Nightflyers (2018) s01e10 Episode Script

All That We Have Found

1 Previously, on "Nightflyers" [OMINOUS MUSIC] - Do you know who I am? - Mr.
Eris.
We share a mutual desire.
I have a proposal for you.
Eris called me from the deck of the "Nightflyer.
" - He wants me to assemble a team.
- I'm happy for you.
It's it's just, it's - It's unexpected.
- The wave forms.
- Teke.
- You predicted that the energy coming off the Volcryn would match that of L telepaths.
You were right.
And we're right in the middle of it.
This is why the Sphere is working.
- Teke.
- Did you see something - in there? - I saw my daughter.
I can touch you.
You're real.
This Skye never got sick.
- No, she came back.
- I'm worried about Thale.
- [WAILS] - Every time we get near each other it's like a psychic feedback loop.
The closer we get to the Volcryn, the stronger it gets.
It could kill us.
Either one of us dies we both do.
There it is.
- The Volcryn.
- It's alive.
[SHAKY BREATHING] It spoke clearly.
It's waiting for us.
Cynthia? I promise the "Nightflyer" won't reach the Volcryn.
There's something wrong with the Terraform! The dome's gonna blow.
Brace for collision! [SCREAMING] [CYNTHIA'S VOICE] You did it, Auggie.
My little bear.
- Eris! - [SCREAMS] [SCREAMING] - [CACKLING] - [GASPS] [HOLLERS] - [SHAKY BREATHING] - I know this will be hard to understand, but my presence on the "Nightflyer" will kill you.
I have to break the loop.
I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
[SOLEMN MUSIC] [OVERLAPPING CHATTER] [ALARMS BLARING] [OVERLAPPING CHATTER] [AIR HISSING] [SHAKY, HARSH BREATHING] [FOREBODING MUSIC] [OMINOUS MUSIC] [OMINOUS MUSIC] [DISTORTED SCREAMING] [EERIE VIBRATION] [VIBRATION CONTINUES INTERMITTENTLY] [DISTORTED, RUMBLING VOICE] [WATER RUSHING] [EERIE LOW TONE] [TENSE MUSIC] [CYNTHIA'S VOICE] You stopped the ship.
- [GRUNTS] - Saved our lives.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] Now it's time to go home.
We almost have the ring rebalanced.
Give me one more cycle.
What about the crew? I'm their captain now.
You gave me back my life.
My home.
[APPROACHING FOOTSTEPS] When can we be together? Soon.
Finish the repairs.
Then we'll have time.
None of my business, Chief.
[FLASHLIGHT CLICKS] Who are you? Everything was a lie.
[WEEPING SOFTLY] I trusted you.
[SOMBER MUSIC] I loved you.
What did I love, Roy? What did I love? [SINISTER MUSIC] [GASPING] Cynthia.
[ALL SPEECH DISTORTED] Watch out.
Careful.
She's not me.
Karl.
[SHAKY BREATHING] Cynthia Eris is back.
I just saw her.
It was a projection.
I was on Deck 7.
It must mean that she's gaining access to the system.
- Damn it.
- Lommie never locked her away.
Not all of her.
She left a part of her in a little girl, and she's influencing people on the ship.
It's an anomaly.
Lommie.
You okay? I was, um I was inside the Crystal and when the Dome blew I I couldn't get out.
What about Cynthia? Mel thinks part of her might be free.
[EERIE WHISPERING] No, um, the the girl was just a fragment.
I cleared all that up and made sure the firewalls were secure.
When? Because I just saw her.
When I was down there.
She's gone.
This time for good.
Okay.
Could we just go back now? People have died.
The ship is damaged.
What can that thing possibly tell us? The Volcryn can change everything.
- It can change our entire world.
- You really believe that.
With all my heart.
The things I've seen, what I've been able to do because of them - What exactly did you see? - Different realities, different dimensions.
The Volcryn are the key.
The Teke energy they can open the doors for us Teke made you crazy.
Lommie! The machine I built with the memory sphere, it's only a fraction of what they can do.
Go see for yourself.
What about you? I don't want everything we've lost to be for nothing.
- We need to use Thale.
- I know, but it almost killed him last time.
It's too strong, and I don't know how to make it filter.
Before Rowan drained him he did it with the bees.
With the rabbit.
I'm gonna go talk to Rowan.
He's the only one that can guide Thale through.
Karl.
Rowan killed people.
We can't trust him.
I'm just gonna talk to him.
That's all.
[FOREBODING MUSIC] [CYNTHIA'S VOICE] Begin playback.
[MACHINE RUMBLING] Auggie? [SINISTER MUSIC] Take us home, please.
I'm sorry.
You're not the captain anymore.
[MACHINE WHIRRING] Give that thing To me.
[SCREAMS] Auggie, stop! [SCREAMING] [GRUNTS] [SQUELCHING] [CYNTHIA'S VOICE] What have you done to my ship? Spreading.
Infecting us.
[SCREAMING] Rowan? [KNOCKING ON DOOR] [KNOCKING] Rowan.
[KNOCKING] Look, Rowan, I don't know what happened to you.
I don't know why you did what you did, but I want you to know, okay? Agatha's dead.
She killed herself.
[WEEPING SOFTLY] - Rowan? - [WEEPING] She did it for Thale to release him from the psychic feedback! She did it for you.
How do you know? I was there.
[SOMBER MUSIC] I don't remember it all.
It was too much.
The Teke was amplifying everything! It was too fucking much! I'm so sorry, mate.
I'm so sorry about Agatha.
I know how much you loved her.
Karl, listen.
I've been studying the Volcryn.
I think their shift in morphology is actually an invitation.
They want to communicate.
I can help you.
Now that the feedback loop's broken Thale can do what we brought him here to do.
[PANEL BEEPS] [DOOR HISSES] [NO AUDIBLE DIALOGUE] [TENSE MUSIC] [MUTED ALARM BLARING] [CAMERA WHIRRING] [WHIRRING CONTINUES] Is that you? [CAMERA WHIRRS] Where are you? Roy? Can you hear me? [SIGHS] [SNIFFLES] [SINISTER MUSIC] [GASPS] The door.
[FOREBODING MUSIC] Use eye [SINISTER MUSIC] [PANEL BEEPS] Access denied.
Casualties have been triaged, Chief.
We lost six.
Another eight or nine are cycling through ReGen now.
How long until we're operational? Well, I got the ballasts moving now.
Give me, say, eight hours and we'll be able - to test rotation.
- Stay on the boys down there.
Sooner the better.
Auggie.
Need to talk to you.
You're not supposed to be here.
I need to talk to you.
[DISTANT ALARM BLARING] That thing out there has infected us.
It's bleeding, it's spreading.
- It's going up the walls.
- Cynthia, calm down.
Let's not be calm.
Not on my ship.
This thing is eating through the "Nightflyer" like a cancer.
If they find out you're alive we'll have a mutiny.
Let me get us to Europa, then you take the ship.
You can have control again.
We won't make it to Europa.
Even if we did, that thing will contaminate my colonies.
Everything I build, everything I am.
There's only one way to stop it.
I need you to disable the cooling systems.
- The thrusters? - Let them go critical.
The explosion would be catastrophic.
- Our entire crew - Yes, but the blast would vaporize it.
We could kill it.
[TENSE MUSIC] I have a life pod on Deck 7.
You'd take me with you? Of course, little bear.
We could start over.
Its membrane appears thinnest at its center.
It's acting like a flexible conductive sheath.
Movements are becoming receptive.
Those tentacles are reacting to our every movement and presence, so clearly it knows that we're here.
[ALARM BLARING] Thale! Thale! Where is he? You fucking bastard.
What are you doing? Stop! Karl, make him stop! You were there when she died.
I'm sorry! [SCREAMING] Thale! Thale.
Thale! Stop! You'll kill him! - [GASPS] - [HISSES] He's the only one who understands how the Volcryn works.
I need him.
I need to talk to you.
- Alone.
- [GROANS] [WIND HOWLING] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [WOMAN VOCALIZING] This is all in my head.
I'm stronger now.
Since Agatha left us.
All the Teke became focused on me.
And I can hear the Volcryn.
They're waiting for you.
They want you to come to them.
How do I get over there? [SIGHS] Cynthia Eris.
I don't understand.
- Cynthia's inside the crystal.
- No she ain't.
She's on the ship.
She's still in Lommie's body.
She's got a way off the ship.
- Some form of life raft.
- Yep.
That's your ticket, mate.
That's how you get to the Volcryn.
- What just happened? - We need to find Lommie.
I've been trying.
She's somewhere dark and hot.
I can't get a full image.
The engine rooms below Deck 7.
Need you to stay with Thale.
Help him focus on Lommie.
We're running out of time.
I'll explain.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] Karl.
Whatever happens, good luck.
Yeah.
You wanna get going, brother.
There ain't much time.
[SNIFFLES] [FLESH SQUELCHING] [GASPS] [WHIMPERS] [SHAKY BREATHING] [PANEL BEEPS] [PANEL WHIRRING, CHIRPING] Captain Roy Eris.
Identity confirmed.
[GASPS] [ENGINES RUMBLING] [METAL CLANGING] Chief! You shouldn't be in here! [ENGINES RUMBLING] [APPROACHING FOOTSTEPS] The ship is overheating! - I'm aware of that, Murph.
- You're gonna send the thrusters into meltdown! Go back to your station, Murph.
- I'll handle the thrusters.
- Just like you handled the pressure sensors in the Terraform dome? You're relieved of your duties, Murph.
Silas can take over your shift.
Not gonna be any more shifts are there, Chief? No.
[HOLLERS] [BOTH GRUNTING] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [DOOR WHIRRING] [EERIE MUSIC] [COMPUTER WHIRRING] [FOREBODING MUSIC] [LOUD BANG] Roy? Is that really you? [LIQUID GURGLING] [SHAKY BREATHING] [WEEPING] [LIQUID GURGLING] You two were made for each other.
Genetic freaks.
Mistakes blended with occasional strokes of genius.
- Lommie? - Lommie is gone.
Locked in the Crystal Matrix with my father.
You selfish bitch.
This ship, everything you built was for yourself.
So, what? So you could keep living? What about him? What about his life? Roy loves you.
- It tore him apart to put you - To what? To lock me away inside that crystal prison? Not very nice considering I made him myself.
- What do you mean, "made"? - I have devised the ability to live past my body's natural life.
But only physical beings have rights in our society.
I needed an heir to keep flying my ship and building my colonies.
Roy is a cross-sex clone of myself.
You did something to him, Mel.
You treated him like a person.
No one ever had before.
Not even me.
Of course, he could never love you.
Not in a real way.
I was never as skilled as Connie.
- Connie Brighthead? - She never mentioned to you where the root DNA for your coding came from? My parents.
They donated genetic material.
- I was enhanced - The reason there's a reason you and Roy are so close.
You're both part of me.
You're his sister, in a way.
[SHAKY BREATHING] [POUNDING ON GLASS] It's fitting you'll be together for these final moments.
Goodbye, my children.
[DOOR BEEPS, OPENS] [ALARMS BLARING] Warning: thruster temperature critical.
Core integrity compromised in T-minus 20 minutes.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] [ECHOING SCREAMS] She's in a room below Deck 7.
[AIR HISSING] She's behind you The other way.
[METAL CLANGING] [AIR HISSING] Fuck.
No, fuck this, man.
It's too close to the engines.
- It's too it's too loud - Karl, they can't burn you.
Ignore the noise.
- Push through it.
- [INHALES SHARPLY] Come on, Thale.
You can do this.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] [AIR HISSING] Warning: thruster temperature critical.
That's it, Thale.
Tell me what you see.
I can see her in her room.
It looks like Lommie but it fucking it ain't.
She's leaving.
- Okay, now lead Karl to her.
- Okay, okay, okay.
I got this.
I got this.
Take a right.
No, wait, stop.
Left.
Now turn around.
Behind you.
[PULSATING HUMMING] [TENSE MUSIC] [WOMAN VOCALIZING] [COMPUTER CHIRPING] [SINISTER MUSIC] Oh, fuck.
Come on, man, she's right behind you.
She's right behind you! Come on, turn around! - You're running away.
- So are you.
This ship gave you life and you're abandoning it.
You ruined all that by bringing us here.
You let that thing infect the "Nightflyer.
" You're the infection.
[GASPS] Kill me and Lommie has no body.
You're strangling your friend.
[GASPS, COUGHING] [BOTH BREATHING HEAVILY] You leave this ship and all your friends - are gonna die.
- No, they won't.
I'm leaving you here with them.
Launch sequence initiated.
[GRUNTS] You're crazy.
Where are you gonna go? I'm going home.
No! No! [LOUD CLANG] No! Launch sequence begins in ten seconds.
Ten nine eight seven six five four three two one.
[SCREAMING] [ENGINES ROARING] [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] [ENGINES ROARING] [RUMBLING] - What - Warning: - thruster temperature critical.
- What is that? Core integrity compromised in T-minus 14 minutes.
That's D'Branin.
He's gonna make contact.
[ALARMS BLARING] Which means we need to save the ship.
[TENSE MUSIC] [ALARMS BLARING] [APPROACHING FOOTSTEPS] He took the pod, Auggie.
We're trapped.
We're going to die on here.
You went down without me? I was waiting for you.
Auggie the pod was made for one person.
It was designed for me.
This is my legacy.
It's my talents that created this ship.
You are just a glorified truck driver.
Get Lommie off the bridge.
- You can't do this.
- Lock her in her quarters - and sedate her.
- This is my ship.
She's unstable.
Get her out now.
[GASPING] This is my ship! You can't do this! This is my ship! [DRAMATIC MUSIC] You fucking coward! You don't get to take the easy way out! You're the captain now and we need your help.
- [SHAKY BREATHING] - It's-it's over now.
There's no hope.
Well, I didn't come out here to die.
Now you listen to me.
You're gonna help us fix this.
The cooling system has been disabled.
You can't get the engines to stop overheating.
[DISTANT ALARMS BLARING] Wait a minute.
Wait a minute, wait a minute.
If we reset the thrusters it would bring the cooling system back online.
It's not possible to shut down the entire ship.
The "Nightflyer's" been programmed with fail-safes to keep the environmental systems online.
Unless you did it from the inside.
- Warning - I don't understand.
Thruster temperature critical.
- Lommie - Core integrity compromised - in T-minus 8 minutes.
- But we'd lose everything.
Heat, oxygen, any form of control.
It's better than four simultaneous nuclear explosions.
We don't have time to build a tether.
We can't get to her.
I know someone who can.
[WOMAN VOCALIZING] [ELECTRICITY ZAPPING] [SCREAMING] [SCREAMING] [CELESTIAL MUSIC] [CHOIR VOCALIZING] - Can you do it or not? - Do we have a choice? No.
If you can't reach Lommie we're all dead.
- You did it earlier.
- That's a bit different, innit, mate? The Crystal's way more complex - than a couple of tunnels.
- He's never gonna be able to find her in there.
Not enough time.
We'll see about that, won't we? Truck driver.
Warning: thruster temperature critical.
Core integrity compromised in T-minus five minutes.
[LONG EXHALE] [EERIE ZAPPING] There's too much.
[BOTH OWN AND LOMMIE'S VOICE] Mel.
I'm sorry.
Lommie? I can hear you, but I I don't know where I am.
We need your help.
We need you to shut down the "Nightflyer.
" The Crystal If it loses power We're gonna restart the ship.
We won't let you die in there.
It's okay if I do.
[SOLEMN MUSIC] - We'll try something else.
- Look, I can do this.
It doesn't matter what happens to me.
Yes, it does.
You were right.
The connections we make they're everything.
I love you, Mel.
I always will.
[HIGH-PITCHED RINGING] Lommie? Right, that's enough of all that soppy bollocks, innit? Yeah, she's gone.
Let's have everyone gather into groups.
Try and create a heat sink, insulate our bodies.
We won't have much time before she shuts the ship down.
Warning: thruster temperature critical.
Core integrity compromised in T-minus three minutes.
All Deck 4 personnel please report to the inner core.
All Deck 2 personnel, please report - to the mess hall.
- Get to the mess hall.
Bring everything to the mess hall.
Warning: thruster meltdown imminent.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] Everyone huddle together! Core integrity compromised in T-minus two minutes.
Stay close! Stay close to keep warm! Attention: full system shutdown in ten nine eight seven six five four three two one.
Full system shutdown.
[SOMBER MUSIC] Good afternoon, Professor.
I have a proposal for you.
My ship was designed to explore new worlds.
It was built to expand the human horizon across the solar system.
But this discovery, this singular opportunity to make contact with a higher power, to pursue a knowledge beyond our own A knowledge that could unlock our potential and save mankind itself There, there This is the Eris legacy.
That's not me And the "Nightflyer" can take you there.
I'll go Where I please [NO AUDIBLE DIALOGUE] I walk through walls [SCREAMING] I float on a leaf here I'm not here This isn't happening I'm not here I'm not here In a little while I'll be gone The moment's already passed Yeah, it's gone And I'm not here This isn't happening I'm not here Daddy, you're home.
I'm not here Yeah, baby.
Strobe lights I'm home.
And blown speakers I'm home.
Fireworks And hurricanes I'm not here This isn't happening I'm not here I'm not here
