The Mist (2017): Season 1, Episode 7 - Over the River and Through the Woods - full transcript

Kevin's group finds an unlikely sanctuary in the psych ward. Tensions at the mall grow as food runs low. Nathalie and Father Romanov face off at the church.

Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -
Previously on "The Mist"...

I cannot do what you ask of me.

I can.

You must repent.


No! No! Please! No.

Let me help you die.

I will put a bullet

in whatever body part
you touch her with.

- Understood?
- Yeah.

What's going on?

I can't find a solution without...


- [screams]
- Get Kevin!


MIA: Let's go!

ADRIAN: And where the hell are we going?

The only place the doors will stay shut.

- Where?
- The psych ward.

- Open up!
- Open the door!

MIA: Anybody in there?!

- Come on!
- Hey, come on! Let us in!

- Help! Help!
- Hurry!

- MAN: Who is it?
- Let us in, please.

How do I know that you're not
part of that thing out there?

Look, I-I'm Anna Lambert's daughter.

She was here.

Please! Just let us in.

Come on.

[chains jangling]

Yeah, I'm sorry about that.

You can't be too careful.

Thank you.

Yeah, come on in.

- Sit him down... Whoa! Whoa!
- Oh, what's with him?

Crazy doctor drugged him.

Yeah, welcome to my world.

We can't stay here. We gotta go.

Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Whoa, whoa, no, no,
you don't look like someone

who... who should be traveling
right now.

He's right. We need rest.

Yeah, well, there's not a lot
of people left around here.

T-There's rooms down the hallway.

Beds are already made.

Help yourself.

Hey, um, and I-I'm so sorry,

uh, about your mom.

She wasn't like the rest of them.

Nothing bad in her.



Thought you wanted to be alone.

What do you mean?

You took off.

Well, if you let me, I can...
I can explain.

No touching.

That's a shame.
I really wanted to shoot him.

Save your bullets. If Jay's right,

if they're really going crazy out there,

throwing people out of the mall,
then we'll need the bullets.

And if they're not,

he's a bigger psychopath
than we thought,

so I guess we'll have to find out.

Do they work?

The fancy ones didn't,
but the simple battery ones do.

Well, here's to simple things.


[knock on door]

MAN: Gus?

Gus, are you in there?

Hold on a sec.

Come in.

We have a bit of a situation downstairs.

- GUS: Hey!
- Get the fuck off me, man.

- [scuffling]
- Hey!

What the hell is going on?

He tried to skip the rations
and just eat whatever he wanted.

You out of your mind?

We've got two days worth
of rations left.

Wasn't me. It was Kyle.

I'm starving, man.

We all are.

All we got is biscuits and tea left.

I'm not the fucking Queen of England.

And you saw the pamphlets.
The military's coming.

But we don't know when,
and we don't know

how large an area
they spread the fliers over.

What do you want?

Just seeing if I could borrow
some of your board games.

- You don't have any business here.
- Yeah.


[humming a tune]

I love that song.

Mm, me, too. I find it comforting.

My father would beat my mother.

My sister would bring my brother
and me into her room,

and she'd play it,
turn it up as loud as she could.

I hate that song.

My wife loved it.


- All done for now.
- Mm, thank you, Doctor.


You must of get a lot of that
here, huh, Father?

Excuse me?

I said you must get a lot of that here,

men beating women,

absolving them of their sins.

Sins are unfortunately
a part of being human.

It's horrible,
watching a man beat a woman.

Nothing worse.

I've been a cop for over 15 years.

It's about the only thing I'm good at,

like knowing when people
are hiding things.

You haven't touched your food.


Guilt's a real appetite killer.

So is fear.

There is something worse
than men beating women.

It's when a man is such a coward

that he has someone else do it for him.

Chief Heisel, in your experience,

do priests often beat older ladies?


but they know how to manipulate
altar boys.

Mr. Heisel...

Do you have something to confess?




Stop it! Help him!


Nobody's gonna help you.

[Nathalie resumes humming tune]

[Father Romanov spits]

[blow lands]

Look, your name isn't Bryan Hunt.

It's Jonah Dixon.

You beat up a solider called
Bryan Hunt up at Arrowhead.

You stole his clothes.

I met Bryan,

and that's why I took off.

Now, either you really do have
memory loss, or you're a psycho.

Which is it?

I... I didn't know.

I swear.

Didn't know what?

My name.

I met him after you left.

He tried to kill me.

I'm Jonah?

You're Jonah.

Where'd you go?

I, uh...

I went to my mother's house,

wanted to run away.

And my mom was there.

Or you know.

And she wanted to help me die,

and I didn't want to,

and I was so surprised that I didn't,

'cause I have nothing to live for.


Except maybe... maybe I do.

I believe you, and...

I want to be someone you can believe in.

But to be that, I need your help.


I'm gonna do rapid detox.

I take opiate blockers,

and they'll work in my body
for five, six hours,

and when I'm done, I'll be clean.

And what I need you to do is tie me up

and not let me out.


'Cause it's usually done under
general anesthesia, for good reason.




Where are we going?

A room far away.

There'll be lots of screaming.

[no audible dialogue]

- [walkie-talkie crackles]
- [chatter over walkie-talkie]

Help must be on the way.

Yeah, but we only have
two days of food left.


- You can't trust him.
- I trust myself.

You're 16. You don't know who...

What are your qualifications, then?

What do you mean?

For knowing whom I should trust.

I'm your mom.

That's my qualification,

and I will kick him out
of the loading dock.

They might be crazy out there,
but he'll be safe.

- Okay.
- Okay.

I mean, if it's safe,

then I'm sure you don't mind
if I crash out there,

if I go with him.

Not a chance in hell.

Then I guess he stays.

I can't sleep.

Yeah, me neither.

What's the worst thing
you've ever done to somebody?

There was a kid.

Everyone... Everyone hated him.

I'd see him at school,

swishing around like a little faggot.

The way he looked at you,

it made me sick.

Knew for weeks I wanted to hurt him.

Then one day after practice...

he smiled at me.

And then what happened?

I beat him up.

Took his arm,

put it behind his back,

and broke it.

I wanted him to beg me to stop,
but he didn't.

I, um...

I took my dick out.

I asked him, "Was this what you want?"

And I pissed on him.

He never told anyone.

I respected that.

I'm sorry.

I-I'm so sorry.

I forgive you.

[groans] My God.


You okay?

Yeah, just make them tighter.

Make them tighter.

Look, no matter what happens,

you don't let me out
of these things, okay,

no matter how bad it gets.

Thank you. Thank you.

I wanted to thank you, Link.

I want to thank you for your sacrifice.

I want you to know
it will not be in vain.


I want you to know that your faith in me

continues to inspire me,
even after you're gone.

It's because of that
that I now know what I must do.

And I wanted to thank you for that.


Goodbye, Link.

[knock on door]

May I sit?

What are you reading?

The Bible.

I was curious. I've never read it.

Lots of loose ends.


Do you really believe in all this?

Fallen angels?



And you think I'm crazy?

I think you're trying
to help these people,

but you're leading them astray.

Do you realize you have
the destiny of their souls

in your hands now?

If I believed in souls,
I would worry about yours.

I deserve that.

I knew what Link was going
to do, and I allowed it.

I have prayed for forgiveness.

I don't know if I will get it.

All I know is that I did it
to save the people here.

And if I don't continue to try,

I have no reason to be alive.

More violence, Father?

Do you know what a trial by ordeal is?

Tell me.

It is a test of life and death,

where the proof
of innocence is survival.

What kind of test would that be?

We walk into the mist, you and I.

I believe God will spare me,

as I am sure you believe
Nature will spare you.

Whoever dies, we will provide
an answer for the people here.

They will know who to follow.

I'm willing to risk my life
to give them that answer.

Are you?

- [door closes]
- [gasps]

Hey. Hey.

- Mm?
- Hey, hey.

Have you seen Adrian?

No. Why?

Well, it's just, um...
it's just he wasn't in his room.

He's probably in the bathroom.

Yeah, d-don't... don't waste
your time looking for him.

What do you mean?

Eh, he... he's not a good person.

Uh, yeah, I... I see people.


just like I saw the... the girl's
mom, uh, Mrs. Lambert,

and... and I knew she was...
she was good,

and I... I... I saw him,

and... and I...
and I knew that he is evil.

Come on.

- Adrian?
- Adrian!

- Adrian.
- Adrian!

- Adrian!
- Adrian!



Eh, see... see, I... I told the doctor

I... I can't see people
when he gives me the medicine.

You know, he... he... he's dead now,
and it is so clear.

They all had evil in them.

Where is Adrian?

Yeah, I'm... I'm not done with him yet.



Hey! Come on!

Come on!

Come on! Let us in.

Let us in!

I can't do it. Please. Please let me out.

Please. [gasps]


Please. I changed my mind.
Please let me go.


Please, please, let me go.

You told me not to.

Please. Please.

Well, I change my mind.

Please. Please, let me go.

Jonah, please.

I'm sorry.

Get me the fuck out of here! Please!


I... I know more about you, you know.

Bryan told me everything.

I know where you're from.

I... I know where your parents are.


Jonah! Jonah!

You're lying.

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

I... I swear I'm not.

I'm not.


If you know something, tell me.

When you release me, I'll tell you.

- You don't know anything.
- I do. I do.

Please, no!


[Mia's screams fade]

[faintly] Jonah.

- Jonah!
- [grunts]

[no audible dialogue]

[faint] Jonah.

[normal] Jonah!

I remember something.

[over walkie-talkie] Shelley, please.

You should hear this.

SHELLEY: You don't know them.

You didn't stay with them.
Alex lied to us.

Eve could be lying as well.

That doesn't mean they've been hoarding.

They've had plenty of time
to gather food.

For all we know, they
could have raided the stores

- before we started looking.
- You don't know that.

I know that she came
and asked for board games,

and if that's her major concern,

then it's because she
isn't worried about food.

If they have more food,
they should share it with us.

- I can ask if...
- You think those bitches

are just gonna share it with you?

You may not like them,
but there's no reason...

You didn't hear what I heard.

They're liars, both of them.

I'm sorry about what happened to you,

but if you can't behave,
then just shut your mouth.

It's very simple.

You didn't have to do that.

[line crackles]

Nine meals from anarchy.


There's this theory

that we're always
just nine meals from anarchy.

Take away food, take away water,
nine missing meals later,

that's when people
start doing bad things.


You're not alone, okay?


Nathalie, I can't let you do this.

You don't have a choice.

Father Romanov and I decided together.

What if you're both wrong?

- What if it's...
- If Thomas is right,

then we'll die out there.

But if one of us is right,
if one of us survives,

then you will know who to follow.

Then that person can save you.

I would like a few moments
alone so I can pray.

Then we should begin.

I believe in you.

In the name of the Father, of the son,
and of the Holy Spirit, amen.

Be with me now, in this hour
of need, I pray to you.

In the name of the Father, of the son,
and of the Holy Spirit, amen.

Mrs. Raven?

Mrs. Raven, are you ready?

Maybe the Lord has changed her mind.

[suspenseful music]

[suspenseful organ music]

[wind blowing]

[horses neighing]

[hoofbeats walking]


[hoofbeats gallop]

By the divine power of God,

cast into hell Satan
and all the evil spirits...

- [neighs]
- who roam throughout the world

seeking the ruin of...


[horse snorts]


[screams stop]

You gotta let us in. Let us in!

Yeah, there... there's no
stronger door in the psych ward

than the one that guards
their precious medicine.

Come on! Hey!

Hey, what's your name?

What's your name?

Just tell me your name.

- Nash.
- Nash, listen to me.

You gotta let him go.

We'll take him out of here. I promise.

- I don't know. I... I... I...
- I need you to let him go.

- I can't let you do that.
- Please! He's just a kid.

I know him. He's just a kid.

No, look, this... this is
not how this works, okay?

The kid has to die.

[muffled shout]

I remember it now.

- [muffled grunting]
- WOMAN: Bird.

[Mia sobbing]

I'm in so much pain.

JONAH: They kept me locked up.

A woman... A woman came.


[Jonah gasps]

MIA: Please.

She... she started saying words to me.

- Bike.
- [grunting]

Random words.

[woman] Lamp.

I don't know why, but the words...

the words would take me
through the pain.


Listen to me!

Listen. Listen to me.

- When she spoke,
- [groaning]

I would feel the word
instead of the pain.

- [woman] Table.
- [grunting]

[woman] Orange.


And I got through it.

[woman] Pearl.


So will you.

- Feline.
- [sobs]

Just listen to me

- I can't...
- Listen to my voice.


Thank you.

You're very kind.

What happened out there?

We couldn't see you.

Nothing happened.

I just stood there with my eyes closed.

And everything happened.

I could hear him die,

and he was in so much pain.

But out there in the mist,
it all sounds different,

and it was beautiful.

And it was like the sound
of a strange bird

or a glacier breaking.

I felt it all.

I felt Nature take Romanov,

just like she took Link and Mikhail.

I felt her sensing me.

She knows I'm not a threat.

She knows I am her messenger.


No! Hey!

Nash, how does it work?

How does it work?

Tell me, how does it work?

Well, it... it... it travels, okay?

It... It travels from... from,
uh... from person to person.

And this is my fault.

Why? Why is it your fault?

Tell me why it's your fault.

The... The, uh... The nun at my school,

she showed it to me. Okay?

The... The evil, uh, was inside of her.

She asked me to beat it
out of her, and I did...

and I let it out.

[Adrian grunting]

I let it out.

KEVIN: Listen to me. Listen to me, Nash.

It is not in him.

- It is not inside Adrian.
- Y-Y-You can't see it,

because you didn't let it out,
okay? I did.

I did.

I have to fight it.

[Adrian yelling]

- No, no, no, no, no, no!
- Hey! Nash, no!

He's not evil! He's not the evil one!
I can... I can prove it.

Nash, I can prove it. I can prove it.
He's not the evil one.


Because I am.

[muffled grunting]

You're lying.

I'm not.

Then prove it.

Let me in, and I will.

[chuckling] Yeah. Yeah, you see, you see,

you are just like
all the rest of them, huh?

You try and trick me.

Look me in the eye.

Look me in the eye, Nash!

Look me in the eye, and tell me
you don't see evil.

I don't believe you.

All right, then, do it.

Do it!

Hurt him.

He's weak. He disgusts me.
I want to see him suffer.


What else?

What else do you want?

I want to find the boy
who raped my daughter.

And what will you do to him?

I want to... I want
to put him on his knees.

I want... I want to reach
inside him with my whole hand...

and I want to reach down his throat.

And then what?

I want to reach into his stomach
and pull out his intestines.

I want him to try to scream,

but he can't make a sound.

And I won't stop.

And I want him to be in pain forever.

I want him to suffer,

to regret...

to beg.

I want him to beg me.

And then I want him to learn
that there will be no salvation.

And I want to look him in
the eye when he realizes that.

Okay. You can come in.


It's all right.

I got you.

Come on.

You need a shower. You smell like shit.


Fuck you.


[heart beating]

All right, you... you walk in.
You go to the other side of the room.

[Adrian whimpering]

Let him go.

We don't have to do this.

What else is there to do
than to fight the evil?

What else is there in life?

- [bites]
- [screams]

[Nash chuckles]

It's in you.

It's really in you.


I'm gonna go find Bryan and Mia,
and then we're getting out of here.

You got a plan, Chief?

Didn't think so.

Looks like we're gonna die here.

Kyle, please.

What are you gonna say?

That we got a couple days' food left?

Who cares if it's two or three days?

It doesn't matter.

What if there's a reason
the mist is here?

Don't you think it's strange?

Everyone who's gone into
the mist has died, except her,

except Alex.

The mist didn't want her.

Shelley, we talked about this.

Something's wrong with them.

When did all this start?

It started when she lied,

when she lied about being raped.

I think we all need
to calm down, get some sleep.

I think we need to find a solution.

Unless you all want to die here.

You okay?

Are you?

Do you know what I thought of in there?

I had never held a guy's hand.

I always wanted to...

but you know how people are.

I thought he was gonna kill me,

so I promised myself,

if I survived, I would do that.

I would hold a guy's hand.

I would hold it...

walk down the street,

and not give a shit
about what anybody thought.

Who cares, right?


You guys coming?

I, um... I think I'm gonna stay here.

- What?
- I'll be, um... be safe here,

and it's close to my home,
so, um, after this is over,

I could go back to, um, normal.

Adrian, come on.

Adrian, let's go.

You sure?

Tyler, last chance.
