Episode 16: The Beast Below
Scenes from the DVD set's "Final Shooting Script"
that do not appear in the episode.
EXT. PARIS OPERA LONG SHOT – DAY
[Establishing. Duncan, Tessa, and Richie climb the handsome steps and are admitted by a guard at the front door, as we hear some Voice Over dialogue.]
RICHIE (V.O.) - I bet you never thought I'd be bringing you to the Paris opera.
MacLEOD (V.O.) - You've got that right.
RICHIE (V.O.) - You should hear these guys. They sat in at a jazz club I was at a few nights ago and blew everyone away.
INT. FOYER – OPERA – DAY
[The conversation continues as the trio enter.]
TESSA - I thought they only did ballet here now?
Duncan admires his handiwork with a smile. A groan makes him turn to the prostrate Immortal, who, as Duncan watches, returns to life in the spot where he fell, mortally wounded.
After a time, Ursa opens his eyes, sees MacLeod, and grunts in alarm.]
DARIUS - [studied innocence] No!
[Duncan takes it, sniffs it, sips gingerly. The stuff is putrid.]
DARIUS - It's from a mold form.
[Duncan looks for a place to spit it out, then swallows.]
DARIUS - Very good for the circulation.
[Duncan glares and puts the cup down.]
MacLEOD - Do you remember anything else about him?
MacLEOD - That's what Tessa asked. I don't know.
CAROLYN - Someone wants to hurt me.
[Ursa reacts, looking and listening for any impending danger to his beloved.]
CAROLYN - It's a woman. [pleads] Please. She's coming. Take me with you . . . now.
[Ursa is torn. Then, carefully, he removes some wardrobe costumes and a trunk, revealing a secret door. With deft movements, he opens the door and steps back. With a smile and a touch of his cheek, she descends into the trap door.]
Richie and MacLeod's lines here are not in the Shooting Script.

JENNY - For a while. You know how it is on the road. But . . . Frank was married. I shouldn't be . . .
MacLEOD - It's okay. I won't tell anyone.
JENNY - I think Frank figured out that Carolyn was just using him to get more juice.
MacLEOD - Is that what you think?
JENNY - Yeah, I guess I do. [then] I really feel weird talking about this.
MacLEOD - I'm glad you did. [then] Richie's inside if you want to see him.
JENNY - Thanks. Look, I hope you don't think . . .
MacLEOD - I don't.
JENNY - Bye.
[She heads nervously onto the barge. MacLeod gets into his car, parked dockside.]
