COWORKER: Let’s hope it’s not a virus.
Oh, wow. Oh. All right. Get this printed.
LUCY: Joe. Joey Adams. Ex-employee at Mendona University, research scientist. Fired in 2012 for workplace harassment. Richard Faust, known to his coworkers as Rick. Head of private security at the University, ex-military, ex-Drollex Corp too. Hardy’s previous posting.
ALEX PAPOULIAS: What, she just carries him with her?
ALEX PAPOULIAS: And this is Hardy?
ALEX PAPOULIAS: Oh, wow. OK. [KNOCKING ON DOOR]
JIM BROWN: Let me call you back. I hope you know more than last time, Alex.
ALEX PAPOULIAS: I’ve spoken with Judge Turner to arrange a warrant. I’m assembling a small team to bring Antonia Hardy in.
JIM BROWN: She’s one of the few people working on a vaccine.
ALEX PAPOULIAS: I believe she’s already developed it. I spoke with an ex-employee of hers–
JIM BROWN: Always reliable.
ALEX PAPOULIAS: –Who told me about a secret lab for off the record research. There are documents and emails from Hardy referring to the virus from before the outbreak. The ex-employee? Killed, I believe, by Hardy’s head of security. Somebody didn’t want him talking, and all he was talking about was Hardy.
JIM BROWN: And Turner just gave you the warrant?
ALEX PAPOULIAS: Well, no. I was hoping that you would vouch for me. Just twist her arm?
JIM BROWN: Vouch for you against Hardy, the head of medical continental research?
ALEX PAPOULIAS: I need to send a unit to the address. Just as reconnaissance.
JIM BROWN: If you’re wrong, Alex–
ALEX PAPOULIAS: I’m not wrong.
ALEX PAPOULIAS: Getting. Is the unit prepped and ready?
LUCY: They’re on their way. But Alex, we couldn’t get full protective gear. They said it was a waste of money and unnecessary.
ALEX PAPOULIAS: Well, what have they got?
Oh– have you seen Mara around? She said she’s gonna–
LUCY: She tried calling earlier. She’s going to try your mobile. She’s sick.
Okay– the team are about to reach the destination. Did you want to listen in? Alex?
TEAM MEMBER: (ON RADIO) We’re coming up to what looks like an old barn, abandoned. rusty. There’s a large padlock on the door. It’s new. [WOOD SPLINTERING]
TEAM MEMBER: (ON RADIO) Yeah, there’s some high tech equipment in here. Looks like a meth lab. Bio hazard suits on the wall. [GLASS BREAKING]
TEAM MEMBER: (ON RADIO) Soft drink bottle. Hold on. There’s someone here. He has a gun. Put the gun– [GUNSHOTS]
TEAM MEMBER: (ON RADIO) Suspect down. Richard Faust.
Heading out the back now. There’s a trail of blood, like somethings been dragged. Test animals, Alex. A lot of dead ones.
ALEX PAPOULIAS: Let’s go get Hardy.
