02x10 - Quid Pro Ho

Previously on Lucifer...

Dan: You stalked your father's murderer right before he was killed.

Chloe: I know this looks bad.

Whoever killed Joe Fields killed my father.

Lucifer: What, you think the warden did it?

Chloe: This man killed my father.

You tore apart my family.

I can get you whatever you want.

All I want is for you to know that John Decker's kid got you.

Dan: His name is Boris Sokolov. He connects criminals, but he always keeps his own hands clean.

People call me Human Lie Detector.

So, you point me in the right direction or I'm gonna make your life a living hell.

Mom, this is Lucifer. Lucifer, Mom.

Mama Decker.

You shall remain right here on Earth amongst the creatures you so despise.

You're going to send me into the life of Charlotte Richards?

I thought I'd dive into my employment.

I was pretty surprised when you called me.

Mom: You are fairly attractive.

The only place I've ever felt wanted or respected...

Is here with humanity?!

This is my home!

Deal with it, Mother!

Mom: You seem attached to these creatures and I can't figure out why.

Let me at least buy you dinner tonight to celebrate.

(beeping)

Excuse me.

Yeah. (chuckles)

I'll get it for you.

Thank you.

Amenadiel: You can't kill her, Mom.

Well, of course I can.

I just press this button.

Mom, please... give me the detonator.

No. This little bug is the reason that Lucifer doesn't want to go home.

Squash her, problem solved.

Are you really gonna make me force it away from you?

Trust me, you don't want to do that.

But I can't let you kill Chloe, Mom.

(grunts)

Since when can you...

I tried to warn you.

Apparently, paltry human flesh can't contain my divinity.

Oh, here we go.

Bomb's in the car.

So exciting.

(giggles)

Mom, stop!

I am trying to help you.

I know Lucifer better than he knows himself and if you kill Chloe, he won't rest until he finds out who did it and when he does, Mom, he will hate you forever.

Come on.

One little human can't mean more to him than his family.

He killed Uriel to protect her.

Well... what's so damn special about this one?

That I don't know.

But, Mom, the bottom line is if we want Luci to go home with us, then we need to make sure that it's his decision to leave Chloe behind.

Well, that was anticlimactic.

(groans)

(shouts)

So, I need to find a more subtle way to end Lucifer's silly crush.

(sighs)

Linda: Tell me everything.

Well, there's... nothing to say, really.

You had a date... with Chloe.

That's a big deal, Lucifer.

I need to hear about it.

You know, as your therapist.

Well, for one, I wouldn't say it was a big deal and... it wasn't a date, just dinner... more like a snack, actually, between friends.

Oh, how was the food?

I've heard their branzino is amazing.

Well, yeah, it's... hard to say, really.

Too caught up in the moment to notice?

Caught up, in-in a way, yes.

You chickened out, didn't you?

(laughing): What?

I'm the Devil, Doctor.

I don't chicken out.

I just simply thought that she should enjoy the food without any... distractions.

Listen, you know, I get it.

Our last breakthrough spooked you and now you're running scared.

I don't "run scared" any more than I "chicken."

(chuckles) Not literally.

But you're avoiding the truth.

Also known as lying.

That I know I don't do... ever.

But yet... you are lying, Lucifer...

(laughs)

...to yourself.

I owe you an explanation.

Really? Why?

Was it for... leaving me all alone at a restaurant so the busboy could give me pitiful glances all night?

I know what your explanation is and I don't want to know her name, especially not today.

Actually, Detective, that isn't what I was going to say, I...

Look, Lucifer, I don't have time for this.

I was just on my way out.

Besides, this is my fault.

I should've known how selfish and thoughtless you can be.

Lucifer.

(chuckles)

How thoughtful.

Penelope.

You are the sweetest to come support us on such a difficult day.

Oh. I bet you an arm and a leg, Mom, that he has no idea what today is.

Well, that's rather unwise of you to wager your lovely extremities, Detective.

Particularly as I'm perfectly aware of what today is, actually.

It's a very difficult day... because...

Today.

Today is...

The first day.

The first day... of the of... trial of the trial of... my dad's killer.

My dad's killer!

Nietzsche? No, wait.

Your dad's killer. Yes, no, I knew that.

I knew that. That's why I'm here, to support you.

Not talk about myself 'cause that would be selfish.

Yeah.

So... consider me an emotional jockstrap for the Decker family jewels. (chuckles)

(whistling)

Hey.

Hmm, someone's chirpy for a Monday morning.

Yes, I am.

Why?

What's going on?

What, do I need an excuse to be happy?

Hmm, I mean, you're whistling.

You've been... working out lately.

Mm.

(sniffs)

Musk-scented aftershave.

Did you... get laid?

(laughs)

(scoffs) No.

Oh, no, no.

Don't waste your poker face on me, buddy.

I know that grin.

I'm still in shock.

I knew it.

She's gorgeous.

Yeah, well, it's not like you're Quasimodo.

No, no, no, no.

Trust me, she is way out of my league.

I mean, she is goddess-like.

And she came back for seconds.

Then maybe she's the one who sent you the mystery package.

A mystery package?

Mm-hmm.

I don't recognize the return address.

Oh, jeez.

God!

(sighs)

Wish I could say it was my first.

That's Boris.

Chloe's gonna lose it.

So poised.

The detective obviously gets her strength from you.

(scoffs) This?

It's just acting.

Sadly, I've had... practice.

I played this role before, 16 years ago.

Well, maybe it's like butt stuff.

Easier the second time around.

(whispering): The severed head of Boris Sokolov just arrived at the precinct.

(whispering): That's horrible!

Who's Boris?

He's the prosecution's key witness.

He's our key witness.

He was the only person that could connect Perry to the Russian gang. I mean, without him, the entire case could fall apart.

Oh, God.

How very convenient for Mr. Perry.

(sighs)

(whispering): This is the worst thing that could be happening right now.

What are you up to now, Mother?

I had no idea Charlotte Richards was defending Perry.

Wishing we hadn't saved her life about now.

Well, not to worry, Detective.

I hear Charlotte is a changed woman since her disappearance, so... maybe she's not the shark she once was.

At least not in the courtroom.

All rise.

Court is now in session.

The Honorable Judge Estrada presiding.

Given the sudden death of the State's number one witness, I assume the defense is moving for a dismissal?

A motion for dismissal?

Why would I want that, Your Honor?

(chuckles) Looks like Jaws has been harpooned.

Mom: My apologies.

I'm a little... out of practice.

Um...

Oh, I see.

You're saying that with Boris dead, the State doesn't have enough evidence to proceed?

So, if I don't move for dismissal, then he'll probably make a complete fool of himself?

Your Honor, our case was and still is unshakable.

The State has plenty of other evidence that'll prove 16 years ago, the defendant, Perry Smith, murdered Officer John Decker and paid Joe Fields to go to prison for that crime.

Oh, and when Fields wanted out of their deal, Perry also killed him.

Your Honor, with all due respect, granting a dismissal would be ludicrous.

Boris Sokolov's death, while undoubtedly tragic, changes nothing.

Well, the defense agrees.

What?

His death doesn't change a single thing.

With or without Mr. Sokolov's testimony, my client should never have been charged with these crimes.

Well... seeing as both parties agree, the trial will proceed immediately.

Actually, Your Honor, the State would like to, uh, request a continuance.

In light of the death of our key witness, our office needs time to, uh, reexamine its strategy.

But I'm confused, Your Honor.

Didn't we just hear the prosecution say their case was "unshakable"?

We did.

Request denied.

Session will resume after lunch.

What the hell are you doing, Mother?

Oh, calm down, Lucifer.

This isn't pleasant for me, either.

Oh, yes, I can see you're suffering terribly.

I was good up there, wasn't I?

Not sure why humans spend so much time in law school.

Two nights seemed plenty.

Mum.

I had to find a way to open your eyes.

You need to see that this Chloe you so adore isn't worthy of you.

(scoffs)

I admit I enjoy working with her, but adore, that's a bit much.

Oh, please. You've sacrificed more for her than you ever have for anyone else.

Have you forgotten? You killed your brother, my son, to protect her.

Do you think there's anything even remotely similar that she would do for you?

I suppose...

I don't know.

Well, if all goes according to plan in that courtroom, you will know.

Know that she doesn't deserve you, because she doesn't care about you like you care about her.

You need to see that you're not meant to be together.

You belong with your family.

Which is why I have to do this.

Do what, Mum?

What sort of evil plan are you concocting?

And please don't tell me it began by killing Boris.

Oh, actually, that was just a happy twist of fate.

I was gonna blow Chloe up, but Amenadiel talked me out of it.

You what?!

Mother, I swear, if you hurt her, I will rip...

Well, looks like your brother was right.

Just promise me that you won't touch her.

I'm not going to hurt anyone.

Lucifer, you promise me, whatever that was, that it doesn't affect the trial.

First of all, Detective, there is no "that."

And secondly, rest assured, everything will be okay.

I've got this.

You looking for Boris' forensics report?

(sighs)

Uh-huh.

Hasn't come in yet.

Ella should have it any minute now.

I know this isn't my case, but I'm freaking out, Dan.

I can't let Perry get away with everything.

You won't.

You didn't see Charlotte Richards in court today.

(high-pitched): Char...? (clears his throat)

I'm sorry. Uh, Charlotte Richards is, uh, defending Perry?

Yeah.

Really? She's that good?

Yes, she's the best.

Which is why it would be helpful if we could...

Well, if you could tie Perry to Boris' murder.

Okay, well, motive and M.O. line up.

Boris' tongue was cut out.

So the killer was sending a really clear message...

Loose lips get their head clipped.

Perry did this so Boris couldn't testify, I know it.

But hasn't he been behind bars since you arrested him?

Yeah, but he could have orchestrated it in prison.

It's also his M.O.

Exactly, and if Perry is good at anything, it's making other people pay for his crimes.

Okay, well, whoever Perry hired to do this was one sharp dude.

The cut on Boris' neck is extremely precise.

I'm thinking industrial-size professional slicer.

Listen, I'm gonna do everything I can to find him.

Even if I have to interview the owner of every single meat slicer in L.A.

Ella: You won't have to.

There was also non-human DNA on Boris.

Swine, to be exact.

A unique cross-bred for its delicious meat.

And there's only one place that sells it.

Ah!

Hi.

That's so sweet of you, but you don't have to stick around.

Trials can be so boring.

Well, not this one.

What do you mean?

Mr. Morningstar, we're ready for you.

Wonderful. Lovely. Right.

Off I go to shield you from that Quid Pro Ho, Detective.

Lucifer, what are you doing?

Well, I figured there's no reason for us to lose our heads just because Boris lost his.

I swear to tell the truth, he whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me Dad.

Mr. Morningstar, you were there when Boris was arrested.

Right? Working with Detective Espinoza.

That is correct.

Except I call him Detective Douche.

(laughter)

But that's another story.

So would you please describe to us what happened?

Yes, I'd love to, actually.

May-may I have the floor?

By all means.

Lucifer: Thank you.

I'm going to need...

Hello.

May I borrow your scarf?

Your Honor, is this necessary?

Well, you want the full story, don't you?

I mean, the Devil's in the details.

Thank you ever so much.

Right. Myself and Detective Douche...

Sorry, Detective Espinoza...

Were asked by the LAPD to perform a sting operation.

Not the singer.

(laughter)

So we had to go undercover at Boris' bathhouse.

Guns of steel...

Got up there... (imitated slashing sound)

Walked over like he's constantly got a gun between his legs...

Boris looked me in the eye, and he said, (Russian accent): "People call me human lie detector."

He was going to kill...

Shook my hand like some kind of Roman warrior...

...and it was sealed, and I handed over the investigation to Detective Decker.

Thank you.

(laughter, applause)

Dan: I got a question.

Do you ever get the feeling like you've been used?

You mean, by... Oh, I don't know...

The woman who's defending the killer of your ex-wife's dad?

What?

Charlotte Richards is the gorgeous lady you slept with, right?

How the hell did you know that?

Well, I saw a long, honey-blonde hair on your coat the other day.

It was curlier than Chloe's. And then, I spotted a smudge of lipstick on your cuff... Burgundy shade.

Bold, but not too sexy. Lawyer color.

Really?

No. I just saw your butt pucker when Chloe mentioned her name in the lab this morning.

God.

Why are you so worried?

I mean, you didn't tell her anything about the case that she could use in court, right?

I don't think so, but...

There you go.

Mezcal cocktails, man.

Oof. Those sneak up on you.

She did keep wanting to talk about our exes, and all I thought was, you know what, she's so easy to talk to.

She's so sympathetic.

God, I'm such an idiot.

Hey...

No, her taking Perry's case right after we...

It can't be a coincidence.

Why not?

Maybe she really just likes you.

Yeah.

44.

Hi. We'll take the headless body of a dude named Boris, please.

I was going to call you guys.

I was just... scared.

A few days ago, this guy approached me.

Big creepy dude.

He demanded the keys to use the equipment after hours.

No questions asked, unless I wanted to end up in the sausage myself.

Do you know his name?

No.

Asian, big.

Very scary.

But the scar on his neck it's very distinctive.

Thank you, Mr. Morningstar.

What a, uh, vivid picture.

It's almost as if Boris himself just testified.

(quietly): Except a more handsome version.

Oh, stop it, Judy.

(chuckles)

(clears throat) Thank you.

Right actually, to that, I would like to add one more thing, if I may...

I think we've had enough, Your Honor.

Shh! Please... continue Luc...

Mr. Morningstar.

Thank you, my darling.

Yes, I'd just like to say, for the record, the LAPD, and Detective Decker, in particular, acted impeccably on this case.

This whole courtroom, nay, the entire city can rest assured that someone as honest, trustworthy, and reliable as Detective Decker is out there protecting them.

She is... truly good.

And I don't mean in bed.

I wouldn't know.

That's how good she is.

Thank you.

Miss Richards?

Your witness.

I have no questions at this time.

(thunder crashes)

Hey!

That's Chloe's car.

What are you looking for?

Hey.

I was, um...

You.

I was looking for you.

Really?

Yeah, I've missed you.

It's true, I still think about you, Maze.

Every day. And every time that I see you, it's...

I miss you, too.

It's like fireworks, isn't it?

(chuckles)

But are you sure that's the kind you're looking for?

Or was it this?

One... tell your mother no one is hurting Chloe on my watch.

And, two...

Don't ever lie to me like that again.

Stedman: And what did Boris have to say when you interrogated him?

He confessed that he routinely provided fall guys for the Russian gang that runs the prison where the defendants worked since the late '90s.

Stedman: And is there anything else that is remarkable about this prison?

It is the very prison whose corruption John Decker was investigating when he was murdered 16 years ago.

Holy cow.

It's all so coincidental, isn't it?

Just like the odd timing of Boris' murder.

I withdraw that, Your Honor.

No further questions.

Thank you, Detective.

I have no questions for this witness.

Stedman: The prosecution rests, Your Honor.

Your turn to shine, Ms. Richards.

As its first witness, the defense would like to recall Lucifer Morningstar.

Oh, it's fine.

Just one small question, Mr. Morningstar.

And please remember that you're still under oath.

Who was first on the Fields crime scene?

First on the scene was the detective, I believe.

I'm sorry, which detective?

Detective Decker.

Mom: Are you sure? How do you know?

Lucifer: Quite sure. Yeah, she told me.

It's kind of strange, isn't it, for the man accused of killing John Decker to be found dead by Decker's own daughter, Chloe Decker?

Objection, Your Honor. Relevance?

I'm getting to that.

Would you please read who, according to the official police report, was the first officer on the scene?

(whispering): What's wrong?

I'll tell you later.

Well, it says Detective Espinoza.

I thought you said Chloe Decker was an impeccable detective.

Objection, Your Honor!

No, I-I'd like to answer that.

She is. That's why she took herself off the investigation immediately.

But not until after she'd found her dad's killer dead?

(groans)

Stedman: Objection!

What's he objecting to... Air quotes?

I'm simply stating that if what we just heard is true, then there's a very plausible alternative story to the one that the State is presenting.

Chloe Decker had motive, opportunity, and the LAPD to protect her and help her frame an innocent man for her personal vendetta.

With all due respect, Your Honor, Chloe Decker is not on trial here.

Mom: And my client shouldn't be, either.

Because it appears he is the victim of the LAPD's incompetence.

Unless, of course, the report is right, and it is you that is lying, Mr. Morningstar?

What you're implying is preposterous.

The Detective would never hurt anyone.

But yes.

What I said is the truth.

Under oath or otherwise.

I don't lie.

Lucifer: Detective?

Please.

Trust me, you do not want to talk to me right now.

You're right, I don't. You look scary.

But look, I apologize for my controversial testimony, but I was clearly bamboozled.

You didn't expect me to lie on the stand, did you?

It's not about your answers.

It's about Charlotte's questions.

She wouldn't have even asked them unless she already knew I was first on scene.

Let's see. Who could've told her?

Detective, I didn't.

You say that, but you also said your relationship with Charlotte wouldn't affect this trial.

It just did.

Detective!

♪ ♪

Charlotte?

How could you do this to me?

What exactly?

I've done several things to you.

Did you sleep with me to get intel on this case?

Of course, but it's not like you didn't get anything out of it.

"Mind altering," I believe you called it.

Yeah, literally, apparently.

Because I don't remember telling you anything about this case.

Did you roofie me or something?

I didn't need to.

I've learned s*x puts your gender into a mild coma.

Offered the perfect window to go through your phone.

So, maybe... next time, you should put your phone away before we have the s*x.

"Next time"?

Mm-hmm.

Are you insane?

(whispers): You tell me.

(sighs)

Linda: I wish I could say that I'm surprised Maze blew up your car.

She is...

Maze.

I know, right?

Slightest provocation, and she turns into a little...

Hellion?

Exactly.

Let me ask you though...

Why do you think that she reacted so... passionately?

Because she's a complete maniac fueled by rage and violence.

Now, as your friend, not your... therapist, you feel you did nothing at all to anger her?

Well, s...

Maybe not nothing.

I may have obscured the truth a bit.

Otherwise known as lying.

Linda, I had no choice. You have to understand that.

Oh, I do. Oh, I do. You were... you were dealing with matters of great importance.

So important, you feel justified to act any way you see fit.

Even if that means hurting people you care about.

You "did what you had to do."

(exhales)

That's, uh... that's what I did to you.

I treated Maze the same way that I treated you.

Yeah, except I'm just your friend.

And Maze is... well, more.

So, it's way worse.

And as my friend, your advice is?

Apologize your ass off.

Or next time, she might blow that up.

(sighs)

Maze: Maybe you don't understand.

Mommy Dearest tried to kill Chloe.

Oh, I understand. She told me.

She did?

Yes. We're past that.

What I don't understand, though, is how the detective can think I'm the one who leaked sensitive information to my mum.

How could she?

Yeah, Chloe's the bad guy.

Mm.

If only I knew who really gave Mom that information.

Right. If only.

Oh! Good. You came.

Yes, he did.

Thanks for coming, Dan.

Anything up lately?

I don't know. You tell me.

Lucifer called me here.

Yes. Well, I was thinking, as my testimony didn't go quite as planned, that it might help fix things to prove that Perry was behind Boris' killing.

Already working on it, man.

Fantastic!

Well then, please tell me you have some scintillating cop-speak on how to accomplish that tiny task.

Well, uh, the guy who chopped Boris's head off had this scar.

It's actually a brand.

Signature of the Alhambra Triads, they're a Chinese crime syndicate.

Lots of them were in the prison that Perry ran.

Triads hate the Russians, so makes sense to pit them against each other.

Yeah. You should definitely probe this angle.

Mm. (sniffles)

Rumors are they use a Chinese cultural center as a front.

Right. Well, let's start there then, shall we?

Dan: These guys are notoriously violent, so let's try to get in and out as quickly as possible, all right?

Oh, speaking of "in and out," this case really seems to be touching you, Dan.

You know, in a very personal way.

All right. Shh. Yeah. It's personal, obviously.

Just try to keep it down, all right?

Well, it's almost like you want to take Charlotte Richards down yourself.

Like, way down, and give her a hard time.

What are you trying to say, Maze?

Yes, what are you driving at, Maze?

"Driving at."

Good one.

N-No. I'm just... really impressed with how much Dan wants to penetrate this thing from every position.

You know?

Oh, yeah.

Know what?

I bet that's what she said, didn't she?

Oh, yeah!

Oh, Dan!

Big boy.

(growling): All right, all right!

Fine.

Yes. It's my fault.

I leaked the information to Charlotte.

Among other things.

I'm why she knew Chloe was first at the scene.

She must have looked at my text messages after we...

You what?

Made... love.

You slept with my... M-arlotte?

You b*st*rd!

Whoa!

Oh, now look what you've done.

We don't break bread with strangers.

You'll find him at this address.

Xie Xie.

No problem.

See? Easy peasy, Chinese-y.

Chloe: Dan's got a lead on Boris' killer, and it may implicate Perry.

So, if he is responsible, it might not matter what happens in this trial.

Well, that's great, 'cause we are getting our asses kicked.

Well. I have to testify next.

I just hope I don't make things worse.

Oh, you'll do great, honey. You're a pro.

Right, Mom. A real pro.

Like when I followed the prison van.

Mom, what if I'm the reason Dad's killer goes free?

Don't you dare.

No father in the world was more proud of his daughter than your dad.

And nothing you could do in that courtroom or anywhere will ever change that.

(footsteps)

I just miss him.

I want him to get the justice he deserves.

Justice is what we all want, dear.

For your father, and for my client.

You're a mother.

Aren't you?

Yes.

Then shame on you.

We need to talk.

Man, he better be here.

If we can convince him to give up Perry, I won't feel so bad about having slept with Charl...

La la la la! No more talk of that disgusting offense, please.

I thought you said you hadn't slept with her.

I haven't, wouldn't ever.

I'm just upset for the detective.

What, you think I'm not?

I would do anything to right this.

(sighs): I know you would.

LAPD! Put your hands where I can see 'em!

Whoa!

Well, looks like we found Boris, at the head of the table, ironically.

And that's Da Young. I'd say we were right.

Perry hired him to go behind the Triad's back to kill Boris, knowing that they'd punish him for it.

Clever Perry, killed two birds with one stone.

Three, if you count the chicken.

Chloe: You've got a lot of nerve.

Yes, I've been told.

And legs for days.

Now, listen, you're losing bad.

Without Boris, the prosecution's evidence is mostly circumstantial.

And, unfortunately for you, Lucifer's testimony basically handed me a non-guilty verdict.

This trial is over.

Maybe.

But the investigation into that monster that you call a client is ongoing.

So one way or another, he wi...

(cell phone rings)

Hmm.

Bad news?

I may have a solution.

My client isn't fully aware we're winning.

However, he is more than aware that he's facing the death penalty.

And we both know he's a coward.

I could use the possibility of a lethal injection to get him to plead guilty.

You're supposed to be on his side.

Why are you doing this?

Well, there is one condition.

You'd have to betray Lucifer.

So... you want Perry to go to jail, call Lucifer a liar.

"A liar"?

If there's one thing he cares about more than anything, it's his honor.

See you in court.

(clears her throat)

Mom: Detective Decker,

Lucifer Morningstar is your partner, correct?

Yes.

He's a civilian consultant for the LAPD.

We work cases together.

And how is he qualified for this role?

He is very, uh, intuitive.

He, um, understands people's desires.

Mom: And in addition to that, I assume he studied law enforcement?

Not to my knowledge, no.

Mom: Oh, okay.

But he has a professional background, which is somehow relevant to law enforcement?

He owns a nightclub.

Mom: Okay, but then, I'm sure his previous job was more relevant to his role as a civilian consultant for the LAPD?

Right?

Mm.

Well, if you believe his claims that he used to run Hell...

(chokes, clears throat)

...then yes, he's accustomed to punishing bad guys.

(muffled murmurs)

It's true.

I'm confused, Detective.

Are you suggesting your partner is delusional, or just lying?

Lucifer Morningstar is many things, but he is not a liar.

Everything that Mr. Morningstar said on this stand is absolutely true.

I was the first person on that crime scene.

And, yes, I shouldn't have been anywhere near it.

But I... let my emotions get the best of me.

(clears her throat)

Lucifer is the...

...best partner I have ever had.

And I can only hope that he can count on me as much as I count on him.

Stedman: Your Honor, we request the jury be instructed to disregard Detective Decker's entire testimony.

We'll take a ten-minute recess.

(overlapping reporter chatter)

Reporter: Harry, are you surprised by that "not guilty" verdict?

No. I'm never surprised to see justice served.

I believe in our legal system.

And now I can finally return to my family a free man, so, if you'll excuse me.

(cameras clicking)

(reporters calling for Chloe)

(seagulls squawking)

I'm sorry to bother you, um, I was, um...

I'm looking for Maze.

Do you know what apartment she lives in?

Oh, yes, but she's not home.

Why, did you get in a fight?

(laughs)

I'm sorry, it's none of my business.

It's just, my husband... always gave me flowers after an argument.

Are you all right?

(sighs)

I used to believe everything happens for a reason.

But now, I'm not so sure.

(chuckles)

Me, neither.

But I do know that no matter how bad things get, the true test is how we choose to respond to the pain we suffer.

Or inflict.

That's well said.

Maze is a lucky girl.

Hope she forgives you.

Ha! Huh.

I'm sorry, you... you look really familiar.

I'm Chloe's mom?

Have we met?

No, I don't believe we have.

I never forget a face.

If you'll excuse me, I have to go.

Oh.

Perry Smith.

I know you had Boris killed.

I also know you're responsible for the murder of Jill Fields and John Decker.

Aw, such a shame there's no evidence, right?

The system kind of needs proof.

Yeah.

You clean your mess, we got nada.

But you know who's okay with nada?

Or shall I say nichego?

Yeah, that's right.

You see, the Russians, they don't like it when one of their own is taken out without permission.

But who knows?

Maybe they won't hear about it.

Whoa.

Aah! (muffled shouting)

My pleasure, Meesha.

You were right.

You are nothing like Father.

Oh? What changed your mind?

If I tell you this, you have to come completely clean with me, Mother.

No more secrets, Mom. No more lies.

Okay.

What happened?

35 years ago, Father, He asked me to come down here to bless a couple who was unable to have a child.

He had never asked me to do anything of this sort, and He never did again.

Today...

I met the mother again.

And I found out what the result of that miracle was.

Or, rather, who.

(elevator bell dings)

Oh, hey.

Detective.

Sorry, I thought...

What are you doing here?

Are you on your way out?

I am, yes.

Oh...

To see you, actually.

Oh.

I believe I owe you dinner.

Mom: Now we know why Chloe's so special.

Don't we?

Your Father put her here.

In Lucifer's path.

You know what this means?

It means... that I was a pawn.
