Rhea, I can smell that all the
way down here in the kitchen!
RHEA (O.S.):
Sorry!
You know, melting plastic is
toxic. Are you trying to kill
us?
You're out of cerulean
in the workshop.
We've got a ton of cobalt.
You can't just arbitrarily
switch shades of blue…
in the middle of a painting.
It's like switching men
in the middle of–
Mom, thank you.
I will remind John.
Oh, it's finished.
This morning.
Oh, it's fabulous.
Took 200 bags.
You're a vision
in recycled plastic.
Grandma!
Oh!
Oh, hi!
Hey.
You're up early, were you
working in the garden?
So soon is the time
for plowing is proclaimed…
must make haste to plow
in the season for plowing.
That sound dirty to anybody
else?
ABIGAIL (O.C.): We give honor
and thanks to the sun for its
sustenance, warmth and light.
Ad Aurora.
And as our blessed Mother Earth
is rebirthed in spring…
so time is reborn
in the morning.
Ad Aurora.
Blessed be the goddess.
Blessed be the goddess.
Can we eat now?
( SNICKERS )
( ROCK MUSIC PLAYING )
Knock knock knockin knockin
On my window last night
This fire's been out
For some time

You told me it was over
That's not quite right

So be mine
So be mine

Things are rough enough
Won't you toughen up

Nice dress.
Hey, Taylor.
Hey, baby.
What's going on?
What up, ho?
Oh… hell, yes.
Do you like it?
Uh, yeah.
Yo, can you make me pants
out of Target bags?
A nice bulls-eye on my butt?
I'll see what I can do.
Here.
I stole it from Franky Fatpants.
You're terrible.
What?
Everybody calls him that.
I'm not eating stolen food.
Dude, you have to eat something.
A girl can't live
off of trash alone.
I'll eat when I'm done.
Are you gonna help me or what?
Sorry, I gotta go print out
college apps at the library.
Next time, I swear.
Give that back to Frankie.
Whatev–
Hey, Frankie!
What?
You can have your sandwich back!
Hey, trash lady!
MALE STUDENT (O.C.):
You're welcome.
No, it's not actual owl.
No, she totally said wings
and the stomach.
She did not,
she was talking about–
We're totally talking birds.
Don't do it.
It's done.
It's not done.
It's yet to be done.
There's been no doing.
Why do you care?
Because if you do this,
I'm gonna get my ass kicked.
Why would you get
your ass kicked?

Pack mentality…
I'm with you, you do something
lame, I get branded.
And?
And though I'm loath to admit
it, I'm the weaker of us two…
and thus, I'm more likely
to get my ass kicked…
since nobody jumps a guy
unless they know they're
gonna dominate.
Ergo, my ass is grass.
Ergo?
Er-frickin'-go.
I'm sorry, man, it's done.
I heard she's in some freaky
lady cult or something.
Look, you're not gonna
change my mind.
You're crazy.
Okay, let's settle down.
We've got a lot to get through
today, so let's get started.
I trust you've all brought
your poems in and you're
ready to read them?
Like, out loud?
Excellent, a volunteer.
( ALL LAUGH )
Do I have to?
No, of course not.
But you also don't have
to pass the class.
Oh!
MALE STUDENT (O.S.):
You gotta pass the class, man.
The Big Game…
( ALL MURMURING )
No, no, no.
I refuse, no, I pass.
Okay, good try.
Do I have any voluntary
volunteers?
Abort.
Mr. Sands? Thank you, always
a pleasure to hear from you.
It's– it's untitled.
The moonlight whispers
your name.
MALE STUDENT #2 (O.S.):
Speak up!
The moonlight whispers
your name.
Rhea.
( ALL SNICKERING )
The song of my soul.
Your eyes crash on me
sweet waves of light.
First scent of spring,
first ray of dawn.
A sip from that fountain
and I thirst no more.
A smile from your lips
and I search no more.
The world shouts between us.
But the moonlight
whispers your name.
( STUDENT MOCKING WHISPER )
Rhea.
Song of my soul.
( CLASS APPLAUDS )
( BELL RINGS )
Rhea.
Hey… uh–
I wrote that poem for you.
No, really?
Oh, Rhea, song of my bone.
Oh, no.
Oh, Rhea,
sitting in a tree.
Look, Oliver, I'm a huge
fan of forgiveness…
so let's just chalk it up to
a massive lapse in judgment…
and go our separate ways,
shall we?
No, I'd rather not.
You'd rather not?
No, I– I like you.
You like me.
Hey, bitch!
You coming?
Yeah.
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
Hi, sweetie.
You ever gonna take that down?
Yes… when I sell it.
It's embarrassing.
I did it when I was 12.
Well, I'm the curator
of this fine establishment…
and I think it shows
great talent.
Love desires reproduction
in birth and beauty.
What does that mean?
Love… makes you want
to create…
or recreate something
beautiful…
like you making art.
I think I need like
remedial Play-Doh.
Play-Doh for Dummies.
Hey!
What's with the mood?
School sucks.
This town sucks.
The world sucks…
everything sucks.
Listen, there's lots of good
people in this town.
Everyone thinks I'm a freak.
Well… your dad's a freak.
Your mom's really freaky.
So I think that makes you…
super freak.
Great.
Get used to it.
Fly that freak flag.

Hi.
Hey… you got my blue?
Mm-hm.
So… how's school?
Fine.
Fine.
Oh, god, gross.
A millennia of female nudes,
why is a male nude so shocking?
Uh, because it's Dad.
Yes, it is.
So, what am I working on today?
Before I gouge my eyes out.
The corner of the Virgin.
I've been working
on that for like a month.
Can I be done?
Thank god Da Vinci
never said that.
Yeah, but it was his.
I'm just copying it.
You think technical proficiency
comes from naively indulging
personal expression?
No, of course not, Sergeant
Take The Joy Out Of Art.
Oh, give it another hour,
then we'll tend to the equinox.
( HARP PLAYING )
Mom! I asked you not to do that
when Rhea's in the house.
I ran out of matches.
I didn't–
Rhea!
Are you almost ready?
We're ushering in a new season.
Yes, because how would
fall ever begin if we didn't
chant with flowers in our hair?
Well, I guess we'll never know.
Oh, you look beautiful.
We're immune to your flattery.
You know, some ancient peoples
actually sacrifice goats
for the equinox.
You're not sacrificing
Cleo and Marigold.
You are my harvest.
What am I, chopped liver?
Dear John,
you– you are the plowman.
( LAUGHS )
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
( MUSIC CONTINUES )
We pour this water as a symbol
of fertility, purity
and abundance.
Nymphs of goddess,
return to our Mother Earth.
Our Mother is the earth.
We breathe because She breaths.
Our Mother is the goddess.
She lives within us.
( CHANTING )
We celebrate the harvest
of Mother Earth.
She yields to us in her
bountiful love.
Blessed be the goddess.
( MUSIC ENDS )
We're now entering
the dark half of the year.
May the light of the sun
illuminate our hearts.
Thanks, Mom.
Honey?
I won't say no.
Oh, thank you.
Niko's applying to college.
Rhea, we've had this discussion.
I'm re-opening
the discussion.
You stay here and learn our
trade, our traditions.
You can pass them on
to the next generation.
I can go to college
and do that.
The world can be seductive,
Rhea.
I want to go to art school.
I think that's worth
considering.
We are the last keepers of this
ancient, goddess tradition…
and I'm not prepared to let
you throw that away.
I just want to see
what else there is.
ROSMARIE (O.C.): You know
when I was young, I wanted
experiences, adventures…
so I left here to find it,
and it was an awful time.
I lost my way.
We can't hide ourselves
from the world forever.
The reason we keep our
practice a secret is because
the world has shown…
over and over again that it
doesn't know how to be tolerant.
News flash, people are jerks.
So what?
Don't make light of it.
In the Middle Ages,
over nine–
Nine million women were
accused of witchcraft
and burned at the stake.
I know.
Including most of the women
who practiced our worship!

JOHN (O.C.)
Love…
I forgot to tell everyone.
Rhea's lighthouse painting
sold today.
That's random.
Told you.
Congratulations, sweetie.
Who's the buyer?
A nice, young man
named Oliver.
Here's the thing: you have these
limited number of variables…
that determine the path
your avatar takes.
Oh, by the way, have you seen
the film, "Avatar?" Great CGI.
RHEA (O.C.):
Oliver?
Yeah.
Hey, so,
I have a new a…
academic thing,
catch y'all later.
What are you doing?
I'm going to third period.
No, what are you doing buying
my crappy-ass painting?
It's not crappy-ass.
I'm serious.
Yeah, so am I…
it's beautiful.
Well, I want it back.
Excuse me?
I want it back!
Uh, well,
I'm no art collector…
but I'm pretty sure the 75 bucks
I shelled out means it's mine.
I'll give you 100 for it.
I'm not looking
to turn a profit.
Whatever.
This creepy stalking thing that
you're doing, it needs to stop.
Okay, fine.
I'll bring it by after school.
The old house on Clay Hill,
right?
( BELL RINGS )
Sorry.
Ugh!
( WHIMSICAL MUSIC PLAYING )
What's in there, dark dirt?
Goat feces.
Helps nourish the soil.
RHEA (O.C.):
Feces? Couldn't you
just say manure?
( GOATS BLEATING )
Hey, Cleo. Hi, Marigold!
Hey, don't be afraid
to get your hands dirty…
if you want to help
something grow.
Although, look at me,
hands full of poop.
Still no squashes.
RHEA (O.C.):
It won't grow?
It's the drought,
look at that.
Killing everybody.
( GATE CREAKS )
OLIVER (O.C.):
Hi.
Hello.
Hey.
Oh, Oliver.
I rang the bell,
but no one answered.
Something wrong
with the painting?
No, no, not at all,
I'm a big fan of it.
You can leave it by the door.
I'm gonna go get some more
goat… manure.
This place is cool.
Oh, these are awesome.
Thank you.
What, you made them?
RHEA (O.C.):
Yeah.
Nice, what are they
made out of?
Lots of stuff.
Glass bottles,
little dog food cans.
So, that's what you collect
trash for.
Yup.
Oh, I just thought
you hated litter.
I do… and waste.
Seems stupid to invest all this
time and energy making something
just to throw it away.
The crazy thing is that you took
trash and made it beautiful.
( DOOR OPENS )
OLIVER (O.C.):
I should get going.
Bye, sir.
Bye, Oliver.
He's a nice guy.
He's all right.
You gonna help me
with these squashes, or what?
Yeah.
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
Glad to see my girl's still
not afraid of gettin'
her hands dirty.
( WIND CHIMES JINGLING )
( GASPS )
Rhea! Oh!
What? What?
Oh, Rhea.
What?
I saw Rhea.
She was– she was lying
in the street.
And there was blood.
Sweetheart, sweetheart,
it's just a dream. Come on.
No, no, it was a vision.
There was fire.
There was– there was other
bodies.
Oh, we can't let her leave,
John.
We can't let her leave here,
we have to keep her safe.
Abby, Abby, we cannot keep
her here forever.
She was dying!
Hun, come on, look,
your visions–
Your visions
aren't always exact.
It's probably just–
just a dream.
Just don't worry about it.
( WOODPECKER PECKING )
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
( MUSIC CHANGES )
I think Rhea
may have found her gift.
Are you sure?
Yesterday, we were in the garden
and she touched the dirt…
where the plants were
all parched.
And today, I went out there…
and they are healthy
and fully ripe.
I am talking serious squashes.
Well, that's impossible, her
gift is not with the elements.
I think it might be.
I have sight,
my mother has the elements.
She has to have healing.
No two women can have the same
gift at the same time.
It's been that way
for centuries.
I'm just telling you
what I saw.
People, ugh… pigs.
Disgusting.
Ew.
But–
Are you just gonna
leave me here?
Like there was just vultures
ripping after me…
and I mean, they didn't do
anything bad to my body.
Hey.
Hey!
What happened to your glasses?
Poetry incident.
Dangerous stuff.
My sentiments exactly.
What are you doing
after school?
Um, I've gotta go work.
My dad, he owns
a tree removal company.
But, I mean, I could get
someone to cover me?
Meet me in front after 8th?
Yeah, yeah, okay.
Okay.
RHEA (O.C.):
What are you doing?
Unbelievable, I–
I get beat up,
you get a date.
It's a cruel universe.
Hi.
Hey.
I don't usually go on mysterious
car rides with strange women.
You think I'm strange?
Yeah.
It's like,
the best thing about you.
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
Wow.
I know.
I used to dream
about this place…
before I ever saw it,
I mean.
I'd have this recurring dream
that I was standing…
looking out over the water.
Suddenly this huge wave
would come, like…
five stories high.
And I'd feel so overwhelmed.
Wave was like this wall
of water.
Right before it was about
to swallow me, I'd wake up.
When I found it, it was like my
soul wanted to know this place.
So what was the wave?
What?
In your dream.
I don't know.
Something I'm afraid of,
I guess.
What are you afraid of?
What if–
If you had to pick one thing.
Not getting out
of this town, maybe?
That and public recitation
of poetry about me,
Yeah, I mean who
would do that?
What about you?
What, what am I afraid of?
Yeah.
Hm.
Forgetting.
Forgetting what?
My mom.
She died a few years ago.
I'm so sorry.
Tell me something you remember.
Well, when I was a kid,
my mom and I, we'd go swimming
in this lake.
And there was this little
floating dock that we'd jump off
of and swim around.
Then climb back out and jump off
and swim around again for hours.
And whenever she'd get tired,
she'd just lie out…
on this dock in the sun.
Hm.
I don't know why, but that
memory is so vivid.
There's thousands of hours spent
with her, but that's the one
that stays.
( DISTANT RUMBLING )
We should go.
No, we shouldn't.
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
Hello and from there
Where else can we go

Hello a song
I'm expectin' now to play along
With this song

You crook just a boy
Sitting there with his book

And a smile that began to turn
Leaving you
Oliver…
Just the same
As you always knew

As for me
I'm as changed as a girl can be

You grind that pigment any
harder, you're going to crack
that bowl.
Where is she?
Give the kid a break, Abby.
John thinks Rhea has the gift
of the elements.
He saw it with his own eyes.
I have the elements.
She's supposed to have healing.
Doesn't make sense.
It could.
If she has the other
two gifts…
If she has all three…
that means the prophecy
is being fulfilled.
It's happening.
What our family's been waiting
for, for centuries.
It's happening.
But what about my vision,
Mom?
If something happens to her,
what, no prophecy?
People go on destroying the
world and my Rhea ends up–
Rhea developing her gift
and your vision
are two different things.
Right now, we need to tell her
what's happening to her.
No, she's too immature,
she's not ready.
ROSMARIE (O.C.):
That is deeply unfair, Abby.
She is feeling a huge power
inside herself.
The least we can do
is give her a head's up.
No, Mom,
please don't tell her.
Hi.
Where were you?
Out.
Hi.
Why didn't you call?
I left my phone in the car.
What's the big deal?
The big deal is that something
could happen to you.
Like what?
I slip on a banana peel?
What's gonna happen?
That's not the point.
What is the point?
It's disrespectful!
I mean, we were so worried
about you. Do you get that?

Do you?
I'm sorry.
Abby!
Mom!
( METAL CLANGING )
I can't get the feet right.
What are you drawing?
Toes.
No, you're not.
You're never drawing
what you're drawing.
You're always drawing the part
in relationship to the whole.
What do you mean?
See these feet?
See how they make a circle?
Hm?
I kind of made an octagon.
The figures are all facing
in different directions…
but they're still inside
the same circle.
Kind of like you,
me and Mom.
Hm.
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
I can't believe I've been
staring at that thing
for over a month…
and I didn't see the circle.
So, why do you think
you didn't see it?
Well, I was drawing
each person separately.
I didn't see them
as part of a whole picture.
Uh-huh. So you didn't see how
everything was connected.
Right.
So what are you made of?
What am I made of?
The rocks made of,
the trees, the water.
What is it all made of?
What are you talking about?
Basic science.
What is everything made of?
Matter?
Yeah, but what's
matter made out of?
Atoms.
And atoms are made of what?
Energy and vibrations?
Yes, precisely.
So on some level, you and–
and the world around you
are the same thing.
You are–
you're not in nature.
You are nature.
Look at this water here.
You think you could
make a wave?
Grandma.
If you could make a wave…
how would you do it?
Come on.
No, don't answer.
Close your eyes.
Think about it.
I'd push the water
with my hands.
Did the water move?
Of course not, sweetheart.
So, you gonna tap that,
or what?
I'm most certainly not
gonna tap that.
He's kind of hot, though…
in a 19th century,
Jane Austin-y kind of way.
You can use him
to make Taylor jealous.
I'm over Taylor.
You're gonna choke.
What?
What?
Hello?
What up?
What–
What are you doing?
I don't know, I–
I thought I saw–
Think I'm going crazy.
You're saner than me.
That's not saying much.
Wait, what are– ew!
You are full of
an inexplicable madness.
Nah!
Nah!
Come on.
Okay, uh, important question.
If you had super powers,
would you be a super hero
or a super villain?
Easy, super villain.
What do you mean?
That's not even a question.
Super villain.
( ROCK MUSIC PLAYING )
Why is this scary for you?
Come on.
I've thought about this a lot
and I'm passionate about it.
Like I really, like thought
through the question.
Okay, so–
I desperately I really
want to be a super villain.
Okay, fine. What would your
super, evil villain power be?
Oh, oh.
I would like to see it do as
many powers as possible.
Like I have this video game that
I, that I made where you can…
you can have as many powers
as– as you want.
Whoa!
Whoa!
Don't push.
Thanks for nearly killing me.
Oh, me?
Yep.
That was fully your fault.
How would you–
I've been used to that.
( SNICKERS )
It's gonna be so cool.
You don't have boards or levels.
Suck it, sucker,
punk-ass sucker!
You're not even trying.
I'm just preoccupied.
With what?
He's applying
to graphic design programs.
Ugh, I hate college
applications.
Writing essays about
your most favoritest day…
your hero, so lame.
NIKA (O.C.):
I mean, why can't they ask
us real questions?
Like what? Like what effect
does virtual technology have…
on interpersonal human
relationships?
Something like that?
Good question.
Thanks, bro.
Right off the top
of the noggin.
So uh, where did you apply
for college?
Uh, Brown, Dartmouth,
Berkley, Columbia…
Seriously,
where did you apply?
What? I'm smart,
get over it.
Sorry,
I've gotta go to work.
Can I come?
Uh, yeah.
That's what I do.
Wow.
Yeah, it's cool.
Is all this
gonna be firewood?
Yeah, some of it.
Most of them are sick or dead,
or knocked over from the storm.
( EERIE MUSIC PLAYING )
What?
Whoa.
That's intense.
OLIVER (O.C.):
It's a giant tree stump.
You got a hose or something
around here?
You missed a spot.
What?
( ROCK MUSIC PLAYING )
He's not a boy
That you can change

Nor should you want to
He's not a boy
That you can tame

Don't matter don't you
You can wait all night
You can wait all day

He's not a boy
That you can change

Can you tell me
why we just did that?
I'm hatching a plan.
Yeah, yeah, I gathered that.
How does your dad move these?
Big, big truck.
Oh, it's gotta weigh
at least a ton.
Okay, it's hopeless.
Oh!
Oh, damn!
You okay?
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
Uh, yeah, yeah,
I guess I'm fine.
Big baby.
Shut up.
( STEPS APPROACHING )
Sorry.
You're three hours late!
I know.
I lost track of time.
It won't happen again.
I know it won't,
because you're grounded.
Grounded?
Are you kidding?
I'm not 12.
I want you here every day
after school working
with your grandmother.
If that's being grounded,
I've been grounded
my entire life!
You just need a break
from each other.
Let her work in the gallery
for a while.
She can sketch there.
Mom, stay out of it.
Abby, at least you'll know
where she is.
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
Do you know how you're like the
best dad in the whole world?
How much do you need?
I mean…
you let me leave here
in the afternoons.
Do you remember the punishment
Zeus devised for Prometheus?
Dude who stole fire
from the gods?
He sent an eagle to eat
Prometheus' liver for eternity.
It's kind of harsh.
Is that what you would want
your mom to do to me?
I'm working on something…
important.
And I need a little time.
What is it?
I can't tell you, yet!
I'd rather not lie
to your mom.
I need you to trust me.
Please?
( HAMMER TAPPING )
In my chest
I have a cage

Wrapped with a goal
Of in breathing

In the cage
I have a bow

Kept presentable for giving
For the moment
You return to me

In the bird
There's a heart

Keeps the wind
Under her feathers

In the moment
He returned to me

Fly my bird
Glide my bird
In this darkened heart of mine
Your love shined a light for me
When you're grown up
I'm alone

Light this one
Never to be gone to love

My bird fly bird
My bird fly bird

Sorry, I'm sorry.
You're late.
I know, we just–
We just need a little bit
more time.
This better be one
hell of a project.
Don't take advantage of me,
Rhea.
Want a ride?
I've got a ride.
I'll race you.
You don't stand a chance.
RHEA (O.C.):
Keep going.
More in,
farther a little bit.
Down!
Now?
Now.
Good!
Good?
Yeah.
RHEA (O.C.):
Wait a second.
What?
( CHUCKLES )
I can't believe you pulled
this off. It's incredible.
Hey, what's wrong?
I thought it
would look better.
Please don't tell me
you want to take them back.
No, no, there just–
They're not in the right place.
OLIVER (O.C.):
I– I don't think I've got the
energy to move them.
I just need to think.
The big one should be
standing upright.

How did you do that?

I was just trying to feel it,
where it belonged.

Rhea?
Hey.
Hey.
I brought some sketches
for Rhea to work off of.
Oh.
She in the back?
No, no, no, no, I sent her
to pick up a book for me.
Oh… okay.
I'll wait.
Where have you been?
I was at the gallery.
Don't lie to me!
It's not what you think.
So now you're sneaking around
behind my back.
Yes, but I want to show you
what I've been working on.
I don't even want to hear it.
I don't even want to look
at you when I'm this angry.
No, please, please.
I need you to see.
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
It's as if nature erected
a monument to itself.
Revealed every twist and turn.
It's remarkable.
This is the reproduction
of birth of beauty.
Right here.
It seems the student
is catching up with the master.
Not surpassing?
Don't get ahead of yourself.
How did you move them?
Each piece is placed perfectly.
Must have been difficult.
I've underestimated you.
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
What's up with you guys?
Where are we going?
Grandma?
( ETHEREAL MUSIC PLAYING )
Are you kidding?
Go ahead.
This is where we keep the
artifacts of our ancestors.
How come you never showed me
this place before?
Well, we're showing you now.
Who's that?
Oh, that? That's–
That's my great-great
grandmother's great grandmother.
You see,
after the witch trials…
She was burned at the stake,
right?
Yes, but her daughter
escaped…
settled here, started a new
life of art and beauty
and magic.
What kind of magic?
ABIGAIL (O.C.):
The woman who escaped, had a
gift. She could see the future.
She predicted the cholera
epidemic, the potato famine.
World War I, and she wrote
down her predictions.
And a time will come when
Earth will reject the ones
who abused it.
Then one will come forth through
the floods and the droughts…
through famine and wars.
Communion between humanity
and nature will be restored.
She will be called Blessed…
and she will be birthed
from the one with three gifts.
Oh, my god.
You know her?
I've seen her.
That means…
she has two of the gifts.
The elements and vision.
This was painted
by my great grandmother.
This was her vision
of the blessed one.
You didn't answer my question
about the magic.
Each of the women
in our family has a gift.
I have the gift of the elements,
which means…
I have the ability to…
influence the weather,
help the plants grow.
Light a candle without a match.
I have the gift of vision.
And those of us who share this
gift, we paint what we see.
So we assumed you would
have the third gift–
Stop talking, stop.
You've had these powers
my entire life and you never
told me about them?
You knew what was happening
to me, I–
I thought
I was losing my mind!
You may, in the future, give
an incredible gift to the world.
Because what? You think
I'm gonna give birth to some
chosen one or whatever?
But only if you have all
three of the gifts.
What if I don't want
these gifts?
This is much larger than us.
So what, my life's just written
out, because some freak
100 years ago said so?
No.
Can I come in?
Did you know, too?
Yeah, I did.
How could you not tell me?
Because I wanted you
to have a normal life.
I don't want this, Dad.
It's okay, it's okay.
It's okay.
Maybe you were given this gift
so that you can help.
I mean, look at this planet.
Look what we're doing
to ourselves.
Every day,
environmental disasters…
floods, tsunamis,
extreme climate change.
Maybe your mom
and grandma are right.
This is the wave.
The wave?
What's the wave?
I keep having this dream
and there's…
there's this huge wave
and it…
it's so big and overwhelming.
The prophecy, what's
happening to me, it's…
it's all the wave.
Maybe this time
you learned how to swim?
( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )
May the power of healing
work on my hand.
I can't heal.
Are you sure?
My hand's sure.
Honey, what did you do?
An experiment.
Oh, honey.
I need to show you something.
Okay.
Think not ye self,
the healer.
The healing comes before ye
and after ye.
The injured will be healed
by love in its infinity.
I don't know what that means.
Well, I think it means that…
that healing comes
from a place of love.
I still don't get it.
Okay, you, Rhea,
are not the healer.
It's the love that emanates
from your soul that
is the healer.
So…
I can't heal, because
I'm not emanating love?
I don't know.
I guess that's for you
to figure out.
The world is too much
with us, late and soon.
What are you doing?
Whoa!
I wish we could stay
here forever.
Mm, well, we have to
row home at some point.
No, thank you, sir.
What?
Are you abducting me
with your magical powers?
Maybe.
I never thought
I'd be in love with a witch.
I'm not a witch.
No, I meant that–
you do magic.
No, it's not like that.
It's like, there are spiritual
laws in the same way
there are physical laws.
If you understand them
and they'll work together…
you can kind of work with them.
Do stuff, I mean–
Like move around
giant tree stumps?
Yeah.
Is there any chance you
could teach me?
I don't really think it's
something you can teach.
You just kind of have it.
( INDISTINCT CHATTER )
Basically, there's this
thing on my porch.
It's like a goblin-type thing
and every time you walk by,
it goes–
and it freaks me out
every time.
My mom has these bowl of grapes
and she cuts them up and cuts
all the skin off…
and then you put your hands in
it and you close your eyes, and
it feels like human eyeballs.
Oh, nice.
Yeah, it's epic.
Be there or be square.
You gonna be there?
You're a square.
I'll catch you later on?
Whoa!
( LAUGHING )
What are you supposed to be?
A sweeping generalization.
I don't get it.
Whoa.
You should have just written
loser on your shirt.
Hey, that's not cool!
That's not cool.
Where's your witchy
girlfriend at?
She out riding some
other dude's broomstick?
Maybe she'll use her
evil powers to protect you.
Hey! She's not evil.
Oh, she's a good witch.
Yeah, that's right!
Oh, my god.
You serious?
Rhea Carver's a witch?
That's awesome!
Hey!
Ooh!
Maybe we should tell her,
she's so weird.
Yeah, she's a freak.
( DOOR CLOSES )
Ba-gock, ba-gock, ba-gock!
Wait, oh, no!
Hey!
Hey.
Is something wrong?
No, no, it's nothing.
Uh, Simon's having a Halloween
party tonight after dinner.
His mom made a haunted house and
we're gonna watch Saws of Death
III. You should come.
As appealing as that sounds,
I can't. We're doing
a family night.
Right, yeah, of course.
No, we don't– we don't like do
Halloween, it's just–
We lay low, it's chill.
Kinda nice.
Okay.
Do you want to come?
I've… yeah, okay.
Okay.
Okay.
Can I bring a guest tonight?
I thought Nika was going
to the Halloween party.
It's not Nika, it's Oliver.
I don't think this is a good
time to be bringing strangers
into the house, Rhea.
He's not a stranger,
he's my boyfriend.
The outside world has a bad
habit of making our lives
difficult, Rhea.
It's not like outside world,
bad, inside world, good.
Dad was the outside world.
Your father was different.
Maybe Oliver's different.
Hi.
Okay.
Really?
Yeah, really.
Thank you.
( WHIMSICAL MUSIC )
Trick or treat!
Happy Halloween.
( KNIFE CHOPPING )
Thank you.
So, Oliver, how'd you come
to love our beautiful Rhea?
Grandma!
How could I not?
( KNIFE SHARPENING )
Good answer.
How about peeling
some potatoes?
Sure.
Put the peels right in there.
Rhea, would you like
to help me set the table?
ABIGAIL (O.C.):
Anybody want some more pie?
Uh, no.
You sure?
No, I'm good, thanks.
Oh, it's fascinating. I mean,
he hated kowtowing to Caesar…
but he had to, you know?
Mm.
You know what he said to uh, to
the soldier when they finally
came to execute him in Cicero?
No.
He said uh, there is nothing
proper about what you're doing,
soldier.
But do try to kill me properly.
( LAUGHING )
JOHN (O.C.):
She stole my line.
You do that every single time.
Uh… Abi?
Someone's here.
In the house?
Outside.
( DRAMATIC MUSIC )
Son of a bitch.
Oh, my god.
MEN (O.C.):
Witches! Burn in hell!
Mom!
( TIRES SCREECHING )
( CAR SPEEDING AWAY )
Look!
Cleo!
Rhea, no!
Cleo!
No, Rhea, don't, don't,
don't.
Why would they do this?
RHEA (O.C.):
Cleo!
This is my fault.
ROSMARIE (O.C.):
How could it be your fault?
What?
No, no, I was just trying
to defend you, it just
slipped out.
What?
What'd you do?
What did you do?
I said you were a witch.
( GASPS )
No… I didn't say it
like that.
Leave.
Rhea, I'm so sorry.
Get out!
( SOBBING )
And where do you think you're
going dressed like that?
School.
Rhea…
I'm not hanging out in this
house for the rest of my life.
I'm sick of all this
goddess-save-the-world
bullshit.
Don't want to move
the earth or see things…
I just want to go to school
like a regular person.
You're not going…
I won't allow it.
Good luck with that.
Let her go, let her go.
( ROCK MUSIC PLAYING )
I feel it coming on
Drinking takes so long
It'll calm your boat
It's hard to be yourself

I've gotta take some time
Wuh-woh.
Rhea!
Gotta make it mine
I've gotta keep my cool
I work so hard

Hey, baby, why don't you
use your powers on me?
Stand back and watch me
I bet you'd like that.
Stand back as I take control
Maybe I would.
Stand back because
I won't take it any more

Stand back
And let me know

Rhea!
Taylor, where are you going?!
Taylor!
Because I won't take it anymore
Stand back
And let me go

Hey, Elaine.
( DOOR OPENS )
What's up with the hoe-bag
make-over?
So, you're a witch,
big f-ing deal.
My uncle works in the circus.
I don't know what
you're talking about.
Are you serious?
I don't want to be
a freak any more.
Rhea! Rhea!
Rhea, please!
What?
Look, I'm sorry.
I just want to apologize.
You coming or what?
Yeah!
( RAP MUSIC PLAYING )
( ENGINE REVVING )
Who is the guy
in the Mustang?
Just a guy.
Does he have a name?
Rhea?
Taylor.
Taylor Radford.
The one who's initials you used
to carve into scrap wood?
Well, here's a rare
intuitive flash from me.
I don't like him.
Whatever.
It's not so big of a deal.
You should come out
this weekend.
Anywhere in particular?
You know, just drive around
and maybe hit a couple parties.
Okay.
Yeah?
You sure?
Yeah, yes, I'd love to.
Tonight we're
Living in a fantasy

And it's all right
And it's all right

So right even though it's wrong
In the hotel where it's goin on

We's all wonderin
What's goin on

Because he and you
All truth be known

He's just a picture
Truth be told

You'd rather have me
Stretch back gonna need that

( CRASH )
Livin in a fantasy
And it's all right

And it's all right
Damn it!
Just stop it! I can't work
when you're like this.
Rhea's in trouble.
No, you're in trouble,
so full of fear.
You're driving her away…
just when she feels
the most lost!
I am not driving her away!
She's leaving!
And John, John is helping
her out the door.
John is doing a hell of a lot
more good than you are
right now!
Now keep it up and you'll
drive both of them away!
Just because you can see
the future…
doesn't give you the right to
impose your will on it!
Now just stop it!
Can I talk to you?
No, you can't.
Cannot fight any more.
I don't want to fight
any more, either.
( CRYING )
Ssh-sh.
Sorry.
I'm sorry.
I'm just scared.
I know.
Me, too.
Thank you.
For what?
Oh, for loving me.
Even when I'm–
Come on.
No.
I am not filling in
that blank, uh-uh.
Is that it?
Isn't that enough?
What are we gonna do
about Rhea?
I– I just want
my husband.
Oh, my god,
are you following me?
No, I was just running
some errands.
Yeah, right.
Okay, Rhea, I just really
need to talk to you.
I was just trying
to protect you.
Protect or control?
Okay.
Maybe both.
At least you're honest.
Look, if you want to go to art
school, then you should do that.
And…
if you don't want to carry
on our traditions,
then I'll understand.
Really?
What about the prophecy?
Honey, even if you have
all three gifts…
it's still your choice.
I have to go.
( DOOR OPENS )

Tony! Hey, Tony!
Hey!
How you guys doing?
Remember Rhea?
Rhea, good to see you.
Hey, what's up?
How you doin'?
Remember Rhea?
Rhea Carver.
Hi.
Can I get you a drink?
Yeah.
Hi, Rhea.
Hi.
Are you here with Taylor?
Here you go, babe.
Yeah.
Beaker's doing shots
in the kitchen.
You wanna watch him puke?
Sure.
MALE (O.C.):
Yo, cops!

Let's grab the keg!
Let's run, run, run.

Why is that?
Because this girl is awesome.
Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Don't be jealous, Rhea.
Yeah, don't be jealous,
just because they used
to hit it.

It was never that satisfying.

on that one.

Look, this is all my fault.
No.
If I hadn't said that–
Ssh, no.
It's not your fault.
I just couldn't handle
what was happening to me.
I wanted to be somebody else.
Why?
Why, Rhea?
You're amazing, and your
gifts, they're amazing.
They're– they're part
of what I love about you.

Autumn melts down on the ground
Its colors

The streets are filled with art
And the trees are the artists

It's magic
It's magic

I dream of the future
My sisters and my brothers

No more war
Just love for one another

It's magic
It's magic

It's magic
Follow follow follow
It's up to the pie in the sky

It's titanic
It's enormous

It's bigger bigger better
Than anything I've ever seen

It's titanic
It's enormous

It's magic it's magic
It's magic magic magic

Blossoms splash around
Calling new sensations

A choir of birds
With songs of inspiration

Magic it's magic
I looked for the stars
It's such fascination

The magic bubble off
Moves my motivation

It's magic
It's magic

It's magic
Flow let you down
Just know that magic abounds

We've been all around
I know that you're down
Just now that magic abounds

We feel it all around
I know that you're down
Just know that magic abounds

Within and all around
High in the sky

I know that you're down
Just know that magic abounds

Within and all around
All over this city
All over this city

It's magic it's magic
It's magic

It's magic it's magic

( MUSIC CHANGES )
Hello and from there
Where else can we go

Hello a song
I'm expecting now to play along
With a song

You crook
Just a boy
Sitting there with his book

And a smile
That the camera took

Leaving you just the same
As you always looked

As for me I'm as changed
As a girl can be

Can't you see
That I've flown to the edges
Of the earth and home

I've flown
From your chair

I can tell
You can tell it from there

That I may have been everywhere
But I'm back
Back to the starting square
