(film projector clicking)

Uh, it's not much, it's, uh,
it's a bit drippy sometimes,

- isn't it?
- (chuckles)

But we're happy.

Cube sweet cube.

We've been here
for about an hour.

No. What's the word?

Um... "soup"?

No, don't think it's soup.

We've been here
longer than that.


Oh. What happened. Uh, well...

the world ended.

(chuckles): Oh... sweetheart,
don't be so dramatic.

- It didn't end.
- It...

- It's still out there.
- I'm exaggerating.

- Sunrise, sunset.
- She had some...

- You know, everybody
toiling away.
- Toil, toil, toil.

- You know, good versus evil,
all that sort of thing.
- Mm-hmm.

We just...

well, we just don't...

- do that sort of thing anymore.
- No.

We were just
losing too much hair.

Time. Time.

It was time that we were losing,

uh, my beloved and I.


- Groom and bride.
- Hmm.

- Our bodies. What do we do with...
- Our bodies.

What do we do with our bodies?

They're... safe.

Um, somewhere.

They're hidden.

To tell you the location
would be un... genius.

I-It's actually
better without them.

- Mm.
- You know, all those
aches and pains and...

- aging.
- Mm-hmm.

Not to mention various gases.

(laughs): Oh! Stop.

Oh, but it's so much
more romantic now.

It's just...

well, every meal is a feast,

- every day a blessing.
- Hmm.

(upbeat, old-style jazz plays)

"O dandelion, rich and haughty,

"King of village flowers!

"Each day is coronation time,

"You have no humble hours.

"I like to see you bring a troop

"To beat the bluegrass spears,

"To scorn the lawnmower

"that would be like
fate's triumphant shears.

"Your yellow heads are cut away,

"It seems your reign is o'er.

"By noon you
raise a sea of stars

More golden than before."

(both laughing)

(Melanie squeals happily)

- We miss them, our friends.
- We miss people. Of course.

-You know, our
coworkers, -Mm-hmm.

Like, um...

of course, uh, Glasses McLabcoat

and, uh, the...

- the-the girl who
would kick, -Oh.

- Kick everyone, I miss her.
- Yeah.

Oh, and Sydney.
Don't forget Sydney.

- I had forgotten Sydney, yes.
- Oh, it...

oh, what happened
to her was so sad.

(sighs) Very sad. Uh...

(quietly): What was it that
happened to her again?

- The betrayal.
- She was betrayed.

-After the fight
with Farouk, -Mm.

When David...

- The Turn.
- Turned.

The Turn. Uh...

there was a great battle with...

what's his face.

- Fa... Farouk.
- Farouk. Farouk.

Uh, very soothing voice,
I found. Very hypnotic.


I remember helping him.

Yes, I... I do, too.


Why did he turn again,
this David person?

Because she
showed him his future.



(coughs, gags)

(Farouk mutters)


- (Farouk grunting weakly)
- No, no, no, no.



- (David panting)
- (Farouk groans weakly)


SYD: We need to talk.



Let me just finish
killing this asshole.

You haven't had a lot of
girlfriends, or you'd know...

When a woman
wants to talk, you talk.

Could you maybe not
point that thing at me?

You read the stories.

The women who marry
serial killers and have six kids...

Meanwhile, he's driving
around Portland every night

with a van full of duct tape.


They have to know.

Right? The wives, deep down.

At least a feeling,
something's wrong.

I know, with you. Now.

Syd, I'm the good guy.

He's the monster.


You're not that.

A good guy?

I thought so for a long time.

And then I saw
the things you hide.

And it hit me.

What if you're not the hero?

What if you're
just another villain?

The real villain.

Why? 'Cause...

because I didn't tell
you the whole truth?

Because I-I left?

- He kills people.
- You...

kill people.

Dozens at Division 3 last year.

No. That was him.

He had c-control.

The Son of Sam had a dog
who gave him commands,

but every time he pulled the
trigger, he pulled the trigger.

Seriously, why
are you doing this?

I... know.

That's the thing.

I've seen your true face.

You hid it so well.

I love you.


But here's what matters more.

You lie to me.

You leave me.

- You keep secrets.
- No.

You're doing it right now.

Unless maybe you don't
know the difference... truth, lie.


it's not even your fault.

He was in your head for so
long, poisoning every thought.

Are you okay? Y-Your
neck, that's a lot of blood.

It's not mine.

Listen to me, I
know it's been hard...

I saw what you did to Oliver.

To the soldiers at Division 3.

I saw the look on your face.

You liked it.

No, I did what I had to.

You tortured Oliver.

You were beating him to death.

That's not a love story.

♪ ♪

Wait, I...

I'm just, we're just, this is...

We're just doing
what you said. You.

This is war. We're in a war.

What am I willing to do?

How far am I willing to go?

- I know I said that, but...
- And that's all I'm doing.

That is all I am
doing... What you said.

No. No.

Baby, please.

What happened to "God
loves the sinners best"?

(softly): It won't work.

We're all powerless now.

Goddamn it, put the
gun down and talk to me.

He's gonna... it's gonna
wear off, and then he'll be...

You heard them... unstoppable.

And, look, I'm sorry if you
have abandonment issues.

And I was taken away
by you, if we're being...

If we're laying all our
cards out on the table,

so think about
that. I didn't leave.

You kidnapped
me from the future.

Did you ever ask why?
Why would I do that?

Reach out from the future?

Why ask you to help
Farouk find his body?

Because of the world...
The end of the world?

And who does that, end
the world? Not him, right?

Otherwise, why would
I ask you to save him?

I don't know. You
wouldn't, you didn't tell me.

- It's you.
- What's me?

You're the one who destroys
everything, who ends the world.



It never occurred to you

that you're the
problem, not the solution.

- H-How could you even...
- He showed me... Farouk.

He went to see her,
too... Me, in the future...

After you quit.

See, in her timeline,
you killed Farouk,

and then there was no one
powerful enough to stop you

- when you turned.
- When I...

So she tricked you into
helping him... your enemy...

So that he could stop you

when you showed
us who you really are.

I know.

It's cold to do that to
someone that you used to love.

Used to?

Baby, please, I'm right here.

Your man. Don't you trust me?

Maybe I just trust myself more.

No. He's...

You're being
tricked. Syd, please.

Syd, please.

You know me.

Yeah, I do.

And guess what?
You're not the hero.

Then who is?


delusion starts like any other idea,

as an egg.

Identical on the outside,

perfectly formed.

From the shell, you'd never
know anything was wrong.

A delusion starts

Identical on the

DIVAD: You see it now,

- don't you?
- Where...?

A delusion starts

Stop it. Stop it.

As an egg.

NARRATOR: A delusion
starts like any other idea,

as an egg.

(chuckles) You're
the chicken, man.

(imitates chicken)

She said I killed
all those people...

- in the future.
- You're delusional, baby.

No, I'm not. I'm
not crazy. I'm not.

All the voices,
the things I saw,

they said I was
schizophrenic, but that was a...

They didn't know the
truth, what I am, who I am.

I have powers, I'm powerful.

And then Syd came,
and now I know.

- I know that I'm...
- (scoffs) What?


No. Special.

A mutant. Omega.

- (scoffs)
- I'm the one who saves them.

- Who?
- Everybody. I-I-I'm the hero.

I save love. You get
it? Farouk, he's the devil.

What he did to me, what
he does to everybody...

Why can't she see that?

- Saint David.
- No, I'm not saying that.

I make mistakes, but...

I'm trying to help people.

A delusion starts

NARRATOR: starts

as an egg.

You stop saying that.

You know what your delusion is?

Hold the phone. Is
that...? Who's that?

Ooh, a dark horse candidate,

late entry to the race.

DIVAD: There. You see it?

The egg cracked just then,

and the delusion was born.

(indistinct voices whispering)

What are you talking about?

I'm a good person.

I deserve love.

I'm a good person.

I deserve love.

DIVAD: In order for
a delusion to thrive,

other, more rational
ideas must be destroyed.

I'm a good person.

So I deserve love.

No. That's not...

She saved me.

She showed me what I could be.

She made me good.

She made you good?

So, what, you
weren't good before?

David Haller, the
little piece of shit.

No, that's not...
That's just... words.

trying to confuse me.

She said, "Junkies and
masochists and hookers

"and those who have
squandered everything

are the ring of brightest
angels around heaven."

Oh, I remember.

God loves the sinners best.

TV): A delusion starts...

Do you really believe that?

Deep down? That God loves you?

DVD: Don't listen to him.

There is no God.

Except you.

So the question is,
do you love yourself?

No, that's not what I'm...

She said...

Stop doing that!

Making her right. All of them.

Caring about what they think.

They owe you everything.

This world.

A baby abandoned by his parents

with a demon stuck in his head.

Used, tricked, judged,

chucked in a Dumpster
like fat from a clinic.

And they tell you it's you.
That you're disgusting,

like somebody's used condom

that keeps getting
stuck to people's shoes.

You want to know the truth?

They're terrified you're
gonna wake up one day

and realize you're a god,

that you don't need any of them.

So they put you in
a mental hospital.

DIVAD: You are not helping.

He is sick. I'm trying to...

DVD: No, they're sick.

She's sick.

This blonde thing who
pretends to love us,

lowers our defenses,
crawls inside our head.

She's the delusion,
the parasite.

Stop it. That is not...

We are in love. That is real.

Our love is real.

Then why'd she just shoot you?

He's got a point.

(Lenny chuckles)


Syd, please. You know me.

Yeah, I do.


And guess what?
You're not the hero.

Take that...

- Then who is?
- Mother...

LENNY: Oops.

There will be a trial.
