Will you tell me something?

We are on the beach.

Walking on the beach.

And the clouds are rolling in so

fast, we can see them coming.

The ocean is rolling

in the wind so fast,

and the wind, we

can see it coming.

And then the rain begins.

Big drops, like acorns

hitting the sand.

And it starts raining hard.

But in the distance,

we see buildings.

When it's dark

and when it's light,

high walls...

Very, very high walls.

We walk around them

looking for a door.

And you find one.

I find the door.

And inside,

it is warm,

and bright,

and there are others.

Then what happens?

They give us things

to eat and drink.

And when we've eaten so

much we can't eat any more,

we climb up.

Up the stairs, into rooms.

Each our own room,

each our own bed.


There's clean blankets

and clean sheets.


And the rain pounds

against the windows,

but the glass is

sealed and strong.

Nothing comes through

but the sound.

No wind, no cold...

Just the sound.

Where is it?

We're on the way.

We're going back.



Hey, hey! What you doing?

I'm not gonna hunt it, I'm

gonna follow it to water.

- We have to keep moving.

- No, stay here.




Hey. Hey...

Come on. Come on.

It's okay.

It's all right.

It's all right.

What is that?

It's a bandage.

Is anyone here?


No, I've... I've

searched everywhere.

We're alone.


It's safe.

There's anything we

could ever want here.

Food, water...


What if this is home?

It's not.

The two towers.

Where is the ocean?

Where are people?

There are beds.

There is sheets.

I have no memory of this place.

This is the only thing

we have come across

in years of walking.

There is something wrong here.

The longer we stay here, the

longer till we get there.

We have water now.

We could pack it,

get to the other side of the

forest into the Silver Ridge.

I made it up.

I told you I knew where we came from

and where we were going, but...

it wasn't real.

What are you talking about?

It was easier to keep going

if we had somewhere to go.

That's all it ever was.

What about the map?

Do you really know where we are?

Leave me alone.

I said, leave me alone.

The flame...

Illyrio and Selena.

Samuel's purse...

The two towers.

What do you see?


Over here?


And Selena.

Uh-huh. And there?

The two towers.

Over here?

Samuel's purse.

Do you know how much of

my life you've wasted?

I'll never get that time back.

Now we have to start over.

From nothing.

With less time left.

While we could have been

figuring this out together

all along.

We'll figure it out.




You look stupid.

It's a fork.

A what?

A fork. This thing.

A fort?


Fork. It's a fork.

You look stupid.


- What?

- Nothing.

Do tell me.

This is...


Different how?

I don't know. It's...

It's not different.

It's different.

Different how?

I don't know. It's

not different.

It's different.

Different how?

I don't know.

You're so skinny.




Are you okay?

Can you hear me?




Guess what I found.



You see...

What did you do?


I turned the lights on.

You do that to me again

and I'll kill you.

Turn them off!


I found some new

clothes for you.

What's your name?

Is this yours?

We are on the beach.

Walking on the beach.

The clouds rolled in from the ocean

so fast you could see them coming.

The ocean rolled in

the wind so fast,

and the wind, you

could see it coming.

And then the rain began.

Big drops, hitting the

sand like acorns.
