(Gavin is sitting in his room, wearing a purple crown and holding the bottle of sherry from War is Over. Julia's Ratatouille plushie is under his arm, and tears a visible on his cheeks. He gets out his phone and calls Tariq.)
Gavin: (Sniffs.) Hi. (Sniffs.) Did you see that? Yeah, I know. Me, too. I can't believe it. And tha- That little kid just came out all excited in the morning, and the snowman had just melted, and- nothing left except his hat. (Sniffs.) His best friend was just gone. (Snaps his fingers.) Just like that. (Sniffs.) Tariq, listen, mate. I'm... I'm really sorry about everything, okay? Do- Do you want to meet up for a drink? (Breathes heavily and nods.) Okay, I'll see you in an hour. Okay.
(Gavin puts the phone away, sighs heavily, and takes off the crown. Cut to Tariq trying to open the local pub's door.)
Gavin: I cannot believe the pub's shut.
Tariq: I know. It's freezing as well.
Gavin: Yeah, well.. Hey- Hey! This'll keep us warm. (Holds up the bottle of sherry.) Sherry in the jar-o, sherry in the jar-o. (Laughs.) Come on, let's go for a walk.
(Cut to Gavin and Tariq walking in a park.)
Gavin: I can't believe Kate ruined Christmas. (Drinks from the bottle.)
Tariq: I can.
Tariq: She said she wanted to work against the Order. (Drinks from the bottle.)
Gavin: Yeah right. Everyone who tries to work against the Order seems to die untimely deaths. (Drinks from the bottle.) You see- see, that's what Terrence doesn't get. He thinks that he can take them on, like they're just a gang of thieves. He thinks he's got one over on 'em by locking up Biffo, the Watcher.
Tariq: Locked him up? What do you mean? Where did he lock him up?
Gavin: He's in there. (Pans the camera to show the van from The Ice Man.)
Tariq: Terrence locked the Watcher in the back of a truck over Christmas?
Gavin: (Nods.) Yeah, and it's refrigerated. (Laughs.) His face probably looks like the back-end of a frozen turkey by now. (Drinks from the bottle.)
Tariq: I can't believe this, Gavin. You set me up. You knew I'd have to come and help you get him out of there.
Gavin: Look... Either way, I'm screwed, alright? It's- My chances are slightly better if I piss off Terrence, and not the Order. Okay? Come on, let's have a look inside. Here, take this. (Hands the camera to Tariq.)
(Gavin walks over to the van, followed by Tariq.)
Tariq: Is he dead?
Gavin: Hello? (Listens for a response.) Mate? (Knocks on the van.) Are you okay? (Opens the van's back door.)
Tariq: (Pulls on Gavin's sleeve.) Go inside and look.
Gavin: I'm not going in; you go in!
Tariq: No way!
Gavin: No, here. Take this. (Takes a flashlight out of his pocket.)
Tariq: No way! You go in!
Gavin: (Turns on the flashlight and carefully opens the door.) Shit. (Takes another drink from the bottle.)
Tariq: Take this. (Hands Gavin the camera.)
(Cut to Gavin's feet entering the van. Cut to Gavin exiting the van.)
Tariq: Is he- Is he dead?
Gavin: No. He's gone.
Tariq: What do you mean, "he's gone"?
Gavin: He's gone, Tariq. As in "not there". He's escaped to go and tell his- his mistress i-in grunt language who it was that locked him in there and who it was that didn't let him out!
Tariq: I can't believe the mess you've got yourself into.
Gavin: It's not just me. It's you they're after, as well, you know. You're implicated, Tariq.
Tariq: (Attacks Gavin.) I stopped caring about the Orwell software! I stopped caring about Terrence and Kate and the Watcher! I'm finished with you! I was at home with my mum! Nice and warm, with nothing more to worry about than whether to have custard or cream with my Christmas pudding! But no, you just come back in and drag me in again! I hate you and your stupid camera. I hate everything you stand for. You're a selfish, nasty piece of shit. And you deserve everything that's coming your way, Gavin! Everything!
- The movie that Gavin and Tariq were watching is likely the famous British film The Snowman.
