Eilish posted a clip from episode four in which Dre tells Eilish’s character she sees “milk spilled on the carpet.”

The famous singer-turned actress then asks what color the milk is, and Dre replies, “It was red.”

“Did you hurt someone?” Eilish whispers quietly.

Dre nods, and Eilish smiles and says, “Very good.” (RELATED: REPORT: Police Surround Billie Eilish’s Home After Prank Call)
