Chapter 27

1 Lessons in time travel, chapter zero.
Who we were does not dictate who we will be.
But often it's a pretty good indication.
Time travel does not give one the opportunity to change oneself.
But rather, to eradicate oneself and allow something else to form in the wake of what once was.
And in this is a sort of grace or madness.
Your turn.
It's okay.
I'm gonna fix this.
It'll all be over soon.
To the death.
Because if we don't believe in change then we don't believe in time.
I like this.
What? Us.
You.
I simply can't quit you, my dear.
Nor would you want me to, I suspect.
This is My Farouk.
The parasite in my skull.
Such a pleasure to see you again, Charles.
It's been quite some time.
You deceived me.
I came here in good faith.
You broke my boy.
Your boy has always been broken, I'm told.
Now I know you.
David.
The victim.
A boy pretending to be a man.
Always blaming others.
Boo-hoo.
David, per I suppose this makes us dance partners.
Does it not? Go, go, go.
Go.
Kerry! Kerry Kerry.
Oh, Mother, Grandmother.
It's come at last, the sickness.
No! - Behind you! - Where? They're everywhere-everywhere.
So many.
Too many.
We have to get out of this house.
Come on.
Okay.
Cary, what do we do? Cary.
Spaghetti.
My brain is full of spaghetti.
What is happening? What is happening? The world's ending.
My world ended a long time ago.
- I can't think.
I - Yes, you can.
Cary.
I They consume time, yes? So, theoretically, were someone to have twice the temporal identity, then that someone would be twice as difficult to consume.
Like like a loaf of bread with two times as much yeast.
- Or - So you want us to bake bread? Yeah, no.
No, I I have an idea.
It may not stop them, but it will certainly confuse them.
Together.
One more time.
I see it now.
You're gods.
I wish.
Kerry.
Oh, I love my job.
David, whatever you're doing, do it faster.
Your problem is you think this fight is one-on-one.
You against me.
But I'm not alone.
I am Legion.
We all share one thing Monster, monster, monster, monster, monster, monster Monster, monster, monster, monster! We hate you.
Monster.
Such a disappointment.
We can make anything we fancy in this arena of infinite promise, and this is what we come up with? Weapons? War? Surely we have more imagination than that.
How are we doing? I can't talk.
Killing.
Kerry? Is something wrong? Kerry? No.
Nothing at all.
Do you know why you have failed? Because under all your anger there is a baby.
Scared, small.
Given away by his mother and father.
A baby who is unloved, and knows that he's unloved.
I'm a good person.
I deserve love.
No, you don't.
Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb? Mother, do you think they'll like this song? Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls? Ooh, ah Mother, should I build the wall? Mother, should I run for president? Mother, should I trust the government? Mother, will they put me In the firing line? Ooh, ah Is it just a waste of time? Hush now, baby, baby Don't you cry Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares Come true Mama's gonna put all of her fears Into you Mama's gonna keep you Right here under her wing She won't let you fly But she might let you sing Mama's gonna keep baby Cozy and warm Ooh, baby Ooh, baby Ooh, baby Of course mama's gonna help build the wall Mother, do you think she's good enough For me? Mother, do you think she's dangerous To me? Mother, will she tear your little boy apart? Ooh, ah Mother, will she break my heart? Hush now, baby, baby Don't you cry Mama's gonna check out All your girlfriends for you Mama won't let anyone dirty Get through Mama's gonna wait up Until you get in Mama will always find out Where you've been Mama's gonna keep baby Healthy and clean Ooh, baby Ooh, baby Ooh, baby You'll always be baby to me Mother, did it need To be so high? My boy.
My beautiful boy.
Time to die.
Is it because I'm beside myself with love That I can't say these things to you Oh, you and me will never be Fine You and me will never be Fine Was taken out for good? Robots in disguise Have called a war to you, honey? You and me, we'll never be fine I've lived in your son's mind for 32 years.
I saw what he saw, I felt what he felt, I thought what he thought.
And over time, what was once a prison became a person.
It's hard to hate someone you understand.
I love the boy, Charles.
I consider him, uh, my Son? Would that I could be as strong a father as you are.
But alas, it's not in my nature.
- May I be honest with you? - Please.
The man you met, the man I was, he brought you here with base intentions.
To dominate, to punish.
Not because he was strong, because he was weak.
I was weak.
Now I'm older and weary of this churn.
We call it I did not come here to defeat David, but to aid him in his quest.
What I'm trying to say is I have changed.
- Well, then I have a proposition for you.
- Hmm.
Kerry? I don't feel so good.
It's nothing.
It's just a little arthritis.
We're still deadly.
I-I'm scared.
I don't want to die.
There is no glory like the glory of one last battle.
Please, Father, before we go, there's one more thing I must do.
David.
Stop! I had him! - Yes, I saw the blood.
- What did you think, - I was gonna kill him with words? - David, stop.
Listen to me, please.
I see you.
I do.
You're trapped in a war that you didn't start.
This is my fault.
I did this.
You never had a chance because of me.
What what are you saying? I'm saying that war is not the answer.
It's the problem.
David, we don't need this barbarism.
- I've made a deal with Farouk.
- What? Oh, you're saying we just leave? I'm saying that we respect their right to exist and they respect ours, yours.
Isn't that what you want? - To be free? - I - Farouk will never go for that.
- He will.
And what are we supposed to do, take him at his word? We're telepaths.
We never have to take anyone at their word.
I've No, I-I've come this far, and I can't just leave it up to David.
David.
I wasn't there for you.
You needed me, your mother, and we gave you away.
I can't imagine doing it, but I adore you, David, and that will never change.
I could only have done it to protect you.
I was a baby.
I'll never know what that's like, the pain of it, to be abandoned, but I am here now, and I want to make it right.
So, please, my darling boy let me be your father.
You have become soft in your old age.
Was I really this bitter and filled with hate? How petty you seem.
Here.
Let me show you what I have learned.
My beautiful boy.
Come on, king.
Come on.
"To bed, to bed," the mother said.
It's always blue.
It's always blue.
You leave me alone! God! Hold the phone.
Is that? Who's that? Why are the hot ones always so crazy? How does that make you feel? We've got to get better.
I was looking for you.
David? No.
Trick or treat! They're coming for you David! Take my hand.
We can do together.
Do you see? You decide what is real and what is not.
This is you.
Seeing you like this, what you have become.
Boy undone by revenge.
I'm sorry.
Stay behind me.
How did you Thank you.
Sydney Barrett, Gabrielle Xavier and the infant David, the universe acknowledges you, that you exist and that your existence is important.
I can see that you've suffered, that people you love have suffered, and you want to know that it meant something.
It did.
It does.
Nothing of value is ever lost.
Did he do it? David? The David you know is almost gone.
His past changed.
And now, Sydney Barrett, your past will change, too.
The life you've lived, your memories, everything will be new.
So I die? This you, the you you are now.
But the you you will be? She will be glorious.
How do you I am time.
I see all.
I like your jumper.
Thank you.
- So do I die now? - No.
I will give you time for one last thing.
And thank you for helping me when I was human.
What just happened? I think we saved the world.
So a new beginning.
What will you do? Be a baby.
Then a boy.
Then a man.
Well, when you're grown, come and see me.
Together, we will rule the world.
Mm, no.
I don't think I will.
Ah, well Okay.
Now I'm ready.
Look at you.
I feel like I look sophisticated.
I was gonna say wise.
You okay, old man? I don't think you can call me that anymore, huh? Then how about brother? That works, my love.
That works.
This world makes no sense when you're not in it.
I feel exactly the same way.
- Is David? - No.
He's upstairs.
With his friends.
Our baby has friends.
Thank God.
Are you all right? Do you ever think you should have just let me sleep? In the hospital? Never.
- I saw demons.
- Yes, you did.
I saw a monkey with a king in his head I saw our son as an adult but so angry.
And together we fought a mad tyrant.
So demons sounds like you got off rather lightly.
I can't do this without you.
He needs us both.
No more travel.
No more bloodshed.
You know, I've always wanted to become a teacher.
Are you gonna kiss me? Abso-bloody-lutely.
Hey.
Hey.
Are you not surprised to see me? She told me.
Switch.
I get to do it all over again.
This life.
Yeah.
And I bet you're gonna turn out extraordinary.
Without me around.
Yeah.
I am.
Sorry.
I like your mom.
Yeah.
I'm looking forward to getting to know her.
So now what? We just sort of Fade away.
Into the ether.
I have to say, I didn't think you'd help me.
I didn't.
I helped him.
David.
Yeah? Be a good boy.
