Colony (2016) s03e01 Episode Script

Maquis

Previously on "Colony" I represent a resistance group based outside the wall.
We have a RAP.
Just needs the gauntlet to tap into their communication.
We've got the target.
Get out of there.
She can't she can't be dead.
She never told us where her base was.
She never told us anything.
A recovery operation for the gauntlet.
We'll find it through border inspections during the evacuation.
- Were you going to tell me? - I got the call last night.
Dare I ask what they're planning instead? Total rendition.
I'm being transitioned into a position with the Global Authority.
I've carved out a place for you on my staff.
We need to leave the bloc.
We could contact Snyder.
If we make a trade, do you have the juice to get us out of the bloc? I want to come with you.
I just don't want to be a rat anymore.
I'm staying.
When you get outside, you need to make contact with Noa's people and get this to them.
Ow.
Ow.
Ow, ow.
Breakfast ready yet? I don't know when I turned into a short-order cook.
It's because you're useless at all the other chores.
"Useless" seems like an unnecessarily hurtful choice of words.
You dyed all my T-shirts pink.
What am I, a laundry service? How's "Treasure Island"? I don't really trust Long John Silver.
That's a good instinct.
Good morning.
Gross.
I know, right? If either of you wants more privacy, there are tools in the garage and wood in the forest.
You can build your own house.
You two missed another beautiful sunrise this morning.
Mm, I wouldn't say that we missed it.
It's early today.
We got to move.
Get 'em in the shelter.
It's coming up on the mark.
It should turn around in three, two, one.
What's it doing? Should we run? Hold.
Why did it break the pattern? It crossed the survey line.
Think it was responding to something? There's no way to know.
Maybe we should move to the backup cabin.
It didn't come in this direction.
And even if it does, we've rigged every inch of this place with booby traps and alarms.
It still beats LA, right? I got one! All right.
That's it.
Keep the tension on it.
Don't jerk it.
That's it.
That's it.
Keep your tip up.
Strip line, strip line.
Don't jerk it.
That's right.
That's it tip up.
There we go.
Almost.
Almost.
Oh-oh! There he is.
It's a big one.
Gonna be delicious.
All right.
Look at that.
You're a natural.
I like it here.
Yeah, me too.
Are we gonna stay? As long as it's safe.
Sometimes I miss seeing other kids.
Yeah, I know.
At least you got your brothers, right? This isn't gonna stop a drone.
There's a lot more than just drones in these woods, love.
I feel like a Masai tribeswoman.
Good.
Those women walk 40 miles across the Serengeti for water without complaining.
A little help? 17, 19, 5, 36, 22, 86, 114.
Any luck? Your daughter catches fish faster than I can net 'em.
Where have you been? I have to show you something.
I've been using a radio direction finder.
A what? It's basically just a receiver with an S meter.
I've been tracking the number station, and one of the signals is really strong, so I tried to triangulate her position.
She moves between every broadcast, but if you assume she's on foot You're gonna have to explain this stuff.
She's close.
Like, really close.
You want to try and contact her.
If we respond on the radio she'll just change the station.
That's what they're trained to do.
Not if we tell her that we have the gauntlet and give her someplace safe to meet.
You've just proved that if we use the radio, we'll give away our position.
You keep talking about how important the gauntlet is, how it might be worth everything that happened in the bloc, but we're just sitting up here with that thing, doing nothing.
Your father's right.
But this is amazing work.
We just have to figure out what to do with it.
Gin rummy.
Best of five.
I don't play with cheaters.
For the last time, I was not cheating.
- Those were the rules.
- Rules that you made up to win, otherwise known as cheating.
Well, it's not my fault you're bad at cards.
"Bad at cards"? Young lady, I'll have you know that I won the Sherman Oaks Municipal Poker tournament twice.
Where's Bram? 5, 19, 17, 22 What do you want? Is it really healthy for a young man to spend all of his time listening to some lady read numbers on the radio? Are you here to give me the sex talk? I would, but unless you've fallen in love with a bear, I don't see that it's gonna be of much use.
Well, then thanks for stopping by.
I overheard you talking to your parents.
You spied on us? The walls are thin.
The point is that you were right.
You need to reach out to the Resistance.
Why do you suddenly care so much about the Resistance? As much as I've enjoyed our little mountain sojourn, we can't survive up here forever.
We'll either run out of supplies, or one of the drones will find us.
Or maybe a bear.
I'm just encouraging you to pursue your hobby for all our sakes.
- Yes! - You're cheating.
How many games of gin rummy you think those kids have played? Enough to wear out the cards.
Gracie's a shark.
She tried to play me for a piece of chocolate the other day.
So Bram Yeah.
He's bored off his ass.
I don't blame him.
He may be bored, but he's still got a point.
We can't stay here forever.
Why not? What are we supposed to do, wander around the desert looking for a Resistance camp? I'm frustrated.
A lot of people died for that gauntlet.
What do you want to do? You're right that we can't expose ourselves.
But there's got to be another way.
Okay.
Okay, we'll try.
But in the meantime, this isn't so bad, right? I mean, we're like Swiss Family Robinson.
- They have an Uncle Snyder? - Oh, hell, nothing's perfect.
Hmm.
Come here, you.
Oh, come on.
Mm.
- I've got the kids.
- What the hell was that? - Drones.
- Are they coming here? What was it? Some kind of ship.
It crashed a few miles away.
The Hosts' first response will be search and rescue, but then they're gonna lock down the area.
- Did those drones spot us? - I don't think so.
We got to get out of here.
We're more likely to be spotted on the move.
Yeah, and if those things go into search-and-destroy mode? We need more information.
I'll go up the mountain, see if I can get eyes on that crash site, see if it's close enough that the drones are gonna be on us.
- You're coming with me.
- What? Why me? 'Cause you're the only one that might know something about that ship come on.
You know, in my experience, you don't have to work so hard to find problems.
They usually come and find you.
Less talking, more walking.
I'm doing my best.
Your legs are, like, nine feet long.
You ever heard of a RAP ship crashing before? You mean other than the one your son detonated over the bloc? That's a chopper.
Sounds like a Blackhawk.
Probably the Authority's ERT Grayhats, trained for quick deployment.
If there's a human response, this wasn't just an accident.
Something bigger is going on.
Then we need to get to that overlook.
Let's go.
Are you sure this is the right spot? Unless somebody moved it.
We have to get this to the Resistance.
What if they really have a RAP? This could be the thing that wins the war.
- Don't you care? - Of course, I care.
A lot of people suffered for this thing, maybe the whole LA colony.
Which is why we have to use the radio.
- It's too dangerous.
- A ship just crashed.
There are drones everywhere.
It's already dangerous.
I hear you.
That's why we have to be extra careful.
I will be careful.
Maybe the Resistance can get us out of here.
Who's in charge? You or Dad? We're all in charge.
We make decisions together.
That's not true.
I know that you agree with me about the radio.
That means it's two to one.
- We'll talk about it later.
- You know I'm right, Mom.
If we stay here, the RAPs are gonna find us, and everything that you did will be for nothing.
We can't go out there.
They'll spot us.
Right now they got bigger fish to fry.
You want to bet your life on that? What do you think's gonna happen if they cordon up this area and end up catching us? You're a former proxy who went rogue with the most wanted resistance group in Los Angeles.
I'll just tell them that you kidnapped me.
I can be very convincing.
We're going to that observation deck, and you're gonna tell me exactly what you see.
Come on.
Okay.
Why are the drones attacking that thing? Isn't it one of the RAP's own ships? Your guess is as good as mine.
Really? It doesn't look like one of the Hosts' ships.
They're usually less streamlined.
Then what the hell is that? There was a rumor at the IGA about the Factory.
Some people thought it was designed to build space-based weapons.
Defense weapons? The RAPs have enemies? We were in a cabin for six goddamn months and you never thought to mention that? There were a million stories flying around the IGA.
Did you expect me to repeat every rumor that I heard? I'm looking at a lot more than a rumor.
Maybe the RAPs are at war.
Maybe that ship came here to attack them.
Or maybe a group of humans stole a RAP ship that I haven't seen before, and it just got shot down.
There's no way to know.
- This is huge.
- Why? Suppose you're right, and there is a war.
We'd just be a bunch of cavemen stuck in the middle throwing rocks.
Or maybe we find an ally.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
That's the same logic the Japanese used when they sided with the Nazis.
As I remember, it didn't exactly work out well for them.
We got to get out of here.
Where are we going? Oh, we might not be going anywhere.
We'll decide when your father gets back.
I don't want to go back to Los Angeles.
Neither do I.
We'll find another place, a safe place.
Another colony? Let's take it one step at a time.
If we have to leave, we'll start by going to the house down the hill.
Why can't we just get rid of that thing? Because it's important.
But they'll stop following us.
That's important, too.
We've kept that thing because we don't want you and your brothers to have to live like this for the rest of your lives.
Maybe Maybe it can help us get back to the way we used to live to the old world.
That world's gone.
Lead team approaching position one.
Do we have eyes in the sky? That's a negative.
Air support is circling, but we don't want to alert the target.
Copy that.
What do you think those RAPs are gonna do when they're done destroying that ship? Not exactly talking about my area of expertise.
If anything escaped, they're gonna want to find it.
Back in the Rangers, we would've secured the perimeter and then covered every square inch of that landing zone.
I still think it's better to hide.
Those drones are gonna be in search-and-destroy.
They'll shoot anything that moves.
You know, maybe maybe we should indistinct chatter] We want them alive if possible.
Everyone understand that? - You think they came for us? - Yeah.
They're preparing to hit the cabin.
Run ahead and tell Katie to meet at the rally point.
I'll draw their fire.
Move! Shit! Take cover! Take cover! He's over there! Jesus.
- Grayhats.
- How many? I don't know.
Too many.
- Kids? - I got the kids.
Do what you need to do.
Hi, guys.
- I need you to follow me, okay? - What's going on? Uh, you know the game hide-and-seek, right? I don't want to play that game.
They're shooting guns.
Yes, which is why we have to go.
- Emergency plan? - Emergency plan.
Ten bogies outside, at least.
God damn it! We got to clear out.
Alan? Kids? Two minutes.
Wait.
Okay, go.
Go, go.
Gracie.
Get 'em moving.
Honey, come with me.
Come on.
Katie! Katie.
I'm okay.
I think it hit my backpack.
- Oh.
- Bram, you okay? We're clear.
We need to buy more time for Snyder and the kids.
We're just about out of tricks.
Bram, go and help them.
We'll try and slow down the Grayhats.
Give us ten minutes.
If we aren't there by then, get to the backup cabin and hole up.
We'll meet you there.
- You good? Let's go.
- Yeah.
Come on.
- Everyone okay? - Yeah.
I'm glad you're here.
Get them in the truck.
- Where are you going? - To help your parents.
- How? - I don't know, but I owe them.
Shots fired! Keep low.
Got movement.
Down there.
Copy that.
Will, that's a kill zone.
I know.
Stay with me.
- Got 'em? - Yeah.
Hold your fire! What What the hell? Not the first time.
Come on, let's go.
- They're in the back.
- Good, we got to get moving.
Where's Snyder? He went back for you.
Snyder? We wait for him? We can't.
He knows where to meet us.
You guys all right? Hold on.
Hold it right there.
Hold it! Give it a rest, buddy.
He's fine.
- What the hell are you doing? - Mr.
Snyder.
I called for a rescue operation, not to be part of a Civil War reenactment.
This doesn't look like a secret Resistance base.
You don't say.
Then why'd you activate the locator? I don't know.
Maybe because a giant alien ship just got shot down over our heads? Strange days.
None of that changes the job that you volunteered for.
Well, I can't live like this anymore.
I'm done.
You're done when the job is done.
You want the gauntlet, right? Well, you can have it.
It's right here.
We could've had it before you left the Colony, and believe me, we'll get it.
In the meantime, you're gonna lead us to the missing Host.
I've been with them for six months.
They have no idea where the Resistance base is.
Well looks to me like we just motivated them to go find it.
Now The locator.
Do not turn this on again until you have eyes on the missing Host.
We're not done.
Will Bowman has an excellent reputation as an investigator.
You're gonna need a convincing cover story when you see him again.
Sorry, Will.
We knew it wasn't gonna last forever.
We have to find Noa's camp.
We owe it to Broussard.
We made a promise.
Yeah, I know.
I know.
Hey, Dad.
Jesus, what happened to you? I ran into a couple Grayhats.
One of them hit me with his rifle.
They probably have orders to bring me in alive.
I am a high-value target, after all.
- How did you get away? - They walked into a booby trap.
I-I ran away, and I didn't look back.
Sounds like you got lucky.
I don't feel lucky.
I'm fine.
Thank you.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
The important thing is no one followed me.
How do you know that? I guess I don't, which is why we should move.
Not until you answer some questions first.
What kind of questions? How'd the Grayhats find us? Why are you asking me? I don't know.
They they probably spotted us during the aerial survey after the crash.
Those guys didn't stumble on us.
That was a strike team.
They came here organized and ready.
What can I tell you, Will? We're here.
We're alive.
We should just count our blessings and move on.
After the Arrival, a lot of guys in my line of work died counting blessings when they should've been asking questions.
He helped us, Dad.
He got Gracie and Charlie in the truck, and then he went back looking for you.
That true? I'm just trying to do my part and help the family.
We should move.
So does that mean that I can climb aboard? Yeah, hop in.
Hello.
Whoever is listening, this is the Los Angeles Resistance.
We have the package, and we're ready to bring it to you.
Over.
What? Dad said you have to say "over" when you're done.
I repeat, this is the Los Angeles Resistance.
We're friends of the pilot.
We're in danger and on the run.
If you want the package, this is your last chance to get it.
Over.
What is it? I don't know.
Up there, the trees.
What would chop them off like that? Whatever hit 'em.
Smart thing to do would be to get back in that truck and get the hell out of here.
Someone there? Are you the one who was breaking protocol? Who is this? I'll ask the questions.
What are your names? Your real names.
It's been a long time since your secret identities were secret.
What do you have to lose at this point? Bowman.
My name is Bram, and my parents are Katie and Will.
Noa mentioned your name.
We've been waiting a long time for you to make contact.
There's a little bridge called the "Middle Fork" in Smith River.
Meet me there in 48 hours.
And bring the package.
There's something inside.
Is that what they look like inside the suit? I don't know.
Someone's gonna be looking for this thing.
We got to get out of here.
Come on.
