    NIGHTSHADE 2

    By

    Jeff Long


    Rough Draft 1.

    Completed on April 23rd, 2005.


    Open on:

    EXT. TOWN OF ST. WAINLUK – RANDOM STREET – NIGHT

    Two drug dealers are standing around, staying in the dark shadows of a building.

    DRUG DEALER 1
    Where the hell are they?

    DRUG DEALER 2
    They’ll be here.

    DUG DEALER 1
    We’re going to get busted, I know it. I just know it.

    DRUG DEALER 2
    Shut the fuck up.

    Suddenly car lights break through the darkness and head towards them. As the car gets closer, we see it’s a police car.

    DRUG DEALER 1
    Shit! I knew it, man! I fucking knew it!

    Drug Dealer 1 starts to run away, but Drug Dealer 2 grabs him by the shirt collar and drags him back.

    DRUG DEALER 2
    Don’t worry. Trust me.

    The cop car pulls up to a stop in front of the drug dealers and two cops get out and approach them.

    COP 1
    What’s going on here gentlemen?

    Drug Dealer 1 is fidgeting and is visibly scared.

    DRUG DEALER 2
    Oh not much. The usual.

    Cop 1 slides some money to Drug Dealer 2. The drug dealer takes a thick bag of something out of his jacket pocket and hands it to the cop.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK – ACROSS THE STREET – NIGHT

    We see MICHAEL BROWN, a 30-year-old in his car across the street from the drug deal that’s taking place. He has a camera out and is taking pictures of the scene. No flash comes from the camera as he takes the pictures.

    Michael lowers the camera so he can check to see how many more shots he can take. When he raises the camera back up to his eye and zooms in, he notices that one of the drug dealers is pointing in his direction. The two cops turn their heads and look.

    MICHAEL
    Shit.

    He drops the camera to the seat and starts the car. A window shatters as a bullet slams through and Michael screeches away from his spot, zooming down the street.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK – DRUG DEAL AREA – NIGHT

    Cop 1 holsters his gun and hands a radio to Cop 2.

    COP 1
    Radio in for backup. Not to Dispatch, though. You know who. Tell them that we’ve been…’discovered’.

    Cop 1 jumps in the cop car and speeds away after Michael’s car, turning on the sirens.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK – RANDOM STREETS – NIGHT

    Michael maneuvers his car around sharp corners and continues to speed away from the pursuing cop car. Suddenly he gets cut off when a second cop car screeches to a stop right in front of him, after having come from around a corner.

    Michael swerves his car and just narrowly misses the cop car. He drives up onto someone’s lawn and passes the car. He goes back onto the road after he passes it.

    He looks in the rearview mirror and sees three police cars giving chase, including the one that had just tried to cut him off. Before long, the cop cars have gained on him and are right behind him.

    MICHAEL
    Well if I’m going to go down, I’m not going to go alone.

    As he drives with one hand, he uses the other to open the glove compartment. His Private Investigator I.D. falls out among some of the junk. He reaches in and takes out a gun. He checks to see if it’s loaded, and closes the compartment.

    One of the police cars get next to him and slams into his car, causing it to swerve a little bit. Michael grits his teeth and aims his gun with his free hand, out his shattered window at the cop car.

    Before he can fire, the cop car explodes. Michael, in a state of shock, drives his car off the road and into a ditch. He hits the ground hard, causing the airbag to fly out into his face. He moans as he looks back to see how close the other cop cars are, and to see what the hell happened to the one that was right next to him.

    He sees the wreckage of the destroyed car, and then he sees one of the other cop cars slide across the road, sparks flying. Something has blown out the tires. Michael sees a figure dressed in black zoom by on a motorcycle. The last cop car ignores Michael and goes after the figure.

    MICHAEL
    Who the hell was that?


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK – RANDOM STREETS – NIGHT

    Nightshade zooms down the street on his custom motorcycle. It’s quite long for a motorcycle, all black, with a long windshield. The way that the motorcycle is built, Nightshade sits on a seat and leans forward so much so that he’s almost lying down. On each side is a white ‘N’. There are also two joystick controllers that are used to move the steering ‘wheel’. Nightshade is wearing his helmet.

    The motorcycle is also unbelievably fast as it easily outruns the cop car. However, he can’t allow such corrupt police to live. He screeches to stop and turns the bike around and zooms back the way he came, heading towards the cop car.

    As he nears the cop car, he presses a button on the top of one of the joystick handles. He swerves to the side at the last second, and just as he’s passing the cop car, a mini-rocket shoots out of one of the unused exhaust pipes that are located at the back of the side of the bike, and hits the cop car, causing it to explode.

    Nightshade presses another button and his motorcycle picks up quite a lot of more speed, in a very short amount of time. He disappears into the darkness of the night.


    Cut to:

    Opening credits role as the song ‘Fatal’ by The RZA plays. As the credits role, we see comic book versions of various scenes from the first movie, in chronological order. Some of them even have speech balloons and multiple panels per page. Once we see a few shots of that, we cut to black to show some credits, and then cut back to the comic. Do that until all credits are finished and the comic ends at the end of the first movie.

    Fade out.


    Fade in:

    INT. ST. WAINLUK HIGH SCHOOL – CLASSROOM – DAY

    ASHLEIGH MACDONALD from the first movie, now a bit older, sits in class. She is dressed like a Goth, now an outcast. She has a copy of her report card in front of her and we can see all the F’s on it. In the B.G. we can see her teacher handing other student’s their report cards. Ashleigh sticks hers in her bookbag and then puts her text book in, crumpling the report card down. She zips her bookbag up as the bell rings to end classes.

    She stands up and goes out into the busy halls. Two other girls approach her.

    GIRL 1
    Hey Ash, you wanna go to the mall?

    ASHLEIGH
    (Sadly)
    No, I’m not in the mood.

    GIRL 2
    Ohhh Ashleigh, baby. You need to let go of the past. It’s been a year. Don’t you think that if he was going to come back, he would have already?

    ASHLEIGH
    Shut up! Ok, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Just leave me alone.

    Ashleigh turns and rushes down the hall away from her friends.

    GIRL 2
    All I’m saying is that she needs to let go. He’s obviously not coming back, if he’s even still alive.

    Girl 1 nods her head in agreement.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK HIGH SCHOOL – DAY

    Ashleigh rushes out of the school, passing by CURTIS COATES, Scott’s friend from the first movie. Curtis also looks a bit messed up. His eyes are really red and his hair is messy. Ashleigh has tears in her eyes as she rushes away from the school.

    Curtis is tapped on the shoulder and turns around to face a druggie in his late 20’s named STEVE.

    STEVE
    Tonight’s the night, dude! Initiation into the Order. Are you ready?

    CURTIS
    Of course.

    STEVE
    Good man. I’ll come by and pick you up this evening at around 7.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK HIGH SCHOOL – ACROSS THE STREET – DAY

    Nightshade, while smoking a cigarette, watches Ashleigh run out from the school and pass Curtis. He is hiding behind a row of trees and looking through the branches. He sees Curtis talking to Steve but is too far away to hear anything.

    He takes a puff on his smoke and breathes out. He throws it to the ground and squishes it with his boot. He lifts his helmet up over his head and turns around and gets on his motorcycle.

    ‘Painted on my Heart’ by The Cult begins to play as Nightshade starts his motorcycle and drives off. He turns onto another street and ends up driving past Ashleigh. As he does, we go to a slow-mo shot of Nightshade turning his head to look at Ashleigh, and Ashleigh turning her head to look at the figure.

    Of course she can’t see past the helmet, and they both move their heads back forward again. We go back to a regular shot as Nightshade zooms past.


    EXT. WOODS – DAY

    Nightshade slows the motorcycle down as he approaches a dirt path in the woods just outside of town. He goes down the dirt path that disappears deep into the woods, and soon enough he pushes a button on his motorcycle console and part of the ground moves down, forming a downwards ramp into a hidden base.

    Nightshade descends down the ramp and drives down an underground metal hallway, the ramp closing behind him.


    INT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE – LIVING ROOM

    Nightshade walks into his base. It’s made to look like the inside of a one-story house with a few misc. rooms that includes a Rec. Room, living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, gym, and workshop. Nightshade walks into the living room and pulls his helmet off, dropping it to the floor. He removes his sunglasses and mouth cloth and drops those as well.

    Nightshade walks into the bathroom and proceeds to wash the black face paint off his face. He walks back out and hears a noise coming from the workshop. The song ends.

    Scott walks through his ‘house’ to the workshop and sees LEONARD POTHIER, his new tech, welding something. Leonard is slightly older then Scott. Leonard turns off the wielder and lifts up his welding mask.

    LEN
    Ahh, you’re back from your daily spying, I see.

    SCOTT
    It’s not spying, Len. I’m keeping an eye on her. To make sure nothing happens like last time.

    LEN
    Call it what you want, but it’s still spying. Speaking of which, I thought you were leaving your old life behind?

    SCOTT
    I did. But as Nightshade, I have a duty to protect the innocent. And she falls into that category.

    LEN
    You just miss her.

    SCOTT
    (Changing the topic)
    What are you making?

    LEN
    Better material to add to your bike. If it comes out like I plan, it should be almost indestructible.


    Scott smiles.

    SCOTT
    With me behind the wheel, it already is.

    LEN
    What’s this? A smile? I don’t think I’ve seen one of those from you before.

    SCOTT
    More rare then Bigfoot, it is.

    LEN
    I think I like this You better then that moody cranky You that seems to dominate your life.

    SCOTT
    I’ve got a job to do and it won’t get done with smiles and laughter.

    LEN
    No, but it couldn’t help to try doing that once in awhile.

    Scott takes out a pack of smokes from his jacket and takes a cigarette out and lights it.

    LEN
    That’s a nasty habit.

    SCOTT
    What? I smoke when I’m stressed.

    LEN
    Well so do I, so hand me one.

    Scott smiles again as he hands Len a smoke.


    INT. PUNK CLUB – MAIN ROOM – EVENING

    This is the same punk club from the first movie. ‘Slow Motion’ by Nickleback is playing over the speakers. The room is filled with thugs, street punks, druggies, and criminals of all kinds and all ages. Throughout the room are even some ‘dirty’ cops mingling within the crowd. Heavy cigar and cigarette smoke clings around the room. There are dozens of tables set up, some used for various card games, others used for dealing drugs, and there were booth seats for just sitting and conversating. There are no windows or anyway for outside light to shine through. There is a bar set up at one end of the room and nude dancers dancing in cages. Strobe and neon lights flash all over the room.

    Steve and a group of other people around his age are all sitting at a booth table, drinking and smoking. Curtis is also sitting at the table, across from Steve. He is by far the youngest in the group.

    STEVE
    As you can tell, we normally don’t initiate people at such a young age as you, however you’ve done quite a lot of business with us, and I feel it’s time you are rewarded.

    As Steve says this, he takes out a thick bag of weed and lays it on the table. One of the other people in the group takes the bag and starts rolling joints.

    STEVE
    Our Order is not an easy one. It will dominate your life, which means no school.

    Curtis snorts.

    CURTIS
    Not a problem. I failed last year and I’m flunking again this year anyway.

    STEVE
    So I’ve been told. Ever since your friend ran away.

    CURTIS
    He didn’t fuckin’ run away. I knew him and he would never have ran away. He was killed. I know it. And if I ever find out who, I’ll get my revenge.

    STEVE
    Sorry to hear that, but we’ve all lost people over the years. For instance, my parents died when I was still in high school. Of course if they hadn’t been a couple of assholes, then maybe I wouldn’t had killed them, but oh well.

    CURTIS
    So what do I have to do to get initiated?

    Steve smiles as he takes a joint and passes it to Curtis, who accepts. He takes another one for himself.

    STEVE
    Quite easy. Kill someone. Kill someone of our choosing, and you’re in.

    Curtis’ face quickly drops his smile and goes serious.

    CURTIS
    You’re joking, right?

    STEVE
    Not at all. We’ve all done it. You’re an honorary member until we pick a target for you. Then after you kill the target, you’re a full-fledged member.

    We can tell by Curtis’ face, that he’s suddenly having very serious doubts.

    CURTIS
    I’m not too sure about…

    He gets cut off as the door slams open with such force that everyone in the room goes quiet, the music soon following. Standing in the doorway is a young woman in her late twenties, wearing a business suit. This is DANIELLA BECKER. All around her are thugs.

    WOMAN
    Greetings. My name is Daniella. My father was Jonas Becker.

    There are quiet murmurs and whispering throughout the entire room.

    DANIELLA
    He was murdered a year ago. I have arrived to avenge his death and make his murderer suffer a thousand times over. I will pay greatly for any information I can get on his murderer and I will reward those who assist me.

    Steve leans in close to Curtis.

    STEVE
    Her father was this huge crime lord in town here. He ran everything. After he was killed, there was no one person in charge, so everything’s been kind of a wreck since then. Nothing has been organized, however we hope to change that with our Order.

    CURTIS
    Who killed him? Couldn’t have been the cops. They worked for him, didn’t they?

    STEVE
    Rumor has it that it was Nightshade.

    CURTIS
    The costumed freak that goes around, disrupting drug deals and killing dirty cops? I thought he was only a myth.

    STEVE
    He is, hence why it’s a rumor. No one who has seen him, has lived long to tell about him.

    DANIELLA
    YOU!

    She points in the direction of Steve’s table.

    DANIELLA
    What is it that you’re talking about down there?

    STEVE
    Well love, I was just saying that I don’t know for sure who killed your father, but rumor has it that it was this guy that hides behind a costume and calls himself Nightshade.

    Daniella starts making her way to Steve’s table. She reaches it and takes Steve’s joint out of his hand and takes a puff on it.

    DANIELLE
    Tell me all you know of this…Nightshade.


    INT. ASHLEIGH’S HOUSE – ASHLEIGH’S BEDROOM – NIGHT

    Ashleigh sits at her computer, surfing the net. Behind her on her dresser is a picture of Scott. We see a shot of the computer screen and we can see that she’s researching on how to contact with the dead, more specifically, how to contact with a specific dead person.

    ASHLEIGH
    (Reading quietly to herself)
    …Heightened Psychic Awareness…

    Ashleigh trails off as she goes to a search engine and starts looking on how to heighten her psychicness.


    INT. MICHAEL’S HOUSE – KICTHEN – NIGHT

    Michael is in his kitchen, dozens of news clippings laid out on the table. We catch a glimpse at some of the headlines and see that they all have to do with either a ‘mysterious figure dressed all in black’, or mysterious deaths, or crime rings being mysteriously stopped. Various things throughout the articles are circled or highlighted.

    MICHAEL
    (To himself)
    Who the hell are you?

    He moves some of the clips out of the way and moves another one in front of him and begins reading through. Suddenly his phone rings, interrupting him.

    Michael sighs as he stands up and goes over to his phone.

    MICHAEL
    Hello?...Oh hey...yeah I’ve got the pictures you wanted...Enough to put them all away for a long time. Got the last of them last night. I can meet with you whenever you want...Alright, that’ll be just perfect...See you then.

    Michael hangs up and hurries back to the kitchen table to continue with his research.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK – CHILDREN’S PLAYGROUND – NIGHT

    A little boy and girl of about five are swinging on a set of swings. They are the only people in the park and they giggle and laugh as they swing back and forth, content.

    Suddenly the boy is shoved off his swing and he goes flying. He hits the ground hard and starts to cry. His sister jumps off her swing and goes over to him to see if he’s all right. Wicked laughter reaches them.

    They look back and see a group of high school troublemakers, laughing. One of them takes one of the swings and swings it with all his might, causing it to fly up and wrap around the top pole, out of reach of the children.

    TEENAGER 1
    Go home and cry, cry-babies. It’s past your bedtime. This is our time. The time of the boogiemen!

    He makes a scary face at the kids as the other teens start to circle them. They cry harder.

    NIGHTSHADE
    (V.O.)
    You don’t know what a true Boogieman is. But you are about to find out.

    The teens turn and see Nightshade standing behind them

    TEENAGER 1
    Well, well, well, what do we have here? It’s a little late for Halloween.

    He goes in to touch Nightshade’s jacket, but Nightshade whips his hand out and grabs the teenager’s hand and twists it, breaking his wrist. He screams in pain as the bone juts out.

    Nightshade swings his foot back and kicks a teenager in the gut, and then swings it down and back forward, tripping up another one. The remaining teenagers start backing away and end up turning around and running away, the injured ones soon join them.

    TEENAGER 1
    You’re one psycho motherfucker!

    The teenagers run out of the park, and out of sight. Nightshade turns to the kids.

    NIGHTSHADE
    You all right?

    They scream when he asks them and they run away.

    NIGHTSHADE
    (Quietly)
    Fucking brats.


    INT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE – LIVING ROOM

    Len is sleeping on the couch in the living room, twisting, turning, and lightly moaning.


    EXT. SMALL SHOP – NIGHT - FLASHBACK

    There is a small store called ‘Leonard’s Home-Made Gadgets’ that is on fire and burning. Len is standing outside of it, shocked. A group of street punks walk towards him.

    PUNK 1
    You should have paid us protection, geek-boy. Now look what has happened.

    Len turns on them, angry.

    LEN
    You…Did this?

    PUNK 2
    It’s nothing compared to what we’ll do to you.

    The punks take out chains and knuckle rings and move in on Len. Suddenly one of them gets shot in the knee and falls to the ground, screaming in pain. All the others turn around and Nightshade is standing there, his twin 9MM’s pointed at them.

    NIGHTSHADE
    How about you leave the guy alone?

    PUNK 2
    Who the fuck do you think you are?

    NIGHTSHADE
    My name is Nightshade. Think about it whenever you want to do something like this again.

    The punks all laugh and move in on him. Nightshade puts his guns away and back kick’s one of the punks, and then punches another in the face. He knees the third in the groin and then uppercuts him, sending him flying back. The first punk is back up again and Nightshade jumps up and sticks both feet out, kicking the punk back. Nightshade lands and elbows the second punk in the face and then turns around and grabs his head. Nightshade slams him into a wall, knocking him out.

    Nightshade quickly turns around, pointing his guns out again.

    PUNK 1
    Peace, man.

    And with that, the last two remaining punks turn and run away.

    LEN
    Thank you so much.

    Nightshade turns and looks at him, and then at the burning building behind him.


    INT. ASHLEIGH’S HOUSE – ASHLEIGH’S ROOM – NIGHT – PRESENT

    Ashleigh is lying on her floor, on her back, with her hands folded over her chest and her eyes closed. She is breathing deeply and counting down backwards.


    EXT. ANCIENT TEMPLE – DAY – ASHLEIGH’S IMAGINATION

    We see what Ashleigh sees in her mind. There’s kind of a misty hazy tint to the scene. She is slowly walking up the steep steps of some kind of ancient temple that has moss and vines growing on parts of it.


    INT. ANCIENT TEMPLE – DAY – ASHLEIGH’S IMAGINATION

    Ashleigh walks down a giant, empty hall, to a set of giant oak doors. She slowly creeks them open and steps inside.

    Next thing we know, she’s floating through space, stars exploding here and there like fireworks, in dazzling displays of color. The blackness of space constantly changes color, similar to the Northern Lights.

    Ashleigh moves her arms as if swimming, and reaches one star. She touches it and it explodes in a display of various reds and oranges.


    INT. ASHLEIGH’S HOUSE – ASHLEIGH’S BEDROOM – NIGHT

    Ashleigh screams a blood-curdling scream as her hands rush up to her head, but her eyes do not open.


    INT. MICHAEL’S HOUSE – MORNING

    Michael is sitting at his computer. His eyes have deep bags under them and he has a mug of coffee next to him. Something he reads catches his attention and he grabs his jacket and heads out the door.


    EXT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE – DAY

    Michael approaches the old abandoned warehouse from the first movie. He walks inside of it and looks around the giant empty room. The only visible sign of there having been a battle is a lot of empty shell casings. He continues to look around. Suddenly he hears a lot of clicking noise and stops.

    Michael looks around and sees that there are quite a few cops with guns pointed at him. One of the cops is the one that called for backup the night before.


    INT. ASHLEIGH’S HOUSE – ASHLEIGH’S ROOM – DAY

    Ashleigh moans as she opens her eyes. She is still lying on the floor from the night before, and her hair is messed up. She slowly stands, putting a hand to her head and wincing.

    Suddenly she lets out a raging scream, due to the pain in her head, and all the windows in her room suddenly shatter, spraying her with glass.

    Ashleigh backs up, frightened, and bumps hard into her bookshelf. She falls to the floor, the bookshelf close behind, about to crush her. Ashleigh squeezes her eyes shut.

    A few seconds later she cautiously opens them again. She looks around and sees that nothing has fallen on top of her. Various books are lying all over the floor, but none of them had hit her. She looks over her shoulder and quickly turns around.

    The bookshelf is stopped in mid-air, inches from her. Before she even knows what’s going on, the bookshelf puts itself straight again.

    ASHLEIGH
    What the hell…?

    Ashleigh looks around the room at all the broken glass. As she scans the room, wherever she looks, the glass in that area automatically picks itself up and flies out the window. Within seconds the entire room is clear of broken glass.

    Ashleigh turns and looks at her desk. Her pencil flies up into the air and rushes towards her. Ashleigh whips out her hand and catches the pencil in mid-air.

    ASHLEIGH
    Whoa.

    Then another flash of blinding pain sears through her head and she drops the pencil as her hands reach up to her head and she screams.


    INT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE – DAY

    The scene is much like that of Ashleigh’s dream-state in that everything has a misty tint to it. We see Michael enter the warehouse and we see the cops sneaking up on him.


    INT. ASHLEIGH’S HOUSE – ASHLEIGH’S ROOM – DAY

    Ashleigh snaps out of it, but when she opens her eyes, they’re glazed over. Almost as if she’s someone else.


    INT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE – DAY

    Michael dodges to the side as bullets spray where he used to be. He goes up behind a pillar as bullets ricochet off it. He takes out his revolver and loads it. He peaks out from behind the pillar long enough to get a couple shots off and then hides behind the pillar again.

    Michael looks to his side and sees an entrance to a staircase. He breathes in and runs out from behind the pillar, firing as he moves sideways towards the stairs. The cops had moved towards him while he was hiding, so now they’re alot closer. They fire a few shots and a couple hit Michael in the chest as he jumps and flies into the staircase. He rips open his jacket as he runs and takes it off, revealing a bulletproof vest underneath.

    At the bottom of the stairs, the cops start rushing up. Michael aims and fires down at them, hearing someone cry out in pain. He continues on up the steps and out the entrance at the top. He realizes that he’s on the balcony level that overlooks the main floor. He runs down the side of it as the cops pile out onto it.

    They fire at Michael and one shot hits him in the leg, causing him to scream and blood to splatter the walkway. Michael falls, rolling onto his back. He fires a shot off at the approaching cops, but miss. His other hand covers his bloody wound. As the cops approach, Michael rolls under the railing and falls straight down to the concrete floor below.

    He lands hard, knocking the wind out of himself. He rolls under the walkway so the cops can’t get him in their view. We can tell by his facial expression that he’s in a lot of pain.

    Within seconds, the police were on the other side of the balcony, aiming their guns down at Michael. At that moment a lone figure walks through the front entrance, catching everyone’s attention. It’s a female wearing a rubber Halloween witch mask and a short jacket that ends right below her ribcage and has a collar made out of fur. She’s wearing black leather pants with a red fire design on the side of one leg.

    She looks up at the police and they start moving to either side one by one, as if they were being shoved. One of them gets a shot off at her, but the bullet stops a half-meter from the figure and falls to the floor. The cop that fired seemed to get punched in the face by an invisible force and falls over the railing and to the floor below.

    The figure walks over to him and puts her boot on the cop’s neck, making sure he stays down. His fallen gun lifts up into the air and flies into the figure’s hand. She fires a shot and it seems to fly around the room with a mind of it’s own as it changes directions constantly. Finally it chooses a target and zooms towards the cop, embedding into his chest, causing the cop to scream.

    The figure reaches down and picks Michael up by the collar and starts dragging him out of the building. The cops gather themselves up, but don’t fire at the figure as she leaves.


    EXT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE – DAY

    The figure throws Michael into a red convertible, seemingly with ease, and jumps in behind the wheel, backing up and driving away at top speed. Once she gets out onto the highway and starts heading away from the warehouse, she removes her witch mask to reveal Ashleigh, hair blowing in the rushing wind.

    As she drives, the barely conscious Michael reaches into his pocket and takes out his P.I. badge and flashes it to Ashleigh.

    MICHAEL
    (Weakly)
    Pull…Pull over…

    ASHLEIGH
    Sorry honey. I pull over and those cops back there will be all over us. That little display in there exhausted me beyond belief.

    MICHAEL
    (Weakly)
    Who are…you?

    ASHLEIGH
    My name isn’t important. But I guess I kind of have to explain what happened back there, huh?

    Ashleigh glances at Michael and he makes the slightest form of a smile.

    ASHLEIGH
    Well I used to be just an average teenager, until I did some exercises on my mind to heighten my Psychic Awareness, but when I did it…something went wrong. I don’t know what, but my body was filled with all this power. Telekentic power. However, it seems my Psychic strength is only the same as my physical strength. Although I also get quick flashes of ESP once in awhile, which is how I found you and something…I can’t explain it…but something drove me to help you.

    Ashleigh gets a better look at Michael’s condition.

    ASHLEIGH
    Shit. We need to get you to a hospital.

    Michael puts a hand on Ashleigh’s arm.

    MICHAEL
    (Weakly)
    No hospital. They’ll be looking for us…there. I’ll give you my address.

    Ashleigh sighs as she continues driving.


    INT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE - HALLWAY

    Scott is helping Len fix a ventilation problem in the base. Len is crawled up inside a small access tunnel as Scott stands outside of it, passing him in supplies as he needs it. There is a small radio playing music.

    LEN
    Pass me the wrench.

    Len’s hand comes out of the tunnel as Scott puts the wrench in it. It disappears back inside the tunnel.

    Suddenly over the radio, the music stops as an announcer comes on.

    RADIO ANNOUNCER
    (V.O.)
    Time for the Noon News Update. Highway 89 is shut down for the rest of the afternoon due to a traffic accident involving three cars. There were two fatalities and three people are in the hospital with serious wounds. Over at the St. Wainluk Motor Inn, there have been reports of a girl screaming and being beaten up in one of the rooms. In lighter news, if you head on in to Wal-Mart today you’ll find…

    Scott reaches over and turns the radio off.

    SCOTT
    You catch that?

    Len, covered in grease and dirt comes out of the tunnel.

    LEN
    Yeah. Go on. We can finish this after.

    SCOTT
    I’m on it. Fucking woman beater’s gonna wish he was never born. Oh, and Len? Go out and get some groceries while I’m gone. We’re running low.

    Len mockingly bows.

    LEN
    Yes, oh great master.

    Scott glares at him.

    LEN
    Of course. Humor. You have none.

    Scott turns and walks away.

    LEN
    (Calling out to Scott)
    2% Milk or 1%?

    No answer.

    LEN
    (To himself)
    Chocolate it is.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK MOTOR INN – DAY

    Nightshade roars up on his custom motorcycle. He pulls to stop on the side of the road and climbs off, rushing inside the hotel.


    INT. ST. WAINLUK MOTOR INN – DAY

    Nightshade passes by the front desk and sees that no one is behind it. He looks down the hall and sees no one in the hall. He climbs the stairs to the second floor and sees three Front Desk clerks outside a door. As he approaches them, they turn to look at him.

    NIGHTSHADE
    What the fuck are you waiting for? Open the god damn door.

    FRONT DESK CLERK 1
    We can’t. He’s got the safety latch over it.

    Nightshade shoves the person back.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Back up.

    Nightshade takes a small gadget out of his jacket pocket. He pushes a button and a small circular blade pops out. He pushes another button and the blade starts spinning. He opens the door until the chain latch on the other side stops it from opening anymore and he squeezes the gadget through the inch-wide space and slowly moves it up. Sparks fly as it cuts through the chain.

    Nightshade retracts the gadget and puts it away as he kicks open the door and walks into the room.

    On the bed is a teenage girl with bruises all over her face. A man in his 20’s stands nearby, about to hit her again.

    Nightshade looks at the girl.

    NIGHTSHADE
    These nice hotel people will get you help.

    The girl just sits there, tears running down her face. Nightshade sighs.

    NIGHTSHADE
    That means you can leave.

    The girl gets up and runs past Nightshade, out of the room. The man tries to run past Nightshade as well, but he throws his foot back and kicks the door shut.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Not you.

    The man tries to punch Nightshade, but Nightshade ducks and the man puts his fist through the wall. Nightshade throws a punch to the man’s gut, and then a second one. The man backs up.

    MAN
    Who are you?

    Nightshade jump kicks the man, getting him in the top of the chest. The man stumbles back and trips, falling onto his ass. Nightshade sidekicks his face. The man’s head falls to the floor with a scream. He slowly stands, holding a bloody nose.

    NIGHTSHADE
    My name is Nightshade, but you can just call me Mr. Shade. Sounds more formal, don’t you think?

    The man charges at Nightshade, but Nightshade throws a punch, hitting the man in the face, causing him to stumble back and fall onto the bed.

    Suddenly the door slams open and Daniella storms into the room, a small gang behind her. One of the Front Desk Clerks is also with her. Daniella hands her a wad of cash.

    DANIELLA
    Split this with your co-workers. You did good. Oh, and be sure to give some to that poor girl. She did her part to a T.

    And with that, the Front Desk Clerk took off running out of the room. Nightshade looks at Daniella, curious as to what’s going on.

    DANIELLA
    Ahh, Nightshade. At last I can look at my father’s killer.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Lady, I’ve killed a lot of people. None of them were good people.

    DANIELLA
    And neither am I.

    Daniella gives a hand signal and the thugs that are with her all take out guns. The man that Nightshade was beating up stands up and also takes out a gun. Nightshade very slowly backs up as the conversation takes place.

    DANIELLA
    I knew that all I had to do to get your attention was stage something like this and you’d come running like a moth to a flame.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Maybe if you told me who your father was, I might feel sorry enough to apologize.

    DANIELLA
    Don’t mock me, boy. Can I call you boy? I think from now on I’ll refer to you as Nightboy. My father was Jonas Becker. He’s dead because of you and you will pay for it.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Oh, that fat fucker! I’m not sorry I killed him. How could such a hot chick come from his loins anyway? Let me guess: Some kind of experimental fertilization. It could definitely explain some of the things wrong with you. Tell me something. If I wasn’t a superhero, and if you weren’t a vengeful crazy bitch, would we have a shot?

    DANIELLA
    Sorry, but guys aren’t my type.

    NIGHTSHADE
    I didn’t think you could possibly get any hotter, but amazingly, you just did.

    DANIELLA
    Enough with the mockery. Kill him.

    The thugs open fire and spray shots all over the room. However, by now Nightshade was right in front of the window, and he turns and jumps through it, shattering glass all over the place.

    Nightshade lands on the grassy lawn in a crouch. He stands up and runs to his motorcycle.

    Daniella leans out the window and growls as Nightshade drives away.

    DANIELLA
    FUCK!

    She turns around and takes a gun from one of her thugs and shoots the man that Nightshade was beating up. He falls to the floor with a bullet in his head.


    INT. MICHAEL’S HOUSE – DAY

    Michael sits on a couch, his leg bandaged. He puts a few painkillers into his mouth and washes them down with a glass of water. Ashleigh sits in a chair across from him.

    ASHLEIGH
    You going to be ok here by yourself?

    MICHAEL
    I think so. They haven’t found out where I live yet. And if they have, they’ve made no move before, so I think I’m safe here for the time being.

    Ashleigh stands up to leave.

    MICHAEL
    Wait.

    Ashleigh stops and turns back to face him.

    MICHAEL
    This is just a crazy out-there question, but I’ve got nothing left. Seeing as how you’re some kind of superhero of sorts, I was wondering if you know Nightshade. I’ve been trying to find him and…

    ASHLEIGH
    (Cutting him off)
    I met him once. Very briefly about a year ago. He saved my life. It would have been the best day of my life if that very same day, my boyfriend didn’t disappear. Haven’t seen or heard from him since.

    MICHAEL
    I’ll make a deal with you. If you ever hear or see anything on Nightshade, especially with that ESP thing you can do, inform me as soon as possible, and in return, I’ll try to track down your boyfriend.

    Ashleigh’s face lights up with happiness.

    MICHAEL
    If you want, we can get a head start on that now. I’ve got a computer with high speed internet, and with what you can tell me about him and his disappearance, we might just be able to get a good start on it.

    ASHLEIGH
    Don’t you want to rest? I don’t want to bother…

    MICHAEL
    Nonsense. I can rest when I sleep tonight.

    With a slight groan, Michael stands up and heads to the computer.


    INT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE – LIVING ROOM

    Scott is in the process of putting on his Nightshade attire. Len is following behind him.

    LEN
    All I’m saying is that maybe you should stay in tonight. Just until this whole thing with Jonas’ daughter blows over.

    SCOTT
    The only thing that’ll be getting blown over with her involved, is a lesbian orgy. God, I love that image. Is it so wrong for such a bad person to be so hot?

    LEN
    Now’s not the time for joking, Scott. She’s serious. She can kill you. She almost did kill you earlier. And she’ll no doubt be looking for you tonight.

    SCOTT
    I have a job to do. I can’t stop doing it just because I almost get killed. If that were the case, I’d have stopped doing this a hundred times by now.

    At this point, Scott has fully changed into his entire Nightshade attire.

    NIGHTSHADE
    I need to go on my patrol more so now then ever, because there’s a crazy psycho out there, running the crime and I need to put a stop to it. I’ll be back.

    And with that, Nightshade reaches the garage and hops onto his motorcycle and takes off down the tunnel that’ll lead him outside.


    INT. MICHAEL’S HOUSE – EVENING

    Time has passed since the last scene and Michael looks like he’s about to fall asleep. However there also seems to be a bit of a triumphant look. Ashleigh has a sad look on her face.

    MICHAEL
    I’ll keep looking into it, but so far all the evidence points towards Nightshade killing him. I know you don’t want to accept it, but you have to start thinking about the fact that he may be dead, and that Nightshade may be responsible.

    Ashleigh wipes tears from her eyes and grits her teeth.

    ASHLEIGH
    Thank-You. I’ll keep in touch if I find anything on Nightshade.

    Ashleigh turns and walks out of the house.


    INT. ASHLEIGH’S HOUSE – NIGHT

    Ashleigh walks in through the door.

    ASHLEIGH
    Sorry I had the car so late. I lost track of…

    She stops in mid-sentence as she sees her mom passed out in front of the TV, a few empty beer bottles nearby. Ashleigh makes a scoffing noise.

    ASHLEIGH
    Drunk. Like always.

    Ashleigh continues past her mom and up to her room.


    INT. ASHLEIGH’S HOUSE – ASHLEIGH’S ROOM – NIGHT

    She closes the door behind her and stands still, closing her eyes, concentrating.


    EXT. TOWN OF ST. WAINLUK – RANDOM STREET – NIGHT

    The shot has a hazy tint to it. We see Nightshade riding down a street on his motorcycle.


    INT. ASHLEIGH’S HOUSE – ASHLEIGH’S ROOM – NIGHT


    Ashleigh opens her eyes, smiling. She looks at the witch mask in her hands and throws it to the floor.

    ASHLEIGH
    That won’t do.

    She goes to her closet and starts digging through her junk. Soon enough she pulls out a white mask that covers the top half of her face from her nose upwards, leaving only her eyes open. She lays it on the floor beside her and continues to rummage. Soon she pulls out a black handkerchief and some maroon spray paint along with washout hair dye.

    As ‘Superman’s Dead’ by Our Lady Peace plays, we see a montage shot. First we see Ashleigh spraying the white mask with the maroon spray paint. Fade Out.

    Fade in on Ashleigh having her leather pants on an ironing board in her room and spray painting the fire design on them, the same color as her now-maroon mask. Fade out.

    Fade in on Ashleigh using a paintbrush to paint the buttons on her jacket the same color as the mask and flames. She picks up the spray paint can and sprays the color onto the fur collar as well. Fade out.

    Fade in on Ashleigh dying her hair blue with the washout hair dye. Fade out.

    Fade in on a box addressed to Ashleigh’s mom. Inside are many old relics. A gloved hand reaches in and removes a Chakram, which is an old medieval Frisbee-like weapon. It’s a thin sharp circle, much like a Frisbee only without anything in the middle, and made of sharp metal. Fade out.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK – RANDOM STREET – NIGHT

    Nightshade is driving down a street near the local pond, looking for any activity. A lone figure (Which I will call Wildcard from now on, although she doesn’t officially get her name until later on) walks out of a dark ally.

    WILDCARD
    NIGHTSHADE!

    Nightshade hears his name getting shouted out and stops his motorcycle, looking around. He spots Wildcard approaching him. He removes his helmet and looks at her. Wildcard has a maroon mask covering the top of her face, with a black handkerchief covering the lower part of her face. She’s wearing a jacket that ends just below her ribs, with maroon buttons and a maroon-colored fur collar. Under her jacket she had an army green shirt, and below that she had black leather pants with maroon-colored flame one the side of one leg. On the side of her waist is a chakram.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Who are you?

    WILDCARD
    You killed my boyfriend. I’m here to get revenge.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Boy, if I got a penny for every time I heard something similar to that… he was a bad person. I only kill bad people.

    WILDCARD
    He was NOT a bad person! YOU are a bad person. And I’m going to make sure you don’t get to kill anyone else.

    Wildcard takes the chakram and throws it towards Nightshade. Nightshade ducks and the object flies past him.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Whoa. Now you’re starting to get a tad bit close for comfort there.

    Suddenly Nightshade hears a whooshing noise and looks behind him. He ducks just in time to avoid the chakram coming back for a second hit. He stands back up and sees the object stop mind-air and head back to him.

    NIGHTSHADE
    What the fuck?

    He turns and runs back to his bike, but before he can get on it, he turns around and takes out a gun. The chakram is about to slice into him when he ducks, avoiding it, and then comes back up and fires at it before it has a chance to come back for him. The bullet knocks the object away, causing it to fall to the ground.

    Nightshade turns to face Wildcard, but is met with a punch to the face.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Ow! That hurt! You got some muscle on you!

    Wildcard kicks Nightshade in the chest and sends him flying back. He lands on his back and before he can recover, Wildcard has her foot on his neck, stepping down.

    WILDCARD
    Time to finish this.

    Nightshade grabs her foot and twists as he rolls away. Wildcard falls to the ground and Nightshade is back on his feet. He’s suddenly shoved back, without anyone touching him. He looks around, but is shoved back again, harder this time.

    Wildcard is now back on her feet and jumps at Nightshade, but then seems to lift up in the air a couple extra feet on top of that, and flips high over Nightshade’s head. While in the air, she swings her foot back and kicks Nightshade in the back of the head, causing him to stumble forward.

    He whips around to face her just as she lands and turns to face him.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Ok, now I’m getting a tad bit serious. At first I didn’t want to hurt you because you were a girl, but now I’m starting to not care about that.

    WILDCARD
    Give me your best shot.

    Nightshade takes out his guns and fires at her, but all his bullets stop in mid air and fly in random directions as if someone is throwing them. Nightshade looks down at his guns and then back up just in time to drop his guns and block a punch from Wildcard.

    Wildcard went to kick, but Nightshade used his other hand to block that. Then he brought it up in an uppercut, catching Wildcard’s chin. Wildcard does a back-kick and it’s obvious she used her telekentic abilities to help with it, as Nightshade flys back through the air further then a normal kick would send someone. Nightshade falls into the pond and sinks below the surface.

    Wildcard stands by the edge and scans the water, looking for Nightshade when he surfaces. She stands around for a minute. Then two. He still has not surfaced. Wildcard stands around for another few minutes, too long for anyone to hold their breath underwater. Content, she turns and walks away.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK – EDGE OF POND – NIGHT

    Nightshade surfaces on the other side of the pond. He lost his jacket, hat, and sunglasses in the water, and his black face paint is washed off. The rest of him is soaking wet.

    Nightshade crawls onto the ground and falls into a heap on his back, removing his black mouth bandage and breathing heavy. He lets the bandage blow away in the breeze as he slowly stands and starts slowly making his way back to his motorcycle.


    INT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE – LIVING ROOM

    Len is relaxing and reading a Star Trek Starship manual when he hears a crashing noise in the garage. He puts the book down and rushes into the room to find Scott crumpling to a heap at the foot of his motorcycle.

    He rushes to him and helps him stand.

    SCOTT
    Psycho bitch…

    LEN
    I told you she had something planned.

    SCOTT
    No, not her. Someone else. Apparently I killed her boyfriend.

    LEN
    Well you have killed a lot of people.

    Len helps Scott to the couch, where he lies down.

    LEN
    Just get some rest.

    But before he knew it, Scott was already asleep.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK HIGH SCHOOL – DAY

    Ashleigh walks towards the school, heavy bags under her eyes. She yawns. As she gets closer to the school, she hears people talking and mentioning Nightshade’s name. She eavesdrops on the nearest conversation.

    STUDENT
    And apparently some people saw him crawl out of the pond on the other side from where he fought that chick. The guy took a major beating.

    Ashleigh scowls. She turns to storm inside the school, when she sees Curtis storming out.

    ASHLEIGH
    Curtis, what are you doing?

    CURTIS
    I just dropped out of school, and I don’t want to hear any shit from you too. It’s not for me, end of story.

    ASHLEIGH
    Curtis, they were right.

    CURTIS
    Who?

    ASHLEIGH
    Everyone. Scott…He’s dead. Nightshade killed him.

    CURTIS
    (Shocked)
    How do you know this?

    ASHLEIGH
    I worked with a Private Investigator to figure it out.

    Curtis looked around and grabbed Ashleigh by the arm and led her to a tree where no one was around.

    CURTIS
    I can get him back.

    ASHLEIGH
    How?

    Curtis sighs.

    CURTIS
    I’m not suppose to tell anyone this, so if you utter a single word to anyone, I’ll…

    ASHLEIGH
    I won’t.

    CURTIS
    I joined a gang. The Order to be more exact. It’s why I’m dropping out of school. I just need to tell them that we should go after Nightshade and they’ll be on it.

    ASHLEIGH
    Don’t do anything dangerous Curtis. Nightshade isn’t joking around. He knows his shit.

    CURTIS
    So does The Order. Look, I’ve got to go, but I promise you. I’ll take of this.

    Curtis turns and walks away, leaving Ashleigh there.

    ASHLEIGH
    (To herself)
    Oh, like hell you’re leaving me here.

    And she begins trailing Curtis from a distance.


    INT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE – LIVING ROOM

    Scott opens his eyes and slowly sits up. He winces in pain.

    SCOTT
    Man, this has been a bad week…

    He stands up and walks over to the kitchen. He opens the fridge and sees chocolate milk.

    SCOTT
    God damn chocolate lover.

    He takes the chocolate milk and makes himself a bowl of cereal. Len comes around the corner.

    LEN
    How are you this morning?

    SCOTT
    Soar.

    Len smiles.

    LEN
    Is it because you got beat up by two chicks in one day?

    SCOTT
    Jonas’ daughter never beat me up. And don’t you have something to fix?

    LEN
    No, I got the ventilation fixed last night. I’ve got nothing to fix in this place for once.

    Scott moves his bowl off the kitchen table to the counter and then slams his fist onto the table, smashing it in half.

    SCOTT
    Well now you do.

    LEN
    Oh come on Scott! We eat off that!

    SCOTT
    Less talk, more fixing.

    LEN
    Well aren’t you quite the grouch today.

    Len starts humming the ‘Grinch’ theme as he takes the broken table out of the room and heads to the garage.


    EXT. PUNK CLUB – DAY

    Curtis looks around himself, making sure no one sees him as he goes inside a seemingly closed down building. He slips inside.

    Ashleigh watches him from behind a tree. She smiles.


    INT. PUNK CLUB – MAIN ROOM - DAY

    Curtis moves through the room as some techno music plays. He sees where Steve and the others are sitting and goes up to them and sits down.

    Steve passes Curtis a joint, which he takes.

    CURTIS
    May I suggest a person for my killing?

    STEVE
    Sure.

    Curtis looks at the back of the room where Daniella is sitting in a booth with a few bodyguards.

    CURTIS
    That chick is looking for Nightshade right? Well I just found out that he killed my friend that went missing last year. Now I figure I can kill him, become a member of The Order, and by killing him, I also get The Order in her good graces.

    Steve leans back.

    STEVE
    You know, that’s not a bad idea. If you can accomplish it, then go right ahead. You have my blessing.

    Curtis chuckles as he breathes in from the joint. Suddenly the main doors slam open and Wildcard walks in, flashing neon lights playing across her figure. She looks around the room and spots Curtis. She starts to head in the direction of his table.

    A druggie steps in front of her, blocking her way.

    DRUGGIE
    Hey hot stuff, you the new dancer? You know, all the other dancers have gotten to know me a bit better. How about before your show you come back to…

    He’s cut off as Wildcard’s hand flies out and wraps around the druggie’s neck, tightening.

    WILDCARD
    I’m not a dancer and I’m not a slut. Got that?

    The druggie slightly nods as Wildcard let’s go and an invisible force pushes the man away. Wildcard reaches Curtis’ table and looks down at the group.

    WILDCARD
    Who’s in charge here?

    Steve smiles.

    STEVE
    How much are you willing to pay for this information?

    WILDCARD
    How about I don’t kill you and we call it even?

    Steve’s attention was brought to Wildcard’s hand as it moves towards her chakram at her side. Steve points.

    STEVE
    Daniella. Over there.

    Wildcard turns and walks to Daniella’s booth. As she approaches, Daniella looks up and her bodyguards take out a pair of guns.

    DANIELLA
    Can I help you?

    WILDCARD
    I hear you want Nightshade.

    Daniella frowns. Wildcard continues.

    WILDCARD
    I want him too. He killed my boyfriend and I want revenge. I fought him last night. I would have killed him if I knew he was still alive.

    DANIELLA
    And you’re telling me this because…

    WILDCARD
    I want to propose a partnership. I can kill him, on my own, no problem. But I need people to be there to stop the little fuck from running away.

    DANIELLA
    He does seem to be good at that. Ok, you have a deal. Meet me back here this afternoon and we’ll devise a plan. As for right now, I have other business to attend to. Nice meeting you, my little wild card.

    Daniella stretches out her hand and Wildcard shakes it.

    WILDCARD
    Tonight will be the fall of Nightshade.

    She turns and starts to walk away.

    DANIELLA
    (To herself)
    Hmm. Cute costume.


    INT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE - GARAGE

    Scott walks into the garage where Len is fixing the table. Scott is having a smoke.

    SCOTT
    I’m going out.

    LEN
    At this time of day? Why? Has something happened?

    SCOTT
    No. I need to go make sure Ashleigh and Curtis are safe.

    LEN
    They are safe, Scott. You go and spy on them every day for a year, and does anything ever happen? No. They’re fine. Besides, you need to get some more rest.

    SCOTT
    I need to find out who that girl was last night. There was something about her. It was like she was punching me, but she was away from me and wasn’t moving. Her weapon…It changed direction in midair. I need to find out about her. See what her deal is.

    LEN
    You won’t find anything out during the day. The rats and weasels come out at night here.

    SCOTT
    They come out during the day too. You just need to know where to look.

    Scott walks over to a closet and opens it to reveal a dozen jackets, all the same, with dozens of every other part of the Nightshade attire.

    SCOTT
    Good thing for backups.

    He reaches in to grab the jacket.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK HIGH SCHOOL – DAY - RAINING

    The day has clouded over and it has started raining. Nightshade sits on a bench, having a smoke, as he watches the school across the street and the students piling out of it. We see a montage shot of time passing as we see various shots of students leaving the school and Nightshade scanning them. Ashleigh and Curtis do not come out from the school. The last shot shows the last few stragglers leaving. The schoolyard is now empty.

    Nightshade sighs and turns to get back on his bike, but Wildcard is standing there.

    WILDCARD
    Sorry, I didn’t want to disturb you and your spying. What were you doing? Picking out your next victim?

    NIGHTSHADE
    Nah, I already found her.

    ‘Connected’ by Hoobastank begins to play as Nightshade whips out his guns and fire, but Wildcard dodges to the side. Nightshade turns to face her, but is met with a foot to the face.

    Nightshade tumbles back as Wildcard pounces on him, knocking him to the ground. Wildcard straddles him and pins his arms down. Suddenly Nightshade groans as he feels someone punching his chest over and over, but he can’t see anyone other then Wildcard, who is pinning him down.

    Nightshade rams his head up and hits Wildcard in the face. She screams and loosens her grip. Nightshade rolls over and pins Wildcard to the ground. Nightshade gets shoved off by an invisible force and rolls across the ground, coming back up to his feet. Wildcard gets back on her feet as well.


    WILDCARD
    I don’t know how you lived last time, but I won’t make the same mistake again.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Who the hell are you?

    Wildcard does a half-turn back kick, but Nightshade catches it. Then Wildcard jumps up and kicks him with her other foot. Nightshade stumbles back as Wildcard lands in a crouch.

    WILDCARD
    My real name is not important. But you can call me…Wildcard.

    NIGHTSHADE
    I guess that makes me the Ace then, huh?

    Nightshade gets shoved back by the invisible force again and Wildcard runs at him. They get into a flurry of punches, hand attacks, and blocks. Nightshade gets a good punch in at the face, causing Wildcard to break away and take a few steps back.

    Nightshade runs at her, but she jumps back and throws her fist straight out. Nightshade gets ‘punched’ in the gut by an invisible force and doubles over. Wildcard runs at him and swings her foot up to connect with Nightshade’s face while he’s doubled over.

    Nightshade’s face flies up as he falls to the ground. Wildcard stands above him, laughing. Nightshade takes something out of his pocket and sticks it to the ground, pressing down on it.

    He rolls away as the ground explodes, throwing dirt into Wildcard’s eyes. She screams as she rubs at her eyes. Nightshade runs to his motorcycle and climbs on, driving away.

    Wildcard throws a small circler electronic device and guides it with her mind until it lands perfectly on the back of Nightshade’s motorcycle. Wildcard turns and walks away, laughing.


    INT. PUNK CLUB – MAIN ROOM - DAY

    Daniella is having a drink at a table when Wildcard walks up to her.

    WILDCARD
    It’s done.

    Daniella takes out a small tracking device and looks at a dot moving through a map of the town.

    DANIELLA
    Good work. Although I don’t understand why you can’t just use that Tracking ESP you claim to have and find him.

    WILDCARD
    It only seems to work with him when he’s around town. Wherever his hideout is, I seem to never be able to see him when he’s there. I don’t know why.

    DANIELLA
    Doesn’t matter. We can find his base now.

    We zoom in on the Tracking Device so far, until the dot and map becomes real places and Nightshade riding on his motorcycle.


    EXT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE – DAY – RAINING

    Nightshade rides through the forest. He activates the ramp and rides down into the tunnel.


    INT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE - KITCHEN

    Len is setting up the newly fixed table, checking to make sure it balances and everything is good. Nightshade storms in behind him.

    NIGHTSHADE
    That bitch!

    LEN
    Who beat you up today? A teacher? A stripper? Her grandmother?

    Nightshade glares at a smiling Len. He turns and glances at the table that Len just fixed. Len notices and steps between Nightshade and the table.


    NIGHTSHADE
    Wildcard.

    LEN
    Who’s Wildcard?

    NIGHTSHADE
    The crazy bitch that kicked my ass yesterday.

    LEN
    Ahh. She came back for seconds, huh?

    NIGHTSHADE
    I just don’t understand how she can always find me. Whenever I leave the base, she’s there.

    Nightshade turns and starts to walk out of the room.

    LEN
    Now where are you going?

    NIGHTSHADE
    I need better firepower. Where did you put those experimental weapons?

    LEN
    In the garage, but they haven’t been tested yet! Hence the experimental part of that sentence!

    Nightshade ignores Len as he storms out of the room.


    INT. MICHAEL’S HOUSE – EVENING

    Michael is lying on the couch, relaxing and watching TV. His phone rings and he reaches over to grab it.

    MICHAEL
    Hello?

    ASHLEIGH
    (V.O.)
    It’s Ashleigh. Remember how you wanted me to tell you if I found anything out about Nightshade? Well get ready for a Double Feature. I can’t tell you how I know this, but tonight, these people are setting a trap for Nightshade. You can see him in action there. And it’s a place where there’ll be a lot of dirty cops. You can nail them then as well.

    MICHAEL
    I’ll call my Contact. Let him know. And Ashleigh? Thank-you.


    EXT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE – NIGHT

    Nightshade rides out of the ramp on his motorcycle. After he passes by, Steve, Curtis, and the rest of The Order come out from behind some trees and bushes.

    STEVE
    Come on, guys. If we don’t do this, Daniella will have our heads. We can be amazed at this place after.

    And with that, the group runs off down the ramp before it has a chance to close.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK – RANDOM STREET - NIGHT

    Nightshade is riding around. He drives by where he fought Wildcard the night before and gets off his bike to investigate and look for any possible clue that can help him.

    His search is interrupted though when he hears a gigantic explosion and turns and sees a fireball in the distance, where his base is.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Oh shit.

    He runs and jumps back on his motorcycle, driving off at top speed.


    EXT. NIGHTSHADE’S BASE – NIGHT

    Nightshade pulls up to a giant crater in the ground, filled with dirt, metal, concrete, and various other debris where his base used to be.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Len!

    No answer. Nightshade gets off his motorcycle and starts looking around the rubble, shouting out Len’s name over and over. He turns to face town, growling. He gets back on his motorcycle and takes off again.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK – RANDOM STREET – NIGHT

    We see a montage shot of Nightshade driving around randomly.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Where are you when I need to find you?

    We see him driving down various streets in town. The montage shot ends with him coming up to a stop near a couple drug dealers. He gets off his motorcycle and takes out a gun. He shoots one in the head, blood splattering the wall as his body crumples. He turns to the other.

    NIGHTSHADE
    I don’t have time for your shit. If you want to live, tell me where I can find Wildcard.

    DRUG DEALER
    Who?

    Nightshade sighs and shoots the drug dealer in the kneecap. He screams out in pain.

    DRUG DEALER
    FUCK! I don’t know any fucking Wildcard you psycho asshole! The only bitch I know that runs things is Daniella!

    NIGHTSHADE
    Where can I find her?

    The drug dealer hesitates and Nightshade puts his gun up against his head.

    DRUG DEALER
    The Club! She can be found at The Club!

    NIGHTSHADE
    And where is this Club?


    INT. PUNK CLUB – MAIN ROOM – NIGHT

    There is more techno music playing, however there are no nude dancers this time. There is only Daniella and her two bodyguards, with Wildcard standing next to her, The Order at the back of the room with a gun pointed at Len, who is beaten up severely, and a room filled with Dirty cops and street gangs, all with various guns, bats, and other weapons.

    They sit in silence.

    WILDCARD
    He’s here now.

    The doors slam open as the drug dealer is thrown through them. The room opens fire, thinking it is Nightshade.

    DANIELLA
    STOP!

    The guns cease firing and they see that the body is not Nightshade’s. Nightshade then walks through the doors and immediately fires off a few shots, killing a couple people.

    DANIELLA
    Don’t fire. Nobody fire.

    Nightshade walks closer, but stops a few feet from Daniella and Wildcard.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Should have known that my two favorite women were working together.

    Nightshade notices Curtis with a gun to Len’s head. His body tenses.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Let Len go and make a new base for me and I promise I’ll make your deaths quick.

    DANIELLA
    I don’t think you’re much in a position to threaten me. I’m the one that’ll be giving you orders, little boy.

    Nightshade fires a shot at Daniella, but an invisible force stops the bullet in mid-air and drops it to the floor.

    DANIELLA
    Well that wasn’t very nice at all.

    She raises her hand and slightly moves her finger. Curtis puts a bullet through Len’s shoulder. He screams out in pain and tries to crumple to the floor, but The Order holds him up.

    One of Daniella’s bodyguards approach her and hands her a box. She opens it and takes out a thick leather glove, which she puts on one hand. There is a set of buttons on it. She pushes one and the glove begins to lightly hum.

    She half-turns so she’s facing Len and suddenly electricity shoots out of them and courses over Len’s body. He screams in pain once again, and his screams get so high pitch that sound stops coming from his lips. Daniella stops and turns back to Nightshade.

    DANIELLA
    Now unless you cooperate, I’ll slowly increase the intensity so that it hurts just a bit more every time, until he dies a slow and painful death.

    Nightshade drops his guns to the floor.

    DANIELLA
    Good. Now…show me your face, so I may gaze upon the face of my father’s killer.

    Nightshade hesitates, but then slowly removes his sunglasses and black bandage. Daniella smiles and Wildcard gasps.

    WILDCARD
    (To herself)
    Scott…

    Scott glances at Curtis, but Curtis is too far away to pick out the facial features with the black face paint on.

    DANIELLA
    Time to die Nightboy.

    She increases the intensity on her glove and points it at Scott. Before she can do anything, her two bodyguards get shoved back. Then one doubles over and then gets hit in the face by an invisible force and collapses onto his back. Then the second one goes flying into the wall, knocking himself out and falling to the floor. Daniella turns angrily on Wildcard, just as a small handful of cops and thugs get pushed back.

    DANIELLA
    What are you doing!?

    WILDCARD
    You named me well.

    She takes the chakram and throws it. Daniella dodges to the side, but still gets slightly nicked by the sharp object, cutting her arm and drawing a slight line of blood.

    Nightshade, now with his full attire back on, has his guns picked up and fires at some of the thugs, killing a couple and missing others.

    The others open fire on him, and he runs into a room made for lap dances and closes the door.


    INT. PUNK CLUB – MAIN ROOM – NIGHT

    A large group of Special Agents enter the room, Michael in front of them.

    MICHAEL
    You’re all under arrest!

    The police and punks open fire as the Special Agents and Michael dodges and open fire back.

    Across the room, Daniella goes to punch Wildcard, but she blocks and kicks Daniella in the gut twice, and then does a half-spin and kicks her in the chest, sending her flying back. She then turns and clotheslines a running punk, knocking him down. She picks up his fallen gun and fires randomly, however all the shots seem to be guided towards moving targets, changing directions in the middle of the air and eventually hitting their targets.

    Wildcard gets knocked down as Daniella rams her from behind. She rolls over onto her back and jumps back to her feet as Daniella goes to kick her. Wildcard catches the foot and twists, but as Daniella is turning in the air, she swings her other foot up and kicks Wildcard in the side of the head, knocking her away.


    INT. PUNK CLUB – LAP DANCE ROOM – NIGHT

    The door opens and three people – a cop and two thugs, rush in, but Nightshade is nowhere to be seen. They run over to a pole that goes up to the second floor and look up. They hear the door close and whip around, seeing that Nightshade had been hiding behind the door.

    Nightshade raises his guns and fires until all three are dead.


    INT. PUNK CLUB – MAIN ROOM – NIGHT

    Daniella fires electricity at Wildcard, but she dodges and a table behind her explodes. Wildcard goes in and punches Daniella straight in the face. While she’s distracted, Wildcard’s chakram picks itself up off the floor and zooms across the room, decapitating a thug, and then on it’s way back to her, it cuts off another person’s hand.

    Wildcard catches it in her hand, however Daniella head buts her, knocking her back and knocking the weapon out of her hand. Daniella puts her two fists together and brings them down on Wildcard’s chest, knocking the wind out of her.

    Elsewhere in the room, Michael catches a baseball bat and punches the holder of it. He then swings the baseball bat around, connecting it with a cop’s legs, tripping him up.

    Bullets fly back and forth between the Special Agents and the dirty cops.


    INT. PUNK CLUB – SECOND FLOOR – NIGHT

    All the second floor is, is a prop area used to store props and for the dancers to go down inside the cages and lap dance rooms on poles.

    Nightshade hides behind a box and checks the ammo in his guns. He hears a group of people open a door and walk out onto the second floor and he slaps his clips back in and puts his guns away. He reaches inside his jacket and takes out a pencil. He draws a large circle on the floor around him. Instead of led, the pencil leaves a white acid-like substance that starts burning through the floor.

    Nightshade puts the pencil away and takes out a gun that looks like a flare gun. The group emerges around the corner and is about to fire at Nightshade when he fires the gun and a grenade leaps out, exploding as it hits the people. Before the blast can hit him however, the circle he made in the floor falls through and Nightshade lands on the bottom floor.


    INT. PUNK CLUB – MAIN ROOM – NIGHT

    Nightshade punches a thug in the back of the head as he stands up and takes out his guns again, firing.

    Michael gets punched with a set of knuckle rings by Steve and he turns and punches Steve, but his punch is blocked. He gets punched in the face and stumbles back, but then takes out his gun and shoots Steve in the chest.

    Daniella is pushed back by an invisible force. Wildcard jumps up into the air and starts to get lifted even higher, but Daniella grabs onto her ankle and slams her back down onto the floor.

    Wildcard rolls over and jumps up, but Daniella kicks her in the back, sending her into a table. Daniella then elbows Wildcard in the back. Wildcard turns over and head buts Daniella in the face, causing her to stumble around a bit as Wildcard gets back to her feet and Daniella gets shoved by an invisible force again.

    Wildcard goes in to punch Daniella again, however Daniella blocks and swings Wildcard around, so she has Wildcard tangled in her arms, tightly.

    DANIELLA
    NIGHTBOY!

    Nightshade turns and looks at the scene.

    DANIELLA
    Surrender or I’ll kill this traitorous bitch!

    NIGHTSHADE
    I don’t give a shit. She tried to kill me. Twice. If you don’t kill her, I will.

    Daniella points her gloved hand at Wildcard’s chest point blank and fires. Wildcard screams high pitch as electricity flows all over her body. Daniella smiles.

    Nightshade raises his guns and fires, but only hears a clicking noise.

    NIGHTSHADE
    Shit.

    He throws the guns down and takes out the grenade launcher. Daniella points a gloved finger at it and a line of electricity knocks it from his hands. Then she points the hand at Wildcard again, but before she can fire, a gun floats up in the air behind her and fires, shooting her in the back.

    Daniella screams as she lets go of Wildcard, who back-kicks her, sending Daniella to the floor. She turns and sees Curtis watching the chaos in the room, still with a gun to Len’s head, unsure of what to do. She takes off in that direction.

    Nightshade leans down to Daniella.

    NIGHTSHADE
    I killed your father. I’m going to kill you. And when I’m done here, I’m going to go and kill your whore mother.

    DANIELLA
    Fuck you.

    Daniella starts to cough up blood. Nightshade takes a nearby fallen gun and points it at Daniella. He fires, putting a hole in her head.

    Elsewhere in the room, the head Secret Agent approaches Michael.

    SECRET AGENT
    Thank-You Mr. Brown. Because of your pictures, and this bust, we have enough to put everyone on this police force behind bars for a very long time.

    MICHAEL
    Thank-you, but what about the town? It now has no police force.

    SECRET AGENT
    Well Mr. Brown, consider yourself the new Sheriff. That is, if you want it.

    MICHAEL
    I…I don’t know what to say. Of course I’ll take it!

    SECRET AGENT
    I’ll get some people transferred here right away so you have a police force to work with.


    At the back of the room, Curtis sees Wildcard walking up to him. Curtis raises the gun and fires, but the bullets stop in mid-air and fall to the floor.

    CURTIS
    Screw this.

    He drops the gun and runs out the back door. Wildcard unties Len and helps him stand to his feet again.

    WILDCARD
    You help Nightshade, right?

    Len nods weakly. Wildcard removes her mouth handkerchief and lifts her mask up slightly, showing her face.

    ASHLEIGH
    My name is Ashleigh. Scott’s old…

    LEN
    (Cutting her off)
    I know who you are. Scott’s still ever much in love with you, but he’s scared that if he hangs out with you, that he’ll bring you more trouble.

    ASHLEIGH
    I understand that now. I didn’t at first, but now I do. If Scott had known that it was me under this, then he would have surrendered to Daniella and things wouldn’t have ended this good. He would have died. And it’s also because of that, that I have to leave. This town isn’t big enough for two heroes. I need to go find my own town to protect.

    LEN
    Why are you telling me this?

    ASHLEIGH
    Because I want you to tell Scott all of this after I leave. I want him to know the truth. But if he knows this before I leave, he’ll try and stop me, and…
    (Wipes tears from her eyes)
    He’ll do it. I know I won’t be able to leave if he tries to stop me.

    LEN
    I understand.

    Ashleigh covers her face again just as ‘Fall To Peices’ by Avril Lavigne plays. She turns and glances at Nightshade. He glances back and she turns and runs out the back door.

    Nightshade looks around and sees that the Secret Agents have captured the remaining dirty cops and punks. He heads over to Len and helps him walk and they also make a quick escape out the back door.

    Michael looks around for Nightshade, but he’s nowhere to be found. He smiles.

    MICHAEL
    (Quietly)
    Good work Nightshade.


    EXT. ST. WAINLUK POLICE STATION – DAY

    The song continues to play as Nightshade rides up to the station and stops outside of it. There is a billboard put up with pictures of missing people from St. Wainluk and surrounding areas. Ashleigh’s picture is on there.

    Nightshade looks at it and takes it off the wall, folding it and putting it in his pocket. He gets on his motorcycle and drives away.


    INT. NIGHTSHADE’S NEW BASE - KITCHEN

    The song fades out. It’s obvious that a lot of time has passed, as Nightshade’s base is re-built. Scott has the kitchen table covered in tons of newspaper clippings and printed off Internet news articles, various parts circled.

    LEN
    She obviously doesn’t want to be found, Scott.

    SCOTT
    I don’t care. It’s all my fault. If I hadn’t hid from her for so long, she’d still be here. Save and sound. I need to find her.

    Len smiles.

    LEN
    Something tells me she’ll be fine on her own.

    Scott looks up at him.

    SCOTT
    Don’t you have something to fix?

    LEN
    No, I finally got the new base built. I think I’m gonna go take a break and…

    Len sees the look on Scott’s face. A look he knows all too well.

    LEN
    I’ll go find something to fix.

    Scott nods in agreement and Len backs up and then turns and leaves the room. Scott takes out the picture of Ashleigh that he took from the police station and lays it on the table.

    Scott
    Where are you?

    Len runs back into the room.

    LEN
    Scott, you’ll never believe this. The radio just said that some girl just robbed a bank by freezing the security guards with her mind!

    Scott looks up at Len. ‘Drowning’ by Crazy Town begins to play.

    SCOTT
    Time to take on another crazy bitch.

    He turns and walks out of the room to suit up.

    Fade out.

    End Credits role as the song continues to play.


    THE END
