Intergalactic (2021): Season 1, Episode 6 - Episode #1.6 - full transcript

Tensions run high in the aftermath of Emma's capture and Ash finds herself alone. Meanwhile, the band make a shocking discovery aboard the ship.

Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -
- Aah!
- What?

Your aggression node's triggered

by your chastity circ.

Chastity circ?

Skov, urgent message
for Commonworld security.

- Mum...
- Candy?


I've got Dr Emma Grieves.
You can come and get her.

Ash, where is Emma?

She's supposed
to be looking after you.

- It's OK.
- No!

Can you do it?
Can you get us out?

Aboard GCC Hemlock

securing ship.

Scanning for any
remaining convicts.

I'm sorry!

You deserve to suffer
for what you've done!

Die, slowly!

No, please!
Please don't kill me!

Thrown out into space
until you freeze

shatter into
a million fucking pieces

and it still wouldn't be...


Twenty seconds to door release.


- Come on!
- Keypad malfunction.

- Candy!
- Decompressing airlock.

Ten seconds to door release.

Keypad malfunction.

5, 4, 3, 2...

Door release. Cancelled.



All crew to the bridge.

All crew to the bridge.

I didn't see what...
what happened.

He must have passed out,
blood loss from the bullet.

It must have hit his head
or summat.

Let me go. I want to go!

No. You stay with me.

Get that pirate out of here.
It's the last thing she needs.

Are you OK?

I want to sleep with you.

That would be... What,
what about your hair thing?

It's... it's nothing.

Just a bit of biotech.
I can snip it out.

Unless you don't want
to be with me?

No, I... I do.

I... I really do.

But just...

maybe we should see
to Echo first.

We nearly died in Skov

and this could end
at any moment

and I don't want to die
without, you know...

What about your mum?

Don't worry about Mumma.

I've got a plan.

Verona, I know it's...

I know it's hard for you
to believe, but I never meant...

Stop saying that.

Of course you meant it.

You called the Commonworld

and you told them
where we were.

Then what, you thought you
could control the consequences?

Just tell me what to do.

Do you want me
to plot a new course?

- Pilot us out of here?
- Pilot us?

To where?

We'll work out
Emma's coordinates

and find a way to Arcadia...

before the Commonworld
finds us.

OK, there you go.
Give me your arm.


Let me have a see. Shh, shh.

There you go. Shh, shh, shh.

Keep still, Candy!

Candy! Keep still.

I'm trying to help you.

Alright. Keep still, child!

Just let me numb the pain!

Are you gonna watch
or are you gonna fucking help!

Come on.

Come on! Candy...

The operation on Skov
was an outstanding success.

Our priority was to retrieve
Emma Grieves

which we have done.

At the expense of my daughter.

That is an emotional

She was left on Skov


She will be fine.

Her cover wasn't blown

and we have Black Ops
aboard the ship.

Sir, ma'am.

Transit ship's ready to board.

Arrival Kelp, 0600 hours.

Rebecca, you seem
unable to understand

the significance
of what we are about to do.

Dr Grieves...

extract everything we need.

You're right.

I'm sorry.
I'm ready to come with you.


Ah, there we go.

Just hold tight, mate.

I've nearly got it.

There! Ah!


What the hell?

It's alright, mate.
It's alright, it's alright.

You had a bit of a turn
on the bridge.

You passed out
and hit your head.

It's alright.
Just try staying down, yeah?

Twenty minutes?

I just need to get
a few things ready.


You're alright, mate. Listen...

She wants to have sex with me.

Oh... And you?

I just don't know if I'm ready.

I don't know
if it's what I want.

Maybe I should tell her.

Do you reckon you might be
overthinking this one, mate?

I like her.

I really like her.

Yeah, and she likes you.

That's why she wants
to have sex with you.

Yeah, but it's not just
about the sex, is it?

We're stuck here.

This place is weird enough
without rushing into anything.

Drew, it really is
up to you, mate.

But I think you'd be a fool
to turn her down.

Are you putting on aftershave?

How did it feel?


Tell me.

How does it feel knowing
every time she looks at you

all she sees is the woman
who killed her mum?

All I wanna do
is make things better.


Can beg all you want, snitch...'re on borrowed time.

Nowhere to hide on this ship.

Wherever you go...

I'll hunt you down.

That's the thing with death...

Can look over
your shoulder all you want.

Don't always see it coming.



Didn't realise
you were trying to...


Screw you.

♪ Uh, oh, many, many,

I'm not having it.
No monsters on my ship.

I feel that.

If you're hunting something,
would you just let me help!

I'm a good shot.

- Tula?
- One job...

You stay here
and look after Candy.

Don't talk to her.

And don't let her kill herself!

Genevieve, it's Mumma.

You hear me?

Where are you?

I need you.

There's some fucking creature
on board

so keep your eyes peeled,
fingers on triggers.

What the hell?

Yeah, I told you.

What the fuck was he doing here?


What did this?

An animal?

No idea.

But I am gonna find out.

Otherwise the end's
gonna be fucking nigh...

for all of us.


Where is everyone?

There's an intruder.

An animal
or something like that.

We need to stay here.

Stay safe.

I don't want to stay safe.

I want this all to end.

- Just don't...
- No!

I... I just want you to know
that I'm so sorry

for what happened to your mum.

I really thought
I was doing the right thing...

and then I saw my dad.

I, I, I!

You stole something from me
that I can never get back!

My mum,
she was going to fix me...

and you...

you... you stole it.

What did I steal from you?

♪ I will smile and say... ♪



It's Genevieve!

I'm in the pod!


Drew, stop!

Get off her!

Stop! No!

Don't hurt him! Don't hurt him!

What's wrong with him?

It was him!

The screw attacked you!

I'll kill him!

Tula, you can't.
You can't shoot him.

One reason?

Because it's Drew.

He doesn't randomly attack
people. He's pathetic, alright?

He's scared of his own shadow.

She's right.

It's not his fault, Mumma.
He must be sick.

It's there, look.

What the hell is that?

I don't know,
but he's got it too.


What are you lot looking at?

Nothing wrong with me, I'm fine.

- Oh!
- Uh!

Now, this is not random.
This is some viral shit or...

What are you doing?

What do you think I'm doing?
I'm calling the doctor.


Come on, get up.

- What?
- Come on, we need you.

Ah, I don't know what
I'm looking for. I can't help.

It's years since I went
to med school.

I never practised.

I just want to sleep...

No! No, you can't go.

Listen, there is something
on this ship making us sick

and dangerous.

You are the only one
who can help.

Dirty bullet?

Oh, those fucking bastards.

No, I don't think so.

The Commonworld has
a moratorium on bioweapons.

Yeah! Yeah, I know they do.

Still, what better way to
convince the Earth's population

that homogalactus
are a bunch of ungrateful

homicidal maniacs, hmm?
Dirty bullet?

Film 'em going mad.

It gives you every excuse to
rape and pillage their planets.

You know,
there does come a time, Harper

when naivety
is no longer an excuse.

Yeah, alright, mate.
Give her a break, yeah?

I don't think it's a virus.

I think it's a parasite.

A parasite that...

works its way into the brain.

What, causes psychosis?

He didn't go mad.

How do we know?
There was no one on the bridge.

What about the screw?

He got splashed...

by Echo's blood,
taking out the bullet.

Parasites move.



Once a parasite has passed on
to a new host

it appears like the patient
is recovering, but it...

it's too late,
the damage is done.

It's... it's organ failure.
I'm sorry.

But, wait...

if Drew's no longer raging...

It means someone else
is the host.

No, if we shoot her,
what happens to the parasite?

What if it just jumps
to another person?

The fuck you asking me?
Can't see it, can't shoot it!

What have I done?

I'm a monster!

We're all monsters.

I can't even remember
how many people I've killed.

Let's do something, snitch!

Otherwise, she's going
to switch off life support

hit comms and bring
the Commonworld straight to us

if they're not on their way

Open the door.

It's fine, I've got her.

Oh, dear.


saves me a job.

How is Ash?

At least she's safer now
she's away from you.

Harper's blood result...

tested positive.

I'll tie her up.


Tie her up.

Fucking parasite.

Get the fuck away.

You're right.

The parasite's not gonna stop.

It's just gonna keep on moving
until it kills us all.

I'm gonna take it
out of the airlock with me.

At least that way,
some of us will survive.

So, what are you waiting for?

One of us to try and stop you?


Harper's the host.

She's going to take the parasite
out of the airlock with her.

No. No, you can't
let her do that.

Look, I know how you must
feel about Ash, but this... Oh!

This is so fucked up.

I'm, uh...

I'm scared, me.

What happened...

it wasn't your fault.

You didn't mean to do it.

Doesn't matter if I meant it.

I'm still responsible
for taking someone's life

even if he was Commonworld.

Maybe this is...

some kind of justice.

Airlock activated.

Twenty seconds to door release.


- Ash, stop!
- Door release. Cancel.

You're not dying.

You're the cure.

It seems
the Commonworld elite...

must be immune to dirty bullets.

You must have been
vaccinated as a child.

I can use the antibodies
in your blood

to cure everybody else.

You need to keep still.

You're good at this.

It's all I ever wanted
to be...

is top of the class.

I'm sorry.

I'm so sorry.

I don't want your sympathy...

your apologies.

You'll have to live with
the fact that

I will never forgive you...

for what you've done.

What does Ash know?
What have you told her?

About what?

About Yann, the ARC, about me.

She doesn't know
everything, yet.

She will.

She's learning.

The further she gets from you

the closer she gets
to the truth...

for herself...

the Commonworld...

just like Yann.

He was about to save me.

He travelled the galaxies
to rescue me.

Took him long enough.

Seventeen years.

He was hardly in a hurry.

What do you think
he's been doing all this time?

Building a resistance
which will destroy you

and everything you stand for.

And who do you think's
been keeping his bed warm

as he's saving the universe?

That's the thing with Yann.

Always the hero of his own story
and women

something he uses
and tosses aside

when he gets
what he wants from us.

That's your truth, not mine.


Maybe it's lucky that
this is where it ends for you...

and then you can pretend
to yourself

that you're different...

The special one.



how did you know
that Harper was the cure?

It was all there
in the evidence.

Right, snitch.

Now you've done
all your vampire shit

let's finish what we started!

No, no, no, no.
Let her go. Let her go.

You forget...

I'm not forgetting anything.

There's no more death.

And no more drugs.

I mean it, all of this,
everything from the Phoenix

anything you can find,
I don't want...

any of it anywhere near me.

Oh, yeah?

You really think
a habit like yours

you can just kick it
on your own?

I have to...

and you have to let me.

You wanna get clean?

Get clean!

Carpe fucking diem, bitch!

Well, I'm gonna have a shower

because blood's never sexy

and then, I think...

I might follow Tula's advice.

Maybe you should too.

I don't wanna have sex with you.

- Oh.
- Not... not today.

Well, not for a while, actually.

I know you're not...

you know, experienced.

I've been with girls...

but never like this.

I've never felt the way
that I feel about you.

And I don't want to ruin this
by rushing it.

It's OK, if you want to wait

if that's what's good for you.

I think it's what's good for us.

Why are you still
so angry with me?

Why do you think?

I don't know.

But you're even angrier than
Candy, and she has every right.

There. That's why.

Don't worry...

that's over.


What if the ship escapes us?

Look, we've got comms.

Suspect in transit to Kelp.

That's where they've taken Emma.

Where's Candy?

Don't worry about her.

Candy's fine.

Get on with it, snitch!

Find a witch, find a way.
