[Ashley follows Alexei down the train tunnel. Druitt leans down to Alexei from a station platform, a train comes and Ashley has to dodge it. When the train is gone Alexei and Druitt are gone]

[An apartment building. Cut to inside and someone is in the shower]

WILL
Hello?

[Someone flushes a toilet and then Will gets hit with really hot water]

WILL
Okay, who the hell just used my can?

[A big hairy, clawed hand opens the shower curtain. Will yells and faints]

[Cut to opening sequence]

[A car pulls up to the Sanctuary gates someone enters a security code and the gates open and they drive through]

[Cut to the train station, a station guard comes down the steps]

GUARD
Hey, station's closed pal. Buddy what the hell's going on? You know what? I don't want to know. You stay put.

[calls on his radio]

GUARD
Control 4 this is Rail Check 2. I've got a pickup on south bound platform...

[Druitt stabs the guard with his sword stick]

DRUITT
Privacy, if you please. We're just getting to know each other

[cut to Will in bed unconscious, he startles awake]

WILL
Oh, I'm so sick of that.

[looks around and doesn't recognise where he is]

WILL
WILL my friend, you are on fire tonight.

[He gets out of bed and goes to look at some old pictures across the room]

HELEN
Good. You're awake

WILL
Considering I'm looking at a photo of you and Joe Louis, ah, I don't think so

HELEN
I apologise for my boldness this evening

WILL
Woman from earlier. Creepy house. Whacked photos. Probably working through some childhood stuff. Bed wetting issues, night fears. Huh, still, this is good stuff even for me.

[Will gets back in bed obviously thinking he's still dreaming]

HELEN
Dr Zimmerman I assure you I am real, as is this place and everything in it.

WILL
No. See, that's impossible. Because if this place is real and I did pass out here then that means that ......

[Bigfoot enters room with a tea tray]

WILL
Oh God.

[Will faints]

[Cut to train guard tied up by chains]

DRUITT
I love the dark. It's such a wonderful feeling letting the blackness envelope you. Hide you, protect you from harm. I know all too well what it is like to be different. To have others hate me, fear me. The way he fears you . Fulfil your desires, to your hearts content, hmmm. On one condition, I need your help to find an old friend.

[Alexei attacks the man who screams]

[Cut to Will waking up in bed again]

HELEN
My manservant seems to have a profound impact on you

WILL
Yeah, if you call 15 years of therapy down the drain profound.

HELEN
My patients and I are unused to visitors. I should have given you some warning I suppose

WILL
That thing is your patient?

HELEN
Former patient actually. After I removed more than a few bullets from his body he refused to leave. So I gave him a position on my staff but I must say he brews tea as poorly as a short order cook

WILL
He flushed me out of my shower

HELEN
Did he use your toilet? Oh that is so annoying I'll be sure to have a word with him.

WILL
No, no it's not the toilet flushing that bothers me. It's the kidnapping and the fact that he's a...

HELEN
Well he can't help who he is

WILL
OK. You know what? This has been great but I'm overdue for a round of heavy drinking and some tranquillisers. So, if I could just have my clothes, please.

HELEN
As you wish, but outside that door are creatures that make my butler seem like a house cat by comparison. Sanctuary For All is not an empty motto. Scone?

[Cut to rail tunnel. Two people are walking the tracks with torches (flashlights)]

GUARD 1
Rail Check 2 this is Blue Rider 9, respond. Respond Rail Check 2. Nothing.

GUARD 2
I hate this goddamn sector

GUARD 1
Hey, no one likes working under old city. Too many bad memories. Well if this guy caught an Express he could be up in Gunns Landing for all we know or Sentinel Green

GUARD 2
Checking the switches there on number 4 line near 149th I'm thinking he didn't go far

GUARD 1
Yeah, yeah.

[They see a body on the track]

GUARD 1
I'm thinking you're right

[cut to Sanctuary]

WILL
So you're a doctor of what exactly?

HELEN
Depends on the patient of course

WILL
Of course

HELEN
You spent 8 years of your life studying medicine, for what? So you could practice a profession that has almost nothing to do with the reality of the world around you?

WILL
Whoa! How about a little context with that character assassination?

HELEN
That, I can provide.

HELEN
I specialise in teratology among other things

WILL
I'm sorry, teratology?

HELEN
Combined with healthy doses of cryptozoology and xenobiology as well. When the need arises. Please.

[Will looks at the various inhabitants of Sanctuary]

HELEN
Teratology, from the Greek "teras", meaning hideous creature, deformity, unknown being.

TWO-FACED GUY (pretty face)
New guy. Hey, new guy!

TWO-FACED GUY (ugly face)
New guy... NEW GUY!

HELEN
Stop it! Both of you. I apologize, they're incorrigible.

WILL
None of these things are running around free, right?

HELEN
Don't be ridiculous. Exercise time isn't for another two hours.

[Cut to sitting room]

HELEN
The purpose of this institute is to find and help the unfortunate creatures of this world. And Dr Zimmerman, I believe there is a vital role for you to play here.

WILL
You want me to help you capture monsters?

HELEN
I prefer to call them abnormals. Please. You find my offer amusing?

WILL
Yes

HELEN
Because you're afraid.

WILL
You work with monsters!

HELEN
I work with sentient beings, each worthy of the same respect that humans, even animals, receive automatically. They are the key to the evolution of our race, and yet we revile them, destroy them, and worst of all, pretend they don't even exist. But they are out there Dr Zimmerman. Lost, like children, misunderstood, hunted. Are they really so different from the outcasts you treat every day? You knew Mr Tolson was telling you the truth and in that one moment I saw that you were capable of so much more.

WILL
I believed some of his story. That doesn't make me Jeckyll to your Hyde or whatever the right combo is

HELEN
Open your eyes! Good doctors come and go. But the really great ones have always seen beyond the boundaries of science. Beyond the known. The great ones dare to believe in the unbelievable.

[Cut to crime scene with the body in the tunnel]

HELEN
He must be close

WILL
Who?

HELEN
Our quarry

[Helen & Will enter another tunnel through a metal grate]

WILL
So how'd you know the killer's next victim would be down here and not, you know , up.. uptown

HELEN
I have my sources

WILL
Could you be a little more cryptic please because I was starting to feel in the loop there and we wouldn't want that

HELEN
Our subject is unused to human contact. He would seek refuge in these catacombs if only for the solitude. Plus I have a Police scanner

[Helen stops and picks up a leaflet]

WILL
And how did you know the victim was the work of the subject?

ASHLEY
Because I've been tracking the little dweeb all night. Hi

HELEN
With very little success I'm afraid

ASHLEY
Well that's because someone else was down here. Tall dude, moves faster than me, if that's possible

[Will spots something and moves away]

HELEN
What did he look like?

ASHLEY
Bald, trenchcoat, ah I didn't see much

WILL
Uh, guys! Hey, hey ah, it's OK. It's OK.

[Alexei lashes out and Ashley knocks Will out of the way and goes to shoot Alexei]

HELEN
Stop! We need him alive. We want to help you. Do you understand me?

[Alexei lashes out at Ashley]

WILL
Hey, hey. Ah, over here, over here. Yeah that's it, that's it. OK, easy, a little help here please.

[Helen shoots Alexei with a dart]

WILL
You OK?

ASHLEY
I'm fine

HELEN
Far from it. This chaos was completely avoidable

ASHLEY
Give me a break! I've been avoiding cops, ghouls and God only knows what else in stinky dark tunnels all night. I need food and I need a bath, I don't need a lecture.

WILL
OK, so I'm getting that you two know each other

HELEN
Dr Zimmerman, this is Ashley, my daughter

[Cut to Sanctuary end title]
