01x11 - The Last Dance

Post by bunniefuu »

Previously on Monarch...

- Meet Mackenzie Gates from Open Horizons.
- Hi.

You took a back seat to
your mother for years.

The spotlight doesn't
find everyone.

Skyfair Media Group

have made an offer to acquire

a majority stake in Monarch.

I vote no.

Without my yes vote,
this merger dies.

So I want a tour.

She went for it.

Everything you asked
for and then some.

You ready for your
dreams to come true?

To what Monarch was and
to what Skyfair can be.

Nothing says
"I love you" more

than sleeping with
the brother-in-law.

I might have a solution
that-that suits all of us.

What if we fast-track
this whole thing and ask Luke

- to be our donor?
- Luke? My brother?

I am so sorry
that I pushed you away

and I'm so grateful to
have you in my life.

Nicky, I'm not who
you think I am.

Clive was the
blackmailer, wasn't he?

Sure sounded like it.

What about the body?

Trust me, I
ain't forgetting.

I think you k*lled Clive.

So I'm gonna give you 24
hours to turn yourself in.

This all ends tomorrow.

please remain in your seats.

- What the hell's that?
- Daddy?

Just hold on a minute, folks.

There must be some kind
of misunderstanding.

What the hell are you
doing here, Tripp?

- We had a deal.
- Sorry, friend.

I just can't take the word of a
man with a passport and a jet.

- Cuff him.
- You son of a...

♪ I said this life... ♪

Albie Roman, you
are under arrest

for the m*rder of Clive Grayson.

♪ What's mine coming to me... ♪

Well, go on. Tell him what
you told me last night.


After you k*lled
Clive that night,

I moved his body, and buried
him in the state park.

Why would you do that?

To make sure your father
went down for Clive's m*rder.

I knew you
were up to something.

This doesn't make any sense.

Oh, it will.

Tell him why.

When I was a kid,
three years old,

my father was k*lled
by a drunk driver.

The man arrested for his
death was Albie Roman.

And you came
here to get even,

- you son of a bitch.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Let's hear him out.

Then you can have at him.

I assume Nicky told you

it was Tripp behind the
wheel that night and not me.

Yeah. Yeah, she did.

So, you hid

Clive's body months ago.

You could've called
the cops at any time.

Right. Or planted it
here to get a conviction.

Why didn't you?

Because I fell in love.

And when I did, I knew I
couldn't hurt Nicky like that.

I knew I couldn't hurt
any of y'all like that.

My whole life,

I wanted the man who
took everything from me

to feel the pain that I felt.

I just had the wrong man.

I'm sorry.

I understand

why you did it.

But there are things in
life that can't be forgiven.

And betraying my trust,
breaking my daughter's heart,

top of the list.

So you need to gather
your personals and leave.

If you ever step foot
on the Brambles again,

I promise, I'll
dig a hole for you.

Hey, Jamie.

One more thing.

Hey, Nick. You okay?



I hope you're not here
to back out on our deal.


No, I'm gonna turn myself
in tonight, like we agreed.

But there's something
I need to know first.



After everything
we've been through,

this can't just
be about politics.

You did a damn nice thing
for me 40 years ago.

And you held it over my
head every day since.

Has to end.

All right, Daddy, there must
be something that we can do.

You can't just... let
Tripp win like this.

I wish there was, but
he's got me in a bind

- and he knows it.
- Well, then, leave.

Take the jet and find
a white sandy beach somewhere

in a country
without extradition.

If I run, he'll come
after all of you,

and I won't let that happen.

But there's one thing
you can do for me.

I want us to take the
stage one last time

and do what we do best.

Like a farewell concert?

That's exactly what I mean.

You think you can get
a venue for tonight?

- How big?
- Big as you can find.

And you think that we can
fill it on such short notice?

Albie Roman's final performance?

You post it on social,

we'll have a line
from here to El Paso.


And no more sad looks.

My job is to
protect this family.

And yours

is to stick together,
no matter what happens.

Can you do that for me?


Yes, sir.


Eat up. I'll see y'all later.

Doesn't make any sense.

It's not like Daddy to give up.

He's not giving up.

You heard him.
He's protecting us.

And now, we have
to stick together.

Just like Daddy said.

As a family, no matter what.



Hey, bae, what's going on?

- Oh. Are you okay?
- Hi.

- Where is the doctor?
- Geeg, I'm fine,

but there's something
we need to talk about.

Yeah, your five months
pregnant and going into labor.

I'm not great at math, but
I know this ain't right.

Yeah, so, um...

Gigi, how are you?

I'm worried, to be honest.

Understandable, but no need.

Kayla came in for her
checkup, her water broke,

but she's only a
few centimeters,

so you made it in
plenty of time.

But it's too soon.

I'm sorry?

We only did IVF five months ago.

She can't be having
this baby yet.

You got to make these
contractions stop.

Your wife is seven
months pregnant.

But the baby is
healthy and viable,

and that's all that
matters right now.

Um, can we have
a moment, please?

Of course.

Look, before you say anything...

I'm not talking.

I'm listening, because I
want to hear it from you,

and I want all of it, now.



So, you know how you said you're
gonna miss me when I go on tour?

Wade has pulled out...
Surprise, surprise...

And I was wondering if
you wanted to open for me.

Well, isn't that great?
What do you think?


I know, Nicky.

- What?
- Everything.

Kayla went into
labor and told me.

About, um,

her affair with Luke.

And the pregnancy.

And your little plot

to cover it all up.

Gigi, I'm so sorry.

You're my big sister.

You're supposed to protect me.

- I did, I swear.
- That wasn't for me.

That was protecting the family
name and the sacred Roman image,

just like Mama.

But at least when
Mama shivved you,

she didn't lie.

She didn't smile

and pretend to be
your very best friend.

I'm not lying and
I'm not pretending.

You are my best friend.

You'll always be my best friend.

Geeg, I-I never wanted
you to get hurt.

What Daddy said,

some things you can't forgive.

We're done.

As friends, as
sisters, as family.

Get the hell off
my porch, Nicky.

And don't ever come back.

♪ Baby, you're a song,
you make me want ♪

♪ To roll my windows
down and cruise... ♪

I have to say, when it comes
to Roman palace intrigue,

I thought I had heard it all.

But what your wife and
brother tried to pull off,

that really takes
the gluten-free cake.

Did they actually think
they'd get away with it?

I think they just crossed their
fingers and hoped for the best.

Well, they should've
crossed their legs.

This whole thing
wouldn't have happened.

Sorry, I tend to
hide behind humor

- at times of emotional distress.
- Mm.

I tend to hide behind tequila.

You know what the worst
part of all this is?

Might be hard to
narrow down, but go on.


She pretends to be my
best friend and champion

and all the while she's
choreographing a cover-up

like she's Alvin Ailey.

And now she gets to
ride off into the sunset

on her very own stadium tour.

Now you tell me how that's fair.

It's not, honey bear.

But the merger is a done deal.

Not even Dottie Roman
herself could change that.

Then why change it,

when I can burn it
all to the ground?

Thanks, Earl.

No. No, no, no, no. No.
That's not what I meant.

Why is it everybody always
takes my advice the wrong way?

- Hello.
- Hello.

Usually, when a Roman
walks through my door,

they're here to make
big, dramatic demands.

Actually, I'm here for you.

To keep you from
making a huge mistake.

I know you're investing millions
of dollars into Monarch.

Oh, hundreds of millions.

Well, I think you should know
exactly what you're getting.

- And what is that?
- A world of hurt.

The Romans seem to destroy
everything they touch.

- Go on.
- Well, Nicky, for instance,

daughter of legendary
Dottie Roman,

heir apparent to the
Queen of Country throne,

until the fans find out that
she helped k*ll my mother.

The law calls it assisted
su1c1de, but still,

the press, social media?

It'll be a feeding frenzy.

Why in the world would you go
public with that kind of story?

Oh, pack a lunch
and pitch a tent,

'cause I'm just getting started.

Before I turn myself in
tonight, I wanted to...

talk to the two of you about
what happened that night

that your daddy died.

You mean the night
that you k*lled him?

Dad tried to k*ll Mom, Tate.

Tried to k*ll me, too.

He left me no choice.

Why should I believe you?

'Cause I've never lied to you.

And I ain't about to start now.

I truly wish things would've
gone different that night,

but that doesn't make
me any less sorry,

because it's the two of
you that got hurt the most.

You have no idea how I feel.

Grampa's just trying
to tell us the truth.

And he's going to prison for it.

That's all right,
Ace, she's right.

You know, the world believes

that my job is to
sing and play guitar,

but my real job is to
protect this family.

And the thing I'll be thinking
on the most while I'm away

is how I'm gonna make
this up to you two.

But in the meantime...

take care of each other.

And don't forget,

it's family first.

Now and forever.

Now, I know that Gigi's upset.

But I can assure you that
the Romans do not like

to air their dirty
laundry in public.

That may be, but
I can't go forward

on your assurances alone,
so I'm gonna have to...

hit pause on the tour.

- For how long?
- Six months.

Six months? Well, that's not
"pause," I'd say that's "stop."

Skyfair is a
multinational company

with a variety of businesses,

and if an artist
gets "canceled,"

things can snowball
very quickly.

I'm very sorry, Nicky, but...

it's better this way.

For who? For the shareholders
or... some hedge fund?

'Cause it's certainly
not better for me.

Well, I don't want
to have to remind you

that it was my vote that
made the merger happen

in the first place.

Is that a thr*at?

You can take it how you
want, but no tour, no merger.

You know, nine times out of ten,

I am sitting across
the negotiating table

from some old white man who
underestimates me from the jump.

So if you think that
you're calling my bluff,

I assure you, I'm not bluffing.

The tour's off.

Then so is the merger.

I'll see myself out.

Sorry, I didn't
think anybody would be here.

I can come back.

No, no, I was, I
was just leaving.


Look, I know you
can't forgive me,

nor would I expect you to,
but I just want you to know

that I meant everything I said.

Which part?

The truth or the lies?

I never lied about
how I feel about you.

And I'm sorry about your tour.

Even the greatest artists
go through hard times.

Jamie, stop. Come on.

Your entire reason for
being here was a lie, so...

I deserve that. I do.

And you don't have to believe
me or listen to a word I say,

but the one person you should
never stop believing in

is yourself.

I can pack up another time.

I just can't believe
he's going to prison.

- I know.
- My grandfather's my best friend, Ana.

Or was. I don't
even know anymore.

It was self-defense, Ace.
Your dad went all psycho.

Yeah, but he's still my dad.

And now that my grandpa's
going away, it's just...

it feels like I'm losing
everyone who's close to me.

Well, you're not gonna lose me.

What's going on here?


Ace is upset.
We're friends, Mom.

Well, ever since
you became friends,

my daughter has stopped
listening to me.

Come on, let's go.

- We're leaving.
- No, Ace cares about me.

And not just because I can sing.

So stop trying to control me.

How dare you talk
to me like that?

You better get used to it.

'Cause this little girl that you
dressed up and paraded around

is tired of being
told what to do.

Just don't feel up

I'm sorry.

I'm the one who's sorry,

for what that brother
of yours did to you.

You've gotten through
worse, Georgina.

You'll get through this.

Like that song says,

what doesn't k*ll you
makes you stronger.

That's right.

Only, that's a lie, Daddy.

'Cause what doesn't k*ll you

just makes you feel
really, really bad.

You're not staying for the...

the-the planning meeting
for Daddy's concert?

The only thing I'm planning
is what family to join next.


Skyler just called.

Hi. Hi, Geeg.

You backed out of the deal?

Well, yes, because
she canceled the tour.

- What, so you k*lled the merger?
- For the record,

I'd like to think that
I k*lled the merger.

Geeg, I know you must
hate me right now,

and there's probably nothing I
can say to ever make it right,

but that merger
was worth millions.

Well, I like to think that
my marriage was priceless.

Luke, at least try

and apologize to her properly.

- I'm trying.
- Well, try harder.

Don't pretend like you're
not just as guilty as he is.

I did not sleep with Kayla.

As far as we know.

No, no, don't you dare
make this about me.

For the last time, I was
trying to fix your mess.

How? By making a bigger one?

That plan was ridiculous.

You know what plan was
ridiculous is mine.

The one about "till
death do us part"

and "happily ever after."

That ship has sailed,
thanks to you two.

In eight hours,

I'm turning myself in.

I'm asking one thing:

for the three of you to
find a way to be a family,

because pretty soon,

you're all you're
gonna have left.

I know being inside
ain't gonna be no picnic,

but being out here and
facing the world alone,

pretty sure that
ain't much better.

He's right.

Can we not just do
what Daddy's asking

and please, please
forgive each other

before his farewell concert?

I hate to say no to Daddy...

but this time, there's
no chance in hell.

I don't know
what to say, I...

I did my best.

- I really thought we had it this time.
- You got us close.

Families... are complicated.

And mine is in a
league of their own.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry I-I wasted your time.

I don't
believe in wasted time.

In fact, sometimes
the best deals

are the deals that
you don't make.

Optimism. Yeah.

I remember what that felt like.

Then let me share some of mine.

You should be glad this
is a drink in my hand

and not a .45.

Look, I know I'm
not welcome here.

I heard you. But I wanted
to tell you something

that I didn't get
to say earlier.

I didn't change my plans
just because of my feelings

for your daughter.

The time we spent
together making music...

well, it was one of the
highlights of my life.

And I never really
knew my father,

but I like to think...

well, I like to think

he would've been
something like you.

Have a good show.

hearts of country stars

I prefer to think we
make dreams happen.

Not mine.

Seems like we're
in good company.

Then I'll make it quick.

'Cause I've got
some news for you

you're gonna want to hear.

A little bird told me

that Nicky got Mackenzie Gates,

from Open Horizon, to
come to the show tonight.

- Okay...
- Gigi,

they're coming so
she can convince them

to give her a tour.

Now, I know I've told you
that my biggest regret

was allowing your mama to
claw her way ahead of me

and snatch all the
fame for herself.

Okay. So...

So I am telling you...
No, I am begging you.

Do not let this happen to you.

If you've ever wanted
it, you snatch first.

Thank you for
coming last-minute.

I know this concert's
a bit of a mystery,

but the truth is, I'm
gonna be gone for a while.

And I just wanted to

stand up here and make music
with y'all one more time.

So I'm gonna bring out one
of my favorite performers,

my amazing daughter...

Gigi Roman.


I didn't think you
were singing tonight.

You're not the only one
full of surprises, Daddy.

As I was saying, my amazing
daughter Gigi Roman.

There's no mistake here.

Albie Roman is guilty of m*rder.

Then explain how
Clive Grayson's body

was found on your property.

What the hell are
you talking about?

How is that even possible?

Anonymous tip came in.

I'm sorry to say it checked out.

Why would I want to
k*ll Clive Grayson?

Well, it seems he's
been blackmailing you

about an old hit and run.

The money was in his account.

Guess you got tired
of paying him off.

No, Bill, this is ridiculous.

- This is ab...
- Tripp DeWitt, you are under arrest...

- No, this is ab...
- For the m*rder of Clive Grayson.

What the hell did you do?

This isn't over, pal,
not by a long sh*t.

What just happened?

I have an idea.

It was you, wasn't it?

All my life I've dreamt
of punishing the man

who k*lled my father.

Like I said, I just
had the wrong man.

- So you...
- Planted the body at Tripp's lake house.

Tipped the cops.

It was easier than you
might think, actually.

Well, my family's
grateful, but...

I didn't do it to
win you back, Nicky.

I did it 'cause
Tripp had it coming.

But now that we're talking,

you want to tell me
how the concert went?


let's just say that

I don't think a tour is in
the cards for me anymore.

So you're giving up, then.

I did what you said.

I doubled down, I
bet on myself, and

nothing I tried worked.

Well, then, maybe you
misunderstood my advice.

Because the time to
double down is after

nothing you tried worked.

Hell of a night.

I reckon.

Let me ask you something.

What's it like for everything

to always just work out?

You k*ll a man. Nothing.

You don't want a merger.

Goes away.

Life does what you want

without you lifting a finger.

I suggest you go home
and sleep it off.

Before you say
something you'll regret.

No, I'm done with
regret. I'm tired of it.

I'm tired of being judged.

That's funny, coming from a man

that slept with
his sister's wife.

Said the man who
knocked up the gardener.

Or was she... Was
she the caretaker?

It's hard to keep track.

Come on, Pops, we finally
have something in common:

bastard children.

This is not a road
you want to go down,

I assure you.

Oh, it looks like you want
to take a swing at me.

Well, I ain't Jamie, boy.

I'm gonna hit you back.

Oh, my God.

How hard you are
on the rest of the world.

How easy you are on yourself.

If you don't like
this family, leave!

Way ahead of you,
Pops! Way ahead.

Skyler Samms offered me a
job running a new subsidiary

ten times the size of
Monarch, and I took it.

But you know the best
part? Is I get to watch you

run Monarch into the ground.

Then the whole world gets to
see you for what you really are.

Just a tired old man

with nothing but his
ego and a six-string.

Well, that's all you really need

if you actually have talent.

And pretty soon, Skyler
will see what I see,

which is everything
that you'll never be.


Looks like I learned more
from you than I thought.

Mackenzie, wait.

Uh, thanks for the invite.

That was, uh, quite the
show your family put on.

I promised you it
wouldn't be boring.

The Romans never are.

You can't change
who your family is,

and truth be told,
I wouldn't want to.

But if you look past the drama,

I can put on one hell
of a show all by myself.

Country music needs a new queen,

and, no, I'm not my mama.

But the world's changing; it
doesn't want perfect anymore,

it wants real.

b*at up and knocked down,

and standing back up
again and fighting.

And that's what
you saw last night.

That was me. That was real.

It sure was.

So back my tour,
and I promise you

there won't be an empty seat,

because I will not sleep

until every ticket is sold.


I don't know what to say.

I think the word you're
looking for is "yes."

Mr. Roman.

I came here because there's
something I need to tell you

about the man you just hired.

You mean your son.

Boy's been a pain in my ass

since he was born,

but he's damn good
at what he does.

I never gave him a fair shake,

and I hope you do.

You're lucky to have him.

Albie Roman, who knew under
that Stetson was nothing

but a soft caramel center.

And, Albie, when you're
done mourning your wife,

I know a Dallas girl
made good who's still

a sucker for cowboys.

I'm sorry.

Really I am, Geeg.

I don't know why it took
me so long to say it.

I know I could say it every day

for the rest of my life,

and you'd be right
to never forgive me.

I hope you can.

Me, too.

But today ain't that day.

beautiful, isn't he?

Yeah, he is.



I love you,

and I know I screwed up.

Just take care of him,
and be there for him.

He's gonna need you.

What about you?

What about us?

I don't know.

Your own tour,
Mom? That's awesome.

Now, are you sure that you
don't want to come? Hmm?

I still haven't
got an opening act.

Yeah, come on. It'll be fun.

I don't know. I think I'm
gonna stay with Grandpa.

I don't like thinking
of him being all alone

- in that big house.
- Oh, my God.

You know, whatever I
did right in my life,

I can see it in both of you.

But, Mom, I do have an
idea for your opening act.

- Hey.
- Oh.

Next house
get a gate, or a moat.

It's way too easy for y'all to
be popping around all the time.

I saw Mackenzie from, um,
Open Horizon this morning.

She offered me
a... a world tour.

But me being me, I said, I said
she had to sweeten the deal.

Nicky, if the credits
roll with you getting

a happy ending while I end
up eating a frozen pizza

crying myself to sleep alone,

I'm not really sure this
is the amazing story

that you think it is.

I said I wouldn't take it
unless you were part of it.

- As your opening act.
- No, co-headlining.

The Roman Sisters Tour.

You and me, equal billing.

Taking the world by storm,

like we used to
dream of as kids.

Well, come on, say something.

For real?

Gigi, Mama was wrong.

There can be two queens.

So what do you say?

So how about making both
our dreams come true?

She'd have been proud of you.

I'm proud of you. And it's

I am so proud of you, Gigi.

But one last word of advice.

I know I told you about
all the mistakes I made,

but there's one I
didn't tell you about.

I didn't just take a
back seat to my sister.

- I did something worse.
- What's that?

I trusted her.

- You called?
- Yeah. With Luke leaving,

I'll be running Monarch.

I could use a man that
knows the music business.

That a job offer?

We'll see.

- Bye.
- Bye.

Things are changing, Nellie.

Yeah, all these goodbyes
make me so thirsty.

- Sip it slowly. It burns.
- Mm.

I'll meet you girls
in San Antonio.

No bronzer without supervision.

We came here for one reason.

To punish the Romans for
everything they've done

to both of us.

We had a plan.

Yeah, well, plans change.

I'm done, Catt.

Well, not my plans.

So, Jamie, if you're wondering,

you're done when
I say you're done.

Hey, thank you for everything.

Don't thank me yet.

Party's just getting
started, sister.
