Midnight, Texas (2017) s02e09 Episode Script

Yasss, Queen

1 Previously on Midnight, Texas I feel your every emotion as if it were my own.
There has to be a way to sever the connection.
If I turn you into a vampire.
What are you? I'm a demigod.
A trickster, to be exact.
I get into human business.
Stir the pot, create some chaos.
- Fiji's pretty far gone.
- I'm not giving up on her.
Nice try.
[BOTH HOLLERING] [GROANS] So sorry.
.
I'm so sorry.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] It's Theophilus.
The founder of the dark magic.
Theophilus It's Patience's twin.
If they catch you, Patience has everything she needs to bring Theophilus back.
It's my family, and I won't let anyone else die.
[SCREAMS] [ALL GASP, HOLLER] [WEEPING] [LAUGHING] [DARK MUSIC] [SOBBING, GASPING] [GASPS DEEPLY] Manfred, no.
[SOBBING] Oh, God! [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me.
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort [GROANING] [EXHALES SHARPLY] [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [EERIE WHISPERING] [WOMEN VOCALIZING] [SIGHS] [SPEAKS FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [GASPS] [EXHALES SHAKILY] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [LAUGHS SHAKILY] [SIGHS] [BOTH LAUGH] [WHISPERING] I'm free.
My dear brother! You've returned to me! [GASPS] [APPLAUSE] [WOMEN VOCALIZING] [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] [LAUGHING] [WOMEN SINGING] Oh.
[LAUGHING] [GASPS] Oh, hello.
Hello.
Oh, what is that dreadful smell? [SNIFFS, SCOFFS] I'm sorry, my dear, but insurrection will not be tolerated.
[SINISTER MUSIC] Oh, who knew conquering a town could be so exhausting.
- Mm-hmm - Could go for a shiatsu.
Shame Kai's not around.
You sure he's dead? I did a tracking spell.
Didn't pick up a pulse.
Probably offed himself.
I should have known that coward would buckle at the first sign of trouble.
Grape.
Go on.
Why must you always look so bloody miserable? [EERIE RUSHING] Oh, much better.
[LAUGHS] You know, I don't understand why you don't just kill the Midnighters.
They're only gonna be a thorn in your side.
- Trust me.
- Mm.
Because they'll be helpful for phase two.
"Phase two"? You didn't think I was going to stop at Midnight, did you? [LAUGHING] No, love.
Texas and this whole sad excuse of a country is only just the beginning.
So world domination? - Yeah, something like that.
- [GIGGLES] But first, we're going to need a witch army, and we're going to build it using the unlikeliest of allies.
[FOREBODING MUSIC] [DOOR OPENS] I didn't want to drug you.
You just gave me no choice.
[CHUCKLES] Oh, demon ash.
Such a clever way to sedate an angel, don't you think? Well, look at it on the bright side: At least now you don't have to figure out what to do with Chuy's remains.
[GROANING] Oh, Joe.
You were such a good angel.
[CHUCKLES] You served your god for many millennia, and now, the one time you need him most, he is nowhere to be found.
If God really cared about His precious angels, would He let this happen to you? [GROANS] If you pledge your loyalty to me, I would never desert you.
I would love you unconditionally.
I can make all your pain and suffering and guilt go away.
[GROANS] Would you like that? I take that as a "yes.
" [GROANS] [MUFFLED HOLLERING] Captives are to speak only when spoken to.
Do not attempt to escape.
Do not throw food at the guards.
Witch genocide? Pretty much.
Patience said with all the light witches gone, there'll be no one strong enough to stop her and Theophilus from taking over the world.
Do not damage or deface property, and do not insult the Queen.
First step to doing that is killing all the Delilahs? They're not killing us.
- Addie, you okay? - No.
They're carving out our butterflies and taking our souls.
Converting you to dark witches.
That's how they're building the witch army.
- We need to stop them.
- Well, how? They're everywhere and we're trapped in here.
Not for long.
The guards at bath duty were more interested in their edible arrangements.
All right, I'll sneak out, make sure the coast is clear.
[SIGHS] [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] Don't die.
[GASPS] Joe.
Are you okay? [GASPS] [GRUNTING] [DRILL WHIRRING] [SCREAMS, GAGS] You know, I don't have to torture you.
You could learn to listen.
Obey.
Make Midnight great again.
[SPITS] You're going to pay for that.
[COUGHS, GASPS] [GASPING] - Sister, stop.
- [GROANS] Don't torture her.
- Just kill her, already.
- [SCOFFS] You and Fiji both.
I broke the angel.
Surely I can break a mere mortal.
Eye on the prize, my love.
Focus your energy on building the army.
Now that we're together, nothing can stop us.
It's real bad.
[FOREBODING MUSIC] How bad is it? Nuclear.
Midnight's still chock full of witches, twins got their powers back, and Joe's working for 'em.
- What are you talking about? - Looks like a spell.
He's some sort of dark angel.
Sorry, Manfred.
Plan didn't work.
Creek died because of me.
This is my town.
It's my family.
I won't let anyone else die.
Wait, wait, wait.
There there might be another way.
Please.
I should take it.
[STAMMERING] I-I'd have the power to cast a spell that makes me look just like you, and that way, if Patience If she catches me trying to get to that painting she she'll cut off my head instead.
Yeah, I can't let you do that.
No, wait No, you don't get it.
Only your body is strong enough to survive the ritual, so if Patience If she attaches Theophilus' head to my body, well, then, maybe, if we're lucky, it'll be rejected and all those monster powers, they'll just be wasted.
Giving us a better shot at taking out Patience.
Yeah, it's a it's a built-in safety net if our plan fails.
How do you know it'll work? I don't, but it's worth a try.
- You know that means - No, I know.
And if I hadn't helped Patience collect all those vials, none of this would be happening.
Manfred, I-I don't have a family.
I don't have anyone.
But you do, and you have an obligation to stay alive for them.
So if anyone else should have to die, it should be me.
I was wrong about you.
Oh, I know.
[LAUGHS] [EERIE RUSHING] [GASPS SOFTLY] I knew it was a Hail Mary.
There was always a chance that Kai's body would be strong enough, but now we're worse off than when we started and Kai died for nothing.
[SIGHS] Not nothing.
He died a hero.
[TENSE MUSIC] - Where are you going? - Back to Midnight.
No, hey, hey that's suicide.
My friends need me.
Thanks for taking me in.
All right, so what's your plan once you get there? Figure out another way to free Delilah.
I mean, she stopped the twins once before, but there's nothing she can do trapped inside that painting.
I'm coming with.
Thought you said it was suicide.
Yeah, well, I wouldn't be alive if it weren't for Joe.
I know he wants nothing to do with me right now but I owe a debt to Midnight all the same.
Come on.
So I'm not here for sex? Nope.
Netflix and chill.
Even dark witches need their downtime.
Well, come on.
Hi, Gary.
I'm here to see Rebecca.
She's not expecting me, but I thought Feel good about what you did? You happy being Patience's bitch? Shh.
"Gypsy" is on.
Don't you feel any remorse for what you did? Turning on your friends.
Destroying your town.
I mean, guilt's a useless emotion.
Now, rub my calves.
[SIGHS] [GRUNTS] - I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry too.
This isn't you, Feej.
This isn't the woman I used to know.
The woman who loved her friends like family.
[GLOOMY MUSIC] The woman who would never turn her back on a good fight.
The woman who was willing to sacrifice her soul to save my life.
And we can get there again.
Yeah? But hey, hey.
Hey.
You have to come back to me.
You're my soul mate.
[HYSTERICAL LAUGHTER] [DARK MUSIC] You thought that would work? Ooh, you're dumber than I thought.
Move.
[SIGHS] [SCREAMING] [SCREAMING CONTINUES] - Oh.
- [ALL CHUCKLING] - Mm.
- See? - Conversion therapy does work.
- [LAUGHS] Maybe we should take more cues from the church.
[LAUGHS] [COUGHING] Darling, what's the matter? [SPITS] What the bloody hell? Oh, don't worry, my my love.
The 21st century has something called "dental hygiene.
" [LAUGHS] [WOMEN LAUGHING] Manfred's body was supposed to be the perfect vessel.
You didn't do the wrong binding spell, did you? Of course not, and I used your grimoire.
I'm sure it's nothing.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] It's all right.
It's all right.
- [SHUSHING] - [GROANING] [DOOR OPENS] My brother is sick.
- Heal him.
- No.
I want to see my wife.
I'm the one making the demands.
You don't have a choice.
[TENSE MUSIC] [GRUNTS] Give my brother your blood or I'll stake you and take it myself.
Only if I can see Olivia.
I need to know she's okay.
Fine.
If it'll shut you up.
You heal my brother and I'll give you two minutes with your precious Olivia.
- [GRUNTS] - All right.
Open wide, my darling.
[GROANS] Oh, rejoice.
My dear brother, you are healed.
- [SIGHS] - [GROANS] I did what you asked.
Now let me see my wife.
Not only can you see her, you can say good-bye.
They're gonna burn me at the stake tonight.
We've only got two minutes.
I'm gonna get you out of here.
How? - There's witches everywhere.
- I'll find a way.
You don't get it.
It's over.
Olivia, this isn't you.
You never give up without a fight.
There's nothing left to fight for.
The town I love doesn't exist anymore.
And I would rather die than live in Patience, Texas.
Don't say that.
We can take on anything.
Even this.
I'm sorry, Lem.
I love you.
But you have to learn to admit when you've lost.
Time's up.
- I love you.
- I love you.
[GATE ROLLING SHUT] God, that smells good.
- Is that - Pepperoni.
[OVERLAPPING CHATTER] Hey, Basil.
- Hey.
Hey.
- Hey! - What are you doing here? - Booboo, isn't it? - Bobo.
- Oh, right.
Because that makes more sense.
No, I'm here to see the show.
You know how I love me some drama.
Although I am disappointed.
I thought you Midnighters would put up more of a fight.
Then help us out.
I mean, you could do something, can't you? Shoot, you're a demigod.
[LAUGHS] I'm flattered, really, but, uh, even I'm not powerful enough to take on the incest twins.
Oh.
Then tip the scales.
You help us, oh, we will give you a show to remember.
Fiji lost her soul.
You help us get it back, that should be a fair fight.
I like the way you think, but there's a fixed number of souls on Earth.
I mean, I can't go around creating new ones out of thin air.
But I could steal one.
Soul for a soul.
It's just the way the cheese melts.
- Then you take mine.
- Oh, that's cute.
Very "knight in shining Henley.
" But I'm afraid that's not how it works.
I'd have to take one from someone you've never met.
Total stranger.
- Don't do it.
- Who invited Gladys Kravitz? Do not negotiate with the pizza boy.
It's a trick.
He's literally a trickster.
I'm serious, Bobo, if you make a deal with him, one way or another, it's gonna come back to haunt you.
Everyone, outside.
You change your mind, order our Margherita pizza Extra basil.
- [KEYS JINGLING] - [DOOR OPENING] [DARK MUSIC] [EERIE CHORAL MUSIC] Followers.
Friends.
Foes.
Tonight, you will witness what happens to those who are not loyal to their new King and Queen.
- Not my queen.
- Manfred? How are you alive? You got the wrong body, bitch.
[GASPING] - [GRUNTS] - What is this? - [YELPS] - Why can't we move? - Brick dust.
- [GASPS] Evil can't cross it.
Go! Run! Go! We're gonna get y'all out of here.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] Begone! - BOTH: No! - [GROANS] No! Theo, no, no, no! - Get the van.
- [WHIMPERS] Do something! Damn it! Fiji, don't.
Fiji, stop! [GASPING, PANTING] [GROANING, PANTING] Olivia, no! [GASPING] [SHRIEKING] - [GRUNTING] - [SHRIEKING] Lem, do something! You have to learn to admit when you've lost.
[TENSE MUSIC] [WHISPERING] I'm not giving up.
There is a way out.
[GROWLS] [NECK CRUNCHES] [HISSES] [YELPS, MOANS] [HISSES] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [TIRES SQUEALING] Get in! Nice work.
How'd you get past Joe? Iron works on him now that he's dark.
Hurry up, let's go.
If Manfred is alive, then whose body is this? - [GROANS] - [SIGHS] Kai Oh, my God.
Fiji was right.
Kai is dead, but by trying to thwart me.
And now it might be too late to do the spell again! Not to worry, darling.
Maybe it doesn't matter whose body I have.
You said Kai was powerful.
[TENSE MUSIC] I'm sure his body will do just fine.
Really, I'm feeling better already.
Good.
Oh.
[BREATHING SHAKILY] [GASPS] [HEAVY BREATHING] [SINISTER MUSIC] [YELPS] Oh [HISSING] - Theophilus isn't well.
- How do you know? When Patience fed him my blood - [HISSING] - She didn't know we'd forge a psychic connection.
I can tell he's weak and afraid.
Then this is our chance to strike.
- [HISSING, GROWLING] - We've gotta get Delilah out of the painting.
[GROWLS] You'll never defeat her, you idiots! That spell's too strong, you're never gonna break it! [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] Is it working? [GROANS] No.
Whatever spell is on this painting, it's way too powerful.
I need help from another witch.
[GROWLS] Me? You want me to help you? [LAUGHING] [GROWLING] [FURIOUS GROWLING] Hello, I'd like to order a Margherita pizza.
Extra basil.
Seriously? [GROWLING, HISSES] How's that for 30 minutes or less? [EERIE MUSIC] Peeky-boo.
Dumpster fire, hi.
What do we have here? Oh, pointy.
I'm ready to make a deal.
Steal Fiji a soul as long as it's someone we never met.
Swear on my immortal life.
Yeah.
Pleasure doing business.
[GASPS] [HOPEFUL MUSIC] Bobo? What just happened? You came back to me.
I can't even look at you guys.
What I did [WEEPING] What I put you through There aren't enough ways to say sorry.
Feej, we get it.
No good deed [SIGHS] You tried saving Bobo.
And you turned into a huge dick.
- [SOBBING] - I've been there.
We all have.
And there'll be plenty of time for apologies, but right now, what we need is your help, okay? [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] Do you know the "Intus" incantation? I-I do.
Then let's jailbreak us a witch.
[BOTH SPEAKING IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [ELECTRICITY CRACKLING] It's working.
It's working! BOTH: [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [GASPING, GRUNTING] [SINISTER MUSIC] [GROANING] [PANTING] Your stupid spell's not gonna work.
You had one shot and you blew it.
Well, you're dead either way.
[GROANING] [HOLLERS] [DEEP RUMBLING] [BOTH HOLLER] [BOTH PANTING] You have got to be kidding me! Hello, Hypacia.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] Looks like things are finally coming to a head.
Joe! [LAUGHS, GROWLS] [PANTING] Joe! Joe, help me! Please! [GRUNTS] - [YELLS] - [GRUNTS] [YELPS] Fiji, look out! [STRANGLED BREATHING] [SINISTER MUSIC] No! No! [HOLLERS] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] Trapped in a painting with only possum to eat.
Being hunted day and night for 800 years! You put me through literal hell! [WAILS] You want to talk about hell? Try smuggling a head in a cage through TSA! [YELPS] [BOTH HOLLERING] - [YELPS] - Give me my body! [ALL HOLLERING, GRUNTING] [STRAINING] - [GROANS] - [HOLLERS] [GRUNTING] [HOLLERS] [GRUNTS] [PANTING] No! [ROARING] - I know you're in there, Joe! - [SHRIEKING] No! - [WAILING] - Go, all right? - This is between me and Joe.
- [GROWLING] [SHRIEKING] [SOBBING] [FOREBODING MUSIC] [GASPS] [GULPS] [SHRIEKS] Jesus.
She's absorbing the powers.
[HOLLERS] [GASPING] Seventy times seven beasts.
[DARK MUSIC] - O - M - G.
- [GASPS] [HOLLERS] [GROWLS, GRUNTS] [HISSES] [GRUNTS] Delilah! [SHRIEKING] - [GRUNTS] - She's too strong.
Delilah.
[SHRIEKING] Kai Kai, if you're still in there, now's the time to help.
- [GRUNTING] - [SHRIEKING] - [GROWLING] - I love you, Joe! You have to believe that.
You know what it's like to have to kill someone that you love.
Don't you dare make me have to do that to you.
[SNARLING] [RASPY INHALE] [GROWLS] [GRUNTING] [RASPY INHALE] [GASPS, GROANS] [GROANS] [GROANING] No, no, no.
[RASPY EXHALE] - No! - [RASPY EXHALE] [WHIMPERS] [WEEPING] Into the woods I cast thee for all eternity.
[WAILING] [RASPY EXHALE] [EERIE WHISPERING] [PANTING] Thank you.
Be at peace, brother.
[SOLEMN MUSIC] [PEPPY MUSIC PLAYING OVER SPEAKERS] [INDISTINCT CHATTER] - Hi.
- Look at them.
One day they're enslaved by dark witches and the next they're digging in to country fried steak like nothing happened.
Amnesia spell.
- You're welcome.
- [LAUGHS] Dinner is served.
Oh.
First cartoon saloon, now home-cooking.
- Thank you.
- [LAUGHS] - Manny.
- Looks good.
You're gonna own this town.
Oh, well, that's the plan.
Thinking about calling it - Bobo, Texas.
- [ALL GROAN] - Way too soon.
- [LAUGHING] Is Delilah gonna be joining us? No, she left this morning.
She's got some butterflies to catch.
To Delilah.
And to, um To all our friends who don't have the luxury of being here.
Yeah.
[FOOTSTEPS SCUFFING] [TENSE MUSIC] [HOPEFUL MUSIC] Welcome to Midnight.
Ready for bed? Not even close.
[SIGHS] It's all so overwhelming.
Like, day is night, night is day, and I could eat an entire cow.
[LAUGHS] Alive.
I know it's not easy, but I can show you a way to live peacefully till you manage the hunger.
The blood lust.
[TENDER MUSIC] You know, I never thought I would say this, but Eternity doesn't scare me anymore.
So, um no regrets? For the first time in my life none.
All the time [KNOCKING ON DOOR] Hey.
Just checking in.
See how you're holding up.
You going somewhere? Yeah, um, there's something I gotta do.
[SIGHS] I killed Addie.
When an angel kills an innocent, it violates a cardinal rule of heaven.
Look, you were under Patience's spell.
- You didn't have a choice.
- There's always a choice.
So now I have to go redeem myself in the eyes of God.
What what do you have to do? I don't know.
It's not up to me.
While I'm gone, I need you to watch over Midnight.
I won't be around patrolling.
- Joe, uh, I don't - [SIGHS] You can.
You saved this town twice now, Manfred.
You're its protector.
[MAN SINGING] Hi.
What's that smile? We're expecting.
- You're kidding.
- No.
Oh, baby.
- [TEARFUL LAUGHTER] - Oh, Feej.
This is the most magical thing that's ever happened to us.
[BOTH LAUGHING] - And that's saying a lot.
- Yeah, I know.
I can't believe it.
There's a little someone living inside of me.
I know we've never met him or her yet, but I am already in love.
[LAUGHS] I'm ready to make a deal.
Steal Fiji's soul as long as it's from someone we've never met.
[SINISTER MUSIC] [KNOCKING ON DOOR] [KNOCKING ON WINDOW] [GROANS] [KNOCKING ON WALL] [KNOCKING ON WINDOW] [GRUNTS] [FOREBODING MUSIC] Grandma? Is is this a dream? I-I'm not imagining you again, am I? No.
This time, I'm real.
It was a bitch crossing over, but I had to come warn you.
[METAL SCRAPING] You're really in trouble now, Manny.
[APPROACHING FOOTSTEPS]
