Samurai Jack S5E7 Script

Episode XCVIII (2017)

50 years have passed.

But I do not age.

Time has lost its effect on me.

(EXHALES SHARPLY)

(LAUGHS MANIACALLY)

Yet the suffering continues.

Aku's grasp chokes the past, present, and future.

Hope is lost.

Got to get back, back to the past, Samurai Jack.

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

(WIND HOWLING)

Oh! Hello, little friend.

I don't suppose you know if there is a time portal atop this mountain, do you?

No?

Yes?

(SIGHS)

Aku has destroyed many.

I worry that there are none left.

(EERIE SOUNDS)


(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

(GASPS)

(AKU LAUGHING MANIACALLY)

Phew! That was close!

I didn't think you'd get here so fast.

Fool!

Oh, fun fact, that was the last remaining time portal in existence!

(AKU LAUGHING)

(GROWLING)

Ooh, so angry!

Be careful, Samurai, so much stress will give you a heart attack.

Ooh! What am I saying?

Please continue!

Never mind what I said!

(SCREAMS)

Whoa!

(SCREAMS)

Ho, ho!

Not so fast, Samurai.

I know better than to mess with that sword!

But before I go, I'll leave you someone to play with.

(ROARING)

(GROWLS)

(SCREAMING)

(SNARLING)

(SCREAMING)

(GROANING)

(SHRIEKING)

(GASPS)


JACK: And so, I was not able to find it again.

There! (SHRIEKING)

(MELLOW INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYING)


We are here.

(WINGS FLAPPING)

(MUSIC STOPS)

(EERIE SOUNDS)

It's not here.

Could someone else have taken it?

No.

I realize now that I did not lose the sword, but the sword left me.

(CHIMING)

Thank you, friend.

Yes, thank you.

(coos SOFTLY)

I do not know how long this may take.

I'll go with you.

You cannot.

It is something that I must do on my own.

Wait, I...

Oh. I guess I'll just wait here.

(EERIE SOUNDS)

(WIND HOWLING)


(THUDDING FOOTSTEPS)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

(WIND HOWLING)

(WHIRRING)

(MELLOW INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYING)


Are you lost?

Yes.

Good.

Come make tea.

ASHI: Hold it.

Where do you think you're going?

Up the mountain, to kill the Samurai.

What's it to you?

I'm going to stop you.

(CHUCKLES)

(ALL LAUGHING)

WARRIOR: Hey, why have we stopped? What's so funny?

It's a girl!

She says she's going to stop us.

What did he say?

Something about a squirrel.

I love squirrels!

Is it lunch already?

So a little thing like you is gonna stop this whole army, huh?

Yep.

We're gonna rip you apart in a bunch of pieces, and then we're gonna take those pieces and rip them apart into even more pieces!

I'm waiting.

Hmm.

(GROWLING)

(ALL SCREAMING)

(SCREAMING)

(GASPING)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

(SCREAMING)


(SCREAMING)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC CONTINUES)


(SLURPS)

(PANTING)

(RUSTLING IN THE DISTANCE)

(WHISTLING)

(BIRD SCREECHES)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

(SCREECHES)

(GRUNTING)

Mother?

I knew you would fail us.

You were the strongest, but the most unfocused.

Always distracted, questioning everything.

But all that can change.

You can still honor our Lord Father.

Destroy the Samurai, Ashi.

No.

You were wrong about everything.

Jack showed me the truth.

Then you, too, will die.

(GRUNTS)

(MUSIC INTENSIFIES)


How could you betray your family?

He killed your sisters!

And you let him live!

(GROWLS)

ASHI: No, you killed them!

We were made for one purpose, to kill!

Our fate was sealed the day we were born!

The Samurai is our mortal enemy.

He must die at any cost.

No.

(GROANS)

(SLURPS)

This is terrible.

Really?

Yes.

Yes, quite terrible.

This tea has all the necessary ingredients... but it lacks the most important one, balance.

I see why your path to the sword remains clouded.

This isn't the path?

I don't understand.

Then you must show me the way!

I cannot.

It is not for me to show you your path.

That's fortune cookie nonsense!

He knows where it is. He just won't tell you.

Please, you must tell me.

That is something you must earn.

Earn?

After everything we've done, everything we've been through, the death, the loss, the suffering!

Who are you to deny us what is rightfully ours?

Enough.

We have lost the sword because of you.

I have kept us alive!

He's the one who has taken it from us!

He knows where it is!

No.

I've let you consume me for far too long.

You're in my way.

You.

You are the one who has kept the past hidden.

Your anger, your frustration.

(SHOUTS) You're a fool!

You have blinded us, but now I can see.

You need me!

Now you are balanced.

(GASPS)

Like your father, you have been chosen.

To stop a force of ultimate evil.

You are worthy.

(SCREAMING)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)


(MUSIC STOPS)

(GASPS)

Ashi.

Jack?

Yes. It is me.

You got your sword.

And a shave and a haircut.

Hmm, yes.

And you, you have been very busy.

(GROANING)

Thank you.

So, what next?

Aku!
