When did it start?

Four, five minutes ago.

[Sam grunting]

[Luke] Hey. Hey, hey.

[Sam grunts]

[yells]

[grunting]

Sam.

Sam!

[grunts]

[panting]

It’s okay.

It’s all right.

It’s okay. I’m here.

D-D-Did you know about this Compound V stuff?!

No. No.

How could Mom and Dad do that to us?

They thought they were giving us powers.

Well, I got a lot more than powers.

I got a broken fucking brain!

[Luke] Okay.

[cries, sighs]

I could’ve just been…

…regular.

I got news for you.

Drug or no drug,

you’d still be weird as fuck.

[chuckling]

None of that matters.

What matters is I’m your brother

and I love you.

Okay?

Okay.

Okay.

[Taser gun fires, zapping]

[groaning]

Sam! Sam! Stop it!

Okay?! No! Whoa!

[grunting]

Sam! No!

[grunting]

[yelps]

[guard] Oh, my God!

Oh, shit!

[Sam panting]

Stand back! Yeah, stand down!

Get him the fuck on the ground now!

Sam…

[yells]

[groans]

[panting]

[guard] Call for backup!

Yeah, please.

Call for backup!

[Cate] Sam.

Go to sleep.

[gasps, panting]

[Andre] Jesus. Fuck, are you okay? You wouldn’t wake up.

I’m fine. How long was I out?

I wasn’t sure whether to call

the ambulance or the 911.

Andre.

I just…

I’m fine. Andre, I’m fine.

Really.

Yeah?

I just pushed too many people. That’s all.

Okay.

[both exhale]

Um, can you go get my pills from over there?

Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Thanks.

[exhales]

U-Uh, the blue ones, on the left. Thanks.

What you did was stupid, Cate.

Could’ve given yourself a fucking aneurysm.

Let me rewrite that for you.

“Thank you, Cate, for having the brilliant idea

to ping my phone

and then save me from my stone-cold idiocy.”

That…

that’s a good rewrite.

What they did to that poor janitor was so fucked-up.

Yeah.

Who were they?

I don’t know.

[inhales sharply] But I found something.

[Cate gasps]

Holy shit.

That’s Sam.

Yeah.

He’s alive?

Luke was telling the truth?

That first night,

Sam was trying to escape…

…Marie and I stopped him.

You couldn’t have known.

So what are we gonna do?

For now? Nothing. We lay low.

Fuck that. No.

Luke’s brother is being tortured in this…

whatever it is a-and…

No, Sam needs to get out, and we need to get him out now.

How?

We use our fucking powers!

How did that work out for Luke?

If you charge in there, you’re going to get caught

and then God knows what and then…

Cate, Cate, Cate!

We just have to stop and think about it for a second.

Cate! No!

I could make you stop.

Okay.

I could do it.

So make me stop.

You’re not going to.

Not to me.

Please don’t do anything stupid.

I can’t lose you, too.

No, it’s not an eating disorder.

It’s how I get small.

Yes, my mom knows. Yes, I’m in control.

You’re in control?

I’m fine.

You were so tiny

you could barely move.

Okay, Marie, it’s not a big deal.

You have a daughter?

I wanted to tell you,

after that interview last night… [exhales]

I’m so proud of you, Marie.

Thanks.

I’m not sure what I did.

When that bottle blonde ambushed you

with that shit about your sister. [scoffs]

That was on purpose, by the way.

Who knows if it was even true.

What? Why?

Because it’s better ratings if you cry on camera.

But you didn’t let her get to you.

You stayed tough, showed poise.

Thanks.

And what a bitch.

Ugh.

Huge bitch.

[chuckles softly]

Mm.

So, listen, I want you to come with me

to this Brink fundraiser tonight.

Could meet some alumni, big donors.

Um…

I-I…

[chuckles]

[chuckles] I-I wouldn’t know what to do.

I’ve never been at…

What if she has hep C?

She-she doesn’t have hep C.

That should be you up there.

I-I know. You’re right.

Most important moment of your career.

I’m sorry.

You know what

was going through my head when you didn’t show?

I was thinking about calling hospitals.

I fucked up.

I slept through my alarm, and, uh,

I let you down.

It’s not about me.

It’s about your future and you caring about your future.

I can’t be the only one who gives a damn.

No, no, y-you’re not. You’re right.

You’re not. You’re not.

The board is voting on the new rankings tomorrow.

You’re coming with me to the fundraiser tonight,

and you’re gonna butter the ass of every trustee

with your tongue. Got it?

Yes, sir.

Dad, um…

If I could do something…

heroic, like, actually help people,

that’ll be good, right?

[Ibarra] Please welcome Polarity.

[Polarity] Thank you for having me, Professor Ibarra.

[indistinct chatter]

[music playing faintly]

[Justine] Emma!

Emma, wait up. Can you just hold on a second?

Look, I’m trying to say I’m sorry.

[sighs]

Your eating disorder is your truth, and…

It’s not. It’s how I get small.

I had no right to co-opt your story.

Okay? I apologize.

You filming this?

I want everyone to know how sorry I am.

Honey!

No.

I have been looking all over for you.

Did you forget? Huh?

Tonight’s the gala. Come on.

[indistinct chatter]

[Emma] Wait, this is nicer

than Sophie Green’s bat mitzvah invite,

and she had BTS sing “Hava Nagila.”

Tickets must have cost a fortune.

How’s your eating?

You are on your own now.

You need to be careful about your calorie intake, okay?

Are you keeping your food log?

Yes, Mom, I am completely balanced.

You look an inch or two shorter than usual,

so you might need to add 50 calories.

Okay, I’m just… I’m just gonna check your height.

I have a measuring tape here somewhere…

Mom, do not measure me.

Sorry.

Fine.

I saw that skinny bitch’s YouTube on you.

How are you doing?

Had better days.

Well, she was fired from Fatal Seduction

’cause apparently her acting’s for shit, if that helps.

It doesn’t.

Wait, she was?

[laughs] Yes.

I mean, it doesn’t. I mean, honestly, I just want to…

…just want to curl up and die.

I mean, everyone just…

…stares at me.

Okay. Honey…

listen to me.

When your father left me for that Barbie-titted child

or when I was fired from the Vought Shopping Network,

did I curl up and die?

No.

No.

Okay? I remade myself.

And that is exactly what we’re gonna do here for you tonight.

Mom, what do you mean?

[Tiffany] What do I always say?

[Emma] Oh. “Pee after sex”?

[Marie] Cate.

Marie.

I haven’t seen you since…

I just wanted to say I’m sorry.

Luke was so nice to me.

You mean until he went berserk?

But thank God you single-handedly stopped

that monster’s “murderous frenzy.”

You saw the interview.

I’m sorry.

I know Luke wasn’t…

No, that’s just it.

You didn’t know Luke.

How funny he was,

how much he loved his family.

Pretend I don’t know your age.

You did great out there.

Yeah.

I don’t know.

Lying about my family felt pretty shitty.

These people don’t want to hear the truth,

and you don’t want to say it.

Lucky Jordan doesn’t have laser eyes.

Be careful. With Luke gone,

this free-for-all for number one is gonna get ruthless,

[Tiffany] Earth to Emma.

[chuckles] Sorry, this one’s head is in the clouds 24/7.

[chuckles]

Emma,

this is Courtenay Fortney.

Oh, s… It’s a pleasure to meet you.

[Tiffany] She is a senior producer at Vought.

She ran Super in America,

Citizen Starlight…

Wow.

…last night’s interview with your roommate Marie.

Oh, Marie’s your roommate? Oh, I didn’t know that.

Yeah, real bottled lightning there, huh?

Yeah, she’s great.

[chuckles]

Anyway, uh,

Courtenay and I have been DM’ing the last couple days,

and, um, she wants to talk to you about…

maybe starring in her next reality TV show.

[stammers] Wait, really?

Little Cricket. Fun.

Wholesome. Sunshine.

Mm.

But no one knew about the tragic underbelly.

Sorry, “tr-tragic underbelly”?

It’s a rebrand.

Oh, it’s a complete and total rebrand, right?

Mm-hmm.

So, Little Cricket’s dead. RIP.

Now it’s “meet Emma,

teen making her way at God U.”

Only now, she’s battling her own sort of internal supervillains.

[Tiffany] Mm.

From the body image stuff,

the eating disorder…

The eating disorder.

Yes.

And, um, you know, uh, society’s cruel notion

of female perfection, right?

Yeah, isn’t that stuff all a little personal?

[Courtenay] No, no, that’s the point. The point.

‘Cause we’re pulling it all out of the shadows.

Yeah.

And if I’m being honest with you,

I’m a little sick of Vought’s glossy bullshit.

Uh-huh.

I want fucking emotion.

I want real pain. Okay?

Right now, we’re working with

Eaten Alive

or Feeling Small.

[chuckles] Uh, it’s a… You know, it’s a starting-off point.

We-we can develop it, honey.

[Emma] I’m sorry.

Ex-Excuse me, I have to…

I have to use the restroom.

[Jordan] I don’t like to ring my own bell,

but I am putting up the best stats of anyone here.

[grunts]

Forensics, combat.

Mm, but you don’t like to ring your own bell?

Look, I know how it works.

I know that the trustees decide the rankings.

[sighs]

Look, I’d love your vote.

I like you, Jordan. I just wish I liked your numbers.

Q Rating, Name Recognition, Social Trending… all down.

Well, Brink always said those aren’t the numbers that matter.

He’s not here anymore.

[Paul] Hi.

We’re Jordan’s folks.

Paul. My wife Kayla.

Mm.

Nice to meet you.

Kyle Vogler. You have a fine kid.

A real go-getter.

Don’t let him fool you.

He was a holy terror as a boy.

Uh, we’re from Rochester.

Where are you from, Kyle?

[Kyle] Oh. Uh, here and there.

[grunts softly]

[grunts]

[grunts]

Want me to run the water or something?

I’m really sorry, Emma.

We’ve all been there.

No, I mean…

for everything.

[scoffs] I don’t want to just be roommates.

And I don’t pity you.

Like, at all. I wish I was like you.

You’re fucking badass. And I…

I know this is probably too little, too late,

but I’d-I’d really like us to be…

…friends.

[whispers] Thank you.

I-I don’t know if I can… if I can pee like this though.

[shushes]

[urinating]

Just let it happen.

So, when he was in third grade, there was this girl, Ruby.

Don’t embarrass him.

No, it was forever ago.

Jordan used to chase Ruby around the playground,

trying to kiss her. [chuckles]

Try getting away with that this day and age.

[Kyle chuckles]

Until one day,

Ruby whacks him clean in the face with a Noir lunch box.

Knocked his front tooth out.

Now, that’s spirit.

I used to say,

“Jordan and Ruby,

they’re gonna be husband and wife one day.”

Whatever happened to her, Jordan?

Well, Daddy, we used to try on prom dresses together

in high school.

So maybe we can be wife and wife.

Sorry about this. He can get dramatic.

Nothing to apologize for.

You got a great kid here.

I’m just gonna let you catch up.

[Courtenay] Oh, absolutely.

Um, you’re the star of the show.

Of course we want to… hear your notes.

Okay, so…

like, maybe it doesn’t have to be, like…

uh, like, a cautionary tale or a…

I mean, like, why can’t I be, like, inspirational?

I mean, not like Queen Maeve but…

I mean, like Queen Maeve, you know?

[chuckles softly] Baby, you’re not like…

You got to work with what you’ve got.

But it’s k…

I mean, it’s exploiting me.

I think, in the real world,

everybody uses everyone.

And I think that this could help you in a million ways.

You know she taught me how to do it?

How to stick my fingers down my throat.

Until I vomited bile.

[quietly] Go fuck yourself.

[Courtenay] Holy shit.

This is fan-fucking-tastic.

[sighs] You’re gonna need a whole nother room

for all the People’s Choices.

[Polarity] You know, I’m working on my charitable contributions

for the calendar year.

And you are still chairwoman

of Vought for Tots, right?

Mm.

Uh, excuse me. Uh, I got to hit the bathroom.

All that champagne.

Uh, come right back.

Of course. Yes, yes.

Hey.

What-what-what are you doing?

What, I can’t buy a ticket?

[chuckles]

You-you-you pushed somebody for the free booze.

Wow.

That’s offensive.

Okay?

I can’t believe that you would…

Yes. Yes, I did.

I did that.

If everyone’s gonna be worshiping Brink

and shitting all over Luke,

then I at least want to get some Grey Goose out of it.

Hmm.

Should we talk about our intercourse situation?

Uh…

Whoa, sorry.

That sounded so bad. Um…

Yeah. Yes.

Yes.

Just not-not-not now. Later.

Not now.

Okay. Okay. [chuckles]

[chuckles]

But yeah.

Okay. [chuckles]

[whispers] “Intercourse.”

[chatter in distance]

Hey.

What’s up?

I’m Andre.

Yeah, I know who you are.

You’re Cricket, right?

Emma.

[chuckles] I won’t puke all over your shoes.

Yeah, I saw that video.

Fuck that girl.

Freshman class is savage this year.

You know, tell you the truth,

I, uh, wanted to talk to you.

You want to talk to me?

[Paul] We really did come just to show our support.

Not an easy drive, FYI,

but Dr. Cohen says we got to meet you halfway.

Paul, not here.

Point is, we’re trying.

I’m not a boy, Dad.

Not all the time.

And I’m sorry that you hate that.

But you are.

You’re my firstborn son.

The day you were born was the best day of my life.

I thought we were giving you a gift with Compound V.

You did give me a gift.

Can we please not talk about this?

For you, maybe.

I’m no bigot.

I get a lot of kids don’t have a choice.

But you do.

You can be a boy forever if you want.

Sometimes I think you change into a girl just to spite me.

Paul, stop.

I’m just…

…the kid addicted to their PlayStation.

Who goes to Olive Garden just for the breadsticks,

who binges Property Brothers.

I’ve never changed, Dad.

I’ve always just been me.

[Emma] What the fuck?

Like, what the fuck?

Like, what the fucking fuck?!

Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

What are they doing down there?

I mean, fuck, could they do that to us?

Are we in danger? I mean, should we tell someone?

I don’t know what we’d say. All I got is this

and what Luke told me before his murder-suicide.

It’s not exactly credible.

But what I do know is that we need to go down there

and we need to find out where they have Luke’s brother.

Mm.

But…

I can’t do it without getting busted.

But maybe…

Oh, shit!

I mean, saying it out loud,

I know it sounds like a bad fucking idea,

so you should forget I said anything.

No, I’m totally, totally in, dude.

‘Cause it is, like, life-or-death dangerous.

And you’re a freshman

and you are not even on the Crimefighting track.

You know what, just forget I said anything.

Yes.

Our beloved Brink’s death

was not just a tragedy.

Did I do something to piss you off?

No.

Then what? Because all you’re doing is fucking up.

I have a different kid all of a sudden.

I’m trying to be a hero, Dad.

What are you talking about?

I didn’t sleep through my interview.

There’s some fucked-up shit going on,

and that-that’s why Luke killed Brink.

Because there’s-there’s this underground hospital

where they keep everybody and…

Who else have you told?

Nobody.

Don’t say

another fucking word about this.

You hear me?

You’re gonna get yourself killed.

Y… You know?

[man] Hey! Polarity!

[laughs] Hey!

Kevin.

There you are.

Me and the boy want to chop it up.

[Kevin] Oh.

[Emma grunts]

[pants] Whoa.

A tiny girl is such an interesting choice.

[stammers] Why would I do that? What does it mean?

Uh, I don’t understand the question.

Well, you’re not real. You’re a manifestation.

But why would I imagine you? [chuckles]

No, I’m r… I’m real!

Prove it.

How?

What’s the name of the stuffed animal I loved more

than anything when I was little?

I have no idea.

What’s the name?!

Dipdop!

How ’bout Dip… uh, Dipdop?

How did I break my arm in second grade?

Fuck, man, I don’t know.

Tell me!

[stammers] On a bike!

Who-who the f-fuck knows, man?

What’s the name…

…of my all-time favorite movie?

Well, you’re a white guy, so…

Uh, Godfather, Star Wars or Shawshank.

Waterworld.

Waterworld?

[laughs] Jesus.

[chuckles] Wait.

You’re real.

For real.

[laughing] Holy shit.

You do know this is the dumbest test ever, right?

[laughs]

Wha-What are you… what are you doing here?

You could get in big trouble.

Sort of scouting ahead.

For what?

For you.

To get you out of here.

Oh.

Uh…

No, I don’t… I don’t think so.

No?

You are literally almost in a dungeon.

Oh, it’s not so bad.

Uh…

I have a… beanbag.

Okay, a beanbag is not a compelling reason

to stay captive, Sam.

I’ve tried.

I’ve tried to get out before, but people get hurt.

I get mixed-up.

I just… I started some new meds.

I think it’s better if I stay here.

But thanks for coming by.

Your brother sent me!

Luke?

He did?

Yes.

He wants to get you out, so…

I mean, I guess I could give you

the codes to all the security doors.

They don’t think I pay attention.

But I do.

You know the fucking codes?

I just knew you’d be great at this, Marie.

Bet you scored a million in pledges.

You’re a fucking superstar. You saved my ass.

Your ass needed saving?

A dean’s whole job is raising money.

After Golden Boy, the donations were going down the toilet.

And so was I.

But then one look at that smile of yours

and their wallets just cracked right open.

Brownnoser, one-upper.

Mommy and Daddy’s perfect little hero.

Yeah, well, that’s definitely not me,

because my parents are dead.

Because I killed them.

You happy?

Bullshit.

I didn’t know I had powers

until my first period.

I couldn’t control the blood,

Dad came in. Same deal.

Fuck.

Yeah.

I’m the last person who thinks they’re a hero.

We were camping.

I was nine.

My parents were setting up the tent.

My little brother kept kicking at my shins,

so I grabbed him by the arm and I told him to go away

and never come back.

So he did.

He just walked right into the woods.

That was the first time my powers showed up.

I didn’t know.

Jesus.

There was a… search party.

Dogs. You know?

It went on for weeks.

But…

nothing.

My mom never touched me again.

Neither did my dad.

[stammers]

I had no idea.

I’m so sorry.

It is not your fault.

Your parents shot you up with a dangerous drug

when you were a baby

to make a buck off you.

No, my parents weren’t like that.

Yes, they were.

They did this. You didn’t.

Don’t spend a fucking minute crying over them.

I killed my grandpa with my powers.

No, you didn’t.

Yeah, I know. I was just feeling left out.

at the end of the world

and finding your humanity.

And drinking your own pee.

[chuckles]

[Emma continues laughing]

So, I guess they’ll come get the tray when you’re done and…

…then I’ll see you whenever?

Hope so.

Me, too.

Oh, sorry.

Um…

You want some?

Oh, can’t. If I eat, I…

Like Alice in Wonderland.

Exactly. Yeah.

Except with a lot more puking.

Sorry, I don’t… That’s gross.

[mutters]

You’re the furthest thing from gross.

You’re, uh…

You’re pretty.

And brave. I mean…

You’re so fucking brave.

Thanks.

I’m not at all, though.

You’ve gotten closer to rescuing me than Luke ever did.

The pretty thing, you were probably born with.

Or maybe cosmetic surgery.

Oh, no.

What is it?

Hey! Guys, uh…

[whispers] I fucked up.

What did you do?

It’s about her roommate.

Emma?

Who the fuck is Emma?

I-Is she okay?

I think she’s stuck.

Stuck?

Wh… [chuckles] Where?

You know where.

Andre.

You promised.
