Kung Fu (2021) s02e13 Episode Script

The Source

1
Nicky!
- Althea!
- Dennis, it worked!
- People got our message!
- Come on!
Ohh!
Aah!
Quick! Take cover!
Take cover! Take cover!
- Let's go!
- Down! Down! Get down!
Cover your heads and faces!
Be careful! Go, go, go!
Baba, watch out! Get down!
Move, move, move!
Aah! Ohh!
Don't bother following me!
If you try to pass
through, either of you,
you'll die just like Li Jiaming.

Your cousin's blood,
the blood of the hybrid is the only key.

It'll protect me,
guide me on my journey.

- Guide you where?
- The Source.

The Source?
The root of the
Guardian-Warrior legacies.

Xiao took just a drop
to create the bloodlines.

I'll take it all.

- And do what?
- Immortality is only the beginning.

- House seems to be ok.

- Maybe it wasn't that bad.

- Are you ok?
- Y-Yeah.
Yeah.

Mei-Li?
We have to go after him.

- We're too late.

- No.
I can't let him take that power.

It goes against everything I believe in.

- My Shaolin vow
- Don't get lofty on me now, monk.

There's a reason people
don't live forever.

What lives must die.

Tan will overturn the
natural order of this world.

He killed his children.

He's already caused so
much death and destruction,
and he did that as a mortal.

Imagine.
Think of what he'll do
with infinite power
and infinite life.

He'll kill everyone who gets in his way,
and those he doesn't kill
he'll control, including you.

The man you've been
hunting your entire life
gaining in power every day
while you're forced to watch.

I won't let that happen.
Will you?
It doesn't matter.
You heard him.

We try to follow him, we die.

Maybe not.

Maybe this is how it was supposed to be,
the two of us right
here crossing together.

Mia's blood is the key.

What's a hybrid?
A Guardian and a Warrior.

- You can't be sure.

- No
But I'm willing to try.

Nicky.

Nicky!
I don't see Tan anywhere.

How do we even know where to look?
I think
We feel it.

Nicky, this is hardly the time
to find your center.

Tan is after the Source,
the source of our power.

He said Mia's blood will guide him,
Hybrid blood, Warrior and Guardian.

We have to do this together.

I feel it.

Juliette.

Hello, Father.

It's getting stronger.

We can't be far.

What do we do when we find him?
You and I have very different ideas
of how to handle Russell Tan.

We stop him from getting the Source.

What happens after
we'll deal with later.

- That song.

- What song?
Nothing.

It's gone.
I can't feel it.

Zhilan? Zhilan?
Mama?
You're not my daughter.

You can't be.

Is that so?
I've studied Xiao's
secret writings for years.

This place is the Source
of the Warrior and Guardian powers.

It is their link to eternity.

This realm is their afterlife.

You don't belong here, Juliette.

You're human, a mortal.

I was, father.
Remember?
You killed me.

The truth is I don't know why I'm here,
but you broke the rules getting here.

You used me as blood to cross over.

Maybe what you did changed this place,
brought me here, brought me to you.

Can't you see it's really me?
So why'd you do it?
Why'd you kill me?
Zhilan?
Where are you?
I'm losing my way.

Suyin.

Do I know you?
Zhilan?
Mom!
Ha ha ha! My child!
Everything I've done, it's been for you.

That man who made you sick,
who took you from me,
I pledged my life to avenge you,
to kill him.

Vengeance is not our way.

We are Guardians, child.

We do not kill.

You had everything, Father,
all the money in the world,
children who adored and feared you,
who would do anything for your love.

You killed me.
You killed my brother.

You're wearing his corpse like a suit.

- Stop!
- What could possibly be
worth all that?
- Stop!
- I need to know why.

Because I refuse
I refuse to let what happened
to him happen to me!
Him?
My father.

My father was rich, powerful,
surrounded by people who
loved and admired him.

He was My hero
But when the illness came,
when he started to decline
All the people that admired him
turned into vultures,
licking their lips at a chance to get
a slice of his empire.

At the end
I was all he had left.

I still loved him
But when I saw him pass
When I saw his mortality
My love turned into hate.

He was weak,
and it made me sick.

I made a promise,
a promise I have kept to this day.

Not me.

Out of my way, Juliette.

You don't belong here.

Xiao.

Ha ha ha! Heh.

I applaud your efforts.

The voices in the woods,
using my daughter's face,
distracting me.

You can't stop me.

No one can.

No, my daughter.

There's no need to be sad.

We are all together again
You, me, Pei-Ling.

She's here?
Yes.
All the Warriors
and all the Guardians
who ever lived.

You'll see her soon.

She never told you.

Told me what?
Hmm?
I killed her.

I killed Pei-Ling.

- No.

- No.
I thought I was
avenging you.
I
Please forgive me!
Please forgive me.

Mama, please.

- I I will never forgive you.

- No!
Please, mama!
Warrior.

I need your help, Suyin.

You're a hybrid.
You can
lead me to the Source.

I didn't come here to fight you.

I'm just a ghost.
You can't hurt me.

Unh!
You don't belong here!
I told you I'm not here to fight.

But I will if I have to.

Do it
Like the others did.

No.

A Warrior who doesn't kill?
And they called me an abomination.

Huh!
I fought many Warriors.

They all tried to kill me.

Why won't you?
Guess I'm not like the others.

Ryan.

Henry, what happened to you?
It I I'm fine.

Hey.
Nicky needs our help.

She and Zhilan, they're chasing Tan.

I tried to follow, but
I couldn't get through.

- They're running out of time.

- What do you mean?
The door to the realm,
it's shrinking, fading.

If we don't help them,
Nicky will be trapped forever.

- Hey.
Any luck getting Mei-Li?
- No.
The lines are jammed.

- I'm sure she's all right.

- Yeah.
Thanks.

She's ok.

Lo Por! Lo Por!
- You ok?
- Yeah.

And Seb, the restaurant?
- No.
Sebastian kept me safe.

- Mm-hmm.

He's handing out the packed
food to the community,
he's checking on the neighbors,
- but how are the kids?
- Althea and Dennis are home,
and and Ryan's in the clinic.

- Ryan!
- Mia?
- Ryan!
- Evan?
She passed out in the car.

I tried to take her to the hospital.

The roads were blocked.

Pulse is rapid and weak.

She's in hypovolemic shock.

What happened to her?
Russell Tan drained her blood.

- Oh, my god.

- She needs a transfusion.

I'll do what I can, but I need you
to clear the room right now.

Please!
Go.
Come on.

The Source.

I'm begging you don't.

Go away, Xiao.

You're out of tricks.

You can't lay a hand on me.

No one can.

You only exist because of the
Warrior and the Guardian spirits.

You're less than a ghost.

And you're just a thief.

It took all the money in the world,
my stolen journals,
my magic for you to
cheat your way in here.

You stole from the realm, too, Xiao.

Your mistake you didn't have
the courage to take it all.

I will always be the creator,
mother of the bloodlines.

And soon, you will be nothing.

I've read all of your works, Xiao.

This realm will collapse
without the Source
And when I take it,
it will end
And so will you.

Mia!
- Y-You need to rest.

- Ryan, I can feel it.

Something's happening,
something bad.

Where's Nicky?
Zhilan?
Zhilan?
I can't find the Source without you.

Come on.

I'm done.
I don't care.

I don't care about any of this.

- Nicky's trapped?
- Not yet, but she will be soon.

The door's closing.

Must be some way
to keep it open, right?
I don't think so.
The
bell's been destroyed.

We have to get to her, help her somehow.

I couldn't get through.
I
don't think any of us can.

Mia!
Ryan, please.
I need to go.

Uh, how is she up already?
She shouldn't be.
She's
lost a lot of blood.

- Mia, you're in no shape to
- No.
I have to get to the realm.

Tan's getting close.
I can feel it.

It has to be you.

Mia's blood, her hybrid blood.

You're the only one who can
cross over and help Nicky.

Help her? How? Mia,
look.
It's dangerous.

- You don't even have a plan.

- Plan? What's going on?
- Everything ok?
- Not really.

Nicky jumped into Xiao's secret realm
to stop Tan from attaining immortality.

Door's closing behind her,
Mia wants to race in after her,
and we have no idea how
to actually help her.

Oh, yeah, and Russell's Kerwin.

He's got muscles now.

Ok.

I'm confused, too.

If Russell gets all that power,
how's Nicky gonna stop him?
- Well, in D&D
- Dennis, please not now.

Well, I'm just saying.

In D&D, an immortal
can sometimes be killed
if you've got the right magical
or divine object.

- A dagger.

- Yeah.
Like a dagger
as long as it's magical or divine.

In my campaign "Hammer
of the Celestials"
- Bam Bam, please.

- No.
A real dagger.

Tan used it to drain my blood.

He said it was the
blade that killed Suyin,
the first hybrid.

If it was strong enough to kill her
- Where is it?
- I don't know,
but it could be back there.

- At Zindle?
- Tan must have men.

Going back there could be dangerous.

- She won't be going alone.

- I can get you inside.

I should be able to pull
up a signal on my phone,
- but ohh it's out of juice.

- Clinic's running on backup.

- I'll hook you up.

- Come on.

We'll cover you while
you look for the dagger.

Then I'll cross over, help Nicky.

After everything Nicky's done for me,
I need to do this.

- Be careful.

- Yeah.

She was here, Nicky.

My mother
But when she saw what I was,
what I'd become,
she ran from me.

You were right.

I'm a monster.

I don't deserve forgiveness.

I've hated you a long time
Wanted you dead for what
you did to Pei-Ling
But those feelings haven't served me.

It's not who I am,
so for whatever it's worth
coming from me,
I forgive you.

It's not about what you've done.

It's about what you do.

We have to stop Russell
And we have to do it now.

Please, Zhilan.

You're too late.

Tan has taken the Source.

There's no stopping it.

This realm will crumble and die.

The Warrior and the Guardian.

You're a little too late.

The power Xiao gave you
is now but a mere drop compared
to what I possess.

You can't hurt me.

- You can't kill me.

- Everything can be killed.

I have big plans for San Francisco,
for the world.

I lived under the rules of a mortal man
my entire life.

In my new form,
none of those obstacles will hold
Not humans, not the law, not you.

We're not letting you back in our world.

Hmm.
Very well.

Who better than the
Warrior and the Guardian
to put my new powers to the test?
Huh!
My turn!
Is that all you've got?
It's still happening.

I can feel it.

The power spreading through my body,
it's growing.

Unh!
- Aah!
- Raah!
- Mia? What are you doing here?
- I came here to help.

- What is that?
- The dagger that killed
the first hybrid.

Unh!
This might have worked for a hybrid
Not me.

Now get out of my way.

Enough!
You don't understand.

I'm becoming a god.

Nicky, what do we do?
We can't beat him.

Aah!
He's too strong,
and he's getting stronger.

Aah!
- Go.
I'll stay.
And trap him here.

- We can still keep fighting.

Then we all die along with this realm.

Mia, come on.

Let me!
Xiao was right.

I can't control who I am.

I killed someone.

Raggh!
It's too late for me.
I can't be saved.

No one is past saving, my child.

Feels like I am.

I've broken my best friend's heart,
I can't go back to my family,
I have no plan, nowhere to go.

I have nothing.

In my experience,
nothing is the perfect place to start.

No one is past saving.

So go, Mia.
Live for me.

You really are a hero.

- Come on, Mia.

- No! No!
- Tell everyone I love them.

- Agh!
No!
You're not getting out of here.

Zhilan! Nicky, come on!
We've got to go!
Ugh! Agh!
Nicky!
- Go home, little monk.

- Let's go, Nicky.

Let's go, Nicky!
Aah!
Unh!
Aah!
- Unh!
- Aah!
Aah!
- You ok?
- Yeah.

Zhilan?
It's worse than I thought.

- That's what insurance is for, right?
- Mm-hmm.

- I'll document the damage.

- Ok.

Still a lot here we can salvage.

Oh.
Nicky, Mia.

- Your restaurant.

- Ohh.

Oh.
Ugh!
It's ok.
I'm ok.

Mama, Baba, I I'm so sorry
I couldn't stop this.

Hey.
Listen.
You have nothing
to apologize for, ok? Hmm? Ok.

What matters is that you
came back, both of you.

- Can I help?
- Sure.
Hey come with me.

Come on, come.
Come on.

Yeah.
Come on.
Get the broom.

You ok?
I'm ok.

And Mia?
She will be.

She still needs to learn
how to control her power,
build a future,
but I think I know
where she can start.

There she is.

- Heard you saved the world.

- Heard you saved the city.

Evan told me about your app.

You saved a lot of lives.

Hey, hero.

- I gave Ryan the Cliff Notes.

- Nicky
I got to know everything.

So Xiao's secret realm
was, like, the afterlife
for Warriors and Guardians?
Something like that.

They were all there.

I didn't see Pei-Ling,
but I know she was there, too.

It's gone now, though.

When Russell grabbed the Source,
the realm was doomed.

Whoa.
So all the Warrior
and Guardian spirits,
what happened to them?
I don't know, but I hope they found
their way to a better place.

Lo Por, slow down.

No, no.
I'm good.
There's so much to do.

Ok.
Hey, Frank, Ted, Alissa.

What what are you guys doing here?
We're here to help.

No, no, no.
That's very generous of you,
but, you know, we really can't
Ah, you both have done so much for me,
for the community, we're
not taking no for an answer.

- Oh.

- Oh!
Guys.
Hey!
Oh.
Hey.
Wait! Ho ho!
Lo Gong.

Ohh.

I don't want to see you.

I think we should talk.

When I got your call,
I handled things.

Your father will receive
a proper Wan Zai burial.

I need to know.

What happened?
Dad!
Hey, hey.
We're gonna
get you out of here, ok?
We're gonna get you home.

- I'm so sorry, son.

- No, no, no.
It's ok.

- Dad, it's ok.

- No, son.

I'm sorry I didn't tell you the truth.

About what?
About
Who you really are.

Dad? Dad?
No.
Dad!
Dad! Dad!
He died trying to save the world.

He saved my life.

This was left in your
father's things at the bunker.

I think he wanted you to have them.

It's not so bad.

I guess we got lucky.

Althea, you know, we
have to talk about it.

The app people are
gonna find out soon.

I know you're worried.

I am, but also, I'm not.

We did the right thing.

The bug I didn't do anything illegal,
at least not on purpose,
and I don't have anything to hide.

Yeah, and you know what?
I'm not gonna just wait around
for some investigator or journalist
to come knocking on our door.

I'm gonna come forward, and
I'm gonna own my mistake.

There will be consequences, lawsuits.

You could lose the company.

Yeah.
I'll start over.

I'll rebrand and rebuild,
whatever it takes to survive.

I'm pretty good at that.

Yeah, you are.

Hey.

Why haven't you
Been answering my calls?
I'm sorry.
I, uh
Henry?
My dad, he he didn't make it.

- He he took a bullet for me, and
- Henry.

I'm so sorry.

Why didn't you tell me?
I have to go.

My father I was reading his journal,
and he had so many
secrets, unfinished business,
and I knew he traveled the world,
but turns out he had a
whole other life out there,
and he was searching for something,
something called Si Naán.

I have to figure out what it is,
why he was searching for it.

I have to find it
For my dad
- For me.

- Ok.
Well, I can come.
I can help.

You've helped me so much.

Nicky, no.

I have to do this alone.

Henry
How'd you learn how to do that?
My Shifu taught me.

Can you show me?
You want to try?
That's good.

Greg, move your head!
