He could just be a junkie looking for a place to sleep.
Franklin, he was on the other side.
What? No, no.
That's not where I found him.
- You you had a lot to drink - I know what I saw.
Well, that's just not possible.
Well, he's here, isn't he? We don't know who this guy is, how he got down there.
He could be dangerous.
Oh, come on, Franklin.
Look at him.
- He can't even stand up.
- He's lying there, covered in somebody else's blood.
How do you know that? Because I can't find a wound.
Oh, don't.
- Don't answer it.
- Well, it's probably the police.
I called 'em.
Oh, my God, Franklin, - why would you do that? - Well, all I said was - I I saw somebody outside.
- What if they go down there? Well, Irene - What are we supposed to do? - We have to tell them - that it was all a misunderstanding.
- We can't just leave this guy lying Hey.
Hi, Tommy.
We're fine.
Can't believe they sent the chief out for this.
No, I was just down on Mill Road when I, uh when I heard the call.
So, where's the guy? Uh, the-the guy just-just ran off as soon as I approached him.
Which way did he run? Uh, north-ish.
North-ish? I should, uh I should come check the house.
- Just to be safe, you know? - Why? No one broke in.
Better to be safe than sorry.
- Ma'am? - Yeah.
After you.
It's been so long since I've been here.
- Really looks the same.
- Well, we're not much for change, Thomas.
My parents, they won't stop moving.
They're in, um, Florida now.
Yeah? Man.
I watched my first R-rated movie in that room with Mike.
Um The Fog.
Scared the bejesus out of me.
How's, uh how's Denise doing these days? - She's good.
She's, um - Yeah? getting her MBA.
- 22 years old.
- Really? She's 24, Franklin.
Time flies, huh? She was always such a brainiac, that kid.
Uh, Mike would I know he'd be real proud.
- You checked back here? - I did, yeah.
Nobody, uh nobody in the shed, and nothing's missing.
May I speak with you privately, please? Yeah.
Yeah, come on.
Is, uh something going on here? It's just Franklin hasn't been himself lately.
He's he's confused.
And he started seeing things.
I looked out the window the same time he did.
There was no one there.
I'm so sorry that we've wasted your time.
There is no need to apologize.
I'm I'm glad there's nobody creeping around.
But, um God, I hate to hear that about Mr.
Okay, well, I'm gonna head out.
Franklin, I'll I'll let you know if we find the guy, 'kay? Thanks.
Thanks for coming by, Tom.
What'd you say to him? I said I couldn't stand for anyone to go into Michael's room.
Even him.
Good morning.

Good morning, Argentina Okay.

Is something bothering you? Did something happen? You're always putting things off to the last minute.
Hey, Toni.
I love you.
Love you too.
Hi Toni.
Hi Matias, how are you? What are you drawing? It's nothing.
Just stupid stuff.
Well, if it's stupid, why do you spend so much time doing it? Always drawing.
Leave her alone.
She doesn't want to show you.
Don't pay attention to him.
Can I ask you something? Yes.
All of it.
- Try it.

Damn! I know you said it was far away but this is way out here Does your mom know you're out this late, Toni? Shut up, asshole.
Pick you up in an hour, loverboy.
I wasn't sure you'd come.
So this is where you live.
This is close enough.
Look at this place.
I know it's weird.
But my family has been here for like hundreds of years.
My mom refuses to leave.
Okay, you saw it.
What's this? Oh.
It's nothing.
Matias Holy shit.
Who has a church in their backyard? Can you stop that, please? Please, let me see.
Don't you want to sit with me? Er Sure.
Toni I have to tell you Am I doing it wrong? It was a dare.
A dare? The guys said they'd give me four thousand pesos if I went inside.
You know: the haunted house.
I'm sorry.
What? Everyone has heard the stories about your grandpa.
Is this where he did his cult stuff? I thought you liked me Hey we can split the money.
What are you doing in here?!? - Nothing.
- What are you doing in here?!? Nothing! Get out! Get the fuck out of here.
Now! And you! Go to your room! You're ruining my life! Just an old field pack.
You can find those at any army surplus store.
I told you, the guy's just a just a drifter.
He didn't have any I.
, no wallet on him.
He's out there wandering around.
He sees the house and the shed.
Oh, look, there's a place to sleep.
He just stumbled across it by accident.
That's it.
- What is that? - I don't know.
That sounds promising.
Probably stole those.
Yeah, like he knocked over a museum or something.
- Oh, come on, Franklin.
- Well, it's not any more crazy than what you're thinking, and I know what you're thinking.
Really? What am I thinking? You said you found him over there but, Irene, you saw what happened with the mice.
If he was over there with no kind of space suit or anything I don't know.
To me, that's not a human.
That's some kind of extra Oh, Lord.
Come on now.
You're in no shape to be out of bed.
Come on.
Back you go.
Just Boy, he's shaking like a leaf.
Oh, he's burning up.
We got to call an ambulance.
How would we explain it? How we gonna explain a dead guy in our house? - Franklin - Well, I'm sorry, Irene, but there's a limit.
I mean, we got to do something.
Look at him.
Oh, last year, when I when I was sick, I was just like this.
Mareese said it was a virus, and she prescribed Oh, what was it? Oh, God, what did she prescribe? - Tamiflu.
- Tamiflu.
See, I don't forget everything.
It was Tamiflu.
We're gonna fix you right up.
I don't know if I can do it.
Oh, be confident.
It's just a little white lie.
Plus, Warren's always at the register.
Well, yeah, what if he starts asking questions? He won't.
It's just flu medicine for a sick, old lady.
My wife has the flu.
Just need more of this 'cause Irene has the flu.
I believe in you, Franklin.
Well, that makes one of us.
Now, if anything happens, call me, okay? Don't go in there.

My name is Byron Albemarle.
I'm running for town council - Congratulations.

I see potential for change in Farnsworth, okay? I can be that change.
You sound a bit big for your britches.
What party did you say? I'm a proud independent, see? I'm not in a party.

Is-is it that hard to s Franklin, hey.
- I just need a - Not now.
You know, what is the problem? I've been nothing but a friendly neighbor to you.
I said no.
But why? It's nothing personal, Byron.
I-I just don't like you.
Old-timer's cold, huh? Just get out of here.
We're getting you medicine, but, in the meantime, I brought you something that will make you feel better.
Let me hold Just take a sip.
I know it tastes like dishwater, but I promise it works.
Just take one more sip.
Oh, there you go.
There you go.
Lay back.
Just rest.
When I was little, my grandmother, Bitsy, would make this for me.
She, uh, called it "the brew," and I hated it.
Bitsy was right, though.
It does make you feel better.
I promise.
I have your book.
Would you like for me to read it to you? Let's see.
"Day, for which Dantes had so eagerly and impatiently waited with open eyes, again dawned.
With the first light, Dantes resumed his search.
Again, he climbed the rocky height he had ascended the previous evening, and strained his view to catch every peculiarity of the landscape " Amen.
Toni? Toni! Toni.
Where are you going? To the movies.
With a knapsack? Don't be mad at me anymore.
Can we please do a reset? I know it's hard.
Living how we do.
By ourselves, in the middle of nowhere.
Especially at your age.
It's a sacrifice I know.
But hey.
God takes note.
This isn't about God.
It's about me having no friends.
About having to live in a stupid house and look after a boring old chapel.
That's what God wants? Why? I made a promise.
As did grandpa.
And his father.
And so on.
I can't.
And I don't want to go back on that promise.
A promise to do what? I didn't make a promise.
I don't want to be a prisoner to that house.
When I was your age, grandpa Epi told me something I didn't understand until later.
He told me.
There is no greater gift in life than having a purpose.
Is that why he went to jail? Because he had a purpose? You didn't need to say that.
Being a Calderon means you're destined for a higher purpose.
I know, Mom, I know.
Shh! What does that even mean? When you're older you'll see.
I'm fifteen.
Our ancestors probably were married by now.
Tell me the truth.
I'm done with the rules.
Everyone in our family we are the guardians of something very special.
And you will find out at the right moment.
It's God's will.
You sound crazy, you know that? Let's go.
We have to go! Where am I? You're in Farnsworth, Illinois.
I'm Irene York, and this is my home.
You're safe here.
What's your name? Uh Jude.
Where are you from, Jude? Uh Actually, I'm not sure.
Um I remember walking, uh, somewhere cold.
There were mountains, and then it started to rain.
And then, I I think I fell.
Everything just went black, and then somebody was carrying me.
That was my husband, Franklin.
Do you know how you got here? No.
No, I can't remember.
Well it'll come back to you.
Memories usually do.
Chicago's about an hour away from here.
Have you ever been there? I don't think so.
Oh! You did it.
Oh, I'm so proud of you.
Everything is fine.
Franklin, this is Jude.
Take this.
It'll help.
Jude Jude was just telling me that Hey.
Are you okay? Yeah.
I'm just just a little woozy.
Sweetheart, you're-you're pale as a ghost.
Now, have you had anything to eat today? I still have Come on, come on.
Let's get a little something in you.
Sorry about this, Jude.
Long time no see.
What you got there? Hot off the press.
Huh? Designed by the extremely talented Jeanine Albemarle.
Huh? Wow.
Look at that.
You ready to see these all over town? You got all the signatures? Wow, you've even got Franklin to sign.
Just one more John Hancock, and I'm official.
Is the pause for dramatic effect, or ? Wish you luck.
Also, uh, there was a police car outside the Yorks' house this morning.
There was? What happened? I called Mrs.
Siebert down the block, and, um, she heard that it was a prowler.
They didn't catch the guy, though.
- Hmm.
- Hmm.
You were out pretty early today.
I was picking up the signs.
Come on.
You know it wasn't me, right? I'm not some Peeping Tom.
That's not what I said.
I'm gonna get the rest of the signs out of the truck.
So, let's say you're the chief of marketing for a Fortune 500 company, and one morning your CFO pokes her head into your office and says, "Hey, hate to drop this on you, but we're gonna have to make some cuts, company-wide.
And, next quarter, we are gonna be slashing your budget by 20%.
But we still need you to keep building brand awareness.
We need you to maintain that click-through rate.
We need you to do all of those things and hold the current revenue at what it is - Hey.
- but with way less resources at your disposal.
" Of course, your first thought is, "Oh, crap.
This is an impossible ask.
" But is it really? - I was not falling asleep.
- You would've nodded off in the next two minutes, I guarantee it.
I was up late last night.
Yesterday was a little draining.
Oh, yeah? Everything all right? I don't really want to get into it.
I had to go see my dad's parents.
- Are they okay? - Yeah, they're fine.
Just getting older, you know.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, my mom's folks - Mm-hmm.
a couple years back, got real bad.
Oh, no.
Yeah, my grandma, - on Thanksgiving - Mm-hmm.
She, uh she peed in the dishwasher.
Yeah, which, it sounds funny, but it was awful.
Oh, my God, that's so sad.
Shouldn't your dad be dealing with this? Oh, my dad, well, he's He's he's really busy.
He travels so much for work that he can't even make it out here.
- Oh, yeah? What's he do? - Yeah.
He's a consultant.
- Really? - Mm-hmm.
- Like McKinsey? - Oh, no.
No, no, nothing that fancy.
He's got his own firm.
They focus mainly on non-profits.
You guys close? Yeah.
Yeah, we stay connected.
Not a lot of kids would drop everything like that to help out their grandparents.
Well, you know, family.
You need to eat, sweetheart.
- You're not eating.
- I'm not hungry.
Well, you're not gonna get any stronger sitting there looking at it.
Irene, this guy is trouble any way you slice it.
If he's telling the truth, well, then, we-we basically kidnapped him.
And he needs help from professionals, not us.
And if he's lying, well, that's worse.
Does it disturb you at all that the most logical explanation for all this is that he's some kind of alien? He's not an alien, Franklin.
Well, either way, he turned up here covered in somebody else's blood, I mean, and you roll out the red carpet, making him nice cups of tea and giving him clean sheets, and we should be thinking about how to get rid of him.
It's dangerous having him here, especially now.
And would you please eat some of that goddang sandwich? What do you mean, "especially now"? When were you gonna tell me what Dr.
Mareese said? Yeah.
They put me on the phone with her when I was at the pharmacy.
What did she tell you? Enough.
I didn't want to worry you, Franklin.
So, so, you were just gonna do nothing? Hope for the best? We need to be taking care of you, - not him.
- You are taking care of me.
This is taking care of me.
And maybe Maybe this is what we've been waiting for.
This? How can you even say that? I need to see where all this leads, Franklin, and I want you there with me.
I'll do whatever the doctor tells me.
The-the exercises, the-the treatments.
I'll even eat.
Stay in the truck.
I'm armed! Put your arms up.
I'm serious.
I will shoot you.
Ad majorem Dei gloriam.
Ad majorem Dei gloriam.
Ad majorem mundi sine peccatum.
It's been a while.
Look how grown-up she is now.
- Are you training her? - Why are you here? Are you okay? Who is he? Yes, I'm okay.
Stay there.
It's good.
Needs more salt, though.
Relax, Stella.
Please, sit.
I'm glad to see you still have a gun.
You'll be needing that.
Well, it's been a long day.
I think we could all use a good night's sleep.
There's food here for you in case you get hungry in the night, and I left you a fresh pair of pajamas.
Oh, and, uh, take another one of these.
This will help.
Have a good night, Jude.
We'll be right upstairs if you need us.
Thank you, Irene.
You go on ahead, sweetheart.
I'll be up in a minute.
Just gonna have a little chat with Jude.
Are you feeling better? Irene tells me you don't remember much.
That must not feel so great.
I don't know if she mentioned it, but when we found you in the backyard, you were covered in blood.
Somebody else's, must have been.
Do you remember anything about that? Uh, no.
I-I don't remember anything.
This was our son's room.
He died a little over 20 years ago.
Time does not take that pain away.
And Irene has never really She's a smart woman.
Smartest person I've ever met, maybe.
But she's headstrong.
Always thinks that she knows best.
But nobody's right every time.
I'm just gonna come out and say it, Jude.
I don't trust you.
And I sure as hell don't want you here.
But Irene's got it in her head that you're special.
She-she needs you to be.
So, for her, I'm gonna let you stay.
For a bit.
But if you ever do anything that puts her in the tiniest little bit of danger you'll regret it.
Can you remember that? Yeah.
All right, then.
Good talk.
Good night.
Well, this is me.
Thanks for dinner.
Yeah, course.
Hey, if you don't want to go home yet, I live right around the corner.
I make a mean cup of chamomile tea.
Cliff, I-I have to tell you something.
Oh, you are dating someone.
N no.
Um - All that stuff about my family earlier? - Yeah.
About my dad and how close we are? It was a lie.
My dad, he he killed himself when I was five years old.
I-It's hard for me to talk about.
Denise, that's I'm so sorry.
I I-I should probably go.
Hey, there.
Hey, there.
What you doing? Where'd that little fucker go? - You curse too much.
- So? You curse so much I start to do it, and I end up saying the f-word in front of my students.
So cut it.
All right.
Where'd that little fadoodle go, then? - Ugh.
Never mind, that is worse.
- Uh-huh.
Ah! Mr.
Groth told me that he's never seen someone take to carpentry so quickly.
Granted, he's not upping my wage.
What? Franklin, I'm pregnant.
I, um I went to the doctor last week.
He called earlier with the results.
Forget about this fucking cabinet.
- We're gonna be parents.
- Be careful.
- Be careful.
See? - Oh.
That's why you got to be careful.
