Final Space (2018–…): Season 2, Episode 6 - Arachnitects - full transcript

When Mooncake is mysteriously taken from the Crimson Light, the crew must find him in the nether reaches of space. Meanwhile, Tribore rebuilds the resistance.

Don't shed tears for me.

We don't even know
what you're doing.

I'm leaving.

The old world needs to rise from
the ashes like a bedazzled phoenix.

My senses tell me undisclosed
dangers are growing,

undisclosed dangers are brewing!

I must rebuild the Resistance

so we can resist the Uprising
against the Insurgency

who's resisting the Rebellion

- against the Insurrection.
- What?

- No tears!
- I wasn't even tr...

Look towards the stars
at the rising dawn.

The Resistance will be there.

And Tribore will be there,
leading it.

And so my story begins...

A blood moon rises.

I seek others.

To heed the calling.

And, like myself, we will be...


2x06 - Arachnitects

Will the Triblahdoors
ever get their homeland back?

I certainly hope not.

Any, uh...
Any of you seen Mooncake?

I heard some weird sounds
coming from the hangar bay earlier.

And I was not eavesdropping, okay?!

Alright, geez, okay.
Weird sounds?

I mean, oh! Ah!

I think I know what's going on.

His skin's getting greener,
his antennae are quivering...

- we've all been there.
- We have?

I have.
Stop looking at me!

His body's changing.

He's becoming a man... cake.

- Gary, he doesn't have any ...
- Yeah, I know.

- We can all see ...
- You don't have to tell me.

- I mean, he's r-round.
- I know! Alright?

I'm gonna give Mooncake
"the talk" I never got.

What ... What do you guys me...

What are you guys talking about?
What talk?

Avocato never gave you the talk?

And that's when I got caught
upside down pants-less in a hammock

at Bailey Beth Sanderson's
summer cabin.

It was...

- It was an ordeal.
- Chookity.

- Okay, good talk!
- I have a question.

- Yeah, go for it.
- Um... Why?

Why? Because little
invisible chaos marbles

are exploding
all over your insides.

- Then they're real?
- Yes. Yes, they are.

- Mm, thought so.
- That explains a truckload, friends!

Huzzah for pubescence!

Remember little buddy,
you can always talk to me

about anything, okay?

About this,
about losing your powers ...

- anything.
- Hmm!

Solved the problem.

- See ya!
- Ohh!

- You okay, little buddy?
- Ohh, oh-ohh.

- Chookity pok!
- Mooncake?

- Chookity!
- Mooncake!

Did I scare you with my detailed
stories of bodily changes?!

- Mooncake!
- Chookity.

No! No, no, no, no!

Mooncake, no!
AVA, follow Mooncake!

- Lightfold!
- What's the magic word?

I know! Uh, please?
Now? Tuesday?

French vanilla?
Washing machine?

Am I warm?
Give me a hint!

- We don't have time for this, AVA!
- Got it. A cat!

Anything to shut him up.

Still not fast enough!

We're losing him.
Engage the drop drive!


I need you to do your thingy.
I need to get Mooncake!

I can't just make it happen.
I'm not you

at Bailey Beth Sanderson's
summer cabin!

- I need to be sparked!
- How do I do that?

- How? How?
- As me about the prom.

Everything prom related
brings me to a very dark place.

Everything about prom brings me
to an even worse place.

Oh! Have you even had
to find a dress?!

Fix your hair?!
Impress Jordan Hammerstein

who you hate with all your guts

because he won't even look at you?!

- Look at me now, Jordan!
- I am not ... I'm not Jordan!

Ask me to the prom, Jordan!
Ask me right now!

Ash, will you go to the prom with ...




I was so close.

I was so close
to getting Mooncake back.

Take that, wall!
You've been cruisin' for a bruisin'!

Stupid wall!


Don't worry, Gary.
I'll get that Lightning Bug.

Uh, hmm.


- Bolo?
- I got it!

I don't know how you tolerate him.

Yo, did you just shrink yourself
to chat me up?

Because now is not the time.

Gary, nothing happens
without Mooncake.

- You must retrieve him.
- I get it. Okay, but where is he?

Mooncake has been taken
to another dimension

by the Arachnitects.

The Arachnitects?
I thought they were only legend.

Any idea how we can get him?

With a dimensional key.

But first, it must be activated.

Hurry, Gary.
The Arachnitects wait for no one.

We can work with this.

Does anyone know how
to activate a dimensional key?

I don't, but I might know
someone who does.

Hey, Fraskenhauer.
Look, we need to find Mooncake.

- Can you unlock one of these?
- Sure, I can.

But first you have to beat me in a
little scrum, niblits, tittlepops.

I don't ...

Oh! Scrum, niblits,
tittlepops, squaw!

- Aw, crap.
- Seriously!

You have 18 hands,
and you go all tittlepops?

Just tell us how
to freakin' open the key.

Find Molelito.
He's a cosmic locksmith.

He knows everything about keys.

how 'bout an arm wrestle?

- Get in there!
- Oh, God!

Oh, I've already had therapy to
forget his little cavity hand.

Good to see you.

- Sup?
- Uh, yeah.

Wh... W-What's up?
So, hey, so ...

- Sup.
- Sup.

- Sup.
- Yeah, s-sup. Sup, okay.

- Sup.
- Yeah.

- Sup.
- Sup.

- Alright, sup.
- Sup.

- Can we stop this?
- Sup.

- Sup!
- Suuup.

What do you want from me,

Alright, look, we're ...
we're trying to save

my little buddy Mooncake, and ...

- Sup!
- My ... Son of a ...

Can you stop saying that?!

Oh, my God,
there's a bigger one now.

- Oh, no.
- Super Molelito Deluxe.

- Hey, big guy, what's up?
- Sup.


- Sup.
- Sup.

Do any of the freakin'
two of you know

- how to unlock a dimensional key?
- No.

But we know someone who does.

- Sup.
- Sup.

I swear, if this next person
can't open the freakin' key...

Calm down, primate.
The good general will know.

He always knows.

what brings you around?

Clarence, why the hell does
everyone know who you are?

Strictly business this time, Catalope.

- You bet, Mr. Naughty.
- Hey, hey. Keep it cool.

I... We're looking to
unlock a dimensional key.

I'm a simple scout.
You need a great leader.

The Head of the Resistance!

I felt their eyes on me

as I entered Sal's Watering hole.

Sal's was always filled
with the hardest of hard.

And I needed hard.

Really super hard.

But not so hard
that I couldn't break it.

Otherwise, it would be too hard.

Half way semi-hard.
That's it.

That's what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for someone.

Someone with skills.

Someone's who's half way
semi hard.

You just killed my cousin!

Go get your drinks
somewhere else.

Who was he to give me orders?
I mean, look at him.

And that shirt.

My eyes searched
and searched...

... until...

Oh, lordy.

What's your name?

- Thud.
- Thud. I like that.

You want to join the Resistance?

- What are we resisting?
- Take your pick.

But I'm sensing
things are about to heat up.

Mooncake's been kidnapped.

I sensed that.

We need to unlock
a dimensional key.

Whiskey on the rocks.

- Tribore!
- No, no, no, no, no.

- M-Make that old fashioned.
- Tribore!

Look, I haven't a clue
how to do that.

But the Resistance is on the ...

Actually, make that a sea breeze.

Well, he's not gonna be any help.

I heard that.
I'm always listening.

Gary, don't worry.
We'll get Mooncake back.

I am worried.

Alright, Primate.

I suppose I may know
one last person

- who could unlock that key.
- What?

Why didn't you
bring this up sooner?

Family drama.
Didn't want to pull that thread ...

Don't need to hear the story,
just tell me who can help us.

My niece, Dartreeshio,
Unlocker of Worlds!

Your niece's name is Dartreeshio?

Unlocker of worlds
and consumer of Realms!

Oh, it's getting longer.
So, unlocker of worlds

and consumer of realms is her ...

- It's her family name, yes.
- What's your last name?

- Polkawitz.
- Mm-hmm.

- So, Dartreeshio ...
- Unlocker of worlds!

Consumer of realms!

-And world's worst niece!
- More names.

Alright, you know what,
can she active the key?

- If she can't... no one can.
- Why are you being so helpful?

I find your question insulting.
As for the answer...

Well, okay then.

He's not gonna finish
that one off. Where is she?

I must warn you ...
Her powers are greater,

but her beauty is immeasurable.

Do not look directly into her face.

- Clarence.
- Oh! I looked! Oh, oh!

Why did I look?!
Oh no, you were right, Clarence!

- Oh, this is ... My eyes!
- Aaargh! I looked, too!

- My eyes!
- Why?! Why didn't I listen?!

You miserable goat.
I see you remembered my birthday.

Yes, yes, of course.
Your birthday ...

I looked, too!

How does one forget
the day the heavens smiled.

Nice of you to lie, Clarence.
What brings brings here

- with this minion of the misbegotten?
- This!

A dimensional key.

I haven't seen one
of those... ever.

Activate it.

If anyone can ...
No, no, oh!

What is with your family eating keys!

Get it out!
That's ours!

Stop it! Stop it!
You're a weirdo! Stop it!

- Let go!
- Sorry.

It's happening!
It's happening!


Well, that didn't work.

- You're melting the freakin' key!
- Ooh!

Uh! Oh, it burns!
Oh! Aah!

KVN's got it!
Ow, ow, so hot!

I could turn off my heat sensors,
but I want to feel something.


Of course. A combination
of song, painful screaming,

and being whacked about
with abandon.

Hmm. How could
we have missed that?

The unlock-ening
of the world awaits.

- So says, Dartreeshio ...
- Unlock-ener of worlds!

Oh, my ...
Oh, there's a key hole.

Okay. This part is cool.

I will give you that.

Who among you dares
to unlock the unlock-ening?

Hmm. You?

Naw. Naw. You?
Definitely not you.

Oh, good.
I thought it was gonna be ...

- You!
- Uh...

Ash, I was thinking I could wear

a crisp white tux to prom
to match your ...

Now turn the key
that turns the worlds.

Whoa, I can taste my eyes.

- Oh!
- What is this place?

- Whoa.
- Aww, they're cute!

- Look at it.
- Disappointing.

Mm, chookity pok.

They got Mooncake,
and we're getting him back.

Just like that,
the Resistance doubled!

Our mission?

Find Mooncake.

But our numbers
are still too small.

If we're gonna stand
a stand a chance,

we need...
the Blade!

This place seems so familiar.

Like a memory long forgotten.

What the hell
are you doing back here?!

I ignored the bartender.

I mean, look at him.
And that shirt.

It's awful, just awful.

I'm looking for The Blade.

Unt ya!
Those slacks could use a pleat.

A pleat.

His sharpest blade
was his tongue.

Looks like we found him.

A new approach was needed.

We had to think outside the box.

No bad ideas.
Just different.

- What the hell?!
- Change your shirt. Then we'll talk.

- Mooncake!
- Gary?

These beings seem
a tad too powerful

- to take down with a blaster.
- What are you?

A power far beyond
your comprehension.

We are the authors of Final Space.

We are the Arachnitects.

You took something from me.

The missing piece.

- Mm.
- His name is Mooncake!

And he wasn't missing
until you took him!

He was never yours to claim.

Yeah, well, I respectfully disagree!

All are blind until...
their eyes are opened.

We Arachnitects were created

by beings of unimaginable light.

They commanded us
to craft the Titans

to aid us in the layering
of dimensions.

You made the Titans?!
That's very impressive!

- They made the Titans, Gary.
- I heard.

All was well until we reached
the end of the universe ...

a place of endless darkness

where an unconquerable evil
named Invictus dwells.

- Clarence, pay attention!
- What?!

Invictus poisoned the Titans.

Chaos reigned.

Only one Titan remained
uncorrupted ... Bolo.

Oh, yeah, we met him.
Cool dude.

Yes, Little Cato,
he is, as you say, a cool dude.

With Bolo's help, we imprisoned
Invictus and the Titans

in Final Space.

Great story, alright,
but can someone please tell me

what this all has to do
with Mooncake?

He's getting there, just give it a sec.

For eons, the Titans tried
to escape Final Space,

clawing at the walls
until they broke through.

Your father, John Goodspeed,
closed that opening ...

My dad?

But in doing so, he released
a piece of Final Space

that crystallized into your world.

Creating the one you call

Wha... Whoa.
My dad made Mooncake?

Okay, doesn't that make him mine?

So, how about you
just hand him over,

- and we'll be on our way.
- No!

Oh, good!
There's more!

When Mooncake left Final Space,

he created a cosmic imbalance.

That weakened the walls
of Final Space,

making your world vulnerable
to the onslaught of Titans

and their master, Invictus.

As we speak, the walls holding
them back are crumbling.

Unless the balance is restored,
all will be lost.

You can not hold me.
I'm coming.

I'm coming.

Mooncake must be
returned ... now.



There has to be another way.

Take me.
I'll do anything!

Are you really willing
to endanger everything for him?

I don't know.

I've lost so much,
and I can't lose him, too.

But, Gary, all is already lost.


Oh, wow. That hurts.

Probably should've
seen that coming.

I won't let go, Mooncake.
I've got your back.

Chook-it-y pok!

You got them back!

Your powers! You got 'em back! Yeah!

- Chookity pok!
- Fascinating.

It seems Mooncake not only
has the power to destroy,

he also has the power to heal.

We figured that out!

- I'm sorry.
- It's alright. You're new.

Mooncake can stay with me

and the universe can still be balanced.

So, what do you say about
him working from home?

- That's a good idea!
- Jeremy!

- Ugh.
- Alright.

Then we will let Mooncake
work from home.

But he must swear
to never use his power

to open Final Space again.

And he must be reachable
on weekends.

- Jeremy!
- I'm sorry, again. I got excited.


Break that promise,
and we take Mooncake back.

- Forever.
- Well, to be clear ...

Oh, okay.
You're just gonna go.

One more piece,
and my puzzle was complete.

Henry was a sharpshooter
in the Infinity Guard.

The best there was,
the best there is.

His head shots were
also to die for.

The time has come at last...

- for a group photo.
- Save Mooncake.

- Mooncake!
- Unt ya!

Why, I think we've got it.

Every great resistance begins
with a great newsletter.

Yo, Tribore, good news, we
found Mooncake, so, uh...

piss off.

Big news, guys.
Thanks to our tireless efforts,

Mooncake's been saved.
How did we do it?

We don't know.

But we sure as hell
looked great doing it.

This newsletter's so stupid.

Right, Mooncake?

Nice to have you back

for our regular game
of shadow blockers.

I'm coming.

Do you think because
I can't be seen...

I'm gone?
