#102 : Résurrection - 2ème partie

Titre VO : What it seems

Johnny a une vision effroyable : celle d’un tueur en série prêt à tuer une infirmière de l’hôpital. Avec Bruce, son kinésithérapeute et nouvel ami, il se rend chez l’infirmière mais trouve la maison vide. Ce qu’il ne sait pas, c’est que l’infirmière est partie chez sa sœur, et qu’en l’appelant pour la prévenir du danger, il l’a sauvée au détriment d’une autre victime. Il aide alors le shériff Bannerman à trouver le tueur qui se trouve être un policier.

...

Durant un orage, Johnny et Bruce pénètrent dans la maison d'Alyson par la fenêtre de la cave. Ils montent à l'étage mais ne trouvent personne. Johnny touche plein d'objets pour avoir une vision mais il ne voit rien. Selon Bruce, Johnny n'a pas de vision car il fait trop d'efforts. Mais Johnny, lui, pense qu'elle est déjà morte.


GÉNÉRIQUE


Johnny et Bruce vont au commissariat pour signaler la disparition d'Alyson. Mais les policiers ne prennent pas Johnny au sérieux quand il dit qu'il a eu une vision. C'est alors que Walt arrive et rencontre Johnny. Il ne semble pas le connaître tandis que Johnny lui sait qui il est. Dana se présente également à Johnny mais Walt lui dit de ne pas répondre aux questions et de le suivre dans son bureau seul. Ils parlent du don de Johnny et celui-ci parle de son accident. Walt le reconnaît enfin et ne semble pas très heureux de le voir. John explique à Walt qu'il se moque de ce que les autres pensent et lui révèle l'endroit où est enterrée Alyson.

Johnny et Walt sortent alors du bureau. Walt demande à ses hommes de patrouiller dans le coin. Walt envoie balader Dana qui ne semble pas vouloir partir du commissariat.

Walt rentre chez lui. Sarah le salue avec un baiser puis va lui préparer quelque chose
à manger. Ils parlent de Johnny et Walt ne veut pas que JJ (Johnny Junior) aille voir Johnny seul. Sarah lui dit qu'ils ont beaucoup de points en communs et qu'ils finiront par devenir amis. Elle voudrait également inviter Johnny pour un diner la semaine prochaine, ce qui n'enchante pas Walt. Sarah le rassure en lui disant qu'elle l'aime.

Johnny marche dans la rue lorsqu'une limousine blanche s'arrête proche de lui. Le révérant Purdy en sort et marche avec lui. Johnny lui dit qu'il faut qu'il fasse 15 Km par jour. Purdy informe Johnny qu'il lui a ouvert un compte à la banque et qu'il lui a fait livrer des cartes de crédit. Johnny le remercie d'avoir veillé sur sa mère avant qu'elle ne meure. Purdy lui demande s'il a des projets mais Johnny répond que non. Il lui demande d'aller voir ce que sa mère a donné à l'Alliance de l'Héritage. Johnny décline l'offre et lui dit qu'il ne croit pas au surnaturel. Purdy semble étonné. Il veut lui serrer la main mais Johnny lui répond qu'il n'aime pas toucher des personnes depuis son coma. Purdy entre dans sa limousine et part. Johnny arrive devant chez Alyson et touche la boîte aux lettres. Il a alors une vision où il est le facteur et est attaqué par un chien. Il va dans la cour arrière et touche le sol. Il se voit regardant sous la fenêtre d'Alyson lors d'un orage mais Walt interrompt sa vision. Johnny lui explique que le meurtrier était là et qu'il avait observé Alyson. Il lui décrit les bottes de l'homme et Walt lui confirme que c'est bien les mêmes bottes. Il lui alors demande quelle est sa taille de bottes et Johnny lui répond 40 (le meurtrier fait du 43,5). Walt lui dit que maintenant la majorité des policiers de la ville va l'accuser. Le shérif lui demande pourquoi la vitre est brisée et John lui répond que c'est lui qui l'a fait. Walt lui demande de quitter la propriété d'Alyson et le prie de ne pas accepter l'invitation de Sarah à dîner. Johnny lui dit qu'il n'y a pas de problème et s'en va.

Walt marche à côté du docteur Tran et celui-ci défend parfaitement bien Johnny. Il suggère à Walt de prendre Johnny au sérieux et s'en va.

Johnny fait de l'exercice chez lui avec Bruce. Walt, de son côté, appelle les policiers pour qu'ils viennent faire un moule des empreintes de pas sous la fenêtre d'Alyson. Chez Johnny le téléphone sonne. Le shérif lui dit qu'il passe le prendre.

Au commissariat, Walt donne une cigarette à Johnny pour qu'il la touche, ce qu'il fait. John lui explique que le tueur ne veut pas que les gens sachent qu'il fume parce qu'il considère cela comme une faiblesse. Johnny lui dit que sa mère lui a fait des choses terribles. (On parle toujours du meurtrier) Il dit que le meurtrier est impuissant sauf quand il tue et qu'il ne le fait que lorsqu'il pleut dehors pour effacer ses empreintes. Johnny commence alors à parler comme un fou. John lui dit que les victimes ont lutté et recommence à parler comme un cinglé. Walt lui enlève la cigarette et John lui dit qu'il veut seulement l'aider mais Walt veut que Johnny trouve l'adresse et le numéro de téléphone du meurtrier.

Johnny et Walt sortent du bureau et Sarah arrive. Elle se demande pourquoi Johnny est là puis l'invite pour aller dîner mais Johnny refuse.

Johnny, Walt et Sarah se retrouve au restaurant. John lui demande comment ils se sont rencontrés et Walt répond qu'ils se sont rencontrés à l'hôpital puis il y a un long silence. Il parle de hockey et de Foot Ball et de JJ. Deux enfants se bousculent et Johnny a une vision d'un des enfants recevant du café bouillant sur la tête alors il les arrête. Walt reçoit un coup de téléphone d'un policier qu'il lui demande de venir chez Alyson. Johnny et Walt s'en vont.

Chez Alyson, des policiers s'affèrent un peu partout. John et Walt entrent dans la maison et voient Alyson qui semble en pleine forme. Alyson leur explique pourquoi elle n'était pas là et ils partent.

Purdy et un autre homme se chamaillent à propos de Johnny parce qu'il a eu sa photo dans le journal et l'article ne semble pas très bon. L'homme veut que Johnny ne se mêle pas des affaires de l'Alliance mais Purdy défend Johnny.

Johnny ouvre sa porte à Sarah et elle lui dit qu'il va avoir besoin d'amis. Johnny lui demande ce qu'elle veut manger et Sarah lui dit qu'elle s'inquiète pour lui. Ils parlent des visions de Johnny et du passé. Sarah le sert dans ses bras et ils commencent à s'embrasser et je vous laisse imaginer la suite. Johnny se rend finalement compte que ce n'est qu'une vision. Il lui demande de s'en aller mais Sarah refuse. Il lui explique alors que pour elle ça fait 6 ans mais pour lui ça ne fait que quelques semaines. Le téléphone sonne et Sarah s'en va. C'est Bruce qui est à l'appareil et il lui dit qu'il vient le chercher.

Bruce et Johnny se retrouve devant la maison d'Alyson et Bruce lui explique pourquoi la vision ne s'est pas réalisée. En effet, puisque le téléphone sonnait lorsqu'elle arrivait chez elle, elle a courut au lieu de marcher et donc le tueur ne l'a pas attrapé. John dit alors à Bruce que si Alyson n'est pas morte, une autre personne l'a été à sa place. Johnny marche dans la peau du tueur et sens qu'il a besoin de commettre un meurtre. Bruce le suit et ils arrivent finalement devant le cinéma. Il voit une fille dans sa vision et sais que le tueur va la tuer. Dans sa vision, il attrape la fille et l'emmène dans le parcµ. C'est alors qu'il commence à l'étouffer. Mais Johnny est pris dans sa vision et commence à paniquer parce qu'il pense l'avoir tué. Il crie qu'il est désolé et dit à Bruce qu'il sait ce que c'est de tuer.

Johnny et Bruce vont chez Sarah et c'est le petit JJ qui répond. Walt et Sarah arrivent et Johnny lui dit que le tueur à tuer quelqu'un d'autre. Il lui dit également qu'ils ont trouvé la tombe.

Près d'un moulin, les policiers trouvent le corps de la jeune femme. Les médias sont là et maintenant plus personne ne se moque de Johnny car il a eu raison. Johnny est triste de ce qui s'est passé et dit à Bruce qu'elle est morte à cause de lui. Bruce tente de le rassurer. Johnny s'approche de la victime et la touche. Il a alors une vision et découvre qui est le meurtrier.

Johnny et Walt arrivent chez Frank Dodd un policier mais Walt pense que Johnny se trompe de meurtrier mais ils sortent de la voiture et vont sonner. C'est la mère de Frank qui répond et leur dit qu'il est parti pêcher. Walt demande à la mère s'ils peuvent entrer. Johnny s'avance mais la mère l'empêche de passer. John a alors une vision et accuse la mère d'être complice du meurtre des jeunes filles. Walt va fouiller la maison au premier pendant que Johnny reste avec la mère. La mère s'éloigne de Johnny. Pendant ce temps Walt fouille l'étage supérieur et trouve une porte fermée par un cadenas. En bas, Johnny veut rejoindre la mère. En haut, Walt cherche toujours Frank. Il entre dans sa chambre et voit la canne à pêche de Frank près du mur. Johnny entre dans la cuisine où il est attaqué par la mère. Elle tient un couteau et plaque Johnny à terre. Walt arrive au bon moment et tue la mère. Walt dit à Johnny d'aller demander des renforts pendant qu'il descend à la cave. Walt appelle Frank mais celui-ci ne répond pas. Johnny a une vision de Walt mourrant d'un coup de feu tiré par Frank en touchant la radio pour appeler de l'aide mais il voit également son avenir avec Sarah. S'il ne prévient pas Walt, il aura une fille avec Sarah et aura une très belle vie. Il est déchiré entre cette belle vie et la vie du mari de son ex-fiancée. Walt entre dans une pièce où il y a les photos des victimes. Frank surprend Walt et le menace de son arme. Walt tente d'amadouer Frank. Au moment où Frank allait tirer, John abat sa canne sur le fusil et la balle finie dans le planché. Frank pousse Johnny et tente de s'enfuir. Walt lui demande de venir. Ils entendent un coup de feu. Frank vient de se suicider.

Dana veut interroger Walt mais il refuse et lui dit que l'aide de John a été précieuse. Johnny ne dit rien et part.

Bruce is carrying a baseball bat, Johnny using his cane... lightning flashes now and then... they pause once they're inside... whispering --
BRUCE : Anything you want to tell me?
JOHNNY : Like?
BRUCE : Like 'I can see the killer and he's hiding upstairs in the hall closet'...
JOHNNY : I don't have X-ray vision, Bruce.

BRUCE : Well, he's not in the hall closet.

In contrast to Johnny's desperation, Dodd is calm,measured... Johnny, wet and impatient, is sitting at Dodd's desk as the deputy takes the report...
JOHNNY : (controlled)It is my real name. Smith. John Smith.
Dodd stares at him a beat then, unconvinced, types a short
burst into his computer. We see we're in a modest office.Up 'till now, it's been a quiet night. Bruce is sitting by the door, watching Johnny give the report. Two other deputies (including ROSCOE, 30) and an attractive but dressed-down police reporter, DANA BRIGHT, 25, are playing liar's poker in a far corner... her feet are up on the desk, crossed at the ankle as a man's might be... she studies a dollar bill...
DODD : And why do you think something has happened to this woman, Mr... "Smith"?

DODD : And how would you know that, Mr. Smith?
Behind Johnny, we may see Bruce hang his head and rub his temple...
JOHNNY (a beat): I just do.
Bruce just can't stay silent any longer --
BRUCE : He sees things. Okay? Like a psychic but times a hundred. He sees things.
At that, the reporter swings her legs off the desk...
DANA : Scuse me, Roscoe...
BRUCE : He saved a baby from a burning house...
JOHNNY : Bruce...
BRUCE : He found a man's mother that everyone thought was dead.

The rain has ended but the ground is still wet from the night before. Johnny is taking a walk in his neighborhood as Purdy's limo arrives. Purdy gets out of the back...beams at Johnny...
PURDY : Howdy, stranger.
The words don't quite fit the man. Six years ago, Johnny might have smirked and made a sarcastic comment but a lot has happened and Johnny stifles any feelings he might have had toward Purdy and simply smiles (and avoids touching him)...
JOHNNY : Reverend.
PURDY : Can I stretch my legs with you?
JOHNNY : Sure. Got to do ten miles this morning.
PURDY: Ten. Well, I don't know if my legs will stretch quite that far...
As they begin to walk, the long limo inches along behind them... Johnny glances back but chooses not to comment...
JOHNNY : Reverend... we need to talk about something...

university, inspect your mother's legacy. There's still work to be done...
JOHNNY : Me? I don't think I'd fit in, Reverend.
PURDY : Sure you would.
JOHNNY : The truth is... I've never been much of a believer in anything I couldn't see with a microscope.
PURDY : Even now? After what you've been through? (cordial)
Your... resurrection is pretty strong evidence of a greater power
at work from where I sit. There I go again, preaching. Sorry,

in a match cut, his fingers are holding a lit cigarette and it is EXTERIOR - NIGHT... it is raining... CLOSE-UP ON JOHNNY as he takes a puff...
JOHNNY : The cigarettes. Whoever smoked them considers it a weakness. Doesn't want anyone to know.
And as we continue to move, we fuse the two scenes – Walt is in the sheriff's office, Johnny is outside in the rain... he starts to breath harder...

JOHNNY : His mother... did terrible things to him. Painful things. He's impotent. (beat, an insight)Except when he kills. He only kills when it rains. Outside. To wash away any evidence.
Walt reacts, didn't know that. Continuing our move around the INT/EXT fusion...and we may begin to sense a personality change in Johnny... more cocky, a little more wired... he begins to sing softly...
JOHNNY (CONT'D): 'Jimmy crack corn and I don't care... Jimmy crack corn and I don't care...'(interrupting himself)You didn't even find a scrap of tissue under the girls' fingernails, did you?
WALT : No, there was no sign of a struggle at all.
JOHNNY : Oh they struggled. They kicked,they clawed... but their fingers just slipped off the slick vinyl raincoat...
As he takes another puff, we move to reveal a dead woman's body lying at his feet in the rain... and we may realize the cigarette he's smoking is post-coital...

Johnny's eyes change... he looks at Walt and drops the cigarette butt to the tabletop, exhausted.
JOHNNY : I'm just... I'm just trying to help, Sheriff...
WALT : The killer's home address and phone number -- that would help.
