The Gates s01e11 Episode Script

Surfacing

Previously on the Gates.
So, what's up with you and Charlie? Is that really any of your business? Succubi paramour.
I need the life force of others to survive.
What happened to her parents? I met them.
We socialized.
And then I murdered them.
This is her home.
We've got her adoption records if you'd like to look at them.
Thanks, aunt Nancy.
Don't you worry.
We know where you live now.
And we can't wait to visit the gates.
Whoa, Teresa! My name isn't Teresa.
It's Amanda.
That was my brother you murdered.
Ohh.
Hey.
Another nightmare? yeah.
Okay, honey.
I'm getting worried about you.
This has been going on for weeks.
No, it's just a nightmare.
I'm fine, sweetie.
You put it under his pillow? Yeah, exactly like you said, And it didn't work.
He still had nightmares last night.
Surprising.
In my experience, Dream satchels are usually very effective.
Makes me wonder if these nightmares are indicative Of a deeper-seeded problem.
Well, I know that there's something going on, But I just -- I can't get him to tell me about it.
I can help with that if you'd like.
I have a tea that will lower inhibition, Make it easier to talk.
Yeah, he doesn't really believe in this kind of stuff.
Well, then, I'm afraid there's nothing more I can do.
Okay.
All right.
Thanks for trying.
Sarah.
I'd like you to forget you sought my help for this.
Oh.
Sorry.
Did you say something? Yes.
Thanks for stopping by.
Sure.
Thanks.
As you die, Know that I'm going back inside for your daughter.
Sir? Yeah.
We just got a call about dogs fighting on sanctuary.
Dogs? Yeah.
I'm sure it's nothing.
We have two units on patrol, But I should probably take the call.
You mind holding down the fort? No.
No, not at all.
Uh, you know what? Just take off.
Go home after that.
- Okay.
Thank you, sir.
- Alright.
- Good night, then? - You too.
Leigh? Leigh? Good morning.
Chief.
Morning, sir.
Leigh, did you come back here last night? Uh, no, you told me to head home.
Remember? Well, after you left, I saw someone in the bullpen.
And then the monitors were showing The intern security feed.
What? Well, to switch the monitors, You need the administrator pass code.
And I'm the only one who has it.
Right.
Well, I mean, some switched the system, So if there's another breach, we need to fix that.
Absolutely.
I forgot to return this.
You took my algebra book? I kind of like to know what's coming.
Like this.
Hanging in the hallways.
Everyone seems so grown up.
I needed this book for class this morning.
Don't take my stuff without asking me.
Hi, Andie! Hey, Dana.
Hi, Charlie.
What is up with you? She said hello.
Yeah, well, this is how grown-ups act When people lie to them.
Mommy? What are you doing home so early? Soccer practice was canceled, so Lucy's mom brought me home.
Well, I wish you had called me.
Why? Because I Have been having ice cream.
How about you? Isn't it too close to dinner? Well, perhaps, but it'll be our little secret.
So why don't you run along upstairs and get changed, And you and I will sneak off? Sir? Yeah.
I, um I looked into that issue Of you showing up on the monitors last night.
And the system did show a power surge at about 8:13, About 12 seconds before you were seen entering the bullpen.
I have no idea how, But it must have triggered the internal video feed.
Well, that explains the monitors, but Who was in the room before me? No one, sir.
You were definitely alone.
Are you sure? Yes, sir.
All right.
So, I've been thinking.
It will be 50 years for us next month, and um Well, I was thinking perhaps maybe you want to go away And renew our bond.
Are you sure that's what you want? After everything we've been through? Well, I've loved you from the moment we met.
I now know that's not going to change.
I only hope that you That you feel The same.
Well, I think that London.
Would be quite fitting.
Yeah, London.
I'll call the airline.
Hello? Yes, Nancy.
How are you? Um, yes, Emily's doing very well.
Tomorrow? Well, let me check with Claire.
Aunt Nancy wants to come over for a visit.
Well, of course she can.
Um, Nancy, yes, tomorrow should be fine.
Shall we say about noon? Right.
Okay.
Well, we'll see you then.
All right.
Bye.
Are you sure about this? Christian wanted us to fight over Emily.
We can't let him win.
Hey.
Hey.
How do I get rid of that? Just a good night's sleep.
Maybe I can help with that.
Hmm? Mm.
Nick, what is happening to you? How long have these nightmares been going on? About three weeks.
Nightmares are often driven by a conflict Between the conscious and the subconscious.
Is there anything in particular you've been struggling with? No.
Nothing that comes to mind.
Well, if you're not willing to talk about it, The only alternative I can suggest is one of my teas.
I'm not really a tea drinker.
These things don't just go away.
They will continue to haunt you.
Twice a day every day, And this problem Will be solved.
Great.
Thank you.
So, that wasn't so bad.
Was it? That was fine.
You're not gonna drink that tea, are you? Why not? - I don't trust her.
- Yeah, well, I don't trust you.
- Sarah.
- No, you've been having nightmares for weeks now, And now you're telling me that you're seeing things? Now, I know you're hiding something from me.
If you don't want to talk about it, you won't tell Devon or anyone about it, that's fine.
- Really, Nick, again? - Okay.
Okay.
Okay.
Alright! I've been reliving things, okay? Bad things that I've done, and I don't know how to make it stop.
Okay, well, I don't know, either.
But I know you got to do something, 'cause just doing nothing about it and hoping it's gonna go away, that doesn't work anymore.
Okay.
If it doesn't stop soon, I'll I'll drink the tea.
Thank you.
I suppose you're wondering why I invited you for yogurt.
Well, yes.
I am a little curious.
As Charlie's sibling, like it or not, I have a stake in what's going on in his romantic life.
Charlie and I aren't actually dating anymore.
Yeah, but here's the thing.
He's into you.
Like really, really into you.
Now, I know you lied to him about something.
I don't really care about what, but whatever it is, just come clean.
Talk about it.
Please.
I want you guys to be happy.
And I don't want the next few months of my life to suck.
I think you have the wrong idea, Dana.
I came clean.
I told him things about myself that almost no one knows.
And now He doesn't want to be with me.
Thanks for the yogurt, kiddo.
I've got it.
Claire, this is Mrs.
Stanley From the department of child services.
Oh, it's Very nice to meet you.
Thank you.
Nice to meet you.
You okay, chief? Yeah.
Uh It went down the wrong pipe.
Our purpose today is to assess Emily's living situation And make sure she's being raised In a healthy and safe environment.
Yes, but I don't understand why this is happening seven years after we adopted our daughter.
Your daughter was kidnapped by one of your friends.
I mean, certainly you can understand my feeling concerned for her safety.
Okay, do we need our lawyer present? This is an informal interview, meant only to gather information.
It will happen, with or without a lawyer.
What is it that you need to know? If you don't mind, I'd like to start by interviewing your daughter.
All right.
I'll go and get her right away.
That's okay.
I prefer to conduct the interview in the child's room.
I'm afraid that it will be rather messy, and there's certainly not enough seating room for everyone.
Mrs.
Radcliff, it'll just be myself and Emily.
Excuse me.
What are you doing here? I need to talk to you.
Are you sure Teresa's dead? Nick, this is not a good time.
Just Answer the question.
Yes, I'm certain.
Now, if you' excuse me I'm in the middle of something- I need to see the body.
I thought we'd put this matter to rest.
This doesn't involve you, Dylan.
I need to see it.
Okay, but with all the rain, it's probably underwater.
So, uh, do the police have any leads on this friend of yours Christian? Uh, no, nothing yet, but I assure you, he won't be stepping inside the gates again.
Huh.
Did yourself and Mrs.
Stanley Drive down together from St.
Louis? Yes.
Trying to save on gas.
How thoughtful.
Oh.
Yeah.
Um, would you excuse me for a moment? Hey.
Yeah What was that about? I'm assessing the situation.
Just as you taught me.
Emily's interview will go fine.
There's nothing to worry about.
She may have seen me drinking yesterday.
Soccer practice was cancelled, and I didn't know that she was in the house.
Ugh.
Well, did she, or didn't she? I don't know.
But I will not let them take our daughter.
Now, did you lock the front door? Yes.
Aah! I wonder how, uh, glass got in the garden.
No idea.
Nick, anything we discuss is privileged.
You can trust me.
I've been seeing things.
Things that, uh That can't be real.
Things Or people? A woman.
But I know she's dead.
Then it was probably her spirit you saw.
A spirit.
Sometimes after death, Spirits linger In our world.
Well, whatever it is, it's following me.
Everywhere.
Well, salt in doorways has been known to keep them away, But the goal should be to help it move on.
How do I do that? It may be enough to confront it.
Try to get it to leave this world.
But the thing is, it has to be ready to go.
I hope you understand, I have nothing against you.
I just I feel that I owe it to my sister You know, see that her child is safe.
Well, she is.
Perfectly safe.
I can assure you that we will do Whatever it takes to keep her that way.
That's good.
Well, Mr.
And Mrs.
Radcliff, you have got an extraordinary young girl on your hands.
so bright and well-adjusted.
And what an incredible imagination.
Yes, she's, uh, she's quite creative, isn't she? Well, I just couldn't believe what goes on in that castle of hers.
The search for the knight and the princess with the black stone.
And her parents, who are What'd you call them? Dragon slayers of the fourth order.
Yeah, she's Very creative.
Well, I'll be finishing my report when I get back to the office.
But rest assured, I think this is a wonderful home for Emily.
Well Thank you.
We'll see ourselves out.
Oh.
Before we go, I-I was wondering If could get a copy of the adoption papers.
I just want to make sure that all the I's are dotted and the t's crossed.
Yes, I'll be sure to send you a copy.
Well, then, thank you both.
I feel so much better, having seen your home.
And you My little sweetness.
I'll see you soon.
Bye.
Why don't you guys take off a little early? All of us? Yeah.
It's a slow night.
Next shift will be here soon.
Sweet.
All right.
You don't have to tell twice.
Thanks.
See you tomorrow.
Thanks, chief.
You got everything? Good night.
See you tomorrow.
You murdered my brother.
I had actually planned to kill them first.
You leave my family alone.
This ends here - with me.
Why? Listen to me.
I didn't kill you.
just stop this.
Please.
Just leave me alone.
Leave me alone! Ch-Charlie? Is that you? This isn't funny, Charlie.
Jerk.
Charlie, I know it was you.
Why would I want to scare you? Maybe you're transferring your anger About someone else to me.
What are you even talking about? You tell me.
What's going on? Charlie totally freaked me out last night.
I didn't do it, But I'm kind of wishing I had.
Okay, well, what I want to know is, Who tracked muddy water all over the floor? Must have been her.
It wasn't me.
Good morning, everyone.
Good morning.
How'd you sleep? Oh.
Best in weeks.
Really? Yeah.
well, honey, that's great! Uh, listen, can you look at the garbage disposal? It's jammed.
Oh, yeah.
Yeah.
I promise.
As soon as I get home from work, love.
Well, Nick Gotta go.
I love you.
Mwah! Come, come.
Okay, I will eat the hand, and, um, you finish off the ear.
That's not the ear.
Of course that's the ear.
What else could it be? It's the nose.
It fell off.
No.
No, no, no.
No.
Pancake noses They do not fall off.
But ears are the same size, and these aren't.
Okay, Claire, can you come over here and give our daughter a lesson in pancake anatomy, please? Absolutely.
That Is undoubtedly a nose.
Yes! Ugh.
Right.
Go and brush away all that sugary syrup.
Well, there's no fooling her anymore.
She is getting older.
I think that's something that we should discuss.
We dodged a bullet yesterday.
And I know that we said that we'd wait until she's older, but I don't think we can anymore.
Yeah, I think you're right.
I'd hate for her to think that we're hiding it.
You know, like we're ashamed of who we are.
Have you thought about how best to explain it? Only every day since she came into our lives.
Okay! That is it! I am done being tortured Because you can't just learn to deal with Andie.
What do you know about Andie? I know that she told you some secret That for some reason you can't just seem to deal with it.
You're right.
And if you knew what it is, you'd understand.
I don't care what it is.
All I know is that you are totally hooked on her.
And if your feelings are real, it shouldn't matter.
Daddy's got a surprise.
Got to have the right tool to fix the disposal.
- Well - Mwah.
- I did, and I didn't need a tool.
So, what do you think I should do? You're 15.
Think what a mature adult would do, And then do it.
Fine.
Keep acting like a child.
Alright.
What was the problem? Well, you're not gonna believe it, but I found this stuck in the bottom of it.
Charlie.
Isn't it beautiful? It's not even damaged.
Take it off.
What? Take off the necklace.
Mom, dad, help! Help! Dad! Mom! Mom! No! Nick? Sarah! - Help me! Help me! - Charlie? - I got it.
- Charlie? Come on.
Come on.
Charlie? Charlie! Get it out! Charlie! Breathe.
Breathe.
You okay? Yeah, dad.
You sure? I-I don't even remember how it happened.
I just started sinking.
All right.
Well, we'll get it checked out.
In the meantime, I want you to stay out of the pool, you and your sister.
Dad, it wasn't the pool.
It was like something pulled me under.
I-I'm gonna figure it out.
Right now, I want you to lie down, get some rest.
Are you sure you're okay? Yeah, dad.
All right, come here.
I love you.
We'll talk later, okay? Here you go, sweetie.
This will help you sleep through the night.
And I can stay here all night? As long as you want.
I was scared.
For Charlie.
I thought he was gonna drown.
You love your brother very much, don't you? I loved mine, too.
Mom, you don't have a brother.
Good night, sweetie.
Peg? Listen, I'm doing this salt thing.
She tried to kill my boy, Peg.
I need help.
Okay, you said you saw her before tonight.
What exactly happened? I did what you told me to do.
I confronted her.
I told her it wasn't my fault she died.
Maybe she sees it differently.
Hello? Peg.
This is Leigh.
Hey, it's Peg.
There's something going on at Nick's house.
I need you to meet me there right away.
What are you doing, Nick? I'm gonna explain everything, honey.

Salt won't work, Nick.
I'm already inside.
Put the gun down, Sarah.
Sarah's gone.
Sarah? Sarah's gone.

I need to know that my wife and kids are okay.
I never stopped thinking about your brother.
It's haunted me.
It's haunted me ever since I did it.
And he did some terrible things.
But he didn't deserve to die, not Not by my hand.

Shh! Have you seen my kids? Kids are sleeping soundly.
What about Leigh? I don't understand.
You were shot.
And, lucky for me, I was wearing a vest.
Look.
I can explain the shooting.
It's not what you think.
Peg told me everything.
And as far as I'm concerned, no-one needs to know what happened here tonight.
Sarah? Hey.
Hey, hey.
Easy, easy, easy, easy.
- Sarah, are you okay? - It's okay.
Do you feel any pain? We're gonna leave you two alone.
Call me if you need anything.
I will.
Thank you.
Okay.
You're okay.
All right? It's all over.
What's over? What happened? You don't remember? Anything? Okay.
I'm gonna explain everything About what happened tonight, about my nightmares.
It all started the night Dylan saved my life.
And he revealed to me He revealed to me what he really is.
He's a vampire.
Emily, there's something we would like to discuss.
It's about mummy and daddy.
Um You see We're different From other parents.
But it doesn't mean that we can't love you as much.
- In fact - Mom I already know.
About both of you.
Well Y-you know what Exactly? About the blood.
About what you really are.
Well I imagine that You must have some questions for us.
Yeah.
Can I ask you anything? Yeah.
Yeah.
You can ask Yes.
Ask anything.
How long have you been like this? Well Um A very, very long time.
In fact I used to walk the streets of London, before there were cars.
And what about you, mom? Well, I'm Not nearly as old as your father.
But I will never be old.
I won't be needing that.
I've dealt with this sort of thing before, Nick.
I know something is haunting you.
And I can tell you that, unless you're willing to come clean about what it is, which you seem reluctant to do, this tea is the only thing that will make her stop.
I came clean.
It's over.
But thanks for your help.
You used to be someone that I couldn't blame You sure you want to come close? Now nothing means more than I'm feeling again ? Look, I I'm sorry for the way I reacted.
Charlie It's okay.
I can't blame you for the way you feel.
You want to know how I feel? I almost drowned yesterday.
I couldn't get to the surface.
I-I could feel myself about to pass out.
And all I could think of was you.
Wherever you are Don't be so long Charlie, it's never gonna be easy.
I know.
The first thing we need to do is get you a steak.
A-a steak? Yeah.
I read that people unique like you, need lots of iron.
We'll just be waiting You okay? No.
No, I'm not okay.
I get why you didn't tell me about this place.
And I understand that it was for our own protection.
But now that I know I don't want to live here anymore.
- Sarah.
- No.
We're leaving the gates.
