Midnight, Texas (2017) s01e10 Episode Script

The Virgin Sacrifice

1 Previously on "Midnight, Texas" The veil between the living and the dead - is awful thin here.
- I think you're gonna lead an army and seal the veil forever.
It's your destiny.
I got a vision.
Midnight in flames and you in the center, the only one to stop it.
You need to go back.
If I don't, they all die? You came back.
You and I, we've got unfinished business.
I'm here because of her.
I don't want to be turned.
Once you turn, you'll like it.
[SCREAMS, GRUNTS] Olivia, I'm so Back off! Despite what happened, I love you.
As soon as Fiji's safe, I'm leaving Midnight.
[DEMONIC VOICE] Fiji Colconnar, he's chosen you.
There's no way in hell I'm letting this thing get anywhere near you, I promise, Fij.
I'm a virgin witch, a powerful virgin witch, and that is why it wants me.
Your emotions - [GASPING] - [SCREAMS] - You need to control them.
- Jeremy? Colconnar sent me because he knew you'd listen to me.
Go to him willingly, or they all die.
[BROODING MUSIC] [FLIES BUZZING] We know where they're taking her.
Going back to Midnight, bringing her to Colconnar.
To use her.
When the demons came through the veil last time, they used women to go forth and multiply.
That thing wants to It wants to have sex with her.
Which is utterly awful.
But not surprising.
Fiji's as powerful a natural witch as I've ever seen.
All the more powerful because she hasn't Yes, we know.
She's a virgin.
I don't give a damn why it wants her.
It's not gonna lay a finger or a claw or whatever the hell it has on her.
We won't let it.
[BROODING MUSIC] What has he done? You can feel him, can't you? Getting closer, stronger.
- [RUMBLING] - [GASPING] [CRACKING] - Oh, God, is that it? - Not yet.
He will come to you tonight.
[DEMONIC VOICE] Fiji Colconnar is very eager to meet you.
When I died, the shaman said the first demon was gonna rise on the night of a blood moon, that's tonight.
Well, besides the creepy name, what does that mean? Xylda and I wouldn't even do readings on nights of blood moons.
They create a potent psychic environment that can be a conduit for evil.
It's too dangerous.
It's also a full moon.
This just keeps getting better.
Fiji's spell worked.
I know how to kill Colconnar.
[WRAITHS SNARLING] Oh, God.
Colconnar sent them to guard you.
Creek, Olivia, Bobo, you guys find Fiji.
Keep her safe until Colconnar's gone.
Done.
How are you gonna kill it? - Details aren't important.
- Aren't they? Before we worry about killing Colconnar, what are we gonna do about the wraiths? They barely touched me burned right through my clothes, hurt like hell.
What kind of weapons did we bring? This is everything.
Wraiths are spirit manifestations of evil.
An ax isn't gonna cut it.
I'm thinking we go old school.
They're evil.
Evil doesn't like holy water.
It burns, they recoil.
We clear a path to Fiji.
Will this do? Yeah, I can sanctify this and bless these weapons.
While they're with Fiji, we head to the pawn shop.
Why the pawn shop? There's stuff there I need.
Hey.
Are you gonna be okay using consecrated weapons? Over the years, I've developed a tolerance for holy water.
At most, it stings.
Wow, I hate to break it to you, but you're just not that evil.
It can't be easy for you, knowing what Colconnar intends for Fiji.
Nothing's going to happen to her.
You look tired.
You need energy? Or do you need to not be scared? Maybe.
[SOFT LAUGH] But we're not together anymore, so probably not the best idea.
There's something you're not telling me.
How exactly are you planning to kill Colconnar? - Details aren't - Important? You said that.
You're trying to spare me, aren't you? Look, we're gonna do this, whatever the risks are.
So, yeah, I'm trying to spare you.
And I'd appreciate it if you let me.
Fine.
Spare me.
But don't die this time.
Deal.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] It's time you prepare yourself for his arrival.
You look unworthy.
Jeremy, Jeremy, Jeremy, Jeremy If there's any part of you in there, your heart, your kindness, please don't let him do this to me.
There is no part of me that's Jeremy.
[FLESH HISSES] [SCREAMS] [PANTING] You're one of them.
Colconnar was in my head [WIND WHISTLING] In my sleep, in my dreams.
It's how Colconnar knows you.
Which means [WRAITHS SNARLING] We all know you.
We're a reminder.
You're not all that different from Colconnar.
Your powers destroy.
They kill.
Just like his.
It's time you got ready for him.
[BROODING MUSIC] [DOOR SLAMS] [CRYING] [SLOWLY] Don't cry Fiji.
He's right.
I have to get ready.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] [DRIVING ROCK MUSIC] Okay, we save Fiji, kill a demon, close a portal to hell.
And we don't die.
Sound like a plan? My flesh is burning.
Stop talking.
Let's go.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] They're in front of the church.
Looks like all the wraiths are by you.
Yeah, looks like.
And they look different, like more solid.
Doesn't matter.
They're still spirit manifestations.
They can take any shape they want.
They're evil, and consecrated weapons will work.
Any idea what they're doing? On second thought, never mind.
They'll distract the wraiths for us.
How? [WHISTLES SHARPLY] [TENSE MUSIC] [CROSSBOW TWANGS] - [WHOOSH] - Well, that was effective.
[WHOOSHING] But not for that long.
[GUN COCKS] [SHOTGUN FIRES, SWORDS WHIPPING] [SHOTGUN FIRES, PISTOLS FIRING] [SHOTGUN FIRING] It's clear.
Let's go.
[GUNFIRE] Damn it.
Go to Fiji's.
I'll make sure you're covered.
- Olivia! - Go! Get inside the pawn shop! - [SHOUTS] - [RIFLE FIRING] [RIFLE COCKING] [RIFLE FIRING] Come on.
Let's go inside.
[RIFLE FIRES] - Fiji! - Open up! It's us! Fiji! Creek, Bobo, what are you You should not have come back.
I left so that you would be safe, so that what happened to Manfred would not happen to Nothing happened.
He died, but he came back to life.
And your spell worked.
He got answers.
Oh, okay.
Well, thank goddess he's alive.
But still, I do not want anybody else getting hurt! No.
Manfred knows how to stop Colconnar.
We're not leaving you.
Maybe I want you to.
I can deal with Colconnar.
But I cannot deal with you dying for me.
Olivia's coming.
[GRUNTING] [INTENSE MUSIC] - [FLESH HISSING] - [SCREAMS] [AGONIZED SCREAMS] - [GRUNTS] - [SNARLING] [GROANING] [CHOKED GASPING] - Get her on the couch! - [DOOR SLAMS] [STRAINED GASPING] Gonna be all right, okay? Fiji's gonna take care of you.
[GASPS, GROANING] [GROWLING, PEOPLE SCREAMING] [PEOPLE SCREAMING AND CRYING] [EERIE MUSIC] [WAILING CONTINUES] [WOMAN CRYING AND SCREAMING] [EXHALES] [GUNSHOTS, DISTANT SCREAMING] [WOMAN SCREAMS] No! [WOMEN SHRIEKING] [WOMAN CACKLING] [DISTANTLY] Manfred Manfred Manfred! [EERIE MUSIC] What exactly are you looking for? The shaman said that to fight evil, I need to know evil.
There are spirits tethered to objects here.
Some of them are evil.
You think any of them are demonic? [SCOFF] I'm sure, given some of the folks, supernatural and otherwise, who pawned things over the years.
Let me see what I can find.
[PESTLE GRINDING] She's in a lot of pain.
I know that.
My salve healed me, healed you.
But Olivia's burns are deep.
I'm not sure salve's gonna help her.
Try.
I really wish you'd have stayed away.
- [GROANS] - You're gonna take this.
It's gonna be a little gritty, but it's gonna make you sleepy and stop the hurt.
Might even give you a fun dream or two.
[GROANS] It's awful.
I know.
Let me take a look at The wraith did a number on you.
Mm.
But you are an assassin.
I'm sure you been in worse scrapes.
[CELL PHONE RINGS] It's Manfred.
Don't tell him.
- [PHONE RINGING] - Olivia.
Lem would want to know the truth.
It'll distract them.
And they don't need that.
- [PHONE RINGING] - I'm telling you.
Don't.
[PHONE BEEPS] Manfred? Yeah, we made it to Fiji's.
You don't need to worry about her.
She's okay.
You just focus on Colconnar, okay? 'Cause nightfall's not far off.
[SOFTLY] Thank you.
You're right.
Okay.
Love you.
And, uh, yes, I know that's a first.
Did you say that because you don't think you're gonna survive this? Does it matter? No.
I love you too.
[EXHALES] [SOFT MUSIC] [EERIE WHISPERING] You wanted evil.
A, by all accounts, happy and successful family man - found that on a hike.
- [MAN CACKLING] That afternoon, he beat his wife and six children to death.
Said a demon made him do it.
Sounds perfect.
[WHISPERING] Help me, help me [WAILING] No! Why are they crying? Iron spider.
Used to torture witches during the Inquisition.
[WOMEN WEEPING, SCREAMING] [RATTLING] - Voodoo hoof rattle.
- [RATTLES] [SCREAMING VOICES INTENSIFY] - [SIGHS] - What is it? It's like an ice pick behind my eye.
[SIGHS] Man, I miss my pills.
[DISTANT WAILING AND SCREAMING] [ECHOING VOICES SWELL AND EBB] Will this help? [WAILING AND SCREAMING] [VOICES FADE] [EXHALES] Any port in a storm.
[SOFT MUSIC] So how exactly do you plan to know evil? I plan to let evil hijack me.
These are ancient, malevolent, demonic spirits.
Yep, that's the idea.
It could kill you.
Let's hope it doesn't.
Do you want some blood? My blood? Thanks, but no thanks.
Vampires aren't exactly efficient against demons.
I know.
And, no, it wasn't to turn you, Manfred.
I'd have to feed on you for that.
Vampire blood makes humans stronger, heal faster.
There are side effects, but being possessed by demons could have side effects too.
I'll stick to this.
[BROODING MUSIC] [CREEPY LAUGHTER] I have some more items in the basement, if you want.
These these will be enough.
Okay.
[MAN CACKLING] She's burning up.
I'm worried about infection.
She should be in a hospital.
Well, then, why don't we all leave? 'Cause the last time I left, Colconnar sent those things to bring me back.
I'm not putting Olivia in any more danger for me.
I'll go.
Bobo, you stay here.
Go, go with them.
I'm not going anywhere, except to bring your car around.
You get her ready.
The veil tearing again must bring back memories for you.
Not good ones.
I hated being a soldier.
Bowie said that we were fighting to exterminate those inferior to us.
Never seemed worth the bloodshed.
But this battle, it's different.
It's worth it.
Because now Midnight's home.
Would you like me to consecrate this for you? [ENGINE REVVING] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [ENGINE REVS, TIRES SQUEAL] Are you okay? I have a sinking feeling I'm about to lose everything.
You're being pessimistic.
I know the level of demonic evil Manfred's about to unleash.
But I suppose these are desperate times.
Desperate times can bring out the best in people.
Like with you.
It wasn't that long ago I kept my distance from everyone.
- I was cordial, but - You ate alone.
Until the night my wereself was let out.
You searched for me.
You could have put me down.
But instead, everyone risked their lives to protect me from the darkness inside myself.
You're one of us.
I know that now.
Lem, we can use my church as sanctuary in case Colconnar cannot be stopped.
I'm afraid that doesn't do me any good.
I can help with that.
What are you doing? I'm burning a healing candle, for Olivia.
Don't look at me like that.
I'm willing it so.
Like my Aunt Mildred would say, intentions can change reality.
You said that you could deal with Colconnar.
What are you thinking? [TENDER MUSIC] My powers can be destructive.
I'm gonna use that.
I'm going to do everything I can to protect Midnight, to protect all of you.
I may not be strong enough, but I need you to let me try.
Try what? Colconnar's been after me a long time.
And he's not gonna stop.
I'm gonna stop him.
What aren't you telling me, Fij? I'm gonna give myself to him, and in the process, I'm gonna try to kill him.
That's insane.
You have no idea how dangerous I am.
I've done this before.
Done what before? Done what before? - What have you done before? - Killed someone! While intimate, I killed someone.
Fij Please, will you just talk to me? What's going on? I loved him.
[BROODING MUSIC] And I killed him.
I killed I didn't mean to, but I did.
His name was Jeremy.
Have you ever been possessed by a demonic spirit? Angry ex-husband? Yes.
Demon? No.
So you intend to be possessed by multiple demonic spirits on the night of a blood moon? What happens if you can't control those spirits once they're inside you? Well, then, we're all screwed, aren't we? Manfred, are you sure about this? Hell no, I'm not sure.
But the prophecy says, a man of vision who can bridge the worlds of the living and the dead, right? Never mentions what kind of dead, so this is the only way that makes sense to me.
So unless anyone else has a better idea, this is what we're going with.
What do you need from us? Joe, Lem, if you can stay close, in case I can't control these demons? [SIGHS] Rev, it's almost nightfall.
Moon's about to rise, so May I use your basement? Of course.
I will pray for you until I turn.
See you in the morning.
Spirits tethered to these objects, I call to you.
[EERIE MUSIC] I want to release you from your binds to this world.
If you can hear me, give me a sign.
[WHOOSHING] [SOFT RUMBLING] I invite you, cross over, let me see you.
[FAINT WHISPERING] [GROANS] [GROANING] [OMINOUS WHOOSHING] [CREAKING] [BESTIAL SNARLING] [GASPS] Is it working? [WHOOSHING] Oh, yeah, it is.
[DEMONS GROWLING] [SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC] [PAINED BREATHING] [GROANS] We're gonna be there really soon, okay? I I need you to give Lem a message.
You can tell him yourself as soon as you're better.
This may not end happy.
We don't know that.
[WINCING] But in case it doesn't, what's the message? I would have come back to him.
I'm offering a way out.
[DEMON SNARLS] Help me, and you don't have to be tethered to this world anymore, in limbo.
You can get out of this pawn shop.
Move on.
[WHOOSHING] [DEEP GROANING, WOMAN SHRIEKING] Come on.
I want to make a deal.
[GASPS HOARSELY] [WHOOSHING] [GASPS SHARPLY] [JOINTS CRUNCHING] [GRUNTING] Should we intervene? No.
[DEMONIC SNARLING] [BARKING] [GROANING WEAKLY] [SOFT EERIE MUSIC] [TENDER MUSIC] But you didn't intend to hurt him.
But I intend to hurt Colconnar.
Gonna take all my anger and my hurt, and do to him what I did to Jeremy.
He's a demon from hell.
What you got planned isn't gonna work, you know that.
But I got a better idea.
Colconnar wants you because you're a virgin witch, so instead of giving Colconnar what he wants, how about you don't? What does that even mean? I think you know what it means.
[LAUGHS] You're kidding, right? Wait, you're suggesting that that we While while the world's ending right outside this door? Can't very well do it after the world ends.
This isn't funny.
No, it's not.
You're right.
[SOFT MUSIC] But it's something I've thought about for a long time.
Since that first day you walked into the pawn shop with that plate of sand tarts.
You remember the cookies? Of course I do.
I thought you were out of my league.
Shut up.
You are beautiful and kind and funny.
Don't tell me you haven't thought about it.
[SCOFFS] Of course I have.
I just never imagined it like this.
What'd you imagine? Well I thought I thought I'd make you dinner.
A roast.
And twice-baked potatoes, maybe.
Then, we'd watch a movie.
I'd pick something scary so you'd put your arm around me, but Like this? Like that.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] [BOTH GRUNTING] [BREATHING HEAVILY] You're not scared? You're not that same girl you were back then.
So no.
Not one bit.
[SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC] [RUMBLING] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [FLAMES CRACKLING] [WHOOSHING] Bring the virgin witch to me.
[DEMONIC VOICE] Not gonna happen.
Evil is making you powerful.
Join us.
Nah.
[ENERGY WHOOSHES] [SNARLS SOFTLY] I'll pass.
Your mistake.
[ENERGY WHOOSHES] [GRUNTS] [WINGS WHOOSHING] Why don't you stop there? You're not laying a finger on her.
[SWORD SLICING] [GENTLE MUSIC] I don't want to hurt you.
You won't.
And if you do, I will die happy.
Bobo, this isn't a joke.
I love you too much to hurt you.
So don't.
You will it so.
Your magic is strong because you are strong.
Your love is strong.
And I trust you, completely.
So can we stop talking now? [LAUGHS SOFTLY] [MUSIC BUILDS] [RUMBLING] [SWORD WHIPPING] [ENERGY WHIRS] Fiji What did you do? [ROARING] No! Now you all die.
[ENERGY WHOOSHES] [EXPLOSIONS, GLASS SHATTERS] - [WHOOSH] - [GRUNTING] [EERIE MUSIC] You need more power.
[WHOOSH] [BEAST SNARLING, GLASS SHATTERS] Emilio, no! [GROWLING] - [BLADE SLICES] - [SNARLS] You don't belong here.
[BLADE CLINKS, ENERGY HUMS] [BLOW LANDS] Here, the man who sold it thought he was the devil himself.
[SNARLING] [DRAMATIC MUSIC BUILDS] [WHOOSH] [OMINOUS TONE] [DEMONIC VOICE] This is over.
[DRAMATIC ROCK MUSIC] [WHOOSH] No! [ENERGY HISSING] Get out of Midnight! [ENERGY BLASTING] [ROARING] No! [GROWLS AND PANTS] [FLAMES CRACKLING] [EERIE MURMURING] You're free now.
Get out of me and go to hell.
[SNARLS] [WHOOSHING] [GASPING] [COUGHING, GASPS] [FLAMES WHOOSH] [ASPHALT CRACKLING] Are you all right? I'm not sure.
But Colconnar's gone.
He is.
You're safe.
We all are.
Thank you.
Hey, Lem, there's something you need to know.
[SOFT TENSE MUSIC] Hey.
Uh, just with everything going on, I didn't know who else to call.
Please, please.
How's she doing? Uh, they say she has burn sepsis, and she's not responding to the antibiotics and she might not make it through the night.
Oh, God.
Okay.
[MONITOR BEEPING STEADILY] [PUMP HISSING] [TENSE MUSIC] Creek.
I'm sorry.
She's hanging on, but they said there's nothing more they can do.
She gave me a message for you.
She can tell me herself.
Where is she? [SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC] [FLESH SIZZLING] [DOOR OPENS] [HISSES] [FLESH TEARING] [SWALLOWS] I'm not dead.
I healed you with a little blood.
But I thought you said Vampire blood's not good for humans.
It isn't.
But I couldn't lose you, Olivia.
I'm sorry.
You won't.
[SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC] Didn't mean to worry you.
Things were touch-and-go for a while, but she's strong.
Your little girl's gonna be just fine.
No, don't.
Do not step foot in Midnight.
You do, things will get ugly real fast.
Now, trust me.
I have my eyes on her.
You're tempted, aren't you? [SIGHS] Yeah, I am.
You want to tell me what you spared me from? I let demon spirits hijack my body.
"Spirits," plural.
Six.
They helped me send that thing back to hell.
But I saw what they saw, felt what they felt, and that wasn't great.
Sorry about that.
Do you think it's time that you and I [DREAMY MUSIC] Family isn't always about blood.
Family are the people that accept you as you are, without judgment.
The people that stand with you in joy and agony.
[GENTLE MUSIC] With family, love doesn't come with conditions.
Sacrifices are made willingly, if only to spare your loved ones pain.
And if you're exceptionally lucky, you're born into that.
But sometimes not.
- Oh, my God, I'm so late.
- Sometimes it takes a long time to find that family.
Most of us know what it's like to be alone, solitary.
But because we know loneliness, we recognize the miracle, the magic, committing to that family, for good or bad, sickness or health, aging and not.
[LAUGHS] It's time to exchange the rings.
Don't worry.
- Platinum - [CHUCKLES] Not silver.
[GENTLE ACOUSTIC GUITAR MUSIC] [OLIVIA LAUGHS AND MURMURS] In over a century, I never married.
You are an adventure, Olivia Charity.
Mm.
Well, most men, my father included, they're the reason I do what I do for a living.
They made me angry and violent and cold, but you, dead guy [ROMANTIC GUITAR MUSIC] You came along and made me human again.
My pleasure.
I don't feel anything.
Maybe Manfred sealed the veil for good.
Maybe.
Or maybe he closed it for a thousand years.
That's a ways away.
I can live with that.
As I traced her spine You tear up my head To my peace of mind If you breathe in Want to go home? Is it rude? No.
How about we go then we come back in a little bit? So long as we come back before the cake.
[SOFT GIGGLE] Again? [HUFFS] Lucky.
[MONDO COZMO'S "PLASTIC SOUL"] You know none of this would have happened without you.
Well, I wouldn't have come back if it wasn't for you, so by extension, it's All this is because of me? Yay me.
Yay you.
How about you dance with me? Dancing, uh, not my favorite thing.
[SOFT LAUGH] Yeah, but it's mine.
Come on.
Every time I shape-shift into form I'm standing there right next to you I keep searching all these dying stars Just to get a glimpse of you [SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC BUILDS] [RUMBLING] [ROCKS CRUMBLING] The hell is that? You can hear that rumbling too? How can I not? [RUMBLING CONTINUES] [GRAVEL CRUNCHING] [MEN SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY] Oh, gosh.
Apologies.
[STAMMERS] A terrible first impression.
The trucks weren't supposed to arrive for another day Who are you? Melanie Pratt, work with Albany Worldwide.
We're a hospitality company and the new owners of the hotel.
Why would you buy the hotel? We're renovating.
I mean, it is a historic property.
I don't think that's wise.
Oh, this will completely revitalize Midnight.
We'll make this town a destination.
We'll get tourists in here from all over.
[SOFT WHISPERING, WAILING] [WOMAN SCREAMING] [SHARP, TENSE MUSIC] This town has a very colorful history.
That's one way to put it.
