Welcome to Eden (2022) s01e02 Episode Script


We need to turn around.
Two girls aren't here.
We can't go back.
- We have a set schedule.
- Look, we can't just leave them there.
Okay, don't worry.
We have a second trip planned to pick up the technical crew.
They'll be all right until we get back.
Hey! Check over there! Let's check up over there.
Straight ahead.
Fran? Eva.
Everything we eat, we grow right here on the island.
It's all sustainable, of course.
In Eden, we're self-sufficient.
One person's problems are everyone's problems.
If there's an issue, we solve it as a group.
Hmm? Like a beehive.
Busy little bees.
That's right.
How many people live here? - Fifty-three.
- But there will be more.
- Yeah.
- Bit by bit.
So, please, why don't you follow us? There.
Okay, guys.
Now we inhale.
As you can see, we work hard so they can live comfortably.
- Comfortably? - Mm-hmm.
In houses like this? These houses are modules, and we designed them to get the most out of the island's natural resources.
We? You deserve all the credit.
- He designed everything.
- What? No.
- Yes.
- Wow.
That's cool.
- Fucking epic, dude.
- We like to take care of our people.
Any of you could be a lifelong member of the foundation.
- Hmm? If you want.
- No, no thanks.
To be honest, I would stay a few days.
And what do you pay here? - Nothing.
- Nothing? Hmm.
Let's keep moving.
This way, please.
We're not a company.
The people who live here choose to do so.
- We don't force anybody.
- We all have to pitch in here.
That's the driving force behind our community.
Pure generosity.
Eva! Let's see if you can clarify something.
What's this have to do with the party last night? - We needed to devise a source for funding.
- The drink.
It's made of 100% natural ingredients, and we're launching it in a few more weeks.
And, well, you'll all be in the promo video.
- And does it show how incompetent you are? - Huh? You think it's normal to leave five people stranded here? Organizing a party in paradise isn't the easiest thing to do, you know.
Not my problem.
Holy shit.
Fuck yeah.
And this is our apartment.
Um, I'm sorry.
Were we the only ones left behind? - Why, exactly? - She's looking for this chick.
- Mm-hmm.
- Well, yes.
It looks like you're the only ones.
- But tomorrow, it'll all be behind you.
- Tomorrow? - Are you guys fucking kidding? - Don't worry.
We have plenty of space.
Enjoy it.
Stay, just relax and hang out.
We'll let you know as soon as the boat has arrived.
Do we still need to wear these wristbands? Hmm.
Leave 'em on for now so everyone will know you're our guests of honor.
Ulises, take them to their modules, please.
Follow me, everyone.
- You could be reported for this.
- Let it go.
Such a pain, dude.
Come on.
Chill out, all right? - I'm sorry.
- Don't be upset.
Just look around.
It's taken care of.
I'm locked ♪ Locked in a perfect cage ♪ Askin' myself again ♪ Is this how it's gonna end? ♪ This fuckin' game ♪ Oh, hi.
Good morning.
What are you reading? Can I see? No.
Nice to meet you.
God, what time is it? Hi, honey.
Mm, and good morning to you.
Awful jet lag.
- I'm starving.
- Zoa's not here.
- I see that.
- She's been gone since Friday.
She's probably at Judith's or something.
Are there any eggs? And you? Did you talk to Mom? - No, why? - Because she's out of the clinic.
- She wanted to stop by and see us.
- Mm, no.
No, Gabi.
I'm sorry.
You know the rules.
But why not? She's totally clean.
Right, like every other time.
I'm the one in charge of taking care of you girls, not her.
Now, knock it off.
I have company.
What's going on? He doesn't want me to talk about his wife in front of you.
I thought you said your "ex-wife.
" Soon-to-be ex-wife! It's complicated, all right? Thanks a lot.
What time is it? I fly out tonight.
You all right on your own? Like always, yeah.
That's my girl.
Honey! - So, you won't be here tomorrow? - Uh-uh.
Babe! Babe, let's go out.
Come on.
How about some Spanish paella? My treat.
ARE YOU COMING BACK OR WHAT? ZOA, WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU? - Um, are we sleeping here? - I don't know.
- But I'm so over these boots.
- I bet.
Hell, I'd even sleep on the floor.
I really hope they have a nice bed.
Aldo, module 11.
Ibón, in 12.
Come on, guys.
Wait a minute.
We're not sleeping together? No.
You were assigned to beds that were free.
África in module six.
Zoa, module eight.
Charly, in module seven.
- Rest well.
- Thank you.
We're close, huh? Hello.
How cool.
Is it all for me? "Eden.
" "Courtesy of our foundation.
" - Want some? - No, it's all yours.
Hey, you're that crazy girl.
You were gonna jump off the cliff.
- How you doin'? - Mm, fine.
Yeah? You do that often, or you had a bad trip? No.
No, no.
Thanks a lot.
No worries.
You never told me your name.
- Zoa.
- Zoa.
- Mm.
- Oh.
There's not much privacy, but, hey, you end up getting used to it.
- That's your bed.
- Oh, I thought that one was hers.
Oh, no, no.
Claudia has her own.
By the way, aren't you gonna greet our new roommate? Hi there.
She's not big on making friends, but she'll grow on you.
I can't believe they took off without us.
Yeah, that sucks.
But, hey, at least you're safe with us.
Give me a bottle.
Hey, can't you see my wristband? - Give me a fucking bottle! - What's going on? Your buddy didn't get the memo.
He won't give me my bottle.
Let's go.
"Courtesy of our foundation.
" Holy shit, dude.
Mm, mm, mm! Mm, mm.
Sleep would do you good.
You'll see things more clearly in the morning.
Who's in charge here? Is there a manager or something in this place? - What do you mean? - Who deals with complaints here? - Your bosses are ignoring me.
- Astrid and Erick aren't my bosses.
Yeah, whatever.
The queen bees of the hive.
In that case, you can talk to Ulises.
But it's late.
You should wait until morning.
I would swim away now if I could.
There aren't any more boats on this island? People here don't like questions, so just stop asking them.
I'll ask all the fucking questions I want, all right? Okay, then.
Your call.
Ah, son of a bitch! - What did you do to my arm, dude? - Sorry.
- It's the quickest way.
- It doesn't hurt.
- It just caught me off guard.
- Yeah, right.
We believe you.
- Fucker.
- Your turn.
- You guys aren't touching me.
- Even the smallest cold can affect us.
It's mandatory.
I don't care.
- Saúl, it's fine.
- You look so funny.
- I know, right? What do we look like? - Damn! - I'm still detecting alcohol in you.
- I'm not surprised, man.
Put this on.
Hmm, okay.
Very nice.
All good.
So, we passed? - Congratulations.
- No, thanks.
I'm comfortable with this.
If you want to walk around freely, you have to wear it.
- But we already have the wristbands.
- And the boat, any news? - It's at the port.
- And? It can't come back yet.
Apparently, the sea is too rough.
- When, then? - No.
As soon as we know more, we'll let you know.
- Man.
- All right, let's go.
Now we look like we're part of the family.
Try it on.
Come on, Aldo.
It goes with your beautiful eyes.
Come on, dumbass.
Let's go.
Thank you, Saúl.
You got it.
Fuck this, man.
It's useless.
It won't work.
Who are you calling? No one.
Trying to check social media.
They took your phone away before you got on the boat.
How'd you sneak this one in? It was in my pocket.
In your boots.
Ugh, I can't believe we can't use our phones here.
Well, you've already seen there's no service.
Don't worry, África.
I promise you can survive without it.
No, I can't.
I'm having some brutal withdrawals.
Do you have a cigarette? No, you can't smoke in Eden.
- Why not? - You especially.
Your lungs aren't really lookin' very healthy, África.
You think I'm stupid, right? No, but I think we need to take care of our bodies.
They're our homes.
We should try to feel less anxious and take pleasure in where we are.
That's what we do in Eden.
We live in the present.
Well, thanks for the sermon, Father.
But I already went to a school full of nuns.
Look at this.
"Together in paradise.
" Mm-hmm.
It was the first thing Astrid said when we got here.
And this? Ah.
I got these much later.
Well, I have a tattoo of a dollar and I'm not telling you where it is.
All right.
This foundation's fashion sense is rad, right? It's not a goddamn foundation.
It's a fucking cult.
They take your phone, lock you in a cage, and if you step out for air, a drone chases you.
What are those people doing? Oof.
Look, dude.
I'm in no hurry to leave this place.
For real.
Catch you later.
This guy is too much, huh? I don't know about you, but if I don't get to my client on time, I swear, Zoa, I'll fuck these guys up.
But what do they gain by holding us here? You can bring the samples to Saúl's lab.
Just a minute.
Uh, hi.
How's it goin'? This is nice, huh? You want company? All right.
And your name is? Hey, are you okay? Are you crying? What? - You wanna watch? - I wanted to talk to you.
At the party, you were with a girl, Judith.
I think it's weird she went back without telling me.
- Did you see her get on the boat? - I don't know any Judith.
You hooked up with her that night.
It was someone else.
I'm positive it was you.
I said it was someone else.
All right? What? Erik Satie.
Some people say it's a sad song.
But to me, it's more melancholic.
Sadness is negative.
Melancholy connects you to something you lost, but when you recall it, it brings you joy.
In Portugal, they call that "saudade.
" You play really well.
Not as well as you.
Wait, how do you know I play too? It's your turn.
The last time I played, I got beat up.
No one will do that to you here.
No, I can't do it.
What happened? My father.
Ibón, let us help you.
Let me help you.
What's your name? Alma.
Breached perimeter.
Northwest zone in sector four.
Whoo! Where were you going? Don't know.
Just out to explore a little.
It's dangerous to drive if you don't know where you're going.
You could get stuck in the sand, and no one would know.
You could even get killed out there.
You could have asked me to show you the island instead of taking what's not yours.
How did you find me? Hey.
- I finally found you.
- Hi.
- Ah.
- Hey, listen.
What's the name of that tall, like, kind of Nordic guy? Orson? I tried to talk to him, but he went all weird with me.
- Yeah? What'd you ask him? - Nothing.
I wanna go back now.
Your boyfriend waitin' for you? Girlfriend? - Wrong for both.
- Sorry, it's not my day.
Not mine either.
Gabi, my younger sister.
I'm an only child.
I don't know why, but they say we turn out to be weirdos.
- You don't seem like a weirdo.
- What do I seem like? Like a smart-ass.
Little Squirrel? - Yeah? - From Zoa.
It's already paid for.
- Later.
- Bye.
Eva, thank you for your loyalty and for always being vigilant.
- Thank you, Astrid.
- Mm-hmm.
You have the privilege of deciding who will do today's evaluation.
I don't But I'm just, like, passing through.
It doesn't matter, Zoa.
It's a unique experience.
You'll see.
- Really? - Yes.
Hello, Zoa.
- Hello.
- Let's learn more about you, all right? I'm not that interesting.
Really, I'm not.
I feel like you're someone special.
And my intuition is never wrong.
Don't believe me? Did you know that the atoms surrounding us know the truth about us, even before we know it ourselves? What's on your mind? Look at Zoa.
- Yeah, I've seen her.
- I'm kind of blank.
What do you think? You can share anything worrying you.
- I wanna keep on observing her.
- I need to get back home.
But I know there's a storm and we'll have to wait for the boat.
- Are you uncomfortable with us? - No.
- Then? - It's my friend Judith.
You're worried about your friend.
- Did you know her before coming to Eden? - Since we were little.
Eden invited you, but you chose to invite her too.
- Uh, I know it was wrong.
- No, it's fine.
Don't worry.
- You had the best intentions, right? - Mm-hmm.
We all make mistakes.
Hmm? No matter what, we forgive you.
Tell us a bit.
Who are you? I'm 19 years old, in my second year of biology.
I live with Gabi, my little sister, who's 16 today.
And my dad travels a lot, and we take care of ourselves.
And your mother? She's not around.
My parents separated when I was 12 and Gabi was 9.
Mothers don't normally leave their daughters like that.
As mothers, we're there for our children.
You have children? What happened to your mother? My mother was Well, she is a heroin addict.
How does that make you feel? I feel bad, but mostly for my sister.
Every time they let my mother out of the clinic, Gabi gets happy, and I say to her, "Little Squirrel don't get too excited because she's gonna relapse again.
" - Little Squirrel? - Mm-hmm.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY FAVORITE SISTER, LITTLE SQUIRREL "Little Squirrel, I need some time for myself.
" "Respect my decision, and don't look for me 'cause I'm fine.
" "I love you and happy birthday.
" CALLING The number you have dialed is not available at the moment.
Please check the number or try again later.
The number you have dialed is not Have you thought that maybe your parents don't deserve their daughters? I don't know.
My mom isn't well.
If she makes you suffer like this she doesn't love you.
Well, based on what I'm hearing right now, Zoa, I think your mother doesn't really love you.
I'm sorry to tell you this, but don't fool yourself.
Repeat this.
"My mother doesn't love me.
" Say it.
My mother doesn't love me.
"My mother doesn't love me.
My mother hates me.
" Say it.
My mother doesn't love me.
- My mother hates me.
- Much louder.
My mother doesn't love me.
My mother hates me.
We can barely hear you, Zoa.
My mother doesn't love me.
My mother hates me.
- Once again.
- My mother doesn't love me.
My mother hates me! When you leave this island, remember you met people who were willing to love you completely because they know how special you are.
