Siren (2018–…): Season 2, Episode 4 - full transcript

Previously on "Siren"...

You know some nut actually
tried to convince me

that Bristol Cove mermaids
were real the other day?

Now I got a contact in my
phone for "Crazy Calvin."

They can't last much longer here.

They need to go back tonight.

I got some ideas.

All right.

What if the way I feel about you

has nothing to do with the song?

We've never met,

but I think you've been looking for me.

Keep off of me!



He's gonna be a problem.

You weak.

She will die.




Ryn! No!







I go.

I sleep. But I see.

You had a dream.


That doesn't happen in the water?


Humans dream all the time.


A lot of times it's how our

minds deal with anxieties.

Um, things we want or desire.

Things that scare us
or we don't understand.

Oh, hey, Maddie.

- Hi, Burt.
- All right.

Uh, the usual, please.

All right then. Hey, friend.

Ben is in my dream.

I am scared of him?

I don't think you're scared
of him like he's bad.

You might just be scared
of your feelings for him.

We were just talking about you.

You guys almost done?

Yeah. Why? Everything okay there?

Not exactly.

Okay. Thanks.

We're on our way.

What's going on?!

The whole listening
thing, it's a problem!


- Stop!
- What the...

I tried that.


See, one on one, they're manageable.

All together, it's a free-for-all.

In water, they hunt, fight, rest...

Always something to do.

Well, if they keep it up in here,

someone's gonna find them.

No more.

Always we are family, but not together.

You want to split them up?

We must.

I'll take it.

We make new home for them.

They stay with humans.

It's fish in a sandwich.

Ones we trust.


Males will guard the tank.

Ben, don't get me wrong.

I am grateful for the
business and all, but, uh,

I'm getting the feeling
that some of these people

aren't underage exchange students.

- Uh...
- We will teach.

Yeah, they're Ryn's extended family.

Okay, Fishers.

Who's up first?

They will learn.

I want you to look
right into the camera.

Three, two, one.

Okay, uh...

Yeah, we'll do that again.

Yeah, one more. Try to relax your face.

Three, two, one.


They do what humans do.

When they need to go to water,

they use tank.

Just one of you.

Uh, yeah. I guess, yeah,

if you could sit down.

One, two, three.

Three, two, one.

We're happy.

Just look right at the camera, please.

Right at the camera.

You look gorgeous, darling.

They will blend in.

All right, big guy, you're...

You're up.

And be just like humans.

One, two, three.

Sorry, I was running a
little low on inspiration

towards the end there, but, uh...

I do like a good pair of Levi's, Levi.


No fight!

- Speak.
- Ben.

Wants to go with Ben.


Ryn, he killed Sean.

They tell him to do this.

To fight.

That doesn't change what happened.

What's Xander gonna think,

me watching him?

He doesn't have to know.

I can't keep it from him forever.

Not forever, just for now.

It's best for everyone.

All right.

Wanna put that up there?

All right, good.

Hey, uh, no.

That way.



Um, if he wants to learn
how to be a man, he...

Couldn't have picked a better one.

Thanks, Mads.

Call if you need anything.

Sorry. Old habit.

No. No, no, no.

It's a good one.

- Whoa!
- Sorry. Old habit.


No. No, no, no, no.

It's not... It's not wrong.

It's, uh...


You don't kiss a person

unless they want to be kissed.

That's kind of the rule.



Lots of rules about kissing.

I know it hasn't been easy for you

with me being here, but I don't...

This isn't about you, Mom.

I've been thinking about
moving for a while.

Already signed the lease.

Besides, it's not that far.

It's on Spring Street, not Seattle.

Does Dad know?

I'll tell him when he gets back.

He is not gonna

like being kept in the dark.

Maybe you should just wait.

Mom, it's okay.

We have an understanding.

Moving day's gonna need a lunch break.

How about we meet up at Rusty's?



I'll be there.

No hunt.

No fight.

Men do nothing.

We do a lot of things.

Yeah, beer.


We drink that.

Yeah. We watch that

when we're not working.

Probably a little too much, actually.

See, sometimes we hang out with friends.

Maddie friend.


This is my family.



Do you know who that is?

Man I kill.

His name was Sean.

Okay? And this is Xander.

Here. My friend.

My friend.



I need to go out for a little while.

Want to take a ride?

Come on.

Come on.

Come on.

No, no, no, no, no.

I need you to wait here.

All right? I'm going to talk to someone.

You don't leave the car.

Don't leave car.

- Here.
- ... this Thursday.

That's right, my 17th caller

- wins front-row tickets...
- I'll be right back.

... and a limo package. Call in now.

I tried to call.

Yeah, well, I guess we
both have a bad habit

of ignoring each
other's calls then, huh?

I'm sorry.

Things have been... busy.

I heard about your rager,

at the family cabin?

I'm just trying to keep them safe, Xan.

They still there?

Did you move 'em?

What about the one
who, uh, killed my dad?

He still with 'em?

We should talk.

Xan, like, really talk this time.

I already said everything I have to say.

Yeah, I heard you loud and clear.

But there's a lot that you don't know.

The male, he's just a soldier

doing what he's told.

Is that why you came out
here, man? To defend him?

We were in the wrong place
at the wrong time, Xan,

and that is my fault, not his.

His family were being starved out.


Xander, I need you to try
and make peace with this,

because he could be here for a while.

Your dad was like a father to me, too.

Stop, man!


I said I was cool.

Look, you don't have to worry about me.

Just gonna stay out here on my boat.

Gonna deal with this in my own way.

That okay with you?

Oh, early bird gets the worm.

I'm still trying to figure out

how we have never
bumped into each other,

living so close all these years.

I don't really get out that much. Um...

I don't really fit in.

Me neither.

Even as a little girl,

I knew I was different.

I felt a little bit
like a freak at times.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

My mother. She lived till she was 90.

Smoked a pack a day, unfiltered,

just like her attitude.

Uh, what about your parents?

My mom died when I was younger,

and I never really knew my dad.

I'm so sorry.

Any siblings?

Nah, just me.


Mind if I ask what
happened to your mother?

She was an addict.


Things got bad.

Addiction's been a reoccurring

theme in my family, too.

Genetics, right?

That's probably why
I was blessed with it.

Addiction, mental illness,

rare autoimmune condition?


People in my line

have skin like us.

They say it's this or that.

The cause always changes,

but that's because they've

never really known.

Um, which reminds me.

There's a old family recipe

that does the trick.

I've tried, like...

It's for you.

Try it.


Use it.


Thank you. I gotta...

I'm gonna... I'm kind of late.

- I'm late for work, so...
- Come back, anytime.

There's so much more we...

We have to talk about.

You would down three chili

dogs when you were a kid.

- Thank you.
- Thanks.

Yeah, then I discovered what's in them.

Well, keep that to yourself,

because they're still good to me,

and, plus, it's tradition.


Yeah, isn't that why
you picked this place?

When you were a teenager,
I would let you skip school

so that we could have
girls' day, remember?

Matinees, Mani-pedis,

capped off with chili dogs at Rusty's.

Hm. And we never told your dad.

It was always our little secret.

Until the principal called
about too many absences.

Cost me a few soccer games.

All right, there's always someone

trying to spoil a good thing.


If you have to go...

No, no, it's okay.

Well, I want to give you something.

You didn't have to do that.

I wanted to do it.

Open it. It isn't much, but just...

This is mine.

I don't understand.

You're giving me my own necklace?

I went through your things, I know,

but turn it over.

- _
- I had it engraved,

so that we are always
together by your heart.

You don't like it.

No, I do.

It's okay. It's nice.

Thank you.

Hey, you know, uh,

you don't have to do
everything exactly like me.

I know that in the water

you have to listen to
everything the females say.

Not land.

No. You still need to listen to women.

That's very important.

You just...

You can be your own person,

if that makes sense.


Don't worry.

You'll learn.



Damn, you got some
strength on you, girl.

You're a force of nature,

like Hurricane Katrina down there.

Unh! Aah!

Don't want to hurt you, Katrina.

I just want to know where he is.

The one who killed my dad.

All we got is time.

Let me know when
you're ready to talk, huh?


You miss her.

♪ American girl will make you ♪

♪ American girl will wreck you ♪


She shouldn't be doing that.

What is she doing?

She is sad.

She does this to feel better.

I have dream, but

no sleep.

A daydream.




He's on your mind.

You care about him.

That's why you can't
stop thinking about him.

Who do you think about?

I think about Ben.

And you.


In there.

Uh, you are not ready for that yet.

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Wait! Wait!

Hey! Come on, man!

- Come on!
- Okay.

Hurry it up!

Let's go! Let's go, Calvin!

He wants to take all day.

What's goin' on, man?

Hey. What can I get ya?

Beer pong's just
starting if you want in.


Not bad, not bad.

- Yeah!
- Ohh!

- What?!
- Woof Woof!

Come on! What?!

Drink! Drink! Drink!

Drink! Drink!

Drink! Drink! Drink!


You my next victim?

Here we go.

Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink!

Drink! Drink!

- Whoa!
- Whoo-hoo!

Yeah! Hoo!

Ohh! Boy!

So you ready to talk?

Where'd they go, the others?


You know who I'm talking about.

The male.

The one who killed my dad.


He's the one I want.

Now, you point me in his direction,

I'll let you go.

You with me?

Oh, shit.

Drink, baby, drink.

Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

Go! Go! Go!

Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!


You hustled me, man!

You hustled me!

Hey, hey, hey! Easy!

Easy! Easy! Easy! Come on.

Why you always gotta
start something, huh?

- Fight.
- No, no fight.

No fight, okay?

Sometimes not fighting is
what makes you the winner.

Okay? Knowing when to walk away.

Men fight. Protect.

Okay, we have to go.

No go.


Learn more.

I get it now.

Cute place.

Glen, what are you doing here?

You called me.

It was a mistake.

No, I know that sound in your voice,

like you needed help.

All I want to do is help.

I'm fine.

Everything is fine.

Well, the truth is...

Is I need you, Susan.

I've really missed you.

And I know

you need me, too.



Yeah, yeah. Lot's of...

Lots of people come here to kiss.

- Only if want.
- That's right.

♪ When it hurts real bad ♪

♪ Don't give up ♪

In water no kiss.

So in the water,

how do you choose, um,

a female, you know, to... to mate?


Yeah, you know, like male, female.

- Make more.
- Yes, yes.

Make more. How do you choose?

Female choose.

Right, okay.

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

Okay. Yeah, we probably
shouldn't do that in here.


That's amazing.

Then what happens?


She scratches you?

Oh, she... She bites you on the neck.



She sl... She hits you?

She hits with her tail?

She hits you with her tail.

- Wow.
- Pain.

Well, yeah.

How many females do you do this with?


Hey, can I get you boys anything?

Uh, we're... we're good, thanks.

It's Ben, right?

Yeah. Sorry.

Do we... Do we know each other?

You're a friend of Xander's.

I saw your picture on his boat.

- We've been hanging out.
- Oh.

- I'm Nicole.
- Levi.

Well, uh, let me know
if you boys need anything.

♪ Don't give up, no ♪

I think that's your color.

I can't imagine there's any use

for make-up underwater.

But on land, it tends to

attract a lot of attention.

Let's try it on.


You're back.


Doctors, shamans,

every Internet quack out there,

I've read them all, and
nothing has ever worked.


and, uh...

You said there was more to talk about.



So are you all right?

Well, yeah, at the moment.

Levi wanted to learn about mating,

and I learned a little bit myself.

He does this... This
thing with his neck.

Hey, hey.

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

You can show her later.

Okay. We go.


Want to learn.

You listen.

♪ Oh, she sink her teeth in ♪



What you waitin' for, huh?

Go ahead.

Jump. Go on.

Yeah. You see, Ben,

he told me why you can't
go back in the water.


If you kill me,

you're stuck out here.

No way home.

So why don't you just

put it down?

Come on. Just...

That's it.

Let's talk, yeah?

I think we can help each other.

Pick one.

Don't tell me you don't
have a favorite song.

Levi is already doing
better with the ladies

than I ever did.

You did all right.

I have a dream.

About Ben.

They don't normally dream in the water.

This is new for her.


Maddie says it is because I want you.


Another round?

Uh, this is Nicole.

She's been hangin' out with Xander.

That's one way to put it.

Nice to finally meet you guys.

Me, too.

Hey, what are you doing?


Uh, one too many.

Yeah, exactly.

This one is good for dancing close.

We should go! Now!

Go, go.

Didn't know marine biologists

had such a mean right hook.

Yeah. Well, that's not the only thing

I learned from this guy tonight.

I'm sure you taught
him some things, too.

No listen when women talk.

No, no, no, I... I didn't say that.

Not hungry?

Oh, I'm good.

Had one for lunch.

Hey, I always loved that on you.

Yeah. Me, too.

If you can handle them,
I'm gonna swing home.

- Check on my mom.
- Okay.

You want to meet up later?

For sure.

Yeah, that's your problem.

Right there. That's the reason
you can't go back in the water.

No, it's okay.

Take 'em.

If you help me with my problem,

I'll help you with yours.

You sleep.

I watch.

I don't know what you're
trying to tell me.

Uh, there's a reason
that I felt so different,

that you feel different.

Different how?

It's not just other people
we're different from.

We're different from people, period.

More like hybrids,


Kind of like when DNA tests

say that people are part Neanderthal?

More like when this test says "unknown."

Okay, okay.

Um, it's getting late.

Oh, hold on. Don't go anywhere.

I'll be right back.

Uh, I think the shop's closed.

Telling you wouldn't have worked.

You have to feel it
before you can believe.

You're still up.

Brought you a midnight snack.

Plenty of napkins, too.

Soon as Dad gets back,
I want you guys to come over.

See my new place.



Maddie, when did you get home?

You're high.


Yeah, I had fun today.

Yes. Fun.

Hey. Is everything okay?

She's high.

Using again.

Hey, come here.

I'm... I'm so sorry.

I'm just glad I have this place.

And the two of you.
