: Do you remember how you felt when you opened that book of rituals? Ryan McBride
: Yeah, and what's that got to do with anything? Diamont Teague
: After the initial shock, that first wave of panic, do you remember how you felt? Ryan McBride
: Okay, yeah, there was a feeling of power. Diamont Teague
: Hm, power. That word again. Ryan McBride
: Yes, I was scared at first, and, yeah, then there was a feeling of power. But power because I controlled something so powerful, and so frightening. Now what's that got to do with anything? Diamont Teague
: Something wants these children, and is willing to trade for them. It's happening. I don't care what you call it. It's evil. It's the power of darkness.
: [entering Mitch's house with Diamont
] Ugh. Smells like something died in here. Mitch Buchannon
] Hi, guys! Come on in. Join me.
[turning to face them
] Mitch Buchannon
: I insist. Ryan McBride
: Mitch. Are you alright? Mitch Buchannon
: Am I alright? What do you mean am I alright? Don't I look alright? Ryan McBride
: I, I just meant
[catching her breath
] Ryan McBride
: how are you doing? Mitch Buchannon
: [in her face
] How am I doing? How am I doing? How do you think I'm doing!
[turning to Diamont
] Mitch Buchannon
: Well go ahead, Teague, tell her. Go ahead, tell her what you're thinking. Go ahead. Diamont Teague
: I'd like to see you show yourself for who you really are.
: Mitch, Mitch.
[whispering, holding out her hand
] Stephanie Holden
: Mitch, Mitch. Mitch. Mitch Buchannon
: Stephanie? Ryan McBride
: [over Mitch's body
] Ohmygod Diamont Teague
: [over Mitch's body
] One, two, three, four, five, breathe! Mitch Buchannon
: Stephanie, is it you? It's not possible, I mean, how could you be here?
[they turn to watch Ryan and Diamont administer CPR
] Mitch Buchannon
: But you died last year. How could I be here? Stephanie Holden
: I've missed you, Mitch. Mitch Buchannon
: I've missed you, too. What's it like? Stephanie Holden
: It's everything you ever dreamed. And more. There's nothin' but love. Mitch Buchannon
: So, we can be together. Forever? Stephanie Holden
: No. You're still needed, Mitch.
: Dust? Diamont Teague
: Just a label. Mitch Buchannon
: And the dust landed on this farm. Diamont Teague
: Possibly. Ryan McBride
: Well you know, our biggest fear the first time we sent man up into space was what we might bring back. Diamont Teague
: The Andromeda Strain. An alien virus that wipes out the world, and we can't contain it.
: You know, isn't it amazing with all the scientific brains you seem to have, and all the resources you seem to have, the only help you can muster up is us? Diamont Teague
: Will you help me? Ryan McBride
: I'll take the barn. Mitch Buchannon
: I'll take the house.
: Teague, have there ever been any kind of incidents like this before? Diamont Teague
] No. Not that I know of. But my access is limited.
: I'm not kidding. There are crazy people out there. Diamont Teague
: You think more than usual. Mitch Buchannon
] Guys, it's Los Angeles. People are crazy everywhere. It's in the culture. People expect it. Diamont Teague
: People can expect a certain amount. It's a given in any society. But what happens when another variable comes into the equation? Mitch Buchannon
: Then those people should move to Wichita. Ryan McBride
: What are you gettin' at? Diamont Teague
: You read the papers. Watch the news. There's been an escalation of so-called incidents over the last few days. And there'll be a lot more to come. Ryan McBride
: Incidents? Diamont Teague
: Unexplained confrontations. Violent behavior for no reason. Rioting, looting, erratic behavior. Mitch Buchannon
: It's the Santa Ana winds. People always go nuts when the winds kick in Ryan McBride
: Yeah, and you can throw the full moon in there as well.
: Few minutes later and that guy woulda been well done. Diamont Teague
: Maybe that was the intention. Ryan. This man that you saw, this stick that he was waving. Was it long and narrow with a separate piece twirling above it? Ryan McBride
: Yeah! Mitch Buchannon
: Oh, don't tell me, you know what it was. Diamont Teague
: The land that we're heading to. Before the Conquistadors it belonged to the Yuki Indians. Mitch Buchannon
: Yuki who? No footprints, remember. Diamont Teague
: Maybe it was a spirit. Ryan McBride
: Oh great, guys, that's, that's comforting.
: John, this is fascinating. How did you get the conal refraction? John
: Uh, uh, unintentional genius. Diamont Teague
: What is this, some sort of phase disturbance? Ashley
: That's what we were trying to determine, when it happened. Mitch Buchannon
: What happened? What's the big deal? John
: The, uh, time anomaly. Mitch Buchannon
: What's that in English?
: God, what is the matter with me? Why must I hurt the people that I'm closest to? Diamont Teague
: Don't beat yourself up. You're a scientist. An explorer. Your purpose is to go beyond the limits. To test the areas unknown to others. That can be dangerous. But with that comes responsibility, to finish what you've started. Now, you've done this. Now solve the problem.
: What'd you find? Ryan McBride
: Mucoid exodermal slough. Is it possible that Dr. Lloyd was working on some kind of DNA manipulation? Diamont Teague
: Possibly. Mitch Buchannon
: Resulting in what? Ryan McBride
: Well, you'd have to know Dr. Lloyd's parameters. Was the subject animal, human, what? Diamont Teague
: He was a very secretive man. He was given a lot of latitude. What is it? Ryan McBride
: Well, it's going to take me some time to identify the phylum. But I'll tell ya. Whatever did this is becoming more dangerous. Mitch Buchannon
: What's that mean? Ryan McBride
: Dr. Lloyd's little baby is mutating.
: So Dr. Lloyd was really on to something here. How humane, I don't know, but these blood samples and tissues confirm the capacity to somehow regenerate. Diamont Teague
: Which suggests in the proper environment this, this... Ryan McBride
: Artificially induced evolution. Diamont Teague
: Could make it indestructible. Ryan McBride
: Do you think that's what Dr. Lloyd was going after? Diamont Teague
: Don't know. Ryan McBride
: Don't know, or don't want to tell me? Diamont Teague
: Don't know. Ryan McBride
: I just thought of something. In theory, with this thing being an amphibian, she may also have developed the capacity of self-replication.
: [typing away on her laptop
[the office door opens. She looks over her shoulder toward it
] Ryan McBride
: Mitch? Teague. I don't have time for it right now. Diamont Teague
: Actually, I want to talk to Mitch. About the incident. Ryan McBride
: What incident? Diamont Teague
: He pulled a boy from the surf. He was then struck by clear-air lightning. That's what I want to talk to him about. Ryan McBride
: So? Diamont Teague
: Ryan? Is he experiencing unusual brain activity? Various forms of kinesis. Heightened alpha waves. Ryan McBride
: How did you know that? Diamont Teague
: Then he has. Ryan McBride
: Yeah. Diamont Teague
: Where is he now, and where is the boy? Ryan McBride
: I don't know. The boy ran away, and Mitch is out looking for him. Diamont Teague
: I've got to find him. Where is he? Ryan McBride
: I don't know. Wait a minute, how do you know all of this?
: Wait. Wait a second. You're not going without me. Diamont Teague
: You can't go with me. Ryan McBride
: Oh, really.
[holds up the car keys
] Ryan McBride
: If I don't go, you don't go. Diamont Teague
: You coming along for the ride, or are you willing to help? Ryan McBride
: Let's see, I'm a scientist, you're gonna show me some aliens, what do you think?
: Okay, that rules out shark attacks, being hit by a boat. I don't know, what else is there? Diamont Teague
: Ryan? Ryan McBride
: Teague, what are you doing here? Diamont Teague
: I'm very interested in the disappearance of lifeguards.
: Twins. Romulus and Remus. The founders of Ancient Rome. When Romulus was murdered, his spirit avenged his death and protected his twin brother. Ryan McBride
: Spirits attacking lifeguards in the ocean. You want me to call and see if there've been any reports on that?
: There have been numerous parapsychological events in this location. Strange unexplainable lights that suddenly came on in the middle of the night. Water leaks where there are no pipes. Cold spots so intense that frost forms on the walls. Mitch Buchannon
: Bet the owners loved that, huh? Diamont Teague
: [lighting a candle
] They left. The building, with the restaurant downstairs and the living quarters upstairs, was sold. Ryan McBride
: [taking a candle
] Well how quaint, Teague. Think you might want to pay the power bill before we get in here? Diamont Teague
: The electricity hasn't worked since the owners
] Diamont Teague
: left. Sarah
: Yet, experts say the everything is in perfect working order. Simply won't function.
: Teague. The carbon dating tests say that this tomb dust is over three thousand years old. That puts it at eighteenth dynasty in Egypt? That's when Thutmose and Queen Hatshepsut ruled. Diamont Teague
: [holding up a photograph
] This is the French expedition which actually made the discovery, and entered the tomb. They found a message in hieroglyphics. It was a curse. It promised that all those who entered her tomb and disturbed the Queen's sleep would meet a violent death. Mitch Buchannon
: Oh, please. The last thing I need is for the two of you to buy into some cockamamie story about King Tut, and his mummy. Diamont Teague
: A sage once said, in absence of proof, the wise withhold both belief and disbelief. Mitch Buchannon
: Hey, these fish are doing really good!
: About two weeks ago, something very dangerous arrived in Los Angeles. A killer. Of children. But not just any child. Street kids. Or runaways. The vulnerable. Mitch Buchannon
: Ryan thinks it might be some kind of a wolf. Diamont Teague
: It is. Mitch Buchannon
: It is? Diamont Teague
: Partly. We believe the killer to be a zargtha. Mitch Buchannon
: A what? Diamont Teague
: A canine creature, believed to inhabit the remote southwestern mountains of Yugoslavia. Considered mythic for centuries. The subject of scary stories that parents use to keep their children in line. Don't go out at night, or the zargtha will get you. Mitch Buchannon
: And this, uh, zargtha, just goes after kids, huh? Diamont Teague
: Yes. Mitch Buchannon
: And he came in from the remote mountains of Yugoslavia all the way to downtown Santa Monica.
: What happened? Ryan McBride
: He bumped his head. Mitch Buchannon
: Terrific. Another headache. What are you doing here? Diamont Teague
: Actually, I wanted to talk to you about things that go bump in the night. Do you believe in ghosts? Mitch Buchannon
: No, no, but they scare me.
: Donna thinks you're fascinating. Diamont Teague
: Let's talk about the woman you rescued. The word she kept repeating. "Ajogun." Do you know what that is? Mitch Buchannon
: Enlighten me. Diamont Teague
: Every culture has one. A legendary creature which is the embodiment of all that is evil. The Ajogun is from New Guinea. The fiercest creature from the fiercest culture on the planet. Legend has it that the Ajogun inhabits the jungle along the Purari River. When a boat strays too close to shore, the Ajogun leaps from the trees, savagely killing everything on board. Boats would be found adrift near the mouth of the river. No crew. Mitch Buchannon
: Where are you going with this?
: Have you ever heard of the Knights Templar? Griff Walker
: Yeah, in Sunday school. Protectors of the Holy Grail. Diamont Teague
: That's how they got started. But things have changed. Griff Walker
: To what? Diamont Teague
: In order to preserve themselves, they got involved in what controls the world. Politics and finance. With that came power. Power corrupts. Griff Walker
: Are you telling me a group of guys who used to be in the Crusades are controlling the world?
: [to Diamont, who is wearing a tailored suit
] I don't think you're dressed for the beach. Diamont Teague
