01x07 - Asylum

[RACHEL] Previously on Titans...

[PRIEST] Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

Living with Bruce Wayne is gonna change your life forever.

- [DICK] I'm searching.
- [BECKY] For what?

- Who killed my parents.
- The police are doing their...

I have to be the one who finds them!

- Why?
- So I can kill them.

[SCREAMING]

[DR. ADAMSON] What's he seeing on the hallucinogens?

The deepest, darkest parts of himself.

How long till he's fully cooked?

- Within an hour.
- [MAN CONTINUES SCREAMING]

Good.

I want Dad to meet his new family.

Honey, I'm home.

When I was in Detroit, I was planning on leaving Robin behind.

- Why?
- When I put on that mask,

I become someone I can't control.

I want my parents back!

[KORY] What happened to him?

[DICK] He said he works for something called the Organization.

And they work for Rachel's father.

He seemed to have people everywhere.

- It's time to talk.
- I'm not talking to anyone but Rachel.

[RACHEL] I need to talk to him. Alone.

- [DICK] Don't think that's a good idea.
- Why?

'Cause I can't take care of myself?

- That's not the point.
- I need to find out who he is.

Why he's chasing me.

- I don't trust him.
- What's not to trust? The man's tied up.

One word from Rachel, and I'll walk in and put my foot through his face.

Dick, please.

[DICK SIGHS]

Five minutes.

Thank you.

Come in.

Child.

There's nothing to be afraid of.

Close the door.

Please?

We have waited a very long time for this moment.

What do you want from me?

To help you.

You think you're a monster.

That there's evil inside you scratching to get out.

You see it each time you look in a mirror.

In your dreams.

But you are not death, Rachel.

Quite the opposite.

You were not placed on this Earth to destroy, but to heal.

To save us.

I'll prove it.

Put your hands on this rended flesh.

Save me!

[GRUNTS]

No!

[HYPERVENTILATING]

- [GROANING]
- [GRUNTING]

[HYPERVENTILATING]

[SCREAMS]

[PANTING]

[SKIN SQUELCHING]

[WHEEZING]

[GASPING]

You will heal the world.

[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

How did you know she could do that?

[DR. ADAMSON] I know everything about her.

She will purify the world.

There's a prophecy that says Rachel will destroy the world.

An interpretation based on fear.

[GRUNTS]

What do you want with Rachel?

She will purify the world. [GRUNTING]

[SCREAMING]

I'm not gonna ask you again.

To reunite her with her father.

[GRUNTING]

[PANTING]

Who is he? Where is he?

I don't know. I swear.

[GROANS]

[GRUNTS]

You can't stop him.

Angela couldn't. Melissa couldn't.

No one can keep Rachel from him.

Who's Angela?

[DR. ADAMSON GRUNTS, PANTING]

You said she couldn't keep Rachel from him.

Who is Angela?

[GROANS]

Her mother.

Angela is her mother.

Now we're getting somewhere.

Let's talk about Angela.

- [BONES CRACKING]
- [SCREAMING IN PAIN]

[DOOR SHUTS]

[SIGHS]

He says your birth mother is still alive.

What?

He claims they've been holding her prisoner. He may be lying.

He says your mother's name is Angela Azarath.

They're holding her at some asylum.

Apparently, he and his people are dead set on keeping you two apart.

Why?

Some more blabber about Rachel's father and his divine mission.

I don't know.

Sounds like your mother isn't a fan.

My mom's alive. I could meet my mom.

We have to go. Now.

Even if he is telling the truth, this could be a trap.

At best, we would be marching into an enemy stronghold.

You've seen what these people can do.

No one's going anywhere until we take some time for recon.

What if they move her?
They know we have him.

I'm not risking all of our lives on his word.

I'm sorry.

Tell him he's wrong.

I wish I could. You know how I hate to agree with him, but...

All you ever talk about is finding out who you are.

You think we should go. Right, Gar?

Gar?

I'm sorry, Rachel.

Rachel.

[RHYTHMIC KNOCKING]

Go away.

Can I come in? Please?

[SIGHS]

So, you can heal people?

Maybe. I think so. Like you care.

- Rachel...
- I can't believe you're on their side.

Of all people, I thought you would understand.

Ever since my mom...

Ever since Melissa died, I've been alone. I don't have anyone.

You've got us.

You know what I mean, right?

Yeah, I do.

If I had even the slightest chance of getting my mom back, there's nothing I wouldn't do.

- But you said...
- Yeah, I lied.

I just said what they wanted to hear.

You get pretty good at that when you live with Dr. Caulder.

If you agree with people, they tend to leave you alone. [CHUCKLES]

- So...
- I'll go with you.

If your mom's there, we'll find her.

And, uh,

I'm thinking... [WHISPERS] We go in style.

[DICK] Public records show that the facility where Rachel's mom is being held is closed and abandoned.

Doesn't look like either one to me.

Nope.

Fourteen monitored exits.

All hooked up to CCTV and IR sensors.

Thermal scans showing upwards of ten security staff patrolling on the inside.

No heat signatures on the outer buildings, but another dozen are patrolling the grounds.

Okay.

So, option one, we walk up and knock on the door.

Option two, I blow down the door. Or option three...

Tunnels.

Connecting the main asylum to the decommissioned outbuildings.

We use them to get past the ground patrols.

Once inside, we'd still be pretty heavily outnumbered.

But I've faced worse.

Damn it!

You know, it's, like, a federal offense to use someone else's Uber account.

No, it's not.

Even so, Kory may kick your ass.

- Uh... You'll protect me.
- Is that so?

Yeah, it is.

[SIGHS]

I wonder how long they've had her.

Could be why she never came looking for you.

I wonder if she'll even recognize me.

Mothers always do. It's like with animals.

Mother wolves always know their offspring by their scent.

You saying I smell?

I think we'll have to try the south entrance away from the guards.

- I don't think it's a safe bet, but...
- But what?

I mean, we came this far, right? Be stupid to back out now.

- So, which way?
- Uh...

[SIGHS] After you.

[GAR] Oh, I can't believe we're doing this.

So, do you think she's my mom?

- [BUZZING]
- [GAR GRUNTS]

[GASPS]

What are the chances our two geniuses haven't gotten caught yet?

Next security sweep is in ten minutes.

Let's go.

Left when we get to the end of the tunnel.

Gar!

[DOCTOR] Don't worry. He's just taking a little nap.

Dick.

- We've got the girl, too.
- [GUN COCKS]

I don't want to kill either of them, but if you make a move, I will give the order.

Kory, wait.

Gas lines. You'll burn us all up.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[SIGHS]

[GRUNTS]

Hello, Mr. Grayson.

Please relax, Mr. Grayson.

I think you'll find it will go easier if you do.

Where's Rachel? If you've hurt her...

No one is getting hurt. Quite the opposite.

We're here to help.

We're going to give you something to help you settle down.

What the f*ck is that? What is that?

Don't you f*cking touch me! Don't you f*cking dare touch...

[EXCLAIMS]

Hey!

[GRUNTING]

[PANTING]

[GRUNTS]

Let me out of here!

Do you hear me? I know you hear me! Let me out!

[DOCTOR] Shouldn't be long now.

[COMPUTER BEEPS]

She's depleted. Proceed.

[COUGHING]

- Again.
- [GAR SCREAMING]

Now, now, Garfield. Stop resisting.

All that we want is for you to show us what you are.

[SCREAMING]

[PANTING]

Whoa! Oh, that felt good!

[DR. ADAMSON] Don't worry. It's going to get much, much better.

[SCREAMING]

[RACHEL] How did you get here?

Where's Gar?

You better not have hurt him.

You may be inclined to use your abilities to escape this situation, but if you do, it won't be just Gar that you place in danger.

What are you talking about?

Quite noble, how they came looking for you.

Where are they?

Undergoing evaluation.

They could be useful to us.

Who are you f*cking people?

We are but servants tasked with finding you, so that you and your father can be reunited.

You said my mother was here. Was that a lie?

Is she here? Is my mother alive?

Yes.

I want to see her.

No.

Why?

She tried to hide you from us.

To keep you from your father.

Perhaps it was a mistake keeping her alive.

We believed that she could lead us to you.

But we have you now.

Don't hurt her.

Well, I suppose that depends on you.

- [MALE NURSE] Subject ready.
- [DOCTOR] Shall we begin?

[WHIMPERING]

[GRUNTS]

[GROANS]

[PANTING]

[DOCTOR OVER RADIO] It's useless to deny who you really are,

Mr. Grayson.

This isn't who I am.

Of course, it is.

You can't change your true nature, Mr. Grayson.

One way or another, your actions will be judged.

[PANTING]

Remarkable. He's somehow resisting the drugs.

Hmm.

His heart rate and respiratory functions are elevated.

But his brain activity is barely affected.

Perhaps a mental technique he learned from his training.

Increase his dosage, %.

We risk stopping his heart.

Yes.

[SCREAMING]

- He's going into cardiac arrest.
- sh1t! Hold him. God damn it!

[EXCLAIMS]

[GRUNTS]

Open the door or I'll break his neck! Do it now!

[MUFFLED SCREAM]

[GRUNTS]

[PANTING]

[COUGHS]

[DOCTOR] Who are you running from, Mr. Grayson?


[GRUNTS]

[GLASS SHATTERING]

Hey.

[GRUNTS]

Hey. Hey.

Hey.

Hey.

[PANTING]

Hey.

How?

- [GRUNTS]
- [GROANS]

Why are you doing this?

I hate you.

I hate what you did to me.

[GRUNTS]

Bruce?

- [GRUNTS]
- [GROANS]

Wait.

Robin was the answer.

[COUGHS]

Robin was going to fix everything. But you ruined it!

[GROANING]

You blame Zucco. You blame Bruce.

No. No, it was you!

You made him into a monster!

It was your fault!

You did this to us! It was you!

You did this to me!

I hate you! It was your fault!

[DR. ADAMSON] Perhaps we should talk about your friends.

You could convince them to stop fighting us, to join us.

They love you.

They'll listen to you.

They'll never help you.

Rachel, the whole world is about to change.

You're going to want people you care about at your side.

Or, would you rather that they continue to suffer?

[GAR GROANING]

[SIGHS]

It doesn't have to be like this.

Their pain, their suffering.

Stop fighting us, Rachel.

All you have to do is call your father.

Call to him, and he will come.

You can put an end to all of this.

You could heal them like you healed me.

But I don't want you to be healed anymore.

I take it back.

[GROANING]

[BEEPS]

His daughter has escaped. Find her.

[CONTINUES SINGING INDISTINCTLY]

Are you Angela?

Who are you?

I'm Rachel.

Your daughter.

That's impossible.

Go back to whoever sent you and tell them it won't work.

No.

Look.

Please.

I've had it my whole life.

Oh, my God.

It is you.

Baby.

Oh, my God.

No. You can't be here. It's not safe.

You can't let them find you here.

I know. They're looking for me.

I've been here a long time.
There are places that we can hide.

No. My friends are still trapped. We need to find them.

No. No, we need to run. There are gonna be guards everywhere.

Don't worry.

We can do it.

Trust me.

- Rachel?
- Gar.

I have to get you out of here.

Is that...

Yeah.

[GIGGLES] Awesome.

- Can you walk? - Yeah.
- We have to hurry.

- Hey! What!
- Rachel!

- [ANGELA SCREAMS]
- Mom!

You're coming with me, girl. Right now!

[GROWLING]

[GROWLS]

[SCREAMING]

[SCREAMING]

[GROWLING]

[SCREAMS]

[IN SHAKY VOICE] I bit him.

[SIGHS] We have to get Dick and Kory.

[RACHEL] Dick?

Come on. We have to go.

What's wrong with him?

They must've given him drugs.

They may have broken him, Rachel.

They do that here.

Dick?

It's me.

I need you to hear me. You are stronger than them.

You're stronger than anyone I've ever met.

Now we have to get out of here.

We can't do that without you.

You promised!

You promised you'd never leave me.

You promised...

Yeah,

I guess I did.

[DOCTOR] She heals so quickly.

[NURSE] She must be capable of limited regeneration.

[DOCTOR] Let's find out just how limited.

Amputate her finger from her left hand.

[WHIMPERS]

[DOOR SLAMS OPEN]

- Keep your eye on the door.
- [NURSE] Sound the alarm!

[ALARM BLARING]

[GRUNTS]

Kory.

I got it.

- What's the tube?
- They intubated her.

I know how to take it out. This is gonna hurt.

- Ready?
- Mm-hmm.

Hey, look at me. Look at me.

[KORY GAGGING]

Hey.

Kory, just relax. The spasms will stop if you relax.

- You relax.
- You okay?

f*ck no.

Here.

[ANGELA] Come on. We can get out through there. Hurry.

[GUARDS INDISTINCT CHATTER]

[GUARD] There they are.

All right. You kids just stay right where you are.

I got this.

[GRUNTING]

- [BUZZING]
- [SCREAMS]

[BELLOWING]

[EXCLAIMS]

[SCREAMING]

[GRUNTING]

[YELLS]

[PANTING]

Get out of here.

Wait.

Listen.

You got enough? All we need is a spark.

[HURRIED FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING]

We're doing this?

It all has to end.

All right, then.

[ALARM CONTINUES BLARING]

[ALL EXCLAIM]

You gonna watch till the bitter end, or are you ready to get out of here?
