You're a Libra,

aren't you, darlin'?

Yes, I'm a Libra.

Who's this?

I'm Tia.

Well, how did

you know that?

Can I please have

your first name only?

It's Emma.

Things always happen

for a reason.

Don't you agree?


Love is in the air.

I know this

doesn't make sense, but...

just wait and see, darlin'.

Hold tight.

They will return.

Have a good life, now.


I'm finished.

She's all dressed.

That woman that just called,

she knew all kinds of things about me.

What do you mean she knew

all kinds of things about you?

Just stuff.

Who called?

Who was it?

She knew Mama just died.

She said...

she's gonna come back.

That's fucking...

That's fucking crazy, Emma.


What does she mean?

She said to wait.

To hold tight.

And she'll return.


Nice shot.


I like that the smoke from

the fire doesn't bother you.


Doesn't bother me either.

Are you okay?

My grandma died.

Just today?

In there?

I'm sorry.

Let's wait.


Just a few days.

I know.

She won't know my kids.

So what's the harm?

Karen's with someone.

She looks

more and more like Mom.

This isn't like you.

Do you like school?

I'm good

in all my classes.

I'm best in history,

which is weird

'cause I don't like it.

What don't you like about it?

I don't know if all

that stuff really happened.

Well, that's what

historians are for.

Is that

what you are?

Someday, maybe.



was that?


You know what they say about souls

escaping through open windows.

Tell me when it's safe

to come back.

Look, we're gonna have

a party for it.

You're creepy.

We could all use one.

Hey, it's me.

You alone?

You wanna smoke?

No, man.

What are you doing?


What's up with the A/C?

It's cold.

Yeah, I'll turn it down.

Looking at porn?

Not true.

You okay?

How's... your mom?


I'm sorry about

the other night.

What do you mean?

I don't care.

It's just not for me.

What's not for you?

You know.

I don't.


Hey, what was here

before all the houses?


Can I use some stuff

in your shop?

What for?

To build something.


Something I've wanted

to do for a while.

- Come on, sit, sit, sit.

- Nice one, Paul.

Green and Blue.

Still green?

- It's coming, Barney.

- Shit.


This is Angela Goren.

I'm calling about my mother.

This could make

the news, sweetie.

Most likely one

of those morning shows.

But, Mom...

Where's Daddy?

He's at home in the city.

Can't make it

for a couple of days.

Will they stop the fires?

I'll be in

in a little while.


we decorate.

Are you

expecting someone?


Thankfully, she left

everything so organized.

Emma, I waited

for Karen to go to bed.

While I was sleeping?

You were gonna let them take her?

Calm down.

What the f*ck?

You didn't hear the voice.

Let me go!

What are you doing?

No! I'm not letting

them take her!

Last time, you didn't

listen to me...

about that fucked-up fianc of yours,

and look where that got you.

You haven't been

touched in a year.

Can I help you?


That's my little sister.

She called.

About your mother


No, she hasn't.

I'm sorry.

She's having a hard time.

She wakes up thinking

it's already happened.

- Is the hospice nurse here?

- That's me.

I know what they say about family members

doing it despite qualifications.

That's none of our business.

I'm sorry.

We understand.

You've never

done that to me.

Yes, I have.

Maybe 20 years ago,

when we were playing.

I'm going to town tomorrow.

And when I get back,
