Roswell, New Mexico (2019) s03e05 Episode Script

Killing Me Softly With His Song

1 Previously on Roswell, New Mexico - No! - Stop! ISOBEL: What'd he do to you? He told me I'm a clone.
You deserve the life I came here to give you.
I've seen your X-rays.
Let me help you, Max.
Safety is a shared endeavor.
MARIA: I have these odd visions sometimes.
I think someone's getting murdered.
We need to get to that coffin.
MARIA: The Valenti coat of arms.
Oh, my God, it's Kyle.
(BOTH GRUNTING) Call an ambulance.
- (GASPING) - HEATH: You all right? (EXHALES) (INDISTINCT RADIO TRANSMISSION) PARAMEDIC: Systolic BP's 170 and rising.
Pushing 100 milligrams of lidocaine.
What happened? Heath? Hey, it's okay.
I'm here.
- (LIZ GASPING) - You passed out.
Paramedics think you went into cardiac arrest.
Ma'am, I'm gonna have to cut your dress.
No, no.
It's not my heart.
(GRUNTING) - You ready? - Mm-mm.
One two - No.
No, don't - (GRUNTS) Hang in there.
- Whoa, easy, easy.
- (GRUNTING) (BEEPING) (ELECTRICAL BUZZING) (LIZ GASPING) Liz, if it's not your heart, then what is it? (EXHALES) (GRUNTING) Tell Rosa I love her.
You know what? You tell her your damn self.
- (GRUNTS) - Evans, no.
Saving me will kill you.
(GRUNTING) I need Max Evans.
Take me back to Roswell.
Checkout's in an hour.
Feels like I'm running in circles ♪ Where do we go from here? ♪ Uh, how did I end up on your couch? Uh, well You passed out after I healed you.
Figured you'd rather wake up there than in the bedroom.
The alien stuffy was a nice touch, though.
And facing all my fears ♪ How are you even standing? (CHUCKLES) No clue.
But, I mean, this is the first time in weeks I haven't had to mainline acetone just to crawl out of bed.
That doesn't make any sense.
(KNOCKING) I-I should definitely examine you.
What the hell were you thinking, antagonizing the prime suspect of your impending murder? Look, some of the Regi-necks roughed up a worker on the Lopez farm.
All right? I went to go talk to the sheriff when Jordan and the pointy end of a railing got in the way.
Why didn't you go to Max? How was I supposed to know I'm the coffin-filler from your vision? In my vision, Alex said we were covering up a murder.
The only reason we would do that is if there was something alien to hide.
Like, um that? You didn't have that yesterday.
Ash is still in the air.
Things are lining up.
So you're benched until this handprint disappears.
Well, maybe I just got to Kyle later in your vision, and I wasn't able to save him.
Look, there's no maybe when it comes to his life.
I want to take down the Regiment just as bad as you guys do, but until this intergalactic body glitter disappears, we're just gonna have to bust out the puzzles and binge some Buffy.
Act like it's quarantine all over again.
'Cause that was so much fun the first time around.
(PHONE CHIMES) (SIGHS) You look like someone just got murdered.
(SIRENS WAILING) Knew them Lopezes would crack one day.
Says Deputy Deport 'Em without checking any facts.
Oh, we're saved.
Department sent Lieutenant Liberal to work the crime scene.
What do we know about the Lopezes besides Zeke Murphy's burnt body being in the barn? Manny and Vinnie, they raise alpacas, uh, grow sunflowers.
They sponsor a T-ball team.
They seem political.
Pot stirrers, ma'am.
- Or peaceful protestors.
- Or murderers.
Manny's got bruised knuckles that his husband claims is from a slip on a deck.
But we both know they're not great with the truth.
Manny's been living here illegally for years.
Actually, they're citizens.
Manny's family's been in New Mexico since before it was a state, but I guess every Lopez looks undocumented to you, right? Okay, the files I pulled revealed a-a long-standing feud between Zeke and the Lopezes.
Bar brawls, fence line disputes, water rights.
To me, that says motive.
The evidence is circumstantial.
Okay, but enough to bring 'em in.
- You need to arrest them, Evans.
- Ma'am? - I really - Okay, we impart order, Deputy.
Don't forget what that badge represents.
Max, this is a mistake, right? I'm sorry, guys.
Explain to me again why you're now suddenly in favor of throwing Max into the lion's den? Jones showed us his memories.
He fought for Max like a father.
Turns out thawed-out Max really cares about him.
Yeah, but even if Jones can't lie in the mindscape, that doesn't mean he didn't slice off a memory that's gonna make him look sympathetic.
And what's your point? That our intergalactic frenemy is hiding something from us? Of course he is.
It doesn't matter.
We know for a fact he doesn't want Max dead.
Well, maybe not, but he does want something.
And we can't afford to be careless.
There is too much at stake.
I agree.
But we are running out of time and we're out of options.
After what Max pulled last night with Kyle You're afraid that it's gonna be soon.
- Aren't you? - (SIGHS) We know how much this takes out of him.
I made myself a promise this morning, Iz.
I'm gonna drink less tequila, and I'm gonna take care of the people who matter.
But give me the day, all right? Let me see what I can find out.
What am I supposed to do? I don't know, Michael.
Find someone else to take care of.
(SIGHS) (QUIET CHATTER) Updating the specials? We're closed for the day.
Gregory and Bert are helping me organize a march for the Lopezes.
I could use your artistic eye on this.
¿Qué piensas? "Alien and proud.
" Okay, Liz is gonna freak out when she hears that she missed this.
Before my visa, when I had no voice, people spoke out for me.
Now, I have a voice, and it's my job as an American to use it.
Yeah, but I mean, papi, you're at, like, the one-yard line of citizenship.
What if this jeopardizes your status? The important things are worth fighting for.
You taught me that.
Rosa loved raging against the machine, but Rosalinda cannot afford that kind of attention.
I understand.
But you cannot be happy if you can't be yourself.
(DOOR OPENS) Hey, stranger.
It's good to see you.
With, um Kyle.
Oh, no, I'm just babysitting.
Can we at least call it man-sitting? Greg, what's going on here? Ah, a little Roswell activism.
The Lopezes are being framed.
So we want the sheriff to know that we don't approve.
Grab a seat.
Do not give me that look, Valenti.
We agreed to Shatner Shakes and seminal angsty television shows.
And my family protected this community for a hundred years.
I can't just turn my back on them.
Well, I doubt either of your parents would have wanted you dead.
Uh, I'm a grown man.
Okay? If I'm going down, it's got to be swinging.
Kevlar looks good on you.
BERT (OVER BULLHORN): Look, people of color are being victimized, targeted and ignored, and the sheriff's department has turned their backs on us.
- MAN: That's right.
- WOMAN: Yeah.
The Lopezes were unjustly arrested today.
And Brooke Taylor is not the voice of fairness that she claims to be.
Now, look, enough is enough.
- MAN: She's a liar.
- CROWD (CHANTING): Hey, hey, ho, ho! Sheriff Taylor has got to go! Hey, hey, ho, ho! Sheriff Taylor has got to go! Hey, hey, ho, ho Don't look surprised.
The righteous are hard to keep down.
No clue what you're talking about.
Or we could go in that station and clear up any confusion.
Sheriff's a little bit busy putting a long overdue end to the lawlessness around here.
Don't you have anywhere to be, Jordan? Yeah.
Taking in the voice of change.
Noisy bunch, aren't they? Too bad no one cares to listen.
Then we'll just have to raise up the volume.
And I'll get all my powerful friends to make sure those bastards never see the outside of a cell again.
How long have I been out? - (EXHALES) - Couple of hours.
Here, drink this.
I know I owe you an explanation.
You were having a heart attack, at least that's what I thought - until your vitals didn't add up.
- (EXHALES SHARPLY) Liz, you are simultaneously presenting symptoms of vascular degeneration and African trypanosomiasis.
You think this is a parasitic infection? I have no idea.
But I'm pretty sure that the answer to your heart problem doesn't lie in a town full of yahoos with tinfoil hats.
- (EXHALES) - Talk to me, Liz.
You can barely hold your head up.
I-It's like something is sucking the life force out of you.
I am going to explain, okay? Just not now.
(GASPS) Sure, fine.
Actually, you know what? Not fine.
At the very least, tell me what Max Evans - has to do with any of Liz, hey.
That's it.
- I'm pulling over.
- No, no, no, no.
Don't stop.
- Keep driving.
- (LOUD POP) - (HISSING) - (TIRES SQUEALING) (GASPING) Thought you might be hungry.
I don't want a damn snack.
I'm trying to help you.
Okay? I mean, this is obviously a misunderstanding.
Aren't I entitled to a phone call? Yeah, of course.
If you just explain to me what happened, then maybe I can Don't play good cop with me.
I know you're allowed to lie to get me to say whatever you want.
When have I ever lied to you? I mean, aside from, like, Thursday night poker when I'm trying to bluff you out? Look, I know Zeke roughed up one of your guys.
Okay? Let me help you.
The Regiment has been coming around here for weeks, attacking our employees, messing with our livestock.
We stood up to them, and they hung a Confederate flag on our fence.
Wait, why didn't you come to me? - Because you're a cop.
- I'm your friend.
Not in that uniform, you're not.
I said everything I need to say to that reporter yesterday.
Time's up, Evans.
Our granola murderers here just made bail.
- (INDISTINCT CHATTER) - (ROCK MUSIC PLAYING) I let you take a bathroom break, and Max tells me you bailed out the Lopezes? I can't let innocent people sit in jail when I have the means to help.
If you want to help someone, help me keep you alive.
What you just did is gonna enrage Jordan further.
- Of course he's gonna be upset, but - But nothing.
I'm a Black woman in America.
Don't you think I understand wanting to stop injustice? Don't you think I would rather be out there inciting change in our town? A vision landed in my head, and keeping you from your own funeral is on me.
You're right.
You're right, you shouldn't be babysitting me.
You should be out there.
I can tell you want to be.
Who would watch you? MICHAEL: I could.
I mean, I bet I'd make a pretty good bodyguard.
Being alien and all.
You're not afraid I'll run? (SIGHS) What kind of a white knight would run away? Hmm.
So you're here to kick the tires on my offer to heal Max.
To suss out my emotions.
Catch me in a lie.
But, of course, you can't do that with those bars between us.
Well if you have nothing to hide, that shouldn't be a problem.
Right? Well, if my motivations are to be scrutinized, I may as well enjoy this steak while you do it.
To Max.
Okay, well, I got a D-minus in high school shop class, but I'm pretty sure that the radiator hose shouldn't smell like barbecue.
(PAINED GROAN) Damn it! Yup, that's hot, it's hot.
- Wh-Why would you do that? - I don't know, Liz.
Because I'm an idiot, obviously, and I have no idea what I'm doing here.
(EXHALES) You mean driving me to my ex? (SIGHS) You do not need to be threatened by Max Evans.
We're done.
Yet somehow the cop is the answer to your heart, not the scientist.
All I can tell you is that we went through something like this before.
Okay? You asked me to trust you, and I did.
Now it's your turn.
But we still need to get you to a hospital, okay? Chugging electrolytes isn't gonna bring that fever down.
But it'll get us back on the road.
(GROANS) As soon as I MacGyver this into an intake hose.
(TAKES DEEP BREATH) If you really wanted to heal Max, why didn't you do it when you knocked him unconscious? I wanted to say goodbye to my life first.
You wanted one last day.
And tell me, what did you do with it? Well, I I read a book.
I befriended a dog.
And I saw the sun one last time.
It's the same sun as 70 years ago, but it feels different somehow.
It's hotter now.
Dried up my old fishing spot.
But the view there is spectacular.
Tell me more.
I found out that you and I have a mutual acquaintance.
Noah Bracken.
I knew him from back home.
How long were you two married? Let's let sleeping dogs lie, shall we? So, what else did you do? Well, I went to the hospital, and that's where I saw the sad state of Max's heart.
You know what's my favorite part about this new power? Hmm? When you finally get it just right there's a sort of a halo that appears around the person you're reading.
Yours is yellow.
Do you know what yellow feels like? Deceit.
So, why don't you take another bite of that steak and tell me what else you did yesterday? (CHANTING): Hey, hey, ho, ho, Sheriff Taylor has got to go! Hey, hey, ho, ho, Sheriff Taylor has got to go! Of course, Mayor Bernhardt, I'm aware of Zeke Murphy's family's investments in our city, but with all due respect, this isn't my first rodeo, and this bull isn't getting away from me.
CROWD: Hey, hey, ho, ho, Sheriff Taylor has got to go! Sheriff, the protests aren't subsiding.
Uh, maybe if you made a statement - about how we handled - Don't start with me, Evans.
(IN DISTANCE): Hey, hey, ho, ho, Sheriff Taylor has got to go! Releasing those two wasn't enough.
Those rioters out there want us disbanded, defunded and dead.
MAX: I know these people, ma'am.
This isn't them.
If anything, this is Jordan Bernhardt.
- He wants a fight.
- The mayor's son? Sheriff, the Roswell Regiment is about blue lives mattering, and, frankly, we could use their help right about now.
We are understaffed and we are clearly under fire, and we don't have the badges to keep this in check.
I'm telling you, the protestors wouldn't do this.
Why? Because they're your friends? Evans, get me the names of all the protestors with violent priors.
Call up the Regiment.
(CHANTING CONTINUES OUTSIDE) - (WHOOPING) - (HARD ROCK PLAYING) The strongest vessel inside my core ♪ In my skin ♪ In my bones ♪ It saturated since birth.
♪ BROCK: I thought you people only made burritos.
(CHUCKLES) I recognize your voice.
Your parents raised you better than this.
You don't know nothing, old man.
Papi! Hey, you stupid vatos, get out of here, okay, before I call the cops.
Use my phone.
Pretty little piñata.
Papi, are you okay? (PANTING): Yeah.
Those aliens definitely didn't come in peace.
(SIGHS HEAVILY) You think you know what you're doing, Isobel, but three days' practice does not an expert make.
Don't "young grasshopper" me.
I know what I feel coming off of you.
- I don't think you do.
- I might be inexperienced, but trust me, I'm a quick study.
And you went somewhere else that day.
You don't see me at all, do you? (EXHALES) You only see him.
Oh, he had a rotten soul I'm sure he did not do right by you at all.
This has nothing to do with Noah.
This has everything to do with Noah, because you can't see past the pain he left in your life.
That yellow that you see, that's you, Isobel.
That's what you're feeling, not me.
You're hiding something.
Are you sure about that? All I see when I look at you is fear and insecurity and distrust.
And after yesterday, I understand why.
Are you really willing to let Max die because you can't let go of your own past? Get back in the cage.
I heard you spoke with the Lopezes.
Couple of days ago I interviewed them about how they were making waves with Mayor Bernhardt.
Well, that probably won't help our cause.
You know, Vinnie and I used to throw back whiskey quite a bit.
Now he won't open up to me.
I guess I wouldn't want to talk to me either.
Most cops don't have such compassion.
What is it that keeps yours so open? I grew up watching the Valentis.
They listened to all sides.
They maintained the dignity.
You wanted to be a hero.
I just want to keep what they had going alive.
You know, they cared about everyone in Roswell.
They didn't pick and choose.
That should be the bare minimum.
But it sounds like another planet to me.
There's more of us than you think.
But definitely not enough.
So I see where these protestors are coming from.
I know why they hate us.
But when there's trouble at 3:00 a.
, they still dial 911.
But this is bigger than that.
The Wild Pony was robbed by white supremacists.
People are being harassed, followed home.
And Sheriff Taylor's looking the other way.
But it's not just her This is happening all across the country.
I could run a stop sign, and my story could turn sad at any moment.
That's the system we live in.
Yeah, well, I believe in the work I do.
But I understand there's a lot broken.
If you recognize that, how can you keep putting on that uniform? I ask myself that every day.
And every day every day I find a reason to put it on.
Do you see that? Tire tracks.
Right? Tracks on farms? The Lopezes are scraping by.
Their truck is, what, 17 years old with balding tires.
These tracks, these are defined and fresh.
They must have moved it and pinned it on the Lopezes.
(PHONE CHIMES) (DOOR OPENS) Whoa, who are you? He's with me.
Whoa, whoa, hey, hey.
- I-I'm okay, I'm okay.
- Yeah? - Yes.
- Well, you must be Max Evans.
Heath Tuchman.
I-I was there when she collapsed, then we practically broke the sound barrier to get here.
You know what? Forget I said that, Officer.
No, I appreciate it.
I'll, uh I'll take it from here.
Yeah, you know what? I think I'll stay.
Heath, can you can you find Dr.
Jane Holden? She should be able to help.
Yeah? Yeah.
I'll be back as soon as I can.
(GRUNTS) Liz, what is going on? I went into sudden cardiac arrest last night, and since then I've been bouncing between fatigue and dizziness and chills and I short-circuited a car 'cause of this.
I gave you that? But no.
Hand prints can only transfer emotions.
No, Max.
I am experiencing your heart failure.
And if the connection doesn't fade soon, it's gonna kill me.
That was Max.
He said it was the sheriff that activated the Regiment.
Well, can they do that? Oh, this country's got a long history of police collusion with local militias.
I mean, my mom tried to keep Roswell from going down that road, but Taylor is no Valenti.
Guess she's trying to protect the town from all the rioting and looting we of course were gonna do.
Well, we're not gonna fold to Roswell's racist social club.
Hmm, I agree with my man-sitter.
No, we're not gonna do that.
By now the Regiment knows it was Kyle who bailed out the Lopezes.
And add that to their newfound authority, that gives us a huge bull's-eye on Kyle's back.
So, I hate to admit it, but our only option is to take Jordan out of play.
They follow him as a leader, so take him out, the Regiment falls.
ROSA: I would really, really love to take down the bitch-ass racists who have been targeting my family for a decade.
So put me in, coach.
Rosalinda's tired of hiding.
Happy to have you both on the team.
What is the team doing? This might help.
Swiped that off one of the maggots who attacked my dad and who was stupid enough to show me his passcode.
" (PANTING) (GRUNTS) (PANTING) JONES: It dried up my old fishing spot, but the view there is spectacular.
(SNIFFLES) (LAUGHS SOFTLY) I knew Evans' magically-fixed heart was too good to be true.
MAX: Her fingers are blue.
Yeah, her oxygen levels are dropping.
Can't we boost that? It'd be like putting a Band-Aid on an amputation.
And we're sure it's the handprint? LIZ: Heath thought that my symptoms were due to a vascular infection caused by a parasite.
When a parasite is under attack, it launches a defense mechanism, draining energy from its host.
When Max healed me, it should have killed him.
In order to keep your organs from shutting down I siphoned energy from the person I'm tethered to.
- (COUGHING) - KYLE: Whoa, whoa.
She's nearing end-stage arrhythmia.
Well, okay, maybe I can stop it.
(PANTING) (GRUNTS) You're hurting him.
It's not just Liz.
You're tethered to Kyle, too.
It's like your life forces, they're-they're tied together.
If you heal her, it's gonna kill him.
Four ríos down, one to go.
(SCOFFS) Best fishing spot my ass.
What were you doing out here, Diet Max? (CRACKLES) Clearly you used your fire ability, but what did you burn? (GASPS) (PANTING) JORDAN: These murderers are running free.
It's time we sent a strong message.
That's why I called our friends in Lincoln and Otero County.
They'll be here soon.
Y-You called in other people? - Mm-hmm.
- Dude, this is the Roswell Regiment.
(SCOFFS) Now, I got to get back to work before the sheriff finds out that I'm gone.
If you know what's good for you, you'll leave, too.
(CAR DOOR OPENS) - You ready for this? - (ENGINE STARTS) BROCK: I certainly am.
(SHOUTS) You guys are late! You were supposed to be here an hour ago! Damn riots outside held us up.
MARIA: Jordan, just put the gun down.
You don't want to be a murderer.
You don't know anything about me or what I want, DeLuca.
I lost a friend, too, okay? I've felt that pain before.
- Oh, yeah? - (GUN COCKS) Did you find your friend's body? Huh? Zeke was so burnt up, I could only recognize his shoes.
The Lopezes have had it out for Zeke since day one 'cause he dared to stand up to the infestation taking over.
We're gonna burn down their house.
Give Zeke the justice he deserves.
What if you're wrong? Whoever killed Zeke is a monster, but if it wasn't the Lopezes, how are you doing right by your friend? Also, your sadness does not excuse your racism.
Y'all love throwing around that word.
Always playing the victim.
System's rigged against guys like me! MARIA: The thing about guys like you, Jordan, is that somehow all of your problems are magically caused by people who don't look like you.
When does the guy in the mirror get judged? This isn't about me.
- People need to know the truth.
- Which is what? That they murdered my friend! Hated what he stood for so much that they left him out there in the cold where no one would ever find him.
You moved his body.
You're damn right I did.
Come on.
Let's do this.
Give me the gas can.
Come on.
This livestream is hitting all the Times feeds.
10,000 views already.
Not bad for a small town beat.
The problem is you, Max, not them.
Let me heal your heart.
It's the only way to save Liz.
Do it.
(GROANING) Don't let him touch you.
He's a murderer.
You killed Zeke.
JONES: I had to.
You were gonna die.
I saw your scans in Dr.
Valenti's office, the irreparable heart damage.
What, so you decided to kill someone? I didn't want to.
But I didn't have the strength to save him if I didn't.
MICHAEL: And you conveniently left that out of last night's fireside chat.
Would you have let me heal him if I told you? I wanted to spare you the burden of making an impossible decision.
It is our burden, decision or not.
I spent my last few hours looking for the most wicked person I could find.
And when I found Zeke, he was beating a farmer to death.
So you followed him down to Rio Hondo and then you burned him alive.
Zeke's life is not as valuable as your brother's.
(LIZ AND KYLE COUGHING) Listen to my feelings, Isobel, I'm not lying.
I traded the life of one evil racist for the lives of three good people.
Does that make me a villain? KYLE (STRAINS): Guys Guys, she's seizing! She's seizing.
JONES: You're the savior, Max.
No one understands this better than I do.
Do it.
Do it.
Go ahead.
(GRUNTS, SCREAMS) (STRAINS) Howdy, partner.
How do you feel? Better than I have in a long time.
How's, uh, uh, Liz and - Kyle? They're good.
- Yeah.
- He drove her home.
- Great.
Well, I appreciate y'all, uh, not giving up on us.
We are a united front.
That's what matters.
(GRUNTS) (EXHALES) All right.
I will get the silver.
You guys get him ready for the pod.
(LAUGHS) KYLE: You remember this as a kid? Sana, sana, colita de rana, rana.
Are you channeling the mystical healing properties of Vaporu - right now? - Ooh, maybe.
Oh, yeah? Your pulse is steady.
I think you're out of the woods.
I was awful to you the last time I was here.
And yet here you are.
Don't you remember? We're family.
Besides, the only person I was really mad at was myself.
For not taking a stand in my own life.
When I saw you taking a stand in yours.
I quit Genoryx.
I'm not going back to L.
My purpose has always been here.
In my own backyard.
I have a feeling you already knew that, though.
I'm glad you're back.
(KNOCKING) Oh, Kyle, this is Heath, my Colleague.
(CLEARS THROAT) I'm gonna check on Evans.
There is no Dr.
Jane Holden, is there? Liz, I trusted you.
I mean, you said you trusted me I do.
- (EXHALES) - I just I want to tell you everything.
I just, I The truth is, I can't.
It would put people that I care about in harm's way.
So then your first instinct was to send me on some wild goose chase? I'm sorry, I just, I didn't feel like I had another choice.
Well, you could have been honest.
I mean, ask me to step away while you and Max talked about whatever it is you needed to talk about.
Would I have liked it? No.
But I-I would have understood, I would have respected it.
I didn't want to hurt you.
You know, when you coded last night, I I was terrified that you were gonna die.
And then you gave me this task that I believed was the single avenue to saving your life.
So I told myself, I was damn well not gonna screw that up.
I mean, do you have any idea what my mind went through every single time I hit a dead end today? - Heath - That I was failing you! And not in some dumb lab experiment.
In keeping you alive.
It was the one time in my life that what I did actually mattered.
And I couldn't find the only person who could fix you.
So, yeah.
I know that you may not have wanted to hurt me, Liz but I cannot imagine a way you could have hurt me any more.
So much for saving the world together.
ROSA: Did Liz ask you to do that? Uh no.
It's the least I can do.
Go home.
I absolve you of your crimes.
Hey, uh You know, when I was a-a kid feeling guilty I used to lie in my truck thinking about what Rosa Ortecho would be like all grown up.
I always thought if you didn't get to live a life, that I didn't deserve one either.
And that felt like a fitting punishment.
Well, I'm here now.
We were scared.
And we were stupid.
And we should've known what putting you in that driver's seat would do.
And I wish, I wish I could give you some kind of justice.
But this is, sadly, the best that I can do.
(CHUCKLES) I've never heard you say this many words at once.
It's freaky.
Not a lot of people get a second chance to make things right.
You did, though.
Makes me think there's hope for me yet.
(CHUCKLES) Maybe there is.
I knew you'd still be here.
Thank you for saving my life.
That is the least I can do to return the favor.
I was, um, sitting in my room, trying to recover from almost dying, and I realized I never got a good look at the reason we're not together.
Well, the reason for that is far more complicated than a man in a pod.
You mean like the fact that we can't stop hurting each other no matter how hard we try? I'm sorry.
I never meant to do what I did.
You aren't the only one hurting people.
I was terrible to Heath today.
And in a moment where I had to choose, I chose you.
I knew what that would do to him, but I sent him away anyway.
