Will enters the medical Lab in full gear and approaches Magnus who is washing up for surgery.
Will: I'm Going to assist
Magnus: It's not necessary
Will: He just kicked the snot out of you let me help!
Helen (Not in the mood to argue): I can handle it go help Henry
Will: You pupils are dilated, look at the tremor in your hands you could have a concussion...
Magnus( Snaps): I am 159 years old you have known me for 3
Will lowers his head slightly knowing she is right about that and backs off slightly
Will: Fair enough, you want to at least tell me who he is?
Magnus sighs has we go in to a flashback of Oxford
Helen V.O: I tolled you how the five of us began at Oxford, working to understand secrets hidden from main stream science.
Has Helen speaks we move through an archway and upwards to a window were Nikola has pulled back the curtain to let some light in to the room. He stares out before returning to the lab tables.
The camera travels through the window and we are now in the lab with the young Five. James is scribbling madly on a board while John is preparing something on one table. On the opposite table Helen is working on one thing while another man (Nigel) works on something else. Nikola has now moved over to Helen's table.
Magnus: Nigel the Source Blood please
We then get our first view of the Invisible Man. Dressed in a tweed suit with reddish brown hair with sharp features. He hands Helen the sample of blood while Nikola watches. Helen takes it and turns to John.
Magnus: John, culture,
John look up at her with a smile, he walks over carefully with his own sample
John: Ready and waiting
James looks up from his notes
James: Remember the protocols, no mistakes
Tesla: Relax James we've all done our homework
Note in flashbacks when Tesla speaks he still carries his Serbian accent
Nigel turns to Tesla with a serious look
Nigel: Please Tesla we're improvising and you know it
Tesla: Well perhaps its to rich for your blood
Nigel: No I'm in mate just to see what happens to you
They grin slightly at each other while Nigel walks off. Even Helen and John can't help but smile a little at this. This is a side of the Five we have not seen before. There are no individuals out with grudges or something to prove, just five friends working on something new. Suddenly the door opens and Adam enters.
He turns to shut the door while the Five look at each other nervously while Helen quickly grabs a bit of cloth and covers the Source Blood sample.
Magnus: For Heaven's sake
Tesla (sighing): I thought I locked the door
Adam: Oh, you did, I was just wondering how the experiment is coming along.
He approaches slightly but the Five have him outnumbered and Nigel and Nikola have moved to block his view of the table.
John: Don't you have somewhere else to be? A lecture...
Adam: Must be very important whatever it is its been keeping you all quite busy the last few weeks
He is flipping through one of their note books only for Tesla to come over and pull it away
Nigel: Oh, I believe Mr Worth has been spying on us
Magnus: I believe you're right, Mr Worth
Adam: Adam please, you can trust me
Helen exchanges looks with Nikola and John. They don't think it a good idea. Adam points dangerously close to the Source Blood sample.
Adam: Secret shipments of plasma sounds really exiting, some kind of a new breakthrough
James and Nigel look nervous has Adam is close for their comfort. He is now examining a vial when John approaches using his height to help intimidate Adam has he pushes him to the door.
Adam: Could be quite useful to you
Adam: Top marks in my anatomy course
The rest of the Five are in front of the table silent. Adam shakes his head knowing he has lost this one and leaves has John shuts the door. Just for good measure he locks it again from the inside. Everyone breathes a sigh of relief.
We are back in the med lab were Helen is working on an unconscious Adam and we pull back to see Will watching with worry. Nikola appears behind him.
Tesla: Homicidal little bastard, he should have come after me first
Will: This how all Oxford class mates treat each other?
Nikola looks at him with a surprised grin
Tesla: How much did she tell you?
Will: Just that the Five was almost the Six
Tesla: Yes well in retrospect there were signs, subtle markers
We enter another flashback starting from Tesla's point of view has he puts together some wire in a device
Tesla V.O.: But we were young and believe it or not even a tad arrogant
The experiment is now back on track with Helen and James looking at the board while john is examining something at the one desk. Nigel and Nikola are working at the second desk.
John: (Regarding Adam) You have to admit he's brilliant
Nigel: And British
They all smile a bit at the joke while Helen turns from the board
Magnus: Dose anyone else notice anything odd about Adam?
Tesla: He just pointed it out he's British
There is a smirk again from all, but James is serious
James: Excitable little chap isn't he
Nigel: Anyone read him monograph on forced tissue regeneration
John: The thing he did with door mice... poor creatures grew two heads
Its obvious that was not a pleasant experience for all involved
Magnus: Very nearly worked though, a daring theory to say the least
Nigel doesn't see it that way
Nigel: I'd lean more towards twisted myself
Tesla: Twisted, daring it doesn't matter, the point is we don't need anyone else the five of us are enough
Helen: I agree, has clever as Adam is our group is fine with out him
The others agree with Helen and Tesla and get back to work
Scene change to the halls of Oxford were Adam is working on an equation he has chalked on the walls. He so absorbed in his work he doesn't notice Helen approach. Helen examines the equation at first with curiosity which quickly turns to shock when she realizes what is.
Magnus: Dear Lord Adam, it looks like the formula for some kind of toxin.
Adam quickly brushes it away.
Adam: Non no just some scribbles well am I in?
