Just do exactly what I say.

Help me!

Why is this happening again?

Oh, please don't let him

do this!

Don't panic, Amanda.

We have a breech birth here.

It's backward!

We're going to have

to turn it around.

Take a deep breath.

I'm going to need you to push.

Now push!

Holy shit.

What is it?



this is one of God's creatures.

Take solace in that.

That is no creature of God!

Stop it! Give it to me!

Don't let it get away!

Where are you?

No! Not again!

It's a boy!

You can't come back!

I locked the door on you.

Well, I found the key!

Your birth was a curse

on the whole of humanity.

I will not allow it

to happen again.

You brought me back

to give you life...

but now I must take yours.

We'll see, bitch.

We'll just see.

I must be released

from my earthly prison.


Look for me in the tower.

You'll never find her.


Oh, God, I'm glad it's you.

- It was terrible.

- What happened?

I was in the dream...

and I don't know how,

but now he's back.

I thought you were dead.

You're four hours late.

Four hours?

I wish I had a prescription

for whatever it is you're on.


Listen, thanks a lot, Alice,

for nada.

Bombs away!

What'd your dad say about

you and Alice going to Europe?

Nothing, really.

Just screamed a lot...

and tried to convince me

that I'm throwing my life away.

Who's throwing their life away?

Dan, and he's taking Alice

with him.

Pretty good dive, Yvonne.

You've been practicing.

That's right. Two hours a day,

six days a week.

Have another one.

I think you need it.

No. I got a shift

in a couple of hours.

Aren't you going in?

No. My mom's got this asshole

photographer coming over...

and I'm not supposed

to mess up my hair.

Aren't you sick of your mom

trying to run your life?
