Bloodline Killer (2024) Movie Script

- Trick or treat!
- Welcome.
Who dares bring this little
Roger Federer into my castle?
What did I tell you kids?
This house is the best on the
Of course, you already know
that. And soon, we will rule
That's what I thought.
One, two, because you got an
honest face.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Thanks for coming.
We really need to switch it up.
These teeth are killing me.
I didn't sign up for that.
Hey, in the Cole family,
handing out candy is
part of our civic duty. Hm.
Where's mom?
She's lying down.
She's not feeling well.
It's a full moon.
Uh, let me go check on her.
No, no, no.
She's fine. She's my wife.
Now, let us watch spooky movies
and TP the neighborhood
and give gobs of chocolates
to the golden goblins
of deep in its folds.
I have to study, Dad.
The MCATs, it's a six hour test.
This stuff reads like stereo
Doctor Kevorkian, line one.
It sounds overwhelming.
-It is.
-So take a break.
Spend some time with your old
Life goes faster than you think.
The next one.
I'll come to the front door,
the next one.
Want to go with the teeth?
I'll clean them. All right. Mm!
You're crazy.
Christ, can you shut the door,
Dad, shut the door.
It's freezing in here.
I want to drink your blood!
Dad, what the fuck?
watch your language.
I got you good on that one.
You're silly.
It wasn't funny, Dad.
Come on, I got a chapter
to read through here.
If you keep going like that,
there'll be nothing left for
those kids.
Eh, we probably don't need any
There's just a few stragglers
More for me.
Like I said.
Just a few stragglers.
I think it's happy hour.
Oh! Okay.
Next victim.
Seriously, you
gotta close the door.
I'm not gonna fall for it
again, Dad.
Dad, you can come out now.
Connor, Connor. Look at me.
Hey, what is it?
Connor, what happened?
Excuse me, can somebody
tell me what's going on?
Hi, Mr. Cole.
My name is Shelly Littner.
I'm the grief counselor here.
I'm so sorry.
But your father died.
Okay, what is going on?
-Excuse me.
No, don't call me that.
Only Dad calls me that.
- Michael, come on.
Come on.
- I'm sorry.
-You got this.
-I'm sorry.
-Come on, just breathe.
-I'm sorry.
I thought you said that my dad
I did.
I'm sorry.
- We're gonna get you through
this, okay?
Where the fuck were
you when this happened?
What did you say?
-What... did you do?
-Don't. Don't you do that.
-Don't. Don't touch me.
-What the fuck did you do?
What did you do? Where the fuck
were you?
What the fuck did you do?
What did you do? Huh? What did
you do?
-What did I do?
-Where the fuck were you?
How do you think I got this?
Come on, Michael.
Let's go. Michael.
I would have saved him.
-I did what I could.
-I would have.
-I would have fucking saved him.
-Come on, let's go.
Miss Moira, sorry to wake you.
I'm Detective Cyphers,
and this is my partner,
Detective Lynn Fink.
Look, I know you've
been through a lot tonight.
But it's very
important that you try and
tell us what happened.
I told the other detectives.
What other detectives?
The woman with the glasses.
She touched me.
I didn't like that.
I told you to lock
this place down.
I did.
No reporters, no interviews,
Get out there and lock this
shit down.
I'm on it.
I apologize for that.
- Mm.
- Look, Miss Moira...
I'm gonna need you to
go over everything with me.
You could help me to find the
person that killed your husband.
My cousin.
Lee Morris, Skulleton?
-Where are my sons?
-They're fine.
I want my sons!
- I want my sons! I want my sons!
- A little help!
Got it?
-Is he dead?
Did I kill him?
Is he dead?
Is he dead?
We are here
at the scene of a heinous crime
that has the entire
Deep Ridge Falls community
on edge
as the assailant
is still at large.
A continuous search
and manhunt is in progress
as local authorities
have put out the alert
for all citizens to be on edge
and cautious
for any suspicious activity.
Thank you so much.
See you next week.
Thanks. See you later.
Found somebody new
to take care of, Samantha?
It's none of your business,
Just saying.
You live so close by,
and I know you miss your mom.
I'm gonna need an itemized
Of course.
How are you holding up in that
big, empty house of yours?
I'm fine.
I'm just fine.
You know, I could come over
sometime and, uh,
keep you company if you like.
I'd rather drink Drano.
-Excuse me?
-No. I said no, thank you.
All right.
You want some candy?
I've got all this left over and,
uh, got that licorice you like.
No thank you.
-I need an itemized receipt.
-Here you go.
Have a nice day.
I knew I'd find you here.
It's me.
It's your sister.
Oh, my gosh, you're so injured.
Let me help you.
Let me help you.
I'm a nurse now, eh?
You can trust me.
The only one you can trust.
You can't stay
out here all night.
You're gonna freeze
and you're gonna get caught.
You're safe with me.
Come here.
I know it's been a long day.
I'm so happy to see you.
Want some more coffee?
I'm sorry, what?
What do we do now?
Oh, no.
Get the fuck off my block.
Oh, no, man.
That is not happening.
Yeah, it's Moira.
I changed my number.
Yeah, did you run that plate?
SLS 266?
This bitch is sitting out
front of my house today.
Again, it's like the fourth
Dude, just run the plate.
Yeah, I know it's that time of

up the block
just sitting there.
Dude, run that plate.
There's only one, the original,
the classic, The Skulleton.
This Wednesday night
marks the 24 hour movie
marathon event
of one of the most beloved
icons of our time.
Terror has crept into this
small community
where no one is safe.
Stay close to me, and we'll
find your dad.
You're not gonna get

Subject matter may not be--
What did I tell you about
coming in here unannounced?
When you stop screaming,
I'll stop coming in unannounced.
Happy anniversary.
Happy anniversary.
It's been a year.
Time to get dressed.
I don't want to get dressed.
Come on. I'll help you make
your bed.
You could take me for coffee.
I don't want to take
you for coffee.
I don't want to make my bed.
And I don't want to get dressed.
Are you willing to talk to Dr.
Lucien yet?
I don't want to talk to your
witch doctor.
He's a shrink.
Same difference.
I know you can't see it yet,
but I promise you,
you will come out of this.
See, that's the part that
you don't understand, Mom.
I don't want to come out of it.
You have to find
something to live for.
I had it, Mom.
I had it.
Let me know if
you change your mind.
Hey. I was looking for you.
Everything okay?
Just leave him alone, Mom.
You wanna go get a coffee?
Yes. I would.
All right.
Get some real clothes on.
I gotta be at work in an hour,
all right?
-So you can drop me off.
-Okay. You got it.
Come on, Mom. What do I gotta do
to get you out of this funk?
-Have a scone.
You gotta eat something.
-Oh, God, no.
I've been on bile and
What do you want?
Something else?
-I want this coffee.
-Breakfast sandwich? Okay.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my gosh, Lisa.
- Hi.
- Oh, my gosh.
-I'm so happy to see you.
-You too.
How have you been?
Are you-- Do you
still have the school?
Are you teaching?
Yeah, yeah,
everything's been really good.
I'm just grabbing a coffee
before my toddlers
on ice class at noon.
I can't wrap my mind around
they start that young. Right?
-So young.
-So... yeah.
I think I got
my first pair of skates
when I was three years old.
That's insane.
That's not a pair of ballet
shoes, you know?
That's like, ice skates.
Look, uh, Mom,
I gotta get to work.
Um, you guys stay. Catch up.
It's good seeing you.
Oh my god, I'm so sorry.
I didn't realize
he forgot how to talk.
It's okay.
Do you have time to go
for a walk? Hang out?
-Oh, my God.
I'm so happy to see you.
You want the rest of those?
Yeah. Thank you.
I definitely don't.
Tell me
you're not seeing anyone.
I'm not.
I can work with that.
-Thank God.
-How is Michael?
He needs you.
No. He does not.
-Oh, he does.
You two were made
for each other.
You were. You are.
I know this.
I'm pretty sure you do.
And he just needs
a little more time to remember.
Please don't give up on him.
That would be a mistake.
Is he seeing a therapist?
He... not yet.
He needs to see someone.
A thousand percent.
And he... he's very close.
He just, he's still kind of
crushed under the weight of...
feeling responsible
for his brother and me,
which is a big fat fail
in the mom department.
You're a great mom.
I know you think so.
-I do.
-Oh, shit.
How could they do that?
I mean, you live here.
It is what it is.
I still get royalty checks in
the mail.
Might be our best batch.
All cause of you.
I'll tell you why.
'Cause you're special.
You sure are.
And we don't need to discuss
why you did what you did.
Hey, hey, hey, yo, yo.
I will not have another
repeat of last October.
You will not act up.
No, no, no, no.
So we're gonna
need to put you on
a new mood stabilizer
because the lithium isn't
Did you know that
she lives at 11 Colonial Street?
With her two boys.
She's still there.
With Michael and Connor.
Hey, do you know where
Dad's Halloween box is?
There's two in the attic.
-Michael, there's
another one over there.
They're in this one?
-Why are you smoking out here?
-Why are you in here?
'Cause I'm taking out the trash,
which you should be doing.
Come on, come on!
Don't take that cigarette--
Come on.
Mom, he's an adult.
Well, then he should
do more adulting.
Can we talk for a second?
It's important.
Yeah, sorry.
It's all good.
Listen, I'm moving out.
What is that?
I think you should.
Uh, I thought
you'd try and stop me,
tell me it was too soon...
-...or that Connor wasn't
ready, or...
Connor may never be ready,
That has nothing to do with you.
-Nothing to do with you.
If you're ready to
get on with your life,
then do it.
Move out.
Put up decorations.
Marry Lisa.
-Did I say that out loud?
-One thing at a time, okay?
-Yes! One thing at a time.
Oh, hey.
Hi, officer. I didn't see you
right there.
I must have got
myself turned around.
I am terrible at directions.
-Is that it?
I mean, unless
you want a jar of my mead.
It's pumpkin spice and I brew
it myself.
You can't stop here
and idle like that.
It's a private residence.
Yeah, I just got
lost a little bit.
-Do you understand?
I do now.
Move on.
I'll be damned.
You ran it.
Yep. She's a nobody.
47, lives on North Cotner Lane,
nurse at the NICU.
She took care of her sick
mother, who croaked
about seven years ago.
Your compassion
is overwhelming.
Well, now she clocks
four days a week
at Mather Medical.
Um, like I said,
she's a nobody.
Maybe not.
There is one thing,
says she changed
her name legally,
but doesn't list
why or give the former.
Have Dimity look
into the name change.
Also, Mather Medical.
Why was she over by
the Cole residence?
I don't get it, they both
live in the same town.
Yeah, but on the opposite
sides of the freeway.
Why would she be on that street?
I was just thinking if
the captain saw me taking
initiative on this...
-I mean, Cyphers, he--
Are you thinking about
it as a promotion?
You have any idea
what real detective work is?
It's methodical.
It's systematic.
It's a slow moving target
that you have to stay on top of.
Yeah, I understand.
I don't think you do.
Because we actually
have to build a case.
Especially these days.
Where are you now, Moira?
I'm in the woods between
my dad's house
and my aunt's.
And what do you see around you?
My whole body hurts.
It's cold.
Are you alone?
I'm never alone out here.
I'm with my cousin, Lee.
Who else is with you?
His little sister.
I told him not to bring her.
I told her to look at the
I'm telling her to
look at the flowers.
She shouldn't be seeing this.
What is it you don't
want her to see?
It's just a bird.
But it's so violent.
I can't stop it.
Moira. Hear me.
You can stop it.
No, I can't stop it.
Yeah, you can stop it.
Just tell him.
You can see him.
Tell him, stop it.
You couldn't protect
that little girl.
But you can now.
-Look at him and tell him to
-I can't look at him. I can't
stop it.
It is okay.
Now, I'm gonna count to five.
One, two, three, four, five.
Hurt him for me.
Come on back.
We're here.
I'm here for you every day.
I just wanted to get further.
This time.
Not today,
but you're getting there.
And you know what the whole key
to it is?
Realizing that you are you.
And you are magnificent.
You gotta give a shit about
Can we just agree
that Vera Wilde's Ecstasy series
may be, quite possibly--
I can't believe I'm saying this.
--the greatest book ever
Better than Moon's First Kiss?
But that's been your favorite
book for 20 years.
But it's a sign.
It's a sign.
There's signs all around us.
We can change.
We can change every day.
Yes, we can change!
Whoo-hoo! Lee.
What are you doing?
Bad boy.
You'll feel better.
Sleep tight.
You're okay. I love you.
Good night.
Oh, my God. What did I do now?
Did you tell Michael
to move out?
Yeah, I did.
Why the fuck would
you do that to us?
Watch your mouth in my house.
Your house?
It was Dad's life insurance
that paid it off.
Don't disrespect me in my home!
You want to talk about respect?
Yes, I do want to
talk about respect!
Have some self-respect!
You sleep all day,
you never leave the house,
you don't contribute
anything to the house,
you walk around here
like an angry zombie.
Oh, what the actual fuck
are you talking about?
You don't think your brother
and I hear you
stomping around the
halls all night long?
-You're a fucking liar.
-I'm a liar?
-I'm sick of it.
-What are you sick of?
I'm sick of you,
you got dad murdered!
I'm sorry.
If I could trade places with
him, I would.
But you can't.
Where did you get those?
Why are you sitting
out here in the car?
I got all the way to the
leasing office
and I just sat there.
Couldn't get out of the car.
I don't know.
That's the problem.
I just felt stuck, you know?
Like I was frozen.
My mind is just racing.
You gotta talk to someone.
You do.
I know.
Help you organize those
It doesn't have to be
Dr. Lucian, but someone.
I know.
-I know.
-You do?
Will you do it?
I miss Dad.
Awful things happen
that we have no control over.
There's unspeakable
suffering in the world,
but we're not meant
to suffer alone.
Your dad chose to love me,
and I had no control over that.
And thank God,
because you and your brother
came out of that love.
You're not alone.
So keep going.
Thank you.
Is it five o'clock somewhere?
-I love you, Mom.
-I love you.
So much.
Come inside. And I really need
a drink.
Cyphers, you in?
What made you snap
Samantha Marrin?
Mental instability?
Bad family?
I'm gonna find out.
Sam Marrin.
This is Detective Fink from
the DRF Police Department.
I'd like to ask you
a few questions.
This is Detective Fink.
Coming in.
Anyone down here?
Show your hands!
Dispatch. Do you copy?
I need a bus and a medic.
Do you copy?
Dispatch. Do you copy?
I need a medic.
I have a victim--
That was so good,
you guys.
We're gonna work
on those turns, yeah?
Make sure to wear
Halloween appropriate costumes
at the party next week. Okay?
Okay. Bye, guys.
What are you doing here?
I just came by to say...
To say what?
what do you have to say?
I miss you.
I know.
So, you're still training.
What does it look like?
-Was I that much of a--
-A dick?
I did everything that I could
to make it work between us.
And I know that you know that.
You're right.
I'm sorry.
Look, I just shut down.
And I pushed you away.
I wasn't thinking about you.
And that wasn't fair.
I am so sorry.
Thank you.
I hope it's not over between us.
I don't...
I don't even know what to say.
I don't even know what to think.
I can't go through this again.
I promise,
you won't have to.
I love you.
I'm sorry.
Lee, I'm home.
The NICU was so crowded tonight,
I've never ever
seen it like this.
Of course, Devin and Lauren
called out.
It was so strange.
Then the Southern State was
closed down,
so I had to take
the long way home.
And it was just--
It's just been a long day.
Whoo! I was thinking
about making lamb chops tonight.
Oh, no, no, no, no!
Lee! What have you done?
What have you done?
What have you done?
Lee, get in here!
Lee, listen.
Mommy told me how to shoot.
She taught me and I'll do it.
You know, I don't really
want to, but I'll do it.
Lee, don't make me do this.
We can talk about it.
Lee, I love you so much
and I don't want to shoot you,
but I will.
I will shoot you.
Lee, I love you so much,
but you're scaring me, Lee!
Lee, no!
Oh, no.
I'm fine, Mommy.
I swear. I swear I'm fine.
I'm fine. Mm-hm. Mm-hm.
Yeah, yeah. Okay.
Can I help you?
Can I help you?
Where do you think you're going?
Pal! Buddy.
Can you not hear me?
Can you hear me?
You need to get
out of my store now.
A tragic scene today in Deep
Ridge Falls,
as the body of local shop
owner, Lynn Matic,
of Lynn's Supplies and Hardware
was found unresponsive
and later pronounced dead.
Police are investigating
the scene,
and sources close to the case
say there were signs of a
We're told a first responder
and local nurse,
Samantha Marin, discovered
the body late this afternoon
and tried to administer
lifesaving aid.
Officials say she was held
for questioning
but later let go by local
I need to see Cyphers now.
Ma'am, we told you not to show
up unless it's an emergency.
It's an emergency.
You have to sign in.
What's going on?
Detective, she's nuts.
It's my sign in.
What are you doing?
It's him. I know it's him.
And that nurse on
the scene stalked me
four times in one week.
I gave you her
license plate number.
Ma'am, your cousin is dead.
You don't have a body.
Did you let that nurse go?
Come meet me on the side door.
Or answer my question.
-Get in here now!
-Maybe she's gone.
You can't come running
in here screaming at
the top of your lungs.
I'm in your office.
Could've gotten you shot.
You never found his body.
And this freako nurse
is somehow connected.
-Did you let her go?
-You need to let it go.
You know, in some sick way,
I'm starting to think
you're getting off on this shit.
Screw it.
That was a little harsh.
-May I?
-You're in my office now.
You know what the problem is?
-The problem is you've
convinced yourself
because I wear a badge and a gun
that I suddenly don't give a
fuck about you and your family.
It's not true.
I got ten detectives lined up,
watching my every move,
waiting to take my job.
You and your family are nuts.
You check off every box.
You're in and out of my
precinct, acting like you
on drugs every other week.
And I'm still in it.
I'm still trying to get to the
bottom of what happened.
Do you know what it feels
like to be stalked?
To be the prey?
No, I don't.
I hope you never do.
Don't you want something
different for yourself?
You and your sons
deserve a better life.
Maybe you can't do that here.
It doesn't matter where we go.
Until you have a body,
we're prey.
And that's our life.
Find the nurse.
All right? Find that bitch.
Just tell her to
look at the flowers.
- Look at the flowers.
- Okay?
Look at the flowers.
Moira, what's happening now?
She shouldn't be here.
She shouldn't be here.
Hurt him for me.
-It's okay. It's okay.
-No, no, no.
-Stay in it.
You're the only
one that can protect
me from my father.
-Stay in it.
Stay in it, Moira.
Stop! Please!
Stop! Stop!
I did this for you.
You're back with me.
And you know where we are?
We're in the present.
It's okay.
You did it.
Coco, go downstairs
and check it out.
See, I told you they're nuts.
What the hell is going on?
You little fuckers.
If I see you again in this
I'm gonna chop you up into
little pieces
and feed you to my fucking dog.
Now get out of here!
Was that really necessary?
Was what really necessary?
He's a dumbass kid.
Where are you headed, sir?
Oh, detective.
Uh, why didn't you
use the call signs?
I didn't realize you
were in an unmarked.
I'll get you out of here soon.
Hang tight.
Is everything okay?
Oh, my God.
No! No! No!
We've got lots of
great music coming up for
you in just a few minutes,
but first we have the news.
The discovery
of a body identified as
Detective Lynn Fink
of the Deep Ridge Falls
Police Department
has residents on edge.
Two hikers, we're told,
came across the gruesome scene
in the early morning hours,
and immediately
contacted local authorities.
We're told the suspect in his
murder is still at large
as police continue to
what led up to this crime.
It's him. Isn't it?
It's not him, Moira.
It is him. I know it's him.
Moira, listen.
I just had to go to a
morgue and identify
my partner of ten years.
Today is not the day.
I'm not in the right headspace.
It's him.
You have to know it's him.
Did you understand anything
that I just said to you?
It is him. I know it's him.
Shit, man.
You scared me.
What, are you ten?
What are you, a dick?
Where's mom?
Why do you care?
What's that supposed to mean?
-She hit me.
-Well, she should've
laid you out.
Your shit is tired, bro.
Oh, okay. What, are
you going to bed?
God, you are such a loser, man.
Don't call me a loser.
Well, don't act like one.
Hey, Mike.
How's Lisa doing?
You gotta wonder how many dudes
she's been with while you were,
you know, figuring it out.
It could really
make your head spin.
You know, you are a
miserable human being.
Do you know that?
You need help.
Nobody should be this unhappy.
It's criminal.
Oh. Screw you.
You got money from
Dad's life insurance policy.
You got two degrees.
Get a car, go on a date,
start a fucking life for
Christ's sake.
God, that is done for me.
That life, it's over.
You weren't there.
You didn't see what
that man did to him.
I didn't see?
No, you didn't.
Are you kidding me right now?
I identified Dad's body
in the fucking morgue.
You think that was easy for me?
No, you know what?
You're right.
You're right. It was no big
deal for me at all.
-Fuck off, dude.
-You know what? We all suffered.
Just grow up.
Don't fucking do that again!
She decimated us.
-It was her.
-She did this to us.
-She didn't.
She's not God.
She doesn't have all the
answers to your problems.
That's not how it works.
No shit. I'm not
a fucking idiot.
Then stop using
her as your excuse.
If you could step out of your
own self-pity for ten seconds,
you would understand that.
She wrote to him.
Did you know that?
She intentionally
left our address
on dozens of letters.
To a fucking serial killer
in a maximum security
She led him to us.
She practically rung
a fucking dinner bell.
Stop. It's fucking enough
already, Connor.
Just stop, man.
See for yourself.
Read it.
Where'd you find these?
Behind Dad's old
chest in the garage.
In a hidden compartment, and
there's a lot more of them.
Does she know you have them?
Why don't you ask her that?
Can you zoom in
on that license plate, please?
-This is as close as
I can get before it--
-Before it what?
-What are you talking about?
What's the point of using
these cameras
if you can't get a simple plate?
- It usually picks it up.
- -Well, what is the issue?
Inclement weather
the past month have
taken down power lines.
Hey, Cindi.
I want you to get
the footage to Tech.
I want an image of
that license plate.
-Okay, I'm on it.
-We're doing everything we can.
Yeah, well, I'm not asking you.
Cindi, take care of it,
Have we been able
to identify our Jane Doe yet?
We're still waiting on Dimmy
for the dental records.
All right, well, as soon
as you do, you come to
me directly, understand?
- Understood.
- Okay, look, hey.
I don't want this woman's name,
or Officer Mochetto
released to the public yet,
because we will have
a shitstorm on our hands.
There is a serial killer
on the loose, folks.
Oh, lieutenant!
If you don't already know,
or if you haven't met, this is
Lieutenant Trusten James.
He's helping with our
I need all the photos
from the crime scene
and all the evidence that you
have as soon as possible.
Let's go.
Who's this Trusten James?
He's a maniac cop
obsessed with the Skulleton.
Supposedly him and Cyphers
grew up together.
He's a fucking liability.
Hey! What the hell
are you doing?
-I just painted that!
-Fuck you, old man.
-Stop being such a bitch,
old man.
Are you kidding me?
You know, I know
both of your parents.
I did your mom!
What is this?
Nikki! Come look
at what I found.
If we get caught, uh...
Is that not what
we stole the masks for?
I mean...
Dude, you are so lame.
I'll call you later.
Whatever. I'll hang
out by myself then.
Is that you?
I swear, you better not be
messing with me, man.
What are you doing, Mom?
Doesn't look like nothing.
I'm watching.
With a shotgun.
You think it's him, don't you?
I don't know
who killed that man, but
I'm not taking any chances.
Why did you write
the letters, Mom?
I needed it to be over.
And I don't expect
you to understand.
I don't.
I had to be sure he was gone.
Long time, Dimmy.
I'm so sorry about Lynn.
He was a really good friend.
Thank you.
Yes, he was.
Listen, I need you to run these
through your database.
See what you come up with.
But I won't be able to get to
this until at least tomorrow.
I owe the LT all the backup
on that Jane Doe case.
And it's a court order.
Damn, I kind of need it today.
I understand.
Uh, my hands are tied.
I'm the only one
in this department.
Dim, it's for Lynn.
It's all the evidence
I have from the crime scene.
All right.
I'll see what I can do.
Thank you.
Where are you going now?
Gotta go question
the witness.
Just do the best you can on it.
Call me when you're done.
-All right, will do.
-Thank you.
Detective Cyphers.
Deep Ridge Police Department,
I'm coming in.
-It's Cindi.
Sam Marrin's not at the
She didn't check in
for her shift at the
ICU at Mather Medical.
She didn't show up yesterday
either. Is she at her home?
I'm not sure.
-I'm about to find out.
-Cyphers, are you there?
-I'll call you back.
-Cyphers, don't go in there
Detective Cyphers.
Anyone home?
Thought I collected that.
You did this to all of us.
I did this for a lot of people.
And I would do it for you too,
but you're not gonna make it.
I was lost.
He was lost.
We're the same.
I made a promise to mother,
the day she died, that I would
find a meaning in my life.
That I would find meaning in
Lee's life.
'Cause she never once--
She never once, ever
gave up on her only son,
so how could I?
Mom! Mom, what do I do?
What do I do?
Sorry. I'm sorry.
I can't believe you guys
ate all the mac and cheese.
Would it gross you out
if I used your fork?
I know.
I know you.
Do you remember
that time dad tried to install
the new sprinkler system?
That one summer?
When he completely messed up
the input and output lines
and he wound up dousing
dirty water all over those
stuffy neighbors next door.
I'm the one who had to go make
peace with the stuffy neighbors
at the end of the day.
Your dad had a way about him.
First time I ever really
smiled was with him.
Forgive me.
For your own sake.
I'm not asking you
to understand me.
Just forgive.
I forgive you for eating
all the mac and cheese.
I love you.
I love you so much.
I love you too.
You think someone could
go through something
so bad that they...
never recover from it?
I think you need to talk to
somebody, bud.
Talking about mom, asshole.
I mean, we don't know
what she went through
in her childhood.
I've never even heard her
mention her dad's name.
Not once.
You ever heard her
talk about her mom?
When she does,
it's morbid.
It's cryptic.
Dad knew.
And he still loved her.
Dad kept those letters from mom.
For reasons we'll never know.
Yes, dad loved her.
Do you need help?
Uh, no, I'm...
I'm good, thank you.
All right.
You know what
I do need help with?
Figuring out what
the hell I'm gonna wear
to the annual Halloween
fundraiser for Lisa's students.
The only upside of you
breaking up with that girl
was the fact that we didn't
have to do that anymore.
You're going.
You, me, mom.
I'll bring fucking
Coco if I have to.
By the way, it's tonight.
-Are you serious?
Tonight? I don't
leave my bedroom.
And we have to wear costumes.
Masks or whatever.
Fuck that.
Connor, you asked
if I needed help.
And I need help. Okay?
God, I must really love you.
No, you know what?
I love Lisa.
I'll do it for Lisa.
-I'll take it.
Can I help you, sir?
You better move along, mister,
or I'll call the police.
I said I'll call the police.
Don't you come near me.
I mean it.
Don't come near--
Don't take another
step closer to me!
- Detective Trusten James?
- Go.
This is Officer Burke
from the Deep Ridge
Falls Crime Lab.
We weren't getting anywhere
with the prints Cyphers
dropped off
in Fink's case.
We've been dealing
with individual counties
that have sub registries
that are unlisted,
but state mental institutions
keep their own records
of fingerprints on individuals
that may or may not appear
on the national registry.
When we cross referenced
with the state institutions,
we got an immediate hit.
A 100 percent match
on an inmate at Creedmoor.
You got a 100 percent match?
100 percent match.
It's Lee Morris, the Skulleton.
Lee, it's me, your sister.
All the letters I wrote...
Please, Lee, don't do this.
No more.
They don't deserve it. Okay?
Let's go. Let's get out of here.
No one even has to know
that you're here, Lee.
Come on.
I can control this
inside me, Lee.
I know the pain that you're in.
I always try my best, okay?
I can help control you.
I know you're a good person.
And I just miss you.
The old you.
Come on.
Come on.
Yes. Go.
I'm proud of you. Come on.
Come on.
We'll get through this.
Whatever she did to you,
you need to know
that you were just a child.
We were just having a fun day.
Stop beating yourself up.
You've taken this too far.
Too far.
No one deserves this.
I know you're not out there.
Come on, Lee, come on.
Look, we gotta go.
Come on. The car's close.
Come on.
I love you. Come on.
My car's right here.
I'm gonna drive
us to a new state.
He looks like the Skulleton.
- I've got you. I've got you.
- Take him out
with the knee chops.
- She could.
-Not like the dads who are out here.
They're tough competition, you know?
They're so cute.
That little
one in the unicorn?
-You're good.
-How do you do that, Lis?
-Yeah. She's got moves.
Let's do the Titanic thing.
Did you hear that, boys?
I got moves.
Give me the scoop.
How's it going?
He's a pretty handsome cowboy,
-He's all right. That one?
Oh, this old guy?
- You're still a better dancer.
- That's my man.
Oh, I don't know.
I will ever be on the ice.
Who do you think
goes down first?
Definitely Connor.
Dance with me, son.
How are you doing that?
Let's see, let's see.
Oh, dang.
That's... wow.
That was amazing.
That was so humiliating!
Oh, man, we gotta get you a bus.
She messed you up.
Come on. You should
have called me sooner.
Shut up. And get me
to Moira Cole's house.
Hey, man, let me call it in.
This is not gonna happen.
It went in and out.
I'm fine, there's no time.
Let's move.
Did you see when my legs
went out like that?
-You did great. You did great.
-You're so dumb.
-I tried.
-You tried.
Better than you.
Oh, come on.
How long did it take
you to train them
to do all that stuff?
I taught them
everything they know.
I know. That's right.
They have a great teacher.
Something's wrong.
What is it?
Mom. Nothing is wrong.
Something's off.
I did not leave
the garage light on.
Mom, you were out there
for four hours today.
-I know I did not leave it on.
I did not leave it on.
Maybe Coco triggered the sensor.
No, I would not
have turned it on.
And I didn't.
Okay, I'll check it out.
please stop.
It's okay, Moira.
We'll be fine.
I just got her back
in my life, okay?
-Please don't mess this up.
-I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, I know.
It's okay.
He's gonna check and...
it was a great night.
I'm just gonna check
something downstairs.
I'm so sick of this shit.
I'm sorry.
It's okay.
It's okay. She knows
what she's doing.
It was a great night.
-I had a lot of fun.
Me too.
You think you should
go check on her?
Yeah, I probably should.
-Go check on her.
-And then...
-Go. Go, go, go.
-All right, I'm going.
- I'll be right back.
Don't go anywhere.
Come here.
Coco, what do you got down
Not again. Not again.
I'm in the garage.
You have to put me through
to Detective Charles Cyphers.
It's Lee Morris.
He's gonna get my whole family.
Open the door! Mom!
Come on!
Goddamn it! You coward!
Open this fucking door!
What is it?
-What is it?
-It's him.
Okay, you need to
get out of the house now.
You understand me? Now!
This is Lieutenant Trusten
I need backup and a bus
at the Cole residence now.
Oh, shit.
- Drop the weapon!
- Get down on the ground!
Connor. Connor.
- Drop the weapon!
- -Get down on the ground!
Lisa! Lisa!
