Slasher (2016) s02e02 Episode Script

Between Good and Evil

[HORN HONKS] I should have stuck to my guns and ordered you a decaf.
Listen, a pregnant woman should not have more than 300 milligrams of caffeine in a day.
- I read it on the internet.
- You read it on the internet.
Yeah, that's how I know it's true.
[LAUGHS] You know, you are ridiculous, and ridiculously sweet, and cute, and What? I don't deserve you.
I'm the luckiest man I know.
[ANDI] Susan? Andi, hi.
I'm sorry to interrupt.
That was the sweetest thing.
[CHUCKLES] I'm Luke, Susan's husband.
- Hi.
I'm - Andi's an old friend.
How do you guys know each other? Camp.
We were camp counselors.
You didn't tell me you were a camp counselor.
I wonder what else she's keeping from me.
[SUSAN] Um Listen, Andi, I'd love to catch up, but we're actually just heading to brunch.
Yeah, of course.
No problem.
You know what? I could actually Go ahead and hold our spot if you wanted to catch up.
Thank you.
- It was nice meeting you, Andi.
- Likewise.
Wow, I Can't believe you're pregnant.
Look, Susan, I saw you.
I just wanted to say hello.
Well, do me a favor and next time you see me, just keep walking.
I wasn't going to say anything about what happened.
I'm not an idiot.
Well, I don't know what you're gonna say.
Look, what you do and don't tell your husband, that's none of my business.
You don't think he noticed something there? Andi, listen.
I will defend my family with my life.
Do you understand? Holy.
Holy fucking hell.
[SUSAN] Fuck! Fuck! Don't touch it! Who could know? Nobody knows.
It's been years.
[DAWN] Well, obviously, somebody fucking does! Fuck.
[SOBS] [PETER] Come on, get up.
Susan, listen to me.
Look at me.
Susan, look at me! Come here.
Come on, come on.
Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe.
There you go.
We're gonna be okay.
We're gonna figure this out.
Come on.
We're gonna get through this.
Are we? We shouldn't be here with a psychopath out in these woods.
Renee, stop, please.
Did you hear something? - No, did you? - Listen.
I don't hear anything.
- [SHOUTS] Gene! - Shh! Nobody's here.
Come on.
Let's move.
[LOUD CRACKING] It's okay.
We're okay.
[WHISPERS] Antoine.
What the hell is that? Jesus Christ.
No, no, please, please! No, no, please.
[SOBBING] Please.
It's him.
[PANTING] [NOAH] Almost done.
[PETER] Yeah, I think so.
You got blood on your hands.
And this is your lifeline.
Unless it says I'm gonna live to a hundred, I don't want to hear it.
It's not about how long you live.
It's about the quality of life you have.
See, a deep and long lifeline means that you're full of vitality, and that people are attracted to you.
Or it means my moisturizer sucks.
Can we please just finish setting up? Yeah.
Um, I have this sign here.
Where do you think it should go, back here or in the front? Doesn't matter.
I think it should go in the front.
Oh, and I got this snow globe that I thought we could use as a crystal ball.
What do you think? - Great.
- Okay, cool.
I'm gonna go get it, but Susan, I'm really excited that we're doing this together.
Okay, I'll be right back.
[SIGHS] Save me.
From what? This looks amazing.
No, not this.
From Talvinder.
Oh, my God, Susan.
Okay, I know.
I get it.
You guys all love Tal.
Come on.
She is like so desperate and clingy, it's disgusting.
Maybe she's overcompensating because she can sense that you hate her.
What can I say? The girl creeps me out.
And now I get to spend all night reading fortunes and staring into some stupid crystal ball that she's been off looking for - for the past hour! - Shh, shh.
- Jesus, Susan.
- What? You could be nicer to her, okay? You could.
You could try.
Okay, you know I can read people.
Okay, I don't need tarot cards or crystal balls.
My gut is telling me do not trust that girl.
[SCOFFS] What the fuck do I know, right? Because Tal's just so nice, and friendly, and amazing.
All right.
I must be wrong then.
Except I never am.
You know that.
[NOAH] What do you think the culties are doing right now? [DAWN] Talking about us.
Do you think they think we did it? - [DAWN] Why would we kill our friend? - Wouldn't be the first time.
Are you trying to help or are you going to be an asshole? - Fuck off, Dawn.
- You fuck off, Noah.
Guys, come on! Stop! Fuck off.
We need a story.
We need to get unified in case they accuse us of anything.
- Something simple.
- Okay, we attack first.
[PETER] Okay, how? Well, we're guests here, right? We come here for a reunion and this is what happened? Our friend's been murdered.
We're traumatized.
It's like Talvinder all over again, and we put them on the defensive.
It tracks with everything we've said so far.
I know, but I mean I don't think we should mention Talvinder unless we have to.
It just sounds like we're trying too hard.
Fine, then we won't.
Otherwise, I think it sounds good.
Let's go see if they found Gene and get the fuck out of here.
[KNOCKING] I just wanted to see how you were holding up.
I'm as well as I can be.
[SOFT CLATTERING] You're into crystals? I know, it's a little hocus pocus.
That's cool.
There's more things in heaven and earth.
Than can be dreamt of in your philosophy.
What are those ones? Carnelian.
Smoky quartz.
Sardonyx for protection.
I hold onto them because they help create a circle of support.
You're feeling scared.
You? There's so much terror in the field.
I'm fighting hard to stay present.
What's that? Black tourmaline will envelope you in protective energy and help you stay grounded.
Thank you.
Judith? Um What? I don't mean to pry into your business but do we have to be worried about you? No.
- You're not doing anything.
- No.
[KNOCKING] Hey, I'm calling a pow-wow.
- You all right, Antoine? You - You look shaken up.
Downstairs in five.
[ANTOINE] As you all know, earlier today one of our guests, Andi, was found dead.
And Renee and I went to find Gene to call for help.
We found that he had been killed as well.
Killed? Andi and Gene were both murdered.
Wait, how do you know they were murdered? This is so fucked up.
My friends, my friends, please, we have to remain calm so that we can figure this out together.
- Together we are stronger.
- No, no, no.
This is not the time for your "Kumbaya" circle jerk bullshit, all right? We need to find out who did this.
Both groups lost someone.
I'm giving you a fact right now.
The bodies didn't start dropping until these assholes showed up.
Oh, nice, yeah.
Blame the victim.
We came here for a reunion, okay? Our friend was brutally murdered and now you're accusing us? It's not Nobody's accusing you of anything.
You lost your friend, - and we lost ours.
- Right.
If we can get two on a sled, we can carry half of us over to Gene's, use the phone and call for help.
Yeah, and who are the lucky fucks who get to stay behind? [RENEE] The main priority here is safety.
We have three snow mobiles and we're going to be boondocking it, so we've got to keep it light [VOICE FADES AWAY] Oh, my God, you don't think it was one of us, do you? I'm not a fucking detective, Renee! For fuck's sakes! Sorry.
Sorry, that was very reactive of me.
Yeah, you're goddamn right it was.
I'm trying to hold space for you, but it's a lot to process.
Can we just have silence, please? No problem.
You check that one.
[ENGINE SPUTTERS] Fuck, it's not working.
This one is down too.
Let me try.
[GRUNTS] Fuck.
There's no gas.
It's empty.
- This one is too.
- Shit.
Siphoned it out.
Susan, no one has volunteered to stay behind, so we'll be drawing straws.
Susan? Sorry.
I was a million miles away.
Anything I can do? You got a time machine? I just want to go back before any of this happened, before we ever decided to come here and do everything.
That's what I want.
I want to spend the rest of my life with good people.
Stay away from the bad ones.
The bad ones? Yeah.
They're everywhere.
[TALVINDER] The kids will be here any minute.
Let's do our final touches.
I have an idea.
I think we should do something with our hair, something kind of witchy.
Oh, come on.
If you don't like it, we can always take it out.
- Okay.
- Really? Okay.
- Sit down.
Come on! - Okay.
- [GIGGLES] - Okay.
Your hair is really nice.
I love doing hair.
When I was a little girl, I used to play with my dolls' hair all the time.
I find it so relaxing.
So I was thinking we could do your hair split in the front.
And maybe a couple of braids in front of your face.
Or we could sweep it all to one side.
Your skin's really soft.
It feels amazing.
Makes me wanna Makes you wanna what? It makes me wanna Tell you how pathetic you are.
I see right through you, even if the others don't.
We all have the capacity to do both evil and good.
Now, if you told me that you didn't want to hang around with murderers anymore, I'd say yeah, you probably shouldn't be hanging around with murderers.
But you said you wanted to get away from the bad people.
And that's impossible because you, like me and everyone else, you have both of those things in you.
[PETER] We're stuck here for the night.
You guys are sure you checked every snowmobile? What do you think, Noah? Look, we'll head out to Gene's in the morning on foot.
For now, let's try to get some sleep.
How could you think about sleep when we're being stalked? We'll keep watch.
We'll take shifts.
- We have no protection.
- Yes, we do.
- Dawn! - What the fuck? What? I brought it, just in case.
In case of what? I don't know.
A psycho killer stalking us, Talvinder's ghost out to get revenge, rabid coyotes.
Do you have any idea what happens to you, to us if they find out you have a weapon? If someone comes in here, I'll shoot them.
In your sleep? Yeah, in my sleep, Susan.
No one's coming in here because we're barricading the fucking door.
- Yo, what's that? - What? Chill.
It's not like a guy with a machete or anything.
It's just a box.
"Stay warm.
" How thoughtful.
- I mean, unless it's a - Noah, what is it? I'll look.
It's just clothes.
[GASPS] Holy shit! They're Gene's clothes.
- That's what he was wearing.
- Oh, God! - Fuck.
No, no, no, I won't.
- I won't.
- What are you? What are you doing? I'm leaving! I'm going back to Gene's, and getting in my SUV, - and getting out of this hell hole.
- No, no, no.
- It's pitch black.
It's a 30K walk.
- Yeah, then you'll die.
I'd rather freeze to death than get stabbed in my sleep.
At least out there I have a chance.
I've hiked 30K before.
I can do it.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I agree with Susan.
I'd rather take my chances out there.
That doesn't make any sense! Wait until morning! No! No, no, no.
Fuck that.
I'm leaving with or without you.
[DOOR OPENS] Let's go.
[SUSAN PANTING] Hey, you think this old RV still works? Susan, walk away right now.
What happened? Seriously, you're playing dumb? - Dawn, get her away from me.
- Okay, okay.
[TALVINDER SOBS] I didn't do this.
Okay, this is Talvinder doing exactly Oh, really? Blame the victim? That's what you're asking me to do right now? You're unbelievable.
Get out of here.
Get the fuck out of here, Susan! - It's okay.
It's okay.
- [SOBBING] [SUSAN PANTING] [SUSAN] We've walked like, 7K in the last 45 minutes.
At this rate, it'll take us three hours to get to the outfitters.
- What is this? - What? Oh, shit.
The phone line has been cut.
Oh! Someone's doing this on purpose.
Someone's hunting us down and cutting us off from the rest of the world.
He might be out here, so shut up.
- [HOWLING] - [GASPS] - What is that? - That's not a fucking squirrel.
- [GROWLING] - Run! - What? Wait! Wait! No! - Leave it! Do you think they're going to make it? Stop thinking about them.
They never found her? The police looked everywhere, but no.
They never found her.
- Not a trace? - Nothing, nada.
She's the reason my family lost this camp.
After she disappeared, no one would send their kids here anymore.
That is seriously screwed up.
I need a cup of tea.
So, how long ago did all that happen? My brother shut the camp down about three years ago.
It was a couple of years before that when the girl disappeared.
Noah said they were here for a reunion.
Five years ago, they'd be the right age.
Did they know her? It's got to be connected.
[PANTING] [GRUNTS] - Are you okay? - I can't breathe.
Hold on.
I think whatever that was that was following us is gone.
[HOWLING] I can't keep going on.
I'm exhausted, and I think every part of my body is frozen.
Okay, okay.
Oh, fuck.
What did, uh What did one ghost say to the other ghost? - Fuck off.
- Hey.
I'm changing the subject, okay? What did one ghost say to the other ghost? I have no idea.
- Do you believe in people? - [GROANS] That's hilarious.
Just don't quit your day job.
Now you tell me a joke.
Okay? You tell me a joke but we've got to keep walking.
Come on.
One foot in front of the other.
One foot in front of What? [NOAH GROANS] Oh, come on! Are you fucking kidding me? We're going around in circles.
Look, we're not good at this.
If we keep going, we're going to die out here.
- We need to go back.
- No! - No! - Susan, come on, please! - I can't go back there! - You have to.
We have no choice.
We're not gonna make it.
[LOUD THUD] [PANTING] - What the hell were you thinking? - Antoine, this is not the time.
The phone lines.
They didn't just come down in the wind.
They were cut on purpose.
Noah, you're hypothermic and you're frostbitten all over.
I'm a trained nurse.
I'm going to take your socks off, okay? Oh, fuck, that is nasty.
You're going to lose those.
Fuck, excellent bedside manner, guys.
You should be a doctor.
[KEIRA] Wiggle your toes for me.
[NOAH GROANS] We won't know how bad it is until you thaw out.
We need to warm you up.
Do you think I'm going to lose my toes or anything - 'cause I've grown attached to them.
- [KEIRA] Okay, relax.
- No one's losing any body parts.
- Yeah? You should tell that to your buddy, Gene.
You know what? There are some heaters in the back.
I'm going to get them.
We're going to save those piggies, okay? Those are propane heaters.
Do you want us all to suffocate? There's an electric heater in their cabin.
Well then, go get it! Mark, go with her.
Tell Dawn and Peter what happened.
Any other orders, sir? Oh, Jesus Christ, you're gonna worry about that now? Antoine.
I'm sorry.
You're right.
I'm I should never have barked out orders at you.
Uh My sincerest apologies.
In the meantime, what can I do to help Noah? Get a dish towel.
Warm it with some hot water, and hold it against his face, his hands, and his feet.
They got a gun.
What the fuck, Dawn? It's Keira and Mark.
What the hell is wrong with you? [MARK] They have a gun.
They have a gun.
They shot at us.
[RENEE] Are you okay? I think so.
Why did you bring a gun up here? - Answer me! - We didn't.
- No.
- Dawn, she brought the gun.
We didn't even know she was packing heat until like a couple of hours ago.
I'm not the one, okay? Don't look at me - We are looking at you, both of you! - Answer her.
Why'd your friend bring a fucking gun here? - We have no idea! - [GLENN] You're lying.
- Look, we didn't do anything.
- Spare me! I'm not stupid.
- Renee, please just listen to me.
- I'm done listening.
And trusting.
[PANTS] Dawn is 100 percent on Talvinder's side.
- That girl is such a psychopath.
- Susan? Why should I believe you over them? Because we're friends, Andi.
Because we've worked together for the past three summers in a row, and have I ever done anything to make you not trust me? No.
I really wish I could spare you from this but you deserve to know the truth.
Give me the gun.
- What? We're going over to the main house and explaining our psycho behavior! No, we're not.
No fucking way! I will protect myself! You're starting to scare me right now.
Dawn, give me the gun.
Now! Take it.
I don't want things to get any more out of hand.
I think we're past that point.
If I meant you any harm, do you really think I'd be giving this to you? Why do you even have a gun? Maybe Dawn was just afraid of being in the wilderness alone.
Animals, I don't know.
Five years ago, a young woman disappeared from this camp and you were all here, all five of you.
That's not true! We had nothing And now you're back and people are getting killed.
One of you brought a gun, so I'm sorry if we don't believe you.
There are just way too many coincidences.
Too many lies.
Noah, Susan, over here, now! Go to your cabin and don't come back for any reason.
We'll send you food but that's it.
This house is off limits.
- Antoine, Renee, please.
- That's how it's gonna be! You come back, I'll be the one using the gun! [DOOR LOCKS] Hey.
You back? Yeah.
And, thanks to you, we're now under house arrest.
House arrest? Where's the gun? [NOAH] Uh Don't ask.
- Hello? Where's the gun? - [PETER] Don't ask.
I'm asking.
- They took it.
- [NOAH] If by "they took it," you mean Peter handed it over like a little bitch? - Then yeah, they took it.
- I'm sorry.
Are you a fucking moron? [SUSAN] Stop! You don't get to be mad right now.
See, you're the reason we're in this mess.
- Oh.
I'm the reason? - Yeah, you are.
Guys, you guys really don't need to fight right now, okay? Can we just be a team, please? [SUSAN] No, this isn't a team, okay? I can barely stand the sight of the three of you, let alone spend the night with a bunch of fucking murderers! You guys all have blood on your hands.
You deserve to be in jail.
- And you don't? - No, I don't! I never touched Talvinder! I am the only one who never laid a finger on her! - Please, don't do this right now! - You're out of your fucking mind! - Dawn.
- No, no, no! She needs to hear this.
Hear what? What? What? None of this would have ever happened if it wasn't for you and that sick little plan that you cooked up to teach Talvinder a lesson.
You started this.
You own it.
You lit the fucking match and you ran away the second the whole thing went up in flames! And now you stand there and you tell me that you're better than us? I hope you're next.
Should we go after her? Fuck her.
I'm going to bed.
[WIND BLOWING] Andi, wait! Andi, wait! [SOBBING] I trusted her and I I defended her.
And then she goes and she fucks I know.
I just wanna scream at her until she fucking gets it! Yelling at her isn't gonna make a difference.
She's going to laugh in your face.
So, what what are you saying, just don't bother? No.
I'm saying if you want to have an impact on her, you need to think like her.
We come up with a plan, we set it up, and execute it.
You know, I'm sorry you had to see that.
You have to be patient, okay? I promise you we'll make her pay for what she's done so she never does this again.
[GASPS, SCREAMS] [PANTS] [TALVINDER SOBBING, SCREAMING] Please! Oh, no! Stop it! [SOBBING CONTINUES] Susan, the plan fucking changed! - So, what are we going to do now? - Oh, no.
- Peter - Susan! Susan! Susan, I'm sorry.
I I can't do this.
I can't do that! - No, I can't do this.
It's okay.
It's okay it's me.
Oh, Wren! [PANTS] I was just, I was going to stay in here and keep an eye on you, but you fell asleep.
How did you get in here? How did I not hear you? How I'm not surprised.
It's been a hell of a day.
Let me, um.
Help you relax.
Can you feel my breath? Is that all right? Breathe with me, Judith.
Right down.
Right down to your pelvis.
Feel your whole body.
Yeah Yeah.
Is that better? Good.
Okay, you get some sleep.
I'm just down the hall if you need me.
[DOOR CLOSES] You sure you don't want to carry this thing? I can carry more than firewood.
If we have to fire it, I'll probably shoot you in the head.
[SCREAMS] - What? - Oh, my God.
How do you do it? You seem so together.
I pretend that night never happened.
I don't think about it ever.
But it did happen and we all have to live with the consequences.
Well some of us have more to regret than others.
The next time I see you, I'll just keep walking.
Susan? Good luck pretending it never happened.
