Gen V - S01E07 - Sick

Original release date: October 27, 2023

Cate contacts Shetty, who agrees to meet at her house. Marie and Jordan decide to break into Shetty’s office to gather evidence and present it to Victoria Neuman, who is present at Godolkin University for a town hall meeting. They learn that Shetty’s husband and daughter were killed during a plane crash caused by Homelander. A drunken Cardosa enters Shetty’s office and rambles about the virus, unknowingly revealing the truth to Marie and Jordan, who were hiding under Shetty’s desk. Shetty meets with Grace Mallory, and requests her help in spreading the virus globally to kill all Supes, but Mallory refuses, and later orders an unknown contact to keep watch on Shetty. Andre’s father, Polarity, has a seizure during an interview with Cameron Coleman, causing his power to go out of control. Andre accompanies his father on an ambulance and helps to keep his power under control, and later stays beside him at the hospital. Coleman takes Polarity’s place and interviews Neuman during the town hall meeting, where student protesters incite a riot, forcing Neuman to evacuate. Marie meets with Neuman and learns that they share the same power, and both of them grew up at the Red River facility. Marie convinces Neuman to expose the Woods to Vought, but the latter convinces her to back down and pursue a position of power rather taking on Vought without political and cultural influence. Marie, Jordan, Sam, and Emma later go to Shetty’s house, where Cate forces Shetty to reveal the truth behind the Woods and her motivation for creating the virus. Cate then forces Shetty to cut her throat, and prevents Marie from saving her, leaving her to bleed out and die. Cardosa secretly meets with Neuman and hands over the virus specimen, but he is killed by the latter to silence knowledge on how to replicate the virus.

* * *


[Rich] Ugh! Get off me.

Get the fuck off me, man!

[guard] Settle down!

What did I do?

What the fuck did I do?

Watch it.

[lock clunks]

Hey! Fuck you!


Try not to breathe.

[labored breathing, wheezing]





[whimpers] What did they do to you?



Please! Please, let us out!


[crying] We’re sorry.

We’re sorry.

[speaker beeps off]

How long will it take?

Well, transmission occurs through direct contact with bodily fluids, so, depending on Andy’s viral load…

Can’t we make it airborne?


So it’s more contagious.

I think we need to take a beat and assess what our long-term goals are.

I’m quite clear on that.

Because… if an airborne virus gets into the super-abled population, it could spread like wildfire.

Define “wildfire.”

I’m doubtful Vought would want us to entertain anything so reckless, Indira.

It’s a little late in the day to worry about what Vought wants, Edison.

And, uh, what would happen if I informed Vought of this?

I don’t know, you tell me.

What would happen if you told Vought you’d created a virus that kills Supes?

I didn’t. I… I didn’t know. I never signed on for any of this.

Of course you did.

This is your brainchild.

You invented it.

[phone ringing]

And now you’re gonna finish it.

[door opens]


Hello, sweetheart.

[door closes]

[Cate] I need to see you.

What’s wrong? Has something happened?

Everything is just so fucked-up right now.

Please, can I come over?

[sighs] Damn, I have a meeting in the city that I can’t move.

Go to my house, fix yourself something to eat.

I’ll be there soon and I’ll take care of everything.

All right.

You take your medication today?


Take another. You’ll feel better.

It’ll be all right, Cate. I promise.

[line beeps]

[overlapping voices]

[chaotic chatter]

[mother] I hate these kids.

[chaotic chatter continues]

[cash register dings]

[voices stop]

[food sizzling]

[Cameron over TV] We’re coming to you live today from Godolkin University, where campus police expect mass protests leading up to today’s town hall with the historically unpopular and phony socialist scammer herself, vice presidential candidate

Victoria Neuman, just as new rumors are surfacing that George Soros is filling the Singer/Neuman campaign coffers…

Shetty can’t meet right now.

The fuck does that mean?

[sighs] Where is she?

The city. She’ll be back later.

So what do we do?

[Cate] I’ll wait for her at her house, and then, when she comes home,

I’ll make her tell everyone everything.

[Jordan] Fucking liar. Can’t wait to go run back to Shetty.

[Andre] If we let her go alone, she’ll just stab us in the back.

[Marie] How could we trust her when she’s still hiding something?

I’ll go with her.

It’s okay.

No. I’m going.

You can trust me.

Stay out of our fucking heads.

Then maybe we’ll trust you.


[entry bells jingle]

I swear.

I swear, you can.

I want to believe you.

I know you do.


Do you believe me?

[entry bells jingle]

You already know.



Fucking stop for a minute.

She was reading our thoughts, Marie.

You know, she probably can’t help it.

Why are you making excuses for her?

I’m not.

Look, she could fuck with our heads any time she wants to, and she’s not.

We have to believe she’s on our side.


And you got to stop turning into a dude when you want to make a point to us.




We need Cate.

She’s the only way to get Shetty to expose The Woods.

Unless we get proof ourselves.


Shetty’s in the city all day.

I got the key to her office.

I’m her T.A., remember?

Look, we find proof about The Woods, or what they’ve done to Sam and those other kids down there,

it doesn’t matter what Cate does.

And then what? Post it on Insta?

You think they’re gonna believe a Black girl and a bi-gender Asian Supe over Vought? No. They’re just gonna twist it like they twist everything else.

Unless we get it to someone they will listen to.

[Emma] Okay, these are all your clothes.

I’m gonna take these to this guy from my Voice and Movement class.

I mean, he’s kind of sketch, but for five ecstasy pills, he’ll use his pyro powers to incinerate everything, no questions asked, which is good.

And then… it’ll be like it never even happened, right?


I did rip an entire person in half.


I mean, in my defense, he was a puppet at the time, so…

I know, but maybe you didn’t do that because now I’m destroying the evidence and who even remembers now? I don’t.


You have so many things.

Okay, that is a normal amount of sex toys.

I like options.

[buzzing stops]


Okay. Okay.

I stole these from the laundry room for you.

I think they’re clean?

No, I-I like what I’m wearing. It… smells like you.

Oh, no, no, no.

You got to stay here.



No one can know where you are.

That makes sense. Yeah.

I’ll be super quick.

I mean, I can get you food, too.

You got to be starving.

Oh, w-will that take you a very long time?

No. No, there’s a Vought-A-Burger right in student union.

You won’t even know that I’m gone.


The last time I had Vought-A-Burger I was with Luke.



Everything you’ve gone through, I mean, I’d be fucked-up.

I mean,

I’d be really fucked-up.

But you’re so sweet.

I mean, when you’re not slaughtering a bunch of dudes.


Do not answer the door, no matter what.


Stranger danger.

Stranger danger.

Stranger danger. Yup. All right.




What’s that?

I don’t know.

This was hidden in her drawer.

All this stuff about a plane crash.

Transoceanic Flight 37.

[Jordan] Yeah, I remember that.

It was terrorists, right?

Yeah, that’s what they said.

Oh, my God, look.

[Jordan] Shetty, Lily, age 11.

Shetty, Paul, age 46.

Her family was on the plane.

[door beeps]


Oh, Shetty, Shetty, Shetty.

You want me to increase the viral infection rate.


Kill them all, she says.

And sign my own death certificate.




[zipper opens]


[Edison sighing]

[zipper closes]

How about… you take a long drink of that, Indira.

You fucking cunt.

[door opens]

What did he say about infection rate?

[Mallory] You know some powerful people.

Thank you for meeting me.

A chat with a celebrated Vought psychologist who’s now dean of their little superhero factory?

Who could resist?

You’ve got two minutes.

You’ll want longer.

I’m sorry, this is at the school, and Vought doesn’t know?

We’re estimating about ten months to make it potent and contagious enough to get the job done.

It’s getting harder to hide. That’s why I need you.

For what, exactly?

I know you monitor Supes.

Their team affiliations, their whereabouts.

You know where to find all of them, even those that aren’t under Vought’s thumb.

We’ll be able to neutralize them once and for all.

What you’re describing goes beyond neutralizing.

It’s a war crime.

This is a war. Us against them.

And so far, they’ve been winning. The virus gives us a way to fight back.

It’s genocide.

You need to stop what you’re doing immediately.

If Vought gets wind of this, the Supes will crush you and everyone you care about.

Too late for that.

No matter how many of them you kill, none of this is going to bring your husband and daughter back.

Or your grandchildren.

But it could save someone else’s.

A man who works for me, one of your fellow countrymen, although, I doubt you travel in the same circles, has this same rage.

It’s so consumed him that there’s nothing left.

Trust me, you don’t want to go down that path.

I’m doing this with or without you.

With you would be easier.

Together, we can end it, finally.

Or I could have you arrested, or committed.


But I don’t think you will.

Part of you agrees with me.

We’re done here.


Pleasure to meet you, Dean Shetty.

Go back to your school.

Did you get all that?

Keep a close eye on her.

[laughs, sighs]

Are-are you okay?

That is fucking amazing.


Steve, it’s melting!

You got to try.

Is this allowed?

I mean, are-aren’t you gonna get in trouble?

[chuckles] We’re superheroes.

We can do whatever we want.

Yo, party’s moving. You coming?

Um… I’m supposed to stay here to, uh, to wait for Emma.

Dude, Emma’s at the party we’re going to.

She is?

Yeah, sure, whatever. Come on.

Okay. [chuckles]


There he is.


Yo, fuck Neuman!

[director] All right, people, let’s go.

We’re live in four, three…

Should an avowed superhero “reformer” be speaking at a college for superheroes?

To answer this question, we’re joined by Godolkin University trustee, beloved God-fearing superhero who bleeds red, white, and blue, Polarity.

Hello there. Thank you for having me, Cameron.

[Cameron] Now, am I getting this right?

You’re moderating Victoria Neuman’s town hall?

[chuckles] Cameron, Victoria Neuman is being invited…

It turns out Shetty’s big into edibles.

Can you believe it?



I pictured her, uh, her kitchen to be full of just, like, British tea.

Oh, yeah, she’s got that, too.

Why is he on Cameron Coleman?

He doesn’t have anything new to push until next year.

[Cate] Moderating the Neuman thing.

Shetty thought it would look better if an actual superhero was asking questions about superhero issues.

Didn’t he talk to you about that?

Andre, when was the last time you two talked?

When I found out he was Vought’s bitch, and when he told me not to rescue the kids that were trapped in the prison under the school, so…

I’m sorry.

You know, when I was a kid, I wanted to be just like him.

But after everything we know about this place… you’d have to be a fucking idiot to think any of it matters.

I just can’t trust him.

So, that’s why I haven’t talked to him.

And if I did, he’d probably just go to Vought anyway, so…

Is that what you think of me?

That I’m just gonna tell Shetty everything?

You tell me, Cate. You’re the one in my fucking head.

[Polarity] Look, Cameron, we here at Godolkin believe that speech is free and knowledge can be a superhero.

A superpower.

And… [laughs]

And it’s a good thing that someone as versatile and trustworthy as you has stepped up to ask the tough questions that superheroes and real Americans care about.

[breathes shakily]

[Cameron] Uh, Polarity, you okay?

[woman screams]

Holy sh…

Somebody get some fucking help!


Get some help!

Oh, shit.

[TV announcer] Are you ready to stop reusing your catheter…

Go, go, they’re right on campus. Go.

Medicare and Vought Insurance now cover up to $250 per month. There are no upfront costs.

[door opens]

[door closes]

You are gonna love…


No. No, no, no, no, no, no.


[siren wailing]

Shit, shit, shit, shit.

Hey, hey, hey, hey.

That’s my dad. That’s my dad.

[medic] Buckle in. We got to get going.

Oh, shit.

[siren wailing]

He’s seizing again.

[metal crunching]

Wait. Dad, Dad!

[siren chirping]

[horn blaring]

[Andre] Damn it, Dad, wake up!


[medic gasps]


Do something.

I’m trying! We need to wake him up.


Dad, wake up!

[medic screams]

[horn honking]

Maverick, open up.

Hey, Sloane.

Have you seen this guy?

Why, are you stalking him or something?


So, you haven’t seen him?


I’m not a fucking Find My Friends app.

Go cockblock someone else.

[overlapping shouting]

Stop! Put that down!

[man 1] Cancel Neuman!

[woman 1] Shut up!

I thought you said Emma was here.

Oh. She’s meeting us later.

[Cameron] If you’re just joining us, I’m Cameron Coleman, pinch-hitting for my good friend Polarity, who had a last-minute emergency.

Ms. Neuman, you claim that the FBSA is here to protect people from superheroes, but at your own congressional hearing,

Stormfront slaughtered multiple people, and on a separate occasion, Soldier Boy nearly killed thousands of innocent people in Manhattan.

Now, both times, why were you just sitting back snapping your gum, watching America burn?

Look, Cameron, the thing that you need to remember here is that both those instances caused a 30% drop

of public confidence in superhumans.

And the FBSA responded by actually strengthening protection of both humans and superhumans alike, leading to a record low number of violent incidents in both populations.


[others booing]

[Cameron] Or is your agency just an excuse for persecuting one of America’s most prominent minority groups?

Which is why they deserve to have a voice.

If elected, our administration wants to put a new position in government that allows the superhuman community to have a seat at the table.



That have anything to do with the fact that polls show your ticket is below 30% with the super-abled community?

No, Cameron.

Let’s open this up to the audience of America’s future superheroes. Yes, over here.

Shit, still no word from Cate.

Not surprising.

Maybe we should check on her.

There’s no time.

Got to find Neuman, tell her what we know.

[Marie] Any chance you know a teleporter?

No, but I can cause a distraction.

[Marie] Jordan, what’re you gonna do?

Don’t get caught.


You’re the girl who fucking tortured Emma, right?

No, no, no, no. [sighs] I just gave her a plat…

[punk rock music plays]


Hey! [grunts]

Look at this.

Jordan Li attacking her own kind.

Say goodbye to number five, Jordan.


[bystander] Hey!

Hey! Break it up!

Fucking kids.

[indistinct chatter]


♪ ♪

[student] Thank you for being here today.

We all saw Homelander kill a human in broad daylight, unprovoked.

Is he gonna be held accountable?

[booing and applause]

Thank you. That is a good question.

I have full faith in the legal system, and Homelander should stand trial, just like anybody else, and a jury of his peers will decide that outcome.

Humans aren’t our fucking peers.


[Steve] What about us, huh?

Supe lives matter!

Can you state once and for all whether superheroes have civil rights?

Like all Americans, superhumans have civil rights and everything that comes along with that.

[man] Fuck yeah we do!

[audience cheering]

And I get it, the superhuman community wants to make sure that the government is treating them fairly and addressing their unique concerns.

[woman] Bullshit!

Robert Singer and I know that most superhumans are law-abiding citizens.

Fucking narc. You don’t know shit.


We can find common sense solutions here.

You will not control us.

This isn’t about control.

You will not control us.

[audience chanting] You will not control us.

This is not about control.

No, no, no, it’s all right, it’s all right.

Look, people are passionate about the issue, so am I.

Hey. Come back here.

[audience chanting] You will not control us.

Why is everyone so angry?

Because they’re trying to limit us.

Take away our power, but Homelander is right.

You will not control us. You will not control us.

[audience continues chanting]


[Neuman] Robert Singer and I want to work with superhumans just like you to make sure…

[audience continues chanting]

Like most of America, this crowd has rejected Victoria Neuman and her un-American, anti-superhero agenda.

Supe lives matter.

You will not control us.

You will not control us.

[audience chanting in distance]

Ms. Neuman, um, uh, do you have a minute?

Step away.

Ms. Neuman, please, it’s important that I speak with you.

You’re Marie Moreau, right? I was hoping I’d meet you.

You were?

Yeah, um, let’s find someplace we can chat, just the two of us.

[overlapping shouting]


[shouting continues]

Have you seen Sam?

Are you fucking kidding me?

No. Where is he?

I don’t know.

[stammers] I mean…

There’s so much security here. What if they found him?

Then we’re fucked, Emma.

He’s the only proof we had that The Woods exist.

Okay, he could be in real fucking trouble, Jordan.

We got to find him before…


Sam. Sam.


Where have you been?

I missed you.

You’re supposed to be hiding.

I was shitting myself worried.

I was waiting for you.

Emma, I-I drank beer.

There was this, there was this ice slide.

I wish you’d seen it.

And all of these superheroes using their powers.

It-it was, it was the best.

I mean, some of the people here are a bag of dicks.

I guess, but, come on, it’s awesome being with people like us, just having fun.

Okay, look, we need to get him out of here now.

Okay, Sam, Sam, we got to hide you. It’s okay.

We just got to hide you.

Oh, man.


Later, guys.

[Jordan] Now.

Oh, Cate. [sighs]

Why are you in here with all the lights off?

I’ve been trying to call you for hours.

I’m sorry, my meeting went long. [chuckles]

You look so tired, darling.

Why don’t we… get you some rest.

We can talk later.

This can’t wait.

You’ve not been taking your medication, Cate.

You know what happens when you don’t.

I’ve got your prescription here.


All those pills ever did was make me numb.

They weren’t helping me.

They were clouding me.

You talk, manipulate, control.

That’s all you’ve ever done to me.

That isn’t true.

And I’m fucking sick of it.

You say I’m doing the right thing.

It doesn’t feel right.

What if I said you didn’t have to do it anymore?


Am I?

[soft chuckle]

It’s almost time to leave this place.

You’re leaving me?


We are leaving. Together.

After I’ve tied up a few loose ends, then all of the sacrifices, all of the hard work will finally pay off.

You want to make us sick.

Not you.

No, I’m gonna keep you safe.

We need each other.

When I lost my husband and my daughter, I lost my entire world.

Every day I asked myself, “Why am I still here?”

But in finding you, and with all our time together, I… I’ve found something truly special again.

My powers.

No, Cate, you.

A girl who was just as lost and lonely as I felt.

Somehow, I feel like you are truly mine, and I love you.

[overlapping voices]

You’re telling the truth.

[chuckles] Yes.

I know you feel alone, but we have each other.

One last push from you, and then we can leave all of this behind.

You will never be alone again.


My daughter’s gonna be so jealous that I met the Guardian of Godolkin today.

We’re huge fans.


I was hoping you’d come to my town hall today, maybe ask a question.

Your, uh, dean didn’t show up either.

I think a personal emergency.

Yeah. I don’t know.

It’s okay.

It was a shit show anyway.

You know what?

We’ll hide out in the green room until it all blows over out there.

Otherwise, I think they might…

[clicks tongue] take off my head.

Look, there’s something I wanted…

Your powers are badass.

Coolest I’ve ever seen.


Those lassos and blood swords must be fucking exhausting, though.

What else can you do?

Oh, that’s about it.

Oh, come on.

Tell me something about myself.

I… I don’t understand.

You can sense things in blood.

Use that and tell me about me.

[steady heartbeat]


Oh, my God, you’re…

Your blood, there’s Compound V in it.

You’re a Supe.

I knew you could do it. Good job.

How? Why? [stammers]


Give me your knife.

Holy shit.

Thought I was the only one till you popped up at Red River.

I couldn’t let them ship you off to their adult facilities, so I got you into Godolkin.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, you’re awesome and everything, and-and you got in on your own merits.

I just, uh, gave you a little boost.

Hold on, hold on, hold on. Why-why are you telling me this?

Because we understand each other.

[scoffs] You don’t know anything about me.

Oh, yes, I do.

I know that you’ve fought for every fucking thing you’ve ever got in your life.

I know that you’re constantly lonely, and you’re afraid that you’re gonna hurt people, like you did with your parents.

And you feel like everybody is afraid of you because you grew up hearing that your powers are too dangerous, too disgusting for anyone to ever want to adopt you.

I also know that every Friday for the past eight years, you’ve had fish sticks with pink sauce “as a treat.”

‘Cause I did, too.

You grew up at Red River?

Yeah, till I was 12.

I still can’t have fish.

It’s residual trauma.

Just, like, the smell alone is-is… [chuckles] horrifying.

[both laugh]

They were wrong about you and your powers, Marie.

You are a very rare and exceptional girl.

Thank you.

Okay, enough nostalgia for one day.

You had something important you wanted to tell me, right?

There’s a secret lab under this school called The Woods where they experiment on kids.

They’re infecting them with a virus that can kill Supes.

A virus? Are you sure?

There’s a Dr. Cardosa.

He-he works in The Woods. He knows all about it.

Look, you have to tell everyone what Vought is doing.

I’ll handle it.

Handle it?


What… what does that mean?

That means I got it from here, Marie, okay?

You can go back to being a student.


No, no. I can’t just go back to being a student when this whole fucking school is a lie.

Listen to me.

God U is your shot at finally having some control over your life.

Once Vought stashes people like you and me inside Red River, it’s fucking impossible to break out of that orphanage-to-institution pipeline without help.

Trust me.

Look, I have a platform now where I can help people.

I mean, isn’t that the entire point of being a superhero?

You don’t have shit. Marie Moreau, Guardian of Godolkin, is marketing, okay?

And you better believe that Vought will ship her off to the adult facility if she keeps fucking up her situation.

But the first Black woman in The Seven, she has real power.

She’s friends with the vice president.

That woman, she could make a real difference politically, culturally.

Maybe she can even find Annabeth.

Two paths, Marie.

You have to choose. You can’t have both.

Let’s keep in touch.

[shaky exhale]

[phone chimes]

[machine beeping]

S-Sorry I haven’t been around.

[phone buzzes]

I’m here.




Are you okay?

Your eye…

What happened?

[Cate] I’m okay, and now she’ll do whatever we want.

Maybe you should rest.

I feel fine.

It wasn’t my powers that were fucking me up.

It was the pills she was giving me.

I’ve never felt better.

[Shetty] Cate.

Listen to your friends. They care about you.

Shut up.

You had your chance to talk, and now it’s my turn.

Please, Cate, you don’t have to do this. I love you.

[Cate] I know you love me.

It doesn’t change the fact that you’re a fucking bitch.

Cate, what the fuck is going on?

Don’t worry, we’re on the same side.

Okay, sorry, can I get a quick SparkNotes version?

‘Cause I have no idea what the fuck you guys are talking about.

Tell them what you told me.

This school is a front.

Thomas Godolkin was a behavioral scientist.

He built this place to figure out what makes Supes tick, their weaknesses, how to control them.

You’re not here to study.

The school is here to study you.

You’re subjects. Not human.

We’re better than humans.

We found out she has some kind of virus to kill the kids in The Woods.

She wants to make it more contagious.

She wants more than that. Don’t you?

I want it to spread across the globe and kill all of you.

Holy fuck.

Why? We don’t want to hurt you or anyone. You know that.

Don’t lie. Tell her.


So… so all this because he lasered that Starlighter dude?

No, sorry, it’s fucked-up, don’t get me wrong, but, like, killing all of us seems… seems a little melodramatic.


He took down that plane?

He killed your family?

It’s not just him.

You all leave a path of destruction behind you.

You have ruined countless lives.

Just look at what you did to your parents.

You can’t help it.

It’s your species.

Tell them what your last assignment was for me.

Kill everybody in The Woods.

[Jordan] Jesus Christ. Did you?

Of course not, Jordan. I’m trying to show you what kind of a monster she is.

She wants to wipe us off the face of the Earth.

They all do, so we have to strike first.

Starting with her.

Cate, make me forget. We can start over.

I’m gonna take care of you.

Shut up. Shut up.

Shut up. Shut up. Shut the fuck up.



It’s time.

[heavy breathing]

Fuck. Cate.

[Emma] Holy shit.

[Jordan] Cate.

Oh, my fucking God.

Holy fuck.


Don’t help.

Fuck, fuck, fuck. Fuck, fuck.

Marie, do something!

Cate. Cate, you don’t need to do this.

We have Neuman. She’s gonna stop her.

We can’t trust anybody. They’ll only hurt us.

This is the only way.

[Shetty gasping]

Baby girl…


Cate, Cate.

Cate, please. Please.

You have to let me save her.

I’m so sorry you have to relive this.


do you know what you’ve done?


For all of us.

The virus isn’t very contagious, thank God.

It can survive for a few days at ambient temperature, but, you’ll want to get these test tubes into cold storage sooner than later.

NIH will know what to do.

Speaking out against Vought takes a lot of courage, Dr. Cardosa.

I was so relieved when you contacted me about my research.

I could not stand by any longer while Dean Shetty twisted my work.

You and I have the same goals, right?

Compassionate control.
