Stopped the bleeding.

Do you have a minute?


well, yesterday we did some digging

into your past...

what's real,

and I think we may know...

I know what I am.

You do?

I don't understand.

It's all an illusion. [Chuckles]

I see that now.

Why'd I fight so hard?

Where are we?

It's just a room by a beach.

Impulses sent from nerve endings.

Electricity in the brain.

He told you?

He can bring him back. I know it.

Class starts in 5 minutes.

I know where they're holding Amy.

I'll be going to get her in the morning.

David, we talked about this.

I'm not asking you to go.

Well, I'm going.

These things take time.

To scope.

To observe.

Who? How many?

Defenses? Not just military.

They have their own special help.

People like you.

Sydney, you saw this with Walter.

[whispers inaudibly]

I'll be fine.


if we surprise them.

But, no.

They know.

You can't help her. Not yet.

Aren't you gonna ask about him?

The diver?

How does he look?

He looks good.


He lives in an ice cube.

I don't understand. How
long has he been in there?

The astral whatever?

In February, it'll be 21 years.

You know, David...

In the beginning, he was just like you.

Same kind of power.


Then he found a place

where he could rule.

Be the creator.

Then he...

started spending more and more time there.

Sometimes I'd just

find him sitting...

Was that your first time?


My first time was...

he was one of my mother's boyfriends.


I was 16. He was a journalist.

We had a flirtation and I was curious.

One night, they had too much to drink.

My mom passed out on the couch.

I heard him in the
bathroom taking a shower,

so I touched her hand,

and then I was her.

We went into the bathroom.


the switch didn't last long then,

and when he was inside me, I changed back.

And then my mom was there,

and everybody was screaming.

Who teaches us to be normal
when we're one of a kind?

Just promise me, if you get lost,

we get lost together.

It's a facility in the woods,

so we have to go in on the ground.

By which I mean,

we definitely should
not go in on the ground.

That'd be dumb.

He's gone.


- Who?
- David.


I heard voices,

looked for him everywhere.

He's not here.

Think he went to D3.


Wake everyone.

We're going?

To Division Three? Now?

No plan. No intel.

Just chickens with our heads cut o...

- He needs us.
- Then why'd he leave?

The sense I get with that guy is,

he's only ever thinking about numero uno.

So no, thank you.

They have his sister.


You don't think I have a sister?

Or a girlfriend? Or a mom?

This is war. We're fighting a war.

It's bigger than some guy
named David and his sister.

We can't lose him.


'Cause you think he's
going to bring Oliver back?


because he's too powerful.

If they turn him...

[door opens, slams]

[commotion outside]

Sydney, were you with him before?

How did he seem?



Something's changed.

He, uh...

Found a way for us to be together.

A place.

Did you tell him what you found out there?

Philly? Dr. Poole?


We did other things.


I think we need to work together here.

David's treatment is not...


I'm not treating him.

He's my man.

Which means, I care about what he wants.

What we want.

I could give a shit
about how he fits in here.

I'm just saying be careful.

- David's very fragile.
- He doesn't seem fragile.

Not since he came back.

I know.

And that worries me.

Miss Bird? Hello, Miss Bird?

Cary? [Transmission echoing]


what did you find?

It's complicated. [Echoing continues]

David was here. He took Amy.

Everyone is dead.

- I think we were wrong.
- No.

The whole approach.

Treating him... like the others.

He is schizophrenic.

This is not mental illness.

I mean split mind.

This monster isn't David.

It's a parasite of some kind. You see?

Another consciousness inside of him.

What does that mean?

This thing...

burrowed into David's
brain when he was a boy,

maybe even a baby,

and it has been there,

feeding on him,

ever since.

- The memories.
- The memories... exactly!

Every time David sees this thing,

or... or realizes it's there...

this creature makes him forget.

It rewrites his memory.

Is that why we couldn't see it?

I think so,

and I think it made you forget as well.

I mean, the... the power of this thing.

You're saying it has power, not David?

No, no.

David is a very, very powerful mutant.

He has to be, otherwise this
thing would split him apart.

You're... you're calling this thing "It,"

but what else could it
be if not another mutant?

An older mutant.

Its consciousness

separated from its body, you see?

And living inside David for...

30 years.
