Supernatural s11e19 Episode Script

The Chitters

1 Dean: We are not the only hunters on the planet.
[ Blade clangs .]
So trusting.
Listen, I have seen more than my share of monsters.
And I mean real monsters, bad monsters.
Oh, Lucifer.
Dear nephew, my, how you've changed.
[ Whooshing .]
I think you and I need to have a nice, long chat.
[ Whoosh .]
[ Grunts .]
Uhh! You may be the one thing in all of creation that He still cares about, the one thing that could finally make him show himself.
[ Screaming .]
[ Creek trickling .]
Jesse: It finally happened.
Matty: What? You didn't get detention this week? Me and Jackie, we kissed.
Okay, can I stop hearing about him every two minutes now? "You think he likes me?" "Jackie looked at me.
I-I think he looked at me.
" He definitely likes me.
Jesse, you know you gotta be careful, right? I'm not an idiot.
Yeah, I know, but it's not just Ned and Charlie and those dicks who'll stomp your head in.
I mean, everybody at school and in town they won't leave you alone.
I wish we were gone already.
Can't you lie and say you're 18 and get a fake ID? California's expensive, okay? We just gotta save some more money.
You can sell your collection.
I will, okay? When it's time.
I can get at least $900 for the Buffalo nickel and another $400 for the double eagle.
That's a lot.
Look, Jess As soon as I turn 18, I promise, we're gonna get out of here, okay? Can I see it? Yeah.
[ Cooler clatters .]
Come on.
Gotta go get that early morning bite, right? Hang on.
I gotta pee.
[ Tackle box clatters .]
[ Rattling and buzzing .]
[ Birds calling .]
[ Rattling and buzzing .]
[ Rustling .]
Matty? Matty? [ Rattling and buzzing .]
Jesse! Aah! Matty! Matty! [ Rattling and buzzing .]
Jesse! Aah! Jesse! Jesse! [ Grunts .]
Aah! Matty! Matty! Matty! Matty! [ Breathing heavily .]
[ Rattling and buzzing continues .]
Supernatural 11x19 The Chitters @elderman [ Utensil clinks .]
Dude, you even move since last night? Sleeping is the new smoking.
What? No, it's not.
It's sitting.
Sitting is the new smoking.
That can't be right.
Dean, we'll find Cass, okay? He's stronger than he looks.
You know, we gambled with Cass, and now Amara has him.
For a reason, which means he's still alive.
I've been with Amara.
Her beef is with the big guys -- with God, with Lucifer.
The small fries, even an angel like Cass, doesn't even register.
And if it meant hurting Lucifer, killing Cass would mean nothing to her.
It's been a week.
We've still got no leads.
You think I don't know that? So [ Sighs .]
[ Utensil clinks .]
So we get back out there.
We get back to work.
We keep moving.
We keep working.
We'll catch a break on Cass.
We have to.
It's -- it's karma.
You know, karma's been kicking us in the teeth lately.
[ Sighs .]
So [ Bowl thuds .]
let's kick it back.
Check this out.
Libby Strauss.
Uh, went missing near Gunnison, Colorado.
Now Libby's friend claimed she was carried off by a mutant creature with green eyes.
Demon? That's what I thought, but it gets better.
The friend chased after 'em and she found Libby, only it wasn't Libby anymore because now she, too, is a green-eyed mutant.
Demon swap suits? Only one way to find out.
[ Tires squeal, engine revs .]
Dean: How many missing do you have? Six, all in the last 48 hours.
They're disappearing one by one.
Okay, uh, let's start with Libby Strauss.
I understand that she was from out of town.
Uh, she and a friend were visiting from Tucson.
Libby was the first reported missing.
But all the rest have been local? All residents.
You got any leads? The only eyewitness I have is the friend.
Not the most reliable source.
Why is that? She and Libby were on the last legs of their cannabis tasting tour.
Fumes still coming off the girl when I questioned her.
A trippin' trip.
[ Chuckles .]
Have you had anything odd like this happen around here before? [ Sighs .]
27 years ago.
About a dozen residents went missing.
27 years before that, another 8 disappeared.
All within the same time frame? Couple days? Same time of year, too.
And how far back do the disappearances go? That's it.
The town's only been here since the '50s.
It was all virgin forest till they found coal here.
So then how do people explain the missing? Mostly they don't.
People come and go in this town.
I've only been here two years, myself.
There are some old-timers with their theories.
Such as? Town's built on an Indian burial ground.
Forest folk are pissed because we stole their coal.
And what's your take? We're a small town.
People get bored, they get fed up, they leave.
Once a few get free, it's like a jail break.
Encourages the others.
Every 27 years like clockwork? Honestly, I-I'm just focused on the missing that I have right now.
You're welcome to take a look at the files, talk to the witness.
[ Inhales deeply .]
I've got panicked residents I need to talk down.
[ Indistinct conversations .]
What the hell is going on here? No idea.
Whatever it is, it's moved in.
[ Door closes .]
Or keeps coming back for seconds.
[ Inhales deeply .]
All right, I'll go check the reports on the other missing.
I guess that leaves me Ganja Girl.
[ Water trickling.]
You're gonna say I was hallucinating.
The weed was laced with PCP or something.
[ Indistinct conversations .]
It's okay, Cori, just -- just tell me what you remember.
And nothing is too strange or weird to mention.
The thing that took Libby was naked and pale.
Except for the eyes.
I swear to God, they flashed green for a second.
And it didn't have any hair.
It was shaped like a man.
Or was it a woman? Was it a man or a woman? It didn't have a A penis? It didn't have anything.
What, you're saying it was junkless? Completely.
Okay, uh anything else unusual you can remember? Sounds? Smells? Definitely sound.
When I found Libby, she was just standing there shivering, shaking.
It was creepy.
[ Rattling and buzzing .]
[ Breathing shakily .]
Libby? What happened? [ Hisses and growls .]
[ Screams .]
It wasn't Libby.
I don't know what it was.
The buzzing was coming from her body? We heard the same sound right before that thing jumped out at us.
Green eyes, buzzing.
Weed alone doesn't conjure up that kind of scenario.
[ Inhales deeply .]
Isn't that right, Sam? Dude, I was 18.
It was college.
It was probably oregano anyways.
You're an idiot.
Look, I'm coming up empty also.
Uh, nothing on Junkless or the green-eyed shaker.
So we think Junkless turned Libby? Hold up.
We're not actually gonna go with "Junkless" on this, are we? Eh.
Dude, that's a new low, even for us.
Well, something happened.
You got the eyes, the buzzing.
Yeah, I know you're right.
That can't be a coincidence.
Uh, here, I found this.
The, uh, the sheriff who was here in '89, Cochran.
Those are his notes.
There's no mention of buzzing.
But he seemed to be closing in on some of the missing, and then his notes, they just kind of abruptly stop.
He take a flyer, too? No.
He remained sheriff for a few more months.
He ended up resigning and, uh, then he fell off the radar.
I asked around the station, but that was a few sheriffs ago.
So Nothing? The dispatcher said she thought he moved to Florida, but that was a dead end.
Kind of like this case.
[ Telephone rings in distance .]
Wait a second.
[ Papers rustle .]
Most of the witnesses in '89 and '62, they're all dead or they've moved away, but there does seem to be one holdout from the '89 case.
Etta Fraser.
Let's go talk to Etta.
Your husband was one of the people who disappeared in 1989.
Oh, my second husband.
Barely that.
[ Chuckles .]
Pete only stuck around a couple months.
So he left voluntarily? Oh.
[ Chuckles .]
Pete was volunteering himself all over the place.
Right before he disappeared, people saw Pete diddling two different women in public, separate occasions.
You mean they actually saw him in the act? What does "diddling" mean to you? Uh, Pete was never a showman, but apparently, Doris Kagen and Missy Petersen brought out the hog in him.
Doris and Melissa -- uh, Missy -- they disappeared that year, too.
Oh, yeah.
Surprise, surprise.
I'd bet my mortgage Pete ran off with one of 'em.
But you reported him as missing.
Well, he didn't come home for three days.
I thought he was dead in a ditch somewhere.
We didn't find out about the women for a long time after.
[ Inhales deeply .]
[ Sniffs .]
Is that is that white sage? Mm.
Yeah, you know your herbs.
You, uh, planning on taking a trip? Uh, yeah.
I'm going to stay with my sister a few weeks.
For any reason? You're gonna think it's real out there.
Well, you'd be surprised at the kind of crazy we hear.
Well when Pete went missing, and we found out about the women, my grandma said that he "got the chitters.
" According to her, once a generation around the spring equinox, people in town start going nuts, having orgies, copulating in the woods.
And then they disappear, never to be heard from again.
Well, that's certainly one explanation for Pete.
[ Chuckles .]
I never really, um, believed what she said, but now people are disappearing again.
She always said burn sage to protect yourself.
So why did she call it "the chitters"? Oh, that was the word Gran used to describe the sound coming from the woods when the orgies were happening.
Yeah, kind of a buzzing, rattling.
Did your Gran ever mention something about, uh, green eyes? Oh, yeah.
Gran said that if you got the chitters, you get so revved up with lust that your eyes would shine like emeralds.
Uh So we got spring equinox.
Which was yesterday.
Orgies, buzzing green-eyed freaks.
[ Dog barks .]
Sounds like a rager.
All right, let's pick up a six-pack.
Just six? Oh, whatever.
Let's hit the books.
[ Dog barking .]
[ Siren wailing in distance .]
Just don't be a wuss.
It's faster this way.
And it smells like a urinal, but whatevs.
[ Rattling and buzzing .]
[ Woman moans .]
[ Rattling growl .]
[ Hisses .]
[ Screams .]
Come on! [ Rattling and buzzing .]
[ Both scream .]
[ Screams .]
[ Boy screaming, man growling .]
[ Siren wailing .]
We ran, and then another one with green eyes came from nowhere.
It was Coach Hollister.
Grant Hollister? He attacked us.
He had these teeth that were pointed.
He ripped into Cliff.
I could hear him screaming, butI ran.
[ Crying .]
He killed Cliff.
Did you, by chance, recognize the couple? It was one of the Deaver brothers -- the tall one -- and Mrs.
You're sure about this? Did you see anybody else? I couldn't see their faces, but I'm pretty sure there was more of them down the alley, past the couple.
I-I could see them moving around.
The, uh, the couple that -- that wasgoing at it, would you say this was a orgy-like situation? I'venever seen an orgy.
No? Enough.
Excuse us a second.
[ Clears throat .]
[ Telephone rings .]
[ Train whistle blowing in distance .]
I got a dead kid minus a chunk out of his neck and all the people that girl ID'ed are missing.
Were missing.
Yeah, now they're all having sex with each other.
Then there's that.
Putting aside the fact that Rob the fireman is screwing the librarian, and I am friends with his pregnant wife, now I've got two witnesses claiming they sawwhat? I don't even know.
Aliens? Attacking people.
What is this? Spanish Fly gone bad? Well, I can honestly say this is a new one for us.
I gotta go contact the families.
[ Mouths word .]
[ Sighs .]
So we have confirmed orgy-ish behavior.
Yeah, just like Etta's husband.
What, the chitters? Well, we should go check the crime scene.
[ Cellphone rings, beeps .]
Agent Lewis.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Cori, calm down.
Where exactly? All right, I'm on my way.
[ Beep .]
Ganja Girl's pretty hysterical.
Says she just saw her friend walking in the woods.
She's too freaked out to go, so You go.
I'll grab the alley.
[ Sighs heavily .]
[ Rattling and buzzing .]
Libby? [ Rattling and buzzing stop .]
Hey, Libby, there's a whole lot of people looking for you.
[ Hisses .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Hissing .]
[ Head thuds .]
Uhh! [ Panting .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Squishing .]
You hurt? No, I'm -- I'm -- I'm good.
[ Grunts .]
Jesse, I think it's dead.
[ Breathing heavily .]
Just making sure.
Who the hell are you guys? You wouldn't believe us.
[ Birds chirping .]
[ Blues music playing .]
[ Bottles thud, pool balls clack .]
So how long have you guys been hunting? Together? About seven years.
And we've heard of the Winchesters, but we also heard you bit it a couple years ago.
Ah, that's a long, ugly, ugly story.
Sam, hey.
Uh, Jesse and Cesar.
You guys are hunters, right? Yeah.
I'm surprised we never ran into you.
Well, we're mostly in Mexico.
Sometimes we make a run over into Texas.
Uh, nothing in the alley, by the way.
[ Bottle thuds .]
You guys have any idea what we're hunting? They're called Bisaan.
It's a kind of cicada spirit.
We couldn't find any lore on 'em.
They're rare, at least in America.
People think that they originated in Malaysia in the forests there.
[ Door opens .]
So what are they doing here? What they always do.
[ Door closes .]
Every 27 years, they come up from underground, they mate like crazy for a few days.
That generation dies off, and the whole cycle goes on repeat.
So they're reproducing? But we're -- we're dealing with townsfolk here.
I mean, they didn't just crawl out of a hole a few days ago.
This is what surfaces.
Bisaan can't reproduce on their own, so they take over a human body to do the deed.
They enter through the mouth, like a hermit crab climbing into a shell.
Only they don't care that the shell's not empty.
Well, that explains Junkless.
What about the buzzing? It's how they communicate.
It's a mating call.
And you, um kill them by taking off their heads, I see.
Seems to do the trick.
How do you guys know so much about these things? One of them took my brother 27 years ago.
[ Indistinct conversations .]
I'm sorry to hear that.
I've been waiting years to come back and have this shot at them.
So I hope you understand, I'm gonna ask you two to take a step back from this one.
Well, catch us up.
Where have you guys been? In the woods, where the action is, looking for their burrow and saving your ass.
[ Exhales .]
What? Well, one of the reasons we've been holed up in the trees is because Jesse hates the town and everyone in it.
Because they're ignorant and useless.
They didn't believe me 27 years ago, they're not gonna start now.
It's boneheaded not to be following leads in town.
Hey, nobody's stopping you from talking to the whole box of crackers.
Ah, you guys fight just like brothers.
[ Chuckles .]
Almost as bad as us.
[ Chuckles .]
Well it's more like an old married couple.
[ Chuckles .]
That's Oh.
So Yeah.
That's [ Bottle thuds .]
What's it like settling down with a hunter? Smelly, dirty.
Twice the worrying about getting ganked.
Jesse, you're from here.
Do you know anything about the sheriff, Cochran, who worked the case back in '89? That son of a bitch was incompetent.
He shut himself away years ago.
Do you know where he is? Turned tail, ran off into the hills couple towns over.
Lives like a hermit.
Can you take us there? It seems like he was honing in on some of the missing.
We need to find the burrow.
We've been beating around the woods for two days.
That's where they are.
You saw the tracks.
I can keep searching on my own.
We're losing.
Why don't I go with you? We'll start where -- where I got jumped.
How long do we have before these things are gone? We gotta find the burrow tonight.
By tomorrow, the Bisaan will be underground, dying.
Won't be able to find them or their eggs.
And Jesse will wait another 27 years.
Well, there's four of us now.
We'll smoke those sons of bitches.
It'll eat him alive if we don't.
It's hard to watch someone go through that, isn't it? [ Exhales .]
I never had a brother or a sister, but I've seen it over and over, when someone loses someone when they're young.
It never heals over.
No, it doesn't.
And the insane thing is, how many hunters have you seen over the years get their revenge? A few.
Me, too.
And they are never fixed, are they? No, I guess not.
But you gotta help him get that revenge anyway.
[ Thunderclap .]
[ Thunder rumbling .]
I must've stumbled around searching for Matty, 10, 20 minutes.
[ Sighs .]
I was shaking and panicking.
Told myself I had to focus, find him, and I did.
Those green eyes staring at me.
It wasn't human.
I took off, didn't look back.
You never saw him again after that? Everybody in town, including my mom, thought some pervert had taken him.
She was falling apart, crying.
Why didn't I remember what the guy looked like? Why was I making up this lie? She still live here? Moved as soon as she could.
Still thinks I should've done something.
Saved him.
Everybody did.
They couldn't accept that your brother was taken by a monster, huh? They couldn't accept a lot of things.
But Matty did.
He was a great brother.
[ Low rattling and buzzing .]
[ Branch snaps .]
[ Grunting .]
[ Hissing .]
[ Hisses .]
[ Groans .]
Ah! You good? Go! [ Groans, Pants .]
[ Owl hoots .]
I don't care if you're FBI or not.
It was 30 years ago.
I don't remember a damn thing.
[ Inhales deeply .]
Except we never found them.
Yeah, well, one of them was a 16-year-old boy, and that was my brother.
A lot of folks lost family that year.
And you didn't help a damn one of them, did you? Jesse Mr.
Cochran, we're here because more people have gone missing.
The same MO.
No, it's done.
It's done.
[ Rustling .]
[ Groans .]
Cesar? You lost it? No.
No, I followed it.
I saw where it went.
I think I found the burrow.
[ Exhales .]
Thank God.
I think that's why he attacked you.
He was being protective.
Of what? The females, the burrow.
Oh, that makes sense.
Must be laying their eggs by now.
You gonna be all right? Yeah.
Where are we headed? It's a hike.
That's okay.
I tried to call Sam.
There's no service.
Do you think the whole brood's there? If we're lucky.
[ Sighs deeply .]
Let's go.
All right.
[ Squeaks .]
[ Squeaks, water stops .]
Okay, I'll tell you what.
Leave me your card, and if anything comes back to me, I'll call.
Cochran, you don't own a phone.
Look, we're not asking for a lot.
Just please tell us what you know.
[ Thunder rumbling .]
I couldn't find them.
So that's on me.
[ Sighs heavily .]
I never recovered from it.
II So I bought this little slice of heaven and made my peace.
I wish you all better luck.
I was 12 when my brother got taken.
I never got over what I lost that day, the one person in the whole world I loved the most.
[ Thunder rumbling .]
Okay, I'm only gonna say this once.
It's time for you to go.
Listen, we know what took Jesse's brother, and what took all the townspeople then and now.
You know, Jesse was only a kid at the time, but he was telling the truth.
What took these people was not human.
How do you know? It's what we do.
I saw one of the creatures today.
[ Inhales sharply .]
I knew she was something.
I didn't know what.
I tracked one of those things down in '89.
It was sick and dying.
I I followed it back to its -- it's lair, I guess.
[ Voice breaks .]
My daughter was there.
[ Crying .]
Couple of days before that, she had left to go back to school.
I [ Exhales sharply .]
I don't know what happened.
But she was one of them.
[ Inhales shakily .]
Wait a second.
You never reported her as missing.
[ Sniffles .]
I knew where she was.
[ Inhales deeply, exhales sharply .]
All the missing people were scattered all around, dead.
[ Sniffles .]
I think she and that other thing had killed them.
I tried I tried talking to her, but she attacked me like some kind of rabid wolf.
[ Sniffles .]
Teeth like thorns.
I killed her.
You son of a bitch.
You knew the whole time! You knew where they were when everybody was suffering.
I was suffering, too! Jesse.
Hey, hey.
Hold on.
Hold on.
You think anybody would've believed me?! Monsters? You told me I was making it up! We could've told people together, found those things.
They were already dying.
All the missing people were dead.
You didn't wanna say that your kid was one of them -- a monster -- and that you Hey.
killed her.
You killed her.
Jesse, stop.
What did you do? What, did you just erase her from your life? Pretend that she just went away somewhere? [ Crying .]
Yeah, better to bury it.
All of it.
[ Exhales shakily .]
We just let the townspeople think their loved ones had run off for a big, bright life.
Where was she? Where did you find her? [ Inhales sharply .]
By Taylor Creek.
The old Donnelly mine.
[ Sniffles .]
Come on.
[ Exhales shakily .]
[ Foliage rustles .]
[ Wood cracks .]
[ Boards clatter .]
[ Low rattling .]
[ Squishing sounds .]
[ Low rattling and buzzing .]
[ Hisses .]
[ Hissing .]
[ Grunts .]
Uhh! [ Growls .]
Oh! [ Groans .]
[ Machete clangs .]
[ Squish .]
[ Hisses .]
Uhh! [ Head thuds .]
[ Hissing .]
[ Grunting .]
[ Shovel clangs .]
[ Rattling .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Shovel clanking .]
[ Head thuds .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Panting .]
I hate it when I lose my blade.
You could've jumped in anytime.
[ Shovel thuds .]
[ Groans .]
[ Shovel clatters .]
What is this place? [ Low rattling .]
It's a maternity ward/ subway station.
That hole -- I think that's a tunnel.
That's gotta go topside eventually.
Mothers are already dead.
Males weren't protecting them.
They were protecting the eggs.
They must gestate inside for years till they hatch.
Yeah, well, these aren't.
I got about 5 gallons of gasoline in the car.
I'll go pull her around.
[ Vehicle approaching .]
[ Engine turns off .]
You guys find the burrow? Where are they? Dean: They're in the mine.
Don't worry.
They won't be coming back out.
We just gotta take care of the eggs.
You okay? Hell, yeah.
It's finally over.
You wanna finish them off? [ Gasoline sloshes .]
Let's give him a minute.
Jesse: Aw, jeez.
[ Inhales sharply .]
Hey, bro.
[ Crying .]
We found Matty.
[ Whispers .]
Oh, jeez.
[ Inhales shakily .]
Oh, god.
[ Exhales sharply .]
We'll give him a proper burial.
[ Sniffles .]
What about the others? [ Continues crying .]
Don't worry.
We'll, uh [ Gasoline sloshes .]
we'll take care of it.
[ Birds cawing .]
Sam: You know [ Exhales sharply .]
whenever you and dad used to leave me to go hunting and I -- and I wouldn't hear from y'all for a while, I, um, I was always sure that some vamp or rugaru or take your pick I always figured one of them finally got ya.
I tried to think of what to do, you know, the next step to take.
I was just lost.
We came back, though, every time.
[ Wood clattering .]
And look at Jesse.
I mean, he turned out all right.
They're a good team.
Come on.
They are.
I was thinking, maybe they could give us a hand with Amara, you know, with Cass.
Fresh eyes.
Could use the extra muscle, too.
[ Match strikes .]
[ Flames whoosh .]
You did it.
We did it.
Thank you.
[ Flames whoosh .]
You know, it's a good thing you guys had that fire extinguisher.
Yeah, for a second there, I thought the whole mine was gonna go up in flames.
Yeah, you loved it.
Like 27 birthdays and Christmases all in one fireball.
[ Chuckles .]
Well, you're awfully upbeat for a guy who spent half the night in a cave.
That's because we had a deal.
When we finished this hunt, if we caught 'em, we hang up our spurs.
Unless your hides need saving.
No, we're all set.
So, uh, what's freedom look like? Nice little spread in New Mexico.
We've been paying on it for years.
Set foot on it about twice? Gonna raise horses.
And if that goes bust, Jesse used to be an EMT.
Oh, so now I'm supporting your ass? [ Chuckles .]
It's time to start living.
Couldn't do it, huh? No, didn't feel right.
I know what you mean.
Two hunters who make it to the finish line? Yeah, you leave that alone.
[ Engine starts, revs .]
