05x01 - sh*t in the Dark

Post by bunniefuu »

Because I love you, you idiot.

DENNIS: 'Cause I love you too.

Davia suggested that I
take one of those DNA tests.

I mean, what if I find someone

that could have taken me
in after my parents d*ed

but just didn't?

I found money in my discretionary fund

to build the women's center.

MALIKA: What about the encampment?

LUCIA: The mayor ordered the sweep.

I can't go over his head.

MALIKA: If you won't do
anything, then I will.

- I'm Councilwoman Lucia Morales,

and I did not authorize this sweep.

GAEL: Jazmin and Spencer

are willing to co-parent with me,

so our baby will have

the love and support of three parents.

I would be very happy

for you and Spencer to adopt our baby.

I think I changed my mind.

SILAS: Welcome to the farm, Mariana.

- It's nice to meet you.
- It's nice to meet you too.

She's missing?

You really think she'd go to this farm

without telling anyone?

I'm a friend of Joaquin's.

JOAQUIN: I think Jenna is in a cult.

I wanna leave.

I will get her back safely.

I need you to stay with the car

and just be ready to get away.

- Joaquin!
- Hey!

All right, come on. Come on.


ADAM: Stop! I said stop!


Stop! I said stop!

Don't sh**t!



JENNA: Oh, my God! Oh, sh*t.

- JENNA: Oh, my God!
- JOAQUIN: All right.

You're... You're okay. You're okay.

What did you do? Damn it!

- Here, here, put pressure on it with this.
- Okay.

What happened? Is someone hurt?

Get away from us, man!

I told him not to sh**t!

Go, before I b*at the sh*t out of you!


Jenna. Jenna, go get my truck.

- Where?
- It's over there behind the trees.

- Okay.
- Hurry.


No, no. No, no. Don't...
Don't try to speak.

We need to call an ambulance!

We don't have time for an
ambulance to get out here.

MARIANA: You're gonna be okay.
We're gonna get some help.

We're gonna take you to
hospital. You're gonna be fine.

All right. We... We gotta
get him in the truck.

- Here, here. Grab his legs.
- Okay.

- Jenna, grab his other leg.
- Okay, I got it.

JOAQUIN: All right. Up, up, here we go.

Get under... Get under
him. Careful. Careful.

All right.

Here we go. Alright, alright.

Quick, quick. Easy.

- Slowly, slowly, slowly.

Find the closest emergency room.

- Slow down. He can't take it.

- JOAQUIN: Keep pressure on it.

Just hang on, Evan, please.

Please, just don't go to sleep, okay?

Don't go to sleep.

I'm sorry

for any pain that I may have caused

by deciding to keep the baby, but...

I just... I hope you can understand.

Of course, we do.

Here you go.

(SOFTLY) Thank you.

Hi, my love.

So, have you thought of a name yet?


ISABELLA: I was thinking...

maybe we could call her Lyric.

- Oh. Oh, you don't like this.

(SHUSHING) It's okay.

If that's okay with you.

- Lyric.
- Yeah.

- Yeah, that's a pretty name.

It's lovely.

So how do you feel about
Isabella changing her mind?

I feel totally blindsided.

Like she's... she's all over the place.

I mean, she was so sure

that she wasn't ready to be a mother.

I mean, she convinced me.

And I'm still convinced

that she's not capable
of raising our baby.

And I think that once
the rush of emotions pass,

maybe she'll realize that.

Oh, God. I'm... I'm so sorry, guys.

I... I know this is hard for you too.

Hey, hey, no.

We're more worried about you.

I mean, this has been
such a roller coaster.

We're here for you and the
baby, no matter what, man.

Thanks, man. I appreciate that.

Come here.

GAEL: I'll see you guys.

on the joy of giving a sh*t about you?

MALIKA: Luca got his DNA results.

He has an aunt.

Oh! Okay, well, she sucks.

But isn't this why you took that test?

So that you could find someone

Does he have any family?

Just his sister, but she's in London.

What do the police say?

Um, they, uh... They
interviewed us at the hospital.

I assume now they're heading to the farm

- Hey, Malika.

TRACEY: Hey, there she is.

Our little sweep stopper extraordinaire.

Well, thank you.

But all the credit goes to Lucia.

Thank you. (CHUCKLES)

Besides the fact that
we pissed off the mayor,

the feedback from our constituents

has been overwhelmingly positive.

But I can't stop the sweeps
from happening indefinitely.

We need to find housing

for the people of the encampment.

Let's reach out to all
the support agencies

and see if we can get
them to partner with us

on a solution, okay?
Let's get this done.


I have an idea.

What if we use your discretionary funds

to buy that apartment building?

Is there still a deal to be made?

Well, I don't see why not.

It's just sitting there empty.

And I think it would get

a lot of positive press for you,

tangibly making a
difference in their lives

by using your own funds
to address this crisis

with a housing first model.

It's not a bad idea.

Or, you know, I mean, is it?

What about the women's center?

We go back to trying to get it funded

through the city council.

It's still extremely important to me,

but the first priority

is to house the people of the encampment

before they're swept out.

to do that, Malika.
