Tess is waiting in the wings of the play, Lexy is still walking and walking, Sam is pouring herself a whisky and Sadie is smoking in the street. What will become of our four heroines?
Lexy arrives at Sam’s door.
Sam: I thought you were out.
Lexy: It doesn’t matter.
Lee & Sarah: Oooooh.
The play has ended. As the cast clap for each of the actors at the curtain call, the very loudest cheer is reserved for our Tess. The audience love her and she looks glowingly happy. Her moment has finally arrived. Dressing up as an orange can and auditioning for shit face cream ads is all a distant memory.
Sam is telling Lexy about the happenings of the day. She tells her that Ryder was right and she should have gone home, but Lexy reassures her that it wasn’t her fault. Sam tells her that she’s always had good instincts about things, could always tell when a suspect was lying and she always listened to her instincts.
Sam: Somehow deep down I always knew about Cat.
Lexy: You have to stop this.
Sam: I knew when Cat was thinking about her. I didn’t want to believe it so I put it to the back of my mind. The same way I ignored Ryder today. God, every choice I make is f—ed.
Lexy: Your instincts are good. You have to trust yourself.
Sam: I can’t trust myself anymore. I can’t trust anyone.
Lexy: You can trust me.
They look at each other for a moment and then Sam touches her face and they kiss. At first tentatively and then deeply. And then they are holding each other tightly, kissing and breathing deeply and undressing.
