Supergirl (2015) s04e20 Episode Script

Will the Real Miss Tessmacher Please Stand Up?

Previously on Supergirl I want to be a mom.
I can have a family of my own.
I wanna introduce the world to Dreamer.
I want this Dreamer detained.
Dreamer! - [GRUNTS.]
I don't know what happened to you, but I'll find out.
I thought you were in Smallville.
I forgot my journal.
You really look exactly like her.
People actually believe that I attacked the White House.
I want to take Lex down and put an end to all of this.
- Let's go! - He didn't do anything! Your children, they just lost their father.
I would hate to see them lose their mother, too.
No! Sweetheart.
Lex bought a missile base? Guess we're going to Kaznia.
I'm not anxious.
I think it would just be better, faster, if I flew alone.
I designed this jet myself.
There's no faster way to fly.
- Right.
- And if you want stealth, this has got military grade cloaking.
Yeah, but you don't have to come with me.
I need to look Lex in the eye when we catch him.
I need him to know it was me.
Feels like I'm back on deployment.
Hey, at least that's one upside to martial law.
Maybe you feel like you're at home.
Argh! - You okay? Got a bum knee.
It really sucks when your body starts breaking down.
Sometimes I wonder when I can't run as fast as I used to, I'm like, "Oh, right, I'm not 20 anymore.
" No one is spared.
James will be.
Must be strange to have a sibling with superpowers, huh? [CELL PHONE RINGING.]
- Oh, hey, hang on one sec.
- Yeah.
This is Alex.
Yeah I'm sorry.
What? That That fast? It Oh Okay, yes.
Um Okay.
Thank Yup.
Thank you.
What is it? Um I should I should go home.
Are you okay? Who was that? That was the adoption agency.
I'm gonna be a mother.
When I was nine years old, I chipped my front tooth.
But I was in my school play that weekend.
I went to tell my mom that I couldn't do it, and she just smiled at me.
She had painted her front tooth black.
You were always there for me and I know you always will be.
I love you.
Um Secretary Lockwood? I didn't think you were coming in today.
Where are we with the criminal alien who calls herself Dreamer? - I'm not sure what you - Wait a second.
This is the Department of Extra-Normal Operations, is it not? What do we what do we do here at the Department of Extra-Normal Operations? We monitor Extra-Normal No, no, no! Aliens.
Right? That was your You were gonna say alien.
Well, you're correct.
And Dreamer is an alien.
And these days, we don't just monitor aliens, we hunt them down.
So, have you hunted down Dreamer yet? Huh? No? Okay.
Here's an easy one.
What about the alien who killed my wife? Colonel Haley Colonel Haley isn't here.
I am.
All right.
Listen up.
An illegal alien has commandeered your airwaves and called for an uprising against your government.
We have to find her.
We have to find out who she is.
Find every human and alien whom she is working with.
And, I have an idea, let's start with James Olsen because I would like to know how the hell he got superpowers.
Got to say, guys, I'm not a huge fan of this.
I should think discovering you're inflammable would be an emotional net-posiitve.
How are you not more excited? [CHUCKLES.]
Because you're the exciting one.
Not so mild-mannered cub reporter turned inspirational superhero? I'm just happy to say I knew you when.
Thanks, boss.
Now, I'm gonna hit you with this and we're gonna see what happens.
And I'm gonna ask you to turn it down because I'm not ready for that yet.
Ben Lockwood is at the DEO.
But his wife's funeral is today.
I did not account for this.
Alex just texted me moments ago saying she was dealing with a personal matter and Colonel Haley's in D.
trying to revoke Ben Lockwood's clearance.
It's best I return immediately.
You think you can handle him? The real question is can he handle me? Be careful.
So - Hammer time? - Not in the face, kiddo.
Not in the face.
- Mmm! - [CHUCKLES.]
I know, right? This plane makes its own coffee, cleans its own toilets and flies itself.
There's no pilot? Well, humans make mistakes.
My technology doesn't.
Speaking of mistakes, I should have told you about Lex from the beginning.
Trust is still a learned skill for me.
It doesn't come naturally.
Well, no matter what, we are always on the same side.
Don't worry.
It's just a lightning storm.
Is lightning usually purple? - [LIGHTNING CRACKS.]
Get your seat belt back on.
I'm gonna land this plane.
Kara Kara, brace yourself.
We're gonna make an emergency landing.
That's gonna be a huge nope for me.
Get your oxygen mask on, okay? I'm gonna restart the engine.
Are you kidding? Okay, I got this.
I got this.
Okay I gotta get the power back on.
Engine engaged.
- Yes.
Autopilot rebooting.
Manual landing required.
Oh, my God.
Kara, you okay? [GASPS.]
I must have passed out.
God! I hate flying.
That lightning wasn't natural.
Someone brought us down on purpose.
Well, let's hope we didn't ruin the element of surprise.
This is so odd.
I would've thought Lex would have an army behind him.
- Must have left days ago.
- What about the lightning? Automated system.
- Very Lex.
- Where did they go? [LENA.]
Oh, my God.
What was Lex doing? Experimenting? On aliens.
He was trying to siphon and harness their powers.
He was torturing them.
These all say AmerTek on them.
Paper files? Seems so low-tech.
She always said you couldn't hack paper.
It's Eve.
This is her handwriting.
Let's start reading.
Okay, well, this is the birth mother's file.
It's got her story, it's got her medical history.
Oh, my God.
She's only 17.
Okay, take a breath.
No, there's no time to breathe.
She's already in labor.
- What? - Yeah.
She hid the pregnancy from everybody.
Usually, the birth mother looks at prospective parent profiles and then she chooses three.
But in this case, since she's about to have the baby, she's only chosen one.
And that's me.
Alex, that's incredible.
It's insane.
I mean, I have 12 hours to decide if I want to have a child and then get to Portsmouth where the baby is gonna be born.
Look, I filled out the adoption application a year ago and I haven't heard a single word since then.
Not one word.
And now, all of a sudden, I have 12 hours to make the biggest decision in my life.
Do you wanna be a mother? More than anything.
Of course.
I I mean, I left my fiancee over this.
It She didn't wanna have kids.
That's that's so hard.
I mean, the world is completely upside down, Kelly.
Lex Luthor is still out there and I'm the one who's supposed to catch him and then there's martial law.
I mean, I can't How would I even get out on the street and get diapers? I will find you some diapers.
It's not about the diapers.
I know it's not.
But you have to take a beat and breathe and look at the issues one at a time.
What I really need is to be able to talk to my sister and she's unreachable.
She's in Kaznia.
If Kara was here, what would she say? Okay.
If Kara was here, she would tell me that this has always been my dream.
And she would say that it's never gonna be the perfect time.
And that despite villains on the loose and martial law, this is a gift and it would be sacrilege not to accept it.
Sounds like you have your answer.
I went through Haley's office.
Found some files.
Lena Luthor's been working out of the DEO.
Why? She's got a whole building with her name on it.
Maybe we'll find some answers in her lab.
Show me.
Double sprock.
May I be of some assistance? Open it.
I can't.
That's an order.
Yet, it would appear that Article 351 Section 6 of the DEO Code of Behavior does not make exceptions for the President's cabinet.
- Cooper, sidearm.
This is Kopy.
He attacked that carnival last fall.
I wrote an article about him.
Yeah, he could clone himself.
Not exactly.
He could split himself like a cell.
And, uh, each copy was more powerful than the original.
But the longer they were separated, the dumber they got.
Those are DEO power-dampening cuffs.
All of the test subjects here were prisoners of the DEO Desert Facility.
That's why Lex was spying on it.
What is he building? - [LOUD THUD.]
Is someone there? Come out now and we won't hurt you.
- [GASPS.]
- Eve? Kara.
You found me.
I was so scared.
Where's Lex? I saw what he was doing to those poor aliens and I just couldn't stand by him anymore.
Cut the crap, Eva Braun.
You're a backstabber and a liar.
You're right.
I am lying.
But I really do love you guys.
I just love Lex more.
I'm always gonna be on his side.
You're going to jail.
But whether it's an American prison or a Siberian hole in the ground, is up to me right now.
So, you're gonna tell us what we wanna know.
Yes, I am.
I'm at the hotel.
How is she feeling? Does she know that I'm here? Oh, okay, okay, good.
Good, good, good.
I see.
Yes, I understand.
Thank you.
- Well? - She's only dilated to four centimeters so we still have a while to wait, you know.
But, um, I mean, she's Her vitals are good, and there's no signs of distress, and everything is just progressing normally.
Why do you look like it's not great? She doesn't wanna see me until after she has the baby.
That's understandable.
Yeah, of course.
Yeah, you're right.
Of course I'm right.
Now, try to relax.
- Hmm.
- Eat some chocolate.
What if my apartment isn't safe for a baby? You know, I mean, how do you know if you have lead-based paint? That is a simple test.
I've got wires everywhere.
And all of my all of my outlets are exposed.
That is totally fixable.
And your baby's not gonna be crawling anytime soon.
Right, but what if it, like, flings itself into an outlet? Do you hear yourself? Alex, you're just scared.
I'm not scared.
I'm terrified.
Let's start with the aliens.
We know you've been trying to harness their powers.
Why? I don't Eve Kara! Hi.
You were about to tell us about the aliens.
What does Lex do to them? Lex likes to keep his plans compartmentalized.
Even from the love of his life? You think I'm the love of his life? - Oh, I think you're - He trusted you for a reason.
You were helping him experiment on DEO prisoners.
How did he get access to them? Someone inside helped him.
You're saying this was an authorized prison transfer? - Yes.
- Who authorized it? I'm not sure.
Someone in the government.
Someone high up.
What do you keep looking at? These claw marks lead somewhere.
Hey - Dad! - George.
George! What are you doing here? You left in the middle of Mother's funeral.
Yes, and I know.
But I had to.
You want me to catch your mother's killer, don't you? Of course I do, but you You left me alone in a church full of people and I just lost my mother.
And I need you.
I know, but we need justice, son.
First your grandfather, now your mother.
Everything that I am doing is for their memories.
Sir, we found something I think you're gonna wanna see.
And for you.
I just don't wanna fail.
Why do you think you'd fail? My mom was, uh She was incredible with me.
I mean, she always just hugged me when I cried, and she fixed up my bumps and my bruises and work on my science projects with me.
- Hmm.
- And she made me feel so loved.
And, you know, for a lot of my formative and toughest years, she did it alone and she is the one that inspired me to think that I can do this on my own.
But now that this is I mean, it's right in front of me, and I'm just not sure that I can even be half the mother that's she's been for me.
Okay, look.
I've only known you for a short time.
But from what I've seen, you're the most nurturing person that I've ever met.
You take care of your friends, your sister, you took care of my brother when he was in the hospital.
And even me.
Who you barely knew.
You care too much to fail, Alex.
I mean, you are gonna be an amazing mother.
Did anyone ever tell you you should be a shrink? Mmm, once or twice.
- All right, give me the chocolate.
- It's all gone.
- What? - I know.
What is this place? This is Harun-El.
This is all equipment to hurt Kryptonians.
This is a staging area.
Can't be.
Looks like Lex is helping the Kaznians to invade America.
That's the plan.
But a Kaznian invasion on American soil will be like a child throwing rocks at a tank.
Lex has a tank.
- Eve.
- Tank.
All right.
All right, Tank.
Lex must have done something to her.
Trigger word.
That's Supergirl.
Lexie calls her Ryzhaya Dch.
That's "Red Daughter.
" [ALEX.]
That's pretty badass.
Wait, but check out the jogging strollers.
You could take the baby on a run.
Look at that.
Okay, that is definitely the way to go.
Oh, my gosh.
Oh, my gosh.
She must be fully dilated.
That means That means the baby's coming.
That means that Oh, my gosh.
Yes, this is Alex, yes.
What? No, I No, I know.
I know that you said that that could happen, but you also said that there was a very minimal chance of it happening in this case.
Are you certain? Yeah.
I Yeah, I understand what you're saying.
Okay Okay.
Thank What happened? Um The grandparents called up, um, a priest to talk to the mother and she ended up She changed her mind and she's gonna keep She's gonna keep the baby.
Is she a clone? No.
Not exactly.
All these biometrics have been affected by Harun-El.
We know it duplicates Kryptonians.
It split Sam from Reign.
Supergirl must have come in contact to it.
But how does Lex fit into this? Kaznians brought him in.
He's helping them control her.
Supergirl would never work with Lex.
It's not Supergirl.
She's a blank slate.
Or at least she was.
What are you saying? It's a question of nature versus nurture.
She's been tested, trained, and indoctrinated by Lex in a prison in one of the most oppressive regimes in the world.
But she has to have good in her.
There was good in Sam.
And Reign was a monster.
Lex has created the very thing he fears the most.
Kryptonian weapon trained as a killer.
And in Lex's hands, it's more dangerous than an atomic bomb.
And he has it pointed right at America.
She is not an it.
Lex may have molded her but there has to be some part of Supergirl still in her.
Red Daughter Is she still here? Eve.
Where is she? [CHUCKLING.]
With Lex, obviously.
But the Harun-El can't duplicate humans.
He used Kopy.
The two of you shouldn't be here.
But as long as you are, stay a while.
We've got ten minutes before this building comes crashing down.
Come on.
This is it.
This is what gave James Olsen powers.
Sir Everyone involved in this project thought the same thing.
Wouldn't it be great if humans had superpowers? James Olsen was given a carefully calibrated highly refined dose in the midst of a medical emergency.
Wait, wait, wait.
Hold up.
Hold up.
Let him finish.
What you're holding is a raw, undiluted experimental serum that will, in all likelihood, kill you.
"In all likelihood.
" That means it might not.
I know the odds.
They're not good.
You're grieving.
You wanna find the person responsible.
Your son needs you now.
Sir, we found the alien that killed your wife.
Get our agents over there right now.
They're all out searching.
Then assemble a DEO strike team.
I'll lead.
- I'll go right.
- I'll go left.
Oh, my God.
Damn it.
Kara? No.
Hey, there's no way out back this way.
Is there No, no, um There's there's just Hey, it's okay.
There's nothing to be afraid of, right? We've been through worse scrapes than this together, okay? - Right.
So - Wait, wait, Lena There We can go up.
The air vent.
Kara, your turn.
I, uh I forgot my tape recorder.
Kara? Kara, come on.
Freeze! Don't move! Where's the Brevakk who killed my wife? - [OFFICER.]
That's her! - [COOPER.]
I got her.
Take her out of here.
And rendition the lot of them for enhanced interrogation.
Secretary, we found who we were looking for.
The rest of these aliens are innocent of any crimes.
They were harboring a murderer.
Well, thank God for Eve's paper fetish.
The DEO prisoner transfers.
Signed and authorized by Sarah Walker.
The President's Chief of Staff? She is the mole in the government.
She's working with Lex.
It's Eve.
I'll get her, you get the evidence.
No, Lena, wait.
Secretary Lockwood.
The hero and the blood traitor.
I was hoping you would come by.
Arrest them.
Oh, good.
You found my plane.
I hoped it wouldn't come to this.
Really? - 'Cause I did.
This is a surprise.
Arrest them! No! Each one of us swore an oath to defend this country and its constitution.
The Secretary is asking you to compromise that oath.
I urge you.
Follow your hearts.
Not your orders.
Thank you.
My turn.
Lex was only using you, you know.
Lex loves me.
The only person Lex loves is himself.
Everybody, get down.
Earth first.
Stand down or suffer.
I wish you didn't make me do that.
Thank you, Kara.
Snake on a plane.
You think you have the weight of the world's pain on your shoulders.
But you don't.
You created this pain, this fear.
You know nothing about me, alien.
I am the Martian Manhunter.
I know you and you should know this The last man who stood against me met a downfall all of his own making.
There will be no downfall.
I am the law.
For now.
But regimes change.
The tanker.
Trust me.
Let's get these aliens somewhere safe.
Kara! Kara.
I'm okay.
Everything's fine.
Oh, God.
Come here.
Oh, God.
Thank God you're all right.
- Did you find Tessmacher? - Yeah.
It wasn't the real Tessmacher.
Maybe it never was.
But it's okay.
Now we know what Lex has been up to and who was helping him.
Now we know everything.
I'm so sorry I left you alone back there.
Put you in danger.
I was fine.
I am fine.
When I saw Eve, I just saw red.
Shot me right back to the initial betrayal.
I wasn't thinking clearly.
You don't have to explain anything to me.
I know how much she hurt you.
Kara! Please! I'm trying to apologize to you.
That explosion could have killed you.
It it wouldn't have.
Lena I don't let my guard down ever.
And I did with Eve and she betrayed me.
I let her in and she lied to me.
Every day.
To my face.
About who she was.
And that's what hurts.
I don't I don't know if I'll ever recover from it, but I know there is no way I could ever trust anyone ever again if it wasn't for your friendship and your integrity.
It just It means the world to me, Kara.
I'm always gonna be here for you.
When I left my fiancee, I, uh It's hard to even say that.
I felt like I would never heal.
But then I did.
And then, this whole experience just feels like that wound just got ripped right back open again.
And this time, I don't I don't know if I can survive that.
- Wounds heal.
- Into scars.
That fade in time.
Some people leave indelible marks and you get to wear them like a badge of honor of what you learn from the experience.
Yeah? What did your scars teach you? That there are always second chances.
If you're brave enough to take the leap.
It's easier said than done.
I was engaged.
James never mentioned that.
Yeah, well, he didn't know.
No one did.
Because I was in love with my sergeant.
And we couldn't be out while serving abroad.
What happened? She died while on patrol.
And I couldn't mourn her.
I was just numb.
Alone in my pain.
And, I, um I didn't face it until I was back Stateside a few months later.
I thought that wound would never heal.
And then I got her farewell note.
Service members send them sometimes before tours of duty in case they don't come back home.
I never thought that I'd have to read hers.
She said that she had every faith that I would find another person who would make me smile.
And so will you.
You will get a second chance at everything.
Don't lose hope.
Today, this is absolutely a deep wound.
But someday, it'll be a faded scar.
- Son - Don't.
I came to you and you turned away from me.
You have to understand, son.
I had to find Mom's killer.
Right? Did it help? You know, I saw you today.
Just another bitter, angry man.
George? George.
I did this all to keep you and your mother safe.
You did this for yourself.
You're responsible for her death.
You killed her with this stupid fight of yours and I will never forgive you.
I hate you.
- Red Daughter? - Yup.
I know I should be afraid of her, but I kind of feel bad for her.
I mean, if I had landed anywhere else, that could have been me.
A refugee raised as a weapon.
But if Lena had found out in that moment who you really are I almost told her myself.
Lex already knows.
What stopped you from telling Lena? The past few months, she's been betrayed by Lex, by Eve So, if she found out after all this time I was lying I couldn't bear to put her through that again.
But, when this is all over, and Lex is behind bars, I am going to tell her the truth.
Even if she hates me.
I have to.
It's the right thing to do.
It is.
I think you're right.
And what are you gonna do about what you found on that map? My duty as an American citizen.
- Ah.
- Thank you for seeing me.
I have nothing but respect for Cat Grant's media empire.
- And nothing but fear of her wrath.
Is that Kryptonite? Ah.
Sharp eye, young lady.
Ever since Supergirl attacked the White House we've added some necessary precautions to, uh, keep me safe.
So, where do we start? The United States is in danger, sir.
I came here to warn you.
Warn me? Of what? Lex Luthor has allied with the Kaznian government and they are going to attack.
And Supergirl didn't attack you.
A clone that worked for Lex did.
And your Chief of Staff is in collusion with him.
Do you do you have any proof? I wanna thank you for bringing this to my attention.
Now, Miss Danvers, uh Has anyone else seen this evidence? No, I I thought it was more important to warn you as soon as possible.
You did the right thing.
