Star Wars: The Clone Wars s06e04 Episode Script


Clone crisis! After the mysterious death of his friend Tup, ARC trooper Fives embarked on an investigation, which led to the discovery of a hidden chip which is placed inside clone troopers when they are still embryos.
The Kaminoan scientist Nala Se claims the chip is harmless and is meant to restrain the clones from violent, unpredictable action.
Fives claims otherwise and has convinced Jedi Master Shaak Ti to allow him to plead his case directly to Supreme Chancellor Palpatine on Coruscant.
Please be advised we have arrived at Coruscant and will be touching down at our destination shortly.
No Wait Ugh! No.
What was that? What did you do? You drugged me.
Greetings, Master Jedi.
The Chancellor is waiting inside.
Tup The mission AZI-3 Master Shaak Ti, it is good to see you again.
I trust you've kept this matter extremely confidential.
Of course, Chancellor.
Ah, good.
So this is the clone who has caused so much alarm? No, no, you drugged me.
She There, there, soldier.
Don't strain yourself.
Guards, let him down, please.
Now, trooper, what brings you before me? - The chips, Chancellor.
- Chips? These were removed from both clone troopers.
Clone trooper Fives claims they are the cause of the problem.
Those are inhibitor chips, which are placed in clones to make them less aggressive and more compliant to orders.
I tried to explain to this clone that they are placed in them for his own good, but he removed his chip nonetheless.
Our own good? This thing they put in us malfunctioned in clone trooper Tup.
I removed his and analyzed it.
There were signs of rapid decay.
And we're positive this has nothing to do with a virus? No, we still do not know for sure what caused trooper Tup to kill.
We only know that his chip failed, and now this clone has removed his own chip, which makes him a risk to himself and others.
I'm not at risk.
Sir, they're covering something up.
I know it.
If it's not them, then it's a Separatist plot.
They use this chip against us to make us more violent than less.
That's why Tup killed General Tiplar! A Separatist plot from before the war even started? That seems unlikely.
Don't you agree, Master Shaak Ti? It does, Chancellor.
It seems very unlikely.
It is absolutely impossible.
What we have here is a single malfunction to one clone's inhibitor chip caused by a virus, Separatist plot or not.
Perhaps it would be best if clone trooper Fives and I discussed this without your presence.
Chancellor, I must object.
Please, Master Jedi.
Trust me.
I will not be alone.
I have my security here.
I want this soldier to feel he is having a fair say in this matter.
Now where were we? No! Let me go! Guards! No! You! He tried to kill me.
It was so sudden.
You were right, doctor.
He must have gone mad without his chip.
You have done all you can, Doctor.
I trust you will keep these safe? Of course, Chancellor.
Fives, stop! Fives! Close the blast doors! I can't believe Fives would try to assassinate the Chancellor.
The Kaminoans feel a virus corrupted the clone's inhibitor chip, which has led to this behavior.
ARC trooper Fives feels he is the victim of a plot, Separatist or otherwise.
All security and clone forces on Coruscant have been ordered to join the manhunt.
The Chancellor has been moved to his Senate quarters, and the perimeter has been secured.
However, Jedi involvement has not been requested.
That's a little odd, isn't it? Hmm.
Discover the truth we must.
If there is a plot involving the clones, we must get to the bottom of it.
We will investigate quietly, undercover.
We must make sure this clone is not killed.
I'll handle this investigation.
Fives was part of the 501st, If Rex and I find him, he'll trust us.
Be wary.
Since he removed his inhibitor chip, Fives may no longer be the man you once knew.
Here you go.
Thank you, ladies.
Have a good time on Coruscant, now.
Thank you! Heya, pal.
Where to? Take me to 79's.
The clone bar? Oh, you're a clone, huh? Look, just shut up and drive! Okay, you got it.
So headin' out for a little fun on the town, eh? I didn't know clones could have fun.
There's a lot you don't know about clones.
No one knows.
Ooh, very mysterious, eh? I like a good mystery.
Yeah? You ever hear the one about the people engineered to kill, engineered to kill their best friends, their leaders, and they don't even know it? I'm a cab driver, pal.
I hear stories like that all the time.
Hey, you payin' for this ride or what? Ah, bill it to the Republic.
Bill it to the Republic.
Good one, brother! Lousy, cheap clones! It's your credit, pal.
You're payin' for this.
Ah, your mother's a droid! Get out of here! Droid lover! Come on, brother.
Let's go inside.
Corporal, that's a nice hat you got there.
Mind if I see it? Uh, sure, yeah.
Sure, you got it.
Hit it! You got it! To the Republic! Can I get you fellas anything? I think it's time for another round.
Hey, bartender! Hey, see you around, brother.
Kix, Jesse.
To the 212th! Down the hatch, boys! Ah! Fan out, and check IDs.
So I guess the 501st is back on Coruscant? Oh, yeah, we just got back from Ringo Vinda.
The strangest thing happened out there.
Yeah, I know.
Fives? Whoa.
What's going on? They say you tried to assassinate the Chancellor and that you're infected with that virus that killed Tup.
I don't have time to explain right now.
All I can tell you is is that I'm being framed.
All of us, even the Jedi, are in grave danger.
But what can I do, Fives? How can I help? I need to talk to Rex, or or General Skywalker.
Well, they've been tasked with finding you.
Just just turn yourself in! No! No, I'll never get to them.
You don't understand.
What I'm mixed up in, it goes all the way to the top.
The highest levels are involved in the conspiracy.
I have to talk to General Skywalker and Rex directly, alone.
Look, I can contact Rex, but I can't guarantee he'll bring the General.
Good, good, good.
Thanks, Kix.
I appreciate it.
Here are the coordinates.
Just make sure he meets me there.
Good luck, Fives.
Identification, please.
Have you seen this clone? Uh, no, sir.
I haven't seen him.
All right.
Move along.
Identification, please.
All right, you guys check out.
Move along.
Sir, the fugitive clone has been spotted by one of our probes in sector I-9.
Well, these are the coordinates Kix gave us.
Let's hope Fives is inside.
Eh, I hope he knows what he's doing.
Fives? Fives, we're here.
Come on out.
We just want to talk to you.
General Skywalker, thank you.
Thank you for trusting me.
Now, have you come without troops? We have.
Put down your weapons, then.
I don't think so, Fives.
Please, sir! Please, I'm unarmed.
All right.
I'm putting my pistols down.
What are we here for, Fives? I need your help.
I know you do.
We know you're not well.
It's been rough for you these past couple days.
I'm not crazy! Please, please, just just hear what I have to say.
We're here to help you, Fives.
Just come with us.
Let us take you back to the Temple.
No! I just need you to listen to me.
I'm not really sure we have any other choice.
I was framed because I know the truth the truth about a plot, a massive deception.
By whom? Well, there's a sinister plot in the works against the Jedi.
I have proof of it.
I can prove that everything that I know is true beyond a shadow of a doubt! Show me the evidence.
The evidence is in here.
It's it's in here.
It's in all of us, every clone.
What is it? Organic chips built into our genetic code to make us do whatever someone wants, even kill the Jedi.
It's all in here.
Let's just get you some help first.
Then we can review everything.
It'll be okay, Fives.
We'll sort this out.
Ah, you don't believe me! We're closing in on the target.
Everyone be ready.
Fives, we are listening to you.
We only want to help.
How do I know you're not tricking me? How do I know it won't be a trap? The Chancellor will try to kill me.
I promise you that! The Chancellor? He's in on it! I don't know to what extent.
But I know he orchestrated much of this.
He told me in the medical bay! He told you? When you tried to assassinate him? You have gone too far, Fives.
The Chancellor isn't capable of what you claim.
He is! I swear to you, General.
You have no idea Stand down, soldier! Stand down! Get on your knees! No! No! No! Stay back! Don't do it! Don't do it, soldier! Get away from me! Fives, no! Fives! Fives! Fives Get this ray shield off! Fives.
Brother Call for help! We need a medic! Rex Fives This it's bigger than any of us than anything I could have imagined.
I-I never meant to I only wanted to do my duty.
Brother Fives.
Stay with me, Fives! Fives! The mission the nightmares they're finally over.
Fives? No, Fives.
Come on, Fives, don't go! Stay with me.
Stay with me.
Fives! Fives! Don't go.
Oh, no.
A tragic situation, indeed.
About the clones' breakdowns, have we discovered any new evidence? I've had my own personal doctors examine both bodies.
It appears Nala Se did miss something in her examination.
Another cause your doctors found? A parasite.
Native to Ringo Vinda.
Probably in the canteen of water they both shared.
It did cause the inhibitors to decay, once the parasite had taken hold.
It is very rare.
However, just to be cautious, we have prepared an inoculation for every clone trooper in our army.
So I guess it's over, then? Yes.
We can finally put this whole wretched situation behind us.
We must direct our attention back to the war at hand.
Each day we grow closer and closer to victory.
Lord Tyranus, have you received the inhibitor chip that you requested? I have, indeed.
You have done well, doctor.
Our plan has gone undiscovered, master.
The clone in question is now dead, and the Jedi still suspect nothing.
Destroy all evidence.
When the time comes, no one will be able to stop our plan to execute Order 66.
