Saanvi look up at the angel
Scene switches to Bethesda Fountain.
Saanvi looks up at the angel statue in the center of the fountain.
SAANVI: Oh! Oh, my God! She seemed so real. It’s fascinating.
MICHAELA: Feds are gonna be on our tail. We got to get him out of here.
Thomas looks up at Bethany
BETHANY: It’s okay. You’re safe now.
MICHAELA: Sorry, guys, but we got to go right now.
THOMAS: No. I cannot go.
SAANVI: You’ve been given massive doses of Haldol. We need to get you somewhere where you can detox.
Applying the Rule of Drama
(At this point in the show, my wife the RN was rather insistent that a patient given haloperidol in therapeutic doses when he doesn’t really need it will not have withdrawal symptoms and will not need detoxed. I have two responses to that: (1) we in the audience don’t know what other drugs Thomas might have been given, or how those drugs interact, while Saanvi does in-universe, so I think we can trust her judgment, and anyway (2) the Rule of Drama applies.)

BETHANY: He’s not coming. I’m so sorry. A lot has happened.
THOMAS: Five years? That is true?
MICHAELA: It is true. The three of us were on the plane, as well. We all lost five years.
THOMAS: No. No! – No!
BETHANY: I’m so, so sorry, baby. I’m sorry.
MICHAELA: Thomas, look at me. I am a cop. If your boyfriend is alive, I am gonna help you find him, I promise you that, but right now, we have to go because there are federal agents looking for you, and if they find you, you’ll be arrested as a stowaway.
BETHANY: Where? Where can we go?
Thomas is taken to a boiler room
Scene switches to a boiler room.

BETHANY: So basically, no one’s coming down here any time soon?[CELLPHONE CHIMES]
MICHAELA: Just us.
TEXT: Where are you?
