Alphas s02e08 Episode Script

Falling

Previously on Alphas I have this thing where I can't remember anything that happened, like, more than a month ago.
That's gotta be lonely.
You said that you would bring my dad around to our way of thinking.
Do you understand everything I'm risking for this? Someone close to us is working with Parish.
Cameron, is that one of Dani's paintings? Yeah, she just finished it.
You haven't seen it before? Yes, I have.
This is what we came here for, the ultimate rush.
Hold this.
Put it under your tongue.
It gets hot, and you'll feel it moving through your body.
Just look at your hands.
You'll know when it kicks in.
- This is insane.
- That's why it's so awesome.
It's not gonna hurt, right? No.
All right, who's first? - Let's go.
- Let's do it.
High dive from the 21st floor.
- Right? - That was awesome! - That was amazing.
- Totally.
Are we doing it again? Hey, Doc, you want whip cream? No, not for me.
Thanks, Nathan.
Uh, forgive me for intruding on your family this way, especially at this hour.
Not a problem.
When you said the investigation into Parish's inside source is moving forward, um What do you mean? The abduction was a break for us.
When your team tracked you down, they opened a door into Parish's communications network.
Now, it closed pretty fast, but we were able to get a flash clone of his cell log.
Every number Parish called, every number that called him.
It's encrypted.
Tight as hell, but NSA's been working overtime to decode it.
They could have something solid on his inside source in three, maybe four days.
Four days? And then you'll be certain? We're moving as fast as we can, Doc.
Believe me, I want to get this S.
O.
B.
as bad as you do.
Daddy, daddy! We don't have any tape.
This guy tells me last night he's got a model of the whole solar system that's due today.
You better hurry up.
Thanks.
I don't know.
Do you help 'em? Kids have to learn how to deal with their own problems, right? Indeed, they do.
Yeah.
Nathan, I'd love to have a look at whatever you have concerning these encrypted phone numbers.
I can't do that.
These internal investigations are tight.
I can't even involve my own people.
We'll get him, and he will never see daylight again, because I'm gonna put him in a room and I'm gonna throw away the room.
This is from the net.
Analysts kicked this video over to us.
Now, either there are four people with the exact same Alpha ability, or there's some kinda drug that's turning people into Alphas.
Either way, we need to get to the bottom of this.
Right, Bill.
I trust you to take the reins on this one.
Uh, okay, I can do that.
So you just want me to keep you updated? Yes, please.
Gare, got you a present.
Tada! Oh This is a plant.
Yep.
You're not supposed to just give someone a plant.
This could have bugs in it.
You're welcome.
It's for your man cave.
Bill, we need to call the exterminators.
- Oh, come on, Gary.
- Kat's brought some bugs into the office.
All right.
Gary, I just sent you a YouTube link, okay? I need you both to focus.
Focus is my middle name.
No, you can't know that for sure.
Gary, I need you to do face grabs off the video, okay? - I-- - Check the Internet for any matches, okay? We're looking for any indication that these people may be Alphas.
Hey, what about me? You can call the exterminator.
Bring bugs in here? You take care of that.
Douche bag.
- Hey.
- Hey.
So I thought of another thing for Friday night.
My mom will offer you coffee as soon as you get there, but you must turn her down three times before accepting it, and then once you take it, you have to drink it all.
Every last sip.
Okay, I'll make sure I come thirsty.
Oh! And don't compliment anything in the house, like a painting or a lamp, because they'll insist that you take it home with you, and then afterwards, they'll complain about it, like, "you're the boy who stole the lamp.
" I'm serious.
Oh, I know.
It's justyou're cute when you're worried.
Does this look like the face of a worried person? - Rachel.
- Uh-huh? You know I've been in actual combat, right? Yes.
I think I can handle dinner with your parents.
Yes.
Yeah.
- Okay.
- Okay.
Breathe.
Deep breaths.
So he's not an Iranian lawyer.
Your parents will just have to deal.
He's the blondest boy I have ever seen.
They're gonna rip him to shreds.
Mwah! Lala, daddy! Dr.
Rosen.
Gary, w-would you close the door, please? Gary, I need you to handle an assignment for me.
I'm already doing a case for Bill.
But I-I can multitask.
Gary, um-- you can't speak to anyone about this.
If, uh, that makes you uncomfortable, I understand.
No, I'm not uncomfortable, 'cause I'm a secret agent.
Secret's what I do best.
Secret's my middle name.
Hey, Tyler! How are you, pal? How was the flight? Bumpy, but they had TVs.
There's somebody I want you to meet.
This is my friend Dani.
Hey, Tyler.
I hate it when the flight's bumpy too.
Come on.
Hey, that's a-- that's a nice deck.
How long you been skating? A while.
Well, I know this cool skate park over on the westside.
You wanna check it out? Sweet.
Um, Dad, can we go? Yeah, of course we can.
Busted! Bill! She's a criminal! She's busted, and I get to cuff her.
Hey, get up! Assume the position! Get up! You assume the position.
Get off me.
Bill, bring your cuffs! Gary, what the hell are you talking about? The- I found the guy from the video.
Look.
He's, like, the ringleader.
- Yeah.
- And this is his Facebook.
And that picture, it was taken last year.
Okay, so? So, Bill, look there.
It's her.
She's one of them.
I kinda look hot with pink highlights.
Alphas 2x08 Don't take no for an answer and there's no telling where we've been 'cause people don't understand understand, understand people don't understand people like me Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
This picture's only showing that she met the guy, right? We don't even know if he's doing anything wrong.
No, he is doing something wrong, Bill.
It's drugs.
This is drug-related.
It's called "Jump.
" I found more videos.
Okay, so, Kat, I don't suppose you remember who this guy is, do you? No.
But he's having a party tonight, and if Gary can get his address, I can get reacquainted.
I mean, maybe score a little Jump.
Uh, I'm essential to this case now, right? No, I'm not gonna send you in blind.
Okay, you don't even remember if you know the guy, or where you left things with him.
But you'll have my six.
I'll be fine.
No! Bill's not gonna have your six.
- Gary.
- He's my partner! He gets my six.
You're not even a real federal agent.
Gary, Gary, please.
Let's--let me take it from here.
- Oh, I leave? - Yeah.
You're in cahoots.
Kat, undercover work is no joke.
You don't have any field training, okay? And if this Dylan Renfro guy is dangerous-- I kicked your ass.
Aren't you supposed to forget things? I wrote that one down.
He said to lose my life or lose my love Right.
That's the nightmare I've been running from so let me hold you in my arms a while Locate Dylan and feel things out.
Anything seems off, get the hell outta there.
Relax.
I watched New York Undercover and Donnie Brasco last night.
I got this.
It's real life, not a movie, girl.
Kat! My soul will soar above the trees I've been looking everywhere for you.
Kickass party.
You don't have a clue who I am, do you? I've been pushed off your mental TiVo.
Maybe you should refresh my memory.
You mind? Do I look like I mind? Let's grow old together That's gross.
Oh, come on.
Kat, why are you kissing this guy? I don't wanna see that.
Let's grow old together We were together.
Yeah, I can kinda tell.
I said I've got no time I have to go What the hell, Dylan? Easy, April.
Kat's an old friend.
Hey.
I thought we were gonna hang out tonight.
Just give us a minute.
He said my heart is feint will minds regret I get the feeling I'm getting in the middle of something.
Are you guys together? Are you kidding? You're irreplaceable.
Um What are they doing? Havin' a good time.
- Damn.
- Whoa.
That's not a fun party, Bill.
Come on! Not even a scratch.
I'll have what he's having.
You mean this? And die at the same time let's grow old together and die at the same time let's grow old together and die at the same time let's grow old together What exactly does this stuff do, anyway? Come on.
I'll show you.
Kat, where you goin'? Kat, you're going out of range, okay? I can't hear you.
Gary, follow her on the comm.
- Yeah, yeah, in the alleyway.
- Follow her signal.
We should just leave her.
She's useless.
Watch your step.
Come on.
- Can I open them now? - No.
- Please? - No, a couple more steps.
Now.
I was hoping you'd come back so we could do this together.
Come on! You were always crazy brave, right? I know you forget stuff, but that doesn't change who you really are.
Trust me, kitty Kat.
Kat? You all right? It was incredible! Mmm, no, we gotta go.
We gotta go.
So my mom's gonna keep on offering you food no matter how full you are, and you have to keep on eating it.
- All right, good tip.
- Okay.
- Rachel.
- Yeah? You speak Farsi.
Six years in the Middle East, you're bound to pick up a couple things.
Hey, I'm complicated.
You don't peel back an onion like this in a couple weeks.
John You should've told me that.
I wanted it to be a surprise.
There are rules, Kat.
And rule number one: You don't dive off a freaking roof.
That doesn't sound like a real rule.
Everything's a joke to you, isn't it? Kat, where you going? I should've never let you go undercover.
Why, because I did so well? Look, there's a weird-ass drug out on the street, and I got a sample of it.
Plus, I found out what my favorite color is.
You have a sample of it? It's green.
Thanks for asking.
Where's the sample, Kat? Right in here.
Who's Donnie Brasco now, bitch? I made that.
I made that with a label maker.
We don't have any "top secret" stickers.
We needed some, so I-- I made 200.
This is what Cley got off Parish's phone.
The NSA is still working on it, but I cracked it.
You didn't even ask me to, but I cracked it anyway.
Well, what does it mean? It means that I took initiative.
No, I know, Gary.
Um, thank you.
But, no, the numbers.
Oh, yeah, you were right.
It's telephone numbers.
It's a very complicated system, Dr.
Rosen.
It was--it's even harder to crack than Anna's code, but I think it must've been made by a-a supercomputer, or an Alpha.
Gary, I want you to write down any of these numbers in the New York area that are still active, all right? Yeah.
You saw that thing with the can, right? You mean when he threw it in the garbage? Yeah, he's quite the little environmentalist.
Off the wall, into the recycling bin, and he was barely even looking.
Cam, don't.
I mean, what if he is? Does it matter? Yes, it matters.
Maybe I can help him understand it, you know, so he doesn't feel like such a freak.
I don't know, I think I should ask your dad to run some tests on him.
No, no, no, no.
Listen.
My dad ran a few tests on me.
It basically ruined my life.
This is your ruined life? Uh, you, me, and ice cream? No, this is pretty friggin' perfect.
I love you, you know that? Hey.
Me too.
Dad? Are we playing video games? Yeah, pal, hang on.
Get ready to get your butt kicked.
- Yeah, okay.
- All right.
Here we go.
Oh, wow.
What? The compound in Kat's blood.
It reshaped the tissue at the molecular level, creating a short-term form of chitinous, which What? Itit made, um, a protective shield around the body like Kevlar skin.
So jump makes you indestructible? Maybe not.
One of the kids in the video, Tony Dolan, he was found dead a day after he jumped.
Let's get an autopsy on that, please.
I already got it, but it doesn't mean I actually understand it.
Tony died of cardiac fibrosis.
The hardening didn't stop at his skin.
It solidified his heart.
Yeah, there were eight cases of cardiac fibrosis in the metropolitan area.
That's in the last three weeks.
So Jump can make you indestructible, but it can also kill you.
Kat, we need to get you checked out, and we gotta get this drug off the streets.
Dad.
Hi, Danielle.
What's wrong? Is--is mom okay? Everything's fine as far as I know.
I just wanted to see you.
It's, uh It's been a while.
Well, um, come on up.
Sorry.
It's, uh the same as always.
Wow, these are different.
Yeah.
Uh, it's not done yet.
Well, they're nice, uh, very nice.
Oh, my goodness.
You still have this one after all these years.
Yeah.
I still like the way the hands came out.
Yeah, in Mr.
Tzodee's class, - Yeah.
- Boy, you hated him.
I think you said it was his bad breath.
Yeah.
Oh, I really did tell you everything back then, didn't I? Well, you still can, Dani.
Yeah? Sure.
Oh, there is, um there's one thing.
Cameron.
- Right.
- I mean this is me we're talking about.
I just keep wondering how I'm gonna screw it up.
It's inevitable, right? Dani, nothing's inevitable.
Not in this life, anyway.
Yeah, and I'm starting to believe that too.
Right.
You okay? Yeah, I'm just, uh-- just, you know, uh-- I'd love a cup of tea.
Yeah.
Uh, yeah, of course, yes.
You make yourself at home.
Still no sugar, right? Uh, right.
There you go.
Oh, yes.
Lapsang souchong road tar tea.
I remember.
- Morning.
- Morning.
I know that look, Lee.
Don't worry.
I'm all over this.
Got the NSA to triple their manpower on the investigation.
You came by house to light a fire under my ass, and I heard you, loud and clear.
Thank you for your diligence.
Oh, by the way, Nathan how'd it turn out with your son's solar system project? I did Neptune and Saturn, and had to hear about 300 Uranus jokes.
Kid needs your help, what are you gonna do? Hey, tonight's the night, huh? John versus the Pirzads.
Should be on pay-per-view.
He speaks Farsi.
Well, great.
He'll knock it out of the park.
Yeah.
I canceled dinner.
I thought this was what you wanted.
It is.
I mean, it was.
All right, spill.
What if my parents actually like him? Then what? Then you have a hot boyfriend.
That's what people call a real relationship.
Not that it's a topic I know much about at the moment.
What if I'm not ready? The last time I had a real boyfriend was over three years ago.
Three years, no sex? I can't.
With him, I had to get so drunk I couldn't feel anything.
That was three years ago, and John isn't that guy.
Yeah.
But I'm still me.
And I'm a total freak.
No, Rachel, you're not.
Think of everything you've done since then.
Think of everything you do here, every day.
You're strong, and you're capable, and we're all freaks.
That's my favorite? Chocolate chili and rum raisin? Really? You're messing with me.
Seriously? Where's the trust? Okay.
Oh, that's really good.
It's disgusting.
But you love it.
I'm starting to think I'm really weird.
But so friggin' cute.
So, uh, what are we doing tonight? Can we get more Jump? I can get as much as we want.
Got the New York franchise.
Do you deal it? Let's just say I know where to get it.
Mm.
I have something.
It's yours.
You gave it to me the last time I saw you.
This is mine? This is mine.
The first day we met, you were hustling money doing that knife trick from aliens.
Just trust me.
You know the one where you stab really quickly in between your fingers really fast? I thought you were badass.
You thought I was handsome.
We were both right.
Who's J.
D.
? I have no idea.
Before my time.
I really missed you, Kat.
You can't arrest him.
Kat, this is rule number two for field work, okay? Whatever I say is what goes.
Now, we're gonna arrest him, okay? We're gonna lean on him, and then he gives up his source.
That's the way it works, Kat.
But-but I-I can get him to tell me who's making this stuff.
I know I can.
Kat, you got out of him what you could, okay? Now, in an hour, I will have an arrest warrant.
Now, you did your job.
Let me do mine.
Thank you.
Nice one, pal.
Hey, listen.
I want you to hit this next one right down the third base line, okay? Come on, pal, you're not even trying.
I suck, okay? I don't wanna hit balls anymore.
I just-- I just wanna go home.
Okay, look.
We'll go home.
We'll, uh, we'll play video games, all right? Whatever you wanna do.
No.
I wanna go home.
My home.
Tyler.
Hey, that's for an official government vehicle.
You're not allowed to take that.
And you're gonna go and help a drug dealer.
You're not allowed to do that either.
Gary, Gary, look.
I care about this guy.
It's like you care about Bill, and if he was in trouble, you'd help him, right? Yeah, I'd help him.
Yeah, I'd get his six, 'cause he's my partner, but we're federal agents.
You're just a civilian.
No, Gary.
Gary, you're right.
- Yeah, I know I'm right.
- Look, I need your help.
I'm not authorized to do this on my own.
Only a real federal agent can check out an official government vehicle.
What do you say? Huh? I can't be b--yeah, yeah.
But I'm driving.
Okay, fine.
Can you drive? Yeah, of course.
I passed the test online.
I got a perfect score.
But I'm better if I don't drive on roads where there are other cars or people, just 'cause--'cause they don't always obey the rules, and I could mow people down.
Okay, how 'bout on the way back? I, uh--yeah, okay.
You wanted to see me? Hi, Nina.
You okay? I need a favor, Nina.
Sure.
You've always been there for me.
How long would it take you to get a passport under a false name? I could walk into a federal building and come out with one today.
Dani? Tyler, I'm sorry, okay? Whatever I did, I'm sorry.
Whatever, Dad.
I just wanna go home.
- Come on.
- Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Come on.
Hey, what happened? I took him to the park to hit a few balls.
Okay, Dani, I had to know.
No, Cam, you didn't.
Hey, Ty, can you come out here for a minute? I don't wanna talk to him.
Okay, well, you don't have to talk to him.
You can just talk to me.
I don't wanna talk to you either.
I don't even know you.
That's fair enough.
How about no talking? Promise.
Tyler, have you heard about Alphas? Dani! I guess.
WellI am one.
Give me your hand.
Cameron, this is how you made Tyler feel today.
Tyler, this is how your dad feels about you.
Oh, pal, I am so sorry.
Dad? I thought that you were disappointed in me.
But this feels like I don't know what to call it.
It's just how I feel, pal.
It's love, Tyler.
Here, come here.
Parish is manipulating her.
She's hooked on his ideology.
And Cley is on the verge of catching her, Nina.
I just have to get her away from here.
Away where? Anywhere where Cley or Parish can never find her, ever.
Now, I have some money set aside-- Yeah, a recovering addict in a strange place? With no support system and money to-- she'll be dead in three months.
They'll send her to Binghamton, Nina.
You know they will.
Well, I suppose I'm as much at fault as she is.
I've made so many mistakes.
Dani's made her own.
You can't keep blaming a screwed up family life forever.
You taught me that, remember? Maybe the best thing you can do is just Let Cley do his job.
No.
No, no, no, no, no.
You know how Cley handles things.
Anything could happen.
She could be dead on the street.
Nina, she's my daughter.
Dylan? Dylan! You've gotta get outta here right now.
Where are we going? Look, not "we," you.
Look, I'm working with the government, sort of.
Look, a TAC team's gonna bust down your door and arrest you.
You gotta go.
I trusted you.
And I'm here to make it right.
We don't have much time.
Okay, okay.
Just let me grab some stuff.
Dylan? What the hell? What are you doing? Oh, my God.
You're the source.
He's mine.
I'm his Alpha now.
No, we're getting out of here.
We are leaving.
No.
Come on.
I'm gonna get you out of here.
I wanna be with him.
He's using you.
He's going to kill you.
She'll be fine, kitty Kat.
She's my golden goose.
I'll take care of her, just like I took care of you.
You're such a boy scout.
You're always getting pissed off about something.
And I always find you, after you forget.
We'll do this again.
We always do.
Couple of months from now, you'll be back in my bed.
Kat.
Kat! Kat, come on, get up.
Get up.
You weren't answering your earbud, so I-I came for you.
I got your six.
- Oh, thanks, Gare.
- Yeah.
He's getting away.
I called the police, but they're not here ye-- oh, no, don't do that! Those are drugs.
Come on.
Kat, that's drugs.
Don't do drugs! Bill said no drugs, Kat.
Get in.
Get in.
Come on, kick in.
Come on! Screw it! Oh, oh! Reconsider.
Whoa, whoa, no--oh-oh! Never touch me again.
Well, um, have a good flight.
- See you in a bit.
- Yeah.
Come on.
Hey, hey, easy tiger.
Excuse-- easy.
I didn't have anything with him.
Just his piece of Alpha ass.
Well, the good thing is that you won't even remember in a couple weeks, right? Yeah, that's the problem.
I'm the perfect mark.
Who knows what the hell he had me learn to make him a few bucks? Well, according to him, he could never get you to do anything too crazy.
Just pick a couple of pockets or rewire some alarms.
Did you beat that out of him? No.
I told him that, uh, I'd give you another shot at him.
Thanks.
For a second, I thought that actually meant something.
Probably wasn't even mine.
It's yours now.
Why don't you let that be a memento of your first time undercover.
All right? Oh, no, come on.
Mmm.
Come on, come on.
Ah, nah, nah.
Shouldn't do that.
That's inappropriate.
We don't squeeze other agents.
Oh, good thing I'm not a real agent then, huh? Speaking of which, I can no longer send an untrained and undisciplined civilian into the field.
Quantico's FBI Academy.
Now, normally, this program takes about two years to complete.
I pulled some strings.
I think you can tackle it in abouttwo weeks? - Oh, thank you! - All right.
Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! I didn't hear a yes.
Is that a yes? - Oh, thank you, Gary! - Oh, no, don't--no.
Don't do that to me.
No, I don't like that.
Ooh, Gary! You're squeezing my six.
Come on.
Grow up.
Dad! Uh, what are you doing here? He isn't coming, Dani.
I don't know what you're talking about.
I Parish.
He's not coming.
I sent the message.
You think you know everything.
No, no, I don't.
You don't know him.
You don't know me.
Well, I know enough right now to know that if you keep-- I was on the street when he found me.
Okay, I-I wasNothing.
I was screwing guys for a bag of dope, Dad.
$10.
Okay, that--that's who I am.
I am your father, Dani.
That's why I am here.
I want to help you.
I don't need your help.
I didn't do this to hurt you.
He said he would bring us together.
That's never going to happen.
Please, Dani, don't run.
Don't.
What did you do? I just need you to be safe.
DaniI need to see your hands.
Dani, show me your hands.
John, the guns aren't necessary.
Dr.
Rosen, I've got this.
Back off! Dani, I have to take you into custody now.
I want you to put your hands on your head.
I want you to lay face down.
What the hell is wrong with you, hmm? Cameron-- You turned her in! Please, understand, if I had any other option, I would have exercised it.
She's your kid! You're supposed to protect her.
You were supposed to protect her.
I just really feel like I should have seen it.
None of us did.
I mean, not even Rosen.
He must be heartbroken.
No, hearts don't really break.
They can stop, and they can leak, but they can't really break.
It just--it gets tired.
Gives up after a while.
Dani, I know how difficult this must be for you.
No.
No, it's a relief.
Dad Dad, can you do something for me? Of course.
Tell them to put me in building seven.
Put a chip in my head.
Oh, God, Dani.
- Please, dad, please.
- Oh, my God, no.
I just want to forget.
I want to disappear.
No! I'm not gonna do that.
Dani, that-- that's not gonna happen.
Listen.
This--this isn't the end, Dani.
It's-- There's an opportunity here.
It-- yes, yes, there is a way out.
I don't want a way out.
Will you--will you please listen to me, please? Please, Dani.
