry about Alicia.
She just decided to start being a mother when my father died.
Didn't realize it wasn't in her DNA.
This is nice.
- Hmm.
- I never get to relax.
Why not? Didn't your dad leave you a shitload of money? Yeah.
But I've always had this insatiable desire to do things and make my own path.
I've always had this insatiable desire to spend my entire inheritance.
Yeah, that's your problem.
You have no ambition, no direction.
Really? And you do? You joke, but I'm running a business.
And I'm very, very good at it.
What, uh what business is that? Family business.
Business is business, Dev.
I'm fortunate enough to have a product line that's in high demand.
Sure, I get it-- drugs, gambling.
Sex.
Look, I just don't think this is what your dad had in mind for you, Nic, that's all.
What were you doing with Joanne tonight? I don't think I wanna tell you.
We have ways of making you talk.
What's that, a hammer to the kneecap, a slice to the thumb? Oh, no.
Much, much worse.
Okay, fine.
Fine, fine.
I'll tell you.
I was--I was at this club, all right? And I was macking on the bartender's girlfriend.
I know--and he came after me with a tire iron.
And Joanne was there, and she stepped in.
So I was, uh grateful.
So I went home with her.
But it's like you said, you know? She's always had this thing for me, you know? But she's no fun.
She doesn't even want to fuck.
She just wants me to hold her and pretend I care.
Yeah, I know, but the problem is I never cared.
God, you are beautiful.
Am I? Am I really? No, you're not.
I'm lying.
You're gorgeous.
Uhh! I'd like you to stay, Devlin.
Stay at least a few days? You can have the guesthouse.
Look, we slept together, okay? I'm not moving in.
There's stuff at my apartment I need.
Don't worry about that.
I'll have my men pick up whatever you need.
Jo.
Jo! You must be exhausted after last night.
You knew what I was signing up for when you convinced me to do this.
If it makes you feel any better, I didn't enjoy any of it.
That's not what the audio surveillance sounded like.
Look, I know you think Nic's the antichrist, but I'm not sure you're on the money.
She may have her fingers in some bad pies, but-- Oh, my God.
You're falling for her.
No.
I'm just saying I think your feelings about her are being affected by, well your feelings about her.
Devlin, my feelings about Nicole Ryan have nothing to do with the fact that we used to be friends, or that you dumped me for her.
They have everything to do with the fact that she's a cold-blooded killer, and I'd do anything to put her behind bars before she can hurt anybody else.
And if you can't see that, then I guess I was wrong for getting you involved in the first place.
Yeah.
No.
This is a purely professional relationship.
You get that, right? Yeah.
If I only actually believed that you believe that.
It's too risky to meet every day.
They may have you followed.
I'll see you again next week.
You have my cell in case of emergency.
Hey.
You know what I was wondering? I used to wonder what you were wondering about all the time.
I don't anymore.
See you next week, Devlin.
Hi, Dev.
Alicia.
What're you doing here? I suppose I could ask you the same thing.
Be a dear and get me a towel, will you? Hmm, cute.
Are you gonna answer my question? I think you know why I'm here.
Am I actually supposed to believe that you care about my daughter? Believe whatever you want.
It's the truth.
Mm.
And what about me? You care about me? Please, Alicia, let's not go there again.
You remember what happened the last time.
This isn't The Graduate.
I was drunk and stupid.
And you were-- well, you.
Oh, honey, but you left town.
And you didn't even say good-bye.
Why would you want a girl when you can have a woman? Fact is I love your daughter.
I always have.
And if you cared about her, you would stop.
Mother.
Hello, dear.
Nic.
Nic.
Nic, wait.
Let me explain.
Nic! Jesus, you always run off.
Nic! What you said to her.
Was it true? That you love me? Yes, I do.
All of me? What I do? I love everything about you.
I have to go out for a few hours.
So you want me to leave? No, I want you to come with me.
Yeah.
What the hell are you doing here? Mind if I sit down? I do, actually.
That's too bad.
What do you want, Ms.
Ryan? If it's to offer me another bribe, you know what that'll get ya.
You've been awfully noisy about me and my family in the press lately.
Mmhmm.
And what're you gonna do about it, you gonna kill me? That'd be a bad move on your part, lady.
No, I'm not gonna kill you.
You are.
Am I? Pick it up.
It can wait.
It's my wife.
I know.
I said pick it up, Bannion.
Hello? Wrap yourself around me Lisa? Are you there? I feel you breathing I must be dreaming Lisa? Are you there? I'm sorry, Mr.
Bannion.
Your wife can't come to the phone right now.
She's taking a bath.
She's very pretty.
What the hell are you doing to my wife? Sit down.
Do I have your attention now? Nothing will happen to your wife and children, as long as you do exactly as I say.
Please.
Please, you can't hurt my family.
I watched my father die too.
Trust me.
Your kids'll get over it.
I will do anything, anything you want.
Please don't hurt my children.
You threatened my family.
Now I am threatening yours.
- Look, Nic, I really think-- - Dev.
I'm doing business here.
You could learn something.
There's money in an offshore account in the Caymans under your name.
You could wake up tomorrow a widower and an embezzler, or you could open that drawer, put the gun inside it to your head, and pull the fucking trigger.
I don't care which.
Okay.
Okay.
"Okay" what? Okay, I will do what you want me to do.
Just please don't hurt my family.
Great, let's go.
Oh, and don't disappoint me.
If I don't make that call in the next 60 seconds, your whole family dies.
You're gonna make that call, right, Nic? Yourself around me around me around me Don't worry.
They'll be fine.
What kind of monster do you think I am? Who wants Italian? I'm starving.
Jokes.
She was making jokes.
We sat at dinner, drank wine, and laughed.
I just stood there and I let it happen, Jo.
I'm not gonna let it happen again.
Look, even if I put you on the stand, they're gonna discredit you and your lifestyle.
They'll call it entrapment.
Who knows? What I need is firm, incontrovertible proof.
I'll get it for you.
Anything you need.
Anything, Jo.
No.
This operation is shut down.
It's too dangerous.
You have to leave town today.
Bullshit.
I'm the only one that can get you the evidence you need.
I'm not going anywhere.
I'm not gonna let you end up like Bannion.
That's not why I got you involved.
Why did you get me involved, huh? I don't know.
I don't know.
can't trust anyone starving for love so beware for the heartbreaker come to steal your love deep in the night yeah I'll be guilty of seduction it's been so long without you oh it's been too long without your love so I'm coming in yeah, I'm coming in to steal your love I'm the faith that's breaking in your heart oh, I guess I should confess I'm sneaking up with sweet intentions if that's the crime, I'll do the time 'cause I just can't wait much longer it's been so long without you oh it's been too long without your love so I'm coming in oh, yeah coming in for ya, baby I've missed you.
I've missed me too.
It's been so long without you It's been too long without your love so I'm coming in I love you, Devlin.
Oh, yeah coming in for ya, baby You need to look at these.
I don't need to do anything, Alicia.
I know that you think I hate you.
That I'm only your stepmother and I don't care.
I do care.
You're all I have left.
And even though the blood in your veins is not my blood, I would do anything to protect it.
What are we gonna do, mom? Today, I finally decided what kind of man I truly am.
I never got my old man's approval, but maybe I'll get yours.
Hey, Nic, sorry we missed each other earlier.
I had to meet someone for lunch.
What do you say you, um Come to me tonight for a change, huh? Your mom's kind of creeping me out.
Anyway, I can't wait to see you.
It'll be a night to remember.
We needed proof.
Real proof.
Proof that a dirty judge or a high-paid mouthpiece couldn't dismiss.
It was the only way to be sure she would pay for what she'd done.
For once in my life, I took responsibility for my life.
I did it for you, Joanne.
You were my one true love.
Someone once told me there comes a time in your life when you have to decide what kind of man you're gonna be.
I heard that a lot, but never knew what it meant.
Until today.
Today, I finally decided what kind of man I really am.
Son of a bitch.
Devlin! Devlin, open up.
Oh I did it for you, Joanne.
You were my one true love.
And you always will be.
Blow does strange things to the mind.
Who knows what these people were thinking? All I can say is that I tried to help him.
Can you say the same? You're talking to me, Nicole.
I know all your bullshit, so cut the crap.
Do I really need my lawyer here, when what you want to charge me with isn't a crime? What's that, Nic? - Theft.
- Theft? I stole your boyfriend's heart.
Too bad it's not beating anymore.
Too bad for you.
How so? I'm not the only one that knows the way you think.
Devlin did too.
Devlin was a child.
He just wanted to play.
That may be true, but all children grow up eventually.
Devlin knew what you would do, and what you were capable of, and he recorded everything.
You're a sadistic monster.
You think I could love somebody like you? I never want to see you again.
That can be arranged.
No! No one's gonna miss a worthless addict like you, Devlin.
Let's go.
Tell Warden Jeffers to keep Nicole Ryan in solitary confinement.
You'll take care of it? You're worse than she is, you know.
I did what needed to be done.
Sure you did.
Telling me to have Devlin followed that night? You knew Nicole would go crazy when she found out you were still in the picture.
I needed proof that would put Nicole away forever, and I got it.
Besides, we both got what we wanted.
Except the boy.
Except the man.
Back in '87 back when life was small Hey, you must be my roommate.
Hey.
You'd think, for all the money that I donate to Cuesta Verde University, the provost would give you your own room.
Don't be a jerk, daddy.
Hi, I'm Nicky Ryan.
Hey, Joanne.
Nice to meet you.
I'll take that as my cue.
Sweetheart, I gotta go.
You be a good girl.
I love you.
You know better than that, Daddy.
Seem to just roll by 'cause we always knew when we were young questions went unanswered doubts were pushed aside but we always knew when we were young honestly, we could see everything was clear nothing ever bothered me that's how it appeared rides in cars and beer cans seemed to just roll by 'cause we always knew when we were young yes, I always knew when we were young 'cause I always knew when we were young when we were young when we were young Kill, Ubu, kill! Good fish.
