Lodge 49 (2018) s02e05 Episode Script

Estrella y Mar

1 Oh! Blaise, we need you.
Everything outside these walls is dangerous.
So I'm staying here.
CONNIE: Ernie! I'm in here.
Don't worry.
I'll explain.
It's rude just showing up, demanding stories.
Stop it.
You're welcome any time.
It's just, uh, we grew up hearing the same stories about her, looking at the same pictures.
- Dud? - Beth? Do you want do something crazy? BOTH: Yes! [VEHICLE DOOR OPENS] [VEHICLE DOOR CLOSES] [BIRDS CHIRPING] [CROWS SQUAWKING] [EXHALES DEEPLY] Um Thanks for meeting with me, Tim.
Beth thought it was best if I come alone.
I brought these as sort of a peace offering for you.
Look, I just wanted to say I know the past few days have been weird.
- Hm.
- A lot of ups and downs for all of us.
And Beth and I obviously made a choice a-a big choice that really affected a lot of people.
And I-I can see that clearly now.
But what I wanted you to know, Tim, is that Beth and I are still 100% happy with the decision that we made.
Just promise me she won't get hurt.
I promise.
Here are the rings.
You owe me five grand.
Oh Why's there a door up there? That's a That's a good question.
- [CROWS SQUAWKING LOUDLY] - Um, I've asked around and everybody seems to have a different answer.
[SPLAT] Second floor's really confusing.
[BIRDS CHIRPING] Why's your wife on the couch? DUD: Um She gets super hot - and sweaty at night.
- [SNORING] - Right.
- Yeah.
We're learning a lot about each other.
- Mm.
- Yeah, yeah.
Hey, I heard her on the phone last night.
She and her mom were really screaming at each other.
It was, like, violent.
Yeah.
I know.
It's It's a bad scene.
Sorry.
Her mom yelled at me for awhile, too.
I did not like it.
Dad never yelled at us.
Mm, maybe he should have.
We probably needed it.
[SLURPS] Well, anyway, parents pulled the funding for the honeymoon.
So, Beth's got to go back to work today.
[INHALES DEEPLY] I should probably wake her up.
Where does she work? Um, I don't know.
She She does personal finance or insurities.
Insurities? I don't know, okay? She works at an office and she does office things.
And me, too, hopefully.
Actually, later today, got an appointment at Temp Joy, you know? Yeah.
I think it is, uh It's time to start bringing home the bacon.
- You know what I mean? - Yeah.
Mm-hmm.
Yeah.
Yeah.
[EXHALES DEEPLY] Oh, um, also, I'll be moving into the trailer full time so that you can have tons more room for your pyramid scheme water.
[LAUGHS] Cant believe you got suckered by that crocodile.
Don't worry.
It's a quid pro quo arrangement.
The crocodile's teaching me how to bet the ponies.
Valuable life skills, you know? - Wow.
- Yeah.
[SNORES LOUDLY] Oh, crap! Oh! Oh, is that the time?! Oh Hey.
Um I got the rings.
And Tim he's okay? Right? I mean, does he, like Does he hate me? No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
No, he's good.
He's doing good.
And And I think that we had a really, you know, productive dialogue.
- Okay.
- Yeah.
Hi.
Hi.
[DOOR CLOSES] Okay, I know that you think that my marriage is a huge mistake.
And yeah, okay, we made an impulsive decision, you know? But who's to say it's not gonna work out? I agree.
[CUP CLINKS] [SHOWER RUNNING IN DISTANCE] No, you don't.
As long as you're happy, that's all that matters.
I support you, and I know that things are gonna work out for you guys, so [SIGHS] Last night was well, I'm gonna go ahead and use "understatement.
" It's pretty good.
[CHUCKLES] - I know.
- [CROW SQUAWKS] But this reunion might not be what you think it is, Fontaine.
I was cool with you on the couch.
You're the one who came crawling up in here.
I was bored.
That's not it.
The problem is I'm irresistible.
I've been struggling with that burden my whole life.
- [CHUCKLES] - Listen.
I don't know what the hell this is.
I'm just trying to go with the flow.
That's good.
I'm glad we could just kind of [INHALES DEEPLY] be around each other for a couple days.
Like old times.
Sort of.
I got to say, you do seem a little different.
I can't put my finger on it.
Me? I'm different? I'm gonna make some coffee.
Um, I texted Scott, and he's coming over.
Scott's coming over here? Yeah, I can't I can't just hide.
We all need to talk.
[OBJECTS CLATTER, THUD] - [GRUNTS] Son of a bitch! - [CROW SQUAWKS] I'm okay.
This is the last of it.
Thanks again for going over there.
Your shop's really wrecked.
Talk to your insurance people yet? - Yeah, what did the police say? - I don't have insurance, and I did not bother calling the police.
[CHUCKLES] I have more important things going on.
Are you okay? Have you been sleeping? Yeah, you've been holed up in here awhile.
I mean, let's get some lunch or something.
- Fresh air.
- Yeah.
I am not leaving this room.
What about your shop? I'm glad it's gone.
The trivial demands of commerce were blinding me from the true path.
Gentlemen! My dear constable.
My dear astronomer.
I, your humble Majestic Knight, thank you for schlepping my crap over here, but now I must gently ask you to leave me the hell alone so that I might complete my work! Thank you! So how much is rent? Oh, I don't pay rent.
[CHUCKLES] Yeah, yeah.
According to the last owner, this place doesn't even exist.
So it's free.
- Huh.
- Yeah.
Does that thing work? No, no.
Um But I was part of an investment group that was going to drill for oil on Orbis land.
- Oh.
- Yeah, yeah.
And then we found out that all the oil got sucked out, so That was a bummer.
[EXHALES DEEPLY] But it doesn't matter.
'Cause this place is like is like Walden.
You know, like, we could we could plant a-a garden there.
We got a tunnel that goes to the lodge.
And maybe we could even - Mm.
Mm-hmm.
- dig a pool.
[CHUCKLES] Uh Beth, um It would be It would be really easy if we could just we could take it all back right now, you know? Say we made a big, dumb mistake because you were afraid of marrying Tim and I was severely concussed.
So that's You know? But you don't want to do that.
Do you? No.
Good, right.
Me either.
Nope.
We're married.
We're doing this.
And you know what? It's really good that I'm going right back to work because then we can get away from each other.
Yeah.
I just mean absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Maybe, you know Maybe later tonight, we can, you know, consummate the whole deal.
- We already did.
- Sure, don't get me wrong.
It was great, but there was a lot of hand stuff.
It just seemed like your leg was really bothering you.
No! No.
Beth.
- Okay, look.
Check it out, all right? - [CHUCKLES] I got the strength of a thousand men.
And I'm gonna carry you over the threshold.
[CHUCKLES] Now here we go.
Oh! Oh! Okay, can you just reach the door - get the door handle? - Oh.
Can you get the door? - Aah! - Aah! [METAL RATTLING] [CROW SQUAWKS] It It The The The blindfold is really hard.
I'm sorry.
It's the remedy or method or whatever.
The "remedy.
" From Harwood Fritz Merrill.
I feel great.
I haven't had a seizure in a couple weeks.
It's working.
Oh, come on.
It's just some kind of placebo.
If you tell her it's a placebo, you're ruining it.
[EXHALES SHARPLY] [CROW SQUAWKS] [METAL RATTLES] So, you're okay with this? Yes, absolutely.
He just rolled his eyes at me.
- What?! No, I didn't.
- Hey.
Hey.
Look.
Connie, you can't give up on western medicine for some alchemical voodoo.
If Blaise wants to drink the Kool-Aid, who cares? Not you.
Now just please let let me take you to the doctor.
I spent two years with doctors and all they could tell me was that I had a "brain cloud.
" Is this any crazier than that? I want you to get word out around the lodge I'm back and people are just gonna have to get used to me doing weird shit for a while.
I came back because I need support from the people I love.
Ernie was my first stop because I knew he wouldn't freak out as much.
And it's been totally platonic.
No, we slept together last night.
Oh, Jesus! I'm not hiding things anymore.
I know this is difficult, Scott, but we're three adults, and I want to figure out a way to keep the best parts of what we have without it all burning up.
I need you both.
No.
Well, if you're asking for an open marriage, then I'm sorry, I'm not gonna do it.
No.
No! I'm not gonna be part of some depraved hippie freak show! [METAL RATTLES] But if that is what we're doing - We're not doing that.
- Well, then what the hell are we doing?! I can't believe that I'm saying this, but I agree with Scott.
I mean, I've been waiting we've both been waiting for you to come to some kind of decision.
I've been trying to roll with it, but I don't know what you want from us.
Yeah, you're not making it very easy for either of us.
I don't care about making things easy for you! I want to make this easy for me.
Christ! I came home to heal Ugh! I hate that word, but here we are.
So that's what I'm gonna do, with or without you.
[SIGHS] Can one of you call me an Uber? I want to go to the lodge.
[CROW SQUAWKS] You're gonna love Tony.
I told him all about you.
Really? And what did Tony the Psychic say about me? He said your mom died young, so you assumed you would, too.
But you've already lived longer than she did, so now you're at a threshold.
Of what? Your life.
There's a glow to you of fire.
You're ready to be reborn.
I can see that, too.
That's why you're so perfectly positioned to downsell a shit-ton of product.
- [WOMAN CRYING] - [BEADS CLINKING] Hey, Lenore.
Hi, Tony.
Liz? Hello, Tony the Psychic.
I have an important question for you, Liz.
I want you to be 100% honest.
Okay.
Do you like chocolate chip cookies? Because I just made a fresh batch.
[CHUCKLES] Estrella y Mar in the fourth.
At 16-1? Really? If the magi slash that before tomorrow, I will let you know.
Okay.
Let's do it.
Wait, so you just know who's gonna win - because you can see the future? - Oh, no.
I hang around the track a lot.
I'm friends with a lot of the jockeys, the trainer, the stable hands.
Plus the sharps, the touts, the drunks, the pickpockets.
Salt of the earth.
Basically, I have the inside info.
He's a brilliant handicapper who happens to be a psychic.
Voilà.
Hm.
So, you can see the future, just not race results? Look, I am a professional psychic.
I make money as a psychic.
Which means I'm a psychic.
So You can't see shit, can you? I'm just a regular guy trying to make a living in a fallen world.
Let's leave it at that.
Thanks, darling.
Mm-hmm.
- Mwah.
- Mwah.
See you next time.
Yep.
Would you mind if I, um, have another cookie? Please do.
Thanks.
Oh, by the way, Liz.
Lenore mentioned that you're a twin.
Yeah.
Twins are a cosmic error.
You're supposed to be born on opposite sides of the Earth.
Lots of people have twins, they just don't know it, but sometimes one chases the other and winds up in the wrong place.
I'm guessing you chased your brother because you knew he needed you.
Does that makes sense? No.
You're stuck in the wrong place.
I need something stable.
Uh, I have a new open-ended assignment.
Oh, perfect.
But be careful, Ross.
'Cause if this works out, you're not gonna be able to call this place "Temp Joy" anymore.
You're gonna start calling it "Permanent Joy.
" [LAUGHS] [CHUCKLES] My wife does that.
The "almost laugh.
" You're married.
Yeah! Newlywed.
This weekend.
Uh-huh.
It's been kind of a whirlwind, actually.
I was supposed to go down to Mexico with a dream painter.
We were gonna make a play to corner the Bitcoin market.
It's Do you know how Bitcoin works, Ross? No.
I haven't really mastered it, either, to be honest.
But Well, anyway we needed these scrolls.
And they're ancient.
They're ancient scrolls, and they're down in in, um they're d they're in Mexico, but it's it doesn't matter anymore.
Because the painter betrayed me, and and Beth was there to pick up the pieces.
She put me back together.
[CHUCKLES] [TELEPHONE RINGS IN DISTANCE] You know, Ross.
I always come in here and I go on and on, but I never ask what's going on with you.
How are you doing? I'm fine.
I guess.
Dating anybody? [EXHALES SHARPLY] Here and there.
There was this one guy I was kind of hoping [CHUCKLES] It doesn't matter.
Um, let me get your info together.
No, no, no.
It does matter.
Love matters, Ross.
[INDISTINCT TALKING] TEAM LEADER: What's wrong with your leg? Oh, nothing.
It's just a shark bite.
Yeah, it shouldn't affect my ability to enter data.
This is you.
Okay, great.
A new home.
Thanks.
- [EXHALES SHARPLY] - Dud? Beth.
[EXHALES] What are you doing here? I work here.
Why are you here? Temp Joy sent me.
TIM: You've got to be kidding me.
Oh, hey, Tim.
What's Tim doing here? - He works here.
- Yeah.
This is where we met.
So now everybody hates me, and they're writing crap about me on the bathroom stalls.
I know it was you, Carla.
You coward.
[TELEPHONE RINGS IN DISTANCE] - I'm just gonna call - What?! I'm just gonna call Hey, hey.
I'm gonna call Temp Joy, okay? And I'll get a new assignment.
See? You know? Okay, well, I'll I'll see you at home tonight.
Okay, honey? [GRUNTS] You know, I can take the couch.
No, it's I get the night sweats.
It's my problem.
I want it to be our problem.
Dud.
I'm exhausted.
Can we just go to sleep? It's a marathon, not a sprint.
[EXHALES DEEPLY] I'm just so excited to take you to the lodge.
[LAUGHS] Introduce you to everybody.
[CHUCKLES] Yeah.
I just wish you could've met my dad.
He'd be happy for us.
He would.
And he would've loved having us over.
Our house was always kind of like the gathering place.
Everybody in the neighborhood, they'd come over and use our pool.
Yeah, they'd just walk right through the side gate all summer long.
[CHUCKLES] He always liked having lots of people around.
Maybe that's 'cause my mom wasn't there.
Yeah.
He was probably lonely.
No wonder he hooked up with the crocodile.
[SNORING] Yeah.
Yeah.
I've just never been in a long-term relationship before.
We just need to find our rhythm.
Three days isn't long-term.
Yeah, no, I mean moving forward, like, for the rest of our lives.
But it seems like if you're already trying to talk yourself into it, maybe it's not the best thing.
I know, but it was just the way it happened.
Like it was meant to be.
You know? Plus, we took sacred vows Hell, maybe you're right.
You guys need more time.
I just don't know how I'm supposed to feel.
Like, day to day.
Well, the best test for me was always running errands.
- Errands? - Yeah.
If you're looking forward to running errands with someone, that's a good sign.
Like, you'd rather do the most boring shit in the world with them than something fun with anybody else.
Uh, normal stuff like the grocery store, dry-cleaner's.
Suddenly, those places are kind of magic because you're together.
- [BALL CLINKS] - Oh.
Did you run errands with Connie? Oh, no, no, no.
We never had that kind of space.
But I ran a lot of errands with Trish.
Trish? My ex.
Oh, right.
The gut punch.
I don't get that.
Wh-What happened to you guys? Uh, it was a long time ago.
It doesn't matter.
She's good.
She got her own family now.
Well, Connie's back.
- [CHUCKLES] - You can run errands.
[LAUGHS] Yeah.
That'd be fun.
Walking around the produce section with a blindfolded crazy lady.
Ha ha! Huh? Mm.
Well, look.
It could be fun.
You just got to give it a try, you know? Look, when I first started down this road with Blaise with the remedies and stuff, I thought it was weird, but now I'm doing great.
- Are you? - Yeah.
Seems like your leg is getting worse.
Look, you and Connie are supposed to be together, okay? It's Fate.
So Just like me and Beth.
Screw Fate.
Fate keeps taking me places I don't want to go.
And the more I try to get away from the weird, the weirder it gets.
Why are you always wishing that you were bored? [SIGHS] Hey, um I, uh [QUIETLY] I brought you a bag from home.
I, uh packed some clothes.
I got your foam cushion.
I want you to stay here at the lodge.
You don't need to do this.
Yeah, I do.
Look, I know you need your space, and I can respect that.
Ernie needs to respect that, too.
So you just you just don't want me staying at Ernie's.
What? No.
No.
I-I want you to heal.
[SIGHS] I just need to know there's some hope for our marriage.
Don't say anything if there is.
[SIGHS] - Scott - Please.
[INDISTINCT TALKING] So that's basically the essence of Fydro.
Fire plus water equals uh [MONOTONE] magic.
Does any of that nonsense make sense? I heard it takes more water to make a bottle of water than is in a bottle of water.
But that's not possible.
CHAMP: The market determines what's possible.
The market wants miracles, we get miracles.
Yeah, I don't know about all this, Liz.
Money's tight.
Sara just announced that she wants to stay home full-time with the baby, so it's all on me now.
Yeah, no, everyone relax, okay? This isn't gonna cost you anything.
We just need to find people below us to sell to, and we'll all make money.
Liz, there's no one below us.
[DOOR OPENS] Hey! - Hi.
- Wow.
Shamroxx reunion.
Nice! JEREMY: Oh, God.
Shamroxx.
You know, I never thought I'd miss that place.
We didn't know what we had there.
Yeah.
It really was like like a golden age.
Mm.
Oh.
[CHUCKLES] Liz trying to get you in on her pyramid scheme? LIZ: I failed miserably.
Hey, I thought you had a new job.
Yeah, fell through.
Uh, where are the coupons? - By the microwave.
- Oh.
There's still coupons? Yeah, I cut them out of the newspaper.
There's still newspapers? [CAR HORN HONKS] Yeah, it's, uh it's Beth.
She's impatient.
[CAR HORN HONKS] I-I-I-I got married! - Oh.
- Hey, we heard.
- Great.
- Congratulations.
- Thanks.
- All's well with the trailer? Yeah.
It's great.
Good.
Hey.
[OBJECTS CLATTER] Listen.
I know this is all kind of new to you, um, but I-I have some advice.
- Oh, good.
- Yeah, um Find yourself a good therapist.
I just You keep hanging on, 'cause with the right kind of support, you'll get to a place where you're really just too tired - to care about anything.
- [CAR HORN BLARING] I know that doesn't make sense, but that's why a therapist is important.
[BLARING CONTINUES] [INDISTINCT TALKING, REGISTERS BEEPING] Oh, I think I think this is gonna be fun.
Let's split up.
It'll be faster.
Oh.
Okay.
Um Well, I'll get the I'll start over [INDISTINCT TALKING OVER PA SYSTEM] Emily? Hey.
Lodge guy.
Dud.
Yeah.
Dud.
I was just thinking about you.
Really? That author you like, Tom Stone, the one who's written hundreds of those mystery adventure books L.
Marvin Metz is the author.
Tom Stone is the secret agent.
Actually, there is, as of now, 24 volumes in the "Europa Nights" series.
And, um, I'm sorry.
I'm being extremely annoying.
- [LAUGHS] - You're right.
You are.
It's awful.
But you should still know that L.
Marvin Metz is doing a book signing at Books tomorrow.
- No way! - [LAUGHS] - I know.
- No way.
Wow, I can't believe you remembered that I liked him.
Dud.
You're still in Produce? Th-This is Beth.
Uh, she's my wife.
- Oh! - And we just got married.
Congratulations.
That's amazing.
It is amazing.
I should go.
Nice to meet you, Beth.
Who's that breadstick? She works at the library.
Hm.
These are the wrong pears.
[NAIL GUN WHIRRING, FIRING] Excuse me! - I'm working right now.
- [WHIRRING STOPS] What are you doing? Connie's gonna stay here awhile.
So the place needs to be cleaned and renovated.
New floors, molding, fresh coat of paint.
Why isn't she staying at your place? [NAIL GUN THUDS] [SIGHS] Big Ben tells me you never reported the robbery at your shop.
Well, I'm just saying, I've been hearing about this new gang, the Willow Street Knife Boys.
Could look into that if you w ERNIE: This is so weird.
Look at him.
This is exactly what I imagine when I think of a genius writer.
It's like if Shakespeare came to Long Beach.
What happened? Uh, the author had a, uh a freak-out, and, uh, yeah, took off.
It was insane.
We got it on the security camera.
You want to see? [CHUCKLES] [MUMBLES INDISTINCTLY] One minute he was talking about "Operation Oslo," somebody asked him a question, he took a sip of water, and then he just took off full speed at the front door, and, uh, broke the glass with his head and kept going.
He used his head? It's like something Tom Stone would do.
Yeah.
Well, that was disappointing.
But, uh, I'm still up for doing some more cultural events around town.
It's just weird.
Yeah.
Yeah, I know.
I know you're trying to avoid that kind of thing right now.
I think that's one of the gift basket guys.
No, that guy just works at the bookstore.
Yeah, no.
Hey! You worked with Captain.
I needed money.
He let us keep those suits, told us what to say.
It was all theatre.
Then tell me who ended up with the Orbis land.
Who was behind it all? Who did you work for? We worked for a guy who worked for a guy.
It goes way up.
Well, what what's underneath Orbis? Look, I'm a grad student.
I work at Books for extra money.
I don't know any more about it.
I stuck my neck out because of you.
I looked like a fool.
You ruined lives.
Sorry you guys got caught up in it.
London must be incredible.
It's made you finally care about all the stuff I care about.
- Hey, I always cared.
- Well I took minutes at the meetings.
I put out the newsletter.
Once.
No, it's great.
You're starting to see the alchemical truths that Merrill dedicated his life to.
Hold on.
I didn't say I believe any of it.
There's a historical record, but everything else, that Merrill completed the magnum opus, made gold, found the elixir of life and became immortal.
It's an endless catalogue of bullshit.
And yet, you are wearing a blindfold.
[LAUGHS] The point is, I'm enjoying the bullshit.
No, I get it.
It's like the idea of the True Lodge.
The rumor of a lodge within a lodge.
- It's ridiculous.
- [CHUCKLING] I know.
It's a dumb rumor that's led people astray.
You know, I think that by the "True Lodge," that that Merrill is just describing that place all alchemists are trying to reach.
You do the work, you pass through the golden door, and you'll end up in that place where all circles vanish.
And you're knocking on the golden door? I am.
Yes.
I'm so close.
I just need to get Scott off my ass.
Can you help with that? No.
I'm trying to avoid conflict at the moment.
Fair enough.
How long are you gonna wear that thing? The specialist said I'd know when to take it off.
LIZ: Ugh.
Yep, my tire is shredded.
I can't tell if this is a good omen or a bad omen.
I'm pretty sure it's a non-omen.
You better hope not, considering how crappy your downline is looking.
It's hard selling to friends, okay? You're helping them.
How many times do I have to say that? I have friends all over, like the ladies we're seeing today.
I've known a couple of them since high school.
- Mm.
- I mean, we went to high school together, and they're listed on the alumni page.
So fair game.
If we get over there in time.
We're okay.
I'm gonna call AAA.
AAA.
What are you, some kind of princess? Well, historically, I've had a lot of car problems.
Runs in my family.
AAA is the best deal on Earth.
I love those guys.
They should wear capes.
Are you telling me you don't know how to change a tire? What about air filters? You never even changed an air filter? Nope.
Radiator fluid? No, I'm not a mechanic, okay? Well, you better learn.
I taught myself to fix everything.
I got tired of getting screwed by mechanics.
Voilà.
Magnum what? Uh, opus.
Yeah.
It's, uh It's, like, um you know, it's it's it's very hard to explain.
What is that terrible smell? It's me and some of my distillations.
It's all one thing now.
Is there a bathroom nearby? I'm feeling really nauseous.
Yeah, just r-right off the hall.
To the Oh.
Well done.
- She's lovely.
- Yeah.
That's Thanks, Blaise.
Thanks.
You You okay? Yeah.
Yeah.
[LAUGHS] Hey, uh Hey, Blaise, um do you have any more of those elixirs or bongs or whatever? 'Cause, um my leg's really starting to hurt.
Sorry, I'm a little behind.
Been real busy.
I don't have my apprentice.
Yeah.
Yeah, I know.
Um, about about that.
I got a lot on my plate right now.
And, um I-I don't think I have time to be your apprentice anymore.
Oh! Yeah.
[NAIL GUN FIRING] Hey, Scott, come on, man.
You got to give Blaise his space.
Connie needs it more.
Connie is never coming back to you no matter where you put her! Deal with it so the rest of us don't have to! [SLAM] [BREATHING HEAVILY] That's it.
Get out.
Get out! You represent everything that's wrong with this place! Oh, come on.
What are you gonna do? Huh? You gonna cast a spell on me? DUD: Blaise, Blaise, Blaise! - Hey, hey! - Let's not do that! Huh? You don't have to do that! I [NAIL GUN FIRES] - [NAIL GUN FIRES] - Shut up! Stop it! No, Blaise, stop! Just Ow! Son of a bitch! Son of a bitch! You've lost it, Blaise! I've lost nothing! I'm the only one who can see! Ernie, run! Blaise has lost his mind! - [NAIL GUN FIRES] - Ow! DUD: Blaise! Wait, wait, wait! [BABBLES INCOHERENTLY] It's okay.
It's okay, man.
Just Just relax, okay? Relax.
It's It's over.
- There you go.
Breathe.
- [EXHALES DEEPLY] What is going on? [NAIL GUN THUDS, FIRES] I'm so sorry.
Forgive me.
[DOOR LOCKS] Okay.
MAN: Hey, hey.
Long time, no see.
Hey, good to see you.
Well, I'd say crucifixion is grounds for divorce.
Well, you know, it wasn't a crucifixion.
It was an accident.
- What? - Okay? Yeah.
Plus, Beth, she's doing totally fine.
You know, it was it was really emotional when Tim showed up at the hospital.
Yeah, everyone was in tears.
Even me.
I'm happy for 'em.
Yeah.
You know, I kind of feel like in some weird, terrible, bloody way, I brought them back together.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
And look on the bright side you are now a divorced man at the horse track.
- Among your own people.
- [EXHALES SHARPLY] You know, there are moments that I liked being married.
Like Like it was something that I wanted to do.
But it was all scrambled and the people were wrong.
It was It was like when you're in a dream and you're having sex with somebody that you really like and and you want to be with, and all of a sudden, they turn into a coat rack or a goose, and then you're falling off a cliff.
When you land, you're screaming, you wake up, and you you know what I mean? - Yeah.
- Yeah.
Aw, thanks, Lenore.
I'm a generous crocodile.
[LAUGHS] Don't worry.
When Estrella y Mar wins, all will be forgiven.
- Should we go to the bleachers? - No.
I'm actually banned from sitting track side.
Long story.
Okay! To victory! [GLASSES CLINK] [BELL RINGS, INDISTINCT SHOUTING] MAN: And they're waving.
And they're off! [LAUGHS] Come on, Estrella y Mar.
Make us love you! Hi.
I hope you don't mind me saying, you have beautiful skin.
Wow, thanks.
Let's talk after the races.
I have a couple of products that will help you maintain your game.
Come on, Lenore.
Cool it.
Let's enjoy the race.
Did you just tell me to cool it? What? Hey, they're turning the corner.
Do you think the world just hands you what you want? I've never been handed a thing in my life.
I've had to go get it every day of my life.
What the hell are you talking about? Do you think I'm going to stand here and let you judge me? Calm down, Lenore.
Jesus.
I shouldn't be surprised.
I got the same treatment from your dad when he finally broke it off.
What? You You said you broke it off.
I lied.
Bill cut me loose.
He said I was "too much.
" Those were his words.
The one guy I wanted to settle down with.
And I was too much.
I-I could see it all coming home to him, holding his kids in my arms.
I wanted those things.
But your dad said no.
I wasn't good enough for the Dudleys! [FLATLY] Oh.
We won.
But it looks like one of the horses took a bad fall.
And now here I am left with the dregs.
Hanging out with his screwed-up daughter who's so desperate for a mother, she can't see straight.
Well, I got news for you.
That ship sailed a long time ago.
I'm not your goddamn mother! Wh Well, thank God.
Dad saw it.
Lenore, you're you're a hustler.
That is all you are.
You use people.
You don't care about anyone! If you knew what I had to do all these years to survive, to make a life of my own.
If you knew, you would never judge me.
Wise up, Liz.
You think you've been through hell? You haven't even started yet! [BREATHING HEAVILY] - Here we go.
- Huh? They're bringing out a white tent.
What does that mean? It means the horse broke its leg.
They're going to shoot it.
[SNIFFLES] [CRIES] Hey.
[CRYING] Lenore told me that Mom used to swim in the ocean at night.
Can you believe that? Swimming in the ocean at night is the scariest thing I can possibly imagine.
Yeah.
No, I think Mom loved it.
[GLORIA'S "BEAM ME UP" PLAYS] Ah, beam me up inside I aim for a new world Hurry up, my mind is taking a new turn And keep it so high My body, it can burn Reaching up my skies I would never go back down [VOCALIZING] Ah, beam me up inside I aim for a new world Hurry up, my mind is taking a new turn Keep it up so high My body, it can burn [EXHALES SHARPLY] [WOOD CREAKS] MAN: Well, what makes a peanut a legume? I don't know, but y'all gonna have to clean this up.
Hey.
Okay.
Don't worry.
Everyone's paid for.
Well, I've got a Blaise update.
Finally found the key to the Sentinel Suite.
Son of a bitch sealed himself in.
DUD: Blaise, you okay? We got to get in there.

Wait a minute.
He's gone.

Blaise Blaise cracked the diary.
