NYPD Blue (1993–2005): Season 12, Episode 12 - I Love My Wives, But Oh You Kid - full transcript

PREVIOUSLY ON "NYPD BLUE"...

MOST OF WHAT I DO
WITH CLIENTS

IS SHOW THEM APARTMENTS.

IF THEY LIKE THEM,
THEY BUY.

I HAVE TO BELIEVE YOU'RE
A BIG PART OF THAT ‐‐

THE WAY YOU LOOK,
THE WAY YOU DRESS.

SPEAKING PERSONALLY,
I WOULD PUT A LOT OF FAITH

IN WHAT YOU HAVE
TO SAY ABOUT THINGS.

AT SOME POINT,
I MAY BE IN THE MARKET MYSELF.

IF YOU FIND
SOMETHING INTERESTING,

MAYBE YOU COULD SHOW IT
TO ME.



I'D BE HAPPY TO.

I'M SORRY, SIR.
YOUR CARD HAS BEEN DECLINED.

WHY DON'T I PUT THIS
ON MY CARD?

HER NAME'S FAITH CHANDLER,

ACCORDING TO HER
DRIVER'S LICENSE.

32 YEARS OLD.

ADDRESS LISTED
AS CONTINENTAL AVENUE

IN FOREST HILLS.

THERE'S A CONDOM
UNDER THE PILLOW.

YEAH, THE APARTMENT'S LEASED
TO THIS CLAUDIA WEINTRAUB

WHO CALLED IT IN.

IS THAT HER?
YEAH.

I THOUGHT
SHE LOOKED FAMILIAR.

SHE'S A BIG‐TIME MADAM.



WHAT ELSE IS IN THERE?

A PARKING TICKET
WITH A MONEY ORDER,

PROBABLY GONNA DROP IT IN THE
MAILBOX WHEN SHE GOT A STAMP.

WE GOT MINTS,
LIPSTICK,

TAMPON, ASPIRIN,
KEYS...

THIS CARD.

SERENITY PRAYER.

"GOD GRANT ME
THE SERENITY

"TO ACCEPT THE THINGS
I CANNOT CHANGE,

"THE COURAGE TO CHANGE
THE THINGS I CAN

AND THE WISDOM
TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE."

THAT'S AN AA THING, RIGHT?

YEAH.

IT DOESN'T ALWAYS WORK.

MISS WEINTRAUB?
TALK TO YOU A SEC?

YEAH, SURE.

YOU SET THIS UP?

EVEN THOUGH I KNOW
YOU HAVE ME IN YOUR DOSSIERS,

I'M OUT OF THAT WORLD
COMPLETELY.

WHY IS SHE
IN YOUR APARTMENT?

SHE NEEDED A PLACE TO STAY.
I SAID SHE COULD USE IT.

SHE WAS FREELANCING.
RIGHT.

ANY IDEA WHO WITH?
NOPE.

WE'RE GONNA WANT
TO SEE YOUR BOOK.

I DON'T HAVE A BOOK.

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DEALING
WITH, A DISAPPROVING RELATIVE?

WE'LL LOCK YOUR ASS UP.
WE'LL GO THROUGH YOUR APARTMENT.

WE'LL FIND A DOZEN DIFFERENT
REASONS TO PROSECUTE.

NOW, WHAT'S IT GONNA BE?

I WASN'T LYING WHEN I SAID
I WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD.

I MET A TERRIFIC GUY,

KNOWS NOTHING
ABOUT ANY OF THIS,

AND I WOULD REALLY LOVE
TO KEEP IT THAT WAY.

THE ONLY WAY YOU GOT
ANY CHANCE OF THAT,

GIVE US WHO YOU THINK
SHE MIGHT HAVE BEEN WITH.

THERE WAS THIS, UH, ONE GUY
WHO WAS CRAZY ABOUT HER.

USED TO TAKE HER ON TRIPS,
BUY HER THINGS.

MAYBE IT WAS HIM.

WHAT'S HIS NAME?
BOB CAVANAUGH.

YOU'LL GIVE US
HIS NUMBER.

YOU WON'T LET HIM KNOW
IT WAS ME?

IF YOU GOT THIS NEW GUY,
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

YOU DON'T WANT TO LOSE
A CUSTOMER,

JUST IN CASE IT DOESN'T
WORK OUT WITH MY GUY.

CAN I HELP YOU?

I'M HERE TO SEE
DETECTIVE MEDAVOY.

HEY!

BAD TIME?

UH, NOT AT ALL.

YOU HAD MENTIONED BEING
INTERESTED IN AN APARTMENT,

AND I FOUND ONE THAT I THOUGHT
MIGHT WORK FOR YOU.

IT'S ON THIRD AVENUE
AND 16th STREET.

LOTS OF LIGHT.

IT'S NOT HUGE,

BUT I FIGURED IF IT'S JUST YOU,
IT MIGHT WORK.

IT'S A LEASE
WITH AN OPTION TO BUY.

I KNOW THE SELLER
IS MOTIVATED,

SO I THOUGHT THE SOONER
YOU SAW IT, THE BETTER.

BY SOON, YOU MEAN
THIS WEEK, THIS MONTH?

[ LAUGHS ] WITH APARTMENTS,
GREG, SOON MEANS TODAY.

OH, THEN I'LL SEE IT TODAY.

CAN YOU COME AT LUNCH?

YES.

MEET ME...IN FRONT
OF THE BUILDING, 12:00.

WE GOT A REPORT
OF A HOMICIDE,

455 GREAT JONES STREET,
THIRD FLOOR.

ORTIZ, YOU AND MURPHY ARE UP.

I JUST SOLD A FLOOR‐THROUGH
ON THAT BLOCK.

THANK GOD
IT ALREADY CLOSED.

SEE YA.

YOU OWN THE BUILDING,
MISS KUNITZ?

SINCE 1961.

DID YOU KNOW
TRACY LEWELLYN?

ANOTHER YOUNG PERSON CAME
TO NEW YORK TO BE AN ARTIST.

VERY NICE,
VERY PRETTY,

ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT IT TAKES
TO SURVIVE ON HER OWN.

DID SHE HAVE A JOB?

NOT THAT I KNEW OF.

HOW'D SHE PAY RENT?

SHE'D BRING IT
TO ME IN CASH.

ANY IDEA WHERE
SHE WAS GETTING IT?

I KNEW EXACTLY WHERE.

AT FIRST,
SHE WAS SECRETIVE ABOUT IT.

WE WOULD SIT
AND HAVE TEA, THOUGH,

AND GRADUALLY, SHE COULDN'T
HOLD BACK FROM LETTING ME KNOW

THAT SHE WAS SEEING
THIS WELL‐KNOWN DESIGNER ‐‐

INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER,
WHATEVER THAT IS.

DID SHE TELL YOU HIS NAME?

HOWE MATHESON ‐‐
MARRIED, CHILDREN,

AND ACCORDING TO HER,
EVERYTHING WAS FINE.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP,
MISS KUNITZ.

SO, WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?

THERE WAS AN ACCIDENT
ON THE GRAND CENTRAL PARKWAY.

SOMEONE GOT A PARTIAL PLATE
THAT CAME UP

AS POSSIBLY
BELONGING TO YOU.

I WASN'T ANYWHERE NEAR

THE GRAND CENTRAL PARKWAY
LAST NIGHT.

I WAS AT DINNER
WITH A FRIEND.

YEAH, WHERE WAS THAT?
RESTAURANT CALLED WEST.

WHO WAS THE FRIEND?

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE, GUYS?

JUST STANDARD QUESTIONS.

I DON'T THINK SO.

YOU KNOW SOMEONE NAMED
FAITH CHANDLER?

WHAT HAPPENED TO HER?
WHAT MAKES YOU THINK
SOMETHING HAPPENED?

I WANT TO KNOW
WHAT HAPPENED TO HER.

SHE WAS KILLED.

WHAT WAS YOUR RELATIONSHIP
WITH HER, BOB?

[ SIGHS ]

IT STARTED OUT, SHE WAS
JUST A HOOKER, YOU KNOW?

"HERE'S $1,000, HONEY.
JUMP ROPE FOR ME."

THAT CHANGED, THOUGH.
I STARTED TO CARE ABOUT HER.

I STARTED WANTING
TO HAVE HER AROUND ME.

I TOOK HER TO PARIS.
I TOOK HER TO TOKYO.

I LEFT MY WIFE.

SHE WAS STILL
JUST A HOOKER, THOUGH.

YOU THINK THAT PUT ME OFF HER?
I LIKED HER BEING A HOOKER.

YOU LIKED IT
ANDYOU DIDN'T LIKE IT.

YEAH, MAYBE THE SEX GOT
A LITTLE ROUGH,

NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

YOU GOT YOUR HANDS
AROUND HER THROAT.

I HAVEN'T SEEN THIS GIRL,

IT'LL BE...
TWO WEEKS THIS FRIDAY.

I KNOW THIS BECAUSE I HAVE MADE
AN EFFORT TO NOT CALL HER,

AND I'VE BEEN
KEEPING TRACK OF IT.

FACT IS, I COULD HAVE STOPPED
HER FROM BEING A HOOKER.

I COULDN'T STOP HER
FROM BEING AN ALCOHOLIC.

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

WE'D LIKE TO SPEAK
TO HOWE MATHESON.

HOWE'S NOT HERE.
I'M PAIGE MATHESON, HIS WIFE.

CAN YOU TELL US
WHEN HE'LL BE BACK?

CAN YOU TELL ME
WHAT IT'S ABOUT?

YOUR HUSBAND'S NAME CAME UP
DURING A ROUTINE INVESTIGATION.

WE JUST NEED TO ASK HIM
A COUPLE QUESTIONS.

ARE YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND
PARTNERS?

THAT WOULD BE GIVING MYSELF
ENTIRELY TOO MUCH CREDIT.

I'M JUST
HIS OFFICE MANAGER.

WHAT KIND OF WORK DOES
YOUR HUSBAND DO?

IF YOU'VE EVER USED
ANY OF THE HIGH‐END LAPTOPS

OR PLASMA
TELEVISION SCREENS

OR SMALL PERSONAL
READING LIGHTS,

YOU'VE EXPERIENCED SOME
OF HOWE'S DESIGNS.

HE'S AN INCREDIBLY
GIFTED VISIONARY

WHEN IT COMES
TO THE USE OF MATERIALS,

MINIATURIZATIONS, ERGONOMICS ‐‐
ALL OF IT.

PAIGE?
HOWE'S ON THE PHONE.

SPEAK OF THE DEVIL.

THANK YOU.

HI, SWEETIE.
WHERE ARE YOU?

THERE ARE TWO DETECTIVES HERE
TO TALK TO YOU.

I KNOW IT SOUNDS
VERY OMINOUS.

BUT THEY SEEM VERY NICE,
NOT TO MENTION PRETTY.

[ LAUGHS ]

HE'S JUST LEAVING
HIS MEETING NOW.

WILL YOU WAIT FOR HIM, OR DO YOU
WANT HIM TO MEET YOU SOMEPLACE?

IF HE COULD MEET US AT THE
15th PRECINCT, THAT'D BE GREAT.

111 EAST 5th STREET.

IF YOU COULD MEET THEM
AT 111 EAST 5th STREET?

YEAH, I WANT TO HEAR
ALL ABOUT IT.

BYE, SWEETIE.

HE CAN BE THERE
IN HALF AN HOUR.

GREAT.

NO FLIRTING.

THANKS FOR COMING IN,
MR. MATHESON.

SURE.

WE WANTED TO KNOW
WHERE YOU WERE LAST NIGHT.

I WAS AT HOME.

WHICH IS WHERE?
WESTON, CONNECTICUT.

ANYONE THERE WITH YOU?

MY WIFE, MY TWO KIDS.

MAY I ASK WHAT IT IS
I'M SUSPECTED OF?

YOU'RE NOT BEING SUSPECTED
OF ANYTHING.

YOUR NAME CAME UP IN THE COURSE
OF A LANDLORD/TENANT DISPUTE.

WHAT KIND OF DISPUTE?

DO YOU KNOW A GIRL NAMED
TRACY LEWELLYN?
UH‐HUH.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME
YOU SAW HER?

A FEW DAYS AGO.

WHAT'S YOUR RELATIONSHIP
WITH HER?

HOW IS THIS RELEVANT
TO A LANDLORD/TENANT DISPUTE?

ARE YOU PAYING HER RENT?

ASSUME THAT I AM.

THAT'S HOW IT'S RELEVANT.

ARE YOU
ROMANTICALLY INVOLVED?

I'M NOT GOING TO
ANSWER THAT.

WHAT KIND OF DISPUTE IS
SHE HAVING WITH HER LANDLADY?

TRACY LEWELLYN WAS FOUND DEAD
THIS MORNING.

OH, MY GOD.

WE'RE LOOKING INTO
ANY POSSIBLE MOTIVE

SOMEONE MIGHT HAVE HAD
FOR KILLING HER.

CAN YOU HELP US
WITH THAT, MR. MATHESON?

HOW COULD ANYBODY KILL HER?

WERE YOU HAVING
AN AFFAIR WITH HER?

FOR HOW LONG?

ABOUT A YEAR.

DOES YOUR WIFE KNOW?
NO.

ANYONE IN YOUR OFFICE?

NO.

COULD IT HAVE BEEN
A ROBBERY?

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT.

WHOEVER KILLED HER WAS SOMEONE
SHE LET INTO THE LOFT.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

[ SNIFFS ]

[ SIGHS ]

OBVIOUSLY, THE IMPORTANT THING
IS TO FIND OUT WHO DID THIS.

BUT IS IT...

NECESSARY FOR MY WIFE TO FIND
OUT ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIP?

AS LONG AS YOU TELL US
THE TRUTH,

AND IT HAS NO DIRECT BEARING
ON THE INVESTIGATION, NO.

[ SIGHS ]

HEY, WE GOT A DUMP
ON THE D. O. A.'S PHONE.

THERE'S A TON OF CALLS MADE
FROM A NUMBER

THAT TRACED BACK TO A RESIDENCE
IN WEST VILLAGE.

WHO LIVES THERE?
AN ANNABELLE MATHESON.

MATHESON?

YEAH,
561 ST. LUKE'S PLACE.

HEY, YOU GOT
A MINUTE?

YEAH, WHAT'S UP?

LAST WEEK,
I WENT TO LUNCH WITH BRIDGET,

AND I TOLD HER
I WAS INTERESTED

IN BUYING AN APARTMENT
IN MANHATTAN.

SHE FOUND ONE
SHE WANTS TO SHOW ME.

SO WHAT'S WRONG
WITH THAT?

I CAN'T AFFORD
AN APARTMENT IN MANHATTAN.

I CAN'T AFFORD
AN APARTMENT IN QUEENS.

WHAT'D YOU
SAY IT FOR?

I DIDN'T WANT
TO SEEM LIKE A SLOB TO HER.

I LIKE HER.

UH‐HUH?

I MEAN, I THINK
I REALLY LIKE HER.

FROM WHAT I CAN TELL,
SHE REALLY LIKES YOU.

ONLY SHE'S AROUND PEOPLE
WITH MONEY,

PEOPLE WHO BUY CO‐OPS

IN BUILDINGS WITH DOORMEN
WHO WEAR UNIFORMS.

SHE KNOWS
THAT'S NOT YOU.

SHE WENT TO THE TROUBLE
TO FIND AN APARTMENT.

SHE DOESN'T KNOW
IT'S NOT ME.

[ SIGHS ]

GREG...

I THINK YOU SHOULD TRUST IN THE
FACT THAT HER INTEREST IN YOU

HAS NOTHING TO DO
WITH WHAT YOU CAN BUY.

SHE LIKES YOU.
SHE LIKES BEING AROUND YOU.

TO A POINT.

BUT SHE SEES THAT
I WAS JUST PUTTING ON AIRS

AND THAT I WAS
A COMPLETE AND UTTER FRAUD,

I DON'T THINK
SHE'S GONNA LIKE ME SO MUCH.

TELL HER YOU CAN'T AFFORD IT,
THEN TAKE HER OUT TO LUNCH.

I CAN'T EVEN AFFORD
TO DO THAT,

NOT AT THE PLACES
SHE'S USED TO EATING AT.

TRUST ME.

IF SHE LIKES YOU,
SHE LIKES YOU.

[ SIGHS ]

WELL, LOOKS LIKE ANNABELLE'S
GOT THE TOP FLOOR.

NOT BAD.

BAD BOY, HOWE.

NOT YOUR TYPICAL BAD BOY,
THOUGH.

[ HORN HONKS ]

MR. MATHESON!

WHO WAS THAT WOMAN?

MY WIFE.

GET IN THE CAR.
GET IN.

SEE, HOWE, THE THING ABOUT BEING
UNTRUTHFUL ABOUT ONE THING...

IS THAT
IT MAKES US THINK

YOU'RE BEING UNTRUTHFUL
ABOUT MORE THAN ONE THING.

I WASN'T BEING
UNTRUTHFUL.

I WASN'T TELLING YOU
MY WHOLE LIFE STORY,

BUT I WASN'T BEING
UNTRUTHFUL.

WHO WERE THOSE KIDS?

MY SON ETHAN,
MY DAUGHTER MIRANDA.

AND YOUR WIFE, ANNABELLE,
IS THEIR MOTHER?

YES.

WHAT ABOUT THE WOMAN
AT YOUR OFFICE?

THAT'S MY OTHER WIFE,
PAIGE.

ANY KIDS WITH HER?

THREE DAUGHTERS.

WOW, YOU'RE
QUITE AN OPERATOR.

I NEVER THOUGHT OF MYSELF
AS AN OPERATOR.

WITH TWO WIVES
AND TWO SEPARATE FAMILIES,

YOU GET A GIRLFRIEND AND
DON'T THINK YOU'RE AN OPERATOR?

ANNABELLE WAS WORKING
FOR A CLIENT.

WE SPENT TIME TOGETHER
OVER THE COURSE OF THE PROJECT.

OUR RELATIONSHIP
BECAME SEXUAL.

THERE WERE CHILDREN.

I FELT THAT I HAD TO PROVIDE
A STABLE HOME,

SO I MARRIED HER.

THEN TRACY CAME ALONG.

TRACY WAS AN INTERN ONE SUMMER.
SHE WAS A STUDENT AT RSDI.

I TOLD HER WHEN SHE GRADUATED
TO GET IN TOUCH.

THREE YEARS LATER,
THERE SHE WAS.

WONDERFUL DRAFTSMAN.

TALENTED GIRL.
TALENTED.

WE STARTED
SPENDING TIME TOGETHER.

THAT ALSO TURNED SEXUAL.

IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
ONE TOO MANY, HOWE.

YOU MAKE TIME FOR THINGS
THAT ARE IMPORTANT.

TWO WIVES AND A GIRLFRIEND?
HOW DOES THAT WORK?

I LEAVE WORK
WITH PAIGE.

WE DRIVE TO OUR HOME
IN CONNECTICUT.

ONE DAUGHTER'S
AT COLLEGE.

WE HAVE DINNER
WITH THE OTHER TWO.

I GO TO BED
AROUND 9:30,

WAKE UP AT 1:00,
GO INTO THE CITY.

PAIGE ASSUMES
THAT I'M GOING TO WORK.

ANNABELLE ASSUMES
THAT I'M COMING HOME FROM WORK.

I GET INTO BED
WITH HER,

WAKE UP AT 8:00,
HAVE BREAKFAST WITH THE KIDS,

THEN I GO
TO THE OFFICE.

WHERE DOES
THAT LEAVE TRACY?

LUNCHES.

WE'RE GONNA NEED YOU TO STICK
AROUND AWHILE, HOWE.

WHY?

'CAUSE THIS IS
A HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION.

YOU'RE ALSO LOOKING
AT BEING CHARGED WITH BIGAMY.

ANNABELLE AND I AREN'T
LEGALLY MARRIED.

IT WAS IMPORTANT TO HER
THAT WE BE MARRIED,

SO WE HAD A CEREMONY,
BUT THE GUY WHO PERFORMED IT

WAS ONLY PRETENDING
TO BE A MINISTER.

UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES,
IT WAS THE BEST I COULD DO.

SO, YOU'RE LEGALLY MARRIED
TO PAIGE.

ANNABELLE THINKS
YOU'RE LEGALLY MARRIED TO HER.

BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM,
YOU HAVE FIVE KIDS,

AND YOU'RE CHEATING
ON BOTH OF THEM WITH TRACY.

I KNOW.
IT...SOUNDS COMPLICATED.

A LITTLE.

YEAH.

WHAT DOES THIS GUY HAVE,
SOME VOODOO SEXUAL TECHNIQUE

THAT MAKES ALL THESE WOMEN
FALL FOR HIM?

HEY,
CRIME SCENE CALLED.

THEY GOT TIED UP
IN A HOMICIDE.

THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO GET
TO YOURS BEFORE LATE AFTERNOON.

LET'S GO BACK THERE
OURSELVES.

WILL YOU LET
THE BOSS KNOW?

SURE.

WHO DO I TALK TO
ABOUT FAITH CHANDLER?

I'M SIPOWICZ.
WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

THERE'S SOMETHING OF FAITH'S I
THINK YOU MIGHT WANT TO LOOK AT.

ALL RIGHT,
COME ON BACK HERE.

HOW'D YOU KNOW HER?

I WAS HER AA SPONSOR.

IN ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS,
PEOPLE HAVE A SPONSOR

TO HELP THEM GET THROUGH
THE PROGRAM, THE 12 STEPS.

ONE OF THEM INVOLVES WRITING
A LIST OF THE PEOPLE YOU HURT

AND HOW
YOU HURT THEM.

THIS IS FAITH'S LIST.
MAYBE IT'LL HELP.

HOW MUCH TIME
DID SHE HAVE?

SHE GOT HER 30‐DAY CHIP
ON SUNDAY.

ANY BOYFRIENDS
THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?

IT WAS A LONG TIME
SINCE SHE HAD A BOYFRIEND.

SHE DID START SEEING A GUY
SHE MET AT THE MEETING,

ALTHOUGH SHE PROMISED
SHE WOULD BREAK IT OFF.

WHO'S THE GUY?

I DON'T FEEL I HAVE THE RIGHT
TO VIOLATE ANYONE'S ANONYMITY.

ALL RIGHT,
LISTEN TO ME.

I HAVE EIGHT YEARS.

I TAKE ANONYMITY
VERY SERIOUSLY.

BUT THIS IS
A HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION,

AND ANYONE THIS GIRL
WAS INVOLVED WITH,

WE'RE GONNA FIND OUT
WHO THEY ARE,

AND WE'RE GONNA TALK
TO THEM.

THERE'S A 5:00 MEETING
WHERE I SEE HIM.

SECOND FLOOR,
McBURNEY "Y".

HAD SHE BEEN DRINKING?

WHAT DIFFERENCE
DOES IT MAKE?

IF SHE STARTED DRINKING
OR USING,

IT WOULD HAVE MADE HER
VULNERABLE TO A LOT OF THINGS.

THERE ARE SOME INDICATIONS
THAT SHE HAD BEEN DRINKING.

THERE WAS ALSO
A MONEY ORDER MADE OUT

TO PAY
FOR A PARKING TICKET.

I TOLD HER
SHE SHOULD PAY HER DEBTS.

SHE WAS TRYING.

WHEN I FIRST CAME IN,
I WAS LIVING IN MY CAR.

THERE WAS A WARRANT OUT
FOR MY ARREST.

ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS CLOSE
MY EYES AND DIE IN MY SLEEP.

[ SIGHS ]

NOW I GOT 18 YEARS
OF SOBRIETY,

A HUSBAND, A KID,
AN APARTMENT, A JOB.

WE BOTH HAVE A LOT
TO BE GRATEFUL FOR.

[ Voice breaking ]
THE ONES WHO DON'T MAKE IT,

THEY BREAK YOUR HEART.

IT'S HIM.

STILL WET.

SINCE HE WASN'T SPENDING
THE NIGHT,

SHE MUST HAVE KNOWN
SHE WAS IN SECOND POSITION.

NOT TO MENTION THIRD.

SHE STILL
WASN'T CALLING IT QUITS.

CALL IT QUITS?

SHE WAS PAINTING
PICTURES OF HIM.

MAYBE IT WAS EASIER TO KILL HER
THAN BLOW HER OFF.

THERE'S A MESSAGE.

Woman:
Hi, this is Dr. Mara's office

confirming your appointment
for an ultrasound

Monday, December 13th,
at 10:00 A. M.

If there's any problem
keeping this appointment,

give us a call at 555‐0199.

Thank you.

IF IT'S AN OB/GYN,
WE OUGHT TO PAY THEM A VISIT.

WHAT CAN I DO
FOR YOU?

I'M DETECTIVE ORTIZ.
THIS IS DETECTIVE MURPHY.

LET'S SEE SOME I. D.

YOU HAVE A PATIENT HERE
NAMED TRACY LEWELLYN.

LAST SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT WAS
A WEEK AGO MONDAY, 10:00 A. M.

PATIENT RECORDS
ARE CONFIDENTIAL.

YOU'RE GONNA NEED
A COURT ORDER.

TRACY LEWELLYN WAS MURDERED.
WE CAN GET A COURT ORDER.

WE CAN CLOSE YOU DOWN WHILE
WE COMB THROUGH YOUR RECORDS.

OR YOU COULD ANSWER
A FEW QUESTIONS.

WHAT'S THE OTHER
QUESTIONS?

WAS TRACY LEWELLYN
PREGNANT?

IN HER FIRST
TRIMESTER.

WAS SHE HERE
BY HERSELF?

A GUY WAS WITH HER,
OLDER, NICE LOOKING.

WHITE,
KIND OF GRAYISH HAIR.

I THINK HE HAD
SOME KIND OF BEARD.

WOULD YOU KNOW HIM
IF YOU SAW HIM AGAIN?
PROBABLY.

NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE
PAY IN CASH.

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

SOMETHING HAPPENED WITH HER
YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW ABOUT.

SHE AND HER GUY GO
TO MEET WITH THE DOCTOR,

AND WHILE THEY'RE
BACK THERE,

ANOTHER GUY COMES IN,
WHO'S ALSO A DETECTIVE ‐‐

SO HE SAYS ‐‐
SHOWS ME A BADGE.

I GO TO WRITE DOWN
HIS INFORMATION,

SAME AS I DID
WITH YOU,

AND THAT'S WHEN HE ADMITS
THAT HE'S A PRIVATE DETECTIVE.

HE WANTED TO KNOW
WAS TRACY LEWELLYN PREGNANT?

WOULD YOU HAVE WHAT YOU WROTE
DOWN ABOUT HIM HANDY?

NAME'S NICK MASTRIANO.

THIS IS THE P.I. LICENSE NUMBER
ON HIS CARD.

THANKS.

CRIME SCENE CALLED EARLIER.

TECHNICIAN SAW THE LIPSTICK
ON YOUR D. O. A.,

SAID IT LOOKED LIKE ONE
IN THE 9th PRECINCT.

WHAT AGE?

MID‐30s, WHITE,
JUST LIKE YOURS.

I CALLED THE 9th SQUAD AND HAD
THE CASE FOLDER SENT OVER HERE.

ANY OTHER
COMMON DENOMINATORS?

HIGH BLOOD ALCOHOL
ON THEIRS.

YOU SAID THERE'D BEEN SIGNS
OF DRINKING WITH YOURS.

YOURS WAS IN AA.

THEIRS HAD JUST GOTTEN
OUT OF REHAB.

IT'S NOT A LOCK IT'S A PATTERN,
BUT IT'S A POSSIBILITY.

I'LL CHECK WITH HOMICIDE,

SEE IF THERE'S ANY OTHER
OPEN CASES WE'RE LOOKING AT.

WHERE WAS YOUR HUSBAND
LAST NIGHT, ANNABELLE?

HE WAS WITH ME.

THE WHOLE NIGHT?

HE WORKS UNTIL VERY LATE
MOST OF THE TIME.

LIKE, HOW LATE?

1:00, 2:00
IN THE MORNING.

HE GETS HIS BEST WORK DONE
WHEN IT'S QUIET.

SO, HE GOT HOME
AT WHAT TIME?

IT WAS
A QUARTER TO 3:00.

CAN I ASK
WHAT THIS IS ABOUT?

IS THE NAME TRACY LEWELLYN
FAMILIAR TO YOU?

WE HAVE INFORMATION
THAT LEADS US TO BELIEVE

YOUR HUSBAND HAD
A RELATIONSHIP WITH HER.

WHAT KIND
OF RELATIONSHIP?

AN AFFAIR.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT.

HE'S ADMITTED TO IT.

IS SHE SOMEBODY
HE WORKS WITH?

AT ONE TIME,
SHE DID, YEAH.

IT'S MY FAULT.

HOW IS IT YOUR FAULT?

IF HE FELT ISOLATED
FROM ME,

IF I WASN'T GIVING HIM THE KIND
OF CONNECTEDNESS THAT HE NEEDS,

HE'S GONNA FIND IT
SOMEWHERE ELSE.

HIS CONNECTEDNESS TO TRACY LED
TO HER GETTING PREGNANT.

WHEN IS SHE DUE?

TRACY WAS KILLED LAST NIGHT.

AND YOU THINK
HOWE KILLED HER?

IT'S A DISTINCT
POSSIBILITY.

IT'S NOT
A POSSIBILITY.

WHAT IF SHE WAS HOLDING HIM UP
FOR MONEY?

IT WOULDN'T MATTER.
HOWE WOULD GET THE MONEY.

WHAT IF SHE WANTED HIM
TO MARRY HER?

HE WOULD HAVE TOLD HER
HE WAS MARRIED.

MAYBE SHE WANTED HIM
TO GET A DIVORCE.

YOU ASKED ME
WHERE HOWE WAS LAST NIGHT.

I TOLD YOU,
HE WAS WITH ME.

I KNOW YOU'RE DOING
WHAT YOU HAVE TO BE DOING,

BUT YOU DON'T KNOW HIM.

THIS IS NOT A MAN
WHO KILLS WOMEN.

THIS IS A MAN
WHO LOVES THEM.

All:
GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY

TO ACCEPT THE THINGS
I CANNOT CHANGE,

THE COURAGE TO CHANGE
THE THINGS I CAN,

AND THE WISDOM
TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

AMEN.

KEEP COMING BACK.
IT WORKS IF YOU WORK IT.

WHICH ONE IS HE?

WITH THE GLASSES.

HEY...

PAUL, IS IT?

YEAH.
WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

I'M ANDY.

HEY, ANDY.

IT'S YOUR FIRST TIME
AT THIS MEETING?

YEAH, YEAH, IT IS,
ACTUALLY, YEAH.

YOU KNOW A GIRL NAMED FAITH
FROM THIS MEETING?

FAITH C.?
YEAH, FAITH C.

WHEN'S THE LAST TIME
YOU SAW HER?

I DON'T KNOW,
A FEW DAYS AGO, MAYBE.

I HEARD YOU MIGHT HAVE BEEN
DATING HER IS WHY I'M ASKING,

SOMETHING OF A 13th STEP,
IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

THAT'S A LITTLE
PERSONAL, ANDY.

WERE YOU SEEING HER?

I DON'T THINK I WANT
TO CONTINUE THIS CONVERSATION.

WHERE WERE YOU
LAST NIGHT?

WHAT IS THIS?

FAITH C. WAS IN AN ACCIDENT
LAST NIGHT, PAUL.

I'M LOOKING TO SEE WHO MIGHT
KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THAT.

I WENT TO A 6:00 MEETING
ON EAST 55th STREET,

AND THEN I WENT TO DINNER WITH
A BUNCH OF US FROM THE MEETING,

AND THEN I WENT BACK
TO MY APARTMENT.

I'LL NEED
NAMES AND NUMBERS.

YOU ACT LIKE YOU'RE ONE OF US
TO GATHER INFORMATION?

YEAH, I ACT
LIKE I'M ONE OF YOU.

THESE ROOMS ARE SUPPOSED
TO BE SAFE PLACES FOR PEOPLE.

YOU LISTEN TO ME,
ASSHOLE.

THESE ROOMS SAVED MY LIFE.
I AM ONE OF YOU.

I TAKE IT PERSONALLY
WHEN SOMEONE COMES IN LOOKING

TO CUT THE WEAK ONES
FROM THE HERD

BECAUSE IT'S EASY
TO SCORE THAT WAY.

AM I GETTING WARM
AT ALL?

ANY IDEA WHY I MIGHT BE TALKING
TO YOU, PAUL?

APARTMENTS DON'T COME AVAILABLE
IN THIS BUILDING ALL THAT OFTEN,

WHICH IS WHY I THOUGHT
YOU SHOULD SEE IT.

IT'S NICE.

IT'S A GREAT
LOCATION.

YOU'RE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE
OF UNION SQUARE, THE VILLAGE.

YOU COULD WALK
TO WORK.

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
ON THE LONG ISLAND EXPRESSWAY,

I‐I‐I CAN'T EVEN
IMAGINE THAT.

[ LAUGHS ]
IMAGINE IT.

THE BATHROOM LOOKS LIKE
THEY REDID IT.

THEY DID,
ALL NEW FIXTURES.

THAT ‐‐ THAT'S
A GAS STOVE, RIGHT?

IT'S A GAS STOVE WITH A MATCHING
STAINLESS REFRIGERATOR.

THE CELLAR HAS ‐‐

I'M SORRY, LET'S STOP.
I CAN'T AFFORD THIS PLACE.

I‐I'M WALKING
AROUND HERE,

LETTING YOU DO ALL THIS WORK,
WASTING YOUR TIME,

AND FOR WHAT ‐‐
I CAN'T AFFORD IT.

I CAN'T AFFORD TO RENT IT.
I CAN'T AFFORD TO BUY IT.

THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE LET ME
ON THE ELEVATOR.

GREG...IT'S OKAY.

YOU KNOW, I‐I‐I KNOW
YOU'RE GONNA TELL ME

THAT IT DOESN'T MATTER

BECAUSE THAT'S
THE POLITE THING TO SAY.

BUT IT WEIGHS ON ME
THAT I KEEP COMING UP SHORT

WHEN IT COMES
TO FINANCES.

WELL, HAVE YOU TRIED TO DO
ANYTHING ABOUT THAT?

[ SIGHS ]

I TOOK A JOB AS A BOUNCER
IN A BAR,

WHICH YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO DO
IF YOU'RE A COP.

MY BOSS FOUND OUT.

IT ENDED UP
COSTING ME MONEY.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD THINK
ABOUT SELLING REAL ESTATE.

ME? WHY?

'CAUSE YOU'D BE GOOD
AT IT.

YOU'RE CRAZY.

IN MY JOB, YOU HAVE TO GET
PEOPLE TO TRUST YOU.

YOU HAVE TO EMPATHIZE
WITH THEM.

YOU HAVE TO MAKE THEM FEEL
LIKE YOU'RE LISTENING TO THEM.

ANYTHING LIKE YOUR JOB?

YEAH, WHEN YOU PUT IT
LIKE THAT.

MAYBE YOU
SHOULD TRY IT.

HOW WOULD I DO THAT?

I'M MEETING A COUPLE TONIGHT
TO TRY TO CLOSE A SALE.

MEET ME THERE.

WE'LL PRETEND WE'RE A TEAM
AND SEE HOW YOU DO.

YOU SERIOUS?
YES, I AM.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US

ABOUT TRACY LEWELLYN
AND HOWE MATHESON?

I'M A LICENSED
PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR.

ABSENT A SUBPOENA,
I'M NOT AT LIBERTY

TO REVEAL
CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.

YOU INTERESTED IN KEEPING
THAT LICENSE?

DON'T TRY
TO INTIMIDATE ME.

IMPERSONATING A POLICE OFFICER
IS ENOUGH TO PULL IT.

WHO SAID I WAS IMPERSONATING
A POLICE OFFICER?

REST ASSURED, SOMEONE DID,
AND IF WE ASKED THEM TO,

THEY'LL SWEAR OUT
AN AFFIDAVIT TO THAT EFFECT.

I WAS HIRED TO SURVEIL
HOWE MATHESON

TO SEE IF HE HAD
A GIRLFRIEND.

WHO BY?

WHO ELSE?
HIS WIFE.

WHAT'S HER NAME?
PAIGE MATHESON.

WHAT DID PAIGE DO WHEN YOU TOLD
HER TRACY WAS PREGNANT?

SHE DIDN'T TAKE IT
TOO WELL.

WHICH MEANS WHAT?

SHE OFFERED ME $10,000...
TO HAVE TRACY KILLED.

WHAT'D YOU TELL HER?

THAT I WASN'T
IN THAT BUSINESS.

I TOLD HER
HOWEVER BAD IT WAS,

SHE'D ONLY MAKE HER LIFE
AND HER KIDS' LIFE WORSE.

HOW'D SHE RESPOND?

SHE NODDED,
THANKED ME, AND LEFT.

I'M AFRAID TO ASK ‐‐

TRACY'S DEAD.

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH,

I THOUGHT
I TALKED HER OUT OF IT.

ANYTHING MORE MATCH UP
IN THE TWO CASES?

OURS WROTE ABOUT SOME GUY
IN HER AA GROUP

THAT SHE FELT BAD
FOR HAVING LED ON.

THE ONE IN THE 9th SQUAD
GOT IN TROUBLE FOR DOING
THE SAME THING IN REHAB.

THERE'S
A THIRD CASE ‐‐

FEMALE, WHITE, 37 YEARS OLD,

FOUND STRANGLED IN A FLOPHOUSE
OFF 8th AVENUE.

SIMILAR THING
WITH THE LIPSTICK.

SHE HAD A MEDALLION THAT SAID,
"ONE DAY AT A TIME."

THAT SIGNIFICANT?
IT'S AN AA EXPRESSION.

YOU SOUND LIKE YOU KNOW
WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
I DO.

THE BOROUGH GONNA PUT TOGETHER
A TASK FORCE?

WE'LL USE TEAMS, FEMALE
UNDERCOVER WITH A MALE BACKUP.

WE'LL ALSO SET UP
VIDEO SURVEILLANCE OUTSIDE.

IF WE FOCUS ON THE VILLAGE,
LOWER EAST SIDE, AND SoHo,

THERE'S 35 MEETINGS A DAY.

SINCE I GO TO MEETINGS
ANYWAYS,

I MIGHT AS WELL BE BACKUP
ON ONE OF THEM.

IF I GOTTA GO ON MY OWN TIME,
THAT'S ALL RIGHT.

YOU DON'T.

I GOT THE BOROUGH
TO AUTHORIZE OVERTIME.

YOU WANT TO BE INVOLVED,
AS WELL?
SURE.

I'M BRIEFING
THE TASK FORCE AT 6:00.

YOU'RE BACK.

WE NEED YOU TO TAKE A RIDE
WITH US, PAIGE.

THERE'S A COUPLE THINGS WE NEED
TO ASK YOU ABOUT.

I CAN'T LEAVE HERE
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY.

IT'S KIND OF
IMPORTANT.
THIS IS ALSO
IMPORTANT.

WE'LL GET YOU BACK
AS SOON AS WE CAN.

WE HAVE A PROTOTYPE DUE
ON ONE PROJECT,

DRAWINGS DUE
ON ANOTHER,

AND CLIENTS ARE FLYING IN
FROM STOCKHOLM ON FRIDAY.

PAIGE, WE NEED
TO DO THIS.

OKAY, I'M JUST GONNA GET
MY JACKET AND MY BAG.

TAKE US THROUGH
WHAT YOU DID LAST NIGHT.

HOWE AND I LEFT
THE CITY TOGETHER.

WE PICKED UP HIS CAR

AT THE TRAIN STATION
IN WESTPORT.

WE DROVE HOME, HAD DINNER
WITH OUR DAUGHTERS,

AND THAT'S IT.

WHAT ABOUT
AFTER DINNER?

OUR DAUGHTERS WENT OUT,
WHICH ALLOWED US TO BE INTIMATE

SINCE WE'VE NEVER SUBSCRIBED
TO HAVING A LOCKED BEDROOM DOOR.

HOWE GOT UP AT HIS USUAL TIME
AND LEFT.

WHAT'S HIS USUAL TIME?
1:00 A. M.

HE DOES HIS BEST WORK
WHEN IT'S QUIET.

WHAT TIME
DO YOU GET UP?
7:00.

I GOT THE GIRLS OFF TO SCHOOL,
AND THEN I DROVE INTO THE CITY

AND WENT TO WORK.

DO YOU KNOW A GIRL NAMED
TRACY LEWELLYN?

SURE...

SHE WAS AN INTERN
WHO WORKED FOR US.

DID YOU THINK YOUR HUSBAND
WAS HAVING AN AFFAIR?

WHY ARE YOU
ASKING ME THAT?

YOU HIRED A PRIVATE DETECTIVE
NAMED NICK MASTRIANO.

YES, I DID.
WHAT DID HE TELL YOU?

THAT HOWE HAD TAKEN TRACY
TO SEE A DOCTOR.

WHAT DOCTOR?
AN OBSTETRICIAN.

AND WHAT DID THAT
TELL YOU?

THAT SHE WAS PREGNANT.

THAT HOWE
HAD GOTTEN HER PREGNANT.
NOT NECESSARILY.

TRACY COULD HAVE ASKED HOWE
TO TAKE HER TO THE DOCTOR

SIMPLY BECAUSE
THAT'S WHO HOWE IS.

PAIGE, WE'VE SPOKEN
TO NICK MASTRIANO.

AND WHAT DID HE TELL YOU?

THAT YOU OFFERED HIM $10,000
TO HAVE TRACY KILLED.

AND HE TOOK THAT
SERIOUSLY?
I THINK HE DID.

ALL THAT WAS
WAS ME BEING FUNNY.

A FEEBLE ATTEMPT, MAYBE,
BUT THAT'S ALL IT WAS.

YOU KNEW YOUR HUSBAND
WAS HAVING AN AFFAIR, PAIGE.

YES, I DID.

IT MUST HAVE HURT.

EVERY NIGHT AFTER HE'D LEAVE
FOR THE CITY,

I'D CRY MYSELF
BACK TO SLEEP.

DID YOU EVER
CONFRONT HIM?

IT WAS ME
WHO CAUSED IT TO HAPPEN,

WHY SHOULD
I CONFRONT HIM?

HOW DID YOU
CAUSE IT TO HAPPEN?

I GOT MY PRIORITIES
MIXED UP.

I WAS SO WRAPPED UP
IN THE BUSINESS

THAT I FORGOT
ABOUT BEING A WIFE.

I FORGOT THAT AT HOME,

HE DIDN'T NEED
AN EFFICIENT MANAGER.

AT HOME, HE NEEDED
THE ALLURE OF A WOMAN,

THE SOFTNESS, THE PLIANCY.

THAT'S WHAT
HE WASN'T GETTING.

DID YOU BLAME TRACY
AT ALL?

TRACY WAS AROUND HOWE,

AND SHE RESPONDED TO HIM
THE WAY THAT ANY WOMAN WOULD.

SHE WAS
AROUND THE TWO OF US.

SHE SAW THE WAY
THAT HE LOOKED AT ME.

SHE SENSED THE PASSION
THAT WE HAD FOR EACH OTHER.

WE DIDN'T LEAVE IT IN THE
BEDROOM WHEN WE WENT TO WORK.

IT SURROUNDED US, CAME OFF US
LIKE A MIST OFF A POND.

SHE SAW IT.

SHE WANTED IT.

WHO COULD BLAME HER?

[ KNOCK ON DOOR ]

HEY, CAN I TALK
TO YOU GUYS A SECOND?

HEY, WE GOT THE E‐ZPASS RECORDS
ON THIS WIFE'S CAR.

SHE WENT OVER
THE TRIBOROUGH BRIDGE

INTO THE CITY
AT 3:15 IN THE MORNING.

YOU KNOW THAT E‐ZPASS YOU KEEP
ON THE WINDSHIELD OF YOUR CAR?

YEAH.

IT CREATES A RECORD
OF THE DATE, TIME, AND LOCATION

FOR EVERY TOLL
IT'S USED FOR.

YOU WENT TO THE CITY LAST NIGHT
AT A QUARTER AFTER 3:00.

I WAS GOING
TO CHECK UP ON HIM.

SO IF WE CHECK WITH
THE NIGHT MAN AT THAT BUILDING,

HE'LL CONFIRM
YOU SHOWED UP THERE?

I CHANGED MY MIND.

HE DOESN'T DESERVE
THE KIND OF WIFE

WHO SPIES ON HIM
OVER A LITTLE AFFAIR.

AFFAIRS HAPPEN.
THEY HAPPEN ALL THE TIME.

YOUR HUSBAND HAS
ANOTHER WIFE, PAIGE.

THAT'S RIDICULOUS.

HE HAS A WIFE
NAMED ANNABELLE

WHO HE HAS
TWO CHILDREN WITH.

WHEN HE LEAVES YOU

AT 1:00 IN THE MORNING,
HE GOES TO HER.

I'M AWARE OF THE FACT
THAT YOU USE DECEPTION

TO GET PEOPLE
TO TELL YOU THINGS.

WE SAW HIM WITH THEM.

WE QUESTIONED HIM.
HE ADMITTED IT.

I MUST LOOK PRETTY PATHETIC
RIGHT ABOUT NOW.

YOU LOOK LIKE A WOMAN
WHO'S BEEN DECEIVED.

TELL US WHAT HAPPENED
WHEN YOU WENT TO SEE TRACY.

I THOUGHT I COULD CONVINCE HER
NOT TO HAVE THE CHILD.

SHE WAS YOUNG.

SHE WOULD HAVE OTHER
OPPORTUNITIES WITH OTHER MEN.

SHE COULD HAVE A CHILD
WITH A FATHER WHO WAS AVAILABLE,

WHO WASN'T TAKEN.

BUT SHE DIDN'T WANT THAT.

SHE WANTED THIS CHILD.
SHE WANTED HOWE.

WAS THERE A STRUGGLE?

NO.

GET YOURSELF
A GOOD LAWYER, PAIGE.

MAYBE THEY CAN MAKE A CASE
FOR TEMPORARY INSANITY.

WHEN COULD I SEE
MY HUSBAND?

IS HOWE
YOUR HUSBAND?

YES, HE IS.

YOU ‐‐

WHOA!

EASY, EASY.
JUST CALM DOWN.

OKAY, OKAY.
OKAY, OKAY.

OKAY.

[ EXHALES SHARPLY ]

COULD YOU LOCK ME UP
NOW, PLEASE?

WHAT WAS THAT ABOUT?

THERE'S SOME THINGS YOU NEED
TO KNOW, ANNABELLE.

IT'S PROBABLY BEST
YOU HEAR THEM FROM US.

PLEASE DON'T TELL ME
HOWE'S BEING ARRESTED.

HOWE'S NOT BEING ARRESTED.
HE'S BEING RELEASED.

OH, THANK GOD.

HOWE HAS ANOTHER WIFE,
ANNABELLE,

ANOTHER WIFE
AND THREE OTHER CHILDREN.

THIS IS IN ADDITION
TO TRACY?

YEAH.

HIS OTHER WIFE IS THE WOMAN
WHO JUST WENT AFTER YOU OUTSIDE.

SHE KILLED TRACY.

WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN
TO THE THREE CHILDREN?

THEY'RE GONNA BE
WITHOUT THEIR MOTHER.

YOU SHOULD ALSO KNOW
THAT YOU'RE NOT LEGALLY MARRIED.

OF COURSE WE ARE.

WE HAD A WEDDING.

HOWE FOOLED YOU.

THE CEREMONY
WAS A SHAM.

IF YOU WANT TO TAKE A MINUTE
AND GET YOURSELF TOGETHER,

WE'LL TELL HOWE
YOU COULDN'T WAIT.

HAVE YOU FOUND OUT
WHO MURDERED TRACY?

YEAH, HOWE.

WE FOUND OUT
THAT PAIGE KILLED HER.

IT JUST KEEPS
GETTING WORSE.

KIND OF
A VOLATILE MIX ‐‐

A PREGNANT GIRLFRIEND
AND TWO DEVOTED WIVES.

[ EXHALES SHARPLY ]
DOES ANNABELLE KNOW?

YEAH, SHE KNOWS.

HOW LONG DID YOU THINK
YOU COULD KEEP ALL THIS GOING?

THEY WERE ALL SO HAPPY.
I JUST NEVER WANTED IT TO END.

IT'S ENDED NOW.

IS ANNABELLE HERE?

SHE HAD TO GET BACK
TO YOUR KIDS.

[ FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING ]

THERE'S SO MUCH
I NEED TO TELL YOU.

SHH...

It's all right.

Come on.

I LOVE THE AREA.

Bridget:
GRAMERCY IS GREAT.

I WORRY ABOUT THE HOOKER TRADE
OVER ON LEXINGTON.

THAT'S BEEN PRETTY MUCH
CLEANED UP.

I DON'T THINK SO.

TO BE SURE, I HAVE A FRIEND
WHO'S A DETECTIVE I CAN ASK.

IT'S A GREAT BUILDING.

IT'S A CANDELA
BUILDING,

WHICH MEANS
THE 12‐FOOT CEILINGS,

THE CROWN MOLDINGS,
THE GALLERY.

IT FEELS OLD.
IT IS OLD.

I TOLD YOU NORMAN
WOULDN'T GO FOR IT.

HALLIE,
I'M NOT RULING IT OUT.
IT'S OKAY.

I'M JUST GONNA TAKE ONE
LAST LOOK AT THE MASTER BEDROOM,

THEN WE'LL GO.

NOW I'M THE BAD GUY,
RIGHT?

MR. REESE,
I‐I‐I'VE ONLY JUST MET YOU,

SO I WON'T PRESUME TO TELL YOU
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO HERE,

BUT...ONE THING I'VE FOUND
IN MY LIFE

IS THAT VIS‐A‐VIS,
THE PERSON I LIVE WITH,

IF THEY'RE NOT HAPPY,
I'M NOT HAPPY.

THAT DOES GO BOTH WAYS.

WELL, WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS
LIKE WHERE YOU LIVE

AND WHAT
THE PLACE LOOKS LIKE,

MY EXPERIENCE IS
THAT MAKING A WOMAN HAPPY,

WHEN I'VE BEEN ABLE
TO DO THAT...

THAT'S SOMETHING
I'VE NEVER REGRETTED.

LET'S GO.

WE'LL TAKE IT.

YOU DON'T HAVE
TO DO THAT.
I KNOW I DON'T.

I WANT IT.
REALLY?

TELL THE SELLER THAT WE'LL WRITE
UP AN OFFER AND HAVE IT

OVER TO THEM
BY NOON TOMORROW.

THANK YOU, BABY.
THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

YOU...JUST MADE YOURSELF
IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF $17,000.

GET OUT OF HERE.

2.5% OF
THE SALE PRICE,

LESS OVERHEAD,
SPLIT 50/50.

I'M NOT GONNA TAKE MONEY
OUT OF YOUR POCKET

'CAUSE I HAPPENED
TO SHOW UP.

YOU CLOSED THE DEAL.

IT WAS YOUR DEAL.
YOU'RE TAKING
THAT MONEY.

NO, I'M NOT.

THIS WAS FUN,
BUT IT WAS A FLUKE.

I MEAN, IF I STARTED DOING THIS
FOR REAL, IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT.

WHAT ABOUT DOING IT
FOR REAL?

I DON'T KNOW,
BRIDGET.

MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST HAVE
A DRINK AND TALK ABOUT THAT.

YEAH.

MEANTIME, SEE IF YOU CAN'T CLOSE
ANOTHER DEAL.

WE'RE PUTTING YOU
INTO A ROTATION

OF AA MEETINGS
IN LOWER MANHATTAN.

THE OBJECT IS TO DRAW A GUY OUT
AND HAVE HIM APPROACH ONE OF YOU

THE SAME WAY HE APPROACHED
HIS VICTIMS.

FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND,

THAT MEANS RAISING YOUR HAND
AND ASKING TO SPEAK.

DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ
HAS SOME SUGGESTIONS

AS TO WHAT
YOU MIGHT SAY.

UH, THE CHANCES ARE THAT
WE'RE DEALING WITH SOMEBODY WHO,

FOR WHATEVER REASON,
IS TURNED ON BY WEAKNESS.

WE'RE GUESSING
THAT HE APPROACHES HIS VICTIMS

AFTER A MEETING,
INVITES THEM OUT FOR COFFEE,

AND THEN FINDS A WAY
OF ENTICING THEM TO DRINK.

ONCE HE GETS THEM LOADED,
HE KILLS THEM.

THE VICTIM HAS TO SEEM
VULNERABLE TO BEING ENTICED.

THAT MEANS DESCRIBING INCIDENTS
WHERE YOU WERE OUT OF CONTROL,

OR MAYBE
YOU DID SOMETHING

'CAUSE YOU
COULDN'T HELP YOURSELF.

HOW MUCH DETAIL ARE WE EXPECTED
TO PROVIDE?

AS MUCH AS YOU'RE
COMFORTABLE WITH.

SO WHAT WE SAY IN THERE,
WE'RE MAKING IT UP, RIGHT?

ENTIRELY UP TO YOU.

THE MAIN THING IS
YOU MAKE IT SOUND REAL.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

GOOD LUCK.

[ CLEARS THROAT ]

SIPOWICZ...

I HOPE I DIDN'T VIOLATE YOUR
PRIVACY BY CALLING ON YOU.

YOU DIDN'T.

Man: ANYBODY ELSE?

IN THE GREEN.

HI, I'M LAURA.
I'M AN ALCOHOLIC.

I'M GLAD
TO BE HERE TONIGHT.

I'VE BEEN HAVING
A PRETTY TOUGH TIME OF IT.

I KNOW THERE'S A MILLION REASONS
WHY AS BAD AS I FEEL NOW...

DRINKING OR USING
IS ONLY GONNA MAKE IT WORSE.

I KNOW THAT IN MY HEAD,
BUT, UH...

I DON'T KNOW IT IN MY HEART.

ALL I KNOW IS IN MY HEART,
I'M HURTING.

THERE'S A GUY
I FELL IN LOVE WITH ‐‐

MARRIED, FIVE KIDS.

HE LOVED HIS WIFE.
HE LOVED HIS KIDS.

AND I GOT HIM TO DO
WHAT I WANTED HIM TO DO.

I GOT HIM TO BE WITH ME.

AND NOW I'M BY MYSELF,

AND I'M ASHAMED OF MYSELF,

AND I'M THINKING,
"WHO CARES IF LAURA HAS 30 DAYS?

WHO CARES WHAT LAURA HAS?"

Ortiz: THERE'S THIS GUY
WHO'S UNAVAILABLE TO ME,

AND IT DREDGED UP
ALL THE FEELINGS OF REJECTION

THAT I LIVED WITH
MY WHOLE LIFE ‐‐

THE FATHER
WHO LEAVES HIS KIDS,

THE MOTHER WHO'S THERE
BUT ISN'T THERE,

AND ALL I THOUGHT WAS
HOW MUCH I WANTED A DRINK.

[ EXHALES SHARPLY ]

I'M COMING UP ON 30 DAYS,

AND I DON'T KNOW
IF I'M GONNA MAKE IT.

IF THE WORLD LOOKED SCARY
WHEN I WAS DRINKING...

IT LOOKS A THOUSAND TIMES
SCARIER NOW.

IT MIGHT BE TOO SCARY FOR ME
TO KEEP GOING LIKE THIS.

I MEAN...

NOT EVERYBODY
GETS SOBER, RIGHT?

NOT EVERYBODY MAKES IT.

THE WAY I'VE BEEN THINKING
THE LAST FEW DAYS...

...I MIGHT BE ONE
OF THE ONES WHO DON'T.
