01x10 - Pure Heroine

Post by bunniefuu »

Sometimes bad situations happen to good people.

Many times, those situations can result in legal ramifications and even jail time. If this has happened to you...

We have closed circuit footage of you entering the garage the night your brother was m*rder.

Yeah, when he didn't show at the bar, I went to find him.

Then how do you explain your blood there?

We got in a fight a couple weeks earlier.

About what?

Carter wasn't taking the charges seriously.

All right, okay, look, I was mad at Carter, but I swear to you, I didn't k*ll him.

♪ I don't like to follow the rules ♪
♪ and that's just who I am ♪
♪ I hope you understand ♪

How are you doing?


Sorry, that's a stupid question, 'cause you're doing horrible.


Great start, Jules.

I'm just glad to see you.

Me too.

I can't believe he's d*ad, Jules.

He's gone, and I found out as I was being taken away in handcuffs for his m*rder.

It feels like a nightmare I can't wake up from.

I'm so sorry, Tyler.

What have the cops asked you about?

Not much.

They subpoenaed my phone this morning.

What? They want your phone?

Because of the texts?


My lawyer blocked it, thank god.

There's some bad stuff from me to some friends about Carter.

It doesn't look good.

Wait, give them your phone.


Just tell your lawyer to give them your phone, okay?

Trust me. Do you trust me?

Yeah, but that's crazy.

I told you...

Tyler, if he was really d*ad, then someone else was sending those texts.

And that person should be in here, not you.

Time's up.

Just give the police your phone, okay?

Come on, Jules, you got to go.

Promise me.

Okay, I'll talk to my lawyer.

I know how to get the charges dropped.

I'm listening.

Okay, so if you doctored that text to make it seem like Carter was in Canada, technically we could just doctor another one so the IP places the phone back here in Westport.

So we send one more text to Tyler from Carter from someone here in Westport.

Oh, my god, I have nothing more to teach you.

I'm so proud! Ah! Okay.

What are you doing?

I am searching the police database.

I mean, if we're gonna frame someone for m*rder, it's got to be a person who's pure garbage.

Try Megan's list. That's where people...

I know what that is.

You are [Bleep] up, Jules Thomas, and I love it.

I'm blushing.

So, are they gonna call?

I don't know.

I've never contacted a vigilante before.

You know, I'm gonna tweet again, or maybe an Instagram.

Wait, do they have Instagram?

They've gotta have Instagram, right?

Okay, I rarely say this to anyone that isn't me, but you've got to calm down.

We need justice, Mac.

It's important. How am I...

I mean, you know, Jules, how is Jules supposed to move on if she doesn't get that?

Right. This is about Jules.

Of course it's about Jules.

Look, we'll just keep checking.

Maybe they'll email me, or DM me, or...

[phone chimes]

Oh, false alarm. It's just my birth control reminder.

What are you doing?

Nate down, baby.

Okay, so I was thinking, like, we should do a public shaming a la cersei.

I already bought the bell on Amazon.

No. No Nate.

All our focus needs to be on Tyler.

Check the system again.

See, nothing.

Searching these Megan's list dude is gonna take a while.

I'm sorry. We have to...

Get Tyler out of jail.


Yeah, I'm gathering that's important to you, and I'm working on it.

Look, the MVP ceremony is next week.

Do you really want to see that kid get up there and accept an award in front of the entire school?

You can't avoid the elephant r*pist in the room.

Yeah, no, that...

That sounds like Nate Rapes Elephants.

But he is a r*pist who's also the elephant in the room.

He's not an elephant r*pist.

And in the meantime, you... you deserve this takedown.

Oh, have you checked Kennedy's tweets?

I don't check Twitter.

You were her goddess on goddess Tuesday two weeks ago.

I really wanna be chosen, but, you know, I don't want to ask.

I wanna earn it.

What's Sweet Vicious?

Us, I guess.

I mean, Brady started that.

It's really crazy.

A lot of people love it. Some hate it.

A lot of people hate us, but some love us.

This Nate takedown needs to be special.

We can't just punch him in the dick and deliver a monologue like we usually do.

We need to take away everything that's important to him, just like he did to you.

You storming the gates really showed initiative.

Yeah, I love initiating.

You know, about the internship, I...

How is your work coming on the Darlington vigilante case?

Now with this whole Nate Griffin fiasco, I mean, it's become even more public.

With all due respect, don't you think time would be better spent investigating why there's a need for a vigilante in the first place?

It's a fool's errand.

We're city funded, but the livelihood of this city lives and dies based on the commerce of that university.

We're still waiting on ♪freetyler.

So, if you want to deliver it.

Oh, but text me just before you deliver it.

That way I can have the blast ready when it lands.

We're awesome at this.

We really are.

[Knock at door]

Hey, Kennedy.

You got something in the mail.

Holy crap.


Well, is it them? Did they answer?

Oh my god, this is so badass.

[Chuckles] Look, look.

Hey, girls, get in here.

What's up?

Oh, my god, is this it?

It's them.

I found a real winner.

He's got arrests and convictions that go back 20 years, yet he's never served jail time.

He's from a wealthy family, and they're really good at evading the system.

Oh, and he has a house out near the cemetery, so those early pings they found out there totally make sense.

What did he do, exactly?

All kids.

Boys and girls.

All under the age of 14.

Couple of years ago, they found the remains of a young girl who went missing 15 years prior in his backyard.

How is this guy not in jail?

His lawyers got him off on a technicality.

Okay, well, looks like we got our guy.

So what, now we just... Send the text?

You don't have to feel bad about this, okay?

This guy is just a really bad guy.

No, it's not him.

He's... he's garbage.

It's just, I mean, is a text enough?

No, but Carter's phone, the text, and the m*rder w*apon, and yeah, we in bidness.

Now all we need is for one of us to go into his house and get his router number.


No. Why does it automatically have to be me?

You love recon.

Okay, you know what? Fine.

Rock, paper, scissors to see who goes to the pedophile's house.

Ready? Rock, paper, scissors, sh**t.

Ha-ha-ha, suck it, Thomas.


Okay. He usually comes this way after his math class.


There he is.


Nate! Hey, Nate. Wait up.

Hey. What's up, girls?

We read your article.

Are you okay?

Yeah, I'm okay.

Are you sure?

The vigilante is totally coming for you.

I'm not worried about that.

It's just a bunch of smoke and mirrors.

I guess. Seems pretty scary to me, though.

Like you have a target on your back.

I'll be fine.

I gotta get to class, all right? See you guys around.

Okay, bye.

Don't get attacked.

[Upbeat pop music]

Mission intiminate accomplished.

[Bell dings]

If I see one more flyer for this douche bag, I'm gonna freak out.

Ophelia, we need to talk.

I met with district attorney Thurston.

I've been digging into the DA's response to as*ault on campus.

It's troubling, to say the least.

The cases go that high?

They have.

A girl two years ago was denied justice by the school.

So she took the case to the police, then subsequently Thurston.

But it just went away.

They questioned the guy.

Thurston ruled in his favor.

It's like there was no due process at all.

It's classic. This is what I was trying to tell you.

The system is a joke.

The school doesn't want girls reporting, because if they report it, then they have to record it.

And then the recordings go public.

And before you know it, Darlington is r*pe city, USA.

What parents wants to send their child to the school with the highest percentage of sexual as*ault in the country?

Is it?

I don't know.

Seems like it is.

[Phone vibrating]

Oh, I got to go meet Fiona.

Let's continue this discussion later.

I've got some more questions.

Sure, yeah. Anything.

[Bell dings]

No. Shoo.

I do not sell to anyone that might share it with Nate Griffin.

Then you've got nothing to worry about with me.

What, are you trying to trick me?

Does it look like I'm trying to trick you?

I'm not talking to that dick sneeze right now.

I just... Can you just give me my weed so I can go home and watch "Mystery Science Theater 3000"?

Yeah, sure.

Hey, uh, if you see Jules, can you just tell her I'm so sorry?

I just, I... yeah.

I'm sorry.

[Bell dings]



So I went to that scumbag's house.

It was terrible. And it smelled weird.

And I hope I have everything you want, because I never want to go back there ever again.

We're doing the community a favor by putting this guy away for real.

And I got his router number, and I took note of his nearest telephone poles.

Perfect. That's all I need.
Now I've just got to input it.

This better work.



Do you feel guilty?

Keeping him locked up for this?

I mean, we told him that his stepbrother was d*ad while we were putting him in cuffs.

Are you at all worried that we jumped to a conclusion?

It's always the person you least expect.

Look, I know you grew up with the kid, but you don't know what's going on in his head.

[Phone chimes]

Get IT. We have something.

Nice. Yeah. [Bleep] that poster, right?


Well, I've got three different types of fries.

I got some sweet potato fries, steak fries, curly fries.

Didn't know what mood you'd be in.

[Phone clacking]

Are you okay?

[Clears throat]

I don't know. I can't really talk about it.

I was actually headed out.

I have a thing.

Oh, yeah. Finally getting that upper tramp stamp removed?

[Chuckles] Come on, man, you know peace is important, and so is not making permanent decisions about body art when you're blackout drunk and mad at your mom.

That's the truth.


I thought we were gonna hang out tonight.

I mean, I got three different types of fries.

I'm sorry, okay?

Something came up.

Can I make it up to you later, though?

She was sexually as*ault a couple of weeks ago, Like four doors down from where I was sleeping.
