I pray you'll be our eyes, and watch us where we go.

Lead us to the place, guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe

When stars go out each night,
eterna stella sei

The light you have

you are eternal star
Nella mia preghiera
Let this be our prayer
quanta fede c'e
when shadows fill our day

How much faith there's
Let this be our prayer

un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace, di fraternita

Scene 1

[Camera slowly fades in from opening credits to show that it is early morning. The camera pans around the airport before cutting inside to show Cloe asleep in her bed, her covers have been discarded and are in a heap on the floor. She is dressed in very little clothing and is covered in a blanket of sweet.]

(Camera zooms in on Cloe to show that she is having a restless sleep, a few coughs escape her slightly parted lips which then causes her to wake up)

(Sitting up Cloe covers her mouth as the coughing becomes more violent, as she becomes more in control she slowly moves her hand away from her mouth and on her hand is spots of blood.)

(Camera zooms in on Cloe’s face which has a look of shock)

Cloe: (Scared) Oh God!

(Calli shrugs as she looks up to Bray)

Calli: Well not really, I keep getting flashes, but nothing certain. Do you know what I mean?
Bray: Kind of.
Calli: I think that I'm this Danni... the one that everyone says I look like but to be honest, I'm not that sure. What do you think?
Bray: About what?
Calli: Do you think I'm anything like the Danni you once knew?

(Bray looks at Calli for the longest time)

As Alice mumbles in her sleep and rolls over, the camera pans to the other side of the bed and the figure turns over and we see that it is Ryan.]

(Ryan opens his eyes and looks around the room, a confused glow washing over his face)

Ryan: What, where am I?

(Alice mumbles and turns over so that she is facing Ryan, the colour fades from Ryan's face as he groans)

Ryan: Oh god...

May picks up the knife, holding it in one hand as she turns over her wrist and makes the motion as though she were slitting her wrists before she throws the knife against the wall.]

May: Oh god...

(The camera that had followed the knife turns back to show May bring her knees up to her chest as she starts to sob loudly. She picks up a picture of her and Salene that was on her bedside table and looks at it for a few moments before throwing it at the wall.)

May: You ruined everything. Life is a mess... all because of you. I just... just want it all to end. I want my life to be over!

[The camera pans to May's face as she pulls a blanket over her head and starts to cry again, before fading to black.]


Scene 6

[Camera fades in from black to show Cloe tucked up in bed, she has head propped up on her pillows and is flicking through an old gossip magazine, not really reading the stories inside. A knock at the door causes her to look up with interest]

(Camera pans around as Caleb enters the room, he offers Cloe a smile and walks towards the bed)

Caleb: How we feeling today Cloe?

Cloe: (Her smile fades) Like death…I can’t stop coughing and it hurts, I’m always tired I don’t understand what’s happening to me.

(Caleb walks closer to the bed and places a friendly hand on her shoulder before giving it a lightly squeeze)

Caleb: I’m no doctor Cloe and I’m sorry if I’m no help but I will pray for you, I will pray to my god maybe it will give us some answers , maybe he will cure you…I don’t know but having a little faith won’t hurt!

Lex: I could ask you the same thing.
Tai-san (frowns): Huh?
Lex: What's wrong? And please don't lie to me. I can see that there's something wrong!

(JOHN BARROWMAN - WHAT ABOUT US starts to play in the background)

Guess we've been talking too long
We know what we need
Separately

(Darryl studies Axel’s face and his smile fades from his own face)

Darryl: (Shakes his head) Please don’t….

You say the honeymoon's over
I don't wanna push
But what about us?

Darryl: (Getting upset) I don’t understand…

It's ringing in my head
It's not what you say
It's what you haven't said

(Darryl shakes his head as he walks over to one of the chairs and sits down)

Axel: Darryl please…I just need some alone time….please understand it’s not your fault!

So What about us?
What about love?
What about saying
That we'll never give up?
Don't wanna blame ya,
We're in danger
So what about us?

Darryl: (looks up) I love you!
Axel: (Nods) I know
Darryl: But you don’t feel the same…
Axel: (looks away) I’m sorry
Darryl: (stands up and shouts) Stop saying sorry!

Guess we've been trying too hard
We misunderstood
What's good for us
I'm tired emotionally inside
Night after night,
We fight till we cry

(Darryl jumps up and storms out the room ensuring to knock Axel on his way out)

I don't know what's wrong or right
Is every word you say
What's really on your mind?

(Camera stays on Axel as he crosses the room; he blows the candles out before he drops onto the bed and starts to cry)

So what about us?
What about love?
What about saying
That we'll never give up?
Don't wanna blame ya
We're in danger
So what about us?

(Camera cuts to the outside of the room where Darryl is slumped on the floor with his head resting on the wall with tears streaming down his face)

When we love,we lie
When we talk,we hide
Maybe I'm searching blind
I'm worn out,
Confused
What are we to you?
What are we doin'?
What are we doin'?

[Camera slowly pans out before fading to black]
