[we see a woman, Sara, doing work around her farm, the next morning she tries to rouse her young son, Cid, and goes down to cook him breakfast when she hears a noise, she goes to shut her screen door but when she looks outside she notices someone standing at the edge of the corn field and comes out with a gun]
Sara: Listen up, fucker! I have shot and buried three vagrants in the past year! So I don’t know care what hobo sob story you got! I get a dozen a week, pal, it cuts no cash with me. But if you show your face here again, I will cut you the fuck in half!
[she turns and walks back into her house, we see Joe hiding in the corn field, he looks tired and sweaty, showing signs of drug withdrawal]
[back in Abe’s office, he interrogates Kid for losing both Joe’s again]
Abe: Well, you found him. Tracking Seth’s bike, that was clever. And you rustled up the posse and went out to get him.
Kid Blue: I could do it again.
Abe: You can fuck up again? Really? I got too much riding, Kid, I can’t afford a fuck up playing cowboy. Put your Gat on the table.
[Kid, who’s got tears in his eyes now, places his Gat on the table, but doesn’t let go of it]
Kid Blue: I wanted you to say I did good. It’s all I wanted. This is all I have.
[Abe slides the Gat away from Kid’s hand]
Kid Blue: Please just give me one more chance. I’ll bring him here alive, and I’ll hold him and you could put a bullet in his brain yourself.
[suddenly Abe takes a hammer and slams it down onto Kid’s hand, who screams in pain and gets thrown out of Abe’s office]
[as Sara gets ready to turn in for the night she notices the light in her barn is on, she grabs her shotgun and goes to turn it off, when she goes to walk back to the house she hears a rustling noise coming from the corn field]
Sara: Hey, who’s there?
[a man comes out and starts walking towards her, Sara point her gun at him]
Sara: Stop right there, I will shoot you.
[we see Joe is still in the corn field, slumped over and looking sweaty, he looks up when he hears Sara’s voice]
Sara: You stop! Stop right there! I’m telling you to stop!
[the man keeps on walking towards Sara]
Sara: You stop!
[Sara shoots warning shot and suddenly trips over a root, Joe runs out of the corn field with his gun ready and gets between the two, the man comes into view and we see he’s a mute vagrant just begging for some food, he runs off, Joe then collapses and starts puking]
[after puking, Sara drags Joe to her front porch and as he starts mumbling she slaps him to get his attention]
Sara: Hey! Look up at the light. Look up at me. How long since you dropped?
[she mimics using the eye dropper drug]
Joe: A day. I can’t feel my legs.
Sara: That’s because you’re going through withdrawal, you fucking junkie.
Joe: You gotta help me. I’m gonna die.
[Sara notices Joe’s Blunderbuss and her eyes go cold realizing what Joe is]
Joe: Thirsty. Water.
[Sara walks back into the house]
[Joe notice a kid walking towards him]
[Sara’s son, Cid, gives Joe some water]
Sara: Cid! Come inside, baby.
[Sara grabs hold of her son and takes him back to his room]
Cid: Who’s that man?
Sara: He’s just vagrant, baby.
Cid: No, he’s not.
Sara: Oh, yeah?
Cid: His shoes are too shiny.
Sara: Well, aren’t you a smart monkey.
Cid: Is he sick?
Cid: Will he get better?
[Sara tucks Cid into his bed]
Sara: Just go to sleep, okay, baby boy?
[she goes to kiss him, but Cid turns away]
Sara: Goodnight, sweetie.
Cid: Goodnight, Sara.
[old Joe is in the sewers of the city, he starts seeing young Joe’s new memories of Sara, as she slapped him in the face earlier, old Joe looks at the picture of his wife in his watch and starts muttering]
Old Joe: The first time I saw her face. The first time I saw her face.
[he sees Sara’s face again]
Old Joe: No. The first time I saw her face.
[he keeps looking at the picture of his wife, trying to recollect when he first met her]
Old Joe: The first time I saw her face. The first time I saw her face. The first time I saw her face…
[then he remember how he met his wife]
[the next morning, Joe wakes up in the barn handcuffed to a cot, he sees a shadow of a child standing in the doorway, but when he looks again he’s gone, back in the house, Cid is in the kitchen when Sara walks in]
Sara: Morning, monkey. Want something to eat?
Cid: The man’s up. Is he staying here now?
[Sara goes out to the barn and sees that Joe has dragged the cot outside the barn and is cleaning his gun]
Sara: Toss it.
Joe: I’m about to finish cleaning it.
[she points her shotgun at him]
Sara: Put it down.
[Joe drops his gun]
Sara: How are you feeling?
Joe: I’d say I’m a thirty percent.
Sara: You take it slow, by the end of the week you’ll be a fifty.
[she tosses the keys to the handcuffs to Joe]
Sara: I took you in so you wouldn’t die. Now you’re not gonna die, so just take the morning to rest, then you need to get off my farm.
Joe: I can’t do that.
Sara: I’m sorry?
Joe: I’m gonna stay here for a little while.
Sara: I’m not cool with that.
Joe: I’m sorry.
Sara: Well, I’m sorry too. You just lost your take the morning to rest privileges, get off my farm.
[Sara raiser her shotgun at Joe again]
Sara: Get off my farm.
Joe: You couldn’t scare a retarded hobo with that thing, literally.
Sara: This is a Remington 870, one blast cuts you the fuck in…
Joe: Fuck in half. Yeah, that’s telling. You’re holding a gun, I say I’m not afraid, so you describe the gun to me. It’s not the gun I’m not afraid of. What are you gonna do? Shoot in the air? Try scare me? Go ahead. You wouldn’t let me die, you’re not gonna kill me.
Sara: Well, so now I saved your life that makes me weak?
Joe: Look, I’m not a threat to you or your boy. I need to be on your property. I’d rather there’s no contact at all, I’m gonna stay in the fields. Just one thing I need you to do, and you’ll never have to deal with me again. Just verify for me this is your house on the map, so I know I’m in the right place.
[he takes the piece of map he’d taken from old Joe and gives it to Sara]
Sara: What’s this?
Joe: It’s a map.
Sara: Yeah, that’s my house. Why is it marked?
Joe: Okay, it doesn’t matter.
[Sara notices the numbers old Joe had written down on the paper and recognizes them]
Joe: Look, I’m gonna be out of the barn in an hour. If you can spare it, I’m gonna take this canteen. Is there somewhere I can fill it up with water?
Sara: This number, how did you get this?
Joe: Does that mean something to you?
[Sara looks at Joe with suspicion]
[suddenly Sara raises her gun at Joe again]
Joe: Hey! Hey! Hey!
[Sara shoots her gun hitting Joe in the chest]
[as young Joe gets shot by Sara, old Joe starts seeing this in his memories, he touches his chest and finds an old scar from where Sara had shot young Joe, back in Sara’s barn, Sara moves towards Joe after shooting him]
Sara: Yeah, you’re right, I’m not a killer. But I’m fine with how a blast of rock salt to your face won’t kill you. Now you’re gonna tell me who you are and what the fuck you’re doing on my farm!
[Joe doesn’t reply so she cocks her gun]
Joe: Okay. Okay. Time travel hasn’t been invented yet, but in thirty years it will have been. It’s gonna be used by these big criminal syndicates.
Sara: You’re a Looper?
[at the same time that Joe is explaining what he does to Sara, we see old Joe tracking down the addresses he had on his map of where he thinks the Rainmaker will be]
Joe: I can’t go back to the city, cause Abe, my boss, his men will be searching for me twenty- four seven until they find me or they find him. All I got is that map, he had three houses marked on it, yours was one of them. I know he’s coming here. So what, you know about Loopers? You know what we do?
Sara: So he’s coming here?
[Joe nods his head]
Sara: To murder my son, cause he thinks he might be this Rainmaker. And once he kills the Rainmaker, what happens?
Joe: I think, he thinks if he killed the Rainmaker then he never would have been sent back, so he’d just vanish, he’d disappear, just like he appeared. He’d be back with his wife.
Sara: Who is he, this guy you let run? Is he just some random guy from the future?
Joe: He’s just…he’s just somebody. You know what the numbers mean?
[Sara takes out the paper with the numbers and shows him what the numbers mean]
Sara: This is Cid’s birthday, and this is the met code of the hospital he was born in.
Joe: How many other kids were born in that hospital on that day with your son? Like two?
Sara: Sounds right.
Joe: Three kids, three houses marked on his map. He knows one of them is the Rainmaker, but he doesn’t know which.
Sara: What’s he gonna do?
[Joe realizes that old Joe is planning to kill the kids]
[we then see old Joe kill the first kid from the address on his map, as he doesn’t vanish he realizes that he just killed an innocent child and has flashback to being with his wife, he then notices the corner of his map which had the third address is missing]
[back in Sara’s barn]
Sara: Can he really do this?
Joe: Thinking about doing what this would fix, what he thinks will fix.
Sara: If he comes here will you stop him? I’m asking, can I trust you?
Joe: I don’t care if you trust me. I don’t care about your son. I lost my life, I kill this man, I get it back.
[Sara helps Joe clean the wounds from the rock salt she’d blasted him with earlier]
Joe: He’ll kill the other two kids and come here last. Put off facing me. And all this Goddamn cane, we’re just blind. He can’t get within fifty yards of this place without hawk spotting him. What makes sense is we burn the fields, level ’em. How much gas you got in that barn?
Sara: No, you can’t burn down my cane fields.
Joe: Stuff’s half dead anyway.
Sara: Yeah, it’s the seed for next year. It’s not gonna happen. Fucking nut.
[Joe looks frustrated]
Sara: Listen, you use what you need and you set up anywhere, but one thing, I don’t want you talking to Cid. I watch my son, you watch the cane, that’s the deal.
Joe: Good by me.
[Joe winces as Sara tries to clean his wounds]
Sara: Alright, hold still. It’s easy for things to get infected on a farm, start falling off. Pussy.
[Joe gives her a look]
Joe: If I’m gonna be out here and you’re in the house, we need a way to communicate.
Sara: Well, there’s a dinner bell on the barn, you can ring that if someone’s coming out here.
Joe: Dinner bell? We need buzzers, walkies or something.
Sara: It’s all we got, but I’ll look.
[as Sara finishes cleaning Joe’s wounds she hears a noise from inside the house]
[she goes inside and sees Cid watching them]
Sara: How’s the math coming?
Cid: I wanna help the man.
Sara: Help him with what?
Cid: I could help him with my toys.
Sara: No. I wanna talk to you. I need you to stay away from that man, okay? You just let him do his thing, but you stick with me, okay?
Cid: Is he not good?
Sara: Well, we’re gonna see what he is. Alright? But I need you to stick with me. Good boy.
[Cid wakes Joe as he sits watch outside the house, he sneaks Joe into the house]
Cid: Tell me if you hear her coming.
[in the kitchen, Cid has pulled apart a collection of his toys and is rewiring them into a makeshift communication device]
Joe: What are we doing here?
[he shows Joe the signal]
Cid: But I need to make it stronger.
Joe: And how do we do that?
Cid: Bigger battery.
Cid: Do you kill people?
Joe: Uh…let’s say I kill people.
Cid: With your gun?
Joe: Uh-huh. What you want a gun like mine?
Joe: What are you gonna do with it? Pole vaulting? It’s bigger than you.
Cid: Stop bad things from happening.
[Joe pick up one of Cid’s toy cars and suddenly it starts beeping loudly, Cid turns it off and looks up to see if Sara was awakened by the noise, but they hear nothing]
Joe: So, uh…how long you and your mom have been out here on the farm?
Cid: She’s not.
Joe: She’s not what?
Cid: Sara doesn’t know, but I remember my real mom. When I was a baby, I couldn’t stop it.
Joe: Couldn’t stop what?
Cid: I couldn’t stop her from getting killed. I saw it, but I couldn’t stop it. I wasn’t strong enough.
Joe: You should uh…you should talk to your mom about this.
Cid: She’s not my mom, she’s a liar.
[old Joe runs through the streets of the city, hunted be Abe’s men, Abe’s Gat Man tells him where he saw old Joe]
Gat Man: Spotted him coming out of a sewer tunnel in the west end. He’s on the run.
[next morning Joe finds Sara trying to ax down the stump of a tree on her land]
Joe: You can’t take that thing out with a plough or something?
Joe: Listen, I found a uh…in the barn, I found some parts and I made a…a thing. Here.
[Joe gives Sara the makeshift communication device that Cid had made the night before]
Joe: So if you see something, push that.
[Sara knows instantly that Cid had made the device]
Joe: Last night, he woke me up. Don’t tell him I told you, he didn’t…
[Sara turns and carries on axing the tree]
Joe: You said you were his mom.
Joe: He told me you’re not.
Sara: He said that?
Joe: Yeah. Um…if he’s not your son, who is he?
Sara: He’s my son. I had Cid when I was 22, but I didn’t wanna give up my life in the city, so I dropped him here, on the farm, with my sister and she saw how I was living, so she took him. And my sister, she raised him. She loved him, he called her mom.
Joe: How did she get killed?
Sara: Jesus Christ!
Joe: He remembers it. You gotta talk to him about it.
Sara: I told you one thing. I told you to stay away from my son.
Joe: He asked about my gun.
Sara: Stay out of it! And stay the fuck away from my son!
[as Sara is teaching Cid math on using a board game]
Cid: How long can you not sleep?
Sara: I don’t know, probably a while. That’s a good question. Where does it go, come on?
[Cid makes his move on the game board]
Sara: Good. 32.
Cid: We should help Joe watch.
Cid: Because he can’t stay awake all the time.
Sara: He isn’t our business, okay?
Cid: He’s keeping us safe.
Sara: Let’s do this now, okay? You have 32 there, I know you know this one.
[Cid makes his move and puts down the number on the board]
Sara: No. 8 times 3 is what?
Sara: 8 times 3 is what?
Sara: I want you to count three eights.
Cid: 8, 16…32.
Sara: Are you telling me you want alone time?
Sara: Then why don’t you put that where it belongs?
[Cid picks up the number and places it in the same place, Sara looks frustrated]
[after Cid disobeys Sara as she tries to teach him maths]
Sara: Alone time!
Cid: He’s protecting us because you can’t do it!
Sara: Okay, I told you to stay away from him, didn’t I!
Cid: I never did anything!
Sara: Do you think I’m stupid?
Sara: I told you already.
Sara: You do what I tell you, Cid!
Cid: You can’t tell me what to do, cause you’re not my mom! You’re not my mom! You’re a liar! You’re gonna get killed cause you won’t stop lying!
[Sara starts look worried as Cid keeps on shouting]
Sara: Cid, calm down.
Cid: Liar! You’re lying to me! I hate you! Liar!
[suddenly Cid throws the maths game board across the room]
Cid: You’re lying to me! I hate you! Liar! I hate you! Liar!
Sara: Calm down.
Cid: You’re lying to me! I hate you!
Sara: Ssh. Calm down.
[as Sara goes to touch Cid, he pushes her aside, Sara looks terrified as Cid continues to scream, she walks out of Cid’s room and goes into her walk-in closet and into a large metal safe, closing herself in, outside, Joe hears Cid screaming]
[later, Sara walks back into Cid’s room and finds him lying in his bed crying, she touches him and he hugs her, Sara takes Cid into her arms and holds him tenderly]
Cid: I’m sorry.
Sara: It’s okay, sweetie.
[old Joe finds his second target in town, an apartment building, he stands outside and watches as he realizes that his target is Suzie’s daughter]
Old Joe: Oh, shit.
[he stands back and watches her through a window]
[Sara is asleep with Cid in her arms when she hears someone knocking at her door, she goes downstairs and sees the communication device beeping, she opens the door where a Gat Man waits]
Jesse: Evening, ma’am.
Sara: Evening. How can I help you?
Jesse: You can start by accepting my apologies uh…re the hour. I hope I didn’t catch you at supper.
Sara: No, that’s fine.
Jesse: I’ve been walking between empty farms all day in the hot sun. Thought I’d just tick this one off, so I don’t have to come back tomorrow.
Sara: What’s this about?
Jesse: You alone here, ma’am?
Sara: My husband should be back from the city anytime now.
Jesse: Happy to hear.
Jesse: Could I trouble you for some water?
Sara: I’ll get you some, you can take the glass with you.
[Sara goes to close the door but Jesse stops it with his hand]
Jesse: Actually, ma’am, my business today, this ticking off the list business, is gonna require me comin’ in. If that’s alright?
Sara: Will you tell me what this is about?
Jesse: I will, yes. Can I come in?
[Sara stares at him]
[she steps aside and lets him in]
[Joe comes in through the kitchen door as Sara and Jesse walk towards the kitchen, Joe hears Jesse ask Sara if she’s seen any vagrants and shows her a photo of Joe]
Jesse: This man here?
Sara: He’s young. Nope.
Jesse: Well, there’s his father too.
[Jesse gives Sara a photo of old Joe]
Jesse: Similar looking build too, late fifties. May or may not be traveling together.
[as Jesse looks round, Joe quickly hides in a another room]
Jesse: Do you recognize them?
[Sara looks at the photo of young and old Joe]
[Sara goes to give the photos back to Jesse]
Jesse: Keep ’em. The kids with your husband?
[Sara realizes Jesse had notices the toys on the kitchen table]
Sara: Yeah, just one.
Jesse: How old?
[Sara gives Jesse some water and watches him drink]
Sara: I’m gonna show you the barn, and then the house, and then you can be on your way.
[she opens the kitchen door]
Jesse: I took the liberty with your barn. Apologies. So, the house.
[Jesse enters Sara’s living room]
Jesse: Ten you said, your boy?
Jesse: And your husband?
Jesse: I just gotta check in with the Home Office.
[as Sara sits on the couch we see that Joe is hiding behind the couch]
Jesse: You said the boy is in the city with his father. When are they getting back?
Sara: Couldn’t tell you.
[from behind the couch Joe looks up and see that Cid is standing on the stairs; Jesse loses signal on his cell]
Jesse: Ah! This Goddamn thing. I can never get a signal this far out of town.
[Cid points to Joe and Joe shakes his head and motions for Cid to go back upstairs]
Jesse: Ah, piece of shit!
[Cid ignores Joe’s instruction and walks down the stairs]
Jesse: Okay, here we go.
Sara: Is this man dangerous?
Jesse: He shoots men down for a living. He’s a stone cold killer. My boss has half the city looking for him. Half the city and me, so. And if you find there’s a hell of a price. Chunk of money like that. You should think on it.
[as Jesse talks, Cid silently walks downstairs and into the kitchen]
Sara: I will.
Jesse: Alright. Show me upstairs.
[suddenly Jesse hears a noise from the kitchen]
Sara: There’s drafts in the house.
[Jesse gets his gun out and goes to the kitchen, Cid quickly walks out of the kitchen and opens the door under the stairs and Joe quickly goes in with him and shuts the door]
[outside the house, we see a trap door open with Joe and Cid inside a tunnel that Cid had led them into from the basement]
Cid: My granddad built this tunnel when the rain got bad. Nanna said he was nuts.
Joe: Thank you, granddad.
Cid: That wasn’t the man.
Joe: No. What’s funny is that I know that guy though, his name is Jesse. I like him, he’s good. He’s gonna go away, once he doesn’t find me. He won’t hurt your mom…Sara.
Cid: Where’s your mom?
Joe: Where’s my mom? She, uh…gave me up, I was younger than you. We were vagrants and, uh…she was alone. For a long time I thought she was stupid for getting on the drugs she was on, but now I see she was so alone, that’s all she had. She sold me to a panhandle gang. I got away and I ran, I ended on this train. I remember I was sittin’ there in an empty cart, I saw myself, over and over again, killing those men that bought me. They got my mom on what she was on…and just finding them and tearing them apart, saving my mom.
Cid: But you didn’t.
Joe: Then men in the city found me, put a gun in my hand, gave me something that was mine. It’s just men trying to figure what they would do to keep what’s theirs, what they got. See what kind of men there is.
Cid: I’m not gonna let Sara get killed.
[Joe sees Jesse living the house, get in car and leave]
Joe: I think we’re clear.
[Joe gets out of the tunnel and gets Cid and he watches as Cid runs into Sara’s arms]
[as Sara lies in bed, thinking about everything that’s happened, she decides to push the button on her communication device, she waits as Joe run into the house and into her room]
[Sara closes her bedroom door]
Joe: What happened?
[Sara walks up to Joe and starts kissing him and they have sex, afterwards, Joe watches Sara as she smokes and uses her TK abilities to levitate her lighter]
Joe: That is pretty good.
Sara: In the city young guys would hit on me by floating fucking quarters, and I wouldn’t tell them I was TK, but I would keep their quarters down. This one guy just busted a blood vessel in his eye trying to get it up.
[they both smile]
Sara: He’s you, your loop. You lied to me. But I know you’re not lying when you say you’re gonna kill this guy, you’re own self. You protected Cid from that Gat Man.
Joe: I’m uh…he…yeah.
Sara: He saved your ass, didn’t he?
Joe: He saved my ass, yeah. He’s uh…he’s a good kid.
Sara: Yeah, he is. You know, when I came back, after my sister died, I remember seeing him for the first time in two years, just sitting on the porch. I drove up, crying, I’d been at this party all night in the city, when I got a call, and so I was wearing this ridiculous party dress. All my ridiculous shit. And I don’t know if he…if he even remembered me, but…but he looked at me.
[Sara starts crying]
Sara: And I abandoned him, I abandoned my baby. I’ve seen so many men in the city, who I’d look in their eyes and they’re just lost. So whether he loves me back or not, as long as I’m there to raise him, he’s gonna be taken care of, he’s gonna be safe. He’s never gonna get lost.
[the next morning, Joe comes downstairs to find Jesse holding Sara at gunpoint]
Jesse: Hello, Joe.
[Joe holds his gun]
Joe: I’ll put this down, you can let her go.
[Joe drops his gun]
Joe: Sara, Jesse here is the best shot with the Gat that I know. So when he lets go, you sit down on the couch and don’t do anything stupid.
[Jesse lets Sara go and she goes and sits on the couch]
Joe: He’s coming here, Jess. My loop is coming here.
Jesse: I gotta take you in, man.
[Jesse points his gun at Joe]
Joe: I got 948 bars of pure silver, I’m gonna close my loop, I get right with Abe. Whatever he gives me back, I’ll split it with you.
Jesse: Was that your plan?
Joe: Okay, take all of it.
Jesse: Are you delusional? You ain’t gettin’ right with anyone. As long as Abe has got one Gat Man standing, he’s gonna be huntin’ you till the dying day. We’re gonna go now. We’re gonna get in my truck, and you’re just gonna…
[suddenly there’s noise on the stairs, Jesse whips his gun up and sees Cid standing on the stairs, this scares Cid who trips on the stairs and starts screaming as he falls]
[at the same time that Cid is falling down the stairs, old Joe breaks into Suzie’s apartment]
Old Joe: I’m sorry.
[he pushes Suzie aside and goes towards her daughters room, at that moment back at Sara’s farm, as Cid is falling down the stairs all the furniture in the house starts to levitate, Joe races to catch Cid but Sara pushes Joe out of the way, as Cid continues to scream, Jesse gets lifted up, confused and horrified as he explodes into a bloody mess, back in Suzie’s apartment old Joe remembers everything and realizes who the Rainmaker is]
Old Joe: The Rainmaker.
[suddenly the room is suddenly lit as Kid Blue flips the switch and shoots old Joe with a taser]
[back on the farm the house explodes with Cid’s screams, throwing Sara and Joe out of the house, Joe and Sara run back into the house to look for Cid]
Sara: Cid! Cid! Oh, my God! Cid! Cid!
[Joe walks out of the house with Jesse’s and his own gun and walks towards the cane field to look for Cid, Sara runs out of the house and sees Joe with the guns]
Joe: It’s him! What is he, some TK freak? You knew.
Sara: What are you doing with those guns?
[Sara goes to grab Joe]
Joe: How did your sister die?
[Joe pushes Sara away making her fall]
Sara: What are you doing with those guns?!
Joe: How did your sister die?! How did she die?! Is that what happened to her?!
Sara: No! No!
Joe: Did he kill her like that?!
Sara: No, listen! He was climbing a bookshelf, okay, and it fell back on him! And he gets scared, it explodes!
Joe: Jesus fucking Christ!
Sara: But one day he’ll learn to control it!
Joe: Yeah, I know he will, and imagine what he’s gonna do!
Sara: If he did good with it though! If he grew up with me raising him! If he grew up good!
Joe: He doesn’t.
[Joe turns and walks into the cane field, looking for Cid]
Sara: You stay away from him! No!
[as Sara runs into the cane field after Joe]
Sara: Cid, stay away from Joe, baby!
[Joe finds Cid crouching and covered in blood in a clearing within the cane field, as Joe walks closer to Cid, he suddenly hugs Joe’s leg, Joe feels sorry for him and pats Cid’s back, at that moment Sara finds them, she runs to Cid and hugs him]
Sara: Come here, baby. It’s okay. It’s okay, baby.
Joe: Well, right now two things have happened. My loop knows Cid’s the kid he’s looking for, and my gang knows I’m here. So that means in fifteen minutes, one or both of them is comin’ down that highway. Pack up the Gat Man’s truck, take everything you can fit and go, drive
North away from the city.
Sara: Thank you.
[as Abe and his men prepare to leave, his buzzer goes off. Abe looks into his security camera and sees Kid Blue holding old Joe with a sack over his head]
Kid Blue: I got him, Abe. I got him!
Abe: Well, shit.
[Kid Blue walks towards Abe office with old Joe, gloating to the rest of the Gat Men]
Kid Blue: That’s right, motherfuckers. I got him. Knew he was sweet on this one particular whore, so I checked her building
Gat Man: We found Joe too though, in a farm on the east side. That’s why all the Gat Men are here, the whole crew’s arming up to make a sweep.
Kid Blue: Joe. Fuck Joe. Save your bullets! I got the loop! Not such a fuck up now, huh?! I’m bringing him up to CA…
[suddenly old Joe kicks Abe’s man in the crotch and slams Kid into the wall, gets hold of Kid’s gun and shoots Kid, he takes his good off, shoots Abe’s man and kills all of Abe’s Gat Men and finally Abe, then Kid Blue wakes up in pain bleeding from his shot wound, he sees everyone is dead, looks at the map where Joe has been located leaves to kill Joe]
[Joe finds old Joe driving up on the highway, old Joe stops the truck, gets out and throws a bar of gold in front of Joe]
Old Joe: Take this truck, and take your gold and go and live your life. Nobody’s coming after you, I fixed it.
Joe: Are you gonna kill the boy? Is that how you fix it?
Old Joe: You’re Goddamn right I’m gonna kill that boy! You just got your life back!
Joe: My life? Your life! Becoming you!
[Joe raises his gun and fires and starts walking towards old Joe]
Old Joe: Stop, dammit! You’ve lost your fucking mind! You let that boy live, he’s gonna take everything you’ve got, and everything I got! You’ve seen what he becomes!
