Glitch (2015) s03e02 Episode Script

Season 3, Episode 2

1 She broke the rules, James.
We're born, we live, we die.
In that order.
Don't go anywhere and don't die.
Yeah, hey, mate, it's Owen.
I've gotta talk to you.
- Still want to go to Adelaide? - Yeah.
- (SHOUTS) Goodbye, Yoorana! - (LAUGHS) Is there a priority? Start with this one.
He'll be the most difficult.
You OK? Yeah, I think you're right.
I need to go back to Yoorana.
Elishia.
(GRUNTS) (CAR DOOR CLOSES) Hello? It's William, isn't it? Mate, you can't stay here.
- Come back to my place - Elishia is gone.
I have no purpose here anymore.
OK.
Come on, come with me.
- Get in the car, hey? - (HISSES) - (GASPS) - Are you all right? She she's still here.
Mate, when's the last time you had something to eat, hey? Or or drink? - Come on, let's go - I saw her.
Elishia is here, somewhere.
All right, James asked me to look after you guys and that's what I'm gonna do.
- So come with me - I have to find her! Do not try and stop me.
William.
William! Shit.
(INSECTS BUZZ) - (CAR HORN HONKS) - (TYRES SQUEAL) Oh, my God! Is he alive? Are you OK? Oh, my God.
Is he dead? - Ohh! - Shit.
Shit.
I thought you'd killed him.
Can you stand? Ohh! - I'm all right.
- Oh, my God.
Shit.
It was you.
I saw you.
If you saw us, why the hell did you back into the road? Isha, stop it.
Stop it.
I'm just so sorry.
- I tried to swerve.
- You're lucky you're alive.
- What the hell were you thinking - Isha, shut up! You're not Elishia.
No.
My name's Millie.
Then why did I see you? I think he hit his head.
You were with me in the city.
And the lights.
Yeah, the the city.
That's where we're going.
- Oh, my God, he's bleeding.
- Can we get off the road, please? Do you have a car somewhere? There's a servo down the road.
I just maybe we should take you, get you cleaned up, OK? I saw something that hasn't happened yet.
- In the future.
- He needs some water.
I'm searching for concussion.
How's your vision? Have you got a headache? Do you want a mint? Are you nauseous, or dizzy? Come on, we'll take you to the servo.
Yeah.
You can get in our car.
- (GRUNTS) - Ooh Ah! Don't get blood on me.
Sorry, I'm returning this on Monday.
Can you walk? Do you think he's homeless? Dunno.
But he's definitely on the spectrum.
Do you recognise this? Ah, it's the Melbourne Star.
This is what I saw.
You paying for his sanger? Ah, yes, sure.
And the postcard, thank you.
What's your name? William Blackburn.
This is Isha and Sophie.
Is this where you work? Noregard? No.
I took that.
Do you want to change into this? It was my fiancé's.
He's chucking it.
It was going to the Salvos.
Shit, what happened to your back? Sophie! Are you a doctor? No, God no.
I'm a physicist.
You know, science.
You're a scientist.
Like Elishia.
Who is Elishia? A friend? Colleague? Isha and I, we work together.
Um, Sophie's an old mate.
We went to the same school.
Where are you from? - Yoorana.
- Do you have family there? You know, someone who could come and get you? No, they're all gone.
Where were you going? I want to go here.
OK.
We'll give you a lift.
There's something not right about him.
Yeah, I saw a movie where a guy tricked people into picking him up, and then he butchered them.
He's not a psycho.
He's just kind of sad.
He's sexy.
Those marks on his back? I mean, do you think he likes it rough? - 'Cause I'm up for whatever! - My God.
This was supposed to be a fun night out.
We're not running a taxi for crazy people.
I almost killed him.
The least I can do is give him a lift.
We're from Canberra.
Manuka.
We're spending the weekend in town because Millie got a new job and we're celebrating! Yoo! (LAUGHS) But it's in Chicago, which sucks.
- How's Adam taking it? - He's not.
You could always stay put.
I mean, if I was engaged to Adam, we'd never leave the house.
You should see his abs.
Are you OK, William? Yes.
Thank you for transporting me.
This is my favourite view of the city.
I never get sick of it.
This is where I need to be.
G'day.
I'm looking for some people.
Friends of mine.
Might have stopped by here.
Have you seen 'em? No, I just started my shift.
Sorry, mate.
Mate, I need a favour.
Can you run an ANPR check for me on this rego, see if it pings anywhere? P, Papa, V, Victor, L, Lima, three, zero, seven.
Copy that.
It's closed.
You can't get up there till morning.
No, it was somewhere else.
Up high, looking across.
You were there with me.
I don't know why.
You should know I have pepper spray in my bag and if you're like a lunatic or something I will use it.
And I have a fiancé, so this isn't going anywhere, if that's what you were thinking.
I understand.
I have no intentions.
You really are not like other guys.
Do you have any friends in town? Does Elishia live here? Elishia is dead.
God, I'm so sorry.
When did she A few days ago.
Oh, shit.
I'm sorry, I - (HORN HONKS) - Millie! - I kind of have to go.
- I need to stay with you.
OK.
Come have a drink.
Owen? Yeah, around the back.
I must have dozed off.
I think we drove over a nail or something.
Oh.
Well, do you want help changing it? You have got a spare tyre, right? Yeah, it's flat too.
Are you serious? I'd been meaning to swap it for ages.
(SIGHS) Um Well, I guess we better call roadside assistance.
Yeah, I think there's a number on the windscreen.
- Can you read it out? - Yep.
Ah, 1800 160 401.
There's no signal.
We're in a dead spot.
Well, I guess we wait for someone to drive past.
We passed a pub about five minutes ago.
We can call from there.
- Sounds good to me.
- Yeah? I could use a beer.
Yes, I could.
Yes, I could.
Beer sounds bloody great.
Sorry, I thought it was open.
Well, there's a ute here.
Someone's gotta be around.
You don't wanna just hitch to the next town? We're here.
We might as well ask.
Hi.
Hey.
Um, sorry to bother you but, um, we've got a flat tyre and our phone's got no signal, so we were wondering if we could borrow your landline? Uh, yeah, I I don't actually have one right now.
Uh, I've got some spare tyres out the back.
Why don't you come in and we'll have a look? OK.
Excuse the mess.
I'm renovating.
So, what are you driving? Land Cruiser ute.
All right, I'll just go and check.
Back in a second.
It's one of your mates.
Oh, yeah, it's dodgy work.
- Ears look like shit.
- Do they? (DOOR OPENS) Sorry, guys.
Got nothing for you.
Thanks for looking.
Um, you wouldn't be able to give us a lift somewhere, would you? Oh, yeah, I would, but I'm I'm actually waiting on a plumber and I don't wanna miss him.
Will it be long? Maybe we can wait.
Yeah, of course.
No worries.
- Your phone's on flight mode.
- What? - Look.
- Oh, shit.
I I didn't want to wake you before.
Two bars.
We can probably call roadside assistance.
All right, cool.
I'll give 'em a buzz.
Uh, reception's better outside.
All right, thanks.
Right, won't be a sec.
Uh-huh.
Ah, relax.
Can I get you a drink? Oh, we won't be long here, but thanks.
I've got some cold beers in the fridge.
- Oh, nah.
- OK.
So where are you guys from, anyway? - Uh, Yoorana.
- Ah.
- Mm-hm.
- And going to? Adelaide.
Ah.
City of churches.
Mm-hm.
(CHUCKLES) Are you guys an item? Yeah.
Mm-hm.
Why? I was just making conversation.
Oh, right.
You know what, I'm just gonna go, um, see if needs to No, no, just just sit down.
Relax.
(LAUGHS UNCOMFORTABLY) Um, you know what? We really Look, Adelaide's not going anywhere.
And it's shit anyway.
(CHUCKLES) Can you just move a sec, please? Where are you going? Are they coming? - Yeah, about an hour and a half.
- Oh.
Well, just sit down and I'll grab us some beers.
- We're going.
Thanks.
- Why? Let's go.
What what's the problem? I thought you wanted a beer.
Just let's get to the car.
Kate, get back inside.
How do you know my name? Owen.
- Grab her.
- No! No! Stop.
Stop! Get her inside! What are you doing? - Relax, it's OK.
- (SCREAMS) - It's OK.
- No! - No! No! - Calm down! - Don't hurt her! - No! What the fuck are you doing? Get some rope and we'll tie her up.
We're not gonna tie her up, OK? We agreed.
- Agreed to what? - Stop struggling.
Kate, let me explain, all right? I'll tell you everything, OK? Get her a drink.
- I don't want a fuckin' drink.
- OK.
Kate.
OK, all right.
OK, Kate Kate, I need your help.
Kate! Kate! - I told you to tie her up! - Shut up! Kate, Kate, I'm not gonna hurt ya.
Just let me You're gonna have to hurt me if you wanna keep me here.
Please, please, let me explain, OK? Please.
Amy's dying.
- Who the fuck is Amy? - She's my sister.
And she's got breast cancer, stage four, and the doctors have given up on her but I haven't.
And there there's this clinic in the States, they do these experimental blood transfusions but I can't get a visa and it's, like, 100 grand.
Kate, Kate, I lost both my parents to cancer.
I can't lose her too.
So I thought maybe maybe you can help her.
Maybe you can save her life.
How, Owen? You came back from the dead without cancer.
You you said your cells regenerated and maybe whatever did that is in your blood and it could regenerate her immune system.
Are you serious? I know it sounds crazy but I'm out of options.
Oh, Jesus, Owen.
No, please please, Kate, I'm begging you.
Why didn't you just ask me? Bringing me here and holding me like a bloody hostage.
Because I I thought you'd say no and and I'd never see you again.
She she doesn't have much time.
And if I still say no, are you gonna take my blood by force? If we have to.
- Who who is this? - This is Rob.
He's just a mate.
We met inside.
But I'm back on my feet now.
This is my pub.
Oh, that's great.
- Hey, please, please.
- (SIGHS) - Please help her.
- Jesus, Owen! If I do this - you'll let me go? - I swear.
I swear.
Soon as it's done.
I promise.
OK.
- Thank you.
- Bring her here.
Thank you so thank you so much.
Are you gonna call her? Yeah.
Ah.
(CHUCKLES) You already did call her.
OK.
That wasn't roadside assistance.
OK.
- Stupid.
- I'm sorry.
Yeah, no you're not.
You're not.
He said you're a nurse, so you know what you're doing.
Yeah.
- Well, get on with it, then.
- Don't talk to her like that.
How do you even know if we're the same blood type? It was on your medical records.
Let's get out of here.
I'll forgive Whoo! And forget If you say you'll never know But it's true I can't believe you've never been to karaoke.
She's very loud.
That's just Sophie.
Give her an anthem and there's no stopping her.
Waiting for your love to show But it's true What they say Better the devil you know Whoo! Captain William Blackburn.
I've come to minister the sacrament of penance, to free you from your sins and to reconcile you with God before you pass into his care.
(SOBS) (RAT SQUEAKS) (GRUNTS) Death will not absolve your sins, William.
You need to confess before God.
I have nothing to confess.
(GRUNTS IN PAIN) How is this possible? Did you do that? How? Who are you? What are you? I was captain of the Hegarty when it ran aground.
It splintered and shattered and we were swallowed up by the black water.
I drowned and then I came back from the dead.
That's impossible.
The only man who has returned from the dead was Our Lord Jesus Christ.
And yet here I am.
Back with purpose.
Are are you some kind of angel? Those are just stories for children.
I am no creature of God.
MILLIE: William? I know what I am.
I died and came back like Phil.
Like Vic and Sarah.
But if I came back like them, I must have a purpose like them.
William, are you all right? You don't look too good.
- (VOMITS) - (TOILET FLUSHES) (KNOCKS) Is everything all right? William? Look.
Oh, my God.
You two OK? I just saw it with my own eyes.
What? We saw water suspended in the air.
That's the martinis talking.
I saw it too.
What's going on here? Just Millie and her theories again.
What do you know of this? My new job's at Fermilab.
Experimental physics.
There's a lot of data coming in that we can't explain.
Things like this.
(WOMAN SPEAKS FOREIGN LANGUAGE) Seriously, those YouTube videos are faked.
And the rest of it's probably down to climate change.
- Yeah.
- No, it isn't.
The universe is expanding all the time, ever since the Big Bang, rippling outwards, accelerating.
Except it can't do that forever.
Eventually it will tear.
There are some of us that believe that that process has just begun.
All the evidence is anecdotal.
I just saw it with my own eyes.
It all started with that weird electromagnetic spike three weeks ago, and there was a second one this week.
You know, since then, there have been GPS going haywire, gravitational anomalies.
Basic physics, the rules of the universe, are being undone.
It's happening fast.
Can we go? I want cocktails fast.
Yep, come on.
Bye, Will.
You should call yourself that.
It's way hotter.
William makes you sound like a grandad.
See ya.
- I should go.
Will you be OK? - You cannot leave.
I need to know more.
I know what happened three weeks ago I really need to go.
It was really nice to meet you.
I'm sorry I nearly killed you.
Hey, come on.
You're not his babysitter.
Come on.
I need cocktails.
Oh, God, he's following us.
This is getting creepy now.
Millie, come on.
Millie, hurry.
- Should we call the police? - Don't be so dramatic! Millie, do you have the car keys? We've been drinking! It's just around the corner.
So walk.
William Blackburn.
Who are you? I'm here to take you back to your friends.
Charlie and Kirstie and Kate, mate.
They need your help.
Come on, get in.
Get out of my way.
Oh, my God! (MEN GRUNT) What are you doing? I need to stop this.
- Millie! - Leave him.
Stop it! Get off him.
(MEN CONTINUE GRUNTING) William, stop it! Oh, God! William, stop.
Enough! Enough! Stop.
We need to leave now.
What the fuck just happened? Who was that guy? I don't know.
What'd he say to you? Did he want money? - He wanted me to go with him.
- Why? He thinks I'm of value.
- We need to go to the police.
- No.
- (PHONE RINGS) - No police.
But he attacked you.
Hi.
No, I'm OK.
Isha, calm down.
I'm OK.
(PANTS) Shh.
Shhh.
WOMEN: (ON RECORDING) This is a simple, five-minute breath relaxation, ideal to use at any time throughout the busy day.
Close your eyes and allow my voice to be your guide.
The aspiration is to soothe the body and calm the mind.
Go get us some chewy? - What's that? - Chewing gum.
At the counter.
(COINS JANGLE) Hi.
Chewing gum.
I, uh, didn't know which one to get.
Doesn't matter.
Come on.
So, how are you? Was the drive OK? Oh, I've had better road trips.
I want you to meet someone.
- Kate, this is my sister, Amy.
- Hi.
Owen's told me all about you.
You look well.
Yeah, she is.
See, I told you I wasn't crazy.
And this is Gary.
He's a mate.
And you had breast cancer too? Yeah.
Yeah, she beat it.
You guys are a match, so a transfusion's worth a try, yeah? Thank you, for offering to do this.
So, do you want a drink of something? - Maybe water? - Beer? I think we should get on with this.
Kate used to be a nurse so she's in charge.
I'm glad someone knows what they're doing.
Look, I've been reading about how to do this - Yeah, I got this.
- Well, you might need some help.
I'll let you know if I want some help.
Can you both leave, thanks? And you.
Right.
Did you just have a fight? Yeah.
Owen has trouble getting close to people, letting his defences down.
I know he's not perfect, but his heart's in the right spot, I promise you.
Well, he loves you.
That's pretty obvious.
He's pretty keen on you too.
We watched both our parents suffer through this.
That's why I kept it a secret for a long time.
Can you just make a fist? You might have a bit of trouble with that.
It's a bit of a pin cushion.
Nuh, you're doin' fine.
Is it true what Owen said? You died and came back? Whatever he told you I don't have miracle blood.
What's happening for you and I are two completely different things.
I just I don't want you to get your hopes up.
I'm not doing this for me.
I have to let him try.
All right, just relax.
Hey It's OK.
I'm here.
When I was a kid there was this moment, I remember it so clearly.
I realised I was going to die one day.
I remember the wave of panic.
I I felt literally sick.
And it's something that everyone realises but no-one talks about because it's just so confronting.
Mmm.
I have fought so hard for this thing, this this life.
But I just don't think I can do it anymore.
I'm just so tired.
I'm just trying not to be scared.
Do you think that there's somewhere where we go when we die? That this is not just the end? I don't know.
You know, um there'll be no more treatment.
And no more pain.
Will you be there for him? When I'm gone? Sure.
(BREATHES RASPILY) You know when it happens, you'll be OK.
You'll let go and be free.
How is she? She's tired.
- Just let her rest.
- (CAMERA CLICKS) Cut it out.
Well, I did what you asked.
I'm gonna go now.
I have to wait until Amy's safe enough to travel.
All right, I'll go on my own.
Can I have the keys? What about the tyre? Oh, shit.
- Right, I'll hitch.
- (CAMERA CLICKS) - Can you stop fuckin' doing that? - Are you deaf? - Well - God! - We need proof.
- Of what? Her story.
No, I told you this is just between us.
- Look - Excuse me.
She's a freak.
We could make a fortune by selling her.
OK, don't listen to them.
That's not what's happening here.
Maybe it is.
- Hey, leave her alone.
- Gimme that back.
Look, we're not gonna hurt her, but what's the point in keeping this quiet? - She'd be worth a fortune.
- I said no.
You are not selling me.
Sorry, babe, but you are not leaving.
So why don't you sit yourself down and I'll grab you a beer.
- I said sit! - No! - Don't you fucking touch me.
- I said, back off.
Look, you got your blood.
What do you care? - We are going to sell her.
- What? You can't sell a person.
What, you've never heard of the dark net? You can buy or sell anything you want, mate.
Drugs, weapons, ammo, freaks.
Someone out there will wanna study her.
No fuckin' way.
Well, I'm sorry, babe, you don't get a say in this.
No-one is gonna buy me, guys.
This is fuckin' insane.
Are you listening to yourselves? What if I had a better idea? - Have you got a laptop? - Why? 'Cause I know a company that'll be interested.
You can approach them direct.
There'd be no data trail.
I'll show you the website.
Noregard.
They have a facility in Yoorana.
(UNZIPS BAG) Kate.
And how do you spell that? No Regard? - Go.
- Argh! (SCREAMS) - Get to the truck! - (KEYS JANGLE) Stop! (GUNSHOT) Come on.
- Stop! - Arghh! Get out now! (STARTS ENGINE) Fuck! Hello, police and ambulance? Adam will freak if he hears I brought you back here.
And Sophie's got a big mouth.
I don't understand.
He's possessive.
He doesn't want me moving to Chicago.
He'd prefer I stay in Canberra and have babies.
He wants me to choose.
Well, at least you have a choice.
What we saw tonight is proof.
Something is happening and it needs to be studied and understood.
It's bigger than me, bigger than just my relationship.
So why is this happening? That's what I'm trying to find out.
Have you ever heard of dark matter? No.
It's this invisible force that bonds all matter.
It's kind of in everything, in between everything, binding the universe together.
Well, there's a theory that a form of energy called quintessence is driving the expansion of the universe, and we think that works against dark matter.
The basic laws we've identified, like gravity, and relativity, will unravel.
All matter will be torn apart.
People, planets, subatomic particles, even space-time itself.
The Great Rip.
And the world will cease to exist? Not just our world, everything.
The entire universe will be torn apart.
(ELECTRICITY CRACKLES) This is what I saw.
The future.
Oh, my God.
This is insane.
It's begun.
William.
Here it is.
Your final request.
God's canopy.
William, there may still be a way to stop your execution.
I can intervene on your behalf Why would you do that? - You said you were innocent.
- I must not be saved.
No-one is truly lost We are born, we live and we die in that order.
I broke the rules.
- You can be forgiven - No! Because of me, this world will be torn apart.
You are not an angel.
You are the harbinger.
You call me what you will.
But tomorrow I will hang, and this world will be saved.
Take this man inside.
Come on.
It's happening again.
Because Elishia brought us back.
I have to put things right.
I have to stop what's coming.
Stop what? The end of everything.
- Hi.
- Are you OK there? Uh, do you have a phone that I could borrow, please? (PHONE RINGS) Hello? James? James, it's me.
It's Kate.
- Where are you? - I don't know.
I'm out in the middle of fucking nowhere.
I don't know.
I Owen's been shot and I think Owen's dead and his friends I think his friends are after me.
I don't know what the fuck it is.
Kate, it's OK.
It's OK.
Calm down.
Listen to my voice.
- OK.
- Do you have a car? No.
OK.
That's OK.
I need you to hitch a ride into Yoorana.
Go to the lake house, and I'm gonna meet you there.
OK.
Kate, it's gonna be OK.
I'm going to take care of everything.
OK.
Thank you.
Thanks.
Are you going near Yoorana? Yeah.
You want a ride? What are you doing on the highway? I have to get back to Yoorana.
All right, I'll give you a lift.
Why have you returned? Just some unfinished business.
Hop in.
Where's your child? She's in Tasmania with my parents.
So you left her? No, not for long.
Just some things I need to do.
You've injured yourself.
Yeah, that's nothing.
Get in the car.
That was a test.
I know what you are.
I am the same.
Vic, Phil and Sarah.
They were right all along.
Everyone who came back has to die.
Come on.
I cannot believe I'm actually here.
We've had a second chance at life.
Why can't it just be fuckin' over? You're being selfish.
Someone is helping them.
You tell me who that is.
Look, I think it's started again.
What? (GRUNTS)
