Script & Commentary

Scene switches to Evie’s parents front door. Michael knocks on the door.

MICHAELA:  Hi, Beverly. I’m really sorry to show up like this, but I’m here because I need to own my truth.

BEVERLY: Michaela. Lovely to see you. Come in. [CHUCKLING] Come in. Oh, come, look. Have you seen the new curtains? Ah, wanted something simple, but they lift the entire room. [CHUCKLES]

Michaela looks confused.

MICHAELA: I didn’t think you’d want to see me.

BEVERLY: Of course I do. It’s so nice to have you here. I’m going on about these curtains, but I love these orange panels that I added. Oh, wait a minute. [TURNING IN THE OTHER DIRECTION] Evie! Michaela’s here. Evie! Evie?

GLEN: [TO MICHAELA} Amazing. Still the same age.

GLEN: [TO BEVERLY] Evie? Evie’s not here, hon. She’s at the market, remember? She went to the store. She’ll be home soon.

MICHAELA: She doesn’t know that…

GLEN:  I stopped telling her. I couldn’t give her that news and watch her life collapse every 15 minutes.

Scene switches to police precinct. Jared walks up to Michaela who just sat down at her desk. 

JARED: Hey. So, I did some digging. What is it? What happened?

MICHAELA: Nothing. I’m good. What do you, uh What do you got?

JARED: I’m not gonna stop asking, so why don’t you save us both some time?

MICHAELA: I went to Evie’s house, and I saw her parents.

JARED: Why would you do that to yourself?

MICHAELA: I don’t know, Jared, ’cause the last time I saw-

JARED: Mick, it wasn’t your fault.

MICHAELA: [SIGHS]

JARED: You were cleared. The department did an investigation, and they cleared you. You can’t put yourself through that again. Hey. Please. Don’t waste your miracle on your pain. You deserve better.

MICHAELA: So, um

JARED: So, I looked at Kelly Taylor and her husband, Patrick. No criminal records for either.They own some commercial properties. Uh rental workspace building, – downtown mall, a couple gas stations.

MICHAELA: Kelly owned a mall?

JARED: Nothing fancy. More like a shopping center near a subway. Shoe shine, doughnuts, hair salon

MICHAELA: Thank you.
