The Monterey Five?

You were there the night the guy fell.

Where did you hear that?

It was just the way he said it.

RENATA KLEIN: How exactly was that?

Like we all have scarlet letters on our backs.

(SCHOOL BELL RINGS)

Are you all right?

BONNIE CARLSON: I killed someone.

Remember?

DR. AMANDA REISMAN: Do you see yourself as a monster?

I guess I still feel... responsible.

You don't remember?

I was... I was driving and...

Ma'am, have you had anything to drink?

No, I haven't.

(CELESTE SIGHS)

I couldn't sleep last night, so I took a pill at : a.m.

And you don't even remember getting in the car?

CELESTE WRIGHT: No.

But you passed the Breathalyzer?

I did.

(SIGHS) Babe, you gotta be careful with Ambien.

Hey!

Hey, Bonnie! What are you doing?

BONNIE CARLSON: Walking.

In the middle of nowhere?

This isn't the middle of nowhere.

MADELINE MACKENZIE: Well, you're on the side of the highway.

I was hiking.

- Okay...
- BONNIE: What are you doing?

Do you need a ride?

Why would I want a ride if I'm on a hike... Madeline?

- Are you on drugs?
- Am I on drugs? What are you...

- Are you on drugs?
- MADELINE: I'm sorry...

- I'm just walking. Can I walk?
- That just came out... I'm sorry.

My God. Do you see what I'm saying?

I have to get Abigail out of her house.

That woman's not well.

- GORDON KLEIN: Thank you. Here.
- No, it was eight women.

GORDON: Uh-oh. What?

You are a f*cking incredible publicist.

- Thank you. Goodbye!
- GORDON: What?

Guess who's going to be on the cover next month of the number one women's magazine

- in the US of f*cking A?
- I have no idea.

- Oh, I think you know.
- (GORDON LAUGHS)

I think you know because you're f*cking married to her.

- Oh, baby. My cover girl!
- (RENATA LAUGHS)

- MICHAEL NELSON: Gordon Klein.
- I've always known you were...

Gordon Klein, Special Agent Michael Nelson with the FBI.

- Whoa. Stand back, dude.
- Please put your hands on the hood of the car.

- RENATA: I'm sorry, what...
- What's going on?

- Hands on the hood now, sir.

Please step away from the car.

That's my husband, Gordon Klein.

NELSON: Count , that's securities fraud, Title ...

- Renata, call Walter, all right?
- What the f*ck is going on here?

What are you doing?
You can't just assault somebody in the middle of a f*cking public place.

NELSON: You have the right to have an attorney present...

- GORDON: Ow! Goddammit!
- ...during any questioning.

Call Walter now!

- RENATA: You can't.
- AGENT: Please step back.

Ma'am, we need you to relax.
You need to relax.

They're taking my f*cking husband in handcuffs.

AGENT: We understand.
We will get you the information.

You had me worried sick.

You know what, it's my fault.

I had a bit of an emergency this morning, and Celeste came to my rescue.

Where's your car?

It broke down.

Are the boys okay?

Uh, yes, they're getting ready for school.

- You went out like that?
- CELESTE: Well, I had to.

MADELINE: It was an emergency.

Wh... What kind of an emergency?

The kind short people have?

You don't like me, do you, Madeline?

I'm sure you mean well.

You know, when I was very young...
(CHUCKLES)

my family just moved, and we... I was going to a brand-new school, so I was especially scared, and my father gave me the best advice.

He said, "Mary Louise, you just seek out the bully...

- and make friends with her.
- (LAUGHS MOCKINGLY)

Am I the bully in this scenario?

(SIGHS) On your awesome days,

I suspect you are a godsend.

But on your bad days... decidedly less so.

MADELINE: f*cking weirdo.

What?

(SCOFFS) What?

(CHUCKLES)

COREY BROCKFIELD: So, did you think about our practice date?

- Our practice date?
- COREY: It's like a trial run.

You know, we could... we could shower, we'd put on clothes, we go to a restaurant, we eat, we talk, and if it's not a total disaster, then we could do it for real.

Yeah... um...

I don't want to offend you, but you are...

I do think you're a very genuine person, but you're a very...

(WHISPERING) You're very strange.

(CHUCKLES)

You know, one of the last socially acceptable bigotries

- is the one against weirdos.

COREY: For what it's worth, I'm emotionally intuitive.

I get a feeling about people sometimes.

JANE CHAPMAN: Hmm, you have one about me?

To be honest, no.

- But...

You're... You're really tolerant and you're friendly, and you're really pretty.
You look good in waders.

How could I least not make room

Are you and Dad going to get divorced?

What?

Honey... No, of course not.

What makes you say this?

Dad never makes you laugh.
And you seem mad at him.

Well, I am not mad at him. Okay?

Who are you mad at?

Nobody.

I made a big bet to short some stock with, um...

So? I thought that was a bust?

GORDON: It was. Oh my...

Um, which I knew, but, uh... no one else did.

- Uh...
- RENATA: (SIGHS) f*ck.

So, then the test results completely tanked, so I started shorting big time.

Do you have to do time for that?

- (SIGHS) Okay.
- RENATA: Oh my God. Oh my God.

Listen...
(GROANS) That's not the worst of it.

RENATA: What?

I kind of bet the ranch.

There's gonna be civil lawsuits to follow that.

I f*cking tried, and you know it.
I've tried.

You know that.

You know what, it f*cked me up some when my marriage to Madeline ended.

Divorce creates trauma.

Think something is gonna go on forever and it doesn't.

Then you're on the other side of it, and you just... you don't really trust the ground underneath your feet.

I've never lost sight of the fact that marriage is fragile.
That it can all go away.

And you...

I don't know where you've gone, but you're not here.

He's in prison, and he might stay in f*cking prison, and he's lost all our money.

I just...

I just think it's best if you talk to me, you know, rather than at school.

But you don't like to talk about it.

That's not true.

JOSH WRIGHT: You like to pretend everything's okay.

CELESTE: (SIGHS) Well, I shouldn't do that.

I don't like her.

Well, you have to try.

Well, I have tried, but she's not a likeable person.

You are out here surrounded by people who don't even get you.

They don't look like you.

I haven't seen one other black person since I've been out here.

I mean, can you pinpoint a specific date?

Instance. Anything?

Because I can.

It was after that event.

You all went to that student gala.

Thank you, Mary Louise.

Did you tell Max and Josh?

Only that they have a brother in the second grade.

Since August?

Ziggy, you've known since August and you haven't said anything to me?

I didn't know who he was.

I didn't know until Trivia Night.

- And...
- But why didn't you tell me?

Because I didn't know how.

I just thought that I would wait.

- Till when?
- Till you got older, I guess.

Did Chloe tell you anything else?

She said something about Mr. Wright giving you salt.

That's how it happened. He salted you.

Yeah, but you didn't.

Well, I was trying to protect Jane and Celeste's privacy.

- But I'm your husband. Okay?
- Okay, but can you understand and maybe contemplate for a minute the fundamental violation of a woman's privacy when you're talking about rape?

ED: How about the fundamental violation of our family, of our marriage. I mean, I'm your husband. I am supposed to help you with this stuff.

I mean, of course she's gonna hear you whispering on the f*cking phone, Madeline.

Okay? No more eavesdropping, young lady.

Is Daddy mad at me?

Daddy's mad, but that's the thing about families.

Is that you can be mad and you can fight, but you get over it, and you always come back together.

That's wh... That's what families do.

- So we're gonna be okay.
- Okay.

Can I have my phone back?

(SIGHS)

MARY LOUISE: So this thing was supposed to have happened when?

Like nine years ago?

When you two were trying so hard to have a baby? Please.

When did you find out about this alleged affair?

It wasn't an affair.
It was a rape. Rape.

- When did you find out?
- The night he died.

Then how can you... This woman, she could have had multiple partners, you know.

She could have been drugged.
She... You don't know her.

She could have been...
What if she got it wrong?

Aren't you desperate...

- She didn't.
- ...for her to be wrong?

Aren't you desperate to know that he wasn't unfaithful?

To believe that he... he wasn't capable of doing the things that she said.

He wasn't.
I'll... I'll never believe that.

Your son wasn't an innocent man.
He beat me up.

- I don't believe you.
- Many times.

Why wouldn't you go to the police?

- I probably should have.
- But... you didn't.

- No, because it wasn't simple.
- I don't believe you.

I don't understand why you're so willing to believe her.

I don't know why you...you are willing to assassinate his character, his memory,

- who he was. I...
- It's so hard.

I'm telling you what it was.

I'm not saying I was blameless.

I'm just telling you we were violent with each other, and sometimes... (VOICE CRACKS) sometimes, it would lead to s*x.

I don't... I...

- CELESTE: We loved each other.
- Hmm.

- We... We were...
- But he beat you up.

CELESTE: We had a sickness.

And you didn't go to the police?

I just... (SCOFFS)

I'll go to the police.

What?

To get some answers.
You left some things out, didn't you?

The fact that he fathered another child.

You left that out.

That you planned to move, that you rented an apartment.

You left that out.

That you were planning to leave him the very night he died.

You left that out.

And that you...you... learned of his infidelity just ten seconds before he... went falling down a flight of stairs to his death.

Oh, you left that out, too.

(WAVES CRASH)

(SEAGULLS CAW)

How's Ziggy?

He's uh... (CHUCKLES) I don't know.

And you?

Um, I gotta tell you something. I...
(SIGHS)

I told Ziggy about the circumstances.

- The violence of it?
- Mm-hmm.

- CELESTE: What?
- Just a little bit, but he knows that he cannot share it with Max and Josh.
That it's just for him.

- But we had an agreement.
- I know. I know.

We were gonna wait.

I know, but I can't lie to him anymore.

- I can't...
- No, I...

- His entire life...
- Jane.

...has just been built on a foundation of lies.

I can't just... I can't continue.

And I know that you have to protect your boys, but I have to protect mine.

I have to be honest with him.

Ugh, God, this is so f*cked up.

Have you told your boys about Ziggy?

N... Not yet, no. I just...

(SIGHS) I will, I mean...

MADELINE: Bonnie.

- Hey.
- Hey.

- Could you talk for a second?
- Sure.

Um, this is in no way...meant to blame you or Nathan at all, for that matter, but with that said, I...

I just feel strongly that Abigail come stay with me.

Yeah, she needs more than I can give her.

What's going on? Are you okay?

No, I'm not okay.
I told you I wasn't okay.

I'm having a hard time with the whole thing.

Sometimes, I wake up at night in a sweat with this... feeling.

It's gonna get us.
It's gonna get us all.

What... Who are you talking about?

The lie.

I gotta go.

ABIGAIL MACKENZIE: I'm not resisting the idea of coming back here.

Well, that's a relief.

As long as the main goal isn't trying to convince me to go to college.

The endgame is to move you into a stable environment where your executive decision-making skills are nurtured.

That's a good one.

MADELINE: Can I just say one thing though?

I think you're being rash, honey.

Life is a series of building blocks that you stand on and you grow on, and I feel like you are kicking the most fundamental building block, which is education, right out from under you.

You used to claim that family was your most fundamental building block.

MADELINE: Well, of course. It's very important.

What, you just, like, kicked that one to the side?

What do you mean?

You were f*cking the theater director last year, so...

That's so inappropriate, Abigail and this is not about me.

Well, you're being really hypocritical,

- and I'm just using the ref...
- This is about you and your future.

Ed...

MADELINE: Hey.

What's going on?

We were just talking about college.

Is that it?

What's this about f*cking a theater director?

MADELINE: No, I...

- You misheard that.
- ED: Huh.

- Where are you going?
- ED: Uh, to get my ears checked.

Goddammit!

(WHISPERING) You said he wasn't home!

- But we already know him.
- No, but now you'll... be meeting him as... I mean, as brothers. That's...

We're already friends.
What difference does it make?

I don't know.

This is what I do know: He's part of your family now.

And, I mean, family is always everything, but...sometimes it is.

- Is Daddy a bad person?
- No. No, no, no.

Your daddy was a wonderful person.

A beautiful person.

He could be weak... like we all can.
He could make mistakes, but your... your daddy was a beautiful... wonderful man.

(LOCK CLICKS)

(QUIETLY) Okay, um...

Thank you for coming back.

I, um... (SNIFFLES)

At best as I... fathom, and I cannot fathom what I've done, I...

This was about me, and I...

I'm so sorry. I...
This was not about you.

- Maybe about us as a couple.
- Mm-hmm.

And I think we should get therapy.

Okay...

MADELINE: But I need you to know that this has nothing to do with you.

- This happened so long ago...
- (CLEARS THROAT)

...and it has nothing to do with how much I love you because I love you so much, and... and I just need to know what you're thinking.

That you would... keep the secret that you kept about Perry and Ziggy. (SNIFFLES)

That you would be unfaithful. Um...

That you would tell Abigail about it.

I know. That is... That happened in a moment of weakness.

ED: When?

Last year.

So she's known a year?

My daughter, and yes, I do think of her as a daughter, has known this for a year?

Yes, I'm sorry, I f*cked up. I, um...

But I'm gonna do anything I can to fix it.

- ED: Does Chloe know?
- No!

No, of course not.

- How can you be so sure?
- No, Ed, I promise you, she doesn't know. I'm so sorry, she...

Look, this just isn't about you.
It's about me. This is about us.

When you say "us," what...

I mean, what... what d... what does that even mean?

'Cause it can't mean honesty.

Right?
It can't mean truth or... or trust.

I mean, it can't mean you and me confiding in each other, so what... what's "us"?

You asked me what I'm thinking.
I'll tell you.

I think we're done.

(FOOTSTEPS RETREAT)

(SOBS)

I do appreciate you coming, Mama. I do.

Meaning... enough.

BONNIE: I do not want any of that in my family's life.

We're not having that conversation again.

I have been having visions lately, Bonnie...

- I know you've had some too.
- Mom.

- They are strong, baby.
- Don't. Don't.

- Somebody's drowning.
- Stop.

I see lots of water, and somebody's drowning.

I see you drowning right now in a way.

(WIND CHIMES CHIMING)

Who's gonna protect you, baby?

BONNIE: I do not need you to protect me.

Not from evil spirits or your visions...

From what, then?

Tell me.

What have you done this time? Hmm?

I do want you to go.

- I love you, too, honey.

(DOOR CLOSES)

BONNIE: Okay, you invited her, you get rid of her.

NATHAN: Get rid of her?

Like... Like, maybe with rat poison?

Or a weekend with Maddie?

BONNIE: Seriously, though, can you tell her to go?

Can you tell me what's going on?

(WHISPERING) Be patient, baby.

Patient.
