  • Dealing with three witches

    9.1
    This one was really exciting, having the motion all the time - first from the moment it started with getting them down there and then those lovely dialogs between chars - really great little moment for relaxation before the final big events.



    The sisters now know who they are and what they are able to do, so... they are giving their best to hurt others. But it does not look so bad as on history - Helen and Zellerman find something rather interesting - a totally new version of understanding the history.



    And those creatures - they are now back, wanting to take sisters back. Maybe the right thing but there is going to be a fight...moreless

    • (Danu and her sisters are floating, rotating in the air above the lab)
      Will: Ladies … pretty sure we have rules about … floating and stuff. (a strong wind howls, sparks fly, voices cry out and a computer near Will explodes) Whoa, whoa! What say you just come down and we talk about this?
      (explosions and sparks knock Will to the ground, the blast doors close, the Big Guy staggers and falls before Helen discharges an energy weapon and the Morrigan fall)
      Helen: That's quite enough of that.
      Will (lying on the floor, bleeding from the nose): I had everything under control. (passes out)

    • Henry: Witches, huh? It's been a while since we had to clean up from some of those. Hey, you must be the new guy. Henry Foss - weapons, tech support, phone guy, you name it. I either build it or fix it, hopefully not in that order.
      Will: Will Zimmerman.
      Henry: Yeah, heard about you. Well, not much actually, but I'm sure you're up for the task - more than the last guy anyway. Look at this, see that? I'm tellin' ya, women plus technology equals mess.
      Will: Hey, uh, don't take this the wrong way, but are you, uh … you know?
      Henry (stares and then barks): Nah, I'm just kiddin'. I am a normal, boring homo sapien, just like yourself. My great-great grandfather was Magnus' original weapon smith back in London. (whispers) It's all about nepotism, dude.
      Henry: Henry, is my lab operational?
      Henry: Not yet.
      Henry: Then I suggest you stop talking and go and fix it.
      Henry: FYI : around here, humans are second-class citizens.
      Henry: Go.
      Henry: Especially men.

    • Helen: Based on the supernatural forces at work here, I'd say you're lucky to be alive.
      Will:Yeah, I got nailed by three witches - a great story at my next medical conference.
      Helen: Is your bravado meant to be charming?
      Will: Isn't it?

    • Will: Okay. I saw them floating in the air, I watched them destroy the lab - with their minds, I guess. But as for them being the actual Morrigan, there's no way.
      Helen: The markings on the ring, memories of ancient battles … I'm entertaining the possibility.
      Will: Or they could just be three scared, lost, delusional women - albeit with some freaky powers - not famous witches from 1,200 years ago.

    • Will: We looked in that crypt for …?
      Helen: Elixirs.
      Will: Right … ones that could help you with your condition. And instead, we found three people in coffins - three people who are now claiming to be even older than you by a long shot.
      Helen: Hm-m, I see. So I'm imposing my personal agenda on the situation, hoping that these three women can somehow help me find a cure for my longevity.
      Will: It's understandable. If they were, in fact, 1,200 years old, they may hold the key to help …
      Helen: You can't possibly understand. Life without end is not a gift. It's a curse. It means loneliness, isolation. It means being less human.

    • Ashley: Hey.
      Will (startled): Oh, huh! You scared the crap outta me.
      Ashley: Because of my unbearable hotness?
      Will: God, you're a mess. Here, let me help ya. (begins cleaning wound So how's the shoppin' list goin'?
      Ashley: Havin' the time of my life. Did I miss anything?
      Will: Yeah, witches.
      Ashley (distantly): Cool.

    • Will: Hey, listen, um … I know you're all about keepin' up your mojo and not sharing things; but, I promise you, you're gonna be in a lot less pain, both physically and emotionally, if you just talk about what you're goin' through. That's all I'm sayin' … Okay?
      Ashley (grips Will's hand painfully): You ever look at a ghoul, a really nasty one, right in the eye before you send it packing? (squeezes harder, making Will grimace) You see one of two things. You see fear. It knows it's dead meat, and that's kinda sad. But others, the really bad ones … they never stop wanting to take you down, right up until the moment you pull the trigger. And those kills, they're the sweetest. And sometimes, when I nail something that mean and terrible, when I watch it die … I feel … (caresses Will's hand as if aroused) Well … it's hard to explain. But trust me - it's a thousand times more cathartic than lying on a couch, crying about how your life sucks … doctor (releases Will's hand, painfully).

    • Danu: I can only say how sorry I am that you were the ones who found us. We should never have been disturbed.
      Will: Why are you sorry?
      Danu: You were kind to us, never passed judgment on our actions.
      Will: You mean your memories of killing those men? I hate to tell you this, but memory is probably the most untrustworthy thing our minds have to offer.
      Danu: You shouldn't do this.
      Will: Do you want me to believe that you're evil witches from the middle ages? Danu, before your s0-called memories returned, you and your sisters were … kind, reasonable people. You said "please" and "thank you". So forgive me if I fail to believe that …
      Danu (drives Will to the ground with her mind): I remember who I am, who we are - what we've done. You just refuse to accept it. (Will gasps in pain) Battles were lost and won because of our presence. We were the bringers of pestilence that destroyed men's souls. My power when I act alone is but a tiny shard compared to when we three are as one. (Will writhes in pain) A thousand men marched on Badon Hill that morning - all were dead before nightfall, all without the touch of neither sword nor spear. And now that we are free, more will die. That is our purpose.

    • (Helen finds Will lying down)
      Helen: Ah … so that's what the couch is for.
      Will: Okay, you win - they're witches from the middle ages. What do we do with them?
      Helen: Keep them secure, study them, understand their power and help them if we can.
      Will (sighs): Look, I realize I don't have a lot of experience dealing with witches, but I'm not sure I have the time … or the talent to turn them into … productive members of society.
      Helen: Yes, well, our work does have its limitations.
      Will: You know what bugs me is that … before I jogged their memories, they seemed … normal, well-adjusted - not homicidal, life-sucking sorceresses who killed a thousand men at some place called Badon Hill.

    • Helen: What do we know about Morgan Le Fay?
      Will: Ah-h-h …
      Helen: She was an evil sorceress who was Arthur's enemy. Now, ask yourself: who would've written that?
      Will: Men?
      Helen: Men. Exactly. This is revisionist history. What if the Morrigan were not created to wreak havoc, but rather to restore balance to the world? It follows what other revisionist scholars have already uncovered through ancient history - patriarchal monarchies that were actually run by women, for example.
      Will: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Before you get all Da Vinci Code on me, how do you know that Morgan Le Fay wasn't just simply evil?
      Helen: I don't. But I do know - that throughout history, feminine energy never seeks to try to dominate, but rather tries to restore harmony to the world, to make it whole.

    • Danu: Henry?
      Henry (turns and grabs his head in pain): Oh!
      Danu: That's better.
      Henry: Oh! C'mon, please! Look, I'm just an employee.

    • Will: Okay. So Morgan Le Fay creates witches to do good, then Merlin captures them and uses them to hand Britain to Arthur?
      Helen: And then locks them away - keeping them alive in case they're needed in the future.
      Will: And the ghouls …
      Helen: They're an incorruptible army created by Merlin to ensure that the Morrigan would never be free again.
      Will: Well, no offense to Merlin, but he didn't do a very good job. I mean, if we can …
      (the glass above shatters and in rush many invading, growling Keepers)
      Helen: Move! (running) I should've predicted this, Merlin's army is reclaiming their prize.
      Will: Yeah, woulda been nice to have seen that coming.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Danu: When shall we meet again? In thunder, lightning or in rain? When the hurly-burly's done. When the battle is lost and won.

      This is a nearly verbatim quote from the opening lines of William Shakespeare's Macbeth:
      Thunder and lightning. Enter three Witches
      First Witch
      When shall we three meet again? In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
      Second Witch
      When the hurlyburly's done, When the battle's lost and won.
      Third Witch
      That will be ere the set of sun.

    • Will: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Before you get all Da Vinci Code on me, how do you know that Morgan Le Fay wasn't just simply evil?

      The Da Vinci Code is a notorious mystery novel by Dan Brown concerning a historical conspiracy involving Christian symbology and mythology. It was later made into a major motion picture starring Tom Hanks.
