Heartland (CA) s10e17 Episode Script


1 Previously on "Heartland" The reason I invited Mitchfor dinner yesterday was that we wanted to tell everyone about us.
About our relationship.
Maybe luch at Maggies tomorrow? - You're sure? - Positive.
Hanging out, having lunch.
That's what friends do, right? (Coughing violently) W-we're going back.
Bob? What's going on? Where is Ty? Well, Ty is a little sick and he missed his flight.
I need to see him.
And I'll have him on a plane as soon as I can.
I promise.
Um, excuse me.
My husband Ty Borden, he was brought here by an ambulance.
Is he okay? Why don't you have a seat.
I'll let the doctor know you're here.
Thank you.
What did they say? We have to wait for a doctor.
I don't get it? He was totally fine when we got on the plane, but he just got worse and worse.
Well, he's getting the help he needs now.
That's all that matters.
Mitch: (Whistles) Hey, pretty good arm you got on you.
(Sighs) Turns out throwing stuff is very therapeutic.
Bad day at the office? One of our major investors just pulled out at the last minute.
I guess she doesn't like our design or location; things she should have mentioned months ago.
Sorry, babe.
What? You can find another investor, right? Yeah.
Not this late in the game.
Nicole and I are actually talking about pulling the plug on the whole thing.
Honestly, I am, sort of, relieved.
I mean, believe me, the failure part drives me crazy, but at least I wouldn't have to travel so much.
I could spend more time at home with the girls and you.
I am sure you'll figure this investor thing out.
You always do.
But let's say hypothetically - you decide to give it all up - Oh yeah? Spend some more time here at the ranch, wouldn't exactly be complaining.
What would I do with all that free time? - I have a few ideas.
- Oh, yeah? - Yeah.
- Like what? Well (Cell phone rings) Hold that thought.
Grandpa? Hi, grandpa.
Lou, listen, I'm at the, I'm at the hospital.
Is Amy having the baby? No, it's not Amy, it's Ty.
He collapsed when he got off the plane.
- What, is he okay? - Well, we don't know.
By the time we got to the airport, the ambulance had already left.
Okay, I'll be right there.
No, Lou, you don't have to do that.
You just stay put for now.
I'll, I'll call you as soon as I hear anything.
I gotta go! (Beeps phone off) Dr.
Holt: Are you Ty Borden's wife? Yes I am.
Is he all right? Your husband has severe pneumonia.
He was hypotensive when he came in, but we've stabilized him and put him on some antibiotics.
Is there something I should know that might explain why he's so sick? A preexisting condition? Something like that? No, but he was in Mongolia for the last four months.
Yeah, I was with him.
He's been sick off and on, but nothing like this.
Just the flu.
He seemed better when he got on the plane.
What part of Mongolia were you in? The Gobi desert.
In a camp.
Okay, what were the conditions like? Hm.
Pretty rustic, but we had clean water.
It seemed okay.
What about lice or fleas? There were ticks.
Ty got bitten a few times.
Holt: Okay, I'm gonna run a few tests and I'll get back to you as soon as I know more.
Can I see him? Not until we know whether or not he's contagious.
He's gonna be okay though, right? Well, if he responds to the antibiotics, yes.
But I have to be very honest with you, your husband is very sick.
- I'm worried about sepsis.
- What is sepsis? It's what happens when the body's response to infection starts to injure its own organs.
It's very serious.
But we're going to do everything we can to make sure it doesn't happen.
I'll update you as soon as I know something.
Thank you.
(Worried sigh) S10E17 Dreamer And at the break of day you sank into your dream You dreamer Oh, oh, oh, oh You dreamer You dreamer Hey.
What part of don't come to the hospital did you not understand? Hi.
How are you doing, honey? I'm okay.
So what do we know? Ty has pneumonia.
Pneumonia? Well, that's treatable, right? It's bad.
They don't know why he is so sick.
What do you mean they don't know why? Well, they're trying to figure it out.
Well, that's unbelievable.
Excuse me.
I need to see the doctor who's taking care of Ty Borden.
- And you are? - I'm Tim Fleming.
- I'm his father-in-law.
- Dr.
Holt will be out just as soon as she can with an update.
I need to see Dr.
Holt right now.
I'm afraid she's very busy.
If you just take a seat Tim: You I don't seem to hear what I'm saying, I'm not gonna sit 'til Dr.
Holt comes here and speaks to me.
Yelling at the nurse isn't gonna help Ty.
I'm sorry.
Come here.
I was very clear with you on the phone, - you shouldn't come here.
- I came to see how Ty's doing and then I'm gonna kill him for scaring everybody half to death.
(Machines beep) (Startled waking gasp) (Panicked breaths) You need to lay back down, okay? The doctor gave you a sedative to help you rest.
It should start taking effect pretty soon.
Now don't fight it.
Just breathe in and out.
Nice and slow.
In and out.
(Muffled) In and (Slow exhale) (Knocking) Ty: Hello? Somebody in there?! (Knocking) Hello? (Exhales) Okay, are you sure I can't bring you anything? Okay.
No, I will.
I will.
All right, honey, bye.
(Phone beeps off) - So what did he say? - Doctor is doing tests.
Why can't we go to the hospital? They're not letting anyone in to see Ty right now, honey.
- Still? - Mm-mm.
- Peter: Hello.
- Dad! Lisa: Hi.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- I missed you, kiddo.
- I missed you too.
What are you, what are you doing here? I'm visiting today, what, did I get this wrong or? No, it's on the schedule.
Lou: Oh my God.
I'm sorry it completely slipped my mind.
With everything that's been going on.
I should go anyways.
I have work to do in the barn.
- Peter.
- Hey, Mitch.
Um I-I thought Ty was getting home today.
I figured there might be a dinner or something, is that (Lou exhales) What? It's ridiculous.
So how long they gonna make us wait out here? It hasn't been that long.
I'm sorry, did I ask for your opinion? Oh, give it a rest.
You know, you know, Ty would not be in this mess - if it wasn't for you.
- Is that right? I don't know who the bigger idiot is.
You for dragging him half way around the world into the middle of nowhere or Ty for following you there like a sheep.
He didn't follow me anywhere.
How come you didn't call for help Bob, huh? He had blue cross coverage; I know he did, 'cause I called to double check before he left.
- Why didn't you call a doctor? - Dad! - He said he was fine.
- Well, he wasn't fine, Bob.
- How was I supposed to know! - Well, you should have known! Oh, You weren't there! You don't know what - you're talking about.
- This is on you, Bob! Okay.
Okay, stop, dad! Why do you always do this? - Do what? - You bully everyone around.
You think it's helping, but it just making everything worse.
I mean, why don't you just go home.
Well, you need me.
No, I am nine months pregnant, and my husband is there sick and they won't let me see him.
I am tired and I am scared to death, so I will tell you what I need and right now I need you to leave.
Georgie: Can we please go to the hospital? I can't sit around anymore.
Look, it's driving me crazy too, but Amy said she wants us to wait here, okay? She gets to call the shots right now.
That's how it works.
- I have to do something.
- You wanna do something? Finish hanging up your laundry.
And when you're done that? You can work on your book report.
The best thing right now is to keep ourselves busy.
(Sighs) (Phone beeps) (Beeps phone off) Hey, look, this whole thing, uh, with the investor.
I know it feels like a tough blow, but you've got a sound business plan there.
Everything looks great.
You not gonna have any trouble finding another one.
- I hope so.
- Well, it's true.
I actually have a friend who invests pretty heavily in the hospitality industry.
I don't mind making some introductions if you want.
- Really? - Mm-hmm.
I tucked Katie in, but she is now requesting her daddy.
Oh, well isn't that nice.
- I'm on my way.
- (Lisa chuckles) - Um, Peter.
- Mm.
I would really appreciate it if you would put me in touch with your investor friend.
Yeah, no problem.
I'll make some calls tomorrow.
Are you looking for investors? One of my major backers in the Maggie's franchise - pulled out today.
- I'm really sorry.
Are you sure that you want to involve Peter? - He's just doing me a favor.
- I know.
But favors that involve money get complicated, always.
(Laughs) Lisa, it's not like that.
I know it's not like that.
It starts with a simple call to an investor friend just take it from somebody who's in the horse breeding business with her ex-husband, it's a minefield.
And there is a reason that Peter is your ex.
Please don't go into business with him.
Trust me.
(Half laughs) No, please have a seat.
I, um okay.
I think I know what we're dealing with here.
What is it? Ty has something called relapsing fever.
He got it from a tick bite.
It's easy to treat, but only in the early stages.
If he had taken antibiotics a month ago he'd be fine, but now the disease has weakened his immune system to the point where he's struggling - to fight this pneumonia.
- Okay, so what do we do? We continue the antibiotics, and fluid.
Uh, with any luck we'll see progress in the next few days.
- Few days? - It's okay.
- I do have some good news.
- What's that? Tick born illnesses are transferred from: tick to person not person to person, - so he's not contagious.
- So I can go see him.
Of course.
But I'd prefer to keep it just you for now.
You go on.
Follow me.
(Machine beeps) I've given him a sedative to calm him down and help him breathe more evenly.
It seems to be working.
I'll come back in about an hour or so and then I think that you should go.
I'm not gonna leave him, not until he's better.
I'm not sure that's a great idea.
You must be close to term.
I'm not going to leave him.
I'll give you some privacy.
Hey Ty, it's me.
(Weak) Amy.
I'm right here.
I'm sorry.
What? No.
Don't say that.
You have nothing to be sorry about.
Hey Ty.
(Labored breaths) Hey.
I love you so much.
You're gonna be okay.
(Labored breathing) Let me in.
Let me in Hello? Agh.
(Groans) Hey.
- Amy.
- Hey.
Yeah, I'm right here.
There's a house.
A house? What-what do you mean? I used to live there.
I used to live there.
(Sighs) (Knock on door) - Amy.
- Hey.
Is this a good time? Uh, yeah, come on in.
Lou: How is he? Amy: He's much the same.
Georgie, it's okay.
You can come closer.
(Machine beeps) Hi, Ty.
He drifts in and out.
Doctors gave him something to help him sleep.
Amy, why don't you go home for a little bit.
You could have a shower, lay down, Georgie and I can stay here with Ty.
I'm really glad you guys are here, I'm not going anywhere.
I knew you would say that, so I brought the essentials: change of clothes, tooth brush, trashy gossip magazines and of course sandwiches, in case you get hungry.
(Happy sigh) Thank you.
Georgie, why don't you go down to the cafeteria and get me a coffee and Amy some hot water for her tea? Yeah, sure.
Oh, sweetheart.
Adam? - Hey.
- Hey? He's just downstairs.
I'll show you.
Thanks for coming.
- Who's downstairs? - Ty.
Ty's here? Is he okay? He has pneumonia.
Georgie, I'm sorry.
I didn't know.
Then what are you doing here? Olivia.
She had an accident this morning.
Olivia: He just went crazy.
Budget Buster's never done anything like that before.
We had a good training session.
Everything was normal.
And then right as I was giving him to the stable girl, he just attacked me.
I've never been so scared in my life.
Could something have spooked him? I don't know, but my mom's super upset.
She said she's gonna have to put Buster down.
What? You can't let her do that.
I can't stop her.
Not unless I can prove that it isn't Buster's fault.
Look, Georgie, can you please talk to Amy.
Maybe maybe if she takes a looks at him she can figure out what happened.
I don't know, her husband's really sick right now, I don't think this is a good time.
Just please talk to her, I can't lose Buster.
I feel bad for Olivia, I do, but I'm not leaving Ty.
Not to mention the fact that you're nine months pregnant.
You shouldn't even think about working with horses right now.
I told her it was a bad time.
Why don't you go look at Buster? Me? Yeah.
You've got great instincts.
I don't know.
Olivia and I, we're kinda like oil and water.
Okay, then don't do it for Olivia, do it for Buster.
Ty: Hey.
Hey, hey.
I'm here.
You have some visitors.
Hi, Ty.
Lou: Hey.
Ty, you gotta hurry up and get better, okay? I got all kinds of plans for a big coming home party.
Uh, I think it's too soon for visitors.
Ty needs his rest right now.
Sorry, we were just leaving.
Tim: Hey, how's Ty? W-what did the doctor say? Nothing.
She just told us to leave.
Tim: Well, why-why didn't you ask her what's going on? We didn't have the opportunity.
Tim: What? So you just left Amy there alone? We stayed as long as we could.
I'm calling the hospital.
Oh, you are driving me up the wall.
Go away.
- Do something with yourself.
- Like what? Georgie: I could use a ride to Hillhurst.
Go now.
- Lou: Bye, honey.
- Georgie: Bye.
How'd the visit go? (Sighs) Fine, I guess.
I mean, Ty slept through most of it.
And it's amazing how sick he looked.
But Amy's being strong despite everything.
That's good.
I do have some news that I think might cheer you up a little bit.
- You do? - I do.
It turns out my friend is actually very interested - in the Maggie's franchise.
- Peter, that's amazing! The only catch is, he wants to meet tonight - to discuss it over dinner.
- Tonight? I don't know, Peter, I mean, with Ty in the hospital I know.
I know.
I mean, I can try to reschedule but the thing is, he's not in Calgary that often.
Once every couple of months.
It'll be too late by then.
What do you want to do? Want me to cancel it? (Low hum of chatter) (Hooves clop) Hey, can I help you? Oh, I'm just looking for Budget Buster's stall.
That's Olivia's horse.
Yeah, I'm supposed to take a look at him.
He's right over there.
Do you need someone to tack him up for you.
Uh, no, it's okay.
I can do it myself.
Thank you.
Hey Buster.
Hi, bud.
You remember me, don't you? (Whinnies) (Landing thud) Agh.
(Nervous snorts) Easy.
Whoa-whoa-whoa, bud.
(Nervous snorts) Whoa.
Hey, you're fine.
(Footsteps thud) (Worried sigh) Ty? Ty, it's Tim.
I hope you can hear me.
(Sighs) I just want you to know that I am still mad as hell with you for going away and I think it's because I knew something like this was gonna happen.
I know that I have been hard on you sometimes and I'm sorry.
I think it's it's just my way of protecting Amy.
And I, I think you're aware of that.
And I admire you for taking it from me.
Ty? Ty, you're a good man.
And you are you're gonna be a great father.
But you, you gotta get better son.
You gotta get better.
I love you.
(Nervous snorts) Easy.
Whoa, Whoa.
I know I know.
I know you love to jump, so let's see what you can do.
(Grunting snorts) (Hooves thunder) (Hooves thunder) (Grunting snorts) Good.
Good boy.
(Cell phone chimes) Hey, Georgie.
Um, I can call back if this is a bad time.
No, no, I'm just getting some air.
What's going on? Um, well, I took Budget Buster over some jumps and he seems to be back to his old self.
That's good thing, isn't it? I mean, I guess, but it can't be that simple, can it? I didn't really do anything.
Well, Buster started acting up for a reason.
You need to figure out what happened.
Well, how do I do that? Look around.
Tell me what you see.
Well this place is really fancy.
All the grooms wear uniforms.
They do everything for the owners.
Bathing, feeding, mucking out, grooming, you name it.
The owners just ride their horse and leave.
Yeah, that sounds like Hillhurst.
Well, when you're as rich as Olivia, I guess you pay other people to bond with your horse.
Amy: Maybe that's a good place to start.
What do you mean? Amy: Well, last year, Buster had spinal surgery.
He would have needed a whole lot of hands on help.
If Olivia wasn't doing it then someone at the stable was.
You need to figure out who.
Georgie, I should probably go.
- But good luck.
- Thanks Amy.
(Beeps phone off) By millennial Leasing space in diverse locations Hey.
- Lou, you look beautiful.
- Thanks.
I thought we were just gonna stay and drink this, have a quiet night, but clearly, you have other plans or I'm severely underdressed.
Mitch, I'm such a head case this week.
I'm sorry, I completely forgot.
It's okay.
It's been a busy week, so Peter: All right, Katie's all tucked in.
- You ready to go? Hey.
- Hey.
Um Peter and I are going for dinner - with an investor friend of his.
- Oh, I see.
We're hoping that he could replace the investor I lost.
It was, it was all sort of last minute.
Uh, cross my fingers for you.
For both of you.
- Good luck with the pitch.
- Thanks.
(Bottle thuds lightly) I do a lot of mucking out at my barn, but I couldn't imagine if I had all these stalls to do, I think I'd go crazy.
It's Cheryl, right? I'm Georgie.
I'm Olivia's I'm trying to help her horse.
I asked around and they said you used to look after Buster.
Did you know Olivia's mom wants to put him down? (Half laughs) That woman has more money than brains.
Buster isn't a bad horse.
I didn't think so either, but I can't figure out why he lashed out at Olivia.
Yeah, it's not like him.
Buster, um He was my favorite.
He used to nuzzle me whenever I would walk into the stall.
And he was so gentle.
Like, he didn't have a mean bone in his body.
Why don't you look after him anymore.
What happened? Um I got demoted.
- Now I just muck out.
- Why? Last week, my supervisor pulled me into his office and told me that there is a complaint about my work.
That's all I know.
(Machine beeps) (Incoherent babble) (Sirens wail in the distance) (Incoherent babble) (Big exhale) (Incoherent babble) Hello? Is someone in there? Brad: I'm here, Ty.
Dad? Brad: Welcome home.
(Heart monitor blares) Nurse! I need a nurse! Something's wrong.
What's happening? What His blood pressure is dropping.
Holt: Okay, what's he at? - 76 over 50.
Okay, let's give him a 500cc bolus of normal saline.
Amy, I'm going to do everything I can to help your husband, but you need you to give me the room now, all right? Okay.
Nurse: No change.
Holt: Okay.
Well, let's start him on some dopamine.
10 mic's per kilo, per minute.
(Door snaps open) We got his blood pressure back up, but I don't like his white cell count.
And his fever isn't leveling off.
He's septic, Amy.
His immune system is starting to attack his own tissue and organs.
Why isn't he getting better? He hasn't responded to the antibiotics.
I've started him on a new one and hopefully it'll work.
Hopefully? So what if it doesn't? Oh no.
Is there someone I can call to be here with you? Yeah, please, um - call my grandpa.
- Okay.
I'm gonna go be with my husband.
(Door thuds closed) She used to take care of Buster, but I don't really know Cheryl.
She mentioned something about someone complaining to her supervisor.
Do you know anything about that? Olivia, if I'm gonna help your horse, I need to know the truth.
Her job was to feed and groom Buster.
That's all, but she went way overboard.
She would spent hours with him everyday.
She would talk to him and give him treats.
And when I got to the stable, he would treat me like a total stranger.
You were jealous, so you complained about her.
Buster went from having all the attention he needed to getting none.
No wonder he acted out.
I don't know what to do now.
How can I help him? Meet me at the barn tomorrow.
I'll show you.
Olivia: Okay.
(SUV rumbles up) (Peter sighs) (Laughs) You're disappointed.
I can tell and, you know, you shouldn't be.
He's giving you all the funding you need.
Yeah, but only if you come in as an investor as well.
Yeah, and I told you, Lou, I am happy to put some funds into your business.
Peter, I can't ask you to do that.
Well, you're not asking me.
I'm offering, okay? And if it means the difference between your franchise living or dying, then you should accept.
Why don't we just talk about it tomorrow, okay? It's, it's just been a really long day.
- Have a good night.
- Good night.
(Door opens and shuts) (SUV rumbles away) Oh, good.
What's going on? We were about to take Katie and drop her off at Vanessa's, but now that you're here maybe we can leave her with Peter.
Why? What happened? We need to go to the hospital.
Things aren't good.
Are you okay? - Hey.
- Hey.
Grandpa, I'm so glad you're here.
(Sighs) Listen, why don't you go for a little walk.
Stretch your legs.
Uh, I don't wanna leave him.
It'll be good for you and the baby too.
I'll stay here with Ty for a bit.
What do you say? (Reluctant sigh) Yeah, okay.
(Machine beeps) (Footsteps thud) (Chair thuds) (Relaxed exhale) (Big breath) Jack Well, hello there.
He's in the house.
What's that? My dad.
He's in the house.
Ty! Ty, Amy just stepped out to get some fresh air.
But I'm here talking.
Well I'm thinking mostly.
I know you never thought much of your dad, but I love how you gave him chances.
And when he didn't take them, I know how much that hurt you.
Well, I never had a son until you showed up on my doorstep with your motorbike and your bad attitude.
And you grew up.
And you made something of yourself.
And you made me proud.
You are my son, Ty.
You are my son.
Brad: Well, don't just stand there, son.
Come inside.
(Bike rattles) (Hesitant slow footsteps thud) (Monitor flatline beeps) Somebody! (Cart rolls) I'm sorry, but I'm gonna have to ask you to leave.
He's in cardiac arrest.
Okay, let's shock him at 360 joules.
Nurse: I'm clear.
Are you clear? Nurse 2: Clear.
- We're all clear.
(Jolting grunt) Nurse: No change.
Still v-fib.
- Okay, resume CPR and give him 1mg of epinephrine.
Jack: You gotta bring him back.
You hear me? You bring him back! Nurse 2: Sir, you need to leave.
- Nurse: I'm Clear.
- Nurse 3: Clear.
Holt: We're all clear.
(Jolting grunt) Nurse 3: (Counting) Ty: Dad? Dad? Where are you? Brad: You remember this place.
Don't you? We were happy here.
You, me and mom.
And then you left.
- You abandoned us.
- Brad: Like you abandoned Amy.
Like father like son.
I'm not like you.
Brad: You're exactly like me.
Amy and the baby they're better off without you.
(Flatline beeps) Dr.
Holt: Let's go again.
360 joules.
Nurse: I'm clear.
Holt: We're all clear.
(Jolting grunt) Nurse: No change.
Still v-fib.
(Flatline beeps) Dad, I wish you were still alive so you could meet your grandchild.
So you could see that I'm gonna be a good father and a good husband.
And that I'm the kind of man, you weren't capable of being.
And I never got to tell you this, I never got to say that I forgive you.
I have to go now.
(Ty groans and gasps for air) You're okay.
You're okay.
Take a deep breath.
Try and relax.
Try and relax.
Try and relax.
That's good.
That's good.
(Heavy breathing) All right.
All right, nice work, everyone.
(Door snaps open) Your husband is stable.
He's fighting really hard.
And all we can do now is wait.
You can go on in.
Jack: Doctor.
Thank you.
(Sirens wail in the distance) I think I'm gonna go for a walk.
Hey, is Olivia back in the hospital? I'm not here to see Olivia.
(Ty exhales) Amy.
- Ty.
- Hey.
(Relieved sighs) You know, you had us all pretty worried.
What? What? I can't wait.
For what? To be a father.
(Laughs) Yeah.
(Laughs) You feel a lot cooler.
I think your fever's broken.
(Approaching footsteps) Oh good, you're awake.
You'll want to hear this.
I got back your tests back from the lab, and it looks like the antibiotics are starting to work.
So, if things continue to improve like this, then I don't see why you won't make a full recovery.
Thank you.
Thank you so much for everything.
This is great news.
Now, get some rest.
Both of you.
(Amy chuckles) Ty: Yes.
No regrets What's the word, honey? How's he doing? (Waking groan) He's gonna be okay.
He is.
There's another world between us now - Sweetie.
- That is so good to hear.
I don't see what all the fuss is about, I knew he'd be fine.
- (Jack laughs) - What? I never doubted it for a second.
Olivia, you remember Cheryl, don't you? Yeah.
So I guess Georgie told you? Look, I wasn't trying to replace you.
I know Buster's your baby, but he needed someone to take care of him, - you weren't here.
- I know.
I'm sorry.
If you want a better relationship with Buster, you need to learn to bond the way him and Cheryl did.
- How? - I'll show you.
Why would you help me? Because you're gonna talk to her supervisor and tell him that you lied.
Okay, um, lesson number one he doesn't like carrots.
I saw you trying to feed him one last week.
After the surgery, I started giving him oats and honey as a treat.
Now it's his favorite.
Why don't you give it a try? Good boy.
Hi Buster.
Here you go.
(Laughs) Okay, so your options are I could read you an article out of one of Lou's trashy magazines or we could listen to music or we (tight inhale) Amy? Are you okay? Yeah.
The baby's kicking up a storm.
(Giggles) Do you feel that? Right there.
(Ty and Amy laugh) That's our baby.
That's our baby.
