Previously on "The Whispers" - Who are you talking to? - Drill.
He says you're "it.
" My friend Drill.
He speaks through the lights.
Jackson Bellings, age 10.
Detonated a homemade bomb at Westings Designs.
"Under the influence of an imaginary entity named 'Drill.
'" There was someone across the street, watching the building.
Clearly this guy is Drill.
He's convincing the children to do stuff.
You know who he is.
It might be my husband.
He was my patient last night.
He doesn't remember anything.
All he knew was the last three months.
But I've been having these dreams.
I don't know what they mean, but they're important.
A maze? Where does it lead to? Your 8-year-old daughter downloaded top-secret defense files? If Sean is here, why didn't he come home? Ever since you were with her, everything has gone wrong.
There's something I need to do.
You're gonna help me.
Mayday, mayday! I'm hit! Repeat! I'm hit! Captain Bennigan, save yourself, come home.
No way I'm letting this guy go.
I got it.
I'm coming home.
Made it safe and sound.
Talk to me.
You can't just leave like this, Sean.
Say something.
I can't I can't do this anymore.
These past two years, ever since Henry's Don't.
Don't blame me for that.
I don't.
I don't.
I don't.
God, Sean, when did it get so hard to talk to you? I don't know, Claire.
Why don't you ask your conscience? You can't just volunteer for a mission And leave.
We have to talk about these things.
If you think running away is gonna fix anything Who says I want to fix this? Don't say that, not after everything we've been through.
Why? Why did you do it, Claire? Please.
Answer me one question Do you love him? No.
But you had to think about it.
What about Henry? What do I tell him? Claire? Aren't you going into the office? No.
Mom Claire, what is it? He's alive.
Sean is alive.
Aw, honey I No, I know.
It sounds crazy, but I'm not crazy.
I saw him.
And he saw me, too.
Only it was like It was like he was looking through me, like Like he didn't even know who I was.
I talked to a doctor who treated him two days ago.
She said that that clearly he's experiencing some kind of of memory loss.
At least that explains why he didn't come home.
This wouldn't be the first time he didn't.
No, that was different, Mom.
He blamed himself for what happened to Henry, and he just he couldn't no, he didn't blame himself you did.
Decisions are easy.
It's living with the consequences that's the hard part.
And for a while Neither of us was very good at that.
Sean was not a perfect husband.
God knows I was not a perfect wife.
But, he Mom, he's back, and What they are saying about him, what they think he's done I can't believe it.
I have to find out what's really happening.
We have a 50-mile search perimeter in effect.
All state and local uniforms are on alert.
I'm confident, sir.
He can't hide too long.
And Agent Bennigan, where's her head on this? Well, she hasn't come in.
She hasn't answered her phone.
But if But if I may be frank, sir You think she's a liability.
I think any involvement would be seriously imprudent.
I'm not gonna disagree with you there.
This one's yours.
Thank you, sir.
But let me just put a little perspective on this for you you're hunting down a man thought to be the deceased husband of one of your colleagues.
Whether he is in fact guilty, your investigation will bare that out.
But let's save the judgment on Agent Bennigan.
She'll take care of her business, you take care of yours.
Jag 37! Jag 37! I am off flight plan! Repeat, I am off flight plan! Do you read me, Captain Bennigan? Please respond.
I'm losing altitude! Jag 37! Captain Bennigan, can you hear me? Does anyone hear me? I'm losing altitude.
Do you copy? Jag 37! I'm punching out! Eject, eject, eject! I've lost him.
I I got nothing.
He's not on the radar.
Captain Bennigan, do you read me? Over.
Sir? I'm sorry, but they're ready for you.
Security footage from the bombing at Westings.
With all due respect sir, why are we looking at a place Sean Bennigan was a month ago? The last confirmed spotting of the suspect was last night.
Sean Bennigan is a highly trained soldier.
If anyone knows how to hide, it's him.
We need to go back and learn what he's after.
And what am I always telling you guys? Sometimes the best way to find where a man is going Find out where he's been.
Thank you.
Jackson Bellings, age 10.
Mother worked at Westings that's how he got inside.
Three casualties.
Any sign of Bennigan? Not in any of the footage.
Play it again.
Stop right there.
What's he looking at? Uh, s-slow it down.
Frame by frame.
In the corner.
Looks like he's waiting for something.
Not something someone.
There's there's a door in the hallway.
- Someone just walked in.
- Whose office is that? David Miller, one of the victims.
He wasn't just a victim.
He was the target.
Where are you taking me? Please, I have money.
I can get you $10,000 right now maybe more.
I was supposed to be at work by now, they'll be looking for me.
Are you listening? That woman, the one who's looking for me, who is she? She's with the FBI.
What do they know about me? So, you said his name was Drill, right? And what makes Drill such a good friend? I don't know.
Is he a good listener? And what else? He doesn't keep secrets from me.
He always tells me the truth.
And that's important to you, knowing the truth? But you can't actually see Drill.
Isn't that right? Why does everyone care about that? Because they're worried about you.
Drill tells you to do things things that get you in trouble.
Like Daddy's computer? Exactly.
Now, you knew that was wrong, didn't you? But Drill said he needed me and I was the only one who could do it.
Minx Now, you're 8 now.
You know the difference between right and wrong, real and imaginary.
You don't have to invent friends, Minx.
There are a lot of people, real people in your life, who want to be there for you.
But Drill needs me.
Drill's not real.
Do you understand what I'm trying to tell you, Minx? That I should stop playing with Drill because he isn't real? Exactly.
So, right here, right now it stops.
Can you do that, Minx? Good.
It's just What? I don't think Drill's gonna like this.
The best way to find where someone's going is to find out where they've been.
The bombing target David Miller, low-level tech at Westings.
We interviewed his daughter, said he was acting strange in the weeks prior to his death, thought he was being followed, people were tapping his phones.
Turns out, maybe he was right.
What do you mean? Well, two minutes before he was killed, he sent an e-mail.
Somehow it got corrupted in transit, bounced back, never reached the intended recipient.
The main body of the e-mail was un-retrievable, but the attachment We managed to salvage this.
What exactly am I looking at here? We're not sure, but check out who the recipient of the e-mail was supposed to be page three.
You're sure this is him? Yeah, the head of the nuclear regulatory commission.
I need to know where he is now.
Vitals are looking stable.
Diagnosis good.
I'm sorry, doctor.
I didn't realize you were with a patient.
It's okay.
I'm just examining my mommy.
Well, she's lucky to have such great care.
Oh, she does.
She has my friend.
He's going to fix her.
Oh, he sounds like a great friend.
He's the best friend in the world.
Hey, uh, maybe you can help me.
I'm looking for Harrison Weil, and I was told I could find him here.
That's my daddy.
Are you gonna ask him the questions like they were asking me? Who was asking you questions? Claire.
Do you know her, too? Will Daddy be home for dinner? Don't know, sweetie, but I'm sure he'll try.
Daddy always tries.
Why don't you run ahead and wait in the car, and I'll be there in just a minute.
So? Well, I think we made some really good progress.
Minx seems to understand that Drill is not real.
Ah, I can't tell you what a relief that is to hear.
But I still think she should continue to see me, you know, get to the real root of the problem.
What do you? The fact that an imaginary friend manifested in her life at this age is actually quite unusual.
Now, most times, this kind of behavior is indicative of a lack of stability, something she's having a hard time understanding, maybe problems at home or My husband and I, we're Working out some things.
It's fine.
I mean, lots of families have problems, right? Of course they do.
I just wanted to offer.
If you were interested Oh, thank you.
It's just not really a good time right now.
I can't do it.
The doctor says you're not real, Drill.
He won't let me play with you anymore.
Drill, stop it.
What do you want? Oh.
Shaving cream.
There scissors.
Ask for the restroom.
That'll be $18.
Bathroom? Around the side of the building.
What the hell are you doing, Sean? You know they're going to find you.
They haven't found me yet.
You said you needed help.
What do you want me to do? Where are we going? I don't know.
What do you mean you don't know? You kidnapped me for a reason! You must know! I don't know.
I never know not until I get there.
That's how this works.
Hello? Hello.
Claire Bennigan's line.
But We got him.
Uh, so, your daughter said the FBI had been asking some - questioning her.
- Yeah, they wanted to talk to my daughter, something to do with my wife's accident, but why is the D.
Suddenly interested No, sorry.
We're not.

Look again.
I have never seen that man before.
Listen You need help.
That's why you're here.
No, I mean professional help.

And I also understand that some hawalas are used to move illicit money.
I don't care.
I don't care what you're doing.
I'm just I'm just looking for this man.
He's my husband.
I'm not leaving until I get some answers.
The numbers on the receipt, it's an account.

Okay, well, how does he get them to help? Brainwash, bribery No, that's how this Imaginary friend comes in.
- A what? - I don't know.
I don't know how Sean does it, but each of these kids claims to have a friend named Drill that no one else can see.
