The End Is the Beginning Is the End

1 TABBY: Previously on Endlings You need to stay out of this one, Johnny.
- It's not your choice.
- Yes, it is.
The cops said if I mess up again - They'd take you away.
- He used to be way angrier.
- What changed? - I don't know.
This Endling can pass on its camouflaging abilities through its horn.
I get to go next.
Some animals change their colors to show their moods.
- I think she's happy.
- [ALIEN SHRIEKING.]
JOHNNY: Watch out! She's gonna freeze out there.
We got to get to her before the cold does.
That specimen that you brought back from the farm? - It's gone.
- Got it.
TECH: The trigger mechanism suggests that it may have been used as a trap.
- She looks like she's in pain.
- Bring me back a piece of that thing.
- [ALIEN GROANING.]
- Blasters up! [SCREECHING.]
I'd go invisible instead of red, unicorn.
JULIA: She's not camouflaging.
She's showing us how she's feeling.
TABBY: What are you doing, Finn? JULIA: Great idea, Finn.
Maybe to get close enough to turn off this trap, we need to show this Endling how we're feeling.
Yellow, for happy.
Everyone, get any yellow that's on you and give it to Tabby.
[GROANING.]
And fast.
- [RADAR CHIRPS.]
- Sixty-two.

Hyaaaah! [SIREN WAILING.]
We've got a police cruiser behind us.

Split the convoy.
One of us needs to make it to our destination.
Bait and switch.

- [LING TRILLS.]
[SIGHS.]
How many times do I have to tell you, okay? I'm fine.
I'm fine! SHARON: Johnathan, if you could just sit and talk with me.
JOHNNY: Okay, you're not listening to me.
I'm fine! - He says he's fine.
- [DOOR SLAMS.]
It can take kids a while to see past their anger and open up.
Especially if they've experienced abuse like Johnathan.
But he did talk a lot about Betty, though.
[CHUCKLES.]
Just be there for him.
I will, Sharon.
Here are the extra resources you asked for, okay? Thank you, thank you very much.
And I'll be back next month for our next check-in.
Hang in there, Kenneth.
- I'll try.
- Okay.
Looks like we're not the only ones setting traps.
[DISTANT SPARKING.]
Let's move! Let's go! [ENERGY PULSING, ALIEN GROANING.]
JULIA: We can't stop them all! ABIONA: Get away from them! There's too many of them and Uni's really hurt.
- It's going to be okay.
- TABBY: How? How is it gonna be okay? Because we're not going to give up.
That's what they want you to do.
Give up because you're tired or scared or don't think that you can win.
But we can't win.
[DRONES CLANGING.]
Maybe not today, but there's always tomorrow.
So let's give them a fight that will make them think twice about ever coming back here.
For Uni? For Uni.
For Uni.
Uni.
Blast them! That will be all.
Thank you, officer.
You put a tracker on it? Obviously.
[STRAINING.]
- [GROANING.]

[LING WHIMPERING.]
[UNI MOANS SOFTLY.]
[SIGHING.]
It's okay.
[UNI GROANING SOFTLY.]
- [LING SIGHING.]
- [GROANING FADES.]
Whoever did this is going to pay.
I'm gonna make them pay! Looks like a war zone.
LOPEZ: What do we do? MITRA: It's private property.
Let's start arresting people.
This is Officer Mitra calling for backup.
What could have destroyed our equipment? We'll cover more ground if we split up.
Johnny, whoa, whoa, whoa! Johnny, what do you think you're doing? - She's dead.
- Who's dead? - Wh-what happened? - The unicorn.
They killed her.
Who did? Them.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Wait a minute.
- Hang on.
- Let go! Johnny! Johnny? Johnny? JOHNNY: Come in.
- Yeah, you want to talk? - No.
- You sure? - Yep.
Okay.
Well, just remember that the hardest battle that you'll ever have to fight is between who you are now and who you want to become.
You sound like a case worker.
Yeah.
I read it in their booklet.
I also kind of liked, uh, "You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start from where you are and change the ending.
" Too cheesy? A little.
All right, well, listen, if, uh if you need anything, uh, I'm always just down at the end of the hallway.
Thanks.
Okay.
Johnny! I'm sorry, Ling.
We couldn't save her.
[LING WHIMPERS.]
So does that mean she's ABIONA: Extinct.
Forever? But I don't want her to be extinct.
Then remember this feeling.
What you're feeling right now.
And promise you'll do whatever it takes to never let it happen to another living creature.
- I promise.
- [LING SIGHS.]
I promise.
Promise.
[SIGHS.]
JULIA: What is it, Ling? There's someone coming.
Two more.
We're trapped.
We might be, but Ling isn't.
Quickly, climb up out of here and hide.
[LING TRILLS, WHINES.]
We'll figure something out.
Don't worry, go.
Go! [WHIMPERING.]
I think Ling wants to stay with its friends.
What are we gonna do now, Julia? - JULIA: Okay, everybody just trust me.
- Shh.
You hear that? - TABBY: This is gonna work.
- JULIA: It has to.
Sounds like children.
This way.
Seen this before.
Do any of you know what this is? Johnny! Get ahold of yourself.
Police are down there.
So what? So, if they blame you for what's happening here, they could take you away.
- Okay, whatever.
- Look, look, I cannot lose you too.
Now, I'm sorry I've been a little cold with you lately, but it's only because I'm I'm afraid of losing you.
All of you.
What? It's a bit cheesy.
It may well be, but I mean it.
I love you too, Mr.
Leopold.
Hey, hey.
Where are you going? I'm changing the ending.
[ENERGY PULSING.]
[SPARKING.]
Well, that sounds familiar.
You all stay here.
We'll be right back.
It doesn't make sense.
What could have done this? [ENERGY PULSING.]
There's that sound again.
MITRA: Hewes! There you are.
You know, it's illegal to fly drones over other people's property.
[DEVICE BEEPS.]
[ENERGY PULSING.]
What drones? Where did they go? - Boo! - [JOHNNY GASPS.]
[LAUGHS.]
Ah, that was a good one! Turns out Uni left us a little gift.
Thank you, Uni.
[LING SIGHS.]
Thank you, indeed.
[CHUCKLES.]
Who was that woman? Whoever she is, we need to find out how much she knows.
[TRILLS SOFTLY.]
We'll follow you back to the station.
Have us a nice, long chat.
MR.
LEOPOLD: Let's go home, huh? Yeah, gotta get some rest.
We've got a lot more Endlings to save.
And maybe some Earth animals as well.
- So, you're staying? - For good? I've spent my life trying to save animals and failing.
You all might be my best chance to Change the ending? Exactly.
It's not gonna be easy with Cruella hanging around.
No, but if we don't fight back, then who will? [LING SIGHING.]
Come on.
