Episode Three: Red Rock

By Dean5339

Part One

 

INT. CAVERNS

We open to pitch black caverns. The camera pans over and we see two WOODEN CAGES built into the cave walls holding a young man, CONRAD ROSS, and young woman, MICHELLE YORK. In the darkness we make out the sounds of a Sioux War Dance. They stare forward. Two natives enter the caverns wearing EERIE NATIVE MASKS. They open the cages and drag Conrad and Michelle out.

CONRAD
Donít hurt her!

We track with them, gradually being brought out onto the tops ofÖ

EXT. RED ROCK- NIGHT
SEDONA, ARIZONA

Night. Red Rock. Cold. Alone. Isolated. A group of men and women in eerie Native American masks STARE down towards them. Conrad and Michelle are thrown against the rocks. The CHIEFTAIN, BANGS his wooden staff against the ground. The Sioux War chant ends. The chieftain is also masked. He walks over towards Conrad and Michelle. He looks down towards them and nods.

CHIEFTAIN
Kweewa.

The natives walk towards them and drag Michelle away. She attempts to fight back. It is useless. Conrad is held down, STRUGGLING.

CONRAD
No! No! Donít you dare hurt her!

The natives tie Michelle to a tall wooden stick surrounded by logs. Chieftain nods and a man wearing the carved skull of a BUFFALO steps forward.

CHIEFTAIN (TRANSLATION)
Now!

The natives LIGHT the logs, encircling Michelle, on FIRE. Conrad struggles to get freeÖ

CONRAD
No! No!! No!!!

Michelle closes her eyes frightened.

CHIEFTAIN (TRANSLATION)
God of the sky. God of thunder. God of lightning. We have come together again to make a great sacrifice to you. Above. Make prosperity live on. My great we have come with a sacrifice for you. Make our village strong. Bind your spirit with us oí great one. We have come with a sacrifice. She is yours. Give us life!

The chieftain BANGS his wooden staff against the ground three times. The sky above CRACKLES with a thunderous roar. Conrad struggles.

CONRAD
No!!!

A SURGE OF LIGHTNING BOLTS strike down from the sky and ZAP Michelle. She screams in AGONY. Tears fall down Conradís eyes.

CONRAD
No! No! God no!

The lightning stops. The chieftain looks towards Buffalo.

CHIEFTAIN (TRANSLATION)
It is done.

PAN OVER to see Michelleís DECAYING CORPSE tied to the stick. DEAD.

SUPERNATURAL: RED ROCK

INT. MOTEL

We open to a motel room. Dean and Sam are sleeping. RINGÖ RINGÖ RINGÖ Sam yawns and reaches for the phone.

SAM
Hello.

JOHN (O.C.)
Sam?

Sam breathes out, tired

SAM
Dad. Hey. What is it? Is everything alright?

JOHN (O.C.)
Donít worry about me. Iíll be fine. Do you have a pad of paper and a pen?

SAM
Yeah, Dad- what is it?

JOHN (O.C.)
I just need you to write down some information.

Sam nods. He writes out a series of names.

SAM

Dad. Are you sure youíre ok- Dean and IÖ

EXT. NEW YORK CITY- PAY PHONE

John leans against the pay phone and looks around. A shadow passes overhead attached to a skyscraper.

JOHN
Sam, no. Youíre brother was right. Itís too dangerous right now.

INT. MOTEL

JOHN (O.C.)
Iím sorry it had to be this way.

Sam breathes out and nods.

SAM
These names, what do they mean? Do they have something to do with the thing that killed mom?

JOHN (O.C.)
I donít know Sam. It might. Iím sorry, I have to go.

EXT. NEW YORK CITY-PAY PHONE

John looks around, he shakes his head no.

JOHN
It knows Iím here.

John struggles to hang up. He nods, he has to.

INT. MOTEL

The line clicks off.

SAM
Dad!Ö Dad!

No reply. Sam nods and puts the phone down. Dean yawns, waking up. He glances over towards Sam.

DEAN
Was that Dad?

Sam nods

DEAN
Well, whatís the word?

Sam tosses Dean the pad of paper.

SAM
More names. Dad wants us to check it out.

Dean looks over the names and nods

DEAN
Where is this?

SAM
Sedona, Arizona.

Dean looks towards Sam, eyebrow raised.

DEAN
Red Rock?

Sam nods. Dean looks towards Sam.

DEAN
Sam, Meg was right. Dadís only weakness is us. We couldnít have gone with him.

SAM
Yeah, I know. Itís just. Dadís so close to killing the demon that took mom. That killed Jessica. And weíre sent off on errands.

DEAN
So, what are you saying?

SAM
I want the same thing that Dad wants. Closure. I want this thing to end, Dean. I, I want to kill it. All of the pain itís caused me. I just-

Sam stops and breathes out. Dean looks towards Sam, sympathetically, and nods

DEAN
And you will. Remember what Dad said? In the end, weíll all play a part in this. Itís just the beginning Sam. Yeah, Dad knows what killed mom. But, that doesnít change the fact that we know nothing about it. That takes time. Effort. But, Iíll tell you this though- when the time is ready, youíll stare that son of a bitch straight in the eye and youíll kill it. Youíll get your revenge. You and DadÖ and me. It will all be over Sam.

Sam nods. Dean breathes out.

DEAN
So, why donít you say we hit the road and find this evil S.O.B. Get rid of it and prevent it from taking any more lives than it already has.

Dean stands up, grabs his bomber jacket and takes out the keys to the Impala. He tosses the keys up in the air and catches them.

DEAN
Weíll just have to wait it out. But, when the time comes. That demon will be sorry it ever messed with the Winchester family.

Sam smiles and laughs, shaking his head no; he stands up and walks towards the door. Dean pats him on the back.

DEAN
Come on.

Dean opens the door. Sam walks towards the Impala. Dean glances back into the motel room, he breathes out and closes the door.

FADE TO:
EXT. SEDONA-STREETS
(Tai Chi Ch'uan Way by Oliver Shanti)

The Chevy Impala drives through the streets leading towards Red Rock. Sam looks out the windows. The sight is spectacular. We pan around Red Rock. Beautiful. But, eerie.

INT. IMPALA

Dean looks towards Sam and nods.

EXT. SEDONA- STREETS

The Chevy Impala drives through the middle of Red Rock. This place has a history. Some of the carvings in the rock are still visible. The Impala enters the small town of Sedona.

INT. IMPALA

Sam looks down towards a newspaper. He unfolds it and flips to the obituaries.

DEAN
Find anything?

Sam checks over the notepad and looks back towards the obits.

SAM
Yeah. Michelle York. Sheís on dadís list. Originally from Maine, she was on a road trip with her boyfriend Conrad Ross. Also missing. Her body was found just down the road Saturday morning. Cause of death unknown.

Dean nods ok.

DEAN
Does it say where she was buried?

Sam shakes his head no

SAM
No. Best bet is that sheís still being autopsied on.

Dean nods

DEAN
Then, thatís our next stop. We need to find out how she died, Sam.

Sam nods

EXT. SEDONA- STREETS

The Impala drives off through the streets below.

FADE TO:
EXT. SEDONA MORGUE- AFTERNOON


The sun blares down towards the scorching desert ground below. The Chevy Impala pulls into the parking lot of the morgue. Dean steps out and looks up towards the morgue. It's small.

DEAN
Well, Iíll take it that they donít have that many deaths around here.

SAM
So, whatís the plan?

Dean reaches into the Impala and pulls out a wooden box. He places it on the hood of the Impala and searches through it.

DEAN
Here they are.

Dean tosses Sam an identification card.

SAM
Nathan Sands?

Dean nods.

DEAN
After you, officer Sands.

Sam laughs and shakes his head no. They enter the morgue.

INT. MORGUE- LOBBY

The inside also looks like itís made out of clay bricks. They walk over towards the RECEPTIONIST. Dean holds out his badge.

DEAN
Iím officer Rivers, and this is my partner officer Sands.

RECEPTIONIST
How may I help you?

DEAN
Weíre looking for Michelle York. She died last Saturday.

The receptionist looks through the computer database.

RECEPTIONIST
Ok. Yeah, here it is. Michelle York. Second room on your right, canít miss it.

DEAN
Thanks.

Dean and Sam walk down the hall and enter the room.

INT. MORGUE- SECOND ROOM

Dean and Sam look around the room. Three bodies are wrapped up. Dean looks towards Sam.

DEAN
Man! Iíd say this is the one part of the job I hate.

SAM
Queasy?

DEAN
Not even funny man.

Dean uncovers one of the corpses. Itís a elderly man.

DEAN
Alright, this is definitely not Michelle York.

Sam uncovers another corpse.

SAM
Dean.

Dean looks over towards Sam.

SAM
I think IÖ found her.

Sam looks down towards Michelle, repulsed. Dean walks over towards the corpse and looks. Dean gulps.

DEAN
Jesus Christ!

We pan down to finally see the corpse. Grotesque. Skin is molting. Bald. Eyes have been burned out of their sockets. The tip of the nose has been melted. Mouth clung together as though stitched shut. Dean looks up, to see the door opening. Sam notices it too. Dean fumbles with the gun in his pocket. The coroner enters the room. This is CRAIG SAMSON. Eccentric.

CRAIG
Hey. My receptionist told me that you were here. Is there any way that I can help, officers?

Dean nods

DEAN
Did anyone do the report on her yet?

CRAIG
Yeah, but no conclusive results.

SAM
What could have caused something like this?

CRAIG
I donít know. Best guess, I would have to say she was struck by lightning.

DEAN
Struck by lightning?

CRAIG
If I had to guess, yeah. Some believe it was due to witchcraft. This townís filled with superstition. But, of course you know that already.

Dean shrugs

DEAN
Of course.

SAM
Where was the body found?

CRAIG
Out next to Bell Rock. Just lying there. Vultures had already begun to pick her apart by the time the local tour guide found her.
(he laughs)
Sure gave the tourists one heck of a scare for their money though.

Dean pretends to laugh with him.

DEAN
Right-

SAM
Thanks for your help.

Craig nods and smiles.

CRAIG
Anything I can do to help. But, I just have to ask. I thought Jonathon Lancaster was on this case. What happened?

DEAN
He dropped out.

Craig frowns and nods

CRAIG
Have a nice day.

Dean hands Craig a card

DEAN
Call us if anything comes up.

Craig takes the card and holds it up

CRAIG
Sure thing, officer.

Dean and Sam exit the morgue. Craig looks down towards the card and puts it into his pocket.

EXT. MORGUE

Dean and Sam walk back towards the Impala

DEAN
SoÖ she was struck by lightning?

Sam looks towards Dean and shrugs. Dean nods. They get into the Chevy Impala and drive off.
