When I was just a child myself, I had a child.
What are you doing?! DERMOTT GROWLS
-They were in your deleted folder.
-Dermott said he tried to call you
when the contractions started.
-What? No, he didn't.
-You're definitely staying on then?
-Yeah. Talk about divine intervention...
-That woman is my mother.
Kathleen had another child when you were born.
Is there anything else I don't know?
I think the sooner you leave, the better.
I had a scan earlier.
I can't tell Kat, obviously, but, um... It's not good news.
Get off me! You're not my da!
-You swan in here and cause havoc.
-What havoc have I caused?
-Where's Peter? What if something HAS happened?
SHE GASPS FOR BREATH
-You're listening to ZTFM.
Some breaking news for you this morning...
A whale has been spotted off the coastline of Redwater.
The whale, nicknamed "Fionn" by locals,
is thought to be the first sighting of such a large cetacean in the area
for almost 21 years.
And we want to hear from you. Have you seen Fionn?
Call us or get in touch online with your photos.
ZTFM, keeping Ireland talking.
And now, here's Out And Cover by Dogs, featuring Suzanne Parson.
I know you think I'm mad.
Have you even slept?
His body was found here, Adeen came from here.
So who's this?
Someone was on that beach when Lance died.
Or maybe it was the balsamic vinegar here.
In the library. With the candlestick.
-I mean, what do you want me to say?
-Just that I'm not going crazy.
You're not going crazy.
But you're like a dog after a bone.
SIGHS: Oh! I just...
-I just need to be busy.
-Are you not busy enough, no?
Then why didn't he call you?
When I was in labour, why didn't Dermott call you?
And why was he shutting down my computer?
-You sound just like Kieran.
-What's Kieran got to do with it?
Bernie... I can't keep having this conversation.
If any of this nonsense gets out... I mean, is that what you want?
-Then will you please... leave it?
Is your mam still in bed?
Oh, it's been a whirlwind.
With Lance, the funeral, the christening -
everything a million miles an hour.
-Some rest'll do her good.
-Some of us don't have that luxury.
-What can I do to help?
Ro, I'm asking you... What can I do?
Will you quit being the martyr and tell me, huh?
You wouldn't know where to start.
So tell me! That's all you have to do.
-I need some money put in the bank.
-Consider it done.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever.
Hello there, little lad.
Isn't he gorgeous?
You're not thinking about a change in career then?
It's not every day a priest gets to deliver a baby.
Well, it's one for the parish newsletter, that's for sure!
-I was looking at the photos last night...
-..from the christening.
-Don't think I thanked you properly.
-Don't, uh... Don't usually see you here on a weekday.
And thanks, by the way...
..for shutting down the computer that night, too.
I mean, anyone could have walked in to the front desk there.
It's actually all a bit of a blur, to me.
My memory seems to be OK.
The morning Lance died, do you remember where you were?
-I would have been here, I imagine.
Well, uh, it was a weekday, wasn't it?
So, uh... Yeah, would have been here, preparing for Mass.
And did Lance say anything to you before he died?
-Well, Lance said a lot of things, didn't he?
Something that might have been troubling him?
-We know he rode all night.
-Nothing to me, I'm afraid.
So you WERE here...that morning?
Why are you asking me all these questions, Bernie?
I just told you, I was here.
And when was the last time you saw Lance alive?
That night. At the pub. The same as everyone else.
Are you stopping for a cup of tea?
-I'm not going to pack any pants,
I'm just going to turn these ones inside out tomorrow.
Come on, darling. It's only one night and Axel reckons he's a really good contact.
Haven't we got enough on our plate with the bar?
That's the point. If he can sell us some cheap Irish whisky...
CHEAP meaning knock-off.
What you talk...? That's not knock-off.
Even with the import charges, by the time we've marked it up...
-Yeah, you're right.
It's only business, what would I know?
As long as that's all it is.
Yeah, well...there's that...
# And my fancy woman... #
Mwah. Why don't you take Tommy down to the beach?
Apparently, they've spotted some whale off the coast or something.
Yeah, maybe. Hm.
So when I get back tomorrow, we'll sit down, we'll have a chat
about what we're going to do - whether we head home...
Dermott said he needs his space,
so I can't force his hand and drive him away, can I?
You haven't spoken to him, have you?
-No. No, no, no.
Hey, Tommy, give Daddy a kiss.
Come on. Give your daddy a kiss goodbye!
-You know you want to!
-Get off! Get off!
-Look after Mummy for me, yeah?
Better get your stuff together if you want to go to that football thing.
-Football - go, go, go, go, go! Good boy.
-Call me when you get there, yeah?
-Yeah, I promise.
-I love ya.
-I love you.
Don't sign anything.
-I won't. I'll see you later.
Mam, if you're sick we should call the doctor.
SIGHING: I'm not sick, Roisin, I'm grieving.
-You'll have to go look for Peter.
-I can't go anywhere.
Anything could have happened.
Andrew can manage for a few hours. Go. Both of you.
Find him and bring him back.
What are you doing, darling?
Darling, what's the matter?
Darling... Oh, sweetheart, what's happened to you?
-You all right?
Taking after your grandfather?
-Yeah, well... Missing the gym back home.
Don't get views like this though.
No, you don't.
I need to ask you something.
-That looks painful.
-You've no idea.
I know you've been speaking to Andrew.
What about him?
That's what I was hoping you could tell me.
Andrew thinks I'm going mad.
-think I'm going mad.
Except I don't.
I saw a therapist for a while.
Back in New York, because...
That's the American way.
We tried to talk about it.
-about Mouse and what happened.
But I just couldn't.
It's like nothing would come out.
But since being back...
Don't be so hard on yourself.
-It'll be painful, so...you forget.
And then you remember.
Iris held out her hand to him.
-I heard him.
He wouldn't help his mother.
He let her go under.
He could have saved her, but he didn't, he let her die.
Do you believe me?
And then everything with Cois Dara, just...
The fire? What do you mean?
Look, Dermott asked me if he could come in with us on Cois Dara
and I said no, obviously, because, I mean, why would we?
And that night... it's burned to the ground.
I don't know what I think.
All I know is that everybody I've spoken to has said
my grandfather was fit and healthy and then one day, he's just...gone.
Just like that, just...gone.
So what changed?
Please, anywhere but here.
-We should call the police.
Because if he HAS taken the car, they'll do him for drunk driving.
Then what are we going to do?
-Where are you going?
-I think I know where he is.
-Nurse Julie Bally, please report to the...
-Coffee for you.
-Oh, that's lovely, thank you.
I bet you're in and out of these places all the time, eh?
Oh, not if I can help it.
No, I mean, the last rites and all that, you know?
Yeah, as I said, not if I can help it.
20 years ago maybe.
When people like me were still at the centre of all this.
Yeah, well, times change, eh?
The world keeps marching on and we got left behind.
Yeah, the good old days.
-I don't know about that.
-No, you're probably right.
-Kat's still a bit upset, I think.
-I'm here to support you, Alfie, I don't want to talk about that, OK?
Yeah, no, that... No, that's fine. I know.
You know, Dermott,
I really appreciate you being here with me today.
And it means a lot.
If anyone wants to be talking to Kathleen, it's you.
-Oh, do me a favour!
KNOCK AT DOOR
Yeah, I'm coming!
-How you going?
Um, listen, I was just passing
and this little one's after puking all over himself!
Would you mind if I cleaned him up real quick?
-Yeah, of course you can! Come in.
-Great, thanks a million.
Bathroom's upstairs. First door on the left.
I wouldn't say no to a cuppa, if there's one going?
They've an offer down there on beef jerky.
Three packs for the price of two.
I don't even know if I like beef jerky, but it seemed like too good an opportunity to pass up.
-So who was it?
-Does it matter?
No, it doesn't.
Not the pizza boy?
That pimply streak of piss?!
-He didn't force himself, did he?
-You promise you won't say anything?
-You're too young for secrets, Adeen.
-You said you wouldn't.
-And I won't.
But you're too clever to get mixed up in the likes of this, Adeen.
You could have told me to change my shoes!
Where are we going?
What the hell is he doing?
You'll catch your death.
Stop fussing over him, will you?
How much have you had?
-Where's the car?
You can't remember cos that's what happens when you drink.
Ah, Ro, could you cut him some slack?
You need to sober up and get to a meeting.
-Could you just go, both of you?
Jesus, Eileen, open your eyes.
Your man hasn't had a drink for... 18 years. He's an alcoholic.
But he owns a pub.
And I'm here so you can stop talking about me like I'm not.
WHISPERS: You poor thing.
I saw you today, didn't I?
At the football camp thing with, um...
Jonjo. Yeah, he loves it. Football mad, he is.
Yeah, Tommy's the same. West Ham, it is.
That's Alfie's influence.
Well, they're likely to be firm friends by now.
-Either that or sworn enemies!
You know what kids are like on the football pitch.
So listen, I...did want to ask you something off the record.
-I didn't know we were ON the record.
-We're not, it's just...
At the pub... You know, after the run? ..you spoke to Lance.
My husband saw you.
You were upset.
-Must have been all them whisky chasers he was lining up!
You didn't notice anything out of the ordinary, did you?
I'd just met him that afternoon, I wouldn't know what ordinary was.
Do you know what?
I knew SOMETHING was weird.
How do you mean "weird"?
Well, not weird, exactly.
It's just that in the pub it was the singing and poetry and shots,
and then two days later, he dropped down dead.
Do you think something happened to him?
No. Course not.
Any sugar going?
-Yeah, it's in the kitchen. Won't be a sec.
EILEEN: Is there anyone we can call?
What about a...sponsor?
It was just a slip, not a relapse.
If you don't want to get drunk, don't take the first drink.
Peter, what happened?
You know...we all have regrets.
Whatever it is, it's...
And all we can do in the end
is hope that we end up with the right regrets.
All those years sober...
I'd no idea.
Because you weren't here.
You can have too many years sober and not enough days.
One drink is too many, 20 is not enough.
If you don't want to slip... don't go to slippery places.
What is he doing?
-Poor me, poor me, POUR me another drink.
Peter, you're scaring me now.
I have platitudes as long as my arm, sweetheart,
I can keep going all day.
KEEP your side of the street clean. Halt! Hungry, angry, lonely...
-I don't know where my car is.
-Oh, don't worry about that now.
Don't worry about it?! You could have killed somebody.
Might HAVE, for all you know.
We're not going to fix anything sitting around here.
Come on. I'll take you home.
What's left of it!
Honestly, it works a treat.
-The Dummy Fairy?
-They fall for it hook, line, and sinker.
It's worked with all my kids, just try it.
I might just do that.
Oh, never ends, does it, this parenting malarkey?
Well, if you keep squeezing 'em out, no, it don't.
You know, Jonjo was coming into our bed up until last year.
He'd crawl up in the middle, we'd wake up in the morning...
There he'd be.
-So when you heading back home, do you know?
Not sure yet. Soon.
You and Dermott seem to have hit it off.
You get on well?
Suppose we do, yeah.
They were very close.
Him and Lance.
Must be hard for him... losing him like that.
It must be.
Is it something that he's talked to you about, or...?
He's never said anything, no.
Well, that seems odd. That he wouldn't.
You don't think?
Maybe it's a private matter.
Maybe you're right.
Listen, I've got to get the tea on
because I've got to pick Tommy up soon
and then I might even go down to the harbour,
see if I can spot that whale.
Nice talking to you though.
-We should do it again sometime.
-Yeah, that'd be lovely.
Nobody takes their first drink after 18 years for no reason.
I just needed to take the edge off. I missed it. That's all it was.
I don't believe you.
Why don't you put the radio on?
I don't want the radio on.
HE SOFTLY GROANS
Don't you touch me! Don't you DARE touch me.
-I'm going to walk back.
-I'm fine. I just need some air.
-I'm not letting you walk!
Let him go.
I just need the air.
You'll be grand.
You will, Adeen.
So why do I always feel so sad?
Oh, lots of reasons, I suppose.
With all this business... and you'll be missing your Double G.
And because you're a teenager. That's part of the deal, I'm afraid.
Was that why you did it?
See, you're a clever girl, Adeen.
An intelligent girl.
And that'll be part of your problem.
That's what they say, don't they... about clever people?
-They can never be happy because they're always...
-I saw my da.
You saw your da what?
-Is he gay?
-No, he's not gay.
-Why are you being so calm?
-I'm just being...
This isn't something that you can go about telling people, you know that, don't you, Adeen?
I'm too young for secrets. That's what you said.
You're not that young.
Ask me what you came to ask me.
The boy I raised for 33 years turns around and tells me,
"Actually, Da, I'm not yours. I never was."
And you knew.
-Don't drink that in here.
"My name's Peter, I'm an alcoholic."
You went to London, you watched my wife miscarry
and you scooped up another baby like it was a bag of flour.
My baby's dead.
And nobody ever told me.
YOU never told me!
-It wasn't like that.
-You went to London.
I went to London to support my niece because she needed me.
I went to London to support your wife because you were
having it off with another woman.
I didn't know Iris had lost the baby until I got there.
So don't you dare stand there and tell me that what I did was wrong.
If you'd had the good grace to keep your carnal urges in check,
your baby might still be alive today.
It was the hurt, the grief, the betrayal -
that's why Iris lost the baby.
It was your fault, Peter.
Not mine, not Iris's, not anyone else - YOU.
-You and your dirty little secret.
What I did, I did for Iris. I did it for good, for this family.
-What YOU'VE done, your wicked deeds...
-I said stop!
-People need to know the truth.
-That's exactly what they DON'T need.
-The truth here can only cause ill and harm.
-People need to know.
That you helped to kill that little girl?
That you and Roisin are responsible for Mouse's death?
Because that's the reason that Iris took the boat out that night.
You - the reason Iris drank.
You - the cause of Mouse's death.
It's all you, Peter.
You poisoned this family.
All I've ever done was try to make it right.
HE BREATHES HEAVILY
So here's what I suggest YOU do.
Pull yourself together, walk away, keep your mouth shut
and hope and pray that the truth NEVER comes out,
because if it does, Eileen will know the real reason
why her daughter died.
It has not escaped my attention
that you and Eileen have become... close lately.
We're just friends.
Does she know that?
Everything you've touched... to rack and ruin.
So now, sweep this under the rug where it belongs.
He's not my son.
That's exactly what he IS.
You raised him.
It's not just Dermott, I lost two children yesterday.
-How long did he live for?
-He didn't, it was...stillborn.
Where...? Where is he?
He would have been buried.
Taken care of.
A little sleight of hand and here's a new one.
Just like that.
And you sleep at night?
I sleep soundly.
That was my boy.
Dermott IS yours. Blood or not, he's yours.
Don't lose him now.
Hey, Dermott, do you reckon we could say a prayer?
Well, yeah, not if you don't fancy it, y'know?
-Let's pray together.
Loving Father, I entrust myself to your care this day.
Loving Father, I entrust myself to your care this day.
Guide with wisdom and skill the hands and minds
of the medical people who will minister in your name.
Guide with wisdom and skill the minds of the...
-KNOCK AT DOOR
-Sorry to interrupt.
No, it's... That's all right. So, we, uh... We good to go?
Well, we reviewed your scans this morning
at a multi-disciplinary meeting following your MRI.
-Originally, we decided to proceed with a needle biopsy...
After careful consideration,
we now believe a partial tumour resection is the best way forward.
Yeah, I know, but we agreed though, didn't we?
These increasing visions and hallucinations are,
to be blunt, highly unusual.
These escalating symptoms from mass effects are of great concern, Alfie. You understand?
Partial removal of the tumour will relieve some of the pressure.
-I'm afraid so.
What? Well, hold on a minute,
does that mean I'm not going home tomorrow?
Well, in terms of recovery,
we'll be looking at weeks rather than days, yeah.
Are you sure you've got this right, Doc?
We're all in agreement this is the best way forward, yes.
-C-Can you just give us a minute, yeah, is that OK?
-Of course, yeah.
Right, thank you.
Should I call her?
No, no, no. Um...
No, if you don't mind, if you'd go to the house
and bring her here, cos... she needs to hear it from me.
Course, yeah. What shall I say?
Don't worry. Leave it to me.
All right. Oh, the car keys. They're in my jacket pocket.
Um... Tell Kat I'm sorry, yeah?
You've no reason to be sorry.
I'll be back soon, OK?
I-I don't want to die.
But God is with you.
-Where were you yesterday?
-Uh, I wasn't feeling too good.
-Are you OK?
-You should see the other fella!
Well, you look awful.
I have a little something for the baby, I'll drop it round.
-Are you sure you're OK?
-I'm fine. You?
Just going to see Agnes.
See if she'll take him for a few hours on the weekend.
Ah, no, I wouldn't, she's not so well either.
Think she might've picked up whatever I had.
-How's he doing?
Ah, he's grand.
Listen, Lance... Did he seem OK to you? At the pub.
-Why, you should talk to Dermott.
Aye, he was the last one to see Lance alive.
He saw him that morning.
-Yeah, they were due to...
talk that morning about something or other.
Go and ask him yourself.
I saw Bernadette earlier.
I was out running...that's all.
You know what? I don't want to break up a family.
Especially not yours.
And whatever this is, it's not...
It's not worth the damage it could do.
Do you agree?
I'll head back to New York. This is...
..a nice place to visit.
But it's not my home.
Not any more.
If that's what you want to do.
Uh... Hang on.
I have to take this, so...
Yeah, go ahead...
I know I'm exhausted.
I've got baby brain, my boobs are leaking,
I can barely think straight.
But I know I'm right. BABY WAILS
It was a non-suspicious death.
Which means they weren't looking for anything suspicious.
I need to know you're hearing me.
You better see this.
I was about to call you.
-What's he doing?
-He's deleting your e-mails.
-HORN CONTINUES TO TOOT
HORN TOOTS, PHONE DIALS
PARTY ON BOAT CHATTER
Why didn't you say anything before...
-I don't have time...
-I want to know.
He was always a drinker, you know that.
Yeah, but what happened?
Well... After Iris, he just... went downhill.
Yeah, but he got out of it himself.
Yeah... He did that all by himself!
-How did you know?
Know where to find Peter.
Don't blame you. Tastes like crap.
Same as everything else here.
This is not New York, Kieran.
I got that.
Did you get the money in the bank?
I'll do it tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be too late.
Then it'll be too late.
I've been busy myself, you know.
Ro, I'll do it tomorrow. First thing.
You just going to ignore me now?
-Yeah, well, what's new, huh?
-Just go away, Padraig!
Oh, you have no idea how I would like to do just that.
Why don't you go? What's keeping you here? It's certainly not me. Go!
If you hate me so much, if you have absolutely
no respect for me at all, why didn't you leave years ago?
-Oh, I'm sorry, I... I didn't mean...
-Yes, you did.
Dermott... Are you there?
There's a whale out there! Finn, they're calling it.
-Listen, Kathleen, you've got to come with me.
-Where did you get that?
What did you want to talk to me about?
-That was my mother's shawl, that...
-That was Iris's.
-Oh, I didn't know. Sorry, I was cold.
-No, it's fine.
-Well, here you are.
-No, it's fine, I told you.
Dermott, you need to pick up.
Bernie, look. Down there.
Come on. Let's go.
DOOR LOCKS CLICK
It's just that, me and Bernie was sitting in the garden...
-Yeah. Well, she started acting really weird.
Like, asking me loads of questions and that.
-About Lance... And you.
Listen, uh... Why don't we go and see that whale?
-I... I-I can't, I've...
-Put this on cos it's going to be cold out there, right?
-And we can go out on Peter's rig. Come on.
-Come on, let's go.
-Dermott, I'm going to get me trousers wet!
Why don't we just get some food and watch it from up there?
Look, you're either coming or you're not, OK?
Who is it? Who keeps calling?
No-one. Let's go.
Dermott, what are you doing?
Why don't we go back and talk to Bernie?
-All right. Cheers, mate.
Are we all set?
No, I'm still waiting.
How much wiggle room have we got, Doc?
Little, I'm afraid. We don't want to lose our slot.
No, I know, but there's, um...
There's-There's no-one about at the moment.
-Is there someone else we can phone?
It's up to you, Alfie.
Your sister's in the shower, so I want to talk to you.
You need to sit down.
-I'm really tired, Mam, can we just...?
-I had Peter here this afternoon and he's been drinking.
Then you know how much danger you're in.
What Peter does or doesn't do has nothing to do with me.
-I'm afraid it does, my girl.
How could you put that on me?
Oh, don't play the innocent with me, Roisin,
I'm too long in the tooth for it.
Peter won't say anything.
With the drink in him, that man is capable of anything.
If Eileen finds out the reason Iris took the boat out that night...
If she finds out why her daughter died...
-What do you want me to do about it?
You are going to help me...
..send Eileen back to the United States.
She's only staying here because of Cois Dara and that stupid
cookery school, so we'll make it...go away.
I can't handle this.
You'll handle it, that's exactly what you'll do...
I'm not exiling my sister, Mam!
Why would I do that? Why would YOU want to do that?
Because he's coming for us.
Is this to do with what happened to Lance?
Did you do something?
Dermott, what did you do?
Look at me, Dermott!
SHE GASPS FOR BREATH
Hold on! Hold on, it's me!
WARNING TONE BLARES
-We might have a problem here.
-Do you need me to stop?
No carotid pulse.
We need to start compressions.
Mammy! Wake up! Mammy!
Patient's asystolic. Check potassium levels, please.
# She's a rich and rare land
# Oh, she's a warm and bold land
# Oh, she's a true and old land
# This native land of mine. #
