The walk away

Scene shifts to a trail in the woods where Michaela catches up with Zeke.

MICHAELA: Hey! [SIGHS] [SIGHS]

Zeke stops walking, and turns toward Michaela.

MICHAELA: They were out of pork rinds.

ZEKE: [SCOFFS] Figures.

Zeke starts walking again.

MICHAELA: Look. I get it, okay? The first time that I had a calling, I wanted to pretend that it wasn’t happening, too. But you can’t just run away from this.

ZEKE: I’m not. I’m just sort of walking away.

The heartache

MICHAELA: To go where? Your family?

ZEKE: I told you. I don’t have any family.

MICHAELA: What about Chloe?

Zeke stops walking, and once again turns toward Michaela

ZEKE: My sister? Yeah, she was family. She was the best version of family. And she’s dead. How did you—

Michaela shows Zeke the missing person poster.

MICHAELA: This was still hanging at the bait shop. Guy there really likes to talk.

ZEKE: Oh, I remember.

MICHAELA: Look, Zeke, I’m sorry, okay? I know how hard that kind of loss can be.

ZEKE: No, you don’t know. After Chloe died, my family was ripped apart from the inside out, and this whole area is a constant reminder of that. So what I’d really like to do right now is to leave this place and to go find the nearest bar.

A call to trust

MICHAELA: Look, I’m sorry, Zeke. I need you to show me where the cave is. I can’t explain why exactly, but I know that we need to do it together. I’m trusting you. I’m asking for you to trust me.

ZEKE: Fine. I’ll take you to the cave. But then I need to get the hell off this mountain, okay?

MICHAELA: Okay. Oh, and, uh, by the way, I lied.

Michaela tosses a bag of pork rinds to Zeke.
