Gen V - S01E05 - Welcome To The Monster Club

Original release date: October 13, 2023

Marie and her friends awaken to find themselves at a party with no memory of how they got there. While evading capture, Sam finds Emma and Marie, but they do not recognize him. Cardosa meets with Shetty to discuss his creation of a virus meant to control Marie’s powers, but she refuses to involve her. Cate claims Rufus is responsible for their amnesia and leads Jordan, Andre, and Marie in confronting him, but lose track of him while Andre faints. Emma realizes she and Marie already know Sam, but were forced to forget him. While seeking him out, Marie removes a tracking device from her neck and tells Cate her suspicion that Shetty and Rufus are responsible for their amnesia. Cate apologizes and forces Marie to change the subject. Realizing Marie forgot a recent conversation they had, Jordan goes to re-confront Rufus. Emma finds Sam, who reveals Cate is the culprit after learning she used her tactile mind control power to make Luke forget Sam’s existence. Emma calls Marie to tell her and Jordan the truth. Andre almost kills Rufus when a tearful Cate arrives to reveal her deception and restore his memories.

[Shetty] That’s the sum total of your searing insight… that Sam skull-fucked Bob here?

This is Greg.

[Shetty] Find Sam. I want the whole security team on this.

You saved me.

[Emma] Where are we?

Old drive-in movie place.

I guess then it’s just us together.

I heard you’re a psychic.

You’re looking for your roommate, but she’s not the only girl you’re looking for.

[high-pitched tone]

What the fuck?!


[Jordan] Wh-What were you thinking, asking him for help?

Since when do you care about anyone not named Jordan?

Tek fucking Knight is on campus. He fucks people up.

How long have you been eating Golden Boy’s girlfriend’s hole?

[Jordan] This school has a fucking Mengele Health Clinic.

We don’t know who’s in on it.

[Sam] Dr. Cardosa.

He hurt me and he won’t leave me alone.

You have to kill him!

Just let my family go.

You’re all fucking puppets!

You’re-you’re one of them!


[Marie] Emma!

[Sam] Let me go!

We’re gonna make it right.

[sighs softly]


Hey, Cate?


[sighs] What’s wrong?

[rumbling intensifies]

Where are we?

You don’t remember?

Do you?


[dripping continues]

[rumbling stops]

What is that?

[soft whooshing]

[Andre] Watch your step.


[indistinct chatter in distance]

music playing in distance]

Are we at Dusty’s house?

[alpaca bleats]

[Andre] Yeah, it’s Dusty’s.

Hey, Sloane.

[alpaca grunts]

Ooh, hi, guys. [grunts]

Wish I could remember.

Seems like it was a pretty fucking awesome party.


I’ll say.

Oh, shit! I just… Sorry, I just thought…

Holy shit. Sorry, oh,

Is this that… we’re sorry about that.

Right on. I just thought,

We’re just leaving. We’re just leaving.



[door closes]




I’m just gonna…


Um, I, uh,

I think this is yours.

Yeah. Yup.


Look, this is gonna sound super fucked-up and weird, but I don’t remember what happened last night.

Oh, my God. Neither do I.


Where the fuck are we?

No idea.

Did we…

[Andre] Dusty, you in there?

[Emma exhales]

[Marie] Emma?

I hate this fucking dream.

This is real.

I think.


[panting] Okay. Okay.

Do your girl a solid and choke me out of my fucking misery?



Then find me a place to puke.

[Jordan] Okay, look, seriously, Andre.


I don’t remember anything.

So how do you know whether you did it or not… have the sex with Marie?

Okay, that’s not…

I don’t blackout, ever.

I mean, I could take a whole case of Beam to the face and be fine.

Why your chonies twisted over this?

Marie’s fly, nice in a fight, and far as I know, of legal age.

Is it… It’s a Black thing, isn’t it?

Oh, my God.

It’s a Black thing.

Leave him alone. It’s sweet.

I think you guys make a cute couple.

Thanks, but this whole fucking morning is weird.

You know what day it is?

It’s, like… Friday.

It’s fucking Saturday.

Hold up. It is… fucking Saturday.

Guys, look, it’s not that I don’t remember the party or Marie.

I-I mean, I don’t, but more importantly…

There are days that I am missing.

Like, huge gaps in my memory.

Mine too.

What the fuck is going on?

Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!

[chanting and music fades out]

I mean… you’re trending.

For flashing my giant white ass to the world.

Did you know you could do that?

Get big?

Unless it’s none of my business, which, it’s not. Never mind.

No, I’ve known ever since the Buster Beaver incident.

Google at your own peril. My mom called me a monster, then made me swear never to do it again.


That’s horrible.

[short chuckle]

[phone vibrates]

Exactly why this is going straight to voice mail.

[sighs] Okay.


How long have you been snogging Jordan?

I don’t even know how to answer that.

Is a male asshole tighter than a female asshole?

Jesus, Emma.

Emma! Are-are you okay?

I was out of line, and I’m so sorry that I left you, especially after you stopped me from doing something terrible.

But I’m-I’m fine now, and I know it sounds weird, but I was so happy to smell your throw-up because it meant that you got away from…

Why are you looking at me like that?

Emma, it’s-it’s me, Sam. The-the Woods, the… the-the Stardust Drive-In.

Look, hey, hey, hey, hey, Sam?

That’s your name?

And you’re-you’re Marie, the… the blood girl.

I think you’re confused.

Maybe you saw us on TV or TikTok or something?


You don’t actually know us in real life, and-and… we don’t know you at all.

They made you forget.

Who’s they?

Wait, is… is someone after you, Sam?

I mean, do you need help?

Emma, there are dangerous, evil people at that school.

People that don’t want you to know about me or the truth, and you-you can’t trust anyone.

But we can trust you?

No. No.

No, she’s right.

I wouldn’t trust me, either, not after what I did.

I’m gonna find a way to fix this.

I’m gonna make you remember.

Remember what?

That you’re a hero.

A real one.

That guy’s fucking crazy.


Kind of cute, though, right?

I don’t think it’s that weird.

Toe socks are weird, Emma.

That guy had literal blood under his fingernails, and it wasn’t his.

God, your powers are fucking bonkers.

Wait. When am I gonna get my period again?

Holy fuck, Emma.

What? I lost track.

You’re insane.

Uh, I mean, next Friday, though.

Fucking thank you.

[Cate] Marie?

Oh, you go. I have to shower and put on actual clothes.


Did you, uh… did you black out last night?

[scoffs] I-I don’t really think that’s any of your business.

[Cate] Marie, we all blacked out.

And not just the party. The-the past few days.

Think about it. I blew off my interview with Hailey Miller, but I don’t know why.

I remember Tek Knight being here, I remember talking to him, but I don’t remember why.

There was a kid just now.

He acted like he knew me and Emma.

What kid? Another student?

Sam something. I-I’ve never seen him.

Unless you have and forgot. What’d he want?

To save us. From someone at the school, from the school itself.

What the fuck?


Fuck you do to us, Dusty?

Hey, Jordan, he’s just a kid.

Dusty’s not a kid. He’s, like, 28.

Yet I still got a dick like a hairless caterpillar.

Fuck my life.

I think I know who did this.

Rufus was here last night.


Of course it’s him.


I sort of… blew his dick off.

He nearly killed my family, Indira.

He’s far more trouble than he’s worth, and Golden Boy is dead anyway.

The point is, I’m done with Sam.

He’s not my problem anymore.

I’m tired of babysitting psychopaths.

Babysitting psychopaths is literally your job.

Those kids found out about him.

Those kids have been handled.

They won’t be a problem.

Come on. You know it’s just a matter of time before they find out about everything else we’re doing down here.

I am this fucking close to perfecting the virus, a viable way to control them for good.

But if they discover that?

I’m not paid nearly enough to die for this shit.

So you want a raise?

No, that’s not what I…

So why don’t you tell me what it is you do want?

Because we both know you’re not going anywhere.

Cutting up Supes and seeing how they tick is a skill that won’t quite shine on your LinkedIn profile.

I want the girl.


Her abilities are the rarest I’ve ever seen.

She doesn’t understand how powerful she really is.

She’s the perfect subject, could speed up my timeline.

She is special.

But no.

You’re not the only one interested in Moreau.

She has a benefactor, and because of that, she’s strictly off-limits.

For now.

[Andre] So what you’re saying is that Rufus has to piss sitting down forever.

You do it on purpose?

No, it was an accident.

I’m not even sure how I did it.

He fucking deserved it.

Why were you even talking to him?

I don’t remember.

I was looking for something.


I met him in Intro Psych freshman year.

He said he liked my gloves.

And then… three days later I woke up in a random bed with a camera pointed at me.

He saw I was awake, smiled, and said, “Make this weird, and I’ll wipe you again.”

[Marie] Holy fucking shit.

Cate, did you tell anybody?

And say what?

He had me on camera consenting.

It doesn’t matter. I don’t even remember it, so…

Your body fucking remembers.

Are you… Are you okay?

I should’ve known better, and now I do, so…

This is exactly his M.O.


So, I get him coming after me for… revenge or whatever, but why go after you guys?

[Jordan] Where’s Andre?

Oh, shit. Rufus.

He’s gonna kill Rufus.

[indistinct chatter]


I knew it was you! Oh, my God.

No, girl, you were litty last night! Yeah, no, you got that big Supe energy!

[♪ Cheyenne Jolene: “Born With It”]

[laughing] Yeah.

♪ Born with it ♪

♪ Ain’t never stopping it, yeah ♪

♪ Born with it ♪

♪ Just got the energy, yeah ♪

♪ Born with it ♪

♪ I was born with it, yeah, yeah ♪

♪ Born with it. ♪

You know, this is a fucked-up situation, but…

I just want to say it doesn’t need to be weird.

B-Between us, I mean.

[laughing] Oh, oh.

No, you don’t… you don’t need to say or do anything.

‘Cause that scumbag mind-raped us.

And we weren’t acting like ourselves.

Yeah. I hear you, um, but…

It’s all good.

It’s cool. We’re cool.

Yeah, yeah. [chuckles]

Totally. We are cool.


There’s Rufus.

[Marie] What’s he doing with Shetty?

[Jordan] Let’s find out.

Wait, wait, wait, wait.

Not till he’s away from Shetty.

What? You’re the one who wanted to report this piece of shit.

I know. I know, but… I don’t trust her.

I don’t why, but…

I am sure.

What were you talking to Shetty about?


Benny! What the fuck, man?!

Rufus gave me 20 bucks to take his shape.

I don’t fucking know.

You know, I’m allowed to do it when I have permission, man.

♪ Yeah! Yeah! ♪♪

Good job. I think you lost ’em.

Get the fuck out of here!

I never touched Marie.

Okay, that psycho attacked me.

Yeah? What about Cate?

Did she attack you, too?

Actually, yeah.

Fucking Jumanji.

Well, how about you explain to me what you did to the rest of us and why, and maybe I’ll consider not putting you to sleep for good?

[woman] Dusty’s parties hit different.

[Marie] Em?

Guess who broke the top 100!

What are you talking about?

The rankings.

[chuckles] I jumped up to 88.

Are you fucking serious?

Yeah, all these years, my mom’s been like, “Don’t get big. It’s weird and gross.”

But now I have, like, 20 voice mails about doing a Giant Cricket show.

Is that what you want?

Oh, fuck, no! I mean, I don’t know.

I mean, my mom can just eat a giant bag of dicks.

I’m just done being her clown, you know?

But you know what I really want in this moment?

Is to pick a fit and then to hear about your new boyfriend-girlfriend, them-friend.

Jordan said… “We’re cool.”

What’s that supposed to mean?

They changed their mind.

Or they think you did.

Did you?

I don’t know.

Oh, my God, Mar, it’s not that hard.

Do you like Jordan? Do you want to hang out with them?

Do you want to talk to them?

Do you want to put your mouth on their mouth and other fucking body parts?

I mean, come on. This isn’t quantum physics.

I just don’t know what it means.

It means that you like a person.

Who gives a fuck what it means, Marie?

Okay! I do.

I like them.

I li-I like them.


I got to talk to them.

Wait, holy shit.

What’s wrong?

What is that?

That kid Sam.

That weird kid?

He said something about a drive-in.


[paper rustling]

[man 1] You can’t run forever, you know?

[man 2] They’re gonna find you.

Ding, ding, ding. Only this time they’ll hurt her, too.

[man 1] You know what you have to do.

[Puppet Emma] This is bad, Sam.

You said you were gonna save me.


I’m-I’m gonna to save the… the real Emma, not you. You’re-you’re not…

You’re not real.

[helicopter blades whirring]

Real like that?

[man] Go, go, go!

[dispatcher] Team A, B, C, proceed with extreme caution.

[man] Go, go, go, go, go!

Drop the weapon!

[dispatch] Team A, Team A.

Don’t you fucking move!

[man 1] Get down on the ground!

I heard he ripped a guy’s throat out.

Hey, freeze!

Please. I’m a single dad with two daughters.

Their names are Hailey and… [coughs]

Oh, Sam.

You have to stop hurting people.

[helicopter blades whirring]

[Marie] So, you think Sam knows what’s happening? How all this shit is connected?

I mean, he knows more than we do. He said they made us forget.

I mean, it has to be more than Rufus. It has to be the school.

Rufus was with Shetty.

I-I’m… I mean, I guess it’s possible, but what did she want us to forget?

I mean, that’s why I have to go find Sam.

Why the fuck are you scratching your neck like Tyrone Biggums?

I am?

There’s blood clotted.

Right under here.


[gasps, pants]


[gasps, pants]

What the fuck is that?!

[Marie gasps]


Where’s Andre?

Holy fuck, are you all right?

No, I’m not okay.

Everything is fucked, Cate. I-I…

I can’t…

Hey, slow down.

I know how this sounds.

[whispering] But they put trackers inside of us.

Marie, uh…

Sit-sit down. What are you talking about?

Who the fuck is “they”? Di-Did that Sam guy come back?

No. I don’t know. I don’t know. I… But…


This was in my neck.

Oh, my God.

Oh, my God.

Cate, I think this is way, way bigger than Rufus.

I think something really fucked happened to us… is happening to us… and I think Dean Shetty is a part of it.

Do I have one, too?

[Marie panting]

I’m so, so sorry.

I really wish it didn’t have to be like this.

It’s you.

I don’t know. I mean… she just seemed so fucking freaked out when she woke up with me looking like…


like this.


Jenny Boccabella was my first girlfriend in the sixth grade.

And she always wanted me to just be a guy.

So I changed for her.

[Maverick] Did you ask if Marie was freaked out?

She might not give a shit.

I mean, I…

No. I just assumed that that’s what she’d want.

That’s on you.

You’re the one who turns into a dude to hook up with her.

This is your hangup, not hers.


You think?

Yeah. Look, for all you know, she’s cool with hiding the sausage and bumping donuts.

Like, sometimes, I hide in the women’s showers and watch girls jerk off and sometimes I hide in the men’s.

Gender’s just a construct.

What the fuck, dude?

Hey, man, no kink shaming.


Aw, fuck, I got to go. She’s super pissed at me.

Sloane, wait!

Come on, don’t be like that.

[door opens]




Look, I know I said earlier that…

What the hell happened to you?

I have no idea.

That’s… fucking weird. Look, I feel like we’ve been avoiding each other, and…

Okay, listen, I know I said that we were cool earlier, but I don’t know if that’s actually true.

I mean, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and…

Wait, you never said we were cool.

Yes, I did, before we chased Rufus.


The psychic guy? Why… why would we chase him?

He fucking wiped you again.


That motherfucker.


I think there’s something there.

[Cate] I can’t do this anymore.

I just can’t.

[voice breaking] The lying and… pretending and… acting to be someone I’m not.

They know something’s wrong.

And they’re gonna keep looking and they’re gonna figure it out eventually and I’m just gonna… I’m ju… just gonna have to keep…


I-I tried, I really tried.

I know. I know you did, and I am sorry, sweetheart.

I know what I’ve asked you to do is difficult.

Maybe too difficult.

Helping people is your gift, Cate.

That’s what makes you so special.

No one else can help people get past what’s holding them back like you.

All I’ve ever asked is that you try.

Use your gift for good, no matter how hard it gets.

Because you’re the only one who can keep your friends safe.

[door closes]

[Sam] Emma?

Are you alone?

I mean, technically, I’m with you, so…

That’s probably not what you meant, but…

I mean, should I not be?


Do you re… remember me?


Sam, I don’t remember you.

No, but I do believe you.

I do.

I mean, you were right.

Someone made me forget you.

It’s not your fault.

She made Luke forget me, too.

[door closes]

Can we just be us for a minute… and forget everything else?

For sure.

Come here. Hey.

[indistinct chatter on TV]


[Andre sighs]

Okay, listen up.

Someone’s been mutilating nuns over at St. Patrick’s again.

I’ll take that one.

You got it.

Show’s not the same without Luke’s hot takes.

[upbeat TV theme music plays on TV]

His commentary was hilarious.

And he hated that kid.

[Andre laughs] He really did.




Everything’s different now.

Cate, you’re the only reason I’m still at this goddamn school.

And I think we should both get the fuck out.

We really should.


That what be… amazing.



[phone vibrates]

[siren whoops on TV]

There are no secrets from me.

Rufus, time for a chat.

No, no, no.

Stay the fuck away!



[panting] No, let me go.

We just want to talk.

God, I swear to fucking Christ I never touched any of you.

What are you and Shetty up to?

This is way above your weaselly pay grade, but you’re fucking with us for a reason.

You’re all fucking nuts. Look at the facts.

The facts you made me forget?

Okay, okay, wait. Wait, wait, wait.

You say I wiped your memory tonight, right?

Except I couldn’t have done that, because my powers only work up close, and I’ve been here for the last five hours.

Please tell them!


I’m pretty yipped on 2C-B right now, but that sounds right.

That doesn’t mean you’re innocent.

What the fuck is this?

How the fuck do I know?

It was implanted in my fucking neck!

[phone vibrates]

Can’t talk. We found Rufus.

Marie, it’s not him.

Look, I just work in the dean’s office, okay?

I don’t know shit about implants, and I didn’t do shit to you at the party.

Stop fucking lying!

It’s Cate!

[Rufus] Please don’t kill me.

Why would you say that?

Sam is Golden Boy’s brother.

Cate made him forget he even had a brother over and over and over. And, look, I know Rufus is a monster, but so is Cate.

Please. Pl-Please don’t kill me.

I’ve been waiting all night for this.

Jordan, it’s not him. It’s Cate.

What? That’s fucking crazy.

I know, but it’s true.

You sure?

I’m sure.

[Jordan] Fuck.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, Andre, hold on, hold on.

Andre, Andre, you need to calm down.

Move. This scumbag’s mine.

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

Nowhere to run, motherfucker.


Wait, wait, wait. Andre.

Just stop.

It wasn’t him.

It was Cate!

Bullshit. Cate would never do something like that.

[Cate] Andre, don’t!

[Andre] Cate,

tell them it isn’t true.

I’m so sorry.

I’ve only ever wanted to help and protect you.

I just wanted to make things better, and…


[Sam] You’re all lying.

You’re-you’re all fucking…


[Tek] You wanted what Golden Boy had.

His girlfriend, the number one spot.

Is that why he blew himself up?

We don’t know who’s in on it. Maybe Dean Shetty.

I can’t lose you, too.

They call it The Woods. It’s like this fucked-up hospital or something.

[Luke] Help Sam if you can, please.

I love you.

An-Andre, pl-please understand, I didn’t…

You’re a fucking monster.
