Page 3 3/17-20 

Panel 1 1/9 page 

She's crying hard. Favor her, but show Fitz.  

Donna: They hurt me. 

Fitz: Donna, tell me what you remember. 

Panel 2 1/9 page 

Silent. Shoot from outside her window. She's looking out of it, with a blank look on her face. We can see reflections of outside scenery - a highway sign, a truck stop, whatever- on the glass, superimposing her face. 

Panel 3 1/9 page 

Close up on her face. Outside the window still; she's still looking out of it so her head is turned, same blank look. We can still see a reflection on the glass, different from last panel, and her breath on it.  

Donna: I'd been Christmas shopping... and I was waiting for the bus to go home. 

Panel 4 1/9 page 

Extreme close-up of Donna, struggling to remember things that seem long ago.  

Donna: Then somebody grabbed me, and then... I don't know. 

Panel 5 1/9 page 

Silent flashback of Donna being kidnapped at a bus stop, from her point of view. A light snow is falling. She can see a piece of a guy with hooded parka and a scarf over his face and a hypo in his hand, coming for her. Her hand is up, trying to fend off the hypo, but another guy is holding her from behind and his hand is pulling her hand back. He'd dragged her a few feet and we can see tracks in the snow. Another guy in the background is picking up her handbag and shopping bag.  

Panel 6 1/9 page 

Pull camera to outside windshield, straight on shot of her, still looking out the window. See a little bit of Fitz, cropped. 

Donna: I woke up in this big room, and I could see out the window. I was in the mountains. 

Panel 7 1/9 page 

Silent flashback of Donna waking up, again her point of view. She's laying on the bed. She can see a matronly caretaker looming over her, and another nurse carrying a tray with juice. It is an opulent bedroom, pretty, airy, light and beautiful. There 's a large window and we can see the Rockies.  

Panel 8 1/9 page 

Shoot outside the windshield from Fitz's side, past his hand on the steering wheel. He's still looking straight ahead.  

She's turned and is sitting forward, but is slumped down - as if having a failure of memory.  

Donna: After that, everything's kinda hazy. 

Fitz: It's a drug they gave you in the juice. It makes you compliant and disoriented. 

Panel 9 1/9 page 

Shoot from the floor at her. She's looking down, still blankly. We can see a little cleavage, since she's leaving over. The trenchcoat has fallen away and we can see her leg is bare underneath.  

Donna: I remember, um...they gave me a bath... 


Page 4 3/17-20 

Panel 1 1/9 page 

Crop shot of Donna, chin down. She's touching her throat, as if remembering being prepared.  

Donna: …and massaged me and put on perfume and dressed me. 

 

Panel 2 1/9 page 

Silent flashback panel of Donna being prepped for the ceremony, again from her pov. She is sitting at a vanity and is looking at herself in the mirror. Her hand is in a matching position on her throat as Panel 1. She has a drugged look on her face. We can see attendants putting jewels in her hair and fussing with it.  

Panel 3 1/9 page 

Dead on shot of Donna. She looks scared and is pulling the coat around her tight. 

Donna: Then they took me into this big room and they put me on a table. When they put the handcuffs on me... I got really scared. 

Panel 4 1/9 page 

Very extreme close-up of her eyes and nose, maybe a bit of her hair. Don't forget one eye is blackened; crop away most of the bruise. Angle on her head is kind of up, that arcs her brows a little more, so she looks scared. 

Donna: I wanted to scream or run but... it was like a bad dream, I couldn't move. 

Panel 5 1/9 page 

Silent flashback panel of the ceremony beginning, from Donna's pov. She's laying on an altar, being chained, looking up at her captors. We can see the cuffs going on her wrists. We can also see the priestess, small, in the background, presiding over the ceremony. The priestess holds a big ceremonial dagger.  

Panel 6 1/9 page 

Shoot past Donna. She is holding her arm up and looking at the cuff and a bit of dangling chain, which obviously has been cut. She wants to disbelieve her memories, and yet there on her wrist is proof. He is driving, but has taken his eyes off the road and is looking at her, understanding what she's going through

Panel 7 1/9 page 

Close up of Fitz, grim-looking. 

Fitz: And then...? 

Panel 8 1/9 page 

Donna tightening up, clenching her hands into fists at her chest. 

Panel 9 1/9 page 

Silent flashback. Donna's POV: Demon mounting her. &e (Possible OCR error?) tastefully subtle layout.
