  • What do you want, Mother?

  • You didn’t come when I sent for you.

  • I can’t imagine poor William was at all unclear.

  • Doesn’t quite have the brains for

  • delicacy.

  • So if youre gonna kill me, why not just come yourself?

  • Kill you?

  • When you think of the lengths I’ve gone to save you from your own foolishness?

  • No.

  • But I thought we should talk without your little friends listening in.

  • Speaking of which

  • [The Dean unplugs JP]

  • Hm.

  • [She crushes the USB]

  • Now, that was satisfying.

  • That little son of a glitch has been a loose end since he disappeared into that rabbit hole they call a library back in 1874.

  • You didn’t have to do that.

  • Yes, I did.

  • Threats to the sacrifice cannot be tolerated.

  • One day youll understand.

  • Do you think I’m ever gonna understand

  • why you fed the only girl I’ve ever loved to an abomination?

  • I think youre a practical girl and youll see that

  • everything I do I do for the best.

  • That silly little creature couldn’t have loved you.

  • The second she knew what you were, she spilled your secrets like an idiot schoolchild.

  • She was a cockroach. A wretched, crawling thing like this one.

  • And you,

  • my glittering girl,

  • are a diamond.

  • Stone cannot love flesh.

  • See, all I’m hearing are your excuses

  • for why you let a supernatural suckfest turn you into its kitchen staff.

  • And you think youll be the one to change all that?

  • Youll claw the Blade of Hastur from its underwater grave and strike out the light where we worship?

  • [Dips finger into the glass of blood and tastes it]

  • It was a good plan.

  • But you won’t try it.

  • It’s a blade meant to consume anyone who wields it. Why do you think the cult of Hastur buried the wretched thing?

  • [Sigh]

  • Darling,

  • there’s no way for you to fight; nothing to fight with.

  • Sometimes that’s just the way of the world.

  • And we must learn to bear it as best we can.

  • So if it’s all doomed, why even bother coming to tell me?

  • Because I would hate for you to become a threat to the sacrifice.

  • And instead,

  • I thought I’d offer you a deal.

  • If you can keep your little

  • pet here from making more trouble,

  • I’ll let you keep her.

  • Take someone else instead.

  • How could I ever trust you?

  • Why don’t I start us off with a gesture of good faith?

  • William, why don’t you bring in your little friend?

  • [Will and Kirsch enter]

  • Hi, sugar puss.

  • [Later]

  • Will said you needed some help with your big rescue plan.

  • And I was like, the Zetas are in!

  • Y’know, were up to being big damn heroes.

  • Told you Will was a total bro.

  • Isn’t he darling?

  • I do so enjoy chivalry.

  • Hey, Laura, youre acting uh kind of, weird, even for you.

  • Hush, dear.

  • The grownups are talking.

  • I thought your hungry little nightlight wanted virgins.

  • Oh, youve been reading Berkeley’s transcriptions. That man was obsessed.

  • No, we just take girls because it’s traditional.

  • Besides, the world’s just gonna grind them up anyway, so it’s almost a mercy.

  • Uh, what’s she talking about?

  • This one, though, believes some idiot accident.

  • Perhaps depression over his lost sweetie.

  • So, what’s it to be? Shall we take the prom king here and leave you and the little moppet alone?

  • Dude,

  • I don’t get what she’s talking about.

  • Oh, it’s cool, bro. Youre gonna save Laura.

  • Alright. Sorry.

  • Because the other option is I simply waltz this adorable little body right out the door and into the sacrifice.

  • Deal.

  • Excellent.

  • William? [snaps fingers]

  • [Will puts Kirsch in a chokehold]

  • Will, dude! What are you doing?

  • Choking you, bro.

  • Okay.

  • Just choking you, bro.

  • [Kirsch passes out; Will drags him out of the room]

  • Remember,

  • she’s safe so long as you keep her from meddling.

  • If either of you get in the way again, all bets are off.

  • Youve made yourself clear.

  • I should hope so.

  • Now be quick.

  • [Takes off necklace]

  • Catch.

  • [Laura falls onto the bed]

  • Laura! Laura! Hey!

  • [Cough]

  • Carm, what the…?

  • Hey, youre fine.

  • It was

  • the necklace, it was just a trap from my mother. It was poisoned.

  • But

  • it- we got it off in time.

  • Your mom plays dirty.

  • Man, she is gonna be so done when you show up all righteous with that sword.

  • Yeah, I don’t think she’s expecting anything like that.

What do you want, Mother?
