Cloak & Dagger (2018–…): Season 2, Episode 3 - Shadow Selves - full transcript

Tandy and Tyrone try to find out what has happened to a group of young girls who have gone missing; Mina discovers a possible side effect to the big Roxon leak.

TANDY: Previously on Cloak and Dagger...

Eight years ago, on the
rig that stole our dads,

the entire crew went crazy.

- Your dad called them "Terrors."

- Move.
- You walk out that door

without permission,
and there's nothing that I can do...

I said move!

- I like making girlfriend pancakes.

I ended up in the back

of an ambulance with this-this girl.

I think she was getting kidnapped.

TYRONE: I don't know how
to take someone with me.

To share information,

TANDY: That's more than a dozen girls.

Someone has to be looking for them.

Hey, buddy.

Subject 11 has been
drinking an aqueous solution

with a 6.5% Roxxon chemical agent,

recovery sample number 446,

taken from the north shore
of Lake Pontchartrain,

24 hours after the mass exposure.

Don't worry, these cosmetics
were tested on humans.

- [quietly] 'Kay...
- [Subject 11 squeaks]

The maze is similar to one
Subject 11 already knows,

and has been working on
the last three months,

but has been modified to test its
resilience in the face of adversity.

So, we are trying to
frustrate it, basically.

Very much like I am frustrated.

Because if this experiment
doesn't yield something soon,

I am gonna run out of grant money,

then we will never know
what happened that night.

MINA: And I'm gonna
have to get a day job.

Maybe in a bakery.

One coffee, Sarge.

It didn't seem like that big a deal.

Yeah, well... that cop?

That O'Reilly has a

He's in the wind.

I'm the one who's going to
find those missing girls.

What do you say, Tandy?
You wanna keep on?

It was you who killed all those
people in the club, wasn't it?

Well, duh.

Last chance, Tandy.

- Are you okay?

But it's not easy doing it so fast.

With two people. [steadies breathing]

Ah, just-just give me a minute.

Okay, then, your turn.

How is there two of you?

And then, this other you...

[stammering] she slit this guy's
throat open with her own hands!

- She's crazy strong and crazy homicidal!
- She's not me!

TANDY: She's got your face,
and she's got your badge.

She pointed a gun at us.
S-She killed this guy in the ambulance.

- And all the people at the club...
- TYRONE: Tandy, Tandy!

Give her a minute, too, okay?

Okay, I'm-I'm sorry.

I'm sorry, she just...

I mean, how did this happen?

- Was there some sort of lighting strike?
- Tandy!

Look, I don't think
she knows what happened.

Okay, then who does?

MINA: I had no idea a
human split occurred.

- This is fascinating.
- Yeah, or crazy as all get-out.

I've been trying to figure out

what happened with the Terrors,

isolate the cause.

Trying to unpack my own trauma
from that night.

Last time we spoke, you said
you hadn't gotten anywhere.

That was before lucky number 11.

What happened with number 11?

MINA: So, like all the other candidates,

it was exposed to the chemical
agent from my Roxxon valve,

but the protocols of
the experiment changed

when we had a power surge.

A moment of trauma stimulated

a fear agent and
produced full-on division.

BRIGID: So, when I went into
the water after I was shot,

I divided into two?

Yup, so you and your
twin have the same DNA,

the same fingerprints,

even the same memories, up
until the point of the split.

But very distinct personalities.

Yeah, you said it.

So I conducted brain scans on the pairs.

[keyboard key clacks]

In the dociles,
there's almost no activity

in the anger and rage center
of the cerebral cortex.

But in the aggressives, there's
only activity in the rage center.

It's as if inside their
head, there's nothing but

chaos and anger, and...


Okay, so, that was number 11.

What happened to all the others?

So, we're on pair 22 now.

I was finally able to get some funding

and we've been able to replicate
the results several times over.

TANDY: How come there's no 17A, 22A,

- and no 13B?
- MINA: Um..., the aggressive mouse...

It killed the docile one.

That happen a lot?

It's almost like they decided
that it was wrong

for there to be more than one.

DALE: Two weeks in advance.

Rent's due at the crack
of Monday... cash only.

Although, you could

build up a little credit with me...

if you like.


What's your name?



you hitting on me... Dale?

- No.
- [slams book shut] Good call.

[keys jingle]

[keys jingle]

BRIGID: I haven't felt whole
since the night I was shot, but...

I thought it was in my head, PTSD.

But shit, she really wants to kill me.

TYRONE: Don't worry.

I'll take you somewhere safe,

and Tandy and I will go after her.

TANDY: [stammering] No, no.

No, Brigid's the only
one that can help us.

I can't even shoot straight
anymore. I'm useless.

TANDY: You heard Mina...

you're the same person.

Same memories.

If anybody knows where the
other Brigid is going, it's you.

So, if you were her...

where would you go?

What kind of place is this?


Sort of a hotel for
the broke, or forgotten.

TANDY: Why here?

No windows on front.

Rear access is shoddy.

From the fourth and
fifth floors, you can

access another rooftop, if necessary.

I used to walk past here all the
time from Fuchs's place and think,

"If I ever got in trouble,
this is where I'd hide."

TANDY: Well, let's find out if you did.

Ty was a friend.

At least, he was to me.

She was tracking the girls.

Figuring out how they were being moved.

That there was gonna
be another job tonight.

But, he didn't know where.

I don't know.

Yes, you do. That's why we're here.

When I was undercover,

I kept case notes on playing cards.

I learned it from this
reporter in New York.

So, she must've learned the same thing.

But the order didn't make sense,

until I remembered this old
card trick my dad taught me:

the Four Kingdoms.

To find the girls, she
started with the drugs.

When you're dealing
with any volume of girls,

drugs are the way to ensure
all of them are pliant.

That's what led her to
the gangland meeting.

TANDY: And here's where
we found the ambulances.

she'd go is Pier 81.
