I surprised myself with how quickly I managed to write this. After this I think I'll take a break for a few days. Episode 1 can be found here classiccomics.boards.net/thread/2593/supergirl-tv-show-episode-1?page=1&scrollTo=106858
And CS still means change scene.
Supergirl Episode 2
Sirens are heard as two police cars chase another car through the streets of Leesburg at night.
The camera zooms out from the chase to show a red cape fluttering in the wind high above the town.
The car is then shown making a sharp turn. The driver screams like a thrill seeker as the passenger looks behind them to be sure the cops aren't gaining.
The driver continues to act like he's having the thrill of his life when he hears something knocking on the window. He sees Supergirl flying next to his car. He and his partner look at each other in surprise, and then he lowers the window slightly.
“Sorry.” Supergirl says. “Just making sure you two are wearing your seat-belts.” She falls behind the car, and the crooks look at each other again.
The passenger is the first to turn his attention back to the road. “Watch out!” he yells, pointing ahead of them.
Supergirl is standing in the middle of the street, directly in their path. She holds her hands on her hips.
The driver, to the passenger's horror, screams again and steps on the accelerator. The car speeds towards the superhero.
Supergirl does not flinch as the car bears down on her. She holds out one hand and the car slams into it. The crooks are thrown forward in their seat-belts as their car is violently stopped.
The police cars stop shortly behind the crooks' car and the officers get out with their guns drawn.
Supergirl smiles and salutes the officers before flying straight up. They stare after her.
Fade into the opening credits.
A stack of papers is slammed onto the desk Cutter Sharp is standing in front of.
“I'm telling you,” Cutter tells his editor, “Linda Danvers is alive. I saw her being pulled out of the emergency room.”
The editor looks annoyed. “And you expect me to run the story based on your word alone? Neither the hospital nor the police would confirm that Linda Danvers was admitted, and her parents threatened to sue us when we tried to contact them.”
Cutter leans forward and puts his hands on the desk. “Don't you see? They're covering it up! There's a huge story here!”
The editor bangs his fist on his desk. “That's enough! I don't want to hear any ghost stories or conspiracy theories without proof!” He points at Cutter. “You're already past deadline. Now finish the story you were assigned at get out of my sight!”
Cutter looks dejected. “Yes, sir.”
Fred Danvers is livid.
“How could you let this happen?!” he screams at the hospital's director and head of security. Behind him Mattie is trying to comfort a sobbing Sylvia.
“Mr. Danvers,” PJ interjects, “please calm down.”
“No, I will not calm down!” Fred screams at him. “My daughter is out there alone, without her memories, and it's your fault!” He points at the director as he screams the last line.
The hospital director has had enough of Fred's accusations. “We don't know how she opened the window and got out. That will have to be investigated. Right now our priority has to be finding her again. And unless I'm mistaken, both of those tasks are your department, not mine.”
Fred grabs the director's coat. “If anything happens to my daughter, I'll see you in court.”
PJ grans Fred's arm. “Fred, don't do something you're going to regret.”
Fred sighs and lets go of the director's coat and goes back to his wife. The director and the head of security leave, with the director making hand motions to tell his head of security that he thinks Fred is crazy.
Sylvia fights back another sob and tells Fred “I've been thinking. Maybe I should go back to the television station and make another appeal. Maybe someone's seen her.”
“No.” Fred says firmly. “We've already got an APB out. But we don't know if there are more of those cultists out there. If there are, and they find out that Linda's on the street, they might try to take her again.”
Sylvia breaks down and hugs Fred. “What did we do to deserve this?” she begs.
“Nothing.” Fred assures her, now crying himself. “We didn't do anything.”
Mattie puts her hand on Sylvia's shoulder. “Hey. Linda'll turn up. You'll see. She's tough.”
“Mattie's probably right.” PJ assures them. “In the meantime you two had better get home. You both need to rest, and Linda's a lot more likely to go home than to come back here.”
Fred nods. “Thank you, PJ.”
The two men hug and Fred and Sylvia leave.
“So,” PJ asks Mattie, “how was your day at school?”
“I got detention because of you.” Mattie answers.
PJ shakes his head and smiles slightly. “Still can't wait for the bell to ring before checking your text messages, can you?”
Fred and Sylvia are preparing for bed. Fred sighs sadly as he lies down. Sylvia goes to the window, closes her eyes, and starts to pray.
As Sylvia prays the camera pulls out from the window and across the street, showing Linda standing on the sidewalk. She is in her brunette form, but still wearing the Supergirl costume.
Linda is nervously mouthing what she would tell her parents if they were together. Her practicing isn't going well.
Linda gets frustrated and looks like she is about to cry. She holds up a hand towards her parents' bedroom and starts to take a step forward.
A siren blares in the distance, causing Linda to turn her head.
Sylvia finishes her prayers and opens her eyes. For a second she seems to see something across the street, but the camera shows that the street is empty.
The camera pulls away from the house, and we see the bedroom light go out.
Buzz, still in his black trench coat, is walking through the streets the next morning. He stops at a news stand and picks up a newspaper.
Buzz turns the page and sees the headline Supegirl Survives Warehouse Explosion. He smiles and puts the newspaper in one of the large pockets of his trench coat.
Buzz starts whistling 'Pop goes the Weasel' as he walks away.
Three men in ski masks are holding up a jewelry store.
“That's it!” the leader says as his colleagues grab as much jewelry as they can. “Take everything!” He holds the store employees as well as the costumers against the wall at gunpoint.
“All right.” he says when the other crooks have gathered as many jewels as they can carry. He addresses the frightened civilians. “We thank you for your cooperation.”
“It's always nice to meet a polite crook. They're really a rarity.”
The crooks turn to see Supergirl standing in the doorway. She holds out her hand. “Now the polite thing to do would be to hand over your weapons.”
The leader turns his gun on Supergirl and fires several shots at her. All of the bullets bounce off of her chest.
Supergirl looks down at her chest and then back at the leader. She tilts her head slightly. “Really?” she asks.
Suddenly Supergirl is standing inches in front of the leader. She grabs his gun and crushes it in one hand without ever taking her eyes off of his face.
“Really?” she asks again.
Cutter throws the morning paper in the garbage and grumbles to himself as he gets into his car. He turns on some rap music on the radio and moves his head to the beat as he drives.
While stopped at a red light Cutter sees two men in red cloaks taking a small child into the back of a green van. He immediately turns the radio off and pulls out his cell phone.
“911?” Cutter says into his phone. “I've got an emergency. I think I just saw that cult that's been murdering those people kidnap a kid. Their in a big green van, pulling away from the corner of Maple Street and Wanda Lee Drive....Please hurry. With my luck I'm gonna get a ticket for talking on my phone while driving.”
Cutter puts the phone down and starts to follow the van. “Then again,” he says to himself, “there might be a hell of a story here.”
Cutter continues to follow the van as it goes through an older section of town and turns onto a narrow, one way street.
Suddenly the van stops, forcing Cutter to step on the brakes to avoid crashing into it. Immediately another van comes up behind him, boxing him in.
“Shit!” Cutter curses.
“Well, well, what do we have here?” Buzz says as he approaches Cutter's car. “Someone who wants to play hero?”
Cutter makes an 'eek' face where his mouth opens wide horizontally but not vertically.
“No, no.” Cutter opens his briefcase and takes out his pen and notebook. “I'm-I'm a reporter, just looking for a story.” Cutter gives a fake laugh. “Would you be willing to do an interview?”
Buzz lights a cigarette. “Oh, we can do better than that.”
“You can?” Cutter asks.
“Oh yes.” Buzz takes the cigarette out of his mouth and grins. “How would you like to have some first-hand experience?”
Supergirl flies low over the city, smiling and waving at the people cheering her below.
“Supergirl!” she hears Fred's voice call out. “Hey! Supergirl!”
She sees that Fred is calling to her from close to the police station. He is wearing his police uniform.
“I really need to talk to you!”
Supergirl tries to smile and floats down to Fred. “Um, yes, Officer Danvers?”
Fred breathes a sigh of relief. “I can't tell you how glad I am to run into you. First off, I want to thank you for finding Linda.”
“Yes.” Supergirl says uncomfortably. “How is she?”
“That's what I need your help with.” Fred tells her. “Linda ran out of the hospital yesterday and we haven't seen her since. If you could find her again...”
Supergirl is silent for a few seconds, then says “I'll see what I can do.”
Supergirl starts to float up again. “Have a good day, Officer Danvers.”
“You too, Supergirl.”
Supergirl flies away from the police station in a bad mood.
“Weeeellllllllll.” she hears Buzz's voice say.
Supergirl stops and looks around. She sees Buzz on a nearby roof.
“Why didn't you tell daddy dearest about your little resurrection trick on his daughter?” Buzz asks.
“You!” Supergirl yells. She charges at Buzz fists first. However, she just flies through him.
Buzz laughs. “Did you think you were the only one with powers beyond those of mortal men?”
Buzz's laughter is heard even though his mouth isn't moving. Supergirl covers her ears and screams “Get out of my head!”
Buzz holds up his hands. “Sure. As I understand it it's a little crowded in there right now anyway.”
“You...” Supergirl growls as she lowers her hands. “You did this! Change us back!”
“Me?” Buzz does an over-the-top gesture of shock at being accused. “All I tried to do was summon an ancient demon. Your little identity problem is all on you.”
Buzz smiles. “But I am interested in what you've become. So what do you say to a little test?”
Supergirl turns to leave. “Forget it. I'm not playing any of your games.”
“Even if there's a life at stake?”
Supergirl stops. “What?”
“An innocent man is about to die.” Buzz gloats. “And playing my game is the only chance you have to save him.”
Supergirl clenches her fists in anger.
The camera shows the outside of a run down movie theater before moving inside, where a small crowd is cheering the show being performed on the stage.
On the stage Cutter is lying in the center of another pentagram, clutching his bleeding stomach. Behind him is another portal, identical to the one seen in episode 1. In front of him is the child he saw getting into the van earlier, only he is no child.
He holds up a bloodied knife, also identical to the one used to stab Linda in episode 1.
“You poor schmuck.” the midget says. “You really thought a was a kid being taken?”
Cutter groans in pain.
“Well, you know what they say about 'no good deed.'” the midget taunts.
The midget walks past Cutter and places the knife into the portal. The crowd cheers and Cutter stares in horror as the portal dissolves and a large figure takes its place.
Where the portal once stood there now stands a seven foot tall creature. It has the form of a body builder, fire orange fur all over its body, and the head of a saber-tooth tiger.
The midget kneels. “Lord Chakat. At last.”
Lord Chakat sniffs the air. “I smell blood.” he says in a deep voice.
“Yes.” The midget gestures at Cutter. “We have brought you a sacrifice to celebrate your return to the human world.”
Cutter shakes his head in terror and mutters “No.” over and over again.
“I hunger.” Chakat says, beginning to walk towards Cutter.
There is a loud boom as the back wall explodes. Supergirl flies through the hole in the wall and lands on the stage.
The crowd starts to scream and head towards the exits.
Chakat belches a fire ball from his mouth at the exits, blocking them off.
Supergirl regard Chakat with caution. “What the hell are you?”
Chakat leers at her. “The one who interfered with my earlier crossing. The two-who-are-one.” He steps towards her. Supergirl takes a step back.
Chakat unleashes another fire blast from his mouth. This one is much bigger and brighter than the earlier ones. Supergirl shields herself with her forearms, but the blast still knocks her off of the stage.
Chakat stands over her and gloats. “Yes. I shall feast on the living heart of that which once did not truly live. Then nothing will stand in the way of my conquest of this world.”
Supergirl rises. “I think you'll find that I'm more than you can chew.”
She flies at Chakat, and they throw punches at each other at the same time. Their fists collide, causing a shockwave that knocks everyone else in the theater down and causes the whole building to shake.
Supergirl sees Cutter fall off the stage and makes a move to help him. While she is distracted, Ckakat lands a blow on the side of her face. She slides to the edge of the stage.
Supergirl rises again, this time rubbing her cheek where she had been punched. Her eyes narrow in concentration, and Chakat is struck by a powerful telekinetic blast. He is forced backwards into the wall, cracking it.
Chakat hunches over and holds his chest. Supergirl has hurt him badly.
Chakat roars in anger and raises his arm. A large sword appears in his hand, and he then brandishes it in both hands.
Supergirl sees the design on the sword and flashes back to the knife she destroyed in episode 1. That knife had the same design as the sword.
Chakat charges at Supergirl with the sword raised over his head. He brings it down on her, and she catches the blade between her palms. The force of Chakat's blow causes her to have to lean very far back to avoid being sliced down the middle.
Both combatants grit their teeth as they struggle to move the sword. Chakat growls, drool dripping from his open mouth.
Supergirl slowly straightens her back, gaining more leverage.
She glares at Chakat and growls through her gritted teeth. “Get...the hell...OFF MY PLANET!”
Supergirl snaps the blade of the sword in two. With his weapon destroyed, Chakat backs up in horror.
Chakat screams “You don't know what you've done!” He slowly fades from our realm.
The battle won, Supergirl goes over to Cutter, who is barely conscious.
“Are you all right?” she asks.
Cutter smiles and raises his hand so he can wag his finger at her. “I want an interview...”
Later, after he is out of surgery, Supergirl visits Cutter in his hospital room.
“I understand that you're going to have a full recovery.”
Cutter grins. “Seems that way.”
“You're in pretty good spirits for someone who was almost stabbed to death.” she obseres
“As long as I can still write I'm golden.” Cutter assures her. “And they didn't cut my hands. Also, this means I'm finally gonna get a call from my mom where she doesn't yell at me.”
Supergirl looks to the side. “You see this as a chance to reconnect with your family.”
Supergirl looks at him seriously. “The leader of that cult is still out there. I'm going to stop him.” She turns to leave through the window.
“And then you'll move on to another town?” Cutter asks. “Go back to wandering the country?”
Supergirl stops for a second. “I have no intention of leaving Leesburg.” she says softly before flying out of the window.
Cutter's eyes widen. Then he smiles.
“Now that's a story.”
Another large crowd, this time of civilians, has gathered outside of the movie theater to watch the police take away all of the cultists.
“I never knew this group was so big.” one observer says in shock.
An older woman shakes her head. “Young people these days. I tell you, this town is going straight to hell.”
“I don't know about straight.” Buzz says from within the crowd of observers. He pushes his way out of the crowd and walks down the street on his own, grinning from ear to ear.
“After all, getting there is half the fun.”
Sylvia is watching the news about the mass arrest at the movie theater while Fred reads a novel.
Fred decides that he can't bear to listen to the news anymore and starts to head upstairs.
The door bell rings, and Sylvia turns off the television to go answer it.
Sylvia looks through the peephole to see who it is, and her jaw drops. She rushes to open the door.
Standing in the doorway is Linda, still wearing her hospital gown from the day before.
“FRED!” Sylvia calls.
“What is it?” Fred yells from the top of the stairs. Sylvia is speechless and does not answer him.
Fred comes to the door and stops, looking shocked.
Linda takes a deep breath. “Mom....dad....um...hi...”
“Ohhhh!” Sylvia screams and embraces her daughter. Fred joins in and makes it a group hug.
All sound stops other than the music that plays during this reunion. The three-way hug continues until the credits start, and all three Danvers are crying tears of joy.
After circling the family several times, the camera focuses on Linda's face as she laughs and cries at the same time.
