Fear The Walking Dead (2015) s04e06 Episode Script

Just in Case

1 Previously on AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead" You know, you are welcome to stay here as long as you need, Laura.
I'll be moving on as soon as I can.
Either you give us your stuff and live or we wait for you all to die, trying to make things work.
We're not going anywhere.
Even if we make it work here, thing's are gonna get worse before they get better.
Alicia found this on our friend with the El Camino.
We know where they meet up next.
Yeah, that was a gun.
Pointed at you, by me.
We don't know each other.
I seen your flag.
I see your clothes.
I know what you are.
I know we got a particular person in common.
Yeah, you could go for that gun.
That's me holstering my weapon.
But you got to know, I'm quicker than you on my worst day.
So you could go for that gun.
I'll even let you turn around.
I don't want to shoot a man in the back.
I'll attempt to shoot you in the hand.
But I know better than most there's no guarantees that you're gonna walk away-- or, walk away alive.
Or you can keep your hands up, turn around, answer one simple question, and you assuredly live.
Make your choice.
Hey, don't be stupid.
The man will beat you.
Aah! What do you want? I want answers.
You rig this yourself? Thought I was the one asking the questions.
How many rounds does it fire? Enough.
What's the spread like? I know what you're thinking.
But my guns aren't for hire, and my bullets aren't for sale.
Why not? I stay behind the camera.
You really think you can stand by and watch it transpire? Wouldn't be the first time.
How 'bout we just stick to our deal? A ride for your story.
Heard some of it.
Want to hear all of it.
You can ask us whatever you want.
As long as you get us there.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Yeah, you go out there, you pick the bones, you meet up.
I just want to know where you're gonna meet up next.
I told you, I'm not with whoever you think I'm with.
Yeah? Oh.
I seen one of these before.
It belonged to a guy in an El Camino.
But you already knew that, didn't you? Yeah, what else don't you know? - What happened to her? - Who? Naomi.
This was her gun.
She was at that stadium.
What happened to her?! I don't know, I swear.
I joined up after all that.
Tell me! - Hey! - What happened to her?! - Hey John - Tell me! - John, hey.
- Tell me! - John! Hey! - He knows! John, let him go.
Come on, man, let him go.
Just let him go.
You tell the rest of your group to stay clear of where they were gonna meet.
There are people heading there now.
- What people? - People who want to kill you.
You hear me? I'm sorry.
You better hold on to these.
Just for the time being.
Just in case.
I know it's hard, John.
I don't even know how she died.
Well, we know where Al is taking them now.
We find them, we stop them and then, you can ask them whatever you need to know about Naomi.
I just want to know she didn't suffer.
That's all.
- Sure you don't want anesthetic? - Nope.
Save it for someone who might need it.
So, what'd you find out there? Oh.
A few canned hams and a lot of the dead.
How's the patient? She'll be fine.
A lot better after I eat.
Well, 3 canned hams split 48 ways goes exactly as far as you'd think.
But it's gonna get us through to the next thing.
Gonna get cleaned up.
- Thanks.
- Sure.
Thanks for patching her up.
It was nothing.
You going out again tomorrow? Don't think we have much choice.
No matter how dangerous it is.
So, what new and exciting locale are we visiting today? Look, we can't just get by finding a few cans of food here and there.
We need to find a place with seeds and fertilizer.
Let Cole and Strand pick.
They seem to know where to look.
Where exactly did you find that truck filled with food? Oh.
In a garage near that old housing development off the county road.
Someone must have loaded it up to make their escape but never got a chance to get it out.
I'm going to get some more ammo.
Cole, thanks for covering for me.
Nah, I should be thanking you.
- For what? - For saving me time.
For showing me who you really are before I thought you were someone else.
So why not tell them? You've got no obligation to me.
Honestly? I'm just not sure what you'd do to me if I did.
- Everything okay? - Yeah.
Victor, I didn't want to start a conversation with, "You're not okay.
" What's going on? People are getting irritable.
A slice of processed ham does not a meal make.
Well, I found this in the back of the pantry.
- You wanna-- - Yes.
They don't give up easy.
They don't.
Why'd you do it? Do what? Save me, after what I did.
I wasn't gonna leave you to drown.
But you didn't just pull me out of the water.
You brought me back to that cave.
You nursed me back to health.
With Alicia.
Nick when he could manage.
You went out and found Luciana.
I was in bad shape.
You could've left long before I was able to walk, but you didn't.
You waited, for me.
After everything.
Why? 'Cause I know who you are, Victor.
That, and I really like drinking with you.
Hey, stop! What the hell? Get out! I said get out! Turn the truck off! What's going on, Viv? She said Doug needed our help and then opened the gate and tried to get out before we got back.
I can explain.
What's there to explain? You were ditching out on us.
Look, if you don't wanna stay, you don't have to sneak out.
And you can have the truck.
You're the one who found it.
It's not like that.
I wasn't leaving.
I was I was going here.
Why? There might be seeds, maybe fertilizer, some food, even-- military rations.
How do you know that? Place I used to be.
Place that used to be.
Are there still people there? People there that know you? There has to be a reason why you didn't tell us about this magical supply of resources before we started down the road to starvation.
It's dangerous.
It might be too dangerous.
I didn't want anyone else to get hurt.
But no one goes out alone.
- I'm coming with you.
- I'm comin', too.
- And we'll go.
- No.
Alicia, somebody's got to keep an eye on our friends out there.
And if we come back with what she says we will, we're gonna need the fields ready to plant.
They'll be back.
We should just park up for the night.
Three things we are in desperate need of.
Let's clear it.
These are no good.
Let's try the office.
- Couple guns.
- Mm-hmm.
Killed each other over some cans of beans.
Where have you been? Shopping for dinner.
Ooh, smoked jalapeño, your favorite.
Since when? - Roswell.
- Ah.
The Lagavulin.
- And that was one hell of a mini bar.
- Yeah.
You guys have been to a lot of places like this.
Some better some worse.
It was a long trip from Mexico.
You started in Mexico? Los Angeles.
Something like three lifetimes ago.
So, Naomi, you heard about our sordid past.
Let's hear about yours.
Where exactly are we going tomorrow? An abandoned FEMA shelter.
You lived there? What happened? I don't really want to think about that, so no more questions.
You just have to trust me.
How do you know the supplies are even still there? If you want us to trust, you got to give us something.
It's not the kind of place you'd go looking for seeds.
What about for food? No one would see this place and want to go in for anything.
Except for you.
Victor I wasn't.
You weren't what? I wasn't leaving to go get seeds when Viv caught me.
You were just leaving? I was gonna leave the map behind when I closed the gate so you'd know where to go.
In case you wanted to try.
Why? Because she's a coward.
You're right.
That's what I am.
The keys hand them over.
I wasn't leaving because of you, and I didn't leave.
Because you couldn't.
And now you can't.
I didn't have to tell you.
So, we should thank you for showing us who you really are? Victor, hey.
So, you told us.
That counts for something.
Come on.
We should all get a little shuteye before tomorrow.
Victor, wake up.
Might be able to catch up to her.
What makes you think this is where she's going? She said it was dangerous.
The fewer people that went, the better.
Which is why she left it to us.
If she wanted to leave, she wouldn't have told us the truth.
Why can't you accept the fact that maybe some people can't be saved? I get it.
You got stuff you're ashamed of.
I have, too.
You got to take your opportunities to make up for it.
All that stuff's in the past.
It was a week ago.
The car that Cole and I found? We didn't find.
It was my contingency plan, my way out in case things got too hard.
I'd been stocking it for weeks.
You see, Madison? People don't change.
When pressed, when cornered, the artifice falls and the curtain drops.
They always show you who they really are.
What do you want me to say? That I should've left you out there to drown? That's what I would've done.
Well, lucky for you I'm not you.
I'm so sorry.
Naomi! There's a truck parked out on the loading dock.
Has everything you need! Let us help you.
He was right.
I think I can get to her.
Okay, go.
Cover me.
Hey! Over here! Hey! Come on, Naomi.
I got you.
Come on, you can do it.
Come on! Come on, you can do it! All right.
That's it, come on.
You got it.
Come on, I got you, I got you.
- We got you.
- Okay.
Come on.
We got you, we got you! Come on! Aah! You're clear, you're clear.
Okay, okay.
I needed to try to make up for what I did.
It had to be me in there, not you, not anyone.
They were good people.
People I thought we could be safe with.
"We"? My daughter.
You don't have to tell us.
You don't owe us anything, Naomi.
Her name was Rose.
Her father died right after everything went bad, and I swore that was not gonna happen to her.
This place had food, it had water, and people who knew how to survive.
There was a woman named Ellen.
She taught me how to make it out there.
She taught classes, called them JIC.
What's JIC? Just in case.
She said you had to be prepared for anything.
And I wasn't.
One day, Rose woke with a cough.
I thought it was a cold.
And then, a week later, it turned into pneumonia, and I knew she needed antibiotics.
So I hid her in the pantry behind the food court when I went out, and I told her to lock the door if anything happened.
It took me three days.
I didn't eat, I didn't sleep, and I found that Amoxicillin! I actually found it.
But by the time I got back here with the medicine It wasn't your fault, Naomi.
It was.
No, you couldn't have kept that many dead out even if you'd been here.
The dead didn't get inside.
They didn't have to.
I didn't tell anyone how sick Rose was because I didn't want anyone to know the truth because I thought they would kick us out.
I'd seen that happen at a place we were at before.
Rose She died before I got back with the medicine, and she turned, that first night.
And then-- then everyone else did, too.
I did this! You didn't have to come back here.
It had to be me.
It had to be me.
I couldn't run from it any longer.
You wouldn't let me.
Maybe so I could find a way to live with it.
By helping you, keep what you have going.
She prepped the truck, in case anything went wrong.
Said it'd have everything we need to start over somewhere else.
She was ready for everything out there.
Just not in here.
You did what you did.
You did what you had to do.
What life seemed to be telling you to do.
I did, too.
But this one? She taught me something else.
That we can start over.
We all can.
There a problem? No, we're good.
Then what do you want? We just want you to listen.
To what? You might want to make some room.
It's food, supplies, fertilizer.
Gonna rebuild, re-plant.
So you've picked over everything in a 50-mile radius.
You must be running pretty low on food, too.
Pack it up! Let's go! This is gonna take longer than we can wait.
Come on.
You be careful, Madison.
In my experience, the really bad stuff never see it coming.
Will you look at that.
- Is it enough? - It's enough, yeah.
I gotta say, I didn't think you was gonna pull this one off.
Neither did I.
She did.
I think she knows me better than I know myself.
And I may have been premature in telling you who I am.
Just for clarification on that point.
Madison, we need to talk.
- We won today.
- You were a big part of it.
Let's leave it at that.
People are excited.
They're eating.
Did you unload everything from the truck? Yeah.
Do me a favor.
I'm gonna tell you to do something, and I need you to just do it.
'Cause I don't want to talk about it, and I don't want to think about it.
Grab some rations, a few medical supplies, couple of rifles from the armory, put them in the Land Rover.
Park it at the back of the motor pool, and, Alicia, keep it quiet.
No one needs to know.
Mom, they left.
I don't think they're coming back.
Why? Just in case.
They're coming.
How many? One.
Where are the rest of them? Hello?! Came here to talk! On the ground.
- Hey, you don't understand.
- On the ground! What the hell are you doing here? We came here to help.
Al, you wanna slow this down a little bit? They're not comin', the people you came here looking for.
We found them, and we told them to stay away.
All right, all right.
Bad idea.
Still got time.
You don't have to do this.
I should've told that to Nick.
I'm telling you now.
You should listen to me.
'Cause what you're doing is only gonna make things worse.
Perhaps they didn't heed your warning after all.
Which one of them told you they'd be here? Blue shirt over there.
Much appreciated.
Hey I'm sorry about your brother.
Really? I'm not sorry about yours.
Hey, hey.
Doesn't have to go this way.
Yes, it does.
But you don't have to get in the middle of it.
Get out of the way.
- Move.
- No.
Where is everyone? You didn't tell her.
You aren't gonna like this.
The Land Rover, where the hell'd you get that? Laura? John? No.
No! Wait! No!
