Don't talk. It's okay, we're here.

You've had a good burn.

But we're gonna get you sorted out.

- [moans]
- Careful, careful, careful.

It's good. It's good.

I'm thinking of growing half a mustache.

Maybe half a beard.

Or... what's the look

where it's just a beard and no mustache?

Darling, hush.


There's my handsome guy.

- Mirror.
- Maybe wait until

- the swelling goes down.
- Give me the God damn mirror.

Code Black! Do it, now!

[explosion booming]

Bureau 19 has recommended desk duty.


Except, you know, in the field.

- What?
- I said, that's great.

Desk duty. Perfect. I'll
bring the desk with me.

That was my feeling.
Small desk, obviously.

Maybe it folds up. But
that way I'll have it

while I'm making the world
safe for democracy some more.

- Specialists don't...
- Yeah, okay. Here's the deal.

I have burns over 40% of my
body and I spent six weeks

with a tube jammed
into the head of my dick

while my husband cried
himself to sleep every night.

We were ambushed at the pool. Men died.

And I am going to finish what I started.

So if you want me behind a desk,
you better find a portable one.

Because the second I
walk out of this room,

I'm going to war.

Team A's been compromised.

- Team B?
- Ready at the go point.


Personal feelings?

Intelligence gathering.

Let's see what happens next.

So you're just gonna whip
up some kind of peace accord,

what, before lunch or by dinner?


I don't care if you save me

or the world...

if you don't save yourself.

You know the most dangerous
thing about schizophrenia?

- You're not...
- The most dangerous thing

is believing you don't have it.

That's the trick.

The mind killer.

Your disease convinces
you, you don't have it.

So, for example, one
day in the hospital,

you meet a girl and she has some friends

and they tell you you're not sick.

You have super powers.

And more than anything,
you wanna believe it

because that means you're not crazy.

It means you can fall in love
and live happily ever after.

But you know if you believe
it... if you surrender to the hope

and you're wrong, then...

you're never coming back.

I'm here. I'm real.

The power is real.

You gotta accept it.
Otherwise, we can't move on.

I was in Clockworks for six years.

Drugged, doing nothing.
Contributing nothing.

And now, finally, I can be useful.

I can help.

Don't you get it? I
am so sick of myself.

This only works if it's not about me.

And roger.

Be advised we are
monitoring situation.

We have secure audio and visual.

Five by Five on all
signals from your position.

Maintain current posture.

Tactical is in place.

We can initiate assault
and extraction on command.

Awaiting your signal.


Come on, just let...
Face-to-face. Please.


Well, if you've got a better idea...

Yeah. Kill him.

- Kill them all.
- Grow up.

We can't just murder people.

Or is that who we are now?

That's who they are.

So if you don't want to be dead...

- Do you have to?
- Yes. I absolutely have to.

If this thing fails, well...

you didn't see all of Walter's
blood pouring out of his eyes.

All right. We move, then.

Assume D3 knows our position.

Execute Plan M. Just let me talk to him.

We have a...

- rapport.
- He tried to kill you.

- Twice.
- To be fair,

the second time, he
was just gonna kill you.

And anyway, with that
kind of thinking...

- David.
- No. With that kind

of thinking, wars would never end.

David, read his mind.

You have the power.
You can control it now.

We may never get this chance again.

To know what D3 knows.

Their operations, their
spies, their tactics.

Read his mind.

So use him, you're
saying. And then what?

- Kill him?
- 100%.

Hi... look, whatever we do,

we need to get this
parasite out of David's head.

And fast.

The... the halo is losing power.

Hey, kid!

And when it fails?

Think of the Shadow
King as a computer virus.

It's been in David's head for decades.

Learning his systems,
bypassing his defenses.

Now it's ready to override
the original program.

Meaning me.

Exactly. Meaning you.

If we don't get Amahl Farouk

out of your head today,
he will erase you.


It's sweet. They think
they can save you.

There's 50 of you. We're a tactical arm

working in conjunction
with government agencies

all over the world.

And dinosaurs once ruled the Earth.

And remind me what happened to them.

Are you threatening
the entire human race?

Is that... do I have that right?

What's your name, son?

- Well, Clark,

I'm Melanie.

I know. Melanie Bird.

Wife of Oliver Anthony Bird.

Missing for 20 years and presumed dead.

Oh, he'll turn up.

They know where I am, Division Three.

They'll come looking
when we don't check in.

I'm thinking 20 minutes.
And when they do,

they'll bring an army.

Here's the thing, Clark:

You caught me on a good day,

so I'm gonna be honest with you.

You were right.

About David.

He's a world-breaker.

And if you'd killed him
before he figured that out,

then maybe your tactical
forces and... what is it?

World coalition?

Maybe that would've impressed me.

But not now.

Well, kid...

you better learn to fly like a bird,

because the age of the dinosaur is over.

My mother died a few years back.


She tried all the things.

Chemo, radiation, surgery.

They put it in a bag

Am I the tumor in this?

Oh, I've got other faces.

You want me out of
David? Fine, I'm gone.

But you have to help me get away.

Why would I do that?

Because if you don't, I'll kill him.

Not if we kill you first.

You ever make soup?

Cut up the meat, vegetables, add broth,

cook it for a couple hours.

You ever try to unmake soup?

I'm part of him.

And the only way you're gonna get me out

without killing him is if I decide

to leave on my own.

There it is.

Now you see.

- How would I...
- You're smart,

for a lady.

You'll figure it out.

Look, even if I wanted to,

I'm not even in the

branches of government.

I just need a meeting, face-to-face.

Why? So you can melt their heads?

All right, this meeting is over.

No, I need a meeting so that I can

change their mind...

We need to get him to the lab.

So what's going on? Is he sick?

Nothing. Ptonomy, get him to holding.

He's not sick.

He has some kind of
creature in his head.

A mutant. Very old.

- Syd!
- No.

David's right.


This thing attached itself
to him when he was a kid.

Like a parasite.

It's trying to erase him.

But we're gonna get it out.

Maybe I'm wrong, but
I think you like David.

I think you feel something for him.

So I'm gonna give you a chance here.

You wanna help?

That's nice. Take him to the cell.

I can't risk it.

Now, this device targets

It creates a vortex... A

Which sucks out hopefully

And leaves David intact.
