Orphan Black: Echoes (2023) s01e10 Episode Script

We Will Come Again

Okay, the resin cartridge is loaded.
Twelve anonymous scans.
Darros didn't choose them at random.
Well, they won't be
anonymous much longer.
I'm so sorry. I tried to stop him.
It's okay. It's not your fault.
- Is Craig okay?
- Uh, yeah.
He's gonna be fine. He's with PJ.
Um, did Tom say anything else?
Did he say what they want with Charlie?
Just said he was looking for you.
That he needed to prove
himself to his boss.
If it's me they're after, they
have no reason to hurt Charlie.
You don't know that, do you?
Okay, so here's what I know.
Charlie is alone with a very violent man
that she can't communicate with.
She's she's terrified.
I know. I am so sorry.
If it's me they want,
I'll give myself up.
You said we were gonna be safe!
It's Charlie's.
It's him.
He wants me to meet him tomorrow. Alone.
Mornin', sunshine.
You finally sober?
What was it like to have a family?
It was cool, sometimes.
Sometimes, it was
a huge pain in the ass, but
it was nice
I guess, to have people.
They didn't really feel like
my people, though.
Lucy and Eleanor are kind of
the first thing
that feel like family to me.
It looks nice.
Yeah, it does.
I saw myself die.
- What?
- From the drug last night.
I saw me
Another me.
But I had something
really wrong with me.
And Darros
He didn't care.
I don't understand how I
could've seen something like that.
I thought I was just a copy
of him when he was younger,
but this memory
it was recent.
That doesn't make any sense.
How could I have wanted to be
someone who could do something like that?
You were trapped in
Darros' demented dollhouse.
It was the only thing
that made any sense to want.
I haven't heard back from Lucy at all.
I need to make sure Craig's okay.
I'm so sorry. About what happened.
Yeah, randomly shooting
someone isn't cool.
I know you didn't mean
to hurt anyone, okay?
Just stay here.
I'll be back.
It's not like I have
anywhere else to go.
- Oh, man.
Wow, man.
Look at you.
Can I? I just want
to take a minute. I mean
This has been a long time coming, huh?
Where is she?
The girl? Oh, not here.
Take me to where she is.
Okay, oh, okay, but I was
thinking about getting a latte
'cause I'm pretty sure that
it's pumpkin spice season.
It's just
- Where is she?
Or you know what? I'm thinking about
Hear me out on this one.
Why don't we get that new
gingerbread cookie one, right?
I mean, you know, you only live once
and it's probably pretty gross.
Take me to Charlie. Now.
There she is.
There she is.
There's the deranged psycho
printout I've been looking for.
Well, I guess it's time
to have the talk, then.
Um, and, listen, between us,
I would like nothing,
and I mean nothing more,
than to take you out
behind this building,
shoot you in the back of
the head and call it a day,
but, apparently,
that's not what my boss wants.
What does he want?
He wants the girl. He wants Jules.
He can have me.
No, it's not negotiable.
Hey, I mean, look, dude,
I am so with you.
I mean, you seem like
the much bigger issue,
certainly for me, personally,
but you know,
this is all about
what the big man wants.
What does he want with her?
Does it matter?
All you need to know is if
you want to see Charlie again,
you have to bring me Jules.
Uh-huh? You sure I can't tempt
you with a pumpkin spice latte?
It's the season.
12 scans and 11 faces.
Did you have any luck with the last one?
No. The file's still unreadable.
Maybe it got corrupted when
we pulled it off of the server farm.
You know, if we had access
to a public database,
we could ID them.
Laney is doing a longitudinal study
on income inequality.
She has access to the US
Census tracking data.
Great. I'll call her.
- I'll get it.
- Hi.
- Uh, come in.
Thank you. Hello, Dr. Manning.
Rhona. Is everything all right?
- Is Lucas okay?
- He's fine.
I just need to talk to you for a minute.
So, uh, Rhona,
I'm a little busy right now.
Lucas told me about Eleanor.
I am so sorry for your loss,
Dr. Manning.
That must've been incredibly
painful for you.
Thank you.
I think I mentioned my dad
passed when I was little,
so I can imagine what kind of
a hole it left in your life.
So hard to fill, isn't it?
It it is.
But I want you to know, I understand.
- You do?
- Completely.
If I had the ability you have,
if I could print another person,
have them back in my life.
So I brought something with me.
What is that?
It's my dad.
- Your dad?
- Yes.
I found a scan from his 20s.
Right before his car accident.
I want you to print him for me.
Rhona, even if I wanted to help
I disabled the printer.
It doesn't exist anymore.
- That's disappointing.
- I know it
It sounds easy, you know,
getting him back.
But it is so much more complicated.
And the
You know, the best thing that we can do,
and I know, I know
it is incredibly hard,
but the best thing that we can do
is just let go.
I didn't want to do this.
It's not who I am.
You need to understand
how important he is to me.
(LUCAS, ON PHONE): First time
a friend from church told you
his mom printed his other mom?
(RHONA, ON PHONE): But how
can I mean, this machine
I don't understand.
It just prints people?
(LUCAS): It prints, like,
copies of people.
(RHONA): From what, their DNA?
(LUCAS): Their medical scans.
Human cloning is a crime.
I know how difficult it would
be for your family if this came out.
I'm sure you can get that
printer back up and running.
Because I can't let go, Dr. Manning.
Believe me, I've tried.
I'll be in touch.
Jesus Christ, Lucy!
You gotta text me back.
Hey, what are you doing here?
I went to Settlement because
I didn't hear back from you.
Craig told me everything.
Charlie must be terrified.
- What did Tom say?
- Tom?
Can I just talk to you for one
second in the other room?
Hold on! Okay, what are we gonna do?
Yeah, I just I just need one second.
- What happened?
- I got there.
- He didn't have Charlie.
- Where is she?
I don't know. I tried to give myself up.
I told him to take me instead, but
What does he want? It can't be money.
It's her.
- What?
- Just keep your voice down.
It's Jules.
Darros wants to trade Charlie for Jules.
- What does he want with her?
- I don't know.
I can't just give her over. She's a kid.
She's a kid? What about my kid?
How are we gonna get my daughter back?
He said to meet him at the
Nature Museum in an hour,
and we'll do the exchange.
Fine, then we call the police.
No. He said no cops.
- Give me your gun.
- Jack, no.
Fine, then I'll take Tina's
and you can stay here with Jules,
if that's what you want to do.
What are you going to do?
I don't know.
I have to focus on the bigger problem.
I have to focus on Darros.
Rhona isn't just gonna go away.
I know.
And if it comes out?
Then, I'll
I'll just have to accept
the consequences.
What if I'm not ready for
the world to know who I am?
I'm not even sure that I know.
And you have to tell Lucas that
his girlfriend is extorting us.
Oh, look, it'll break his heart.
You can't keep protecting him
from everything, Kira.
I know.
I know. And, and
And I will.
Is, uh, is Jules downstairs with Xander?
I wanna ask her if she
recognises any of the faces.
I haven't seen her this morning.
Don't hurt her.
Just get over here and I won't.
Let's do this. I don't have time, okay?
I'll be okay.
Enough, get outta here.
Come on.
Come on, come on, come on.
Lucy's phone's going
straight to voicemail.
Jules isn't answering my texts.
She said she told you
where she was going. (PHONE CHIMING)
- Oh, Jesus.
- Kira, I just got an alert
on my phone. Darros is on the news.
(TELEVISION): Here to give us
a preview of what we can expect
at tomorrow's important event.
Yes, Charlene, I, uh,
I'm very excited.
At the Darros Foundation
Summit tomorrow,
we will be revealing a series
of new charitable initiatives
aimed at tackling
society's challenges
through scientific innovation.
And, I'm telling you,
it is really ground-breaking
stuff, in my humble opinion.
Maybe this is what Josh was
talking about, the launch date.
(TELEVISION): Very important
research, and I know we're all
looking forward to seeing
what comes out
of the summit tomorrow.
Any details you can share
at this time?
I'll take these out to the car.
Uh, yeah, thanks.
- I'll be right out.
- Okay.
- You'll be okay?
- Yeah.
Tina put out some feelers.
She says a friend from Buffalo
can get us across the border tonight.
I'm sorry I couldn't take care of you.
I really wanted to.
Bad timing.
Will I ever see you again?
Being around you
I have to keep her safe.
Yeah. Yeah.
You've been looking for who
you are for a long time.
And, um
Maybe you didn't think
that you'd find, like,
people who were actually you.
- Okay.
- But you did.
It's okay for them to mean something.
You and Charlie mean something too.
I know we do.
I've never asked you, but uh
Why'd you call yourself Lucy?
It was an old kids' book.
"Lenny and Lucy". (CHUCKLING)
It was in the rec room
at the Settlement House.
I didn't read that one.
Well, it's about a little boy
and he has an imaginary friend.
- Mm.
- And he builds her
out of blankets and pillows.
And he calls her Lucy.
And she came to life.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Take care of yourself, okay?
And good luck with Jules.
He wants you in here.
What, no reishi tea welcome?
I can't believe she gave herself up.
I couldn't get there
in time to stop her.
You have to tell me everything
you know about Darros' compound.
I need to find a way in.
I've only been there a few times.
It's very tightly controlled.
Most of his security team
will be with him at the summit tomorrow.
What the hell is he doing here?
I can help you get inside the compound.
Why would I trust you?
Because you care about Jules.
And I do too.
Darros has manipulated all of us.
How much time would you need?
If Darros is offsite,
then we have a chance.
Once he gets back to the compound
with his full security detail,
our window closes.
I'll go to the summit tomorrow.
Keep him there, talk to him,
try and buy us some time.
Find out what this launch is all about.
And you think he printed
12 other people?
Yes, I'm waiting to get access
to the Census Database,
so I can try to make IDs.
They're all teenagers
like Jules and Xander.
Well, 11 of the 12 we know of.
And given the resolution of the scans,
none of them have any long-term memory.
So none of them know who they are.
It's time.
Here's a coat of Lucas'.
I think it's gonna be cold today.
Thank you.
When you get to the compound,
can you do something for me?
If you can access the printer,
there's a way to disable it.
You know, what happened
to you and Jules and Lucy,
we have to make sure that it never
happens to anybody else again.
All right. I'll do my best
to delay him at the summit.
Um, if you need to stall him,
there's something that you
should ask him about.
You okay?
- Your mom called.
- Um, uh, yeah.
I just broke up with Rhona.
I can't even say it. She
She tried to get Mom to print her dad.
I don't understand
how she could do this.
I think that when you lose someone
you're not
Grief changes you.
I'm sorry for shutting you out.
You have nothing to apologise for.
Look, I don't know
if I'm gonna get to a place
where you're
my mother.
But I miss the person
who's been in my life
for the past two years.
- Me too.
So what now?
Are you gonna stay here with Mom
after everything that she's done?
I don't know.
What would you do?
If you were me?
I know Quakerism isn't your thing.
But what I like about it
is that what matters,
what's meaningful,
is in other people.
In connection.
- Mm.
- So, you know,
if that's something
that you can find with Mom,
then maybe it's worth holding on to.
Thank you.
Yeah. I, uh
I gotta say, Tom, you, uh,
you surprised me.
Well, thank you, sir.
Uh, thank you. I'm just
I'm just really glad that
I could get her back for you.
You know, I have this theory
that some people
are only at their best
when things around them
are at their worst.
Hm. Well, yeah, um, uh
- Yeah, I'm just not sure
- Yeah, maybe that's something,
uh, you should keep in mind. Hm?
Negative inspiration.
No, I didn't catch that.
I'm kidding. No, I can totally hear.
It's just that, I mean,
it looks like dog food, but
Oh, it looks like we have
a visitor at the south gate.
Let's see what he has
to say for himself.
(ELEANOR): Let me imagine
that we will come again
when we want to,
and it will be spring.
You, um
You left without saying goodbye.
I, uh, I knew I'd disappointed you.
And yet here you are.
I didn't know what
it was like out there.
And it was so lonely.
I bet now you're gonna tell me
how much better you had it here, right?
I didn't appreciate
all that you've given me.
- And I should've been grateful.
- Mm.
I, uh, I saw what happened
to the first version of me.
I know you had to let him go,
and that must've been
really hard for you.
- It was.
- To be the strong one.
The one who survives.
I understand that.
And I think you made
the right decision.
And you shouldn't have to
carry that burden on your own.
Why should I trust you?
Because I came back for you.
You're my family.
Sir, helicopter's ready.
You can stay
on the groundskeeper team
For a trial period.
Thank you, sir.
We don't have much time.
Let's go.
Oh my God.
You're okay.
Where's Charlie?
She's someplace safe.
Come on. We gotta go.
Come on.
We are so excited to announce a slate
of new initiatives
that will foster partnerships
between the science
and humanitarian efforts.
It's my pleasure to welcome
the Chief Executive Officer
of the Darros Foundation, Paul Darros!
Thank you.
Yeah, this is a very special
evening for the Foundation.
Thank you all so much for being here.
The Foundation's
flagship project this year
is something that I am
extremely proud of.
We conducted a national search
to identify some very special kids.
These exceptionally
high IQ teenagers
living in the foster system.
The young people,
in difficult circumstances,
who have everything that it takes
to change the world up here.
But who have been denied access
and support and the resources
they need to succeed.
That's where we come in.
The Foundation has placed
these exceptional individuals
with incredible adoptive families,
and we've pledged to provide
them with the best education,
anything and everything
they need, in perpetuity.
I believe the Foundation, by investing,
not only in cutting-edge technology,
but in human potential
in the limitless capacity
of these 12 minds
That's how we achieve greatness.
This way. This'll take you
down under the property.
Keep going. You'll get to the garage.
Lucy! Look.
With the right support, who
knows what they can achieve?
A cure for cancer.
A remedy for climate change.
(PHONE RINGING) An end to world hunger.
- These kids
- Hey.
I know who they are, Kira.
An astrophysicist,
a mathematician,
a supreme court judge
Ailee Hopkins, the Nobel Prize
winner in Economics.
They have remarkable intelligence.
- All of them?
- All of them.
They're the most talented minds
of the last generation.
Ladies and gentlemen,
it is my extraordinary privilege
to introduce you to just
a few of our superstars,
the kids of the Genius Project.
Is that what he's been doing?
Are those kids prints
of the scans we found?
So twisted.
Hey, we should go.
- Come on.
- I'll catch up.
- What? No.
- I have to disable the printer.
Kira told me how.
You go on ahead.
I'll find a way outta here on my own.
Good luck.
It's ready to go. We can head
to the copter any time you want.
Good. Dr. Manning, we were just leaving.
I need to talk to you. Alone.
It's okay, Tom.
Uh, everybody, if you could, uh,
if you could just give us a second?
So, um, what'd you think of the speech?
How could you do this?
I'm trying to make the world
a better place, Kira.
By printing out kids
who have no idea who they are?
By manipulating their lives
and lying to them?
Let's just look at this
situation, all right?
Lucy was a blank slate.
You saw her as a failure.
But what a beautiful mind.
What an amazing machine
she has in there.
You couldn't see the potential
of your own work. But I did.
So I printed Jules.
Here. No, no, no. Here.
She was your test case.
Eleanor's mind at 16,
at its most plastic.
Ready to be taken in any direction.
And she was so brilliant.
So creative.
I mean, honestly,
she was the inspiration
- for this whole project.
- She is a child, Paul!
Can't you see it?
All these kids,
they're exactly the same.
Pure potential.
No baggage.
I found the greatest minds
of the last 50 years
and I've brought them home back to us.
Isn't that incredible?
And where are they?
Have you brainwashed them too?
No, no, no, no!
They're safe.
We've placed them in very loving
homes all over the country.
Is this where they
Oh my God.
Kira, listen to me.
We could work together on this.
Think of it.
Think of what we could achieve.
What they could achieve.
It is completely unethical.
But not when it came
to your own wife, right?
Listen to me.
These kids are the ultimate
agents of change, Kira.
What if just one of them,
just one, cured cancer?
Saved millions of lives?
Wouldn't that be worth it?
Anyways, I gotta go.
A million or just one?
What are you talking about?
Well, your sister, Paul. She, uh
- You know, she died pretty young.
- How do you
Zora has nothing to do with this.
She's not one of those teenagers?
No, of course not.
And you're not hoping
one of them can find a cure?
Fix her?
'Cause she was sick, right?
That's where you and I
differ, Dr. Manning.
- Oh, yeah?
- You can't let go of the past.
I only think about the future.
Now, I really do gotta get going.
I don't like to keep
the helicopter waiting.
It's bad for the ozone layer.
Oh my God.
This is the guy they told me
was my grandpa.
They brainwashed these kids,
just like me.
Darros is on his way right now.
What are you doing?
We need to find them.
These These pictures,
they they could be clues.
They could help us find
where he's stashed them,
who their families are!
Look, I know you want to help these kids
and I do too,
but we really have to go now!
You found me, Lucy!
You told me who I was!
If you hadn't done that
I used to wake up every day and
feel like I was living a lie.
We need to help them.
I know. You're right. Okay.
(ELEANOR): "Let me imagine
that we will come again
When we want to
and it will be spring
We will be no older
than we ever were
The worn griefs will have eased
like the early cloud
Through which the morning
slowly comes to itself
And the ancient defences
against the dead
Will be done with
and left to the dead at last
The light will be as it is now
in the garden
That we have made here
these years together
Of our long evenings
and astonishment"
What are you doing?
I'm starting something new.
With me?
I, uh, I still haven't heard from Lucy.
Me neither.
I, um
I sent the last scan,
the one that was corrupted,
to a friend of mine
so he could clean it up.
I got an ID.
Well, who is it?
It's you.
Hey. Who's this?
I don't know.
If it's another printout, we
can't just leave them in there.
It's so good to finally meet you.
I've heard so much about you.
Leave us alone, you sociopath!
I mean, just look at you, Jules.
So much potential.
I'm taking her and
we're getting out of here.
I tried to nurture that.
A loving family, the best school.
I even tried to tell you
who your prime was, right,
because I wanted to inspire you.
You're printing people.
Playing with their lives,
like they're dolls.
See, now that right there,
that's the problem.
Things would've worked out
if you didn't fill her head
- with all these ideas.
- They're not ideas,
- it's the truth about who we are.
- No. No.
You corrupted her.
Jules was perfect.
It really is too bad.
But luckily, there is a creative
solution to every problem.
Why not just kill me?
See, I got this theory, Lucy
that some people are only at their best
when everything around them
is at their worst.
Come on. I want you to meet somebody.
Come on.
Hey, Jules.
I want you to meet my friend, Lucy.
Lucy, meet Jules.
Hey, Lucy. It's nice to meet you.
