Webisode 6   Credits   Transcript    


[Scene opens looking into Sanctuary through a window, across a hall the doors are open to Dr Gregory Magnus' study where he works at his desk. Helen approaches and knocks before entering]

HELEN
Is it true?

GREGORY
And how was your evening?

HELEN
They cannot do this! It's beyond unfair

GREGORY
Ah, it's already done

HELEN
Ignorant bastards

GREGORY
Language Helen

HELEN
You brought The Royal College out of the Dark Ages. Sanitation reforms, treatments for Smallpox, Cholera. Those were all your incentives

GREGORY
You can't be surprised. They've been trying to rescind my membership for a decade now. It only took this long because they lack imagination. What is it?

[Helen hands her father a letter]

HELEN
Like father, like daughter I suppose

GREGORY
Helen, I'm so sorry

HELEN
I had the highest possible marks in the entrance exam and yet they've rejected me again.

GREGORY
You already know more than the doctors who wrote the exam.

HELEN
I cannot legally practise medicine anywhere without a degree from the London school. There's not a hospital or clinic in Europe that would hire me. This is my third rejection, I can't take the exam again

GREGORY
Because you are a Magnus

HELEN
I do not accept this Father. I will not settle for a life of mediocrity and subjugation, I want more. Teach me.

GREGORY
My private research is unorthodox Helen. It is not to be entered into lightly, nor with anger.

HELEN
You are the most talented medical researcher I have ever known and yet you keep your most important work hidden from the world, from me. If you truly believe that I have potential, Father please, help me achieve it

[Cut to a set of stairs leading down to a heavy door. Helen is descending the stairs holding a lantern while her father waits for her outside the door]

GREGORY
Once you enter this door you are on a path that cannot be reversed.

[Gregory opens the door and Helen enters]

[Opening credits]

[Outside shot of looking down on Sanctuary. Cut to Will's Office where he sits talking to the three rescued women]

TATHA
It's as though this is all a dream and when we wake up everything will be the same as it was before

CAIRD
Why is nothing familiar to us? This building, these clothes, and these rooms are all warm without fire, the light is unchanging with the day

WILL
It's a lot to digest Cairth

CAIRD
I see myself in the mirror and I recognise my face, I know Tatha and Danu but the person I thought I was... you're telling me there is no village, no sickness, the little I can remember is false. How can we all not feel completely lost?

TATHA
Danu has told us that you insist there was no magicks involved, that what we suffer is simply a malady

WILL
It's more of an emotional shield. We found you in a crypt surrounded by monsters, it's normal for the human psyche to put itself in a safe mode

DANU
We want to accept your diagnosis doctor and we are grateful for all you've done

WILL
But you're still not buying it. The clinical term is schizo affective disorder, it's a delusional state stemming from acute post traumatic stress. People have awoken from comas thinking that they were royalty, that they were aliens from another planet even people with super powers.

TATHA
But we are all three suffering from the same disorder, how is that possible?

WILL
Delusional behaviour occurring virally in groups is rare but it's not undocumented, particularly amongst siblings. Look let me put it this way. If you really were 1200 years old then there is no way that I would understand anything that you are saying right now. How do you explain that? There is no logical or physical way that your memories can be real and the sooner that you accept that then the sooner we can make progress

DANU
Because the truth will out eventually

WILL
It always does

[Cut to Helen in the autopsy room with Bigfoot entering bearing a tray of food]

HELEN
Excellent timing, I'm starved

[Bigfoot looks up the overhead monitor. The sound is off and it shows Will talking to the three women in Will's office]

BIGFOOT
They raise my hackles

HELEN
In a good way?

BIGFOOT
You know there is no good way. Progress?

HELEN
Nothing concrete. Base physiology is essentially human The DNA scans indicate significant mutation to key chromosomes likely resulting in increased adrenal production, heightened strength and reflexes as well as this lovely appearance. All in all, be glad you missed it.

BIGFOOT
I am not

HELEN
You were recuperating, we managed

BIGFOOT
You were lucky and I am fine now

HELEN
I'll be the judge of that

BIGFOOT
Yes doctor

HELEN
Now what remains to be determined is whether our friends genetic mutation is accidental in nature or by design

BIGFOOT
You think someone made him?

HELEN
I think, there are a lot of unanswered questions about these creatures including the significance of this. On his right hand, index finger

BIGFOOT
It is old, very old

HELEN
That's what I thought, which is why I'll be needing a ride later tonight

BIGFOOT
Where are we going?

HELEN
To see if your hackles are right

[Cut to an outside view of Sanctuary, it is dark and rainy. Cut to Will's office]

WILL
I want you to concentrate on the sound of my voice. I'm going to count backwards from 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Danu can you hear me?

DANU
Yes

WILL
I want you to go back to the last thing you remember before you woke up here

[Flashback to the Keepers of the Dead]

DANU
The creatures they're too strong

TATHA
we can't escape.

[Flashback to the Keepers of the Dead dragging the women into the crypt screaming]

DANU
Why are they doing this? We've done nothing wrong. They're making us drink something. I can't move, darkness

WILL
I want you to go back further, find a memory of something that happened before the creatures took you

[Flashback to the three women walking amongst the dead on an ancient battlefield]

DANU
Moonlight, it's cold. We're in a field, I can sense the dead Their souls extinguished. Only we remain

[Cut to Ashley with a shotgun in some caves. A near invisible creature flashes past her knocking her down and she shoots at it. Ashley gets up and moves further into the caves. The creature continues to attack Ashley but she eventually kills it by jabbing something into it's head. She pushes the dead body of herself and then gets a note and pen out of her pocket and crosses something off a list]

[Cut to a soldier falling on the battle field and then the three women sleeping all awaken, startled at the same time]

CAIRD
They're not nightmares. That field of the dead

[Flashback to the battlefield and soldiers are falling down dead as the three women walk amongst them]

TATHA
We were actually there that night

DANU
It's more than that, we were the reason

[Cut to Will in his office working and everything starts to shake]

[Cut to a sedan outside a building. Bigfoot is in it laughing as he reads a book, Gone With The Trash]

[Cut to a room full of plants which Helen and another man are entering]

WEXFORD
Doctor your message was very intriguing, you never disappoint

HELEN
I see you've cleaned up since I was here last

WEXFORD
Oh I know it's so austere and uninviting, I deplore it but when one's life is centred around a cruel irony one has to make a few concessions. This way, after you

[Wexford enters a code on a glass doorway and opens the door]

HELEN
Thank you

WEXFORD
Paintings and moisture are mortal enemies; sadly I need both to survive. Now let me look at your precious little bauble and we can get started. Hmmm, oh this is interesting. Wherever did you find it?

HELEN
Scotland, on a mutated human guarding an ancient crypt

WEXFORD
Scotland you say? Curiouser!

HELEN
Ring any bells?

WEXFORD
Plenty of them, just a question of deciding which one to listen to. The design is at least a thousand years old, predating the Norman Conquest I'd wager.

[Wexford searches through wall unit and then goes to a draw]

WEXFORD
Hmmm, I know I've definitely seen something like it before, yes. Ah, ringing bells, ringing bells. Ding dong! And viola! Fifth century tapestry reproduction

[Wexford extract a glass encased old drawing and deposits the picture on a light table so that the both of them can examine it]

HELEN
Now what are they being offered here? Blood of Christ?

WEXFORD
Oh please! Nothing so cliché! No, this is designed as a symbol of the Cabalis Nocturnum, a quaint little sub sect of the Romano British Knights of the early Middle Ages, charged with protecting the world from Dark influences I believe. These warriors likely drank from the chalice as a gesture of loyalty and faith to the cause

HELEN
Now who is the man offering it to them? A priest?

WEXFORD
Bigger, think the most powerful man in Britain at the time. Hint - not King Arthur

HELEN
Merlin

WEXFORD
These knights were probably rejects from Arthur's court desperate to prove themselves worthy. They accepted a hideous task, fighting the dark forces unleashed by Merlin's nemesis, Morgan Le Fay, evil sorceress, avowed enemy of Arthur, all around mean spirited bitch

HELEN
And who are they?

WEXFORD
Those would be The Morrigan, emissaries created by Morgan to wreak havoc against Arthur's armies. The very embodiment of her hellish powers. Legend has it that their very presence on the battlefield would steal the souls of Arthur's soldiers. They've popped up in literature throughout the ages most notably as a trio of hags in MacBeth. You know boil, boil, toil and all that

HELEN
So The Morrigan were witches

WEXFORD
No love, they were THE witches

[Cut to the containment area in the lower levels of Sanctuary. Will runs in with the shaking still going on]

WILL
Easy Steve, easy.

[The three women are suspended in the air in the middle of the room. Hands joined and twirling in a circle as a wind blows]

WILL
Ladies

[Sanctuary end title]
