Being Human

1 Previously on ‭Siren [TEACHER] What's going on? - I'm not sure.
- [GROWLING] Everyone, come with me.
It was her! She did it! I kill all.
On land.
In water.
All.
Kill the bad ones, not the good.
You choose human over me.
- Whoa! - Get down! Get down! They're everywhere! [SINGING SIREN SONG] - [HISSING] - [CALVIN] Chris! Man, wait! Aah! [GROANS] - Xan! - Dad! She's yours now, son.
[CALVIN] You really think that anyone is gonna believe that Aquaman hopped on board and stabbed our captain? Sean was tryin' to untangle a line, he got caught up, and he went overboard.
[XANDER] It was an accident.
He's lost at sea.
[SOMBER SONG PLAYING] Hey.
Did you talk to your dad? How'd it go? He says he's fine, but You don't believe him.
I'd just like to see his face, you know? How long's he gonna be gone? A day, maybe two.
My dad has his own way of dealing with loss.
- Always has.
- Mm-hmm.
These clothes? Why? Um this is a way people show their respect when someone dies.
I want to know.
What else do humans do? It depends.
Um When there's a body, some people might choose to bury that body in the ground, or they might cremate the body, which means to burn it.
Or, like my dad, he goes into nature to grieve.
Different people show grief in different ways.
It's complicated.
It especially complicated when there's no body.
This death my fault.
No.
That's not what I meant.
My sister, she tell me she will kill.
She killed your friend.
I put the North Star in danger, Ryn.
Me, not you.
I knew what your sister was capable of.
She's a predator.
An animal.
And I led Sean straight to his death.
I'm gonna have to meet you in the car.
[DOOR OPENS] [DOOR CLOSES] Does Ben think this of me? Ryn is animal? He just needs some time, that's all.
Come and find me Come and find me Rivers are - Tell me again.
- Ma, please.
Tell me again.
I need to hear.
Dad, he got caught on a net.
And he went for his knife, but he couldn't reach it in time.
Doesn't make any sense.
You father spent his life around those nets.
It was an accident.
Come and fall In love again for the first You father would want you to have this.
Come and fall In love again for the first time [PLACID HIGH-PITCHED CALLS] You weren't there.
You didn't see.
They attacked us, Maddie.
They tried to kill every one of us on that ship.
Ryn tried to kill me in the water.
In the water, Ryn is different.
That's exactly what I can't stop thinking about.
Is it really just the water? I mean, she killed Donnie.
Ben, she was defending herself.
What if she's more of an animal than we've been willing to admit? I don't believe Ryn is just an animal.
I believe Ryn has changed.
She's spent time with us.
She trusts us.
Most importantly, I believe Ryn is good.
[ELAINE] I remember when you two bought that boat.
[TED] We maxed out or credit cards, and I remember thinkin', "How the hell are we gonna pay for this thing?" And then you did.
And you handed your half over to Sean.
Yeah.
[TED EXHALES] You were good to him, you know.
["WEIGHT" BY LEE DEWYZE PLAYING] [PASTOR] Today we come together to honor the life of Captain Sean McClure.
Sean worked the waters off this town for over 30 years.
He married in this town.
Raised his son in this town.
Look around.
He made his lifelong friends right here in this town.
The weight of it all on your shoulders When tragedy strikes, it's hard to find our footing and make sense of life.
And as we search for answers in the days to come, be there for Patti, for Xander.
The Fisherman's Prayer.
"I pray that I may live to fish until my dying day.
"And when it comes to my last cast, "I then most humbly pray: "When in the Lord's great landing net "and peacefully asleep, "that in His mercy I be judged "big enough to keep.
" At this point, I'd like to invite everyone to say their final goodbyes.
You can't do this anymore Whatever you're really fightin' for Time won't slow down and wait for you There's only so much one can go through Just wait Just wait And just wait Just wait [UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYING] Barbara.
Sure had a lot of friends.
Everyone loved him.
Hey.
I'm sorry that you were on that boat, Ben.
Nothing you could have done, son.
This job, these fishermen risk their lives every time they go out.
Sean knew that.
It's part of what he loved about it.
I know.
Thanks.
Where's Maddie? I think she's, uh She's helpin' out with the food.
What? Oh, don't look so surprised.
I do know your girlfriend's name.
[DOUG] Wow, Mom.
- You said the "G" word.
- I'm impressed.
Oh.
Thank you for helping.
It's the least I can do.
Patti always said she might have been his wife, but the ocean was his mistress.
You work on a boat your whole life and to go that way? It doesn't make any sense.
No, it doesn't make any sense.
Not the place to talk about this.
I need a word with you, outside.
I want to know the truth.
How did Sean die? He got caught up in a net, couldn't Stop! He was my friend.
It was them.
Have you lost your mind? You might have all gotten killed! Believe me, if I could change it, I would.
You need to keep an eye on Xander.
If he were to find out that Ryn is one of them Just never seen a dead body before.
Look, we should remember Sean alive.
We're supposed to be celebrating his life.
Yeah.
No, um, of course.
Look, Xan, it's It's just this whole thing, you know, I can't handle it anymore.
My my mind is messed up.
I Look, man, you've been through a lot lately.
- Yeah.
- We all have.
Look, I can't even close my eyes without seeing them.
Yeah, me, too, man.
I just feel like I'm gonna crack, okay? Chris, if you need help, Doc Abbott has No more doctors.
No more hospitals.
Okay? Look, I'm leaving town, for good this time.
Chris, come on, man.
Yeah, I'm going.
It's done, okay? When? Now.
Where are you gonna go? Inland.
I never want to get on a boat again I have a cousin in Iowa says I can crash with him.
Look, Xan, I'm sorry, okay? But you get I mean, you get it, right? I can't stay here anymore.
I'm really sorry about your dad.
I'll never forget him.
Be good, all right? You guys stay safe, okay? [SLOW ROCK MUSIC PLAYING] Don't leave this town Sophia's eyes Caught in Sidney's mouth Down to one And one bring [BOTH MOANING] Whoa-ho-ho.
Whoa.
Sorry, I I don't know what got into me.
Oh, sex and funerals.
It's a thing.
- Really? - Sure.
We're all reminded of our mortality when someone dies.
Yeah.
I guess it's just the grief coming out.
[SIGHS] Oh.
Hey.
That wasn't what it looked like.
Mm-hmm.
Okay, yeah, it was what it looked like.
Hey.
Sex and funerals, man.
It's a thing.
So I've heard.
[BOISTEROUS CONVERSATIONS] To Captain Sean! To Captain Sean! [ALL] To Sean! Another round, Janine! Hey.
All you freeloaders gettin' drunk on my dad's account.
Not every day that a fisherman dies, so But thank you all for comin' out, payin' your respects, and, uh, to my mom, Patti McClure, everybody.
Give her Give her a hand.
Um, I wrote a few A few things down, so, uh My dad, uh he was a giant.
Larger than life.
[SNIFFLES] And, uh Giants aren't supposed to die.
He He spent his life, um He didn't have to die.
He didn't have to die.
Not like this.
I could have saved him.
He didn't have to die.
There are things out there.
Things that we can't control.
And they And they took my dad.
I'm sorry, Ma.
I'm gonna make this up to you.
Gonna make it up to you.
Hey, come on, man, it's okay.
Xan, come on.
It's okay.
I think that what Xander was tryin' to say is that That the ocean is a powerful, dangerous place.
No one knew this better than Sean.
I started workin' on, uh On Sean's boat when I was in high school, and the first thing I learned about Sean was that he can be a real pain in the ass.
[LAUGHTER] But in my teenage eyes, he also represented everything a man should be.
He was like a father to me.
I mean, he was tough, loyal, independent, and he would die for his men.
I can't believe he's gone.
And, uh, like all of you in here, I'm never gonna forget him.
Now if anyone else has anything they'd like to say.
[TED] Yeah.
I do.
I know most of you probably just think of me as the boss, landlocked in my office, but I started out as a fisherman, too.
And Sean and I, we worked together back when you could still catch a hundred-pound King salmon off the Kenai River.
Circumstances led us in different directions, but I've always had the highest respect for Sean.
He was a great man.
In his honor, let's drink this bar dry, 'cause this one's on me.
[PATTI] You're right.
It is.
All the pressures you put on these men, and pushin' them to fish night and day to fill your quotas, and why? To make you richer.
You are responsible for destroying marriages and tearing families apart.
My husband is dead, but it's not 'cause no damn net pulled him overboard! He was overworked, all for your greed.
So you're right, Ted.
This one is on you.
- [MAN] That's right! - Damn right! [BEN] Hey, hey, hey, come on.
We all loved Sean, okay? We're all hurting here.
Ms.
McClure, you most of all.
But my father is not the bad guy here.
I mean, he built this business, but not on his own.
And the whole town has grown with it.
He couldn't have done it without all of you.
And believe me, he knows it.
I mean, if we turn on him, we might as well all turn on each other.
My fight isn't with you, Mr.
Pownall.
May I? Tough crowd.
You're the only one bold enough to sit with me.
[CHUCKLES] I've never been one to care what people think.
- That's for sure.
- Mm-hmm.
I haven't received my check this month.
Sorry to hear that.
We hired a new bookkeeper for the family trust.
Something must have got lost in the shuffle.
You sure you need to ask me about this now? I want to help Patti with the expenses.
You know, she works for minimum wage? I'll get it sorted.
Good.
I'd like to help out, too.
Anonymous contribution.
That would be very generous of you.
It's a shame, isn't it? Times like these, I wish there wasn't so much water under our bridge.
After all, you and I, we're family.
[WALLY] Hey, miss? You mind? We're playin' here.
Hi.
I thought you might want to eat something.
Thank you.
Uh, Maddie? Look, I know my son has had his struggles, but I've never seen him quite like this.
Would you tell me if he needs help? Of course.
And maybe we could try that lunch again.
We know at least we have one thing in common.
I bet we could find a few more.
So, you and my mom.
That's groundbreaking.
We had a two-minute conversation.
That's a start.
I was surprised to see your friend here.
What friend? That girl, your friend? From the party? She's over there playing darts.
[WHOOSH, LOUD THUD] Oh! Third straight time! She's a deadeye.
Bet you can't do it again.
[BEN] Hey.
No, unfortunately, she can't.
Ryn, you can't be here.
What were you thinking? I want to learn.
Ben, you say me and my people are animals.
I want to know.
Know what? If I am human.
When my people die, family take body and swim for a long time.
We hold on.
Like a human, you hold on.
Yes.
Then what happens? We take body and bring to deep.
So no other animal can find it.
We leave it in special place.
A funeral.
I know I am part animal.
But I am part human.
[BOAT HORN] Hey.
Hi.
What I said up there about Sean, I don't want you to think that I didn't think anything.
I appreciate you stickin' up for me.
I wasn't stickin' up for you.
It's the truth.
I meant it.
I don't know when I got so separate from all of these guys.
These men, we were more than friends.
We were family.
I was one of them.
Hey.
You remember this guy? I didn't know Patti had that photo.
She didn't.
I put it up.
I remember that kid.
Strong-willed, smart, stubborn as hell.
Good to see some things haven't changed.
Maybe now that you're with the company, maybe you and I can get back some of what we lost, too.
Yeah, I'd like that.
[XANDER RETCHING AND COUGHING] You better go keep an eye on him.
[VOMITING] [XANDER COUGHING] You all right, Xan? [SOBBING] Look at me.
I'm here.
You're not alone.
Good.
'Cause I feel like I'm losin' my mind, man.
I know.
I know.
I get it.
I understand.
I don't even know what's real anymore.
You know? Are we always gonna feel like this? I don't know.
Hey, whatever happens, we will always be there for each other.
Yeah.
Yeah, we will.
[GUITAR PLAYING, MAN SINGING] Oh, we're homeward bound For a far better shore Goodbye, fare thee well Goodbye, fare thee well The whole of the town They will open their door Hoorah, me boys We're homeward bound And when we arrive At the old Anchor Bar Goodbye, fare thee well Goodbye, fare thee well Our families will come From near and far Hoorah, me boys We're homeward bound [APPLAUSE AND CHEERS] Where's Ryn?

Oh, no.
Wait, wait, wait.
It'll just draw more attention.

Just calm down.
All this time, you've been lyin' to me? So this is how we're gonna have each other's backs, man? You're so full of shit! Xander, I'm sorry.
You watched, man! You watched as that thing killed my dad, and you still didn't tell me the truth.
I mean, what is wrong with you? It wasn't just Ben, Xander.
It was me, too.
We were trying to protect her.
[POUNDING] [CROWD GASPS] Stay the hell away from me.
Ben, no.
He needs to cool down.
Yeah.
You about ready to go? I am But you're not.
You should stay.
I just have a feeling that if you started talking to them, you would feel like no time has passed.
I want to get you home.
I have two sons.
I think one of them will take pity on me.
[LAUGHTER] [SEA LION GRUNTING] [BARKING] [SEA LION BARKING] You're not afraid of me.
[CONTENTED CHIRPING] [GROANING SOFTLY] Oh, how are you holding up? Oh, I'm a little tired.

We gotta get you home.
- Hi.
- Hey.
I'm gonna take my mom home.
Is it okay if I meet you back at the Center? Of course.

I don't think that's such a good idea.
On my boat.
