Dr. Syber: He claims to be someone else.

Orderly: It’s not the first time he said this. I understand your stance in science, Dr. Syber, but for him. The simple science is that he kills for a living, and he deserves death.

(Cuts to the electronics warehouse as we see the logo and then the camera shifts to a 2009 Ford Mustang driving up and stopping; Bruce exits out of it and surveys the warehouse as it appears locked and ponders what now)

Bruce: (Thinking if there is any workers) Hello? Anyone?!

(Not hearing anything)

Bruce: My name’s Bruce Wayne!

(Still not hearing anything)

Bruce: Just great. (About to turn around to leave and try to fake something to the board tomorrow)

Orderly: So what is this process you want to do, doc?

Dr. Syber: It’s called electrohypnotisnism.

Orderly: What in the world is that?

Dr. Syber: It’s like electro shock therapy, but it’s a simple, yet complex process when comes to science. I would have to physically change his persona and his entire demeanor.

(Shifts to see the view of Jan who unaware to them is Leo)

Orderly: So you’re saying, you’re making a whole new being.

Dr. Syber: Precisely. It’s extremely painful, but this is my breakthrough. A criminal like him will be my perfect guinea pig to prove to critics that I can cure a killer or a psychopath.

Orderly: (Not saying anything)

Dr. Syber: The sooner we get forward on the process, the better.

Orderly: I think you should go on with that.

Leo (Jan): It still doesn’t give you the right to barge in without letting me know you were coming.

Julie: Well, excuse me if I didn’t call. (About to head out)

Leo (Jan): Why are you here anyway?

Julie: To try to figure out if this person I’m talking to is actually the real Leo.

Leo (Jan): I’m the real Leo.

Julie: Not with the Tony Soprano attitude.

Leo (Jan): Listen, I’m sorry.

Julie: (Realizing something is not right) I think I have to go.

(Soon Leo grabbed hold of her arm)

Julie: (Feeling her arm hurting as Leo is forcibly grabbing it) Hey!

Leo (Jan): I said I was sorry!

Julie: (Definitely realizing something is not right) I really have to go.

Leo (Jan): No! (Squeezing her arm)

Julie: Ouch! Let go!

Victor: You better.

(Brian about to exit)

Victor: Brian, wait!

Bruce: Are you sure Leo attacked you?

Julie: Yeah!

Bruce: That’s not like him.

Julie: It wasn’t. We know him, and that wasn’t Leo.

Bruce: (Treating her arm with some smoothing ointment) Something happened to him yesterday to have him act like a…

Julie: Jerk.

Bruce: Where did Lewis tell you Leo worked at?

Julie: I think it was…Arkham.

Bruce: Arkham?!

Julie: I was surprised like you were.

Bruce: Whatever happened with Leo happened there.

Julie: So you think some crazy inmate did something to Leo like brainwashed him or something.

Bruce: I don’t know.

Julie: The best thing is to talk to Leo again.

Bruce: No! I don’t want you to get hurt again.

Julie: Last time will be different.

Jan (Leo): For the millionth time, I’m not this serial killer.

Orderly: Oh yeah, explain why you look exactly like him.

Jan (Leo): Well I might be unless he transferred my mind into his body and his unto mines.

Orderly: Oh. No matter, you’re still the cold hearted creep that killed five innocents. I wanted to transfer you to Blackgate, but the doc wants to cure you; if it was me, I would lock you up in solitary.

Orderly: Don’t push it!

Jan (Leo): Or you are going to do what?

Lindsey: (Trying to believe if he is the real Leo) Who are you?

Leo (Jan): Certainly, not the person who cares about a hopeless female like yourself.

Lindsey: (Stunned)

(Leo then pushes to get down and fold her legs like Cindy)

Leo (Jan): And to think, I ever had feelings for you. (He leaves)

(Cuts off to a stunned and scared Lindsey as she is tearing up after hearing those hurtful comments)

  • Ext. Maze Field

(Cuts to the field 10 minutes later as we see Bruce driving his Mustang on the road and talking to Lucius)

Bruce: (Talking to Lucius) Are you sure this is the location you tracked his cellphone? (After listening to him) Yeah, thanks a lot. I owe you, Lucius. (He hangs up)

(Suddenly we see Jan-possessed Leo driving his Ford Fusion and spot the Mustang along with Bruce)

Leo (Jan): Well, well!

Bruce: (Seeing him)

(Bruce soon forces Leo to drive off to side lane onto the field ground; Leo exits out of the car as he sees Bruce; Bruce soon stops his car and exits out as well)

Leo (Jan): Sorry if I didn’t call you, but you didn’t have to run me off the road.

Bruce: Quit the acting. I know you’re not the real Leo.

Leo (Jan): I am.

Bruce: You may have his memories, but I can assure you, you’re not him.

Leo (Jan): Come on, Bruce. Stop being Sigmund Fraud for a sec and start talking as friends.

Bruce: Friends don’t hurt friends or don’t treat their girlfriends like dirt.

Leo (Jan): You mean Julie and Lindsey. They didn’t understand.

Bruce: But I do.

Leo (Jan): So why the cloak and dagger. You’re my best friend.

Bruce: Like I said, you’re not my best friend; what you did with him? Where’s Leo?

Leo (Jan): I am Leo!

Bruce: You’re not him!

Leo (Jan): Are you deaf and blind. I have his skin, his eyes, his mouth, his hair; I’m Leo.

Bruce: Yet you didn’t say one other important factor.

Leo (Jan): Oh yeah, and what’s that?

Bruce: His heart!

Leo (Jan): I forgot to say that.

Bruce: No you see, Leo never missed saying he has a heart. And in the fact you didn’t mention it, proves you’re from Arkham. And how you treat girls, feels like love is a irrelevant term in your dictionary.

Leo (Jan): Listen.

Bruce: No you listen whoever you are, I know my best friend don’t act like this. And try to kill people.

Leo (Jan): (Shocked he found out)

Bruce: What’s the matter, disappointed I spoiled your ulterior motive; or maybe it’s the name, Jan.

Leo (Jan): (Stunned)

Bruce: That’s right, Jan. I uncover you’re a Phoenix-infected with the power to switch minds.

Leo (Jan): Well I can’t hide under this façade for long, yeah you’re right. I saw your friend as my one way ticket to freedom, so I used him and I guess he’s rotting inside my body locked up in Arkham.

Bruce: (Feeling he has to do something)

Leo (Jan): I don’t think so! (He pulls out his gun) Better not try anything or you going to face a untimely death, Mr. Bruce Wayne, just like your parents.

Bruce: (Getting angry)

Leo (Jan): Don’t try it.

Voice: I don’t think so.

Leo (Jan): (Turns around to see who said that)

Bruce: (Wondering who say that and look the same way)

(Shifts to see its Leo-possessed Jan)

Bruce: Leo?!

Jan (Leo): Yup, it’s me. Now it’s time to restore what you took from me, you freak.

Leo (Jan): I don’t think so. (He aims the gun at his own body and tries to fire)

(Noticing he has to stop him, Bruce knocks the gun down; soon we see Bruce and the Jan-possessed Leo fighting and struggling over the control of the gun; the gun suddenly flies to the ground and both tries to get it from each other)

Leo (Jan): You’re not stopping me.

Bruce: (Controlling the gun, but gets sucker punched by Leo as he stands up)

Leo (Jan): (Now with the control of the gun) Who has the power now?!

Jan (Leo): Surely not you!

Leo (Jan): What the…

(Soon we see Leo using his own hand to put it on Jan’s forehead)

Leo (Jan): No! What are you doing?

Jan (Leo): Getting back what was taken from me!

(Bruce holds onto Leo’s foot)

Leo (Jan): No!!

(Soon we see the phoenix powers going reverse as we see Jan’s mind and then we see Leo’s mind crossing each other; we see that Jan’s mind returning to his body and Leo’s mind returning to his; the retransfer is complete)

(Feeling he is back to his normal self, Leo punches Jan out cold; we soon see Jan falling down to the ground unconscious)

Leo: (Helping Bruce back on his feet)

Bruce: Okay, are you, you?

Leo: Yes! Finally! I really did miss me!

Bruce: Seems everything is back to normal.

Leo: I don’t think so. Lucius told me Lindsey and that deceased husband’s wife is trapped in that factory.

Bruce: How did Lucius?

Leo: Told him the stuff only you and him should know.

Bruce: That’s my buddy.

Leo: Now let’s save those girls. The Dangerous Duo is back in action!

Bruce: (Smiling) Nice to know the real Leo is back.

Leo: And good riddance!

(Cuts off to Bruce and Leo)

(Fades out)

Victor: For us to put this hatred beside.

Anna: What’s the catch?

Victor: There’s no catch.

Anna: I don’t trust you.

Victor: And I don’t trust you either, but I have to like you.

Anna: (Feeling some respect)

Victor: If I want to be in my son’s life, I have to like you.

Anna: I just want to be part of the family.

Victor: Just my one warning, don’t you split me and my son. This little bond we’re forming will instantly fade away if you force my son out of my life.

Anna: I promise I won’t.

Victor: Good.

Anna: So why the drastic change.

Victor: Like I said, my son is my universe. If I lose him, I don’t know what to do.

(The camera views the picture of the kid Bruce along with Alfred in front of Thomas and Martha’s graves)

Roman: If I wanted to kill the Waynes myself, I would, but they deserve to die.

Female: Unfortunately, their kid survived that attack.

Roman: Whoever says this is over.

Female: (Confused)

Roman: I want to put fear onto this city and since my family failed to take over when the Waynes was protecting Gotham; no more. Now is time for my rise! My control! Gotham’s true scion will be their undoing.

Female: (Still confused) How?

Roman: Simple, use a symbol for fear. (Seeing a matchstick box with a skull symbol) Symbol of fear. (Smiling)

  • Int. Dark Room - Present

(Flashes back to the present as we see Roman turned Black Mask)

Bruce: I was. I stop the theft and brought him to the police. I was wondering what those microchips were.

  • Int. Wayne Industries – Gideon’s Office

(Cuts back to Gideon)

Gideon: The C3-ES chips are very special. We are making interesting programs with them and it would provide a great forward for Wayne Industries to revolutionize the Green industry.

  • Int. Manor – Foyer

(Cuts upstairs into his room as we see Bruce sitting on his bed; Julie soon enters as the song “Don’t Walk Away” by Sick Puppies starts playing in the background)

Julie: I didn’t notice you were here.

Bruce: Yeah.

Julie: I just found out by a jubilant Leo from the phone he’s back to his normal self right after he apologizes to whatever he did to me.

Bruce: Yup, the inmate used his Phoenix powers to switch his and Leo’s minds to each other’s bodies.

Julie: (Feeling disgusted) Thank goodness, that creep didn’t kiss me. I mean that inmate, not Leo.

Bruce: I understand.

(The song continues)

Julie: (Sitting next to him) So where is the mind-switching inmate?

Bruce: Megan used her influences to bring him to Blackgate instead of Arkham, and now he has total isolation from anyone for life.

Julie: Thank goodness. God forbid that another event happens again.

Bruce: You ever had a chance to talk to Lindsey?

Julie: I didn’t. Hopefully Leo will have a better chance talking to her. I don’t want them to split.

Bruce: I let her know about what happened; it wasn’t Leo’s fault; Jan tapped into Leo’s memories to fool her.

Julie: So you’re actually saying some of those hurtful words Leo didn’t mean to tell her have some purpose.

Bruce: No, it just that Leo never opened up his true feelings with her.

Julie: Like you.

(The song continues)

Bruce: (Remembering)

Julie: Sorry!

Bruce: No you’re right. I myself haven’t come forward to my real feelings towards you.

Julie: Are you scared?

Bruce: No.

Julie: Then what?

Bruce: It just that I don’t want…

Julie: Want what?

Bruce: (Hesitating to say it)

Julie: Want what?!

Bruce: I don’t want to lose you okay!

Julie: (A little stunned)

Bruce: You almost died in that car accident; and that time you suffered from Crane’s fear poison, you almost died if I wasn’t there to take you to the hospital in time.

Julie: (Understanding his pain)

(The song continues)

Bruce: I wish I never left you in L.A.

Julie: But Leo was there to.

Bruce: I know, just that I was with you. You said why I always save you; well, because you’re my best friend, and I care for you deeply. I protect you because I really care about you.

Julie: (Feeling passionate about his speech) I understand now.

Bruce: (Shaking his head as he agrees)

Julie: (Thinking about the time) well look at the time, I think I should go. (She kisses him on the cheeks while she stands up and heads out) Bye.

Bruce: (Pondering about this choice he’s going to make) Stay!

Julie: (Stopping as she hears it)

Bruce: Don’t go! Stay; stay with me.

Julie: (Listening to that offer as she chooses what to do)

Lindsey: You are?!

Leo: I wasn’t myself.

Lindsey: Bruce told me what happened.

Leo: So can I be forgiven?

Lindsey: I don’t know if you can.

Leo: What that means?

(The song continues)

Lindsey: It means you insulted my character and my love for you.

Leo: You know I didn’t mean any of that; it wasn’t me.

Lindsey: But somehow, he knew I was your girlfriend and Bruce and Julie were your friends; your house; your school.

Leo: (Can’t say anything)

Lindsey: I understand you weren’t there mentally, but physically and emotionally you was there.

Leo: (Getting upset) I care about you.

Lindsey: (Starting to tear up) Well say it straight, do you care about me or do you think I’m a hopeless female.

Leo: I always care about you.

Lindsey: Do you love me?

Leo: (Hesitating)

(The song reaching to its end)

Lindsey: Well say it straight. Tell me the truth; you’re the real Leo, so tell me…do you love me?

Leo: (Hesitating)

Lindsey: (Staring to cry a bit) Leo, please!

Leo: I love you as a friend, but I don’t love you right no; one day. Please, Lindsey I just need time.

Lindsey: (Realizing the truth; she wipes away her tears) Well since that is taken care of, considered this relationship over.

Leo: (Stunned) Lindsey!

(The song continues)

Lindsey: It’s over! Leo, it’s over! (Standing up and walks away while crying)

Leo: (Realizing his relationship is over, he has nothing else but to put head down in shame and feel he torn his relationship apart)
