[Opening scene of a dark and rainy street which then descends below ground past pipeline tunnels and subway tunnels to where Ashley is tied up with Druitt and Alexei is playing on the stairs]

DRUITT
What would you do if you did manage to free yourself? Attack me or go after the boy and hope I didn't interfere?

ASHLEY
Oh definitely do you first [sneers] Dad

DRUITT
Yes, I wouldn't believe either. Such an outlandish not to mention sordid tale

ASHLEY
I know my mother, you're not even close to her type. For starters she likes her men sane! And a lot less talky.

DRUITT
Oh she liked me well enough when she agreed to marry me

ASHLEY
OK well you have me, you have the ghoul. What's next? My butt's getting cold.

DRUITT
Imagine spending every hour of every day. Every penny of your fortune trying to find someone only to discover you were looking in the wrong bloody century. Imagine the frustration, the anger as the search went on a fool's errand. I moved from decade to decade holding on to the one hope that I would finally land in the right time and place and find you Ashley.

ASHLEY
My father is dead

DRUITT
Who told you that? Oh the good Doctor. My God, her gall never ceases to amaze me. Who is she to play nursemaid to every deviant who's lost it's way? Or more to the point to decide that you should never know your own flesh and blood! Who is she to say

HELEN
I'm her mother that's who!

[cut to Sanctuary title sequence]

[Will is crawling through a ceiling crawlspace]

WILL
Yeah, this is why I busted my ass in medical school. To crawl around dirty tunnels chasing mutant psychos. OK keep it together Will, the monsters are down there not up here.

[Bigfoot crawls in with Will and scares him]

WILL
I thought you were going to wait in the car?

BIGFOOT
[growls]


DRUITT
Helen, you look wonderful

HELEN
Stop playing games John. You got what you wanted.

DRUITT
Indeed. A family at last. You played your cards very patiently, hmmm well done. As if that could prevent this moment

ASHLEY
Mom please tell this guy there's a nice padded cell in his future

HELEN
Quiet Ashley. Be reasonable, how could I tell her the truth?

DRUITT
How could you not?

HELEN
You murdered eight innocent women

WILL
[whispers] No! Not yet

ASHLEY
I'm still waiting for the it's a total lie part! Mom! He's not my Dad, right?

HELEN
Please this is neither the time nor the place. Whatever you are going to do, don't!

DRUITT
Actually it is you who is going to do it all Helen. Look what you have made of our daughter, a foul mouthed, wilful, violent child. But at the core? A needy little girl who just misses her Dad. And this your beloved creatures, the damned souls that you so tirelessly try to save. It is all up to you Helen. Make your choice! What will it be?

ASHLEY
[To Alexei] Don't

[Alexei extends his tentacle towards Ashley. Helen shoots Alexei and Druitt warps to Helen]

DRUITT
This is entertaining

[Will drops down from the crawlspace]

HELEN
I know you are quick John but if memory serves, bullets are quicker

DRUITT
Memory is a fickle companion

[Druitt grabs Helen and disarms her]

WILL
No! No! Let me. Alexei wait

HELEN
What now John? I die like one of your whores?

DRUITT
Tell me what choice I have?

[Helen drops a syringe down from her sleeve into her hand]

Alexei: You want to hurt me!

WILL
No, I don't I want to help you. Other people might be afraid of you but I'm not

Alexei: Why?

WILL
Because there's no such thing as monsters

[Bigfoot runs in, Druitt warps and materialises with his hand through Bigfoots side. Bigfoot drops to the ground but then Druitt staggers and looks down to his thigh where the syringe is sticking out]

HELEN
Forgive me John

DRUITT
You can't control her forever Helen

HELEN
Stop you'll never survive

[Druitt warps away. Helen and Ashley go to help Bigfoot]


[Will walks past the containment area in Sanctuary]

WILL
Easy guys

[Will approaches Bigfoot asleep on a table with an IV attached to his arm]

WILL
You actually exist. I was, I am scared of you . I know it's just the idea of you, the concept. You see I saw this movie when I was a kid and I had an over active imagination and ... never mind. Just get better.

BIGFOOT
Will, you used to live over in Barren County

WILL
Yeah, when I was a kid, East hills

BIGFOOT
1123 Seneca Boulevarde. Before I met the Doctor I was angry. I enjoyed scaring people, kids. I knew that movie was playing that night. I'm sorry

WILL
It was you?

BIGFOOT
Mmmhmm I know it is late in coming but no hard feelings?

[Will shakes Bigfoot's hand]


[Will and Ashley enter the Sanctuary liibrary]

WILL
You sure you're OK?

ASHLEY
I was not at my best back there

WILL
Considering the situation

ASHLEY
Yeah well if you're thinking about working here you should really see this.

[Ashley starts a hologram video player]

BARNEY
Will you stop fiddling with that thing. Let's just get this over with. Come on make yourself useful with something huh? Go get me a cream soda. What was I talking about? New guy if you're watching this that means she's dragged you into this whole little circus of her's huh? Well I was once young like you a year out of medical school 1932 or something. I was finishing night shift at the hospital, walking home she came out of the shadows. This woman she hands me this business card after that I was just caught in her web. You know we were studying the abnormals and we got to be close Oh yeah, a special bond Helen and I. She had ideas about things.

ASHLEY
He rambles a bit here

[fast forwards the video]

BARNEY
I begged her, I pleaded with her to stop. I didn't think I could take it anymore. You know different things from the fridge

ASHLEY
No, no

[fast forwards the video]

BARNEY
been given an opportunity to learn things. Things that no one else can ever know and there will be risks, there will be sacrifices. At best the chances of like death is maiming it could be in the cards. But what is that in the face of knowing the truth. The truth about human kind. Oh, Hey. ?? guy ?? guy I just lost another fingernail. What I gotta do? Where are you? Oh. Don't sneak up on me like that. Well anyway good luck new guy. Just keep your head up, keep your eyes open and stay away from anything, anything radioactive. I don't care how cute or fluffy it is. You tell Helen, you tell Helen that... tell her that Barney says hello. She'll know what that means. I'll get someone to husk down my corns

WILL
Nice

[Will enters Helen's study]

HELEN
Leaving Dr Zimmerman?

WILL
After watching Barney TV can you blame me? Look I just wanted to say thank you, it was a lot of fun, as traumatic as it was

HELEN
You're turning down my offer

WILL
Yeah, I already have a job

HELEN
At that zoo they laughingly call a hospital. Cold hearted bureaucrats and uneducated sloths.

WILL
Hey don't forget about the fee jello

HELEN
Ah. So why linger? Off you go.

WILL
Is Alexei...

HELEN
I've secured a place for him at a special school I know. He'll be fine

WILL
And what about Ashley? That's some heavy news about her Dad.

HELEN
I will deal with my daughter have no fear. Was there something else?

WILL
Yeah, yeah, it's you and Druitt. Something about it still doesn't make sense to me

HELEN
Pray tell

WILL
Barney 1932? And the way you talk those Sherlock Holmes expressions. Who says Pray tell? And Druitt was the same way.

HELEN
The use of the Queens English is a lost art

WILL
No, no, no. Let's just forget about the very disturbing fact that you have a basement full of monsters and your butler shouldn't exist. Let's talk about you and this guy, OK? You claim that your first patient was Montague John Druitt a man who also happens to be Scotland Yards prime suspect in the Ripper killings in 1888

HELEN
I told you he could bend dimensional space, why not time as well?

WILL
So he's the actual Ripper? Come on, you can't know that, not for sure

HELEN
Indeed I can Dr Zimmerman. I was there.

WILL
So you can travel through time too?

HELEN
I cannot

WILL
But you said that Ashley was your flesh and blood so

HELEN
She is. I kept the embryo frozen for over a century till I could bear the loneliness no longer. I brought it to term believing John was gone for good. I under estimated his determination

WILL
How is any of this possible?

HELEN
When you treat beings with extraordinary powers sometimes the rewards are well unexpected

WILL
So that means that you

HELEN
I am 157 years old

WILL
[laughs]

HELEN
Aren't you leaving? Your gratuitous jello awaits

WILL
You know I hoped that at least you would be normal

HELEN
Sorry to disappoint

WILL
Can you promise me that I'm not going to end up like Barney?

HELEN
I can't do that. But I can promise you the adventure of many, many lifetimes. Shall we begin?
