Orphan Black: Echoes (2023) s01e07 Episode Script

The Dog's Honest Truth

I was just a means to an end.
What is this?
Don't lie to me.
- No
- Not now!
No, I can, I can explain.
I mean, what were you thinking?!
Wha-what are you doing here?
Hey, I just came for help,
don't try to turn this around on me.
No, you're, you
you can't listen to her.
She, she doesn't know
I don't need to listen
to a thing she says
to know she's telling the truth.
You can go now.
This is between me and Kira.
No. I need to talk to Kira about Jules.
- I spoke to her mother.
- Please leave.
She said they took her.
Please leave!
Okay. I will deal with it myself.
Whatever you're feeling now,
it does get a little better.
Am I a printout?
Please, Eleanor.
Am I a printout?
- I didn't want to lose you.
- Am I a printout?!
I'm sorry.
Did you think that I was
never gonna find out?
That you were gonna be able
to keep that secret forever?
You were sick, you were
You were so sick.
And we were experimenting
with medication
I don't want to hear it!
You didn't know who I was,
you didn't know who Lucas was,
and then
then you were gone!
And I was so scared!
And I thought
I thought, what if
what if I could have you back?
Death is not something
that you can just skip over!
I know! I know!
But when you woke up and you
opened your eyes
and you looked at me again,
and-and you loved me again?
You have always been
so afraid of losing things.
Of losing people!
But that's what makes life, life.
That's what makes it beautiful.
We were lucky.
We found each other, and I loved you.
We had a good life. But those things,
those kind of things,
they only come around once.
That's what makes them mean something.
They're delicate.
And apparently there's a teenager
out there, terrified.
I didn't know about her, I swear.
All because you couldn't let go!
All the shit that
you went through growing up,
you should've known better.
How much longer do I have?
I've been giving you a plasma treatment.
It's a Band-Aid, but I'm working
on a transplant technique
How much longer do I have?
Two years, maybe.
But I can make
the transplant work. I just,
I just, I just needed
a little more time.
Eleanor! Eleanor!
I love you.
The woman you loved
died two years ago, Kira.
I'm just some strange doll that you made
because you were too scared
to let go of her.
No, please.
Please don't leave me.
You knew that I was gonna have to suffer
through losing my mind,
my thoughts all over again.
I'm sorry.
At least they're not mine
to lose this time, are they?
I know this isn't what we talked about,
but I didn't say anything.
She just
she's smart,
like you said she'd be.
She figured it out.
I'm making excuses, I know. I'm sorry.
I mean, maybe I wasn't at my best.
I just didn't think
there was another one out there,
like me.
If you're disoriented,
imagine how she's feeling.
She wasn't ready.
It was your job to build trust.
To make her feel comfortable,
show her what we have to offer here.
She must be so scared.
Who wants to stay in some place
that scares them?
I'll fix this.
Find a way to engage her.
Then show me, okay?
I know we can do this.
How'd you sleep?
Fuck off.
I'm sorry about yesterday, okay?
- I shouldn't have lied to you.
- Apology not accepted.
Now move your shit
before you lose a toe.
I know you got your file.
Eleanor Miller, right?
If you let me,
I think I can make it up to you.
But the God's honest truth
is I don't know.
What I do know, though,
is where you came from.
It's not too far from here.
I can show you if you're interested.
Did you hear me?
Why should I trust you?
Every morning,
Darros feeds the tortoises
for 30 minutes, minimum.
So I borrowed his master key.
You stole it?
What he doesn't know
won't hurt him, am I right?
Oh, yeah. Right.
Ooh, God!
Jules' mother said that you were there
when she was taken away.
And you have quite the pedigree.
What exactly are you supposed to be?
Excuse me. I'm a psychologist.
So you read people for a living.
That's a good skill to have.
Can you read me?
Can you guess
what it is that I'm feeling?
Beautiful, right?
Yeah, that's definitely a word for it.
- So, this is where I was
- Born?
You and me both.
I know it seems mechanical.
But it's not so strange
when you think of all the different ways
people use science to conceive.
I mean, in vitro,
prenatal gene therapy, surrogacy.
I don't know.
This is pretty fuckin' strange.
So he can just print
anyone out whenever he wants?
I don't know.
I thought it was just to make me
but then I met you.
Oh, what are you doing?
Sometimes I like to just
lay in here and think.
Hey, um, did you know
that you have 49 days
between death and rebirth
if you're a Buddhist?
It's called "bardo,"
and it's when a soul passes on
from one vessel
and becomes reborn into the next one.
Like a cat or a bird or
A printout?
Did Darros teach you that?
He's a really smart guy, Jules.
Well, you would know, right?
C'mon in.
It's not like it's on or anything.
You want Jules. I don't have her.
Well, where is she?
She's with Darros at his compound.
You'll never get to her.
She's gonna start a new life.
It's what's best for her.
How do you know what's best for her?
I've known her, her whole life.
Everything about her, every thought
that went into shaping her,
it was all intentional.
You see, Jules is part
of something bigger
than you can possibly understand.
Bigger how? What does that even mean?
That Paul Darros is an exemplary man.
He cares about the whole earth.
Oh, yeah, he's a regular Ghandi.
He let you live this long, didn't he?
Tell me how to get to her.
You know what? You can shoot me,
but shooting me's not gonna
get you what you want.
She's with Darros now.
Which means she's untouchable,
just like he is.
No one is untouchable.
You know, you seem
kinda agitated, kiddo.
Have you considered therapy?
I was just gonna say
I'm, I'm really glad you're here.
Um, it's been pretty lonely,
there's not really anyone
that can understand
what this is like, you know?
How long have you been here?
Since I was printed.
Less than a year but feels longer.
And you've just been, like,
locked up like a prisoner?
It's not a prison.
Anywhere you can't leave is a prison.
Maybe. But, I mean,
this place, there's always
something cool going on.
You know, like, a million
new experiences every day.
I love new experiences.
You wanna try one now?
Um, yeah, sure.
Uh, what were you thinking?
Close your eyes.
Now think.
What's the one thing
that you want the most?
The one thing
The one thing.
He did it again?
Are you okay?
Don't worry about it.
If it keeps him away from you
We'll get through this
together, big brother.
Promise me.
I would not leave you ♪
In times of trouble ♪
We never could have come this far ♪
Mm-mm ♪
I took the good time ♪
I'll take the bad times ♪
I take you just the way you are ♪
facility power deactivation.
Ah, fuck it.
Hey. Hey.
I've been calling you for hours.
Rough night?
"That's it, that's your story."
Isn't that what you told me?
What do you want?
Darros has Jules on his compound.
Her fake therapist told me
he's got something planned.
I don't know,
something bigger, apparently.
Did Josh say anything?
Josh is dead.
He, uh
He killed himself last night
right in front of me.
Wait. What?
He rebuilt the printer for Darros.
He was scared. He was
He was really scared.
Are you okay?
Eleanor is just out there,
she's all alone, like you were.
So go find her.
I ca She doesn't wanna talk to me.
She doesn't wanna see me,
and if she doesn't
- take her medication
- What medication?
It's an experimental plasma medication
to delay the onset of Alzheimer's.
If she doesn't take it,
she'll lose brain function
that she will not get back.
Okay. Where do you think
she would've gone?
I will handle Eleanor
if that's what it takes for you
to get your shit together
and help me! But you will help me.
Look at me. You are going to help me.
This, all of this,
is because of you.
There's a kid out there,
right now, in danger.
And a billionaire with a human printer.
So I don't really care
how shitty you feel, okay?
All right, so where do you
think she would've gone?
- Hi.
- Hi.
Come on, come on.
What's going on, Tom? I need eyes.
Come on, let's go.
System's rebooting, Sir.
Go. Come on.
Oh, here we go.
reboot sequence complete.
Oh, man. All right, I got this.
I'll pick her up.
Shh! Shh, shh, shh, shh!
You hear that, Tom?
That's opportunity knocking
right here in this room.
If we follow Jules,
she might lead us to Lucy.
Oh, ye Okay, now I get ya.
Yeah, got it. Absolutely.
Um, do you want me to do
something about the boy?
I'll deal with him.
All right. On it.
I don't understand. You were sick?
I know, I know. It's hard.
Yes, I was sick.
But you were away
doing research at that lab in Berlin.
I wasn't.
You lied?
So the entire year that I was
away at school you were sick?
How could you not
tell me something like this?
She thought
We thought
We thought if we told you,
that you would end up
dropping out and coming home.
Yeah, but, but you're okay now, right?
I mean, obviously, you're okay now.
It's not that simple.
Mom. What's going on?
You're familiar with your mother's work.
I know you'd
tell me I was being silly
for talking to you like this
like you can hear me but, uh
I thought I could put everything
back the way it was.
And for a minute, I-I did.
She was
She is just like you.
But the thing I didn't see coming was
Was that I couldn't put myself
back the way I was.
Living through you dying
it changed me.
She was exactly the same,
but I wasn't.
I couldn't be, and
And that pushed her away.
Well, here's to
fucked-up families, right?
So now, um, I am going to
fix what I've done.
I know that's what you'd want me to do.
I think I, uh, uh
that I have to leave you here.
Hi! Oh.
Hi, hi.
Okay. It's okay.
I thought I made
my expectations very clear.
Show her what we're doing here.
Inspire her.
Convince her that this is the place
where her mind will develop
into something magnificent.
You did. I ju
Maybe I pushed you too hard.
Maybe you're just not ready.
I can do better.
A lot of time,
money, and energy
went into printing the perfect me.
A me expected to live up
to a legacy of ingenuity
and self-reliance.
But I guess every experiment
has a margin of error.
- What are you saying?
- Don't worry.
I'll find some other use for you.
Nothing is a waste.
We had a sister!
I saw her.
Clear as day in my mind.
Why didn't you tell me about her?
Thanks, friend. Stay safe out there.
No dogs.
Uh, he's not mine.
Who's gonna pay for that? Hey! Stop!
Now stay. Drop it! Drop it!
Just give it back.
It's okay.
It's okay. It's okay.
Gimme the bag.
Gimme me the bag. Gimme a break, pooch.
Come on. Help me out here?
Sure. I could.
But it'll cost you.
What are you doing here?
I'm looking for you.
Where's Kira?
Don't worry. She's not here,
but she is worried about you, though.
You know, I think
you're a little confused
and dehydrated, so maybe
we should call Mom.
Who Who is this?
This is my younger self.
It's what I've been trying
to explain to you.
But Additive doesn't
I mean, it's not even possible, is it?
It's nice to meet you.
Her name is Lucy.
So she's, what,
she's some kind of, some
Yes, I'm a printout.
I-I know it's hard to understand.
And you?
But this doesn't change
anything between us.
You're still my son
and I still love you.
Why are you telling me this?
Because we've always
been honest with each other,
and you deserve to know the truth.
The truth?
Okay, fine. Then what's the truth?
That the woman that you knew
as Eleanor, your mother
she died two years ago
when you were away at school.
Kira didn't want to live without her.
So she made Lucy.
And then she made me.
Okay. You have to leave.
- Lucas.
- Get out!
Okay. Come on.
He can't hear this now. Come on.
I said, get out, now.
- Please.
- No, I can't.
You can't be here.
You can't be here.
Hey. Let's go.
He's not ready to hear this.
Come on. We gotta go.
Come on. We gotta find Jules.
Hey, kid.
You hurt anywhere?
Nah. I'm good.
- You sure?
- Yeah.
What about him?
He's with us.
We've decided we're tired of running.
Come on, come on.
Don't worry.
I'll find some other use for you.
Nothing is a waste.
And you have no idea who she called?
She was only here three,
four minutes tops.
- All right.
- And after the phone call,
I kicked her out, and the dog.
- They headed north
- Wait.
- if that helps.
- She had a dog?
- Yeah.
- What kinda dog?
A stray, most likely.
They're all over the place 'cause
of the county shelter down the road.
- Down there?
- Yeah.
Called County Animal Shelter.
You got a security camera in there?
You know, you didn't have to tell him.
We've always been
honest with each other.
I couldn't lie to him about this.
I've been carrying this around forever.
I used to just stare at it and wonder
if he was mine.
If he was okay.
That was the day I tried to teach him
how to water the plants.
Not my memory.
Who cares whose memory
it is if it makes you happy.
I have only one memory.
Jules has the same one.
I'm young,
in a bathroom. There's a lot of blood.
Worst day of my life.
What happened?
My father
our father was clinically depressed.
Being alive was so hard for him.
You know, when you're a kid,
you think
if I was smart enough
or interesting enough,
maybe he could
Anyway, I came home from school one day
and found him in the bathtub.
He'd slit his wrists.
I'd always had this feeling
that, I don't know, I was
responsible somehow.
That's really what happened?
That's what happened.
Hey, Craig.
I'm kind of busy right now
Hey. It's me, I'm okay, I'm fine.
Oh, Jules, oh my God,
I'm so glad you're safe.
Where are you? I'll come get you.
Actually I have an idea.
I think it's time we start
fighting back.
Let them know they can't fuck with us.
Know the South East dockyards?
Yeah, I know where that is.
So how did you and Lucy meet?
And don't tell me she kidnapped you
and held you against your will
because that's kind of our thing.
Oh, Lucy was in a tough spot.
She needed somebody to be there for her.
So that's what I was.
I was there for her.
That sounds nice.
Everybody deserves a guardian angel.
I believe that.
Even freak show science projects?
You are a lot of things, kid,
but a freak show isn't one of them.
I saw the machine that made me.
I don't know if any part of me is real.
You know, where I grew up,
there was this, uh,
these little conclaves of Mormons.
The fundamentalist type
with the sister wives and the 20 kids.
And I remember how creepy it was
that they all had the same haircut
and wore the same outfits.
I didn't think of them
as real people at all.
And then one day,
this girl ran away from the flock
and moved halfway
across the country to Reno
became a singer.
You're not gonna tell me
that Mormon girl was you, are you?
What, with this voice?
What I'm trying to tell you
is it doesn't matter
where or what you came from.
It's where you're going that counts.
Oh yeah?
Where am I going?
So Xander and Darros
just ate lunch together.
I mean, I think it's super weird,
but Darros seems really happy
having his own "mini-me" around.
I really don't have
time to think.
Maybe this was a mistake.
Or maybe I'm just tired.
And every time
I try to speak up he's just,
"We have to be ready,
we have to be ready.
The date's coming up."
And I'm like, "Hey, ding-dong,
who built this machine?
Me or you?"
Come on.
Uh, hey, Emily? Uh, can we meet?
I need your help.
Oh, you're close.
Come out, come out, wherever you are.
Looks like a party.
What the
Good job, slobber monster.
We did it.
Hey, kid. What about him?
He's with us.
Come on! Let's go! Let's go!
Come on! Come on. No!
- Hey!
- Come on! Come on!
- Come back!
- Are you okay?
- Go! Just drive!
- Yeah.
We gotta move!
Are you all right?
- Yeah. Are you okay?
- Yeah.
Thanks a lot, Craig.
- Come on. Get in.
- Hey.
Thanks, Craig.
Jules, Eleanor. Me, me. Me, me.
- Hi.
- Are you the real deal?
No, she's another printout.
Well, at least we age gracefully.
