Season 10, Episode 18 – Change of Plans | Red vs. Blue

December 4, 2019

CHAIRMAN: Dear Director, your request for more bases in which to conduct your experiments was reviewed with much reservation by our chairperson. Project Freelancer has been entrusted *weapon loading*
Project Freelancer has been entrusted *weapon loading*
with one of our military’s most valuable assets. with one of our military’s most valuable assets. *weapon loading* Oversight becomes a much more difficult process *metal scraping*
Oversight becomes a much more difficult process *metal scraping*
if your operations are not centralized. *metal scraping* Nonetheless, we have granted your request. However, we reserve the right to revoke this approval as we see fit. I sincerely hope this does not happen, and anticipate you will not give us an occasion to do so. WASHINGTON: *groans* NORTH: There you are! WASHINGTON: *groans* WASHINGTON: *grunts* NORTH: Slowly…slowly. WASHINGTON: How long was I out? NORTH: Only a few days this time. WASHINGTON: This time? NORTH: Yup, after they removed it. WASHINGTON: Removed it? *groans* NORTH: It’s gone. They’re gonna remove all of them. They started with you. SOUTH: Yeah, thanks asshole. The whole process is on hold now. WASHINGTON: What about Carolina? CAROLINA: I’m not giving them up! Just because he’s made a recalculation! You owe me this! DIRECTOR: Carolina, you are acting like a child. This is not about you, this is about the project. COUNSELLOR: You would be wise to listen to the director. Agent Texas has already attempted to steal Wyoming’s AI unit. If she were to come after you- CAROLINA: Then she would get more than she bargained for. NORTH: Carolina’s had it…kinda rough. The Director’s considering sending her to hunt down Texas. WASHINGTON: Hunt her down? SOUTH: She went rogue. Broke out of the facility in order to save her precious AI. Little later we found Wyoming. Apparently, she tried to steal his AI unit. Tried to get his equipment, too. NORTH: That hasn’t been proven. Besides, that doesn’t sound like her. SOUTH: How would YOU know? NORTH: Just trust me, I know, and believe me, if she had done it, there wouldn’t have been anything left of Wyoming to find. SOUTH: She’s not a fucking monster, North. WASHINGTON: You guys are giving me a headache. NORTH: Once they find Texas, they’ll bring her back. *Alarm blares* F.I.L.S.S.: Intruder Alert. Intruder Alert. Breach in security. Level 0. NORTH: Or, she’ll come back on her own. TEX: Great job, York. YORK: I swear this never happens to me. TEX: I’m sure you say that to all the ladies. YORK: Seriously, I’m way better at this than it seems. TEX: Look, we don’t have much time. *thump, electric sounds* I need you to find a way to distract them for me. Be careful. YORK: Gotcha. What about you? TEX: There’s someone I need to see. TUCKER: Let me get this straight: You guys built an enormous room, capable of creating realistic holographic simulations, but you couldn’t figure out how to walk across the canyon to capture our flag. GRIF: Actually, Lopez built it. TUCKER: Okay, now THAT I believe. SIMMONS: And, if you recall, we DID manage to capture your flag? So, y’know, suck it Blue! CABOOSE: Oh yeah? Well our team has the most kills! SARGE: Team kills don’t count, blue-tard! CABOOSE: You don’t make the rules! WASHINGTON: Technically, Project Freelancer makes the rules, and I say Blue Team gets to add my kill count to theirs. GRIF: Lame. CAROLINA: Listen up. We’ve got big news. CABOOSE: *gasps* You and Wash are taking your relationship to the next level. I knew it. The writing was all over the wall. EPSILON: No. We found the Director. CABOOSE: Church! You’re big again! What has she been feeding you? WASHINGTON: You know where the Director is hiding? CAROLINA: That’s right. EPSILON:He’s holed up in one of his off-site storage facilities, similar to the ones we’ve seen before. CAROLINA:But we have no idea what kind of modifications the Director may have made to the compound over the last few years. EPSILON: Or, if he has any sort of security with him. CAROLINA: Essentially, we need to be ready for anything. So, let’s go over the plan. TUCKER: What plan? EPSILON: The plan to take down the Director. GRIF: Uh, I though the plan was we help you FIND the Director? SIMMONS: Yeah, and now we found him! Good job everyone! Way to hustle out there! CAROLINA: The plan changed. WASHINGTON: So then what exactly IS the plan? CAROLINA: Infiltrate the facility, and neutralize all hostiles. GRIF: Right. What’s OUR plan, though? CAROLINA: That is your plan. I’m counting on all of you. GRIF: But you said we were the worst soldiers you’ve ever met! And you were right! You’re very perceptive! CAROLINA: Look, I just need enough time to make it to the Director. WASHINGTON: So then we’re just a distraction? CAROLINA: No. Wash, you’re on lock duty. I need you with me. CABOOSE: Um, we have to fight all the bad guys by ourselves? TUCKER: Fuck. That. WASHINGTON: Yeah, Carolina, maybe I should stick with the other- CAROLINA: Leave personnel decisions to me, Agent Washington. EPSILON: Look, will you guys quit complaining and do something for once? SARGE: Son, are you forgetting who SAVED your sorry ghost ass from the military? SIMMONS: Yeah, we almost died trying to find you! EPSILON: Oh boo-hoo, why don’t you come back when you’re on your second or third life? Then we’ll compare notes. GRIF: Wow. Fuck off, Blue. CAROLINA: Where do you think you’re going? GRIF: I’m going home. EPSILON: Oh that’s great, Grif! Y’know, we can always count on you to duck out when there’s work to do! SARGE: Well you can count me out, too! CAROLINA: What? SARGE: Don’t get me wrong, bustin’ into a military base on a rescue mission is a lotta fun! But I’m not gettin’ turned into Swiss cheese just so you the two of you can finish some personal vendetta! This ain’t our fight. SIMMONS: Took the words right out of my mouth, Sir. CAROLINA: Both of you, be quiet! TUCKER: Dude, this is bullshit. EPSILON: Tucker?! CAROLINA: Be quiet! That’s an order! TUCKER: Well guess what, psycho? I don’t take orders from you anymore! CAROLINA: Well, what about NOW? WASHINGTON: Don’t. Do that. CAROLINA: Wash, what are you doing? WASHINGTON: Protecting my friends. Now lower, the weapon. CAROLINA: You’re siding with them? EPSILON: Wash, I don’t understand! We found the Director! We can make him pay! This is what we wanted! WASHINGTON: All I want is for you to leave. I’ve already been responsible for enough of their problems in the past. And I’ll be damned before I let you cause any more. EPSILON: So that’s it? You’re just gonna turn your back on us? WASHINGTON: Epsilon, I know- EPSILON: No, no, you’re right! Y’know, I guess I should’ve seen that one coming! It’s not exactly like you’re new to the concept, is it? SARGE: That’s a little harsh. EPSILON: But you guys?! After all the shit you’ve put me through?! I really thought at least YOU would have my back! GRIF: Us?! What the hell did WE do?! EPSILON: You SHOT me through the head, you put a BOMB in my gut, you KILLED me with my own damn TANK! And that’s just how we MET! TUCKER: Church, calm down! What’s your problem?! EPSILON: YOU’RE my problem! You’ve ALWAYS been my problem! Each and every one of you, is *echoing* JUST A PROBLEM! *echoing* THAT I HAVE TO DEAL WITH! *echoing* ON A DAILY BASIS! EPSILON: Guys… EPSILON: Guys, uh, wait a minute. EPSILON: Caboose… CAROLINA: Forget it, Church. We don’t need them. WASHINGTON: I don’t know what’s gotten into you, Carolina. But you better figure out the difference between your enemies, and your friends. CABOOSE: Where am I? Oh, hey, that looks nice! Oh my God! A giant person! *metallic whoosh* *Rooster Teeth Outro*

    Carolina: I don't know what's gotten into you, Tex, but you better figure out the difference between your enemies, and your friends.

    This, combined with "leave the personel decisions to me" line that she got from the Director, tells us a lot about how similar she actually is with the people she hates most. (Worth pointing out that both the Director and Tex are literally Carolina's family).

    Has anyone ever wondered if York purposely tripped the alarm? I mean the only reason he's bad at holographic locks is his eye, which hurts his depth perception. He's shown to be adept at everything else, so he probably could have not tripped the alarm. Maybe to see Carolina?

    Michael Creed (Maine), his tattoo on the back of his head is the same design that sigma made on the computer in the episode of Project Freelancer where they are taking a seminar on proper AI maintenance. Sigma was curious about the Metastability phase and when the class was dismissed, Sigma stayed behind and created that design on the screen.

    The Freelancers work of off personal missions, revenge plots and anger. They work off the past and the pain it gave them. They compete and kill for power to fulfill their final goal.

    The teams? They work off of teamwork and the here-and-now.

    The thing that gets me the most is how Caboose was always there beside Epsilon in the beginning . In the memory unit, Caboose tells Epsilon stories and that is the starting point on where everything was. In the dessert, Caboose was set on finding Epsilon a body that could talk and be mobile. Caboose went with Epsilon went he remembered a base and followed without question. He was in charge of remembering Church. Finally, even if Epsilon didn’t like it, he helped him get out of the capture unit safely. Epsilon wouldn’t be where he was if it wasn’t for Caboose and just to be shouted at and be called a problem just hurts and makes me want to hug Caboose.

    If York were still alive she wouldn't be like this. He was her conscience, the one who told her when she was taking things to far. The one that reminded her what she was really fighting for. And the one who made it worth coming back alive. She respected York more then anyone. She loved him more then anyone. She lost everything she ever loved. So of course vengeance is all she can think about. And church has suffered as well. He had to lose Tex over and over again.

  • Reply Flashfan123 Campbell August 18, 2019 at 8:34 pm

    When Church threatened to kill him, Caboose still wanted to be his friend.
    When Church left Caboose trapped in his suit with no oxygen for two days, Caboose still wanted to be his friend.
    When Church told Caboose he hated him for freeing him from the capture unit, Caboose still wanted to be his friend.

    I guess hearing Church call him nothing but a problem was the straw that broke the camel's back.
