EXT DARK STORMY NIGHT, OPEN FIELD WITH CLIFFS

[Will and Helen crouched down, Helen holding a gun]

WILL
I said, are you sure this is it?

HELEN
Keep your voice down! We're trying to remain undetected. That does require a modicum of silence.

WILL
Modicum. Right. Why are we hiding? We're on an island in the middle of nowhere. And it's a crypt, not the Pentagon.

HELEN
A crypt potentially containing an elixir capable of prolonging life for centuries. Such secrets are rarely left ungarded.

WILL
Yeah, but why can't we just...

HELEN
Look.

[Helen hands Will a spyglass. Will looks toward the crypt and see creatures guarding it.]

HELEN
Keepers of the Dead. Best to be avoided if at all possible.

WILL
Right.

[Helen and Ashley exchange hand signals]

WILL
I got "I'm going in" and "go around" but what was that wiggly one you did?

HELEN
"Either we work together or we die." Let's go.

WILL
Okay.

[Helen, Will and Ashley head towards the crypt]

HELEN
Take the other side. Draw them away if you can.

WILL
You're kidding, right?

HELEN
Go quickly, before they...

[The keepers attack]

HELEN
Ahsley!

[Ashley fights and shoots a group of Keepers then runs towards Helen who is shooting Keepers]

ASHLEY
Okay, I know this was not on the brochure!

HELEN
This is why we don't work with Sylvio. His intel is hopeless! Ashley! Go to the crypt! Go!

[Will goes to the crypt, while Helen and Ashley continue fighting]

ASHLEY
Mom!

[Will enters crypt and looks around using his flashlight. He stands on an emblem and a green liquid fills the emblem.]

HELEN
I'm going in!

[Helen goes into crypt.]

HELEN
Will...

WILL
This might be my first crypt, but aren't they supposed to hold dead people?

[Three young women are uncovered in the crypts]

INT SANCTUARY ASHLEY’S ROOM

HELEN
Are you sure about this? I mean, I could go with you, or maybe you could take...

ASHLEY
Take the Big Guy? Mom, come on, it's just a clean-up job, not a major operation. I'll be fine on my own.

HELEN
A humanoid chameleon living under the city is hardly a clean-up job. It's more of a...

ASHLEY
Problem. Yeah. Our kind of problem. One we should have taken care of before we went to Scotland. I can handle it. You got your hands full here.

HELEN
Do you have everything you need?

ASHLEY
Uh, yeah. Henry wants me to field-test some new stuff. And... if the gear fails, I'll just use the patented Magnus charm.

[Ashley loads a round in the shotgun.]

HELEN
Right. Well...I just wanted to connect. You know, we rarely get the chance.

AHSLEY
Awe, mom...All righty, then. One nasty chameleon subterranean menace going down.

HELEN
Ashley?

ASHLEY
Yeah?

HELEN
Be careful.

ASHLEY
Always, Mom. See you.

INT SANCTUARY MAIN CELL ROOM

[The three women from the crypt are laying on beds. Helen is tending to them.]

WILL
Three not-so-dead women found in coffins. Just another day at the office.

HELEN
All three are comatose. Fortunately, brain functions and vital organs seem to be intact.

WILL
So they're normal?

HELEN
Near as I can tell. The scans aren't detecting any physical anomalies,
but they can only tell us so much. I'm administering a time-released stimulant. It should bring them back to consciousness slowly, with as little physical trauma as possible.

WILL
What about emotional trauma?

HELEN
That's more your department, I should think. Until they awaken, we have to rely on more traditional forensic methods. Now, this fella...

[Helen moves to a bed with one of the keepers of the dead on it.]

WILL
Fond memories.

HELEN
These creatures detected our presence early and possessed unnatural
speed and strength.

WILL
Definitely not normal.

HELEN
Not as you would define it, no. I was about to gather some fluid samples. Care to assist?

WILL
Ah....I'd love to, but...I'd better get back to my office and get the whole head-shrinking operation up and running.

HELEN
As you wish.

INT SANCTUARY MEDICAL ROOM

WOMAN 1
No!

[Will runs down hall and into the medical room.]

WILL
Hi. It's nice to see you're finally awake. I'm Dr. Zimmerman. Will. Can you understand anything I'm saying? Hey, it's okay. It's okay. You're okay. You're in a safe place.

[Will reaches out to comfort her and she grabs him and pulls in into an embrace.]

WILL
Okay, okay. You're in a safe place. Just relax.

[She releases Will.]

WOMAN 1
I...am Danu.

WILL
So you can talk.

DANU
My sisters, Tatha and Caird...are they...?

WILL
They're fine. Your sisters are fine. You just woke up first. You're in a medical facility. We brought you here after we found you in a... dark place. Do you have any idea how you ended up there?

DANU
Creatures...they came to our village. They weren't human.

WILL
Yeah, sounds familiar.

DANU
They...took us with them, and then...I woke up here.

WILL
Your village. Is there anyone there, your friends or family that we can contact? Let them know you're all right?

DANU
I'm sorry, I just...I can't remember.

WILL
That’s okay. You just take your time.

DANU
This place, it's like...nothing I've...ever seen before. There's...There is light, but I see no candles. There's warmth...but there's no fire, no sunlight.

WILL
Danu, before you and your sisters were taken, how much do you remember?

DANU
Last mass...we were mourning the loss of our priest to the miasmas.

WILL
The miasmas?

DANU
It's a sickness that has cursed many villages surrounding us in recent months. There is no cure.

WILL
So you remember the miasmas. Anything else?

DANU
Why can't I remember?

WILL
Just give it time.

INT SANCTUARY MEDICAL LAB ROOM

[Helen is doing an autopsy on the keeper. Will wakes in during her dictation.]

HELEN
These creatures exhibit a terrifying propensity for violence. Physiology appears human in base form, though significant anomalies to the face and torso indicate the possibility of mutation
at a base genetic level.

WILL
Okay, you need to...you need to put a sock on the door or something before you do that.

HELEN
He's breathtaking, isn't he?

WILL
Yeah, that's one way of putting it.

HELEN
How are our guests doing?

WILL
Confused. At least the one who's awake is. She mentioned a disease
that was killing people in her village, called the "miasmas"? Which translates from the Greek meaning "poisoned air".

HELEN
Plague, actually.

WILL
The bubonic plague, specifically however, the last reported serious outbreak was in Scotland in... 800 AD.

HELEN
Meaning?

WILL
She's crazy.

HELEN
Is that your professional opinion?

WILL
Look I know there's a lot of things that are outside the realm of our knowledge, blah, blah, blah, but logically, if she were from 800 AD,
she wouldn't speak English the way we do. I'm guessing that linguistics and grammar have evolved somewhat since then.

HELEN
Some would say "de-evolved".

WILL
Whatever. The point is that we wouldn't understand her. Which makes her a very sweet, very delusional woman.

HELEN
Possibly.

WILL
If you have a theory, please, share it with the class.

HELEN
The liquid we found the three of them in bears similar chemical properties to suspended animation formulae used by southern voodoo cults.

WILL
The human body cannot survive intact for 1,200 years; I don't care what kind of magic bath products you use.

HELEN
And I agree. So...these women are either far more than they appear, or...to use your incredibly clever vernacular...

WILL
Crazy.

HELEN
The question we should be asking is why the Keepers were so anxious to stop us from getting into that crypt. What is it about these women that they don't want us to know?

INT SANCTUARY MEDICAL ROOM

[The sisters are all wake now and they hold hands causing vibrations in nearby glasses.]

EXT CRYPT

RADIO VOICE
We've got evidence of two women and a man out here, and a hell of a lot of 45 mm cartridges.

CABAL MAN 1
Round up the Keepers. Mobilize Alpha team for a priority one retrieval. Whoever took our property is going to pay.

EXT TUNNEL UNDER CITY

[Ashley is hunting the humanoid chameleon. The chameleon avoids her gun fire and knocks Ashley down. Ashley uses a kinda taser on the creature.]

ASHLEY
Piece of cake.

INT SANCTUARY WILL’S OFFICE

CAIRD
Why is nothing familiar to us? I seem myself in the mirror, and I recognize my face. I know Tatha and Danu, but the person I thought I was...you're telling me there is no village, no sickness. The little I can remember is false. How can we all not feel completely lost?

TATHA
Danu has told us that you insist there were no magics involved, that what we suffer is simply a malady.

WILL
It's more of an emotional shield. We found you in a crypt surrounded by monsters. It's normal for the human psyche to put itself in a safe mode.

DANU
We want to accept your diagnosis, Doctor, and we're grateful for all that you've done. It's just...

WILL
You're still not buying it. The clinical term is schizoaffective disorder. It's a delusional state stemming from acute post-traumatic stress.

TATHA
But we are all three suffering from the same disorder. How is that possible?

WILL
Delusional behavior occurring virally in groups is rare, but it's not undocumented, particularly amongst siblings. Look, let me put it this way; there is no logical or physical way that your memories can be real. And the sooner you accept that, the sooner we can continue to make progress.

INT SANCTUARY LAB ROOM

[Helen is working on crypt keeper as Big Foot enters with tray.]

HELEN
Excellent timing. I'm starved.

BIG FOOT
They are beautiful.

HELEN
They truly are. I've never seen anything like them.

BIG FOOT
They are frightened.

[Big Foot was talking about the women on the monitor; Helen just realizes.]

HELEN
Oh, yes. Well, quite confusing, I'd imagine. Waking up here, no memories believing you're from the Middle Ages.

BIG FOOT
Are they?

HELEN
Well, there's the rub; I can't quite rule the possibility out. When Will entered the crypt, he said he set off some sort of mechanism that drained the coffins of a green-hued liquid, which, thankfully, I was able to preserve.

BIG FOOT
You think this kept them alive?

HELEN
I don't know for certain, but it does contain several key elements that could induce a form of cryogenic stasis in humans.

BIG FOOT
If they are not abnormals...

HELEN
I know. Why guard them so ferociously?

INT SANCTUARY WILL’S OFFICE

WILL
I want you to concentrate on the sound of my voice. I'm gonna count backwards from five...four...three...two...one. Danu, can you hear me?

DANU
Yes.

WILL
I want you to go back to the last thing you remember before you woke up here.

DANU
The creatures. They're too strong. We can't escape...Why are they doing this? We've done nothing wrong! They're making us drink something...darkness.

WILL
I want you to go back further. Find a memory of something that happened before the creatures took you.

DANU
Moonlight. I'm in a field. It's cold. I can sense the dead, their souls extinguished. Only we remain.

INT SANCTUARY MEDICAL LAB

HELEN
What do you make of these? I found them on the right-hand index finger of each of the three women.

BIG FOOT
Have you searched the database?

HELEN
Not yet. It's on my "to do" list. But such distinctive markings generally indicate a connection to a larger collective or group.

BIG FOOT
If they belong to a society of some sort...

HELEN
Then someone will definitely have noticed that they're missing.

EXT HIGHWAY

[A van is traveling down the highway.]

CABAL MAN 2
Are they pissed at being locked up, or are we getting close?

CABAL MAN 1
Oh, they're here all right. We're bringing them home.

INT SANCTUARY HALLWAY

WILL
Am I happy? Well...I'd definitely say that I'm more stimulated here than in my old job.

MEG (on phone)
Wherever "here" is. You won't even tell me where you're working.

WILL
I told you, the people who run this clinic are totally into privacy. I'm bound by all these confidentiality agreements they made me sign.

MEG
At least tell me the kind of work you're doing. I mean, is it more forensics? Or clinical? Or research-based?

WILL
It's... You know, it's a little bit of everything, really....you know, cutting-edge stuff.

ABNORMAL 1
Hold that elevator! What's up, new guy? I wanna eat your face.

MEG
What? Who's that?

WILL
It's a patient. Patients.

MEG
No, this is great, Will. I mean I don't know where you're working, or what kind of work you're doing, aside from "everything." You're never at your apartment. It's like you just dropped off the map.

WILL
Well, I'm just putting in a lot of hours at the clinic, trying to get up to speed. You know how it is. Anyway, I just, I wanted to call and make sure you were okay.

MEG
Well, whatever it is you are doing...you sound good.

WILL
Well, thanks, I mean, it's no picnic, believe me, but...you know, half the time I wonder if I made the right decision, but...I am sleeping better...ironically.

MEG
Will, You're seeing someone, aren't you?

WILL
What? No, Meg, come on.

MEG
Forget it. It's none of my business. Look, I appreciate the call. Good luck with your new job.

WILL
No, hey wait. Crap.

ABNORMAL 1
Women, can't live with 'em...but you can eat them.

EXT HIGH RISE ROOF

ASHLEY (on phone)
All good, Mom. The city is now minus one ugly, poodle-eating chameleon guy.

HELEN
Are you hurt?

ASHLEY
No, not a scratch.

HELEN
I'll redo your bandages when you get home. But before you do, I need you to look into something for me. We found these rings on the three women from the crypt.

[Helen sends Ashley the picture via the phone.]

ASHLEY
Pretty.

HELEN
I've traced it back to an ancient cult known as Cabalis Nocturnum, a secret society founded in roughly 700 AD. I'm still collating data, but from what I can tell, they were collectors of ancient beings of power.

ASHLEY
Well, they had crappy taste in bling, that's for sure.

HELEN
I have reason to believe that this cabal might still be operating, and I need to know if they are a threat they could pose. See what Squid has to say about the markings, then I want you home.

ASHLEY
You got a bad feeling about this?

HELEN
Off the charts.

ASHLEY
Okay, I'm on it. Love you.

HELEN
Love you too.

INT SANCTUARY HALLWAY BY WINDOW

WILL
What's the matter? You can't sleep?

DANU
Dr. Zimmerman, I know Dr. Magnus asked we stay in our quarters, but the views from your windows...they are so captivating, I could not resist.

WILL
What do you feel when you look out there?

DANU
I am...curious...and afraid.

WILL
Afraid of what?

DANU
When I sleep at night, all I see are dead faces...haunting me...asking me why. You want us to remember who we are. Well, perhaps there is a good reason that we forgot.

INT SANCTUARY HELEN’S OFFICE

WILL
I saw your light was on; you mind if I...

HELEN
No, of course. You're up late.

WILL
So are you. You keeping watch over the ranch?

HELEN
I rarely sleep unless my patients do too. How is Danu?

WILL
She's feeling a lot of irrational fear, low self-esteem, raw emotion. I've seen it before in kidnapping victims held for long periods of time. They tend to forget they have value and just start seeing themselves as property.

HELEN
That assessment may be far more accurate than you realize.

WILL
How do you mean?

HELEN
Have you ever heard of the Morrigan?

WILL
The Morrigan? No, but, then again, I haven't been able to memorize that monster manual you gave me yet.

HELEN
They're part of an ancient legend dating back to medieval times; three women with supernatural powers whose sole purpose was to destroy men.

WILL
So I see we're back to the 1,200-year-old bath products theory.

HELEN
The Morrigan first appeared during the reign of King Arthur. Now, according to myth, when the Morrigan appeared on the battlefield, Arthur's enemies simply began dropping dead. Their souls drained of life. Entire armies were wiped out en masse.

WILL
Do you honestly believe that they're witches? From the Middle Ages?

HELEN
What history would have defined as a witch could have simply been someone with abnormal powers.

WILL
Yeah, but they don't have any you said so yourself when you checked them out.

HELEN
None that we've yet detected. Each of them was wearing one of these. Now, this is the mark of an ancient cabal of collectors who sought and exploited abnormals for their own personal gain and apparently guarded their possessions fiercely.

WILL
So, why would this cabal hold the sisters prisoner if they don't have any powers?

HELEN
Another reason why I'm not sleeping.

INT SANCTUARY MEDICAL ROOM

CAIRD
They're not nightmares. That field...all the dead...

TATHA
We were actually there that night.

DANU
It's more than that. We were the reason.

[The sisters leave their room, Will notices his coffee cup shaking]

INT SANCTUARY CELL LEVEL

WILL
Easy, Steve. Easy.

[The sisters form a circle and are elevated in the section of the sanctuary housing the abnormals]

WILL
Ladies...I'm pretty sure we have rules about... floating and stuff. What say you just come down and we talk about this?

[Electrical sparks start blasting from equipment, Will is knocked to the ground. The sisters fall from floating above. Helen has fired a weapon at the sisters and they fall to the ground]

HELEN
That's quite enough of that.

WILL
I had everything under control.

[Will passes out]

INT SANCTUARY MEDICAL ROOM

HENRY
You know how when stuff blows up and I say "Man this is gonna cost you," and you say, "Henry, stop being so dramatic"?

HELEN
Henry

HENRY
This is gonna cost you.

HELEN
What was affected?

HENRY
Well, the central lab, mostly. Diagnostics, MRI systems are gonzo and I think our Internet is down.

HELEN
What about security protocols?

HENRY
Well, redundancies kicked in, so nothing mean and ugly got free, which is good, but our perimeter alarm systems are totally fried, which is bad.

HELEN
Focus on external defenses. Leave the lab for later.

HENRY
Why, are we expecting more trouble? Yeah, no, that was a stupid question. I'm outside.

WILL
Witches from the Middle Ages, okay, I'm almost there. But assuming their physical forms could somehow be preserved...again, how is it possible that they can speak like us?

HELEN
I'm assuming that each of them is a teleaesthetic, enabling them to quickly learn our vernacular of English.

WILL
Psychic powers, mind reading, well, now we know what this cabal wanted them for.

HELEN
Yeah, for all the good it's done us. Hold still.

WILL
Hey, you didn't know what they could do.

HELEN
I should have, the moment I connected them with the cabal. Performed more invasive scans, psychotropic drug therapy...

WILL
You're running a medical facility, not Guantanamo Bay, cut yourself some slack.

HELEN
You don't understand; assuming the cabal are after them, and we'd be fools not to, the amount of kinetic energy that they released could hardly go unnoticed. We're all in imminent danger. They cannot remain here.

WILL
And what does that mean?

HELEN
It means that if the legend of the Morrigan is even slightly true, they could conceivably swipe out hundreds, even thousands of lives, given the chance.

WILL
We're not talking about a bunch of velociraptors here. Before their memories came back, they were calm, rational women and even when they did let loose with their powers, they didn't kill me. They just...melted my brain a little bit.

HELEN
And destroyed half my facility.

WILL
Well, they've been held prisoner for hundreds of years; they had a right to be pissed. It doesn't mean we can't reason with them.

HELEN
All three will remain under sedation, at least for the time being.

WILL
How long is that? Forever? How does that make us any different than the cabal who imprisoned them in the first place?

INT SANCTUARY CELL

DANU
Dr. Magnus was right, we should never have been woken up.

WILL
You can't stay asleep forever, Danu. You deserve to be free.

DANU
Our purpose is not to be free. Our purpose is to bring death to the enemies of the cabal.

WILL
And you think we're the enemy?

DANU
You took us from our home, away from our protectors.

WILL
You were held prisoner in a crypt. What kind of a home is that?

DANU
If our masters deem it so, then it is so.

WILL
No. That's what they want you to think. They want you to believe that they're your protectors, but they're not. They're using your powers for their own good.

DANU
They gave us life, they gave us our powers.

WILL
Who says you weren't born with these gifts. That this cabal simply found you and forced you to kill for them? You asked me how you could all suffer from the same disorder, this dissociation between
what's real and imagined. It's because somebody planted those thoughts in your heads. And the sooner you realize those thoughts aren't real, then you'll remember who you truly are.

DANU
A thousand men...

WILL
Danu.

DANU
A thousand men marched on Badon Hill that morning. All were dead before nightfall, all without the touch of either sword or spear. And now that we are free, more will die. That is our purpose, Will.

WILL
Until now, because you didn't think you had a choice. But you do.

DANU
How can we ever be free after all that we've done?

EXT COLLAPSED BRIDGE

[Ashley rides up on her motorcycle to end of a bridge and meets with an Abnormal.]

ASHLEY
Squid!

SQUID
Did you bring 'em?

ASHLEY
Yep. Yummy snacks. Get 'em while they're... alive.

SQUID
It's about time.

ASHLEY
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, you said you have information on the cabal for me.

SQUID
You and your mother...you really don't like to attract normal, run-of-the-mill enemies, do you? Now, searching the cabal really stirred up the people in my network, got 'em buzzing like insects.

ASHLEY
Dude, most of the people in your network are insects.

SQUID
That's real nice, Ash.

ASHLEY
What did you find out?

SQUID
That they've been playing the same capture and study game for a hell of a lot more years than your mother and you.

ASHLEY
You'd be surprised. Go on.

SQUID
Intel has it their mandate...

ASHLEY
Was to capture creatures with strange powers, I know. We got three of their assets on ice. What are they up to now?

SQUID
Everything.

ASHLEY
Come again?

SQUID
Well, the cabal supposedly died out in the 19th century, but they didn't. They just went underground. They started infiltrating businesses, medical and scientific research companies, banks, biotech firms...military think tanks..all under their control.

ASHLEY
Holy crap.

SQUID
Yeah, I mean, these guys are one James Bond film away from global domination.

ASHELY
So stealing their property...

SQUID
No, no, no. Would not go over well. Word has it they're on the move with upright bloodhounds with big teeth and claws.

ASHLEY
Keepers...how many?

SQUID
Enough to create a real mess. I mean, whatever it is you took from them, they're coming to take it back. You mind?

ASHLEY
No, no. Bon appetit. Go ahead, go crazy, go nuts.

SQUID
Oh, thank you.

EXT SANCTUARY

[Henry is outside by the perimeter fence and sees Keepers scaling the Sanctuary wall.]

HENRY
Well, that is not good.

INT SANCTUARY HALLWAY

HELEN
As long as they're conscious, they are a threat. As long as they're here, they are a threat.

WILL
Danu's psychological state is so fragile right now, any more trauma, any more amnesia, she may never be this self-aware again. I can get through to her. I just... need more time.

HELEN
Time is not something we have in abuncance, Will

WILL
Listen to me. Listen to me. She has been brainwashed to think this cabal is all-powerful. I mean, come on!

[Helen answers cell phone]

HELEN
Ashley

ASHLEY
We've got trouble incoming. I'll be home as soon as I can, but it's a much bigger...

[Keepers attack]

ASHLEY
Mom? Mom! Dammit.

EXT SANCTUARY

[Henry watches keepers storming the sanctuary from outside.]

HENRY [on walkie]
Come in, Magnus. So, nasty creatures with bad dental work have reached the outer perimeters. I'd recommend a level-5 internal lockdown.

INT SANCTUARY HALLWAY

[Helen and Will are running down hallway with the Keepers not far behind.]

WILL
Magnus...

[Helen activates security measure to bring doors down, locking off sections of the sanctuary.]

WILL
That works.

HELEN
We need to get the Morrigan out of here immediately.

WILL
Agreed. Any ideas?

HELEN
Near the SHU, there's an escape tunnel with an exit leading to the river and a safe house just outside the city. There's a map programmed into this. Take this.

WILL
What are you gonna do?

HELEN
You wanted time? I'm going to buy you some.

[Helen goes down the hall, encounters Keepers and starts fighting. Big Foot arrives and joins in the fight.]

HELEN
Where the hell have you been?

BIG FOOT
We need weapons.

HELEN
We need Ashley.

[Helen and Big Foot keep fighting the Keepers, leading them away.]

EXT SANCTUARY

[Ashely arrives on her motorcycle, tries to enter through the gate, but the electronic lock but it’s locked down.]

ASHLEY
Crap.

INT SANCTUARY SHU CELL

WILL
Danu, we're getting you outta here.

DANU
They've come for us.

WILL
That doesn't mean you have to go with them.

DANU
They'll never stop looking for us. We must go with them.

WILL
Do you really believe that you deserve to live in a crypt? Because if you do, I won't stop you.

DANU
You would free us?

WILL
Yes. We have to go right now.

INT SANCTUARY LOWER LEVEL HALLWAYS

HELEN (to Big Foot)
I want you to stay and defend the habitats at all costs. If we fall, initiate level-9 lockdown protocol and seal yourself inside.

[Big Foot moves to protest.]

HELEN
Please. Do as I say.

[Helen and Big Foot split up.]

EXT SANCTUARY

[Shots are fired from underwater, Ashely rises from the water guns in both hands.]

INT SANCTUARY SHU

[The sisters are running down a down hallway with Will.]

TATHA
Where are we going?

WILL
Away from here. Go, go, go! Take this. It's a map. Follow the purple line.

DANU
Will, I...

WILL
Go!

INT SANCTUARY

[Ashley runs through a room as she talks into the walkie.]

ASHLEY
Mom, I'm home!

HELEN (Speaks into a radio)
Good. Grab what weapons you can and meet us in the catacombs.
Will's headed to the river gate with the Morrigan; the Keepers are following. We'll make our stand there. Henry?

HENRY
Hello.

HELEN
You heard the plan?

HENRY
Weapons, catacombs, check. I'll see you in five.

[Henry’s weapon misfires and he is captured by the Cabal.]

HENRY
Damn it.

CABAL MAN 2
Drop it. Come on. Keep 'em coming.

(Henry disarms himself)

HENRY
These aren't mine.

CABAL MAN 2
Just put 'em on the ground.

INT SANCTUARY

[Ashley meets up with Will.]

ASHLEY
Shoot 'em!

WILL
I can't!

[Ashley fights the keepers hand to hand and then grabs Will’s arm with the gun and fires his gun at remaining keepers.]

WILL
That never gets old.

ASHELY
You left the safety on.

WILL
You know, I'm gonna play to my strengths. You...you shoot people.

ASHLEY
Okay. Follow me.

[Ashley and Will meet up with Helen in the catacombs.]

ASHLEY
Mom! Are you okay?

HELEN
I'm fine. Did you get them out?

WILL
I think, if they can read Google maps; they should be on their way.

HELEN
Where the hell is Henry?

HENRY
Here.

[Henry is entering with the Cabal.]

HELEN
This is a private medical facility. You are trespassing on my property.

CABAL MAN 1
Trespassing? You have stolen what is ours. The Morrigan belong to us. Hand them over now or we tear this place apart.

HELEN
I don't know what you're talking about.

CABAL MAN 1
My Keepers are keyed to find them, no matter where they go.

HELEN
Your Keepers are dead all over my house. Do you have any more?

CABAL MAN 1
Last chance. No more games.

HELEN
Ashley?

ASHLEY
It'll get messy, but just say the word.

CABAL MAN 1
Take their weapons.

[The Cabal are threw to the ground by invisible force. Danu, Caird, and Tatha enter.]

DANU
Stop. There will be no more killing. We will go quietly. But we ask that you leave these people unharmed.

CABAL MAN 1
You don't make demands. You do as we say.

DANU
They did not take us out of greed, but out of charity. We ask you leave them unharmed.

HELEN
It seems that a taste of freedom has changed their demeanor.

CABAL MAN 1
We take back what's ours, you and I have no problem.

HELEN
These women are under my protection; they're not leaving with you or anyone else, for that matter.

CABAL MAN 1
Then we have a problem.

WILL
Danu, please, stay with us. We can protect all of you.

DANU
If we stay, none of you will ever know peace.

CAIRD
You have shown us a path, a truth we have never seen before.

TATHA
And we are grateful, for all that you have done.

WILL
No. No, you can't go, not now.

DANU
Our freedom must be earned. In our own way. We know who we are now.

CABAL MAN 1
Put them in separate trucks. I'd be careful what you do next; the people I work for aren't the forgiving type.

HELEN
Neither am I. Tell them this is far from over. Now, get off my property.

[The Cabal leave laughing.]

WILL
You think we've lost them?

HELEN
You tell me.

WILL
I think I needed more time.

HELEN
I think you've done more good than you realize. We gave them the choice to be free. What they do next is up to them.
