Fear The Walking Dead (2015) s05e11 Episode Script

You're Still Here

1 I haven't killed since after the plane.
Why don't you just tell us where the oil fields are, - You're not with them? - With who? The people on that tape? No.
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.
I want to know who's painting those trees.
I want to find them.
Yeah, but where are you? [RUSTLING.]
Strand? Strand? Strand? [GASPS.]
You all right? I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
Don't be.
I should've been closer.
You ever get the feeling the universe is trying to tell you something? Fear the Walking Dead 5x11 You're Still Here Hey, we're running low on fuel.
We'll need to circle back with the rest of the convoy.
You don't think we'll find them.
Even if we do, I'm not sure that Picasso's gonna be able to do for you what you hope.
And further, I'm not sure it's good for you to be out here.
I know.
So, what is it you think this person's gonna do for you that we can't? I'm not sure.
I just know how I feel when I see those trees.
MAN: Hello? Is anybody there? I repeat is anybody there? Don't tell him where we are.
We copy.
Who is this? You go first.
Alicia? He saw the tapes.
You saw the tapes? Mitch? - Is that you? - [CHUCKLES.]
It's Victor.
What's your name? How may we assist you? Name's Wes.
You owe me a ride.
- What happened to your bike? - WES: I don't know.
All these little holes just spontaneously erupted.
Some assholes did it.
Thought I was with you people.
Right after I saw your little movie, I wound up in the movie, so thanks for that.
Friendly guy.
Big fan of yours.
Which is why we can't stick around here jawing.
He may have heard us on the radio.
Why didn't you call us sooner? I didn't think that tape was real.
We can assure you it is.
People who make a show of all the good shit they do - are usually full of the other kind.
- We're here, aren't we? I thought I could push my bike home.
I can't.
My brother's waiting for me.
Probably thinks I turned into an eater by now.
Like this one.
Get in.
I got him.
I got them.
Might be time for a new stick.
No, I'm good.
It's over there.
Now, how do you know the combination? Interviewed one of the managers a while back.
Hell of a place to hole up.
Hell of a way to go.
You don't think this might be overkill? Foot thick, steel-reinforced concrete? Fireproof, waterproof, passive air-filtration system.
It's not overkill.
It's smart.
Something happens to us, these'll survive.
Anything happens to us, I'm not sure there'd be anybody left to watch any of them.
There will be.
If Logan and his dick squad keep trashing our truck stops, we're gonna need as many backups as we can get.
- I'll get the decks.
- Hey.
Showed up on a run I don't really need help on.
Rest of the convoy's bursting at the seams.
How come? Just didn't think it was smart for you to be out here on your own.
You're really gonna make me work for it, huh? Really nothing to work for, Al.
Gonna get those tape decks now.
How long you been looking for those painted trees? Well, you saw the tape.
Since then.
How has that been going? It's still going.
Hey, don't take this the wrong way but don't you guys have bigger fish to fry? There's no shortage of fish frying for us, I can assure you.
We're still trying to help whoever we can.
This is different.
I want to meet them.
I need to.
What do you think is gonna happen if you do? I want to know how they do it.
- Do what? - The - The trees? - Yeah.
It's It's just paint.
Yeah, but they see the world in a way I don't know I want to see it.
I think Well, if you find them, let me know how that goes.
Hard to see it ending well.
Nothing ever does.
I'm sorry about what happened.
With Logan.
People are people.
Home, sweet home.
Keep it.
You never know.
I do appreciate the lift.
No, thank you.
For what? We needed a reminder of why we're out here.
No problem.
I'm gonna run in, tell my brother what's up.
We'll unload your bike.
We'll leave you some gas.
No, no! No, no, wait! - [GUNSHOT.]
- Wes! - No, no! [GUNSHOTS.]
Wes, no, no! ALICIA: Strand, the truck! [TIRES SQUEAL.]
I take it that wasn't your brother.
Come on.
STRAND: What the hell?! It's riot gear! Shit.
- Tear gas.
We have more company.
STRAND: Get inside! [COUGHING.]
- You coming?! - Go! [COUGHING.]
ALICIA: Strand! Aah! Get inside! [TAPPING.]
I'm sorry.
Can you see? [GROANS.]
Oh, my God.
- Oh.
Here, hold this over your eyes.
What the hell was that? I told you.
People are people.
- What does that mean? - That man? He pulled a gun on me a while back.
Took my shit.
- So you came here to kill him? - No.
You brought us here - so you could kill him.
- No.
I came here to get what he took from me.
That? That was a bonus.
And your brother? Don't have one.
Haven't for a while.
STRAND: Alicia, we need to go find that guy.
We can't let him die.
There is still time.
We had a first-aid kit in the truck.
Maybe one of those cruisers has gas in it that hasn't turned.
Man, you gotta be kiddin' me.
He shot at me first.
Doesn't sound like we're leaving anytime soon.
WES: Good.
How many people have you killed? What? How many people have you killed? You have no idea what it's gonna do to you.
You can't kill one of those eaters, let alone a herd.
He can't help you, and I won't, so it looks like I'm gonna find out.
ALICIA: Does anybody copy? I repeat does anybody copy? We copy.
You okay, Alicia? Yeah.
I know we're not supposed to broadcast our location, but I'm not sure what else to do.
Someone out there needs our help, and we don't have a lot of time.
Can you see anything? Uh Not yet.
Well, Morgan and Al are trying to find him.
They will.
They will.
You're right.
Maybe I shouldn't be out here.
I'm the one who can't see two feet in front of him.
You've been doing what I can't for a while now so I don't have to do it.
I don't want to kill the dead, but I do want to help.
I just don't know how both those things are possible.
Maybe they're not.
But I'm willing to keep on trying until the universe definitively tells us otherwise.
There's a junction a couple of miles south from here.
If we take it, we'll end up on the same road the guy took off on.
AL: Oh, great.
Let's stop.
LOGAN: Morgan.
Hey, Logan.
Mind moving your rig? Well, hmm I'd love to oblige, but, uh we seem to have run out of gas.
Somebody's life is in danger.
We heard.
You're really doing this? You folks don't seem to give a damn putting your own lives at risk.
But I know you care about everyone else's.
Least that's what you've been advertising to the world since we first spoke.
So you want to keep that poor fellow from bleeding out on the side of the road? You want to make good on the promises you've been making at every gas station from here to El Paso? Tell me where the damn oil fields are.
We got all day.
And then some.
And I know we both wish we could say the same for that poor bastard Alicia let get away.
His time's running out.
And let's face it yours is, too.
I mean, we can play this one out, but you guys know where this is going.
And that sucks.
'Cause I I've really grown quite fond of you guys.
What about that service road we passed a couple miles back? Take us too far north.
We're already burning time.
If we had the MRAP Then the tanker wouldn't be protected, and that roadblock would be someplace else, stopping them instead of us.
We don't have time for this.
LOGAN: Okay.
Where is it? Why do you need gas? Does it matter? Well, whatever you need the gasoline for we might be able to help you.
You think that "Take what you need, leave what you don't" kumbaya horseshit's gonna work on me? I'm the one that came up with that phrase! I may have bought into it back then, but I sure as shit don't now.
But we do.
And this could work out for you.
You just got to let it.
What I'm doing is bigger than you.
It's bigger than Polar Bear, and that takes some doing.
It's bigger than your little caravan.
But it is gonna help people.
Just not in a way you're gonna like.
This is big girl/big boy stuff, and I'm tired of waiting for you to grow up or die.
Morgan, we're running out of time.
LOGAN: She's right.
I want to know where the oil fields are.
Hell, I'll even settle for a quick read of Clayton's journals.
We can't do that.
You're really gonna let that sad sack die on the side of a road.
See, that's the kind of pragmatism and realism and non-stupidism that makes us more alike than you'd think.
We can't travel if we don't have the gas.
And if you get the oil fields that'll put even more people's lives at risk.
Well little from column A, little from column B We'll find another way to get to him.
Come on.
Let me give you a piece of friendly advice, Morgan.
MORGAN: Yeah? Helping other people isn't gonna make you feel better about not being able to help them.
Helping who? Your wife and son.
What did you just say? I said helping other people isn't gonna Aah! - AL: Morgan! Morgan! - [GUNS COCK.]
If you don't want people in your business don't put it on a TV.
Let's go.
ALICIA: Must have been something important.
WES: What? You said he took something from you.
It must have been important.
It was.
And I think the prick took it with him when he left.
What? - I'm waiting.
- For what? For you to ask me what it was that he stole.
Why would I So you can tell me a story.
Relate it to yourself.
Something you did in your past, maybe.
A lesson to impart.
We're out here because we're trying to help - "trying to help.
" - people.
Yeah, I know.
I saw the movie.
I hate to burst your bubble, but I'm not like the woman in the minefield.
I don't need you people to heal my wounded soul or set me on the right path.
That guy was an asshole, plain and simple.
I just want what he took from me.
- What if you don't find it? - [SCOFFS.]
What if you don't get it back? Then you shot that guy for nothing.
He could die for nothing.
He wouldn't be the first.
He'd be your first.
Somebody's gotta be.
Does it have anything to do with what happened to your brother? [SCOFFS.]
Jesus Christ.
Are you serious? - I lost a brother, too.
- Wow.
We're so alike.
Two peas in a pod.
I'm gonna find another way out of here.
He died.
At the beginning.
Nothing melodramatic, no great story.
Just went out to get some condensed milk one day, didn't see an eater coming, and that was that.
I'm sorry.
The motorcycle Was his.
Nicely done.
Look, I know what you're trying to do here.
You look at me, you see a guy who's taken a bit of a beating.
You think maybe if I can appeal to that part of him from when his brother was still around, maybe I can change him.
Maybe I can "bring out the light.
" That's got nothing to do with why I'm here or why I shot that scumbag.
Then, why did you do it? Because this is the way things are now.
We shoot.
We kill.
If it's not him, it'd be someone else.
AL: Alicia, we're still far out.
Logan put up a roadblock to stall us.
See what I mean? It doesn't have to be like that.
You haven't killed anyone yet.
He's still out there.
You can help him.
Alicia It's okay.
I think I can get one of the squad cars running with the fuel we were gonna leave him.
I saw the keys in the armory.
But, uh, I I know.
I know.
You just stay here.
Are you sure about this? You haven't killed any of the dead since before the plane.
Someone out there needs our help.
If this is what it takes, then this is what it takes.
WES: Wait.
I'll clear them.
I'll help you.
Better hope these hold.
'Cause it's gonna get loud.
Let's get those keys.
There's more eaters in back.
Heading that way now.
ALICIA: Come on, come on.
These are all for the building.
Got 'em.
STRAND: Alicia.
How many more? - What? - How many? - Two.
But you can't - I can and I will.
I just need you to guide me.
WES: You guys okay? Yes.
AL: If we cut through that farm road, we can probably make it the rest of the way on foot.
I'm sorry.
For what? I shouldn't have put what you said about your family on the documentary.
I knew it was there.
I was okay with it.
Didn't seem like it back there.
We made that documentary to show people who we are.
To get them to trust us.
So we had to say who we are.
It's just who I am.
That's not "just" who we are.
We're not ghosts.
What we lost doesn't define us.
Maybe what we do.
Or maybe what we're running from.
I don't know.
That's the turn.
ALICIA: Morgan, Al, do you copy? Hey, Alicia.
Did you find him? Yeah, but not how we hoped.
AL: Sorry to hear that.
We're on our way.
Copy that.
Why? I'm getting it back.
Where is it? What? My manuscript.
- You wrote that? - Where is it? My bag.
Oh, God I just wanted to finish it.
It's good stuff.
It's really good stuff.
You killed him because he stole your book? God, you made me care.
I never should have radioed you.
But you were right.
But I don't need "right" right now.
'Cause at the end of the day people are people.
And they're just gonna leave you wanting more.
Your book.
He died for it.
He can keep it.
How is it? ALICIA: I think he wrote it for his brother.
- Ah.
- That's why he wanted it back.
I think Wes does more than just write books.
- The trees - Wes painted them.
STRAND: I'm sorry.
I know that's not who you were hoping to find.
You're right.
I'm not gonna find what I'm looking for from anybody else.
You made it your own.
I got it.
Alicia? You good? Yeah.
I'm good.
AL: Ready to head out? Well, you were wrong, Al.
And, um [CHUCKLES.]
And you were right.
I'm not running away from anything.
But, yeah, I'm I am not a ghost, and I am not just what I've lost.
And I hold on to it because it is connected, you know? And it's connected to everything.
- The good stuff, too.
- Uh-huh.
I've been seeing a little bit of it lately.
Jenny and Duane and how we used to be.
Anytime I try and get past it, I I try and put it behind me I get worried I'm gonna lose some of the good, too.
So I hold on to it all.
We can make sure you don't lose anything you don't want to.
How? You can tell me about your wife and son.
We're in.
I'm on it.
How'd you know this was here? Like I told them, this is a lot bigger than you think.
The journals aren't here.
Start watching these.
Someone must have slipped up while they were shooting that damn thing.
Adiós, yesterday.
Hello, tomorrow.
LOGAN: What about we buy ourselves a ticket to the promiseland? - [DOOR OPENS.]
- Get back inside.
- It's not bad.
- Seriously? I got an idea.
- Do you answer every question with a question? - Do I? Go down, go down with the ship.
- You're all clear.
- How did they get in here? - Don't! - [GUN COCKS.]
