Meredith, I think you know something about what happened to Carys.
I understand that you want to protect your brother.
Dad, I met the English girl.
-Oh, Jesus Christ!
She is Carys, I'm sure of it.
Dad, what's happened?
Well, let's keep this our secret?
You're my mother. And I'm your daughter!
I don't want you.
I've taken Davey somewhere safe.
Things are getting messy.
No, Aron. I've lost everything.
I'm afraid there's bad news.
Nicholas's great-aunt Meredith passed away this evening.
KEYS RATTLE IN DOOR
You want another coffee, Sean?
-We're still checking up on your alibi.
-Looks like we might have a few more questions.
-What do you mean?
You're asking me more questions?! Me?!
Why in God's name aren't you out
looking for the bastard that took my girl, eh?
Nothing he's said's holding up.
What the hell's he doing?
He knows we're watching him.
Funny look on his face, though.
FRYING PAN SIZZLES
What happened to me?
Hey. How are you feeling?
Pretty shitty night all round, I figured you'd want something to eat,
-But what happened?
-How do you mean?
-I woke up in your bed.
Last night you came through.
You said that you had a bad dream.
You seriously don't remember any of this?
I remember finding Rose and...
..I remember getting back here...
..Lloyd told me about Meredith.
Then I went upstairs to my room,
went to sleep,
after that it's just a blank, until I woke up in your bed.
I have something on my neck.
Shampoo maybe? Those things are almost always toxic.
-I can't breathe!
I don't understand what's happening to me.
MATILDA'S DISTORTED VOICE ECHOES
You all right?
Yeah. Bloody thing ate my coin.
I've just been to see Rose, had a word with her doctor.
-She's still unconscious?
The, erm, neurologist is visiting this afternoon,
I'm sure he'll be able to tell us more.
Why would she need that?
They don't know exactly how long Rose was underwater
but extended periods without oxygen can cause brain injuries.
When I was a boy, it was pinball.
I'll show you one day.
How to play.
Here's your dad.
I'll just nip to the loo.
How are you doing?
Went up a level.
In my game.
Is Mum OK?
Is she going to die?
Hey, come here.
You know you're not supposed to take any medicine
unless the doctor tells you to.
Because if you take the wrong medicine or...
..too much, it can make you sick.
Did Mum take the wrong medicine?
She took too much. It was an accident.
She was upset and she did it by accident.
Is Mum upset because of me?
Of course not.
I was mean to her.
I said mean things.
Your mum, she's been sad for a long time.
Long before you were even born.
I've been trying to help her.
But I think I've just made everything worse.
CRASH FROM INSIDE
DISTORTED VOICES WHISPER
-What are you doing?
I was just talking to Lloyd.
Got to make arrangements for Meredith.
Turns out I'm next of kin.
It's kind of sad, huh?
She was going to help me.
-She was going to tell me something.
And then she died.
She wrote me a note when no-one else was there
because she was scared.
No, I talked to the ambulance guy and he said it was a stroke,
nothing else. Just a stroke.
I'm sorry. I'm kind of stressed.
Lloyd's wife, Verity...
..she's a doctor.
He said that she could see you today.
I don't need to see a doctor.
Matilda, you blacked out last night.
And you nearly passed out again just now on the lawn.
I thought you'd be in here.
You lied to me, Tru.
-It's not nice.
I bought us movie tickets.
There was something else I had to do.
The English girl. I wanted to meet her.
You said you didn't believe her.
I just wanted to see her for myself.
I thought it was another guy.
Yeah, well, it wasn't.
You weren't with them, then, last night?
At the Morgans' house?
How do you mean? What happened at the Morgans' house?
I brought your breakfast up.
Please, make yourself at home.
So you've seen that.
That's your car.
Are you going to tell me what the hell you were doing there?
Rose would have died if we hadn't got there when we did.
She wouldn't have done it to herself in the first place
if you two had stayed in bloody London.
At least that's what they'll all be saying.
And what do you think?
I believe her. So if you ask me, she's got every right to be here.
But after that...I will be the only one in town who does.
If only Matilda could remember something.
-Like who took her.
Was it a bloke? Was he big, small, young, old?
-She doesn't remember.
-Well, she'd better try harder!
Cos until she does, she's just an outsider
who's come in here and made a big, bloody mess.
And people around here, they don't like that.
Sir, it's PC Graves here again.
Sorry, sir, to harass you, but I was wondering...
..did you get my report on the Rose Morgan incident?
Yes, I understand but...
..the mood here in town, it's strong against this Gray woman.
I just feel like moving her along would be to her own benefit.
No. No, it's not clear she's broken any law, but still...
Course I'm not suggesting we beat up charges, sir!
I understand. Thanks for your time.
You've rung Aron Morgan, maintenance and construction.
Leave your name and number.
Verity Satlow. Come on through.
You're a psychiatrist.
But I was a GP for eight years before I specialised.
Right. Well, your blood pressure is up, but not alarmingly.
Other than that, everything looks perfectly normal.
I don't feel normal.
You're not taking any prescription drugs?
Any history of fainting spells?
Family history of mental illness?
Does suicide run in families?
Have you had suicidal thoughts?
I just feel like there's something in me.
Like, er, it's always been there.
And I've just been ignoring it but now I can't and I...
..I'm scared of what I'm going to see, but I...
You can't look away.
Everyone responds to trauma in their own way.
And the things you've been through, well,
it would be strange if they weren't having an impact.
I'll give you a referral to a dermatologist
for that rash around your neck.
And this might also be useful.
It's a mild sedative.
Not a long-term fix, but it'll help with the anxiety.
Sorry, what if my problem's not just anxiety?
Well, we shall keep talking.
I'm always here.
Are you completely shameless, woman?
I come down here looking for her husband, but who do I find instead?
I just wanted to see how she's doing.
Not so well, thanks to you and your mate.
-Constable, we have an incident.
Valley Hospital casualty department.
Staff have requested backup. Over.
-I'm right here. Will attend. Over.
You stay away from Rose Morgan.
That really is your last warning.
I need something for my back.
Whoa! Laura, what's the trouble now?
I'm in pain, that's what!
We've been asking her to leave and she...
Listen, do you know what I've been through with my back?
Do you know? I've got rights, you know.
-I've got a right to treatment.
-Let's talk about this outside.
Oh, right, what, you think I'm just going to disappear, do you?
Well, I'm not. I'm not.
I'm here. Here I am.
Here I am!
Laura, let's calm it down, eh?
Here I am! Here I am!
Laura, let's calm it down.
Here I am. I'm here.
-Here I am.
We can talk about all of that when you've stepped outside.
Here I am.
Hey, excuse me.
I need to talk to you.
What, you police, are you?
No, no, no. You said something back there
and I think that I need to talk to you.
It's about Carys Howell.
My mum, she was right into it.
You know, reading the papers and...
..and watching the news and that.
Yeah, she was at the same school as Sean Howell, she said.
What did you think about it?
Well, it was like a scary story, wasn't it?
Like a movie.
I didn't... I didn't really feel it,
you know, that she was a real girl, she was just a picture in the paper.
Till I started...
..hearing her voice.
See, I...I call her...
But she told me about Carys, that she was...
..that she was still alive.
That she was...
..nearby and that...
..that...that she was afraid.
How did Bessie know that?
She never said, but...
See, I...I saw this show on the telly
about psychics and spirit guides.
I figure maybe...
..maybe that's what Bessie was.
Did you tell anyone what Bessie told you?
Well, yeah, yeah, but, see, back then, I wasn't, you know,
settled in my moods and whatnot.
I was a bit manic and, in the end,
they sent me up to Glyncollen House
and the doctors put me on the meds and a lot of other stuff.
You know, it took a while, but...
..in the end, they...they shut her up.
Do you remember, Laura, what exactly the voice told you?
See, I don't just remember, I...
..I...I got it all down.
..Bessie sort of described stuff.
Oh, and then you would draw what she would describe?
That's it. So if I asked her who took Carys,
she wouldn't give me a name, she'd just describe how they looked.
That's it there.
-Or if I asked her, where is Carys...?
-Can you show me that one?
That's what the voice said.
"She is trapped in a field of yellow flowers."
That's mad, innit?
You see, that's why they sent me up to Glyncollen.
What are these?
All right, so...so I asked her, what's going to happen to Carys?
And that's what Bessie said.
That's bonkers, innit?
Sylvia said that John Dee was an alchemist
but these books say that he was a scryer.
Do you know what that means?
Fortune-teller? Gazing into crystal balls?
Right, but Dee gazed into a mirror, a black mirror.
Just like the one Laura drew,
which is exactly like the one that we found in the basement.
And he wasn't just telling fortunes, he thought he was talking to angels.
So you think Uncle Ewan is doing the same thing?
Chatting to angels?
Well, look at all the stuff that we found in the house.
The music for ceremonial use.
-Black mirror. The Monas symbol.
-OK, but even if that was true,
how is that in any way connected to Carys?
Dee couldn't hear the angels himself.
You can only hear their voices if you're pure of heart.
Like a small child.
John Dee used his four-year-old son and got him to listen.
Ewan didn't have any children.
So who do you think he might have used?
-What about Rose?
-Any news on her?
Nice subject change.
Sorry, it's just...
You're so focused on this, but I can't stop seeing her in that bath.
You think I can?
Hal, I feel like something bad is going to happen.
Like it's coming.
Don't you feel it?
..thought you might want some help,
So you just need to sign here.
-So, does this mean that...
Well, as executor, I can now make payments to you and, as requested,
I have withdrawn all the cash from Ewan's savings account.
Well, the estate had been running at a loss for quite some time.
In fact, Ewan had a considerable overdraft on his current account.
OK, so we sell the car and we sell the house.
Well, if...if that's what you want.
Yeah, I do.
I need to get home immediately and I'm going to need more money.
You will be staying for Meredith's funeral, I trust?
People would expect it.
Do you think...that they'll be doing an autopsy...
-Why would they?
No, they wouldn't.
Of course not.
if we could keep this business about selling the house between us,
you know, discreet, like...
-As your solicitor, that's my duty.
We used to picnic with the Howells every Sunday...
..before Mum got sick.
-That's your mum?
And that's yours.
I wanted hair just like hers, it annoyed the hell out of my mum.
I don't remember it.
None of it.
This was the Christmas just before it happened.
Last one we ever had together.
Your folks didn't have any family round here, so they'd come to us.
You were happy.
Excuse me a sec.
Well, there must be something you can do.
DNA test. Easy enough if you can get the police onside.
There was, like, an ex-policeman who gave me his card, he wanted to help.
So, why don't you call him?
Because he seemed kind of dodgy.
And he's retired now, so...
Kendrick took early retirement to look after his son.
"Dodgy", it's not a word I'd use for that man.
Do you really think that he'd help me?
If you can get some evidence that you're Carys,
I'm sure he'd do plenty.
I've got a shift so I'd better get going.
You should have this.
Are you sure?
..so you should keep it.
-You want more?
-Mum always says two scoops is enough.
She's right. But just for today, it won't hurt, will it?
There we are, then.
Another bowl of ice cream, Harry.
And another one of these, please, sir.
You've already got a full one.
-You're not driving, are you?
-Well, of course I'm driving.
I'm not going to carry the boy home, am I?
How about I call Stephen? He can give you a lift.
You're not trying to embarrass me in front of my son, are you?
-I'm trying to help.
-Dad, I don't want any more ice cream.
Yeah. You're right.
-Best we get off, then.
Come on, Davey, let's go now.
I'm starting my shift in a minute, so...
Thanks for helping... with the photos and...
I'm not just doing it for her, you know.
Are you taking the piss?
I can't believe you!
Are you following me? Is he following me?
No, he's staying here.
What is it? You and your mate, you still haven't had enough?
I'm so, so sorry about what happened with Rose...
If you're so sorry, why don't you just go and leave us alone?
-Matilda believes she's Rose's daughter.
-Rose says she isn't.
Are you saying she wouldn't recognise her own daughter?
-Are you stupid?
-No, I'm not.
-Are you saying that Rose is stupid?
No, maybe she did recognise her, but was too scared to say anything.
Scared of what?
-No, I didn't mean... I wasn't saying...
-No, I didn't mean that.
-You think she's scared of me?
-No, I'll show you scary.
-Let's just go inside.
Oh, Aron, leave off, mate, he's not worth it!
-Hey, hey, hey, calm down.
-Want some? Come on!
-You calm down!
-Aron, no! No!
How about a bit of that?
Leave him alone.
-Leave him alone!
-Dad! Dad! Please stop!
Dad, please! I want to see Mum! Can we see Mum now?
OK. Come on, let's go see Mum.
Calling the police, Aron Morgan!
Hey, can you get up?
That's it. Come on. Up you get.
I didn't know if it was you in there.
Who else would it have been?
Look, I'm going to be going home.
To Australia. Maybe...
..like tomorrow if I can get a flight.
So you're going to need me out of here, then?
No. I was more thinking maybe...
..maybe you could come with me?
Sure, you could stay with me.
Wait, I... Erm...
You've been really generous but I think that
I may have given you the wrong idea about us.
No, no, no, no, no, no, I mean,
you don't have to stay with me if you don't want to.
That's fine. I was just meaning you should go to Sydney.
You know, you should take a break.
And then when you're chilled out, you should go to New York,
cos you've got that job offer...
Nick, wait, wait. I can't.
I've got things here that I need to do.
Yeah. Yeah, of course, right. Sure.
Is there something wrong?
I've got to get going.
some of the people in town are going to be chasing me,
trying to get some money and stuff, so...
..maybe keep it to yourself about me leaving.
-If you're OK with that.
-Yeah, I suppose so.
We should have put ice on this straightaway.
-I did suggest that.
-Are you always such a smart arse?
Yeah, I'm told I usually am.
You know, this would be a lot easier if you just took your trousers off.
It's fine. I should probably start packing anyway.
Well, you don't have to leave.
My dad will pull his head in now, since you got belted.
Er, I didn't just get belted, I was nearly killed!
As much as I enjoy your cooked breakfasts,
I'm not sure they're quite worth it.
Well, you'll struggle to find anywhere else to stay now.
Touristy sort of area, how hard can it be?
My room's round the side.
Private entrance. You could always...
..till you find somewhere.
I'd like that.
Aron, we need to have a word.
It'll have to be down at the station, I'm afraid.
We've had an official complaint,
about what happened at the pub.
What's going to happen with Davey?
Stephen Kendrick's his godfather, right?
How would you feel if I gave him a call,
got him to come down, pick David up?
I'll stay with him till Stephen arrives.
-We're parked out back, Aron.
-Yes, thank you.

It's not safe here. Come on! Now!
DISTORTED VOICES INTENSIFY
We need to have a chat.
I already told it all to your mate out there.
No, it's not about that business at the Arms.
I'm trying to finalise the report on Ewan Dean's death.
Thought you could help me pin down Ed Fenton's movements that night.
-What would I know about it?
-I don't know.
You might have seen him. Might have talked to him on the phone.
Yeah, might have.
He does some work for me from time to time.
What if I told you he rang you three times...
..after he found Ewan's body?
-What about it?
-Are you saying you don't recall those conversations?
Even though Ed had just found a body, didn't mention it?
Well, I'm guessing I didn't get the calls.
You know, half this county's got no phone coverage.
One of those calls lasted over three minutes.
..Eddie is given to leaving long messages.
THEY CHUCKLE MIRTHLESSLY
Can I listen to them?
I would have deleted them, wouldn't I?
When he starts banging on like that, who can be bothered?
Don't make this worse for yourself, Aron.
My wife is in hospital.
And, thanks to you, my son has got no bloody parents.
Doesn't get any worse than that.
That's all I've got, lots of lamb.
-I thought maybe you don't like it,
-but I've got nothing else, so...
-I love lamb.
The woman who raised me, Janice,
she used to make lamb stew every Monday night.
So, Janice was... She's the one that took you?
I suppose she must have done, but I don't really know.
Did she hurt you?
I don't remember.
I don't know how I got here, either.
I was in the basement and suddenly I was in the forest.
You warned me about the thin ones.
What are they?
And that place, the cave?
Someone brings them here.
Tears them out of their place and brings them here.
Makes them do things.
John Dee thought they were angels.
Yeah, when they come here, they're angry.
They can't last, see, in our world.
It's like they've got no bodies,
so they can't last, but they can't go home, neither.
So they head to Blaidd Carreg. It draws them.
That's why you were heading there.
One of them was riding you.
-They can get hold of you for a time.
Push you along one way or another.
Make you do things.
-..I blacked out.
-Sometimes you remember, sometimes you don't.
Sometimes they'll tell you things, too.
That's how I knew you were back.
So this has happened to you, too?
Janice had the marks...
..on her neck...
..and she killed herself.
Could they do that?
..ride her, force her to kill herself?
..these things, then, they're killers.
I told you, someone brings them here.
Uses them. Forces them.
Way back after you was taken...
..the police accused me.
And that's when I first saw them.
Always in mirrors.
They was trying to help me.
Telling me a message.
But I didn't know, didn't know how to listen.
That's how I feel, too. Like they're trying to communicate.
Well, it's you they talk about.
Whole thing, all about you.
If they are trying to tell me something,
I need to know what it is.
..if I want to hear their message...
Oh, you need to open yourself to it.
-You can show me how?
-Well, it's not safe.
I don't care.
You have to show me.
I said I'll get the cash,
it's just going to take a bit longer, OK?
No, I know what I said, it's just it didn't work out like that!
Look, Jackie, I'm going to be rocking up at the airport
with, like, ten bucks in my pocket.
I'm asking you, please, could you come and pick me up?
OK. Thank you.
Yeah, no, no. I'll have to explain when I see you.
Love to Arlo. I'll see you soon.
HE BREATHES SHAKILY
How did you get in here?
Dear, oh, dear, Nick.
That's not what I call a polite greeting.
I think we need to have another little talk.
Mate, my wife could be dying.
Could I have a bit of privacy, please?
Aron? Where are you?
I'm in the bloody nick.
I told you Graves was on to this.
Listen, listen. Not sure when I'm going to be out,
so you're going to have to manage things until I'm back.
No. No, no, I can't.
We promised them it's going to go ahead, so it's going ahead, OK?
-No, I can't.
-You can. You will.
Because if you don't,
I'll make sure they know that you screwed them.
Do you understand?
Well, it looks quiet.
We want them to come.
I can feel them.
-Don't do it, love.
They're focused on me.
And I need to know why.
HE BREATHES HEAVILY
Sit in there.
You'll be able to see it here.
If one of them rests on you, don't fight.
Otherwise, you'll never hear them clear.
And keep watching the mirror, no matter what.
I'll be right here.
-What if I want it to stop?
-It'll stop when it's ready.
