Free Rein (2017) s02e01 Episode Script

Rivals

1 [ZOE] Hey, guys.
I'm Zoe.
I'm 15.
And this time, you nailed it.
I'm totally the girl on the horse.
Don't beat yourself up.
We both can't be the fastest.
Couldn't agree more.
- Marcus! - Sorry! Can't hear you.
[ZOE] Yep, we stayed.
And I think I finally found my happy.
I've got the beach, Bright Fields, Marcus, Pony Squad, and most importantly I have Raven and he has me.
And anyone who thinks otherwise has got a fight on their hands.
[BECKY] There they are.
The hottest couple.
Happy, but for how long? Marcus is leaving in two days, three hours, 354, 353 Stop filming them.
It's creepy.
- You're right.
- Yeah.
[GASPS] I'll focus on Zoe.
There she is.
The yard's hottest rider.
Confident, but for how long? Junior Nationals are just in 58 days Zoe's already under enough pressure.
It's fine.
I just haven't really Thought about it? Bob's thought about it.
He told me he had a dream you won.
He spoke in the voice of Prince Charles.
[ZOE CHUCKLES] Thanks, but I don't know Have what it takes to stay calm in front of hundreds of people with your entire future at stake? - I was gonna say win - My advice for anxiety is deep breaths.
- But not too deep.
You might pass out.
- Becky! Get your horse out of Firefly's stable now.
Not again.
[ZOE] Okay, so Becky has a point.
Junior Nationals is intense, but I'm not worried.
Raven and I got this.
No matter what you're doin' No matter what you're playin' No matter what you're sayin' 'Cause we're doing it all the same No matter where you are Where you're coming from Put your hand on your heart Don't wait Yeah, you know that I, we, me, us We're doing it all the same No matter where you are Where you're coming from Put your hand on your heart Don't wait Yeah, you know that I, we, me, us We're doing it all the same [VOCALIZING] [MIA] Listen up! It's time for things to change around here.
Our stables rose from the ashes and beat Holloway at the County Cup.
Now we've got our sights on the Junior Nationals.
Which is why I've set up an exclusive with the local paper.
I want this yard spotless for the interview.
It's a new dawn at Bright Field.
Get on it.
- Susie, that means you, too.
- [GROANS] When you're done messaging, will you help? Of course.
Pin, stop what you're doing and re-groom Firefly.
- Uh, rude much, Mia? - [PIN] It's okay.
- No, it isn't.
If Mia wants - I said, it's fine.
Pin knows who's boss around here.
Unlike some people.
Your dad is the boss.
You're just bossy.
Darling, meet the new yard manager.
- Somewhere in here, there's an office.
- Maggie agreed to help out.
- I thought it might be fun.
- [BOTH] No way! Mom, just try not to embarrass me.
Okay? What? You don't want to hang out on the hay bales? I'm sorry.
I wanted to talk to you about working here, but - well, you haven't been around.
- You wanted me to train.
Yes.
Just didn't realize how much of that training would involve Marcus.
I come here to get away from mom chats.
[CHUCKLES] Okay.
Fair enough.
Just promise me you'll focus.
Going to Junior Nationals is a big chance for you.
No more drama.
No more horse thieves.
Am I hallucinating, or is Rosie wearing jodhpurs? [MAGGIE] She's just trying to fit in.
Rosie's given up a lot to be here for you.
We all have.
I know.
Don't worry.
I'll keep an eye on her.
I promise.
I'm here to ride.
Is this a joke? I just spent my entire life savings on these weird horse pants.
I'm deadly serious.
Frank turned off the Wi-Fi, didn't he? Yeah.
So unfair.
The County Cup, finally where it belongs.
Well, at least I can leave finally knowing the sink is fixed.
What's wrong? I just really wanted to prove to my dad that I could turn this place round.
- On my own.
- You don't need to prove anything.
Your dad loves you.
If anyone can turn Bright Fields around, it's you.
[SIGHS] A chance to put Bright Fields on the map and you're leaving.
Yeah.
It's weird for me, too.
- I don't think it's really hit me yet.
- I'm really pleased for you, Marcus.
No, seriously.
First island boy to get into the academy.
- I guess it's a pretty big deal.
- It's a huge deal.
[CHUCKLES] It's a massive achievement.
[LAUGHS] It's a properly positive news story for Bright Fields.
Uh, easy.
Grab your trophies and rosettes.
I've got a plan.
This isn't how we do things around here.
We muck out our own horses.
Even Mia.
- You don't understand.
- What is wrong, Pin? You haven't said two words to me in weeks.
My dad sold Raven illegally.
Until Elliot gets his money back, we're working for nothing.
- You want me to talk to my dad? - Stay out of it.
Please.
[RAVEN NICKERS] Hello, Raven.
I've heard all about you.
Hey! Hey! That's my horse.
Must've missed the name tag.
Raven is not safe, and he doesn't like strangers.
Don't tell me.
He's troubled and you're the only one who gets him.
- Yeah, actually.
- You must be Zoe.
- How do you know who I am? - Mia's told me all about you.
And your emotions.
Who are you? [ROSIE] Zoe! Come on, Raven.
Stay away from my horse! Picking up poop, living the dream.
Thank you, Mia.
I know, right? I feel sorry for whoever she picks for the Junior Nationals spot.
Who wants that kind of pressure? Not us.
I'd have to teach Bob to jump.
Bob doesn't jump.
He limbos.
[CHUCKLES] - Is that an optical illusion? - [BEN] Nope.
Rosie caught the pony bug.
Rosie, that's awesome.
The best thing about ponies is everything! What happens when you get on the horse? Let's get you on first.
Okay.
[EXHALES] Rosie! Breathe.
Ugh.
Not too deeply.
Okay.
Okay.
Foot in the stirrup.
One two - three.
- [PONY SNORTS] [GASPS] Too much horse.
No, no.
Way too much horse.
Gotta sanitize.
[BEN] So close.
Ew, ew, ew.
Come on, Rosie.
You can do this.
Germs are an everyday part of a pony girl's life.
Excuse me.
Do you know your way around here? Uh, absolutely.
This place is basically my life.
I'm a horsey kind of girl who loves hanging out at the stables.
- How can I help? - I'm to pick up the cup for cleaning.
Oh, that thing.
It's over here in the trophy case.
Now, make sure you keep this thing safe.
This cup means a lot to the people here.
Don't worry.
I'll take good care of it.
Hi.
- Want a hand? - Suit yourself.
- We're friends, right? - We've known each other a long time.
I'm leaving tomorrow.
Weird to think you'll all still be here.
We can't all come to the academy, can we? I hope things don't change too much.
I hope that people don't take advantage of me not being here.
Are you asking me to stay away from Zoe? Better if you did.
- She needs to train.
- This is all about training.
I'd feel better knowing I had your word.
I'm sure you would.
"My pony is psychic"? Hey, horse, ESP a message when I'm gonna start feeling "the love.
" Hey, where's the County Show Cup? I need to clean it.
I gave it to the cleaner.
That is a really big mug.
- She looked official.
- Who? - The cleaner! - Who wasn't a cleaner.
Callum just posted this.
"County Cup, back where it belongs"? Holloway stole our cup.
- Holloway? - The other stables on the island.
Our deadliest rivals.
We beat them at the show, now they're out for revenge.
Mia's interview is in less than an hour.
She needs that cup.
Oh.
Mia is gonna hate me forever.
She's the only good thing about these stables.
Apart from you guys.
Sorry.
I was trying to be a horse girl.
I messed up.
Hey, don't stress.
Mia will never know the cup is gone.
- We got this, right? - Pony Squad, assemble! - That's not a thing, Becky.
- Yet.
Where's Mia? She's with Marcus prepping for the interview.
Rosie, keep Mia away.
She cannot find out that cup is missing.
I'm a master of distraction.
I'll get the cup.
Holloway doesn't know me.
I can act like I'm trying to find somewhere to keep my horse.
You can't go on your own.
There is one other person they don't know.
Well, what do you say? Help me bust in? Or are you too busy running after Mia? - I've got stuff to do.
- Take a break to live a little.
All right.
Fine.
- I can't exactly clean a stolen cup.
- Let's do this.
This is so spy.
I'm 007 and you're Miss Moneypenny.
I'm so clearly 007 in this scenario.
Could you get the cup? Reporter's 20 minutes away.
Mia! Aren't you supposed to be practicing your speech? Me and Marcus are done.
We're ready.
You can never be too prepared.
What if they ask you about Sam or the horse thieves? - Don't think they would, would they? - You can't take any chances.
In L.
A.
, we basically all go to PR school.
I can pass on a few tips if you want.
- Where would I be without you? - [CHUCKLES] Stay here.
Don't let anyone in.
Good to have you back.
Just like old times.
Yeah, it's weird.
Feels like I never left.
- How are you getting on? - Good.
Almost done.
Then I can get out there, maybe go for a ride.
E-mails haven't been done either.
E-mails? - This is all Holloway? - Yep.
- They are so much bigger than us.
- Has to be, to contain all that evil.
This way.
[BECKY] Here we are.
Pony Squad.
On a top secret mission to retrieve the County Cup from Holloway.
Becky, are you live vlogging? Top secret missions are supposed to be a secret.
Yeah.
- They can't know we're coming.
- Good point.
Entrance is over there.
They practice from about 3:30 till 4:30.
Go around the back, no one will see you.
We'll let you know if anything happens.
.
bu using a top secret signal.
The call of the tuft duck.
- [BECKY COOS] - Or we'll call you.
[ZOE] Wow, look at them, they're so You're as good as they are.
You're better.
Come on.
[MIA] That brings me to our bid to win Nationals.
We will crush our opponents, Holloway.
We will take everything away from them.
We will destroy them.
Wow.
- Too strong? - You're trying to win a show, not the Third World War.
Look, you love these stinky stables, so speak from your heart.
Tell what makes Bright Fields so special.
Okay.
WELL, HOW ABOUT THIS: Ever since I was little, all I've ever wanted to do is share the magic of Bright Fields with the rest of the world.
That's great.
[CHUCKLES] Keep going.
And really lay it on thick.
I remember my first riding lesson.
I had this tiny Shetland called Gracie.
And she took off around the arena with me.
It was so scary.
But somehow, I managed to stay on.
And my father never understood why I kept wanting to come back here.
But I never looked back.
Bright Fields became my home.
That's great.
And that's why this cup is so important, a symbol of how far our stables have come.
Elliot we may have a problem.
[MARCUS] Ben.
Ben.
Ben! I need to get into the tack room.
You shall not pass.
- Why not? - Because of the reason.
What's going on? The yard's dead.
Where is everyone? - Where's the cup? - My lips are sealed.
Only thing getting past these lips is lunch.
- Ben.
- Zoe and Pin are rescuing the cup from Holloway's trophy case.
Zoe and Pin? [SIGHS] You broke me.
Rosie's gonna be so mad.
[PHONE RINGING] Is that Holloway? [ZOE] Wow.
How many cups does one stable need? They're clearly into winning.
Yeah, or cheating.
Whoa, whoa.
We need to cover that.
- Hey, that That's mine.
- Oh.
Yeah.
Reminds me of when I thought you were a horse thief.
Good times.
Careful, Zoe.
Don't mess this up.
[ZOE GASPS] [FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING] [CELL PHONE RINGING] - Pony Squad.
- [ROSIE] Where are you guys? I can't stall Mia much longer.
- And then - Gotta go.
After, I'll do my Nationals team announcement.
I'm the captain, obviously, and then there's Susie, Zoe, and replacing Marcus, our fourth team member will be Jade.
Wait.
What? She said "Jade.
" Did she say "Jade"? Welcome! You're one of us now.
Nationals is gonna be epic.
[CHUCKLES] - Bingo.
It's locked.
- Come here.
I may not be a horse thief, but I've been picking locks since before I was born.
Mm.
[ZOE CHUCKLES] This is crazy.
I don't even want this, except I I kind of do, but There's only two months to train.
Plenty of time, right? What if it isn't? Jecky, friends forever, but for how long? One of us made the team, one of us didn't.
You don't think this means anything about our friendship, do you? Not like you're gonna be training around the clock with the team, or going for ice cream with the team, or creating new secret hand-claps with the team.
Best news ever! Mission accomplished.
Let's get out of here.
- Holloway incoming! - Practice isn't over yet.
How did they know? - Take the cup back to Rosie.
- Pin, wait! [PIN] I'll keep them busy.
Hey! Over here! I guess you want your cup back.
[BOY] Hey! Hey, you! Stop! Get back here! Nice jump.
Um, I thought we could do a few photos first and then the interview.
- Could you get the cup? - The cup? The cup that's gonna show the world what Bright Fields are capable of.
Oh.
Oh, that cup.
- Funny thing - Rosie.
The cup isn't there.
[CHUCKLES] Where is it? Here! - Uh, what's going on? - Funny story.
I accidentally let Holloway walk away with the cup.
[MOUTHING] It's safe now.
Zoe, tell me you didn't just take that cup.
She totally did.
We had a plan and a signal, but somehow they knew we were there.
I found an e-mail from the equestrian board.
Holloway contested the county show win three weeks ago.
What? On what grounds? - [MAGGIE] Zoe didn't ride her round.
- I was rescuing Raven.
And Mia wasn't registered to compete.
- [SCOFFS] I was covering for Zoe.
- I know.
But the board found in Holloway's favor.
That cup is rightfully theirs.
- Uh-oh.
- Wait.
You mean, we're the thieves? - Oh, don't Wait - Wait.
What about the interview? - Marcus and the academy? - Forget it.
That reporter got the scoop of the century.
Everyone calm down.
There's no such thing as bad press.
There is.
She's gonna write about how we're thieves and cheats, and that Sam was the best of the bad bunch.
- Mia, I'm so sorry.
I thought - You don't think, Zoe.
That's the problem.
You just do, and the rest of us have to deal with the consequences.
- Where's Pin? - Not back yet.
- We should go look for him.
- Pin can look after himself.
- Excuse me? - Go look for him if you want.
I'll be sorting out the mess he's caused.
Well, that was, uh, messy.
Please don't judge these stables on the reckless actions of one very annoying American.
Listen, don't worry about that.
I'm taking the job.
- Seriously? - Just left the contract with your dad.
- I'm in.
- But Why would you want to be our trainer? We've lost all credibility.
For now maybe.
I think this place has got potential.
Raven definitely does.
And leave the emotional American to me.
I know exactly how to bring Zoe into line.
I used to do this, too.
[SCOFFS] Ruin everything? Be with Emerald when things seemed hopeless.
You put your whole life on hold so I could stay and train.
I keep saying I got this, but what if you made the wrong decision? We wouldn't have made the decision to let you stay if you didn't deserve to be here.
Just have to do the work.
Mia says I make decisions without thinking.
Am I impulsive? Oh, definitely.
But if you weren't, you wouldn't have found Raven or kept him.
You wouldn't have your bond.
Don't worry.
You and Raven got this.
Sorry if I made it seem like I didn't want you here.
[CHUCKLES] And I'm sorry I didn't embarrass you more today.
- I'll do better tomorrow, I promise.
- [CHUCKLES] Hey, Pin.
It's me.
Call me back.
I just wanna make sure you're okay.
[KNOCKING ON DOOR] - Hey.
- Hey.
[SIGHS] I am so sorry about today.
It was all my fault Hey.
No.
No.
None of that.
I am perfectly capable of messing everything up on my own, thank you.
[GROANS] You found your thing, Zoe.
I tried, but Horses are your world, not mine.
I know.
Your world is at a mall about 4000 miles that way.
[CHUCKLES] Maybe so, but I'm not in L.
A.
for the foreseeable future, so I'm gonna find my place on this island.
And when I do, it's gonna be epic.
I have no doubt.
- Thanks.
- [BOTH CHUCKLE] See ya.
"I'm fine.
" Okay, what does that mean? [SIGHS] [DOOR OPENS] Hello, Pin.
I'm Gaby.
Don't look so worried.
Things are really looking up for you.
Stable boy.
