Chambers (2019) s01e08 Episode Script

Heroic Dose

1 [thunder rumbling] [explosion, glass shattering] Fuck.
What the hell? [TJ] Somebody! I need help.
Somebody, help me, please! Anybody! No.
I already told you I don't even know what that means.
She was breathing heavy, she was clutching her chest.
Now she's not breathing at all.
Hey, I know CPR, can I? - No, no.
I'm still here.
- Hey! If I don't do CPR on her right now and get her blood circulating, she's going to die.
Fuck.
[EMT, muffled] Her pulse is weak but there.
[heartbeat echoing] [siren wailing] [woman] Sasha.
Don't, Sasha! I'm not gonna let her take me over.
You have a better shot of remembering what Becky forgot - if you do it in the same place, right? - I don't even know where that is.
I do.
X marks the spot.
I've been seeing that everywhere.
What is it? Gar.
Symbol of sacrifice and dignity.
And it has to do with Becky how? It was the mantra at last year's Spring Equinox party, at the Annex.
When's the next one? Never thought I'd be at one of these things again.
I can do it on my own.
Let you steal all the glory? No way.
Hey.
Come on.
[indistinct chatter] Sasha Do you really want to do this? If I can just see what made Becky bad then maybe I can stop it from happening to me.
[man] Excuse me, sir.
- Can I offer you a drink? - [Elliot] Oh, thanks.
- Just in time.
- [man] My pleasure.
Have a good evening.
Make sure I don't do anything dumb.
I think I already failed at that, but I'll be here.
I just want to be fucking free.
[echoing] What does that mean? [distorted audio] [distorted heartbeat] [bell chimes] [Sasha grunts] Marnie? Penelope? [laughter] [woman 1] You're not Becky.
- [woman 2] Freak.
- [woman 3] What is that? - Get off of me! Stop! - [woman] Your mom didn't even like you.
No one wants to play with you.
- Really, Sasha? - [woman 3] You are so ugly.
[Sasha screams] [Sasha] Elliot.
Don't, Sasha! - I'm not going to let her take me over.
- You have a better chance of remembering what Becky forgot if you do it in the same place, right? Come here.
Gar.
Symbol of sacrifice and dignity.
I've been seeing that everywhere.
And it has to deal with Becky how? [sighs] It was the mantra at last year's Spring Equinox party at the Annex.
Becky might not remember it at first, but I'll never forget it.
It's where I got dosed up with heroin for the first time.
By who? I don't know.
I was doing coke but so was Ravi and Marnie.
But I was the only one who ended up with a DUI.
I was the only one who ended up addicted.
I was also the only one who woke up with voices in my head.
At first I thought it was the heroin calling me.
What if it was Becky? Never thought I'd be at one of these again.
Hey.
Come on.
You ever do DMT? No, that shit scares even me.
- Could you give this to the boy in green? - Sure.
Excuse me, sir.
Can I offer you a drink? Oh, thanks.
- Just in time.
- My pleasure.
Have a good evening.
Make sure I don't do anything dumb.
I think I already failed with that.
But I'll be here.
I just want to be fucking free.
What do you mean? Sasha? [Becky] Elliot! [glass shattering] I'm sorry, Elliot.
She has to die.
[distorted speech] Nancy! Nancy? Nancy! - I'm so sorry.
- That's okay.
It's my son.
Elliot.
What's gotten into you? - What's gotten into you? - That's the guy! Elliot? Elliot! Look at me! - I need your help.
- Damn it, Elliot.
You're high.
- Where's your father? - Sasha Sasha is Becky.
What happened? She she was Becky.
They are the same.
She talked to me.
She threatened Sasha.
See? She keeps turning into Becky.
- I told you.
I told you.
- Elliot.
- You are just sick right now, Elliot.
- Nancy, you have to do something.
You have to help me to get Becky out of Sasha.
Don't move.
I'll be right back.
[Becky] Elliot.
How are they supposed to help Sasha? [Nancy] They're here for you.
I know it doesn't seem like it, but you'll be safe No.
away from what made you do this, what's triggering you.
Triggering me? No.
You don't believe me? They were the ones.
They were the ones who dosed me, I swear.
[echoing] It's always someone else's fault.
[Nancy] Enough lies.
You took drugs and gave Sasha drugs.
- You could've killed her.
- What? - Let's go.
- Hey.
No! - It's alright.
- No! - Get off me! - Alright.
- [Nancy] I need to tell Ben.
- [Evan] I'll find him.
[Elliot] Nancy.
How could you not help me? Help Sasha? You gave me no choice.
Please, Mom.
They can help you get clean again.
- Mom.
- Come on.
No! No! Mom! Mom, help me! [rhythmic pounding] [indistinct whispering overlapping] [woman] This is a really important day for TJ.
- Sasha! - You ruined it.
- Listen to me.
She's never gonna be - You brought this here.
- Go! - Just leave.
I can see Becky inside of you.
No, no, no! [screaming] Sasha.
Who are you? As a neophyte, we want you to enjoy all the Annex has to offer.
You should stay for the Equinox party.
I've actually got to help a friend, so How generous.
One with the greater good.
Oh, thanks.
I mean With gratitude.
With grace and gratitude.
Yeah, all that.
Tomorrow, can you show me the clinic? It's on the south side, right? Everyone I ask won't tell me exactly where it is, so It's because it's not a clinic with doctors.
We have specialists.
They help us not to see things as they are, but to see them as we are.
You're shitting me, right? For privacy purposes, that part of the Annex is off limits.
Got it.
Why were you interested? That friend I'm trying to find someone to alleviate her pain.
Regular doctors just aren't cutting it.
I've actually never been, But my healer, Deacon, swears it turned his life around.
He got out of prison addicted to drugs.
Your healer was addicted to drugs? Was.
[both chuckle lightly] - Alright, thanks.
- Bye.
Bye.
[both gasp] Oh, I'm so sorry.
No, it's my fault.
Are you okay? Yeah.
Hey, do I know you? I don't know My mother says I'm hard to forget, so Oh, well.
My mistake.
- Thanks.
- Yeah, my pleasure.
[Ben] Where is he? Where's my son? Marnie confirmed that you took him.
[Ruth] You shouldn't have spoken to her that way.
You know her place here.
I don't care about Marnie or anybody else.
I want to know where Elliot is.
Elliot is detoxing because he got high and he got her high.
[Ben] I don't believe you.
Well, go find Nancy.
Because she's the one who asked Evan for help, and he told Marnie to find you.
[Ben] No, this is you.
[Ruth] Why are you covering for him? You're shielding him from the consequences of his destructive behavior.
Which is enabling him.
This is on you, Benjamin.
[car beeps] I've got to get back to the party.
- [Ben] Back to your sycophants? - Be mindful.
You are one too.
With grace and gratitude.
Fuck grace and gratitude.
I'm going to go see my son.
[sighs] Ben Lefevre.
Not too one with the greater good, are you? [voicemail] Sasha's not here, bye.
Sasha, where are you? I've called you like ten times.
Look, I promise I'm not mad.
I think I have a way to help you.
Call me back.
[man] Come on.
[crickets chirping, coyote howling] Hey, Sash.
Big Frank? Hello? - Hello? - [barking] [gasps, panting] Was that a A coyote? It was lying on Sasha's bed.
Left a dead bird on her pillow.
Something's wrong with Sasha.
Now you finally believe us, Big Frank? Help me move this.
I gotcha.
TJ, what are you doing here? After we talked, I went to my medicine man.
He said we have to help Sasha.
My dad said the same thing after Sasha went to visit him.
I never heard him so scared.
But after seeing that coyote in her room, I get it.
The Annex Foundation.
The hippies? Look, I've been working there lately and I think they can help us.
You were supposed to infiltrate, not drink the Kool-Aid.
I don't trust any one of those meditative little fucks.
- Or the Lefevres.
- Me neither.
Yeah, the Lefevres aren't as zen as I thought they were either, but Look, check out this information I found.
[rattling, keys jangle] It's crazy, I What the? Huh? What's wrong? There was an extra CD in my bag.
"Opening the heart chakra.
" That girl! She must have slipped this in my bag.
Wait, where's Sasha's computer? Come on.
Gotcha.
[woman] Open your Heart Chakra and begin the voyage within.
Welcome to the Annex Foundation seven-part series.
A guided tour through the most hidden part of your soul.
Guys? It's clear.
- Yeah, but what's that god-awful smell? - There's something up here.
I'm too big to get to it, which means one of you two has got to go up.
Really? [Frank] Be careful! Let us know what you find up there.
Oh.
[coughs] What? [Frank] What's going on up there? Yvonne! Guys These mice looks like somebody's been eating them.
What? [thump] [Yvonne screaming] [gasps] [birds chirping] [thunder crashes] [loud thunder crash] [rock song playing on radio] [shower running] Sasha.
[child crying] Mama? [screams] [woman] Mom.
[Ben] Nance? Up here.
- [chuckles] What is it? - It's Elliot.
He went to the Spring Equinox.
With Sasha.
- Well, that's not a good place for him.
- For any of us.
Just because he went there, it doesn't mean Ruth and Evan can put him in the Detox Center without our permission.
Not unless he does something stupid.
He wouldn't.
- He's been clean, right? - As far as I know.
Then why do they think he needs to go there in the first place? They believe that having Sasha in the house will cause him to relapse.
Could they be right? Maybe.
If he's noticed what we've noticed.
If he's seen it, he needs to know he's not alone.
It's not too late to tell him.
It's not.
Nancy.
Marnie.
Have you seen Elliot? - No.
- Excuse me.
It's amazing how well Sasha's fit into your family's big open slot.
We didn't replace Becky.
You were always jealous of her.
Now you're jealous of Sasha? Oh, Nancy.
There was never anything to be jealous of with Becky until last year.
You raised a mediocre girl, who blossomed because of us, and Sasha will do the same.
Watch yourself, young lady.
Or what? What do you mean, "us"? Evan.
Oh, Nancy.
 You startled me.
There's no reason for us to send Elliot away.
Please stop harassing Ben about it.
You took Elliot out of rehab too soon.
- His sister died.
- And now he's relapsing.
He's been seen at parties at his drug dealer's condo.
You don't visit your dealer unless you're buying something.
- And you know this how? - Kids talk.
- Kids lie.
- Ask him.
And while you're at it, ask him if he brought Sasha with him.
Because those who are corrupted, corrupt.
[Elliot] Nancy! Nancy! Nancy! [glass shatters] - I'm so sorry.
It's my son.
- No problem.
- Elliot! You're sick.
- I know him That's the guy Elliot.
Elliot! Look at me! I need your help.
- Damn it, Elliot! - I need some help.
Where's your dad? Sasha is Becky.
Let me show you.
Come on.
What happened? [stammering] She was Becky.
They're the same.
She talked to me.
She threatened Sasha.
You see? She keeps turning into Becky.
I told you.
I told you.
- It'll happen again.
It'll keep happening.
- Elliot, listen to me.
You're just sick right now.
But you're not wrong.
 You're not alone.
It'll happen again.
It's gonna keep happening.
And then Nancy, you have to do something.
Just don't move.
I'll be right back.
Everything will be okay.
- Hey.
Everything alright? - No.
It's Elliot.
He's sick again.
Just like you said he would be.
I'm here to help.
Come on.
- [sighs] - It's alright.
How are they supposed to help Sasha? They're here for you.
I know it doesn't seem like it, but you'll be safe away from what made you do this, what's triggering you.
Triggering? No.
You don't believe me? Oh, God.
They were the ones who did this.
They dosed me.
I swear.
Come on.
- Let's go.
- No! No.
I need to stay with Sasha.
- Get off me! - It's alright.
No.
Be careful with him! - We need to tell Ben.
- I'll find him.
Nancy How could you not help me? I can't.
- They can.
- Please, not this.
Not this, Mom.
You'll be better soon.
You are strong and you're brave.
- Not this, please.
- Let them help you.
Oh, God, no.
Mom? Mom? Mom! Mom! Never fails.
The Spring Equinox either brings out the best or the worst in us.
[woman] Sasha.
Becky! It's too late.
It already happened.
[rats chittering] [Becky panting] [Becky screams] No! No! Stop screaming, just listen! [ambient noise fades away] [muffled drum beating] [high-pitched droning] Sasha! Jump.
- Jump.
- Sasha! What were you doing? You could've killed yourself.
Where is Elliot? Alright, come on, you're going home.
Never fails.
The Spring Equinox brings out either the best or the worst in us.
Come on.
[crickets chirping] I expected more from you.
Especially being who you are and what you represent.
I get that new beginnings can be stressful, but you can't mess with what's inside of you.
- Are you listening? - Yeah.
Sorry, but I think we need to turn around.
My place is back that way.
Your place is always ahead of you.
I read that painted on the wall at Detox.
Nothing had ever made so much sense to me.
[woman] Sasha, run! I know that the mask might look scary, but it's simply a sign - of reverence, faith.
- [tries to open door] [voice echoing] It's used for supplication.
Honestly I'd feel more comfortable talking to you if I was wearing it.
I'd probably be rambling less, that's for sure.
There's just so much that I want to ask you.
Well, not you, Sasha, but your divine passenger.
Are you talking about Becky? Because she's not divine after you hurt her.
We didn't hurt her.
We gave her a gift.
- The same gift you now have.
- What you did to her - made her do bad things.
- Because Becky was a mistake.
She couldn't handle it.
[Sasha] Where are you taking me? We chose her, but the universe, Sasha, the universe chose you.
Think about everything that had to happen for you to be right here right now with her heart.
We didn't show Becky what she was meant for from the beginning.
Not gonna make that mistake again.
Where are we? Where it all began.
Where I'm going to right our wrong.
Where I'm not only going to tell you but show you who you are.
[screaming] No! Sasha! Get back here! Get back here! You can't run from your destiny.
- Sasha! - I won't let you do to me what you did to Becky.
Get off! Stop fighting.
Stop.
Listen.
The universe chose you.
- Stop, I told you to leave me alone! - Sasha, come on! - Get off of me! - Leave her alone! You will go below with me.
So you can hurt me like you did Becky? - Get off! - Stop screaming! [screaming] Just listen.
Becky? Becky? [Sasha panting] I'm not free.
[whispering female voice] To be free
