Help me, and I will help you find your son.

[yelling] Where are you?

This is manic.

Do you know what? Get out.

Leave me alone. Get out!

You make it really goddamn hard to love you.

Have you had a dream recently where you were trapped in a room and you couldn't get out?

That's Bill's tech.

With it, he can make the walls of our dreams absolute or dissolve them entirely.

What do they want?

They want us to be together.

How?

The Boy in the flier.

He can bring me back.

Who is he?

The key to everything.

The one that's gonna teach us we're all dreaming the same dream.

How'd you build this?

Your mother built it for us.

The room is designed to see into Tess's dreams.

When you find The Boy, push the button.

There's a woman. She was taken.

The people holding her, they want to unleash the same kind of anarchy on humanity that your dreams have unleashed on you.

How?

The Boy.

He's a very special boy.

Huge untapped power.

Find The Boy.

[dramatic music]

The Boy can save us both.

Wars have two sides.

Those who don't pick one get smashed in the middle.

And as the storms approached and the armies gathered, the wisest man in the world and the wisest woman in the world stood on the ridge, holding hands.

And he said, "Run away with me."

"Then we'll be together."
