Young Justice s01e13 Episode Script

Alpha Males

Indian tiger print, boys.
I told you I won't need any superstitious guy to lead us to big game.
Devil beasts, ah.
What is that? Who cares? I just made my quota.
security protocols with watchtower mainframe.
Thanks But no, thanks.
What we want are answers about Red Tornado and his siblings.
Exactly! Leave the bowl.
It was during the Tai Pei mission with Red Arrow.
Sportsmaster revealed the possibility of a mole within the team.
In light of last night's attack, tornado would appear to be the traitor.
But whether he betrayed us willingly or was pre-programmed is still - You knew?! - Unh! That android and his maniac family nearly killed M'gann! Connor, what are you doing? Kaldur knew we had a traitor among us and said nothing! - You knew? - But didn't tell us? I sought to protect the team from Protect us from what, knowledge that might have saved our lives? You almost died! Enough.
With Red Tornado missing, the team will now be overseen by rotating supervisors.
Captain marvel has volunteered to take the first shift.
I'm really looking forward to hanging with you guys.
After I dismantle Red Tornado, you and I are gonna Red Tornado is a member of the Justice League.
That makes him a League responsibility.
You will leave him to us.
I have another assignment for this team.
"Gotham Mayor attacked by guerilla gorilla"? Was this the only thing he could find to distract us? Batman, please! Tell me you're not sending us on this joke of a wild ape chase.
I never joke about the mission.
I've checked the sources.
I've studied the patterns.
Mayor hill's encounter is only the latest in a series of incidents.
Aqualad, you and your team will depart for India and check this out.
"Your team.
" Huh-uh.
You're coming with? Sure! We'll have a blast.
He blames us for Red fiasco.
Doesn't trust us.
It's a big club.
All clear.
Switch to stealth, and we'll review mission parameters.
Parameters? We don't need no stinkin' parameters.
It's recon.
We know what to do.
Kid, Robin The 3 of us started this team because the Justice League was keeping secrets from us.
Or did you forget that like you forgot to tell us about the mole? Come on.
I'll keep you safe.
You're my boyfriend, Connor, not my keeper.
Stop behaving like a character from a seventies sitcom.
I just want to protect you.
Like Aqualad protected us? I'm not sure your protection or your patronizing is good for our health.
Why didn't you stop them? You're supposed to be in charge.
I am Um, did I miss the part where you actually said what the plan was? Guess this is where Mayor Hills monkey business went down.
So at least we've confirmed his story, right? Aqualad? My apologies, captain.
I am plagued by doubts.
Perhaps I was wrong to withhold.
I thought vulture only ate dead meat.
Yeah, these are some very proactive scavengers.
Proactive and super-sized.
You thinking what I'm thinking? Cobra Venom? Yeah.
Aah! Ok, nearly drowning two nights in a row is way less fun than it sounds.
Hyah! Aah! Aah! Remove the collar! On it.
Pretty sweet the way you figured out the problem was the collars.
But the collars indicate an intelligence behind this attack.
The rest of the team may also be at risk.
Team, report status.
Comm is jammed.
And Miss Martian failed to establish a telepathic link before we split up.
Actually, you let everyone split up before communications were set.
They would not listen! I guess.
But back at the Cave, Batman stopped everyone from arguing with one word.
Because Batman isBatman.
Hey, you don't have to tell me.
When I first joined the League, all he did was boss me around.
And it's hard not to take it personally.
But I never disobeyed an order, and that's probably what kept me alive.
Batman takes command.
He has to For the good of the League.
Thank you for helping me understand.
Hey, wisdom of Solomon.
Aqualad, can you hear me? Yes, Miss Martian.
Artemis and I were attacked by animals wearing inhibitor collars like those used on convicts at Belrad prison.
Cool, the tiger! I'll be right back! Captain, wait! Hey, speed of Mercury.
Hey there, mister.
Bet you'd like good ol' cap to take that nasty collar off ya, huh? Miss Martian, I need a telepathic link-up with the entire team, now.
Link established.
Should you really still be giving us orders? And should you really be following them? Listen, please.
Oh, good, Aqualad's voice in my head.
I've so missed that.
Hey, Kaldur, K.
and I were attacked by giant vultures.
'Course, since we're moles, you probably think we attacked ourselves.
If he did, he wouldn't tell you.
Superboy, are you online or just pouting? Busy.
Call back later.
What gets me is how nonchalant he is about not telling us.
He should be chalant.
Way chalant.
Extremely chalant.
How can we be a team if he doesn't trust us with his secrets? Or if Connor doesn't trust us to take care of ourselves? Did he really think you or I could have been the mole? We've known each other for yes! Trust is a two-way street, and you know they'd hate it if we kept secrets from them.
Not that we'd do that.
Hyah! Captain Marvel has been captured, and we must act as a team to save him.
Under your leadership? I don't think-- This is not up for debate.
You all chose me to lead.
When the mission is over, if you wish to select a new leader, I will happily step down.
But until that team, I am in command here.
The brain enhancement of this tigre already pays dividends, no? For he has brought us a prize most glorious Le Capitaine Marvel.
Why can't I move? It is obvious, no? Your collar is set to prohibit le movement from the neck down.
I have allowed you to retain the power of speech, as your reactions will be instructive during la proc├ędure.
La proc├ędure? What procedure? I have often pondered the effect of your powers on the cerebral cortex.
I long to see le wisdom de Solomon up close.
Monsieur Mallah, prepare for surgery.
I'll fly over.
The field is stamped like a dome over the whole compound.
Pylons are insulated, but one good shock could cause a momentary gap.
I see a target.
Then be ready to hit it.
Be ready, all of you.
Now! Go, Mallah.
Deal with these intruders.
I can handle mon Capitan's brain extraction myself.
Remove their collars! Sounds easy when he says it.
Aah! Get your paws off her, you darn dirty ape.
Unh! You're not taking my brain! S'il vous plait, Capitaine, do not struggle.
Brain extraction is not so painless, but the benefits are enormous.
Just look what it has done for me.
That thing won't work on me.
Perhaps, but it works on solid steel, so I'll try my luck.
I'm told you have the courage of Achilles, no? Perhaps you should have asked for his invulnerability instead.
Traitor! You will suffer for that! Stop it! Stop! It's the brain! Uh, I can see it's a brain.
Not a brain, the brain.
In the flesh, so to speak.
Mallah Aah! Miss Martian, Superboy, now.
Thanks! Now, one good turn deserves another.
Try it.
I hate monkeys.
No, Mallah, this will not be our Waterloo.
Au revoir, mes amis.
Get down! Wait, that big weapon thing was A light switch? What are you grinning about? Souvenir.
Gorilla lice.
Huh? Oh, man! Uhh.
That's the last of the collars? And I can count on you to keep the other animals out of trouble? Good.
I'll be back for a visit.
I promise.
I think I'll call him Mr.
The rest of the pack is gone.
What are you still doing here? I think he wants to stay with you.
Can I keep him? Ha! First the sphere, now this beast? Dude, you sure make a habit of collecting strays.
Maybe because he's such a stray himself.
Aren't you? M'gann, I'm sorry.
I was just worried.
That's sweet, Connor, but on a mission, I'm your teammate, not your girlfriend.
Agreed? Yeah.
Well, he's gonna need a name.
Hows about Krypto? Pass.
Besides, isn't that taken? Look, I need to know, why did you keep the mole intel a secret? The source of the tip was Sportsmaster.
What? You can't trust him! I do not.
It seemed possible, even likely, that he was attempting to divide the team with false information.
And given how this mission went, he nearly succeeded.
But you had to consider it might be true.
As leader, I did.
In which case, I did not wish to alert the traitor.
Hate to say it, but Makes sense.
I am still prepared to step down.
All in favor of keeping Aqualad as leader? Guess it's unanimous.
See you tomorrow.
You're not coming back with us? Nope, gotta fly.
So, what are you gonna call him? What's wrong with wolf? Generic, but acceptable.
Well, boy, how'd it go? Ah, it was so cool! The team's way more fun to hang out with than the League, and they go on these covert ops missions that rock! And I got nabbed by the brain, and I got this tiger, and Ok, ok.
I'm glad you had fun, sport, but it's getting pretty late.
Brush your teeth and hit the hay.
Ok, ok.
I'm going.
Ahem! Aren't you forgetting something? Nah, I was just seeing if you were paying attention.
Shazam! Good night, Uncle Dudley.
Good night, Billy.
