In The Dark (2019) s02e13 Episode Script

My Pride and Joy

1 We should talk.
Where are they? The drugs? They're in my trunk.
Whoa Max.
Dean, we promised everything to Josiah, and we have to deliver them.
Look, I think we can work together.
No, we're-we're done with you.
Just listen to me.
Okay? Look, I have the drugs, but they don't mean anything to my boss if I can't take someone down with them.
I'm thinking I take Murphy to the arcade, she drops everything off, and then I arrest Josiah.
Why Murphy? I can do it.
I already got Murphy immunity for possession.
All right? She's our safest bet.
It'll never work; Josiah will know we're setting him up.
All right, well, I'll put a tracker in the stash.
I'll say that's how I found it.
And then I won't go and arrest him until an hour or so after Murphy leaves.
He'll never know you were even involved.
Look, I am not offering you guys a choice here.
So we're just wasting time at this point.
I'll do it.
- No, Murphy.
- It's fine.
It's fine.
I'll do it.
Murphy It's fine.
Take Pretzel No.
It's okay.
Look, in the meantime, you guys should get a drink or something.
While the bust goes down.
Use your credit cards.
You seriously want us to just grab a drink right now? You're already under suspicion.
You need a strong alibi.
I'll bring her back as soon as it's all done.
Come on, let's go.
Okay, you guys, I'll be right back.
Don't touch me! Then walk.
Wait, are we on the highway? Why did you just take my phone? Because I don't entirely trust you, Murphy.
- Can you blame me? - I know that we don't have to get on the highway to get from the Linsmore to the arcade.
Where are we going? We're gonna make a little stop first.
I need you to do something for me.
Oh, my God.
Tell me where we are.
Where are we? We're at my house.
Why are we at your house? Because, Murphy, Chloe hates me, and-and you need to fix it.
What? No, we have to go.
We will get there on time.
I just I told Chloe that I would make her dinner, so just come eat with us.
Look, I need you to tell her that we broke up because you weren't sympathetic about Jules's death.
That is what I told her.
That's what she has to believe.
Do we have to do this tonight? Can we just deal with it tomorrow, please? I-I'll talk to her then, but let's just go to the arcade.
I don't believe you.
Dean, if we don't get what's in your trunk to Josiah before midnight, he's going to kill me.
He's going to kill Jess, he's going to kill Felix and he's going to kill Max.
He's gonna kill all of us.
Well, then convince her quickly.
Oh, God.
That was awesome.
Chelsea literally ran away the second she saw my dumb face.
Well, maybe that's for the best.
I mean, she's one less thing we have to worry about.
She's not a thing that I have to worry about, she actually I never said she was a thing.
Shut up.
Darnell's here.
- He knows.
- You don't know that.
Jess, just be cool, okay? Just be cool.
- Hey.
- Oh, my God, hi.
Hey, can we talk? Yeah.
Yeah, sure.
I have got enough food here to feed an army, so I hope you brought your appetites.
This is really weird that you're here.
Yeah, well, um you know.
What's going on? Uh, well, honey, Murphy just She felt bad about how everything ended, and she wanted to try and make things right.
So why don't you go ahead and tell her, Murph? Uh, yeah, that's it.
Could we just eat? Yeah.
You know what, it's almost ready.
Why don't you just take this asparagus to the table, and we'll catch up with you.
You are gonna have to do a little better than that.
I don't really know what I'm supposed to be doing.
It's not that hard.
Just pretend that you like me.
You used to be pretty convincing at it.
Do you seriously want to talk about that right now? I will.
No, what I want is for you to do what I have told you to do.
And then, when she believes you, we can go.
Okay? Okay.
Now, I know that, uh, neither of you likes my cooking very much, but I followed the recipe exactly this time, and I think it looks pretty good.
So let's, uh, head on over.
Murph? Go ahead, hon.
Smells good, doesn't it? I love how proud you are of yourself for making chicken.
I know, right? Well, if worst comes to worst, I have a bag of Sour Patch Kids in my backpack, so we can share them.
Thank God.
I should have known this was just gonna end up with the two of you ganging up on me.
Let's eat.
So I went to her office, where she keeps her go-bag, and everything's there.
- Passports, cash, everything.
- Hmm.
Which means she didn't run away.
I don't know, I think something happened to her.
Nobody even opened up the dry cleaners today.
And she goes there every single morning.
Well, we haven't heard anything.
- We've just been business as usual.
- Mm-hmm.
Where's Murphy? Who knows? Uh Uh, she's at dinner with her parents.
She's coming here after? Yeah.
You guys mind if I wait for her? - Mm-mm.
Not at all.
- Yeah.
Just want to see if maybe she knows anything.
I-I don't think she knows anything that we don't know that she knows.
Right? Oh, my God, please tell me you are kidding.
"Take it Easy"? "Hotel California"? Okay, it's official.
I have failed you as a parent.
Can I have some more mashed potatoes, please? Yeah, here you go.
Anyway, we, uh we got to the cabin, and Dean found out about Jules.
Um, he was obviously shocked, and I wasn't being very sensitive.
Um, and it led to this big fight.
That's the one I told you about.
I wanted Dean to stay, and he wanted to go back, and I was being very selfish.
And I did and said stupid things.
So I am I'm really sorry.
To both of you.
So are you guys, like, getting back together? No.
But we want to be we want to be friends.
Yeah, and-and Murphy can join us for dinner or-or movie nights again, right? Doesn't that sound fun? Yeah.
I missed you a lot, Murphy.
I missed you, too.
Well, uh, whew.
It got late.
It's bedtime, Chlo.
Thanks for dinner.
It was edible.
I love you, Chlo-Bo.
Love you, Daddi-o.
Can we go now? In a few.
What? Have a drink with me.
I'm not gonna put the moves on you, I'm talking about one drink.
No, thanks.
We don't have to be to the arcade for a while yet.
Come on, you can hang with me for one second.
Oh, my God.
Okay, when are you gonna stop being mad at me? Tell me.
You know, given what you guys did to Nia can't you see now how these things can get out of hand? How you will do anything to protect the people you love? I don't know what you're talking about.
You killed Nia.
That's what I'm talking about.
Anyway you have to at least see my side now.
I was fine convincing Chloe that you're that you're a good person or whatever, but I'm not gonna do the same thing for you.
We will never ever be cool.
You're not any different from me.
Why can't you understand that? Stay here.
Dean, I know you're home, man! Your lights are on, your car's outside.
Open up! - One second, I'm-I'm in a robe.
- I don't care, man.
Well, I-I do, just hang on! Do not make a peep.
I'm not an idiot.
Just stay here, and don't do anything.
Who is that? It's Gene I'll get rid of him.
What's up? Wow, you change fast.
Uh, yeah, well Can we go in? No.
Uh, Chloe just went to bed.
S-She's, uh, not feeling well.
Oh, is she okay? Yeah, yeah.
It's just, like, a sinus thing or something.
I'm gonna take her to the doctor tomorrow.
Actually, can this wait? No, actually, it can't.
Um I really need to talk to you.
Okay, I-I can't believe I'm actually doing this, but you're my friend and I'm gonna ask you point-blank.
Ask me what? Did you plant evidence on Darnell James to frame him for the Tyson Parker murder? What? I don't know, man.
That's what he said, and then I saw you throw out all the evidence and I just, it You know, it kind of freaked me out, so I didn't Wait, Jules Becker and Darnell were in a relationship.
And their story was always that someone planted evidence on him, and now I guess, what, he's saying it was me? I was always confused as to how the entire case against Darnell just got thrown out, and now I guess I know.
They must have used my badge number to-to trash the evidence.
Was there any witnesses? I d I don't know.
There's not much I can do as a civilian anyway.
I know.
I miss working with you, man.
Well, um, you know, between-between you and me, I I think, actually, I might have a way back onto the force.
You serious? Tell you what, meet me at Guiding Hope in an hour.
I have it on good authority that Nia moved the cartel shipment back in there.
Murphy was in on it the whole time.
May-may be hard to get a warrant I'll figure it out.
W-What's the plan? What you need? Here's what we're gonna do.
Chloe? Chloe? Chloe? - Chloe? - Yeah? Oh, thank God.
Okay, listen to me, listen to me.
I need you to be very quiet, okay? Your dad forced me to come here tonight.
Everything I said is a lie.
- What? - He made me say all of that.
But now, this is me, okay? This is the real me, and I need you to do something.
It's so important, Chloe, okay? I-I don't understand.
You can't trust your dad.
You can't trust him, and I know that, deep down, you know that that's true.
Even he knows that you don't trust him.
That's why he forced me to come here tonight.
Why did you call him a murderer? And I want the truth.
I said that because he is.
He killed my friend.
I'm so sorry it has nothing to do with Jules.
I'm sorry He's dangerous, Chloe.
And I'll explain everything later, but I just Right now, I just need you to trust me, okay? I need you to go downstairs and I need you to get your dad's keys.
Then I need you to take them to the Linsmore.
It's a bar.
Take the train, take the blue line to Damen.
Okay? And when you get off the train, you're gonna go down the steps and then you're gonna turn left.
And the bar's, like, it's, like, a block away.
It's on the left side.
It's on Danforth Street.
And if you get lost, you just ask anyone where the Linsmore is.
Yeah? - Murphy, I can't.
- Yes, you can, Chloe.
You can do it.
I promise, you can do it.
Jess is already there.
She's there right now.
And you're gonna give her your dad's keys and then you're gonna tell her to get everything out of his car.
She's gonna know what you're talking about.
Okay? The blue line, it's the blue line to Damen.
The Linsmore.
You got it? Say something.
Get out of my room.
No, no, no.
I'm sorry.
- Chloe, please.
- Just get out! No, no.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry All right, I'll see you there.
How do you know all this? Look, I-I'll I'll tell you after everything goes down, okay? All right.
One hour, you said? One hour.
I'll see you then.
Where are you going? Nowhere.
I just went to the bathroom.
Really? I'm sorry, I I was looking for my phone because I-I panicked and I, you know, we're about to set up this giant drug dealer.
I don't know if I can do it.
Pretty sure you'll be okay.
I'm gonna clean up a little bit in the kitchen, and then we're gonna go.
Okay? Come on.
I'm not leaving you here alone again.
Almost done, and then we will go.
Um Can I Can I actually get that drink? Wha I s-said that we're gonna go.
You were begging me to have a drink with you, and now you don't want one? You seriously make zero sense.
I-I don't know.
All right, well, what would you like? Dealer's choice.
Sugar ♪ Ah, honey, honey ♪ Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba ♪ You are my candy girl ♪ And you've got me wanting you ♪ Honey ♪ Go ahead.
Ah, sugar, sugar ♪ Chief, can I talk to you for a sec? I'm just leaving.
What's up? Uh, it's a little sensitive.
I have reason to believe that Dean Riley is, um, uh, working for Nia Bailey.
I think he's holding onto that stash from the cartel.
Now, given that he's, you know, former law enforcement, I just want to make sure that I proceed properly.
Yeah, I don't think so.
There's no way Dean is working for Nia Bailey.
- Well But I-I - Listen to me.
You're out of your depth, Clemens.
Drop it.
Got it? Yeah.
Yeah, I need to speak to Agent Porter at the DEA right away, please.
Thank you.
You guys know when Murphy's gonna be done with this dinner? Well, you know Hank and Joy Or I guess you don't, actually.
But they're talkers, so If there's something you want us to relay Hang on one second.
Might be Sam.
Hello? It is.
Yeah, I can talk.
Wait, hold on; it's too loud.
I'm going outside.
Singin' my song ♪ I love you night and day ♪ Jess.
I have to go tell him.
- Jess, seriously, stop.
- Mm-mm.
Jess, don't.
She's going to tell him.
Singin' my song ♪ I got to go.
She was gonna kill Murphy.
She had a gun to her head, and I I'm so sorry.
Nia found out about this Josiah plan, and that's-that's when it all That's when it all fell apart.
Look, Darnell Jess, can you not talk to me for one second? I'm so sorry.
Just stop saying that.
Who else knows about this, besides Sam? I think just Vincent and Sterling.
I'll take care of it.
No, Darnell.
Darnell, Darnell? You-you don't need to do that because Sterling, Sterling already did that, she I don't think you realize what happens when somebody like Nia goes down.
Sam is not the only one who's gonna be coming after you.
I'll see you around.
Get everybody together.
Yeah, 20 minutes.
Excuse me, is this going to Damen Station? Yeah.
How many stops? Seven.
Thank you.
How did we get here? Uh stupid bag of money.
Murphy didn't help things, of course.
Well, I can't really pin it all on her, so Well, we'd both basically do anything for her, so you kind of can.
She's gonna be okay, right? Yeah.
Wait, Chloe? - Jess? - Yeah.
Oh, my God, I found you! Chloe, what? How did you get? What are you doing here? Uh, the train.
Murphy sent me.
She said my dad can't be trusted.
She said all this stuff, and I don't know.
She said to give you these.
And to go to my dad's car and get everything out.
I don't know what all this is about, but I just I know I can trust her and not my dad.
Chloe, what's your address? 63 Chesterfield Drive.
- Okay, right, Felix? - Yeah, I'm on it.
You need to go get the car, I'll get Max, okay? What's going on? Chloe, you did everything right.
- Okay? All right.
- Okay.
Um, we're gonna get you inside, you're gonna wait for us.
- And we're only gonna be an an hour.
- Okay.
Okay? You did so good.
Wait, I wasn't done.
Well, I told you, we got to get going.
What-what time is it? It's 11:00.
Time is running out Josiah wants his delivery in an hour.
- This car is like - Just-just turn the lights off, Felix! Turn off the car, turn off the car! It's not that hard to figure out! Can I find a parking spot first? Um, we have a few minutes.
What we're about to do I mean This Josiah guy, he's terrifying.
I'm scared, please! - Can I just? I need some time - All right! - to calm down! - Fine.
Finish it.
Then we go.
Thank you.
Okay, you are stalling.
Because I'm scared.
You're not scared of anything.
- Yes, I am.
- Stop it! I don't know what you're doing, but you are doing something.
And I am not going to let you manipulate me again.
I'm honestly not doing anything.
We are leaving now.
Where are my keys? I didn't let you out of my sight! What did you do with them?! Nothing, you didn't let me out of your sight.
Shut up! Wait.
What the hell is that? We got to go, we got to go.
- No, but there's still - It doesn't matter, Jess.
Get in the car, come on, come on, let's go.
Come on! What are you doing? Jess! Jess! I'm sorry, I don't know, I don't know You guys, we didn't get it all.
Does Josiah know exactly how much there was? - I hope not! - You hope not? Oh, my God I think, I think, I think they're coming here! What did you do? How did you call the cops? - I took your phone.
- I didn't.
I didn't, I just, I told Chloe What did you tell Chloe? I just told I just told her - Chloe! Chloe! - She's not home.
Where is she? Where is my daughter? I sent her to the Linsmore because I knew you were setting us up.
Oh, my God.
I-I didn't want to do that! I wasn't planning on that until you told me that-that-that you would never let it go! What does that have to do with anything?! Because you were always gonna be after me! Murphy, I can't get caught! I can't Oh, God, they're here.
They're here I got, I got I got-got to figure out what to do! I got to fig Figure out what to do.
Okay, it's okay, it's okay, we can do this.
We-we can tell them that Nia forced us into it, right? We can get out of this! Dean, it's me! You're under arrest.
Uh, I didn't do anything! We found 50 bricks of heroin in your trunk, Dean.
It's over, man.
50 bricks? So what, your little friends took everything, and left enough for me to go to prison?! Come outside with your hands up! Just go outside.
I can't go outside! Chloe will know everything that I did! Open the door, Dean! She already does.
Dean! Okay, I'm calling SWAT.
Go outside.
There's no way out of this.
Everything that I did I did for her.
All of it.
So that she would have a better life.
And she's never going to speak to me again.
Dean! Killing me is only gonna make things worse! There's a million cops outside! Chloe knows that I love her.
Right? Can you please tell me that she knows that? What? No Dean.
Hey, no! Come on! Chloe needs you.
What She's not gonna have me.
Yes, she will! Come on, you're always g You're always gonna be her dad.
Hey, pl Come on.
Come on.
Put the gun away.
Sterling told me the deal with you and Nia.
That's okay, it's all right.
I'm not gonna arrest you.
Trust me, I want to, but all the evidence against you was obtained by Dean.
It'd never hold up in court, given that he was working for Nia, too.
Dean killed Tyson Parker.
And you were right, he framed Darnell for it, too, um Tyson found out that Dean was working for Nia and Dean shot him.
And he covered up the whole thing.
And I know there isn't anything you can really do, but I just needed to tell someone.
I appreciate it.
Evidence is scarce, but I'll see what homicide can do.
Thank you.
Now I want to ask you for a favor.
I know that cartel shipment, it was, it was bigger than 50 bricks.
You want to tell me where the rest of it is? Oh, I I-I honestly have no idea.
I don't know.
All right.
Well I'm sure it'll turn up somewhere.
So here's the thing.
This is a lot more than I thought it was gonna be.
Trey? Let's give them a little something.
- What? - What? $40,000.
Just a token of my appreciation.
Oh, we're just, you know, That's-that's I mean No, that's unnecessary.
- We're just frankly happy to - But - you know, be alive.
- No thank you.
I insist.
You guys held up your end of the deal.
Put this stuff away.
- Thank you.
- Thank you so much.
You're welcome.
Have a good day.
- You, too.
- Yeah, you, too.
- That's a cute dog.
- Come on, Pretzel.
Chloe? Oh, hey! Hey.
I have to tell you something.
So what do we do now? I have no idea.
I guess tomorrow we go back to work? You're joking.
I'm not.
I think we have an actual, um, grooming client, so Jess, I know it's not technically your job, but No, I'd, I would happily groom it.
Well cheers to going back to our boring, normal lives.
Thank God.
- I'll get your number - Yeah, okay.
from Murphy or something We should, uh Just hit me up anytime.
Okay, cool.
- Okay.
- All right.
Okay, see you.
- See you.
- See you tomorrow.
Okay, well, I'm gonna, I'm gonna go to bed, too.
Okay, good night, Jess.
- Good night.
- Good night.
Um Look I, um I know it's been an insane 24 hours for all of us.
But I just, I got to say that I'm sorry.
I tried to make you chose between me and that other guy at the worst possible time.
I know I was gone.
So, obviously you can do whatever.
So if you want to still see him, that's-that's fine.
Just don't tell me about it.
Okay? Yeah.
Yeah, I don't know um I don't know.
What? I just think you and I might be over.
You're no good for me, I'm no good for you.
We bring out the worst in each other.
I think maybe it's time that we move on.
After everything you just you just want to end things? This is about that other guy.
I'm not coming back this time, Murphy.
Max? Max? Where are you going? I'm moving on.
See you around.
- Hi.
- Hello, Murphy.
Is everything all right? Yeah.
Can you stay over? Um, well, it's 5:00 in the morning, so I think we've missed the "staying over" portion of the evening, but Shut up.
Just lay down with me.
Yeah? Very well.
Darkness is not my strong suit these days.
Well, you'll get used to my apartment.
Who's this? Uh, help me out.
Uh, it's a guy in a photobooth kissing you.
Um That would be my ex.
But do you really want to talk about our exes right now? What's this? Nia Bailey's old money guy got arrested again.
She's got a new one.
Yeah, I'm on it.
Come here.
- Wait, this is Max Parish.
- Hey.
Huh? Your ex-boyfriend is Max Parish.
How do you know Max? So one of your exes is working in narcotics investigating Nia Bailey and the other one was Nia Bailey's old money launderer? Um Yeah.
Um Let's just go to bed, though.
I don't want to talk about them.
Come here.
This is really very strange, Murphy.
No, it's not.
I mean, just 'cause you're all connected to Nia doesn't mean anything.
How do you know I have a connection to Nia? What? Murphy, how'd you know that I am investigating Nia? Because you go after drug dealers.
- She's a high level - Oh, my God.
Case file 34563, Nia Bailey.
Anyway, you get it.
Can we? Let's just try B for, you know, just for kicks.
Okay? It's just that woman we're after, she's expecting a big shipment in, but we'll intercept, and she'll be done.
She was right there.
I just don't know how she got tipped off.
Wait, were you were you the new launderer? No.
Murphy, tell me the truth! Okay, okay.
I don't want to lie to you.
We didn't have a choice! Everyone has a choice! She was going to kill us! She was gonna kill you if you didn't - sleep with me for intel? - No, no! That has nothing to do with it.
All of my feelings for you were real.
- Real! - If that were true, then you wouldn't have lied about it.
It doesn't matter, though! I don't work for her anymore.
Well, she doesn't just let people out! So you're, either you're still working for her and you're lying to me or It's a little bit more complicated than that.
Nia Bailey's dry cleaners didn't open today.
Everyone at work was talking about it.
For the first time in 15 years.
People think she might be dead.
That's really weird.
And you didn't come to my apartment the other night.
- And you had - Josh.
And-and you were all covered in blood and you had dirt on you.
I told you, I fell at the fundraiser.
That doesn't make any sense! Why would you go to work at 6:00 in the morning if you were ill? Because Felix is insane and I - I have to call the police.
- Josh.
Where's my phone? I put my phone over there.
Please stop.
Calm down, please, - calm down.
- My phone was right there.
Just talk to me for a second.
Murphy, where did you put my phone? Hang on, hang on, Josh.
Just calm down, please.
I-I don't want you to be upset.
- I just want to explain - No! I don't want to hear it.
Did you kill Nia Bailey? Because if you did I won't let you get away with it.
Now where is my phone? Murphy, did you move my phone? Murphy! Murphy, turn on the light! Murphy! - Pretzel, come here.
- Murphy, where are you? Where the hell are you? Jess, Jess! Jess, wake up! What? What's going on? - We have to go.
- What? - Josh knows.
- Murphy, don't leave me like this.
Josh knows We have to go.
Call Max and Felix, we have to go.
Murphy! Murphy, come back.
Jess, hurry! Come on.
Hey! Murphy, you can't just leave me here!
