EXT. WHITEFALL – DAY – ESTABLISHING
A ghost town, little more than a small complex of RAMSHACKLE BUILDINGS, sits in a field of dust and scrub.
EXT. WHITEFALL – EDGE OF TOWN – DAY
The two BLUE HANDS stand in the dust in front of one of the buildings. A BULLET hits the ground at their feet.
We appreciate the warning shot…
The Blue Hands look in the direction the shot came from.
BLUE HAND#2 (cont’d)
LAWRENCE DOBSON stands on one of the buildings, looking down, a sniper rifle in his hands. He’s mangy and tattered, worse-for-the-wear, with a bulky, ugly CYBERNETIC DEVICE covering his right eye and part of his face.
Don’t. My depth perception’s not exactly what it used to be.
You invited us here.
Didn’t invite you to kill my men.
In the background, the SENTRY, injured by the Blue Hands at the end of the previous episode, coughs.
What exactly is it you want?
Same as you gentlemen.
INT. WHITEFALL – WORKSHOP – DAY
The three-story workshop is a converted warehouse. A half-dozen FOLKS bustle about, mostly around THE TICK, a space vehicle slightly smaller than one of Serenity’s shuttles.
The Tick is all engine, with a small two-man cockpit grafted on. The roof of the cockpit is taken up by a bizarre-looking AIRLOCK/RAMMING DEVICE that looks like it would be used to force its way through another ship’s airlock.
The rest of the workshop is filled with cots, arms lockers, tables, and workbenches. There are more than a few drawings or blueprints of Firefly-class vessels.
Dobson and the Blue Hands approach the Tick. Dobson trips over a tool, but catches himself.
RENNER joins them. He’s a squat little troll of a man, legless below the knees, seated in a powered WHEELCHAIR that seems closer to a one-man mule. The man is covered in grease, and the vehicle is covered with tools.
Renner here’s the one who came up with the solution I needed.
Just want to make sure those bastards pay for what they done.
Renner nods to the Blue Hands and rolls toward the Tick, joining the folk who are working on its underside.
He’s also the one who put me back together.
(touches his cybernetic eye)
Lost his wife when Reynolds brought the Reavers to Whitefall.
Dobson indicates all those working on the Tick.
They’ve all lost something. Or someone.
It seems that Captain Reynolds has quite a collection of enemies.
Dobson doesn’t need to say anything: he seethes with anger.
Find the ship, you find the man.
And we find River Tam.
Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it?
If it were, we wouldn’t be here.
The Blue Hands look around, taking in the workshop.
BLUE HAND#1 (cont’d)
You’ve clearly given this a great deal of thought.
You have the method. You have the men. You have the materials to make this happen.
What is it that you need from us?
Alliance access. Lost that when I lost my eye. I have the proper bait, can get Reynolds to go to it, but I need to know that there won’t be interference.
No one kills Reynolds but me.
The Blue Hands share a look.
You say the word, we can have them inside two weeks.
Two weeks? I believe we have a deal.
Dobson and Blue Hand#1 shake hands.
