01x08 - A m*rder of Woes

Post by bunniefuu »

Thing gave me your note.

I was surprised you wanted to see me again

after you ran out the other night.

So, uh, is this a date?

It's a surprise.

When I came to Nevermore,

romance was the last thing on my mind.

But when you kissed me,

you opened my eyes

and suddenly it all made sense.

Xavier warned me about you,

but I didn't listen.

Ironic now, huh?

Ironic would've been

framing Xavier for m*rder

while the real Hyde

helped me put him away.

Wait you don't think

I don't think. I know.

Kinbott probably discovered your secret

during one of your sessions.

So she unlocked you.

Why'd you k*ll her?

I thought Hydes

were typically loyal to their masters.

Wednesday, this is nuts.

On Outreach Day, I told you

I was visiting the old meeting house.

Did Kinbott send you to spy on me?

At the Rave'N,

you overheard Eugene and me

discussing your cave in the woods

and you warned Kinbott.

Eugene probably saw her torching it.

Then she sent you to clean up her mess.

I have to hand it to you, Tyler.

Wounding yourself that night

at the Gates mansion,

that was a masterstroke of misdirection.

Okay, stop. Do you know

how insane you sound right now?

I'm not a monster.

A And if you really thought that I was,

why would you risk bringing me

out to the woods to confront me alone?

Who said I was alone?

Okay, I don't know what kind of sick joke

you're playing, but I'm out of here.


you're coming with us.

Welcome back.

Where the hell am I?

Somewhere no one can hear your screams.

What's with the chains?

Don't ask stupid questions.

Wednesday, this is crazy. I'm a normie.

That's only half true.

Do you recognize her?

Perhaps if I hadn't been so distracted

by my own mother hogging this photo,

I would have noticed yours sooner.

Your father fell in love

and married an outcast.

My mom was an outcast.

That doesn't make me a monster.

According to her

personal medical records

- You stole her medical records?

- Technically, Thing did.

He took them from your garage.

Your father's quite the pack rat.

Her postpartum depression

triggered her condition.

My mom had severe bipolar disorder.

We both know that's a lie.

She was a Hyde.

And your father has been

living his life in dread,

never quite sure whether or not

she passed her condition on to you.

Are you all gonna stand there

and let her do this to me?

Uh, guys? Enid just texted.

Thornhill's suspicious.

How long until he morphs into that thing?

I'm not the monster.

You are. I saw it

in a vision at the Weathervane.

Wait, you're basing all this off

some vision you had after we kissed?

I mean, is that something you can trust?

Wednesday, what are you doing?

Just some light t*rture.

Don't worry, I won't leave a mark.

- Wednesday, hold on.

- Wait. Are you being serious?

There's only one thing

that a Hyde understands.


- Wait! No, Wednesday!

- Wednesday!

That's it. I'm out!

- Us too.

- No.

- Wait.

- No, I'm done.

Wednesday, I didn't sign up for this.

- Let's go to Weems, explain everything.

- Weems won't help.

And Tyler is always

one step ahead of his father.

Then you're on your own.

No, don't leave me here with her, please!

I'm begging you, please!

When I press him on his mother

or any sensitive issue, he snaps,

becoming cold and detached.

It's like I'm talking

to a different person.

I'm increasingly concerned.

I believe the trauma of losing his mother

may have left Tyler with deeper

psychological scars than I suspected.

- Hello?

- Sheriff Galpin.

We have a problem.

And her name is Wednesday Addams.

What is Kinbott, or should I say

Laurel Gates, using you for?

Wednesday, please.

Tyler, the body parts

in the basement of the Gates mansion,

what was she collecting them for?

I don't understand.

Why are you doing this?

Let's test your reflexes.

- I'm in here!

- Get away from my son! Drop it.

Drop it.

Sign here.

Sheriff Galpin isn't

pressing kidnapping charges.

Which is a miracle

given the circumstances.

Of course not.

How long have you known?

Excuse me?

When I gave you that claw from the cave,

did you already know?

Wednesday, that's enough.

Xavier Thorpe is our Hyde.

We've got evidence, thanks to you.

That's why I'm giving you one pass.

Tyler is going to turn on you too.

Let's go.

Get out.

We Wednesday, wait.

Tyler! No, no, what are you doing?

I need to talk to her, Dad.

She was my friend.

We're in a police station.

What's gonna happen?

Make it quick.

What do you want?

To ask a question.

What does it feel like?

What does what feel like?

To lose.

You know, at first,

I'd wake up naked,

covered in blood,

no idea what happened.

But over time,

I started to remember


The sound of their screams,

the panic in their eyes,

and a fear so primal I could taste it.

And it was delicious.

You have no idea what's coming.

The quid pro quo

for Sheriff Galpin not pressing charges

is your immediate expulsion

from Nevermore.

The others had nothing to do with this.

I acted alone.

For someone who claims to have no friends,

you certainly protect them.

They didn't have guts

to do what needed to be done.

You mean kidnapping and t*rture?

I should hope not.

You do realize that Tyler

brutally disemboweled six people,

then harvested a variety

of their body parts.

Perhaps if you'd come to me

with your suspicions

rather than take matters

into your own hands,

we could've worked together.

Because trust and cooperation have always

been hallmarks of our relationship.

I admire your ability

to be your own person

and trust your own instincts.

But that also makes you

impatient and impulsive.

Your actions have put me

and the school in an impossible position.

Tyler is the Hyde.

And he has framed Xavier.

He confessed everything to me!

I wish I could believe you.

His mother was an outcast.

She was a student here,

you must remember her.

She was a Hyde!

Yes, Francois. A lovely woman.

I didn't ask what she identified as.

Then give me more time,

and I can prove they are Hydes.

There is no more time,

and there are no more deals, Wednesday.

Pack your steamer trunks.

We will have them shipped.

And say your goodbyes.

You'll be on the afternoon train tomorrow.

I'm sorry Nevermore

didn't work out for you, Wednesday.

I'm sure your mother

will be very disappointed.

And so am I.

Xavier I'm not sure

how much time we have.

Thing distracted the guards

and is looping the cameras.

What are you doing here?

I know you're not the Hyde.

Tyler used me to frame you.

He is the actual Hyde.

How do you know?

I saw it in a vision when he kissed me.

I'm glad you were getting some action

while I was falsely accused.

I should've believed you.

But since you seem to have

some psychic connection to the Hyde,

I was curious if you've drawn anything

- that might shed light on this?

- You want my help?

You ruined my life!


I tried being your friend.

- Look where that got me.

- This isn't about us, Xavier.

No, it's about you!

Every time you get involved,

people get hurt.

You're toxic.

All you ever do is make things worse.

Tyler warned me something bad

was coming. I think

I don't care!

Do you want to stop this? Then leave.

Go far away and never come back.

Do you understand?

That can't happen if you're not here.

That's how you save everyone, okay?

So, go.


I can't believe I'm actually going to miss

your creepy, lifeless eyes waking me up.

It won't be the same without you.

So I assume you'll be moving in with Yoko.

Leaving me in the past.

Not ever.

What about you?

Will you forget about me?

Enid the mark

you have left on me is indelible.

Anytime I grow nauseous

at the sight of a rainbow

or hear a pop song

that makes my ears bleed,

I'll think of you.


I guess.

I always believed relying on other people

to be a sign of weakness.

That inevitably they would

lead me to disappointment.

Turns out I've been the disappointment.

Are you kidding me?

I've learned so much from you.

Part of it is admittedly

criminal behavior,

but most people spend their entire lives

pretending to give zero effs,

and you literally

never had an eff to give.

Any chance you've got

some sort of sneaky plan to elude Weems?

Xavier's right.

This prophecy cannot

come true if I'm not here.

But it kills me to leave

when Tyler is still walking around free.

If he tries anything,

we have a school full of gorgons,

vampires, and werewolves,

ready and waiting.

We've got this, Wednesday. I promise.

On a good note,

I got a text from Eugene's moms.

He woke up last night.

Maybe Weems'll let you drop by

on your way to the station.

I think we're all set.


I'm going to miss our makeup tutorials.

And you better keep sending me

moisturizing tips.

Stay in touch, okay?

So, we're gonna

You're right.

Not hugging is kind of our thing.

The plan wasn't to get you expelled.

We're sorry.

The Nightshades need to be ready

for what's coming.

Or a lot of people are going to die.

I'm so glad I caught you.

I was weeding my wolfsbane,

and I just completely lost track of time.

This is a parting gift.

White oleander, one of nature's deadliest.

It also symbolizes destiny and renewal.

You're a very talented young woman,


I can't wait to see what you do next.


This time I'm personally

escorting you to your train.

I have one final favor.



Glad to see you're finally awake.

- I heard you visited all the time.

- Don't ever mention it again.

Listen, I've been meaning to tell you

I shouldn't have gone to the dance.

I should have been with you.

When the dance floor calls,

you gotta answer.

- It's not your fault. It's the monster's.

- It's actually called a Hyde.

It's still out there.

You can't go back to Nevermore.

Not even to check on your bees.

And you have to listen to me this time.

I thought hummers were

supposed to stick together.

That night in the woods,

someone set f*re to that cave.

Yes, Dr. Kinbott.

It's so crazy that it was her.

I don't really remember any of it.

I just saw someone wearing black

and those boots.

What about her boots?

There was an expl*si*n of light

and just for a moment,

I saw that they weren't black.

They were red.


I thought you'd be

halfway to New Jersey by now.

You can drop the act, Laurel.

I should have known it was you.

Faking your death,

securing a job at Nevermore,

unlocking a Hyde.

Typically, I have great admiration

for well-executed revenge plots.

But yours was a bit extreme,

even for my high standards.

Oh, dear.

Weems was right.

You do need psychiatric help.

Can't throw out wild accusations

without consequences.

They may be wild but they're true.

Tyler told me everything.

Initially I incorrectly accused Kinbott

of using hypnosis to unlock him.

But you used

a plant-derived chemical, didn't you?

I know your father kept tabs

on all the outcasts in town.

So I assume he told you about the Galpin

family secret when you were just a girl.

That's why you targeted Tyler.

You manipulated him

by showing him what his mother truly was.

What Tyler didn't realize

is that truth wouldn't free him.

I'm so sorry.

It would enslave him to you.

That was scary at first,

so you used the cave and the shackles.

But eventually he willingly

became your servant.

And when Kinbott came close

to discovering the truth,

you had Tyler k*ll her

and pin it on Xavier.

Ugh. That's enough.

Tyler, honey,

make Mama happy and shut her up.


He's not on your side.

Tyler will do anything for me.

Remember what I told you?

I showed you who you really are.

What they did to your mother

The outcasts made you a monster.

If you only hate outcasts,

why is he k*lling normies as well?

They're just pawns in a bigger game.

Just like you, Wednesday.

Once again,

you've underestimated the situation.

You were never getting on that train.

I sent Tyler to intercept you.

I never made it to the station.

Heard enough?

Your sl*ve is probably

still at the station.

Don't make this more difficult

than it already is, Marilyn.

My name is Laurel!

Principal Weems!

Principal Weems!

Nightshade poisoning.

A fitting end, don't you think?


Are you okay?

You're not gonna, like,

wolf out on me, are you?

It is a full blood moon.

I'm okay, I think.

But this is helping.

Hey! Eugene, how are you?

Have you seen Wednesday?

No, she left this afternoon.

Didn't she swing by to see you?

Listen, Principal Weems and her

went and confronted Ms. Thornhill.

But I haven't heard a peep

from either of them.

Why would they confront Ms. Thornhill?

Because she's behind

everything that's happened.

She's the bad guy bad woman.

She's just a really bad person.

Okay. Ajax and I will go

check out the conservatory.

- Yo. Bee boy, welcome back.

- What's he doing in your room?



Slow down! What happened?

Principal Weems?

- What the hell is going on?

- What about Wednesday?

Tyler and Thornhill took her?


Crackstone's crypt, what the heck?

Who are the Nightshades?

I'll I'll explain on the way.

Come on.

Guys. Guys?

Calm down, Eugene.

That gorgon is a moron.

It It could be dangerous.

If Enid's right,

and Wednesday's been taken,

- we need to call the sheriff.

- Mom, I've got to go.

Wednesday's my only friend,

and if she's in trouble, I've got to help.

It's hive code.

Kind of a déjà vu thing

we got going on, huh?

Except I won't cry and whine like a child.

Tyler, go wait by the boat.


Listen to your master

and be a good little Hyde.

I have to admit

that shape-shifting stunt

with Weems almost worked.

But as my father always said,

"If you want to outsmart an outcast,

you got to out-think 'em."

You know, we have roots that go

all the way back to Joseph Crackstone.

So you come from a line

of psychotic killers too.

Joseph Crackstone was a visionary,

dedicated to protecting

normies from outcasts

until his life was cut short

by your ancestor, Goody Addams.

And then, to add insult to injury,

they stole his land to build

that abomination of a school.


throughout the centuries,

my family has remained

committed to Crackstone's mission.

My brother died serving that cause.

I decided to take a different approach.

The supernatural.

Tyler's been collecting these body parts

to resurrect Crackstone.

The one man who nearly succeeded

in eradicating the outcasts.

You can't wake the d*ad.

Believe me, I've tried.

I believe your ancestor Goody Addams

would disagree.

Goody's Book of Shadows.

You're the one that stole

the original from Pilgrim World.

It wasn't enough for Goody

to k*ll Crackstone.

She had to curse his soul too.

What does this have to do with me?

My dear Wednesday,

you are the key.

Your arrival at Nevermore set

the chubby wheels of my plan in motion.

Goody sealed Crackstone

in his sarcophagus with a blood lock.

Only one of her direct descendants

can open it.

You are the key.

A living descendant

on the night of a blood moon.

So I bided my time,

and I made you feel special

until you were ready to be sacrificed.

Damn it.


Santiago, what's up?

Sir, we got a situation.

Eugene Ottinger's mom

just called, frantic.

- Something's going on at Nevermore.

- Get a couple cars over there ASAP.

That's just it, I can't.

The tires on the squad cars

have been slashed. Every damn one.

All right, I'm on my way.

I am of your blood.

I have summoned you to rid the world

of outcasts once and for all.

My vengeance will be swift and true.

As will mine.

Goody Addams.

You haunt me still.

You will suffer the same fate

you bequeathed me.

Now burn in the eternal fires of hell.

Where you belong.

Sweet dreams, Wednesday!

I can't believe you're in a secret society

and you didn't tell me.

Because, you know,

it's secret.

Bianca, Davina

and Kent?

Seriously, even Kent is here?

How exclusive is this club?

So, what's the deal

with Thornhill being a psycho?

She m*rder Weems and then took

Wednesday to Crackstone's crypt.

We have to get everyone in the school

to safety before it's too late.

This is what's coming.

So do we pull the f*re alarms?

We don't want to cause a panic

and alert Tyler or Thornhill.

So how do we get everyone out?

We'll use our siren song to convince them.

Thing and I will go look for Wednesday.

Okay, Nightshades forever.

Seriously, a secret snap too?


Are you here to take me to the other side?

Listen, Crackstone must be s*ab

through his black heart.

It is the only way

he will be vanquished now and forever.

Is your spectral vision impaired?

I'm dying.

Your necklace.

It is a powerful talisman.

My mother told me

it's for conjuring visions.

It is also a conduit

for conjuring spirits.

It will allow me

to pass through you and heal you.

Just know, once I do,

you will never see me again.

The school needs you, Wednesday.

Why're we stopping

in the middle of the woods?

- You tracking your little monster?

- You shut it.

Hey, wait. Wait!

Hey! What about me?


Oh, you assh*le!

Come on, let's move quickly

and calmly, all right?

- Good job! Let's keep moving.

- Bianca!

What the hell's going on?

Danger is on its way.

No time to delay.

Follow me. Come on, faster.

Oh my God.

Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!

It's happening!

Thing, I'm wolfing out!

Laurel said you were d*ad.

I'm feeling much better now.

You're like a cockroach.

Please, flattery will get you nowhere.

This will not end well for you.



I need to get back to the school.

I can't tell you

how I've longed for this moment,

what it means for my family.

Silence, woman!

Be gone, or I will cut thy tongue

from thy wretched mouth!

Never meet your heroes.

I will expunge

you abominations from this Earth!



Yes, Thing!


Son, is that really you?

Howdy, pilgrim.

How canst thy heart still b*at?

What demon sorcery is this?

Stay away from her!


- Oh my God!

- I'm fine. Go. Get them out of here!



Come on, guys. Let's go! Go! Go!

I will send you back to hell.

You brought a g*n to a sword fight.

It's probably the first smart decision

you've made today.

I might not get to k*ll all the outcasts,

but at least I'll get to k*ll you,


Yeah, that's what you get

for messing with Nevermore.


Hummers stick together, right?

I'll take it from here.

Maybe we should call the sheriff?

Turn around, Eugene.


Where's Wednesday?

I hate to admit,

but I am gonna miss Principal Weems.

She could be a real pain.

But she was tough.

And she died for the one thing

she truly loved, this school.

For that, I have immense respect.

She was one of us.

Now that classes are canceled

for the semester,

you have to come visit me

in San Francisco.

I can pretty much guarantee

fog and drizzle every day.

Sounds tempting.


I owe you a thank-you.

We're getting that

fencing title next year.

So don't let k*lling one

supernatural pilgrim get to your head.

I hear you're a free man now.

Yup. All charges dismissed.


When I was in the cell

I said a lot of things.

Being your friend

should come with a warning label.

But I don't know a lot of people

who would take an arrow for me. So

Welcome to the 21st century, Addams.

My number's in there already.

That's a bold move.

I hope you're not expecting me to call.

No, never.

I'd settle for a text, though.

You know what a text is, right?

Goodbye, Xavier.

Hey, are you going to be back

next semester?

Yes? No? Maybe?

My very first stalker.

Maybe this forced vacation

will be more interesting than I imagined.

Unlike my novel,

not every thread has been tied up,

nor every question answered.

Secrets are still lurking

in the dark corners of Jericho.

Were Laurel Gates and Tyler

just pawns in a bigger game?

Will today's stalker

become tomorrow's nemesis?

I know the suspense is k*lling you.
