♪ Eyes, burning a way through me ♪

♪ Eyes, destroying so sweetly ♪

♪ Now, there is a f*re in me ♪

♪ A f*re that burns ♪

♪ This f*re is out of control ♪

♪ I'll burn it! I'll burn it! ♪

[music fades]

- [man wailing]
- [man 1] The Basilisk is down!

[man 2] That was one guy. How?

[man 3] The dick just sold us bad intel!

- [man 4] So many d*ad.
- [man 1] Call for back-up!

[man 5] He's on the move!

[man 6] He's heading straight
for Night City.

[man 7] Cyberskeleton!
Can't allow Saka to recover it!

[Falco] Well? Where now?

[David] Arasaka!

- [Falco] HQ? City Center?
- [David] That's right!

[Rebecca] What the hell for?

[David] We're saving Lucy!

[Rebecca] Why is she at Saka HQ?

[David] Faraday.
Rat bastard cut a deal with her.


Just gotta rest my eyes a sec.

For real? Jesus!

The meds are starting to wear off
faster and faster...


[Falco] Hey, folks.
Militech's multiplying.

Shit! Shake 'em off.
David's gotta take five.

- What?! Right now?
- Yup.

[Falco grumbles] Okay. All right!

If he needs five, I'll buy him five!

[action music]

- [tire screeches]
- [g*n]

Hold them on front, 'kay?

- Yes, ma'am! You leave 'em to me!
- [thuds]

- [g*n]
- [metal clanks]

[tire screeches]

[laughs] Way to go, old man!

[Rebecca] Yahoo!


[Falco] Shit, another swarm ahead!

Arasaka this time!

Okie-dokie! Barrel on through!

You know, this swarm looks pretty mad.
Better pull off.

Huh? Yo, come on!

[Kenichi] Militech's forces
are nearly wiped out.

The test subject is already in the city
and our recovery team is in position.

But this will be hell for us to cover up.

This is exactly what we deserved
for trusting a fixer with our investment.

[Kenichi] Based on his current trajectory,

we estimate a 74 percent chance
that this is his destination.

[Michiko] Here? But why?

[Kenichi] We're not sure.

He should have no knowledge
of our direct involvement.

[Michiko] Well, f*ck. Contact security.

[Kenichi] Ma'am? That would alert
the higher-ups.

[Michiko] We stir up a storm
and hide in the dust.

Christ, Faraday... so much for perfection.

[Faraday] Imagine that,

Arasaka counter intel
extending an invitation

to a lowly fixer like me.

Quite the promotion, wouldn't you say?
Unheard off, really.


Yet, even this leap, I consider only
a single step in my ascend.

Night City does not reward complacency.

[phone chimes]

[Kiwi] Faraday.

[Faraday] Kiwi. What's the hold up?

[Kiwi] David donned
the cyberskeleton as planned,

but didn't wipe out Militech.
Not completely.

[Faraday] Go on.

[Kiwi] Didn't think it possible,

but he's dippin' in and out
of cyberpsychosis...

gliding along the edge.

If David comes through without goin' full,
he's g*n' for us next.

I know it.

[Faraday] He's clearly resilient,
for a chrome junkie.

But it's nothing Arasaka's recovery team
can't clean up, I'm sure.

Maybe. But I'm not about to chance it.

Did my part, so I'm skippin' town.

Zip me my eds, and we're done.

Not quite. I'm en route to deliver
the runner girl to Arasaka.

I'll need you as backup.
Meet me at the drop point.

You'll get your cut then.

Besides, I'd hoped to see you
one last time.

We owe ourselves that much.

How sweet of you.

[Kiwi] What am I doing...

♪ And it's hard to know ♪

♪ Is there no way out? ♪

Life's short

♪ Why does it take ♪

♪ So long ♪

[voice prompt] Walk...


Don't walk...

- Don't walk.
- ♪ Blame someone ♪

I'm at the end of the line!

- Wakey-wakey, David!
- [Falco grunts]

[Doc] These immuno-blockers
are military-issued.

Nine times your customary dosage.

They should keep you
on the right side of crazy.

But they only delay the effects,
not erase 'em.

By the time you hit the last vial,
understand these.

Whatever's still left of you, they will...

will slingshot the other way...

- [groans]
- [Doc] and fly straight over the edge.

[intense dramatic music]



Goddamnit. They just keep comin'!

- Huh?
- [machine whirring]

[Rebecca whoops]

That's the shit!

- [David laughing]
- Huh?



[Gloria] You have to work hard
and rise through the ranks.

My son at Arasaka Tower top floor!
I can just see it.

You've got this, D.
You're the smartest person I know.

- [grunts]
- [electrical fizzling]

You're right, Mom.

I know I can, I'll do my best.

You got my word.
Arasaka, all the way to the top.


All right, David.

Let's go. To the top, then.

[David] I got these special meds from Doc.

If I start losing it,
I need you to sh**t me up

so I can keep it together.


David's meds. I don't think
they're gonna work anymore.

Yeah? So what's the plan?

Nothing's changed.
We knock on Saka's door.

With David in that kind of shape?

Gotta get him to Lucy.


She's the only one
who can maybe bring him back.

There's no one else!

[Kiwi] I'm not doing
any more work for you.

Is that so?

Such a shame.

- [g*n]
- [Kiwi gasps]

- [Faraday] My contract stipulates that
- [Kiwi groans]

...I get rid of anyone
who knows about the cyberskeleton.

No special exceptions. Even you.

- [Kiwi grunts]
- [shocked exclaim]

Go! After her!

Comin' up on the Tower!
The hell do we do now?

- Don't ask me, I don't f*cking know!
- [Falco exclaims]

David! Do the gravity thing!

[machine whirring]

[Rebecca] Woo-hoo!

Da-da-da-die, you corpo sickhead!



- Cut us a g*dd*mn break!
- Come on!

- [Falco] Did we lose 'em?
- [Rebecca] Most, I think!

[both] No! MaxTac!

[Falco] Three AVs?

Shit! They already tagged him as a psycho?

We're in a tight spot. We're only f*cked
if David doesn't get his shit together!

Ugh, you don't say!

MaxTac has been dispatched.

He said the authorities are treating this
as a cyberpsycho incident.

What a mess.

[Michiko] This has escalated
far beyond our field test.

That damn boy.

We need to stop him
before he makes matters even worse.

I'm afraid that's impossible
at this stage.

He has to burn out on his own.
No one can stop him now.

[Michiko] I can think
of one individual who can.

[Kenichi] Who might that be?

[Michiko] Adam Smasher.

[Kenichi] You're serious?

[Michiko] Utterly. Extreme situations
require extreme solutions.

[Kenichi] But still...
The time it would take him to...

- [Michiko] Not a problem.
- [Kenichi gasps]

[Michiko] He's here already.

Pending our field test, the cyberskeleton
was originally designated for him.

So if he can't use his new toy,
how fitting for him to destroy it?

Time to get gone.

Just drop put, why don't ya?

[David] What, are you afraid
of getting caught?

Coz I know I sure is shit ain't.


MaxTac freaks, come and get us!
Just f*cking try!


[David] What the hell? Hey! Shit!

No way! You're just gonna leave us here?

Momma! Mom!


[woman] That a man or a merc?

[g*n 1] Just keep sh**ting!

Wait! Araska is handling the rest.

Code AS. Pull it out.


Becca... How many vials have we got left?

Down to one last one.


Guess my clock's finally running out...

- Falco.
- [scoffs] Kiwi?

Huh? That two-timing bitch!
I'll f*cking k*ll her!

[Falco] Huh? What am I looking at here?

[Kiwi] Falco, listen.

Faraday, he, well... My time's ticking down.

- Got you too, did he?
- [Kiwi chuckles]

Yup. [groans]

I did tag his AV, though.
Sending you coords.

Follow 'em, you'll find the bastard.

Really expect us to trust you?

I know, I know.

[sighs deeply] Oh, Kiwi, look at you.

It just hasn't been your day.

[Falco] And Lucy?
She with Faraday right now?


Mhh, you want that corphugger d*ad,
blood for blood.

[Kiwi] Nah, it's not like that...

Taught Lucy never to trust a soul
in this city.

Everyone turns on you,
some point or other...

Just figure Faraday's
long overdue to an important lesson.

[exhales loudly]

Go get 'er for me.


- [device beeping]
- [gasp]

Kiwi is a flatline, bossman.

Nasty business...

[engine whirring]


That can't be David!

[Rebecca and Falco screaming]

Don't stop 'til we reach the loading dock!

[Kenichi] Faraday will be arriving
shortly to deliver the netrunner.

[Michiko] As I thought.
Martinez is after our fixer, not us.

I'll order the pilot to turn around.


keep them on course for the dock.
You'll meet them there.

I will meet them there [gasps]

You must have realized by now

that someone would have to take the fall
for this colossal f*ck,

and surely you knew it wouldn't be me.

- Still confused?
- [Kenichi gasps]

Make sure that mangy fixer
never makes it past the loading dock.

Not a single step.


You're up against the cyberskeleton.

Expect you'll have some fun, aye, Smasher?

It's a child's toy

reliant on antigrav training wheels.

Not even worth my time.

k*ll him, you fools!

f*re at will!

Where is he?

No one's there!

[David] Look, Mom...

I'm here, very top of Arasaka Tower.

All right. One last vial left. Hey, Doc...

Once you go screaming over the edge,
it's all over.

Ain't no f*cking coming back.

Doesn't matter if you're special or not.

[David laughs]

You were right.

But there's no other way... Not for me.

Faraday, it seems someone
didn't follow the plan.

I brought the runner girl, didn't I?

Alive, and worth
the full million as agreed.

You were given a leash
and chose to stray from it.

Do you what happens to dogs
who have a habit of misbehaving?

Is that a thr*at?

The data you seek is still in my hands.

You will not step one foot
inside the facility.

This is non-negotiable.

That would be very unwise of you.

With the information I have
at my disposal,

you must surely see you cannot afford
to keep me off your payroll.

Leave the girl and remove yourself now.

We'll send your payment as agreed.

But we have no further use for you

if you're unable to provide data
on the cyberskeleton.

In this, you have failed your assignment.

- [Faraday gasps]
- [Lucy groans]

[David] Lucy...




[indistinct overlapping voices]

[stammering, voice quivering]

[suspenseful music]

You see?

The cyberskeleton returned to you
as promised...


Oh no, you don't.

You ain't flatlining just yet.


Adam Smasher, hurry!

Go on, k*ll the boy!

Who the f*ck are you?

You f*ck' merc! Do your job!

My business is with the kid.

That's Adam Smasher?

So this is Adam Smasher in the chrome?

NC boogeyman of legend.

You're packing some pretty heavy a*tillery
for your size, boy.

I'm surprised you could string
two words together.

Likewise, choom.

Heard you went no-ganic full-borg,

so I gotta ask. Any brain left
in that chrome dome of yours?

You could say I'm special.

Well, so the f*ck am I!

- That a joke?
- [gasps]

- [engine droning]
- [grunts, gasps]

[Faraday] Trauma Team!

[man 8] This is 1-1-0-8-1-2 HQ.

It's the only way I could protect you

Just too many I couldn't save before.

My mom, Maine, and the others in our crew.

I couldn't let that happen.
Not to you, too.

But you never had to save me.

All I ever wanted was for you...

I ain't worth it, Lucy.

Besides you, I got nothing left.

I need you to see it through.

You can't even stand

You think you're special

Don't make me laugh!


- Falco! Turn back!
- No can do.

It was David's final request.

- [whimpers]
- If I turn around now...

he dies for nothing.

We already have our reward money.

David wants us to split it, you and me.

- [whimpers]
