Episode 4 “I’m back”
Hearing the alarms and commotion outside their cell, Ventriloquist and Scarface begin to realise something is happening.
Anna goes to the cell, leaving Scarface on the bed.
Anna: What do you thinks going on?
(someone runs past the cell, followed by several others. Then the cell gate opens.)
Anna: What the heck?
Scarface: It’s a breakout toots.
Scarface: You know, people – are- breaking – ou-
Anna: I know what a breakout is –
Scarface: Then why ask.
Anna: It doesn’t matter. What do we do?
Scarface: What do you mean what we do! We leave come on. Grab the knife under the mattress.
(She looks and finds a home-made crafted knife)
Where did you get this?
Scarface: I sneaked the parts from the canteen and made it.
Anna: What for?
Scarface: What for? What do you mean what for? To protect ourselves. Grab it and let’s go!
Anna grabs Scarface and the knife and begins to rush out. Trying to dodge all the fast paced maniac inmates also rushing.
Scarface: Yes!Yes! Almost there toots.
Anna has a sudden realisation and stops.
Scarface: What are you doing?! We’re almost out.
Anna: Marry me?
Anna: Please. If we don’t do it now. We never will.
Scarface: Anna this isn’t the time –
Anna: I don’t want to go back into the world unless I’m married to you.
Scarface: It’s not that simple –
Anna: I’ll do anything, I love you.
Anna: Of ocurse.
Scarface: I want you to make a sacrifice, to prove you love me
Anna: I’ll sacrifice anything for you!
Scarface: Good, because I want a human sacrifice.
Anna: What do you mean?
Scarface: I want you to kill someone.
Scarface: Kill someone. Without me, without help. You have to kill someone all ‘g’y yourself. And you have to want to.
Anna: I don’t-
Scarface: That’s how this works. That’s what you must do.
Anna pauses and thinks for a moment. Scarface is convinced she’ll say no and they’ll be out in no time.
Anna: I said okay.
Scarface: You have to want to, that’s the only way it’ll work.
Anna: I do.
Scarface: Say it.
Anna: I want to kill someone.
Scarface: Right, well. Let’s go then.
Anna and Scarface are now in Arkham’s chapel, at the altar. Scarface has just completed part of the martial ceremony. He explains now what Anna must do.
Anna: So now I kill someone
Anna: And pour the blood over myself to complete the sacrifice, to prove I …killed someone.
Anna: We’re married. *sighs*
Scarface: Yes but…
Anna: Oh come back here to meet you, my husband.
Scarface: Yeah, great. Now hurry! I wanna be out of here in this lifetime okay toots!
Scarface: Anna! The knife!
Anna: Oh Yeah.
Anna rushes out but stops halfway and faces Scarface again
Anna: I love you.
Scarface: Love you too toots.
Anna rushes down corridors to find vandalised cells, people lying dead but no sign of any people. She runs past a cell to find one of the doctors, sobbing and hiding.
Doctor: Oh Anna! Thank God it’s you!
Anna: Why are you hiding?
Doctor: From the inmates. They began attacking people, and I just –begins sobbing
Anna: It’s okay shh.
Doctor: I was so scared! Thank god you’re okay though. Did you hide too?
Anna: Yes, I –
Doctor: Where’s the dummy you always have? Erm – Scarface?
Anna remembers why she was in here in the first place and how the doctors felt about her discussing Scarface.
Anna: He’s gone. I left him behind.
Doctor: Wow, right. Okay, we can’t stay here come on.
As they are walking cautiously, the Doctor in front and Anna behind, she has doubts as the doctor is casually talking to Anna.
Doctor: Y’know Anna, I always liked you. You were never bad, or horrible, just misled and –
The doctor’s voice begins to fade as Anna thinks. She doesn’t think she can kill him. The sound becomes muffled around her and we hear Anna’s internal thoughts as the doctor continues.
Anna: I can’t do it. He’s so nice, and wants to help me. I can’t kill him. But I’ll lose Scarface, just as we’re marrying? But I can’t. I’m not evil; I’m not bad I just can’t.
As she thinks, it soon comes to abrupt stop and she’s back in reality as she hears Scarface’s name.
Doctor: Just Scarface.
The doctor stops to look at Anna behind him.
Doctor: I’m glad you’ve come to your senses about that dummy.
He continues to walk.
Doctor: It was absurd to believe he was real.
Anna whispers to herself.
Anna: He is real
Doctor: The weird obsession you had.
Anna whispering: It’s love.
Doctor: It was a psychological obsession with him, thinking that HE made you do those things, A way out of reality.
Anna *whispering* but he did, he made me do it all.
Doctor: When it was just you.
Anna: It wasn’t.
Doctor: But now you have come to terms –
Anna: *whispering* It wasn’t me-
Doctor: You can start the process to recovery
Anna: *whispering* I’m good
Doctor: And fully get better
Anna: whisper* I was good.
Doctor: And put this whole fake dummy situation behind you.
Anna launches at the doctor forcing him to the ground and begins to stab him repeatedly.
Anna: HE’S REAL! HE WAS REAL! HE MADE ME DO IT! HE IS REAL! HE LOVES ME! HE’S REAL!
Anna stops and begins to breath heavily. Something has changed in her. She pours blood onto herself and enjoys it, the slowly stands up and licks the knife. She makes her way back to the chapel.
Covered in dry blood she arrives at the chapel.
Anna: My love! I did it! We’re married…my love?
No one answers.
She looks for him but he is gone.
Anna runs in search for him looking in cells and corridors. She can’t find him, she rushes back to her own cell to find him lying face down. She goes to him
Anna: Scarface, why did you leav-
As she picks him up she see’s that he is broke and unanimated.
Anna: Scarface? No! Please? Talk to me!
She begins to cry, after a moment she rushes up grabbing him and runs. She runs to the kitchen area, grabbing a knife, nails and glue. As this happens, Anna’s back is facing the camera. She begins to cut half of her hair jagged and uneven. She then smashing Scarface on the ground and collects some of his wooden parts and thins them out. She begins to cut half her face and then grabs the wood gluing and nailing some parts into her face.. As she does so, she lets out an insane laughter. She slowly picks up Scarface’s bow tie and puts it on. Turning slowly around to face the camera and show her face we see half has became “Scarface”.
Scarface: I’m back.
