Diablero (2018) s01e04 Episode Script

Conjuro arcano

1 [MARIANA] You think he's coming back, - Mamá Chabela? - [MAMÁ CHABELA] Shhh! [WHISPERING] Walk quietly.
- Stay close together.
- [MARIANA] Where is that thing? These children don't belong to you.
These children don't belong to you! [CHILDREN PANTING] [RECITING INCANTATION] [GLASS SHATTERING] [WOOD CREAKING] [RECITING INCANTATION] This way! - [MAMÁ CHABELA] Run, children! Run! - [LORENZO] This way, follow me! [MAMÁ CHABELA] Stay away from them! You cannot touch them! [GROWLING] A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES [THEME MUSIC PLAYS] - [CAR STARTING] - [UPBEAT POP MUSIC PLAYS OVER RADIO] [MUSIC AND CAR ENGINE STOP] What, man? What's with them? We couldn't let them stay there, the demon will definitely come back.
- But this isn't a daycare.
- [NANCY] Give me a break.
We're not letting this lady get hurt or her child get stolen, that's that.
- Come on! - [CAR STARTS] - Come on, let's go! - Relax, dude.
[UPBEAT POP MUSIC PLAYS] You'll be able to get some rest here.
I'll bring you some food.
No need, thank you.
- Are you in pain? - No, I'm fine.
- Thanks.
- I'm a nurse.
I'll get you some stuff to clean your wounds.
If there's anything you need, we're here to help.
Thanks.
[SHOWER WATER RUNNING] [GROANS] That's what I would like - [KETA] What's your plan? - [ELVIS HUMMING] [KETA] Going down to hell and asking which demon lost a claw? - Right now, my plan is to shower.
- Don't play dumb, Elvis.
You said we're gonna catch him.
- How exactly are we doing it? - You know how, sis.
An arcane invocation? We've never done one.
Ouch! [KETA] And you know how dangerous it would be.
Do you want Mayaken back? Well, this is the only idea I've got.
How can you be sure it's going to work? I'm not sure, Keta.
And I'm especially not sure Nancy will agree to it.
[KETA] I know that if you ask Nancy, she'll go for it.
[ELVIS] And put her at risk like that? [KETA] I thought you wanted to be the best Diablero.
Yeah, but it's not that easy.
No, that's why it has to be you.
You're right, except it is she who'll be putting her life on the line.
You're a Diablero.
And Nancy is the best vessel for demons there is.
She is the best.
I'm sure she will be all right.
Like that song used to say: "You are not what you want, but what you can be.
" [GROANS] - It wasn't that hard! - But I'm still in pain.
- [GROWLING] - [BANGING] It's very important that you do it just like I told you guys.
Yes, Mamá Chabela.
[GROWLING, HISSING] [BANGING] [MAMÁ CHABELA] Don't worry, these symbols will keep him out.
Those marks won't hold for long.
Go finish what I asked you to do.
It won't be long before he tries to get in again.
- [SOFT GROWLING] - [BANGING] [FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING] [ELVIS] Nancy, come get some food.
We're coming.
[ELVIS] Hurry, we made chilaquiles.
So here's the plan.
To find your daughter, we must summon the demon they used.
So, what are we doing? - Don't worry, I'll handle it.
- Mm - we're going to need a vessel.
- [RAMIRO] A vessel? Someone who's willing to put that bastard inside them.
Nancy, we already discussed it.
It's okay if you don't want to.
Really.
Nancy Nancy? This is a Type-2 demon.
There's no way you can get him out yourself.
Look, Elvis.
If this will help us find Mayaken and the priest's daughter, then, I'm in.
But get me some more chilaquiles because these are the shit, Elvis.
[ELVIS] Well, dig in.
We're about to raise hell and it could get ugly.
- What will I do? - Pray, Father.
Pray.
We're going to need all the faith you can muster.
Your drawings are great.
Sebastián, are you okay? Answer me, it's important.
We have to call Wences, he can defend us.
- Yes, but who knows where he is.
- What are these symbols? They're signs from the Aztec gods, for protection.
Will it keep them out? [MAMÁ CHABELA] I hope so, dear.
This is all my fault, that thing is after me.
It's not a thing.
It's a possessed person.
And the gods brought you to me so that I would protect you.
I told you the world is full of demons.
He attacked my mom.
He also attacked my mom and me.
It's not just your fault, we're all to blame.
Don't say that, little ones, none of this is your fault.
But that creature is not going to leave on its own.
And I lost my amulet, it flew out the window.
How do you know so much about that monster? I know as much as you do.
I, too, saw evil up close.
But some good people taught me how to protect myself.
And I'm going to protect you, hmm? [BANGING] - Shh, be still.
- [PANTING] [WHISPERING] Don't make a sound.
Quiet, don't move.
[MUFFLED GROWLING] [UPBEAT MUSIC BLEEDING FROM HEADPHONES] What's the ice for? With demons as powerful as this, the body temperature gets high.
Ice water helps return things back to normal.
This is the first time I've seen Elvis so scared.
What is he afraid of? Elvis is about to perform an arcane invocation.
It's extremely difficult to pull off.
He's summoning a being from another world.
- Isn't that what you do? - [NANCY] No.
Let's say I invite them in.
Elvis won't, he's going to force that bastard to come here.
And he'll be pissed.
When you knock on the gates of hell, Father, you never know who's gonna answer.
[FOOTSTEPS] [VIDEO GAME BEEPING] [RAMIRO CLEARS THROAT] What is it? No matter what happens, please don't leave this room.
- [MAMÁ CHABELA] What are you doing? - Lighting some candles.
[WHISPERING] But, why? Do you want them to see us? Where is Mariana? - I'm here.
- Where have you been? I called the police.
So, what did they say? Are they coming? No.
The phone isn't working.
What's the matter with you? Do you need to pee again? We must find my amulet before he attacks again.
Don't look so worried, guys, everything will be fine.
[RAMIRO] So it's true you've never done this kind of invocation before.
There's always a first.
[RAMIRO] So how do these circles work? This is the circle of power.
And this is the vessel for the beings we're summoning.
[UPBEAT MUSIC BLEEDING FROM HEADPHONES] This is the circle of protection.
Nothing leaves any circle and nothing enters any circle.
- Understood? - [RAMIRO] Yes, yes.
Ventura.
Inside, good.
Outside, bad.
Inside, you're protected.
Outside - I can't guarantee your safety.
- What about you guys? Don't worry, we're protected.
Nancy.
I'll keep it safe for you.
[MAMÁ CHABELA] Be careful.
Don't make a sound, children.
Keep going until you reach the far end.
The amulet must be on the other side.
Do you see it? - [MARIANA] No.
- [MAMÁ CHABELA] Keep looking, child.
It must be around there somewhere.
Hey.
If I'm not scared of a Type 2 demon, you can't be either.
[ELVIS] Are you guys ready? [MARIANA GRUNTING] [MAMÁ CHABELA] I'm going to distract him while you run for the amulet.
[MARIANA] Ow! [GRUNTS] [KETA] The claw.
[ELVIS RECITING INCANTATION] [GROWLING] [RECITING INCANTATION] Hey! Get a whiff of this! Yeah, that's right.
Stay here.
[ELVIS RECITING INCANTATION] Hey, get back here! [RECITING INCANTATION] [RECITING INCANTATION] [MARGARITA MURMURING PRAYERS] [RECITING INTENSIFIES] [DEMON GROWLING] [RECITING INCANTATION] [DEMON GROWLING] Run, Mariana, run! Run, Mariana! Inside, inside, fast! - Did you get the amulet? - Yes, here! [RECITING INCANTATION] - [MAMÁ CHABELA GROANS] - [CHILDREN SCREAM] [RECITING INCANTATION] No! [EERIE HISSING] [NANCY GASPING] [ELVIS] Open your eyes.
[MAN CHOKING] Hide in the bedroom, quick! Close the door, run! Open your eyes.
[MAN CHOKING] Open your eyes! Open your eyes! Open your eyes! Open your eyes! Is it over? [PAPER RUSTLING] - [KETA] Elvis, Elvis! - [ELVIS] God fucking dammit! Elvis! [DOOR OPENS] Don't leave the circle.
[DOOR SLAMS SHUT] [ELVIS MUMBLING] Where is it? [SOFT ZAPPING] - [LAMP SHATTERS] - [DOOR CREAKING] [KETA] Elvis! Elvis! [ELVIS RECITING INCANTATION] Who are you? [DEMONIACAL VOICE] It's me, Elvis.
[IN LATIN] What is your name? [IN LATIN] What is your name? My name is none of your business.
What's your name, succubus? I have no name.
I am no one.
Why do you steal kids, fucking "no one"? It's not me.
[LOW GROWL] - I am only a hand.
- Whose hand? Rescue me, O Lord, from eternal death.
Help me! [CHOKING] You're all going to die.
[KETA RECITING INCANTATION] [ELVIS JOINS IN] That won't help you.
My master is more powerful.
Who is your master, you fucking beast? Your whore of a mother.
- [NECK BONES CREAK] - Funny I never met her.
- Hello there, Father.
- [ELVIS RECITING INCANTATION] Your girlfriend is dead, and your daughter will die soon.
Unless you grow some balls and step out of the circle.
[ELVIS] Stay inside, Ventura.
Come with me, I'll help you get her back.
[ELVIS] She can't hurt you, dude.
Don't move.
- [RAMIRO] Elvis.
- [ELVIS RECITING INCANTATION] [ELVIS] Don't panic, she can't break the circle.
[RECITING INCANTATION] - Elvis.
- No! [LOUD GROWL] [ELVIS] Hurry! - [RAMIRO] Get her off me! - [ELVIS PRAYING IN NAHUATL] Keep it down, will you? - [INDISTINCT YELLING] - [BANGING ON DOOR] - Wait! I'm tying her up! - [RAMIRO] Elvis, I can't! [NEIGHBOR] You in there, I'm talking to you! Can't you hear me? Hey! [RECITING INCANTATION] Hello? - [ELVIS] Keta, help me! - [NEIGHBOR] Is everything okay? Keta! I got the fucker! - Dear Lord! - Bring me any fucking bottle! [GNARLING] [ELVIS AND KETA PRAYING IN NAHUATL] [NANCY EXHALES] It burns, it burns! - What do I do? - Find me a cork! Keta! - What? - Get me a bottle stopper! It's burning me! It's burning my hand! It's trying to take my hand! Bring me something! - [SCREAMS] - Sorry, friend! Where is it? Why did the demon leave your body? I don't I don't know, Mom.
Where's the boy? I think someone took him, they spoke Nahuatl.
Like you.
We've been robbed.
We've been robbed.
I didn't mean to, Mom.
I didn't mean for them to take him from me.
Shhh, don't worry, son.
Just get some rest.
Mom.
What? Did I ? Did I hurt you, Mom? Did I hurt you? I didn't mean to hurt you, Mom.
Hush now, get some rest.
Mom? Don't put that demon inside me anymore.
It's so evil, and so scared.
I don't want it.
It's so, so evil.
- I don't want it.
- Hush, my son.
He's dead.
He can't hurt us anymore.
Take her clothes off! Don't be so rough with her, she's burning up.
Quickly now.
Hurry! Is this your first time? She's going to freeze.
- Get her under the ice.
- [KETA] All done out there.
- This seems like a bad idea.
- Nancy, Nancy! Shut up, both of you! I can't hear anything.
Her pulse is very weak.
[ELVIS] It was inside her too long.
[RAMIRO] You're going to be fine.
- [KETA] This is my fault.
- No, it's not.
Yes, it is my fault.
Dad was right.
Never do invocations you haven't mastered.
Maybe I hadn't mastered it, but I knew what I was doing.
I did it once before! - Give her adrenaline! Do something! - All right! - [ELVIS] Enough! - You're gonna be okay.
I promise you're gonna be okay.
[ELVIS] Come on, breathe.
You can do this.
Dog's paw.
Hen's heart.
Easy, don't try to speak.
You're going to be fine.
[RAMIRO] You gave us quite a scare.
Let's see those eyes.
See? Much prettier than when they're all black.
[VIDEO GAME BEEPING] [EXHALES] [ELVIS] Dude, that wasn't normal.
The demon had a master.
Someone who had it leashed, like a dog.
It wasn't a free demon like all the others.
All this time we've been looking for a monster.
But our true enemy is made of flesh and bone like any of us.
[RAMIRO] Can a demon be controlled? Made to do one's bidding? Like stealing kids? Someone who has mastered the arcane incantations.
Why did you lock us in? For your protection.
[ELVIS] This isn't an amateur we're up against.
It's an expert Diablero, a powerful one.
So, whoever has my daughter is someone like you.
I saw your daughter.
- What? - She's with two other kids.
Is she all right? Did you see her? Who is the bastard holding her? It's a she.
What? [NANCY] A woman.
A Diablera.
[KETA] Who can it be? Who can use spells that not even Elvis Infante dares to cast? Huh? Am I mistaken? When did you do it, Elvis? You said you'd done it before.
When did you perform an arcane invocation? - Elvis.
- I should've told you long ago.
- All right, so - But I never found the right time.
What? All I wanted was for the angels to come back, Keta.
I wanted to see one.
I cast the invocation.
I thought it didn't work.
But two weeks later, you told me you were pregnant.
- Don't.
- I didn't know.
All I wanted was to be a good Diablero.
I wanted to get an angel to help us, like Dad used to say.
Why didn't you tell me, asshole? [FOOTSTEPS] [DOOR SLAMS SHUT] [EERIE HISSING] [HISSING INTENSIFIES] [EERIE VOICES CALLING] [LIQUID BUBBLING] [CHOKING] [GLASS SHATTERING] Mom? [HEAVY BREATHING] [SOFT GROWL] [CHICKEN CLUCKING] [HEAVY BREATHING] [RECITING INCANTATION] Who are you? Where am I? Lucas! Lucas? Lucas? - [MAMÁ CHABELA] Wences.
- Lucas? - Lucas! - Wences, come here! Lucas! Lucas! Lucas! [MARGARITA CHOKING] You have fallen, and you're hurt.
You fell where thorns lie, in murky water.
- Now your body bleeds.
- What happened, Mom? - Are you okay? - Get her out of here.
Quickly! It's still too weak.
She'll be all right.
We just need to get her fever down.
[FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING] The mother and the boy seem to have vanished.
- You sure? - [RAMIRO] Yes, I'm sure.
I mean, they can't have left.
Unless Where's the demon? Is it still in the bottle? No, no, no.
It can't be.
It can't be.
- This isn't happening.
- It reeks of demon shit.
It found a host, man.
The Diablera wanted it back.
She summoned it and got the mother.
It got away.
[RATTLING] Go see what that was.
Hurry up! Move! You forgot to close the door, didn't you? [MARIANA] Help! Help! Help! "THE GARDEN OF EDEN" DINER FRESH TROUT AVAILABLE [ACTION MUSIC PLAYS]
