Sand Land: The Series (2024) s01e06 Episode Script

The Fiend Beelzebub

[Beelzebub] Listen up, you insect-men!
I am the one and only
Fiend Prince Beelzebub.
I'm here to fight!
Dang. Tough crowd. Not much of a reaction.
[grunts] Hey, bug-eyes. Come and get it.
Time for a little payback.
[insect-man screeches]
-It's just like I told you.
[Beelzebub grunting]
[Beelzebub] Ow!
[shouts] You broke my goggles!
[grunts] That's it!
[insect-men growling, screeching]
[grunting continues]
[groans, blowing]
[Beelzebub] Dang.
These bug boys are pretty tough.
Not ready to give up yet, huh?
[scoffs] Things are about to get ugly.
-[insect-men screech]
Belz may be stronger
but he's still outnumbered,
so I'll cover him.
[Thief] No. There's no need
to worry about the Prince.
Our target is Commander Zeu.
[grunts] Kill them!
[Beelzebub groaning]
What are you doing? If we're not there
to cover him, Belz might--
[Beelzebub] Old man, stay out of this!
[gasps] What's he talking about?
Hold on.
The Prince told us to stay out of it.
We can't.
[Thief] Come on, Sheriff.
You've got to trust us by now, don't you?
Of-- Of course I do.
But I--
I can't just watch him die.
That's not trust.
[Beelzebub gasps]
[Zeu] How do you like that, Beelzebub?
It looks like this is the end
of the Fiend Prince, isn't it?
[insect-men chittering]
Finish him!
He was stabbed! We're too late!
Move over. Let me drive.
Not yet. You haven't seen
the Prince's true power.
What do you mean?
[Thief] You see,
the Prince is so kind-hearted
that he's often underestimated.
He told you himself,
but it appears that you've forgotten.
The Fiend Prince is fierce.
His Majesty is feared
by everyone around the world.
Whenever a demon decides
to unleash the power of darkness,
it is terrifying.
It's a terrible sight to behold.
All right.
While the Prince keeps them busy,
you and I will get Zeu.
[Beelzebub straining]
What? [gasps]
[Thief] He's at full strength.
[Beelzebub growls]
It's been a while
since I've witnessed his power.
It's dangerous. We need to back up now.
You need to stand back.
-[metal clinks]
-[Shiva gasps]
[chuckling] Don't forget.
I still have a few tricks up my sleeve.
[Beelzebub panting]
[Thief] All right.
We should be safe up here.
We should be? You've gotta be joking.
Any closer and we could end up
in some real danger.
How long are you planning on
standing there dazed, insect-men?
It's nothing but a bluff, you idiots!
Finish this once and for all!
Go on! Get him!
He can't take you all at once.
Attack together.
[Zeu] That's it! Do it! Kill him!
[Shiva] I can't believe it.
So much power.
You see. I told you.
Come on. Let's go.
[metal clinks]
It can't be.
[insect-man screeching]
Can you guys understand what I'm saying?
[screeching continues]
There's no point in fighting anymore.
Let's call it a day.
You utterly useless bugs.
Then I order you to take down Beelzebub
with you and self destruct.
-[stomach gurgling]
-[Beelzebub gasps]
[chuckles] Hmm?
[Shiva] He saw us.
Not to worry.
That'll be enough to lure him in.
[Zeu] So much
for the Fiend Prince Beelzebub.
Shiva and that other demon have
boarded the ship.
You have permission to kill them.
[siren wailing]
There they go.
-[Thief] It's all right.
-The Prince will be fine.
-But he--
-You must learn to have faith in me.
-You can trust us, you know?
Besides, don't you have
some other business to attend to?
I know you said you wanted to take out
the dam first, but that other task…
Let's get it done, shall we?
[Shiva grunts]
They're here! Follow me!
-[all gasp]
-[soldier] It's hot!
I thought you told us that pistol
didn't have any bullets in there.
Yeah, sorry. But at that time,
I didn't know if I could trust you or not.
[chuckles] How predictably human of you.
I'll take care of this situation. Go on!
[Shiva grunts]
[Thief] All right.
I gotta get back to His Majesty.
But first of all, one last thing…
[both] Huh?
[both exclaim]
[soldier 2] What is this smoke?
[Thief] Poison gas!
The demon is using poison gas!
-[alarm blaring]
-[soldiers coughing]
-[soldier 2] What the heck?
-[soldier 3] My eyes!
[soldier 4] Enemy poison gas attack!
What are you doing, you incompetent fools?
Very well.
Then I suppose I'll just have
to take care of Shiva by myself.
Well, I'll be damned.
Have you found the spring
you've been preaching about?
Supreme Commander Zeu!
Why do you always insist on
disturbing the peace wherever you go?
Is that what you call it? You're joking.
You've turned this place
into a living hell.
What do you mean?
[grunts] I'll have you know that I am
the one who brought peace to this country.
[Zeu] I brought stability and order
to this country
by taking full control of the water supply
and eliminating those who oppose me.
That is how I've maintained peace
in Sand Land.
And to achieve this,
naturally, I was forced
to make some sacrifices.
What sacrifices have to be made
to do the right thing?
What the hell are you talking about?
Who was it who commanded the tank brigade
30 years ago?
[grunts, gasps]
Oh, no!
[ammo casings clatter]
[Zeu] Don't you remember?
The Picchi people were wiped out
for the sake of our country,
gone in a single blast
by none other than you.
And you weren't even aware
that it was a trap, were you now?
Please! A puny pistol like that
won't even leave a scratch.
So? Now what are you gonna do?
Eat this!
Where are you?
Where? Where?
-[glass shatters]
-[siren wailing]
[Zeu] What the…
[Zeu gasps]
[Shiva grunts]
-Just die!
-[button clicking]
-[gasps] Damn!
-[alarm buzzing]
-[soldier] Commander, are you all right?
-Kill him!
-Kill Shiva!
-[soldiers gasp]
Back off. I don't wanna have to hurt you.
Good. While he's distracted
by those grunts,
I can take him out from above.
[Shiva] That's a…
Get back!
There's no way out this time, Shiva!
-You die!
What's this?
How could this…
[Shiva] General Are.
The rest is up to you.
I didn't intend to drag you into this.
[soldier] No. We are here to serve you,
General Are, not the King.
We stand by you.
Is he alive?
[soldier 2] I don't know, sir.
[Zeu] Damn it. Damn it all.
Are, you planned this?
[soldier] Why did General Are
shoot the Commander?
[soldier 2] Zeu was using us as bait
and was going to drop a bomb.
[soldier] No way.
[soldiers gasp]
Hey, you grunts. Take him down right now.
Kill him!
The hell are you doing?
Get him, even if it costs you your life.
I ask that you step aside.
This matter is just between me
and Commander Zeu.
[soldiers gasping, sighing]
You useless bastards!
Don't you realize what's at the--
[soldier] Are you injured, sir?
-Damn it all.
-[button clicking]
-Hey, you. Give me your gun.
-[soldier] Yes, sir!
Come on. Hurry it up.
Move it!
[whimpers] Stop there!
Who do you think you are?
You've committed a sin,
and that's unforgivable.
And what?
You think life as a small-town sheriff
wipes that all away?
I literally lost everything.
[Zeu screams, grunts]
[Shiva] That's what I get
for not questioning justice.
-[hammer cocks]
I get it. You win. I surrender.
I said I surrender.
This is your victory, Shiva.
You are definitely a legendary superstar!
I will make you a general
in the King's army again.
No, no! You can be the Supreme Commander!
[stutters] Please. I beg you.
You must forgive me.
I can do better. Please don't kill me!
[strains] Forgive you?
Forgive someone like you?
Go back to the King
and give him this message.
The dam and the truth about the Picchi
will be made public.
[chuckles] I thought he might do that.
Beelzebub? Are you--
Are you sure you're all right?
Yeah. Never been better.
I don't understand.
He can't move on his own.
-Lend him a hand, will you?
-[soldiers] Yes, sir.
[Shiva] Hmm?
[tapping continues]
Wait, what are you doing?
Show me your left hand now!
[Shiva grunting]
[Zeu laughing]
You're just as gullible
as you were 30 years ago.
Damn it.
Guess what I have.
It's the detonator for the remaining
explosives in the insect-men.
I will blow this entire place sky high.
No. Don't do it!
[Beelzebub] Hey! Make way. Coming through.
And now at last
you die!
-No way.
Do you really think you're badder than me?
[Beelzebub] There's nobody
out there badder
than a demon!
[Zeu grunts]
[Beelzebub] Sorry, old man.
But I just couldn't resist.
You're actually safe. Good job.
[Beelzebub] Who do you think I am?
I'm the Fiend Prince.
The Fiend Prince Beelzebub.
General Are.
[Are] Yes, sir.
-I must thank you once again.
-[Are gasps]
I only wish that 30 years ago,
I had your keen ability to recognize
the truth and act accordingly.
With all due respect, sir,
this mission was accomplished by you.
[stammers] No.
We couldn't have done it
without all three of you.
Ah, come on.
You don't really think a demon like me
wants to hear that, do you?
[Shiva] No good. We're not even close.
[soldier] Four more rounds
of 74-millimeter shells then we're out.
Is that so?
Come on. We gotta break through.
[explosions booming]
Crap. How could a dam be so stubborn.
-What was that? [gasps]
It broke through. Get back.
Get the tank to safety.
They did it!
Yes. But who was that? [gasps]
-[all cheering]
-[Are] The Swimmers!
Not bad. Pretty good artillery
for a bunch of vagabonds.
-[Beelzebub gasps] Amazing!
-[Thief laughing]
-This is awesome. [cheers]
-[Thief] Wonderful.
[Are] People of Sand Land,
water has returned to the river.
If you know anyone
who might be in the riverbed,
please alert them to the danger.
There are three individuals who we have
to thank for the return of our water.
First is General Shiva,
who was slandered as a criminal.
And two heroes
of the maligned race of demons,
Thief and the Fiend Prince Beelzebub.
[Are] The King will bestow them
with a generous reward.
Furthermore, the King has also pledged
to share half his wealth
by converting it into goods to be shared
-with the people of Sand Land.
-What is he saying?
I also pledge to reveal the truth
behind the great explosion 30 years ago
and the tragedy
that befell the Picchi people.
Now, we celebrate
the return of the river and peace.
-Well, that seemed to go well.
And the King can't exactly object.
And you, Are, will be a fine replacement
for Zeu as Supreme Commander.
As Commander?
I don't know, sir.
I believe it's you who should serve
as Supreme Commander, General Shiva.
You must be joking.
I'm not joining the army a second time.
You'll make a fine Supreme Commander.
-Teach that fool of a king a thing or two
and protect the peace of Sand Land.
[Shiva] You got it?
Now, shall we head home?
Guess we're gonna have to borrow the tank
just a little bit longer.
[Beelzebub] Yeah.
[engine sputters]
All right. Here we go!
Majesty, no more reckless driving anymore.
Ah, would you can it?
And your hair still looks weird,
Christmas tree hair.
[Thief, chuckles]
Back on the hair again, huh?
