Freakish (2016) s01e04 Episode Script


1 WOMAN: Previously on "Freakish" I got bit.
MAN: Keyword? Flashpoint Zulu.
MAN: Welcome back, Zulu.
Grover will do anything he can to save her.
That's exactly why we can't trust him.
[snarls] [beep] Um, my battery is almost out, so I'm making this message for Mom and Papa and and Ninny, if you find this first, which you always do.
It's been two days.
We're still trapped in the school.
There's no sign of help.
We don't know who's out there.
We haven't made contact with anyone yet.
We're doing our best, but I don't know how long we can last.
Dad I wish we spent more time together.
Some of that was on me.
And Mom what can I say? I guess I'm just a disappointment.
First failed diet, first election lost, first teen pregnancy.
I just thought you should know.
[eerie music] Noodle, are you insane? I'm going crazy, man.
I just need normal.
You're shooting bricks.
Looks pretty normal to me.
Oh, really? Think so? Come on, one time.
Let's run it, me and you.
I'm about to break your ankles.
This is not the time, bro.
- You'll never beat me.
- Ohh! Ever in your life.
[tense music] Mary? [snarls] [grunts] [snarling] Mary.
It's me, it's Grover.
Mary, it's your brother.
Mary, please! - WOMAN: Grover? - [snarls] No.
No, no, no, no, no! Whoo.
Beginner's luck.
I'll see you in an hour.
What you mean? We're not done.
Gotta go check on Zoey.
Oh, so my love's not good enough for you? [kisses] [suspenseful music] [doors creaking] Shit.
I thought you were that.
What was that? It was Mary.
She's turned.
Come on.
And there's five seconds left in the game.
The inbound pass to Deveraux.
He passes it to Noodle.
Can Noodle do it? For the title.
Can it be? [tense music] [rattling] - Everyone grab a weapon.
- You said the north stairs? - North? - Yeah.
Those go one flight up, two flights down.
She could be anywhere.
All right, well, that's seven.
We're missing one.
Yo, he's in the gym.
- He doesn't know.
- Yeah, go.
Zoey, you never mind.
Okay, Diesel, Natalie, second floor.
Come on.
[suspenseful music] Mary? Mary? Mary, everything is gonna be okay.
I can't do this.
I have a baby in here.
I'm like a walking goddamn Happy Meal.
So why was it a mistake? What? Having a baby, you said it was a mistake, right? Making a baby was the mistake.
Who's the guy? Does it matter? You even know? No.
I'm a total slut.
Yes, of course I know.
It was Model UN in Philly.
I was Denmark.
He was Greece.
So what did he say about the baby? He doesn't know.
You didn't even tell him? Hey, where are you going with this? Right here.
Diesel, what are you doing? No, Diesel! You're right, you can't do this.
- It's not safe.
- Diesel! [tense music] Looks clear.
We can't trust Grover.
Not anymore.
He cares too much.
Isn't that why we should trust him? [scoffs] Don't go bleeding heart on me.
It's not like you.
You don't know me.
I know enough.
Don't worry, neither one of us are saints.
And what is that supposed to mean? [chuckles] [loud bang] Okay.
Stay close.
Who's saving who? Hmm, "whom.
" "Saving whom.
" [all gasp] I'm sorry.
I didn't know it was you guys.
Any sign of her? No.
- Cafeteria's clear.
- I'll take this floor.
We'll take upstairs.
[tense music] - Noodle! - Are you insane? Shut up.
There's two of us.
We have an advantage.
- Noodle! - Shut up.
Why don't you start handing out menus? Look, you gotta relax.
It's nothing, okay? - [distant banging] - That was not nothing.
Come here, Zoey.
Look at me.
We don't have time.
We got this, okay? Come on, grab my hand.
Stay right here.
Stay right here, stay right here.
- [rattling] - [gasps] Sean.
Sean? [snarling] Mary.
Sean! Sean! Sean! [snarling] [screams] [grunting] [screams] [panting] I got you, I got you.
What happened? - No.
- Noodle.
We have to go.
[intense music] [snarling] [snarling] What exactly do you know about me? Can this wait? I'd like to die with a clean conscience.
Good luck with that.
Look, we all have files about us.
You looked at my files? [both panting] Did she get you anywhere? I don't know.
- What happened to your knee? - That's not my blood.
[sighs] It's okay.
It's okay.
Will you please, please stop talking? Will you just tell me what you know? Look, we've all done things we shouldn't.
Sometimes they land us in detention.
Sometimes they should land us in jai.
I've never been to jail.
Lucky you, thief.
Look, whatever you found out, it's not what you think.
You feel guilty.
I get that.
But your nagging conscience is embedded deep in your brain, and your brain is about to get ripped out by a freak.
So for the love of God Noodle's dead.
Mary's still loose.
We tried.
Where? The gym lockers, three minutes ago.
Where's Grover? [gentle music] Mary.
[snarls] [intense music] [grunting] [grunting, snarling] Let's consider the calculus.
Calculus? That thing killed Noodle.
It ripped him up and it drank his blood.
- It has to die.
- I'll do it.
No, no, no! You are not killing her.
That is my sister in there.
That thing? It killed my best friend.
That thing is Mary Jones.
She loves Harry Potter, and she's afraid of heights, and I swear to you she's still in there somewhere.
Look at her.
She's suffering.
For all we know, she could get better, right? - They-they all could get better.
- I'm not about to find out.
Grover has a point.
We know very little about this disease.
If we keep this thing alive, we can learn how to defend ourselves.
Don't listen to him.
- Just - Okay, yeah, sure, kill it.
We can always find another one later.
How hard can that be? You lie to us again, I'm gonna kill you both.
[wind whistling] [tense music] [gentle music] Hey.
How you holding up? I've been better.
This whole thing's my fault.
Trust me, it's not.
I couldn't protect her.
Stop beating yourself up.
You did everything you could.
Do you really believe that? Yeah.
Do you think she'll ever come back? [snarling] [tense music] [radio static] MAN: Keyword? Flashpoint Zulu.
Who are you talking to? Um, myself.
I'm starting to lose my mind.
I came in here to say thanks.
You did the right thing, keeping her alive.
You mean the most useful thing, and you're not here to thank me.
It's amazing what you can learn with a few hours of static and nothing but student files.
So I stole.
Big whoop.
Mm, chemicals.
And not the kind you make soap and candles with.
Rust and aluminum powder.
For ceramics.
It was a glaze.
Very combustible glaze.
Burns right through metal.
What type of art are you doing? May I take a stab? I think you used the chemicals to make a thermite bomb.
Doesn't prove anything.
Not on its own.
However, only a few days after you stole the chemicals, there's a catastrophic fire at the chemical plant.
Quite the coincidence.
And what are you suggesting? Nothing.
Only that you might have been responsible for the entire disaster.
Bite me.
We all have our crosses to bear.
Maybe one day you'll tell me yours.
You didn't have to trick me.
Yeah? What should I have done? You could have said, "Hey, there's a freak on the loose, and I'm doing this for your own good.
" Yeah, okay, like that would have worked.
You're about to sleep there.
Don't you tuck yourself in? No, I don't like feeling trapped.
Well, for me, a bed needs to be made.
Yeah, but you don't have to pull up the blanket.
[stammers indistinctly] All right.
[suspenseful music] [snarling] - What did you do to her? - Hey! You tell me right now what you've done to her.
Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, hold up.
What'd he do? He's torturing my sister! Okay, I am studying her.
Don't lie to me.
You're burning her.
Hey, I never burned her.
It was just a test.
And it turns out, I was right.
They're afraid of fire.
So now we have a weapon against freaks.
Son of a bitch We kept your sister alive so we could survive.
Show of hands, who thinks I'm doing the right thing? Doing the right thing would have been killing her.
Tie vote.
Violet? What are you waiting for? Violet, she's still my sister.
I mean, she's a human being.
Think of it as the greatest good for the greatest number.
What is most useful? Violet.
I can't do this.
We all have our crosses to bear.
Raise your hand, and we keep studying her.
I'm sorry, Grover.
How could you side with that asshole? Barrett has a point.
The more we know about how this disease works You don't understand.
My sister's in a cage.
What is she, some sort of animal? Yesterday she was playing Tchaikovsky.
Today she killed Noodle.
You have a brother.
What would you do for him? Hmm? If he was so far gone to the point I couldn't even recognize him, I don't know.
[gentle music] If it were me in that cage, suffering I know what I'd want.
[snarling] I'm so sorry.
