The Only Me I Know

1 ["Belgrade" by Battle Tapes.]
Whoo! I believe, I believe there's a reason There's a breach in the hull Started going under, loot and plunder Cut 'em down, cut 'em down at the knees, yeah Cut 'em down to the bone Just a lesser evil, born unequal You show them where they belong Tear right through them, tear right through them all We pretend in the darkness We pretend the night won't steal our youth Singing me the sweet songs of seduction Let me be the fool, fool, fool Who will live and die for you We pretend in the darkness We pretend the night won't steal our youth Singing me the sweet songs of seduction Let me be the fool, fool, fool Who will live and die for you 1x06 - The Only Me I Know [planes whooshing.]
This gen:LOCK crap was supposed to help us.
Now we gotta fight it? Would now be a good time to try one of those opening lines? Okay, maybe not.
I know things look pretty messed up, - but I wanted to check in - How many of you are there? - I'm the only me I know.
- Only you, and the other mecha that talked like you with your moves.
Showed up out of nowhere, just like only you.
I promise you I'm gonna find out what's up.
- So, are we good? - Are we How am I supposed to know what we are - if I don't even know what you are? - Miranda If that thing that just attacked us is also you, then which one of you is my Chase? Both? Neither? Or did my Chase die four years ago? [sighs.]
- You okay? - The whole time.
What if he's been lying to us the whole time? You and I owe Dr.
Weller much.
The benefit of the doubt at the very least.
Able, location of Dr.
Weller.
[Able.]
Dr.
Weller is on the East Observation Deck.
- Where are they taking them? - Debrief, presumably.
Then wherever home is for them.
- [Leon.]
Hey, GL.
- Hm? We're gonna do a review, dissect your mission performance.
You're relentless.
What, do you want a party? Is that how the world works? You finish a mission, and someone hangs a banner with your names on it, throws a little confetti? Just be in North Common in an hour.
[sighs.]
[Dr.
Weller.]
You ever wonder why we're here? Only every day since New York.
I figured out why the Colonel made me that offer.
- Pardon? - To transfer back to the Vanguard, and why you started crunching on the new toys.
Both of you knew what this thing might be, and neither one of you told us what was up.
Better not to raise alarm until we knew for certain.
Better for who? - It's GL tech, isn't it? - Yes.
At its core, is likely one of our brains.
You're really gonna make me ask? Who's running on it, Doc?! There is a very good chance that it is you in there, Julian.
Another instance of you.
- Your nemesis.
- You said you couldn't make copies.
I said I wasn't making copies.
I never said I couldn't, or didn't.
We started backing you up the instant the gen:LOCK initiative began.
[music.]
As the first person identified as gen:LOCK compatible, you were designated one of the most valuable members of the Vanguard, Of the entire Polity, really.
When they detected your S and R beacon, you provided a much-needed glimmer of hope after such a terrible day.
You clung to life with ferocity.
And you took the deal.
Worked in secret while we got gen:LOCK up and running.
[music continues play.]
You learned how to run, and then it was time to learn how to walk.
At the beginning, we had precisely two of the brains.
Every time we uploaded you to one, we shunted a copy to the other.
You were ready for missions much earlier than anticipated.
Your successes were incredibly encouraging.
The Colonel's interest in gen:LOCK reached a fever pitch.
As did the Union's.
[slow, dramatic piano music.]
It went to hell.
They were waiting.
Threw everything they had into capturing you.
You disappeared.
We had your body.
We had your mind.
A copy of it, anyhow.
We restored your backup, made you whole again.
The practice of copying ended, and the gen:LOCK program continued.
You told me that mission was scrubbed.
That we'd had a malfunction and the system was offline for a couple of hours - before we could restore you.
- You lied.
Yes.
I lied.
[ominous music.]
[Able.]
All crews, defensive battle stations.
All crews, defensive battle stations.
This is not a drill.
What is that? - Karma.
- Chase, you have to know, I [dramatic music.]
[turrets whirring and clunking.]
Union Behemoth has dropped quantum cloak.
- Distance, two klicks.
- Scramble alert fighters.
Ground companies to follow plan Alpha.
Colonel, Union is broadcasting in the clear.
- They're including a Vanguard ident code.
- Continue deploying defenses.
Ma'am, the code is Lieutenant Chase's.
Start the channel.
[ominous music.]
[Nemesis.]
Colonel.
Hello.
G-Goodbye.
Who am I addressing? [Nemesis.]
[chuckles.]
Who would you like it to be? Oh, Chase.
What did they do to you? [Nemesis.]
Why am I still here? Why do I hear new voices in my head? Status of the Hammer system? Stage three test fire can be available - in approximately 10 minutes.
- Proceed.
You have to know we tried to find you.
[Nemesis.]
You lost your chance.
And now, there's no choice.
Kill the copy.
There is always a choice.
Whatever they've said to you, done to you [Nemesis.]
Kill the copy.
[Dr.
Weller.]
Julian, please return to us and I promise you I will do everything in my power to help you.
[Nemesis.]
You can't.
Fix me.
Want out.
The Union Julian, they cannot promise you a return to your body.
It will not work that way.
But maybe we can find an alternative.
[Nemesis.]
Want out.
Hello.
G-Goodbye.
[explosion.]
Chase! [dramatic music.]
[Chase.]
Oh, you want out? - I can help with that.
- Kill the copy! [grunting.]
[firing.]
[music.]
Doctor, what's happening? - Doctor? - Look! - Bozhe moi! - Into the pods, now! [Leon.]
As soon as we're up on the other side, hook right.
We gotta make it to zone three, fast as possible.
Get ready to run.
Miranda, you copy that? - Miranda? - Miranda! Yeah, let's go.
[Woman.]
Get down! Watch your head.
[whirring.]
[Yaz.]
Move! [war cry.]
[planes whooshing.]
[Valentina.]
Urra! [dramatic music.]
[heavy firing.]
[Valentina.]
Kazu, check your six! [Valentina.]
Kazu, let me join you! [Valentina.]
Kazu! [dramatic music.]
[both grunt.]
[metal clangs.]
[Yaz.]
Chase, we should try to fight him together! [Chase.]
What's stopping you? - No, I mean really together.
- Let's not do this now.
Intruder alert.
Exterior breaches on levels 20 through 25.
Security, repel the intruders.
Seal all blast doors! [music.]
[Able.]
All stations, Union troops have entered the base.
Repeat, Union troops have entered the base.
[static.]
Weller, we're breached! Their main contingent is headed your way.
We shouldn't be a burden much longer.
I'd like to request an extended use of one of your transports.
Understood.
Let us know when you're on the move.
gen:LOCK team, get your Holons back to your transport and prepare for download.
[Cammie.]
What? We're nowhere near uptime.
[Dr.
Weller.]
You're in danger.
Do you hear? [Yaz.]
Doctor, what's wrong? Now, Yasamin! There are enemies in the base.
Your bodies are in danger.
[music.]
- Chase, fall back! - He doesn't mean me.
- [Yaz.]
Chase! - My body can't run, Yaz.
[ominous music.]
[dramatic music.]
- Are the Holons secure? - We're loaded up.
- What the hell's happening? - No time! They're coming for you.
Get ready to run.
Kazu, that seems about your speed.
Take it.
Valentina, energy rifle there.
- Doctor? - Time to fly again, little bird.
Look after your teammates.
- Y-You're coming with us.
- I'll join you when I can.
Caliban, you do not leave their side.
Omega protocols apply.
Acknowledge? Are you fucking kidding me? You'll hear from me once you're away.
Look after each other till then.
Go! Go! Take that lift.
[firing.]
[dramatic music.]
[Weller.]
I recommend you back away from the lift now.
You won't be following them.
[Weller grunts.]
You're here for the gen:LOCK technology? You can't have my kids, but I have something new right here.
Take it, with my compliments.
[Yaz.]
No, no, no.
[grunting.]
[Valentina.]
Close enough.
We can cut over to the central lift.
- Cammie, how many? - Enough to fuck us.
[firing.]
[music.]
[Cammie.]
In here, in here! Come on, come on! What the hell just happened? I used MR to hide the door.
I didn't know if it would work on their system, but Oh no.
We'll thank them if we get through this.
Here we go! Behind us! [grunts.]
[Woman.]
Forward forces taking heavy losses.
Multiple security breaches throughout the base.
Ma'am, reports of an explosion from upper computer core.
- Able, Hammer status? - Working.
Please stand by.
[Migas.]
What are you doing back here? [Yaz.]
Migas, we need a lift to our transport.
You're all in danger if we stay.
Vamonos.
[engine whirring.]
[music.]
Thank you.
Can you fly it? [jets whoosh.]
For a Union pilot, you're not bad.
[firing.]
[dramatic music.]
[guns firing.]
[missile whooshing.]
[clank.]
[grunts.]
Hammer engineering reports ready to deploy.
Open it up.
Target that behemoth and fire when ready.
[heavy cannon firing.]
Yeah! [people cheering.]
[ominous music.]
[not audible.]
[somber piano music.]
No No! [grunts angrily.]
[missile explodes.]
[Chase.]
Anvil Ops, Chaser.
Come in.
Tempest, Chaser? [music.]
Please, come in.
[rumbling.]
Chase, we need you! [music.]
[music.]
