- 1. - Thanks, hon.
- You got it.
- 2. - Boo.
- 3. Sorry, my mind was wandering.
- 4. Totally understand. If I just ate one
of them burgers, I'd be in a trance too.
- 5. So where's your friend?
- 6. Honey?
- 7. Your salad's up.
- 8. Give me your driver's license
- 9. - You know why I stopped you?
- 10. Afternoon.
- 11. Afternoon, sir. Hello.
- 12. Sorry about the...
- 13. We're just in the middle of moving and I—
- 14. And I'm sorry.
- 15. - Did you get my doll?
- Sweetie, hush.
- 16. It's okay.
- 17. I've got it, honey. It's a little banged up.
- 18. Anyway, sorry again.
- 19. Ever since lunch, she's been acting out.
- 20. - I'm bored.
- Well, I know what that's like.
- 21. But we need to be careful with our things
so everyone else can be safe too, right?
- 22. - We won't let it happen again, sir.
- Great. Thanks a lot.
- 23. Sweetie, stop that.
- 24. I'm so sorry. She's belted in, but—
- 25. Don't worry, it comes
with the territory. I'll get it.
- 26. Keep your head down!
- 27. Give me your hand! Give me your hand!
- 28. - Hey.
- 29. So.
- 30. That about sums it up.
- 31. I heard about your commendation.
- 32. Thanks.
- 33. Guys down at the station are saying
you might resign or something. Is that true?
- 34. My dad would kill me.
- 35. Here. Pete made me bring them over.
- 36. "Get well soon" stuff.
I guess it just keeps coming in, so...
- 37. - You wanna sit down, or...?
- 38. Stuff helping you?
- 39. Some.
- 40. You don't have to stay.
I don't really need visitors.
- 41. So you gonna shoot
for detective now, or what?
- 42. I just need a little time off.
- 43. So they still never found
the bodies from that car, right?
- 44. No.
- 45. The car wasn't even registered,
if you can believe that.
- 46. Well, who were they?
- 47. Don't know.
- 48. May never know.
- 49. Edward, I know that we haven't spoken
in a few years and things ended badly...
- 50. or I ended them badly,
to be more fair...
- 51. and I didn't wanna hurt you
any more than I did.
- 52. Now I must.
- 53. To the point. I have a daughter.
- 54. She is a perfect child,
and her name is Rowan.
- 55. She has been missing for two weeks now,
and I need your help.
- 56. I should explain.
- 57. I live on Summersisle,
a tiny place in Puget Sound.
- 58. I doubt you've heard of it.
- 59. It is where I grew up. Do you remember
how you always used to ask me?
- 60. Now you know.
- 61. Rowan couldn't have left the island
by herself. She's too young.
- 62. I have tried to find her on my own...
- 63. but am receiving little help
from the community.
- 64. I fear she is in danger,
so now I turn to you.
- 65. I pray that you'll forgive me.
- 66. Yours fondly, Willow Woodward.
- 67. Hello?
- 68. Hello?
- 69. Eddie. How's it going?
- 70. Good, thank you.
- 71. - Hi.
- 72. - Hey.
- 73. - How you doing?
- 74. - Are you back?
- Not for a couple weeks.
- 75. You didn't see this woman come in,
by any chance?
- 76. - No, why?
- Because, no stamp.
- 77. Read it.
- 78. The plot thickens.
Didn't even know you had a plot.
- 79. No kidding.
- 80. So is this, like,
some old girlfriend or something?
- 81. This Willow?
- 82. No, no, she was...
- 83. - We were engaged.
- 84. We were, you know, close,
and then she took off on me.
- 85. Yeah. Sounds like she got close
with someone else too.
- 86. And she's got the nerve
to contact you now? Shit.
- 87. I know. I know.
It's the fact that I'm a cop, I guess.
- 88. - We need to be in that briefing.
- 89. - Hey. It's good to see you.
- 90. - You're gonna blow this off, right?
- I don't know.
- 91. Yeah, I'm pissed off at her.
- 92. Come on.
- 93. You haven't seen this girl in,
like, what? Forever?
- 94. Her kid's missing, Pete, okay?
I might be all she's got.
- 95. Tell her to contact the father.
- 96. - I'm just saying.
- Yeah, I get it. I'm just—
- 97. Why don't you do a little digging
on her first? I mean, come on.
- 98. Summersisle? Where the hell is that?
- 99. Yeah. This is all I could find.
- 100. It's privately owned
out in the Pacific Northwest.
- 101. It's some sort of farming commune
- 102. Yeah, like the Amish or something.
- 103. Give her a call.
- 104. I already tried, but guess what.
There's no phone service on Summersisle.
- 105. Summersisle.
- 106. Hey, Pete, it's me.
- 107. Hey, I'm glad I got your machine,
because you'll probably laugh at me, but—
- 108. Hello?
- 109. Hello?
- 110. Ahoy there.
- 111. What was that?
- 112. I don't know
what you're supposed to say.
- 113. Then I'd just go with hello.
- 114. Right. Hello.
- 115. You know about a place
- 116. Yes, I do. I make most
of the deliveries around there.
- 117. Deliveries, huh?
- 118. Yep. Just about every day.
That's what I'm doing now.
- 119. What would I have to do
to catch a ride?
- 120. Oh, no. I don't care to lose my contract
with these folks. They're very particular.
- 121. All right, then just drop me down
on the beach...
- 122. or whatever they have,
and I'll walk into town.
- 123. The answer's still no.
- 124. It's just a few miles.
I could practically swim that.
- 125. You better start swimming, then.
- 126. Why? What's the big deal?
- 127. Because it's private.
It's off-limits, and we respect that.
- 128. We're all private people around here.
- 129. Yeah, but you're so warm and open,
it really makes up for it.
- 130. I'm just kidding.
- 131. Okay, look, how about
you take all of us there?
- 132. What do you mean, "all"?
- 133. Well, me...
- 134. Mr. Grant here
and his twin brother Ulysses.
- 135. Lost your bearings?
- 136. Oh, hey. Sorry.
You snuck up on me there.
- 137. I don't think so.
- 138. - This is Summersisle, right?
- 139. - In the right place.
- Afraid not. This is private property.
- 140. You can't land here without permission.
- 141. Listen, I completely understand,
but I was invited here.
- 142. - I'm a cop.
- And what does that mean?
- 143. A police officer.
I do what I can for people. Help them out.
- 144. Now, a complaint has been made
by a resident of this island.
- 145. A complaint, you say?
- 146. Yes, ma'am. About a missing child.
- 147. Well, now, that's always trouble.
- 148. Yep. For everybody.
- 149. Perhaps you should take these matters up
with Sister Summersisle.
- 150. She's very particular
about anyone landing here.
- 151. How did you land here, by the way?
- 152. Was it the harbor pilot?
- 153. He just—
- 154. He'll need a good talking-to.
- 155. What's in the bag?
A shark or something?
- 156. Do you know her?
- 157. I don't recognize this child.
- 158. - Do you, Violet?
- No. Can't say I do.
- 159. Just a tip there. It often helps
to actually glance at the photo.
- 160. What are you telling me?
This girl isn't from the island?
- 161. Doesn't appear to be.
- 162. Her mother's name is Willow.
- 163. Sister Willow.
- 164. She quite slipped my mind.
- 165. Yes, we have a Willow here, all right.
- 166. - Just up the way at the meetinghouse.
- What a coincidence.
- 167. Bit of a free spirit.
- 168. Your bag is dripping.
- 169. Go on.
- 170. Take a peek.
- 171. That's not her daughter.
- 172. Must be ladies' night.
- 173. Hi. Are you the barmaid in here,
or whatever you call it?
- 174. I'm Sister Beech, yes.
- 175. And you're that officer from California?
- 176. That's right. Name is Malus.
- 177. Edward Malus.
I'd just like a room and a meal.
- 178. - Can you swing it?
- Swing what?
- 179. Is that some kind of city talk?
- 180. Manage. That's what he means.
Can we manage to put him up?
- 181. Well, since he didn't take the hint
and leave, I suppose we'll have to.
- 182. For one night, at least.
- 183. Welcome.
- 184. This is Mr. Malus,
an officer from the mainland.
- 185. - And this is—
- 186. Of course.
- 187. She'll show you upstairs.
- 188. There's an empty room on the top floor.
- 189. I think I'll have a drink first.
- 190. As long as I'm not intruding.
- 191. This here is mead.
It's one of the pleasures of our island.
- 192. A brew of honey, herbs...
- 193. and whatnot.
- 194. Thanks.
- 195. Yeah.
- 196. I think you ought to know.
- 197. I think you all should know
that I'm here on business.
- 198. This is official police business and I wanna
speak to each one of you at some point.
- 199. Official California business, is it?
- 200. Because this is Washington.
- 201. I'm aware of that.
- 202. - Then fine.
- 203. Mrs. Beech, it is not fine.
It is anything but fine when a person is lost.
- 204. Especially a child.
- 205. Now, why would you go
and do a thing like that?
- 206. Sorry, I'm allergic.
- 207. I am being watched,
but we must try to speak later in private.
- 208. There's a place out beyond the point.
Meet me there in an hour.
- 209. Edward, be careful
and believe nothing that you see or hear.
- 210. My God, to see your face again...
- 211. You know, traditionally, the guy gets
his ring back when the fiancée runs away.
- 212. I still wear it, sort of.
- 213. I don't know what I would've done
if you hadn't come.
- 214. - How could I not?
- 215. You could've thought I was a madwoman
or something raving about my lost daughter.
- 216. They all do.
- 217. Look, I'm barely adjusted to the fact
that you have a daughter, okay?
- 218. So let's go slow here.
- 219. So...
- 220. No. No.
- 221. That's the only way to start this.
What in the hell happened to you?
- 222. I didn't...
- 223. Look, it was a long time ago.
We were young.
- 224. So what?
- 225. Well, why do we do anything in this life?
- 226. I need some kind of answer here.
- 227. Was it some other guy, or...?
- 228. I mean, obviously,
you met someone, but—
- 229. Look, I was scared and...
- 230. I don't know, I just—
I wasn't ready for this...
- 231. so I ran back home.
- 232. It's quite a home, by the way.
- 233. We're different here. I know that.
- 234. If you've grown up around it,
it's one thing, but it's...
- 235. Yes, odd.
- 236. Anyway...
- 237. My daughter is what matters
to me now. Rowan.
- 238. Why do this?
- 239. Stir this all up again? It's so...
- 240. Why don't you just
get her dad to help you?
- 241. Because the only person I trust is you.
- 242. Even after all these years.
- 243. Edward.
- 244. People will try to mislead you, they will,
but you must trust me.
- 245. - I wanna help you, but—
- No, she has been taken.
- 246. By who, I don't know. I don't.
But my little girl is still here.
- 247. I promise you, if she's here, I'll find her.
- 248. - I know you will.
- I'm gonna need to ask you some questions.
- 249. Okay. I'll meet you again
as soon as it's safe. I have to go now.
- 250. Leave us.
- 251. Greetings, Sister Beech.
- 252. A lovely evening.
- 253. It is indeed. Welcome, all.
- 254. Will Sister Summersisle bless us
with her presence?
- 255. I'm afraid not.
- 256. Enjoy the night. Only, make sure
you're ready for the day of tomorrow.
- 257. The time of death and rebirth.
- 258. - Yes. Of the Wicker Man's return.
- Yes. Of the Wicker Man's return.
- 259. Excuse me.
- 260. Did someone unpack my bag?
Because I'm missing some tapes.
- 261. - I wouldn't know.
- They're called Everything's OK!
- 262. Good.
- 263. Edward, I know that we haven't spoken
in a few years and things ended badly...
- 264. or I ended them badly, to be more fair.
- 265. I didn't wanna hurt you
any more than I did.
- 266. Now I must.
- 267. That's not her daughter.
- 268. Did you get my doll?
- 269. Yeah, I got it, honey.
It's a little banged up.
- 270. Rowan?
- 271. Rowan?
- 272. Rowan?
- 273. Hello?
- 274. Rowan?
- 275. Why do you have store-bought?
I thought you made this stuff here.
- 276. Look, I just serve what I'm handed.
- 277. If you don't like it, you'll have
to talk to Sister Beech, all right?
- 278. What's with this "sister" thing, anyway?
- 279. It's just our way.
We don't have any Royal Honey for you.
- 280. None at all?
- 281. No, not a drop.
- 282. Our crop was cursed last year.
- 283. I might find you
a little bit of sugar.
- 284. All right.
- 285. Okay.
- 286. Mr. Malus? Your sweetener.
- 287. Thanks. What are these?
Festivals of some kind?
- 288. That's right, our Harvest Festival.
We have one the end of each autumn.
- 289. And then the Festival of Fertility too,
- 290. But that's too sacred.
No pictures can be taken of that.
- 291. What happened to last year's?
- 292. Afraid it got ruined last night. Broke.
- 293. Hey. I meant to ask you in there,
do you recognize this girl?
- 294. No?
- 295. - Where's the other woman who works here?
- She's gone up to the village school.
- 296. Where is that?
- 297. Up the hill and through the woods.
- 298. All right. Perfect.
- 299. Look, I'm sorry.
- 300. What's happening here
the day of tomorrow?
- 301. You mean, the day after tomorrow?
It's kind of a strange way to put it.
- 302. Yeah, I suppose.
I thought the other was a local expression.
- 303. Let's see.
- 304. The day after tomorrow would be
May the 2nd. Nothing, as far as I know.
- 305. No, I mean tomorrow.
What's happening here then?
- 306. I told you.
- 307. You did?
- 308. When you leave,
will you take me with you?
- 309. Hi.
- 310. Good morning.
- 311. And, Daisy, will you tell us
what man represents in his purest form?
- 312. - Yes.
- Phallic symbol. Phallic symbol.
- 313. School's really changed
since I was a kid.
- 314. How dare you stand there
and frighten my children.
- 315. Sorry. I'm Edward Malus from California.
- 316. I'm a policeman. See my badge?
- 317. I was unaware
any of my girls needed arresting.
- 318. They don't, no.
- 319. I'm here to find a missing girl
whom people are pretending doesn't exist.
- 320. - How quixotic of you.
- 321. From Don Quixote, pursuer of lofty
but impractical ideals.
- 322. Usually a man.
- 323. Look, I just need to speak
to Willow Woodward. Is she here?
- 324. Already gone, I'm afraid. You're late.
And the law won't help you with that.
- 325. Let me have your attention
for a second.
- 326. As you might've heard, I'm here to verify
the whereabouts of a young girl.
- 327. - What's your name?
- 328. Lily, I'm Officer Ed. Hi.
- 329. Could you pass that around
for me, sweetheart?
- 330. That is her name, Rowan Woodward.
- 331. Do any of you recognize the name
or the photograph?
- 332. There's your answer.
- 333. If she existed, we would know of her.
Now, will you please go?
- 334. Whose desk is this?
- 335. What?
- 336. We trapped the little bird inside
to see how long he can stand it.
- 337. Now, why in the hell would you
let them do a sick thing like that?
- 338. - Where's the attendance?
- You have Sister Summersisle's authority?
- 339. No, I do not have—
You forget that this is a legal matter.
- 340. Well, I'm afraid
you still need her permission.
- 341. Put that back. Put that back.
- 342. Sorry. You're gonna have
to bear with me.
- 343. You little liars.
- 344. Rowan Woodward is your classmate,
- 345. Isn't she? That is her desk.
- 346. You're the biggest liar.
- 347. I'm warning you, you tell me another
and I'll arrest you myself.
- 348. That is a promise, Miss...?
- 349. Rose. Sister Rose.
- 350. Of course. Another plant. Rose.
- 351. For the last time, where is this girl?
- 352. I'll speak to you outside.
- 353. Girls, continue with your compositions.
- 354. - Well?
- You don't understand.
- 355. That's exactly right. I do not understand.
But I'm going to.
- 356. Mr. Malus, no one is lying to you.
- 357. I told you that if Rowan Woodward existed,
we'd know of her.
- 358. If she existed? If?
- 359. - But you cannot come barging into our—
- I saw that she existed with my own eyes.
- 360. And I suppose her mother is lying
to me too, huh? She's lying?
- 361. Not lying, no.
- 362. Grieving.
- 363. We all are.
- 364. Wait, wait, wait.
When you say that she's grieving...
- 365. you mean that Rowan is dead?
- 366. You would say so. Yes.
- 367. - She's dead or she isn't?
- We never use that word here.
- 368. No, that'd be too quixotic.
- 369. Yes.
- 370. You see, we believe that after
the human life is over, the soul lives on...
- 371. in air, in the trees, in animals,
in fire, even.
- 372. All right, all right, just— Come on.
Tell me what happened to her. Honestly.
- 373. - It was an accident.
- What kind of accident? How?
- 374. Mr. Malus, it was an accident.
Leave things alone, please.
- 375. Now, if that's true, where's her body?
- 376. Exactly where you would expect it to be.
In the earth.
- 377. In a churchyard?
- 378. Her mother insisted.
- 379. Now, if you will excuse me,
I have to get back to my class.
- 380. Wait, wait, Miss Ro— Sister Rose.
Wait a minute.
- 381. How'd she die?
- 382. She'll burn to death.
- 383. What? What'd you just say?
- 384. Precisely what I meant to.
She burned to death.
- 385. Excuse me.
- 386. - Is there some church near here?
- 387. Down the hill.
- 388. Hey, didn't I just speak with you?
Miss Rose— Sister Rose.
- 389. No, you didn't.
- 390. - That's not Rowan's grave.
- All right.
- 391. It isn't. I know that this seems...
- 392. But they put it there. I didn't.
- 393. Who's "they"?
- 394. I don't know.
- 395. Whoever's doing this, trying to make—
- 396. It's not much now,
but it used to be lovely.
- 397. That's what they say, anyway.
- 398. It was built before
my ancestors came here.
- 399. That's the crypt, but it's all flooded.
- 400. It's a new lock.
- 401. Rowan is alive.
- 402. That's not what folks
have been telling me.
- 403. I've heard that she doesn't exist,
that she's buried in that graveyard...
- 404. even that she's...
- 405. She burnt to death.
- 406. The liars!
They can't accept her, or won't.
- 407. They seem to blame her for all—
- 408. Edward, I think
they're gonna hurt her, or even—
- 409. Why would they?
I'm trying to understand. I am.
- 410. But why?
- 411. I ran off once, tried to get away.
They think I'm too proud, or that I—
- 412. Sister Summersisle has never been
very fond of my wild ways.
- 413. Yeah, that name keeps coming up.
- 414. - Who is she?
- She's everything.
- 415. Everything you see,
all of it, really, is her.
- 416. The rest of us, we just—
We live in her shadow.
- 417. Me, especially.
- 418. They're all saying I've lost it?
- 419. I haven't, Edward.
- 420. I promise, I haven't. She's—
- 421. I can't let them do this to me.
- 422. Do what?
What is it you're not telling me?
- 423. Forgive me?
- 424. Forgive you for...?
- 425. I'm lost.
- 426. I don't know.
- 427. Don't worry, it's...
- 428. You know?
- 429. No. I don't know. I do not know
that our daughter's gonna be okay.
- 430. Now you know
what I've been trying to tell you.
- 431. Why I need you to help me.
- 432. You're telling me I'm Rowan's father?
- 433. Yes.
- 434. That's not right.
- 435. You should have told me, Willow.
- 436. So this is where you last saw Rowan?
- 437. Yeah?
- 438. Can you give me the details?
- 439. Yeah. The last time I saw her was...
- 440. She was sitting there at the desk.
- 441. Rowan loves to draw.
- 442. And swim. You know,
she can swim like some—
- 443. Swim. Okay.
- 444. So you go out, right? You went out.
- 445. Only down to the market.
For no more than a half-hour.
- 446. - And you get back, and what?
- And she was gone.
- 447. Vanished.
- 448. And all her things, her toys,
books, everything, it's like they—
- 449. What was she wearing?
- 450. A sweater I made her.
- 451. The one in the photo. She had that on.
- 452. She dresses like every other child
on this island.
- 453. - Do you have any other photographs of her?
- 454. We didn't have many.
I mean, with only Dr. Moss taking them.
- 455. Dr. Moss?
- 456. And you're sure it's no way
it could be someone from off the island?
- 457. No.
- 458. They're careful about
who they allow here.
- 459. Was Rowan depressed at all?
- 460. Have you seen what she's drawn
underneath her desk? It's disturbing.
- 461. Edward, I know that.
- 462. What are you doing?
- 463. The plane. I need its radio.
- 464. Wait for me.
- 465. Hello?
- 466. Hello?
- 467. Where is this guy?
- 468. Rowan?
- 469. Rowan!
- 470. Goddamn it!
- 471. You're persistent. I'm on my way out,
but perhaps I can help in some way?
- 472. I need to ask a couple of questions.
- 473. It's quick.
- 474. Things are rarely quick.
- 475. Come inside, then.
- 476. Thank you.
- 477. You're T.H. Moss, the photographer.
- 478. I'm first a physician,
second a photographer. A distant second.
- 479. Did you want your picture taken?
- 480. So you take the Harvest Festival
photographs every year?
- 481. The ones I saw up at the tavern?
- 482. Yes, it's a rather humdrum affair,
- 483. My mother passed the skill on to me,
as her mother before her.
- 484. Your mother. Of course.
Do you have last year's photographs?
- 485. - Isn't it there with the others?
- No. No, apparently it got destroyed.
- 486. What a pity.
- 487. Do you have a copy?
- 488. I have the negative. I could have
one printed up for you, if you like.
- 489. That'd be great.
- 490. Thanks.
- 491. It's time, sister.
- 492. We must hurry.
- 493. "In societies as disparate as ancient Egypt
and pre-Columbian Incan...
- 494. fertility festivals were utilized
in much the same way.
- 495. A younger woman was chosen
to personify fertility...
- 496. and then killed in a blood ritual
by the presiding priesthood.
- 497. This gesture was thought to guarantee
a successful harvest for the coming year.
- 498. In Europe and the Americas, on the
other hand, the offering was often burnt."
- 499. Burnt.
- 500. Oh, God.
- 501. "Rowan Woodward Goddess."
- 502. "Worst harvest on record."
- 503. Hey.
- 504. What the hell is this?
- 505. - It's a picture, that's all.
- No, that is not all!
- 506. Why didn't you tell me Rowan was a part
of all this, huh? These rituals?
- 507. I don't know.
- 508. Try, because I'm bouncing around
in circles and I can use some help!
- 509. - Edward, why are you yelling at me?
- How about this, for starters:
- 510. Our daughter is part
of your worst harvest on record.
- 511. You said they blamed her.
Why didn't you tell me about this?
- 512. It's just— It's a ceremony that we have.
- 513. I don't know anything else.
- 514. You live here! You must know something.
- 515. You mentioned this ceremony.
- 516. What is the day of death and rebirth?
- 517. It's a story. That's all it is, a story.
- 518. I'm trying to trust you, but when I turn
my head, something doesn't make sense.
- 519. Well, I'm frightened of this place too.
- 520. I was happy to leave here when I did.
Even though I came back...
- 521. I wish I hadn't.
- 522. I wish that I stayed
and made a life with you...
- 523. been with you all these years,
but I didn't.
- 524. I came back here and had our child,
and now she's—
- 525. Okay. All right. I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to...
- 526. Doesn't matter. Doesn't matter.
- 527. We'll keep looking.
- 528. I'm gonna see this Summersisle lady.
- 529. We have to check everything
if we're gonna find Rowan.
- 530. If?
- 531. If we find her?
- 532. No. When. When we find her.
- 533. Let me give you a hand.
Want some help?
- 534. You okay?
- 535. Can't you talk?
- 536. Keep your head down!
- 537. If she existed, we would know of her.
Now, will you please go?
- 538. Rowan Woodward is your classmate,
- 539. Isn't she?
- 540. Had a scare, didn't we?
You've been sleeping for several hours.
- 541. Where am I?
- 542. This is the home of Sister Summersisle.
- 543. Ivy?
- 544. Did you use my kit?
- 545. - The adrenaline shot, or—?
- Oh, no.
- 546. Nothing like that.
- 547. When they brought me to you,
you were near death, clearly.
- 548. So I treated the danger in the old way.
- 549. You are alive. That's what's important.
- 550. I'm here to see Sister Summersisle.
- 551. Yes. She's out front now.
- 552. And she's been expecting you.
- 553. They nearly had you.
- 554. Excuse me?
- 555. Our little friends, the bees.
- 556. They almost did you in.
- 557. Yeah.
- 558. Pity.
- 559. Pity, what? They nearly did or didn't?
- 560. Some of our keepers found you,
down near the stables.
- 561. Unconscious.
- 562. Yeah. Beekeepers.
They seem to be everywhere on the island.
- 563. Oh, yes. It takes quite a few of them
to keep order around here.
- 564. I'm sure.
- 565. I can tell what she sees in you.
- 566. A kind of rough potential.
- 567. Thanks, I guess.
- 568. So I hear you were expecting me.
- 569. Why's that?
- 570. Just a matter of time
before you came here.
- 571. I believe you're looking for a child?
- 572. - I might have found her.
- 573. Not exactly.
- 574. In a grave.
- 575. And I'd like your permission
to exhume the body, if one exists...
- 576. and have it removed for an autopsy.
- 577. You suspect foul play?
- 578. Yeah. Murder.
- 579. How perplexing for you.
- 580. In that case, you must carry on.
- 581. You don't seem very concerned.
- 582. No.
- 583. I suppose because I have...
- 584. confidence that your suspicions
- 585. We don't murder here.
- 586. Yeah. Well, even if a victim complies,
it's still murder.
- 587. Well, perhaps where you come from.
- 588. But we have our own beliefs.
- 589. Right, right, right.
- 590. The festivals. All those offerings.
To whom, exactly?
- 591. To the great Mother Goddess
who rules this island...
- 592. with me as her earthly representative.
- 593. You?
- 594. I'm the spiritual heart of this colony.
- 595. You honestly encourage
this sort of worship?
- 596. Come on. It's so nice. Let's wander.
- 597. My Celtic ancestors, all the way back...
- 598. rebelled against the suppression
of the feminine.
- 599. So in the late 17th century,
they fled to the New World.
- 600. Unfortunately, they settled near Salem.
- 601. So when they saw that
the persecution continued, even here...
- 602. well, that started a long
and painful migration westward.
- 603. In the 1850s, my great-great-grandmother
led a group of people here...
- 604. and vowed never to enter
into that other world again.
- 605. How's that possible? You can't just—
- 606. Oh, those pioneers needed
little urging to isolate.
- 607. They were looking
for a simpler way of life.
- 608. Of course, some do leave,
like our Willow...
- 609. you know, to test themselves or us.
- 610. Or to find a man.
- 611. But they always come home, eventually.
- 612. - Men are what, second-class citizens?
- No, not at all. We love our men.
- 613. We're just not subservient to them.
- 614. The men are a very important part
of our little colony.
- 615. Breeding, you know.
- 616. God.
- 617. Quite a little racket you've got going
for yourself here. Breeding?
- 618. Sounds like inbreeding to me.
- 619. Please don't criticize
what you know nothing about.
- 620. Don't any of you wanna just be
with someone? Fall in love?
- 621. We procreate because
that's the desire of the Goddess.
- 622. To assure ourselves of worthy offspring.
- 623. The strongest, the finest,
the most sturdy of our kind.
- 624. I see. Female, right?
- 625. And what if someone just happens
to have a boy? What do you do then?
- 626. That depends.
- 627. Let me ask you one other thing,
because, frankly, I just don't get you.
- 628. I do not get this place.
- 629. Oh, you will. In time, perhaps.
- 630. Perhaps it is time for you
to stop bullshitting me, okay?
- 631. Now, you be careful.
- 632. Especially when a little girl's life
is at stake. My little girl.
- 633. I'm sure you've guessed.
- 634. As a matter of fact, yes.
- 635. I'm only interested in the law, sister.
- 636. I need to remind you, you are still within
reach of the powers of a normal society.
- 637. So if you wackos practice kidnapping
and ritualized murder, it is my job—
- 638. I believe I've mentioned
our stand on murder.
- 639. Murder is murder.
- 640. Now, do I have permission to open
the grave of Rowan Woodward?
- 641. I was under the impression
I'd already given it to you.
- 642. Your transport.
- 643. Well, it's just been fascinating to converse
with someone from a normal society.
- 644. Till we meet again.
- 645. Rowan?
- 646. Rowan?
- 647. Rowan?
- 648. Rowan?
- 649. Rowan?
- 650. Rowan? Rowan!
- 651. Help!
- 652. Hey!
- 653. Help!
- 654. Help!
- 655. My daughter is what matters
to me now. Rowan.
- 656. I wish that I stayed and made a life
with you, but I didn't.
- 657. I came back here and had our child,
and now she's...
- 658. - Well, who were they?
- Don't know.
- 659. May never know.
- 660. Edward?
- 661. I'm down here.
- 662. Edward?
- 663. Yeah. Somebody shut the lid.
- 664. - I'm coming.
- Oh, God.
- 665. Willow. Look. Look at this.
- 666. She was here. She was down there.
Somebody's keeping her here.
- 667. I wanna show you something else.
- 668. This hers? Tell me!
- 669. Yes, I think it— Yeah, but—
- 670. How'd it get burned?
How'd it get burned?
- 671. How'd it get burned?
- 672. I don't know!
- 673. - Where are you going?
- To her place.
- 674. - I'm coming with you.
- No, Willow! I mean it.
- 675. But maybe if we—
- 676. Why are you—?
- 677. Why are you looking at me like that?
- 678. Something bad is about to happen.
I can feel it.
- 679. Go to the house and lock yourself in.
I'll come back for you.
- 680. Go! Now!
- 681. Summersisle!
- 682. Summersisle?
- 683. Summersisle!
- 684. Summersisle?
- 685. Summersisle!
- 686. Summersisle!
- 687. Summersisle?
- 688. Summersisle!
- 689. Summersisle!
- 690. He's gone now.
- 691. Excellent.
- 692. - What's with the feathers?
- We're all preparing.
- 693. - For what? A celebration?
- Oh, yes.
- 694. Of death and rebirth.
- 695. Sister Rose, she's only a child.
- 696. You're a teacher.
Think about what you're doing.
- 697. The time for sentiment is over.
The moment has come.
- 698. I won't let her die.
- 699. So gallant, Sir Knight.
Still tilting windmills, I see.
- 700. Right until the end.
- 701. Get off the bike.
- 702. Get off the bike.
- 703. Step away from the bike.
- 704. Take your stupid mask.
- 705. - It is he.
- It is he.
- 706. I need your help. All of you.
- 707. Can't you hear me?
I said I need your help.
- 708. Don't be afraid.
- 709. I'm looking for a missing girl.
Take that mask off your kid.
- 710. You wait a minute! Do you have
permission to charge in and disturb—?
- 711. No! I don't need anybody's
- 712. I'm gonna search every inch of this town
and anybody who interferes...
- 713. will be brought up on murder charges,
- 714. You have my permission
to stay out of the fucking way!
- 715. Hey! Take those masks off.
- 716. - Hey! Stop it!
- Come here.
- 717. - Go away. Don't.
- Get out.
- 718. Rowan?
- 719. Rowan?
- 720. I trust you won't have to let
your costume out again this year, sister.
- 721. Very soon you'll be
an entire family of bears.
- 722. Oh, I'll manage, Sister Oak.
- 723. It does seem to shrink
a bit each year, however.
- 724. So, sister, did you see
to that business at the harbor?
- 725. Oh, yes. Just as you instructed.
- 726. Now I'll be off.
- 727. Well, well.
- 728. You look a bit worse for wear,
now, don't you?
- 729. O Goddess of the Fields...
- 730. I bring this humble colony before you
on this day.
- 731. This most sacred of days.
- 732. Please accept our offering.
- 733. Hail, Goddess of the Fields.
Accept our offering.
- 734. That you will once again
in the year to come...
- 735. bestow on us
the rich and diverse fruits of thy realm.
- 736. God!
- 737. I thought I told you to wait for me.
- 738. What do you mean? I had to come.
- 739. And now...
- 740. we fulfill our deepest purpose...
- 741. to balance the forces of dark and light.
- 742. Oh, good God.
- 743. What is it? What's wrong, sister?
- 744. Don't be frightened.
- 745. Go.
- 746. My name is Edward. I'm gonna save you.
- 747. Come on. This way.
- 748. Hurry.
- 749. Wait. Rowan. Rowan, wait. Wait.
- 750. Hello? Hello? Pete! Pete! Help us!
- 751. Help! Please! Please help!
- 752. Come on. Let's go.
- 753. Rowan. Honey. Slow down.
- 754. Rowan, slow down.
- 755. Rowan! Rowan, stop!
- 756. Did I do it right, Mommy? Did I?
- 757. Yes, my love.
- 758. Oh, my little Rowan.
- 759. You did it excellently.
- 760. Don't touch her! Do not touch her!
- 761. Rowan, come back here.
- 762. Welcome, Mr. Malus.
- 763. You have come of your own free will...
- 764. to keep this appointment
with the Wicker Man.
- 765. Stay back!
- 766. And now the game is over.
- 767. The game of the hunter
leading the hunted.
- 768. You came to find our little Rowan.
- 769. But it is we who have found you,
just as we intended to do.
- 770. I don't understand. Rowan was missing.
I had to come. I had a letter.
- 771. Willow, tell them.
- 772. Willow, please tell them.
- 773. The letter was from all of us here.
- 774. Your invitation to visit...
- 775. one might say.
- 776. You were just the man we needed.
- 777. And we were determined to get you here.
- 778. Notice how we led you to believe...
- 779. that your daughter would be sacrificed
due to the failure of the crops last year.
- 780. But they did fail. I saw the photo.
- 781. Yes, they failed, all right.
- 782. One of the few times
since my ancestors moved here.
- 783. But we are always prepared
with a powerful sacrifice.
- 784. And that, my friend, is your destiny.
- 785. - It is your destiny.
- Back up!
- 786. What we require is a stranger,
yet one who is connected to us.
- 787. - He's connected to us.
- He's connected to us.
- 788. Connected by blood.
- 789. Willow.
- 790. Why have you done this to me?
- 791. We orchestrated all of this
with the greatest care...
- 792. everything that's happened.
- 793. Be proud of yourself.
You have done so well.
- 794. Yes. My daughter speaks the truth.
- 795. Your fate was sealed many years ago
when she chose to be with you.
- 796. Your daughter?
- 797. Yes. My Willow.
- 798. This is a story whose chapters
were carefully written.
- 799. You have been chosen
to die a martyr's death.
- 800. You will sit beside the gods and goddesses
for all of eternity.
- 801. Back up! I swear to God, I will shoot you!
- 802. It is a great honor,
one that you cannot refuse.
- 803. It is ordained.
- 804. There is no way out.
- 805. Stay back!
- 806. You bitches!
- 807. You bitches!
- 808. This is murder! Murder!
- 809. You'll all be guilty!
- 810. And you're doing it for nothing!
- 811. Killing me won't bring back
your goddamn honey!
- 812. But I know it will.
- 813. Oh, God.
- 814. How can it?
- 815. I'm not one of you!
- 816. I don't believe in your gods!
- 817. I don't believe in sacrifice.
- 818. Oh, God.
- 819. No, don't— Don't move me!
- 820. What is it? What is it?
- 821. What is that? What is that?
What is it?
- 822. Oh, no. No, not the bees!
Not the bees!
- 823. They're in my eyes! My eyes!
- 824. We'll do it your way this time.
- 825. I must keep you alive.
- 826. Oh, God.
- 827. Oh, my God. Oh, my God!
- 828. O gods and goddesses of nature.
- 829. Receive this sacrifice and be appeased.
- 830. Gods and goddesses of nature.
- 831. Receive this sacrifice and be appeased.
- 832. Rowan.
- 833. No. Rowan!
- 834. No, Rowan, don't! Put it down! No!
- 835. Put it down!
- 836. Rowan!
- 837. Put it down, honey. Put it down.
- 838. Rowan, no! No!
- 839. No!
- 840. The drone must die!
- 841. The drone must die!
- 842. The drone must die!
- 843. The drone must die!
- 844. The drone must die!
