[Act I]

  • Ext. Wayne Manor

(Cuts to the view of the manor as we see “48 Hours Ago” from what we seen at the teaser)

  • Int. Bruce’s bedroom

(Cuts inside in the bedroom as we see Alfred entering with a breakfast tray)

Alfred: Rise and shine, Master Bruce. (Putting the tray near the bed as he opens up the blinds; he looks back and notices a interesting surprise)

(Shifts to the bed as we see Bruce is not even in the covers)

Alfred: (Confused) Master Bruce?! Master Bruce! (Heading out)

(Cuts off to Alfred trying to find Bruce)

  • Int. Basement

(Cuts downstairs a few minutes as we see Alfred already checked the rooms finally spotting him looking at something)

Alfred: Master Bruce?

Bruce: (Looking at an old picture of his father, Thomas, and the first time Wayne Industries opened)

Alfred: (Checking out what Bruce is looking, and spots the picture) Oh! I don’t remember that picture.

Bruce: Yeah, this is the first time looking at this. The company was everything my father imagined it to be, or maybe it was just a Faust prediction

Alfred: No Master Bruce. Master Thomas was a pioneer. He wanted to help bring Gotham peace and a new future.

Bruce: Yeah but not today. (He soon throws the old picture far)

(The picture inside the frame crashes in the wall and the shards of glass and picture ripple to the ground)

Alfred: Master Bruce! What are you doing!? (Rushing to get and protect the fragile three decade-old picture)

Bruce: My father lied.

Alfred: What do you mean?

Bruce: The Company he nearly spent his entire life trying to build; trying to make it a harbinger for justice. Wayne Industries was supposed to be a symbol for justice to eliminate all of the corruption, yet now it’s not. It’s corrupted itself.

Alfred: It’s about the conspiracy.

Bruce: How can I be so blind to notice while I was working there, the company has been tainted from the inside?

Alfred: Don’t blame yourself!

Bruce: No, I have to! My incompetence into believing there was ever a conspiracy inside Wayne Industries mess me up, but from those military fanatics kidnapping me to that renegade FBI agent to now. Everything I thought my father wanted for this company is going to be gone because now this so-called Omicron is trying to ruin it. Trying to ruin what my father accomplished.

Alfred: This Omicron can be stop by the proper forces; you don’t half to fight this war, Master Bruce.

Bruce: They are trying to ruin my father’s reputation! The company’s reputation! And Gotham!

Alfred: Don’t be consumed.

Bruce: Maybe it’s already too late. I’m not going to let them destroy what Gotham has left to find peace and a stable future. I won’t let that happen! (Leaving)

Alfred: Master Bruce! Master Bruce!

(Bruce ignoring Alfred heads upstairs)

(Shifts back to Alfred who is disappointed and upset now that Bruce knows there is a conspiracy and whose behind it)

(Cuts off to Alfred)

  • Ext. Powers Mansion

(Cuts to the mansion)

  • Int. Library

(Cuts to Victor looking at something important as he viewing a file and he notices head security guard, Brian, entering with an interesting guest)

Brian: Sir, Sean Carver has arrived per your request.

Victor: Good.

(Brian nodding back and heads out)

Sean: So, Vick what’s up?

Victor: Don’t Vick me, Sean. (Standing up) I call you for help seemingly you’re the only one that I can trust.

Sean: (Blushing) I’m flatter. After those failed attempts on your life, it seems you might have a change of heart.

Victor: Speaking of heart. (He slightly rubs his left chest area a bit) You understand the favor I’m asking you.

Sean: Of course; of course.

Victor: Don’t let that witch trick you.

Sean: You know me Vick; I don’t succumb to trickery because I do the trickery.

Victor: (smiling)

Sean: So are you going to go to the rehearsal/engagement party thing tomorrow.

Victor: No.

Sean: Father of the groom not going. I’m shocked!

Victor: You think this is all fun and games, Sean, but remember if you don’t make this happen I promise you boarding school will be the least of your problems.

Sean: (Smiling) I’ll make sure of it. The party is going to be a blast no pun intended. (Giggling)

(Sean soon exits the room)

Victor: (Feeling partnering with Sean could be a fatal mistake; he then heads back to his desk and retrieves a small container which inside we see black-colored pills; he takes one and swallow it realizing something about health-wise is not right)

(Cuts off to Victor)

  • Int. Hallway

(Cuts to the hallway as we see Jason about to enter the library until he sees Sean)

Jason: Everything was going to perfect until I see you.

Sean: Don’t worry man, I won’t be a distraction. I promise.

Jason: See you at the dinner.

Sean: Oh thank you, I’ll be proud to come.

Jason: (Smirking a bit)

Sean: See you soon. (Heading out)

Jason: (Worrying about Sean’s behavior, but feel he may have no other choice)

(Cuts off to Jason as he enters the library)

  • Int. Library

(Cuts back to the library as Jason enters)

Jason: Why did Sean came here? What did he want from you?

Victor: I think he wanted you.

Jason: Hmm. I bypassed him at the hallway.

Victor: So the dinner, is there a possibility I can be invited.

Jason: I don’t know dad maybe I should think about it when the time comes.

Victor: Please Jason; I’m just trying to be your father!

Jason: I know, but its too late. I needed a father when I was born and now you have the audacity to say that you’re trying now. Guess, you made my decision a lot easier. (Heading out)

Victor: Jason! Jason!

(We soon see another female appearing and then a male; we notices the female is Dr. Janice Hughes and the man as we could see the tag is Dr. Olen Wiliker)

Huntress: (Turning around to see the scientists) Is Project Celadon a go.

Wiliker: Ummm… (Hesitating)

Huntress: (Anxious) and…?

Hughes: It’s a go. (Looking at Olen)

Alfred: Oooh that’s exciting!

Julie: Aunt Sue even tried to tell me if I can go with her.

Alfred: Are you?

Julie: I never really left Gotham until that time I had to host that special concert back in Los Angeles.

Alfred: Maybe this should be a great time, a fun time!

Julie: (Smiling) I was going to tell Bruce, but he failed to meet me at Rave earlier today.

Alfred: He’s been off lately.

Julie: Remember, you were supposed to help me at Rave. I told you a day ago, I might need some help and you said I will help you.

Bruce: Maybe I forgot (Starting to think about how he is going to stop Omicron)

(The song continues)

Julie: (worrying about Bruce) What’s wrong?

Bruce: (Having a fixed-angry demeanor)

Julie: Can you tell me what’s wrong?

Bruce: (Looking at her) Can you leave me alone, please.

Julie: I’m not going anywhere until you tell me what the matter is.

Bruce: I really don’t want to talk about it.

(The song continues)

Julie: Bruce…

Bruce: (Getting of his bed while yelling) No! I don’t want to talk about it!!

Julie: Let me in!

Bruce: (Getting pissed but sees her eyes)

Julie: Please.

Bruce: (Looking at her and he breaks down) What is wrong with me! (He holds his head as he feels something is hurting him)

Alfred: He’s upstairs, but he’s with Julie.

Leo: (Not surprised) Okay.

Alfred: I can leave Master Bruce a message.

Bruce: It just that I might have a job.

Alfred: Oh?! I wonder where?

Leo: I have a meeting with this editor at Gotham Times and if I make this right, I could be spending months as a intern.

Alfred: That is great, Master Leo. Simply great!

Leo: Listen, let Bruce know I was here.

Alfred: Will do.

Leo: (About to go until he thinks about something) Did Bruce ever told you about the letter he received a month ago?

Alfred: (Surprised) Guess, we all have been keeping something.

Leo: What you mean?

Alfred: The conspiracy…

Leo: About Wayne Industries…it's real is it?

Alfred: Unfortunately, yes.

Leo: I think I may have a clue. (He soon pulls out the card that he kept a month and shows Alfred the small letter “o”)

Alfred: What is that?

Leo: It’s the Greek alphabet of Omicron.

Alfred: (Totally stunned about that) Omicron?!

Leo: Okay, now you’re freaking me out.

Alfred: Bruce tells me this whole conspiracy that has crippling the company from within was caused by this secret organization called Omicron.

Leo: Oh my god. What now?

Alfred: Well, I don’t know. I called Lucius to see if he knew anything about Omicron and the conspiracy.

Leo: And?

Alfred: He’ll call me back.

Leo: How Bruce is taking it?

Alfred: Heartbroken that the people bent on taking care of the company and protecting the Wayne’s name is being corrupted.

Leo: I’m going to call Det. Alder.

Alfred: No, I’ll call Megan. You just focus on your future.

Leo: But Bruce…

Bruce: I really can’t tell you.

Julie: Why?

Bruce: Because if I do you could be hurt.

Julie: (Sitting up) So you don’t want me to get involved.

Bruce: No. (Sitting up as well and holding her hands) I don’t want you to get hurt. This is something I need and half to do.

Julie: Okay; well whatever it is, I know you will do the right thing.

Bruce: (Hearing that but he senses that he may not do the right thing in order to stop Omicron)

Julie: I think I should go.

Bruce: (Standing up) Me finishing off Omicron before it’s too late.

Black Mask: And why’s that?

Bruce: You used my family company and try to taint its image for your stupid syndicate’s agenda for what…ultimate control!?

Black Mask: More than that, Mr. Wayne. I want the world to know that Gotham is the epicenter of justice.

Bruce: Injustice. Anyone who can agree with your insidious points must be corrupted without reason.

Black Mask: Wayne Industries is just a mere launching pad.

Bruce: (Getting angry)

Black Mask: I could understand your anger.

Bruce: I’m not going to let this city go down while the criminal underworld tries to rise for power.

Black Mask: (Intrigue and wondering curiously) You and what army?!

Bruce: Oh that’s what you believe.

Huntress: Do not mock him!

Voice: Or what!

(Both Bruce and the Huntress turn to see it was Agent Cutter)

Cutter: I know everything about you…Helen.

Huntress: Do not say that name to me!

Cutter: Helen. Helen Bertinelli.

Huntress: Stop saying it!

Black Mask: No!!

Bruce: (He soon pulls out the gun)

Gideon: (Surprised to see that) Bruce! Why do you have that?

(Shifts to a determined Bruce holding the gun)
