Spectros (2020) s01e04 Episode Script

Come to Mamma

1 A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES Does this also happen to your dad? I tried everything to get rid of the voices in my head.
Being unconscious was the best way.
Have some water.
Can I ask two questions? How long was I out for? Not long.
- No big deal.
- Yeah, right.
My legs are still shaking.
And when was the last time you washed your bedding? I'm afraid I'll catch something just from looking at it.
See? She's all better now.
Back to being a bitch.
But seriously.
What happened to you? I don't know.
Now I know why your dad drinks.
- That's not why he drinks.
- How do you know? You sure the suspect is in? Honey, I'm like a mother to those kids.
They have no one looking out for them.
Great mom, huh? Turning her kids in.
- Sh! - Such high morals.
Sweetie, this momma's gotta eat.
- What was that? - We're fucked! Let's go! Police! - Freeze! - Police! - Freeze! - Police! Fuck! Run! Run! I'm trying.
Damn it.
We're good.
Now what? Where are we going? - Why are you asking me? - 'Cause you should know.
- But I don't.
- How come? I don't fucking know.
- You got us into this, you get us out.
- I didn't get anyone anywhere.
And I'm not getting anyone out.
- We trusted you.
- I didn't.
Hey, what's your problem? First you won't go out with me because I'm a bad guy.
Now I'm not bad enough to get you out of this shit? I'm never going to be the guy you want me to be.
I am what I am.
I'm not asking you to be anything.
We're in this shit, but we stick together.
But we can't just keep running away.
As long as the cops are after us, we gotta run.
This other stuff happening is way worse than the cops.
What you talking about? You know what I mean.
I don't believe in ghosts.
Are we really having this conversation again? Do you believe in them? - In ghosts? - Yeah.
I do.
You know what? I don't fucking care.
Ghosts are just people except they're dead.
And people are bastards.
They will harm others, dead or alive.
If you don't believe in ghosts, why are you so scared? I am scared, just not of ghosts.
The problem is that my dad His whole life I'll talk to her.
I left my dad behind.
He needed me.
He still needs you.
He's heard voices all these years.
And I let him down.
Calm down.
I called him a drunk, yelled at him.
Now he's gone.
He's not gone.
He must be somewhere.
We're gonna find him.
Then you'll talk to each other and figure it out.
Tell him everything you need to.
What would I say? I don't know, Mila, figure it out.
You're his daughter.
You know best.
Pardal Let's go after my dad.
I've never heard so many voices at the same time.
- Focus on one at a time.
- It's confusing.
Use your mind to find who you've lost.
It's too loud.
It hurts.
That's because you've never tried sober.
Of course it hurts.
The voices you hear are the cries of the dead.
I can feel their anguish and despair.
The dead don't want to come back, just as the living don't want to die.
And who's forcing them? The Necromancer.
He's our real enemy.
So the dead are not the enemy? They are just pawns, victims of a game they can’t control.
A game they also fear, especially now that the ashes are not protected.
Enough talking.
Try to focus.
I miss my daughter.
Then find the ashes! The dead are all over the neighborhood.
Find the ashes, and you will find your daughter.
Hurry while I’m still alive.
We’re running out of time.
I grow older with every second that I'm apart from the ashes.
Did you hear that? What? Any news? Did he spit it out? No.
I SAW A GHOST ON THE BRIDGE - What the hell is that? - Um, the kid's got a theory.
About what, kid? Never mind.
Officer, I need to pee.
Hold it in.
I had, like, six sodas.
What are we running, a day-care center? The kid was thirsty.
- Please.
My bladder's exploding.
- Fine.
Go on.
Go ahead, kid.
But be quick.
Officer permission to take a leak? I wanna know what you're doing here.
I got arrested.
Just like you.
You work for Zeca? He pays me.
Zeca's a joke.
But his money's not.
You're pissed just because I did what you told me to do.
"Be like me," you said.
That's what I'm doing.
I snuck out, I told lies, and now I'm in jail.
Just like you.
I never told you to do that.
So what did you mean? You have no job.
You work gigs for assholes in the Chinese mafia.
And you expect me to sit at home and do my homework? Nobody trusts you, Pardal.
You're a liar.
A fucking liar! But I did what you wanted.
I'm in jail just like you.
- Fuck you! - Show some respect.
Keep it down.
None of this would've happened if Mom was here.
She'll be back.
Stop lying to me! Stop! - She will.
- Stop lying to me! Easy.
I'm sorry.
What happened to your mom? Do you know why she left? - You don't have to talk about it.
- About what? Your mom.
I totally get it.
I don't talk about my dad.
She'll be back.
Leo needs to believe it.
My mother lives for the church and decided that her life's goal is to prevent me from sinning.
At least she's not a drunk.
It wouldn't be so bad if she drank once in a while.
Good news is that if we get out of this mess, we’ll grow up, have kids and fuck with their heads.
But on our terms.
So, no worries.
Fair enough.
Come on.
Let's go.
Your brother He’s a bit wacky, isn’t he? What are you saying? Well he's your brother.
So what? You think I care? That we're close? Fuck him.
You’ll break, my friend.
Sooner or later, all punks screw up.
I've broken real men.
So imagine a kid like you! Want to know my secret, asshole? I find that soft spot that everyone has, and I crack it wide open, without mercy.
We can't hide here.
We're just eating.
I gotta pee.
Just order me anything, please.
Is it what you expected? What? For our first date? Can I help you? Hi, I'll have Three combos with fries, please.
You cut me off, order my food for me.
What else? Are you crazy? Then order the most expensive thing on the menu.
Do you have money? Stolen, I bet.
Wanna eat or not, princess? Don't call me princess! It's useless.
You must try again.
I can't find my daughter with my mind.
Are you giving up? I didn't say that.
But this isn't the way.
To find Mila, I need to reach into my heart.
Your heart does not think.
It's your mind that controls everything.
You've never loved anyone, Zenobia.
Love, Celso? This is a matter of magic.
It's a matter of finding another way within my heart.
The most profound happiness I ever felt with Mila was when she was a baby.
If I could reach that feeling, I’d connect with her again.
And what if you're wrong? My time is almost up.
- Am I interrupting something? - No.
Don't turn around, guys.
But we gotta get out of here.
- Easy.
- Easy.
One at a time.
This way.
Come! Yo! Stop right there.
Look who we found.
We've been looking for you.
Here I am.
I'm not hiding.
You should be hiding.
Isao's pissed.
- At me? - No, at us.
Because of you, asshole.
That's even worse for you.
What's with the doll? Some kind of antique? You hit Zenobia's.
That was our job.
- You told me to go.
- And you screwed it up.
Now he's pissed at us, you little shit.
He mentioned an antique doll.
That must be it.
It's my doll.
Shut up! Give it to us! Hand it over while we're still being nice.
Hand it over! - Bitch! - Get them! Stop them! Fuck! Stop! - Where did they go? - How could they vanish? Fuck! They're gone.
They can't see us.
Let's go round.
Let's go.
I've been expecting you.
Come closer.
Let's talk.
The three of you pissed off some very powerful people when you took that thing.
What thing? Sweetie, you're holding the most powerful artifact in the whole of Liberdade.
You just don't know it yet.
What do you mean? What is happening to us? To her? Where's my dad? Why I can't give you all the answers.
But I recommend that you sing song number 719.
And pay attention to the lyrics.
We just have to sing a karaoke song to find out what's going on? You don't have to believe me.
It's up to you.
So many bizarre things have happened today.
Fuck it.
Girl, where do you think you're going? You told us to go to the karaoke room.
You need to pay.
How much? Not a penny.
I don't care for money.
Momma gets paid in secrets.
What secrets? Your personal secrets.
The darker, the better.
You go first.
I try to be perfect because I'm afraid of what will happen if I stop.
When I let my anger out There's so much anger I can barely hold it in.
And it keeps growing.
Then I blame everyone for holding me back, but it's not on my father, the school, or anyone else.
It’s on me.
I suppress myself.
Drink it.
I think my mom is right.
If I refuse? Just go back to the streets.
My kid brother is all I have in the world.
I think he'd have a better future without me.
HIS FUTURE WILL BE BETTER WITHOUT ME Sure this is a good idea? Do you have a better one? Those guys have guns.
Well, Momma didn't try to kill us.
What was the number? Can't wait to see a song explain everything.
It would take an entire book.
I'm not singing.
Never have, never will.
It's starting.
I look back - I'm not singing alone, guys.
- I'm not singing.
I told you.
I can't undo what's been done My name is Brazil My heart is Liberdade Fuck.
My God, we're on the screen! How did we get on there? In the first grave We threw the enslaved The poor, the lonely The homeless In the second grave We threw the indigenous Reminders of those before us In the third grave We threw the Japanese Whose eyes are foreign to us The crazy, the poor There's a pile of crimes A pile of bones Until a necromancer Rose from the ground Revealing his secrets And of those who buried him The dead are here Whispering things in your ears Wandering the streets They won't stop Until their pain has become yours They'll seek revenge against the entire human race.
Only one thing can control them: the ashes hidden in the porcelain doll.
- The doll! - The doll! Yes, this one! Give us the ashes.
Give us the ashes.
Our ashes.
Our ashes.
This is not about cops and criminals, it's about the living and the dead.
So you're saying that someone is raising the dead? Yes, the Necromancer.
Imagine an army of ghosts.
And whatever was inside the doll - can control the dead.
- Can control the dead! So, Mr.
I have good news and bad news.
Which do you want first? Good it is.
You may leave.
You're free to go.
The bad news is that little brother of yours will spend a long time in juvie.
A long time.
When my daughter was little, she had trouble sleeping.
We tried everything.
Her mother would give her warm milk, I would sing her lullabies but nothing worked.
One night, in total desperation, I took her out for a walk.
The streets were loud and disturbing, but to my surprise, Mila got distracted looking at a store window filled with lucky cats.
She smiled, and eventually fell asleep.
I couldn’t tell whether it was the repetitive movement of the paws, or the mesmerizing eyes.
I could feel the happiness in her heart beating next to mine.
It's a beautiful memory.
Have you found your daughter? No.
But I know where she's going.
Then go.
Hurry! Now what? There.
Come on! Let's go inside.
Come on.
Good evening.
- Fuck! - Freeze! My doll! Hey, you! Stop! Stop, motherfucker! Take it easy.
Freeze, punk! Hands up! Hands up, motherfucker! I said hands up! - Let me go! - No need to be rough.
Let me go! Let me go! Let me go! You fascist! Let me go! What the fuck's that? Hand it over.
Give me that shit.
Turn around.
Turn around.
Go on, scumbag.
Be quiet! - No need to push.
- Shut up! I want my dad! Watch your feet.
Fucking punk! Asshole! Move it! Get in.
Get your legs inside, asshole.
Find anything? Nothing.
No weapons, no drugs.
- Just this stupid doll.
- Let me see.
You have no father, no mother.
The kid only had you to take care of him, and you did a lousy job.
I have two options for you.
Either you say goodbye to your brother or you sign a confession and tell me where the contents of the doll are.
This is the last piece of the puzzle, but I don’t know where it fits.
This is the guy they found burning alive.
Outside Zenobia’s house.
He is a security guard who died two weeks earlier.
Heart attack.
I just don’t understand how a person can die twice.
Unless he’s a ghost.
Go on.
Who possesses human bodies, dead or alive.
I saw it in a movie.
A ghost can move from body to body just by touching them.
And if that's possible, it could’ve happened to the security guy after he died.
What do you mean, Leo? So ghosts can change bodies whenever they want.
If the body is dead, they resurrect it.
Then, this evil spirit used the body to follow someone into Zenobia's house.
And when he got in there, he tried to steal the ashes.
Burn! The end.
Actually, that's not the end.
If the spirit can change bodies, then it will possess the first human body it encounters.
Go on, Leo.
It's fascinating.
[unsettling music[ It's you.
Well done.
You got me.
And I thought I was nailing it as a good cop.
I want those ashes.
They will be mine.
But first I need to make sure you won't tell anyone.
I'm going to beat you so hard that when I'm done you'll be more dead than I am.
What are you doing, man? Pardal! Help me, Pardal! Hold on, I'll help you! Freeze! Stop right Police! Freeze! Freeze! Freeze! Police! - Carla, what are you - I'll handle this.
Come on.
Let's go! - Come on! - Let's go! Let's get out of here! Freeze! Carla.
Let's go.
Let's go.
He's coming.
Let's go! Let's go! Hurry! Run! - Where is it? - Over there! Let's go! Go! Drive! Go, man! Go! Start the car, dude! Now what?
