Intergalactic (2021): Season 1, Episode 7 - Episode #1.7 - full transcript

Opinions are divided as Ash suggests a risky rescue mission on Emma's behalf. A poker game could provide better odds.

Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -
The queen's only as strong
as her colony.

She may be weakened.

No more drugs.

You think a habit like yours

you can kick it on your own?

I have to...

and you have to let me.

What have I done?

I'm a monster!

The operation
was an outstanding success.

Our priority was to retrieve
Emma Grieves

which we have done.

Do you really think if I had
the coordinates to Arcadia

I'd give them to you?

Snitch, this is a waste of time.

No, this is it.

We just need to work out
how to get on there.

I dunno.

Are we sure
that's where Emma is?

Jets have been going
in and out all day

that's more than just a rig.

Infiltrating a Commonworld base
in the middle of the sea...

Piece of piss.

It's nuts.

Getting Emma back is the only
way you're gonna get to Arcadia.

So, I may have found us
another way to Arcadia.


What you on about?

There's a game, tonight.

Very hush-hush. One big prize.


100% legit.

Well, there we are.
Problem solved.

The witch can look after

Seventeen years

I've spent
perfecting this machine.

Many of my colleagues
said it was hopeless.

That we'd never even begin
to understand her ability

let alone replicate it.

But I believed.

Will it work?


In a matter of hours, we'll know
the location of Arcadia.

I think that's him.

Name's Ludo Merrick.

Apparently he's ex-ARC.
Wanted by both sides.

You're all hypocrites.

Is that right?


I know I screwed up.

But we could rescue Emma.

It's the right thing.

The right thing?

Who the fuck do you think
you're talking to here?

Fine. I'll do it on my own.

Yeah, I guess
we could take a boat.

It's not like they'll see us
coming from 20 miles away.


Maintenance train
straight to the base.

Reckon we can hitch a ride.

- Thanks.
- Yeah, alright.

Come the fuck on.

I... I really am
doing so much better.

You told us not to.

I know, I know,
I know, Genevieve

sweet, lovely Genevieve.


open the door.

Come here.


Is everything alright?

Look, I just... I, um...

I... I just... I...

I... I need something

just... just to take
the edge off.

Candy, you can do this.

You can do this for your mum.

Argh! Ugh!

Come on, we're not helping.


You know this place, Kelp...

it used to be a holiday planet.

You know, fairgrounds,
arcades and that.

And I was thinking maybe
we could go and explore.

Just me and you.

Like a date?

Yeah. Like a date.

Alls you've gotta do
is just follow it.

Wow, Genevieve!

You sure you've never
done this before?

Shit, you're actually amazing!

Come on then.

♪ Oh, when you come home ♪

♪ Do you care to see me ♪

♪ Things ain't the way they used
to be, baby but ♪

♪ I can't believe that you're
only teasin' ♪

Where the hell are you?


- Mumma?
- Genevieve...

I'm sorry, I'm just...

I need you at the hotel.

Meet me at the bar, now!

I have to go.

You going somewhere?
Your authorisation number?


Well, it's not enough!

The fleet is mobilising for
the Arcadia offensive, ma'am.

Perhaps you'd like to clarify
with the Director.

Yes, very well. Dismissed.

What now?

What did they do to you?

It's OK, Mum. I'm fine.

What are you doing here?
How did you get away?

I saw Dad.

You knew.

He was right.

You lied to me.


Seventeen years, Mum.

Jesus, I thought he was dead!

I thought ARC killed him!

I was trying to protect you.

You let me believe he was
this big fucking war hero!

I had no choice!

You know what happens
to the families of traitors.


No, you... you took away
my choice.

My choice to know my own father!

He left us, Ash!

He left us.

He hasn't contacted you once,
Ash. Not once.

I never wanted you to know.

I never wanted you to feel
that kind of pain.

I wanted you to remember
a father that loved you.

Why did he leave us?

He chose ARC.

He chose her.


She filled his head with lies.

Is she here?

You didn't know I was here,
did you?

You came for her.

I've brought you a present.


You're going to need
your strength.

My power...

It frightens you.

It should.


Mum, Emma's not what you think.

She isn't a terrorist.

I've seen...

what the Commonworld do
to people in their way.

You sound just like him.

She poisoned him, Emma Grieves.

Made him doubt everything he...

everything we believed.

No more lies.

You deserve to know the truth.

All of it.

So, we need
to think about a buy-in

to get a seat at the table.
Could stake the Hemlock.

Oh, shut the fuck up, pirate.

Listen, I know my poker.

Even if I had the cash

I don't need to play no cards.

Just need this guy to spend some
quality time with my Genevieve.

Come on, Tula.

Maybe committing mass murder
could be a plan B for once, huh?

There it is.

Piss and powder break,
like fuckin' clockwork.

Right, get ready.

Maybe Echo's right.

You getting in
my daughter's head, pirate?

D'you know what?

I don't need any of you lot.

I make my own way.


Yes, Mumma.

Who the fuck are you?

What the fuck?

Give me the coordinates.

I'll make you, and it will hurt.

You'll kill me anyway...

you fucking monster!


I'm not feeling very well.

Candy? Candy?


- Candy? Candy? Can you hear me?
- Drew...

Just pull me up.

- Yeah, yeah.
- Go on.






I know you.

Well, sometimes it's like you
know a person, isn't it?

Like there's just this, uh,
undeniable connection.

I saw your mug shot.

You're on the run
with those escaped prisoners.

Uh, I dunno what
you're talking about, love.

Guess I just got
one of those faces.


I've got a proposition for you.

What are they doing?

She left us no choice, Ash.

This machine allows us to follow
Emma trans-dimensionally

as she locates planets
with New Aurum.

Planets like Arcadia.


No, this isn't right.

Listen to me.

New Aurum is running out.

Emma was given
this incredible gift

the power to save the world

and she threw it away.

She forced us to drain
every resource in this galaxy.

That blood is on her hands.

Earth must come first...

no matter what sacrifices
need to be made.

It's our home

it's our responsibility.

And I know you believe that too.

You're right.

It's our home.

We don't have a choice.

Oh, Ash...

I miss it.

I miss the way
things used to be.

Earth first.

Earth first.


Are you OK?

Listen, I... I fucked up
with Candy.

I don't want to be a monster.

You're not a monster.

I don't want to spend another
night washing blood off myself.

I just...
I just wanna be normal.

We can be.

Genevieve, where are you?

Where the hell have you been?

I'm sorry, Mumma.

He... he got away.

You're sorry?

What the fuck do I do
with "Sorry"?


How are we getting
those coordinates now?

I might be able
to help with that.

Thought you'd pissed off?

So here's how it is.

You've got a ship that could
take us to Arcadia. I don't.

However, I do have something
that you don't, Tula.

An in.

The croupier's looking
for passage to Arcadia

she's offered us
a seat at the game

no buy-in required.

Just a bit of good
old-fashioned cheating.

Talk to me.

The croupier's name's Mya.

You ever play poker?

What do you think?

She'll never let us be together.


When Mumma's at the poker game,
that's when we go.

We run.



That's my girl.


Get your fucking hands off me!

I'm not telling you anything,
you fucking pigs!

Get your hands off!


♪ It's getting cold
on this island ♪

♪ I'm sad alone ♪

♪ I'm so sad on my own ♪

♪ The truth is ♪

♪ We were much... ♪

Can I help you?

Uh, no, I was just...
I was just leaving.

♪ Or anyone like you ♪

♪ Oh! We said goodbye ♪

♪ With a smile on our faces ♪

♪ Now you're alone ♪

I don't see why I can't be
the one at the table.

Even with Mya feeding us aces,
you've gotta make it convincing.

My ship, my rules.

I'm just saying,
cards are my thing.

Well, now shutting up and doing
everything I say is your thing.

Ah, Miss Valentine!

Such an honour
to finally meet you.

Right this way, please.

Finally. This the last one?

Yes, Mr Merrick.
May I introduce Avery Valentine.

Thought you were a bloke.

Ah, sorry to, uh... disappoint.

Your credentials check out,
it's all the same to me.

Who's this, your date?


He's mute, actually.

Since birth.

Very sad.

Avery Valentine...

It is so lovely to meet you.

Two minutes.

I'm sorry.

What the fuck are you wearing?

Is this for them?

Please tell me
that all of this is for them.

I really am sorry, Verona.

Nah. Nah, nah, nah.
This is not you.

It's winter on Valdivian
right now.

You'll need something else
to wear.

Prison transport will come
and pick you up soon.

Just wear the coat...

and keep your head down.

There's nowhere to go.

And this little piggy...

ran all the way home.

You looking to score...

I don't have any money.

Don't worry. It's cool.

What line of work are you
in again, Avery, darling?

Oh, no. Don't tell me.

Arms dealer, wasn't it?

How's business?


I bet.

You know, you really remind me
of someone I know.

Of course,
my friend doesn't have

anything like your level
of business acumen.

What was the name
of that weapons manufacturer

you took over again?

We're not here
to talk business...

are we?

Maybe you and I
can sit down later, yeah?

I've got a deal going
I can cut you in on.

Well, that sounds
like fun, sweetheart.

But I really don't like sharing.

Mr Merrick, I'm afraid we have
an imposter amongst us.

- Fucking dead!
- Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Let's all just calm down, yeah?

Who the fuck are yous two?

Tula Quik.

- Mya, you vetted the players.
- No way.

- They faked their credentials.
- I don't give a shit.

Get the fuck out my game!

Tough luck, sweetheart.

Can't win 'em all.

- Get her out.
- What? No!

Get the fuck on with it!

You want your shit or not?

Come on.


Look, are you sure
we're really doing this?

We're really doing this.

What the fuck is this?

Tula, look. It's not what
it looks like, honestly!

Tula, we've all had a long day.
Let's just chill, yeah?

Drew and I...

we're going away together.

You touched my daughter?

You touched my daughter, screw?



- Argh!
- Tula!

- Tula...
- Let go!

- For fuck's sake!
- Tula, please!


I don't want to hurt you.

He's got into your head.

That's what men do, Genevieve.

I'm not you, Mumma.

All I ever did was protect you.

You make me do things...

I don't want to do.


I'm getting those fucking
coordinates tonight.

I'll stake this whole damn ship
if I have to.

But you should be there too.

You're my daughter.

Both of us.

If that's what you want.

What about ARC's
operations on the ground? Hmm?

You say you were taken
to a hospital on Skov?

Like I said, sir...

I... I was pretty out of it.

Well, she must have
told you something.

You must have seen something!
Who was she there to meet?

Sir, I... I don't know.
I'm sorry.

- But I can't...
- Sir...

My daughter has been
through a traumatic ordeal.

Perhaps we can take
a short break?

Of course.

Five minutes
till prison transport.

Get your boss.


You sneaky little bitch!

You're all
gonna let me back in...

and I'm gonna add a little bonus
for the winner.

What could you
possibly offer us?


Hold still.

This chip gives you
control of my daughter.

I ain't no arms dealer...

but you and I both know what
a weapon like this is worth.

I think we should play
some poker.

Sir, I've had a report that the
prisoner in custody has escaped.

Call your daughter. Now.

Ash, where are you?

Follow me.

Emma! Can you hear me?

Shit! They nearly have
the coordinates!

We need to switch it off now!

OK, I think I've found
the power source.


OK, not the power source.

Raise ten thousand.

Shit. I'm out.


Fifty thousand.



You've done it!


No, no!


And then there were two.

OK, OK...


Don't shoot!
I can't risk any damage in here.

All in.


So close.

So, so close.

Dr Grieves!

Sorry, darling.

Looks like you lose.


Enjoy Arcadia.

You're going to make me proud.

- Aren't you, Genevieve?
- Mumma!

Please! No...


- Take her to the ship.
- No! No.


Let me go! Mumma!

No, let me go! Mumma!


Drew, she bet me!

She bet me on a poker game!

You can't just take her.
You can't!

- I won't let you.
- Get back!

- I won't let you!
- Bless you, darling.

Love's young dream, is it?

Go on then.

Shoot me in the face.

You haven't got it in you,
have you?




What the fuck, Tula?

Over there.

Please evacuate now.

- Please evacuate now.
- Get in.

It's OK. It's OK, it's OK.

- Please evacuate now.
- Ash!


Ash, listen to me.

I will fix everything,
I promise.

Dad was right.

The Commonworld is broken.

I know you mean it when you say
you want to save the world.

But there are so many worlds
worth saving. Not just ours.

Please! Ash, you're all I have.

I'm sorry.

I love you, Mum.

Let's go.

You're finished, Harper!

Sir, I will bring
Emma Grieves back.

Your daughter is a traitor.

My daughter is dead.

Just like her father.

She will answer for her crimes.

As will you.


Please, I can...
