(Charlie, Patricia, and Dave are all exiting Patricia's car. Dave closes the trunk, while Patricia locks the car door. Charlie walks over to Dave, looking at her phone.)

Charlie: (Smiling.) This is the place.

(Charlie shows a map of their location on her phone to the camera.)

Patricia: Not the kind of place you'd expect a doctor to end up in. Come on. (Patricia and Charlie head over to the building.) Now, listen, Charlie - this guy Griffin has got a lot to answer for. I need you to identify him and verify what he has to say as much as you can.

Charlie: Look, I'll be able to identify him, alright, but I don't know if you can believe anything he says. I think he's crazy!

(They enter the building. Inside, the place is a shambles. Patricia enters through a small doorway.)

Patricia: Doctor Griffin? (The camera pans around to survey the empty room.) William Griffin?

(Patricia and Charlie look around confusedly.)

Charlie: Well, where is he?

Patricia: Dave- (Patricia looks at Dave, and points to the corner.) Dave, get that stuff.

(The camera pans down to see a sleeping bag, briefcase, and supplies on the floor. Charlie looks under the sleeping bag, while Patricia finds a stash of newspaper clippings.)

Patricia: (Reading headlines.) Scottish bank collapse. Huh. The Order. (Flips to the next clipping, while Charlie comes over to have a look. Patricia grabs another headline off of the floor, and Charlie walks away.) Pensions lose millions. The Order. What's this? (Finds a book.) Oh, wow, it's his diary. (Reading.) "What if I were able to convince her to do it? There's no other alternative; she must do it."

(Charlie grabs the diary and begins to read it. Dr. Griffin appears across the room.)

Dr. Griffin: Ah, there you are, Charlie. (Walks over to Charlie.) And you must be Patricia Nielson. (Holds out his hand for Patricia to shake.)

Patricia: Yes I am. (Dr. Griffin unzips his coat.) Charlie, do you recognize this man?

Charlie: Yep. I mean it's him. It's him.

Patricia: Are you Doctor William Griffin?

Dr. Griffin: Yes I am.

Patricia: The same Doctor William Griffin that was supposedly found dead in his Carnaby Street practice, what, about a few months ago?

Dr. Griffin: Now, listen. You must at least let me explain my actions over the last six months.

Patricia: Did you fake your death, Doctor Griffin?

Dr. Griffin: I had every reason to believe my own life was in danger.

Patricia: Didn't you, by doing so, put the lives of others at risk?

Dr. Griffin: The Order don't value the lives of anyone who stands in the way.

Patricia: Didn't you yourself endanger the lives of many people by your actions?

Dr. Griffin: I thought I was working for the greater good.

Patricia: Doctor Griffin, were you in fact responsible for the death of your own son, Dudley?

Charlie: No, it wasn't his fault. It wasn't like that!

Patricia: So what are you saying? Was it was your friend Kate's fault?

Charlie: No!

Patricia: Do you blame Kate, Charlie? Did she encourage Dudley Griffin to attempt to shoot the artist Michelle Clore in East London?

Charlie: She had nothing to do with it!

Patricia: Was it you, then, Charlie? Did you provoke Dudley into firing shots at you for-

Charlie: I didn't-

Dr. Griffin: ENOUGH! Now that is enough. Of course I am the guilty one. It was my son. I should have been a better father; should have kept him away from all of this.

Patricia: Do you really believe the Order exists?

Dr. Griffin: Of course they exist.

Patricia: You believe them to be an incredibly powerful organization, who - I quote - (Reads from the diary.) "keep the world moving in perpetual negative cycles." Is that true?

Dr. Griffin: Yes, that's correct.

Patricia: And yet you worked with them for several years, didn't you Doctor Griffin?

Dr. Griffin: Oh, yes. Yes I did.

Patricia: You took part in the abduction of young girls who trusted you as a doctor, didn't you?

Dr. Griffin: Look! I had no choice!

Patricia: You tested on trait positive girls for your own financial gain. Isn't that true, Doctor Griffin?

Dr. Griffin: Yes. I did.

Patricia: Did you try to make more girls trait positive with your phoney blood tests?

Dr. Griffin: I did. I tried to create a serum that would turn all girls trait positive.

Patricia: Why did these girls come to you, Doctor?

Dr. Griffin: They thought they were testing a new antibiotic for abnormalities of the womb. When they were unconscious I- I injected them with my own serum instead.

Charlie: (Shakes Dr. Griffin.) You evil, crazy old man!

(Dr. Griffin runs past Charlie and shuffles through his belongings. He presents a flash drive to Charlie.)

Dr. Griffin: Their names are on it. All of them. (Charlie knocks away his hand.) All of them; take it.

(Charlie grabs the flash drive and drops it on the ground.)

Charlie: No! I don't want this! I don't want this. (Dr. Griffin picks up the flash drive and presents it again.) No.

Dr. Griffin: Uh. There were side-effects.

Charlie: What do you mean, side-effects?

Dr. Griffin: Well, the serum can't be supported by their bodies over a long period of time. It starts mutating, then starts to kill off their immune system.

Patricia: And?

Dr. Griffin: And... And they're starting to die, one by one. So there isn't much time!

Patricia: How much is not much time, Doctor? How long have they got left, Doctor Griffin?

Dr. Griffin: A few months before they all die.

Patricia: And how many other are there?

Dr. Griffin: Six-

Charlie: You...

Dr. Griffin: Fifteen. Charlie...

Charlie: You're sick.

Dr. Griffin: Charlie! (Holds out the flash drive again.) Please, I'm too old to do this. Please take this.

Charlie: You're too- I don't want this!

Dr. Griffin: Please take this and help them.

Charlie: (Grabs the flash drive and throws it to the ground.) I don't want this! Why should I be the one to help them? Why me?

(Dr. Griffin picks up the flash drive again.)

Patricia: Charlie, we can really help some people here.

Charlie: "We"? He is the one that made them sick! This is not my problem. I will not do it. (Leaves.) I'm out of here. I'll find my own way out.

(The camera catches Charlie heading toward the door.)

Dr. Griffin: Charlie!

(Patricia grabs the flash drive out of Dr. Griffin's hand. She makes sure she has all of the documentation and heads toward the door.)

Patricia: Come on, Dave. See you, Doctor. (The camera follows Patricia toward the door.) Come on.
