Scene shifts to interrogation room.
MICHAELA: I know what you’re going through. I was responsible for the death of my best friend. She was practically my sister.
GRIFFIN: What are you talking about?
MICHAELA: Devon’s file. It’s all right here. It was supposed to be simple, right? You and Devon were gonna pop in, grab some cash. What happened?
GRIFFIN: You know what happened. You have the report.
MICHAELA: The victim was another customer. Just some guy. Do you remember what he was buying?
GRIFFIN: Powdered doughnuts.
MICHAELA: So he turns around and sees two men in ski masks walk into the store. Decides he’s gonna be a hero, whips out his gun. Two shots right in the chest.
GRIFFIN: I know how the story ends.
MICHAELA: Right, so Devon goes to jail. Murder one. Because he’s the shooter. And we know he’s the shooter because that’s what you told the police. I guess my question here is is that what really happened, Griffin? It says you cut a deal. The first perp to turn gets to frame the narrative, so—
GRIFFIN: I don’t want to do this anymore.
MICHAELA: No, of course you don’t. ‘Cause you sent Devon to prison, and that’s where he died. You were the shooter, weren’t you?
GRIFFIN: I’m done talking about this!
MICHAELA: And you’ve carried that shame with you for 15 years. I know because I have carried the same shame. Griffin, we are all connected. That is why you came back, I’m sure of it. You’re not the only one. We have all been given a chance to start over. This is yours.
