Pretty in Pink

1 Sí, jefe.
How can you just let a patient get taken from here? Sir, we are doing everything we can.
We've called the cops.
They'll be here shortly.
You can talk to them.
I'll wait.
In the waiting room.
Jess? She wasn't there.
What? She wasn't there.
What do you mean she wasn't there? Why would she leave? I don't think she left by choice.
There was, like all kinds of blood and stuff.
Josiah must have her.
- What? - Duck.
Cops! How do you think Josiah knew where she was? I don't know.
Oh, my God.
Where have you been? I've been up all night.
Listen, sweetheart, I got into some trouble at work.
What kind of trouble? I'll explain everything later, but, uh, we need to leave Chicago.
What are you talking about? I got a guy who will fly us somewhere safe.
I'm working on getting us a plane tonight.
Wait, you you have a guy who's going to fly us somewhere safe? What the hell is going on? There are people that want to kill me.
We need to leave town tonight.
Uh why would anyone want to kill you? I told you, I'll explain it all to you when I see you.
Promise me you'll be ready to go.
Lauren! I-I promise, yeah.
I'll text you the information of where and when to meet me when I have it.
I love you so much.
I love you, too.
Try him again.
Murphy, he's not gonna answer.
Okay, maybe maybe try, um, Darnell or Trey and see if they can get a hold of Josiah.
And maybe then we convince him to keep her alive or something.
Felix, why are you silent?! Jess is Murphy, I think whoever Josiah sent to do that they didn't keep her alive.
We need to go back to Canada.
No, I can't.
Josiah is after us.
The cops are after us.
And I I am freaking out.
I just really think we need to go back.
Okay, they're going inside.
Let's go.
I need to lie down.
You can rest while I'm driving.
Like an actual bed.
I haven't slept in days.
We can rest at my sister's.
But I really think we should get to the border before it closes tonight.
Just to warn you, my sister's kind of a bitch.
Her car's here.
I know she's home.
Probably sleeping.
Uh Hi.
Hey, Lesley, look who's back.
Um, I'm gonna go put on some pants.
There's a couch here.
Uh Um Sorry.
I didn't plan this.
But while I was waiting at the train station, I just realized I left my wallet here and It's okay, Max.
I don't care.
What are you guys doing back here? Josiah got to Jess first.
Murph, I'm It's okay.
No, it's not okay.
So, what's going on? I just, u-uh Can I just Is there somewhere I can lay down? Sure.
You can use one of the guest rooms.
I'll walk you there.
Well, I, uh don't know what to say.
But this is obviously a weird situation.
But, um Let's not tell everyone what happened.
Huh? Dude, I think they know.
I'm gonna shower.
Oh, my God.
What you heard in Gene Clemens' post is all true.
I listened to a recording of Dean Riley's confession at the hospital, and he admitted to the murder.
After I handed the phone to Chief Keith Alper, I thought Dean would be arrested, but I found out a few days later he was back on the force.
I didn't know what to do, so I stayed quiet.
Here's what's gonna happen.
You're gonna issue a press release today stepping down.
Our communications team has already drafted it for you.
You're gonna go into early retirement, collect your pension, and never step foot in here again.
Thank you.
Okay, then.
I'm sorry.
We'll have the press release sent over later today.
Hey, honey.
Guess what.
She gave me early retirement.
No, yeah.
I know.
I know.
Yeah, I'll see you at home.
All right, I love you, too.
Are you asleep yet? No.
Scoot over.
Please come back.
Come back.
I'm so sorry.
Can you just lie down with me for a second? Murph, I Please.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Call from Jennifer Walker.
That's Jess.
Call from Jennifer Walker.
That's Jess.
Jess, I'm here.
Jess? Jess? Jess?! She's alive, you guys.
And it was definitely Jess? Yes.
Yes, it was her number, and I know what her breathing sounds like.
- Her breathing? - Yes.
She didn't even talk to you? I'm telling you, it was her.
I'm telling you.
Max was lying right next to me.
He heard her, too.
Did it sound like Jess? Uh, yeah, I guess it could have been.
It was.
Okay, so Jess is alive.
For whatever reason, Josiah hasn't killed her yet.
We need to find him.
Do do we know, like, where he lives, or? I mean, Trey probably does.
I'm gonna see if he can meet us here, okay? Cool.
More houseguests.
Okay, you call Trey.
I'm gonna I'm gonna borrow your phone charger.
My battery's low.
What are you doing? Oh.
Ah, geez.
Ah I figured you still take your ADD meds, and I haven't slept in days, so I need a few.
- Is that okay? - A few? How many did you take? - Uh four.
- You think the potency hasn't gone up since 1999? You basically just did a bucket of coke.
Okay, well, as long as it keeps me awake, all good.
All good? - Yeah.
- Dude, you killed a drug dealer.
And now a different drug dealer is apparently gonna kill your friend.
Thank you for that rad recap, Lesley.
- Can you please leave me be? - Leave you be? Are you even gonna acknowledge that I'm harboring fugitives? Acknowledge that you put my life on the line by even being here in the first place? I can't believe that you're making this about you.
- Can you be an adult for once? - Wow.
That's rich.
I-I don't even have time for this conversation.
- Cool.
- Cool! Hey, you wanted to see me? Ah, Detective Clemens.
Come in.
Uh Sorry for the mess.
I did not expect to be spending my day here.
- Oh.
- Have a seat.
Look, um, I'm really sorry about that tweet.
I-I really didn't expect it to get that much traction.
I I seriously have, like, 12 followers.
Actually, I wanted to discuss something else with you.
What's that? I'm sure you saw Keith resigned.
Which means I need to find a new chief of detectives.
I've been racking my brain trying to figure out who the best person for the job would be, and, uh this might sound crazy, but I think it's you.
Me? Mm.
- Okay, I got it.
- Excuse me? I've been watching the news all morning.
The department is under heat, and you're trying to do damage control by promoting your one Black detective.
- That's not true.
- Come on.
I am insanely underqualified, and you know it.
You're the best man for the job.
That's all there is to it.
Look, you really want me to run things, then I can't give Keith a paid vacation for what he did.
He needs to be behind bars.
He's already been publicly humiliated.
- I think that's enough.
- No, it's not.
And I need you to know that if I accept this position, the first thing I'm going to do is put him on trial.
Do what you like.
It's your department.
If you want it.
I want it.
Hey, you got a minute? Sure, anything for the Internet star Gene Clemens.
Ah, some say Internet star, some say chief of detectives.
- Shut up.
- I know, right? Well, congratulations.
Thank you.
Thank you.
So, um you like working here? Yeah, I love it.
- The uniform, the scenery.
- Yeah.
Going to bed every night knowing - I'm making a difference in the world.
- It's too bad.
Because I want you to come back.
Are you serious? You okay? Yeah, I just, um I never thought I'd hold one of these again.
Oh, actually, uh, that one's mine.
I didn't get you one yet.
I just did that for the theatrics.
No, I'm messing with you.
That's yours.
I'm playing.
Let's go.
Let's go? You're just gonna leave now? Don't you have to quit? My shift is pretty much over.
- Oh.
- I can quit over the phone.
I have a feeling you're gonna like your first assignment.
Yeah? - Hey, Chief.
Good to see you.
- Yeah.
You remember Detective Barnes? You fired me for police misconduct? Yeah, look, I, uh, just got to grab my stuff, all right? Not gonna be needing 'em.
You're under arrest for obstruction of justice and evidence tampering.
- Seriously? - You have the right - to remain silent.
- Seriously? You're gonna arrest me? Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
You have the right to have an attorney.
If you cannot afford an attorney, we will appoint you one.
Why would he be keeping her alive? I don't know, but we have to figure out where his guys took Jess, so tell us where he lives.
Oh, yeah, that's a great idea.
Ambush him at his house.
Trey, what other choices do I have? He's not answering his phone, the arcade burned to the ground.
I-I don't know how else to talk to him.
Hey, you okay? - Yeah.
- I need to talk to him.
Uh, give me a second, guys.
If you hadn't told that kid about our plan, Jess wouldn't even be missing right now.
You know that? So the least you can do is tell us where Josiah lives.
You can't go alone.
I'll come with you, but not if I'm not packing.
Okay, um, my sister has a gun, but - But what? Go get that.
- Uh No because what if you use it? Her It's registered in her name.
If one of Josiah's boys does have Jess, she doesn't have that much time.
Go get the gun.
Yeah? Okay.
- Okay.
- Sorry.
He's high.
Hey, listen, I'm really sorry about what I did.
I guess I just thought that you were playing me, and I needed to look out for myself.
I wasn't.
I wasn't playing you.
I'm gonna make this right.
Here you go.
Um, don't tell Max I gave it to you 'cause I don't want him to tell my sister, okay? All right, let's go.
Come on.
- Max, we're leaving.
- Oh, let's go.
You're not coming.
Why? Why do you think, skippy? Skippy? I'm not skippy.
What do you mean? Skippy? Do I seem skippy? I'm not skippy.
I'm chilly.
I'm chillin'.
- I'm absolutely chilling.
- Yeah.
I'm ju I'm perfectly ch uh, relaxed and fine.
You're a disaster.
Just stay here while we go get Jess, dork.
Hey um is your dad home? My dad's not home, and I'm not allowed to let strangers inside.
We're not strangers.
Mom? Mommy? Annie, come here, honey.
There's no need to panic.
We just need to talk to Josiah.
Yeah, he's not home.
I'll go look for him.
We're the only ones here.
- Going somewhere? - Um You said we're meeting Daddy.
- Where are you meeting him? - I'm not.
- We just want to talk.
- Call him now.
Tell him you're with Murphy Mason.
Come on.
Go, go, go, go.
Come on, Murphy.
Stop! What the hell are you doing? What's that noise? He's not here.
Yeah, I told you he isn't here.
Now get out of my house.
Max, take the kids upstairs and don't let them leave.
Wait, wait.
Please don't.
- No, guys, I think we should just - Just do it, Max.
D-Don't hurt them.
I would never.
It's okay.
It's all right.
It's okay.
It's fine.
We're just gonna go upstairs for a little bit.
It's okay.
Come on.
Listen, my husband's a good man.
I don't know what you think he did, - but - He kidnapped my best friend, - and he's about to kill her.
- That's insane.
He wouldn't do that.
He's short on heroin.
That's how he operates.
Now you just tell us where he is, - and we'll leave you alone.
- I'm sorry, heroin? Yes, heroin.
He sells heroin for a living.
- No.
He - Your husband is the biggest drug dealer in Chicago.
Everything's okay, you guys.
We're just gonna hang out in here for, like, ten minutes.
Okay? While my friends talk to your mom.
It's a cool room.
Um How does this work? Huh? Does it go on your head like this? No.
What about a shield? No? Does it go on the floor like this? Huh? Whoa! Whoa! Oh, come on, I asked you how it worked.
Come on, you got to show me how to do it.
- Like this.
- Okay.
Uh, you don't have to do that! I have a guy that comes.
Well, can't just sit inside, so I can't believe I'm stuck here with you.
You're stuck here because you OD'd on ADD meds.
You are such a moron.
Why are you being so mean to me? I'm obviously in a fragile state here.
You know what? You guys need to find somewhere else to hide out.
- I'm done.
- Cool.
You're unbelievable.
You know, yesterday, it was like, "Yeah, come in.
I'd love to help you out.
" Oh, my God.
What? This is about Max.
- What? No, it isn't.
- Yeah.
You were fine helping me when you thought you could bone Max, but now that he rejected you, you don't really want to help me anymore.
He didn't reject me.
Let me help you out here, Les, okay? Max is in love with Murphy.
Murphy is in love with Max.
And there's nothing either of us can do about it.
"Either of us"? You.
There's nothing you can do about it.
Shut up.
Shut up! No.
That's I Seriously, I just said It doesn't So, you were obviously going to see Josiah.
- Just tell us where he is.
- I told you.
I'm not letting you monsters anywhere near my husband.
See? We're not monsters.
Okay? We literally just need an address before he kills another person.
- My husband's not a murderer.
- I personally witnessed him kill at least ten people.
I'm gonna ask you a question.
Are your kids allowed at the arcade? No, right? And why why Wouldn't kids be allowed at an arcade? I bet he doesn't even want you there, huh? He says he's too busy, doesn't want you to bother coming into the city.
Yeah, well Are you guys struggling financially? Yeah, that's a no.
I don't know, how much do you think a crappy arcade makes? Ignorance is bliss, right? Come on.
- You're not gonna stab us.
- I will.
Oh, she pulled a knife? A small one, too.
Not even the, uh We don't have time for this.
Just tell us where he is.
I need the address.
Just give us the address.
Listen, lady, you heard my friend.
We don't really have the time for all this right now.
Okay? So We're gonna have to speed up this process a little bit.
What? What does that mean? Oh, oh, wait.
What? Did you just beat me? You're so bad at this game.
Okay, well, I don't play it every day like you.
Okay, it's been ten minutes.
Can we go downstairs? I'm hungry.
You know, when I was a kid, I had to spend a lot of time in my room.
- Were you in trouble a lot? - No.
It was just My mom would send me to my room a bunch.
Why? Doesn't matter.
Point is, is that I learned to love it.
Being in my room.
And you guys got all these toys, these video games.
What's so bad? But why did your mom send you to your room a lot? Sometimes she just needed time without me.
And when she did, she would just send me to my room and tell me not to come out till she said so.
Kind of like now, I guess.
What? Nothing.
I just, uh Nothing.
You guys want to play Yahtzee? I haven't played in forever.
For the last time, give us the address.
Oh, my God.
She's impossible.
She's impossible.
Do something else.
- What else you want me to do? - I-I don't know.
- Torture her for information.
- That's what I'm doing.
By duct-taping her to a chair? What do you want me to do, waterboard her? Something! Oops.
- Oh, God.
Are you okay? - Oops.
You all right? - Is she Did I do that? - Listen, I'll come down there.
Don't worry.
It's all right.
She just kind of You ready? Don't worry about it.
Here we go.
One, two, three.
- There.
Ooh! - Sorry.
Sorry about that.
You all right? Step away from her.
What the hell are you doing here? Honey, when did you get a gun? We were looking for Jess.
Just get out of here.
I have no idea where Jess is.
Yes, you do.
I know that you took her from the hospital.
I know Get under the bed.
We are.
We learned in school.
Don't move! Give me your weapon.
You burned millions of dollars' worth of Mateo's heroin.
I'll pay him back.
I promise.
Too late for that.
Where are your children? My children? Why my children? You stole from Mateo.
So he's going to steal everything from you.
Okay? Please, ta-take me instead.
Search the house.
Sammy, Annie! Run! Let's go.
Now's our chance.
Back door.
Back door.
Let's go.
Go! Not my kids.
Just shoot me.
Don't take my kids.
Just shoot me.
Please, I beg you.
That's not what Mateo wants.
Hurry! Hurry! Get in the car right now! Go! Go, go, go! Ellos se escaparon.
¿Pero cómo? Okay, we'll be there.
That was your dad.
He's just grabbing some things, and then he's gonna meet up with us, okay? Where's my mommy? Dad! Thank you.
We saved your kids.
Now tell us where Jess is.
I told you, I have no idea.
Seriously, man.
Just tell us.
Trey, I know you're not inclined to believe anything I have to say right now, but I seriously have no idea.
I assumed she was in the arcade, so if she wasn't, I don't know.
I have to go.
Josiah, hold up.
I'm really sorry.
About your wife.
To the back, guys.
Rad dinosaurs.
I'm sure people will take you more seriously now.
What's up? You'd think, after what you pulled off today, you'd be a little more excited.
Uh, I-I just feel bad, I guess.
For Keith? No.
About what I did to Josh.
I got everything I wanted, and he got nothing.
You know, it just It sucks.
You're the chief now.
Go arrest Murphy Mason, and maybe don't let her escape this time.
She's probably already back in Canada.
You don't know that for sure.
Why on earth would she stay here? I just spent the last three months of my life in a tiny little booth pressing a button that made a gate go up and down.
If Murphy Mason is still in the States, I promise you, I will find her.
Give me a team.
Border control is posting their photos at every station.
- Good.
- I love that we're all working late to try to find a girl who you arrested and then let walk out of the building.
A blind girl.
Let's not forget that fun fact.
Hey, she is smarter than all of us, all right, and if we have any shot at catching Murphy, I'd suggest you stop underestimating her now.
Hey, Chief.
Still not used to hearing that.
I had digital run the names.
You're not gonna believe this.
Turns out that Jessica Damon checked into the Clover Inn in Waukegan this morning.
Hey, that was my friend who's a cop.
He asked me if I've heard from you because the entire CPD is after you guys.
- And what did you say? - Oh.
I said yes, you and all your moron friends are here.
What do you think I said? Thank you.
Oh, and by the way, your friend is a real piece of work.
I don't want to hear about your sex life with Max.
No, not Max.
She isn't dead.
She wasn't kidnapped.
She checked into Clover Inn in Waukegan.
You guys are freaking out over nothing.
Wait, wait, wait.
What?! Yeah, apparently, she checked in this morning.
That can't be true.
What are you doing? Calling the motel.
Clover Inn.
How can I help you? Hi.
Do you have a guest there named Jessica Damon, and if so, can you connect me? Absolutely.
Let's see.
Jessica Damon, room 205.
Oh, I'm so sorry.
That guest has a do not disturb notice.
Ma'am, this is an emergency.
I'm so sorry, I have to adhere to policy.
Anything else I could help So she's just, like, hiding out in a hotel, without even the decency to call anybody? I have to go.
Felix, the cops are on their way there.
- Don't be an idiot.
- Yeah.
Which is exactly why I have to get to her first.
And then, when I do, I'm actually gonna murder her.
Don't go.
I'm serious.
Felix! Seems like a lot of hoopla for one 27-year-old girl.
Seems like you should shut up.
Let's go.
So we did all this, and your girl just checked herself into a hotel.
I don't know.
I don't know.
Just none of this makes sense.
Um, I guess we just wait to hear from Felix.
Hey, can you, um, can you show me how to adjust the heater, please? This giant fire isn't enough for you? No.
I mean, it Can you just show me? He wants to talk to you without me around.
You know what I love? Having your ex-girlfriend around to decode you.
From now on, can we just, like Look, I'm really messed up.
Okay I have all of these issues because my mom Whoa, we're just diving right into the deep end.
Uh, yeah.
I guess we are.
Anyway, I-I tend to go after these, uh these women that cause chaos, like she did.
Like, I was sitting in this room with these innocent kids who were scared out of their minds because of Murphy.
Just made me feel like how I felt around my mom, I guess.
I don't feel that way around you.
Thanks? I'm just trying to say that I like you.
Well, you could have just said that without the depressing backstory.
Oh, God.
Can I help you? Uh, I'm looking for Jessica Damon.
Uh, I'm Jessica Damon.
No, you're not.
This way, room 205.
Right here.
Jessica Damon, come out with your hands up! Who the hell are you? Jessica Damon.
Oh, God.
Just bring her in.
Okay, let's try this one more time.
Just tell me where you got this passport.
This one, right here.
Going once.
Going twice.
Nothing? You sure? Fine.
I promise I'm better than that.
Well, she's clearly terrified.
How the hell did she get Jess's information? Wait, so Cindy is just recycling our identities? We did not sign up for that.
I can't think of any other explanation.
I mean, the police arrested this girl, thinking it was Jess; They wouldn't have done that if it was just the same name.
Wait, what if what happened to that girl at the hotel is happening to Jess? Like, to our Jess.
What? That girl got Jess's identity from Cindy.
Jess got an identity from Cindy, Jennifer Walker.
We know Josiah didn't take her, Sam is in prison.
And Darnell called off all-all of Nia's people.
Maybe someone's mistaking Jess for Jennifer Walker.
She was obviously in some sort of trouble if she needed a new identity.
Think about it.
Jess checked into the hospital as Jennifer Walker.
No, please don't.
I take it back.
I won't say anything.
I won't And that's where she was taken from.
Please stop.
You guys, I don't think we're looking for someone who wants Jess.
I think we might be looking for someone who wants Jennifer Walker.
