[SUMAN VIRK] Previously,
on Under the Bridge...

[STAN LOWE] For the death of Reena Virk,

on a scale of one to 10,
how responsible were you

and how much was Kelly?

Three and seven.

That girl Reena went across the bridge.
Let's follow her.

Want her to say she's sorry.

I'll steal her address book
and call everyone

and tell 'em how much
of a f*cking bitch she is.

She's gonna be pissed.

- [RECEPTIONIST] Where are you from?
- Victoria.

Where're you really from?

I don't know. I'm adopted.

[CHARLES GODFREY] You wanna
walk out there? I'd go with you.

I never really understood
why you like to do that.

You still think Gabe would
be here if it wasn't for me?

I don't know. [SNIFFLES]

I find Glowatski...

guilty of second-degree
m*rder as charged.

I'm gonna make sure
everybody knows your heart.

[JOSEPHINE BELL] Don't you
have to go to your trial?

So stupid that I still have to.

"Stay away from the bridge,"

parents said.

As if it was a place, an abyss,

holding all the savagery.

[SEAGULLS CAWING]

Dark forces who could beat
and attack your daughter,

or who could turn your daughter
into a brutal and careless thug.

Everyone at Shoreline had
been told by their parents,

"You are never going out again."

As if this darkness was
something they could hide from

rather than something
that lives within us all.

So, how then can one begin
to confront this darkness?

She's tryin' to pin this on you.

[WHIRRING, CLICKS]

[STAN] Not only is Kelly Ellard guilty,

she's proud of what she did.

Let that sink in for a moment.

After committing this
ruthless act of v*olence,

she bragged about it
to anyone who would listen.

The Crown will prove to you
beyond a reasonable doubt

that Kelly Ellard m*rder*d
Reena Virk in cold blood.

And that beneath this innocent veneer,

you will see the truth.

A person capable of a heinous crime.

[HUSHED CHATTER]

"Monster!"

"k*ller Kelly!"

Now, I trust you have all remained...

impartial to the media.

But believe me when I tell you,
you have never seen such judgment

laid upon an upstanding young lady
before she's even gone to trial.

Are newspapers and television broadcasts

desperate to shock and titillate

the arbiters of whether
someone is guilty or innocent?

No!

I know you don't believe that.

And I know you'll give her
a fair shake in this trial.

[JUDGE] Will the Crown and
the defense please present

the order of witnesses?

- [QUIETLY] Hi.

You haven't heard from Glowatski,

No. Why?

Well, 'cause he hasn't
answered his summons.

He got on the shuttle this morning,
then chickened out.

Come on.
You're the only one he listens to.

We don't talk about the trial.

[ROY BENTLAND] Why not?

Because I'm not his lawyer,
and it's not my place.

I don't know if you've noticed,

but Kelly Ellard has
the best lawyer in BC

and Warren is the only person
who can say what she did.

So, if Warren doesn't show up,
she's probably gonna walk.

I'm here to observe.
I'm not here to get involved.

Oh, Jesus Christ, Rebecca,

[RAJ MASIHAJJAR] Hey.
Okay, are you ready to go?

Yeah. Can I have some help with the tie?

- [RAJ] With your tie? Of course, you can.

Wow, you look so grown up in your suit.

- There we go. There we go.

- Thank you, you too.

- Just relax for a second, okay?
- [REPORTER] [ON TV] Today's the day.

We are mere hours away
from learning the verdict

in the Kelly Ellard trial.

Ellard, nicknamed
"k*ller Kelly" by the press,

has been accused of the
m*rder of Reena Virk,

for which Warren Glowatski
has already been charged.

Outside the courtroom,
crowds have gathered,

anxious to hear the outcome.

Will the Virks finally get justice

or will Kelly Ellard walk?

Very nice.

[♪ GENTLE MUSIC PLAYING]

Okay. Um, just g-go
sit down over there, okay?

[SIGHS] Okay.

[COURTROOM AUDIENCE WHISPERING]

- [JUDGE] Quiet please.
- [WHISPERING DIES DOWN]

[JUROR] After five days
of deliberations,

we find the defendant, Kelly Ellard,

guilty of second-degree m*rder.

[EXCITED HUSHED CHATTER]

[JUDGE] Quiet, please.

As for sentencing.

We must view the accused
as an individual.

Kelly Ellard has a,

an extraordinary and diverse
network of family and friends.

She's achieved good marks in school.

On account of all these reasons,

it is incumbent on me
that a 15-year-old receive

the minimum sentence
of five years in prison.

[MURMURING]

Quiet, please!

Kelly.

You are young and intelligent.

You have a wonderful family
that believes in you,

and I can only say you
must never let them down.

More importantly,
you must never let yourself down again.

I think you owe it to Reena Virk

to live a life that's exemplary.

Court dismissed.

[CAM] Some justice, eh?

[REBECCA] My publishers
will be thrilled.

Yeah, bad for the world's
good for you, I guess, huh?

[♪ SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Sorry... I didn't mean it like that.

[REBECCA] No, you're right.

You were right about Warren.

I thought that the reason
that I felt close to Warren

was because he reminded me
of my brother.

But I think he just
reminded me of myself...

'cause we're both the reason
that someone died.

Becca, Gabe fell.

I don't know that Gabe fell.

[CAM] Even if he didn't...

it's not on you.

And I never should've said it was.

You and Warren are not the same.

Yeah.

[DOOR OPENS]

[ROY] I'm buying, Stan.

You need to go sit with them?

Not officially. [SCOFFS]

[REBECCA] What do you mean?

I'm, uh, [SIGHS]

I'm actually resigning.

Really?

I'm sick of people being scared
when I walk into a room.

You know? [SIGHS]

[SIGHS]

So, are you gonna
get out of Victoria now?

Yeah, maybe.

I, um...

I found out my birth family is, uh,

Tsleil-Waututh.

[SIGHS]

It's north of Vancouver.

Just on the mainland.

Are you gonna meet 'em?

Yeah, I think so.

[REBECCA] The nights with your

A boy would get high for the first time,

and with his red eyes,

in the dark waters of a saltwater

Under the bridge, there might've been
discovered some malevolent spirit.

[DOOR SHUTS]

The force seemed unreal
to the youth of View Royal

as if the night continued to linger,

to hold them in some
kind of fierce embrace.

But this darkness, this evil spirit,

was revealed in the end to be
something oddly human.

A misspoken word. A broken heart.

Pain, buried deep.

♪ I won't hurt you ♪

After the events of this night,
there would never truly be closure.

Stories never really end.

There can be only the promise,

the hope for reconciliation.

As though being at a sleepover,
and a girl is dared,

"Tell me your secrets."

So, she shares all the
worst things about herself.

And from the pillow next to her,
she hears a whisper.

"That's okay. We can still be friends."

All there can be is a call for mercy.

♪ I won't hurt you,

It's mercy, and mercy alone,

that transforms the human heart.
