Unequivocal Evidence

Scene shifts to the laboratory at the hospital.

SAANVI: James Griffin’s death, it’s a game-changer. The autopsy shows unequivocal evidence of death by drowning.

MICHAELA: He drowned on dry land?

SAANVI: Which is, of course, impossible.

BEN: What about secondary drowning? I mean, I’ve heard stories about kids being pulled out of pools – and dying hours later.

SAANVI: Well, this was days later. And the video he appears to expel more water than body mass. I don’t think science can explain this any more than it can explain us.

MICHAELA: Yeah, well, I’ve got an explanation for it; he abused the callings, and that’s what got him killed. Wait till the Believers find out about this.

A Troubling Discovery

SAANVI: Yeah, you’re right, but they’re not our only problem. The blood marker’s been discovered.

BEN: In Griffin’s blood?

SAANVI: And in Cal’s.

Dramatic music plays.

SAANVI: Look, there was always a risk that someone was gonna notice the anomaly in Cal’s labs, but until Griffin, no one had a reason to look. I will do what I can to bury the findings, but if I can’t, it’s not gonna be much longer, Ben, before the larger medical community catches wind of it, and then they will—

BEN: And they’ll want to examine Cal more closely.


Reminder to See Therapist

A reminder alert beeps on Saanvi’s computer. She sighs.

SAANVI: Okay. I’m sorry to dump and run, but I have an appointment with a therapist. If you’re worried about what I’m gonna say—

BEN: No, no, no, of course not. Nothing’s more important than you getting the help you need. I’ll call you later.
