The Crossing (2018): Season 1, Episode 2 - A Shadow Out of Time - full transcript

In a flash-forward, Reece adopts an orphaned Leah, going against the Apex. In present day, Jude works towards a peaceful solution with the government, but is surprised by a special forces team intent on capturing Reece at any cost.

MAN: No one expected
to arrive how we did,

in the water, beneath the surface.

Something went wrong.

Previously on "The Crossing"...

She's breathing!

There's one here! I got him.

- Little one over here!
- Hey, hey, hey!

You're okay.

Where'd they come from, Jude?

I don't know.

- [Crying]
- We were running away.

- From what?
- The war.

- But there's no war.
- There will be.

You listed a date of birth
almost 150 years from now.

CALEB: They took over every government.

- Who?
- Apex.

Man's next evolution.
They can do things we can't.

My mom kissed me, then she was gone.

You got any money? Better empty
your pockets just to be sure.

- Who did it to him?
- Said it was a woman.

I'm the sheriff! I'm dealing with this!

- You have no authority here!
- I said...


CRAIG: Heightened cognitive function,

fast-twitch muscle development.

We got to keep them sequestered
until we find out the truth.

We're not the first ones to come here.

How long have you been here?

Longer than you think.

Who were you looking for in the hangar?

My daughter.



We're close.

Control said there could be
up to 30 Commons here.

Be ready.

[Door creaks]



Mantle's disease.
Shame they never found the cure.

[Baby crying]



[Crying continues]

Such an ugly sound.

It's scared.

It's weak.

Look. When we get to the beach,
you stay in the car.

I do all the talking.

I don't want a repeat
of the plane hangar

or with the mugger on the dock, okay?


[Engine revs]



They must've taken them somewhere.


Look, wherever it is,

I'm sure it's a lot more
comfortable than this beach is.

You don't understand.

She can't be away from me.

I do understand. That's why we're here.

I know what it's like to be
apart from your kid.

We've come so far.

I can't lose her now.


I need to know I can trust you.

I just want my daughter.

All right. Let's go find her.


I'm starting to worry about you.

[Baby coos]



I'm gonna take care of you.

CALEB: We didn't know
if we'd survive the trip.

We weren't even sure what
we'd find once we got here.

If we got here.

We just knew staying behind
would be a death sentence.

Apex was determined to
exterminate us... all of us.

They burned centuries
of human history to the ground.

Destroyed everything we've ever known.

They stole our freedom.

They hunted us like animals.

They were genetically
engineered killing machines

without an ounce of compassion.

And the only safe place for us
was a world without Apex.

So we had no choice
but to try and find it.

BRYCE: Did you all know each other?

No, we were strangers.

It was whoever was lucky enough

to hear the whisper of the threshold.

I don't even know how many of us
made it through...

or where everybody landed.

[Indistinct shouting]

How many other camps
are there like this?

Where's everybody else?

Uh, this is the only camp.

How many... died?

400 people died in the water.

I'm sorry.



[Voice breaking] Our whole lives,

all we've known is loss.


You would think
it'd be easier to accept.

[Breathes shakily]

Would it be possible
to arrange a memorial?


They shouldn't be forgotten,

even if they were strangers.

I'll see what I can do.



[Birds chirping]


It's beautiful, isn't it?


It's so quiet, though.
I-I couldn't sleep.

[Bird calls]

I think there's something going on.


There's more guards around now,

and I heard they're taking saliva.


It's how they used to read DNA.

They can have mine if they want it.

Besides, I like having more guards.


It feels safe.



I brought you some fruit.

I'm not hungry.

You have to eat something.

You're gonna disappear.

We drove so far.

How will she find us?

My mom.



I'm so sorry, but your mom...

she's gone.


All right, I got to make some phone calls.

See if my deputies know anything.

Just, uh, don't go outside.

Stay away from the windows.

[Cellphone vibrates]

Hey, bud.

Hey, Dad. Do I need boots?

For... what?

Fishing. I don't have any boots.

No, no, no. No, we're good.

Y-You're all right.

Okay. See you tomorrow, Dad.

Can't wait to see your house.

Yeah, me too, bud.

Um, but, hey, uh...

Uh... it might not actually be
here at my house, okay?

[Sighs] Is it not a good time
to come visit?

No, no, no, no, no. It's a great time.

What, are you kidding me?

I just, um, I-I-I'm working on
something special.

Okay? But we are definitely on
for tomorrow.

So, I'll, uh... I'll give you
a call tomorrow, okay, bud?

Okay. Bye, Dad.

All right. Bye.

To clarify...

I help you get your daughter,

you get out of my town and my life.



[Air whooshes]

What? What is it?

Someone's here.

[Knock on door]

Stay out of sight.

- Hey.
- Hey.

Got any of that cold brew?

Dog kept me up all night.

Not a good time.

It's always a good time for cold brew.


You got somebody in there?

- No.
- Hey, listen.

As the unmarried man
in this particular situation,

you are duty-bound to report
any sort of erotic escapades.

- Nestor.
- In detail.

Why are you here?

[Inhales deeply]
Well, the hospital called.

Sounds like the Feds are asking
questions of our mugger.

- Give me a minute.
- All right. Tell her I said hi!

I got to go.

This could give me a lead to Leah.

- I'll go with you.
- I got this, okay?

This is what I do. I'll find her.

Besides, people are looking for you.

It's not safe.
Just... Just stay here, okay?


EMMA: If you can get the
majority of the people isolated,

then we can reach the road at the end.

Um, I'll catch up with you later.

Sheriff, good morning.

Yeah, it was.

Until I found out you were
talking to my prisoner.

Looks like Marvin had a rough night.

Marvin has been robbing people
for the last two months.

So whatever he got, he deserved.

Sounds like he "got" the woman

who put my agent in the hospital,

but I'm guessing you already know that.

I thought we agreed
to share information.

We didn't, actually,
but feel free to start

by telling me where you,
uh, took the survivors.

I can't.

Right. Good talk.

She's looking for something,

and I don't think she's leaving
until she finds it.

[Sighs] She's a danger to your
town, that's what you said.

Or maybe she just came here
for a better life.


I need to show you something.

CALEB: Apex.
They took over the government.

They took over every government.

They wanted to wipe us out,
so they created a virus...


...Mantle's Disease.

It killed everything
it touched. Whole cities.

Tens of millions of people.

If you knew someone who was infected,

- you had to leave them.
- You had to run.

Apex wasn't affected
'cause they engineered it

so they would be immune.

REBECCA: They could walk
into any infected area

and just take out the resistance.

They wanted this planet for themselves.


And now they have it.


Do you believe this?

"Believe" is a strong word.

But I'm a lot closer than I was.

Look, can we just work together?

[Exhales sharply] Yeah.

[Engine starts]

[Beep, static]

She's headed your way.

- [Beeps]
- I'm on her.






MAN: You need to reconsider.

Harboring a Common is a crime,
and rightly so.

Look at her.

Is she that different from us?

[Baby coos]

The state paired
us to provide one another

with counsel and emotional support.

Now I am counseling you now...
you cannot keep her.

She will be discovered.
If that happens...

No one needs to know.

Why are you doing this?

[Baby coos]

I have love for her.



We could petition the department

for a procreation waiver and get...

I'm not giving her up.






LINDAUER: I want us doing everything
in our power to locate this woman.

We are. We have
undercover agents in town,

we're monitoring police bands,

and I had a productive
conversation with the Sheriff.

I don't want him involved.

He's involved whether we like it or not.

It's to our advantage
to make him an asset.

What are you worried about?

I'm worried about the prospect
of us having to explain

how we lost a potential terrorist.


So you don't believe in the Apex thing?

What do you think?

Then why are we DNA testing
the whole camp?

Genealogy. We need to establish
where these people are from

before figuring out where they can go.

And what about the survivor
I sent you... Thomas?

Has he said anything more
about the earlier migration?

Nothing credible.

His story fell apart
in about 60 seconds.

So I should expect him back soon?

No. I need a little more time with him.

Please tell me this isn't happening.

I wish I could.

So everything we did
to change the future,

everything we sacrificed...
it was for nothing?

Honestly, all that's
beyond my scope right now.

I've got more immediate concerns.

Why even bother?
We all need to disappear.

That's Eve's decision.

Well, have you heard from her?

She lands in two hours.

How many people survived? I heard 40.

- 47.
- [Scoffs]

It gets worse. An Apex got through.

Where is it?

My team's working on it.

I'll have details soon.

No games. No torture.
You're just gonna kill it.


There will be torture.

There absolutely will be torture.

Get me a location.



[Cellphone ringing]

- Hey, Jude.
- Martin.

I saw your press conference yesterday.

What is going on up there?

Yeah, I don't know yet. Uh, look.

I know it's been a while,
but I need some legal advice.


Look, I-I'm dealing with this woman

from, uh... out of state.

S-She just wants to get back
with her daughter.

She may or may not have
a criminal background.

I-I can't say for sure.

My question is, i-if I...
if I reunite them,

am I on the hook for anything
she might do once I bow out?

Stop, stop, stop.

Not another word.

Look, Jude. Did...

Didn't you learn anything
from the Doucette case?

Yes, of course I did.

Look, I'm not... I'm not testifying

against anyone here, okay?

She's got a kid.

And so do you!

Whatever the hell
you're doing, just remember...

put your family first this time.



[Phone rings]

Oh, come on, Marshall.

What'd you do now?

Allegedly I hit a guy. I don't know.

What do you mean, you don't know?

I wasn't there.

You weren't there?

I need to borrow you for a minute.

- Welcome back, Marshall.
- Sheriff.

Shut the door.


Okay, here's the deal...

Before you say anything...

I followed that... that Agent Ren

like you asked me to. And, um...

[Computer mouse clicking]

I stayed with her

'til she turned on that road
right there...

that service road.

Now, I couldn't hold the tail
because there was another Fed

that was parked
over that ridge right there,

but she was headed straight for...


- What is that?
- Camp Tamanowas.

I may or may not have
lost my virginity there.

Summer camp?

Yeah. Now, they shut it down
about ten years ago,

but there's room for 50 people
there, easy.

I'm telling you, I t-think

this is where they took the survivors.


What are you doing?

It's none of our business.

I thought you wanted to know
where they were.

I don't. Not anymore.

Close the door on your way out.







How long has she had the rash?

12 hours. Maybe less?
But there's no fever.

That's when it gets bad, right?
When there's a fever?

That's right.

Can you help her?


[Exhales deeply]

Why are you trying to save a Common?

I believe the price includes
no questions asked.


The Mantle's is in her blood.

I can't get it out, but maybe
I can help her body fight it.

If I use your blood, your immunology...

maybe there's a chance.

Hey, baby girl. It's gonna be okay.

Just hold on, okay?

It's gonna be okay.





[Telephone rings]

What now?

RAWLINS: I think I'm looking
at your Chevelle.

That's impossible.
The engine's dismantled.

Well, it looks just like it.

Wait. What was the plate number?

[Siren chirps]

Driver of the car, exit the vehicle.





[Engine revs, tires screech]

[Siren wails]

Dispatch, this is Bat-2-1.

I got a runner heading north
on Pinehurst. I'm in pursuit.

[Wailing continues]

[Horn blares]

[Engine revving]

[Tires screech]

[Tires screech]



[Knock on door]



I'd offer to help you unpack,

but this looks like
a one-person job. [Chuckles]

I guess you weren't able to
bring anything from home.

Piece of jewelry. This locket.

I-I lost it in the ocean.


Well, let me know if you need anything.

[Indistinct conversations]

Hey, welcome back.

What'd you learn in town?

Don't mug an Apex.


How we doing with the DNA tests?

Uh, good. Just got one to go.

She was sleeping all day.
Didn't want to wake her.


[Birds chirping]



She hasn't eaten since we arrived.

She doesn't want to do anything.

I'm worried about her.

Rebecca, she's not yours to worry about.

We don't know what's gonna happen here.

She just reminds me so much...

I know.


BRYCE: Excuse me.

Could we, uh... could you bring
Leah to the office?


[Birds chirping]

[Indistinct conversations]

- Hey.
- Hey.

I put her in the garage for prints.

There's not a scratch on her.
Keys were left in the column.

Did you see which way she went?


All right. Thanks.


[Cellphone rings]

Emma Ren.


Put him in the tank, Nestor.

- I got my eye on him.
- Do it now.

You were supposed to wait for me.

I needed some things.

You stole my car.

I fixed your car.

Besides, I was gonna give it back.

What's in the bag?


Give it to me.

Come on.


Did you find out where they took Leah?


It's for protection.

Once I get her back,
I can't take any chances.

[Drawer opens, then closes]

Do you know where she is or not?

I do.

But I'm not going to take you to her

unless I know you've been
straight with me

about who you are and why you're here.

I'm here because
I made a promise to Leah.


Good job.

You get a prize for that.

A prize?


When I was a kid,
my mom took me to a doctor

who had a whole chest of candy.

After every visit,
I got to pick one piece.

And two if I had to get a shot.

- Gummies!
- Uh-huh.


Is there something wrong with your arm?

No. It's fine.

Let me see.

It's okay, sweetheart. It's okay.

Oh, my gosh.


What is it?


[Breathes shakily]

What is it?

This is Mantle's disease.



Over there.


Let's get her inside.
Clear the infirmary.

She needs to be isolated.
Contact Lindauer.

Tell him we need the CDC.

REECE: How much longer?

JUDE: Only five more miles.



Do you think she'll like it?

I don't know. She like pigs?

I don't think she's seen many.

Well, those are all the rage,
so I'm sure she'll love it.


The Commons have made rapid progress

on the device that
can bend time... allegedly.

- Time travel?
- Correct.

This rumor has floated around before,

but my informant swears that it's real.

I should have more intel tomorrow.

Excellent work, Agent Reece.

- Will that be all?
- Not quite.

A matter has come to our attention

involving a severe breach in regulation.

- [Door opens]
- Is there anything

that you'd like to confess?

I have always been and remain
loyal to the state.

We've had every reason to believe so...

until today.

I told you it was a matter of time.

At least now the secret is out.

Let them take the child,
put it out of its misery,

and we can move past this.

Please. Let me explain.

Agent Reece,

the act of harboring
an undocumented Common child

is tantamount to treason.

Violation of state code is punishable

by immediate transfer to
reeducation facilities.

Do you comply?

Yes or no.



I comply.

Then I hereby sentence you
to immediate...

- [Grunts]
- [Groans]



Why would you...

I had... I had no choice.

You had a choice.

Please don't do this.

They will find you.

You know they will.


[Engine shuts off]

This is it.

They're keeping them here?

No, this place is empty.

I asked that Leah be brought here.

Neutral ground. No other police, okay?



[Seagulls caw]

You look nervous.

Just feel a bit exposed out here.

Maybe we should wait inside.

Give me a weapon.

You don't need a weapon.
You are a weapon.





Used to build all kinds of sailing ships

in here in the 1800s.

During Prohibition
it was mostly rumrunners.

Keep telling the Mayor

that she ought to turn it
into a museum, but...

I just feel like some history
should be preserved.

Yeah. Watch your step.


Oh, all the way through here.

And we can see them coming.
No surprises.


Listen to me!


I don't want to hurt you.

I want to believe
you're telling the truth

and that you're only here for Leah.

But you left out some of the more...

colorful genocidal admissions
from your story.

I have to weigh that!

Get me out of here!


You're wasting bullets.

Door's eight inches of...


...hard Maple.


[Breathing heavily] I trusted you.

You told me about Mantle's Disease.

But you left out the part

that Apex, your people, created it.

I had nothing to do with it.

I'm sorry.

But we're gonna have to do this my way.

You're gonna suffer for this.

[Cellphone ringing]


I've got her. The Apex, Reece.


I don't know much longer I can hold her,
so you need to get here.

Only you.

I've secured her in a location
about 25 miles from you...

Camp Tamanowas, if I'm not mistaken.

Yeah, that's right.
I know where they are.

The three of us, we're gonna
talk about this

on neutral ground because I, for
one, am losing my objectivity.

How do I know I can trust you?

I know where they are,
so you do something stupid,

I go public. We clear?

Send me the location.




[Breathes deeply]

Mom, why do we have to go?

You always said it's not safe
for me to be outside.

I know I did. But things change.

I found a place that's better for us.


Where you don't have to hide anymore.

There's gonna be kids
that are just like you.

And the best part?
We get to be together.

Is it far?

It's very far.

But it won't take long to get there.

What's it called?

[Zipper closes]

It's called the Long Peace.

And doesn't that sound nice?

You know you mean everything to me.

I love you so much, baby girl.

You're everything to me, too.




[Indistinct conversations]

Nice work, agent. Keep me apprised.

We've got a location on the Apex.

All right.

[Helicopters whirring]

EMMA: What?

[Whirring continues]

[Whirring continues]



[Whirring intensifies]





[Panting, grunting]



[Regulated breathing]


[Machine-gun fire]

- [Machine-gun fire]
- [Groans]

[Machine-gun fire]



[Indistinct whispered conversations]









REECE: It was hard to run with a child.

And we knew they would come
for us eventually.

They did.

Apex spared children sometimes.

Children who excelled in
certain fields of study.

No one knew what they were used for.

Labor. Experiments.

Our daughter... they took
her while we slept.


I don't sleep much anymore.

It was my husband's idea to come here.

We heard that someone
had discovered something...

a way to bend time.


This is incredible.

And there's hours more.

I mean, this is...

And they're all saying the same thing.

It's almost like it's scripted.

So, what, you think
it's some kind of hoax?

A hoax would suggest it's harmless.

You think they're dangerous.

I think it's possible.

Well, if that's the case,
we should loop in Harris.

Bureau's gonna want to see this.

John, I think that's premature.

You're already overseeing
50,000 asylum-seekers

in a hundred detention camps
across the U.S.

Let me take this off your plate.

That's a lot of responsibility.

It's 47 people.
It's a drop in the bucket.

Let's keep it off the books,
no outside interference.

Give me this,
and I'll get you the truth.


The camp's yours.

[Door opens]


[Door closes]


[Cellphone rings]

It's done.

The refugees are secured.

I'll put together a plan on what
to do with them in the future.

There is no future for them.

No one can ever know they're here.

Ever. There's too much at stake.

[Seagulls caw]

- [Phone vibrates]
- [Gasps]









[Cellphone rings]

- Yeah?
- Jude, I've been trying

to reach you all night. Are you okay?

Are you serious? No, I'm not okay, Emma.

I trusted you.

We had a deal, and then SEAL
Team Six drops out of the sky.

Before you know it, I'm being gassed,

and I wake up 20 miles away in my car.

What happened at the shipyard,
that was not my call.

What happened to Reece? The suspect.

By the time I arrived,
the site was locked off.

I was told she resisted arrest.

The strike team
had to employ lethal force.


Jude, I really need to talk to you.

I'm done talking. My kid's coming today,

and I'm gonna be as far away
from you as possible, okay?

[Indistinct conversations]

[Doorbell rings]

- Hey, little man!
- Daddy!

Hey! Ohh, I missed you.

I like your house.

Yeah? Your mom tell you to say that?

[Rock music plays]

[Whistling to music]
