Night Sky (2022) s01e08 Episode Script


1 Well, it was good to have the house full of people yesterday.
Hon, please, you got to eat something.
Or at least have some tea.
What, did I steep it too long? No.
I just I can't.
You got to get some sleep.
Come here.
Good morning.
How long have you been up? Oh, just for a bit.
Oh, it's so good to be back in our bed.
Turns out the back seat of my car is not that comfortable.
You know, that's the longest we've been apart in 17 years? Since that teacher's conference in St.
- You got me a hat.
- Yeah.
Why don't you ever wear it? I don't think I know where it is.
I missed you.
I missed you, too.
Do you ever miss when things were more normal? Comparatively.
Yes, I do.
I'm sorry, I-I got to go, uh, finish something in the shop.
Byron, please say something, buddy.
Byron, can you hear me? Byron? Bryon? Franklin.
- Have you seen Byron? - No.
He didn't come home last night.
I-I don't know.
No call or anything.
I, um He said that the two of you were working on some kind of project or something? Well, we-we were, yeah, but, uh, w-we finished that up.
Um, I'll sure let you know if I hear from him.
I'm sure he'll be back soon.
I'm telling you, it was him.
How do you know? What did you do with it? Nick has good things to say about you, Toni.
Maybe this equipment will be yours one day.
I think I like Illinois.
Very, uh, quaint and quiet.
I like quiet.
This is it.
Park over there.
So, you got it started? All by yourself? Yeah, I've worked with tools my whole life.
I'm pretty handy.
Why did you turn it off in the first place, Jude? And without telling us? Franklin had every right to try to fix it.
You shouldn't have done that.
It's dangerous.
Yeah, I know.
Irene, please don't be upset.
I'm sorry.
It's okay, Jude.
I know you're leaving.
I found something in Michigan.
It's gonna lead me to my father.
Please don't try to talk me out of it.
I won't.
You have to follow your own path.
Excuse me, while I go put together something for you to take.
You're not much of a packer.
I knew you'd end up hurting her.
I was just trying to protect you.
Let me ask you something, and please tell me the truth.
What's out there, on that planet? Nothing.
That's what I thought.
I'd offer to give you a ride to the bus station, but I guess that's not how you're leaving, is it? No.
No, it's not.
But there's something I need to do before I go.
Sit tight, nature calls.
Mom, he left.
Let's go now.
We can't.
Why not? He killed that woman! What's wrong with you? If you won't, I will.
That's enough, Toni! We can't because they'll find us.
They'll just send a different version of me and you.
Just start the car, please.
I lied to you.
I told you your legacy was a blessing.
I wanted to protect you, Toni.
What do you have to do? I will find the Apostate.
And take care of it.
Then we'll be done.
You mean kill him? If I don't, they'll take you away.
What? Take me where? Don't worry.
Because that won't happen.
Dead birds.
Dead birds.
What are you talking about? A chamber nearby.
Stella, they have been looking for another one for decades.
- I don't care.
- Ah, but you will.
Ah Look.
Stella, finish the job.
I'll locate the chamber, and Toni will help.
Come on, Toni.
Stay calm.
Everything is going to be fine.
Come on, Toni.
Your mother has important work to complete.
Hey! - If you lay a finger on her, I swear - Stella.
What kind of man do you take me for? Come on, Toni.
A couple of old people.
What do you think about that? I guess they won't put up much of a fight.
Just like that woman.
I took no joy in that.
My job is to protect our people.
And so is yours.
Things have been kept from you too long.
It stops today.
In fact, I'm going to insist you have your Perdisco right away, as soon as this is over.
You are so close to God, and you don't even realize it.
- So, no more secrets? - No.
Not from me.
Who is Caleb, then? He's your father.
And I'll make sure you meet him.
It's time you finally visit Caerul.
See? I'm not so bad.
What do you got there? Oh, just vitamins.
Want to give me a handful? I need all the help I can get.
Especially now that we're losing our caretaker.
Yeah, I'm-I'm sorry he's going.
I mean, I'm glad, but I'm-I'm sorry you're hurt.
Well - it's for the best.
- Really? What about what you've been waiting for, fate and all that? I'm tired of fate.
Sweetheart, I got to I got to tell you something.
There's somebody in our backyard.
What? Hello, young lady.
Is everything okay? I I'm-I'm sorry.
H-He made me.
Wha Let's go inside.
- Hey, can we talk? - Nope.
I know Irene told you.
Yeah, she showed me some thing buried in the backyard.
- I know it's hard to believe.
- That is an understatement.
A magic door, another planet, and you.
- Like, what even are you? - I'm exactly what I told you I was.
Really? Because you failed to mention that you were, what, an alien? I'm human, just like you.
Okay, well, I'm gonna get out of here.
Um, you can keep playing house with my grandparents.
I am so over it.
Thank you for driving all night to Michigan, for teaching me about karaoke, and, uh, for the shots.
Katie paid for the shots.
Well, thank her for me.

Grandpa! Nana! Hurry up, we have to There's no point hiding! I will find you.
Honey roasted.
Who came up with that? They deserve a medal.
Want some? No? Oh.
Who's the truth teller among you? Please, let us go.
Where is it? Your granddaughter, right? It would be a shame if I had to kill her It's in the backyard under the shed.
Thank you.
That wasn't so hard.
Keep an eye on them, will you? Yes.
Nick was right about you, Toni.
You are going to be good at this.
So this is where you've been hiding.
Your name's Toni, isn't it? I'm Irene.
That's my husband Franklin, and this is Denise.
I'm-I'm sorry.
- I can't talk to you.
- Why? Because that man told you not to? I have to help him, my mom told me.
Your mom.
Where is she? She's with the apostate.
Oh, you-you mean Jude.
His name is Jude.
I know what you're doing.
He's a good person, Toni.
- My mom told me that Jude was violent.
- No.
Yes, that he was putting lots of people in danger, that we had to do this.
And what if your mom is wrong? Please, Toni.
Not a good idea.
If you are thinking of freeing them, that would be a mistake.
My mom told me we were doing the right thing.
God's work.
But I don't believe her or you.
- Go ahead.
They can't see you.
- Tying up old people, killing that woman That is wrong.
The world is not as black and white as you think.
You don't want me to kill him? Toni, is everything okay? There's been a change of plans.
Why don't you bring the boy back here? Are you sure? Yes.
Tell him we have the family, and if he doesn't want them hurt, he should give himself up.
Happy now? We have the old couple and the girl! If you want to keep them safe, all you have to do is show yourself! We've met before.
I doubt it.
No, I remember.
They brought you to meet my mother.
I was just a little boy.
You kneeled in front of her during the ceremony.
Afterwards, you cried.
Better not to speak.
I never really understood the Guardians.
All that sacrifice.
For what? To protect something that they'll never truly be a part of.
You turned your back on your family, your community and your faith.
I know what you've done.
I had no choice.
Neither do I now.
I don't know who you are or what you want but you don't need to threaten my family.
Well you threatened mine friend.
In ways you don't even understand.
Jude! It's good to see you again.
I always liked you.
Even when you were disobedient.
Then you go and do this.
Does she know you're here? Who do you think sent me? You're lying.
Stop! You think it's my fault these people have to go through this? No, it's not.
It's yours.
- I'm sorry.
- You had everything, but it wasn't enough.
You said you wouldn't kill him.
I'm not going to.
You are.
What better way to prove the Calderon family's loyalty, right, Stella? That's enough.
Not her.
- All right, okay.
- Mamá.
Get on with it, then.
Please, don't do this.
Quiet, darling.
Look away.
- Stella.
- Quiet! If you do this, she won't be your daughter anymore.
- Not like before.
- I said shut up! Stella! Complete the mission.
I'll do it.
¡Mamá! - The gun! - Hey! See, Toni, she is a killer.
It's in her blood.
Yours, too.
No more killing.
Are you okay? Are you okay? So where are you guys going? Far away.
- You sure you're gonna be okay with him? - Yes.
I'll deal with him.
It will be safer for everyone.
Trust me.
- ¿Mamá? - Mm-hmm? Mom, what is going to happen to the house? Can we ever go back to get our stuff? Honestly, I don't think so.
Whatever we left behind, Toni, can be replaced.
Mama, what is Caerul? Don't worry about that.
We're gonna be okay.
I promise.
You said they would keep looking for us.
But they'll stop.
Why? Because we have a bargaining chip now.
In case you get hungry.
Do you remember the first day I was sick in bed? - You fed me that stuff? - The Brew.
The Brew.
It was horrible.
I remember thinking to myself you must have been a good mother.
Did you, uh did you remember to take a sweater? - I want to come with you.
- What? Okay, face it, you've got some blind spots.
You got lost walking to a bar.
You can barely drive.
You got arrested.
Y-You need me.
Hang on now.
He - You got arrested? - Mm-hmm.
Uh, Denise, I-I don't I don't know about this.
Well, I do.
I know.
It's a terrible idea.
I can't go back to where I was, and I can't stay here in Farnsworth, either.
I've got to do something new, and what's more new than this? I gotta say, I was expecting to drive, or a flight.
This is a little weird.
Are we really okay with this? No, but what can we do? She's, uh, she's a grown woman.
She's also our granddaughter.
I know.
It's so hard.
But we used that thing over 800 times, and we're still standing.
- But standing.
- Yeah.
Well, that's new.
I, uh I found this in my father's book.
It's kind of like an address.
He left it for me.
So this should take us right to him.
He'll know what to do, how to keep us all safe.
But until then, please be careful.
And that-that thing you got can bring her right back here.
Yes? Yeah.
But just so you know, it-it resets after every trip.
So if you try to follow her, it would just take you back to well, you know where.
First sign of danger, you come right back here.
- Yeah.
- You promise? I promise.
Any harm comes to her, I swear to God You understand me? Yeah, of course.
I-I swear.
- I love you, sweetie.
- Love you, Grandpa.
- Bye, Grandma.
- I love you.
I love you, too, Grandma.
- Be careful.
- Okay.
- You ready? - Yeah.
Let's go before I change my mind.
Maybe we should stop coming down here so much.
I've been waiting for years to hear you say that.
But, sweetheart there's something I got to tell you.
So, what are we going to do? I don't know.
Can we go to Disneyland? Yes, we can.
Hold on! Mamá.
What's happening? I don't know! ¡Mamá! Oh! ¡Mamá! What happened? We got two people.
You're a guardian, aren't you? I was.
That's very interesting.
Mom! Well, hello, Cornelius.
Do you remember me? I never forget an apostate.
We're gonna have some fun, you and me.
Yes, we are.
Welcome to the fallen world.
Where are we? Bangkok.
I can't believe you never told me about this.
I'm shocked.
And I'm also very impressed.
Well, I figured if you knew about these suits, you'd use them.
- You know me well.
- Uh-huh.
Are you sure you want to do this? Do I want to? No.
I No, I don't, but Jeanine deserves an answer.
Byron's out there somewhere.
Alive or not.
I got to try to find him.
Please don't say goodbye or-or quote some beautiful poem.
I'm-I'm plenty nervous as it is.
I believe in you, Franklin.
I always have.
Do you mind fetching my hat for me? What do you see? Well, I see you.
Really? Hon? I found our coffee table.
Franklin, stop kidding around.
I'm not.
I'm gonna keep going.
What's that? Uh, you're breaking up.
Franklin? Franklin? Franklin? Can you hear me? - Irene? - Yes.
Yes, I can hear you.
Please, come back now, Franklin.
Something wrong with my my air I Just say something, honey.
Franklin? I love you.
