Gen V (2023) s01e01 Episode Script

God U.


Ladies and gents, Supes and civvies,
rip up the history books,
'cause in New York this morning,
Godolkin University all-star A-Train
was just drafted into La Siete.
Which of course makes the speedster
the first African American on
the world's premier super team.
And so we're thrilled
to welcome A-Train to The Seven,
which proves what we have
been saying for a long time:
We live in a post-racism world.
Oh, my gosh. All praise be to God first.
Yeah, I just I-I just
want to remain humble
First Black man in The Seven.
Hey, girls! Come look at this.
- No, thanks, Daddy.
- No, thanks, Daddy.
This is history.
- Don't smile.
- I'm not.
- You have to do it like Kendall.
He goes clubbing with Jake Paul
and Scott Disick.
- I will take whatever I can get.
[ANNABETH] Use the 1977 filter.
[MARIE] No, I'm using Lord
Kelvin. That's the good one.
A-Train's the most driven kid
I've taught since Queen Maeve.
- Stop!
- That's the best one! [GIGGLING]
- Delete it, Marie!
Delete it.
What's the matter?
Um I'll be r

And you, let me get you some Pepto.
Mm-mm. Really, it's fine.
I'll always protect you.

[GASPS] Oh, my God!
[VANESSA] Wow. Guess I'm just surprised.
But I can go, right?
I mean, it's a full ride.
- And I'm 18.
- Congratulations.
Wouldn't be surprised if you ended up
protecting a city one day.
I think you meant to say "first
Black woman in The Seven".
Well, I stand corrected.
Look, Marie, um
Most kids around here
with a history like yours,
they don't get adopted.
So they get sent to the
Vought Adult Facility in Elmira.
- I know.
- I don't think you do.
That place, it-it's not like here.
You would be locked up.
But a-a God U graduate?
Um, you could
wipe all that clean and start fresh.
So don't fuck it up.
Don't fuck it up.
I'm never coming back.
I'm super focused.

Yeah, if you want
Professor Brink's autograph,
- you got to buy his book.
- Oh.
No, that's not why I'm
There's clearly been a mistake.
I-I signed up for Brink's
Freshmen Intro to Crimefighting,
but it's not on my schedule.
- What's your name?
- Moreau.
Marie Moreau.
Oh, yeah, I see the problem.
You were rejected.
What do you mean?
I-I, like, quadruple-checked the forms.
Yeah, we just don't have space
for everyone.
No, but I have to take Intro.
Everyone who majors
in crimefighting takes Intro.
Look, most freshmen show up,
they think
they'll major in crimefighting,
crush their combat and forensics classes
and score a city contract,
but they won't.
I mean, you're competing with kids
who have cleared homicide cases,
who have over a million followers.
you don't even have an Insta.
Now, I kind of got to get back to this.
- Can I talk to Professor Brink about this?
- No.
I made the call. I'm his T.A.
Hold on. This was your decision?
- Who are you to reject me?
- His T.A.
- Jordan!
What the fuck?
[BRINK] [LAUGHS] Goddamn,
that's the fastest draw I've ever seen.
Uh, gonna need to buy me
a new shirt, Professor.
hey, sorry, champ.
- So, what do we got?
- Um
Ashley Barrett asked you
to speak at the Vought retreat
- in Sun Valley.
- Mm, hard pass.
Good Morning America wants
to interview you about
"how Brink's technique
with super kids can help with your kid".
Tell 'em to read my book.
[MARIE] I've read your book.
- I've read all of your books.
- I've already handled this, sir.
Sir, she
I mean, he
rejected me from your Intro class.
But they're dead wrong.
They don't know me.
That so?
[MARIE] It's like you always say:
"It's not about the talent.
It's about the drive".
And that's me.
I could go all the way. I just
I just need the chance.
Performing Arts is a fine program.
You could be on Dancing with the Stars.
- What's going on?!
He's tweaking on meth. [PANTING]
He's on the north lawn.
- We need backup.
- Stat.
Let's just calm down.
I'm not going back to the fucking Woods!
- [GUARD] I got him!
Hey, hey, who is that guy?!
Please don't-don't leave me in here.
Please, please!
[WAILING] Plea !
Godolkin is a safe space
for you to thrive.
So then security just
dragged the kid off?
So fucking crazy.
And you didn't film it.
Kind of had other stuff on my mind.
Yeah, but you could've got
a million likes.
I wish I got attacked.
Oh, come on. They live on our floor.
Hey, performing arts
won't be so bad. Just
try and make friends
like a normal human.
So, my guys at Innovative
are sending me out
for this limited series on Vought Plus.
It's an elevated superhero thing.
Really a meditation on grief
told through 70 years of sitcoms.
And Zach Braff is directing.
- We're friends, so fingers crossed.
Damn. My manager only sends me
out on broadcast, but
Sorry, you're Justine, right?
- [CHUCKLES] Yeah.
- Okay, so I loved you
in Pretty/Deadly and Babysitter School.
Um, so I'm Emma.
That's-that's Marie.
That's so sweet.
Thank you.
I've seen you in something.
I did do a small reoccurring
in Chicago Fire.
Burn victim.
No. Wait.
You're Little Cricket.
Oh, my God.
You are so funny.
- Holy shit. No, that's right. Um
- Fun Sized with Little Cricket.
- Right?
I'm a huge fan.
Your channel's the fucking bomb.
And where have I seen you?
Uh, right here.
I got to go.
[EMMA] I'll-I'll see you guys around.
What's wrong?
No offense,
but this shit is very, very not me.
Okay, well, this shit
is 90% of being a hero.
Marie, only five kids a year
score a city contract.
The rest of us
sing and dance and
sell merch for Vought.
But we're superheroes.
That's really what you want?
I can't fight bad guys when I'm
the size of a pickle, so yeah.
I mean, I'm also hoping for a three-way.
[BRINK] You remember when we first met?
Chapter nine of your book.
I had to sit on a folding chair
in your folks' living room
- 'cause you kept burning holes in the furniture.
Shy little nothing
that could barely make eye contact.
You remember what I told you?
- You said that I'd be bigger than Homelander.
- Did I?
Hafnium carbide alloy.
Won't melt no matter how hot you burn.
No more showing your balls to America.
I mean, this thing is
low eight figures, easy.
No one's actually gonna pay for this.
New York already has.
They're building it as we speak.
Would you rather take
Maeve's old apartment
or Starlight's?
Now, it's gonna take the lawyers a
couple months to paper the deal,
but you, my boy, are going to The Seven.
No draft, no nothin'.
It's done.
We did it.
- Huh? [LAUGHS]
I'm great.
You lost?
I got it.
Those were some sweet moves
last night. [WHOOSHING SOUND]
I was coming up with
your superhero name.
You want to hear it?
Bloody Marie.
- That's terrible.
- Yeah, it is.
Well, um
that skinny kid,
did you You seen him before?
The way they dragged him off
was just fucked, right?
He was out of control.
- Okay, Coagula.
- Even worse.
- I'll k I'll keep workshopping.
I'll show you what I come up with?
A few of us are going on a
field trip.
Off campus.
Golden Boy, myself,
a few others. You should come.
[STAMMERS] Uh, me?
- Yeah.
- Out with you guys?
I mean, that's
how socializing works, right?
We'd be breaking curfew.
If we get caught.
We're not gonna get caught.
for the invite, uh, but no.
I can't afford the trouble.
Crimefighting Building at 10:00
if you change your mind.
[EMMA] Okay, this is me changing
your fucking mind right now.
You have a chance
to go party with Golden Boy
and you aren't sure?
Are you insane?
I think he has a girlfriend, right?
Yes, and she's hot!
Oh, my God! You're
gonna have a three-way.
You are literally living my dream.
Then you go.
I wasn't invited.
Marie, this is a huge
opportunity for you.
And, much more importantly, for me.
Because if you get in good
with those guys,
- that means I will.
- Emma.
You don't understand the
world-ending trouble I'll be in
if I'm busted.
My dad is
really strict.
The point is,
I can't fuck up.
I'm gonna be jerking off
about this the whole night,
so if you don't go, just
be prepared for that experience.
And I'm loud as fuck.
I don't
have anything to wear.
Please borrow whatever you want
from my closet.
[GASPS] Okay.
You need to load up your legs
with lube to get into these.
I'll help you get out of them tonight.
- How am I supposed to pee?
- Oh, you don't.
Like, literally never.

Oh! Told you.
This is Marie.
She's the one that I was telling
you guys about.

Let me guess.
You were six years old
in a Maeve costume,
just dreaming about making The Seven.
Now I do.
But no.
I didn't even know I had
powers until I was 12.
My parents gave me V as a baby.
But it didn't hit till puberty.
Oh, they must've been excited.
It's still the only thing
my dad talks about.
Brags about it to all the guys
at his pickup games.
I'm sorry. Uh
I'm lying.
M-My parents died.
I don't know why I do that.
My brother passed away, too.
I'm sorry.
That's, uh, why I'm here.
At this school.
For my sister.
I want to
prove to her that I'm not
Can I give you some advice?
That you're not at all
asking for? [CHUCKLES]
Being a hero is, uh
It's not what you think.
You know, if you're gonna do this,
make sure you do it for you.
- Oh, I can't believe it.
- Little Cricket.
I used to jerk off to you when I was 14.
That's sweet.
Mm. [GRUNTS] Oh.
- Hey, can we try something?
I don't want you to think I'm weird.
You're not weird.
Would you, uh
get little? [EXHALES]
Well, that wouldn't really work,
'cause, like
Yeah, obviously not that.

- Oh, my God. What the hell happened?
Uh, I think I hit an artery, dude!
Aw, fuck! Some fuck bumped into me!
I think she's gonna die, man.
She's bleeding out.
- We need to call 911!
- They won't get here in time.
We need to go. We need to get the fuck
- out of here.
- We need to get the fuck out of here now.
We need to get the fuck out of here now.
Come on.
[MAN] She's fucking bleeding out, bro.
[WOMAN] Why don't you help her?!

[EXHALES] She's alive.
She's alive. [INHALES DEEPLY]
- [MAN] Wow!
- [WOMAN] You saved her.
[MAN 2] You saved her!
- You saved her!
- [MAN 3] Are you a Supe?
[MAN 4] What is this? This is insane.
[FEMALE VOICE] Last night
at Skyscraper Club,
this lady fell bleeding.
This woman appears.
She saved the girl's life.
Okay, sure, you're the hero,
but I'm the one who made you go,
so in a very real way, I'm the hero.
Sorry for all the
blood on your clothes.
Oh, God, worth it. [GRUNTS]
Wait, so what did Golden Boy smell like?
- Like cookies, right?
Like cookies and hope?
Marie, right?
Professor Brink's office called.
He wants to see you.
You mean now?
And just me?
I don't know.
Also, I'm not your assistant.
Get a fucking phone.
Dude! He's seen Instagram.
You're in his class for sure.
who will accept you as the unique,
culturally rich change agent
that you are.
Ah, Marie Moreau.
You saved that girl's life.
Good for you.
Thank you, sir.
You know, kid, I've dedicated my life
to studying superheroes.
Three masters, countless
hours of research.
I think it's safe to say that
I know more about Supes
than just about any soul alive.
And they are something.
But there's one fella
that's got 'em all beat.
Fred McCallister of Scarborough, U.K.
Who's that?
Just a guy.
Some powerless schmuck. [CHUCKLES]
See, his old dog Arnold
jumped into the ocean,
and he started to go under.
So, Fred, he hopped into the drink
and he managed to save his old mutt,
but he drowned in the process.
And, see, that is what most superheroes,
even the big ones, they just don't get.
That being a hero, a real hero,
is not about glory.
It's about sacrifice.
You understand that?
I think so, sir.
And I can't tell you how sorry
I am to tell you this, but
you're being expelled.
- What?
- See, Golden Boy,
Andre, Jordan, they're
going all the way.
They could save thousands of people.
But not if TMZ finds out
that they almost let
a woman bleed to death
because they were high.
Somebody's got to take that hit.
You get that.
Look, you saved that woman.
But, you know,
you kind of slit her throat
accidentally first.
And that's grounds for removal.
Wait. Just wait.
I-I didn't. I
You you can't kick me out.
Oh, I'm so sorry. I really am.
I And I like you,
for what it's worth.
No, you don't understand.
I can't go back.
They're gonna send me
to this adult facility that
Oh, you're a resourceful girl.
You'll figure something out.
I think you're wasting
your time here at G.U.
Those blood powers of yours,
they're a nonstarter in Middle America.
There's no four-quadrant appeal there.
You're wrong.
Look, honey, you get
to save your friends.
Just like that guy in the U.K.
I mean, that is more hero
than most Supes ever manage.
And that's something.
What if I say no?
you're an orphan
who murdered her parents, kiddo.
I'm afraid you don't got much choice.
[EMMA] What'd he say?
Why did you make me go out?
- I knew I shouldn't have gone.
- Whoa, what happened?
I didn't ask for this. For you.
Just leave me alone.
[BOY] [ECHOING] Luke, where are you?
- Luke.
[LUKE] Sam?
[ECHOING] Luke, it's not a dream.
It's real.
[WHISPERS] Please help me.
You killed them. [SHUDDERS]
[MARIE] Annabeth, please.
No, stay away from me.
You're a monster. [INHALES SHARPLY]

I'm not a monster.
[JORDAN] Hey, man.
How you feel? 'Cause
I'm sweating cocaine.
Do you know?
What Brink's doing to protect you?
What are you talking about?
Oh, shit.
I had to.
I-I didn't see anything.
You don't understand
what Brink did, okay?
You don't know about The Woods.
Okay, please, he-he fell asleep
with a Camel lit in his mouth
and he burned himself.
For sure.
Our secret.
[SHUDDERS] Why did you
have to come, Marie?
- [JORDAN] Hey, what the fuck?
- [LUKE] Marie!
Uh, Luke, what's, uh
What's going on? Maybe
Maybe put your dick away?
Not until you chill out.
You're in on it, too.
Luke, what the fuck is going on?
Go! Now!
[JORDAN] Luke.
Luke, it's gonna be okay.
- Calm down.
[ANDRE] Can we do this later?
I'm still drunk from last night.
No, it's perfect. Just-just take a sip,
say, "Turbo Rush cures hangovers".
I wouldn't pour this on my dick
if it cured cancer.
- Marie?
Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
- Hey, stop! What?
[MARIE] He killed Brink!
The fuck? No, bullshit!
He fucking killed him!
Hey, hey, take it easy.
Just-just-just take it easy.
Hey, no, no.
Fuck everyone else.
It's just me and you.
You know I love you.
- It wasn't supposed to happen like this.
- Hey.
- I'm sorry.
- It's okay.
It's okay.
[CRIES] I love you.
I love you, too.
I'm so sorry.
It's okay. It's okay.
[ANDRE] Luke, come on.
I'm so sorry.

Good evening, students and patriots.
Let me personally assure you
that the terrible news
coming out of
Godolkin University this evening
is in no way reflective
of the institution as a whole.
Golden Boy's death
was an isolated incident
involving a chronic drug user
suffering a full psychotic break.
Remember that Vought News
has selected Godolkin
as the Safest Campus in America
seven years running,
and the faculty prides itself
on creating a safe space
for every hero to thrive.
Despite tonight's incident,
here's a look
at what students can expect
from this esteemed institution
in this upcoming semester.
If you're watching this,
guess things got fucked.
I'm sorry.
- [SHETTY] You could be
the first top-ranked freshman
in history.
For what?
For fighting Golden Boy.

You guys are heroes.
Currently, we're testing
"the Guardians of Godolkin".
Even when I'm saying it now,
it feels like it's too many
syllables, so we'll see.
What about Jordan Li?
[ASHLEY] We lead with
Andre and this Marie chick.
Figure out the rest later. Is
The Woods part of what happened?
[ANDRE] But I found something.
Don't say another
fucking word about this.
- [ANDRE] Remember, no tiny action hero shit.
Got it.
Get it, got it, good.
Sweet Jesus.
[CATE] I don't know why Luke did it.
We are in over our heads.

- In the real world,
everybody uses everyone.
[MARIE] This is fucking crazy.
- Totes.
- [MAN] It's just a matter of time
before they find out about
everything you're doing.
We have to stop 'em.
I did rip a person in half.
In my defense, he was
a puppet at the time, so
