One: At the police station, John and Bo are trying to figure out
what happened to Natalie. They discover that she talked to Eve.
Scene Two: At the airport, the scene continues from where it left
off in the previous episode. Haver has tricked Natalie into believing
Cristin is alive, as she is about to board the plane to Vegas
to see him, Haver appears pretending to be an airport security
guard. Haver is holding onto her, pressing a gun to her ribs,
preventing her from escaping.
So good to see you, Natalie.
NATALIE: Let go of me!
STEPHEN: I need to talk to you. If you don't
agree, you're going to suffer and awful lot of
pain, so please--
then his cell phone rings, he and Natalie look down towards his
Ah, that would be (looking at Natalie) John calling his mother --
I have her cell phone.
NATALIE: (Confused) How.... how did you--
STEPHEN: Shh.... shhhh (puts the gun close to his
chin).... he's just figuring out that something's wrong. Very good!
Good boy, Johnny!
NATALIE: (Frantic, begging) Listen to me! Listen,
I have got to get on this plane!
STEPHEN: No, no, Natalie, Natalie,
you need to listen to me, if you and John want to stay alive!
You need to play along, right now! It's all
up to you!
looks at him confused.
Scene Three: The scene at the airport continues, Haver pushes
Natalie over towards one of the chairs, and shoves her down onto
one of them. Natalie continues to beg to let her on the plane,
not realizing he has set her up.
You don't understand, I have to get to Nevada,
my husband, I just found out he's alive. Please!
STEPHEN: I don't think (frowning)
NATALIE: But he didn't do anything to you and I
have to see him! I have to get
STEPHEN: Not when John needs you!
NATALIE: (Confused, frowns) Jo.... John doesn't
STEPHEN: He needs you! He's pining
away, he's killed the thing he loves once. He doesn't
want to do it again. So, let him help you save you!
grabs her and takes out a syringe, and sticks it in her, drugging
her. As he talks to her he is very soothing and calm.
(Grimacing in pain) Aaahhh! Oohh! Uh.... oh.... (whimpers) now....
let me go!
STEPHEN: It's okay....
NATALIE: (Cont.) Let me go!
STEPHEN: (Cont.) It's all right.
gasps, the syringe is still inside her.
(Cont.) Relax! It will all be over soon.
continues to whimper.
(Cont.) It will all be over soon.
Four: Still at the airport, Natalie is drowsy from whatever he
gave her. Haver puts her onto a wheelchair.
Natalie, you made this too easy. Needing your husband's
miraculous return from the dead so badly. (Caressing
her hair) Shame! Shame!
NATALIE: (Effected by the drugs, smiling) It's
a miracle. I got a call from John's mother.
STEPHEN: (Trying to get her to realize he set her
up) No, Ah.... (slightly frustrated) John's mother.... (takes out
Eve's cell to show her, and points at it) from this
phone. From (points at it a couple more times to get her to understand)
John's mother's phone!
NATALIE: (Drugged up) She said that Cristian was....
STEPHEN: (Finishes her sentence trying to get her
to understand) To call John, yeesss! Yes!
looks, the realization is seen on her face ) Oh, (shaking her head
STEPHEN: (Almost supportively) It's okay, go ahead.
You're home.... you're there.... you're almost there.
NATALIE: (Frowns, whimpers) E.... Cr.... Cristian's
not really alive!
STEPHEN: (Almost sympathetically, shakes his head)
whimpers and begins to cry, but is suffering from the effects
of the drug he gave her.
(Cont., shakes his head again) No.
Five: At the police station, John is getting apprehensive because
he has not been able to get in touch with his mother, and it is
not like her not to keep in touch. Meanwhile, he and Bo are also
concerned about Natalie. Just then John's cell rings, he notices
it is from his mother's number and thinks she is calling.
(Excited) Hey, Mom!
STEPHEN: (In his creepy voice) Noo, sorry! Care
to guess again?
STEPHEN: Yeess! Your mother was
with me. That's why I have her phone.
JOHN: (Sighing, but not wanting to
show emotion so Haver wins) Where is she?
STEPHEN: She's a lovely woman,
John. Lovely! But she's (he gives John a clue) in over her head.
JOHN: (Slightly frantic) Where is
she, Haver, and where's Natalie?
STEPHEN: (Looking down at an unconscious
Natalie) She's right her with me, at the airport.
looks over towards Bo.
(Cont.) She's getting ready to meet her dead husband.
You care to join us for one final bon voyage?
flips shut the cell.
Back in Bo's office, John tells Bo that Natalie's at the airport.
Bo asks about his mother; John tells Bo that Haver said she was
alive, and he tells Bo the clue Haver gave him, about her being
"in over her head." Bo tells them they should split
up, he will go look for Eve and for John to go to the airport
to try and save Natalie. Bo then tells an officer to get back-up
at the airport because Haver is there.
Still at the airport, Haver puts a handcuff on Natalie and the
other end to the arm rest of the wheel chair. He then puts a blanket
over her lap, covering the fact she is handcuffed -- making it
look like he is escorting a patient. He leans up next to her to
to talk to her without being.
Ha, I.... want to thank you for making this.... fun,
Natalie! Now, are you read to take a little trip?
furtively looks around, just moving his eyes, and then begins
to wheel her away.
Scene Six: A short while later, at the airport, John arrives at
the check-in counter. He asks the check-in person if she has seen
Natalie. The woman tells him that he just missed her, she tells
John that Natalie was in a hurry to go to Vegas. He wonders if
she made it onto the plane. She tells him she will check to see,
just then his cell rings.
is Stephen -- of course -- he is in the lobby of the hotel where
John is staying. He is at the desk and is petting the stuffed
beaver which is on the reception desk counter, he no longer is
wearing the security guard uniform.
John, (continues to pet the beaver and looks at it) it's time to
JOHN: Ha.... What?
STEPHEN: Natalie's here, at your
place. Just like five years ago. We're waiting for you.
JOHN: (In a somewhat pleading, not threatening,
tune) Don't hurt her! I'm on my way.
ends the connection, and walks off.
Scene Seven: Bo and other police men are on Pier 52, he figured
the clue "in over her head" referred to water; Bo also
made the connection to the pier where Haver set up the fake meeting
with Jessica. Bo and the police search around, and see nothing
at first, but using his flashlight Bo notices something out in
the water. Handing the falselight to a cop and telling him to
aim the beam to the specific area, Bo then jumps into the water.
Scene Eight: At the Angel Square Motel, John's hotel, John, cautiously
enters the lobby of the dive hotel, and motions for the SWAT back-up
team to follow him.
Haver is sitting at the piano, without a care
in the world, and is playing Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet. He does not turn, and continues to tinker away on the piano. John
comes up behind him, aiming his gun to Haver's head; the SWAT
guys are in full armor and have their automatic weapons pointed
at him. John is a few inches away now, and Haver stops playing.
He then pulls out a control device.
Touch me, and Natalie dies!
Nine: Back at Pier 52, Bo has pulled an unconscious Eve from the
water, and is giving her CPR. He tells her to "come on"
that her sons want to see her. Finally she coughs and comes to.
She asks where Natalie is, and more frantically where her son
is. He assures her that everything will be fine.
Scene Ten: Back that the hotel, Haver holds up a remote control
device, his fingers on it to use it if John does not do as he
says. John remains next to Stephen, but the SWAT guys move out
of the way.
(Talking to the SWAT team) Hold your fire! What have you got there,
STEPHEN: This? (Looks at it) This is the
end.... for you, Natalie,
(fondling it) perhaps even for me!
JOHN: So what is it?
STEPHEN: It's a simple remote control device. It
controls the firing mechanism.... of a vest of explosives that....
Natalie is wearing at this moment.
is tied to John's bed. She *is* wearing a vest which has several
charges in it., and is sobbing silently in abject terror.
