All Good Things

Previously on From If these voices are real, if something here is communicating with you, then that means you're connected to this place in a way that no one else here is.
But we need proof.
What is this? They said they watched you bury the bag and that this is proof that they're real.
Do you know what that means? Can I have my pillow back? I just want to take a nap and it's sort of like a security blanket for me, you know? Yeah, I totally get it.
I'm sorry again.
You know, it's kinda funny.
I have a shirt just like that.
Oh, I know.
I got this out of your suitcase.
What's wrong? I think maybe I-I made a mistake.
I knew all about the divorce and how this whole trip was just one last hurrah before you sat us down to break the news.
Thomas is dead! You have two other kids! Why aren't we enough for you? What is that? A Farway Tree.
How does it do that? I don't know.
But guess what.
- What? - It works for people too.
Really? Problem is, you never know where you'll end up.
There's no wire in here.
- What? - In the cord.
And the plug? Look.
None of it makes any sense.
Mom! Everything about this is impossible, but we can find out where those wires go.
There was this weird fucking symbol right on the ceiling! What are you looking for? Hmm? I have this crazy idea that might actually work, and And if it does, I might be able to find a way to get these people home.
They're so beautiful.
I'm so glad you like them.
When can I come inside? What? Not acceptable.
No way.
Oh, let's not make a big deal.
It's a party, you guys, like - Okay, pick one.
- Um, this one.
I don't know, it just seems kinda weird to be celebrating the day that you got stuck here.
You're looking at this the wrong way.
It's about celebrating survival.
It reminds everybody that it's possible.
Besides, it's nice having a little party once in a while.
Okay, what are you looking for? I am not looking.
I am digging.
Aha! Here it is.
It's my secret stash.
Trudy loves this sweater.
It's the one thing I own that I don't let her get her hands on.
Besides, it is Ellis' favorite.
What? Nothing.
Uh You just you make this place seem almost normal.
You're really special.
Don't be silly.
We're all really special.
Even Trudy.
That's something a really special person would say.
There's my girls.
Uh, anybody up for a little pregame? Baby, the party hasn't even started yet.
I know! I know! That's why they call it pregame.
What? Nothing.
Just go easy, okay? Yeah, I know.
I know.
I know.
Uh, Julie? - How 'bout you? - Uh I'm good, thanks.
Okay, whatever.
You guys suck.
Victor? Victor, where you at, man? Let's get this party started! Is he okay? Nights like this are just a little tough for him.
As much as you celebrate the people who make it, you also remember the ones who didn't.
Here, you should wear this.
It'll look really cute.
Okay, come on, man.
I mean, you of all people should be hammered today.
I mean, how many years have you been here for? Please leave me alone.
- Oh - Ellis! Ellis! You want a shot? Okay.
Donna, there's no more peaches.
I know.
We're, uh We're all out.
They're gone? I thought I had a few more cans stashed away in the basement, but, uh I've been putting some other things aside for you.
Some fruit cocktail.
Some cranberries The peaches are gone.
All these years, that's That's the one thing that's never changed, and now they're gone.
I'm sorry, Victor.
Kevin, come on! It'll be dark soon.
"There was so much joy on the faces" "of all the new wondrous friends she had made," "so much magic in all the marvelous places she had been.
" "Yet the Cromenockle had a feeling "there was still more yet to come, "and that her adventures in this strange new world truly had just only begun.
" Jade? I say you could come in? My mom wants us to get dinner started.
Come on.
- What are you doing? - What the hell, man? - I was reading this! - There's no other paper here! That doesn't mean start drawing in my fucking book.
You want me to write on your walls? Like a psychopath?! What are you doing out here? I, uh, think there's some things we need to talk about.
In private.
All right, come by in the morning.
I think we should do this now.
It's important.
I guess we're having a sleepover then.
Come on in.
Looks like you're going somewhere.
I was gonna come by and talk to you about all this.
Well, we have more to talk about than I thought.
He's completely passed out.
Well, pretty sure you violated about a dozen child labor laws by having him dig in the basement all day.
No, he was having fun.
He just wanted to help.
I get so nervous every time I take my eyes off him.
Yeah, me too.
But, look, windows are nailed shut.
The doors are locked.
He couldn't let one of those things in if he tried.
Yeah, yeah.
Fuck! And then I think about Julie up in that house.
Donna, the lady who runs the place, she might be a But she's definitely not stupid.
How's it going? Well provided I can convince the sheriff to let me use all of their building materials, not to mention drain every single battery they've got, and get Donna to allow us to build on the high ground at Colony House, should be just promising enough for everyone to hate me when it fails.
Oh, come on, don't say that.
You got a signal.
No, come on.
I got static.
That's a far cry from a signal.
Well, but it's something.
It matters.
And look, look on the bright side, at least we've got our hole in the basement to fall back on.
Or in.
Or in.
I'm gonna head back down.
Best get to it.
Oh, shit.
Hey, watch where you're going, man.
Hey, hey, hey.
Hey! Hold on.
- Hey.
- Maybe slow down a little bit.
Hey, I'm I'm fine.
I'm fine.
It's a party, right? Don't worry.
Is everything okay? Yeah, I think so.
He said not to worry, so I'm going to worry.
All right, everybody settle down now! - Everybody! - We should go.
Yeah, yeah, yes.
Hey, shut your fucking mouths! All right.
We are here tonight to celebrate a very special anniversary.
One year ago today Our dear sweet Fatima came into our lives.
Some of you were here then, many of you arrived since.
But all of you have come to know her and to love her, for her kindness, for her strength, for her wisdom And for her weed! The green thumb is definitely a big plus.
Our greenhouse never smelled so good.
But, uh, seriously, the truth is you've made this big old drafty box feel a little bit more like home.
Happy anniversary, sweet pea.
Donna Thank you.
This is so beautiful.
May it catch all the bad dreams And let only the sweet ones reach you.
- Come here.
- Thank you.
We are so lucky to have you.
So lucky to have All right with the mushy.
All right, everybody, you all know the protocol.
Drink, smoke, have fun, keep an eye on each other.
- Cheers! - Cheers.
Cheers, baby.
Happy anniversary, gorgeous.
Thank you.
Look at what she got me.
She made this herself.
Aw! So, that's the plan.
Find a way outta here once and for all before it all comes crashing down around us.
Your turn.
I buried this bag the day I arrived.
Open it.
Holding out on me? This yours? I'm not talking about the shirt.
I'm talking about the blood.
There's another item in the bag.
I mean, what what is it? What the fuck is going on? We've never really discussed who we used to be before we came here.
There was this young boy in my congregation.
He was quiet, sensitive.
He used to get so excited when his mother let him put a dollar in the collection plate.
One day, after mass, I found him lingering outside the rectory and it was unusual.
You know, he wasn't really the type of kid to stray too far from his parents.
They were very, um strict rigid.
And I get it.
Parents, they worry about their kids, and sometimes you have I'm sorry.
Do you mind? Anyway, the point is the boy was upset.
He asked if he could stay a while.
But I had to prepare for evening mass and I didn't want the parents to worry.
So I, uh I went to my drawer and I pulled out a candy bar.
I, uh I always keep a stash for the neighborhood kids.
I could see he didn't want to go.
But I handed it to him and I sent him on his way.
Later that evening, I, uh I went by the house.
It was a bit unorthodox.
You know, I'm not really in the habit of making house calls, but something was nagging me and I just As I walked up the driveway, the mother, she came running out, hysterical inconsolable.
She was And I could smell the alcohol the moment I stepped through the door.
The father was just standing there with this panicked, dumbfounded look on his face.
"Get up! Get up!" he said.
I walked over and I stepped in the room, and there he was.
This sweet, innocent boy, just laying there, broken.
His neck was bulging in a way It was And I could see, in his pocket the candy bar.
"He'll be fine.
" That's what the father said.
"He'll be fine.
" It was the way he said it.
Sounded indignant.
The next thing I knew, I was on top of him, smashing his face as hard as I could.
I couldn't stop.
I just kept hitting him over and over again.
I couldn't stop.
Even when I felt the bones in my hand start to break, I couldn't stop.
I was the one who was supposed to listen.
I was the one who was supposed to defend the defenseless.
That sweet little boy came to me begging for help, and all I could do was give him a candy bar.
A fucking candy bar! The next thing I remember, I was standing on a bridge, holding that bottle in my hand.
And it was the first time in my life that I heard the voice of God.
He told me to get back in the car, that there was another path for me to follow.
So I did.
I got back in the car and I drove, and two hours later, I was here.
Why are you telling me all this now? Because I have Sara tied up in the basement of the church.
Look, I've always known that there's a reason we're here, that there's a path we're meant to follow, and I know it may seem Tell me you're joking.
- Boyd - Tell me you are motherfucking joking! Are you gonna shoot me? I might fucking shoot you, yeah! You told me that Frank broke the rules.
Frank had to go in the box! And now you just That girl That girl may be the key to unlocking all this.
That girl may be the way we all go home.
Keep talking.
Jasmine! What's wrong? I only came to say goodbye.
What? Wait, wait, wait.
I don't understand.
Just please talk to me.
Why won't you let me in? You know why.
I can't.
Please, just stay and talk with me.
You said you liked me.
I do! I can't keep coming here, knowing I'll see you but never get to feel you, knowing you're afraid of me, that you're disgusted by me.
It You always tell me how lonely you are in there.
You have no idea how lonely it is out here.
It wasn't my choice to be this way.
Goodbye, Kevin.
Wait, wait.
You know, there's a party going on downstairs.
Everyone's having a really good time.
But you are the only one that I want to be with.
You are the only one that I can really talk to.
You promise it'll just be you? No one else can get in? Not once we shut the window, I promise.
And now, the question is How many dimensions are there? Bosonic string theorists believe there are 26 dimensions, but superstring theorists say there's only 10.
And is that what this place is? Another dimension? Oh, no, no.
This is a pocket universe.
Oh, my God.
For Christ's sake, man, enough.
It's not a pocket universe; it's not whatever the fuck you think it is, and nobody gives a fuck.
So why don't you shut the fuck up, man? Yeah, okay, have another drink.
All right, calm down.
Jesus! - Hey! - What are you gonna do about it? Huh? - Hey! All right, okay.
- What are you gonna do? Take him upstairs before he starts shooting up the place.
- No, no, no, no! - Hey, hey, hey! That's enough.
That's enough! Now, ease up! You okay? Hey, you okay? Yeah, I'm sorry.
I, um I'm just gonna go upstairs and lay down.
I'll come with you.
Nah, it's fine.
It's fine.
Hey, I'm just, uh It's your night.
Just stay.
Goddamn animal.
Like mother, like son.
You stay the fuck outta my sight.
Now, close the window, quick.
See? Just the two of us.
Just the two of us.
My handsome boy.
Your hands are so warm.
Did you think they would be cold? Kiss me.
What? Dinner's ready.
I'm not hungry.
You've been staring at that book for a day and a half, maybe you should - Just fuck off.
Just fuck off.
- You know what, Jade? Okay! Okay! Okay! Okay! I'm coming! Jesus! Uh, I wouldn't take too long if I were you.
You know, you should really work on your party face.
What are you doing, sitting here all by yourself? You don't have to.
I know you don't like me.
That's not true.
I just It's such a nice party.
You'll get one too.
I don't think I will.
Take off your shirt.
What? I'm not gonna lie.
You drive me crazy sometimes.
But we're in this together.
You're not alone.
Really? Think of it as an early gift for your anniversary.
You know what? Much as I hate to admit, it looks better on you.
That's wildly untrue.
But thank you.
I'm gonna find something to give you, too.
Excuse me.
That was nice of you.
Everybody needs a little pick-me-up sometimes.
Can I ask you something? Sure.
Uh, that girl that you That you kissed before? Who? Stacey? Yeah, she's great.
Yeah, I'm just I thought you and Ellis were together.
Oh, God, yeah.
Yeah, no.
Ellis, he's he's my person.
That thing with Stacey, that's just, you know, fooling around.
Oh, okay.
Do you think Could I kiss you? Oh, um, Julie No.
I was I was just kidding.
I didn't mean - No, sweetie - No, you know what? Just forget it.
So, this girl tells you she's hearing voices and you just Look, I was skeptical.
Just like you, okay? But then she showed me this.
Look at that.
That's the logo I know what it is.
That was almost three years ago.
Sara and Nathan have been here, what? Four, five months? All right, so you told someone, someone told Sara I never told a soul.
Boyd, there was no possible way she could have known.
Something was watching me that day, the same thing that told Sara And you think this thing is trying to help us? By killing an old man and a child? Whatever it is, it's a part of the fabric of this place.
Okay? Whatever connection Sara has makes her valuable in ways we may not even understand yet.
Okay, now if you want to put her in the box, that's fine.
I'm not gonna stop you.
But if you're serious about finding answers the fact that you're going on this journey at the same time that this connection is revealed, that's not just a coincidence.
That's providence.
So, what are you suggesting? That we go with you, Sara and I.
Okay? We use this connection to our advantage.
So, a priest, a sheriff, and a murdering psycho walk into a bar.
Yeah, something like that, yeah.
What? If we go any deeper, we're gonna need a taller ladder.
Well, we'll go as deep as we have to.
Here, come here.
Let me take a look at that.
I'm fine, really.
"Fine" is not a word I would use to describe any of us at this point.
- Ow! - That's it.
- Oof! - Little bit harder? Why don't you take a break? Go sit with Ethan for a bit.
I'll take over here.
Are you stuck on your antenna? - Yeah.
Pretty much.
- Ow.
Go slow, please.
Oh, my God.
How's that? It's amazing.
Can I come in? I'd rather you didn't.
Please? This is the only place in this house I can be alone.
Well, sort of.
- You look sad.
- Can I just come in? I'm having a really bad night.
Are you going somewhere? It looks like you're packing.
No, I'm just No.
It's hard to explain.
Why did you dig those graves? I don't want to talk about that.
Are these from all the cars that have come into town? Yes, that's right.
On my first night, down by the pantry, you said that two cars hadn't come to town on the same day for a really long time, and that it was special.
Why? You've been here the longest out of anyone.
Do you know what this place is? Seriously, man, I don't know why you keep staring at that thing.
I'm sorry.
Hold on.
This page, it's What? There's two pages stuck together here.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Now, we're talking.
Victor! Holy shit.
You're gonna go to a new home now.
I'm gonna give you to Fatima.
She's gonna take such good care of you.
What are you laughing at? Hi, Trudy.
How how do you know my name? We know all your names.
I'm just saying I've been here longer than him.
Deserve a little respect.
I could really help this place if they just What the? Is that blood? Jeez What the? Ah! They're in the house! They're inside! Ellis? Have you seen Ellis? Ellis! Follow protocol! Where's the van?! Hide! What's going on? It's starting.

You have to warn him.
You have to tell him it's starting.
I don't know what you're talking about! He will.
- Go, go, go! - No, wait! I'll be right behind you.
If we do this, and I mean "if" and she even blinks the wrong way You do what you need to do.
But we're goin' out there and we're gonna find answers.
We're gonna find a way, Boyd.
This, this is why I was told to get back in the car.
So that you and I can go out there and find a way to bring these people home.
You're a fucking madman.
You know that, right? Bible's full of 'em.
What the fuck? What happened?! I what happened?! They got in and they - Wait! Where's Ellis? - I don't know! - Where is Ellis? - I don't know! Sorry! Everybody inside.
