1. INT. Secret Underground Base of shieldwatch. The base is located beneath New York City.

HAMMER stands to the left of panel JOHN to the right. They are both looking through one-way glass into a plain white interrogation room. A steel table sits in the centre of the room. JULIET sits handcuffed to a steel chair on the right of the table; DEAD OF NIGHT sits opposite her. A thick steel door is situated behind DEAD OF NIGHT. It is currently closed.

         HAMMER 1:
This is her. She crashed in some kind of escape pod in the Hudson. This thing has got tech onboard we’ve never seen before.

HAMMER 2:
The pods down in the labs, we are still running tests on it.

JOHN:
What’s any of this got to do with me?

2. Close up on HAMMER.

         HAMMER 1:
Shieldwatch satellites picked up an anomaly just outside of Earth orbit before she crashed.

HAMMER 2:
The portal she came through, it’s magical in origin. That’s why you’re here Strange. We need to know what she has to do with it. We need to know why she is here.

3. Close up on JOHN

         JOHN:
         So what is Trent doing in there with her?

4. Cut to INT interrogation room. DEAD OF NIGHT sits on his side of the table to the left of panel, JULIET on the right.

         CAPTION HAMMER:
Like his methods or not, Dead of Night knows how to get answers out of people.

DEAD OF NIGHT
So you don’t wanna talk to me. That’s ok. I mean I can talk enough for two.
(Link)
DEAD OF NIGHT 2:
I know your type; you’re all quiet and mysterious.
(Link)
DEAD OF NIGHT 3:
But answer one thing for me at least. Watt would it take to get you to talk to me?

5. The door behind DEAD OF NIGHT has opened; standing in the doorway is LADY LIGHTNING (An amalgamation of Electro and Livewire) she wears her blonde hair in a tall Mohawk, the sides totally shaved, she wears a SHIELDWATCH uniform but the arms are cut off at the shoulders and bolts of electrical energy leap up and down her arms. Both LADY LIGHTNING and DEAD OF NIGHT are looking straight at JULIET and the reader smiling.

         DEAD OF NIGHT:
         How about some shocking questions?

  1. Apparently I'm not the only one who was feeling puns this week! I like the image of that final panel. Lady Lightning does not look like someone to take lightly. Alternatively, it looks like she has something of a short fuse!

  2. There is a new online app called "Ebook Glue" that turns blogs into Kindle e-books. Every new installment, I have to go backwards to remind myself where the story left. I can't wait to put the whole saga together and read as one piece. Every week, the tapestry grows and builds, and you do a great job developing every week's chapter.
    I gotta give you props for taking on this challenge. Keep up the great work.
