In the bleak mid-winter

Frosty wind made moan

Earth stood hard as iron

Water like a stone


I don't know.

Let me see it darling.

Snow on snow

Do you like it?

I love it.

What am I looking at here?

That's Mommy, that's Daddy,

that's me, and that's...

Santa Claus, I know

him when I see him.

But where's your sister?

Are you angry with her?


There was no

more room on the paper.

In the bleak mid-winter


Angel, tell Grandma the truth.

She makes Daddy angry,

she makes Mommy sad.

So sad that she cries.

And you, does she make you sad?


What are you reading?

Oh this is an old story.

Older than you?

Yes, even older than me.

What kind of story is it?

It's a Christmas story.

Can you read it to me?

Oh I don't know, it's late.

And this one used to

give me nightmares.

That looks like Santa.

It is, or Saint Nicholas

as he used to be called.

So how's this a scary story?

In the bleak mid-winter


Who's that?

Who's that?

That's Krampus.

You've never heard of Krampus?

Well Krampus is old, very old.

Old as time itself.

And just as Santa rewards

good little girls and boys,

Krampus punishes the bad ones.

That's not a true story.

Don't be so sure child.

As with many ancient stories,

the Krampus has passed from

legend into superstition.

But old and forgotten

things have a way of

ever so slowly creeping

back into our world.

Snow had fallen, snow on snow

Snow on snow

In the bleak mid-winter



I got you!


Yes Zoe, you're it!

Zoe's it, I got her!

What are you doing, Zoe?


Don't touch it!


You're weird, stay

away from me, Zoe.

Yes Tristan, it was me.

It was me all along.

Strong for you,

my one true love.

Remember, with Christmas

around the corner.

It's extra important to

listen to your parents.

So you don't

end up on the naughty list.


Turn it back!

What, you didn't hear me?

My love for you is

strong like a tiger.

Then kiss me, Tigress.

My love for you

flows like a river.

Like the mighty Amazon.

Like the ancient Nile of Egypt.

Laundry needs folding,

Now, move it!

Wow, what are you doing?

I'm gonna have my way with you.

That's rather fast.


What the hell?

Bed, now.

Ow, you're hurting me.

Shut up.


Who's there?

Holy sh*t!


Dispatch, we have multiple DBs,

requesting back-up,

detectives and crime scene.

Room clear.

Room clear.

Fremont, we got a locked door.

Here you go, sweetheart.

We've got a foster child,

I'm not sure if she saw

or heard anything, though.

So far she's not talking.

Let a couple of

unis take her over

to the children's warden.

Mercy Immanuel Hospital.

Stewart's on her way there now.

Hope she can get

something out of her.



I need to call you back, bye.

How can I help you?

Dr. Rachel Stewart,

I called from the road,

I'm here for the Zoe

Weaver interview.


Sign here.

Dr. Stewart.

Hey Miles.

James, this is Dr. Stewart.

She helps us out,

from time to time.

I try to anyway.

My partner Detective Cegan.


Call me Rachel.

Dr. Stewart, Det. O'Connor?

Yes, that's us.

Tom Jennings,

Head of Pediatrics.

If you'd like to

follow me, please.

So is she talking yet?

It took us the

better part of an hour

to get her to tell us her name.


Responsive, just


That's her.

Sitting by herself over there.

Let's go say hello.

It's your case detective, but,

I think we might have more luck

if I go talk to her

by myself first.

Go ahead, it's your show, doc.

Zoe, this is Dr. Stewart.
