Act 10 scene 1: the interrogation room

Clause: (lean back in chair & sigh)

Investigator: (stand across the room and stare at Clause intensely) you had a motive to kill Stephan, didn’t you Mr. Andrews?

Police officer: you were angry at him for spilling your dirty little secret to your boss

Clause: (stare down at hand cuffed wrists)

Police officer: and the girl is your accomplice in all of this

Clause: she has a name you know… it’s Zoe Mason

Investigator: (sit across from Clause & squint in the bright light of the lamp)

Police officer: (fold arms across chest)

Clause: she’s my sister’s mother-in-law

Investigator: your sister… then her motive would be to protect you in honor of the code of siblings (run fingers through hair)

Clause: (shut eyes)

Investigator: either way you both are primary suspects

Clause: I am not the murderer of Stephan (shake head)

Police officer: (stand up & walk to the door)

[the door buzzes]

Police officer: (open the door)

Stranger: (walk in and stare at Clause) hello Clause Andrews, my name is Allen smith (narrow eyes)

[Police officer leaves & closes door behind him]

Allen: I am a homicide investigator; Stephan was killed by a dart found in your house

Clause: you are falsely accusing me of killing my nephew… my own sister’s son… haven’t I been through enough already (shake head & snort)

Allen: (run fingers through hair)

Clause: I lost my job and my nephew and somehow people have the bright idea to pin it on me

Investigator: your job and nephew aren’t the only things you lost, are they Clause?

Allen: (lean on wall and press lips together)

Investigator: your student Irene left you to be with a boy her own age

Clause: Irene Paterson is nothing more than a student to me, I don’t know why everyone is assuming otherwise (casual shrug)

Investigator: (walk around room & stare at Clause suspiciously)

Clause: I am just her math tutor and creative writing teacher

Allen: you’ve gone mad… you’ve gone bonkers, you know

Clause: (take a deep breath)

Allen: I have a photograph of you snogging her, snogging your very own student

Act 10 scene 2: Clause’s jail cell

Clause: (Lie on top bunk of jail cell bed, stare up at the ceiling & sigh)

Cellmate: (Lie on bottom bunk of jail cell bed, and write a letter to sister)

Jail warden: (walk over to Clause’s cell & unlock the door) Clause Andrews, you have been bailed out

Cellmate: who the hell bailed out this ignorant fool but left me here to rot? (growl and stare at the letter)

Clause: (get up & climb out of the bunk bed)

Cellmate: Karma is a real bitch aint she?

Jail warden: watch the language Curt; I’m not joking around with you (scowl at Clause’s cellmate Curt)

Clause: (grab normal clothes from warden)

Cellmate: (roll eyes)

Jail warden: and as for you Clause, the person who bailed you out asked to be kept anonymous

Clause: (follow jail warden to the front of the jail, change out of orange jumpsuit in the bathroom, hand jail warden the jumpsuit and walk outside)

[Irene stands outside waiting for Clause]

Clause: what are you doing here Irene, isn’t Nolan waiting for you? (pull eye brows together)

Irene: (bow head)

Clause:  I mean I’m happy to see you but I did you bail me out of jail?

Blair: (walk up to Clause) Irene didn’t bail you out… I did, I compelled every police offer that you’re out on bail

Clause: (stare at Irene)

Blair: you are running out of time too Irene, they are coming for you… they are coming for her Clause

Irene: I know I should’ve run already and that I’m risking my life by staying but Clause… I love you!

Blair: (pat Clause on the shoulder & growl under breath)

Irene: I realized that I was afraid of admitting it because there’s so much to lose

Blair: as time passes through an hourglass and affection grows stronger, the girl comes to a crossroad

Clause: (close eyes)

Blair: she holds two lives in her hand and in the end she can only save one

Irene: (run up to Clause, kiss him passionately and wrap arms around his neck)

Clause: (wrap arms around Irene’s waist)

[They make out]

Blair: (leave)

Act 10 scene 3: hotel room

Clause: (lay on bed & grade papers)

Irene: (do homework and bite lip)

Clause: you didn’t have to come hide out with me

Irene: I am a target of human hunters and I know I’ll be safe with you (glance at Clause)

Clause: (nod)

Irene: you will protect me because of the love we share, I know you will

Clause: you love us both don’t you? You had sex with him but you say you love me… Elena told me

Irene: (close eyes and sigh)

Clause: things will never be the same between us

Irene: I can prove that I love you Clause… though it’s sad that I should have to (open eyes and take off shirt)

Clause: (stare at Irene)

Irene: I can show you that nothing is more important (pull a knife out of backpack & hold it over right wrist)

Clause: (put papers aside and pull eye brows together) what are you doing?

Irene: (cut wrist, hold wrist out to Clause inches from his mouth & drop bloody knife)

Clause: (hold breath)

Irene: don’t hold back Clause, this is love… Blair told me you’d be thirsty (gulp)

Clause: (grip bed tightly)

Irene: I love you… I trust you not to kill me

Clause: (scoot closer to Irene and grab her arm gently)

Irene: (quietly gasps)

Clause: (expose sharp fangs, close eyes, bite Irene’s wrist & drink her blood)

~ 2 minutes later ~

Clause: (pull back and stare at Irene)

Irene: (take off Clause’s shirt)

[Clause and Irene lay down and make out]

Act 10 scene 4: hotel room

Clause: (sit up, pull eye brows together and glance around room suspiciously)

Irene: (yawn sleepily & climb out of bed) I slept like a baby last night, what about you?

Clause: it was hard to fall asleep after last night but if I did I would’ve dreamt of you (flash a smile)

Irene: (run fingers through hair)

Clause: you never left my mind or my heart… the stakes have just been raised

Irene: I love you Clause and I refuse to let anything happen to us (glance over shoulder at Clause)

Clause: (stare at Irene & tilt head to the right)

Irene: I promise not to let what we have die

Stranger: (kick door open) isn’t it a shame when you come second to the woman you love?

Irene: (stand behind Clause and tightly grip his shoulders)

Stranger: you love a human and she puts a werewolf above you

Clause: you must expect an easy defeat human hunter (stand up)

Stranger: (close the front door)

Irene: (fall to knees, crawl behind bed and hide)

Clause: you are stupid for coming here thinking you’d have an easy target

Stranger: well Clause, having you guard her won’t be a problem… I’ll kill you both (lunge forward)

Irene: (hold breath)

Stranger: your time has been cut short as well as hers

Clause: that’s where you’re wrong (pull out a dart gun & shoot stranger in the heart)

Stranger: (fall to the ground and die)

Irene: (stand up and stare at Clause)

Clause: we have to leave now

Irene: I need to say goodbye to my parents, brother Collin and Elena first (run to the door)

Clause: (open the door, step outside, & sigh)

Irene: take me home first so I can pack (step outside and close door)

Sarah: oh Clause, I’ve missed you so much… Blair poisoned all of us! (throaty cough)

Clause: (run up to Sarah and hug her tightly)

Sarah: Zoe and Vlad died, Vlad tried to find you when Blair released him but didn’t make it… I’m next in line to die!

Clause: you are the only family I have left Sarah; I killed your son so you can live… I killed Stephan

Sarah: (gasp in grief)

Clause: I’m so sorry, he was a human hunter and there was no other way

Sarah: you killed my only son so Blair would save my life? (cry)

Clause: (step back & stare at Sarah)

Sarah: you murderer! If only you had known Blair would poison us anyway my son would still be alive…

Clause: I couldn’t let you die thinking there is nothing I can do (shake head)

Irene: (cry)

Clause: I wouldn’t be able to live with myself… I love you Sarah and I have close to nothing, that’s why I did it

Sarah: you should go, save your human before you lose her too (stare at the ground & press lips together)

Clause: (cry and shake head)

Sarah: you are a disappointment for killing my one and only son…
