Julie, is that you?



- Julie?
- Julie?

It's me. Are you okay?

Julie?



Julie, we're worried about you.



Open the door.



Open the door.

- Julie, open the door.
- Go away, you psycho!

- Open the door.
- Come on, open the door.

- Julie, open the door.
- Open the door!









Let me out!

Let me out, I want to get out!

Julie, you have to push
for the baby, Julie.

Okay?

No.

Count to three, okay?



One, two...

No!

No!

Push!

Now push!







So, have you been taking
your prenatals

like we talked about last time?

Ah, I was actually gonna
go get them today, so...

Please do, Tracy,
it's really important.

And how have you been feeling?

Um, fine. Yeah.

Yeah? The nausea is gone?

Mm-hm, yeah, for the most part.

Well, I have to tell you,

you look great for 21 weeks.

Do you want to know what it is?

Um...

Yeah, you know,
I prefer not to know.

So you want to keep it
a surprise, huh?

Yeah, it was a surprise
all right.

Here.

Tracy, is everything okay
at home?

Uh, yeah, it's fine.

You know if you're in trouble,

there are people
who can help you.

I'm okay. It--it's okay.

Really.

You know what? I've got to go.

Okay, hey.

Don't forget your picture.

Oh.



You know, all right.

What is it?

It's a girl.

All right.

Thanks.

That'll be $25.



We accept credit cards
or personal checks, too.

Okay.

I don't suppose I can make it
out to cash, can I?

No, sorry, it has to be
to the clinic.

Ugh, okay.



- Your shoes.
- Oh, I forgot my shoes.

Um...







Wow, look who decided
to show up for work.



Where's your uniform?

I need to talk to Ed.

Yeah, Ed's busy.

- What's going on?
- Becca, please, it's important.

I need to talk to him.

You know, we were short-staffed
this morning.

Hey.

Yeah, Tracy just got in.

Mm-hm. She said
she wants to talk to you.

Okay.

He says go back.

Yeah, next time call ahead
so I can get a replacement.

Useless.

Come.

Hey, Trace.

Grab a seat.

What do you have in the bag?

Oh, this?

It's just stuff.

Okay. So what's going on?

Ed, I have to go.

Go? Go where?

Um, I don't know.

What do you mean
you don't know?

You're having trouble
with Bobby again.

I'm pregnant.

I've been trying to hide it
for a couple of months.

Just to figure out
what I'm gonna do,

but I'm gonna start
to show soon,

and if Bobby finds out,
he's gonna kill me.

I mean, he's told me
a million times

that if he finds out
I'm pregnant, he'll shoot me.

I told you before.

What he's doing to you
is not right.

- You should press charges.
- What for?

He may not be a cop anymore,
but that doesn't mean

they're not all buddies.

So, where you gonna go?
You got family? Friends?

A place to stay?

No. I'm all alone.

But that's why I need your help.

Well, my place is
pretty cramped right now,

- but I can talk to...
- Oh, no, Ed, I don't want

to stay at your house.

Um, I need an advance.

Okay.

Give me a couple of days
and I'll see what I can do.

No. I can't wait.

If Bobby finds out...



You know what?

Thanks anyway.

Wait, wait.



Maybe this can hold you over
for a couple of days.

It's--that's all I have left.

Thanks, Ed. I appreciate it.





Hey, baby.

Where you goin'?

Taking out the trash.

What, does it look like
I'm going to the beach?

Why aren't you wearing
your uniform then?

It got dirt on it.

What do you care anyways?

Did you want to help me?

You know, I, uh, didn't hear
you leaving this morning.

It's probably because you were
passed out on the couch.

Don't talk to me like that.

Let go of me.

Hey, look at me. I love you.

Yeah, yeah, I know.

It's just sometimes,
you know, you--you...

Hey, baby, I'm--I'm sorry.

Hey, come here.



It's my fault. Okay?

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry, baby.



Maybe you want to go
see a movie later?

- Yeah.
- Yeah?

That'd be great.





Okay.





All right, $60 a night.

In advance. Cash money.

No smoking, no pets,
and no guests.

I'm not a prostitute.

Yeah, right.

Did I say 40? It's 60.

Nice try.

All right.

You're in Room 17,

right outside to the right.

And don't be calling me
about the leaky shower head.

I already know it.

Have a nice stay.



Hm.



Hey, kiddo.



Can I call you kiddo?

You know, that's what my dad
used to call me.



So, you're a girl.

That just means things
are gonna be harder for you.

I'm sorry about that.



Goodnight.



Have you talked to your doctor?



Tracy McCann?

Oh, yes, that's me.

Hi.

I see you're expecting a girl.

- How far along are you?
- Oh, uh, 21 and a half, I think.

I don't see the father's name
on here.

Do you have permission to put
the child up for adoption?

Yeah, that's kind of a problem.

We're not together anymore.

And he doesn't really know
he's the father.

He's not really
the fatherly type.

Okay, I just think it's best
if he doesn't find out.

I'm afraid that is a problem.

- Without his signature...
- What if we just say

I don't know who the father is?

That can happen, can't it?

I'm sorry, I can't.

Look, I'm just trying to do
what's best for my baby.

I mean, you can understand that,
right?

All moms want to do what's best
for their children.

But this agency has
very strict policies

about these sorts of things.

Maybe they can help you
someplace else.

You know? No.

I...

Please.

Look, I'm begging you.

Please, help me.

Help this kid.

Come. Follow me.

We did have one couple
contact us, just today.

They haven't put a book
together yet,

but I'm sure
they're not gonna have

any problem
getting a placement.

He's an investor, she's a, um...

she's a nurse.

That's perfect.

When can we meet?





Is this place for real?



Come on. They're waiting.







I'm Genevieve Parker.

Please, come in.

Hi. I'm Tracy.

Nice to meet you.

If you don't mind,
I'll just wait in the car.

As you wish.

Come on, Tracy,
I'll show you around.



Wow.

Oh. Wow.

- Those are cute boots.
- Oh, thanks.

My dad actually made them
for me.

He must be a cool guy.

Yeah. He was.



Do you mind leaving them
at the door?

- Oh, yeah, not at all.
- Here, let me help you

- with your things.
- Thank you.

The slippers are clean,
so you can put those on.

Maria is laying out tea
in the living room.

This way.

Wow.

This view is amazing.



Do you two live here alone?

Yes. Sometimes we have guests.

But mostly it's just us.

Wow.



Not too shabby, huh?



- Want a bite?
- Patrick, I made those

especially for Tracy!

Oh, yeah. I know, I know,

I just want to make sure
it wouldn't poison her!

Oh, stop it. She's gonna think

I'm a witch or something.

Oh, no, she's definitely, she--

Oh, God.

I'm just kidding, sweetie.

There is a full plate,
so please.

Oh.

Please, come sit.

Did you make these yourself?

Normally, I would have
had Maria make them,

but I'm practicing
my mommy skills, you could say.

Would you like some hot tea?

Um, tea is fine.

I like tea.

Okay. Maria,
can you bring out teas

and Patrick's medication,
please?



Why don't you have
the ginger tea?

- Oh, but, um...
- It's safer for the pregnancy

and it helps with anxiety
and morning sickness.

Have you had
any of that lately?

Um, I don't--

I don't really, I don't...

Oh, I'm--I'm so sorry. I...

You know what they say,
once a nurse, always a nurse.

I didn't know they said that.

Yeah, I just can't seem
to turn it off.

Why don't you tell us
more about you, Tracy?

- What do you do?
- Oh, me, well...

I'm a waitress, but I can
turn that off easily.

And I went to school
for a year,

but then I had to leave, so...

Really? What was your major?

Photography.

But then my dad got sick
and I had to sell my equipment,

so I don't really
do it anymore.

Photography. We just went
to the Andrew Urban--

- Urban exhibit.
- Yeah.

Yeah, do you still have
the catalogue?

Yes. I know exactly
where it is.

So, what about the father?

Mm, he's a musician.

And how does he feel
about the adoption?

Um...

He's, um...

He's dead. He, uh, he died.

I'm so sorry to hear that.

Yeah, it was really unexpected.

Hi. Can I help you?

Hey, yeah, where's, uh,
where's Tracy?

Oh, she's off today.

I was supposed to meet her
last night after her shift.

Yeah, well, she hasn't been
here for a couple of days.

She hasn't been in
for a couple days?

Then why did I see her
in here yesterday,

- with my own two eyes?
- Right.

She came in to talk to Ed
and then she left.

Oh, right, right.

So, where is she now?

I don't know.

Oh, you don't know?

You work here, don't you?

Yeah, but that doesn't mean
I know where she--

I swear to God!

- What are you doing?
- If you're lying for her...

- I don't...
- Where is she?

Let her go!

I said, "Let her go."

Oh.

Now leave.

Where's my wife?

She's gone.

And she ain't coming back,
so get out.

What are you gonna do about it?

See, I don't care
who you think you are.

But if I see your face
around my place again,

I will put a hole in it.

Now go.

Fine.

Fine.



This isn't over.





So, lately I've just been
focusing on fundraising

and volunteer work,
but once the baby comes,

I plan on being
a full-time mom.

So, you don't have
any kids already?

No. Not really.

I was pregnant once
when I was very young.

Oh, if you don't mind me asking,

what happened?

I had a car accident.

Oh. I'm sorry.

That--that must have been
devastating.

Yes, it was.

I ruptured my uterus
in the crash.

That's why I can't have
any kids of my own.

That was so long ago.

I mean, that's why
Patrick and I decided

that it was time for us
to start the adoption process

- before we got too old.
- I want to make sure

I can still dance
at my daughter's wedding.

Oh, not that we care
whether it's a girl or a boy.

Oh, no, it's okay.

And, yes, it is a girl.

- A girl.
- Yes, I knew it.

I've always dreamed
of having a girl.

Would you like
anything else to eat?

Oh my gosh,
I didn't even realize

I ate all the cookies.

No, I am thrilled
that you liked them.

Um, you know,
I really should be going.

Mrs. Cunningham
is still in the car, so...

Patrick can drive you back
if you like.

- Yeah, absolutely.
- No, you guys

have already done so much.

And thank you for the cookies

and for showing me
your beautiful home.

It's been so wonderful
getting to know you, Tracy.

You already feel like
part of the family.

It's been so good getting
to know you guys, too.

But I do want to let you know,
this is such a big decision,

I want to take some time
and think about it, so...

- Of course.
- Absolutely.

We understand.

Okay then.

- I should go.
- Okay.

This was so lovely.



You're a very thoughtful girl.

And your baby is very lucky
to have you.

Oh, gosh.

Thanks for saying that. I...

Sometimes I feel like such
a terrible mother, you know?

Giving away my baby?

Like, who does that?

It's okay.

Oh, gosh. I'm sorry, I'm so--

No, no, no, no.

Look, whatever decision
you make,

I'm sure everything
will turn out for the best.

Thanks. I hope you're right.

I know I am.

Okay, well, I should go.

- Don't forget your shoes.
- Oh my gosh!

I always forget these.

- Keep the slippers.
- Thank you.





So, how did it go?

It went well, yeah, very well.

And I got to keep
these cool slippers.

Oh!

So, it's a yes?

Um...

I don't know.

Couples like the Parkers
don't come along very often.

Think about all the advantages
your child would have.

Look, I know. I know that.

It's just,
it's such a big decision.

Look...

It's normal to have doubts.

But if you're going to do this,

you're not gonna find anyone
any better than them.

I've got a bunch of girls
all lined up

who would die
for an opportunity like this.

So, what will it be?

I don't know.
I have to think about it.

Tell you what.

You sleep on it

and then you get back to me
tomorrow morning.

I don't think it's fair
to keep the Parkers waiting.

Okay. I can do that.





Nuh-uh, girly.
Where's my money?

I paid you yesterday.

Oh, yeah! Well, today
is a whole other day.

See, no pay, no stay.

Yeah, okay! Let me just...

Let me just...



Uh, I can't find my wallet.

I know--I know it was in here.

Oh, yeah, right,
like I never heard that before.

Yeah, no, it was in here.

Really, it's not.
Please, just--just let me--

No, no, look,
this ain't no boarding house.

I'll get you the money
tomorrow, I swear.

I don't have
anywhere else to go.

Okay, wait, we got a way,
I can work this out.

You want to stay here?

Stay with me.

No, please. No, no, no.

Get your hands off her!
What are you doing?

- Who are you?
- Why? Who are you?



Call the cops on yourself,
how about that?

- Call the cops on me.
- Hello, 911?

Hi, this is Hank, Vogin Villa,
I got a guy trespassing

on my property
and I got a stiff.

- Room 17.
- That's right, get out of here.



- Patrick!
- Hey...



We tried to call you,
we didn't have your number.

Yeah, I don't have a phone.

Genny found your wallet
in our foyer.

She, uh, she found a receipt
for this motel in it.

Wanted to bring it to you.

- Thank you!
- You sure you're okay?

Yeah.

Yeah, I'm fine now.

All right, good.

So, you're really staying here?

Yeah, you know, the Ritz
was all booked up, so...

I'm joking, but yeah,

just until I find
someplace better.

Well, you have found
someplace better.

Just come stay with us
for the night.

Oh, no, I can't.

You totally can.

You got to take care
of yourself.

For the baby.

It's a nice offer,
but what would Genny think?

I'm sure Genny would love it.



Come on! Just for one night.

Okay? No strings attached.

Promise.



I hope it's okay.

The sheets and everything
are clean,

and you can leave
your dirty clothes outside

for Maria to wash them
in the morning.

Your things, mademoiselle.

Ah, thank you.

- What, no tip?
- Well, you know,

I'm kind of strapped for cash
right now, so...

There's soap and towels
in there.

But if you need anything else,
please just let us know.

Thank you.

I really can't
thank you enough.

It's nothing really, Tracy.

- We're happy to help.
- No, to me this is not nothing.

This is...

Oh.



Well, I'm gonna go to sleep.

It's been a day!

Still let us know
if you need anything.

Goodnight! Sleep well.

We're right around the corner.

- Night!
- Night!









"Tracy, I was going
to donate this.

Feel free to take
whatever you like.

Genevieve."







Oh my gosh.





Oh! You scared me.

Sorry, I was just walking past
and the door was open,

so I came in.

I didn't mean to intrude.

I suppose you think I'm foolish
doing all of this

before we even have a baby.

Um, no!

No, I think it's very sweet.

I guess I was trying
to fill a hole inside of me.

Nothing can really fill it.

I mean, nothing but...

Well, you know.

You know.

Um, you must be hungry.

Why don't I make you
some breakfast?

Genevieve...

I've made my decision.

I want it to be you and Patrick

who adopt the kiddo here.



- You mean it?
- Yes.



Patrick?

Patrick!

- What's wrong?
- Nothing, nothing.

We're gonna be a family.

Awesome! Yes!

Oh, whoa, whoa!
The baby, the baby!

Oh, right, the baby.

Tracy, I want you
to move in here with us.

- Oh, gosh, I can't.
- Of course you can.

I want you here
right where I can spoil you.

And I've got plenty
of mothering skills

that I need to practice
before the baby comes.

You can't say you'll get
a better offer than that.

Okay. But only for the sake
of the baby.

For the sake of our baby.

- It's our baby!
- Our baby!

I'm going to be a dad!



Wow. You really didn't
have to do all this.

I know I didn't have to, silly.

I wanted to.

Besides, Maria did
most of the work.

Uh, thank you, Maria.

This is so unreal.

I know what you mean.

- Yeah, I wasn't always rich.
- Do you ever get used to it?

Well, the novelty wears off
after a while,

but I like to always say,

it's better to be rich
and miserable

than poor and miserable.

It's better to not be
miserable at all.

That's true.

Here you go.

Get ready to sign
your life away.

Um...

What's this?

Patrick is joking as usual.

These are just some papers

that we had the lawyers draw up

to formalize our agreement.

My Genny don't mess around.

Okay, Patrick.

That's enough.

You did this just now?

No, we had them from before.

Oh, um, this is a lot.

You sure it's necessary?

Um, I'm...

I'm afraid so.

A lot of people
try to take advantage

of people in our position.

We have to protect ourselves.

But you know
I would never try--

I know, I know.

We just have to make sure that
you won't change your mind.

We've been burned before,

so we don't want
to go through that again.

So, you've tried
to adopt before?

Yes.

It's a long story.

I'd rather not
get into it right now.

Um.



If you need some more time...



You know? It's fine.

It's fine. I...





Great, now let's celebrate!

Oh!

Woo-hoo! Got you, didn't I?

Ah, it's beautiful out here.



- Genny, what are you doing?
- I'm fine.

I know you're fine,
but it's gorgeous in here.

- Why don't you come in?
- I'm enjoying my drink.





- Tracy?
- Tracy!

Tracy!



I got her neck!



Tracy?



Tracy?

Tracy, can you hear me?



Tracy...



How are you feeling?

Like I shouldn't have had
that third muffin.

Well, at least your
sense of humor is still intact.

Is everything okay?

I don't know.

You tell me.

Tracy, you and I,
we're the same person.

This is gonna sound silly,
but when I first saw you

I felt this deep connection.

Like we were meant
to find one another.

Do you usually have
high blood pressure?

Um, no, not that I know of. Why?

- These numbers are elevated.
- Is there a problem?

I mean, the doctor said
everything was fine.

Preeclampsia usually
doesn't show up

until after the 20th week.

Will the baby be okay?

I'll make sure of it.

- What's that?
- It lets me listen

to the baby's heart rate.

Do you mind?

Not at all.

Is she okay?

Shh.

Yes.

She's fine.

Can I listen?

Sure.

Oh, wow!

That's amazing!

I'm gonna leave
these things here, but please

don't touch them
when I'm not around.

Maria will come up
with your food

and a cup for your urine sample.

Don't worry, it's clean.

Is there anything else
I can help you with?

Um, yeah, actually.

Can I use the phone?

Yes.

Of course.

Thanks.

You can give the phone to Maria
when she comes up.

Okay, thanks.





Hey, Ed, it's Tracy, um...

I'm so sorry, I saw
what happened on the news,

and I feel like
this is all my fault.

I'll try and call back later.

Bye.





Thank you.

Uh, here's the phone.

Do you speak English?

- Vete!
- What?

Tienes que irte. Go!

I'm sorry,
I don't speak Spanish.

Esta gente está loca.
Tienes que irte.

- You have to go.
- I don't...



What the heck was that?





Genevieve!



Hey! What are you doing up?

I looked around the house,
but I didn't see anybody.

Patrick had to run
some errands,

and I'm just organizing
your birthing suite.

Um, birthing suite?

Here?

Isn't it safer to have a baby
in a hospital?

Trust me. Women have been
giving birth in their homes

for hundreds of years.

It's much more comfortable,

plus there's nothing they can
give you in the hospital

that I can't give you here.

What is it?

What's on your mind?

Um, you know what?

I've been thinking,
maybe it's best

if I stay somewhere else.

You and Patrick
have been so nice.

Where do you want to go?

I don't know, um...

What's going on, Tracy?

Nothing.

Come on, you can tell me.

We're family now.

If this is gonna work,
we're gonna have to be honest

with each other.

No phone, no car,
no place to stay.

What's going on?



Um, you know what?

You're right. I--

I haven't been
completely truthful

with you and Patrick.

You see, Bobby,
um, the baby's father,

he's not actually dead.

- Your bruises.
- Yeah.



Why didn't you tell me before?

I wanted to.

I just didn't know
how you would react.

It's okay.

It's okay. I...

I forgive you.

In the pool earlier,

I saw the place that I used
to work, it burned down.

I'm pretty sure Bobby did it,
and I just didn't want you

and Patrick to be
in any danger.

Listen,

as long as you're here with us,
you're safe.



You just don't know Bobby.

- He's crazy.
- I'm crazier.



Do you understand?





Night sweats.

They told me
that this would happen.



Crap! Crap, crap, crap!

Um...

Stop her!

- What?
- Get away from the window.

What's going on? What the--

- Stop.
- Ow, you're hurting me!

Why were you trying
to go out the window?

I just--I woke up and I was hot
and I wanted some fresh air.

Okay, I--I'm so sorry, Tracy.

We just thought that...

We couldn't let you
hurt the baby.

I would never...

Why would you think
I would jump out the window?

Wait here.





Mr. Parker, Mrs. Parker,

we, uh, got a notice
about a security breach.

I was just in the neighborhood.

Yeah, thanks for coming by
so fast.

Turns out it was just
a faulty latch

on one of the windows
on the back.

Oh, all right.

Well, if you're sure
that's all it was.

- Yes.
- Yeah.

Gave us quite the fright though.

But thank you for stopping by,
and, yeah, have a good night.

- Have a great night.
- You do the same.

- All right.
- Thank you.



I'll tell you what, I'll, um,

I'll just hang around
in the area, you know,

just in case.

Great. Thanks.

- Okay.
- All right.









Tracy, it's me.

Patrick, what are you doing?

I--I just wanted
to apologize again for earlier.

- I didn't mean to...
- What happened?

Why did you react like that?

- I wish I could explain.
- Please do.

I can't.

Look, Patrick, if you don't tell
me what's going on, I'm leaving.

Shh.

Genny, she just, um...

You know,
she's been through a lot.

Okay, through what?

I can't tell you.

Why?

You can tell me anything.

What did you do?

I just do what
she asks me to do.

Why?

Because...

I wouldn't be alive
if it weren't for her.

What do you mean?

I was... recovering

from my second suicide attempt.



I met her at Broocken View.

That psychiatric hospital?



Yeah, she, uh,

she's the one who got me out.

Before that, I couldn't find
a reason to live, so...

Oh, and the pill
that you weren't taking?

Lithium.

Yeah, she, uh,
she thinks I still need it,

but I got it under control.

- Yeah, I can tell.
- I really do.

The thing is...

when Genny gets something
in her head,

there ain't a god or a devil
that can stop her.



Anyways, I...

I gotta get back to her
before she wakes up

and notices I'm missing.

Okay, goodnight.

What the hell is going on?

I was just apologizing.

Go to your room.

Go, now!



Genny, he's telling the truth.

You stay away from him.

You hear?

He's not safe.

I know you don't see it,

but you stay clear.

- Understand?
- Yeah.

Good.



)

























Tracy, come in.



How are you feeling?

Uh, I'm fine.

Is, uh, is everything okay?

Of course.

I'm sorry about
my little episode yesterday.

I don't know what
I was thinking.

All I know is that one second,
I was sound asleep in my bed...

All of a sudden,
the alarm's going off,

I don't know what's going on,
and I'm scared half to death.

Then I see Patrick
in your room, I...

You're gonna think this...
is stupid, but...

I think it was kind of...

expectant parent nerves.

Please forgive me.

It's okay.

It was just a misunderstanding.

There's really nothing
to even forgive.

It's the only thing of his
I have left.

He was just a year old
when he died.

My son.

I thought you said
you couldn't have children.

I can't.

I think it was...
God's way of punishing me.

It was a beautiful day.



The sky was so blue.

And the water was sparkling
below the bridge.



I reached back
for just a second.



I met, um, I met Patrick

in the psychiatric hospital.

Yeah, he told me.



He told you?

That you met in a hospital.

I just assumed that you worked
there as a nurse.

I didn't...



I don't know why
I just told you all this.

You must be freaked out.

It's okay.



I was thinking
we could go shopping.

You look like you're getting
a touch of cabin fever.

I'd love to buy you
and the baby some things.

What do you say?

Okay.

Yeah, I'd like that.

Let me grab my purse.









Look at this.

It's perfect.

- An MP3 player?
- It's for the baby.

It comes with Bluetooth speakers
that you can stick to your skin.

Aww.

I wonder what type
of music she'll like.

No, it's not for music.

It's so she can get used
to the sound of my voice.

I want my baby
to get to know me right away.

It'll make the transition easier
for when you leave.

Yeah, of course.

You know what, I need to go
do something really quick.

Have a look around, see if
there's anything else you like,

and I'll be right back, okay?

Okay.

All right, kiddo, what do
you think about this one?

Mmm, yeah, it's too girly.

- Hi.
- Bobby, how did you find me?

Shut up and walk.

I can explain.

- I said walk!
- Okay, okay.



What?

What are you lookin' at, huh?

Thought so.

Come on.



Stop!

Don't.

Get in the car.

Get in the car.



Sit!





You get the hell out of the way!



I will run you over!



You stay right there.





She ain't goin' back with you.

Get out of the way.

She doesn't want to be with you.

You mind your own business.



- Move.
- No.

- I said move!
- She's carrying my baby.



What?





Pop the trunk.

Do you know how to get
to my house?

Yeah, I think so.

You need to go straight there.

Do not stop for any reason,
do you understand me?

Yeah, yeah, okay, okay.

Go, go.



I think he's still alive.

Good. Take him
to the birthing suite.

Yeah.

Come on, buddy, let's go.

Get you up.



Why did you leave me?
Where did you go?

I went to get you a camera,
as a gift.

It's gonna be okay, all right?

Come on.

















Tracy?

Tracy, is that you?

Come closer, huh?

Water.

I need water.

Please.











You have to let me out.

I can't.

Tracy, you hit me
with your car.

I'm begging you.

What would your father think?

I don't have the key, Bobby.

I have to go.

If she finds me here,
she'll get upset.

Why didn't you tell me?



Why didn't I tell you what?

- About the baby?
- Yeah.

Because I know you, Bobby.

- You would've killed us.
- Oh, come on!

You honestly think that
I could do something like that?

With all the times
that I've told you I love you.



- I have to go.
- No, wait, wait, wait, wait.

You're not safe.



Why?

I looked your friends up.

The Parkers.



They were in a nuthouse.

The both of them were.



Tracy,

she killed her own son.

Yeah, I know.

She told me.



Well, did she tell you
about the--the pregnant girl

that--that was staying here
before you, huh?

A Julie Mayer.



She didn't tell you that?



When I saw you earlier,
you were wearing

the same clothes that she was.



Tracy, look at me.

Look at me.

They killed her.



I...

I see he's awake.

Well, since we're all here,
we should probably have him sign

the adoption papers.

Huh, what do you think?

I mean, it would make things
so much easier.

Go to hell.

Yeah, I figured.

Gen, what are you
gonna do to him?



Tracy, this is
the scum of the earth.

I mean, he's everything
that's wrong with you.

- "Scum of the earth."
- You need to shut up

before I shut you up.

He is everything
that is wrong with this world.

- You don't know that.
- He has made you fear

for your life
every single second--

You don't know--
Don't listen to her.

And you protect him.

Why?

Because you think
underneath all this garbage here

- there's a decent human being?
- Stop pointing that gun!

Or, maybe, somehow,

you feel that you're responsible
for all this.



Oh, you still think
he loves you.



Trust me, he doesn't.

That's not true.

- That's not true.
- Shut up!

- That's not true.
- Stop!

- He is incapable of love.
- Listen to me, listen.

I love you, okay?

I told you from day one,
I love you.

- Wow, he's really special.
- You know that.

He is incapable of love.

All he cares about is control.
That's why he manipulates you.

- He makes you feel sorry...
- I don't manipulate her.

Yes, you do,
and guilty and afraid,

'cause that's what turns him on.

Not feelin' so turned on now,
are we?

Are we, Bobby? Hmm?



Here.



Take it.



Tracy, don't you listen to her.

Now you have the power.

What are you gonna do with it?

Baby, don't do that.

Don't listen to her.

Are you serious?



Patrick?



Don't just stand there.

We could never get away
with this.

People saw us leave
the store together.

There are cameras
in the parking lot.

That's right,
there's cameras everywhere.

We'll take care of it.

How?

You don't need to know
the details.

You are out of your mind.

You have no idea.





Baby, look at me, look at me.

Hey, please, don't.

Don't do this.

I can't, I can't.

We're in this together. Here.

Let me show you.

Stop.

Okay, just like that.

Stop pointing the gun at me!

Stop.

Come on!

You can do this.

Just squeeze the trigger.

- I can't.
- Come on, you can do it.

- I can't.
- You can.

- No, I can't.
- Just squeeze it.

- I can't.
- Just squeeze it.

- Baby, don't listen to her!
- Come on, you can do it.

- Just squeeze it!
- No, I can't!

You know what, fine.

If you're not gonna do it,
then we should just let him go.

All right? Okay.

Well, Patrick,
take his cuffs off.



- No...
- Uncuff him, Patrick.

Patrick, don't.



- Gen...
- No, he's a really good guy,

set him free.

Please don't do this,
he'll hurt the baby.

I'm not gonna hurt the baby.



Come on, now, let's go.

Car is in the driveway,
keys are inside, let's go.

Come on, this is
taking too long.

Don't touch me.



Tracy, I...



I am so sorry.

I just couldn't have him
mess up your birthing chair.



You should get some rest.

Patrick and I will take care
of the rest, okay?

What, what is it?



Oh...



I'm not gonna shoot you, silly.



You have my baby.





Don't worry, kiddo.

We're getting out of here,
I promise.





Good morning.

You hungry?

I'm fine.



Patrick, grab her a yogurt.

The sugar-free kind.



Where's Maria?

- I had to let her go.
- Why?

She was too nosy.



Thanks.



I was thinking about going into
town today to get a few things.

Do you guys need anything?

What things?

Just some personal stuff.

Patrick can grab them for you.
Right, Patrick?

I'd really rather go by myself.

I can call a car if you'd like.

Look, Tracy,

this is really not a good time

for you to leave.

Okay?

Maybe next time.

Now finish your yogurt.

I'm really full.



Come on, now.

For the sake of the baby.

I'm fine.

Eat it.





What is it?

Nothing, it's just...
a little cramping.

How long has this been going on?

Why didn't you say something
before?

It's just happened a few times,

and I didn't want
to worry you, so...

Let's go to your room.
Patrick, help her up.



Blood pressure's
still a little high.



You're not cramping
right now, are you?

No, it went away.

- Maybe I should go to a doctor.
- That's not necessary.

But wouldn't it be what's best?
I mean, just for the baby.

There's nothing a doctor can do
for the baby that I can't.



That's right, little baby.

Mommy is right here
to take care of you.



I think we'll put you
on bed rest until it's time.

Bed rest? No.

No, I can't do that, Genevieve,

that's like five months away.

You listen to me.

That is my baby
that you have inside you,

that I've been feeding
and caring for,

and I will do whatever it takes
to make sure

that she comes into this world
perfect,

including putting you
on bed rest.

If you try to get up
or run away,

I will hunt you down
to the ends of the earth

and drag you back here
and tie you to the bed.



It's okay, it's okay.

We're on the same team, we--

we both want
what is best for the baby.

Right?





Just in case you get any ideas.





- What?
- Nothing.



I'm sorry.

I need some help.

What's wrong?

It's the toilet,
it's overflowing.

The whole bathroom is flooded.

Patrick, can you go

please check it out?

Patrick will be right up.



Uh...

How's it goin' in there?

I'm done.

Looks like someone
accidentally flushed

a hand towel down the toilet.

You're all set.

- What are you doing?
- I have to ask you something.

- No, no, no, no.
- Julie Mayer.



Why'd you do it?

I don't know what you're talking
about, I didn't...



How do you know about her?

It's all over the news.

Julie, is that you?

Julie ran away.

You're lying.

Was she here?

Was she in this room?

Is that why you grabbed me
that night?

Did she jump out the window?

You can't--



Julie, no!

Did you bury her
where you buried Bobby?

Tell me the truth.

Genevieve tried to save
her and her baby.

She did everything she could.

Then why'd she jump?

I don't know.

Maybe she was trapped?

Maybe she didn't want to give
her baby to Genevieve?

- That was her only way out?
- She signed the agreement.

I signed the agreement!

Maybe she changed her mind.

I didn't--I didn't kill her.

Patrick.

I know that you're not
a bad guy,

but Genevieve, she's not right.

- You need to get out of my way.
- She's manipulating you.

- Move out of my way.
- Please, Patrick,

you're the only person
who can save me!

She's gonna kill me!

- I can't.
- Please.

- Stop, please, I just--
- Please.

- I can't!
- Please!



What happened?

Did you fix it?

Patrick?



Are you okay?

Patrick, open this door.



Come on, please open the door.

Open the door.

Patrick, please open the door.



What's going on with you?



It's okay.



It's gonna be okay.







I'm sorry, kiddo.

This is the only way out.





Tracy.

My baby.



Tracy?



I'm so sorry.



What's going on?

I tried to clean it up
so you wouldn't see, but...

the cramping,
it just got so bad,

so I came in here.

And that's when...



Come on, let's go.

The baby's fine.

The baby's gonna be fine.



I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry.







What?

My baby.

What?



I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry. I did everything
you asked me to. I...

It's nobody's fault.

This is all your fault.

You killed my baby!









Patrick?



Genny, what happened?

Are you okay?

Our baby.

She killed our baby.

She what?



Wait, what?

What are you doin'?







What did she do?

You little...



Genny, what's goin' on?



Genny?



What--what is it?
What is it?

Patrick, our baby's alive.

Our baby's alive.
I have to go find her.

No, honey,
it's probably too late.

She's--she's gone by now.

No, I have to.

- No!
- Wait, listen to me.

What are we doing? We can't--
We can't keep her trapped here.

We're going to have
to just let her go.

No! No, my baby is out there,
and I have to go find her.

- I have to go find her!
- Genny, listen to me,

you can't go out
in this condition.

I'm trying to help you.
Okay, stop, stop, stop!

Stop, stop.

I'll do it.

Okay, I'll go and find her.

Okay, go!

- Go now!
- I'm going, I'm going.





Calm down, kiddo.

We're gonna get out of here.







Let's go.

Move.





I bet you thought that trick
you played back there

was pretty clever, huh?

That is my baby
that you're carrying,

and I will die before I let you
get away with her.

This baby will never be yours.

Oh, yeah?

And how are you gonna stop me?

I already did.

What are you talking about?

You see, there was this girl.

She wasn't rich or powerful.

She was kind and caring.

But one day that girl
found out she was pregnant

and she got scared.

She didn't think
she could be a good mother,

so she decided
to give her baby up

to a wealthy family

that she met through a woman
at an adoption agency.

Tracy McCann?

This couple lived in a big,

beautiful house on the beach.

She was a nurse.

He was an investor.

This couple,

they weren't what
they appeared to be.

And when the girl changed her
mind about giving them her baby,

the woman trapped her
in the house

and threatened to kill her.



That girl tried to escape,

but she didn't make it, did she?



I met her at the clinic
the first time I found out

I was pregnant.

I was crying in the lobby.

She came over and hugged me.

A complete stranger
showed me more kindness

in that moment than more people
have showed me my entire life.



We got close, really close,

and she promised me,
when she had her baby,

she would come for me,
and we would go away,

just me, my baby, and Julie.



But then I never heard
from her again.

It's like--
it's like she vanished.



Julie was my friend.

Julie was my only friend,
and you killed her!

I had nothing to do with that.

That's--that's not true.

Julie killed herself.

No. No, I know it was you,

just like you killed Bobby

and anybody else
who gets in your way.

I killed Bobby for you

so you could be free.

What gives you the right
to take someone's life?

I can take whatever I want.

I'm rich.

Yeah?



Why don't you say that
to the police?





Oh my...

Patrick.



Put your hands up!

Where I can see 'em!



- Sir.
- Let her go!

- She has my baby.
- Sir, let her go!

You're under arrest.

What's happening?



You have the right
to remain silent.

Anything you say
can and will be held against you

in a court of law.

You have the right
to an attorney.

If you cannot afford
an attorney,

one will be provided
free of charge.

Do you understand?







Well, kiddo,

this is who you're named after.



Julie.
