Life Sentence (2018) s01e08 Episode Script

Sleepless Near Seattle

1 STELLA: Previously on "Life Sentence" - You're under arrest.
- I tipped off the police.
Oh, my God! ‭You got Aiden arrested?! In return for pleading guilty to the lesser charge of possession, you'll spend one week in county jail.
You will also serve 150 hours of community service.
You're going above and beyond, just like you did when Stella was sick.
I have to tell you, I feel so Sadie got accepted into Dr.
Freeman's clinical trial.
That's amazing! And I can't stop thinking about you I'm on fire WES: If you ever look at my wife like that again, I will not be so polite next time.
Okay, why don't we just go inside Will you get your hands off me?! WES: I got in a fight with Dr.
Grant.
I saw how he looked at you, how you looked at him.
If you wanna be with me, then you need to fix this.
They say that time heals all wounds SADIE: You have to come see me.
It's been too long.
Oh, my God.
You should have heard Dr.
Grant today.
He was so funny.
You were wrong, you were wrong, you were wrong but it doesn't fix everything.
[GRUNTING] Hey, you plan on sleeping any time soon? [GRUFFLY] I sleep during the day.
To do the things you know you should Cool.
And neither does running away.
Come on, let's go.
I can't go to school today.
Skin and bones Buddy, why don't you wanna go to school? This kid Jack's been picking on him.
Hey, are you awake? [SIGHS] Sort of.
Can I start talking now or do you need a second? - I could probably use - We need a time machine.
I'm sorry.
- What? - ‭This is how we fix things.
We go back to before I met Dr.
Grant, before I got this job.
Everything was much simpler back then.
Plus, everyone listened to better music.
I think you're getting a bit carried away, but, yes, I get it.
There isn't an easy way to fix this.
And I don't know what else I can do besides quit my job, and that seems totally crazy, because I would never do anything when I was alone with Dr.
Grant that I wouldn't do ‭if you were right there with us.
I would never cheat on you, Wes.
I know that.
It's nice to hear it, though.
I wouldn't.
Do you trust me? Yes.
Yes, I trust you.
But I don't trust him.
Which meant I had to set some boundaries at work.
But first, I had to welcome Aiden home from jail.
- Hey, guys.
- Oh! Are you okay? Was it awful? Do you have any new tattoos? If you do, I am not gonna judge.
But it does help me to see them early.
No tattoos, no problems.
Wasn't that bad.
Well, I've really missed having you here.
You don't have to say that.
I know I don't.
But I really did.
Guys, I'm fine.
Seriously, it was a week in county jail, not seven years in Tibet.
I'm beat.
I wanna go take a nap in my own bed.
I appreciate the welcome, but, please, live your lives.
[FOOTSTEPS FADE] [INDISTINCT P.
A.
ANNOUNCEMENT] Hey, Stella.
You're not supposed to be here today.
Dr.
Russo's here today.
Dr.
Russo, you're here, aren't you? - I am here.
- Well, I'm here, too.
And sometimes stuff like that happens in hospitals.
- Hey, how's your brother? - Don't do that.
Don't ask me about my family.
We can't be friends.
- Why not? - Seriously? My husband hit a wall.
You were there.
Remember? He told you? Yeah, of course he told me.
We're married.
Okay.
Got it.
Our relationship ‭is strictly professional now.
As far as I'm concerned, it was always professional.
That's right, you laid down the law, Stella, and made the perfect exit.
Unfortunately, you need to go in the other direction.
You heard me.
Atta girl.
Don't worry about a thing You'll learn to live again You're gonna learn to live again - [KNOCK ON DOOR] - Excuse me, but may I consult with you on a professional matter? - What do you want? - It's about Sadie.
I will allow it.
Well, she's supposed to start her clinical trial next week, but they wanna run tests today in Seattle and her aunt can't make it, so now she's refusing to go.
What do you mean? She has to go.
This trial could save her life.
And I tried to tell her that, but she won't listen to me.
I was hoping that maybe you could, you know, work your magic, talk to her.
- No problem.
I'll do that right now.
- Okay.
I know where her room is.
Okay.
Did you know that Jack has been picking on Frank at school? - I didn't.
No.
- Well, it's gotten bad.
I mean, it started off with teasing, but now Jack has pushed Frank.
Well, I'm sorry, ‭but how do you know that? My daughter told me.
And you believe her because? Because she's not a liar.
Kids make things up all the time, Lizzie, I mean Not my kids.
So, we should think of a solution.
I think we should let the kids just work it out.
I'm not really into helicopter parenting like you are.
And I'm late for yoga, so [MAN SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY IN DISTANCE] Well, as far as mandatory community service goes, this doesn't look so bad.
Mom, they're gonna make me build stuff with my body.
Oh, come on.
That'll be fun.
Look at all these criminals.
You think any of them have killed people? Oh, that guy looks shifty.
They're not all criminals.
Most of these people are volunteers.
Well, even better.
They'll share their joy of a hard day's work.
I'm not really a ‭ "hard day's work" kind of guy.
I have soft hands, Mom.
That is one of the things that women love most about me.
Oh! Stay.
[CAR DOOR OPENS, CLOSES] Don't forget these! What am I supposed to do with a tray of muffins? Share them with the convicts.
Muffins mean "Hello.
" And "Please don't shiv me.
" - I love you.
- ‭Okay.
- I love you so much! - Stop.
Bye.
Make good choices for once.
Sorry, I ‭couldn't help but see that.
Did your mom just give you muffins? No, I'm just holding onto these for warmth.
I'm Allie.
Volunteer.
Aiden.
Also a volunteer.
[INDISTINCT P.
A.
ANNOUNCEMENT] You're not gonna change my mind.
If you don't get these tests, Sadie, - you can't do the trial.
- I know.
I don't know anyone up there.
And doctors never know how to explain anything.
- That's what my aunt does.
- I get that.
But there's a waiting list a mile long for this trial, so if you don't give it a shot now, someone will take your place.
And you'll never know if you missed out on a miracle.
And trust me, miracles happen.
I'll only go if you come with me.
Then I will come with you.
It'll be fun.
Or it will be a total disaster.
[CHUCKLES] You couldn't give a girl a warning that you were driving? Don't get mad at me.
I asked you to talk her into coming, not come with her.
She said she'd only go if I came.
- So, come.
- ‭I can't come.
- So, don't come.
- I have to come or Sadie won't go.
- I don't know what to tell you.
- Just get in the car.
I have to call Wes.
Look, I know it's not an ideal situation.
You of all people know how hard it'll be for Sadie to take this leap into the unknown.
When I did my trial, you were there for me and that's part of the reason I think it worked.
Sadie She doesn't have this kind of support.
She needs me.
Wes? - Are you okay? - It's fine.
I understand.
Stella, we have to get going.
[SIGHS] I love you, Wes.
And I'm so sorry.
[ENGINE STARTS] I'll I'll call you from the road.
[PHONE BEEPS] [PHONE BEEPS] [SIGHS] - You are not a helicopter.
- Damn right, I'm not.
I am a tank.
And I will run her down.
What size trash bag do we need to hold a human body? Okay, I know how you feel, but I don't think we should be fighting violence with violence.
Though Mama Bear Lizzie is very sexy.
And let's deal with this through the proper channels.
- I - ‭I will call the principal, and we can all sit down and work it out, okay? You're right.
We will do this your way.
Thank you.
Now, would you mind saying "you're right" one more time, because it's so nice to hear.
Unh-unh.
[SIGHS] GPS VOICEOVER: Go straight for 137 miles.
[ENGINE HUMMING QUITELY] Maybe we could listen to some tunes? Sure.
Yeah, that's fine with me.
- I trade my soul for a wish - Oh, my man, this song - Pennies and dimes for a kiss - Yeah, talk about overplayed.
- I wasn't looking for this - Right? - But now you're in my way - I mean, you can change it if you want to.
- Your stare was holdin' - No, I don't care.
- Ripped jeans, skin was showin' - It's ‭It's totally up to you.
- Hot night, wind was blowin' - I can live with it, Yeah.
if you can.
Where you think you're going, baby ALL: Hey, I just met you And this is crazy But here's my number So call me, maybe It's hard to look right At you, baby But here's my number So call me, maybe Oh! This is my third build.
I love it so much.
What about you? It's my first.
Keep pushing, people! I want to get this framed out by lunch! Supervisor's pretty tough, huh? She just doesn't like to waste time.
That's a shame, 'cause I could be the spokesperson for wasting time.
I don't believe that for a second.
You're here, aren't you? Just trying to do some good in the world.
Hey, do-gooder.
Shoe's untied.
[HAMMERING, MACHINES RUNNING] [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] Right here.
Oh, wait.
I want in this.
Ready? And field trip crew! [CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKS] Aw, cute.
I like that one.
All right, I'll send it to you.
And I think I'll grab some snacks.
[CLEARS THROAT] - So, that was fun.
- No, it wasn't.
Seriously, you don't have to deny that you were having fun.
- It's pretty obvious that you were.
- ‭Fine.
But I was having fun with Sadie.
I was not having fun with you.
Okay.
Whatever you say, Mighty Mouse.
And that's another thing, no more nicknames.
I'm really starting to regret you coming on this trip.
So, you did want me to come.
What? ‭ You sent me to talk to Sadie, hoping that I'd come with you, didn't you? No.
No, I did not.
Honestly, I don't know what to believe anymore after what you did in that bar.
What I did in the bar? I saw the way that you looked at me.
Yeah, I only looked at you that way because you were looking right back at me the exact same way.
No, I was not.
The only was I was looking at you was like, "Hey, that guy's up there singing," because you were.
And where else was I supposed to look? You were up on a stage, my body was facing that stage, and my eyeballs were pointed in that direction because I have human face.
I'm not a deer or some sort of prey animal.
You know you only talk this much when you're nervous, right? Why you nervous? I'm not nervous.
And you need to quit acting like you know me so well - because you don't.
- If you keep talking like this, I am gonna quit the hospital and I'm never gonna come back.
You're quitting? Oh.
No, sweetie.
I'm - Look what you did.
- Wait, what I did? [FADING OUT] ‭Yeah.
‭No, I'm not the one who gave a whole monologue - about the situation.
- Oh, really? Well, you're the one WILL: Stay here and get warm, okay? - Is she okay? - Yeah, she's gonna be fine.
It was just a panic attack, but her pulse is still racing.
How you doing? Fine.
Is your tongue pressed against the roof of your mouth? - How'd you know? - It's an anxiety thing.
I've been there.
We are part of a club that nobody wants to be in.
I wanna go home.
Can we make one stop first? - I don't want to do the trial.
- Okay.
New plan I'm driving.
Wait, I only have a scooter license.
You're driving, but I'm telling you where to go.
DIEGO: Look, I'm sorry that you have you to spend the day thinking about her in a car with that guy.
Yeah.
- Am I helping? - Not in the slightest.
Oh, okay.
Got it.
Hey.
Are you Diego? Uh, yeah.
You wanna tell me why I got a call from the principal's office asking me to go in and talk about your son? You're Todd, Jack's dad.
And you must be the little man who sent his wife to my house to handle your business for you.
Uh, first of all, my size is average, and, uh, second, nobody sends Lizzie anywhere.
If you met her, you would you would know that.
Whatever.
Look, boys will be boys, okay? I don't have time to get involved in kindergarten play fighting.
Well, you have time to join a kickball league.
Let's go warm up, yeah? Okay.
You have a good day, muffin man? I did, actually.
Thanks for not blowing my cover with the lady friend back there.
Oh, I will never.
You've clearly got her heart on house arrest.
Ha-ha.
That's funny.
I'll see you tomorrow.
Hey, you heading home? Just for a few, then I'm meeting up with some friends.
- Hey, do you wanna join us? - I must ask if it's after 8:00.
Yeah.
Why? Why not just go right now? [CHUCKLES] I was actually planning on going home first.
Or we could just go to my home.
That was too forward.
Unless it wasn't.
- Are you okay? - I don't know.
Are you afraid of the dark or something? [CHUCKLES] That's ridiculous.
No, it's just that you're so pretty, I wanna be able to see your face, and that is hard to do in the dark.
So will I see you later? No.
You will not.
I have a thing.
Yep.
Okay.
[CHUCKLES] Really? - Come on! - Let's go, D! [CHEERING CONTINUES] Ah! Great, good job! Go, go, go, go, go, go! [CHEERING, SHOUTING] Come on, D, let's go! [WES'S VOICE ECHOING] - [CRUNCHES] - Oh! - Oh! - [CROWD OOHING] Boys will be boys.
WOMAN: [IN DISTANCE] Is he okay? [TODD GROANING] [CAR DOORS CLOSE] Hey, do you mind waiting here? I want to show Sadie something.
- Take your time.
- Where are we going? I'm wanna grab you a little luck.
I told you I wasn't doing the trial.
I know.
That doesn't mean you couldn't use a little luck anyway.
This is the darkest sky in the northwest.
I came here before my trial.
The one that saved you? Yep.
How'd you find this place? I didn't.
My husband did.
Just a little bit farther.
Where are you taking me? Ooh, are you taking me to a fancy outdoor restaurant? [CHUCKLES] Keep walking.
[HIGH-PITCHED CHITTER] Do I hear raccoons? Uh, I grew up in London, so I do not know what they sound like.
All right, and we are here.
You brought me into the middle of the woods? Are you gonna murder me? Look up.
Then you're crying, then you can't decide Whoa.
My life's uncertain and sometimes strange The one thing I've learned is it won't stay the same Wes, this is amazing.
So, I thought that you could use a little luck before your trial.
And I know you think we make our own luck, but I also know that you don't have such a strict policy on wishes.
So, I thought that we could make a wish on a shooting star.
There's a meteor shower tonight, so there should be a lot of them.
Tangled in my hair Crazy how much my life has changed In just a year There's people I've met, people I've left And some that didn't make it here Hey You okay? I wanna make a wish.
I just don't wanna get my hopes up again.
And you can't decide I have to accept the fact that I'm really dying.
We're all dying, babe.
The one thing I've learned Is it won't stay the same Just not tonight, right? Even in the darkness - I'll be okay - No.
Not tonight.
The sun will come up The seasons will change The sun will come up Right there! You see it? Yeah.
The sun will come up The seasons will change And when I saw that shooting star, I thought maybe I did have a shot.
- So, now we wait? - As long as it takes.
[EXHALES] Ah! There he is.
Hey, I'm gonna grab a shower.
He's really not talking to me anymore.
Well, he was in jail for a week, and you put him there.
All things considered, I think that your relationship is doing surprisingly well.
I just wish he'd open up to me a little.
Well, you were never that close.
You're right.
We weren't.
[SIGHS] But we were getting there.
Now, I don't know.
- Well, it's a process, Peter.
- I know.
I just miss him.
And I miss you.
I've been thinking about our kiss.
I've been thinking about that, too.
I was lost in a moment, Peter.
And I think that we both know that moment is over.
Right.
Of course.
Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking.
Hmm.
WILL: So, how'd it go? I think I'm ready to give it a shot.
- Does that mean - She's in.
Excellent.
Okay, well, I called Dr.
Freeman, just in case, and, uh, he agreed to see you in the morning.
And your aunt gave us permission to get a couple motel rooms if if you're up for it.
I'm up for it.
Stella? Yeah.
'Course.
Yes.
Just got to make a super-fun phone call first.
Sunny D, got to say, it means a lot that you guys are making such an effort to hang out with me.
You kidding? You're family.
We're your after-8:00 crew.
Good, 'cause you're all I got, unless I can find a girl with a 7:45 bedtime.
[CROWD CHEERING ON TV] Hey, so what'd it feel like to level that jackass, huh? Todd got what he deserved.
Hmm.
[GRIMACES] There's something wrong with this beer.
[CHUCKLES] It's nonalcoholic.
That would be it.
[SIGHS] [DOOR CLOSES] So, apparently, Stella is spending the night up there.
Something came up.
Hey, Wes, my sister loves you.
She would never do anything - [PHONE RINGS] - Uh-oh.
Hello? Okay.
Okay, slow down, slow down.
Why? Yeah.
No, yeah, yeah, yeah.
I will be home as soon as I can.
What What's going on? Todd's in the hospital.
So, do you wanna have a pillow fight or a dance party? We should trash this place.
I don't know what people do in hotel rooms on field trips.
Sneak into the boys' room? That is not happening.
Stella, you know you can talk to me, right? I'm not a little kid.
I don't know what you mean.
Okay, because it seems to me that Dr.
Grant likes you.
And he's really cool and super-hot.
I'm sorry, how old did you say you were again? Is Wes hot, too? [CHUCKLES] ‭Yes, he is.
Ooh, wow.
I see how this is hard for you.
It's not hard for me.
I love Wes.
And I'm I'm really happy with him, but - [SIGHS] - ‭But? [PHONE CLICKS] It's just not the perfect fairytale I always hoped it would be when I was dreaming about it from my hospital bed.
Turns out that real life, real love it's way more complicated than that.
If it makes you feel any better I've never even had a boyfriend.
And I may not get to.
Hey, don't talk like that.
You have a lot of life to live.
We probably should've stuck with the pillow fight after all, huh? Nah.
I like talking to you better.
[SADIE GIGGLES] [GASPS, CHUCKLES] Oh! - Oh, my goodness! - [BOTH LAUGH] [LAPTOP CHIMING] [CHIMING CONTINUES] [KEYS JANGLE] [CHIMING CONTINUES] [SIGHS] - Oh, hey.
- Hi.
I-I wasn't actually expecting you to answer.
I've been calling you for days.
Yeah, well, I've been ignoring you for days.
How are you? Good.
Settling into the new job in San Francisco.
You? I've been better.
[SIGHS] Yeah, I see that.
You've got that sad eyebrow thing of yours going on.
[CHUCKLES] You called to mock me? Of course.
I'm English.
But I also wanted to run something by you.
Do you have a minute? I've got all night.
[SIGHS] I can't even avoid you for five minutes, can I? Guess not.
Well, I just needed some air.
And now I've received some, so Hey, how's Sadie? She's good.
What are you guys up to? We just polished off the mini-bar, gossiping about boys.
[CHUCKLES] She's never had a boyfriend and she's afraid she'll never get the chance to.
Nah, she will.
She's gonna date all sorts of boys.
I mean, not not all sorts.
Hopefully, just the right sorts.
She deserves that.
She does.
Stella, I don't know what you did back there in the woods, but I think you might have saved her life.
I I don't know.
I think you might be saving mine, too.
- [SIGHS] Don't say that.
- No, I'm serious.
I've seen how positive you are after everything you've been through.
You inspire me.
You give me hope.
You know, Will, I What? Nothing.
I shouldn't be out here.
Yet, here you are.
And now here I go.
Goodnight.
I don't know what I'm gonna do.
I mean, I I have to do something.
Please don't beat yourself up, D.
It was an accident.
It wasn't.
What do you mean, "it wasn't"? I mean I hurt him on purpose.
What happened to not fighting violence with violence? - I hadn't met the guy yet.
- ‭Diego! I got to go to the hospital.
And say what? I don't know.
"I'm sorry"? For intentionally hurting him? What were you thinking, Diego? Hey, if you admit this, then you're responsible.
I am responsible, either way.
Right, but legally responsible.
You've gotta stop and think about this for a second, okay? They could sue us.
We could lose everything.
- I have to.
- ‭Diego, hey This is our lives.
‭This is our children's lives.
You can't admit that you did this.
[AIDEN GROANS] You okay up there? AIDEN: I'm fine! ‭I don't wanna talk about it! Okay.
[MUG THUDS] [GROANS] Son? Would you like to talk about it? [WHINING] Fine.
I'll come down.
How's it going? [SIGHS] [SIGHS] You know the feeling when you meet a hot girl and they're really into you, and they wanna hang out with you at night, but you can't 'cause you're wearing an ankle bracelet? Of course.
‭That's a tale as old as time.
Okay, never mind.
[CHUCKLES] What happened? Nothing.
That's the problem.
I couldn't close the deal.
Turns out, loss of mojo's an unforeseen condition of my parole.
Aiden, it's just one girl.
Girls are the only thing I'm good at, Dad.
I suck at everything else.
Without that, I-I don't even know who I am.
You're my son.
The loser.
Said so yourself.
Well, I was wrong.
I didn't know you when I said that, but I do now.
And you're a good man with a great heart.
I wish I had something to do with that, but I didn't.
You figured that part out all on your own.
[CHUCKLES] So you made some mistakes.
Yeah.
‭People make mistakes.
You know how many mistakes I've made? Too many to list.
Could you try? Back in high school, ‭I plagiarized a term paper.
I ran over ‭my college dean's dog twice on two separate occasions.
- On purpose? - ‭No, and he was fine.
I mean, he walked funny, but he was a really happy dog.
The point is if this girl can't see beyond your mistakes, see you for who you really are in your heart, then you have to start surrounding yourself with women who understand that nobody's perfect.
And if you find some, please introduce one of them to me.
I'm very lonely.
[LAUGHS] FREEMAN: Given your test results, we're cleared to start right away.
Dr.
Grant and I can discuss the details of your protocol while you head out to the waiting room.
Oh.
Can I stay? Well, it's just just a bunch of medical talk.
Still, I've been through this, and there were a lot of things I wish I'd known.
Stella, Sadie's 13.
But in cancer years, that's like 100.
All right.
You will be coming here once a week for three months, followed by a month of intensive in-patient treatment.
How intensive? ‭Like, how bad could it get? Well, with any trial, there there can be some risks.
She knows that.
She can hear the risks.
There could be issues with memory, pain, internal bleeding, possible paralysis.
These lists are always scary.
Doesn't mean any of it's gonna happen.
How many people have you cured? We have not yet completed a human trial.
Wait, you haven't? But I'm optimistic we can get as high as a 3% to 5% success rate.
- That doesn't sound high.
- Well, it is for a trial.
Hey I made it.
So will you.
But I might not? And I might get paralyzed.
Can I think about this? Yeah.
Yeah, of course.
I saw a birthday cake on the nurse's desk.
I'm gonna grab a slice before we go.
This is why you don't let a 13 year old sit in on these conversations.
Stella, we have pulled so many strings to get her in here.
If she backs out now Then we'll find her something else.
Giving her that information was the right thing to do, though the two of you could work on your delivery.
Okay, now, I am also gonna go get some cake.
[INDISTINCT P.
A.
ANNOUNCEMENT] Hey, sweetie.
- Where's Daddy? - He went to the hospital.
Mom, will you watch the kids? WOMAN: Sure, hon! Sweetie, Grandma's here.
I'll be back.
Hey.
Careful.
You almost stepped through a shadow.
[LAUGHING] That's funny.
But, uh the truth is, I'm not afraid of the dark.
I am a convicted criminal with two strikes who's on house arrest and has to be home by 8:00.
But that's not the whole picture here.
It's not who I am.
- I would love to tell you - ‭Pass.
Sorry, but I'm not looking to casually date a convict.
[SCOFFS] Man, that was rough.
Yeah.
Wow.
I'm surprised you can still sit upright after what just happened to your butt.
Yeah, it doesn't hurt as bad as my hands.
Let me see.
Yeah, those are gonna turn into some pretty rough calluses.
Yeah, I know.
Don't sound so depressed.
Calluses are sexy.
They're a sign of somebody who's willing to do the work.
You know I'm not here 'cause I wanna be, right? I'm aware.
I didn't come here because I wanted to, either.
Not at first.
But then being here, helping people it was helping me, too.
Thanks.
All right, butter hands, put your gloves on and get back to work.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER IN DISTANCE] [SIGHS] We're gonna have to start all over.
So, we'll just start over.
It's not that easy, Stella.
That doesn't mean you give up.
You said you were hopeful.
Yeah, it was easy to be hopeful when she was gonna do the trial.
Well, hope isn't hope if you only have it when it's convenient.
Hey.
When we come back to Seattle, I'd like to see the Space Needle.
Why would we come back? For the trial.
I thought you didn't want to do the trial after what you heard.
You can't face your fears if you don't know what they are.
And besides this could be my shooting star.
Yeah, it could.
[SIGHS DEEPLY] [SIGHS] I figured you'd be talking to Todd.
I wanted to.
But then I was thinking about what you said.
And I wanted to do the right thing.
I just I don't know what that is.
Diego you are the most decent man I've ever met.
I love that about you.
When I said that coming clean could ruin our lives, what I forgot was that not coming clean could ruin yours.
[SIGHS] I'm sorry.
I panicked.
[SNIFFLES] You have to do what's right.
What if we lose the house? Honestly? I would be happy living with you and the kids in a cardboard box.
You know what's sad? Hmm? They'd probably really like that.
[CHUCKLING] God, they'd love it.
[CHUCKLES] Good luck.
Yeah.
[DOOR OPENS] - [DOOR CLOSES] - [SIGHS] GRANT: Okay, well, you were right.
Giving Sadie all the facts was the right call.
I just I I didn't know if she could handle it.
Never underestimate the power of a young woman when she's fighting to save her life.
I should have trusted you.
Yeah, well I should've trusted you, too.
Look, Stella, I'm I'm not trying to mess up your marriage.
I know you're not.
You're trying to help Sadie, and you need my help to do that.
So I won't avoid you completely.
Oh, thank you.
And how's Wes gonna feel about that? Wait, I'm sorry.
No talking about family.
We're not friends.
- We are friends.
- ‭Oh, we are? - Yes.
- ‭Okay.
And Wes will be ‭completely fine with that.
He is supportive and amazing, and I know that he and I are in it together.
Well, I am glad to hear that.
Well, thanks for driving, and I'll I'll see you when I see you.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER] [SIGHS] [INDISTINCT P.
A.
ANNOUNCEMENT] [TELEPHONE RINGING IN DISTANCE] Todd? What do you want? Um I just want to say how sorry I am.
For what? I think we both know that I deliberately tried to hurt you.
Now, I wanna help.
Okay, I'm gonna stop you right there.
You didn't hurt me.
I fell.
But I I tackled you on purpose.
Dude, look at me and look at you.
You couldn't take me down with a harpoon.
Really? You wanna step closer and find out? No.
No.
[CHUCKLES] I'm good.
Then get the hell out of my room.
- About Frank and Jack - I'll take care of it.
Now get out.
[SIGHS] STELLA: As I walked home, I felt so grateful for the man who saved my life with a shooting star and I couldn't wait to tell him.
What are you doing out here? Hey, Stells.
I'm glad you're home.
Are you going somewhere? I texted you.
You never responded.
Yeah, I was with Sadie.
I got a job interview in San Francisco.
And they asked if I could fly tonight.
They needed an answer, and since you never responded, I told them I could go.
I didn't know you were looking for a job.
I wasn't.
- Pippa set it up.
- I'm sorry.
- Pippa set it up? - Yeah.
She recommended me for it.
It's not at her firm, but she knows the guy who runs the department and it's kind of a dream job.
Oh.
I can't keep working vampire hours at a job I hate.
It's not fair to me.
Of course, it's just San Francisco? Well, it's just an interview.
Can we talk about this? I was gonna make us a picnic under the stars.
[SIGHS] I'm sorry, I I really have to make this flight.
Wes, how am I supposed to feel about this? I don't know.
How was I supposed to feel about you spending the night in Seattle? I trusted you.
I just think now ‭it's your turn to trust me.
Okay.
I'll be back in a couple days.
[SMOOCHES] Love you.
Welcome home.
Just had a breakthrough - I'm used to being your number two - Thank you.
I play the sidekick Let you decide, know we're the perfect fit Now, let the flame die out and rip the Band-Aid off So slow that you can feel it b-u-urning B-u-urning Don't want that sad goodbye, let's keep it low key 'Cause every love story's a gho-ost story Gho-ost story It's better to walk away than to run with fake friends No use for excuses so bad things come to an end I'm not spurned and forgotten 'cause I only go for gold Don't need no fake friends [SIGHS DEEPLY] Might as well shut down Right there! You see it? Yeah.
