‘Tiny Pretty Things’ Episode 8: Is Cassie Shore alive? She could reveal who really pushed her off the roof
If Cassie comes back to life and can talk again, will she spill the beans on who pushed her off the roof herself?
The horror of a sexual assault never really escapes your mind. Episode 8 ‘Relevé’ begins with flashbacks of the devastating experience June Park (Daniela Norman) faced with Travis Quinn (Luke Humphrey) as he tried to rape her. Meanwhile, Neveah Stroyer (Kylie Jefferson) plans to release the recording from that night and wants the school to rebuild itself. But is she right in putting June's life at stake while trying to expose the truth?
Midway through the episode, Travis comes back and confronts June. Trying to strangle her neck, he threatens her, “Get ready to end up like Cassie shore, because trust me, I know how to make a girl quiet.” When June tells Neveah about the repercussions, Neveah isn't ready to pull that article from publishing and even wonders if Travis was the one who pushed Cassie off the roof. But June makes it clear that she wants her to stop the article from being published.
Meanwhile, Nabil (Michael Hsu Rosen) is not ready to let go of Cassie Shore (Anna Maiche) and explains to her parents how he knew her the best during her final days before she went into a coma. He argues that her hand moved. But Cassie's parents tell him it's time to let her go as he stands with tears in his eyes.
Interweaving other ballet dancers' lives from the Archer School of Ballet, the episode then sheds light on Bette Whitlaw (Casimere Jollette) who just can't stop wondering if she was the one who pushed Cassie. She keeps playing the events before Cassie's death in her mind. Confessing she was drunk and had no clue what happened, she tells Matteo Marchetti (Alex Eling): “How are you not worried I might be a cold-blooded killer? I betrayed every friend I ever had trying to get ahead.”
Being the true support he is, Matteo tells her to trust herself. Later, Bette storms into Ramon Costa's (Bayardo De Murguia) house and tells him: “If you give me back the solo, I'll dance it like it's the last ballet I'll ever do.”
The episode ends on a shocking note as Nabil's friends console him right before Cassie's parents decide to pull the plug. Just as they are about to lift her off the life support, her heartbeat returns and she breathes on her own. The moment will astonish you and catch you off guard. As Nabil sits by Cassie's side, reading her stories, he notices she opens her eyes. If Cassie comes back to life and can talk again, will she spill the beans on who pushed her off the roof herself?
