INT. SHERIFF STATION -- BASEMENT HALLWAY -- MORNING
GALE and SHERIFF confer in the hallway outside the questioning room while ZEKE shuffles down the hall and exits.
GALEBob, I don’t think Albert is the killer.SHERIFFWhat?GALEYou heard it from Gruffydd. He told us last night that Llewellyn is the killer, working through a human host. But he couldn’t sense Llewellyn in Albert. It can’t be him. We have to find out who Llewellyn is working through, then we’ll have our killer.SHERIFFAgent Gale, I’ve been willing to follow you on this crazy dream stuff so far, but we’ve got solid evidence against Albert. His fingerprints were all over that basement, including the murder weapons. Everything points to him as the murderer. I can’t just let him go on the say-so of a senile old man.GALESheriff, you’re absolutely right. This is your backyard and you’ve got to go with your instincts. Sometimes an outsider can forget that.
Gale walks off down the hall and exits. Sheriff leans against the wall.

NICHOLAS and PENNY are taking a walk.
PENNYIt’s such a beautiful day. The air is so crisp. I can’t believe that it was a week ago that we saw Millicent for the last time. So much has happened.NICHOLASYeah. We got in to so much stuff because of her. And I don’t think we even really knew her. I’ve been wondering what kinds of secrets she had. Now we’ll never know.PENNYI loved her like she was my sister. But I don’t know that I’m sorry she’s gone. Isn’t that awful?NICHOLASAwful? Nah. Loving her was a strain. She made it that way. Now, it’s natural to feel relief. I’m not sorry she’s gone, though. I think she was keeping us apart.PENNYNicholas...NICHOLASAnd when she died, it made me realize--BRADLEY (O.S.)Grey! I’ve been looking for you!PENNYOh, no.
NICHOLASWhat do you want?BRADLEYHey, it’s cool. I realize we haven’t been on the best of terms, but I just want to talk. About Millicent.NICHOLASOkay.BRADLEYYeah, well, I heard about Cartwright getting busted for selling drugs, and that you guys were double-crossing him. What I mean is, is it true about Millicent? That she was selling, too?NICHOLASYeah.BRADLEYYeah, you think you know somebody...PENNYI’m sorry, Bradley. It was hard on all of us.NICHOLASI never really loved her, man. I was just trying to save her from Duane. And from herself. I guess I figured you two would just work it out eventually. I didn’t mean to give you any grief.PENNYMillicent really did care for you, Bradley. Please believe that. I think I knew her better than anyone. Better than she thought I did. She loved you, and that’s why she didn’t want you to know what she had gotten into.BRADLEYYeah. Thanks. You know, Grey, maybe I was wrong about you. You’re all right.NICHOLASThanks, man.

JANETLove you. Bye.ALANWho were you calling?JANETOh, just my sister. She wants me to go shopping with her today.ALANOf course you said no.JANETI’m sorry, dearest. I really must. But I’ll pick up a few items that you’ll like.ALANOh?JANETSomething in black lace, for one. Maybe a little leather. Something naughty.ALANI like your style.JANETOh, Alan, I love you.

And without question the best lover.JANETAlan, I want to be your wife.ALAN(parting from her)Ah.JANETIt’s been so long since your wife left you. You must get--ALANJanet, we have the perfect relationship. Why spoil it?JANETBut it would enrich our lives. The trust, the intimacy...ALANThe bother, the expense...JANETAlan, I want the special rewards that come from a loving marriage, and there’s no one I love as devotedly and passionately as I--ALANJanet, I don’t think it would be a good idea. I’ve been married. I know the pain and the trouble it can be. And we’re so happy as we are now.JANETAlan, do you remember when we first met, and the affair we had before I left Twinsburg?ALANHow could I forget? I still have all your letters in my safe.JANETWell, something more came out of that affair than love letters.ALANWhat are you saying?JANETI had a child, Alan. Your son.ALANWhat?JANETYes, he’s in England at this very moment. He’s older than Duane, you know. By more than a year. Your first-born son. And far from being a delinquent, he’s in one of England’s finer public schools.ALANHow did you manage that? No, don’t answer.JANETHe’s a model citizen, and one shrewd businessman. You’d like him.ALANAssuming this is true--JANETOh, it’s true. But I swear to you, Alan, you’ll never meet him unless we are married.ALANI see. So you’ll use our son to blackmail me.JANETNo, no, no, Alan, no. You don’t understand. I don’t want him to get hurt. I haven’t told him about you. It’s so perfect, Alan.

LYNDONI’m going to go home and get ready for my mother coming over. We’re going to Leigh’s this evening, to sort through her things.SHERIFFSure thing, Lyndon. Thanks for coming in this morning. How is your mother holding up?LYNDONShe took the news pretty hard. But Abigail was a big help. She’s helping me make dinner tonight, too. I’m not much of a cook.SHERIFFThat’s great, Lyndon. I’ll see you, then.LYNDONBye.
GALE comes out of the conference room as Lyndon exits.
GALEBradley, good to see you. Let’s talk.
INT. SHERIFF STATION -- CONFERENCE ROOM -- MORNING
BRADLEY is seated at the table. SHERIFF stands by the window. GALE produces Millicent’s diary and drops it on the table.
GALEYou know what this is?BRADLEYA diary.GALEThat’s right. Bradley, I think it’s time you told us the truth about what happened between you and Millicent last Saturday night.BRADLEYAll right. But it wasn’t anything new. Not really. Millicent talked all the time about wanting us to blow out of town and elope. I didn’t think it was such a hot idea, naturally.GALEYou believe in the benefits of a good education?BRADLEYI don’t want to end up in some crap job like my old man. So, I’d talk her out of it. But she’d always bring it up again. She thought it would be exciting or dangerous or something. Anyway, that was before she started seeing Nicholas Grey. That really ticked me off. And she really knew how to work it, you know? Anyway, after the dance, we went to the park. She liked making out in the gazebo there.GALEBut she had other things on her mind, didn’t she?BRADLEYShe told me she was leaving town the next morning, with or without me. This time, I knew she meant it. She had eyes like an animal on the run. Something spooked her seriously. I tried to calm her down, but she told me that if I didn’t come, she’d take Nicholas instead. Boy, I almost blew up, but I told her I’d do it. I thought I could come up with something once we were on the road and she had a chance to chill out. I was supposed to pick her up for church in the morning, and we’d just take off. But, of course...SHERIFFBradley, why didn’t you just tell us all this in the first place?BRADLEYHey, man, I loved her. I didn’t think it would be right. Don’t rag on the dead, you know. But when I found out she was selling drugs, man, I don’t know what’s right anymore.GALEThank you, Bradley. Your honesty has been helpful.

MEGAN is seated at the table. GALE pours himself a cup of coffee.
MEGANI feel a little silly. I mean, I wouldn’t normally bother you with it. After all, how important could a dream be, no matter how disturbing it was?GALEDon’t discount the importance of dreams, Megan. Sometimes they reveal things we are not otherwise aware of.MEGANRight, well, I was at Rosemary’s this morning, when this weird lady came in with a ratty old cardboard box. She told me to deliver the message, so here I am. I mean, it was just too creepy.GALEMegan, this could be very important. Tell me everything that you can remember.MEGANOkay. I saw Millicent, and she was wearing a formal gown, like she’d wear at the school dance. Only, she was in the woods, and running. She was being chased by something, a huge shadow. And wherever the shadow would fall across her, it drew blood. But she kept running. Then, she came up to this enormous stone wall. I mean, it stretched forever in all directions. The shadow came up to her and turned into a person.GALEWho? Were you able to recognize them?MEGANNo, it was weird. It was like it was a man and a woman at the same time. Anyway, he, she, or it -- whatever it was -- was dark and evil, and it tried to get inside Millicent, but she wouldn’t let it in. Then, it just grabbed her and ripped her apart. It was awful.GALEMegan, thank you for sharing that with me.
Megan tries to get a hold of herself. Gale takes a sip of coffee and squints.

GALE(looking out the windshield)Maple trees...SHERIFFIt must have been horrible for Tuppence to have to live with someone as twisted as Albert. What he must have put her through...GALEI’m not so sure.SHERIFFWhat do you mean? That business about Llewellyn?GALESheriff, after our disagreement this morning, I did a little checking up on Albert’s activities lately.SHERIFFOh?GALEFirst, I determined that the Feast of the Leviathan that Professor Saltares spoke of began on the third Sunday of last month. This means Millicent’s initiation took place during the second week of January, three nights of which the moon was full.SHERIFFOkay.GALEHowever, Albert was apparently on a business trip that entire week with Alan Cartwright in Albuquerque, New Mexico.SHERIFFThat’s right. I remember now. But that means that he couldn’t be the cult leader after all.GALEPrecisely what I first suspected when Gruffydd could not identify him.SHERIFFRight. I guess I owe you an apology.GALEForget it, Bob. I realize my methods in this case have been somewhat unorthodox.SHERIFFYou can say that again. But where do we go from here?GALEI think we should release Professor Saltares and keep him under surveillance. I have a feeling he may lead us straight to the cult leader, whomever that may be.SHERIFFAll right. But I think I’ll keep Albert in a little while longer, just to be on the safe side.

SHERIFFAll right, Albert. I want you to tell us what’s going on.ALBERTYes. Yes. I was trying to keep things from getting worse. But it was too late...GALEI think you’d better start at the beginning.ALBERTYes. I’m sorry. I just need to collect my thoughts. Everything seems to be spinning. It’s all moving so fast...SHERIFFJust take it easy and tell us from the beginning. No hurry.ALBERTRight. Yes. It’s Tuppence. Bob, Agent Gale, she’s not well. She suffers from periodic bouts of insanity. It’s been going on ever since we went on a camping trip deep into Shadygrove woods...GALEWhen was that?ALBERTIt must have been about ten years ago. Seems like a lifetime ago.SHERIFFWhat sort of insanity?ALBERTIt mostly affects her during full moons. She’d just lose control of herself, even becoming violent. She’d run off into the woods for days at a time. When the full moon ended, she’d come back.GALELyncanthropy.ALBERTI did what I could for Millicent. I tried to keep her from knowing what was really going on, but she knew something was wrong. She knew. Tuppence began doing... things during her fits. Horrible things. So, I started keeping her in the basement. But she’d escape, so I had to chain her to the wall. And when she got too strong for even that, I had to drug her. But it didn’t always work. Eventually, Millicent snuck unto the basement when Tuppence was down there. Well, what was she supposed to think, poor girl? She released Tuppence, you see, but she attacked Millicent and beat her up. After that, our marriage just seemed to disintegrate. Tuppence wasn’t the same, even when she was in control.SHERIFFBut you couldn’t get custody, even after all that?ALBERTI didn’t have any proof. And I didn’t want to make Tuppence out to be some kind of monster. She’s just sick, she needs help. And I still love her.GALEAlbert, what happened on Thursday night?ALBERTWith all that’s happened, I was afraid that Tuppence was completely out of control. I went over to find her, but she was gone. There was a car in the driveway, though, that I didn’t recognize. It must have belonged to that poor girl, Leigh. I spent the night searching all over for Tuppence, and I finally caught her coming out of the woods just before dawn. I gave her the drug and chained her in the basement. I didn’t know what else to do.SHERIFFAll right, Albert.2ND DEPUTY (V.O.)(on the intercom)Sheriff, you have an urgent call from Doctor Terrence. Line one.SHERIFFCome on, Albert.
