Hill babbles about beds and Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway and, to quote Apu, I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DON'T SHUT UP! We see Diane and McManus exchange an ambiguous look. Cut to Shirley, who's making tea in her cell when she sees Diane in the mirror and says a friendly hello. Diane asks if she needs something, and Shirley says that she needs a friend. Shirley, you obviously haven't been to our boards. Diane says it won't be her. Shirley: "Of course. I'm a convicted murderer; you're not." I love the ambiguity of that line -- while it's possible Shirley's just making an innocent observation, it's just as likely that she's heard about Diane killing Ross and is making a very pointed comment here. Diane walks right up to the bars and asks if Shirley sleeps at night, and upon hearing an affirmative, asks how that's possible, given what she did. Shirley calmly tells Diane that she tells people that her daughter's death was an accident, but it wasn't. "It was what had to happen. It was what had to be. And so I sleep. I sleep good." She puts her hand on Diane's, and Diane doesn't pull away, and now I think it's quite clear that Shirley does know, and is offering Diane a kind of comfort. Excellent scene. Diane leaves, and another hack brings Shirley lunch. She warmly thanks him. Cut to her picking up her sandwich to find a note underneath. She opens it to see it reads, "I LOVE YOU." How did Djb get access to her lunch tray? She holds the note to her heart, then, with a smile, writes back, "I LOVE YOU TOO XOXO." Aw. Murderers in love! The note gets delivered to Adebisi, who smiles, kisses it, and puts in under his hat for safekeeping. Move over, Bonnie and Clyde. In fact, why not pull out all the stops and make Natural Born Killers 2 with these two? I'm putting ten bucks aside for when it happens.
