I think that he'd be proud.

GWEN

Particularly of Elyan.

ELYAN

Me?

GWEN

Not because you're a knight, but because of the man you've become

ELYAN

I don't think so.

PERCIVAL

She's right.

GWAINE

Absolutely. You're right standing, especially when it comes to sweet-talk the ladies if nothing else.

ELYAN

Don't listen to him.

LEON

No. Elyan loves only one woman.

GWEN

Who?

ELYAN

You!

GWEN

Tell me. I'm your sister.

GWAINE

Did Arthur not say?

GWEN

Arthur never tells me anything.

Himself.

GWEN

A game?

MORGANA

Just to find out how much Arthur loves you.

GWEN

It won't work.

MORGANA

You underestimate his feelings?

GWEN

[ARTHUR RIDES AWAY FROM THE GROUP]

MERLIN

Arthur. . .

[MERLIN TURNS TO THE REST OF THE GROUP]

I'll talk to him.

[NEW SCENE: ARTHUR LOOKING OUT INTO THE FOREST AND MERLIN RIDES UP TO HIM]

ARTHUR

You saved Percival, you saved Leon. . .

ELYAN

But not my own sister.

ARTHUR

We can not blame ourselfs.

ELYAN

She raised me. . . you wouldn't understand.

LEON

Aaaahhhh!!!

[EVERYONE JOLTS AWAKE TO A HEAVY BREATHING LEON.  MERLIN APPROACHES HIM.]

MERLIN

It's alright.

LEON

The tower.  Everything in it's shadow. . .was dead.  The sound it was like. . . like children screaming.

PERCIVAL

The rain that fell was like blood.  I had the same dream.  I was lost in a forest, the trees had claws, and when I finally escaped it there was a plain. . .

LEON

Emty as far as the eye can see, exept. . .

PERCIVAL

Byonde the skyline there was a black pillar of stone.

LEON

The tower was so dark, it could swallow the sun.

ARTHUR

The dark tower.  Its a place where every young knight is tought to dread and highly so.  Its where many have met their end.

MERLIN

I have never heard of it.

ARTHUR

With good reason.  Its said that the mear mention of it can bring doom to those that hear it.

GWAINE

Well, lets not mention it again.  I was having a dream of eating a cheese that tasted of apple pie.  Anyone else had that dream?  Well your all missing out.

[MERLIN AND ARTHUR LEAVE THE GROUP FOR A PRIVATE CONVERSATION]

ARTHUR

Why would they both have that dream?

MERLIN

The poison. . . must still be coursing through their veins.

ARTHUR

But the same dream?

MERLIN

Arthur, Morgana conjured those snakes, Leon and Percival would be dead if thats what she wanted.

ARTHUR

So what are you saying?

MERLIN

She planted those visions in their minds.  It's a trap, she is luring you to your doom.

ARTHUR

And the tower?  Thats where she's taken Guinevere.

[NEW SCENE: GWEN IS LAYING ON THE FLOOR WITH MANDRAKE ROOT LIQUID FALLING ALL OVER HER FACE, THEN SHE GETS UP AND SEES MANDRAKE ROOTS ALL AROUND HER.  A BUNCH OF SHRIEKS AND SCREAMS FILL HER EARS]

[NEW SCENE: ARTHUR AND THE KNIGHTS ARE PREPARING FOR THEIR RIDE TO RESCUE GWEN]

ARTHUR

I've decided to journey to the dark tower.  It's my belief that Guinevere has been imprisoned there.  I don't know what horrors will be waiting so I'll travel alone.

ELYAN

No.

ARTHUR

I'm sorry, but I've made my decision.

ELYAN

You can't stop me Arthur, she is my sister.

PERCIVAL

Nor me ither.  She's our Queen.

LEON

And our friend.

GWAINE

She's a maiden in a tower.  A damsel in distress. I was born for this moment.

ARTHUR [LOOKING AT MERLIN]

You can turn back Merlin.

MERLIN

I made you a promise remember?

[NEW SCENE: THE KNIGHTS ARE RIDING TWARDS THE DARK TOWER THROUGH THE FOREST.  THEY COME UPON A CLIFF OVERLOOKING THE IMPENATRABLE FOREST AND THE DARK TOWER]

Through the impenartrable forest.

MERLIN

But it's. . .

GWAINE

Impenetrable.

MERLIN

We can't possably get through there?

ARTHUR

We must.

[NEW SCENE: THE KNIGHTS CUTTING AWAY AT THE BRANCHES IN THE IMPENETRABLE FOREST.  GWAINE RIPS HIS CLOAK ON THE THORNS LEAVING A PIECE BEHIND. EVERYONE STOPS AND STARES AT HIM]

GWAINE

Keep going.

[THE KNIGHTS CONTINUE ON THROUGH THE FOREST]

[NEW SCENE: GWEN LOOKING FRIGHTENED AND RUNNING AROUND THE DARK ROOM.]

GWEN (frightlingly)

Huuuh!

[SHE BUMPS INTO AN ILLUSION (THAT SEEMS REAL) TO HER OF ELYAN]

Don't stop.

PERCIVAL

We have lost the path.

ARTHUR

We'll keep heading north.

GWAINE

How do we know which way is north?

ARTHUR

The ivey. Pale leaves face south, dull leaves face north.

[GWEN CRAWLS ON THE FLOOR WHILE LOOKING AROUND.  THE DOOR OPENS AND MORGANA WALKS IN]

MORGANA

Come. . .let us have somthing to eat.

[MORGANA LEADS GWEN OUT OF THE ROOM AND SHE FOLLOWS]

[NEW SCENE: ARTHUR LEADING THE KNIGHTS THROUGH THE FOREST.]

LEON

We should have made it out of the forest by now.

ARTHUR

Look.

[ARTHUR WALKS OVER TO A PIECE OF RED CLOTH]

GWAINE

What is it?

[ARTHUR SHOWES HIM THE CLOTH AND GWAINE LIFTS HIS CLOAK REVEALING A HOLE WHERE THE PIECE OF CLOTH USED TO GO IN HIS CLOAK]

ELYAN

How can that be?

ARTHUR

We have gone around in a circle.

[ARTHUR ANGRELY PICKS UP HIS SWORD AND THROWS IT IN TO THE GROUND]

ARTHUR (Angrely)

We have wasted an entire day!

[ARTHUR SINKS TO THE GROUND LOOKING DEFEATED AND UPSET. ELYAN JOINS HIM.]

LEON

Lets make camp for the night.  Get some rest and pick up fresh in the morning.

[MERLIN WALKS OVER TO AN UPSET ARTHUR]

MERLIN

I made you a promise.  Remember?  We will bring her home.

[NEW SCENE: MORGANA FEEDING GWEN SOME FOOD AT THE TABLE.]

MORGANA

Eat.  Here.  Food always makes me feel better.  Would you prefer some chicken?. . .You must eat.  You are fading away.

GWEN

I do not know what cool trick you are playing but I will not be broken by you.

MORGANA

I thought this would be nice.  I know how lonely you must be.  All by yourself in that room.  Atleast your not shackled, there's daylight, you can move, you can see.

GWEN

You expect me to be grateful?

MORGANA

I too have suffered Gwen.  I spent two years living in darkness.  I spent two years chained to a wall in the bottom of a pit. . . You did not know?

[GWEN SHAKES HER HEAD NO]

MORGANA

I would have sold my sole for someone to show me kindness such as this.  Do you want me to take you back up there?

NEW SCENE: THE KNIGHTS SLEEPING IN THE FOREST.  MERLIN WAKES UP AND SEES SOMTHING AND FOLLOWS IT THROUGH THE FOREST.  HE THEN CATCHES UP TO IT AND SEES QUEEN MAB]

QUEEN MAB

Welcome to my realm Emris.

MERLIN

Who are you?

QUEEN MAB

Why, I'm Queen Mab.  I am the spirit of this place.  And all the places that bring dispear to mens hearts.  Few have ever seen me Emris, you should count yourself fortunate.

MERLIN

You. . .everything in this forest, it's wildering.

QUEEN MAB

The forest is one step of the journey.

MERLIN

How do we find a way out?

QUEEN MAB

Oh little one. . .you shuld not have to ask.  left is right and right is left.  And the way behind is the way ahead.  It is simple.

MERLIN

Oh. . .simple

QUEEN MAB

You have a minds eye Emris.  You must learn to trust in it.  But far greater challanges lie ahead.

MERLIN

When we reach the dark tower?

QUEEN MAB

If. . .

MERLIN

What do you mean?

QUEEN MAB

You must beware Emris, the tower is not a real place.  It is the heart's rest.  The mind's deepest fear.  The stillness in a humming bird's eye. . .

MERLIN

Stop, talking in riddles.

QUEEN MAB

Then I shall speak in rhyme.  Heed my words which you concern, for one of you will not return.

MERLIN

What do you mean?

QUEEN MAB

hahahahahahaha

[QUEEN MAB DISAPPEARS WHILE MERLIN IS LOOKING AROUND AND SAYING]

MERLIN

Which one?

[NEW SCENE: THE KNIGHTS ON THE MOVE THROUGH THE FOREST.  ARTHUR STOPS AND LOOKS AROUND]

ARTHUR

We need to find the clearing where we saw the Dollares Plains.

ELYAN

Which way is that?

MERLIN

North.  Please. . .I know I can get us there.  I wouldn't do anything to risk Gwens life, I can get us to the dark tower.  I am certian.  I know what Gwen means too you, to all of us.  We need to head north.

ARTHUR

Which way is that Merlin?

MERLIN (pointing to a direction)

That way.

ARTHUR (pointing to the direction that Merlin pointed to)

No it's. . .over there.  How on earth did you know that?!

MERLIN

Sense of smell.  When the wind is from the north you can smell the sea.

ARTHUR

That's rediculous.

MERLIN

Trust me just this once?

ELYAN

Arthur. . .give him a chance.

LEON

What choice do we have?

[MERLIN STARTS TO LEAD THEM THROUGH THE FOREST.]

ARTHUR

Are you sure this is the right way Merlin?

[MERLIN USES HIS MAGIC (SECRETLY) TO FIND THEIR WAY.  HE LEADS ON PAST PERCIVALS BROKEN BALDE. PERCIVAL SEES IT AND PICKS IT UP]

PERCIVAL

Merlin.  Your a genius.

[MERLIN LEADS THE KNIGHTS TO THE CLREAING WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE DARK TOWER.  ARTHUR PATS MERLIN ON THE BACK.]

ARTHUR

Which way now?

[MERLIN LEADS ON AND USES HIS MAGIC AGAIN TO FIND THEIR WAY.  THE KNIGHTS START PICKING UP THE PACE, RUNNING AFTER A CONFIDENT MERLIN.  HE SUCESSFULLY LEADS THEM OUT OF THE IMPENETRABLE FOREST.  WHEN THEY EMERGE THEY ARE LOOKING AT THE EMTY PLAINS LEADING TO THE DARK TOWER]

ELYAN

How far do you think it is?

GWAINE

Atleast we can see where we are going.

ARTHUR

Then let's not stand here looking at it.

[ARTHUR TAKES THE LEAD AND STARTS HEADING TWARD THE DARK TOWER WITH THE KNIGHTS IN PERSUT.]

[NEW SCENE: GWEN LAYING DOWN IN THE ROOM AND SLOWLY STANDS UP.  EVIL GAIUS IS LOOKINGAT HER BUT DOES NOT SAY ANYTHIG. SHE SENSES HIM AND TURNS AROUND BUT HE IS GONE.  THEN, MORGANA UNLOCKS THE DOOR AND COMES IN.]

MORGANA

I thought you might like to dine with me?

[MORGANA STARTS TO WALK TWARDS GWEN WHILE SHE IS BACKING AWAY FURTHUR INTO THE ROOM.]

MORGANA

Come.  You must eat or you will fade away.

[MORGANA REACHES OUT TO GWEN AND GWEN PUTS HER HAND IN MORGANAS BUT PULLS FROM HER GRASP RIGHT AWAY]

MORGANA

Your hands are cold.  Let me get a warm fire going for you.  Anything you want you can have.  I'll give it to you.

GWEN

Why are you doing this?

MORGANA

Because we are friends.  We always were-

GWEN

Leave me alone.

MORGANA

Gwen. . .

GWEN

What are you going to do to me?

MORGANA

I'm helping you.  I am looking after you-

GWEN

I want nothing from you.

MORGANA

Well if you change your mind, let me know.

[MORGANA LEAVES THE ROOM. ANOTHER SCREAM ECHOS THROUGHOUT THE ROOM]

[NEW SCENE: ARTHUR LEADING THE KNIGHTS AND MERLIN THROUGH THE PLAINS.  GETTING CLOSER TO THE TOWER.  PERCIVAL STOPS AND TAKES HIS BOOT OFF REVEALING A BLISTER.  ARTHUR STOPS AND TURNS TO PERCIVAL]

ARTHUR

We can not afford to rest.

PERCIVAL

I'm alright.

[THEY CONTINUE ON THEIR JOURNEY]

[NEW SCENE: GWEN IS ON THE FLOOR CRYING AND CLUCHING HER EARS TRYING TO BLOCK THE SCREAMS OUT]

GWEN (crying and wimpering)

Don't look you'll be alright. . . don't look you'll be alright. . .d-don't lo-ok. . .don't look you'll be alright.  Huh, hu.  Huh, hu.

[NEW SCENE:  THE KNIGHTS AND MERLINWALKING THROUGH THE PLAINS (STILL).  MERLIN SLIPS AND FALLS DOWN A DITCH.]

PERCIVAL

Merlin!

[MERLIN SLIDES DOWN THE DITCH.  AND ALMSOT FALLS ONTOP OF A SWORD POINTING AT HIM NEXT TO A BUNCH OF KNIGHT CORPSES.  MERLIN CRAWLS BACK OUT OF THE DITCH.  PERCIVAL GIVES HIM A HAND UP.]

[THE KNIGHTS CONTINUE ON]

[NEW SCENE: GWEN CROUCHED ON THE FLOOR CRYING AND WIMPERING, SCREAMS ECHOING THROUGH HER HEAD.]

GWEN

Huh?! Arthur?. . .No.  I know it's not you.  I know its not you.  I know its not you.  I know its not you.

[EVIL ARTHUR SLOWLY WALKS TWARDS GWEN]

EVIL ARTHUR

Guinevere.  Look at me.

GWEN

I know its not you.

EVIL ARTHUR

Please. . .

GWEN

I know its not you.

EVIL ARTHUR

GWEN

I know its not you.

EVIL ARTHUR

MORGANA

It's all right.  Its all right.  I'm here.

[MORGANA REACHES OUT AND GWEN GOES INTO HER EMBRACE.]

MORGANA

I'm here.  My darling I was wrong to make you suffer.  The mandrake root is cruel.  Peirces the depts of your very soul. Pushes you into the very mear conciousness of what you fear and dread.  Gwen, you have been so courageous but it was necessary.  Gwen, your not alone now.  You need never bee alone again.  I am the only one you can trust.  I am the only one you have left in the world.   The others torment you, hate you. . . Come.

[GWEN GRABS MORGANAS HAND AND STARTS TO LEAVE WITH HER.]

MORGANA

You need some rest, some proper rest.

[THEN SHE REALIZES WHAT SHE IS DOING AND PULLS AWAY FROM MORGANA]

GWEN

No.  Whatever twisted game you are playing, I want no part in it.  I would rather stay here and die.

[NEW SCENE: ARTHUR AND THE KNIGHTS HAVE REACHED THE ENTRANCE TO THE DARK TOWER.  ARTHUR PULLS OUT HIS SWORD AND LEADS THE WAY INTO THE TOWER.  THEY START CLIMING SOME STAIRS]

[THEY CONTINUE ON AND ELYAN SLIPS PAST ARTHUR.]

ELYAN

Arthur!

[ARTHUR FOLLOWS AND GOES INTO A NEW ROOM]

ELYAN

Stop!

PERCIVAL

Aaawww.

[AN ARROW FLYS INTO PERCIVALS LEG AND A BUNCH OF OTHER ARROWS FLY AROUND THE ROOM]

ARTHUR

Nobody move.  stay egzactly where you are.

LEON

What triggered it?

ARTHUR

The flag stones, they must react to pressure.

ELYAN

Here.  I will use this.

[ELYAN USES HIS SWORD TO REACT THE FLIGHTSTONE AND GOES FURTHUR ACROWW THE ROOM.]

MERLIN

I will go first.

[EVERYONE FOLLOWS ELYAN AND MERLIN THROUGH THE TRAP ROOM.]

ELYAN

I'll push on.

[ELYAN GETS CLOSER TO THE DOOR.]

ARTHUR

No, Elyan.

ELYAN

None of us would not be here if it wern't for me.  I have to do this.

[ELYAN REACHES THE DOOR AND GOES THROUGH ONTO THE NEXT STAIRCASE.]

ARTHUR

Elyan!

[ELYAN CLIMBS SOME MORE STAIRS AND INTO THE ROOM WHERE GWEN IS TRAPPED WITH A SWORD GUARDING HER.]

ELYAN

Gwen!

GWEN

Elyan!

ELYAN

What has she done to you?

[ELYAN ATTEMPTS TO GET PAST THE SWORD TO REACH GWEN.]

GWEN

No, don't.  It will not let you pass.  Morgana enchanted it to protect me.  You can't free me Elyan.  Leave me here please.

ELYAN

N-no.

GWEN

You can not overcome it.  It will fight to the death.

[ELYAN STARTS TO FIGHT THE SWORD.  HE FIGHTS FOR A WHILE THEN THE SWORD STABS ELYAN.]

GWEN

Huh!  Elyan go save yourself.

[ELYAN CONTINUES FIGHTING THE SWORD AND OUT WITS IT BY MAKING IT GO OUT A WINDOW, AND SHUTTING IT, THEN THE SWORD GOES INT THE SHUTTER AND IS STILL.  ELYAN COLLAPSES AND GWEN RUSHES OVER TO HIM.]

GWEN

I-I'm here.  I'm here.

ELYAN

For a moment, I didn't think I was going to win.

GWEN

Father would be proud of you.

ELYAN

And of you.  So proud.

[ELYAN SLOWLY DIES IN GWENS ARMS.  ARTHUR AND THE REST OF THE KNIGHTS RUSH IN, LOOKING AROUND.  ARTHUR SEES GWEN GRIEVING OVER ELYAN AND GOES TO HER SIDE AND SITS WITH HER LOOKING AT ELYAN.]

[NEW SCENE: A KNIGHT FLINGS A FLAMING ARROW AT ELYANS BOAT BURIAL.  ARTHUR GOES TO STAND BY GWEN WRAPPING AN ARM AROUND HER.]

MERLIN (to Gaius)

I was warned that one of us would not return.

GAIUS

Its not your fault Merlin.

MERLIN

Elyan is dead.

GAIUS

The sword that Elyan fell brave to was surely intended for Arthur.  Now he is safe.  And so is Gwen.

[NEW SCENE: ARTHUR AND GWEN ARE IN THEIR CHAMBERS.  ARTHUR IS ASLEEP WITH HIS ARM AROUND GWEN, BUT GWEN STIRS AWAKE, AND LEAVE THE ROOM WALKING OUT OF THE CASTLE.]

[NEW SCENE: GWEN GOES INTO THE FOREST AND HUGS MORGANA.]

MORGANA

How is he?

GWEN

Arthur thinks he has won.  He has no idea.

MORGANA

Do you understand now who you can trust?

GWEN

Its you Morgana.  Its only ever been you.

MORGANA

You are not one of them.  And you never will be

GWEN

You don't know how much I hate them.  All of them.

MORGANA

You have done well to see past the lies to the real truth.  You have an important part to play in the future.  Togther we will ensure the destruction of everything that Arthur holds dear.
