The Dead Zone s01e12 Episode Script


I had the perfect life until|I was in a coma for six years.
Then I woke up|and found my fiancée married to another man.
My son doesn't know|who I am.
Everything has changed including me.
One touch,|and I can see things.
Things that happened.
|Things that will happen.
You should see what I see.
Ah a wingspan of up to eight feet! Eight feet! You are not going to see|a bald eagle? Why not? There are only three bald eagles|in the whole county.
- I'll settle for a dodo.
|- A dodo.
Too late.
|They're extinct.
What's the point|in birdwatching if all the birds I want to watch|are missing in action? What's the point of bringing me|out here to do physical therapy? To get you back to|the basics.
We can't duplicate in a gym the type of landscape that|human legs evolved upon.
Let me tell you something.
|Nobody evolved in Maine, okay? Well, until we can pay a visit|back to Mother Africa, it'll have to do.
You've never even|been to Africa.
If I'm gonna lug|these suckers around, you'd best deliver me something|with an eight-foot wingspan.
How are you doing, sir? Not bad.
Yourself? Not too bad.
I'll take 20 on supreme,|please.
So, you seen any bald eagles|around here lately, or? Saw them yesterday.
- You're kidding.
|- Yes, I am.
But I am expecting two tomorrow.
I'll give them your regards.
Thank you, sir.
Now what? # Oooh # # Fall in love, fall in love,|fall in love # # Fall in love # # Feel no shame|for what you are # # Feel no shame|for what you are # # Fall in love,|fall in love # # Fall in love.
# Asteroid 1950 DA, diameter|approximately one kilometer, big enough to wipe out|a major metropolitan area or a good chunk of the countryside,|depending where it hits.
When? March of the year 2880.
Are you sure? NASA's sure,|JPL's sure, so I'm pretty sure.
And even then, the probability of impact|is relatively low.
That's not the one.
We've mapped more than|a thousand near-earth objects.
There are thousands more|you don't know about.
There's a near miss|every couple of weeks, and no one ever sees|them coming? But you can in a vision? People will die unless|you can identify this meteor and tell us exactly where|it's going to hit.
Where should I aim the telescope?|It's a very big sky up there.
All I can tell you is that it|will hit the side of a mountain.
Smith,|I agreed to our meeting because public relations|is my job here, but Do me a favor.
Let me talk|to one of the astronomers.
I'll be finished with|my doctorate by December.
Maybe you should come back|and see me then.
If I can find this mountain and give you an exact location|and the meteor's angle of impact You bring me the declination|and right ascension, and we'll point the telescope|together.
Good morning, Officer.
License and|registration, please.
You were driving too slow for|the road.
Is there a problem? No, sir.
I'm just looking for|a mountain.
There's plenty to choose from|around here.
There's a scenic turnout|a few miles up the road.
You might have better luck.
|Thank you, sir.
Oh, man Sheriff! Walt! Looks like things got|a little too cold last night.
K wai K wai Aah! Aah! Pion n'wigomnok! Aah! Aah! You can see me.
Awani gia? How are you doing? Kadgwi achiwaldaman? I'm sorry|if I'm trespassing Sorry.
All right, look, I don't know what the hell's|happening any more than you do, okay? But I'm guessing by those nice|deerskin pants you've got there that you lived a long time ago,|didn't you? All right, well, maybe maybe I'm having a vision|of the past and you're having a vision|of the future and your knife is what links us.
|Huh? Aah! Origin southwest maybe 45 Impact here.
Longitude 68 degrees, latitude 44 degrees, For driving too slow? Yeah.
You got a location on that? Right.
Thanks a lot.
Highway Patrol directed him|to a scenic turnout.
Exit 47 off the highway.
Somewhere between here|and Bangor.
Somewhere halfway in between.
Let's get a search party|out there.
I guess you think|I'm some kind of spirit or demon.
Can a spirit bleed? Sounds crazy, but I need your help.
I'm hurt, man.
I'm stuck out here.
I need a fire or I'm going to|freeze tonight.
I was a lousy Eagle Scout|when I was a kid.
Can you help me? Kagwi k'didam? What? Okay, look, I can't feel the heat|from your fire.
I need my own.
I was afraid of that.
Technically speaking, your fire|went out centuries ago.
That's nice.
You're not getting it, huh? Wzomi tka! Okay.
Well I'm using the wrong kindling.
You ever seen one of these? Thanks.
Pull up a chair.
There's still time.
You've seen me before.
When you were a child.
"There's still time.
" Hello? We found Johnny's car.
Where? - Wilderness area.
|- Hey, Walt.
- Looks like he hiked in.
|- Are you going after him? As soon as the sun comes up.
So, I'll tell him|you said hello.
I love you, Walt.
I love you, too.
Mom? Hey.
- What's wrong, sweetie?|- I can't go to sleep.
Join the club.
The club is over here.
Come on.
That stuff from your bag there's no copper,|no bronze, no iron, which you would've gotten|from any European trader.
Which means you lived|before they got here.
Maybe 400, 500 years ago, at least.
So 500 years ago, you fall on your head and you have|a vision of me, John Smith.
Why? Awani gia? Awani gia? I've appeared to you|more than once.
Awani gia? Awani gia? Awani gia? Awani gia? Awani gia.
"Awani gia.
"|What does that mean? "Who are you?" "What do you want?"|"Get the hell out of here.
" You've been waiting for me|to answer that your whole life.
You've had visions of the future|just as I've had.
We're not so different, are we? Kagwi k'didam? That's why you can see me, the knock on your head.
Maybe we're both operating|out of our dead zones.
I don't know if it will work|for you like it works for me.
You want to know who am I? Do you want to see|what I see? Take it.
Maybe it'll help us figure out why|our powers brought us together.
K we-yoh! It worked, huh? Awani gia.
You want more? Are we ready for our|sponge bath, Mr.
Smith? I know.
You thought|I'd never ask.
Lord!|You're awake! Something's wrong.
|Something's wrong.
There's still time!|There's still time.
What? There's still time!|Maggie! Maggie! That's my daughter's name.
|How do you know that? Your daughter's screaming! There's still time.
There's still time.
There's still time.
I didn't wanna know|what that meant.
K we-yoh! Oh.
Yo gagwi.
Stone age medicine? Have to stay alive till|the sun comes up.
Keep the fire going.
They'll see the smoke.
Just stop the bleeding.
|That's all.
Ahh! Oligun.
Sorry to drag you|out of bed.
Are you kidding?|I'm an astronomer.
Vampire schedule.
He took the Picture Rock|turnoff, right? That's where they found the car.
He's got some ambulatory issues|from a previous accident.
The furthest he could've gotten|in a day is 15 miles.
That's about 180 square miles|of ground to search.
Which is exactly why we need|to narrow it down.
Did he indicate at all|where he was headed? No.
But he wanted to locate|the impact site of the asteroid.
The one he saw - In his vision.
|- Right.
That's odd.
What's odd? This data includes|geological surveys.
Look at that iridium spike.
There's still time.
There's still time.
The old man,|the astronomer, the cop I saw them disappear because they|are descendants of your people There must have been|hundreds of them, thousands.
They would be wiped out|if you were destroyed.
Don't you get it? That's why you saw me|in your visions.
That's why I ended up here|so I could warn you.
There's still time.
You saw it.
" This is all going to burn.
You've got to get them out.
Do you understand? You have to get them|across the river.
I did what I had to do.
And now it's your turn.
Okay? See, that's the trick.
With our gift you do what you have to do and you never really know why until the end.
Johnny didn't have a vision of|a meteor that was going to hit, he saw one that already had.
Not in the future.
In the past.
|The geological surveys prove it.
- We're talking 600 years ago.
|- So how does that help us? We have the address|of that rock! I bet you he beat us to it.
Gagwi yo? Are we escaping to|the river? They are.
We have to go somewhere else.
Not bad at all.
Gagwi yo.
I'm still here.
You have to go.
Why? Your friends are waiting.
I saw them.
I can understand you.
When we die,|we all sound the same.
Who's dying? You have to go.
There's something|for you to do.
I've seen it.
I like it here.
It's quiet, huh? Not for long.
" You'd better leave, too.
While there's still time.
I have to stay here and wake you from|our dream.
I've seen that, too.
I'm dreaming.
Wake up.
Wake and say goodbye.
Sheriff, we've got him.
I did what I had|to do and now it's your turn.
You have to go.
You'd better leave, too.
While there's still time.
What about the old man|who works here? Don't try to talk.
- The old man|- What about him? Is he all right? Looks okay to me.
The astronomer I just talked to her.
|She's glad you're okay.
You are okay, Johnny.
Just need to fill|the fuel tanks, that's all.
I take supreme,|all right? I know you do, man.
- No.
|- Yes.
You're grounded.
