Let the Right One In...

Hey. I made a more special cake
for Isaiah.

I hope that's okay.

You and Eleanor made this night

just... perfect.

How does this guy
know about Peter?

It's got something to do

- with that cop.
- The woman?

I thought you were
taking care of that.

It'll happen.
First this guy, then her.

I think he's protecting
another vampire.

Eerie music

Dramatic music

Stay where you are.
Now, turn around.

Do it, or I k*ll your father.

Matthew's d*ad.

He gave his life for us.

And he did it so you could
have a chance to get better.

So I want you
to pay attention to me

and do exactly as I say.

What about Claire Logan?

We just k*lled three of her men.

We're gonna have
to let that go for now.

Ellie and I have to leave

right away.

But not forever.



Dramatic music

I think you've been
looking for me.

I'm Claire.


And you are?


You're very special,
aren't you Eleanor?

What do you want?

- I want you to come with me.
- Where?

My house.

I don't trust you, either,

but I suspect
we're after the same thing.

And what is that?

A cure.

"God's Gonna Cut You Down"
by Johnny Cash

You can run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Sooner or later,
God'll cut you down

Sooner or later, God'll

Cut you down

Go tell that long-tongue liar

Go and tell that midnight rider

Tell the rambler, the gambler

The backbiter,
tell 'em that God's gonna

Cut 'em down,
tell 'em that God's

Gonna cut 'em down

Well, my goodness gracious,
let me tell you the news

My head's been wet
with the midnight dew

I've been down on bended knee

Talking to the man
from Galilee...

You're welcome here.

Voice so sweet, I thought
I heard the shuffle

Of angel's feet,
he called my name

And my heart stood still

When he said,
"John, go do my will"

Go tell that long-tongue liar

Go and tell that midnight rider

Tell the rambler,
the gambler, the backbiter

Tell 'em that God's gonna
cut 'em down

Tell 'em that God's gonna

Cut 'em down

You can run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Sooner or later,
God'll cut you down

Sooner or later

God'll cut you down

Well, you may throw your rock

Hide your hand

Working in the dark
against your fellow man

But as sure as God made
black and white

What's done in the dark

Will be brought to the light

You can run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Sooner or later,
God'll cut you down

Sooner or later

God'll cut you down

Go tell that long-tongue liar...

Peter, this is Eleanor.

this is my brother, Peter.

The gambler, the backbiter

Tell them that God's gonna

Cut you down

Tell them that God's gonna

Cut you down

Tell them that God's gonna

Cut you down

Have we met?

I was wondering the same thing.

I know I've seen your...


Honey, what is it?

- It's me.
- What?

We were partners.

Honey... what are you
talking about?

You remember when
you and Mom took me

to that stargazers club?

He and I met that night.

When was this?

Ten years ago.

Ellie was attacked
just a few days later.

So was I.

Peter, do you remember anyone
else being there that night?

Maybe someone, I don't know,
acting strange?

Yeah, there was a man.

- What?
- You remember?

He came up to us,
said he was, like, a volunteer.

He asked where we live.

- He what?
- Yeah, he said

he was collecting addresses
for a newsletter.

Ellie was bitten

outside our home.

If that was really the...


If Eleanor and Peter
were infected by the same host,

that means they carry
the same strain,

which means I finally
might be able to treat it.

But I'll...

I'll have to confirm
they're a match.


I'll need a sample
of your virus.

Oh, no, no, no.
You're not touching my daughter.

Well, then, it's...

gonna be very difficult
to help her.

Dad, this is what
we came here for.

If you need her blood,

I'll take it.

I wish it were as simple
as a blood draw,

but the virus is housed
inside the brain.

I'm assuming you don't want me
drilling into her skull.

You are assuming right.

So, there's only one
other place that it lives.

My bite.

your salivary glands...

but impressive.

This way, please.

Slow, somber music


- Isaiah.
- What?

I, uh...

I spoke to Mr. Mark.

I know they're gone.

He said that Eleanor
was gonna say goodbye to you.

Did that happen?

Did it not go well?

It's okay to be upset.

I'm not upset.

I am.

What you and Eleanor have
is very special.

It doesn't have to end
just because she moved away.

The two of you can-can

- text and Face Time every day...
- No, we can't.

Of course you can.

No, I never get
to talk to her again!

- What? That doesn't even make...
- No.


Okay. Okay.

Be very, very still.

That's it?

That's it.

I barely even felt it.

My sister knows
what she's doing.

What happens now?

Now, I sequence her virus.

How long will it take?

Uh, it's a pretty simple

Should be just a few hours.

A few hours.



I've been looking for answers
for ten years.

I've been coming
at this all wrong.

What do you mean?

All this time
I've been searching

for the monster who bit Ellie.

Thinking that will
lead me to a cure.

I just had no idea
what I was doing.

Well, finding the host

would be immensely valuable.

And searching for it

led you to me.


You and I met once, too.


After Ellie was bitten,
I knocked on your door.

You don't remember?

You told me
your brother was d*ad.

I thought he was.

My father waited until his
deathbed to tell me the truth.

Oh, maybe he did it

to protect you.


I've just been...

taking care of Peter for
just a few months and it's...

it's nearly broken me.

You've been doing it
for ten years.

Can I ask you something?

How have you two
not gotten caught?

I've seen firsthand
the mess she leaves.


That's not...

She-she-she-she's never

done that before.

Well, how does she...

You k*ll for her.

Do you have help?


Do you?

I used to.

What happened to them?

You put a b*llet in his head.

Your house is ginormous.

Is it?

I grew up here, so it doesn't
really feel that big to me.

For two people?

Used to be three.

There was my dad, but he died.

I'm sorry.

I'm not.

I've just always been closer
with Claire, you know?

She seems super smart.

Yeah, she's a genius.
I mean, like, literally.

She won a grant
called a Genius Award.

- She won a MacArthur?
- Yeah.

I was "Most Improved"
on my JV soccer team,

so I think we're basically even.

I played soccer once.

Not for you?

I was too slow.

I doubt that's a problem now.

Uh, this is what I wanted
to show you.

You like it?

It's nice.

And there's an elevator
at the end of the hallway

that goes straight
to the basement,

so you never have to worry
about the sun.

I don't get it.
Is this where you sleep

when you get bored of your room?


This would be yours.

Slow, tense music

I'm proposing that you and
Eleanor live with me and Peter

until they're both cured.

I'll need her close by
as I conduct my research,

and I need you to...

To... what?

The man you k*lled...

Matthew was his name.

Peter and I depended on him,

so I need you to take over
his responsibilities.

Um... what might those be?

Feeding my brother,
for starters,

which, given your track record,
shouldn't be a problem.

How long?

- How long what?
- Till they're cured.

You want a date?

I have no idea,

but if they really are a match,
we're talking months, not years.

It might not be safe

for me and Ellie to stay
in one place for that long.

Oh, no, I can promise you
it's not.

Just yesterday, a detective
showed up at my door.

And based on your reaction,
you know who I'm talking about.

Matthew suspected
there was a connection between

you and this woman.

Is she your friend?

I'm sorry.

For what?

She's already starting
to connect the dots.

It's not gonna take her months

- to figure it all out.
- You're not...

I can't help Eleanor
if I'm in prison.

- No.
- You've just told me you've

- k*lled over a hundred...
- I don't care. Not her.

Either we're in this together,
or we're not.

The answer is no.

Is this woman's life worth

more than your daughter's?

Either you k*ll her tonight,

or you can say goodbye
to any hope of a cure.

Listen, I don't know

what Eleanor said to Isaiah,

but he's under the impression

that he's not allowed
to talk to her ever again.

And I-I don't think
I need to tell you that,

after what happened with
his dad, the last thing he needs

is for another someone he loves

to fall off
the face of the earth.

So, I need you to call me back
as soon as you get this message.


Want to take a field trip?

Excuse me?

I've been looking through
some of these files,

and, no disrespect
to the fine work

of the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police,

but there are a few witnesses

I'd like
to interview personally.

I'm headed to the airstrip now,
want to come?

I can't tonight.

You sure? Montreal in March
is like Paris in June.

- It's just not a good time.
- Oh.

Troubles with the boyfriend?
Or the, uh, not-boyfriend?


feel free to tell me
to mind my own business,

but I have this friend,
and whenever some assh*le

ghosts her, she sends a couple
of U.S. Marshals to his house.

Yeah, well, to do that, I'd have
to know where the hell he went.

Oh, should be easy enough
to find him.

He's got a phone, doesn't he?

I'm not sending marshals
to his house.

But I bet you'd still like
to know where he is.

In our line of work, we got
to look out for each other.

If I run it through my channels,

there is zero chance
that it blows back on you.

You got a pen?

Slow, tense music


In here.

- Hey.
- Hey.

You brought that with you?

You said we were
leaving for good,

and I always have it
with me when we leave.


I don't know, I wanted
to see if this place

could feel like home.

Which one is your favorite?

Slow, somber music

Probably that one.

She'd be proud of you, Dad.

You never lost faith
that we'd find a cure.

Even when I did.

- Honey...
- Thank you.

- Ellie...
- And I know

it's not for sure
gonna happen, but...

it might.

Dad, I might actually...

You okay?

- You sure?
- Mm-hmm.

Dad, what's wrong?

Nothing's wrong.

If we're staying,

I'm gonna get our stuff, okay?

Want me to come with?

No, no, no.

I'll be quick.

But, while I'm gone,

do not let

that woman get anywhere
near you.


No, no, no, no. Promise me that.

I promise.


- Is Eleanor...
- Upstairs with her dad.

What'd he say?

He's thinking about it,
but he'll say yes.


Because he loves her.

Tense, dramatic music

You're having second thoughts.


It's okay.

I just...

Does it have to be
like it was with Chris?

No, of course not.

- 'Cause that was just...
- Peter.

If she was really infected
at the same time as you,

by the same host as you,

she's a thousand times
more valuable than Chris.

Any treatment I want to give
you, I can test first on her.

Any procedure,
any biopsy that's too risky.

So you're saying
she's a lab rat.

I'm saying she's you.

We will never get a chance
like this again.

Do you understand?

Will she suffer?

I don't know.

But I will...

I will do everything I can
to minimize that, and...

once he takes care
of our police problem,

we'll have time
to do this right,

to be precise.

Well, eventually,
he's gonna figure out

that we're not really
trying to help her.

Don't ever forget
what they did to Matthew.

The people who love you
have sacrificed all.

Soon, it'll be your turn
to step up.


I was gonna order some pizza.

Got a hankering for Hawaiian.

Thanks, I'm not hungry.

I'd really like to know
what Eleanor said to you.

Why you think you'll never
hear from her again.

There's something you're
not telling me, isn't there?

She said I'd be safer
if we didn't talk.

Did she say why?



I told her I didn't care
if I was safe,

but she decided
it wasn't up to me.

Can I tell you something

that I'm embarrassed to admit?


I wish your heart
wasn't quite so big.

'Cause I knew,

when it got broken,
it would hurt like this.

But you need to know

that, no matter what happens,

there is one person

who will never disappear on you.

I'll be in your business
in ways you don't even want.

I'll let you know
when the pizza's here.

Hey, what'd you find out?

You sure
know how to pick 'em, honey.

Excuse me?

Didn't you say
your ex was a dealer?

I'm not so sure
this not-boyfriend of yours

- is much better.
- Why?

Well, for starters,

that number you gave me
was for a burner.

- It was what?
- Which, in itself,

could be innocuous, but the fact

that he'd turned off
location services

is, uh, not a good sign.

Of course, you got to get
a little stealthier than that

to evade the likes of me.

His phone last pinged
20 minutes ago

off the cell tower
in Long Island.

He's on Long Island?

At a residence titled
to Claire Logan.

Isn't that the woman you got
in trouble for harassing?

At some point,
you're gonna tell me

how this is
all connected, right?

As soon as I know, you'll know.

I'm gonna hold you to that.

Okay, I'm off to Canada.

Call you if I find
anything good?


You be careful.

Slow, tense music


I got a favor to ask.

I know that God
will never forgive me

for what I'm about to do,

but I'm not asking God for help,

I'm asking you.

Please, Liz,

give me the strength

to see this through.

You mind telling me why
the hell we're meeting here?

Just, I wanted you both
to hear it from me.

Hear what?

That you didn't throw away
your lives in vain.

I found her, Zeke.

- Found who?
- The woman in charge.

She's real.

It's all real.

And Ellie might
finally get cured.


Uh, why don't you look happy?

I am happy.

You look like
you're about to be sick.

Once Ellie

gets her life back,

she's gonna need someone
to look after her.

She's got someone.

After she's cured,

I'm turning myself in.

My crimes don't go away
just because she's better,


I should pay for what I've done.

There is a line that...

once you cross...

There's no coming back.

Slow, gentle music

I was in the middle of a game.

Just kidding. I hate chess.


The whole point is
to protect your king, but...

it's the queens
doing all the work.

This your room?


It was my dad's.

Your dad had a lot of books.

I think he even read
a couple of them.

You like reading?

I could tell you're curious.

It's the best quality
a scientist can have.

Peter said you won a MacArthur.

I'm impressed
you know what that is.

Don't ask him
what I won it for, though.

I tried to explain it
to him one time,

and he was bored
out of his mind.

I'm not.

Do you want to come downstairs
and help me with my work?

Quiet, tense music

I should wait for my dad

to get back.

Well, when he does,

remind me to show you
my favorite part of the lab.

There's a part of the lab
I haven't seen?


When I said I'd do you a favor,
I didn't know I'd get tipped.

- Thought you were the pizza.
- The what?

I ordered Hawaiian

if you want to stick around.

Don't even joke about that.

Here's the item.

You gonna tell me why
I'm dusting it for prints?

I'm not entirely sure myself,

but I need you to check it
against any outstanding cases

related to our drug.



I'm sorry, I know I said

I wouldn't drag you
back into this...

Well, there's an argument
I owe you one,

seeing as you saved my life.


Enjoy your pizza.

f*ck off.

Tense, ominous music

I know, I was taken aback
the first time I saw them, too.

Why is this room your favorite?

Because of her.

All of these chimpanzees carry
the same virus as you and Peter,


Daisy's different.

She's a miracle.


I injected her with
a viral protease inhibitor.

Now she can age.

Of course,
Peter mocked me for curing

the only good thing
about this virus...

I don't think it's good at all.

My best friend
just had a birthday,

and it was, like,
the best day ever.

And at the end of it,
I was so sad.

That makes sense.

It does?

Of course.

What makes life special
is that it doesn't last forever.

The injection
you gave to Daisy...

is it safe for people, too?

Slow, tense music

What the h...

Tense, somber music



Sorry. I know it's unfair
of me to call

when I said we couldn't talk.

That's okay.

Are you okay?




It looks like I might
actually get cured.


It's not gonna happen
right away, but...

If I do...

I was wondering if you

still want to be my friend.

- Are you there?
- Yeah.


Sorry, was that a "yeah, you're
there," or "yeah, you still..."

It was a yeah for both.

Are you sure?


Because it seriously
might take a while before...

I don't care.

I know you're worried
that I'm gonna be, like,

20, and you'll still be 12,

- but...
- Actually,

I'm not so worried
about that anymore.

- What?
- Eleanor,

we're ready.

I got to go.





I miss you, too.

I know it looks
a little medieval,

but the treatment
can only be administered

by a spinal injection, so...

it's extremely important
you don't move.

And if you get
freaked out, just let me know,

and I'll press this button,
and everything unlocks.


Slow, tense music

You ready?

Pizza's here.


I-I thought you'd left.

Uh, I just came back to...

get our stuff.

And I'm sorry I...

haven't called you back.

But I wanted
to do this in person.

Do what?

Say goodbye.


I can explain why
we have to leave,

and why Ellie told Isaiah

she can never talk to him again.

Go ahead.

Do you mind if we
talk next door?

At my place.

Don't you think it's strange,

after all this time our kids
have spent together,

that I have never

seen where you live?

I-I-I can explain that, too.


I'm gonna go grab my keys.

Let's go.


Uh, go back to your room, baby.

But I thought I heard...
Mr. Mark.

What are you doing here?

I-I-I just... um...

Mr. Mark is just here
to pack up their belongings,

and he and I need
to speak in private.

Well, at least
let me say goodbye.


I got to say goodbye to Eleanor.

I didn't get
to say goodbye to him.

Goodbye, Mr. Mark.

Tell Eleanor it's
okay if she never gets cured.

I like her the way she is.

Be back in a little bit.


You ready?

I'm sorry.

I can't.


- You okay?
- Yeah. You?

Yeah. Yeah. Listen, uh,
something came up at work.

I was gonna leave it
until tomorrow,

but I really should go in,
but only if you are okay.

I'm good.

Okay, so pizza money's
on the counter,

- lock the door behind me.
- Mom?


Thanks for being
so cool tonight.

- See you later.
- See you later.

Intense music

Lean all the way forward,

Dramatic music


I know I said before
to be very, very still,

but seriously, do not move.

It's over, it's over.

It's okay. Breathe. Come on,
Eleanor. Look at me, look at me.


There you go.

You feel any older?

I know it's a lot to take in.

I have to tell my Dad
I did this.

- Could you let me out, please?
- Uh, just... in a little bit.

I just have to observe you
a little bit longer.

But you said you
gave this to Daisy.

I did.

And you took it, too, right?

Of course he did.

Is it done? Did you do it?

Why are you wearing scrubs?
Where's my daughter?


I ran the prints.

The results just came back.

That was fast.

That's 'cause you were right.

They're a match.

- To what?
- The prints on Frank's coin.


You okay?

Yeah, I-I was just, um...

I-Isaiah's father?


You sure you're okay?

Naomi, what the f*ck
is going on?



In here.

You didn't do it, did you?

Hey, hey, hey.

What the hell did you do to her?

Just relax.

Honey, you okay?
Let her go right now.

Your daughter's
not going anywhere.

Claire, what are you...

You had one f*cking job.

Claire, what is going on?

He didn't do it.
Don't you get it?

We have no time now.
We have to move fast.

You promised
it wouldn't be like this.

Grab the remote control
off the table.

- Peter...
- Dad!

Get your f*cking hands off me.

Peter, you know what to do.

You want him to watch
his daughter suffer?

Peter, please, don't.

I'm sorry.

Hands in the air
right f*cking now!

Naomi, is that you?


Don't come any closer.

Shut your f*cking mouth.
I know what you did.

That was my son's father,
you piece of shit.

Dad, what is she talking about?

- Peter, now.
- No!


Intense music



It's okay. You're gonna be okay.

Come on.

It's all right.

It's okay.

Go get the door, okay?

Plaintive music

Dad, what are
you doing? Come on,

we have to get her
to a hospital right now.

Honey, sh...

she's not gonna make it
to a hospital.


- No, no, no, no...
- Ellie.

You don't have to watch this.


- Isaiah...
- It's okay.

It's okay.

Tell him...

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Tell him yourself.

Isaiah's not losing
his mom, too.


No. Eleanor!
