Haven s05e24 Episode Script

The Widening Gyre

Previously on Haven Stop! I will kill you! - Wake up Wake up, damn it.
He got a message to us.
- Croatoan is coming for Audrey.
This is where we're making our stand.
- I've lost so much to the Troubles.
My sister.
My daughter.
I'm not gonna let anything else get taken from me again.
- If we can't build a new Barn, we can't defeat Croatoan.
I have to get these things to do something.
- Why have you brought me here? - Howard.
Can you use this to build a new Barn? - The Aether core has been cracked.
Stability is compromised.
- Did it damage you? - Yes.
Who did this to Howard? Duke.
Croatoan must be controlling him somehow.
Duke, why are you doing this? - I am doing what my family was created to do.
- Duke, please, no.
- I don't want to stop.
- Duke, let me go.
- And I am finally taking orders from the person that I was always meant to.
- Is anybody out there? Please.
Let me out! - Hello, Dove.
You hungry? You know, I gave you that nickname.
Dove.
Not because you were peaceful.
Hardly.
No, I gave it to you because I saw that you could soar.
- Croatoan.
- Not Dad? All right.
But clearly we have a lot of catching up to do.
We covered the whole waterfront.
No sign of her.
Damn it.
Dwight, what happened? - McHugh and I went by Hanlon's house.
Hoping we could use his Trouble to find Audrey, but Duke got to him first.
- That makes four Troubled people that Duke murdered.
All last night.
He's got to be collecting Troubles for Croatoan.
- Is that why you got my guys pulling Troubled people off the street? To keep them safe from Duke? Stashing them here? Or are you using them as bait? - Both.
Your guys know the plan and they're on board.
We catch Duke, we can force him to tell us where Croatoan's hiding Audrey.
I know what you're thinking, but I'm not doing this just because it's Audrey.
- I'm good with this.
We need her.
She's our only hope to cure the Troubles.
Duke.
Get him! - Get his arms.
- Hold on.
Don't get too close.
- Ah! - : Everyone, stand back.
Don't shoot.
Duke, Duke, stop! Ah! Duke please stop.
- Nathan? - McHugh.
- Hold him down.
- Whatever you're gonna do, do it now! - Hell of a plan, Nathan.
But it actually worked.
Now, what do we do to keep him under control? - Chain him up.
- Hang on, Ted.
We're gonna get you help.
- Okay.
- What's gonna stop Duke from using Hailie's Trouble to phase through them? - 'Cause they're made from an old Trouble, by a prison guard who wanted to stop Hailie's great-grandfather from escaping.
He couldn't phase through them.
Duke won't be able to, either.
Now we just got to get him to talk.
- You look nervous.
So unlike you.
- Let me go.
- Are you thirsty? - Where is Duke? What have you done with him? - I could get you some coffee.
You like coffee.
Even when you were a little girl.
You were adorable.
You loved coffee.
You loved music.
You loved dogs.
So many of the same things-- - Shut up.
Shut up.
- Why? Don't you want to know? We have all those things back home.
- What home? - Ours.
Yours and mine.
It has similarities to this world, but it is far more advanced now.
Except for a few warts, it's wonderful.
I'm going back there, taking you with me.
You'll be much happier there.
- You don't know anything about me.
- That's not true, Dove.
This room, it's just like the room you grew up in.
I love it.
- You mean Mara's room.
Is that what this is about? You want your daughter back? Well, you can't have her.
Mara is dead.
- Mara is dead.
I know.
But you're still my daughter.
And yes I want you back.
- I just need to know that Dave's death counted for something.
That he didn't die in vain.
This new Barn, when it cures the Troubles, will it stop Croatoan? - Yes.
The Aether core will act as a power source, drawing like to like.
It'll pull out all the Aether, everything from the Void, including Croatoan, and send it back.
- What's your role in all this? - My function is similar to, um Think of it like a ship, and I am its captain.
I tell all the pieces how to work together, what to do and when to do it.
- So, what's next? What else do we need to complete the new Barn? - Once the Aether core is repaired, you will have all the materials you need.
But, uh, I can't operate it.
Not anymore.
- What? - Back in the police station, when I attempted to create the Barn with the damaged Aether core, I was compromised.
I can no longer serve as the Barn's controller.
- Chains seem to be working as advertised.
- And Laverne's keeping an eye on him, too.
- Good.
So, you're just gonna go in there and talk to him? I mean, what do you even say to that? - That is still Duke.
He's still in there.
- Why? Because his eyes changed back? How can you be sure? - You saw what happened when he had me by the throat.
He could've killed me.
He recognized me.
Hesitated.
That's the real Duke.
That's who I'm gonna talk to.
- I've heard this song before, Nathan.
- And I was right before.
Back in my father's cabin, Duke bought me time to try and draw Audrey out of Mara.
And it worked.
He deserves the same chance she had.
- Okay.
But who knows what Croatoan did to him? The Duke we knew I'm afraid we lost him forever.
- Let's find out.
- You should eat this.
You love it.
- I am not your daughter.
I will never be your daughter.
- Family's not a choice.
- How can you talk about family like it means anything to you? You kill your family.
You murdered Charlotte.
Your wife.
My mother.
- I loved your mother.
She wasn't destroyed by me.
She was contaminated by weak minds.
When she turned against me broke my heart.
Then, once she started searching for a cure for the Troubles that could've been disastrous for both of us.
I couldn't let that happen.
So, I had to make a choice.
A very difficult choice.
- No.
You killed James, my son.
- I had to.
That's how much I love you.
If I hadn't killed him, Lucy would have, and then all of Mara's work, your work, would've been undone.
Worse than that, the Barn would've sent you home, and I would've lost you forever.
- Do you think that's an excuse? - Excuses are for people who regret what they've done.
I don't, because everything I did, I did for you.
You're everything to me.
I need you to understand that.
Do you? - I want some coffee.
- I'll get it.
Black.
- See? I knew that.
- So, who am I talking to right now? Duke? - Do I not look like Duke Crocker? - The one I grew up with? - Now, why would you say that? - Your eyes.
They've gone back to normal.
So, whatever Croatoan did to you, it's wearing off.
- Boo.
Nothing is wearing off.
This is what I am.
I am the person who took Audrey Parker.
- No.
You are the guy who didn't just kill me when he had the chance.
Because you remembered who you really are.
You remember Audrey, too? - I do.
Mmm - I know how much you really care about her.
How much she means to you.
- Shouldn't you be more concerned with how she feels about me? We both know that sometimes Audrey likes the bad boys.
And now that I have found my true self, well we may go all the way this time.
- Well, I'm glad you brought that up.
What happened between you two in Colorado it meant something.
I know it did for her.
I'm sure it did for you, too.
I want you to remember that.
What that felt like.
Remember that moment.
Remember how much Audrey means to you because, right now, she needs you.
Please.
Tell me where she is.
- You are pathetic.
Did you really think that reminding me of kissing that dead fish would change anything? This isn't some magical spell that you can break with the power of love.
This is what I am.
- I don't believe that.
- It doesn't matter what you believe.
You've already lost.
She's gone.
- We'll find her.
- Good luck.
Croatoan was hiding inside of Dave.
You remember Dave.
Old and bald and knew every hidden corner of Haven.
This is a disaster.
Everything we've done, all our efforts undone by a stupid artificial intelligence that can't remember what it was programmed to do? - By that logic, you are now insulting a malfunctioning-- - Oh, shut up.
Why can't you be more helpful? You were always full of advice when it came to getting Mara's incarnations back into that prison.
- That was by design.
My mission was to ensure that the Barn performed precisely as it was supposed to.
Everything I did was in service of that primary function.
- So then, why can't we just give you a new primary function? - I'm not just a program you can simply rewrite and reboot.
I was once a man.
- What? - By your calendar, it was several centuries ago.
I lived in the same world as Charlotte, Mara, and her father.
After Mara created the Troubles I was the one that captured her.
Brought her to justice.
- And you helped construct her punishment.
Her prison.
- By design, it required a dedicated warden, one that deeply felt the need for her punishment.
When I tracked Mara here I saw what she had done to those people.
It was a a young boy.
The Trouble Mara gave him was intolerable.
His life unlivable.
I had to end his suffering.
I had to I couldn't let that happen to my family.
- So, you sacrificed yourself to protect your loved ones.
Your home.
- As I said, that was centuries ago.
The importance of what I was doing was clear because it was personal.
But after what happened in the police station, after I was compromised, I I can't remember them anymore.
- Without that personal connection you can't operate the new Barn.
- No.
- That, uh that couldn't have been easy.
You okay? - No.
But it was worth it.
What Duke said about Croatoan knowing all of Haven's secrets because he was part of Dave.
We should send someone to talk to Vince.
See if he knows where his brother would stash a prisoner.
- "Someone" meaning not you? - Duke is still in there.
I know it.
I just need to keep pushing.
- I’ll go.
McHugh's on his way in.
He can back you up.
- Dwight, I know you think that Duke's a lost cause-- - Hey, if anyone can get through to him, it's you.
You've known each other your whole lives, maybe that's why he didn't kill you.
And reminding us about Dave, maybe that's Duke's way of helping us out without tipping Croatoan off.
What you're doing I think it's working.
- Hey.
What needs doing? - Keep an eye on things in there.
Nathan's making progress but-- - If things go south, want me to take care of Crocker? - Ah, well No.
No, Nathan's right.
Duke's still in there.
Hasn't always gotten along with The Guard, but he's one of us.
- No man left behind? - Yeah.
Help Nathan out any way you can, okay? Here we go.
- You said the Troubles were Mara's work? - Yes.
Your work.
Really following in your father's footsteps.
I hope it's not too hot.
Oh, Audrey I don't want to hurt you.
You're my daughter.
And even if I did, poison? Not my style.
Yum, yum.
- How could you call the Troubles "work"? - I understand why they frighten you.
It's 'cause you're not seeing them clearly.
You're not seeing their full potential, what they can accomplish.
What you're seeing is the risks, the damage.
Doesn't have to be that way.
- No it doesn't.
Ow! No, please don't.
- I need to teach you a lesson, but not what you think.
Let's see what we have here.
Snapped clean through.
Must hurt.
But you've always been tough.
Luckily for you, your father knows what he's doing.
There you are.
As good as new.
- How did you do that? - I used the Troubles.
- You can control the Troubles that you take from people? You can use them? - Yes.
- And now Duke is out there harvesting more for you, isn't he? - Just the ones I need for my protection.
I survived in the Void, filled with Aether, for centuries.
- You learned to master the Troubles.
- I wish you'd stop calling them the Troubles.
They're gifts, and in the right hands My hands They can accomplish anything.
Today wasn't the first time you've been my patient.
When you were little girl, I used Aether to save your life.
- What? How? - I think it's time you heard my side of the story.
The one your mother never wanted you to hear.
Come back soon.
- How's it going? - Duke's in there, but it's slow.
- Maybe it's time we try a different course of action? That chain you found got me thinking.
Some Guard buddies of mine have old Troubles that can make Duke talk.
Use an old Trouble to torture him? - I've done a lot of damage by picking up the enemy's weapon.
- I'll do you one better.
- Let's hear it.
- What if we use an old Trouble to bring the real Duke back? - That's good.
And if it works we'll have a double agent embedded right by Croatoan's side.
- Go grab the census of Troubles we've been putting together.
It's guarded.
Tell them I sent you.
If there is one that can bring Duke back, it's in there.
- I'm on it.
What are you gonna do? - Get back in there.
Find that part of Duke I saw and grab on.
Give us a fighting chance.
- We need some help finding Audrey.
Something Duke said made us think that she's being kept at one of Dave's old hideouts.
So, I figured - Deserted farmhouse.
County Route 19.
On the outskirts of town.
- That was quick.
- It's where we planned to hide out if things in Haven ever completely fell apart.
Guess we missed our chance.
You foolish old goat.
- Your brother was a good man.
- He gave his life for this town.
- And I'm sure you would've done the same thing.
- You said you aren't able to operate the new Barn, but what they did to you, turning you into the Barn's controller Could you do it to someone else? Could you do it to me? - Back home, the work I was doing was decades ahead of my contemporaries and light years ahead of what the minds here have dreamed up.
But, success breeds envy and eventually the others grew timid.
Afraid of progress.
- They weren't timid.
You were reckless.
Charlotte told me why you were banished.
You were experimenting with Aether from the Void.
- Bet she didn't tell you why.
When you were a little girl, you were sick.
You were very, very sick.
No cure.
No hope of survival.
You were our only child.
We were devastated.
I couldn't let you go.
So, I took a risk and it worked.
I introduced Aether into your immune system to modify your natural antibodies.
I used Aether to save your life.
- You put Aether into your own daughter? - Yes! But it was like bringing you back from the dead.
The others were willing to let you go, but not me.
Your mother, she gave birth to you.
But all that you are, the miracle that you've become, was all thanks to me.
I created you.
You're my daughter twice.
- We'll stay here as long as it takes because I know that you're still in there, Duke.
Croatoan's inside your head, controlling you.
You can force him out.
- You are wrong.
- Since when do you let someone tell you what to do? Don't let him control you.
This isn't you.
- Wrong again.
For the first time in my life, I know exactly who I am.
This is what I was always meant to be.
Please, Nathan help me.
- You're fighting him.
What can I do? How do I help? - I don't know.
- You can do this.
You can beat him, Duke.
I know you can.
Come on.
- What you did for me what you did for your daughter it was courageous.
- Had to.
Couldn't lose you.
- But it doesn't excuse what you've done to the people here.
Being in the Void for all of those years, maybe it it changed you.
It corrupted you.
- What I endured in the Void has only made me stronger.
All those years in that place, the only thing that kept me going was you.
I survived so I could return to you.
- But at what cost? The man who would do anything to save his daughter, he would hate the person you have become.
- No.
I'm the same man I was back then.
Because everything I did was for you.
To get you back.
- I told you.
I am not your daughter.
Mara is dead.
- Names don't matter.
You're still my daughter my creation.
And you're still special.
I made you that way.
Don't you feel that? - What you did with the Aether You said it made me special.
But, how? Why? You need me for something.
- All the facility and knowledge necessary to operate a new construct are contained within that controller crystal.
- But creating a new controller, someone to steer the ship, as you put it, that requires another sacrifice? - Yes.
I understand your commitment, but biologically, I don't even know if you would be fit to serve as the controller.
- You volunteered to serve as Mara's warden because you knew it was the only way to protect the ones you love, now that was your purpose.
- My dedication was paramount, but I can make no guarantees it will work the same for you.
- But I have to try.
I've dedicated my life to Haven.
Leading the Guard for all those years.
Using the Herald to cover up the Troubles.
All of it, because I love this town.
The people here, I've seen what they've been through.
Witnessed so much suffering.
Lost my I've lost so much because of the Troubles.
And now, I can play a part in ending them forever.
- The transformation process to controller will kill you.
Even if it doesn't succeed.
- So be it.
This is my purpose.
- You can control the Troubles.
You have Duke out there collecting the ones that you want.
So, why do you need me? - What I did with the Aether to save Mara changed her.
Gave her a special bond with the Aether.
She could do things with it nobody else could.
- But, can't you create Troubles on your own? - Yes, of course, but they pale in comparison to the kind of things she could do.
And now, that singular gift is yours.
- I will never create Troubles for you.
- Why not? You've did it before, when you touched Duke.
- People were dying.
I did what I had to do.
- Exactly.
Just like your father.
- But, why? Why do you want me to make Troubles? - Because I want to take my daughter back where she belongs.
I want to take you home.
If you would just embrace what you are, you could realize your full potential.
You do that, we can create the Troubles we need, then we could take back what's rightfully ours.
Reclaim our home from those who banished us.
Show them what Aether is truly capable of.
Show them the power that they were too cowardly to claim as their own.
And we'll do it together.
Father, daughter.
I'm going to rip open a tear in the Void and flood this world with Aether.
Welcome to our laboratory.
Oh, Audrey, join me.
You don't belong here.
You can't save these people.
You can't save Haven.
What I have planned has already begun.
- Tell me you got something.
- I've been looking through this Trouble census and you're right.
This thing's a gold mine.
You got psychic communication, there's a puppet master Trouble.
There's gotta be something that can break Croatoan's hold over Duke.
- Good work.
Now we just pick our best shot and - That's spooky.
He can't hear us in here, can he? - Yes! He can.
Thank you for bringing that, McHugh.
- How did he - Damn it.
I'll take that Trouble census now.
- What do you mean, "lt's begun"? What's happening out there? - Just what I expected.
People are playing their parts perfectly.
Nathan is doing everything he can to save Duke.
Duke is showing him just enough of his lost friend to keep hope alive.
Just enough for Nathan to keep Duke close.
And it will cost him.
- What is happening with Nathan? - This is your big moment.
Will you defend that with your life? Stay out of this.
- How did you get free? - Well, now, why go around something when you can just bust right through it? So easily fooled.
- Croatoan planned this wanted you to get caught.
You faked this all just so you could get your hands on this.
- That's right.
Exactly.
It's like a menu of Troubles.
Now we can just pick and choose our favorites and then drink them up.
We will be unstoppable.
It's ironic.
All of the times that you asked me to kill for you.
Look what I have become.
What you turned me into.
You wanted a Crocker? Well, here I am.
- Please, I am begging you.
Don't kill him.
- Why? - You don't need to.
If you are as powerful as you say, it doesn't matter.
Dad please.
- Remember this It isn't you.
- Please, don't kill him.
- Dove, Dove, Dove.
It's all right.
I've decided to let Nathan live.
- Why? - 'Cause that's what you wanted.
- It doesn't change anything.
I will never help you no matter what you do.
- Yes, you will.
And I never really expected just to talk you into helping me.
No, today was about finding out what you really care about Nathan.
I needed to find out how much you care about him and the others.
You'd do anything to protect him, wouldn't you? - If you hurt them, I swear to you - Hurt them? Haven't you been listening? I'm going to help them.
I'm gonna use all the powers I've gathered to give them what they truly want.
What you truly want for them.
- What? - I'm gonna make them happy.
- Is that what you did with Duke? - Well Duke spent his life searching for his identity.
Now, he's found it.
You're free to go.
- Why would you just let me walk out? - Well, I want you to be with them your friends.
I want you to see the gifts I offer, the happy lives that they can live and what you'll be ripping away from them if you still refuse to join me.
- Daddy? What's wrong, Daddy? Say something.
- Lizzie? But, you - Vince? Vince! Howard, I need your help finding Vince.
Vince! Vince? Oh, my God.
What have you done? - What I had to.
And I know exactly what we have to do to send Croatoan screaming back to hell.
