Orphan Black (2013–2017): Season 3, Episode 1 - The Weight of This Combination - full transcript

Sarah pursues the missing Helena who is held in a faraway compound. Sarah must use her wiles - and acting chops - to deter a Topside investigator who threatens the Leda sisters' lives. Meanwhile, Cosima appears to be rebounding from her illness, while Alison and Donnie face newfound financial woes. But when the menace of Castor rears its head once more, Sarah and her entire family must come together to survive.

We're clones. We're lab rats in an illegal experiment.
These were Rachel's parents.
Project Leda... I mean, it's total military speak.
The military created us?
We're sick. Your little girls are dying.
Your attempts to make new clones should meet with failure.
I want the key to your cipher.
The Island Of Dr Moreau...
Professor Duncan gave it to me for a present.
For the embryos.
Those are my babies?
In nine months, we'll be welcoming a brand-new you into the world.
My father is the father. I'm carrying your babies.
SCREAMS AND LAUGHTER
- Did you burn down the fish people's ranch? - No.
Auntie Cosima!
You will no longer be working with clones.
- Frankfurt. - None of this is personal.
If you let her die without me it is personal!
Kira gave her bone marrow to cure Cosima.
Enjoy your oophorectomy.
Sarah will never forgive me.
You did what you had to.
My name is Marion Bolts. I'm from Topside.
We...steer the Dyad group.
This is Project Castor.
SUMMERY MUSIC
Oi, Meathead, I don't think those are going to fit.
They are very little.
Maybe you can wear them on your fingers.
They're not for her, silly!
Helena's going to have a little monkey too.
Monkey number two.
Felix, that ox liver smells fantastic!
Doesn't it? It's our sestra's favourite.
Marinated in Horilka all day.
Mmm, that'll go perfectly with these.
Hey, you going to say thank you?
Thank you, sestra Alison.
Oh, heavens, just a few things I made.
This is your special day, Helena. You and your precious cargo.
Dude, you look awesome.
You look awesome, also, sestra. You are well?
Oh, yeah, I am like way better, thanks to science.
Check it out.
Babka cake.
Mm-hmm.
Kielbasa.
Go ahead. Dig in, you're eating for two now.
MUSIC WINDS DOWN AND STOPS
SHE GASPS
SHE SCREAMS
SHE BREATHES HEAVILY
Relax, Helena. You remember me, don't you?
Yes, Pupok.
It's been a long time.
You're being tested again. And this time you're carrying a child.
It's hot here. I can taste sand.
They took me from my sestras.
Nobody said it was going to be easy, kiddo.
BEEPING
Are there still fish in the water?
Yeah, sleepy fish because we never come to visit.
Darling, why don't you take a stroll by the bend and see
if you can find some fish?
Not too far.
See if you can find the monkeyfish.
OK.
Well, it has been a while since we've been back to Shite Beach.
It was your memorial. That was lovely.
- Vic spoke. - Can we just enjoy this, please?
Enjoy military boy clones with scars all over their faces?
- Don't pretend this is over, Sarah. - Marion is handling it.
Marion has already buggered off to Europe.
To cover for us.
She's controlling Dyad, it's the only reason I got out.
Nothing is benevolent with these people, Sarah.
You know it, we've seen it time and again.
Who's that?
What did I tell you, Sarah? The penny's going to drop.
Kira? C'mere.
It's Delphine.
God, she looks good.
Until three weeks ago, we didn't even know Project Castor existed.
They were a myth. But now they're a bomb.
- and shock waves are coming. - These guys aren't my problem.
I'm sorry, they are.
Rachel has powerful friends, and you put a pencil in her eye.
Listen, please. There are threats to Leda from outside and in.
And Marion, she sent me, yes,
to protect Dyad, but to keep your sisters safe.
- Right. - At any cost.
Have you even talked to your girlfriend yet?
I need to show you how we caught him.
Who's that?
Her name is Krystal Goderitch.
I don't want to see this shit.
It gets worse.
Another one.
We intercepted them as they were forcing her into the trunk of a car.
Now, Krystal was lucky, she lived.
But this one killed two members of the security team.
And the other one got away.
Why? What were they after?
He hasn't told us so much as his name.
And now he says he'll only talk with you.
Well, here I am.
You're a legend, Sarah Manning.
You got a name, or a serial number or some shit I can call you?
You're made of the good stuff, aren't you?
Krystal had no idea what she was made of.
Found the whole concept very confusing.
- I never met her. - No. But you met Alison and Cosima.
And the rest, as they say at Dyad, is, uh...
c'est histoire.
'What do you want with us?'
The walls have ears. Come closer, I'll whisper it to you.
I met one of your brothers, too.
I think I know which one.
Yeah, I kicked him in the face.
You think that's funny?
He wasn't a soldier. He was a Prolethean.
Was he? Hard to tell who's who these days.
I mean, what is the Wild One doing with Dyad?
I'm not with Dyad.
You're trusting the wrong people.
I only trust my sisters.
I know, it's a family affair.
With Felix.
And your step mum, Mrs Sadler. And of course...
little Kira.
A child. How special you are.
You talk about my family, you come near them, I will kill you.
Pull her out. Pull her out, now.
Sarah...
Count your sisters.
I'm fine, Sarah, thank you for asking, but any boy clone who
crosses the Hendrixes is going to get his butt kicked.
Girls! No bunching!
What about you, Fee?
Doing fine. We're just hanging out here, with my new roomie, Cosima.
Oh, fishsticks! Ref!
I'm sorry, I have to go. I have to go, Sarah.
'Bye.'
Cosima's temperature's down to normal, by the way.
She's got a bit of colour in her cheeks.
'And Helena?'
Helena's an albino.
'Tell Sarah that Helena hasn't came back.'
- What?! - Is she talking to Delphine? Is she with Delphine?
Cosima's telling me to tell you Helena still hasn't shown up.
- Oh, shit. - 'And I think her bag's gone.'
I've got a bad feeling about this.
Well, what do you want us to do about it?
Ummm... Meet me at S's, yeah?
- OK. - Yeah? - Bye. - OK.
Helena's missing.
No, no. You and I, we have other priorities.
No, we don't. My priority's my sister.
And you're going to go see Cosima.
I warned you about a threat from within.
Topside is sending an investigator to Dyad.
To assess the security risk posed by you and your sisters.
- That's your problem. - No, it's our problem.
The man that is coming is a cleaner.
He cannot find out what we did to Rachel.
So you're going to have to play your part.
What part?
You have to play Rachel.
Oh, piss off, Delphine.
Sarah, please, we are in this together. Please.
I'm leaving. And you're not stopping me, are you?
Yeah?
OK, so I'm going to send you - you sit at the very back.
- OK? You guys sit together. - Yooo hooo! Alison!
Hi! OK, up you get.
Driving the Soccer Starz bus? Look at you helping out.
Marci. What can I do for you?
Well, don't worry, I'm not trying to list your house!
It's election time again.
So can I count on your support for School Trustee?
You're the incumbent, I'm pretty sure you're safe, Marci.
Honestly, Alison? I am so inspired by your recovery.
You are still a community leader in Bailey Downs.
And you know what?
Maybe, in exchange for just a smidge of campaigning,
I could help revive your monthly potluck.
Um.
I heard you plan to tinker electoral boundaries,
taking Bailey Downs out of the Glendale school district.
Well, uh, it's just one possibility.
That would mean my kids have to change schools.
So instead of supporting you,
I've been thinking of running against you.
Really?
Yeah. So, best of luck to you.
OK, up you get. Everybody on.
Let's go.
What are you doing here?
I finally did it, Ali.
I finally told Susan Teller what was what.
Oh, my God, you got fired.
It was frickin' glorious. I called her a bitch to her face.
- Donnie, that's enough. - What?
People are watching.
You shush your mouth, and I will see you at home.
Um... They took the keys to the Taurus.
Honey, they took my Taurus.
Dad? Why are you here?
OK, go inside, go inside, OK? Good, Gemma.
OK, everybody, hands in, windows up!
On the bus, Donnie. Get on the bus.
OK.
Hi, everybody.
You know my face?
Never had the pleasure.
That's not what I asked.
Honestly, I don't know you, son.
Think hard. One. Of a kind.
You're a Castor?
Professor Ethan Duncan was here.
Major Dierden agreed that Project Castor would leave me and mine out of this.
I'm not under Dierden's orders.
Where is Duncan now? With Dyad?
You're making your big entrance too late, love.
Duncan went in to Dyad,
and cared for it so little he made himself dead.
All right. His research. Where is it?
At the Dyad, I assume.
Not the sharpest knife in the box, are you, pet?
The eye was lost...
She sustained some trauma to the frontal lobe.
It's too early to predict... impairment.
Topside is sending Ferdinand. He lands in three hours.
Topside took action on Leda before. There was an incident, in 2006.
- Helsinki. - Yes.
Marion briefed me. I'm here so it doesn't happen again.
I've talked to Sarah.
She mustn't uncover Helsinki. Not even Rachel knows.
Can I count on you, Dr Nealon? To put Leda above its individuals?
Neither of us can afford to play favourites now, can we?
No, we can't.
ECHOING VOICES AND FOOTSTEPS
Can you hear us?
Two bloody boy clones in one day.
What the hell is it that they want all of a sudden?
This one wanted Duncan. His "research".
Sorry.
Sarah. I made...
I made a war-time decision.
It's only a matter of time before you find out.
What have you done?
It was the only way I could see to get you out of Dyad.
Marion wanted Castor information,
and Paul wanted something in return...
Helena.
It's what I had to do at the time.
- What? Betray my sister? Give her to them? - For Kira.
That is not your bloody decision, S, is it!
Does Dyad know about this? Did Cal?
No. It was Paul's demand, I... I had to choose.
Sarah, stop, come on...
Please. Don't turn your back on me, not on your people.
You're not my people.
Great.
Stick me in the middle with a bloody apple in my mouth.
Please, go after her, don't let her make it worse.
Well, she's going to make it worse, she will,
but right now I need to get you to a hospital, so I'm calling Benjamin.
Scarlett just fell on her face.
Ouch.
Like there's a cliff, and there's barely any water at the bottom.
Hey, can I ask you something?
Yeah.
Do you remember when you were waking me up to tell me
to read that story to you?
Yeah.
Yeah? I was having this dream I was like, way above.
And I could see below.
And then I came back - to you.
Did you feel that thing?
- I don't know. - Yeah, I don't know, too.
I don't really have words for what I'm trying to say.
You had to come back so Delphine can make you better with my stem cells.
KNOCK ON DOOR
Hello? Cosima? It's me.
Hey! I'm so happy you're back.
I only have a minute, so...
Oh, OK. Just a minute?
You're not wearing your cannula. Are you feeling OK?
Yeah, I'm fine. Don't. Don't... don't mother me. What's going on?
I'm looking for Sarah.
Is she here, because she won't answer my calls?
No.
I'm sorry, this Rachel problem is very critical, so I need her help.
Could you just talk to me?
I am taking over some of Rachel's duties.
So I won't be working with you and Scott for a while.
So, you're the new Rachel.
- Awesome. - Cosima...
I'm keeping my promise - to love all of your sisters equally.
But to do that, I can't do this. You understand?
OK. I get it.
Your minute's up, you should probably just go.
We all have a part to play. Me, Sarah, Alison.
But yours is to cure. Yourself and all of your sisters.
I love you.
- Scott is going to come to do a - check up. OK.
Well, I've run the numbers. You can't run from numbers, Donnie.
We have one mortgage payment left.
Well, we're not taking from our retirement fund.
Look, look, look. I've got...
347.82 in expenses from when I was a monitor.
So that's good.
Plus, I'm incredibly employable.
But you know, honey, I was thinking maybe you could...
work with your mum again part-time at Bubbles for a bit.
I will dig ditches for this family,
but I am not going back to my mother's store.
Besides, I have a bee in my bonnet.
- I want to run for school trustee. - You do?
Well, Marci Coates wants to change the district boundaries.
- I know. I heard she's manipulating real estate prices. - Yes!
- Yeah, Marci's got to go. - Mm-hm.
For the kids.
Yes.
PHONE ALERT
Oh, it's Dyad.
There was an emergency, Sarah's up to her eyeballs.
She OK?
Hello?
Delphine?
How could S do that to Helena?
I mean, who am I meant to call family now?
You can't put them all under your wing.
What should I do? Should I abandon her?
Just like everyone else has done her entire life?
For you and Kira, I'd have done the same thing.
I'd have done the same thing that Siobhan did.
Leave S out of it, please.
PHONE RINGS
This is the other thing. Delphine.
Delphine's got your number? Well, we definitely need new clone phones.
She wants my help saving Leda and Dyad.
Jesus. Don't these people know you never even finished high school?
Piss off.
Maybe she can help me.
Help you with what? Help you with Helena?
Yeah.
Please don't.
Please...
Hi, Delphine.
I won't condone this, Delphine. Rachel's a stretch for her.
It will be brief. Ferdinand knows Rachel, but it's... it's my meeting.
You can just say hello and then excuse yourself.
You have a cleaner named Ferdinand?
You don't think I can do this?
Rachel Duncan, uber-bitch.
That was terrible.
If you're going to do this, then you need to wear white, OK?
White dazzles, God knows you'll need distraction.
- Yeah, that's good. - The deal is, you're going to help me with Helena.
- Don't say yes. - Yes.
But let's take it one step at time.
Well, Castor has her. So what are you going to do about that?
Everything I can.
But first we need to get through this...inquisition.
Ferdinand can sense anything amiss.
If we falter, he will smell it.
Well, don't falter, Delphine.
Give us some space. I have to change.
96 over 60.
- Hey! - So your blood pressure's pretty good.
- Yeah. - How's your heart?
Oh.
I'm done with the French.
Seriously, Cosima.
With soldier clones running around,
and you know, all this lesbian drama...
uh, I don't know that I want to work on the super secret shit any more.
OK.
Yeah, I get it.
Um...but you might want to check this out.
The Island Of Dr Moreau?
It was a gift from Professor Duncan.
Dude...
This could be...his key.
To unlock the rest of the synthetic sequences.
- Mm-hm. - Does Delphine know you have this?
I've learned from Dyad that secrets are power.
And until you and I decipher it, no-one's going to know about it.
Not even my sisters.
Welcome to the Dyad Institute.
Enjoy your oophorectomy.
Ferdinand.
Welcome. Delphine Cormier.
Dr Cormier. Yes.
Rachel.
Nice to see you again, Ferdinand.
I'm so sorry, I'm between flights...
I need you both.
Please.
In the light of the Castor revelation, Topside has engaged me
to conduct a security review of Dyad.
We understand.
Marion has held a living, breathing Castor subject in her basement
- for three weeks... - Yes. - ..without reporting it.
I believe she needed genetic confirmation.
Like you, I've only just been brought up to speed.
Who else is aware?
Dr Nealon, Rachel, and myself are the only ones in the loop.
Paul Dierden.
It appears he was a Castor mole.
You let him get right next to you.
He was her monitor. Dr Leekie put him there.
You have consent over your monitors.
I consented, yes. To Dr Leekie's choice.
There's more.
Castor has kidnapped Helena, Sarah Manning's maternal twin.
Is this true?
Yes.
- You're holding Sarah Manning. Correct? - Yes.
I'd like to question her.
Is that really necessary?
It is.
Necessary.
Whatever you need.
After you, Rachel.
Holy doodle, here we go.
Oi, oi, Rachel.
Shut up.
Never gets old,
does it?
Yeah, it does.
Take it as a compliment, Miss Manning.
You have a face to fight wars for.
But when the wild seed blows back into the fold
with something like Castor on her heels, I get suspicious.
What's Castor? What's that?
Sarah. This is very important.
In all your unmonitored wanderings through our murky history,
have you ever met a male clone?
Answer the question.
No, why? Are you one?
No? Never met a soldier boy?
No whisperings from Professor Duncan?
No. I've only met my sisters.
- Sisters. - Yeah.
You really are the wild one, aren't you?
Tell me, Rachel, 50 years from now,
do you think your kind will still be calling each other sister?
I would hope we'd just be another person in the checkout line.
HE CHUCKLES
Jolly good.
What are you doing?!
What are you doing?!
- Ferdinand, please... - Uh-uh-uh.
Wh-What's happening?
I thought you were recovering from surgery.
Get your hands off me, you pig!
You watch your mouth!
Ferdinand, may we have a word?
We had to postpone the oophorectomy.
Your goal is to isolate her fecundity ASAP.
Why are you waiting?
I'm not a doctor.
You cannot remove the ovary of a woman who is ovulating.
I know it's inconvenient. But she's contained.
No risk to Topside.
Then remove her to her cell, please.
I know you're lying.
About flying anywhere tonight.
Is that for my benefit? Or hers?
I wouldn't attempt to pull the wool over your eyes, Ferdinand.
I'm surprised that your nemesis is still breathing.
- Why did you let him do that? - Sh!
Not getting cold feet, are you?
Things are already in motion.
Sarah's biology is too unique to waste.
So, by the way, is Helena's.
We need to locate her.
We...
need to discuss Helsinki.
Well, I want to discuss Helena.
Then I'll come to you tonight, when I've finished here.
All right?
I look forward to it.
He's doing it again.
Guy thinks he's the naked Buddha.
I'm doing my rounds, I'll be back.
Don't...don't worry about me, guys. OK?
Sarah, these people are dangerous.
I thought Mr Rubber Gloves was going to throttle me on the spot.
I know, I'm sorry.
I just don't believe that Helena is a priority for Delphine.
We have to make our own moves.
No, you're right. We can't rely on anyone but ourselves.
We should...we should go after her. The poor thing.
No. No, no, no.
You tell Sarah I don't want you doing anything like this ever again.
KNOCK ON DOOR
I got to go.
Be careful, Sarah.
Hey, I love you guys.
Yeah, me too.
Hello, again.
INSTRUMENTS BEEP
Hello, Rachel.
I warned you this was personal.
What day is it? Hm?
Mm...
Da...
- What's my name? - Ma...
Come on.
- What? - What...happened to my c...
..corncob?
Oh, come on.
Come on, you can do better than that.
SHE MOANS
- What's my name? - Stop!
Stop, Delphine.
There! There we go.
There you go, good girl.
Only I'm you now. Do you understand that?
I'm you...
and I will erase you completely, Rachel,
unless you tell me what you're planning with Ferdinand.
- Ferdinand? - Yeah.
What have you got going on with him?
- Mm... - Don't lie, because I saw it.
You...
You saw...
- You saw... - Come on.
Helsinki?
Oh...
you wicked sister.
You're not supposed to know about that.
Now, what else do you know?
Hm?
You're going to talk to me.
SHE GROANS
You're going to talk to me.
CLASSICAL MUSIC PLAYS
Drink?
Same as last time...
at the Kronenhalle Bar.
You've come all this way, why not try some local colour?
Rachel, Rachel, Rachel.
Why haven't you been returning my calls?
Appearances, Ferdinand.
Bourbon rocks.
So, the subject was Helena.
You're not yourself.
Did you sleep with Paul Dierden?
He was my monitor. What do you think?
I think...
he was your bitch.
HE SHUDDERS
Hello, again.
Who's a dirty clone?
You are.
You're avoiding Helena.
I want you to consider a prisoner swap with Castor.
Agh!
This has nothing to do with Castor. This is about Helsinki.
You wanted this!
Marion is too soft - you said it yourself,
if we didn't act, your sisters could expose Topside.
Helsinki is the only option.
There are other options.
No, it's too late. Be strong, huh?
The Helsinki girls were eradicated in 24 hours -
six clones, 32 collateral.
As soon as you have Sarah's ovaries, put her down.
We'll induce Cosima tomorrow. She'll deteriorate rapidly.
And Alison Hendrix?
It's under way.
Family chloroformed...
- followed by a house fire. - HE CHUCKLES
Proven effective by the Finns.
Excuse me.
I need a moment.
PHONE VIBRATES
- Pick up. VOICEMAIL: - Hello,
you've reached Alison Hendrix, I'm away from the phone,
but leave a message...
- Oh, shit. - ..and I'll get back to you in a jiff.
BEEP Alison, get out of your house now.
Take the kids... DOOR OPENS
..and get yourself away...
Who are you talking to in here?
No...
No-one.
What game are you playing, Rachel?
Hmm?
What are you up to?
I don't know what you're talking about.
Something is going on.
If you're not careful, Helsinki will swallow you too,
and you won't get what you want.
I want my sisters spared.
No.
You want the child.
Don't you?
More than anything?
So, if you're having second thoughts...
..remember Kira.
Please...
Poor, damaged Rachel.
What happened to you?
Hmm?
Who's behind that face?
You don't recognise me, Ferdinand?
Do you recognise me now?
Yes.
LIGHTS CLICK
BELT CRACKS
HE LAUGHS
Do you recognise me now?
Yes.
Yes, yes.
Pull it.
Argh!
Remember our safe word?
No.
Argh!
BIRD SQUAWKS
HE CHOKES
Stop! Come on, stop!
Come on.
Get up, go.
What is this?
Shut up and stop squirming.
I...
I am sanctioned by Topside...
To conduct a security review of self-aware clones.
Not screw our product.
Helsinki's happening, Delphine.
Won't Marion be impressed?
Conspiring with one clone to murder the others.
Now who will pay for this, hmm?
Her?
Topside's favourite pet?
Or you, Ferdinand?
Because they will kill you.
What do you want?
DOOR CLOSES
Marion will meet us in Zurich.
You report to Topside that Dyad is secure.
And self-aware Leda clones
an essential evolution of the programme.
- I know how leverage works. - Good.
Wait for me downstairs.
Rachel...
Rachel was going to eliminate us.
- Everybody we love. - Yes.
They've done it before.
You should have told me. I only did this for Helena.
I know. I counted on it.
You said you'd help me find her.
I already am.
But until I figure out what Castor really is, you need to stand down.
Don't try anything else.
I'll be back.
CHITTERING
My legs hurt.
SCORPION: Picture a box, inside a box, inside a box...
She's been in almost 48 hours.
All right, in you go.
SCORPION: Congratulations.
You escaped the first box.
HE SIGHS
I swear, this guy's from another world or something.
LOCK BUZZES
Hello, brother.
I'm trying to figure out what these maniacs are after.
She says they have the same tattoo.
Both the Leda and Castor originals are lost.
Yet another mystery.
Helena. I'm very happy to meet you.
I could beat her, Donnie -
I could beat her like a French meringue.
You have your orders.
We're going to finish the job.
