Alice (2020) s01e12 Episode Script

Episode 12

"I cannot go back to yesterday," "because I'm a different person from who I was then.
" ("Alice in Wonderland") (Episode 12) Keep quiet if you want Jin Gyeom to live.
Yes, I'm here.
Are you on your way? Did you think you could save Park Jin Gyeom by doing this? The matter is out of my hands now.
(Director Seok Oh Won) Mr.
Ko, your choice today will cost you both your wife and Park Jin Gyeom.
Captain! What do you mean? What about Director Seok? Director Seok Oh Won isn't the man you think you know.
He's a time traveler.
Listen to me carefully.
Director Seok wants time travel to continue.
That's why he has been killing off those who are trying to stop it, and also why he's looking for the last page of the book.
It talks about how one can end time travel.
He wants to stop that from happening.
Why is he trying to kill Detective Park, then? Because Jin Gyeom can close the door to time travel.
We have to find the last page first.
That way, Jin Gyeom can close the door to time travel, and all of this will be over.
I want to find it, too, - but how can we - You can find it.
That's your fate in "The Book of Prophecy".
Survive, and do what you have to do.
I'll do what I have to do.
Captain! What are you doing here? I didn't know you meant this much to Mr.
It was you? When did it start? How long have you been fooling me? Your mother asked me the exact same question.
You killed my mother because of time travel? Professor Yoon Tae Yi.
How was it, being with her? There are multiple worlds.
Infinite worlds exist in the parallel universe, and in each, another version of us exist.
Once the capacity to travel across time expands, death will be nothing but meaningless.
In such a world, you'll be able to meet your dead mother again.
As you said, even if my mother exists in multiple other worlds, I have one mother.
And nothing will change the fact that you killed your mother.
That's too bad.
I don't know about anyone else, but I thought you'd understand me.
I don't care why you people have traveled across time.
What's important is that innocent people here died because of time travel.
There's one thing you don't know.
How do you think time travel became possible? It's all thanks to one researcher.
So, you shouldn't be blaming me.
You should blame your mother.
That researcher is your mother, after all.
Did you find where Detective Park went fishing yet? I'm searching, but this isn't easy.
Just give me some more time.
We have to be quick.
Detective Park is in danger.
Detective, what brings you here? Detective.
Yoon Tae Yi.
Who are you? How do you know my name? He's after you.
Be careful.
I'm sorry I can't help you.
Don't give me that garbage.
To be honest, I couldn't understand either.
Why did your mother betray us and try to destroy time travel that she created? It's probably because she predicted this would happen.
Are you not afraid of dying? Yes, I am.
I'm very afraid that I'll die without capturing you.
Jin Gyeom! Jin Gyeom! Don't come closer! It's dangerous! Jin Gyeom! Mr.
Ko! Mr.
Ko! Don't come closer! Mr.
Ko! You need to escape.
Run, Mr.
Ko! Mr.
Ko! Mr.
Let's get to the hospital.
Jin Gyeom.
Let me rest now.
I am sick of life, now that I've lived it twice.
Don't talk.
Don't talk, Mr.
I'm sorry I couldn't keep my promise.
I should've caught him for you.
Stop it.
Be a man.
Stop crying.
You have a long way to go before you'll be a man.
I need to teach you so many things.
I thought I'd live happily once I was here.
But I kept thinking about her.
My wife who had lived a lonely life and died a lonely death because of me.
By the time I traveled through time, my life had already stopped.
So Jin Gyeom, don't let the past bog you down.
The present is what's important.
Okay? The people by your side now.
Okay? But still, I was happy.
I got to meet you and I got to meet my wife again.
So I was happy, Jin Gyeom.
Me too.
I was very happy too.
Hyeong Seok! Hyeong Seok.
Hyeong Seok.
Seok Oh Won is neither at his home nor at the lab.
I think he fled.
What happened? No, right? I heard wrong, right? Mr.
Ko is fine, right? Why won't you say anything? Say something! No.
You can't.
I have to see him.
Please let me see Mr.
Ko! I have to confirm with my own eyes! Let me see Mr.
Ko! Where are you going? There's something I must do for Mr.
Ko! Sir.
What do I do now? What do I do now? What do I do? (Jin Gyeom) (Director Seok Oh Won) (Murder Case Report) (Crime Scene Notes) I don't care where you are.
Whether you flee to the future or to another dimension, I'll find you by all means.
And I'll kill you with my own hands.
Just you wait.
I hope the funeral goes well.
One of us wants to stop time travel while the other wants it to continue.
Isn't that ironic? Why are you here? The others are waiting for you.
What did you and Mr.
Ko talk about? Detective Park.
Did he tell you why he went there? Did he mention anything about Seok Oh Won? Different people do different things to forget their pain.
And none of them are right or wrong.
But you shouldn't run away like this.
Stay by Mr.
Ko's side.
That's your duty as his son.
I'll be with you.
(Ko Hyeong Seok) A moment of silence.
(Ko Hyeong Seok) At ease.
I thought time travel would make people a lot happier.
People often make mistakes, fall short, and say goodbye to loved ones.
If time travel could allow us to right our wrongs and meet the people we want to meet, I thought we'd become happier.
Maybe your mother thought the same as I did.
But because of time travel, my mother was killed.
So was Mr.
If we don't do anything, the same thing will happen over and over.
Don't come see me for the time being.
- Detective Park.
- Being with me might put you in danger.
Ko told me to find the last page of "The Book of Prophecy".
But I don't believe that book.
I'm a scientist.
Your mother was one too.
I'm sure she found another way.
By any chance, do you still have your mother's computer? We might find something useful there.
I want you to stay out of this.
I still don't think time travel itself is a bad thing.
It's just that some people abuse it.
Please let me help catch those people.
I used this computer for years after my mother passed away, but I didn't find anything unusual.
She even made time travel possible.
Don't expect to find anything easily.
Let me have a look.
How are you going to fight against time travelers if you can't stand this much? We will catch him.
But don't get hurt.
This was activated 10 years ago.
Everything seems normal.
It only called a few numbers.
And Seok Oh Won's isn't one of them.
Have you found out Seok Oh Won's recent whereabouts? Yes, and there's one strange thing.
His car.
It was driven while Seok Oh Won was locked up in the warehouse.
But it was never stolen or used by his family members.
Did the flip phone make any calls from around the warehouse that day? (Domestic call) Yes, from a nearby mountain.
It's estimated that he's been dead for five days.
Let's see if you can save your son again.
The real Seok Oh Won was killed after being locked up.
We won't be able to catch whoever killed Captain if we do this.
Who'd want to investigate when the suspect was found dead? We need to open up what we have so far and conduct an investigation with different parties.
They won't believe us even if we opened up.
What are you going to do now? I heard that Seok Oh Won came by to find the last page of "The Book of Prophecy" here.
Let's find it before he does.
(Clean-cut ankle) (Seongsin Inn) You don't look well.
What brings you here? I'm done checking the surveillance camera footage regarding Lee Se Hoon's murder.
Is that right? That's great.
Well, did you find anything? What's wrong? I didn't find anything.
There was nothing peculiar, either.
You told me to report to you once I check the footage.
That's too bad.
I was wondering who was behind this.
Me, too.
It's too bad, really.
Are you sure he was trying to get Park Jin Gyeom? Yes, sir.
We have to beat Park Jin Gyeom to this.
He certainly has something to do with us.
And track Ko Hyeong Seok's whereabouts - before he got here.
- Yes, sir.
Who's the gift for? Your boyfriend? Just someone I'm very thankful for.
Detective Park! Do I look so much like her? So much that you think of her every time you see me? Didn't he tell you? That you look like his mother.
How old are you? Why do you ask? Have you ever had a son? Do you really not know who I am? Why do you cry every time you look at me? Professor This must be your mother.
She looks just like me.
I wasn't trying to hide it on purpose.
I'm an idiot.
I know that there are time travelers, and I've traveled through time myself.
Why didn't I realize this? When you first saw me, you must've been shocked.
I'm meeting someone.
I'll get going first.
I'll drive you.
No, I can go myself.
I heard that you met Ko Hyeong Seok before he died.
Did he say anything? Why do you ask? Is this for Detective Park, too? Someone is trying to kill Park Jin Gyeom.
Why are you so worried about him? You've been unnecessarily nice to me, too.
Is that your personality, or because you think I'm Detective Park's mother? Do you know what fears me the most? No longer being seen as who I am to certain people.
They are looking at me, but instead, they are looking at someone who looks just like me.
They are with me, yet thinking of someone else.
When I first met you, I had thought that you were someone I knew, too.
But every time I see you, it gets clearer that you're not the person that I'm thinking of, for a person becomes who they are based on the experiences they have in their time.
Anyway, it's all because of us.
Sorry for causing so much trouble.
Who are you? I'm Yoo Min Hyuk from Alice.
I'm Yoo Min Hyuk from Alice.
We'll take "The Book of Prophecy".
Where is it? Where's the rest? Tell me! I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
It's okay now.
What's your name? Tae Yi! Are you okay? I called Park Jin Gyeom, so he'll be here soon.
Okay, then.
I'll go now.
My father was murdered.
Tell me why.
I don't understand what you mean.
You were there too when my father died.
This is a hospital.
Take good care of the professor.
What happened? I met your mother before.
(Sungjae Hospital) I'll come back tomorrow.
Don't think about anything, and sleep.
Your mother saved my life.
Thanks to her time traveling, I was able to survive.
But because of time travel, which your mother created, my father passed away.
I'm sorry.
It wasn't your fault.
It wasn't our fault.
I thought through time travel, people would meet only the people they wanted to meet.
I never imagined that people who should never have met would meet as well.
What is my relationship with your mother? What about with you? Professor.
It would've been better if I had never met you.
It would've been even better if I didn't know about the past.
I know that we never should've met.
But I was happy I met you.
Cheol Am.
Why did you send Tae Yi and me to Dr.
Jang Dong Shik? The order came from headquarters.
You know that.
Was headquarters involved in Tae Yi's death? Don't be stupid.
Why would they do that? Professor Yoon Tae Yi is Dr.
Jang Dong Shik's daughter.
The 1992 Tae Yi met another Tae Yi.
Cases like that of Tae Yi were very likely ever since we came here.
We have to accept paradoxes like that.
Don't simplify it.
Because of time travel which we created, Yoon Tae Yi here had her life flipped upside down.
But no more.
I'm going to stop it.
Yoon Tae Yi started to get her memory back.
We should be able to find the last page soon then.
Let's talk.
It's important.
I need to show you something.
Come to my room.
I have nothing to say to you.
I'm trying to help you.
I told you.
I don't need your help.
Don't look at me that way.
If you hadn't lied, Tae Yi wouldn't have died.
If I had found out just a little bit sooner, I wouldn't have let her die like that.
Is that why you're seeing that woman? - To fool yourself? - What? Tae Yi, whom you loved, is dead.
You're right.
Tae Yi's dead.
She died because of you.
I will never forgive you.
Had I known it would end up like this, I would've killed her personally myself.
(Jin Gyeom) Ma'am.
You scared me.
Are you here to see the lieutenant? What about? What about you? What are you doing here? He changed the code.
You and Jin Gyeom are doing something, aren't you? Well What is all of this? This is classified information.
You can't look at it.
Step aside.
You really can't look.
(Park Sun Young, Yoon Tae Yi) ("Teacher"?) Are these people all time travelers? (Seongsin Inn) Why are you so jumpy? Let's talk.
Can we talk later? I'm a little busy.
It's about Min Hyuk.
Then I don't need to hear it.
If Min Hyuk investigates this case, he'll find out about me.
Like you did.
And I need to get rid of Min Hyuk before that happens.
If you help me, Min Hyuk won't know anything.
Are you telling me to keep my mouth shut? I've made the best decisions for Alice so far.
And I always will.
That's why I'm giving you a chance.
A chance? A chance to get Min Hyuk back.
There's something we must retrieve from Yoon Tae Yi.
Once we get it back, I don't care what happens to her.
Our destinations may differ, but we take the same path.
As long as that woman in the past is alive, Min Hyuk will be swayed.
("World-renowned Physicist Dr.
Jang Dong Shik Murdered") (Dr.
Jang Dong Shik) (Physics professor at Hanil University) Hello, is this Hanil University Physics Department? This is Professor Yoon Tae Yi at Hanguk University.
I'm looking for some information about Dr.
Jang Dong Shik, who was a professor 30 years ago, or someone who can tell me about him.
No, it's a personal matter.
I'll be waiting for your call.
Thank you.
(Seongsin Inn) (Jin Gyeom) The person you have reached is not available.
- Hello.
- Hello.
I visited Hanil University where Dr.
Jang taught, but they don't have much information left.
By the way, it seems like Professor Yoon is looking for her father.
The present is what's important.
The people by your side now.
Okay? Lieutenant Park.
What's on your mind? I'll go see Professor Yoon.
That's all for today.
Submit your reports by email by the end of this week.
Come to my office if you need help with your thesis schedule.
- Okay.
- Thank you.
Are you the one who asked about Dr.
Jang Dong Shik on the phone? Yes, that's me.
My father was friends with him.
The phone is turned off.
I didn't expect to hear back so soon.
I see.
Was your father a physicist too? What's going on? Who are you? That doesn't matter.
What matters is who you are.
Do you know who I am? Yoon Tae Yi.
You're always the problem.
Both then and now.
Professor! Professor.
I heard you're the one who found a witness.
It must have been hard.
Why did the girl have to jump off the rooftop when Jin Gyeom was there? Everyone suspected the innocent boy.
Apparently, some delinquents did a horrible thing to the girl.
Really? Oh, my.
Poor girl.
I threw in some more.
Jin Gyeom is in his senior year now.
I'm sure the incident will bring good luck.
He'll enter a good university.
He sure will.
You know what a good student he is.
See you.
I can't believe that kind woman has a son like him.
That looks great.
Good job.
(Psychopath) (Psychopath, Monster, Murderer) Get out of my way.
Quick! (Psychopath, Monster, Murderer) (Jin Gyeom.
Reception is unavailable in this area.
) Detective! Mom, I'm home.
(Hope Orphanage) Tae Yi.
(Sung Yoon, Mom) Other than her memory loss, there's nothing concerning about her health.
Does she really not remember anything? No.
You're her aunt, but she thinks you're her mom.
Based on that, I don't think she remembers anything.
But don't worry.
The injury isn't too severe, so her memories should come back soon.
Mom! When did you come home? You should've called me.
I told you.
When? In the living room.
I have to study.
All right.
I'll get changed and cut some fruit up for you.
(Alice) I've seen the last page of "The Book of Prophecy".
All time travelers will disappear.
She was likely murdered because of that last page.
You shouldn't be here.
He became a detective to catch the person who murdered you! Why would I kill my mother? Accept it.
Who are you? You even sound the same as me.
It was you.
