Supernatural s12e20 Episode Script

Twigs & Twine & Tasha Banes

1 Dad's on a hunting trip and he hasn't been home in a few days.
We could take care of a few kitchen witches.
They get their power from demons.
I mean, selling your soul at the crossroads kind of deal? So you guys were raised by a witch, but you're hunters.
Both: Yep.
[ Camera shutter clicks .]
Ketch: Dr.
Hess wants to know everything about our "friends" the Winchesters -- their allies [ Silenced gunshot .]
their habits.
how does Sam get his hair so shiny? When I saw Dagon had captured Kelly, I thought the angels could help.
And? [ Chokes, groans .]
Time to take this off the board.
No! I know now that this child must be born with all of his power.
[ Thunder rumbling, birds chirping .]
[ Vehicle approaching .]
[ Clock chiming .]
Hello? You have to ring the bell.
[ Exhales .]
You startled me.
What a delicate constitution you must have.
[ Clock tolling .]
Uh, that is a lovely ring.
[ Chuckles .]
And if it goes missing, I'll know who to blame.
I could cleanse your aura if you like.
Looks a littlemuddy.
[ Bell dings .]
[ Sighs .]
Coming! Sorry.
[ Towels thud .]
Sorry for the wait.
- Are you Tasha? - Tasha Banes, yes.
- I called and - Yes, right.
I'm Andy.
We've got you set up at the top of the stairs.
So what brings you to Rock River? Business or pleasure? Little bit of both.
[ Cellphone chimes .]
[ Whoosh .]
[ Humming .]
[ Front door closes .]
[ Humming continues .]
[ Cellar doors creaking .]
[ Exhales sharply .]
Oh, God.
[ Exhales deeply .]
[ Exhales sharply .]
[ Rustling, squish .]
[ Gasps loudly .]

Supernatural 12x20 Twigs & Twine & Tasha Banes Okay, so last night that Super Mario power-up crap? That wasn't Cass.
[ Sighs .]
That freaking baby isn't even born yet and it sock puppeted him.
Think about it.
Cass said that he had faith in Lucifer Jr.
? What the hell is that supposed to mean? I don't know.
I mean, look, this doesn't make any sense to me either, Dean.
But if we wanna have some shot at finding Cass, then we have to I don't know.
Uh, try and think like him.
How? Seriously, I mean up until now, if Cass messed up, if he did something wrong, but he thought it was for the right reasons, I got it.
Right? But last night, when I looked at him, I did not recognize the guy staring back at me.
[ Sighs .]
Can you fix it? I hope so.
[ Cellphone vibrating .]
It's not me.
It's not me.
[ Vibrating continues .]
Must be one of Mom's.
[ Vibrates, beeps .]
Hello? Oh, uh Sam? Uh, I didn't know y-- Uh, it's Alicia Banes.
Alicia? Hey, what's going on? Like Max and Alicia? Yeah.
Yeah, sorry to, um Uh, Mary gave me a couple different numbers to reach her, and we thought -- No.
I thought Mary would be down to help.
Uh, be our backup on this, um You sound crazy.
Hey, guys.
It's Dean.
Uh, you okay? Yeah, depends who you ask.
Um, Mom was hunting this witch who's killed people all over Wyoming.
Uh, anyway, Mom usually checks in with us, but she's sort of disappeared.
Oh, my God.
She did not disappear.
She's busy.
Wait, so -- so your mom is missing? Where are you guys? We're on our way to Rock River, Wyoming.
But Max thinks I'm overreacting, but I -- Because you're being dramatic.
Mom's fine.
Stop bothering them.
Hey, we'll be okay.
Uh, never mind.
No, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Um [ Mouths words .]
Hey, why don't you text us your address? We'll meet you.
You will? They will what? We'll see you soon.
[ Cellphone beeps .]
What the hell, man? What about Cass? Dude, Cass ditched his cellphone.
Look, Jody put an APB out for Cass and Kelly across three states.
Until that shakes something loose or we get some other break, all we're doing is -- is sitting here, banging our heads against a brick wall.
Let's get out there.
Let's [ Sighs .]
Their mom's on a hunting trip and hasn't been home in a week.
All right.
Let's go.
[ Cellphone beeps .]
[ Cellphone vibrating .]
[ Grunts, gasps .]
[ Coughs, gasping breaths .]
[ Breathing deeply .]
[ Vibrating continues .]
Please be a dear and shut that bloody thing off.
[ Vibrating continues .]
It's Dean.
And? [ Vibrating stops .]
This is Mary.
Leave a message.
[ Beep .]
Hey, uh, just wanted to let you know that, uh, me and Sam, we're uh, we're heading out on a case with those witch twins, uh, Max and Alicia.
Um, I'll text you the info, but, uh I know the Brits have got you running nonstop.
So if you can help out, that'd be great.
Um And even if you can't swing by, can you call me back? Just some stuff going down that's kind of got me spun out.
Be good to talk to you.
[ Cellphone beeps .]
[ Chuckles .]
I suppose it amuses you to take Mary's form, or perhaps you believe it will inspire a bit of hesitation on my part.
[ Grunting .]
It will not.
[ Breathing deeply .]
Aah! [ Groans .]
[ Squish .]
Aah! [ Screams .]
[ Breathing heavily .]
He's not gonna talk.
The shifter has killed people, Mary.
This is the very beginning of what it deserves.
And if it tells us where its family is, well, then this will all stop.
[ Laughs, inhales sharply .]
That eye of yours twitches when you lie.
My eye twitches all the time.
[ Grunts .]
[ Southern accent .]
Well, then, I guess I know all about you.
Sam: Hey, guys.
All right, well, we're here.
What do you got? Our mom was after a "borrower" witch.
So witch that gets their power from a demon deal.
Okay, so you tracked your mom here? And now we tracked her to the only vegan restaurant in town.
They told us where she was staying.
Anything else? I got the bartender's phone number.
[ Sighs .]
Ignore him.
Dean that car is still major.
You want the tour? Definitely.
Come on.
Max isn't really feelin' this.
Yeah, I hadn't noticed.
[ Sighs .]
He always thinks he knows Mom better, but it's 'cause they're both natural witches.
It's who they are.
[ Groans .]
Right? [ Chuckles .]
Is that a grenade launcher? Yes, she is.
Yeah, but, uh, this is what we need right now.
Witch killing bullets.
And what about you? Uh, with magic.
Nah, I don't have it.
It's just kind of a lot of noise to me.
Magic is definitely their thing, you know? Yeah.
When I was growing up, Dean and my dad had the same thing with hunting, that bond.
What about with Mary? I mean, she, uh, she gets into a case and just sort of vanishes.
No, Mary's a great hunter.
Uh, she doesn't seem like much of a hugger.
[ Chuckles .]
[ Chuckles .]
Max: Hey.
[ Lockbox closes .]
[ Trunk closes .]
Let's go find your mom.
[ Engine turns off .]
[ Car doors close .]
Well, her car's here.
Well, no one's trying to hide it.
That's good news.
[ Cellar doors thud .]
Not weird.
At all.
All right, look, anything happens, you guys stay behind us.
Alicia Uh, hi.
Can I help you? [ Door closes .]
Yes, please.
We're, uh, we're looking for, uh -- Max? Alicia? What are you two doing here? Mom! [ Chuckles .]
Sam and Dean Winchester, meet the great Tasha Banes.
The kids have told me very nice things.
Alicia basically made them come just in case you were in peril.
Well, that was unnecessary, but very nice of you all the same.
Andy, can we get a couple rooms for my children and their friends? Sure.
It'll just be a minute.
You can wait in my room.
I have wine.
[ Laughs .]
[ Lowered voice .]
So Rock River's a dead end.
No witches here, unfortunately.
Thought this was the place -- Well, then why didn't you call us? I mean, we -- Ahem.
[ Grunts .]
I called and texted a lot.
I'm sorry, baby.
My phone hasn't been charging all day.
Oh, but I did find a fantastic acupuncturist.
Of course you did.
Of course you did.
You want me to help with that? Oh, I've got it.
No, but you always call on the fourth day of a hunt, no matter what.
Honestly, babe, it just slipped my -- [ Cork pops .]
[ Crunch .]
Mom? You okay? I'm fine.
Sam, do the honors.
Of course.
Alicia, put some music on.
[ Wine pouring .]
[ Cracking .]
[ Bottle thuds .]
[ Sniffs .]
I ordered food from that vegan place, but no deliveries.
Oh, I can get it.
Oh, I'll grab it.
Uh, you guys stay, hang out, catch up.
[ Clears throat .]
[ Glasses clink .]
[ Door unlocks, beeps .]
I must say, I am pumping with adrenaline.
Perhaps we could find some privacy and tire ourselves out.
It's not illicit motel sex, but -- I remember us agreeing that was a onetime thing.
Did we? Ah, well.
Ketch, it was a waste of time, that little torture session.
Oh, you mean the information gathering session? Yeah, but we didn't get any Intel.
[ Sighs .]
That shifter was never gonna betray his family, and still you -- Sometimes pain works.
Sometimes it doesn't.
But anyone who tells you that torture is never the answer, they haven't been under the knife.
But you enjoyed it, because that I have never seen that side of you.
Yes, well, Mary, I'm sad to say that you won't become the Jiminy Cricket of the British Men of Letters.
We don't need a conscious.
Such a trite idea, but we firmly believe the ends do justify the means.
They didn't this time.
Ah, but look, you're still with us.
[ Sighs .]
Feel free to call Mick Davies.
Have him write me up.
Well, Mick's not answering his phone.
And his e-mails have stopped.
I'm sure he's busy.
When you get called to London by the old men, it's not all pints of stout and trips to Savile Row.
Oh, and you should probably return Dean's call.
Wouldn't want him to think Mummy doesn't love him.
[ Cellphone beeps .]
[ Beep .]
Expecting a call? Oh.
[ Cellphone thuds .]
Max: Alicia Guess not.
let's say later, I hypothetically might need your Jeep to take it out for maybe a little cruise.
Mm, let's not.
[ Max and Alicia speaking indistinctly .]
You know, I gotta say, you did a bang up job with those two.
[ Chuckles .]
You must be drunk.
Off of wine? Max: Not fair.
I did the best I could for Max and Alicia.
I got lucky.
I see how you are with them, all right? It's good.
You know, they're -- they're happy.
[ Max and Alicia continue speaking indistinctly .]
Alicia said you grew up in the life.
Yeah, my dad raised me and Sam to hunt.
And your mother? That's complicated.
[ Laughs .]
Family's always complicated.
Parents always seem smart and strong and perfect.
It's only when you grow up that you realize that they're just people.
Max: love your brother? Dean: And even if you can't swing by, can you call me back? Just some stuff going down that's kind of got me spun out.
Be good to talk to you.
[ Line disconnects .]
[ Cellphone beeps .]
Well, I can't just send him to you economy comfort, now can I? [ Grunts .]
The package is in the armory now.
We gave it a lot number.
[ Mouths numbers .]
We'll speak when you get in.
[ Cellphone vibrates .]
[ Sighs .]
You've made yourself at home.
Uh Can I help you with something? I use Mick's computer for e-mail.
Uh, uh, yeah, well, have at it.
[ Typing .]
[ Taps key .]
There's a message from Mick.
He says he's gonna be stuck in London a few more weeks.
Wellthere you are.
[ Laughter .]
[ Dean speaks indistinctly .]
- Hey.
Dean: Oh! Food! Ooh! Oh! Who's hungry? Me! Oh, my goodness.
Thank you.
All right.
Ooh, it smells so good.
All right, let's see what we've got.
Here, I can set up over here.
Max: Hey.
We'll be right back, y'all.
Tasha: Ah, you two.
Get it -- get it down.
Grab some napkins.
I know that look.
What's up? This was posted outside the restaurant.
That guy we saw earlier, coming out of the cellar? He's been missing for a month.
Okay, that's weird.
Well, maybe Tasha's wrong.
Maybe there is something going on here.
I'll let 'em know.
No, no, no.
Let's We can handle it.
Come on.
[ Baneses speaking indistinctly .]
[ Humming .]
[ Humming continues .]
[ Twigs snap .]
[ Line rings .]
Dean: This is Dean's other other cell, so you must know what to do.
[ Beep .]
It's me.
Sorry I couldn't pick up before.
I've been on a hunt with Ketch.
[ Sighs .]
And, Dean I'm sorry I haven't been there for you and Sam.
But I wanna be.
I will be.
I just I need to finish this.
I miss you boys.
I love you.
[ Cellphone beeps .]
she made me get out of the car [ Cellphone vibrating .]
Tasha: She did not.
to make a phone call in the rain.
Oh, my God.
He just got out to yell at me.
[ Animal cries .]
[ Lock clicks .]
[ Door creaking .]
[ Groans .]
[ Door thuds .]
Smells like death.
[ Thunder rumbling .]
[ Inhales deeply .]
Go ahead.
[ Exhales sharply .]
What? You.
All right.
Alicia Was it that serious? Alicia: Oh, man.
[ Laughter .]
Ladies, I'm gonna leave you alone now to have some girl time.
Since when are you not a part of girl time? Since I've got a date with that hot bartender from that vegan restaurant.
We're gonna have some guy time.
Hey, don't do anything I wouldn't do.
And what exactly was that? [ Grunts .]
[ Keys jangle .]
Max! [ Sighs .]
[ Thunderclap .]
[ Switch clicks .]
[ Exhales slowly .]
Son of a bitch.
Her heart's been ripped out.
So have theirs.
Wait, this is everybody that's in the house.
Okay, well, if this is the real Tasha, then who the hell was I talking to up there? [ Thunderclap .]
[ Footsteps approaching .]
[ Guns cock .]
[ Descending footsteps .]
Hey, Max.
Uh I saw the light.
You guys find some trouble to get into? Nah.
No, no.
We -- we -- we just, uh I just [ Inhales and exhales sharply .]
[ Voice breaks .]
I just [ Crying .]
[ Sobs .]
[ Door unlocks, beeps .]
[ Switch clicks .]
[ Door beeps .]
[ Sighs deeply .]
[ Lid closes .]
[ Door beeps .]
[ Door locks, beeps .]
[ Beeping .]
[ Buzzer .]
[ Beeping .]
[ Whispers .]
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
[ Buzzer .]
[ Door beeps .]
[ Door closes, beeps .]
What the [ Beeps .]
Dean: So now we're reporting to low-rent Christian Bale? Seriously? I don't like that guy.
He creeps me out.
[ Line rings .]
This is Dean's other other cell, so you must know what to do.
[ Beep .]
Dean, call me.
We've got a problem.
[ Cellphone beeps .]
[ Door beeps .]
Hello, Mary.
Your handprint doesn't open this room because it's not for you.
[ Door closes, beeps .]
What are you doing here? Why is Mick's body in a box? An unfortunate werewolf mishap.
A werewolf shot him in the head? It's not impossible.
You're a psychopath.
Did you kill him? Mick was weak.
He wasn't one of us.
[ Grunting .]
[ Inhales deeply .]
When will you realize that we will do whatever it takes to rid this world of the things that go bump in the night? Something that people like Mick and your sons are incapable of.
[ Grunts .]
Uhh! [ Bone breaks .]
Aah! [ Groans .]
[ Panting .]
Don't talk about my boys.
Why not? [ Grunts .]
[ Groans, inhales sharply .]
I've been cleaning up after them for months.
[ Groans .]
I took care of those federal agents they stupidly allowed to live.
I killed a psychic girl they thought washuman.
Honestly, they're damn sloppy.
I think you mean decent.
It's the end for the American Hunters.
Their time has passed.
But I can keep you safe.
If you just play your part, if you play nice I don't play nice.
Aah! [ Groans .]
[ Grunts .]
Are we done? [ Chuckling weakly .]
Those Enochian brass knuckles only work on angels.
And sadly, I'm not an -- Aah! [ Coughs .]
Brass knuckles are brass knuckles.
Uhh! Oh! [ Gasps .]
Oh, you bitch! [ Electricity crackles .]
[ Groans .]
- No, I think he's really -- - Who are you? Max? What did you do to my mom? Max! What are you -- Wait, wait, wait.
Tell me! What are you doing? Let her go! That's not your mom.
- What? - Shh.
What are you talking -- Mom! Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
It's okay.
Max, what is wrong, sweetie? Don't! Don't.
You are not my mom.
Max -- I don't know what kind of thing you are, but you are not my mom.
Ow! Max! Stop! Reveal.
Now! [ Whoosh .]
Reveal! [ Twigs snapping .]
[ Haltingly .]
Thethe room, end of the hall.
Top of the stairs.
[ Snaps fingers .]
[ Whoosh .]
[ Gasping .]
Got him.
[ Glass shatters .]
[ Thud .]
[ Twigs snapping .]
Max! [ Gasps, chokes .]
[ Twigs snap .]
Mom! Really? People are trying to sleep.
All right, lady, craft time's over.
[ Gun clatters .]
[ Groans .]
Mom! Mom! [ Twigs cracking .]
Sam, this magic, what is this? I don't know.
I don't know.
[ Twigs crack .]
[ Gasps .]
How lucky am I? [ Gasps .]
Such an impressive witch.
Maybe you'll take the deal the last bitch wouldn't.
[ Grunts .]
[ Twigs cracking .]
My motheryou killed her.
Did I? What did you do to those people? Oh.
Let me show you.
[ Fingers snap .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Groans .]
[ Gasps, grunts .]
I'm reaching the end of my very long life, and it's a problem [ Gasps .]
'cause I sold my soul for power.
So when I pass, my soul goes to Hell.
Unless I can find someone to take the burden, to take my magic.
Sam! Mom! Mom! When your mother found me, and when I realized what she was, I offered to teach her.
I offered her my power.
[ Whispers indistinctly .]
But even dying, she was rude.
[ Spits .]
[ Whoosh .]
So I made her into one of my creatures.
[ Chuckles .]
[ Screaming .]
[ Gasps .]
[ Crying .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Gasps .]
[ Cries .]
That doll has all of your mother's memories.
[ Humming .]
It's her.
[ Snaps fingers .]
Just like the others.
Rick, Andy -- they do what I want, when I want.
I'm old.
[ Chuckles .]
I like things a certain way.
No! [ Grunts, groans .]
[ Gasping .]
Nice try.
If you kill me, well, then all of them just fall apart.
So here's the offer.
You take my power.
You take my burden, and my doll -- your mother -- will stay with you and your sister forever.
Just one big happy family.
Max, no.
Listen to me.
Your mother is gone, okay? It's awful and it sucks [ Snaps fingers .]
but that's -- Aah! So do we have a deal? [ Gasping .]
[ Twigs snapping .]
[ Breathing heavily .]
You okay? Mom! [ Gasps .]
No! [ Gasping .]
Take it and the deal is done.
Take it.
[ Gunshot .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Ring clatters .]
[ Twigs crack .]
[ Thud .]
[ Twig snaps .]
[ Gasping .]
Hey, hold on.
Just -- just take it easy.
Take it easy.
We're gonna get you some help.
[ Voice breaks .]
Why did you Max, listen to me.
Hey, hey.
I had to, okay? That deal wasn't with her.
It was with a demon.
You even touch that magic, you lose your soul.
Sam: Dean! Come on.
[ Gasping, gagging .]
Don't fight.
Don't -- Shh, shh.
Just take it easy, okay? Take a breath.
Alicia? [ Exhales sharply .]
She, uh Alicia? What? [ Sobbing .]
No, no, no.
Hey! Please, no.
No, no, no! Hey, Max, um, this is, uh Look, you -- you're probably in shock right now, but it's gonna pass.
And then it's gonna hurt.
I could've saved them My mom.
If I had just taken Alicia seriously.
Come on, man, you can't think like that.
Just stop talking.
We'll, uh, go get some supplies.
We have to, uh -- We gotta burn the bodies, Max.
Like my dad.
I can do it.
I I should do it.
You two get out of here.
Max, we would -- Please.
Please just You did the right thing.
You saved him.
Yeah, he seemed super saved.
You know, I was watching them, this loving family.
The kind we should've had.
And now just like that, it's gone.
Dean, you couldn't let Max make some deal for his soul.
Sam, we do terrible things all the time to save each other.
I mean, that's what you do for family.
Who am I to stop him? Well, he's strong.
He'll be all right.
[ Seasick Steve's "In Peaceful Dreams" playing .]
Yeah, I'm not so sure.
Oh, them old hollows [ Stabs .]
[ Humming .]
Hide the dark secrets [ Whoosh .]
[ Groans .]
What happened? I feel [ Inhales deeply .]
Ugh, I feel like I drank too much tequila.
Whatw-what did you do? What Are you hurt? No, no, no, no.
I-I I'll explain everything.
But we gotta go now.
Okay? Okay.
Oh, them old hollows Hide the dark secrets [ Whoosh .]
Tell what they've seen You'd never sleep again In peaceful dreams [ Beeps .]
Mary: Hey, it's me.
Sorry I couldn't pick up before.
I've been on a hunt with Ketch.
I'm sorry I haven't been there for you and Sam, but I wanna be.
I will be.
I justI need to finish this.
I miss you boys.
I love you.
[ Line disconnects .]
[ Beep .]
Dean, call me.
We've got a problem.
[ Line disconnects .]
[ Beep .]
Sam? Hey, it's Mom.
Something's wrong.
Sam! [ Coughs .]
[ Groans .]
Good of you to rejoin me.
A Taser? Not really a fair fight.
If only you'd been as ruthless as I hoped, this could have worked out.
Remember, Mary, I gave you a chance.
[ Scoffs .]
So now what? You kill me? [ Cellphone vibrating .]
[ Beep .]
Don't be silly.
You're an asset.
We have other plans for you.
Now, Mary Let's begin.
