1INT. MESALIKO CAVE - NIGHT
Michael is sitting in the cave in the area where he was healed. The torches are lit. He is trying to meditate, as River Dog taught him, but his attention keeps being drawn to the cave painting.
Knowledge is a funny thing. Sometimes the more you learn, the more you want to know.
Michael gives up on his meditation and walks over to the cave painting, examining the symbols with care and a feeling of intensity.
2 INT. MAX’S POD CHAMBER - CONTINUOUS
Max is in his own pod chamber. A camping lantern provides a modicum of light. He's slowly circling the chamber touching the pod, and the walls, as if willing them to speak to him.
Sometimes the more you learn, the more you realize you don't know.
3 EXT. FRAZIER WOODS - CONTINUOUS
Isabel is approaching the rock that she and Alex occupied when stargazing on the Father's Camping Trip. She is holding a camping lantern, which is providing light. She seems distraught as she places the lantern by her feet and sits on the rock. She looks up to the sky as if willing the stars to tell her what to do.
And sometimes the more you learn, the more you wish you hadn't.
4 INT. MAX’S POD CHAMBER - CONTINUOUS
Liz has joined Max and they are sitting by his pod. We join them in mid-conversation.
(picking at the skin of the pod)
We're not part of the '47 crash, like we always thought, ...
Liz gently removes his hand from the pod before he can do more damage then holds both his hands in hers.
... but our people were.
Where are your people from?
5 INT. MESALIKO CAVE - CONTINUOUS
Maria has joined Michael. They are sitting by the torches.
Antar. That's the name of the planet my people are from ... but not me.
6 EXT. FRAZIER WOODS - CONTINUOUS
Alex has now joined Isabel and they are sitting on the rock together.
We were ... developed while in orbit around Earth.
Developed? You mean like
(gauging her reaction)
… in a ... lab?
7 INT. MAX’S POD CHAMBER - CONTINUOUS
Antar's sun is dying.
The red giant? The one I saw in my vision?
8 INT. MESALIKO CAVE - CONTINUOUS
They needed to find a new place to live. None of the other planets they had studied could support them, long term ... so they chose Earth.
They're going to invade!?
Cut to commercial.
