Onto today's thrill ride from A DISH BEST KILLED, and this one's a shocker.
In which we discover that D-movie starlet/femme fatale Haven Crayce is about to double-cross and frame her murderous, adulterous lesbian flame Jett Targo ... with someone's who's idenity will shock you.
INT. CRAYCE HOUSEBOAT - GALLEY - MORNING
Haven’s at the bar. Mixing champagne and OJ in a pitcher.
Silly. It’s never too early for a MIMOSA.
(turns, to someone off-camera)
We have to celebrate.
MALE VOICE (O.C.)
The king is dead. Long live the queen.
Haven picks up the drinks, walks over to --
seated on the couch. Splayed out like he owns the joint.
(takes a drink, smiles)
Thank you, my love.
(pats the couch)
Come sit next to me, my little firecracker.
Haven sits next to him. Sips her drink.
Who you calling a firecracker?
I can’t believe it. We’re almost done.
When’s the reading of the will?
Eight-hundred thousand smackeroos.
Here’s to that cabin up in Big Bear.
They CLINK. Sip.
I know we talked about Big Bear, but I was thinking --
Whoah. That could be dangerous.
Shut up. Listen to me.
I think it might be better if we went to Mexico.
You know, one of those little fishing towns on the coast,
like in That Killing Feeling.
But I don’t speak Spanish --
OUTSIDE ON THE DECK
Jett stands near the open window, shade down, listening.
IN THE GALLEY
Haven gets up. Goes to the bar, fixes another drink.
I just think it would be -- safer. The cops couldn’t touch us.
(finishes his drink)
Tell you what. We’ll think about it.
And what about Ms. Targo?
Or should I say MR. Targo --
Nola’s body. I find out where she’s stashed it --
and then you tip off Detective Seely.
You’re an evil genius, baby.
But you know that.
Takes one to know one.
I gotta ask you something.
Didn’t you like it -- at least a little bit --
when that buff, young specimen went down on you?
What the fuck?
Well, they say only a woman knows what another woman wants --
Haven DOWNS her cocktail. Starts fixing another.
Don’t be ridiculous.
It’s okay, baby. I find it -- kind of a turn-on.
If things were different, I might just wanna -- join in.
She takes a sip. Lights a smoke. Crosses over to him.
You think she was my first?
That’s what all you guys want. To join in.
Trimmer stares. Be careful here.
Hey, now -- I was just kidding, baby doll.
Just tryin’ to get a rise out of you.
Let’s not fight.
You started it.
He gets up. Puts his arms around her.
(touches her chin)
You forgive me, baby?
PUSH IN ON Haven. Faint smile. Eyes off somewhere else.
Forgive and forget is for suckers.
OUTSIDE ON THE DECK
Jett blinks back tears. Turns. Quietly walks away. Head down
