Fear The Walking Dead (2015) s08e08 Episode Script

Iron Tiger

RUSSELL: We're looking for a woman.
She's hiding out in the area.
The wolves are circling.
I came here to help you.
I lost my family, Madison.
MADISON: The files. It's not
just the kids in there.
Luciana. Charlie
You can find out what happened to them.
TROY: Hey, there, Madison. Been a while.
Belonged to Alicia. Took it off
her corpse after I killed her.
You want to fight?
My question for you is,
what are you even fighting for?

Are you sure this is it?
It's where we pick up the tankers.

Did you ever see where
the tankers came from?

- Check if the tanks are empty.
- Okay.
We're wasting time.
We should be taking the fight to Troy.
Our fuel reserves are low.
We need to find where
PADRE got their supply.
We're giving him time to regroup.
He took a daughter away from me, too.
I know what you're feeling.
But first, we do what we need
to do to protect the island.
Then we make Troy wish
he died back at the dam.
MAN: No good, boss!
These tanks are empty, too.
Perhaps we continue this debate
inside this fine establishment.

Whoever's here, show yourself!
Shoot anything that moves.
What the hell is this place?
What is it, Victor?
Impossible. Relics of a bygone era.
We're clear.
Are you sure this is where PADRE
was picking gasoline up from?
DANIEL: Just like the one
we used to make.
Who would want to resurrect that?

Victor, she's missing her left arm.
Madison, what are you doing?
It's not her.

Madison, step away from

Daniel, take care of them!
Come on.
That wasn't us.
Then who the hell was it?
You died a long time ago.
I've been getting that a lot lately.
- Strand?
- Luci.
What are you doing here?

You okay?
Yeah. I'm fine, Victor, really.
I'm not talking about the scratches.
My baby was alive this whole time.
I didn't even try to look for her.
We all thought she was gone.
But I'm her mother.
I should've never given up on her.
I should've known.
No one could've known.
But one thing's for certain
The last thing Alicia would've wanted
is for you to die like that.
If what Troy said is true,
if she's still out there
I can't let her walk around
like that forever.
I need to put her to rest.
I need to bury her.
All of her.
I know.
And you will.
If she's out there, we'll find her.
I'm sorry, Luciana.
I didn't mean to trash your gas station.
Daniel told me about Alicia,
what Troy did to her.
There's nothing to apologize for.
It's good to see you.
So much has happened, Madison.
I know.
There are fresh supplies
in the back if you need them.
Luciana, thank you.
So you were making gasoline for PADRE?
When they brought me in seven years ago,
they realized what I could do.
They didn't give me a choice.
They threatened the people I care about.
Who did they use against you?
Me? I wasn't at PADRE.
Because I asked for your freedom
in exchange for making gas.
That's why they abandoned me
in the swamp.
If I hadn't, they would have killed you.
They thought you were too old
to be useful to them.
Thank you for saving my life, Luciana.
I thought you were on the island
with the kidnapped children.
The deal I made with PADRE meant
I have to work in the shadows.
They had military oil reserves.
They just needed someone to refine it.
VICTOR: So, Luci,
how'd you end up setting up shop
in a place like this?
You can't possibly have fond memories
of the last gas station we inhabited.
This is just an outpost.
The refinery is miles from here.
If PADRE was getting the fuel made,
I had to make sure I was helping people.
What is this place?
It's a way station for travelers.
They can get food, water,
medical supplies,
even fuel if they've got a working car.
These supplies are from
PADRE's containers.
We've got 23 active locations.
Two more being set up as we speak.
We've got a network of roads
- running clear through to Arizona.
- Hmm.
Did PADRE know that you were
taking provisions from them?
As long as we delivered fuel,
they didn't ask questions.
If you give us the fuel,
Troy will not be a problem
for us anymore.
If we're gonna defend ourselves,
we're gonna need more than what we have.
You can have gas
if you think it's gonna help,
as long as Troy doesn't
figure out where it came from.
We won't blow your cover.
I'll send a tanker to the main road.
You should wait for it there.
You want us to leave?
I need to keep my operation safe.
There's a lot to talk about.
I mean, we haven't talked
in seven years.
Daniel, I need to protect the
people that make this possible.
If you're afraid that Troy's
people followed us, don't be.
I made sure they didn't.
You don't know that.
MAN: Iron Tiger's about to pull up.
Just tell Iron Tiger to wait.
MADISON: Who's Iron Tiger?
You should leave now.
What's going on? Who's out there?
Just wait in the back.
It's safer this way.
So, do you think Troy's got to her?
Troy's the one that
kicked her off the ranch.
He tried to turn Nick against her.
She wouldn't lie to me.
She wouldn't deal with Troy.
She knew you were alive
and didn't look for you.
She's moved on, Daniel.
If you think she had a choice
between protecting us
or protecting all of this,
which one would she choose?
Certainly not you.
I'll show you both how mistaken you are.
I asked you to stay inside.
[CHUCKLES] They think
you're up to something,
and I want to show them they're wrong.
You're making this harder
than it has to be.
No, you are. Who's in the truck?
Whatever you think it is, it's not.
VICTOR: Then what are you
so worried about?
Just show us what's inside,
and we'll be on our way.
I can't.
- Why not?
- Madison, please.
Whoa! Is that really necessary?
You're not gonna shoot me.

Turn around. Slowly.

You're alive.
You're here.
[CHUCKLES] You're still here!
You were just weeks away from death
when we got on those rafts.
June didn't have what
she needed at the Tower
to treat the radiation
poisoning, but, um
PADRE did.
Why didn't they keep you on the island
and raise you with the other kids?
They didn't know
if the treatment would work.
If I died and turned on the island
They gave her to me.
She helped me build this place.
MADISON: I don't get it.
Why didn't you want us to see her?
Because of the stadium?
You haven't told her?
Told me what?
I thought Charlie was dead.
I didn't think there was a reason to.
Reason to what?
Let me tell you on the boat.
What the hell is going on?
It's complicated.
It's not.

I shot Nick.
I killed your son.
I was scared, and
Ennis was dead, and I
I pulled the trigger.
I'm so sorry, Madison. I really am.
- Madison
- No!
- DANIEL: Come on, Charlie.
- Go, go!
- Get her inside!
- Come on.
Don't do something you're gonna regret.
Who said I'll regret it?!
Let us explain.
No! Get off me!
There's nothing to explain!
Get the hell away from me!
Both of you!

VICTOR: Madison!
You missed one.
You knew, Victor?
You really knew?
I thought she was dead.
I didn't think it mattered.
You didn't think it mattered
that the girl
I brought into the stadium killed my son?
It wasn't your fault.
You had no idea
how this was gonna play out.
None of us did.
I should've told you. I'm sorry.
- Madison.
- No!
- Come on.
- No!
Come on. It's gonna be okay.
It's not okay! It's not okay!
If I hadn't brought her in the stadium,
Nick might still be here!
If I just If I hit Troy harder,
Alicia might be here.
If I just did it differently
they both might be here.
No. It's not okay.
It's not.
Maybe I should take
you back to the island.
No! God! We gotta get the fuel.
Daniel can handle it.
Why is she still here?
How could you let her
back in after that?
This may be hard to hear,
but we gave her the same thing
that everyone else wants
a second chance.
Even Alicia?
Alicia was the first one to forgive.
I don't think I can do that.
No one's asking you to.
can I talk to Madison?
I don't think this is a good time.
No. Let her.
I want to hear what she has to say.
I don't blame you for feeling
the way you do.
I hated myself
for a long time
after what I did to Nick.
And I don't expect you
to forgive me or anything,
but I just
I really need to say this
because I honestly don't know
if I'm ever gonna see you again, so
No, this is not this is not for me.
This is for you,
so that you can feel better
about what you did to Nick.
I was 11.
I was 11 years old, and I was scared,
and I was being used by people
who were older than me,
and I just
I really am sorry that
I took Nick from you.
I'm so sorry I I took
him from the world.
I really have tried to turn
all that hurt
and all the pain and and
turn it into something more.
That's why I spend every single
day doing what I'm doing.
It's It's what makes things
like this possible.
As bad as his death was,
something good did come out of it, okay?
And if if there's anything I can do
to help you see that good, just tell me.
I'll do it.
I told you this wasn't a good time.
No. There is something she can do.
You snuck into the stadium,
you fooled me,
you fooled my son,
you fooled Alicia, Victor, everyone.
I need you to do the same
with Troy Otto.
You want me to find out
what he's planning?
Nope. I want you to do something else.
I want you to kill him.
Madison, don't do this to her.
You took the stadium from me.
You took my son from me.
This is the least you can do.

You're right.
I'll do it.

I still think this is too dangerous.
Now, we all know what Troy
is capable of.
Let me do this for her.
You won't even get close.
He knows us. He doesn't know her.
He's not gonna see it coming.
Madison's right. You can't do this.
You know, for years, I thought
you and Luciana were dead.
Now that I have found you,
I don't want to risk losing
either of you again.
I know that, but you won't
lose me, Daniel.
I know what I'm doing, okay?
Please don't make this any harder.
I want to do this.
I I need to do this.
So what's your plan?
Exchange fuel.
He'll be less suspicious if he
gets something out of the deal.
And then what?
I'm going to fix this for you.
When I come back,
none of you will have to worry
about Troy Otto.
I'm gonna try to find out
what happened to Alicia, too.
No. You don't have to do that.
You don't have to pretend like you care.
She was my friend, too, Madison.
She was the one that helped me
see that I could start over.
I know you don't believe me. I know.
But I really am sorry about everything.
I wish I could take back
what I did to Nick.
He was like a brother to me.
Then you wouldn't have shot him.

The keys to the tanker.
It's parked just down the road.
There's enough gas to last you months.
Let's radio the island.
Can I stay with you?
At least until Charlie returns?
I think it's best if you
go back to PADRE until then.
There's a reason we stay hidden
to keep things like this from happening.
Maybe you're right.
Maybe we shouldn't have come here.
Daniel, I wanted to look for you.
Every day you were out there,
I wanted to find you.
But I needed to protect you,
and I needed to protect everyone here.
I know.
I understand. I do.
And I'm very proud of you.
For that and for this
this whole operation.
Not everyone could have
done this, Luciana.
Wait here.
Don't look at me like that.
We're gonna win this fight, Victor.
We're not gonna let that asshole
take the island from us.
What's the point of saving it
if we turn into the opposite of
what Alicia wanted us to build?
If Charlie meant what she said
about Nick,
she's gonna show us
by taking care of Troy.
It's all yours.

Recon to base. Recon to base. Over.

What is it?

This is my son.
We were clearing roads in North Texas.
Charlie wanted to see
where we buried Nick
so she could tell him she was sorry.
I didn't realize how much I missed him
until I was standing
over his grave again.
So you dug him up?
When Charlie heard
why we buried him there,
she said he deserved something
better, and she was right.
So we cremated what was left
of him and brought him here.
Where did you bury him?
In a field in Hill Country.
What was wrong with it?
We only buried him there so we
could get to a weapons cache.
We were in a dark place, Madison.
It didn't mean anything to you?
Charlie's right.
He deserves better.
That's what she wanted, and so did I.
We just didn't know where.
Charlie thought you would.

Can you reach her?

Iron Tiger, do you copy?
CHARLIE: I copy, Polar Bear.
Go for Iron Tiger.
MADISON: Charlie, come back.
You were right about Nick.
He does deserve better.
If you brought him all the way
back from Texas for me,
then you should be there
when we say goodbye.
I can't come back, Madison.
You can.
You don't have to do
what I asked you to do.
You were just a kid.
You don't have to make up
for what you did to Nick.
No. I mean I can't come back.

TROY: Turn off the radio.
Step out of the truck.
They found me before I got to the hotel,
and they're not gonna let me leave.
Where are you? How did they find you?
It didn't work.
They were patrolling the road.
I said step out of the truck.
I have gasoline.
It's good. It still burns.
We can make a deal.
Why would I make a deal
for something that I can just
MADISON: Charlie, where are you?
I repeat Where are you?
And why would I trust anyone
talking to Madison Clark?
Come on. Out of the truck.
You and me have a lot to talk about.
Charlie, do you copy?
We can't give away our location.
You should've never put
that idea in her head.
I was trying to do the right thing.
You want to do the right thing now?
Help me rescue her.
Daniel's right. We have
to go and get her.
You said if we got anywhere
close to that hotel,
- we'd suffer major losses.
- We have to try.
Well, it looks like we're
finally taking the fight
to Troy.


- How many more are left?
- That was the last one.
She's awake now, so just release them
after I'm finished with her.
You got it.
You don't scare me.

I find it easier to talk when
things are a little more, uh
I wouldn't try and run, though.
Last person who tried that,
they messed up their feet so bad,
they just made it half a mile
before the dead found them.
Why are you cutting their arms off?
Well, you gotta pass the time somehow.
You want Madison to think
they're Alicia.
Why did you kill her?
I'm the one asking the questions.
And seeing as it sounds like
I'm not the only person
to have killed a Clark, I gotta know
Is what Madison said true?
Did you kill Nick?
He was a friend of mine.
More like a brother, actually.
Yeah, we were better suited
to this world than the last one.
At least that's what I thought
until I heard what happened.
So why is Madison trying to protect you?
She's giving me a second chance.
You believe all that kumbaya bullshit?
'Cause if you do,
it's gonna get you killed.
No one gave any of us a second chance.
What do you want from me?
I want to know where PADRE is.
Why do you care?
Because we need somewhere
to set up shop.
A place that people like Madison
can't take from us.
What's wrong with this place?
Well, we took this place
in an afternoon.
I need someplace more secure,
someplace that, uh,
nobody can take from us.
Someplace you can take from Madison.
Well, that's just
the icing on the cake.
Well, I don't know where PADRE is.
And I don't believe you.
We've made gas for the settlement,
but I've never been there.
We left tankers at drop points.
And I still don't believe you.
It's the truth.
All right.
I guess we're gonna see
how fast you can run
with glass in your feet.
Yeah, I thought that might jog
your memory.
There's a map in the tanker truck.
It lists all the drop sites.
Maybe you can figure out
where PADRE is from them.
Russell, send someone to check
and make sure she's telling the truth.

MAN: Take cover! Take cover!
God damn it! Tanker just blew sky-high!
Secure the compound!
I want to know where everyone is!
I want a head count right now!
What the hell was that, huh?
Was it on a timer?
You wanted us to bring
that tanker in, didn't you?
You really think we'd be stupid enough
to bring that thing in here?
All right. I want a status report.
MAN: Walls intact. Working on the count.
We gotta get that fire out
before it draws more dead.
You're gonna help me find PADRE,
whether you know where it is or not.

What the hell was that?
RUSSELL: before it draws back
the dead we released.
How big is the fire?
SOLDIER: The whole thing went up!
It's spreading fast!
RUSSELL: On my way.
Look for leaking fuel and contain it.
- Must've been the tanker.
- How far is the hotel?
VICTOR: Ten minutes by foot.
- Let's drive, then.
- Nope.
They'll hear us coming.
We have to find a way to get in quietly.
TROY: Madison, you there?

What the hell happened, Troy?
What's going on?
Your tanker just exploded
outside my hotel.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Charlie wanted to be captured.
Must've been part of her plan.
Don't play dumb with me, Madison.
I know you sent Charlie here.
Is she okay?
She wasn't in the truck
when it went sky-high,
if that's what you mean.
You know, I was wrong about you.
Didn't think you'd ever be able
to forgive the girl
who killed Nick.
You must trust her
if you sent her to kill me.
Or maybe you just thought
she would die in the blast.
I guess we'll find out.
Don't hurt her, Troy.
- So you do care about her.
I wonder what Nick
would think about that.
He'd get it.
People change, Troy.
They can do shitty things
and come back from them.
[CHUCKLES] Well, I'm
I'm glad you think so.
'Cause you're gonna have to do something
that'll upset a lot of people
if you want Charlie back alive.
What's that?
I want to know where PADRE is.
He's gonna hit us with
everything he's got.
She doesn't deserve this. You know that.
What's it gonna be, Madison?
Is it gonna be the girl,
or is it gonna be PADRE?
Don't tell him, Madison!
- Shut up!
- Don't tell him! I knew what I was doing!

I'm gonna strangle him
with my bare hands!
Get in the truck.
TROY: Hear that, Madison?
I will kill her
if you don't tell me
what I want to know.
Meet me in front of the hotel.
I'll tell you where PADRE is.

MADISON: Victor,
it's missing an arm, too.
Where the hell are they coming from?
I don't know.
TROY: Hold it!
A lot more of us inside.
Better not be a trick, Madison.
No trick. You have my word.
Not sure that's worth a hell of a lot.
Where's Charlie?
We need to make sure she's okay.
We'll hand her over
when we get the location.
- Put her on.
- If you hurt her
Then what?
Let me guess. You'll take my other eye.
I'm gonna make you wish
I only took the other eye.
You okay, Charlie?
I'm fine.
I'm fine.
But don't do it, Madison.
Don't make the trade for me.
You're in there because
I asked you to go.
Hand her over, then we give you
the location of PADRE.
No, we don't hand her over
until you give us the location.
How do I know you're gonna
hold up your end of the deal?
Because one of your people is gonna take
my right-hand man to the location.
And if he verifies that
you're not bullshitting us,
then you get the girl.
I really don't give a shit
about the girl, Madison.
I just want a safe place to live.
Why do you care so much about PADRE?
Because you took everything from me.
I'm just doing the same for you.
Is this about Jeremiah?
You really think I give a shit
about my old man?
Then what the hell is it about?
What did I take from you?
It doesn't matter.
All that matters is PADRE.
All right. You heard him.
Escort his man there.
There must be another way
to bring her back.
If there is, tell me what it is.
I don't know.
But there are other people to consider.
Frank, Klaus.
I need your assurance
that you won't hurt
the people already living there.
I'm not interested in the people.
Just the settlement.
People will have ample time to leave.
Okay. I'll drive.

No weapons.
No one tries anything funny.
It's okay, Charlie. We're
getting you out of there.
MAN: Hey! What the hell are you doing?
What was that?
I took out one of his guys.
I'll take out another.
You don't have to do this, Charlie.
I don't want you to do this.
I'm not gonna watch
another place you built
fall because of me.
This is not on you.
This is not the stadium.
I'm the one who set you on this path.
TROY: She's right.
Why are you taking the fall for her?
It's not for her.
The place she's building,
it's what Alicia wanted.
And it's how Nick's death
can mean something.
On the rafts, when we left the Tower,
Victor told me that's
what Alicia said to him
when she thought she was dying
"Make it mean something".
We can do that someplace else.
No. You heard him. This is about you.
He'll just go after
the next place you find.
They won't kill me.
If he shoots me, Troy doesn't
get what he wants.
She's right, Troy. She's your leverage.
If you kill her, you will
never find where PADRE is.
No one's gonna shoot anybody. All right?
Just put the gun down
and let us work it out.
Let her go.
And you can have it.
Send your man to verify it.
Just don't hurt her.
Don't give him the location.
It's not your choice, Charlie.
Yes, it is.
You won't have to give him PADRE
if he doesn't have anything to trade.

- No!
- Charlie!
Did you stop her?
MAN: She's dead.
She's not dead! You're lying!
You heard him.
I'm so sorry.
I'm gonna kill you for this!
[GRUNTS] Let me go!
This is really not how I wanted
this to go, Madison, but I
I can't let you leave
with that location.
I'm gonna need that map.
Can't do that.
It's Tracy. She's missing.
What do you What do you mean?
Where did she go?
- Tell him!
- There's kids in there?
Why do you think we wanted PADRE?
The same reason as you.
Where did she go?
She wanted to see the tanker truck.
She said she'd never seen
a truck running before.
Stay on them!
Tracy! Tracy!


- Aah!

TROY: What the hell are you doing?
Your men are overwhelmed.
I wasn't gonna let another kid
die after what just happened.
Whose kid is it?
She wasn't in the cab.
She wasn't in the cab!
We can't hold them back, Troy!
- The dead are everywhere.
- No, no, no, no.
You search the area! All of you!
Check the perimeter now!
It's your kid.
Why'd you think we wanted PADRE?
Why didn't you tell us what you wanted
instead of trying to take it?
What, so you could just take
my daughter from me, too?
I didn't take anyone from you.
That's not true.
Her mother's dead because of you.
I don't know what you're talking about.
I don't have time for this, Madison.
Search the area!


You're the one who's been
cutting their arms off.
You're the one who's been
making me think
she's everywhere I look!
Why did you kill her?!
Who do you think I took from you?
The woman who rescued me from the dam.
The woman who gave me a second chance.
Please. I need to find my girl.
No! Now you're gonna know what it's like
to be wondering where your kid is.
Mine could still be alive.
Madison! We need to get out of here!
You killed her!


Use the fuel wisely, Madison.
You won't be getting any more.
- Luciana
- We lost Charlie.
And now Troy knows about my people.
We're at risk. Why?
Because I let myself get dragged
into a fight that isn't mine.
I'm not gonna let anyone else
end up like Charlie.
Luciana, wait. I want to go with you.
You sent Charlie to a viper's nest.
There's something fundamentally
wrong with you, Madison.
Charlie's the second time
somebody dear to me dies
because of you.
There won't be a third.
We need you.
You don't need me.
You need the army I assembled.
If you can convince the parents
of the children you stole
that you changed,
I can no longer defend that idea.



What he said It's not true.
It is, Victor.
I sent Charlie in there
to make her pay for
what she did to Nick.
Doesn't matter I changed my mind.
She's dead.
Who do you think Troy was talking about?
Why do you think he believes
that you killed the mother of his child?
I don't know.
But I can't go back to PADRE with you.
- What do you mean?
- Daniel's right.
I can't ask anyone to follow me
after what I just did.
We're not building PADRE for you.
We're building PADRE
for Alicia, for Nick,
for Frank and Klaus.
If I stay, it's not gonna happen.
You have to do it.
You have to keep the promise
you made to Alicia.
I need you. I can't do this alone.

You're gonna have to.

Who told you about me?
We need you.


You should have killed me
when you have the chance!

WOMAN: Sherry.

MAN: Whoever is here, show yourself.

- Luciana.
- Madison.
CHAMBLISS: In this episode
we are reintroduced to Luciana
and we get to see where she's
been for the past seven years,
and I think out of all the characters,
Luciana may be the one
who has figured out
how to kind of navigate
the world that PADRE
has set up to not just
her own advantage,
but to all of the people
she has following her.
When they brought me in seven years ago,
they realized what I could do.
Yes, she was supplying
gasoline to PADRE,
but at the same time,
she was also able to use
that gasoline to set up
her own network of roads
and of gas stations to help people.
And we get a real sense
of how she was helping people
and creating this network
of people she felt loyal to
when we see who one of her workers is,
and that person is Charlie.
What the hell is going on?
It's complicated.
I shot Nick.
I killed your son.

- What?
- Madison learning that Charlie,
the person that she brought
into the stadium was responsible
for killing her son
is a gut punch of gut punches.
- Madison. No!
- MAN: Come on, Charlie, go, go, go.
GOLDBERG: Not only
is she angry at Charlie,
she's also angry at herself
because it makes her feel
responsible for her son's death
to a certain degree.
Madison kind of goes bananas.
Madison. Madison. Come on.
No! No.
And then she does
spitefully make a decision
that puts Charlie in danger.
You snuck into the stadium.
You fooled me, Victor, everyone.

I need you to do the same with Troy.
GOLDBERG: Madison comes to regret
her decision to send Charlie in.
And the tragic part is that by the time
Madison reaches this conclusion,
Charlie's already in a really
difficult place with Troy,
and it leads to her
having to make a sacrifice
in order to protect what Madison
is building in PADRE.
Don't give him the location.
It's not your choice, Charlie.
Yes, it is.

CHAMBLISS: In the aftermath
of Charlie's sacrifice,
all of our characters are very divided.
You know, as much as this season
is about kind of family,
we find this episode ends
with that family being split up.
I can't go back to PADRE with you.
I need you.
I can't do this alone.
DOMINGO: I wanted to make sure
that when she said,
"I'm not going with you",
that it was definitive.
That's not "Oh, I'm just going
to go off for a while
and I'll meet you at another time.
We'll get together again". This is it.
That division has to be very clear.
It has to be very hard
and heartbreaking for both of them.
You're gonna have to.
Because so much has happened now,
I think that Madison realizes
that it's probably best for them
to just go their separate ways.
So, the end of this episode
really leaves
all of our characters separated,
all of our characters kind of
at their lowest points
we've seen them at this season,
and that's not a place
that they want to be
when they have Troy Otto opposite them,
kind of ramping up
for an attack on PADRE.
