Episode Ten: Meine Kinder

By Booser

Act One

NT. HOUSE. LIVING ROOM. NIGHT

Blackwood, West Virginia

We focus on a small typical family, the HAMILTONS. The parents LINDSEY and CLEVELAND are trying to get their two kids to bed. Their daughter BRONAGH (6) races excitedly up the stairs, however the son CORMAC (7) seems reluctant.

CLEVELAND
(shouting after Bronagh)
I told you not to run up the stairs!

BRONAGH (O.S.)
Sorry Daddy!

CLEVELAND
And don’t forget to brush your teeth

Lindsey begins to sign to Cormac, it’s obvious the little boy is deaf. He signs something back

LINDSEY
(while signing)
You have to go to bed

LINDSEY
What do you mean why?
(signing)
Because it’s late, that’s why

Cleveland walks over

CLEVELAND
What’s the matter Cormy?

LINDSEY
He won’t go to bed

CLEVELAND
Again? But bed is fun

Cormac gives Cleveland a “what do you take me for” look

CLEVELAND
Sure it is, once you fall asleep and you dream you can do whatever it is you want to do. Isn’t that great?

LINDESY
(sternly)
Cormac if you don’t go to bed you don’t get any candy for a whole week

Defeated Cormac races up the stairs. Cleveland turns to Lindsey

CLEVELAND
A little harsh don’t you think? I was making progress

LINDSEY
In your dreams
(beat)
And anyway he eats too much candy as it is. It drives him nuts, that’s why he won’t go to bed on time

CLEVELAND
He’s just a kid. That’s why he won’t go to bed on time

LINDSEY
And you’re too soft on him. On both of them

CLEVELAND
Oh really?
(wraps his arms around Lindsey)
Would you rather I go hard on you?

Lindsey mock pushes him away

LINDSEY
(smiling)
Oh my god. No wonder my mother hates you

CLEVELAND
She doesn’t have to watch. In fact I’d prefer it if she didn’t.

Lindsey walks up the stairs

LINDSEY
(playfully)
You’re disgusting

CLEVELAND
No I’m not. I’m lovable

LINDSEY
We’ll see

CUT TO: INT. BEDROOM. NIGHT

We PAN across the bedroom revealing two beds. We stop and FOCUS on one. CLOSE UP to see Cormac half asleep. A slight breeze rustles the sheets as he flips back over on his side to face us. His eyes open slowly. He gets up and looks across at Bronagh’s bed quizzically.

CLOSE UP on Bronagh’s bed. It’s empty. Cormac gets out of bed and glances around the room. He spies the window has been opened so he walks across. Curious he sticks his head outside and gasps.

P.O.V. CORMAC

We are looking down the main street of the town. Small shadowy figures are walking, trance like out of the town.

EXT. STREETS.

CLOSE UP one : we see it is Bronagh! These are kids!

P.O.V. NORMAL Cormac screams and ducks back inside.

EXT. STREETS

We PAN UP the street for a panoramic view of the children mysteriously evacuating the town.

SUPERNATURAL - “Meine Kinder”

EXT. ROAD. NIGHT

The Impala roars past the camera

INT. IMPALA

Dean and Sam sit silently in the car. The tension however is bubbling over until finally:

DEAN
So when we are gonna talk about it?

SAM
About what Dean?

DEAN
About what happened back there in Philly

SAM
You actually wanna talk about it?
(beat)
You?

DEAN
What you thought I was the strong silent type? I tend to break character when I watch my brother try to blow his own head off

SAM
Dean......

DEAN (CONT’D)
Even more-so when he tries to blow my head off. I mean what were you thinking Sam?

SAM
I wasn’t thinking. The succubus was in control. You know that

DEAN
I don’t mean that. I’m talking about the way you took off on your own. We don’t communicate through scraps of paper Sam

SAM
I just thought if I was out there on my own I’d have a better chance of “attracting” it I guess

DEAN
(looks across at Sam)
What are you? Captain Kamikaze all of a sudden?

SAM
(looking across at Dean)
You trusted me didn’t you? It’s not like I didn’t tell you were I was, and I don’t recall you busting the doors down straightaway

DEAN
That’s right, I came after you when I realized you were about to screw it up

SAM
I wasn’t gonna screw it up

DEAN
Oh really? And what grand master plan were you gonna unveil when that thing stepped outta your Devil’s Trap?

Sam looks away

SAM
I knew what I was doing
(beat)
And where are we going anyway? We’ve just been heading south for like two hours

DEAN
Hey don’t try and change the subject here -

Dean and Sam begin talking over each other

SAM
Change the subject? I’m not changing the subject -

DEAN
You are, you’re always like this. Like I say something and -

SAM (CONT’D)
- asking stupid questions -

DEAN (CONT’D)
- you don’t wanna answer so you’re all like -

SAM (CONT’D)
-not like anything-

DEAN (CONT’D)
And when do you even care about directions anyway cos -

Sam’s eyes widen in shock

SAM
Dean look out!

P.O.V DEAN
We see a shape on the road up ahead. A collision is immanent

EXT. ROAD.

REVERSE ANGLE we see a woman rush out onto the road from the adjoining field. She is immediately dazed by the headlights and shields her face.

INT. IMPALA

DEAN
Jesus!

Dean slams on the brakes.

EXT. ROAD

The car screeches to a halt right in front of the woman, she places her hands on the bonnet, trembling.

INT. IMPALA

Dean and Sam compose themselves for a second, breathing heavily.

SAM
(confused)
That’s a woman Dean

Dean looks across at Sam, a bizarre expression on both brothers faces

EXT. ROAD

The woman mills about in a dazed state, she mumbles incoherently as Dean and Sam approach her cautiously. We see her clothes dirty and ragged, just like her hair. It looks like she’s just been dragged through a hedge back ways.

SAM
Ma’am? Ma’am are you ok?

The woman acts as if she doesn’t hear him. Sam glances across at Dean who returns a shrug

DEAN
Hello?

Dean touches her lightly on the shoulder. She spins around in an instant as if woken from a deep sleep by an incredibly loud alarm clock. It's Lindsey!

DEAN
Woah, sorry didn’t mean to startle you

LINDSEY
(agitated)
Where is she?

SAM
Who?

LINDSEY
Where is my daughter?
(desperate)
Where is my Bronagh?!

SAM
Ma’am you’ve got to calm down, you were nearly in an accident. We nearly hit with our car. Do you know where you are?

LINDSEY
Fields. Lost in the fields. They’re all gone.

DEAN
Who is lost in the fields?

LINDSEY
All of them. All the children!

SAM
(to Dean)
We need to take this woman home

DEAN
(to Sam)
Dude she’s a fruit

SAM
(to Dean)
I don’t think so. I think she’s a sane person who’s undergone a recent trauma

DEAN
(to Sam)
Like I said
(beat)
A fruit

LINDSEY
(calling)
Bronagh! Bronagh! Come back to me Bronagh!

DEAN
Listen to her Sam. That’s crazy talk

SAM
Or maybe she really is looking for her daughter?

DEAN
In the middle of the night? I think it’s more likely she is looking for a way back to her padded cell

SAM
I’m sure she’ll be able to tell us where she lives. If not maybe she has her wallet on her or something

DEAN
Dude we’re not a taxi service

SAM
It’s less then two miles to the next town Dean. If anything we can bring her to the local police station

Dean looks back at the woman who has begun to cry. His resolve fades

DEAN
Fine. You win

EXT. TOWN LIMITS

The Impala glides past a sign that reads “Blackwood. Pop. 3,408”

INT. IMPALA

The Winchester’s female guest mutters to herself in the back seat while Sam glances out the window

SAM
Looks like we walked into something here

EXT. STREETS

We pan across the streets as the Impala chugs by. People are out with flashlights, some with weapons. It’s clear the whole town is in a commotion about something

INT. IMPALA

Dean motions to the woman in the back seat

DEAN
You don’t thin they’re all looking for her do you?

SAM
I dunno

DEAN
Only one way to find out

INT. POLICE STATION

The trio enter the police station. In keeping with the town it’s small and unimpressive. However what it lacks in space it makes up for in activity. The place is buzzing with officers hurrying about and phones ringing off the hook.

SAM
Bad time?

DEAN
There’s never a good time to be in one of these places

Sam tries to get some of the officers attention but they’re far too busy. One young deputy recognizes the woman and approaches from behind the reception desk

DEPUTY
Lindsey?

DEAN
Oh thank god. You know her?

DEPUTY
Of course I know her. She lives three doors down from me. What happened to her?

SAM
We found her wandering along the road just now

DEAN
Nearly hit her with my car

DEPUTY
Lindsey?

DEAN
You’re wasting your time. She’s pretty far out of it. She have a habit of doing this?

DEPUTY
No, not at all. Poor things in shock.
(beat)
Fellas thank you very much. You did the right thing by bringing her in. I’ll take her home

Sam is thinking

SAM
Actually you know we can do that, you look rushed off your feet here

DEPUTY
It’s no problem

SAM
No really, it’s no trouble

Dean gives Sam a “what the hell are you doing” stare

SAM
(glancing around)
What’s goin’ on here anyway if you don’t mind me asking?

DEPUTY
(nervous)
Come to think of it maybe you’re right. I really shouldn’t do this but....

EXT. POLICE STATION

Sam, Dean and Lindsey exit the police station. Sam holds a scrap of paper with an address on it

DEAN
Remind me to have a very private conversation with you later on

SAM
Noted. You see the way the deputy changed the subject when I asked him what was up? He couldn’t wait to get rid of us

DEAN
Ok I get it Sam. You’re nose is twitching. Mine too, there’s something going on in this town

SAM
And I think Lindsey here can help us

DEAN
How?

SAM
Look around Dean. Lindsey isn’t the only one looking for lost kids

Dean looks around the streets. People are searching frantically

DEAN
They’re all parents, which means.....

SAM
Where did all the children go?
