A black panel. Perhaps there's a way to tease a shadow lurking behind blackness. A tease of...the Shadow King?
V/O CAPTION: What are you seeing, David?
We're looking at a car smashed up against a tree. The front window is broken and there's a shadow of a person slumped over the wheel. Let's not make it too gory okay? Let's have the car be a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria.
We're in the car now and it hasn't crashed into the tree. There are two passengers. One is a woman wearing all white, EMMA FROST, and the other is a young girl--possibly her daughter--in a similar outfit.
V/O CAPTION: David?
Now a glitch. Same shot, but this time let's have the girl in the passenger turn into DAVID HALLER. The one as designed by Sienkiewicz. His hair is almost touching the top of the car.
From David's perspective: He's flying through the windshield, shattered glass all around him.
Still from David's perspective: he's looking at a giant pile of rocks that, presumably, he's about to be dashed across, because he's flown out of the window.
V/O CAPTION: It's okay.
1.7 CUT TO:
A hospital room where we see David on a bed and sitting next to him is a PSYCHIATRIST complete with Moleskine notebook and perfectly tailored suit.
SHRINK: It's just a dream, David.
CAPTION (V/O): In other news, known Mutant refugee Emma Frost died today in an apparent car accident.
