[indistinct chatter]

Excuse me. Any chance
you're interested to tour?

We're offering special on.

New England architectural
elements featuring..


No, thanks. Cornices
aren't my thing.

Yeah, me neither.


Your first time on the island?



- I was actually born here.
- That's impossible!

Been in summering in Selkie my whole life.
I'd remember you.

Did you just turn
summer into a verb?

I did.

- I'm TJ.
- Miranda.

You're Amelia's daughter.

- You know Amelia?
- Well, yeah.

I mean, it's a
pretty small island.

'Everyone knows everyone.'

I suppose you do
sorta look alike.

I wouldn't know.

I haven't seen her
since I was preverbal.

My dad kind of died and
Amelia's my next of kin.

- I'm sorry to hear that.
- Yeah, thanks.

Well, brace yourself.

The return of Amelia's
long lost daughter

is gonna be the biggest
news around here since..

General store was robbed
like ten years ago.

Any chance I'll be no news?

- Probably not.
- Okay.

[TJ] 'So how long
are you in town?'

I don't know.

I don't even know where
I'm going to live.

The address my social
worker gave me

just said, "The Mariner."

New Englanders still practice
the fine old tradition

of naming our homes.

I live in Beauport.

You can tell it's fancy
'cause it's French.

Wanna see your new pad?

Wait, like right now?


Come on.

[instrumental music]

♪ I never loved
anyone like this ♪

♪ It's so hard

♪ To be still

♪ Come around again

♪ Lead me on your way

♪ Back home

Straight ahead.

'The big green one's
The Mariner.'

Home sweet home.

[TJ] 'See that
house down there?'

'That's Beauport.
Door's always open.'

I know the island looks raw,
but it's actually pretty sweet

once you get used to living
in a digital desert.

Please tell me that doesn't
mean what I think it means.

No cell tower on the island.
Or internet.

Except for the
coffee shop in town.

Worried about that boyfriend
of yours back in..

Portland. Nice try.

[music continues]

[Miranda] For some reason I thought
Maine would be a little more rustic.

Oh, this is nothin'.

Wait till you see some of
the yachts at the club.

Including yours?

[Ginny] 'Hey, TJ!'

- Friend?
- Girlfriend, actually. Kind of.

- Right.
- Hey, hottie with a body.

[chuckles] Hi!

God, I missed you!

Oh, is this the
Miller's new au pair.

Do you speak English?

Uh, Ginny, this is
Amelia's daughter.


Oh, my God! I am so embarrassed.

I, I saw those cut-offs
and I just assumed..

- Sorry.
- I'm Miranda.

Ginny Cunningham.

I would invite you to
come to the club with us

but I'm sure you and Amelia have
a ton of catching up to do.

- Yeah.
- Oh, there's Quire.

- She has the party favors.
- 'Oh!'

Bobby's already waiting for us.

Yeah, well, uh, I'll
catch up with ya.

Okay, well, hurry up.

Well, guess I better
get this over with.

[Amelia] 'Miranda!'

Sure you don't want back-up?

I don't mean to brag
but moms love me.

Wish I could say the same.

[instrumental music]



How was the ride over?



Oh, you-you must be starving.

Let's get you home.

[instrumental music]

This place is huge.

What do you do? I..

I tried Googling you but
I didn't find much.

Greg never told you
anything about me?

Didn't ask.

Well, um, I got my
degree in art history.

But, right now, I mostly write.

Exhibition announcements,
art reviews..

That kinda thing.


What about you? Any hobbies?

- 'Or do you play sports?'
- Uh, no.

Hand-eye coordination isn't
really one of my skills.

You get that from me. I can't
throw a ball five feet.

My bag is kind of heavy.

Can you show me
where I'm sleeping?


'This way.'

[indistinct music]

Hey. Is your vision
getting worse?

'Cause your crazy hot
girlfriend is over there

'getting easier by the second.'

Not sure want to be
tied down this summer.

Okay. Just let me know
when you're done with her.

'Cause I'm totally down
for sloppy seconds.


Alright! All aboard! Oh.

'Oh, cheers.'


God, I love summer.

Hey, I heard you met Amelia's
daughter on the ferry.

- I did.
- 'Okay.'

So tell me everything.

I don't know. She seemed
pretty cool, I guess.

What's her deal? Why has she
never been here before?

Okay, her mom and my mom
are like best friends.

And she said the divorce
was like, super-messy.

Apparently, she grew up
in Portland with her dad.

- Guess he died pretty suddenly.
- 'Tragic!'

Let's invite her to the club
tomorrow and get the story.

Why? So she can offend us
all with that flannel?

Shit! Hey, dad.

This your idea of discussion?

Hey! Whatever, we're
all friends here.

Don't look at me. I
didn't touch it.

Ginny, have you heard
from your parents today?

Uh, yeah, right. They're in Paris.

I got a call from
the dock master.

Your cousin went for a
dive and didn't come back.

Now did she tell you she was
prepping for an overnight?

Kit is fine, she will
show up tomorrow

with some fish skeleton and
like a three-hour explanation

on why it's a prehistoric
fossil or something.

Okay. Just uh, uh,
do me a favor.

Gimme a call when she turns up.

Okay. Sure.


Surin Beach?

Let me know if you
hear anything.

You hate it.

No. I-it's good.

You know..

We should talk about where
you'll go for senior year.

- Do I get a say in that?
- Of course, you do.

It's your future.

Didn't get a choice
about coming here.


I know how close
you and dad were.

And what a nightmare this
has got to be. But..

It's gonna be a
really long summer

if you're not willing
to give this a chance.


So, what is there
to do around here?

Well, have you
ever been sailing?

We could take the
boat out tomorrow.

Or there's a pool at the club.

We could order lunch
and go for a swim.

I don't know how.

Greg never taught you?

- Dad couldn't swim, either.
- Oh, of course, he could.

He was a life guard
all through college.

I didn't know that.

[spoon clanks]

[instrumental music]

Is it okay if I go for a run?

Sure. There's a
path to the dunes.

Uh, make sure you turn around
when you reach the bluffs.

Hey, do you want me
to come with you?

I'm trying too hard.

Aren't I?

A little, yeah.

Just be careful. Okay?

[indistinct singing]

[waves crashing]

[eerie whispering]

[instrumental music]

[whispering continues]

[Leo] 'Hey! Hey.'

What are you doing?

I don't know.

You can't swim here.

But surfing is totally fine?

Right. Well, we're good.
I'm not going back in.

I can't actually swim.

[whispering continues]

That sound.

I've never heard anything
like that before.

You heard that?

Uh, yeah.

I don't know.

Must've come from
one of the boats.


I'm Miranda.


Whoa. What happened there?

Boating accident.

[eerie music]

You should get going.
Water's coming in.

Yeah. Whoa.

[water gurgling]

It was nice to..

[eerie whispering]


[whispering continues]

- Miranda.
- Ha!

- Are you okay?
- What are you doing?

- Were you following me?
- You were gone a long time.

I was worried.

Sorry. I..

I just got spooked.

Are you sure you're okay?

Yeah. I'm fine.

[intense music]

[birds chirping]

[instrumental music]

[music continues]

[engine revving]

You're right. The
new girl's hot.

- Her name is Miranda.
- Miranda?

Well, did you hand Miranda
your balls outright

or did you just put a
sold sign on your junk?

- Shut up.
- Ha-ha.

You know, it just seems
like a lot of work

when Ginny's still dyin'
to climb that that

teach strip pole, if you
know what I'm saying.

Believe it or not, I can decode

that sort of metaphor.

- Want that?
- Mm.

- Be right back.
- Alright.

[instrumental music]

[indistinct chatter]

Couldn't manage one day
with outside contact?

Yeah. Something like that.

I get it. Your boyfriend
probably misses you.

Yeah. Javier gets really
upset when I don't check in.

He's a bodybuilder. So I
don't like to make him mad.

Plus, I also have to
email social services

to let them know Amelia hasn't
locked me in the basement.

'Cause that's something
we're worried about.

Probably not.

One second.

Nelson here was actually
just wrapping things up.

Thanks, Nelson.

So, what do you have
to do tomorrow night?

I was thinking a little brooding

maybe penning some
angsty poetry, for sure

avoiding awkward conversation
with my only living relative.

You know, the usual.

Tried out the whole
poetry thing for a while

after my mom passed away.

My eye in [indistinct]
definitely needs work.

- I'm so sorry.
- Thanks.

Anyway, if you get bored of
poetry, there's this thing

happening down at the yacht
club tomorrow night.

'Sort of an island tradition to
kick off the start of summer.'

You should come.

Good for angst-drowning.

- Yeah. Maybe.
- Alright.

I'll see you there.

[computer beeps]

[indistinct chatter]

[keys clacking]

[instrumental music]

- Oh, my gosh. You're Miranda.
- I'm Cece N. Cooper.

My mom told me not to
bother you this week

because you and your mom
have like tons of bonding

and whatever to make up for, but

I'm pretty sure she
just said that

'cause her Botox
went a little wanky

and she's desperate for company.

Anyways, I couldn't
wait to meet you.

Plus Ginny says
you're a total freak.

Which means, we're
gonna be BFFs.

- It's nice to meet you.
- What are you doing right now?

Do you want to grab
ice-cream with me?

My treat, I mean not
that I don't think

you can afford ice cream.

You don't seem poor or anything.

I just... wanna be nice.

- I have to be somewhere.
- Okay.

Sorry, uh, you caught
me in weird moment.

- Cece, right?
- Right.

I guess I'm having a hard time

coping with moving
to a small town

where everyone knows my
height, weight and shoe size.

Oh, no one can get
your shoe size.

I've been trying all day.


Ginny goes to Deerfield,
but, you know

my parents aren't into the
whole catholic-school thing.

Bobby and TJ go to Exeter.

Bobby's dad, he used
to play football.

But you know, he owns like seven
restaurants. He's a creeper.

And Kate's totally bulimic but
we all pretend not to notice.

And that sends her
toward the cove.

Everything else
is tiny territory

which is better
left than explored.

[instrumental music]

[Miranda] Hey, what do
you know about Leo?

Not much.

Townies usually avoid the heirs.


- Heirs with an 'H?'
- Ah.

'It's what the townies
call the summer people'

"cause we all inherited land.'"

Come on. Let's go say hi.

- N-no way. He's hot, but he's...
- What? Four?

Disturbed. There's a ton
of stories about that guy.

Leo. Hey.

What happened to your scars?

You seem very
interested in my body.

I'm not. I just
wanted to say hey.


[TJ] Miranda.

- You okay?
- I'm fine.

We were just leaving.

TJ, you didn't tell
new girl the rules.

It's not really a good
idea to friend the help.

You're right, you never
know when we might

uh, piss in your champagne.

- Bobby!
- Oops.


I doubt they teach you to throw
a decent punch at Exeter.

Oh, fish stick wants a fight.

[Miranda] Stop it.
Nobody wants a fight.

Do they?

- Come on, Bobby.
- Yeah, it's no problem.

I got to get back to the
restaurant, anyway.

My dad is having an issue
with one of the waitresses.

She keeps propositioning
to customers.

Oh, wait a sec. Her
name is Naomi.

Isn't that your sister?

Oh. This is a small world.

- What are you doing with him?
- Me?

What are you doing
with that guy?

Bobby, he's a dick
but he is harmless.

And Leo's not?

[male #1] 'Can I get
some help here?'

'Is she alright?'


[indistinct gasping]

- Oh, my God.
- Is that..

- Kit.
- Oh, God. Oh, God. Oh, God.

[instrumental music]

Fishing crew found her
body tangled in the lines.

I guess she wasn't a
very strong swimmer.

Kit was an experienced diver.

She drowned.

She could've misjudged how
much gas was in her tanks

or hit her head or lost
consciousness underwater.

There were, um..
Thought she had like..

Something got to the
body after the fact.

Could've been a seal or a shark.

I've called the mainland police.
They're sending an ME.

Look, I don't need a
corner to tell me

the cause of death was drowning.

Her lungs were full of water.

Well, if there was
something in that water..

I think we need to know.

What's your relationship to
Kit Morgan, Mr. Elinsworth?

I'm the Cunningham's
legal counsel.

And until they're
back from Europe

I'm also Ginny's guardian.

What about the victim's parents?

You need family to
identify the body.

Uncle Lou is like 80.
He has Alzheimer's.

That's why Kit was
staying with us.

Dan'll be back by the weekend.
Now, if you'll excuse us..

The family could
use some privacy.

I've to pick up my dress
from the tailor's

and get my nails
done before tonight.

Look, Ginny. No one expects you
to go tonight. You know that.

I'm fine. I'm not gonna
miss the heirs party.

- You sure?
- Yeah.

- I'll see you later, okay?
- Yeah.

[sighs] It's happening again.

I saw Kit's body. That
wasn't a seal or a shark.

No point in jumping
to conclusions.

Alright? Let the
ME do his thing.

- But, dad...
- Look, TJ.


You'll make it harder on the
family than it already is.


[birds chirping]

[instrumental music]

[music continues]

[music continues]

[Miranda] 'Amelia.'

[knock on door]

Come in.

Omg. Did you even bathe today?

No, actually.

Right, okay, go
sanitize while I find

something acceptable in here.

- For what?
- Um, the heirs party.

It's not cancelled?

They found a dead
body yesterday.

Well, it's not like
she was an heir.

A human died.

Doesn't that mean
anything to you?

Sorry, I didn't mean to be an...

I guess I just meant that
it's your first day here

it's not like any
of us even met her.

Still seems wrong
to have a party.

Well, if it makes
you feel any better

there will be a
moment of silence

and a very tasteful slideshow.

[Cece] Hmm. Ooh.

This blue dress doesn't suck.

Come on, stand up.

Will the townies be there?

No. No, no, no. No, no.

Leo was hot, but
he's unbalanced.

Do everyone a favor and help
TJ cheat on Ginny instead.

What's the deal
with them, anyway?

TJ and Leo, not TJ and Ginny.

Unsolved mystery.

Leo's mom used to
clean TJ's house.

And they were like best friends.
And when Mrs. E died

Leo just dropped TJ.

TJ was totally destroyed.

Leo didn't even show
up for the funeral.

Now, go bathe before
I call Hazmat?

Thank you.

[electronic music]

Why is everyone looking at me?

The same families have been
coming here for a hundred years.

People are curious about you.

That's all.

Unless Ginny told
everyone you got herpes.

This must be Miranda.
Look at you two.

Getting on like gangbusters.

Leanne Twinies Cooper.
Cece's mom.

And a good friend.

What a blessing for you
to be back with your mom.

You must've missed her so
much out there in Portland.

It's so sad about Kit.

I don't know why
they didn't close.

Siren Beach after Molly died.

[Leanne] That place
is a death trap.

And that poor girl's body
was covered in bite marks.

It looked more like scratches.

We went for a walk yesterday.

'Sort of near the docks.
Barely saw anything.'

I'm really thirsty.
Uh, Miranda, come.

- Bye, moms.
- What's Siren Beach?

It's where the locals like
to surf, but it's dangerous.

Every year, someone dies on
the rocks or in a rip tide.

Is that the beach at the
end of the footpath?

Yes, and I never want
you going there again.

I'm gonna go find Cece.

The teenagers usually hang
out in the pier, so..

Us old folks can pretend we
don't see them drinking.

[electronic music]

Something to drink, miss.


[Leo] 'Careful down there.'

I'm fine.

[Cece] Miranda.

Did you get stuck talking
to some old people?

[Miranda] Something like that.

Oh, well, then you
definitely need a drink.

Guys, this is Miranda.
Miranda, this is everyone.

'You know Bobby and
that's Jake and... '

- Hi.
- Hey.

- Hey, you made it.
- Yeah.

Javier missed his flight,
modeling emergency.


[Ginny] 'TJ?'

Hold on one second.

- New girl, you down?
- I'm in.


Took this from my son earlier.

I'm good.

Wouldn't have throw your
brother the work tonight

if I had have known you would
turn into a damn prude.

I'm not.

I'm just sober now.

[instrumental music]

You've been up to an awful
lot of things lately.

You're a kid, you
should be having fun.

You are married.

Sir, they're ready to
start the speeches.

- Did he hurt you?
- No.

You don't have to keep
working for that dickhead.

There are other
jobs on the island.

And they pay as well though.

[Finley] 'Hey, Naomi.'

Chicken's lookin' for ya.

You want me to jack off
in his drink real quick?

Yeah, tempting, but, uh, no.

I'll take this one.

Of course, you will.

What is that supposed to mean?

Have the heirs accepted
your application yet

or is it still on the wait list?

Just because I don't
think they're disposable

doesn't make me one of them.

I'll get it. It's fine.

I'll go see what Bobby wants.

I got it.

[music continues]

Okay, never have I
ever given head.

No-no that's so not fair.

Drink up, bitches.


Oh, no, no. No, no, no.

I ordered the hot
slutty Macleod.

Well, ask and you shall receive.

Someone smell that?

Oh yeah, that right.
You're a fisherman.

You know I really
need to discuss

'hiring policies
with my father.'

Chum Bucket isn't the atmosphere

we're going for
here at the club.

Weird, the only thing I smell
is privilege and date rape.


Another bottle of tequila.

[Ginny] It's your turn Miranda.
And don't worry..

No one's used, "Never
have I ever had sex yet."

Never have I ever gone swimming.

[Cece] What, you mean today?

I mean like ever.

Well, you'll never survive
a summer on the island

a swim virgin.

Never have I ever
gone skinny-dipping.

Let's go, right now.

What do say, new girl?

I'm in.

We're not like seriously going
skinny-dipping, are we?

Our parents are right there.

Fine, let's go to Surin Beach.


Mother? You're supposed
to be in Europe.

You locked me out of the house.

'We're leaving.'

- 'Now.'
- Come with me.

Uh, I don't wanna
intrude on family time.


[music continues]

- Who's coming?
- Surin Beach?

Come on! It'll be fun.

No way. That's where Kit died.

Jake, my friend, if
you ruin my chance

of seeing many many boobs
tonight, you'll die too. Okay?

- Jake and I are in.
- Wanna come?

- No, no. He's not invited.
- I just invited him.

No, thanks.

I've seen enough dead
bodies this week.

Come on! Let's go.

[electronic music]

Hey, counselor.

You look grand.

Motherhood hasn't aged me?

You know it hasn't.

So how's it going with Miranda?

She fluctuates hourly

between active loathing
and icy indifference.

Well, she's a teenager.
That's normal.

Any update?

I haven't found a police report.

Sheriff Wood's been
dead for years.

I mean, if there's one at
the station, it is buried.

That isn't good enough.
Miranda is here now.

Just tell her the truth.

- Just get out in front of it.
- Not an option.

Teddy, please, I finally
have my daughter back.

I can't lose her again.

You know I could be disbarred.

I thought, of all people, you'd
understand the importance

of protecting family secrets.

[instrumental music]

[indistinct chatter]

Right! It's boobs o' clock.

Wow! I'm surprised you have your
clothes on this long, slut.

What? Jealous Bobby only
wants to see me naked?

♪ Dream the moon in your
eyes up in the cloud ♪

♪ All the nights
we'd sit outside ♪

♪ And wonder all the
magic in your eyes ♪♪

You can't back out now.

- This was your idea.
- Right.

You know if you want, you can
cling to my manly biceps.

And risk the wrath of Ginny?

No, thanks, I'd rather drown.

On the ferry, I.. I wasn't
trying to play you.

Ginny and I go to different
boarding schools.

I didn't want to break up
with her over the phone.

I was gonna do it when
we got here, but, uh..

But then her cousin died?

[instrumental music]

Come on.

Guys, this is a really, really bad idea.
Like, really bad.

[Bobby] Think we'll
find a leg out here?

Heard a kid only came
back with three limbs.

Gross and untrue.

My dad says this
beach is haunted

by all the people the
seawalkers killed.

The what?

New girl doesn't know
about seawalkers.

Well, seawalkers are this

'ancient race that
run the seven seas.'

And now they got claws
out to till here

and big long ass pointy teeth.

Look, people are kind of
obsessed with them here.

Seawalkers are an urban
legend parents used to use

to keep the kids off this shore.

Let's just go.

Last one to get wet is
the wet frigid prune.


- Whoo!
- 'Whoo!'

- 'Faster!'
- Whoo!



What's the matter? Scared?

I don't feel anything anymore.

[music continues]

[Cece] 'Hey!'

Be that as it may

as a life guard, it's
my moral obligation

to provide you with a
floatation device.

- Thanks!
- 'Guys, hurry up!'

♪ Oh-oh oh-oh


[indistinct chattering]

♪ Oh-oh oh-oh

♪ Oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh ♪

[indistinct chatter]


Keep laughing, but everyone
is afraid of something.

Not me.

Lemme guess. Spiders?


- Heights?
- Nope.

Mm, I know. Hounds.



- Not funny!
- That wasn't me.

Let's go back in.

[Miranda screams]




[intense music]

[music continues]



[TJ] 'Miranda!'

Miranda! What happened?

Leo. He saved me.

He was, he was just here.

[instrumental music]

Keep it. You're still shivering.

Sure you're okay?

Aside from my damaged
pride, all good.

I'm so sorry, Miranda.

Should've never let
you go in the water.

Let me? TJ, I'm a big girl.

I make my own bad decisions.

You're sure Leo was there?

I mean, no one else saw him.

- Positive.
- I mean, that's weird, right?

The waves and the fogs
just came out of nowhere.

And Leo saves you and
just disappears?


Ah, it's nothing.

Just drunk... and stupid.

That make two of us.

[music continues]

Thanks for walking me home.

[exhales sharply]

[water gurgling]

[eerie music]


[instrumental music]

The call's getting stronger.


We need to go to
the caves tonight.

We're almost out of
time to be on land.

You ever hear about
one of the heirs..

Hearin' it?

The call? What kinda
question is that?

[Finley] 'You heard
anything interesting?'


I feel a lecture comin'.

They're doin' an
autopsy on Kit Morgan.

They're gonna know
it wasn't a shark.

Who cares? Let 'em
try to figure out

what kind of an animal
does that to a body.

[Leo] There wasn't
supposed to be a body.

Don't you get it?

They're gonna comb Surin Beach.

And they won't stop until
they find somethin' to blame.

She had a knife. It's
harder than we thought.

You dragged my sister into this?

I wanted to help.

I needed someone with balls

to back me up.

Leo, you know exactly why
that girl had to go.

You just didn't wanna have
to be the one to do it.

So come on, brother, cheer up.

She's dead. We should
be celebrating.


[instrumental music]


- Leo..
- Just deal with the body.


[intense music]

[knock on door]

I'm here to I.D.
my cousin's body.

Sheriff Colley said your
mom would be coming.

Yeah, well, this isn't the
kinda thing she does.

This is the kinda thing
she makes me do.

So can we get it
over with, please?

[intense music]

It's this way.

[Dave] Are you sure you don't
wanna wait for you mom or dad?

It's pretty bad.

[music continues]

[inhales deeply]

That's Kit.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

I just wanted to make
sure she was really dead.

She's entitled to half
of Nana Morgan's estate.

Should I g-get you something?
Water, somethin'?

No. I'm fine. Do you
need anything else?

[music continues]



[indistinct chatter]

[music continues]

[music continues]

"Seawalker's kiss?"

[door creaks]

[door opens]

[instrumental music]

Deputy Dave?

Oh, my god!


[smoke alarm blaring]


Somebody help me!

Help me!



[instrumental music]

[Ginny] 'Fire! There's a fire!

'Somebody help me!'

'Let me out!'


[Ginny] 'Help me!'

[fire alarm blaring]




Ginny, are you okay?

Okay, we have to go this way.




Come on. Go, go, go.

[Ginny] I'm telling you,
someone was in there.

[female #1] You're
still in shock.

It's been a long week for
you and your family.

I heard something and then
there was smoke and fire

'and all the doors were locked.'

Nothing on this
island is up to code.

And that building
is a 100 years old.

I'd be surprised if there
wasn't a wiring issue.

[Amelia] 'Miranda!'

- Are you alright?
- I'm fine.

- Are you hurt?
- Amelia, I'm fine.


[instrumental music]


[music continues]

[eerie whispers]

[instrumental music]

[Amelia] 'Miranda?'

How are you feeling?

The EMT said you might wake
up feeling a little wheezy.

- From the smoke.
- I'm okay.

You know, maybe we should
visit the mainland ER.

We-we could still take
the afternoon ferry...

Seriously, I'm good.


I don't know if I can
ever forgive you

for abandoning me.

But I wanna try.

[music continues]

Thank you.

Is this a seawalker?

Yeah. It's been in
the family for ages.

Can you tell me about them?

Y-you wanna know about
island folklore?

People keep talking
about seawalkers.

I'm... just curious.

Okay, sure.

Uh, what do you wanna know?

I heard they can pass
themselves off as human.

So the legend says.

From what I remember, they can
only stay on land so long

before they have to go
back with the tides.

There's a call to remind them.

Supposedly, if they ignore it

they run out of air
and it kills them.

Unless they steal the breath
from a human's lungs.

The seawalker's kiss.

Yeah, people call it that
because from a distance..

It looks romantic.

[Miranda] What happens to
the person who gets kissed?

They die.

So people say.

But I think you're safe.

It's just a legend.

You want some coffee?

[music continues]

[seagulls squawking]


What are you doin' here?

I wanted to thank you

for saving me the other night.

You ran away so fast, I
didn't get a chance to.

Yeah. No problem.

How did you see me?

The waves were like
ten feet tall.

Just luck... I guess.

I gotta get back to work.

I saw your eyes..

In the water.

I should hope so.

They're right here on my face.

They were glowing.

Like, full on, "X-Men"
mutant glowing.

Next time you go swimming,
lay off the tequila.

I wasn't drunk when I saw
your scars on the beach.

Where'd they go?

[instrumental music]

You're welcome for
saving your life.

You need to go.


What you doing?

Going back in the water.

You can't swim.

- So teach me.
- No.

- Miranda?
- No. She isn't here.

I took care of the
police report.

Oh, God! Thank you.

You're a good friend.

Don't pretend this was
an act of kindness.

I hope it was worth it.



[instrumental music]

- Stop looking.
- I'm not.

So, uh, how come you've never
visited the island before?

My dad..

Kind of had a thing about water.

I miss him so much.

He just died.

And everyday I wake up..

And I remember all over again.


I'm sorry.


Something happened
to you in the water.

To your eyes.

Miranda, let this go.


I don't know if I can.

- I'm fine.
- Ginny, I mean...

Look, I didn't
narrowly escape death

to go home and watch
a movie, okay?

My bad.

Hey, no, don't go. I
didn't mean it like that.

You're on your own on this one.


It's like 90 proof,
but Bobby made it

so there's also like
a 90% possibility

there's roofies in it.

I'll take my chances, thanks.

Thanks for last night.

Yeah, sure.

- Bye, honey.
- See ya.

It doesn't make us friends, you know...
last night.

Is this about TJ?
Because we're good.

- I don't do that.
- It doesn't matter.

You just don't belong here.

[TJ] 'Ginny.'

Do you mind giving us a sec?


What's the matter with you?

What do mean what's
the matter with me?

What is your obsession
with that girl?

Are you seriously buying
her whole "Poor me" act?

It's not an act.
Miranda's dad just died.

Did it ever occur to you I
might wanna find a friend

who actually knows
what that's like?

Okay, I'm sorry.

You know what? I'm done, Ginny.

What? No, you can't
break up with me.

I can.

- I should have months ago.
- Look, TJ, uh..

Sometimes I say things and I
can hear how bitchy they are.

But I-I just can't stop myself.

Please don't do this to me.

I'm so messed up right now.

Kit was like the one person in
my family who wasn't awful.

- And now she's gone.
- And I'm sorry.

About your cousin, I really am.

But I can't do this anymore.

[instrumental music]


It's her. Isn't it?

What are you talkin' about?


That's why you were asking
so many questions yesterday.

I saw you with her on the beach.


I thought it was
dad, but it was you.

You've been following me.

I haven't been following you,
I've been following her.

Do you know what Finley'll do

if he finds out that
you're protecting her?

He already thinks that
you're a traitor, Leo.

Miranda heard the call.

And the other night when she
fell in the water, a shockwave

or something came out of her
body and everything lit up.

I've never seen
anything like it.

You shouldn't have saved her.

She's special, Nay.

What if she can save us?


I'm sorry.

[club music]

[indistinct chatter]

Hey, are you good?

- Should we...
- No way.

Whatever happened,
she deserves it.

Last year, she told everyone
I still had my V card.

I mean, I do, but...
it's not intentional.

It's not like I'm saving
myself for marriage.

- Wouldn't judge you if you..
- But I'm not.

And I was gonna do it with Zack
Parish just to get it over with

and Ginny had sex with him
on purpose so I couldn't.

I've even told TJ.

[Bobby] Hey, hey. Hey. New girl!

Okay, pick a fist. Pick-fisting.

Ugh... left.


Oh! Excellent choice.

Yeah, that's either
a oxy or ady.

I don't know, I-I dropped the
bottle, so I mixed them up.

Hard pass.


[dramatic music]

[bottle clinking]

[Bobby] Oh, ho! Whoa, hey!

[chuckles] Shouldn't you be
busting a table... somewhere?

Actually, your dad
gave me the night off.

He seems to like me.

- Get off my beach.
- Or what?

You're gonna pay your
butler to throw us out?

It's a public place.

Alright, alright. Take it easy.

Relax, let it go. Come on, go.

Ended things with Ginny.

- Definitely.

I really like you, Miranda.

- TJ, I can't do this.
- Sure you can.

I'm not talking about
anything serious.

But I like you. And I
think you like me.

And you broke up with
Ginny 30 seconds ago.

- I'm not that girl.
- Is this about Leo?

What? No.

Look, I know you
two have history.

But he saved my life
the other night.

Sure it wasn't the reason you're
in trouble in the first place?

Yeah, I am. He's a good guy, TJ.

Are you kidding? You
barely know him.

I've known him as long
as I've known you.

You need to open your eyes.

You saw what happened
to Kit's body.

You know she didn't drown.

Nothing on this island
ever happens by accident.

Just ask your mom.



Did your dad ever tell
you why he left Amelia?

She tried to kill you
when you were a baby.

I know that 'cause my dad
covered the entire thing up.

Hey, wait. Miranda!


[dramatic music]

[instrumental music]

[leaves rustling]


[Leo] 'Miranda.'

Are you okay?

I'm-I'm fine.

You're upset.

- Did someone hurt you?
- What?

- No.
- Sorry, I just thought..

Never mind.

Don't look at me like that.

What's wrong?

- Miranda..
- Nothing. I just..

Hate it here.

[Miranda crying]

Me, too.

I've gotta go.

[music continues]

Miranda? What are yo..
What are you doing?

- Is it true?
- Is what?

Did you try to kill me?

Oh, my God.

Social Services doesn't
know, do they?

That's why dad wouldn't
let you see me.

He knew you were a psycho!

You don't understand, I was
trying to protect you.

- I'm leaving.
- Miranda...

Don't touch me!

Please, don't go.

I love you.

Then how could you do it?

I-I can't answer that.

Right. Get out.

- Miranda...
- Get out!

[door slams]


Go home, Naomi.

I mean it.

I can't let you do this.

You need to stop
thinking with your dick.

Naomi, are you okay?

Get to the water. Go.

[engine rumbling]

Go. I'll be right behind you.

She's not worth dying for.

[music continues]

Fisherman, a waiter,
and now a peeping tom.

'That's quite the resume.'

Stay away from Miranda.

Or what?

What's the matter?

Not feeling too well?

Never better.

[music continues]

I know what you are.



Come on. Come on. Come on.

Come on.

[TJ] Bobby!

Bobby! Hey!


Come on, let's go.

[engine rumbling]

[music continues]


Get him on the chair.

'Get him on this chair.
Get him on this chair.'

Hey, hey! Cece, Cece.
Wh-wh-where are you going?

- Home. Everyone bailed and..
- Home? No, no, no. No!

Now, come on. The
night is still young.

It's still young. The
beer is lukewarm.

Are, are you okay?
You seem conf...

I've never been better.
I've never been better.

Just one, one more drink.

One more drink. Come on.

- Yeah. Okay.
- That's it. Okay.

We'll go get it. After you.
After you..

[instrumental music]

[Amelia] "Some legends say that
seawalkers are our brethren.

Passionate, feeling creatures
ruled by basic human emotion."

[knock on door]

Some say they are monsters.

- Miranda?
- TJ?

I'm sorry. I should've never
said anything about Amelia.

It's fine. Turns out
you were right.

Are you okay?

Everything's so screwed up.

I just want you to
stay away from Leo.

I wanted to take care of it
myself, but Bobby just..

Bobby, what?

He hit him so hard.
He wasn't moving.

What did you do? TJ,
what did you do?

[Amelia] "We all act like
monsters sometimes."

"Slave to our baser instincts."

- Here you go.
- Hm? Oh, thank you.

- Can I have some?
- Yeah! Yeah!

You know, in retrospect

I probably shouldn't
have had that-that pill.

There's three of you.

But don't worry, they're
both equally hot.


We are all creatures
driven by hunger..

And passion..

And fear.

We all have secret
places where we go.

Places where we face our demons

and fight to survive.

There are monsters in the deep.

But Miranda can never know.

He will take her
from this place.

Greg will keep my baby safe.

[music continues]


[Naomi] 'What are
you doing here?'

- Where's your brother?
- He's right behind me.

I can't wait anymore.


It's getting late.

We have to hurry.

[Naomi] What about Leo?

Let's go.
