Sam: Grace, it breaks my heart that your last words were filled with such dread.

Noah: Dad.

Sam: Son, Paloma.

Paloma: Noah, maybe we should wait.

Noah: Look, we need to talk to you about something, something that should have come out a long time ago.

Simone: Jessica, now that you're back home, just stay here. Don't go back to Spike. Stay with your father and your brother who love you.

Jessica: No. I can't leave Spike. If I tried, he'd turn me in for killing all those johns, and I won't let that happen. I just want to pack a few more things, then I'm going home to my husband.

Simone: What? Back to that rat trap? Please, and back to drugs and prostitution and abuse? No. If you don't leave Spike, he's going to be the death of you.

Spike: A storm's coming.

Blackmailer: [Laughs] The storm is here. Now, is that all of them?

Spike: Hmm. You know, I don't rightly know.

Blackmailer: You don't know? How many murders have you committed?

Spike: Hey, listen, give me a break, all right? Over the years, Alistair had me kill a lot of people. They just weren't all buried. And after awhile, you lose track.

{Jessica: It's the john! He's coming back to haunt us!

Spike: That's the biggest damn wave I've ever seen!

[Spike and Jessica scream] }

Spike: It was just always the cleanup that I'm not really good with.

Blackmailer: I know, I've seen your apartment.

Spike: You have?

[Blackmailer laughs]

Spike: Uh, yeah, look, haven't I dug up enough already?

Blackmailer: I imagine so. All these skeletons are bound to rattle a lot of nerves in this town. Now hurry up and wrap these up.

Spike: Right.

[Blackmailer laughing]

Pilar: Dios mio. Back at this prison again. How many more times? I hope Judge Reilly rots in hell. How dare he not delay Luis' execution?

Sheridan: Don't worry, Pilar. There must be a way to stop this.

Pilar: I don't see how, Sheridan. I mean, everything that Ethan has tried has failed. And this horrible place. Every time the phone rings, I think I'm going to hear that Luis has been beaten or stabbed.

Fancy: Blame Sheridan. If she hadn't ratted me out to the warden, I could still be on the inside protecting Luis. Now God knows what will happen to him.

Sheridan: Oh, this is not my fault, you selfish witch. You're to blame for Luis being sent to prison in the first place.

Pilar: Shut up, both of you, before I knock your heads together.

Luis: Thank you for coming, Father.

Father Lonigan: Of course, Luis. I'm so sorry. All of us at the rectory were devastated when we heard you were sentenced. Don't give in to despair, though. Surely the truth will set you free.

Luis: Actually, Father, my execution date has been moved up.

Father Lonigan: Luis, that's terrible news.

Luis: Tell me about it. That's why I asked you to come. I don't think that I'm going to have time for an appeal, so I want to make my final confession.

Father Lonigan: It's finally come to this. Isn't there anything that can be done to stop this travesty?

Luis: Evidently not. Someone has set me up, but good, and it's time for me to accept that I'm going to die... very soon.

Ethan: Look, I've had it with both of you two. Why don't you just tell me what we're talking about, please.

Theresa: Ethan, you know what we're talking about. It's business.

Ethan: Bull! You don't cry over business.

Theresa: Well, come on, I mean, you know, I get very emotional at times, right?

Ethan: I know you do, but not over Crane Industries, not over money and deals. Angry, maybe, but I've never seen you get this upset over business before.

Julian: Neither have I.

Ethan: What is -- what is going on here? Will you just tell me, please? Because we're not leaving this room until you people tell me what we're talking about.

Julian: Do you care to tell him, or shall I?

Theresa: No. Julian, please.

Julian: Well, it's time this was brought into the open, so to speak. We were talking about Little Ethan. 

Ethan: What about Little Ethan?

Julian: Well, Ethan --

Theresa: You know what, Julian? Don't. Please.

Ethan: Don't, don't, what? Please don't what?

Julian: You see, Theresa and I were talking about Little Ethan -- his future. Weren't we, dear? As my attorney, you're well aware that we've been arguing lately about the custody of the little fellow until he reaches his majority. And Jared, as Theresa's attorney, has filed delay after delay until it's essentially put the case on the back burner. I just want the whole thing solved as quickly as possible.

Ethan: That's fine. Why didn't you just say so? As your attorney in this matter, yeah, I can take a meeting, I can arrange something.

Julian: I see. Well, I'm tired of all these legal shenanigans. I've lost all faith in the courts of late. Just look at that O.J. case. I mean, they had solid DNA evidence, and the fellow still got off. I just want to be allowed to spend time with the child. I mean, my own son, and Theresa, she's fought me on that over and over again, and I simply brought up the subject and she became extremely upset, and I really don't understand why because I think a man should be able to spend time with his son. Don't you, Ethan?

Ethan: I agree, Julian.

Julian: Yes, I believe that the key to turning a boy into a good, honest man is a solid father-son relationship. Don't you?

Father Lonigan: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, amen.

Luis: Amen.

Father Lonigan: The Lord has washed your soul clean of sin. How do you feel?

Luis: I feel better, thank you.

Father Lonigan: I'm very troubled by all this, Luis. Are you sure there's no way that they can't stop your execution?

Luis: No. It would be nothing short of a miracle.

Father Lonigan: Well, then there's still hope. To be constant in the anticipation of miracles is at the very root of our faith. I'm sure you didn't murder Rae Thomas and that poor bartender, and I know you're not guilty of those vile attacks on Fancy Crane. If only there was some way that we could capture the guilty party.

Luis: Believe me, I've tried. The only person that I know who is so vicious and cruel, the only person I know who could have done these things is Alistair Crane, but he's dead.

Father Lonigan: Yes, and I trust he has found justice. Luis, I have told almost no one about this, but since Alistair is gone, Alistair Crane was the one who made me blind.

Luis: Oh, my God. Why would he do such a thing?

Father Lonigan: It was a long time ago -- my first parish before I came to Harmony. Alistair told me some things, things that he later regretted telling me. I assume that was his last confession. He told me, a priest, to swear a vow of secrecy. Isn't that ridiculous?

Luis: Yeah.

Father Lonigan: Though what he told me disgusted me, I have never told another person, not to this day. But because Alistair distrusted men, because he was paranoid, he was afraid that I would reveal his revolting crimes. So he tried to kill me. He had someone set fire to my church, with me in it.

Luis: Good God.

Father Lonigan: At first, I thought it was the dark powers, but then it was revealed that Alistair was the culprit. I thought someone was looking over me that day, because Alistair did not succeed. But his attack left me blind.

Luis: How come Alistair wasn't sent to prison for attempted murder?

Father Lonigan: Well, you know that. Even then, Alistair was a very powerful man with friends in high places. He merely took some of his money and put it in the right pocket and got off.

Luis: Oh, my God. Well, now I've heard it all. I always knew Alistair was a sick individual, but to attack a priest.

Father Lonigan: Never underestimate the power of evil.

Luis: I don't. I'll tell you, if I hadn't seen Alistair die in that train crash with my own two eyes, I'd think that he was the one who is behind all of this. Everything that's happened in Harmony, it's all so sick and twisted. It's like Alistair's come back from the grave.

Father Lonigan: I pray you're wrong, but all these crimes, only God knows who's really behind them.

Luis: Well, God and whoever's doing all of this. I'm telling you, whoever it is, somehow they are linked to Alistair Crane, somehow they are behind all of this evil. 

Jessica: Stop it! This is ridiculous. Every time you take things out of the suitcase, I'm just going to put them right back in.

Simone: And I'm going to just take them right back out.

Jessica: I can't stay here, Simone. My father is the chief of police; he's a detective. If I spend too much time around him, he's going to figure out what's wrong.

Simone: Well, ok, then stay at my parents' house, or Pilar's, or stay at Rae's. The rent is paid up for another month.

Jessica: Yeah?

Simone: Yeah, and I was actually thinking about moving in there myself. Why don't we become roommates? I won't let Spike do anything or get anywhere near you.

Jessica: No, it won't work.

Simone: Why not?

Jessica: Look, I really appreciate your offer, but look what's happened. Every time I try to leave Spike, he just drags me right back. Besides, he's got too much on me and on you and Paloma, too. He'll destroy me and everyone I love. I have to get back to him before he turns me in for killing those johns.

[Spike grunting]

Blackmailer: Stop here.

Spike: My back.

Blackmailer: There. No one will overlook them now.

Spike: What, you're just going to leave him lying right here? Uh, hello, nobody ever comes up here. That's why I use this as my burial ground.

Blackmailer: Don't worry, they'll be found. Now, do you still have the photos I had you take the last night you killed the last john?

Spike: Yes, I do. See that? Three girls' faces? And one of the dead johns. They think they're so smart, huh?

Blackmailer: There's no question about who's responsible for at least one of the murders.

Spike: Poor Jessica. I kind of feel sorry for her.

Blackmailer: Aw. So you said.

Spike: Well, you know, she is my wife. I just feel kind of bad that she's going to get blamed for all this.

Blackmailer: Yes, she will. Now, get lost, unless you want to join these gentlemen.

Spike: Uh, nada. Later.

Blackmailer: Is this the police? I'd like to report a murder. Actually, lots of them. [Laughs]

Sam: What is it? I've never seen you two look so serious.

Noah: It is very serious.

Sam: Wait, wait, wait. You're not in trouble again, are you?

Noah: What? No, it's not me, for a change. Uh, God, I don't know how to say this. Paloma, maybe you should tell him.

Sam: What?

Paloma: All right. Chief, this is really hard.

[Phone rings]

Sam: Hold that thought, all right? Yeah, Chief Bennett. What is it?

Paloma: I hope we're doing the right thing. When he knows Jessica is responsible for killing all those johns, there's no turning back.

Noah: I know, but we got to help Jessica somehow, all right? I don't know what else to do.

Sam: You got to be kidding me. I'm on my way, all right? Call the medical examiner. Have him meet me there, too. Look, whatever you wanted to tell me is going to have to wait.

Paloma: But, Chief --

Sam: Look, there's been reports of murders, multiple murders. And you need to come with me, all right? You need more crime scene work. Let's go.

Paloma: Yes, sir, but --

Sam: Now, now! Let's go!

Noah: More murders. God, something weird is going on in this town. Something evil.

Sheridan: Pilar, I think you're overreacting.

Pilar: Not another word from you, Sheridan.

[Fancy chuckles softly]

Pilar: You, too. You're just as bad. I have known you both since you were born, and from what I can see, you are still acting like children. Spoiled rotten, both of you.

Fancy: Pilar!

Pilar: You -- you -- you're fighting over my son as though he was some toy you want to have. Wake up. This is life and death, this is not about you. I've lost enough in my life all ready, and I am not going to lose Luis. This is not a time for you to be fighting over who's to blame. The only thing that matters right now is taking Luis out of this horrible place. Now, if we don't band together and work side by side to free my son, they are going to strap him to a table, they are going to put a drug in his veins, and they're going to stop his heart. My baby's heart. Stopping his execution -- that's the only thing we need to focus on now. The only thing! You got it?

Sheridan: You're right. We can't keep arguing like this.

Fancy: I agree. I'm sorry, Pilar. We've got to stick together to win Luis' freedom.

Luis: Father, why didn't you ever tell me what Alistair had done to you until now?

Father Lonigan: Luis, I feel something terrible is about to happen, and when it does, I may not be around to help you.

Luis: Father, are you all right?

Father Lonigan: Yes, yes. I don't mean to sound like an alarmist, but, oh, Luis, all my life I've had -- what is the right word -- an awareness of evil. I don't mean to make it sound like ESP, which I have no stock in, but I have been there when I have felt presence of pure malevolence. And I'm feeling that now. We are surrounded by a simmering evil. Hatred, vengeful hatred.

Luis: Well, you can fight it, Father.

Father Lonigan: Yes, if God gives me the power. But at day's end, Luis, I am still just a man. I'm frightened. But enough about me. Keep your chin up. The fight is not over yet.

Luis: Well, thank you for your kind thoughts, Father.

Father Lonigan: I'll keep my ear open for any information that can help you.

Luis: Ok.

[Door opens]

Guard: Sorry, Father. Your time is up.

[Father Lonigan sighs]

Luis: Father, you ok?

Father Lonigan: Yes. Yes. Well, you should get some sleep.

Luis: Ok. Now you take care of yourself, ok, Father?

Father Lonigan: Yes. I'll try. God bless you, Luis.

Luis' voice: I've never seen him so worried. I've got to find out who's behind all of this.

Luis: Ok, I'm ready to go now.

Guard: You've got more visitors.

Fancy: Luis, are you ok?

Luis: Fancy. Hey. Mama.

Pilar: Hi, mijo.

Luis: Sheridan. Surprised to see you here.

Sheridan: Yeah. I guess you would be. But don't worry, your mother set us straight. We decided to put our differences aside to be here for you.

Luis: Well, that's great.

Pilar: Remember, mijo, there is strength in numbers, ok? We're gonna combine all our resources, and maybe that way will help get you out of here.

Julian: So, we're of one mind, correct? You do believe it's important for a father to spend time with his son.

Ethan: Of course I do.

Julian: There you go.

Ethan: Theresa, I know this whole lawsuit upsets you, but you have to realize how despicable it would be for a mother to keep a father away from his child.

Theresa: Unless the father isn't worthy of seeing his child.

Julian: There, see? She agrees. A tempest in a teapot, so to speak. It's a pity things have become such a mess between us, dear.

Theresa: You started it.

Julian: And I shall finish it, too, one way or the other. The only thing that is important here is Little Ethan's welfare. Just think of the hell that Ethan went through all those years not knowing who his real father was. On a personal note, it hurt me, too. I mean, I thought Ethan was my son, but due to his mother's wickedness, all my hopes and dreams were washed away in a moment.

Ethan: Julian, please keep your comments about my mother to yourself.

Julian: Of course. I just don't want to see the same thing happen to Little Ethan.

Ethan: Well, it wouldn't, because we all know that you're Little Ethan's father.

Julian: Well, yes. Perhaps it's all this Anna Nicole Smith craziness that's got me unsettled.

Ethan: What are you talking about?

Julian: Well, you know, all those men claiming to be the child's father, all those DNA tests, you know.

Ethan: Sure. What does that have to do with Little Ethan, though?

Julian: Well, my name is on Little Ethan's birth certificate, but Father adopted him, made him a Crane heir, and then there's the fact that he's always looked up to you as a sort of father figure. I mean, the child must be very confused.

Ethan: Well, I hope he's not.

Julian: Well, I just want to assert my rights and make everything as simple and crystal clear as possible.

Theresa: I want the same thing, Julian. So, just remember that possession is 9/10 of the law, and I possess an awful lot around here.

Jessica: Well, this is it.

Simone: Jessica, please, don't do it. Don't go back to Spike. The man is poison.

Jessica: You think I don't know that? I have got to go back to him. I won't let my baby be born in prison. Please, can't you respect my wishes?

Simone: I don't know what to say to you anymore.

Jessica: How about "good luck." Noah, I was just leaving.

Noah: Yeah, you're not going anywhere.

Jessica: What?

Noah: Simone, would you excuse us for a second? I need to speak my sister in private.

Simone: Well, maybe you can get through to her. She's on her way back to Spike. I was trying to talk her out of it.

Noah: Don't worry. After she hears what I have to say, she'll be staying right here.

Jessica: Oh, for God's sake! Do I have to argue with everyone around here?

Simone: Jessica, please. Just call me later, ok? Anytime.

Jessica: Ok, come on, get it over with. Play the game all you want. I'm still going back to Spike.

Noah: Paloma told me the truth.

Jessica: The truth about what?

Noah: About your dead johns.

Sam: What have you got here?

Officer: Over here.

Paloma: No, dios mio, not here.

Sam: My God, human remains.

Officer: That's the understatement of the night. After the station got that anonymous call, we rushed right over. When the first car got here, they found this.

Second Officer: The medical examiner's already checked out some of the bones. There are deep cuts on rib bones from stab wounds. They all look like victims of murder.

Sam: What do we have here? A serial killer?

Blackmailer: Oh, you wait. The murders have just begun. [Laughing]

Pilar: I saw Father Lonigan leaving as we came in.

Luis: Yes. I asked him to come so I can make my final confession.

Pilar: No, mijo, please, you can't lose faith.

Luis: Mama, please. Come on. Can we just be realistic here, ok? It does not look good for me. Now, there is one thing. Maybe you can talk to Theresa, have her talk to Judge Reilly. You can bribe him. I know that man will do anything for money, right?

Sheridan: We have some bad news. We went to go see Judge Reilly earlier. I tried to use my Crane influence to get him to reverse his decision and delay your execution. He said no.

Luis: I see.

Fancy: We'll keep trying, Luis. Somehow.

Sheridan: It's ridiculous. The whole world must know by now that you have been set up.

Luis: Yeah, tell me about it. It's driving me crazy. And who's powerful enough to move up my execution? Who hates me so much?

Sheridan: Whoever it is is extremely powerful, and they have information on everyone in town.

Pilar: Not just powerful, but evil, too. No one is safe.

Father Lonigan: Help me, Lord. One of your children, Luis, is about to die for crimes he did not commit. Please save him. And help me, Lord, as you have helped me so many times in the past. Help me to discover the evil that has surrounded my flock.

Jessica: I don't know what you're talking about.

Noah: Oh, come on, I just want to help you.

Jessica: I don't need your help.

Noah: Jessica, Paloma says you may have killed a lot of men.

Jessica: Paloma's a liar. I haven't killed anyone.

Noah: Oh, it's possible that you have, Jessica. Paloma told me all about it.

Jessica: Paloma's got a big mouth.

Noah: She stuck up for you, ok? She said she hoped that you weren't responsible but that if you were, it was the drugs that made you do it.

Jessica: Noah, this is silly. So, Paloma made up some big lies.

Noah: Whoa, hey, she would never lie about something like this, ok? She implicated herself, Jessica, and Simone, all right? She told me that she helped you dispose of evidence and of a body? That makes her an accessory to murder after the fact.

Jessica: Sounds like a big storm is coming.

Noah: She is your friend, Jessica. She put her entire police career on the line for you.

{Spike: I'm sorry, Jess, you may not have meant to, but you killed him. That makes you a murderer.

Jessica: No!

Simone: Oh, my God, Jess, what have you done?

Jessica: Hey, you, I've got to go. [Screams] No, no, no. [Screams]}

Noah: Oh, Jessica, come on. Don't be upset. It's going to be ok, all right? We are all here for you. I am here for you, and Paloma, and Simone, and we're going to take you down so you can talk to Dad, and you can tell him everything, get it all out in the open.

Jessica: No, you can't. All I have to do is go back to Spike. He'll protect me.

Noah: No, no, hey, not so fast, all right?

Jessica: Let me go, Noah. You don't know what you're getting into.

Man: Well, Sam, you've got a lot more on your plate after tonight.

Sam: What can you tell me? How long they been here?

Medical examiner: I'll have to get them back to the lab, but they weren't all buried at once. Some have been here months, some a year, even more, some even longer than that. A couple of them are fresh over there. It's difficult to say when you have bodies in bare earth like this. You have normal decay, bugs --

Sam: Yeah, yeah, yeah, spare me the details. How many you think we got?

Medical examiner: Four skulls so far, but God knows how many more. From the way the ground's been disturbed, I'd say the whole field is a graveyard.

{[Women grunting]

Simone: This way, ok?

Jessica: Quick, hurry before somebody sees us.

Simone: Don't worry, no one ever comes down here. Got him.

Jessica: Ok. }

Paloma: What's happening here? That body was here a few days ago.

Ethan: I don't understand either one of you, ok? Possession is 9/10 of the law? What are we talking about here?

Theresa: Well, Little Ethan is in my custody, and so is Crane Industries. And Julian, well, he is merely an employee and a stockholder, nothing more.

Julian: Well, things have a way of changing -- morally, ethically, and most important, legally.

Theresa: Mm, yes, if you're depending on legalities, well, Julian, sometimes, I mean, it can take cases years and years to work it through the justice system. I mean, old men, they die waiting for justice.

Julian: Justice can be amazingly prompt.

Theresa: I don't know. But it seems to me that when someone starts threatening someone else, they should make sure they have all their ducks in a row before they start shooting.

Julian: When I start shooting, my dear, it won't be at ducks.

Ethan: Enough! What -- what -- what the hell are you two talking about? Am I going to have to shake it out of you? What's going on?

Ethan: Ever since I came in here, you two have been talking in some kind of code to keep the truth from me. I'm not a fool. I know something's going on here. So why don't we stop it with the barbed comments and the little digs, and just tell me what I interrupted.

Julian: Ladies first. All right. If you won't tell him, I will.

Noah: No, no, hey, you are not going back to Spike, all right? Not now, not ever. Maybe if you told the truth in the beginning, things wouldn't have gotten this bad, maybe, but you have to tell Dad the truth now.

Jessica: I can't.

Noah: You have to, ok? Men are dead, Jessica. Look, we are here for you, we all are. I will have Paloma and Simone come with us and go down to the station and help you tell Dad everything that happened. 

Jessica: No.

Noah: Spike drugged you, Jess.

Jessica: That doesn't mean I'm innocent. The courts don't care if you are high on drugs when you committed a crime.

Noah: But you didn't know what you were doing. Paloma says you don't even remember committing the murders, right? You need to tell the truth.

Jessica: I can't.

Noah: You have to, Jessica. You can't keep these lies going. Look, Jess, if the police find those bodies, you could be put to death.

Sam: This is a big field. Are you telling me --

Medical examiner: The ground's been disturbed all over the place. There could be dozens more buried here.

Sam: Mike. You two, go grab a couple of shovels. I'm going to dig up this whole field.

Mike: Will do, Chief.

Sam: Whoever did this is going to pay.

Paloma: Dozens? Jessica couldn't have killed dozens, could she? Ay, dios mio, her secret is out now. And we're all going to pay the price.

Luis: How's Mama holding up?

Fancy: As well as can be expected, I guess. She's a strong woman.

Luis: I just don't think she's strong enough for this. But it's a good thing that she's talking to Sister Alice. She's helped a lot of inmates' families through --

Sheridan: You're not going to be executed, is that clear?

Luis: So you keep telling me. It's bad, Sheridan, you said so yourself.

Fancy: God, what is wrong with this town? Doesn't anything good happen for anyone?

Luis: I got you, didn't I? Hey, buck up, cadet, all right? Come on, you're made of stronger stuff than that.

Fancy: I'm not a cop anymore, Luis.

Luis: Hey, once a cop, always a cop. It's like riding a bicycle. Let me think here, ok? There's someone out on the streets that's killing people, they're raping, they're blackmailing Judge Reilly, railroaded me onto death row.

Sheridan: It just doesn't make any sense. I mean, it's almost as if my father --

Luis: I know, like he's still alive, right?

Sheridan: How could he be? You saw him die.

Luis: He's dead. He's dead. But the more I think about it, the more that I am sure that there is something in the past that has come back. Something evil. It's like the past has come back to haunt us all.

Father Lonigan: Watch over Luis and his family, particularly his dear mother Pilar. You know how much she has had to suffer. So, you're here. I've been waiting for you. I can feel you. I can sense evil coming for me, for us.

Blackmailer: Then you know I've come to kill you.

Father Lonigan: Yes. I know.

On the Next Passions:

Blackmailer: Your time is up.

Lucretia: We hereby declare you a good witch.

Theresa: Wait!
