Longmire s05e07 Episode Script

From This Day Forward

What are you doing over there? You look like a frat boy.
I'm installing a security system.
Somebody tries to come through the door, they knock the cans over.
I just want you to feel safe.
- I do.
- You sure? Look, what happened with Tamar It It was It was a lot, and I don't think that we should try to pretend it didn't happen or anything, but I-I think we also both know that she's not gonna come back.
But I've poked some other hornets' nests over the years.
You can't be too careful.
But, uh, well, if you're okay, maybe it's time to, you know, get back on the horse.
Um Not that you're the horse in, um, that particular metaphor or that, um, I'm going to get on - Okay, okay.
- Yeah.
It's okay, cowboy.
Um, seeing as how you've installed a security system for me and all, um, maybe it's time we should just Wait.
I'm back.
Come here.
Oh! Are you okay? Yup.
There's something about this room that kind of kills the mood.
You know what I used to do when I was a teenager? This is silly.
I mean, it's beautiful, and it's very sweet, but Wait.
What What are you doing? A cassette? - A cassette tape? - Yeah.
Oh, you just got all the girls, didn't you? Wow.
I'll take my coat off.
- Here, um - Pull that off.
I got it.
Okay, just Okay, there we go.
Oh! Sh Okay.
Are you okay there? Okay.
Oh, wait.
I think I hit the gear shift.
It's not the gear shift.
If I try to Oh, okay.
- Ow.
Okay, okay.
- Uh-oh.
Don't say that.
That doesn't sound good.
Walt, you're taking my I can't get over the wheel.
I remember this being easier.
- Asha? - Shit! Hi, Miss Longmire.
So, did you give J.
the restraining order? I did.
How, uh, did he take it? I gave it to him at work, so he was, you know, reserved.
Asha, have you been sleeping here? Well, you didn't tell me where I was supposed to go.
Oh, Asha, I'm I'm so sorry.
I just assumed you'd stay with family or friends.
But J.
knows where they all live.
He'd come and find me.
He's not supposed to.
That's why we gave him the restraining order.
knows that if he tries anything, even just coming to see you, he can be arrested.
You think that'll stop him? Okay, um, why don't you come inside? We'll get you something to eat.
You can rest a little until we figure something out.
Do you have a suitcase or? No, I I didn't bring anything, except what I'm wearing.
It's gonna be okay.
Okay, Asha? I'll stop by your place later and pick up some of your things while J.
's at work.
Sheriff's department.
You guys called? Okay, first things first, if it is underneath him or her, we get it.
Hey, we should pay him a finders fee for his help.
- You know, that just seems right.
- Okay, fine, but we solved it.
I need you to agree to that, Sheriff.
- I understand you found something.
- Well, we're hoping we found something.
We definitely found someone.
He's dead.
Or she.
Where? You found a dead body up in that tree? - No, down in that tree.
- It's hollow.
- Show him the video.
- Yeah.
Hold on.
Hold on.
You two seem happy about this.
That's because if there's a body in there, then we're definitely right.
- About what? - Anson Hamilton's treasure.
- You heard about that, right? - Nope.
So, this rich guy in Missouri Yeah, he buried a treasure, then he wrote a poem full of of of clues about where he buried it, okay, and then put that poem on the Internet.
You have that poem? Oh, we have the whole damn thing memorized.
The key couplet reads, "To the Absarokas, past hill and hollow, search for a place no man can follow.
" This is Absaroka County.
That tree is definitely a hollow where no man can follow.
Okay, here it is.
So, we climbed up and we dropped a GoPro down, and this is what we saw.
You see that hair? That's human hair.
That's got to be a human head.
This guy must have solved the poem before us, and he went down to get the treasure and couldn't get out.
So, how you gonna get him out, Sheriff? Stopped by that new bagel place.
Finally a bit of civilization here.
Did you want lox on yours? No, thanks.
So, what happened? Someone got stuck exploring the tree? - Let's go see.
- Hey, is there anything else under him? - I'm going up.
- No, you're not.
Back up.
Let us do our job.
Whoever this is, been in there a while.
Practically a mummy.
How long ago was that poem published? About three years ago.
Well, if this guy was looking for the treasure, wouldn't there be some old ropes? How else could he have gotten in? Maybe he was working with a partner.
Once the partner got the treasure, he abandoned him.
How does anybody know that that tree's hollow to begin with? Well, we talked to some guys at the Forest Service, one of those hotshot firefighters.
Tom, don't give away our secrets.
Got something else here.
Just a big canvas bag.
He was probably gonna put the treasure in it.
- Anything else in there? - No, that's it.
Look again! Okay, so there's no treasure, no wallet on the body.
I guess the only way to I.
someone that's this dead is gonna be dental records? Maybe there's another way.
Is that a tattoo? Does it say something? "Tizz.
" What's that mean? It means I know who to talk to.
Uh, hello, uh, Ms.
Longmire? This is J.
I need you to call me.
I love Asha.
And I miss her so much.
And I want to know what I got to do to get you to rip up that court order.
So call me, please.
And tell Asha I'm sorry.
This is one long driveway.
These people must be loaded.
You okay? Didn't sleep much last night.
You stressed about the civil suit? No.
No, that's going away.
I decided to settle the case.
So unlike you.
Well, uh, that way, neither of us has to worry about all that stuff in your deposition coming out.
So, um, you know this Tizz well? Not well.
I met her once seven years ago.
She must have made quite the impression.
Well, her father had just died.
That kind of thing sticks with you.
No, thank you, Mrs.
I'm, uh, feeling a little queasy.
Yeah, me, too.
No offense, Sheriff, but I just have bad associations with you showing up here.
I understand.
So, what can we help you with? I have some questions about your nickname Tizz.
- Um, okay.
- Where did it come from? I got it in college.
There were lots of Elizabeths.
Uh, one of my roommates just started calling me "Tizz" to set me apart.
- It stuck.
- Anybody ever get a tattoo of your name? Why are you asking me about this? So, you do know someone with a tattoo? My husband.
What happened? Did Tony do something? Tony's your husband? - Yes.
- No.
Not anymore, that little shit.
Mom, please.
So you're divorced? - No, separated.
- Well, that's a technicality.
Tony abandoned her two years ago out of the blue without leaving a note or anything.
That's not true.
He wrote.
Months later.
When's the last time you heard from Tony? Four months ago.
He's been living in Colorado uh, Pagosa Springs.
He's a He's a river rafting guide.
Prince Charming wrote to say that he had met someone else, that he's moved on.
So, uh, where exactly did Tony get your name tattooed? Why are you asking me this? What's happened? No.
I'm so sorry, Tizz.
Crandall, I'm really sorry to be the bearer of bad news again.
You know, I couldn't say this in front of my daughter, but frankly, we're all better off with Tony Kaufman gone.
So you were not a fan.
Did other people feel that way? About Tony? Everybody loved Tony.
He was the life of the party until anything went the least bit wrong, and then he'd just disappear.
Did he ever mention a treasure hunt? Somebody hid a treasure out in the wilderness.
I guess people are out there looking for it.
I wouldn't be surprised if he went after it.
The promise of easy money was just the kind of thing he'd get excited about.
Your daughter said she got a letter from him four months ago.
Did you ever hear from him? I tried calling him a couple of times, you know, to give him a piece of my mind.
He never answered.
Never called back.
Do you know if your daughter still has that letter that Tony sent? It might help shed some light on this.
I shredded it for her own good.
Two years, and she's still mooning over him.
Is A-Asha with you? Um, no.
She's not.
- But you got my message.
- Uh, yes, I did.
So, are you gonna take back that restraining order? It doesn't work like that, J.
I know.
Look, I know I screwed up.
And I want I want to make things right.
Can you please help me? Could I use your bathroom first? Yeah, sure.
Come on in.
Bathroom's that way.
Could I also bother you for a glass of water? - Yeah.
- Thanks.
Here's your water.
Oh, yeah.
Thank you.
See? I'm not such a bad guy.
, I could tell from your message that you don't really appreciate the seriousness of this protective order.
It's very important for both of your sakes that you do not try and contact Asha right now.
All right, so, what do I have to do to prove I'm not a bad guy? I mean, s-should I write a letter? That's a good idea, but this is gonna take time.
How long? I don't know.
Thank you.
Are you leaving? You just got here.
What Why'd you really come? I got your message, and I wanted to be very clear with you what you can and cannot do legally.
Hey, just tell me.
Where is she? Where is my wife? I'm sorry, J.
I cannot tell you that.
Shit! Tony Kaufman went to the University of Colorado in Boulder, but he never graduated.
Both parents deceased, uh, shortly after.
He moved to Durant five years ago to guide for Powder River Rafting.
Married Tizz Crandall four years ago, moved back to Colorado two years ago.
A couple of speeding tickets.
One DUI.
You find his employer down there? I've been reaching out to all the rafting operations near Pagosa Springs, but nothing yet.
Okay, uh, Ruby will get you some traveling money from petty cash.
Really? You want me to go there? It's not Hawaii, Ferg.
It's Colorado.
Just for a night or two.
Unless you don't want to go.
No, no, no.
I'll go.
Whatever you need, Sheriff.
You should probably bring this.
Hey, since Ferg's gonna be in Colorado, do you think you and I should go check out Tony's last place of employment here? What is it Powder River Rafting? Uh, you go ahead.
I'm gonna follow up on the autopsy report and read some poetry.
If the clue to the treasure is here, maybe the clue to his death is here, too.
Hey, are you Spence? Yeah.
Your boss said I should talk to you.
What did I do? He said that you were friends with Tony Kaufman.
Well, I was.
- When's the last time you talked to him? - In person? A couple of years ago, right before he blew town.
Since then, total radio silence, one Facebook post on my birthday about a month ago, but that's it.
- Any idea why he left? - Yeah, I just figured - his wife sent him packing.
- And why would she do that? - 'Cause she finally caught him.
- Doing what? You mean, "Doing who?" Look, this job is only about 50% keeping people from drowning in the river.
The other 50% is pretty much about partying and, um, whatnot.
So, his, uh his wife caught him, uh, partaking in a little bit of "whatnot"? She knew he was an operator.
- Are you okay? - Yeah.
Um, how did she know that he was an operator? How do you think those two met in the first place? He targeted her on a two-night trip on the Green River down in Utah.
You really don't look good.
- Do you want to sit down? - Yeah.
You were saying? Uh, anyway, I always thought Tizz deserved better.
Tony was fun to hang with, but hardly marriage material.
If this guy was such a partier, why did he get married in the first place? Tizz is great.
She was really into him.
And she was loaded.
Okay, so, if his wife had kicked him out, he would have been strapped for cash? - Yeah.
- But do you think that he would have, uh, gone searching for Anson Hamilton's treasure? Well, if he did, he didn't tell me about it.
Uh, okay.
I'm gonna go.
Thank you.
I'm sorry.
Um It was some bad lox.
Don't go to that new bagel place.
You're under arrest, Ms.
Geez, you scared the Ohh, you scared the heck out of me.
I'm sorry, ma'am, but, uh, I'm afraid I'm gonna have to ask you to come with me to Colorado.
What are you talking about? Well, it turns out I made a real impression on Walt lifting that fingerprint off my badge, so he rewarded me by sending me on a little business trip.
I thought maybe we could mix in a little pleasure.
What part of Colorado? Pagosa Springs.
Oh, it's the Paris of the Southwest.
How's the poetry reading going? Well, as poetry, it's, uh It's amateurish, but, um, as a puzzle, it's interesting.
I'm having a hard time making sense of some of it, though, so I'm having Ruby track down those two treasure hunters.
- Are you all right? - Yeah.
So, how about you? What did you learn? Tony Kaufman is definitely a gold digger.
So you think he was searching for the Anson Hamilton treasure, too? Maybe.
But he was definitely the other kind of gold digger conniving asshole who married Tizz for her money.
Hardly matches the picture that Tizz painted of him.
Yeah, I think she was putting on an act.
One of Tony's old friends from the rafting company thought she might have kicked him out for cheating on her.
What? Doc Weston called.
Said the cause of death was several stab wounds to the gut and chest.
- That's brutal.
- Yeah.
Seems like we might be dealing with a crime of passion.
Seems like it, but there's still the question of how she could have gotten him into that tree.
Doc Weston have any sense of how long the body had been in there? Well, under the circumstances, it's hard to be specific, but, um, likely more than a year.
Didn't Tizz just get a letter from Tony four months ago? And his friend from the rafting company got a birthday post last month.
- How does that happen? - I don't know.
I couldn't reach either one of those treasure hunters, but did a little research, and they are quite the odd couple.
Tom Fuller unemployed but he was adjunct professor of modern poetry.
And the other guy, Jim Mackey He's a bail bondsman.
- This is Jim's rap sheet? - Mm-hmm.
Assaults in three states and a felony conviction in Florida.
"Bounty hunter suspected in murder of fugitive.
" Yeah, Jim was never even charged for that one.
But it was all over the papers in Colorado two years ago.
- Colorado? - Mm-hmm.
Is he still a bail bondsman? Lost his license three times, three different states.
How does a guy like that end up partnered with a lit major in the middle of Wyoming? I'd like to know that, too.
If they went back out looking for another hollow tree, they probably contacted the Forest Service again.
We need to get over there, see if they can help us locate the odd couple.
Walt, she's not going anywhere but home.
Vic, you don't look well, sweetie.
I'm fine.
I-It's just the new bagel place.
I've never heard of a bagel making someone sick.
- No, it was the lox.
- Oh.
I should have known you don't order lox in the middle of Wyoming.
- Yeah.
- Ruby's right.
You head home.
I'll talk to those, uh, Forest Service firefighters.
But after you call your lawyer.
Probably just wants me to sign the settlement papers.
That can wait.
I'll call him later.
Asha, where are you going? - Home.
- No, you can't.
- Who are you? - She's my cousin.
- I called her to come get me.
- Asha, I'm so sorry.
I cannot let you do this.
I heard J.
on your answering machine.
Your restraining order worked.
He He said he's sorry.
Of course he did.
You believe him? I Yeah.
Of course.
He's my husband.
He's also drunk, and he's angry.
No, that was before.
On his message, he sounded so Asha, I was just there.
See? I got you some of your things.
There were vodka bottles that weren't there yesterday.
And he broke something when I left.
Is that the kind of house you want to go back to right now? - I can't stay here forever.
- No one said forever.
But you and I both know what'll happen if you go back there right now.
Hi, there.
Which one of you is in charge here? I didn't do nothing.
Sheriff Longmire.
Nice to meet you.
All right, gentlemen.
Just get another run at it.
- New recruits? - Yes, sir.
Just a couple weeks ago, they were banging out in East L.
- That hard to find rangers? - Nah.
They're just a part of a program to get kids out of their neighborhood, you know, gang area, get them out here doing something useful, train them to be hotshots, show them a different path.
Does it work? It did for me.
So, uh, what can I help you with, Sheriff? Well, actually, I was wondering if you guys have been contacted by any, uh, treasure hunters.
Hey, boss.
Sheriff's asking about some treasure hunters.
You talking about that damned Anson Hamilton poem? I am.
Yeah, "To the Absarokas, past hill and hollow.
" Probably had 30 or 40 people calling and asking about that poem in the last couple years.
- Yep.
- Twice as many so far this year.
I guess it's gone viral.
Do you keep a record of these callers? No, it's only just dawned on us that it's a thing.
I mean, most people just call.
Every now and then, we'll get the, uh, more determined folks that show up in person, asking about hollow trees.
You got to be careful with them hollow trees.
People don't know what they're doing, they can be dangerous.
They're not all filled with elves, you know? These guys come by? Yeah, they were in a few days ago, and they had a fair amount of climbing experience, so I told them about the same eight trees I tell everyone about.
The one guy was cool, but this other guy, Jim, kind of got up in my grill.
He was sure I was holding out on him.
Have they called or been back in the last 24 hours? No.
What about him? Has he come about the treasure? That would be a year or two back.
Yeah, I recognize that guy.
His name's Tony Kaufman.
That's Tizz's ex.
What an asshole.
- So you do know him.
- Well, I know Tizz.
They're the ones who threw that party after the Black Knoll Fire.
Oh, yeah, that's right.
A while back.
They were cool peoples, yeah.
Yeah, Tizz's mom's house was in the evacuation zone.
It was pretty much rich people's houses.
And, uh, they were pretty happy when we got that fire contained.
So they threw a thank-you party.
Was Tony there? Mm.
I don't know.
Maybe? Well, I'm confused.
Uh, you don't seem to know him very well, but you have a pretty strong opinion about him.
I heard how he cheated on Tizz.
W-Why you asking about all this stuff? Something happen to Tony or them treasure hunters? Well, you could say that.
Um, they found Tony's body in a hollow tree.
- What? - Huh.
Kind of makes you believe in karma.
Hi, Tizz.
You mind if I come in? No, of course.
Thank you.
Your mom's guest house is bigger than my house.
How long you lived here? Um, Tony and I moved in when we got married.
Have you figured out what happened to him yet? Not yet.
I'm working on it.
Is that Grand Teton? South Teton.
We were gonna do the Grand the next summer.
So, what brings you here? You can't possibly have more bad news.
No, but, uh, I got to ask you some questions that aren't gonna be too much fun.
Were you aware that your husband might have been unfaithful? Yes.
Sheriff, I knew who I was marrying, but I loved him anyway, no matter what.
I still do.
Well, your mom doesn't seem to share that affection for Tony.
Although I'm not sure that was ever really about Tony.
There's part of me that thinks maybe she was jealous of me.
I know it sounds awful, but after she lost my dad, she just couldn't stand the thought of me having someone when she didn't.
So when I married Tony, she just made things difficult for us.
Can you be more specific? Well, she was just really judgmental.
Tony couldn't stand her.
He wanted to move out, but he couldn't really afford another place.
One night, things got so bad he threatened to file for divorce.
Took me two days to talk him out of it.
So he left two years ago.
Was there really a letter four months ago? Yeah.
I swear.
I got it.
I still remember the return address P.
Box 3165 Pagosa Springs, Colorado.
Did you write back? Don't tell my mom, but, um, I actually drove down there.
His number's unlisted, but I got a family friend to track down his street address.
I waited outside his little house, waiting to see him.
I waited for hours.
But in the middle of the night, I started to feel like a stalker.
I got so embarrassed, I just I drove back.
I drove all night.
Can you give me that address for his house? Yeah, I have it memorized.
You know, since you came by earlier, I actually feel better.
Less restless.
When you love someone as much as I loved Tony, even when they're gone, you can't help thinking they're gonna walk through the door.
At least now I know he can't.
Hey, Asha.
I brought dinner.
Thank you, Miss Longmire.
Well, don't thank me because I don't know if I have any silverware.
, you can't you can't be here.
Hey, Ms.
Longmire, I'm I'm sorry for showing up unannounced like this, but I have to talk to Asha.
How did you even know she was here? Her cousin told me.
Asha, baby, come here.
I have to say something.
Baby, it's okay.
I'm I'm not gonna hurt you.
, I'm sorry, but if you don't leave, I have to call the tribal police.
Asha, you're the love of my life, and I never should have hurt you.
I'm sorry.
But I want to give you something to prove it.
Oh, J.
That's my chip from Alcoholics Anonymous my sobriety chip.
I went to a meeting this morning, and they gave me that, and I'm giving it to you.
That's my promise to you right now that I will stay sober.
No, Asha, don't.
No, this is not right.
You have to leave.
, I'm sorry.
I'm calling the police.
No! Don't! I don't want the police.
I just want things to be better.
And now they will be.
See? He's different.
Asha, A.
doesn't give you your one-year chip the first day you walk in there.
They give it to you after you've been sober for a whole year.
I don't know where he got this, but it's fake, okay? He didn't earn it, and he's lying to you.
And he's only using this to lure you back into that house, and I won't let that happen.
Why don't you mind your own damn business? You need to leave.
Not without Asha.
Okay, well, I'm dialing.
And if you're still here when they pick up, I'll report you and they'll arrest you and you'll go to jail.
But if you leave now, I'll hang up.
I'll show you.
I'm gonna stay sober.
I'll show you both.
It's okay.
It's over.
I know we meant to connect last night, so, uh, I just wanted to apologize.
N-No, actually, I meant to call you, so I-I'm the one who should be saying sorry.
Well, I know it's not a competition, but, uh, for the record, uh, I'm up two now.
No, you're up one cancellation, but we are even in apologies.
But I was thinking maybe, uh Maybe you would like to come over to my house tonight.
Oh, um, yeah, yeah.
Uh, right now, I got to go.
No, actually, I have to go.
Tonight then.
All right.
All right, bye.
So Tom.
Where have you been? And why haven't you been answering your phone? Jim wouldn't let me.
He's paranoid.
He doesn't want us answering any more questions about that poem.
You know you're looking in the wrong place.
What? H-How do you know that? It's right in the poem.
Read that.
"To the Absarokas past hill and hollow.
" That.
That's wrong.
That doesn't scan.
Every other line in the poem has 10 syllables.
- That's got 11.
- I know.
That's just because Anson Hamilton is a hack poet.
No, that's not it.
You're pronouncing one of the words wrong.
This county we call it Absaroka.
Northwest of here is a whole mountain range spelled the same, pronounced differently "Absorka.
" - Seriously? - Yeah.
Take a seat.
So, why are you here, Tom? Uh It's about Jim.
How long you two been friends? We're not friends.
Business partners, more like it.
I answered an ad on Craigslist.
He was looking for a poetry expert.
And you're an expert in modern poets.
Wallace Stevens, primarily.
How do you know that? Are you investigating me? What was it you needed to tell me? I'm not sure what it means, but I woke up in the middle of the night two nights ago, and Jim wasn't in the tent.
- Where was he? - I don't know.
And then I asked him about it the next morning, and he acted like I was crazy.
He said I was dreaming, but I wasn't.
You two have been traveling together for a long time.
Did Jim ever, um, carry anything odd with him? Anything large? Oh, my God.
You think he dumped that body in the tree? You know if Jim had any business partners before you? Is that who was in the tree? Oh, man.
Take it easy.
- Where's Jim right now? - I don't know.
Halfway to the Absorkas for all I know.
I like business trips.
Well, the business part of it's a bit of a bust.
I talked to 10 different white-water rafting companies, and I couldn't find one, single person who'd even heard of Tony Kaufman.
But It's all been worth it because - I found this.
- Shut up.
I love this.
You better.
That thing cost more than $12.
Somebody lives here? According to Walt, Tony Kaufman does.
I thought you said he just had a P.
box and an unlisted number.
True, but Walt has his ways.
That's so cool.
So you guys have, like, access to all kinds of secret databases? - We're not spies.
- No, I know that.
But, like, you can search other sheriff's departments' records? Well, in theory.
But, you know, everybody's on different systems.
This thing looks pretty flimsy.
You should probably stand back, Meg.
Such a badass.
I'm telling you, it feels like nobody's lived here for ever.
So there's no furniture at all? Um, well, there's a bed, side table, um - No, no, no, no.
Don't touch that.
- Hey, hey, hey.
I can't take your call, so leave a message.
Ferg, who's there with you? Um O-Okay, Walt, uh, I just want to make it clear I didn't spend a dime of department money on bringing Meg with me.
Nobody said you did.
- I probably should have told you.
- Probably.
So, uh, there's a bed, a side table, and answering machine.
- Anything else? - No.
Well, except for this tiny, little Eiffel Tower I found on the floor of the bathroom.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I-I didn't mean to scare you.
The door was open.
No, no, I am happy that it is you and not someone else.
How are you? I'm okay.
Um, do you remember a while back when my dad and Mathias were searching your apartment for that woman who was beaten by her husband? How do you know about that? Once upon a time, my dad and I used to tell each other things.
Anyway, um, was she here? Did Did you help her? - Did your father think I was lying? - No.
I-I know she wasn't here when they searched, but was she ever? Why are you asking me about this? The whole thing gave me an idea, and I know it's a lot to ask, but I am running out of options.
Enough with the preamble.
Would you mind keeping an abused woman here for a few days? The closest women's shelter is two hours away, and she wants to be safe, but she doesn't want to give up her whole life.
Henry, you know I wouldn't ask if it wasn't important.
All right.
I'm just trying to make sense of this.
You're saying that the house is in Tony Kaufman's name, but it was purchased by Tizz's mom.
Nancy Crandall bought a house for the son-in-law she apparently hated.
Maybe that's how she got rid of him.
She paid him off.
No, this does not look like the house of somebody who'd been paid off.
Like I said, it was practically empty.
Was the bed a single or a double? It was a king, actually.
What? What about that little Eiffel Tower you mentioned? Right.
Here it is.
It's a charm from a bracelet.
Holy shit.
It's just like the one Tizz's mom was wearing.
Do you think she was having an affair with her son-in-law? Tizz did say that she thought her mom was jealous of her.
He was as bad of a philandering gold-digger as everybody says he was.
So, what do you think happened? He slept with Mrs.
Crandall, then he threatened to tell Tizz, so she killed him to keep him quiet? Or Tizz caught him in the act and lost it.
I mean, she's been to that cabin.
She knows where it is.
And she's a climber, so she could have gotten up that tree.
Still, to get a dead body up there, either one of them would have needed help.
Let's get a list of all the hotshots that helped in the Black Knoll Fire.
Uh, see which of them went to the party that Tizz and her mom threw for them.
Uh, Tizz and I talked before about Tony's extramarital affairs, but, uh, we didn't get into any names.
I'd really rather not dredge all that up.
I think it may be important.
Now, I never told you about the circumstances of Tony's death.
It wasn't obvious at first.
We thought maybe he died accidentally looking for that treasure.
But after I'd studied that poem, I realized that nobody from Absaroka would really think the treasure was here.
And then, of course, there were the autopsy results, which told a different story Tony was stabbed.
- Oh, my God.
- In my experience, that's often a sign of a crime of passion.
You think one of his flings murdered him? Well, I'd like to know about who Tony was sleeping with.
More specifically, I'd like to know if it was you, Mrs.
What?! You can't be serious! No, mom hated Tony.
Then why did she buy him that house in Colorado? What? We found this down there in Tony's bathroom.
So, Mrs.
Crandall, were you having an affair with him? An affair?! I couldn't stand him! You really did hate Tony, didn't you? So then if you weren't sleeping with him, I guess you were just pretending to be him, sending letters to Tizz, posting on his old friend's Facebook page, collecting his mail, his phone calls from time to time, keeping a dead man alive just to torture your daughter.
Tizz, I I was trying to protect her from that deadbeat, opportunistic husband.
We can't protect our children from their mistakes.
We have to let them face the consequences.
Mom is this true? - You have to understand - I don't.
I don't understand.
- You knew that he was dead? - She killed him.
- No! - She stabbed him.
And then she stuffed his body in a hollow tree.
That's not true! I did not! Then you just hired somebody to do it.
Tizz, you didn't know what Tony was really like.
Yes, I did.
And I still loved him.
But he didn't love you.
He was going to divorce you.
Because of you! - Because you were so horrible to him! - No.
He was going to divorce you for your money.
He had a lawyer.
He came here, and he said right to my face that he was going after your inheritance.
I couldn't let him do that to you, to to us.
So, who was it, Mrs.
Crandall? Who did you hire? I didn't tell you to rest.
Let's go.
Come on.
Knees up.
Knees up.
Knees up.
Hey, Sheriff.
Are you here about that, uh, treasure hunter? - What was his name, uh, Jim? - Whoo.
He thought there was still a treasure in that tree, and he went in.
Then his rope broke, he got stuck in there, he had to use his cell phone to call us to go get him out.
That's not why I'm here.
She tell you? Yup.
T-That isn't me anymore, Sheriff.
That's the last time I ever hurt anyone.
I know.
Good news.
I got you a place to stay, at least for a night or two until we figure something else out a little more long-term.
Is it on the Res? No.
It's not far, though.
You know the Red Pony? There's an apartment upstairs.
It's very private.
If you grab your things, I'll take you over.
Come on in.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
Uh, perfect timing.
I was just pouring us a glass of wine.
- Here you go.
- Thank you.
You don't drink wine, do you? - Sure I do.
- You know, I should have bought some beer.
I'm so sorry.
I just This is perfect.
Let me take, um Let me take your your hat, and, um, I'll put that ov over here, and then if you want to take off your coat, I'll hang it up.
Ohh! Uh - Oh.
- I'm sorry.
Um No, no, no, no, no.
That's okay.
I have towels.
It's right here.
- Let me do it.
- Ah, here.
Just grab that.
And I'll grab some of these.
It's fine.
I've got it.
I did a good job.
What's so funny? No I Nothing.
I just thought that, you know, we would be so much more comfortable here, and that's already so much worse.
Well, maybe if somebody busted in and started shooting up the place, that would break the tension.
Getting shot at the first time you you kiss a girl is a pretty good excuse for, um, being uncomfortable the second time.
But that's not really it.
Is it? No.
Um, you're gonna think this is corny.
Try me.
My wife and I We waited.
How long? Well, till we were married.
I don't think that's corny.
Would you be all right if we just watch a movie tonight? Well, what made you think that I invited you over here for anything else? You were trying to get me drunk.
You think you're safe in there?! Shit.
- You think you're safe in there?! - Go in the kitchen, and close the door.
- I thought we were - Please, Asha, just do it! You think you can hide from me?! Hey! Open the goddamn door! Oh, no, no, no, no, no! Don't you run away from me.
Don't you run away from me! Open the door! - Call 9-1-1.
- Ohh! - What was that? - The front door.
What are you doing with that gun? Where's the loading gate? Where's the loading gate? Asha, come out, come out wherever you are.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
Nobody's picking up.
What do we do? Dial again.
, if you leave now, I won't call the police.
- Anything? - No.
Call my dad.
Call the sheriff.
- Call the sheriff's office.
- The phone's dead.
Well, I'm happy to leave.
You just send my wife out here, then we'll leave together.
You know I can't do that, J.
I, please, just need you to go! J.
? Sweetie? They're gonna take you to jail.
I never wanted that.
Oh, oh, they're gonna take me to jail? That is a joke.
"From this day forward" Do you remember saying that, Asha? - I don't know.
- You don't know?! "From this day forward For better or for worse In sickness and in health To love and to cherish Till death do us part!" Aah! That was your vow, Asha! Till death do us part! - Now I guess you got to die.
- No! Aah! This is all your fault, bitch! Subtitle corrections by
