KALI PART TWO

Written by: Damian Kindler
Directed by: Martin Wood

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY HALLWAY

[Helen is on gurney giving Will CPR. Kate is beside them with Ravi close behind]

RAVI
I'm putting his blood sample into the system now!

HELEN
Come on!

KATE
Come on, Will!

[Will regains consciousness and thrashes about]

KATE
It's going to be okay.

RAVI
Normal cardiac tach.

HELEN
Help me hold him! Will, it's Helen! Can you hear me?

WILL
Kali... She's out there!

[Helen hops off gurney and runs beside it]

HELEN
God, what the hell did they do to you?

WILL [IN HINDI]
Let me go!

HELEN
He's in shock.

RAVI
Dr. Magnus...

[Ravi hands Helen a slip of paper]

HELEN
Oh, my God.

KATE
What is it?

RAVI
His organs are going into systematic failure.

HELEN
His system's been flooded with toxic antibodies. Turn him!

KATE
What? He's been poisoned?

HELEN
No, the makri, it must have been removed by force. It would have released these toxins.

KATE
But I thought the hosts can't survive without it.

HELEN
They can't! Will!

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY INFIRMARY

[Helen is checking on Will who is still unconscious not restless as before. Kate enters the room]

KATE
Hey... God, he looks terrible.

HELEN
Unfortunately the makri's absence from his nervous system is causing a hypersensitive immune response. I've stabilized him for now, reduced the fevers, prevented more seizures. We're running tests. I know of a few treatments that could slow his decline but we simply don't know enough about the makri or its effect on his physiology.

KATE
Any sign of Bertha?

HELEN
All our resources are being diverted to the search but it'll take time. She could be thousands of miles away by now.

[Helen's voice wavers slightly on the last sentence]

KATE
Hey, don't beat yourself up about it. You did what you had to do.

[Helen smiles at Kate]

HELEN
I wish it were that simple. The truth is, I broke the rules that I myself set into place. I knew it would come back and haunt me sooner or later.

KATE
No, doc, there is a psychic link to a parasite and an ancient cult. Abnormals all over the world are acting crazy. I would say that your hunch about Bertha being connected to the eco-system is on the money.

HELEN
She could destroy millions of lives!

KATE
And by killing her, she could destroy millions of lives. So what kind of choice is that!

[Helen nods]

KATE
Look, it happened... So we improvise, we fix it. What else can I do?

HELEN
Find out if Henry's made it to the lead search ship. Patch him through when he's ready.

KATE
Done.

[Kate leaves and Helen looks upon Will and sighs]

INT SANCTUARY LEAD SHIP

[Henry is on video link with Helen and Kate]

HENRY
Bertha's magnetic burst definitely caused a spike in weirdness. I've adjusted our navigation systems to compensate. Also, Declan's reporting more incidents of abnormals appearing in public stirring things up.

HELEN
Yes, I've been getting messages from heads of sanctuaries all over the world. Things are only getting worse.

HENRY
Hey, doc, listen, about Bertha. I'm really sorry I wasn't there to help.

HELEN
You were in the air, Henry. There's nothing you could've done.

HENRY
Yeah...

KATE
Okay, so we lost round one. What's our next move?

HELEN
We need to re-establish contact with Bertha's tracking device.

HENRY
Yeah, bad guys have got her under some sort of a jamming cloak. None of my scans are picking anything up.

HELEN
Who the hell could've done this?

KATE
Someone with major connections in the abnormal world.

HELEN
It's far more than that. This is someone who has put together pieces of information that are thousands of years old... the cult of Kali, the makri, its connection to Bertha.

KATE
Who everybody believed was dead.

HENRY
Yeah, you know this whole cult thing, I mean that's got to be like biblical old, huh?

HELEN
Older in fact; there are legends of abnormals who were movers of earth, heralds of the great floods, the whisperers who could talk to all creatures. All these predate even the earliest Egyptian dynasties. Someone studied this as though it were all fact not myth and now they have control of the most dangerous abnormal on Earth. I want to know who we're dealing with and where they've taken her. Get us back in the game, Henry.

HENRY
Yeah.

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

[Asian man is studying his laptop as Forsythe meditates. Rheka sits on a couch in silence watching Forsythe]

ASIAN MAN
We're almost in position, Mr. Forsythe.

[Bertha continues walking across the ocean]

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY INFIRMARY

[Helen has returned to watch over Will]

WILL'S HALLUCINATION

[Will is resting comfortably when he hears Kali's voice]

KALI
Durga... Durga?

[Will sits up suddenly]

WILL
Kali?

WILL [Speaks Hindi]

[Will gets off the bed and starts walking. Kali is running away from him in the hallway]

KALI [Speaks Hindi]

[Will chases after her]

WILL
Kali?

KALI
Durga, find me.

WILL
Kali?

KALI
Come to me.

[Will suddenly stops and grabs his side in pain]

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY INFIRMARY

[Will regains consciousness and clutches at his side and thrashes about in pain]

HELEN
Ravi, I need two milligrams lorazepam! Hold him still, or he'll lose the IV!

[Helen administer the drug into his IV as Ravi holds him still]

WILL
Help me! Help me find her!

HELEN
Will, talk to me.

WILL
Help me find her... [Speaks Hindi]

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

[Forsythe enters a dream state and sees the same room Will first saw but he can't find Kali]

FORSYTHE
Damn it...

RHEKA
You can't see her, can you?

FORSYTHE
Who?

RHEKA
Kali. You can't see her.

FORSYTHE
[Laughs] The Bhagavad Gita says the herald will see her as a beautiful enchantress when the connection is strong with color so vibrant so as to blind a man.

RHEKA
It does say that.

FORSYTHE
So why am I seeing nothing when I'm connected to Bertha? Come on. I brought you here as my tech support and it's my first time as a herald. I'm not going to get nasty with you...but he might.

[Forsythe indicates the Asian man]

RHEKA
Kali only comes to the mind's eye when the makri wills it so. You are not its chosen host. You will never see her mind inside yours.

FORSYTHE
So I don't get fries with my happy meal, boo hoo.

RHEKA
You're not a herald and you never will be. [Spits]

FORSYTHE
Oh, really? That's funny, because I thought I was the one who, who made her crawl 200 miles across the ocean floor. I'm the one with the critter inside of me. I think Bertha will do whatever I want.

RHEKA
Such as?

FORSYTHE
What do the ancient texts foretell? The great flood will come and sweep away sins; the Earth swallowing up our unclean. Every single holy man has predicted Bertha's awakening since the beginning of time and guess what? They're right. They're right! Bibi... It's the end of days.

EXT MUMBAI

[Kate is walking around the city. She senses someone following her. Arjuna peers around a corner and Kate turns quickly with her gun drawn]

ARJUNA
Don't shoot! Don't shoot!

KATE
Ah... do not do that.

[Kate puts her gun away]

ARJUNA
Do what?

KATE
Follow me like that.

ARJUNA
You're looking for the ones who hurt the white man; the ones who took my bibi.

KATE
You saw them? The, uh...the white guy is pretty sick right now.

ARJUNA
Sick? But he has a makri inside him.

KATE
Not anymore.

ARJUNA
[Sighs] That's very bad.

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY INFIRMARY

[Helen sits by Will's bedside with a computer on her lap when Ravi enters]

RAVI
Dr. Magnus?

[Helen stands and faces Ravi]

HELEN
Have you heard from Henry?

RAVI
Still trying to steal back satellites to pick up Bertha's trail. He's going through every ship in the area at the time she escaped. So far all their stories check out. He's looking for false registries, shell companies...

HELEN
It's taking too long. Bertha's been gone more than 12 hours now. Someone has control of her. Declan's reporting more abnormals worldwide wreaking havoc.

RAVI
Controlling the spin on that many sightings; not easy.

HELEN
And Will, he's speaking more Hindi now than English when he talks. He keeps calling out for Kali.

RAVI
Quite possibly a side effect of having the makri forcibly removed.

KATE
It isn't.

[Kate enters the infirmary with Arjuna]

KATE
This is Arjuna. He says he's a member of the cult. Tell them what you told me.

ARJUNA
Your friend is still connected to Kali.

HELEN
Are you certain?

ARJUNA
If he still sees her, in his dreams, they can speak. Kali's an apsara.

HELEN
A sea spirit.

KATE
Bertha?

ARJUNA
Once the makri chooses its host that bond can't be undone even when the makri is gone.

HELEN
Can he sense this apsara, control it?

ARJUNA
Not without the makri to help him.

HELEN
He's helpless.

ARJUNA
Unless they call her in a rapati sungu.

RAVI
Rapati sungu?

ARJUNA
He must dance for her.

KATE
Dance for her?

ARJUNA
If he dances a song for her, she will hear him. If he dances well she will listen to whatever he says.

HELEN
Are you sure about this?

ARJUNA
Of course, I am to be a host when I am older. I've been training since I was very young.

[The phone rings and Ravi goes to answer it]

RAVI
Infirmary, go ahead.

[Ravi lowers the phone and turns to Helen]

RAVI
You have a visitor.

[Helen leaves the infirmary]

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY MAIN ROOM

[Wexford is sitting in a chair and Helen is standing nearby facing him]

WEXFORD
You took Bertha to the woods to kill her and you never pulled the trigger. The optics on that are...

HELEN
Oh to hell with the optics, Terrance. It was my choice not to kill her. If I thought it would be popular I wouldn't have kept it secret.

WEXFORD
Well, the only problem with lying is getting caught.

[Helen sits on the couch]

HELEN
What are you saying?

WEXFORD
I'm saying that eighty...fifty years ago even, no one would have challenged you on this but things have changed. Helen, I'm sure you did what you thought was best and at the time, it probably was, but now...

HELEN
I couldn't have known about the makri or that someone would have figured out a way to control Bertha remotely.

WEXFORD
And I know you took every precaution but it still happened. Look, this isn't even about credibility. It's becoming about trust. You need to contain this situation quickly.

HELEN
We need to find whoever's controlling Bertha and sever the connection. Once I get her back into containment again, then I...

WEXFORD
Containment, Helen, Bertha is a threat to every living creature on this planet and you want to put her back in her box?

HELEN
This issue is far larger than you could possibly understand. Killing her is a last resort. The other heads of house agree. It would be far too reckless.

WEXFORD
Yes, some feel that way but not all...and Helen, the tides are turning. We've known each other for a long time and I owe you everything... but you need to rethink your stand on this. You're on thinner ice than you realize.

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY HALLWAY

[Helen and Kate are walking down the hallway while Helen talks to Henry on her cell phone]

HENRY
There were about eighteen ships in the vicinity when Bertha was taken. Now, at first blush most of them check out. You got oil tankers, cargo ships, fishing trawlers. No connective tissue between any of them.

HELEN
But you found something.

[Helen and Kate enter the office and Helen connects to a video link with Henry]

HENRY
Yeah. Hi!

[Henry waves and Kate waves back]

HENRY
Yeah, I hacked into the databases of a few Fortune 500 companies and I cross-referenced their boards of directors. You know, those guys make a whole bunch of money for doing pretty much nothing?

KATE
And?

HENRY
And, well, one of the guys sits on the board of every company that had ships in the region where Bertha was hijacked. Here you go. This is Edward Forsythe. Now, he's a big player in the global geo-mining biz, okay. This guy owns half of the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea Oil Project, all right? And he was in Mumbai when all this went down.

HELEN
I've met him before. He approached me at a conference years ago, asked all sorts of questions about abnormals in ancient mythology.

HENRY
Oh, sorry. It's a bit rough in here. So I don't know how he knows what he knows, yet, but he did buy a lot of ancient artifacts from museums over the last few years for like, insane amounts of money.

HELEN
What kind of artifacts?

HENRY
Totems, scrolls, ancient texts; it's all Shroud of Turin, Indiana-Jones stuff. He believes every abnormal can be traced to a certain region of Pangea going back like, millions of years.

KATE
The original super-continent.

HELEN
That's an interesting theory, but there's no proof.

HENRY
So what does a billionaire art collector want with an earthquake monster?

HELEN
Well, controlling Bertha's like having the ultimate nuke. I mean, he could be using her to leverage oil rights anywhere in the world; political blackmail for business contracts. Any coastal city is in jeopardy if he lets her loose.

KATE
No. That's a lot of risk for a little gain. I mean, the guy definitely doesn't need the money.

HELEN
Then what on Earth is he up to?

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

[Forsythe is looking out the window as he talks to Rheka]

FORSYTHE
Do you think they're onto me, Magnus and her crew? Eh, I think they're onto me. Not that it matters. They have no idea what I'm up to. They're probably digging up the auction sale from the Canopic jar of Shtabi from the London museum. They should've bought it from a numbered company. We're never going to be pals, are we?

RHEKA
Ha, you're afraid. You should be.

ASIAN MAN
Sorry about the delay, sir. Bertha's proximity is playing havoc with our navigation.

FORSYTHE
Yeah, well, we were about to start swapping puke stories. What's new?

ASIAN MAN
She's made good progress, sir. She's at the designated coordinates now.

FORSYTHE
So we're ready for phase two? Collateral damage?

ASIAN MAN
We anticipate major seismic activities associated with her actions. Coastal areas will be hit very hard.

FORSYTHE
That's a damn shame. Let's get it started.

ASIAN MAN
Right.

FORSYTHE
Come on, girl, let's go to work.

WILL'S HALLUCINATION

[Will is back in the large room looking around. Kali is in a large octagonal pool/bath]

KALI
Where have you been?

[Will walks toward her]

KALI
Come.

[Will strips and joins her]

KALI
You have been looking for me?

WILL
That depends if this is real or not.

KALI
I am real, Durga, as real as you.

WILL
Why do you call me that? Durga.

KALI
It is your name. Don't tell me you have forgotten mine as well?

WILL
Kali.

KALI
You should have not disappeared like that. Where did you go?

WILL
The thing that connects us was taken from me.

KALI
The makri? And you allowed this?

WILL
I didn't have much of a choice...but the other one that you're connected to is not your herald.

KALI
He calls me.

WILL
No... Kali, you need to stay. Don't listen to him.

KALI
I must go, Durga. I can't stay.

WILL
No... No, wait.

KALI
If you are my true herald, find me.

WILL
How?

KALI
Dance the rapati sungu.

WILL
Dance?

KALI
And you will find me.

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY INFIRMARY

[Will regains consciousness and sits up]

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY HALLWAY

[A medical alarm is beeping. Helen is running down the hallway into the infirmary. She sees Will is gone]

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY MAIN ROOM

[Helen is passing out things to a large group of men. Kate is handing out photographs to the same men]

HELEN
I should have taken more precautions. His state of mind's been deteriorating lately.

RAVI
I've contacted the local authorities, given his description.

HELEN
Oh I'm sure they'll be a big help.

KATE
You'd think a white guy wandering the street screaming about Kali would get noticed.

RAVI
Not really. It's Mumbai.

HELEN
I want all abnormals with psychic and remote-viewing abilities activated as well. If Will's mind is still linked to Bertha there may be a way to track him using unconventional means.

RAVI
On it.

[Wexford enters]

WEXFORD
Helen...

HELEN
Not now, Terrance.

WEXFORD
We need to get on a ship, lead the search for Bertha and end this.

HELEN
The search is ongoing. Finding Will is just as important. His link to Bertha may well be the key.

WEXFORD
I need five minutes.

HELEN
Take over. I'll be right back.

KATE
Got it.

HELEN
Come with me.

EXT MUMBAI

[Kate, Ravi and the men are on the streets questioning the people]

KATE
[Speaking Hindi then speaking English] Are you sure?

[Kate approaches more people]

KATE
Hey... [speaking Hindi] Are you sure?

[Kate holds out the photograph]

KATE
Look at it. [Speaking Hindi] No? Okay.

[Kate moves away]

KATE
Damn it!

[She yells at a young man]

KATE
Hey, buddy. [Speaking Hindi] Thanks for nothing.

[Kate's frustration is showing as she keeps asking people]

KATE
Come on...

[Kate has rejoined Ravi]

KATE
[sighs] Oh, God... These people are really, really unhelpful. No wonder we have no idea where he's gone.

RAVI
You're not really Indian, are you?

KATE
Excuse me? Dude... [in Hindi] I was born here.

RAVI
Yeah, but you didn't grow up here, that's for sure.

KATE
So?

RAVI
So you have no idea how to talk to these people. They want to help us. You're just not asking properly.

KATE
What, am I supposed to offer them money 'cause I have tried that; it doesn't work.

RAVI
Kate, it's entirely inappropriate to offer money to someone in their own home. You need to show politeness, gratitude. Would it kill you to have a cup of tea with them, for God's sake? They don't like you. Stop being rude and they will help us.

KATE
I know all that. It's just that I've never bought into that whole...quiet, subservient Indian girl thing.

RAVI
Man, you have some serious hang-ups about your roots. This is the 21st century. You don't have to be a servant or a maid, you just have to show some respect. You can be likeable, even attractive when you let your guard down. Try that.

KATE
Did you...just make a pass at me?

RAVI
Warming up to it. Not that my parents would approve of you, of course.

KATE
[laughs]

RAVI
I'm joking. They'd love you.

KATE
Really?

RAVI
No.

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY OFFICE

[Helen is sitting on the edge of the desk as Wexford paces]

WEXFORD
I know Will is tied into this but you're only going to dig yourself a bigger hole by taking your eyes off of Bertha.

HELEN
Believe me, this is the right strategy.

WEXFORD
No, it isn't!

HELEN
You are way out of line.

WEXFORD
You need to shift your focus on this right now. Lying about not euthanizing an extinction level abnormal would've gotten any other head of house suspended but because it's you, they're trying to give you the benefit of the doubt.

HELEN
Which they should.WEXFORD
For how long! And now with this Forsythe character, who can control her by remote, what would you say if the shoe were on the other foot?

HELEN
There are extenuating circumstances. We don't know enough yet about her connection to the Earth. You don't destroy something that powerful without having all the facts.

WEXFORD
The fact is, she can destroy half of Europe when she's upset! You've taken us to the brink, Helen. How did you think the network would respond? You taught us to think like this. You said, "question everything". They're giving you 72 hours to contain the situation.

[Helen sighs and nods. A beeping sounds from the computer. Helen goes and activates it and Wexford looks over her shoulder]

HELEN
It's Henry.

HENRY
Doc! Geosynchronous satellites detected major magnetic disturbances about four minutes ago. I'm sending you the data now. Look based on the resonance pattern this has got to be Bertha.

HELEN
Re-direct all search teams to the coordinates immediately.

HENRY
Yeah, we're closing in now and I know your next question...why would Forsythe send Bertha there?

HELEN
Tectonic plates.

HENRY
Because the tecton... yeah... right.

HELEN
It's a convergence point of three major tectonic boundaries in the southern hemisphere... the Indian, African and Arabian plates. Dear God, he's going to set her off.

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

[Forsythe is mediating and the Asian man is monitoring the computer]

ASIAN MAN
No change since the recent burst.

FORSYTHE
Nothing?

ASIAN MAN
No activity, sir. She's just sitting there.

RHEKA
[Laughs] [in Hindi] Some herald you are.

FORSYTHE
[in Hindi] I brought her here. She will do this.

RHEKA
You're not strong enough. You're not worthy of carrying the makri...and Kali knows it.

FORSYTHE
Really? Watch this. Fire the little spider up. Magnetic resonance burst, half power, just to get things started.

[The Asian man gets the device that they used on Will earlier]

ASIAN MAN
Mr. Forsythe...

FORSYTHE
Shut up and do it.

[The Asian man holds the device up to Forsythe's back]

BOTTOM OF INDIAN OCEAN

[Bertha becomes agitated and then her body glows]

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

[The computer signals an alarm]

ASIAN MAN
Seismic readings coming from Bertha's position; she's active, it's starting.

FORSYTHE
Like I said, end of days.

[Rheka looks scared]

BOTTOM OF INDIAN OCEAN

[Bertha sends a pulse down the fault]

EXT MUMBAI

[Will lies unconscious but suddenly wakes]

WILL
No!

INT MUMBAI SANCTUARY

HENRY
I've got your long-range chopper at Shivaji Airport prepped and ready to go; should get you out here within six hours.

HELEN
Good. Is the weapon ready?

HENRY
Yeah, one VLF Bertha stunner ready to go. You get close enough the acoustic bullet should put her back to sleep. Just, the problem is...

HELEN
We have to get close enough.

HENRY
Yeah.

HELEN
All right, I'll get there as soon as I can.

HENRY
Okay, fly safe.

WEXFORD
You're using a long-range acoustic device against Bertha?

HELEN
With a clear shot, we could knock her out. Forsythe can't control an unconscious creature.

WEXFORD
What if it doesn't work? You need an alternative.

HELEN
I'm hoping it won't come to that.

WEXFORD
There's too much at stake, Helen.

HELEN
I agree and if there is absolutely no alternative then I will destroy her.

EXT MUMBAI

KATE
[in Hindi] Ma'am, sorry to trouble you but we are looking for a friend. A white man. He is ill and needs help. Many blessings upon your house for your good will. Thank you.

RAVI
Suddenly such a delicate flower.

KATE
Oh, bite me.

RAVI
It's actually quite breathtaking.

EXT SHIVAJI AIRPORT

[Helen is about to take off in the helicopter and Wexford is leaning in the door. Henry is standing near the helicopter preparing some device]

WEXFORD
We'll monitor you from here! Maintain radio contact!

HELEN
Do nothing unless I order it!

WEXFORD
Of course.

[Henry gets in helicopter]

HENRY
Ready!

EXT MUMBAI

[Will is running and hallucinating. He sees Kali]

WILL
Kali! Kali, what are you doing? No! No, you must stop! No...

[Will sees Bertha and what she is doing]

WILL
Kali! The end...the end of days! The great flood! The great flood is coming!

ABOVE INDIAN OCEAN

HELEN
We're almost at the coordinates. Anything yet?

HENRY
Yeah, reports of seismic activity in the area, low-grade but pretty constant. I'd say we've got to be getting pretty close. I'm just getting some weird mapping data here. Okay, that's just crazy.

HELEN
What is it?

HENRY
I'm cross-checking with our nautical charts. Just hold on. Okay, either we're totally off course or...Doc, I'm reading a chain of islands dead ahead but there's nothing in the charts indicating any land mass just open ocean.

HELEN
That's because it's new.

HENRY
She's not making earthquakes.

HELEN
She's making land!

HELEN [INTO RADIO]
This is Magnus. We have a complication. Are you getting these images?

[Wexford is on the leading Sanctuary vessel monitoring]

WEXFORD
Yes, we are. Sonar indicates tectonic plates are diverging rapidly. We're also detecting a smaller vessel approximately six miles West of your position.

HELEN
What do you want to bet it's Forsythe?

CAPTAIN
This is the captain. We're moving to intercept.

HELEN
Don't! He's got control of Bertha. If we try taking his ship there's no telling what he'll do. That's why he's out here alone, he has the ultimate bodyguard.

WEXFORD
If she keeps building land at this rate...

HELEN
...it'll cause massive destruction to the entire region, I know. We're circling around trying to get a better lock on her position.

WEXFORD
Copy that, standing by.

[Wexford holds his hand over the microphone and speaks to the captain]

WEXFORD
Ready deployment of all depth charges; if she can't finish this, we will.

CAPTAIN
Yes, sir.

EXT MUMBAI

[Ravi is talking to a woman as Kate runs up]

KATE
Ravi!

RAVI
People are saying there's something happening a few streets over.

ABOVE INDIAN OCEAN

HELEN
Henry?

HENRY
I can't get a shot. We didn't anticipate her making islands and they're kind of in the way.

HELEN
Dammit.

HENRY
What do you want me to do, doc?

HELEN
Target Forsythe's ship.

HENRY
Forsythe's ship?

HELEN
If we can't get a shot at Bertha we might be able to use the LRAD to sever his connection to her.

HENRY
Oh, man...

EXT MUMBAI

[Will is yelling and a crowd has gathered around him]

WILL
Kali! Kali, you must stop! The end of days... I must... I must find her. How can I find her? Dance... [Laughs] I can dance!

[The people look at Will as if he is crazy as he starts to dance]

WILL
I can dance! [dances] Kali! [dances] Kali!

[Will dances and in his hallucination he sees the people joining him. Kali appears in the crowd watching him and Will sees her]

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

FORSYTHE
Damn, I'm losing her.

ASIAN MAN
Mr. Forsythe, we're tracking a lone helicopter closing in on our position. Mr. Forsythe...Mr. Forsythe?

FORSYTHE
It's Magnus. Shoot her down.

[A hatch opens on the ship]

ABOVE INDIAN OCEAN

HENRY
Doc! We have a weapons lock on our position! He's got missiles?

HELEN
Of course he does. [missiles fire] Deploying countermeasures. Hang on!

HENRY
[Laughs] Yeah! Nice move, doc!

HELEN
Get ready to fire the weapon!

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

[Forsythe is still mediating to regain control of Kali]

CREWMAN
We have missed the target. 20 seconds to reload.

EXT MUMBAI

[Will walks toward Kali]

KALI
Namaskarr, Durga.

WILL
[Breathless] Namaskarr, Kali.

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

ASIAN MAN
Sir, Bertha's slowing down. Her rate of volcanic activity is decreasing.

FORSYTHE
Come on, stay with me.

ABOVE INDIAN OCEAN

HENRY
I have a shot!

HELEN
Take it!

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

[The pulse from Henry's weapon hits the vessel and everyone collapses]

EXT MUMBAI

RAVI
He was here. People saw him only a few minutes ago.

KATE
I know, I got the same story and something about a...

RAVI
dancing, and apparently, quite well.

KATE
Will dancing? Pull our people back.

RAVI
What?

KATE
The dance, the rapati sungu. He's trying to reach Bertha. Get our people away from him.

RAVI [Speaks Hindi into radio]

EXT MUMBAI

WILL
It worked. You heard me.

KALI
You summoned me.

WILL
Kali... Please, stop what you're doing.

[Ravi and Kate rush into where Will is talking to Kali but stop and watch]

WILL
The makri is telling me that there is danger.

KALI
You said your makri was taken from you.

WILL
I know, but...I can still feel you. What you're doing...

KALI
Is what I am asked to do.

WILL
If you don't stop millions of people will die.

KALI
Then they will die.

WILL
But this herald...he doesn't respect you. He's only using you for his own gain.

KALI
You are different?

WILL
Yes! I respect you. Your power is incredible but killing innocent people is not what you're meant to do.

KALI
I have heard this from other heralds in the past, a request for leniency, for mercy.

WILL
People are stronger now. If you hurt them, they'll hurt you back.

KALI
I only wish to be left alone.

ABOVE INDIAN OCEAN

HELEN
What's Bertha doing now?

HENRY
Scans indicate... She's inactive! I think it worked!

WEXFORD
Magnus, did you hit the target?

HELEN
She's quiet.

WEXFORD
But still conscious?

HELEN
Yes. We should be able to guide her back to her containment area. I'm heading back to the ship. We'll regroup for the next phase.

WEXFORD
Understood.

INT LEAD SANCTUARY VESSEL

[Wexford takes off his radio]

WEXFORD
Captain... Deploy all depth charges to Bertha's position. Target her with everything we have. Right now.

CAPTAIN
Yes, sir. Ready all ordnance. All charges, maximum depth.

CREW MEMBERAVI
All charges max depth. Aye, sir.

WEXFORD
And cut off all Magnus' radio communications with the other ships.

EXT MUMBAI

KALI
Why was I asked to make land?

WILL
Oh, I don't know but you don't have to do what he says. Please...

KALI
You danced well for me, Durga.

WILL
[Laughing] Well, I...I didn't have much of a choice. I had to get your attention, didn't I?

ABOVE INDIAN OCEAN

[Helen has approached the ship in the helicopter]

HELEN
No! Depth charges? Terrance, what the hell are you doing?

[Helen gets feedback]

HELEN
Damn it!

BOTTOM OF INDIAN OCEAN

[The depth charges explode around Bertha hurting her]

EXT MUMBAI

[Kali suddenly clutches at her stomach and collapses]

WILL
What? What is it?

KALI
You said you would leave me alone!

WILL
What happened?

KALI
You betrayed me!

[Kali's eyes have gone black and she looks at Will in anger. Will collapses in pain]

KATE
Will! Will!

[Ravi and Kate rush to Will]

INT SANCTUARY LEAD VESSEL

[Helen opens the hatch and enters in anger]

HELEN
What the hell are you playing at? She was calm!

WEXFORD
We had a window of opportunity. It had to be done.

HELEN
Captain, please escort Mr. Wexford to the brig pending my orders.

CAPTAIN
With all respect, ma'am, I can't. I received a coded message on the secure network frequency. Mr. Wexford...

WEXFORD
...by unanimous consent you are hereby relieved of your command of the Sanctuary network, effective immediately.

HENRY
Dude, you cannot be serious.

WEXFORD
Don't interfere... dude. I'm in charge of operations now. You're remanded to custody pending further disciplinary action.

HELEN
You had this planned all along.

WEXFORD
My orders were to take over if you failed and by letting Bertha live yet once again, you most certainly have. I'm sorry, Helen. You gave me no choice.

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

[Forsythe regains consciousness]

INT LEAD SANCTUARY VESSEL

HELEN
You have no idea what you've done.

WEXFORD
I saved lives. I did what you refused to do.

[An alarm sounds throughout the ship]

HELEN
No, Terrance, this is what you've done!

[Helen exits the bridge and looks out over the ocean]

INDIAN OCEAN, INT RESEARCH VESSEL ANTARDIS

[Forsythe has moved to the deck of his vessel and is looking out over the ocean]

FORSYTHE
[Chuckling]: Oh... Oh, she's mad.

ON NEWLY MADE ISLAND

[Bertha stands on top and lowers her body to the ground. A large tidal wave builds up extending outward from the island in all directions]
