1 [ALL CHEERING, LAUGHING] [CHEERING, LAUGHING CONTINUE] Cheers! - [NOAH] Yeah, that's what I'm saying! - [CHEERING CONTINUES] Whoo! - [NOAH] Good? - [TALVINDER] Yeah, great.
[ALL CHEERING] Guys, guys.
Guess what I just found? - What? - What? A swimming hole.
[ALL CHEERING] [TALVINDER] You guys wanna go swimming? [DAWN] I wanna go swimming.
I can barely walk! - Oh, come on.
Oh! - I'm good! I'm good! - Come on.
We've got your back.
- Yeah, it'll be fun.
- It'll be great.
- [LAUGHING] Okay.
[TALVINDER] You guys, did anyone bring a towel? Do you want me to go back and get a picnic blanket? [ANDI] No, we're fine.
Come on.
[LAUGHS] You guys, what is this? There's a fire? - [ANDI] We're here.
- [TALVINDER] Here? This is weird.
What's going on, you guys? Guys, this is freaking me out.
Tell me or I'm going back.
- What the fuck? - You're on trial, Talvinder.
- For what? - For being a nasty bitch.
Get in the circle.
[SCOFFS] Fuck that.
[ANDI] Get in the fucking circle.
[ANDI] I felt sorry for you.
I opened myself up to you, I let you into my world, and you used that to go and fuck my boyfriend.
I used to trust people, but I can't do that anymore.
And that's because of you.
- None of that was Peter's fault? - Shut the fuck up! - No, you don't get to talk! - Peter fucked me, Andi.
I didn't make him.
He wanted to.
So, stop acting like the fucking victim! Next? I never liked you.
I never trusted you from the minute I met you.
And it's not because you're a terrible person.
It's because you're nothing.
Who are you, Talvinder? Can you even answer that? I should've seen what Susan saw.
In the real world I wouldn't give you the time of day, not for a second.
We wouldn't even be friends.
I'm sorry.
[SCOFFS] Fuck you.
I was supposed to stand up here and talk about how awful of a person you are.
But if anyone should be on trial, it's me, 'cause what I did was way worse.
I'm so sorry, Andi.
I really am.
That's all I've got to say.
All right, Noah, buddy.
It's your turn.
- Shut up! - [TALVINDER SCREAMING] Shut the fuck up! Shut up! I'm gonna teach you some fucking manners! [SCREAMING CONTINUES] [TALVINDER] Stop! [SCREAMING] No! [WHIMPERING] [PETER] Talvinder! - [SUSAN] Talvinder! - [PETER] Talvinder! [ANDI] Wait, just come back! We'll take you! [SUSAN] It's not safe! [WHIMPERING] [PETER] Talvinder! - [PETER] No, no, no, no! - [ANDI] Oh, my God.
She She's dead.
- [SUSAN] What? - [PETER] She's dead! No, no, no, no.
Oh, fuck.
[SCREAMING] If we take her back, we're going to jail! - It's her word against ours.
- No, I can't.
No, I can't Susan! [SCREAMING] - [TALVINDER SCREAMS] - [ALL GASP] Dawn.
Dawn! No! Stop! [GROANING] Noah.
Noah! [TALVINDER COUGHS] Wren, wait! What's gonna happen now? What, you're gonna go into that house with a gun and? They're murderers, Judith! Keira's a murderer? Or Mark? Who did he kill? What about Renée or Antoine or the woman who came to us to find shelter? - What about Gene? What about them? - They got in the way! Talvinder was 20.
Judith, she was 20.
She was a child.
Those five, they took her out into the woods and they caved her head in.
And then they left her there to rot.
They were her friends and they killed her.
And they let an innocent man take the fall for what they did.
- The others - The others? The others don't matter.
Keira lives.
Give me the gun.
What about the rest of 'em? They're all yours.
[JUDITH] I was out walking, and I I heard something.
I thought it was Peter, but it wasn't.
It was Mark.
And he had this really weird look on his face, and I thought it was because I upset him, because I left to go find Peter, and then We started walking, and then I saw your gun.
And I realized that he was going to, um He was taking me into the woods to shoot me.
No, Mark would never do that.
Mark is gonna shoot me, and I don't even know how it happens, but I think it's my it's my only chance.
And so I reach for the gun, and I'm saying, "Mark, stop this.
Don't come any closer.
" And he kept coming, and he was threatening me, and I I pulled the trigger.
That's okay, Judith.
You don't need to say any more.
We all understand.
I don't know.
No, this doesn't make any fucking sense.
- Dawn.
- This doesn't make any fucking sense.
You're lying.
This is bullshit.
You need to calm You need to calm down.
- You're the killer, aren't you, Judith? - Dawn.
Aren't you? And you're saying all of this so that we'll just lower our guard.
But I'm not gonna sit here, waiting to be your next victim.
I will protect myself.
Oh, my God.
Take it.
Please, I don't I don't want it.
Take it.
She was still in shock when I found her.
Still had the gun in her hand.
I'm really having a hard time imagining Judith shooting anybody.
It was self-defense.
Well, I'm having a hard time picturing Mark - being a cold-blooded serial killer.
- Are you serious? - Yes! - I nearly froze to death because of him.
He drugged me and locked me out of the fucking house.
Yes, because he thought you were the killer.
Do you get it? - [PETER] Did he? - [DAWN] Yes.
Or maybe he was just saying that because he wanted to take me out! Maybe if you just open your eyes and see I am, Peter! I am and I'm not buying it! Could you please just listen to me for one second without reacting? - If Judith is the one killing us - [PETER] Oh, my God.
She's gonna be smart about it! It's not impossible! [WREN] Yeah, it is.
Judith? Judith tearing out people's eyeballs, fuckin' pureeing Renée with a snowmobile? [PETER] Keira, what do you think? Well, Judith had a nervous breakdown before she got here.
- Hm.
- Mark He saw a woman die right in front of him.
And obviously, he's been overwhelmed the past few days.
- He probably has PTSD.
- Yes, because he was shot! He was shot and that changed his life! Maybe it fucked with his head, Dawn! [KEIRA] Look, Judith gave us the gun.
We didn't ask for it.
She just handed it over.
If she was the killer, why would she do that? [NOAH] You awake, Peter? Yes.
Last night Did that Did it really happen? I mean, like like, maybe we were all just asleep, you know? Or I guess I guess I am, but, I mean, then maybe I'm trapped in a nightmare - Noah, shut the fuck up! - [KNOCKING ON DOOR] Who is it? Who do you think? - People keep asking us where Talvinder is.
- What'd you tell them? That she went out for a jog earlier this morning.
We haven't seen her since.
- Do they believe you? - So far.
There was There was that bear sighting last week, right? On the trail, past the lake? Maybe Maybe we remind people about that.
Talvinder was eaten by a bear.
That's what you wanna tell people? At least, I'm coming up with something.
We have to say something, Peter.
- No.
No, we don't.
- Yes, we do.
Look, she went for a run.
That's the last time you saw her.
She's not coming back from that fucking run! - Dawn! Shh! - [DAWN] They'll call the police.
And if anyone saw us with her yesterday, it's all gonna come back to us, and then we're going to jail for the rest of our fucking lives.
- Just calm down.
Calm Calm - Shh! Please don't fucking tell me to relax right now! You need to fucking calm down.
Dawn, calm down right now! - Breathe.
- We need But we need to do something.
- Yes.
- Right? Just breathe.
This is my life now.
Yes, Andi, this is your life now.
This is my life.
All of our fuckin' lives.
[DAWN] I can't fucking believe that we are taking her word for it for something that none of us saw.
[KEIRA] Dawn, she could've come in here and shot all of us, but she didn't.
She did the exact opposite.
[ENGINE REVVING] Where the hell is my boyfriend? [PETER] Janice, just stay here, okay? Gene is I don't even know what to say.
Oh, my God.
[PETER] Let's get back to the main house.
- Stay away from me! - Look, I know you're in shock.
I told Gene you guys are a cult! J-Janice, listen, we need your help.
You can get us out of here.
I've got room for one.
What if we siphon some of the gas from your sled into one of ours? I said I've got room for one! - It should be Keira who goes.
- We need to get help.
Keira could call the police from your place.
Why me? Why do I get to go? Because you have your whole life ahead of you, and the sooner you get out of here - safe and sound - I thought we were safe and sound.
Now that Mark's dead? Dawn should go.
You're injured.
You need real medical attention.
You're a part of this community.
This is our home.
Dawn goes.
End of discussion.
Well, take care of yourself and stay inside that house.
Don't come out until the police get here.
Okay.
Promise me, Peter.
I promise.
[ENGINE STARTS] You gave them the gun? I had to.
It was either that or I will see you again.
[CRYING] - [RUMBLING, CLATTERING] - [BOTH GASP] It just was snow falling off the roof.
Well, I can't just sit here.
I need to do something.
Why don't you go upstairs and pack your things? They'll probably let us bring a bag or two, if you wanna go get your things ready.
[TO HERSELF] This This is for the best.
This is for the best.
This is for the best.
Mark's the killer.
Peter and Keira believe that.
And And the police will too.
And then you and me, we can leave this place, Wren.
We can leave the awful memories, and and we can live in peace.
They've paid.
They've paid.
Even if they live, they've paid.
Open your heart.
Open your heart.
I'm gonna go find Dawn.
I'm gonna kill her.
Then I'll come back here, and I'm gonna kill him too.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
- And if Keira gets in the way - No.
- No, no, no, no.
You promised.
- You don't love me.
Wren, please, I do.
You know I do.
No.
No, you just love yourself.
So, what happens when you get back? I miss being a nurse.
You're a healer.
- No.
- Yes, you are.
- Hey.
Hey.
- [SIGHS] You kept Noah alive.
I killed someone.
- That was an accident, Keira.
- No.
An accident is an act of God.
It's something you can't control.
I screwed up and somebody died.
Well, now, you get to make things right.
You get to go back and save lives.
What about you? I'll do what I should have done five years ago.
- You'll go to jail.
- I will.
And so will Dawn.
Keira, my friends and I we deserved everything that happened to us.
- Peter.
- No, justice is justice.
I thought I'd finally found someone who really understood me.
Someone who really loved me for who I am.
- I do.
I do love you.
- No, you don't.
You say you do, but you don't.
You're just pretending.
What am I? What do I mean to you? Everything.
- Everything? - Everything.
Will you help me? Will you kill them for me? Please? - Please? - No, no, it's too late.
It's too late.
Dawn Dawn's miles and miles away now.
It's too late.
Then I'll do it myself.
If I leave now, I can catch 'em.
No! Peter and Keira will hear you.
- And then they'll put two and two - Then I'll shoot them both.
No, no.
No Keira.
You said Goddamn it! That's enough about fucking Keira! Fucking Keira! - Keira is innocent! You can't kill Keira! - Keira's not! You fucking bitch! You fucking bitch! You care more about her than you do about me! No! Wren, don't! No one will ever love you like I fucking loved you! You're gonna die alone because you're weak! You fucking coward! You fucking worthless coward! Because you're fucking weak! - Wren, no! - Shit! You never deserved me.
You never did and you never will.
- No! No! - You're fucking weak! You're fucking weak! - You're fucking weak! - You won't take over! No! [PANTING] [GASPS] [GRUNTING, PANTING] - [CLATTERING] - Judith! - [GLASS SHATTERING] - [KNOCKS] Judith, are you okay? Judith! Judith's always been fragile.
She's really kept it together the last couple days until she killed Mark.
Is she gonna be okay? - I think so.
They're just scratches.
- I don't mean physically.
- We need to find Mark's body.
- Yeah.
We need to confirm that he's actually dead.
I'm pretty sure he's dead, Keira.
Well, pretty sure isn't good enough.
You're right.
You know what? You stay here.
I'm gonna go find him.
- No, I'm coming with you.
- No, you're gonna stay here.
Peter, you can't go out there by yourself.
Look, we can't leave Judith here alone.
When help arrives, someone needs to be here and they need to be awake.
- You know what? You take this.
- No.
Take it.
I cannot be out there worried about you and myself.
Take the gun.
You need to come back here as soon as you can.
Okay, I promise.
Don't make promises you can't keep.
I'm keeping this one.
Lock the door behind me.
[LOCK CLICKS] Judith.
Did I fall asleep? [SIGHS] No, you passed out.
You don't remember? It's okay.
Look I know.
It's all just been way too much for you.
You're overwhelmed.
It's okay.
They're coming to get us.
Did I, uh Did I hurt anyone? No.
Just yourself.
Where's Peter going? - Um - What? He's going to get Mark's body.
But don't let that upset you, okay? I'm gonna go clean up my mess.
- Judith, you should rest.
- I'm gonna go to my room.
What's left of my room.
Wren? Wren? Wren? Where are you? Wren? Please come out, Wren.
[WREN'S VOICE] I will [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING] If you kill them for me.
- No.
- Kill 'em.
No! No, I can't do that, Wren.
I can't.
- Do it.
- No, I don't want to.
- Don't make me do this.
- Judith.
- No.
- Judith, do it.
- No.
No, no.
No, no, no.
- I said do it.
Judith, I said do it! Stop being a fucking coward and go out there and kill them for me! - [BREATHING HEAVILY] - Do it now! [GROANS] Judith.
Judith, if you don't kill them I will.
[DOOR OPENS, CLOSES] What are you doing? Why are we stopping? A week ago, this was all ice.
Okay, can we just can we ride through it or? Are you kidding me? We'll have to backtrack to the main trail.
There's a bridge that way.
I think we have enough fuel.
Oh, you think? Okay, great.
Get us the fuck out of here now.
[SCREAMS] Janice! Janice! Janice, Janice! Janice! Janice! [WHIMPERING] [CRIES, GASPS] Keira! Hey, hey, hey! Hey! Judith! Judith, where are you? Come on.
Come on.
Stay with me.
Keira.
Keira! Come on, come on.
[OWEN'S VOICE] Dear Mom The evidence against me is overwhelming.
I'm not getting out of here.
Not alive anyway.
Those five framed me.
Please, Mother, find justice.
Do whatever it takes.
Destroy them.
Love, your little wren Owen.
Come on, come on.
Please don't take her from me.
[JUDITH] Peter.
- She's alive.
- Barely.
Peter You have a choice to make.
One of you lives one of you dies.
No, no, no, no, no.
Fuck that.
No? No.
Why not? You've done it before.
[PETER] No, no, no.
"The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold.
And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold.
And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea when the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilee.
But the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast and breathed on the face of the foes he passed.
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill.
And their hearts but once heaved and forever grew still.
And forever grew still.
" How do I know you just won't kill her? Because I don't want to.
And Antoine? Did you want to kill him? Or Renée? Or Gene? [PETER] What about the others, huh? Why did you kill them? Why the fuck did you kill them? Enough! Those deaths are on you! You and your fuckin' friends! You killed Talvinder.
You framed me.
You sent me to jail.
You killed me! - Judith, wait.
- Stop calling me that.
You're not Owen.
No, no, no, no, Owen's dead.
You're Judith.
Did you get my letter? Yes, I did.
[RADIO FEEDBACK] No! No! No! Peter - what is? - Okay, okay.
Judith, Judith.
- Judith, listen to me.
- Where am I? Please give me the gun.
Please, okay? We're-We're in danger, okay? Give me the gun.
No! Shoot that [GRUNTS] Wren! Wren, you stop! Enough! Shoot! Shoot that fucker between the eyes! Don't make me! Five minutes! That's That's all it took.
It was five minutes.
From the moment Owen hung himself until they found him hanging by his bedsheets.
- You - I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
If I If I could If I could go back, I would.
You owe me those five minutes.
You owe me.
You wanted to do right? Now's your chance.
Huh? I'll put a bullet in Keira's brain and make the decision for you.
And you can just walk away.
You walk away and go back to living your life or Keira does.
It's up to you, Peter.
- [DAWN] Noah.
- [NOAH GRUNTING, PANTING] [BOTH CRYING] - [GASPS] - [GASPS] [NOAH] Why won't you fuckin' die? Why won't you die? - [CRYING] - Just fuckin' die! [HEART BEATING RAPIDLY] Jay? Jay, you okay? What's going on, buddy? What you got? [PETER'S VOICE] Dear Mr.
and Mrs.
Gill I'm writing this letter to tell you that your daughter Talvinder is dead.
She's been dead these past five years, since the night me and my friends killed her and then buried her body in the woods near our summer camp.
My friends and I did a terrible thing that night and then we did another terrible thing a few days later.
We framed Owen Turnbull for the crime, and he hung himself because of us.
Two deaths, and we are to blame.
We are murderers.
We've told ourselves it was just an accident, but it wasn't.
We didn't set out to kill her, but the actions we took that night cost Talvinder her life.
It's time my friends and I paid for what we did.
It's time Talvinder and Owen get the justice they deserve.
It's time for me to step up and do what needs to be done.
Sincerely Peter Burrow.
[SIRENS WAILING IN DISTANCE] Hey.
Um, thank you for coming.
I would hug you, but You're doing the right thing.
Uh Talvinder's parents deserve to know the truth.
I just keep thinking about Mark, and Peter and how they died 'cause of me.
No.
They died because of Judith.
Our friends were killed because of Judith.
Right.
You ready? Okay.
Yeah.
You came back to me.
Of course I did.
I'll never leave you again.
Now, what do we do about Dawn? She's getting away.
For now.
But when she gets out we'll be waiting.
[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]
