Maybe we should take Mungo back to the others.
We can't take him back like that.
They might want to wash him.
I'm not sure how they do it or what they do, but...you know.
Can't fix much of it, but we can get rid of the blood -
some of it, at least.
How can he kick a kid in the face?
You can if you think he's a monster.
CHILDREN SHOUTING IN DISTANCE
They're stronger, faster, warriors who've survived hundreds
of thousands of years.
We call them subhuman, but,
biologically, they're better than us.
Deep down we know that, that's why we fear them.
-We don't have to be afraid anymore.
-Cut to the chase, Mr West.
Slade assured me this'd be worth my while.
One simple dose creates instant cellular mutation.
The hair loss begins almost immediately.
Within hours, the hair's completely gone,
along with their speed and strength,
potentially even their extended life span.
Are you telling me these creatures become human?
Subhuman. Ready to be assimilated.
But, Mr West, not so long ago you were arguing for Hairy rights.
My intent remains the same, it's just the method that's changed.
Jared Slade and I share a vision, Minister,
a way to heal the wounds between the species.
The Inclusion Initiative will give us a real opportunity for humans and
Hairys to live peacefully, side-by-side.
In return, your government backs their entire welfare programme.
Where I'm from, that's called being screwed twice.
With respect, Minister, that shows a lack of vision.
The initiative means Hairys are no longer a threat to humans.
The genetic testing of the general public comes to an end.
Hairys can live freely and safely in an open, assimilated society.
And the face of that initiative -
a respected black fella who wants nothing more than unity.
Where I'm from, that's called a win-win.
Well, that's quite a sales pitch.
But how long until this Project Madesterium can be tested on live subjects?
It's already begun.
They'll start knocking on doors soon.
And you'll tell them we're family.
Well, she's not going to pass for a human.
Let 'em come. I'll take care of them.
There's fruit in there, on the table.
It's true about the door-knocking.
They've been through before, they searched the place.
-How many of them?
-Usually two, fully armed.
-How often do they come?
-Every three, four days,
unless something else triggers their interest before that.
-Like a sighting?
-No, like the fact that I can't swing another day off.
My mate's already on his way to pick me up.
And you think I'm stupid enough to let you leave?
Stupid is not the word I would use to describe you.
The city is on lockdown, everyone is jumpy, I need to act normal.
I can buy more food on my way home.
Why would you do that?
I want to help you.
No-one wants to help us.
Did hydrotherapy prove to be the promised cure-all?
Yes, I feel almost human.
I thought you had an early start.
I just wanted to make sure you were all right before I left.
You needn't even move off the couch today.
-I recognise that look.
-The hospital called, they need me back.
I thought I might go and do half a day.
My darling, I don't want to keep going on about it.
But you think I should rest.
Both of you should. Just a little longer, doctor's orders.
Well, I'm the doctor. Shouldn't I be the judge of that?
Charlotte, we nearly lost the baby, you tell me if it's worth the risk.
And if I start climbing the walls?
Just make sure you find a safe way down.
I better go.
You call me if you need anything.
You at the network all day?
Oh, yeah. Chained to my desk.
Tell me about their lovely Marianne Prith.
She's in, 100%.
No eyebrows raised about disposal of extracted waste products?
All be to delivered to Slade Industries for destruction,
ensuring no toxic waste dumps.
A responsibility that Slade Industries takes very seriously.
Recycling will save mankind,
just not quite in the way the greenies intended.
I assured her the test subject would be ready for tonight's announcement.
He will be, mentally and physically.
We should give him a new name,
or maybe ask him to choose one, something...
You could just assign him a number.
Not exactly relatable.
He needs a name in English. It'll make people feel safer if they know
the Hairys aren't allowed to use their own language again,
once they've been through the process.
They called this one Trevor on arrival.
I can see you're born to this.
They have to act as human, in all ways.
Savour the moment, Waruu. We're about to change the world.
Oh, would you mind, Waruu?
Not at all.
There. Facial recognition, 100%.
We need him found, now.
I'll find him.
And do it quietly.
Don't draw the CA's or the public's attention to what he is.
Latani was with us. We were busted out.
-She's still alive?
He was so brave, Araluen.
A real warrior.
TV: Diaz reporting from the site of a raid by sub-humans,
in which several courageous Containment Authority officers
lost their lives.
This was clearly a planned attack, rather than an opportunistic run.
Pressure is now...
Meant to crack down on these violent creatures,
who continue to prey on innocent humans...
PERSON CRIES OUT
This shows the streets aren't safe for any of you.
Please, stay hidden.
We can't trust anyone anymore.
Ordinary people did this.
And I'm sorry I let you down at the Zone, but I am here for you all...
to keep you safe, however I can...
..and to change things...
..up there in the city...
..to make this city a better place for Hairys to live safe,
just like everyone else.
They killed Mungo. We should kill them!
We don't get to decide who lives or dies, Harry.
But if we want to live side-by-side, everyone accepting everyone else,
letting each other be, well, then we have to find another way.
I'm not sure what that looks like.
You destroyed us!
I am so sorry...for your little girl.
Let her be, now, Koen.
Is it alive?
Very much so.
Let's find out what else Cleverman blood can do.
And what we can do to it.
Same ring as the car keys.
They'll come in if I don't go out there.
Look, I promise you guys, I'll come back.
-And how many CA will you bring with you?
-I'm telling the truth.
I'll come back alone.
-Tick-tock, tick-tock, buddy!
-Yeah, I know.
-What happened to your head?
-Don't ask. Let's get in the car.
We're running late.
TANNOY: ..please report to ICU.
Doctor Burke, Doctor Burke, report to ICU.
I wasn't expecting you back so soon.
Oh, I couldn't let you run outpatients all on your own.
Are you sure you're OK?
How many years have you been telling me what I should do?
12? Wait, no, 14 years.
-Oh, my God, you make me sound so old.
-Well, you are old.
Oh, but you'll never be as old as me.
I thought your OB ordered bed rest until next week.
Are you conspiring with my husband, Deepak?
Can I get the patients list for today?
Well, I wouldn't blame him for treating you like glass.
You had a big scare.
I'm not doing manual labour in the fields.
It's just a few shifts. It's good for me. Thanks.
-Doctors make terrible patients.
-Only when we feel we have no control.
So who's the bigger control freak, then? You or Jared?
Oh, my God, that man is a league of his own.
I swear he'd lock me up, if he could, till the baby was born.
Oh, I see, so you're just here to be a rebel.
Exactly. It's got nothing to do with control.
Hey, I need a full workup -
hormones, haemoglobin, iron, glucose, toxoplasmosis.
Got it. We'll run the gamut.
The IDs are missing. What's the patient's name?
It's for me, actually.
I just want to make sure everything's running on track.
We'll make it a priority.
And you can keep your name off the records.
No-one else need know.
I appreciate it.
Hood off, please.
Mandatory DNA test, ma'am.
Well, that was disappointing.
You're clear. Enjoy the rest of your day.
I could've told you that.
-You get off on this, don't you?
-I will when we catch some subbies.
We're taking civilians' blood.
It's just a prick.
-We were tested.
-We were tested as part of our jobs.
These people are just trying to go about their regular lives.
No such thing anymore, mate.
So you're fine about the government holding on to our DNA and all of its information?
If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about.
You'll be presented as the sole public face of the initiative.
I don't think the press need to know
the depths of Slade's personal involvement.
-Respectfully, I disagree.
Say what you want about the man, but Jared Slade is a powerful brand.
-Media is not exactly highly regarded.
-The public is scared.
They'll want to be sure the initiative works.
They know Slade is a man who doesn't lose.
Putting his face front and centre can only help us.
Mmm, you make a valid point.
-Er, Lucia, meet Warru West.
Lucia will be working under you on the Inclusion Initiative.
Pleasure. It's a visionary concept, Mr West. Can't wait to get started.
I trust this suits?
COMPUTER: Good morning, Mr West.
Welcome to the Department of Human Safety.
We didn't have a time to confer over your exact title.
Executive Director is good.
Well, feel free to put your personal stamp on the place.
There's just one formality.
It's tedious and unnecessary, I know,
but everybody has to have their DNA tested,
whatever their skin colour.
It's another bureaucratic hoop to jump through.
HR likes to show they're doing their bit.
It won't take a second.
I'm not good with needles.
You worried you might faint?
Not a good look as my first day as Executive Director.
No, we can't have that.
Lucia can collect it when you're done.
-Ah, Christ, mate, are you OK?
-Is it broken?
Mate, you came out of nowhere.
Hang on, hang on, just come over here.
Tilt your head back, mate, tilt your head back.
Ah! Yeah, yeah. What happened?
Oh, mate, you came out of nowhere!
Not a bad speech back there.
I don't want to forgive anyone.
Why should Araluen?
I just want to...
Blast every one of them?
Yeah, I do.
Well, not a bad start. Got to say, that blast hurt like hell.
I'm sorry, Auntie.
I'm here, aren't I? All in one piece.
You did what needed to be done.
They're going to pay...
for Mungo, for Blair, and for all the Hairys.
I hear you, but you can't just hurl that thing around,
knocking out whoever happens to be nearby.
Come with me.
Erythrocytes are round and flat, no sign of malformation.
Haemoglobin and platelet levels average.
In other words, the Cleverman's blood is completely normal.
On the contrary, normal cells can be destroyed.
This isn't possible.
Neither is a man who can't be killed,
but such is the world we live in.
The cancer's gone.
Come on, show me the blast.
Good, and again.
You'll be unstoppable with that power.
Now, just control your anger.
Someone kicks a kid to death in front of me,
I'm going to get emotional.
Or maybe they murder my best friend.
Yeah, I'm going to get angry.
Lost count of how many of my people I've seen killed.
They don't expect you to be chained to your desk
on your first day, you know.
Give me a hand here.
Look, the success of the initiative is going to depend on making it as
attractive as possible to the Hairys,
which means, among other things,
counteracting any propaganda there may be from Hairy sympathisers.
-Is there any way for this office to access the government's
human ID data bank?
Keep an eye on the activity of suspected sympathisers.
You now have access to everything
the government knows about its citizenry.
They might not let you out of here now.
Yeah, taking your advice, getting some stuff delivered.
-Just trying to get my head around this database.
If someone's, say, dead or missing, I mean, how is that listed?
Or do your records get deleted when you die?
Dead will come up as deceased, no-one's records get deleted.
They'll be there for eternity.
-No escaping your misspent youth, Mr West.
I don't think I have much more left in me, Harry.
How about we stop when you're too tired to talk?
What are you doing here?!
Get your hands off, put me...!
-Harry, let her go!
-What did you see?
-Huh?! TELL ME!
-Let her go!
She's seen too much.
What are you saying, huh? That we should kill her?
Or do you want to rip off another finger?
I know he's a Hairy, but what about you?
Pathology report you ordered.
Hairy DNA? Something you're not telling me, Charlotte?
No, the lab got the samples contaminated. Have to do it again.
The DNA devices have just started coming in to the lab for servicing.
Well, no wonder there's cross-contamination.
Either that, or you've invested in a damn good razor.
VOICEMAIL: Hi, there. You've reached Charlotte Cleary.
-Please leave a message.
GPS, track phone location.
Smallpox, tuberculosis, malaria -
his blood destroyed them all.
We'll have to try something more potent.
If that doesn't work, I've got one more trick up my sleeve.
Make a start on it. I'll be right back.
Feels good. I might stay the whole afternoon, actually.
-Feel like I've got loads of energy...
Jared! What are you doing here?
I'm here to ask you exactly that question.
We agreed you'd stay at home.
Well, I changed my mind.
It's not only up to you.
Shouldn't the welfare of our child be a decision for both of us?
I'm in the safest place possible.
Besides, it's not like I don't know what I'm doing.
Women have been having babies for thousands of years.
The world's changed, it's about to change again.
What are you talking about?
I'm doing everything I can to get our child the best life.
She'll live like no-one has before.
She? Oh, our child's a girl now, is it?
I think you should come home now.
I'll be home once my shift is finished, we can discuss it then.
Charlotte, you're coming with me.
I will not be spoken to like that.
And I won't have the safety of our child jeopardised.
Gather your things.
I don't work for you, Jared. You can't order me to do anything.
I think you better leave.
Ebola was no match for the subject's blood.
It's destroying every disease known to man.
Well, we'll have to try something not known to man.
SIRENS WAIL IN DISTANCE
We should just go before he gets home.
We're not going anywhere until it's fully dark.
Shit, he's here.
Jesus, I come in peace!
I brought food, like I said I would.
It's all good.
Any effect on the blood?
Cells unaffected as yet.
Ten seconds in.
Virus is being destroyed.
Add another drop before the virus is completely annihilated.
Another drop, Everick, now.
Add another drop.
That's impossible. You're suited.
SOUND OF AIR BEING RELEASED
She has to come with us.
We don't know anything about her.
What's your name?
I'm Koen West.
I'm not going to hurt you.
Where do you want to take me?
-You don't ask the questions.
Are you seeing this?
-Where you going?
-Just wait here.
Can you hurry up with that?
I need to chain you back up before I go to sleep.
Just leave the jacket.
What are you playing at?
Was your husband at the Zone, too?
Why did you give me this?
You might need it.
You going to go to the bathroom before I tie you back up?
What exactly do you think I'm going to do?
Turn you into the CA?
I could've done both of those things anytime today.
-Just don't push it.
I'm going to go to bathroom.
Under the leadership of my predecessor,
this ministry's policy in dealing with Hairy threat
was one of containment and removal.
When I took office, the high-level threat of
domestic terrorism led to a necessary restriction of
the civil liberties that we as a nation hold so dear.
Tonight, that policy comes to an end.
With the assistance of Slade Industries,
a ground-breaking medical procedure has been
developed to minimise the physical threat of the Hairy people.
Thank you, Minister.
Scientific, ethical trials of
this procedure have a proven 100% success rate.
Here you see a Hairy male before treatment.
I believe the results speak for themselves.
What would you like your new name to be?
They call me Trevor.
SHE BREATHES SHALLOWLY
-They call me Trevor.
I am honoured to announce the
Inclusion Initiative -
a nationwide welfare, education and integration programme...
..developed by indigenous community leader Waruu West.
Once neutralised, the Hairy people will have the opportunity to attain
the same standard of living as everyone else,
enjoy the same rights, privileges, responsibilities,
observe the same customs...
..and join in the beliefs,
hopes and loyalties that are the very thing that make us
human and set us apart from the animals.
This is the Hairy people's chance to throw off the shackles of their
primitive, aggressive existence.
We look forward to welcoming all the Hairy peoples who volunteer for
the Inclusion Initiative into a new way of life.
Together we can bury the past
and move forward to an enlightened society.
We shall all be the richer for this assimilation.
Close your mouth, boy.
You look like you've seen a ghost.
Waruu relishes his new responsibilities working for Slade and the government - he and Slade force Boondee to become the first public victim of 'the process'. And Slade, unbeknownst to Waruu, is perfecting work on a substance that could destroy Koen.
Meanwhile Jarrod's wife Charlotte still suspects there is something sinister and wrong about her pregnancy. Araluen, having escaped from captivity and killed Matthews, her tormentor and the former minister for Human Safety, searches desperately for her family.
