EXT. CAPRICA GENERAL HOSPITAL - DAY
SUPER TITLE: One Month Later
INT. CAPRICA GENERAL HOSPITAL - AMANDA’S OFFICE - DAY
Vergis, angrier than shit, storms into Amanda’s office.
What the hell are you doing? You
can’t just charge in here whenever
you’re on Caprica and --
My development lab was broken into,
a key piece of technology was
stolen, and three of my best
scientists were killed!
Call the police.
I have. And guess who my chief
suspect is? Your husband.
Oh, come on, Tomas.
He wanted that technology. So he
arranged for someone to get it.
Took the only prototype. Destroyed
the lab records. Killed the men
who knew how it worked!
Is this what you’ve finally become,
Tomas? A paranoid little man who
actually believes that the richest
and most powerful industrialist in
the twelve worlds is a murderer and
He wouldn’t stoop to your level.
Vergis advances aggressively towards Amanda who doesn’t flinch.
You try it, Tomas. You frakking
try touching me.
Vergis holds back.
No? Then get out of here before I
A beat and then...
So, it comes down to Daniel after
It was always Daniel.
Another beat and then Vergis storms out.
EXT. GRAYSTONE ESTATE - NIGHT
INT. GRAYSTONE ESTATE - DANIEL’S LABORATORY - NIGHT
Joseph is sitting at a work table while Daniel carefully takes a SMALL ELECTRONIC DEVICE out of a durable, shock-proof case. He’s treating the device like it’s extremely fragile.
Gotta hand it to Vergis... it’s an
elegant design. Fortunately, it’s
close enough to our preliminary
work that it shouldn’t be too hard
for Cyrus to construct a convincing
He barely breathes as he carries the MCP and sets it into a small CRADLE on the table. Then he seals it behind a GLASS CASE. Once it’s sealed, Daniel lets out a long breath.
Joseph is unmoved.
You know this has more raw
computing power than the three
supercomputers at Apollo University
Does it work?
I won’t know that until I try to
put it into a robotic body and try
to download Zoe-A into it.
Couple days. Got a surprise for
Daniel gestures to the FLASH stick over on the work bench, where it’s enmeshed in a maze of circuitry and connections.
Tamara-A is ready to go.
I used Zoe’s original avatar
program to search and download any
data on Tamara Adams -- school
records, medical, DNA -- well,
you’ve heard the list. About 300
You mean... she’s... in there?
(barely hearing him)
You know, the more I work with
Zoe’s code, the more I realize she
was nothing short of a computer
genius... can’t believe I never
I want to see her.
He gestures to a HoloBand.
Thought you would. Go through the
Joseph looks over at the HoloBand like it suddenly turned into a snake that might bite him. He gingerly picks it up and puts it on...
INT. BLUE ROOM
Joseph finds himself in the blue limbo once more. TWO DOORS now float before him -- brown and YELLOW. He OPENS the Yellow door --
INT. HOLDING ROOM 2 - CONTINUOUS
Virtually identical to the other Holding Room with the same generic furniture. Joseph ENTERS and sees --
Sitting on the far side of the room, her head in her hands and looking very, very frightened. She looks up at her father... there’s a moment before she recognizes him.
Joseph moves toward her, sweeps her up in his arms, his heart bursting.
It’s okay, honey... I’m right
Oh, Daddy. I’m so scared. What is
this place... why am I here...?
It’s confusing, I know. But it’s
all going to be all right.
I feel so strange...
You’re fine. Everything’s all
She pulls back from him, her breath coming in short, frightened pants as hysteria begins to creep up on her.
No it’s not. This isn’t right.
Something’s wrong -- really, really
wrong. What’s going on? Why’s the
door locked? Why can’t I leave
This will take some time to
explain... the important thing
is... we’re together...
(starting to lose it)
I can’t remember how I got here...
I can’t remember where I was before
now... none of this seems real...
I don’t feel real... this isn’t...
real. This isn’t REAL!
Willie misses you -- I miss you --
we can be a family again --
Daddy, I can’t feel my heart! WHY
ISN’T MY HEART BEATING!?
She SCREAMS --
INT. DANIEL’S PRIVATE LAB - NIGHT
Joseph tears the HoloBand from his head and throws it across the lab.
You okay -- what happened?
Joseph’s heart is racing -- touches his chest, aware on some level of the irony. It takes a moment to steady himself.
She doesn’t want to live like
that... she couldn’t feel her
heart... it’s an abomination.
It’s a miracle. Joseph -- she’s
probably confused by everything,
that’s only natural. But once
she’s out of the virtual world and
in a real body --
Joseph suddenly PINS HIM TO THE WALL, barely restrained violence now boiling to the surface. Daniel’s eyes go wide.
Destroy... it. Now.
Okay. Okay, Joe... whatever you
Joseph releases him, and Daniel picks up a computer sheet and makes a few marks. He holds it out for Joseph to see.
There -- I’ve wiped all the files
from memory. She’s gone.
Joseph suddenly can’t get out of here fast enough. He heads for the door.
You’ll be back. A week, a month, a
Our daughter’s are dead. I have to
live with that. And so do you.
No. No, I don’t.
As Daniel goes back to working on the computer sheet.
