Fear The Walking Dead (2015) s05e10 Episode Script

210 Words Per Minute

1 Why don't you just tell us where the oil fields are? I wake up every morning, wondering if today will be the day I start to feel sick.
I got a chance here to do exactly what I need to do, so I'm taking it.
We're recording so that we can show people what we're about.
Figure this is the best way to get the message out.
We are out here helping, but this is bigger than any of us.
Anyone there? I'm on channel four, like you said.
I saw the video at a gas station.
Name's Charles.
Uh, people called me Chuck back when there were still people to call me Chuck.
When you get here, I just want you to do one thing.
Kill me.
I got bit while I was corralling some of the dead, and, well, I want to do what you said.
I-I want to help.
The place I've been living, it's got everything you need under one roof a-a book store, a bunch of places to get clothes, a food court.
Hell, there's even an Urgent Care.
Are you there? Anybody listening? If you are, by the time you get here I'll already be gone.
I-I don't have a gun or I'd do it myself.
I-I've got a red jacket on, so I'll be easy to spot.
Hell, I'll just hole myself up in the security office.
I-I-It'll make it easier for you.
Find me.
Bury me someplace outside.
Just put me under the stars.
Yeah, that'd be nice.
Oh, shit.
He wasn't kiddin', was he? It's like before.
You think it'll be enough? It'll be enough.
Come on.
Let's go find him.
You guys go ahead.
I'm gonna go clean up the strays.
Candy beansies are jawbreakers now.
Candy what? Mm.
Hey, did you talk to him? No.
He must've remembered what I said on that tape.
He said he'd be here.
Looks like he tied himself up here till he turned.
Must've broke loose, wandered off.
So we'll find him.
He couldn't have gone far.
You okay? Think my blood sugar's a little low.
That's why I grabbed the candy beansies.
Well, that and I haven't had one in What? What do you keep calling those? Candy beansies.
Candy beansies? Yeah.
- What? - Morgan! - Grace! - Yeah? Found the strays.
Our voices must've drawn them out.
You think he fell down there? This might take a while.
You two really thinkin' about goin' down there to kill someone who's already dead? He said he'd have on a red jacket, right? Grace, that's what he Grace? - Hey, hey, hey, Grace.
- Grace? Need a first-aid kit, please.
Hey, Grace, Grace.
You stay with us.
You just stay with us.
Fear the Walking Dead 5x10 210 Words Per Minute Daniel? You should get back to the car.
We need to keep moving.
I got a letter this mornin' How do you reckon it read? Say, "Hurry, hurry, the gal you love is de " Grace? - Grace? - Mm? Grace, can you hear me? Hey.
So, uh, you passed out.
Candy beansies isn't what you call it, right? No.
It's jelly beans.
You alright? My mama was an interesting woman.
She both made up answers and always had to be right.
I had heard people say "jelly beans".
I just thought it was, like, some name of a brand of candy beansies.
No, it's really not.
Well, I'm glad I didn't find out too late.
We're gonna get you back to the caravan.
- What'd you raid a camping shop? - The generator, it's downstairs.
That's the best we're gonna do.
Can I ask? What just happened, does, uh does that have anything to do with, um The radiation? You said it would just be a matter of time.
It could be the start, or it could be a cold, exhaustion, maybe something I ate.
I don't know.
Is there anything we can do? - Morgan.
- Hey.
You okay? I just had a nap on a real mattress with fresh, new sheets, and I faced the truth about candy jelly beans, so, yeah, I'm I'm good.
What's going on? Is that Daniel? Logan and his people just hit another truck stop not too far off.
So we should go, circle up with the others.
Way our caravan's growing, we need everything we can find in this place.
What if they find us? No, they won't.
We were careful.
No chatter, no breadcrumbs.
But they might've heard the same message that brought us here.
You think they're in range? Well, uh, we're pickin' up Daniel's signal.
So we go? Look, they're pretty pissed about the gas, alright? I wanna make sure we're standin' if they're on their way here.
If they're hittin' truck stops, we're gonna need everything that's in here more than ever.
Can you get back to the caravan? Bring trucks so we can load up, and send the kids north using back roads.
You should go with him.
No, I'm staying here.
You need to get checked out.
Look, whatever this is, I'm gonna do much better in here than I will do in the back of a semitrailer.
Let me go and get some water from the car before you go.
I'm still feeling a little wobbly.
You You stay here.
Uh, I'll go get you a bottle.
Thank you.
Should get you through till we, uh, get back.
Be careful.
Hey, you're not doin' careful.
I mean, we both chose somethin' else.
We did.
Could've given up the oil fields, let Logan's guys have the gas for themselves.
We needed it.
- Other people needed it.
- That's right.
But, see, I've already been on the wrong side of takin' what people need.
You know that.
Oh, I do.
You turn off your conscience, your heart.
When that happens, it's harder to turn 'em back on.
So now we're just gonna live our lives lookin' over our shoulders? Tell me, please, h-h-how this is gonna end with them.
You know, I have faith in people.
In everybody.
I have to.
We're just gettin' to know each other.
Already, I got faith in you, Dwight.
If they come at us, we we redirect, we try and make this something other than a fight.
No, I'm just sayin', we may need a little more than that.
I think you said it.
We're not doin' careful.
We're doin' right.
I just hope that, uh, Logan and his people see that.
Daniel, do you copy? I repeat, do you copy? I'm headin' south on Ranch Road 1795.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incre it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way in short, the period was so far like this present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on it being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
There were a king with a large jaw and a queen with a plain Grace.
I know we said we'd help, that we would bury him, but he wouldn't want you in the ground next to him.
I know.
I wasn't going down there for him.
I was going down there for me.
I've seen people die from radiation poisoning.
I've seen people get cancer from it.
Every time I cough, every time I lose my breath, every time I feel a butterfly in my stomach, I I wonder I wonder if this is it, if this is the beginning of the end for me.
That is no way to live, Morgan.
I-I don't understand.
There's an Urgent Care Clinic just off the main concourse.
They have X-ray machines, maybe an ultrasound if I'm lucky.
I want to know.
I need to know.
Tell me what I can do.
Help me get to the generator.
I can take care of the rest.
And you really think knowin' will help? Yeah.
Then we got work to do.
And after that, let's find him.
You with, uh, Logan? Look at that.
Bright as a bulb.
Look, whatever you came here for, you're not gonna find.
Had a feelin' you'd say that.
Maybe, yeah, but I bet you didn't think I'd say this.
I was hopin' you'd follow me.
Why else would I say where I was goin' on an open channel? You're right.
I didn't think you'd say that.
Nice driving.
Almost there.
We get to Urgent Care, we can get to the generator through the back halls.
Grace? Grace? Shit.
In here.
I'm sorry, Morgan.
I thought I thought it was him, but that walker's been dead too long.
He's what we're here for.
He wanted help, and you were trying to help.
It's alright.
Dwight, he'll be back in the morning.
We will get to that generator.
We just have to wait until he gets back.
You look the kind of guy who's been through some shit, which is why I can't, for the life of me, figure out why you'd do some dumb-shit thing like walking around with an unloaded gun.
Dumb shit? Oh, you mean like following where I was on the walkie so you can find everyone else.
I reloaded it for ya.
In fact, I'll give you a couple bullets if you j Yeah, yeah, yeah.
You're gonna shoot unless I tell you where the oil fields are.
And what's Logan want with 'em anyways? You know what? Who gives a shit? I'm sure it started off with good intentions until this type of thing became your bread and butter.
Now, see, the question you gotta ask yourself is, "Am I just an asshole now?" No.
No, I've always been an asshole.
At least, according to my mama.
Look at my face, man.
Been through worse.
Whole lot worse people, too.
Aw, I'm sure I can think of somethin'.
You're gonna give me what I want.
I'm not, but you can keep tryin'.
And when I get free well, we'll see.
The sea did what it liked, and what it liked was destruction.
It thundered at the town and thundered at the cliffs, and brought the coast down, madly.
The air among the the houses was of so strong a piscatory flavor that one might have supposed sick fish went up to be dipped in it, as sick people went down to be dipped in the sea.
A little fishing was done in the port, and a quantity of strolling about by night and Liquid or solid? Um, both.
Both it is.
This is all my fault.
We could be up in the food court right now, eating jars of pizza sauce.
So that you just call "pizza sauce".
My ma called it "tomato toppy".
- Here.
- Thanks.
What's that you're listening to? "Tale of Two Cities".
Never got through it.
210 words per minute.
Goes by much quicker than you'd think.
Only way I can finish it in a day.
You're brave, Grace.
Just doin' what you're doin', makin' the most of what you got.
We should all be doin' the same.
I am so not brave.
Yes, you are.
And I've seen it.
When I was 8, I loved horses.
So my parents took me to this dude ranch so I could see what it was like to ride on one.
I'd never even seen one up close before.
And there was this one stallion.
Beautiful white mustang.
I got right up to it, and when I placed my hand on it, it jerked away a tiny bit, looked at me funny.
I ran away into my mother's arms.
She tried to tell me that was just a natural reaction.
She tried to get me on that horse, but I wouldn't.
You were just a kid.
I just kept screamin' and screamin'.
We got back to the car and never went back.
Story of my life.
I always overthought everything car leases, gym memberships, relationships.
Made me great at my job but not much else.
Oh, well.
Doesn't matter now.
Can always find another horse to ride.
You seen one lately that hasn't been torn to pieces? Actually, I have.
I've rode a couple, too.
I'm still playing it safe, Morgan, doin' things I can finish today because I'm too scared to start somethin' I might not get to see to the end.
But if the ultrasound tells you what you think it's gonna, is there somethin' you can do? It'll be cancer.
Maybe in the lymph nodes.
Before, I might've had a fighting chance, but now? No way.
Did you race cars with your son? With my son? Back there when you were I don't think I've ever seen you smile like that before.
I saw the tape, Morgan.
We're in here right now because you're helping me with my problem.
Least I can do is try to help you with yours.
Look, Grace I'm cooking pad Thai and listening to books on tape at double speed.
Give me a chance to do something real while I can.
It's not the kind of problem you can just fix in a day.
We got another problem to deal with.
Let's get to that generator.
Did you bring something to tear my fingernails off with? Pair of pliers maybe? I was thinkin' about your question, and to tell you the truth, I got no clue why Logan wants that gas, but he wants it.
And when you go that long without somethin', well, it makes you do even crazier things to get it.
You can understand that, right, Dwight? How do you know my name? Oh, come on, now.
You can't go a mile around here without findin' one of them tapes y'all made.
I gotta say, when I saw your part, I thought, "I get this guy.
I mean, he's all broken up over what eventually breaks us all snatch.
Don't touch that.
See, that's the thing.
When we get good snatch, and I mean really good snatch, and we lose it, well, watch out.
That's cute.
Not a good idea.
I'll keep burnin' these things right up until you tell me.
Or maybe I'll find her myself.
She sounds like a sweetheart.
Go on.
Do it.
You're an asshole, too, right? Yeah.
Yeah, right.
Your light.
Turn it off.
We won't be able to see.
Oh, I know.
I need you to turn it off and just get down.
Don't overthink this, Grace.
I got it.
Morgan? Morgan? Grace.
You got it? You know, I would have if Thank you.
We always seem to end up around generators, don't we? Yes, we do.
This might take a minute.
My boy, he was, um, 6 when I got him one.
Remote-control car.
I got him one for, um can't even remember what.
Good grades.
What was his name? He's Duane.
Used to race that car up and down the street till it got too dark to see.
He made me smile.
He did.
See, I've always been a kind of serious guy.
Really? Yeah, except with them.
That's how I knew it was right.
First date with my wife, Jenny, found myself smilin' this giant stupid smile all night afterward.
I don't think I could've wiped it off my face even if I tried.
I wouldn't want to say goodbye to that, either.
You have somebody? No.
Why not? Same reason why I didn't get up on that horse, I guess.
I worked with someone in the plant.
He was smart.
He was kind.
He let me keep thinking that candy beansies were candy beansies.
It was right.
And that's why I didn't let it happen.
I have to say, Morgan, I am so jealous of you.
Me? Yeah.
You did it.
You went for it.
You're the brave one, Morgan, not me.
And now you have that smile.
Hopefully, it's not Morgan.
One more.
Grace! That's the only way out.
How many rounds you got? Not enough.
Where's the shutoff? Nothin'.
I'm out.
We need to find something to block 'em off.
We better get that alarm off.
Let's go.
He's alive.
Come on.
Get up.
That's good enough.
Turn around.
Just get it over with, man.
You wanna know why my gun wasn't loaded before? Because you were right.
I am an asshole.
Or used to be one.
And the way things are goin' lately, I didn't trust myself not to be that again.
You know, someone gave me a second chance.
That's the same chance I'm givin' you.
What the hell are you talkin' about? When you walk out of these woods, you're gonna have a choice to make.
You can go on bein' an asshole or you can figure out someone else to be.
You came.
You came.
Hey, bud.
Hey, we've been lookin' for you.
Yeah, sorry for changin' things up.
I I meant to leave a note or somethin', but I-I-I didn't know how much time I had.
Figured I should make my move while I could.
The, um the stumblers busted into the security office, and, uh, they followed me into the stairwell.
I hope they didn't cause you any headache.
- Okay.
- No problems whatsoever.
And why'd you come up here? Wasn't sure how long you'd be.
I asked you folks to bury me under the stars, but I got to thinkin', you know, if I could just make it to the roof, you know, maybe I could see them one last time Just my luck, though.
A cloudy night.
Least I got company now.
I'll be right back.
Stay there.
I've got something that could help.
How's that? It's perfect.
Thank you.
I should wait out here in case there's any more stragglers.
I don't wanna know.
Sorry, what? He didn't want to die here in this mall.
I don't want to, either.
So I'm just gonna believe there's more than today, Morgan, no matter what happens.
That's That's brave.
That's being alive.
Really alive, right? Sorry to make you go through all this.
No, I mean, we did what we came here to do.
We did.
Dwight'll be back with the others in a few hours.
We oughta try and get some sleep.
I'm not tired.
I know there's some juice left in the genee.
You really gonna make me ride this by myself? I am.
Come on.
Come on.
Really? Yeah.
Oh, my God.
You look good.
- You look like a natural.
- Really? Yep.
I was hoping they'd have a Cinnabon.
I really like those.
I didn't see one.
They have a Cinn City? Don't think so.
- A Bunnery? - No.
What happened? Uh, ran into one of Logan's guys out on the road.
And where is he now? I let him go.
I said we're not doin' careful.
Nah, we're doin' right.
We should get outta here, you know, so Logan's guys don't find out where this place is.
We passed an old ranch on the drive out.
It needs to be cleared, but it might be a good place to park for the night.
A ranch, huh? We'll help.
Let's load up.
I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free, in their triumphs and defeats, through the long years to come - Thanks.
- I see the evil of this time and of the previous time of which this is the natural birth, gradually making expiation for itself and wearing out.
I see the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, generous, and happy.
I see the good old man, so long their friend, in 10 years' time enriching them with all he has, and passing tranquilly to his reward.
I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence.
It is a far, far better thing that I do than I have ever done.
What are you smiling about? No reason.
Got us all gassed up.
Oh, and, uh, grabbed a couple of these, too.
Road snacks.
I'm not goin' with you.
It's Al, you know? She's, um, out there on her own.
She should have backup, and I think that's where I oughta be.
Of course.
Of course.
But you be safe.
Will ya? Yeah.
And I'll see ya soon.
See you soon.
I'll see ya.
Strand? Don't you guys have bigger fish to fry? You shouldn't have run out of gas.
Tell me where the damn oil fields are.
I never should've radio you.
