Van Helsing (2016) s03e12 Episode Script

Christ Pose

1 Previously on Van Helsing Come back! I promised Axel I would protect you.
- Jolene Walker? - Yes? You're under arrest.
I found her.
I found Jennifer.
They transferred her to some place called The Love Land.
Love Land's the prison colony.
Unless you perform some heinous crime you won't be seeing her any time soon.
- [GUN SHOT] - Where are all the prisoners? They're on the bus heading to Love Land.
The bus is leaving right now.
Stop! Wait! Jolene! Meet me at that place we talked about.
- Polly? - That's my old name.
You're my brother.
Nothing will ever change that, right? Today's the day.
Today is the day.
23 days on this goddamn island.
I'm getting off, I can feel it.
What? You know what? If you're gonna criticize me I really don't wanna hear it, alright? You are not a positive person.
You know, the book and my brains, you can will anything into being, you know that? You could learn a little bit from me.
God, you're so judgmental.
You know what? I thought we could have a nicer good-bye than this.
I was really hoping for it.
We had really good times together, Wilson.
[LAUGHS] Psyche! [LAUGHING] See ya, Wilson, you sucker! Shut your mouth! There's gotta be a way off this goddamn island.
Yeah, I did that.
And I did that.
Man, I've done all of it.
Useless book! You gotta be kidding me.
Saw you standing there, You were looking so nice The cherry lipstick makes you look so Axel? Axel! Hey! Axel! Hey! Hey! Axel! Hey! You said make it here and you would wait as long as it took and you're driving off right now? Hey, no, no, no.
- No, that's not what you were doing? - No, never.
I was road-testing it.
Hey.
- You look good.
- So do you.
- You doing alright? - Yeah.
No fresh holes in you? No, not yet.
- You still got my dog tags.
- Yeah, of course I do.
You wore them through two tours of duty and the apocalypse.
You think I was gonna lose them? Dude, I got these in a gumball machine.
- Shut up.
- Come on.
What's going on with you? Hey.
You know that saying "you can never go home again"? It just turned out to be true.
Ok.
I don't know what that means.
- Wanna get outta here? - Yeah, I do.
Alright.
- Where's your sister? - Ugh.
That's ugh.
[STARTS ENGINE] Rumour is it's in a place called Love Land.
Let me guess.
- No beach resort.
- Nope.
People go in but no one comes out.
Hey! You two! No talking.
A death sentence.
That's what this is.
A one-way ticket to hell.
I shouldn't be here.
I didn't do anything.
I just handed out leaflets about shots causing rage.
Shut your mouth! Don't.
They're gonna kill me.
I'm gonna kill them first.
All of them.
Excuse me? Help.
I need to change seats.
What did I tell you? [GROANS] Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah! [GUNFIRE] Put the gun down! Put the gun down! [GUNFIRE] [GUNFIRE] [CRASH] Go, go, go, go, go! We're almost out of gas.
Might be able to scrounge some up here if we're lucky.
I hope you brought a rabbit's foot.
This place looks like it's been running on empty for a long time.
You wanna walk to Renfield House? You sure you wanna go back there? We could always make a run for it.
Find a safe spot, make some little baby ninjas.
I've gotta be there for Vanessa whether she wants me to or not.
Fair enough.
I go where you go.
Ok, try it again.
[TURNS ENGINE] Told you.
Goddammit.
The fuel's good, it's just gotta be the pump relay again.
Just hand me that tool box? [FAINT TAPPING] - Scarlett? - Yeah? [TAPPING CONTINUES] Do you hear that? [TAPPING CONTINUES] That's a little weird.
[TAPPING CONTINUES] [TAPPING CONTINUES] What is that? Is that Morse code? Sounds like SOS.
[TAPPING GETS LOUDER] [SNARLING] Son of a bitch.
[GUNFIRE] [SNARLING & GROWLING] [GUN SHOTS] [GUN SHOTS] [GUN SHOT] Ahhhhhh!!!!! Axel! Hey! Hey! Hey, it's it's me.
Axel.
Hey.
I I can't see.
I can't see.
Shit.
Stupid mistake.
You couldn't have known.
I shoulda seen there was something jammed in the barrel.
Don't worry, we're gonna get you some help.
Come on, just trust me.
How're you gonna find help? Have a little faith, would ya? I told you, I saw that guy.
He's gotta be around here somewhere.
- What guy? - The one, I told you.
Oh my God.
Hey! Hey! A little help here! Goodness, what have you done to your face? Oh, accident at the tanning salon.
Let's put him down on the cot over here.
Just throw that stuff off.
Ok.
You're good.
Coming forward.
Turn around now.
Here we go.
Ok, and sit.
- Take off your jacket.
- Ok.
It was some old shot gun, blew up on him.
Never did like those things, they are so dangerous.
Oh, come on.
I love guns.
Only thing you can count on in this world.
[LAUGHS] Yeah, well looking at you right now I would beg to differ.
Here lift your head up.
There we go.
[GROANS] Ok, there's a first aid kit in the truck.
Grab that for me, please.
What's your name, son? It's uh Axel.
Happy to make your acquaintance Axel.
No, no, no Simon.
- Hey, Simon.
- You got yourself in quite a pickle didn't ya.
What did you say? Just be still now.
I need to take a closer look.
There's a saline solution in there, grab that for me.
Ok, now you need to try to keep your eyes open.
- Ok.
- I can rinse out the residue.
It's likely gonna hurt.
- Are you sure this is a good idea? - Ok.
Trust me.
Here we go.
[GROANS] Son of a bitch! That's right, good, good, good.
Here we go.
Alright.
[POUNDING] [SCREAMING] Come on! You can do it! - You can do it! - I can't do it! I need something better than this.
I need pliers or a saw or something We don't have anything else, just give it a try again.
Just try again.
[GROANS] You're stuck with me.
It's getting dark.
What do you wanna do? We hold up here.
We lost them crossing that river.
Are you sure? No, but pessimism wasn't working for me so I thought I'd try the opposite.
[SIGHS] Ok, it's my turn.
I don't think we're gonna be able to escape these guys.
This is gonna sound crazy but I was the only person on that bus that didn't want to escape.
It's It's my wife, Jennifer.
I think she's alive.
I think she might be in that place.
You wanted to bust her out? No, just talk to her, if she'd see me.
Tell her I don't know.
I can't go with you.
I know that, but you can't go back, either.
I gotta try.
I gotta find Sarah.
Well I guess we're at an impasse.
You love her.
Yeah.
I do.
And her? It's well, she's um complicated.
It always is.
There's no such thing as pure love.
That optimism didn't last long.
Jennifer and I, we um we got pregnant after we had been together three weeks.
Stupid, right? There we were, so uh we got married, and sometimes you just fall into things.
But it all worked out, right? Oh yeah, it all worked out, right up until I murdered our kids.
It all worked out right until then.
I thought if I could kill myself.
I thought I could clean the slate or balance the scales but you have to deal with the consequences.
I have to face them.
I I have to face her.
There's something I told Sarah once.
You want forgiveness you gotta forgive yourself first.
You think you could do that? You should come eat your fish.
It's getting cold.
Is he gonna be ok? That's not up to us.
They're pretty bad burns.
It's in His hands now.
Really? Just all up to the big man in the sky? [LAUGHS] You don't believe.
My parents taught me a lot of things but that was not one of them.
I mean, take a look around.
This place is overrun by vampires.
Not exactly a solid argument for divinity.
Isn't it? Scriptures of the world are filled with stories of Seriously? Oh, sure.
Sins of man, the consequences of that.
Wouldn't be the first time God gave himself a do-over.
So what, this is just all punishment? For not being faithful? Do not take lightly the discipline of the Lord, for the Lord disciplines the ones that He loves.
Mmm.
Pretty good.
Yeah.
Teach a man to fish, right? Oh, amongst other things.
What were you doing out there? I mean, you just walked right by us when we were fighting all those daywalkers, like you didn't have a care in the world.
I don't.
You don't even have weapons around here.
- I'm a pacifist.
- What? What? Come on, how are you even alive? - Faith? - Why is that so hard to grasp? Because I've seen people ripped apart.
I've seen those things feeding on my friends and turning them and it didn't matter what they believed or not.
No higher power saved them.
So either you're delusional or I don't even know what.
I used to be a lot like you.
Angry, afraid, and trying to protect myself from everything and everyone.
It's called survival.
Mmm.
Let me tell you a little about survival.
Years before the rising I lived different.
I was a long-haul trucker, on the road sometimes 14 hours straight 10 days in a row.
Drugs were the only thing that kept me going.
I paid the price.
Wife left, took my kids, nothing left I cared about.
Considered ending it all right there.
Why didn't you? Well, I was on a stretch of blacktop outside of Fort Worth.
Clearest day you could imagine.
Out of nowhere a twister just dropped right down in the field next to me, bam.
I knew I couldn't stay in my rig.
There was no buildings around, no place to hide, except a lone phone booth set out in an empty parking lot.
So I ran.
Crawled in there on my hands and knees and right then, with the wind ripping all around and the sky going dark as coal, it happened.
I closed my eyes and I prayed.
Please just give me one more chance to be better.
To live right.
To make amends.
Please God, just let me have that.
And then everything went quiet.
The storm disappeared like it never even happened.
I crawled out of there.
My whole truck was gone, everything was wiped clean.
And then I knew.
There's nothing really divine about that story.
It's just luck, plain and simple, and you can't even really will that into being.
You know? You just can't.
Well then, you just keep right on hoping for Axel to get better and I'm gonna pray on it a little while if it's all the same to you.
I'd say you're a sight for sore eyes, but [LAUGHS] Shut up, marine.
Just focus on getting better.
Hey.
I think he's got a fever.
Hopefully.
What does that mean? Well, I am worried he's got an infection.
Ok, but you can treat that, right? Not without antibiotics, no.
I don't I don't think you understand.
I need him to get better.
It's not up to me.
Ok, can you stop with that shit? This is not a spiritual thing right now.
He needs medicine.
Well, there might be a place where we might be able to find it but it's I don't I don't care.
We just gotta go there.
Well, you should stay here with him.
And risk you not coming back? No way.
I don't need your protection.
I'm not asking you.
The faster we do this the better chance he has.
So let's go.
Please.
Come on.
What do I What do I gotta do? Do I need to say that I believe that your God's chosen one before you get on board? You you you think I use my faith as a weapon? I have no idea.
It's the greatest shield you can possibly imagine.
I I I don't understand what that means but I I have to go, now.
Please.
- We have to help him.
- Ok.
There's no charge on the truck, it's about an hour's walk from here.
He won't need it but if it makes you feel better, I'll leave him his gun.
No, he's coming with us.
Well, if we take him he's gonna slow us down.
I don't care.
Boy oh boy.
A firecracker, that one.
Daddy! [MUFFLED VOICES] [VOICES OUTSIDE] one last building here to check.
Copy.
Report to waypoint tango if zero contact.
But orders remain shoot to kill if eyes on targets.
Roger that, out.
[GROANS] [STRUGGLING] [GASPING] Did we I'm not killing him unless we have to, alright? [MUFFLED RADIO SOUNDS] They're coming for us.
They're coming for us no matter what we do.
The gun.
Where's the gun? - Put your hand on the door frame.
- What? Just do it! Come on! Do it! Put your hand on the door frame.
Now look away.
Close your eyes.
[GUN SHOT] We gotta get outta here! Come on.
Go.
Go, go, go, go! This way.
This way! Ok.
- Here we go.
- This is great.
Yeah.
There's gotta be antibiotics in there.
I'll check it out.
Hurry up.
Ask and you shall receive.
That's good.
Yeah, that's good.
Let's get outta here.
One, two, three.
What'd I miss? Your fever is down, so that's good.
Let's see what we got.
[GROANS] Ugh.
Sorry.
Can you open your eyes? I can see light, that's it.
Ok, well what did you expect? You're not gonna get better all at once.
It's gonna take some time.
- Sorry.
- It's alright.
Ok, I'm just gonna change the dressing and and we'll see what tomorrow brings.
Ok, I'm going on.
Lift your head up.
You think she's there already? At Renfield House, Vanessa? Maybe.
She could be.
It's ok.
What's she even doing there? I'm assuming something with the fourth Elder.
You think she's gonna do the right thing, - destroy those totems? - No, I don't.
If she goes dark like that Elder that you found on the island, are you prepared to do what you gotta do? Hey, we should go.
Before it gets dark.
What's that? [FAINT RUMBLING] Oh God.
This is bad.
- What? - This is bad.
It's a bunch of daywalkers and they're walking right at us.
We gotta get Axel, lie down.
You can't fight them.
Yes I can.
I can try.
You'll die.
You know what? At least I can create a diversion.
If you're going out I'm going out with you.
There's no way I'm hanging out in this shit hole by myself.
Nobody's gonna die.
Sit still and quiet.
I promise we'll be safe.
This is not a solution.
Ok, they're coming, they're coming.
[SNARLING AND GROWLING] Stay still.
They're gone.
God's will.
As soon as he's able to walk again we're gonna take off.
And just take the antibiotics with us.
What? The antibiotics are not working.
His fever is back and it's worse.
Ok, well then we'll keep at it.
I I think there's something you need to accept here.
Axel may not be coming back at all.
You said he's getting better.
You said that anything is possible.
I mean, what's all this talk about prayer? Prayer is good, but He's not a genie that grants wishes.
No, apparently not.
Apparently, He's just a cruel son of a bitch that just strikes people down when they don't deserve it.
Look, even if we don't understand Him, God has His reasons.
Ugh.
Stop.
- Scarlett - Enough.
Listen to me.
I gotta tell you some stuff.
We got a lot of time, ok? - Just rest.
- Just let me talk.
I didn't wanna tell you but I don't really know why.
I found my sister.
What? She's been there the whole time, just I lost my sister but you still got time to save yours.
And we will.
As soon as you're feeling better we'll go.
We both know that's not where I'm headed.
Don't say that.
Ok, I'll try to hang on.
I promise you I will, but you gotta go to her.
- Now.
- No.
And if I'm not here when you get back you listen to me No.
I love you, Scarlett.
I always will.
[HISSING] You piece of shit.
[HISSING] Take a good look, it's gonna be your last.
- What in heaven's - Move outta the way! - I I don't - Sit down! Get down! Listen here.
I don't know if you can understand, if this virus makes you smart enough or not, but you are going to bite him.
What're you doing? I don't believe in miracles and I'm out of options.
Bite him! [SNIFFING] I said, bite him! - Alright.
- Stop! It did what you asked, let it go.
Move out of my way! I'm gonna kill him.
That's what I do, ok? He does not deserve to live.
And what will that change? Will it do anything at all for Axel? Let it go.
Get out of here! Go! Run! Oh, come on, Axel.
Come on.
Hey.
Axel.
Hey.
Hey.
Hey.
Axel [CHUCKLES] Peek-a-boo.
[LAUGHS] Now what? Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.
This is the road where the bus crashed.
That means Denver's that way so the prison must be this way.
So this is it? You gotta do what you gotta do.
You're a good man, Phil.
Believe that.
Drop your weapon! Now! Put it on the ground, hands on your head.
Put it on the ground.
- Control, I got 'em.
Both of 'em.
- Please, don't do this.
Shut up! Don't move.
Want me to cuff them or just wait for back-up? The orders were shoot to kill the fugitives.
- Listen.
- Carry out your orders.
I'm surrendering, alright? Take me into custody, alright? You you don't have to do this.
Let let let her go.
I can't do that.
You don't wanna kill me.
You don't have to.
Hunter five, what's your status The others on the bus, they're all dead because of you.
- No.
- No, no, no.
That had nothing to do with us.
Take me in and I'll explain everything.
No.
If I don't follow orders I get sent to Love Land as well.
They know you're alive.
I don't have a choice.
No, no, no! Don't! Don't! [GUNSHOTS] [GROANS] Hunter five, report, goddammit! Two tangos down, I killed them.
Both of them.
[GROANS] Did you Yeah.
Are you ok? I'm fine.
Keys.
Keys, keys, keys.
You took a bullet for me.
Three, actually.
Got 'em.
You can't go back to Denver now.
Are you coming? I help you find your wife, you help me get back to Sarah, deal? If we live that long.
What's your twenty? So I guess this is goodbye.
Oh, why don't we call it "happy trails" instead? We don't know what the future holds.
Our paths might cross again someday, if it's God's will.
I'll give you this.
You're one of the luckiest guys I've ever run into.
Well, I told you luck ain't real, but faith - Ok, I wasn't gonna say anything.
- Mmmhmm? - Remember the ambulance? - Sure.
Ok.
You would have been killed by that feral if it wasn't for me.
So where was divine intervention then? Oh, I'm looking right at it.
He brought you to me, didn't He? Your friend needs something for his eyes.
Look after yourself.
Peace be with you wherever your journey takes you.
Axel? Well, he was different.
He saved your life.
Are you kidding me? I was on my way out if it hadn't been for you.
That is kinda true.
You gotta admit, some crazy shit happened.
Hold on, are you buying this whole prophet in the wilderness thing? No, but how do you explain the daywalkers passing us? A miracle.
[LAUGHS] Seriously, I'm glad you brought me back but you really want me to believe it's 'cause God intervened? No, but I'm just we don't have all the answers, that's all.
I don't.
Mmmhmm.
Looks like I'm not the only one who got a little blinded back there.
[CHUCKLING]
