Virgin River (2019) s05e05 Episode Script

Trial by Fire

[gentle music playing]
[Kaia grunts]
[Preacher] Hey.
[groggily] Oh, you made me coffee already?
- My hero.
- Oh, not just coffee.
- This is café de olla.
- Mmm!
It's Mexican coffee
made by brewing coffee in an olla,
a ceramic jar, with cinnamon, piloncillo
Okay, we get it. You're fancy. [chuckling]
Oh, that is some
black coffee magic right there.
- [Preacher] Mmm?
- Mmm.
You good at everything you do?
You tell me.
Come here.
[phone ringing loudly]
What's that?
[Kaia] Special ringtone for the Chief
so I answer even on my day off.
Hey, Chief, what's up?
[amber alert ringing]
[Kaia] Okay. Yeah, I'll be right there.
Hey. Are we in trouble here?
The wind's picking up,
so he needs me to come in,
but fire's still on the outskirts of town.
Even if it gets close, everybody
on this side of the river should be fine.
I will be back
to finish that coffee.
[pensive music playing]
- [Jack] Are you sure the town is safe?
- [Preacher on phone] For now.
But all the roads
to Clear River are blocked.
[Jack] All right, we're on our way back.
I'll be there as soon as I can, Preach.
Has there been a fire
in Virgin River before?
Well, only one since I got here.
It wasn't too bad, but it got close enough
to give everybody a good scare.
Hope came up with
a fire readiness plan after.
Staggered evacuation zones,
shelter in the elementary school.
The bar's the central command station
because it's close to the river.
So we should probably head straight there.
No, I don't want to go to the bar,
I wanna go to the clinic.
With the roads closed to Clear River,
there's gonna be an influx of patients.
Doc and Cameron are gonna need
all the help they can get.
You got it.
[uplifting music playing]
[Amelia] Morning, sweetheart.
Did you sleep?
Not really.
I can tell.
I have a fantastic new eye cream.
I don't need eye cream.
I just thought you'd like
to look your best for your big day.
I'm not going to a job interview, Mom.
Just testifying in a criminal case.
[laughs] And I should get ready.
Brie, I didn't mean
whatever you thought I meant.
I know it's hard. You just have to
get through today and it will all be over.
- Yeah, I'm not sure that's true.
- Well, I am.
And later, we can catch up.
You can tell me all about
your new house, and your new job,
and why Brady
suddenly decided not to come.
Can we not?
like you said,
just gotta get through today.
We're gonna get you out of here
real soon. Be right back.
- Hey, Jack.
- Hey.
- [Muriel] Mel, so good to see you.
- Hi.
We need help. Uh, Doc and Cameron
are tied up with patients.
This family here, the father did not
want to come down from the camps,
but the wife knows Doc, so she insisted.
She said he inhaled a lot of smoke.
- Okay. Yeah.
- Right, I'm gonna leave you to it.
Mel, glad you're here.
Oh, and Jack. Can I talk to you outside?
- Yeah, sure.
- [Mel] Bye.
- [Muriel] You got this. Thanks, Mel.
- I got it.
- Hey! How are you?
- [man grunts]
My name is Mel, I'm a nurse practitioner.
I hear you inhaled a lot of smoke?
Do you guys want to come over
and take a seat?
Look, uh, I'm fine. [clears throat]
Used to smoke a pack a day,
so it's nothing I can't handle.
He said he felt like someone
was sitting on his chest.
And his heart is still beating too fast.
Well, that is typical
of prolonged smoke exposure,
and the elevated heart rate is because
you're not getting enough oxygen.
So your heart is having to work overtime
to try to get as much of it
as it can through your body.
I'm gonna put you on some
supplemental oxygen for a few hours
and I'll check your heart rate
to make sure it comes down.
- We can't afford anything
- We don't have insurance.
Well, you know what?
I'm a volunteer nurse here today,
so my services are free,
and the oxygen will be on me.
But I might have to charge you
for a lollipop.
What flavors?
I think we have all the flavors.
Thank you.
Things were getting
pretty scary for her up there.
Yeah. No problem.
Apparently, the smoke
is really bad up at the camps
and folks are scared that
they're gonna face criminal charges
or deportation if they leave.
- What, do you want me to talk to them?
- Yeah.
Most of them are good people
who've had their fair share of bad luck
and I just want to make sure
they get the treatment that they need.
But somebody needs to convince them.
All right. Yeah, I'll see what I can do.
You sure you know
your way around up there?
It's gonna get mighty confusing
with all this smoke.
No. Can't say I do, but
I think I know someone who does.
Fire's close. We need to evacuate.
Once my product's secure,
I'll follow Cal Fire's orders.
- Where you moving it to anyway?
- None of your business.
Yeah, right. What do you want me to do
with the lumberyard?
Let it burn.
Collect the insurance.
I'll be in touch once the smoke clears.
- [sirens wailing faintly]
- [indistinct chatter]
[somber music playing]
Hey, what's up?
I'm gonna need some help
evacuating the camps.
Doc says people are refusing to leave.
Think you can help
talk some sense into 'em?
Yeah, sure, but I can't make any promises.
I'll follow you up in one of the trucks.
- All right, I'll meet you at the gate.
- Yeah.
Send everyone home, okay?
Be with their families.
It ain't safe here anymore.
Put on the sprinklers before you go.
[somber music continues]
[reporter on TV] It's day seven
and the Grace Valley wildfires
[Hope] I know you're not
in the evacuation zone, Lydie,
but you're on the same side
of the river as the fire.
And I would feel better if you came
over to this side of the river.
I appreciate your concern, Hope.
But I already spoke with Nick,
and he told me that
we need to keep the roads clear
so that the people
who need to get out fast can get out.
Oh, that's what Nick said.
Did Nick draft the Fire Readiness Plan?
No, I did.
And I made it clear that the elderly
and disabled should be evacuated
as early as possible.
Just because I said
that I enjoyed getting older
doesn't mean that I want
to be thought of as elderly.
Better than being thought of
in the past tense
because you stayed put
and roasted like a marshmallow.
My goodness, Hope, are you really
that worried about me?
Yes, Lydie, I am!
Well, then, I suppose one more car
on the road couldn't hurt.
I'll pack up a few things
and head on over.
[sighs] Good. Goodbye.
[scoffs] I can't believe him.
- Believe who?
- Nick!
He's ignoring my Fire Readiness Plan.
I may not be at the top of my game now,
but I was when I wrote it.
Why would he ignore your plan?
I don't know,
but I'm gonna demand an answer.
He better be using Jack's Bar
as Central Command.
Why don't Denny and I take you?
Getting behind the wheel
with intense anger
and a traumatic brain injury might count
as driving under the influence.
[Hope] Suit yourselves!
[soft music playing]
[woman] How long is the recess?
[indistinct chatter in background]
Nice to see you again, Brie.
[dark music playing]
[exhales and clears throat]
- [sirens wailing faintly]
- [indistinct radio chatter]
[Hope] Excuse me, Nick.
[Nick] On behalf of everybody
in Virgin River, Chief,
I just want to thank you
for all that Cal Fire's doing for us.
We'll do as much as we can,
but we're gonna need
all the help we can get.
Starting with organizing
teams of volunteers
to help the sheriff with evacuations.
Yeah, Preacher served two tours in Iraq.
Maybe he could help coordinate?
Yeah! Yeah, I'm happy to help, sir.
My man will give you a map,
help you get started.
- You bet.
- Excuse me, Nick, may I have a word?
Sure, Hope. What can I do for you?
You can tell me why
you aren't following our fire plan
that calls for an evacuation
of the elderly and disabled
from all zones.
Hope, I'm doing what Cal Fire says.
Chief Smith is far better equipped
to handle the situation than I am.
But you're the mayor of this town now.
You can't be passive.
Your residents who aren't protected
by the river are sitting ducks.
I know! And, Hope, I promise
I'm not gonna let anything happen to them.
Now, if you'll excuse me,
I have a crisis to manage.
Ugh! This is so frustrating!
All I'm trying to do is help!
[Preacher] Maybe you still can.
Now, the chief put me in control
of organizing all the volunteers,
so I see no reason
why we can't send a few extras
to check on Virgin River's
most vulnerable citizens.
- We'll volunteer. Where can we go?
- Thank you, all.
Um, since we know Lydie's headed this way,
why don't you go out to Bert's
and make sure he left?
I spoke to Shirley.
She's at her mother's in Montana,
but she can't reach him and neither can I.
- What about Aunt Connie?
- [Hope] Oh, I spoke to her!
She's at the elementary school
helping out with evacuees.
She'll meet us later.
Okay, well, for now,
the way to Bert's seems clear.
So as long as you stay on Ox Yoke Drive,
it should be an easy trip out and back.
You can count on us.
Thank you.
[man on radio] Mayday, mayday.
Firefighter, identify yourself
and state your emergency.
This is Davis.
We have two firefighters down.
One with an impalement.
Possible internal bleeding.
Second with minor injuries.
Unable to extricate.
Requesting immediate medical assistance.
Latitude, 40.7 north.
Longitude, 123.86 west.
Stay put, Davis. Help is on the way.
It's right there.
Road to that location's cut off.
I can't get an ambulance out there.
Chief Smith, Dr. Mullins should have
a straight shot from his clinic.
Hope, I'm sure the chief can handle
Make the call.
Any chance you know the name
of those injured firefighters?
You know as much as I do. Why?
Just worried about a friend.
If Vernon is on the way,
whoever they are will be in good hands.
[Mel] Okay, one more nice, deep breath.
All right, well, your lungs are clear.
Your heart rate is back down,
so you're good to go.
There is a shelter
at the elementary school.
I'm gonna send you
with this rescue inhaler
just in case you experience
any more shortness of breath.
And you know what? I think I need
to prescribe you another lollipop.
- [laughs]
- Thank you so much, Mel.
You're welcome.
- Bye.
- Thank you.
Oh, good. Uh, we have a new patient.
Minor burn on his left hand.
All right. Uh, apply a cool,
wet compress and I will be right back.
- I have to run to the restroom. Thanks.
- Yeah.
[somber music playing]
Could you start by telling the court your
name and relationship to the defendant?
My name is Brie Sheridan,
and the defendant is my rapist.
Objection, Your Honor.
[lawyer] On what grounds?
All of them.
Assumes facts not in evidence, for one.
[judge] Sustained.
The jury will ignore that last statement.
Sheridan, I know you're also an attorney,
so you should know better.
Won't happen again, I'm sure.
It won't, Your Honor.
Don is my ex-boyfriend.
Will you please tell the jury
what happened on the night of May 10th?
Well, Don made us dinner.
We had a glass of wine.
Watched some Dancing With The Stars,
and then he sexually assaulted me.
- Your Honor!
- Ms. Richardson.
Do you need a moment
to talk to your witness?
No, Your Honor.
We called Ms. Sheridan to testify
as to what happened between herself
and the defendant that night.
The defense's whole case rests on the fact
that the incident in question
was a miscommunication.
A mistake.
But Ms. Sheridan's testimony
will show intent.
The defendant knew exactly
what he was doing,
and he acted similarly
with the witnesses here today.
I'll allow it, but on the grounds
that you don't categorize
the incident yourself, Ms. Sheridan.
That's for the jury to decide.
Your job is to tell us what happened.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Do you think you can do that?
I can, Your Honor.
Then you may proceed.
Can you share the facts of what happened
between you and the defendant
after you finished watching TV that night?
[tense music playing]
[clears throat]
- Hey, Mel.
- Hey.
You okay?
[sighs] Yeah, I think I'm just
really tired from the morning rush.
- [Doc] Yeah.
- How are you? Are you okay?
Yeah, there's a firefighter
who's been impaled.
I need to see if it's safe to move them
and I wanna bring Cameron with me
in case I need help.
- You okay to hold down the fort?
- Absolutely. Yeah.
- We'll be back as soon as we can.
- Okay.
- [Muriel] Hey, Mel?
- Yeah.
We have more patients out there.
Mostly minor burns and smoke inhalation.
Okay, can you do their intakes for me?
Just rank them from most to least severe.
Yeah, I can do that.
I had an under-five role
as a nurse on General Hospital,
so you don't need to worry about a thing.
[Mel softly] Okay.
[clears throat]
- [exhales]
- [jeans unzipping]
[bittersweet music playing]
- [crying softly]
- [bittersweet music continues]
[exhales] Okay.
- [bittersweet music continues softly]
- [clears throat]
[indistinct clamoring]
- [Brady] This ain't gonna be easy.
- [Jack] Yeah, I might need some backup.
- [Brady] Good luck.
- [men coughing]
[Jack] All right, listen up!
Now, I know most of you don't want to,
but I'm gonna have to ask you to leave.
All right? This camp is now
in a mandatory evacuation zone.
This camp is all we got, man.
We can't just leave.
Listen, I get it.
But this fire is on your doorstep.
You're not safe here.
You'll be safe in Virgin River.
No, we won't. Don't believe him.
Hey, then believe me.
Come on, Frank. You know me.
I had your back with Calvin
and I have it now.
I would never ask anyone to leave
unless you absolutely had to.
You got my word. You got Jack's too.
- [explosion]
- [people exclaiming]
We gotta go! Now!
[Frank] All right, everybody,
get into the truck.
Grab your stuff!
Just what you need! Now! Let's go!
[sirens wailing faintly]
- Okay, just take some deep breaths.
- [phone ringing]
Muriel? Oh, hi. Sorry.
Were you here the whole time?
A good actress
is always waiting in the wings.
- What do you need?
- Um, sorry.
Um, can you make sure that the nebulizer
stays over his nose and mouth
and that you see mist filling up
in the bottom in between breaths?
- Yeah, okay.
- Okay. I'll be right back.
Okay. [sighs]
- Hey, Ava.
- [Ava] Hey, Mel.
Looks like I chose
the wrong time to visit Virgin River.
I know. The fire is really scary.
Um, are you at the farm? Are you okay?
Yeah, I'm here.
I'm watching Chloe for a few days
while Tara's in San Francisco.
But I think I'm more cut out to be
"fun aunt" than "caretaker in a crisis."
I wasn't told to evacuate,
but there's a lot of smoke outside.
You were right to call.
Smoke can be really dangerous for babies
even if you can't see it in the house.
If the roads are clear, can you bring her
to the clinic for a checkup?
That'll put both of our minds at ease.
Will do. I'll be there in 30.
- Okay. I'll be waiting.
- Thanks, Mel.
You're clearly more cut out
to be a mother than I am.
- See you soon.
- Yeah.
- Bye.
- [bittersweet music playing]
[Muriel] Mel.
It stopped misting.
[Preacher] All right, so let's rendezvous
after an hour, head back as a unit.
Be safe.
Okay, it looks like we got volunteers out
to all of the homes
you wanted to evacuate early.
[sighs] Thanks again, Preacher.
It's nice to know people outside
the sewing circle still believe in me.
Hey, you are a warrior
for this town, Hope.
And when warriors get wounded,
we rally around them.
- I appreciate that.
- Of course.
Everything's gonna be okay.
Nick can't screw this up too badly.
You sure about that?
Any updates on the firefighter?
Nothing yet, but I haven't pushed.
I don't want to annoy Chief Smith.
Well, I'm happy to annoy Nick
if you make me something to eat.
- Got yourself a deal.
- [Hope chuckles]
[Doc] Hey.
[man] Two firefighters
were on this rock face
trying to get a better angle
on the blaze when a tree fell,
forcing them both
to jump at the last second.
[Kaia] All right, just breathe.
You're gonna be fine. The docs are here.
Hey, this is Jay.
Jay, I'm Dr. Mullins.
- This is Dr. Hayek.
- [Cameron] Hey.
You're, uh You're Cameron, right?
- Yeah!
- You two know each other?
Mel and I helped Kaia deliver a baby
on FaceTime a few days ago.
How you feeling, Jay?
Like there's a giant piece of wood
sticking out of my leg.
Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news,
but there is a giant piece of wood
sticking out of your leg.
[laughs] Please don't make me laugh, Doc.
- It really hurts.
- Noted.
Laughter isn't always the best medicine,
but I'm glad you're in good spirits.
[Jay] All things considered, um,
Kaia said there isn't enough clearance
to cut me free here, so
[groans] So, what's the plan?
You guys do have a plan, right?
[dramatic music playing]
[sirens wailing faintly]
[Lizzie] Stop.
- Why is Lydie still here?
- No idea.
Didn't Hope tell her
to get out of here a while ago?
[Lizzie] Lydie.
What are you two doing out here?
We came to check on Bert,
but saw you in your driveway.
You were supposed to be in town by now.
I just have a few more boxes to load,
and if you two could help,
I'll be done in a jiff.
Lydie, I think you have
enough stuff already.
It's getting bad out there. We need to go.
Not until I have everything in the car.
This is all I have left of Herb and Ricky.
Ricky isn't dead.
He's at basic training in San Diego.
What if he doesn't come back?
Something could happen. Accidents happen.
- He could get deployed
- Lydie, Ricky is coming back.
And I know how much you miss him
because I miss him too.
But I also know that Ricky wouldn't want
you risking your life over memorabilia.
Your memories aren't in that house, Lydie.
They're in your heart,
and no fire can take them from you.
Also, you have, like,
four million boxes in your car already.
I think you're good.
Okay, let's go.
Let's go. Uh
Um, do you two
want to follow me back to town?
No, you go ahead.
We still have to check on Bert.
- We'll be right behind you. Drive safe.
- Okay, you too. Take care.
- [gentle music playing]
- [sirens continue in background]
It only happened the one time.
But I've relived that moment
every single day.
It's been almost four months
and I want it to stop.
I need it to stop.
So I can move on with my life.
And you believe bringing the defendant
to justice will allow you to do so?
I really hope so.
[Ms. Richardson] Thank you for sharing
your story with the court.
It was very brave of you, Ms. Sheridan.
That said, I am sorry
you had to relive the details again today.
No further questions, Your Honor.
Thank you for being here, Ms. Sheridan.
While the ADA and I may not agree
on the facts of this case,
we do agree that
telling your story was indeed very brave.
Thank you.
If I had been through
what you claim to have been through,
I don't know if I could do it myself.
I'd be a nervous wreck.
But you seemed calm.
Might you have taken anything
to help calm your nerves today?
No, I didn't take anything.
But if you're trying to imply
that I've taken Xanax in the past,
that's no secret.
I had a prescription
to help me with my anxiety.
Well, actually,
I wasn't trying to imply anything,
but as the judge said, you're an attorney.
So if you brought it up, you must feel
it has some bearing on this case.
Is the defense testifying Ms. Sheridan's
thoughts or will they allow her to do so?
[lawyer] I'll rephrase the question.
Did you ever drink alcohol
while taking Xanax?
What about the night in question?
Did you mix Xanax and alcohol then?
I did.
So isn't it possible you don't remember
what you said that night?
I remember every single detail
of that night.
It's seared into my memory.
[lawyer] Really?
So who was voted off of
Dancing With The Stars?
- Objection. Relevance.
- She said she remembers every detail.
Where is this going, counselor?
Okay. Forget what was on TV.
Do you remember Don asking you
to marry him earlier that evening?
I do, but it was offhanded.
He wasn't serious.
Well, according to my client,
it was very serious.
He wanted to marry you.
That is until he learned of your drug
and alcohol problem and changed his mind.
Leaving you heartbroken
and out for vengeance.
No, that is not what happened.
Objection, Your Honor.
All of our temperatures
are running a little hot right now.
So let's take a 30-minute recess
so we can all cool down.
[gavel bangs]
All right, just stay focused on me, okay?
It's kind of hard not to.
You're all up in my face right now.
Hey, it seems like we're gonna get you
off of here and back to the clinic.
- [Kaia] Okay.
- [Doc] Yeah.
Wait! Uh [laughs] This is gonna hurt?
Yeah, like hell.
- Yeah.
- [Kaia] Yeah.
You ready?
- [Kaia] I got you, buddy.
- Yeah.
[Doc] Everyone lift on three.
One, two, three.
[indistinct chatter]
- [explosion]
- [all exclaiming]
- What the hell is that?
- Unspent ammunition.
We gotta get out of here
before someone gets hurt.
- [explosion]
- Where the hell is Brady?
- [woman hysterically] Hazel! Hazel!
- [Brady] Hey!
- [woman] Hazel!
- Hey!
- Is everything all right?
- My daughter.
- Tell me what happened.
- I can't find her.
The last I saw her,
she was playing right there.
I think she ran off into the woods.
Please. She's only six.
I will find her, I promise. Okay?
Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa!
Brady, where you going?
Her daughter's lost out there.
Give me the keys.
All right, here. You take these.
If that fire gets too close, you get
everybody out of here, you hear me?
We're not leaving the forest
till we find your daughter.
- [Jack] What's her name?
- [Brady] Hazel.
- [Jack] Hazel!
- [Brady] Hazel!
[Hope] Hey.
Kaia's fine!
It was someone else
who was injured in the field.
Wait, how did you know her name?
I may be down, but I'm not completely out.
I heard it was just casual,
but it's clear
that you've caught feelings.
Lizzie taught me that phrase.
I have caught feelings, but
I don't know. I don't
I don't want to push.
You know, mess things up.
Do you mind if I offer
some unsolicited advice?
[chuckles] If I did, would that stop you?
Tell her how you feel.
Don't hold back.
Who knows? She might feel the same.
Yeah, but what if she doesn't?
Then at least nothing was left unsaid.
She's okay right now,
but she's a hotshot, Preacher.
A real warrior like you.
You know from experience,
anything can happen in the field.
So good. Thank you.
[emotional music playing]
[Mel] All right, Jay,
so I'm gonna start you on some fluids
while Doc is unpacking
and cleaning your wound.
[laughs] Can you see through my leg?
Well, I sure can.
Wow! Look, I can see China down there.
[grunts] What are you gonna do with that?
It's better if I don't tell you.
What? Only you can tell jokes?
It's saline.
We're gonna just flush out the wound
after Mel administers a local anesthetic.
Is this gonna hurt?
It's okay. It shouldn't hurt very much.
Thank you, all of you,
for taking such good care of me today.
It's our pleasure.
Honestly, I was just
a glorified mover today.
Doc deserves the credit.
It was his call in the field,
and it was the right one.
Well, everyone was pulling
more than their weight today,
on and off the field.
Especially you and Kaia.
Thank you. Thank you for your bravery.
[indistinct chatter]
Lydie! It's about damn time.
What took you so long?
I got lost on a trip down memory lane.
[sighs] Luckily, Lizzie and Denny
found me on their way to Bert's.
- [amber alerts chiming]
- [all muttering]
What is it, Hope?
They just issued an evacuation order
for your zone.
Lizzie and Denny are still out there.
[ominous music playing]
Of all the federal courthouses
in all the towns, in all the world.
[laughs] Um
Are you here testifying in a case?
You know it. What brings you here?
Same thing, actually.
But, uh, we're on recess.
I think I may have
upset the judge with my candor.
- [Mike] What's the case?
- Uh
It's, um
- None of my business. Sorry.
- No, no, it's fine. Um, I'm just
Never mind.
It's nice to see your face.
Always nice to see yours.
Well, hey, give 'em hell.
Take no prisoners, because that's my job.
Brie, can I talk to you for a second?
You got this.
[Brady] Hazel!
- [explosion in distance]
- Hazel!
[Jack] Your mom's
looking for you, sweetheart!
[Brady coughs] We're running out of time.
We're need to split up, cover more ground.
[Jack] No, no, no.
It's too easy to get lost in the smoke.
- Jack, if we don't split up
- Brady.
I am not leaving these woods
without that little girl or you.
All right? We're doing
a ranging ground sweep. Together.
Yeah, okay.
[pensive music playing]
[Muriel] Oof.
- Hey!
- Hey.
You look a little pale.
When was the last time you ate?
I don't know. I think I had
a cheeseburger and a s'more last night.
- Feels like ages ago, though.
- It was.
You need to eat.
[fridge opens]
- Um, is Ava in the waiting room?
- Nope.
We are actually empty right now,
so we can enjoy a proper lunch.
She didn't call either?
No, but service is spotty.
I'm not even sure
if my cell is working at all.
Well, she was supposed to be here
half an hour ago,
and it's been over an hour, so I'm gonna
I'm gonna go check on her.
Uh, Doc and Cameron
should be fine while I'm gone.
At least take some turkey slices with you.
You can wrap them around
the cheese sticks.
- Thank you.
- You want me to go with you?
No, no. I'll be fine.
I mean, besides, the boys need
somebody to look after them, right?
It's the truth.
Those two alone,
they'll burn the place down.
Okay. That was
That was too soon, wasn't it?
- It was
- Okay.
Pretend I didn't say it
and come back in one piece.
[Mel] Okay.
- [Jack coughing]
- [grave music playing]
[flames rushing]
- It's about to get hot in here.
- [fire whooshing]
[Jack grunts]
[Brady] Jack! Jack.
You all right?
[Brady] Hazel!
- Yeah, I'm good.
- Hazel!
[Preacher] Okay, thanks.
- Still no word?
- [Hope] No.
[Nick] Lydie?
How did you get here so fast?
We just sent out the alert.
I followed the original fire plan
- Of my own volition.
- [Nick] Hope.
Okay, fine.
I sent Lizzie and Denny out there
After I told you I'd handle it?
You went behind my back
and put lives in danger?
Well, if it weren't for them,
I'd still be out there.
Yeah, but now they're out there.
And I just got word
that the cell towers are down.
So unless they're listening
to their car radio,
they have no way of knowing
they're in danger.
I don't know if Lizzie and Denny
even know what a car radio is.
- Can't you send somebody for them?
- We can't do that now.
The fire's somewhere between
a rank four and a rank five,
which means it's so bad
that they're evacuating the firefighters.
All we can do now is pray
that they get back safely.
Nick, I'm
- I'm sorry.
- Hope, this was a big mistake.
A mistake that proves
you're not fit to be mayor.
[grave music playing]
[Denny sputters]
- [Lizzie] Can you believe this?
- I've never seen anything like it.
- Denny, stop!
- [flames whooshing]
[Lizzie] What do we do now?
- [Denny] We turn around.
- What about Bert?
Hopefully he's already left. I don't think
anybody's getting around this.
[grave music continues]
[judge] I will ask you to disregard
the defense's previous attempts
to characterize Ms. Sheridan's motives
for being here today.
You may proceed.
But no more theatrics
from either of you.
Thank you, Your Honor. I'll rephrase.
Ms. Sheridan.
Did your good friend,
who just so happens to be the ADA,
tell you that her case
against my client was weak
and she needed more women
to come forward to help solidify it?
She told me my testimony
could make a difference,
but only after I told her
I was planning to press charges of my own.
To get back at Don.
[Brie] Absolutely not.
I've been dumped
plenty of times in my life.
I've never gotten back at anybody
by accusing them of rape.
why didn't you report it
four months ago, then?
Why wait until your friend
brought a case against him?
because I was scared to do this.
As we've established, I'm a lawyer.
I know how cases like this go.
Lawyers like you try to destroy
women like me on the stand
so the jury won't believe
one single word of my story.
Well, now who's attempting
to characterize whose motives?
I think what you're saying
is you didn't press charges before
because you knew if it was your own case,
your story would never hold up in court.
No further questions.
Prosecution would like to redirect.
I assumed you would. Proceed.
Is that what you were saying?
That you were scared to report
'cause you were afraid
your story won't hold up in court?
[Brie] No.
No, what I was trying to say
is that I didn't report it
because I didn't want to sit here
and be discredited
by some defense attorney
playing the hero to her client.
I know how this goes.
I've played the hero before.
But now [chuckles]
I know real heroes aren't well-paid,
well-dressed lawyers
making well-rehearsed arguments
from the safety of their courtroom.
Real heroes
are the ones with the courage
to do what's right.
Who walk toward the things
most people would run away from.
- [Hazel screams]
- [Jack] There she is.
[Brady] Hazel.
- Come on out.
- [Jack] Put this around your mouth.
[Brady] There you go.
Your mom's looking for you.
We're gonna go get her, okay?
- [Hazel coughing]
- [Brady] You're all right!
[Brie] They're the people
who push past their fears.
[uplifting music playing]
[Brie] Who face the unknown.
[uplifting music continues]
[EKG beeping regularly]
[EKG beeping rapidly]
- [Cameron] His heart rate's spiking.
- [Doc] We need to push fluids.
[Cameron] On it.
[EKG beeping rapidly]
[uplifting music continues]
[Brie] And hold on to their faith
even when the deck
is stacked against them.
And I hope
if you ever end up in my position,
that you'll be able
to hold on to your faith too.
Because, statistically,
in a country where one in six women
are sexually assaulted,
and where more women
are killed by their domestic partners
in this century
than men who have died in war
someday you just might.
[moving music playing]
No further questions, Your Honor.
[attendants murmuring]
[Brie exhales]
Don't you have somewhere better to be?
Thought I'd stick around.
Make sure you were okay.
[chuckles] I am not okay.
Not yet anyway, but
for the first time in a long time,
I think I might be soon.
Well, if you ever want to talk about it
I'm happy to listen.
I would like that.
- [phone ringing]
- Oh.
Yeah, it's my mom. Just
Sorry, one sec.
Hey, Mom.
What? What's going on?
[tense music playing]
All right, all right. Okay, slow down.
Okay, I will be there as soon as I can.
There's a wildfire in Virgin River.
- [Jack] We got her.
- [Brady] You're okay. She's all right.
A tree top exploded and it scared her.
- She was hiding.
- [Hazel] It was so loud, Mommy!
- [woman] I know, sweetie, you're safe now.
- [Brady] Come on.
[Hazel coughing]
[Brady] Okay. I got her.
One, two, three, up. There you go.
All right.
I'm gonna follow you back to town.
Thanks for having my back today.
Well, thanks for having mine in Iraq.
[amber alert chiming]
Hey, Brady! Brady! Listen, I gotta go!
Mel might be in trouble!
- Go, go, go! I'll meet you at the bar.
- Okay.
- [EKG beeping rapidly]
- [tense music continues]
[Doc] What are we missing here?
What are we missing?
- [Cameron] He's coding.
- [EKG flatlining]
[Doc] I'll start chest compressions.
[tense music continues]
[EKG flatlining]
- Oh God, what are we gonna do?
- I have no idea.
Oh my God.
[dramatic music playing]
[baby crying]
Oh my God.
[crying continues]
[dramatic music building]
[crying fades]
