(crickets chirping)

Maybe me most of all.

It's hard not to be after
all we've been through.

And so we retreat...

for the familiar,

places we feel safest,

behind the walls of our
righteous fortresses,

but it's all a fairy tale.

We're-- we're not safe...

behind these walls...

not in our own homes,

not inside our own skin.

Because we have been deceived.

ANDERSON: But not by
the Great Deceiver...

because there is no Devil.

Now, Devil or not,

evil is real, it exists.

It infects us,

spreading hatred...

and madness...

and death.

And now,

today's selection from
the Holy Scriptures.

What shall enlighten us tonight?

Hmm? What words...

will gird us for the battle to come?

How about the Psalms?

So full of lessons to make us feel

we're living a righteous life.

- (congregation agreeing)
- So much...

- bullshit.
- (congregation murmuring)

Or Ezekiel,

who reminds us of God's sovereignty

over all of his creation.

- That's a f*cking laugh.
- MAN: I've heard enough.

ANDERSON: And that's
just the Old Testament.

We have even gotten to...

to God's promise to send
a savior to protect us.

- Matthew...
- (rips out page, crumples)

crap. John...


- Oh my gosh. I can't believe--
- Smoke...

blown up the world's

collective ass.

ANDERSON: Now, I believe...

in good and evil

and that good can and must prevail.

- Amen.
- And it will...

just so long...

as it lives in the hearts
of righteous people.

- Amen.
- I don't give a shit

what you want to call it,

but if you truly want to
do God's will on Earth...

- raise an army in his name.

Go out there, find the enemy,

- and destroy them.
- Amen. Yes.

Because Lord knows...

he ain't gonna do it for us.

- Amen.

SIMON: We never got married.

She wanted to...

especially after you were born.

She took my name.

She wanted you to have it.

But I always thought that was
some kind of a bad omen.

I didn't want my stink
rubbing off on you.

Suppose that makes it easier
when you want to get up and go.

That's not what I wanted.

I figured if I wasn't around,
maybe they would pass you by.

I thought that way about my family once.

Difference is, though,
I checked in on mine.

Wanted to make sure my kid
wasn't locked in a closet...


hair pulled out by the root.

You know...

that kind of thing.

I know you're upset with me,

but we don't have time
for a therapy session.

You know, after you left,

now and then, I'd ask Mom about you.

"Where'd he go?"

"What kind of man was he?"

"Did you love him?"


"Is it my fault?"


She could only ever say two things.

"He left."

Now you're here. So what
kind of man are you?

You a cult leader here to
watch the end of the world?

'Cause you sure act the f*cking part.

The world doesn't have to end, son.

Did you tell them that?

Your chosen ones out there?

I think you're feeding
them a line of shit.

And I think they're just some
other family you got tired of.

(electrical crackling)

You feel that, don't you?

It makes the hair on your arm stand up

like lightning's about to strike,

and if you close your eyes,
you can actually see it.

Those pinpricks of light
dancing around in the dark.

Those are beacons...

and they're coming...


How do you know?

Because I told 'em.

How's that work?

We tend to gather around together,

like water finding an ocean.

That's how a bunch of us ended up here.

Is that the way it was before?

With those eight beacons that
I saw buried in the junkyard?

Go on, tell me you didn't do that.

She is fine, I assure you.

You and your baby appear
to be perfectly healthy.

Your oxygen levels were a little low,

so I thought it best to
start a prenatal program,

- intravenous vitamins--
- What kind of f*cking doctor are you?

Would you like to see the sonogram?


Obstetrics weren't really my specialty.
I was...

more of a research fellow,

but it's a girl.

That deranged midwife
told me the opposite,

but she was also convinced
the baby was one of you.

Well, you can never really tell.

Stop f*cking with my head!

I'm clean. My baby's clean.

You just said we were both fine.

Truth is, I don't know any one of us
that has ever carried a baby to term.

The body always seems
to find a way to...

expel it.

- Megan, that's--
- (gasps)

I promise you.

I will do everything in my power...

to bring your baby into this world.

Thanks, but just give me my vitamins,

and I'll just check in every few weeks.

I suggest you try to
find a new head space...

or these next seven months
will be unpleasant.

Let me out of here!

Let me out of here now!

MEGAN: Let me out! f*ck you!

You're getting pretty comfortable

I don't take any comfort in

We just happen to share the same goal.

We didn't ask you to
m*ssacre your council.

That was all you.

Though I am impressed
you took out Sidney.

WOMAN: Bold.

I didn't.

I haven't seen Sidney since

Your old friend, Sidney, had a job here.

To protect Kyle Barnes,

because he could bring about the Merge.

So now it's your job

to look after Mr. Barnes
and his daughter,

and his father.

Because what they can start,

they can stop.


You do that for us.

Keep us informed on what
your friends are doing,

Now, we have some friends
to entertain, so...

(sighs) I'm still not hearing a plan.

We need to all come together

Are you f*cking kidding me?

That's exactly what they've been
trying to do this whole time!

Get us all in one place
and bring on the Merge.

Yes, but they're not
expecting us to fight back.

I know what we can do.

I know who we are, we can push 'em back.

Now, once these sumbitches understand

that they can't come back here,
they're gonna leave us alone.

They'll die off and let us...

go on living like normal human beings.

How do you know?

How do you know it'll work?

Because I've seen our power.

Thirty years ago...

but it's dangerous.

Getting everybody together
in one place like that.

Especially after what Helen did.

What did Helen do, exactly?

They hate what makes us human, son.

They hate everything about it...

so she bored it out of 'em.

(drill whirring)

Removed their ability to feel...
to think.

She just left 'em there,
sitting in their light.

When I showed up, the whole
place felt electrified.

It was lifting me up, I could
barely keep my feet on the ground.

It was happening.

Their Merge was happening...

and I had to stop it.


Which one of 'em survived that night?

Kyle said he found eight bodies, but...

there was nine.

Must've miscounted.

We're gonna need every
single one of 'em.

We're gonna need all of the light
