Supergirl (2015) s04e08 Episode Script

Bunker Hill

My name is Kara Zor-El I'm from Krypton.
I'm a refugee on this planet.
I was sent to Earth to protect my cousin.
But my pod got knocked off course.
And by the time I got here, my cousin had already grown up and become Superman.
I hid who I really was until one day when an accident forced me to reveal myself to the world.
To most people, I'm a reporter at CatCo Worldwide Media.
But in secret I work with my adopted sister at the DEO to protect this planet I call my home from anyone that means to cause it harm.
I am Supergirl.
Previously on Supergirl My own show.
You are watching The Lockdown with Ben Lockwood.
Dad, you're famous.
Two dozen known alien worlds, and Nth metal is just the strongest material brought to Earth from any one of them, by far.
Agent Liberty took everything from me.
I will do anything to see him brought to justice.
Who is Agent Liberty? You betrayed your promise to Fiona.
Once you cross that line, there is no going back.
I have that sleep thing.
- Narcolepsy? - Yes! Mom was trying to find her a doctor, but Nia said she already had one.
Why would she lie about that? [MAN ON TV] Hi.
[ROGER THORNHILL] Hot day.
[MAN] I've seen worse.
[THORNHILL] Are you supposed to be meeting someone here? - Waiting for the bus.
- Oh.
[GASPS] - [CRUNCHING] - [SHUDDERS] You sleep weird.
Some roommate.
I told you not to let me sleep.
Uh, I gave you two hours so you wouldn't look like a crackhead at work again.
The average Fortune 500 CEO only gets five hours of sleep a night.
The average CEO doesn't get to be a CEO if she's dead from exhaustion.
[KARA] You needed an object Manchester holds close, right? Anything that can help me reach him psychically, clothing, jewelry.
He hurt someone in here.
Seems like he does that to everyone he meets.
[SIGHS] Man, I am still so sorry about what happened.
I led you right into his trap.
You're apologizing to me for believing the best in someone? It's kind of my whole thing.
- You wouldn't have let him get away.
- I did let him play me.
Look, his His rage was overpowering, you lost him.
It happens.
But it's not over yet.
That's what I'm afraid of.
I thought there was some light left in Manchester, but when I looked into his mind, there was nothing left.
Maybe you can get it back.
Brass knuckles.
Well, he does have national pride.
And Bob's your uncle.
- [ELEVATOR DINGS] - [NIA] Hold the door! Thank you.
Um Stockpiling for the great coffee war? - Uh No.
These are extras for friends.
- [CHUCKLES] - One more! Sorry.
- Hey.
- Thanks.
- Good morning.
- Hey, James! - Hey.
Hey, Nia.
Are those all for you? No, she brought extra for friends.
So, how goes it? Lena is just being so distant.
I mean We're gonna talk.
I'm sure we'll work it out.
- Hmm.
- Yeah.
I meant the article.
- Oh.
- [ELEVATOR DINGS] Oh! You okay? - Yeah, I'm fine.
- Nia.
Wait.
Nia, Nia.
Wait.
I I know something's going on with you.
I At Thanksgiving, you told different people different versions of your narcolepsy story, and none of them matched.
And now you're You're drinking gallons of coffee and freaking out at the TV Agent Liberty, on the TV, it reminded me of a nightmare I had.
Nia, I'm getting worried, and I want to help you.
I'm really okay.
I'm Agent Liberty.
Frank Respectfully, you are not leadership material.
However, we know you were on Shelley Island, and your background has oddly been erased.
So I've got a hunch you can tell us who Agent Liberty is.
I am Agent Liberty.
We offer plea deals, we tell them we're gonna lock them up, and they just keep saying the same thing.
Doing a Spartacus.
By which I mean our captured Children of Liberty claim the identity of their hero.
Oh, you're watching the classics? I'm mastering them.
Would you like to discuss auteur theory - and the works of Ed Wood? - Yeah, definitely.
Any leads from CatCo? No.
No, but we're getting close.
I can feel it in my gut.
Could be a probiotic issue.
But I do concur.
Agent Liberty's presence is still a threat, even Even without What is it? Oh.
Nia Nal saw that picture this morning and kinda freaked out.
- Nia Nal? - Yeah.
She said it reminded her of a nightmare or something.
- Who knows if that's true.
- Nightmare? [STUTTERING] And you just let her go? - Yeah.
- What are you talking about? There's no version of me telling you what I know that does not impact the space-time continuum.
[BOTH] Whoa.
Wait a minute.
Wait a minute.
You know about Nia Nal in the 31st century? What Brainy, who is she? Better we don't discuss that.
Future abrogation, the butterfly effect, causal loops, etc, etc.
Why do you think I kept this from you at Thanksgiving when I so easily, yet expertly, deduced her import? All you need to know is that Nia might be able to lead us to Agent Liberty.
- We must go to her at once.
- Okay, okay.
But She's a little freaked out right now, so maybe let me break the ice.
Yes, of course.
All right, fine.
Just go see Nia.
Let me know if you have any leads.
Then, at least, I'll have something to report to the President.
Are you having another one-on-one with the President? [CLICKS TONGUE] - Ooh, I hope Haley so gets yelled at.
- Yeah.
This is a complete disaster.
Lives were saved on Shelley Island, a dozen domestic terrorists were brought to justice.
I'm talking about my poll numbers, which just got a big old shave! I'm sorry.
You're letting polls dictate Sir, you have my word.
As soon as we take down this organization's leader, your numbers will be back to their usual luster.
If you think finding Agent Liberty will fix this, find Agent Liberty.
Yes, sir.
[BEN] No, Thack, I'm telling you not to worry.
Look, the war that we are waging has multiple fronts.
Just because we've had setbacks on our more, uh, bellicose endeavors Bellicose.
It means, "war-like," Thack.
Okay, Thack, listen up.
Agent Liberty appealed to extremists, whereas Ben Lockwood is turning Uh, Ben Lockwood, me.
I mean, me.
I am turning the broader tide against Supergirl and her kind.
And so, all I'm asking is Can we Can we just put Agent Liberty aside for a little bit? He'll come back when the time is right.
In the meantime [SIGHS] Right now, let's Let's let Ben drive.
There he is.
Ben, your friend is here from the university.
Manchester Black.
Thought I'd pop by and say hello.
[SIGHS] Manchester Where are you? So, I decided to ditch the city for the afternoon and pay a visit to old Benjamin.
Kill two birds with one stone, as it were.
Well, I think it's very thoughtful of you to come all the way here in person to thank him.
How could I not after what he did? I'm talking about the gift, man.
The gift.
Yes, of course, the gift.
What gift? The wedding gift.
A great big set of knives for me and my fiancee Fiona.
You all right there, Benjamin? [J'ONN J'ONZZ] Manchester! Tell me where you are.
I feel you.
[GASPS] You all right? Is it the tea? [EXHALES] Nah, the tea's brilliant.
Thanks.
And, uh, well, look, all gone.
Um, shall I walk you out? Yeah, I suppose so.
- It was lovely to meet you.
- You, too, Lydia.
Thank you.
Great cuppa.
Hey.
Okay, you want me, you got me.
Just Just let her go.
But she's the guest of honor.
Now, play nice.
Go on.
[WHISPERS] Easy, easy.
Hey, Lydia, you mind grabbing some more tea? I think Manchester's gonna stay just a little bit longer.
Oh.
Yeah, sure.
Say anything and she dies screaming.
[KNOCKING AT DOOR] - Kara.
- I know you want to be left alone and I will absolutely do that after you hear me out, because I think I need your help.
And I think you need mine.
Thank you.
My family is from Far away.
It's okay.
They're from a planet called Naltor.
Wow, that's You know you could have told me, right? I mean, I know it's not the best time to broadcast that you're an alien, but I know myself really, really well.
Always have.
But once in a generation, some of our women get this genetic oneiromancy.
They can dream the future.
And you can do that? My dreams aren't like you think.
I can't control what I see.
Most of the time, I don't even know what's going on in my dreams, and when I do, it's terrifying.
Last time I saw Agent Liberty about to murder a woman.
Did you recognize her? Do you know when he's going to do it or where? That's what I'm trying to tell you.
If I could help, I would.
Really, I would.
But I can't.
Well, what if I told you that I know someone that could help you? I would welcome the help.
Great.
Your help is welcomed.
- Brainy? - Hey, girl.
Oh! [BRAINY] I'm okay.
Can I ask you, how do you know so much about me? - Well, I'm a 12th level - He's really smart.
Oh.
All you need to know is that what you see isn't necessarily what will be.
Hence, the need for exploration and interpretation.
But that is why I'm here.
So, you have nothing to worry about, Nura.
- Did you just call me Nura? - No.
I didn't.
Did Did you call her Nura? She didn't.
[CLEARING THROAT] Now Listen to Kara's voice and count backwards.
Three, two, one.
- I'm here.
- And what do you see? A hook.
It's one of those loady type hooks.
It was in the dream last time.
Do you see anything new? I don't know.
- [BRAINY] She needs to relax.
- Nia, it's okay.
It's okay.
Just relax, and remember, this is your dream.
[INAUDIBLE] She's back.
The woman She's shaking.
It's awful.
I think I just slowed her down.
I can stop the shaking.
She's already modulating her dreaming.
That That's great, Nia.
That's great.
[WHISPERING] After this, I'm really gonna have some follow-up questions.
[WOMAN] Stop, put the gun down.
Please, just put the gun down.
You're scaring me.
Please, put the gun down.
Stop! I said Please, stop.
Please, stop.
Put it down! - There's somebody else here.
- She needs to move toward it.
It's Liberty.
Kara, I want to get out.
Count forwards.
One, two - I want to get out now! - Three.
- Hey, we're here.
You're safe.
- [GASPING] But that woman isn't.
And I know where we need to go.
[NIA GROANS] Welcome to Collinwood.
It doesn't seem so bad.
Oh, yes.
What could go wrong? [DOG BARKING] And this is the end of the Lockwood 5-cent tour.
Ah, well, Lydia, Benjamin, you have a lovely home.
So, I've got tons of work I need to catch up on.
- I would be - What's that? Oh, Ben's great-great-great-grandfather made those.
Yeah.
He was a blacksmith.
That bayonet is the Well, it's one of the first things the Lockwoods ever forged.
It's from the American Revolution.
Is it, really? Can I? So You know, it's from Bunker Hill.
Remember that one? It's the one where the Brits, uh, thought they had won, but the battle ended up so bloody, that it cost them the war, and it wasn't worth it.
Bloody is right.
I mean, can you imagine sticking this into a bloke and then twisting it in his guts? - That's graphic.
- Graphic.
It is.
"Lockwood.
" It's a fine piece.
You ever wish your husband was a steel man, Lydia? Stop it.
Of course, that's not really the family business anymore, is it? Now you lot just dress up in wicked metal masks.
Isn't that right Agent Liberty? - Ben, what is he talking about? - [BREATHING HEAVILY] Okay.
Listen, I've never seen you before in my life, and I'm not whoever it is that you say that I am.
[J'ONN J'ONZZ] Manchester.
Manchester, tell me where you are.
- Get out of my head.
- You made a promise.
That promise died with Fiona.
But it didn't die with me.
If you can't hold yourself to that promise, I will.
What? I feel your pain, Manchester.
Give this up.
[EXHALES] You want to feel my pain? Feel it.
[GRUNTING] You're insane! He is not Agent Liberty! Do you bet your life on that, Lydia? Somewhere in your perfect little house, there is a silly costume he puts on to go do terrorism.
Show me that mask.
In retrospect, it makes sense that more than one person would have run the Collinwood 5K.
Do you recognize anything? No.
All I saw in my dream was the woman, the shadow, and the hook.
Do you think we should be looking for some kind of construction site? No.
What you saw were probably symbols.
Jungian, Freudian.
Where I'm from, we call them Frungian.
- I'm sorry.
- No.
No, Nia.
Don't be sorry.
We're on the right track.
This is This is good.
Although I do sense some hostility from the locals.
Hmm.
Not unexpected.
My scan of regional data revealed Collinwood as an early center for anti-alien activity.
It does feel a little Purge-y.
James DeMonaco, 2013.
I thought you were just watching the classics.
- And? - Let me talk to you for a sec.
Just a minute.
Oh, of course.
Don't look now, but these, uh, fine folks over here with the alien-sniffing dog, - they've been following us.
- Who? Where? - Them? - No! Stop it! Stop! I told I think they're Children of Liberty.
- Presumptuous.
- I X-ray'd them, and they've got guns, and the woman has a metal mask in her purse.
- Problematic.
- Or it could be perfect.
Instead of wandering around the city looking for the girl in Nia's dream, instead, why don't we just find the guy who's going to attack her? - Agent Liberty.
- Yes.
He's here, or he will be soon.
And maybe these three can lead us to him.
Hmm? Chicanery! Very good.
I'll distract Nia while you catfish our new friends.
Hail me after.
Look, Nia, a crafts store.
Have you been introduced to the magic of lanyards? - Hello! Hi.
- [DOG BARKING] [EXCLAIMS GRACIOUSLY] Um, I was wondering if you guys could help me.
I just did one of those 23andMe tests.
That's, you know, the DNA? Anyway, my real name is Kara Liberty, so I'm here searching for my birth dad.
Agent.
- Excuse me? - Agent Liberty.
He's He's around here somewhere, am I right? [CHUCKLES AWKWARDLY] What a cute dog.
[BARKING] - [LAUGHING] - [VEHICLE APPROACHING] He's, uh, friendly.
[LAUGHING] Uh, double diamond lanyards.
My, aren't these lanyards compelling? Nia? - Is this for us? - [VAN DOOR OPENS] This is happening so fast.
They're attacking Kara! - Nia.
Nia! - Let her go! - Nia, no! - This is problematic.
[DOG CONTINUES BARKING] You really don't have to do this.
You can just - It's going to be all right.
- All right? We've been kidnapped.
Reporting 101.
When you get kidnapped, you're on the right track.
But that doesn't make any sense.
Tell that to Lois Lane.
- Who? - [BRAINY] It's simple.
We bide our time, and then spring into action using our super Kung fu.
In which we have many belts in an aggressive rainbow of colors.
Mmm-hmm.
Our plan is working.
Do you see this? They have weapons everywhere.
Equipment.
This is textbook bad guy lair.
Shh.
We should talk to him.
Do you want to tell Agent Liberty we brought reporters to his clubhouse? - Nia? - [WOMAN] Whose call was that? They've got to die.
[GUN COCKING] [GASPS] [MAN GROANS] Kara! Brainy! [GROANING] [YELLS] [GRUNTS] - [SCREAMS] - [THUDS] [MANCHESTER] Got words for him? He's a killer, you know.
Yeah.
Murdered the love of my whole, wasted life.
Please tell me this isn't true.
[SNIFFLES] I'm so sorry.
It was done, it was finished.
I was going to stop.
- Put the suit on.
- What? I want you to die doing what you love.
- [LYDIA] No, please, no.
- Now! That was amazing.
That That thing you did with the bullet and the cuffs, how did you do that? I don't know.
It was like a reflex.
I I saw the moment before the gunshot.
The power's never worked like that before.
[STAMMERING] I just knew what to do.
I guess that makes sense.
Our powers are like muscles.
The more we use them, the stronger they get.
Or so I've been told.
Just one problem, our only leads are still unconscious.
Wait.
This says "Lockwood Family Steel.
" - You think Lockwood as in - Ben Lockwood? Phone, please.
Ben Lockwood's family company, Lockwood Family Steel, went bankrupt shortly after the terraforming events which destroyed this factory and killed Ben's father.
I'm gonna get help.
- [CELL PHONE VIBRATING] - Kara? Brainy, Nia and I are in Collinwood, where we ran into a bunch of Children of Liberty.
Are you okay? Of course you're okay.
They took us to this factory, and it has weapons and supplies, war room stuff.
But guess who the factory belonged to first? Ben Lockwood.
- What? - Do you think there is a chance he might be Agent Liberty? Well, let's find out.
Hi, Frank.
Uh, the plea deal's off the table.
What? Why? It was for your cooperation, but now we don't need it.
We know that Lockwood is Agent Liberty.
Lockwood? Who? Oh, so, you're still siding with him.
He's still siding with him.
Who are you talking to? Um, listen.
You know what, that's fine.
But if you change your mind, just give me a call from whatever black site they send you to.
Wait.
[ALEX] It's him.
- Are you sure? - We got the bastard.
- [THUDS] - [LYDIA] Stop! [GRUNTING] - Come on, get up.
- [YELLS] Ben.
All dressed up for his funeral.
[GRUNTS] [BEN] When this is over, they're going to need dental records to ID your body.
Stand back, stand back.
It could be a lot worse.
We could go Biblical, eye for an eye.
You killed Fiona, I kill her.
You feel that? That's what it's like when you're about to lose everything.
What do you want, J'onn? You're not going to talk me down.
I know.
And I'm sorry.
- For what? - You leave me no choice.
[GRUNTING] [PANTING] You're right.
Because I'll never stop.
Not unless you kill me.
Go on.
Go on.
I dare you.
You know you can do it.
- No.
- Then why are you here? [GRUNTING] - [GRUNTS] - [KNIFE STABS] - Run! - [WHIMPERS] [MANCHESTER LAUGHS] Shouldn't have done that.
[GROANS] [GRUNTING] [GUNSHOTS] Lockwood? - [J'ONN J'ONZZ] Supergirl.
- J'onn, what is it? Manchester's on the warpath.
I couldn't see for certain, but I think he has Agent Liberty.
I'll find them.
I told you to wait for Kara.
Fine.
We stick together.
I saw them come through here.
- Nith metal.
- Nth metal.
Strongest element in existence.
There's a bit of it in this.
I thought that was a class ring.
I was home-schooled.
Well Wait.
This is it.
This is the place from my dreams.
It's all going to happen.
Nia Nal, you contain greatness.
I can't tell you how I know, but we can stop this.
You can stop this.
I can stop this.
I can stop this.
[GASPS] You saw something, something Something more.
Brainy, we need to get back outside.
Benjamin Lockwood! Come and get your medicine, lad.
[GRUNTING] Now then, I suppose the requisite question is Any last words? [GRUNTS] I came here to stop him.
Don't make me stop you.
Is this the part where you tell me violence won't change anything? [DEVICE BEEPING] [COUGHING] [GASPING] What What - What did you do to me? - It's moondust.
Sharp enough to cut Kryptonian DNA.
Oh, nasty.
You just got a lungful from one of them alien moons.
Part of it's honed to a nanometer.
I bet you're just a bit softer on the inside.
If you kill him, what does that make you? The intolerant left.
If we want to win this, we have to be better.
Let me take him to prison, show people who he really is.
Don't be daft! Those people hate you! You can put a cape on, say you're a superhero, but to him and everyone else like him, you'll only ever be an alien.
A roach! [GRUNTING] Time to pick a side, Pollyanna.
You're with them, government stooge, Happy Meal hero, or you're with me, and we string up the lot.
Every terrorist turning your streets into war zones.
You keep saying it's a never-ending battle.
How about you and I end it together? I'll never be like you.
What is it? What do you see? Supergirl.
[BEN] Lydia! - Ben! - Sweetheart, you can't be here.
- We have to - [DOOR OPENS] Well, well.
[BEN] No! [GRUNTS] Hook.
Spielberg.
1991.
Are you hurt? [PANTING] I'm all right, I'm okay.
We We've got to get out of here.
Ben? Ben.
Ben? Ben, stop! Ben, don't! Ben, put the gun down! That's Nth metal, Supergirl! - No point struggling.
- I'm not struggling.
I'm flying! [GRUNTING] [YELLING] [BOTH GASPING] [SCREAMING] Miss Nal, right? Nice work.
[STUTTERS] Thank you.
[SIREN WAILING] Think it's over? I think it's a start.
Now people will see who he really is.
Small.
He's not a movement, he's a butcher.
And now, he's gonna pay for it.
Have either of you seen Kara? - Uh, yeah.
- I think she - Mr.
Lockwood, any comments? - [BEN] Any comment I don't know.
Look at my face.
Look what they did to me.
Now, I wore that mask to protect me and my family because there are aliens who don't like to hear what I believe, don't like to hear the truth, so I'm cards up.
What about Supergirl, huh? You know who I am.
Who is she? Why are you here? Huh? Both times you let me go on my merry.
Both times I've gone on to do Well, let's call it unspeakable things.
So my theory is part of you wanted me to get away.
Part of you wanted me to do what you couldn't.
You're wrong.
Ah, 'cause you want to be a bloody saint.
'Cause you ain't gonna study war no more, yeah? You think that's a weakness? I think it's a character defect.
Couple of weeks ago, you had that same defect.
But maybe that's my curse, believing in people who don't deserve it.
You think my soul's still up for grabs, old man? Yes, I do.
And I think you do, too.
Supergirl really got him.
It's gonna be hard for Lockwood to come off reasonable now that everyone knows he's a psycho in a mask.
Colonel Haley, Director Danvers.
- Hello, Supergirl.
- President Baker.
"Human rights activist imprisoned.
" Their words, not mine.
- [SUPERGIRL] "Human rights"? - Yeah, a lot of people, lot of donors are asking how can we tolerate this in a government that is supposed to be for the people.
That meant to imply that aliens aren't? - Aren't what? - People, sir.
Of course not.
But you are a government employee, like me.
And, as such, we need to make sure that we are serving all of the people of this country, not just the ones we agree with.
For reasons of national security, from now on, the DEO will require full transparency from its assets.
We need to know your secret identity, Supergirl.
No.
We keep her off the books for a reason.
- She can't tell you that, sir.
- And why not? Lockwood just shined a huge spotlight on the fact that you are withholding who you really are.
Now, keeping that secret inflames things.
Gives the public more reasons to distrust you and my government.
If I did that, sir, everyone I know, everyone I love would be at risk.
My family is with the Secret Service as we speak.
You think they're not in danger? No one should be above the rest of us.
We need to put country first.
I'm sorry, sir.
I can't give you what you want.
Then, I thank you for your service, but you're dismissed, effective immediately.
I hope you'll comply.
The United States does not want a war with Supergirl.
Then I trust you won't start one.
Okay, just give me some time.
They'll come around.
Protect this place and everything it stands for.
