The Umbrella Academy S1E9 Script

Changes (2019)

Your brothers and sister have all finished their oatmeal and begun their training for the day.

Don't you want to join them, Number Seven?

Is someone having a tough morning?

You know what cheers me up when I'm down?



Number Seven!


Hi, Number Seven. I'm your new nanny, Mrs. Cornwallis.


Number Seven!


Bonjour. I'm Miss Stevenbaker and I am your new nanny.

Number Seven!


Hello, Number Seven. My name is Grace. I'm your new nanny.

Your father tells me you don't like oatmeal, but we need our breakfast to grow up big and strong, and you have to train with the others after you eat.

Here, let me help you.


Shall we try again?

Better eat that oatmeal before it gets cold.

We're safe here for a bit.

We can't stay long.

We gotta pack our things.



Let's clean you up.

Your family, they'll be coming for us soon.

It's okay.

You don't have to worry. We're a team now.

Take the fight to them.

Why would they be coming for me?

Vanya... you killed Allison.

No, I...

I lost control.

Everything just happened so fast. I know.

I know.

It's not your fault. You were protecting yourself.

That's not how they'll see it.

No. I'll... I'll... I'll explain it to them.

Uh, I... I just need to get to them and I... I need to explain it to them.

They wanna hurt you.

I'm the only one on your side who understands... just how special... you truly are.

I knew it the first time I met you.

I see it now as I look at your face.

But they don't see it.

They never have.

They never will.

Say it.

I can't.

Say it for me.

I'm special.

Got it.

Say it again.

I'm special.

Now, that wasn't so hard.

Come on! Let's go! I don't think she's breathing.

If we don't get her upstairs, she's gonna die.

She's suffered a severe laceration to her larynx.

One of you will need to give blood. I will.

I will. I'm doing it.

I'm afraid that's not possible, dear boy.

Your blood is more compatible with mine.

Hey, don't sweat it. I... I got this, big guy.

I... I love needles. Master Klaus.

Your blood is...

How shall I say this?

Too polluted.

Move. Yeah, go on.

I'll do it.

Whoa! No!

Stick him.

What are you doing? Looking for drugs.

Don't do it.

I'm done listening to you!

Just go away. Go away, please.

I like the sober you.

Yeah, well, sobriety’s overrated. Look where it's gotten you, though.

Well, where has it gotten me?

Where has it gotten me? Nowhere.

I can't talk to the person I love. People... still don't take me seriously.

I wanna be numb again.

You're a colossal wimp.

Oh, yeah, really? Yeah, really!


Life isn't supposed to be easy.

Life is hard.

Bad things happen. Good people die.

Wow, playing the dead card again, huh? You need new material, bro.

I was talking about Dave.

You know, I'm tired of seeing you wallow in self-defeat.

Well, then avert your gaze.

You're better than that.

And Dave?

He knew it, too.

Yeah, you're right.

You're right. I'm... I'm... I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Thank God.



You just Patrick Swayzeed me.

How did you do that?

Uh, I... I didn't.

You did.

I think.

The bastard that nearly killed our sister's still out there, with Vanya.

We need to go after her. Vanya is not important.

Hey, that's your sister. A little heartless even for you, Five.

I'm not saying I don't care about her, but if the apocalypse happens today, she dies along with the other seven billion of us.

Harold Jenkins is our first priority.

I agree. Let's go. You guys count me out.

I mean, you know, no offense or whatever.

It's just... I kind of feel like this is a whole lot of pressure for newly-sober me, so...

You're coming. No, no, no.

I mean, I think we can all agree that my power's...

I mean, it's pretty much useless. I'd just be holding you guys back.

Klaus, get up.

You can't make me.

Oh, then again, a little exercise couldn't hurt.


I said go!

Vanya, I love you!

I heard a rumor...

No! Allison!


Oh, God.

Vanya? Let's get goin'.

Vanya, I can explain.

You've been manipulating me all this time?

No, that's not true.

I'm only trying to protect you. From who?

From your family.

They're the ones trying to hurt you.

Vanya, it's all there, in that journal.

Your father... was afraid of you.

That's why he put you on those pills.

It wasn't to help you.

It was to hold you back.

He didn't trust that you were strong enough to control your powers.

But I've never been afraid of you.

I embraced you.

I'm the only one who ever accepted you for who you really are.

Your brothers and your sister, they went along with him every step of the way.

Who is Harold Jenkins?

He's... someone like us.

A lonely boy.

An outsider whose family was cruel to him.

All he ever wanted was to be heard, to be loved.

Allison was right.

You're sick. I'm not the one who tried to kill you.

I need to go. What have they ever done for you? Hm?

I'm the reason that you got first chair!

I auditioned. I earned the spot.

You think that the first chair went missing all by herself?

What did you do?

I did this for you.

Stay away from me! Vanya, we are in danger.

We're in danger. Your family, they've seen you in action.

They know what you're capable of.

They will come for us. No, they'll listen to me.

No, they never will! They want you to feel small!

But they are the small ones, next to you.

Compared to them, you are a god!

You just needed your eyes opened to see what they really are.

I gave that to you.

So... let's finish what we started.

Vanya, you need me. What I need is my family.

I didn't...

I didn't mean to kill Allison.

And I love her.

And I love them.

Your father was right.

Not strong enough.

He knew it.

And now I know it.

You're weak!

Stop it.

You're pathetic.

Please don't.

Look at you. You're nothing.


You're just ordinary. Stop it!

Less than ordinary! Stop it!

You are not special!

Ordinary. Ordinary. Pathetic. Nothing! Stop it! Stop it!


No, not to me, Vanya.




Hey, Hazel!

Hey, I wasn't expecting you back so early. But guess what I got for us...

Enjoy a free upgrade at the Rain and Quail B and B next door for the purchase of our premium...

...Atrium Pass.

If you're here for Hazel, he's not coming. He left me.

Sure he did.

It's not exactly what I was expecting. The understatement of the year.

No sign of Vanya.

Let's get out of here, before the cops come.

In a minute.

Come on, Five, what are you... Ugh, wow.

Same eye color, same pupil size. Guys this is it.

The eye I've been carrying around for decades, it...

It's found its rightful home.

We got the guy we needed to kill to stop the apocalypse.

Yay! Let's go.

No, no. Wait, wait. It can't be this easy.

Look, this is the note that I got from the Commission.

The one that says, "Protect Harold Jenkins," aka Leonard Peabody.

Yeah? But who killed him? Who did this?

I have a crazy idea.

Crazy, but why don't we find Vanya... and ask her what happened?

If Vanya got away from this asshole, she might be headed back to the Academy.

Is she gonna make it? Yes.

But her vocal cords were badly damaged.

It's a miracle that, somehow, her carotid artery wasn't severed.

Will she be able to talk?

It's too early to tell.

More importantly, thanks to you and your brothers, she's still with us.

Grace and I can take it from here, Master Luther.

Go. Rest.

You're the last person I would trust here.

I'm not going anywhere.

No sign of Vanya. She's not in any of the rooms.

She's not downstairs, either.

Well, I'm out. Wait.

Wait. Wait... Where are you going?

Vanya's still out there, and so are Hazel and Cha-Cha.

I know. I'm gonna get my things and then I'm outta here.

I got some unfinished business with those fools.

Hey, did Dad say anything about the apocalypse when you spoke to him?

Any clues as to how it happened?

No. No clues. Truly terrific shave.

But no clues.


You know, come to think of it, he did mention something about my potential, and how I've barely even scratched the surface of my...

How did he know about the apocalypse? I don't know, but listen.

This whole jumping through time thing of yours, how did...

How did you know how to do that?

I didn't.

You'd realize that if you were actually sober.

Hey, I am sober.

I've been sober for two... almost two days now.

Yeah, two days. It feels like 45 years.

Who are you kidding, Klaus? I've seen you fidgeting all day.

Well, I guess we're both fighting our addictions, then.

I'm not an addict. Yeah, you are.

You're addicted to a drug called the apocalypse.

You're wrong. First sign. Denial.

You and I, we're not the same.

I've seen that look in the eye of someone who doesn't know who they are without their high anymore.

Trust me.

You gotta just let it go.

Figuratively, but yeah, that works, too.

One day at a time.

I know that peaceful dark place you're in right now.

And I know the pain you'll be in when you leave it and wake up... to someone that's not quite you anymore.

When I woke up,

I was angry.

I was angry that you were gone, that you'd moved on with your life.

And I was still stuck here, alone with Dad in this shitty old house.

But I was wrong, because I pushed everyone away, and...

...that's including the one person I love with all my heart.

Allison, I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry I wasn't there.

And I won't let you wake up alone.

Well, do you think we really did it?

Think we actually stopped the apocalypse?

Now what?

I don't know.

I'm open to suggestion.

Eh, I'll get it.

Hey, old-timer.

Do you have my sister? And... if not, would you like a margarita?

Come on.

You're here to kill me?

Oh. Shit. Sorry. Old habits.

Well, I can understand why you might feel that way, you know...

Well, you attacked our house, tried to kill my family, and kidnapped my brother.

Well, there's not much I can do about the past.

I'm not the only killer in this room.

You got your own bloody history, pal.

Speaking of which, that job you did in Calhoun, that shit's legendary.

Can't believe I'm actually sittin' here talkin' to you, after all...

Hazel, why are you here?

Well, I'm, you know...

Diego, stop!

Get up!

You know, before you kill him, you might wanna hear what he has to say.

I'm gonna kill you for what you did to Patch.

Or don't. See how that goes.

Are you gonna...

Come on!

That's gotta hurt.

I draw the line at biting.

Hazel, whatever you came here to say, I suggest you make it quick, before he comes round.

I left my partner, quit the Commission, came to volunteer.

For what? To help stop the apocalypse.


What on earth could be so funny to you right now?

Before I answer that, why do you wanna help us?

Let's just say I have a vested interest in a doughnut shop.

Well, I hate to break it to you, pal, but you're a day late and a dollar short.

The fact that you're here right now means, without a shadow of a doubt, that the apocalypse is over.

Really? How do you know?

The mark is dead. Found him this morning.

You were the last known unknown left in the equation.

Shit. Really?

Mm-hmm. And if you're out, then Hellrider ain't riding.


All right.




So now what?

You know, to be honest, I don't know.

I've been chasing this thing for so long, I...

I never really thought about the day after.

I don't know. What about you?

I'm done with all this madness.

Time to start over.

You should do the same.

That's easier said than done.

It doesn't have to be hard.

I mean, think about it like this. If you never time traveled, you never got caught up with the Handler, what would have happened?

I guess I would have grown up to be an emotionally stunted man-child like everybody else around here.

Well, there you go.

Now you can grow up.

Good luck.


One more thing before you go. Shoot.

Which one of you was the trigger man for Detective Patch?

Trigger woman.

Huh. That's too bad.

That gun could have cleared my brother's name.

Well, today's your lucky day, amigo.

Take 'em both.

I'm done with this life.

You have three new voice messages.

First message.

Vanya, this is Mrs. Kowalski. Mr. Puddles is missing again.

If you see him, will you call me? Thanks.

Next message.

This is Peter from the Icarus Theater.

Just wanted to remind you we've left the concert tickets you've asked for at the box office. Your guests can pick them up any time.

Next message.

Hey, Vanya, it's me.

I just wanted to...

Things have gotten so messed up.

All I ever wanted was to be a good sister to you.

Guess I pretty much failed at that.

But you need to call me, okay?

I love you, sis.

I'm sorry!

Allison? Oh... I'm here.

I'm here.

I'm here.

No. Don't try to talk. Don't try to talk.

It will cause more damage, all right?

Allison, I'm so sorry I wasn't there.

It's okay.


Oh, okay. Hang on. Wait.



Uh, we don't know where she is.


Uh... I don't understand.

I do.

It's time for the last of your father's secrets to come to light.


Good, you're up.

Ready for a drink now?

Where is he?

I let him go.

You what?

Now that the apocalypse is over, it's time for the fighting to stop.

Hey, he didn't kill Patch. His partner Cha-Cha did.

So what?

They were both there that night.

This half of the partnership gave me both of their guns.

Which will clear you, because the ballistics will match Patch's crime scene.

Hazel came here looking for a way out.

He wanted a fresh start. And he happened to have in his possession the one thing that could do our family a little good.

So it's time to move on. Not a chance.

Suit yourself.

I am curious.

Your girlfriend, Patch.

What did you like about her?

A lot of things.

Cute butt. Nice legs.

Anything a little more profound than that?

She believed in people.

No matter how much shit and filth she saw on the streets.

She always saw the good inside.

Well, I'm sure she'll be proud to know that you're killing Hazel and Cha-Cha as a way to honor her memory.



Is Allison... She survived.

Thank God.

What happened?

We got in an argument.

And things got out of control.

I didn't mean to hurt her.

Please, you have to believe me. I do.

It was an accident.

And I was... I was angry, and... uh, it just happened.

Could I see her?

She's resting now.

Maybe later.

Is it okay if I wait here for a bit?

Of course.

This is your home.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

I didn't mean it...

I didn't mean...

I can see that, Vanya.

You're hurting me.

I'm sorry too, Vanya.


Please stop.

I'm sorry.






No, let me...

You locked up our sister because you think she has powers.

No, I know she does. Pogo told me.

He's always known, and so did Dad.

Why would they hide this from us?

I mean, am I the only one that didn't know this place existed?

He hid so much from us. He hid it because he was afraid... of her.

Oh, that's ridiculous. Is it?

Dad's lied about everything else, why is this so far-fetched?

If you're right, then maybe she's the one who killed Peabody.

And cut Allison's throat. Whoa, no. Let's...

I ju... Sorry, just, let's go back, all right?

This is Vanya we're talking about.

Our sister.

The one who always cried when we stepped on ants as kids.

Yeah, I know. I know it's difficult to accept...

It's not difficult to accept, it's impossible to accept.

No, he's right. Look, we can't keep her locked up without proof.

Wh... What more proof do you need?

Why don't we just open the door and ask her?

No, she's not goin' anywhere.

No, even if you're right, she needs our help, and we can't do that if she's locked in a cage.

Yeah, and for all we know, she might be struggling with this new power.

I mean, it must be scary. Terrifying, really, to discover that you can do something that you never thought you could do.

Look, if what Pogo told me is even half true, then she is not just a danger to us.

Allison, what are you doing down here? You should be in bed.

I can't do that. She hurt you.

I'm sorry, but she's staying put.

Just until we know what we're dealing with.

She stays put.

Come on.

Come on. You need to rest.

I'm sorry! I'm sorry!

Come on. Let's go.

No! No! No! No!

I'm sorry!


I told you I was gonna make you watch your girlfriend die.

Okay, Cha-Cha.

Let her go.

You can kill me however you want.

Oh, I intend to do that as well.

Right after I make you watch her die.

And it's okay, you can... say it.

We always were an unlikely pair.

This isn't easy for me, Delores, and I...

I want you to know that I cherish every single minute I ever shared with you, all 23 and a half million of them.

A lifetime.

Now look at us.

We're lucky enough, we get a second one.


You are right.

I do have a lot of growing up to do.

I'll never forget you, Delores.

Excuse me, miss? Yeah?

Could you give that mannequin something new to wear?

She likes sequins.

They're still afraid of us.

Even after all these years.

Afraid of our power.

You're not real.

We killed Leonard.

Because he lied to us.

Not about everything.

What are you talking about?

You know.

You've always known.

Our brothers and sister, they're just like Dad, driven to keep us down, a muted voice, isolated from the group, never in the limelight, never the center of attention.

It will never end.

Not until we act.

But they're our family.

They fear you now. They're gonna keep you in here forever.


Do you remember what that was like?

Staring at these gray walls, hour after hour, day after day while they played together?

Do you want to live like this for the rest of our lives? No. No.

I can't breathe in here.

I can't breathe in here.

Then do something about it.

Embrace who we are.

I can't...

Who we've been all along.

Oh, my God.
