Travelers (2016) s02e09 Episode Script


1 Previously on Travelers.
Can you feel that? The latest ultrasound looks good.
You and the baby are fine.
[MAN]: You got three races out of five with those stupid odds.
[CARLY]: How did that happen? [PHILIP]: The timeline has changed a lot.
We are in serious financial trouble.
What happened to we're all on the same side? I don't want to be in the same room.
I should be leading this team.
Do we have a problem? No.
FBI! Show me your hands! Son of a bitch.
Sergeant Richard Hall, you have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used against you First time? Yeah.
You? Second.
Third for him.
Good evening, Historians.
Welcome to Regional Update 4.
I'm Traveler A-26 of the archivist program.
If this is your first time, please take a moment to look inside the bag you were provided on the way in.
The two green pills are to be taken immediately following the update.
It's important that we restore any chemical imbalances in the brain.
The yellow pills you will need going forward.
From time to time, you may perceive what we call "projections" visual manifestations of one or more alternate timelines an unavoidable side-effect of memory not acquired by conventional means.
The yellow pills will help to focus your sensory perception on one timeline at a time.
When you run out, call this number to arrange for more.
Get that? Yeah.
Next, Protocol 2H the update is not to be discussed with anyone.
Do not break this protocol.
This update will include historical information relevant to your team's role in the Grand Plan, including potential candidates, investments, etc.
But by its very nature, your update may also include historical information about your team members, loved ones.
About you.
This is a burden you will have to carry with you until the day you die a date which, for obvious reasons, will be omitted from your update.
Any questions? Let's begin.
[WOMAN]: Historians.
Open memory chain 1A.
[] [] [] [] Hey.
I made breakfast.
I don't wanna be late.
Hey, come on, Carly.
Take five minutes.
[KAT]: Grant! They chose me! Who? The Pattersons.
Uh You know, the restaurant owners.
Jill Jill.
This means what exactly? That I will be designing their new restaurant with a brand-new baby.
Well, you'll have my help with the baby.
I can't take a job that I don't have time to do Kat We'll figure it out.
- So I should say yes? - Do you want to say yes? Yes.
Then yes.
I'll let them know.
Nice work.
[CARLY]: What's the mission? I got a messenger with lotto numbers yesterday.
Director must've seen we're in a bit of a financial hole and decided to step up.
I obviously can't win any more lotteries without attracting undue attention, so you won 86k on the super draw last night And these numbers on the mega ball for tonight will get you 62.
$62 doesn't sound like very much.
Oh, good.
You both get 6 numbers out of 7.
Why don't we just win 7 out of 7 and we're covered? Because historically, someone else is supposed to win the big one and completely ruin their lives.
What about me? You are too young to gamble.
An excellent example of irony.
So will that get us out of the hole? Not even close.
This is seed money.
But I can quadruple it with horse races and use those earnings to create something far more substantial.
How does that even work if the historical record has changed? The messenger gave me very detailed instructions.
We're good.
Congratulations, you guys! - Sweet.
- Thanks.
So? What did you think? I liked it.
It's like therapy.
That's the idea.
We should do it more often.
I'm in.
Hey, do you know if there's a store around here anywhere? [DAVID]: So do I go for the $3.
00 water, the luxurious $5.
00 bottle of water, or the suspiciously-underpriced 99-cent water? You're buying a lottery ticket? Mm-hmm.
I buy one once in a while when the jackpot gets insanely big like this one.
I don't know why.
I mean, any size jackpot would change my life.
I always play my same lucky numbers.
Do you ever win? Nope.
Thank you.
What's up? Why'd you stop playing? Same reason you did.
You got a concussion, too? Whatever, Trevor.
Whoa, Kyle! Don't try to tell me that you don't remember what he did to us because of your concussions.
Nobody forgets shit like that.
Maybe I just don't like to think about it [CAR ENGINE ROARING] Hey.
Can I help you? No, I don't need any help.
Do you need any help? I'm good.
Yeah, no, we're good.
Who's your friend? Kyle.
Well, hello, Kyle.
Nice to meet you.
You know, Trevor and us, we we go way, way back.
I'm Hall.
This is my associate, Luca.
Hey, Trevor, I'm gonna go.
I'll catch up with you later.
Boss, it's me.
[MACLAREN]: What's up? Hall and Luca got out of prison early.
How do you know? Because I'm standing right in front of 'em.
They're parked outside the school.
I guess they don't know I don't like being watched.
[HALL]: Tough guy.
I love it! Do me a favor Give my regards to the boy scout.
[CAR ENGINE STARTS] They just drove off.
What was that about? What'd he say? Nothing.
Just thought you should know.
Thanks for the heads up.
Hey, Philip.
Got your winnings.
Hopefully, we get more messengers like that.
Where's the rest of it? I took some.
I need to invest that.
Well, turns out "baby needs a new pair of shoes" isn't just a saying.
And my van need a new transmission.
I can make it work.
How is all that going, by the way? You and Jeff and the baby? Is it workin' out? It's fine.
Why? I don't know, just asking.
Asking what exactly? Uh if things were okay at home? Are you developing a thing for me? No! I just haven't heard you talk about that in a while, and It's all good.
I mean, don't get me wrong, I think you're very attractive.
This is weird.
I agree.
I'm going to go.
Thanks for the cash.
Atta boy.
Come on, Kyle.
Come on, Kyle! One, two.
Atta boy.
Atta boy! Way to work out some of that aggression.
Come on, let's get some water.
Come on, let's keep going.
Have a drink.
Come on.
Let's talk a bit.
Leave it alone.
The old man can't touch us anymore.
Come on.
One, two, one, two.
One, two.
One, two.
One, two.
Why haven't you told anybody? Why haven't you? We're not talkin' about me.
- He said if I let him - One, two.
Come on, come on.
One, two.
He'd take care of me! Set me up.
With scholarships and shit One, two.
What did he promise you, hmm? The same.
Eight straight.
Come on.
What if it's still going on with other players? Man, you know it is.
Then we gotta do something.
Like what? You want to go to the police? Go to the school? Be his victims the rest of our lives? If that ends it.
He can't stand against both of us.
We did nothing wrong, Kyle.
Would you would you go in with me? Absolutely.
Come on.
Let's see a two.
Atta boy.
One, two.
[KAT]: Grant? Grant! [SOBBING] Grant! [DOCTOR]: Stay calm for us, Kathryn.
Everything's going to be fine, sweetheart.
This is exactly where you need to be.
[KAT]: Grant, please don't leave.
I'll stay right here.
I promise.
We're going to get her an ultrasound and assess her from there.
She'll be out shortly.
[GRACE]: Good morning, Trevor! How are your grades? Have you narrowed down a list of colleges yet? What can I do to better help you succeed? I read my employee manual and I am ready to guide the shit outta these pubescent brats.
I need your help with something.
Marcy! Hey! I'm sorry.
Do I know you? It's me.
I was just warned about you watching members of my team.
I only want to talk.
Do you? [DOCTOR]: Hi, Kathryn.
I have the results from the ultrasound and the baby is fine.
[KAT]: Oh, thank God.
You have formed a small placental abruption, so we want you to stay in for a bit, just so we can monitor you and the baby, make sure it doesn't get any worse.
But what if it does? It won't.
[DOCTOR]: If the baby forces our hand, we can talk about our options, but for now, we just need to assess where we're at, okay? Buzz the nurses if you need anything.
[MACLAREN]: Thanks.
[LUCA]: You don't remember anything from that time? [MARCY]: Nothing.
I was briefed by members of my team about the time I lost, but it's not the same as actually living it.
[LUCA]: Well, at least now I know why you never came to visit me in prison.
You said you would have died Losing my sister before I ever really got to know her would be worse than Luca, Luca we were separated so young.
We can't know for sure that we're really family.
[MACLAREN]: Guys, it's Mac.
I'm going to be unavailable for a while.
There's a problem [MARCY]: What's wrong? Kathryn's in the hospital.
She's had some medical complications and I need to be here with her.
Marcy? Yeah.
I'm on my way.
- Is everything all right? - Sorry, I have to go.
Holy Uh [LINE RINGING] Hey, this is Marcy.
Leave a message.
Marcy, I won the lottery! 6 numbers out of 7! That's 31 $31,000! Isn't that freaking amazing? It would have been $62,000, but someone else won the lottery.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God, that's you!! Because I took your numbers! You won the lottery, too! Congratulations! Wait I mean, that means I took half your money.
I mean, that's like That's like cheating.
Um Yeah, you know what, I should just give it to you.
So That's what I'm gonna do.
But, I mean, what are the chances that your numbers would be picked any more than my mine, right? Oh, my God, did you hear the greed in my voice? Because I sure did.
I mean, I may as well have just come out and said "That money's mine!" This is how money ruins people.
I think I'm going to be sick.
[LINE RINGING] Still no answer.
We said we'd meet after second period.
You know, for my first actual case as a guidance counselor, you could have eased me into it.
Holden! I have been looking all over for you.
Connor needs a QB that can hit him in the hands if we want to win state.
So we'd love to have you out.
And Connor, how are things? Could use my old quarterback back on the team.
Talk some sense into him.
Oh, I don't understand sportsball, so Can't keep a spot open for you forever, Trev.
Why didn't you just deal with him right then and there? Not in front of the kid.
It's gonna be hard enough on him as it is.
[] 78 79 1,000.
[LAUGHS] I'm really diggin' us workin' out together.
Yeah? That's good.
And this playlist Damn.
You like it? Oh, yeah.
You gotta You gotta get that that core engaged, right? You know what I mean? Get that heart rate up.
[LAUGHS] You know what I mean? Come on, Carly.
You know that body likes to dance.
I don't even know what you're doing.
Come on, Carly, it'll come to you.
Let it go.
- That's right.
- Okay.
[] There she is.
What did you find? I took a look at her file.
There's nothing out of the ordinary.
She's stable.
I mean, her blood pressure's a little high Those drugs you gave me shouldn't they have protected her from this? They were designed to help, not to make her invulnerable.
How do we get you in there? I don't think you understand there's nothing even I could do.
She's right where she needs to be, and if they need to take the baby out early, a Caesarean section is a standard procedure for these doctors.
Medicine isn't magic in any time.
Would you like me to inform the team of what's going on? No.
No, I'll do it when the time is right.
And, uh, yeah, it just feels good to know I'm not doing that to my family anymore.
[GROUP]: Thank you, Mike.
Philip did you want to share? Uh, yeah, I do.
My name's Philip and I'm an addict.
[GROUP]: Hi, Philip.
I have a secret.
I know the future.
I know what's going to happen.
Global events.
Winners of horse races.
It was all recently delivered to me like a movie.
And mostly, it's the same future that I remember, but there are differences.
You all think I'm crazy right now but it's true.
For example, I know that somebody in this room has very recently been diagnosed with cancer and has decided to ignore it.
As if ignoring the problem is going to make it go away.
Because there is only a 50/50 chance that the treatment will work.
And they're afraid of going through the pain of chemotherapy for nothing.
And the truth is, I don't know whether this person is going to live or die if they decide to get treatment.
I only know for certain that without it Philip? Philip? I'm sorry, what what was I saying? Not much.
You stopped talking after you said "I have a secret.
" Oh.
I'm sorry.
Um maybe someone else should go.
It's all right.
We've all been there.
Don't worry about it, bro.
We're gonna do this.
Have you been drinking? Pull over.
Trevor, I'm fine.
Where are you? Where are you? Where are you? [MONITOR BEEPING STEADILY] [] Oh, hey, nurse.
How's she doing? Excuse me.
I asked you a question.
It was for your own good.
What did you do? [P.
]: Code blue.
Code blue.
[ALARM BEEPING] Go be with her.
Higgins, what's happening? I can't talk right now, Mr.
Please stay out of the way.
Philip, I need eyes on Hall right now.
He's leaving the hospital.
I'm on it.
Don't lose him.
[HIGH-PITCHED RINGING IN EARS] [TREVOR]: Kyle! Kyle! Back up! Kyle, get outta the car.
There's something wrong with this host.
You're just drunk.
Traveler 5532, welcome to the 21st.
This is too much.
Andrew, I have watched you do everything in your power to change your circumstances.
I mean, you got clean, you got that part-time job at the grocery store.
This is just a little financial help to put a roof over your head.
But I'll never be able to repay you.
This No, I don't want you to.
Just, just Just keep doing what you're doing and I'll count myself lucky to know you.
I don't know what to say.
You don't have to say anything.
Thank you, David.
[DAVID]: Okay.
[] Wendy? I'd like to make your day.
Come on.
You must know something by now.
My latest information is that your wife is still in surgery.
Would you come with me, please? [TREVOR]: Philip! I need your help.
Look, I know that the historical record has changed since we got here, but not everything, right? A lot stays the same.
Yeah, why? Carson Perry.
He's a football coach at my high school.
Ring any bells? Come on, dig deep.
Carson Perry gets arrested on 16 counts of sexual-assault charges as well as possession and distribution of under-age pornography.
When? Not soon.
We can't wait.
Trev, I've been through this, you assign yourself vigilante What if it's my protocol 5? I recently learned that my host was abused before I got here by him.
I had no idea.
Neither did I.
I promised my friend, Kyle, that I would help take him down, and just now Kyle was a host candidate.
- You knew? - 3:09 this afternoon.
Driving drunk.
I'm sorry.
I understand why you couldn't tell me, but as far as I'm concerned, that coach killed him.
I need to fix this [POUNDING ON DOOR] [DOCTOR]: Mr.
MacLaren, in this case, it was Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, or APS.
She developed an arterial thrombus, which then caused a coronary embolism, which is a clot in the heart.
Kathryn went into cardiac arrest.
MacLaren, in our efforts to save Kathryn's life We lost the baby.
And all I can say is that it's extremely fortunate that that clot passed on its own, or this would be an even more difficult conversation for both of us to have.
When can I see her? She's in recovery, she's sedated, but you can see her in a few hours.
MacLaren, we have counselors available if you need them.
Philip, tell me where Hall is.
Boss, he's here.
What? Hey, Boss.
- Get off of me! - We can't do that.
- [MACLAREN]: You're a dead man! - I know, I know, I know You killed my child! That's not what happened.
You'd better hope the Director overwrites you before I get The Director was the one who sent me! I was on a mission.
Let him go.
Let him go.
There you go.
What're you talking about? The child was never going to survive.
It was never supposed to.
You don't know that.
My mission was to save your wife.
There had to be a way to save them both.
[MARCY]: I don't think there was.
[HALL]: Listen to your medic, MacLaren.
What did you do? [HALL]: Kathryn MacLaren was going to die of an undiagnosed coronary embolism that stopped her heart during the delivery of her stillborn child.
The Director ordered me to give her a traveler-synthesized drug to eliminate the clot so that she would survive, because she wasn't supposed to die.
Because you broke Protocol 4.
She wanted a child more than anything You're gonna stand there and blame her for this? Is that what you're doing? No.
Look, I get it.
I get it.
It's tough to stay focused in the 21st.
I mean, that's what I've been trying to tell you guys ever since I met you.
Trying to teach you guys to not get caught up in all the bullshit.
But you had to stab me in the back, huh? The Director obviously agreed with me or you wouldn't have gone to prison.
Yeah I can't argue with that.
I guess we all need a lesson now and then of what our mission is.
And this was yours.
But, hey.
MacLaren, your wife is still alive.
Go be with her.
[] Welcome home.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I know it's later than I said.
Can I hold him? I was trying to get him to go to sleep.
I know.
I don't care.
You wanna cuddle with your mama, big man? So How was today for Carly Shannon? It's over now, let's leave it at that.
You? I had a pay duty.
I basically just chaperoned some drunk college kids for time and a half.
Sounds awful.
Wasn't so bad.
You okay? Tell me about the day he was born.
Ah Are you sure you wanna go there right now? 'Cause that's not your favorite story.
I want to hear it from your perspective.
Grant? I'm here.
They told me she was a girl.
Change your mind? You're going to come clean.
Sorry? You're going to come forward to the police and you're going to detail all that you've done.
Trevor, what are you talking about? Do it on your on volition and face the consequences, or it'll be done for you.
Yeah? Mm-hmm.
I'm not gonna do that.
Those are your only two options.
I don't think you realize what you're doing here.
You're really willing to throw everything away to destroy both of our lives? There are other lives to consider.
Oh, come on.
Maybe you don't want to play football anymore, but you do not want the shit storm that'll come from this.
You prey on young boys who look up to you.
You make promises in exchange for access to their bodies.
Come on, Trev.
I will come forward.
I'll talk about the hotel rooms on the road.
The showers.
All of it.
Who's gonna believe you? You're a bad kid and everybody knows it.
People change.
Not the Trevor Holden I know I don't know where this act came from, but I don't buy it for a second.
I know you.
You're going to keep your mouth shut.
I'm not threatened by you.
You should be.
Don't push me, kid.
Release the materials.
[PHILIP]: On it.
"Release the materials?" What the hell is that supposed to mean? Thank you, Philip.
That's what Trevor and Kyle would've wanted.
All we did was accelerate what was going to happen anyway.
Freak had whole hard drives of incriminating shit.
He made his choice.
Oh, my God.
Amazing luck.
Isn't it! You're not upset that I cheated? No, of course not.
I'm happy for you.
You must be thrilled.
Yeah! Yeah.
It's all gone.
What? Did you ever hear of the story of St.
Francis? No.
No, me neither.
Somebody called me that today.
I don't understand.
I didn't feel right taking what would have been yours if I hadn't peeked at your numbers, and I know that you wouldn't let me give it back, so I gave it all away.
I helped out a lot of good people.
Honestly, Marcy, it was it was the best day of my life.
Remember my my client, Jason, with the bad teeth and the hair? Yeah.
I do.
Great teeth now.
I mean, they will be.
Even getting them cleaned has made a huge difference.
And on Wednesday, he's got some much needed dental work.
Good for Jason.
Yeah! No, he hates dentists.
Who else? I'm not sure if you remember Marjorie.
I bought her a new walker.
They're pricey for what they are.
Steve got one of those scooters to get to his new job.
He can't walk very far without breaking into a sweat.
Jordan got my bike for his pizza delivery job.
Your bike? Yeah.
Yeah, I thought I'd buy myself a new one.
I should have saved some.
All of it? I know it sounded like a lot of money, but, I mean, everything is just so expensive, and I had a whole list of people.
- David - It doesn't matter.
I'll get my steps in.
So what're you gonna do with yours? Um I have some debts to pay off.
Debts! Wow, that is responsible.
I should have some left over.
Even more responsible! So what're you gonna do with it? Well, first I'm going to buy you a new bike.
I'm so happy you said that.
What's happening right now? Where the hell is this kid? Give him a minute.
He's probably hungover.
I'm sorry, he's what? Sorry, I'm late.
I was having a hard time deciding what clothing to bring with me.
Yeah, not a problem, kid.
Just don't make it a habit.
So, what's the mission? The Prime Minister has called highly threatening.
This will severely impact foreign relations if the troops continue to invade the region against U.
In local news, a fire ravaged a downtown apartment complex last night, and authorities are saying that the cause is more than likely [NEWSCAST CONTINUES FAINTLY] [TRAVELERS A-26]: The yellow pills will help to focus your sensory perception on one timeline at a time.
An unavoidable side-effect of memory not acquired by conventional means [NEWSCAST CONTINUES FAINTLY] []
