Marvel's Avengers Assemble (2013) s05e12 Episode Script

Descent of the Shadow

Black Panther, Klaue and Madame Masque are accounted for.
That's two down, two more Shadow Council to go.
Killmonger and Tiger Shark are still at large and still dangerous.
Shuri, have you found anything? Where is Baron Zemo? I lost Zemo in the smoke.
I did find this.
It must have broken open when the temple crashed.
The Crown wasn't in it.
Hmm? Baron Zemo, do you hear me? What is your status? I am alive.
Have you found the containment box? We possess the box, but it is empty.
The Crown must have separated from it when we crashed.
We are searching for it now.
And I believe our enemies are searching as well.
Keep at it, Zemo.
We cannot allow Killmonger to find the Crown before we do.
All right.
How do we do that? Everybody fan out in three different directions.
You two split up that way.
I'll go this way.
[SHURI] So, we're just going to leave Klaue and Madame Masque? [BLACK PANTHER] Finding the Crown is more important than standing guard over them.
Secret Avengers, let's move out.
At long last, my victory is complete.
I think not.
[YELLS] Killmonger! Zemo! What do you think you're doing? That Crown does not belong to you! - [YELLS] - [GRUNTS] - [YELLS] - [GRUNTS] [GRUNTS, GROANS] [KILLMONGER CHUCKLES] You play the part of hero too well for your own good, Zemo.
[COMMUNICATION DEVICE BEEPS] Killmonger to Shadow Council.
I have the Crown.
Meet me at the [YELLS] Give me the Crown, Killmonger.
[GRUNTING] - [YELLS] - You lost.
Admit it.
Embrace your failure.
[GRUNTS] Not while I live.
- [BLOW LANDS] - [BOTH YELL] You heard the man, Killmonger.
[YELLS] [GRUNTS] Thank you, Captain America.
I will take that now.
Captain America? What makes you think [FEMALE VOICE] I'm Captain America? Surprise.
It's me, Princess Zanda.
Excited to see your old love? [GROWLS, GRUNTS] [GRUNTS] [CHUCKLES] He doesn't look excited.
He looks weak.
Indeed, Tiger Shark.
Victory belongs to the strong.
Victory belongs to the Shadow Council! [STRAINING] You will never take the Crown, Killmonger.
I will not allow it! You are a fool, T'Challa.
Weak and pampered, like all the royals.
With this, I will bring Wakanda to its rightful place in the world.
Your time is done.
Tiger Shark, if you will.
Finally.
I haven't eaten anything in hours.
[GRUNTING] [CHUCKLING] No! You can't do it! [GRUNTS] [BOTH GRUNTING] Cheating! That's cheating! [STRAINS, GRUNTS] [BOTH GRUNT] Struggle all you like.
This is the end of you.
You and your pet traitor.
[GROWLS] [ROARS] [ALL GRUNT] The Crown, Killmonger.
Right now.
Never.
Zemo is nothing.
T'Challa is broken.
The three of us can defeat you.
Maybe.
But I'm betting you can't handle this.
[KILLMONGER] Iron Man! Yep.
Iron Man and the Avengers.
[GRUNTS] You know, Earth's Mightiest Heroes and all that.
[YELLS, GRUNTS] [GRUNTS] You may have heard of us.
Hey, Thor, I was gonna say that.
You said it last time.
Let somebody else have a turn.
[GRUNTS] Thor, don't lose him.
Fear not, my friend.
The fish man will not escape my wrath.
Unhand me, outsider.
This is none of your concern.
You say that, but then you crash your giant space temple into my backyard.
We frown on that kind of thing.
So, this is awkward.
Well, you could always surrender.
It'll save time.
All right, all right.
I just need to do one little thing first.
[GRUNTS] We must stop her! You know, the Avengers will take it from here.
You've done enough.
[GROWLS] Go.
[PANTING] [GRUNTS] [GRUNTS] Unfair.
How did you get in front of me? [BOTH GRUNT] Huh? [STRAINING] Uh, yeah, we're the Avengers.
We're just that awesome.
We told you surrendering would save time.
You think you can hold me? [CHUCKLING] - Ugh! - [GASPS] [GRUNTS] Surprised? Maybe you should wear sleeves.
Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
I hate shape-shifters.
You almost blew up New York.
Who does that? And for what? A little bling? I appreciate the importance of accessories.
But that Crown? Let's be honest.
It's a bit much.
[GRUNTS] That Crown is the greatest weapon Wakanda has ever produced.
[STRAINED] I did not know that! Hey, T'Challa, buddy, what is the "greatest weapon Wakanda has ever produced" doing in New Jersey? [LOCK CLICKING] [STRAINING] [PANTING] So, the Avengers just barged into our battle and took over? Who do they think they are? Uh, the Avengers? Fair.
The Avengers can keep the Shadow Council occupied.
We must secure the Crown.
Nothing is more important than that.
[SHURI] Hey! [GRUNTING] Find the Crown.
Shuri! I won't let them escape.
You sure she's okay on her own? [CHUCKLES] Madame Masque and Klaue will not know what hit them.
[GRUNTS] [GASPS] [PANTING] [GRUNTS] Sorry, Klaue.
You're just not fast enough.
I don't need fast when I've got this.
- [ASCENDING WHIRRING] - [GRUNTS] - [GRUNTS] - [STRAINING] [GRUNTS] Two birds, one stone.
[STRAINING] [YELLS] What is this? Ceramic tangle web.
I designed it myself.
What do you think? We don't have time for silly games! We've all got to get out of here, now! "We"? I think it's time you and I had a little chat.
[GROANS] [GRUNTS] [ROARS] [GRUNTS] Tired already, fish man? I thought Atlanteans were meant to be tough! Having fun over there, Thor? It has been some time since I had a real workout.
Ha-ha! - [GRUNTS] - There's the little fish! Huh? [GROANS] Okay, then.
Anyone got eyes on Killmonger? [KILLMONGER] Where are you, you blasted thing? I haven't come this far only to lose you in There! Finally, - I can - [BLACK PANTHER] Ironic, is it not? You hid yourself from us for all those years, but here, now, I see your true face.
And I see you, my King.
[YELLS] [BOTH GRUNTING, YELLING] The Crown! At last! [GRUNTS] Zemo, hurry! Secure the Crown! You have your crown, King T'Challa.
This one belongs to Baron Zemo.
No, Zemo! Don't put it on! [LAUGHING] [LAUGHING CONTINUES] [LAUGHING] Yes! Finally I have the power that is my birthright! Finally, Zemo will rule! Zemo, take off the Crown.
This was not the plan.
[LAUGHS] Take it off? Why would I ever take it off? [BLACK PANTHER] Don't be a fool.
Remove the Crown before it's too late.
It's already too late for all of you.
[YELLS] [ALL CRY OUT] Years of planning, playing the Shadow Council against Wakanda all to gain your confidence, to learn your secrets.
Captain America was right.
You never should have trusted me.
None of you.
I was wrong.
Zemo fooled me.
For the record, Zemo fooled us all.
Now he's got super strength, energy blasts, and flight.
We need a plan, T'Challa.
Our first priority must be to separate him from the Crown.
- I think we - Secret Wakandan weapons? Villains coming out of the woodwork? At what point are you gonna come clean and tell us what this is all about? Tony, he can't do that.
But please believe me that he has a good reason.
I trust Black Panther with my life.
That makes one of us.
Zemo's headed for Manhattan.
Secret or not, we're all Avengers today.
And that means Avengers Assemble! So much power.
It is as if it's speaking to me, telling me [GROANS] Yes, telling me There! There is where I build my kingdom.
Taking advice from a hat? Interesting choice.
Go away, Stark.
Your pathetic repulsors are nothing to me now.
[THUNDERCLAP] [GRUNTS] Perhaps not, but they make a fine distraction! [GRUNTS] [GRUNTS] [BARON ZEMO] Incredible! My power is still growing! Already an Asgardian is no match for me.
Soon I will I will [GRUNTS] [ASCENDING WHIRRING] No! No, no, no, no! What is this? [GROANING] Aahh! No! It hurts! It's not supposed to hurt! Aah! See? This is what happens when you mess with other people's toys.
If I had a nickel for every Aah! Aah! [GRUNTS] Natasha, Clint, you're up! [ALARM BEEPING] Thor's out, my systems are shutting down, and something is really wrong with Zemo and that Crown.
Got it.
We're at the bridge right Whoa! [TIRES SCREECHING] Natasha! [TIRES SCREECHING] [BARON ZEMO] Away! All of you! Get away! I cannot stand all of your gibbering! I [SCREAMING] [PEOPLE EXCLAIMING] [BOTH GRUNT] [CAR ALARM BLARING] A second energy wave.
Far more powerful than the first.
And yet We're still standing.
How are we still standing? It seems your shield and my armor have something in common, Captain.
[COMMUNICATION DEVICE BEEPS] Shuri, where are you, sister? [SHURI] Here.
In the temple.
What's left of it, anyway.
I've been talking with Klaue.
He wants to tell you what Killmonger told him.
Ah, it's not important.
Just rumors, really.
Nothing to worry your heads abou - [WRIST DEVICE BEEPS] - [GROANING] [GRUNTS] Yes! Right! [GRUNTS] Killmonger discovered an old tale just a whisper, really about some miracle of ancient Wakandan technology.
The Crown.
Why do you think Killmonger had me digging around in those caves? Buried down there with those blasted bats was the lost legend of that Crown, all hidden away.
Everyone forgot.
But I found it.
[CHUCKLES] I know something about Wakanda that you don't.
[CHUCKLES] You don't know half as much as you think.
What I do know, little Princess, is that if you put on that Crown inside Wakanda, there's nothing that can stop you.
But outside Wakanda Outside Wakanda, the Crown becomes unstable.
Yeah.
Yeah.
Outside Wakanda, you put the Crown on, you and everything around you goes boom.
Which is why we have to get far away from here.
- [BEEPS] - [GROANING] Or Yes.
I see your point.
We could also stay a little longer.
[BLACK PANTHER] This makes no sense.
Why would the Crown only be safe to use within Wakanda? What does Wakanda have except Vibranium! Of course.
The Shrouded Temple was laced with pure Vibranium, as was the Crown's containment box.
No.
No, it doesn't track.
What about you and Killmonger? My armor contains Vibranium.
Killmonger's is an exact replica.
We both held the Crown and came to no harm.
Steve, it fits.
So, contact with normal Vibranium will neutralize the Crown's energy? If that's correct, the only question is, how much Vibranium does it take? [BARON ZEMO YELLING] Stay away! It hurts! [GROANING] Make it stop! That's right, folks.
Less panic, more running.
[PEOPLE CLAMORING] [SCREAMING] Natasha, go! We're running out of [GRUNTS] [GRUNTS] So, he's getting worse, right? That was worse? - [ASCENDING WHIRRING] - [YELLING] Definitely getting worse.
[CRIES OUT, GROWLS] How does that help? It gives us five more seconds.
Everybody go! Off the bridge! Go! [OVERLAPPING CHATTER] Now, you idiots! Move! [ALL EXCLAIMING] Whoa! "Idiots"? Kind of harsh, Nat.
Sorry.
I'm having a day.
[GROANING] Help me! It won't come off! You must help me.
You have to Help me! [BOTH YELL] [GRUNTS] [KILLMONGER] You're a fool, Zemo.
No one can wield the Crown outside Wakanda.
[GROANS] Killmonger, you know what this is.
You can stop it.
I do.
I can.
[GROANS] Then do it! We are allies.
We reformed the Shadow Council together.
We were allies.
You chose betrayal.
Now you pay the price.
The Crown's next pulse will be your last, Baron.
In just a few seconds, I should say.
[GROANS] Long enough to deal with you! Aah! Aah! [GRUNTS] [BOTH GRUNTING] [ASCENDING WHIRRING] [YELLING] [GRUNTS] [YELLING] [YELLS] [STRAINING] [GROANS] did it! T'Challa, we did it! Zemo's down, but the Crown T'Challa, the Crown's still active! [GRUNTS] T'Challa, wait.
What about Zemo? He is not important now.
The Crown is building to another explosive pulse! [MOTOR STARTS] [TIRES SCREECHING] This fiasco is your fault, Killmonger.
Had you not attacked the temple, we Huh? [MUFFLED YELLING] [MUFFLED GRUNTING] There's no "we," Zemo.
The plan was always for me to wield the Crown within Wakanda.
You've ruined all our plans for your selfish ends.
Because you're weak, just like T'Challa.
- The Shadow Council is the future.
- [MUFFLED GRUNTING] But you, Baron Zemo? - You're history.
- [MUFFLED GRUNT] [MUFFLED YELL] [CAR ALARM BLARING] [GRUNTING] Where are we going? The embassy.
Hop on.
I'm faster.
[GRUNTS] Aah! [GRUNTS] [PANTING] The pulses are getting worse.
And closer together.
We are running out of time.
[GROANING] T'Challa! [GROANING CONTINUES, STOPS] You okay? That thing's burning out the Vibranium in your armor.
[GROANS] It will hold long enough to get us to the sublevels.
That is all that matters.
The gyroforge not only houses our Vibranium, it is made of it.
If I can seal the Crown inside, it should absorb its explosive energy.
Avengers, everyone get to the Wakandan Embassy now! [STRAINING] - Black Panther is - [GRUNTS] [STRAINING] [CRYING OUT] [GROANS] [GRUNTS] What's happening? [STRAINING] The gyroforge's Vibranium cannot contain the Crown's energies.
The next pulse will lay waste to the city! Then we have to contain it! [YELLS] Steve, no! [STRAINING] [ASCENDING WHIRRING] I'm sorry, T'Challa! I can't hold it! The Crown's energy is going to tear you apart! T'Challa, get out! It's the only way! Aah! No! I won't leave you! Steve! Captain America! Steve? [IRON MAN] What happened here? And where's Cap? [BLACK WIDOW] I saw it.
I saw what happened.
Black Panther killed Captain America! No! T'Challa what have you done?
