[Scene opens in the lab in Sanctuary with Danu and her sisters suspended high in the air while the twirl about]

WILL
I'm pretty sure we have rules about floating and stuff.

[A wind is blowing through the lab and a computer near Will explodes]

WILL
Whoa, whoa! What say you just come down and we talk about this?

{The monitors high above all start to explode and Will is knocked to the ground]
[The glass on the containment habitats start to crack. Emergency shields (looks like concrete slabs) slam down in front of the habitats]
[Bigfoot runs into the lab but he and Will appear to be in great pain]
[Equipment continues to explode or shoot out sparks]
[Will and Bigfoot collapse to the ground in pain]
[The sisters are hit with a bright blue light that crackles like lightening, they scream as they fall to the ground]
[Helen is seen lowering a gun resembling an oversized shotgun]

HELEN
That's quite enough of that.

WILL
I had everything under control

[Will collapses into unconsciousness]


[Cut to Sanctuary title sequence]


[Henry is entering the lab where Helen has Bigfoot up on a gurney while she tends to him]
[Will is nearby standing at a worktable holding a compress to his head. Henry joins Will at the table]

HENRY
Witches huh? It's been a while since we had to clean up from some of those. Hey, you must be the new guy. Henry Foss, weapons, tech support, phone guy, you name it, but I either build it or fix it, hopefully not in that order.

WILL
Will Zimmerman

HENRY
Yeah, I heard about you, well not much actually but I'm sure you're up for the task, more than the last guy anyway. Look at this! See that? I'm telling you, women plus technology equals mess

WILL
Hey ah, don't take this the wrong way but are you, you know?

HENRY
[barks] Nah, I'm just kidding. I am a normal, boring homo sapien just like yourself. My great, great grandfather was Magnus' original weapon smith back in London [whispers] It's all about nepotism dude.

HELEN
Henry, is my lab operational?

HENRY
Not yet

HELEN
Then I suggest you stop talking and go and fix it

HENRY
FYI around here, humans are second class citizens

HELEN
Go!

HENRY
Especially men

[Henry moves back to a console to fix it. Bigfoot jumps down off the gurney and follows him]

HELEN
[To Will] Right, your turn


[Cut to a slow pan of three darkened containment habitats where the three sisters lay upon gurneys unconscious]
[Helen and Will are near in the lab where it is Will's turn sitting up on the gurney being attended to]

HELEN
Based on the supernatural forces at work here, I'd say you're lucky to be alive

WILL
Yeah I got nailed by three witches, great story for my next medical conference

HELEN
Is your bravado meant to be charming?

WILL
Isn't it?

HELEN
I find no permanent damage as a result of your injuries. As I said, lucky.

WILL
So what did they do?

HELEN
From what I can gather our guests unleashed powerful psychic energy on a massive scale. If left unchecked the toll would have been quite substantial

WILL
Psychic energy as in they can read minds?

HELEN
I'm guessing that's how Danu was able to quickly learn our vernacular of English and instantly pass that knowledge on to her siblings

WILL
OK, I saw them floating in the air. I watched them destroy the lab with their minds, I guess but as for them being The Morrigan? There's no way.

HELEN
The markings on the ring. Memories of ancient battles. I'm entertaining the possibility

WILL
Or they could just be three scared, lost, delusional women, albeit with some freaky powers, not famous witches from 1200 years ago. [sighs] but that's not what you want to hear is it?

HELEN
I beg your pardon?

WILL
We looked in that crypt for... ?

HELEN
Elixirs

WILL
Right, ones that could help you with your condition. Instead we found three people in coffins. Three people who are now claiming to be even older than you by a long shot

HELEN
I see. So I'm imposing my personal agenda on the situation? Hoping that these three women can somehow help me find a cure for my longevity

WILL
That's understandable, if they were in fact 1200 years old they may hold the key to help

HELEN
You can't possibly understand. Life without end is not a gift, it's a curse. It means loneliness, isolation. It means being less human. Now if you can somehow prove that these three women are nothing more than misunderstood abnormals believe me I will be the first to applaud your efforts but if they are indeed who I suspect then you more than anyone are in mortal danger

WILL
because they hate men

HELEN
The Morrigan were created for one purpose only. That is why you and my manservant were so affected

WILL
Well we better hope that I am right

[Cut to a darkened kitchen]
[Will enters and goes to a cupboard not noticing Ashley siting at the table]

ASHLEY
Hey

WILL
Oh! You scared the crap out of me

ASHLEY
Because of my unbearable hotness?

WILL
God, you're a mess. Here, let me help you. So how is the shopping list going?

[Will takes some stuff from an open first aid kit and starts cleaning up a wound on Ashley's knee]

ASHLEY
Having the time of my life, did I miss anything?

WILL
Yeah, witches

ASHLEY
Cool

[Ashley lowers her leg and stands up holding on to the table for balance]

WILL
You might want your Mom to take a look at that

ASHLEY
Later

WILL
Hey listen. I know you're all about keeping up your mojo and not sharing things, but I promise you, you are going to be in a lot less pain both physically and emotionally if you just talk about what you are going through, it's all I'm saying, alright?

[Will puts his hand on Ashley's shoulder and she reaches up and grabs his hand by the thumb, stepping in close to Will]

[Ashley does her best here to psych out Will]

ASHLEY
You ever look at a ghoul? A really nasty one, right in the eye before you send it packing? You see one of two things. You see fear, it knows it's dead meat and that's kind of sad but others, the really bad ones, they never stop wanting to take you down right up until the moment you pull the trigger, and those kills, they're the sweetest. Sometimes when I nail something that mean and terrible, when I watch it die, I feel... well, it's hard to explain but trust me it's a thousand times more cathartic than lying on a couch crying about how your life sucks, Doctor!

[Ashley pushes away from Will and leaves]

WILL
Ow

[Cut to outside scene of Sanctuary, panning down from the roof past the gargoyles]
[Cut to the lab area and the containment habitats where the three sisters stand at the glass talking to Will]

DANU
I can only say how sorry I am that you were the ones who found us. We should never have been disturbed.

WILL
Why are you sorry?

DANU
You were kind to us, never passed judgement on our actions

WILL
You mean your memories of killing those men? I hate to tell you this but memory is probably the most untrustworthy thing our minds have to offer

DANU
You shouldn't do this

WILL
Do you want me to believe that you're evil witches from the Middle Ages? Danu before your so called memories returned you and your sisters were kind, reasonable people. You said please and thank you, so forgive me if I fail to believe that

[Will stops in pain and raises his hand to his head, he collapses to the ground]

DANU
I remember who I am, who we are, what we've done. You just refuse to accept it. Battles were lost and won because of our presence. We were the bringers of pestilence that destroyed men's souls. My power when I act alone is but a tiny shard compared to when we three are as one. A thousand men marched on Baden Hill that morning,

[Flashback to an ancient battlefield where soldiers lie dead on the ground, the sisters standing together amongst them]

DANU
all were dead before nightfall, all without the touch of neither sword nor spear and now that we are free, more will die. That is our purpose. When shall we meet again? In thunder, lightening or in rain. When the hurly burly's done When the Battle is lost and won.

[Will cries out in pain and blood runs from his nose as he loses consciousness]

DANU
I told you, I remember who I am now.


[Cut to Will's office where he is lying on the couch, Helen enters]

HELEN
So that's what the couch is for

WILL
OK, you win, they're witches from the Middle Ages. What do we do with them?

HELEN
Keep them secure, study them, understand their power and help them if we can

WILL
Look I realise I don't have a lot of experience dealing with witches but I'm not sure I have the time or the talent to turn them into productive members of society

HELEN
Yes, well our work does have it's limitations

WILL
You know what bugs me is that before I jogged their memories they seemed normal, well adjusted, not homicidal, life sucking sorceresses who killed a thousand men at a place called Baden Hill

HELEN
Baden Hill?

WILL
Yeah, what about it?

HELEN
Wexford mentioned that it's the site of the final battle that handed Arthur control of Britain

WILL
So the thousand men

HELEN
would have been Saxons not Britons

WILL
Wait, wait. You told me that The Morrigan were created to destroy Arthur, not help him defeat his enemies

HELEN
What if they had no choice?

[Helen quickly leaves the room followed by Will]


[Cut to the library where Helen is passing books down to Will. They take the books to the table and sit down]

HELEN
Of course, it makes sense; she would never have done that

WILL
Who wouldn't have done what?

HELEN
What do we know about Morgan Le Fay?

WILL
Uh

HELEN
She was an evil sorceress who was Arthur's enemy. Now, ask yourself who would have written that?

WILL
Men?

HELEN
Men. Exactly. This is revisionist history. What if The Morrigan were not created to wreak havoc, but rather to restore balance to the world? It follows what other revisionist scholars have already uncovered through ancient history; patriarchal monarchies that were actually run by women for example

WILL
Whoa, whoa before you get all DaVinci Code on me, how do you know Morgan Le Fay wasn't just simply evil?

HELEN
I don't, but I do know that throughout history feminine energy never seeks to try to dominate but rather tries to restore harmony to the world, to make it whole. Now Arthur wanted to control all of Britain, what if Morgan was simply trying to stop his rush to power? Here it is. These are Arthur's battles in his campaign to rule Britain

WILL
It looks like he lost more than half of them. How does a guy become king of England with this kind of win loss record?


[Cut to Henry in the lab, repairing some equipment. Behind him are the containment habitats with the sisters in them]

DANU
Henry

[Henry looks like he is in pain]

HENRY
Ow

DANU
That's better

HENRY
God, please look I'm just an employee. Ah

[Henry grabs his head in pain]


[Cut back to the library, where lightening flashes through the high windows]

HELEN
Prior to Baden Hill, Arthur's army suffered many defeats but with very few casualties. Most of his men simply lost their will to fight and abandoned their posts

WILL
but then something changed

HELEN
At Baden Hill. A massive defeat was visited upon the Saxons by Arthur's forces, now legend says that most died but without any marks on them.

WILL
The witches changed sides?

HELEN
My guess is that Merlin somehow brainwashed these women. He recognised them as Morgan's greatest weapon and tried to and a way to control them

WILL
OK, so Morgan Le Fay creates witches to do good. Then Merlin captures them and uses them to hand Britain to Arthur?

HELEN
and then locks them away, keeping them alive in case they're needed in the future

WILL
and the ghouls

HELEN
are an incorruptible army created by Merlin to ensure that The Morrigan would never be free again

WILL
Well no offence to Merlin but he didn't do a very good job I mean if we can

[Lightening flashes as the windows high above explode inwards]

HELEN
Move!

[The Keepers of the Dead appear and jump down into the library]


[Cut to Will and Helen running along a hallway]

HELEN
I should have predicted this! Merlin's army is reclaiming their prize

WILL
Yeah, it would have been nice to have seen that coming

[Cut to outside Sanctuary and the Keepers of the Dead are crawling up the walls as more pour onto the Sanctuary grounds]

[Cut to Sanctuary end title sequence]
