Ep 11

County Cork, Ireland. Record on the turntable. The baby loves this song. Only thing that'll put her to sleep. Besides, it's our song. Baby cries. He hears screams. He's in pain. His eyes bleed. He beats his head on the wall over and over. Banshee licks his blood. The woman banishes it finally. Baby cries as her mother collapses.

Sam dreaming about Lucifer's words. He wakes and gets dressed. Dean asks how long you been up? Don't know. You haven't left the bunker in days. Sam says he's fine. Dean says I found a case. Sam's cleaning weapons. Dean says it's 15 minutes from here. Sam says what about Cas? We haven't heard from him. Dean says he'll be fine, he always is.

LuciCas sits on a bench in a park. Then takes the nature walk. A man follows him. Luci whistles as he walks. Stops at a big tall tree. Angel sees him. Luci says it's beautiful out here. Angel wants to stab him. Lucifer says I'm your only hope at beating the Darkness. You don't need to be afraid, Brother. I'm here to save you all. Angel goes after him again and Lucifer makes him explode. You rank and file have no vision.

Impala stops at a senior center. Oak Park Retirement Living. Talk to the manager. Harold yelled Get it out of my head. I found him on his back. His skull.....there was a lot of blood. No one was in or out of his room all night. Dean meets Mildred. Manager stays at the home. His wife left him. With text emojis. I wish she'd call me back. Dean asks if he's noticed strange smells, sounds, cold spots? No. Harold have enemies? Actually, quite a few.

Sam in the dead man's room. Finds stolen Viagra. Dean says that's a real dick move. LOL. Dean has files on everyone that's passed here. Jake filed a complaint against Harold for stealing.

They dig up Jake Townsend to salt and burn. Dean asks Sam if he's okay? Sam says no, not at all. Being so close to Lucifer again brought stuff up. Dean asks if he wants to talk about it. Sam says no. Dean says case closed. Sam opens the coffin. Sam says just burn the bones so we can go home.

Oak Park. Mildred and Arthur. Arthur hears screaming. Lights flicker. He sees the banshee thing. She doesn't. He screams to get it out of his head. Beats his head on a window. Falls out of it. Banshee goes after him. Feeds. Mildred sees it. Screams.

Dean and Sam interview Mildred. She says you won't believe me. No one does. Sam asks what did she see? Mildred describes the banshee. Sam approaches a maid. Marlene. She wasn't working the nights of the deaths. She's deaf. Sam and Dean reconvene.

Deaf woman reads their lips.

Sam says part of Harold's frontal lobe was. Dean says banshees. Only people that can hear them scream are the victims. Prey on the vulnerable. They hunt at the same place until it's picked clean. We need a gold blade. Dean goes back to the bunker to get a couple. You stay and figure out who's next.

Dean hears noises in the bunker. Draws his gun. More crashes. It's Casifer. Hello, Dean. I'm sorry. Dean asks what he was doing? Cas says looking for a spell to draw Amara out. I had her in my sights and should've ended it. Dean says I've had 2 shots at Amara and struck out both times. Cas asks him to tell everything.

Sam visits Mildred in her room. She offers tea. He says we're not FBI. We hunt monsters. She says I knew it! You're too cute to be FBI agents. He shows her the banshee text. He says they prey on the vulnerable. You have Afib, which can be treated with meds... She asks if she's next. He says you're safe right now. Rest while you can. We'll be back. And do you know Marlene? She's deaf? She says Marlene is on vacation. My granddaughter is deaf, so if there's a staff member that's deaf, I'd love to talk to them.

Sam looks for "Marlene". She rounds a corner. Sam goes in the laundry room and shuts the door. Turns on the light. She does a spell and sticks him to the wall. UH OH.

**A banshee walking around as a deaf human is a nice touch.

She has a gold dagger! Thinks they're banshees. He says no, we're hunters! I swear. Test me, please. She cuts him. Then frees him. Thanks. My name is Sam Winchester. She says the banshee killed my parents. She was the Irish baby. A hunter found me in my crib, ears bleeding. Lilian trained her. Died from cancer. On her own since her teens. Her mom was part of a secret org. Men of Letters? Yeah. We're like you. Legacies.

Dean and Casifer. Dean says the connection to Amara scares him. I don't know if I can resist it. Cas says it may help draw her out. Could be a good thing. Sam calls and tells him to look up a name.

Dean goes to the files. Edward Durbin the 2nd. Her mom banished the banshee. We'll use the same Celtic spell Aileen used to trap me. Dean doesn't like using Mildred for bait. Dean always like Blanche on Golden Girls. Sam like Sofia. Dean is on his way. Asks Cas to keep this quiet. Cas agrees and says next time you face Amara, you won't be alone.

Sam paints the symbols. Aileen says not bad. Now we wait. Sam asks if she's okay? She says if this is the banshee I've been looking for.... Sam says revenge isn't all it's cracked up to be. She never met her parents, but they're family. My Family. Sam says then what? She says no idea. My mother was a lawyer. Sam says I was studying law at Stanford when my brother came to get me. I wouldn't do this without him. Dean arrives. Introductions. Dean hands Sam a blade. Where's Mildred? She walks in. Grabs Dean to show him something. Sit. I won't bite. West-facing room to see the sunset. She says it's almost as gorgeous as you are. Heh. She asks when is the last time he watched a sunset without waiting for something to go bump in the night. She asks if this all works? He says yep. Everything will be fine. He asks what she did before retiring. She was in a Patsy Cline tribute band. I had my fun. She says follow your heart. Do that, and all the rest figures itself out. I traveled the world, made people smile, and then my heart said you're done. I had my fill and I retired and i love it. Dean promises she'll live through this. Her hand on his knee. He gets up. Dean hears the screams. Sam! Dean collapses. Eyes bleeding. Sees the banshee.

Banshee disappears. Then is behind Aileen. Tosses her. Sam cuts it. Gets tossed. Deans beats his head on the wall. Mildred locks the banshee on the wall. Aileen stabs it. Mildred and Sam rush to Dean. Sam thanks Aileen.

Morning. Sam asks Aileen how she feels. Like it was another kill. What now? She says this is my life. Sam tells her to call any time.

Dean and Mildred. She's still flirting. You're pining for someone else. Follow your heart, remember? Dean says I'm single and ready to mingle. LOL. You boys stay out of trouble. Mildred signs that the boys look even cuter walking away. LOL!

Hmmmm, ten minutes left.

Sam tosses Dean a can. Cas is gone. Something a little off about him. Sam says there always is. You were right, by the way. Getting back on the job helped. When I was with Lucifer, he showed me things. A highlight reel of my biggest failures. I should've looked for you when you were in Purgatory. I stopped, and I've never forgiven myself for it. Dean says I have. What matters is that we're together, so shut up and drink your beer. Can you sleep tonight? Yeah. Dean has some ringing in his head, but nothing good music can't help. Sam asks why the banshee went after Dean? Dean lies.

Sam puts an Oak Park brochure in his keepsake box.

Dean lays down in bed. Hey, music!!
Sam gets in bed. Turns out the light.

Dean can't sleep. He sits up. Amara's getting to him.

Next week - Claire. Sheriff Mills.

Press want to talk to Peggy. Sousa tells them to clear out. Dr. Wilkes' house. Peggy feels guilty. Sousa hasn't heard from Thompson. Peggy finds a hollow floor spot. Cash, plane ticket to Moscow, a Russian passport. An agent found a gun under the bed, too. Peggy thinks Isodyne is framing Dr. Wilkes.

A Western set. Director calls cut. Peggy and Jarvis are in the shot. Stark's production. Peggy shows him the film. Stark says this could be the greatest find of the century. He recognizes the Arena Club pin. Since the 1906. They've been trying to recruit Stark. But women aren't allowed. They have to remind him who Dottie Underwood is, LOL.

Whitney still has the black crack on her forehead. It was her idea to make Wilkes a spy. Hubby asks her why she isn't at work. She says she wasn't feeling well. She asks him about retiring from acting. He says after the campaign, right? Of course. He says we win the election and you can retire and have all the babies you want.

Thompson is in the office. Surprise. He changed Peggy's incident report. She asks about Dottie. Jack says it doesn't concerns her. She won't sign the report. Jack does it for her. Sousa's not happy with Jack's attitude. Peggy storms out, and things are floating on her desk!!

Peggy visits Howard again. Lots of women in and around the pool. Howard comes down. Peggy wants to plant listening devices in the club. She takes his drink. LOL.

Jack watches the Isodyne reel. Uh oh. Someone knocks. Vernon. Been briefed on Isodyne? Jack says the report will be very not controversial. Vernon wants sensitive material recovered from Wilkes. The material could be disastrous in the wrong hands. Don't be a Boy Scout, Jack. Thompson says he'll let him know if he finds anything.

The club. Howard and Jarvis getting the tour. Howard wants his martini now. Finds the place overly dull. He brings young ladies in. This way to the bar, ladies. Peggy sneaks in during the distraction. She starts planting bugs.

Jarvis gets behind the bar.

Peggy sneaks in the library. The bookcase moves. Council leaves. She goes in the hidden board room. Looks at newspapers with future dates. Someone's coming. She hides under the table. Plants a bug. Hears it buzz and takes it off and smashes it. Someone enters. Uh oh.

Man has a gun. Turns around and goes to the phone. Calls security. Peggy crawls behind a chair. Makes the broken bug smoke. Then sneaks out before the door closes. Gets caught in the hallway. Jarvis comes and says the powder room is that way.

They get out. Howard takes his girls home.

Thompson is not happy with Peggy. She says the Arena Club is fabricating the future. Tomorrow's date on the newspaper. Calvin Chadwick wins a seat on the Senate. Thompson says it's a serious accusation. But the bugs were destroyed and she couldn't bring out the newspapers. She calls Jack a coward. He says she's done here. Get on the next plane to New York. Sousa follows her and says he's not wrong. I believe in you, but Wilkes went in of his free will. He sees the floating office supplies. She says don't touch me. I could be contaminated.

Shows Howard. Metal floats around her. Temp around her is 7 degrees cooler than the rest of the room. Howard says you're not freezing or contaminated with zero matter. The gravitational field around her is disrupted. They go in Howard's lab. He and Jarvis have been working on a formula to make other wavelengths visible and photographical. It's Wilkes!!! Peggy's hand passes through him.

Wilkes is trying to talk. Howard says say AH. He sprays Wilkes throat, lol. Now he's audible. He's been shadowing Peggy hoping she'd notice him. He tells them what happened. Whitney Frost showed up. Had a gun. Wanted zero matter. I took the brunt of the explosion. He fades away again. Howard says we'll figure this out.

Gives a shopping list to Jarvis. You and Peggy make a great team. Just let me know if I need a new butler. I'm great, but so is she. Howard will help Peggy all he can. Jarvis and Howard leave. Peggy wants to check into Whitney. Sousa will do some digging.

Peggy visits Whitney at her dressing room. Asks about Isodyne. Whitney plays dumb. Peggy asks about the work. Whitney says she doesn't know a thing. Peggy says a security guard saw you there. Whitney says they're mistaken. Peggy trusts her instincts. Things aren't what they seem. Whitney is summoned to work.

Jack and Vernon. He gives Vernon the film reel. Jack says I trust you. Vernon says if it was up to me, you'd get a medal for this. Doing a great service for the United States. Jack says that's all I wanted to do. They shake hands. Is Jack finally starting to figure out he's working with the wrong man here?

Wilkes is back. Howard wants coffee. Wilkes doesn't know if he can fix this. She says you're in the best hands imaginable. You've impressed Howard Stark and you've impressed me. Howard couldn't find coffee. LOL.

Sousa in the files. Jack looks at it. Hands it back. Carter's still a pistol. Asks Sousa about a broken heart. Sousa says he's getting engaged. Really? Yeah. Jack offers to buy him a drink. Sousa says next time. Jack leaves.

Whitney rants about Peggy. Wants Cal to do something about her. Official channels won't cut it. Let Mr. Hunt take care of her. Cal says he can't. She sobs and says she scares me. She threatened me. She knows about Wilkes. She's using me to get to you. I would hate if this caught the Council's attention. Cal says he'll take care of it. Call Mr. Hunt right now. Once he's gone, she stops crying.

Peggy working out on the hit bag. Jarvis is ready to turn in. Anything I might do to help? She says no. He offers to get her a sparring partner. She's fine. Goodnight. Mr. Hunt grabs her from behind, trying to choke her. She takes him into the pool. And comes up. He attacks her on the deck. Jarvis hits him. Peggy shoots at him. He gets away. Jarvis checks on her.

Morning. Jarvis improving security. Peggy asks Howard if he's slept. Nope. He's off to Peru. Abner Brody. Howard's still had way too much caffeine. Wilkes says Howard is a menace, but more than alright. Peggy apologizes for asking him to go in the lab. He says better me than you. I can't stay here. She says you'll be as good as dead. You need us! And we need you. You're our best asset against Whitney Frost. You're not going anywhere. He capitulates. Her not wanting him to leave is reason enough to stay.

Sousa asks if she's okay. Yeah. She put a bullet in the assailant's hand. Whitney Frost is the brain behind Isodyne. It's her stage name.

Jack and Vernon. In the club! Meet Calvin Chadwick. Jack sees the paper about the senator that resigned. They share drinks.

Man visits Whitney. Studio wants to replace her. Looking for a fresh face. He told them no one treats his star that way and they folded. She thanks him. Hugs him. He doesn't want to let go. You're so beautiful. He sees the crack. She gets upset and absorbs him into the zero matter! Inside her. The crack lengthens.

Next week - Carter kidnaps Mr. Hunt.

And my brother's going to walk through that door and kick you ass. Lucifer is amused. Sam, you got me all wrong. I'm not here to torture ya. I could....delicious, perfect pain. But that was so 5 years ago. I'm not going to harm a glorious little hair on that glorious little head. You need me and I'll prove it to you.

They're in a memory. One from Sam's childhood. Young Sam sitting with a girl.

Crowley tells Rowena you're dead. You betrayed me in my kingdom! She says it's his. I'm his! You're willing to stake your life on Sam Winchester? Crowley asks how long? She says not long. Lucifer came in a dream. He asks about the coven. She says Lucifer is perfection. He has a plan. Crowley says he's the Devil. I'm a bad thing. He's a worse thing. Lucifer wanted death for every being last time. She says he's changed. Crowley asks why. She says after Lucifer stops the Darkness, he'll ascend to Heaven and I'll be by his side. He fought the Darkness before and won. Sit down, shut up, and let him work.

Dean in the Impala. Calls Sam. Call me. Now! Calls Crowley. His vision goes funky. He stops the car and throws up outside. Cas appears. Are you alright? Dean pukes again. Cas says you're not alright. Stick out your tongue. LOL. How far are we from the event? Dean says about a mile away. Cas says you're suffering from smiting sickness. Closer you get, the sicker you become. Last time, Lot's wife turned to salt. Dean, you need to go back. Cas will go alone. Dean says okay. I'll go check on Sam. If it did work and she is dead, bring her body out. And if she's not? Run.

Sam's memory. Telling the girl about Aztec temples. He was in Mexico last year with John and Dean. Girl tells Sam I didn't bring you here to study. You didn't? No. You're smart and funny and cute, so, if you wanna make out.... Lucifer cheers when they kiss. You used to be a hero, Sam. Now.....I don't even recognize you.

Dean in MOL HQ. Calling for Sam. Phone rings. Crowley. Where's Sam? Crowley says your brother's in Hell with Lucifer.

Lucifer takes Sam to the cemetery where Sam beat him and they went in the cage. Cas says Hey, assbutt, and burns Michael. Lucifer says in this moment, you had balls, Kid. You were willing to do the hard thing. Sam and Adam fall in the Pit. Lucifer says you've gone soft, Sammy.

Cas at the smite site. Finds a young Asian woman. An angel. She's heard stories about Castiel. He asks why are you here? Same as you. Heaven wants to know if the Darkness is destroyed. She asks if he's going to kill her? No. She says she's seen nothing weird East. He says it's the middle of the afternoon. Why is it dark?

Dean leaves a message for Cas. Need you at 3rd and Pine in Nebraska because I'm going to Hell. Dean knocks. Password. Camptown ladies sing this song, doo da, doo da...LOL!!! She's Billy. The Reaper. He asks if she works for Crowley? She says with, not for. Strange days, Winchester. She gives him a box. Takes him to a door and opens it. Watch your step. It's a long way down. Heh. He walks in. She closes the doors.

Sam's memory. The worst thing Sam has done. Lucifer says you were here, with a girl and a dog. You didn't even look for Dean. He came back and you're not fine. What happened to the Sam that will sacrifice for the greater good? You do every stupid thing you could. You and Dean are the problem. You can't stand to lose Dean and he can't lose you. No matter how many people die. You know I'm right, Sam. To beat the Darkness, yo have to be ready to die. Watch the people you love die. You can't win this one, you're not strong enough.

Crowley and Rowena have tea. They take their tea the same way!! Crowley leaves.

Cas and the angel girl. She doesn't hate him. We have a lot in common. We're both expendable. That's why we're here, right? Sam and Dean Winchester are the real heroes. If the Darkness kills us, no big loss. We do the job. There's nobility in that. Coming? He says he'll catch up.

Dean continues down stairs. Crowley says welcome to Hell. Lucifer needs Sam. He won't kill him. We need to focus on Rowena. We need her to slam the Devil back in his hole. He opens the box. It's a witch catcher. Billy came through.

Angel wandering. Sees a woman on the ground. Amara's body. She wakes and grabs the angel's throat.

Cas runs to the angel. Sees Amara suck her soul. Darkness gathers to Amara and the light is back. Amara sees him. Castiel. Amara. What did you do to her? Consumed her. Grace, memories, everything. She really hit the spot. You and a shiny knife? Sure, that's going to work. You reek of fear and self-loathing. You are expendable, and weak. My brother always did have horrible taste in men. You look a bit used up. Plus......I have a job for you. She sends him away. And is unsteady on her feet.

Billy reading. Cas arrives. Hey.

Rowena asks how's Dean? Check your pockets. Hex bag. She heard everything. Dean says not that it matters. Crowley says never accept tea from someone that loathes you. She chokes and coughs. Dean puts the collar on her. Crowley tells her to hop on one foot. Bollocks. Dean says let's do this.

Sam and Lucifer in the sage. Luci says clock ticking. Say yes. Okay, you don't like me. Sometimes, I don't like me, either. Gabriel and Rafael are dead, God is gone. Michael's singing show tunes and touching himself. So I'm it. The Darkness is the end of everything. But I can beat her. We can beat her, you and me, together. Come on, Sam. Make the right choice. Sacrifice one more time, man. Time to save the world, man. Sam says no. No.

Rowena doing the spell. Dean asks how long it'll take? She says 5 minutes. Unless Sam says yes. Lucifer will be anchored to Earth if he has a vessel. Cas says Amara is alive. Sent a message on Cas's chest - I am coming.

Sam says it's over. You talk a good game. Almost had me sold. But what if you're right? Let's say you gank her. Then what? Then you start the apocalypse again. Lucifer says it's better than what she has planned! Sam says everyone else loses. So no. My answer is no. This is about me having faith in my friends, my family. We will find a way. I'm ready to die and I'm ready to watch people die, but I'm not ready to be your bitch. Lucifer says okay, plan B, and hits Sam.

Dean runs in. Cas says hey, Assbutt. Luci says welcome to the party.

Sam spits blood. Dean's not scared. Cas has the angel sword. Lucifer turns on music. Heaven must be missing an angel. Cas rushes him. Dean goes to Sam. Luci punches Cas. Dean tells Sam we just have to last a few minutes.

Rowena lights the spell.

Sam and Dean try to fight Lucifer. Luci grabs Dean by the throat. Say the magic word or your brother dies. We both know you won't let that happen.

Rowena cuts her hand.

Cas grabs Luci. Lucifer punches Cas.

Rowena chants. Claps.

Bright light in the cage. Lucifer is gone.

Rowena says you're welcome. Dean says bite me. What now? Crowley says no clue. We're done. Team-up over. Rowena stays. Rest of you get the hell out of Hell.

Topside. Dean asks Cas if he's alright. Yes. I will be. Cas says he'll catch up. Sam salutes, then gets in the car. Sam asks if he's alright? Dean says tough day. You good? Sam doesn't know. What if Lucifer was telling the truth? Dean says no. Her and the Devil is a nightmare.

Crowley asks Rowena why she hates him. She says I see the woman I used to be before magic. Nothing but Rowena the tanner's daughter. I hate you because when you were born, your father said he loved me, then went back to his grand life in the grand house. I hate you because if I didn't, I'd love you. And love is weakness. I'll never be weak again. Castiel is back. Guess again. Oh no!

Cas asked can you really beat her? Lucifer says I can. Cas said yes!

I'm back, baby! Rowena says if he was in a vessel.... Loophole.... Lucifer tosses Cas. Then sets Rowena free. You deserve a reward. A token of my affection. Oh. One question. Can anyone else open the cage? She says Just me. He says Good. He snaps her neck. Okay. Let's chat.

Next week - Sam and Dean find a case. And Lucifer is strange.

How's that working for you? Treat him as your brother to get through. Show him you're the man that goes to the ends of the earth for the people he loves.

Laurel and Thea at the hospital. Thea's nervous about Anarky. And I can't seem to win for losing. I ran into Damian and he tried to use his magic mojo, but after that, my bloodlust was better. And now that guy is out there and it's my fault. Laurel says you can't think that way.

Green Arrow hits Anarky. Then reaches for an arrow. Thea says there's something you need to hear. Felicity is out of surgery. Donna texted me. You need to go.

Diggle says I did what I did because I love you. You're still my little brother. Do you think Damian Darhk gives a damn about you? Andy says he believes the world needs a reset. Diggle says Darhk crossed a line. I'm begging you, brother to brother. Where can I find Darhk? Andy says he used to talk about Stonehaven, how the leaves looked in autumn. Diggle thanks him. Andy says now we're even.

Anarky tries to talk to Speedy. I owe you a thank you. You burned away my weakness. She threatens him if he won't shut up. He says why hold back? I see it in your eyes, the hunger to deliver death. Police sirens. She leaves.

Oliver gets to the hospital. Donna asks where he's been? Felicity has a new diagnosis. They can't fix her. Oliver sits. What do you mean? Donna says The damage to her spinal cord is permanent. She'll never walk again. Oliver wants a second opinion. Donna says This is the other doctor, from Central City. There is no better diagnosis. Oliver needs to see Felicity.

Island. Oliver still being flogged. Boss says stop. He saw the signs on Oliver's abdomen. Oliver takes Conklin's gun. Oliver puts the gun to his chin. I'm not running.

Green Arrow frees Anarky from the police van. We didn't finish our conversation. Anarky isn't talking. Not giving up his vendetta against Darhk. Arrow breaks the cuffs. You make sure he's dead.

Laurel asks Oliver if he's completely lost his mind? Oliver says this vendetta is not personal. She says do you actually believe that? He says he put a tracker on Anarky. Diggle walks in. Laurel says Oliver broke Anarky out of custody. Oliver says if either of you has a problem, you know where the door is. Diggle asks to talk. You've come so far. Recovered your humanity. Don't lose who made her fall in love with you in the first place.

Thea visits Alex. I can't do this. My anger management issues are less manageable than I thought. Alex wants to help. She says he can't. Can't be helped. He doesn't believe that. You have steel inside you. That's what drew me to you in the first place. She thanks him. I'm just not ready. He says when you are, I'll be here.

Arrow Cave. Thea returns. Tense in here. Diggle updates her. Thea's not happy. Diggle says the signal is dead. We lost him. Oliver doesn't know what to do now. Diggle says go see Felicity. Now. She needs you. You need her, too. Thea says we're going to figure this out, but right now you need to go be with her.

Oliver enters the hospital room. She's awake. He says sorry I didn't come by sooner. It's unforgivable. She says only if you were in Bali. She knows he was looking for Darhk. Tell me you haven't gone off the rails. He says I can't help but think that Darhk is winning because I haven't been willing to go far enough. Maybe you wouldn't be in here now. What's the point of being Green Arrow if I can't protect the people close to me? She reminds him what the doctors said and says maybe the reason you haven't been here is because..... Oliver brings out the engagement ring. Puts it on her hand. The nurse took this off you in the ER. How dare she. For better or worse. Kisses her.

Island. Oliver says he'll help find what yo want if Taiana is safe. Conklin says he'll turn on you. Oliver says do we have a deal or not? Boss says take them both to prison. Then says Conklin alive isn't necessary.

Peggy says I called on several occasions. Why didn't you return the messages? He says because sometimes a 3 hour time difference feels like a lifetime. Meet the detective. Peggy has an idea.

Body is still frozen through. Can't do an autopsy, yet. Stab wounds are consistent. Peggy asks do we know what caused the lake to freeze? No. And the body glows in the dark! Peggy says fetch a chisel.

It's not ice. Don't know what it is. Lab tech gets snippy. Why don't you invite me when you agents grab drinks? LOL. The glow means the woman was near a particle accelerator. There's one at Isodyne Energy.

Peggy with Wilkes. Tells him they need to know exactly what Henry told him. He asks Peggy for dinner and dancing as thanks for saving his life. She calls him brave, but she makes it a policy not to get involved with persons on cases.

Pokes her until she tosses him. He takes her down when she offers a hand. Anna says tea is on. Peggy wants a ride to the office. 

Rose and Sousa. Daniel, you're a nice guy. Tell her. They find Peggy talking with a nurse that dropped off cookies. Asks Peggy to join her and Daniel for dinner. You're coming. She kisses Daniel's cheek and leaves. Peggy gets back to work. LOL.

Jane's body is taken and the men killed. There's a hitman in town. 

Chadwick in a club. The gentlemen are in the meeting room. Secret room. Chadwick enters. Lots of recognizable faces. Isodyne will be shut down and liquidated. Your experiments have yielded no results. You've put our interests in jeopardy. Chadwick says this substance is potentially priceless. Could make us billions. He's told the decision's been made. Tonight, our men will clear out the lab. Don't take this personally, Calvin. Focus on the senate race. Yeah. You're right. 

Bodies pulled out of the LA river. No sign of Jane's body. Peggy says this case is much larger than we thought. They have a warrant for Isodyne. Radiation danger sign. Peggy spots Wilkes. Lab is under isolation. Peggy says I'm going to find out what Isodyne is up to. They leave the facility. Wilkes gave her an address and meet time. 

Wilkes sneaks into an office. Picks the file lock. Steals a film reel. Atomic test in the Mojave Desert. Someone saw him leave the office. 

Dunbar Hotel. Sousa tells Peggy she'll need back-up. She says I can handle it myself. He insists. A box falls out of his jacket. Engagement ring. Peggy says please tell Violet I won't make it. I'm happy for you, Daniel. 

Peggy considering dresses. Anna helps out. Picks out dresses suitable for dancing. Purple will be perfect. 

Jarvis shows Peggy to the car that Stark had tricked out. Even has a tracking device. It's a sex car, lol. 

Peggy walks in the place. Wilkes wanted to meet in public where they wouldn't get a lot of looks. He offers drinks. She says nothing for me. Not here for small talk. He says this morning I was escorted into a conference room with lawyers. Treason, prison, hanging.....lots of fun. Before I risk my career and my life, I'd like to know more about the woman I'm trusting. She orders a whiskey, neat. 

Whitney Frost on set. A kiss in the rain. Scene cut. Take 5. Director tells make-up to get rid of the lines on her face. And that her waist isn't small enough. 

Peggy tells a story. Wilkes is entertained. Singer starts. Wilkes says this is my song. Don't worry, I can dance and spill my guts at the same time. Peggy complies. She asks if Chadwick killed Jane Scott? No. But he would kill to cover up the research. It's bigger than you think it is. Best way to explain is to show you. Come on. Hitman is at the bar! Follows them out. 

Frost storms into her dressing room. Chadwick tells her they're scrapping it. Everything. She's not amused. Zero matter can make atomic as obsolete as the steam engine. You let them walk all over you like you always do! He says they're scrubbing the lab tonight. The Council wants me to focus on the senate campaign. Isn't that better for both of us? She nods. You're going to make a wonderful senator. I love you. I love you. That's my girl. But she doesn't look happy still. 

Peggy stops the car at Griffith Observatory. Wilkes loves it up here. Helps him keep perspective. He grew up working in the orange groves with his family. She asks how he made it to the laboratory. He worked a second job here. Then the War gave me opportunity. Applied to 16 companies and Isodyne was the only one to employ me. She's enjoyed herself this evening, but if this is only for a view, I'll be very cross. He plays the film reel. Rocket test. Didn't go as planned. There's an anomaly. It sucks everything in. Only one thing left behind. They call it Zero Matter. Unlike any substance we've ever seen. More dangerous than anything we've ever known. 

Hit guys pop the tires. Charge in. 

Wilkes tells her zero matter is the coldest object in the room. Jane must've made physical contact. I maintain the chamber to contain it. He says it could be not of this Earth. She says you and I are going to Isodyne tonight to steal it. They hear the men. Shots fired. Wilkes leads her out of the building. She turns on the tracker. 

Jarvis trying to catch the flamingo. Anna sees the signal. Come in now. There's a sock on the doorknob. 

Peggy tells Wilkes to follow. Cover me while I get this started. She works on another car. Gets it started. Get in! Wilkes climbs in the passenger side, dodging bullets. The men get in a 3rd car and follow her. 

Car radiator pops. Wilkes directs her to an alley. Kill the lights. Car goes past while they hide. She finds a pin. What do we do? She says we walk until we find a phone. 

Violet and Rose chatting. Daniel is ready to go. Clown sitting in the lobby. Phone rings. Rose says call for you. Jarvis. SOS from Miss Carter. At Griffith Observatory. 

They find a phone booth. No change. Enter a shop. The man says you'll have to buy something. Peggy insults him. Wilkes says the eclair ain't half bad. LOL. Gonna punch all of LA? Maybe, I could do with a hobby. Car coming. Peggy pulls him in the phone booth. Don't move. Is it them? What? No. We're safe, then. He kisses her. She kisses him back. I have an idea. We're going to steal that car. LOL. 

Sousa and Jarvis return to the SSR. Sousa goes in his office and beats on a cabinet. Then gives out orders. Get every badge in the city looking for Wilkes. Jarvis, we're going to Isodyne. I'm through playing nice. 

Peggy and Wilkes get to Isodyne. She'll take care of the men. You get the zero matter. 

Wilkes has a containment tube. He sends it to the containment chamber and sucks in the matter. Tube returns. Whitney Frost finds him. Uh-oh! 

Peggy attacks the men outside. 

Wilkes tells Frost it's not safe to be here. She says I'm surprised to see you alive. Place the specimen in that case and give it to me. She pulls a gun. Hand it over. 

Peggy knocks out all the men. 

Wilkes won't give her the matter. You're smart enough not to shoot me while I'm holding this. She attacks him. The tube drops and breaks. The matter is loose. 

Peggy hurries in. Dr. Wilkes? Jason? She finds a hole in the concrete wall. 

Sousa and Jarvis and the police etc. here. Daniel's relieved Peggy is alive. She rambles out what happened. He says stop, are you okay? Yes. Dr. Wilkes? No. Peggy, go home. Jarvis is relieved she's unharmed. She asks for a ride home. 

Sousa the day after. Violet on the porch. Everything okay? He says I'm fine, Peggy's fine. I'm tired. So sorry about last night. She says it's alright. I just like knowing you're safe. He says he'll make it up to her. She brought a bear claw for him. He asks her to call when she's off work. Deal. She kisses him. I love you, Daniel. Love you, too. She gets in her car. He hobbles to the door. 

Anna gives Peggy whiskey. Peggy says it's strange it should hit me so hard. Anna doesn't think so. Doesn't take long to realize you met someone special. Peggy wishes she had the chance to know him better. 

Whitney's closet. Chadwick knocking for her. She's shivering on the floor. A cut on her forehead is black. 

This season - Peggy vs. Whitney this season. Sousa's in it with her to the end.

“Pilot, Part 1”

SERIES PREMIERE — In the year 2166, the immortal villain Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) is on the verge of his final victory – total chaos and the utter destruction of humanity. As the world crumbles, the Time Master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) takes matters into his own hands; he travels 150 years into the past to assemble a carefully selected team of heroes and rogues to stop him. Hunter has chosen what seems like an ill-matched group: billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller), known as Captain Cold, and his partner Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), AKA Heat Wave, a pair of career criminals; and Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renée) and Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel) AKA Hawkgirl and Hawkman. Together this unlikely group will attempt to stop one of the most formidable villains of all time, while they must learn how to not only be a team, but heroes as well. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Phil Klemmer and Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg (#101). Original airdate 1/21/2016.
