This is the eleventh episode of Scatter Season 2, and the penultimate episode of the season
Logan's past catches up with him. The survivors from Apex find themselves in the middle of another groups's struggle. Kevin and Samuel find survivors
Stars Die Edit
Emil turns and looks at Cassius with a puzzled look on his face. His mouth is open slightly as he looks down to David Blair’s corpse, then back at Cassius. He backhands him on the shoulder
Emil: What the fuck man? We were only supposed to kill Kevin and Kayleigh
Cassius: No witnesses
Cassius: Can’t have any witnesses. He saw us
Emil: He didn’t know us. He didn’t have to die
Cassius: I made a decision. Can’t go back now. Besides, we need to go back and give Ronnie the okay. Ryan should be all set and will be waiting for us. Big Kevin will be turning any minute now
The pair put the safety on their guns and walk out of the infirmary. The infirmary is quiet for a while before Kayleigh raises herself up by grabbing the table in front of her. Blood trickles down her leg as she limps over to the supply closet to find gauze. She hears the door on the other side of the room click open and stands in fear. It is Dr. Harris and Dimitri. They walk in and looks upon David and Kevin’s dead bodies
Dimitri: What the fuck?
The pair hear Kayleigh struggle to steady herself and knock a bottle of acetaminophen off the shelf and onto the ground. Harris runs up to her and catches her as she falls. He places her on one of the beds
Richard: What happened?
Kayleigh: >breathing heavily< Cassius and Emil…. They came in… And they killed. I overheard that Ryan and Ronnie are with them.
Dimitri: We have to warn everyone
Richard: No. Right now, I need to help Kayleigh, and I need your help to guard this place. They might come back. And they won’t kill me. You armed?
Dimitri: >breathing heavily< Yeah
Dimitri checks his weapon. It’s fully loaded. He stands guard at the door on the side
In the road, Kevin and Samuel Tollett walk with Kevin slightly ahead of Samuel. They reach a large building. An elementary school known as North Chatham Elementary. Kevin looks at Samuel and starts to walk towards the building
Samuel: Kevin. I don’t trust this
Kevin: It’s a building. A school. They’ve gotta have supplies in there. We’re low on food
Samuel: You don’t have to tell me. We should have just gone back to the Yard
Kevin: Apex won, Sam. There would little to nothing left if we returned
Samuel: People stayed behind. Lewis. Anthony. Julian. James. Adam. People stayed
Kevin: If you really wanted to go back, why didn’t you?
Samuel: I was scared. Maybe you were, too. I’m not a fighter. I saw Spencer get shot from above and I panicked. I ran away. And if Gregory knew that, then I would have not been allowed to stay. And you ran too. You’d have no place either
Kevin: >breathes in< Fuck you, Sam
Kevin opens the door to the school and steps inside. It’s cold; that’s the first thing he notices. He hears a noise coming from a room down the hall. Samuel follows him inside. Kevin walks up to the door where he hears the noise. It sounds like people talking. Kevin turns the knob and opens the door. He looks to his right and sees two tall men sitting on desks. One is black and the other is white. They each have adhesives covering marks on their heads. They stop their conversations and look at Kevin, who stares back. The black man gets off the desk and looks at Kevin
“What can I do for you, son?”
Kevin: Kevin. My name’s Kevin. My companion is Sam
The black man looks back at his friend, who adjusts his seating on the desk. He turns back to Kevin
“Well, Kevin, my name is Cole. My friend here is Basil”
Kevin: What happened to your heads?
Cole: He and I were in a car accident coming back from our construction site. Our driver, she…. She got shot in the head by people who attacked our home and we crashed. Basil crawled out first and grabbed me, and we limped away
Kevin stares, stunned. Samuel walks up behind him and looks at the two
Kevin: Where… where was your home?
Basil: A housing complex in Apex. Word was that some people were not too fond of our folks down at this Target. Led by a man named Gregory. Guy sounded like a psycho
Kevin looks to Samuel, who looks back
Samuel: We um… we were part of that group. Part of the attack actually
Cole: You what?
Basil reaches for his gun on the desk
Cole: Calm down, Basil. Let’s talk this out first
Meanwhile, in Waterfront, Chester heard the gunshots coming from Shoshana’s room. He runs up the stairs, followed closely by Phillip, Leo and the others. He reaches her room to find the door open. Others make their way up the stairs, including Reina and Jackson
He runs up to her and swivels her chair around. He sees she is already dead. On the ground, the body of Sean begins to move. It stands up and moves its way towards Chester. It lunges at him, but is shot in the head. Chester turns and sees Phillip holding his gun aimed at the dead undead advisor
Leo: What happened?
The group begin to hear shots coming from outside the building. Chester looks outside and sees a group of people firing guns
Chester: We’re under attack. Stay here
Chester makes his way down the stairs and begins to walk to the door. He turns when he hears Cal stepping out from the dark corner of the building
Cal swings a bat at Chester and hits him as Chester blocks his head. It knocks the latter back. Cal grins and licks his lips as he knees Chester in the crotch and sits on top of him. He begins to choke him. Chester claws at his attacker’s arms and face, but is unable to do anything. He begins to choke and gasp for air. Suddenly, Cal is shot three times and loosens his grip. Chester gasps for air as a hand reaches down to pick him up. He grabs Leo’s hand and is hoisted up. He looks to the left and sees Reina, shaking and holding her gun. She lowers it and begins to put it away
She looks at him
Jackson: Don’t forget the safety
She clicks the safety and puts her gun back in its holster on her waist. The group prepare to head outside. Out on the guard towers, Paul stands with Chuck. They have heard the shots but do not know where they came from. Chuck stands smiling
Paul: What’s going on, Chuck
Paul: You’re smiling. You know what’s happening
Chuck turns and sees Judas leading a group of 15 rebels through the streets. Chuck pushes his tongue up on his top row of teeth looks left at Paul. He aims at Paul
Chuck: Sorry, kid
Chuck shoots Paul in the chest as he drops off the platform and onto the ground. He watches him fall and looks at the group below him that look back at him. Realizing his mistake, he takes aim at one of them. Leo. He aims and is instantly shot by Jackson with three shots from his rifle. Chuck drops from platform as well. Ciara runs to Paul
Ciara: He’s alive
Nathan: I’ll take him to the infirmary. I remember where it is
Nathan picks up Paul and runs to the infirmary. Phillip watches him leave and looks at the direction the gunfire is coming from
Phillip: C’mon guys. We should help
Inside the half built church at about 12:15 am, Rick Conrad stands up and brushes his hands off on his jeans. He rubs his eyes and looks over at the corpse of Logan Schiff. As he rubs his eyes, images of his actions flash before him. He still couldn’t believe it. He imagines what his son’s last moments were. Screaming for help as he burned alive? Died of asphyxiation due to smoke inhalation? How long was he still alive for? Could he have jumped in and saved his son from the burning schoolhouse?. Tears begin to stream down his face. He walks out of the building and down the steps into the road. A figure comes quickly at him from the distance. It is Lysander. He jogs up and approaches Rick
Lysander: What’s wrong, Rick?
Rick: What are you doing here?
Lysander: Out for my daily jog. Too hot during the day, so I go at night. What’s wrong?
Rick: Oh nothing just… dealing with some things in the church. Things pertaining to my son
Rick: Dealing with. Related to
Lysander: Never heard that in my life. Where did you learn it?
Rick: I was an English teacher. You knew that
Lysander: Kind of forgot. Never liked English in High School. It was all about Cross Country. And Psychology. That’s why I became a therapist. I liked to help with people’s problems. Speaking of which, if you ever need a friend… I’m here for you, Rick
Rick: Thank you Lysander, but I think what I need is a good night’s sleep
The two part ways and head in opposite direction. Rick opens his door and steps inside. In the next house over, Ray walks up from the kitchen to the second floor. He passes the first room on the right and looks in. He steps onto the carpet and looks at the first photo on the dresser. He wipes a tear from his eye as he looks at the picture. It is of him as a foreman with three of his best workers: Scott Cleary, Ruben Eastview and Warren Smith. The picture next to it is of Warren and his late wife. He whispers to the pictures
Ray: >whispers< I’m sorry
He turns and walks out of the room and towards his own at the end of the hall. The door on the left is closed, but he can hear music coming from it. He knocks before entering
Ray: Scotty, you still up? What for?
Scott: Music, obviously
Ray: Porcupine Tree again? Do you listen to anything else?
Scott: Of course. The Pineapple Thief, Radiohead, Metallica, Alice in Chains. Diverse rock music. Only some things I can’t get for the vinyl. Right now I’ve got Signify in
Ray: Okay well, could you turn it down a bit? I’m gonna go to bed
He turns and exits the room, shutting the door. Scott moves towards the vinyl player as the song begins to get quieter. “Waiting for the day when I will crawl away”. He sits back on his bed and picks the book off the nightstand. It’s says Durango Street on the spine. Inside Jenny’s house, Niklas and Tess still sleep near each other, with the door separating the two. Jenny sleeps in her own bed with the sheets thrown to the side. She can not sleep. She has been fighting with what to do about Niklas and Nils. Todd and Eli have since left and walked back home. In Elizabeth’s office, Nils sits up uncomfortably on the table. He looks at the eyes staring at him
Nils: What happened?
Ruben: Niklas stabbed you. He wants you dead
Nils: >sighs< I assume it’s because of the torture he dealt with in the Yard. Am I it?
Izabel: No. I’m on it as well. Gregory and Brooks as well. Alex and Anthony were, too
Nils: And Will?
Will: You guys left me to die. I’ve been here since. They take care of me. And Maine
Lewis: Did you see where he went?
Will: Laundromat. He said he’d be there doing laundry
Lewis walks out of the office and towards the laundromat. Aaron and Matt decide to leave as well. Will follows them out to leave Nils and Izabel alone for a little
Aaron: What’s his issue?
Will: He and Maine have had issues since Maine killed Richard on Lewis’s watch. He had to report to Gregory. Name’s Will by the way. Will Knight. I’ve been sitting here for a while so I don’t know if we ever met
Aaron: Aaron Meyer. And this is Matt Graham
Will goes to shake Matt’s hand before realizing it would be impossible. He starts to sweat and feel embarrassed
Will: Oh geez. I’m sorry
Matt: It’s quite alright. I feel a bit awkward myself
Will: How long?
Matt: I really haven’t been keeping track. Todd cut it off and saved me. However long he’s been here. Where’re you staying?
Will: I’m not. I’ve been sleeping on that fucking bed since I’ve been here
Matt: I’ll find you a place in my house
Judas leads several people through the streets of Waterfront. He motions to two men, Ivan and Ronnie, who head towards the bell tower. Ivan, the bigger man, knocks the door down with one swift kick and enters. Ronnie, carrying an M40A3, rushes up to the clock tower. Ivan, hearing a noise, sees a man cowering in the corner. It is Wesley, who works daily in the bell tower. His hearing has been ruined after years working in the tower. He runs away from Ivan, but the bigger man grabs hold of him
Wesley: Please. Ivan please
Ivan: Sorry. No witnesses
Ivan picks Wesley up by his neck and begins to choke with his left hand. He tightens a fist with his right and savagely beats Wesley’s face in until there is nothing left. He then drops Wesley’s body to the floor and follows Ronnie to the top of the tower. The pair looks down onto the street
Ronnie: They look like ants
Ivan: You sure you can pick some off from here?
Ronnie: USMC. I can hit a saltine from 500 yards if you want me to
Ivan: Why would I want to do that?
Ronnie: Just saying. I’m good
He aims through the scope and fires a shot before turning back and looking at Ivan
Down in the streets, Judas leads the rest of his followers throughout town. Cassius and Emil have since joined them, bringing the total group in the streets to 15 members. Several people run in the streets and are fired on, but it is so dark that it is hard to see perfectly. One man in the front trips on one of the dead bodies.
Judas: Watch yourselves
He looks down at the body one of his followers tripped on. Charlie, dressed in nothing but a bathrobe
Judas: Sorry Charlie
The group continue to push until they arrive at the cafeteria. One member kicks the door open and is instantly shot by Stan
Judas: Flank! Go around. Cas, Emil; you know where to go
Cas and Emil head north to the bunker with another rebel. Inside the infirmary, Nathan is allowed in by Dimitri, carrying an injured Paul Daniels
Nathan: He’s been shot
Richard: Put him here
Richard leans over Paul’s unconscious body and checks him. The bullet did not go through. To the north, Cas leads the other two to the bunker. He stands on one side while Emil stands on the other. He motions for the third rebel to go in. He kicks the door down and the three enter. The third rebel is instantly shot several times and a voice is heard from the gunman
“You’re fucking surrounded! Guns on the ground now!”
Cas looks to Emil, who is frightened
Emil: I’ve never been scared, Cas. But I am now. Let’s do it
The pair put their guns on the ground as several soldiers, including Vazquez and Barney, step forward
Barney: Good shooting, Nate
Nate: Thank’s Barney. Take them to Shoshana
Emil: She’s dead
The group looks at him
Emil: It was Judas’s orders. Kill Shoshana, Kevin, Chester and other opposition until he was in charge
Cas: Ryan Hart. Calls himself Judas now
Nate: Where is he now?
Nate looks back at the others
Nate: Barney, Vazquez. Let’s go see Judas. The rest of you take care of these two
The three run off. They are immediately shot at by Ronnie in the tower. They fire back, but it is someone in Phillip’s group that kills the man, who falls from the tower to his death. Meanwhile, in the Yard, Gregory cleans his gun in his trailer. Rick Conrad stand near him and talks to him. His words fall on deaf ears, and Gregory continues to clean his gun with no movement towards his lieutenant. Finally, Gregory speaks
Gregory: I’m sorry Rick, but I do not care right now. You can tell them that. I know they’re outside. Go
Rick walks outside in a huff and looks upon the crowd gathered at Gregory’s trailer. Only about 20 survivors remain at the Yard
Rick: He didn’t listen to me
The group continues to yell in anger
Rick: Hey hey Hey! One at a time. And keep your voices down, biters could be anywhere. Yes, Adam
Adam: What did you say to him?
Rick: I told him how angry you all were and that we need answers.
Adam: And what did he do?
Rick: He just… He just kept cleaning his gun. Jane
Jane: Are we safe?
Rick: We’re still as safe as ever. We’ve always got guards
Ocean: Are we safe from him? He’s insane
Rick: He’s not insane. He’s hurting. One of his most trusted tried to kill him. A few days ago, two people he trusted fled. Before that, he lost several of us at Apex and back here. And now you wish to leave. This is hurting him. He’s a person, just like us. And he needs our help to keep him sane. Alrighty. Now, off to sleep. We have a big day tomorrow.
The group disperse. In his trailer, Gregory wipes a few tears, having heard Rick’s speech. In Apex, Maine sits on a bench staring off into space when Lewis comes up to him
Maine: Go away
Lewis: Are you gonna stay out here all night? At least come inside where it’s warm
Maine: I’m fine. Now go away
Lewis: We need to
Maine: We don’t need to do anything now leave me the hell alone
Lewis: You’ve changed. You’ve become a real f-.... A real asshole, you know that
Maine: Go ahead. Go ahead say it. I know you want to. … Say it!
Maine: If I was straight you’d say it. I know you would
Lewis: I wouldn’t say it at all
Maine: Stop trying to be the nice guy everyone loves. You can’t please everyone. Now. Leave me the fuck alone and never speak to me again
Lewis turns and walks away, leaving Maine alone on the bench
Nate’s group meets up with Phillip’s
Nate: Nice shooting there, whoever did it. Name’s Nate Demarco. I’m from the Cedar Island outpost
Phillip: Phillip James from Apex
Vazquez: We can do introductions later. Now we need to get into the café and take care of Judas
The group stack up at the door before kicking it in. They are surprised to see a pile of dead bodies on the ground and two held with guns to their head
Marla: Nate. Please tell me you’re not part of the rebellion
Nate: No Marla I’m not. Did you all take care of them yourself?
Blake: Was not so bad. There were only 14 of them. Most of them couldn’t shoot very well
Barney: And Judas? I mean Ryan
Stan: Already dead. So much for a rebellion after all. I'll take you to the infirmary, Arnold
Milo comes in with two others holding Ivan
Milo: He was in the bell tower. Killed Wesley. He’s part of the rebellion
Leo: It’s over. They took care of it
Miranda: So what are we gonna do?
Chester: We thank you for your help. I know Shoshana’s dead, but I think we can still discuss terms of trade between our 2 communities. Someone help me with these three?
Sebastián and Leo help Chester and the others take care of Ivan and the two rebels
Chester: We’ll question them tomorrow. For now, let’s take care of the dead
Meanwhile, in Annie’s house, Todd, Annie and Taylor sit on a couch across from Eli, Dex and Oliver
Oliver: And so he said “How do you think I rang the doorbell?”
The men laugh while the two women groan or roll their eyes
Dex: Oh come on. That was funny
Taylor: Typical men. At least he could compensate
Oliver: Dex not pleasing you some nights, Taylor?
Taylor: Dex, I thought you wouldn’t tell!
Dex: No strings attached you said. And Oliver’s one of my best friends
The group hear a clanging
Annie: >sighs< Probably Harper’s cat again. I’ll shoo it away
Todd: Be careful
Annie: Always am
She walks out the door and heads to the back of the house. She checks the trash cans and sees Harper’s cat, Bananas. It wasn’t hers, but the animal made its way into Apex and found Harper. The two have been pretty much inseparable since. Except for when Harper sleeps. At that point, Bananas leaves the house freely to hunt
Annie: Oh come on you. Shoo
The cat runs off as Annie sighs and turns around and begins to head back to the front door. She turns right into an undead Logan, who proceeds to bite into her neck and tear out her vocal chords. She is able to pull out her knife and with the little bit of strength she has left, she stabs Logan in the head before dropping back onto her house and sliding down the wall, breathing heavily. She strokes her neck and moves her hand down her shirt, repainting the white with streaks of red. She finally loses all her strength and dies. It takes all of twenty seconds, but she soon blinks her eyes and reveals the color has changed to a faded yellow. Her bloody hand twinges and she forces herself up. Her breathing is raspy as she heads for the streets. Across the way, she sees Maine Ryan, sleeping alone on a bench
