Omen IV: The Awakening (1991) Movie Script

1
a beautiful baby girl.
Yes. Yes, she's just perfect.
I'll give you to sister yvonne.
She's dying to talk to you.
Mrs. York,
wait until you see her.
She's a tiny miracle.
yes. yes, of course.
Then we'll expect you.
All right. Bye.
The clouds sweep away the color.
Leaves everything like
a black and white photograph.
Tell me about the parents.
Any history of drug abuse or alcohol addiction?
Honey. We're supplying the environment,
but we're inheriting the genes,
whether the mother was traumatized during
the period of gestation.
It's all important.
You're going to be the mother
of this child, not her lawyer.
Right.
Sister, I'm so sorry.
I'm so insecure about all this,
and you know we tried so hard.
I'm just not anxious to take on
a load of problems im not prepared for.
- She has a "sins of the father thing."
- I do not.
The mother was at university
and the father was an exchange student.
Sweetheart, if there are any complications,
psychological or physical, we'll handle it.
She's got us.
My best friend's a doctor.
Besides, I play racquetball with a couple of good shrinks.
You're such a wise guy.
She's beautiful.
It's okay.
Oh, she's beautiful.
Bye, bye.
Bye.
hush, little baby don't say a word
mommy's gonna buy you a mockingbird
want to go to sleep?
Quiet, quiet.
She's beautiful!
Everybody, i'd like you to meet...
Delia.
What's she gonna sing?
Any requests? I don't know.
When she's hungry,
she can hit notes Tina Turner
hasn't thought of.
she scratched me.
Excuse me.
Doctor in the house.
Let's take a look at this.
It's nothing. You'll be all right.
I don't know what happened.
She stopped crying as soon as gene picked her up.
I don't know what I did.
Maybe this pin came undone
while you were burping her.
- What museum did we get this from?
- I take full blame.
I was the one who insisted that she go
au natural with the diapers and safety pins.
Well, I don't think it merits a law suit.
But you come see me in the morning.
Okay.
Come on. Here.
come on.
Delia, don't scratch your mommy.
You okay?
An eclipse is hardly
an event, sister yvonne.
Hardly an event?
A spontaneous eclipse?
How many spontaneous eclipses
have you seen in your life?
Don't speak to me in that fashion!
You've damned us,
cursed us with that child!
I can think of no worse curse
than the murder of a child!
We should never have been born!
Be quiet!
Dear father in heaven,
we are heartily sorry--
Quiet!
no!
I don't believe this.
yeah, well, antibiotics will stop it.
But those red marks mean serious infection,
don't they?
How can a baby's fingernail
do so much damage?
Who knows? I had a client who got athlete's foot
in the caribbean.
She almost lost her leg.
Yeah, lou, but this--
Karen, I'm a doctor.
I've seen every conceivable type
of infection, believe me.
On a scale of one to ten,
this is a big two.
The good news is, you got your baby!
Yeah. No more testing.
Isn't that a relief?
- Just my annual pap smear.
- That's right.
I just don't get it.
Gene and I have been tested.
We're both okay. I should've been pregnant
a dozen times by now.
Karen, that happens to lots of couples.
Three times a day.
Thank you. what made you and Gene decide
on the name "Delia"?
It's a pretty name, isn't it?
beautiful.
It means "always visible"
in greek.
Besides, I had an aunt Delia...
Who was the first woman in our hometown
to run for office.
Thought it might be
a good-luck name as well.
Oh, yeah? Grooming her for office?
it's a family tradition.
now sanctify this water...
That your servants who are washed in it
may become one...
With christ's death and resurrection,
to be cleansed and delivered from sin.
Anoint them with your holy spirit,
that they may be born again in your church,
that they may become inheritors
of your glorious kingdom.
Delia, I baptize you...
in the name of the father, the son,
and the holy spirit.
give her to me.
They say that a child that
cries is closer to god.
there you go.
Right there.
Yes, Delia!
Isn't that beautiful?
boo! Yeah.
Say "hi."
Hi, daddy.
Whoops.
Don't you look pretty!
smile nice, Mr. Congressman.
Drop your drawers for capitol hill.
sure was convenient...
That somebody took that picture of resnick
in the motel room.
Who cares who took it? someone nailed
the incumbent.
Resnick is a crook and whoremonger.
Those photographs will bury him.
You've had six weeks to think about it.
What do you say?
- Why do you want me to run, jake?
- fishing.
For answers, not compliments.
You know what I stand for.
How many hours have you spent complaining
to me about the bungling bureaucracy...
And how you'd change things?
A couple thousand at least.
Now is the time to put some muscle where your mouth is.
a lot of us agree with you...
And think they all ought to take their sweet deals,
perks and bulging pensions,
and take a hike.
You're young. You don't need the money.
You come from a political family.
You've got the looks, the brains.
everything that spells voter appeal.
I said, no compliments.
that was the downside.
wait till you hear what I like about you.
Gene York, popular virginia legislator,
has announced he will run for congress
for the 14th district seat...
Now held by the scandal-ridden Graham Resnick.
Exit polls at this time indicate...
that Gene York should win the 14th district
by an unprecedented majority.
You've got a meeting
with noland tomorrow at 2:00.
Congressman Gene York, new
chair of the finance committee,
has been fighting for
the homeless relief bill.
look over there, Jake.
look at this.
She almost took the head clean off!
She's real rough on prom queens.
I'll find you behind a tree
Delia!
Delia, this isn't funny!
Delia.
Delia!
Delia!
Delia!
Delia, come out now, please.
Delia!
Delia!
No! no!
Delia!
Look what you've done, you dumb dog!
No, no, no!
He saved my daughter's life.
Are you okay, baby?
Are you okay?
Yeah?
He's been bathed, had his shots.
All checked out.
He's fine.
She adores him.
He adores her.
Okay, okay.
he'd be good protection for her too.
congressman gene york kicked off
his reelection campaign...
By issuing a renewed pledge for
the plight of the disadvantaged.
The popular virginia congressman
continues to lead all polls.
I think we should
get one thing clear.
You guys don't know
what you're doing.
there's a witch who lives
on top of that tower.
Anyone who has the courage
to climb that ladder,
will be granted any wish they want.
I could do it if I wanted to.
- You're afraid of heights.
- No, I'm not.
I'm not talking to you, Jerome.
Miss Norris!
What is going on?
But he hit her! her lip was cut.
I've heard enough!
If he did, she probably deserved it.
She spit at him. bit him so hard
his hand swelled up.
You've got a psycho
for a daughter.
And you, Mr. Congressman,
see what happens next election.
Mr. Creighton, I never bow to threats.
Please leave before I lose my temper.
What a first-class jerk.
Do you suppose it happened...
The way Delia told us it happened?
Sure.
Why not?
Hi, sweetheart.
Hi, daddy.
Tell me.
Exactly what kind of problems have you
been having with this boy at school?
He's always doing something to me.
Calling me names or hitting me.
Are you sure you didn't start it?
He started it by putting his
gum in my hair that very first day.
I know.
I remember.
How about doing your dad a big favor,
and staying far away from him?
That whole family is trouble.
Daddy, there won't be
any trouble.
That's my girl.
I promise.
Can you identify this one for me?
Killer whale!
And where does it go?
That's perfect. You got it. We're finished.
Recess. Thank you.
hey!
gimme my watch back!
Give it back!
- Don't you dare!
- You're so brave, come get it!
I'm gonna tell Miss norris.
"I'm gonna tell Miss Norris."
You big crybaby.
Come on, Jerome!
Teacher!
I warned you about this,
but no, you're not gonna pay attention.
That kid is trouble!
I mean it!
You'll hear from me.
Look at the children. They
don't pay any attention to her.
- She still hasn't made friends.
- Some kids take more time.
- Besides, she's more mature than most.
- Yeah.
She still needs friends, though.
There you go. Melissa?
Alex, you'll be next.
Here you go.
Alex?
Paul? come on.
Are you sure he's gentle?
I mean, it's her first time on a horse.
Honey, it's a first day
for all of us.
Delia?
Hi, honey.
Let's go, Delia.
Delia!
Delia! Don't move her.
I'll get help.
it looks like you're gonna be
our guest for a while, Delia.
Hi, sweetheart.
What is it?
Let's talk outside.
Be right back, honey.
Thank you.
What?
You can relax. There's no sign
of internal bleeding,
but I'm gonna run a couple tests
and take some x rays.
Aside from a few bruises
and maybe a slight concussion--
Thank god.
I still don't understand
why that horse bolted.
That happens sometimes, gene.
Especially when a child...
Is becoming a woman.
- What?
Delia started menstruating.
What? That's impossible.
She's only eight years old.
It's not impossible.
It's rare, but it's not impossible.
I'll help you explain it to her
if you want.
Yeah. you look tired, karen.
you can afford some help.
She's old enough.
Do it.
So sorry to have kept you waiting.
It's okay.
I just got off the phone with the agency.
They gave you a four-star rating.
They like to recommend me
for special families.
Special families?
Families with special needs.
I like a challenge.
Well, welcome to the olympics.
come up.
I want you to meet Delia.
That's ryder. He's friendly.
Delia?
- I'd like you to meet Miss Thueson.
- Jo. Please call me Jo.
Short for Josephine.
First names are more friendly.
Hello.
Hi, there, Delia.
What's this?
That's a healing crystal.
Isn't that pretty?
Come on, I'll show you
to your room.
I'm not anti-business, Jake.
But I'm not gonna let you pave over parks
with concrete eyesores.
You cripple construction,
you cripple the country.
The only reason you campaigned for me is
so you could have a connection on the hill.
I don't deserve that.
You've gotten greedy.
You're trying to turn me
into what we both hated.
Good boy, Ryder.
Yeah.
Good boy.
Come on.
come on, Ryder.
They grow like that?
They grow with points?
The book of light.
That's all about healing
and crystals.
And stupid junk!
I'm going out to play.
Delia, come back here.
No, it's okay, Mrs. York.
Let her get used to me a little.
She'll get used to you after she apologizes.
Excuse me.
Delia!
They're all black!
Noah, can you come over?
I need to talk.
You feel it too?
Tightening in the throat?
Yeah.
Ever since I got here.
Energy's real low.
Look at my palms.
Is that the girl?
Yeah.
What do you get from her?
Anything?
Very weird.
It's more like a--
It's more like a muddy pool than an aura.
It's like mud and molasses.
Swirls of red paint.
Does that mean what I think it does?
a very negative life force.
Red means violence.
She's got a violent streak, all right.
Swirled together like that,
it means rage and chaos.
Is she dangerous?
Why don't you get her
on my turf?
Bring her to the fair.
Let others see her.
That was my plan.
Why don't you get out?
I'll see you at the fair.
Are you all right?
Yeah.
your creepy friend
almost caused an accident.
Was he drunk?
No, Mrs. York.
He was sick.
You saw him, Delia.
He was sweating, he could hardly
catch his breath.
Maybe he was sick.
Jo said she saw what?
She saw an inverted cross on the mirror.
I'm sure there's some explanation for it.
You can handle it.
I know I can handle it.
I just wanted to talk to you about it.
I've got a committee meeting.
I've gotta go.
you saw the cross yourself.
No, I don't know.
I don't know anything anymore.
I'm tired.
I know you're tired.
That's why I'm here.
I understand kids.
They just want to fit in.
Let me take her out this weekend,
just the two of us.
There's a psychic fair.
Psychic fair. psychic fair?
I don't know. I don't want Delia
getting involved in anything strange.
There's nothing strange
about metaphysics and new thought.
It's very positive.
She'll be one up on her friends.
She doesn't have any friends.
Maybe she'll make new friends.
Okay.
Okay.
Thank you.
Let's go.
Oh, look.
Have a cup.
I see a face.
He's a very important man,
and I'm sure he will be--
I feel a strong aura emanating--
Okay, here's what we've got.
This should help you interpret it.
No. no.
You're a dancer, many lifetimes.
Ballet. Not here, abroad.
Europe? Netherlands?
Belgium.
What? what? What is it?
Very nice.
Thank you.
Enjoy the fair.
Thank you.
- What's this place?
- Noah and a couple of friends.
Let's get our picture taken.
What are you doing? I thought it
would be fun to get our picture taken.
No, you didn't!
oh, my god.
It's just like I saw it.
This isn't an aura.
It's like an infection.
Pestilence.
Look how it's spread over jo.
Noah, these colors, or lack of,
of sepia and black--
This is the aura of a Borgia,
not a little girl.
No!
- Delia, wait!
- Leave me alone! leave me alone!
Come on!
Does anyone know how the fire started?
No.
Do you know what a kirlian photograph is?
No.
It photographs auras.
Jo was given--
One of these photographs was taken of her
and Delia at the psychic fair.
I don't believe
in any of that stuff.
What does that have
to do with the fire?
Even if you don't believe
in that stuff, there's other stuff.
Like lying, accusations
about... Dual behavior.
Delia behaves differently in front of
other people than she does in front of us.
You're still not answering my question.
What does this have to do with the fire?
What I'm trying to say is...
Jo says that Delia...
Is a very powerful personality.
Like "carrie setting fire
to the prom"...
Powerful?
Karen,
would you give me
a major break here?
Shame on you for buying into that crap
and letting others judge the child you have.
What is the matter with your vision?
Anyway, I'm committed
to having jo stay.
She's determined
to get through to delia,
and I want her to try again.
I understand the guys have patched things up.
Yeah.
Thank God. Jake
flew up to meet him.
He just got carried away
with having a friend in a high place.
He helped put Gene there.
Are you talking about daddy?
My daddy's going to be president.
No, I ordered the red.
I ordered the red.
Are you sure there's enough seating for 200?
Watch out for the ferns!
Go. Delia's alone.
This is a chance for us to talk.
Just pack up and come with me.
I can't, Noah.
You have the photograph.
You're sharing her aura.
Everything she touches turns to illness.
The tone below illness is death!
For heaven's sake,
she's just a little girl.
What were you doing?
Meditating.
Asking for guidance.
I just want to help you, delia.
If you'll just help me to understand.
What?
About what happened
at the psychic fair...
And other things.
About the trouble with the kids at school,
starting with kindergarten.
I know they were
unkind to you there.
Yes.
Jerome teased me.
He stuck gum in my hair,
kicked in my lunch pail. He hit me.
Is that why you hurt him?
I didn't hurt him.
He was a sissy.
And then his father was killed
in that terrible accident.
How did you feel about that?
I don't know.
In my bathroom, the cross?
Upside down?
Do you know what that means?
Yes.
- Who taught that to you?
- My father.
Your father taught you that?
My father... Is your father.
I don't-- I don't understand.
What's the matter with you?
why did you do that?
What evil made you do that?
Mrs. York! Mrs. York!
Mrs. York!
Mrs. York!
Mrs. York! Mrs. York!
Jo! Jo dead. Dead.
Relax, relax, Karen.
Relax. Just let go.
Let go.
That's right.
That's right.
Good.
Sorry. She's, uh--
She's okay.
What, Lou?
I think Karen may be pregnant.
What?
We've sedated her.
He told us if we stopped trying
you might get pregnant. I know, but--
But what? We were both tested,
and there was nothing wrong.
There was a 50-50 chance
you'd get pregnant, and you did.
Now, be happy.
I am happy.
I'm just not going
to let anything happen.
What could happen?
I don't know.
I gotta go. Have a good one.
Bye.
Have a good day.
Mrs. York!
You should've seen her face.
She doesn't want me
to have this baby.
Karen, come on.
How can you say something like that?
She wouldn't try to hurt you.
You said yourself, it's just a game.
Children just don't know
when to stop.
I think you're just--
I think you're nervous--
Oh, that's gonna be an umbrella excuse for
whatever I'm feeling over the next five months.
I can see it coming.
Gene!
Our daughter isn't sacrosanct.
Every time her odd behavior is mentioned,
you get defensive.
Her behavior is not odd.
Lou told you.
When children no longer feel the center of
attention, they do outrageous things.
That's what happened.
I had a serious talk with her.
She promised she wouldn't do it again.
There's all kinds of things.
Jo's book of light.
She flashed it at me at the window
like she wanted me to see it.
I found it in the bushes. parts are underlined,
making references to bible passages.
In it was a photograph of Jo and Delia
at the psychic fair.
- Karen--
- It was a kirlian photograph.
Gene, please listen to me!
I talked to the man
who took it. He was a friend of Jo's.
It photographs auras.
Honey, come on!
Don't you think it's odd our daughter
has never had any childhood illnesses?
Not necessarily.
She obviously has a strong immune system.
Strong immune system.
Friends, friends.
She has no friends.
Don't you think that's odd?
Yes, I know that's odd,
but I didn't have any friends too.
I was an only child,
and I turned out okay.
Karen, look.
I'll keep my eyes open.
I'll be on the lookout.
If I see anything strange,
anything at all, I'll deal with it.
We'll deal with it together?
us.
Come on.
Delia?
Come on! time to go.
Doctor says, "you're pregnant."
she says, "i want a second opinion."
He says, "okay, you're ugly."
One of the niceties I miss about
having dinner is saying grace.
Delia, do you remember
that simple prayer...
Of thanks I taught you?
no.
Sure you do.
Thank you, lord,
for thy bountiful gifts--
I don't remember it!
Audible prayers can
sometimes be embarrassing.
- Let's vote against it, huh?
- Not everything is up for a vote, gene.
Oh, you must be Mrs. York.
Hello. Father mattson?
Yes. How do you do? Congratulations.
Thank you.
I'm six months.
Father, I need your advice.
I want to know if you're familiar...
With this new age book.
Please, let's go inside.
Thank you.
There are several bible
references in this book.
One of them is from revelations.
Right here. Ah, yes.
"and he stood on the sand
of the seashore--"
where is it? "and I saw a beast
coming up out of the sea,
"having ten horns and seven heads.
"and on his horns were ten diadems.
And on his heads
were blasphemous names."
The book of revelations will be argued
until the apocalypse.
Please.
But we believe the beast
to be the antichrist.
In god's eyes, that's exactly what he is:
a beast.
The ten horns are a confederation
of ten nations.
And the seven heads are the seven leaders who
will give him their allegiance.
They form an alliance
with the antichrist.
So, it's about politics?
There's nothing that isn't
politics, Mrs. York.
Look around us.
We're ushering in the antichrist to
a world of overpopulation,
pollution, crime.
Our hell is his paradise.
We brought this on ourselves?
we helped usher him in?
This is crazy.
We're just speaking
figuratively here, right?
Whatever makes you comfortable.
But, yes, you're right, we are ushering him in.
That part of us that is the worst of us,
is what gives him his power.
You're saying we're all in league
with the devil?
Most of us unknowingly, of course,
but there are others.
What do you mean? what others?
Leaders who plunder the treasuries
of their poor countries,
trashing their own people,
driving them into famine, hopelessness, disease.
Men who pave over forests
that provide the very air we breathe.
These are the true apostates, the ones
laying out the red carpet for the antichrist.
You do believe
the antichrist will come?
Yes, I do.
"uttering haughty and blasphemous words,
and allowed to exercise authority
for 42 months."
- That's all it'll take?
- A politician can do a lot of harm in 42 months.
This man will be a terrible,
charismatic liar.
Millions are gonna believe in his one world,
one religion.
Do you think he can be stopped?
I'd pack it in if I didn't.
We all do what we can, right?
Yes, father.
Yes, we all do what we can.
Hi, honey.
Is your mother home?
She's across the street.
Let me leave you something
for your mother to read.
ladies, excuse me. I live in this house.
What happened?
I only said hello.
We handed her a pamphlet.
You didn't scare her?
With a smile?
That little girl, the things she said!
I've never heard language like that!
She tore up the pamphlet,
and then threatened us with your dog.
Please, just wait here.
I'll get you some money.
- You get to your room right now!
- Why? I didn't--
Don't argue with me!
go!
Delia? What happened?
They scared me.
They said the world was gonna end,
and that I was a sinner
who was going to burn to death...
Unless I do what they say.
That's just not true.
Yes, it is.
Those end-of-the-world zealots
have been around since I was a kid.
They scared the hell out of me.
I had nightmares for a week.
That's not what happened.
mommy,
you weren't even there.
You did it again.
you found an excuse.
Way back in your childhood,
you found a corollary with what happened today.
She told us what happened.
It never occurred to you
that she might not
be telling the truth?
No, karen, it never occurred to me.
I should guess you're
about eight months along.
Oh, about eight months, two days,
and 12 hours and 23 minutes.
You have no idea what happened
to sister Yvonne?
She chose a secular life.
That's all I can tell you.
No contact at all?
None.
Forwarding address?
I don't think so.
There's something wrong,
isn't there?
I'll see if I can find some address
that might help you.
Great.
Reverend mother?
Do you think it's possible...
For a child to be born evil?
A child is not born evil.
It's the world it's born into...
That's filled with evil.
- But you believe in original sin?
- Yes.
But there are degrees of sin.
To what degree it will be manifested...
Depends on how close we come to god.
Then the idea of an evil seed--
God wouldn't create something evil!
Man does that for him.
Gene? Come help me!
Gene!
Gene!
What's wrong?
I can't get up.
I feel like the goodyear blimp.
Couldn't say "no" to that ice cream,
could you?
He kidnapped his kid.
he jumped bail, and snatched the boy.
Don't give me that. the bastard
doesn't give a damn about his kid!
He's holding the boy hostage.
You bet!
And you tell your slimy client
that he's in bounty country now.
And I'm gonna bag him, field dress him,
slam him across the hood of my car...
Like a gutted moose, and drop him
on the steps of the county jail!
I'm partial to Chinese.
Charlie Chan's my hero.
I never saw a pregnant lawyer before.
You know courtrooms,
you look away for a second and...
With a sense of humor.
My friend forrey riggs
told me about you.
Lawyer. Black. Very smart.
Wife's a teacher. Yeah, I remember.
I went on a dig for him.
He says you dig pretty good.
Sit down.
I'd like you to do
some investigative work for me.
I play Paul Drake
to your Perry Mason?
No, I gave up my practice
long ago.
Congressman Resnick.
Graham Resnick!
Oh, yeah.
I enjoyed taking him down.
Yeah, my husband got his job.
I know who you are.
Your husband's pretty clean.
He's a good guy.
Tell him to keep it that way.
Why did you choose Resnick
as your target?
Citizen's action committee
contacted me.
Huh. Could you tell me
who was on the committee?
My fee is three hundred a day,
plus expenses.
I want you to find someone for me.
Missing persons is most
of my business.
The baby in this photograph
is our adopted daughter.
I want you to find her parents.
The young novice is sister yvonne.
I have an address for her.
I'm not sure that it's good.
This photograph was taken years ago
at st. Francis orphanage.
There's more. there's so much more.
There's a rash of things
that have happened over the years.
A kirlian photograph that was taken
by a psychic. Noah.
I can get you his last name.
It started with the baptism.
There was a terrible accident with father hayes.
Then there was Jo.
Slow down, slow down.
I'm so sorry.

Hell of a world, huh?

I have told you all I can, Mr. Knight.
The law prevents me from giving you the names
of delia's biological parents.
Mrs. York already told you
they were a young couple at the university...
Who got careless.

two clowns to perform?
Of course not!

Excuse me a moment, Mr. Knight.

Never known a child
so interested in politics.

It's beautiful, honey.
I came home early today.

Graham Resnick and the hooker.
You know who set him up?
do you? Jacob Millican.
How'd you find out?
a little detective work.
on your own?
I had a little professional help.
Excuse me, excuse me.
have you seen this young woman?
Yeah, she used to come in here.
Don't look like that anymore, though.
We all get older.
Heavy drinkin' and turning tricks don't help.
Where is she now?
What are you, a cop?

"was" don't cut it, pal.
Only birdies sing for free.
What does 20 bucks get me?

Going straight to hell, pal.
Oh, yeah.

Eh, I had to dump her.
She got religion again, huh?
No, she starts for

Becomes a prophet.
Calls herself felicity.
Now she has a cult in north carolina.
I don't know where.
But, I'll tell you this.
She does better than me now.
Eh!
Okay.
Just tell me what this means.
All right, all right.
The young couple existed.
But they're not
your daughter's parents.
They both died in the 1930s.
They didn't even know each other.
What? You've got sister yvonne,
a nun who became a hooker.
And now some kind of hellfire prophet
with a cult.
She goes by the name of felicity.
I tracked her down...
To a small town in north carolina.
Thought maybe I'd go
and share her vision.
What about noah?
Disappeared after Jo's death.

Are you all right?
Just get me to my car.
Come on. This way.

Get me to the hospital.
Come on.
She tried to kill my baby.

Your baby's fine. Delia couldn't
have anything to do with this, could she?
Don't be silly. Let's
give you a healthy baby.
That was 50 seconds.
You did great. Huh?
hi.
You okay?
I'm okay.
It's all arranged. I'm sending a lady over
to help take care of delia.
She's an ex-nurse. Her name is Miss Roselli.
That's great, and thanks.
Who are you?
This is the anesthesiologist.
No! No anesthesia.
Just in case.
No! no!
No! God! Slow it down.

Come on.
Push! Push!
That's it.
Push! Atta girl.
There we go.
my friends, I see that for a soul...
To be truly cleansed,
to be truly purified,
that soul must first be tainted...
By the soiled touch of the devil.
Say "Hallelujah!"
Hallelujah!
Say "Hallelujah!"
Hallelujah!
Now rise with me, my friends.
Rise. And welcome our sister, felicity,
who is our own angel.
Dropped from the arms
of her mother church...
Into the very pit of hell!
She has ascended!
She has been cleansed!
Say "Hallelujah!"
- Praise god!
- Praise god!
My friends, my friends.
Be seated. Be seated.
And hear with me the inspired words
of our sister, felicity.
Faith in the source, I enter the pit
of damnable sin!
- Say,"hallelujah!"
- Hallelujah!
The sting of those lecherous angels god
banished from his kingdom cannot hurt me.
Because I have the source
to lead me.
Praise god!
It is only through
a demonstration of faith...
The source can deem us worthy...
Of surviving the final battle!
Praise!
Praise God!
Hallelujah!
Praise god!
Help her, Jesus.
Come.
Who shall take up serpents?
Melissa, you will be saved!
Hallelujah!

I will pray for her.
I will pray for your wife.

Do not be afraid.
Fangs of the serpent
cannot hurt us.
Because our faith is strong!
Hallelujah.
Prayers be heard.

I'll have someone move you to recovery.

She'll be home soon.
Good afternoon.
I'm Lisa Roselli.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Your wife is well?
- Yes. We had a baby boy.
And you have a little brother.
Congratulations.
Thank you.
Delia? Just a little jealousy.
Delia?
We spoke briefly, Delia and I.
She's perfect.
Beautiful and very smart.
Miss Roselli,
I want you to do me a favor.
If there's any behavior
of delia's that you find odd,
I want you to tell me at once.
My wife's not to know anything.
I don't want to upset her, okay?
Of course.
The new weatherman
must be named scrooge...
Because all holiday traffic in and out of
charlotte airport has stopped because of fog.
So here to help pass the time

You see, sir?
Not anybody is leaving today.
Ah, do you have
a large envelope, please?
and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled
joyful all ye nations rise
join the triumph of the skies
with angelic hosts proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
hark the herald angels sing
glory to the newborn king
Christ by highest heaven adored
veiled in flesh the godhead see
hail the incarnate deity
oh!
Delia?
Honey, listen. Everything's okay.
Alexander is proof of that.
You're right.
I'll be good.
is that Lisa? Miss Roselli.
let's keep it formal this time.
This is Miss Roselli.
Hello. Hi, sweetie.
No wipes, okay.
Okay.
What are you doing?
What's this?
That's, uh,
Alexander's milk.
Don't mothers nurse their babies?
Sometimes. don't you wanna nurse
Alexander?
Of course.
Excuse me.
Sometimes a mother's milk
doesn't have enough nutrients.
Why?
careful, Delia.
You don't wanna wake him, do you?
Um, hello?
Can I speak to Earl Knight, please?
oh! Are you a relative?
Why?
Well, this sort of thing
is kinda, you know, it's kinda tough to--
Yeah, I'm his sister.
oh!
I'm so sorry.
Your brother died
in a freak accident.
What? I couldn't believe it.
We had two strange deaths
in one day.
Your brother at
the construction site.
And then a preacher woman of snakebites.
Oh, it was a bad day.
Alexander's doing fine.
He's with lisa.
She's a real godsend.
Did you know that sister Yvonne died?
You're kidding?
No, I'm not kidding.
Snakebite.
Freak accident.
That's terrible.
Lot of deaths lately.
real epidemic of strange deaths.
Detective I hired died.
Freak accident.
Karen, those things happen.
It's called coincidence.
Look, I've been doing
some thinking.
And I think it might be a good idea
to get away. do some traveling.
I can't now.
Fine.
Not now, later.
Go to europe. Eventually we could put
the kids in international school.
Uh-huh. Where?
- Rome would be nice.
- Rome.
Where are you going?
Huh? Oh.
I'm gonna... Go check on Alexander.
Here.
"and I saw the Beast
coming out of the sea."
Good morning.
Where are you going?
Your appointment with Lou isn't till 11:00.
I'm gonna run some errands.
On the phone.
Sorry. Didn't mean
to keep you waiting.
Let's go somewhere more quiet, shall we?
And somewhere, I think it's in Daniel,
it talks about the fourth kingdom.
What is there about the fourth kingdom
that frightens you so much?
here it is.
"thus he spoke.
"as for the fourth beast, there shall be
a fourth kingdom here on earth,
"and it shall be different
from all the kingdoms...
And it shall devour
the whole earth."
This fourth kingdom is where
the antichrist comes from. Yeah.
Does he have to be born there?
No, not necessarily.
Where is the fourth kingdom?
Rome.
Rome.
Rome.
He said, "travel to rome."
so--
- So, it could mean, "educated in rome."
- Yes.
Father, the antichrist
is always spoken of as a "he."
Well, the bible didn't mean to be sexist.
Mankind can also mean womankind.
Womankind. Womankind.
Uh, father, could I be left alone here
for a few minutes?
Oh, yes, of course.
Hi.
well, gene tells me
you got a case of the icks.
Yeah?
I beg your pardon?
you know, feeling icky.
After a couple false alarms
and then finally you becoming a mother.
Oh, my god!
I want answers.
it's all here.
You're not mentioned, but the pieces fit.
All about Delia.
Her father. Who is Damien Thorn?
In the diary it says he's the antichrist.
Yes, yes. It's true!
Damien. He's the whole, Karen.
Damien is the power!
Tell me about Delia.
She's Damien's daughter.
She carried his seed.
When did you know this?
We've always known.
We've been waiting ever since his death.
What is this fetus papyraceous?
what is it?
Fetus papyraceous.
ah, it's one twin able to carry...
The embryo of its twin
inside if it's a female.
Just waiting to be implanted.
Alexander is Delia's twin.
She carried her twin inside her
until you removed it.
When? When I examined her, after
she fell off the horse.
You implanted it in me...
When you examined me
after Jo's death.
You made me a surrogate for Delia's brother,
you son of a bitch!
Why Gene? Is Gene in on this too?
Gene? No!
But we need him.
He will become a very important
political figure.
Of course. Of course.
It's all about politics,
isn't it?
Forty-two months
and it'll all be over.
Wrong, Karen.
It'll just be starting.
Jake Millican is in on this too.
What happened, Lou?
Did he get greedy?
started thinking in the short term?
No, he's back with the program now.
It's gonna be a new world.
Gene will usher in our king.
One man. One religion.
That freak will never rule...
'cause I'm gonna kill him!
Of course.
You're one of them too.
no!
I want to see my son.
Yes, mother. See him.
Really see him.
