RESUME FRANCAIS :

Stanford Wedeck et son équipe sont à Washington pour évoquer leur enquête devant le sénat et obtenir les fonds nécessaires pour poursuivre leurs recherches. Wedeck a un atout pour lui : il connait personnellement le Président des États-Unis.

Le FBI a récupéré 18 ans de photos satellites de la Somalie. Ils y découvrent qu'au milieu du désert Somalien, une structure a commencé à se construire en 1990. Une immense tour au milieu de nulle part achevée en 1991, juste avant que les corbeaux de la région ne meurent par dizaines de milliers.

La commission d'enquête est dirigée par une sénatrice qui en veut tout particulièrement à Wedeck et cherche à lui enlever ses fonds. Lorsque l'agent Mark Benford est entendu à la barre, la sénatrice commence à casser son flash : pourquoi ne se souvient-il que de 30 secondes sur les 2 minutes et 17 secondes ?

Janis Hawk rompt avec sa nouvelle petite amie. Cette dernière a effet découvert le contenu du flash de Janis grâce à la mosaïque. Si Janis est enceinte dans 6 mois, ce ne sera pas avec une lesbienne...

Mark Benford avoue à son directeur la raison pour laquelle il n'a qu'une vision parcellaire de son flashforward. Il était bourré...

Après avoir finalement obtenu les fonds, Mark Benford, Demetri Noh et les autres agents du FBI chargés de l'enquête se font attaquer dans un parking souterrain. A l'autre bout du pays, l'agent Janis Hawk se fait tirer dessus dans la rue.

 

RESUME ANGLAIS :

In a Washington, D.C. parking structure, FBI agents Benford, Noh, Vreede and Wedeck pile into a passenger car. Moments later, a black SUV barrels toward them, crashing into their vehicle. A team of assassins exit the SUV, one of them armed with rocket-propelled grenade launcher. A deadly missile streaks toward the car. There’s a massive explosion. Smoke envelops the screen.

We jump back 39 hours to learn that Wedeck and his FBI team are in town to testify before a Senate Intelligence Committee. Mark, Demetri and Vreede are given polygraph tests regarding their flash forwards while Wedeck shoots some hoops with Dave Segovia, aka the President of the United States.

President Segovia and our favorite FBI Deputy Field Director go way back, which is probably why he offers Wedeck the job of Director of Homeland Security. Although the President has not publically revealed the details of his flash forward, we see that it involves a Secret Service agent telling him something terrible has happened.

Wedeck has a volatile past with the head of the inquiry committee, Senator Joyce Clemente. The senator blames Wedeck for a lost chance at the presidency. Opportunity may knock again though, as Clemente claims she saw herself sitting in the Oval Office during her flash. Presently, Clemente seems determined to quash Wedeck’s Mosaic investigation and she wants to hear from the person who spawned it: Agent Mark Benford.

Clemente grills Mark, asking why his vision seems “hazy” and “disjointed.” We know it’s because Mark was drinking. We also know he can’t admit that in front of the entire world. Clemente suggests Mark’s investigative techniques border on voodoo or fraud. This is more than Wedeck can take. He walks out of the hearing in a huff.

Janis scans satellite imagery looking for anything relating to the crow die-off of 1991 and evidence that people in the Ganwar region of Somalia lost consciousness. Satellite shots show 100-foot pylons standing in the middle of nowhere. Sounds like something worth investigating to us, especially since we got a firsthand look at a pylon in the episode titled 137 Sekunden.

Janis goes on a date with Maya, a woman from her Tae Kwon Do class. They end up spending the night together. The next day, Maya gives Janis a present. It’s a slick-looking alarm clock on wheels. It’s a gadget clock that rolls away from you if you hit the snooze button too often. After the gift exchange, Maya admits that she checked out Janis on the Mosaic web site and knows that she will be pregnant. Janis becomes extremely uncomfortable, as she is still trying to digest the whole baby situation. She hastily ends things with Maya.

Wedeck visits the home of a woman named Renee Garrigo, who lives with a young boy. We don’t find out who these two are until Wedeck has a meeting in the White House. He produces a photo of the President with Renee. It appears they had an affair and the boy is Segovia’s illegitimate child. Wedeck helped with the cover up.

Wedeck wants the Prez to call off Clemente before she cuts the funding for his investigation. Otherwise, he’ll go public with the pics. Nothing like a little blackmail between friends, right? Segovia takes the bait and Senator Clemente will no longer be bothering Wedeck. She’ll be too busy filling the no longer vacant office of Vice President of the United States.

Mark and Wedeck have a heated argument about the hearing. Mark finally admits to his boss that he was loaded in his flash. After the blowup, Olivia receives an anonymous text message that reads: Mark was drinking in his Flash Forward. Could it have been Wedeck who sent the text? Perhaps it was Aaron. Olivia had confronted him after overhearing Aaron tell Mark to find an AA meeting in DC. Or maybe it was someone else altogether.

We catch up to the scene that opened the episode. Mark is on the phone with Janis as he and the others step into the car. The black SUV rams them. Mark and the others scramble to escape as the rocket-propelled grenade annihilates their car. The assassins take aim at the car but Mark, Demetri, Vreede and Wedeck emerge from the wreckage with guns blazing. They take out a few of the assassins but others escape. Thankfully, no one on Mark’s team is hurt. At least, no one in D.C.

Back in L.A., the phone call with Mark goes dead for Janis, who is walking home from the market. An armed man springs from the shadows and attacks Janis. All that Tae Kwon Do training has paid off as Janis methodically disarms and disables the gunman. But then a second attacker shoots Janis in the stomach. This doesn’t have the feel of a routine mugging.

Janis manages to draw her own gun in time to shoot the second attacker before he can escape, but she’s gravely injured. As she gasps for air, she recalls her flash. She asks the nurse to tell her about the baby. It’s a girl. Janis is overwhelmed in her flash. But in the here and now, she’s fighting for her life. She lies in the street in a pool of her own blood as that alarm clock on wheels she got as a gift rolls haphazardly alongside her.

1:30 AM
Washington, D.C.


[The episode commences with a picture of the Capitol building at night. Mark is walking next to Wedeck and, Demetri and Vreede walking behind them. There are two conversations occurring. Wedeck is listening and counting money. He has a valet ticket in his hand. They are in a parking garage.]

DEMETRI: Thanks man.

AGENT VREEDE: You're actually a pretty good singer. [fades]

MARK: All things being equal, it wouldn't have been the worst thing in the world if I hadn't…

WEDECK: Forget it. Forget it.

MARK: I just want you to know the details I do remember, I remember clearly.

WEDECK: Fabulous. Look, just keep your mouth shut. You tell anyone else about this, we are D.O.A.

[The four men start walking. Mark lingers behind a bit and takes out his cell phone and makes a call.]

MARK: Hey, just wanted to share some good news with ya. Even though the whole trip's been a bit of a disaster, Wedeck pulled some kind of rabbit. Who knows. Maybe…

[They are getting into a car. Mark is the last person to close the door. Demetri and Vreede are in the back seat while Wedeck is driving and Mark is in the passenger seat. The sound of a speeding vehicle is heard. Tires are screeching as it shifts gears. As the car that Wedeck is driving pulls out of the parking space, a large, black SUV speeds up and hits the car broadside on the passenger's side. The car spins and is pushed back into a parking space. The SUV backs up and the driver and the man sitting behind him exit the SUV. The passenger side also has men that exit. They are all Asian. The passenger has his door partially opened and is using it for cover. He has a pistol aimed at the car. The driver has a grenade launcher and has it aimed at the car. Demetri sees this and pushes Vreede out the door.]

DEMETRI: Get out! Let's go.

MARK: Go! Go!

WEDECK: Let's go!

[The man with the grenade launcher, shoots straight into the car. It explodes. The roof comes flying off. Fire engulfs the car.]

FLASHFORWARD

39 HOURS EARLIER

[It is daytime. The Capitol building, and other government buildings, are set among green grounds. The sky is clear and blue. Sirens are heard in the background. Switch to Mark, Demetri, and Vreede waiting in a dark corridor.]

AGENT VREEDE: Senate hearings I understand. Now what I don't get is them dragging us down here first thing in the morning.

[Mark is fiddling with a coin in his right hand. Demetri is looking at the ground.]

AGENT VREEDE: If you ask me, this is all one big Chinese fire drill.

DEMETRI: Hey!

AGENT VREEDE: Is that inappropriate for the workplace?

DEMETRI: [pats Vreede's shoulder] No, no, It's cool. I know how you old people are.

[Mark, who is standing down the corridor, smiles and continues to fiddle with his coin. A door creaks open and the three men look and a man in a suit with an FBI ID badge exits.]

FBI MAN: Demetri Fordis Noh?

DEMETRI: What you want me for? I didn't see anything. I told you in my affidavit, man.

FBI MAN: Doesn't mean you were telling the truth when you gave it.

[Demetri walks into a room followed by the FBI man. Mark and Vreede say nothing. Mark looks down at the coin he has been playing with. On one side it reads, "7 Years" and on the opposite side it reads, "Keep coming back." It is a coin from Alcoholics Anonymous signifying 7 years of sobriety. He clenches it and the scene switches to Mark inside a room taking a polygraph test. There is a clip around his index and middle fingers. He is tapping in on the table as he answers questions. They are all being interrogated about their flash-forwards.]

MARK: I was alone. I didn't think there was anyone else in the building.

[A navy blue monitor with light blue graph lines is shown. Vreede is now being questioned.]

AGENT VREEDE: I didn't think anyone else was in the building. It was late, 10 P.M.

[The man administering the test is watching Vreede closely. He then glances at the monitor. Switch to Mark answering questions.]

MARK: I was working in my office. I was working late.

[Man watches Mark and the monitor. Switch to Vreede answering questions. As he answers, his answers about his flash-forward are acted out in the background. Vreede in a trench coat, carrying an attaché approaches a door with a code box. He enters a code and sees, "Access Granted." He exits and the date is shown on the code box is April 29, 2010.]

AGENT VREEDE: I was leaving for the night. I was headed out the security exit. I don't know why, maybe 'cause it was late.

POLYGRAPH TESTER: Did you see anyone else during your flash-forward?

AGENT VREEDE: No.

MARK: Yes. I saw two men, both wearing masks, both carrying Kalashnikovs.

[The tester keeps one eye on the monitor as Mark answers the questions.]

POLYGRAPH TESTER: Did you recognize the men?

MARK: I did mention they were wearing masks, right?

[The tester pauses and writes on his notepad. Switch to Mark walking out of the Capitol building. He is making a call using his cell phone.]

MARK: How's it going over there?

[Aaron is outside the garage of the Benford residence. He is working on a light fixture at the far left of the garage doors.]

AARON: How's it going in D.C.?

MARK: Well they don't think I'm a traitor.

AARON: Those lie detectors can be fooled, right?

MARK: [laughs] Seriously, how's it going over there?

AARON: Well, I'm just about figured out what's wrong with your alarm system. And you’re welcome, I fixed that hack repair job you did on your garage door.

MARK: You're a full service sponsor.

AARON: Yeah and Charlie now knows how to drive a stick.

[Aaron continues to work as he chats with Mark. He climbs a ladder to replace the light fixture.]

AARON: Now that you're off the hot seat, when can we expect to see you back?

MARK: Wedeck's testifying on these hearings and I'm gonna help Demetri with document support.

AARON: Sounds exciting.

MARK: I'm the one who started the office on this Mosaic path and I'm feeling a whole lotta pressure to be right about it.

[Olivia walks out of the house and overhears Aaron's conversation with Mark.]

AARON: D.C.'s got AA meetings to, you know. Might not be a bad idea to go and find one.

[Olivia picks up the newspaper, stands up, and takes pause when she hears Aaron mention AA meetings.]

MARK: Well, I'll take it under advisement. In the meantime see if you can get Charlie into a few colleges while I'm gone.

AARON: Go to a meeting.

[Olivia is disturbed by what she hears and goes back into the house. Switch to D.C. where Vreede and Demetri walk the plaza to the Capitol building. Demetri is carrying a lidded box.]

AGENT VREEDE: Very cloak and dagger, just like the movies. [points to box] What’s all that stuff anyway?

DEMETRI: Evidence. Wedeck thinks he needs it for a Senate testimony. He's afraid they're gonna take away our funding in which case, Mosaic is dead in the water.

AGENT VREEDE: You know, I've never seen Wedeck with a stick so far up his ass.

DEMETRI: Yeah he hates D.C.. He used to live here. Apparently left a bad taste in his mouth. If you ask me, he is a dude with something to prove.

[Switch to an indoor basketball court. Wedeck is playing one on one with Dave Segovia. "Can You Find Me Love," by Harrison and the Majestic Kind is playing in the background.]


Heard so much about 'cha talking about you night and day
Said you got something that can make me change my ways
But listen, come on and tell me , tell me could it be
That you go something down there for me

Can you find me love?
I need some love
Can you find me love, love?
Can you find me love?

I was around in Kansas City just about a year ago
You know I was so lonely I had no place to go
Come on, come on tell me tell me could it be
Have you go something down there for me

Can you find me love
I need some love
Can you find me love, love
Can you find me love


[The two men stop playing. Dave Segovia wipes his forehead with a towel. Both men are winded.]

DAVE SEGOVIA: Whew! You're getting better.

WEDECK: No. You're getting older.

[Segovia chuckles and tries to catch his breath. Wedeck stands next to him chuckling.]

DAVE SEGOVIA: Oh! It's good to see you.

WEDECK: You too.

DAVE SEGOVIA: It's been too long, Stan.

WEDECK: Who said the Senate Intelligence Committee hearings weren't good for anything?

DAVE SEGOVIA: I say it on a daily basis.

WEDECK: Look, Dave, these hearings…

DAVE SEGOVIA: Relax. This is Congress masturbating to the sound of its own voice.

WEDECK: Really?

[Segovia nods.]

WEDECK: 'Cause my understanding is these hearings are gonna re-distribute a lot of funding . Funding is what I need.

DAVE SEGOVIA: Stan, nobody is going to take anything from you.

WEDECK: Look, our Mosaic investigation's already paying off. We're starting to get a real picture of April 29th and what caused the blackout, but it’s gonna take money. And it wouldn't hurt to have a big dog on my side.

DAVE SEGOVIA: No, you don't want me as your friend.

WEDECK: Why?

DAVE SEGOVIA: Clemente's chairing these hearings. You remember?

[Wedeck is taken off guard and says nothing.]

DAVE SEGOVIA: You didn't know that?

WEDECK: You think I'd even set foot in D.C. if I did?

[The two men say nothing. Dave is still trying to catch his breath.]

WEDECK: All right, I would've. Because this is that important, Dave.

[Segovia laughs.]

WEDECK: What?

DAVE SEGOVIA: No, it's just that the, the trusty boy scout is funny coming from you.

WEDECK: Huh. You would know.

[Wedeck starts dribbling the basketball, shoots for the basket and it goes in. Segovia groans and goes for the ball. Switch to a dojo. A Tae Kwon Do class is in progress. The students are sitting in a circle on the floor. Janis, a black belt, is waiting to spar with another black belt student. The Sensei stands between them. They bow to each other and the Sensei claps to signal start. The man kicks at Janis two times. She responds with kicks and punches. Janis' kiai is loud. She takes the attacking approach and kicks her opponent in the stomach. He falls. The Sensei signals to stop the sparring. Janis helps her opponent up. They bow to each other and they bow to their Sensei. Janis returns to her place in the circle. She squeezes the shoulder of another female student who is next to her in the circle The woman stands as Janis' opponent starts talking to her.]

MALE KARATE PUPIL: Hey that was a pretty impressive move back there. I mean, you almost knocked the wind out of me.

JANIS: Oh, I'm sorry. Are you okay?

MALE KARATE PUPIL: Yeah, yeah, no problem. Um, so "Enter The Dragon's" playing at the, the Nuart tonight. I, I thought maybe we could check it out.

JANIS: Oh, sorry. I already have plans tonight.

MALE KARATE PUPIL: Okay. Maybe another time.

JANIS: Yeah, maybe, yeah.

MALE KARATE PUPIL: Yeah. All right, I’ll catch you guys later.

[Maya waves bye to the man. Janis joins in.]

JANIS: Bye.

WOMAN: What a douche.

[Switch to Janis walking with a co-worker at the FBI building in Los Angeles.]

CO-WORKER: What's his name, and more importantly, does he have a brother?

JANIS: I don't know. I'm still wading in.

[Agent Gough approaches the two women. He hands a flash drive to Janis.]

AGENT GOUGH: Good morning, Here you go, sunshine. You're very own haystack.

JANIS: What is this?

AGENT GOUGH: Eighteen years of satellite imagery from Southern Somalia, courtesy of the Central Intelligence Agency.

JANIS: Oh, I thought you and Mark got shut down on that.

AGENT GOUGH: Well, we got un-shut.

[Janis hands the flash drive to her co-worker.]

JANIS: Oh. Upload whatever's on here and we'll start pouring through it.

CO-WORKER: Pouring through for what?

JANIS: Anything that relates to the crow die-off in '91, especially if we can substantiate reports that people lost consciousness in the Ganwar Region during that time.

AGENT GOUGH: Bonus points if we can find something that give Wedeck extra ammo in Washington.

CO-WORKER: Anything to keep our happy investigation going? I'm on it.

[Gough and Janis chuckle. Switch to the press conference room. Demetri is text messaging on his cell phone. Wedeck is sitting beside him in the audience area. Agent Vreede is sitting on the other side of Demetri.]

WEDECK: Where's Benford?

DEMETRI: Back at the hotel. He said photo ops make him constipated.

WEDECK: Tell him to get in line.

[Demetri chuckles.]

AGENT VREEDE: I wish my fifth grade teacher could see me now. Always said I'd either end up dead or in prison.

DEMETRI: There's still time, my friend. There's still time.

[The Press Secretary enters the room and walks straight to the podium. The flash from numbers cameras is seen. People are whispering, indistinctly, among themselves.]

PRESS SECRETARY: Ladies and gentlemen of the Press, the President will make a brief statement. At the conclusion of the statement, the President will answer a limited number of questions. Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States.

[Numerous camera shutters are clicking from the audience. Everyone stands as the President enters the conference area and takes the podium. Reporters in the audience are shouting over each other in an attempt to get a question to the President.]

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Please. Please be seated. Be seated please.

[Wedeck closely watches the President.]

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: So if you want to understand why the Senate hearings were closed, you'd have to ask a Senator. But I'm willing to wager it's because National Security issues will be discussed. Next question.

[Everyone raises their hands and continue to talk over other people. The President selects a reporter.]

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: [points] Scott.

REPORTER: Mr. President, three weeks since the blackouts and there still no centralized agency to deal with the consequences. What is your response to critics who say that your administration hasn't learned from the lessons of 9-1-1 and Katrina?

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: Well, today's hearings have been convened to address just this issue. We're coordinating our responses. We're re-directing funds to the most promising leads and we're dropping investigations which are not producing results. When I finalize my Vice-Presidential choice, he or she will supervise these efforts. Thank you all.

[Wedeck's eyes widen as the President speaks and he lowers his head when the President stops.]

PRESS SECRETARY: Thank you everybody.

[The President starts to walk away from the podium. Various conversations are taking place. Camera shutters are still clicking. A voice is heard above all the din.]

REPORTER 2: Why aren't you sharing what you saw in your flash-forward, Mr. President?

[The room falls silent. The President returns to the podium.]

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: Mr. Obregon, like many other world leaders, I'm following the policy of not revealing what I saw.

[Part of the President's flash-forward is shown. He is lying in bed with a woman. The door opens and a secret service man walks in.]

SECRET SERVICE MAN: [in flash] Mr. President, sir. I'm sorry to wake you but something's happening.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: [real time] I'm thinking about the present, not the future, Oscar. We have too much to do. Thank you all.

[The audience continues to talk over each other. They are discussing the press conference, some with each other and some with those not present at the conference. Wedeck sits with his left hand supporting his jaw. He is thinking. As people start to exit the conference area, a man approaches Wedeck.]

SECRET SERVICE MAN 2: Mr. Wedeck. Please follow me.

[Wedeck follows, Demetri and Vreede are left behind. Switch to outside the Benford residence. Aaron is working on a security system. Olivia is with him.]

AARON: Okay. All I need is a new code.

OLIVIA: Uh, 0-3-1-2. Wedding anniversary.

AARON: You sure you don't want to pick something that Mark will remember?

[Olivia chuckles then Aaron chuckles.]

AARON: How's it going in Washington?

OLIVIA: Uh, not great. Mark called. He sounds stressed.

AARON: I'm sure he'll do fine. [pause] You don't seem too sure.

OLIVIA: Uh, this case has him traveling a lot, and he's away from home, his support system.

[Aaron continues working on the security system.]

OLIVIA: So I overheard you both talking about him going to meetings in Washington.

[Aaron stops, takes off his glasses and looks at Olivia.]

OLIVIA: Is he having a hard time?

AARON: It's just a friendly reminder.

OLIVIA: It's just that the last time Mark had a problem he was away from home, testifying in one of his cases. He'd just been promoted at work.

AARON: This is a little different.

OLIVIA: I think it's exactly the same [pause] and even if it wasn't…

AARON: [interrupts] Look, I get it. Things have been stressful for both of you.

OLIVIA: I guess Mark told you about my flash-forward?

AARON: [nods] Mm.

OLIVIA: Of course.

[Olivia fights back tears.]

OLIVIA: Uh, he's just fixated now on the idea that in six month's time, I'm gonna be sleeping with another man, which is insane, but his whole job depends on these flash-forwards coming true. So,…

AARON: [interrupts] Mark's an alcoholic, Olivia. He doesn't need a reason to drink. He drinks because he drinks.

OLIVIA: I know.

AARON: If you're asking me is he going take a drink, …

OLIVIA: [interrupts] I am.

AARON: [pause] Are you asking for him or for you?

OLIVIA: [shakes head] I don't know. [pause] I love him, Aaron. I just [pause] I know I can't control him. That's the hardest part about all of this.

AARON: Trust always is with an alcoholic. But, if you can't trust Mark, who can you trust?

[Switch to the Oval Office on the White House. Wedeck is sitting in a chair in front to the President's desk while the President leans on his desk.]

WEDECK: Let me guess. You remembered you owe me and had a change of heart about helping me out.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: Stan, we're not on the campaign trail anymore and inside the Beltway, well, you have to be a little subtler about calling in our chits.

WEDECK: I got out of the Beltway, if you recall.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: Yeah.

WEDECK: Mm hmm.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: Well, you're right about me owing you one and you're right about me helping you out. But my plan is gonna bring you right back in the Beltway.

WEDECK: Hmm.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: I always felt really bad that I couldn't bring you on board initially.

WEDECK: It's fine. Everything worked out.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: You know, the Chinese view chaos as opportunity, and the blackout gives me the chance to pay you back.

[The two men look at each other.]

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: Director of Homeland Security, a member of my Cabinet.

[Wedeck pauses for a moment before replying.]

WEDECK: I'm pretty sure Clemente will block my appointment.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: Clemente's got bigger fish to fry.

[Both men pause again. The President puts his left hand on Wedeck's right shoulder.]

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: Think about it. There's no rush.

[Switch to Los Angeles. It is nighttime and the buildings are all lit up. Switch to inside a posh restaurant. A woman laughs as a plate is being put on the table. Both women are dressed up and flirting. A piano plays in the background.]

JANIS: Thank you. This is, like, the sixth course. What are you a food critic or something?

MAYA: Chef, actually. This is my restaurant. Well the one where I work.

JANIS: Well, hmm.

MAYA: Your being FBI, I'm guessing you’re not …

JANIS: Oh, out? [chuckles] No. I work for the Federal Government, and they're not too big on trusting gays with guns.

MAYA: Who knows? Maybe six months from now we'll all be more enlightened. In my flash-forward I'm here in the restaurant, but I have a wedding band on my finger.

[Janis laughs.]

MAYA: That was way too much information, especially for a first date.

JANIS: No, no, no, no. Maybe it's a sign of how well this is going.

MAYA: Help me change the subject. What did you see in your flash-forward?

JANIS: Well, I was, on the International Space Station having a three-way with Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin.

MAYA: [bows head] Really? Actually, did I was I was in the restaurant?

JANIS: Mm hmm.

MAYA: I meant I was on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" and Angelina Jolie was the game show host.

JANIS: [chuckles] Oh, you slut.

MAYA: [shrugs] Yeah, Angie just asked me the million-dollar question, I went to phone a friend, you, but you didn't answer. So my millionaire moment was gone.

JANIS: [hand under chin] Well, I don't buy that.

MAYA: What, that Angelina Jolie would be a game show host?

JANIS: [shakes head] No, that I would ever let you down like that.

[The two women look at each other for a moment. Janis leans in and touches Maya's cheeks. Janis kisses Maya. Switch to outside the Capitol building. It is daytime.]

Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing
Closed Session


[The hearing has begun. Senator Clemente is chairing the meeting. A woman, in a red suit, wearing a Visitor ID badge is standing at a podium in the center aisle. She has the floor.]

WOMAN TESTIFYING: Well, actually Senator Clemente, the F.O.A, E.P.A., and the C.D.C. have all ruled out psychotropic pharmaceuticals in the global water supply as a potential cause of the consciousness shift.

MAN TESTIFYING: An alien intelligence may have been at work here, yes. That's what we're thinking.

DIRECTOR KELLER: China.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Can you elaborate, Director Keller?

DIRECTOR KELLER: China's population numbers one point three billion, yet they suffered fatalities of less than half a percent during the blackout.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: No mystery. When the blackout happened it was 2 in the morning over there. Everybody was asleep.

DIRECTOR KELLER: That doesn't strike you as a bit convenient? They're practically untouched while America suffers the greatest number of casualties per capita of any country in the world.

[Wedeck, Demetri, and Mark are chatting among themselves, in the audience.]

DIRECTOR KELLER: It is the C.I.A.'s belief that this was not an accident. We believe that this was a targeted event designed to bring about the collapse of our government.

[Wedeck looks at Director Keller with a blank face.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Let's take a short recess then we'll hear from Stanford Wedeck, Field Director of the FBI's Los Angeles office. [sarcastically] Agent Wedeck is currently running an interesting investigation that has diverged significantly from the methodology employed by the rest of the Bureau.

[Switch to Wedeck talking on his cell phone with is wife, Felicia.]

WEDECK: It's all Kabuki Theater. Now I remember what I hate about D.C., what this place turns me into.

FELECIA WEDECK: Stan, just remember who you are. This whole thing will blow over and you'll be home before you know it.

[Senator Clemente approaches Wedeck while he is still on the phone.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: [smugly] Enjoying D.C., Stanford?

WEDECK: [to Felecia] I'm gonna have to call you back.

[He snaps his phone shut.]

WEDECK: Joyce.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Senator, actually.

WEDECK: Has anyone ever told you you're a sore loser, Joyce?

SENATOR CLEMENTE: [scoffs] Look who's talking. You're the one who got put out to pasture. Speaking of which, [exhales deeply] how do you sleep at night knowing what you did with that woman?

[Taken aback by her statement, Wedeck just looks at Clemente.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Does your wife know? If I could've proved what you did six years ago, I would be sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office right now.

WEDECK: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I doubt you would've gotten a second term.

[Clemente moves closer to Wedeck.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: "If you sit by the river long enough, you'll see the bodies of your enemies float by."

WEDECK: Sun Tzu.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Get ready to float, Stanford.

WEDECK: [pointing] You want to go after me? You give it your best shot., but Mosaic…

SENATOR CLEMENTE: [interrupts] Is a joke! Not everyone's visions are going to come true.

WEDECK: Most people don't agree.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Most people didn't see what I did. I saw myself as President in six months.

[Wedeck stands agape.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Now as impossible as that may be, it's a nice thought. [sarcastically] Isn't it?

[Senator Clemente turns and walks away. Mark approaches Wedeck.]

WEDECK: How much of that did you hear?

MARK: Enough to know I don't want to be the guy in Joyce Clemente's gun sights.

WEDECK: No, you don't.

[Switch back to the hearing. Wedeck is at the podium. Marks watches intently.]

WEDECK: While others are using what they know of the present to explain the blackout, our office is trying to consolidate information gleaned from the flash-forwards themselves. The Mosaic Collective has gathered the visions of hundreds of thousands of people all around the world, letting our office construct a picture of what the world will look like on April 29th, 2010.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: A tact, I believe you've taken without prior approval or proper authorization.

WEDECK: It's gotten results.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: [sarcastically] Yes, I forgot. You're an "ends justify means" kind of guy no matter how questionable those means may be.

WEDECK: In this case, the "means" merely involve using the future we've seen to guide our investigation of the blackout.

SENATOR 2: How, exactly?

WEDECK: One of our agents had a flash-forward of himself investigating the cause of the blackout. He remembers leads and investigatory paths that we won't have for another six months. Those leads have already led to significant breaks in the case.

[Clemente and the other Senator look at each other quizzically.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Significant might be overstating things a little, Agent Wedeck

SENATOR 2: Still, if your entire investigation is bottomed on what this one agent saw…

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Perhaps we should hear from him.

WEDECK: I'm the Deputy Field Director, Madame Chairman.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Yes, you seem to have landed on your feet quite nicely, Mr. Wedeck.

WEDECK: The point being, I'm the one heading up the investigation. Not to mention the fact that Agent Benford's already been thoroughly vetted, including submitting to a polygraph.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: In that case, he won't mind submitting to some questions from us.

[Clemente strikes with the gavel.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: This hearing reconvenes tomorrow at 10 A.M. with Agent Benford's testimony.

[There is chatter in the gallery. Clemente smugly looks at Wedeck as he goes to Mark.]

WEDECK: Just tell the truth, Mark. It's gotten us this far.

[People stand and start exiting the gallery. Switch to a shot of Los Angeles and then to Janis making scrambled eggs in the morning. "A Story" by the Sugarplum Fairies plays in the background.]


It’s what’s called a situation
Circumstance attempts salvation
You can’t recycle wasted time
Or make a killing on a dime


MAYA: Here. Let a professional do that.

JANIS: Thank you. You know, I'm not totally useless, Maya. I can break down a Sig Sauer in like, 12 seconds.

MAYA: I'm impressed. I don't even know what a Sig Sauer is.

[Maya kisses Janis.]



Let the story begin
Let’s get the blanks filled in
Miles of silent words
They’re the ones that always hurt the worst
Let the story begin


[An alarm clock buzzes and interrupts the kiss.]

JANIS: Oh, stupid alarm clock. I can never set it right.

[Janis shuts off the alarm, buttons her suit jacket and walks back into the kitchen.]

JANIS: No wonder I'm always late. Speaking of which, I actually have to go to the office now.

MAYA: Exciting day? Collaring bad guys?

JANIS: [laughs] Okay, yeah. You watch too much cable. And no, it’s actually a busy day analyzing satellite imagery. So, totally different.

MAYA: All right, so let me get dressed.

JANIS: No, no, no, no. Stay. Eat food. Rifle through my stuff. Just lock the door when you leave, okay?

[Maya nods. Janis walks to the door to go to work.]

MAYA: Will I see you later?

[Janis stops and turns around.]

MAYA: One of my friends is having a showing at the Merton Gallery.

JANIS: Yeah.

MAYA: Great.

[Switch back to the Senate hearing. Mark is speaking at the podium. Wedeck and Demetri are sitting in the audience.]

MARK: We've determine that at least two men were awake during the blackout. Moreover, we've discovered a recurring theme of crow attrition.

SENATOR 2: "Crow attrition?”

MARK: Crows died all over the world during the recent blackout. The same thing happened in Somalia in 1991. Now I'm no scientist, but that seems significant to me.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Because you saw it in your flash-forward?

MARK: No, we learned about the crow deaths from a lead that I remembered from my flash-forward.

SENATOR 2: And this is a lead you followed up on your own?

MARK: My office did, yes.

SENATOR 2: Why exactly has your office set up its own investigation without getting authorization from FBI Headquarters?

MARK: Well, to be perfectly honest, in my flash-forward I seemed to be [pause] or rather, the L.A. Office seemed to be at the center of the blackout investigation.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Really? And, uh, how did you determine this?

DEMETRI: [under his breath] Here we go.

MARK: In my vision, I was running point on something called Mosaic.

[Snippet of Mark's flash-forward is shown in the background while he speaks at the hearing. He was standing in front of the board and the word MOSAIC is prominent.]

MARK: I had a case board set up in my office, covered in clues, pictures, leads. Everything that you would see in an ongoing fruitful investigation.

SENATOR 2: In other words, you're investigating this because you had a vision of investigating this.

[Wedeck is fidgeting in his seat.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Okay, you have a bulletin board with lots of nice pictures on it. But what led you to assume your investigation would actually amount to anything?

MARK: Because, Madame Chair, I also saw a team of masked gunmen trying to kill me…

[Snippet of Mark's flash-forward in the background with 2-masked gunman using laser sights. The red beams are shown].

MARK: …presumably for what we will have accomplished in this investigation over the next six months.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Six months from now masked gunmen are going to burst into your office in a secure Federal building and try to kill you?

MARK: That’s what I saw. Yes.

[The camera shows Senator Clemente, Wedeck and Mark. Switch to the FBI building in Los Angeles. Janis enters a conference room where Agent Gough and her coworker are using a laptop.]

JANIS: So, did you find anything?

CO-WORKER: Yes. The Ganwar Region is the habitat of the remarkable Somali pygmy gerbil.

JANIS: Awesome.

CO-WORKER: [to Janis] So how was your date?

AGENT GOUGH: Whoa! You had a date?

CO-WORKER: Was there any groping?

JANIS: Can we focus, please, on what we're doing?

[Her co-worker starts typing again.]

JANIS: Okay, if the satellite imagery doesn't give us anything, then let's start to look at environmental statistics. Anomalies in the ozone layer, sunburst activity during that time, anything.

CO-WORKER: Any reasonable explanations?

JANIS: Now you're talking. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait.

[Janis points to the monitor of the laptop.]

JANIS: Do you see that? Is that an asphalt road? Go forward.

[The picture is zoomed in several times. Five objects are seen.]

JANIS: What are those?

AGENT GOUGH: Wow!

CO-WORKER: They look like pylons.

JANIS: In the middle of nowhere.

CO-WORKER: Or towers.

JANIS: Huh.

[Switch back to the Senate hearing. Mark is at the podium.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Agent Benford, why were you alone in the office that night?

MARK: [sips from a glass of water] Presumably I was working late.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: And what were you doing before you realized the gunmen were in there?

MARK: Looking at the Mosaic case board. I think I might have been on the phone at some point but I'm not sure who I was talking to.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: How can you not be sure?

[Clemente crosses her arms in front of her chest.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: [smugly] Other people who were on the phone in their flash-forwards remember who they were talking to.

MARK: If you don't believe me, Senator, you should talk to the Bureau agent who polygraphed me.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: I did. He was kind enough to provide a transcript of your session.

[Clemente picks up the polygraph document and fingers through some pages.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: You described your experience as "impressionistic flashes of reality." Is this correct?

MARK: Yes.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: And from what I can tell, you've recounted about thirty seconds worth of "impressions." Everyone else we've heard from, unless they were asleep, experienced vivid, easily recalled visions covering the entire two minutes and seventeen seconds of the blackout.

MARK: Is that a question?

SENATOR CLEMENTE: I'm just trying to understand. Was the building on fire? Was there smoke in the room? [aggressive] Why is everything in your recollection so hazy and disjointed?

[Snippet of Mark's flash-forward where is his holding the flask to his head then taking a drink.]

MARK: As far as I know, there was no fire.

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Then how do you account for the stark, qualitative difference between your experience of the blackout and everyone else's?

MARK: With all due respect, Madame Chair, have you spoken to all seven billion people on the planet?

SENATOR CLEMENTE: No, I haven't, possibly because those seven billion people aren't seeking millions of dollars to spearhead an investigation based on their somewhat murky flash-forwards.

[Wedeck shakes his head and brings his hand to his forehead.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Senator Clemente, could I just…..

[Clemente ignores Mark's attempt to talk, raises her voice and gestures.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Hundreds of thousands of federal dollars have been spent because of what you claim to have seen. Don't you think somebody…

WEDECK: [to Clemente] How dare you!

SENATOR CLEMENTE: ..should have ascertained what you were doing during the other hundred plus seconds of your vision?

[Wedeck is glaring at Clemente.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Am I the only one who thinks these investigative techniques seem a little closer to Voodoo or fraud?

[Wedeck loudly closes his attaché, stand up, storms out of the gallery, slamming the door behind him.]

SENATOR CLEMENTE: Now, did someone have a question about Nazi repatriation?

[Switch to Mark, Demetri and Vreede walking out in the corridor. Mark is trying to contact Wedeck using his cell phone.]

MARK: Where the hell is Wedeck?

AGENT VREEDE: Toilet?

DEMETRI: For forty minutes?

MARK: Went straight to voice mail. What a disaster.

AGENT VREEDE: Well that Clemente is a hard-ass.

DEMETRI: Yeah, but you know, when you hear it laid out like that, is does sound questionable. It sounds like we consulted the Psychic Network for clues or something.

MARK:Oh, thanks for the support.

DEMETRI: I'm not saying I think that necessarily. Its just, it sounds totally nuts. Dead birds, D. Gibbons, doll heads.

AGENT VREEDE: China. That's starting to sound pretty good right about now.

MARK: So it was a mistake to mention the doll's head. Is that what you're saying?

DEMETRI: Yeah.

AGENT VREEDE: Eh?

[Mark's cell phone rings and he answers it.]

MARK: Benford.

JANIS: Get to a laptop, boyfriend. We got something you're gonna want to see.

[Scene FBI conference room with Gough, Janis and her co-worker.]

MARK: What are we looking at here?

JANIS: Wajid, Somalia, population 325, about 200 miles east of nowhere.

[Vreede, Mark and Demetri are sitting on a bench in the corridor looking at a laptop monitor that Mark has on his lap.

DEMETRI: Oprah's building a school there?

JANIS: Honey, be quiet. The grown-ups are talking.

[Demetri smiles. The three men look at the monitor. It shows a satellite picture of five spots that appear star-shaped.]

JANIS: This is a satellite photo taken December, 1990, about five months before your crows did a face-plant.

MARK: What the hell are those?

JANIS: We don't know but they were built from scratch over the course of five months. You get the idea.

[The three men are looking at photos that show the progression of the construction. Zooms in on one of the structures.]

AGENT GOUGH: It looks like they were about one hundred feet tall when they were completed, here in April, 1991.

[Photo of a complete structure. Vreede watches intently.]

MARK: The same month our proto-blackout hit. Any idea what these structures are?

JANIS: Beats me, but it's the last thing I'd expect to see at a place that doesn't even have indoor plumbing.

AGENT GOUGH: We're sending the images down to forensics for evaluation.

MARK: The State Department's been stonewalling us on our request to send a team in. This looks like it'll cut through some red tape.

JANIS: Whoever built these clearly didn't want anyone else to know about them.

[Switch to Wedeck walking out of the Capitol building. It is dusk. He stops in the courtyard, thinks a moment then takes out his cell phone and makes a call.]

JANIS: Janis Hawk.

WEDECK: Janis, this is Wedeck.

JANIS: Everything okay?

WEDECK: Mm hmm. I need you to do something for me right away.

[Switch to evening in Los Angeles. Maya is standing in front of a piece of artwork as Janis approaches. "Wait in Line" by The Estate plays in the background. The lyrics are indistinct however the melody is not.]

JANIS: Hey, Maya.

MAYA: Hi.

[They hug each other.]

JANIS: Sorry I'm late. My boss called right as I was out the door.

MAYA: No worries.

[Janis steps back to look at Maya's attire.]

JANIS: Wow.

MAYA: I got you a little something.

JANIS: Thank you.

MAYA: I saw it and thought of you.

[Janis reaches into a black drawstring pouch. There is chiming coming from the bag. She takes out a chrome alarm clock with white wheels on the sides.]

ALARM CLOCK: Wake up. It's time to get up.

[Janis laughs.]

MAYA: So you're not late anymore unless you want to be.

JANIS: Thank you.

ALARM CLOCK: Wake up.

JANIS: That's very sweet.

MAYA: Can I ask you something?

JANIS: Yeah.

MAYA: It's a little awkward.

JANIS: [laughs] You're getting all flustered.

MAYA: Do you date guys, too?

JANIS: [laughs] Um, the last one was in high school, and I try not to think about it. Why?

MAYA: Well, I guess that's the part that's awkward. Um, I kind of did something.

JANIS: [gasps] You went through my stuff! Oh I knew you would do that.

MAYA: No.

JANIS: Hmm?

MAYA: I did the next best thing. I Mosaic-ed you.

JANIS: You what?

MAYA: I couldn't resist. It's way better than Google stalking. I saw that in five months from now, you'll be, you know, pregnant.

[Janis is caught off guard. Snippet of Janis' flash-forward as she is getting an ultrasound.]

MAYA: And as talented as I may be in the bedroom…

JANIS: Yeah, that'd be pretty impressive.

MAYA: It's not a big deal. I mean, in my flash-forward I'm wearing a wedding ring.

[Janis steps away and fiddles with an earring.]

MAYA: Maybe, maybe it's ours. For what it's worth, I think that you're gonna be a great mom.

[Janis turns and looks quizzically at Maya.]

MAYA: And that was the wrong thing to say, too.

JANIS: [exhales] This isn't a "me/you" thing Maya. This is a "me" thing. And honestly, I haven't even figured it out yet. I don't even know what I'm gonna do.

[There is a pause between the two women. Neither one is smiling.]

JANIS: You know what, I, I don't think I can do this [pause] right now. [pause] I'm sorry. I'm really sorry.

[Janis leaves Maya and exits the art gallery. Maya tries to maintain her composure. Switch to a man knocking on a door. A woman answers the door. A little boy peeks out from another room. He is wearing pajamas.]

RENEE: Hello Stan. It's been a while.

WEDECK: May I come in, Renee?

[Stan enters and kisses Renee on the cheek. A little boy runs to Wedeck and he picks him up. The two hug each other. They are happy.]

WEDECK: My man! Hello my man! What's happening? What's happening?

[The boy giggles and Renee closes the door. Switch to Wedeck and the President sitting in the Oval Office. They both are holding brandy snifters. They toast.]

WEDECK: Long way from two-dollar beer night at Geno's.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: My first term was a bitch. I could've used you , Stan. Really, I'm sorry I couldn't bring you in. But I can now. So, have you thought about D.H.S.? I know you'd love being Anastasia Markham's boss. We ha…

[Wedeck puts down his glass and takes a photo out of his jacket pocket and places it on the coffee table. The President picks it up and looks at it. It is a picture of the President and Renee.]

WEDECK: I'm not here about the job.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: So no more boy scout. How'd you find her?

WEDECK: Well, I was the bagman who paid her a quarter of a million dollars to disappear, remember? Only she didn't go very far. She's living with the boy, right here in Georgetown in fact.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: And you know that how?

WEDECK: Through our Mosaic website. It's really quite amazing how we've been able to cross-reference all these people's visions. Turns out Ms. Garrigos had a vision, too. She saw herself living in Puerto Rico six months from now. And in her Mosaic post she remarked how different that was from her current home in Georgetown.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: You know what I liked about having you around, Stan? You weren't just [pause] comfortable in the mud. You enjoy being there.

[The two men look at each other for a moment.]

WEDECK: Clemente's going to cut off the funding unless you stop her. So, stop her and the negative goes into the shredder.

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: You can only play this card once, you know. You sure you want to play it now?

WEDECK: Now's all I got.

[Wedeck stands up and take a sip from his snifter.]

WEDECK: Aah.

[Wedeck places down his snifter, stands up and walks out of the room. The President picks up the photo again, looks at it, walks to his desk and reaches for the phone. He dials.]

PRESIDENT SEGOVIA: I've got a problem I need you to take care of.

[Switch to a bar. Sister Christian by Night Ranger is playing. Vreede is singing Karaoke while Demetri and Mark sit at a table.]

AGENT VREEDE:



… motoring
What's your price for flight


DEMETRI: Do it you old man.

AGENT VREEDE:


In finding mister right
You'll be alright tonight


[Vreede motions for Demetri to join him.]

MARK: I hate karaoke. [to Demetri] Think it might be a good idea for you to slow down there?

DEMETRI: I got five months to live. Think that entitles me to blow off a little steam, man.

[Demetri gets up and walks away from the table. Mark sits there with a coffee mug in front of him. Demetri joins Vreede in Karaoke.]

AGENT VREEDE: and DEMETRI:


Sister Christian
Oh the time has come
And you know that you're the only one
To say O.K


[Wedeck sits at the table with Mark. Demetri motions for Mark to join them on stage. Mark leers at Wedeck.]

DEMETRI: Come on Benford.

[Demetri is heard in the background. He is speaking to the Karaoke DJ.]

DEMETRI: Hey, you got any Stones? The Rolling Stones?

WEDECK: [to Mark] You got anything to say?

MARK: Nope.

WEDECK: 'Cause you look a little pissed.

MARK: Why would I be angry? Just because you bailed in the middle of the hearing, left me twisting.

WEDECK: Let's be honest. It's not like my being there would've kept you from choking on the witness stand. You were flailing in there!

[Wedeck angrily gets up and walks away from the table. Demetri and Vreede are still on the karaoke stage. The song has changed to The Rolling Stone cover of "Like a Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan. Mark gets up and follows Wedeck to the bar.]

AGENT VREEDE: and DEMETRI:

About having to be scrounging for your next meal
How does it feel?
How does it feel?
To be on your own
With no direction home
A complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

 
[They continue in the background as Mark and Wedeck converse at the bar.]

MARK: Why didn’t you call for a recess, huh? You could've spoken up for me.

WEDECK: And said what? There's a perfectly good explanation why you're having trouble remembering something the rest of us have lasered into our brains? See this is my own damn fault. Clemente's just asking you questions I should've asked weeks ago, but I didn't because I trusted you.

[Mark scoffs.]

WEDECK: And I went with this whole Mosaic thing in the first place because I believe in you, Mark.

MARK: And I have gotten you results.

WEDECK: [angry] That's not an answer. Now Clemente may be a total bitch but she's right about one thing. Your story's got more holes than a kitchen sponge. Why can't you remember everything?

MARK: [yells back] Because I was loaded, okay?!

[Wedeck steps back. He is stunned by what Mark just said. There is silence for a few moments.]

MARK: What was I supposed to say, Stan? I've been sober seven years and I have zero intention of ever taking another drink again. [lowers voice] But I can't change what I saw.

WEDECK: I, I put my entire career on the line based on your flash-forward and now you're telling me you were impaired when you had it?

[Mark says nothing. He closes his eyes.]

WEDECK: I don't know what I'm doing anymore. That's fantastic, Mark. That's fantastic.

[Demetri and Vreede walk into the bar section of the lounge.]

DEMETRI: Everything okay in here?

WEDECK: Everything's fine. [to Demetri and Vreede] Guys, why don't you buy yourselves a couple of rounds, on me? It's, uh, celebration time.

AGENT VREEDE: What are we celebrating?

WEDECK: [looks at Mark] I got us our funding.

[Wedeck finishes his drink and puts the empty shot glass on the bar in front of Mark. Switch in inside the Benford residence. Olivia is standing in front of the security system panel entering a code. It beeps after every number is entered.]

OLIVIA: Pound, zero, three, one, two. Set.

[The system beeps quickly signaling the information entered is incorrect.]

OLIVIA: Damn it. Aaron.

[Olivia picks up the phone and dials Aaron. An incoming text message overrides her dialing. It reads, "Mark was drinking in his Flash Forward." Olivia texts back. "Who is this?" Her phone reads, "Sending. Message Failed Number Blocked." Olivia is stunned. She puts down the cell phone and stares at it. Switch back to D.C.]

MARK: All things being equal, it wouldn't have been the worst thing in the world if I had…[trails of].

WEDECK: Forget it.

MARK: I just want you to know the details I do remember, I remember clearly.

WEDECK: Fabulous. Look, just keep your mouth shut. You tell anyone else about this, we are D.O.A.

[Demetri, Vreede and Mark wait as Wedeck approaches the valet Dias. There is a newswoman on the television.]

NEWS REPORTER: In Washington, President Segovia has announced his nominee for Vice President, a position which has been vacant since the tragic death of Vice President Pratt during the blackout. Tonight the President says he has nominated Senator Clemente.

[A picture of Clemente is shown.]

NEWS REPORTER: The nominee will have to be approved by a majority vote in both houses of Congress. [fades indistinctly]

MARK: Clemente? I don't get this town.

WEDECK: Everything's a trade-off. D.C.'s your ultimate "can't get something for nothing" place. Here we go.

[The valet pulls up in their car. The men walk toward the car. Switch to Los Angeles at night. Janis turns a corner caring a bag of groceries. She passes a crying girl who is being pushed in a stroller by a woman. Janis just looks at the little girl then keeps walking. Janis' cell phone rings. She takes out her phone to answer.]

JANIS: Hey Mark.

MARK: Just wanted to share some good news with you.

[Mark speaks as he walks around the front of the car to get in the passenger's seat. As each one speaks, the scene switches back and forth from one to the other.]

MARK: We got our funding. Mosaic's still alive.

JANIS: Because of the Somali intel?

MARK: No, Wedeck pulled some kind of rabbit. Who knows. Maybe he wouldn't have had to if…

[Mark is the last person to close the door. Demetri and Vreede are in the back seat while Wedeck is driving and Mark is in the passenger seat. The sound of a speeding vehicle is heard. Tires are screeching as it shifts gears. As the car that Wedeck is driving pulls out of the parking space, a large, black SUV speeds up and hits the car broadside on the passenger's side. The car spins and is pushed back into a parking space. The SUV backs up.]

JANIS: Mark?

[The passenger side also has men that exit. They are all Asian. The passenger has his door partially opened and is using it for cover. He has a pistol aimed at the car. The driver has a grenade launcher and has it aimed at the car. Demetri sees this and pushes Vreede out the door.]

DEMETRI: Get out! Let's go.

MARK: Go! Go!

WEDECK: Let's go!

[The man with the grenade launcher, shoots straight into the car. It explodes. The roof comes flying off. Fire engulfs the car. Janis hears the commotion. She is getting more concerned and speeds up her gait.]

JANIS: Hello? Mark? Hello?

[An Asian man comes up behind Janis. As he puts a gun to her head, she turns and disarms the man. The bullet goes astray. She twists his arm behind his back then kicks his ribs.]

ATTACKER: Aah!!!

[As he yells in agony, she twists his head and breaks his neck. Another Asian man arrives on the scene in front of Janis and her downed attacker. He shoots at her and hits her in the ribs below her left breast. As she falls to her knees, she reaches into her pocket and takes out her pistol. The second attacker turns and runs away. Janis shoots him in the back. They both fall to the ground. Switch to the parking garage in D.C. The four men watch the car burn and keep their guns locked on the vehicle. In the background "Like a Rolling Stone" plays. The following scene takes place while these verses play in the background.]



Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They're all drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
Exchanging all precious gifts
But you'd better take your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
When you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.


How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?


[Mark looks between the flames with his gun aimed at the black SUV. He starts shooting at the men. Next Wedeck comes from between two cars and starts shooting. Demetri stands up and he starts shooting. Vreede is standing and shooting as well. The men from the SUV return fire. One man is using a car for cover and shooting a machine gun. He is hit and falls to the ground. Wedeck is using a pole in the garage for cover. He looks over at Mark and nods. The driver of the SUV, while using the door for cover, shoots at Demetri who returns fire. The man using the grenade launcher is hit. The man falls and the grenade launcher flies through the air. The driver and passenger of the SUV get back into the vehicle, back up then turn it around. With tires screeching, they speed out of the garage. The license plate on the SUV reads 7S 8487.Vreede and Demetri walk in the direction of the moving SUV while shooting at it. The SUV exits the parking garage. Demetri screams as he ejects the empty magazine from his gun. Switch to Janis lying in the street. She is bleeding profusely. Sirens are heard in the background. The alarm clock is rolling around in the street next to Janis hip.]

ALARM CLOCK: Wake up. It's time to get up. Wake up. It's time to get up.

[Snippet of Janis' flash-forward where she is getting a ultrasound.]

ALARM CLOCK: Wake up. It's time to get up.

[Snippet from her flash-forward showing the ultrasound monitor.]

JANIS: [flash] Tell me.

ULTRASOUND ATTENDANT: [flash] It's a girl.

[Janis cries. Back to reality. Janis is still lying on the pavement and bleeding. She is not moving. She is holding her wound. Her purse is above her head and the alarm clock is now spinning in circles in her blood.]

[END]
