SCENE TWO

EXT. NEARBY STREET NIGHT

[A woman walks hurriedly with her young son toward the nearby street corner, made darker by the broken street lamp that hangs above it. They are poor, but clean. Her hand clasps his firmly. She walks determinedly forward, making no eye contact with others on the street. A car moves swiftly down the street. It is speeding, its driver wanting to get out of the neighborhood. The woman and child are focused on getting home, wherever home is. They move swiftly and heedlessly into the intersection. Both mother and child remain unaware of the car that is hurtling down the dark street toward them. The woman and child are walking purposefully, eyes forward, in the middle of the street. The car goes into the intersection.]

 

INT. CAR NIGHT

[The nameless driver sees:]

[THE DRIVER'S POV]

[The woman and child in the car's path. We stay with the POV as the driver reacts.]

[IN SLOW MOTION]

[The woman screams and protectively pulls the child behind her. The driver turns his wheel hard. The car spins right and spins straight toward Kirin and his followers. Through the windshield we now see Kirin and his followers. Kirin reacts to the oncoming vehicle. He pushes Matthew out of the way. The car hits Kirin. His body smashes into the windshield, shattering it. The car continues into the wall with a thundering crash.]

 

EXT. STREET NIGHT

[IN REAL TIME]

[People recovering from the shock. The car's radiator is broken. It spews forth steam. The camera finds -- John Kirin lying on the ground in a very unnatural position. The blood seeps from the corner of his mouth. He is near death.]

SCENE NINE

 
MacLEOD - There's a truck coming.

[Kirin nods. He starts walking down the road. MacLeod turns back to his car as a battered old truck passes by. MacLeod climbs in his car, starts the engine and backs up. He stops to see: Kirin puts out his thumb. The truck stops. Kirin throws his suitcase into the back of the truck, climbs in and drives off.]

[On MacLeod watching for a beat, as the truck pulls away.]
