Cyberwoman

Original Airdate: 5 Nov, 2006

[Hub]

(Ianto comes down in the lift to a scene of chaos. The team are playing basketball, and the pterodactyl is trying to join in.)
OWEN: Okay. Come on, Gwen. Gwen, this is for you, baby. Come on.
(Jack gets the ball.)
OWEN: Just get it off him. Take it out of his hands. Oi.
(Gwen bounces it out of Jack's hands and throws it back to Owen, who is on the catwalk directly above the basket.)
OWEN: Oh, come to Daddy. Yes! First round's on you, boss. Girls, get your handbags.
JACK: Of course, that was an illegal move.
TOSH: Totally illegal.
OWEN: Yeah. Keep telling yourself that, yeah? Losers. Bye.
(Jack throws the basketball to Ianto and the four leave him alone in the Hub.)

[Roald Dahl Plass]

TOSH: He's never seen a live rugby match.
JACK: I have other things to do with my time.
GWEN: Rhys knows a bloke whose cousin works at the Millennium Stadium. We should all go to the next home international.

[Hub]

(Ianto is ordering dinner from Jubilee Pizza.)
IANTO: Can you make it two Pepperoni Feasts tonight. And a tub of coleslaw. My boss says I'm not eating enough vegetables. Yeah, usual time. See you then.
(An eldery Japanese man enters Torchwood.)
IANTO: Good to see you again, sir. Are they looking after you at the hotel? Kon'nichi wa, Tanizaki-san.
TANIZAKI: Kon'nichi wa.
(Ianto takes the doctor's case and leads the way.)

[Store room]

(Down in the depths of Torchwood, Ianto unlocks and unbolts a heavy door.)
IANTO: I did all I could. I really did.
(The door opens to reveal a life support mechanism maintaining a metal-clad body in a restraining frame. Ianto brings to an upright position. It is half dark-skinned woman, half Cyberman.)
TANIZAKI: My God. It's not possible. One of them survived.
(Ianto kisses the woman.)
IANTO: This is Lisa.
TANIZAKI: Is she awake?
IANTO: It's just a reaction to the medication.
TANIZAKI: She's the only one left across the whole world. Thank you. Thank you so much for bringing me here. I never thought to get my chance to study, to work with anything like this.
IANTO: Anyone.
TANIZAKI: Tell me, what happened?
IANTO: She worked for Torchwood London. It was the end of the Canary Wharf battle. The Cybermen needed soldiers fast. They started upgrading whole bodies instead of transplanting brains, using Earth technology. Lisa was halfway through the process when the machinery shut down.
TANIZAKI: You found her?
(Ianto remembers dragging the screaming woman along a corridor.)
IANTO [memory]: Help! Help me, please. Somebody!
IANTO: I pulled her out.
TANIZAKI: Do you know the percentages?
IANTO: The what?
TANIZAKI: Some elements have been augmented. Some are still human. Sensory capacity, for instance. Her breathing and hearing appears completely cybernetic. And yet there's also bare flesh. Amazing. Perhaps fifty five percent augmentation with forty five percent awaiting completion. Do you think? Or perhaps, maybe sixty forty. It's fascinating.
IANTO: Can you make her human again?
TANIZAKI: You took parts from a Cyber conversion unit and modified them into a life support for her. How did you know what to do?
LISA: I told him.
IANTO: I thought you were resting. You should be resting. How's the pain? Are the new doses working?
LISA: A little. Oh! Is this him?
IANTO: I promised, didn't I?
LISA: And you always keep your promises.
TANIZAKI: I would like to ask her some questions. My name is Doctor Tanizaki. I specialise in Cybernetics. Your friend, Mister Jones, asked me
LISA: My boyfriend.
TANIZAKI: Yes. He asked me to come.
LISA: We agreed. Together.
TANIZAKI: A few simple questions. What is your name?
LISA: Lisa Hallett.
TANIZAKI: How old are you?
LISA: Twenty six.
TANIZAKI: What is the last thing you remember before coming here?
(The same thing as Ianto.)
IANTO [memory]: Somebody! Anybody!
LISA: Pain. I remember my body burning with pain.
TANIZAKI: You said there was somewhere I could work upstairs?

[Autopsy room]

(Lisa is laid out on the autopsy table.)
TANIZAKI: This first stage should enable her to breathe without the respirator. Once her body functions without support, I can judge what work is needed.
IANTO: What if she's not ready to breathe on her own?
TANIZAKI: You must be prepared for her not to survive. Sometimes, in order to save what we love, we have to risk losing it.
(The heart monitor flatlines.)
IANTO: She's not strong enough.
TANIZAKI: Let me do my work.

[Bar]

JACK: And she said, do you know how difficult it is to find a man in this city? He had a nice flat, all his own hair, so frankly, a couple of tusks I can live with.
(Tosh's pager beeps.)
TOSH: UFO sighting over Cardigan Bay. Seven calls to the emergency services.
OWEN: Oh. Can we at least finish our drinks, please?
JACK: Sure. Take ten seconds.

[Autopsy room]

(Lisa gasps for air.)
IANTO: If she dies because of you
LISA: Ianto?
IANTO: Yes, I'm here. She's breathing. It worked.
LISA: Why aren't I connected?
IANTO: You're alive. He kept you alive.
LISA: Thank you.
TANIZAKI: This is only the start.
(A monitor beeps. Ianto calls up the image of the four walking across the Plass towards Torchwood.)
IANTO: We've got to move. Quickly!
LISA: I'll walk.
IANTO: You've only just woken up. You can't.
LISA: I want to walk. Please.
IANTO: Help her downstairs. I'll clear up here.
LISA: I'm alive!

[Roald Dahl Plass]

TOSH: All I'm saying is, once in a while I'd like to drive.
OWEN: And all I'm saying is no.
TOSH: Why not?
OWEN: Look, I've shared cars with women before. I know what'll happen. There'll be an emergency. We're all raring to go. I jump in, what do I find? Seat's in the wrong position, the rear view mirror's out of line and the steering wheel's in my crotch. Time it takes to sort it all out, aliens'll have taken Newport.
(Doctor Tanizaki helps Lisa down the stairs to the basement.)

[Tourist Information Centre]

GWEN: What about a rota? Different people drive on different days.
JACK: We're a secret organisation hunting alien technology from an underground base, and you want a rota for who drives.
GWEN: Just trying to help.

[Store room]

IANTO: As soon as they're gone, I'll be down.

[Hub]

JACK: Tosh, call up the radar within a fifty mile radius of the Bay for the last six hours. Gwen, check with that man. Neil, I think his name was, voice like Sean Connery, at Jodrell Bank. See if they picked up any chatter around the time of the sightings. Owen, access the airspace provision over Cardigan Bay. Also any RAF flight plans. See if it's just a case of mistaken identity.

[Store room]

(Doctor Tanizaki helps Lisa to her conversion unit.)
TANIZAKI: Take it slowly. You are still very weak. This way.
(When she gets there, she picks him up by the throat and half-throttles him.)

[Hub]

GWEN: Is that Neil? It's Gwen Cooper from Torchwood. I know, we're always after something, aren't we?
JACK: Ianto. Would you work some coffee magic?

[Store room]

(Lisa puts Doctor Tanazaki into the conversion unit.)
TANAZAKI: Lisa, Let me go.
LISA: I can help you. The human race is weak. I can make you strong.
(Electricity surges through the unit. Tanazaki screams as flailing blades descend to do their work.)

[Hub]

(The lights flicker.)
GWEN: What's happening?
TOSH: Internal power drain.
(Computers reboot.)
GWEN: What's causing it?
JACK: Something big to drain that amount of power. Tosh, run a system diagnostic.
IANTO: Actually, we've been having generator problems all evening. I was down there checking earlier. Couple of bits of cabling have come loose. I thought I'd fixed it. Let me have another look.
JACK: Fine. Go check.
GWEN: Want some help?
IANTO: It's fine.

[Store room]

(Klaxons are blaring.)
IANTO: You've got to shut down the power.
(He turns the unit off, and sees Tanizaki on the floor, covered in blood, and with one metal eye socket.)
IANTO: Oh, God. Oh, my God. What happened?
LISA: His upgrade failed.
IANTO: Was it an accident? Tell me you didn't do this.
LISA: I wanted to repay him for helping me by removing the weaknesses of his humanity.
IANTO: What have you done? You've killed an innocent man.
LISA: It's all right.
IANTO: It's not all right! They're gonna come looking for me in a minute. If they see the body, if they find out what we've been doing
LISA: I can deal with them.
IANTO: Don't you go near them. You didn't mean to do this. Something's happened to your mind. Just, er, some kind of side effect from this whole process. It's post-traumatic. You didn't mean to. You've ruined everything now! How hard have we had to work to keep you alive? And now you do this. I need you to stay in here. Rest. Don't come out unless I tell you. This can't happen again, Lisa. If you harm anyone else, I'll
LISA: Yes? What will you do?
IANTO: Okay, the body. I've got to deal with the body. I can do this. (he cries) This is my fault. I'm responsible for this. I'll hide the body. Everything's gonna be okay.
(Ianto drags the corpse out and locks Lisa in. She reactivates the conversion unit.)

[Hub]

(Tosh has got amateur footage of the UFO on her screen.)
GWEN: That's a UFO?
OWEN: Only just.
JACK: Arkan leisure crawler, first generation. Collectors' item. Don't see many of those around these days. Tosh, send a polite message saying great to see them, but could they please get the hell out of our atmosphere, they're spooking the locals.
TOSH: Done.
GWEN: Shouldn't we be apprehending it? Investigating it?
JACK: Oh, please. You interrogate an Arkan, you'll be in there for a month. And that's just the first question. They are so boring. Besides, they're mostly made of liquid. The cells would be a mess.
(Another power drop.)
OWEN: There it goes again.
JACK: Ianto, we've got another dose of darkness. You found anything? Ianto, I need to hear those beautiful Welsh vowels.
(Lisa is in the conversion unit, and she is happy.)
TOSH: Power's draining to the storeroom at the bottom of the building. Looking for human heat signals. We've got
OWEN: Two signals?
TOSH: So assuming one's Ianto, who's the other?
JACK: I'm thinking we're under attack. Security's been breached. We assume battle protocols.
TOSH: That's impossible. Nobody can get in without triggering seven separate alarms.
JACK: Yeah? Well, looks like our system needs to be upgraded.
(He hands out weapons.)
OWEN: I'll head down and look for Ianto.
GWEN: I'll come with you.
OWEN: You all right with that?
JACK: Keep your comms open at all times. Any doubt, shoot first. Priority is to find Ianto.

[Basement]

(Ianto lies the corpse down.)
IANTO: I'm sorry.
(Meanwhile -)
GWEN: What's down here?
WOEN: Normally? Nothing.
JACK [OC]: Progress report.

[Hub]

OWEN [OC]: Signs of activity at the eastern end of the main corridor.
JACK: We're losing your comms signals.

[Basement]

GWEN: We're going in to have a look.

[Hub]

TOSH: Whatever that power source is, it's interfering with the comms.
JACK: Gwen, Owen, can you hear me? Damn. Can we get them back?
TOSH: Trying other channels. There's something else you need to see. I've gone back through our internal CCTV footage for the last couple of hours. Someone's tried to remove the images from our system.
JACK: See, now I'm starting to get a little peeved. These people come into my house, start using my things
TOSH: I've dug into the system memory.
(They see the time Doctor Tanizaki arrived.)
JACK: What the hell's going on here?

[Basement]

OWEN: Jack? Tosh?

[Hub]

JACK: Gwen, Owen, can you hear me?

[Basement]

GWEN: No comms.
OWEN: We're on our own, then.
(They reach the door to the store room. Bright light is flickering inside.)
OWEN: What the hell is going on?
GWEN: What's the matter?
OWEN: I can't see well enough, but there's something in there. Some kind of operating table. Get the bolts.
GWEN: Okay?
OWEN: Yeah. Okay, one, two
(He kicks the door open.)

[Store room]

(The conversion unit is active but empty.)
OWEN: No. No, no, no, no.
GWEN: What the hell is it?
OWEN: It's wrong. It's beyond wrong. It shouldn't be here. Turn the thing off. Turn it off!

[Hub]

TOSH: Internal levels are being restored.
JACK: Gwen, Owen, can you hear me?

[Store room]

OWEN: These things brought down Torchwood One. But they were all destroyed. Why is there one in our bloody basement!
GWEN: Just tell me what it does.
OWEN: It's the remnants of a conversion unit. This machinery turns humans into Cybermen.

[Hub]

JACK: If I don't hear something within thirty seconds

[Store room]

JACK[OC]: I'm coming down there.
GWEN: Jack, it's Gwen. The comms dropped out. We're back online now.
JACK [OC]: Any sign of Ianto?
OWEN: No. But we have found parts of a Cyber conversion unit.

[Hub]

OWEN [OC]: Fully powered up and working.
JACK: This is no time to be kidding around, Owen.

[Store room]

OWEN: I'm deadly serious. I don't know why it's here, or how it got here, but that's what's draining our power. Jack, you there?

[Hub]

JACK: I want you two back up here immediately.

[Store room]

OWEN: We still haven't found
(Crash! Lisa is behind them.)
GWEN: Jack, code zero incursion. Repeat.

[Hub]

GWEN [OC]: Code zero incursion. We're under attack.
JACK: If you don't hear from me within fifteen minutes, activate total shutdown procedures and get yourself to safety.
TOSH: But I can't just leave you all here.
JACK: If there's a Cyberman in this building, we need a last line of defence. Just make sure it never gets to the outside world.

[Store room]

GWEN: Whatever you, whoever you are, I don't mean you any harm. But come any closer, I'll shoot.
(Lisa knocks the gun out of Gwen's hand and grabs her by the throat.)
GWEN: Let me go.
LISA: Do not struggle. You will be like me.
Lisa forces Gwen into the conversion unit and turns it on.)
JACK: Throw down any weapons, put your hands up and turn and face me.
(Lisa does.)
JACK: You're a woman.
GWEN: Owen! Jack!
(Ianto stops Jack from shooting Lisa.)
IANTO: She doesn't know what she's doing.
JACK: You are fighting the wrong guy.
GWEN: Get me out of here, someone, please! Switch it off!
IANTO: I'm trying. She's changed all the circuits. Shut off the power everywhere!
JACK: Toshiko, cut all power in the base.

[Hub]

TOSH: I do that, the base goes into lockdown. We'll be trapped!

[Store room]

JACK: Just do it!
GWEN: Switch it off!
(Tosh throws the master breaker just in time. All the electronically controlled doors on the base lock.)
OWEN: Gwen?
GWEN: I'm fine. I'm fine, I'm fine. Sort of. Jack, please get me out of here.
JACK: It's all right.
GWEN: Where is she? Where did she go? Please tell me you got her.
JACK: Stand guard by the door.
IANTO: I'm sorry. I'm really sorry.
GWEN: What for?
JACK: Let's just get out of here.
(He releases Gwen from the unit.)

[Basement]

JACK: Clear?
IANTO: Clear.
(Lisa appears at the end of the corridor.)
GWEN: Oh my God, there she is. What is she?
JACK: Some form of Cyberman. They're us, upgraded. Humans with emotions removed, created on a parallel world and supposedly destroyed on this one.
GWEN: What are we gonna do?
JACK: I don't know.
IANTO: She's gone.
(Jack points his weapon at Ianto.)
JACK: Get us back to the Hub.
GWEN: Jack, what are you doing?
JACK: Resisting the urge to shoot.

[Hub]

JACK: Tosh, get everything from the weapons room, fast as you can.
TOSH: It's locked down. There's no manual override.
JACK: Just open the store. On your knees. Hands above your head.
(Ianto obeys.)
GWEN: Jack, for God's sake. What are you doing?
JACK: Tosh, I gave you an order. Gwen, help her. Did you know that thing was down there?
IANTO: I put her there.
JACK: You hid a Cyberman within Torchwood, and you didn't tell us? What else are you keeping from us?
IANTO: Like you care. I clear up your shit. No questions asked and that's the way you like it. When did you last ask me anything about my life? Her name's Lisa. She's my girlfriend.
GWEN: Why didn't you tell us? We could have helped you.
IANTO: Torchwood exists to destroy alien threats. Why would I tell you about her?
OWEN: A little loyalty, perhaps?
IANTO: My loyalty's to her. She worked for Torchwood. She was caught up in battle. I owe it to Lisa, we owe it to her, to find a cure.
JACK: Ianto, you have to believe me, there is no cure. There never will be. Those who are converted stay that way. Your girlfriend will not be the exception.
IANTO: You can't know that for sure.
JACK: Look, you need to know what's happening here. Because this is where these things start. Small decisions that become mass slaughter. These creatures regain a foothold by exploiting human weakness. Then they take a base, rebuild their forces, and before you know it, the Cyber race is spreading out across the universe, erasing worlds, assimilating populations, all because of the tiny beginnings here. We need to stop her together.
IANTO: You're not listening to me. The conversion was never completed.
JACK: She already tried to kill Gwen. You think she's gonna stop there? There is no turning back for her now.
IANTO: I'm not giving up on her. I love her. Can you understand that, Jack? Haven't you ever loved anyone?
JACK: You need to figure out whose side you're on here, because if you don't know, you're not going to make it out of this alive.
OWEN: There's no way this weapons store's gonna open.
TOSH: It's going to take six hours for the power to come back online.
IANTO: Let me talk to her. I can still save her, save all of us. She's not a monster.
(Lis enters.)
GWEN: Ianto.
IANTO: Lisa. It's me.
GWEN: You can't just let him go
JACK: Shush.
LISA: The army will be rebuilt from here. This building is suitable.
JACK: Who are you?
LISA: Human point two.
IANTO: No. Lisa.
JACK: So how come you look like human point one?
LISA: I do not understand.
JACK: Look at yourself. Go ahead.
IANTO: Remember, Lisa. Remember who you are.
(She sees her reflection in a monitor screen.)
LISA: The upgrade is incomplete.
IANTO: You're still human.
LISA: I am disgusting. I have. I am wrong.
IANTO: We can help you.
LISA: I must start again. Upgrade properly.
IANTO: For God's sake, have you heard yourself? Lisa, please. I brought you here to heal you, so we could be together.
LISA: Together. Yes. Transplant my brain into your body. The two of us together, fused. We'll be one complete person. Isn't that what love is?
IANTO: No.
LISA: Then we are not compatible.
(She throws Ianto across the Hub. Jack tries shooting but she sends energy through his bracer.)
JACK: Argh! Code Nine manoeuvres, go! Gwen. Gwen! Get out of there.
OWEN: Lisa, what you waiting for? Quick.
(Gwen gets away. They go up to Jack's office.)
LISA: Run. We all ran.

[Jack's office]

GWEN: She's coming after us.
OWEN: There's a surprise.
GWEN: Could you be any less helpful?
OWEN: Oi, I just helped you escape.
JACK: Shut up, both of you. Okay, Now, this is a fight to the death. We do whatever is necessary to destroy her. Forget what Ianto said. That thing is not human. Clear?
GWEN: Yeah, yeah.
TOSH: What's this?
JACK: Something Suzie scavenged last year. She claimed that it could open any lock in forty five seconds. I want you out the exit gates, up the emergency stairs to reception.
OWEN: She'll never open that door without power. It weighs a ton.
TOSH: Anyway, I'm not leaving you here.
JACK: Just do as I say, all of you. Once in reception, panel next to the desk. Pull it out. Take circuit three five seven from the main system. Patch it to these. (A pair of large batteries.) There should be enough power in there for what we need. Once the main circuit goes live, get out. Meet us by the Water Tower. Go!
(Tosh leaves.)
JACK: You two. Find anything that even resembles a weapon.
OWEN: Autopsy room. There should be some lethal equipment in there.
GWEN: What are you gonna do?
JACK: Buy you some more time. Go!
(Gwen and Owen run as Lisa enters.)
JACK: Hey. Lisa. It is Lisa, isn't it? You've been hiding in my basement. That's okay. Draining my power, I can live with that. But now you're starting to hurt my friends. This is gonna stop.
(He leads Lisa away.)

[Hub]

(Tosh is using the lock-pick gizmo on the main gate.)
TOSH: Come on.
LISA: This building belongs to me now. You will all be deleted.
JACK: I'm sorry for what they did to you, but this ends here.
(Lisa electrocutes Jack.)
GWEN: Jack!
(Owen drags her away. The gate opens and Tosh gets out. Then Jack stands up.)
OWEN: How did he survive that?
JACK: Is that all you got? I'm not so easily deleted.
(So Lisa does it again.)
OWEN: We can't help him.
(Lisa turns her attention to Tosh, who is trying to open the big circular security door. She gets through and closes it just before Lisa arrives and punches her arm through the small window. Tosh runs up the stairs. Lisa turns towards Gwen.)
GWEN: Shit.

[Autopsy room]

GWEN: Is there another exit?
OWEN: No.
GWEN: We're trapped.
(Owen opens the small door to cooler drawers 5 and 6.)
OWEN: Get in.
GWEN: No way.
OWEN: Lie on top of me and it'll take us both.
GWEN: I'm not laying on top of you.
OWEN: I'm not saying it's a brilliant idea, but it's the only one we've got.
(They get in. Lisa enters. Jack wakes up and tries to revive Ianto.)
GWEN: What do we do?
(Owen pulls Gwen down for a kiss. Jack kisses Ianto. That wakes him up. Gwen's phone rings.)
OWEN: Turn that off. Where is it? Where is it?
GWEN: Quick, please.
(They struggle to get at the phone in the tiny space.)
OWEN: Turn it off. Turn the thing off.
(They drop it.)
OWEN: Turn it off!

[Waterfront]

RHYS: All right, lover, it's the man of your dreams. I've had a couple of beers with Daf and we're off for a curry, so can you video Wife Swap?

[Autopsy room]

(Gwen and Owen are out of the cooler drawer. He grabs a scalpel.)
OWEN: Don't you touch her.
(He thrusts the blade into Lisa's back. She screams and collapses. Ianto runs towards the sound.)
GWEN: What the hell was that?
OWEN: What?
GWEN: Snogging me.
OWEN: Last kiss for the condemned man. Clearly embarrassing given we haven't been killed. What? It's not like I fancy you or anything.
GWEN: I was on top of you. I could feel your hard on.
OWEN: Yeah. Well, you didn't exactly struggle, did you? It was kill or be killed.
GWEN: Owen's right. There was no choice.
(Lisa gets up again.)
GWEN: Ianto, move. Get out. Get out, I said! Move! Move!

[Hub]

OWEN: You should be dead.
JACK: I'm the stubborn type. Get behind me.

[Tourist Information Centre]

TOSH: Three five seven. Three five seven, come on.

[Hub]

[Jack has a live power cable in one hand, and a bottle of table sauce in the other.)
JACK: That's right, stay back. This'll at least give you a heartburn.
LISA: The power will run out. I can wait.
IANTO: Jack, help her. Give her a chance to surrender
OWEN: Have you not seen what she's done?
IANTO: Let her stay in the cells. We have to reverse the process.
JACK: I've told you we're past that. Hold him back.
GWEN: What are you gonna do?
JACK: Don't ask questions. Just get him on there and hold him.
(They get on the slab that takes them up to the Plass. Jack squirts the sauce over Lisa.)
GWEN: What is that stuff?
JACK: Kind of barbecue sauce. It helps her identify its food.
GWEN: Help what identify its food?
JACK: I'm sorry.
(He summons the pterodactyl from its lair.)
JACK: Come on, Tosh, hurry up.
IANTO: You'll kill her.
(The pterodactyl attacks Lisa.)
IANTO: Let me go. Let me help her!

[Tourist Information Centre]

TOSH: Yes!
(The batteries are powered up.)

[Hub]

(The slab begins to rise.)
JACK: Hold him still.
IANTO: No!
(The Cyberwoman versus dinosaur fight is almost evenly matched, but the long sharp beak is an advantage.)
IANTO: Call it off her. You can do that. Have some fucking mercy.
(Lisa starts to scream.)
IANTO: No!

[Roald Dahl Plass]

(Tosh runs to meet them.)
TOSH: It worked! What happened to
JACK: No.
(Ianto punches Jack.)
IANTO: You could have saved her. You're worse than anything locked up down there. One day, I'll have the chance to save you, and I'll watch you suffer and die.
JACK: It was the only thing that would stop her!
TOSH: Listen. When I was at reception, I managed to trip the lockdown timer. The power should be coming back on any second. We can get back in.
JACK: Ianto!

[Outside the Tourist Information Centre]

(The Jubilee Pizza delivery girl rings the bell.)
ANNIE: Pizza.
(The door opens.)
ANNIE: Ianto?
(She goes through the secret door, which is ajar.)

[Hub]

(The place is a mess.)
ANNIE: Bloody hell. Ianto? D0 you want these or not?
(The door closes behind her. The pterodactyl squeals and Lisa is still alive.)

[Roald Dahl Plass]

JACK: Ianto, stop.
GWEN: She can't have survived that attack.
TOSH: I used my initiative. I'm sorry.
JACK: When I want you to think for yourself, I'll tell you.
TOSH: Maybe if you'd told me your plan, I wouldn't have done it.

[Tourist Information Centre]

(Ianto points a gun at them.)
GWEN: Ianto, don't be stupid.
IANTO: I've nothing left to lose.
JACK: There's always something left to lose.
IANTO: I'm going back in to save her. Anybody tries to stop me, I'll shoot them.
GWEN: Ianto, put the gun down.
(Jack disarms Ianto.)
JACK: You make a threat like that, you'd better be prepared to follow it through. See? You disobey me now, I really will shoot you.
IANTO: Get off me.
JACK: You want to go back in there? You go in to finish the job. If she's still alive, you execute her.
IANTO: No way.
JACK: You brought this down on us. You hid her. You hid yourself from us. Now it's time for you to stand as part of the team.
GWEN: Jack
JACK: The girl you loved has gone. Your loyalty is to us now.
IANTO: You can't order me to do that.
JACK: You execute her or I'll execute you both.
IANTO: I won't do it. You can't make me. You like to think you're a hero, but you're the biggest monster of all.
JACK: I'm giving you ten minutes, then we're coming in. Pick it up.
(Ianto retrieves the gun and heads down to Torchwood.)
TOSH: How can you ask him?
JACK: I don't need your opinion.

[Store room]

(In the hub, Ianto sees the pizza boxes, then spots the power drain alert on the screens. He runs.)
IANTO: Lisa!
(The Cyberwoman is lying dead on the floor, with blood on her. He cries.)
ANNIE: Ianto? Ianto, it's me. It's Lisa. I'm human again.
(There is a big scar across her forehead.)
ANNIE: You fought so hard for me, I had to hold on for you, so I took this body and transplanted the brain.
IANTO: You're not Lisa.
ANNIE: You always said you didn't love me for what I looked like. Last time you said that, it was a Saturday. We were hungover. You made cheese toasties, and moaned I hadn't descaled my kettle. That night, we camped on a beach in Brittany. It got so freezing we wore our coats and shared one sleeping bag. When we woke up the next morning, a dog was pissing on our tent. Hold me, Ianto. I need you to hold me. I need you to tell me it's all right.
(He cries and backs away, pointing the gun at her. She takes him in her arms for a few moments, then he backs away again.)
ANNIE: What are you doing? Ianto, it's me. You wouldn't shoot me. I did this for you.
IANTO: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Lisa.
ANNIE: We can be upgraded together.
(Jack, Owen, Tosh and Gwen fire a barrage of bullets into Annie.)

[Jack's office]

(It is a new day. The place has been mostly cleaned up. Ianto enters the hub, still in shock. Gwen and Jack watch as Ianto goes around putting rubbish into a black plastic sack.)
GWEN: You'd never have shot him. Not really.
JACK: Wouldn't I?
GWEN: Would you have shot me if I'd gone to stand by him?
JACK: But you didn't.
GWEN: If I had, though.
JACK: But you didn't.
GWEN: Will he stay? All that deception because he couldn't bear to live without her. So, have you ever loved anyone that much? When she had hold of you, I thought, just for a moment, I thought maybe you could die after all.
JACK: Want to know a secret? So did I. And just for a second there, I felt so alive.
