Sullivan's Crossing (2023) s02e08 Episode Script

Truth and Consequences

Sully, grab me some sweatshirts
to put under her head.
It's all right.
Here you go.
- CAL: Sedona
- MAGGIE: It's okay.
Sedona! Is she gonna be okay?
Does your sister have
a history of seizures?
Uh No, I don't think so.
What can I do?
We just have to let it run its course.
Hey, Sedona, can you hear me?
- Can you hear me?
- Hey.
MAGGIE: Hey, easy, easy.
Easy, easy. Just take
a minute. It's okay.
I got you. I got you.
I'm a doctor. You just had a seizure.
Can you tell me, do
you know where you are?
Uh, Sullivan's Crossing.
We gotta get her to the hospital.
SEDONA: No hospital!
Hey, what are you talking about?
Sedona, we need to
make sure you're okay.
I said no, Cal.
No hospitals, no doctors.
She doesn't want to go; can't make her.

Cal, I know what happened
last night scared you,
but I can stay in my own cabin.
I just watched you have a seizure.
We're not kids anymore, Cal. You
don't have to take care of me.
I'm worried about you, Sedona.
You don't have to be.
(SIGHING) You know, I have always known
when you weren't being honest with me.
What aren't you telling me?
This wasn't, um
my first seizure.
Why would you hide something like that?
Because the doctors
are saying that it is
all in my head.
Okay. What do you mean "in your head"?
They're, um
called pseudo seizures
and apparently, they're stress-related,
and they said I just need to
take some time off and relax.
So, that's why you're here.
So, if you are done
interrogating me now,
I'm going to
get dressed and go for a walk
on my own.
Any word on how Cal's sister is doing?
I'm going to head over there after
breakfast and check in on her.
- What?
- For me, it was shrimp.
- What was?
- The cravings?
Yep, shrimp cocktail,
morning, noon, and night.
- PHOEBE: Mm-hmm.
So, your mom and I were thinking
about fixing up your room a little.
Make you more comfortable
for when you visit with the baby.
It's really nice to see
you two getting along.
I could get used to this.
How long are you gonna give
me this silent treatment?
What you said hurt, Frank.
I'm sorry.
Your cousin is reaching out his hand.
Why won't you take it?
You can't understand.
I know what it means to be
discriminated against Frank.
Not by your own community.
But that's because my Métis
ancestors made a choice
to bring two conflicting
peoples together.
You could learn a thing
or two from them, you know.
My mother wanted me
to have that regalia,
but they gave it away
without talking to me.
When Phoebe left Sully,
she turned her back on all of us,
and you blaming your cousin
for someone else's mistake,
it's the same thing. It's not right.
I don't want to talk about this.
You here for the photo shoot?
Oh, yeah. I wasn't sure
I was in the right place.
Yeah, this is it.
Miranda. Love your look.
Thanks. Sydney.
You new? Haven't seen you around.
Actually, I took a little time off,
so I'm just getting back into things.
It's been a while. I'm a bit nervous.
I'm sure you'll do great. You ready?
I guess we'll see.
Hey, Sully.
Hey, haven't heard from
you in a couple days.
Thought I'd check in,
see how you're doing.
Thought maybe we could grab a coffee.
Oh, I'd love to, but I took your advice
and I'm on my way to
register for my next semester.
But I could stop by tonight if you want.
I'd like that.
See you then.

- They're everywhere!
- Hey, everything okay?
- Ahh! They're they're all over me.
- MAGGIE: Hey, let me have a look.
- Let me have a look. Let me have a look.
- Oh my God. (STAMMERING)
They're all over me. Get them off!
It's okay. Just calm down.
There isn't anything on you.
There is nothing on you.
- What are you talking about?!
- I promise.
What is the matter with
you?! Why can't you see them?!
Sedona, there isn't anything on you.
- Get them off.
- It's okay.
Help me! It's okay. Just breathe.
Help me! Help me!
Look at me.
You're safe.
- Just breathe.
Stay calm. It's okay.
SULLY: All right.
It's a nice thing that
you're doing, Sully.
I've got a lot to make up for.
We both do.
This baby is a chance
for us to start fresh.
I-I'd like that.
Yeah we better get back to it.
Uh, let me get you a T-shirt.
You cannot paint in that.
Hey, Sully?
I'm really glad we're doing this.

CAL: Thanks for calming Sedona down.
(SIGHING) She's asleep now.
You know, growing up,
I always knew of her
bug phobia, but I've never seen
her behave like that before.
There weren't any ticks on her, Cal.
I think she was hallucinating.
I mean, the seizure, and now this
Are you sure that she's
not taking any drugs?
No, no. Sedona would never do anything
to jeopardise her medical license.
She told me today that this
wasn't her first seizure,
that the doctors are calling it, uh
"pseudo seizures".
Psychogenic non-epileptic
seizures, yeah.
Okay. What causes them?
There seems to be a link
between childhood abuse
and mental illness.
Is there a history of
that in your family?
My father
was schizophrenic.
It was just one of those
things we grew up hiding.
Do you think that could be it?
I can't know for sure
without further testing.
You know, I read that
there's a one in ten chance
of developing schizophrenia
if one of your parents has it.
There is no reason to
jump to conclusions, Cal.
Even if that happened, there
are medications you can take
to manage the condition
and people with schizophrenia
can still lead a normal life.
Only if you take those medications.
My father never did.
But that's a choice
that your father made.
I could never put a child through that.
I should probably be
in there with Sedona.
I'll text you after she wakes up.
That was a great catch.
- But I missed second base.
- Ah, it's okay.
Look, you're just rushing.
You've gotta lead with your glove,
the ball will follow, okay?
Hey, I'll see you at the
snack shack in a sec, okay?
- Cool.
- Get yourself something.
Hey, Jane. (CHUCKLING)
Wait up a sec.
Listen, you don't need to feel
like you have to talk to me, Rob.
We had a nice time and
that's all it was, I get it.
Jane, wait.
I shouldn't have left like that.
I'm sorry.
I had a great time.
You have a funny way of showing it.
ROB: Yeah.
I like you, Jane.
I like you a lot.
But truth is
I haven't been on a date
with anyone since my
my wife died.
And I'm just wondering if we
could maybe slow things down a bit.
That be okay with you?
I can do that.
So, we're good?
We're good.
Okay. See you around.

- Break a leg.
- Thanks.
Sydney Shandon?
That's me.
The client wants fierce.
Come on.
- Give me some more attitude.
- Sorry.
I just need a moment to
get my head into this.
- That's it.
- Gorgeous.
- Yeah.
- Nice.
All right, take five.
Wow. You still got it.
- Thank you.
- Congrats.
Hey, appreciate the pep talk.
I think it really helped.
Save your breath.
My manager gave me the 411 on you.
"Your manager"?
Morning, sleepyhead.
You okay?
I'm scared.
Hey, I'm right here and
I'm not going anywhere.
I don't want Chris to find
out about the hallucinations.
Do the doctors know?
No, I haven't told them.
Why not?
Because I don't want to
hear what they're gonna say.
You can't be sure it's
schizophrenia Sedona.
I know you don't believe that, Cal.
All right, don't be mad, but, uh
I asked Maggie to come.
(SIGHING) Oh, my
I'd just like to take a quick
look to rule out a few things.
I've been through all of this already.
Something might have been overlooked.
It's a waste of time. All
the tests come back normal.
CAL: Sedona, please
for me.
Fine, if it'll make you feel better.
I'd like to start with
a few standard tests.
Do you mind sitting on
the edge of the bed for me?
Check your pupils, see how they dilate.
Look at me. It'll be a little bright.
Looks good.
Good. Okay, now, if you could
touch your nose with your finger,
touch my finger, and back
and forth a few times.
Okay. And if you can put
your arms out in front of you
and resist as I try and push down.
Okay, one last thing: If I could get you
to walk across the room, heel
to toe, in a straight line.
That looks good.
See? I told you this
was a waste of time.
Do you have a pen and paper?
Yeah, sure.
What's that for?
One last task:
I'd like you to draw
the face of the clock.
Thanks. With the numbers
1 through 12 on it,
as you'd see them, put
the hands at 2 o'clock.
Seems easy enough.
I'm warning you, I'm
not much of an artist.
What's wrong?
- What does that mean?
- It means that there's
some sort of inflammation
going on in your brain.
What kind of inflammation?
Well, I'm not sure.
It could be an infection
or some sort of autoimmune response.
CAL: Does this mean
that she doesn't have
I can't know that
without further testing,
but I would like to get you in contact
with a few neurologists that I know,
help figure out exactly what's going on.
What if she's wrong, Cal?
You can't ignore this
anymore, all right?
You gotta do these tests
for Chris, for the kids
for you.
Fine. I
will call Chris and I will
tell him what's been going on.
CAL: We'll figure this out.
Okay. I'm gonna go to
Sully's, make some calls.
Thank you.
Of course.
We got this.
DAVID: Hey, Sydney. How are you?
It's been years.
I'd say it was nice to see you
again, but we both know I'd be lying.
Oh, how can you act like that?
After everything that
we've been through?
What did you tell Miranda?
What do you mean?
Don't play dumb. I'm not the same girl
that fell for all your lies.
I can't believe I ever
thought you cared about me.
Well, you left me, Sydney, remember?
You broke my heart.
No, I'm not going to
let you do this again.
I know exactly what happened.
You poisoned everyone against me,
made everyone think I was crazy,
manipulated me, and ruined my career.
You're a narcissist,
David, and I know that now.
Do you really think that I
would let you just come back
after all these years? Hmm?
I'm one of the most successful
managers in this business, Sydney.
Who do you think
they're going to believe?
or the girl that I spent
years convincing them
was irrational and unstable?
See you in there.
I think the room looks good.
At least I know, if I
can't find anything else,
I can always get a job painting houses.
I don't think you'll have
any problems finding a job.
I don't know.
I don't have the same
self-confidence Maggie does.
That's not true.
You remember that taxi driver
the first time you visited the Crossing?
How could I forget?
He drove me around in
circles all over town.
He thought he could overcharge me
because I wasn't from around here.
The way you stood up to him Oh, God.
I mean, I had never seen
anything quite like it.
I think you're selling yourself short.
- Okay.
- You know
Maggie wouldn't be
the woman she is today,
if it weren't for you.
I mean, you know,
who do you think she takes after?
Well, thank you. I, um,
think I needed to hear that.
Wouldn't say it if it wasn't true.
Ah, there's a little paint right there.

I've missed you, Sully.
I've missed you too, Phoebe.
We should probably go and finish up.

I heard that
She's good at what she does,
but she's a little strange.
Right? And hard to work with.
No, don't believe a word he's saying.
He's a liar.
Are you okay?
No, he's just trying
to make me look crazy.
Wow, this can't be good
for the other girls.
I mean, you might want to reconsider
keeping her on your roster.
Yeah, that's right. You should
probably just call a cab and head home.
(RECORDED:) Do you really think
that I would let you just come back
after all these years?
I'm one of the most successful
managers in this business, Sydney.
Who do you think they're
going to believe? Me
or the girl that I spent years
convincing them was
irrational and unstable?
You're the one that needs to leave.
- Harvey, uh, I can explain.
- No, no, no, no.
Let me tell you something:
By the time I'm done with you,
you won't be able to get a job
cleaning toilets in this town.
Do I need to call security?
No, I'm leaving.
Hey, Maggie.
How's Sedona doing?
She's agreed to go home
and do some more tests.
Glad to hear it.
I'll get it.
MAGGIE: Are you kidding me?
WALTER: Please.
What the hell are you doing here?
I'm not going anywhere without my wife.
If you think you can walk into my house
after what you've done,
you are out of your mind.
This has nothing to do with you, Sully.
Who do you think you are, you pompous
Stop it. Please.
Please, please, just
you have to hear me out.
They don't have to do anything, Walter.
Look, I know that you don't
owe me any favours, Sully,
and that I don't
deserve any help from you
after the way I've treated you.
But I am begging you, please
let me explain what happened.
I mean, come on, you of all
people know what it's like
to lose your family.
PHOEBE: Okay. It's okay.
It's okay, I
I'd like to hear what he has to say.
Thank you.
You have to believe me,
I never meant to hurt you.
I thought I had
everything under control,
and then, the stock market crashed.
So, you put my reputation,
my career, at risk for money?
WALTER: It wasn't like that, Maggie.
When you asked me to
invest in your practice,
I didn't want to let you down,
so I took out a loan.
The people that I borrowed
the money from got impatient.
They threatened to hurt you, Maggie,
and I didn't know what else to do.
Why didn't you just come to us?
I couldn't admit that I
failed. I thought I'd lose you.
I made a terrible mistake
and I will regret it
for as long as I live.
Sully, all this time,
I never considered what
it was like for you.
I'm sorry.
I judged you, I did.
I judged you for your
mistakes, and I used them
to keep your family from you,
and that's inexcusable.
I'm sorry.
I can't listen to this anymore.
- Maggie!
- No!
I appreciate the apology, Walter,
but it's a little too
late, don't you think?

CAL: So you gonna be okay?
Chris is gonna pick
me up at the airport.
Just sorry I had to
cut my trip short.
Maybe you could come visit, you know,
see the kids, when
this is all behind us.
I'd like that.
Um, I know I haven't been great
at keeping in touch the past few years.
It's normal to withdraw
after going through
what you did with Lynn.
I know how hard that was on you,
but I've missed you, Cal, we all have.
But, uh, you needed me and, uh
I wasn't there for you.
I'm sorry.
You needed time to heal.
Don't ever apologise for that.
I love you, big brother.

How could he just
show up here like that,
expecting us to forgive him?
Desperate people do
desperate things, Maggie.
Are you really defending him?
Believe me, no one's more
surprised about that than me,
I know what it feels like
to make a mistake that
costs you your family.
No, he could have come to us,
he could have told the truth,
and he didn't, he lied about it.
He didn't come forward
until he was forced to.
You think you'll ever
be able to forgive him?
I don't know.
I don't know if I'll
ever be able to do that.
I can't lose you.
What do you want from me, Walter?
I-I made a horrible
mistake, I know that.
If I could go back and
change things, I would.
It wasn't just a mistake, Walter.
You cost Maggie her practice.
I wasn't even considering
the consequence
because I was so
desperate to fix things.
Well, why didn't you come to me
and tell me what was going on?
I thought that, if you found out
that I'd lost everything,
that you'd leave me.
You really think the only reason
I'm with you is for your money?
I know you've never had
the same feelings for me
as you had for Sully.
There'll always be a special
place in my heart for him,
that's true, but
it doesn't mean I don't love you, too.
Is that why you never wanted
me to come here with Maggie?
I always thought, someday,
you'd go back to him.
And now, because of
what I've done, you have.
No. That's not why I'm here.
I love you, Walter.
Then, don't throw
away everything we have
just because of this.
I need you, Phoebe.
Don't turn your back on me, please,
not now, not when I need you the most.
Well, my taxi should be here soon.
Oh, thanks.
We're gonna figure this out Sedona.
- You're gonna be okay.
What about you?
What about me?
You're in love with Maggie.
You know that, right?
She's already with someone else
and she wants a family, and
you know how I feel about that.
I've never understood why you think
you're gonna be a bad father.
I mean, growing up, you were the
one that was there for all of us.
I don't think any of us would
have made it through without you.
We were just kids then.
Well, I think you're
underestimating yourself.
You know, a friend once told me
not every story has a happy ending.
I don't know. Maybe he's right.
Well, I hope he's wrong,
for both our sakes.
Come here.
MAGGIE: You're going back to him?
Walter made a mistake, Maggie.
But he's right, I
shouldn't let that erase
all the good years we've spent together.
How can you forgive him?
Because I'm not perfect either.
I've made mistakes too, Maggie,
and you never turned your back on me.
That is not the same, Mom.
- Isn't it?
- No.
I took you from a world you loved
and from a father who adored you.
What could be worse than that?
Are you sure you want to do this?
Too late for me to change my past.
It's not too late for
you to change your future.
Your happiness,
and this little one's, depends on it.

I know you're angry with me
and you have every right to be.
I just hope, one day,
you'll be able to forgive me.
I'm gonna need time.
Whatever it takes.
Could you give this to Edna for me?
Tell her that I'm sorry I
didn't have time to say goodbye.
Of course.
Thank you.
You left this in the kitchen.
PHOEBE: Thank you.
Good to see you again, Sully.
I meant what I said about
you being welcome here.

EDNA: Hey.
Where's Frank?
EDNA: I took him home early.
He was getting on my last nerve. Oh
What's wrong, my girl?
Come and sit down.
Walter showed up
and he convinced Phoebe
to go back to Boston.
Oh I see.
But she felt really bad about leaving
without saying goodbye, so
she wanted me to give you this.
EDNA: "For us to keep in touch."
A cell phone.
Frank's gonna hate this. (CHUCKLING)
Why don't I close up the store tonight?
Sully is having Lola over and I
could use a little time to myself.
Well, don't stay too late, okay?
- LOLA: Sully?
Ah, there you are.
Oh, good to see you.
- Yeah, you, too.
- Yeah.
Did you get those classes you wanted?
Yeah, most of them.
- Good.
- Yeah.
I'm so glad we're doing this.
I feel like I haven't seen
you in such a long time.
I know, and I'm sorry.
- LOLA: That's okay.
- Yeah. (SIGHING)
I was really hoping to
talk to you about something.
Sure, yeah.
I wanted to ask you about
the day of my accident.
Actually, I'm I'm
glad you brought that up.
I've been trying to find a
way to talk to you about it
for a while now, so
You have?
Yeah, um, let me
there's something I need to tell you,
um, and it's something I should
have told you a long time ago.
The day of the accident
was the day, uh
Phoebe took Maggie from me.
We had been fighting and
it all happened so fast?
I know.
I know, and that must have
been so hard for you to find me.
I should have told you
sooner, but I didn't know how.
LOLA: What are you saying?
I wasn't the one that found you, Lola.
I was the one that hit you.
That's not possible.
I wish it wasn't true.
Say something.
I'm sorry. I didn't
know how to tell you.
All these years, I thought you loved me.
SULLY: I do love you.
I trusted you.
You were like a father to me.
How could you lie to me like that?
I never want to see you again.
