Warrior Nun (2020) s01e06 Episode Script

Isaiah 30:20-21

All right. Where did you go?
Twenty euros.
I have ten.
Sure. Ten.
All in the details. Let's see.
go up a little more on the
jawline. She has like
Excuse me. Ladies,
have you seen this girl?
- No, haven't seen her.
- No?
Excuse me.
Sorry. Excuse me.
Have you seen this girl right here?
This girl?
Thank you.
Mountain, Mountain.
Okay? Yeah, mountain.
- Thank you.
- Bye.
You're wasting your time.
I've been saying that for weeks.
Stop following me!
Well, there's lots of cops back there.
Had to make sure you didn't
do anything else stupid.
Fuck off.
You left your boyfriend behind.
Can't blame him for freaking out.
I mean, he got a face-full of demon.
Not sure how you could spin that one.
I am not going back.
Well, good.
I keep losing people.
Seems to happen a lot
when you're around.
- Hey, that's not fair.
- Ask Lilith what's fair.
Lilith came after me. What
happened was her fault.
She was trying to protect the OCS.
- She was trying to kill me!
- It would've made things a lot easier.
All right, then. Go ahead. Do it.
Finish what she started. Come on!
If I wanted to, I could've
ended you a long time ago.
But you're right.
Enough is enough.
I'm done.
I'm done chasing you.
I'm done protecting you.
I'm done giving a shit.
Where are you going? Your leg's
fucked up. You can't go anywhere.
This is gonna hurt.
How'd you learn to do that?
I watched a lot of TV.
Like, a lot.
This doesn't change anything, you
know. I'm not going back with you.
You're the one stalking me.
What? I'm supposed to leave
you out here for the wolves?
I've been blamed for
enough shit already.
No one's blaming you
for everything.
And I didn't ask for your help. I
don't want anything to do with you.
C'mon, I know what this is.
I grew up in an orphanage.
You don't think I know all
about reverse psychology?
And you suddenly discovered
empathy was not the plan?
What was the plan then, huh?
Steer clear of the mess
we made back there.
There's a village 15
kilometers from here.
That direction?
That's right.
Dibs on the village.
You go somewhere else.
What happened to empathy?
It was pity.
Nice knowing you.
Why can't you just leave me alone?
I never asked for any of this.
I just want to be normal.
Still want to be normal?
Was that supposed to be a lesson?
No, that was for being an ass.
For a nun, you've got quite the mouth.
Aw. You really thought I was a nun.
How old were you?
And your mom's still in prison?
They gave her a life sentence.
It was self-defense.
Not for a black woman.
But you were there. You
told them what happened.
I was a kid. Prosecutors
ripped me apart.
They caught me in a dozen
lies about other stuff I told,
and said that it was
a pattern of behavior.
That's insane.
My father was a violent man.
And when she pulled that trigger,
she ended both their lives.
And you think you're
the only one with scars?
Well, you're not.
All the sisters have a story.
And if you cared enough
to ask, you'd know.
Beatrice called me a bitch.
I'm paraphrasing.
Well, you are.
I get why.
You were confined to the
bed. You couldn't move.
Everything revolved around
you because it had to.
So you're saying it's not my fault?
I'm saying you're no
better than a child.
Preying on sympathy with your sob
story is only gonna get you so far.
I cannot believe I actually
thought you were a nun.
I'd gotten used to censoring myself,
but you seem to bring it out in me.
Yeah, I have that effect on people.
Yes, you do.
So, if you didn't take the vows,
why censor yourself at all?
I still have to observe them
within reason.
Part of the deal to join the OCS?
One of Father Vincent's stipulations.
I managed to talk him down to just
the Fifth and Eighth Commandments,
and the rest are fair game.
How did you end up at the
Church in the first place?
I bounced around from
foster home to foster home
and ended up going to a
Catholic boarding school
on the state's dime.
I was constantly getting
into fights with everyone.
And Father Vincent found me.
Yeah, he gave me something to fight for.
But you're not one of them.
Not really. They're just using you.
They get what they need from
me. I get what I need from them.
Which is what?
A purpose.
A family.
You and Lilith hated each other.
Well, she was my sister.
Of course I hated her.
Here we go.
You're feeling guilty.
I have nothing to feel guilty about.
So you're feeling sorry
for yourself then?
- No, I'm not.
- Life is hard. I get it.
Especially when you're
on your third one.
You didn't ask to be special. All
you want is to be a regular girl.
Like you were before all
this. A regular dead person.
- Stop.
- Go ahead. Take it.
You want out? You wanna
go back to your old life?
Well, this is your chance.
Go on. Cut it out.
If being you is such a burden, do it.
- Here, I'll help.
- Stop!
- No, do it!
- Stop!
Cut it out!
Are we done?
Yeah. Yeah. We're good.
We're good.
I might need help getting up this hill.
You're actually asking for my help?
Don't get cute.
Somebody got some rest last night.
I slept better last night
than I have in a long time.
Despite the company.
Hey, I just
I just wanted to say I'm sorry.
About Lilith.
Me too.
Is that a thing that happens?
Getting sucked into
- Where do you think she went?
- I don't know.
- Fuck.
- That way?
What you did back there, with the boy
What was his name?
You let him go.
- That couldn't have been easy.
- I don't want to talk about him.
Everything sucks.
Yeah, that about covers it.
I'm not the girl who gets to
run off with the guy, am I?
I think I was in love with him.
No, you weren't.
You don't know that.
God help you.
How do you do it?
Do what?
Suppress them.
What makes you think I suppress them?
This place is amazing.
How long do you think it's been here?
How familiar are you
with the Tartessians?
Forget it. It's been here a while. Mmm!
Uh, who is
I'm I'm Ava.
- Is she
- Yes.
- your friend?
- Let's go eat.
Francisco! Dolores!
Mary is here.
This is my friend Ava.
Is Sister Shannon with you?
It's just us.
Do you hunt them, too?
Did did she say hunt?
The OCS spent some time here last year.
Any friend of Mary is family. Come.
The OCS? Why?
She doesn't know about the eruption?
She's new.
What eruption?
It's the house special.
Best thing on the menu.
What's going on?
The evil?
You should really try this.
Did you bring me here on purpose?
They just happened to have
a demon outbreak last year.
What? You think demons
only hang out in beach cities?
They're everywhere.
And so is the OCS.
There was another town
the same distance away,
but I prefer the food here.
Are you gonna eat?
What did he mean by eruption?
How many were there?
Sometimes there's only one.
Sometimes they swarm.
And we don't know why.
By the time we found out
what was happening here,
things were pretty bad.
People didn't know who to trust,
so they turned on each other.
But I wouldn't worry.
I'm sure you won't
encounter anything like that.
I'm gonna make a call. See if
I can get a ride out of here.
No good?
Oh, I'm not hungry.
Ava, yes?
That's right.
Do you also have the gift?
The gift?
To free the taken.
The possessed?
Oh, you mean exorcism?
No, I
They've been trying to teach me, but
I I don't think I'm cut out for it.
I can see how it is not for everybody.
You need the stomach for it.
Were you
but my wife.
She couldn't be saved.
I'm sorry.
God was with her, and
now she's with God.
Excuse me.
I'm really not sure, but
I don't know how she
could have survived.
And you know Duretti's the
one that sent Lilith after Ava.
Yeah, I know it's not
proof of anything, but
Well, you know what I think.
It's nothing to do with you.
Not right now, anyway.
But it will have to do with me.
Maybe, I don't know.
What the hell is going on?
The Pope is dying.
Vincent heard from a
contact at the Vatican.
They're trying to keep it under wraps.
Well, he is old.
- Does that mean something for the OCS?
- It means something to me.
I'm sorry. I didn't realize
you two were close.
No. I don't know him.
I don't even think he
knows much about the OCS.
It's Duretti.
The Cardinal?
I've been looking into what
happened to Shannon
day you got the Halo.
Everything points to
it being an inside job.
Wait. You think he had
a hand in her death?
I don't know. Not for sure.
But the Pope dying?
That could explain why.
If Duretti's trying to
consolidate power,
maybe he wants to install
a Warrior Nun loyal to him.
And I know that wasn't Shannon.
When Shannon died, she
told me not to trust anyone.
Well, then why are you telling me this?
Well, because at the time,
you weren't anyone.
Well, nun or no, you can't just go
around accusing the
Cardinal of murder
without some seriously hard evidence.
Which I would have by now,
if I wasn't busy chasing
Chasing after me.
Is someone coming for you tonight?
Cradle's empty.
Everyone's on mission.
Without you?
We don't just help people
when it's convenient.
Vincent said he'd have someone
to come out to get me
before end of day tomorrow.
What'd you tell him about me?
That you got off the ferry,
and I haven't seen you since.
You told him I escaped?
You'll want to be gone
before he gets here.
Well, they won't find me.
Who? The OCS, the Cardinal? They're
not the only ones looking for you.
Jillian Salvius.
She sent a team after you.
That's who Lilith shut
down at the orphanage.
Anything else?
I know you think you can just
ignore what you find out there,
but I promise you,
it won't be that easy.
The world's an even scarier place
when you can see all the things in it.
But, hey,
if you want to, go.
Have fun.
Do you.
Or whatever the kids say these days.
Bad memories?
Yeah, something like that.
You don't have a plan at all, do you?
Well, I had one until
you crashed the party.
Well, if you're looking for a
Euro hottie around here to follow,
you're gonna be waitin' a while.
Okay, just so you know,
the kids don't talk like that.
"Just so you know the
kids don't talk like that".
Shut up!
"Shut up!"
You'd think church would
be better attended
in a town that fought demons.
Not if your priest was one of them.
It's good to see you, Sister.
And you, Father.
But please, don't let me interrupt.
Might be too late for that.
What brings you here?
Not trouble, I hope.
No, nothing like that.
Just some, you know,
misfortune of our own doing.
Anything I can do?
We could use a place to lay
our heads for the night.
Of course.
I have plenty of blankets and
clean clothes in the backroom.
We'd appreciate it.
Sister Shannon?
I'm sorry.
I was concerned for her.
Seems I was right to be.
You suspected something?
She visited us a few months ago.
I thought it was to check on
me, but she needed to talk.
What'd she say?
She was doubting herself, her mission.
She didn't get into specifics,
but I got the sense she felt
betrayed by something or someone.
I gave her that medallion.
I hoped St. Christopher
would offer some protection.
I'm glad it found its way to you.
Well, she's in a better place now.
I hope you're right.
How about you?
The headaches, have they improved?
Well, still with me,
but every day a little better.
What was it like?
When you were You know
I don't remember much, but what I do
it was like being a
passenger in your own life.
Your actions are yours, but not yours.
- Does that make sense?
- You weren't yourself.
You're not responsible for anything.
It's taken a long time to realize that.
To even step inside this place again.
How could I preach the Word
of God after what I've done?
The most important thing is
just to keep moving forward.
I owe you and the Sisters everything.
Will you say a prayer with
me, for Sister Shannon?
Of course.
Are you okay?
You're unusually quiet.
Because I'm usually annoying?
Oh, I'd never say that.
You're in a house of worship.
Are you
I mean, I know you didn't
take your vows, but
do you still believe in all this?
I fight demons for a living.
Stands to reason the other
stuff might be real, too.
I suppose.
Father Vincent thinks
that I've been chosen
by God.
And what do you think?
I think I have a super weird
metal thing in my back
that brought me back from the dead.
There has to be some science behind it.
Well, science or something else.
Come on.
Not you, too?
If you weren't supposed
to have it, you wouldn't.
You know, it could've rejected you.
Rejected me?
It has before.
That doesn't make any sense. Are
you saying it can choose its host?
I'm saying what I heard, not
what you need to believe.
You've got to figure
that out for yourself.
So, tomorrow
I haven't changed my mind.
I was just telling you good luck,
in case I don't see you again.
You too.
You need a bedtime story?
Shut up.
Are you there, God?
It's me, Ava.
Time's up, big guy.
If you got a plan, you'd
best let me in on it.
Holy shit.
Is that for me?
That's what I thought.
Father Orozco?
Anybody there?
What are we looking at?
The sunrise.
Is it a special sunrise?
They're all special.
There was a time when we weren't
sure we would see another.
So we appreciate it when it comes.
So you do this every morning?
Celebration of a new day.
Celebrate the new day.
It's beautiful.
We are lucky, no?
What you said before,
about not joining the others.
May I ask why?
I have some things to figure out.
And you hope the answers are out there?
I don't know where else to look.
You don't believe they lie with Him.
I'm not one of them.
I'm not a nun.
I suspected.
How did you come to find them?
They found me.
Did they save you, too?
No, they Well
T technically, yes, but I
don't owe anything to them.
They want something from you?
They need my help.
And you don't want to help them.
It's not that I don't want to
help them I just it just
I don't I don't know.
I don't know.
I was like you once.
Did you find what you were looking for?
Searching for oneself is
a journey for a lifetime.
Life is what happens in between.
- This looks good.
- Mm-hmm.
- Don't just stand there.
- Hmm?
Come on, give us a hand.
Oh, I don't know my way
around a kitchen, so
And what about eggs?
Everybody knows how to make eggs.
No, I've literally never
stepped inside of a kitchen.
Oh, all that TV and no
cooking shows. Hmm.
How can that be true?
It's a long story.
Yeah, she was spoon-fed her entire life.
Yeah. That about covers it.
If you're gonna live on your
own, you should learn
- something
- All right.
So, what are these?
Mateo's secret family recipe,
but he won't part with it.
You, I don't trust, but Ava?
Oh! Oh!
- Did you hear that?
- Oh, okay.
- Yeah, I see how it is.
- All right.
How'd you learn to cook?
I have a life, you know?
It's not all exorcisms and prayer.
So what's the deal?
The deal?
Yeah. The one you made with Vincent.
You come and go as you please.
You don't answer to anyone, really.
You get away with whatever
the fuck you want.
When you have value, you have control.
The thing is I know my
worth, and I refuse
to let anyone tell me how to use it.
That's the deal.
And you could have that too.
Now take these plates out to
the floor before they get cold.
All right.
Sorry. Ooh!
Ooh! Sorry.
You're not so bad at this.
I could always use an extra hand
around here, if you're looking.
Which one is it?
That one.
Wait, we can't kill him.
I wasn't planning on it.
How do you get it out of them?
If you'd finish your training, you'd
I wasn't ready, but I'm ready now.
I need to know.
All right.
Come on.
Everyone out, please.
Not you.
I'm sorry, friend, but you
need an attitude adjustment.
Stay on him. Stay on him.
Hey! Hey! Okay, calm down.
Calm down.
Yeah, this one's gonna need
a little extra encouragement.
- What does that mean?
- The host, make it nonviable.
You mean, like hurt him?
Don't look at me. Get him!
Get him, Ava! Get him!
Here. Threaten him with this.
In the Name of the Father,
the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
Most glorious Prince of
the Heavenly Armies
Does that actually do anything?
It's for their benefit, but can't hurt.
Begone, Satan, master of deceit,
enemy of human salvation!
Is it out?
I think so.
Finish it. Finish it off.
That sound
It's like it was alive.
Is he gonna be okay?
Some aspirin and a few
months of emotional torment,
and he'll be good as new.
Come on. Come here.
Are there more of them?
Uh, I don't think so.
But Ava's gonna stick around for
a little while, just to make sure.
Bless you, Sister.
- A word?
- Yeah.
What's going on?
You suddenly make a plan last night?
Then you have time.
The OCS doesn't know you're here.
Stay one more night. Keep an
eye out for anything weird.
And then, after that, you can go
wherever it is you're going.
What if there are more of them?
There's always more.
Don't worry. You'll handle it.
Take this.
You'll need it.
That's for me.
I hope you find what you're looking for.
