Twisted s01e16 Episode Script

The Son Also Falls

Previously on Twisted There's been a car accident.
It's Vikram.
- I'm sorry but he's dead.
- A car crash? Someone moved his body, put him in that car, I mean is someone trying to protect us? - I think you should ask her to homecoming.
- Who? Andie? This is one of the greatest nights of my life.
This is probably one of the greatest nights of my life too.
Your father had a life insurance policy, for $10 million.
He had set up a trust, in Danniel's name.
Your father left the money to you.
I know who moved the body.
It was my mom.
We could go skip stones on the Hudson.
Live a little.
Before Jo, I had another baby.
Vikram found a family to adopt.
- Where is this child? - I don't know.
It's like you're more tortured than ever.
I'm fine, Lacey.
You need to tell someone.
You're right.
I do.
You know.
You know I killed dad.
You took the blame for him.
For Tara's murder.
All those years.
When I heard he was alive, I just I just wanted to talk to him.
Confront him but what he put me through you had him come to that church.
And then he attacked Jo.
Somebody somebody must have moved the body.
Staged that car crash to make it look like an accident.
At first we thought it was somebody trying to protect us, but if it's not you, mom, then somebody knows.
Kyle closed the case.
He concluded it was an accident, and you and Jo are in the clear.
And that person, they haven't come forward.
They haven't asked for anything.
That's what made us think that it might be you.
Maybe with Jack's help.
Jack Oh, my God.
Why would he do that for me? He would do it for me.
If I'd have known, I would have done it myself.
I I killed him, mom.
I killed Stop it! He went after you.
After Jo.
And he sent you to juvie.
I'm glad he's dead, and you should be too.
I feel like I'm in a nightmare, and I just I just can't wake up.
Well, it ends now.
Jack did us a huge favor.
How can you be so sure it's Jack? Trust me.
I'm sure.
I will deal with it.
This nightmare's finally over.
And you're free.
You skip a mean stone, Masterson.
I haven't done that since I was little.
Still got it.
So what other skills have you been keeping secret? Wait, don't tell me.
You were on your way to becoming a brilliant trapeze artist, but life got in the way.
Uh No, um, I really don't like heights, actually.
What do you like? Come on.
I want to know.
I don't know.
There's there's really nothing too exotic here.
It's just Jo.
We'll see about that.
Night, just Jo.
What's wrong? Jo, I told my mom what happened at the ravine.
You did what? I was positive that it was her that moved the body, but it's not.
Wait, Danny It's okay.
She's on our side.
And and she's sure it's Jack.
She thinks that he helped us because he has feelings for her.
So so he won't say anything, right? We don't have to worry about it anymore.
Look, I I believe my mom.
I think it's over.
I don't know.
I hope so.
Yeah, me too.
'Cause I've been thinking.
Uh This secret, this whole thing has really just taken over my life.
And if it's over, I I really want to get back on track.
I agree.
We gotta figure out a way to move on.
Um What is it? I think I just need to figure some stuff out on my own.
Figure out who I am with without Me? Did you talk to Jo? Uh, yes.
She seemed very happy about it.
That's good.
The last thing we need is her running to her mom and dad.
She wouldn't do that.
I don't think she even wants to talk about it.
She's absolutely right.
What are you going to do about Jack? Find a way to bring it up without bringing it up.
I'm assuming he had a reason for not telling.
Probably to keep us blameless if anyone found out.
You need to focus on settling back into school.
- And Lacey - Lacey? What am I going to do lie to her face? Well, it's not lying.
It's withholding the truth.
Just like Jack's doing.
And it's for her own good.
I just want to start on a new track.
Good, good.
Let's start building that track.
Oh, well you're smart.
You've got excellent grades.
But that's all I have to show for my high-school career.
You should certainly be proud of your GPA.
But colleges are looking for self-starters.
Well, I'm here.
Isn't that a start? Yes, it is.
Good point.
Bravo, Jo.
Well, I could join a club.
My friend Rico was in the mathletes.
Or I could try theater again.
I did a I did a sobriety awareness skit once when I was Ah, to be blunt, it's too little too late, I'm afraid.
It's going to look like you're a last-minute joiner.
See, colleges they want to see passion.
They want leaders.
Yes, exactly.
You are hiding your light under a bushel, Jo.
You you have to let it shine.
Starting now.
Next! Lizzy, come on in.
So I completed community service this weekend.
And I organized a pep assembly the day after regionals.
I like totally shed my bushel.
Dudes, it's all about the platform.
And mine's pizza.
You love it.
I love it.
So let's do it.
Student body president.
That guy is a total joke.
Right? This school has like legit issues.
And pizza makes me break out.
Hello? Jack? Can I help you? Uh I was, uh, just looking for Jack.
I didn't realize he had Um, well, company.
You're way hotter than his usual customers.
Whitney? Hi, Karen.
Wow, you've you've grown.
Miracle of boobs.
Who are you talking to? Karen.
So, dad, is Karen going to be my new mom? Whitney please, babe.
Sorry, I didn't know you were coming over.
No, I'm sorry.
I didn't realize you had your daughter visiting you.
Yeah, it was a surprise to me too.
Wow, student body president.
You don't believe in baby steps, do you? Wait, aren't the election speeches like tomorrow? Yeah, but there's no rule against signing up late.
I just I just really wanted to do something different.
- But - Yeah, I think that You think it's too much, right? Yeah, I mean, who would even vote for me? Jo, stop.
I think it's awesome.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
And I think that we have a lot of work to do.
Student body president.
All right.
I know.
Can you believe it? What? Wait, how do you know? That I'm running for president? Duh, her posters are all over school.
Her campaign manager is killing it.
This guy.
Yeah, I guess I just haven't been paying attention.
Jo's actually running too.
That's funny.
What? Yeah, I just I kind of just signed up.
I just wanted to participate, you know.
But I didn't realize that you were because - I wouldn't have - No.
Jo, that's the spirit of democracy, right? You'd be so good.
May the best woman win.
We should go plan campaign strategy.
- All right.
- First order of business do we get you a snappy pantsuit? Obviously.
So, um I am totally screwed for this history test.
I've been trying to find you all day - for a study session, but - I've been avoiding you? So I wasn't just imagining that, huh? I don't want to talk to you until you start being honest with me.
I know something happened.
I know I'm not wrong about this.
Hey okay, okay.
Something did happen.
Um I saw my dad.
What? When? The night that I ran away.
I saw him, and I tried to convince him to turn himself in.
And then we fought, and he got into a car accident.
Yeah, I just I just wish things had turned out differently.
Because if you had turned him in, maybe he'd still be alive? Yeah, maybe something like that.
Danny, no, you can't think like that.
You didn't do anything wrong.
I just I messed up.
I always mess everything up.
And I was just trying to protect you.
Danny, you don't have to be alone in this, okay? Does, um does Jo know? No.
No, and I don't want her to, okay? I'm just tired of burdening people with my problems.
Danny, what? It's not a burden.
God, I'm your girlfriend.
I'm so happy you finally told me the truth.
I want to stay here.
You got kicked out of boarding school, again.
Dad! Please! I know I messed up.
I'm sorry.
I want to stay here.
Your mother has custody, Whitney.
You can stay here until she gets back from Europe.
Then back to the city.
I only have the outfit I came here in.
And it's totally gross by now.
I will take you shopping to the fashion farm tomorrow.
Farm? Are you s you can't.
Karen, help.
I don't want to get in the middle of anything.
Fashion farm.
Well, my son loves to remind me that I have more clothes than one woman could possibly ever wear, so Karen.
Okay? Thank you.
Please, it's the least I could do.
You probably came by for a reason.
Uh it can wait.
Coffee's brewing, so We'll talk later.
If "talk" is a code word, it's not a very good one.
And I don't do home brew.
Kyle, I just really feel like we should talk about this.
You had years to talk, but instead you just pretended it never even happened.
I've thought about that child every day.
How she grew up, what she became.
But you never talked to me about it.
You just kept it to yourself.
I know.
I know it was wrong.
I just What, Tess? Just say it.
I wanted you to have the perfect family.
Perfect? That is the last thing we are.
Yeah, so I have a lot of ideas about the campaign speech.
I think we can really lay out Hey, honey.
Hi, I'm Jo's mom.
It's nice to meet you, Mrs.
Masterson, Mr.
Uh, I I'm Charlie.
Nice to meet you.
You're welcome to stay for dinner, Charlie.
Oh, thank you, but I actually have to work later.
Oh, okay.
Come on.
Let's go up to my room.
What is she thinking? Jo's never been interested in student government or activities in general.
I just don't know where this is coming from.
She has a right to run, Rico.
It's just I'm not sure if I still should.
Andie, you're the smartest, nicest, most environmentally conscious girl I've ever met.
And you're totally hot.
I mean, you could win on intellect alone even if you had like a paper bag over your head.
That may be the only way I get through this speech.
I'm so nervous about it.
Hey, maybe you could write some jokes for me? You're so funny.
Well, I have been told that before.
Thanks, Rico.
I'll be right back.
So, studly, another girl? The girl.
My girlfriend, Andie.
She thinks I'm really funny, so she wants me to write her speech for her.
So keep the java flowing.
Freshen up Hillary's too? Oh, her name's Oh.
That's good.
Use it.
It's on the house.
I can't just run on anti-pizza.
I mean, I actually like pizza.
Who doesn't like pizza? The guy might be a genius.
No, no.
I have chem with that dude.
Trust me, he's not a genius.
Let's just work on the speech.
That's what counts, right? Okay.
I mean, no one really decides who to vote for until the assembly anyway.
Well, then good thing that you are smart, extremely likeable, and you have a killer smile.
Sorry, compliments make me really weird.
Um Let's just finish this before you have to start your shift, okay? Yeah.
Yeah, it was really nice of your mom to invite me to stay.
Sorry that I have to go to work.
And miss out on a super awkward dinner? They're obviously fighting.
I mean, I don't want to talk about it.
I'm tired of even thinking about it.
Let's just can we just work on the campaign? Whatever you say, Khaleesi.
Working hard, champ? Are you surprised to see me? You must be, considering you killed me.
Not quite so easy to get rid of me though, is it? What are you doing here? It's my house, Danny.
I see you're pretending that everything is fine, but you and I both know you'll never be fine.
You can make it easier though.
You have a ticket out.
$10 million.
You see, I know from experience that money can buy happiness.
Better yet, it can help to keep the demons at bay.
This is so school spirit-y of you.
You gonna join the cheerleading squad next? Rah-rah.
Just vote for me, okay? Why are you here so early anyway? Um, well, I'm supposed to be studying for a huge history test, but I can't can't focus.
I keep thinking about What? I'm worried about him, and I feel like he's being way too hard on himself.
Danny? Jo He told me that he saw his dad before he died.
And they got into some fight.
Anyway, he thinks that he's to blame for for his dad getting in that car accident.
That's what he said? Yeah.
Um, Jo, I think that there's a lot more that he's not telling me.
Yeah, well, it sounds like the same old Danny to me.
I'm sorry, I just I can't.
I have too much on my plate.
I have to go.
Karen, you're saving my life.
My dad's not afraid of anything, except maybe malls and shopping.
You know, I remember you spent a lot of time here when you were younger with your dad.
Most summers.
I loved it.
Getting to hang out with him on his boats.
He just made me feel so safe, you know? Yeah.
He's that kind of guy, isn't he? Which is why I don't know if I should say anything to him.
About what? My mom's boyfriend kind of, um, came on to me a couple of times.
What? What do you mean? He just says things.
Walks right into my bedroom without knocking.
Did anything happen? No.
Nothing happened.
You need to tell your father this.
I don't know.
I mean, I've already caused enough trouble.
Whitney, listen to me.
We need to tell your dad right now.
He'll take care of it.
I know he will.
Pencils down.
Bring 'em up.
You didn't want to ask for an extension or something? It's too late.
On the plus side, I'm flunking this class already, so no harm done, right? Stick around, Desai.
Um, I'll just I'll catch up with you later.
How about we go to dinner tonight? Clear our heads.
Um, yeah.
I'll see you later.
How could you not believe it? When my daughter tells me something like this, you're damn right I listen.
Hey, bring an entire law firm down on me for all I care.
Whitney stays here, and that's final.
And if that man so much as ever looks at my daughter again, so help me, I'll put a bullet in his head.
Whitney, come here.
It's all right.
Thank you, daddy.
I love you.
What the hell is this? You barely filled anything out.
I've just been going through a lot recently.
You know I have to flunk you, right? Why can't I just do like a make-up test or something? It doesn't work like that.
Um I recently I recently came into a lot of money.
Like a trust fund kind of thing.
Yeah, I'm sorry to hear about your dad.
He loved soccer.
I think he would have wanted me to use some of that money on new equipment, and new uniforms.
I could make a nice donation in his honor.
What do you say, coach? Depends on what you're saying.
I'm saying that maybe you should take another look at this test.
All right, Desai.
If you think that's what your father would have wanted.
I have one of the highest GPAs in my class, and I am I can't believe you're going through with it.
Why are you still running when you know how hard Andie's worked? She said it was okay.
Of course she did.
Because she's nice.
What is this even about? I just want to do something, you know? Something other than getting good grades and sitting on the sidelines, and dealing with But student body president is Andie's dream.
I just need to do something for me, okay, Rico? No, it's not okay.
Andie's not doing it for her.
Andie's doing it because she cares about the other students and making their lives better.
Giving back.
That's what Andie does.
Why can't I do that too? Because it's not the same thing.
You're just doing it for you.
Here at Green Grove, this isn't a "hallway," it's a corridor of learning.
Yeah, that's very scholastic.
How you doing, Jack? Danny.
Oh, you remember Whitney, right? My little girl.
God, I barely recognized you without the pigtails.
Oh, little Danny Desai.
Are you still afraid of spiders? - Only the big ones.
- Look at you.
Already making friends.
Hey, um, I was looking for you.
Lacey, I wanted to introduce you to Whitney.
She's a bright, promising new student.
So do you mind showing her around? Um Sure.
You are so helpful.
Uh, Mr.
Taylor, just follow me.
We have a little more paperwork to do.
Danny, keep an eye on my little girl.
See you after school.
Bye, Jack.
You call your dad "Jack"? Only in public.
Lead on, my student guide.
See you, Danny.
Okay, just follow the script.
You're gonna do great, all right? I even put in a space for laughter.
It's a comedy thing.
You'll see.
"Pause for laughter.
" Am I sweating? I don't know.
My mouth's really dry.
Look, just imagine everyone in their underwear.
That's what the pros do.
Okay, don't do that.
That could be horrifying.
Don't do that.
Stick to the script.
Hey, Jo.
I just wanted to wish you luck.
You're gonna be great.
You too.
I'm gonna run to the ladies'.
This is not the time to be conversing with the enemy.
I really don't appreciate being put in the position of lying to Lacey, or lying on top of another lie, or whatever it is we're doing right now.
This is exactly why I wanted space from you.
I'm sorry.
I was in a corner, okay? I had to tell her something.
Okay, whatever.
Just Next time just leave me out of it.
Jo! I am not a flip-flopper.
My platform has always been pizza, - Yeah! - Continues to be pizza, and will forever be pizza.
Because pizza is awesome! Hi.
I'm Andie Dang, and I know what you're thinking.
"Dang, is this assembly almost over?" I'm running for president because I have so many ideas to improve green grove.
Did you know we can cut electricity costs in half by using energy efficient light bulbs? Now there's a bright idea.
And we can decrease school waste with a few targeted recycling programs.
Eat less, go less, flush less.
"Flush," I'm talking about poop.
Okay, so yeah.
So anyway, in conclusion Oh my God, I can't I can't say that.
- I can't.
- Say it.
I can't I can't say that.
I'm Jo Masterson, but most of you probably already know that, 'cause I've definitely embarrassed myself up on this stage before.
So so I know exactly what Andie just went through.
And I also know that she didn't get to say what she really feels, which is that she has a lot of really great ideas on how to actually improve our school.
And not because it'll look good on her college application, or it's because she genuinely cares.
So I'm not the right person to be your president.
She is.
So vote for Andie.
I don't know if you noticed, but I bought out the whole restaurant.
What do you think? Best boyfriend ever? I also got flowers.
Yeah, they're really great.
Why, what's wrong? What's going on? Wasserman posted grades from the test.
Uh, check yours.
The exact thing I wanted to get our minds off.
Waiter, we'd like to order the beluga caviar and the blue point oysters please.
Right away.
I'm not exactly sure if I'm gonna like either of those things, but they sound rich and fancy a "B.
" I can live with that.
That test was a beast.
What'd you get? I saw you talking to Mr.
But if you failed, I'm sure we could convince him to let you take a make-up test or something.
I didn't fail.
Don't worry about it.
You got an "A"? I studied for a week and only got a "B.
" Well, I guess American history's my bitch.
Come on, give me my phone back.
Let's not talk about school, okay? Let's just have a nice night.
Yeah, okay.
It's just this is all so extravagant.
I just I just want to talk.
Here you are.
Thanks, boss.
You sure made that guy's night.
Really good.
You should have one.
You cold? I love this view.
Oh, hey.
I almost forgot.
You bribed him, didn't you? To get an "a" on the test.
I wouldn't exactly call that a bribe I would.
And now you're bribing me to stop asking you questions.
Take it.
'Cause it's not working.
I think you're lying about what happened in the woods with your father.
It just doesn't add up.
How much, Danny? How much is it gonna cost for you to tell me the truth? Stop! You just won't let this go, will you, Lacey? It would just be so much easier if you would just accept that.
Well, I can't.
I can't accept that.
Why can't you just tell me what's wrong? 'Cause I can't! Why are you being like this? Because I killed him.
I killed my dad.
When Lacey told me about the election after party at Johnny Cakes, I was thinking more hot gay club with bottle service.
Bold speech earlier.
I guess it worked out well for your friend.
Jo, right? Yes.
Oh, I remember you.
Your dad worked for Danny's dad, right? Mm-hmm.
You and Danny were inseparable back in the day.
Yeah, it was just me and Danny.
You coming? I'm gonna head out.
See you around, Jo.
You killed him? Well then, someone staged a car crash.
- This is so - I know, trust me.
- I know it sounds crazy - It sounds insane.
I mean, if it was self-defense, then why didn't you just I just didn't want to say anything.
Because of Jo.
Jo? He was trying to kill her, okay? - She was there? - And I You were defending Jo? So you and Jo have been covering for each other this whole time, and keeping this huge secret.
And with me you just lied.
Understand, I'm trying to protect you, okay? You keep saying that.
It's always the same story.
I'm sick of it.
I know it's a lot.
But you just A lot?! No.
This is too much.
This entire time I've been defending you, I've been believing you for what? It's because you trust me, right? I'm telling the truth.
I'm supposed to be your girlfriend.
But you can't even tell me about the biggest moment in your life? You don't even see it, do you? What are you talking about? You and Jo! It's not just the secrets that you guys share.
It's been Jo all along.
It's always been Jo.
I've been thinking.
Me too.
I said a lot of things.
We both did.
Is it ever gonna get better? Can't say.
But I do know you need to find that child.
I don't know.
Yes, you do.
You gotta stop burying it, hiding from it.
Maybe finding that child will help us find our way back.
You want to find our way back? I don't even know where to start.
I can help.
We can do it together.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I, um I saw you leaving Johnny Cakes.
You looked pretty sad.
I was just pissed at myself.
I should have prepped you better.
You're actually supposed to get people to vote for you, not for the opposition.
It's not that.
I just I just went about this whole thing wrong.
I thought you wanted a change? Yeah.
In myself though.
I just I wanted to get away from all the stuff that's going on in my life, so I thought if I buried myself in this campaign and in the job, then I was just running away.
Running away from Danny.
Kind of, yeah.
He's just been this huge part of my life for so long.
I mean even when he went to juvie.
Maybe especially then.
I don't know.
Jo, I need to tell you something.
When I when I came to Green Grove, I was coming from juvie.
Juvie? Yeah, I'm not a murderer or anything Did you know Danny? Yeah.
And I may know him better than you do.
What do you mean? He might not be who you think he is.
I need you to tell me everything.
He was angry, Jo.
I mean, you gotta understand, he was coming out of this haze of just always doing everything that his father told him to.
And then he realized that he'd been manipulated and lied to.
So you know about Yeah.
Yeah, that he took the fall for his dad killing his aunt.
Which is just I would have felt the same way as Danny.
You mean, that he felt angry with his dad and just wanted to know why he did it? Yeah.
He he was kind of obsessed about it though.
I mean one night, he he swore to me that once he got out he would find his dad and kill him.
He talked about about killing him? I was relieved when I heard about the car accident.
Maybe Danny didn't get the revenge he wanted, or whatever, but at least he didn't become a killer.
Hey, my student guide.
- Oh.
- Are you okay? Yeah, I'm fine.
No, you're not.
I've seen that look before.
It's usually in the mirror after a breakup.
Danny, I'm guessing? God, how messed up is it that I still care about him? A totally human kind of messed up.
- Jack.
- Hey.
I'm glad you came by.
I realized that we never got to talk in all the whirlwind.
My daughter has a lot of the same traits as a tornado.
She's wonderful.
And watching the two of you these last couple days you've realized I'm the worst parent ever? No.
The exact opposite, and you know that.
You're compassionate, and strong, and I think you would do anything to protect the people in your life.
The way you protected me and Danny.
And I didn't even ask.
You don't have to ask, Karen.
I'll do anything for Danny.
'Cause I'm pretty much in love with his mother.
I told Lacey the truth about my dad.
All of it.
We broke up.
That's too bad.
But you can't keep coming here, Danny.
If that's what you came here to tell me not just that.
She said some things about about you and me.
What? What'd she say? That we're liars, that we're criminals? No.
She said that there's something that there's something between us.
Don't do this to me, Danny.
Haven't you lied to me enough? No, you're the one person I haven't lied to.
You're lying! When you were in juvie, did you talk about killing your dad? Where did you hear that? From Charlie.
Who was in juvie with you.
- He told you that wait wait wait.
- You killed him, and you let me think that it was an accident.
No, you were there.
You were there.
I didn't You manipulated me, and I covered for you, Danny.
No wonder you are so worried about becoming your dad.
You are just like him! It's just you and me, son.
Go away.
Forever! No!
