Eli, why are you here?†
You know.† I want to save
Eve and Hope for starters.
Thereís more, I can feel it.
Youíve become so wise Gabrielle.
There is more. My time to be
reborn to earth has come.† I am
here to find a mother.
I had hoped you would be the one,
but something tells me itís not meant
to be.† Your path as a warrior will not
Iím not ready for that. I Have so
much I need to do before I can
even consider falling in love
or starting a family.
I understand.† Believe me.† However
you do have a child that needs you.
Eli, I just donít know if I can forgive
her of all the things sheís done. I want
You feel that doing so would be a
betrayal to Xenaís memory. Gabrielle,
the greatest gift one person can give
to another is love.† You cannot have
love without forgiveness.†
You have no idea what Iíve been
Through with her Eli-
(takes her shoulders)
I know exactly what youíve been through
with her Gabrielle.† I also know she needs
you now more than she ever did.†
Can you really turn your back on
your own child?†
Eli looks to the sky.†
Itís going to rain soon.† We need to get
out of sight and out of the storm.
(calling back to them)
My faÖDahakís temple is up ahead. We
can take shelter in there.
Sounds like a plan.† Come on!
Rain begins to pour and Gabrielle mounts up behind Hope.† Eli fades away and the three women take off for the temple.
Int-Heavenís viewing room
Michael paces back and forth before the reflecting pool but stops when a beautiful blond angel appears.† Michael shakes hands with the angel.
Micah, friend.† What did He say?
Yes.† Concerning Eveís fate, He
says Gabrielle will only know peace
when she silences her will.
What does that mean?
I have no idea. Iím just the messenger here.
As far as Rachel goes Eve must slay the
demon in time.†
Let me get this straight: Gabrielle will only
know happiness when she silences her will, and
Eve must slay Rachel to save her.
Donít interpret Michael.† Thatís
not what I said.† Gabrielle will
only know peace when she silences
her will, and Eve must slay the
demon in time.† Tell them exactly
what He said. Apparently they
will figure out the answers on their own.
For their sakes I hope youíre
right.† Iíll give them His message.†
Int-Luciferís Throne Room
Lucifer sits on his throne.† He calls out in a thundering voice to his legions. In every corner of hell, his voice is heard.† In one room, a group of souls are hanging by their feet.† Demons beat them with whips.† They stop their torture only to listen to Luciferís speech.† In another torture chamber, a group of demons toss people into a lake of pure fire.† We see inside the fire glimpses of souls writhing in agony.† In another room there are guillotineís lined up, about five in a row.† Demons drag tortured spirits toward them to be beheaded.† In yet another room a man is trying desperately to climb from a pit full of snakes.† The snakes cling to him as he climbs.
My children.† The time has
come when we will take back
our daughter Callisto.
The demons cheer at his words and Lucifer pulls Rachel to stand at his side.
You all know Rachel, daughter
of Callisto and your former
king Mephistopheles.† She was born
of Hell and she will lead hell to victory!
The demons begin to cheer Rachelís name, but all of her usual sarcasm and arrogance is gone.† She looks at the demons not with pride, but with sadness, and becomes stiff when Lucifer wraps an arm around her and whispers to her.
You know the price of failure so
youíd better make me proud.
She gives him a hateful stare and fades away in a green mist.†
Int-Temple to Dahak
Gabrielle, Eve and Hope enter the temple to Dahak to find Eli waiting there already.†
We made it just in time.† Itís freezing.
I can fix that.†
Gabrielle throws her chakram at the altar.† The disk splits in-two and flies around the altar and it falls apart into neatly sliced pieces and everyone but Hope laughs and cheers.† Gabrielle holds out her hand.
Come back to Mama.
Obediently the Chakram rejoins and flies back to Gabrielle as if it understood what sheíd said.† Hope goes over to a window, disturbed at the sight of the altars destruction.† Realizing sheís done something to hurt her, Gabrielle grin slides from her face.
Go to her.
Hope?† Iím sorry. It was rude of
us to laugh.† He was your father.
He was the only one to ever love
me.† Now I wonder if he really did.
Love me I mean.
Gabrielle is wounded by Hopes words.† Eve and Eli watch the exchange.
Hope, I told you before that I did love
you. I justÖ
When Hope doesnít answer, Gabrielle turns her to face her.
Iíve told you a million times thatís not true.
It feels like the truth Mother.
Our past is full of sorrow Hope,
and we can never undo that, but
we can start from today. You
were reborn, so let us be reborn.
This can be day one for us Hope.
If you want it.
Itís what Iíve always wanted.
I love you Hope.†
I love you too. Iím sorry for
all the things Iíve done to you.
I really am.
Gabrielle thinks back onto what Eli had told her on the road just minutes ago.
You canít have love without
forgiveness Hope. I forgive you.
†††† ††† Hope
Iíve waited my entire life
to hear you say that.
Eli and Eve watch the tender exchange with emotion, but the moment doesnít last long as Rachel and her demons arrive outside.
Mother!† Iím not asking you
anymore. Iím telling you to
so come on!
My long lost daughter.
A hole is blasted through the temple doors and we look outside to see about thirty demons waiting in the courtyard.
The sun will set in less than an hour.
Hope, is there a back door?
Yes, in the library there
are some tunnels, but I have
no idea where they lead.
Rachel sees them taking off for the rear of the temple.† She looks regretful at the next order she must give.
The demons prepare to fly in but Eli holds his hand to the sky.† Suddenly the rain begins to eat through the demons like acid and they explode one after another.† Rachel makes it through before the rain can harm her.
What did you do?
I turned the rain to Holy water.
Hope opens a floor space in the library as Gabrielle bolts the door.†
