B Sides

1 TANDY: Previously on Cloak and Dagger TANDY: It's possible I'm not over my dad the way I wish I was over my dad.
- [car horn honks.]
- Daddy! YOUNG TYRONE: Billy didn't do anything wrong.
And this cop - [gunshots.]
- just killed him.
TANDY: Well, that's why you have me.
- I'm glad I do have you.
- Me, too.
- It's so good to see you, Liam.
- You all right? I'm Andre Deschaine.
- I run the outreach programs here.
- You know, someone rescued a dozen women from a human trafficking operation? ANDRE: Some of them recall a wild story of a girl who looks like an angel, a boy who moves like a shadow, took down the bad guys, and freed all of 'em.
STEPHANIE: One of those businesses is a salvage yard near the Industrial Canal.
- Stolen cars? - STEPHANIE: No, there's ambulances.
- Private ambulances.
- MAYHEM: The other girls - where are they? - [choking.]
I-I don't know! MIKAYLA [crying.]
: Please, help me! Somebody get me out of here! Please! No no, no, no, no, no, stop! TANDY: Look at the pictures on these records.
These are our missing girls.
I mean, what kind of monster needs to keep all this pain cataloged in one place? [taps glass.]
TANDY: I suppose the best place to start is with a story.
- [Taser crackling.]
- [Tandy screaming.]
TANDY: After all who doesn't love a good story? [pages flipping.]
[static popping.]
[instrumental music plays.]
[waves crashing.]
- NATHAN: Tandy! - BILLY: Ty? Ty! BILLY: Ty! - Can you hear me? Are you okay?! - NATHAN: Did you get hurt? TANDY: So, I'd like to propose a toast to Tyrone.
My best friend.
My port in a storm.
My hero.
[laughs softly.]
I can't wait to see exactly how you're gonna make the world a better place.
- MAN: Hear, hear! - [guests murmuring in agreement.]
[door opens.]
[door closes.]
TYRONE: Hey! You made it.
You really think I'd miss this? [guests murmuring.]
Congratulations to Tyrone Johnson on officially becoming a member of the New Orleans Police Department! [pop.]
[guests cheering, laughing.]
CONNORS: Congratulations again, man.
Your son worked really hard on this.
Congratulations to both of us.
You've been a good mentor to Ty.
And not just in the academy.
Both of you give me too much credit.
ADINA: So, now you got the big promotion at the DA's office, you're too good to sing with your mother? BILLY: Mom, it's Ty's big day.
He doesn't need us making a scene.
- You talk back like that at home? - DUANE: Hell no, ma'am.
AUNTIE: This is High John the Conqueror Root.
Keep this in your pocket at all time, it'll bring you good fortune.
EVITA: One of the perks of having a girlfriend with a Mambo in the family.
[guests chattering, laughing.]
[piano playing.]
NATHAN: Hey, honey.
Your new recital it's Giselle, right? My New York counterpart is asking for me to hook him up with some tickets.
"Recital"? Our daughter dances for the New York City Ballet.
- She doesn't do "recitals.
" - Hey! That's not true.
- I did in the third grade.
- NATHAN: Okay, fine.
Can we hook him up with some tickets to your ballerin-ing? Ballerama? Dance battle? - This is what I get for marrying a nerd.
- TANDY: I got you, Dad.
[Nathan and Melissa laughing.]
[piano playing.]
There's a land that is fairer than day And by faith, we can see it afar For the Father waits over the way To prepare us - NATHAN: I'm not dancing.
- MELISSA: Come on.
Duane my husband doesn't dance.
Would you mind accompanying an old lady? I don't see any of those around, but I'll take a spin with you.
In the sweet By and by We shall meet On that beautiful shore We shall sing on that beautiful shore No! Don't hurt her! [music stops.]
Tandy, what are you talking about? It was confetti.
TYRONE: Thought I saw you sneak out.
Hey! There's the man of the hour.
- [Tyrone scoffs.]
- And look at you.
Dressed up like us common folk.
[chuckles.]
Oh, Evita spilled some champagne on me.
- Might have had a little too much.
- I knew I liked her.
[laughs softly.]
Thanks again, comin' all the way from New York.
Don't even! You flew out for my first and second shows.
Of course I'm gonna come home for your graduation.
No place like it, right? Sure - What's wrong? - Nothing.
Ma says we're low on ice, so I was gonna go, uh pick some up from the store.
Wanna go for a walk? - [sighs.]
- [laughs.]
Come on.
TYRONE: Y'know I'm gonna need that back at some point, right? Sure you're ready for this? What'd do you mean? Growin' up.
I mean, all you used to do was complain about living up to expectations.
If you thought you had to act perfect before Come on.
I'm not the only black cop in the city, Tandy.
Where is this coming from? I mean, I've been talkin' about this since we were kids.
Ah, I was just thinkin' about the day we met.
Dad's car splatted into the water, and you were up on the docks.
Yeah.
Connors stopped Billy, thinkin' he stole that radio.
And I couldn't swim to shore by myself.
But you saw me.
Nine years old, and dove in to save some random girl.
[Tyrone chuckles.]
And saved my whole family in the process.
Okay, you're over-hyping it.
I'm not! That crash made my folks get their shit together.
[laughs.]
I mean, now look at 'em.
You saved us, and you still wanna keep on giving.
So? So, compared to that, what am I doin' with my life? Pfft, right right.
The prima ballerina hasn't accomplished anything.
[sarcastically.]
Ha-ha! [doorbell dings.]
TYRONE: You saved me too, you know? What? You saved me, too.
I always thought helping you was the reason Connors never arrested us.
So, you saved my life by jumping in the water, and I saved yours by not drowning? [scoffs.]
It's not just that, you had my back.
Who listened to me every time trying to measure up was drivin' me nuts? One day long ago, I saved your life, but every day since, you've been saving mine.
Tyrone Johnson comin' in all slick and sweet.
I can't say anything nice to you.
[chuckles.]
MAN: Yo, girl, wassup? I just wanted to let you know that you're hot.
And let you know that hot girls like you shouldn't have to settle for that.
TANDY: Girls like me? Like what, hmm? What am I settling for? Leave her alone, man.
That's the way things are now.
They'll take our women, and whine that the world's still racist.
- [Tyrone laughs.]
Look, come on.
- Are you serious?! - Look, let's get out of here, come on.
- No, no, no, no.
No, I want to hear the world according to redneck.
Shit don't move, don't move! [gun cocks.]
You gonna rob me, huh? - Sir, no one is trying to rob you - Shut up! Think you can just walk in here, and do whatever you want?! TYRONE: Sir, no one is walking in and doing anything, okay? I'm a police officer.
Just let me get my badge.
All right, sir my badge is with my friend.
I'm gonna need you to stay calm so she can take it out.
Can you do that, sir? Yeah.
- [crunch.]
- [gunshot.]
- Tandy! - Ty, get down! - [blast.]
- [Tandy and Tyrone grunt.]
Tandy Ty [hyperventilating.]
- Tandy, you okay? - Ty, what the hell?! Was that [hyperventilating.]
MELISSA: So, lunch for my favorite engineer is almost done.
[static popping.]
[static popping.]
[folk-country music playing.]
MELISSA: And remember, I packed your airsickness pills if you need them.
What? In four hours, you're flying out on a helicopter to fix Roxxon's problems, do you really want to start by losing your breakfast into Lake Borgne? I'm not fixing Roxxon's problems.
[music continues playing.]
We're just We're getting some weird reports from this rig, so Scarborough wants someone out there looking at the operation.
Well, he wouldn't be sending you if he didn't trust you.
He wouldn't be sending me if literally anybody else wanted to do it.
The supervisor there is a raging asshole and [siren wailing, blaring.]
Honey? Don't you need to get that? [siren fades, ringtone starts.]
Mr.
Scarborough, hi, I-I was just Yes, yes, that's fine, absolutely, I'll be there.
[sighs.]
Looks like they moved my departure time up.
[music continues.]
Hey you can handle this, okay? I know you think that your bosses don't take you seriously They don't.
Roxxon hired you because Because you're still friends with Dad's friends from when he used to work there.
Because you finished early and top of your class.
And because whatever it is leaky faucet, global warming if it needs fixing You're cribbing from your old propaganda, Mom.
Wasn't down with them when they were about Dad.
It's been 10 years since he moved to Silicon Valley Can we do the whole "my abusive father's not an asshole" thing another time? I have a lot to think about today.
Fair enough.
Kick some ass.
- In the sweet - In the sweet - By and by - By the by We shall meet on that beautiful shore By and by - In the sweet - In the sweet - By and by - By the by We shall meet on that beautiful shore By and by Hi, excuse me, could you help me find the, um Excuse me, sir, can Yeah great.
You look lost.
Uh, yeah I'm looking for the Machine Shop? - I thought I was supposed to turn left - I'll take you there.
- This place is a maze.
- Thanks.
I'm from the home office, Tandy Bowen.
BILLY: Wait, you're from corporate.
Billy Johnson.
My brother, Tyrone.
Sorry you're here for nothing, though.
- The pressure analytics were skewed.
- What pressure analytics? MINA: Hey! I don't care what Scarborough needs, I'm not having a spy on my rig.
So, I'm sorry, Miss Bowen? - As in Nathan Bowen? - Um, yeah.
Seriously, does Scarborough think just because I used your daddy's research, I'd let you in or something? No.
Go home.
Like, now.
Okay, look, I-I know it must be tough being the only woman around here.
I'm sure you gotta bust some balls, but Yeah, I'm not explaining myself to Structural Engineering Barbie.
Dr.
Hess is kinda an acquired taste.
How do I get to the Core Room from here? I need to take a look at those skewed pressure analytics.
I-I don't really know if Dr.
Hess - would be okay - Spoiler alert: I'm really good at not giving a shit.
TANDY: So, how did you get this plum assignment, Theo? Tyrone.
My brother, Billy, got me the job.
He's been workin' here for years.
So, Roxxon runs in the family, huh? Somethin' wrong? [indistinct chatter.]
No no, no, no, not at all, let's let's go.
So, you were the one who noticed the pressure? TYRONE: Yeah.
Yeah, but Billy said it always spikes before a kick.
God forbid you don't listen to Billy.
He's usually right.
I mean, he made engineer by the time he was my age.
So, that's your deal, huh? Trying to prove you're as good as him? Nah, he's helpin' me out, you know? [Tandy typing.]
So I don't have it as tough as he did.
That must be nice.
Isn't your dad the, uh Roxxon super genius? That doesn't give you a head start? Gives me a headache, honestly.
Most days, I'm not even sure I want to be here.
So, why not leave? My mom called in every favor she had to get me this job.
So, what are you saying? You don't like this stuff? - [Tandy continues typing.]
- Science? Physics? I used to.
I liked that it was black and white.
That every question had an answer.
Same here.
I try to remember that every time I think I got in over my head.
There's a sense to it right? [computer beeps.]
Holy crap These pressures - they've been building the past month.
- MINA: Was I subtle? You're not welcome! You're putting your whole crew in danger.
Who the hell do you think you are? Look, Mina, I-I you gotta listen to me Why do you keep talking to me like you know me? What, Nathan Bowen's little princess gets to act like we're best friends? No no, no, I-I I don't know why I My name is Dr.
Hess, as far as you're concerned.
And we've been up and down on the pressure ladder.
Dr.
Hess, with all due respect, the problem is much less the pressure, but the heat.
Am I asking roustabouts for advice now? No, he's right.
The heat is heading up, not spiking.
And it's climbing up your ladder, one rung at a time.
We can't stop drilling.
Oh, absolutely not.
Because if you stop that drill, three, very bad things are going to happen.
One: Structural failure of this whole rig.
And once the legs buckle, and the hull hits water, that's when you cause number two: A very large Not again Who are you?! Who is who? - [rumbling.]
- [alarm blaring.]
Um the heat is rising.
No - Something's not right.
- [workers panicking, indistinct.]
- [rumbling.]
- [steam spraying.]
- [warbling.]
- [all grunt.]
[man yelling, indistinct.]
You okay? [both grunting, groaning.]
TYRONE: Come on.
Come on, we gotta get out of here.
No, no, no, we can't, something's not right.
[panting.]
Help, please.
I can't move! [Mina and Tyrone grunting.]
Look, we have to get off this floor, okay? These these alarms only go off if things are bad.
- Kaboom bad.
- We need something to to pry her out, or Or to cut the What the hell is that? [static popping.]
[static popping.]
[soft rock music playing.]
Save the shorebirds! Sign the petition! Save the native shorebirds! [guitar playing continues.]
Excuse me, sir.
Um did you drop this? Uh, no I-I don't I don't think so.
Oh I-I-I thought I saw it fall out of your back pocket.
Not that I was looking at your butt or anything.
[chuckles.]
Nah, I di I didn't think that you were.
- Phew! - [Liam laughs.]
Uh, spare a second for the shorebirds? Hon, we're late for dinner? Uh, it it'll only take a second.
Did you know that the shorebirds have been dying off for 20 years? Wow, they have? Yeah, ever since Roxxon Gulf moved to Pensacola.
Bird erosion's a big problem.
"Bird erosion" that's a thing? Oh! LIAM: Are you - Are you all right? - Hon, we should go.
[stammering.]
I'm so sorry, I I've been out here all day, trying to meet my signature quota, and I-I guess I skipped lunch.
It's okay.
Y'know, birds are people, too.
I wish Birds can go anywhere, but the shorebirds, they choose here.
Someone's gotta look out for them.
[music continues.]
[Liam sighs.]
Thanks Liam Walsh.
[giggles.]
The shorebirds' knight in shining armor.
Hey, hon, wait! MAN [singing.]
: We shall meet on that beautiful shore In the sweet by and by No.
Not again [slows, distorted.]
: On that beautiful shore LIAM [yelling out.]
: Hey! You! - She stole my wallet! - [crowd murmuring.]
Where'd she go?! In the sweet by and by - What the - Drive! Uh no, crazy white girl.
Either get this car running, or I'll scream and get that cop's attention.
Or, you know worse.
[car starts.]
Good choice.
- [tires screech.]
- LIAM: Hey! Stop! COP: Get back here! Suspect is fleeing in a gray sedan There's a land that's fairer than day And by faith, we can see it, see it, see it afar For the Father waits Whatever happened to "drive it like you stole it"? When you actually do steal it, you drive the speed limit.
- Why are you in such a rush, anyway? - I don't know.
In the sweet by and by You didn't have to pull that knife on me, you know? I wasn't gonna throw you to that cop.
I was lifting wallets in Jackson Square and I don't usually get spotted.
You get enough cash? For your next fix.
- It's not like that.
- You pick at your arm.
My brother used to do that.
Went to prison a stereo thief, came out a drug addict.
"Used to"? Did he get clean? No.
In the sweet by and by [exhales.]
It's not right [hyperventilating.]
None of it's right.
[hyperventilating continues.]
- I can't trust anything! - Hey.
Okay, okay.
Take take a deep breath.
- What about me, can you trust me? - [gulps.]
Yeah.
You seem okay.
[steadies breathing.]
- So, how'd you get into boosting cars? - I don't know, life happens.
- I can take you to a hospital if you - No, no, no, no, I don't I don't trust those kinda places.
- Sirens, ambulances - What about family? What about 'em? [chuckles.]
So, what? The The world stole from you, so now you're tryna steal it all back? Credit card companies cover it all as P&L.
No one gets their feelings hurt - other than Mikayla.
- Who's Mikayla? The girlfriend How did I know her name? - Pshh, I don't know.
- She never said her name, Ty.
And neither did he.
I shouldn't know her name at all.
"Ty"? I didn't tell you my name, either.
[grunts.]
My arm! - They were - [sirens wailing.]
- Sirens.
- You hear 'em too?! [Tandy panting.]
- What're you doing?! - I stole this car, remember?! [sirens continue wailing.]
No, no, no, no not now! It's not real! [tires screech.]
[tires screeching.]
[sirens continue wailing.]
[laughs.]
I think we lost 'em! - [ominous humming.]
- [Tandy continues hyperventilating.]
- Look out! - [tires screech.]
[breathing quickly.]
Liam it's not real - None of it's real! - She's waking up, you have to put her back under! [whimpers.]
- Why the hell is she so strong? - ANDRE: I don't know.
But it doesn't matter.
Everyone has a breakin' point.
And we're close to finding hers.
[static popping.]
[static popping.]
[bluesy rock playing.]
Save the shorebirds! Sign the petition! And save the - The music - [man playing guitar.]
It's not right.
Sir? Excuse me, did you drop something? Uh no, I-I don't I don't think so.
Wait can you - spare a minute for the shorebirds? - Honey, can we help you? Hi, um, I'm flirting with your boyfriend to distract him.
MIKAYLA: What?! [ominous humming.]
Did you see that? Hey! Did you just steal my boyfriend's wallet? - What? No, I - Hey, what the hell are you Hey! Let go of me! Help! Police! She has a weapon! [panting.]
POLICE OFFICER: You! Hold it right there! Freeze! Put your hands up and drop the weapon! [indistinct chatter.]
[metal clangs to the ground.]
[alarm blaring.]
Wha where am I?! MINA: Bowen! Come on, this whole thing could go at any second! No, no, no, no, no, this No, this is all wrong.
Will you shut up?! We were doing fine until you showed up! It was all your messing around in the Core Room that led to this.
That doesn't make any sense! Why do you think you're smarter than everybody else? I mean, look at this! How many people does Bowen's baby have to hurt - before she realize she's - Shut up! The alarms the gauges they just spiked.
It's because of you.
It's because of all of your messing around.
Because of me.
I don't care that you're the daughter of the great Nathan Bowen You keep doing that! You keep throwing my dad in my face like you're trying to get a rise out of me, trying to mess with my head! - [rumbling, crashing.]
- [alarms continue blaring.]
Where are you? [panting.]
- Come on, where are you? - EVITA: Where's who? Whoever's doing this! Girl, how much did you have to drink? And what are you wearing? What's happening? What's happening? Where are you?! Tandy, why are you doing this? Why are you running around and screaming? - Mom Mom, this this isn't real.
- This is Ty's big day.
- Do not ruin this for him.
- [breathing heavily.]
Wha - [piano playing.]
- [guests murmuring.]
- Hey! Why are you causing such a scene? - Let go of me! [humming.]
- [gunshot.]
- NATHAN: No! You wanna start some trouble? Then you can start it somewhere else.
- [humming.]
- [electricity crackling.]
I am so sick and tired of you embarrassing your mother and me.
- After all we do for you! - Shut up! - [humming.]
- [electricity crackling.]
- What'd you just say to me?! - [power surging.]
You are just like your mother.
A useless, - good-for-nothin' drunk! - Shut up! - [electricity surges.]
- [whimper.]
[static popping.]
ANDRE: I wouldn't touch that.
The damage that fingerprints can do.
[quietly.]
: Okay Of course.
Lia tricked me.
She put me in that ambulance.
But she did it for you.
- Lia acts on her own accord.
- Bullshit.
You knew she was messed up and you used it, right? That's what all this is, right? Your collection of women's misery? [both grunt.]
Not misery.
Despair.
There's a subtle, but distinct, difference.
Technically, misery is defined as "a source of great distress.
" And how do you define "despair"? "An absence of hope.
" I know it firsthand.
The headaches got so bad I decided to kill myself.
I went to the water, and I climbed as high as I could.
It started rainin'.
I climbed, I jumped that should have been the end of it.
But then something happened that night.
The rig explosion.
Just like that, I was alive.
And the fates, as they would have it, gave me a way to make the headaches stop.
For a little bit of time.
So, what? You get inside people's heads make them feel pain, so it can take away yours? 90% of the time, the people that come my way, I help.
Give them counseling, choices, shelter.
But the other 10% they can't be helped.
- So, they help me.
- You're despicable.
About halfway through your bin.
There's a run that you went on last year, stealin' other people's hope No, I would never.
But, you did.
Kinda, right? [Tandy sharply exhales.]
What're you gonna do? [static popping.]
- [Tandy grunts.]
- Don't! [panting.]
[car engine starts.]
[tires screech.]
Brigid, no one picked up the phone at Tandy's place.
No, no there's there's no one matching her description at local hospitals.
No, I already wasted too much time sitting tight.
[sighing.]
[exhales sharply.]
- [door opens.]
- [footsteps descending ladder.]
Tandy! [chuckles.]
What happened? I found out who's moving those missing girls across the city.
We need to stop him.
You really think they'd come back here? TYRONE: Tandy said they didn't get that big a head start.
They weren't expecting me to get away.
And if they were rolling out, they'd need to cover their tracks first.
[siren woops.]
Sorry.
I called back-up.
I thought you said you were our back-up.
BRIGID: Tandy's barely standing.
The cops will handle this, I promise.
Fine.
Ty, look, you gotta get out of here before the cops see you.
What're you gonna do? You really think the police can stop him? [indistinct police chatter.]
I got you.
Going somewhere? - Tandy, wait - TANDY: I don't think so.
You sure? Good thing Mikayla came early for her first day back, huh? - We don't want to hurt her, just - [Tandy grunts.]
[Mikayla gasps.]
[panting.]
[gun cocks.]
Check yourself, Mr.
Johnson.
You wanna shoot? Then shoot.
- Tandy - Go ahead and pull the trigger.
- Ty will clean you up.
- Tandy ANDRE: Tandy, I was in your head.
I know this is all an act.
TYRONE: Now, come on the police are outside, you're done.
You think everything bad you felt in there came from me? That was all you.
You know you're worth nothin'.
You know you have no one.
Then I was wrong.
I have one person.
I came to that same conclusion.
[gunshots.]
[screams.]
Ty! Ty, Ty, Ty [breathing shakily.]
: Hey, hey, hey.
- Come on, get up.
- [Tyrone groans.]
- No, no, no, no, no, no come on.
- He shot me.
I know, stay with me, okay? Come on, get up! - Come on Ty! No.
- [Tyrone coughs.]
Ty, no! [sobbing.]
Ty! I ca I can't do thi I can't do this without you! - [sobbing.]
No - [hymn starts again, folk-country version.]
There's a land that is fairer than day And by faith, we can see it afar For the Father waits over the way To prepare us a dwelling place there In the sweet by and by We shall meet It's too late.
He's dead.
In the sweet [sobbing.]
I'm so sorry.
I'm sorry, too.
He'd still be alive if you hadn't brought him into this.
You hurt everyone you touch.
Now it's time to give up before you hurt someone else.
The melodious songs of the blessed And our spirits shall sorrow no more Not a sigh for the blessing of rest In the sweet By and by We shall meet on that beautiful shore In the sweet by and by We shall meet on that beautiful shore [singer humming.]
In the sweet by and by We shall meet on that beautiful shore She's ready.
In the sweet By and by We shall meet On that beautiful shore
