The Returned (2012) s01e03 Episode Script


What are you doing?
I’m going home.
My shift starts at 5 am.
What’s the point
of sleeping for like three hours?
You’d better not sleep at all.
I can help with that.
I need to sleep.
I was on call three nights
in a row since Monday.
The night is young, come on.
– You’re gonna miss the fireworks.
– I’ll watch from my apartment.
You can go back there without me.
I won’t stop you.
Snow White seems to be into you.
Jealous? I love it.
Stay, please.
I’ll show you my superpowers.
Batman doesn’t have superpowers.
He just has a lot of money
and a few gadgets.
Come on, Julie!
You’re disappointing, Catwoman.
We’ll meet again.
It’s over.
Hi, Julie.
There is quite a turnout.
Mr. Costa was very popular.
The little boy is not with you?
Funerals are not really for kids.
Hello, Laure.
Hello, Thomas.
It’s so nice to see Adèle smile.
We haven’t seen her like that
for a long time.
Hello, Pierre.
How are you?
Hi, Adèle.
How are you?
I heard about your wedding.
How are you?
You’re OK?
How is Camille?
She stayed at home.
Do you think there are others?
– Why are you asking me that?
– Léna thinks she met another one.
– Where?
– At the Lake Pub.
What if there were others?
What if Camille wasn’t the only one?
It’s possible, but…
Then she would no longer
have to hide.
She shouldn’t go out, for now.
She can’t stand staying at home.
– I understand how she feels.
– It’s not doing her any good.
What do you know
about that other one?
His name is Simon.
I’ll look into it.
Michel Costa was born here,
and he died here.
It’s the end of a chapter
in the history of our town.
He who was the school teacher
of many of us
will leave a gaping hole
in our hearts, as…
his kindness…
his character…
and his humanism
had a profound impact on us.
Did you hear about Lucy Clarsen?
A girl who was working in that bar,
the Lake Pub.
Anyway, she was going home,
then some guy
brutally assaulted her in the tunnel.
He ate her stomach.
It’s like seven years ago
all over again.
I had terrible nightmares
at the time…
What’s wrong?
Michel had always shown
great courage.
And it’s not
because of his final deed
that we should change
our opinions of him.
He lived most of his life
without the love of his life, Viviane,
who was gone much too soon.
But unlike what Michel believed,
I’m sure that they are now together,
that they will be walking a path…
that had diverged too early.
Can I have a smoke?
You’re afraid I might get cancer?
Don’t tell your mom.
You and Mom broke up?
Why are you saying that?
You’re nice to her.
It’s odd.
And you sleep in the guest room.
It couldn’t be more obvious.
Let’s say that for some time now,
we are on a break.
How long has it been?
Two years.
– Where do you live now?
– I have a studio apartment in town.
Were you the one who left?
Not really.
It was complicated
after the accident.
I was out of control,
and your mom got sick of me.
I guess it wasn’t easy.
It was hard,
especially for your sister.
I know.
I’ve lost my sister too.
Are you hungry?
– Where are the wooden spoons?
– I think they’re here.
We’re back!
– How are you?
– Great.
I’m gonna get changed.
I have class.
Come in.
You’re really hot.
You must be popular with boys.
– You’ve had sex with Frédéric yet?
– What?
– I’m not dating Frédéric.
– Why not?
You did like him.
And he liked you too.
We had a deal.
You were freed from our deal
after the accident.
After school,
I’ll look for the guy I talked about.
You’ll tell me how it goes?
Maybe we’ll open a club.
What’s that?
Is it a scar?
Can I get dressed?
It has dropped again.
2 meters since yesterday.
When was the last check?
Two years ago.
Everything seemed normal at the time.
How long will it take?
Hard to say.
– Three or four days.
– That long?
It’s a big area.
Here we go.
The robots are deployed.
If there’s a crack, they’ll find it.
When will I be released?
In a few hours.
Sooner if you gave us your real name.
You’ll be summoned very shortly.
We need an address.
I don’t have one.
Then where are you going?
Where will you stay?
I’ll figure something out.
You’ll have to stay in town.
If you disappear,
you’ll be in trouble.
Take him back to his cell.
This is Bruno from the police station.
Is this a good time?
How can I help you?
I have a lost sheep for you.
What did he do?
He hit the waiter at the diner
with a beer mug.
That’s something.
You should come and pick him up.
– His name’s allegedly Simon Delaître.
– All right.
I’ll be there.
I’m heading out for half an hour,
all right?
See you later.
Where would we go?
It doesn’t matter.
Somewhere nobody would know her.
Where she could live a normal life,
and where she would be safe.
– Where she could breathe.
– I don’t know…
I’m off.
See you later.
– Wait, I’m taking you.
– Whatever.
Think about it.
It’d be a good opportunity for Camille.
And also for us, as a couple.
Come in.
We got nothing.
Nobody saw anything.
It’s a deserted place at night.
We could go and question Julie Meyer.
You know…
She was assaulted
at the same place seven years ago.
– We call her the “unfinished meal”…
– I know that case, thanks.
Maybe she has a better recollection
of what happened by now.
I can question her, if you like.
Are you sure?
All right.
I’ll go alone.
You go find more information
about Lucy Clarsen.
All right, Lieutenant.
OK, bye.
Have you told anyone about Camille?
I told many people.
I even started a fan club
with many members.
I’m not stupid.
I won’t talk about it.
No one would believe me anyway.
Your mom and I decided
it’d be better if we moved.
Staying here will always be
too complicated for her.
What about me?
– It’s complicated for me, too!
– Stop it!
It’s more difficult for her!
You think everything would be perfect
if we lived somewhere else?
I don’t know.
I just know that we can’t stay here.
Sorry, but that’s the way it is.
You made up with your dad?
Why are you here?
It’s been a while.
– How are you?
– Fine.
May I come in?
Not now.
– You heard about the waitress?
– What do you want?
– For further investigation…
– Why haven’t you come before?
You didn’t come to see me.
Not once in seven years.
You didn’t want me to come.
I have nothing to say.
We’ll go to the Helping Hand
and eat something.
If you’re tired,
we have a dormitory for visitors.
We can give you some money too.
Who are you?
Santa Claus?
I try to help people
who have strayed from their paths.
– You think I have strayed?
– I don’t know.
Have you?
Do you know Adèle Werther?
Yes, a little.
Everybody knows her story.
What story?
Her fiancé died on her wedding day.
What happened to him?
He was hit by a car.
Did you know him?
I feel like…
Have we met before?
You’ve been here a long time?
But I had to leave.
I don’t mean to pry, but why…
Drop me here.
Drop me here!
Wait, I can help you.
I don’t think so.
Come to the Helping Hand
if you change your mind.
How do I look?
Is that Léna’s?
Does it look good on me?
I can go buy the right size for you,
if you like.
Can I go with you?
It won’t take long.
And there’s nobody at this hour.
No one followed her
from the Lake Pub to the tunnel.
She went in, then 20 minutes later…
Go back.
We tried to zoom in,
to brighten it up…
That’s the best we have.
Assign additional staff with you.
– Keep going.
– All right, Captain.
– Where is he?
– Who?
The guy who assaulted
the waiter at the diner.
The investigation was over.
We had no reason to keep him.
– It’s the procedure.
– I don’t care!
A crime was committed,
and you release our only suspect?
I didn’t know.
That happened
the day after an attempted murder.
Don’t you think
it deserves further investigation?
But I told him
he couldn’t leave town.
And surely, he told you
in which hotel he’s staying?
Keep me posted.
I’ll call you back.
Hello, Captain.
May I help you?
The guy you picked up earlier,
where is he?
No idea.
I suggested that he came here,
but he had something urgent to do.
– What?
– I didn’t ask.
He probably wouldn’t have answered.
He wasn’t exactly forthcoming.
But he did talk about Adèle.
Does she know him?
And may I ask
why you’re interested in him?
If you see him, let me know.
Or I’ll become his partner in crime,
is that right?
That’s right.
I was just thinking about you.
That’s how it works.
Every time you think about me,
here I am.
That’s convenient.
Maybe it won’t last.
I should probably leave.
Don’t I get to decide?
Yon don’t need me.
You have Thomas.
Do you know him?
He seems
to be taking good care of you.
Don’t you love him?
I do.
I love you too.
I’m dead.
You came back to tell me
I should forget you?
That’s not really a clever move.
I’m sorry.
Before you leave…
I’d like you to meet someone.
It’s Ms. Payet.
I know you’re here.
Why did the police come by?
– That’s none of your business, is it?
– He’s illegal?
You adopted the little boy illegally?
– What?
– I saw something about this on TV.
– I know I’m right.
– You watch too much TV.
We are related.
I know you’re lying.
What you’re doing is illegal.
I hate to say this,
but I’m gonna have to turn you in.
– For the kid’s sake and your sake too.
– Get the fuck out!
If he’s still here tomorrow,
I’m calling the police.
What the fuck?
Crazy bitch!
Fucking die!
– Isn’t she pretty?
– Djoual.
What do you think about this one?
It’s cute, right?
I like this one too.
This one. It’s lovely!
– Really pretty.
– It’s really pretty.
I’m gonna try on the denim skirt too.
Thank you.
– Excuse me, may I?
– Sure.
Thank you.
– How are you?
– I’m fine.
Has Pierre told you about Yan and me?
We’re expecting a baby.
That’s amazing news.
You don’t seem fine.
I’m fine.
Why don’t we see you
at the Helping Hand anymore?
Is it because of Jérôme?
Not at all.
You broke up, didn’t you?
You know, everybody knows.
It’s a small town.
And we know how badly
he treated you and Léna.
Thank you, Sandrine.
I appreciate it.
Hello, ma’am.
I’m Alice, Léna’s cousin.
I knew there was
a family resemblance.
I’m gonna go.
Call me.
I will. Bye.
– Goodbye, Alice.
– Goodbye, ma’am.
Is that Audrey’s mom?
Excuse me, is Toni here?
I don’t know.
– Sorry, I didn’t mean to startle you.
– No, you didn’t.
I’m actually his older brother.
You don’t look alike at all.
It fucking stinks.
I don’t know what it is.
The plumber
can’t come until tomorrow.
They say the town sewers back up.
Do you remember the weird guy
who came to the bar yesterday?
Brown hair.
I talked to him.
More or less.
Do you know him?
Have you seen him before yesterday?
I don’t think so.
You don’t happen to know
where he lives?
I don’t know him!
Don’t get mad.
Let me know if he comes back.
I will.
You never told me you had a brother.
Don’t forget what I asked.
I won’t.
– See you later.
– See you.
What are you doing here?
She seems nice.
What’s her name?
It’s safer
if you go back to the house.
It sucks being all alone in the house.
It used to be you, me and Mom.
– Are you gonna be home soon?
– I don’t know.
We could go hunt together, huh?
– You still like to hunt?
– I rarely go, now.
I saw you took good care of my gun.
It’s as good as new.
We could probably go tomorrow?
I don’t know.
The bar keeps me busy these days.
But I can help you.
No, you can’t.
Go back to the house.
It’s for the best.
I can’t believe you’re the boss now!
– Mom must have been proud.
– I’m not the boss.
I’m the manager.
It’s all the same.
I’m gonna go.
I’m off to work.
Remember to lock the door, OK?
Hello, sweetie.
Is there a problem?
She left?
Come on in.
Are you hungry?
I’m gonna make you something.
What would you like to eat?
– Hello, Léna.
– Hi.
– I’m not a tutor anymore.
– I know. I gave up anyway.
You wanna come in?
Actually, I need to talk to a guy
who knows you.
His name is Simon.
– Simon?
– Do you know him?
He asked me about you.
Did he come to see you?
But you do know him?
– Where did you see him?
– At the Lake Pub, yesterday.
– And you talked to him?
– Yeah.
I just need to know something.
You know where he lives?
I don’t know who you’re talking about.
I don’t think I know him.
I might stay for a few days,
after all.
Come with me.
I’ll show you
where you’re going to sleep.
Did you find easily?
Yeah, I did.
Here we are.
Choose any bed you want.
They don’t seem like cozy beds at first,
but you sleep well in them.
That’ll do.
Do you believe in God?
Not really.
But you believe
in resurrection, don’t you?
I, for one, believe.
You think it can happen to anyone?
– Maybe to Him…
– Maybe you’re not anyone.
Don’t worry.
I’m sure things
will start to make sense.
He won’t leave you alone.
As for me, anyway,
I won’t leave you alone.
It’s over.
Sorry, I didn’t mean to intrude.
It’s OK.
So, have you thought about it?
I don’t know.
Camille feels at home, here.
I’m not sure if it’s a good idea.
You think?
I think everything here
has changed for her.
She’s completely lost.
So are we.
You smell good.
I love you.
I’m sorry.
– Sorry.
– It’s OK.
It’s too soon.
Have a smoke with me?
– Is it because of your dad?
– Leave me alone.
I’m Alice, Léna’s cousin.
She’s here?
Can I have a smoke?
Wait, it’s not lit.
You’re Léna’s cousin?
She’s never told you about me?
In my case, however,
she’s told me a lot about you.
Were you hiding your cousin from us?
This place is cool, indeed.
– You drink?
– Like you guys.
You sure look like each other.
Do my parents know you’re here?
Of course.
They wouldn’t let out
a 15-year-old girl.
You’re 15?
– You should go home.
– Or what?
Or I’ll call them.
– It’s cool.
– Stay out of this.
You don’t want me to stay?
You want me to leave you
with Frédéric and your buddies.
– Exactly.
– You can stay.
What’s up with you?
What are you doing?
What’s wrong?
– What?
– What’s this?
