Holy Family (2022) s02e06 Episode Script

Hair Down

- [indistinct chatter in background]
- [bell tolling faintly]
[somber music playing]
[Aitana] It's been so long
since I last wrote to you
so I have no right
to ask you for anything.
Besides, if I wanted to have that right,
I should have behaved better.
A lot better.
[somber music continues]
But if I could ask you for anything,
the only thing I'd want
is for you to bring my mom back.
The real one.
But I know that's impossible.
It's too late to fix it now.
- [Abel] Where is it?
- [Gloria] I don't know
- [gun cocks]
- [Aitana] This can only end one way.
Someone saw a van just like yours
the night Marcos died.
[Abel] What are you doing, Mariana?
It was you.
Drop the gun.
The same van.
[tense music playing]
That's why you took the stickers off
and didn't want us to use it, right?
It was you.
Just drop the gun.
I drove that van to his parents' house.
Damn it, they could have seen me!
[tense music building]
Just fucking say you did it!
- How many vans like
- Shut up! Stop defending her.
Will you stop threatening her? Huh?
Huh? Come on!
What the fuck do you need
to understand that Mom is not a murderer?
"Mariana." That's what
you want me to call you, right?
Say it, Mom.
Say it.
You have to trust us.
We're all you have left.
We love you, sweetie.
We love you.
I don't give a fuck
about this family anymore.
[gun clatters]
[Gloria] Sweetie.
Sweetie. Mariana, don't leave.
Not like this. We're in danger.
I'm in danger
every time I decide to stay with you.
You know what?
I don't care if you're Julia or Gloria.
To me, you're both dead.
You're not my mother.
You don't get to choose that!
No one can choose!
I've done everything I could
for my children!
I wish that one day you could do
the same thing for your child.
Your brother told me.
And I can help you, sweetie.
I would never even fathom
raising my child around you.
[mysterious music playing]
[Pedro] Gloria!
I wasn't sure about coming, but
I couldn't help it.
I really need your help.
Someone's stalking me.
No. You've caught me at a bad time.
I know, Gloria, about Caterina and Germán.
I know all of it.
I don't have time.
You don't need to pretend with me
Julia Santos.
[mysterious music playing]
Who told you about me?
That doesn't matter now.
You know that Ana is with us now.
And that she's not Germán's
or Caterina's daughter.
Well, now her mother
wants to take her away.
And what does that have to do with me?
Her mother's a junkie!
Come on, she can't take care of her.
Please, Gloria.
I know you can help me.
Leave me alone.
Gloria, I don't want
to cause you more trouble.
there's only one way I can truly help
telling you not to look for me again.
Because if you do, I'll have to act on it.
Don't make me do something stupid, okay?
Are you threatening me now?
I wouldn't want to,
but you could maybe talk to her.
Convince her.
You're making a mistake, Pedro.
You're making a huge mistake.
Everything you've done
was for your children, right?
You can't even begin to imagine
what I'm capable of.
[dark music playing]
[clears throat]
Hey! Claudia.
Don't hide. [laughing]
Hi. How are you?
[Claudia whimpers] No, no, no
- [Caterina] No, no, what?
- No, you're fucking dead.
- No.
- [Caterina] No, no, no. No.
I am more alive than ever, hmm?
Aren't you glad to see me? Hmm?
You should be,
because I've come to tell you
[sighs] I've come to tell you
that I know where you can find
our little cauliflower.
I already know where she is,
but he won't let me take her.
[Caterina] Who? Pedro?
Yeah, the curly-haired guy.
Why won't he let you take her?
Because you're high all day, every day?
I don't know, but she is my daughter.
I don't know.
You took her away, so you bring her back.
I'm gonna fix it.
I'm gonna fix it, okay? Don't worry.
I'm gonna fix it.
I swear.
It's not right.
Relax, girl.
I'm not going to do anything to you.
- And Mariana?
- [sighs] She's not coming back.
- This time she's really not coming back.
- Holy shit.
And you, you should leave too.
I'm not going anywhere, damn it!
I'm not leaving you alone, Mom!
Not forever, that's not what I mean.
Just until everything settles down, okay?
I wanted to keep you safe,
but that's not gonna happen here with me.
- So you're giving up?
- I'm not giving up, no.
[shouting] I am not giving up!
But it's better if you leave now
than doing it like your sister did,
damn it,
or the way Santi did!
- Fuck! I wouldn't be able to stand it
- No. No, that's not gonna happen, Mom.
I don't know
what happened to you and Santi
but he really loved you.
I took this photo of him that day.
[somber music playing]
It hurts knowing
what you're capable of doing for love.
Maybe this wouldn't have happened
if you didn't love me as much as you do.
Maybe I shouldn't
have called you that night.
I keep wondering,
"What am I capable of doing for you?"
Just thinking about it scares me.
It scares me so much.
Because I know
that you're running through my veins.
Stop. Stop recording.
- What's the matter, Santi?
- Nothing.
Have you ever been afraid of me?
Listen to me.
I'll find her.
And we'll leave together as a family,
which is what we are.
[Chino] She didn't fuckin'
buy any of that shit.
[Natalia] She did. I know her.
[Chino] She's not lettin' her guard down.
[Natalia] Well, but she
won't be running away now at least.
I'll still keep an eye on her.
Because sooner or later,
they'll take your son out of that house.
- And then, boom, end of story.
- No!
I'm not putting Nico in danger.
- The plan has changed.
- [sighs]
After today, Julia will give us more time.
And Edu will be more distracted.
[Chino] But
what does Edu have to do with all this?
- [Natalia] He'll be our bargaining chip.
- How?
[Natalia] I'll tell you, let me pay first.
We're putting an end to all this.
[Chino sighs]
Gas for number two.
- [attendant] Mm-hm.
- Please.
[wistful music playing]
[attendant] Anything else?
And this too.
[pensive piano music playing]
[Aitana] Smile. Cheese.
[all] Cheese!
- [Abel whispers] Come on, tell her.
- What is the secret?
[Santi] Uh, it's nothing.
Come here. Sit down for a sec.
What's up?
[Santi] Listen, you have to promise
you won't tell Mom, okay?
- Are you messing with me again, guys?
- No. No, no, really.
What's up?
All right, it's not definite, okay? But
But Natalia and I are moving to Argentina.
To Argentina? But why?
Um, because Natalia wants to go back.
- It could be just temporary.
- How long? A month?
- Two?
- I don't know.
Santi, you can't leave.
- Say something!
- Mariana, keep your voice down.
- I don't want to! I don't want to!
- Hey! Hey, shh! Take it easy.
Mom can't find out, okay?
[line ringing]
- [Pedro] Hello?
- Pedro.
- Gloria.
- I'll do it.
But you're also
going to have to do something for me.
- But, I
- Take it or leave it.
Do what?
There's no time. Yes or no?
[sighs] Fine.
Okay, uh, let me know
when you want to meet
I also have the right to rebuild my life.
I'm not doing anything wrong.
Don't start again, please.
I didn't even open my mouth.
Yeah, but you are thinking about it.
No, Blanca, I didn't think anything of it.
You've decided to go back to work.
Good for you.
Where did you sleep
the night your son died?
And don't tell me
you slept at your brother's.
I know you didn't.
I slept in a hotel.
- Happy?
- No.
Because I don't get it.
Why would you lie to me about it?
[somber music playing]
Out of the blue,
you said you wanted a divorce, Blanca.
What did you want me to say?
That I didn't want my fucking brother
to see me at my lowest moment?
[Blanca] For example.
Yeah, but I wouldn't
give you that pleasure, right?
Did you see Lorenzo leave the house?
What the hell are you asking me right now?
When you're angry, you usually
spend hours sitting in your car.
You've been doing it for years.
- Why should it have been any different?
- [laughs dryly]
[somber music continues]
[knock on door]
What are you doing here?
Where'd you get this address?
At the hospital.
What's the matter? You going home?
[scoffs] Going home?
Were you gonna leave without telling me?
- [door closes]
- "Without telling you."
Have you ever told me
anything that is true?
That's why I'm here,
to tell you the truth.
No, it's too late for that now.
I don't know who the fuck you are.
- What's going on? What did he tell you?
- [sighs]
What's the matter? Is Abel here?
- God damn it, is Abel here?
- What are you saying?
[yells] Abel!
What? Are you gonna blame Abel now?
Were you gonna run away together?
Manu, that kid is smarter than you think.
Tell me what he said,
I'll tell you the truth.
What truth, Diego? What truth?
Or maybe I should call you "Germán"?
Leave or I'll call the police.
[softly] No.
Not like this.
Manu, I won't let
a 15-year-old relationship end like
- It's over. I know everything.
- Especially over a kid.
You're in love with him and I know it.
I know you risked your life for him.
- [bittersweet music playing]
- That leaves me in a shitty place.
Tell me I'm wrong and I'll listen to you.
You're not wrong, though.
I fell in love with him. I
I don't know. It's been
a long time since I felt this happy, Manu.
But what we have is different.
You and I are family, damn it.
We're brothers.
I don't want to be your brother.
And you know what?
If it had just been a good fuck,
I'd understand.
Didn't you go through the same thing?
When I was with him,
I only thought about you.
[Germán sighs]
[bittersweet music continues]
[Manu] Leave.
[door opens and closes]
[Gloria] There.
The plate number and the address.
Once you get rid of the van, you call me.
- [Gloria] It's okay, sweetie.
- And the keys?
I don't have them.
And I can't get them either, so
Uh, and how should I do it?
Figure something out.
This is the location.
Her name's Claudia.
Gloria, you know
Ana's better off with us, right?
Yes, I know.
I just want her to let the girl
grow up in peace.
Don't say thanks for this.
We're not buddies.
This is not a favor.
This is a pact.
And pacts are upheld.
[softly] Right.
[Chino] I'm ready, so whenever you want.
Do you think it will work?
[Chino] We'll never know unless we try.
- [Natalia sighs]
- [tense music playing]
I just want this to be over. That's all.
Go on. I'll wait for you here.
You can trust me.
- [partygoers clamoring]
- [Santi] Antonio, another round on me!
[Antonio] Guys, here's to Nico!
- Ah! Hey, let's dance. Let's dance.
- What?
[laughing] No, no, no, my love.
You've already partied so hard. That's it.
That's it, my love.
Let's go home. Come on. [chuckles]
[music playing faintly on radio]
Hey, my mom's joining us for lunch
and for crib shopping tomorrow, okay?
I thought for once we could do something
just the two of us, you know?
Holy shit.
[laughs] You seem to like her
when you need her.
- Then you hate hanging out with her.
- I didn't say that.
I'm sick of you treating her like this,
- What are you talking about?
- You're so goddamn ungrateful!
- Don't yell at me!
- [thud]
[tires screech]
[Natalia exclaims]
- What was that?
- Don't know.
I don't know.
Let's go check.
- [gasps]
- [Santi] Fuck.
- [exhales]
- Did I Did I kill him?
- No, he's alive.
- Did I kill him?
No, no, no, he's alive.
He's fine. He's fine.
We need to call someone.
We need to call the police.
No, no, no! Natalia, not the
No, not the cops.
Cops would search him from top to bottom,
you understand?
- [dark music playing]
- Okay. Hey, I was the one driving.
- Just get out of here!
- No.
- Leave! Please just go!
- No.
[dark music continues]
[gurgling continues]
[dark music continues]
[line ringing]
- [Gloria] Hello?
- Hey, Mom.
So how do I look?
[Gloria] Let me get a better look.
It looks amazing on you.
You look gorgeous.
I have to rebuild my life, Gloria.
It's been so many years.
A little soon perhaps
but you're very brave.
Since you're leaving, uh, could I borrow
your car for a couple of days?
The van's about to break down, you know?
Sure! Yeah, no problem.
- I'm not going to use it. [laughs]
- Plus, I'm a better driver than you.
[laughs] Oh, you're so silly.
- Where are you going?
- Uh, Rome!
The transfer picks me up in an hour
to go to the airport.
Ah, Rome
- [in Italian] Rome is always beautiful.
- Hmm!
Toast to my health.
[in English] Sure!
I'll give it back.
[sinister music playing]
[door opens]
It's not fully insured, okay?
[sinister music continues]
[indistinct chatter]
- Hello.
- [man] What do you want?
- Do you know a Claudia?
- I don't know.
Maybe over there.
Okay, thanks.
[siren wailing in distance]
Where can I buy stuff?
[laughs] It's my first time.
I have no idea.
Ask Jonás, the one with the hat.
Tell him you're my friend
and he'll give you a friendly price.
Okay. What's your name?
[indistinct chatter in background]
Oh my God.
Friendly price, huh? What a bargain.
Well, I'm doing one right now.
I just can't wait.
By the way
Thanks for your help again. [laughs]
- Want a sniff?
- No, no, I'm, uh
- I'm trying to quit.
- Yeah. Yeah, so am I.
Yet I'm here, you know?
Tomorrow will be another day.
No, it's just that, um
I have a daughter
and I'm doing it for her.
[gentle music playing]
[Claudia] Do you have kids?
Well, children change everything, right?
Yeah, but I just
I'm not used to getting high on my own.
Come on.
Just today. I mean, it's on me. Enjoy.
[Claudia] Well, no
Hurry, do it. Now, do it. Nobody'll see.
- [Claudia] Okay, just one.
- [laughing]
Holy shit, that's a mountain,
that's not a line.
- [ominous music playing]
- Okay, I'll do it.
[dissonant note plays]
- [Claudia exclaims]
- The other one.
Come on. I'll do the last one.
- [Claudia grunts] Another one?
- Mm-hm.
[dissonant note plays]
- [coughing]
- [sinister music playing]
[coughing continues]
[sinister music continues]
[Caterina] Fuck, Claudia
What did she say to you?
[groaning] Shit.
What did she say?
Claudia! Hey!
God damn it, Claudia. Hey. Hey.
[music stops]
[car alarm chirping in distance]
[dark music playing]
[lock rattling]
[dark music continues]
[engine turning]
[engine turning]
[engine starting]
[engine revving]
[line ringing]
- [Felipe] Hello?
- It's me.
[Felipe] Aitana, I'm sorry.
I really am. I'd like to talk
- Tell me I can trust you, Felipe.
- [door opens]
- [Felipe] Sure. Let me know
- [man] Hey! You! What are you doing?
Hey! Wait!
Everything's the same.
I'm older, but, uh, the rest is the same.
How's Teresa?
She's moved to Miami with Galván.
- He's the captain, right?
- Mm-hm.
I can't believe it.
- I've always liked him, you know?
- Sure, babe. Who didn't, though?
Girls, they're almost done.
So in five minutes, we take off.
[somber music playing]
- [Blanca] Do you have
- Yeah?
- [Blanca] Do you have any water?
- I, um
Not here, but there's water inside.
- [gasping]
- Blanca, are you okay?
[Blanca] No, I can't
- I can't board the plane.
- Yes, you can.
- Come on, breathe. It's okay.
- [gasping]
It's okay.
I can't board the plane!
[gasping] I
I can't stop thinking about him.
[breathing raggedly]
- How is she?
- She's resting now.
She had a panic attack,
a pretty strong one.
- Mmm.
- Which is normal.
Especially in times of grief.
Yeah, well, I told her it
it was too soon,
but you know her, she's stubborn.
What she needs now is rest, okay?
You also need to rest.
Yeah, we've had some terrible days.
I can imagine. One day at a time.
Do you know
if she's still taking paroxetine?
A tranquilizer.
Right, well, uh
I don't know, José Luis. I don't
I don't don't have a clue.
She's been taking it for a year.
It's the only one that works for her.
Make sure that she never forgets.
I mean, she just can't stop taking them
out of the blue, especially now.
Call me if you need anything.
Sure thing, José Luis. I will.
- All right, Ramón.
- Thanks.
There, here you go.
[dark music playing]
[doorbell ringing repeatedly]
- Who are you?
- [Abel] Are you Felipe?
Have you seen Aitana recently?
- I'm Abel, a friend of hers.
- No.
- Why are you looking for her here?
- No reason.
If you see her,
tell her I'm going on a trip.
I want to talk to her, okay?
- Yeah, sure.
- [apprehensive music playing]
He's my brother.
Why didn't you ever tell me
that you had a brother?
We're not going through
our best moment, actually.
- [sighs]
- [pensive music playing]
I don't know if I want to talk to him.
[phone ringing]
- [Abel] Mom?
- Did you find her?
No trace of her.
There's no time.
I finally have her passport,
but now we don't have her.
What do we do?
We've been looking everywhere for her.
[sighs] Maybe she went back home.
- Go home.
- Okay. I'll see you there.
Thank you for not leaving me, son.
[pensive music continues]
Felipe, I had nowhere to go.
I thought I'd never see you again.
I can't go back to my family.
I'm sick of not being able
to do what I want.
Well, that's all that matters.
That you can do what you want.
I see it now.
You are the most important thing.
Both of you.
- I've been looking for you all day.
- Oh.
So you think you can just show up
whenever you want?
Well, this is what you wanted,
to run away together. Here I am.
And Manu?
After everything you told him,
what do you think?
Why'd you tell him all that bullshit?
- I don't know, I guess
- Same reason why I crashed my car.
Because of this. This can't be explained.
Because we think we can control things
and we can't.
It's impossible.
What's the matter?
- [laughing]
- You've got a lot of guts, dude.
- ["Goodbye" by Apparat playing]
- I love you.
I remind you of my brother.
- I see it in your eyes.
