"Can you come with me a second? I've got a call in to Adult Protective Services. They're gonna want to take her in for aggravated neglect and endangerment..." She introduces herself and the cop to the incensed Caroline, Caroline who left Renata to die, who came on Tuesdays and sometimes Thursday. Adding fraud to the list, Jackie leaves them there: The cop, and Caroline. Who is disgusted, and horrified, and will not be getting paid anymore. And Renata will be cared for. And gun guy is free.
Jackie calls a man on the phone: "Hi, it's me. Yeah, look, I'm sorry about all this. I'm... I'm tired. And my back's all fucked up and I'm sorry. You want to talk?" He does. Very much so. She's got a lot to answer for. Her face lights up when he says yes. And they meet at the theatre, and head inside. She tells him he needs to toughen up. She means: Even when she goes crazy on him. She means: Don't attempt suicide quite so often. She means: She cares for him. She means: She's not sending Renata back to Caroline, and she's not sending gun guy with the cops, because both of them need to be free. Two problems, one elegant solution.
Eddie dances up to Jackie under the marquee lights, in a suede jacket, lit up with relief, and they head inside to see Alice In Wonderland. Fiona said she'd love it.
