Midnight, Texas (2017) s02e07 Episode Script

Resting Witch Face

1 Previously, on "Midnight, Texas" - What you got there? - Everything I need to pledge my loyalty to the Children of Theophilus.
The writing carved into the skin, it's definitely Syriac.
- Can you translate? - I know Kai is stockpiling - supernatural powers.
- It's me.
- I missed you today, darlin'.
- Thought you were calling Manfred but you called me.
- That's not me.
- You weren't just - hunting together, were you? - [ROARS] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [SHOUTS] [BOTH SHOUTING] - Go find your husband.
- How would you feel if I reached into your life and snuffed out - everything you love? - [SHAKY BREATHING] - Who did this to you? - [GASPS] [SOBBING] [SHAKY BREATHING] [TENSE MUSIC] Kai! Get out here and face me, you son-of-a-bitch! - Kai! - Manfred? - Step back.
- What's going on? - Get back! - You got something you want - to say to me? - You bastard.
- You killed her.
- [BOTH GRUNTING] - [GASPS] - The hell's wrong with you? - Are you crazy? - You threatened me and now she's gone! [GASPS, PANTING] You have no idea who you're messing with.
I can take your powers right now.
No! No! No, Kai! No! [ALL PANTING] - Are you all right? - What the hell's going on? He killed her.
He killed Creek.
- What? - Wait, wait! - What did you do? - I didn't kill anyone! Yes, you did! You're a dead man.
I'll kill you.
This isn't over.
[PANTING] Far from it.
[PANTING] - Hey.
- [SOBBING] I remember the day Creek and her family moved to town.
There hadn't been a child in Midnight well, ever.
And then there she was.
A ray of sunlight and hope in this dead and dusty town.
Creek wasn't like many of us here, but she accepted us.
To her [DEEP BREATH] We weren't outsiders.
We were family.
I think I speak for everyone here when I say Creek was the best of us.
She had strength.
She loved without judgment.
And with Creek you were never alone.
[BILLIE EILISH & KHALID'S "LOVELY" PLAYING] Need a place to hide But I can't find one near Wanna feel alive Outside I can't fight my fear Isn't it lovely All alone BOTH: Hello, welcome home Oh Oh, yeah I'm sorry.
I failed you.
[WOMAN VOCALIZING] But I'll make it right.
I'll always love you, Creek.
BOTH: Hello, welcome home A toast to Creek.
[SIGHS] Midnight won't be the same without you.
ALL: To Creek.
Hey, you okay? You haven't said much tonight.
No, I'm fine.
Just sad.
That that was a beautiful eulogy, Lem.
Joe will be devastated he missed it.
- Any word on him? - He's still out looking for Chuy, and it's been days.
Can't be good.
What is happening to us? I searched 20 miles in every direction.
- Still no sign of Creek's car.
- And no body.
It's like she just disappeared.
Because he burned her body.
- Right, Feej? - Manfred.
We still don't know that Kai did any of this.
- [MUTTERS INDISTINCTLY] - Guys, I'm gonna go home, okay? Do you want me to go, too? No, I'm fine.
- [SIGHS] - Kai killed Creek to get back at me for sleeping with his wife, and then he doused her with goat's blood and he torched her.
Just like he watched us do with Bruce and Carolyn's bones in the hotel to make their spirits move on.
He made sure she couldn't talk to me.
Don't you need to be a witch to do something like that? Well, I mean, any idiot can wield magic if they're motivated enough.
[SIGHS] I think my dad proved that.
Yeah, but Kai's not just any idiot.
He's got a A head in a cage that only he can move, an arsenal full of monster juju - at his disposal.
- Okay.
[TENSE MUSIC] - How do we stop him? - By figuring out what he's up to.
And the first step to doing that: Translating the Syriac writing on the head.
[CRICKETS CHIRPING] [SINISTER MUSIC] [GROANS] [WEAK GROANING] [COUGHING, GROANING] What happened here? - [WEAK GROANING] - It's okay, it's okay.
- I'm here.
- [GROANING] [SNARLING] It's okay.
I'm here.
It's okay.
[SIGHS] Oh.
Uh, can we can we talk? [SIGHS] [SHAKY SIGH] Oh, my God, Manfred.
I am so sorry.
I I still can't believe any of this is even happening.
I'm I'm sick about it.
[SHAKY BREATHING] I wanted to come to Creek's memorial but I I thought me being there It's better you didn't.
Really.
- [STAMMERS, SNIFFS] - You do know that Kai killed her, right? - Just tell me you know that.
- No, no, no, no.
My husband wouldn't kill a tick to stop it from biting him.
I cannot believe that he would hurt Creek.
But then again, I [WEAK LAUGH] I never thought that he would forcibly try and take away someone else's powers or lie to me about his ability to give those powers back.
[SIGHS] Oh, God, I believed him for years.
I had no reason not to until now.
I don't know who I'm married to anymore.
[SOMBER MUSIC] You must think I'm such a fool.
[SIGHS] I'm just I'm worried about you.
Well, I'm worried about you, too, and that's why I came here.
Um, I have something for you.
I got it from a Lakota Medicine Woman.
It's supposed to protect you in case Kai tries to take your powers again.
I'm a gypsy.
Protective amulets don't actually work.
Well, still, it would make me feel better.
Manfred, I've never seen Kai like this before.
He's furious.
At you, at me for trying to help you.
I'm afraid of what he might do.
Please? [WEAK LAUGH] It would at least make me feel like I'm helping you out a little.
I'm taking care of you.
[SIGHS] - [SNIFFLES] - [LAUGHS] Barely even looked at me the past few days.
The grief just hit me harder than I thought.
Honestly, it it's been overwhelming.
I mean, I know that everybody looks to me to be the positive one, but right now I just can't.
I'm sorry.
Don't be sorry.
Of course it's hard.
I was just worried it was, uh something else.
Don't worry.
It's not.
[LAUGHS SOFTLY] [MOANS] [GIGGLES] Hey, I thought you were tired.
- [MOANS] - Didn't you say you were so tired? [EERIE RUSHING] Yeah [DARK MUSIC] [YAWNS] I'm sorry, babe.
[MUMBLING INDISTINCTLY] [LAUGHS] [LIGHTS BUZZING] [JUKEBOX WHIRS] [LINDI ORTEGA'S "I WANT YOU" PLAYING] There will be angels there will be devils I will be in-between But I cross that line some of the time And lately I've been mean - Nothing? - Nothing.
Okay, this is the last - of Joe's stash.
- [SIGHS] What even is "Syriac"? Joe said it was a dialect of Aramaic that even he had a hard time translating.
No one's used it in a thousand years.
Ha! Well, this is impossible without him.
Here.
Finally.
[MYSTERIOUS MUSIC] Okay.
This looks like an "E.
" And another "E.
" What is is that an "H"? [MUTTERS INDISTINCTLY] Is that "D"? No.
Uh, so an "E.
" [SIGHS] [DOOR CREAKS] [SIGHS] [FLOORBOARDS SQUEAKING] - I saw you.
- [GASPS] I I saw you with Manfred.
I mean, what what could you possibly have to say to him? I went there to clean up the mess you made.
You went too far trying to take away his powers.
Now we're gonna have to play nice with the neighbors if we ever want to get this place back up We're gonna play nice with the neighbors? So so we're gonna put everyone's needs over mine.
Oh, I'm sorry.
You're always putting everyone else's needs above mine.
It's my job to take care of people.
- That's my job.
- Right, other people.
But you, on the other hand, you you hire this psychic without consulting me, you you give the vampire his powers back, you You run around with him all hours of the night like some damn Scooby gang.
- I'm done here.
I'm tried.
- And and, oh, yeah, you're screwing Manfred.
- I told you, that voice - [STAMMERING] I know the voicemail was fake, but Lem says that tricksters play off drama that already exists, so there's gotta be some truth to it.
[TENSE MUSIC] [SIGHS] [SNIFFS] All these years [STAMMERS] Everything I've done, I've never asked for anything in return.
I just hoped for your love and and your loyalty.
I'm so sorry.
It meant nothing.
I was just so lonely.
[SNIFFLES] You are my husband, and I love you.
Please don't give up on me.
- [SNIFFS] - You need to pick a side.
[SHAKY BREATH] [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] [BOTH GRUNT] - [GROANS] - Did you really think - I didn't know you were there? - [GROANS] What the hell are you doing here? What do you think? Heading the right direction.
Chuy's not far off.
A demon compass? Pretty cool, right? Go home, Walker.
It's between Chuy and me.
Well, I'm involved whether you like it or not.
No.
No, you're not.
He's killed innocent people, Joe.
- We need to put him down - This is my husband we're talking about.
The man I love.
Not some big game trophy for you to put on your wall.
So I'm not gonna tell you again.
Get the hell out of here.
Or what, angel? You ain't gonna hurt a human.
You wanna bet? All right, then.
Go on, do it.
That's the only way you're gonna stop me from killing Chuy.
"N" and "A.
" - I think that's it.
- Great.
- What the hell does it mean? - Wait a minute.
Aramaic is written right to left.
Syriac must be the same.
So That works.
"An army of seventy times seven beasts - to free thee" - So the head in the cage is cursed and Kai's trying - to jail-break it.
- Seems like it.
And it would take an army of beasts to do it? Wait a minute, maybe it's not meant to be literal.
Not not a literal army, just the horsepower.
The vials of monster power.
- Kai has hundreds of them.
- Kai is harvesting the monster power to free the head.
But why? To what end? And how many more does he need? I watched her take him from me [EERIE RUSHING] [EERIE BREATHING] And his love is no longer My own [SHAKY BREATHING] Now they are gone And I sit alone And watch one cigarette burn away It won't be long now.
I've literally Googled "head in cage with Syriac curse tattooed on forehead.
" Nada.
- You? - Just a detailed description of how to turn semen into hot sauce.
Okay, well, let's file that in "things I never need to hear again.
" Got it.
It belong to Kiva Goldwater.
She was a drabarni.
- Huh? - A gypsy shaman.
Huh, okay.
And you have her eyeball because? Xylda won it in a bet.
Thought it might come in handy one day and, well.
.
[SIGHS] Here we are, I guess.
Look, Kiva was an expert in curses.
And if anyone knows anything about an obscure cursed head in a cage, it's her.
Let's just hope she hasn't crossed over yet.
- Xylda's a tramp! - Watch your mouth, Kiva.
That's my grandma you're smack-talking.
Well, she beat me to everything.
First to divorce.
First to curse the Kardashian clan.
And then first to cross over before I did? Huh! [SPITS] My grandma was lucky.
You, not so much.
But if you can help me explain this curse, - maybe I can help you.
- Well, who is that tall drink? [CHUCKLES] Oh, look at the size of his hands.
[GASPS] [TENSE MUSIC] "An army of seventy times seven beasts to free thee.
" - You've heard of it? - Every drabarni worth her weight in gold has heard of it.
It's "The Curse of the Seventy Times Seven.
" What can you tell us? That I don't work for free.
- I'll help you cross over.
- Hmm.
Actually, uh, I have a better idea.
[RASPY INHALE] [BAND PLAYING LIVELY ROCK MUSIC] I got a hog-tied woman - Hey - A hog-tied woman Well, hog-tied Whoo! [INDISTINCT CHATTER] [LAUGHTER] I said, ride around town with the top down.
Everything tonight is the best this place has ever seen.
[LAUGHING] [LAUGHS] Damn.
Hello, gorgeous.
Hello, yourself.
Saw your post on Supernaturals Anonymous.
Says monsters drink free.
Is that true? Well, that depends.
Are you a monster? I could show you.
- Oh, really? - I could show you everything.
I want to see it all.
[HISSES] Thanks, but I got a better offer.
[LAUGHS] [KIVA'S ACCENT] Oh, yeah.
Oh, yeah.
Oh, yeah, right there.
[GROANS] My heel spurs are killing me.
[GROANS] You have no idea what a grind Limbo is.
[GROANS] Get between the toes.
You know what? You tell Manfred to spit you out or he's gonna lose an eye.
[HOARSE EXHALE] [PANTING] [GROANS] So [GROANS] About the curse.
Well, it was used once, to my knowledge, on a very powerful witch.
The founder of the Dark Magic.
Dark Magic had to come from somewhere.
Who do you think started the Dark Ages? Was this him? - Where did you get that? - Someone's trying - to bring him back.
- Manny, if that is him, you should know He has a twin.
They were the original witches.
The Dark Magic, if came from their connection.
The curse separated the twins, neutering their strength.
Should the curse be broken, they will regain - their full power.
- And then what? Darkness falls.
[CONSPIRATORIAL MUSIC] What is it? Is his twin named Kai? Uh, I'm not sure.
The other twin, he was scrubbed out from history, some people say by the twin himself to protect his identity.
This name I know.
It's Theophilus.
The Father of Darkness.
[BAND PLAYING PEPPY ROCK MUSIC] [MAN SINGING INDISTINCTLY] - Name, sweetheart? - Um - I didn't catch your name.
- No, you didn't.
[LAUGHING] What do you say we get out of here? BOTH: Yeah.
I wanna watch you walk away.
[ALL GIGGLING] I'm the luckiest girl in here tonight.
Woke up to a noise complaint from the neighbors, which was real confusing considering the bar was supposed to be closed tonight.
- What the hell? - I'm just blowing off some steam, letting my freak flag fly, and right about now my freak flag wants to get nailed by a couple of vamps.
You wanna watch? Could be hot.
[SENSUAL LAUGH] This blood bag bothering you, honey? - Oh, we're good.
- [HISSES] Let's go.
Hey, hey, this This isn't you, all right? - It's dark magic.
- [LAUGHS] Good, 'cause it's everything I ever wanted to be but was too afraid to admit before.
I'm free now.
When I took that butterfly out I took all my cares and worries out with it, including you.
That's why the curse is broken, dumbass.
I don't love you anymore.
Oh, did you think that I was gonna settle down with some Nazi-born, hick town barkeep? [LAUGHS] Please! [LAUGHS] I'm gonna go play kitty-in-the-middle, and then I'm gonna go find me a Michael B.
Jordan, so back off.
You're not going anywhere with them.
[DARK MUSIC] Honey, I kept up the good-girl act to keep your fragile, straight white male ego in check but, honey, the last thing I need is saving.
I've evolved, Bobo.
You should, too.
- Shall we? - Yes.
- Whoop! - [LAUGHING] [HISSES] [GROWLS] [SIGHS] Guys, Fiji's a dark witch.
No, Fiji is Glinda the Good Witch through and through.
She was until she pulled the butterfly out of her chest and swore herself to the dark side to save my hide.
- Come again? - I know it's crazy but Fiji was researching how to break her family curse, and she discovered that when you're a witch you're either a child of Delilah, a good witch, or a child of Theophilus, a bad one.
Did you just say "Theophilus"? Yeah, why? This is Theophilus.
He's Kai's twin.
They're the original dark witches.
That's why Kai is harvesting monster powers.
To bring him back.
So you're telling me that Fiji's ancient villainous ancestor been living across the street - this whole damn time? - I don't know about anyone else but I am tired of evil making its way into Midnight.
I say we go have a little chat with our neighbors.
- Let's go.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Hang on, cowboys.
Look, rule number one: You never go into anything blind.
Yes, even though Patience gave you your powers back we still don't know where they hid the other vials, and we can't move the head, and we don't know how powerful Kai is.
Or Fiji, for that matter.
Sorry, Bobo.
You guys, we need more information before we just storm the castle.
We need Fiji.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] This really necessary? I let you go you find Chuy or Chuy finds you, so now I have to look out for you both.
Look, I know it's hard, but we both know it's gotta happen, and I don't think you have the backbone when it counts.
Let me go.
- I'll handle it for you.
- You don't get it.
Chuy's in this position because of us.
We're not to blame, Joe.
I am.
Don't make me choose between you and Chuy, because you will lose.
- Let's go.
- You will never know what it's like to be human, and hunted, and hated by demons for no reason at all.
And you'll never know what it's like to watch your own mama get her heart torn out in front of you.
And you'll never know what it's like to love somebody for 1,000 years and to be loved for 1,000 years.
I'm sorry about your family, Walker.
I am.
But Chuy is my family, and I'll do whatever it takes to save him.
Let's go.
- Fiji? - Hey, Feej.
Fiji? Get your ass out here.
She's not here.
What the? That's new.
[SNIFFING] [GRUNTS] [CONSPIRATORIAL MUSIC] My God.
Holy Yeah, this is bad.
- What the hell are those? - It's our hair.
Lem's blood.
- How did I miss this? - We all missed it.
Hey, guys! What is it? [EXCLAIMS] Is that blood? Those are Creek's.
Oh, my God.
Fiji did it.
- Ooh! - [ALL GIGGLING] Come here, baby.
[ALL MOANING] Oh, no, I won't back down From a fight How about we try something a little more interesting? - Sounds good.
- [ALL GIGGLING] [WOMAN SINGING INDISTINCTLY] [ALL GIGGLING] Ooh.
You're bad.
I like that.
You better believe that it doesn't get better Where'd you go, baby? - I'm right here.
- [ALL LAUGHING] Oh-oh-oh [FLESH SIZZLING] [BOTH SCREAMING] You witch! - You're damn right.
- [BOTH GROANING, GASPING] [DARK MUSIC] [BOTH GROANING, WAILING] [BOTH GASPING] [LONG INHALE] [GROANING] [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] [PHONE VIBRATING] [SHAKY BREATHING] [ROUSING ROCK MUSIC] No! You.
Where are you? You! [DOORS SLAM] - What have you done?! - I'm burning your dark magic.
I know what you did.
All of it.
You're wrong, Fiji.
You do need saving.
Ever the Boy Scout, huh? Maybe I was too subtle at the bar.
[DRAMATIC FLAIR] [TENSE MUSIC] - Black salt.
- I hear it stops evil in its tracks.
You're so cute when you try things you don't understand.
[BLOWING] [SHRIEKING, PANTING] Good old fashioned iron.
- Witch Kryptonite.
- [GROWLING] This is for your own good.
- You talk, we'll lift the nails.
- [LAUGHING] Creek was your friend.
- Why? - Creek just got in the way.
Yeah, answers like that? They just don't work.
[GRUNTS] [SHRIEKING] - [LAUGHING] - You're not a killer, Feej.
Evil or not, I still don't believe you did it.
Well, I didn't do it.
I didn't kill Creek.
Oh, but I did cover it up, though.
[LAUGHING] You were right.
But it was me that burned her bones.
Had to make sure she moved on quick 'cause we all know how much Creek liked to talk.
[SCREAMING, LAUGHING] You whore! - [LAUGHING] - What did Kai do to you? He helped me see the light.
When I pledged myself to the darkness, Theophilus spoke to me.
I followed his voice to this hotel.
I wanted to serve him.
[SIGHS] You can't stop us.
You know that, right? We have all seventy times seven beasts collected.
Theophilus will rise by dawn.
Kai has everything he needs to lift the curse.
- [LAUGHING] - So now what? Poor Manfred.
You're never meant to find love, are you? The hell is that supposed to mean? You know.
Dark magic always requires a sacrifice.
Oh, God.
- Patience.
- [LAUGHING] [FOREBODING MUSIC] [CACKLING] [GROWLING] [COMPASS WHIRRING] - What does this mean? - It's a compass.
He's here.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] [ROARING] - Chuy, no! - [ROARING] - [SCREAMS] - [ROARS] Please, stop! Remember our wedding? It stormed for weeks.
We decided to get married anyway.
[TENSE MUSIC] Rain or shine we promised we'd never give up on one another.
No matter how ugly things got.
Remember? [ROARING] [LIGHT BUZZING] Walker! I can't do it! I can't kill the man you love because I love you.
- No! - [ROARING] [GROANING] [PANTING] - [WEAK GASP] - No, no, no, no.
- No! - [RAPID PANTING] You didn't give me any choice! [WHIMPERING] [SOBBING] [SCREAMS] [TRAGIC MUSIC] I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry.
[SHAKY BREATHING] [CRICKETS CHIRPING] [QUIET, SOMBER MUSIC] Don't touch me.
I might have been the one to kill Chuy But it's just as much your fault he's dead.
None of this would have happened if I never met you.
[SHAKY INHALE] Joe [STAMMERS] I never want to see you again.
You can't mean that.
Leave.
Never come back.
Go! [SHAKY EXHALE] [GRUNTING] [GROANING] [DARK MUSIC] We don't have much time.
- We'll have to split up.
- Meet you back - at Home Cooking.
- Lem.
I can't lose anyone else.
Be careful.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] Patience? Should I just give you your own key? - Where's Patience? - You know you're trespassing.
I could kill you just for being in here.
We know everything.
The vials, the head, the Curse of Seventy Times Seven.
Creek.
I'm not gonna let you get away with it.
- Oh, yeah? - Yeah, I'm here for Patience and I am not leaving without her.
Over my dead body.
Mm.
Okay, then.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] Lem? What are you doing here? We've gotta get you out of here, you're in danger.
Wait a minute.
I don't understand.
There's no time to explain.
I'm sorry.
[BOTH HOLLERING, GRUNTING] It's over, Kai.
We have Fiji.
We know she's been doing your dirty work.
We know you had her get rid of Creek, you coward! I had nothing to do with Creek's death.
You can blame me for what you want - I didn't touch that girl.
- Liar! You took away what I loved most.
Now I'm gonna return the favor.
I'm gonna destroy that damn head, and there's no way in hell you're bringing - your brother back.
- It's not my brother.
But, then then whose is he? - Huh? - Theophilus, it's It's Patience's twin.
[PANTING] No.
[TENSE MUSIC] [INDISTINCT MURMURING] No, no, but But Patience said the head was your ancestor.
That you draw your power from him.
[STAMMERS, PANTING] I don't know why she'd tell you that.
What do you know about all this? Why should I tell you? 'Cause I feel like you and I have been fed very different information.
I I knew she was a witch.
But a good one.
She had her brother, they were persecuted more than 800 years ago.
They were cursed by a dark witch, Delilah.
She was jealous.
She felt the twins, they They were too strong together, so she cut Theo's head off to separate them, to take their powers away.
Okay, and where where does Fiji fit in to all this, huh? No, she just She wanted to help.
Patience said she was a good witch, too, - so we let her help.
- What, so you just You collected the vials to break the curse? I wanted to give Patience her brother back.
And it was slow at first.
It was maybe a dozen monsters a year.
And then we learned of Of Midnight, and the energy that this place drew.
But there was no harm being done.
There was none.
I was I was healing monsters And, I thought, healing the woman that I love, 'cause a piece of her was missing - without her brother.
- You don't get it.
Your wife lied to you.
[SINISTER MUSIC] The twins aren't the good guys.
Theophilus is the father of black magic! Together they'll be the most powerful being to ever walk this Earth, and it'll be your fault.
You helped her! Why are you wearing this? Uh, Patience gave it to me to protect me from you.
No, that that belonged to Theophilus.
That was gonna be used to bring him back.
- Bring him back how? - That necklace, it's like a A binder to fuse Theo's head to a host body.
Patience assured me no one was gonna get hurt.
We we were gonna use the cadaver from the morgue.
She put that on you.
[EERIE RUSHING] [GRUNTING]
