Susan pulls up to Neverland and a walking muscle of a guard in full jacket and tie trots down to block her entry. She tells him that she's looking for Kendra Taylor. "I'm sorry, but you're going to have to leave," he says. Unfortunately, the guard doesn't seem to understand that this is Susan? Who has driven some distance? The very Susan who cannot imagine a world where all does not bend to accommodate her? Perhaps you may have heard of her? Guard: "Please, back in the car." Susan: "Look, um [she checks his name tag], Bob? Let me try to explain." Bob: "In the car." Susan: "See, the thing is, this is maybe my last chance to find out if I can be with the man I love." Bob: "Ma'am..." Susan: "And Bob [she puts her hands on his shoulders, which he doesn't seem to take all that well], I can't begin to tell you how much that means to me. So I'm going to walk up to that house. And you're going to let me. And you know why? Because behind that badge, and that just big 'you could crush me like a fly' chest, there's a heart. A heart that believes in love."
Cut to Susan getting slammed face-down on the hood of her car. Ha ha! Bob is smiling as he folds her arms behind her back. "Just get in the damn car," he says. "It's not my fault you don't have love in your life," Susan whimpers. Kendra arrives on the scene and says, "Susan?" Susan, from her spot on the hood, gives a little wave. "Hi Kendra!"
Next we see Susan, Noah, and Kendra sitting around a table on the palatial porch. Mike's file is sitting open in front of them. "I just can't help thinking," Susan tells them, "that there's more to the story." Kendra tries to soothe her with a "no, no," but Noah cuts her off: "Unfortunately, you've got the whole story right here." But! Mike's lawyer pleaded self-defense...? "Delfino sold black tar heroin to my daughter. He killed the cop that tried to bust him. He got convicted, and did his time." While Noah rattles this off, Kendra stands behind him, looking frustrated. "Dad --" she says. "She deserves to hear the truth," he says, "however awful." Eyes brimming with tears, Susan gets up and leaves. "What the hell was that?" Kendra asks Noah. "If she knew the truth," Noah says, "she'd go running back to him and might talk him out of doing his job. I can't risk that. I just don't have the time." Man, dying people are so selfish! But as Susan gets into her car at the bottom of the endless driveway, Kendra jumps in. "Quick," she says, "drive around the corner. We need to talk."
