Female: (Sitting the roast on the table) Steve, where's David?
Steve: Jena, I don't know.
Jena: David (Not hearing the first time) David
(The camera spots a 17 year old teen sporting out with plaid jeans and plaid shirt; he sits next to the right side of his father)
David: Sorry, study time was a little late.
David: So...(Seeing the food) Wow, this food is delicious
Jena: (Serving Steve's plate and put it by him then fixing David's plate and giving it to David) Um, I kind of like your new attitude unlike last time.
David: Last time didn't suit me, but I'm changing. (Starting to eat)
Jena: (Smiling) Steve, Steve
Steve: (Putting his newspaper down) What?
Jena: Your food is ready for you.
Steve: Thanks, honey.
Jena: (Simply ignoring, then concentrate on David as she starts to eat) So, I heard there's a girl at school you got have a crush on.
David: There's no girl.
Jena: Come on, you been talking about this girl...Julie for days.
Steve: (The camera views the paper covering her face) Leave the boy alone.
Jena: I can't...I'm a mother.
David: Yeah a mother that needs to shut up.
Steve: (Seeing he is getting paged) I have to get this. Save my food. (Leaving out)
Jena: Steve (To David) How can you say that...(Back to Steve as he already left)
David: Mom, sorry for what I said earlier, but I'm right anyway. You can't say I just like Julie Madison and get over it.
Jena: David, come on you're ridiculous.
David: What (Standing up) Why can't you just leave me alone and get out of my life.
Jena: I'm only try to be a good mother.
David: Good mother, the only mother you mean to me is a dead one (Heading to the stairs).
Jena: What ? (Standing up and trying to catch him up) Hold it...
David: I hope you just die
(The camera zooms into his eyes as we see the phoenix-like color corneas glow very brightly and it shines as the camera zooms out of Jena's eyes doing the same thing and then all of the sudden she collapses into unconsciousness on the floor)
(David heads to her and then trying to revive his mom, but to no prevail she's gone; David is totally depress as he runs upstairs)
(Cuts inside the bathroom as David slams the door open and starts washing his face with water trying to get rid of depression and disgust about what just happened; he then looks at himself at the mirror as he head out, he grabs a brush and throws it at the mirror as the glass is cracked open; we see David totally angry and surprise with his new power)

(Cuts to see a view of the warehouse)
(Cuts inside as we see everything is cleaned up and we notice Julie just sweeping; Jason appears as he sees the building)
Julie: (Seeing him) Hi
Jason: Hi, sorry to scare you, but I think you know me more like my father, Victor Powers.
Julie: Oh yeah, you're Jason. My dad been helping your dad with a lot of legal stuff. In fact how you know I was here.
Jason: I'm best friends with Bruce; he got feelings for you.
Julie: (Smiling) Thanks for your compliment.
Jason: I was wondering (Checking out the sight of the building) if you help me, I will help you.
Julie: Help with me how?
Jason: Bruce been telling me you wanted to lease this place as sort of a hangout place; I can help you make this into a hangout heaven, if you help me with something.
Julie: (About to decide) Okay, but what do I have to help you.
Jason: Your father has some connections with the higher level courts.
Julie: I think so, why?
Jason: I need him to do a huge favor and asked one of them to send a file of EuroTron.
Jason: Oh, it's a huge word you don't have to worry. So, can you do that for me while I head out to the leasing headquarters downtown in order to get that official lease.
Julie: ... (Almost about to decide)
(Bruce enters between the two as they stop their little conversation)
Bruce: What's going on here.
Jason: We were just discussing...
Julie: Procedures of leasing this place.
Jason: (Looking at her)
Julie: That's all it was, just business.
Jason: I have to go, but remember what I said (To Julie then to Bruce) See you soon...I'm out. (Leaving)
Bruce: (Seeing him gone; he heads to Julie) So, about last week.
Julie: Oh you mean at your house; I was waiting for you then I felt to sleep; then Alfred dropped me off home that next morning.
Bruce: I was wondering why did you want to wait for me.
Julie: (Ignoring her feelings) Can't a friend worry about that friend's safety, especially inside this neck of this city.
Bruce: Well I love you for that and thanks again for waiting.
Julie: No problem, you would do the same thing for me.
Bruce: In a heartbeat.
Bruce: Well, I forgot we got school in one hour.
Julie: Oh yeah, I totally forgot this is a school day.

Julie: Catch me if you can. (Running out of the building)
Bruce: Hey! (Running after her)
*Ext. Gotham High School
(Cuts to a view of the high school then inside)
(Cuts to kids hanging out five minutes before the late bell rings; we see Leo walking in the hallways chatting with others in the process and the camera spots Bruce and Julie running into the hallway just in time; Leo sees them and heads towards them)
Leo: Look who showed before the predominable bell.
Bruce: Thank goodness we made it before the bell.
Julie: I told you that shortcut was a great plan.
Bruce: I know.
Leo: Okay, what shortcut? Where were you two?
Julie: We were at the warehouse.
Leo: Oh, the place you is cleaning up in fact you don't have a lease.
Julie: Actually I'm going to. Thanks for Jason.
Leo: Wait, Jason Powers, son of Darth Vader.
Julie: Yes, my father helped his father, so he want to make it up for it by giving me a lease.
Leo: Just don't want you to go in bed with him.
Julie: (A little stunned)

Julie: I notice.
(Shifts to David entering the hallway door as everyone looks at him and Bruce and Julie notice)
Julie: Why is everyone looking at David.
Bruce: David Lessner; well his mother just died mysteriously and he was there when he lost her.
Julie: (Gasping) Oh my; I hope he's okay.
(David reaching to the locker; Julie approach him)
David: (Sees her) Hi Julie.
Julie: Hi back, sorry about your lost.
David: (Focusing on her then gets back to reality) Oh, thank you.
Julie: I wanted to know if you feel lonely, you can always hang out with me, Bruce, and Leo.
David: Wait hang out with Bruce Wayne and Leo Foster. Why them?
Julie: They're my best friends, and Bruce lost his parents when he was young. I lost my mother when I was thirteen and Leo's mother ran away when he was six.
Julie: That's how we became best of friends because of losing our parents we felt lonely, but together we're strong.
David: I never knew.
Julie: At least now you know. (Giggling)
David: Okay, I'm going to take that offer. See you at lunch. (Heading out)
(Bruce shows up)
Bruce: So how he felt.
Julie: About his mother's death, he's still adjusting, but you can tell that to him because I offered him a spot at lunch.
Bruce: Whoa, you asked David to join us.
Julie: You know he's lonely because of her death; you know that feeling, I do, even Leo know that feeling of losing a love one or two.
Bruce: I hope you know where you going with this.
Julie: I do, stop being so jealous all of the sudden. (Walks off)

*Int. Victor's office
(Cuts inside as we see Victor working on a few files and then we see his secretary coming in)
Victor: Yes, Helena what do you need?
Helena: Sir, a Mr. Robin Wilden has come to see you.
Victor: (About to ignore what she is saying and continues with his work until he hears that name) Repeat that name again.
Helena: Robin Wilden.
Victor: (Drops his pen as he sits back to his chair worrying about the last time those two met as they have met before)
Helena: Shall I rescheduled the appointment.
Victor: (Stopping her) No, no Let him come in.
(Helena leaves as Robin Wilden, a tall man with a Caucasian look and whitish-blonde hair look kind of middle age as he enters the room)
Robin: Victor Powers, long time no see.
Victor: Long time no see to you, Robin, in fact why are you here.
Robin: Business matters.
Victor: What kind of business matters do you need to take care of.
Robin: Something that is the opposite of you of course.
Victor: Like I said, why are you here.
Robin: Like I said, business.
(Then there's a room of silence)
Robin: I guess I have to go, my 3:00 appointment is ticking.
Victor: What so called... never mind it's just business.

Alfred: Master Bruce, will any of your friends will be showing up tonight.
Bruce: Yeah, Julie.
Alfred: Finally fed about those feelings with Ms. Madison; did you asked her to join you.
Bruce: Kind of actually not yet, but I know its destiny.
Alfred: Hah, that infamous D word.
Bruce: What you mean about that? What so infamous about the word destiny?
Alfred: it's just that when people say it's destiny, it winds up being a self-falsifying prophecy.
Bruce: Wait you mean to tell me that you can't mess with fate.
Alfred: I mean if a person forced fate to happen, it will soon lead them into serious consequences; Look what happened to Macbeth, King Arthur, and even Anakin Skywalker.
Bruce: Guess you can't tampered with fate, but what happen if a person already forced it?
Alfred: Well, who knows what will happened. But if you and Ms. Madison are destined to be, you can't forced it. Just let it go through in time. (Heading into the walk-in pantry)

Leo: I have a tuna fish sandwich.
Julie: I made a fruit salad. Nutritious and delicious.
Leo: More like unskillful and malicious.
Leo: I'm talking about Bianca over there.
(The camera shifts to a long-hair brunette then back to the gang)
Julie: That's true, she's being what hurting people with stupid words since the third grade.
Bruce: I'm surprised she kept that trend so long.
Julie: I'm surprised she kept that look for so long.

Bruce: No it wasn't.
Julie: (Seeing he is interesting) Hey David, why don't I take a walk with you.
David: I would be honored.
(Bruce and Leo a little bit stunned; Julie stands up and walks along with David; shifts back to the others)

Dr. Birch: I have a feeling I'm next; the files of Project Zephyr never came to surpass.
Bradson: So whoever is doing this is also corrupting the files.
Dr. Birch: I will do everything in my power to stop the hackers and the infections.

(Cuts to see the school then David accompanying by Julie)

David: Well yesterday was the first day we ever met.
Julie: And now we're knowing each other personally.
David: (Kind of blushing)

(Shifts to the backyard to see Bruce bringing Julie in the courtyard)
Julie: Bruce what is it?
Bruce: I just have to say it, I really don't trust him.
Bruce: I just don't.
Julie: Is it you don't trust him because he have a sudden fixation on me.
Bruce: No, it's not that.
Julie: Alright so tell me, what is it.
Bruce: I can't say.
Julie: So you don't trust him because of what...you can't say.
Bruce: Julie I want to...(Getting a phone message from Alfred) I got to take this, I'm sorry but I can't say. (Heads out)
Julie: (Couldn't believe it)
(The camera sees Bruce leave as David sneakily entering the scene)

Julie: Lose me; lose me how?
David: Be my girlfriend.

*Int. Lab Sector D
(Cuts inside the damaged sector as we a huge hole caused by the lighting storm months ago)
Lucius: (Walks around and survey the damage area and then notices something; he sees a smudge mark near the area where the Phoenix chemicals once was; he somehow sees it and realizes that instant that mark wasn't made by a lighting bolt, but a controlled-Nitrogen base is a significant example; he feels that someone intentionally caused the explosion knowing Nitrogen is a very combustible catalyst)

Bruce: (Still thinking about that kiss and focus on Alfred) Yeah, Alfred, why you called?
Alfred: Lucius called and he wanted to tell you that the chemical explosion from your father's company wasn't accidental, but more like incidental.
Bruce: Wait, someone wanted that chemical to be exploded, but who?
Alfred: Lucius didn't say, but he did say whoever did had a strong connection within your company. He also said he will find the one who did this.
Bruce: Thanks Alfred.
Alfred: And before you go, what happened?
Bruce: Excuse me?

David: Yeah, I like that too.
Julie: If you haven't notice, the aquarium was one of the best places I liked about this city.

Leo: Listen David, I don't know what you did, but my friend is not like that...you need to stop what you're doing.
David: Here is what I think! You back off and leave me and my girlfriend alone...
(the camera zooms into David's eyes as we see the phoenix-like color corneas glow again very brightly and it shines as the camera zooms out of Leo's eyes doing the same thing and then all of the sudden he shakes his head)
Leo: (Letting go of his shirt and walks off kind of feeling weird)
David: (Happy that's over almost about to head back to his girl until a limo pulls up and the window goes down revealing to be Victor Powers) Mr. Powers?

Robin: The pleasure is all yours. I see your father's arrogance hasn't made you like a oppressive pawn.
Jason: Thanks, I think.
Robin: Now since the years have passed by, I want to know why did you invited me.
Jason: You and my dad had a bad history together, each trying to be the better than the other.
Robin: Well, I know one thing...whatever the reason you brought me back, I don't care. I'm ashamed he didn't died sooner.
Jason: Even though I despise the man, I don't want nothing harm put on him.

Bruce: Okay, (grabbing the glass and then out of nowhere he throws the water)
Leo: (gets splashed by the water and the camera zooms into his eyes as the phoenix-like hypnosis fades away; the camera zooms back as we see him turning back) What...What happened?
Bruce: In my estimation, you was hypnotized.
Leo: What...(remembering what happened before coming here) that darn David.
Bruce: I know that text message will answer my doubts about you.
Leo: Sorry man, I didn't know. And in fact how did you know?
Bruce: Well elementary my dear Watson, I noticed Julie would never date someone that fast and know she would always tell us.
Leo: Wait...of course why I didn't see it earlier. We got to save her.

Julie: Come on, we're all alone and why not take the advantage. (Holding his hands and then the box) What's that?
David: (Hides the box and pushes her hand away) I don't need this.
Bruce: Get your filthy hands off her.
David: I love her.
Bruce: You never did.
David: Stop telling lies.
Bruce: Come on, you just using your powers to trick her into being your girlfriend.
Bruce: You're not his girlfriend, he hypnotized you to make you think he's your boyfriend.
David: Not true.
Bruce: It is...Julie you always tell me mostly everything in your life because we're best friends.
Julie: I know we're best friends.
Bruce: Now look back and think is any of this is the truth.
Julie: (Heeding his advice, she looks back and noticed something is wrong and still tries to think what is right and wrong)
David: I love you...
Bruce: Julie... (He knocks David down)
(The force of him knocks the black box out of his hands as it rolls down in a corner)
David: (Getting mad; he punches Bruce as Bruce falls down)

Julie: Oh my God! Oh my...
Bruce: (The camera notices he was never under David's control and that he was a little hypnotized)
Julie: You scared me.
Bruce: I was barely hypnotized, but...
Julie: What happened?
Bruce: My affections for you were strong enough to stop his control; and I guess he was right, love is more powerful than hate and hypnosis.
Julie: (Smiling as she hugs him) Thank you for saving me.

Leo: So what happened to our Mr. Hudini-wannabe.
Bruce: He singing his blues in Arkham's psych ward.
Leo: Guess, he won't be able to do none of his tricks.
Alfred: Never underestimate a man with many tricks. Like the old saying goes, "You can't teach a old dog new tricks".
Leo: Well first of, he's with tons of other freaks with many talents. Maybe one day the ward would perform a talent show and almost all of the freaks can participate.
Alfred: (Being amused) I'll like to see a encore of that.
Bruce: Well at least no one got serious hurt.
Leo: Heard about happened at the Winston estate.
Leo: Someone with mystic abilities successfully got through every security and breaks into a vault and steals one Winston's valuables.
Alfred: I heard it was a box, a black box.
Leo: What would a common thief want with a black box.
Bruce: Well unless that thief can hypnotize people, I'm all lost.
Alfred: So you saying if David stole the box, who made him do it?
Leo: I thought the real question was where is the black box?
(As everyone speculates)
*Ext. Wayne Industries
(Cuts to see the view of the building at a angle)
(Cuts downstairs as we see the man from the previous episode who killed Dr. Benson walking towards the edge of the basement's center, then we see a shadowy figure walking by)
Man: The plan has been executed.
Man: So what is next.
Figure: (Showing his identity as Robin Wilden) I want justice. I want him to suffer everything people have gone through because of him.
Man: And how we do that.
Robin: We as mean I will show his son the true picture of his father's evil precipice; whatever it takes.
(Shifts to the man then back to Robin as he plans to show his new friend, Jason, Victor's true colors)
*Ext. Old Abandoned City Warehouse

Julie: (Smiling) I wonder.
Bruce: Wonder what...
Julie: Wonder what would happen if you never came and save me.

Bruce: So you saying..
Julie: Let's just be friends for now and then let's see how fate plays out.
Bruce: If I had a great enemy of all time, love and destiny would be a total killer.
Julie: (Laughing) So agreed?
Bruce: (Hesitating) Agreed.

*Int. Unknown office
