The tension in the car between David and Veronica on the way home from the police station is palpable when David starts inquiring into the death of Maggie Day. "So, how did you do it?" he says quietly.
"Do what?" Veronica says, playing dumb.
"You set it up."
"I don't know what you're talking about."
"Tell me," David says, grabbing her arm. Veronica points out the car that's been following them and tells him that it's her personal security. Disgustedly, David releases her arm and then begins fumbling for something in the middle console.
"Oh, so you're going to shoot me now," Veronica says with delight.
Rather than pulling a pistol, however, David hands her some paperwork.
"What is this?" Veronica says with genuine surprise.
"Your wish," he tells her.
"Divorce papers," she says softly.
"That's what you wanted, isn't it?"
Despite having previously served David with divorce papers, now Veronica refuses to sign them and tears them up.
"It's already filed," David says.
"Then I'll contest it," she says.
Veronica promises David that he'll regret it if he doesn't reverse his decision to file the divorce papers. "I will make every day of your life a living hell," she says.
"Good," he says evenly, "because hell would be better than what I'm going through now."
A brief silence descends between husband and wife. Then, David glances in his rearview mirror. "You said that's your car behind?" David asks. When Veronica replies in the affirmative, he suddenly pulls the car over to the side of the road. "Get out."
"Get out or I will drag your ass out," David says.
"Now...that's the husband I want. I would love to see that," Veronica says with a chuckle.
David follows through on his threat, unbuckling his seatbelt and exiting the car.
As David walks around the front of the car, barely keeping his rage under control, Veronica continues to cackle with glee. "Most excitement I've had in this marriage in about five or six years!" she says.
David opens the passenger side and, true to his word, forcibly removes his wife from her seat, pushing her toward her hired muscle, who have stopped to check on their employer. He then turns to leave as Veronica continues to shout taunts at his back.
