That's a shell casing from a r*fle.

Keep looking for stansbury!

You heard me!

Do it.

Let's go.

Caroline: Wonder where they put the batteries in this thing.

I also hear it makes a hell of a milkshake.

What's going on with you?



You've been jumping out of your skin all morning.

And these last few weeks...

I don't know where you are.

What's happening?

Talk to me.



There's been an, uh...

..An incident.

And it's...

It's bad.

It's real bad.

And i'm gonna have to...

I'm gonna have to make a choice.

Make a-a choice?

What are you talking about?

Between me or her.


What did you do, stephen?

I'm gonna mess up our kid.

I'm just a piece of shit like my dad.

No, you're not.

You're not!

You say that, but...

You don't know what you're talking about 'cause...

...You don't know what i did.

Whatever happened...

Doesn't matter.

Not now.

We're having a child.

There's nothing more to say.

Hey, you guys!

How are we doing today?



How's your ph balance?

Uh, uh, it's a 6.

Ready to meet your baby?



We're excited.

Right, babe?


This is the best part.

I mean, besides actually having your baby.

You're gonna get a real kick out of it.

Let's take a listen first.

What is that?

Your little girl's heartbeat.

It's a girl?

Congratulations, you two.

Come on, holder, you dumb prick.


Deputy commissioner brandt's ready to see you now.


detective linden.

Let me in!

Let me in!

Let me...

What happened?

They tried to...

they tried to k*ll me.

They were chasing me, and...

and then...

And they...

they sh*t at me...

Who sh*t at you?

They sh*t at me.


And lincoln, in the woods.

They told me to k*ll her!

They wanted me to k*ll her!

k*ll who?

My mom!

They're crazy.

They kept screaming, "k*ll, k*ll, k*ll!" Okay, kyle, i need you to breathe.

I need you to calm down and breathe.

They put that g*n in my room!

They knew where all the bodies were on the floor.

And then she had the g*n.

Colonel rayne had the g*n.

They all did it together!

They did it together!

Oh, god!

I don't want to remember!

I don't want to remember!

I don't want to remember!

It's okay.

You don't have to, kyle.

You don't have to.

You're okay.

You're gonna be okay.

Nobody's gonna hurt you.

I promise.

nobody's gonna hurt you.

You're okay.

You're okay.

i want to go home!

I know.

I know.


I want that search warrant issued right now.

You call me as soon as you get it from the judge, Or i'm going to the d.A.


Where are you going?

I just have to go out for a little while.

You're safe here on the island.

Nobody knows you're here.

Kyle: It's so green.

It's like it's not even real.

Kyle: Like what eden must have been like.

And that's the tree of life.

No one is going to find you here, kyle.

Is that why you're here?

So no one will find you?

You should get some sleep.



I'm heading out now.

I can't find knopf, fielding, or stansbury anywhere, ma'am.

I checked the barracks again and all the classrooms.

Keep looking.

They probably left campus, ma'am.

I don't want to see your face again until you find them.

Am i making myself clear, cadet?!

Where were you?

What were you doing?

Answer me!

He knows.


He remembers everything!

That's not possible.

We tested him!

We tried to see if he'd remember, and he did!

You know, lincoln was right all along.

It was just a matter of time before he remembered.

We should've k*lled him as soon as he came back here.

You need to watch your tone with me, cadet fielding.

f*ck that cadet bullshit.

Don't talk to her like that!

Why are you defending her?

She didn't care about us.

She never did.

She knew kyle would remember and didn't give a f*ck.

I say we do her.

Right here.

Right now.

Let's blow the bitch away.

What did you do to kyle?

Answer me!

You said if i trusted you, everything would be okay.

But it's not.

None of this is okay!

How dare you talk to me about trust?

You stole my vehicle to go to that house.

You took a w*apon there.

And then, when it was all over, You came to me to fix what you did.

You said we were a family!

But you're a liar!

You just lied!

You only care about him!

I fixed it all...

for all of you!

What more do you want?

You would have gone to prison if i hadn't...


It was all bullshit!

You used me.

You didn't care about me.

All you cared about was him.

Now you f*cking tell me why!


I will do no such thing.

Who do you think you're talking to?

Now you tell me What you did to cadet stansbury.


He got away.

Lincoln: You're glad?

He's going to the cops, And he's gonna tell them everything!

We're going to prison!

Not if we stick to the plan.

f*ck you...

And f*ck your plan.

A.J., let's get out of here.

Where are you going?

Don't you walk away from me!

Sir, ma'am, you're not permitted...

Get out of our way.

officer: Oh!


Where'd the shots come from?!

In there!

Get out of here!




Put the g*n down!

Drop your w*apon!

Drop your w*apon!

Get on the ground!

Drop your w*apon!

Man: Check 'em!

Man: They're gone.

Jesus christ.

Stand down!

Stand down!

Back out!

Drop your w*apon, margaret!

Put the g*n down, margaret.

Holder, i got this.

I k*lled the stansburys.

You have to arrest me.

Why sh**t them if you're so willing to confess?

Your alibi checked out.

We have the tapes from the hotel.

You were never in that house that night.

Why are you lying?

I'm not lying.

I'm confessing.

I'm a soldier.

And i know how to accept the consequences of my actions.

That's how things work in my world.

Who are you protecting?

You've been protecting him from the beginning.

You cleaned up the car.

You did everything in your power to keep us away from him.

Put the g*n down, margaret.

Philip didn't give kyle those soldiers.

You did.

17 little soldiers.

One for each of kyle's birthdays.

17 years ago, you lost a child.

It was your greatest loss.

But the baby didn't die, did he?

It wasn't philip that you were following all those years.

It wasn't him you wanted to see when you sat outside that house, When you went on all those trips.

It was kyle.

Because he's your son.

Don't tell him.


He'll think that i didn't want him.

He'll never understand.

I'm just not built that way...

...To love a child.

It makes you open to all the hurt in the world.

Philip, he just...

he never loved kyle.

i know that now.

But why didn't i see it?

Why didn't i see it?


For years, i watched him.

And there was always this sadness, this...

I should have seen it.

But he came back to you.

I thought he'd died...

That night.

But he lived.

My son lived.

And i had a second chance to know him, and he's...

And he's been hurt.

So you have to arrest me.

I'm the one who left.

I'm the one to blame, not him.

It's me.

I'm his mother.

I know what it's like to walk away...

...How hard it is to stay.

I know.

Put down your w*apon.

You have the right to remain silent.

Anything you say can and will be used against you In a court of law.

You have the right to an attorney.

If you cannot afford an attorney, One will be provided for you.

Do you understand these rights?

Man: The administration building has been cleared.

Hey, linden.


Let's go pick up kyle.

She confessed.


She lied.

I'm arresting her for the m*rder Of philip, linda, phoebe, and nadine stansbury.

No, you're not.

You're arresting her for those two kids That are lying d*ad in her office...

that's it.

She didn't k*ll the stansburys.

Don't you touch him.

You took that shell casing.


It was never missing.

You took it.

It was your insurance in case they ever found out.

You'd have proof that i did it!

You and reddick were talking!

I saw you!

I sh...

i should've...

Should've known you would leave me, too.

Officer: Pull it back further.

All the way.

Check down there.

Officer #1: Clear!

Officer #2: Clear!



Officer: House is empty.

We got nothin'.

The back door doesn't lock.

That's how we got in that night.

You're not well.

You don't know what you're saying.

I remembered.

In your house.

I remembered everything.

You shouldn't be here.

Please, we should go.

But this is home, The place you're supposed to be safe, loved.

My dad hated me.

I saw it in his eyes every day of my life.

And my mother, i didn't exist to her, not to anyone.

Maybe it's me.

Maybe something's broken in me.

Maybe something's broken in me, and everyone knows it.

They hated me...

My family, my school.

Everywhere i went, everyone hated me.

You stop it, kyle!

They had no idea what real hate was!

You want to be a soldier?!

You want to be a man?!

You have to learn to k*ll the things you love, You weak piece of f*cking shit.

Now f*cking do it.

k*ll, k*ll, k*ll!

f*cking k*ll her!

All: k*ll!







Y-you want to do it?

Let's do it.

Let's k*ll somebody.

I was gonna show them what real hate was.

Sometimes we do wrong things to make it right, And the world doesn't understand, Because how could they?

There are times when you have to make impossible choices.

Do you believe that?

I wanted to die.

I should have that night.

There weren't any b*ll*ts left in lincoln's g*n, So i went and got my dad's g*n.

You wanted to die, but a part of you wanted to live, too.


Kyle, you don't have much time.

We have to go.

it hurts.

It hurts so much.

I need...

i need...


I don't know.

I don't know.

I don't know.




just tell me.


i'll help you, if you just tell me what you need.

To find a way out.

Help me.

Then tell me.

Tell me what you did.

And then it'll be okay.

Turn the light off, man.

She's gonna see us.

She's gonna f*cking see us.


What the hell is going on?

What do you think you're doing in here?!

Get out!

Kyle, no!


Oh, no!



f*ck it!

Get the f*ck out of here!







Please don't!


Kyle: I went from room to room until they were silent...

And i was finally alone.

But i wasn't alone.

Did the monster go away?

C-close your eyes, baby bird.

Close your eyes, please.

I promise it won't hurt.

I'm sorry, baby bird.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.


Her eyes...


I couldn't stand to see it in her eyes.

See what?

That i was the monster.

That it was me.

I k*lled james skinner.

I sh*t him twice.

Put him in the car and drove it into the lake.

Holder had nothing to do with it.


I offered him a deal.

With the baby coming, figured he'd be the weak link.

I knew you wouldn't be.

Not you, sarah.

He told me to go f*ck myself in the rear end.

I'm waiving my rights.

I don't want an attorney.

Everything i've said is admissible in court.

I'll sign anything you want.

You can arrest me now.

Deputy commissioner.

Stay seated, detective linden.

Darren: Sarah.

It's been a while.

How's your son?

Jack, right?

Uh, he's in high school now, from what i recall...

What is this?

John tells me there's a rumor going around About a lieutenant skinner.

According to this rumor, He was the so-called pied piper serial m*rder.

Yes, he k*lled those girls.

It isn't a rumor.

It's true.

So i sh*t him.

I k*lled him.

I think you've made a mistake, detective.

The coroner's official report.

Lieutenant skinner's cause of death Was a self-inflicted g*n wound to the head.

It was ruled a su1c1de.

I'm sorry for your loss.

You had a personal relationship with lieutenant skinner, From what i understand.

Add that to the stress of this last case, And i can understand how his su1c1de Must have been quite a blow.

He didn't k*ll himself, and you know it.


Put me in this chair.

I would gladly lock you up For the rest of your f*cking days.

But imagine the public response If a cop, a high-ranking detective, Was the k*ller of young children.

The damage would be irreparable.

To whom?


Joe mills k*lled those girls.

Joe mills didn't k*ll those girls!

Skinner confessed!

You have this on tape?

What evidence do you have, detective?


Will go to the press.

You have a history of mental illness, sarah.

Always nice seeing you.

Always the one with the conscience.

Sometimes that's not enough.

What are you doing here?

T-thought you should have this.

It's your daughter's.

Look, i shouldn't have said those things to you.

I'm sorry.

You had no right talking to me that way.

I know.

I know.

I'm gonna be a dad.

Gonna have a little girl.

I just don't want to f*ck it up...

You know, being a dad.

Then don't.

Listen, w-where's your partner?


That's her name, right?

You still working together?

I-i got to go.

What's up, little b?

I want strawberry and lemonade cupcakes, daddy, But parker can only have one Because it's my birthday, not hers.

That's right, little lady.

It's your birthday party, not hers.

Don't you worry.

I got your back.

No vegan cupcakes, daddy.

They taste like ca-ca.

No, there's no vegan ca-ca in sight.

Pinky swear.

Happy, joyous, and free...

That's so great.

What's her name?


Ah, that's great.

It's the goddess of life and death In the hindustani tradition.

Oh, so you're a hindu now?

You know how we do.

When'd you come back?

I-i'm not back.

I'm just passing through.

I've been on the road a lot the last few years.

Um, i was in chicago for a while.

Jack's in college now.

He's almost as tall as you.



Did you find him on your travels In the big wide world, linden?

The bad guy?

There is no bad guy.

There's just...

I don't know.


We tried, at least.

You got to give us credit for tryin', right?

Yeah, we did.

Anyway, i just, um...

It's good to see you, holder.

So, why are you here?

For real?


I never...

Had a real...

House to grow up in.

You know, a home.

I never...

Belonged anywhere.

And all my life, i was looking for that...


You know?

Thinking that it was out there somewhere...

And all i had to do was find it.

But i think, maybe...

That home was us.

It was you and me together in that stupid car...

...Riding around, smoking cigarettes.

I think that was everything.

I'm sorry.

I should've known that you were one person who always stays.

You were my best friend.

Why don't you stay?



I think that this city is...

A city of the d*ad for me.


It's a matter of perception, ain't it?

Close your eyes.


Just close your eyes.


You're so weird.

Just close your eyes.

Just give it a try.

Maybe you'll see what's really there...

...What's standing right in front of you.

It ain't ghosts, linden.

It ain't the d*ad.

I'm gonna get a ticket.

I should go...





though i never learned to play i won't forget the secrets of the game are all but d*ad now i don't even want to build on the layers there's no need to complicate a simple phrase hey, there, baby we'll be fine i'll always want your peace of mind i'll always look forward to better days ahead
