Supergirl (2015) s04e17 Episode Script

All About Eve

Previously on Supergirl Mr.
Olsen is stable.
Who is the next of kin? I'm Kelly Olsen, James' sister.
If we don't help him, James is gonna die.
You're asking me to work with you to save him? I can save both you and him.
You have to be just like her.
Move like her, think like her.
[SPEAKING RUSSIAN] Promote peace, my son.
If you don't stand up and fight, you'll lose everything.
I am not a man of peace.
Otis, find me a real American.
Someone charismatic.
I think I know just the guy.
Name's Ben Lockwood.
Miss Tessmacher! Eve.
She's alive.
Get the EMTs up here now.
Director, there's a letter.
It's from Lex Luthor.
Stay with her.
"Dear Lena, I wish I could say it wasn't personal planting a spy, stealing your research, but it is.
" Lex was working with Eve Tessmacher.
- Oh, my God.
- She's coming to.
Lena, hey, are you okay? - I think so.
- Look at me.
[WEAKLY] Alex.
Alex, I've got to tell you about Lex.
He escaped from prison, he attacked you, and he stole your research, we know.
No, that's not the whole story Hey, uh-uh, don't move.
And, yes, we know that Eve was his spy.
Yes, but I gotta tell you You've been through trauma.
So, please, just try to relax.
I'm sorry.
You have nothing to apologize for.
Supergirl is searching for Lex.
She will find him.
I checked the whole South Pacific.
No sign of Lex or his helicopter.
Kal left me here to protect Earth and I let his arch-nemesis slip through my fingers.
Everything that Lex does now is because I failed.
I'm gonna cast a psychic net.
I might be able to detect them.
[MYR'NN] J'onn - [GROANS] - J'onn? J'onn, are you okay? J'onn! Thank you for saving me.
Why do you think this happened? I told you the other night I am no longer a man of peace.
When I took Manchester's life, I realized that I was done trying to be my father.
But now that I have clarity as to who I am not, I no longer have clarity as to who I am.
You think that caused you to lose your powers? There is an ancient story about a race of shapeshifters whose planet was destroyed.
[STAMMERS] They had to constantly change shape to survive.
For generations, they did this.
Until, one day, they forgot their true form and all that goes with it.
History, culture, all sense of self.
They even forgot the name of their race.
I am a shapeshifter, too, Kara.
The same thing could happen to me.
There must be something we can do.
[BREATH SHUDDERS] I heard my father's voice when I fell.
The Staff of K'hollar was with him when he died.
Maybe I could use its power to summon his spirit for counsel.
Lex is out there.
I need to help you find him.
No, no, you are always helping everyone around you.
Right now, you just need to take care of yourself.
[KISSES] [KELLY] They dress their patients in business attire in this hospital? That's funny.
No, actually, I got a clean bill of health from the docs about an hour ago, so Why didn't you call me? 'Cause you'd have wanted to take me home.
[CHUCKLES] And the world has turned upside down since I've been here, so I need to get to work.
So - [CLATTERING] - [GROANS] James, are you okay? Yeah, yeah, [STAMMERS] I'm fine.
You were shot.
You almost died on the operating table.
Look, this isn't a broken leg.
You need to pay attention to what's going on.
Kelly, I said I'm fine.
I'm a psychologist that specializes in trauma.
This is my job.
And my job is to cover the Alien Amnesty repeal.
There are thousands of Americans, the government's trying to take away their rights, and nobody's paying attention because Lex is out there.
I just need to make sure that people know what's going on.
So I need to get to work, I'll call you later.
How long do you think it's gonna take them to find Lex Luthor this time? Find Lex Oh, no, no, no, put your phone down, son.
What we're doing here, this is the real news.
We are making history.
Lockwood, Senator Granberry's office just called, can you stop by there today? Tell her I'll be right there.
What do you say, son, you want to watch another senator tell your father how he's doing good work? It's pretty cool.
[CHUCKLES] - [ALARM BLARING] - [MAN] Breach of protocol.
It's a perimeter breach.
Stay sharp.
It could be Lex Luthor.
[HALEY] Supergirl? What does she want? I forgot how loud those were.
- Everyone, stand down.
- [ALARM STOPS] I, uh I come offering donuts and my help.
Lex usually attacks within the first 48 hours of escaping.
Now, I know we've had our differences, but I think we should team up to catch him.
While I do appreciate a good cinnamon cruller, Supergirl, the President has ordered us to redirect manpower to Washington, D.
[ALEX] For security.
In case of any unrest after the repeal vote.
So, who's looking for Lex? FBI, CIA, US Marshals.
I believe SEAL Teams one through six.
Everyone but us.
Lex had superpowers when I fought him.
He is more dangerous than ever, and he will strike.
Maybe I can help Supergirl.
With support from Agent Dox, I can direct the D.
operation from the field.
No, I can run point on D.
, cover where necessary.
You focus on finding Lex.
Don't make me regret this.
I've been doing scans of the skies, but I'm not finding anything.
But most criminal organizations have a weak link.
You're right.
Eve Tessmacher was working with Lex.
Lena knows her better than any of us.
- Let's go talk to her.
- Um Lena has been through quite the ordeal.
And given the fact that you two don't have the cleanest history, I think it's better if I talk to her.
Uh, if she gives you a lead, press this once and I'll be there.
You press it twice, I'll know not to come.
Nia is at the fortress trying to dream up what Lex's plan might be, but so far nothing.
We'll keep a secret communication open with her in case she's successful.
Oh, oh, I almost forgot.
J'onn wanted me to give this back to you.
I can't tell you how much it means to have this back.
- Thank you.
- Keep it close.
You never know when you might need it.
Can't you read the sign? [KNOCKING CONTINUES] It's on the door.
The sign.
Damn sign.
It says we're closed! Ah, J'onn, my son.
Let's have a little chat, shall we? This is a very nice office.
It reminds me of the library at the University of Z'onn Z'orr.
You're here.
I don't believe it.
Weren't you trying to contact me? [STAMMERING] Yes, but I thought I might hear a voice or feel a presence, I didn't think you'd actually be here.
I am.
I'm so glad.
I've been so lost.
So, so confused about my identity.
I, I tried to follow your example.
I really tried to follow.
I studied the Sacred Symbols, I, I counseled everybody, everybody to be peaceful.
But it just didn't work.
And, and, now, I'm at an impasse.
I please I need guidance.
That's not why I'm here.
Then what, why did you come? Because you failed.
You were supposed to be the keeper of the Sacred Symbols.
A holy man, a man of peace, but you said you are not a man of peace, so I've come to take the Symbols back.
If you take the Sacred Symbols, Martian history will disappear forever.
Hmm, a shame.
I'm taking them now.
No wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Well, you can't.
They're inside my mind.
They're here on the table.
- Goodbye.
- No, no, wait.
[GROANS] Wait [MALE ANCHOR ON TV] We interrupt our coverage of the Alien Amnesty repeal with an update on the manhunt for Lex Luthor.
Sources say his sister, Lena Luthor, is a victim.
Authorities found Ms.
Luthor late last night in her office, drugged and bound.
Lex Luthor is considered extremely dangerous and any information should be immediately reported.
Lena, I wasn't expecting you.
All the reports say you were knocked unconscious.
You were always prone to migraines.
Is your head okay? Spare me the concerned mother act.
Just tell me where Lex is.
Do you have to be so emotional? It's disappointing.
I know you're upset that Lex outsmarted you.
He hurt your poor little heart.
Well, at least, I have a heart.
An overrated organ.
Romanticized by poets and frivolous women.
You're no better than simpering Eve Tessmacher chasing Lex like a lovesick puppy.
So Eve is in love with Lex.
Your brother gave you every opportunity to work with him.
To come back into the fold, and you turned him down.
I will never be on the same side as you and Lex.
Of course not.
The only side you'll ever be on is the side of your friends.
The Danvers sisters, Jimmy Olsen.
Oh, what those besties would think if they knew what you've really been up to.
I can only imagine what went down.
Weeks helping Lex.
Recrafting the drug you claimed would save humanity.
To save him.
The two of you working side by side.
[INHALES DEEPLY] I can smell your fear, Lena.
Doing everything in your power to make sure your friends never find out your complicity.
They would hate you.
And then you'd find yourself utterly alone.
This is foolish.
You don't know anything.
Because Lex has deserted you.
I may be in prison, but I'm not the one who's going to be deserted.
[BUZZER SOUNDS] [DOOR SHUTS] Hey, there you are.
I went to look for you at the hospital, but they said you already left.
I got better.
I thought the FBI had already gone through this.
Have you changed your mind about me? No, of course not.
I came to ask for your help.
I'm sorry.
It's been a day.
Well, I have been tasked with tracking down Lex.
And I'd like to ask you about Eve Tessmacher.
You're gonna use Eve to get to Lex.
I think she's the weak link.
I want in on the investigation.
Lena, you were just assaulted.
Yeah, and I'm not a cop, but I know Eve.
But you should know that I'm working with Supergirl on this.
Finding Lex is more important than any differences we may have.
- Yeah.
- I know just where to start.
[BEEPS] So this is the team.
[ALEX] Yes, Lena has joined us.
Uh, so why are we in 'burbs? Well, I realized that Eve is in love with Lex.
Crazy Lex-girlfriend.
Which indicates her heart drives her actions.
And she spoke fondly of an elderly aunt, her only family in the city.
Mary Tessmacher.
This is her house.
Eve used to visit every Sunday.
So Eve might still be in contact with her.
Good lead.
[KNOCKING] Can I help you ladies? [BEN] Thank you very much.
Senator Granberry, good to see you.
Thanks for coming.
This is your son.
George Lockwood, ma'am.
I was just giving him an intro on how things get done in Washington.
As a matter of fact, we were just talking about how this repeal is moving even faster than the Homestead Act of [SENATOR GRANBERRY] I've changed my mind.
I'm not voting for the repeal.
Excuse me? What? Uh, okay.
But if [CHUCKLES] If you vote no, then your block's gonna vote no, and that's eight votes we'll lose.
If we suddenly strip rights from powerful aliens, how are they gonna react? Badly.
If they protest, revolt, and we have a war on our hands, then that is bad for humans.
I understand, you're acting out of fear.
But maybe, just maybe you should fear the common man.
Agent Liberty may play to your steel town base, but not here.
Welcome to Washington.
[GASPS] You're awake.
You're still here.
How is this even possible? I only stayed because you fainted.
Now that you've regained consciousness, I'm going.
[J'ONN J'ONZZ] Wait, you can't just leave.
After everything we went through, for you to pass the Symbols onto me You can imagine how disappointed I was when you resorted to violence.
That's why I was trying to contact you.
I need your help.
I'm trying to I'm trying to figure out who I'm supposed to be.
The easiest question in the world.
[STAMMERING] What's the answer? For you? No idea.
You figure it out.
[CHUCKLES] I ask you for help and all you do is turn up and you make it worse.
I'm the last Green Martian.
If I lose myself, we not only lose Martian religion, we lose everything.
Our entire history.
Every memory you ever gave me.
My wife.
My daughters.
So this is urgent.
Oh, yeah.
I know what will solve this problem.
What? What? What? A nice hot cup of c'off'ee.
What? I'll stay for one.
Oh, Mary's in Florida soaking up the rays, and I'm plant sitting.
Is Mary in some kind of trouble? No, uh, not at all.
We're just here because of her niece, Eve.
Do you know her? Well, she's my fave cousin and bowling bud at the fam reunion.
There's no way she's really involved with that Lex Luthor.
- He's a creeper.
- What was your name again? Bitsie, with an I-E.
Do you have any daughters, Bitsie? Yes, twins.
They're at camp.
I miss those little chipmunks.
When was the last time you saw Eve? Months ago.
Oh, unless you count seeing her gorgeous mug splashed across the news.
She always said how amazing it was to work for you, Ms.
Were you sick at all, Bitsie? Me? Healthy as a horse.
Why? Uh, just something Eve said about a cousin with cancer who had two daughters.
[OVEN DINGS] My blood orange cake.
Want some? I can never turn down cake.
She's lying.
Her heart's as fast as a hummingbird's.
[LENA] Yeah, I think so too.
Uh, Bitsie, your Your hands.
Oh, ow! Ahhh! Your hands should be scalded, they're not even red.
You were sick.
You were on hospice.
Eve cured you with the serum I made for James.
She was here.
I want you out of my aunt's house! I drink a lot of milk? - Oh.
- Drop it.
You can't take it out of me.
I don't want to be sick again.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Hey, we are not here to hurt you.
Eve saved me.
She's good.
I hear you.
But if the world is wrong about Eve, then tell us what's right.
Eve came here when she was on the run from you and the police.
She risked getting caught to help me.
She did a good thing for you.
But the longer she's with Lex, the more trouble she's in, and the more danger.
Help us find her.
[KNIFE CLATTERS] I don't know where she went.
But I know she used to work out of a lab at National City University.
Eve had a secret lab? Seems there are a lot of things about Eve that were secret.
This way Ah.
A-ha! Okay, when you get the signal, go that way exactly 900 meters.
I speak English better than you.
It's not a contest.
And put this on first.
What? You really look exactly like her.
Wow, I could fit ten of my apartments into this office.
[SIGHS] Yeah, it's not bad, huh? What you got there? Referrals for post-trauma psychologists.
All in National City.
Come on.
Come, look Look, Kelly, I told you, I don't need help.
I don't need help.
James, Lex tried to kill you eight times.
If you would just listen to me for once in your life, maybe you would realize this has nothing to do with Lex.
James, you have a wall full of televisions and they're all off.
[CHUCKLES] Because you know that if you turn them on, you'll see Lex's face staring back at you.
- Oh, is that right? - You are avoiding a trigger.
Lex came after me in the first place to get to Superman who's off planet.
Manchester Black shot me, who's dead now, so I'm no longer in danger, thank you.
But you are irritable, jumpy, sweaty, all psychological responses to triggers.
And those are just the symptoms that I can see.
God forbid you have a flashback.
'Cause I know you'd never tell me.
You know, you're not the only one who can analyze things, Kelly.
The only times that you've come to visit me are when I was in the hospital.
Because I was weak and you could tell me what to do, right? James, I'm just trying to help.
Then help me by listen I'm sorry.
I should, I I'm just, I'm busy, I'm overwhelmed, I'm just This, this is, uh This is probably a really good time for you to go home.
[LOCK BEEPS] [DOOR OPENS] Whole room's lined with lead.
Eve may not have been tidy, but she was smart.
Maybe not that smart.
[GRUNTS] That's Harun-El.
It is.
You kept this? My mother told you how dangerous it is.
I didn't keep it.
I gave your mother what I had, but I made more so I could realize its potential.
All of my current research is based on this.
This is how Lex had powers.
Is that a part of your research, too? This is why I didn't want to work with you.
Because every time I think things are getting better with us, you display an inherent distrust of my intentions.
What is so wrong about helping humans protect themselves? Because someone like Lex could get ahold of the technology and use it for evil, which is exactly what happened.
You look past all of the good we've done and see red whenever you feel vulnerable.
[ALEX] Lena saved Argo with this.
She rescued Sam, she cured Bitsie's cancer, and she saved James' life.
You're right.
- Excuse me? - [SUPERGIRL] You're right.
If you hadn't made Harun-El, James wouldn't be alive, and you saved him in a way I couldn't.
I do see red sometimes, and it's not an ego thing or allegiance, or anything like that.
I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders.
And since Superman left, and Lex has been free, it feels a lot heavier.
If my enemies are strengthened, if I'm weakened in the slightest bit, I could lose.
And I just can't I can't lose.
I'm sorry, Lena.
Thank you.
I appreciate that.
Bygones? [BOTH] Bygones.
So what's the answer? H'ronmeer save me.
This again? I need guidance.
Why won't you help me? Why should I? I'm not the one who failed at the one task I have.
Or was it another Green Martian who erased the mind of the DEO colonel, who reached into Manchester Black's brain to inflict pain upon him, and opened a channel for him to access your mind so he could defile my grave site and steal the Staff of K'hollar, which he could've used to destroy planet Earth? Everything I did, I did in the name of peace.
- You killed him.
- He was a killer.
Then so are you.
Well, what would you have me do? Sit around and pray all day while the world around me burns like you did on Mars? At least I didn't run.
I have been trying to make up for that.
By protecting this planet.
Trying and failing.
If I'm such a failure, why did you trust me with the Symbols? Because you said you could handle it.
You insisted I shouldn't have! I tried to be you, Father, but I can't! And you should never have asked me.
I'm not a man of peace! And if that means I have to give up the Symbols, and Martian religion has to die, then so be it.
At least I will know who I am! And who are you? I'm the Martian Manhunter! [MYR'NN] Yes.
You are.
The blueprints to my mother's prison.
Ugh, okay, did Eve ever mention, like, a family pet? Um Here.
- [KEYBOARD CLACKING] - "I love Lex"? Gross.
All right, let's see what Eve was up to.
Uh [ALEX] Is that her experiment log? Looks like she was trying to extract my serum from someone after treatment.
Look at this.
[LENA] It's a Cadmus-13.
It's the same type of gun that shot James.
[ALEX] Oh, Metallo Protocol.
Lex and Eve were trying to use Cadmus' Metallo technology.
And look whose name is on the test subject list.
Otis Graves.
That must be how they brought him back to life.
[ALEX] Well, he wasn't the first one.
Looks like there were five failed test subjects before him.
What do you think happened to them? [EXPLOSION] [GRUNTING] - [GUN COCKS] - Alex, no! [SUPERGIRL] I'll distract him and you make a run for it.
No, the Kryptonite will kill you.
I should've brought grenades.
I think I can make one with some help from your stun gun.
Go! [GRUNTS] [GRUNTING] Hey, Franken Berry.
No, don't, don't.
That's a Kryptonite heart.
It was used to reanimate the second Metallo.
And the first.
And possibly Otis.
Much better than donuts.
Wait, Eve Tessmacher was working with Otis Graves, and Otis Graves was working with Agent Liberty, correct? So even Lex might have a connection to Ben Lockwood.
[BRAINY] Well, transitive property strikes again.
I need to have a chat with Lockwood.
See what his connection to Eve and Lex might be.
I'll talk to Lillian.
It's the last thing I wanna do, but she gave me some info on Otis a while ago, and she always knows more than she says.
[BRAINY] Before you go, they ran a ballistics test on the Cadmus-13 gun you found in Eve's lab.
It's a definite match to the bullet that shot James.
Eve shot James? Which means that Lex was behind this, as well.
But why? Just when you think you've got to the bottom of Eve's betrayal, it gets deeper and deeper.
James deserves to know who shot him.
That his attacker's still out there.
I'll tell him before I go to D.
[SIGHS] We will find Eve.
I promise.
You tricked me into getting angry.
You were angry already.
Just pushing it down.
And you were right to be angry with me, J'onn, I wasn't clear.
I said I wished for you to promote peace, but I never intended for you to become me.
I meant only that you should help the world in whatever state is true to you.
When I found you again, I was so proud of the Martian you had become.
I never meant to make you feel you had to change, J'onn.
I'm sorry.
I failed to impart my unconditional love for you.
I'm so sorry I couldn't be the keeper of the Sacred Symbols, Father.
You were able to keep the Symbols alive a little longer.
That brought comfort to an old Martian.
The important thing is, you know who you are.
[CLICKS TONGUE] Maybe there's another way.
H'ronmeer gave us the Symbols in the heart of the desert of T'ozz.
I could return them there.
A hard journey.
And if you succeed, they will lie dormant until someone worthy comes to claim them.
Maybe somebody will.
[MYR'NN] Hmm.
Thank you, Father, for all your help.
You know, J'onn, I'm just an extension of your memory of me.
Any answers you found, they came from inside you.
Yeah, I know.
But it was still really good to see you.
It was good to see you, too Martian Manhunter.
[JAMES] Hey.
How's the hunt for Eve coming? Well, um, we found out she revived Otis, which connects her to Ben Lockwood, so I am going to D.
now to question him.
So Lockwood and Luthor may be connected? We think.
But, uh That's actually not the reason I came to talk to you.
[SIGHS] We found a gun in Eve's lab.
The DEO matched the bullets to the one you were shot with.
Manchester Black didn't shoot you, James.
It was Eve.
So that means Lex is behind this, too.
[MACKENZIE] Did you see? The Alien Amnesty Act was just repealed.
What? [SENATOR GRANBERRY] to repeal the Alien Amnesty Act.
I'm sure some of you are surprised, - but I can assure you - [KARA] Eve.
Did you see that? That was Eve.
She's in D.
[LILLIAN] That was quick.
Your friends betray you already? No, Mother.
I came to give you this.
The blueprints to the prison? Lex was coming for you.
I hate to say I told you so.
Really? 'Cause I just love saying it.
Look at your cell, Mother.
Do you see your name, Mother? Written in red, in Lex's handwriting.
We both know what that means.
He wouldn't.
Lex was coming for you.
But not to free you.
To murder you.
The question is, Mother, why would he bother to come and kill you? Unless you knew something.
Something that could be used to find him? So who are you gonna bet your life on? The psychopath or me? The only person who can or will protect you.
You can tell me what you know when you're ready.
I'm patient.
[CROWD CLAMORING] The senators are making their way in now.
Until the President arrives, we will only be doing photos.
No sign of Eve down here yet.
Maybe I'd better look up there.
Senator Granberry, excuse me for a second.
Uh, what happened? Why did you change your vote? [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] Just take the win.
No questions, Mr.
You're aware that Otis Graves helped Lex Luthor escape, aren't you? Otis Graves is deceased.
Actually, he's not.
I have nothing to do with Lex Luthor.
Sure about that? [INDISTINCT SHOUTING] Supergirl.
How on earth did you find me? The only car protected with an X-ray scatter field? Oh, poo.
Out of the car.
Enjoy the show.
- Come on.
Let's go.
- [MAN] Take her out! - [GUNSHOTS] [GRUNTING] Oh, my God.
[PEOPLE SCREAMING] [GRUNTS] [BREATHING HEAVILY] My fellow Americans by now you have surely heard that the heart of our great nation was attacked by someone many of you trusted with your security and your hopes.
She attacked in retaliation to the repeal of the Alien Amnesty Act, ignoring our democracy in favor of her own alien brute form of justice.
The American people have welcomed these aliens, they've repaid our hospitality with violence.
But we are not weak, we are Americans.
We are humans.
I am hereby enacting martial law for our protection.
And, Supergirl, if you are watching, make no mistake, this act of horrific terrorism will not go unanswered.
You are now public enemy number one.
There's no way Supergirl would do something like this.
I know.
I need your help.
Think you can stick around? I'm not going anywhere.
[SIGHS] This is J'onn J'onzz, private investigator.
Please leave a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
[BEEPS] [WATCH BEEPS] Did you call me here to arrest me? We know you didn't do this.
That you would never do something like this.
- [SIGHS] - We're on your side, Supergirl.
We're gonna find out the truth.
