01x08 - Blood Relations

Post by bunniefuu »

Previously on "South of Hell"...

Abigail, the next time you lay a finger on my brother, I'll k*ll you and me both.

Reverend Elijah Bledsoe.

You took that curse of the demon, you turned it into a gift.

Where did you get this?

I was there when the police raided your father's compound.



Got anything for me?

You still owe me for the last getgo.

I know where to get the money.

Five-digit items are upstairs.

Don't you want to see the goods?

Think you remember my daughter.

The doctors can't cure her. Only you.

You're not Mommy.

[both growling]

Mine now!

Enos is back.

Give your daddy a hug.

His spirit could be inside anybody.

Reminds me of Sangolo.

That's where the Order of Everlasting went.

I've tried ruling in hell.

It isn't all it's cracked up to be.

[growling indistinctly]

Miss Genie Pool, with all that anger, you're making me swoon.

What about Enos?

When that son of a bitch shows his face, I'll make him wish he stayed in hell.

You used to sit outside with me at night, taught me the constellations.


Think about Grace.

She's rare and she needs to be protected.

I'm not afraid of Enos.

If you knew him, you would be!

So we're clear, David's mine.

I don't mean to cause any trouble.

Girls like you never do.

What's that?

David, the Candy Man's here!

k*lling Bledsoe is your initiation back to the Order of Everlasting.




What is that power she has?

She has a spirit inside her you cannot imagine.

I'm ready to spend some time with someone.

I want to, but I'm just not ready yet.

Crazy things are happening to me.

I need to know the truth about my mother.

Grace, you are the most perfect thing I have ever seen.

Stay away from David.

I think I'm in love with her.

You just made the biggest mistake.

The rune is the mark of an angel.

Grace is an angel.

Maria's strong enough to defeat Enos.

She's not.

We need both of them.

Devil and the angel to stop Enos.

What is this place?

You're in Purgatory.

Think of this place as a hole in the room.

I love her.

I know you do.

Who do you think you're protecting?

All of you.

When I met Elijah, I was already married.


You three are the only ones that can stop him!

The Trinity, blood of my blood!

Come give Mommy a kiss.

There's something you need to know.

And this message, Davie, is just for you.

You, sir.

[cheers and applause]

I have a feeling he's going to do great things.

Take life now!

Take life now!

All chanting: Take life now! Take life now!

Mom said something about Trinity.

Angel, demon.

So what's David?

He's human.

Promise me you won't let me die if I do this for you.

Enos wants to make a deal.

If I go back now, it's a death sentence.

What if Enos can make all that go away?

Wipe the record clean.

A demon?


You can control her?


Where's this retreat supposed to happen?

Where do you think?

Sangolo's where it all started, and that's where it's gonna end.

If you got trouble coming, I wanna be there when it happens.

As you enter the retreat, you may become separated from the parties you've arrived with.

Where'd everyone go? [screams]

Open this door!

What's so important on the other side?

My daughter.

All: Take life now!

I have to find David and Grace.

Don't you remember those early days at Everlasting?

Snap out of it.




Don't touch her!



[indistinct chanting]

What have you done?

The same thing you would have done if you had the chance.

We're finally going to be rid of each other.

This isn't who I want to be.

Take it back!

This bus is going straight to Purgatory.

I used to be an old friend of your boss.

Can you save my daughter?

Why should I?

I'll give you my soul.

30 minutes to try to save her, and I'll serve you and Enos in hell till the end of time.

Wasn't Dusty just a little too good to be true?

Welcome home.


David: All this time, the devil was closer than Maria ever imagined.

We'd been living right next door to hell, and now she'd played right into his hands, the same as me.

The darkness our father put inside me, clouding my soul and corrupting my words.

There was no point in fighting it any more.

The devil always wins.

It breaks my heart to see anybody so unhappy, so lost.


This is my family.

My precious daughter, Maria, yes.

She has a darkness within her.

A cancer of the soul.

And it's holding her back from reaching her full potential.


But we are here to rip that darkness right out of my daughter!

To set her free, to make her whole again.

What have you done?


Darling, don't be so tedious and accept the inevitable.

You see that, folks?

My Maria is so full of shame she can't even look at herself.

She needs our help, and I can feel the will to change pulsing out of every one of you.

Oh, no.

No, no.

Not you too.

Not you too. David, please.

It's for the best, Mar.


Please don't make this any harder than it has to be.

You know I hate seeing you upset.


That's all right, princess.

You just let it all go.


It's what demons do.

David: Father was rebuilding his order.

But first, he needed more followers to be hosts for his new army.

What if the world stopped demanding and started listening to your demands?

What if other people's mistakes didn't become your problems?

What if there was a way to cut through all the noise in your life and find perfect peace and clarity?

Now you can.

Let A&O cut through the noise and help you.

Take life now!

Self-acceptance, personal liberation, sexual expression...

That's right.

You ladies want drinks?

I'll have another.

Be careful.

Sweetmouth doesn't run tabs.

Well, I'm good for it.

I'm good for everything.


Oh, David Abascal, look at you.

Oh, you know, I was ready to tear your eyes out when you first walked through that door.

Baby, I deserved it for trying to walk out on a gorgeous creature like you.

I like having my old baby back.

Does this look like the old David to you?

Mm, no, it doesn't.

What are you on, coke? Addy?

No, no, no, no, darling, you got it all wrong.

Have you heard about this A&O thing?

What is that, one of those Tony Robbins, self-help kinda things?

I know, sounds like bullshit, right?

But I'm telling you, it made a brand-new man outta me.

I do what I want, take what I want, and I've never felt better.

Oh, you make that sound hot.

I could use a little of that to help get our business back together.

'Cause Sweetmouth's been a little lacking since his run-in with the Sons.

Where is my good friend?

Wholesalers have been getting cute with our supply.

Sometimes I swear we may as well be working retail.

But what's stopping you from getting your very own piece of the action?

You're the brains. You don't need Sweetmouth.

He'd k*ll me.

You don't have to be afraid of him anymore.

You don't have to be afraid of anything.

That's the whole point. Just try it.

A&O has a big retreat going on right now, I'm telling you.

I am tired of being under my daddy's thumb.

Or Sweetmouth's thumb.

We combine our full potential, there's nothing we can't do or have.

Oh, I knew from that first moment I saw you robbing my house, I loved you.

Yeah, well, come on, ladies.

What do you say?



She's finally gone, Mar.

You don't need Abigail anymore, and we're home now.

The family is coming back together.

Don't touch me.

Please, Mar.

How are you, princess?

You son of a bitch, I'll k*ll you!

Come here.


Not without Abigail, you can't.

David, why don't you go check on our new recruits?

I think Mariah and I need a little daddy/daughter time.

[thunder rumbling]

You're willful, you always were, and there's just no pleasing you.

First, you're mad about having a demon.

Then you're mad when I get rid of her.

Say you want a nice guy who will accept you and love you for what you are...

And now you want to k*ll me?

Who are you really?

I told you, the w*r made me do things.

Made me hurt people, not just the enemy.

The MPs decided to make an example out of me.

My sentence was death, so I prayed to whoever was listening and made a deal.

Enos's spirit needed a new body, a host.

You bastard.

You felt loved.

How many people are lucky enough to ever really have that?

I believed you. I didn't know.

'Cause you didn't want to know.

Now, be honest.

Wasn't Dusty just a little too good to be true?

A decorated ex-Marine, cool car, and I know how to cook?

I make a mean fish stew.

You coming on to me?

I always knew where you were, but you never bothered to ask why.

I'm coming with you.

You believed it because you wanted to.

But don't feel bad, princess.

You know what they say.

Girls always wind up marrying their father.

Get away from me!

Come on, open your heart.


Where are you going, Maria? You can't leave.

You're on an island.

Why don't you just k*ll me?

I would never k*ll you or David.

Like I told you, this is about love.

I want my family back again.

What about Grace?

And Bledsoe?

Your Uncle Elijah and your half-sister, they're... How shall I say this?

They're extended family.

Like I said, I would never spill the blood of my blood, and I'm a man of my word.

Just a glass.

What is this place?

Think of it as a waiting room.

Waiting for what?

For Enos to make me his queen.

Oh, poor, poor Abigail.

I was just telling Maria that souls without a body are worthless, and so are you.

What are you talking about?

Do you really think I care more about you than my own daughter?

My own flesh and blood?

I just needed you out of Maria so I could make room inside her for something bigger.

That wasn't the deal.

Here's the deal, Abby!

Later tonight, I'm going to consume you.

Just like you've devoured so many of your own brothers and sisters, you traitorous vamp.

I will absorb her strength, and I will find a new demon for you, one that knows how to listen.


Can you even begin to imagine the power?

It's enough to blow open the gates of hell and lead my army through.

I'll k*ll myself before I let that happen.

I couldn't recommend that.

Didn't work out too well for your mother.

You... you...


Maria, please, you have to get me out of here!

Maria! Maria, please!

[door closes]


The Alphas will see you shortly, and they will help you get ready for tonight.

Now try to be a good girl.

I hate you!

Oh, hate is just love gone bad, and bad is just good gone wild.
