date Friday, February 20th, 2004)
one: Viki's office, the university, Jessica drops by to tell her
mother about Haver. She stands by him, but Viki tells her to be
careful, if the police suspect him there may be a reason. Jessica
seems brainwashed by Haver and continues to believe he is being
Congratulations, Rae, you made it through another day among the
living! (Pulling her up by the arm) Upsy-daisy (removes the gag
from her mouth).
Scene Two: In Bo's office, John thinks Stephen Haver is not only
the Music Box Killer, but the Love Child Killer and the White
Rose Killer. They both worry about Rae. An officer brings them
evidence from Haver's house. John then plays a video tape of him
during the White Rose murders. He is egging on the killer referring
to him as coward who feels superior when he murders innocent women.
John realizes that his press conference got Haver to react. Bo
goes over a file, it seems as though Madison Kensington, the sixth
victim, had an altercation with Professor Haver in his class and
made a comment about his sexuality. John thinks that may be why
she was a victim; Haver paid her back for her insults.
Scene Three: In her prison, Rae is tied up and gagged, lying in
the middle of the floor; the door opens, Haver enters, and uses
his remote to turn on the lights. She is blinking, as he walks
and bends over her. She whimpers.
RAE: I can't do this much longer, Stephen.
STEPHEN: Oh, nonsense, Rae; nonsense!
You're (rubbing her shoulder) doing marvelously! Your profile of
the serial killer was.... was, ah.... was amusing.
If not exactly original (looking at her, smiling).
RAE: My profile of you was accurate,
and you know it! You're not going to kill me. In
fact, you're right now, you're trying to figure out how to avoid
affected by the accuracy of what she said. He looks around,
not able to reply for a moment. He then gets up and walks around.
You're a laudable colleague, Rae. (Panting, he shuts the door,
then walks back towards her) Laudable, and for that reason, I'd
like you to help me with another profile.
RAE: (Still seated on the floor, looking downward)
STEPHEN: A certain.... federal agent. Agent John
McBain! I want you to tell me about his strengths.... (smiling)
and his weaknesses! So I'll better know how to exploit them!
As he says
the last part John is looking at crime scene photos of his fiancée
lying murdered in bed.
Scene Four: The scene continues. Rae is in the process of analyzing
John McBain. As she does so Stephen paces around the room. She
tells him that McBain is a loner. She talks about how he admired
his father who was a street cop. Haver puts his hand to his
chin, in contemplation. She continues that unlike John, John's
father never received recognition nor promotions. A tear falls
down her cheek as she continues. She says that John harbors
resentment towards his father.
(Coldly, unemotional) Fake! Generic! You can do better!
RAE: Why would I give you ammunition against
STEPHEN: Because you want to live longer!
RAE: (Breaking down) But.... but I'm not going
to! (Sobbing, shaking her head in frustration) Whom am I kidding,
it doesn't matter!
STEPHEN: Is it better to die sooner? Or later?
to stand, rubbing his chin, with a cold, blank look.
(Resigned, yet determined, under her breath) Fine! (Gets up) Fine!
(Walking to him) You want to know about John McBain? He's strong,
driven, brilliant. But he is tortured, he has a dark side. Not
unlike the psychopaths he hunts down. Not unlike
you, Stephen! He's not afraid
to go into your mind! To.... get in there and
see (no longer afraid or weak) the sadistic
sickness that's there! And that's why it's just a matter
of time before he catches you!
STEPHEN: "A matter of time"? (Turning
towards her) Such a simple phrase, (walking around)
conveys so much. Time it takes.... John McBain to (gestures) figure
out who I am.... (putting back his hand to his chin in contemplation)
prove (gestures) it.... (putting it back) hopefully
and to catch me, as you so eloquently put it, (motions with his
hand) why relatively, that could be.... (gestures) all
the time in the world (pointing to himself) for me.(Sighs, then
looks down at the broken music box and picks it up) Or as for
RAE: No! (Panting) Ha.... ha.... ha.... ha....
ha..... ha..... (walking towards him, begging) Stephen, ha.....
ha.... ha...., Stephen, listen to me..... ha..... ha..... ha.....
you said that.... that you would keep me alive
if I could name your next victim, well, I can
I-I.... I know who your next
over at her.
Scene Five: Haver turns the lights back on.
Better work on your poker face, Rae! I can....
STEPHEN: (Cont.) ....that you're bluffing.
RAE: (Cont.) ....no, no, I.... I do know who
your next victim is, Stephen! I do!
STPEHEN: Okay, (smug) I'll play along, (walking
around) I'm thinking of a name that rhymes with--
RAE: Marlena Haver....
a stab at DAYS, Matthew's Jack Deveraux was
killed by that show's "serial killer" Dr. Marlena
Evans]. This stops Haver, this has hit its mark. He no longer
is smug and sure of himself. He stares and says nothing as she
continues *her* mind games.
(Cont.) ....your mother!
turns, and tries to pretend it has not affect him. Rae observes
Who I've been killing, over, and over, and over for years now.
Right! (Bending back his head and letting out a deep sigh) Haaa....
RAE: (Leaning into him) Because you won't forgive
her, isn't that it?You won't forgive her for abandoning you.
STEPHEN: (Looking down at her with a deadly stare)
That's enough Rae!
RAE: No, no....
STEPHEN: It's enough (walking off).
You can't punish her.
STEPHEN: (Walking away to avoid the truth) Huh
RAE: (Cont.) Can you?!
turned, his head bent, and his hand to his chin. She walks towards
(Cont.) That's why you.... (pause) that's why you look.... for
her in all those other women. Women

(Cont.) And then you punish them.
seems as though the truth is hurtful.
(Cont.) It doesn't help, though, does it, Stephen (more rhetorical)?
Because the pain and the anger (pauses) it grows

to stare into the distance, as if she is getting through to
him, and he sees the truth behind his killing and how wrong

twitches as if he is thinking about it.
(Cont.) Please! (Begging) I can! You know I
can! But you have to let me go!
turns to her, his expression changing.
down at her with a deadly stare, it is obvious that he has no
indication of letting her go.
Scene Six: John and Bo go over forensic evidence from Haver's
house. The footprints they found there match the ones at one
of the crime scenes. They also discovered that Haver wears a
device to correct an uneven leg. John talks to Bo about when
he shot the intruder who murdered his fiancée. The angle
of the gun could have hit his leg which further damaged the
leg from the time he escaped the fire at his grandparents' home.
They think that this caused Haver to really have it in for John.
They surmise that the killings now is part of the revenge. They
talk about Troy MacIver, and how the evidence was set up to
frame him, Haver could easily have gotten away with the killings.
However, he continued to taunt them. John remembers that Haver
wrote a series of articles on a special hypnosis technique.
He thinks that Haver may have used that on MacIver when he confessed
in the office.
Scene Seven: Back in Rae's "cell," Rae continues to
try and get to Haver. Haver has a strange, smile expression
on his face.
help you, Stephen, please! I can.
He thinks about
it. Lets out a sigh. Continues to think and finally speaks.
Okay! (Turning to her ) Why not! How about a little role playing.
You, of course, (gestures) will play my mother (putting his hands
on her arm).
RAE: No, no! -I don't want too, please--
STEPHEN: (Leading her) No, no, no, no no!
RAE: (Cont.) ....Stephen. Please!
STEPHEN: (Cont.) No more talking! (Leaning over
her shoulder) No more talking, Rae! No more talking (loosens the
bindings around her arms)!
STEPHEN: Only singing! (Takes her arms) Singing!
My mother loved to sing. (Holding Rae who is
freaking out) She sang all the time! (Look up
with a look of "love") Songs of love.
Songs of peace (putting up his hand in a sign
(Cont.) Songs of (looking at her) protest. There's one (putting
up a finger in gesture) that she loved! Here! (Easing her down)
Down on the floor! Assume the position! (He eases her to a sitting
position) He we go. Cross your legs just let this (then crosses
his legs in a semi-lotus position). (Helping her cross her legs)
Just like this, very good! (Getting in a weird-esque yoga position)
Put your hands out just like this (his eyes closed and hands out
in a weird form of meditation; she reluctantly does it). Take
my hand (he takes hers and intertwines her fingers with his) and
sing, "We shall oooo-ver cooom-uh-mmme!" (He looks out
of it, swaying back and forth).
RAE: (Under her breath) Oh God (Not singing)!
STEPHEN: "We--" Come on, Rae, sing!
I can't hear you!
RAE: (Too upset, trying to sing) "Shall.....
She is trying
to sing, but it is inaudible. She is becoming more and more
freaked out by his psychotic behavior. He is still in a lotus
position, swaying back and forth.
(Still singing) "Now I do beeeliieeeve! We shall...."
(He moves around, still holding her hand) "....over...."
(he leans back) "....this...." (lying back onto her
lap) "....day!" (She holds him) Keep
RAE: (Weak) "Daayyy...."
STEPHEN: (Reclining on her lap, as if reverting
back to his childhood) "Day--aaa---aaay!" (Caressing
her hand, with a ecstatic look) Yes, that's it, keep going!
with him, nearly breaking down. He is completely out of it.
"We shall oooo-ver cooom-uh-mmme. We shall...."
she still sings a line. He looks as though he is resting.
realizing he has stopped. She looks down in terror, realizing
the implications. Haver's eyes are open and he has a a psychotic
expression in his eyes.
up. She throws her hands to her face in abject horror. He sits
up right. Then with a almost normal look looks at her.
Sorry, Rae. Didn't work!
Rae has her
hands together. He then replies to her in a normal, yet chilling
(Cont.) Still hate the bitch.
over and gives her a perverted kiss to the cheek. She is disgusted,
terrified. He clicks the remote and the lights go out.
chillingly) Good night, mother!
Bo and John have gone to question Troy MacIver. Troy is nervous
and agitated. John questions Troy if he remembers Dr. Haver.
He said he does. Then he tells him that Rae already came and
asked him about Haver. Bo asks him if Haver ever gave him anything.
Troy's doctor is there and cannot understand how suddenly Troy
is so upset when he had been so relaxed earlier. Troy reaches
for an object when no one is looking. However, Bo sees him.
A guard takes it away. Troy babbles about needing his medicine.
Inside the object they find drugs. John recognizes them as heavy
hallucinogens. Troy's doctor surmises that Troy has been programmed
to take the drugs. He then gives him truth serum. John begins
to question Troy once the truth serum takes effect. As they
question him we see flash backs to Haver talking to Troy, the
image is distorted.
(Friendly) Hello, Troy, I'm Dr. Stephen Haver I'm here to help
you. We're going to become good friends you and I--
the memory. Troy remembers but has not said anything. John is
seated, his hand to his face, looking annoyed that he is getting
nothing from MacIver. Troy is in a daze from the drugs, and
probably still slightly under Stephen's control.
let's talk about Dr. Haver. What did he do to you.
Rae is dressed in black, like a funeral garb. She appears unconscious
or dead. she is surrounded by white sheets, around her body.
It is like some sacred burial ritual. Some light shines over
part of the "burial," and we see the outline of Haver's
body. He stands over her. He moves around her and pours gasoline
over the sheets.
John McBain (continuing to light the sheets) may be all that you
say he is, but is he invincible? I'm feeling (Bending over her
fixing her collar, touching her cheek) invincible (Touching her
hair) so invincible (getting up) that I've killed you, (continues
to pour out the gasoline) and no on can touch
pouring the gasoline all around her. He steps back. Then lights
No one will ever know!
the match onto the sheets at her feet and all the sheets burst
into flame. We see the flames dance around her feet.
Scene Eight: Back to the prison, Troy is groggy, and John tries
to get information from him. He asks him who he got the passes.
Troy says that the head nurse gave them to him. She was found
dead earlier. Troy then tells John how he had told Stephen Haver
about seeing Gabrielle. Troy says that Stephen told him to go
back to the same bar and keep meeting her. Troy tells him that
Haver told him to keep their friendship a secret. He asks what
else Haver told him. Troy flashes back to Haver who is playing
with some kind of puzzle or game.
brainwashing Troy) He's inside you, making you do things. Colin's
a part of you. (Looks down) You can't escape
(Repeating what Stephen told him) Colin's inside me.
JOHN: Why did you confess to killing Gabrielle?
Who told you to do that?
TROY: Dr. Haver. He's my friend.
JOHN: Do you know where he is now?
TROY: (Disappointed) He doesn't come to visit
out to Bo who is watching and listening in the hall way. Bo
cruses Haver for killing Gabrielle. He now realizes that John
was right Professor Stephen Haver killed them all.
Scene Nine: A door opens, it is Jessica and Antonio's place.
Haver looks around cautiously before entering. He appears to
have a set of keys. Seeing no one there in walks in and shuts
the door. Talking out loud.
(Walking around scanning the place) So careless
of you Jessica.... to misplace your keys. (Stops and looks at
a photo of her) Someone could have made a copy.
The scene skipped to John and Bo talking about Haver
being guilty. John
says that they "just have to find him," realizing
that will not be easy.
The scene returns to Haver exiting the place. He is locking
up as Jessica turns the corner and sees him.
