Slasher (2016) s03e07 Episode Script

Midnight to 3 A.M.

1 And what's that naked guy with the goat's head? Did he have - Mm, the one with the piercing.
- Yes! I was gonna ask.
Yeah, he was flapping that thing around last year, too.
- I guess he wants everyone to know.
- Why? It looks terrible.
- I don't get it.
- Yeah, me neither.
Are you disappointed at all? I mean, 'cause we came from the party a little early? No, I guess, after I got over the shock of it, I I expected it to be crazier.
Oh, it gets way crazier later on.
I mean, we can go back in a couple of hours.
- No.
- No? But the way Kit described it, I expected, like, blood and sex and, like Oh, there were.
- There were people doing some - I know, I know.
No, but I thought it'd be like that Greek play, where the women go crazy, have sex with all the men and then kill them.
- That's the party you wanted to go to? - Yeah.
Me and you must've been taking different drama classes.
It's better to be back here with you.
You're a tough guy to get alone.
I mean, I'm I'm alone a bunch.
Not with me.
Well, you're Jen's best friend.
- She doesn't want us hanging out alone.
- No.
She's probably with Amber right now, so we can hang out.
Amber's usually my job.
My parents would lose their minds if they knew you were here.
- I can go.
I mean - No.
It's not gonna give! It's not gonna give! - Keep your mouth shut! - You're pulling it open! I can't fuckin' breathe! - [SCREAMS.]
- It's not give, it's not gonna give! - Calm down.
Calm down.
Okay? - I can't take it! - Calm down, okay? - [PANTS.]
Oh, fuck! [SCREAMS.]
- Oh, fuck! - Oh, fuck, get it off! Get it off! [GRUNTS.]
All right.
Take a bunch of my cards.
And the mug shots of Wyatt.
And canvass the neighborhood.
We want to know if anyone's seen him with any of the victims, the residents of the apartment, or near the school, the café, or this building.
Can't this wait till morning? I mean, we got the guy locked up for two murders.
Two of six.
He did the rest, I'm sure of it.
But something feels hinky.
I mean why'd he he flipped when he saw the dissection photos.
- He's putting on an act.
- You know, I hope so, but then why is he bragging about two of them and cagey about the other four? - He's got a screw loose.
- Okay, you know what? Maybe.
But if we're wrong about the other murders There's a killer out on the streets.
A killer who's murdered four people in 12 hours.
A killer who might be lining up their fifth for the day.
- Okay, gotcha.
- If I want to be able to sleep, I need to find something to trap him and push him into confessing.
- Got it? - Got it.
Let's start with the residents then hit the streets.
I don't know how that happened.
It's okay.
I figured I should stay.
I dunno.
Even if they did catch this guy [SIGHS.]
I can't believe I slept.
I've been sleeping so badly lately.
Yeah, me too.
Must mean I feel safe with you here taking care of me.
I'm fine.
You should rest.
- Let's swap.
- And you'll protect me? I'm stronger than I look.
- That's scary.
Come here.
Lie down.
I feel like I should be doing this to you.
Why not? [KNOCK AT DOOR.]
I'd like a minute of your time.
It's that detective again.
Sorry to bother you so late, but we're going door-to-door asking if you've seen this man.
Is this the Druid? - The man you caught.
- He's a suspect, yes.
Wow, really? Do you recall seeing him in the building, the community? He looks so normal.
I guess I expected - I don't know, a monster or something.
- Do you recognize him? No.
Sorry, I don't think so.
- Is he from around here? - Never near the school? No.
I think I'd remember.
Wish I could be more help.
I want to assure you, I know the part that Dan Olenski played in this, and I'm not gonna let it go unpunished.
It's not just him, it's everyone.
- Others in the building? - That bitch Violet down the hall.
She's been blasting the internet with that tweet and our photos.
We've been getting death threats.
We have a cyber unit that takes threats very seriously.
Like that'll make a difference, when you can't figure out where the threats are coming from.
People are yelling at us from their cars, and throwing things.
It's happening all the time.
It's even happening at their school! I promise you.
I'm gonna get you and your mother justice for what happened here today.
Can you take a look at the photo? Yeah.
Yeah, I saw him at the party last year.
He was weird.
Stood by himself, didn't party with anyone.
Anywhere else? Around the building? The coffee shop.
Xander's place.
Really? - Yeah.
Couple of times, for sure.
Well, did he talk with Xander, get into any disagreements? No.
He stared at people.
I remember, because I didn't like the way he was staring at the girls, my sister.
Well, did he talk with her? No.
He saw him looking at him and he just left.
Have you seen him talk to anyone else in the building? Maybe Cassidy? At the coffee shop? But - I'm not sure.
I'm sorry.
- No.
This is a great help.
I'll need to talk with you again in a day or two.
You two aren't going back to the solstice party? Huh.
Too many Druids.
Well, we caught the one that matters.
So, you guys enjoy the rest of your night.
Thank you.
Are you okay? You know, cops didn't do anything when Kit died, and you know, because he partied and slept with guys.
But they're all over this.
'Cause Cassidy was a cute white girl, and Kaili was a white teacher! But she's black.
Her boss is probably white.
Probably right.
I'm gonna go shower, get out of this sweaty costume.
I'll meet up with you later, okay? - Okay.
- Okay.
If the Druid shows up Of course the Druid's gonna show up.
Why else would this sick fuck do this to us? Then you gotta kill me.
We're gonna get outta here, okay? - Promise? - I'm not gonna let that fucker kill us.
How bad is my face? It's always looked bad to me.
Fuck you.
I thought you guys loved your plastic surgery.
I'm gay, not rich.
Although I would love to take a scalpel to the Druid right about now.
Yeah? [GRUNTS.]
Yeah, you and me both.
That fucker will probably gas us again.
There's gotta be a deadbolt on the other side of this door.
The door's locked.
A padlock.
It's got a keyhole.
Maybe it's a sewer.
And maybe it's a way out.
There's gotta be something.
There's gotta be something.
What'd you find? [GRUNTS.]
I found a nail.
We're so fucked.
You gonna attack the Druid with a fuckin' nail? - Oh, my God, we are so fucked.
- No.
I'm gonna pick that fuckin' lock.
I took a survivalist course for a month in the militia.
- Everything's a resource.
- Uh, why? For killing all the non-whites? Huh? It's to survive.
No one else is gonna help me.
This might work.
Police! [SIGHS.]
Police! I'd like to talk to you for a few minutes.
It hurts so much.
Hey, I'm gonna get the fuck outta here, and I'm gonna kill the fucker who put us down here.
Serial killers are all white.
- No, they're not.
- Name one, not white.
What kind of backwards-ass racism is that? Oh, you're so easy to piss off.
Yeah? Well, I've got a lot to be angry about.
- Yeah, I suppose.
- And what about you, huh? Why are you such a fuckin' angry pain in the ass? Hey.
Come on now.
- Come on now.
- I'm just I'm just thinking.
What are you thinking there, genius? I expect better.
That's it? You expect better.
Out of them? Or the world, or you? All of All of the above, I guess.
I feel the same fuckin' way.
Hey, hey, hey, hey! Hey! Hey, come on.
Come on now.
Don't pass out on me, all right? We are gonna get the fuck outta here and we're gonna get all fixed up.
And then we're gonna drink a shitload of beers.
Then we're gonna have a laugh about all this, especially my friends when I walk into the bar with you.
I think the guys might've thought you were my boyfriend.
- I really do.
I think you're right.
- Where's Saadia? - She's in her apartment.
You left her alone? I can't help her all the time.
I'm not good at it.
It never works out, anyways.
- [MRS.
Those poor kids.
- Huh? Jen and Connor.
- Who? - [SCOFFS.]
The kids down the hall, Frank.
They go to school with Erica.
That poor woman burning herself to death like that.
Jesus, stop going on about it.
Look, she was a psycho, and we're all lucky she wanted to put on such a big show.
How can you say that? Because if she'd burned herself in the building, we could've all been fucking killed.
So? So, let's thank God for making this broad so desperate for attention that she chose a big stage instead of the apartment - that we share a wall with.
- You are so fucking heartless, do you know that? - Thank you, Justine! - Stop it! No, thank you for being such a showboating, fucking whack job! She'll hear you! [GROANS.]
That crispy bitch and that dead druggie brought the cops around here all the time.
What do you think that does for my fuckin' business? Your business? You don't give a shit about anybody.
What? - Mrs.
Dixon, are you okay? - You don't talk to my wife.
We can hear everything through the wall.
Okay, then go back home, put on your headphones, and listen to your shitty rap music, because I'm gonna do whatever the fuck I want in the privacy of my own home.
- Are you okay, Mrs.
Dixon? - Oh, the fucking balls on this guy.
Do you know who the fuck you are talking to? Frank, he's been through a lot.
Maybe you should Maybe you should just shut your fucking [SCREAMS.]
Oh, no.
Oh, no.
What did you do? You need to run home right now and lock the door You should take this.
- It used to belong to my mom.
- You need to go.
It looks just like an old phone.
I know you might think you're helping, but he's just gonna be twice as mad tomorrow, okay? So you go home and you don't come back, all right? All right, you hear me? Just stay out of here, all right? Just stay the fuck out of it! [INDISTINCT SHOUTING.]
Oh What are you doing? It's not safe here.
We need protection.
What does Kaili Greenberg need protection from? Hmm.
It's too late for her.
This is for us.
- You think someone's inside her apartment? - Hmm.
We've been inside, all over.
Hey, hey.
We caught the killer.
Have you seen him before? No, but I know who did.
Who? Everyone he killed.
The last thing they saw.
Where have you been today? Hmm.
I've been here all day.
Day and night, night and day, light and dark, dark and darker.
If I would've seen him, I would know him.
Do you? You're here a lot, too.
Where were you specifically? - Am I under investigation? - I want to know what you were doing.
I made the kids breakfast, I salted the doors, I worked on Kaili's door.
I was here all the time.
Ask any of the residents.
They would've seen me.
They pretend they don't, but they do.
Have you seen Mr.
Lopez, or Ms.
Chao, or Mr.
Olensky around? They're not answering their doors.
I want to show them the photo.
Now I see why you're saying you caught the Druid.
- Why is that? - 'Cause it gets you off the hook.
You promised justice, but all you bring us are these pictures, these pretty little pictures.
Well, let me take you home.
If you're so sure he's the killer why are you showing that picture to everyone? 'Cause deep down inside, you know.
You know he's not the guy.
Oh, my God! Hello? Miss Chao, I'd like to talk to you, please! It's the police! I'm sorry to bother you again today, but we just arrested a suspect.
We're going door to door, asking residents [GROANS.]
- Fuck! - What What hap What happened? - The fuckin' nail snapped.
It's stuck.
What the fuck are you laughing at? I'm so I'm sorry.
We're gonna get outta here! Mark my fuckin' word, we're gonna get outta here! [GROANS.]
I've seen him, yeah.
- Where? - Hanging out at Xander's.
And maybe the school.
Yeah, lurking across the street.
He's always staring at the girls.
Pretty creepy.
Hey are you done bothering us? I was just returning your stepmother to the apartment.
She can walk the halls if she wants.
Okay? They're our halls.
She has more of a right to be here than you do.
She was carving symbols in Kaili's door.
With a knife.
He cut Kaili open so all her sins could spill out.
Why does she know this? - That might be my fault.
- I'm really - sorry to have bothered you again.
- That's all you do! You bother us all the time! I mean, you haven't done a thing for my mother! I tried.
- I did everything I could.
Yeah, okay, great, thanks! - I'm over it now, so thank you.
- Connor, you're upsetting Amber.
I bet you're gonna fuck this one up, too.
It took you a year to catch this guy.
A year! I'm really sorry to have bothered you.
My apologies.
Here, lay down.
Here you go.
- You want your sounds tonight? - Yes, please.
It's all over.
They caught the Druid.
You don't have to worry anymore.
You take such good care of me.
You're the only good thing in my life.
Things will get better.
I miss your mom.
Us, too.
Good night.
I love you.
- What the hell was that? - What? Yelling at a cop? She finally did something good for us.
- She caught the Druid.
- You know what, man? I don't care.
Fuck her.
I don't want you running off and doing anything stupid.
- I won't.
- Okay? Promise? I won't.
Fuck! We can finally live normal, happy lives.
Keep your shit tight.
Remember? - Oh, my shit's always tight.
- Mm-hmm.
Hello! [ROBERTA.]
Pujit, meet me out front.
I'm smelling cleaner everywhere.
- Don't tell me somebody else got killed.
- We think we caught him.
- Where are you guys going? - We're going to my mother's.
Yeah, everyone here has just been so shitty.
None of these people care about anything that's happened to us.
Have you seen him around? No, I've never seen that piece of shit.
You? Was he crazy? Why'd he kill my dad? Honey, your dad wasn't big on making friends.
Was he in the business? We think it's tied up with the Kit Jennings murder last year.
- Yeah, Frank saw that happen.
- He didn't tell me much.
Are you surprised? I told him he was being stupid, but there you go.
Did he tell you anything else? Like what he looked like, how tall he was? No, just that he was wearing that costume, and he put a big, bloody knife up in his face.
Scared the shit out of Frank.
Not that he'd ever admit it.
- Mom.
We got a long drive ahead of us.
I guess you still got my number? - Yeah, I have it.
- Thanks.
Hey! - Were the cleaners here today? - [KATE SCOFFS.]
Around here, that would be four times a year.
The kid's blood was in the hall for weeks.
I don't think it's been cleaned in, what, a month or more? You give me a call if you need anything.
I don't think we're coming back.
Singh, I'm grabbing some Luminol.
Gonna check for blood spatter.
Call me when you're free.
- Can't sleep.
- Girl, why you even trying? I just put Amber to bed.
You wanna crash on the couch? So we start the night off at some crazy Bacchic festival.
Now we're ending it with a sleepover.
You are officially a party monster.
Who says "Bacchic"? What are your jam-jams? - Jam-jams? Like music? - Your pajamas, your comfies.
It's what my mom called them.
What do you like to sleep in? Shorts? Sweatpants? - Sweats, please.
- Mm.
- Try the football shirt.
See? And if you walk around in your underwear, it does the whole skirt thing.
I am not sitting around your house in my underwear.
- Connor.
- Connor is asleep.
- But he likes you, though.
- Is that weird? You two make total sense.
It doesn't bother me.
You'd still be my bestie.
Obviously, thanks.
- Mm-mm.
- [SIGHS.]
He's so shy.
Yep, but he's more relaxed around you than anyone.
Has he had many girlfriends? Just earlier, I felt like he was trying to kiss me.
- Maybe this is a little weird.
What's it like? To kiss? Wow.
Se Seriously? Okay.
It's pretty great with a good kisser, and pretty shitty with an aggressive tongue attacker.
- Ew.
- But when it's good, it's it's warm and sweet, you know? It's It's nice.
I don't think anyone hates kissing.
I know it's not a big deal for most, but, it's huge in my culture.
I don't know if a guy would be willing to wait for me.
I'd have to really know the guy is worth the kiss.
You know? Like, trust him completely.
And you're feeling that with Connor? I am.
Connor's a good guy.
He's been so off lately.
I don't know if it's me or - today, or - It's not you.
Every day, we're getting closer to the anniversary of our mom's passing.
- The solstice party, the murders - Right, of course.
Here I am whining about him and asking you about kissing.
No, it's okay.
You're helping him.
You really are.
I didn't even think he was gonna come to the party.
He's tough he's also sensitive.
Oh! - You like that about him.
- [SIGHS.]
He is really sweet.
- And so cute.
- I think he looks like a total dork but I get it.
I get it.
Okay Choices.
What exactly have you done? - [ROBERTA.]
We've issued warnings.
- Warnings? To all the residents in the building.
- That's all you're gonna do? - I'm afraid that's all we can do.
They should be arrested.
They should go to jail! We have no proof, nothing to press charges on.
We might be able to apply a public-mischief charge - on Dan Olensky.
- [AMBER.]
You might? There are no cameras in the building.
No way of verifying it, no matter how certain you are.
It's him.
Of all the awful things that have been done to us, - we know that this one was him! - You know that.
And I know that.
But you didn't actually see him doing it.
Without that, it'll just get thrown out.
He was standing there gloating! Rubbing it in our faces! - I'm sorry we can't do more - They killed my wife! They bullied her until she killed herself! She fucking, fucking killed herself! She fucking killed herself! [SOBS.]
You don't give a shit.
We're the ones who have to live with it! - It's gonna be okay.
- and the name-calling.
Every fucking day! Every fucking day! [SOBS.]
If I could just turn it a little bit more.
It worked! Yes! Motherfuckin' yes! Oh, my God, Dan! Yes! Come on, come on, come on, let's go! Come on, Dan! Come on! Come on, Dan! [INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
- Come on, yes, yes! - [GROANS.]
No, dude.
Old school, they used to actually have real pieces of bubblegum in the ice cream.
Now they put, like, white chocolate or something, I don't know.
- You love bubble gum.
I heard talking.
Saadia was nervous about staying home alone tonight, so I'm offering her the couch.
- You have to be okay with that.
- Mm-hmm.
Thank you.
It's a scary place.
I'm just gonna go and get some blankets and a pillow.
I'll be back in a minute.
Okay? I'm sorry about how I acted earlier today.
It's okay.
I'm sorry.
Do you want some of my tea? It'll help you sleep.
No, thanks.
I I think I'm good.
I stopped drinking it a day ago.
Don't tell anyone.
Maybe that's not such a good idea.
Maybe that's why things have been bothering you so much.
They're drugging me! - Who is? - Connor and Jen.
They think they can control me, but no one can.
Oh, I don't think they would want to do that.
They hate me.
I spill their fucking tea down the drain.
No one's going to stop me from what I have to do, from what I have planned.
Everything okay? Mm-hmm.
Good night, sweetheart.
What did Amber do this time? She thinks you're drugging her.
We are.
Her doctor prescribed it.
Amber doesn't sleep if we don't.
She'll be up three days straight, being all shitty and scattered with everyone.
Trust me.
Oh, my God! [SOBS.]
Mom! [SOBS.]
Why didn't you do anything? - Why didn't you stop her? - I didn't know! I didn't know! - Why didn't you put out the flames? - I didn't know! Why? Why? [SOBS.]
- Stop it! - Why? Why? - Please, stop it! - Why? Why? Please, why? Why didn't you stop her? Why didn't you Connor, come back from the edge, please! It wasn't your fault! - I could've stopped her.
- Nobody could have! - We should have.
- We didn't know it was going to happen! - Please, just come back from the edge.
I just want to die where she died.
If you knew, you would've stopped her, Connor! - You would have! You're her son! - [SIRENS WAILING IN DISTANCE.]
Mom was strong! In her own fucked-up way, she was a fighter! Fight.
Oh, my! I'm sorry.
- [CRIES.]
It's okay.
I'm such a fuck-up.
No, you're not a fuck-up.
You're not.
Don't say that.
I miss her so much.
I know.
But what would she want you to do? That's what you live for.
And if you ever feel like this - feel like doing anything crazy - I feel crazy all the time.
Then you come and grab me.
Okay? I miss her, too.
And if you jumped, I would just - I would jump right after you.
- No.
You can never do that.
I couldn't stand losing you, Connor.
I'm sorry.
I won't fuck up again, I promise.
You're not a fuck-up.
You you keep me strong through all of this.
You teach me how to get through everything so, let me help you.
- Yeah.
- We keep our shit tight for each other.
Okay? - Okay.
- [SIGHS.]
Pujit You there? If you don't have your radio on again, you're gonna get a damn suspension.
What the fuck? What the fuck? [FLIES BUZZING.]
Please, I can't.
I can't.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
Hello? - Hello? - [ROBERTA.]
Police! Identify yourself.
You did nothing.
You didn't do anything! But No! [SOBS.]
You left us.
You left us! [GRUNTS.]
You abandoned us! [SOBS.]
