‘Tiny Pretty Things’ Episode 9: Bette arrested for attempted murder of Cassie, but is she the real culprit?
Do you think it was Bette or is her name being used to protect someone else? Who is the real culprit?
Spoilers for ‘Tiny Pretty Things’
Who pushed Cassie Shore off the roof? That question echoes through every single episode of Netflix's new drama and the ninth episode ‘It's Not the Waking, It's the Rising’ starts on a dreary note as Officer Isabel Cruz (Jess Salgueiro) comes to make an arrest.
We soon move two days back as Monique Du Bois (Lauren Holly) meets with her staff and tells them she had no clue the ballerinas were being abused at the VIP club. With a huge hit to their reputation, it seems this could be an end to her reign at the Archer School of Ballet. Meanwhile, the dancers step up with a viral video to save the school from the expose's fallout.
The last episode ‘Relevé’ ended with Cassie Shore (Anna Maiche) springing back to life and when Nabil (Michael Hsu Rosen) visits her, she utters the words, “Pushed. Didn't fall.” Before she can give a name, she falls unconscious again. The episode keeps you on the edge of your seat, guessing who could be arrested for the attempted murder.
In the eighth episode, Bette Whitlaw (Casimere Jollette) asked Ramon Costa's (Bayardo De Murguia) to give the lead and he does so, much to June Park's (Daniela Norman) chagrin. When June confronts Ramon, he retorts that she dances like a virgin. The show orchestrates how men like Ramon do not change their stance towards women even after a sensational news story about predators surfaces.
June confronts Monique about losing her lead role. Monique states she had no idea what was happening at the club and calls June weak. June accuses Monique of thinking that women perform better after being raped — Monique cries and slaps June and states how she survived it and formed a romance. June reminds her that Paige will be traumatized and damaged forever and that she wouldn’t be surprised if Travis pushed Cassie — she tells Monique this is all on her. It’s good that a character has finally said it; Monique’s way of running the school has caused the toxic environment.
As expected, the rivalry soon sparks a bitter fight and the two have an argument. Amid all the chaos, Ramon decides to pay Cassie a visit and she is in a state of shock. As she tries to protect her phone, he smashes it onto the floor. While Cassie makes it clear to Ramon that she has the right to spill the truth, he warns her how he can find “tiny little things that she loves and tear the wings off.” At the same moment, Nabil enters the room and Cassie explains what she had with Ramon was just a summer fling and looks visibly scared of him. The sequence makes you wonder: Did Ramon push Cassie?
As the episode comes to a close, Officer Cruz shows up just before the 'Ripper' performance and takes Bette into custody. Who could've thought it was her? While June offers to do the solo, Shane (Brennan Clost) says Bette did not kill Cassie. Do you think it was Bette or is her name being used to protect someone else? Who was the real culprit?
