TYRANNY EPISODE ONE
"THE BEGINNING OF THE END"
INT. 3AM - SENSORY DEPRIVATION TANK
Daniel lays motionless underwater. His body is limp and barely visible in the dark green glow of the sensory deprivation tank. Goggles cover his eyes and long tubes and wires connect to his head. Tiny dispersed air bubbles are released from the oxygen tube running to his mouth.
A flash - a vision... solar flares emit from a giant blue sun.
The face of Isabelle looking straight ahead. She stands in a subway terminal and smiles as her eyes are locked on his. Her smile then fades, her eyes and head turn away as two doors slam shut in front of her.
Daniel’s body twitches as he floats in the water. Isabelles voice echoes in his head.
Nothing is random...
INT. 5AM - UNDERGROUND HEADQUARTERS - DANIEL’S BEDROOM
Hundreds of books line the shelves. Small souvenirs collected from his travels are scattered throughout the room. Daniel takes a sip of his morning tea and opens his journal in an attempt to write his thoughts. He writes the date November 22, 2011 but nothing more. He turns to his shelf - seeing an old metal box with a lock. He walks over to it, opens it and pulls out an old book.
He opens the cover to the first page and begins to flip though the books pages. The voice of his wife Isabelle, echos in his mind.
I found this for you in a rare book store. Happy birthday Daniel.
He stops at a page which is titled “The Four Beasts.”
Daniel shuts the book. The cover reads “Daniel and the Revelation.”
EXT. CHARLES BRIDGE - 6AM
Daniel takes his usual early morning walk in the cold. The sky is beginning to show a slight blue color of morning. He stops at the statue of the saint which points at the castle above.
I miss her so much. I think that’s why...why it ended the way it did. I couldn’t...I had to let it end. What...I don’t really...I don’t know anything else.
A mysterious voice interrupts Daniel's inner monologue and he finds he is being interrogated by a mysterious doctor...
