Hidden: Firstborn (2019) s01e08 Episode Script

Episode 8

My mother died when I was born.
Adrian tried to burn me out,
but I managed to get away.
He kept burning out his children.
To keep himself alive.
- What are you going to do?
- I'm going to find him.
He's not just anyone, you know.
He's a Hidden who doesn't exist,
yet he's still among us.
He's married to Ninni Ek's daughter.
But he's managed to pass as human.
- Until now.
- All I'm saying is, be careful.
He's your father.
The abilities that you have,
you've got from him.
There's one thing I don't understand.
If I'm his vaccine,
why is he trying to have me killed?
I don't know.
Eldh. She met him.
Emma? Emma!
Come on. Let's go.
Excuse me.
She just woke up. Blood pressure is
normal, good pupillary response.
Maria? Can you hear me?
You've been in a coma.
We're going to run some tests.
He's dead. My baby
Valium, 10 mg, stat.
- Adrian
- Maria, look at me.
- Where's Adrian?
- Everything will be fine.
- Where are you going?
- I'm going to call her husband.
We have to notify the police first.
They'll contact her family.
The phone number is in her file.
This shot will help calm you down.
Just relax. Everything will be fine.
She won't give up.
Was it really necessary?
- What?
- Abrahamsson.
Only time will tell.
It will take years to break in
someone new.
We have bigger problems than that.
Adrian Savin.
He burns out his own child,
and makes Hellemyr the scapegoat.
Who I've been instructed
to find at any cost.
- And?
- The order came from the Council.
Adrian's not even in
the Communion.
We knew where we stood
with the five clans.
But now the game has changed.
- What do you mean?
- The Council has been compromised.
External forces are pulling
the strings.
- At least we know who he is
- We know nothing.
- Adrian is working alone.
- Says who?
We have to go.
Be careful.
Don't worry.
I'll go over there tomorrow.
It's getting late.
Are you still there?
Listen, they're on the move.
I'll call you back.
- Hello?
- She's awake.
- Viveca?
- I'm at the hospital.
Maria just woke up.
- Adrian?
- I'm on my way.
Wait 15 minutes.
There's been an emergency.
Police! Halt!
Hands on your head!
Halt! I said, halt!
Halt! I said, halt!
- Show me your hands.
- Bang, bang.
We saw you leaving Abrahamsson's.
She was poisoned.
- You're a suspect
- Selma Demir.
Born in Sweden to Turkish parents
who fled after the military coup.
Top grades in high school.
Started law school
with brilliant results.
Ended abruptly to attend
the police academy.
Top of your class.
Four years as a beat cop,
and after two months
at Major Crimes,
you're already in the center
of the decade's most bizarre murders.
Not bad. Not bad at all.
What were you doing
at Abrahamsson's?
So sorry to hear she's ill.
Who are you?
Someone who believes in justice.
I want to help you find the person
who murdered the infant.
And the murder of your colleagues.
Tell me what you know.
It's getting late.
I have things to do.
If you want to know
who the murderer is,
just stop by my office tomorrow.
You know where it is.
- Someone who believes in justice?
- Just like you.
- What happened to you?
- I'm fine.
She woke up half an hour ago.
She was calling for you.
Thank you.
- Sorry?
- Her name was Emma.
She meant everything to me.
We were playing that day.
She helped me clean the windows.
The phone rang.
I was only gone for five minutes.
Then she was gone.
It was my fault.
You have to let it go.
- You have to forgive yourself.
- How? How can I?
You decide to live.
Live for yourself. And for her.
If you don't, you're both dead.
Go on. She needs you.
I'll be fine.
- Sweetheart!
- Adrian!
Can we have a moment alone?
He's dead. He's dead.
- Adrian, he was
- It's okay, sweetheart. I'm here.
The eyes. His eyes
They were completely white.
Adrian, what happened?
- I had no idea you were so strong.
- What?
You were never supposed
to wake up.
Hello! I'm looking for a
Did a woman with a head injury
come in earlier?
- Are you a relative?
- Yes.
What's her name?
I need to see some ID.
- Just tell me where she is.
- Jonas?
- How are you?
- Are you okay?
- I need your help.
- What happened to Wennerbom?
I don't know. He's okay.
I know who's trying to kill me
and who killed the baby. My father.
And I know who he is.
- Adrian?
- He's a Hidden, like us.
- He's a human.
- He fought in World War One.
With Wennerbom, Kron and Borg.
He has a terminal disease.
Only adrenaline from his own child
can slow down the disease.
- He's here. Come on!
- Here?
Where are you going?
He was here.
I'm the one who called him.
- Have you seen her husband?
- No.
Eldh! Over here.
Over here! Come on!
He can't have gone far.
He's around here somewhere.
- Call him.
- What?
Call him again. Just do it.
Give me your cell phone.
There. He's over there!
- Wait!
- We don't have time!
Are you okay?
Be quiet.
There. Come on!
- Adrian
- Don't you ever quit, Viveca?
I almost admire that about you.
You killed your baby. Your own baby.
That makes two of us.
The prodigal son.
Why? Why do you want to kill me?
Who kept you hidden all these years?
- You're going to do it again.
- This has nothing to do with you.
- You're going to kill another child!
- Get out of here, Viveca!
How many children have you killed?
You don't know
who you're dealing with.
Save your own life.
Kron said you have to burn out your
own children to manage your disease.
- But you're afraid of me.
- Hardly.
Because I'm not a child anymore.
My adrenaline is too strong.
I'm no longer a vaccine.
I'm a poison.
- Did you kill my mother, too?
- No. I only kill to survive.
Just like you.
You have the same disease.
Kill or die.
You have to make a choice.
When you've done it once,
you have to keep doing it.
Otherwise, all the lives lost
will have been in vain!
Jonas! Do it! Kill me!
Kill me!
Jonas! Jonas!
- You'll always be my son!
- Jonas!
I was never your son.
The child. Give us the child!
Take the child.
Let go of her!
Hold him!
- Stay where you are!
- You don't stand a chance.
- Wait!
- Stop, or I'll jump!
Eldh! Don't do it!
Take her.
The offer still stands.
Come work for us. For me.
You no longer need to
fear the police.
I had you removed as a suspect.
- You're a free man.
- Thank you.
You created quite a mess.
It took a while to clean up.
I said thank you. And I meant it.
What's stopping you?
Are you afraid of Adrian?
The Communion isn't perfect.
What society is?
But we take care of our own.
High and low, everyone has a place
and a part to play.
- Everyone gets what they need.
- As long as they obey the council.
We're all Hidden.
The Communion protects us.
We can protect you.
- Do you really believe that?
- I have to. What's the alternative?
Ninni Ek can be handled. Trust me.
There were five of them.
Adrian and four others.
We'll find them.
Jonas. You're one of us now.
Sooner or later,
you have to choose a path.
Sooner or later, you'll need us.
And Candlemas.
Your body will need it,
whether you want it to or not.
- Sooner or later.
- Sure But not today.
So you're back on your feet?
At Candlemas, I don't have a choice.
- How are you feeling?
- Not bad for a 70-year-old.
Are you coming in?
- It can't hurt.
- A nuclear reactor from the 1950s?
- What are you going to do?
- I don't know.
I let him get away. I had him.
- But I couldn't.
- Because that's who you are, Jonas.
You're not your father.
The things you've been through
I have something for you.
- What's that?
- I don't know.
- Who gave you this?
- It's gone through many hands.
But it's meant for you.
- The doors are open.
- Thank you.
I think you made the right choice.
- Letting everyone attend Candlemas.
- For now.
What made you change your mind?
- Odenholm.
- What's Mrs. Ek up to?
Is she creating her own register?
It would appear so.
You found the way.
Little boy!
You're all grown up!
How long have you known me?
Your whole life.
Your mother died in childbirth.
I exchanged you for a stillborn
before your father came.
Why did you do that?
To save your life.
Your mother asked me to.
She must have known
what your father was planning.
It's just coffee.
So, you handed me over to Kron,
so he could experiment on me?
To operate on you.
Kron didn't know who you were.
I told him you were mine.
I wanted you to have a normal life.
In a normal world.
Not have to be a Hidden.
Not have to be the one I really am.
You were never meant to wake up.
And yet I did.
And who are you now?
Adrian will never stop hunting you.
You won't make it on your own.
Stay with us.
With you and the Outcomers?
You'd be safe with us.
That's what everyone says.
Consider it a standing invitation.
If you're in trouble.
- Is this where I can find you?
- No. But I'll find you.
Thank you. For the coffee.
The first step has been taken.
The time has come for
the next phase.
