TYRANNY EPISODE FIVE
"WAKE UP CALLS"
INT. STEEL TUNNEL - NIGHT
Daniel is staggering down a long electrical conduit tunnel. He is dizzy. He hears shuffling of feet and voices but sees no one. He continues to stagger down the maze of tunnels when a shadowy figure appears in the distance, running after him. Daniel picks up his pace and runs as best he can down one the corridors. He finds an electrical room and hides inside, peering through a crack in the door. It appears as if he's lost the man that was after him. Daniel begins to feel the temperature is incredibly cold but the floor is warm so he lays flat on the ground to keep his body temperature up. He notices a pencil on the ground. He grabs it and finds a scrap piece of paper and tries to write on it with much difficulty. As he tries to concentrate, the shadowy figure appears at the door and breaks it open. Daniel crumples up the paper and hides it in his hand...
INT. SUBWAY TERMINAL - SAME
...Daniel wakes up on the subway - the tunnel chase was just a dream. He’s wearing his bike helmet and his bike is parked next to him. He’s feeling a little out of it. As he focuses his eyes, he sees a woman staring at him from across the car. She stares at him as if he’s done something wrong. Daniel looks around uncomfortably. The subway stops and Daniel exits feeling very lightheaded, as if he's gonna black out. As he exits the car, he looks back to the woman. For some reason he cant see her face, he looks more intently and her face is strangely a blur as the subway car pulls forward down the tunnel.
EXT. DANIEL’S STUDIO - SAME
Daniel arrives to the door of his loft in San Francisco. A stack of newspapers are scattered in front of his door.
