Light as a Feather (2018) s02e13 Episode Script

...Thick As Thieves

1 MCKENNA: Previously, on Light as a Feather What did I do to deserve you? I don't know.
Maybe just lucky.
When I was at Day Bridge, there was this guy in group therapy.
He said that he spent a lot of time at a cabin that his family bought for him to help him recover.
This is Justin.
- Peri's brother.
- Peri? Oh my God, Alex.
VIOLET: Oh my God.
She's been watching us.
How creepy is that? They're too close, Alex.
- They know too much.
- Peri, what do you mean? Let's just say I just really need you to trust me on this, okay? Guys, we need to focus.
Anything that can lead us to Alex and Peri.
No one's coming for you, okay? It's just me and you.
Your friends need to die.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC.]
Alex! Oh my God, no.
[INTENSE MUSIC.]
[PANTING.]
[GASPING.]
PERI: Alex! Please! Shit! [BREATHING HEAVILY.]
Hey! Hey! You can't just walk into someone's place like you own it.
Hey, we're really sorry.
Get the hell out or I'm gonna call 9-1-1.
Now! Look, we're really, really sorry.
This is so embarrassing but we were just trying to prank a friend and we got the wrong cabin.
Right, babe? Yeah.
Yeah, right, babe.
VIOLET: Mm-hmm.
McKenna, you okay? - Hey.
- Yeah.
VIOLET: So if you don't mind, we're just gonna [RETCHING.]
[COUGHING.]
[SINISTER MUSIC.]
[GASPING.]
Okay.
Okay.
Got ID? Can I borrow your phone? Please, it's an emergency.
Yeah.
Of course.
[DIALING.]
[LINE TRILLING.]
McKenna, I'm using somebody's phone.
Call me back! Take it easy, sweetie.
Somebody's after me.
Don't worry.
You're safe here.
I just need my friends.
I, uh, had a fight with my girlfriend.
Well, you can rest here until your friends call.
Don't worry.
Anybody comes for you, they'll have to go through me.
TREY: I got nothing.
HENRY: Me either.
Trey, we gotta find Alex.
Peri had me for weeks.
MCKENNA: [WHIMPERS.]
Wait, wait, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Violet I need you to do something for me.
I don't know how we've made it this long, but maybe we're lucky We're all on a clock.
Right.
But my body's the clock, and if this alarm goes off, it's gonna be bad, and if this chrysalis hatches or whatever, I need you to do something for me.
[SOMBER MUSIC.]
I want you to kill me.
What? You know my death prediction.
Now I just need my body to get in the ground so it can die.
You're giving up? Not yet, but if it comes down to the wire, and it buys you guys more time, I need you to do it.
Trey and Alex and Henry, they won't, but but you I'm the killer? No.
That's not it.
[GASPING.]
I'm not asking you to do this because I think you're a killer.
I'm asking you to do this because out of everyone, you're a survivor.
I trust you.
[ETHEREAL MUSIC.]
HENRY: I got a signal! - I got a signal! - [PHONE BEEPING.]
[PHONE BUZZES.]
McKenna? Where are you? Are you okay? Yeah.
No, I'm Trey, I think I'm at a place called Maggie's Roadhouse.
Please hurry, okay? Okay, I got it.
Hang in there! [SNIFFLES.]
Bathroom? Thanks.
[SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
[INTENSE MUSIC.]
[WHIMPERING.]
Okay, we need to get her home.
VIOLET: Seriously? No, her mom's gonna quarantine her and then we're all completely screwed.
If that's what it takes to save her life, - I don't care.
- No.
It's fine.
We just need to get to Alex, okay? It's fine.
It's passing.
[STRAINED.]
It's passing.
She's just saying that for our benefit.
How much time does she really have? I don't know.
In Violet's journal, nobody lasts longer than a month.
Then we don't have a lot of time.
MAGGIE: Peri, what happened? I don't know.
She just ran away from me.
And honestly, I'm kinda nervous about what'll happen to her if I don't find her.
MAGGIE: Hm.
Hey! Come over here, kid.
Come on.
She's not who she says she is.
Maggie, you remember how Justin used to be the last couple times we were here? Oh, dear, yes.
Yes I do.
Poor thing.
Yeah, well, Alex here is kinda going through the same thing.
You don't have to run, honey.
Peri's a saint.
She can help you.
Maggie caught Justin trying to steal bottles from behind the bar a couple times.
Luckily she called me instead of the cops every time.
Felt bad for that sweet kid.
Let's go, Alex.
Come on.
It's okay.
Please, you have to believe me! You're in good hands with her.
Thank you, Maggie.
Thank you.
- Go on.
- Let's go.
[GASPING.]
Why did you have to run away and make everything harder? - I'm the one making it harder? - Yes! I'm not the one killing people! I'm not the one kidnapping You're not even trying to understand things! Oh, I understand just fine.
Would you please just listen.
Alex, listen.
All of this is because of Violet Simmons.
Violet.
[SCREAMING.]
Alex! Hey! Come on! Get in! [WHIMPERING.]
[TIRES SQUEAL.]
[KNOCKING FRANTICALLY.]
Oh, I swear to God, if that is him Tell him to piss off.
Wait, let me get it.
[CLEARS THROAT.]
Al? Wait, what is with the field trip? Okay, go inside.
Henry? You're okay? Alex, what the hell is going on? Mac's sick and we can't go to the hospital.
We need your help.
Okay, relax.
I'll see what I can do.
Hi, I'm Violet.
Yeah, that Violet.
Just come on.
She really shouldn't have eaten the truck stop sushi.
[MUFFLED LAUGHING.]
That was good.
ALEX: Okay.
So you're friends with Violet now? Can we talk about that later? Okay, fine.
But we're gonna.
Okay, Mac, what's the problem? [GASPS.]
Oh my God.
[GASPS.]
Oh my God.
Can you help her or not? Uh, um, okay.
Okay, fine, but I am not touching that thing.
Good.
You shouldn't.
APRIL: I'm not sure what I can do.
Hang in there, Mac.
[SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
Jeez.
I don't even know if this is gonna work.
- [WHIMPERS.]
- [HISSING.]
APRIL: [SCREAMS.]
Oh my God! [GASPING.]
I've never seen anything like that.
I mean, not in my books, not online, or anywhere.
She needs to see an actual doctor or a hospital.
Okay, we'll get her to a doctor, but right here and now, let's assume it's a virus.
What should we do? How do we stop it? Okay, um.
Well, if it were viral, we treat the symptoms until it passes or um, you know, until it kills you.
I can't lose any more friends, April.
Okay, um well, it, uh, turns out that Brad is not only an asshole, but he's a thief.
He stole some lidocaine from the clinic he was interning at, and I I could give her a shot for the pain.
Thank you.
Seriously, thank you.
Yeah.
[GASPING.]
- [KNOCKING.]
- MAGGIE: Peri? Honey? It's Maggie.
Uh, be out in a sec.
You might want to hurry, kid.
There's some folks out here who'd like to have a word with you.
- It's a lot of blood.
- Yeah.
PERI: Are you guys allowed to just go through my car like that? ROGER: Peri Boudreaux? Yeah, that's me.
We got a call from Maggie.
Said you might be involved in some kind of incident? Oh, it was just an argument with a friend.
There's blood all over the seat.
Okay.
No, no, I get it.
I get it.
What happened there? I cut my hand making breakfast.
Just opened it up by accident.
It happened while I was driving, actually.
Hey, you know, my tags are good, you don't have to If you just want to leave it [TENSE MUSIC.]
Body! We got a body! Put your hands where I can see them.
Get down.
Now.
Oh, okay.
I'm sorry.
[CHINCHILLA'S ELEMENTS .]
SINGER: She confident Now don't forget it She'll start a storm Political medic That ass a blessing but I wouldn't dwell How's she doing? I don't know.
Not good.
Did you tell Peri where April was? - No.
- Okay, good.
Then we're safe for now.
God, how could I have been so stupid? How did I not see through her shit? [SIGHS.]
Violet? I have to tell you something awful.
I didn't want to say anything while you were driving, but Peri killed your parents.
No, that doesn't that doesn't make any sense.
She messed with your furnace.
She was after you, but she didn't know that you could only die one way.
I can't imagine how you must feel.
But if if you're about to go "Awful Violet" and burn the world down, please, just just don't, okay? We need you.
[SIGHS.]
[SOFT MUSIC.]
[SNIFFLES.]
[SOFT SOBS.]
[BOTH LAUGHING.]
[ROSCOE WILLIAMSON, TOM GRIFFITHS & ADAM ZAPEL'S HEARTBURN.]
DARCY: Come dance with me! No, I'm good.
April never said you were so cute.
April mentioned me? Actually no, but she should've.
Do you guys wanna play charades? VIOLET & ALEX: No games.
[LIZI KAY'S DO YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE .]
Oh, shit! This is my song! Come here! [INDISTINCT RAPPING.]
JESS: All right, yeah.
Here we go.
Here we go.
- And back it in.
- DARCY: Oh, it's cute.
JESS: Uh huh.
There you go.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
It's like they forgot what she did.
I didn't forget, Henry.
Hey.
- Seems like you're rallying.
- Yeah.
April gave me a shot.
I feel better, but it's not gonna last.
You guys both knew Jennie.
Did you think she'd ever hurt anyone? Nope.
Forgiving Violet isn't absolving her.
I just can't keep carrying the burden of condemning her.
[SOMBER MUSIC.]
Hey, I think about Livvy every day, but this chrysalis is more than just a curse.
I can feel it eating away at me and not just my body, but who I am, and the choices I make.
It makes bad things feel right.
[PHONE RINGING.]
It's my mom.
Hey.
She's falling apart.
I just don't know what to say.
You don't have to say anything.
Just be there for her.
- TREY: Everything okay? - Uh, yeah.
Just, um I told her April invited us up.
I don't know if she believed me, or if she's just tired of keeping up with all my lies.
[CHUCKLES FAINTLY.]
Did you hear from Sammi? Do you regret not leaving with her yet? Because I can't imagine how terrifying and disgusting I must seem right now.
We both know I was never gonna leave with her.
I'd take you alive and puking worms over not having you at all.
[TENDER MUSIC.]
[CRICKETS CHIRPING.]
What are you thinking about? My parents.
Thinking how different it would be if they were still alive.
I wanna blame Peri, but I get it.
I killed her brother.
I can't blame her for what she did.
You're so strong, McKenna.
I mean, as soon as the chrysalis came on, as soon as the pain and the fear set in, I did anything I could to escape it, and all the horrible things I did, I'm trying to be better But a part of me just thinks that lying and manipulating is in my DNA.
You can't just flip a switch and go back to how you were.
You've lost a lot, too.
I'm sorry.
I really am.
MCKENNA: It's okay.
ALEX: We know you're trying to fight it, Violet.
To be fair, you are still manipulating us.
I am? Somehow tricked us into having a slumber party.
- [GIGGLES.]
- [CHUCKLES SOFTLY.]
I didn't bring face masks.
[ALL LAUGH.]
Do it.
Just go.
[TENDER MUSIC.]
ALEX: [SIGHS.]
April's asking too many questions.
I don't know how much longer - I can keep from telling her everything.
- [PHONE CHIMES.]
- Maybe we should leave.
- And go where? I mean, no matter where we go, we're endangering somebody.
Guys, Peri's been arrested.
ALEX: What? Do you have, like, a Google Alert on her or something? - Yeah, you don't? - Guys, what does it say? They found a body in the back of her car.
I don't know, maybe Justin? Wait, why would she be driving around with it? Who the hell knows.
Well, you mentioned a plan she was telling you about.
What was it? I don't know, some bullshit story about Margaret Abbott's hometown, her church, and and some priest that could supposedly help with the curse.
Wait, a church? Why didn't you say this before? Like I said, it sounded like bullshit.
Plus, you were dying and I was kind of freaking out over the fact that my girlfriend's a killer.
Okay, it's-it's fine, it's just Isaac kept saying he was being pulled to a church.
He was drawing it.
Yeah, that can't be a coincidence.
We're gonna need something more specific than that.
Yeah, like, Margaret Abbott's hometown.
Did she say anything about that? No.
Well, then you're gonna have to ask her.
[TENSE MUSIC.]
It's all we have.
[MUSIC TURNS SINISTER.]
- Want me to go in with you? - No.
She won't buy it unless I come in alone.
I just don't know what I'm gonna say.
She's gonna try to get inside your head.
Don't let her.
She knows your weak spots, but you know hers now.
She's vulnerable when it comes to her brother, and she clearly still needs you, so use it against her.
[SIGHS.]
HENRY: Hey, tell the cops you're a friend who just read the news.
You don't know anything about what she's done.
You got away from her because you stood your ground, and you fought back.
You're really strong, okay? You can do this.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
[CAR DOOR CLOSES.]
How much do you want to go in there all "Terminator" -style and kill Peri? 60%.
So that's how you do it? How you get people to do what you want? Say what you want them to say? I guess so.
I don't think I'll ever forgive you for any of the shit you've done, but as long as you keep using your evil powers for good We'll be okay.
[DOOR BUZZES.]
[RADIO CHATTER.]
[DISTANT SHOUTING.]
You got five minutes.
I'll tell you when your time's up.
I didn't think I'd see you again.
I'm sorry I hurt you, but you can't exactly blame me for freaking out.
No, I get it.
Peri I haven't told the police anything.
Yet.
[TENSE MUSIC.]
That's not why you're here? No.
I want to make sense of things.
Besides the police would think I was crazy, right? Say, as crazy as driving around with your brother's body in the back of your car? Explain that to me.
[CHUCKLES.]
Who said it was Justin? What? You have to go to the ER today, got it? Yeah.
[SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
Thank you.
I can't keep lying to her.
At this point, I'm just smiling and nodding.
Maybe we should tell her the truth.
No.
It's Alex's call.
[PHONE RINGING.]
Sammi, we've been Skye? Hey, what happened? - [RAGGED BREATHING.]
- Trey? - Sammi! - Trey SINGER: We're at the end - The light is spent - [CRYING.]
No.
- SINGER: All is quiet - No.
- SINGER: Breathe it in - MCKENNA: No.
SINGER: Alone, left Long since put to bed Waited for a pulse but talking to the dead Here Here comes Here comes the night Here comes the night Here Here comes Here comes the night Here comes the night [VOCALIZING.]
