I know itís hard but we have
to keep moving before she returns.
(hurting over ďkillingĒ her child)
What do you mean?† She canít return.
I used Michaelís sword to vanquish her.
No, you only wounded her.† She can
still return.† We need to keep you safe
until sundown and the Awakening is
complete. Come on.
They mount up.† Eve gets on the horse sheíd taken from Eion, and Gabrielle holds her hand out to Hope.†
Are you sure?
Very sure.† Come on.† Weíll talk later.
They ride off in an effort to stay ahead of the forces of hell long enough for the sun to set.
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Cut to:
Int-Luciferís throne room
Rachel lies on her side in hell, crying softly.† She does not see Lucifer watching her from the shadows with disgust on his face.
Why Mama?† Why?
Lucifer comes out of the shadows and walks slowly toward her.† He stands over her for a moment then brutally kicks her in her wounded gut.† She screams in pain and he grabs her by her hair, jerking her to her feet.†
Rachel.† You sentimental fool!†
I should have known youíd still have a
soft spot for you mother.
Rachel jerks free of Lucifer and we see her face coated with tears.
Donít you worry about my spots Lucifer.
She made you weak with all her
talk of love!
Weak?† Because she taught me to feel?
Yes! Itís feelingís that land
people in this God-forsaken
place. I should know.
For the first time since I met you I hate you.
Do you really think I care?
Your job is to bring me Callistoís
soul!† Not ponder your
I didnít ask to be created!
Nobody does!† Iím not here to
debate the reason for it all Rachel.†
Iím here to offer you a choice.
All of Rachelís fire seems to drain from her.
I can barely stand the suspense,
so tell me what it is.
The Awakening has begun.† Itís
Unstoppable once it starts.† Your
mother is returning regardless of
if she wants to or not.† If you can
have her here in hell when she
completes her transformation at
sunset, I can corrupt her and she
will tell me the secret location
of Heavenís Gate.
I know.† Youíve told me this a
Thousand times.† Whatís the
choice you were talking about?
You can bring her back to hell where
she belongs and have your precious
mommy back, or, you can roast forever
in the Lake of Fire.
You sick bastard.
Lucifer chuckles, genuinely amused be the fear he sees in her eyes at this and the anger it inspires within her at the same time.
Thatís my girl.† Fail, I will
torment you for eternity.
Fine.† Iíll do that, but first thereís
something I have to do for myself.
Do for yourself? What would that be?
None of your business!
Iím the King of Hell little girl.†
Everything is my business.
And Iím Hellís Princess.† Iíll be
back when Iím finished.
A green mist envelops Rachel and she fades away before he can object any further.† Lucifer settles back in his new throne looking contemplative as he tries to figure out what she may be up to.
Michael and other angels continue to do battle against the forces of Hell on the same battleground seen in ďFallen AngelĒ.† While Michael is fighting he hears a whispering sound and pulls another angel to him.
Do you hear that?
I donít hear anything.
Michael letís him go and looks around as he flies into the air to searches the stone pillars below him for the source of the voice.† He finally finds a pillar with only one being.† As he flies closer he sees it is Rachel.† He draws his sword, ready to fight.
I didnít come here to fight.
Thereís a first.† What do you
want demon?† Iím busy.
I have questions that need answering.
Go to your master.† Heíll answer them.
Michael turns to fly away but there is something in Rachelís voice that makes him stay.
Please Michael.† Heíll only lie.
Ask.† I donít promise to answer.
But your answer will be the truth.
I know that much.† I was born of hell
by two demons.
I was never given a chance
to choose to fight for good.†
I was always told I was bad,
and that I had no soul.† Is this
true?† Am I only what I was told that
I am or am...Am I more?
Michael studies her with something akin to pity.† He knows she is here because of the love she has found for her mother, and perhaps this can be her saving grace.
You already know the answer to that
My motherÖshe hurt me today.
Michael sighs and walks slowly over to her, taking her shoulders in his hands.
You must ask yourself: Which
did your motherís betrayal
hurt worse?† Your body or your
Rachel dissolves into tears but Michael takes pity on her and pulls her close, rocking her until she can calm down.
Yes.† Your soul. Youíre right
Rachel; you didnít have a choice.
You were forced into hell and
for that, Iím sorry.
Save me Michael.† I donít want to do
these terrible things anymore.
I just want to know peace andÖ
Iím afraid of being tortured.
Your salvation is up to the
Master, not me.† Besides, youíre not
the first one to ask for divine
mercy today.† I will see what I
I promise.† Until then do what
your master orders. This will
keep you from suspicion.† Go.
Are you sure thatís wise? I
might actually succeed.
Iím very sure. No go.
Michael turns to leave but Rachel has a few last words.
Thank you Michael.† For
being so kind.
Youíre welcome Rachel.
Rachel watches Michael fly off.

Moving On-Act 4
Fade In-Road-Two hours before sunset
Gabrielle, Eli, Hope and Eve make their way down a road.† As they do rain clouds have darkened the sky, threatening a storm.† Gabrielle dismounts.
Can you guys ride on? I need to
speak with Eli.
They agree and continue on while Gabrielle walks on with Eli.
