Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013–…): Season 1, Episode 13 - T.R.A.C.K.S. - full transcript

The team tries to confiscate an important device on a train, but when one agent takes a very risky move that backfires, the entire team is affected.

Previously on Marvel's
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D...

And an 084 is?

An object of unknown origin.

Skye's the 084?

And who do you work for, Raina?
The Clairvoyant?

The Clairvoyant gives us guidance.

He has you
building super-soldiers.

Mike's a good guy.



COULSON". Ian Quinn.
You've got to be kidding.

This is Quinn's MO. He finds
young talent, and he takes advantage.

We're on to you.

Thank you, Agent Coulson.
I have a message for you.

The Clairvoyant told me to say, "Hello."

- Ian Quinn.
- You found him?

No. But we think we know how we can.

Skye tracked down an invoice
from one of his shell companies.

He made a big purchase recently.

$10 million big.

- Any idea what it is?
- No clue.

But it was designed and built
by Cybertek, Inc.

A small firm that deals in advanced
technology and research.

Which is where this gets interesting.

They've hired a private security outfit
to transport the purchase.

Former military. Ex-mercs.

A lot of muscle to move one package.

And they know S.H.I.E.L.D's
got eyes on Quinn.

Which is why
they're transporting it old-school.

On a train
through the Italian countryside.

From Verona to Zagreb.
Very rural, very isolated.

And you think Quinn's on that train?

No, but I believe they're delivering
the item to Quinn himself.

We got our Intel from Italian authorities

who've been monitoring the situation.

And they don't mind us
taking over the op?

I asked very nicely.

You're not asking me at all,
Agent Coulson.

You're telling me and my team
to step aside.

To hand over our investigation
to S.H.I.E.L.D.

Try to think of it less as a hand over
and more as a hand off.

You've done your part.
Now we'll do ours.

If everything goes as planned,

Cybertek's security team
won't even know we were on the train.

So we're going in undercover.

I hate undercover.

May and Ward,
you're front and center.

Once we locate the package,
you'll tag it with a tracker.

Skye and Fitz,
you'll be running communications.

After the package is tagged,
we'll follow it to Quinn.

Once we capture Quinn,

we'll be one step closer
to The Clairvoyant.

And what about the two of us, sir?

Here, let me get that.

Oh, thanks, Dad.

Who looks far
too young to have a daughter my age.

That looks cozy.

Once I've located the package,

I'll let you know
where to place the tracker.

Seem like things are getting personal?

- I'm talking about our operations.
- Ah.

Look, I know Coulson
was put through hell, but...

He hasn't been the same since.

I don't know what he said to Skye,
but she's different.

How so?

Driven. Focused.

She was holed up for days
trying to track down Quinn.

It feels like Coulson's
got her on a Warpath.

- It seems personal.
- It is personal.

The Clairvoyant had him tortured.

Quinn's the only person we know
who's connected to all this.

We both know personal urges

can adversely affect tactical decisions.

Hmm, that's why I don't have any.
You should do the same.


You think Coulson'll take that excuse
if he finds out about us?

Took it okay when I told him.

Wait. You told him?


You nervous?

Just ready for this all to be over.
Ready to get Quinn.

Me, too.

So are we British or American?

- Does that matter?
- Well, we're traveling together.

We should at least be
from the same country.

How's your Scottish accent?

I don't know.

You tell me how great it is, laddie.

American then. That's a better idea.

Oh! That was really good.

I used to watch a lot of
American TV growing up.

Some of it's quite good.
Lots of nice teeth.

Oh, here we go. Follow my lead.

Excuse me. Do you speak English?

Of course. How may I be of service?

Can you recommend a restaurant
in downtown Zagreb?

Someplace affordable.
With big portions.

You are looking
for something romantic?

Yes, please.


We are celebrating
our six-month anniversary

with a whirlwind trip all over Europe.

Well technically,
we met six months ago,

but he didn't ask me out till last month.

So our official one-month anniversary

- isn't until next Saturday.
- Sunday. Saturday.

I think he found me intimidating.

Young love, so confusing.

IS it?

You got a little flustered back there.

What, when you kissed me
on the cheek like my grandmother?

Good going.
Really selling our relationship there.

I have a device
that could've done those things.

- Broken the lock and all that.
- What?

Why wouldn't you tell me that?

I'm always the gadget guy.

Maybe sometimes I wanna
do things with my bare hands.

You make the gadgets with your hands.

Just allow me these rare moments
of self-pity, okay?

You're the least supportive
pretend girlfriend I've ever had.

Comms are live.
Coulson? Simmons? You in position?

Yes. Just waiting on May's signal.

So, remember. Our target is Carlo...

Mancini. The head of security.
I know. I memorized his face.

I memorized everything.

What are you doing?

Oh, I'm getting into character.

My undercover persona

harbors residual resentment
to her absent American father.

Blames him for not being there
when her mum died.

So I apologize in advance
if I come off a little cold.

You think
all that backstory's necessary?

Past events, like that
unfortunate incident at The Hub,

have shown me that I'm not good
at improvisation.

However, I excel at preparation.

He's headed your way.

You're on.

All Mum ever wanted was your love.
To be with you.

On our two-story Victorian home
in the Cotswolds.

But could you even give her a moment?

What with your banking job
requiring you

to travel to the States

from Tuesday to Saturday
every other week? No!

I'm terribly sorry about your loss, dear.

As for you.
Now is your chance to do better.

Why don't you see that you take it!

Thank you, sir.

Let's go.

He's right.
You never had any time for her.

But you made time for your work.
And your prostitutes!

Oh, God!

Oh, no! Mum!

Terribly sorry.

Prostitutes? Plural?

Ma)', coming your way.

Copy that.

Following the target to the package.

Great. We see what you see.

All right, May, Cybertek cases

are usually lined with tungsten
polymer to prevent scanning.

It should appear black on your infrared.


Eyes on the package,
fourth seat from the back.

As we round the bend,

The passengers on the north side
of the train can take in the views

of the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo.
Isn't it a wonder?

Look at that.

I haven't seen anything so beautiful

since our family's scuba diving trip

to the island of Koh Tao
in southeastern Thailand.

Okay, Simmons, I appreciate
all your preparation, but...

Don't you want to know
which marine life we encountered?

Ward, are you in position?

My comms are down.
Are yours working?

Fitz? Skye?

Somethings wrong. Sit tight.

I'm gonna go make sure
we don't lose that package.

- Ward!
- We've been made!

Grenade! Coulson, we gotta jump!

As we round the bend,

the passengers on the north side
of the train can take in the views

of the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo.
Isn't it a wonder?

May. Got the tracker.

Headed to the dining car now
to tag the package.

May? May?

Cybertek knew we were here.

Anyone copy?

Damn it.

We've been made. Comms are down.
Where's Coulson?

He went to the dining car
to find the package.

You've been hurt. Let me take a look.

Not now. Go to the luggage car.

Lock yourself in with Fitz and Skye.

Don't come out until I get you.
I'm going to get Coulson.

- Ward!
- We've been made!

Grenade! Coulson, we gotta jump!

- The train. It just...
- Yep.

Vanished. Which, I might add,

not easy.

I told Simmons I'd come back for them.

May's there. They'll be okay.

No, she's not.

Is your phone working?

No. Cybertek must've taken out
our electronics.

Not a grenade exactly.

Might be some kind
of cloaking mechanism.

Maybe it created some kind of portal.
Jumped the train there.

Oh, let's hope not.
I can't deal with Asgard today.

Cybertek knew we were coming.


Could've been The Clairvoyant.

We've got to get back to the plane.
Come on.

Keys might be in it.

It's the country. People are
very trusting in the country.

It's running.

Yeah, it's been hotwired.

- This is...
- Suspicious?

I was gonna say fortuitous.
Let's get out of here.

Signore Russo.
What happened?

Agent Coulson. Thank God.
I've been trying to reach you.

Cybertek knew.
They knew we were at the station.

They knew we were on the train, too.

Most of my team is unaccounted for.

Most of my men are dead.
Where are you now?

On our plane,
we'll send you the coordinates.

And Russo. Do you have any idea
what happened to the train?

- What do you mean?
- It vanished.

With our team still on it.

Okay. We'll look into that.

I'm on my way to you now,

maybe together we can
find some answers, yes?

- What now?
- I'll call H.Q. You take this.

We need to figure out
what the hell happened to that train.

Holotable, on.

Holotable, activate.





S.H.I.E.L.D. pulled satellite images.

- And?
- Train's gone.

They're checking alternate routes.

If it's somewhere on Earth, we'll find it.

It's pretty tricky, right?

I couldn't even find the "on" button.

Can you zoom in?

I think Fitz-Simmons do
something more like...


Let's just upload the specs to H.Q.

- Good idea.
- Yeah.

Oh, uh. Sir? This probably isn't
the best time, but what May told you...

I would have preferred it stay
between me and her.

Well, "it" is happening on my bus.

Amongst members of my team.

No, we've never done...

It's never happened on the bus, sir.

You wanna do this now?

Okay, what you're doing
is against protocol

so, if you endanger an operation,
or if anyone gets hurt,

I'll reassign you to Barrow, Alaska.

And you'll spend the rest of your years

pulling the night shift
guarding Blonsky's cryo-cell.

Am I clear?

I'll take that as a yes.

And if it's really just sex, Ward,

you should get more comfortable
using the word.

Agent Coulson. It's gonna be all right.

We found your people. The train, it's...

Wheels up in five.

As we round the bend,

the passengers on the north side
of the train can take in the views

of the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo.
Isn't it a wonder?

Ward, you're up.


Something's wrong.
Cybertek's leaving the dining car.

Ward? Coulson...

Fitz? Skye? Can anyone read me?

I've gotta get you guys somewhere safe.

We've been looking for you, Agent May.

Get your bearings, sweetheart.
Get your bearings. There you go.

There you go.

I realize you're confused.

But I'm here to help. You see,

I make sure Cybertek products
move across Italy without incident,

they make sure I'm well taken care of.

And they'll take care of you, too.

All you have to do

is tell me where Agent Coulson
and Ward are. That's it.

Why are you smiling?

You called me sweetheart.

Fine. Have it your way.

Just remember, your boss asked
to be a part of this op.

I warned him against it.

So if you're looking for someone
to blame, look to him.

That's just what I needed.


And if it's really just sex, Ward,

you should get more comfortable
using the word.

Agent Coulson. It's gonna be all right.

We found your people.

The train, it's...

Wheel's up in five.

You okay? You were on the train
when it disappeared.

May. Russo was...
Explain yourself, please.

The train didn't disappear.
Russo sold us out.

Get the plane ready. I need a shower.

You're hurt. Let me stitch you up.

I said get the plane ready.

Let me help.

You know,

we have this stuff for a reason.

S.H.I.E.L.D. found the train.

Turns out it switched tracks
shortly after we got off.

The grenade must've released
some kind of toxin,

made us believe no time had passed.

Yeah, I saw you guys
frozen on the field.

You looked ridiculous.

It wasn't supposed to be a combat op.

They'll be fine.
They can handle themselves.

I got it. Gently.


Thank you.

Did he get you anywhere else?

We need to re-route the plane.

Just got word from S.H.I.E.L.D

that the train stopped suddenly
in the Italian countryside.

What? Why?

We'll find out soon. I'll set
the coordinates. Touchdown in 10.

- I'll come help.
- I got it.

Got parked here 15 minutes ago.

Agents on the ground
have no idea why.

Any sign of Fitz-Simmons and Skye?


Everyone, get down!

Simmons! Stop!

Where are Fitz and Skye?

As we round the bend, the passengers
on the north side of the train...

I wish we had more time
to take in the scenery.

Three peaks of Lavaredo.
They're supposed to be stunning.

Any chance what's in there
could be an 084?

This? No. We may not know what it is,

but we do know
that it came from Cybertek.

Right. Unknown origin.

The one we found in Peru
was a machine,

- but they don't always have to be, right?
- No.

No, I've read about all kinds.

Weapons, spacecraft, energy sources.

I suppose the only thing
they really do have in common

is that they're dangerous.


Hey, whatever this package turns
out to be, we'll deal with it.

Like we always do.

We've faced worse
and made it through.


have you ever heard
of an 084 being a person?


Although I suppose it's possible.

Hate to meet the guy.


May's goggles are offline.
When did that happen?

May, do you copy?

All comms and phones are dead.

Someone's using some sort
of electronic scrambler.

Cybertek knows we're here.

I have to warn our team.

Fitz! Get down.

We've been made!

Oh, bloody hell!



Oh, my God.

She's okay.

Okay, hold her up.

There we go.

I think this is some form of dendrotoxin.

The same stuff that's
in the Night-Night gun?

Yeah, but it's clearly evolved.
I think they made it airborne.

Is that why their eyes are open?

I suppose if they're in
some sort of black sleep,

that would make sense.

We gotta get out of here.

Find the others and figure out
what to do next.

Yeah, help me move Simmons first.

Can't just leave her like this.

Look at her little face.
She'd be so embarrassed.

We should leave her with something
to protect herself. Just in case.

Yeah. I have a spare.

What about him?

That's for Simmons.

Train stopped.

I know. And I looked everywhere.
May, Ward, and Coulson are gone.

What about Cybertek?

They have the package, Fitz.

What do we do?
We're the only ones left.

Do you have an extra tracker?

Of course.

Then we follow them.


Coulson was right.
Cybertek led us to Quinn.

Activate the tracker.
Let them know we're here.

You want to go in?

We can't let Quinn get away again.

If Coulson were here,
he wouldn't let that happen.

He wouldn't want us to let that happen.

You're right.

Let's do it.

Can you disable their cars?

With my bare hands.

Take this.

- You'll need it out here.
- Just take it.

Be careful, okay?

You too.


Find Mr. Quinn.
Tell him his purchase is downstairs.

- Mike?
- MANI Hello.

Skye. The Clairvoyant
told me to expect you.

Signore Quinn,

this is the same gun
as the specs you gave us.

You guys have been looking at us.
Well, we've been looking at you.

And we found a handful of some
particularly interesting things.


Oh, God.

You're alive.

That's right.
You two know each other. Hey.

Do you know who I am?

And you have your orders?

Good. Because I purchased something

that's gonna help you complete them.

Orders? Mike.

What is happening here?


Stand, please.


Mancini, thank you.

You will be receiving
your payment shortly.

That is the best money can buy,
my friend.

Every piece of technology in you
is top of the line.

I just wonder if I'm getting
my money's worth.

I know you get your orders
from The Clairvoyant.

So that means you're not allowed
to hurt me, right?


What if I tried to hurt you?

Would you stop me?

No. I would not.

Mike, listen.

I don't know what they're doing to you,

but we have to get out of here. Now.

And if I wanted you to hurt her?

You know, to kill her,

Will you?

I mean, what would hurt
Agent Coulson more

than to lose his pet project?

Those aren't my orders.

She's not who I'm supposed to kill.

Wait. Wait. Wait!

What the hell did you do to him?

I'm sorry.

I have my orders, too.


- Where's Quinn?
- Where's our money?

There is no money. You failed.

It looks like it's working to me.

Apparently, there's been
a misunderstanding.

We delivered the package as promised.

If we can just speak to Mr. Quinn...

The Clairvoyant isn't happy.

You led S.H.I.E.L.D. right to us.

Let her go.


Where's Skye?

She didn't want to let Quinn get away.

Help. Help. Help-

Driver's not answering.

Oh, Coulson's team finally got here.

Where's Skye?

You know,
Agent Coulson, it's dangerous

to keep sending her in
like that, all alone.

When she means so much to you.

Search the house. Find her! Now!

Oh... No.

Oh, no. Oh, God.
Simmons! Get down here!

Oh, God. Hang on.

Just hang on, okay?

Oh, God.

She's been shot.

Keep her upright.

I got no pulse.

She's lost too much blood.

Put her in there.

- Do you even know what this thing is?
- It's a hyperbaric chamber.

And I said, put her in there. Now.

- Okay.
- Let's go.

All right. Gentle.

I need to get
her temperature down, Fitz.

Yeah, okay, I got it.

- Temperature's dropping.
- Pressure's stabilizing.

Is it working?

Is it working?

For now.

Her core temperature's hovering
around 44 degrees Fahrenheit.

If we don't bring her back up
to temp in the next few hours,

she could sustain
permanent brain damage.

We need to get her
to a medical facility, and fast.

Until then, I'll do everything I can
to keep her alive.

Excuse me.

It's not your fault.

She never should've gone
in there alone.

Blaming yourself won't help her.

I'm not blaming myself.
