What was that?
Is the world going to end?
-It is, isn't it?
-And what is this?
You're not sure, are you?
Get a grip, AJ, it's just a video or something.
Maybe Casey used it to contain our twins in the SZ.
They never mentioned the end of the world, Luke.
This thing is really weird.
-They were told their mission was to create a new world.
I mean, why would they need to create a new world unless..
This one was about to be destroyed.
-Knew it. Cat thinks it really is the end of the world.
-Are you serious?
-What if that prediction we've just seen is genuine?
Oh, I'm too young to die.
I'm too beautiful to die.
What if that's what they've been hiding from us all this time?
So, are they taking us too?
How long do we have left?
It does kind of make sense.
I mean, the secrecy, your twins, the mission?
One thing's for sure, they can't spin us a fairytale any longer...
not now we've got this.
Where are you going?
To speak to Lena.
What do you mean, they can't find him?
I want personal tracking on a ten mile radius now.
We can't expand any more resources on this, Lena.
He's not likely to come back anyway, is he?
You don't know Casey. Come with me.
Cat, wait. We need to know more about this thing.
Where did you get that?
Give it to me.
Not until you answer our questions.
And before you start spewing out a load more lies,
we already know most things.
-The mission to Titan, the secret zone.
The place you've kept our twins as prisoners all these years.
Why didn't you tell me I had a brother?
-AJ, no, you've got it all wrong.
-Adam, hear him out please.
We know they've been trained for a mission to Titan.
We didn't believe it at first, couldn't understand why, and then...
Then we saw the recording,
or prediction, or whatever it is, of the apocalypse.
It's just some kind of hoax, right?
-How did you get into D Quadrant?
If you mean the secret zone, my eyes open the doors in there.
-How come I have clearance?
-You shouldn't have and you don't,
not any more.
Stop avoiding the subject. Tell us what's going on.
For pity sake, will someone tell them?
The apocalypse is coming.
We're all going to Titan to escape it.
But that Winters witch said if we did it again we'd be arrested.
Nah, probably all that will happen
is another village ban for those lot.
All? Did he say all?
If there's a village ban, Gregor,
when and how am I ever going to see AJ?
You could always try your giant catapult idea.
Or signalling. I'll miss hanging out with the guys though.
Guys? Or Gaia?
Do you two not have homes to go to? We are closed.
Meet here first thing, Gregor.
I want to talk to you about your signalling idea.
You still haven't said when.
What does ACT stand for?
-What about our twins?
My brother, Lawrence Winters,
found this in a cave here whilst on an archaeological dig.
The cave you denied knowing about.
It showed him the same images that you've just witnessed.
He was in the official military in those days...
The official military?
..but nobody there took him seriously.
So, he retired early, bought the castle
and set up his own research facility.
He believed that the object was some sort of warning
or prophecy from another universe.
From an ancient race of picks he told me.
I admit it, we all thought it was a bit crazy
when he approached us to work for him.
It doesn't matter where it came from.
The prophecy or whatever it was checked out.
There was an asteroid heading towards the Earth.
Lawrence was determined to save a fraction of humankind.
So he formed the ACT,
the Apocalypse Contingency Team.
I said contingency.
His vision was to form a space station on Titan,
he piloted the first mission there.
Your twins have been specially trained to pilot another mission.
When is this asteroid going to hit?
Lawrence's initial research discovered an asteroid
due to enter the Earth's orbit in 2099.
THEY ALL SIGH
-That's ages away.
No, you don't understand.
We've recently discovered another asteroid
which is due to hit a lot sooner.
We're still working on it, but...
..within the next few months.
..the plan's about to change.
We can't save the world...
we can't even save the human race.
We can only save ourselves.
Will Nelly be able to come with us?
The world can't be going to end, it can't be.
So, my parents, are they...?
They're also members of the ACT, yes.
They've been working out of Stockholm,
trying to pinpoint this new asteroid's trajectory.
Why is nobody else doing anything?
The Government, somebody?
-Why aren't we trying to knock this thing...?
-Because we can't see it.
The asteroid is made from mirror matter.
It's invisible to the naked eye.
So, I'm not being funny or anything, but if you can't see it,
how do you know that it's there?
Trust me, it's there.
If mirror matter is present in sufficient abundance,
it can be detected by a process called gravitational...
Will you stop talking science
and start talking people?!
What about Mackenzie?
Everyone in the village?
What about the world? What about my mum?
Even if I knew how to contact her these days, which I don't...
we wouldn't have room.
That is so...
-That is so
Yes, it is.
Now do you see why I didn't want you forming an attachment to Mackenzie?
It's too late.
You see, I'd always questioned Lawrence's original timescales,
so I started to do some research on mirror matter back in the States,
and I developed my own theories,
and we came back to World's End to check out my findings.
And the rest of us?
Were brought here in case those findings were proved correct
and we needed to make our escape.
I take it my parents were also part of this ACT?
-Are they on Titan?
-What? No, no-no.
They disappeared like Casey's father disappeared
and apparently he's on Titan, so...
I honestly don't know where your parents are, I'm so sorry,
but I do know they're not on Titan.
We left here cos you didn't want one of us
put into the astronaut training programme, right?
So you took us away to save us...
..and now you've brought us back to save us all over again?
That's about right.
I'd like to see my sister.
Yeah, erm... Well, it's late.
Maybe tomorrow, yeah?
And I think you'd better check with Lena first.
Right, I think you should stay with us tonight, Cat.
I'll make a bed up for you, OK?
# I'm gonna pick up the pieces and build a Lego house
# If things go wrong we can knock it down
# My three words have two meanings but there's one thing on my mind
# It's all for you
# And it's dark in a cold December but I've got you to keep me warm... #
Can't you go to sleep either?
# If you're broken I will mend you
# And I'll keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on now
# I'm out of touch, I'm out of love,
# I'll pick you up when you're getting down
# And out of all these things I've done
# I think I love you better now
# I'm out of sight I'm out of mind
# I'll do it all for you in time
# And out of all these things I've done
# I think I love you better now
# Now, now... #
The first circle represents the letters A-G.
OK, so like this?
A, B, C, D, E...
No, erm... A-D with the right arm,
E-G with the left.
It was good of your mum to let us use these old curtains.
She didn't, I just took them.
-And the second circle.
-What second circle?
I don't know, I'm just reading what it says in the book.
-Gregor, I need you to mind the cafe.
Why don't we just ask my mum to take our messages?
Nice one, Gregor.
-Trips to the village are out of the question.
You can't see Mackenzie any more.
Major Javadi, what's going on?
He says I can't come in.
Hello, Moira. I'm afraid, after our security breach yesterday,
we're having a bit of a clamp down.
What kind of clamp down?
We won't be requiring your services any more, with immediate effect.
One month's wages. Very sorry.
All teenagers to the mess.
I repeat, all teenagers to the mess.
As we still have crucial work to do before our departure to Titan...
Why couldn't we have gone to Mars? It's so much nearer.
We need you all to co-operate
and prepare yourselves for what lies ahead.
In order to help you do that,
we've put together these information packs.
We'll also be having more intensive classes
-geared towards living on Titan.
-What arbour our twins?
Why are they still being kept in the SZ?
If you mean D Quadrant, it's their home.
Their prison more like. I want to see my sister, now.
Forget about happy families. Your sister is out of bounds.
SECURE DOOR BEEPS
I've instigated protocol B, finally.
You've done what?
Not now our kids have met the others, surely.
We don't have any choice.
Lena, what am I going to tell them? I'm tired of lying.
Think of the consequences for Luke and Noah
if they discover the whole truth, Stephanie.
It's a mess. The whole thing's a mess.
How are we going to get there?
Cat, was it is? Where are you going?
We have to free them, Luke.
It's not right that they're still being kept prisoner.
I'm coming with you.
TENSE MUSIC PLAYS
I've been thinking. Did you all make a conscious decision
to have twins through IVF or something?
It's a bit of an odd coincidence otherwise.
What's wrong with them?
What have they done?
