Mutant X s03e17 Episode Script

She's Come Undone

LEX! I HEARD SHOUTING.
ARE YOU OKAY? YEAH.
SORRY.
I JUST HAD A BRUTAL NIGHTMARE.
OH, I COULD USE SOME ASPIRIN TOO.
I THINK ONE OF US NEEDS TO LAY OFF THE TEQUILA.
LEXA WHAT? DON'T MOVE.
OH, MY GOD.
WHAT HAPPENED? WHERE ARE YOU HURT? I'M I'M FINE.
IT'S NOT MY BLOOD.
SCIENTIST ADAM KANE WAS A PIONEER OF GENETIC RESEARCH, MANIPULATING DNA TO SAVE HUMAN LIVES.
BUT IN MANY THEIR GENES UNEXPECTEDLY MUTATED AND THEY DEVELOPED SUPERHUMAN ABILITIES.
TOGETHER, FOUR OF THE MOST POWERFUL FIGHT TO PROTECT A WORLD THAT DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THEY EXIST.
THEY ARE MUTANT X.
IS THIS REALLY NECESSARY? WELL, LET'S SEE.
YOU CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST THREE HOURS.
YOU WOKE UP COVERED WITH BLOOD.
SO, YEAH I KINDA SAY IT IS.
RELAX.
I'M GOING TO DO A BIOSCAN, JUST TO RULE OUT ANYTHING INTERNAL, OKAY? I THINK YOU JUST LIKE PLAYING DOCTOR.
YEAH, YOU WISH.
LOOK, WHATEVER IT IS THAT'S GOING ON HERE, WE'RE GOING TO FIGURE IT OUT.
ANYTHING YET? YEAH, YOUR SYNAPSES ARE FIRING AT AN ODD RATE.
IT COULD BE WHAT'S CAUSING THE HEADACHE.
WHAT? YOUR IMPLANT.
YOU NEVER DID SAY WHAT ECKHART USED IT FOR.
WELL, TRUST ME, IT'S A NON-ISSUE.
IT WAS JUST A DATA JACK.
THE DOMINION DEACTIVATED IT YEARS AGO.
YOU KNOW, MAYBE THIS WAS ALL A BAD DREAM, YOU KNOW? AND A NOSEBLEED? DOUBT IT.
I CHECKED OUT THE HELIX.
LOOKS LIKE YOU TOOK HER OUT SOLO A FEW HOURS AGO.
THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.
WHERE DID I GO? I CAN RECONSTRUCT THE FLIGHT PATH.
YEAH, BUT YOU CAN'T GO BACK THERE, LEXA.
NOT IF THERE'S ANY CHANCE YOUR NIGHTMARE WAS REAL SHAL AND I WILL HANDLE THE RECON.
YEAH, NOW WHO'S DREAMING? SHAL ARE YOU, UH, BUYING THIS WHOLE AMNESIA CRAP? THINK SHE'S LYING? WHO? COMPLEXA? I MEAN, COME ON, WHENEVER HAS SHE EVER TOLD US THE WHOLE STORY? I'M JUST SAYING, YOU KNOW, IF IT WAS ME AND I WOKE UP COVERED IN SOMEBODY ELSE'S BLOOD, I'M SURE I'D REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED.
WELL, MAYBE SHE DOESN'T WANT TO REMEMBER.
YEAH, MAYBE SHE'S JUST TRYING TO HIDE SOMETHING ELSE.
WELL, IF YOU WERE GOING FOR SUBTLE, YOU MISSED.
LOOKS LIKE YOU WERE TRYING TO SEND SOMEONE A MESSAGE, LEX.
YEAH, JUST WISH WE KNEW WHO.
WELL, AT LEAST SHE CUT OFF COMMUNICATIONS.
SHOULD BUY US SOME TIME.
WHAT IS IT, LEX? THERE'S MORE.
THE GOOD NEWS IS LEXA DOESN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANY WITNESSES.
THE BAD NEWS IS THEY'RE ALL DEAD.
SO FAR I COUNT FIVE.
MAKE THAT SIX.
TRAIL ENDS HERE.
AND YOU'RE TRYING TO TELL ME YOU DON'T REMEMBER DOING SOMETHING LIKE THAT? I REMEMBER KILLING HIM IN MY DREAM.
HE BEGGED, BUT IT DIDN'T DO MUCH GOOD.
HEY, JESS? SEE WHAT YOU CAN GET ME ON DR.
REMY ARNOT IN THE DATABASE.
JESS? YEAH.
UH DR.
REMY ARNOT.
OH, ONE TIME HEAD RESEARCHER AT GENOMEX.
LAST WORKED IN SOMETHING CALLED PROJECT NINE.
WHICH HE CO-CREATED WITH THREE OTHER DOCTORS DOCTOR SAMUEL HOWELL, BEATRICE LANG AND JOHN GONSALVES.
OKAY, WHAT'S PROJECT NINE? I'M WORKING ON THAT.
JUST GIVE ME A MINUTE.
GUYS WE HAVE TO GET OUT OF HERE FAST.
LEX, WHAT'S GOING ON? I THOUGHT YOU SAID YOU DIDN'T KNOW HIM.
YEAH, BUT I KNOW WHO HE WORKS FOR.
COVER ME.
PRETTY WELL-ARMED FOR ALARM TECHS.
WANT TO TELL ME WHAT'S GOING ON? THEY'RE JUST RECON.
THEIR BACKUP WILL BE HERE IN A FEW MINUTES.
ALL RIGHT, ENOUGH WITH THE CRYPTIC, LEX.
WHAT'S GOING ON? HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS? BECAUSE IT'S OUR PROTOCOL.
THIS IS A DOMINION FACILITY.
ARNOT WAS A DOMINION DOCTOR.
I JUST ATTACKED MY OWN PEOPLE AND I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHY.
JESS, YOU GETTING THIS, MAN? YEAH, EVERY WORD OF IT.
LISTEN, WE GOT OTHER PROBLEMS.
BRING LEXA STRAIGHT IN.
DON'T LET HER STOP FOR ANYTHING, AND DO NOT LET DOWN YOUR GUARD.
LEXA.
YOU LIED TO ME.
YOU TOLD ME THIS THING WAS NEUTRALIZED.
SOMEBODY'S ACTIVATING IT AGAIN.
THAT ISN'T POSSIBLE.
REALLY? WHY DON'T YOU TELL IT TO THE FIVE MEN I JUST BUTCHERED AT MAXXLON.
INCLUDING DR.
ARNOT.
YOU NEED TO COME IN.
NO.
I CAN CONTAIN THIS FOR NOW.
BUT ONCE THE BOARD LEARNS SOMEONE'S USING YOU AGAINST US DON'T GO IN.
AM I DREAMING? I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME TO TELL YOU THAT I'M STILL ALIVE.
BUT UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, I COULDN'T WAIT ANY LONGER.
LEXA, WE BOTH KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING TO YOU.
IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO FACE IT.
IT REALLY IS YOU, ISN'T IT? ONLY ADAM KANE WOULD BE ARROGANT ENOUGH TO SHOW UP HERE AFTER A YEAR WITH ADVICE -- INSTEAD OF APOLOGIES.
LEXA.
YOU PICKED A LOUSY TIME TO GO ALL "GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST" ON ME, ADAM.
YOU TOLD ME YOU WOULD HANDLE THIS AND YOU FAILED.
DON'T YOU DARE EXPECT ME TO TRUST YOU NOW.
YOU'RE THINKING WITH YOUR ANGER AGAIN.
IT'S A MISTAKE.
YEAH? SO WAS WAITING A YEAR TO CONTACT US.
WELCOME TO PROJECT NINE.
WHAT THE HELL IS THAT THING? IT'S A NEURAL JACK.
IT HIGHJACKS LEXA'S CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, GIVES SOMEBODY COMPLETE REMOTE CONTROL OVER HER.
OH, GREAT.
MAN, SHE'S A FIRECRACKER ON A GOOD DAY.
HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO TRUST HER NOW? SO ECKHART DID THIS? SHE TRIED LEAVING THE G.
S.
A.
AFTER WHAT ECKHART DID TO HER BROTHER.
THAT WAS HER PUNISHMENT.
WE GOTTA GET IT OUT OF HER.
I DON'T THINK I CAN.
ADAM WORKED ON THE PROBLEM FOR YEARS.
RAN DOZENS OF DIFFERENT EXTRACTION SCENARIOS.
IN 97% OF THEM SHE DIED.
SO WHAT DO WE DO? CAN'T TALK, JESS.
I'M IN A HURRY.
WE KNOW ABOUT PROJECT NINE.
WE DON'T BLAME YOU.
NONE OF THIS IS ANY OF YOUR FAULT.
OH.
WELL, THANKS.
DON'T THANK ME YET.
DON'T DO THIS, JESS.
COME ON! I GOTTA.
YOU'RE A WEAPON AS LONG AS SOMEBODY'S CONTROLLING YOU, AND I CAN'T LET YOU OUT UNTIL WE GET THEIR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER.
YEAH.
AGH! JESSE! ALL RIGHT, IT TOOK FOUR DOCTORS TO CREATE PROJECT NINE.
BUT THE ONLY ONES WHO KNOW HOW IT WORKS ARE ALL MISSING AS OF A FEW DAYS AGO.
WHAT, ARE THEY DEAD? WELL, HOPEFULLY THEY'RE IN HIDING.
NOW, WE KNOW THAT AT LEAST ONE OF THEM IS CONTROLLING HER.
AND ARNOT IS DEFINITELY DEAD, SO THAT LEAVES US WITH THREE POSSIBILITIES.
RIGHT.
GUYS, I'M HOPING TO HELL THAT ONE OF THEM KNOWS HOW TO GET THIS THING OUT OF HER NECK.
OKAY.
CALL ME OLD-FASHIONED.
I SAY WE START WITH THE LADY.
NAME IS DR.
BEATRICE LANG.
SHE'S THE TECHIE OF THE GROUP RESPONSIBLE FOR ENGINEERING THE IMPLANT ITSELF.
I SAY WE MAKE A HOUSE CALL.
CAN I GET YOU SOMETHING? YEAH.
HOW 'BOUT OUT? I'M WORKING ON THAT.
IS IT EVEN WORTH SAYING I'M SORRY? JUST WORDS, JESS.
YOU REALLY WANT TO HELP ME? GET THIS THING OUT OF ME.
THEY ATTACHED A SENSOR TO YOUR IMPLANT.
ANY ATTEMPT TO REMOVE IT, AND IT SENDS AN ELECTRICAL SURGE INTO YOUR BRAIN - IMMEDIATE HEMORRHAGE.
I WISH THERE WAS ANOTHER WAY.
WELL, FIND ONE.
BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT? I'D RATHER BE DEAD THAN SOMEBODY'S PUPPET.
LEXA MY LIFE.
MY RISK.
YEAH.
DR.
LANG? HELLO? DR.
LANG? AIN'T NOBODY HOME.
SHE'S HOME.
DR.
LANG? DID YOU BRING YOUR LIBRARY CARD? SECRET ROOM? PANIC ROOM.
TEN BUCKS WHO WAS MAKING HER PANIC.
OH, DAMN.
WELL, WE FOUND HER.
WHAT DID LEX DO? VAPOURIZE HER? SHE'S A FEW DAYS OLD.
LEX MUST'VE KILLED HER FIRST.
OH, YEAH, GREAT.
THEN COMES BACK TO SANCTUARY AND CRAWLS BACK INTO BED.
THAT'S NICE.
LUCKY SHE DIDN'T TRY AND KILL US IN HER SLEEP.
WELL, ONE DOC DOWN, TWO TO GO.
HOW ABOUT A DYING DECLARATION? DR.
JOHN GONZALES.
OKAY YOU READY FOR THIS? YEAH.
ME EITHER.
HERE WE GO.
COMPUTER, VOICE MODE ACTIVATED.
BEGINNING PROCEDURE.
CAUTERIZING SEVERED ATTACHMENTS.
WHAT'S GOING ON? WHAT'S GOING WRONG? IMPLANT DEFENCE MECHANISMS HAVE BEEN ACTIVATED.
HEART RATE FALLING.
BLOOD PRESSURE, 40 OVER 20.
COME ON, DON'T DO THIS.
COME ON! HEART RATE CRITICAL.
COMPLETE LOSS OF NEURAL FUNCTION.
COME ON TIME OF DEATH, 4:02.
RESET.
RESETTING SIMULATION.
YOUR FINAL REPORT? NO CHANGES.
THERE WERE NO SURVIVORS OF THE MAXXLON LAB BREAK-IN.
THE VIDEO SYSTEM WAS DISABLED, THE TRAIL OF ARNOT'S KILLER IS COLD.
UNACCEPTABLE.
YOU KNOW THE SITUATION.
THE THREAT THIS REPRESENTS TO US.
PERHAPS EVEN TO THE CREATOR.
WE CAN'T AFFORD TO LET THIS GO BY-- NEITHER CAN WE ASSUME THAT THESE ATTACKS ON US WILL STOP.
SO, WE'RE AGREED? WE'RE MOVING TO THE NEXT PHASE.
HAND OVER WHAT INFORMATION YOU'VE GATHERED.
THIS ISN'T NECESSARY.
GIVE ME TIME.
THE KILLER WILL BE FOUND AND EXECUTED.
WE'RE ASSIGNING THE FIXERS.
THERE'S THREE HUNDRED FEET OF ROCK ABOVE YOU.
I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE THAT KIND OF TIME.
IF YOU'RE GOING TO KEEP POPPING UP LIKE THIS YOU REALLY SHOULD START WEARING A BELL.
DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN I FIRST BROUGHT YOU HERE, I TOLD YOU THERE WAS A POINT AT WHICH YOUR INDEPENDENCE BECAME A LIABILITY.
THE SAFEST PLACE FOR YOU IS RIGHT IN HERE.
LET THE OTHERS HANDLE THIS.
YOU GAVE UP THE RIGHT TO ADVISE US WHEN YOU ABANDONED MUTANT X.
I DIDN'T ABANDON ANYTHING.
REALLY? THEY'VE BEEN THROUGH HELL THIS PAST YEAR.
WHERE WERE YOU? I'M SORRY THAT I COULDN'T HAVE BEEN HERE FOR YOU WHEN YOUR BROTHER PASSED AWAY.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF GAME YOU'RE PLAYING HERE, ADAM.
BUT MUTANT X DOESN'T NEED YOU ANYMORE.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I NEVER DID.
ALL THAT MATTERS TO ME IS THAT YOU NEED THEM.
I WORKED BACK CHANNELS TO HAVE YOU INSERTED HERE, NOT SO YOU COULD SAVE THEM, SO THEY COULD SAVE YOU FROM WHO YOU WERE BECOMING.
WELL, YOU WASTED YOUR TIME.
THANKS TO THIS THING, I'M BACK TO MY OLD TRICKS.
THERE'S A CHANCE WE CAN CHANGE THAT.
JESSE LIED TO YOU.
HE LET HIS FEELINGS FOR YOU CLOUD HIS JUDGEMENT.
THERE IS A CHANCE, A SMALL CHANCE THAT I CAN REMOVE THE IMPLANT, ALL RIGHT? BUT - IT'S VERY RISKY.
AND YOU HAVE TO TRUST ME.
DO ME A FAVOUR: HOLD YOUR BREATH ON THAT ONE.
OKAY.
FINE.
I CAN'T FORCE YOU TO LET ME HELP.
BUT THE OFFER STILL STANDS.
MR.
KILMARTIN.
WHAT? WHO? HOW DID YOU? NO TIME FOR ELOQUENT QUESTIONS.
WHAT IS THAT? PROFILES ON EACH OF THE DOCTORS RESPONSIBLE FOR LEXA'S IMPLANT.
IT'S THE LAST HELP I CAN OFFER HER.
I HOPE IT'S ENOUGH.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT? IF LEXA TAKES ANY FURTHER ACTIONS AGAINST THE DOMINION, I WON'T BE ABLE TO HIDE IT FROM THEM.
MR.
KILMARTIN, SHE WILL BE TERMINATED.
ALL RIGHT, NOW YOU GO TELL THE DOMINION THAT IF THEY GO NEAR LEXA OR ANY MEMBER OF MY TEAM, THEN I WILL BECOME A THREAT TO THEIR SURVIVAL.
LEXA! LEXA! LEXA! CAN YOU HEAR ME? LEXA? LEXA.
LEXA, WAKE UP.
WAKE UP! COME ON! WHAT HAPPENED? I DON'T KNOW.
UH, THE IMPLANT MUST'VE OVERLOADED YOU SOMEHOW.
ARE YOU OKAY? NO, JESS, I'M NOT.
HAVING SOMEONE INSIDE MY HEAD, KNOWING HE CAN MAKE ME DO WHATEVER HE WANTS I REFUSE TO BE THAT POWERLESS.
I WON'T.
HEY, YOU'RE ABOUT THE LEAST POWERLESS WOMAN I KNOW.
ANY MORE POWERFUL I'LL HAVE TO BUY YOU A CAPE.
LET ME OUT OF HERE, JESS.
I CAN'T.
LOOK, I JUST SPOKE TO YOUR CONTACT WITH THE DOMINION.
IF YOU ATTACK AND GET CAUGHT ONE MORE TIME I KNOW.
THEY'LL KILL ME.
YEAH.
I'M WAY TOO DANGEROUS FOR THEM LIKE THIS.
THEY'LL FIND OUT EVENTUALLY, SO I GUESS DEAD IF YOU DO, DEAD IF YOU DON'T.
HEY, I'M NEVER GOING TO LET THAT HAPPEN.
WHAT WAS THAT? THAT WAS GOODBYE.
UGH! LEXA! DON'T BE STUPID! SORRY, JESS, I HAVE TO DO THIS MYSELF.
AGH! LEXA! LEXA, COME BACK! AGH! ALL RIGHT, HERE GOES SOMETHING.
AGH! UGH! JESS, WHERE ARE YOU, MAN? I'M A LITTLE BIT BUSY RIGHT NOW.
DR.
LANG IS DEAD.
WE THINK GONSALVES IS OUR KILLER.
WELL, THEN WE GOT BIG PROBLEMS.
LEXA'S TURNED AND ON THE RUN.
OKAY, I NEED YOU TO STOP HER BEFORE SHE GETS TO HOWELL.
HE WAS THE SURGICAL SPECIALIST OF THE TEAM.
IF ANYBODY CAN GET THIS OUT OF HER NECK, IT'S HIM.
HE'S OUR LAST SHOT.
YEAH, WELL, HOLD ON, JESS.
STOP HER HOW? I MEAN, ASSUMING WE CAN EVEN FIND HER.
OKAY, I GOT AN IDEA, BUT I NEED YOU TO CHECK OUT THE MED KIT IN THE HELIX.
GOT IT.
OKAY, GOOD.
NOW TELL ME WHAT DRUGS YOU SEE.
UM WE GOT CORTISOL CODEINE, MORPHINE, EPINEPHRINE EPINEPHRINE! EPINEPHRINE, OKAY, THAT'S GOOD.
WHEN GONSALVES ACTIVATES THE IMPLANT, IT PUTS LEXA INTO A REM TRANCE.
EPINEPHRINE SHOULD SNAP HER OUT OF THAT TRANCE LONG ENOUGH TO WAKE HER UP -- AT LEAST TEMPORARILY.
WELL, WE STILL NEED A LOCATION ON HER, BUD RIGHT.
UH OKAY, WELL, LET'S JUST HOPE THAT GONSALVES DOESN'T KNOW ENOUGH TO TELL HER TAKE OFF HER COMLINK RING.
LITTLE HELP HERE, JESS? UH, YOU'RE ALMOST THERE.
TAKE YOUR NEXT HALL, LEFT.
WELL, SHE'S HERE.
MUST'VE JUST MISSED HER.
FREEZE! DON'T MOVE! CAN YOU GET THIS? OH, YEAH.
I SAID FREEZE! I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE ODDS HERE, BOYS.
HARDLY SEEMS FAIR.
GET BACK TO WORK! LEXA, DON'T DO IT.
NO, NO -- DON'T! YOU JUST KILLED THE ONLY CHANCE WE HAVE OF FIXING YOU.
I'M WORKING JUST FINE.
SEE? JESS, WE'RE BRINGING HER HOME.
JESSE, WE HAVE TO DO THIS.
ADAM, YOU GOT A HABIT OF TURNING UP WHEN I LEAST WANT TO SEE YOU.
YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TOLD HER.
YOU KNEW THAT SHE'D WANT TO TAKE THE RISK.
IT'S HERS TO TAKE.
JESSE, CARING FOR SOMEONE MEANS TELLING THEM ALL TRUTHS, EVEN THE ONES YOU WANT TO PROTECT THEM FROM.
TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO LEARN THAT.
BUT YOU STILL HAVEN'T.
YOU WANT TO HELP? TRY PUTTING YOURSELF OUT THERE.
IT'S EXACTLY WHAT I'M DOING.
OH, MY GOD.
YOU'RE REALLY HERE THIS TIME.
THIS TIME? YEAH WELL, I GUESS WE'RE ALL REALLY GOOD AT KEEPING YOUR SECRETS, HUH? WHY NOW? LEXA.
THE SURGICAL PROCEDURE.
YOU'RE THINKING THAT IT'LL WORK WITH THE TWO OF US.
WELL, COME ON.
WILL IT? ARE YOU SURE? I'M SURE IT'S HER ONLY CHANCE.
TRUST ME.
WELL, THAT'S THE ISSUE, ISN'T IT? NOW? I SEE SPOTS.
THAT'S THE OCCIPITAL LOBE.
KEEP TALKING.
THERE ONCE WAS A MAN FROM NANTUCKET OKAY, AND TWO OH, HER HANDS MOVED.
THAT'S THE UH THE THE GROSS MOTOR.
IT'S THE PRECENTRAL GYRUS.
IT'S JUST IN FRONT OF THE PARIETAL LOBE.
ALL RIGHT.
GOOD.
SO WE HAVE THE SURGICAL AREA COMPLETELY MAPPED.
NOW, I THINK THAT WE SHOULD DO THIS IN TWO PHASES.
FIRST, WE SHOULD NEUTRALIZE THE IMPLANT HARDWARE.
SO THAT IT DOESN'T SELF-DESTRUCT WHEN IT SENSES OUR INTRUSION, WE NEUTRALIZE IT HERE.
AND THEN WE CAN COMPLETELY SEVER IT FROM THE NERVE HERE.
NOW WE BOTH REMEMBER THAT I'M NOT A DOCTOR, RIGHT? RIGHT.
WELL, WE'RE BOTH A LITTLE OVER OUR HEADS HERE SO I'VE UPLOADED THE PROCEDURAL SPECS SO THAT THE COMPUTER CAN GIVE US A HAND.
GREAT.
JUST REMEMBER THAT ONCE WE BEGIN WE HAVE LESS THAN THIRTY-FIVE MINUTES TO COMPLETE THE ENTIRE PROCEDURE.
YOU READY? I'LL START AT THE SOURCE.
YOU CAUTERIZE THE CONNECTIONS.
ALL RIGHT.
ALL RIGHT, LET'S BEGIN.
HANG IN THERE, LEXA.
JESS? IF THIS DOESN'T WORK, KILL GONSALVES FOR ME.
DON'T WORRY -- YOU CAN KILL HIM YOURSELF.
SHAL, LEXA'S GOING TO BE FINE.
WE'RE ALL FIGHTING FOR HER NOW.
SOMETIMES THAT ISN'T ENOUGH.
WELL, I THINK WE SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SURGERY.
JESS SAID THE DOMINION SENT A BUNCH OF ASSASSINS AFTER HER.
WHAT? AND THEY THINK WE'RE JUST GOING TO LET THAT HAPPEN? THEY THINK IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO STOP HER.
JESS SAID THAT THEY WON'T BEND ON IT.
YEAH, WE'LL SEE ABOUT THAT.
WE HAVE TO WORK QUICKLY.
OUR HANDS ARE TIED.
LEXA IS A THREAT TO US.
SHE'S RISKED HER LIFE FOR YOU COUNTLESS TIMES.
YOU OWE HER MORE THAN THIS.
ALL WE'RE ASKING IS THAT YOU CALL OFF YOUR DOGS.
THE ASSASSINS ARE ALREADY ON HER TRAIL.
YOU ARE THE ONES WHO LET LEXA OUT TO KILL AGAIN, LEAVING PROOF OF HER CRIMES.
IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO ASSIGN BLAME HERE, LOOK TO YOURSELVES.
THEN MEET US HALF WAY, ALL RIGHT? BUY US SOME TIME.
WE'VE ALREADY STARTED TO REMOVE THE IMPLANT.
SHE WASN'T IN CONTROL OF HERSELF.
AND I AM NOT IN CONTROL OF THEM.
I CANNOT STOP THIS.
ALL RIGHT, JESSE, GOOD.
BUT WE HAVE TO KEEP UP THE PACE.
THE INPUT AND THE OUTPUT ENDS HAVE TO BE HANDLED SIMULTANEOUSLY.
ADAM, IT'S BUILDING UP TOO FAST.
STAY CALM.
WE CAN DO THIS.
COMPUTER, WHAT'S HAPPENING? STATUS? APPROACHING NERVOUS SYSTEM OVERLOAD.
ADAM, WHAT DO WE DO? STAY CALM.
IT'S NOT WORKING.
BLOOD PRESSURE FALLING.
THE IMPLANT HAS DETECTED US.
IT'S FLOODING HER SYNAPSES.
IT'S KILLING HER! ADAM, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE.
WE'RE LOSING HER.
JESSE, SIT DOWN.
JESSE! DON'T STOP! WE GOTTA GET IT OUT OF HER NOW.
HER SYSTEM CAN HANDLE THE STRESS.
I'VE BEEN THROUGH THIS.
IF WE WAIT, SHE WILL DIE.
JESSE, THIS IS NOT A SIMULATION.
COMPUTER, SEVER PRIMARY NERVE CONNECTION NOW.
SEVERING CONNECTION.
COMPUTER, ABORT! COME ON.
CONNECTION SEVERED.
AH! CAUTERIZING INITIALIZED.
PROCEDURE SUCCESSFUL.
LEXA, YOU MADE IT.
HOW'D WE DO? WELL, YOU WEREN'T MUCH HELP.
BUT WE WERE UNBELIEVABLE.
WHY ARE YOU LEAVING? BECAUSE I MADE MYSELF A TARGET AS SOON AS I CAME HERE.
NOW MY ENEMIES KNOW I'M ALIVE.
WHAT ABOUT LEXA? IT'S NOT OVER.
HE DOESN'T CARE.
YOU'RE RIGHT, BRENNAN.
THAT'S EXACTLY WHY I CAME HERE.
PUTTING MYSELF IN PERSONAL DANGER BECAUSE I DON'T CARE.
WHAT ABOUT THE DANGER YOU PUT US IN WHEN YOU ABANDONED US? YOU WERE READY.
AND YOU WERE SCARED.
WHATEVER WAS GOING ON, WHATEVER YOUR YOUR BIG SECRET WAS, YOU DIDN'T JUST RUN FROM IT, YOU RAN FROM US.
AND THAT'S WHAT I CAN'T FORGIVE.
BRENNAN, STOP IT! NO.
NO, WE BURIED HIM AND HE LET US.
THAT'S SICK.
HE DIDN'T MEAN IT.
IT'S OKAY.
ARE WE GOING TO SEE YOU AGAIN? IF I'M LUCKY.
I THINK OUR ONLY HOPE IS TO TRY TO TAKE DOWN GONSALVES.
SHOW THE DOMINION THAT LEXA'S AT LEAST USEFUL TO THEM.
YEAH, BUT WE DON'T HAVE ANY LEADS AND WE DON'T HAVE ANY TIME.
BOY, YOU GUYS REALLY DO GIVE UP EASY.
WELL NO, NO, NO -- YOU SHOULD BE IN BED.
I WAS.
UNTIL THIS WOKE ME.
GUESS WHO'S TRYING TO REACH OUT AND TOUCH SOMEBODY.
HEY, CAN YOU USE THAT TO TRACE THE SIGNAL BACK TO GONSALVES? NOW THAT IT'S OUT OF HER, HELL, YEAH.
GOOD.
BECAUSE ONCE YOU FIND HIM I'M COMING ALONG FOR THE CLEANUP.
NO.
NO, YOU'RE TOO WEAK.
YOU NEED SOME TIME TO HEAL.
NOT UNTIL I MAKE HIM PAY.
AFTER EVERYTHING HE PUT ME THROUGH, I NEED THIS, SHAL.
OKAY? THIS IS CRAZY.
THE DOMINION KNOWS AS MUCH ABOUT THAT IMPLANT AS WE DO.
THEY PROBABLY HAVE THEIR ASSASSINS TRACING THE SIGNAL RIGHT NOW.
SO LET 'EM.
EVERYBODY WANTS A PIECE OF LEXA? LET'S MAKE SURE THERE'S ENOUGH OF HER TO GO AROUND.
IT'S A BIG KNIFE.
COMPENSATING FOR SOMETHING? YOU TALK TOO MUCH.
YOU KNOW THAT? LET'S SEE IF I CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT.
THEY JUST NEVER WANT TO STAY DOWN.
TOOK YOU LONG ENOUGH.
YOU'RE GETTIN' RUSTY.
SURE.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? DID YOU FINISH THE JOB? YEAH.
ABOUT THAT SHE QUIT.
WHO IS THIS? WHAT DID YOU DO? OH SORRY, DOC.
THIS PUPPET'S CUT HER STRINGS.
DAMMIT! DON'T BE RASH, LEXA.
WE CAN STILL ENJOY A PROFITABLE PARTNERSHIP.
ALL OF US.
I'LL PASS.
BUT I'M ABOUT TO ENJOY THE HELL OUT OF THE NEXT TEN SECONDS.
YOU SHOULD BE THANKING ME.
WHEN ECKHART FIRST BROUGHT YOU TO ME YOU WERE JUST AN AVERAGE OPERATIVE.
UNDER MY CONTROL YOU WERE A VIRTUOSO OF VIOLENCE.
I DISAGREE.
AGH! I WAS NEVER AVERAGE.
TEN POINTS.
FIRST INSTALLMENT FOR THE DOMINION.
I ALWAYS PAY MY DEBTS.
ALL OF THEM.
IT'S DONE.
LEXA HAS RETURNED TO THE FOLD.
YOU'RE QUITE SURE? YOU HAVE MY WORD.
THE PIERCE SITUATION HAS BEEN HANDLED.
THE THREAT TO THE DOMINION NEUTRALIZED.
NOT YET.
BUT IT WILL BE.
BRENNAN WAS RIGHT.
I ABANDONED YOU.
BUT I HAD MY REASONS.
AND IT'S TIME THAT YOU HEARD THEM.
WE'RE LISTENING.
DURING THE LAST YEAR THAT WE WERE TOGETHER, I BECAME AWARE OF CERTAIN FACTIONS THAT WERE WORKING AGAINST US.
BUT I WASN'T QUITE SURE WHO OUR ENEMY WAS UNTIL RECENT EVENTS CONFIRMED MY SUSPICIONS.
OUR ENEMY IS THE DOMINION.
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? ALL THE PLAGUES THAT YOU'VE STOPPED, ALL THE GENETIC RESEARCH THAT YOU'VE GATHERED FOR THEM, THERE'S A FACTION WITHIN THE DOMINION THAT HAS BEEN DIVERTING ALL OF THIS FOR THEIR OWN SECRET AGENDA.
YOU MEAN FOR THIS PAST YEAR WE'VE BEEN FIGHTING FOR THE WRONG SIDE? ADAM, HOW COULD YOU LET US DO THAT? BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW THE WHOLE TRUTH.
BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW HOW DEEP THE CORRUPTION WENT.
BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW WHO TO TRUST.
YOU MEAN ME? YOU WEREN'T SURE IF YOU COULD TRUST ME? SO WHY COME BACK AT ALL? YOU SAY HOW THE SECRECY'S BEEN FOR OUR OWN GOOD.
HE NEEDS SOMETHING FROM US.
DON'T YOU? THIS YEAR'S BEEN HARD ON ALL OF US.
BUT MUTANT X HASN'T JUST SURVIVED.
YOU'VE THRIVED.
AND I COME TO YOU NOW BECAUSE I THINK YOU'RE READY.
READY FOR WHAT? FOR WAR.
THIS NEW FACE OF THE DOMINION THREATENS EVERYTHING WE STAND FOR.
EVERYTHING WE'VE EVER STOOD FOR.
FORGET ASHLOCKE, YOU CAN FORGET ECKHART.
THIS WOULD BE A WAR UNLIKE ANY WAR WE'VE EVER FOUGHT.
MAYBE A WAR THAT I'M NOT EVEN SURE THAT WE COULD WIN.
BUT I AM SURE THAT I DON'T CONTROL MUTANT X ANY MORE.
SO, IT'S UP TO YOU.
WHAT IF WE SAY YES? AS LONG AS I'M ON THE RUN YOU'RE NOT THE FOCUS.
BY MAKING MYSELF A TARGET, IT'S THE ONLY WAY THAT I CAN PROTECT YOU.
ADAM, THERE'S GOT TO BE ANOTHER WAY.
THERE ISN'T.
I JUST FOUND YOU.
I CAN'T LOSE YOU AGAIN.
YOU WON'T.
LOOK, LEAVING MUTANT X WAS THE HARDEST THING I'VE EVER DONE.
YOU'RE NOT JUST MY LIFE'S WORK.
YOU'RE MY LIFE.
AND I'LL RISK EVERYTHING TO PROTECT YOU.
