DC's Legends Of Tomorrow (2016) s02e07 Episode Script


1 Previously on "The Flash," "Arrow," and "Legends of Tomorrow" [Dominator snarling.]
Since we learned of them, we've been calling them the Dominators.
You can't do this alone.
I don't plan to.
Guys, thanks for coming.
This is Kara Danvers.
I went back in time to change the timeline.
It's called Flashpoint, and now things here are different than before I left.
You just erased a daughter from my life? He took it upon himself to change the timeline, and, because of it, my brother was killed.
There's no amount of feeling bad that could ever make up for that.
I'm having memories of a stranger, but she's not really a stranger.
What if, when you interacted with your younger self in 1987, - you - Inadvertently changed my past.
You're back! Oh, it's so good to see you.
I love you, Dad.
Call Lyla.
Tell her these Dominators aren't here peacefully.
Maybe they chose us because we couldn't fight back, because none of you are meta-humans.
What is their plan? [speaking alien language.]
The phrase loosely translates to, "We are nearing completion of the weapon.
" I can't believe that you guys escaped an alien spaceship.
Key words: alien spaceship.
- I have questions.
- They can wait.
Thanks for helping me get my sister home.
Yeah, man.
What's our status? Nothing, since the Dominators paid their little visit - to mess with our heads.
- Why would they do that? What if they were trying to pit us against each other, in order to gain intel about meta-humans? Man, I wish they would just send us an IM with a questionnaire.
Well, metas pose the biggest threat to their invasion.
It would make sense they'd want to get to know their enemies.
By kidnapping people.
Perhaps they were searching your minds for potential meta-human vulnerabilities.
I think it's time we return the favor.
What do you want to do? Kidnap one of them now? Ever since we fought off that one ship, they've kind of been in short supply.
Actually, I know where to find one.
I've been reviewing old Army footage of their first encounters with the Dominators, and I think I pegged the fight to [computer beeps.]
[explosions booming.]
Redmond, Oregon.
[soldiers groaning, gunfire.]
[weapons blasting, gunfire.]
[Dominator roars.]
[soldier groans.]
[Dominator snarls.]
You're suggesting we travel to 1951, abduct a Dominator, and interrogate it to determine their intentions.
They kidnapped us.
Seems fair.
Time travel.
I'm definitely in.
Okay, hold on, though.
Professor Stein and Caitlin have been talking about a way to take down the Dominators.
They could probably use your help.
Yeah, I mean, I'm with him, mostly 'cause I just don't want to lose my geek cred, but time travel! [squeals.]
I could take Amaya and Mick.
Do it.
- Yeah! - Okay.
And, uh, the new president called, which would be cool under different circumstances, but she wants to meet with us.
Let's bring Ray and Sara as backup.
What about me? I can do backup.
Can I talk to you for a second? I don't know.
I would like to minimize your involvement in this.
Why? Because I'm an alien? I also happen to be your biggest weapon.
You are an unknown quantity, and this is not personal.
Except that's exactly how this feels.
Kara, when I started living this life, it was just me.
I was going up against human threats That I could handle.
Then it was meta-humans, and I can handle that.
Now I learn that there are multiple Earths, and I was brainwashed aboard an alien spacecraft I am sure that was unnerving, but I don't I don't get unnerved.
But when I go up against something new, I push back.
Right or wrong, it is who I am, and it is what I do, so I'm asking for a little bit of space because I have to draw the line somewhere.
I need to claw back a sense of normalcy.
Please stay here.
This ship is everything! What type of propulsion system does it use? - No idea.
- Oh, my God.
That construct on the bow looks like it could be - some sort of time sphere.
- Yeah, no idea.
To operate a ship of this size, the deep-link nets would have to be [chuckles.]
Oh, my God, you'd have to use, - like, a quantum neural chipset - Hey, guys, guys.
Amaya and Rory are waiting for us on the bridge.
Can we just keep moving this along? - This ship is - Automatic? - Supersonic.
- Hypnotic.
Both: Funky fresh.
Professor? It's highly unlikely we can fashion a weapon with sufficient force to overcome the Dominators.
I was thinking the exact same thing, which is why I invited So what if, instead, we try to attack them with something infinitesimally small? I'm I'm sure you're familiar with the story of the lion with the thorn in his paw.
You used to love telling me that story when I was a kid.
The lion with the thorn in his paw is a parable, a story about a big, ferocious creature that is felled by something small.
So what do you need help with? Uh, I'm afraid it's it's classified.
Oh, juicy.
Some sort of secret government space weapon, no doubt.
Something like that, only this sort of work is slightly out of my wheelhouse.
Yeah, if only you knew someone with a PhD in nanotechnology.
Uh-huh, unfortunately, Raymond's busy working on other things.
I was talking about me.
Did the six years I spent at MIT magically slip your mind? Of course not.
Let's get to work.
[engine whirring.]
We made it.
This is the '50s.
Severe time jumps can cause nausea, temporary deafness [speaking gibberish.]
Linguistic disorientation.
[speaking gibberish.]
Clean it up.
We're gonna kidnap an alien.
I know I did not just travel through time so we could stay on the ship.
Ponytail, you're staying on the ship.
[speaking gibberish.]
I'll take that as, "Have fun storming the castle".
Oh, for real? You're gonna use "Princess Bride" against me? - [gagging.]
- Against me? - [vomits.]
- Okay.
I got you, girl.
Celebrating July 4th early? Ray made it for me.
You look like a star-spangled idiot.
We need to find the Army.
[explosion booms.]
[gunfire, men yelling.]
I think we found 'em.
[gunfire and yelling.]
[Dominator snarls, man shrieks.]
What are we waiting for? Let's grab an alien and get out of here.
Just waiting for one of the weaker ones in the herd.
[gunshot, Dominator snarls.]
[wails and groans.]
[both snarling.]
I don't think there are any weak ones.
Do you have any idea what's going on out there? It's a real-life Spielberg movie, and we're stuck in here.
I think I know what's really bothering you.
I'm having the worst case of FOMO while everyone else is out there kidnapping an alien? No.
I think you escaped 2016 to get away from Barry.
Excuse me.
I escaped 2016 so that I could come see the Waverider and so that I could time travel.
And? And also, yes, I wanted to get away from Barry.
Ah! You realize that's insane, right? You're holding a grudge against your best friend when the world is potentially going to end.
I'm sorry.
My "best friend"? He only killed my brother.
- He didn't kill - Okay, you're right.
He didn't literally kill my brother.
What I mean to say is, he was responsible.
Okay? He just needed to save his family, and in doing that, he ended up destroying mine.
You know, all this time traveling, fighting aliens, this is the stuff I used to dream about as a kid.
Yeah, me too.
But it doesn't feel like a dream.
It just feels weird.
Well, exactly, and it's only gonna get weirder.
So that's why we have to be able to rely on our friends.
I really wish I could right now, Felicity.
But he's not my friend.
[Dominators growling.]
[energy beam whooshing.]
- They're taking off.
- I don't get it.
Why are the Dominators attacking us, then just leaving? It's an RIF mission.
"Reconnaissance in force.
" Ah, look.
A straggler.
We need him alive, Mick.
I'm just gonna rough him up a little.
- Hey! - [Dominator growls.]
Whoa! [flames whooshing, Dominator wails.]
Aah! Squeal, you pig! Hey, Dad? Dad.
What? Oh, I'm sorry.
Can you hand me those induction clamps? Yes.
You know, this reminds me of that time we stayed up all night building my seventh grade science project.
Remember how mad Mom got when she found out you let me drink coffee to stay awake? No.
I mean, no, no, I should never never have let you do that.
Uh, I'm sorry.
Will you excuse me? Are you okay, Dad? I'm just preoccupied with my work, that's all.
You know, you're really taking this whole absent-minded professor thing to a new level.
- I don't know what you mean.
- Your daughter.
Ever since you've come back, you've treated her like a total stranger.
That's because she is a total stranger.
I'm sorry.
It's just that, when I last left 2016, that young woman did not exist.
Wait, you're saying Lily belongs to another timeline? That, when Barry created Flashpoint, she Unfortunately, this is all my fault.
You see, a month ago, I interacted with my younger self back in 1987 and unwittingly motivated him Me To sire a child.
So it's because of my carelessness that this Time Aberration exists.
She is not an Aberration.
She is brilliant and funny and a lot like you, just a little less uptight.
Please stop talking about her like this.
She is not a real person.
She is a real person.
She's your daughter.
When we finish fighting the Dominators, you're gonna go back in time and erase her? No.
I am going to restore the timeline.
Unlike your friend Barry, I have the luxury of fixing my mistakes.
Well done.
[guns cocking.]
I see that you've managed to catch us a specimen.
I'm afraid we're gonna have to keep this one.
Who are you? Just a humble civil servant.
- I don't like guys with badges.
- Easy, Mick.
We just want to ask a few questions.
We'd love to answer 'em, but - We're in a bit of a hurry.
- So are we.
[shots firing.]
Aah! You don't understand.
We're here to save the future.
And you can tell me all about it [echoing.]
When you wake up.
Crap, crap, crap.
Where do you think they're taking them? Those "Men in Black" types are probably gonna take 'em to a secret lab and run experiments on them.
- Have you seen "Stranger Things"? - Maybe too much TV, Cisco.
Life imitates art, Felicity.
Either way, whether you like it or not, we're gonna have to be the ones to rescue them.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
But we're the tech support.
This is tech support.
Set your phasers to "stun.
" This is why I hate the government.
Can't you two use your powers and get us out of here? Whatever they tranqed us with is screwing with our powers.
[Dominator growls.]
Hey, he's still alive.
Although something tells me none of us are gonna be alive for long.
This is the exact opportunity we've been looking for.
To get captured? No.
To talk with one of the Dominators.
And find out what they want with our planet.
Well, this is a first.
Talking with an alien.
[clears throat.]
Excuse me, Mr.
Alien Guy.
[Dominator shrieking.]
So where's the president? She's late.
Well, you got to figure she's got a lot on her plate, what with the whole alien invasion thing.
And her predecessor getting killed.
Hey, what'd you say to Kara earlier? She seemed pretty angry.
I didn't know she was capable of being angry.
We've got movement.
[tires screeching.]
I'm sorry.
President couldn't make it.
Who are you? If I tell you I'll have to kill you.
Look, we just want to know why you attacked our planet.
I mean, we're just down here minding our own business, then you guys just drop from the sky and attack us.
Why? [growling.]
There has been a recent emergence of meta-humans on your planet.
He's talking about the JSA.
We are here to determine if your kind are a threat.
- Let's start with him.
- [Dominator snarls.]
Rest of you will have to wait your turn.
Uh, I think we have a misunderstanding.
See, we're the good guys.
The president invited us here.
Barry, I think it's time we do something.
And fast.
[all grunting.]
[bullet ricochets.]
- Sniper! - On it.
[all grunting.]
[weapon blasts.]
[all grunting.]
We're trying to help you.
This is how you thank us? You don't understand.
The reason the xenomorphs are here Because they have a beef with the meta-humans.
Tell us something we don't know.
Like what exactly have we done to them? Nothing.
But they see individuals with powers such as yours as a future threat, and, frankly, so do I.
[Dominator shrieking.]
What do you think they're doing to him? Same thing they're gonna do to us unless we get out of here.
- [gunshots firing.]
- [men yelling.]
Oh, yeah! Y'all call for tech support? Great.
Saved by geeks.
Waverider's ready to take us back to 2016.
[Dominator shrieks.]
If we leave him here, they're gonna kill him.
So what? He's an alien.
Just 'cause they're douches doesn't mean we have to be.
- Well[chuckles.]
- We got to send him home.
How? Don't we have one of their ships aboard the Waverider? Yeah, but it's damaged.
Felicity's gonna help me fix it.
I am? I'm gonna help him fix it.
- See? - [Dominator shrieks.]
Oh, that doesn't sound good.
Guys, it's up to us to show the Dominators we're better than this.
[Dominator shrieks.]
The creature's nervous system is not unlike our own, which means it must be capable of experiencing pain.
[Dominator shrieks.]
[door bangs open.]
Maybe that's why he's screaming.
Don't worry.
We're gonna get you out of here.
He didn't even say thank you.
What is that? I think it's a transponder.
Where'd you get that? I may or may not have stolen it.
From his ship.
What does it do? I think we can use it to communicate with him when we get back.
Oh, my God, like an alien pen pal.
- Exactly.
- You kids finished? - Gideon.
- Yes, Mr.
Rory? - Prepare for, um - Time jump.
- Time jump.
- Time jump.
Course plotted for Central City, 2016.
If you're such BFFs with the Dominators Then why don't you call them off? We know you sent them packing once before, back in 1951.
That was just a reconnaissance mission.
What brought them back? You did, Mr.
He knows who you are.
You threatened the entire universe when you used your powers to upset the normal course of time.
You're talking about Flashpoint? How do you even know about They told us.
I made a mistake.
Okay? I'm not gonna let it happen again.
For the past 60 years, we have enjoyed a truce with your so-called Dominators.
You broke the truce.
What do they want? I've negotiated a deal with them.
If Mr.
Allen surrenders himself They will leave us in peace.
You really want to save the world? Here's your chance.
[electricity whirring and crackling.]
[engine whooshing.]
I can't see.
Why can't I see? At least you're not throwing up.
- [vomits.]
- Oh.
[transponder chirps.]
- What's it doing? - I don't know.
Either our food's ready or this guy's trying to call us.
Hey, how how do How do I answer? I Hey.
Oh, my God.
It's him.
He's even uglier than the last time we saw him.
65 of your years ago, you saved me from capture.
Listen, you don't need to thank us.
Yeah, he does.
He can thank us by turning around and heading home.
I will show you my gratitude by sparing your lives, but I cannot do the same for Barry Allen.
If your friend does not turn himself in, we will have no choice but to deploy a weapon that will exterminate all meta-humans.
It's a trap.
If they're that threatened by meta-humans, it's hard to believe they'd be satisfied with just one.
Yeah, well, if I know Barry, he's gonna want to be that one.
Well, Oliver's trying to talk him out of it.
And if he does, what's the collateral damage of the meta-bomb? Projected casualty count is around 2 million non-meta-humans.
Okay, so what if we negotiated with them? Yeah, I don't know if you noticed, but our last chat with him didn't go so well.
Well, what've we got to lose? Look, maybe we should contact them.
Then make it fast.
We've got incoming.
Dominator ships are coming in worldwide.
Including Central City.
Yeah, but they're not moving or anything.
- They're just sitting there.
- For now.
So much for the truce Secret Agent Man negotiated.
They're trying to leverage us into handing Barry over.
Contact the Dominators.
[transponder warbling.]
Looks like your friend's not calling you back.
No, he's not, but I got a plan B.
- Okay.
- If this came from the dropship and the dropship came from the mother ship, theoretically, I could use it to vibe us up there.
And if you can't? Then I'd be vibing us into the cold, unforgiving vacuum of space.
- So let's not do that.
- Yeah, let's not.
What an unusual gift.
You appear to be a meta-human as well.
Yeah, well, I figured you'd cut me some slack, seeing as how we saved you back in 1951.
Remember that? Much has changed on your planet in the last 60 years.
The threat of your kind has become imminent.
Listen, E.
We're not a threat.
Metas are protecting this planet.
And besides, the guy who tortured your ugly ass back in 1951 was human.
But what happens when a man like him inherits abilities like yours? We have seen it happen on countless other worlds, which is why we must exterminate your kind before the scourge of your planet becomes the scourge of ours.
[both gasping.]
Well, he's out of his giant mind.
What if he's right? What if, in using our powers to make the world better, we actually end up destroying it? Dude, I get it.
Barry screwed up.
Yeah, so did we.
Back in 1951.
We messed with time when we freed the Dominator.
Who's now coming to kill us.
This whole time, I've been mad at Barry, and now I'm the one who messed with time.
I just wanted to make things right, and we ended up making them worse.
I'm an idiot.
Can't stabilize the nanomolecular reaction.
Damn it! Well Speaking as a daughter, I'm not sure that outburst had anything to do with our project.
What, you think it's related to me? She doesn't know that you think she's an Aberration.
All she knows is that her father is keeping her at arm's length.
The world is being invaded by aliens.
I don't think this is the time for family therapy.
It is, when the world's best chance at a workable weapon is focused on getting her daddy to love her.
Lily? [sighs.]
I'm sorry.
Mom always said I got my temper from you.
No, no.
I'm the one who owes the apology.
If it feels like I've been keeping my distance, I assure you, it's nothing personal.
Yeah, it It feels personal.
No, I mean, it's not personal to you.
I'm sorry.
I wish I could explain, but my life has gotten rather complicated lately.
So? You raised me to enjoy complexity.
That's The nanomolecular reaction keeps breaking down because the replication is sequential, not Exponential.
The reaction requires greater complexity.
Why are you looking at me like that? Because I truly believe I'm seeing you for the first time.
[cell phone chimes.]
What is it? My friend Barry.
He's about to do something terrible.
This isn't up for debate.
It's not even a close call.
I mean Turn myself over to the Dominators, they leave the rest of the world alone.
No, it's not simple.
Barry, it doesn't matter what you've done.
You can't do this.
It's been an honor to know all of you, to fight alongside of you.
Now it's up to you to keep our home safe.
Barry! I'm not letting you leave.
No offense, Oliver, but you and what army? This one.
Listen, Red.
I don't like you.
But when you got a crew, you don't take a hit for the rest.
That was actually pretty inspiring.
I mean, up until the point that Mick compared us to a bunch of criminals, but According to the Dominators, we might as well be.
And maybe they're right.
Maybe we do more harm than good, but this is our chance to find out.
We're not letting you sacrifice yourself.
There's no way.
I don't care if that's what it means to be a hero.
You're not a hero to me.
You're my friend.
You know that ship that landed in Central City? It's opening up.
Here we go.
[alarm blaring.]
Reading reports of ships opening all over the world.
- Oh, frak.
- Talk to me.
Something from the Dominators' mothership just broke atmo, and, not to get too technical, but it's really, really big and falling to Earth really, really fast.
It's the meta-bomb.
Why would the uglies drop ships on us if they're just planning on blowing us up? Because the ships were a distraction to keep us from stopping the meta-bomb.
Too bad, 'cause we're gonna stop it.
We're gonna stop it, right? Let's hope.
We have to keep the Dominators at bay.
This might help.
I've mass-produced a small device that, when placed on individual Dominators, will cause indescribable agony.
Not the nicest invention, but this is war.
Nice going.
The caveat, of course, is that if we activate the weapons before all the devices are placed on the Dominators, they'll know what we're up to.
Well, we got to do it fast.
Only way I know how.
Damn, that's big.
I didn't think it was gonna be so big.
- What are we gonna do? - You got me.
I only know how to stab, punch, or skewer things.
Fry, you freaks! [beam whirring.]
See you later, Dominator.
[inhales deeply.]
This thing has to have a tractor beam, right? Yep.
[electronic beep.]
[both gasp.]
It's slowing down, but, like, barely.
Thank you, Cisco.
I haven't noticed.
Strap in.
Firestorm, if you're done playing with your friends out there, we could really use your help.
I'm on it.
[Dominator snarling.]
Oof! [electronic beeping.]
Good work planting Professor Stein's nano-weapons, but we still got Dominators all over the country.
This looks like a job for Supergirl.
Thanks, Felicity.
I'm not the least bit insulted.
Ah, sorry.
I meant Supergirl and Flash.
This is totally a job for the both of you.
That's what I meant.
Supergirl and Flash.
Firestorm, we're holding it up.
- But, like, barely.
- Not helping, Cisco.
- Firestorm, do it now! - Do what? I believe Ms.
Lance intends for us to transmute the meta-bomb into something harmless.
I was afraid you were gonna say that.
All right, devices are being planted.
Let me know when I can bring the pain.
Come on, Firestorm.
Grey, I can't do it, man.
It's too big.
Still waiting on that signal.
Do it! Done.
[Dominators shrieking.]
- It's working.
- What about the superhero bomb? I can't! I can't do it! You must, Jefferson.
I have a daughter.
Her name is Lily, and she's counting on you.
She's counting on both of us.
They did it! They can do that? They did that.
Ground, what's your status? [Dominators screeching and howling.]
They're retreating.
It's not just them.
It's all around the world.
He did it.
- No, Oliver - We all did it.
[thunder crashes.]
Many responsibilities have fallen to me since the president's passing at the beginning of this crisis.
Sobering, sad responsibilities.
This is not one of them.
Today, it is my distinct honor to bestow upon you a small acknowledgement of the great debt that the world owes to you all.
Is it just me, or is she really hot? Although your brave efforts must remain a secret She's hot.
Know that, meta-human or not, masked or not, each and every one of you is a hero.
Whoo! Whoa.
Thank you.
[upbeat music playing.]
[indistinct chatter.]
Hmm, hmm? Let's go drink.
- [glasses clink.]
- Cheers.
But you speak in tongues When the words you know won't get it done It's like looking into a mirror.
Yeah, you know what's funny? She really kind of looks like my cousin.
- Hey, hey.
- Hey.
Either of you ever save the world before? - Mm-hmm.
- Last year.
It doesn't get old, does it? Nope.
It sure beats screwing up the world.
Hey, you are too hard on yourself.
That's what people usually tell me.
And for good reason, I'm sure.
But, back on my Earth, it's just me and my cousin.
Between the two of us, we're more powerful than Yeah, everybody in this room combined.
No, no.
That's the point.
That's what you've all proven here.
Meta-humans or not, superpowers or not, you are Earth's mightiest heroes.
Um I owe you an apology.
Keeping you at arm's length was the wrong move, and Well, the truth is that this Earth could probably use a Supergirl.
Well, that's that's funny, 'cause I was just thinking my Earth could use an Oliver Queen.
I know you said you don't get unnerved - [sighs.]
- But if you did, I think hardship is what makes us stronger.
That's probably why these people look to you as their rock.
You guys feeling the group hug? - No.
- Come on.
Come on.
- All right.
- [laughs.]
Hey, Kara.
- I made you something.
- What? - Cisco.
- Yeah.
What, uh What is it? [chuckling.]
Oh, it's a It's an inter-dimensional extrapolator.
- Oh, I - It creates small breaches, so you can use it to cross over to our universe any time you need to.
Oh, my God.
That's amazing.
I also included communication functionality, so if you ever need any help, you can always contact the team.
Hey, Skirt.
Call me.
[footsteps approaching.]
All right, Grey.
How is it you have a kid? I didn't think I had to explain such matters to you, Jefferson.
Come on.
You know what I mean.
When we traveled back to 1987, I gave my younger self a lecture about neglecting Clarissa, and he And he followed your advice all the way to pound town.
You created an Aberration.
Which is why you cannot tell the team.
If you don't want me to tell the team, that means you I do not want to lose my daughter.
Something tells me you weren't invited here.
- Dr.
- Don't "Dr.
Heywood" me.
What the hell are you doing here? I like parties, and I'm here for the mop-up.
But you can't cover this up.
Agent Smith! It's so funny seeing you here.
I was just having the loveliest chat with your president about you.
I was telling her, on my Earth, we have a Department of Extranormal Operations, which deals specifically with aliens.
She thought as an excellent idea.
She also loved my pitch about reassigning you to Antarctica.
Maybe next time, you're a little nicer to strange visitors from another planet.
Pack a jacket! You ready to see if Cisco's gadget works? Ready.
And remember, if you guys ever need me, I'm just a call away.
Same here.
It's weird to think that all of this started with the two of us.
You ever think what it would be like if we never got on that boat? I don't know if I have to think about it.
I mean, maybe the Dominators showed us what our lives would have been like.
I know it was a prison, but in a way In a way, it was a gift.
- Stay out of trouble.
- Yeah.
There she goes, off to her spaceship, time traveling as if it's totally normal.
Well, John, it's like you said.
Normal sort of went out the window - when this one arrived.
- [chuckles.]
I may never understand you, man, but you're one of the best men I know.
Thanks, Dig.
So you forgive me for what I did? Barry, it's like I keep telling this guy.
You have to forgive yourself.
- Yeah.
- Good luck.
Yeah, thanks.
Well, we got to do this more often.
Get together, I mean.
I don't know if the world could take it.
I meant, like, without the world being threatened.
If the world wasn't being threatened, what would we do? [indistinct chatter.]
I'm just saying, next time, I'm gonna get you.
