Everyone in town always

took me for an outsider.

I didn't care.

The only thing that

mattered was her.

She was my garden of Eden.

And God knows how beautiful

it was until that night.

You know, no one is born evil.

The devil himself

was a fallen angel.

But sometimes when

you go through hell...

the only way out is to

walk deeper into the fire.

Are you horny?

Yeah, I'm getting warmer.

Oh. Fine.



I'm gonna love you for

the rest of my life.

Just love me for

the rest of mine.

Oh, here he is.


Hey, Ig, what does it feel

like to get away with murder?

Do you want to comment on the fire

at the lab in Tacoma last night?

Have you heard that the

police have a new witness?

You should ask God to save your

soul for what you did to her!

I should ask the Devil to punish

whoever the f*ck killed her.

Hi, this is Lee Tourneau,

leave a message.

Hi, Lee, please can you

meet me at my parents' house

in like half an hour?

I really need to talk to you.

And start picking up

your phone, man. Come on.

Are you proud of me, Mom?

I'm so famous people

follow me everywhere I go.

Come inside, sweetie.

You just can't

talk to those reporters.

They'll take whatever you say

and just twist it around.

But if I don't talk

to them, it looks like

I have something

to hide. Right?

And how's Lee

working out for you?

I mean, you still think

he's up to the job?

Yes. No, he's keeping me

out of jail at least for the

time being... and that's got

to be some kind of triumph.

All right, look,

I know he's an old friend of

yours... but you don't have to

settle for a public defender.

I've got the money. I will hire

you the best lawyer in Seattle.

Dad, every other lawyer we

talked to wanted me to take a

plea. Lee is the only one who

believes I'm innocent.

Just don't talk to any

more reporters, please.

And don't admit anything.

I don't have anything

to admit to, Dad.

Look, honey, we don't

care what happened.

You're our son.

That's all that matters.

Oh, sit back down, Ig.

No, if you think for a second...

that I might have killed her,

then why are you protecting me?

Because if I did anything to

her, then I'm a fucking monster.


I got it, Mom.

Thanks, Ter.

Ig, look, I...

I don't have to go back

on the road next week

if you don't want me to.

Man, you gotta earn a living.

I'll sort things out.

Except I need

you to stay, Terry.

The whole family's gotta put

up a united front for Ig.

- Hey, buddy.

- How's it going?

- Lee.

- Hey.


if you want some food,

we have a lot of

leftovers from lunch.

Oh, I grabbed something on the

way over, Mrs. P. Thank you.

How you guys doing?

Yeah, Lee, what happened

at the lab in Tacoma?

One of the reporters this

morning told me it burned down.

Yeah, all the samples from

Merrin's body was destroyed.

It's gonna be tough to recover

any blood or DNA at this point.

But that's a fucking disaster

for us, right? I mean,

that means there's no evidence

that anyone else killed her.

- It's not ideal...

- F*ck.

...but I think it's too soon

to panic at this point.

And who is this new witness?

What is that?

I'm trying to figure

that out today and I'm

also getting your confession

to the police thrown out.

Yeah, good. You know I never

confessed to them. They're just

looking for any way to put me

away for the rest of my life.

Whoa, whoa, whoa,

whoa, whoa, it's okay.

Lee can fix anything, right?

We'll see about that.

But you know, you don't

have to convince me.

Ig, I believe you.

If you don't think I'm

capable of murder...
