    TEASER

    CUT TO:


    EXT ? STREET ? NIGHT

    Riley is witnessing the horrid events unfold in front of him. He sees the many vampires, and then a vampire punches him in his stomach. Ian sees this.

    IAN: Riley!

    Riley punches the vampire back, who, in turn, knees him. Riley throws the vamp to the ground, and jumps on him. Riley continuously punches him, but another vampire pulls him back and bites him the neck. Riley lets out a huge scream. Ian runs towards him.

    IAN: Get off of him!

    The vampire stops biting Riley, who falls to his knee. The vampire smiles and Ian punches that vamp. Riley slowly gets back up to his feet, but his eyes are turning black. Ian looks at Riley strangely. Riley runs to Ian with his eyes being black.

    IAN: Riley?


    Riley punches into Ian's stomach, his fist going through him. He gasps. Riley smiles at Ian, evilly.

    IAN: (desperate) Ian...

    Ian falls to the floor, dead. Riley, his eyes black, is smiling.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? IAN'S BAR ? RILEY'S ROOM ? NIGHT

    Riley opens his eyes drastically. He was dreaming. He quickly gets up and runs out of the room.

    INT ? IAN'S BAR ? UPSTAIRS ? NIGHT

    Riley has run into the entrance and then runs down the stairs, to the bar area.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? IAN'S BAR ? BAR ? NIGTH

    Riley has entered the bar area of Ian's place. He walks behind the counter and grabs a bottle of beer. He opens it and takes a big gulp. You hear footsteps coming down the stairs, and Riley continues to drink the beer at the bar. You see Ian come into the bar, tired and confused.

    IAN: (yawning) Riley?

    RILEY: (drinking) Yeah, it's me.

    IAN: What are you doing up so late?


    Ian walks next to Riley.

    RILEY: Bad dream...

    IAN: You got scared of a bad dream? But, you're Riley?

    Riley looks at Ian, mad.

    RILEY: In the dream, I was stabbed, and then I killed you.

    IAN: Oh...

    Ian sits down next to Riley.

    IAN: Wow.

    Riley looks down, tired and depressed.

    IAN: That's weird, but...I get it.

    RILEY: Really? Cause, I don't.

    Beat.

    IAN: In this...business, you could say, lots of bad stuff happens.


    RILEY: (laughing) I know that, Ian.

    IAN: You're afraid of what you'll become.

    Riley starts to actually listens to Ian.

    IAN: You're afraid of death. Death for you, death for the people you care about. Death for me. You're afraid of it. You don't like this line of work, and honestly, no one does.

    Riley continues to look down.

    IAN: The only satisfaction we get is knowing that we saved someone, but did we ever save ourselves. You have a life you want, and then you have the real world. The real world frightens you. It's in your nightmares; your subconscious.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? HOTEL ? HALLWAY ? NIGHT

    You see Riley running quickly down the hallway, wearing a desperate face.

    IAN: (V/O; from earlier) You want to live a normal life with people you love, you just ? you just don't how.


    Riley reaches a door and quickly knocks on it.

    IAN: (V/O) If you want it, then go to it. It's as simple as that.

    The door opens and Marie is standing there, confused and tired. She perks up a bit when she sees Riley.

    MARIE: (smiling) Riley? What are you doing ??


    Riley rushes in and starts kissing Marie; she embraces it. They roll into the hotel room, and Marie shuts the door on the way.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? SAM'S HOUSE ? KITCHEN ? MORNING

    INT ? SAM'S HOUSE ? LIVING ROOM ? MORNING

    Sam runs in to see Riley and Marie walking in, giggling and kissing. Sam looks mad.


    SAM: What are you doing?


    They stop laughing, and Riley turns to Sam.


    RILEY: What?

    SAM: This is my house! You can't just waltz in!

    RILEY: Okay, calm down. Chill.

    SAM: This is breaking and entering!


    RILEY: Calm down!

    SAM: No! This is my house, now! Back off!

    RILEY: Okay, I'm sorry.

    Sam calms down.


    SAM: Okay, good.


    It is awkward.

    SAM: I need to go get some milk.

    Sam starts walking to the door but Marie stops her.


    MARIE: (smiling) I'll go with.

    SAM: Why?


    MARIE: Spending some quality time with someone I'll be working with a lot.

    SAM: (giving in) Um...okay.

    Sam walks out and Marie follows her. Riley quickly stops her.

    RILEY: What are you doing!?

    MARIE: Getting to know her more.

    Marie walks out.

    CUT TO:

    EXT ? STREET ? MORNING


    Sam and Marie are walking down the street.

    MARIE: So, how long have you known Riley?

    SAM: (sighing) A long time.

    MARIE: Cool...

    Beat.

    MARIE: (making small talk) Riley is awesome. He's so nice and ?

    Sam laughs.

    MARIE: What's so funny?

    SAM: (smiling) You said he was nice.


    Sam walks to The Mart of Best Buys, an electronics store, and Marie looks confused.

    MARIE: I thought you wanted milk.

    SAM: Yeah, but I also want to get in on a cool sale.

    INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? MORNING

    SAM: There is no sale.

    MARIE: But you said ?

    SAM: I lied.

    Sam continues to look around.

    MARIE: (mad) Now, what's your problem!?

    SAM: What!?

    MARIE: Just cause you and Riley didn't work doesn't mean you have to take it off on me!

    SAM: Okay, just chill!

    ACT I

    CUT TO:

    INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? MORNING

    You see 11 people walking towards the front of the store, frightened. Two of them are Sam and Marie.

    MARIE: (whispering; to Sam) Why aren't we fighting back?

    SAM: (whispering) They have guns.

    Now there is only one man at the front of the store with a gun. The other two are not there anymore. Gunman #1 is still eying everyone down. You hear one lady crying; she is scared.

    GUNMAN #1: (to the lady) Shut up!

    The lady stops crying but looks up at Gunman #1, terrified.

    LADY: Please don't hurt us.

    The gunman is getting mad and points his gun directly at the lady, who then begins crying again.

    GUNMAN #1: I want you to shut up!

    Beat.

    GUNMAN #1: (to everyone) All of you! Do what we say and you might not get killed!

    Everyone suddenly becomes silent as the other two gunmen come back, pushing two women, scared.

    GUNMAN #1: (to the other gunmen) These are the only ones who got away?

    GUNMAN #2: There was another, but she tried to run...we shot her dead.

    Sam perks up when she hears that, suddenly scared.


    GUNMAN #1: (sighing) Who was she?

    GUNMAN #3: She said she was Terry Sheen.

    GUNMAN #1: (shaking his head) We don't need her. She's just a bystander.

    A man sitting on the ground in jeans and a blue T-Shirt looks confused at what they're saying.

    MAN: What do you mean!?

    Gunman #1 turns to the man and points his gun at him. The man closes his eyes in sadness and shock.

    GUNMAN #1: What's your name?

    The man opens his eyes and looks up at Gunman #1.

    MAN: Lance.

    GUNMAN #1: Full name.

    MAN/LANCE: Lance Tomin.

    GUNMAN #1: (smiling) Hello, Lance.

    Gunman #1 reaches into his pocket and takes out a "Hi, My Name Is..." sticker and tosses it to Lance, looking confused.

    GUNMAN #1: (smiling) My name's Thomas. Put that sticker on and write your name on it.

    LANCE: I don't have anything to write with.

    Gunman #1 takes out a few more stickers and a pen. He tosses the pen to Lance, and Gunman #1 puts on one of the stickers, writing "Thomas" on it. He tosses the other gunmen stickers and the rest of the stickers go to the other hostages. There are 13 hostages overall. They are all writing and putting the stickers on.


    MARIE: (scared; confused; to Sam) Why are we doing this? What's the point?

    SAM: (softly) Don't know. They must have an agenda other than money. They want to know who we are.


    Sam and Marie now have their nametags on, as does everyone else. It turns out than Gunman #1 is Thomas, Gunman #2 is John, and Gunman #3 is Tim. Thomas immediately turns around and points the gun at Sam.

    THOMAS/GUNMAN #1: Were you talking?

    Sam is scared, denying it.

    SAM: No, no! I wasn't, I swear.


    THOMAS: (shaking his head) People need to take us seriously.


    You hear murmurs from everyone else, obviously scared of Thomas shooting.

    SAM: I'm sorry!

    THOMAS: There needs to be an example.

    SAM: (pleading) Please...

    Thomas sees her nametag, and obviously knows the name. He knows he can't kill her. Sam looks confused as Thomas know looks conflicted. Thomas quickly turns to the lady talking to the gunmen earlier and shoots her twice in the stomach. Screams from the rest of the group, and Sam gasps. You can see from her nametag that her name was Jessica. And then there were 12.


    THOMAS: See, Jessica was the example. She's dead. No nonsense from any of you, got it!?

    People nod quickly in compliance.

    THOMAS: (smiling) Good.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? SAM'S HOUSE ? LIVING ROOM ? MORNING

    Riley is walking back and forth in the living room, worried. You see Graham walking downstairs, surprised at Riley being there.

    GRAHAM: Hey, Riley, what are you doing here?

    RILEY: (sighing) I came over here with Marie, and Sam went out to get milk, and Marie went with her.

    GRAHAM: How long has it been?


    RILEY: About a half hour! Don't know what could be keeping them.

    GRAHAM: (sitting down on couch) Call them.


    Riley pulls out his cell phone and calls someone.


    CUT TO:

    INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? MORNING


    The group of 12 is huddled on the ground with Thomas, John, and Tim hovering over them. You hear a cell phone ring and John looks confused. John holds his gun ready, and Sam realizes it's her phone. Tim can tell it's from Sam and points a gun at her.

    SAM: What are you ??

    TIM: Take out the phone.

    SAM: I don't have ?

    John points his gun at Sam, also.

    JOHN: Take it out.

    Sam gives in and takes out her cell phone and gives it to Tim. Tim answers it, still holding his gun against Sam.

    TIM: (on phone) Hello.

    Thomas grabs the phone away from Tim and puts the phone against his ear.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? SAM'S HOUSE ? LIVING ROOM ? MORNING

    Riley is still on the phone, confused.

    RILEY: Hello, who is this?

    THOMAS: (O/S; on phone) Thomas.

    RILEY: Where's Sam?!


    THOMAS: (O/S) She's fine, but she has three guns pointed at her.

    Riley looks shocked.

    CUT TO:


    INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? MORNING

    You see Thomas still on the phone.

    THOMAS: At The Mart of Best Buys, we're holding Sam Finn and eleven others hostage.

    RILEY: (O/S) Why are you telling me this?

    THOMAS: (smiling) So you can call 911, and get the police over here.


    RILEY: (O/S) You want the police?

    THOMAS: Yes, we do. We really do. Do this or Sam Finn dies.

    Thomas hangs up the cell phone and throws it on a counter. Thomas points his gun at the group of 12.

    THOMAS: I want all your cell phones!

    The group, terrified, throws their cell phones to the ground. Thomas stomps on all the phones, destroying them, and picks up Sam's phone.

    THOMAS: (referring to Sam's phone) This will be how we communicate to the police.


    Thomas tosses the phone to John.

    THOMAS: (to John) Call 911, just incase that man on the phone doesn't.

    JOHN: Yes.

    THOMAS: Remember to tell them to call us back on that number.

    JOHN: Will do.

    John walks off for a moment, and Thomas looks over the group again.

    THOMAS: (smiling) This will be fun.


    CUT TO:

    INT ? SAM'S HOUSE ? LIVING ROOM ? MORNING


    Riley slowly hangs up, and Graham looks strangely at Riley.

    GRAHAM: Who was it, Graham? What's Sam doing?


    RILEY: Get the group together?

    GRAHAM: What? Why?

    RILEY: (yelling) Get them over to the warehouse! Now!

    Graham is scared, but knows it's serious and responds. The camera zooms in on Riley's mad face.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? MORNING

    Tim is writing something down on a piece of paper, looking up at the hostages every few minutes.

    THOMAS: Do you have all of their names down?

    TIM: (nodding) Got ?em.

    THOMAS: We're looking for four different people. Do you have them?

    JOHN: Check the other list!

    TIM: (mad) I'm checking!

    CUT TO:

    EXT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? MORNING


    You see many different police cars arrive at the store, clogging up the street. Police get out quickly, guns in the air.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? MORNING

    John is looking out the window.

    JOHN: (to Thomas) They're here.

    THOMAS: Follow me!

    Beat. The hostages don't know what to do. Thomas points his gun at them.

    THOMAS: Get up!

    Everybody stands up.

    TIM: What about the list?

    THOMAS: Keep checking it, but they're here, and we can't be out in the open!


    Tim nods.

    TIM: We're moving back here! Move it!

    Thomas, Tim, and John lead the hostages to a back door that says "Employees Only", and they go there to see a great, white hallway. They keep walking till they reach another door, and they go in it.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? BREAK ROOM ? MORNING

    The room is a break room with a TV, radio, and different tables and chairs.

    THOMAS: Sit at one of the tables!

    Sam and Marie sit down at the same table. Each table sits five people. Meaning, there are two tables of five and one table of two people.

    THOMAS: (John) Barricade the door.

    John goes into the hallway to barricade the door. Tim is still checking the list.

    TIM: This is not good.

    THOMAS: (curious) What is it!?

    TIM: We need four people.

    THOMAS: Yeah.


    TIM: Only three of those people are here.

    THOMAS: What? Who's missing?


    TIM: A man named Tony Tonico. We need to find him.

    Thomas looks like he's getting more and more angry.

    THOMAS: Crap!

    Sam's phone, in Thomas' possession, begins to ring. Thomas answers, smiling.

    THOMAS: Hello.

    MAN: (O/S) Are you the one holding twelve people hostage?

    THOMAS: (smiling) It looks like you got my number.


    CUT TO:

    EXT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? MORNING

    The man on the phone looks like the boss of the police. He is wearing a police uniform and is negotiating with the hostage-takers. He has black hair and is tall and muscular. He looks serious, but like he can also be sensitive to the hostage-taker.

    MAN: Please let them go.

    THOMAS: (O/S; laughing) What is your name?

    MAN: (calm) William. But, you can call me Bill.

    THOMAS: (O/S) Okay, Bill. Let me ask you a question. I take 12 people hostage...why would I just hand them over?

    MAN/BILL: Because then no one gets hurt.

    CUT TO:

    INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? BREAK ROOM ? MORNING

    THOMAS: (yelling) But that's what you don't get! I don't care about peace and calm and all that shit! I care about what matters to me, and that's it!

    BILL: (O/S) And what matters to you?

    THOMAS: (serious) Tony Tonico.

    BILL: (O/S)

    THOMAS: (shouting) Tony Tonico! Get him outside this building, and fast. Don't bring him in here; just bring him to where you are.


    CUT TO:

    EXT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? MORNING

    BILL: Why do you want him?

    CUT TO:

    INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? BREAK ROOM ? MORNING

    THOMAS: It doesn't matter! You just need to bring him here. Or else.

    Beat.

    THOMAS: In 30 minutes, someone dies. After another 30 minutes, another hostage dies. 15 minutes later, another person dies. 15 minutes after that, another person dies. 10 minutes after that, another, and 10 minutes after that, another. Five minutes after that...

    Thomas looks extremely evil for one second.

    THOMAS: They all die.

    Beat.


    THOMAS: In an hour and 55 minutes, they will all die unless you get me Tony Tonico!

      CUT TO:

      INT ? WAREHOUSE ? MORNING

      You see the group gathered around the table: Riley, Graham, Intank, John, Ryan, Salomie, Heather, and Dean.

      DEAN: Riley, what are we doing here?


      RILEY: Sam and Marie have been taken hostage by three men in The Mart of Best Buys.

      INTANK: (shocked) What!?

      Graham looks down, saddened, because he already knew this.

      SALOMIE: (worried) Why!? How!?

      RILEY: (trying to stay calm) I don't know why.

      DEAN: I used to work there.

      GRAHAM: Where?

      DEAN: The Mart of Best Buys.

      Riley is getting really interested by this new news.

      RILEY: Seriously?

      DEAN: (nodding) Yeah.


      INTANK: Are there any other entrances other than the front door?

      DEAN: (thinking) I don't know.

      RYAN: Dean, you have got to think.

      DEAN: (aggravated) I am!


      RILEY: (staying calm) Calm down.

      DEAN: Let me think.

      Riley nods, and stands up. He walks out of the warehouse, and Ryan sees this. He decides to follow him.

      CUT TO:

      EXT ? WAREHOUSE ? MORNING

      Riley walks out and leans on the side of the building. He closes his eyes, obviously angered and about to go crazy, but holding it in. You hear the door open and Riley opens his eyes. Ryan walks out and sees Riley.

      RILEY: What are you doing here?

      RYAN: I just thought I would check on you.

      RILEY: I don't need a check-up, Ryan.

      RYAN: I think you do.

      RILEY: (getting mad; unleashing anger) No, I really don't!

      RYAN: (seeing into Riley's heart) I know you're hiding back your anger, and anxiousness, and ?

      RILEY: Shut up!

      RYAN: I mean, your ex-wife, and your pregnant girlfriend are being held hostage ?

      RILEY: I said ?

      RYAN: And there's no way you're this cold-hearted, I mean, you must have feelings!

      RILEY: (getting in Ryan's face) I will ?

      RYAN: I know you're mad, and think I'm the one at fault and all, but I'm not! You're just holding everything in!

      Riley is getting extremely angry.


      RYAN: (shouting) You can't just hold everything in!

      Riley punches Ryan, and Ryan falls to the ground. Riley is shocked, and Ryan looks up to Riley, smiling.

      RYAN: See?

      Riley is shocked, and less angry now.

      RYAN: Don't you feel better?

      CUT TO:

      INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? BREAK ROOM ? MORNING

      Sam and Marie are still sitting at the tables. You can see through the windows that Tim, Thomas, and John are in the hallway. The hostages are left alone, with the door locked. They can talk. The three other people at Sam and Marie's table are all male. One has black hair, while the other two have brown hair. One of the brown-haired men is rather large, and the other one is skinny. The black haired man is also skinny.

      BROWN HAIRED MAN: We have to get out of here.

      Sam looks up at the man, surprised.

      SAM: What?

      BROWN HAIRED MAN: They can't hear us; it's our chance.

      LARGER MAN: He's right; we have to!


      SAM: What's your name?

      BROWN HAIRED MAN: I'm Lewis.

      LARGER MAN: And I'm Aaron.

      BLACK HAIRED MAN: Ben.

      Sam begins nodding.

      MARIE: (to Sam) What are you thinking?

      SAM: Shut up.

      MARIE: What?

      SAM: You're pissing me off! I just can't talk to you. So, shut up.

      BEN: Stop bickering!

      The people at the other table are too scared to move.

      LEWIS: Let's go make a run for it.

      SAM: (sighing) No. Seriously...no.


      LEWIS: We ?

      SAM: Don't be an idiot. Or else you'll get killed.

      This scares Lewis.

      CUT TO:

      INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? HALLWAY ? MORNING

      You see the hallway where Thomas, Tim, and John are. They are pacing, waiting. John looks at his watch.

      JOHN: It's been 29 minutes.


      THOMAS: I've waited long enough.

      TIM: What?

      Thomas reaches for the phone and dials a number.

      THOMAS: (on the phone) Hello, Bill.

      BILL: (O/S) Thomas, are you ready to let the hostages go?

      THOMAS: Do you have Tony Tonico?

      Beat.

      BILL: (O/S) No.


      THOMAS: It's been 30 minutes. So, now, someone dies.

      BILL: (O/S) No ?

      Thomas hangs up. He takes his gun out of his pocket and the trio walks into the break room.

      CUT TO:

      INT ? THE MART OF BEST BUYS ? BREAK ROOM ? MORNING

      The trio walks into the break room, and everyone looks nervous.

      TIM: It's been a half hour.


      You hear cries from people as Thomas raises his gun.

      THOMAS: I'm sorry. Didn't want to do this, but Bill made me.

      Thomas points his gun at man sitting at the last table with two people named Jamie. The man named Jamie looks scared.

      MARIE: (crying) Don't shoot him!


      Thomas looks over at Marie, as she cries, but then Lewis can't take anymore. Lewis jumps out of his chair and runs at Thomas. Lewis tackles Thomas, sending them both flying towards the ground. Thomas' gun goes rolling on the ground. Sam is shocked, and her eyes widen as she sees something.

      Tim raises his gun to Lewis.

      MARIE: (seeing this) No!

      THOMAS: (gasping) I guess it's Lewis' turn. (looking at his nametag) Lewis Graybar.

      Thomas looks to Tim, seeing if his name rings a bell.

      TIM: He's not one of the four.

      THOMAS: (nodding) Good. (to John) Get Lewis out of here please.

      Sam is shocked, and disgusted by how gruesome this is.

      THOMAS: (to the hostages) I'm sorry.

      HEATHER: Why is it ??

      RYAN: Let it go, Heather.

      Heather stops questioning as Ryan sits back down, and Riley stares at Dean.

      RILEY: Anything?

      DEAN: (thinking hard) No, I can't think of anything new.

      Riley sighs.


      RILEY: Then, I guess we'll just have to break through the front door. With enough guns, we could take them out.

      JOHN: Not without innocent people dying.

      RILEY: It's the only way.

      SALOMIE: No, it's not, Riley, and you know it. We could let the police take care of it, but you just don't trust them!


      RILEY: That's right! I don't trust them with the life of my unborn child!

      Salomie looks down, knowing that this is a huge thing.


      DEAN: (remembering; shouting) I got it!


      RILEY: (intrigued) What?

      DEAN: I just remembered that it's not just a store.


      INTANK: I'm not following you.

      DEAN: There are apartments above the store.

      GRAHAM: (understanding) This is great news.

      RILEY: I still don't understand.

      DEAN: (trying to explain it better) There are apartments above the store, and there is a fire escape ladder.

      Riley finally begins to get it.

      DEAN: We go up the fire ladder, break into the apartments, and go down to the store to take out the three hostage-takers.

      HEATHER: What about the apartments? There are people living there!

      DEAN: (annoyed with Heather; yelling) There's no one living there! The owner doesn't rent them out!

      HEATHER: (defensive) You don't need to yell ?

      RILEY: Guys, stop!

      Beat.

        NINA: (looking up) Valerie! Valerie Imani. Call her Valerie. Or Val. Don't be so...professional.

        Kaia looks down, embarrassed.

        NINA: (confused) What about the list? There are three other people on the list. They are enemies of I.S. and they have to be killed. Some of their relatives are hostages, and you know that! We're supposed to use the relatives as leverage, to get our enemies on that list, and kill them!


        VALERIE: (O/S) That plan's over. Tony Tonico is dead. A big threat to I.S. And now Graham will be dead. That's enough for now. Call them off.

        AARON: What!?

        THOMAS: I'm sorry.

            FEEDBACK IS GOOD!!!!

            TRIVIA:

            • This episode was the shortest episode of the season yet, moving down from 50 pages, to 45 pages, with this episode being a mere 40 pages long. Sorry, but there was no more story left to tell. Had to end where it ended
            • We'll be seeing more of Pyro next episode! Also, Kat from the Virtual Season East Wick will show up next episode with a surprise
            • A HUGE filler filler episode! Almost nothing to advance the story happened, Tony Tonico will never be seen or heard of again. The only major story points we saw in this episode were Nina/Kaia's relationship, Sam and Marie learning to accept each other, and Riley's emotions with Ryan. Those were the only real things happening here: except for the end. Like I just said, the end is majorly important.
            • See ya soon!
