Scene 1 - The Ark: Sky Box
Clarke I feel the sun on my face. I see trees all around me, the scent of wildflowers on a breeze. It's so beautiful. In this moment, I'm not stranded in space. It's been ninety-seven years since a nuclear apocalypse killed everyone on Earth, leaving the planet simmering in radiation. Fortunately, there were survivors. Twelve nations had operational space stations at the time of the bombs. There is now only the Ark, one station forged from the many. We're told the Earth needs another hundred years to become survivable again. Four more space-locked generations, and man can go home, back to the ground. The ground, that's the dream. This is reality.
[Door opens]
Male Guard Prisoner three-one-nine, face the wall.
Clarke Reality sucks.
Clarke What is this?
Male Guard Quiet. Hold out your right arm.
Clarke No. No. It's not my time. I don't turn eighteen for another month.
Male Guard Hold out your arm.
Clarke On The Ark, every crime, no matter how small, is punishable by death unless you're under eighteen.
Male Guard Your watch.
Clarke No. It was my father's.
Male Guard Take it off.
Clarke No.
Male Guard Hey!
Clarke No.
Clarke Juvenile offenders get put here… Lockup. We call it the Sky Box.
[Door opens]
Costa Prisoner three nineteen…
Abby Clarke, stop. Wait here.
Clarke Mom? Mom, what's going on? What is this?
Male Guard Come on. Let's go.
Clarke They're killing us all, aren't they, reducing population to make more time for the rest of you?
Abby Clarke, you are not being executed. You're being sent to the ground, all one hundred of you.
Clarke What? But it's not safe. No. No.
Abby Shh.
Clarke We get reviewed at eighteen.
Abby The rules have changed. This gives you a chance to live. Your instincts will tell you to take care of everybody else first, just like your father. But be careful, I can't lose you, too. I love you so much.
Clarke Oh! [Click] (as Clarke gets shot with a needle and faints into Abby's arms)
Abby Earth, Clarke. You get to go to Earth.

Scene 2 — Exodus Ship
[Indistinct conversations]
Clarke [Winces]
Wells Welcome back... Look—
Clarke Wells, why the hell are you here?
Wells When I found out they were sending prisoners to the ground, I got myself arrested. I came for you.
Clarke [obvious shock at Wells' response]
Various delinquents [Crash] Aah! Oh! Oh!
Clarke What was that?
Wells That was the atmosphere.
Jaha [on video screen] Prisoners of The Ark, hear me now. You've been given a second chance, and as your Chancellor, it is my hope that you see this as not just a chance for you, but a chance for all of us, indeed for mankind itself. We have no idea what is waiting for you down there. If the odds of survival were better, we would've sent others. Frankly, we're sending you because your crimes have made you expendable.
Male Delinquent Your dad is a dick, Wells.
Jaha Those crimes will be forgiven, your records wiped clean.
Scene 3 — The Ark: Government and Science Station
Various parents I saw a ship launch not more than twenty minutes ago.
Who was on it?
Was it the prisoners?
They're just kids.
Are they going to Earth? Has something changed?
Callie Folks, as I said, at this time, we cannot confirm or deny anything.
Various parents Come on, lady!
Was my son on that ship?
Scene 4 — Exodus Ship
Jaha The drop site has been chosen carefully. Before the last war, Mount Weather was a military base built within a mountain. It was to be stocked with enough non-perishables to sustain three hundred people for up to two years.
Various delinquents Spacewalk bandit strikes again.
Go, Finn!
Finn Check it out. Your dad floated me, after all.
Wells You should strap in before the parachutes deploy.
Clarke Hey, you two, stay put if you want to live.
Jaha Mount Weather is life. You must locate those supplies immediately.
Finn Hey, you're the traitor who's been in solitary for a year.
Clarke You're the idiot who wasted a month of oxygen on an illegal spacewalk.
Finn But it was fun. I'm Finn.
Jaha Your one responsibility is stay alive.
Clarke Stay in your seats. Finn, are you okay?
Male delinquent Whoa!
Scene 5 — The Ark
Kane [to Callie] Not now.
Sinclair Total system failure, that's what we're looking at. All we know for sure is that they were off course when we lost contact, so…
Kane Tell me about communications.
Sinclair Other than the telemetry from their wristbands, we got nothing… No audio, no video, no computer link. Everything that we programmed in to help them is gone. They're on their own.
Scene 6 — Exodus Ship
Wells Retrorockets ought to have fired by now.
Clarke Okay. Everything on this ship is a hundred years old, right? Just give it a second.
Wells Clarke, there's something I have to tell you. I'm sorry I got your father arrested.
Clarke Don't you talk about my father.
Wells Please, I can't die knowing that you hate me.
Clarke They didn't arrest my father, Wells. They executed him. I do hate you.
[People shouting]
[Machines stop]
Monty Listen. No machine hum.
Jasper Whoa. That's a first.
[Buckles clicking]
Clarke Finn, is he breathing?
male The outer door is on the lower level. Let's go.
Clarke No. We can't just open the doors.
Bellamy Hey, just back it up, guys.
Clarke Stop. The air could be toxic.
Bellamy If the air is toxic, we're all dead, anyway.
Octavia Bellamy?
Bellamy My God, look how big you are.
Octavia What the hell are you wearing, a guard's uniform?
Bellamy I borrowed it to get on the drop ship. Someone has got to keep an eye on you. Ha ha!
Clarke Where's your wristband?
Octavia Do you mind? I haven't seen my brother in a year.
Male delinquent No one has a brother.
Female delinquent That's Octavia Blake, the girl they found hidden in the floor.
Bellamy Octavia, Octavia, no. Let's give them something else to remember you by.
Octavia Yeah? Like what?
Bellamy Like being the first person on the ground in a hundred years.
Octavia [Exhales] Ah… [Steps onto Earth] We're back, bitches!
[All cheering]

Finn Why so serious, Princess? It's not like we died in a fiery explosion.
Clarke Try telling that to the two guys who tried to follow you out of their seats.
Finn You don't like being called Princess, do you, Princess?
Clarke Do you see that peak over there?
Finn Yeah.
Clarke Mount Weather. There's a radiation-soaked forest between us and our next meal. They dropped us on the wrong damn mountain.
Scene 7 — the Ark
Kane There it is. We know they've landed, but communications are down, which means we're still blind to conditions on the ground. Thanks to Abby's wristbands, at least we know how those conditions affect the human body, which is more than we've had for a hundred years. So nice work. Now, what are they telling us?
Abby Two dead kids, dark tiles. Dr. Jackson, please share our theory with Councilor Kane.
Jackson Of course. Granted, they've only been on the ground for seven minutes, but as of now, we believe the fatalities are due to the landing, not radiation levels.
Abby Both boys died at the same time that we lost contact with the drop ship.
Kane Rough landing? That's your theory?
Abby The dots connect.
Kane Would you agree that if it was radiation, we'd see fatalities climb fairly quickly now? Because I'm noticing a lot of red on that board.
Abby Spiking vital signs, two possibilities, one, injuries sustained during landing.
Kane And the other?
Abby They're excited to be there.
Scene 8 — Earth: The Camp
Wells We got problems. The communications system is dead. I went to the roof. A dozen panels are missing. Heat fried the wires.
Clarke Well, all that matters right now is getting to Mount Weather. See? Look. This is us. This is where we need to get to if we want to survive.
Wells Where'd you learn to do that? Your father.
Jasper Ah, cool, a map. They got a bar in this town? I'll buy you a beer.
Wells You mind?
Jasper Whoa.
Murphy Hey, hey, hey, hands off of him. He's with us.
Wells Relax. We're just trying to figure out where we are.
Bellamy We're on the ground. That not good enough for you?
Wells We need to find Mount Weather. You heard my father's message. That has to be our first priority.
Octavia Screw your father. What, you think you're in charge here, you and your little Princess?
Clarke Do you think we care who's in charge? We need to get to Mount Weather not because the Chancellor said so, but because the longer we wait, the hungrier we'll get and the harder this'll be. How long do you think we'll last without those supplies? We're looking at a twenty-mile trek, okay? So if we want to get there before dark, we need to leave now.
Bellamy I got a better idea. You two go, find it for us. Let the privileged do the hard work for a change.
Delinquents Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
Wells You're not listening. We all need to go.
Murphy Look at this, everybody… The Chancellor of Earth.
Wells Think that's funny?
Murphy Uh!
Clarke Wells.
Male delinquent Yeah, Come on. Get him!
Murphy No, but that was. All right.
Male delinquent What you gonna do now, Wells?
Murphy Come on. Come on.
Male delinquent Whoo! Whoo!
Wells Aw. Aw.
Finn Kid's got one leg. How about you wait until it's a fair fight?
Octavia [to Finn] Hey, spacewalker, rescue me next. [to Bellamy] What? He's cute.
Bellamy He's a criminal.
Octavia They're all criminals.
Bellamy Look, O. I came down here to protect you.
Octavia I don't need protecting. I have been locked up one way or another all my life. I am done following orders. I need to have fun, Bell. I need to just do something crazy just because I can, and no one, including you, is gonna stop me.
Bellamy I can't stay with them, O.
Octavia Now what are you talking about?
Female delinquent Go find something.
Bellamy I did something, okay, to get on the drop ship, something that they will kill me for when they come down. I can't say what it is just yet, but you have to trust me. You do still trust me, don't you?
Octavia Yeah.
Finn [to Clarke] Uh! So Mount Weather. When do we leave?
Clarke Right now. We'll be back tomorrow with food.
Wells How are the two of you gonna carry enough food for a hundred?
Finn [Grabs Monty and Jasper] Four of us. Can we go now?
Octavia Sounds like a party. Make it five.
Bellamy Hey, what the hell are you doing?
Octavia Going for a walk.
Clarke [to Finn] Hey, were you trying to take this off?
Finn Yeah. So?
Clarke So this wristband transmits your vital signs to The Ark. Take it off, and they'll think you're dead.
Finn Should I care?
Clarke Well, I don't know. Do you want the people you love to think you're dead? Do you want them to follow you down here in two months? Because they won't if they think we're dying.
Finn Okay.
Clarke Now let's go.
Bellamy Go on.
Octavia Mwah!
Clarke You shouldn't have come here, Wells.
Octavia Before you get any ideas, Finn is mine.
Clarke Before you get any ideas, I don't care.
Scene 9 — The Ark: Earth Monitoring Station
Callie Hey, darling, how's Clarke?
Abby Her vital signs are strong, blood sugar is low. She hasn't eaten.
[Telephone rings]
Abby This is Dr. Griffin. On my way. Jackson, put it out there we need blood… A' neg. And a lot of it, and then get your ass to the O.R.
Callie Abby, what's wrong?
Abby The Chancellor has been shot.
Scene 10 — Earth: The Woods
Jasper Now, that, my friend, is game.
Monty That, my friend, is poison sumac.
Octavia What? It is?
Monty The flowers aren't poisonous. They're medicinal, calming, actually.
Jasper His family grows all the pharmaceuticals on The Ark.
Clarke Hey, guys, would you try to keep up?
Finn Come on, Clarke. How do you block all this out?
Clarke Well, it's simple. I wonder, ‘why haven't we seen any animals?' Maybe it's because there are none. Maybe we've already been exposed to enough radiation to kill us. Sure is pretty, though. Come on.
Octavia Someone should slip her some poison sumac.
Jasper [Snorts]
Finn I got to know what you two did to get busted.
Monty Sumac is not the only herb in the garden, if you know what I mean.
Jasper Someone forget to replace what we took.
Monty Someone has apologized, like, a thousand times.
Jasper How about you, Octavia? What'd they get you for?
Octavia Being born.
Monty That is so not game.
Finn No animals, huh?
Scene 11 — The Ark
Abby Chancellor has lost a lot of blood. If only they found him sooner, damn it.
Jackson He's waking up.
Abby Increase the anesthesia.
Jackson We used way too much blood and anesthesia.. We're way over the line.
Abby Your Chancellor is going into shock.
Jackson You're asking me to break the law.
Abby Fine. I'll do it myself. Let them come after me.
Shumway Excuse me, sir. You asked to be notified if there was news. The Chancellor is still in surgery, but we have I.D.ed the shooter. Bellamy Blake is the only person on The Ark unaccounted for.
Kane Who is he?
Shumway He's no one, a janitor. We're still working up a profile, but his motive for going to Earth is clear.
Kane Sister. I remember. Her mother kept her hidden for almost sixteen years, nearly a record. What is it, Commander Shumway. Spit it out.
Shumway We could start now. As Chancellor pro tempore, you can give the order to start reducing the population.
Kane Not yet.
Shumway Sir, we're wasting time. Removing the one hundred from the population only buys us another month. Engineering needs more than that to fix those systems, if they can fix them at all.
Kane You have my answer, Commander. Enough. If we're gonna kill hundreds of innocent people, we're gonna do it by the book. Is that clear? In the meantime, I want to know who helped this janitor get on that drop ship because he sure as hell didn't do it by himself. Seems we have a traitor in our midst, Commander, and the hundred have an assassin in theirs.
Scene 12 — Earth: The Camp
Murphy Find any water yet?
Wells No, not yet, but, I'm going back out if you want to come.
Murphy You know, my father, he begged for mercy in the airlock chamber when your father floated him.
Wells You spelled die wrong, geniuses.
Bellamy If you're gonna kill someone, it's probably best not to announce it.
Murphy You're not really a member of the guard, are you?
Bellamy No. The real guard will be here soon unless we stop it. You don't actually think they're gonna forgive your crimes. Even if they do, then what? Guys like us, we're gonna become model citizens now, get jobs, if we're lucky, maybe pick up their trash?
Mbege You got a point?
Bellamy No. I got a question. They locked you up, dumped you down here like lab rats to die. So why are you helping them?
Mbege The hell we are.
Bellamy You're wearing those bracelets, aren't you? Right now, those things are telling them whether or not it's safe to follow us down.
Murphy Okay. You said we could stop it. How?
Bellamy Take them off. The Ark will think you're dead, that it's not safe to follow. You follow?
Murphy Right, and if we do, I mean, what's in it for us?
Bellamy Someone has got to help me run things.
Scene 13 — The Ark: Earth Monitoring Station
Callie Hey, Ab. How's the Chancellor doing?
Abby Ask me again if he makes it through the night. Who else did we lose?
Apprentice Murphy and Mbege, both named John.
Kane Neither was injured during landing.
Apprentice I concur. Something else killed these two. One second, they were fine, and the next, bang.
Abby Then it isn't radiation.
Kane Come on, Abby. Wishful thinking isn't good science.
Abby It's not wishful thinking. One second, fine, the next, bang isn't how exposure to radiation presents.
Kane Well, it could be if there was enough of it.
Abby If there was enough of it, they would all be dead. Please let me be right.
Scene 14 — The Woods
Finn Hey, you know what I'd like to know? Why send us down today after ninety seven years? What changed?
Octavia Who cares? I'm just glad they did. I woke up rotting in a cell, and now I'm spinning in a forest.
Monty Maybe they found something on a satellite, you know, like an old weather satellite or it wasn't a satellite.
Clarke The Ark is dying. At the current population level, there's roughly three months left of life support, maybe four now that we're gone.
Finn So that was the secret they locked you up to keep, why they kept you in solitary, floated your old man?
Clarke My father was the engineer who discovered the flaw. He thought the people had a right to know. The Council disagreed. My mother disagreed. They were afraid it would cause a panic. We were gonna go public, anyway, when Wells…
Monty What, turned in your dad?
Clarke Anyway, the guard showed up before we could. That's why today. That's why it was worth the risk. Even if we all die, at least they bought themselves more time.
Monty They're gonna kill more people, aren't they?
Octavia Good. After what they did to me, I say, float them all.
Jasper You don't mean that.
Finn We have to warn them.
Clarke That's what my father said.
Jasper Oh, damn, I love Earth.
Monty Oh! Holy…
Finn Ha ha!
Jasper Hoo hoo hoo.
Clarke Octavia, what the hell are you doing?
Monty Octavia! We can't swim.
Octavia I know, but we can stand. Ha ha ha!
Clarke Wait. There's not supposed to be a river here.
Finn Well, there is. So take off your damn clothes.
Jasper Oh… Octavia, get out of the water! Get out of the water now!
Octavia Aah!
Jasper Octavia!
Octavia Aah!
Jasper No.
Octavia Aah! Aah!
Monty What the hell is that? We have to help her. What are you gonna do?
Finn Try not to get eaten.
Clarke No. Wait. If we distract it, it might let her go. Help me.
Octavia Aah! No! Uh!
Finn It worked. It let her go.
Jasper Octavia, get to the shore now!
[Octavia gasping]
Jasper I got you.
Finn It's coming back.
Clarke It's headed right for you, guys.
Finn Come on. Come on. Keep going.
Clarke Okay.
Octavia Thank you. Thank you.
Clarke You're gonna be okay.
Monty Note to self, next time, save the girl.
Scene 15 — Earth: The Camp
[People whooping]
Female delinquent Yeah. Go on, baby.
Male delinquent Yeah. Keep going.
Fox Ah, ah… ah!
[All whooping]
Bellamy Who's next?
Wells What the hell are you doing?
Bellamy We're liberating ourselves. What does it look like?
Wells It looks like you're trying to get us all killed. The communication system is dead. These wristbands are all we got. Take them off, and the Ark will think we're dying, that it's not safe for them to follow.
Bellamy That's the point, Chancellor. We can take care of ourselves, can't we?
Delinquents Yeah!
Wells You think this is a game? Those aren't just our friends and our parents up there. They're our farmers, our doctors, our engineers. I don't care what he tells you. We won't survive here on our own, and besides, if it really is safe, how could you not want the rest of our people to come down?
Bellamy My people already are down. Those people locked my people up. Those people killed my mother for the crime of having a second child. Your father did that.
Wells My father didn't write the laws.
Bellamy No. He enforced them, but not anymore, not here. Here, there are no laws.
Delinquents Yeah.
Yeah cool.
Bellamy Here, we do whatever the hell we want whenever the hell we want. Now, you don't have to like it, Wells. You can even try to stop it or change it, kill me. You know why? Whatever the hell we want.
Murphy Whatever the hell we want!
Male delinquent Whatever the hell we want!

[All cheering]
Scene 16 — The Ark: Earth Monitoring Station
Jackson Ten more, one after the next. Abby, look at plasma osmolarity. It's going up across the board.
Abby They found water.
Kane Councilor Abigail Griffin, you're under arrest for exceeding the maximum medical supplies allowed for a patient. Sorry this has to be public. The policy in these matters is very clear, no special treatment. How much blood did you use, Abby?
Jackson Don't answer that.
Abby I used whatever it took. Breaking the law to keep you from becoming Chancellor was the easiest decision I've ever made.
Kane In that case, given your confession, in my role as Chancellor pro tempore, you leave me no choice but to find you guilty.
Abby We always have a choice, Kane. You chose to press charges against my husband, your friend, even though you knew he would get floated for it. You chose to include my daughter in those charges, and now you're choosing this. Hiding behind the law absolves you of nothing.
Kane Be that as it may, in accordance with penal code one, because all crimes committed by those above the age of majority are capital crimes, you are hereby sentenced to death. Execution is set for the morning, and I choose at every turn and at any cost to make sure that the human race stays alive.
Abby That's the difference between us, Kane. I choose to make sure that we deserve to stay alive.
[Door closes]
Scene 17 — Earth: The Woods
[Birds chirping]
[Music playing]
Finn Pretty cool, huh?
Clarke Did you go to the river?
Finn Figured it was worth losing a finger or two. Here. You call that a sip? You think this means we're all gonna grow two heads?
Clarke Ha ha!
Finn What do you know? She can laugh. Come on. You have to see this. That's a toe. Plus, near as I can tell, whatever it is, it's walking on two feet. My guess… Monkeys.
Clarke Pbbt! Ha! I'm sorry. It's just, according to everything I've read, there were no bipedal animals anywhere near here, certainly not monkeys.
Finn Right. You read anything about glow-in-the-dark forests or man-eating snakes?
Scene 18 — The Ark
[Door opens]
Callie Are you out of your mind? You can't just kill everyone who disagrees with you.
Kane Now, you all think I'm a bad guy, but I'm the only one who's willing to do what it takes to save us.
Callie She's my best friend.
Kane So what do you want me to say, I'm sorry? I'm not. Friendship is a luxury we can't afford, and if I have to take us down to a cosmic Adam and Eve, I will do it.
Callie Please, show mercy, if not for Abby, then for me.
Kane We can't afford mercy, either.
Scene 19 — Earth: The Woods
Wells Mmph…
Bellamy Shh. Shh. That's far enough. I don't want to shoot you, Wells, hell, I like you, but I do need them to think that you're dead.
Wells Why? Why are you doing this, for real, not some crap about getting to do what you want to do?
Bellamy I have my reasons. I also have the gun. So I ask the questions, and the question is, why aren't you helping me? Your dad banished you, Wells, and yet here you are, still doing his bidding, following the rules. Aren't you tired of always doing what's expected of you? Stand up to him. Take off that wristband, and you'll be amazed at how good it feels.
Wells No. Never. Not gonna happen. Is that clear enough for you?
Bellamy Yeah. It is. I'm sorry it had to be this way.
Wells No! No! Get off of me! No!
Bellamy Get him down. Put him down.
Wells No! Come on, man. Let me go.
Bellamy Get it. Do it.
Wells No! Don't do this! Don't do this! No. No! Come on, man. Aah!
Scene 20 — The Ark
[Door opens]
Male Guard Dr. Griffin, it's time.
Abby Callie.
Kane That's enough.
Abby Watch out for Clarke for me. Okay.
Abby Jackson, use the wristbands. There may be a way to reverse-engineer them for communication. Talk to Sinclair in engineering. Nod if you understand.
Jaha Stop. Dr. Griffin is pardoned. I'll deal with you later. Open the door. Open the door.
Abby I spent twelve hours putting those intestines back together. Get him back to bed now.
Jaha Tell me about the one hundred. Did they make it?
Scene 21 — Earth: The Woods
[Music playing]
Clarke You wanted to go first. Now quit stalling.
Octavia Mount Weather awaits.
Jasper Just hang on till the apogee, and you'll be fine.
Finn The apogee like the Indians, right?
Jasper Apogee, not apache.
Clarke He knows. Today, Finn.
Finn Aye, aye, captain. See you on the other side.
Jasper Wait.
Finn What?
Jasper Let me. I can do it.
Finn Knew there was a badass in there somewhere.
Jasper Heh heh.
Finn Hey, it's okay to be afraid, Jasper. The trick is not fighting it.
Jasper See you on the other side. Ha ha! Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! Yeah! We are apogee! Yeah!
Clarke Yeah!
Finn Yes! Whoo!
Octavia Yeah! Whoo!
Clarke You did it, Jasper!
Jasper Whoo! Yeah! Ha ha ha!
Finn Let's go, Princess. You're up.
Jasper Come on, Clarke! You got this! Whoo! Apogee! We did it! Mount Weather! Whoo! Whoo!
Monty Yes!
Jasper Whoo!
Finn Yeah, Jasper!
Clarke Jasper.
Finn Come on. Come on. Come on. Jasper!
Clarke Jasper! No. Come on.
Finn Get down. Get down.
Octavia Come on.
Clarke We're not alone.
