Marvel's Cloak and Dagger (2018) s02e08 Episode Script

Two Player

1 Previously on "Cloak & Dagger" Given that you murdered my firstborn in cold blood, we'll see if your value to Tyrone outweighs the need for me to end your life.
Leaving someone who hurts you isn't hard, Mom.
You just leave.
In the dociles, there's almost no activity in the anger and rage center of the cerebral cortex.
But in the aggressives, it's as if there's nothing but - Mayhem.
- That's what you do, right? You get inside people's minds, and you cause them pain? If you can't be merciful when you play God, what kind of God will you be when you ain't playing no more? Why don't we find out? ANDRE: You and Tandy live in different worlds.
Tandy! Ty? Ty! Hey, look at me.
Look at me, Ty.
(PAGES FLIPPING) MAN: Feel like my back's against the wall, man.
(HIP-HOP PLAYING) Three, feelin' that pressure (PINBALL MACHINE DINGING) Feel like I'm racing against the clock Feelin' the pressure to win Time runnin' out once again Loss of my friends Some of 'em turned into enemies Some of 'em down to the end (PINBALL MACHINE DINGING) (DINGING RAPIDLY) Feel like I'm racing against the clock It's like the war won't ever stop Rah, rah Bodies dropping on the block Well, well Who might you be? Feel like I'm racing against the clock It's like the war won't ever stop (THUDDING) Ty? Hey! Hey, Ty, look at me.
Tyrone! Come on, Tyrone! Ty! (DING!) Marvel's Cloak & Dagger 2x08 Two Player (INDISTINCT POLICE RADIO CHATTER) (POLICE RADIO SQUAWKING) NEWMAN: Started evaluating the hookers right now, but they're too freaked out to talk.
Uh, "victims".
- They're victims.
- Yeah, of course they are.
The owner of this motel, have we picked him up yet? Yeah, in here an hour ago.
Lawyers have already bailed him out.
OFFICER: At least someone took care of this place.
Crime scene? Damage? He's out of business now, right? DETECTIVE: Kid, it'll be open again in a month.
They don't call it the world's oldest profession for nothing.
I do whatever I can to make the bad things go away I'm beat up, alone Hi there.
You know where I could find some, uh, coffee around here? You thirsty, baby? (ELECTRICITY CRACKLING) Someone help me Screamin' out I'm down on my knees (GROANING) Are you sure you're okay to drive? I feel it in my bones The devil's at my door, so help me This will be the death of me EVITA: Hi there.
Tandy, slow down.
Auntie, you up yet? But but I'm not a doctor.
I don't What happened? For how long? Okay.
Okay.
Okay, I'll be there soon.
(WIND WHISTLING) (COUGHING) Hey! Hey, Ty! You're gonna be okay.
You're gonna be okay.
You're gonna wake up, and you're gonna walk out of here.
(FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING) Evita, over here! - Brigid.
- I just came from a torn-up motel that trafficked kidnapped girls.
Are the girls okay? They're holding up.
How about you? I'll live.
But Ty, on the other hand.
ADINA: Hello, Father.
I need a moment of your time.
Mrs.
Johnson.
Do you know what this place is? I do.
Then you know I'm not strong enough.
Not strong enough for what? To let in the person I let down.
I don't care about your feelings.
You still have a job to do.
Being a priest isn't a job.
It's a life.
And a life I failed at.
I couldn't protect him.
None of us could.
But I found a way we can save him.
Will you hear me out? For someone who's not a doctor, you're rockin' like one.
Yeah, maybe someday.
Your aunt's still not picking up.
But that's okay, right? You got this? I mean, I've watched Auntie do tons of things, but this, it's it's like Tyrone's transitioning.
Like his fight or flight response is broken.
This is what happens when Ty gets scared.
He opens a door.
And if he's not responding, maybe he's stuck.
Stuck? Where? Wherever it is he taps into.
Where your, uh, other mouse got sucked into.
- What, she's inside Ty? - TANDY: Yeah.
I followed her in there and landed at some crossroads where this Papa Mystery guy - Papa Legba? - TANDY: Yes, him.
And when I went inside Ty, all of this it looked like this.
I don't know, maybe this is Ty's way of telling us we have to go in there and get him.
Okay.
Papa Legba is a Loa.
Guardian of the Crossroads.
A Voudon God.
And Auntie's husband.
- Say what now? - Auntie's a Mambo.
Part of that means marrying a Loa.
- Like a nun marries God? - Kind of.
But not really.
This is his veve.
And, um Auntie always has me carry candy for Legba.
Says he has a sweet tooth.
But if you want something from him, he's gonna need an offering in return.
Good to know.
EVITA: Okay.
Papa Legba, we ask you to present yourself.
Please accept this offering.
In exchange, we ask you to show us the way.
Your children are here waiting.
A good man is suffering.
I give thanks to you and our ancestors.
We ask you to open the gates.
We implore you to show us the way in.
You're jumping into that? He would do it for me.
Okay.
Let's go.
Brigid, you don't know what it's like in there.
Let's go.
The daylight is over, it's getting much colder And the light is almost gone So this is where, where it begins We're just running for our lives From the very edge of time Will we make it out alive Make it out alive You're back for more.
So you come in all shapes and sizes, huh? Fuchs? TANDY: Fuchs? Hmm, I've seen part of you here before.
You refused to pay the fee that I demand.
This fee? Guess I got overcharged last time.
Okay.
This is where we find Ty.
Wait a second.
Where's the mall? - BRIGID: Did you say mall? - Yeah, it's all crazy here.
Tandy? FUCHS: Tandy Bowen has her path.
You came to walk a different one, didn't you? Ty? (ARCADE BELLS AND WHISTLES) Ty? FUCHS: Everything here is a trade.
To get what you want, know what you're willing to give up.
You here to win a prize, little lady? (CLEARS THROAT) Right, um I got some gum.
Oh, Spearmint! It's not really you, is it? No.
But it's nice to see you.
TANDY: Papa Sweet-Tooth sent me this way.
I'm here for my friend, Mister Baron Samedi.
I reside over the dead.
No, uh, Ty, he isn't dead.
Close enough.
He made his payment.
Payment? Well, what did he give you? His worries.
Then I'll pay his debt.
I can make it rain with worries.
(LAUGHING) That's what they sell you day in and day out, isn't it? That one thing is equal worth to another.
That burger is a dollar.
Love costs your body.
And that house? Just your soul.
Piece by piece by piece.
But every action has its own reaction, as much as we'd like to avoid it.
Isn't that right, Miss Bowen? What if I play you for him? (SIGHING) Tell you what: you play his game.
And if you can convince him to leave, I'll let you both go.
(8-BIT ARCADE MUSIC) But don't forget you in Samedi's house.
And the house always wins.
ADINA: This could save Tyrone, this could get justice for Billy, and this could bring down every corrupt officer in New Orleans if it gets into the hands of the FBI.
But I can't give it to them.
Because they'd ask how you acquired it.
And I'd have to, by law, answer them.
But a priest has protection against revealing his source.
Think of the good it will do for the community.
Everyone knowing that they can breathe.
I wish I could help you.
I do.
- Are you saying no? - I'm saying when I left St.
Sebastian's, I left my collar behind.
I'm not a priest anymore.
LIA (DISTANT): I could go and take my nursing aide test.
Find some way to take care of you.
I mean, unless you don't want me to.
Come on.
Let me drive.
Give me that! (TRUCK HORN BLARING) You okay? Lia I need more.
No! No, I can't go through that again.
I just need enough to get us someplace safe.
It will be the last time.
I promise.
(BROKEN VINYLS CRUNCHING) (VIOLIN PLAYING) (DOOR JAMMING) (VIOLIN MUSIC CONTINUES IN THE DISTANCE) - What the hell? - Shhh! (MUFFLED SCREAMING) Papa Legba, I call upon you to bring this young man, so near to crossing over, back.
Give me the sight to see what's ahead.
No.
That can't be.
(WIND WHISTLING) Auntie (GRUNTING ON VIDEO GAME) TANDY: Ty? I've come to take you home.
- Hey, Ty! - Sure.
Sure, I just I need to, uh I need to finish this.
Come on.
Listen, a lot of people are worried about Dammit! (SIGHING) Come on.
If I'm gonna beat this, I'm gonna need your help.
Okay.
Ready or not.
(FANFARE PLAYS ON VIDEO GAME) - Is that me? - It's just setting up the story.
TYRONE: Watch.
- (VIDEO GAME MUSIC) - - Radioactive heroin? - Hey, stop ruining it.
- Now let's go.
- GAME ANNOUNCER: Go! TANDY: Which button do I ah! Ty Baron Whatzit, he he says that if you come home with me then Get this one right here! We gotta beat all these guys to get to the next level.
(VIDEO GAME SOUND EFFECTS) - (TANDY GASPS) - Okay! Okay, it's over.
We did it.
- Listen, Ty - Not yet.
We got more to do.
That was just a warm up.
Ty, come on.
This is ridiculous! I mean, all of them are dressed the same! Okay, and the two guys I just took out just disappeared.
(BLOWS LANDING) Ty, come on! You have to come home! I'm a legend Greatest ever any tribe I'm a legend None of this even makes any sense! That's the point! It doesn't have to! There's no gangland ecosystems.
No street wars.
No more gray area.
No consequences.
We fight and we win.
(BOTH GRUNTING) I'm a legend Fine.
I'm a legend I ain't never gonna die I'm a legend Tandy! I'm a legend I ain't never gonna die - - Legend - - Legend I'm a legend (DOOR BELL RINGING) - What is this place? - Not the Garden City Mall, that's for damn sure.
MAYHEM: I spent so many weekends there.
Dad handed me cash, said, "I'll meet you in the food court in a couple of hours".
BRIGID: Yeah, and I blew it all on a manicure, because Mom always said you can tell a lady by her hands.
I'm not here to stroll down memory lane with you.
No, you're here to kill me or subdue me or something me, but we got bigger fish to fry.
Look.
There's a lot of girls in here.
MAYHEM: I thought you were a detective.
Those aren't just girls.
Those are the missing girls from the fliers.
That man in the suit, whoever he is I think he's the one that's taking them.
He comes in here, plays these records, and And makes them feel pain.
That music he was playing before it sounded like pure dread.
Maybe you are a detective.
He uses them up.
I don't know why.
And he can get to anyone.
Unless we can find something strong enough to stop him.
(WIND WHISTLING) (GASPS) Auntie, thank goodness you came! You got all my messages.
Now, child.
Don't be foolish.
I know you got my message in the shells.
I thought I read them wrong.
Don't cry.
It's my time to dance with the ancestors.
You'll see.
But now it's your turn to take my place as Mambo.
Auntie, no.
I'm going to college, and then I'm going to medical school.
(CHUCKLING) Child, that was just you being selfish.
Well, I'm allowed to be! Okay? All my life, they laughed at me for stinking up my purse with roots, giving those tours.
- Now I'm supposed to - You were born with the sight.
They chose you to be a voice, to guide people.
- Nothing else matters.
- Don't I have a choice? You have all the choices, child.
You always have.
But only one will save your man.
But if I do, then I have to Marry a Loa.
One with dominion over the dead and dying.
You choose whatever you choose.
Just do it with that head held high.
Like you always do.
Auntie, I DELGADO: Sometimes I feel like my collar, my calling, was nothing more than a prison ball and chain.
I killed a girl, Mrs.
Johnson.
And to atone, I was supposed to look out for your boy.
You know what my last words were to Ty? "Just go.
Now".
And you think that there's a price to pay, because there are consequences to our actions.
Yes.
They destroyed my boys just for living their lives.
Men who were supposed to "serve and protect".
And for every corrupt cop, there's a politician just as heinous.
- There are no consequences - There has to be.
If we don't have faith that this world that we can get better, we won't.
We won't.
You really believe that? Yeah.
Good.
That's the man my son needs now.
I can't just take the files.
In the eyes of the church, your information is only considered privileged if you make confession.
Mrs.
Johnson, do you have something you want to confess? Level Two is about making it across to the next door.
That's easy enough for you.
You can just poof up there.
Yeah, but what fun would that be? Come on, Tandy.
After everything, haven't we earned it? Look out! (ENERGETIC ELECTRONICA MUSIC) (BOTH GRUNTING) (THUGS GROANING) (DAGGER SWISHING) (THUGS GROANING) - What? - You're really good at this.
Damn right! You know, I was never much of a gamer, but I'm starting to think I missed my calling.
Wait, this (BREATHING SHAKILY) - We're back at the - Motel.
(FOLKSY GUITAR MUSIC) I'm gonna lose my mind Might not make it out this time I'm choking on every breath They tell you that life's not fair Well it's not heaven I'm looking for But I can't take this mess no more If the water keeps rising high I won't make it out alive - - In over my head - In over my head - I been locked up, knocked down Pushed around, scared as hell Ty, let's go back.
No, we can't.
In over my head - (ALL GRUNTING) - (BLOWS LANDING) They just keep coming.
Ty I don't want to do this.
I can't do this! Last time you were alone, but this time I'm not leaving you.
Okay? We're gonna fight and we're gonna win! (GRUNTING) - In over my head - (SQUELCHING) (BREATHING SHAKILY) Just cut through it.
We're almost there.
(BREATHING HEAVILY) Ty Ty, this is a waste of time! You have to stop playing! No, Tandy, the screen said we had to break down the walls.
All right? We fight through this.
This is how we win.
Who knows? Maybe Maybe this is just all in my head.
- (THUGS GRUNTING, GROANING) - (PUNCHES LANDING) (GRUNTING) Are you okay? - Yeah.
- (TRUMPET PLAYING) How many more rooms do we have to go through? Just one.
It's the boss level.
All right, Tandy.
Let's kill him.
Tandy? Jesus.
You chewed these things to shreds.
Anxious about something? What color is that? Poison.
Literally, that's the name.
What can I say, I have a brand.
We used to choose the craziest colors.
Glitter Bomb Gold and Unicorn Puke.
Yeah, and then Dad would see them and say something like, "Oh, my little girl is a smurf today".
Or some other lame dad thing like that.
Dad was good at being a lame dad.
(NAIL FILE SCRATCHING) Ow! What? You don't see the way the world is.
Dad only took us to the mall so he could flirt with that bookstore manager.
Yeah? And you can't see that Dad took us to the mall because everything about the house reminded him of Mom.
Hey.
Easy.
The man was two parents to four kids.
He deserved some happiness, even if it was with a bookstore manager.
Your perspective is warped.
You only see the bad and come at it.
The problem is, right now, I think the world might need someone like you more than it needs someone like me.
You know what I saw today? A motel where those girls from the fliers ended up.
And the one who did it? The man in your record store? I'm not gonna be able to catch him without you.
I'm not gonna be put in a box just to be brought out whenever we have road rage or another dead boyfriend.
I don't wanna put you in a box.
I just need you to listen sometimes.
So what are you saying? I'm saying you get to drive.
What are you fighting for? Get ready for the war, get ready for the war What are you fighting for? Everybody's looking for a hero Everything is swallowed by the shadows Get ready for the war Hey.
Just so you know, your game sucks.
Don't hate the game, hate the player who chose it.
(MALE CHORUS CHANTING) (MAN SINGING IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE) In this world and the ones unseen, always in faith of Voudon TYRONE: Why'd you stop? Now to win we have to go all the way back to the beginning.
- Who cares? - I do! Look, I'm tired of losing, Tandy! I'm tired of working our asses off just to tie.
EVITA: For the rest of my days I am yours.
- Did it work? - TANDY: But it's not real! Ty, come on! You have to come back! Where we can lose? Where the only payoff is pain? Why? (WIND WHISTLING) (DRUMS BEATING) TANDY: You know what's real? You're dying, Ty.
What about your mom? What about Evita? What about me? Why did you come to that motel and try and save me? Because I couldn't imagine my life without you.
TANDY: I did.
Andre he made me see you dying in front of me.
And the one person in the whole world who understood me was gone and it was my fault.
He messed with my head, too.
Made me feel like you never cared about me.
Like it was all just an act.
You know, maybe you're right.
Maybe it is better to ignore everything.
All I know is I'd rather fight a hundred times with you than one time without you.
To have and to hold So if you're staying here In sickness and in health so am I.
(WIND WHISTLING) SAMEDI: (CLEARS THROAT) Well, what will it be, boy? Face the harsh world or keep it cozy with your friend? I - Oops.
Too late.
- You can't! A boy dawdles, and the decision is made in his stead.
Look.
- Wait, what is that? - A wedding bouquet.
And you, my boy, are the bride price.
A life for a life.
The bouquet for the cloak.
But I (STAMMERING) I don't understand.
Time for you two to scat and take your friends with you.
The missus like a clean house.
- (GASPING, BREATHING HEAVILY) - Ty! Ty! Tandy? It worked! Ty, are you okay? - Yeah, I think so.
- Well, thank Christ for that.
Brigid! You made it out! Well, I couldn't help it.
Just rode the tsunami.
I saw him.
In the record store.
I don't know his name, but you do.
Andre Deschaine.
He's probably already on the run by now.
Good, I like them running.
I like them scared.
Hey Brigid did make it out, right? Sure.
She's in here, too.
ADINA: Bless me, Father, for I have sinned.
It's been seven years since my last confession.
But today I have something to confess.
The man who murdered my son and framed my other son for murder I held him captive.
The overhead light's out, so use the switch by the sink.
(SIGHING) Thank you.
ADINA: He gave me the information I needed to clear Tyrone's name.
He gave me the location of my other son's body.
All he wanted was forgiveness.
DELGADO: Mrs.
Johnson What did you do? (LIGHT SWITCH CLICKING) (GUN FIRING) This is why you needed a priest? To confess to murder? You came to me talking about faith and forgiveness Tyrone needs your faith.
Tyrone needs someone to make his case to God.
Me? I just need a priest.
(HUMMING TRUMPET NOTES) (SIGHING): Oh boy.
Of course.
(HUMMING TRUMPET NOTES) (ENGINE STARTING) (CONTINUES HUMMING NOTES) (INDISTINCT POLICE RADIO) TYRONE: Evita Mom? Mom? The Devil tells a lie As we eat, we breathe We dream, we dream While angels pass us by As our eyes stay blind to everything We all got our demons Living under our skin We all got our reasons For the ways that we live (CRYING) We all got our demons Living under our skin We all got our reasons For the ways that we live We all got our demons Whoo-ooh Whoo-ooh ooh We all got our demons Whoo-ooh Whoo-ooh ooh (SOBBING) We're gonna get him, you know that? We all got our demons
