07x04 - Infection, Part III

Will's not picking up.

Almost there.

Whoa.

What the hell.

[ALL SHOUTING.]

We're looking for Dr.

Seldon.

He's with my brother.

The lab, second floor.

D wing.

Stairs will be faster.

Hey!

Hey!

[ALL SHOUTING.]

Man down!

What are you doing?

Hey!

Please move.

- [GROANS.]

- Will!

What happened?

I'm fine.

Dr.

Seldon.

Damn it!

He knocked the hell out of me.

Where is he?

- What happened?

- He sabotaged our work.

- Who?

- David Seldon.

No, David Seldon, he was helping us with the treatment.

He cold-cocked me over the head.

- Oh, God.

- How long were you out?

I don't know couldn't have been long, he might still be in the hospital.

- Okay, go, go.

- You gonna be okay?

- Yeah.

- Listen, you got this?

- Yeah, yeah, yeah, here.

- Okay.

Let me see.

- Is it bad?

- You've looked better.

[CHUCKLES.]

Thanks.

Hey, relax!

This place is the source of the outbreak!

- Yeah!

- And nobody's doing anything!

None of that is true!

Now, back the hell up!

It's all over the Internet!

The outbreak started here.

You're arresting the wrong people!

Back up.

Back Enough.

Enough!

What are you thinking?

5021 George, I need a perimeter set up at Chicago Med.

My sergeant's coming, he's gotta talk to you.

Offender is male, white, 40s, should be considered armed and dangerous.

May be in possession of a deadly bacterial agent.

We gotta cover all the exits.

All right, you got a code for an offender in the building, possibly armed?

- That's a Code Silver.

- Activate it.

I need access to your security room on this floor.

I need all footage the exits, the lots, and I need you to set up a direct line of communication between me and Sharon Goodwin.

Yes, sir.

[CELL PHONE CHIRPS.]

- Code Silver.

- Code Silver?

That's an active security threat in the hospital.

That means they've ID'd the offender and believe he's still in here.

I'll text you as soon as she's out of surgery.

Okay!

[ALL SHOUTING.]

[COUGHING.]

I got her.

Medics?

All right, Alma.

You're all right.

What's going on?

- They think I did this.

- We know you didn't.

I need you to breathe, just focus on your breath, okay, just focus on your breath.

[COUGHING.]

Hi, you're okay, Alma.

We're just gonna give you a little bit of oxygen for that breathing, but I really need you to just calm down, okay?

You're okay.

Everything's gonna be fine.

Deep breaths.

There you go, okay?

Here we go.

I feel like this is getting away from us.

Yeah.

Okay, I've got two vehicles registered to Seldon.

A red 2014 Corolla, license plate 1364987, and a black 2019 Prius, license plate 2336 Eddie Lincoln.

There, top left.

Black Prius.

That's time-stamped eight minutes ago.

He could be anywhere.

5021 Eddie, requesting the air put out an immediate Flash-Message.

All units stay off the zone.

5021 Eddie, go with your Flash.

Be on the lookout for a black 2019 Prius, Illinois tags, last seen fleeing Chicago Med eight minutes ago.

Driver's wanted on multiple homicides.

Patrol rounded up all but two of the quarantine jailbreaks from Med.

We've got BOLOs out on the last two.

We broke up a mob action near 445 North Racine with CFD.

Good.

Bunch of conspiracy theory morons tossed a Molotov cocktail through Mama Garcia's front window.

Yeah, I know.

CFD is just as swamped with calls as we are.

You need to pass these around.

City's in a panic.

You putting more boots on the ground?

Yeah, but I'm keeping a reserve.

When you need a tag team, they'll be ready.

Appreciate it.

All right.

Everyone, listen up.

The entire police department is officially in a manhunt situation.

The identified offender's description, what we know about him, his picture, is in your email.

We are gonna answer calls as we always do, but if you locate this offender, you radio and hold your position.

You do not approach, is that clear?

ALL: Yes.

Stay safe!

Tell me we got something solid.

CPIC hit on Seldon's Prius, Canal and Madison 16 minutes ago.

Followed him on cams into a parking structure connected to Ogilvie Station.

12-tact is sitting on the car.

They did a covert walk-by.

It's empty.

- He buy a train ticket?

- No confirmation of that.

UCs are flooding the station right now.

No tellers ID'd him.

We got Amtrak security checking the cars, holding the trains, just in case.

Now, listen, we don't assume anything.

Seldon could be heading out of town.

He could be hiding.

We follow both.

The transportation teams are up to speed Amtrak, CTA, Metra, they're all aware.

State police for the highways, airport police for O'Hare and Midway.

So what do we know about this guy?

This is Dr.

David Seldon.

He's 47, undergrad from Emory College in '92 with a degree in Chemistry, Master's in the same and a Doctorate, also in Chemistry.

- Married?

- Divorced, recently.

Papers signed for months ago.

He moved out of his house.

No LKA.

No children.

Dr Seldon has been in education and research his entire career, mostly infectious diseases.

He's got no criminal record, I mean, not even a parking ticket, and zero pops of associates with criminal background.

Up until today, this guy has been an upstanding citizen.

All right, well, we've been here before.

We know how this goes.

I want everything on Seldon.

Every single detail.

Every single connection to the victims.

Anything that can find us a motive.

And we hit everyone.

Anyone he knows, any property he could go to.

Jay, start with the ex-wife.

Let's find him fast.

All right, we're starting back at square one, but that doesn't mean we rush.

Okay, mistakes happen in a rush.

We work quickly and deliberately.

- Hi.

- Hey.

Maybe not exactly square one.

So Seldon destroyed all of the samples, but we also tested for Vanc on the microscopic slides, right?

You're right.

Excuse me.

It's still here.

That's a small sample size.

So we need to be selective as we combine additional antibiotics.

We'll go by family.

Cephalosporin's next?

- Yep.

- You got more stores on-site?

Not enough.

But I'll talk to Goodwin and we'll figure it out.

Okay.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have blood flow.

Amanda is gonna get to keep her leg.

Kid's gonna get to walk, dance, do cartwheels in the grass.

All right, let's get her ready to close.

April, you got a plastic surgeon on standby?

Yep, Dr.

Hayes is happy to jump in.

Great let's give this girl some good-looking scars to boast about.

She's gonna be bragging about them at school.

Let's make 'em badass.

BP's dropping.

It's a quick drop.

80 over 50.

Okay, give her bolus.

April, I'm gonna close her up myself.

Pressure's still dropping, 70 over 40.

Damn it.

Push pressors.

Come on, kid.

Stay with me.

Stay with me.

Okay, yeah.

Thanks, Natalie.

Amanda, the girl from Med, went into shock during surgery.

They stabilized her, but she's in critical condition.

14 years old, alone at the hospital.

- Hey, which one is he, guys?

- The one with the red car.

Any activity?

No one in or out since we parked it here.

It's been quiet as a church mouse.

The vehicle in the driveway comes back registered to Carrie White Seldon.

- That's the one.

Thanks.

- Yeah.

You want us to back you up?

No, we're good.

Get back out there.

Copy that.

Hailey, you got your ears on?

Yeah, go.

Digital dump of all Seldon's devices showed last GPS ping on his cell before he shut it off it matches your location.

Seldon may have visited his ex-wife after fleeing Med.

Copy.

Jay.

Chicago PD!

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC.]

Upstairs is clear.

Stairs.

They have a bunker?

You see this?

Looks like blood on the door.

Chicago PD!

Whoever's in there, I need you to open this door and come out with your hands up, nice and slow.

It's probably soundproof.

There's no way we're gonna get into this thing on our own.

It's reinforced steel.

These things are made to withstand fire, collapses, any attempts to get inside.

We got cameras?

No, no cameras.

And if there's any communication wires, they're running through the bottom.

You think Seldon might be inside?

We got blood on the door, so yeah.

There's a good chance he's in there.

Okay, we can open it, but it's not gonna be pretty.

Let's do it.

You sure that column's gonna hold?

We're gonna find out.

You guys ready?

- Yeah, let's go.

- All right, Cruz, let's go.

[MACHINE WHIRRING.]

[GUNSHOTS FIRING.]

Chicago PD, drop your weapon!

No Seldon, that's his wife.

Carrie, drop your weapon now!

- [GUNSHOTS FIRING.]

- Carrie!

No!

Please don't come near me!

Please, I don't want to die!

Please stay away!

No one's gonna hurt you, Carrie, but you need to drop your weapon and come out with your hands up!

I'm not coming out because because my ex-husband said that an infection has started an outbreak, and people are dying and you could be infected.

- Nobody out here is infected.

- Please don't come near me!

Ma'am, we're with the Chicago Fire Department, we know what the outbreak looks like.

I promise you we're not infected.

Don't come near me, I said!

You have to make contact with the disease to get it.

We won't touch you.

Just come out.

[BREATHING HEAVILY.]

Carrie, we don't want to hurt you, but if you don't come out, we're gonna come in.

- [PANTING.]

- Put the weapon down!

Put the gun down, put your hands in the air, and walk towards me.

Do it slow.

- Put it down!

- Okay!

Put your hands up.

Put your hands up!

- Okay.

- Walk out here.

Step towards me.

Step towards me.

Keep coming.

Put your hands against the wall.

[GASPING.]

She's terrified.

She's shutting down.

She says that Sheldon was here, he locked her in the panic room, then left.

She claims that she doesn't know where he is and she's afraid to talk she doesn't want to implicate him.

- I get it.

- Boss.

That basement is insane.

I mean, we're gonna inventory, but there's gotta be a decade's worth of supplies down there.

We're not gonna know what's missing if we don't know what was there in the first place.

Any tech?

Zero, nothing up or down.

He didn't plan the attacks here.

All right, so we'll bring in the ex-wife.

Make her talk.

All right.

Just got back from Lakeshore Memorial.

They're sending over antibiotics.

All right, we're back in business.

I'll help Danover get prepared.

Uh, Dr.

Halstead, did you have someone check you out?

I'm okay.

We can't slow down.

- Miss Goodwin?

- Yeah?

Okay, all right.

I'll be back, excuse me.

Most of them are nothing dermatitis, eczema people are just scared don't blame 'em.

Worse than the Ebola virus in New York.

Ah, my patient.

- Pushing epi now.

- What do we got?

She's got an irregular rhythm, she's in V-fib.

Here, let me take over.

Charged.

Clear.

- No pulse.

- Another milligram of epi.

Come on.

Come on.

Clear.

Come on, Amanda.

Got a pulse sinus rhythm.

Get her on a mask.

Okay, I want to know why this keeps happening.

Seems like a post-surgical reaction to the septic shock.

Could be, but I don't wanna take any chances.

I want fresh blood cultures times two, repeat CBC, and get radiology to scan her leg for any abscesses.

Let's give her everything we've got 30 Levophed, four vasopressin, and another liter of saline.

And add another pressor.

I'm gonna check on her myself every 20.

All right, I've got to get back to quarantine.

Keep me updated?

You're gonna be okay.

I just wanna see him, to talk to him.

Ma'am, I need you to answer my questions.

I am trying.

I've told you everything about my marriage.

But he wouldn't do this, I he wouldn't, he wouldn't.

You and your ex-husband built a panic room.

Some of this must make sense.

For when an outbreak happened but not for when he caused one.

My ex-husband is not crazy, he's not a monster, he he just, he dedicated his whole life to infectious diseases and that's not it's not paranoia, it's it's fear.

It's educated and grounded fear.

And look, all you have to do is turn on the news to see that there are a thousand ways that the world could end.

I mean, there's climate change and there's famine and there's there's war and there's lack of water and there's disease.

And the right outbreak, at the right time, with the right factors it could end this race within months, and that's not paranoia.

That is a truth that people can't handle looking at, and he had to look at it every single day.

All right, and we think your ex-husband caused this, so Not that's not possible.

Hey, Look at me.

Look.

Look.

Look at me.

Look at me!

Your husband did this, okay?

You fired at police officers.

I will hold you, I will charge you, I will make sure you are incarcerated for a very long time.

Now, I'm gonna ask you once did your husband tell you anything else before he left?

Did he?!

Yes, yes, he did.

I asked him why he was leaving, and he said that he wasn't he said that he wasn't done yet, that he had more work to do.

Okay.

Listen to me.

I need a list of everything your husband may have taken from your home or from your storage.

We gotta focus now.

Okay, okay.

[SNIFFLES.]

A satellite phone, $3,000 in cash, lots of chemistry equipment, dishes, spray nozzles, canisters, that sort of thing, and, uh, keys to a 2002 black Ford pickup registered in Carrie's mother's name parked in a lot downtown, which Upton is now checking on.

Carrie said that their marriage started to disintegrate after Seldon became more and more distant started feeling like she was living with a ghost.

Carrie also stated that Seldon told her he "wasn't done yet," so we gotta assume he's planning to hit another target.

- Where we at?

- Not that far, Sarge.

We're working on a rough timeline we haven't been able to connect Seldon to everything yet, but What we know he stole bacteria from the university lab, broke safety protocols CDC believes that's how our victim, Veronica Song, got infected.

Right, then he infected his coworker, Stuart Anderson, on purpose spoofed his emails and everything.

Yeah, then he goes back to ground zero, the apartment building we still haven't been able to tie the building to Seldon, but we have been able to tie victims two and three to the building.

They were there visiting friends recently.

From there, he went back to the CCU labs, set the place on fire, then volunteered to help the CDC so he could sabotage their research.

I had a buddy in Army Intelligence track Seldon's sat phone.

It's at a gas station right now, 4583 North Racine.

Upton's en route.

Let's go.

Intelligence, roll with me.

Phone's pinging in that gas station.

Keep eyes as we clear.

[HORNS HONKING.]

Chicago PD, stay down, stay down.

Get in your vehicle, sir.

Get in your vehicle.

Let me see your hands.

Get down.

Get down, stay down.

Hands up!

I need your hands up.

Turn to face me!

You're good.

Tucker, check inside.

We got the truck.

All right, move, move.

Hold, hold, hold.

Let's see your hands!

Get your hands up!

Hands.

Is it him?

Sorry, ma'am.

No, move.

- Clear.

- Detective, straight ahead!

Tucker, 12:00.

A man got inside.

It could be him.

- Did you make a positive ID?

- I don't know.

He was holding something in his hand.

Stay down.

I need you to shut the vehicle off and get your hands out of the window.

Get down.

He had something a canister, maybe.

Hands up!

Shut the vehicle off now!

- He can infect everyone here.

- Calm.

- Police!

- Vehicle off, hands out, now!

Hands up!

That's not the same make of vehicle.

No, I saw him.

I saw him, he had something.

[GUNSHOT FIRING.]

[GLASS SHATTERING.]

- Hold your fire!

- Hold your fire!

- Hold!

- Hands up!

Get your hands up!

Get out of the car!

We're good.

[SPEAKING SPANISH.]

It's just a can of pop.

You all right?

Lower your weapon.

Lower your weapon.

Look at me.

Give me your gun.

Give me your gun.

Let's go.

Walk away.

Sat phone was in the bed of the truck.

Seldon left it there deliberately.

Driver didn't speak English, moved fast.

Hey, how you doing?

I've been better.

All right, Detective Upton, she's gonna stay with you.

I don't want you talking to anybody till IRT gets here.

Just walk with her away from everyone.

Boss, Station's clear.

No sign of Seldon.

Sarge, two of Seldon's credit cards just popped up, both of them way across town from each other.

So he's playing with us.

Hey, Trudy.

Hi, you just missed Crawford.

- Oh, I bet he's thrilled.

- Uh, no.

He thinks everything's turning into chaos.

He wanted to pull all patrol from responding.

Wanted just tact teams.

- That's impossible.

- That's what I said.

The city's terrified.

Media's now reporting police are expecting another attack.

People are locking themselves inside their houses.

Tip lines are receiving a hundred calls an hour.

Every scared Chicagoan thinks they're seeing that guy on their street and one of them actually might be.

Yeah, well, Seldon is also deliberately creating false leads.

He's handing out his credit cards.

His financials have already popped at two separate locations, so we're gonna be chasing down hundreds of calls too.

I'm gonna need your help upstairs.

You got it.

I'll be there in a minute.

Thanks.

Hey, Williams, where are you?

Cover.

- Honey, what's wrong?

- Nothing, nothing's wrong.

I just finished a call a block away.

I just wanted to make sure I just I just needed I know.

It's crazy out there.

Okay, thanks.

Two more of Seldon's credit cards popped up.

One in Logan Square, one in Pilsen.

Patrol said the one in Logan Square was used by a homeless man in a 7-Eleven.

Yeah, this cell phone ping for Seldon is bogus.

He threw it in the back of a taxi.

Rojas is saying the same goes with the Uber booked online no one showed.

Sarge, we located the black 2002 Ford pickup.

The plates match.

Tact team is sitting on it, but nobody's in it.

Sarge, we got too many leads.

[PHONE RINGING.]

All right, enough.

Just put the phones down.

Put 'em down.

Kim, put it down.

We are not gonna be led on a wild goose chase, and we are not gonna be led into a panic.

Look, he's buying time.

We gotta get ahead of him now.

Well, patrol will stay in the present.

We'll hit every alert, every tip, every sighting like it's the real thing.

We'll loop in CPIC to work footage, before and after.

Well, there's still a hell of a lot we don't know.

So we're gonna get ahead by moving backwards.

I want a full timeline of Seldon's life for the past six months, month by month.

Let's go.

[CELL PHONE BUZZES.]

You want to hit the university?

Yeah, you know what, I'm gonna meet you there.

Okay.

Hey, nothing's changed since I called, but that's not a bad thing, you know?

It's just a waiting game at this point.

All right, she's young, and she's strong.

We gotta believe her body's gonna fight back.

Yeah, I just didn't want her to be alone if I know.

Is there still no family found?

Uh, no, I got patrol looking into it, but the whole department's in overdrive.

We still haven't been back to the station.

It's just call after call.

I've spent the last 24 hours telling people everything's gonna be okay when I'm not sure I believe that myself.

In it together?

All right.

I'm not going anywhere.

I'll keep checking on her.

Okay.

I'll check in with CPS.

They're good with tracking family, they'll help.

Okay, thank you.

I'll keep trying to find this guy.

- [CELL PHONE BUZZES.]

- Hey.

Hailey, we got a hit on Seldon.

Three weeks ago, a coworker of his saw him leaving some work lofts on Ashland.

We confirmed with them that he's been paying cash for a loft for the last month.

I'm on my way.

We move coordinated and quick.

ID, then subdue.

This target is believed to be armed.

The target is also believed to be in possession of a weaponized bacteria that can be fatal.

If you believe you're in the presence of this bacterium, you avoid contact, keep a safe distance, beads locked, but do not approach.

Understood?

[MURMURS OF AGREEMENT.]


All right, let's move.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC.]

Sarge.

Oh, my God.

Boss.

That's right in the middle of today's parade route.

All right, have CDC transport all of that to Med right away.

Jay, you and me.

Sorenstein this is Hank Voight, Chicago PD Intelligence unit.

I need you to shut down the parade right now.

Get everyone off that route.

Yeah, that's not gonna be a problem.

What the hell?

[DRAMATIC MUSIC.]

Never seen anything like it, all my years on the job.

Good thing about a terrified city there was no one was here for Seldon to infect.

Yeah, if this actually was the target, not just another diversion.

The man wants this city in a panic.

Now the first responders.

Keep us all occupied.

For what?

We don't know yet.

But if he's buying time, that means we still have time to get ahead of him.

Engine 51, Squad 3, Ambo 61, structure fire, reports of looting.

1340 Hazel Avenue.

Listen, we keep steady, we keep working our timeline.

All we need is to find his "why.

" That'll get us to his "where.

" All right, mm-hmm.

Thanks, Jay.

All right, Halstead's got another for June.

- Okay.

- Neighbors report a drastic change in behavior, say Seldon was quick to anger, quick to blame.

Apparently he got into a shouting match with one of his neighbors because their dog walked across his lawn.

Sounds like they almost came to blows.

Well, that fits with Carrie's timeline of their marriage ending.

She filed for divorce June 26th.

And there's his finances, I mean, those statements show the big spending spike in June.

He started buying more supplies, different supplies.

Right, and then he rents the work loft June 28th.

I mean, June's gotta be the break.

Got something from the university.

Two coworkers claim Seldon started bitching about science versus profit.

Not really anything new, but they said he started taking it personally, that his research wouldn't see the light of day.

Because of greed, that people would die.

The first conversation they could remember is, uh, early June.

That's it that's what we're missing.

That's gotta be the trigger.

Sarge we found Seldon's funding was drastically cut for the coming year.

- Okay.

- Funding was provided by a place called BRT Health Industries.

Okay, BRT, that's what Anderson was saying at the tailgate.

That's right, his funding was denied in June, and that's when he started planning.

BRT industries is the link between the apartment building and Seldon.

Lynn Messick in apartment 12, she worked for a consulting firm that rehabbed BRT's budget right before the decision was made to pull Seldon's funding.

Sarge, it all fits.

Seldon believed he was researching a disease that could kill the planet, thought funding was needed to create a treatment.

He was denied, the man snapped, and then he started trying to prove it to all these people who didn't believe him.

BRT Health Industries owns a building on the far West Side.

Boss, they're having an annual board meeting today.

Six board members flew in this morning.

Oh, my God, that's it.

That's what he's waiting for.

He's gonna hit the building.

I'll get every patrol member I can spare.

Tact team will be en route in two.

Loop in the rest of the team.

Whoever's there first moves in first.

Rojas, inform Med ASAP.

They got a treatment, stores of it should meet us there on-site.

Get on the horn with Fire.

We're gonna need help evacuating that building.

All I want is a nice, long bath and a vat of Purell.

[ALARM BEEPING.]

Engine 51, Squad 3, Ambulance 61, evacuation assistance, 2600 Roosevelt.

We just heard from CPD.

This is them they think Dr.

Seldon's hitting the BR building from the West Side.

All right, you heard her!

Let's move, move, move!

This is it!

Let's end this!

I hear you and we are making progress with what Seldon left behind and the work lost, but I'm sorry.

You just gotta give us some more time.

- Hey, we might haveomething.

- Hold on a sec.

Combination of ampicillin-sulbactam, ticarcillin/clavulanic acid, and fourth-generation cephalosporins.

Heather?

This culture started with 70 percent e-87 staph.

Then I dosed it with the new antibiotic cocktail.

It's attacking the virus.

It shrunk to 8%.

That's a treatment.

Dr.

Halstead?

Rojas?

Looks like we got something.

We'll replicate as quick as we can and send CDC scientists your way, but do anything you can to limit pool of contact.

[SIREN WAILING.]

[GUNSHOT FIRES, GLASS SHATTERS.]

[SCREAMING.]

Go, go, go, I got her.

Police.

Stay calm, stay calm.

Everybody make your way outside.

I'm going up, we gotta cover the exit.

Yeah, I'm on it.

Sir, hang up the phone.

Do you have a protocol to do a full building evacuation?

- Yes.

- I need you to execute that now.

- Is there another exit?

- There, to the right.

Police, get out of the way.

Where?

Where?

Is in there.

- [GUNSHOT FIRES.]

- [ALL SCREAMING.]

5021 George, I got shots fired on the sixth floor.

Come on, come on, come on.

Get out, get out.

No, stay, go that way.

Get up, get up, go outside.

Go outside, real slow.

No, no!

Do not come in here!

Okay, okay.

Detective Halstead, Chicago PD.

I'm not coming in.

He's killing us.

Please!

You shoot, and I will shoot.

Then I won't.

5021 George, advise responding.

I got eyes on the offender.

Sixth floor, southeast side of the building.

He has hostages.

Copy that.

Dr.

Seldon, I just want to talk.

Okay, can I come in there and do that?

No, no!

Do not come in.

It's either me talking or a team of men shooting.

Believe me, whatever you're here to do it's better with me in there, keeping them out.

What's it gonna be?

Okay, okay, come in, but slowly and drop the weapon.

Let me see it.

- Okay.

- Let me see it.

Okay, I'll give you my gun.

I'll give you my gun, okay?

Very slowly.

Hailey, I'm going in.

I'm gonna keep this line open.

Get Voight on the line.

Try to get eyes on him.

All right, here I come.

- Slowly.

- Yep, I'm moving real slow.

- Turn around, turn around.

- Okay.

Okay, slow, yeah?

- Close the door.

Now, drop that weapon.

Now, let go, drop it.

Good, now turn back around slowly, slowly.

Good, good.

Everybody just stay calm.

Everything's gonna be okay.

- Do it.

Stay on evac.

I'm with Upton.

Work with Fire, make sure this building's evacuated, then get a perimeter started.

Hostage mobile command one block out.

We've got an antibiotic that's proven viable we can administer on-site.

- Where do you want us?

- Great, behind those rigs.

I need you to talk to me.

Explain what we're doing here and I'll be able to help you.

- My brother's inside?

- He is.

I'm coming with you.

Just stay out of the way and follow my lead.

Okay.

Just be calm.

So why are we here?

What's going on?

How can I help you, Dr.

Seldon?

I don't need help.

I'm not a bad person, I-I I just needed to show them.

I needed them to see, so that the whole world could see.

Okay, see what?

See that this is how the world's gonna end.

Thousands of strains of bacteria that we don't know how to combat.

This this bacteria, it kills people so fast, they barely have time to know that they're dying.

But you see, cures need funding, and these people these people denied get your hands back on the table!

That's right, and they denied it because there's no money in it.

Oh, sure, they funded a Viagra substitute, ADHD medication, all while these diseases exist.

Diseases that could wipe out the whole world, so I I showed them.

I made one.

Yes, I killed a few to save the many, and now it's their choice again.

Now they choose.

See, now, it's a bullet or to trust me this time.

A-a bullet, or I cut them, I give them the bacteria.

And then my research, the the research that they didn't want to fund, that's what cures them.

Yeah, it's it's their choice.

A bullet to die or my research to live.

[GRUNTS.]

So how can I help you?

You want me to get the media here?

You want me to arrange funding?

No, no, no.

It's much too late for that.

It's time for you to decide, sir.

- What's your choice?

- Hold on, hold on, hold on.

I'll help you prove you're right.

Come on Dr.

Seldon.

I believe you, so let me do it.

Yeah, let me do it.

Let me do it.

Okay, back up.

Would you want to come with me?

Yeah.

All right.

Fear is a funny thing.

Some of the time, it brings out the worst in people.

But fear also brings out our very best.

We certainly saw that today.

Their love, loyalty, care, and kindness their support generosity, and appreciation.

Hey, this is for you, Mama.

And for a certain few among us, Fear brings out something different: their choice to be heroic.

Amanda.

To stand steady.

To hold on to each other.

It's gonna be okay.

To find a way to hold on to hope and to lean on each other like family.

Perfect.

Thank you.

Yes.

Look at this, man.

What?

Life.
