Script & Commentary

Scene switches back to office where Jared is being investigated. The two men reenter the room. 

CDIU AGENT 1: Detective Vasquez, you’re stripped of 10 days’ pay.

Jared stands up.

JARED: That’s it? Have a nice day, fellas.

He leaves room and enters the hallway. When he turns the corner he sees Director Vance sitting in the hall waiting for him.

JARED: I knew someone must have saved my ass. What do you want?

VANCE: You’re more valuable to me inside that precinct than off the job forever.

JARED: You want information about Michaela.

VANCE: I knew you were a smart man. You’ll tell me what she does, where she goes, who she talks to all of it.

JARED: Or?

Vance scoffs, and walks away.

The scene then switches to a bar, where Michaela finds him.

MICHAELA: If you needed a double to get over it, I’m guessing the hearing didn’t go that well.

JARED: I only got docked 10 days’ pay.

MICHAELA: That’s it? Jared.

MICHAELA: You standing up for me meant a lot. It made me realize that I want—

Jared still does not look at her.

JARED: Look, if you don’t mind, I’m kind of done thinking about the hearing.

He briefly looks at her.

MICHAELA: I should go.

JARED: Yeah, of course.

Jared walks away, leaving Michaela at the bar.
