01x10 - Prey

Woman: Previously, on "Freakish"...

Stay strong.

Good luck, man.

Let's do it.

John Collins. Rescue and Recovery.

We leave in five minutes.

Both: [laugh, exhale]

We have a vaccine.

All of you happen to believe a man who has a suitcase full of shots which are all poison.

How long have we been out?

Couple minutes, I think.

What does he want from us?

Just a pinch.


[suspenseful music]


I can't break free.

I know how to do this.


I guess... you saw that in a movie once.


I'm not a fan of needles.

Nobody is.

Something wrong?



Why did you do that?

It's not a vaccine.

It's a poison. He's here to kill us.

It's a poison?

[tense music]

♪ ♪

Two aspirin would kill a guinea pig.

So could a shot of vodka.

Or a cup of mouthwash.

I didn't give it even close to the full dosage.

What did you put in my body?

A vaccine. To protect you.

How do you feel?


I mean, my stomach's a little weird, but...

I think it's just nerves.

He tied me up.

Because you and your friends blew up the chemical plant.

But why did you knock me out?


It's pretty simple.

You're saying this is a vaccine, right?

Well, that means you wouldn't mind getting, now, would you?

[tense music]

♪ ♪




Why are you trying to kill us?

I'm doin' my job.

It's because we're witnesses to the horror show going on out there.

All I know is... your friend doesn't have to die.

What's in the syringe? What kind of poison is it?

I don't know.


Her only chance is getting medical attention.

I can radio for help.


Right after you call for more people to come kill us.

Then send me to my vehicle.

I have an extra suit. I can get her outta here.

You'll go get it and come back, just to be nice?

She'll die if you don't trust me.

She's dying because we did trust you.

Yeah, well, she's not dying alone.

Your girlfriend's dying.

Shouldn't you be spending her last moments on earth with her?

How are you feeling?

The same as 30 seconds ago.

Not even like a headache?

Oddly enough, I'm getting one now.

I just don't know how you can think about anything else.

Right now, I feel fine.

Maybe Barrett was wrong.


Barrett's not usually wrong.

Are you trying to make me feel bad?

No! Of course not.

I'm just worried.

Well, I'm not.

I'm not thinking about dying at all.

I'm not... wondering if it hurts or if I could have done more while I was alive or if anyone's gonna think about me after I'm gone, I...

I'm not wondering what it's like.

One minute you are, and the next... you just aren't.

Collins didn't bring much with him.

[ominous music]

Let's make sure he doesn't get this.


What's that?

Proof he's not with the government.

Well, that makes more sense, at least.

He works for the company that made this mess.

I wonder how many others like him are out there.

[tense music]

♪ ♪

I should thank you for injecting me.

There are a million ways to die in this mess.

Most are pretty awful.

I'll get a bloody nose, heart'll slow down.

It'll be harder to breathe, and I'll feel like I'm drowning.

But you'll see it with your girlfriend soon enough.

Is that right?


You did a sh1t job of protecting her.

That's about all you're good for around here, right?

And you failed.


That poison doesn't have to be the way you die.

But it is gonna be the way she dies.

And her baby, too.

Doesn't look like the bullet hit anything crucial.

Thank God.


How you feeling?

I'm fine.

You're lucky to be alive.

I don't feel lucky. He got the gun.

Yeah, but he didn't get the suit.

And he can't leave without it.

We're like sitting ducks in this office.

He's only got four bullets left.

You checked?

Yeah. [grunts]

Well done.

Four bullets can still do some damage.

We're a much harder target if we're not all together.

I can get water.

Be careful.

I think she's more worried than you are.

She does not wanna be left behind.

None of us do.

[voice breaking] I don't wanna leave you.

[somber music]

It feels so cruel... that the world would give us something we never expected... and then take it away before we've had any real time together.

Well... the way I see it is... all we've had is real time together.

That's not what I mean.

Just let me finish.

Look, maybe we haven't had a lotta time, but the time that we have had, it's been real.

And it's been honest.
