Haven s05e16 Episode Script

The Trial of Nathan Wuornos

- Previously on Haven - Still haven't figured out how to bring down that fog wall yet.
- Maybe that's a blessing.
Keep this chaos contained to Haven.
It's not what hides in the dark we need to worry about.
- It's the dark itself.
- You'll die if you - Go into the dark.
- Hailie! - When I was 12, I heard you and my dad talking about using my mom's special powers to get stuff.
- The car went through me.
- I did it to save your life.
Let's just hope it doesn't end it.
- What am I looking at? - Rolf Starr.
My missing person you're supposed to be tracking down? - What the hell's going on with your eyes, man? - Three other deaths in the last two weeks.
The no marks killer.
- I've been getting a blip.
- You need help? - There's aether down there.
- Now what? - We follow.
- Where's Kira? - We got stuck in the dark.
Kira's dead.
- You bastard! This is your fault.
You killed her! - Calm down! Everybody, just calm down.
Let's not get riled up.
It sets off Troubles.
- I can't believe she's gone.
- What's going on? - Nathan got Kira killed.
- What happened? - I need to talk to you in private.
- Is she alive or isn't she? - She's dead.
I'm sorry.
- Are you okay? - I'm fine.
- Nathan left the power plant with Kira.
Won't say where they went.
- Who here lost someone last night because the power was out? - I have.
- And if the plant fails again, how many more are gonna die? It was Nathan's mission to protect Kira, to protect all of us.
Kira's electricity Trouble was our only hope against the darkness.
She was my fiancée, and Nathan got her killed.
He's gonna get us all killed.
- Yeah! - We can't let him stay here.
- Yeah, get him out.
- You want me to banish Nathan? - No.
- You're supposed to keep us safe from people like him.
- The safety of the group is the most important thing, but I will - You need to hear Nathan out.
- I will hear Nathan out.
- Listen, Dwight, we've survived this far because you've been strong and you've been fair.
You can't let Nathan off just because he's your friend.
- Wait, so you're saying Kira's not dead? - She's alive.
Underground, but her leg's pinned.
I couldn't free her.
She's using her Trouble to power a light to keep the darkness off.
- We just came this close to a riot.
Why do you want people thinking Kira's dead? - 'Cause we found William's aether.
- What? - Haven's on the edge of chaos, and you want to throw in the supernatural equivalent of plutonium? - If people knew that Kira was alive, they'd go after her.
We'd never be able to keep the aether a secret.
- They would scramble for it hoping that it would be a cure.
- Which it won't.
Kirk thought it would help him, and it got him killed.
No, under all circumstances the aether must remain a secret.
Mara couldn't find the aether.
How did you? - A machine Seth left behind led me to it.
Now Charlotte can make a cure.
- Nathan - Charlotte said if she has aether, she can make a cure.
Freeing Kira is a two-person job.
That's why I came back.
But we have to go now.
She's been awake for 24 hours.
She falls asleep, she dies.
- I let you walk out of here, I will have a riot on my hands.
- Then banish me.
- No, I'm going with you.
- No, people need you here.
- People need you.
Besides, how is Charlotte gonna help you with the aether if you're locked outside? We got to figure out another way to fix this.
- You better hurry up.
They're already growing restless in the gym.
Tony's riling them up to take justice into their own hands if need be.
- Fine, leave me here.
You go.
Take Charlotte.
- Dwight, you're the only reason that that crowd calmed down.
If you're not here, they come for Nathan.
- She's right.
- Those people are just scared, and they are taking their fear out on me.
The sooner you go, the sooner you bring Kira back, this all goes away.
- I can't risk this place coming apart.
- No, you can't.
We need to give the people what they want.
- What they want is my head.
- No, what they want is justice.
We need to put Nathan on trial.
- You want to put me on trial? - They're so angry he'll be found guilty.
- It will never get that far.
All that matters is time.
- Nothing's slower than a legal proceeding.
That's brilliant.
It'll give you plenty of time to rescue Kira.
- I like it for another reason too.
- So you want us to decide what happens to Nathan? Why? - You think we've survived because I'm strong? No, we've survived this long because you all are.
Your stability doesn't depend on me.
It can't.
I could die tonight.
The old courts and lawyers, they don't seem appropriate.
- Agreed.
We're still in crisis mode.
- Maybe we come up with a simple, reliable - Justice system.
- Yeah, a good one, not based on fear.
Listen, if we do this, can you all be deliberative, calm, fair? - Yes.
- Work with Vince and Dave on what kind of trial.
I want your input.
- Thank you, Dwight.
- I'm unclear.
Is this trial a stalling tactic, or is it the rebirth of democracy? - Can't it be both? Keep the process legit while I'm gone.
- Just stop the car.
Stop the car! I want to do it again.
- No, you don't.
- Hey, you ran me over.
My power's activated because of you.
- Only 'cause I was trying to save your life.
Don't make me regret it! What you are trying to do, you have no idea how dangerous it is.
Stop, You are gonna kill yourself.
- I'm gonna get killed anyway.
I might as well do it on my own terms.
And I'm not gonna stop.
If I did it once, I can do it again.
- Wait! When I almost hit you with the car, what were you thinking about? Was there anything else in your world or just the car? - Just the car.
- Exactly.
You need to focus.
Your mom said she wasn't passing through the wall, she was becoming the wall.
- I get it.
- Great.
- I did it! - Yeah, terrific.
- Good morning, Haven.
This is Dave Teagues here, coming at you from the principal's office.
- We are not disc jockeys, Dave.
Have you no gravitas? - Okay, fine, you do it, Gravy Ass.
- In consultation with Tony, we have decided that the best trial for our situation is the kind they used to hold long ago in Athens.
Everyone gets to vote on the accused's guilt or innocence.
- Even if they banish me, I'll survive.
Been doing it for days.
- You've been doing it for years.
- Athenian tribunals are simple.
Speaking for the dead is Kira's fiancé, Tony.
Nathan will speak for himself.
He is charged with endangering group safety.
- If convicted, Nathan will be banished.
We now take a short recess.
Then Tony will begin-- - Hold on.
Point of order.
When we talked about setting up this tribunal, the Teagues said that we'd adhere to the rules.
- Oh, absolutely.
There can be no bias or favoritism whatsoever.
- Well, I taught history in this school for ten years, and under Athenian law, the prosecutor sets the punishment.
When you said "banishment" without asking me, you weren't trying to rig things in Nathan's favor, were you? - Oh, certainly not.
I just assumed What sentence do you seek? - Banishment isn't enough for Nathan.
He can survive out there and continue to endanger us.
There is only one safe course.
Nathan Wuornos must die.
- We will take a short recess before proceeding.
- Isn't that a bit extreme? - It's up to the people to decide.
- I understand you're grieving, but - Come on, this isn't about vengeance.
This is about our survival.
I only sought the death penalty after reviewing Nathan's entire record, and you have a long history of harming this town.
- What are you talking about? - Most recently, Duke Crocker was trying to leave Haven so his Trouble bomb wouldn't hurt anyone until Nathan stopped him.
Nathan is the reason that everyone is Troubled now.
This is just one example I'll cite.
- Where'd you get that information? - I don't have to tell you that.
But thank you for confirming it's true.
- Tony must have an informant.
- Who? - Someone who wants me dead.
- Athenian rules require that we let Tony make his case without delay.
- Screw the rules.
Just stop the tribunal.
- We cannot screw the rules.
- Somebody has it out for Nathan.
- I agree, but there's nothing we can do about that right now.
Didn't you hear how they reacted when Tony accused me of favoritism? - Vince is right.
It seems pretty clear that Tony can incite that crowd in a second.
- What if we could find a legal way to stop it, to slow it down? - As in to find a loophole in the rules? - Yeah.
You love loopholes.
Maybe there's something in the library.
Well, let's go.
- This isn't how it's supposed to go.
- Trial's still a good idea.
Gives Dwight time to find Kira, but Kira needs to be alive when he gets there.
So I need you to solve this darkness Trouble.
- No, I am not leaving you.
- We still have time here, Parker.
Let the trial run its course.
But if the darkness kills Kira, then - Saving Kira saves you.
- Exactly.
- Whatever gets you out of this.
- Nathan kept us alive yesterday.
The engineer's death wasn't his fault.
- Nathan's as good as any Ranger when he keeps his eyes down.
- It's harmless.
Just a poltergeist Trouble that slams things shut.
- Problem is, when Nathan looks up at some pie in the sky, he trips.
Brings people down with him.
You made him look up.
Sent him for aether while people were dying.
- No, I didn't, Dwight.
I asked Nathan not to leave the power plant.
The only reason I told him about the aether was because I thought I was gonna die.
I figured maybe someday he and Audrey could try.
- You really do think there's a way to cure the Troubles after all.
- Oh, yeah.
Oh, yeah.
Ready? - You have to focus.
You rematerialize too soon, you're gonna end up as part of the gate.
I'm gonna be picking you out of it.
- Is that how my mom died? - Yeah.
That's why they're called Troubles, not powers.
- And what about you? Do you have any Troubles? - No.
I'm just a normal guy.
- Aw, damn, I did rematerialize too soon.
- See? You're bleeding.
- Oh.
My heel must have got stuck in the metal.
What? Are you squeamish around blood? - No.
Put this on.
Hold that there.
- Okay.
- Oh, my God.
My husband is dead? - I'm sorry.
- How? - The darkness killed him.
- Then I vote for Nathan to die.
He abandoned that power plant, and now my husband is dead! - Listen, your husband said that he saw a man emerge from the darkness unharmed.
That man is the person with the darkness Trouble.
Please, did Rolf say anything? - Just go away! - Listen, Peggy, I-I couldn't save your husband, all right? But please let me try to save you and your kids.
- Rolf was with another man at the time.
He might have seen the Troubled person too.
Name's Furber? Tall guy, nose ring.
- Is it Faber, maybe? Is it Faber Haskins? - Yes, that's it.
Do you know him? - I've arrested him twice.
Aggravated assault, bad guy.
- One ancient Greek compared the tribunal to a cattle stampede.
It cannot be stopped.
- But who knows what Tony will divulge next? We have to stop him.
- But we can't.
- Oh, watch me take out his kneecaps.
- Guys! The noose is around my neck, not yours.
Just let the trial proceed.
- But who knows what he'll say? And how does he know all this? - He has my entire record.
I'd like to hear that.
If Tony's gonna make this personal - What? If I'm gonna make this personal, what? I stand behind what I've done.
- And I'm gonna take you down for what you did to Kira, for what you did to Haven.
You're gonna burn.
- Here's what I don't get.
The last thing you built to end the Troubles The Barn was gonna kill all the Troubled people - It was the only way I knew how to eradicate Troubles.
I had to protect against a far greater evil, should it ever rear its head.
- What greater evil? - We don't know much about it.
We don't want to.
It lives in the Void and feeds off aether and Troubles.
If it would ever escape, you can't imagine the destruction.
- I've seen some pretty awful things.
- No one in your world has seen anything quite like this.
I lost my husband to it.
- I'm sorry.
- It was a long time ago.
- The Troubles are running rampant in Haven right now.
So are we in any danger from this greater evil? - I don't know.
- Duke didn't want to trouble everyone.
Nathan did.
And that's just the latest chapter.
Nathan once had, in his clutches, the woman who created the Troubles.
Did he turn her into The Guard as Dwight wanted? No, he ran off to a romantic cabin in the woods.
And that is where I believe she recruited him to help spread the Troubles.
- That's not true.
- Do you know why there was so much damage, why the Troubles didn't end for 27 years? - I will pull the fire alarm.
If that doesn't work, I will set fire to this school.
- Parker - He is lying to everyone.
- His facts are true.
His interpretation's a bit off.
- Every bad thing that has ever befallen Haven, Nathan has had some key role in.
How does this connect to Kira? Because Kira knew these dark secrets about him, and Nathan got her killed to silence her.
- She's not dead! - Shh! Not yet she isn't.
Let's keep it that way.
How's the case coming? - Faber Haskins may be an eyewitness, but I can't find him.
- I heard him.
His crew might be in the basement.
You be careful.
- I know who I'm dealing with.
We were planning on getting married in Venice.
Now we'll never get to do it all because Nathan had it out for her the same way he's got it out for everyone in Haven.
- Help! - Help! No! - Get him in there.
- Get him in there! - Help! - Hey! Freeze! No, don't move.
- Detective Parker, glad you could join us.
- Faber, open the door.
You've been busy down here, Faber.
- Protecting the public, since you're so useless at it.
- Did you see someone survive the darkness? - Lights went out in the boiler room.
Three people got flayed, except for one bearded dude with a yellow bandanna.
He came strolling out like he's sneaking out of Sunday school.
- So now you're just randomly throwing in bearded men? - Until somebody survives and the Troubled one is ID'd.
- That's first-degree murder.
- Yeah, well, that crap doesn't matter anymore, does it? - You need to let Grayson go.
He has a different Trouble.
I helped him last week.
- Is that true? - He can't hear you.
He is hearing impaired.
- Turn tail, sweet cheeks.
Let me see 'em swish as you leave.
- I don't think so.
- Well, you know there's five of us, right? There's one of you.
You might get a shot off, maybe two before we have our way with you.
- Come on, get up.
Come on.
Get them out.
Get them out of here.
- How'd you know? - Nathan, he said you might need some backup.
- Where are you gonna take 'em? - Dwight gave me one mandate Don't let a riot break out.
And given what's brewing upstairs over your boyfriend, I don't have enough manpower for crowd control and keeping these guys under guard.
- So you're taking them to the Sandman to put them in that sleep.
- It's the only choice I got.
- Well, they deserve much worse.
- Is he gonna be all right? - Yeah.
- This is not a restaurant.
- Surprise! - No, I am not going to help you rob a bank.
- I just wanted to practice on thicker walls.
- And take $31,000 while you're at it.
- Well, while I'm here.
- Damn it, Hailie.
- Like you and Dad never stole back in the day, huh? - Not the point.
Look, I'm not even against stealing.
I am against you using your Trouble to do it.
- Those men will kill me if I don't get that money.
- And if I don't? - I'll do it without you.
- One condition.
You never use your Trouble again after this.
- I promise.
- All right, make it fast.
- Okay.
- Great.
- I have something better than a fire alarm.
I'm going to use Grayson.
- Parker.
- I'm going to have him set off his Trouble, and everyone in the school will scatter.
Can you meet me outside of the police station? - Audrey, no.
- N are you crazy? Tony has made you sound like a monster.
There is no way that that jury is going to acquit you now.
- The sound that Grayson makes is so painful, it activated five other Troubles last time.
We can risk a chain reaction.
- I don't care, all right? I will do anything to save you.
- Oh, you're stealing my line.
When you went into the Barn, I was willing to risk anything to keep you with me while you faced your fate head-on.
- It is not your fate to be executed for something that you didn't do.
- But that's just it.
Some of what Tony said, I did do.
So I feel like I'm on trial for being me, or at least the me that I've become since I fell in love with you.
I want to defend that.
- Nathan, that's really noble, but you're not You're not exactly a public speaker.
- Parker, do not use Grayson.
People will get hurt.
- Okay, what is your defense? You're going to counter-punch with something, right? - No, I won't attack him.
Though I could.
Tony said he and Kira were getting married in Venice.
Last night, Kira told me that Venice would've been a huge mistake.
I didn't know what she meant, but - She changed her mind about marrying Tony? But under the rules, he has no right to speak for the dead and prosecute you.
That's that's great.
Use that.
- Let me worry about my defense.
Right now, you need to solve the darkness Trouble.
If Kira dies All bets are off for me.
- Nathan said it's not much farther.
We just have to get down there.
- So about this new cure - I thought you weren't interested in a cure.
- Of course I am.
I just want to live the life I have and not wait for the one that may never happen.
So you never said what was different.
Last I heard, you had to kill people to end the Troubles.
So what changed? - It's the poltergeist Trouble.
We're trapped.
That was fast.
- Don't thank me yet.
I had to drop the rope to get the glow stick out in time.
- With all our supplies? - And our light sources.
This glow stick is all we have.
Thanks, folks.
It's not a happy day.
The trial isn't over yet.
- But no beard.
- Rather than be a disembodied voice over the PA, Nathan has asked to make his appeal to you in person.
Those of you who are not in the gymnasium can join us in here, or you can listen from wherever you are.
Nathan will begin momentarily.
- Tony, when did you shave? - Two days ago, WW? - Three days ago, a bearded man with a yellow bandanna walked out of a dark boiler room.
Was that you? - I got lucky.
- I don't think luck had anything to do with it.
- What? You think this is my Trouble? No way.
No, you're trying to undermine me to save Nathan.
- No one else survived.
No one.
- Doesn't mean anything.
- Yes, it does.
We know that Kira broke off your engagement.
- No, she didn't.
- Is the breakup what activated your Trouble? The same day that the darkness started? - That's a coincidence, and it was a spat.
It wasn't a breakup.
- Tony, the darkness is growing.
You need to stop it, or we will all die.
Tony, this is getting worse.
You need to accept that this is you.
- Can't be me.
Kira didn't leave me.
- Yes, she did.
- The research I did when you thought I was a CDC doctor, that's what's different from the last time.
Now I think there might be a way to cure Troubles without killing people.
I never would've seen it if Nathan hadn't kept pushing me.
- Yeah, he can be stubborn.
- I just wanted you to know that it's not impossible.
- Your timing is stunning.
- Hi, everybody.
I've been Troubled since I was a kid.
My dad, Garland Wuornos Most of you knew him He was Troubled too.
Helping Troubled people has been the family business for a long time.
Let me tell you, I wouldn't wish a Trouble on my worst enemy.
- Maybe that's what your Trouble's about.
You refuse to look at the dark, emotional truth.
You're scared that it might kill you.
And then that fear, it manifests itself literally.
And now that I'm trying to make you face it, you're making the room darker, and we're all going to die.
You need to accept that she broke up with you.
You need to accept that you're doing these things.
- I'm not.
- Tony's right.
I have been front and center for the awful events in Haven's recent history.
Why? Because it's my job.
To help.
It's what I do.
- This is getting nowhere.
Everyone, get closer.
Get in the light.
Get your light sources out.
Use your flashlights, your cell phone, get a lighter.
- I've dedicated my life to helping ease the Troubles.
Some of you know that there have even been a few times when things have gone my way.
Tony didn't mention any of those.
Guess that's 'cause it's just the way the Troubles are.
- We are going to use these to get out.
I'm gonna take the kids first.
Come here.
Yeah, you, stick together.
Here we go.
Keep going, good, out this way.
- I'm not trying to duck anything.
I guess for me it's more important to keep going.
And the only way to do that is, first, you don't deny how bad it is.
Face it, no matter how scared you are.
You have to light up the dark with hope.
- Okay, they're good.
They're safe.
There's enough light out there to keep them safe.
Keep staying close.
Stay in the light, close.
- Doesn't matter how dim the hope seems.
Hope and love, which is what hope is really about, can come out in the darkest places.
The Troubles have made Haven dark, but we can light it up again, keep trying to make things better even when it seems impossible.
- Please.
- We have to light up the dark with hope.
It's the only way to make life worth living.
Thank you.
- It's funny.
I think Nathan's optimism is kind of rubbing off on me.
I thought we were gonna make it.
- Me too.
- Good-bye, Dwight.
- Good-bye, Charlotte.
Charlotte, you still alive? - Not sure how, but yeah.
- Kira did leave me, said I couldn't deal with negative feelings.
My Trouble has killed so many people.
I I'm ready.
I have to face my darkness just like Nathan said.
- Kira? We're coming.
We're coming.
- Oh, thank God.
- You're a brave young woman.
You're gonna be okay.
We're gonna get you out of here.
- Nathan was right.
It's a two-person job.
I'll set up a lever.
- As I suspected, there's not nearly enough.
- Of the swirly black stuff? Look over there.
- I don't believe it.
Nathan was right.
I can end the Troubles.
- Guess how much.
- If it's a penny more than 31 K, put it back.
- You can keep the change.
- No, thank you.
Come on, we've been here too long.
Let's go.
- Freeze! Put your hands on your head.
Put your hands on your head.
- You do have a Trouble.
- It's not a Trouble.
- Duke, your eyes.
What are you doing? - Run.
- Who gave you this information about Nathan? - Honestly, I-l don't know.
I was alone in my room.
I fell asleep or something, and when I came to, it was all there.
- Is this your handwriting? - No.
- You didn't see or hear anything? - Like I said, I spaced out or It's like time didn't exist for me.
What could make a person lose time like that? - There's still no sign of Dwight.
Which means that your life hangs on your eloquence.
Your speech, it helped me get through to Tony, though.
It was really It was really good.
- You think they heard it with your ears? - If they didn't, I'm going to use Grayson.
- Hey.
- No, I don't care what you say.
And have you seen him? - Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention, please? The votes have been tallied, decision made.
And the verdict is - Hey look, it's Kira! - That's a hell of a lot of aether you found.
- Duke, please.
Please don't hurt me.
- I don't want to hurt you.
I'm sorry.
- Not exactly lobster at The Gull.
- I'll take it.
- So now what? How do we build the structure to end the Troubles? - Step one, concentrate that aether into a workable form.
And there's so much.
I'm gonna need a hand.
I like your hand.
But for that much aether, I'm gonna need another being from my world.
- You need Audrey.
- We all do.
More than ever.
- Have you seen Grayson? Grayson? Grayson! The Sandman.
- I hate that name.
