Kubra (2024) s01e07 Episode Script

Episode 7

[quiet, mysterious music playing]
[Ali Cemal]
Merve, you know Gökhan better than anyone.
He locked himself in the lodge.
He won't say a word. This isn't good.
Gökhan is the only person
who can put an end to this.
- [people shouting]
- Listen, don't get me wrong.
I would die for Gökhan,
but we need to do something.
There's something we're overlooking,
something we're missing, but what?
[both sigh]
[quiet, mysterious music continues]
[inhales deeply]
[music becomes contemplative]
[Merve] Gökhan, the kids down there are
swearing they'll get vengeance somehow.
They're not letting anyone
into the neighborhood.
No one can leave their homes.
Gökhan, why aren't you doing anything?
Why aren't you saying anything?
'Cause I don't know what I'm supposed
to do or say anymore, Merve.
[sniffling] He's not talking to me.
He's not sending me signs anymore.
I can't feel Him inside me anymore,
in my heart, or in my soul.
He gave up on me, Merve.
I'm not the right person.
What happened?
So basically we need a miracle.
[Merve exhales deeply]
A miracle is exactly
what we need right now.
If he were to die
Wh What?
If he died and was resurrected
What if Gökhan dies
and gets resurrected in front of everyone?
That's a miracle.
Gökhan would never agree
to be a part of a scheme like that.
No, and he shouldn't anyway.
He shouldn't even know about it.
He needs to believe it too,
to regain his confidence.
I hear you, but
How're we gonna pull this off
without Gökhan knowing?
Come on, Ali Cemal.
Didn't you used to be in the army?
I thought that you were ex-military?
You can figure out a way
to make this happen.
[music becomes mysterious]
[boy] He's not gonna die, right?
[Ali Cemal] The gun is real,
but the bullet is fake.
It won't hurt Semavi.
It's custom-made.
There's chicken blood in it.
It'll just leave a bit of blood
on his body, and that's it.
What about me? What'll happen to me?
You're looking at one year, max.
And like I promised,
we'll take care of you and your family.
And then of course once you're out,
your shop'll be ready.
You got all that, son?
[mysterious music continues]
[distant dog barking]
[music becomes mysterious]
Don't tell mom about this.
[music intensifies]
Justice! Justice! Justice for Burak!
Justice! Justice! Justice for Burak!
Justice! Justice! Justice for Burak!
Justice! Justice! Justice for Burak!
Justice! Justice! Justice for Burak!
Justice! Justice [fades out]
You must all heed the commands of Allah!
Do not follow in the footsteps of Satan!
Because he's always leading you astray!
[mysterious music continues]
Satan is truly your greatest enemy!
You hear me?
[gun blast]
[mysterious music becomes quiet]
[mysterious music continues]
[Gökhan] You're up early.
[music stops abruptly]
[chuckles faintly]
Good morning.
Good morning.
[Gökhan exhales deeply]
[Gülcan] Gökhan?
Gökhan, are you awake?
[Gökhan sighing] Hmm?
You really need to see this.
We're not involved in the decision
- Regarding the recent events
- You're crowding me, you're too close.
Give me some space.
I've already told you. We're providing
you with as much information as we can.
All right, I repeat,
all of the bank accounts that are
associated with the Semavi Foundation
have been frozen as of now.
[contemplative music playing]
The relevant departments will conduct
a more detailed investigation,
and we will inform you
when it is appropriate.
[woman 1] Sir, can you tell us why now?
What prompted this decision?
Some people are calling it
"a politically motivated operation."
What do you mean, "political"?
In this country we all know,
the judiciary's independent
from the prosecutors. What politics
[woman 2] Earlier, you mentioned
receiving reports.
Could you share
more details of these reports?
Terrorism, guys. Connections to terrorism.
- [woman 3] A few more questions!
- [man] One question!
[overlapping chatter]
[woman 2] There you have the official
statement about the situation.
Now, on to our next report.
[chatter continues indistinctly]
[contemplative music continues]
What do we do now?
The shirt.
The police could arrive any second.
You sure Gülcan didn't tell him anything?
You think he would be acting
like this if she had?
Come on, let's hide the shirt
before the police get here.
The police should be here any second.
I'll start getting the guys together.
Just wait.
No, We're not gonna go
through the same thing again.
What else are we gonna do?
Just let them come and take everything?
Semavi, Baran is right.
People trusted us,
they donated their money.
They'll take everything.
You want us to let them do it?
They are trying to provoke us
to retaliate, Salih.
And we aren't gonna
give them what they want.
There will be no violence.
- Oh, shit.
- [music becomes tense]
[man] What are the cops doing here?
Let's go.
[tense music becomes faint]
[doorbell rings]
- [knocking]
- [doorbell rings]
[doorbell rings]
- Dilek Şahinoğlu?
- Yes?
You need to come with us
down to the station.
Get in the van.
[music becomes more tense]
[overlapping shouting]
[Ali Cemal] Watch out. Move. Move!
[shouting continues]
- Make way!
- [man] Out of the way.
- [people shouting]
- Enough. Enough!
Stop! Everyone, calm down.
What is it, officer?
Sir, we have a warrant
from the prosecutor's office.
[music become quiet and moody]
We'd appreciate it
if you didn't make this difficult.
Don't go near the building!
We'll be conducting a search!
[journalist] Mr. Semavi, would you like
to comment? Why is there a search?
[overlapping shouting]
[man] Give him space.
Why are the police doing a search?
[overlapping shouting continues]
Uncle Ali Rıza and Auntie Dilek
were taken by the police!
[moody music playing]
You know this is all about you.
They'll be coming for you next.
We have to arm ourselves.
[overlapping chatter]
This is serious now.
They're gonna do whatever they can.
We need to protect you, Semavi.
He's right, the police are taking
our elders into custody like criminals!
[breathing deeply]
What do we do?
I'm gonna figure it out.
[moody music continues]
[Gülcan] Gökhan?
[Gülcan panting]
I'm gonna get Mom out of there.
I'll save all of them. I promise.
[Merve sighs]
Gökhan, you okay?
If You're not going to speak
to me now, then when will you?
- When will You start speaking to me again?
- [woman] Semavi, son!
What a kind-hearted, handsome boy.
[music becomes quiet]
You won't give up, son.
You have us standing by you.
We stand with you,
and our hearts are with you.
Our hearts are with you,
and may your heart be with us.
[musical becomes mysterious]
[music becomes tense]
[ship horn blowing]
[music fades out]
[woman] As police remove the banner
previously raised by supporters of Semavi,
we are receiving news
of protests breaking out
all across the country over the matter.
Reports state that dozens of people
were injured during clashes
following the brutal police intervention
against Semavi's supporters.
Gülcan, this would be a really bad time
to lie, tell us if you took the shirt!
If I were going to take it, I would have
gone to Gökhan and told him.
Why don't I believe you then?
You've completely lost your minds, huh?
The police took my mother, and your
father, and you're worried about a shirt?
Of course we're worried about them.
But whoever finds the shirt
will use it against us.
They're looking for any way
to prove Gökhan's a fraud.
It wasn't me! And I didn't say
anything to anyone, all right?
Why don't you ask whoever knows
about the shit you two pulled.
They took my mother, my mother is gone!
And you two are worried about a shirt!
What do you think?
Seems like she didn't do it.
But I'm not sure.
[Ali Cemal sighs]
What if someone who knew the cops were
coming hid the shirt, is that possible?
No one's supposed to be able to get
in there without me. Somehow they did.
I'll look into it.
[car approaching]
[faint, tense music playing]
Do you know what's going on?
Shut it! You're the last person who should
be asking me anything. Give me that.
Give it!
If you were already gonna raid the place,
why'd you make me steal this?
Come on, huh, use your head for a second.
Because I'm a cop, you think that
means I know everything? Is that it?
Know who raided your neighborhood?
The Organized Crime Unit
and the Fraud Unit. Nothing to do with us.
Then what are you trying
to prove with this shirt?
You're already
breathing down Gökhan's neck.
What's your plan? Tell them you found
the shirt during the search and tested it?
Gökhan could say the police
are framing him.
At least I'll know the truth about him.
And we'll all know
whether or not your friend is a prophet.
Aren't you at all curious to find out?
The other thing.
Let's go!
[faint, tense music continues]
You happy, are we done?
You gonna leave me and Gülcan alone?
Even if I did leave you two alone,
you still won't find any peace.
[music fades out]
[Merve sighs]
No one knows how you feel
better than me, Gülcan.
My father is all I have.
For you, it's your mother.
We both have Gökhan.
Your brother, my husband.
But I'm pretty sure
we're about to lose him too.
I didn't take the shirt.
I really didn't.
I wish you had taken it.
At least then I'd know
that no-one was trying to hurt Gökhan.
Even if he hated me,
at least he wouldn't be
publicly shamed because of me.
You think that's why
someone took the shirt, really?
So they could use it
to ruin Gökhan's reputation?
I don't know.
But if so, then he would lose
more than just his reputation.
He'll also lose faith in himself.
And if he loses that,
it's all over, Gülcan.
I wouldn't just lose Gökhan,
I'd also lose my father.
Because the only one who can get
your mother and my father out is Gökhan.
[Merve breathes deeply]
[continues tapping foot]
[man] Put your arms up.
What is that?
All right.
Okay. Wait here.
[faint, tense music playing]
I was worried about you.
What do you mean?
You stole the shirt, didn't you?
[music becomes moody]
Why would you do something like that?
What'd you do with it?
- I gave it to the police.
- You did what?
I gave it to a cop only because
he was threatening to hurt you.
He has something on us, maybe drugs,
he was gonna find a way to hurt us.
- You hurt us! You've ruined everything!
- Please wait.
- Let me go!
- Gülcan, I'm begging you, hear me out!
You've ruined Gökhan!
I don't understand,
he's supposed to be your best friend!
How could you do this?
They've got my mother!
Was the shirt actually fake?
- You've ruined all of us!
- Gülcan.
- I can't believe you would do this!
- Just listen! Listen to me!
He said he'd hurt you if I didn't do it!
If anything happens to my family,
I'll kill you myself, do you hear me?
I'll do it, I swear.
[moody music continues]
[music stops]
[quiet, tense music playing]
[cell phone ringing]
- [tense music playing]
- [whimpering]
Answer me.
Come on, Gökhan, just answer the phone!
All right.
I don't have much time. Go ahead.
I thought your problem was with me.
My problem?
All that money your men just seized,
it belongs to people in need.
And you know that.
We're not doing anything wrong.
Oh, I believe you, of course, Gökhan.
I even believe that Allah speaks to you.
It's the prosecutors who don't.
Stop playing with me.
Release my mother, and all
the other people that you've arrested.
I thought you were supposed
to be Allah's chosen one? Huh?
Why don't you show us a miracle.
- You are invincible after all.
- [Gökhan sighs]
So, why should you need anyone
else's help to get your people out?
Why are you even here?
Unless, you do need my help, don't you?
So I guess that means that your power
only works against those poor losers
in that neighborhood of yours, am I right?
Listen, there are thousands
of people out there
waiting for me to say something.
I came here to resolve
this issue peacefully. If we can't
Then what, huh? Then what?
[tense music continues]
Are you going to declare war
against the government, Gökhan?
I'm sure, you wouldn't do
something like that,
I know you're a smart guy.
In fact, you're so smart
that you were never even
on the foundation's board.
They arrested everyone else but you.
And you know what, I bet those
poor guys in there are thinking,
"Oh, good, Our Gökhan, our Semavi,
is free. He'll come to rescue us."
"He'll start a riot for us."
But you aren't gonna do that, are you?
Because you know that if you do,
I'll make sure that all of you spend
the rest of your lives behind bars.
That is
the prosecutors will.
[inhaling] But we don't need
to do any of that stuff.
We can do it another way.
There's a way we can satisfy everyone.
Are you willing to hear it?
[helicopter starts up]
You'll agree, to come and kneel before us.
Starting with mine, one by one,
you will go down the line
and kiss the hands
of every single person who deserves it.
Then this'll all go away.
It's getting late,
I have to get to Ankara.
All right, Gökhan.
Let us know what you decide.
I swear before Allah,
I will die before I allow myself
or anyone else, to bow to oppression.
Well, death is just a moment.
It's easy.
The real challenge is to survive.
[contemplative music playing]
[music fades out]
[man on TV] Haven't all prophets been
known to perform miracles for people?
Don't skeptics
always subject them to scrutiny?
Hold on. Wait a second.
What are you doing here?
You know what this is?
The bloody shirt
of that con artist of yours. And here.
This is the proof.
That your supposedly holy,
supposedly sacred Semavi,
is either just a fraud or a chicken.
But I already told you that, didn't I?
I said, "He's a fraud."
"This man's trying to scam everyone."
"Allah has nothing to do with this."
I said you would regret it.
Everything I said came true.
But I don't regret it.
- I'm telling you, that man's a fraud.
- What difference does it make?
Are you trying to drive me crazy?
Oh no, don't worry. You won't go crazy.
You make others crazy.
But I know perfectly well
what I felt and experienced.
Thanks to that man,
I found the will to live again.
For the first time in forever,
I got a good night's sleep.
So whether that guy's
bulletproof or he's not,
it makes absolutely no difference to me.
And trust me, it won't make
any difference to the others either.
But why am I even bothering with you?
You can't understand any of this.
If you were capable of understanding,
you'd know why I went to see Semavi.
Now, you can take your proof and go.
[contemplative music playing]
[music fades out]
Nothing. He's not answering.
Even if you somehow
convinced everyone else,
Gökhan is still
going to figure out that you lied.
He's gonna know that we betrayed him.
[Merve groans]
This is all your fault.
What do you mean it's my fault?
- It's your fault.
- How is this my fault?
You two are the ones
who came up with this!
- Oh, yeah?
- If you two hadn't lied to Gökhan,
none of this would've happened.
We're the only ones who lied? You sneaked
around with your brother's best friend!
- What are you saying?
- I wouldn't provoke me!
- What are you saying?
- What're you doing?
- Do you hear what she's saying?
- It doesn't matter!
[Gülcan pants]
[Ali Cemal] We need to find Gökhan.
He should hear it from us
instead of from the police.
He's not picking up his phone, maybe he
already found out and he's avoiding me.
Maybe so,
but if he hasn't already found out,
we need to warn him.
Now, you two are going to calm down,
and then we'll all go look for Gökhan.
Okay, then. Come on, let's get going.
[exhales deeply]
[car approaching]
What is it, Chief?
Didn't arrest enough people, today?
Now it's my turn?
[clicks teeth] Unfortunately, not today.
I need evidence.
Something good. Something even more solid.
[quiet, tense music playing]
Take a look, see if you recognize it.
Doesn't really matter to you,
though, does it?
You can just find a new one
to cover in chicken blood,
to fool those poor people
who love you so much.
But it matters to me.
'Cause now I can be completely certain
that you're just a fraud.
Give it back. Give it!
You should hold on to this.
When I finally put you behind bars,
maybe you can put it up on the wall,
next to your bunk bed in jail.
It'll be a good reminder for you.
[moody music playing]
[car engine starts]
Not here either.
Where else could he be?
[cell phone vibrating]
[music fades out]
He's calling.
[vibrating continues]
[vibrating continues]
[car approaching]
[car doors open]
[car doors close]
So tell me, are you in on it too, Gülcan?
No, Gökhan, listen,
it's really not what you think, I swear.
But you knew about it, right?
You knew.
[melancholic music playing]
Whose idea was it?
Was it yours?
Was it yours?
Say something! You're the ones
who have access to this place!
Who came up with this plan?
It was my plan, Gökhan.
Why, Merve?
Gökhan, you were quitting.
I knew you needed
to find your strength again,
you needed to lead all the people
who had put their faith in you.
- Lead them?
- Yes, lead.
If it weren't for those few drops
of blood on that shirt,
more people
would have died there that day.
- You know that as well as I do.
- Are you defending it now, Merve?
Do you understand
the consequences of what you've done?
Because of you,
everyone who's been trying to discredit me
has leverage, do you understand?
Gökhan, you're right.
I know you're upset.
I don't blame you.
But you are still the one Allah chose.
Gökhan, you're Semavi.
Nothing has changed.
Nothing has changed, right?
You've sullied the path that I follow.
You betrayed not only me, but also all
of the people who put their faith in me!
Now they all believe a lie
because of what you did!
Tell me, what lie?
What's the truth, Gökhan?
Is it a lie that we tried to help you?
What does it matter whether it's this
or a message on your phone?
[music becomes tense]
[Merve shudders]
[music fades out]
[contemplative music playing]
[gasping] Gökhan
Gökhan, I'm sorry, please.
- I didn't mean that. I tried to help you.
- Let go, Merve.
I didn't want this to happen. Gökhan
[contemplative music playing]
[Gökhan sighs]
You've heard, haven't you?
[Gökhan sighs]
Don't worry. I still have faith in you.
[Gökhan panting]
What you believe in is a lie.
There was no miracle.
You are my miracle, Semavi.
Just as I am your miracle.
I'm healed now.
You healed me, just as you
healed everyone who put faith in you.
Remember what you said?
"I have no superpowers.
My superpower is you."
All of us are your miracle.
[contemplative music continues]
This neighborhood is your miracle.
[Nalan] It's the mothers who now believe
they can leave a better world
for their children.
Your miracle is in the people
who pray for you.
It's in those who have felt
discarded and forsaken.
Your miracle is the smile on those
who have long forgotten how to smile.
Your miracle is us, Semavi.
You don't need any other miracle.
Raise your head. Have some pride.
The whole country is standing with you.
[contemplative music continues]
[people] Semavi! Semavi! Semavi! Semavi!
Semavi! Semavi!
[Nalan] If you can continue
to go on, so will the miracle.
Excuse me, sir?
[music fades out]
I really need to speak with you.
About what?
It's about Kübra.
[moody ethnic music playing]
[music continues]
[music fades out]
