Legion (2017–…): Season 2, Episode 2 - Chapter 10 - full transcript

David meets his oldest enemy.

♪ ♪

A diversion?



So we can get in.

Yeah, I got that part.


Remember when we used to
get high, and you'd ask,

every time, "Why is it blue?"

And I would say, "It's always blue, man."

Y-Yeah, except that never happened.

That's a fake memory.

I-I didn't meet you till the hospital.

But you remember it, right?

Fake, real, you remember it!

So it happened.

Are you you at all?

Lenny from the-the hospital,
the corn flake girl?

Who couldn't stand the word "nipples"?

Or is this just a... a mask?

[GROANS] Does it matter?

Bodies and minds, humanity.

Nobody has ever asked
a puma its opinion.

Or a stalk of asparagus how it feels.

My associate is who she
needs to be at this moment.


Look, all I know is
she said to help you...

Syd... and I love her, I trust her,

so... I-I will.

Just, no more lies.
If we're gonna do this,

if I'm gonna help you find your body,

you're gonna give me back my friends,

and we're gonna do whatever
she... Syd, future Syd...

Whatever she says.

But let me be ultra
clear: nobody gets hurt.

You got it?


OLIVER: He agreed.

We go tonight.

OLIVER 2: Don't worry.

We'll find it.

[QUIETLY]: When I spoke to the boss...


He said the plan was to
kill Oliver when we find him.

Let's make sure we find him first.

DAVID: Is he... sh-she...

are they...

I don't know what to call them.

We call them Vermillion.

DAVID: Are they mutants?

Androids, I think.

Synthetic, artificial.

I'll be honest.

They made me nervous at first.

But now I find them...


They've got no memories for me.

Just data.

How many are there?

No one knows.

All right, stop the truck!

SYD: Why?

We're here.


VERMILLION 1: Lead us.

PTONOMY: What is that?


VERMILLION 2: Chance the
object is explosive in nature...



DAVID: What's wrong?

SYD: Nothing.

Just your asshole parasite

messing with my head.

PTONOMY: Stay alert.

This feels like a trap.

No, they're gone.

VERMILLION 2: An error?

DAVID: Trick.

He knew I was looking,
showed me this spot,

- and then left.
- PTONOMY: So, if Oliver's

not here, where is he?

I-It's advanced, but...

but not Shi'ar. [CHUCKLES]

That was my first guess, as well.

No. I-I can't shake the feeling

that somehow I
constructed it, this-this orb.

Believe me, I know how that sounds, yes.

It's me. Cary.

Can you hear me in there?

- OLIVER [ECHOING]: Can you hear me in here?



Let's dance, asshole.

[GASPS] Kerry?

I'm scared.



Hey, you.




Where is he?



Hey. Are you okay?

Yeah, I'm-I'm okay.

Third floor's secure. Report.


Come on.




- Can you feel them?
- Hmm?

Are they still here?


No, they're, they're gone.

- Okay, come on.


What's wrong?



♪ ♪


OLIVER: Melanie.

Is he here?

The monk of the Mi-Go order?

Have you seen him?

Is he here?

At Division 3?

The monk of the Mi-Go order?

MELANIE: He was searching for a monk.

A member of the Mi-Go order.

Oliver believes he's hiding here.



VERMILLION 3: Many years ago,

the Mi-Go monks were wiped out

by The Miser Sunday.

Miser who?

I believe it was before your time.

But you've heard the same rumors I have.

When Amahl Farouk was defeated,

his mind was separated from his body.

MELANIE: But his body
was then hidden away

with the monks.

So, if Farouk was
looking for his body...

A Mi-Go monk would know its location.


So, is the monk here or not?

We will put this in simple terms.

David Haller, there's a 63%
chance you've been lying to us.


MELANIE: Lie exactly about what?


That's a lot.

us from the building

while the Shadow King broke in.

A diversion?

Working in conjunction with Farouk.

- Conspiring.
- SYD: He told you.

Farouk tricked us out of the building.

That's what he does. Trick people.

- Syd...
- No.

Tell them.

I'd be careful who you blame right now.

Maybe don't piss off our only hope

of killing the monster.

DAVID [ECHOING]: Nobody...
nobody... nobody gets hurt.

Nobody... nobody... nobody gets hurt.


KERRY: Ow. That was too loud.

Is that what I sound like?


- CARY: Kerry?
- What?

- CARY: I'm scared.
- I know. I'm scared, too.

DAVID: Kerry?

Are you okay?

Yeah. Try getting flipped inside
out and see how you like it.

You want something?

I need more help finding Farouk.

- DAVID 1: Liar.
- DAVID 2: Shut up, shut up.

Some modifications to the tank.

Do I look like the fix-it guy?

Or any guy?

I'm the X-chromosome ass kicker.

Or maybe you missed the part

where there was an arm
sticking out of my stomach.

- I just...
- DAVID 1: Tell her the truth.

I wouldn't ask unless...

DAVID 2: You need to
talk to Syd. Future Syd.

It's important.

DAVID 1: Is that... did you
just give her a nickname?

DAVID 2: She's looking
at us. Say something.

The sooner we find Farouk,

the sooner we can get you guys,

you know, back the way you were.

He said that made sense.

- Who?
- Cary.

In my head.


Well, I was thinking,
if you modify the tank,

if there was some way
I could see past the...

right now 'cause his
thoughts are shielded.

He's hiding from me.

But if I could find a way

outside of space and time, see the past

where he's been or maybe the
future, where he's gonna be...

Multidimensional perception.

I just... I need to get ahead of him.

Cary said it might be too dangerous

and that you could explode.


I trust you... him... so...

so let's try to avoid that.


Which one?




Yellow 40.

Speak up.



Okay, which switch?

The one with the lightning bolt.

It's his funeral.




Cary says, "Hang on."




♪ ♪



[SIGHS] Syd.

It worked.

You... are you real?

Possible. Not possible.

To be here, for you to be here.

DAVID: Well, I'm here. We're here.

I had to see you again...

to understand.

They killed people.

I-I let them. I helped them

because you said...


I never thought I'd
see you again like this.

What, am I dead in the future?

Wait, am I dead?

It's complicated.

Good complicated?

- Oh!


Wha-What-what is it?

Ah, I tried to read your mind.

I don't think that works
because I'm from the...

Future. Yeah, I got that.

Look, I don't know what
happens to me, to us,

what disaster or monster, but...

you came to me because of love.

What we have...

You trust me.

And I trust you.

But what you're asking...

to help this thing, I got to know why.

It started like any other idea...

as an egg.

And then the few of us who
are left went into hiding.

But we don't have long. It's coming.

DAVID: What's coming?

- Farouk?
- No, he's dead in my timeline.

You killed him.


About a week from now. In the desert.

You bashed his brains in.


Well, then, who...?

It doesn't matter.

We need him when things turn.

He killed...

He killed a few.

This thing kills everyone.

Kills every-everyone.

You're so...


Time does that to people.



how you were.

In the past, before.


Can I see you again?

You brought me.

It isn't my decision.

Well, if it was your decision,
would you like to see me again?

Like this?


NARRATOR: A wise man once said,

"Reality is that which, when
you stop believing in it,

doesn't go away."

For the tick,

reality is a product of
temperature and butyric acid.

Its perception of the
world is its reality.

The bloodhound has 200
million scent receptors.

Its perception of the world

is based fundamentally on smell.

A dog doesn't reason.

A tick never thinks about the universe

in any way separate from
its biological interactions

with the universe.

Human beings, on the other hand...

Imagine a boy.

From a young age, he is taught wrong.

This color is called red.

This one is green.



NARRATOR: Human beings
are the only animal

that forms ideas about their world.

We perceive it not through our
bodies but through our minds.

Remember, red means
stop, green means go.

NARRATOR: We must agree on what is real.



Because of this, we are
the only animal on Earth

that goes mad.

CLARK: Hi. You have a minute?

DAVID: Actually, I was... I was just...

CLARK: Oh, it'll only take a second.

I feel like this is our spot.

Are you... 'Cause I got...

I was going in the tank to...

Oh, you were just in there, I thought.

Some modifications to
get outside space-time.

Isn't that what you told Kerry?

Over my head, the science, but
I got to ask... did it work?


That line you gave about seeing
where Farouk was gonna be...

Or... where he was.

- I'm...
- No, of course we know where he was.

He was here. He killed 11 of my men,

turned one into a pig,

scared the shit out of a bunch of kids.

I feel like, in order
to answer that question,

I need to explain how telepathy works.

Did you find him? Yes or no?

He hides.

I used to think it was
just inside Oliver's mind,

but then I realized he keeps
other minds in there with him.

Lenny. Maybe others.

And when he senses me
looking, he brings one forward

and hides inside of it.

So, uh, what you're
saying is, you're useless.

Or maybe you're...

Maybe I'm what?

Are you familiar with
the term "collusion"?

You're starting to make me mad.

Oh, are you gonna put more

office supplies in my face?

Burn me alive?


You were the bad guy.

Yeah, that's funny.

I thought you were the bad guy.

CLARK: I know you're lying.

I think you're helping
him, but I don't know why.

DAVID: And I think your
job is to suspect everyone,

and that makes everyone a suspect.


Why'd you take us to the desert?

I told you, I saw him there.

Amahl Farouk. The Shadow King.

Yeah, but I-I thought you
didn't know what he looked like.

Oliver. He's in Oliver.
That's who I saw.

That's not what you said.

Just let me do my job.

This'll all be over soon enough.

Okay. But just remember...

[SINGSONGY]: we see everything.





DAVID: Be strong.

Tell him we're in control.

Nobody else gets hurt.

Oliver, Farouk. We need to talk.

♪ ♪




Why so sad, my dear?

Where's Oliver?

Oh, wait, are you...

Monsieur Amahl Farouk.


You heard that?



It's a muscle, my dear.

The big gray meat.

You got to work it out, get it stronger.


Learn this stuff.


You decide what is real and what is not.

You. Your will.


[CHUCKLES] What is the phrase? Um...

The kiddie table.

You got to get up from the kiddie table.

Come and sit with the big boys.

It's all about respect, my man.

You and I, we are

les dieux.


What did John Lennon say?

Bigger than Jesus.

Look at you, such a sad face.

Why you got such a sad face?

You read my mind. You tell me.


You feel boo-hoo. Used.


Now we need to figure
out if you're mad at me

or yourself.






♪ ♪


Le sport.


Physical. Very physical.

What is the word? Uh...


- Huh?
- Shut up.



Oh, you're strong.

Very strong.


FAROUK: But you're
playing the wrong game.

Shall we continue?


I told her I'd help you. And I will.

But no more violence.


Or what?

More violence? Huh?

I don't trust you.

I don't need you to trust me,

but you will respect me.

I'm not some cockroach that
you can step on with a boot.



If you help me to find my
body, I will be in your debt.

And where I come from,

debt is something that must be honored.

No more killing.





Fine. I promise.

I'll find your monk...

if he's at Division 3.

Wait for my signal.



LENNY: You know, I was thinking...

now that you're, uh, out of the closet,

you and the kid talking
again, face-to-face,

that maybe I could go.

Go where?

You know.

Back to my life!



But you're dead, your body.


But I was thinking maybe...

you could make me a new one.

Right? Come on.

You'd be the ultimate badass. [CHUCKLES]

All I'm saying is, you got
what you wanted out of me, man.


Your friendly neighborhood junkie.

You popped me like a
tick, stole my face.

And I'm not complaining.
I'm not, it was...

it's-it's been a shit blast, really.

But... you know, a little boring.

I mean, all-all that
haunted house stuff.

All that...


I am your conscience."


[NORMAL VOICE]: You know how long it's been

since I got laid, man?

S-So I was thinking, you know,
you-you keep Oliver, right?

And-and I can just...

I'll just sneak out the back door.


But I am going, right?



What would you do?

A new life,

new body.




I-I'd live the living shit out of it.

Then what?


Guess I'd die again?


And then what?



Speak up, I can't hear you.



No, he couldn't have.

That's not possible.

Uh... I-I don't know.

Wha... [SIGHS]

Look, what do we do?


like, how...?

Think harder, okay?

Like, how do we...?


No, there's got to be a different way.

Because they'll hear me.

Look, I'm not embarrassed, I...

Yes, I want you to be able
to get out, I-I just...

I don't want to be out

Living life.

Like, the boring stuff,
that was not our choice.

We never had a choice.

And for the time being,

we're gonna have to
learn to exist like this.

What is it? What?

Uh, it's nothing, uh...

MELANIE: But Oliver had a dream.

He wanted to build a
home for people like him.

You know, with abilities.

And, uh, I didn't have
a dream, so I said sure.


And we built Summerland.

FAROUK: You and I.

- We are gods.
- His dream became my dream.

What did John Lennon say?

- Bigger than Jesus.
- so busy keeping his dream alive

and trying to get him back that I...

never got around to
having a dream of my own.

And now I'm older,

and, uh, it's over.

I don't get a second chance.

I was wrong, son.

When I told you that
your ability was a gift.

It's not.

It's an obstacle.

An obstacle to what?



You want my advice?



Take Syd and find a nice,
quiet hilltop somewhere,

settle down.

Look at the clouds.


But wh-what about...


What about what?

Saving the world?

The world will be just fine.

It always is.

I mean, things might
get worse for a while.

Maybe people will die.

Hmm, we all die eventually.

The real tragedy is forgetting to live.

Save yourself.

While you still can.





Thank God.



Uh... hey.

SYD: Over here.


Neat, huh?

Yeah, sure.


- Something wrong?
- Uh...

I'm just feeling a bit...

I'm just... I'm just
questioning myself, and-and...

I know I promised I wouldn't
tell, but if I tell you,

and you're the one...
It-it's complicated, okay?

What are you saying?

I know who took me in the orb.

You lied?


What's the difference?

Look, do you want to
know who took me, or not?

- Yes.
- It was you.

"Me," what?

In the orb.

Me, the cat?

No. Can you...?

Would-would you...

get... can you switch back to your body?

- 'Cause I...


It was you.

In the orb.

But not you, you.

Like you are now.

You from the future. Uh...

You told me to help
Farouk find his body.

You sure it was me?

I'm not crazy.

I didn't say that.

You didn't have to.


"When," what?

When in the future?


Next week?

A year from now? Longer?

I-I don't know. "The future."

- The...
- That...

Was I old?


- Y-You were...
- And I asked you to help Farouk.

Why would I do that?

I, uh, because of the plague?

Why didn't you say anything?

Because I promised you I-I wouldn't.

And to keep my promise...
You see, I had to...

I mean...

technically, telling you your
own secret probably is fine,

I-I think? I...

I don't know. I'm still a little shaky

on who I'm supposed to not tell.

The music box.

What about it?

It was mine as a kid.

Did you do that?

Me? No.

That was Farouk.

It was... I didn't like that.

Seeing it again.

He did that to me.

You told me to help him, not like him.



"Okay," what?

If I said that you should
do it, then you should do it.


Don't you trust me?

Her? I mean, you?

Yeah, but...

Like you said.

Reality's a choice.

How do we start?

We find the monk.
