What the hell?

You're under arrest.

Why did Molly have your blood under her fingernails?

Bruno: Grace said that Molly thought someone was watching her, stealing her things.

Now, Molly's stuffed monkey has been stolen from the crime scene.

We know the photo had to be taken from this apartment.

Do you live alone?

It's just me and me little boy.

What do you want?

You keep my secrets, I'll keep yours.

I need you to get a vial of Molly Ryan's blood.

You're off the case?


She thinks I've got feelings for you.

I like your necklace. I knew a girl who had one just like it.

The necklace is from a special club, where anyone with enough money can have whatever they want.

When I get my hands on whoever k*lled her, I promise you, before they die, they're going to suffer.

Isn't the Royal Ballet in London?

(chuckling): You're not going to London.

I am, too.

The Royal Ballet's the best in the world.

You can dance in Ireland, where you're with family.

Where you have people to look after you.

I don't need anybody to look after me.

I look after meself just fine.

I want you to get me into the Courtenay.

Grace: Natalie, where are you?

Luc's been arrested.

Please, just... call me back.

I need you.

(Bruno breathing hard)


You are a dirty cop, aren't you?


(both laugh)


Stop it.


Because it's ugly.

Nah, it isn't.

It's beautiful.

How did you get it?

Come on, tell me.

Every scar has a story.

Like this one.

When I was a little kid, at my nan's, fell off the f*re escape pretending to be a superhero.

How did you get yours?

That's a long story.

Well... I got nowhere I need to be, I can tell you that much.

I was 16.

It was winter break.

Um... my best friend, Ashley, was having a party, but... there was a snowstorm on the way.

My parents were worried I'd get caught in it.

So, of course, once they went to bed, I snuck out and I went anyway.

And it was all good, at first.

Until my dad showed up.

I, um...

I had never seen him so angry.

On the way home, he didn't say a single word.

And it was snowing.


So I shut my eyes and I just tried to sleep.

And then the next thing I knew, the whole world was spinning.

I'm so sorry, Nat.

You know, it's-it's the truth.

You had no control over that situation; you had no control over the car, did you?

You were just being a normal kid.

(Natalie sniffs)


(Natalie exhales)

You can answer it if you need to.

No, no. There are far more pressing matters to attend to here.

Hey. Is he okay?

Did I not tell you to go home?

I'm not...

You should not be seen anyplace around here.

I'm not going home until I know what's going on.

Is he going to jail?

I'm gonna be honest with you, Grace, all right?

It is a serious charge, it is not his first offense...

What about bail? I can talk to James.

After you two jumped a train to Paris, bail is about as realistic as the Tooth Fairy.

You can get him off, though, right?

I've gotten guys off for a lot worse than distributing a bag of coke, so don't worry. It'll be fine.

I need to see Luc.

He's been through so much.

Look, I'm gonna give you some advice.

And I'm not gonna charge your stepdad for it.

The fact of the matter is, Luc is a drug addict.

You got to move on.


There are plenty of hot guys out there.

Some even have jobs.

(loud thud)

Man: Grace!

Woman: Grace!

(reporters clamoring)

Reporter: Grace, did you get high with him?

Grace: Please...

Reporter: How often?

Please, just...

Grace, is Luc Pascal's drug use tied to Molly Ryan's m*rder?

(reporters clamoring)

Man: Stop! Get back.


She's been through enough.

Leave her alone. Come on.

(reporters clamoring)

Get back!

I said leave her alone.


I said get back!


Get back!

Get back!

(reporters continue shouting)

Get a sh*t. Get a sh*t in there.

In there. In there, in there.

All right.

I think we lost 'em.

I... I honestly don't know how I would have gotten out of there if you hadn't come to the rescue.

It's not right, you know.

Especially after all you've been through.

These people don't care what's right, they just want a story.

I wish I could say I was getting used to it, but they follow me, watch my every move.


They're nothing but bullies.

Come on.

I hate bullies.


They broke your phone?


This is all such a nightmare.

Uh, can I see it?



Sometimes, it's just a loose SIM card.

I really need to reach my sister, I've been trying to call her all night, and...

I can fix it.

You can?

I just need the right tools.

Actually, I've got one at the shop I work at.

Thanks so much.

You've done more than enough. I can take care of it.

The shop's just walking distance, actually, but...

I-If you'd rather not, I understand.

You've only just met me.

Hey, you know what?

You've already saved me once today.

If you can fix my phone... dude, you're a friend for life.

Brilliant. Uh... my shop's right this way.

Gutterie: Hello.

I told you, Ms. Hall is busy.

That is a very pretty dress.

It's very Parisian.


Sorry to interrupt your game of Candy Crush.

What is it, Gutterie?

Your confidential informant, you know, the guy who bought the dr*gs from Luc Pascal, is he well hung?

Excuse me?

The arresting officers did perform a strip search on him before they sent him out, right?

Because there's no mention of that in the paperwork there.


And the officers failed to maintain visual contact with him until the deal was made.

How are you going to convince a jury that the CI did not pull the dr*gs out of his own ass?

Man, your coppers, they really screwed the pooch on this one, didn't they?

Good help is just so hard to find these days.

You and I both know that this will not hold up in court.

I want it dropped.

That's for the magistrate to decide.

And his docket is full until tomorrow morning.

Well, then I will bring the donuts.

And we will celebrate.

We've got 22 hours to get Luc Pascal to talk.

So is this your MO, hmm?

Cooking breakfast for the ladies?

Only the very lucky ones.

Go on. Have at it.

It's nicer than it looks. I promise.

Don't give up my day job, yeah?

I never said that.

Who would've thought I'd end up having morning-after breakfast with the detective investigating my sister for m*rder?

I guess your Crown Prosecutor friend has better instincts than I thought.

Yeah, well, I suppose she sort of knows me better than I know myself.

Wait a minute.

Were you two a...


You and Gwendolyn Hall. Were you two a thing?


Not, well, not like a thing...

I knew it.

Well, it's over anyway.

Ancient history.

(phone chimes)

Oh, my God.

I have 11 messages from Grace.

Everything all right?

Luc's been arrested. For dr*gs.

Grace spent all night at Scotland Yard.

Her cell phone's off.

I'm sure she's fine.

No, she's not fine.

She was up all night, she's probably just sleeping now.

Yeah, there's no answer at our hotel room.

I'd better go.

Do me a favor, will you just sit down, finish your breakfast.

I'll make you a coffee.

You know what? You're right.

You should... you should go and check on her.

Thanks for understanding.

What the hell do you think you're doing?

Even after your chat with Internal Affairs, you're still not answering my texts, taking my calls.

I was getting worried.

But I can see now you've been quite busy.

Sexy beast, that one.

Look, I did what you asked.

I'm not even on the Molly Ryan investigation anymore.

I'm no use to you now.

Don't sell yourself short, Detective.

You're of tremendous use.

You still have the vial of Molly Ryan's blood, don't you?

Find a viable suspect for the girl's m*rder, dab a little blood on their clothing, and close this case once and for all.

I am not planting evidence.

Since when?

Didn't think it'd be so busy this time of day.

I'm doing everything you ask of me.

Grace, it's Roz.

Any news on Luc?

Call me back.

Is everything to your liking, Mr. Purferoy?

Yes, quite.

This is my cousin, Kevin McGee.

In from Ireland for his birthday.

Thought I'd show him the sights.

Nice to meet you, mate.

I didn't know you had family in Ireland.

Oh, yes, there are Purferoys as far afield as Nova Scotia, Canada.

Well, cousin or not, you know we have a strict vetting process here.

For all guests.

Yes, of course.

Especially when they're IRA sympathizers.

Oh, you're talking about this, are you?

Oh, I got that when I was a wee lad.

My brother's mate, Seamus, wee bit older.

He had one, we wanted to be tough like him.

I didn't even know what it meant.

(both chuckle)

(soft chuckle)

You understand our policy toward unvetted guests is to kindly ask them to leave the premises immediately.

But considering your reputation in the community and your loyal patronage, I'm going to make an exception.

Just this once.

Colin: Thank you, Finch.

I'll remember that.

You're a gentleman.

When you said you worked at a shop, I never would've had you pegged as a tailor.

I'm not.

Not yet.

I'm an apprentice.

Mr. Hoyt, he's the tailor, he owns the shop.

Is he here?


Shop's closed, but I've got the key.

Mr. Hoyt trusts me just like he did my father.

He was a tailor in this very shop before he d*ed.

He sat right there.

I lost my dad when I was nine.

I know how hard it can be.

It wasn't too hard.

He wasn't very nice to me.

All right.

Let's give it a go.

Molly had a dress exactly like this.

She did?

That's an odd coincidence.


It is.

I'm doing alterations for a customer.

Mrs. Brambley.

She's lost a bit of weight, I'm taking it in for her.

Look, her bed wasn't slept in.

She never came back here last night.

Have you heard from Gutterie?

I mean, he saw her this morning at the police station.

It's just, it's not like her to disappear like this.

Natalie, is it possible that Grace has just... gone on the run again?

No, no, of course not.

Luc gets arrested, Grace panics, she jumps on a train...

No, absolutely not, I mean, not after what happened last time.

She knows better than that.


I know my sister.

Her phone does not leave her hand.

It's been over an hour since her last voice mail.


(phone chimes)

Oh, damn it.

What is it?

It's just a news alert.

I get them whenever Grace's name shows up in the press.

Wait, what?

"Grace Atwood with New Boy Toy after French Lover Lands in Lockup"?

Bruno: What the hell?

There you see Grace's new man playing "My Bodyguard" with the possible k*ller.

Fun never stops for Grace Atwood now, does it?

Reporting from outside New Scotland Yard, this is Veena Patel, and that's...

The Story.

Do you know this guy?


No, I've never seen him before in my life, I...

What if he's done something to Grace?

Natalie, don't get ahead of yourself.

But you've read what people have said about her, they're out for blood.

It's social media, they hate everybody.

I don't take kindly to people who muck me about.

Did Molly muck you about?

What exactly are you insinuating?


Nothing at all. I'm sorry.

Neville will always be my little boy.

Now, what's this all about?

Um, my sister's missing.

And Neville was the last person she was seen with.

Bruno: Her sister was Molly Ryan's flatmate.

The same girl who was photographed from this very apartment.

The same girl who was m*rder across the street.

You're not suggesting...

Neville is a gentle boy.

He would never hurt anybody.

Did he ever take an interest in any of the women from the neighborhood?

You mean, like, bothering them? No.

No. My son keeps to himself.

He spends his time on his sewing machine.

Not hassling women.

"Sewing machine," but he...

There's no sewing machine here.

Well, no...

Does he have a workplace?

Take classes somewhere?

Have a studio?

He couldn't.

Bruno: Mrs. Harris, I understand that you're just trying to protect your boy, I do.

And you know what... I even believe you when you tell me that you don't think he's done anything wrong.

But the thing is sometimes the people that we love, well, we don't know them as well as we think we do.

Sometimes they surprise us.

Sometimes, you know, they just make a mistake.

Now, we... we want to protect Neville.

We want to help him make sure that he doesn't make a mistake that will change the rest of his life.

Now the only way that we can help him is if you help us.

Hey, there.

You all right?

It's okay.

You pushed me.

Molly had a stalker, and it was you... wasn't it?

You stole that dress.

You stole her... stuffed animal.

No, I wanted something to remember her by.

I didn't k*ll her if that's what you're thinking.

I swear, I never even touched Molly.

But I'm not gonna lie.

I wanted to. I quite fancied her...

You didn't even know her.
