Scream (2015) s03e04 Episode Script

Ports in the Storm

- MAN: Please, please.
- I thought it was me you want? MAN OVER PHONE: What I want is to find out what happened on that Halloween night.
- DEION: I left my twin brother to die.
- Help me! [PANTS.]
Come on, we both know what you really want from me.
- Kym, don't start, please.
- Right, listen to your gay BFF.
BFF! KYM: The gay is always silent.
I wanna know the truth about what happened.
He's right here where I buried him.
Man, a fool in a mask is running around killing people! 'Cause of decisions me and you made.
- LIV: Dad? Stay away from Liv if you know what's good for you.
- No.
- No.
- Manny! No! That's a lovely hymn, but I don't really think Manny would be into that.
You think the choir can sing something a little more Alicia Keys-y? WOMAN: I'll take a look.
After the mass, we'll head to the cemetery for the Rite of Committal.
- Excuse me.
- Yeah.
Is that what he's wearing? We picked out his best suit.
What about the shoes? He hardly ever wore those.
That's because he didn't wanna scuff them.
They were his favorites.
- I'm not sure it's appropriate.
- [SIGHS.]
Okay, then what about this? Georgia Tech colors.
He sent out his application last week.
He was so nervous.
I'm sorry.
I'll get you a glass of water.
Let me do that.
Can you take this to your aunt? [GAME CONSOLE BEEPING.]
WOMAN: Gracias.
How you holding up? A Catholic mass? A stuffy suit? This is all wrong.
His family's doing their best.
Manny's been a latchkey kid since grade school.
But sure, now they're here for him.
Now that he's gone.
Everybody grieves in their own way, Kym.
We just gotta let them do this the way they want.
But what about Manny? What about what Manny wants? They're pretty, huh? Until they wither and die.
Then they're just - gone.
- Hey, hey.
Come here.
Everything will be okay.
You don't know that.
Whatever it takes, I'll keep you safe.
I'mma do it.
But from who? I still feel like it has to be one of us that's doing this.
That's still just a theory.
Come on, we gotta head back soon before we're late for practice.
KYM: I'm really so glad you guys came.
Would have meant a lot to Manny.
I think I needed it, too.
Manny was one of us.
We ain't gonna forget him.
I was expecting the killer to show up and try to scare us.
Maybe they did.
I'm sure whoever it is is watching us and enjoying it.
They're probably closer than we think.
Liv, now ain't the time.
Liv's right.
What's that? "Friends don't matter if you're dead, so pick one of them to die instead.
" There's more on the back.
"You have until 7:00 p.
No cops.
Snitches die!" How long have you had this? It came with some white lilies right before y'all showed up.
- But why not tell us earlier? - Because today is Manny's day.
I don't wanna ruin that.
The killer wants us to choose who dies? He's trying to turn us against each other, but we can't let that happen.
We gotta stick together, y'all.
- Not if it's one of us doing this.
- One of us? I know you're not suggesting that I could've killed Manny.
It's just a theory.
You seem to have a lot of theories lately, Liv.
Do you think the killer could've done something like slash Kym's tire? Because Amir told me you did that.
Hold up.
You did that? I was trying to protect you guys.
Deion and I didn't want anyone following us.
I am so sorry.
You could've just told us to hang back.
Instead, you left us stranded like a bunch of sitting ducks for that psycho? Now my best friend is dead because of you.
And what, you were trying to help protect us? Look, fighting ain't gonna bring Manny back, okay? Liv didn't know what the killer was planning, Kym.
Knew enough to get the hell out of Dodge before Hookman got gutted.
You said you couldn't find her, right, Deion? Because I was looking for Amir.
He disappeared.
Because I was trying to help Beth, and Kym and Manny, too.
Don't try to pin this on me.
Ghostface almost got Beth and I when we were at the school to trap Shane.
And you know who wasn't there that night? Liv.
I was at home, okay? My dad wouldn't let me out of the house.
Your cop dad.
I'm guessing he doesn't know his baby girl's being stalked by a serial killer, or else the whole department would be up the killer's ass by now.
Oh, do any of your parents know? Kym tried to go to the police.
It didn't get us anywhere.
And until they get their asses in gear, we're gonna have to handle this by ourselves.
I can't think of a way to square this without putting anybody at risk, so everybody text my name.
- Deion, no, that - No, look Ghostface has been after me since the jump.
- This is between me and him.
- Or her.
- It could be a her, too, right? - Totally.
Screw this.
I got more important things to worry about, like Manny.
Y'all do what y'all want.
I'm not playing this stupid game.
Hey, Kym, come on.
Maybe Kym's right.
Maybe we shouldn't play.
If Ghostface is trying to split us up, then that's how we fight back.
No one text anything.
We all good with that? Cool.
And that's how we gonna beat him.
I can't believe they think it's me.
No, they just scared.
And I am, too.
I'm pretty sure any one of those guys would sell me out to save their own asses.
Then maybe you should just talk to your dad about all this.
- I can't.
- Why not? Even if he did believe me, we don't have any more evidence to give him than Kym did.
The only thing he'd be able to do is keep me from seeing any of you again.
From seeing you again.
You don't think I'm doing this, do you? No, no, no.
- No, no, no.
Look, look, look.
- Please tell me you don't.
I don't.
All right? I don't think that about you or anybody else in our group, no matter how much Ghostface wants me to think that.
- I trust you.
- Okay.
- You think we can trust the others? - Hell, no.
- Do you? - I don't know.
I want to.
I mean like, if no one texts a name, won't the killer be pissed? I don't know.
I'm still trying to figure out the killer's game.
But if he or she thinks that one of us is gonna give up a name, maybe there's something to it.
Well, I promise I won't sell you out.
You're never gonna survive this thing by looking out for me.
You need to worry about yourself.
But I'm into you, Beth.
Thought I made that clear out in the boonies.
You're not the worst person in the world, either.
But that mushy stuff is a perfect distraction for a killer that's just waiting for us to drop our guard.
So maybe it's better if you just stay away until all this is over.
Yellow 20! Yellow 20, hut! [GRUNTING.]
That's what I'm talking about, Elliot.
That's what I'm talking about.
Whoo, yeah, Deion took them by surprise by actually showing up.
You know what'd take me by surprise? If you ran those chicken legs like you run your mouth.
Go again.
Look, Blue China 41, left set.
Hawkins, eyes up.
Ball's coming your way.
I don't want your pity play.
- Yo, what's up with you, man? - HAWKINS: Man, what's up with you? You've been skipping practices while we all here working.
I know, and I'm sorry.
I had some personal stuff to deal with that I had to take care of, but I'm here now, all in.
- We're a team, right? - TEAMMATES: Yeah.
DEION: You, too, man.
On three.
One, two, three! ALL: Reapers! MAN: Draw, draw! DEION: What's up with that? - MAN: Hold it! - What? Elliot, where the hell are you going, man? - MAN 2: Come on! - GRIFFIN: Elliot! Don't worry about the scoreboard.
Get your ass back here.
D! - Hello? - KYM: Hey, Deion.
- Hey, did you get my text? - Yeah, I saw.
Someone was picked.
- Yeah, did you do it? - Hell, no! I told you I wasn't playing.
Okay, look, I'm just trying to figure out what happened.
Trying to figure out if I texted Liv's name, you mean.
- She make you call and ask me? - Wha No! If you're asking anybody questions, it should be your girl.
Okay? I mean, what you really know about her anyway? Besides the fact you wanna get all up on that? All right, Kym, look, that ain't got nothing to do with it.
No judgment.
I'm just saying maybe Liv's clouding yours.
Look, where you at, huh? Somewhere safe? Yeah.
I'm with Manny's family.
What about you? I'm just keeping my head down for now.
As long as you're staying far away from Liv.
Just hit me up if anything happens, all right? Mm-hmm.
So, was it her? - She said she didn't do it.
- Do you believe her? Yeah.
Then that only leaves two people.
I don't know about you, but I'd feel a lot safer if I was with someone I trusted.
I would, but I I gotta do some stuff.
- Yeah.
- Well, you know where I'm at.
Thank you for the ride.
Uh, text me when you get home.
Uh hi.
I'm looking for Beth.
Oh, wow, Beth, you look awesome.
I just got out of the shower.
- And normally I look? - Different.
Also awesome.
You You have a hearse in your driveway.
This is a funeral home, and it's my home, too.
That actually explains a lot.
What are you doing here? Someone got picked.
Yeah, I saw.
So, I was thinking we could look out for each other? [SIGHS.]
Did what I tell you go right through your donut hole and out the other side? It's not a good idea.
Neither is going home.
Or to work or school.
Nowhere is safe.
So, if it's all the same, I'd rather take my chances with you.
- Hey.
- What's up? Can we talk in private? Don't worry about Rick.
Rick cool.
Ain't you, Rick? So what you need? Why don't you tell me what's going on? And I can handle it.
I don't want you getting mixed up in it.
If you mixed up in it, then I'm mixed up in it.
You said I'm the only brother you got, right? So you can keep struggling by yourself or you can let me help.
You're watching horror movies at a time like this? I'm looking for clues, patterns.
Because we have to figure out what's next, Amir.
Find the next plot twist so we can stay one step ahead.
Well, if any of that involves me staying away from you, you can forget it.
Look I don't want anything bad to happen to you because of me.
We all have roles to play in this.
You might be the nice guy, but I'm the bitch.
Good for a few quips, maybe a boob flash, and then I'm the one that everybody wants to see die.
And they cheer when it happens, like when that wheelchair dude gets carved up in Texas Chainsaw.
But that won't happen to me because you won't let it.
I mean, you know everything about this stuff.
I act like I do.
Trying to be all cool and collected, like watching these movies means I know exactly what's gonna happen next, but this is real life.
And the truth is I'm just as lost and terrified as you are.
It's okay.
Just because I don't know what's coming next doesn't mean I'm not gonna fight back.
You got an extra one for me? Keep it.
You're right.
Nowhere is safe.
Ghostface could've got you working your shift alone.
I got ahead of him on that one.
Or he could be lying in wait for Kym outside Manny's place.
What about Liv? I mean, she's the new girl.
She's obsessed with Deion.
And, I mean, she's been MIA any time I've seen the killer.
You really think Liv's Ghostface? She said it was one of us, didn't she? But if she's the killer, she wouldn't hurt Deion, right? She seems so into him.
That's what makes him the easiest target of all.
You see, Deion thinks he's the hero of this story, so all you gotta do is tug at his heartstrings.
Tell him somebody's in danger, a damsel in distress who needs his help.
Or so he thinks.
- What are you doing here? - Taking your advice.
Decided that I'd feel much safer if I was with somebody that I trusted.
She'd lull him into a false sense of security with some "woe is me" sob story.
My dad has always been an intense guy, but it's gotten so much worse since he and my mom split.
Then she'd compliment him, feed his ego, make him feel wanted.
I'm glad you came.
I know I said we can't trust anyone, but I've always felt safe with you.
Well, good.
I want you to feel safe with me.
- Then, when his guard is down - She stabs him in the heart.
When his guard is down, she [R&B MUSIC PLAYING.]
You sure you wanna do this now? I'm tired of feeling scared.
I just wanna feel normal, just for five minutes.
Trust me, I can give you more than five minutes.
- What, just like that? - Why not? It's just sex.
She has to get him when he's at his most vulnerable before she can go in for the kill.
BETH: And you wanna know the worst part about it all? He never sees it coming.
It's not what I normally listen to, but - it's pretty cool.
- Yeah.
Now listen to this one.
Was that the boogeyman? - [SCOFFS.]
- MAN: I do believe it was.
This is awesome.
It sounds like it's from a soundtrack or something.
Well, I sampled some audio from some of those horror movies you mentioned.
- Wait, you You made this? - And the first one.
Other stuff, too, but, yeah, this one was just for you.
I call it "Beth metal.
" Your stuff's really good.
Does everybody know you make music? No.
I guess I was afraid of what people would think.
But then Ghostface showed up, and suddenly what people thought of me wasn't so scary anymore.
Not when I could die at any time.
Well, that was always technically true.
I guess what I'm trying to say is if this is all the life I have left to live, why not go out with a bang? [MUSIC STOPS.]
Dance with me.
Five months and a hundred blocks.
I used to clown you for not thinking big enough.
Now it seems so far away.
I didn't forget about what we talked about.
I hang out at your spot pouring out some nasty-ass kombucha for the homie.
I know you deserve something bigger and better than this.
But mostly you deserve a better friend than me.
I was supposed to have your back, ride or die.
I shouldn't have left you and you shouldn't have came after me.
If I could change what I did, I would.
But you wouldn't because that's the kind of friend you were.
You never turned your back on your friends, no matter what they I did.
Even now you'd be telling me to give those fools another chance instead of hiding up here.
Are you laughing at me? - Come here.
Just Just relax.
- Fine.
You got me.
I can't dance.
Point for the nerd.
How many points until I level up? Hmm.
Feels like you already have.
Uh, wait.
Maybe we shouldn't do this.
- I'm sorry if I was - No.
It's It's not that.
It's just having sex with a killer on the loose.
- Wait.
We're gonna have sex? - Yeah.
I mean, I just don't wanna get busy, and then get, like, an arrow to the neck or You'll be safe tonight, I promise.
I hope you're this weird in bed.
Why would you bring this here? I brought it so I can protect us.
What you doing going through my bag? I tripped over it and nearly broke my toe.
That's when I found it.
Well, I found this.
Suddenly it's not so cool for people to go through your stuff.
- It was a vigil, so I sent flowers.
- Yeah, white lilies? Kym said that the note Ghostface sent came with white lilies.
I would never send that note.
You can't think I'm the killer.
I don't know what to think no more.
But I know somebody just stabbed me in the back.
If I'm going down, I'm doing it Manny style.
Hawkins? You're Ghostface? - Man, what the hell is a Ghostface? - Never mind.
What are you doing here? The same thing as you, I'm guessing.
Manuel showed you his spot? I didn't know y'all was cool like that.
Yeah, nobody did.
Kind of kept it between us, you know? That's where we'll keep it.
He was a good dude.
The best.
Uh, if you wanna I only brought one cup, but I'll take the bottle.
I'm good.
I mean I won't be good for a while, but Yeah, I feel you.
- - Damn.
You good? I'd stay, but I got friends I gotta deal with.
Hey, Kym.
He really did love you, you know.
Why would someone pick you? Why I don't know.
- Just give me the gun so I can go.
- What? No.
Ghostface is out there looking for you.
You're safer here.
- I don't know about that.
- Deion.
Neither one of us is safe if I'm here, so I'm just gonna go.
I can't let you do that.
What you gonna do to stop me? - Dad! - Liv! Come on! No! - Dad? - Just let me go! - What's going on? - He has a gun.
What? Hands on the desk, Elliot.
- Now! - You have no idea - what's going on, okay? - Shut up.
Liv, please tell him.
How long this gonna take? I left my bag at your place, man.
It's got my phone, my wallet, my keys.
You won't need that stuff where we're going.
Isn't the precinct that way? Somebody texted Deion's name.
- Did it say who it was? - No.
- You think it was Kym or Liv? - I don't know.
Whoever it was, it's pretty cowardly to do it behind everyone's back like that.
Maybe it was just self-preservation.
Oh, my God.
It was you.
Let's go.
- You know where we are? - Bear Park.
Pretty nice during the day, but not so much at night, huh? You're young, Deion.
You might not see yet that a lot of people only act like they are who they say they are.
Nobody wants to show you their dark side.
Sometimes you don't see it till it's too late.
What are you gonna do? What I should do is write you up for having that gun, but I'm just trying to look out for you.
What? Why are we here? I wanna talk to you about Liv.
I thought you was gonna kill me.
For messing around with my daughter? - You said to stay away from her.
- Not for her sake.
For yours.
What do you mean? Her mom and I got divorced earlier this year.
Liv took it pretty hard.
Hard like how? Acting out in destructive ways.
Things that made me think she's maybe a little unstable.
You seen anything like that from her? Maybe.
Can we head back now? You see something? Stay here.
Trust me.
You do not wanna do that.
I'll be right back.
Look, I-I wouldn't do that if I were you.
It's damn dark out there.
- So you didn't see anybody? - Nothing.
Let him go! [DEION PANTING.]
Oh, shit.
Dude, hey, hey.
Hey, wake up.
Wake up.
Hey, wake Shit.
Hello? I I need help.
There's a officer down, Officer Reynolds.
He's still breathing, but he's hurt bad.
MAN: We received another call about this incident.
Units are headed to your location.
Who is this? - Hello? You there? Repeat.
AMIR: Beth, hold up.
I can explain.
I don't get why you would text Deion's name and then why you would say that you hadn't.
I don't know.
I was I was scared, okay? For you, for both of us.
Me? You did this for me? I was trying to protect you.
I thought if I texted someone's name, we'd both be safe.
And I only texted Deion's name because he said we should.
Amir, this is exactly why I said nobody needs to have my back.
- Did you get this text, too? - We got it all wrong.
- How? - Ghostface said he wanted us to pick somebody to die, right? But he didn't say he was gonna kill whoever was chosen.
"Snitches die.
" - I'm a snitch.
- Relax.
Nobody knows you're here, right? So maybe you're safe.
- It's Liv.
- Don't answer.
LIV: Amir, are you there? We need to talk.
Liv? Liv, where you at? [CELL PHONE RINGING.]
LIV: Amir, listen to me.
You have to tell me where you are.
I'm, uh at my house.
I was just at your house.
Your parents said you're at the library, which is closed.
What were you doing at my house? I think Beth texted Deion's name to the killer.
Beth wouldn't do that.
I-I mean, she didn't.
How do you know? - Because it was me.
- What? But I think Deion's okay because I got another text from the killer saying "Snitches die.
" - Oh, my God, Amir, where are you? - I don't wanna tell.
What? Why? You don't seriously think I'm the killer, - do you? - I don't know.
I can call my dad's precinct for help.
Are you with Beth? Amir? Hello? [CELL PHONE CLICKS.]
We need to go, now.
- BETH: Shh.
- No one is out there.
- What? No.
- No, I just saw him.
- Try to calm down.
Amir, I'm telling you we're in serious trouble here.
AMIR: Go, go.
This is my fault.
You need to go get help.
What? No.
I'm not leaving you here.
Quick, while he's distracted.
Go! Go! Beth, wait up! [AMIR GASPING, GRUNTING.]
Oh, gosh.
- Deion! You're okay.
- [GASPS.]
Kym! When I seen that text, I didn't know what to think.
Kym, what are you doing here? I came to see if anyone knew what the hell was going on.
I only called your phone about a hundred times.
Liv, Beth, and Amir, too, and not one of y'all answered y'all phone.
Beth's house just happened to be on the way.
Ghostface was just here.
- All right? You gotta go.
- No.
I'm done leaving my friends when they need me.
You're stuck with me now.
You stay close.
This way.
- Where's that damn gun? - What gun? Deion, I thought you were with my dad.
- About that, we need to talk.
- What are you guys all doing here? - The killer was here.
- I know.
Amir sent me to get help, so I ran and got my neighbors to call the cops.
Where is he? - Oh, God.
Amir? - Beth, wait.
Stay right here.
I'll be right back to take everybody's statement.
At least the police finally on the case.
About time things came to light.
Yeah, maybe Liv can shine some light on this.
- Where did you get that? - Same as Ghostface.
Same as anyone with a private number.
You didn't tell my dad about this, did you? No, I didn't.
But he did tell me how you've been acting crazy right before Ghostface jumped him.
What? My dad was attacked? - Why didn't you tell me? - I tried to tell you.
I came back to your house, but you wasn't even there.
I need to go.
The killer got to Liv's dad? [STUTTERS.]
Liv's dad said she was crazy? Yeah.
Found a receipt at her house, too, for those flowers that you got, Kym, but she say she didn't write the note.
Of course the killer would say that to throw us off their trail.
You really think she'd do her own dad like that? She said they wasn't getting along.
Liv was the only one that knew I was with her dad before he got stabbed.
- Deion Elliot, correct? - Yeah.
What's going on? Where's Liv? She's being transported to the hospital to go see her father.
What I need you to do is drop that bag and unzip your jacket.
What's up? Miss Reynolds said that you knew about her father being attacked at Bear Park tonight.
So? That incident wasn't made public knowledge.
Your jacket.
- Freeze! Get down! - Get down! Get down! Get down! - DEION: Look, it's not - Look It's not, it's not - Get down! Get Get It's not what it looks like.
I promise it's not Put your hands behind your back.
Hey, is he under arrest? [CAR ENGINE STARTS.]
- [GASPS.]
- Good news, Mr.
- Good morning, gangster.
San Diego State's head coach got in town late last night.
He's not interested in recruiting you anymore.
- We know who's behind that mask.
Ironic, isn't it? That you're so sure you figured out who I am.
Come with me, you'll get the answers you need.
