Virgin River (2019) s02e09 Episode Script

Hazards Ahead

[JACK] Hey, Preach, listen, I got
some business to take care of.
So I need you to call the staff.
Just let 'em know that the kitchen
will be open today. Okay?
I'll probably be in around lunch.
All right. Thanks, man. Bye.
How fast can you get to Doc's?
- [JACK] Mel?
- Hey.
- Hey, this is Adrian.
His right arm's pretty busted.
Hey, Adrian. My name is Mel.
I'm gonna take care of you. Okay?
How long was he out there for?
He said a couple of days.
He slept most of the way here.
Where was he?
He said he got turned around
somewhere near Pine Ridge.
I called his family.
They're on their way.
Okay. All right.
It's okay.
Well, I can't be sure without an X-ray,
but I think his right arm is broken.
And he's severely dehydrated. Adrian.
I'm gonna go get some supplies
to start an IV. Okay?
So what were you doing near Pine
Ridge so early in the morning?
Driving around.
You were just 4:00 a.m.
driving around in the dark?
Really, Jack?
I was on my way to see Spencer.
Yesterday he said he would
testify against Calvin.
Now I can't get a hold of him.
You need to call the sheriff.
Calvin poisoned my customers.
Which is why you need
to call the sheriff.
When are you gonna stop, Jack?
- Stop what?
- Going to war.
I'll stop when it's over.
I care about you,
and I'm worried that you're
putting yourself in danger.
Can we talk later at lunch, please?
I'll meet you at the bar at noon.
It sounds like you got it handled.
Uh, Mel, let me I'll call
you from the car. Okay.
Hey, I thought we could
have breakfast together.
Well, I'm sorry. I'm running
short on time this morning.
Charmaine is considering
moving to Oregon,
and Jack is buying a house for the twins
because he has absolutely no idea.
We have gone over this,
and Jack made it clear.
You have got to stay
out of his business.
How can I stand by and watch
Charmaine blow his life up
knowing I could have
done something about it?
Jack is rearranging everything
so he can be a hands-on father.
Imagine how he's gonna feel
when Charmaine pulls the
rug out from under him.
Yeah, that is quite a pickle, isn't it?
And the worst part is
none of this is my fault.
I was an innocent bystander
minding my own business,
and then Charmaine drops
a stink bomb in my lap.
- It doesn't matter who's at fault here.
- She is.
The issue is that this is information
that Jack needs to know,
but if it comes from you,
he may shoot the messenger.
- Exactly.
- So what you need to do
is find another messenger.
How is that helpful?
Well, you'll figure it out. Now I
need to leave to catch my flight.
Where you going?
I, uh, I have a medical
conference in Seattle.
- What? You hate those things.
- Oh, I never said that.
You say it all the time. And why
am I just hearing about this now?
I wasn't aware I had to
run my schedule past you.
What's the conference about?
I'll be back tomorrow.
Where are you staying?
As I said, Seattle!
Hey, I'm short on pies. So you're
just gonna have to make do.
[PREACHER] Yeah, don't worry about it.
Oh, I'm gonna worry about it.
Lizzie was supposed to
fill the order. [SIGHS]
I know you're not supposed
to talk badly about kin,
but the girl is more idle
than a Sunday afternoon.
[CHUCKLES] Sounds like
she's a normal teenager.
Technically she's an adult,
but that's kind of you to say.
All right. Thanks.
Don't Don't forget to come
by the house after your shift
so we can work out your alibi.
It's too late.
- No, it isn't.
- Yeah, it is.
Sheriff called me.
What did he say?
Well, I, uh, I don't know yet.
- I went to see him, but he was out.
- Good.
He was out because someone
discovered Wes's car.
But if you haven't spoken
to him, we still have time.
Look, Connie,
I appreciate your concern,
but, um, from here on out, I am
gonna deal with this on my own.
Absolutely not.
I refuse to let you go
through this by yourself.
- You need me.
- No.
No, Lizzie needs you,
and I don't want anyone but me
impacted by the choice that I made.
You're being pigheaded.
No, I'm making a calculated decision.
How do you figure?
What do you think happens to Lizzie
if something happens to you?
[SIGHS] Well, she'd go
back to her parents.
And you think that's
the best thing for her?
I suppose not.
You know, when I was growing up,
my mom, she wasn't around much.
So my dad made it his
business to make sure
that he was there for
every family dinner,
every ball game, everything
that mattered to me.
What that taught me
was having that one person
invest their time and effort into you,
it's all you needed to
believe in yourself.
For Lizzie
that one person's you.
Thanks for the pies.
Carlos, my phone's about to
run out of juice. What's up?
[CARLOS] All right, um, so I've got
not great news about the house.
Well, what is it?
The seller wants a 15-day escrow.
Well, how How am I supposed
to make that happen?
Well, if we expedite your inspection
and put a rush on the loan documents,
we can make it happen.
So what do you wanna do?
Well, I guess I'm buying a house.
Oh, and can you e-mail me the paperwork?
I'm not at the bar, so I can
get it back to you tonight.
It's already on its way.
You made the right decision, Jack.
Thanks. Oh, and don't forget
to send me the information for
that renter you mentioned.
I'm gonna need that to
cover the mortgage.
Uh, yeah. Sorry. I followed up,
and the guy already found a place.
- All right. Well, then can we
Carlos? Carl
Ricky! You got an ETA on my burger?
I got a guy in Redding who needs a tow.
Let me check.
[PREACHER] Ricky, give me
a hand unloading the truck.
Hey, Preach. I need to go
home just for like an hour.
- How come?
- A bear knocked over the trash can.
My grandma needs help picking it up
before the raccoons get into it
- A bear, huh?
- Yeah.
Well, how'd she know it was a bear?
I think she saw him or her.
Yeah, it's hard to tell what's a
girl bear and what's a boy bear,
you know, with all the fur.
But anyways, uh, I'm pretty
sure she saw a bear, so
You're a terrible liar.
It's Lizzie, okay? She's freaked
out about something.
I'll be fast, okay? I promise.
Thank you. Thank you.
Did Ricky just leave?
- Yeah.
- Did he take my burger with him?
It was ordered a half hour ago,
and I still haven't seen it.
Aw. Sorry, Bert, I will take care of it,
and throw a dessert in on the house.
Well, thanks.
Hey, Mel, got catfish on the menu.
- Ooh. That sounds delicious.
- Mm-hmm.
Can you tell Jack that I'm here?
I'm a little bit late.
He's not here. He said he needed
to take care of something.
Oh, um, for the bar?
Didn't say. Why, what's up?
Oh, it's just we were
supposed to meet for lunch.
Oh, you try him on his cell?
No, I will do that.
And when he shows up?
Just have him give me a call.
- Yeah, you got it.
- Thanks.
Coming up, Bert!
Hey, Jack, it's me. Uh I'm at
the bar for lunch like we planned.
Uh, give me a call back.
If you're trying to call
Doc, he's in transit.
Um, no. No, it's Jack, actually.
He's not answering his phone, and
Preacher doesn't know where he is.
Sounds like a Charmaine issue to me.
- I don't think so.
- Why not?
They have a lot of stuff to figure
out before the twins get here.
Yeah, that's true.
I mean, like where they're gonna live.
Yeah, I just I don't think
that's any of my business.
I'm telling you their situation is
a land mine waiting to explode.
Well, that's a little dramatic.
Good grief.
You're just terrible
at picking up subtext.
So this is the deal.
Charmaine is considering
moving to Oregon,
but she isn't going to tell Jack
until after she's made her decision.
He needs to know this ASAP, but
I'm not gonna be the one to tell him.
- So you're gonna have to do it.
- Whoa!
You're gonna need to back up.
No, I am not supposed to be involved
in Jack's personal affairs,
so I'm officially passing
the baton to you.
You telling me is you being involved.
Not the way I see it.
Morning, ladies.
- Morning!
- Morning.
Muriel said she finished these
pieces before her trip,
but obviously, that didn't happen.
Where is she?
For the wine cruise.
She was so excited,
she bought a whole new wardrobe.
How many skintight outfits
does a person need?
She said one of the dresses
was backless. Can you imagine?
Thankfully, no.
Where's Doc off to?
At the bakery truck this morning early,
he said he had a flight to catch.
- A medical conference.
- Oh, really?
Oh, where?
He's in Seattle.
Oh, well, that's a coincidence,
Doc and Muriel visiting the same city.
Isn't she on a boat?
Well, actually she said that
she was gonna be spending
two days in the city before the
It's the truth.
Doesn't mean we need a play-by-play.
This is pretty, huh?
I didn't ask for a house call.
No. No, I know. I know.
I'm just I'm wondering
if Jack is here.
That's funny. I thought I was the
only one who chased after him.
- That's not what this is.
- Okay.
Well, you keep telling yourself
that. No, he's not here.
Wait, I I think something's wrong.
Thank you.
So, what is it?
Well, I can't reach him, and
nobody knows where he is.
Jack going off-grid isn't
exactly a new thing.
It's part of the package.
No, I think this is something else.
Did he tell you about the
food poisoning at the bar?
No. What happened?
Calvin had one of his guys
tamper with the salad,
and a bunch of people got sick.
And Jack said he's going after him.
I'm scared he's gonna get hurt.
Well, did you call
Preacher or the sheriff?
No, I don't want to involve
anyone in case I'm wrong.
Oh, what are you gonna do?
Well, I want to drive
up to the pot farm,
but I can't remember how to get there.
Okay, it's not exactly safe up there,
especially for somebody like you.
- I'm sorry. What does that mean?
- You live in a bubble.
You're not used to dealing
with people that have an edge.
I spent three years working at
an ER in downtown Los Angeles.
Okay, there's a bar in Garberville.
I know somebody there that might
be able to give you directions.
Okay, great. Could you just,
uh, give me the bar's number?
You can't just call somebody and
ask for the address to a pot farm.
Well, I'm sorry.
Asking directions to a pot farm
is still a little bit new to me.
Yeah, which is exactly why you
shouldn't be going out there
in the first place.
Okay. Can I just get the bar's address?
I'm going with you.
No, you're not. You're pregnant.
Exactly. With Jack's babies.
If If he's in danger,
this is my business too.
Right. Well, I'm not
taking you to Calvin's.
Just take me to the bar.
You're not gonna get anywhere
with Bea by yourself anyways.
- Who's Bea?
- She's the owner.
I used to work there
when I was in high school.
You worked at a bar when
you were in high school?
Yeah. I did.
See what I mean about the bubble?
Let's go find Jack.
You should take your truck.
No, I told you already. Sean's got it.
Spencer's crap's not gonna fit in mine.
So we take whatever
doesn't fit, and we burn it.
That's a great idea
Let's start a bonfire a
mile away from a pot field.
[JIMMY] Oh, man, I gotta take a leak.
Where the hell is Spencer?
What'd you do that for?
Easiest way to get him in the truck.
You could have told him to leave.
Don't you think Calvin's
gonna wanna talk to him?
Come on. Help me get him in the truck.
[LILLY] Meant to tell you,
Chloe actually stood up.
And, um, she held on to
- Is Mel out? Yeah.
- Mm-hmm.
- Anyway, she stood
- Come on.
Hope! Hope.
I'm not comfortable being
here. You're snooping.
The end justifies the means.
You don't believe
that Doc and Muriel are having
some sort of fling, do you?
Of course not. Vernon wouldn't do that.
Well, then what are we doing here?
I can't be with someone
who's keeping secrets.
The thought of it drives me insane,
and Vernon is definitely doing something
he doesn't want me to know about.
Okay, that's why you're acting so crazy.
You know me so well.
- What am I doing here?
- You're my witness. You're
His voice mail.
What? Okay. What are you
gonna do? What are you
- Listen
- Call his voice mail.
That is a total invasion of privacy,
and I'm pretty sure it's illegal.
Are you kidding? Women have been
calling their husbands' voice mail
since the day voice mail was invented.
I never listened to
Buck's private messages.
I'm sorry, we can't all be saints.
You're right. There's nothing to report.
See? Told you there was
nothing to worry about.
Now, let's get out of here, okay?
This feels wrong.
I'd be happy to have our sommelier
help you with your selection, sir.
Well, actually, I was just looking.
My lunch date is bringing a bottle.
Very good, sir.
I am so sorry I'm late.
Don't let the screw cap fool
you. It's very expensive.
Thank you.
Well, for a moment, I was afraid
you weren't going to come.
Oh, no, not at all.
I couldn't decide what to wear.
I haven't done anything
like this before, you know.
Just glad it all worked out.
Me too.
Shall we toast?
To, uh, what?
How about new beginnings and
the bright and happy future?
I like the sound of that.
- Hey.
- [RICKY] Hi.
Sorry for dragging you over here.
No, it's okay.
I'd rather be here than at work.
So, the noise?
I thought I heard someone
outside my window.
Well, it's probably just a squirrel.
Or the wind.
If you wanna stay, I'll make
you my famous grilled cheese.
Nah, I gotta get back
to the bar in an hour.
So? He'll survive without you.
No, Preacher was cool about me leaving.
I'm not just gonna leave him hanging.
Come on.
Stay just for a little longer.
[CHUCKLES] Why do you
want me to stay so bad?
I just thought we could hang out.
Tell me the real reason,
and I'll call Preacher,
and I'll bail on my shift.
I don't like being home alone.
Growing up, my parents
traveled all the time for work.
So we had a live-in nanny.
I'm not used to being by myself.
It's a bummer that your
parents were never around.
Even when home, they
were in their own world.
So it's not like it mattered.
Anyway, will you stay?
Yeah, as long as you want me to.
I gotta say none of this surprises me.
Jack off on some
vendetta against Calvin,
not once stopping to think about
if something happened to him
what that might mean
for me and the babies.
Well, I think that Jack feels
like shutting down Calvin
is his way of protecting all of you.
No, you were hurt, and
now Jack wants blood.
- Has nothing to do with me.
- That's not true.
This is about Calvin
poisoning his customers.
I think it's a little bit
more personal than that.
Besides, this is why I'm
weighing all of my options.
Your options?
I need to be in a situation
that provides my family
with the most security.
Well, that's what Jack wants too.
My aunt and uncle invited
me and the twins
to go live with them in Portland.
How does Jack feel about that?
He doesn't know.
Charmaine, if you take the babies away,
it's gonna break Jack's heart.
Well, he breaks my heart every day.
That's not the same thing,
and you know it.
And not giving him a say on where
his children live is just cruel.
Hey, you know what? I'm the one
that's vulnerable here, not Jack.
No, if I stay in Clear River
and he decides to leave,
or he decides to stop supporting
me, I'm the one that's screwed.
Well, Jack would never do
that to you or his kids.
Well, I'm not rich like you are,
so I can't afford to
have that kind of faith.
I'm not rich.
[LAUGHS] Right.
You drive a BMW and
you married a doctor.
- Hey, Sheriff.
- Hey, Preach.
Got fresh apple pie.
[CHUCKLES] My kryptonite.
So, did Howard tell you I stopped by?
Yeah. Sorry I didn't get
back to you earlier.
I had a question about that license
plate you called in a month ago.
Yeah, what about it?
Well, looks like it was
involved in a hit-and-run
over in Shelter Cove.
You mind coming in, giving us
a description of the driver?
Yeah. Yeah, no problem.
All right.
So, Howard said you guys
found an abandoned vehicle?
Yep, registered to a
fella named Wes Logan,
some big-shot Florida detective.
It was originally reported
as a missing persons,
but now there's a warrant
out for his arrest.
- Wow.
- Yeah.
Bribery, extortion, assault.
His partner flipped on him.
So, what happens now?
Well, we don't have the resources
to mount any sort of manhunt,
so unless he draws attention to himself,
there's not a whole lot we can do.
Well, this slice is on the house.
Glad to see you're back in business.
Well, it is good to be back. [LAUGHS]
So, what was the story behind
the whole food poisoning?
Turns out you were right.
It was deliberate. One of
our servers was involved.
Anyways, I don't have all the details.
Jack says he's handling it.
Oh, wow.
If it were me, it'd make me go crazy
not to have control over my kitchen.
- Yeah, well, it's Jack's bar.
- In my world, the chef has the power.
Well, you know, we're like partners.
Like and being are two different things.
Anyway, my former mentor
is opening a new restaurant
in San Francisco,
and based on my recommendation,
he's offered to hire you.
You're serious?
Well, who's the chef?
- Paul Papile.
- Papile?
[CHUCKLING] Oh, wow!
You'd have to start by working the line,
but I know you'll move up quickly.
Trust me. This is the
opportunity of a lifetime.
Okay, so what's the catch?
If you want it, you need
to commit within 24 hours.
[CHARMAINE] This is it.
Honey, following your man
into whatever trouble
he's gotten himself into with
Calvin is a terrible idea.
[CHARMAINE] He's not my man.
We're just really worried about him.
Calvin's guys are armed and dangerous.
You know that, don't you?
I heard your brother's working for him.
Yeah, well, Davy was a good kid
till he got involved
with that monster, so
Help us.
Maybe that'll help your brother.
Maybe someone else's brother too.
We just need directions
to where the camp is.
You know, if Calvin finds out
that you got this from me,
they will kill my brother.
We're not gonna tell anyone. Right, Mel?
- There.
- Thank you.
Thank you.
All right. Come on.
[JIMMY] Look who we found
digging around Spencer's trailer.
Where is he?
Is he dead?
I would never do such a thing.
Isn't that right, Brady?
What'd you do?
What I had to.
[CALVIN] I guess I should
offer you my condolences.
You have no idea what you've started.
Now you listen to me, Jack.
Today you walk.
Next time you poke your nose in
my business, show up on my land,
talk to my crew, that
day will be your last.
This ain't over.
Why'd you let him go?
Problem is you don't think ahead, Jimmy.
If I was in charge, I would've put
a bullet right between his eyes.
Listen, Jack's got nothing,
all right? Including a witness.
Killing him would bring
all kinds of heat.
I ain't worried about Jack Sheridan.
But we need to talk business
in private.
I'll be outside, boss.
- Do I really have to answer this?
- Yes.
Okay, then I guess jicama.
Are you serious? Jicama is
your favorite vegetable?
[RICKY] Yeah, it's crunchy, and
it doesn't taste like anything.
I hate mushy food.
Gross. Okay, next question.
If you could only eat one food
for the rest of your life,
what would it be?
How am I supposed to pick one?
Is this, like, including
drinks and snacks, like
Oh, my God, you're not taking
an SAT, just pick a food.
- Okay, I I guess a hamburger.
- Smart choice.
That way, you get protein,
carbs, and veggies.
- Thank you.
I'm still not sure how me
answering these questions
is supposed to predict how
many kids I'm gonna have.
I don't know, but I swear
these things are intuitive.
No matter what the quiz is about,
I always get the same Disney princess.
- Oh, yeah. Who's that?
- Mulan.
Oh, I can really see that.
[LIZZIE] It says you're
gonna have four babies.
No, this thing's broken.
And I'm gonna have
three, so that's seven.
Okay, you're seriously stressing me out.
I know. It's so cute! [GIGGLES]
Oh, yeah, now it's time for payback.
I'll run 'til these soles come off ♪
There's a condom in the drawer.
- For real?
- Yeah, and I'm on the pill.
Runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin' ♪
That's when I head home ♪
Runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin' ♪
That's when I head home ♪
Runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin' ♪
I'm running ♪
Thanks for, um, helping
me get the directions.
Yeah. Uh, let me know if you find him.
Um, Charmaine.
Are you okay?
I'm just starting to think
that maybe it's better
if me and Jack aren't together.
- Really?
- Mm-hmm.
I used to think that if
we dated long enough,
then maybe, eventually,
he'd fall in love with me, and
But maybe he wouldn't.
And then I'd be married to a man
that doesn't want me. So
You deserve to be happy.
I know.
One more thing. Just, um
Could you just promise me that
you'll talk to Jack about Oregon?
You know, if the situation was
reversed, you would wanna know.
[SIGHS] I'll talk to him. Just don't
say anything until I do, okay?
- Yeah, I promise.
- Okay.
Preach, hey.
That was awesome.
You liked it, right?
I just thought I'd feel different,
and I feel the same,
but I'm thirsty. [GIGGLES]
Do you want me to get
you something to drink?
Sure, and, um, get some Cheetos
while you're down there.
Okay. All right. I'll be right back.
Uh, what What about your aunt?
Oh, she won't be home for hours.
There's a problem with the bakery truck.
Do you want orange juice or milk?
- [LIZZIE] Juice.
- There's, uh, lemonade.
Ooh. Lemonade.
Got it. Oh!
- Uh
What on Earth do you think
you're doing, mister?
Duh um
You all right?
Hey, I appreciate it.
Take me to heart ♪
And I'll always love you ♪
And nobody can make me do wrong ♪
[HOPE] What's going on?
Well, hello, darling.
Did you have a good nap?
Darling? How much Scotch have you had?
None, but in just a few moments,
we're gonna have a glass
of the finest sparkling wine
that Washington State has to offer.
Well, I have a bone to pick with you.
No. No, but first, there's something
that I need to say to you.
A woman's only human ♪
You know, I heard somewhere that people
don't truly process something
until they've heard it
six or seven times.
So with that in mind,
I am prepared to tell you over
and over and over again
that I've loved you
from the first day that I met you,
and I will be yours until the day I die.
Hope McCrea.
Will you be my wife
And as long as we're together, baby ♪
You need to hear this.
Hi, it's Muriel. Listen.
Meet me at the Tidewater Hotel,
2:00 p.m. I will bring the wine.
You listened to my voice mail?
Hope, wait.
A woman's only human ♪
What the hell, Jack!
- Jesus!
- How about a little warning?
- Are you kidding?
Since you blew me off for lunch today
and haven't been answering your phone,
I have been driving
around looking for you.
The only reason I found you is
because Preacher called me.
Sorry. I, um
I got caught up in some stuff,
and I forgot we were
supposed to meet up.
You forgot?
Spencer's dead.
How do you know that?
I was at the pot camp.
Calvin had Brady
get rid of him.
this is not your fault.
Spencer agreed to
testify against Calvin.
You didn't force him to do anything.
He was scared, and I pushed him.
Look, I don't know if you can
make somebody do something
they don't wanna do,
but I do know what it's like to feel
responsible for someone's death.
This is not the same thing
as losing a patient.
The night of the accident,
Mark and I were fighting.
He wanted to quit the fertility
treatments we were doing,
and I didn't.
I was so angry, I wouldn't
let it go. You know?
I just thought if I keep pushing,
then he'll change his mind.
But maybe if I had stopped
talking then he would have
wouldn't have taken his
eyes off the road.
That guilt,
it's all-encompassing.
Jack, I get it.
But like you told me,
it's not an excuse to
shut everybody else out.
I haven't shut you out.
I'm the one that's been totally
open with you about how I feel.
No, I'm not talking about that.
I'm talking about today.
When I couldn't find you, I thought
something happened to you.
It felt like I couldn't breathe.
That's how I felt about you
when you left for L.A.
And the worst part was
when you were gone,
