I'm going after him.


he doesn't know...

Go on.

The difference

between things
real and not real,

right and wrong.

I'm going after him.

He doesn't know
the difference...

I'm going after him.

He's a good... person.

I'm going after him.

CLARK: Because
of what I just said?

Because love is
what we have to save

if we're gonna save the world.

I'm just not sure
that's what he's doing.

It's okay.

Don't be scared.


Ah. There you go.

There you go.

(sighs) There you go.

MELANIE: Have you
heard the one where...

the definition of "crazy"
is doing the same thing

over and over again and
expecting a different result?

Where are we?

You know what
made me think of that?


Are the others here?

- Fukyama?
- Greatest threat

to our gender

since time began.

- (pained gasp)
- Yet here we are.

Addicted to this delusion: love.

We must be underground.

I fell a long way.

You're not listening.

I get it.

Oliver left and you're pissed.

But that's not what's
happening to me.

And honestly...

I'm kind of sick
of talking about it.

We need to get out of here.

You know, the praying
mantis has the right idea.

Fornicate, then eat their heads.

I mean...

really, what do we need men for?

Well, except their sperm.

Melanie... come on.


let me show you something.


(echoing): Syd?

SYD: Is that...

right now?


MELANIE: He doesn't love you.

What did you say?

Oh... oh, I mean,
I'm sure he loves you

the way...

a boy loves his mommy

or a dog loves a bone,

but, uh...

what he really loves...

what they all love...

is that feeling of power knowing
you've been chosen by God.

That you're special.

That you have a destiny.

No piece of ass can
ever compete with that.

I'm in hell.

- This is hell.
- Look.

SYD: Just promise me...

if you get lost, we
get lost together.

- How are you...
- You know, they say

you can't convince
someone they're wrong

simply by giving them the facts.

But a good story
will do it every time.

So I'm gonna tell you a story.

Once upon a time

- there was a little boy.
- (coos)

A very special little boy.

(kids laughing)

And he had a gift...

and a curse.

What do you think his curse was?


someone put a
monster in his head.

No, silly.

The monster was the gift.

His curse was...

he's insane.


(David growling)

That was...

Was what?

The devil on his shoulder?


You can make someone do
what they don't want to do...

but there's no force on Earth

that makes you enjoy it.

- There.
- (David grunting)

You see it?

His true face.

The one he hides.


(wind rushing)

(door closes)

OLIVER: ♪ Would you
like to swing on a star ♪

♪ Carry moonbeams
home in a jar ♪

♪ And be better
off than you are ♪

♪ Or would you
rather be a pig? ♪

There you are.

- Have you always been this slow?
- Where is she?

Chill, baby. There's
no boo-hoo here.

I just thought we
could talk in private.

(Oliver grunts)


Aah, the hair! The hair!

(Oliver grunts)

Careful, daddy-o.

Don't hurt the vessel...
It's not his fault.

Shut up.

I am done listening to you.

Just tell me what
you did with Syd,

and I promise,
I'll kill you quick.

(sighs) You're not
making any sense.

How can you kill
me? I'm part of you.

Stop it!


(singsongy): I know
something you don't know.

Where is she?

(pops lips, key jangles)


you asked for it.

(deep rumble)

(yelling in pain)


You know what she told me?


"Love won't save us.

It's what we have to save."

And you know what makes
us hard enough to do it?

All the pain and the damage,

everything you did to me.

The scar tissue.

All your nightmares,

every symptom, the
lies you made me tell,

the drugs I did.

That's my armor, baby.

I'm the lunatic
you turned me into.

And I'm ready for my revenge.

Tell me.

Tell me where she is.

Oh... (inhales)

Tell me.

- (drill whirring)
- (screaming)

Tell me.

MELANIE: Look at him.

- Your man.
- (screaming)

The things he'll do

to a friend.

DAVID: Tell me.


That's not...

It's a trick.

It's Farouk.

You think that matters?

The victim? Look at him.

His true face.

Now you tell me,

who's the monster?

(engine sputters)

(snaps fingers)

(Lenny whistling
"Happy Birthday to You")

(whistling trails off)

Hey, what are we doing here?




Excuse me.

Um, do you know where a
girl could find a monastery?

(chuckles) Cool.


(whistling "Happy
Birthday to You")

(drilling, screaming)

DAVID: Tell me.

Tell me!

(Oliver screaming)

(Oliver pants)

- (drill whirs)


(coughs) I'm gonna be sick.


It doesn't bother you?

Seeing him there like that?

It's not him.

My Oliver.

That's just a mask.

You don't seem like you.

I've changed. My
eyes are clear now.

There's something
else you should see.

SYD: How are you doing this?

Showing me these things.

You know about her, don't you?

The other woman.

The other you.

In the future, the
other me. Yeah, I know.

Do you know the things
David does with her?

we say good-bye?

He didn't tell you.

It's not a big deal. It's me.

Why would I...

Why should I let that bother me?

But it does.

Did he tell you what
she asked him to do?

Help Farouk find his body.

Did he tell you why?


He says he doesn't know.

Do you believe him?

Do you want to know?

FUTURE SYD: I need you

to stop the world from ending.

And who will end the world?

Tiny humans with their bombs?

World War III?




Stop it.

(Farouk laughs)

centuries, everyone said

Amahl Farouk is the villain.

And now you're telling me

that the opposite is true.

That the villain

is a hero.

And the hero...

is the villain?

- I don't understand.
- MELANIE: Yes, you do.

You just don't want to admit it.

You're saying...

what, that he... David...

The greatest monsters are
the ones in human clothes.

- How...
- How does he turn?

I don't know.

All I know is he does,

into something magnificent,

something terrible.


the world killer.

You don't know that.
The future's not written.

Oh, Sydney. Look at him.

He has too much power.

All his life he's been
tricked and abused.

His head filled with voices.

He's seen things,

horrible things,

things no child
should never see.

So he lied and he stole
and he ruined everything.

And he wore his
madness like a coat.

And then he hanged himself...

because he saw what he becomes.

And then,

when his life was truly over...

he spent five years

in a mental hospital.

He's a good...

He's a good person.

He's a psychopath.

And do you want
to know how I know?

Because the same
man who did this...

SYD: You promise?

No secrets.

No secrets.

Did this...


and this...

Hey, sexy.

And this.

Oliver, please.

Does he have her?

I have to know.

DAVID: He's not dead.

He should be, but he's not.

Wha... What happened?

I tortured him.



In another body now,
maybe even his own.

I got your message.

The car, the gun...
They're here, with Lenny.

But Clark's coming, too,
and he's bringing something.

The Choke.

It's a dampener.

What does it dampen?


Our powers.

Something to do with the...
frequency when you ring it.

None of our powers work.

- So you...
- When we ring that bell,

we're all just men...

for a few minutes.

Well, I hate to...

but there's a
minotaur in the maze,

and it's hunting us.

- So we should...
- He did this to me.

The Shadow King.


You don't have to worry.

I think Oliver's okay.

DAVID: That's not
what worries me.

See, I'm sitting here thinking
about how I'm gonna kill him.

My parasite.

(inhales deeply)

All the different ways.

And what worries me...

is how good it feels.



(electrical crackling)

(whirring, crackling)

Found you.

That's one for me.

I have to stop him.


No. David.

He's the monster now.

Maybe he always was.

(snarling, hissing)


I got this.


I need to hit something.

He brought the Choke.

To bed, she said.
