The Hades Awakening

1 You are my most promising subject.
[GUNSHOTS.]
A great soldier for our cause.
I've lost nine months.
I have no idea what happened to me during that time, and my mother thinks I'm dead.
Real answers only come after you've left your mind far behind.
And how do I do that? I'll guide you.
The woman who woke you up, what's her name? [SHOUTING.]
Haynes mentioned a daughter.
[GUN CLICKS.]
I think he's headed there.
Help me expose whoever's waking you guys up.
I can make sure you get to your daughter.
[SPEAKING KOREAN.]
[GUNSHOT.]
Are you sleeping, are you sleeping Brother John? Let's hope it works this time.
What do you know about me? You're broken, but we can fix this.
[GUNSHOT.]
Whose guy is this? Boss wants him in the crew, so he's in the crew.
We get in, we get the pills, we leave.
Why do they want me to kill you? I can pay you.
[GUNSHOT.]
Doug? You didn't see me, you don't know me.
Get out of here.
[MOTORBIKE RUMBLING.]
Jesus, Dougie, what's going on? - Get the fuck inside.
- What took you so long? I've been trying to call you all night.
Listen to me, there's People might come around asking you about me.
- You can't tell them anything.
- What are you talking about? I am caught up in some dark shit, man.
I don't want you getting involved.
Have you seen the news? That that guy I saw you kill last night might have been a cop, Doug.
- Fuck! - I can't go back to jail.
I know what I was doing there.
It was just supposed to be an easy gig, just a couple of runs.
What were you doing there? [FOOTSTEPS OUTSIDE.]

Put your ray gun to my head Has it kicked in yet? Is this gonna help me remember? Relax your mind.
Separate yourself from the experience.
[SIGHS.]
That's it.
Let it go.
Where are you? What do you see now? It's like I'm watching myself.
I'm back in Kraków.
[MAN SHOUTING.]
I'm about to make a decision.
What kind of decision? [GUNSHOTS.]
John.
The kind that changes everything.
[GUNSHOTS.]
- [GUNSHOTS.]
- [MEN SHOUTING.]
We got to keep running, John.
You need to keep running.
- Yeah? What about you? - I'll draw them away.
Clear a path for you to get out.
One of us needs to get back, tell the station what we learned.
Oh, come on, man.
You got to go, Frank.
Now.
Fuck.
We'll find you.
I'm not letting them take me alive.
John.
We know what they're doing to prisoners in there.
I'm not letting that doctor pry my head open.
I'm sorry.

[SHIVERING.]
I told them to use warm water, but they never listen.
Is that better? Hmm? I saw you give yourself up so your partner could escape.
[LIGHTER CLICKS.]
How much does the CIA know about this facility? How much does the CIA know about this facility? I understand.
You think we're monsters because we're KGB.
You've been programmed.
Your whole life, you've been fed ideas about good and evil, about right and wrong.
You've been torturing people in here.
One day, men and women will volunteer for this program.
- You're delusional.
- No.
I'm at war.
Well, whatever you're gonna do to me, just get it over with.
[OMINOUS MUSIC.]
Let it all go.
[SYRINGE CLICKS.]

[GROANS.]
[PAINED GROANS.]
Hey.
You're a cop, huh? I'm a cop, Douglas.
It's how things get done around here.
Your buddy gets spooked, drops the dime.
I get the call.
Simple.
You people come here and tell us that we have to work with this guy, which we do, by the way.
He kills Patty Vernon, and then you want us to deal with this psychopath? Are you serious? - I'll deal with him.
- You'll deal with him.
Is this the gun you used on Patty? Yeah.
Dirty cop killed her, not you.
Where's Lowell? I don't I don't know anyone named Lowell.
The man who made contact with you at your residence.
He came inside, we spoke for a few minutes, and then he left.
Well, we can't reach him.
That's not my problem.
Actually, this is a problem for us both, Doug.
I did my job.
Lowell's missing.
I had to take two flights to get out here and clean up his fucking mess.
What was this all about? Huh? This Patty Vernon.
Stay on mission.
Carry out orders.
Orders from who? You? What is it about Lowell that you're not telling me? I told you.
I don't know anything.
Why don't we go pick up your wife, continue this discussion with her? I always liked Sam.
Too bad she had to go off the reservation.
[GUNSHOT.]
[GROANS.]
Fuck! [BOTH SPEAKING MANDARIN.]
[CROWD CHEERING.]
[WHISTLE BLOWS.]
[CROWD CHEERING.]
He's gotten so much better, babe.
Can I talk to you about something? Sure, what about? You know Matt Edwards? He's involved in something pretty dangerous, and I'm backing his play.
Well, you've been his guardian angel for years now.
Yeah, but this is different.
He's making it personal, and he's taking chances that he shouldn't be taking.
- And he's putting you at risk? - Could be.
If it hasn't already.
Matt's been a good friend to you, but maybe it's time to start drawing some lines in the sand.
[CHUCKLES.]
Tom, you know the world I work in.
There are no straight lines.
[WHISTLE BLOWS.]
[CROWD CHEERING.]
Still no word on Edwards.
We can't get a location on him? He knows what he's doing, Dan.
He's smart enough to avoid leaving a trail.
Come on.
He's chasing Stephen Haynes, a likely Treadstone asset, and we're completely out of the loop? Look, Edwards, to me, the greatest gift that a warrior can give is their life.
Once I got discharged, I started to realize that that gift had been taken away from me.
So you signed up for Treadstone to get that gift back.
Didn't really work out that way.
No.
His name isn't Stephen Haynes.
It's Jacob Vickers.
Jesus, Ellen, where did you find this? The Cicada Protocol files were destroyed when Blackbriar was shut down.
Haynes remembered he had a daughter when he was under hypnosis.
Her name is Lilah Jane Conway.
So I did a biological search for her father, and I got him.
You okay? About the doctor I don't know what happened.
I Something snapped.
I reverted to training, and I don't know.
I went reflexive in the moment.
Now that we know that Haynes is Cicada, who the hell woke him up? I have a horrible, horrible feeling this is gonna lead to something much, much bigger.
Agreed.
But we need to stay focused on what's in front of us right now.
Matt Edwards is your guy, Haynes is our best lead, and you don't know where the fuck either of them are right now.
It's okay.
They're just memories.
[ELECTRICITY BUZZING.]
[MUFFLED SCREAMS.]
Tell me your name.
[ELECTRICITY BUZZING.]
[MUFFLED SCREAMING.]
What's your name? [SPEAKING GERMAN.]

[HIGH-PITCHED RINGING.]
[GASPS.]

[LABORED BREATHING.]
Your name.
[SPEAKING GERMAN.]
[DOOR OPENS, CLOSES.]
[RASPING BREATH.]
It's Dr.
Meisner's lab, not mine.
I'm sorry I failed you.
This is it.
Let's go.
- Your daughter's waiting.
- I'm not going to see her.
Then why did I bring you all the way out here? You would not have brought me if I'd told you the reason I'm here.
God damn it, Haynes Whoever sent me into that convenience store knows my background.
You figured out that I would come here after I got loose.
I have to assume that they would figure it out too.
Look at the silver sedan, 5:00.
You think they're staking out the house.
That's them, Edwards.
Fuck.
[GUNSHOTS.]
Haynes! What the fuck, Haynes? [GUNSHOTS.]
What are you doing? Wait, no! [GUNSHOTS.]
[GRUNTS.]
[CHOKING.]
[GUNSHOT.]
[CHOKING.]
Jesus, Haynes.
No phone, no ID.
It's her.
That's the woman who woke you up? That was our only lead! [SOFTLY.]
I know.
[DISTANT SIRENS BLARING.]
[CAMERA CLICKS.]
Let's go.
If we move fast, you can get 30 seconds with your daughter.
No, the memory she has of me is better than the truth.
[TIRES SQUEALING.]
Where the hell are you? I need you to buy me some time.
Tell me where you are.
I just sent a photo to your secure email.
I need you to run it through the facial rec database.
[KEYBOARD CLACKING.]
[SIREN BLARING.]
Jesus, Matt.
I'll explain later.
No, you will explain right now, 'cause you are way off the fucking grid.
Just run the photo, Ellen.
[KEYBOARD CLACKING.]
She worked for a company called Emory-Martin Incorporated.
What is that? It's a distributor for farm equipment.
That doesn't make sense.
Matt, the agency has used this company before as a front for cover identities.
- I'll call you back.
- No, no, don't you [DIAL TONE.]
Edwards needs an ID on this woman.
Who is she? She's one of us.
She's agency.
Do we know who killed her? Haynes and Edwards were on site.
We got a fucking body count, Ellen.
How many more people does this guy have to kill? So what are you proposing? You know what we need to do.
Press your space face close to mine, love Freak out [LABORED BREATHING.]

You look hungry.
Take it.
I make sure they start feeding you better.
Take it.
I'm not alone in here.
- I'm here with you.
- No, that's not what I mean.
I can hear them.
They're all around me.
- They're not real.
- They are real! It's a side effect of the training.
No, no, no, they're not.
I can hear them.
They're calling my name.
What are they calling you? [WHISPERING.]
John.
What did you say? [WHISPERING.]
John.
My name is John Randolph Bentley.
It's okay, John.

[STATIC, INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
I think there are a couple of items missing from the minibar.
Did you already raid it, or what? [LAUGHTER.]
Some lotion over here by my neck We're using another asset.
What's happening with the Patty Vernon situation? She controlled a $100-million market share in bootleg opioid pills.
Lang Pharmaceuticals want to take it over and make it legal.
This needs to be seamless.
There won't be any loose ends.
The cops, Doug, and Samantha.

Bentley? What the hell did they do to you? I don't know you.
I'm Don Matheson.
We both work for the CIA.
Jesus, you really don't remember.
The station sent me to find you.
You've been missing for months.
I found you in a bar here in Budapest.
You told me you've been on the run from the KGB, and you needed an exfiltration that night.
When we showed up at the rally point, it was a KGB ambush.
[OMINOUS MUSIC.]
Come on, man.
Tell me the truth Or I'll have to hurt you.
They're in your head.
You won't even remember this conversation.
No! [BLOW FALLS.]
No! Bentley, no! No, Bentley! No! Your training has been going so well since we arrived in Berlin.
You've exceeded all our standards.
Who am I? You are You are special.
I don't feel control over myself when you're around.
I know, John.
I feel the same.
What have you done to me? Hmm? Don't be scared.
- I'm not myself anymore.
- I know you feel this too.
- It's the training.
- It's not the training.
It's us.
I believe in you, my love.
Petra was right about you.
You are an extremely promising subject.
Time for your final test.
[DOOR OPENS.]

Please don't make me do this.

You're starting to see that this goes deep, right? You know there are gonna be people high up there who tell you they can manage it.
They'll say, "We got it from here".
Edwards, someone needs to burn that whole fucking house to the ground.
Matt.
We need to talk about Haynes.
Direct action is authorized.
Is this your call? It is the call, Matt, and that is all you need to know.
Are you able to carry out this directive or not? You and I talked about shutting this thing down for good.
I sent you in to get answers.
Your orders do not change.
Everything's changed.
Which side are you gonna land on when the smoke clears, Ellen? We good? Yeah.
We're good.
They told you to kill me, didn't they? Yeah.
[SIGHS.]
What are you gonna do? Well, how did he respond? Exactly as I predicted.
He's not compliant? I didn't bring him into this because he's compliant.
What did Haynes tell him? He wasn't clear about that.
[ENGINE REVS.]
You're headed to Richmond.
We'll get you the coordinates from the situation room.
[TIRES SQUEALING.]
