SC1. EXT. CARDIFF BAY HARBOUR - NIGHT - 2014 [BENEATH THE SURFACE OF THE WATER, A SUNK WW2 GERMAN SUBMARINE IS SETTLED IN THE SILT. THE TOP IS PROPPED OPEN. A DIVER HOVERS ABOVE THE OPENING. THE DIVER ATTACHES AN HOURGLASS SHAPED OBJECT CONNECTED TO VARIOUS WIRES AND EXPLOSIVES TO THE INSIDE OF THE OPENING. ON THE WATER‘S SURFACE, A RED MOTORBOAT IDLES IN THE DISTANCE.] CUT TO: - SC2. INT. PRIVATE HOSPITAL ROOM - SAINT PAUL‘S HOSPITAL - DAY - VANCOUVER - 2014 [JONATHAN AETHERS; 35, LIES IN A COMA IN A HOSPITAL BED. WEARING HOSPITAL PYJAMAS, JONATHAN’S HOOKED UP TO VARIOUS LIFE SUPPORT MACHINES AT THE HEAD OF THE BED.] COLE JACOB BILLINGTON(V.O.) “Jonathan Aethers has lain in a coma in an Isolation Ward since nineteen twelve. His body, it’s like it’s frozen in time. He doesn’t age, he won’t die, but he’s not really living, either.” [DOCTOR BAILEY O’BANNION ENTERS.] COLE JACOB BILLINGTON(V.O.) “A bit more then a century ago, Jonathan set out to prove the existence of dark energy. He was laughed out of all the major British research institutions. The University College of London thought him a lunatic; he was anything but.” [BAILEY TAKES A LOOK AT THE VARIOUS LIFE SUPPORT MACHINES. BAILEY MARKS DOWN THE RESULTS IN A SMALL NOTEBOOK.] COLE JACOB BILLINGTON(V.O.) “In nineteen ten, signals got crossed; Jonathan was under the mistaken belief he’d been offered a position with the CPB; that we were setting up a lab for him. We’d never even heard of him as far as I knew. Jonathan spent the next two years working the docks of Bute for passage to Canada, arriving in Vancouver in nineteen twelve. Poor guy, there was no job for him.” [BAILEY PERFORMS A PHYSICAL EXAM ON JONATHAN.] COLE JACOB BILLINGTON(V.O.) “I thought Jonathan may have been on to something, so I did what I could to help him out. I was able to get a granting agency to provide funding for a private lab. I helped Jonathan set it up in a warehouse on the corner of West Cordova and Richards Street; where the Harbour Centre is now.” [BAILEY EXITS, CARRYING A SET OF PHYSICAL SAMPLES TAKEN FROM JONATHAN.] COLE JACOB BILLINGTON(V.O.) “The last time I spoke to Jonathan, he told me about a new machine he’d built. His aim had been to detect the presence of ‘dark energy’. The man was about a century ahead of his peers. The Time Line Investigation Unit in Bloomsbury, the Shropshire Patrol Company, the bases in Melbourne and Sydney; they all work off the foundational work of Jonathan’s core ideas. As far as the rest of the world is considered, the term ‘Dark Energy’ wasn’t coined until nineteen ninety eight by Michael Turner. Nowadays it’s considered to be one more basic component to our universe. Back then it wasn’t taken seriously by anyone.” [THE ERA CHANGES TO NINETEEN TWELVE. JONATHAN’S HOSPITAL PJAMAS REVERT TO AN EARLIER STYLE. THE LIFE SUPPORT EQUIPTMENT REVERTS TO AN EARLIER TECHNOLOGICAL LEVEL.] COLE JACOB BILLINGTON(V.O.) “Intrigued by his plans, I waited to hear back on the results. I hadn’t heard from Jonathan in days, I was getting impatient for news of his latest findings. Eventually, I decided to go see him. I found him lying on the floor of the warehouse.” [COLE JACOB BILLINGTON ENTERS. CHARLIE DENTON ENTERS, FOLLOWED BY DOCTOR BLAINE GIANCOMO. DIRECTOR TO THE CPB; CHARLIE IS IN HIS MID THIRTIES, POSH WELSH.] CHARLIE DENTON “Let’s set up an isolation ward, we don’t want this spreading to the other patients.

COLE, CHARLIE AND BLAINE ARE STOOD NEARBY. EMILY IS SAT AT THE DESK THAT WILL ONE DAY BECOME BRITTANY‘S. EMILY FOCUSES ON HER BOOKKEEPING DUTIES. TURNING, JONATHAN FACES COLE.] JONATHAN AETHERS “Cole, how did I get here? The last thing I remember, I was in the warehouse.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “What warehouse?” JONATHAN AETHERS “The warehouse you helped me get for my laboratory. You set it up for me.” [CHARLIE STEPS FORWARD.] CHARLIE DENTON “Your lab’s where it’s always been Jonathan. Down the corridor, past the med lab. There was never any warehouse.” JONATHAN AETHERS “No, but there was. I came here, thinking I had a position, and there was nothing. No job. I worked two years at the Bute docks in Cardiff to afford the passage, but there was nothing. Nothing until Cole worked out an arrangement with a granting agency to help me rent out a warehouse to do my work in. I was all on my own.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “That never happened. We’re glad to have you on our Team Jonathan. Your mind is amazing.” CHARLIE DENTON “He’s right lad, I’d a been a fool to turn you away. I know brilliance when I see it, you Jonathan are brilliant. You are just the man we need in this new century of ours.” [BLAINE LEADS JONATHAN TOWARDS THE MED LAB.] DOCTOR GIANCOMO “Come on lad, let’s go check you over to see what’s going on in that head of yours.” CUT TO: - SC4. INT. PRIVATE HOSPITAL ROOM - DAY - 1912 [JONATHAN LIES IN A COMA IN THE HOSPITAL BED. THE CENTURY PASSES AS THOUGH VIA TIME LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY. THE SCENE AROUND JONATHAN’S BED APPEARS TRANSPARENT.

ACROSS FROM BRITTANY IS SAT KARA. MEAGHAN IS SAT IN A STROLLER.] KARA “I’m worried about Meaghan’s father; he’s been selling his body to help me and Meaghan out. It feels wrong profiting off the avails of prostitution. Not to mention, am I breaking the law, accepting the cash he gives me? It goes to looking after Meaghan. Legally, he has to help out, seeing as he’s the father; but not at the expense of his self respect.” BRITTANY LONGFELLOW “It does pose a dilemma. Its perfectly legal for him to do that, but you inadvertently take on the role of a madam by accepting cash. But if you don’t accept the funds, he can be held liable for not looking after his financial obligation to his daughter. I have a friend dealing with that issue, selling their body due to a lack of better options. You can try to get him to come see me for career counselling. Its good that you realize that’s not a path you should take.” CUT TO: - SC6. INT. CPB PRIVATE LAB - SAINT PAUL‘S HOSPITAL - DAY - 2014 [BAILEY ENTERS FROM A HOSPITAL CORRIDOR. WE SEE THE WORDS ‘CPB PRIVATE LAB’ WRITTEN ACROSS THE DOOR. SAMUEL PETERS ENTERS BEHIND BAILEY. THE LAB IS SET UP WITH TABLES OF CHEMICAL VIALS, DNA SAMPLES AND COMPUTER MONITORS RUNNING QUANTUM SIMULATIONS. BAILEY TYPES A CODE INTO THE CLOSEST COMPUTER. A SIMULATED QUANTUM BURROWER TAKES SHAPE ON THE MONITOR. THE CREATURE IS A BLACK SLUG SHAPED LIKE A CRESCENT MOON.] DOCTOR BAILEY O’BANNION “We’ve finally got the technology to see what we’re dealing with here. I give you the Quantum Burrower’ Sam.” [SAMUEL STEPS UP TO SEE THE IMAGE ON THE MONITOR.] SAMUEL PETERS “That’s in Jonathan’s brain? Yeesh!” DOCTOR BAILEY O’BANNION “Technically its nested in the quantum foam making up the atoms forming his brain. This is why his telomeres are quantum locked onto one instant in time; the quantum foam creates a shield of timelessness.” CUT TO: - SC7. INT. RESTAURANT - NIGHT - VANCOUVER - 5080 [IFAN FENCIS IS SAT AT A TABLE. A GREY METAL WATER FOUNTAIN IS SET NEARBY IN THE CENTRE OF THE ROOM. WE SEE THE VIEW OF IFAN’S TABLE THROUGH A WINDOW FROM THE STREET. ACROSS FROM IFAN IS SAT CORA FENCIS. NEXT TO IFAN, ON HIS RIGHT IS SAT CAPTAIN MYRA BAINBRIDGE. IFAN, CORA AND MYRA HAVE PLATES OF ASPARAGUS AND HONEYED NECTARINES AND PINEAPPLE.] CAPTAIN MYRA BAINBRIDGE “I need to find a new research intern, since you’ve seconded Liz Carnegie.” IFAN FENCIS “Sorry about that, let’s just say she’s a family friend and leave it at that.” CAPTAIN MYRA BAINBRIDGE , “Are you enjoying Canada, Cora?” CORA FENCIS “This end of it, definitely. Must have been here before, in another life.” CAPTAIN MYRA BAINBRIDGE “Definitely.” IFAN FENCIS “I hope you don’t mind, feel free not to answer if you’d prefer not to Myra. I know people have different views on the quantum network uplinks. Have you had the memory grafts, connecting you consciously to your former lives?” CAPTAIN MYRA BAINBRIDGE “I have. I worked here in the city with the Commonwealth Protection Bureau twice. First as Emily during the original inception of the organization in the early twentieth century, then as Rebecca Jones at the end of the century.” IFAN FENCIS “Of course. Do you remember me?” CAPTAIN MYRA BAINBRIDGE “Should I?” IFAN FENCIS “Like Cora said, must have been here before.” [UNDER THE TABLE, IFAN TEXTS CORA ON HIS E-READER. CORA’S BLACK VINYL PURSE MAKES AN S.O.S. BEEP. CORA RETRIEVES HER E-READER FROM HER PURSE. CORA CLICKS ON THE MESSAGE APP. IFAN HAS SENT - ‘MUST BE THROWN OFF THE SCENT DUE TO OUR TEMPORAL DISPLACEMENT.’ CORA RETURNS THE E-READER TO HER PURSE.] IFAN FENCIS “I’ve read the historic job performance reviews for that era. Cole Billington really must not have noticed the connection between the two women at all. By all accounts, he was bonkers about Emily, and yet he despised Rebecca.” CAPTAIN MYRA BAINBRIDGE “I think the fact that Emily died of the flu, somehow that led to Cole deciding on a subconscious level never to open his heart to her essence again. He didn’t want to mourn her a second time.” IFAN FENCIS “That makes sense. He was miserable over Cecil’s passing, and he adored Emily.” [UNDER THE TABLE, WE SEE CORA’S HAND INTERTWINED WITH IFAN’S.] CORA FENCIS “Have you been following the recent ideological battles over the ethical status of the quantum memory uplinks Myra? On the one hand, we’ve got traditionalists who say if God wanted us to remember our former lifetimes, we’d be born with the memories. Some go as far as to claim the quantum net memories are fictional lies created either by the Devil or by some power elite. I’m never quite sure what these people think this mythical power elite plan to do with these imaginary memories.” IFAN FENCIS “People have been making paranoid claims about some power elite playing mind games through the storytelling medium for thousands of years. Before the Pacific inundation of Los Angeles hundreds of years ago when the Hollywood infrastructure collapsed and the film industry moved en-mass to Cardiff; kooks claimed the entertainment industry was run by Satan. Of course, Britain didn’t fair any better in those folks eyes; they accused the BBC of using subliminal images on behalf of the Illuminati.” CORA FENCIS “I never got that either, visual story telling is all about the messages we tell ourselves, the messages we want to communicate amongst groups, and the messages we want others to understand. If you don’t like the message being broadcast by a group of individuals, you always have the option of not watching the program. Unlike plot lines that disturb your sensibilities, due to violence or some such, silly things like the use of a pyramid or the all seeing eye are only there to unlock quantum memory codes in members of the artists’ soul clade.” CAPTAIN MYRA BAINBRIDGE “That truly shows us what the conspiracy theorists are afraid of. Art is about transformation, changing the world. At the heart of it all, the conspiracy theorists fear change, they want society to conform and stagnate. They’re Divisionists to their very core. They see respected artistes as a threat to their conformist view of life, because those with a wide viewership have a greater chance of instigating societal change on a micro level, individual to individual. If they’re very, very lucky, this eventually culminates in societal change on a macro level.” IFAN FENCIS “Of course, this societal change is all orchestrated behind the scenes from a source level, so when conformists enact a backlash to the forward movement of societal unity and diversity, the one their really rebelling against is God. I would not want to be on the man upstairs’ black list.” CUT TO: - SC8. EXT. BURRARD INLET - NIGHT - COAL HARBOUR - 1913 [BRAD AND DAVID REILLY, 19; TOSS A BALL BACK AND FORTH IN FRONT OF THE SHORE.

The city's vagrants have made a lot of noise pertaining to some monster preying on them." [COLE RUNS A HAND ALONG EMILY’S ARM.] COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “Oh?” [STEPPING FORWARD, CHARLIE HANDS COLE A STACK OF PAGES.] CHARLIE DENTON "We need you to go undercover amongst the hard luck cases, make them believe you are one of them, get their trust."

I’m moving up in the world, I’m on the fast track to a better life.” MIKE “How drunk are you Jacquelyn?” JASON BOWEN “Less than you’d think.” [LAUGHING, MIKE GETS TO HIS FEET.] MIKE “It was good seeing you Jacquelyn, perhaps another time eh?” [MIKE HEADS TOWARDS THE BACK OF THE PUB.

It was a time of war in the Human realm, a time when the whole world was in a mighty uproar. This war had been joined in common cause by both the bright court and the dark kin of Tom’s realm. It was not only the Germans that posed a threat to Britain’s shores, but also his own blighted dark kin. The shadow fae fought a secret war against the Bright Court, joined in common purpose with the Human monstrosities calling themselves Nazis. The same war was waged amidst Faery Courts of every other land. Where Humanity led, the Faery Realm followed. The same could be said for the Fae, intertwined so inexorably with Humanity, they could be said to be bound to Humanity’s soul. Indeed, double lives were lived, amongst Humanity and fae. The Fae were the inner darkness, as well as the shining brilliance of the Human soul. Humans are the planet’s smartest animal, they need the Fae, both good and bad, to remind them they are far more than just a mere animal.” [THE LIGHT WITHIN THE ANOMALY INCREASES IN BRIGHTNESS. THE GAMMA RAYS HIT THE OUTER EDGES OF THE ANOMALY. THE REBOUNDING CURRENT PUSHES OUT THE OUTER BOUNDARY OF THE ANOMALY. THE ANOMALY IS NOW DOUBLE ITS ORIGINAL SIZE.] REGINALD DESMOIRE(V.O.) “From infant to crone, from child to Maiden, from boy to warrior; there was a choice to be made. Light or dark, love or hate, freedom or slave. Each and every day, the choice must be made, the decisions of man would determine the reality of the future. Tom Mullaly would show them the way, he’d be the torch bearer to a better way. Born to darkness, fate seemingly sealed, Tom had chosen a better way, and in his example he’d show Humanity a better way. If Tom was very, very lucky, perhaps his message would get through to his own fellow Dark Kin. He’d grant them the knowledge that their fate was not yet sealed, they too could chose a better way.” [WITHIN THE ANOMALY, THE CENTRE BEGINS TO CONTORT. THE ANOMALY GROWS EVER BRIGHTER. THE NOSE OF A JET PLANE, CIRCA EARLY TWENTY FIRST CENTURY SLIDES THROUGH THE ANOMALY. QUANTUM LOCKED, THE PLANE REMAINS WITHIN THE ANOMALY. WITHIN THE ANOMALY, LIGHTNING FLASHES. THE PLANE IS BUFFETED BY A SURGE OF COSMIC WIND. BEYOND THE ANOMALY, ALL IS CALM; THE SUN RISES PAST THE HORIZON.] REGINALD DESMOIRE(V.O.) “The entropic force bound up in Humanity’s ever spiralling death wish of over-population and lack of sustainability could only be countermanded via the species’ connection to their fae brethren. From death, emanates new life; life everlasting, self perpetuating, never ending, never stopping. Without death, there could be no life. It was an unstoppable force, the snake devouring it’s own tail, infinity tossed upon the seas of life; the Ferry Man taking the coins of the dead.” [A CLUTCH OF FIVE JENNY GREEN TEETH RISE UP FROM A CROUCHED POSITION IN THE GRASS. THESE FIVE HAVE GREEN SKIN. THEY ARE LONG AND LANKY, THEIR BLACK HAIR REACHING THEIR ANKLES.] REGINALD DESMOIRE(V.O.) “Humanity no longer acknowledged their Fae kin, they’d forgotten that there was life, as well as death. The force of life the Fae held onto had been overcome by the death wish of the present leaders of the planet, and Humanity’s fight with their own darkness had taken the faery realm by storm. The wave of misery coming out of Germany rolled like A tsynami, right across the Borderlands, an inadvertent attack of shock and awe. Now both realms were in misery, neither able to counterbalance the other, the self perpetuating life force an ever present constant in the Faery realm smothered by Humanity’s death wish.” CUT TO: - SC19.

It was one of the Third Reich’s least abhorrent medical projects. It seems they mostly used organic material taken from voluntary recruits, during their physicals. Blood tests, that sort of thing. They were attempting to create a super soldier that would not age, would not die and would re- format himself in the event of injury. The ultimate superman, so sought after by the Nazis.” DIVER ONE “There’s one big problem with that, DNA hadn’t been fully mapped until nineteen fifty three and telomeres weren’t known about until nineteen seventy eight. Any attempt to develop physical immortality would result in the creation of tumours. Which would then result in eventual death.” CECIL SMITH “Ah, now I understand the concept of The Face of Boe. But, it does show that the Human lifespan could conceivably continue for as long as that process took to occur. You ever read my partner’s books?

By my time, everything on the web was stored in the amino data cloud, by utilizing the process of quantum entanglement, my society was able to store vast swathes of information in the very building blocks of the physical universe. This thing’s qpu works off a quantum level holographic data storage hard drive. Meaning, the same physical space can be reused for an unlimited number of times. Fill it up once, fill it up once more without having to wipe the hard drive or purchase a backup. On Garconer Colony, children were given a personal e-reader at age five or six. These are built to last a Garconer lifetime, five hundred years. Humans gave them to their heirs, in their wills. This has a lifetime of study on it. To download new information; a book or a holo-series, you download directly from a payment kiosk, or attach an attachment to the machine. The system stores the entire archive of the adc on your hard drive each time it is accessed. Meaning, I have the entirety of the adc archive as of that final day in fifty one twenty.

I’m cross-referencing local finds with regional regenerative mythic cycles.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “Meaning?” CECIL SMITH “The Nazis were sneaking around Tiger Bay searching for some buried treasure they believed had some connection to Melchizedek, Merlin and Lludd Llaw Eraint during the war. They dreamt of Immortality; a dream foiled by the vagaries of time. As in, they were dreaming their evil schemes in the early forties, whilst the scientific breakthroughs they needed to get them anywhere took until the fifties through seventies. Wallace and Crick, and telomeres, respectively. I don’t think they found what they were looking for in the bay, either.” COLE JACOB BILLINGTON “What were they looking for?” CECIL SMITH “A lesser known legend states, Merlin was a poultice maker whom utilized an early form of antibiotics, mixed with particles of silver. Merlin was said to commune with Melchizdezek, whom gave him the knowledge of a regenerating medicinal therapy which he provided to Lludd Llaw Eraint at his court. The poultice was deemed un-Godly by the increasingly powerful religious authority, a tool of the beast and thus was placed in a silver box. The Nazis were searching for the box, which was said to be thrown into the sea near Cardiff. The legend has allusions in the tale of Prince Caspian.” [CECIL SCANS THROUGH THE CATALOGUE.
