Scenes from the DVD set's "Final Shooting Script"
that do not appear in the episode.
EXT. COUNTRYSIDE - NIGHT
[SEARCHLIGHTS arc over the landscape as POLICE CARS comb the streets. FOLLOW ONE CAR as it passes over a small culvert. We PAN DOWN to find -- Kyra, cowering in the culvert, shaking uncontrollably in her thin gown. It's not just the cold, the water drizzling over her hair and shoulders -- her shattered mind has no idea who she is, or why this is happening to her. And OFF her fear--]
MACLEOD - According to this you were found two weeks ago, wandering in a field. Your clothes were torn, and you were covered with blood. No I.D. You couldn't talk... [a look] Or you wouldn't. Ring a bell?
[She shakes her head. Nothing.]
This scene takes place at the end of Act Three in the original shooting script. (see SCENE EIGHT)

EXT. BARGE - LATE AFTERNOON
[On a table, two EMPTY PLATES with remnants of a large meal. Hovering over a third plate, Kyra grips a cooked chicken, tearing into it like Henry VIII. MacLeod is uncorking a bottle of wine, watching incredulously as she devours everything in her path.
MACLEOD - I take it you liked the chicken.
[She shrugs, makes a non-committal noise, tearing off a chunk of chicken. He places the two glasses out and pours.]
[MacLeod nods. He goes below deck. Kyra, deeply troubled, drinks in the night air, trying to calm herself. As she does, on the Quai below -- A COUPLE passes, arm in arm, lovers out for a late stroll. As Kyra watches them, she suddenly sees--]
[FLASH - KYRA’S MEMORY -- A MAN'S FACE: Handsome, bearded, late 40s -- smiling with obvious love.]
[RESUME KYRA: the flash is gone.]
KYRA - Who are you... who are you?! [She tries again...]
[ANOTHER FLASH - KYRA’S MEMORY: the interior of an APARTMENT -- and the SAME MAN standing in it. As he turns to look at her the image fades.]
[RESUME KYRA: The memories are tantalizingly, agonizingly out of reach. She digs her fists into her temples, tries to force them to come. Finally--]
[FLASH - KYRA’S MEMORY - AN APARTMENT: An EXTERIOR with an elegant facade. And in the entranceway the DISTINCTIVE STATUE she stumbled past before, when she ran from the man with the briefcase.]
[RESUME KYRA reacting in shock. She KNOWS that statue... and she knows where she saw it last. And OFF her face, as she leaves the barge--]
In the original shooting script, the scene at Vladic's place (see SCENE THREE) takes place here, while this scene takes place at the beginning of Act Three.

KYRA - (O.S.) I don't know about you...
[ANGLE - THE BALCONY where KYRA stands on the railing, balancing on one leg, like a tai-chi version of Isadora Duncan.]
KYRA - (CONT'D) But I wasn't planning on wearing any clothes. [beat] You know there's a fabulous view from up here?
KYRA - Always late. [between kisses] Which means... we have a few moments...
EXT. RADOVIC'S PLACE - NIGHT - ESTABLISHING
RADOVIC - (O.S.) I wouldn't be too concerned about it.
INT. RADOVIC'S PLACE - NIGHT
[On the TAXIDERMY TABLE, the body of Lazlo is laid out. Radovic is looking him over with detached curiosity as an upset Zep stands nearby.]
RADOVIC - You did well.
ZEP - You call this well?! Lazlo's dead.
RADOVIC - True. He's not going dancing.
[He walks around Lazlo, looks at him thoughtfully.]
RADOVIC - (CONT'D) If you really miss him, I could have him mounted.
[He puts his thumbs in Lazlo's mouth, pulls the lips into a snarl, and considers the effect.]
RADOVIC - (CONT'D) An improvement, I think. [releasing the lips] Too bad I couldn't make him smarter.
ZEP - General, she walked right up to us and shot him! Through the door!
EXT. LUMITON POWER STATION - DAY - ESTABLISHING
[A huge, squat utilitarian building, several stories high. State-of-the-art megawatts, forty years too late. Nuclear power has made it a dinosaur.]
EXT. LUMITON POWER STATION - ROOF - DAY
[A broad stretch of uneven concrete with an ELEVATOR HOUSING, several large VENTILATOR SHAFTS. Zep is there, another of Radovic's men, TOVIC. Both armed with Uzis -- both pulled from the same temp pool. They spread out across the roof, patrolling the perimeter.]
This parting line, surprisingly, is not in the original shooting script.
