PostSubject: Castle Rock Episode Transcripts   Mon Aug 13, 2018 11:59 am

I'm trying to streamline these so they take less time.  After posting a scene description in the main thread, I have reservations about how the bolded all caps scene descriptions are going to look.  I'm not going to retype for episode one, but going forward, I'll probably do something different for better appearance and ease in reading.  Sorry.


ETA: Let me know if you see any mistakes and I'll correct them.

Castle Rock S01E01 "Severance"


---------------------------

1991/CASTLE ROCK LAKE/WINTER/PANGBORN SEARCHES FOR 11 YR OLD HENRY DEAVER.

MAN ON RADIO:  ... law enforcement officials across the state ... but with dangerously low temperatures ... the search for 11-year-old Henry Deaver has been called off until the spring thaw, in what's now considered a recovery, not a rescue.  Meteorologists say the last time low temperatures broke minus-thirty ...
CASSETTE TAPE - GENE PITNEY: ... Dearest darling I had to write to say that I won't be home anymore
'Cause something happened to me while I was driving home
And I'm not the same anymore
Oh, I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa

1991/PANGBORN TAKES A BREAK/SITS UNDER TREE/HEARS LOUD EERIE CREAKING-HOWLING NOISES/SEES HENRY MIDDLE OF LAKE/RUNS TO HIM.

YOUNG ALAN PANGBORN:  Henry? Henry! Henry!

PRESENT/2018/NIGHT OVERVIEW OF TOWN/RADIO SWITCHES STATIONS

MAN ON RADIO:  As the saying goes here in Maine, if you don't like the weather, just wait a minute ...

WOMAN ON RADIO:  The governor said private prisons bring ...

MAN ON RADIO:  Right here on WXIU, Brumberg-Castle Rock ...

LACY HOUSE/MORNING

MARTHA LACY:  Don't tell me breakfast in bed?   I wish you'd taken that buyout 30 years ago.

WARDEN DALE LACY:  After you, Mrs. Lacy.

MARTHA LACY:  Oh! - Will there be a cake?

WARDEN DALE LACY:  No.  It's not really a cake ... crowd.  

MARTHA LACY:  Penny's driving me to Portland.  I'm buying new shorts.  I told her, "Dale retires, we're gonna find out once and for all --  if he's got knees."

WARDEN DALE LACY:  Hmm.  That's easy for you to say, you won't have to look at them.

MARTHA LACY:  Last day, Mr. Lacy.

THE SAME OPERA SONG THAT ANDY DUFRESNE PLAYED IN "SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION" PLAYS ON WARDEN LACY'S CAR RADIO AS HE DRIVES TO WORK.  IT'S "CANZONETTA SULL'ARIA" FROM MOZART'S "LE NOZE DI FIGARO".

INSTEAD OF WORK LACY DRIVES TO CASTLE ROCK LAKE.  PLACES NOOSE AROUND NECK/SHAGGY DOG APPEARS AND BARKS/LACY STARES THEN SLIGHT SMILE/DRIVES CAR OFF CLIFF INTO LAKE - LEAVING HIS SEVERED HEAD BEHIND.

SHAWSHANK PRISON/NEW WARDEN T. PORTER ARRIVES.  SHAWSHANK PRISON GUARD CHESTERTON ESCORTS PORTER TO HER OFFICE.

GUARD CHESTERTON:  Some folks aren't built for retirement, same deal as my old man.  Finished his twenty in the Navy -- dead in a year.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  That a fact?

GUARD CHESTERTON:  My point is, it wasn't the smoothest shift change, but we're damn glad to have you.

SHAWSHANK PRISON/WARDEN'S OFFICE

GUARD CHESTERTON:  Little trivia.  Shawshank's actually lost four wardens in office.  You can still see the bullet hole where Warden ...

WARDEN T. PORTER:  We can skip the audio tour.

GUARD CHESTERTON:   All right.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  You know, they never found the head.  Heard they got a deal on the funeral -- Ten percent off.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  If this were my office, I'd kill myself too.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  It's yours now.  Boost enrollment by 20 percent, we can get an extra 1.5 million a year.  We can always park non-violents in the gym.

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Actually, the gym's already double-bunk, ma'am -- the whole prison is.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Thank you, Officer.

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Of course ... except for block F, but that's been closed since the Christmas fire in '87.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Officer ... ?

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Zaleski, ma'am.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  How many beds in block F?

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Sixty, seventy, at least.  But, I mean, nobody goes down there anymore.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  You're telling me that my predecessor left an entire wing of this prison unoccupied for 30 years?   Why?

SHAWSHANK PRISON/GUARDS ZALEWSKI AND BOYD CONVERSATION AS WALKING TO BLOCK F

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  He had a severance package from Northeast Correctional that was six figures.  That's on top of his pension.

GUARD BOYD:  So?

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  So?  Why did he off himself?

GUARD BOYD:  Who am I, Sigmund Freud?   I don't know, sometimes a rope is just a fuckin' rope.

BLOCK F

GUARD BOYD:  Holy shit.  Right here -- that's where they stacked the bodies.  Fuckin' jailbird barbecue.  Yeah.  Mm-hmm.  All right, bro, that's night-nights. (Lays down on prison cot.)

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Really?

GUARD BOYD:  Oh, fuck, yeah.

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Great.  Thanks.

GUARD BOYD:  Do you want in?

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  No.  We're supposed to count the beds.  Hey!  Somebody's been here!  (follows footprints)  Hello?  (continues following footprints/finds and opens floor seal to No Name's cage.  Accidently drops something down hole.)  Ah, shit -- Great.  (descends ladder)  Hello?   (reaches bottom -- shines light -- finds No Name)  Oh, fuck!!!  (scared - scrambles back up ladder)

SHAWSHANK PRISON/ALARM SOUNDING/GUARDS DOING PRISONER CHECK

GUARD 1  Counting! 8172, 8369, 8462, 8172, 8369
GUARD 2  Cell block A, full block.
GUARD 3  Holbeck --  Block B.
GUARD 4  All accounted for!

SHAWSHANK PRISON/UNKNOWN CELL/GUARD CHESTERTON IS QUESTIONING NEWLY FOUND NO NAME PRISONER

GUARD CHESTERTON:  I need a name, son.  Who are you?  What's your name, hmm?  We got no records of you.  Come on, what's your name?  How'd you get inside this prison?   Cat got your tongue?   Who put you down that hole?   You can tell me.  Nothin', huh?  All right.

HEARD BUT NOT SEEN

GUARD CHESTERTON:  What did he say when you found him?

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  The kid?  Didn't say a word -- he's like a mute.

SHAWSHANK PRISON/ZALEWSKI SHOWS NO NAME THE SHOWER

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Hey ... It's a shower ... to-to clean ... water.  It's okay ... it's okay.

SHAWSHANK PRISON/NO NAME'S CAGE

GUARD BOYD:  Oh!  What the fuck is this thing anyway?  It's like a It's like an old water tank?

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Jesus Christ.  What do you think it does to a guy?

GUARD BOYD:  What?

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Bein' here ... trapped ... alone.

GUARD BOYD:  I don't know.  Saw a kid do two weeks in the hole, came out thinkin' he was the Easter bunny. (laughs)

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  It's funny? (pause)  Hey!  There was a big coffee can full of cigarette butts right here.  Do you see that anywhere?

SHAWSHANK PRISON/WARDEN'S OFFICE/WARDEN T. PORTER IS CHECKING THE CIGARETTE BUTTS FROM THE BIG COFFEE CAN IN NO NAME'S CAGE WITH WARDEN'S LACY'S FROM HIS OFFICE

GUARDS BOYD AND ZALEWSKI IN THE HALL OUTSIDE AN EXAMINATION ROOM WHERE NO NAME IS GETTING CHECKED OUT

GUARD BOYD:  Okay, one old perv in charge of a prison ... plus one fuck slave in an oil tank ... minus one head.  How's my math on that?

SHAWSHANK PRISON/WARDEN'S OFFICE

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  He's never been processed -- not even a jaywalking charge -- No fingerprints in the system.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  This is a public relations disaster.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  So ... do we call the cops, or the board of directors?

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Why don't we ... take a beat.  Sort out what we're dealing with here before we make any calls.

SHAWSHANK PRISON/NO NAME'S CAGE

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Hey.  If they can't figure out who he is, they gotta let him go, right?

GUARD BOYD:  Yeah, I'm sure they'll make him the mayor of Castle Rock.  If he wasn't a psychopath before -- he sure as shit is now.  I'll tell you one thing ... I wouldn't want to be the new warden.

GUARDS BOYD AND ZALEWSKI IN THE HALL OUTSIDE AN EXAMINATION ROOM WHERE NO NAME IS GETTING CHECKED OUT/WARDEN T. PORTER AND REEVES ARRIVE AND ENTER THE EXAMINATION ROOM

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Young man, who are you?  What's your name?  Can he hear me?  Have we checked out his ears?  Or are we playing some kind of fuckin' charades here, because ...

NO NAME:  (INAUDIBLE)

NO NAME:  Henry Deaver.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Okay.

GUARD BOYD:  (Quietly, to Zalewski)  That's not Henry Deaver.

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Who the fuck's Henry Deaver?

GUARD BOYD:  It's a long story.

NO NAME:  Henry ... Matthew ... Deaver.

TEXAS COURT COURT/ATTORNEY HENRY MATTHEW DEAVER IS APPEALING THE DEATH SENTENCE FOR HIS CLIENT LEANNE GAITSKILL

HENRY DEAVER:  How much doubt is reasonable? Well, folks ... If I had to choose ... whether or not to take someone's life ... and that is the choice before you today -- make no mistake!   I don't think any amount would seem reasonable.  Now, me ... I had to kill someone?  I'd need it etched in gold and signed by God Himself.  We're talking about an abused woman, linked to the death of her husband Richard Chambers by purely circumstantial evidence.  We're talking about a disbarred alcoholic who represented Leanne in her first trial, and a star witness who was a known drug trafficker with a sweetheart deal.  All that, I'd say, adds up to some doubt.  That was enough for a retrial, a do-over.  This sentencing phase ... it's a do-over, too.  But after today, there will be no more do-overs.  Judge signs an order ... needle goes into a vein ... the body goes into a box ... and in six hours ... that body ... that body! -- will be ashes.  And ashes don't get appeals in the state of Texas.  So I ask ... how much doubt are you folks comfortable with?

EXECUTION PROTEST OUTSIDE TEXAS PRISON WHERE LEANNE GAITSKILL IS SCHEDULED TO BE EXECUTED

FEMALE NEWS REPORTER:  ... who was sentenced to death in 1993 is the oldest death row inmate in the state of Texas.  The execution is scheduled for 6 o' clock this evening.

FEMALE OFFICER  Whoa, whoa, whoa, you can't be here.

HENRY DEAVER:  I'm the lawyer.

TEXAS PRISON/LEANNE CHAMBERS CELL/LAST MEAL SERVED/HENRY AND LEANNE ARE PRESENT

HENRY DEAVER:  Fifth Circuit's gonna rule against us.  I'm sorry, Leanne.  The governor is a long shot.

LEANNE GAITSKILL:  You know? ... I grew up downwind from a cereal factory ... a mile from home ... smelled like Cheerios.  That was my first memory.  What's yours?

HENRY DEAVER:  What?

LEANNE GAITSKILL:  Your first memory.

FLASHBACK/1991/PANGBORN IS CARRYING 11 YR OLD HENRY OVER HIS SHOULDER/OPENS VEHICLE DOOR/CASSETTE STILL PLAYING

GENE PITNEY SINGING:  I was only 24 hours from Tulsa ...

PRESENT/TEXAS PRISON/LEANNE CHAMBERS CELL//HENRY AND LEANNE ARE PRESENT

HENRY DEAVER:  Gene Pitney.  "24 Hours from Tulsa."

LEANNE GAITSKILL:  That's a nice song.  "24 Hours from Tulsa."   My dad ... used to take me to a honky-tonk place on the south side of Dallas.  He'd get good and drunk and take me to the alligator farm just next door.  We'd sit there and stare at those gators for two, three hours at a time.  Sometimes I'd get to drive the car home at the end of the night.  What I keep wondering ... all the smells we smell and the songs and pictures -- do you lose them all?  I mean, wherever you go next, does the tape get erased?  And if it does you're not really you anymore, are ya?

HENRY DEAVER:  Is that what you're afraid of?

LEANNE GAITSKILL:  That's what I want.

FLASHBACK/1991/INSIDE PANGBORN'S VEHICLE

YOUNG ALAN PANGBORN:  Look at me.  Look at me.  I'm Alan.  I'm a friend of your mother's.  No frostbite.  You been inside somewhere?

PRESENT/HENRY DEAVER IN EXECUTION OBSERVATION ROOM/LEANNE GAITSKILL SEEN EXECUTION ROOM/LEANNE INJECTED AND DIES.  HENRY WAITS TO COLLECT LEANNE'S EFFECT/ALARM SOUNDS AND GUARDS RUSH PAST.

HENRY BACK IN OBSERVATION ROOM/GUARDS & PERSONNEL WITH LEANNE START TO RESTRAIN HER AND EXECUTE HER AGAIN

HENRY DEAVER:  Hey! Hey, I'm her witness.  You don't get a fucking do-over! (grabs chair and repeatedly strikes glass window) ... fuckin' witness! Hey!!!

SHAWSHANK PRISON/WARDEN'S OFFICE/THIS DIALOGUE PLAYS OVER HENRY'S TRIP TO DOC'S LIZARD BOWL ZOOLOGICAL PARK (GATOR FARM) WHERE HE GOES FOR LEANNE.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  Henry Matthew Deaver.  Based out of Houston -- grew up 20 miles that way ...  Castle Rock.  Bad reputation ... big mess with the state police when he was a kid.  Pulled some stunt -- ran away from home.  People thought somebody took him.  Half the state's out looking for him ... middle of winter ... and what they find is his father -- half-froze, and his back's broken.  Doesn't last three days.  Kid comes sashaying back from the dead like Tom Sawyer to find out he's got no dad, and the town blames him.  Claimed he couldn't remember a thing.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  So, our anonymous friend says exactly three words, and we think that he's asking for his lawyer?  I think we are not bringing a criminal defense attorney into an internal corporate matter.  Mnh-mnh.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  We could take him for a drive. Drop him over the border.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Yeah, then he pulls a Willie Horton and I spend the rest of my career in accounts receivable.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  Or we could find him a roomie ... a psycho who collects life sentences -- circle of life.

TEXAS GATOR FARM/HENRY DEAER RECEIVES A PHONE CALL

HENRY DEAVER:  Hello? (pause while listening)  Yeah.  (another pause while listening) Yeah, Henry Matthew Deaver the attorney.  What? I-I can't hear you.  Whoever you've got isn't my client.  My clients are all dead.

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Look, I shouldn't even be calling you, but listen, listen!  They found a kid in a cage.  No one else is gonna help him ... Shawshank State Prison.

HENRY DEAVER:  Who-who is this?  (Zalewski hangs up)

CASTLE ROCK/SCHOOL PARKING LOT/MOLLY STRAND PULLS UP IN CAR

DEAN MERRILL:  The MILF.  Twice in one month?  If I find out you've been subcontracting me ...

MOLLY STRAND:  What?  You'll tell your homeroom teacher?  It's for me.  I've got a condition. (Gives Dean money.)  Oh, yeah, I can get you rest on Thursday ...  or a postdated check if you want.

DEAN MERRILL:  Obamacare's been repealed -- no co-pays.  Forty gets you eight fives.  (Hands drugs to Molly.)

MOLLY STRAND:  You need kids, by the way.

DEAN MERRILL:  What?
 
MOLLY STRAND:  To be a MILF.

DEAN MERRILL:  (laughs and walks away)  See you around.

MOLLY STOPPED AT A LIGHT/SEES HENRY DEAVER GET OFF BUS/MOLLY STEALS AWAY MAKING  RIGHT TURN TO AVOID HENRY/WE SEE DOWN THE STREET (OPPOSITE DIRECTION) THAT SHE TURNS ONTO./THERE'S THE CHURCH AND WHAT LOOKS LIKE THE HBM HOUSE.

FLASHBACK/1991/INSIDE PANGBORN'S VEHICLE IN FRONT OF THE DEAVER HOUSE

YOUNG ALAN PANGBORN:  It was minus-forty last night.  You know how cold that is?  Freeze to death in an hour.  And you've been gone, like, 11 days.  So what happened out there?

YOUNG HENRY DEAVER:  I don't remember.

YOUNG ALAN PANGBORN:  Son, do you know what happened to your father?  Okay.

ALAN GETS OUT AND GOES TO FRONT DOOR/TALKS TO RUTH DEAVER. WHILE RUTH AND ALAN COME BACK TO THE VEHICLE, HENRY LOOKS DOWN AT THE WHITE CARVED STATUETTE CLUTCHED IN HIS HAND.  RELIEVED, RUTH OPENS THE DOOR AND HUGS HENRY.

PRESENT/HENRY ARRIVES AT HIS CHILDHOOD HOME/A FIRE ALARM IS BEEPING AS HE ENTERS THE HOUSE

HENRY DEAVER:  Hello?  Mom?  Aaah ... sh.. (burns hand on smoking skillet. sees mom out back)

HENRY DEAVER:  Mom?  Ruth!  

RUTH DEAVER:  Oh! My, uh ... my white oaks are dead.  It's a miracle they didn't topple over and kill someone.  Did you bring your own chainsaw?  Well, then, let's check the garage.  Come on now!  We were all immigrants once.  Except Sitting Bull.  (laughs)  I'm not like the others.   I adopted a black son.

HENRY DEAVER:  Mom ... Mom.  It's me.  I'm Henry.  I called you this morning.

RUTH DEAVER:  Henry.  (nods)  Yeah, of course you are.  Okay.  (both go inside the house)

HENRY DEAVER:  I had to fly in for a-a work thing.  But I wanted to see you.

RUTH DEAVER:  Maret's watching the baby?

HENRY DEAVER:  Wendell is fifteen, Mom.  What ... W-What happened to the nurse?

RUTH DEAVER:  Who?

HENRY DEAVER:  Your Medicare pays for a home health aide.  I arranged it all with St. Jude's.

RUTH DEAVER:  Oh! Constance!  Long gone.

HENRY DEAVER:  Gone? Where?

RUTH DEAVER:  Well, I'd like to say heaven, but ... I have my suspicions.

HENRY DEAVER:  (hears thud)  Is someone in the house?

RUTH DEAVER:  Someone's in the house?

HENRY WALKS INTO THE OTHER ROOM LOOKING FOR A POSSIBLE INTRUDER.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Are we on fire? You know, there's easier ways to get a man out of the shower.

RUTH DEAVER:  Henry, do you know Alan Pangborn? He's our uh ... county sheriff.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Was.   Been a few years now, Ruth.

HENRY DEAVER:  Alan?  (to mother)  W-What's going on?

RUTH DEAVER:   You boys must be hungry.  How about some bacon and eggs?

ALAN PANGBORN:  Why don't you see if you can scare up some fresh sheets for your boy?  If he's stayin'.

RUTH DEAVER:  Yeah.

HENRY DEAVER:  Few days.

ALAN PANGBORN:  What brings you home?

HENRY DEAVER:  A client.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Oh, yeah?  You've burned through all the killers in Texas?

ALAN PANGBORN:  I don't think he's gonna miss it.

HENRY DEAVER:  Where is he?

ALAN PANGBORN:  Who?

HENRY DEAVER:  My father.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Oh ...

HENRY DEAVER:  I stopped by the church, and the cemetery is-is gone.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Yeah, the church made some wildcat investments, didn't pan out, had to parcel the land.

HENRY DEAVER:  So they just ... paved over the bodies?

ALAN PANGBORN:  No, they moved 'em.  To a yard up in Bangor, by the airport.  My experience, the dead are not particular.

HENRY DEAVER:  They can't do that without our permission.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Your mother gave it.

HENRY DEAVER:  Nobody thought to pick up the phone and call me?  Did she even know what she was signing for?  You signed for her.

ALAN PANGBORN:  I deposited the distress settlement for her, too.

HENRY DEAVER:  What else you been signing for, Alan?

RUTH DEAVER:  Oh! The sheets!

GUARD:  Family?

HENRY DEAVER:  Client.

GUARD:  Inmate's name.

HENRY DEAVER:  I don't have it.

GUARD:  You're a lawyer and you don't know your client's name?

HENRY DEAVER:  I got a call.   One of your prisoners asked for me.  I ... didn't get all the details.

GUARD:  You got a name? (guard picks up phone - Henry shows license)

GUARD:  Through the opening, please.  (Henry slides license through opening.)   Thank you.

HENRY DEAVER:  Mm-hmm.

GUARD:  I got a Henry Deaver here.

SHAWSHANK PRISON/WARDEN'S OFFICE

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  I'll find out who called him.  What did Pruitt say?

SHAWSHANK PRISON/OFFICE WITH WARDEN AND HENRY DEAVER PRESENT/DEAVER IS LOOKING THROUGH THE PRISON ROSTER

WARDEN T. PORTER: We're moving to enterprise software, but the wheels turn slowly, even in the private sector.

HENRY DEAVER:  I'm sorry to hear about your predecessor.  Always heard nice things about him.  My, uh ... father worked here -- visited a lot, anyway ... back in the eighties.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Oh, really?  Corrections?

HENRY DEAVER:  Ecclesiastes.  Pastor.  He led Bible study from time to time.  Any idea why Warden Lacey would have --

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Forced buyout.  Some folks are just not cut out for the 19th hole.

HENRY DEAVER:   And some people guillotine themselves with a Lincoln.  Guess everybody deals with retirement differently.  What about ... recent transfers?

WARDEN T. PORTER:  If he's in here ... he's in there.  (motions towards roster)  I wish I could help you find your client, Mr. Deaver.  I can't very well call up a ghost.

HENRY DEAVER:  Thing is ... a ghost called me ...  from inside this prison.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Your anonymous caller.  And then you flew two thousand miles?

HENRY DEAVER:  Had some free time.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Mr. Deaver, the average CO is a 25-year-old who makes nine dollars an hour.  These guys don't think much of lawyers.  And in a state as lily-white as Maine, is it possible that you were a victim of a prank?   If this was a goose chase, I hope you'll accept my apologies.

HENRY DEAVER:  And if you happen to find the missing page from your book, you'll get in touch.  I assume private prisons still fall under the purview of the Constitution.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  This isn't Texas, Counselor.  Actually, it would be pretty odd if we did have one of your clients.  Maine got rid of the death penalty 150 years ago.

HENRY DEAVER:  How'd you know I work capital cases?

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Sorry?

HENRY DEAVER:  I didn't say I work capital.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Oh, we don't have gallows here, but we do have cable news.  I was sorry to hear about your client.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Whistle dry?

HENRY DEAVER:  I'm good.  You knew Dale Lacy a long time, right?  The warden?

ALAN PANGBORN:  We weren't exactly handball buddies.

HENRY DEAVER:  Why did he do it?

ALAN PANGBORN:  This might surprise you, given your line of work, but it's not always a happy job ... carryin' the keys.

HENRY DEAVER:  I got a call from Shawshank.  They found a kid in a cage.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Call from who?

HENRY DEAVER:  I don't know yet.

ALAN PANGBORN:  What I hear, prison's full of cells.

HENRY DEAVER:  Not a cell.  A cage.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Huh.

HENRY DEAVER:  Huh?

ALAN PANGBORN:  (sighs)  Henry, I'm just an old-school cop.  Corrections?  That's a whole 'nother world.

HENRY DEAVER:  Whole 'nother world?  Same blue line.

ALAN PANGBORN:  You know where he did it?  Castle Lake ... the bluff.  Right where I found you.  Damnedest thing.  [i]Huh![/b].

Castle Rock S01E02 "Habeas Corpus"

-------

[SCENE  Shawshank Prison/Zalewski on duty monitor room/[baseball game on radio-sportscast continues in background/monitor shows No Name's cell empty.  Six monitors reflect no people present.  Then monitor shows No Name walking along corridor/gate opens/No Name stares into camera/Then all the monitors flip over and show dead guards lying in blood.]

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Shit.  Shh ... shit!  (punches alarm)

[SCENE  Zalewski gets gun - leaves office and starts "clearing" the corridors.  The alarm is blaring and men are shouting in the background.  The corridors are clear -- no dead guards.  Zalewski swings around and fires his gun as Guard Boyd comes up behind him.  The shot misses Boyd.]

GUARD BOYD:  What the fuck are you doing?!  Are you fuckin' crazy?!  Zaleski!  Put the fucking gun down, man.  What the fuck is the matter with you?!  Fuck!

APPROACHING GUARD:   You guys okay?

GUARD IN BACKGROUND  Clear -- it was a false alarm.

WALKIE-TALKIE:  All clear, it was a false alarm.  Repeat ... false alarm ... all clear.

GUARD BOYD:  What's the matter with you?

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  S-Sorry.

[SCENE  Monitor room/All the monitors are back to normal including the one showing No Name in his cell.]

P.A. System:   ... cleared.  Staff, return to your posts.  Repeat, all floors cleared.  Staff, return to your posts.

[SCENE  The following dialogue plays over scenes of Castle Rock -- first up close -- then aerial shots.]

WARDEN DALE LACY:  People think  we're just one of those dead towns they've heard about.  A run of bad luck ... worse judgment ...  broken promises.  We know different, don't we?  (siren wailing)  It's not luck.   It's a plan -- and not God's, either.  Remember the dog? -- the Strangler?  Sure you do.   How about all the others that didn't make headlines?  

[SCENE  The following dialogue plays over a high school football game in which Warden Lacy was #21.  He takes a hard hit while running the ball.  As he lays unmoving, the crowd grows quiet and players circle around him.  Lacy comes to and gets up to a cheering crowd.  A little girl in the crowd looks up at the roof of the high school and sees the team's mascot (dressed as a cougar).  They wave at each other, then the mascot jumps off the roof to his death below.]


WARDEN DALE LACY:  Nineteen sixty-one.  It was the fall after they found that boy's body out by the train tracks.  I took a hard hit ... almost didn't make it home.  Turned out, I wasn't the one people needed to worry about.  My younger brother was.

[SCENE  The following dialogue plays over scenes from Lacy's house.  The front of the house to his study and then an over-flowing bathtub with a bloody dead body in it.  The water runs down the staircase.  There's a stuffed toy, a pair of boots, spinning top and a suitcase on the steps.  Next, the living room with a tv playing a cereal commercials and a partially clothed dead man in the recliner.  The camera moves to the bottom of the close door and shows the end of a hose.  Exhaust is coming out of the hose, which leads back to the garage where the hose is attached to the tailpipe of a running car.  There's a middle aged woman with a serious look on her face in the driver's seat.  She pushes down on the gas pedal a little harder.  ... see next scene.]

WARDEN DALE LACY:  That was my first taste of what this town could do to someone.  Take any house in this town.  Hell, take mine!  Every inch is stained with someone's sin.  (sound of water running while big band music plays on the radio)  I lie awake at night thinking about all the blood spilled under my roof alone.  People say, "It wasn't me.  It was this place."  And the thing is ... they're right.

[SCENE  The camera pans to the door as it raises and Lacy walks into the garage, grabs a lantern and a toolbox and then yells back at his wife as he gets into the car.]

WARDEN DALE LACY:  Parole board may run long.  I wouldn't wait up.

[SCENE  The following dialogue plays over the scenes.  Lacy drives to Shawshank Prison.  He walks through the burned out area of Block F.  He starts constructing the cage he will keep No Name in.  There's a television playing a message from President George H.W. Bush.]

WARDEN DALE LACY:  I used to get down on my knees and ask God to show me my purpose.  With all the guile of hell arrayed against this town, what can one decent man do?   "Let me stand athwart the doorway," I told Him.  But God he doesn't take requests.  So I waited for years for instructions.  And then, one day one beautiful day ...

President George H. W. Bush on TV:  The answer is clear.  The world could wait no longer.

WARDEN DALE LACY:  ... God answered.

[SCENE  Warden Lacy's house.  Henry Deaver knocks on the door.  Martha Lacy is blind soon leads Henry into the living for their conversation.]

MARTHA LACY:  Yes?

HENRY DEAVER:  Um, hello.    I'm an attorney for --

MARTHA LACY:  Northeast Correctional.

HENRY DEAVER:  No.

MARTHA LACY:  Someone suing Northeast Correctional, then?

HENRY DEAVER:  Yes.

MARTHA LACY:  As far as I'm concerned, private prisons should be outlawed.  I hope you'll take this all the way to the Supreme Court.

HENRY DEAVER:  I'm with you on that.  I'm actually here about a particular prison.

MARTHA LACY:  Oh.

HENRY DEAVER:  An inmate your husband may have taken a special interest in?

MARTHA LACY:  Dale believed in rehabilitation.  Off the clock, he called it grace.  He knew his Romans 2.  

HENRY DEAVER:  "Goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance."

MARTHA LACY:  Exactly.

HENRY DEAVER:  Well Martha, frankly, I worry Northeast Correctional doesn't have this young man's best interests at heart, the way your husband did.  They can't even find the man's file.  Did your husband ever bring any work home with him?

MARTHA LACY:  When he did, it stayed in his office -- house rule.  Would you like to take a look?

[SCENE  On their way to Lacy's office, Henry stops to admire a painting.]

MARTHA LACY:  Admiring Dale's art?

HENRY DEAVER:  He painted these?

MARTHA LACY:  Oh, Dale could have been a professional.  Everyone says it.  (phone rings)  I'm so sorry.  You'll excuse me.  (answers phone) Hello?

[SCENE  While Martha talks on the phone in the other room, Henry explores Lacy's office.  He finds a number of holy cards and a file containing newspaper clippings of local tragedies.  Henry finds an old desk calendar reading:  "Wednesday, March 9, 2011.  Even at that hour of the night, the jailer cared for them and washed their wounds. Then he and everyone in his household were immediately baptized. ACT 16:33".  He finds another calendar with the same verse dated: "Wednesday 2001, January 8." And yet another dated November 14, 1998 (which was a Saturday) and another dated April 26, 201? and still more with dates, April 22, 1988,  Thursday September 13, 2001, Tuesday June 13, 1999.  Martha comes back into the room and Henry shoves the calendars back into the drawer.]

MARTHA LACY:  Are you black?

HENRY DEAVER:  Uh [clears throat] - I'm sorry?

MARTHA LACY:  That was Sally from next door.  Are you black?

HENRY DEAVER:  (chuckles) Last I checked.

MARTHA LACY:  You're Henry Deaver, aren't you?

HENRY DEAVER:  Last I checked.

MARTHA LACY:  We knew your father.  We were members of his congregation.

HENRY DEAVER:  I'm sorry.  I didn't mean to offend you.  I just want to --

MARTHA LACY:  After what you did?  And now you take advantage of a blind woman?  There's a special place in hell.

[SCENE  Henry notices a big padlock on the basement door.]

HENRY DEAVER:  What's in the basement?

MARTHA LACY:  Don't make me call the State Police.

[SCENE  The church.  The pastor is meeting with some of the congregation who have volunteered to be prayer partners for Shawshank inmates.  Henry walks in as the meeting comes to an end.]

PASTOR:  There are two new inmates that have requested prayer partners.  Ignacio James Jursik, 23 years of age, aggravated robbery, possession of narcotics with intent to distribute.  (Two people raise their hands) Paul, I saw your hand first.  Bruce Lee McNamara, 57 years old, one count indecent exposure, six counts murder, two counts -- wow -- desecration of a grave.  (One person raises her hand.)  Jackie Torrance.

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  All God's children.

PASTOR:  You'll collect your engraved Bible Sunday at ten.  (to Henry)  Hello!  Have a seat.  All are welcome.  Are you new to the incarnation?

HENRY DEAVER:  No.

[SCENE  Another room in the church.  The meeting is over and the pastor is straightening up.]

HENRY DEAVER:  Do you ever get the sense there was something he was hiding -- something weighing on his conscience?

PASTOR:Me? (laughs) Oh, no.  Warden Lacy wouldn't have confided in me.

HENRY DEAVER:  But this was his church.
 
PASTOR:  Before my time.  I got the sense he preferred to, uh ... pray alone.   He'd drop Martha off on Sundays, drive out to the woods.   I think he considered nature his chapel.

HENRY DEAVER:  Died doin' what he loved.

PASTOR:  Um ... last time I bumped into your mom she told me you represent death row inmates?

HENRY DEAVER:  That's right.

PASTOR:  Wow!

HENRY DEAVER:  Thank you for your time.  (Henry starts to leave.)

PASTOR:  Sorry.  Uh, no, um ... I just mean ... I find it really inspiring.  We work with some colorful characters in our Prayer Partner program here, and for you to be involved with that kind of work after what you came from --

HENRY DEAVER:  What I came from?

PASTOR:  Your ... history in this town.  Uh ... It's just, well, it's nice to see redemption in the flesh.  You know?

[SCENE  Shawshank prison/Another guard lets Zalewski into No Name's cell.  Zalewski removes NN's untouched food tray.]

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  You didn't, like, leave here ...  last night, did you?  Wander out or something?  'Course you didn't.  Um I'm-I'm-I'm screwed up, and-and I got ... you know  fathers get this thing called sympathetic pregnancy -- mind fog, nausea, it fucks with your sleep and stuff, it's ... All right.

[SCENE  Warden Porter is sitting at a bar in the Hilton Augusta, drinking.  The bartender greets Alan Pangborn as he walks up beside Warden Porter.]
 
BARTENDER:  Welcome to the Hilton Augusta.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Thank you.  (looks at menu)  Oh, God.   Let's try the ...  $6 Coors.

BARTENDER:  Yes, sir.

ALAN PANGBORN:  You mind? (reaching across Warden Porter for a dish of nuts)  (notices Porter's employee ID)  Shawshank, huh?  Rough month.  Not everyone's cut out for corrections work.  Some guys just ... (snaps fingers) ...  I was a lawman myself.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Could I have the check? (gets ups to leave)

ALAN PANGBORN:    They're namin' a bridge after me ... hundred and fifty tons of steel and concrete -- Hallelujah.  (raises his glass)  'Course back then we didn't have the Buck Rogers shit body cams -- computers --  it was just you in your cruiser makin' a call.  I remember one night,  this Towncar whips past, bat out of hell.  I pull the guy over.  Turns out to be your predecessor, Warden Lacy.  Well, that night he told me, he had finally figured out what was wrong with Castle Rock.  (Warden Porter sits back down.)   He said he had always thought the devil was just a metaphor, but now he knew the devil ... was ... a boy.  And old Dale said he caught him ... had locked the devil in a box.  And from here on out, it was blue skies and butterflies.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  How long ago was this?

ALAN PANGBORN:  Don't let that fuckin' kid out.  (gets up and leaves)

[SCENE  Shawshank Prison/No Name's cage in Block F/Warden Porter, Deputy Warden Reeves present.]

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  The fuck do you say to something like that?  So ... is it time to call Pruitt?

WARDEN T. PORTER:   And tell him what?!  (sighs)   That he can add criminal conspiracy to ... I don't even know what this was.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  (groans) Fucking fingernails.

WARDEN T. PORTER:  A decent man.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  Who?

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Lacy.  Everyone says it.  Good man.  So he must have had a good reason.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  You want me to make it all go away?

[SCENE  Shawshank Prison/Deputy Warden Reeves gets No Name from the infirmary and walks him through the corridors (other inmates are shouting and banging on cell doors).  They arrive at a new cell in solitary occupied by a tough-looking inmate.]

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  (at No Name's cell)  Get up.  (arrives at new cell in solitary)  Go ahead and stop.

TOUGH INMATE:  What the fuck's this little prick?

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  Looks like you gentlemen are double-booked -- austerity measures.  (Reeves locks No Name up with the other inmate (Inmate "Adolph")  and walks away.)

[SCENE  The following dialogue plays over aerial scenes of Castle Rock, an exterior shot of the Deaver home and Henry Deaver descending the stairs.]

WARDEN DALE LACY:  Only a few others knew those terrible things we did for our town ... for our home.  And, well ... I pray they've long since forgotten.

[SCENE  Deaver house/Henry notices (what looks like) a square of corn bread  or coffee cake on his plate in the dining room.  Goes into kitchen finds his mother on a step-stool going through the pantry.]

HENRY DEAVER:  Morning.

RUTH DEAVER:  (startLed)   Oh!   There's maple syrup in here from the Bush administration.  (goes into dining room)  The good Bush.  (sighs) (points at Henry's plate)  This is as close as I had to Betty Crocker.  Your birthday's still the 27th, I assume?

HENRY DEAVER:  (laughs)  Yeah.

RUTH DEAVER:  My age, you get a grace period.  (lights a birthday candle retrieved from pantry and sticks it on the piece of "birthday cake")  Happy birthday, Henry.

HENRY DEAVER:  You know I'm older than he was.

RUTH DEAVER:  Who?

HENRY DEAVER:  Dad.

RUTH DEAVER:  Older than he was when?

HENRY DEAVER:  Ever.

RUTH DEAVER:  Is that why you're here?   I was thinkin' about when you turned seven.  I made a big batch of that buttercream frosting.  That was before we knew about your lactose thing.   Never seen a cake disappear and reappear that fast.  (chuckles) You probably don't remember that.

HENRY DEAVER:  No. (blows out candle)  

[SCENE  Molly Strand (wearing sunglasses) adjusts the curtain as she looks out her window at the Deaver home.  FLASHBACK:  It's night and young Molly stares out her window at the Deaver house.  She flashes her flashlight and receives a responding flash of light from Henry, seated at his desk in his bedroom.  They smile and wave to each other.  (Another memory -- On a rainy day, Molly writes Henry Deaver over and over again in a notebook.)  Another memory - it's 2:17 in the morning and Molly is awakend by Rev. Deaver calling to Henry:  Henry, quit draggin your feet!  Let's go!  Molly gets out of bed and looks out the window.  She sees Henry, in his red hoodie run down the walk and get in the station wagon.  The Reverend starts the car and they drive off.  END FLASHBACK  Adult Molly sighs and continues staring at the Deaver home.]

[SCENE  Day/Mellow Tiger Bar which is a Combination Diner/Bar/Bowling alley/Molly is seated at a table and takes some drugs.  Molly's sister joins her.]

MOLLY'S SISTER:  I know, I'm late.  Sorry, it was a whole thing.  Daycare wouldn't take Bryce for medical reasons.  You know I can't leave him with Dan, so --

MOLLY STRAND:  Is he okay?

MOLLY'S SISTER:  He has pinkeye ...  again.  I swear, he gets it deliberately just to spite me.  Oh!  Well, you know what I heard from Candice?  Henry Deaver is in town.

MOLLY STRAND:  So?

MOLLY'S SISTER:  Oh, please.  Miss ... Pre-teen Voyeur 1991.  Apparently he's a lawyer.  Represents murderers. --  Isn't that ironic?  (wipes table)  This is filthy.

WAITRESS:  Here you go.  (The waitress sets plates down in front of them.)

MOLLY STRAND:  I ordered for you just to save some time.

MOLLY'S SISTER:You know, when you called about lunch in an actual ... restaurant or ... snack bar, I assumed that you were doing better.

MOLLY STRAND:  Oh, I'm doing great, actually.  I've sold two houses already this month.

MOLLY'S SISTER:  I hope you take your blue blockers off when you meet with clients.  You know, the best cure for social anxiety is sunlight.  (Takes Molly's sunglasses off.)

MOLLY STRAND:  Okay, well, I don't have social anxiety.

MOLLY'S SISTER:  Right.  Your ... undiagnosed psychic affliction.

MOLLY STRAND:  There are nerves in the brain, they're called mirror neurons.  And they're responsible for empathy.

MOLLY'S SISTER:  Are you high?

MOLLY STRAND:  What?!  No!  No, I'm not some junkie.

MOLLY'S SISTER:  Right, so the Percocet for my root canal just ... stole itself.

MOLLY STRAND:  I take half a pill, once a day, just to muffle other people's noise.  Forget it.  I called you ... because ... I'm going to be on Local Color next week.

MOLLY'S SISTER:  The TV show.

MOLLY STRAND:  I'm going on to talk about the revitalization of historic downtown, starting with the yarn mill.  So I need $40,000 from the equity on Mom and Dad's house for a five-year commercial lease.

MOLLY'S SISTER:  A lease on the mill?

MOLLY STRAND:  (nodding)   Mm-hmm.

MOLLY'S SISTER:  This town is not Great Barrington!   Okay?  It's Fallujah!  So this is your big plan?  You're gonna mortgage the only security you have so you can freeze up ... on live television ... and flush your entire future down the john.

MOLLY STRAND:  Do you know ... how many people in this county watch Local Color?

MOLLY'S SISTER:  Fortunately, the house is not yours to mortgage, okay?  Mom and Dad left half of it to me so that I could make sure that you don't burn it down and die in the gutter.  You might have to move back in to that house someday.

(MOLLY STRAND:  sets papers down on table)  I signed your name and filed the papers this morning. (Gets up and grabs her purse.)  Thank you for lunch.  (Molly walks away leaving her stunned sister sitting at the table.)

[SCENE  Shawshank Prison/Solitary/Cell with No Name and Inmate "Adolph".]

INMATE  "ADOLPH":  Shut the fuck up, will ya?   What are you, a pederast?   "Judge not lest you be judged."  (Gets up and walks menacingly over to No Name.)

NO NAME:  (whispers)  

INMATE  "ADOLPH":  What?

NO NAME:  (whispers)  Don't want to touch me.  (Inmate "Adolph" laughs softly.)

[SCENE  Night/Castle Rock/Mellow Tiger Bar/Henry enters the bar.  There's a hockey game playing on the tv.]

SPORTSCASTER ON TV:  Five minutes remaining here in the third --

HENRY DEAVER:  Do the Shawshank guards still drink here?  

FEMALE BARTENDER  Only drink in 37 miles -- only burger, too.

HENRY DEAVER:  What happened to Nan's Luncheonette?

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE: (Walks up to Henry who is seated at the bar.)  You want the cover story or the real story?  Nan was running a fuck club in the back room.

HENRY DEAVER:  What?!

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  Like a swingers party -- since the nineties.  Nan needed money for a titanium leg for her nephew, so she blackmailed one of her regulars -- the governor's chief of staff --

HENRY DEAVER:  Governor of Maine?

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  Anyway, it backfired.  They burned Nan out.  No more fuck club.  No more Nan's.  No metal leg, I guess.  Sad.

HENRY DEAVER:  What's the cover story?

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  She packed it in when the town voted to unincorporate.

HENRY DEAVER:  When was that?  

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  Two ... three years?  Castle Rock is literally ... no longer on the map.  Can I ask you something?  Can I see your feet?

HENRY DEAVER:  Excuse me?!

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  You're Henry Deaver, right?  I heard you lost three toes ... frostbite.

HENRY DEAVER:  No.

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  No you didn't lose the toes, or ...

HENRY DEAVER:  I'm not going to show you my feet.

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  I'll show you mine.  You know ... kids used to dress up like you for Halloween.  But ... then ... somebody Instagrammed a photo and it became a whole thing.  The blackface --

HENRY DEAVER:  Okay, let's hear it.  What's the story?

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  Beloved local preacher opens his home and his heart to poor screw-up orphan.   Weirdo kid gets weirder.  Ninety-one, mega-snowstorm, Guinness Book shit, you lure him out to Castle Lake, push him off the rocks ... bye-bye, Pastor Deaver.  Wander out of the woods eleven days later and pretend you can't remember what happened.

HENRY DEAVER:  That the cover story? ...  or the real story?

DIANE "JACKIE" TORRANCE:  You tell me.  

[Four Guys (one of which is Zalewski - wearing a tan jacket) walk in and can be overheard.]

GUARD BOYD:  Zalewski, tell me more about that Hallmark movie about the retard.

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Oh, you mean Action Jackson? Hair trigger on the line?

HENRY DEAVER:    He died at home, not at the lake.

HENRY DEAVER:  (clears throat)  (hands bartender note)  Tan jacket, at end of the bar.  (Henry gets up from bar, leaves money.) (to Jackie)  Excuse me.  (Henry leaves the bar as the bartender gives Zalewski Henry's note.)

[SCENE  Deaver House/Henry arrives home and finds Pangborn digging in the back yard.  The following dialogue plays as Henry walks over to where Pangborn is digging.]

WARDEN DALE LACY:  Give a man the keys to the dungeon ... tell him to lock up the monster.  Or pin a star on his chest.  Call him "Sheriff."  Maybe he succeeds a while -- a year, a decade or two if he's lucky -- but evil outlasts us all.

HENRY DEAVER:  Burying the evidence?

ALAN PANGBORN:  Diggin' it up.  Your mom's been leaving food out for the neighborhood mutt.  We buried it New Year's Day.  "Truck."  [sighs]  She loved that bitch.  She's got it in her head it's been nosin' through the garbage again.  Said she'd feel better if I checked.  Make sure it's still dead.

HENRY DEAVER:  This morning she ... seemed fine.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Yeah, they call it sundowning.  Real common.  Nights are hard for your mom.

HENRY DEAVER:  Have you told Doctor  ... um ...  the-the Portland guy.

ALAN PANGBORN:  We go to a clinic in Boston now.  Next appointment's in November.  Come on by, tell 'em yourself.  You free in November?

[SCENE  Pangborn unearths a big suitcase and opens it, revealing a dead dog.  He takes pictures with his cellphone.]

HENRY DEAVER:  Jesus Christ.

ALAN PANGBORN:  Don't worry about your mom, Henry.  I'm sure you're real busy in Texas.

HENRY DEAVER:    Court made me my mother's conservator three years ago.  It means they needed my permission before they moved my father's grave.  It also means that I say who comes in and out of this house.

[SCENE  As Henry walks back towards the house, we see Molly across the street in her house, staring out the window at the Deaver house.  FLASHBACK:  1991/young Molly is in her bed, covers drawn up to her nose.  Flashing police lights reflect off her bedroom walls.  Her mother comes into the room with a police officer, Deputy Ridgewood.]

MRS. STRAND:  Molly? Deputy Ridgewood needs to talk to you -- about the Deaver boy.

DEPUTY RIDGEWOOD:  Hi, Molly.  We found Father Deaver.  He was barely alive, at the bottom of a cliff at Castle Lake.  Did you know that?  (Molly shakes head no.  Deputy Ridgewood sits down on the edge of her bed.)  There's a lot of folks out in the woods tonight trying to find Henry, and we could use all the help we can get.  Did he ever ... say anything about running away?  Did he, uh ... did he talk about wanting to hurt his father?

YOUNG MOLLY STRAND:  It's not his father.

MRS. STRAND:  Mr. Deaver is half-dead, frozen -- fighting for his life!  Now they need to know, if that boy did it, why he did it!

DEPUTY RIDGEWOOD:  This isn't a manhunt.  It's a search-and-rescue operation.  We're ... just trying to find Henry.  It's nice and warm in here -- it's a cold night outside, and it's only getting colder.  If you know something ... where Henry might have run off to?

YOUNG MOLLY STRAND:  I don't know anything.

DEPUTY RIDGEWOOD:  Okay, then.  (The Deputy and Mrs. Strand leave the room.  Molly draws back the covers from her mouth.  She's so cold we can see her breath.)

[SCENE  Deaver House/Now inside, Henry opens the refrigerator/finds chess piece/receives phone call from Guard Zalewski.]

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  I really can't talk to you.

HENRY DEAVER:  Then you shouldn't have called me.  That was you, right?   (Henry looks out the window and sees Zalewski, sitting in his car.  Henry joins him.)

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  I haven't seen him since yesterday.  That douchebag from corporate took him out of the infirmary last night and walked him down to solitary.

HENRY DEAVER:  Jesus Christ.  This town, they-they should pave over the whole damn county.  I'll file habeas in the morning - State's attorney.  Actually, no.  Governor first, and then the S.A.  We'll make sure you have whistleblower protection before they depose you.

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  Wh-Whoa, whoa, whoa!  Depose me, like -- to a judge?

HENRY DEAVER:  Oh, no-no-no.  It's-it's-it's-it's anonymous.  You're protected.

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  I'm barely sleeping as it is.  I almost discharged my weapon on a C.O. yesterday.
 
HENRY DEAVER:  Listen --

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  I'm gonna lose my job! I'll lose my f-fuckin' healthcare!  There's a breast pump in the back -- my wife is giving birth in a month!  Do you think I would be working at a prison if there was a fuckin' Walmart within 60 miles of here?!   I did my part, I am done.  He asked for you!

HENRY DEAVER:  I need proof he exists.

GUARD DENNIS ZALEWSKI:  (scoffs)  Forget getting in there.  You are on every kind of list.  It would-would take an act of God to get you in that prison.

[SCENE  In front of the church in Castle Rock.  There's a line of people (Henry Deaver among them) boarding a school bus.  The Pastor is there as well.  The Pastor hands each person a book as they board the bus.  (As we watch Henry move up in the line,  we overhear the Pastor say:  Thank you ... watch your step ... Thank you so much... God bless you... God bless you...   Thank you.  Later, the bus pulls into Shawshank and we see Zaleski checking the monitors.  Another guard in solitary approaches the cell, No Name was escorted to the day before.]

GUARD  Guten Morgen, Adolph.  (Opens door and stares inside.)  Fuck me.

[SCENE  The church party gets off the bus and go to the prison chapel.  Their choir performs to a good number of inmates.  The scene shifts to the cell in solitary where a covered body is removed from the cell.]

GUARD  You sure he's dead?  He was just lyin' there.

[No Name stands just outside the cell while the other inmate's body is removed.  A female guard moves him back into the cell.]

FEMALE GUARD:  All right, let's go.  Watch your head.

[SCENE  Shawshank Prison infirmary/Doctor finishes autopsy of Inmate "Adolph".  Warden Porter and Deputy Warden Reeves are present.]

WARDEN T. PORTER:  Was it his heart?

PRISON DOCTOR:  Heart -- liver -- lungs.  He's riddled with metastatic cancer.

DEPUTY WARDEN REEVES:  (softly)  What the fuck?  Cancer?

PRISON DOCTOR:  I'm amazed he walked into that cell on his own two legs.

[SCENE  Shawshank Prison. The church group exits the chapel.  Inside the prison, Zalewski has grabbed No Name and then pushes him out a side door directly opposite the chapel.]

[SCENE  The following dialogue overplays this scene:  Henry is in the Chapel's fenced yard.  No name is in the prison's fenced yard directly opposite Henry.  There's a prisoner excercise field in between the two fences.  Henry looks about and spies No Name.]

WARDEN DALE LACY:  "Never again let him see the light of day."  That's what God told me.  He told me where to find him ... how his prison should be built ... how to put an end to all the horrors we've seen in this town.

HENRY DEAVER:  Hey!  (waves and then shouts to No Name)  I can be your lawyer if you want me to be.  But you have to say it.

NO NAME:  (softly says)  Henry Deaver.

[An alarm sounds and two guards rush out and grab No Name.  Henry takes pictures of No Name as the Guards lead him back inside.]

WARDEN DALE LACY:  What he didn't tell me was ... how full of doubt I would be about what we did ...

[Scene shifts to the shaggy dog Warden Lacy saw when he committed suicide.  The dog rushes to a spot (looks like it's the bluff) and digs in the ground, uncovering ... Lacy's head!]

WARDEN DALE LACY:  ... or where I'd wind up in the end.  I fear for this place.  I fear what's to come, Alan.  But I also know Castle Rock still has a defender, even in the dead of night.

[SCENE  As the dialogue continues, the scene shifts to Alan Pangborn in his car just outside Shawshank prison at night,  reading a letter from Warden Lacy.  All the voice-over dialogue from Lacy in this episode is from this letter.  Pangborn burns the letter.]
