07x13 - Blood Giant

Previously on "The 100"...

SHEIDHEDA: I ask only that you take a knee to show your loyalty.

NIKKI: The killers and the thieves are at your service.

EMORI: If you try to come in here,

I blow the reactor.

SHEIDHEDA: Stay here, wait them out.

When the door opens, kill them all.

CADOGAN: She has the key.
CLARKE: The key's the Flame.

Is my daughter in the key?

If I can get the Flame, you can find out.

BELLAMY: My Shepherd, Clarke doesn't have the key.

All of you will die if I don't give him the Flame.

I'll take you to it.

What the hell happened here?

[WHISPERING]

GABRIEL: Russell.

Heh. What the hell is this?

Who the hell are you?

That's not Russell.

MAN: This is Malachi kom Sangedakru, and you will kneel before him.

Well, I guess we found Sheidheda's code.

SHEIDHEDA: Since my ascension, the protocol has become rather simple really.

Kneel... or die.

Ordinarily, I would relish the opportunity to recruit your forces to the cause, but unfortunately, I have neither the time nor patience to suffer your primitive tribalism.

[SHOUTING]

RAVEN: Murphy!

Invisibility and ray guns I can accept.

That needs some explaining, though.

Tell me Madi's safe with Gaia.

We thought Gaia was with you.

Madi's safe for now.

Restrain the soldier with him.

- CLARKE: No.
- MURPHY: Hey, hey.

- CLARKE: She's with us.
- DISCIPLE: Let's go.

CADOGAN: She was standing unrestrained by the throne.

The only reason she is not dead is she was unarmed.

[GROANS]

CADOGAN: The microphone.

That wound is deep.

I have no interest in removing you from your throne.

Here's my proposal.

[GROWLS]

You give me undisturbed passage to get what I came for.

That means I see not a single soul on our path, and I leave Dr. Santiago here to treat you.

When we're gone, you're free to continue the debasement of our species until you're saved like the rest of humanity by the completion of my quest.

Refuse this, and you die.

[GROANS]

Right then.

Onward to the key.

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

That's Russell Prime's dog, not yours.

He wouldn't want a cog petting her.

Come on. You know you want to pet her.

I bet she's hungry, too.

I'll be right back.

[GRUNTS]

Everyone's hungry.

How is Jackson gonna get our rations past that?

JEREMIAH: John Murphy will think of something.

We're safe now because of him.

I have faith.

No offense,but if our lives really do depend on Murphy, we're screwed.

SHEIDHEDA, ON P.A.:
And I repeat, anyone...

CADOGAN: A fire-burned castle surrounded by a city of garbage dumpsters...

SHEIDHEDA: Like to avoid that, stay out of sight...

CADOGAN: Everywhere human beings go is worse off for it, but thanks to us, we will transcend.

Thanks to us, we will reach the promised land.

CLARKE: Oh, for God's sake.

Hey. So what's our play here?

- Our play?
- Don't get me wrong.

You look good, not as good as me, but I know a thing or two about pretending to be something you're not.

This isn't an act, Murphy.

I'm trying to save us all.

I don't expect you to understand.

Just know that I am your friend and I'm looking out for you.

That's very reassuring.

I'm just gonna...

Tell me he's not serious.

Welcome to the party.

Yeah. Not gonna lie. Feeling a little out of the loop.

Mutual. You said that Madi was safe for now.

What does that even mean?

She's safe. She's with Emori...

In the reactor.

I know, I know, but believe it or not, it was the safest place in Sanctum.

What the hell's been going on here?

CADOGAN: Hold.

CLARKE: Look. I'm in a hurry. You have our friends.

I would like them back, then to see my daughter.

If you want to see yours, the Flame is this way.

CADOGAN: New plan.

You go. We'll stay here.

BELLAMY: Sir, you heard her.

As long as our friends are out there, she won't risk their lives.

That's why these two are staying with us.

Hurry along, Clarke.

I don't want to be on this infernal moon a moment longer than I have to.

Well, what do you say we wait in the tavern instead?

Oy! Ohh! What the hell?

- You get used to it.
- Yeah?

Come.

CADOGAN: I like this spot. High ground.

So Sheidheda's alive, and Madi's in a nuclear reactor?

You did good.

All of our friends are missing, and Bellamy is a sheep.

So did you.

MAN: Give me a hand.

WOMAN: Be happy you don't have to clean up the blood.

GABRIEL: You know, if the blade hit your kidney, there's not much that I can do for you, and something tells me they won't take you to Bardo.

Good. It's time we let him find out what death is like a second time.

She'll miss me when I'm gone.

Did he suffer?

Who... Russell?

No. It was quick.

JOSEPHINE: Oh, come on. Like you care.

What's the matter, Gabriel?

You don't look happy to see me.

No.

No, no, no, no. Not now.

What's wrong?

Don't tell them.

Just say you need band-aids or something for whoever's wearing

Daddy's last body so we can be alone.

We need antitoxin.
The suns are eclipsing.

Oh, for Prime's sake.

When that happens, the trees release a toxin that...

INDRA: That drives everything mad.

I'm aware.

It's nighttime. There are no suns.

How can you be sure?

Because the red sun paints the planet we're orbiting.

Because I'm already feeling the effects.

So just to recap.

The Shepherd over there is the same guy who built the bunker that saved humanity from Praimfaya twice, and now he wants the Flame, broken by you, so he can start a war with... whoever built the Stones in order to turn all of us into... beings of light.

- Yep.
- Ah.

Is it weird that to me the craziest part of all of this is Bellamy's robe?

Nope.

Echo and Octavia are hostages, and... look at him.

Yeah. Well, not to point out the obvious, but we're hostages, too.

Yeah, but something happened to him out there.

CADOGAN: What's taking her so long?

She'll be here.

I know how hard this is on you, son, believing in something with all your heart that the people you love don't understand.

You remind me of myself when I was young.

Would you excuse us, please?

Of course, my Shepherd.

Doucette's a good man.

He'll make a fine replacement for Anders...

But he's not like us.

Sir?

The disciples are taught our ways from birth.

They know nothing else.

Makes faith easy.

We, on the other hand, know the pull of love between individuals, what it makes us do, the highs and lows of it, how it leads to hatred of the other, tribalism.

I've spent generations dedicating my life to something greater.

Transcendence.

Now you know the weight of that, too.

The path of the prophet is always hard.

Your friends will understand eventually.

You had a family.

How did you manage it?

I feel like I'm failing both you and them.

You're not failing me, Bellamy, far from it.

You're special.

You were given a glimpse of what comes next just as I was.

They all think I'm crazy.

And so we ignore their judgments and we save them anyway.

For all mankind.

For all mankind.

[ALARM BLARES]

MAN, NO P.A.: Attention, Sanctum.

- What is this?
- Red sun toxin has been detected.

Make your way to your assigned location for evacuation.

Time to play another round of "Who Wants to Murder Your Friends?"

Sir, we should get you back to Bardo.

I'm not going anywhere without the Flame, and for all we know, this is another one of Clarke's tricks.

If it is, then it's a good one.

[PEOPLE SHOUTING]

MAN, ON P.A.: Attention, Sanctum.

Red sun toxin has been detected.

Bugs.

MAN, ON P.A: Location for evacuation.

This is not a test. Go now.

It's OK. We're safe.

The reactor's airtight.

Toxin can't get in here.

[BANG, MEN GRUNTING]

[BARKING]

[MEN GRUNTING]

Won't be airtight for long.

JEREMIAH: They're calling our bluff.

They know we won't detonate the reactor.

MAN, ON P.A.: Attention, Sanctum.

[SHOUTING]

[PICASSO BARKING]

Trey, Jeremiah, get everyone into secondary and seal the door. Go!

You, too. We've only got one gun.

Surprise!

Dad!

It's been swell, but I think I'll be going now.

You're cute, but I will kill your daddy if you don't step aside.

He knows we can't let you open the door.

EMORI: Nikki, it's true. Look.

[MEN GRUNTING]

[BANG]

If those men open that door, red sun toxin will spill into this reactor.

MADI: Human shields only work if you're not willing to let the other person die.

The shield. Here.

What the hell are you doing?

Stop, or in seconds, this kid is fatherless.

...

...

Turn on the damn lights, or I cut this guy...

[CLANG]

You let the bugs in.

Yeah. Two bugs with one Stone.

[GRUNTING]

I just hope it's not .

MAN: All right. Let's go. Come on. Follow me.

Let's go! Everybody move!

We should be going with them to Ryker's Keep, or maybe you'd like to drown me again in the pond.

RAVEN: Power's out. That means the shield's down.

Guys.

[BUZZING]

We should run.

BELLAMY: She's right.
We should go right now.

Not without the key.

DOUCETTE: I agree with Bellamy.

We should execute the hostages and get you home.

Well, Bellamy never said that.

BELLAMY: Clarke heard the alarm, too.

She'll go for Madi.

Yes, right, good. The reactor.

Perfect. I'll get the power back on and kill the bugs.

BELLAMY: Before they kill us.

Everyone grab a torch!

BELLAMY: Sir, stay with me.

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

[ALARM BLARING]

He's the last one. I sent saline ahead to Ryker's.

- Just make sure the IV stays in.
- MAN: Will do.

Hey. Where do you think you're going?

Hey. Wrong way. We're evacuating.

- It's OK.
- Go.

JOSEPHINE: Ah. It's good to be back.

Not sure how I feel about all the old mes being turned into a chair, but, hey, I do believe in recycling.

JACKSON: Dr. Santiago?

Dr. Santiago, right?

You OK?

Antitoxin.

Get him to the keep.
I'll be right behind you.

JOSEPHINE: Hmm. Josephine II.

I liked that body.

JACKSON: Where are the others?

- They went looking for you.
- Right. Yeah.

That's a... that's a long story, and we don't have much time.

Just tell me if Nate's OK.

You have no idea who that is, do you?

Nate?

Miller.

Of course. Yeah. Um, Nate's fine.

Is he here?

No, but he's safe.

Ah. There you are.

Almost empty.

The Primes used it to get to space after Russell threw the bomb.

All the ingredients are here.

We can make more.

- This one's yours.
- It's the only dose, and I don't know how to make more.

You take it.

JOSEPHINE: Yeah, Gabriel. You take it.

I'm used to working under the influence of the toxin.

You're not, and I... really need your help.

Aw. I missed you, too.

- Be quiet.
- Excuse me?

Nothing.

[INHALES]

First, we steam distill the actual toxin into a supersaturated solution.

grams per milliliter to start.

Copy that.

[SIGHS]

God, it's sexy when you get all sciency.

Not now.

Why not now?

Who cares about these people?

Let them tear each other to pieces.

All we need is the Flame.

You're a Nightblood. We fix it, we put it in your head and save humanity.

I know you're thinking it, or I wouldn't be.

Becca Franko designed the mind drives and the Flame.

They speak the same language.

We can repair the code.

[ECHOING]

Different connections.

Gabriel, you engineered memory drives to hold entire minds, consciousness.

On Skyring, you used a damn Etch A Sketch to watch the Colin Benson show.

Surely you can rig some Eligius tech to pull data off the Flame.

You can solve the mystery of the Stone, start the last war... the test, whatever.

No. No.

Not for Cadogan.

For you then.

You've got the blood, not him.

You take the test for all mankind.

We level up because of you.

What better way to make up for all the things you did in this lab to conquer death, hmm?

All the broken eggs it took to make this omelet.

What do you say, my love?

We came across the stars to save the human race.

Now's your chance.

[MEN GRUNTING]

[BANG]

[BUZZING AND CHIRPING]

[GRUNTING]

[BUZZING AND CHIRPING]

[SCREAMING]

MAN: Get them off!

JEREMIAH: It stopped.

[SCREAMING]

This way.

MURPHY: We don't have much time before the bugs come back.

BELLAMY: Scatter them!

Let's get the door open.

Seal the windows. The swarm's still outside.

Wait. Hold the door.

RAVEN: Clarke!

What's in the bag?

Antitoxin from the farmhouse.

For your daughter.

Enough for all of us, but, yes, I was thinking of Madi before you.

Another lesson in the destructiveness of familial love.

[INHALES]

[INHALES]

[KNOCKING]

MAN: It didn't work.

Do you have the Flame or not?

If you open this door,

I'll give it to you without a fight.

All right. Disciple Kelly, the door.

KELLY: Yes, sir.

- Ohh!
- Here they come!


Stay behind me! Go, go!

TREY: Go!

Whoa, whoa, hey, hey. Good guy, good guy, good guy, remember?

- Hey.
- Hey.

It burns!

Raven.

Don't worry. We have antitoxin for everyone upstairs.

You took down the shield?

- Yeah. Sorry about that.
- No. It worked.

I'll get the power back on, hopefully without killing anyone this time.

For all mankind.

It's been too long. I can hear the bugs.

Control, disciple.

[PEOPLE SCREAMING]

WOMAN: I told you our orders are to guard the Stone and the prisoner.

MAN: We don't need the prisoner.

First, I kill my enemy's enemy.

Then I kill my enemy.

[SCREAMING, BUGS BUZZING]

I don't think you should have given him that.

Why?

I remember things.

Your sketchbook?

Madi, don't tell anyone that, OK? Ever.

How much longer do we have to stay here?

BELLAMY: Once the power's back on, the bugs will kill each other, and the shield will prevent more from coming in.

Until then, it's not worth the risk.

EMORI: Hey, finally, stranger.

It's good to see you, Bellamy.

It's good to see you, too.

Well, those are the clothes of a man with a story.

Yeah, Bellamy. Why don't you tell us a story?

Another time.

Not long now, my Shepherd.

COMPUTER: Power restart all sectors.

And the crowd goes wild.

[CLANG]

Seriously?

COMPUTER: Secondary containment clear.

[GRUNTING]

[GRUNTS]

Hatch used to say returning to the scene of a crime was like a fish that was caught and released biting in another hook.

"Only fools and fish did that," he'd say, but he's dead now because of you, so it don't really matter what he'd say now, does it?

- Nikki, wait.
- I've waited long enough.

You're going to die today in the same place that he did.

There's poetry in that, coming full circle and all, but first, I want to hear you say what you did.

[WHIMPERS]

Here it is. Yeah.

Cry while you confess your sins.

The grim reaper will wait.

I killed him.

I knew radiation was leaking, and I... sent them in.

Then things got really bad, and I... I locked him in here...

[SOBS]

Because I was afraid he was as much of a coward as I am.

He wasn't. He was brave.

I chose to let them all die...

And save myself instead.

It should have been me.

It should have been me.

If it'll bring you peace, do it, Nikki.

Please.

I have a better idea.

You live with what you've done.

[SOBBING]

[CLATTER]

[CRYING]

Raven?

Hey, hey.

It's OK. It's OK.

You're OK.

MAN: I'm going after the Shepherd.

WOMAN: You'll do no such thing.

You'll follow my orders.

SHEIDHEDA: The natives are getting restless.

- You should hurry.
- I'm going as fast as I can.

For God's sake, before I bleed out, please.

Is there a problem over there?

INDRA: No. No problem.

DISCIPLE: I am his shield and his sword.

Those are my orders.

[BONES CRACK]

Smart move killing that one.

You got the others on your side?

Now if only you could get the antitoxin for the Shepherd, you'd all be heroes.

I can take you to the lab where...

[DISCIPLES SHOUTING]

[ALL GRUNTING]

MAN: Get in your helmet!

[BONES CRACK]

[SUIT POWERING UP]

[SLOSHING]

[DOOR OPENS]

JOSEPHINE: Looks like we missed all the fun.

Indra?

I saved your life, Indra.

Surely that is worth something.

Yes, it is.

I don't need to kill you because you're already dead.

No one treats him.

Wasn't planning on it.

Me neither.

DISCIPLE, ON COMMS: Report position.

KELLY: Entering the great hall with the Shepherd.

INDRA: Where the hell is my daughter?

CADOGAN: Who the hell is your daughter?

BELLAMY: Indra, hold on.

We didn't know she was missing till today.

Nobody did.

We're gonna get everyone back.

Put down the gun.

It's OK, Indra. He's gonna help us.

GABRIEL: Does that mean you have the Flame?

I do.

JOSEPHINE: Now is the time. Tell him.

I believe I can restore the damaged code with this.

It's used to repair memory drives, stitching together broken strings of code, code that like the Flame itself was created by...

Becca Franko.

Show me.

JOSEPHINE: It's OK. You can do it.

If Becca's memories are still in here, this will find them.

Now we can start the last war.

It's working.

JOSEPHINE: I'm so proud of you, baby.

Now volunteer. He needs a Nightblood.

What is it? What's wrong?

We are.

I'm sorry.

Helmets off and weapons down, all of you, right now!

Antitoxin.

JOSEPHINE: No, Gabriel. You need me.

[INHALES]

Gabriel, please don't!

Gabriel? Gabriel, we need him to get our friends back, your friends...

Echo and Hope, too.

Now put down the gun.

DOUCETTE: Take him!

No!

[DOUCETTE GROANING]

No!

[GROANS]

Don't lose faith.

[GRUNTING]

CLARKE: Raven, fire it up.

We need to get to our friends.

Which planet? Where are they?

It's offline.

Only I know the code.

He's telling the truth.

There's one planet we can't get to.

Enter the code, and you get to live.

CADOGAN: There's your bridge. Go.

You're coming with us.

Now move.

You should have more faith, Clarke.

Not you. You've made your choice.

MURPHY: I really hope this new thing you believe in is worth it.

It is.

Come on. Let's go.

Indra, watch him.

I said I wouldn't lose anyone else... but I have... you.

That doesn't matter to you, though, does it, Disciple Blake?

So much for together.

Let's go.

SHEIDHEDA: I can help you if you help me.

My throne.

The book.

CLARKE: Bellamy...

BELLAMY: Clarke, Madi isn't in danger.

I'll make sure of that.

I am trying to save us all, Clarke.

I'll kill Cadogan.
Is that what you want?

Hold, hold!

Clarke, this isn't about Cadogan.

It's bigger than any of us.

Don't make me do this.

You're not gonna shoot me, Clarke.

The bridge will close. You should go.

No without that book.

Look at yourself, what you feel right now, the need to protect someone you love so badly you're willing to kill your closest friend, someone you trust who's telling you that the fate of the entire human race is at stake.

All that suffering can end.

Madi's suffering, too.

I have no choice but to share this.

I can't let them hurt her.

This is how we do better.

This is the only way.

I'm sorry.

You need to keep this safe for the Shepherd.

Me, too.

DISCIPLE: The bridge is closing! Get...

[CLARKE SOBBING]
