This is the fourth episode of Scatter Season 2
Thievery from the apothecary causes issues in the Yard. Distractions at the Construction site causes issues. Evan and Octavio discuss trust
Veneno Para Las Hadas Edit
Basil sets a large plank of wood on the sawhorse. He wipes the sweat from his brown and breathes heavily. His partner with the saw, Owen, looks over at him with a peculiar look on his face
Owen: You alright?
Basil: >breathing heavily< Yeah… why wouldn’t I be?
Owen: Well these things ain’t heavy. And you’re rather strong. There should be no reason you’re out of breath
Basil: >breathing heavily< I’m just… I’m worried about Fish and Garrett. And also getting yelled at by Ray is not something I want to do
Basil holds the other end of the plank while Owen measures the wood. After drawing a line, Basil measures it himself. He reassures Owen the line is right and Owen begins to saw right through the plank. It’s perfect. Basil brings the two halves over to Sylvester, Devin and Bailey near the trucks and tosses it into a pile
Bailey: Careful with those Basil. Don’t wanna fuck up anything
Basil: It’ll be fine, Bail!
Bailey turns back to Sylvester and Devin as Basil walks away
Bailey: Ugh. Can you believe him, Syl? Comes in late after skipping work yesterday and gives this shitty attitude
Sylvester: You could give him a break. We all have off days
Bailey: Were this back then, he would have been fired
Sylvester: That was then. This is now. Don’t dwell on the past
He bends over and picks up a piece of wood
Sylvester: Here, Dev. Put this in the truck for me, would ya?
Bailey: Don’t forget the past, either
Sylvester: We’re not doing this now
Bailey: You’re just afraid to admit it
Sylvester: Bailey, let’s not do this now
Bailey: Then when? Syl, Angelina is gone. You can be open to this now
Sylvester: With my deceased wife’s sister? And while my son is here?
Bailey: He’ll understand
Sylvester: I won’t do that to him. I won’t
Bailey: Where did you tell him you were two Fridays ago? Out with Warren and Paul?
Sylvester leans against the truck and looks down
Bailey: I thought so
Across the area, Sean, Gavin and Warren stand guard
Sean: See anything, Gav?
Warren: Y’all never told us. What was life like in the Yard?
Sean: It was normal to say the least. Not as beautiful as here. Not many houses. Mostly trailers
Warren: Social life? Work?
Gavin: Most jobs are runners, guards and the squads. I was on ‘A’ squad and Sean was a guard. We were pretty much set up into two separate camps. The other section was known as the Prisoner community or something. Sean and I were in the regular one
Warren: Prisoner community?
Gavin: Early on, it was Gregory, Brooks, The Murphys, Alex, Izabel, Nils, Lottie, Lewis, Colin, Liam, Nate Richardson and Myself, those of us in the ‘A’ squad more or less. We came across a… a prison. Freed the people inside so long as they would join us. If they refused, we shot them on sight. Had to do it once. You’d never expect how many prisoners fear death like us “normal folks”. They lived with us, but wanted their own community when we took over the Yard. Cleared it out, brought the trailers in and went about our ways. We even went into that Target before you guys did
Gavin: We uh… we lost a few inside. Alex and Liam barely got out alive. And then when we held Niklas captive, we lost Richardson as well.
Warren: Shit. Speaking of which, I’m gonna go take one. I’ll be back in a bit
In another area of the construction field, Cole and Train stand with Ray and Scott Cleary
Scott: You think they’re fitting in well around here, Ray?
Ray: You made the right call, Scott. Uh… Cole can you go help Ruben and Doug out there?
Cole: Yeah sure
Cole runs up to Doug and Ruben, who are struggling to pull a large chunk of siding from a section of the half built house. As they pull, Doug loses his footing and falls, scraping his arm along the way. He holds his hand up to it for a second, before pulling it away and exposing blood
Doug: Gaah! Fuck! Son of a… bitch
Ruben: Shit Doug! I’ll help patch you up inside Ray’s tent
Doug and Ruben walk into Ray’s tent and the latter begins patching the former up. While he wraps gauze around Doug’s arm, the pair hear a scream
Everyone looks sharply to the left into the tall grass as Warren comes stumbling out of the woods adjusting his belt as several walkers swarm up behind him. He stumbles and falls onto the grounds as one drops on top of him. He holds the walker at bay with his arm into its neck while another goes from his side. As he pushes it away, it drops dead from one bullet. Warren looks behind him as Sean lowers his gun
Sean: Walker inbound! Gavin! Sylvester! Help Warren, he needs assistance
Sylvester and Gavin run towards Warren and shoot down nearby walkers. Some come from the right as Ray and Train aim their guns at them. Warren attempts to reach for his knife, but it has been knocked away from his reach. He uses his strength to push the walker up with his arm and grabs his knife with his other hand, but his arm slips into the walker’s mouth as it bites down on him and tears away the flesh
He stabs the walker in the head and pulls the knife out, then backs away clutching his arm and hyperventilating
Warren: No no no no no. Gaahhh God no
He is oblivious to the walker coming closer to him, but is saved by Gavin, who shoots the upcoming walker and takes Warren away from the fight. He walks him to the tent and takes off his belt before wrapping it around Warren’s arm
Gavin: Ruben! Get me Owen’s saw.
Ruben runs out as Gavin squeezes Warren’s arm. Ruben runs in with the saw and Cole
Gavin: I’m gonna need you both to hold him down. This will hurt a lot
Sean hears Warren screams as the latter’s arm is cut off. Sean assists Bailey and Scott in taking out the last of the biters before all of them walk towards the tent. Gavin rushes it helping Warren move with Cole
Gavin: He passed out. Let’s get the fuck back home and bring him to Elizabeth
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Lewis walks out of Gregory’s trailer and is instantly met by Anthony
Anthony: What happened?
Lewis: He wants me in charge for the rest of the day
Anthony: That’s good right?
Lewis: Anything that happens happens on my watch
Anthony: Don’t think of it like that. Think of this as an opportunity to prove your worth
Just then, Fig runs up to Lewis
Fig: Lewis! Someone raided the apothecary earlier today. I checked inventory and several things were missing
Lewis: Such as?
Fig: Uh… acetaminophen, ibuprofen, codeine, tylenol. That’s it
Lewis: Okay thanks for letting me known. I’ll look into it
He runs over to Kevin
Kevin: What can I help you with, Lewis?
Lewis: I need your help finding medications
Over in the prison community, Stephanie Key walks up to Virginia, Annabelle and Arrowhead
Arrowhead: What can I do for ya, hun?
Stephanie: Not interested
Arrowhead: I can’t ask what I can do for you? You’ve never shown your face around these parts before, I’m rather interested
Annabelle: Don’t be a dick, Arrowhead. What brings you here, girly?
Stephanie: I’d like to get high. Really high
Virginia: I can help with that. Follow me
Virginia takes Stephanie into her tent and sits the girl down. She puts a needle in her hand and ties a string around her arm
Virginia: I must ask. Why you doing this?
Stephanie: Johnny and Richard raped me. I wanna forget
Virginia: Did they use protection?
Stephanie: No… I don’t think so at least
Virginia gives her a look
Stephanie: No they didn’t
Virginia: Ain’t you worried you’re pregnant?
Stephanie: I’ll deal with that later. I won’t bring a baby into this world. Can I have help? I’ve never done this before
Virginia sticks the needle into Stephanie’s arm and pushes heroin into the girl’s vein.
Stephanie: Thank you. Can you leave me alone in the tent, but stay outside?
Virginia: Sure thing, girly
Virginia complies. Stephanie takes out a water bottle and a bottle of codeine and pours all the pills in her hand. She takes every single pill and lies back with her eyes closed. She waits
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Logan: Rick! You got a minute?
Rick: Sure thing, Logan. How can I help you?
Logan: It’s your son, Chuck. I think he’s ready to learn how to use a gun. I wanted to run it by you first
Rick: Don’t you think it’s a father’s job to teach him
Logan: And that was the other thing. I wanted you to teach your son alongside me. And when Piper’s ready, the same
Rick thinks about it a minute
Rick: Alright. You’ve got yourself a deal
Logan: Tomorrow at noon then?
Elsewhere, in Tess’s room, Niklas puts his jeans back on and buttons them up. He puts his shirt on as well
Niklas: Well uh… that was enjoyable. We could do that again sometime
Tess: Sleep together?
Niklas: Yeah. We could make this a regular thing. If you want
Tess: What about… you know… sex?
Niklas: If you want. Sleep together can include sex. I’m open to it
He leans into her and kisses her on the lips
Niklas: I have to head home. They’ll be wondering where I am
Niklas leaves Tess’s room and heads downstairs. He is met by looks from Olivia, Meredith, Dex and Miranda
Meredith: Morning Niklas. Have a fun night?
Niklas stands with his mouth slightly open
Olivia: You gonna say something or let your mouth hang open?
Dex: Oh play nice, Olivia
Miranda: Did y’all have sex or not? That’s what she’s dancing around
Niklas: N…. No. We just slept all day together
Niklas walks out of Meredith’s house quickly and enters his own. There he finds Nathan and Luka comforting Lindsay on their couch
Nathan: Niklas. Hey
Niklas: What’s going on?
Lindsay: Matt… He didn’t come home. He’s dead
Nathan: We went to the mall… We lost Matt. And Tracy, Bentley and Tim West. It was rough
Luka: She needs some comforting now. We all do. I took the day off work. So did Eli
Out in the fields, Jasper struggles to work
Jasper: Mother fucker! God dammit Luka! He can’t do this right now
Harper: He took the day off because his Matt died. It’s rough. We all should have taken the day off
Jasper: The strawberries just started coming in. We’re not taking a day off. Deedee is working hard
Deedee: I just like gardening
In Jenny’s house, Eddie stands with Leo, Aaron and Otis
Jenny: So why won’t he come back?
Eddie: He’s fucked up since his brother died. He needs this
Leo: And what of Garrett? He’s one of my best men
Eddie: Stayed behind to help Fish through this
Aaron: I can go out looking for them
Eddie: No. Fish said he needs this
Otis: But we need them. If what Aaron says is true, it’s only a matter of time before Gregory and his people find us here. They could track us down to our home. We need to be ready
Jenny: He’s right. Eddie, I want you to join Leo and Aaron to bring Garrett and Fish back. We need to be ready for any attack
Eddie: I don’t think that’s a good idea. Fish needs time to mourn. He needs time
Jenny: He’s been given the time. By the time you find him it will have been two days. Now go. I want them found ASAP
Leo: C’mon Eddie. I’ll get the car
The three men walk out of Jenny’s house
Otis: I don’t like this, Jenny. It’s only a matter of time before they find us here
Jenny: Then beef up security. Take some people from the construction crew. Maybe Owen or Sylvester. Then take some other from elsewhere. If you want to be safe
The pair here yelling coming from outside Jenny’s house by the gates. The two rush to the door and see Sylvester run by with Gavin and Sean carrying Warren, whose arm has been chopped off towards the top. He appears to be unconscious. Cole rushes to Elizabeth’s door and holds it open for the others
Cole: Liz! Elizabeth! We need help! It’s Warren!
Elizabeth rushes out and orders Cole to grab the stretcher and put Warren on it. She sets up the machines and starts working on him
Elizabeth: Sylvester, I need you to cauterize the wound. Coel I need you next to me. Basil, I need you on the other side
Sean: What can I do?
Elizabeth: Take this. Keep it on his mouth and pump so he has continuous air flow
People from outside start flooding in. Miranda and Hannah stand and try to look in
Elizabeth: Gavin, I need you on crowd control
Gavin: Okay people! The doc needs space to do her job. Let’s just go back to wherever you came from
The people begin to disperse. Ruben, along with Ray, Owen, Train and Bailey, stand next to Otis and Jenny. Olivia runs up to them
Ruben: He went to use the restroom. He didn’t have his gun. He…. he got swarmed. It was crazy. I… I didn’t see it coming
Olivia: Who chopped off his arm?
Owen: Gavin. Said he had seen it before
Olivia: Did that to my brother as well. When Todd and Phillip got here, they chopped his arm off to keep his infection from spreading
Ruben: I just hope we did it in time
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Gregory sits in his trailer with Maine and Lewis. Brooks stands guard at the door
Gregory: Lewis told me you killed Richard
Maine: Yes. This is true
Gregory: He won his freedom when he killed Johnny in the ring. You were there. You know how the rules work
Maine: So fucking what? Richard’s death made an example. Johnny and Richard raped and beat Stephanie because of her sexuality. Those intolerant cunts got what they deserved
Brooks: It wasn’t your call to make
Maine: No one else would make it. So I took charge for once
Gregory: Lewis here says you gave a speech about your bisexuality after killing Richard
Maine: This is true
Gregory: So you killed him for personal gain, too? One less homophobe in the camp. I get it.
Gregory begins to ponder
Gregory: A group of people are going to search for the community from the Target by tracking from the mall. You’re going with them. It’ll be you, Brooks, Rick, Nils and Spencer. Get ready. Go
Lewis and Maine begin to walk out
Lewis: Gregory I…
Gregory: Save it
Brooks looks to Gregory as the others leave
Brooks: You want me to kill Maine on the journey?
Gregory: You don’t have to. Just make sure he doesn’t come back with you
Brooks exits the tent and looks to Spencer’s trailer. He motions for Maine to join him and the pair walk into Spencer’s trailer. Spencer, Nils, Taz and Izabel are already inside
Izabel: Why can’t I join you on this trip?
Nils: Gregory didn’t mention your name so…
Spencer: Plus, the less the better
Brooks: Maine’s joining us. Gregory’s orders. Where’s Rick?
Brooks: Let’s pick him up
Taz: Why is Maine joining you when I can't
Brooks: Gregory's orders
Brooks, Nils and Spencer walk out of Spencer’s trailer and into Rick’s. The five then walk over to the SUV and drive off towards the mall. Lewis watches them leave and has a strange feeling in his gut. Elsewhere, Virginia starts to worry about Stephanie. The girl has been in her tent for an hour or so. Maybe more. Virginia does not know. Nobody keeps a watch or clock around. They just estimate. She passes time talking with Miguelito
Miguelito: I don’t understand it. Why did she want heroin?
Virginia: I uh… I don’t know. Maybe she wanted to experiment in this new world
Miguelito: How long you say she was in there for?
Virginia: Maybe an hour
Miguelito: You should check on her. I’m gonna head back to my tent and have a nap. I’ll see you around
The pair separate. Virginia heads into the tent. By this time, the heroin and the OTC drugs have mixed in her system. This caused her to go into cardiac arrest and die within the hour. It took no time at all for the reanimation process to start. Having heard no noise nor smelled any blood, the reanimated corpse of Stephanie has stayed inside the tent for two minutes after waking up. It is hungry, but does not have to wait long. The tent flaps open as Virginia walks in to assist the other girl. As Virginia shakes Stephanie, the undead girl lunges at the Virginia and lands on top of her. Before Virginia can make a sound, the undead Stephanie bites into Virginia’s jugular. She gnaws on her flesh for around 25 minutes before hearing other voices outside. She stands up and shambles her way out of the tent. She drops to the ground after tripping on Virginia’s legs and dropping to the ground. Another member of the prison community runs up to help her
“Hun, are you alright?”
The undead Stephanie attacks this other man and bites down on his arm. He screams in pain. His screams draw attention throughout the camp. Other survivors come rushing out. Fig and Annabelle run towards the scene with Lewis and Max close by.
A large circle crowds around the scene. No one wants to do anything, they all just stand there scared. Finally, Stephanie looks up at the crowd and Lewis takes out his gun. He shoots two bullets. One at Stephanie’s head, and one in the head of the other survivor. Other people look at him, some with tears in their eyes
Lewis: Someone check the tents. Be careful, too
Anthony walks into Virginia’s tent and looks around. He sees Virginia’s corpse, which instantly lunges at him and bites him on the arm, tearing a small part of skin. Out of anger, he stabs Virginia in the head repeatedly. Shaking, he covers up his arm with his sleeve and walks out
Anthony: Virginia’s dead
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Todd sits on Annie’s couch. He stares a bit off into space, but looks back at Annie
Annie: What’s on your mind?
Todd: Nothing. Well, it’s just…. We’ve lost so many people. Now Bentley, Matt, Tracy, Tim. Garrett and Fish left. We’re losing too many people
Annie: Don’t think like that
Todd: How else am I supposed to think about it, Annie?
Annie: You don’t have to think about it. Put your mind elsewhere
Todd: Where else can it go? After everyone we’ve lost? Hell, after everyone even Phillip and i lost. I still can’t forget Mark… and Luke… and Rain. After everything.
Annie: Don’t think about people we’ve lost. Think about who is here now. Think about us
She kisses him
Annie: I know I am
She takes his hand and lifts him off the couch. The pair walk to the bedroom. Elsewhere, Phillip and Dimitri sit down in Dimitri’s house. The pair sit on his couch and drink scotch that Dimitri had lying around. They hear a knock on the door
Dimitri: Come in! It’s unlocked
The pair watch as Scott Cleary walks in
Phillip: Oh hey, Scott!
Scott: How are you guys?
Dimitri: Dandy. Want some brandy?
Phillip: I thought this was scotch
Dimitri: I wanted to rhyme
Scott: I’ll take some scotch if you’re offering
Scott sits down across from the pair as Dimitri grabs another glass and pours in some scotch
Phillip: What brings you here?
Scott: You heard about what happened to Warren?
Phillip: No. What happened?
Scott: He got bit. Figured a few of us would tell folks. He’s in Doctor Hill’s office right now. We chopped off his arm
Phillip: Like with Matt
Scott: Exactly. We hope he survives. It’s pretty bad
Dimitri: Thank you uh… thank you for telling us. You’re welcome to stay and drink a bit more if you want
Scott: I’ll have this glass and then I got to head out
Scott drinks half the glass and continues to stare off
Scott: We’ve lost too many too soon. Eddie, Leo and Aaron went to find Garrett and Fish. Bring them back here
Elsewhere, on the way back to Apex, Evan and Octavio keep watch in the night
Evan: What are you thinking about this guy, Octavio?
Octavio: I think he’s alright
Evan: You don’t think he might trick us?
Octavio: I think he’s telling the truth. When we found him, he was running from the mall. He could have attacked us but he didn’t
Evan: That doesn’t mean he’s a good man
Octavio: But it does mean that he isn’t stupid. Stupid gets you killed
Evan: So does being alone
Octavio: You lasted fine
Evan: For the first few days. Before you all found me. If we got separated… I don’t know if I’d make it
Octavio: It won’t come to that. Trust me
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Inside Elizabeth’s office, she, Cole, Train, Basil and Sean stand alongside Warren’s unconscious body on the stretcher. She puts her fingers to his throat, then puts her ear to his chest. She gets up and sighs
Elizabeth: It’s late. You all should go home and rest. Train, I think it’s your turn to take watch
Basil: What about Warren?
Elizabeth: I’ll take care of him
The men walk outside of her office and head to their homes. Train walks up to the guard tower
Train: Lysander. I’m here to take your shift
Lysander climbs down the ladder and hands the rifle to Train
Lysander: Been quiet out there
Train: That means nothing
Train climbs up the ladder. A few hundred yards outside of Apex, Brooks, Spencer, Rick Murphy, Nils and Maine watch Train take watch
Rick: We found it
Brooks: Let’s get back to camp
Spencer: I’ll get the truck
Brooks: It’ll be too loud. We all need to run together
The five run for a half mile and enter the truck. Brooks stops Maine outside the truck
Brooks: Sorry bud. This is from Gregory, so, no hard feelings
Maine gives him a puzzled look as he is shot in the gut and left on the ground. Brooks hops in the truck as Rick drives off. Maine, still alive, claws his way towards Apex
