Put it away.
Put it away.
No! Put it away.
- Obé.
- Put it away.
Help! Death is only a beginning.
Obé! Obé.
Death is only a beginning.
Help! Obé.
Obé, it worked.
- Who are you talking to? - Obé.
There's nobody there, damn it! Come to me, Obé.
Nobody is there! Who are you talking to? Help! He's perfect.
If I sacrifice him in your name, will you give me what I want? What are you talking about? Stop! - Answer me, Obé.
- Stop! Answer me.
Kill him and I'll do it.
I get it.
I swear nobody at school will find out.
This will stay between us.
I swear to you.
Nobody will find out.
No! No! No! Father! Mother! Let me go home! I'm begging you! I'm begging you! You've never asked me where I am when I'm not with you.
I'm in a place that looks like your world but it's empty.
It's cold.
And I'm alone.
MISSING Is your wound getting better? That's it, we look alike.
Reda's the one who looked like you.
Don't worry, when he comes back, I'll teach him a lesson about life.
Then all three of us will look alike.
Hey, he'll come back.
Don't worry.
Look at me.
It's going to be okay.
It's going to be okay.
It's your friend.
Take the call.
- Yeah.
- It's Juliette.
Sorry to call like this, but something's going on with Victor.
I don't know what's wrong.
He won't talk to me.
- Why are you calling me? - So you'll come over! Damn it, Sofiane.
If my mom sees him like this, she'll send him back to the psychiatric hospital.
And last time he was like this, it was just before he did something really stupid.
Victor, what are you doing? You seemed okay last night.
What happened? I realized that it's all connected Can you guys leave? I can hear your thoughts and it's distracting me.
Cut it out.
Control yourself.
You want to go back to the hospital? Victor? Juliette? Are you coming to eat? Coming.
Get up.
You're gonna take a shower and you're gonna go downstairs.
Okay? You're not gonna do anything weird, okay? Mmm.
As usual, it's super good.
- Yeah, it really is, Laurent.
- Yeah.
- Water, anyone? - No, thanks.
Thank you.
Why all these lies? He mustn't know.
What am I doing here? I hope Audrey isn't mad because of yesterday.
They're going to lock him away.
He has to stop this.
It's dangerous.
Is something wrong, Victor? I'm just wondering how it's possible to have this many liars seated at one table.
- Yesterday, we went a little hard - For once, Sofiane, just shut up.
Victor, what is going on? Come on, Victor, let's get some rest.
Actually, you're glad I'm not doing well.
I get all the attention while you can do whatever you want.
If I was doing better, you'd be in deep shit.
Why are you saying that? - Victor, please.
- You're no better than she is.
You hate your life and, deep down, you think it's my fault.
Hey, Victor, you can't say things like that.
Why do you throw me into the arms of people who want to hurt me? What are you talking about? Audrey.
It wasn't enough to force me to go see her? You had to sleep with her, too? Stop it, Laurent.
Deep down, you knew.
But it was easier to close your eyes.
I know that all too well.
Everything stays bottled up.
No one ever says anything.
It's not my fault if I'm crazy.
Victor, come on.
Let's go talk.
Why are you even here? Huh? There's nothing left to take.
There's nothing left! - Calm down.
Come on.
- Let me go.
- Come on.
- Get the fuck off me.
- Come on! - Stop it! - Come on.
Come on.
- Damn it, let me go! Victor.
- Calm down, stop it! - Let me go! - Let me go! - Calm down! - Let me fucking go! - Get out! - Get out! - I'm sorry.
- Leave me alone! - Get out! - Leave me alone! - Stop it! Calm down, damn it.
- Please leave me alone.
- Calm down.
Calm down.
I'm here.
Time is running out.
- Obé - Grandma, calm down.
You have to protect the boys.
Otherwise, they'll be lost forever.
Yes, I'll take care of it, Grandma.
Okay? But now, I need you to rest, please.
You're too important.
Obé mustn't come near you.
We need to protect you.
In my notebook.
Banish him.
Banish him from the apartment.
Until the Désandans arrive.
The Désandans? You must banish him.
Is he feeling better? I hope so.
I'm going out.
Laurent is going out to look for your mother and your sister.
Last night, I was with Luisa.
I was scared, but it was nice.
Then I started seeing myself when I was little, and remembering things I'd forgotten.
I remember him now.
I liked him a lot.
He said I was quiet and hardworking.
Coming from him, those were the best qualities ever.
At the time, my mom wasn't doing so well.
He'd often bring me home in the evenings.
He did things to me that he shouldn't have done.
And I didn't defend myself.
What can I do? I want you to help me kill your brother's murderer.
What? The ones that hurt others, I want them to suffer.
I want them to die.
You're not in the right state of mind.
You need to talk to your mom.
The Sofiane who was this close to killing me on the roof, he's the one I need right now.
Not this one.
Not the one who accepts being a victim and who is afraid.
You're going to let him get away with it? You're going to let him do it again? I thought you loved your brother.
You're too much of a coward to avenge him.
- Or save what's left of him.
- You don't know what you are saying.
I know exactly what I'm saying.
You're a coward.
Victor, on my mother's life - And I'm the weak one? - What do you think? Huh? Of course I want him to die.
I wanna kill him with my bare hands.
But what do you want to do exactly? We don't know who he is.
We don't know anything.
You recognize them, right? I saw them in Laurine's mind, too.
She threw herself out of the window because she recognized them.
The killer was at her house.
We can find out who killed Reda.
But this time, we're going all the way.
- Hi.
- Victor, you've gotta go see Luisa.
Her grandma's in the hospital.
She had, like, an attack.
She's upstairs.
Hey, Victor! Hmm.
Go on.
We'll meet up later in the counselor's office.
Wait, Mélanie.
- Mélanie.
- Sofiane, I can't do this anymore.
But wait Shit.
Why is this so hard? I was an asshole with you.
I didn't respect you, when I respect you so much, you have no idea You think I don't want this.
But it's not that I don't want it.
It's that I don't know how to be that for you.
So don't give up on me.
Because Because, just don't.
Bye, Sofiane.
How is she? Why didn't you call me? I didn't know if after last night Luisa, it wasn't your fault.
I can't explain, but I swear it isn't you.
It was Obé who attacked my grandma.
She was trying to imprison him and he fought back.
Don't worry.
- It'll be over soon.
He'll never hurt anyone again.
- How? We're going to do what we have to do to make Obé disappear.
You'll do no such thing.
Do you still not get it, Victor? If you do anything to him, you'll die.
- It's the only way to make this stop.
- No, it isn't.
Come to my place tonight.
I know I can imprison Obé, and I know I can protect us.
You've got to stay out of this.
You think you can tell me what to do? I swear someday I'll explain everything.
How are you going to explain if you're not here, Victor? I almost lost my grandmother, and I don't want to lose you, too.
I'm sorry.
Do what you have to do.
I'll do the same.
Obé, we know you're here.
The three of us here.
- It feels like déjà vu.
- Shut up and listen.
We're going to find my brother's killer.
We're going to kill him for you.
But if you attack Luisa or her family again, we stop everything.
It's a deal.
I will stay quiet.
But it might be difficult for you to go as far as murder.
Especially for you, Sofiane.
Stop trying to screw with our heads.
Wait Didn't you tell him? What is he talking about? Don't make me read your mind, Sofiane.
I know someone who's been abusing his power This doesn't change anything.
Benjamin! Close the door.
We're going to go back inside Laurine's mind.
But this time, you're coming with me, because you're the only one she'll listen to.
I know how dangerous this is for you.
I won't do it.
- Don't make us force you.
- No.
You're always telling students that you're there for them.
Prove it.
I've never asked you for anything.
So you can't refuse.
Not after what you did to me and my family.
Come on.
Are you ready? Yeah.
Wake up.
Wake up! - Catch her! - Laurine! Laurine, stop it.
It's me.
Look at me.
I'm sorry.
I promised you I'd always be there for you.
- Forgive me.
- It isn't your fault.
Ask her who's behind the door.
Now! Laurine, do you know who's behind the door? Reassure her.
Tell her everything's going to be fine.
Nothing's going to happen to you.
I'm here.
Who's behind the door? My mother and a man.
I came home and saw his shoes.
The man who hurt me.
He's behind the door.
- No, stop! - Victor, stop! Stop, please! Stop! Victor! Laurine, tell us his name.
They all said I was crazy.
Laurine! Hervé.
His name is Hervé! I found him.
I know who he is.
Sofiane, I found him.
Are you okay? It's Hervé, one of Elizabeth's clients.
I saw him at Luisa's.
Do you know how to find him? Yeah.
Let's go.
I'm not going to let you risk your lives.
I would have liked to help Laurine.
She didn't deserve this.
Thank you for your help.
I'm sorry I've been such a bastard to you.
Are you okay? Is this a bad time? Victor and Sofiane have found out who killed Reda.
But they'll die before they get to him.
He's barricaded himself.
They're going to need your help to get in.
I know what you're trying to do.
It won't work.
I won't let you manipulate me, Obé.
If you don't help them, I'll use the last of my strength to kill your grandmother.
If they kill for you, what's awaiting them is worse than death.
They made their choice.
Now you have to make yours.
Save the only family you've got, or save a boy that doesn't love you enough to stay with you.
That son of a bitch is expecting us.
We have to get rid of them.
I don't know if I can do it.
We don't know how many there are inside the building.
What the hell is she doing here? Hi.
I'm here to see Hervé.
- Go ahead.
- Go ahead.
Why is she doing this? Luisa.
Come closer, my dear.
Why didn't Elizabeth protect me before? Huh? I was pretty generous with her, wasn't I? - She didn't know who wished to harm you.
- Ah.
As soon as she knew, she told me to come protect you.
With that? It's good that you're helping Grandma.
It's new blood.
A new generation.
Elizabeth is very powerful, but if she'd paid less attention to the rules, I wouldn't have had to take care of things myself.
Hmm? Outsourcing is a real problem.
Those guys outside? Utterly useless.
But I have to take what I can get to protect myself from those boys.
I'm almost finished.
I was very unlucky, Luisa, and I'm not just talking about my tumor.
Do you even realize? Laurine had to be the daughter of my mistress.
Then Reda rebelling, that idiot Ousmane bringing me the granddaughter of a voodoo priestess I do love teenagers, but now you all really want me dead.
I don't understand what you're talking about.
You do understand.
Sit down.
Sit down! And if it goes wrong you'll make a beautiful sacrifice to offer to Obé.
Hey! Don't come closer! Do it.
Be careful! Little bitch! Do you know what I'm going to do to you? These powers are really shitty.
Touch my neck.
What? Victor.
Go help Luisa.
Sofiane, stop it! Sofiane! Keep going, Sofiane! To the end! - Stop it! - Shut up if you care about your grandmother! - Sofiane, you're condemning Victor, too.
- Shut up! No, please, think of Victor.
All right.
We're all going to calm down, okay? Shh.
This sacrifice is for you.
- No! - No! No! You're the one who's going to finish the job.
Kill him! He deserves it! Stop! - Stop! - Make him pay! For you! No! For Sofiane and all the others! Victor, stop! No! No! Your grandmother is going to die! Because of you! Obé, stay here.
Obé, stay among the mortals.
Obé, stay here.
- Obé, stay among the mortals.
- What are you doing? Obé, stay among the mortals.
Obé, stay here.
Obé, stay here.
Stay among the mortals.
Obé, stay among us, among the mortals.
Obé, stay among us.
Stay among the mortals! It could have been so different.
We have to go.
Stop crying.
They're fine.
And Obé is no more.
You made mistakes and so did I.
But now we have to think of the future.
Nothing has changed for Sofiane and Victor.
If they keep using their powers, they will hurt themselves.
Can you do anything? I can't, but you can.
Can you come and join us, please? I'm going to ask you a question, and I want you to promise me you won't lie.
Do you believe that an invisible god gave you powers? Yes.
Do you need a hand? - Yeah.
- Okay.
I'm sorry.
We didn't make a place for you here.
Even though you tried.
No matter what happens with your mother I'll be there for you.
Because we don't always choose who we become attached to, but it's often people who, deep down, are like us.
Here you go.
Thank you, my dear.
Are you sure you don't want me to stay with you? No, my sweetie.
You can go.
I'm not here for anyone.
I'm sorry, Grandma isn't seeing anyone today.
Even old friends? Let him in, Luisa.
You were supposed to train her, since she is our only hope.
Our very reason for being is to prevent the catastrophe predicted by the ancients.
Obé making a pact with those two boys is only the first sign.
We'll have to take care of them.
But can we still count on you? And most importantly will we be able to count on Luisa? If there's one thing I'm proud of, it's that she does as she pleases.
- So - You can count on me.
No, Luisa.
We'll talk about it later.
We don't need to.
I'm ready.
Do you know who I am, young lady? You're a Désandan.
Do you know the difficulty of the challenges that await you if you choose to follow our path? No, but I know I can handle it.
Very well.
You will be initiated according to the rules.
And you will become one of us.
No way.
They can't send you back to the hospital, bro.
You're not crazy, God damn it! I don't give a shit.
Come on, let's do something.
We still have our powers and my arm doesn't hurt anymore.
What would we do? We can erase their memories.
It's just the two of us.
We're not afraid anymore, remember? So you want to go back? I don't want to go back.
But I think I think I still have things to deal with there.
I'm leaving tonight, after class.
But before that, I'm going to need you.
- I love that subject.
- I really love it, too.
- I'll meet up with you later? - Go on.
I'm going to spend a little time at the hospital.
This is my last day.
But I'll come back.
I know you feel like everyone abandons you, but not me.
You're saying that you're leaving but you're not abandoning me? No.
Neither are you.
You can't abandon me either.
Because I know we can be happy together.
Before I go I want to show you how I wanted it to be with us.
- I'm coming.
- Okay.
- Are you okay? - Mmm-hmm.
I had a question.
If you two did it in your head, are you still a virgin? Right, steer clear of the weirdos, okay? Victor.
We've got to go.
- Chill for two seconds.
- I'm coming.
This time I'm really going to say what I've got to say.
With me, you don't need to.
You're going to miss the movie if you don't go now.
Are you sure you don't want to come? Nah.
- Are you sure? - Yeah, it's all good.
Leave it, I'll take care of it.
You're going to clean up? So what? Fine, make fun of me.
I won't do it.
- Have everything? - We're good to go.
Let's go.
I'm coming, chill.
