Titans (2018) s02e11 Episode Script

E.L._.O.

1 [DICK.]
Previously on Titans That was so rude of me.
I lied.
I told you that Jericho was dead when I got to the church, but he wasn't.
He was alive.
He died trying to save me from his father.
I'm out.
I'm going with her.
I'm out, too.
If it's forgiveness you want, you should try in there.
They might feel differently.
[SLADE.]
I sentence you to live alone.
Forever knowing that your Titans lives and breathes somewhere, but you can never be with them.
Not until you've paid for your crime.
You didn't deserve him.
[DICK.]
Jericho.
[BLACKFIRE.]
We could rule together.
It's always been a dream of mine.
- I'm coming for you, Blackfire.
- Good.
The problem isn't where we go.
It's us.
Maybe we should be apart.
- [SNARLS.]
- [SCREAMS.]
[GROANING.]
- No! No! [SCREAMS.]
- [GARGOYLE SCREECHING.]
[LUIS.]

Cuff him! [DICK GROANS.]
[GLASS BREAKING.]
[MERCY.]
Change of plan.
Bring the tiger in alive.
[GUN FIRING.]
It's okay.
I'm not here to hurt you.
Just come home.
[SOFT VIOLIN MUSIC PLAYS.]
Don't lie to me, Rachel.
You can't even control yourself.
I saw you yesterday.
In the training room.
You couldn't bring it back in.
[LAUGHING.]
Not to mention that creepy black cloud of razor blades that nearly took my hand off.
[MOANS.]
[LAUGHING.]
At least now I know how you got those scars on your back.
[LAUGHING.]

[DICK MUMBLING.]
I wasn't here.
I couldn't see.
I couldn't see.
[MUMBLING.]
I didn't know.
I couldn't see anything.
Somebody's caught a bug.
[SIGHS IN EXASPERATION.]
Oh, fuck.
Bad news.
[SIGHS.]
I'm alone.
All alone.
Yeah.
I see that.
Blessed isolation.
You have arrived.
The penance palace.
[COUGHS.]
But you brought a virus with you.
Or perhaps the rat did.
Prisons are harbors of pestilence.
It's no surprise you fell prey.
Just need to sleep.
Sleeping is all you've been doing.
It's time to wake up.
And stop talking to myself.
[BRUCE.]
You've done a lot of talking lately.
To Jericho's mother and then Slade.
[SIGHS.]
One sheep, two sheep Yeah, that always works.
So, you go to Adeline's house and she tells you to fuck off, and then she does a very curious thing.
She says, if it's forgiveness you want, you should try in there.
[SIGHS.]
What do you want? What I get hung up on is Adeline.
She sent you in to talk to a man who wants to kill you.
[SIGHS.]
They have their own arrangement.
I'm not a marriage counselor.
It seemed like she wanted your help.
They might feel "differently.
" When she sent you in there, that's what she said.
She wasn't thinking straight.
I reminded her of what she lost.
[EXHALES.]
[SOFTLY.]

[SIGHS.]
Fuck! [RACHEL.]
What is that? Your past.
The Tower.
Uh upheaval.
It leads to a period of darkness.
Your present The moon.
The realm of dreams.
Your unconscious knows the way back to the light.
You have to trust your intuition.
It will guide you to your purpose.
Your future The hanged man.
Brutality is coming your way.
You must prepare to make a great sacrifice or suffer a great loss.
[DICK.]
Rachel! Holy shit.
You okay? Yeah.
I thought I saw something.
[DOOR CLICKS.]
[DOOR CREAKING.]
Eriel.
What's wrong? It's your dad.
Did that asshole follow you again? No.
He's dead.
Dead? What happened? [ERIEL.]
They don't know.
It looks like something attacked him.
Dani I'm sorry.
It wasn't me.
I know.
[SOFTLY.]
Hey.
I'm sorry.
I must have wished for this a thousand times.
I just never thought it would actually happen.
What? That man beat me until I pissed blood.
I hope he died screaming.
Four letter word.
"Pony Express stop in Nevada.
" I need a ticket, please.
Where would you like to go? Elko.
[EXHALES.]
[TICKET AGENT.]
Elko? Ha! That's the answer.
["WORSHIP" PLAYING.]
Oh, here it goes I feel like fire I feel like rain Is there like a Is there like a party here? It's just me.
I am the party.
[KISSING.]
Patiently, quietly faithfully, worship me - I'm not one of them, uh - [UNZIPS PANTS.]
Oh, boy, I'm not to often analyze beautiful strangers, but [MOANS.]
I think you might be having a manic episode.
A what? I'm a psychiatrist and you're showing signs of risky behavior.
Impulsivity.
I I think you might be seeking I think you might be seeking escapism by using me as a Like like a transitional object.
Yeah.
Isn't that what humans do? Console themselves with frivolous pleasures so they don't have to think for five fucking seconds? Why do you keep saying humans, like you're not one? I didn't ask you here for this.
I mean, I'm not here? I'm a trained professional.
Why not talk to me? ["WORSHIP" MUSIC CONTINUES INDISTINCTLY.]
[MUSIC STOPS.]
[POURS DRINK.]
Last year I forgot who I was.
[SCOFFS.]
And it was the first time in my life where I wasn't obsessed over my destiny.
Which allowed me to discover new things like friendship.
And love.
And freedom.
But now I'm stuck here.
With no home.
No family.
No destiny.
[CHUCKLES.]
I think you should go.
No, I I don't think you should be alone right now.
Go.
I do I do take all insurance.
It's Go.
[SOFTLY.]
Bye.
I'm just gonna I'm gonna Just Yeah.
[LOUD CRACKLING.]
[STATIC BUZZING.]
[ELKO JOE ON TV.]
See your old friend Elko Joe from Elko's Diner in downtown Elko, Nevada! Just head north on 123, or west on 98.
We have the best donuts north of Area 51.
Old-fashioneds, fritters, and, of course, jellies! Best on Earth! Had a bad day? Wash all the pain way.
Meet me at Elko's Diner on 123.
Time's running out.
[CRACKLING.]
[LOUD CRACKLING.]
[GARBLED VOICE ON RADIO.]
Dawn I need your help.
Please don't give up.
Dawn! Rachel? [BEEPING.]
What? You have to be kidding me.
[GASPS.]
[BRUCE.]
Special kid, that Jericho.
He had special abilities.
Those kind of kids need special attention.
I gave him plenty.
It's what got him killed.
So you've said, ad nauseam.
But maybe you're wrong.
Maybe you haven't given him enough.
You know, when I have a fever, I like to lie on the cold floor.
It drops the body temp and clarifies the mind.
That's why I used to lock the door when I got a cold.
Oh, is that what that was about? I always thought you were smoking.
[WATER SLOSHING.]
[SIGHS SHARPLY.]
We don't have much time.
What? Lives in the balance, Dick.
Lives in the balance.
I'm sorry, can you please be more clear? I'm trying.
Remember, you're in charge.
So, Jericho he spoke to you.
You just like fucking with me.
A little bit.
Yes.
But honestly, it's time to get out of here.
I'm not going anywhere.
I'm booked for an extended stay.
This is where I belong.
Look at yourself.
Moping in this hole like a coward.
So you made a few mistakes.
You got knocked down.
Guess what? Nobody cares.
All we care about is who gets up.
The pity party is officially over.
They were not just mistakes, somebody died.
Oh, cry me a fucking river.
[YELLS.]
The kid's father killed him, not you! But here you stand hair-shirted.
I think you just wanted a reason to give up.
Not just on Jericho, but everybody.
Rachel, Gar, Jason.
Am I leaving anybody out? [SNARLING ANGRILY.]
Quitter.
[GRUNTS.]
[GRUNTING.]
We're wasting time.
Fuck off! [GRUNTING.]
[WAVES SPLASHING SOFTLY IN DISTANCE.]
[SIGHS.]
Good morning, beautiful.
More like afternoon.
Why'd you let me sleep so long? You were tired.
We busted three drug rings last night.
Hey, I could have stopped at two.
Liar.
You wanted to do another.
[CHUCKLES.]
Any more eggs left? Nah.
These people weren't exactly expecting us to break in and then raid their fridge.
[CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKING.]
Stop being a creeper, Jason.
What's wrong? Nothing.
Just don't post that.
So what, we're not a couple? You're just slumming it with me? [SCOFFS.]
Maybe.
You don't know my life.
I could be a serial killer, or worse.
Yeah? Maybe I like serial killers.
Well, then maybe you should see a shrink.
Hey, why're you being so weird? Why are you being so nosey? You ask a lot of questions for someone who doesn't give any answers.
What does that mean? Well, you bring me to your hometown and the only thing we've done is beat up some crackheads.
You won't even take me to Wayne Manor.
Fuck Wayne Manor, Rose.
That was never the real me anyway.
Then show me the real.
No bullshit.
No filters.
The real Jason Todd.
Fine.
If I show you mine, then you tell me yours.
[SIGHS.]
[UNSHEATHES SWORD.]
Dick, look out! Dick! No! [SCREAMS.]
No! [GASPS IN FRIGHT.]
I need to get off.
- [DRIVER.]
Watch your step.
- Thank you.
- [BELL DINGS.]
- Hey! Hello! [KNOCKS ON DESK.]
Hello, is there anyone back there? [BELL DINGS.]
Where is Elko Joe? Who? I'd like a dozen donuts, please.
[SIGHS.]
Two actually.
Jellies.
Since they're the best on Earth.
Donuts? Yeah Jellies.
We don't make donuts.
Pie or cake.
You choose.
[FLY BUZZES.]
That's disgusting.
Here's the thing, um I'm having a really shitty few days.
So, if you could just try, that would be great.
And people in hell want ice water, lady.
We don't make donuts.
Listen! My sister killed my parents.
And she stole my damn crown and marooned me on this ridiculous planet.
So if you got flour, eggs and sugar back there, I'm going to need you to go and figure it out, okay? Donuts Coming right up.
[SIZZLES.]
What the fuck is wrong with me? [DOOR OPENS.]
[BELL DINGING OVER DOOR.]
Kory? Rachel? What the hell are you doing here? Shit, I'm not completely sure.
[DOOR OPENS.]
Rachel? - [DOOR OPENS.]
- [BELL DINGING OVER DOOR.]
Is this real, or am I going crazy? This is definitely real.
Why are you following me? Following What You called me and told me to come here.
- No, I didn't.
- [DONNA.]
Yes, you did.
My engine light went out.
[DAWN.]
Kory? I'm just here for the donuts.
- [DOOR OPENS.]
- [BELL DINGING OVER DOOR.]
Bruce? I'm so glad you all could make it.
[BRUCE.]
This is troubling news.
And no Conner or Gar? No.
I found bloody paw prints, broken glass and no one shut down the mainframe.
Gar wouldn't leave it like that.
So, when Rachel called me, I thought maybe she knew where they were.
I never talked to them.
I am aware of what's happened to all of you.
And I I'm sorry.
Lies can tear a family apart and you've been living in the after math of that.
And it's a lonely place to be.
But this was a This is a family of choice.
Breaking apart was a choice.
In the light of this news, I'm asking you to make another one.
To come together.
Walking away from bad feelings is easy.
It's much harder to take the blow, and come back for more, but that's what a family does.
If you can unite, you can face any threat.
But if darkness arrives while you're still cast apart, I truly believe that none of you will survive.
If you won't protect one another, who will? [BRUCE CLEARS THROAT.]
- [BELL DINGING OVER DOOR.]
- [DOOR CLOSES.]
[ENGINE REVS.]
Did he just leave? Yup.
[KORY.]
So, let me get this straight.
Bruce Wayne somehow miraculously arranged for us all to meet in this diner in the middle of nowhere to mansplain us into putting the Titans back together? Yup.
I think that's exactly what just happened.
[STATIC CRACKLING.]
[REPORTER ON TV.]
Today's top story.
Two men escape Kane Jail, apparently aided by imprisoned Detroit Police Detective Dick Grayson.
More details on this story and more on our next news update.
You gotta be fucking kidding me.
- [DOOR OPENS.]
- [BELL DINGING OVER DOOR.]
Donna, wait.
Troy, where are you going? Back to San Francisco.
No.
We need to save Dick.
Dick's on his own.
What is wrong with you? Me? Look, I know Dick Grayson, okay? He put himself up on that cross.
Nailed himself to it.
Now he's going to have to take himself down, too.
[DAWN.]
Donna's right.
Whatever Dick's doing, he's doing to himself.
I'm having dreams again.
I was at Dick's funeral.
Deathstroke killed him.
[SOFTLY.]
Look I know that I sound crazy.
I know that.
But Dick needs my help.
And I really need yours.
Please.
I'm sorry, Rachel but Gar needs us more.
[CAR DOOR OPENS.]
[DOOR SHUTS.]
I get why you're doing this.
[SIGHS.]
I do.
But I'm going to go with Donna.
As soon as you're done here, you come find us, okay? [ENGINE STARTS.]
Dawn So, I guess you're leaving, too.
Hell, no.
Let's go.
Okay, let's go.
[PANTING.]
Bruce? [YELLS.]
Bruce! [GASPING.]
Now you disappear.
- [FLAPPING.]
- [BIRD SQUAWKS.]
Hey.
- [FLAPPING.]
- Hey! Hey! [SIGHS.]
[BREATHING HEAVILY.]
Your old high school? Great.
What's next? You're going to ask me to prom? Not my school.
My home.
Dad was an asshole who got himself killed, Mom was an addict.
I did the whole delinquency tour.
Foster care, juvie, lived on the streets.
[CHUCKLES SOFTLY.]
Then I found this place.
Crammed a sleeping bag in the rafters over there.
Hid out up here at night, watched the theater kids living their best lives.
Explains why you're so dramatic.
And I used to think they were losers, but look who ended up in a mask and a cape.
You're not as shallow as you seem.
Compliments really aren't your strong suit, huh? I mean, I assumed you were some rich asshole.
Born on third, thinking he hit a triple.
But don't get me wrong, it's still totally lame that your big secret is that you're a theater nerd.
Thespians.
Okay, thespians, not theater nerds.
[CHUCKLES.]
So, are there any more plot twists or can we go? Hey.
What's your problem? My problem? Look, I bring you here, I tell you all this, and you treat me like shit.
I was just fucking with you, damn.
Every time I try to get close to you, Rose, you push me away.
You want to leave, then go.
Fine, go! Why are you being such an asshole? Because I see you searching for an excuse to run.
I'm not.
I've spent my whole life pushing people away, Rose.
Doing stupid shit.
Breaking things.
Hey.
I've never done this before either.
But every second I spend with you is like a new lease on life.
Jason, I told you, I'm bad news.
I I can't Hey it's okay.
There's a place for us.
Somewhere a place for us.
Hold my hand and we're halfway there.
Hold my hand and I'll take you there.
Somehow.
[BOTH.]
Someday.
Somewhere.
What? You thought you were the only nerd? It works, doesn't it? Where'd you go? You needed to rest.
Build up your strength for the escape.
No escapes for me.
Deathstroke has taken hostages and here you are.
We have a truce.
He's not touching anybody.
No one you can see.
At Adeline's, Slade was there, you were there, and yet no killing.
Why? He was unarmed.
And? And I was in Adeline's house.
Maybe you didn't want to.
Maybe there's something inside Slade that you need.
Yeah, his tiny tin heart got to me.
You both loved Jericho, and you both got him killed.
A common bond of self-loathing.
As long as you're both alive, you can always blame the other guy.
I admitted to my mistake.
[SCOFFS.]
It was very moving.
You think this is funny? It only took you five years.
Fuck you! [GRUNTS.]
[GRUNTS.]
[GROANS.]
[GROANS.]
Fighting the wrong fight, again and again.
[GRUNTING.]

Why not? Fucking thirsty.
