Warning, the following paragraphs contain spoilers on the episode of More beautiful life broadcast tomorrow night on France 3!
In the middle of the night, Kevin goes to the police station where he tells Jean-Paul and Patrick the memory of his last telephone conversation with Léa. Thanks to his description of the man who broke into the town hall, Jean-Paul creates a composite portrait. He then compares it to their files and comes across that of Marcus, an ultra-violent mercenary…
For her part, Babeth tells Emilie that she believes Patrick is innocent. She suspects him of playing a role in an investigation, as has happened in the past. Emilie, on the other hand, disagrees.
Meanwhile, Jean-Paul asks Ariane if Marcus is the driver of the 4×4 that followed them. Seeing his photo, the Lieutenant confirms it. Jean-Paul then confesses to his colleague and to Mathieu that this famous Marcus kidnapped Léa and attacks all the police officers of the Mistral police station. Mathieu, who is out of the case, offers to help.
Patrick, meanwhile, is waiting for Sylvia in his room at the Zéphyr. Facing her, the policeman plays his game, as if they had really been lovers. Pushed against the wall, the young woman agrees to explain everything to him.
She apologizes for the harm she caused Patrick’s family, then tells that a man contacted him via a hidden number to force him to lie. If she didn’t, he threatened to kill Francesco. Patrick shows Marcus’ photo to Sylvia, who immediately recognizes him. She adds that they have an appointment the next day in front of a shopping center. Patrick promises to protect Sylvia and her brother and to fix the situation.
In the evening, Patrick leaves the Zéphyr with Sylvia in order to join Francesco and put them in a safe place. But, crossing the Place du Mistral, they come across Emilie who accuses them of appearing together. Sylvia then reveals to her friend that she made it all up, that Patrick is innocent and, moreover, that he is saving her life. Emilie understands that she was wrong about her father and that he is acting with good intentions.
As soon as he wakes up, Kilian takes great care of Betty. But the girl is completely depressed. To change his mind, Kilian launches a film that they watch together. However, he finds that the comedy has no effect on Betty, who confirms to him that she is having the worst day of her life.
Kilian states that the worst day of his life was when he raised his hand on her. The young man nevertheless affirms that this will never happen again, in particular thanks to his work in therapy. While Betty thinks the abuse can’t be cured, Kilian says he sees positive results every day. He would therefore like Betty to trust him again, as before. But the latter knows her fiery temper and her ability to provoke Kilian when she is angry.
Betty then thinks of something that could do her good: watching Bambi. Kilian therefore goes to Noé to borrow the DVD of the film. Noé agrees to lend it to her and thanks his ex-best friend for taking care of Betty, realizing that he hasn’t been up to it.
As they watch Bambi, Kilian notices that Betty is crying. He advises her to drop everything. Betty confesses that she feels sad all the time to the point of wanting to end her life. Kilian tells him that this period of depression is due to the fall of hormones and that it is only temporary.
Barbara asks Estelle to be her baby’s godmother. The latter accepts with joy, then questions her best friend about the identity of the godfather. If Barbara considered offering Nathan and Abdel to fill this role, she finally chose Thomas. This one is in heaven.
A little later, Barbara surprises Thomas organizing a baby shower for her. Upon learning that he invited Abdel and Elisa, Barbara annoyedly declares that she will not participate in the event.
Meanwhile, Nisma wraps the present she bought for Barbara’s baby. She asks Abdel and Elisa what they have planned. Abdel replies that he did receive Thomas’s invitation but that he has no intention of going to the baby shower because he had already planned to go to the restaurant with Elisa.
Finally, Barbara decides to go down to the Marci where the baby shower is taking place. She apologizes to Thomas for her mood swings. While she is surrounded by many Mistralians who have come to offer her gifts, Barbara sees Abel and Elisa cross the Place du Mistral hand in hand.
