Who Killed Sara? (2021) s03e02 Episode Script

Medusa Complex

1 According to Greek mythology, Medusa had serpents coming out of her head.
And if she stared at anybody, she could turn them all to stone.
She symbolized the scorned lady.
A tragic existence, being incapable of love or being loved.
It's a thing that I call the Medusa Complex.
Behind the rational face we put forward in life is a fear of madness.
[glass shatters.]
And we don't dare to question our values or the role that we have in our society for fear that we would cast doubt on our sanity.
As with Medusa, all of us are condemned to loneliness.
[audience applauding.]
Hello? Sara? I'm Sara Guzmán, a friend of Nicandro.
Why are you calling? What's wrong with Nicandro? Uh, yeah, um, I'm Well, I'm a bit worried about him, sir.
I saw him selling and using drugs.
What kind of drugs? Uh, marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine.
Sir, your your son's been selling drugs to his friends for months.
- He has a network with friends and - [Nicandro.]
What are you doing? [tense music playing.]
[busy signal.]
[siren blaring.]
Put your hands up now! We've got De la Cortina in custody.
[tense music continues.]
[tense music swells.]
[music stops.]
Papa, please get me out of here.
I I'm begging.
I'll do whatever you want me to do.
- Please, Papa - I'm so disappointed in Daniela and you.
Both of my kids not worth a peso.
Your mother didn't know how to raise you.
I don't know why I did it, Papa.
I swear it wasn't serious.
You have to believe me.
- I don't know - Shut your mouth.
I was the one who called the police.
And I am also the only one who can get you out of this hellhole.
From now on, you're working for me.
Yeah, okay, Papa.
That would be great.
I'll do whatever you say.
Whatever you want.
We're going to get rid of Sara.
Sara Guzmán has to be wiped off the map.
Understood? [tense music playing.]
[tense music swells.]
[music stops.]
[theme music playing.]
A NETFLIX SERIES Man, son of a bitch.
[keys jangle.]
[ominous music playing.]
Today is the deadline to pay the Hungarian.
He obviously won't rest until he's been paid.
I know you're worried about paying for our father's prostitutes, but we have way bigger problems to deal with.
Alanís was murdered, Sara's psychiatrist.
And that means we're all in danger.
You know if your father's back in Mexico? No.
No clue.
Why? He was killed by a shot between the eyes.
The signature shot of your papa.
I think it's no coincidence.
I need your help, Álex.
Or you know who's gonna end up dead in the cemetery? I will.
You'll pay those bastards today.
Yeah, but how if we don't have any cash to give them? [suspenseful music playing.]
I know what money we're gonna use to pay those dickheads.
[tense music playing.]
Rodolfo! What a delight! It's so good to see ya! Gentlemen.
Let's get this wrapped up, all right? Here's the cash.
Not sure how you fellas roll in Hungary, but here in Mexico, it's a bit rude to count it in front of your guests.
It's all there.
I came all this way, and I know what would happen to me if it wasn't.
This is the, uh, the combination to unlock the bag.
Keep this code safe.
Repeat after me.
This code is simple.
I chose the combination in a very special way, all right? [Rodolfo.]
The first number is eight for the number of times you and my father did business together.
The second is two.
The number of times we've seen each other's faces.
Then six.
Because per my calculations, the Lazcanos have paid you six million dollars for your "goods.
" Seven is my lucky number.
And zero is how many times you'll threaten me again, you fucking son of a bitch.
Whoo-hoo! Fuck yeah! Motherfucker! [tires squealing.]
Whoo! Álex, you're a fucking genius, dude! Fuckin' right! [exhales.]
The nurse is no longer a problem.
[keys jangling.]
I can't forgive a betrayal.
You and I had a deal, Marifer.
We were a team.
I helped change your life.
- It's occupied.
- I'll make it quick.
No one should see us together.
So your friend, Sara, how close are you? Sara's my best friend.
I need you to help me out.
I need you to be part of my team and keep a close eye on your little friend.
I'll pay you very well.
Much more than you can imagine.
And you won't have any problems for the rest of your life.
What do you think about that? Can you do it? What, did you think I wouldn't find out what happened with Álex? Turn up the volume.
What about Nicandro? You told me you killed my sister, and you cut the parachute cables.
And now you mention Nicandro and Dr.
Alanís, Sarah's psychiatrist.
You thought you could make a fool out of me.
What was your plan? To just ruin all all that we've achieved? To put us at risk? This is no way to live your life, right? Hell would be a more comfortable place than this.
And I I can help you find a way to get you there.
[tense music playing.]
Shall we try it now? [whimpers softly.]
[tense music swells.]
I was looking for you.
I heard you'd be here.
I thought you'd give me permission to to see her.
I wanna hug her.
She's my damn sister, okay? Well, she's making really great progress, so - I wouldn't like her - Papa, what do you want from her? Daniela's been locked up here for too many years.
Please let me see her already.
[video game beeping.]
- What's up, dude? - What do you mean, "What's up"? You gonna feed us or not? I'm so hungry, I can barely see the screen up there.
- Bro, get a pizza.
- Are you serious? It's like you're the pregnant one, asshole.
- Wait.
Who's pregnant? - No one, dude.
- Let's see what you got in that kitchen.
- Okay, dude.
- Just because you're losing.
- [chuckles.]
Thanks, what a guy.
- You want anything? - Uh, no, thanks.
Right on.
[video game beeping continues.]
Daniela? Um Well, if you need Nicandro, he's with Rodolfo in the kitchen.
Are you okay? Daniela, wait.
Dani? Dani, if you need anything, we can go get Nicandro or your parents.
Hey, hey, hey, hey.
It's okay.
[Daniela sobs.]
It's all right, hmm? [Daniela sobs.]
Daniela is really weird.
She's a little bit crazy.
That's why she's in a nuthouse.
Hang on a sec, dude.
She's not crazy.
She just fell in love with a girl, and her parents decided Whatever, bro, that's gross.
The fuck, man? - How is it gross, you asshole? - It's not normal, asshole.
So now you're gonna be like Mama? Like some saint? - Nah, fuck that, Rodolfo.
- All because she fell in love with a girl? I mean, she looks fucked up, man.
Like, what did they do? Daniela.
Five minutes.
We couldn't save any of your assets, Mariana, which means the tax department will proceed with the seizure immediately.
And your bank accounts are also frozen.
My kids grew up in that house.
The banks also went ahead and canceled all your credit cards.
And there's an issue with the casino fire.
The cameras revealed that it wasn't an accident.
It was arson.
By Elisa.
Well, obviously, the insurance company won't reimburse you for a cent.
Be grateful we could protect your daughter from criminal charges, okay? That was all of my family's money.
And Chema? There's no money left to pay for his bail either.
Or a private lawyer, for that matter.
[suspenseful music playing.]
They gotta pay you.
Those assholes are too chummy, you know what I mean? One minute, homey.
I've got business.
All right.
I need to make that phone call.
You already know what I want for the battery.
[phone vibrating.]
[phone vibrating.]
Yeah, hello? Wait.
Who? Chema? - Hey.
- I know, but I'm trying.
No touching! Thank you.
Appreciate it.
It's good to see you, brother.
Yeah, for sure.
You can't imagine what they put me through to be able to call you.
Hey, we'll get you out.
I swear, okay? We're doing all that we can do to try to find Listen to me.
I need you to find Alma Solares.
She's an old friend of Lorenzo's from law school.
Please get in touch with her, and tell her she needs to help me.
[sobs softly.]
And I really can't pay for anything, but I didn't know who else to call.
Álex [sobs.]
I'm begging you.
[tense music playing.]
Look at me.
Make you my little papusa, huh? [Chema.]
No, no! I can't survive in here any longer.
[yelps, grunts.]
[Chema grunting.]
[Chema grunting.]
I'll take care of it, Chema.
That asshole won't touch you again.
Not that guy or anyone else here.
- [Chema crying.]
- [Álex.]
Look me in the eye.
Chema, look me in the eye.
Look at me now, damn it! No one will touch you again, man.
I swear.
You're not alone, dude.
I left you alone.
I never went to see you.
[Chema sobs.]
And I did nothing to get you out, man.
I didn't even give you the fucking videos you asked for.
And I was lying.
I said they were lost, but I The truth is I burned them.
I burned them because I was ashamed.
I used to videotape you a lot when you weren't looking.
In the shower.
Forgive me.
I was such an idiot.
I didn't know how to control my hormones.
I wasn't I wasn't able to control my feelings for you.
There's nothing to forgive.
I'm gonna help you and get you out of here.
Please don't fail me, okay? [sniffles.]
Don't let me down, brother.
[percussive music playing.]
[music fades.]
I'm gonna need protection for José María Lazcano.
You're the warden of this prison, and you're the only one capable of doing that.
Chema's being raped.
This happened on your watch! Guzmán, it's better to forget what happened in this prison.
- To us, the past is not a concern - Why shouldn't I talk about the past? You don't want me to remind everyone how an inmate, right here in your prison, became a hacker in this office with your help? You promised to keep this between me and you.
There's social media now.
You know how fast I could make this thing go viral? Maybe ten seconds.
And to protect Chema, I'm willing to do that and much more.
Trust me.
I didn't do anything.
It was self-defense.
They started with me.
The guards disagree, you see.
And you believe everything they tell you? If not, then go ask your wife.
What do you know about my wife? [Álex.]
You're here day and night.
Just like the rest of us.
You don't think she's looking anywhere else? Okay.
I'm gonna put you in an isolation cell right now.
You know that I can find out if she's being unfaithful.
I can figure it out, but I'm gonna need you to provide me with a few things.
[phone clatters.]
Where the fuck did you get that? Your wife's passwords are not great.
Did she say she was leaving with friends for the weekend? That's not true.
I can find out anything you want about anyone.
But I'm gonna need access permanently to high-speed Internet, all right? And I need a mentor.
Not by just anyone.
A hacker.
The best.
Oh, and one more thing.
No one asks any questions.
No sleep till daylight, homey ♪ ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN You can get replaced Like safelight, homey ♪ And I'm going full speed ♪ [hacker.]
This is the most important thing.
But you have to remember, the backdoor is vital to be able to initiate a quick action.
THE INVISIBLE INTERNE No, we ain't the same ♪ When I come through, they gonna say Ain't nobody else out like he ♪ THE SECRETS OF THE DEEP WEB [song ends.]
Not only will you protect José María Lazcano, you're also gonna be calling Alma Solares.
She's a criminal lawyer.
Ask for her to represent him and pay her anything she asks for.
And I mean anything.
Are we good with that? I hope you like it and find it useful.
Thanks, Frida.
Let's see.
[both laugh.]
It's the same one I wear on my legs as well.
It's so important that we show some gratitude.
And if there's one thing Father Benedicto, my confessor, has been able to teach me, it's how to use our own bodies as penance.
We have to learn how to have more gratitude for our children.
The children.
Yesterday, Daniela returned to therapy.
I'd like to know more about the center.
Where is it? [Frida.]
It's a house in Cuernavaca.
Reinaldo is so proud of it.
And why are you so, uh, interested in the therapy? Do you suspect, uh Not Rodolfo? [laughs.]
No, no! No.
Rodolfo has a girlfriend.
- Of course.
- Yes.
José María? [tense music playing.]
Well, you'll love the place and the therapists.
Daniela is so very pleased with her support groups, her her friends there, and group therapy.
These things can happen to girls and, of course, to some boys.
And when their fathers are absent, and they have an extremely close, uh, relationship to their mothers, it's our fault that they turn out that way.
But Reinaldo has the cure.
Thanks for the information.
That, uh, was Rodolfo.
The Hungarian guys are dealt with.
That's great.
Can you please explain to me how you manage to fix everyone's problems, hmm? [kisses.]
And now I have to help Chema as well, as fast as possible.
- Wait.
- I know.
It says here that Sara got in the parachute at 4:05 p.
Five minutes after that, she fell into the water.
[man echoing.]
Sara! Write this down.
The moment she landed in the water, Rodolfo and I jumped in to rescue her.
Sara! And after that I don't remember it well because it's in pieces.
I mean, it's fragmented.
[Álex echoing.]
Sara! The next thing I remember, we were all driving to the hospital.
But what I definitely remember perfectly is when we got to the hospital - She's my sister! - You can't be here.
There was a clock hanging on one of the walls.
- Young man - Sara! - Sara! - Come with me.
You can't be here.
[tense music playing.]
This says that Sara was admitted to the emergency room at 5:00 p.
But look.
Here on the death certificate, it says that Sara died at 7:28 p.
[Elisa breathes deeply.]
But we know that's not true because eight months later, she gave birth to her son.
[Elisa scoffs.]
So what doesn't sound right to me is if Sara is still around, then who was buried at the cemetery? The real question is, what happened to Sara between 5:00 and 7:30 that evening? What did they do to her that night? [tense music playing.]
[indistinct chatter on TV.]
[news anchor on TV speaking indistinctly.]
[TV turns off.]
[whimpering softly.]
Now I won't ever see you free again.
[ominous music playing.]
No! No, I'm not leaving until Dr.
Alanís speaks to me.
I need to know why my daughter would write something so terrible.
Lucía, I explained.
- The doctor can't see you right now - I need an answer, or I'll go crazy! You've always been so nice to me.
So please help me.
My daughter didn't deserve to live this way.
I'll give this to the doctor.
Don't worry.

[tense music swells to crescendo.]
[footsteps approaching.]
Save the resurrection speech, okay? Rodolfo told me it was a bunch of lies.
I didn't come here with a speech.
I'm here to say I'm sorry.
The dead don't apologize.
If they're dead, no.
But I'm still alive, all right? And even more so now that I'm by your side.
And now is the moment where I just throw myself into your arms.
And we live happily ever after.
Well, that's not going to happen.
Because you left me penniless.
It's all gone.
Where'd the money go? I don't know.
They took all of it.
It disappeared from my account in the blink of an eye.
A thief stealing from a thief.
I'm not a thief.
I'm here to own up.
I've lost it all, César.
My cash, my family, my children.
For defending you.
But you know what upsets me most about it? That I was scared that I could have lost you.
I feel nothing.
Let go of me.
Get out.
I don't need a corpse I buried already.
Pay close attention, César Lazcano.
Because it's the last time we'll see each other's faces.
[inmate 2.]
Move over, asshole.
Hey, man, can't you see I was here first? Man, you put in time at the gym, didn't you? Too bad you never kicked anyone's ass.
Back the fuck up, bitch.
You can thank your homey Álex.
[chattering indistinctly.]
You here to talk about your friend José María Lazcano? Not this time, no.
I'm here because I need your help to exhume my sister's remains.
If I'm correct, my sister Sara is alive.
And I can only prove it if I dig up her grave.
Do you have the death certificate and her report? This is much bigger than bureaucracy.
And if I'm correct, it's it's very dangerous.
I need your help here.
What's up? Álex.
