ZOE VALENTINE | Season 1 | Ep. 1: “Disappearing Act”


The best magic tricks are the ones that make you question reality. But the key to selling a magic trick isn’t skill, its showmanship It’s like Houdini said what the I see and the ears hear the mind believes Let me tell you what I believe I believe I wasn’t born special like my sister charming social and dating the football star. I was never like her. I didn’t always get things, right Zoe, can you come join us? Half the tricks I know are pretty boring. Easy, sleight of hand stuff So, yeah, I can make a coin disappear behind someone’s ear But that’s nothing compared to my sister She pulled off the greatest disappearing act of them all She died Nobody ever knows Nobody ever sees praying to the Lord Praying for my son Now please, don’t go Oh, no, I think of you whenever I’m alone Now please, don’t go Oh no, I think of you whenever I’m alone So please don’t go That’s my best friend Brody. When we were 10, I forced him to start doing magic with me. He agreed, under one condition, that we share it with no one. So in return, I promised we’d make no new friends Hello to you too, Zoey. Hi Brody. How was your weekend? I practice that one trick, but I’m still messing up the end Butterfingers. You’re riffling too fast. We’ve discussed this. Well hey there Valentine. I’m so sorry for your loss Joey She’s sorry a month later? Her name is Zoey Oh, I got it. My real name is Sarah, but my friends call me Britney go by whatever name you want girl Uh no, my name’s actually Zoe. As you can probably tell, not making friends was never a problem for us Just being popular make you stupider? Brody, it’s fine. They’ve literally spent the night at your house. I know but they’re not my friends They were my sister’s friends And that’s Isaac Jones. My sister’s ex-boyfriend or I guess widower Even when Cleo was alive, he never noticed me He still doesn’t Earth to Zoe You want to practice tonight or not? Yeah, of course. Sorry x squared minus four and who wants to- Will someone other than Miss Bett care to solve an equation today Yes, Cleo, come on up. I mean Zoe, come on up Zoe Maybe she should go back to her grade x times x squared minus four. Very good Good work Zoe. Don’t forget your homework tonight on solving proofs Hey Me?

I’m cool. Cool like you’re coming? Or cool like you’re not interested Cool like, thank you for noticing that I exist, but I have plans This photo was taken the day before my sister’s first diagnosis Dad took us out for ice cream while mom stayed home with Cleo. She was sick in bed We brought her home a scoop of mint chip. Her favorite, but she couldn’t even eat it Mom? Who’s that Your Aunt Judy Zoe, please. I’ve told you countless times to just put your stuff away. It’s not that hard to put something back where it belongs I’m just tired Then go to your room and take a nap Why can’t I just take a nap here? Just do what you want, you always do anyway Sometimes, I think my mom wished it was me who disappeared Casper, maybe your dad can take you to the Battling Cages this weekend. Yeah, maybe You used to go every weekend How come I’m never invited? The last time I threw a baseball at you, you dove into the hot dogs I was four.

Didn’t know you party like your sister. You don’t know anything about me You wish I did, Tim booth Isaac Is it just me or does this pretty suck? I feel like we’re missing something. Um Cuba Oh, Cleo That’s such a downer She would want us to have fun. I just like don’t really like being sad. I want to kiss Boots tonight Ew, Boots? He’s so gross, girl. I have some standards. He’s cute. He’s a jerk, a cute jerk. Look working with Robin Robin. She taught me that this tough-guy exterior. They’re typically like sweet shy songwriters. Well, not really good, let’s go back Oh Joey What are you doing here? I have to take this There’s nothing in the box Hey Mom, or Dad or Brodey. If it’s not one of you three then you have the wrong number Leave a message after the beep Hey Zoe, where are you? You’re not answering any of your texts, you didn’t get kidnapped right? I don’t wanna have to call your mom (rock music playing) All right, y’all. I think it’s time for some spin-the-bottle But for any of our newbies, guess we land on no cold feet. My sister was into this game Yep, and if you’re gonna be at this party, you’re gonna play too Look, don’t worry. This is like your first kiss and everything All right Boots go first Why me? Because it’s your house and you’ve already made out with every girl at this party So just spin it You should kiss more often Alison. I’ll shut you up Ew gross Actually, it doesn’t My turn Just spin it again Al. Nah. Other rules no redos You’re embarrassing me Just kiss her. It’s not like you haven’t before alright Jeez Allison Return won’t be back Straight out of your latest wet dream Milo. We just miss Bennet. Don’t be a jerk Zoey When Cleo came back after the surgery, my mom told me everything was gonna be okay. That I didn’t need to worry After she got better, Cleo was more popular than ever Everyone wanted to know the girl who had cancer I bet she would have been prom queen, but she only made it to homecoming A disappearing act has two parts Suddenly disappears and then it comes back If Cleo ever came back, I guess I’d asked for who she really was How she made being in high school look so easy all the time How she was such- an ace at everything And why she pushed me away
