there was a world,

that changed everything.
Why the hell did you do that?
Why'd you go after him?
Damn it, Bonnie.
You should've let him get away.

DIRECTOR: Where's that stunt guy?
Get him over here.
- Can I get a coffee?
- Damn it.
We didn't get it, did we?
Yeah, I just choked on the stupid blood capsule.
- Hey, nice work.
Did all the squibs go off?
Yeah, it was sick.
You killed it.
This sequence is gonna be amazing.
You know, you're gonna win one of those stunt awards for this.
Well, especially after you get the car chase.
Not sure about that.
What, are you worried about me?
All I got to do is get up to the top, do that burnout, and then Debi's gonna take over.
N-No, it's-it's not you.
I'm just kind of... not going to be here for it.
I can't really talk about it here, but trust me, it's a good thing.
Actually, me and some friends are going out to celebrate tonight.
Why don't you come?
I'll fill you in on everything.
you may be off the hook, but I got to drive this $ million James Dean Porsche tomorrow.

Who found the body?
Well, if it isn't Detective Dildo of the LAPD.

Just like this appears to be a pretty cut-and-dried bar fight.
Ah, yes, of course, going for the easy answer.
But I know in my gut that's not the case here.
And I need to prove it.
And why's that?
Because just this morning, my Vegas expansion deal was frozen - due to this unfortunate murder.
- I get it.
You got to pin it on somebody else so that your brand stays clean.
I don't pin things on anyone.

But, then, fathers can have a dramatic impact
on their children's lives, can't they?
Take Chloe Decker.
Her dad died years ago of a gunshot wound.
That loss changed her,
inspired her to follow in his footsteps and become a cop.
So what was that one small thing I changed

Okay, Chlo, if this is about some drug charge for your co-star, I'm afraid there's nothing I can do.
No, no, nothing like that.
Actually, a-a friend of mine was killed last night.
Oh, you knew him.
Oh, Monkey, I'm so sorry.
- I-I had no idea.
- It's okay.
Dad, do you have any clue what happened?
Well, it's early, but it looks like a bar fight.
No, he wasn't looking for a fight.
He was out celebrating.
Well, how do you know?
- Well, I was with him.
- You were?
Yeah, a bunch of us.
He just got his dream job, driving for NASCAR, and I just don't think he would do anything to screw that up.
Okay, but, look, i-it's very hard to know everything about somebody.
And the detective on the case is pretty solid on his theory.
Okay, so maybe I could talk to the detective.
Look, I'll pass on what you told me, but that's as close as you're gonna get to an active murder investigation.

She was faking her injury.
And she was very generous with information after I was very generous with the ol...
Okay, I don't want to know.
Well, she said that she needed money and that Stryder refused to lie on her behalf.
But then he said he was coming into a windfall and could help her out.
Apparently he and a partner were planning on stealing something very valuable from set.
So maybe Stryder was backing out of this heist to have a shot at NASCAR.
Well, his partner wouldn't take kindly to being left high and dry, now, would he?
So, does that mean you're still in, Detective?
How do we figure out who Stryder was working with on set?
Perhaps the murder weapon will help narrow it down.
Any joy tracing the mark on that murder weapon?
Sort of, yeah, but not really.
This idiot upgraded this poor girl's engine.

What did you find on the murder weapon, or didn't find?
Well, I'm so glad you asked.
Follow me, please.

But as far as I can tell, it doesn't really mean anything.

Wait, more importantly, our stunt coordinator, Rogers, he always bragged about working on that.

Maybe Rogers killed Stryder to tie up loose ends.

Unless we wait and catch him in the act.
Okay, so what are the most valuable items on set?
Uh, well, camera equipment is worth a ton, uh, wardrobe has a huge resale value.
What about a six-million-dollar car?
What makes you say that?
Seeing it drive off.

What the hell are you doing?
I'm trained for this.

We know you killed Stryder, Ben.
And all because he wouldn't steal one little car.
I mean, it is lovely, but...
I'm not stealing the car, I'm getting it ready for your stunt tomorrow, Decker.
You know, to keep you safe?
So you're welcome.

There's nowhere to hide.
[LAUGHING]: Oh, ho, ho.
I didn't want this, I didn't want any of this.
Well, then, perhaps, you shouldn't have killed an innocent man.
Stryder's the one who backed out of the deal.
I begged him not to.
He forced my hand.
Just like you, right now.
Now, someone is buying me a new shirt.
What the hell?
Now you're catching on.
Nice takedown, partner.

LUCIFER: ...never rendered anyone unconscious before.
I mean, in real life.
JOHN: Thank God you're all right.
Confronting a murderer?
What were you thinking,
- being so...
- LUCIFER: Foolish?
[LAUGHING]: I've heard this tirade before.
Well, let me educate you, sir.
You underestimate your daughter.
I was gonna say "brave." Right.
I know I've made mistakes, Chlo.
Lots of them.
But honey, I've never underestimated you.
Then how come any time I've ever shown any interest in your job, you-you either change the subject, or you push me away?
Because you're way smarter than me, you're more headstrong than your mother and it scared me.
I mean, what if you wanted to become a cop?
What if I did?
I've been shot at, beat up, chased by a naked guy with a harpoon, once.
none of those things scare me as much as thinking of you in those situations.
It was never about whether you could handle it.
It was whether I could.
And I'm sorry.
But a parent just wants what's best for their child.
I love you so much.
I love you, too, Monkey.
So, I, uh, got a crime scene to clean up now, thanks to you.
Perhaps our dads aren't so similar after all.
Ah, well, my dad surprised me.
Maybe yours will, too.
I'm not holding my breath.
GOD: Choice is a funny thing.
Give someone different options, different circumstances,
will they themselves end up different?
Sure, they might end up with a different job,
find inspiration from different people.
But will they still be the same person at their core?

Some might continue down a darker path,
never knowing there was a different way.
The potential buried deep down, but still there.
♪ Forever and ever... ♪
Some make immoral choices instead of moral ones.
But they'll still have the same conscience.
The question is,
will they ever make the choice to listen to it?
And sometimes, it isn't the right moment in someone's life
to make a certain choice.
And no matter how badly you want
to nudge them in the right direction...

And some people find love in the strangest of situations,
and are, somehow, happier for it.

♪ Just for one day... ♪
Well, that was quite fun, wasn't it?
Not bad for a half-in-the-bag club owner and an actress.
I don't know if "fun" is the word I would use.
Yeah, but it certainly was fulfilling.
You know, it makes me think maybe I'm tired of playing a cop in the movies, you know?
Maybe I'd like to play detective for real.
Hang up the glitz and the glamour for a badge and a naked man with a harpoon?
Maybe I'll tag along.
It's never gonna happen.
Care to wager?
GOD: And some, no matter how you shake things up,
end up making the same choices, are drawn to the same people,
the same passions.
So all seems to have ended well.
Does that mean I never should've
manipulated things to begin with?
I have a better question.
Wouldn't you do the same in my shoes?
After all, a parent just wants what's best for their child.
