Ten Days in the Valley (2017) s01e02 Episode Script

Day 2: Cutting Room Floor

1 - Mommy! - Thought maybe I'd take her - up to Ojai tomorrow.
- She's going to school.
You don't just get to decide - No, no, actually, I really do.
- No, don't When I'm with Daddy, I miss you so much that I think I want to go to heaven.
Tell me you're on fire.
The scene in the alley is not gonna fly.
- I'm out of addys.
- Is this gonna work for you? Lake! Pete cannot come into your house and take your daughter without asking you.
- Cops are out hard tonight.
- Oh, it's cool.
I'm good.
What about the house keys? I don't know.
Everyone has a key to this house.
Detective, this is my assistant Casey.
Jane doesn't know about us, right? She barely even knows your real name.
BIRD: What about the kid on the bike? I've never seen him before.
BIRD: When I was a kid, we had an ant problem in our yard.
I used to spray them with poison.
They'd crawl back into their holes and never came back out again.
Los Angeles streets at night remind me of those ant nests.
Something apocalyptic about it.
We're almost at the 24-hour mark.
We got us a new lead.
Just need to find the kid on the bike.
Have you looked into Pete's cellphone records? Yep.
So you know what he's been doing, who he's been talking to? You sure you don't know who the kid on the bike is? I don't know the kid on the bike.
You know, it's funny.
Even in this job, it's hard not to take it personal when people lie to you.
I'm sorry I lied about the timeline.
Won't happen again.
- A reporter.
- REPORTER: Detective, any comment? We're hearing reports of a missing child.
Are you the mother? We're investigating an ongoing domestic issue.
There ain't no story here.
Did anyone talk to that reporter out there? What? Which reporter? The one outside with the Daily News.
Tom? What? No, of course not.
But I do think it's time we put the word out.
BIRD: Not yet.
You lose control once the media get ahold of this.
You pass the 48-hour mark, we'll do a press conference, release certain details and hold others back.
Well, I would think that the more people looking for her, the better.
Are we putting an Amber Alert out? BIRD: Amber Alert requires a detail license plate, something concrete.
Until we have that, I'd like to keep a handle on what's getting out there.
Like you all to come and take a look at something for me.
Bea, you, too.
Tell me if you recognize this guy.
ALI: Jane? You okay? Yeah, fine.
You should be seeing this.
- BIRD: You're sure? - TOM: I'm sure.
I've never seen him before.
Look, Pete and I will canvass the neighbors first thing tomorrow.
Covered dozens of these cases.
It always comes down to someone saw something.
Then I can ask around about the kid on the bike.
Just make sure you coordinate with us first, all right? Hey, uh, you guys need to go home.
I'm gonna stay here tonight.
No, no, no.
You don't have your stuff.
You don't have your shots or anything.
It's fine.
I'll get it tomorrow.
Please, look, just [SIGHS.]
go home, okay? Do your thing.
Let me sleep for a bit.
I don't I don't want to leave you.
- B-Bea will stay with me, right? - Of course.
It's fine.
She needs to sleep.
Okay, um, it's what quarter after 1:00? I'll be back by 6:00.
Patrol unit's out front.
I'll be on my cell.
Okay, yeah.
The cellular number you are calling - is no longer in service.
- [SIGHS.]
All right, Bea, you know what? You need to go home.
What? Yeah, honestly, I just I really need to be alone.
I'm gonna call you a-a car.
You can, uh, go home, sleep for a bit, - and then come back, okay? - But Honestly, I'm not asking.
I'll I'll I'll text you if I hear anything, okay? - Okay.
- Okay.
- Nos vemos en la mañana.
Okay? - Yeah, okay.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- Bye.
- BEA: Bye.
- Bye.
Thank you for calling KYONG BBQ.
Our office hours are 8:00 a.
to [SIGHS.]
Uh, Pete's alibi, Kathryn Collins, what time's she coming in? She said she'd be in by noon.
Get her in here top of day, will you? - You still think it's the dad.
- Yeah, I do.
He's got a history of this sort of thing.
There's no sign of break and entry except for the mother.
So whoever took her must have had a key.
I just don't know how this kid on the bike fits into it.
Hey, you've been grinding back-to-back cases for 48 hours now, right? Come on, man.
Hit the rack, get some rest.
We've got a dozen guys on this.
All right, first thing's up.
I want you to talk to her school, classmates, piano teachers, other babysitters, other parents, everybody in her frickin' life.
I want footage on every security camera within 20 blocks of the Sadler house.
All traffic cameras that parallel and bisect Laurel Canyon from Sunset to the 101.
Get me something.
BUDDY: We're on it.
Wide net.
Oh, and our friend, Mr.
Greene, I want him in here first thing sun up for another visit.
Babe, can I help? [CELLPHONE CHIMES.]
- What is it? Nothing.
It's nothing.
None of these photos are right.
I take pictures of her every day.
Why can't I find one for the poster? Come here.
We're gonna find her.
Probably tomorrow.
And when we do, we should book an amazing vacation, you, me, and Lake.
She would totally love that, right? I know this is hard on you.
It's okay.
I'll quit work as soon as we find her, take a little time off, just you and me.
I can't get out of my head.
The hardest part of sobriety is I don't get a break from my brain.
We could get naked.
I can't do this right now.
I'm sorry.
It's not you.
I just You know it's not you, right? I get it.
It's okay.
Hey, why not use this one right here? I'm such an idiot.
It was right in front of my face.
Thank you.
WOMAN: Next.
All right, your order will be up in about 10 minutes.
Excuse me.
Excuse me.
Hey, hey.
There's a line here.
- WOMAN: Um, hello.
- Come on.
Uh, back of the line.
Hey, oh, oh, I asked for no daikon sprouts.
You see that? Daikon.
Like he stole my most private inner thoughts.
Five pages of stuff after I lost my virginity to that Ian guy, and, like - WOMAN: Hi.
What can I get you? - Oh, hi.
Uh, a bibimbap bowl and a kimchidila, please? PJ: A billion little secrets keeping people going.
LAKE: Do you have any secrets? - Next.
- Hi.
I'm looking for PJ.
He's one of your delivery guys.
Oh, if you want takeout, you'll have to call.
- The number's on the side of the van.
- No, no, no.
I'm not looking for takeout.
I'm actually looking for PJ.
I don't know him.
Well, someone manages your employees.
Where's your manager? Look, PJ works for Sheldon.
I'm here to pay him.
They're expecting me.
1317 Willow Street downtown.
- You'll hear it.
- Thank you.
What up, little man? Yeah, you good? [LIGHT SWITCH CLICKS.]
I know.
It's ironic.
MAN: Your documentaries are known for exposing some pretty big stories.
You uncovered a massive sex scandal in the San Diego Police Department, went up against a Republican senator, got him arrested for corruption and kickbacks.
As far as I know, he's still out there, mowing his lawn, doing his thing.
And now you're moving into fiction.
Well, I'm trying.
We'll see.
But, I mean, it's really it's all just storytelling, right? And sometimes I think it might be easier to tell the truth when you get to make stuff up.
But But either way, a documentary or scripted drama, you're you're still trying to shape the story, you know? W-Which means that you're always leaving little bits of truth on the cutting room floor.
little bits of truth on the cutting room floor.
Rude boy Thanks.
WOMAN: I mean, they really killed at that show.
Excuse me.
I'm looking for PJ.
I'm supposed to meet him here.
Oh, I don't think he was here tonight, but you can ask Sheldon.
- Okay.
Where's Sheldon? - This way.
Who's this? She's looking for someone.
Yeah, I'm looking for PJ.
I need to talk to him.
You know there are already 47 types of tacos in this city and counting? But my Korean BBQ taco the best.
You want to try it? No, I don't.
I-I need to find PJ.
- I know that he works for you.
- Why PJ? He was at my house Sunday night.
Something went missing.
I need to find out if he saw anything.
You putting the cops on him? No.
If I was, they'd be here, not me.
I'm serious.
I'm a customer.
You don't believe me, do you? [MUSIC CONTINUES.]
Excuse me.
Do you mind? - Whoa! - All right.
Now, if I was cop, nothing would be admissible, right? Rude boy That's not cocaine.
Never said it was.
- What is it? - Special K.
It's a trip.
First time? Buckle up.
Oh, my God.
Where's PJ? I can't do this right now.
I need PJ.
I need PJ.
What did you lose? [EERIE MUSIC PLAYS.]
My kid.
I lost my kid.
- Oh, my God.
- Hey.
The bathroom's just down there.
Give your face a splash, all right? [DOOR OPENS.]
If I sleep in your bed, are you going to leave? No, I promise.
I miss you so much that I think I want to go to heaven.
SHELDON: Open the door.
I'm about to take a leak in a mop bucket.
JANE: What time is it? About 6:00.
I need to get to PJ.
Open the door.
PJ changes his burner every Monday.
- I don't have his new number yet.
- Where does he live? Doesn't he sleep in a treehouse in his parents' backyard or something? I don't actually know.
He will be in touch today.
I'll tell him to call you.
Oh, God.
I can't wait until Look.
I do know he has a 9:00 a.
film class.
So-Cal Film Academy over on Olive Street.
Pretty sure he's there every day.
Look, if you need to sleep it off a little bit No, no, no, no.
I want to go now.
Is Jane up? Um, she's not here.
What do you mean? Did she send you home after I left? Of course she did.
Where would she go? What I mean, what is her problem? Why is she not answering? Jane, Jane, you can't do this right now.
I'm at your place.
You need to be here.
Call me back.
Why wouldn't she answer her phone? I mean, what if we had news? Maybe she went to get coffee? Okay.
Yeah, maybe.
Hey, um, did you give a key to the gardener? The police want all of the keys, and the gardener said he never got one.
Oh, uh, it's probably inside.
I'll find it.
I'm gonna see if the officers saw her leave.
This is ridiculous.
All right.
Thanks for dropping by.
What's going on? Any news? I got some security footage I'd like you to take a look at.
You know that guy? No.
No, I've never seen him before.
You guys know Jane's not fit to have custody of a child, right? I mean, if this fiasco hasn't proved that once and for all, I don't know what will.
Look, I suffer from addiction, an illness that I have under control.
Either way, the world's gonna view me as a bad parent.
But for all we know, Jane was doped up on sleeping pills and red wine.
Anyone ask her to pee into a cup? [SCOFFS.]
Hell, no.
'Cause she's a high-functioning, award-winning documentary filmmaker.
Well, have you guys looked into whoever she's sleeping with? No.
Not yet.
- Who is she sleeping with? - I don't know, but I'll bet you she's sleeping with someone.
She usually is.
Really? How long ago did she leave? Okay, I'll be right there.
Hey, where are you? Have you heard anything? No, not yet.
Where Where are you? - Are you coming home? - Yeah, I'll be home in a bit.
Don't worry about me.
I'm fine.
Jane, Jane, Jane.
Yeah, right.
WOMAN: I usually try to wait at least five minutes to respond to a text, you know? Can't seem too eager.
It was all just easy with her.
We were talking all day.
And then bam, suddenly we were sitting on the patio of Eveleigh drinking mojitos.
It was, like, storybook beautiful.
MATT: You had an online date after the day we had? I know.
It felt weird.
But, Matt, you've got to see this woman.
You're not gonna believe it.
- Hey.
- You guys are here early.
Yeah, we had to get the pages out before call.
Have you heard anything? Nothing yet.
I was photocopying these fliers.
Jane here? No, she's at home.
She's a wreck.
Wait, are they gonna shut down production? Nope.
Third episode airs tomorrow.
Train's left the station.
Hey, man.
Sorry you're going through this.
I got three kids of my own.
I just can't imagine how you're feeling, - what you're going through - Hope these do the trick.
These are great.
Seriously, they're perfect.
Thank you.
Of course.
Whatever you need.
You give Jane our love.
Yeah, I will.
I got to go.
Uniforms let me in.
Said Jane's not here.
- Hormone injections? - Uh, yeah.
My second wife did three rounds.
- Did it work? - Nah.
Don't mean it won't.
You want a hand? I'm pretty much an expert.
Uh, yeah.
I-I do.
I just I hate doing it.
It's counterintuitive stabbing yourself with a needle.
Where you at? Um, trying naturally, naturally with needles, hormones.
Next month, IVF.
It's expensive.
That's what Tom keeps saying.
He's a little stressed.
Got laid off a few months ago.
Ali, where is your sister? Oh! Oh, my [SIGHS.]
- Great.
- It's all right.
Just watch your hands.
More bad luck.
Oh, no.
These stupid tiles cost a fortune.
Jane doesn't even care about them.
They were Pete's pick.
Yeah, they're pretty.
All right, you ready? [SIGHS.]
Go for it.
ALI: Um, Jane's just out getting a coffee.
Yeah? She must love coffee.
She's been gone all night.
Yeah, I just talked to her.
She's fine.
She's on her way back.
You know, she was probably just driving around, trying to calm down.
I don't know.
What can you tell me about the guy Jane's been seeing? Oh, she's not seeing anyone.
I would know.
Pete mentioned a guy.
Pete thinks she's sleeping with everyone.
Give him a day.
He'll say she's sleeping with you.
Um, you want anything? Help yourself.
Good morning.
Good morning.
How are you? You wanted our keys, right? - Yeah, yeah, I do.
- Okay.
Well, thi this one's mine.
And, uh, this one was supposed to be for the gardener.
So, uh, how long you worked for Jane? Uh, about a year now.
Yeah? You guys must be close.
Lake must be real attached to you.
You got kids of your own? I came by myself from El Salvador about seven years ago.
Still tough back there, huh? Oh, yeah.
Li Life is better here.
But you don't have children.
My boyfriend can't have kids.
You know what? Have Jane give me a call as soon as she gets back, hmm? JANE: Hey, PJ.
You ass.
You been avoiding me? - Are you all right? - Did you see Pete Sunday night? - Maybe he was outside my house.
- No.
When? When you were at my house on Sunday.
What did you see? What are you talking about? I saw video of you staking out my place.
- What the hell is going on?! - Oh, slow down.
The police have surveillance video of you circling around in front of my place.
Did you go inside my house? No, God, I didn't go inside your house.
I went into your shed and I sold you a little something, which you are clearly still on.
Okay, look, Pete broke into my house on Sunday, and he took my kid, okay? I need to prove it.
I don't want to put the cops on you, but I will.
Okay, dude, chill out, all right? I'm just doing my thing.
I'm trying to climb my ass out of the ghetto.
Oh, shut up.
Your father's a dentist.
I'm talking the proverbial ghetto.
You think I'm eager to tell the cops that I had a drug dealer at my house while my kid was asleep? Just tell me what you saw, a-and I'll pretend I saw it.
Okay, there was a car parked outside of your house, and I was waiting for it to leave.
Okay, well, what kind of car? A black car.
Sporty? Sedan? S-Sporty, I guess.
Maybe like a BMW.
I'm not really a car guy, so - A black BMW? - I think so.
I mean, I went by to see who was in it, and I went down the street, circled back, and then the car booked right turn onto Valley Road.
It banged into a street sign, it was going so fast.
Did you see who was in it? I don't know.
Some guy.
Couldn't really tell who it was.
It was Pete! Pete's got a black BMW.
It was definitely him.
It was definitely Pete.
Don't come back to my school, okay? Okay, Casey, I need you to meet me at Pete's.
I'll be there in 20 minutes.
ALI: Just keep an eye out.
If Lake wandered out of the house in the middle of the night, she could have found her way into Fryman Canyon.
I don't know.
She could have fallen somewhere, hurt herself.
Does she have a history of sleepwalking? No.
But she was home alone, so she may have gone looking for her mom.
Her mother wasn't home? Her mother was in the shed in the backyard, which is 10 feet away, and she had the baby monitor.
I'll put these up.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
Tom, you want to tell your friend to stop vilifying my sister? It's not gonna help.
I know you've been raised to clean up after her mess, Ali.
Love it.
Born-again father.
Well, where is she now? Where's Jane? - That's enough.
- I don't know.
Come on.
The both of you, stop.
I'm going this way to the next house.
What are we doing here? There was a black BMW parked outside my house.
When it left, it went so fast, it hit a sign.
So Pete has a black BMW.
I just want to see if there's a scratch on it.
- Could you, please let me in? - Oh.
Good thing I have everyone's keys.
- Uh, I'll be there in a second.
- Okay.
Hello? Hi, Kathryn? This is Detective Bilson.
You're supposed to be here right now giving us your statement.
I'm at work.
I can't leave.
Miss Collins, we need to speak to you right away.
But I already gave my statement.
A detective has to follow up in person.
It's protocol.
We've already explained that.
Where's she at? I'll go get her.
We can come to you.
I really can't have cops showing up at my job.
Um, I'll be there right after work.
6:00 p.
, all right? Listen, just stay on her, all right? I looked into Sadler's housekeeper like you asked.
BMW's not here.
Maybe he's driving it.
No, neither is the Jag.
I will die without her.
I will die.
I mean, what what if I never get her back? I mean, what if she's really gone? [SOBBING.]
Oh, my God.
Casey, what if she's really gone? I mean Oh, my God.
I can't do this.
I can't do this.
- Yes, you can.
- I can't do this.
No, no, no.
I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't.
You just got to breathe, all right? It's gonna be okay.
She's not a dog, you know.
- Hey! - She's a kid.
- Jane.
- PETE: Jane! What are you doing? You're putting up posters like she's a dog.
She's not a dog.
She's our kid.
What'd you do with her? Where's your car? I know you were here that night.
I-I give up, you know? Just I just give up.
Can I help you? Detective John Bird.
I knocked, but, uh, nobody answered.
Bea still at work? Yeah.
Why? Thought I'd pop by, see where she lived, check out her house, meet her boyfriend.
Well, you're meeting him.
Leonardo Vargas.
How you doing, man? - Todo bien.
- Mm.
Yeah, that's a nice truck out here.
Yeah, it's nice.
I ran your name.
It came up.
- That was a long time ago.
- Mm.
Did a three-year bit.
I know.
It's still there on your record.
Long list of B&E.
What you do with all this stuff? LEONARDO: Fix stuff, sell stuff.
Some gardening off the books.
Off the books, huh? I'm an ex-con, bro.
I can't get no real job, so I do what I can.
Hey, man, do you mind? So you fix stuff, and you sell stuff, huh? I guess you still steal stuff, huh? You have anything to do with the disappearance of Lake Sadler-Greene? Huh? [FOOTSTEPS APPROACH.]
Jane, where the hell you been? [SIGHS.]
It's been almost 36 hours.
We're gonna find your daughter, but not without your cooperation.
What? I have been cooperating.
I've been cooperating.
You're just not listening.
You're not listening to me, all right? The tiles, the ones in your bathroom, where are the extra tiles? What? The extra tiles, where did you put them? What are you talking about? I don't I don't I don't I don't know.
I mean, [SCOFFS.]
maybe maybe Pete took them.
Maybe Casey put them in storage.
W-What's your point? My point is did you know that Bea's got a 16-year-old daughter in El Salvador she's been trying to bring to the U.
for the past five years now? - Why Why wouldn't she tell me that? - I don't know.
But I do know immigration lawyers cost a lot.
Luckily for Bea, she's got a convict boyfriend bringing in some extra cash.
- [SIGHS.]
- That's right.
She gave him the key to your house.
He came in while you were at work, took the tiles from your guest room.
They were in your closet.
That's where they were.
What does that have to do with Lake? That's what I'm trying to find out.
Now, we do know they broke in here within the last week.
We also know they're both desperate for money, more money than a few tiles will bring them.
You do the math.
Hey, listen to me.
You don't have a handle on this, do you? She's your daughter.
You have no idea who you can trust.
Bea? Bea? You need to let me talk to Leonardo because I-I don't know what he said to you.
- Bea? - I No, I don't understand.
- You have to let me - Bea! You gave your boyfriend a key to my house? What were you thinking? I trusted you! I trusted you with my house, - with my kid! - Don't You don't know what my life is like! - Because you don't - You don't know how I live.
You don't know my daughter - You don't - No, you never told me.
- I could have helped you! - How?! - Why didn't you come to me? - Why? You're never here! You're always at work, all the time! - I never see you! - So you steal from me?! - Where is she? - All right.
Enough! - Where is she? - Jane, I don't know! - I would never take her! - Cuff her! Take her down! I don't know where she is! I would never do that to you! - Did you take her? - Never! - Sell her along with my tiles?! - Jane! The police have been calling me all day.
I have to go in.
So go in.
Okay, but they want to know what we were doing the night Lake went missing, and I don't know what to tell them we were doing because I don't know what you were doing.
Just say you were in bed with me all night 'cause that's what we do every night.
But that's not what we did that night.
I'm so tired, I'm afraid I'm gonna screw up and say something wrong.
So you'll go in tomorrow.
It's late.
They've probably got a bunch of other things they're working on, at least I hope they do.
Okay, but where were you, actually? Honey, I was home.
I was here.
By yourself? Yes.
Of course by myself.
It's just simpler and cleaner if somebody else can verify that.
That's all.
Maybe we should just close our eyes for a little bit, and maybe when we wake up, Lake will be back.
That's a key to Jane's house.
Yeah, it's Lake's key.
She asked me to keep it safe for her.
We're checking his alibi now.
It looks like Leonardo Vargas was at a house party in Sylmar between the hours of 10:00 p.
and 3:30 a.
Bea was at home with her sister-in-law.
So they didn't take her? Doesn't look like it.
I'm not ruling anything out.
Listen, we still got them on theft charges, but if you're not gonna charge them, I'm gonna have to No, I want to.
Charge them both.
There was a-a black car, BMW, idling outside my house 12:15, 12:30, took a right on Valley Road, and hit a street sign.
- Saw the car yourself? - Pete has a black BMW.
If he hit a sign, if it was his car, then there'd be a scratch on it, right? And you're just telling me this now? I'm just remembering it now.
Yeah, you know what I think? I think you're trying to shape the story.
Now, you told me you're not gonna lie to me anymore.
But all I see is you're just leaving bits of the truth all over the cutting room floor.
What do you think? You think I buried my daughter in the backyard? Is that your theory? [SCOFFS.]
Commander Gomez's office.
Yes, sir.
One moment.
GOMEZ: Come in.
Commander Gomez, here are the latest scripts from Jane Sadler's show.
Thank you.
Did you read them? - Flipped through.
- And? It's a cop show.
How'd you get these? It's a little complicated, but truly, I'm not complaining.
Need anything else? No, no, no.
Go home.
Have a night.
Here we go.
You left my name at the gate.
- I'm touched.
- Well, after last night, I would have given you the keys to my house.
Proves the Internet is good for something.
ALI: Hey.
Need anything? I'm good, thanks.
Ready? Oh, no.
But you should.
No, I cannot.
Someone has to stand watch.
You don't have to look after me, you know.
Yeah, I do.
Is this payback for all those years I was a horrible babysitter? What? Are you kidding? You were the greatest babysitter.
Ice cream soup.
Remember ice cream soup? [INHALES SHARPLY.]
Are you sleeping with someone? What? When would I have time? Pete told Bird that there was a man in your life.
He said that to the police? Oh, my God.
He's such an idiot.
- He has no idea.
- You would tell me, right? Of course.
No, don't.
Do not.
You do not need to be thinking about work right now.
You need to be getting some sleep.
I know.
You do? Yeah.
Just checking.
LAKE: Hi, Mama.
Oh, my God.
What? I know you're too busy to see me, but I love you, and I'm okay.
