Evil (2019) s01e13 Episode Script

Book 27

1 DAVID: I had an epiphany a long time ago, and I felt God was trying to tell me something.
But he's been silent since.
So I-I help it along.
KRISTEN: Wernicke's area is a region in the brain responsible for interpreting language, and it's dormant during sleep.
That's why you can't read text in a dream.
This is a dream.
And you don't exist.
ANDY: You should take the tour up Everest in the spring.
I'll stay here.
I'll take care of the girls.
I was using that track you gave me to make people crazy.
- La, la, la, la - Do you hear that? I don't like it.
It's scary.
Orson LeRoux, I overturn your conviction on all counts.
You are free to go.
Again, there's no demonic possession? No.
My wife believes in that stuff.
I don't.
Why is the defense saying you're possessed by a demon named Roy? I don't know.
So it's your position that you blacked out during the killings, and that's it? - Yep.
- Thank you.
What does that mean to you? "Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will" (SHOUTS) How does that feel? (LOW GROWL) It's George.
Did I wake you? No, I was waiting for you.
Huh? Were you waiting for this? (SCREECHING) (SLOW CLAPPING) (FLOOR CREAKS) (CLAPPING CONTINUES) Who are you? Your husband gave you a gift.
Why didn't you take it? Go climb your mountain.
How do you know that? You know how.
(GROWLS) (SCREAMS) Mom.
You were having a nightmare.
Oh.
I'm sorry, baby.
It's all right.
Just Just go back to sleep.
I saw it, too.
(GASPS) (GASPS, PANTING) (SIGHS) (WIND WHOOSHING IN DISTANCE) - (OVERLAPPING CHATTER) - No, you weren't.
Yesterday you didn't do your homework.
I saw you.
Mom, when does Dad come back from Denver? In a week.
He's not gonna go on the tour.
He's just setting it up.
Is Grandma gonna babysit while he's gone? You know what? I think we can manage without Grandma - for a little bit.
- Oh.
- Really? - Has she changed at all? I mean, has she been acting differently? (OVERLAPPING CHATTER) She was like just like a monkey.
Do you remember that guy that she brought here? - Oh, Leland! - (OVERLAPPING CHATTER) Yeah.
Is she still seeing him? Uh, I don't know.
Was she not supposed to? - Well, she said they broke up.
- Oh, um - I hope not.
- We can talk to her.
Mommy, Mommy, Mommy.
- We can ask her.
- (OVERLAPPING CHATTER) No, that's all right.
Come on.
You guys are gonna miss the bus.
- Let's go.
- No, I cannot miss the bus.
- Go, go.
- I'm not missing the bus.
I'm Ooh, don't worry, Mom.
It won't hurt you.
- What won't hurt me? - Your nightmare.
How do you know what was in my nightmare? (TRAIN HORN BLOWING) You told me.
(TRAIN PASSING OUTSIDE) Bye, Mommy! Love you! Have fun.
Thank you.
Hi, Kristen.
Just thought I'd drop by to say no hard feelings.
I hope that we can still be friends, - and work out all the - Yes, hi, there's a man on our street watching the schoolgirls and I think he's touching himself.
Come on, Kristen, I'm only here to make amends.
- It's step nine.
- Let me look.
I think it's a Chevy.
It's dark blue.
License plate Kristen, this is a mistake.
I'm not your enemy.
It's a New York plate.
It starts with A-O-C Hold on, I think he's leaving.
I came here to make peace.
I found God.
You reap what you sow.
Yeah, you go sow it somewhere else.
(ENGINE STARTS) Yes, he's leaving.
I'll call you if he comes back.
Thank you very much.
Have a nice day.
Let me be clear.
- I don't believe in any of this.
- DAVID: Okay.
- Good to know.
- Wait, wait, wait.
Wait.
I-I still need to, uh, to ask you something.
It's about one of my patients.
She thinks she's She wants an exorcism? Yeah.
And you want her to have one? No, it's just it I recognize results.
I saw the results with Caroline Hopkins.
She believed in it, so she believed in the results of the exorcism.
Will you please just talk to my patient? DAVID: Sure.
Why are all these exorcisms women? Are they? Yeah.
I don't know.
Kristen, uh, David - and, uh - Ben.
Right.
Uh, this is Eleanor Chakiris.
KRISTEN: How far along are you? Eight and a half months.
Twins.
- (GRUNTS) - Contractions? No.
I've been feeling this for four months now.
Oh, my God.
What-what do the doctors say? That I'm having a difficult pregnancy.
DAVID: How can we help you, Eleanor? You think you're possessed? No.
Well, I don't understand.
My fetus is.
Certain positions upset him.
Is this your first pregnancy? Yes.
In vitro fertilization.
DAVID: You said "he".
So you know the sex? One boy, one girl.
BEN: But it's the boy that you believe is ? KRISTEN: Why have you come to think that he's possessed? At night, there are sounds inside me.
Screams.
And bats.
And my daughter, she cries constantly, crying for my help.
Your daughter in your womb? Yes.
She's horrified.
Eleanor.
I have four daughters.
And there were times during each pregnancy when I felt that I knew what they were feeling.
But it were only my own projections, what I worried or - hoped they were feeling.
- That's not it.
I know the doctors think I'm nuts, and you probably do, too, but (SCREAMS) (PANTING) I know what is inside me.
It isn't my son.
It's something else.
Please help me.
Has she seen a perinatal mental health team, or an early intervention psychosis team? - Pregnancy psychosis? - Yeah.
Well, there's no time for them to work out a treatment plan.
She's due in ten days.
She needs to know we're doing something now.
- Right.
- BEN: Is this even a thing? A fetus becoming possessed? I've never heard of it.
But I'll talk to my superiors.
LELAND (OVER PHONE): So who is there? (QUIETLY): David, Kristen, uh, the other one.
- The pregnant patient.
- Okay.
Keep me in touch.
(TRAIN PASSING, HORN BLOWING) (SIGHS): Oh, God.
Mom, look at me.
(CHUCKLES): What? I am.
What? Are you still dating Leland Townsend? Who said that? Andy? Leland knew that Andy gave me this.
And there are only three people who know about it.
You, Andy and me.
Yeah.
We should stop this.
- No, we won't.
- Baby, I'm sorry, but you don't get to determine who I date.
You lied to me, Mother.
You kept seeing Leland, and you kept feeding him information.
Kristen, this is not a war, I'm not feeding anybody anything.
I'm just talking with my lover.
Oh, my God! He's a psychopath.
Come on, stop it.
You need to grow up.
- And stop judging - No, I'm not gonna have you put the girls in danger.
It's your choice.
You choose Leland or your family.
Wow.
So, let me be clear.
You What you're saying is I have to choose whether to babysit your daughters for free or spend the afternoons with my lover? Well, then, it should be very easy for you to choose.
(LAUGHS SOFTLY) You know what love is? Leland isn't asking me to make this choice.
Only you are.
And your answer? Bye.
Uh, is Kristen here? Yeah, she's in there.
Kristen, hey.
You have a minute? Yeah, of course.
Come in.
Look, um, I'm sorry about court.
No.
That's not what this is about.
We have an assault complaint.
Excuse me? An assault complaint in front of your house.
A man who says you accosted him.
(LAUGHING) It's not funny.
Mira, it really is.
A serial killer sits outside of my house trying to intimidate me by watching my girls, and now he's accusing me - of accosting him.
- He's not a serial killer.
- Yes, he is.
- I convinced him not to press charges, but I need you to stay away from him.
I didn't even touch the guy, and he was in front of my house.
As long as you hear me.
- (DOOR CLOSES) - (PHONE VIBRATES) (CHUCKLES) I mean What do you, what do you mean it-it feels like the baby is No, it doesn't feel like he's eating me, he is eating me, from the inside.
I can feel his teeth.
I can hear it.
Eleanor, pregnancy can be frightening.
There-there are a lot of things happening - to your body that no - Stop it.
I know you mean well, but I'm so tired of people not listening to me.
Please listen to me.
DAVID: Eleanor, can I try a test? Please.
Please pick that up and hold it in your hand.
Is it burning your hand? No.
DAVID: It's not hurting you at all? No.
Then I don't think you're possessed.
If the Devil was taking possession, - you'd feel it burning in your hand.
- There.
Place it there.
I believe in God, Father Almighty, - creator of Heaven and Earth - (GASPS) Creator of Heaven and Earth.
And to Jesus Christ, - His only son.
- (SCREAMS) It's the Devil inside me.
Please, get him out before he k-kills me.
Evil 1x13 Book 27 (KNOCK ON DOOR) - Leland? - Hello.
- Hi.
- Thank you for this.
Oh, yeah.
Are you sure Kristen won't notice it's gone? I made copies.
- My smart girl.
- (LAUGHS) I love ancient documents, too.
- Can you figure it out? - No.
- Did your daughter? - I don't think so.
- She keeps studying it.
- Say, let me see your keys.
- Why? - Just let me see them.
Fine.
Thank you.
What're you doing? What're you doing? - Let me see.
What-What-What're you doing? - Don't look.
Okay.
Here then.
I was trying to put my key on it.
(GASPS) - How romantic, keys.
- Yes.
- (BUZZER SOUNDS) - Sorry, just a second.
Oh, no.
Hey, if you have a patient, - I can I-I can come - No, no, no, no.
Bouchard's house key make a copy, then give it back.
(CHUCKLES) DAVID: She needs an exorcism, Father, and Amara is in Rome.
- Kristen? - I've psychologically evaluated her, and from my observation, she does not seem to be suffering from any delusional disorder.
And we've checked her home for toxicity, and there was none.
Unfortunately, what this woman is asking for is impossible.
An unborn child cannot be possessed.
But isn't a child a cognizant creation even in the womb? If not, then why is abortion a sin? But no demon can possess a person until that person gives an invitation, and an unborn child lacks that ability.
- I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry, wait, so you can't perform an exorcism because the fetus - can't choose, right? - The unborn child.
Okay, right.
So what if it's an infestation? Infestation of what? The womb.
DAVID: Ben's right.
You can exorcise the womb even if the fetus isn't possessed.
That's not bad for a non-believer.
(PHONE VIBRATES) Excuse me for a second.
- Hello? - ORSON (OVER PHONE): Hi, Kristen.
Why are you calling me, Orson? To apologize.
As you know, I have become a Christian, and I would like to make amends.
So I would like to apologize for everything - Ben.
- that I've done to you.
I'd like to apologize for fantasizing about killing you.
- It's Orson.
- Yeah? How do I record this? Do you have a phone recording app? sharp end of a shovel - Yeah? (STAMMERS) - I don't know.
And I'm so sorry about imagining snapping the necks of your little girls.
- Record it! - Okay, okay.
I now know that that is wrong, and I would like to make amends.
I just want you to know that I have asked God for forgiveness, Kristen.
- Yeah? - Again, I'm sorry.
Sorry for what? Ugh, damn.
I think I only got his apologies.
I'm gonna need your help with something.
Okay, so you are basically - Fort Knox.
- Good.
And here are your new keys.
All right.
And your security alarm code is "duck".
- Duck? Why duck? - Yeah.
I don't know, because if somebody shoots you, you - Duck.
- Yeah.
Right.
- Thanks, Ben.
- Yeah, you're welcome.
So is the exorcist gonna go through with it? I don't know.
He wants to do - another test during mass.
- What test? LUKE: This is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
Happy are those called to the supper of the Lamb.
CONGREGATION: Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul - shall be healed.
- So you used to believe in all this? Yeah.
In school, we were taught that if you bit into the host - Mm-hmm.
- it would bleed Christ's blood.
Wow.
- Lot of blood in your religion.
- Yup.
Shh.
How's the baby? Fine now.
Quiet.
That's good.
- The body of Christ.
- Amen.
- The body of Christ.
- (SCREAMING) (BLOOD GUSHING) Oh, my God.
(SIREN WAILING) MARKS: Good evening, Eleanor.
I'm Dr.
Collin Marks.
- Hi, sir.
Are you the father? - No, I'm just a friend.
I want him to stay.
Well, it appears as if we're waiting for your regular OB-GYN, who will be on her way shortly.
Turn the monitor back on.
Once your OB-GYN arrives Turn it back on.
Where's my baby? Well, there, ma'am.
No, I had twins.
That's just one.
Where's my daughter? SHEPARD: It does happen on occasion, a parasitic twin.
- Parasitic? - That's the technical term.
It's when a twin stops developing during gestation, but is still attached to the developing twin.
Wouldn't you still see it on the sonogram? - There's nothing there.
- Yes.
That's vanishing twin syndrome.
Seriously? Yes.
It's when one of the fetuses expires in utero and is absorbed by the other.
Or eaten.
No, not eaten, Eleanor, just absorbed.
Just because you have a name for something doesn't mean it's not insane.
It is an unfortunate occurrence.
Usually it doesn't happen this late in a pregnancy, but here we are.
The good news is the remaining child is healthy and strong.
(CRYING) Um, could you please give us just a second? Of course.
Help me, David.
I was the coolest guy in school.
Turns out Mom, what're you doing? You said we could watch TV.
Okay, quiet.
Listen up.
These are keys, four of them.
- They are for you, and only for you.
- Why? - What happened? - Where's Grandma? Grandma's gonna take a break for a while.
And I'm hiring a babysitter, and until then, Lynn's in charge Lynn? - Raise your hand.
- I'm Lynn and I'm in charge.
And Matilda's gonna come over for the rest of the night, okay? To watch you guys in an hour, and whatever she says goes.
- Candy salad for dinner, then.
- Yeah! - Except for that.
- No, because Lynn's in charge.
Okay, look at me for a second.
Ben put security alarms on all the windows.
Ben the Magnificent? Yes, and he dead-bolted all the doors, so nobody can get in.
If somebody knocks at the door, you look through - the peephole, okay? - (GIRLS MURMUR IN AGREEMENT) Easy! Good! Here, a kiss.
- (SMOOCHES) And kisses - No, no, no! for all of you one, two (SMOOCHES) three - What's that? - What? You-You've got blood.
I brushed my teeth too hard.
Why'd you do that? I don't know.
Okay, don't do that anymore, okay? I'll set up a dentist appointment.
- Okay.
- All right.
- (OVERLAPPING CHATTER) - Stop sucking our blood.
We don't have enough LUKE: We beg you to hear us, God.
We beg you to spare us, to pardon us.
ALL: We beg you to hear us.
Bring us into true penance.
ALL: We beg you to hear us.
That you govern and preserve your holy Church.
ALL: We beg you to hear us.
LUKE: We beg you to spare us (ELEANOR GASPING) We beg you to spare us, to pardon us.
ALL: We beg you to hear us.
Bring us into true penance.
ALL: We beg you to hear us.
To govern and preserve your holy Church.
My love, how are you? I'm fine.
I'm just (GROANS) My family is the most important thing in the world to me.
And my daughter has, um Well, she's presented me with an ultimatum.
- Oh, no.
- Yeah.
My granddaughters or you.
That's why I want you to be my family.
Leland.
What ? Please, Sheryl.
I know I'm not much, but I can't lose you.
Sheryl, will you marry me? We need to make my family accept you.
I want that, too.
Then (LAUGHS) Then, okay.
Yes, I will.
(CROWD CLAPPING) (LAUGHS SOFTLY) LUKE: to spare us, to pardon us.
ALL: We beg you to hear us.
Hey.
Hi.
LUKE: Bring us into true penance.
ALL: We beg you to hear us.
LUKE: To govern and preserve your holy Church.
How you doing? Oh, I don't know.
(FAINT PRAYING CONTINUES) I watched you in church.
Yeah.
(LAUGHS) You had a different look on your face.
One I hadn't seen before.
What do you see in it? (SIGHS) I know only one line of Shakespeare.
One I memorized.
Are you about to impress me? (LAUGHS) - I'll try.
- Okay.
"When this body contained a spirit, a kingdom was too small to hold it; now two paces of the vilest earth is room enough".
Thank you.
But-but that's the point to me.
I don't know how we die and our, our lives just disappear with us.
It makes no sense to me.
I don't know why people aren't unnerved by it.
So, it's fear of death? Yes.
I, uh, I knew this - Navy SEAL.
- Mm-hmm.
Greatest man I ever knew.
And funny.
(CHUCKLES) He could do this imitation of, uh, Will Ferrell (LAUGHS) He could quote Herman Melville, do backflips.
He could act as, uh, peacemaker for any dispute.
And the next day, he was gone.
Dead in a firefight.
And I looked at that body, and I knew the meaning of that passage.
"When this body contained a spirit, a kingdom was too small to hold it; now two paces of the vilest earth" I have to go be with my kids.
Are you gonna be all right? Yeah.
Go.
I'm glad we're talking again.
Were we not? For a minute there.
I'm glad, too.
(LOCKS CLICKING) (DOOR HANDLE RATTLING) (DOORBELL RINGS) (DOORBELL RINGS) (DOORBELL RINGS) (KNOCKING) (QUIETLY): Matilda? (KNOCKING CONTINUES) (SLOW KNOCKING) Hello? MAN: Let me in.
I have an old key.
Why should I let you in? You know why.
(DOOR CREAKS) Hello? Let's go.
Where? The next level.
- No! - (THUDDING) (SCREAMS) LUKE: We beg you to hear us, God.
We beg you to spare us, pardon us.
ALL: We beg you to hear us.
LUKE: Bring us into true penance.
- ALL: We beg you to hear us.
- (LULLABY PLAYING) LUKE: To govern and preserve your holy Church.
ALL: We beg you to hear us.
(LULLABY CONTINUES PLAYING) (LULLABY STOPS) (HIGH-PITCHED LAUGHTER) (LULLABY PLAYING) What are you doing? That's BEN: "Pudsy's Christmas".
- Is that from here? - Yeah.
"RSM Fertility".
(LULLABY STOPS) There.
What? It's an Euler triangle.
(TRAIN PASSING OUTSIDE) Lexis! Lexis! Lexis, what are you doing?! Mom, what ? What are you doing down here? Where are your sisters? They're sleeping upstairs.
I wanted to wait up for you.
Where did this come from? I don't know.
Okay.
You go upstairs.
And go sleep in your bedroom.
And I will be right back, come on.
Up the stairs you go.
Where are you going? Go right ahead.
I love you.
(SMOOCHES) I'll be right back, okay? May I help you? Yeah, uh, I was just looking for some information about some of the services that the clinic provides.
Do you have a pamphlet? Uh, we do, but we prefer to do everything online now.
Hmm.
BEN: Do you have any recommendations from other families who have used your services? We do.
Look at our boards.
All parents who struggled with fertility until they had great experiences here.
We have a special program called "Dads to Be".
We're a single source destination, with egg donation agencies and attorneys that specialize in reproduction.
BEN: Huh.
Well, thanks.
Uh, I'll just talk to David.
- I know this child.
- Oh, that makes sense.
There are many from the area.
- Eric McCrystal? - Well, I-I can't give out any information until I've asked the parents if it's all right.
(WHISPERS): That's the kid that tried to drown his baby sister.
You know who recommended that we use you? No, who? Bridget and Dwight Ferrell.
PATINA: Oh, yes, they were such a nice couple.
I-I was so sorry to hear about their miscarriage.
Yes.
It was unfortunate.
But in vitro sometimes needs more than one try.
Again, I really think you should join our Dads to Be.
BEN: So what are we thinking? I think I understand.
What? Matthew 13.
"The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field.
But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat".
David, I don't get parables.
Just tell me.
These are the weeds.
The eggs.
The Slaughter of the Innocents isn't killing two-year-olds.
It's corrupting the eggs.
It's like Boys from Brazil.
- What is that? - My own parable.
It's a movie about these people, they're trying to clone little Hitlers from his DNA.
(PHONE VIBRATING) - Oh, damn.
- What happened? Eleanor's water broke.
Hey.
You heard, too? Yes.
You guys all right? Yeah.
We have to tell you about The Boys from Brazil.
- Is she all right? - Yeah.
Yeah.
She's in labor.
DAVID: Was it successful? - The exorcism? - LUKE: It wasn't complete.
Her water broke.
Kristen.
Yeah? You got blood on your leg.
Huh? Oh.
Thanks.
(WATER RUNNING) Hey, why do you have blood on your leg? I don't have blood on my leg.
See? Do you want me to say that I never saw blood on your leg? I want you to see there isn't blood on my leg.
See? You're okay, right? Yeah.
I'm spectacular.
When my family's safe, I am spectacular.
- And the security system works? - "Duck".
(ELEANOR SCREAMING) (BABY CRYING) (CRYING) BEN: So, is that him? DAVID: Yes.
That doesn't look like the Devil to me.
What does the Devil look like? Well It's a question of nature versus nurture, right? Even with what we saw today? What did you see today? Uh, we saw the clinic where she had her in vitro.
David thinks that the psychopaths are tinkering with the fertilized eggs.
So, what's the thinking, the psychopaths are ? Trying to poison a generation.
Why tempt people later in life when you can start before they're born? Why are you certain of this? The clinic appeared in my vision.
"RSM Fertility".
What? Oh, my Kristen, what? I went to RSM Fertility.
I-I had a miscarriage after Lila.
I-I had a baby born using in vitro.
Lexis.
(DOOR OPENS) (DRAWER OPENS) (FILES RUSTLING) (KNOCKING ON DOOR) Who is it? SHERYL: Why doesn't my key work? - Because I changed the locks.
- Seriously, Kristen? Yeah.
Seriously.
What do you need? Can I come in? Thank you.
Uh Leland and I are getting married and I came here to ask you to be happy for us.
I have never been as happy as I am right now, ever.
And I'm asking you to just please, just overlook your bias against him and love me? I'm your mother, honey.
And I-I carried you and I cared for you, and I'm just asking you to do the same.
Whatever bad blood is between you and Leland can be settled.
I know it can.
Or not.
Oh, come on, Kristen, just say yes.
I can't lose you.
Please, can you just (WHISPERING): " with thee.
"Blessed are thou among women, blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus".
God.
Tell me how to stop them.
(INHALES SHARPLY) (PANTING) (PHONE VIBRATING) Hello? MIRA: Kristen.
It's Mira.
Hi.
Is everything all right? Yeah.
LeRoux is dead.
Uh Oh, my God.
How? I-I don't know.
He was bludgeoned.
We're thinking by his wife, but we're not sure.
I'm so sorry.
That is, that is, that is terrible.
No, it's not.
I-I just wanted to tell you, that's all.
Your troubles are over.
Have a good night.
(EXHALES) (WATER RUNNING) (PANTING) (SNIFFLES) (EXHALES) - (SIZZLING) - (GASPS, SHOUTS)
