In The Dark (2019) s04e01 Episode Script

Bail's in Your Court

Previously on In the Dark Did you kill Nia Bailey? I won't let you get away with it.
It's a button from Murphy's jacket.
They're gonna find Murphy's DNA and it's only a matter of time before they find the bodies.
It's over.
Murphy, you're under arrest.
You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
I promise I'm gonna help get you out of this.
Good luck.
You ready, babe? Ready.
No, no.
No! No! Please I love you.
No! No! You don't worry, okay? I am going to get you out of there.
Felix, y-you're good at so many things.
Um but I think I'd prefer, uh, a lawyer who actually well, passed the bar, you know? - For this.
- Okay.
First of all, the room I took it in was incredibly drafty, so it was impossible to concentrate.
And I'm talking about my sister.
For some reason, she offered to take on your case.
- Really? - Yeah.
She thinks she can actually win this.
She says without a murder weapon, it'll be hard to convict.
Uh That's Tell-tell her, "Thank you.
" I will.
Are you-are you sure you're okay in there? I know Sam was Sam's not here.
They, uh sent me straight to prison 'cause I-I guess, apparently, the jail wasn't accessible.
Oh, thank God.
How's your bed? Is it comfortable? Who knows? I haven't even been to my cell yet.
They-they took me straight here.
That's time.
Okay, your bail hearing is only in two days, okay? I will get the money and I will be there.
Promise? I promise.
I love you, Felix.
I love you, Murph.
I'll be okay.
Come on, Mason, let's go.
- Bye.
- Okay.
This one's yours.
Hi, Murphy.
They told me that you I paid off a guard to transfer me.
See, when you killed Nia, I swore I'd do the same to you.
Please, please, I'm begging you.
- I'm begging.
- Relax.
There are cameras trained on every cell.
I can't touch you in here.
But you're gonna have to leave eventually.
- No, please.
- And when you do I'm-I'm sor-sorry.
you're done.
This is gonna be fun.
Please, please, please Oh, God! What do you mean you can't pay her bail? You're the only one with money around here.
A defendant's lawyer can't pay it.
How much money you got? You know I have none.
Perfect! I promised her.
Hey, I don't like that she's in there, either, but there's nothing we can do.
And you said she's fine, she's safe.
No, he's acting all tough, but she she's terrified.
I got to do something.
I have 30 grand in cash here.
Dad said to keep cash around in case you need it.
Yeah, I kept, like, 40 bucks.
Anyway, I'm sure I can argue her bail down under 300 grand, and you only need to pay ten percent, so take it.
Her parents weren't home.
What? Hey, buddy.
I know, buddy.
- Hi.
- I know.
Looking forward to seeing you all in court.
I'm gonna make sure Murphy rots in prison for the rest of her life.
Have a good one.
You have Ms.
Mason's DNA at the crime scene, along with the victim's, and then she fled the country.
Innocent people don't do that.
Yep, that's because she's very, very guilty.
And I don't think we'd have any trouble convincing a jury.
I'd say barring some miracle, - this case is pretty airtight.
- What kind of miracle? I don't know, she's got Lesley Bell.
She's vicious.
But like I said, a competent jury will be able to see through whatever bogus defense she comes up with.
What defense could she possibly come up with? Josh.
Did you hear her? Just be happy for two seconds.
Thank you, Jamie.
What can I do for you, man? Sorry to bother you.
This was just called in.
I thought you might want to get down there ASAP, since the press will be all over this one.
What is it? Sorority girl found dead this morning at North Chicago U.
Okay, let's get it.
Wait, wait, wait what about Murphy? - What about Murphy? - Well, I was just thinking what if we go after Lesley? Lesley Bell? She's representing her.
She won't be able to from jail.
We know she was harboring fugitives.
What's your endgame? We get rid of Lesley and hopefully Murphy gets stuck with some some overworked public defender.
Okay, okay, fine.
Uh, Navarro, why don't you stay here and help Josh with that, all right? Whoa, whoa, whoa, didn't he start, like yesterday? Last week, actually.
Last week.
Good luck.
Cool, uh let's just call the judge.
Murphy Mason? Yes.
I'm Joe.
I run this cell block.
I know you're new here, but meals are mandatory.
Get to the cafeteria.
What? No, no, I-I I I don't I can just gonna stay in my cell.
I-I don't need to go.
I'm not hu I'm I don't need to eat.
It's non-negotiable.
Get up.
Lunch started five minutes ago.
Can Oh, my God C-Can you Will you walk me there? Because I don't know how to get there.
I'm I don't know where it is, obviously.
Yeah, sure.
Thank you.
Hey, break it up! Hey! Guard? Guard? Guard, hello? What do you want? I'm busy.
I know, and I'm so sorry, I-I just I-I couldn't get to your office.
My stupid cane broke in half.
- Ah.
- Yeah.
And this thing really is my eyes.
I mean, I have no way of getting anywhere without it.
- So - Well, um I can put in an order - to get a new one, but it won't - Oh, no.
No, I mean, my-my bail hearing is tomorrow, so do you think I can just hang in my, hang out in my cell until then? I don't, I honestly don't need to eat anyway.
The-the food is disgusting.
No, Ms.
Like I said, - inmates are required at every meal.
- Yes.
And I, I know that, I understand.
I just, uh I literally have no way of getting there.
- So - I'll tell you what.
I'll assign you someone.
How's that? Assign me someone? Yeah.
Like a human cane.
You know, someone to help get you from point A to point B? That's the best I got.
Um Hey I'm Savannah.
My human cane, I know.
Um I'm just gonna I'm fine! Oh.
Uh I can stand up on my own.
Um, I'm so sorry.
I'll learn, don't worry, um but how do I? I'm good just walk, and I'll follow you.
Um Okay, then.
What happened here? I thought sororities weren't allowed to have parties, only frats.
Really? That's pretty sexist.
Ah, damn.
What's this? What? You ever seen this stamp before? Nah, you? Never.
You didn't eat your lunch.
I'm not hungry.
I can hear your stomach.
I'm fine.
Let me at her! - Help me! - What? Help me! It's okay.
It's okay.
Get off! Never touch my girls again.
You understand me? Or what? Stop, stop! Break it up! Come on.
Go, go, go, go! What the hell just happened? It's okay.
It's over.
It's over.
I heard I heard, I heard Samantha Rogers.
She's going after Paula's crew.
That's enough, Sam.
Step out of line again, and you're going in the SHU.
Let's go.
Who's Paula? She's the one running things in here right now.
And she and Sam have been going at it ever since Sam got here.
Why? Well, drugs.
I guess they're one and the same in here.
Paula's got both.
Come on, come on.
Forensics came back on the pill.
It's a mix of methamphetamine and hydrocodone.
Oh, great, so basically a crapload of heroin and cocaine all mixed into one teeny, tiny pill.
Narcotics is looking into it now.
And from what I hear, no one has seen this stamp before.
Oh, well, aren't you the bearer of great news today.
Hey, I have to imagine that given this pill's an opiate, someone's probably trying to take over Nia's territory.
It's up for grabs.
Which is why I have to cut it off at the source.
I won't let another Nia take over this city.
Then let's do it.
There you are.
Look, we served Lesley Bell.
Should have her door cam footage by the end of the day.
We know Murphy was staying there, so Lesley's done.
All right, um I'll find you in a bit, but first I got to go to the lab.
Wait, wait, wait.
We got to get going to Murphy's bail hearing.
I want to talk - to the prosecutor beforehand.
- Right, right, right, right.
- Okay, let's go, let's go, let's go.
- Whoa, I'm sorry! You're gonna take two hours to go to a bail hearing so you guys can, what, high-five each other? Gene you just said that you want to cut this off at the source.
She's right, man.
I'm sorry, but I got to focus on this.
Let me know what happens after, okay? Nice.
So are you all set with the bail hearing today? Are you kidding me, Felix? I don't care about the bail hearing.
My life is about to explode.
So you got subpoenaed.
What's the big deal? Felix, I will be disbarred if I'm convicted.
I could go to prison.
I have to hand over my door cam footage by the end of the day.
You don't think they're gonna see Murphy there? I can't.
I don't know what else to do.
I have to get out of this.
Sorry, Felix.
Sorry for what? Gran? Hi! It's Lesley.
No! Are you high?! I know, too long! You know, it's so funny you ask, because I'm actually with him right now.
- Oh, I hate you.
- Lunch? Yeah, we can be there in about half an hour.
Duck will be just fine.
See you soon.
Okay, bye.
What the hell are you thinking?! Felix, I'm sorry.
But you know she's the only person who can get us out of this.
- One hour.
- Yes! And then we haul ass to the court.
We can't be late.
Poor woman, working for the literal spawn of Satan.
- I can't believe we're doing this.
- We don't have a choice.
We are in and out, okay? Whatever you do, don't let her drag you into a game of cribbage or whatever.
Oh! There they are.
My grandbabies.
Oh! Oh.
You look so grown-up.
Well, we're 31 and 34, so we are literally grown-ups.
No, no, no, you're six and three, and running naked through my azaleas.
And who is this handsome young man? This is um I'm her boyfriend.
Oh, stop.
Oh, mm.
Mm Well shall we to the dining room? Yeah, Gran, um, I know Les said we could do lunch, but actually we're in kind of a hurry.
And we just have to ask you one thing Nonsense.
I'm putting some meat on those bones.
You two look like a pair of refugees.
Dude, it's fine.
We'll just eat real fast and then leave.
It's not a grab-and-go situation, Max.
Okay, here we go.
And your fork is right here.
Michaels, your parole hearing got moved up.
They need you in there in ten minutes.
Ten minutes? Um, okay, uh Let them know I'm on my way.
Okay, um I got to run, but it looks like you're all set up here.
Are they gonna assign me someone new? Well, it won't take more than an hour.
You're good you know your way back.
Not hungry? Looks like you're gonna have to walk back to your cell alone.
People always ask me what the hardest part about being blind is.
I never know what to say, but now I do.
That night at the Linsmore? I didn't get to see Nia's face as she died.
- What? - I could hear everything.
You know? I could hear her gasping and-and-and knowing it was it was over, but I'm sure there was nothing like like seeing her face.
Just the shock that that I won? And I did, I-I I won.
It's just crazy how fast it happens.
You know, like with death.
One minute she was there and the next she Hey! Hey! That's enough! What'd I say?! That's a night in the SHU for you, Rogers.
I win again.
I'll be out tomorrow! Aw.
I'll be out this afternoon.
Hmm, well that was a delicious and very filling lunch.
Compliments to the chef.
Les, I think maybe it's time we talked to Gran about our little, um, situation? Actually, Gran, we are in a bit of a situation.
See, we know this girl.
She's blind and was in a bad way, so I offered her a place to stay for a couple of nights.
- Mm-hmm.
- I was just trying to do a good deed for someone in need.
You always taught us to help those less fortunate.
But the problem is, this girl ended up getting into some trouble with the law.
Of course, I didn't know this.
But now they're trying to drag me into it and I You know what? Let's talk about all this after lunch.
I just want to enjoy this meal with you.
Well, actually, Gran, - it's a bit time-sensitive - Max? Tell me something about yourself.
Oh, my God, Gran.
Lesley is asking for your help.
It's nothing that can't wait until after lunch.
- Actually - Felix.
I said I was going to enjoy this meal.
And that is what I'm going to do.
How many times have I told Lydia to clear the table between courses? You know what, it's fine, I'll do it.
'Cause that thing we have to be at starts very, very soon.
Felix, stop with the theatrics.
I really don't mind.
I'll get him.
You have to keep it together or she's never gonna do this for us.
If we don't leave right now, we're gonna miss her bail hearing.
We can't go anywhere yet.
Oh, my God! Okay, I have a friend who still works in the public defender's office, and he's desperate for this job at my firm.
He will do literally anything for me right now.
- Meaning - Meaning I'll send him my arraignment notes, he'll haul ass to the courthouse and make sure Murphy's bail stays low enough.
Just get back in there.
Remember, under 300 grand.
Hi, Timothy.
Next! Murphy Mason.
Chair's right here.
Felix? Lesley? Hello? There's no one there, Miss Mason.
Do you have representation? Yes.
I do.
They're probably running late, I-I think.
- Um - I'm her lawyer, Judge.
Timothy Andrews.
Nice to see you again.
Who is Timothy Andrews? Lesley Bell sent me.
She got tied up.
You lucked out, trust me.
Where's Felix? Who's Felix? Are we ready, Counselor? Uh, yeah, actually.
I just need a, uh, moment to go over my notes.
I've already given this case its allotted time.
Now how does your client plea? Uh Uh Not guilty, Your Honor.
I am not guilty.
Yeah, yes.
Yes, not guilty, Your Honor.
And considering the fact that she is severely handicapped, I think that we could all agree she does not pose a flight risk and can be released on her own recognizance.
Judge, with all due respect, this is absurd.
Mason fled the state, the country, and the interrogation room after she was charged with the murder of Nia Bailey.
She's the definition of a flight risk.
But she's blind.
So she's not gonna go anywhere again.
I'm setting the bail at $2 million.
What? Your friend call you? Not yet.
I told you, I'll tell you when he does.
Gran, thank you so much again.
Oh, of course.
Mm, Lydia will get your coats.
And you're all welcome any time.
That includes you, Max.
Thank you.
Lunch was delicious.
And, listen, if you could make that call about our situation I would do anything for family, you know that.
Consider it done.
Thank you.
But, listen, if I do this, you will be present in my life.
I won't have you ignoring me the way you have for the past three years.
Understood? - Wh uh - Of course.
Well, can we talk about this Understood, Felix? Understood.
I love you both to the moon and back.
And I'll see you tomorrow for a benefit I'm hosting.
Shall I send one car, or two? One's fine.
I wish you could have been there.
She was totally convinced that she was getting out today.
- It was glorious.
- Yeah? Hey, uh, sorry to interrupt.
I just got a call from Lake County.
Both of the Bell siblings' cases were transferred up there, apparently? Wait, what? I guess it's in their jurisdiction.
I'm sorry, but the day we subpoenaed her for her door cam footage, the case gets transferred? That's extremely fishy.
Cases get transferred all the time.
Yeah, don't sweat it, man.
We have a solid case against Murphy.
Can you give me the names of all the members and pledges of the sorority? Thank you.
Y-You have to find this strange too, right? Honestly, Josh I'm not sure what more you want.
What? What, you want her in the electric chair or something? - No, I - Gene is trying to stop another Nia Bailey from killing thousands of people and all you care about is getting another piece of evidence on a girl who we already arrested.
Just let it go.
You're still here.
Hey, at least there's pancakes for breakfast.
Come on.
Just one second.
- Okay.
- This isn't the cafeteria.
Okay, come here.
Just sit-sit down.
Okay? I run Bible study here, so I am the only one with access to this cabinet, and don't worry, the guards love me.
They're gonna count us at meals tonight.
Okay, here we go.
Just eat.
For the love of God.
Look, at this point, Murphy, you are gonna die of starvation or you're gonna have to choose to trust me and eat the stupid cracker.
It is just a cracker.
I promise.
I mean it's that and the Body of Christ, but, you know Come on.
I mean, I knew you were hungry, but wow.
- Sorry.
- Don't be.
Just eat.
Like I said, you are gonna need some friends in here.
Don't these things come with, um with wine? In here? No.
But The girls and I made this for special occasions.
It'll do the trick.
- Oh, my God.
- Yeah.
It is not good.
I mean, I like cheap wine.
I-I drink really cheap wine.
But this is so bad.
That cost us, like, a hundred bucks for the tomatoes, so enjoy it.
I'm trying.
It's so tart.
Okay, come on.
Give me that.
I'm impressed.
Straight to the back of the throat, babe.
Let me try again.
- Hmm? - Let me try again.
Let me try it with Jesus.
Oh, my God.
What time is it? Savannah? Hey.
Savannah? Savannah.
You said you were gonna kill me.
I went in there to kill you.
I really did.
Then I thought, wouldn't it be fun if Murphy woke up to find that nice, innocent lady dead and know she was the reason why? Killing you is too easy.
I'm gonna make you suffer.
So, look, you can keep making your little friends in here, and I will pick them off one by one.
And when I get bored of that kill you, too.
All channels, all channels we need an emergency sweep, all cells.
There's a dead inmate in the chapel.
We need an emergency sweep of all cells.
Three down! Down.
Can I help you? I think we can help each other.
