[Scene opens in the Sanctuary Infirmary, Helen is sewing up a cut on Ashley's shoulder. Will looks on with an ice pack to his head]

ASHLEY
Mom! Take it easy

HELEN
I believe we have discussed better coordinating our efforts when attempting a capture, have we not?

ASHLEY
Again, we got the ghoul. OK, take a pill!

HELEN
Watch your cheek with me young lady, especially with company present. I apologise for Ashley's unruly behaviour Dr Zimmerman. What she lacks in refinement I assure you, she more than makes up for in skill

WILL
Really

ASHLEY
Hey! I saved your life

HELEN
Hold still

WILL
Yeah, thanks. So I take it you guys do this a lot?

ASHLEY
Oh this is nothing. After our Romania trip last year we had more plasma flowing

HELEN
Ashley, please! I don't like it when you glorify our work

ASHLEY
And our den of werewolves. Me, Mom and some loser Romanian, Lucas Wrangler, were low on silver tips, full moon is on the rise. That! was a party

WILL
Do you mean like werewolf werewolves?

ASHLEY
Mom, seriously, who is this guy?

HELEN
Dr Zimmerman is our guest. Please try to keep that in mind as you blather away. There, my darling, good as new

[Ashley kisses her Mom in thanks]

ASHLEY
Hate to beat and run but gotta be on the eastside in 20. Hot date, with Ernie.
[To Will] Nice to meet you, ah keep the ice going
[To Helen] Don't wait up

[Ashley leaves]

WILL
So she's your daughter? Because there can't be more than like 12 years difference between you two

HELEN
The details are unimportant. Ashley is my flesh and blood and she plays a vital role in my work

WILL
She bags them, you tag them? Oh well, it works for me

[Will picks up a vial of luminous green liquid]

WILL
So, you find this inside one of the victims? It looks like some sort of phosphorous based chemical.

HELEN
Secretions from the boys appendage, contains significant trace amounts of low grade plutonium.

[Will drops the vial on the bed and jumps up]

HELEN
But so tiny an amount is hardly lethal

WILL
Well, yeah, that's more your department, so I'm just going to...

HELEN
True enough. Right now there is an urgent need for your talents doctor

[Cut to opening sequence]

[Cut to Alexei with his shirt off, lying down and restrained]

HELEN
He is by estimation 10 years of age.

[Helen and Will stand on a walkway overlooking the room looking down to where Alexei is restrained. He is reclined in a dentist like chair with his arms fastened to the chair, his tentacle is whiplashing around the room]

HELEN
Considering his family I would say he was brought here by the Eastern European black market. Such imperfect children are often adopted by well meaning immigrant families. Some are blind, others have deformities, mental illness. I'm sure he seemed perfectly normal in his photograph, if they even saw one

WILL
What the hell is that thing?

HELEN
I will only be able to determine his physiological state once we've gained his trust

[Cut to Will and Bigfoot entering the detention room. Alexei still has his tentacle whiplashing around. Bigfoot has a remote control in his hand]

WILL
OK sit him up and release him. Ah, please

[Helen continues to observe from above. Bigfoot uses the remote and the chair raises and the arm locks release]

WILL
OK, we'll be fine. Really.

[Bigfoot leaves and closes the door]

WILL
I'm just going to grab this chair here. Nice and slowly

[Bigfoot enters the walkway above where Helen is]

HELEN
Watch them

[Helen leaves]

[Cut to Helen in the Sanctuary holding pen area, she's working on a computer in the centre of the room with some sort of microscope / analyser and a screen coming down from the retracting apparatus from high on the walls]
[The high screen shows a global search in progress and comes up with a result of Chernobyl Probability Match 98%]
[Helen then relaxes back in her seat and then picks up the Twelfth Night playbill and contemplates it]

[Cut to Victorian England to the play itself with Helen and John Druitt leaving to get in a coach]

DRUITT
Who were those actors? I've seen less wood sailing to Tahiti!

HELEN
[laughs] John, stop it

DRUITT
I'm merely saying Her Majesty was dead on barring that from an indefinite run

HELEN
Truly dreadful wasn't it. You're favourite play too

DRUITT
But for the perfect vision to my left I would have caught up on some much needed sleep

Coach Driver: Where to this evening?

HELEN
A turn through Piccadilly to start please

Coach Driver: Very good Ma'am

DRUITT
And where are you taking me now woman?

HELEN
Where ever I please. I'll not have you home before midnight John Druitt. Not before I've had my way with you

DRUITT
[laughs] Then the night awaits!

HELEN
I take it you're feeling much better?

DRUITT
Ah there is nothing like the attentions of a capable physician to cure the chronically ill

HELEN
You were never ill it was simply

DRUITT
an element of my physiology as yet undiscovered by medicine. You've done so much for me

HELEN
John, I hardly

DRUITT
Let me speak Doctor. I've spent my entire life lost in a void, afraid of who I am, of what I am. If not for you I fear I would have remained lost. Instead I can now see that I'm neither a freak of nature nor a devil. But a man [he kisses Helen's hand] very much in love and someone who wishes to spend the rest of his life repaying his saviour for all she's done. [He takes out a ring in a box and presents it to Helen] I promise to make you happy Helen for all eternity.

[John and Helen kiss and then he places the ring on her finger]

[Cut back to lab and Bigfoot approaches Helen and gently places his hand on her shoulder]

[Cut to the detention cell. Alexei has lashed out at Will and cut a hole through the chair back that Will is holding in front of him]

WILL
Whoa hey! Time out a second OK? Here's the problem, alright, you keep that up that big hairy guy is going to come back in here and believe me it will get ugly. And the bigger problem is that he scares me more than you do.

[Alexei retracts his tentacle]

WILL
OK why aren't you trying to eat my brain anymore? OK I think I'm getting the ground rules here. The less fear I feel, the less you want to snack on my cerebellum? OK [sits down] You have a name?

ALEXEI
Alexei

WILL
Alexei, that's a cool name. I'm Will. I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that you're not from around here.

ALEXEI
I'm from place with no people. A dead city

WILL
You want to tell me how this all started?

ALEXEI
Family adopt me. Bring me home, but they not like me. Not after...

WILL
Yeah, not the kind of reception you were hoping for huh?

ALEXEI
They were afraid. I tried to stop it, but only more fear comes

WILL
So the more fear, the more it comes out, a defence mechanism.

[Cut to Helen in the lab watching Will and Alexei on a large screen high on the wall]

WILL
Well that's perfectly normal whenever you feel scared that's what's going to happen but you don't have to be afraid anymore

HELEN
Magnificent

[Helen returns to her work]

[Cut to an underground area where Ernie, an arms dealer, is opening his van and takes out some rifles]

ERNIE
I know you like the firepower Ash, that's why I ordered these babies, especially for you. Direct from my source in Tel Aviv.

ASHLEY
You take such good care of me Ern, that's why I keep coming back for more.

[Ashley inspects some heavy duty rifles]

ERNIE
So we're kosher here right? I mean I know Henry doesn't appreciate any weapon he doesn't make himself

ASHLEY
Well, Henry's gear is too experimental. I'm a traditionalist

ERNIE
And when it's your ass on the line, Amen. So! What else you need? I've got Kevlar, silver tips, if you're going after vamps I know a brother in Prague who just received a shipment of holy water. Pressurised canisters, 5,000 PSI, launcher included, deal of a lifetime

ASHLEY
Stop it. You're turning me on. How much for both?

ERNIE
Both? Well, for you Ash 6 thou.

ASHLEY
Phffft!

ERNIE
But I tell you what. If we start pooling our resources, do some jobs together. My contacts become your contacts and vice versa, the price goes way south, if you know what I mean

ASHLEY
Come on Ernie. You now my mother has a few issues with the way that you work

ERNIE
So, hate the game not the player

[Ernie is struck in the chest by a large metal spiked ball and collapses]

ERNIE
Oh, that's gonna leave a mark!

[Druitt is behind Ashley and she draws her pistol and starts to turn but he blocks her arm and takes her pistol]

DRUITT
Nasty toy for one so young

[Ashley quickly breaks away and they fight. They break apart]

ASHLEY
You just killed the second best ghoul tracker in five states, not to mention a friend

DRUITT
Clumsy me!

[Ashley attacks Druitt but he parries every strike. They again break apart and Ashley draws a knife]

ASHLEY
Have we met before? A crypt somewhere?

DRUITT
I'm an old family friend

ASHLEY
Oh, no card for your Christmas. Well, next year.

[Ashley strikes out with the knife and they fight again. Eventually John warps behind Ashley and momentarily surprises her into ceasing fighting. He then disarms and immobilises her]

DRUITT
Now young lady I believe it's past your bedtime

[Druitt warps to somewhere else with Ashley]

[Cut back to Ernie, on the ground, who is still alive. He injects something into his neck, with an epi pen, and then pulls the spiked ball out of his bloody chest]

[Cut to Sanctuary and Will is putting Alexei to bed in a nice four poster bed]

WILL
If you need anything during the night, you just ring that bell, alright? I won't be too far away Alexei, I promise

[Alexei grabs Will's arm to stop him leaving]

ASHLEY
Will. You are like the other man I met in tunnel. He treat me well too

WILL
What other man?

[Cut to Helen leaving the lab, the equipment is all put away. Her cell phone rings]

HELEN
State your emergency

ERNIE
Hey doc, it's me. You've got a problem

[Cut to an abandoned underground area. Ashley is tied to a chair and Druitt is giving her some water from a bottle]

DRUITT
Do not bite me

ASHLEY
How did you know I was going to?

DRUITT
I would have done the same

ASHLEY
OK, now you've got my attention and that's quite an achievement considering your bad taste in clothes

DRUITT
[laughs] Oh such manners for a lady!

[Druitt moves to a table where his cane is and extracts the cane sword]

DRUITT
But then look at your mother, she never understood her place in the world either

ASHLEY
Bad enough that you're a teleporting psycho, you're a Republican too!

DRUITT
Well let's just say, I am a strong believer in family values

[Druitt unzips Ashley's jacket with the sword and plays with her locket that has a Sanctuary S on it]

ASHLEY
here's some free advice. Kidnapping me pisses my Mom off more than serving the wrong wine with fish. So I'd start running

DRUITT
Oh, I'm not going anywhere. Why would I? Now that I've finally have what I wanted for so long

ASHLEY
Yeah, what's that?

DRUITT
Why you of course. My daughter

[Cut to Helen and Will upstairs in Sanctuary approaching Alexei's room]

HELEN
Are you quite certain?

WILL
Yeah, Alexei said he could jump instantly from place to place, if you buy that, which you will

HELEN
With a kind of bluish green flash?

WILL
You see.

HELEN
It corroborates an encounter for abduction

[They enter the room to find it empty with a folded note on the pillow]

HELEN
Damn it!

WILL
It doesn't make any sense. Alexei had no reason to run

HELEN
He didn't run, he was taken

WILL
What the hell is this?

HELEN
Directions

WILL
To where? There's no station at 98th Street

HELEN
There used to be before the new city was built. That's where we'll find Alexei. And Ashley

WILL
You know who did this don't you?

[Cut to the rainy streets with a car moving fast and wildly on the roads. Bigfoot is driving with Helen and Will be thrown around in the back]

HELEN
His name is Montague John Druitt. He was my first patient

WILL
Meaning he's not exactly normal?

HELEN
Through certain genetic abnormalities he is able to bend dimensional space at will. Warp from place to place

WILL
In a blue green flash

HELEN
Exactly

WILL
Well I'd say cool if he wasn't, you know, the bad guy

HELEN
Each time he does it, specific portions of his brain are damaged, causing increased dementia, paranoia, rage. I discovered all this too late, his murderous habits were already well under way. I tried to stop him but failed

WILL
Are you sure its him?

HELEN
Twelfth Night, his favourite play

WILL
A5 S1, Act 5 Scene 1?

HELEN
"thus the whirligig of time brings in his revenges". Each of us has our worst fears to confront Dr Zimmerman. John Druitt is mine

[Cut to Sanctuary end title]
