Glitch (2015) s02e06 Episode Script

Season 2, Episode 6

You raped and murdered me.
You're helping him get away with it.
If you don't leave now, I'm going to arrest you for disturbing the peace.
So you knew that it was Pete all this time? He's my brother.
After Paddy died, Kalinda's people were hunted, hunted down like dogs! And now it's your burden or your redemption.
What the hell are you doing here? It's not safe here.
You shouldn't be just walking Oof! Get away from me! So this worked, then? I think we're ready.
Kate? Kate! I'll come back later! I wish you'd been my dad.
Paddy! Paddy! Glitch 2x06 You killed Elishia McKellar.
A dead woman.
How's that possible? Why? You murdered Vic.
Shot him in the head.
Are you like Vic? Yes, but he failed.
So what are you? Because Phil Holden died on that oil rig.
Well, this is his body.
His pretty face.
In here are all his memories, his history, all his shit.
So what you're telling me that you've possess his body.
like a demon, or some kind of spirit? Or what the fuck are you? I'm Phil.
I died.
I came back.
But with a purpose to remove the aberration that was Elishia McKellar.
Why? She broke the rules, James.
What rules? The world turns.
The sun rises in the east, sets in the west.
We're born, we live, we die.
In that order.
Ah, James.
You can shoot me, but it's not going to stop anything.
This is bigger than Vic.
This is bigger than me.
How am I supposed to understand anything that you're saying? You're a cop.
You understand the need for rules.
Not your rules.
Mate, these are the laws of the universe.
You can't fight them.
You can't even see them.
What are you talking about? Gravity.
You know what that is? Yes.
And you accept that everything must obey gravity? Yes.
Everything must fall, James.
You threw that.
Oh don't tell me you don't believe in free will? Everything that lives must die.
It's a condition of the universe, and I exist to enforce that.
Who for? Does it matter? Well are we talking about God now? You're telling me you work for God, Phil? Or don't you know? You fucking child! Let me out of here, James.
James, open this fucking door! Urghh! - Beau.
- Someone shot Paddy.
He's dead.
Who shot him? - I don't know.
- Where are you? At Corona Hill.
Stay exactly there.
I'll be there soon.
There's more than one of you, isn't there? Who is it? Chris, it's James.
I need you at the station now.
Can you tell me what happened? We were just talking and then It's okay.
It's all right.
Did you see where the shot came from? What, behind the trees? I couldn't see anyone.
It's just the one shot? Yep.
Okay.
All right.
Let's go.
Now, this is a knife.
Yeah, I know.
The boundary's shrunk again.
We've gotta move.
Where to? I got sick last night over the hill at Owen's.
Someone's outside.
Kate? - Do you want to sit? - Yeah.
- Is it the cancer again? - No.
'Cause if it was, and it'd come back, you could tell me.
- That doesn't scare me.
- It's not cancer.
Well, something's wrong.
I can't tell you what's going on.
I told you the truth about me.
How much worse could this be? It's worse.
Well, in that case, I think you have to tell me.
I made a mistake with you.
Okay.
I'm still not over James.
Right.
Yeah, I see.
Sorry.
Well, I guess that's it, then.
Okay.
You took your time.
You got caught.
You and Paddy became good mates, didn't you? He turned out to be family.
I'm part Fitzgerald.
So he came looking for you? No, I I found him.
How? I saw them all, crawling out of their graves.
You were there at the cemetery? I was the one who rang the cops.
- Holy shit! - Oh, no, no, no! Here's the groundsman.
Now, you're positive this is the same stuff I was using before? - Absolutely.
- Good.
'Cause it decimated me aphids.
But you need to use all of it.
Oh, bloody oath.
Hey, what happened to that other lady? The nice doctor? She'll be back.
Can you tell me why you were at the cemetery on that first night? My Dad's buried in Perth but I can't get there, so So it was on your mind? Yeah.
Can I bury him? Sure.
Just keep it a secret, all right? You know, Phil made me take him to that farm.
I saw him dig up that dead cop.
Right.
Well I don't know what he did to him, but straight after he just turned to dust too.
Right.
Thanks, James.
25, 30 30 years or so now.
I think you'll find that, uh Beau, come sit down.
- I didn't do nothin'.
- Come back.
You're not in trouble.
You okay? Beau, this is Steve.
He's a lawyer.
He's here to make us an offer.
What offer? I've been approached by a representative of the Fitzgeralds, and it seems your antecedents are mentioned in an old will, and now Adeline Fitzgerald plans to honour it.
How? Money, Beau.
A lot of money.
It's a buyout, basically, that guarantees your family their share in the sale of Corona Hill um, and the return of ancestral artefacts.
Something about a necklace.
Anyway, all on the understanding that there be no further claims on any other family assets ever.
She considers it "full redress and restitution.
" Is that what she said? Her words exactly.
What a wanker.
A two-million-dollar wanker.
Well, minus my small fee, of course.
So did Phil say who else is like him? No.
There could be heaps of these fuckin' psychos out there.
Well we know there's more than one, and they've killed Paddy.
- Paddy's dead? - Oh, my God.
We we need to protect ourselves.
We should set up a proper barricade.
That's ridiculous.
We don't know who, we don't know how many.
What do we do? Well, we get somewhere safer than here.
It's shifted again.
This is the new boundary.
We go here.
You gotta be kidding.
Noregard is secure, it's guarded and Heysen has offered to help.
Can we trust her? We don't have a choice.
There's four left.
We'll finish them together.
All right, but you better let me handle Kate.
I already told you what happened with that.
James interrupted me.
- So you said.
- I dealt with Patrick Fitzgerald.
- I know.
- And I did it in front of that kid.
Hope he's all right.
Beau? No, he'll be fine.
He's got me now.
So if they're all mistakes then what are we? Just human.
And we'll go on, I guess.
Then we'll stop like them.
For how long? Who knows? But right now, we just live.
Is that our reward? Or punishment.
Actually, I'm starting to like it.
Why? Oh, it's always changing.
Does that hurt? Sometimes.
You do everything for her.
What does she do for you? Well, right now, nothing.
So what's the point? She is.
I do everything.
She does nothing.
It's hard.
But that's the deal.
How is that a deal? It's not, it's just love.
It's so good you called.
They'll be safe here.
I've got Elishia's killer in the lockup, but there might be others like him.
I'm gonna question him.
Can I see him? Perhaps, but you'd need to take care of these people.
You have my word.
Is William here? Yeah.
I offered him sanctuary.
In exchange for Elishia's research.
All her material belongs to the company.
No tests on them.
No harming anyone.
There won't be any need for that now.
I promise.
What do you think? Yeah.
Yeah, we'll be right.
Okay.
Okay.
If you're sure.
I'm gonna talk to Phil.
He knows.
What's wrong? I found this bullet in Paddy.
- Yeah? - It's police issue.
It's okay, you can come out.
It's okay.
Welcome.
You'll be safe here.
It's okay.
Thank you.
And no visitors, no calls.
Sure.
So this way, please.
So here we are.
Your fingers are back.
How the hell did that happen? She did it.
Elishia collect all this stuff? Everything was documented.
So do you know how we came back? I think I have a pretty comprehensive understanding.
Go on, then.
When Elishia worked here, she created some unique chemicals.
Then she used electricity to stimulate one single stem cell.
From that, she regenerated an entire body.
What do you mean? Like, copies? No.
You're not a copy of the original.
These stem cells made an original.
That's incredible.
Yes.
But just because the body's back doesn't mean that the self, and the consciousness, returns.
Well, then where does it come from? To be ourselves is to have memory.
Elishia believed that every single memory is not in the synapse, but in the protein of the brain cells.
The what? Elishia did more than theorise.
Yes, she did.
Her stroke of genius was to use sound maps to revive memories.
But I didn't remember anything at first.
How can I put it? It's a kind of, um Alzheimer's, in reverse.
That's the how.
What about the why? That's what we all want to find out, isn't it? Well, do you know why it was us that came back? No.
No reason, no science.
But right now, you are all at risk.
The effects of the original experiment are fading.
Which is why the boundary's shrinking.
Correct.
Then what the fuck are we gonna do about it? There is one thing I can do.
I can recreate the original area.
How? By recreating the original experiment.
I'll check inside.
Sarah? James.
You let Phil out.
Yeah.
And you killed Paddy.
Are you gonna tell me where you are? I can't do that.
Where is Nia? She's safe.
Where is she? Nothing's going to happen to her.
Where is she? She cannot stay with you, Sarah.
I love her.
I'm still her mother.
No, no, no, you shut the fuck up.
And I'm still your wife.
No, you are not my wife! James, can you please just listen to me? Why didn't you die?! I just wish you'd fuckin' died! You okay, mate? Empty.
But look at that.
Noregard's in the middle.
- Hello? - Hey, babe.
Hey.
Is everything all right? Thought I'd pop in, take you out for a coffee.
Well, I can't today, because I'm the only one here.
Oh, come on.
Who's gonna know? That Swedish woman from head office.
- She's got VIPs in.
- How many? Three.
Why? What's it to you? They're in there.
I need to drop Nia off first.
She's slowing us down.
It's not gonna take a minute.
Is there any danger you might bring someone else back? It's impossible to know.
Or is that part of your plan? Are you trying to bring Elishia back? David will look after you.
You need Elishia, don't you? To understand why we're back.
Each and every one of you is uniquely valuable.
What does that mean? Hey! Come back! Hey! Hey! Thank you so much, Ellen.
Ooh! I wouldn't ask unless I had to.
- It's a family emergency.
- Right.
- Oh, forgot to kiss her.
- Oh.
Bye, darling girl.
Will you let James know that she's here? Yeah, yeah.
Um are you sure you're okay? - Yeah.
- Yeah? - Yep.
- Okay.
You've developed an attachment.
Let's go.
I can't get on to Kate.
So Sarah isn't really Sarah.
She died on the operating table.
She is like Vic was.
Was? Chris, the truth is that when Vic threatened No, you know what? You you don't need to tell me.
And to be honest, I don't want to know.
There's no evidence.
No, look, it's like you said.
He was probably having an affair and he pissed off to Melbourne.
Yes? James.
It's Ellen here.
What is it? Um, oh, look, I'm just I'm a bit worried about Sarah.
Um, look, she's just dropped Nia off and I Stay there.
I'm on my way.
Where where are you going? To see my daughter.
Noregard Pharmaceuticals.
Yeah, it's, uh Phil to see Kath Macrae.
Come through.
Yes, thank you.
I told you I was busy.
What is she doing here? - What is going on? - Darlin', everything's okay.
You just need to tell me what floor Professor Heysen's on.
Uh, no, you need to piss off.
You, lady, need to get off my computer! 3B.
She's downstairs.
What? What's going on? Phil! Phil! What are you doing? Argh! Get out of here! - Shit! - Get out! - Shit! - Shit! The fire door! - It's locked.
- No.
Watch out.
It's unlocked.
It's unlocked! Go! Go! I'll cut them off upstairs.
- Charlie! - Ah! Mate, you can't come in here Oh! No! No, you go.
No way.
Get up.
Come on, go, go, go! Get up! Go, go, go, go, go! You shouldn't be here! Arghh! Get in! Fuck! Keys are in the ignition.
Can you drive? I'll look after Charlie.
What's the problem? No problem.
Argh! Ooh, this is nothing like the Datsun.
Let the clutch out! I got it.
Hang on.
The bullet's not too deep.
I can probably get it out if you can stop.
Okay.
I thought you said you could drive! Yeah, I'm still on my Ls.
She'll be fine here.
Thanks, Ellen.
Thank you.
- Kate.
- Charlie's been shot.
Is he dead? No, no, no, he's okay.
But we had to get out.
Phil got into Noregard.
He's with Sarah.
- I know it's Sarah.
- What do we do? Head to the cemetery.
We'll meet you there.
- Cemetery? - They're safe there.
That's the epicentre.
Do you know where the cemetery is? Do I! When you sent me out to the cemetery on that first night were you thinking about Kirstie Darrow? Yeah.
Why? - It's all right.
- Come on, mate.
Come on.
- That's it.
- What are you doing here? Two of them broke in! Charlie needs help.
That's them.
- We should separate.
- Go.
Go! Go! - Drop it! - Drop it! - Kirstie! - Over here! Go.
Kate! James! Where are you?! Sarah.
No! - Sarah - Move! No! - Move! - No! - Stop! - Ah! Now.
Sarah! - Now! - Sarah! Kill her! Wait! Sarah! Sarah! You're right.
Sarah, come back.
Sarah, come back! Come on.
Come on.
Come on Stay awake! Stay with me.
It's okay.
Stay with me.
Stay with me.
Stay with me.
Sarah, Sarah, stay with me, come on.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Come on.
Sarah, Sarah Sarah, come back, come back! Come on.
Come on.
No This is gonna hurt.
It's all right.
Go ahead.
Tell me when it's over.
Too little too late, mate.
I've decided I'm I'm going to reopen your case.
Why are you gonna do that? Because Kevin Brunner he wouldn't have been convicted if it wasn't for a key piece of evidence.
What evidence? A t-shirt.
Had your blood on it.
It was found at his house.
How'd that happen? I climbed in the window and I put it there.
You did? I was 10 years old.
My brother made me do it.
Well truth is he paid me to do it.
25 bucks.
I sent an innocent man to prison for 25 bucks.
Well, you can't change the past.
Pete doesn't remember anything, but not a day has gone by that I haven't thought about that.
And you.
Well, I'm glad that someone did.
Kirsten Jane Darrow.
Born April 3rd, 1969.
Died August 19th, 1988.
Missed by her parents June and Gordon Darrow and her sister, Janice.
I'm sorry.
We should destroy the body.
No.
No, don't.
- Why not? - I want to examine him.
He's dead.
We know he's not like the others.
- He's different.
- No! I don't think you have any choice, if you want all this to remain quiet.
Put him in the van.
Can you hear me? You survived.
That's excellent.
Just so we understand each other you're in my debt now.
Last time I came to this fence, I got sick.
Now it's safe.
The experiment worked.
Didn't bring Elishia back, though.
No.
I'm so sorry about Sarah.
That wasn't Sarah.
But what she did She did it for you.
I've been thinking that for every one of you that came back there was a person, just one person, longing for them, at that exact time.
And I think maybe that's what links you all.
So for each of us, there was someone? And for you it was me.
Always.
What are we gonna do, James? I don't know.
All I know is that Nia needs me.
You'll be an incredible father.
And I'm going to be okay.
Shall we go in? Yeah, but you're getting the first round.
Not if I can help it.
Back again? Yeah, we are.
You've been in the wars.
Oh, just the one.
Let me shout you a drink, then.
Yeah, sure.
I'm Josh.
Charlie.
Thanks, mate.
Oh, fuck.
- Hey.
- Hi.
So what's new? Well it's, uh it's quite a story, if you're ready to hear it.
Yeah, if you're ready to tell me.
I am.
But just so you know, I'm not crazy.
I don't think you're crazy.
Good.
I'll get us some beers.
You're gonna need them.
Well, I saw the signs, you know, the things she was saying.
Did she leave with that bloke? Yeah.
But don't blame yourself.
There's really nothing that anybody could have done.
Oh, um she left this for you.
God, just hope she's all right, you know, and that she comes back soon.
Mm.
And you know, if there's anything I can do to help Thank you.
I appreciate that, but, um I think I'm going to spend some time with my parents.
Well, um, you take care of yourself, okay? - Yeah.
- Yeah.
Oh, darlin'.
I'm not saying I don't believe you.
It's just Do you want me to take you through it again? No, no, no.
Fuckin' hell.
Look, this is probably a whole lot to process.
Maybe I should just go and and leave you here No.
No, no.
Stay.
Please.
You sure? Yeah.
I I gotta go get some air, but don't go anywhere.
And don't die.
Yeah, hey, mate, it's Owen.
Yeah, yeah.
I gotta talk to you.
You said to me on the phone, James, that I'm not Sarah anymore.
That I'm not your wife and I'm not Nia's mother.
I want you to understand that's not true.
Whatever I've become, I'm still the person you knew the person you married.
I love you and I love our daughter.
I am her mother.
I'm still Sarah.
I feel everything she does and I remember everything she did.
That time in the car park when you first told me you loved me.
And when we found out I was pregnant, and we both cried.
And I remember before that too at Kate's funeral, when you broke down and couldn't read from that book she loved The Bridge of San Luis Rey and I read it for you.
"And soon we shall die "and all memory of those five will have left the earth "and we ourselves shall be loved for a while and forgotten.
"But the love will have been enough "all those impulses of love return to the love that made them.
"Even memory is not necessary for love.
"There is a land of the living "and a land of the dead "and the bridge is love "the only survival "the only meaning.
"
