MR. TRENGER: Please send in Saul. Mr. Trenger continues pacing until the buzzer goes off. He presses the button, and the door opens, allowing Saul, who is still wearing his blue VR jumpsuit, to enter. SAUL: You wanted to see me, sir? MR. TRENGER: I’ve been to see Mr. Oleander. SAUL: Yes, sir. And, what did he say? MR. TRENGER: We’ve got to bring these hackers down, Saul. I want you to go back through all the tapes of every reality they’ve ever hit until you find something useful. Put a team together if you have to. Your number one job is to find these rebels. SAUL: Yes, sir. I’m on it, sir. MR. TRENGER: Now get out. Saul exits quickly. Mr. Trenger goes to the keyboard, types, brings up the latest hacker scene from before, and begins studying it. INT. REBEL HEADQUARTERS - MORNING Zane, Victor, and Eli stand before a large crowd of mis-matched rebels in the lobby. Some women and children stand in the back of the crowd, the men at the front. ZANE: Alright, the plan is as follows. We will have three separate attacks on three different clients, all from locations secured away from the main headquarters. The teams will be led by Victor, Eli, and myself. Each team does not know the location or the target of the others, and only I know all the targeted clients. This should assure safety if any team should be located or should fail for all other teams and for those that remain here at headquarters. Any questions? There is some murmuring, but no one raises a hand. ZANE (CONT’D): Very good. Teams, head out! INT. VIRO HEADQUARTERS - MORNING Saul is working on a large screen computer, surrounded by a few other people in blue jumpsuits. They watch five scenes on the divided screen, all very similar to the Lionel Green scene from before. SAUL: Freeze! Freeze the screen, right there! The scenes are all frozen on the image of the Man In Black, and Saul paces, pondering the frozen scenes. SAUL: Right there! Do you see? TARA, a woman in a blue jumpsuit, comes over to him. TARA: What are we looking at, Saul? SAUL: Tara, it’s right there! The man! Do you all not see? TARA and all the people exchange confused glances. SAUL: That man! I know he’s covered, but it’s the same man! Get the facial identifying program online. A man in a blue jumpsuit goes over to another computer and begins typing frantically. One of the images is pulled out, and the technology begins searching.
