04x09 - SHTF

You just bailed.

sh1t was getting weird that crib, us playing house.

Then why did you even come to my place?

Maybe I knew you'd open the door.

Can't do this.

Is that you want me to tell Livengood?

I don't care what you tell him.

Would Deran give all this up for you?

Yeah, you want to get dirt on this guy.

- Blackmail.

- I don't like kids.

Well, what about the one in your belly?

You tell Colin yet?

There's this big concert.

We could hit the acts.

We could hit their equipment.

There's money, jewelry.

[SIREN WAILING]

Tell your nephew I said hi.

Who knew to hit that ambulance?

Somebody's been watching us.

And you and I both know who it is.

What are you gonna do about it?

[GUNSHOT]

I'm not gonna do it for you.

She's your problem to deal with.

[GUNSHOT]

She stares deeply Locked inside me Burnin' brightly One they know that I cannot take Waitin' for it all to begin Every night now, they'll win Come and meet my black hole Got a big black hole Got a big black hole I've got a big black hole I've got a big black, big black hole Got a big black hole inside of me Got a

[WATER LAPPING]

Cranked up the heat.

It's like 90.

You're gonna blow a fuse.

[LAUGHS]

You used to be fun, you know?

When was I fun?

[CHUCKLES]

Get in.

Put your feet in, at least.

[SIGHS]

Remember eighth grade?

Jonathan Peters threw a basketball at my stomach, knocked the wind out of me?

You held him under the water until he scratched you so hard your arm started bleeding?

Yeah, I remember.

I spent the rest of that party in the bathroom with Julia.

[LAUGHS]

Yeah.

That was the first time she did acid, right?

She thought she was gonna die.

Wouldn't stop crying.

[LAUGHS]

We should have a party.

Anything from J?

No, not for a couple hours.

I bet he feels bad.

His job you all got hurt.

Smart, though.

You can teach him.

Teach him what?

Whatever you need.

You'll let him stay, right?

When Smurf's gone?

Have you tried to call her again?

She's not answering.

What?

Maybe she's not coming back?

Why would you say that?

She might not want you guys to see her at the end.

Do you think it's time to tell your brothers?

I mean, if she's gone That means you're in charge, right?

You're the oldest.

I wanna watch TV.

You're not going to prison.

I might.

I'm gonna deal with Livengood.

Even if you get him to change his mind, I'm still gonna do a year, maybe two.

This is happening whether we like it or not.

And it's not your fault.

I did this.

I just got to get my head around it.

I'll ask around, I'll see who the best lawyers are.

Maybe No.

That's gonna look like I've got information that you're trying to protect.

I'm gonna plead out, use a public defender, hope that Livengood changes his mind.

[CELLPHONE DINGS]

It's J.

He wants to have a meeting tonight.

It's fine.

Go.

I'm gonna smoke a joint, see if it knocks me out.

Eh, screw it.

I can't sleep anyway.

[PHONE CLATTERS]

I'm gonna protect you inside.

If it comes to that.

Which it won't, 'cause Livengood's gonna change his mind.

Hey, Deran?

Not his kids, okay?

[GATE CLANGS]

[SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY]

- That feel okay?

- Yeah, that's alright.

Hey.

- Hey, Deran.

- [CLEARS THROAT]

I'm gonna take a shower.

What's going on with you guys?

What do you mean?

- Are you, like

- We're friends.

Okay.

How's your shoulder?

Sucks.

How you doing?

You alright?

[GATE CLANGS, CREAKS]

Where's Craig?

I don't know.

He hasn't been picking up my phone calls.

There it is.

How'd you get this?

There's this girl that I've been hanging out with.

She must've seen me with cash, overheard a couple phone calls.

I walked in on her a couple of weeks ago with this guy.

They must've followed me, figured out that we were hitting the festival.

I found her.

I got it back.

You just asked for it back, and she gave it to you?

I talked to her.

You talked to her?

What do you - What do you mean, you talked to her?

- You don't need to worry about it.

- What does that mean, J?

- You don't need to worry about it!

We don't have to worry about it?

We almost die because of this person, and we don't have to worry about it?

We got to watch our back every time we pull a job?

Is that what's gonna happen now?

She's not gonna bother us anymore.

Alright, I messed up.

I'm owning it.

Okay, I'll take a loss on the next few jobs to make up for the money we lost on the broken soundboards.

What about Pete?

Do we have a problem with Pete now?

J's girlfriend is a Trujillo.

Isn't that right, J?

Pete didn't know.

Pete had no idea.

- You sure about that?

- Yes, I'm sure.

- You sure?

- Yes.

It's over.

Okay?

I promise.

Your girlfriend kidnap Smurf, too?

Deran, I don't know where Smurf is.

You don't know where Smurf is?

Her little errand boy doesn't know where Smurf is.

But you know where that was.

I'm getting a beer.

Hold up.

Is there anything else?

- Like what?

- Anything you left out.

No.

Your girlfriend.

You, uh

- You talked to her.

- And I talked to Pete.

He doesn't want to jeopardize Smurf's business.

So now you're on the hook with Pete?

I paid him.

That's gonna come out of my cut.

This won't happen again.

No, it won't.

'Cause if it does, you don't get another chance.

[GRUNTS]

[SIGHS]

What's up?

Smurf has cancer.

What are you talking about?

Couple of weeks ago, she fell.

She hit her head.

I took her to the hospital, and she made the doctor tell me that she was sick.

Jesus.

[SIGHING]

Yeah.

Do you know where she is?

No.

Is she coming back?

I don't know, man.

You really think she'd just leave for good like that?

You know, no goodbyes?

Nothing?

It's Smurf.

Who knows?

Oh, sorry I'm late.

[GRUNTS]

What now?

[BIG BROTHER AND THE HOLDING COMPANY'S "HOUSE ON FIRE"]

Feel your hands on every corner But they seem so far away Could it be a love you offer?

Dream of her in my bed Locked inside my own head

[VEHICLE APPROACHING]

[ENGINE SHUTS OFF]

Janine?

I like these six.

Can you get me more?

Many as you want.

Got 20 in the cellar.

You want more, I get you more.

What are you doing out here?

Reminiscing about the good old days.

Come on.

Odin made supper.

- [ENGINE SHUTS OFF]

- Why are we stopping?

[GOATS BLEATING]

What's going on?

My brother's kind of strange.

Yeah?

Strange as you?

[LAUGHS]

I They live off the land.

They grow their own food, chickens, goats, a little grass.

So?

They're hippies.

Not exactly.

Well, I like chickens.

When was the last time you saw him?

A year ago.

When we buried my dad.

[ENGINE STARTS]

[ENGINE SHUTS OFF, ROOSTER CROWING]

- Hey.

- How was the drive?

It was fine.

Yeah.

Hey.

You got big!

How old are you now?

- Six.

- Six?

All right, let's see you make a muscle.

Let me check.

Ooh!

That's good.

What's up?

How's it going, Jeremy?

Still shy?

Go in and play, boys.

Go on.

Hey, Laney.

- Hi.

- That David?

He looks just like you.

- Janine.

- Oh, yeah.

- Hi.

- Nice to meet you.

- Hi.

Janine.

- Janine.

Hi.

- How you doing?

- Good.

Nice to meet you.

Yeah.

[LAUGHS]

[CHUCKLES]

You did good, man.

Mm?

Thank you.

You guys hungry?

- Yeah.

Yeah.

- Yeah.

Laney made stew.

- Yeah.

- Thank you.

[BANGING]

What are they building?

Quarantine shed.

Someone sick?

Not yet.

Mm.

You put razor wire around the whole property.

After Laney died.

Only way in and out is the gate.

Someone out to get you, Jed?

Whole damn human race will be when the sh1t hits the fan.

Nobody's prepared for what's coming.

What do you think it's gonna be?

Natural disaster?

Nuclear apocalypse?

Or maybe just some good, old-fashioned race riots?

All the above.

Where'd you get these?

From a reputable seller.

That's it?

I'm just supposed to trust you?

We've worked this way for years.

[BOTTLE CLINKS]

You gonna show me my merchandise?

J, wake up.

[GROANS]

Where's Pope?

He's asleep.

They They were up late.

He told your uncles.

They know that Smurf is sick.

- [SIGHS]

- W-We got to move fast.

Pope thinks that she might already be dead.

He said that?

He thinks that she either killed herself or she's on some kind of last bender somewhere.

Do you think he could be right?

I don't know.

Maybe.

If she is dead, we got to get our hands on that will before the others, make sure you're in it.

I heard them out by the pool till almost 3:00.

Where were you?

Sleeping.

Okay.

Well, don't worry about Pope.

I can calm him down.

Well, he told me that your job went south.

I know they're pissed at you, but it'll pass.

He told you about the job?

Yeah.

He trusts me.

It's good.

He'll be in charge now that Smurf is gone.

I'll make sure he takes care of you.

We'll talk later.

[ENGINE SHUTS OFF]

What's up with the new ride?

Scout needed a new transmission.

You alright?

Mm.

Just not buying it, man.

What?

Cancer?

It's bullshit.

Pope said the doctor told him, so It was metastasized and sh1t.

It was everywhere.

Yeah, but she could've just hired some dude

- to tell him that.

- Why would she do that?

It's Smurf.

Why does she do anything?

Just to test him, maybe, or see if he can keep a secret or some sh1t.

I don't know, man.

Cancer?

I mean That just doesn't take out Smurf, you know?

Yeah, well, I hate to break it to you, but cancer kills people every single day, man.

What, so you think if she's actually dying, she'd just she'd just leave us here?

Yeah, I do.

Smurf isn't thinking about any of us right now, okay?

Look, I need you to help me with something today.

Alright.

I got to hurt somebody.

Hurt them how?

Just rough them up a little bit, nothing crazy.

- Just enough to send a message.

- What's the message?

No, what is it, man?

I just need you to keep the car running while I'm in there and get me out of there fast when I'm done.

Alright?

So the Scout doesn't need a new transmission.

Who is it?

You gonna help me or what?

Alright.

Alright.

Let's go.

Where you headed?

I have work in a couple hours.

I was gonna run some errands.

Do you want to take a drive?

Where?

I've had the GPS on Smurf for a while.

She's sick.

Maybe she went to go and see her lawyer about her will.

[CHUCKLES]

You warming up to me, J?

Are you coming?

Yeah.

[ENGINE STARTS]

You gonna do it here?

Nah.

I'm gonna wait till he leaves, follow him.

Get him somewhere more secluded.

He armed?

Yeah.

Well, you're gonna have to take him by surprise, then.

Yeah, I know.

What are you gonna use?

I got a bat in the back.

You should take your gun.

Just in case, you know.

I know.

Alright.

That's him.

Let's do this.

[ENGINE STARTS]

Odin can handle a compound bow, hit a target from 100 feet.

I took him out with me last weekend.

He almost got a buck.

Wow.

That's impressive.

And Jeremy can pull the trigger on my pistol.

- He's not even scared of the recoil.

- Oh.

Laney's all worried about him, but I told her, he's got to learn to shoot.

This is really good.

- Mm.

- Thank you.

Vegetables are all from the garden.

The boys harvest them.

We're canning everything we don't use.

What's the hole out in the field?

Are you guys building something?

A bunker.

What for?

Jed's stockpiling gold.

Yeah, you watch.

I'm right.

Uh, why gold?

Eh, here we go.

- Currency's got to be four things, right?

- Mm-hmm.

One, it's got to be worth something to enough people to be meaningful.

Two, you got to be able to divide it up evenly.

Gold is malleable.

You can break it into smaller pieces.

Three, it's got to be uniform.

That's why gems aren't good currency, 'cause nobody can agree on the quality.

But gold is gold.

Last, it's got to be rare.

The money in your pocket, the money Colin steals from the banks, the money he would kill for that money is worthless.

It's not even money.

It's It's paper.

You could set it on fire, watch it burn.

I will survive when the world goes pear-shaped.

Will you?

[UTENSILS CLINKING]

How much gold do you need when the sh1t hits the fan?

Least a million.

How much do you got?

Wouldn't you like to know?

[BOTH LAUGH]

- Anyone want dessert?

- We're not done.

Sorry.

Eat.

I'm finished.

No.

You're not.

[UTENSILS CLINKING]

[SWITCH CLICKS]

Like what you see?

Everything wiped?

Everything.

What's back there, baby?

More of the same.

Here they are.

[ENGINE SHUTS OFF]

[CAR HONKS, LOCKS CLICK]

That's a cop bar.

Can't hit him here.

There's an alley behind the bar.

I can hit him there.

It'll be quick.

We can get out of here fast.

Okay?

There's cops crawling everywhere, man.

Look, where's he work?

Maybe we can just hit him there.

- No, we can't.

- Why not?

Because we just can't.

He's got a routine.

He comes here.

It's either here or his gym, and there's too many cameras at the gym.

So then we just run him off the road someplace we can control.

No.

I've been following him, man.

He's got a specific route that he takes.

It's side streets through town, and then he ends up here.

There's nowhere else I could do it where there wouldn't be a hundred witnesses.

So then we just wait till he mixes it up, then.

Nah.

We can't wait.

It's got to be now.

What the hell is up with you, man?

This guy a cop?

Is that why we can't hit him at work?

Huh?

Jesus, Deran.

A cop?

What's going on?

Has he has he got something on you, or what?

Because I'm sitting outside a goddamn cop bar.

I mean, are you trying to go to prison?

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

Nah.

You know what?

- [SEAT BELT CLICKS]

- I'm out, bro.

It's all you.

- [CAR DOOR CLOSES]


- Craig.

- Craig, come on.

- No.

Craig!

Craig, come on.

No way, man!

I'm not gonna keep the car running while you take a bat to some cop.

Look, you want to hurt a cop?

You got to tell me why.

Hey, keep your voice down.

You know, here I am thinking that you trust me.

Yeah, Smurf's got cancer, but at least Deran's got my back, because I got his.

He needs my help, I'm here.

He can count on me.

But you?

You don't trust me.

You just think I'm too stupid to ask a question.

It's bullshit.

Smurf came here?

That's what the GPS says.

Well, which one?

It's not that specific, but it's this general area.

Do you remember this neighborhood?

No.

Your mom and I used to hang out down here.

I don't think there are any lawyer's offices.

Maybe she came to meet someone.

MAN: You looking for weed or something?

She's got plenty of people on the payroll that she doesn't want us to know about.

I had to pay some of them while she was in jail.

She trusted you with a lot when she was inside, huh, J?

Yeah.

She knew I was the easiest to control.

You weren't that easy to control when you were a kid.

Julia always had her hands full.

I'm hungry.

Want to get tacos?

Place looks good.

You okay?

One of the cooks there used to sell H.

Your mom and I used to score there all the time.

[SIGHS]

We could go somewhere else.

It's fine.

The tacos are good.

Craig.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

The hell do you want?

You weren't picking up your phone.

And?

Renn was passed out in the bathroom when I came home from work, bleeding, so I called an ambulance.

She's at the hospital.

A'ight, here's your change.

- Thank you.

- This was you.

Alright.

Thank you.

Hey, don't be a stranger, alright?

[SIGHS]

The sh1t I used to do for that guy to get high.

[LAUGHS]

Here's your change.

You gave me too much.

You sure you're okay?

Kind of feels good.

Knowing I could score, choosing not to.

And I'll I'll catch a meeting later.

You seem different.

[CHUCKLES]

If I was an asshole before, I'm sorry.

It's alright.

I deserve it.

No, you don't.

I guess I just wanted to believe that people can't change, because my mom didn't.

She tried.

She really did.

If you like living with the Codys, I won't judge.

Big step up from shitholes like this.

When I first got there, I barely slept.

I'd stay up all night thinking of ways to kill Smurf.

[CHUCKLES]

She's hard to like.

Then I ran the business for a while when she was in jail.

I liked it, and I was good at it.

So, what?

You think you're gonna take over when Smurf's gone?

Keys to the kingdom?

Maybe.

You like Pope.

Well, we get each other.

Is this okay?

I didn't know you smoked.

If you don't want me to, I can just Just a little weed.

I'll live.

You gave me my first beer.

Remember?

[SCOFFS]

I did?

Yeah.

I was like 5 or 6.

You were super high.

I asked you for one, and you just gave it to me.

No questions asked.

Great.

[CHUCKLES]

But you also taught me how to tie my shoelaces.

That was big of me.

Whatever Smurf was doing around here, she wasn't looking for a lawyer.

[CHUCKLES]

I'm gonna go back to the house, look through her taxes and sh1t.

Maybe find an address.

You want a lift?

No, I'm okay.

I think I'll walk.

Alright.

See you later.

[WATER SPLASHING]

Jesus.

What are you doing with my brother?

What?

Beautiful girl like you.

You could do better.

[DOOR CLOSES]

Is Jed always like that?

Like what?

His wife is afraid of him.

Our dad would kick the sh1t out of us.

And our mom.

He was a real asshole.

He'd get off on scaring us.

And Jed got the worst of it.

Hey.

You're nothing like him.

[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS]

Lena.

You good?

- Mm-hmm.

- You okay?

Mm-hmm.

You like this ballet class?

How How's the teacher?

You like her?

Mm-hmm.

That's good.

That's really good.

Lena!

Bella's looking for you with the other girls, okay?

Be right there.

Go on.

You can't just show up out of nowhere.

Her grandmother's sick.

My mom.

I just I just needed to see her.

I'm sorry.

Look, we we can schedule something if you want to see her.

You gave Lena a good life.

She's happy with us.

Please.

Bye, Lena.

[ROCK MUSIC PLAYS]

Deran.

Detective Pearce.

Do you, uh, have someplace we can talk?

It's happy hour.

We can do it here.

You know who I am?

Yeah.

Good.

I'm sorry about Benito.

Who?

Ox.

He was a friend of yours, right?

Yeah.

When we were kids.

Something happen?

Ah, his body turned up in a landfill in Tijuana.

Bled out from a gunshot wound.

Jesus.

I'm sorry to hear that.

Yeah, I haven't heard from him in a long time.

You seen Colby Bennett?

He was a friend of yours, too, right?

Yeah.

Oceanside's a pretty small town.

We were looking at Mr.

Bennett for Ox's murder.

They did some petty crimes together breaking and entering, stupid sh1t.

Then Bennett went missing.

You know anything about that?

I don't really know what you're trying to ask me, but I got a lot of sh1t to do, so You ever want to talk about your mother or Pope, I'll see what I can do about your file.

[CHUCKLING]

It's getting pretty thick.

Or maybe you want to help out your boyfriend.

Adrian's gotten himself in a bit of trouble, but I think you know that.

You want to talk about your family, I'll see what I can do about Adrian.

This place is nice.

[DOOR OPENS]

[DOOR CLOSES]

- Hey.

- Hi.

You okay?

I've been better.

[CHUCKLES LIGHTLY]

Well, you scared the sh1t out of us.

I know.

I'm sorry.

How's the kid?

Big.

Yeah?

Almost 11 pounds.

Wow.

I think he's yours.

It's messed up I don't know, but I think he's yours.

I-I don't want anything.

I just I thought you should know.

- Craig?

- Yeah?

You okay?

Yeah.

You're my big brother!

All you do is talk tough!

- At least I'm not scared!

[DISHES CLINKING, BANGING]

Smurf.

Hey, baby.

You weren't answering your phone.

I thought you might be dead.

Sorry to disappoint.

Where were you?

I had some things to take care of.

I told the guys you were sick.

They had a right to know.

I want you to get everybody here in an hour.

I have a job for us.

- Job?

- Mm.

And this time, I will be joining you.

You boys have been having all the fun for way too long.

Oh, and baby?

Would you please stay out of my bedroom?
