The Dead Zone s05e07 Episode Script

Symmetry

I had the perfect life Until I was in a coma for six years, And then I woke up And found my fiancee married to another man And they're raising my son.
Everything has changed Including me.
One touch, and I can see things, Things that happened, things that will happen.
You should see what I see.
Wake up, sleepyhead.
Breakfast is ready.
I forgot where I was.
It was like a dream.
What was it about? What? Your dream.
I can't remember.
I must have been pretty tired.
Yeah, it was after 2:00 by the time you got over here.
I can't thank you enough.
Listen, Maiya, these phone calls in the middle of the night and the hang-Ups It's got to be your ex-Husband, right? That means he knows where you are.
Remember how I always used to say I wanted this unconventional life, to live life on the edge? Sounds like Cole's a little bit too edgy, though.
Oh, god.
Cole was He turned into someone that I don't even know.
I mean, the things he did I had to get away from him.
Look, if he violates your restraining order, you can have him sent to jail.
And what about Siena, you know? It's her father.
What does it look like if I have him sent to prison? Look, the main thing is that you're both safe.
He told me that he would never let me take his daughter.
You're still here? Oh.
Well, good morning.
Why did you come over in the middle of the night? Because I was craving your mommy's World-Famous mushroom omelet.
Are you hungry? We're going blueberry picking and lobstering.
Have you ever found buried treasure? Oh, that one I missed.
Wow.
My daddy told me about how he was going to take me to look for it someday in the land of gold.
Okay, Picasso.
Come on.
Let's go.
You go pack your stuff.
Hey.
You're doing the right thing.
I really missed you.
Me too.
Why don't you, uh finish your breakfast, and then lock up.
Yeah? Still sleeping, huh? Well, I don't blame you after last night.
So listen, I could really use your help on something.
Mm-Hmm.
This guy came by to file a complaint.
Said that his old girlfriend's being stalked by her ex-husband.
Must be an epidemic.
How's that? You know anything about the ex-Husband? Yeah, he's a pretty rough character.
He's got a weapons conviction, assault He's got a restraining order against him.
I put out an apb on this guy.
But you want to make sure he doesn't find the ex-wife first, right? Yeah, well, the guy that reported her missing says he hasn't seen her since this morning.
Whatever I can do.
I've got a picture, but I had the guy drop off something for you to touch.
This is a picture of the girl.
Her name is Maiya.
Maiya Raymond.
How the hell did you know that? I spent last night at her house.
Okay, I checked with the blueberry farms.
There was no sign of Maiya or her daughter.
They mentioned the lobster boats.
How well do you know this woman? We went to college together.
It's all a little bit blurry.
It feels like a lifetime ago.
Was she something special? I'm not sure.
She invited me over to her house last night.
After the birthday party? She said she'd been getting these phone calls in the middle of the night.
Might be the ex-Husband.
Ooh-Hoo-Hoo! Sounds like a real mess.
Why are you smiling at me like that? Am I smiling? Yeah, and it's creeping me out.
I wonder where all those boats are sailing off to.
I wish I was on one of them.
Where do you want to go? I don't know.
Nowhere.
Everywhere.
Make it up as I go along.
Come with me.
What? There's something special about you.
I can see it in your eyes.
I'm the least special person in this whole college.
Don't do the safe thing.
Do something amazing with your life.
Go on your instincts.
Feelings.
Wow.
I was here.
With Maiya.
Why can't I remember any of this? I give up.
Why? It's like this whole chunk of my life doesn't exist.
It's like she knew who I was, like we had this connection.
The doctors tell me that coma patients lose memories, but why is this all coming back to me now? Yeah, why now? Anybody home? Can I help you? Where's Maiya? She's not home.
You the new boyfriend? Who's asking? I am.
Look, I know who you are.
You need to stop calling here in the middle of the night.
I didn't, but I bet you did, in order to scare her enough to invite you over.
That's crazy.
You've always had a thing for Maiya.
She told me.
We're friends.
She's afraid of you.
She moved 3,000 miles to get away from you.
Yeah and who put that idea into her head? You poisoned her against me.
You filled her head with lies! Last night was the first time I saw her in years! Then why did she leave? Because she thought you were dangerous! Can I help you? Where's Maiya? She's not home.
What are you, the new boyfriend? Who's asking? I am.
I, uh I didn't mean that.
Look, man, I know who you are.
You need to stop calling here in the middle of the night.
I didn't, but I bet you did, in order to scare her enough to invite you over.
That's crazy.
You've always had a thing for Maiya.
She told me.
Look, man, we're friends, and she's afraid of you.
She moved 3,000 miles away to get away from you.
And who put that idea in her head, huh? You poisoned her against me.
You filled her head with lies! I haven't seen her in years! Then why did she leave? Because she thought you were dangerous! What am I doing? I'm sorry.
Who are you? Desmond.
Eames.
I'm a friend of Maiya's.
How did you get in here? Maiya let me in.
I've been trying to reach her all day.
Are you Johnny Smith? How do you know my name? I've been expecting you.
Come on in.
Sheriff Bannerman told me you might be able to help.
You spoke to Walt? When I took him Maiya's scarf.
He told me you'd need something of hers to touch.
Well, I was here last night.
Maiya called me.
She was afraid that Cole had followed her.
That's strange.
What do you mean? She called me, too.
I came over and spent the night on the couch.
You slept on the couch? Then this morning, after she and Siena left, Cole showed up.
Son of a bitch sucker-Punched me.
Cole punched you? Hey, you okay? What's wrong, man? You all right? I can't breathe.
What have I done? What's happening to me? It's okay.
Everything's going to be all right.
Sarah? Sarah! Are you there? Johnny You have to help me! Just keep listening to the sound of my voice.
Just keep listening I'm losing my mind.
You need to concentrate on the sound of my voice.
This day just keeps getting stranger and stranger, doesn't it? What happened? Why am I in a hospital bed? You're in the hospital, Johnny.
You were hurt.
But I don't understand.
I keep seeing the same things, but from different perspectives.
It's like I'm stuck in What? In a vision.
Some kind of vision loop.
How do we get out of it? I don't know.
I just don't know.
We really are trapped in this vision.
Then this conversation must be a part of it.
Makes sense.
Johnny, just keep listening to my voice.
If I'm stuck in a vision, then what are you doing here? Maybe I'm not here.
I mean in reality.
You mean I'm making you up in my mind? It's like my own thoughts are coming back at me.
Johnny, you were found lying beside your car near the coast highway.
Some kids found you and called the police.
I don't remember driving to the coast, Sarah.
You took a blow to the head.
The doctors are worried that you might slip back into a coma.
Oh, no, no, no.
No, that cannot happen to me.
All right, now, can you remember how this all started? I woke up, and she was making breakfast, and, um Wait a minute.
That's it.
I was trying to find Maiya.
Keep going.
I was trying to find her.
That must be the key to all this.
How can you find her if you're in the hospital? I can't, unless I I keep seeing this fight, and if this really is a vision, then whatever happened to me hasn't happened yet.
Why didn't I think of that? So I might be able to stop it if I can just find Maiya.
Just hang in there, Johnny.
I'll be here waiting for you.
Oh, man.
Where? Where? Where could she be? Huh.
Now, what do I know about her? Happy birthday, Johnny! Oh, that's great.
That's great.
Why don't you just drive us into a tree while you're at it? Wasn't me.
Yeah, I figured that out.
Happy birthday, Johnny boy! Dude, you need to quit saying that, all right? No, like I said, it wasn't me.
If you're my subconscious, why do I keep wishing myself happy birthday? What the hell does my birthday have to do with any of this? You got to find Maiya, right? Yeah, well, something tells me it's the only way to save myself.
What are you gonna do, find the guy that popped you in the eye? Are we going to kick his ass? No, "we" aren't going to do any of that, okay? You're just here for moral support.
I can do that, I can do that, but I want to try out some karate moves that I learned back in high school.
Hwah! It's judo, okay? And I learned it at the ymca, thank you very much.
If you're going to be me, why don't you get it right.
Yeah, whatever.
The fact of the matter is, if you don't find Maiya, you could be looking at another long, dark sleep.
We've got to go see Walt.
Walt? What for? I can't think of another place to start.
Happy birthday to us! You get it? Happy birthday to you and me, 'cause Seriously, dude, you need to lighten up.
I didn't expect to see you back here so soon.
I kind of got turned around.
I was wondering if you heard anything about Maiya.
Like I said before, we're looking for her.
I was just wondering if you could assign a few more people to the search, make it a priority case? All right, look, I know you're worried about your friend, okay? But like I said before, we're looking for her.
All my deputies have copies of her picture.
That is all I can do.
You ever get the feeling that you're invisible? What do you mean? Come on, man.
What is it going to take? A bolt of lightning from the heavens? The guy isn't seeing you.
Me? Do you see anybody else around here? Look.
That's why Walt's acting funny.
He thinks I'm Desmond.
You are desmond But you're you But you're also It's complicated.
You still here? Look, sheriff, I know you don't know me, but I'd really appreciate it If you'd tell me what's going on.
And what about Johnny Smith? What about John Smith? Uh-Oh.
You just opened a big can of worms.
What about John? I just know that he's concerned about finding Maiya.
Have you considered how he feels? Look, if he needs you, He'll come find you.
He can take care of himself.
If he only knew the truth.
Will you shut up? Excuse me? I'm - I'm sorry.
All right, look, why don't you go home.
We'll find her.
Everything's going to be all right, okay? That's what he thinks.
So, what now, birthday boy? I need to go somewhere and think.
That's a good idea.
I didn't ask for your opinion.
So, what, now you're mad at me? That doesn't even make any sense.
You poisoned her against me.
You filled her head with lies! I haven't seen her in years! Then why did she leave? Because she thought you were dangerous! What am I doing? What's going on inside of me? This is bad.
I think we should go.
I must be Cole.
Something keeps switching me from body to body.
I feel their energy and their anger.
I've got to keep control, man.
That's good, but I still think we should go.
I think you're right.
This is crazy.
Yeah But look at this car.
I always wanted a mustang.
Yeah, me too.
All right, can we focus here? Sorry.
What now? I am Cole.
What is it? It's a motel receipt.
Cole must be staying somewhere near the coast.
Hey, that's where Sarah said they found your body.
Maybe we ought to leave this one alone.
I mean, there's no point in looking for trouble, right? Don't you get it? My only chance to get out of this insanity is if I find Maiya.
Who wants her nearly as bad as I do? Cole.
Now you're starting to get it.
Let me go check my motel room.
If we can't find her, maybe he can.
Oh, yeah, this is chis is Would you not do that? Come on, it's fun.
You mean I can do that? It's a vision, right? Yeah.
Live a little.
That is really strange.
That's the world we live in Or don't live in.
I don't know anymore.
But anyways, come on in, man.
The water's fine.
That's fun, isn't it? I can feel him.
Looks like he's planning a trip.
Thing is, there's only two tickets.
Whoa.
This guy's all wrapped up in one.
You don't think he'd be crazy enough to kill someone, do you? Just you and me, Siena.
All right, Cole came here to get his daughter, and it looks like he was willing to do anything to make that happen.
Yeah, but we still don't know how you ended up in the hospital.
But we know that I wasn't shot, so that means we still have a chance to stop this.
Yeah.
Yeah, that's good.
Now all we have to do is find this Maiya person.
What's wrong? I feel like I'm missing something.
There has to be something here! I know you said you were in control of those other energies, but you should really take a look around.
Cole did this.
He must have been looking for something to help him find Maiya.
Same mission, different agenda.
Any suggestions? Let's bake a birthday cake.
My own house? What the hell am I doing here? There's no place like home.
I'm me.
I mean I'm us.
This was last night.
My birthday party But why am I here? This has nothing to do with finding Maiya.
Mm.
Maybe it does.
Maybe it does.
Good night.
Happy birthday, Johnny.
Thank you, guys.
Thanks for coming.
Oh, those kooky Bannermans.
Always the last to leave.
See you later, old man.
Here.
This is from me.
It's dumb.
I bet it isn't.
Don't open it now, okay? Later.
Okay.
Thanks, bud.
You always wanted a fish tank.
They cost extra to do that? You can't hurt my feelings.
I'm you, remember? Yeah, how could I forget? Buried treasure.
Buried what? Siena was talking about searching for buried treasure.
I almost forgot.
Where do kids go to look for treasure? The beach.
Sarah said that they found me on the coast highway.
That's great.
Maine has 3,478 miles of coastline.
Where do we start? Hello? Who's there? There's nobody there.
Strange.
Mommy? Oh, my god.
Look at me.
Hi, sweetie.
Is everything okay? Did the phone wake you? I'm sorry.
Everything's okay.
Why don't you go back to bed, sweetie.
I can't sleep.
I need a story.
Oh You know what? I have an idea.
Why don't you draw me a picture? Of what? Of daddy and the land of gold? No, of you and me.
How does that sound? I'll draw the treasure beach since we're going there tomorrow.
Perfect.
They're at treasure beach.
You had a vision? Yeah.
Well, let's go.
Good luck.
What are you doing here? No, this can't be happening.
I'm Cole again? I can see.
So he came back to the house, she wasn't there, so he waited.
It was like he knew.
Knew what? That I'd lead him right back to her.
Johnny, that's Maiya's car.
I'm not getting anything.
Let's search the beach.
I'll check this area over here.
I led him right to her.
I led him right to her.
Oh, thank god, Johnny.
Look who's awake.
Hey, relax, man.
It's going to be okay.
What happened? You need to rest.
Tell me.
A woman was being stalked by her ex.
Maiya? Maiya Raymond.
I saw it.
Treasure beach.
Johnny You had a concussion.
The doctor said that- Cole was watching the house.
He followed us.
That's how he found her.
Now, what happened? Tell me.
Where's Maiya? You were lucky.
With all that rage, I don't think anybody could have stopped him.
She's dead? Why couldn't I see that? I mean, I led him right to her, Walt.
I made this happen.
Cole did this, not you.
We've still got a problem, John.
What? Cole's taken Siena.
The police have no idea where.
I've got an apb out on him, and a full amber alert, but I can't say if he's going to hurt his daughter or not.
I have to find her.
I heard you're awake.
That's good.
Listen, doc, I need to go.
Johnny, I need to warn you- A concussion with a previous history of brain injury is a very serious situation.
We have to find this little girl.
I can't tell you how dangerous this might be.
I'm going to be with him, doctor.
The last place that anyone saw Cole was at treasure beach, so we'll start there and see if I can get a hit off of something.
Easy.
What's this? A present from j.
J.
With everything that's happened, you didn't have time to open it yet.
Happy birthday, Johnny.
I'm still in the vision.
This is what happens if I don't change this.
I can still save her.
Ready or not, here I come! Hey, picasso, I'm getting warmer.
Siena come out, come out wherever you are.
Look, mommy.
Treasure.
Wow.
Pyrite.
Pirate's treasure.
Listen, picasso, I need you to do a favor for me, okay? I want you to stay right here.
But it's your turn to hide.
No, you hide again.
Stay hidden until I come back.
Okay.
You promise? Okay.
Give me a kiss.
Right here.
Okay, go.
What are you doing here? We need to talk.
Stay away from me.
I just want to see Siena.
You lost that right.
So where is she? You're in violation of your restraining order.
You cannot keep me away from my daughter.
Leave now, and I won't tell anyone or press any charges.
Just go.
I have a right to see my daughter! No, Cole! You don't understand.
No, you don't understand- Maiya! Oh, my god.
Maiya! Maiya! One touch, three lives.
Four, including yours.
That's why I kept switching from person to person.
My brain is deprived of oxygen.
Four lives bound by one.
This is from me.
Don't open it now, okay? Okay.
Thanks, man.
Daddy! Come here, baby.
Come here.
Come here.
Come here.
Cole, wait! Stay back! Don't do it.
Daddy No, sweetheart, it's okay.
It's okay.
Mommy! Is she hurt? Your mommy's okay.
Your mommy's fine, honey.
Siena! Oh, my god! All I wanted was my daughter.
But you didn't give me a choice! You took her away! No! No, baby, it's okay.
Baby, don't cry.
No No, we're going to go to that place I told you about, just like I promised you.
Where's that, Cole? Where's that place? Peru? Incan treasure? Listen, every father wants to make his child's dreams come true, right? Who are you? I'm a father just like you, and I know what it's like to have lost time with your kid.
All right? No.
You don't know me.
Put the gun down, man.
Let's talk.
There's nothing to talk about.
There is.
The future.
Yours and Siena's.
We're going to go make a future together.
You're going to have to do it alone.
Siena needs her mother right now, Cole So think about what's best for Siena.
It's not fair.
Then make it right.
I just wanted her to know me.
Please, Cole.
Please.
This isn't the way to keep her, Cole.
I know you love her So if you love her, Just let her go.
Let her go.
Come here, picasso.
Come here.
Go see mama.
Come here, baby.
Come here.
Oh, my god.
Freeze! Drop your weapon! Go, go.
It's all right, honey.
This is Johnny Smith, The psychic that helped us find you.
Do you know my mommy? No, but I feel like I do.
How could I ever thank you? You can have my picture.
Thank you.
Crazy, huh? Last night, we're celebrating your birthday, and today, you're just hoping you'd have another one.
Don't forget this.
Do you know where J.
J.
Got this? Yeah, he found it in an old box of stuff at your place.
Shined it all up for you.
I thought it looked familiar.
It was my father's.
Really.
There's a certain sense of symmetry to that, don't you think? Symmetry.
Yeah, I guess you could call it that.
