Leverage

1 Previously on Siren Stop! Aah! - Who hurt mother? - A human.
This one, he kill your mother.
- You're her daughter? - Rrrr! - You heard about Klesco? - Sure.
They're gonna be moving in a drillship.
Ben, you should see this.
[BEN.]
You said that you had no pull with the oil company.
You're working with them.
[NICOLE.]
I was led straight to the Alpha.
If I can convince her to come willingly, I think we'll get a lot more out of her.
I will help soldiers, but they must help Ryn, too.
Now.
You are free to go on direct orders of the U.
S.
military.
So the military saves our asses, huh? They must have a bigger plan.
Unless they've been here, watching us this whole time.
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS.]
Research project for Wounded Warriors.
Soldiers.
They fought for our country.
Our country? Mm-hmm.
America.
Like your colony, only a lot bigger.
They fight other country? Yeah.
[FEMALE THERAPIST.]
One more, one more.
Push through.
Good work.
Must be big fight.
Maybe we can help them.
That's part of the reason we wanted to bring you here.
The way you grow new tissue, maybe it can help people like them.
[MALE THERAPIST.]
Two.
Good.
Okay, let it go.
[BEEPS.]
And her? Test subject.
It's okay, I promise.
[HIGH-PITCHED CALL.]
Mom? Well, hello, jailbird.
I know.
Crazy, right? You gotta give me more than that.
Mom, they found Sean's body.
We were on the boat when he died, they needed to get the facts straight.
That's pretty much it.
Your dad was worried sick about you.
Yeah.
Well, I appreciate the strings that he tried to pull.
Oh.
Is that why you came over to see me in the middle of the day, when you knew he wouldn't be here? Mom, gentle.
This It kills me to see you two fighting like this.
It's so unnecessary.
This family matters more than some dumb business deal.
So tell him to make the right choice and not just bend over like that.
Is that what they taught you in prison? You know, Klesco is giving money to support our arts programs at the schools? And they're also gonna be paving Spring Street all the way down to the water.
Yeah.
So they can move their tanker trucks down there.
Look, they're hosting a little open house at the community center for the entire town.
Explaining what their plans are, and how they're gonna help the town.
You should go.
Might help you feel better about this whole thing.
Yeah.
As long as there are free snow cones.
This one.
- [WINCING.]
Oh! - Hey.
Hey.
You okay? Mom? It's been happening lately.
Can I get you something? A stiff martini and a new L-5 vertebrae.
- Mom.
- Look, don't worry, okay? I'll be fine.
I'm going to see a specialist next week.
Your father pulled some strings.
[MALE OIL ENGINEER.]
Aft thrusters up to 80%.
[MALE WORKER.]
Copy that.
Drill string at 350 meters.
Pick up the pace out there, ya grannies.
[WORKERS SHOUTING OVER DIN OF EQUIPMENT.]
[SOFT JAZZ PLAYING.]
This is the drill string that pokes into the sea floor.
It allows us to pull up a core sample that, fingers crossed, confirms the presence of a great big oil deposit.
I can show you some of the cool things that Klesco is planning for your town.
Right this way.
Quite a show they're putting on.
Yeah.
Pave a few streets, give 'em some popcorn, makes it all okay.
This isn't to scale.
It's actually over 800 meters long.
You know what kind of leverage that generates? I know what we can do.
[THERMOMETER BEEPS.]
This takes your temperature.
[BEEP.]
[BEEPING.]
92.
2? She doesn't feel cold.
Yeah.
Must be well insulated.
- See, that wasn't so bad.
- [CELL PHONE BUZZING.]
- Just a slight pinch.
- Wait! - [GROWLS.]
- [GROANING.]
- Aah! - Aw, damn! It's okay, it was a mistake.
Are you okay? - [GASPS.]
- No needles.
I told them that.
[CLATTERING.]
Uh, they also want me to X-Ray and MRI.
Maybe next time.
We're gonna take this nice and slow.
Ben.
[SOFT JAZZ PLAYING.]
Oh, hey.
Ian.
This is Maddie.
Maddie, this is Ian.
- Nice to meet you.
- Hi.
I was not expecting to see you back here.
[CHUCKLES.]
Yeah.
Me, neither.
Klesco's got this black tie event this weekend, there's press and VIPs.
Live feed, the whole deal.
My mom didn't mention it.
Shocker.
Hats? [IAN.]
Nah, I'm okay.
- [MADDIE.]
We're good.
- Yeah.
- Hats? - Thank you.
Follow me.
[CHUCKLES.]
Yeah, I was a little surprised to get the invite myself.
They kill my investigative story, and then bring me out for this publicity stunt? I don't know whether they're arrogant or ignorant.
Probably both.
Check this out.
What's that? The invite they sent us.
Like we're employees or something.
You said there's gonna be a live feed at the event? Of what? I guess it's the core sample coming up on the drillship, proving there's oil down there for real.
You mind if I borrow this? [BEN.]
We need to get you back home.
In the ocean.
And we need to do it now.
First step, we gotta take out the sonic cannon, make the noise go away.
It's around here.
[MADDIE.]
Ben and I can do that We think.
But that's not enough.
They'll just bring in a new one.
We have to do more, something big, to make them go away for good.
So your home is safe.
Yes.
We have an idea.
This is the Klesco drillship.
We cut the string at its base, and then we're gonna pull it out.
Oh, jeez.
How are you planning to do that? They're gonna do it.
Once the cannon is off, they can swim down and cut it.
You pull that drill string, it's gonna do some damage.
Yeah, that's kinda the idea.
Yeah, but how you gonna pull it? We're gonna use your trawl net.
You can't.
It's barely 1,200 feet.
It's not long enough.
That's all we got.
I'll buy you a new one.
From my trust account.
That's why we took it out, for them.
Thank you, Helen.
When do we do this? There's an event on Friday night, press, oil execs, they're all gonna be there.
They'll be watching a live feed of the extraction.
They'll bring the cameras, we'll give 'em the show.
What do you need me to do? [BEN.]
You're gonna put on your nicest evening dress, drink expensive champagne, and make sure that everybody is watching that monitor.
Yeah.
I can do that.
Good.
Ryn, you weren't at the apartment earlier when I came by.
Did you go out? I go for a walk.
To think.
A thinking walk.
Hey, I I just want to make sure that they're up for this.
It's dangerous.
In water, always danger.
Never safe.
You're okay with this? We don't want this big fight.
But we must.
So we can go back home.
You switchin' to long lining, huh? Uh, yeah.
Yeah.
2,500 hooks, shortened up to three and a quarter miles.
That's the legal limit nowadays.
Should be plenty.
Yeah.
Uh-huh.
- Hey, can you grab that? - Yeah.
Right.
[WHIRRING.]
- What are those? - [BEN.]
DPVs.
Hopefully they're get us to the sonic cannon before it goes boom.
That is so James Bond.
I mean, you know, circa 1974.
If they actually work.
I got my dad's torch from the boat.
There's no guarantees it'll work, either, but So you guys think we really have a chance of pulling this off? Come on, Xan.
I mean, we got mermaids with blowtorches.
[HISSING.]
Fire.
Yes.
But this fire is very special.
It works in the water.
So we'll use this fire to cut.
You'll do this in the water.
Hey, Sarge.
Great chat! [LAUGHS.]
So is he your plus one or? Unfortunately, he's got other plans tomorrow.
[MACHINERY WHIRRING.]
Hey, you know, now that we got this line, we could actually use it.
Go out further, catch some bigger money fish.
Don't know.
Longer trips, it's more fuel.
You gotta spend money to make money, brah.
This could be huge for us.
- Yeah? - [BOAT HORN BLOWS.]
Maybe, right? Hell, yeah.
We go after the bigger markets, Seattle, maybe get some cash flow going and then Oh! [GRUNTS.]
Shit! - Whoa! Whoa whoa! - [GROANING.]
Hold on, I got you! Stay still! Stay still, man! I got you! - I got it.
- Ohh! You okay? You all right? Yeah, it's just jacket.
[FEMALE TECHNICIAN.]
Drill fluid at 500 psi.
C'mon, boys, push it! We gotta break through this shale.
[GRINDING.]
[PIPE CLANGING.]
We do this.
Amazing.
They can do it in human form, but will they be able to do it when they're in the water? They're less predictable in that state.
We don't have a choice.
They're the only ones that can go that deep.
In water, we are more animal.
We need this to survive.
Of course.
And I know you can do this job.
- You've changed.
- No, Maddie.
I am animal, too.
I see you denied our request for a blood draw and further scans.
We need to take our time, build trust with her.
I respect your desire to keep this a pleasant experience for the subject, but Sir, it's not about being pleasant.
She pushed him so hard when she saw the needle, he stabbed himself.
Sounds like she should have been restrained.
How'd that work with the other one you caught? We need to keep this moving.
There is a lot on the research agenda.
What exactly are we gonna be doing with her? Well, that's above your security clearance.
[HELEN.]
Hey.
Is everything okay? Yeah.
They'll be going away.
Back home.
He's one.
There's men? Of course there's men.
Um how long are they gonna be gone for? I don't know.
Awhile.
Maybe forever.
It's where they belong.
I thought you might want to see them once more before they leave.
I guess it's just back to my stupid, meaningless life, huh? [HELEN.]
We're all connected.
Just because they're gone doesn't change that.
[SOFT HISS.]
[RYN.]
One more day.
Then we go back in water, back home.
We look for the others we lose.
We are family again.
And we say thank you to the humans who protect us, keep us safe.
[BEN.]
Hopefully one day our species can all live together, in peace.
No more fights.
We should get them back, get some rest for tomorrow.
They will stay here.
Together.
One last slumber party.
Yeah, it's probably good for them to be together.
Be ready to roll in the morning.
Are you gonna stay here? Yes.
I will stay.
Calvin! [ROCK MUSIC PLAYING IN BAR.]
Wait wait wait wait wait.
Hey, um I know I don't say this a lot, but I really love you.
You say it, like, 20 times a day.
Yeah, but it's usually like, "I love ya.
" You know? Not "I love you.
" What's with all the mush? Is there something you're not telling me? No.
You and Xan are just going fishing? Mm-hmm.
[MALE SINGER.]
Come on, yeah, yeah Lord have mercy Hey.
Where'd Calvin go? He's with Janine.
Where you been? What do you mean? I just tried calling you earlier.
I thought maybe you left.
Why would you think that? I don't know, just wasn't sure if your work was done.
What are you talking about? You know, I never got to thank you.
For gettin' us outta jail? They said the military did it, and you're military.
Hey, yeah Lord have mercy Somebody tell you this? You got the best of me I'm a smelly, barely-employed, semi-alcoholic fisherman.
You, you come from outta nowhere, just way outta my league, all into me.
Come on, wasn't that hard to figure out.
And was sleeping with me part of the job? No.
I came up with that all on my own.
Hey.
What's your end game? Oh, baby Baby, Lord have mercy on me Lord have mercy You got the best of me [CRICKETS CHIRPING.]
[SIGHS.]
You don't have to stand there.
If you're gonna be my night watchman, at least have a seat.
Sit.
Be comfortable.
That's better.
You won't be coming back.
I know.
For you.
So you remember me.
Did you flush the regulators? They're good to go.
[DOOR OPENS.]
- Ryn.
- Everything okay? I want to spend this night with you.
We're glad you came.
We were missing you.
You are afraid.
Yeah.
It's a big thing we're doing.
I am afraid.
You are? When I go back, what if I am not the same? What if I forget how to survive.
Ryn, you're so strong.
You're going to be okay.
We believe that.
And after you find the others, the ones that are lost, you'll just come back here, right? Yes, Ben.
Maybe.
There's a chance you won't? ["DON'T TRUST MYSELF" BY ROBINSON PLAYING.]
Ryn always with you.
We love you.
And when you held me I know in the moment I was Fallin' from heaven I want to believe in something Something so different I'm stuck in the fever of us Mm You want? Overrated And when I found you I put my arms around you Show me.

[KISSING.]
Neck.
Maybe.

Yes.
Ooh-hoo-oooh I haven't worn this thing since you dragged me to that opera gala last year.
Do you remember that? Elaine? How's it going in there? Elaine? You okay? It's still happening? Okay.
Look, uh, just try and relax.
I'm gonna lift you a little bit.
- [WINCES.]
- Sorry, baby.
[GROANS.]
I'm gonna move up that meeting with the neurologist.
I wonder if it has something to do with the treatment from the clinical trial? We don't know what they're giving me.
We'll figure it all out, I promise.
If you wanna pass on tonight, I'm sure I can get Sylvia over here.
No.
I have pills.
I'll manage.
Well, it'd be a shame to have these earrings go to waste.
[LAUGHS.]
[JAZCOMBO PLAYING.]
Uh, Mr.
Pownall.
Hi.
I'm Ian Sutton, KFGT News.
Ben mentioned you.
Yeah, I was hoping to get a quote from you about Klesco's impact on the local fishing industry, especially its effect on sea life.
This is supposed to be a nice evening.
Well, I'm being nice.
Well, Ian, we value our natural resources around here, and we're utterly confident Klesco will be taking every safety precaution to ensure a minimal impact on our environment.
Yet their initial exploration has already been linked to the beaching of several whales in the area.
This is a celebration.
I hope you're able to enjoy yourself.
[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING.]
[INDISTINCT SHOUTS.]
[MAN.]
Ready on the elevator.
Lift drill string to 15 meters below sea floor.
[MAN ON INTERCOM.]
Copy that, drill string at 15 meters.
Standby for extraction.
Hey, Ben.
I gotta tell you something.
What? I look hot in neoprene? That goes without saying, so What's up? When the military freed us from jail, we were wondering how they got in so fast? Yeah? [SIGHS.]
They were here all along.
I was sleeping with them.
Nicole? Yeah.
Shit.
She say what she wants? Well, them, I guess.
[ALERT BEEPING.]
[BEN.]
All right, this is as close as we get.
Lights out.
It's time.
[MONITOR BEEPING.]
Xander? So when it's red or yellow, that means that the noise is bad.
You'll know that we shut down the cannon when the light goes green, okay? That's when it's safe to go in the water.
Green we go.
What is green? [XANDER.]
Uh, it's a It's a color? I'll show ya.
Ben has tail.
Yeah, not quite as good as yours, though.
Ben.
Levi friend.
Yes, friends.
I guess this is goodbye.
Ryn is with you.
- You ready? - Yes.
Ocean is strong.
So are we.
Yeah.
We can do this.
Maddie? Hey, be safe down there, all right? Yeah.
[JAZZ COMBO PLAYING.]
[MAN ON RADIO.]
We need you at the main entrance.
[ELAINE.]
Hello, Helen.
I wasn't expecting to see you here.
You look nice.
Thank you.
And thank you for releasing my trust funds.
Ben told me what you were using it for.
I'm sorry to hear about your health condition.
Autoimmune disorders can be tricky, and I hope that the money can help you find treatment.
I'm afraid my condition is chronic.
I know what that's like, obviously.
You're not well.
[TAPPING.]
- [FEEDBACK WHISTLES.]
- [MUSIC STOPS.]
Thank you all for coming tonight to this very special live event.
As you know, there are some exciting things happening in the ocean as we speak.
[SONIC CANNON FIRES.]
[BEEP.]
[SHOCKWAVE WHOOSHES.]
On behalf of my wife Elaine, and everyone in our town, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to you all.
People don't always agree on things, but the truth is our local economy's been struggling.
I was raised here, and I care about the people from my hometown, and if When Klesco pulls up oil in a few moments' time, it's gonna bring a lot of opportunity to the good people of this region.
Now it's my pleasure to introduce a man who's become not just a business partner of mine, but also a friend.
The CEO of Klesco Oil, Mr.
Roger Dunn.
[APPLAUSE.]
[BEEPING.]
Come on, Ben.
Come on.
[HISSES.]
[BEEPS.]

Okay.
Green.

Hey, hey.
Good luck down there, okay? Do your thing.
Yes, Xander.
Bye-bye.
Okay.
I'm gonna let this line out real fast, okay? Be careful of the hooks.
Sharp.
Sharp as hell.
[MACHINERY WHIRRING.]
This is the moment we've all been waiting for.
I have just received word that the extraction has begun.
- [MURMURING.]
- [WOMAN.]
That's wonderful.
This is a live feed from our drillship just offshore here.
As a special surprise, we've also mounted a camera at the drill site itself.
[CROWD GASPS.]
This is 800 meters at the bottom of the ocean.
Incredible, isn't it? Increase speed to 400 rpm, drill fluid at 1,000 psi.
It's show time.
I need your help.
Now.
[BLOWING.]
- [STATIC BUZZES.]
- [CROWD REREACTS.]
Well, I'm sure it'll be right back.
Whew.
Glad I had a handyman nearby.
You gonna tell me what that was about? A noble cause for our people.
[LINE GOES TAUGHT.]
[ENGINE REVS SLIGHTLY.]
What are you doing here? Mother.
[SCRAPING.]
That was an accident.
Okay? You You gotta let that shit go.
