  2. 2. --I should warn you I am not like the rest-- OVER BLACK. The sound of A SILENCED GUN SHOT. BLOOD spills on to the screen. After a beat it begins to swirl and move as of it is being maneuvered by a brush or a fountain pen-- --The BLOOD begins to swirl into calligraphy. WORDS IN BLOOD: "No one can hate you more than someone who used to love you." ~RICK RIORDAN, THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS THE WORDS BLOW AWAY LIKE LIQUID SMOKE LEAVING US IN BLACK, UNTIL-- ii Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler

  4. 4. You're about ah month in to investigations, so you've surpassed your anniversary of waiting two fuck'n weeks into FTO to cause an IA investigation. CRAIG Yeah, we can't all be Angels like cousin Cam. CAM I'm no angel, fucker. I just know how to keep my cool when it matters. A skill you should really try'n master. Cuz Chance ain't gun'a allow it. Believe me I get angry when it counts. Let me find a Monte in a bad situation. Trust me. I'll make it much worse for 'em. Craig smiles. CAM (CONT’D) The differences is or the art rather, is knowing the most opportune moment to get angry. Not when you're up against the wall and not when you're out in the open. You gotta find that sweet spot, kid. THE DOOR OPENING BELL SOUNDS. A man, ABRAHAM MONTE walks in wearing a hoodie. A second later another guy walks in behind him. Abraham and his TAG-ALONG, sit at a table across the restaurant from Craig and Cam. CAM (CONT’D) Easy, Killer. They are just here to have breakfast. Just like us. Let's not have an all out brawl in front uh all of "Oceanway". Craig uses his middle finger to scratch the stubble on his jaw bone. CAM (CONT’D) Did you just flick them off? CRAIG Not necessarily. I might have given the bird in general... CAM (CONT’D) 2. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  5. 5. Abraham and his Tag-along stand and begin to walk over. --Uh oh!-- CRAIG (CONT’D) I mean even if I did, Law's on our side, right? Cam shakes his head as the two reach their table. ABRAHAM Do y'all got-ah-sec? CRAIG For you? (Beat) Fuck no. CAM Sweet spot, cuz. (Beat) What do you want Abraham? ABRAHAM We have something you have to hear. CRAIG Like, maybe your last wheezing fuck'n breath? ABRAHAM How about, I know about Coastline? Both Cam and Craig go silent and wide-eyed. ABRAHAM (CONT’D) Out back, now. EXT. FAMOUS AMOS / OUT BACK - MOMENTS LATER2 2 Cam walks out into the alley, followed by Abraham and his tag- along, followed by Craig. Once out side, Craig draws his side arm and back up pistol, POINTING THEM AT BOTH ABRAHAM AND TAG- ALONG'S HEAD, pushing them against the wall. TAG-ALONG Whoa! ABRAHAM Hey! CRAIG Shut the fuck up. CAM Right, so listen up. We're gona make this super easy for ya. (MORE) 3. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler

Tag-Along is SHOT IN THE FACE! The exit wound on the back of his skull SPURTS CRIMSON on the stucco behind him. Cam then is SHOT IN THE ARM AND SHOULDER as we-- ANGLE ON: THE SHOOTER. Off at the opening of the back alley wearing a tree-camouflage hoodie, jeans, and boots. CRAIG SHOOTS ABRAHAM! Craig then turns his fire arm on the shooter but is SHOT IN THE FLESHY PART OF HIS NECK AND SHOULDER before he can return fire. Everyone collapses into a bloody heap of-- Quiet Serenity. Peaceful Gore. Blood-soaked half-Living "Art". The BLOOD on the ground begins to ripple and maneuver as if a fountain pen or old-fashion writing quill is WRITING in the blood.

  7. 7. ACT ONE FADE IN. INT. OCEANWAY CRACK HOUSE - MAGIC HOUR - EARLIER3 3 The LAST OF THE SUN SHINES through a window into-- A dog pile of junkies. Ashtrays galore. Malt liquor bottles. We hear MATTRESS SPRINGS CREAKING WITH THE RHYTHM OF FORNICATION. Moving down the hall, we pass the room BROADCASTING the libidinous sounds and get a glimpse of the couple. Continuing on pass a room with more passed out junkies we finally come to the room at the end of the hallway-- In this room are only two people. Meet MINNIE MONTE, a fair skinned, distant, and removed young lady who has had some of the worst that life can give you sent her way. PULCHRITUDE. PESSIMISTIC. PIQUED. Then there is JAKE, your average hopheaded user and addict. His outfit looks like he fell into a good will wet and came out wearing whatever clung to him. TWITCHY. TORPID. THIRSTY. PUSH IN: On Minnie's arm, wrapped in a piece of rubber tubing. She smacks her fore arm a few times causing her VEIN TO PROTRUDE. Then she takes out a EMPTY SYRINGE WITH NO NEEDLE and feigns shooting up. JAKE How's the ride? How's the rise? Is it good? Is it good? Jake moves closer to her and begins to kiss at her neck and grope at her breast, with no response from her. Minnie, emotionlessly switches the syringe with one with an actual needle using sleight-of-hand and Jake's current distracted attention. MINNIE It's the best. Jake trails kisses up her neck and jaw line. 5. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  8. 8. MINNIE (CONT’D) Let me make you a fix. This is the greatest news Jake has ever heard! He readies his arm while Minnie FIRES A SPOON of tan powder. Minnie kisses his PROTRUDING VEIN then gives him a hit. MINNIE (CONT’D) This is just a taste of our "White Rhino". JAKE Why is it Tan? MINNIE Not my department. Jake's eyes begin to glaze and his stare to obscure. MINNIE (CONT’D) If it's too intense for you let me know and we'll make sure you get our less potent supply. JAKE Bitch, please. Jake pushes Minnie down on the bed and begins to remove her blouse, while kissing her neck. Once he has all but one button undone he BLACKS-OUT ON TOP OF HER. Minnie lies there a beat before maneuvering out from underneath of him. She takes out a bottle of hand sanitizer and cleans her hands then rubs some on her neck and jawline. MINNIE Tell your wife I said, "Hi". --Whoa!-- Minnie walks out of the room and closes the door behind her. She walks back to the main room. BOOM! The FLOOR OF THE HALLWAY EXPLODES from underneath the floor boards! BLINDED WITH RINGING AS WE-- FADE TO WHITE. 6. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  9. 9. EXT. OCEANWAY CRACK HOUSE - LATER4-A 4-A Marked units with lights on are parked around the house. An unmarked car pulls up-- Craig and Cam get out. CAM Boy, I tell you what! When I was a greenie I didn't get this kind of action until a year into investigations. CRAIG God must'ah knew you'se wasn't ready. CAM And you is? Cam laughs. A uniformed officer, let's call him UNIY ONE, walks up. UNIY ONE Hey sarge, the block is secured. We caught a few of them fleeing but I think there are a slew of em inside still. CAM No one has gone inside yet? UNIY ONE No. CRAIG Alright let's do this. CAM Slow your roll there, Rosco P Coltrane. We don't know anything about what happened nor what's going on right now up in yonder. Most likely it was a tiny meth lab. But! We don't know anything yet, so let's try'na get as much info, prior to barreling into what might be our death trap. (Beat) A'yight? Craig nods. 7. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  10. 10. CAM (CONT’D) (to UNIY ONE) Any of 'em said anything? UNIY ONE No, most of them are still geeked out. EMS said it was a good thing to. Had they ah been alert or braced, flinched they'd ah gotten hurt worse. INT. OCEANWAY CRACK HOUSE - SAME TIME5 5 Minnie lies face down where she landed. CAM (V.O.) Let's split up. Take a look around the perimeter. Meet back here. Minnie stirs then slowly stands-- DISORIENTED. RINGING. VERTIGINOUS. She shakes it all out of her head and looks back at the explosion hole. The SIREN LIGHTS out side grab her attention. MINNIE Fuck'n fuck! Minnie quietly, runs to the front door and sees Cam walk by one of the front windows! MINNIE (CONT’D) (Quietly) Fuck'n fuck. She turns and walks around the explosion hole, down the hall pass all the rooms, and begins to BOLT OUT THE BACK DOOR. EXT. OCEANWAY CRACK HOUSE - SAME TIME4-B 4-B Craig begins to walk pass the back door, which BUST OPEN with Minnie jutting out like a Kentucky stud out of the gate! Minnie sees him in her path and turns slightly so that her shoulder is the most forward part of her body. SHE SPEARS the surprised Craig, in the chest. He falls back and his skull smacks the pavement. --Owe!-- Minnie grabs, then PUNTS HIS FACE knocking him out completely, ALL OF THIS IN A FLASH. 8. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  11. 11. She GRABS HIS PISTOL from his holster and AIMS IT AT HIS HEAD. After a beat she EJECTS THE MAGAZINE AND CHUCKS IT into the bushes, followed by the round left in the chamber. Then she puts the pistol back in his holster. Minnie runs off and around the corner until-- WHAM! KAPLAT! She is clotheslined and hip tossed onto the neighbors yard by- - A younger, uniformed JSO officer. Meet officer CHANCE CAP JR or "LITTLE CHANCE", (LC), as he is known by. He is the youngest member of the CAP CLAN and only a year and a half off of FTO. ALTRUISTIC. AWKWARD. ADDLED. LITTLE CHANCE Easy now. Minnie gets her fist free and PUNCHES HIS JAW, then clenches him into a guillotine chokehold with the same arm. LITTLE CHANCE (CONT’D) Ugh, Hi I'm Chance. MINNIE Minnie. LITTLE CHANCE Nice to meet-- LC, bucks his hips, then spins around in a flash putting her head in-between his legs, in a choke. These two grapple for a good minute or so exchanging POSITIONS OF DOMINANCE, back and forth until-- Finally LC jumps back and draws his service pistol. Minnie stands slowly, hands in the air, and blows her bangs out from in front of her eyes. For the first time they get a good look at each other. LC sees her TRACK MARKS ARE JUST PEN DOTS. Minnie notices him noticing her. LC in return sees her admiring him. MINNIE Now what? Minnie takes a step back. Then another. 9. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  12. 12. LITTLE CHANCE Stop. She doesn't. LITTLE CHANCE (CONT’D) Stop. Minnie turns and runs away. LC drops his aim and hangs his head. INT. OCEANWAY CRACK HOUSE - LATER6 6 Cam pushes some of the rubble around with his foot. Forensics TAKES PICTURES and EVIDENCE. Craig leans against the hallway. THROUGH THE WINDOW: We can see a slew of junkies siting on the curb in front of a Uniformed Officer. JFRD INVESTIGATOR (O.C.) Yep! They were using Hypo- phosphorus Acid as a substitute for red phosphorus, which looks like they stole from Growth Solutions over on Eastport according to the container remains. CAM You think they're our "Walter Whites"? The investigator sticks his head up and out of the explosion hole. JFRD INVESTIGATOR Nah. These were first timers who got high during their first cook. The quality would have been shit and this couldn't produce the amount y'all've been seeing. CAM Figured as much. JFRD INVESTIGATOR Everyone accounted for? 10. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  13. 13. CAM Not sure. I think so. Six dead and the rest are still coming down off the ride. Cam looks back at Craig. CRAIG Ugh, (Clears throat) yeah. Ain't see no one, after getting here. CAM Where the fuck is your magazine? Craig grabs at his pistol. CRAIG Fuck me. Craig runs out back. CAM Jerry, you wanna grab some breakfast? Me and boy wonder there are headed to Famous Amos if you want to join. JFRD INVESTIGATOR Nah! I'm alright, gotta get my kids to school. INT. BAPTIST MEDICAL CENTER / ER - DAY - REAL TIME7 7 BACK IN REAL TIME, An ER NURSE walks out of a room and over to the nurses station. ER NURSE The cop in Twelve must think he's at The Ritz-Carlton.

CAM (CONT’D) Chance! They know! They fuck'n know! CHANCE Calm down. Tell me what happened. CAM They know about Coast-- --Chance PUNCHES CAM IN THE TEMPLE knocking him out cold. The ER nurse walks in. LITTLE CHANCE It's good to see him resting so peacefully. ER NURSE He asked for socks? She holds out the red hospital socks. CHANCE God bless ya, he's very cold natured. She smiles, places the socks on his bed, then exits. CHANCE (CONT’D) Find out what JSO is working off duty here tonight. If they are on the payroll fine, if not-- LITTLE CHANCE --then I'm working off duty here tonight. Chance nods, takes out a can of dip, packs it, then puts a pinch in his lip. CHANCE Find out what happened. 12. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  15. 15. Chance exits. EXT. BAPTIST MEDICAL CENTER / ER / ENTRANCE - MOMENTS LATER9 9 Chance walks out to a slew of press. REPORTER ONE Sheriff Cap? What happened? REPORTER TWO Sheriff Cap? Was this an attack on law enforcements? CHANCE Look, now y'all know I can't say anything official with out my senior public affairs and relations officer here. (Beat) But I will say this! And hopefully not get into too much trouble. Several laugh. CHANCE (CONT’D) I am livid that this happened to members of my family. When I say family I mean. Both by blood and my brothers in blue. However (Beat) that will not thwart our ever endeavors to get to the bottom of it unbiasedly. We will look into this to find out the truth and then enforce the law accordingly. That is all. Chance spits then exit. INT. OCEANWAY VILLAGE TRAILER PARK / MONTE RESIDENCE - DAY10 10 Minnie walks in. Two ladies jump up. Meet MARY MONTE (49) her stepmother and MOLIE MONTE (16) her half sister. They run to hug her. MARY Minnie! My Gawd, Minnie! We figured you'se dead! MOLIE Daddy and Mark are out looking for you. MINNIE I'm fine. 13. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  16. 16. MOLIE Oh, Minnie! We been up all night, balling our eyes out and'ya come back with, "I'm fine". Fuck you! Mary smacks Molie. MINNIE I'll try and come back more hurt next time. MARY That ain't what she meant. MINNIE I know what she meant, mom. The door opens and two guys walk in. Meet MARCUS MONTE, the Monte patriarch and head of all the family's criminal affairs. DETACHED. DISCOURTEOUS. DIRECT. As well as MARK MONTE, Marcus's son who runs the narcotic business. ADEPT. ANGRY. ALERT. (The shooter from the alley.) MARCUS You're alive. Minnie nods. MARK How did it go? MINNIE Well, besides the explosion I think we have a slew of new customers. MARK Good. Glad you'se alright. Minnie nods. MINNIE I'm going to take a shower and get some sleep. MARY Okay, baby. INT.

  17. 17. Minnie walks into her living room, sits down on her row of couch cushions, and scoots back so that her back is against the wall. With a soft thud, she leans her head back. Blank stare. Emotionless. Single tear. MINNIE (Barely audible) Mom. INT. LC'S HOUSE / BATHROOM - SAME TIME12 12 LC washes the last of the shampoo out of his hair and then exits the shower. NAKED, we can see his upper body is covered in WINDING TATTOO ARTWORK, OF THORNS from his wrist up his arm around his torso, down his other arm and ending on his other wrist. He wraps a towel around his waist and begins to brush his teeth. Blank stare. Emotionless. Smile? A woman walks in the bathroom holding a one year old. LITTLE CHANCE Hey baby and my baby boy. LC turns and kisses his wife, then son, his wife, then son over and over until his son begins a giggle fit. --What the Romeo Character can't be happily married with a kid?-- LC grabs his son, walks out of the bathroom, and has a seat on their plush couch in the living room. Meet CECILIA CAP, LC's gorgeous wife and baby's mother. SWEET. STUNNING. SPRITELY. CECILIA How was work? LITTLE CHANCE Fine. LC kisses his baby boy's neck to more giggles. As we-- FADE TO BLACK. 15. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  18. 18. ACT TWO FADE IN. EXT. WOODS - DAY - REAL TIME13 13 Thick brush. Squirrels chase each other around a tree. A tiny clearing with a quaint cabin nestled amongst the woods. INT. CABIN IN THE WOODS - SAME TIME14 14 A small framed individual is HUNG WITH A SACK OVER THEIR HEAD, SUSPENDED ABOVE THE MOUTH OF AN ANTIQUE WELL, with the rope wrapped around their waist, hands tied behind their back, and a cable attached to the rope around their waist.. --Are they dead?-- A PISTOL STICKS INTO FRAME AND TAPS THE SACK. The suspended individual shutters and SCREAMS MUFFLED SQUEALS. --Guess not-- PULLING BACK: The pistol wielder is Chance. Chance spins the person by twirling them with his pistol. Once they begin to continually rotate, freely. Chance-- FIRES A SHOT right beside their head and kicks a lever on the wench holding the spool of cable they are tied to. THE REELING OF THE SPOOL. SCREAMING. THAT PERSON PLUNGES INTO THE WELL. Followed by a SPLASH. Chance presses a button on the wench and the body shoots back up and out of the well. 16. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  19. 19. Swinging, trembling, and wet now. Chance spins them again, fires another shot beside the sack, drops them down the well, and wrenches them back up, again. This happens two more times. Chance removes the sack, REVEALING IT'S IS MOLIE with a fabric gag in her mouth! Chance holsters his pistol in a concealment holster and fingers the gag out of her mouth. CHANCE What do you know about Coastline? And how do y'all know? MOLIE I don't-- Chance's foot launches for the wench. MOLIE (CONT’D) Please! Don't! She trembles. Chance takes out a can of dip and begins to pack it. CHANCE Young lady if you have any, kind- ah, desire or inclinations of continuing to draw breath. I'd start ah talking sooner rather then, well, they ain't gona be a later, sweetheart. She continues to tremble. MOLIE Puh, puh please. I, I ain't involved in any uh that. CHANCE Hmm. Chance kicks the wench and Molie plunges back down into the well, along with the sound of her SCREAM. SPLASH. Chance puts a pinch of dip in his lip and pockets the can. Chance stares as the cable wiggle for a beat. 17. Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler Louis Sihler
  20. 20. Chance turns to face-- WRAPPED IN MANY BANDAGES, Cam and Craig stand on either side of the door, opposite the well, previously behind Chance. CHANCE (CONT’D) When the cable stills or the sound of the bubbles stop wrench her back up. Resuscitate if need be. Ask her one mo gain. Then drop her one last time, let her go else where's. Do not be seen. CAM Yes, sir. Chance exits. Craig jumps over and raises Molie-- She emerges, sopping, slowly from the well opening with her head hanging. MATCH CUT TO: EXT.
