[SOBBING AND MUMBLING] So that's okay? - You know I won't tell anyone.
- [SAADIA CHUCKLES] It's not about telling anyone.
It's about me, my values, what I believe.
But this feels nice.
I know it's just your hand, but still.
You know, I never got guys like Kit.
I mean, I liked him, but that nonstop sex-party stuff, it's just so not me.
Me neither.
[CHUCKLING] Yeah, well, that, everyone knows.
[BOTH CHUCKLING] No one would believe me if I said we did anything, so Why? What does everyone say about me? No, no.
It's just because you're so good.
And you're so bad? Well, in this building in this place pfft.
I'm a saint.
Saint Connor.
[CHUCKLING] I like it.
You know not everyone in this building is bad.
You know, my mother's death every fuckin' person in this building played a role in that.
They did.
All of them.
I mean, that cop was useless.
Xander and that fucking petition.
Dan and the spray paint, Violet and the fucking website, and that holier-than-thou asshole, Angel.
Even he shamed her, along with everyone else! I You were the only good one.
I'm not perfect.
No one is.
Oh, come on.
What's the worst you've ever done? No.
[CLEARS THROAT] You're right.
[ANTICIPATORY MUSIC] [CLATTER] Fuck.
It's 4 a.
m.
breakfast with Amber.
Better go make sure she doesn't burn the house down.
Uhm you should probably go first.
Now, if she thinks we're up to something, she'll give us a sex talk.
[LAUGHING] I went through it at 12, and that was enough.
Okay.
[SAADIA] Something smells good.
Have to make sure you're well fed and ready for school.
School's done.
We finished finals.
Now you see why I'm always so tired at school.
[SAADIA CHUCKLING] We go through, like, a dozen eggs a day.
Twelve little souls never born.
Wow.
Who's the key collector? - What'd I tell you about those? - Sorry.
Uhm they're my superintendent keys.
Amber doesn't like keys lying around.
Don't leave portals unguarded.
- What are you doing? - I cut myself.
Don't get blood in my eggs.
Can I get some water? Yeah.
- It's so hot in here.
- Yeah, yeah.
How high do you have on the oven? I'm not using the oven.
I'm using the burners.
It's the vents.
The vents are blasting heat.
In the middle of summer? [WATER RUNNING] Uh, the building.
It's got a new furnace.
I'm supposed to run it for a bit to make sure it's working everywhere.
People might hate me tonight, but they will appreciate it in the winter.
Eat up.
[GROANING AND PANTING] I'm warning you.
It's hell in here.
[GRUNTING] - DAN: Oh, God.
- [FLIES BUZZING] Ugh.
Amy.
[FLIES BUZZING] [SOBBING] Oh Oh, no What did he do to you? [SCREAMING] [JEN] Is something else going on? It's Connor.
I don't know if it's because he tried to kiss me.
Really? And I said we can't, or I can't.
I know today's been crazy, but Hey, anything that's happening is probably just because he likes you so much.
Take it easy.
Yeah, and I'm the idiot who chooses today, out of all days, to try to get closer to him.
I have terrible timing.
The worst, actually.
That's just life that does not care if you have the sweets on someone, or vice versa.
And I think it's great.
You two are like Romeo and Juliet.
- Mm-hmm.
- Love surrounded by tons of murder.
- [LAUGHTER] - Well I'm gonna make sure it's not my breath making things weird.
You know, eggs and all.
Amber's eggs make anything weird.
Psst.
Psst.
Come here a second, dearie.
Come.
Come, come, come.
Close the door.
Come here.
Now, it's 50 steps to your door, Fifty steps for you to go get me what I need.
Sorry? Do you need something from my apartment? Yeah, just something small, something your parents touch a lot.
Why would you want that? That's Cassidy's hair.
Nasrael avenging on hell.
Likes to drink.
Dan's.
That's Xander's.
And that that belongs to Amy.
- How did you get these? - Oh! That's Kaili's.
That's a good one.
- [SAADIA] Ugh! - Menstrual blood is powerful.
Liquid moon and crimson light.
Why do you have all this? Well, they threw it all away.
Why shouldn't I have it? It's disgusting.
No, no, it's full of life.
Can't you feel it? Close your eyes and feel the energy, the life force the blood, the hair, skin.
Wait.
Are those our apartments? Is that my apartment? I only curse the bad.
The Druid does the dirty work.
You know who the Druid is? I might've conjured him, or her.
And I hope it's a her.
No, no, no, don't worry.
It's just the bad ones.
Miss Greenberg was good.
- No.
- And Xander.
And Cassidy, no matter how mean she was, she didn't deserve to die.
You know that they were excrement.
Lost.
Evil.
[GASPS] Jen just gave that to me.
If you're a really good girl, I'll give it back.
Unless, of course, you deserve to be here with everyone else.
- [SAADIA GASPING] - [AMBER LAUGHING] What did you forget? - Uh - You leaving? Yeah, I think so.
It's too hot in here.
What is it? Amber, she's I'm gonna go turn off the furnace, okay? What did Amber do? [PANTING] Was Amber bothering you? Your Your step-mom, she collects things from the residents.
[SIGHING] I I know.
We've tried to stop her.
- She take something that belongs to you? - My toothbrush, right after I'd just used it.
It was still wet.
The toothbrush is nothing.
She was taking some of my used cotton swabs the other day.
She thinks she's putting a curse on everyone that lives here.
- I know, but it's just talk.
- Really? Well, how do we know it's just talk? People are dying.
Amber's just She likes to walk around the halls.
- She gets stir crazy.
- She's not the fucking killer.
I mean Frank's head was chopped off with an axe.
Look, if they arrested someone, it means they have proof, fingerprints, a weapon, whatever.
Why the hell are they still knocking on our doors in the middle of the night? [PANTING] Jen Look Amber is crazy.
She's angry crazy.
And, Connor, she has our stuff in there too, along with all the stuff she stole from the people that she hates.
- And most every one of them is dead now.
- Oh, fuck.
We have to go.
Okay, you two go to Saadia's apartment, lock yourselves in.
When you're gone, I'll slip out and I'll turn off the furnace - so this place doesn't burn down.
- And then, Connor, please, - we all need to get out of here.
- Okay, done.
[ANTICIPATORY MUSIC] [KEYS JINGLING] [SOFT MEOWING] - [PLAINTIVE MEOWING] - That's Auggie.

What's he doing outside? [DOOR UNLOCKING AND OPENING] [CLUCKING] Poor Auggie.
That smell.
What is that? Hey, it is four in the morning? Auggie's her life.
She just lost Xander.
She doesn't need to lose him too.
Amy! [JINGLING] Why do you have a key to Amy and Xander's place? I cat-sat for them.
- Amy? - [MEOWING] Amy, are you asleep? Huh.
- What? - Something's weird.
- What's? - It's spotless.
So what's yours like? No, you don't get it.
Their bathroom was like some Third World outhouse.
Oh.
Did Amber have anything of Amy's? - A bar of soap.
- Yeah, right, I saw that.
Okay, okay, before we freak out if I was Amy, I wouldn't want to be anywhere around this place.
She's probably with his family.
- Where's your mom, Auggie? - [PURRING] That fuckin' kid, he's got a saw, he's got a fucking axe.
We should make some noise, lure him in here.
With his axe? Not a good idea.
When he loads the bigger body parts into the furnace, he staggers a bit, he stumbles.
If he ditches the saw and the axe We could surprise jump him there.
Let's go fuck this kid up.
Jam-jams? Hmm Don't ask for a football jersey.
Ah.
[LAUGHING] Mm.
Your hair's gorgeous.
Thanks.
So is yours.

Today's been crazy.
You having the hots for my brother? [CHUCKLES] I held your brother's hand.
Oh, my gosh, you are too cute.
[LAUGHTER] I told him I want to kiss him one day.
Are you sure you don't want to kiss a fish first, just to make sure? - Stop.
- [JEN LAUGHING] I'm just looking out for you.
[SIGHS] Man, it's still so hot in here.
You think the furnace is broken? I don't know how he got the superintendent job.
- I don't know if he knows what he's doing.

You can tell me anything! - No, you don't want to know! - Yes, I do! Tell me! What is it? Your brother's burning bodies in the furnace! [SOBBING] No, you're crazy! - It's just - No, it's the truth.
It can't be.
He wouldn't do that.
He wouldn't he wouldn't hurt anyone.
He has keys to everyone's apartments.
He's been acting strange.
You said it yourself! The anniversary of your mother's death is coming up.
They caught the Druid.
They arrested him! Then they have the wrong guy! Or Connor's helping him! My brother? The guy you're crazy about? Now you're blaming everyone! You sound Saadia, you're losing your mind.
He hated everyone who's dead.
Please, Jen, we have to go.
He is my brother! I would know.
Plus, he was with us half the times that the murders happened.
He came after me at school in the parking lot.
Why the fuck would he try to kill me? Saadia, please.
You know Connor wouldn't do any of that.
Do you smell that? Tell me, when have you ever smelled anything like that before? Think, Jen! My mom.
We're getting out of here right now.
We need to call 911 right now.
[CRYING] Give me your phone.
I'll do it.

He can't go to jail.
He'll die in there.
- We have to turn him in! - Shut up! He could kill you too.
No.
Can't you see? Everyone who's dead was guilty.
Guilty of what? [TENSE MUSIC] That's my friend's apartment.
We don't get involved, Saadia.
I told you.
It's so terrible how these people treat each other.
Turn it off.
Best thing that happened around here, if you ask me.
Hey.
Hey! [WHISTLING] Need you to sign this eviction petition.
How do you guys feel about the Rijkers? Two women, two teens, one giant shit show right upstairs.
[CLEARS THROAT] Please, you're an expert with computers.
There must be a way to scrub those posts off the internet.
Look, online is forever.
People need to be accountable for what they do.
Told you.
[TENSE MUSIC] He's killing them because they robbed your family.
And you knew? [SOBBING] They drove my mother to kill herself.
That doesn't make it right! It had to happen.
