Come and play with us.

Come and play.

- Not gonna get me!

- You wish!

- Jake.

- Mom, you okay?

That was a big one.

Bad dreams?

No.

Come on.

Get breakfast.

This morning's quake is

causing major problems for commuters.

The 5.7-magnitude quake hit

New York early this morning.

Yet another in a series of quakes

that has rattled both coasts.

Tokyo was hit again.

And with the Berlin quake last week...

Reporter 2:
Question is: What is

causing all these earthquakes?

Christ, even ESPN's doing

the quakes now.

But we still don't know

what's causing them.

Hey. My folks sent me over to see...

- if you guys are still alive.

- We're fine, Timmy.

That was pretty intense.

- Yeah.

- You good?

- Yeah.

- We're just running a little late.

- See you later?

- Say hi to your mom for me.

Ma, Laurie says hi.

Don't forget,

you have Dr. Hotchkiss after school.

We're wasting money

on all those shrinks.

He's making progress.

Wait up!

Hey, did you get the books

from my locker?

So when's the apocalypse coming?

Come on, man, just give me my book.

What's wrong,

your meds stop working?

Hey! Hey!

- Give me my book!

- Get off me!

- Get off of me.

- Hey!

Hey. That is enough, chambers.

I need my book.

Hey. You need to go

home and cool off.

You've been, uh, quite busy, Jake.

This big tower in the clouds

you keep dreaming about...

you say these earthquakes we've been

having have something to do with it.

They happen

because the tower is under attack.

You're a smart kid, Jake.

You know when you can't

differentiate...

- between dreams and reality...

- It's not a dream.

Okay? I'm not crazy.

I always see the same thing.

The tower, the man in black,

the creepy guys with the fake skins.

What if the tower were destroyed?

Darkness and fire.

Let's talk about your dad.

Surprise.

When you lost your father,

your world fell apart.

You have these visions

of impending hell on earth...

because that's how you feel inside.

Even words like

"darkness" and "fire"...

Jake, you're describing

the night your father died.

Can't just be about that.

They're just dreams, Jake.

They're not real.

Watch out.

They'll take you.

They steal kids like you.

Cross them over.

Special ones.

The power of your mind,

that's what they want.

Jake. What's up?

Bad day?

Yeah.

Let's go.

- Want to hang out?

- Yeah.

Control, he's unstable.

We need to take the offer.

- It's great treatment for no money.

- It's not about the money.

- I'll wait in your room.

- There's nothing more...

- we can do for him now.

- Jesus, Lon!

Can you at least pretend

like he's your own kid?

I'm sorry, baby, we...

We didn't hear you come in.

What the hell happened in school today?

You promised me

you're gonna stay out of trouble.

Sorry, mom.

Honey, um...

the school's been approached

by a clinic upstate.

They work with kids who...

Who are having a hard time.

There's an opening this weekend.

It's supposed to be a great place.

It's science-based:

Brain scans, sleep patterns.

- I think it could...

- Yeah, okay.

Man, psycho camp.

Sucks, dude.

More shrinks.

Waste of time.

Dude.

What?

Stop staring at your drawings.

You're freaking me out.

You think I'm crazy too, don't you?

Batshit.

Driving us apart.

I'm just asking...

We need help.

We both need help.

We are falling apart.

I love him so much...

and I just can't stand

to see him like this.

He was such a happy kid.

No more dreams.

Just one night of sleep.

You have nothing to be afraid of,

my friend.

Death is not far away.

You want to know

what's on the other side?
