-Who are you?
-Your new head teacher.
-How would you like to get that
-little creature out of your head once and for all?
-Are you ready now?
-She's fighting it.
This programme contains some scenes some viewers might find upsetting.
Doubled, doubled, doubled again.
That's the realm of the Shadow Kin.
I'm going to go get my heart back.
What are you doing?!
THEY BREATHE HEAVILY
Are you coming?
April! God, I've been looking for you everywhere.
-Are you OK?
-Do I look OK?
-We've got to get out of here. We've got to.
-I've tried to protect you,
but you can't really hope
we're going to make it out of this alive.
Out of what alive?
I going to kill the king.
# What have I been waiting for
# Been wasting all my time
# Watching my youth slip away surely is a crime
We go on and on and on and on,
# Never knowing never knowing where we gonna
# We gonna, we gonna end up, e-e-e-nd
# We go on and on and on and on, never knowing where we're going
# Where we're going to end up in the morning. #
No, you can't possibly get this thing out of my head.
It's designed to kill me if you try.
We have our ways.
What...? Who is this "we"?
Are you this UNIT?
Far more modest than that.
When EverUpwardReach took over Coal Hill as an academy,
we installed a new Board of Governors,
one focused on keeping the school safe, keeping it clear,
-keeping it ready.
-Ready for what?
Besides, governments have a way of tripping over themselves,
slightly too concerned with rights, it's terribly inefficient.
Ah, so, you're a robot.
Goodness gracious me, no!
You didn't help with the Shadow Kin and you didn't help
-with the really-quite-hot Dragon Tattoo guy.
-We thought we'd see
how you did on your own. You've proved remarkably capable, my dear.
But, this time, we feel that your attention is somewhat diverted
from the main threat, so we've come to you directly.
And you're offering to give me my free will back?
There is a way.
It's not without risk.
And what would you expect me to do for this...privilege?
What are your thoughts on genocide?
Where is my daughter?
That boy, Ram, he said, "Tell my dad."
That means you know something so you'd better start talking.
April's sharing a heart with a murdering alien
and it looks like she's cut a hole into his world to try and kill him.
So, this IS a mushroom flashback.
Sorry, she reached into her chest and healed her spine.
I'd let that open up my world view just a little bit.
OK, I'm just going to set that aside for a minute.
Do you know how to find April?
But we know someone who might be able to help.
From what we understand he's the only one who can use the weapon.
He is, but he won't do it.
He lied to me about it even working all this time.
Irritatingly moral, that one.
He's just going to have to get over that.
They don't burn, you can't mulch them, melt them with acid,
poison them with pesticide.
Meanwhile, they eat living tissue and multiply.
That's it, that's all they do.
And you know all this since this morning?
I told you, we're efficient,
but even we won't find a solution
before there are enough of those things
to start eating full-sized humans.
The Cabinet of Souls is the closest weapon of mass destruction
-we have to hand.
-And you want me to convince Charles to use it?
Convince? No, my dear Miss Quill, there is no time for convincing.
I want you to FORCE him.
So, this is another planet, like, an actual whole other planet?
It's the planet of the Shadow Kin. They call it the Underneath.
What? How do you know all of this?
-The rest of the universe.
We can't go back.
-That's what you're here for, isn't it?
-I don't know why I'm here.
I just sort of acted without thinking.
Kind of a problem with footballers...
You know what I mean. I can't get back.
I didn't think I could get back...after Rachel.
I thought the only thing left was...
..but I did get back and you helped.
That's sweet, too.
But, I mean it, I literally can't get back.
What are you...?
I can't cut a hole back to our world.
I go us here, Ram, but I can't get us back.
She says she needs to talk to me about the flowers.
Happy. We need to get to the school.
-Right, I'll drive.
-I will drive.
-She will drive.
-I need to find Ram's dad.
April's not the only one that's missing.
-Me and Corakinus.
-What, through your heart?
And then, whatever happened back then with my mum...
..suddenly the connection was clearer, it was stronger.
He could see a path to me and I could see a path to him,
and he can find a way back to Earth again. I have to find him first.
What, and he's in there?
-Man, I've just come OUT of a cave!
-The other side.
It's safer going through than trying to cross open ground.
How do you know all of this? Are you hearing his thoughts?
I just seem to know stuff here.
And we're supposed to go through there and kill him?
If we don't, everyone we know will die.
Fine, Frodo, let's go hop in a volcano.
-Yeah, some old movie my dad likes.
We need to talk.
Mrs MacClean, this IS a surprise.
April's gone, I need you to get her back.
Yeah, priorities have changed, Charles.
-We're under attack.
-The flower petals are attacking us?
They'll bury us by tomorrow morning.
It will be quite gruesome.
But you can help us, Charles,
because it turns out that you've been lying.
Oh, my, how you've been lying...
I care very little about your opinion of my actions, Quill.
What are these? Is that something you know?
The Shadow Kin believe that they're an evolutionary mistake.
Like a peek into the universe's dark side that it never wanted,
so they were cast down here to live in our shadows and be forgotten.
They're pretty pissed off about it.
Yeah, I've noticed.
These are here to remind them that the universe will crush them
if they don't defeat it.
-All of it.
Yeah, well, most religions are.
Not all. Not mine.
Says the Sikh boy with the short hair.
Ever tried going through airport security in a turban?
My dad doesn't like that I don't practise Kesh.
-That's the long hair and the beard, right?
But you know, modern times, you got to look sharp.
I like that he does, though, honestly.
Tells me where I came from. And I've still got a Kangha
he gave me in case I ever change my mind.
Seriously! There's 30 million of us, try to learn something.
This is the Kara.
It reminds us that...
we're part of the community
and that our hands and life should do good work.
We believe the important thing in your life is to do good action.
But if you do a good action, right,
somewhere in the process, there's GOT to be God,
even if you don't have faith or believe there's some dude out there
looking after you.
Isn't doing a good thing, one human to another,
the closest we're going to get to God?
And what about all the bad things that we do,
one human to another?
I don't know. I wish I did.
But it makes it a lot easier to live in a world like that, or a universe.
Is that why you followed me?
-To do a good deed?
-I followed you because I thought
you shouldn't have to face this alone.
I don't need a knight in shining armour, Ram.
-I never have.
-There you are.
Our link just gave away too much.
He knows I'm here.
Who was that woman and why does she know so much?
SHE SCREAMS IN PAIN
SHE BREATHES HEAVILY
-It was worth it.
-What is the matter with you?
-You will not.
-Oh, stop it, stop it, I'll die before I do any real harm,
remember? Remember that?
A punishment from his people, who were destroyed,
a punishment given to only my people, who were also destroyed.
That's billions of people GONE, murdered! And YOU...
YOU! All this time to take your revenge and you said nothing!
-The choice isn't yours.
-Oh, God, if I didn't have this thing in my head!
Yeah, but you do. And you will do as I say.
You have a weapon that would kill the Shadow Kin.
And kill every Rhodian soul that I have stewardship of!
Plus, the whole mass-murder thing?
-So, it's not enough that you make me your slave...
..you're going to make me stand by, helpless, and watch
those who slaughtered my people just live and thrive?
You killed my people, too.
-In terrorist acts!
-It's possible this may not be the best time.
-No, it isn't.
And now, you're saying the threat is ongoing
and somehow four children are supposed to fight it?
-It's not like that. It's...
Today, it ends.
We need to get to the Cabinet.
We don't even know if it'll work on a plant.
It ingests living matter which would suggest the tiniest soul
lives within and that's what the weapon needs as a target, isn't it?
Don't look at me, I didn't tell her.
Venus flytraps ingest matter, they don't have souls.
Oh, you think so, do you?
MRS MACCLEAN: What's going on? Where's April?
You should stay at the school.
This is where the cracks in space-time are centred.
She'll almost certainly come out here.
Are you sure? Because if you think about those sentences,
not one of them makes any sense.
I've got a positive vision.
She's not coming.
That's where he is.
But what about your own heart, April?
You have a weapon that could kill all the Shadow Kin right now.
You'd leave this world to its destruction?
It's a small price to pay for the destruction of our enemy.
You are heartless. Like all Quill.
No, I am grieving, Prince.
You call me a terrorist, you call me a slave.
YOU call you slave.
Everything I did, everything, was for my people! For the proud Quill
who saw their life taken from them by the greedy...
I never took anyone's life!
I would have tried to be a fair leader.
And you still can be!
-You could be the greatest leader your people ever had.
-And the last.
This planet, it never ceases to stop talking about luck
and fate and destiny. Well, I believe in none of those things.
I believe life tries to kill you
from the moment you are born and the only proper response
is to fight back at every moment.
If I use the weapon on the Shadow Kin, then this world dies.
Everyone on it.
The life I'm currently living doesn't make me
-weep at the prospect.
-That wasn't our deal.
What...? What deal?
Who is this woman? How did she get inside of our house?
Don't listen to her, Charlie.
We need your help. We can see what kind of a person you are.
-Look, I'm handling this, all right?
You obviously have a good heart, you care what happens.
Charlie... Prince, we need you to save this planet.
You must be the father of the boy who led my girl astray.
All I know is that my son never had any trouble before he got involved
-with your daughter.
-Oi, you talk about my -
our - daughter like that again and I will break your neck!
God, do any of you even know your own children?
April is the most decent person I've ever met and she's also brave
and she's kind and cares about what happens to the world.
And Ram saw his girlfriend murdered in front of him,
and he still carried on living and he still cares about his future.
They're the nicest people I know.
Nobody forced anybody into anything.
Where are they now?
What was that?
I don't know. It doesn't matter.
April, you can't fight all of them.
No. Just him.
That's what I came to do.
Here we go.
What did you just say?
Don't think you understand the threat we're under.
I understand it perfectly well.
I also understand what you don't.
Whatever deal you think you made with her,
she'll betray it in a second to get what she wants.
-You already have.
-Yes, of course, we know that.
-But she got me through your door, didn't she?
She brought me to the weapon itself and, believe me...
..something will be fired today.
I swear I felt April there for a second.
-Felt her how?
-Like a tug, a pull.
April, what can I do?
Just stay out the way and try not to die.
Don't say it.
-Don't say what?
-Don't say that you love me.
What? I wasn't.
I've known you, like, a month.
You were totally about to say it.
-You were, because I was going to say
that we've only known each other for, like, a month.
Well, I wasn't.
I know what type of guy you are, Ram.
You have this heart and it's so wonderful.
You're not the usual dickhead footballer type
who shags around and who's perfect idea of a girl
is just someone who just doesn't mind that.
I shag around.
You know I think you're pretty cool.
Apart from that remark.
Can we just go from there?
Just win this fight, OK?
don't you worry.
What does it feel like?
Like electricity running through my body, but every time...
-..I definitely felt her.
-Is Ram with her?
-Whatever we're doing, can we do it quickly?
-Come this way.
Only a Rhodian can operate the Cabinet, correct?
Not even a Quill can.
How do you know all of this?
-As I said, the Governors are resourceful.
-You can't force me.
I won't be forced.
If you harm him,
I will stand by and watch you die.
Yeah, a topic on which I concur.
We're using the weapon for something else.
You see, I don't believe you will make us all pay, Charlie.
I think you're a better person than that.
You have no idea what kind of person I am.
Or what's at stake here.
If I use it, I will have nothing. The souls of my people...
..Will have saved the souls of another people.
But not destroy the RIGHT people.
Which would make you as bad as the Shadow Kin.
The Shadow Kin, who kill whole species.
If we could trick them somehow.
Get them to attack the petals.
And have the Shadow Kin on Earth? I don't think so.
Then you could use the Cabinet to kill them all
-and everybody's happy.
-But how? How could we do it?
If we'd have gone after April like I wanted to in the first place...!
-That is not the plan.
There is no time. This is not a debate.
Believe me when I say I have enough bullets in this gun to make this
afternoon go exactly how I want.
(Please be all right.)
Please be all right. Oh, God, please let her be all right.
What have you done to yourself, maggot?
Don't call her that!
Not the biggest issue here, Ram.
You can feel them, can't you?
You're looking for a soul on your world.
Your mother, is it?
You leave her out of this.
All Shadow Kin are linked.
That's what the Underneath is, it's not a planet, it's a pure shadow.
That's what we're all made of here.
Once part of it, you're part of it forever.
And now you've put our very lifeblood in your mother.
-I'll kill you if you mention her again.
I thought you were going to kill me anyway.
I think it's time for some regicide!
Tanya would have got that.
Look at it this way, use it on the petals and you save us all.
You and Matteusz can live happily ever after.
I die either way.
-If I use it, I really am lost.
I lose all hope.
I lose all of Rhodia's past and even the faintest chance for its future.
If I use it, I lose you.
But if you don't use it, you lose him, too.
It's really less of a pickle than you seem to think.
I'm lost and alone...
You are not alone.
I lost everything once before and...
Now, I'm going to lose it all over again.
If you're ever lost, I will find you.
I will be your help.
God, young love.
Get on with it.
-Is it true?
-Is what true?
If the king fights one-on-one,
-he has to win?
What if he loses?
That's the fun part.
I become king in his place.
-Kill the boy.
Hey! That's cheating!
That's how she found him.
Maybe she can find us, too.
Can you think of her?
Just get the clearest picture you can in your mind.
You can't defeat me and keep protecting him.
But I've got your power.
Which I match, obviously.
But I'm really pissed off!
Can you do more?
Remember her eighth birthday, yeah?
And that beautiful blue dress you got her.
It was her favourite, she loved it.
She loves you.
I can feel her.
-I can feel my mum.
-I know where they are.
I can get you back.
I'm going in after them.
Right, I'm going after our daughter.
Go on, then.
April, look out!
You know this is a suicide mission.
She's got a plan, don't you, April? April!
We still share a heart.
If you kill me, you will die.
You think I don't know that.
Yet here I am.
God, Dad, stuff going on, mate.
-Are you hurt?
-No, not yet.
Are you sure about this you-becoming-king thing?
I kind of am...
They won't be led by a maggot!
They are now.
It's now or never.
We will be overwhelmed in moments.
Try to still love me.
Get your dad to safety.
You can't survive this.
-None of you can.
I've come to take you back. Come on!
You have no say in this, Dad.
I know what it's like to try and take a life.
How dare you compare...?!
I meant mine.
I was blind.
I never actually meant to hurt you and your mum. I...
I could only see myself.
Because you're selfish.
Yeah, yeah, I was.
I almost certainly still am,
but you're not.
Can everybody just stop telling me what I'm like?!
You don't know me any more.
I've seen who you are today.
After eight years.
I know, April. I know, I do.
You were given the worst deal.
Someone who was supposed to protect you,
-instead threw you into danger.
-Could you just please stop talking...?
No, you found out way too early that the world wasn't safe.
But what did you do? You said, "Tough."
You said, "I won't let it break me."
Yeah, you do say that.
April, you took the terrible thing I did to you
and you threw it back at the world and you said, "Not me."
You said, "I've got my own rules I want to live by."
I mean, for God's sake, you've got all these superhero powers,
and the first being you did was...was heal your mum.
That's who you are.
Even me, the worst dad in the world can see that,
so, please, please, please,
be you right now.
Don't be me.
Even I don't want to be me any more!
All I had to do was defeat you, didn't I?
Now they've seen me beat you in battle.
That is all it takes.
All what takes?
And what do the Shadow Kin always do to a defeated king?
No! You can't kill me.
SHADOW KIN CHANT
There is a lifetime of possibilities other than death, maggot!
We still need our heart to beat, remember.
Lock him in a tomb.
This is not the end of this!
No, I get the last word.
April! Are you OK?
We gather the souls of the Rhodia.
Now is the hour of our need.
You can still do it.
You can still kill the Shadow Kin.
We would all die.
Everyone dies someday.
What the hell is going on?
The world's ending.
But you were busy, but Matteusz says
the Shadows might be able to help stop it.
Can you do any...Shadow stuff?
This weapon, never to be used.
This weapon, in which we rest ourselves,
so that it will never be used.
This weapon of such destruction that is never to be used...
Oh, hell's bells. I'd forgotten how up themselves the Rhodians were...
This weapon to end all weapons.
This is where I declare my intention,
who I wish to use the weapon against.
There's no going back from here.
There's never been any going back for us, Prince.
You are the last Rhodian and I am the last Quill.
Punish them who made us so!
More would die.
This planet, the souls, every Rhodian who ever lived.
By leaving the Shadow Kin alive,
you guarantee that billions more
will die on countless worlds.
Would you really sacrifice your
entire people just for the love of a few?
I don't doubt you love him.
I was in love once, I know what it looks like.
But you are a prince, and you said it yourself,
you have duties beyond what is personal.
Don't listen to her, Charlie.
You have to do it now!
All war is sacrifice,
but you can end the one they wage on the universe forever,
and to what better purpose can a life and a death be put?
Be a hero.
-They're in the corridor. We're trapped!
-Oh, what do we do?
You never told me there were going to be more monsters.
-You didn't want to know, Dad!
-I always want to know!
If the world is going to end, in shadows or in petals,
-I want to know, Son!
-End in shadows?
April, the Shadow Kin, they enter worlds and kill in shadows.
That's what Matteusz's text meant!
And you're their king...probably!
Forgive me, but I would rather be alive than glorious.
Now, I could take that gun off you...
Yes, but in time, do you think?
Even with a gun, you should never turn your back on an angry Pole.
-I don't like guns.
-Do it. Do it now.
Well, what are you waiting for?
You know what your king wants.
I declare unto you my intention.
I declare the enemy that endangers all of Rhodia.
I give you my intent.
I've sent them into shadow.
How do you have an army?
What are you going to do with an army?!
-Step away from me, Quill.
You can still kill them all!
-Kill the Shadow Kin!
-No, that would make him a monster.
When your entire people have been killed before your very eyes,
then you can talk to me about monsters!
You will use that on the Shadow Kin.
Maybe not today, but trust me, you will.
-She'll get over it.
-You pulled a gun on me!
You'll get over it.
Wait! Destroy the path here as you go.
Dude, you are totally a queen.
No, she's an alien now!
Dad, at least pay attention.
I can feel them,
all of them.
I can hear them inside my head.
And everyone's looking at me.
You'd be looking at you, too.
I think I need saving.
It's only fair... after you save the whole planet.
What do you need?
I am free of the anchor.
The bond is broken.
We still share the same heart,
but he's cut the new connection.
The strong one that...
No, your legs!
I think we've got a lot to talk about.
I think we do, too.
Well, I'm glad my mum didn't come.
Kochany, what would you have done?
Would you believe me if I said I didn't know?
-I think I'm lost, Matteusz.
-Then I will find you.
You do realise that's not my car?
-I am not your enemy.
Yeah, an enemy is decided by her actions, not by her intentions.
-Basic rule of warfare.
-Did you really think the Governors
hadn't taken all these variables into account?
-A solid 66% chance the girl would stop the petals.
-77% chance you would try to use the Cabinet for your own ends.
-What are you trying...?
-I argued that it was more like 90,
but there are still men who won't listen to a woman
-who's smarter than they are.
-So, you expected all this?
And in fact, our thinking was
that the petals probably had only one aggregate soul
between them. Charlie would have only had to use one soul
-from the Cabinet to eliminate them all.
And you were planning on telling me all this, when?
In the end, it was a far closer-run thing than we would have liked,
but now we know quite a lot more
about young Charlie and about the Cabinet
than we did before. And for that, we're grateful.
Our deal still stands.
You helped us, we will help you.
Come and see me on Monday about getting that thing out of your head.
Still have to do parents' evening, though.
So, are you still queen?
They call you king, even if you're a woman.
All the extra powers have gone now.
I need to go.
I need to remind them I'm still their daughter.
Yeah, same deal with my dad.
Charlie will be pissed you outrank him now.
I need you to go now.
I need you to just do that until we contact you.
-That might be never, though.
But you gave up having that choice.
Yeah, I did.
I won't change my number.
I'll keep it.
Forever, if that's what it takes.
You don't have to worry about me.
-I'm strong now.
-Yeah, I can see that.
You didn't get that from me, did you?
It'll take a while before I get full strength back.
Still want to try?
It was a violent thing you did, April.
I had accepted my life.
-It was full and happy and in no way less.
I know. I know that, too.
All it takes is one step,
then we can decide on the next one after that.
You've all got an hour detention and I've got things to do.
Don't explain my own feelings to me!
I love you.
-I don't trust how fast you've fallen.
-I'm also afraid of you.
Battling through the Shadow Kin realm, April knows that there is no going back: she has to defeat Corakinus.
On earth, the invasion of the petals is rapidly snowballing. Confronted with the threat of the planet's extinction, new headmistress Dorothea attempts to force Charlie into making a transformational decision. But Miss Quill has other ideas for him.
As Charlie, Matteusz and Tanya try to stop the petals from annihilating the human race, April must fight the terrifying force of Corakinus, lightyears away from home.
