- What? Yeah.
- You just missed him.
You just missed him. Yeah.
I thought he was coming down to work.
- He doesn't work here.
- No.
Well, he kind of does now.
He probably went to his office.
Oh, but he said "down,"
like downstairs.
I mean, his office is up north
I don't know, he just, he left,
wasn't trying to stick around.
Oh, uh, would you
would you like some?
Uh, D doesn't want any.
- She's not hungry.
- Yeah, I-I'm full.
- I'm good. Are we gonna open up?
- Yeah, we are.
- Just, uh, I'll be out in a sec.
- Okay.
You're gonna open up the shop?
Yeah, 'cause I'm gonna leave
him in here for a little bit
- until I figure out
- What?
Is that Jonah's phone?
I don't know. Is it?
That's weird.
Yeah, it is fucking weird, huh?
No, it's not weird, man.
I leave my phone places all the time.
But you don't have a phone.
D Now you know why I
don't have a phone.
- He-he-he did stop by and say hi to us
- Yeah.
- before he left.
- Yeah.
- To go out. To us.
- He did.
To For work.
- He'll probably come back for it.
- Yeah, for sure.
Yeah. Okay
Hey, how's Sophia?
She's good. I just talked
to her this morning.
She sounds really good.
I'm gonna go see her during lunch.
That's really great, Nellie.
Yeah. I know.
Okay. Time to open up.
Jonah was a good kid.
He didn't deserve that.
Neither does Nellie. And now
we got another body,
and we can't stay here, buy-out or not.
Oh, I called Jonah's office,
they said he still wasn't there yet.
Girl, it's been, like, five
seconds, really, though.
He stayed over last night.
I'm a horrible,
horrible person.
He probably forgot his phone
'cause he ain't never had it like that.
Clearly, he wasn't thinking.
He probably wasn't thinking,
that's probably
Who's Luis talking to?
I don't know, some pig.
Gosh, I'm just really surprised
anybody could think that.
Yeah, we're gonna have to go.
I mean, Empanada Loca's
a family-owned business.
We've been the foundation
of this community
for over 30 years.
Actually, yeah, we're all that's left.
I stand behind everything that
goes on behind those doors.
So, then, how come I haven't
seen Marcie since she went down
to see her?
I don't know
what Marcie coming by
for a massage has to do with you
thinking we're selling marijuana.
Okay, she came down here to
check out the competition,
then she disappeared.
Marcie's still dealing?
Shit, I thought she outgrew
that in her 30s.
Okay, time to cut the shit,
bro, or the next call I make
is gonna be to my buddies in the DEA.
Now, you paying her off or what?
Am I paying her off?
Papa, I'm not paying anybody off.
Well, maybe you're gonna have to.
Oh I got you.
I got you, bro. Yeah.
This is a shakedown, right?
You're not getting Marcie's payoff,
so you're coming here for mine.
Well, go ahead, bring all
your DEA buddies down here,
they can search the whole place.
- We'll give them some empanadas
- Luis.
and some massages
while they're here.
- Luis, come on.
- They will never be the same.
You know, come to think of it,
maybe, uh, maybe
you would like a nice massage, huh?
You seem a little tense,
bro, no offense.
No, thank you.
Suit yourself.
- Something's not right here.
- Yeah?
Don't know what that is.
You just gonna stand out here?
All right, man. Do your thing.
Yeah, go ahead. Go.
- You check that guy?
- Come on, Luis.
Come on, stop.
Not today, Jeremiah.
Come on. Let's go downstairs.
- Nellie, we'll be right back, all right?
- Okay
- Get the fuck downstairs, all right?
- Ah !
Shut up.
We got to go. We got to go. Come on.
- Wait, what?
- We got to, we got to pack
- immediately. Let's go, let's go.
- Wait, why?
Why? That's your question?
Because of the dead landlord's
dead son in the freezer
and because of the dirty cop
that's outside trying to shake you down?
Read the room, man,
we got to, we got to go.
Well, he's just talking shit.
He's not gonna do anything yet.
Wh-What? So, what are you,
what are you gonna do?
You're gonna wait until you get
another offer on the business?
And then you're gonna keep making
fucking Muy Loco empanadas?
I mean, look, we're
hiding in plain sight.
No more people empanadas. Did
We do have money, we do.
We have your 15K, and then we have
the money that I have.
That's not enough to
buy a house in Colorado.
- Mami, that's only 15K.
- Luis!
I'm not trying to buy
a house in Colorado.
I'm trying not to spend
my fucking life in prison.
- But where would we even go now?
- I don't fucking know, man.
We could just go the subway tunnel,
- I don't know, we'll figure it out.
- You want to live like that?
No, I don't. I don't want
to live like that,
but this shit is not sustainable.
This is not Look, look,
we were already gonna go
anyway, right? We
It's just the money,
that's the only thing
that's changed, we don't have the money.
- We were still gonna go.
- Look.
Everything's changed.
Everything's changed. I mean,
I-I know you had to do Jonah like that,
but, you know, I'm not mad,
but we were gonna leave
'cause he was gonna go ahead
and take Empanada Loca.
- "Was."
- If we leave now, if we leave now,
- that's it.
- "Was" was the thing.
It's all gonna be wiped out, okay?
Everything I've had, my whole legacy,
everything that I have. I was born here.
I was literally born right
here on this fucking floor.
We-we have a great time here, okay?
You have fun, right?
Mm, it's like the perfect kind of
Oh, shit.
Oh, you tried this shit?
This strain's called
Trainwreck, it is
- Wow.
- Luis.
This is a trainwreck.
All of this is a fucking trainwreck.
I don't give I'm fucking leaving.
You do whatever the fuck you want to do.
Wait. Wait, wait, wait, wait,
wait, wait, wait. Okay?
Please, please, wait. Okay.
You win. You win.
Okay? But listen,
if we were to leave right this second,
that's gonna look suspicious, okay?
We got to, we got to divert
some attention, okay?
'Cause we got to buy
ourselves some time first.
How are we gonna do that?
I got an idea.
I got an idea. I swear to
you, I got an idea.
Just-just got to give me some more time,
Give me some more time.
- Some more time, okay?
- We got to leave today, Luis.
- Okay
- Today is the day
that we got to l-leave.
What are you doing?
- Where are you going?
- I'm gonna,
I'm gonna take care of it.
- I got it. I got it.
- What are you doing?
I'm gonna give you an hour, tops, Luis.
- That's it.
- Trust me, mami.
Trust me, all right?
Oh, yeah, I trust him.
I trust him to fuck shit up even more.
But I still need him
'cause he's the only one
who would never throw me under the bus.
Human beings are full of shit,
but this table has never let me down.
You took care of it that quick, huh?
- Joy.
- Took care of what?
Uh, no, um, y-you know what?
It's, um, now's really
it's really not a good
Not a good time. It's never
a good time with you,
- is it, Dolores?
- Joy, please.
It's just that I pulled my neck again.
I think it's stress.
Oh, my God, really? I-I Am I on mute?
- I really
- No chiropractor's as good
as you, not that I can
afford a chiropractor.
No, I can't I can't
deal with this right now.
The My table is not even up.
- You-you have to go.
- Why, what's going on?
What's going on is you have to go, okay?
No, no, wait a minute, wait a minute.
You're being incredibly rude.
I'm your friend.
I tried to get you a job
when you showed up from
prison with nothing,
which completely destroyed my
relationship with my sister,
and we haven't spoken
in weeks because of you.
And still, I got you so many clients,
so many people, they were
waiting for their laundry.
"Hey, you got 30 minutes?
You got to go next door
and see Magic Hands."
And you're good,
but you're not the Second Coming, okay?
They all just went to see
you because I sent them,
because I tell the truth,
and people like me,
and I have good taste,
and-and you-you-you just treat
me like I'm some sort of a
You know what?
I should charge you commission.
You don't want to help me
when I come to you in pain,
then ten percent.
Fine, turn around. Turn around
right now. You got 30 seconds.
- Okay. Right, right.
- You got 30 seconds.
- Where is it?
- Right here. Right here. So tight.
- Okay.
- Yes. Exactly
Just be quiet, please, Joy. Just
- Oh. I'm sorry I snapped at you.
- No, it's fine, it's fine.
It's fine. Shh.
Please, I just want you to
be fucking quiet, all right?
Real friends got to
tell you the hard truth.
- Joy, you really need to shut the fuck up.
- The hard truth, Dolores,
is that you can be so mean,
- so very mean.
- Mean? I'm mean?
I think you should start
I liked Joy,
but she was in the wrong
place at the wrong time.
Oh, fuck.
Oh, fuck.
Fuck, fuck, fuck.
We got to go.
Fuck. We got to go. We got to go.
- Luis? Luis?
- And she said she'd come
- right back to the hotel?
- And she said
she was gonna bring us
back some empanadas!
And you haven't
heard from her since?
- No. She didn't even call in sick.
- This is a woman
that's never missed a matinee
since She Loves Me in 1993,
and that was only because
she got shoved onto the subway tracks.
Ruthie survived the third rail,
and even then, she called!
- Hmm. That's odd.
- Okay, so here's what's really weird
Hey, Nellie, can I talk
to you for a second?
- Um
- Hi. How you doing? I just We're
- Uh
- I just need her for
- One second.
- Just a few seconds, guys.
- Just a little bit.
- I'll be right back.
I just have a-a question
that I wanted to ask.
Um what's going on?
Okay, so, listen to this.
Jonah hasn't shown up at his office yet.
Oh, my God, girl. Hasn't
even been an hour yet.
You really just got to relax.
I know, but first,
his father disappeared,
and then this woman.
Well, his father didn't
really disappear, though,
'cause his father texted
him, though, right?
Only once. Not since then.
And the woman who was looking
for them, she disappeared.
At least, that's what
they're saying out there.
What? What do they say?
Why are you listening to those people?
Oh, my God. Do you think it's the Mob?
- What?
- Does the Mob still exist?
Yes, the Mob still exists.
It's not the Mob, Nellie.
No, it's just
I don't know what it is.
I don I don't know what it is.
I don't, but everything is fine, okay?
Everything is fine.
I don't think it's fine!
It may not be fine!
Sometimes things are not fine.
When my mom went to prison,
that was not fine.
And when she went to prison
before that, that was not fine.
And I just want to know
if something's not fine,
- before something hap Uh
- Okay.
I don't want anything to
happen to you or Luis.
Can we just go back to work?
Please? Please?
I swear everything is gonna
be okay, I-I promise.
It's gonna be fine, okay?
- I mean, we can't do anything about this.
- Okay.
So let's just Like, we'll go
back to work, all right?
- Okay. All right.
- Okay.
She trusts me.
I'm a monster.
Worse, I'm real.
Is there any slight, like,
fraction of a chance
he didn't do something stupid?
That'd be too stupid
even for him, right?
Was that like that before?
I can't wait for him.
I'm getting my shit,
and I'm getting out of here.
- and all this debt.
- Mm-hmm.
And then he was getting
these weird text messages,
- and nothing.
- Not Like, not at all?
- Nothing?
- Not at all.
- That's shady.
- And that's not like him.
- What if he became a monk?
- No.
She figured it out?
- What?
- Joy figured it out?
No, she didn't.
Sh-She saw something?
Or why-why'd you have to go and ?
'Cause I'm on a fucking bender, man,
and we got to go.
And I'm leaving with or without you.
Wait, wait, wait. Why?
Come on, Luis.
We already had this conversation.
I got to do something with this first.
Mami, I got a plan.
I really wish you'd trust me!
Why would I trust you? Why?
You've made everything worse.
- I've been looking out for you, okay?
- Don't! I don't need
a 30-something, sweaty,
tampon-stealing cannibal
who reeks of adobo and aceite
and wouldn't have anybody
else to go down on
if Dominic hadn't fucked
my life apart 16 years ago
to make decisions for
me anymore. Thank you.
You are fucking mean.
That is so fucking mean.
Yeah? Then I'm fucking mean.
Who gives a shit?
I also killed six fucking people.
That doesn't bother you?
And I just killed Joy!
Jesus, why did I kill Joy?
Yeah, I didn't really see
that coming at all.
- Fuck did I kill Joy?
- I-I didn't see that
- I didn't see that coming at all.
- Why the fuck did I
Oh, shit!
Yo, that came quick. Damn.
The Five-O coming! ♪
Dolores. Dolores!
- Nellie, wait!
- Help me!
- Nellie!
- The Oh!
That worked out even
better than I thought. Nice.
I was just gonna buy us some time,
but now it's off of us.
We can really stay here now.
And thanks to Magic
Hands' latest delivery,
we'll even have fresh
Muy Loca tonight.
What did you do?
Yo, with Sophia gone, perfect timing.
Just hoisted it all up from
the fire escape with a rope.
- Oh, my God.
- Physics in action, baby.
- I even called in a tip.
- Oh, my God.
"Oh, uh, I think, uh I think I know
where the bodies wound up."
Easy feasy.
- How could you do that to Nellie?
- Yo, come on.
She's the reason why Jonah
was hanging around here
- in the first place.
- No, she's not the reason. I'm the reason
- he was hanging out here. I'm the reason!
- Oh, whatever.
She's young. She's young.
She can do something with
her life when she gets out.
Get out? Luis,
you don't get out when
you chop people up.
Especially someone like Nellie.
You think the system was bad on me?
How could you do that?
Uh, how could I?
Motherfuckers around here
are getting their fucking necks snapped.
I think Nellie made it out A-okay.
Plus, we're safe now, mami. Come on.
No, we're not safe.
They are gonna now search
every inch of this building.
You have, once again,
made it worse.
Well, what was I ? What the
fuck was I supposed to do?!
You were supposed to stop me!
Anybody, somebody, was
supposed to stop me!
I could have really been happy here,
like, with you.
Me doing my massages,
you doing your thing upstairs.
I never wanted a house in Colorado, man.
I just wanted
to have a normal, simple life
and be a normal, simple person.
But I got to be this person instead.
Like, all this today.
Like, always this
particular time of day?
I got to go.
I'm gonna come with you.
Let me get my shit real quick.
Oh, too late.
- Come on.
- What? Jeremiah.
Come on, Dolores. Let's go. Come on.
I got my truck out back. It's running.
Let's go.
What the fuck is he even doing here?
- Oh. Stop. Luis.
- Oh! I know everything.
- What?
- I know what you're making her do
I know what you do
You don't know a goddamn thing.
I know what's in those empanadas!
- What the fuck are you talking about?
- I know what you did
to yourself, and I know
what you did to Ariel!
- To my father?
- He always knew you had
a screw loose, but you knew
he knew it, too. That's why
- you left him down here to rot!
- You don't know one
You don't know the first
thing about me or my dad,
so why don't you shut the fuck up?
- He was my friend!
- He wasn't your fucking friend, bro.
You're a fucking pendejo.
He felt sorry for you
because you're fucking crazy.
Even before your fucking dead wife,
or before your fucking
conspiracy theorist bullshit.
And nobody believes a
goddamn word you fucking say!
- I'm not crazy.
- Yeah.
- I'm not crazy.
- Yeah?
Where the bodies at?!
- Jeremiah, wait! Jeremiah!
- Where they at?
- Keep look, man. Keep looking.
- Let's just go!
- Where the bodies at?!
- Let's go! - You're not gonna
- find shit, you fucking psycho.
- Where the bodies at?!
- Where the bodies at?!
- You ain't gonna find shit,
- you fucking psycho!
- Jeremiah, it was me!
Where they at?!
Wait! Stop it!
- Guys, stop it.
- You're a monster!
He's choking! He's choking!
Look at him. No. Let me go!
- No!
- He's choking! He's choking!
- He's fucking choking!
- No!
- Christ, look at him. He's choking!
- No. Stop!
Help him! Stop it!
You got to help him.
Get him! Come on!
Jeremiah? Jeremiah?!
Oh, my God.
Why did you make me do that?!
It would been more fucking
humane to kill him!
I'm a pacifist! Look what
you turned me into!
Stay away from me.
- I'm sorry. I didn't mean that.
- Get away from me, Luis!
No. I'm coming with you.
No, you're not fucking coming with me!
I don't ever want to see you
or your fucking waffle
crotch ever again.
Listen, mami,
- I'm gonna help you. I'm gonna help you.
- No.
Get away from me.
Get the fuck away from me!
But Dolores, you're the love
of my life. You're the love
- of my life. I love you.
- Don't you fucking
- touch me!
- You're the love of my life.
- Get away from me!
- I'll help you. So let me. So let me.
- Can't leave without me!
- Aah!
What is No, no!
- Get away from me! Get away from me!
- No, no, no, no!
- No! You can't go. No, you can't go. You can't.
- Let me go!
You can't go. No, we're too good to go.
- You're too good.
- Let me go!
- Let me go! Please!
- We're too good.
- Stay with me, mami.
- Let me go.
Stay with me. Stay with me.
Come on. Stay with me, mami.
Please don't go.
Don't go. Don't go. Please don't go.
don't go. Please don't go.
Please don't go. Please don't go.
Please don't go.
Don't go.
Oh. Oh, oh.
Deep fried, like everybody else.
Ah, shit!
Fuck. Fuck! I don't know
how to fucking drive!
In a truck full of raw meat.
So that's how you burned your hand?
Yeah. That's how.
And then what?
And then I spent four years on
the lam, looking for Dominic,
trying to put all this shit behind me.
Meanwhile, my name's on a marquee
like Jack the Uptown Ripper.
I thought you were dead.
We all thought you were dead.
And and I believed what
I heard about you,
that you were some deranged monster,
- that you
- No, no, no, but you were right.
- I am.
- No.
- Yeah.
- You're a victim
- of circumstance.
- No. You were right all along.
- You're a vigilante!
- Were you not paying attention?
But you had to do it.
You had to do all of those things!
- You were right all along!
- You had to do it.
You had to do all of it.
I didn't, though, did I?
I didn't.
And you want to know something else?
I came here tonight to do it again.
To me?
Maybe not.
To whoever gets in my way,
or might get in my way,
or rubs me the wrong way.
Or is just in the wrong
place at the wrong time.
Man, you said it yourself,
and you were right about me.
You're right.
I can't stop.
Okay, Caleb,
people are saying that you, like,
made Dolores a human
being with this play,
like, even more than the podcast.
You know, you took this, like,
evil serial killer lady,
and you made her a heroine!
I am going to make
her into a TV show next.
Did you see Jason Blum here?
- Okay, excuse me. He's on fire.
- I know.
I'm gonna grab my coat,
and then I'll meet you outside?
- Okay, okay.
- Okay.
Would you like a massage?
Oh, fuck, no!
Motherfucker, really?
A podcast about my fucking life?!
And now a Broadway play?
- Dominic!
- Yeah, where's my check, bitch?
- Dominic. Dominic!
- Where the fuck is my check?!
- Dominic.
- What? What?!
What'd you say?
- Aah. Dominic.
- What'd you say?
I can help you find
Dominic if you let me go.
You know where Dominic is?
- Aah! I know someone who does.
- Yeah?
You want to live another day to
record another shitty podcast?
You take me to that person
right motherfucking now.
Whose house is this?
I think I think you should just
I'm gonna go inside that house,
and when I come back out,
your ass had better still be here,
or else I will hunt you down
and finish shoving that mic
so far down your throat,
we'll be able to do an
interview with your colon.
Okay, but your-your hair looks
amazing like that.
Like, it's it's, like, hot.
It's, like Like, it real,

It's, like, really cute.
That volume, and Okay.
