- [gasps.]
I Is that one of them? - [crashing draws nearer.]
- I'll protect you.
Be brave like Dad said.
[thump outside door.]
- [growling.]
- [thump.]
[growling and thumping continue.]
- [snarling.]
- [gasps.]
[creature screeches.]
Damn it! [roaring.]
- [screeches.]
- [gasps.]
It's okay.
I'm sorry, boys, this should never have happened.
We thought it was sedated.
What is it? A Himalayan Troglodyte.
Alpha male, very aggressive.
We've told you about the monsters we hunt, - but I'd hoped you'd be older before - [Samuel.]
What's done is done.
We can't coddle them forever.
Freddie, are you all right? - It's okay.
It's over.
- [Samuel.]
Well done, Seth.
You're definitely an Allen, my boy.
[doorbell rings.]
[knocking at door.]
Locals again.
I'll dispose of this.
I'll be right back.
[doorbell rings.]
[banging at door.]
[cicadas chirping.]
Evening, Mrs.
Not again.
Just doin' my job.
You know when neighbors complain of - [radio chatter.]
- "Loud banging sound of breaking glass wild animals on the loose" all heard coming from your property.
I assure you, everything is fine.
Are you okay? - Are you safe? - We're putting in new floors, and I foolishly thought I could do it myself.
I'll apologize to the neighbors for the noise.
- I completely lost track of time.
- If you need anything Thank you, Sheriff Lang.
Have a good night.
- [car door closes.]
- [sighs.]
[radio chatter.]
[burst of machine gunfire.]
[gunfire continues.]
[speaking monster language.]
[speaking monster language.]
What the fuck? [whirring.]
[speaking monster language.]
[radio response in monster language.]
Stay with me, Gina.
[ringing tone.]
- [Fred.]
Hey! - Okay.
Fuck! Okay, more powerful than we thought.
She just took out Gina.
Forced her to shoot herself.
How the hell did Gina get into this? She connected us to the killings.
I need to get her to ahospital.
The sensors aren't picking up the warlock, she must be outside the perimeter.
Are the kids home? Yeah, Viv's in her room, Geoff's on his way home.
Okay, there's more.
There was a TAC team of five soldiers.
They're the only reason we're still alive.
- Presidio? - No, they weren't human.
It was a mix of species speaking a weird language.
They were working together.
They don't do that.
I know, but I saw it myself.
They had assaultweapons, a grenade that had the warlock on the ropes Their attack seemed to weaken her.
You take care of Gina, I'll take care of the warlock! Okay.
You heard.
Yeah, enough to know we're calling in reinforcements.
We can contain this ourselves.
You haven't done a great job so far.
Sensors must be malfunctioning.
I'll go outside and check on them.
By yourself? That's risky.
When Geoff gets home, put the house and the perimeter on lockdown.
- What if you're not home yet? - Oh, for fuck's sake, Mother.
Just this once, please trust me.
[soldier speaking monster language on radio.]
- [yells.]
- [grunts.]
- [beeping.]
- [gasps.]
[footsteps approaching.]
Stay here.
Hey, sweetheart.
Headed to the office? [sighs.]
Something's come up.
I need you to stay inside the house, listen to Grandma and do everything she says, no question.
What's going on? I need to contain a situation.
With a machine gun? [sighs.]
Oh, my God.
Look, I'm sorry, for a lot of stuff, but right now, I gotta go.
Okay? It's okay.
- Where's Mom? - She's busy too.
Oh, what, killing monsters? It's complicated.
Only if you keep lying to us! Honey! We'll talk.
Anything you want to know, I promise.
Have you seen your brother? He's not answering my texts.
Call him, tell him to get home now! [sighs.]
You know, the other night, when I was on the roof, you said that life was messy.
It didn't make sense.
This makes sense.
[phone buzzes.]
Oh, my God, it's Viv, again! Fuck, sis, get a life! Hey, douchebag, when you deign to check your messages, haul your ass home, shit's going down.
The worst.
[knock at door.]
Oh, shit! Just a minute! Okay.
Go! Okay, you need to stay really quiet again, okay? All right.
You got a boy in that closet? You know that's Geoff's style, not mine.
- Just so you know - Mm-hm? I always thought you should have been told the truth long ago.
There is a history All right? A legacy that runs through your veins.
Without us Allens, the world would be a much scarier place.
I get it.
We're heroes.
Honey I'm I'm just still, you know, processing.
It's a lot.
I was proud to serve in Presidio.
As are your parents.
As you and Geoff will be.
I hear you.
I just think I need some time.
Of course.
There's no rush.
Some day you'll understand that love takes many forms.
Your parents never wanted to hurt you.
They only wanted to protect you.
But, like it or not there are some things in this world that need killing.
And the sooner you understand that the better off you'll be.
[door closes.]
Let's get you cleaned up.
By the way, thank you for not freaking out when I told you about Your ghost whispering? [laughs.]
Ghost whispering? Yeah, okay, I guess.
I don't even know what to call it.
- Maybe your parents can help you - No! No, I can't be honest with them.
They are the worst hypocrites on the planet.
- It can't be that bad.
- Yeah, it can.
You know, I hate to say it, but, uh my folks are pretty cool.
Oh, yeah? [chuckles.]
So are you gonna tell them? What, about you? And you.
Uh It's okay.
In your own time.
No, you're right.
I can't avoid it forever.
But maybe I'll start with a baby step first.
Sounds good to me.
[fly buzzing.]
[soldier speaking monster language on radio.]
[flies buzzing.]
[radio message continues.]
[radio message continues.]
[Presidio AI.]
Jesus Christ.
Biometric grip and trigger.
Who the fuck are these people? [beeping.]
[woman on PA.]
Dr Tepper to X-ray.
Dr Tepper to X-ray.
BP 98.
All right.
We're prepping the OR.
Can you run an IV? [beeping.]
Multiple lacerations, lost a ton of blood.
Where the hell was he? [young Deloris.]
The woods behind Carson's Farm.
Jesus, what'd he run into? A pack of wolves? Book the OR.
We need to stop this bleeding right away.
Let's get the IV.
Get the doctor up here now.
[steady beep.]
He's crashing.
[woman 2.]
Code Blue, Room 305.
Code Blue.
Room 305.
Ma'am! - Ma'am! - These are the X-rays? - Let us through, please.
- Oh! Looks good.
We got 'em.
Come on.
Coming through.
Oh, Jesus Christ Look, I'm gonna stay here as long as I have to I'll try and find out what I can.
- Dr Brown to triage.
- And you guys just try to stay strong.
- [Chester.]
Hey, Fred.
- Hey! So here's the thing, I'm an asshole.
Not news, my friend.
I need a favor.
I I need you to keep it on the DL.
Can you do that? Well, I don't even know what it is, yet.
I'm sending you data I pulled from some incident samples.
Check your incoming.
Yeah, I see it.
I need a full spectrum analysis of everything.
Among other things, I'm dealing with a warlock.
I need to pinpoint what type it is.
Get me all the classification specifics you can.
And there's a good reason why all this is under Presidio's radar? Yeah, there is.
- And you're not gonna tell me? - [chuckles.]
You're right, I'm not.
You have a fucked-up concept of friendship.
All right.
I need to have the most straight fire, capital L-I-T look for Gate Night.
What do you think? Phil? Okay, what's going on with you? I just want you to know that I think you're the most beautiful person.
I find myself so fortunate to know the real you that we really really know each other.
Who would've thought that sharing crayons in kindergarten - would lead us to the friendship we have? - Okay, well, stop, I I need to break up with you, because I'm gay.
[phone buzzes.]
What? What could possibly [Viv.]
Dad wants you home, A- S-A-P.
Who cares what he wants? Something's going down.
Something bad.
Okay, so let Mater and Pater handle it.
Been doing so for the last two decades, right? So far, the world hasn't come to an end.
I was told to tell you and I did.
Do whatever the fuck you want.
- You always do, anyway.
- [door opens.]
Look, I'll be home soon, okay? So, how'd it go? She wasn't pissed at all.
She was more worried.
Worried? About what? About how her posse would react.
She doesn't want to ruin her image.
I can't imagine anyone being so self-centered.
Look, I know Maddie might not seem like it, but she does care about other people.
She's just in a bad place right now, which means she has conditions.
First, we're going to Gate Night together.
That's understandable.
It's only a couple days away.
Next? She's breaking up with me.
Okay, you know what? Fine.
If you're okay with that, then I'm okay with that.
- [sighs.]
- How are you feeling? - Better.
- Yeah? Yeah, I think I'm ready for the main event.
- Oh! - Let's do this! 24 hours, all I think about is winnin' Well, you've gotta make it move With the tools of the trade Emerging top at the rules of the game Wow! [Viv.]
This is gonna sting, okay? Just There you go.
[humming "You Are My Sunshine".]
My mom used to sing me that song whenever I got hurt.
Oh, God.
You are my sunshine My only sunshine You make me happy - When skies are gray - [whirring.]
You'll never know, dear How much I love you [sighs.]
Dr Brown to triage.
The nurse says she won't be out of surgery for another hour, so Thanks.
Um I'm gonna need you to come in.
I hate to do this especially right now, but you're the one who found her, so we need to get your statement.
Well, I I can't tell you anything more than you already know.
It's just protocol, you know? Yeah I I do.
Gina would want us to cross all the T's and dot all the I's.
- So, come on down, it'll be quick.
- Okay.
Oh! Manna from heaven! You're a life saver! Well, you've been working non-stop.
It must be nice to be on sabbatical, like some people we know, huh? Yeah, no kidding, but, you know, Fred and Deloris have been going full tilt for quite a while.
They deserve a break.
You know, recharge the old batteries.
I just hope he's not having second thoughts.
About what? Oh, shit.
I probably shouldn't have said anything.
Oh Too late.
Come on, don't leave me hangin'.
I heard that Fred was offered a seat on the Council.
Son of a bitch never said anything.
I don't think he's given his answer yet.
Well, you know, they're probably getting antsy with the whole family setting down roots for a change, probably just thinking things through.
Yeah, yeah, probably.
What's that? - [bleep.]
- New spike? No, it's these, uh yahoos in Jersey, they need help identifying the remains of something they just blew away.
You know, guys who shoot first, ask questions later [chuckles.]
- Do you need any help? - No.
It's okay, thanks.
Well, let me know if you change your mind.
- Yeah.
- [beeping and whirring.]
[door opens.]
So? It went better than I could have ever imagined.
I'm embarrassed that I thought that you know they wouldn't accept me for me.
I'm so proud of you.
Geoff Allen is an Allen.
He is not like the rest of his family.
We know what's best for you.
The mayoral election is less than two weeks.
If we align ourselves with the Allen family, I don't stand a chance.
You're not dating him but I am.
It doesn't matter.
It's about optics.
[Mrs Mishra.]
And what about you? You're about to become a Yalie next year.
You like boys, it doesn't matter, we love you for it.
It's just you deserve better than him.
You deserve better? What was I supposed to say? - You're choosing your parents over us? - No, I I didn't choose anything.
Look you've been out for as long as you can remember.
I've been out for a few hours, so forgive me if I need a fucking minute.
Are you pressing the pause button on us? Just until after the election.
- Look, I Geoff, my dad - I guess I was right! The world is messy.
It doesn't make any fucking sense.
Let's start with my name.
Let's figure this out.
[in monster language.]
Blue team, what's your position? [radio.]
Just acquired visual.
Sending you coordinates.
- We can take her.
- Do not engage.
I repeat Do not engage! [gunfire and screaming over radio.]
Are you sure you didn't see anybody else? We're really grasping at straws here.
No, I I found her alone, unconscious, and bleeding out.
Her gun was exactly where you found it.
I knew better than to touch her.
The only reason I moved her w was to, uh save her life.
All righty, then.
Um I'll go see if the ballistics report came back.
I I don't think that you shot her, it's just I I know you've got to cover your ass, I hear you.
I'll be back.
- [radio chatter.]
- [sighs.]
[loud heavy metal plays.]
Jesus Christ.
Sorry to keep you waiting.
Forensics came back.
Ballistics show the bullet came from Gina's gun and there were no other fingerprints, so You're free to go - but not before I get your Jane Hancock.
- Oh.
Thanks, Woody, I I appreciate it.
And if you hear anything about Gina I'll call you.
Okay Do you have a name? Okay, then, where are you from? No.
No, no.
Hey! Hey, wait! [gasping.]
Hey! Here? You're from here? You mean this house? What the fuck is that? [Presidio AI.]
Energy spike detected.
We're done here, Samuel.
[in monster language.]
She's taken out my entire team.
I'm all that's left.
I can't stop her without backup.
Negative, Team Leader.
Backup is unavailable.
[Presidio AI.]
Match found.
Hit me.
The dead vampire has been ID'd as Dylan Blake.
Dropped off our radar three years ago, but, insert drum roll here the DNA you scraped from under his claw is an exact match to the sample taken from the attack on the Boston Presidio site.
Were there trace amounts of primordial isotope in the air after the attack? Yeah.
What the fuck is goin' on? Shit! The warlock, she’s from Harlow House.
That That's not possible, they're all dead.
I gotta go! [phone buzzes.]
We’re in the clear.
Dee! You need to get back to the house.
It’s happening! The thing we feared the most! Our worst nightmare, right now! Right now! [Hannah.]
Chester! Still workin' away, huh? Yeah Yeah, it never ends, am I right? Why did you access data above your security clearance? Oh, that.
And why'd you share that information without authorization? Look, I I can explain everything.
We know you made an outside call.
Who'd you talk to? No one.
Is that your final answer? Do I get to phone a friend? I have a feeling you already did.
Geoff? Geoffrey, I need to speak with you! [sighs.]
Extra chewy.
No, thank you.
[phone buzzes.]
How about a cup of tea? Um Also a pass.
- All right, but I need to talk to you - I think Viv needs my help in her room.
Can you just hold that thought? You are never gonna believe the day I just had.
I get it.
The struggle is real.
No, I I was with this guy, all right? I'm not gonna tell you who, but we were in the greatest of places Like we have a connection, you know? - Other-worldly connection.
- Geoff And then, his parents had to go and ruin everything.
God, the mind boggles.
- Geoff, I - What? Shit! Geoff, meet my new friend.
[low rumbling.]
What the fuck? - [Maggie.]
Ohh - [exhales.]
[Maggie groans.]
Go, go, go, go! You can't go down there! Hey, Viv, who is this guy? Scans show the energy signature is on the second level.
- Okay.
- Come on.
It's not safe for you here, you have to go! Go! - [screams.]
- Oh, shit! Freeze! Don't move! [low rumbling.]
- [both groan.]
- [crunching.]
- [screams.]
Oh, my God! - God.
[Alice sighs.]
Okay [groans.]
Dee, where are you? Just pulling up.
[motorcycle approaching.]
[tires squealing.]
Geoff! Viv! Oh, God! Oh, God.
Geoff! Viv!
