I’m afraid I’ve got something to

tell you darling. I’ve a new date

for tonight. He’s young and he’s

seriously hot.

She holds DANIEL’S hand. DANIEL blushes. Loves it but then

steps back, slightly scared of his father’s reaction.


Well I wouldn’t put it past him.

Now come on I’m bloody starving.


They walk the pine strewn path down to two boats waiting by

the water. The cicadas chirrup in the afternoon heat.

ROPER and DANIEL lead the way. Father and son.

CORKORAN and JED behind. She snuggles up to him, breasts

against his side, as you only can do to a gay man.


Corky. You couldn’t get me some

more of those pills could you?


Mother’s little helper?


Be a love.


You don’t want love, you want a

walking pharmacy. Are you all right



Just can’t sleep. It’s the heat.

He smiles. Trusty man. No further questions asked.


I might get drunk tonight. Would

Roper mind?


I think he’d love it darling.

Night Manager ep 2 final


Two motor boats speed across the bay towards the waiting

shoreline. Remote, but with one remarkable restaurant

awaiting them on the cliff above the sand.

ROPER drives one boat himself. SANDY LANGBOURNE drives the

other boat, that speeds alongside, they mimic a kind of race,

ROPER loving the competition. CORKY in his boat along with

the two SUITS. SANDY’s wife and kids and their NANNY in the

other boat plus five other FRIENDS.

The sun is sinking over the horizon as JED lets her hair fly

behind her in the breeze and DANIEL smiles as the boat rides

the crests of the waves.

ROPER looks at JED’s body. She notices, bends her body in the

wind, loves his look, needs it right now. It makes her know

she exists.
