Helen: Now! (Pointing the gun at him) I swear to god I will shoot this gun I not playing!
Jason: Alright, alright! The truth is I don’t know.
Helen: What! (Trying to put it down but put it towards him again)
Jason: I’m serious! I don’t know where my father is; I don’t know anything about EuroTron; I don’t know about Starlix, and I don’t even know what is Starlix.
Helen: I understand.
Jason: (Realizing) Well give the gun to me…
Helen: You want it, now have it…
Jason: (Confused) What you mean for me to have what?
Helen: I always love you….
Jason: (Stunned after that statement)
(All of the sudden she turns the gun on herself and fires two shots and collapsing on the ground)
Jason: (Shocked) No!
(Jason forcibly grabbing Helen in order to put some air in her system, but to no prevail the bullets she fired on herself hit the very thing she wanted Jason to have, her heart)
(The camera zooms out as we see Jason cradling the dead Helen Greene)

(Cuts inside as we see a determined Alfred trying to get out the room the best way he can and pulls out an old coat rack and tries to barge the door)
Alfred: (Attempting, he lunge, but he trips on his own foot as the coat rack bust door, but no budge however the rack is destroyed and Alfred has given up all hope)
(All of the sudden, in a strange miracle the door mysteriously creeks open; Alfred sees it and with no haste, sprints to his view of freedom)
- Int. Kitchen
(Cuts to the kitchen as Alfred successfully come out of the basement still in pact)
Alfred: What a day, now I need a nap. (Heading upstairs to go to sleep)
(Unbeknownst to Alfred the iron board was pinned with the mop, and strange way it’s back to its original position, and we suddenly hear the song Chris Cornell – “Scream” playing in the background)
- Int. Leo’s Car

- Ext. Powers Mansion
(Cuts to the view of the mansion)
- Int. Library
(Cuts inside the library as we see Jason created a fire in the fireplace and as the song continues to play, we see him grabbing a portrait from the past; the portrait is young Jason and young Helen; he sees it then looks at the fire and all of the sudden he throws the picture and the frame in the fire)
(As the song continues, we see Jason noticing now how deceptive and cruel his father can really be especially to his almost first love, and all of the suddenly he pulls out his cell and calls Bradson)
Jason: (Determined while talking to Bradson on the phone) Bradson, listen to me, I don’t care how, why, when, and where…we’re going to find my father no matter what. (He hangs up and all he can do now is to look into the flames of the fireplace)
- Int. Rave - Bar
(As the song continues, we cut to Rave as we see the band have left and the concert is totally over all who is there is Julie and Bruce)
Bruce: (Seeing Julie) What a day.
Julie: I know. (Smiling) This is what I mean almost all of us have hope; all that the guys gave me was a signed cd of their new album.
Bruce: You did say that.
Julie: I wonder if Kat is still going to be her witchy self, now without her ability and hearing.
Bruce: Even though she’s deaf, she can still spread a rumor about herself.
Bruce: (Laughing as well)
Julie: (Remembering the kiss) We pulled on hell of a knockout team back there.
Bruce: We sure did. And speaking of that…
Julie: What?! What is it?
Bruce: Remember you said that the Plain White T’s came here because they just wanted coffee and that you offered them to perform here at Rave.
Bruce: I was the one who paid them to come to Gotham and to perform, because I kind of brought them new equipment. I’m sorry.
Julie: (Depressed, angry, and heartbroken at the same time) I can’t believe you did this to me; you made me believe I did this on my own and you gave them money.
Bruce: (Trying to clear up things) Julie…
Julie: (Starting to cry) No! I thought that was just a favor from a good fan, but it was about money. (Bruce trying to explain) It’s too late, I guess money solves everything. (Angry at him, she heads to the back)
Bruce: (Realizes that he did that just to see if their relationship have any potential and after the sudden surprise kiss, he still thought it could happen guess not)
(The camera shifts to a cellphone with the pic of Bruce and Julie kissing, and we zoom up as we see its Julie holding her phone and crying now knowing her chance to hook up with him is about to crumble because he lied to her about booking the Plain White T’s)
(The song “Scream” ends as the camera cuts off to see Bruce’s sadden face)
