Coming Home Again

1 Previously on The Cleaning Lady There's a hospital in Mexico that will do Luca's surgery.
If you could be ready by morning, I can take us there and back by jet.
What is Arman doing in Mexico? He went to Mexico to sell guns.
I have to go.
How will we get back to the U.
without you? Yeah, I got an informant in the wind.
All this time, I've kept things sexy and fun, and you still had to sneak around.
- It's not true.
- Get out! Arman! Armando! Arman! Dios mío! Arman! No, no! Dios mío! - Arman? Arman? - Wake up.
Wake up! Come back for me, Armando.
Stay with me.
Stay with me, Arman, please! Come back for me, Arman.
Come back for me, Arman.
Mi amor.
Mi amor Arman? Arman! Ay, mi amor.
Shh, shh, shh.
Estoy bien, estoy bien.
- Where are we? - Siéntate.
We are a couple of hours out of town.
I-I didn't know where to go.
Look, Arman, I'm sorry I said those things.
I was so mad, but I didn't mean it.
- I didn't mean it.
- It's okay, it's okay.
You're all right.
You're okay.
How long have I been out? In and out of it for almost a week.
Did Hayak call? I threw away our phones but checked voicemail.
It had to have been Hayek.
He must have found out about the gun deal with Noah.
Who else knew about it? Only Carlos.
Any word from them? No.
So you think Carlos told Hayek? What's important is that you're alive And we have each other.
Marco, you should be celebrating, not picking a fight.
Luca had surgery a week ago.
Why hasn't she told me when my son is coming home? Thony told you they want Luca to stay a little longer to recover.
Chris, time to get up! Go bang on your brother's door, will you? He'll just yell at me.
Chris, you're gonna be late for school again! Get a move on.
Why are you dressed like that? I'm going with you to see that lawyer.
I'm just gonna ask for an extension.
Mom, he's scamming you.
I went over the fees.
You're getting ripped off.
W-what are you talking about? I Look, anyone can download the DACA application for free.
Filing it is $495.
That lawyer guy is charging you 795.
Let me see this.
Yeah, and he's charging you an expediting fee of $400.
That's not even a thing.
What the hell? Yeah, he's he's taking advantage of you.
Wouldn't be the first time.
I have to go with you.
- No, you-you can't skip school.
- Yeah, I can, okay? This is my future.
I'm coming.
Buenos días, Thony.
Good morning, Julio.
How's my favorite patient doing? Luca's sleeping, eating.
Um, his PELD scores show that his body's not rejecting the liver, so I'm so happy to hear that.
And I saw that your donor, Dara, was discharged from the hospital? Yeah, yes.
This morning.
Uh, she's with Luca right now.
Have a good one.
Thony, before you go, I'm afraid the credit card we have on a file belonging to Arman Morales It was declined.
Really? Um, well, he's-he's gone to the States for business, - but I could - That's okay.
After all you went through, we can certainly comp you a night, but we have another patient arriving tomorrow.
So we'll need you to check out by then.
- I'm sure you understand.
- Of course.
I can recommend some very nice hotels that are close by.
If you like, I could arrange that.
No, thank you.
We're going home.
My turn.
Maybe your turn.
A real latte.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Wait, are you peeking at my hand? No, I'm not.
I saw you.
You're a cheater-weeter.
No, I'm not.
How are you feeling, Dara? Just a little sore, but weirdly good.
Like, I could have been giving pieces of my liver this whole time.
Who knew? I'm happy to hear that.
I'll be right back.
- Hello? - ARMAN: Thony.
Oh my God, Arman.
I thought you were dead.
Are you okay? Yeah, I'm alive.
What happened? Someone tried to blow up my car with me in it.
Where are you now? Somewhere between Vegas and Reno.
I'm laying low until I figure things out.
But Thony, I'm not able to come get you right now.
I-I understand.
Um, what should I do? I have a contact in Tecate who can arrange fake passports for you and Luca.
How is he, by the way? He's doing great.
They're gonna release him soon.
You did it.
No, we did it.
It hadn't been for you bringing us here.
But, um, we're gonna have to check out soon, and your credit card's been declined.
I can't access my money right now, but my guy'll cover the passports, and we have border agents in our back pocket.
I'll text you where you need to go.
I'll be in touch.
That was her, wasn't it? I left Thony and her son stranded in Mexico.
I need help to get them back safe.
That's all.
He got his surgery, her little boy? Yeah, he did.
He's recovering.
He's gonna be all right.
Okay, good.
And now that her kid is gonna be okay, you won't need to help her anymore, will you? We have a second chance, Arman, but you need to put our marriage first.
If you wanna be in my life, you have to cut Thony out of yours.
What's taking so long? Mr.
Jennings has a really busy schedule today.
Next time you might wanna make an appointment.
Um, uh, if you could please tell him again that we're still out here that I already did, twice.
Buenos días.
Martín, por favor? You wait here.
Excuse me, Martín? Um, Arman sent me.
- Thony? - Yes.
You bring your little boy? Mm-Hmm.
He's in the store.
Bring him back.
- Country of origin? - Cambodia for me.
The Philippines for my son.
That's our home.
What about her? She's an American citizen.
She could be the boy's mother.
They don't usually inspect children's passports that carefully after they scan the parent's.
You can put her last name on his passport.
I'll change it now.
Our agent Guillermo Sanchez He's expecting you.
He's in booth number two.
It's his last shift of the week, so if you don't get through, you'll have to wait until next week.
We have to leave today.
I'll be quick.
You have two hours.
His shift ends at noon.
Yeah, that's good to go.
All right.
Move up, please.
Ma'am, please step forward.
No opening yet? This is B.
- What? - That's him, right? It sure is.
Come on.
Hi, Mr.
Remember us? Uh, sure.
Yeah, that's what I thought.
We're your clients.
You promised my son a path to citizenship.
You got my money and then ghosted us.
And you charged us bogus fees, like a DACA expediting fee.
There's no such thing.
So we're going to find another lawyer, and I want my money back.
Why don't we discuss this in my office? Have you even filed any of his paperwork yet? I'd-I'd have to look.
That's a no.
In my business, if you don't work, you don't get paid.
And besides that, I don't want someone representing my son who doesn't give a crap.
Okay? So give me back my money now, or I will take you to court for charging fees for services that were never rendered or, hell, that doesn't even exist.
If you think I won't try me.
I'll issue a refund check.
Let's walk over to billing.
Nice meeting you all.
What's wrong? It looks like you're freaking out.
We have less than ten minutes before the shift change.
Why won't this line move? This group move to lane number three.
Let's go.
Número tres.
Listen, Dara I had Luca's passport made in your last name.
What? Why? Because you're an American citizen.
If you show your passport first, they might not even look at his.
But wait, where are you going to be? Behind you.
If we get separated, you're going without me.
Luca needs to get home to rest.
Okay, here's some money for a car rental.
If you feel tired, there's enough for a hotel tonight.
If you need anything else, just call Fiona.
But if he shows any signs he's not feeling well, you take him to a hospital immediately.
I don't know.
Maybe we should do this another day together.
You gonna be fine, Dara.
You're so good.
So good with him.
Go ahead.
Hey, baby.
It is so boring to wait in line, isn't it? You wanna play a game? - Yeah.
- Yeah? Okay.
So you see that man over there in the booth? Once you get to him, you're gonna pretend Dara is your mommy.
Okay? Why? Because it's a game! And if we get separated, um, we're gonna have to race to see who gets back first, right? - Yeah.
- Okay.
Next! Next.
- Guillermo, you're relieved.
- Okay.
Did you did you stamp the passport? You have two options.
I can call my supervisor over to come look at this, or you can walk away.
Using a forged document is a federal crime.
Mommy! Mommy, Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! - Excuse me.
- Mommy! Mommy.
Mommy! What the hell you doing in Mexico? How do you know that? Let's try this again, huh? I'm Special Agent Garrett Miller, FBI.
You are Thony De La Rosa, my informant, which means you don't even cross the street without me knowing about it.
What are you doing in Mexico? I came here to get a surgery for my son, and it was successful, so don't ask me to apologize, okay? Now I need your help getting back.
Why didn't Arman bring you back? You went with him, right? Can you get me across the border or not? Does Luca need help getting across too? No, it's just me.
Are you safe? Yes.
I just wanna go home.
Let it go quick.
Nope that Try again.
Thony, how are you? Hi.
I'm good.
I'm good.
Luca and Dara are on their way back.
What do you mean? Why aren't you with them? Is that Thony? Let me talk to her.
Dara has an American passport, so she crossed with Luca.
But, uh, but when it was my turn Oh, my God, did they arrest you at the border? No, Fi, let me finish.
Garrett's gonna get me across.
It's gonna be okay.
Let me talk to her.
I can't talk to Marco now.
What's going on, Thony? I was talking to Fiona.
Put it on speaker.
Where are you? I'm still in Mexico, but Luca is on his way home with Dara.
So you're staying in Mexico with him? Your boss? Is that it? I'm stuck here alone, okay? Put Fiona back on.
Whatever you can tell her, you can tell me.
I'll call you later.
No, don't-don't hang up on Anything? Okay.
They can't help you.
Why the hell not? I don't know, Garrett.
Maybe more people than just me are tired of your games.
We have a crucial informant who is stuck in another country.
Will really no one in the Bureau help me get her across? It's nothing to do with the Bureau.
She's on Homeland Security's watch list after that stunt you pulled with your ICE raid.
We have satellite bureaus in Mexico.
Just make a few damn calls, have her escorted across.
What? You.
It's like watching evolution in reverse.
What about getting her an SPBP? She doesn't qualify now because she's deemed for deportation.
I screwed up, okay? Fully own it.
Now can you please get past it and just help me? Look, without Thony's help, we can kiss this case goodbye.
ATF walks away with the guns.
We get nothing.
Facts, Katie.
I'm just stating facts.
I mean, we must have a border liaison who can release the skids and let us cross.
Russo, look at me.
She is crucial to this case.
Without Thony, we are not gonna nab these guys.
You know that.
I'll keep making calls.
So can I head down? As a civilian.
No badge, no gun.
Comprende? Comprende.
No, I don't want you to do this.
This is no way to live, Nadia.
We have no money.
We can't go home.
I have to face Hayak.
He's way too dangerous.
He knows he didn't kill me.
I'm not safe now.
Wherever we go.
Stay here.
I'll be back.
Think about what you're doing.
Oh, I have.
I've been on the road for seven hours.
Still nothing? No one will help? I tried It's too much paperwork for anyone to touch right now.
All right, so what? I'm flying solo? No, you are hanging tight until I can do this through the correct channels.
Okay, great.
He loses everything.
Oh, the look in his eyes.
- Hayak.
- I was Arman.
Mind if we have a word? Sure.
Um, excuse me.
Enjoy yourself.
You okay? Vida, the grandkids.
What are you talking about? Someone tried to kill me, Hayak.
What? Now I'm worried they're coming after you next.
Do you know who it was? I mean, it had to have been Los Norteños.
They wanted to buy a bunch of guns from us, but their offer was just too low.
But you don't have proof.
No, but its fits their M.
Bunch of hotheads couldn't get a simple job done properly.
- Good.
- Lucky for me.
How's Nadia? Is she okay? Yeah, she's worried, but she's okay.
That's terrible.
You know, something good came out of it, Hayak.
I was able to negotiate a higher price for the guns with a new buyer.
I mean, even if you sold these things piecemeal, you could never even get close to 6 million.
You're getting 6? Yeah.
Yeah, that's what I negotiated.
I didn't want to tell you until I had this guy Noah vetted.
He's a survivalist type, but he checked out.
Where are the guns now? They're in a farmhouse.
Hector was watching them.
But I can't get ahold of Carlos.
Have you heard from him? No, I haven't.
Well, I'll, uh, I'll get ahold of Hector, and then I'll reach out to Noah and make sure he is still on board.
Sounds good.
Thank God you're alive, son.
You know, honestly, I've never felt better.
Let's go.
You know what? Um, it's almost 10:00.
I've been driving all day.
Why don't we just get a couple of hotel rooms? I can drive.
Or we leave tomorrow, and you'll be home before dinnertime.
Luca just had a liver transplant.
He needs to be closely monitored by a doctor, which is me Let's go.
I'm sorry, I should have told you about leaving the country.
Well, let's not rehash it.
We've all done some things.
Oh no, I can keep my bags up front with me.
Oh, no, it's not It's not for your bags.
It's for you.
- What? - Yeah.
I mean, if you want to go now, that's the best that I can do.
My badge means nothing down here.
I been working on this all day so has my supervisor.
And honestly, it's gonna take more than a day to go through the proper channels to get you across.
A whole bunch of departments have to sign off on me getting you back, all right? So please, please just be patient and give me a couple of days to get you across through the proper channels.
Luca's immune system is still fragile.
I need to be there with him.
If anything goes wrong, I have to be there.
Can't your husband or your sister-in-law take him to the doctor if something happens? You don't get it.
I am the doctor.
- I'll do it.
- Okay, okay.
Whoa, whoa, stop.
Wait, okay, just Just let me think.
I'll do it.
Okay, I-I know.
You know, I've been back and forth across this border over a dozen times, and I've never had a problem, but this is crazy, even for me.
Get in.
What are you gonna say if they find me? Whoops.
How'd she get in here? Sorry about the smell.
I keep my gym clothes back here.
Buenas noches.
Don't flash me your credentials.
I asked for your passport.
My mistake.
You're in Mexico on FBI business? No, no.
Just a day trip.
Just picking up some maracas for the kids.
Ate at that, um, what is that, Tía Maria's Café? Just love it down here.
That place rips off tourists.
Yeah, tell me about it.
You got any firearms in the car? No, sir.
Unless my kid's water pistols count.
I'm gonna have you pull over to secondary.
It's right over there.
Look, man, I gotta report back to the field office.
We really gotta do all this? Hmm? Come on, I'm a fellow man of the shield.
We'll make it quick.
Just pull over.
All right.
Would you pop the trunk, sir? Excuse me, officer.
Can I speak to your supervisor? Easy, boy.
Pop the trunk.
Can you step out of the car, please? We have a woman in the back.
I can explain.
Are you all right? Do you speak English? Are you okay? Yeah.
Sir, go ahead, pull it over here.
Right over there.
What's gonna happen to me? I'm sure my boss or whoever's on their way down.
They'll vouch for us, then we'll be released.
When? Tomorrow.
Fingers crossed.
When do I get a call? Thony, in case you hadn't noticed, I'm behind the same set of bars you are.
I need to tell my family what's going on.
Your husband too? How much you tell him? Hmm? You tell him about Arman? About me? Yeah, that's what I thought.
Nadia? Nadia.
What happened? Did you see Hayak? - Yeah.
- And? I told him I thought it was the Norteños who tried to kill me.
He believed you? Well, he believed there was still $6 million to be made if we sold those guns to Noah.
Once he heard that, nothing else mattered.
So all the money we've worked for goes to Hayak? Again? God, is that all you care about? Coming clean on this deal is the only thing that's keeping me alive.
Everything I do, I do for you.
Even after all those lies about going to Mexico with her.
I'm sorry.
Look, we make this deal with Noah, we'll leave Vegas like we planned.
We'll start new lives.
Oh, my God, Thony, where are you? I've been held at the border.
God Are you okay? What happened to Garrett? He's in the cell with me.
What? Everything's gonna be okay.
We just don't know when we're gonna be released.
I need you to reach out to Dara in the morning.
Just make sure they're okay.
You're my one call, Fi.
What do I tell Marco? Um, nothing.
I'll deal with Marco when I'm home.
I'll call you as soon as I'm out.
Mahal kita.
Mahal kita, okay? Be safe.
Tell me what? What's going on? Luca and Dara will be here this morning, and Thony's still working on getting back.
Everything's gonna be okay.
No, it's not.
Just please just don't wake up the kids.
You're my sister.
You should be telling me what's going on.
Thony said she'll be home soon, all right? - This isn't her home! - Just Home is in Manila with me! With nanay and tatay.
You remember them, Fiona? You couldn't get out fast enough, but you gave our parents nothing but trouble.
I left for a lot of reasons, and one is the way tatay spoke to me like the way you're talking to me now.
Drinking and running around with boys from the time - you were Jaz's age.
- Don't.
You left our home for your big American dream, but look at your life, Fi.
Your son, a TNT, just like you.
You can't go home to see your own pamilya.
This isn't home.
It's a prison, and you deserve it.
Shut up.
Just shut up, Marco.
Hey, just This is adult talk, Chris, not your business.
Yeah, it is.
You don't talk to her that way.
Not in our home.
Marco, go.
You awake? Yeah.
Did you sleep at all? I wouldn't call that sleep, no.
I know you and Arman have been feeding me false information.
It's a dangerous game you're playing, Thony.
What is it that you're doing? Why are you doing all this? And don't tell me again it's because he helped your kid.
I-I know all that.
I just want to know how a good person like you can just willingly help a bad guy like Arman.
I don't get it.
Do you really say that? Good guy? Bad guy? Yeah.
Yeah, it's pretty cut and dry.
A guy like Arman who traffics guns and murders people.
It's the definition of a bad guy.
Mm-hmm, well, I think it's more complicated than that.
No, no, it's not, actually.
You just convinced yourself it is so you can justify your part in it.
I'm not part of anything, okay? I didn't ask for any of this.
I came here for my son.
No, I get that, Thony, I do.
I'm a parent as well.
- Yeah! - Yeah, but so is Theo.
But now his daughter's without a father.
So don't act like you've been taking the moral high ground here.
What you're doing is wrong.
I tried to do things the right way.
By the rules.
Got me nowhere.
All anyone cared about was that if my son was born here.
Because he's not American, he doesn't have the same chances.
But I guess it's a little hard for you to get your head around that.
What, you-you think I'm just sort of this what White privileged American? Yeah.
Aren't you? You don't know me, all right? You know nothing about me.
I came from nothing with a scumbag of a dad who shot and killed a clerk in a convenience store.
So at an early age, I had to make a choice.
Was I gonna be him? Or was I gonna be a good guy? You know what, Thony? Wasn't that complicated of a choice.
You go ahead.
Are we getting out? Looks like it.
Told you they'd sort it out.
Put your hands in front of you.
Thank you.
What's wrong? What are you doing? Thony De La Rosa, you have the right to remain silent.
What? - Anything you say - Garrett.
Can and will be used against you in a court of law.
You have the right to an attorney.
If you do not have one, one will be appointed to you.
You are being charged with the following: 18 USC 1001.
Katherine, what are you doing, huh? What's going on? Obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting a known criminal - What? - Conspiracy.
This is Dave DePaul.
He oversees Homeland Security along the California-Mexico border.
De La Rosa, you've been marked for deportation, but first, you will face these charges, including illegal re-entry, title 8 USC 1326 after you've been ordered to be removed.
Now, wait a minute.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, Katherine.
- Garett! - This is ridiculous, Katie.
Come on! What is this, huh? Hey, no! Hey, you need to explain this to me right now.
You're facing termination, Garrett, and I'm sorry, but after you decided to smuggle her across the border, you took this out of my hands.
And now I'm taking back control.
Armando, please come here.
Get back.
Get back.
Carlos! Luca's home.
Where's Mommy?
