Van Helsing (2016) s03e13 Episode Script

Birth Ritual

Previously on Van Helsing - I will raise the dark one.
- Yes.
And then I will carve out his heart.
Here goes everything.
Don't follow me.
As if I'd leave you on your own.
He is found with her.
She returns to the crypt.
[SCREAMING] Julius! Frankie! You wanna walk to Renfield House? I've gotta be there for Vanessa whether she wants me to or not.
Only one can make it to the end.
I make my own fate.
Mohamad my Mohamad.
I found you.
You're a part of me, heart and soul.
[GUSHING SOUNDS] [GASPING] [HYPERVENTILATING] Bad dream? So there's no way you could have prevented Caitlyn's death? No.
The vampire bit her before I could do anything.
By the time I got my gun it was too late.
Why didn't you report it straight away? It wasn't exactly a priority.
The whole city was in chaos.
I don't know.
Maybe I was scared.
I got the hell out of there.
I mean, I could have been killed, too.
You know what I can't work out? How this vampire got in here in the first place.
It's uh it's odd, don't you think? We lost a whole sector of the city to vampires.
If that can fail, who knows what else? Hmm.
No, I gotta give it to you.
It's so effortless for you.
Not even a hint of remorse in your eyes.
We didn't catch anything on that CCTV in the hallway but we buried one in the wall.
Caitlyn didn't trust you.
She would have told you that herself but you found this very unique way of keeping her quiet.
Ok, look, look.
She was blackmailing me, ok? - You don't understand- - Sit the down.
All that matters now is what we do with you.
Ok.
- Just send me to Love Land.
- Love Land.
[LAUGHS] You'd like that, wouldn't you? Unfortunately you're still too valuable for me here.
How? Well, we have this little vampire problem, and since you are the supposed expert you're gonna solve it.
Assuming you ever wanna see your girlfriend again.
Vanessa Vanessa Vanessa Van Helsing, destiny Turn around.
Face me.
I sense something so sweet, yet sour.
Love those eyes.
[FIGHTING GRUNTS] I have a destiny.
So do I.
You have become stronger than before.
What have you become? The end of you.
Perhaps.
But what have you done to become this? Nighty night.
The darkness summoned you.
But from two only one may be.
Only one? One what? Liege to the dark one.
An Elder.
Him, or Me.
Oh yes.
You're not the fourth Elder.
So close.
Close enough to see, and yet still so blind.
There is no fourth Elder, yet.
But the prophecy.
- My mother - What's wrong? What truth they never told was about the fourth.
The fourth must be made.
[THUNDER ROLLING] And now here you are.
I don't believe you.
In your heart you know the truth, but you wish not to see what you must see.
See we shall, know we will.
This compound of yours is going to work, right? It's 20 times stronger in concentration.
You asked for a Hail Mary, this is the best that I've got.
[BEEPING] Excuse me, I need to check this.
No, no, no.
You're coming with us.
No, you don't understand.
- This is the work I've been working - Now.
[THUNDER ROLLING] [CACKLING] I've been here before.
But it was different.
All will become clear.
You will see and know everything.
I don't need clarity.
The truth is clear now more than ever.
[KNIFE DROPS] Tell me.
Then tell me what must be done.
The totems.
You have yours? All I have is this.
Symbol of your pain.
Your suffering.
Made in darkness from darkness.
Yes, this will do.
And you.
One from your kindred.
But more.
The ring of the B'ah.
The bracelet of of Abaddon.
Defeated them and stole theirs, didn't you? Now all I need is Sam's, and his path to darkness ends.
And what of yours? Crafted one, did you? This wasn't my path.
Was always.
And you have it now even if you do not see it for what it is.
Give that back.
Precious.
Special.
A symbol of your pain, as are they all.
Offerings so beholden you may become to the dark one.
I'll never become an Elder.
This path you have always walked towards your true purpose.
Which begins and ends with killing all of you.
Blind still, and yet drawn to this you are.
Always were.
All you need to do is embrace your true nature.
I'll never be like you.
Or him.
Still you choose blindness! All your life I have watched you walk a path you didn't know you were on.
Open your eyes! I'll never join you.
If not you then him.
One will.
Yes.
Let it be me.
Let it be me! Then you know what must be done.
[THUNDER ROLLING] So the security gate wasn't breached.
There's been no sign of vampires for the last 48 hours so I think what makes most sense is we hold fast.
Wait for help to arrive.
From where? We called in reinforcements.
That's all you need to know.
Reinfor - no, you don't get it.
We need to go in there now.
- That's too risky.
- Listen to me.
On the other side of that fence they're figuring out a way to get in here and kill the rest of you.
They don't have that level of sophistication.
- They're ferals.
- No.
Not ferals.
Not anymore.
They're daywalkers.
Smart, tactical, harder to kill, and to top it off they're immune to the sun now.
Oh shit.
They walked right through the UV lights in quarantine like they weren't even there.
That's right.
No, we have to take the fight to them.
- That's all that matters.
- He's right.
We wait and they can figure out a way around our defences and then game over.
Are you sure we're up to this? What if we don't have enough fire power? We do now.
Ammo tipped with concentrate and aluminium silicate.
The hell is that? A poison I engineered.
It's made from the same base chemical Black Tech was using in your repellant.
Weaponized against vampires.
So in theory a concentrated dose of the chemical that repels them could also poison them.
Maybe even kill them.
In theory.
Has any of this been tested? At all? You wanna wait while we conduct trials? Yeah, go ahead.
We'll all be dead by the time the results come in.
I'll take a squad of men through the gate.
Two other teams can enter here and here.
Any vampires in the area, we open fire, kill as many as we can.
Rescue any human survivors.
We'll need volunteers.
Three teams lead by me.
I'll do it.
What? Julius, you don't have to do this.
Yes I do.
For Frankie.
You sure about this? We missed something the first time.
I didn't miss anything.
I also killed Captain Forehead and uh the Susan Elder.
Yeah? Where are the bodies? Uh, someone must have taken them.
Or some thing.
Well, why is she still here? I don't think that psychic vampire was trapped.
I think it was sent to be a guardian.
By who? - And to guard what? Lily? - I don't know.
Something brought her back here all those years ago and it's brought Vanessa back here, too.
You think Vanessa's here already? I don't think so, I know.
The maze in the book.
Whatever Jacob told her on the island.
See, now I don't know what you're talking about.
There's a feeling in this place.
A darkness.
I think it called out to her.
- How would you know that? - Because I feel it.
But every part of me wants to run and get the hell outta here.
- Well, trust your gut.
- No, I can't.
I can't.
I really I feel like I'm meant to be here too.
You can go.
You don't have to stay.
Really? And let the wonder twins have all the fun? That's not gonna happen.
You know the deal.
It's you and me to the end, babe.
That cross.
It's upside down.
Oh shit.
That can't be good.
More steps on this path you cannot take without this.
There is no other way.
Sam, don't.
You could have stopped this! But you choose to reject the gift I offer, and so it must be.
Vanessa.
Sam.
You leave them alone.
And offerings you have brought me.
You shouldn't have followed me.
You left me.
You need me.
Scarlett.
You need me to help you fight the dark.
It's what our mother warned us about.
Ah, sister of yours, she is.
And this one? A handsome sacrifice.
What the hell is this? A new beginning.
Or the end.
Both.
Mohamad Mohamad Do as you must.
Complete the prophecy.
Purge the light from your heart.
Mohamad! No- Mohamad.
Mohamad.
My Mohamad, you must stay.
Stay with me.
Wha-what is this? - Where are we? - Together.
Like it was always meant to be.
No.
You turned me.
You wanted me to be a monster like you.
I know.
- But I'm not.
- I know.
You left me in a hole to die.
But I didn't die, did I, Sam? I wouldn't.
I know.
But she-she saved me.
She brought me back.
She gave me another chance.
I know.
So you see, Sam.
I don't belong to you.
I belong to no one.
Mohamad.
Strong, good Mohamad.
You taught me to see who I truly was.
To understand my true purpose.
And to feel love.
I do.
I did.
I hated you for that.
For making me human.
I feel your heart beating.
My heart's beating, too.
But not with pity or shame or or regret.
Love is something I wasn't meant to know.
Love and light are not my destiny.
[CHOKING] They are a lie.
I hate you too, you lying son of a bitch.
I hope you die slowly, painfully, and alone.
And I wish I was the one to do it.
I know.
But this is who I am.
Who I've always been.
In the shadow of darkness.
[GASPING] You're not alone, Mohamad.
You're not alone.
You're not alone.
You're not alone.
You are not alone, Mohamad? Mohamad? [SCREAMING] I feel nothing now.
Julius, listen to me.
We need to get out of here.
Now.
Find Jolene, find Flesh, and go.
- Not before I do this.
- You don't know what I did.
They're gonna make me pay.
So I just need to go back to the lab, get the results from my gene sequencer - and get out of here, ok? - Doc, this isn't about you.
- This is a suicide mission! - Shhh! What're you gonna do? Murder yourself? For Frankie? I don't know if she's even dead or one of them now.
Either way, it wasn't your fault.
- Isn't it? - No.
I made Scab.
I'm the one that turned him, and he couldn't have bit her if it wasn't-no.
I gotta make this right.
You stubborn son of a bitch.
Ok.
Ok.
But you come back alive, ok? Alive.
What're you gonna do? Finish what I started.
[BUZZ] Stay sharp and in formation.
Sweep the roads before we clear the buildings.
First sign of trouble, look to me.
Understood? And so the light in you is no more.
You're heart is dark.
Empty.
Pure.
It is nearly done.
Unless Vanessa embraces who she truly is.
[GASPS] I'll kill you, Sam.
I'll rip out your heart! Yes.
Yes, good.
Let in the darkness.
Join us.
Vanessa, don't! You won't win.
I won't let you become Elder, even if I have to myself.
Yes.
Yes! No, Vanessa! Listen to me! You have to fight it.
Fight the rage, ok? Like they taught you in China.
You have to fight it.
You can't become an Elder.
You won't defeat me because a light in your heart still lives.
Are you prepared to do what I did? To snuff out the light in your heart? Vanessa, you have to do it.
It's the only way to stop him.
To stop all of them.
What? You knew back at the lighthouse that you were the only one who could face this.
It was your destiny, but what we both didn't understand I was made to make that possible.
I'm the only way that you can stop him.
That's my destiny.
Scarlett, what the hell are you talking about? I met someone who told me that I had a purpose that I didn't understand.
I understand it now.
I wasn't meant to come here to stop you from going dark.
I was meant to give you the strength to resist it.
You don't have to do this alone.
What're you talking about? This is insane.
- I won't.
- You will.
- No.
- We are born Van Helsing.
This is what our mother did.
Jacob told us that only one of us is gonna survive, so either we are gonna be the ones to walk the path and destroy them all with light or we must be destroyed to make all that possible.
No, no, no, both of you just listen to me.
Listen to me.
listen to me! You don't have to do this.
Don't do this.
I wanna stay with you, Axel.
- Then stay.
- I can't.
I was never gonna walk out of here.
What're you talking about? Either she goes dark and kills us or I make the sacrifice and give her the strength to do the right thing.
Scarlett, listen to me It's the only way.
You have to let me go, Axel.
I can't.
You have to let me go.
I'm sorry.
I love you.
I love you.
There's gotta be another way.
Come on.
No.
Scarlett, don't.
We have to do this.
No Scarlett, not her.
Look at me.
Look at me! Kill me.
Kill me! Not the light in her heart, are you? But why you? Killing me will fuel the light in her.
And the light will win.
You would do that for her? For everyone.
Oh my god.
So what're you saying? She can't be trusted.
But she still has value to the company.
The work Caitlyn had her doing was important.
And what is that, exactly? Perfecting the repellant, for one.
Look, our work here is too valuable to Black Tech to let her just walk away from it no matter what she did.
Walking away from a murder is not something I can justify to the people in this city.
That's why you're not gonna tell them.
That's not gonna wash.
Caitlyn was one of mine.
As far as anyone else is concerned I shipped her out during the chaos.
And what if someone starts to dig a little deeper into that? We still operate under the rule of law, right? Denver is a free city because Black Tech made it one.
It's under your watch that it's falling apart.
Don't worry, the company still has confidence in your ability to set it all right.
Don't make us question that.
And what about her? The doctor? She knows the truth.
Find her and bring her to me.
Do you think you can manage that? Yeah.
You are our only hope.
It has to be you.
Scarlett, stop.
I won't do it.
Scarlett, don't do this.
Don't do it.
I didn't believe in you, ok? I thought you were a figment of my imagination, just some false memory.
But then we found each other.
We figured out the truth and we remembered who we are.
Why we're here.
It's for a reason.
All of it.
What're you doing, Scarlett? Don't do it.
- Scarlett.
- You - you will end the darkness.
- [CRYING] Please don't.
- Don't do it.
- You.
You.
Scarlett, no.
Don't do it.
Ahhhhhh!!!!! [SOBBING] No! Scarlett, no! [SCREAMS] Noooo!!!!!!!! [VANESSA SCREAMING] Noooooooo!!!! [SOBBING] I gave you everything.
I gave you everything I had just to save you.
Then you do this? [SOBBING] You could have stopped her.
You're the strong one! You can't fight the darkness.
You are the darkness! Let me go you miserable hag bitch! [CACKLING] What have you done? You had to purge the light in your heart, that is true, but that step you took it already.
The darkness already defeated the light in your heart, you know.
What're you talking about? Your little girl.
Dylan.
I- I tried to save her.
But did you? You bit her.
Turned her human again and then she died.
Because of you, she did.
You meant to No, I did not sacrifice her.
But you did! You could have stopped her but you didn't.
That's how deep the darkness goes.
The sister Scarlett, she died for nothing.
For nothing! If I ever see you again I'll kill you.
You hear me, Vanessa? I'll kill all of you.
My sister's sacrifice won't be for nothing.
I will defeat the dark one because I am the light.
Such a gift you were offered.
Such a disappointment you have been.
Pity.
[GROANS] Elder now you have become.
My destiny.
Julius! Stay in formation! Whoever she is, you can't help her now.
But you can still help us.
Over there.
Survivors.
We secure them, escort them out.
Let's move.
Hold on.
Wait a second.
This doesn't look obvious to you? What, that they're being held hostage? That they're bait.
We can't leave them.
Listen to me.
This is what we're gonna do.
Scab! I know you're in here.
It's me you want.
What're you waiting for? [INAUDIBLE WHISPERING] Let 'em go.
It's me you want.
It's me you've always wanted.
Why not both? I keep them, I kill you.
Julius! Callie.
Julius! Anointed by the dark one so you are worthy.
Destroy that which desires to destroy us.
- Kill her! - [GROWLING] You are the light.
[GROWLING] There's one thing in my heart now.
Death.
[THUNDER ROLLS] For me this is the beginning.
But for you, and humankind, you must accept this is the end.
Never! - Lily? - Yes.
How do you know me? And what is that hellish beast? The nightmare I have to kill.
You can't.
Not alone.
I have to.
Or die trying.
There's another way.
Trust me.
There is no other way.
The Van Helsings end now.
What other way? Together.
[SNARLS]
