Wayward Pines (2015) s01e09 Episode Script

A Reckoning

- Previously on Wayward Pines.
- Theresa, there's been an accident.
I want whatever's left of the car transferred here.
We're taking over.
I don't know where Ethan is.
That is the truth.
- Ethan Burke for Adam Hassler.
- He's not available at the moment.
If there's time, I want to call it off.
But it's done, Adam.
Help! I need a doctor.
- What happened? - The truck exploded.
- People are going to want to hear from you.
- Does it matter what I think? Ben, you survived a terrorist attack.
You're a hero now.
Give me a reading on Ruby's chip.
She's at home in bed.
She must've taken her chip out and left it in her room.
I wonder how many more people are home in bed.
- What happened at the fence? - Two got away, four got taken, and Kate's in jail.
Your husband blew up a truck last night on Main Street.
- Nearly killed my son.
- I'm so sorry, Ethan.
Something must have gone wrong with the timer.
It was meant to go off at the fence.
I say we just keep driving till we hit San Francisco.
- This time tomorrow, we'll be drinking beers by the bay.
- I can't.
Come on.
Come on! We made it! - Yeah! Kill her! - Yeah! Kill her! Is this what you want? Do it! Do it! Is this really what you want? Ripped By mstoll Hey! Where'd you go? You said you were going to bring us some food.
God, I can't take another minute of this.
- I'm going to lose it, I swear.
- Franklin.
You're making everybody nervous.
Well, shouldn't we be? Where the hell is Harold and the rest of 'em? Thankfully not in here.
Maybe they actually made it out.
Or maybe they're dead, just like us.
- We're not dead.
- Well, we're as good as.
The only reason we're not is because the sheriff's busy.
If he wasn't busy, he'd probably drag us right out onto Main Street, slit our throats.
Ethan is not Pope.
He's not gonna do that.
- You're probably right.
He'll probably just shoot us.
- Franklin! You add to that the fact that we just about killed his little kid.
You think this guy's going to let us live? Yeah.
Yeah, I do.
- What makes you so sure? - Because I know him.
No, you don't.
You knew him.
The guy you knew is gone.
Now he works for Wayward Pines.
He's just a patsy, working like everybody else taking orders, collecting a paycheck.
No, no, no.
We're dead.
We're dead.
We're dead.
Excuse me.
Excuse me.
You cannot go in there.
We're looking for the sheriff.
Yeah, well, he's not in right now.
Well, where is he? That's none of your business.
Oh, I think it is.
Class One of the academy.
It's a real honor.
It's not an honor.
It's a responsibility.
See, we take the rules of this town seriously, unlike your boss.
Excuse me, but Ethan Burke takes the rules of the town very seriously.
Then why is he sheltering terrorists? I thought blowing up kids was against the rules.
Wouldn't you say so, Sean? They put Amy in the hospital.
I'd say that's against the rules.
And if you break the rules, you have to be reckoned.
That's the sheriff's duty.
What the sheriff does and doesn't do is none of your damn business.
You see, that's where you're wrong.
The future of this town is in our hands.
Not yours, and not your sheriff's.
So you tell him that if he doesn't do what he needs to do if he doesn't reckon those traitors soon someone's going to do it for him.
I will tell him no such thing.
Now you skedaddle or I'm having the three of you locked up.
- Do you hear me? - "Skedaddle"? You really want to put us in a cell with those traitors? Get the hell out of here.
Did you hear me? I said get the hell out of here.
Come on, Jason.
Let's go.
Let's go.
You tell him.
Clear out that area.
We've got this under control.
Under control? They breached the perimeter.
We're fortunate to still be alive.
You have to stop this now.
I will.
I've got Harold in custody.
I'll get him to talk to find out where the others are.
Yes, you said that before.
They put your son in the hospital, and now now this? This happened because they didn't know what was really out there because you didn't tell them.
No, this happened because what you're doing isn't working anymore.
The people of Wayward Pines are familiar with a certain way of life a way of life where people who break the rules are punished.
They're going to demand retribution, release.
And if you deny them that, then they're going to take the law into their own hands.
More deaths will follow.
You have to act decisively and swiftly to stop all this.
This group They're weak.
They're reckless.
Why have they taken so long to do all this? Why? Because they're doing what their leader told them.
Without Kate Ballinger, they're nothing.
Reckon her, and you could stop all this.
Look, I told you I need to do things my way.
If you could have killed the Easter bomber before he acted, would you? Don't make the same mistake twice.
Don't wait till it's too late.
Just consider.
One life to save Wayward Pines.
- Sit down, Harold.
- I want to see my wife.
We're going to have a little chat first.
I'm not talking till I see Kate.
What, are you going to call your lawyer? Come on.
Sit down.
You know, I think it's strange, you being so worried about Kate when she's all cozy in a cell.
That's the one I'd be worried about.
What happened to Alan? Well, he made it past the fence.
- He made it? - Yeah.
About 50 yards.
And here's Eric.
Or maybe that's Alan and that's Eric.
It's hard to tell.
What did you do to them? Does it look like I did this? Harold, if I want to kill somebody I'm going to shoot 'em, I'm not going to eat 'em.
That fence that your friends tried to destroy it's there for a reason.
Because there are things beyond it things a lot worse than me.
That's a lie.
You're lying.
Then what do you think that is? You think that's a leg, or you think that's an arm? Look, you don't have to believe me.
I'm either a psychopathic cannibal or maybe what maybe I'm telling the truth.
Any way you slice it, I don't see where you have much of a choice.
I need names of everyone in your group or what happened here to your friends is going to happen to every single person in this town including you and your wife.
Do you understand? Do you understand me? Mm-hmm.
How's he doing? He's He's good.
He slept through the night, yeah.
Oh, that's so good.
That's really good.
- And how is Amy doing? - Oh, she should be going home soon.
- She was very lucky.
- Yeah.
- Let's face it, they both were, hmm? - Yeah.
Theresa, I don't want to frighten you but I think you deserve to know.
There's been another attack.
Someone drove a truck through the fence.
Two died.
- Where's Ethan? - Oh, no, he's fine.
He's fine.
He He was lucky as well.
Theresa I know that Ethan has shared with you what's at stake here.
- Mm-hmm? - Mm-hmm.
Do you believe him? I don't know what to believe anymore.
That's good.
It's very important to question things, hmm? Especially right now, when things are so broken.
Why don't you go home, get some rest.
Hmm? We'll take care of Ben.
Oh, and I wouldn't take Main Street for right now.
It's not safe.
Take Boxwood home instead, hmm? See what you find.
I need to find these people.
Easy enough.
Harold broke? He gave me 14 names.
- I'm going to need some help tracking them down.
- Of course.
Shouldn't be hard.
They're all together.
Where are they? - Biergarten.
- Bring it up.
They're not there.
They took out their chips.
They're off the grid.
Any available neurologist to ER2.
Any neurologist to ER2.
- 302 B.
- All right, hang on.
Roya, 6-8-7.
Roya, 6-8-7.
We need a GCS.
Her levels are dropping, rapidly.
We didn't see that.
Go ahead and intubate.
All right, she's right at nine.
She's diagonal.
What happened? Please move quickly.
Amy? Amy! - Ben, no, you can't come in here.
- What happened? You can't come in here right now.
- She's had a swelling in her brain.
- What? We have to perform a surgery.
Ben, you cannot go in there.
- No, she was in my She was fine.
- I know.
I know.
She was lucid not long ago but she's had an epidural hemorrhage, sweetheart, okay? We're doing everything we can.
You've got to trust us, Ben.
Please trust us.
Oh, sweet boy.
Shh, shh, shh.
Start by concentrating on the perimeter.
We have to prioritize the fence.
This is going to take forever.
We've got over 5,000 cameras.
Yeah, well, what if there's a blind spot.
We're going to find them.
Has there been any more news? They won't know anything for a couple hours.
Ben, you must take comfort in the fact that you are not alone in this.
There is great strength in unity.
It will carry us through any storm, no matter how fierce.
You told them? About Amy? Of course.
They deserve to know.
We're all in this together.
Ben, have you thought any more about our conversation yesterday? I-I don't know.
Everyone wants to hear from you, Ben.
They need to.
This town, it's coming apart.
I'm sure you heard.
There was another attack last night.
Yes, on the fence this time.
Yet still there has been no reckoning.
You remember, as the first generation of this town you are a leader now.
Not me.
And not your father.
Hey, you guys might want to take a look at this.
There's something going on at the hospital.
Ben! What's happening? Where's Amy? Where is she? Let him talk.
I know that you're all worried.
I am too.
Amy's in surgery right now and they won't know anything for a couple more hours.
But I saw you all and I just wanted to say that I'm glad you're all here.
A-Amy's a good person.
And And what those people did to her was wrong.
They broke the rules of our town and those rules exist for a reason 'cause without them, we're all in danger.
I just heard about another attack.
I just wanted to say that I-I'm sorry that all this happened.
And I'm sorry that my dad failed this town.
Well, when is your dad going to reckon them? - He's right.
- Yeah.
- He's not going to.
- Why? - Wait.
- You can't leave.
Arlene? What's going on? Help! We're in here! Let us out! Let us out! What's going on? Arlene.
Give me the keys.
Don't Don't Arlene, don't look at them, okay? Look at me.
- - They're not going to help you, Arlene.
They're on our side.
We are just here to protect Wayward Pines to protect our future.
So, please, give me the keys.
- Come here.
- No! Come here! - Come here! - No! No.
You're making this harder than it has to be, Arlene.
Please! Don't you dare touch them! Or what? Your sheriff will throw us in a cell? Maybe give us a hug? I know what he won't do.
Reckon us.
You're Jason, right? Jason Higgins.
I know you.
I-I remember you.
You bought a toy soldier from us.
Harold, he-he carved that.
You must've been eight, 10 at the time.
But I remember it so well.
I remember because you were such a good kid.
I don't know what lies they've told you since then, but what I can tell you is what you're about to do you will never recover from.
You can stop this right now.
It's not too late.
She's right, Jason.
We've made our point.
This isn't about making a point, Sean.
This is survival.
Are you not paying attention in class? Are you deaf? Dumb? What? One crack in the ark and it all goes down.
It's our responsibility.
All right.
Out! Come on! Get down on your knees! All right, all right.
Don't look at me.
Come on.
Get out! Don't do this.
Oh, God.
Get up.
Okay, now, you come on out.
Don't even think about it.
- Oh! - What did I say? What did I say? On your knees.
On your knees.
All right, everybody after me.
Work hard.
Work hard! Work hard.
Be happy.
Be happy.
Be happy.
Say it! Be happy.
Be happy.
Enjoy your life in Wayward Pines.
Enjoy your life in Wayward Pines.
Drop 'em.
Down on the ground.
Down! Arlene? Arlene.
I need you to talk or more people are going to die.
Do you understand that? And not just your friends.
Innocent people, Kate.
- They don't think Amy's going to make it.
- Mmm.
But nobody else has to die.
Please tell me where these people are.
I'm not going to kill them.
You know that.
But I can't promise you that somebody else won't.
If I have them here in custody, then I can protect them.
Just like you protected Harold? If you really want to protect them you have to stop protecting me.
I can't do that.
You have to.
There's more Jasons out there.
They breed them in this town.
They're not going to just stop.
And I ca I can't have anybody else die because of me.
I'm done.
You have to put an end to this.
You have to do what Pilcher wants.
There's no other way.
If I did what Pilcher wants you'd be dead already.
Someone's going to kill me.
I'd rather it be you.
I heard something.
I think they're here again.
What are you doing here? There's something I have to show you.
I think Kate should see this too.
Where do these tunnels lead? I don't know.
What's this? You're not going to believe this.
It's Adam Hassler.
Adam? He was in on it.
This is Adam Hassler It's September 15, 4020.
I finally I finally reached the city.
Oh, my God.
Still no signs of any survivors.
It's just abbies.
They've been tracking us.
I think it's I think it's the same group from before.
Somehow they seem to be communicating with each other.
I'm going to try to try to make it to the other side and join up with the others.
Hey, Hassler! And Adam was just leading one group.
There are hundreds of these video journals from cities all over the country and And there's nothing left.
You believe me now? Why? Why wouldn't he tell us? Because Pilcher's a control freak.
We have to tell everybody the truth.
They have to see this.
How do you think we can do that without Pilcher finding out? Let me worry about Pilcher.
You just think about getting people down here to see this as many people as you can before midnight.
Midnight? Why? What What's happening at midnight? There's going to be a reckoning.
We did reduce the swelling.
That's about all we can do for now.
We just have to wait and see.
Yeah? Uh, sir, it's Ethan.
He'd like to see you.
Where? Here.
I want to reckon Kate.
Right decision.
It's the only decision.
When you kill a snake, you've got to cut off its head.
Kate's their leader.
She brought this on herself.
You know, this is your mess.
I'll take care of Kate.
But after tonight, no more.
That's all I want.
An end to the violence.
A new beginning.
Well, I'm going to need everybody there.
Yeah! Kill her! Is this what you want? Is this really what you want? Do it! - I'm not going to kill Kate.
- What? I'm not here to kill anyone.
I'm here to tell you the truth because we're running out of time.
You've been lied to.
About this place and about how you got here.
And there's one man behind it all.
You know him as Dr.
- That's right, Dr.
- No.
But his real name is David Pilcher.
And he hides behind all those cameras.
Sir, it's Ethan.
He'd like to see you.
I'm going to need everybody there.
He created this prison you live in.
He watches everything you do.
He tells you what job you can hold who you can marry and when someone has to die.
He uses fear and violence to control you because he's afraid that if you know the truth that you'll self-destruct.
You'll turn on each other.
But can't you see? That's what's already happening.
The world we knew is gone.
It no longer exists.
You don't have to like it, but you have to accept it.
This town is all that's left.
He's telling the truth.
The only reason I've been fighting is to find out what's out there.
And now I know.
I've seen it, and it's the last thing I wanted.
I wanted everything we left to still be there, but it's not.
He's not lying to you, and we can prove it.
You are lying! She's not.
He's telling the truth.
I saw it too.
So have I.
So have I.
So have I.
So have I! David Pilcher he doesn't believe we can handle this.
But we're stronger than he thinks.
Even with all these lies, with this violence we have made lives here.
How dare you say his name, Kate.
How dare you.
And this truth, it will only make us stronger.
We can build a future here because we have to.
Why are we listening to her? David Pilcher is a great man.
David Pilcher is the savior of all humankind.
He chose us, every one of us and that is a great honor.
We owe him our lives our trust and our devotion.
We're going to listen to her? - She tried to murder two innocent children! - That's not true.
She tried to destroy our fence, destroy our town.
She is a terrorist, and she has to be reckoned.
What's the matter with everyone? Why are you all just standing there? What happened to the power? Ripped By mstoll
