Jonas: (Sitting in the dark library holding his father's journal) I've been reading the journal for the last day. Hearing the truth about my dad... well, about myself too. My dad spent years in a resistance, trying to rehabilitate Hymn of One members while at the same time fighting The Order. There's even a passage in here about La Crete, about how it was some- some place that was like a de facto headquarters for all The Order's experiments. Oh, it was- what did he say? Like a, "like a human custom center" where they would bring in each new trait positive girl and they would look at them, perform experiments on them, examine 'em and then when they were ready, ship 'em off to a new Hymn of One family. It even talks about Carruthers in here. I don't know who gave me this information last week but whoever they were, they were right. They were right to a point. Carruthers was in the Resistance, but he was a mole planted by The Order to corrupt and destroy the Resistance. While my dad was fighting The Order, Carruthers was poisoning the Resistance from the inside trying to convince everyone that the battle was futile, useless... and then he promised him something extraordinary. Something better than money, even better than power: life. Not just life, eternal life. He offered them the ability to conquer the unconquerable.
(Cut to Jonas setting a first aid kit onto his kitchen counter)
Jonas: Eventually Carruthers gained enough support to drive the, uh, better, less corruptible members into hiding. (Opens first aid kit and starts rummaging through it) You may be wondering what happened to those who converted. Well, Carruthers killed them once the job was done. They were nothing more than just... just puppets. See, when I was two or three I had a- a surgery. Something to do with my aortic arch. (Walks over to a drawer and gets a lighter) It was, um... I don't know, just a minor birth defect or something like that. (Walks over to a draw and gets a knife) But the procedure... well, it left me with a scar. (Shows the scar on his chest) Right there. And as I got older I wanted to learn about it so I would ask my parents (puts lighter flame to knife) and they said that they didn't remember the details. My dad would just say that him and my mom never gave up hope. "Never gave up hope," he would say. (Drops lighter) "Remember Jonas, never give up hope" and he would place his hand right here on my scar. Now, I keep thinking back to (picks up lighter) the last passage in my dad's journal and it said, "Within my son, hope resides." (Puts lighter flame to knife again) And this may be... a shot in the dark but if there's any hope left, I think it's in (points to scar) here. So...
(Jonas turns around and holds the knife up, suggesting that he is going to cut his scar open. The shot cuts to black. Cut to Jonas sitting in his library with a bloody bandage on his chest.)
Jonas: (Exhales, sniffs, and touches his chest) So, I know you guys think I'm probably crazy, right? Well guess what? (Holds up a tiny black device) I found some hope. Look at that. Huh? (Laughs) I don't know what's on this thing but whatever it is, it was important to my dad (sound of glass breaking). It's important to the Resistance.
Thug: (In the background) Check in the back! (Jonas panics and the Thug walks in) Hey!
Thug: Get down!
Thug: Get down! Get down! (Grabs Jonas and holds a gun to him)
Jonas: Woah! Okay, okay! Stop it! I'm down! I'm down! (The Thug hits him in the back of the head with the gun) Ahh!
(Jonas falls to the floor and starts coughing & groaning. The Thug holds the gun to his head. Lucy walks in and the Thug steps away from Jonas. Lucy tries to hold Jonas down but he resists. She finally gets a hold of him and searches his pocket. She boots him in the face and Jonas yelps in pain. Lucy walks out of the room and the Thug comes in, holding the gun to Jonas's head once again. He grabs Jonas's arm.)
Thug: Come on. (Drags Jonas out of the room. Jonas's body makes a squeaking noise as it is being dragged.)
(Fade to Daniel in front of Jonas's house)
Daniel: We arrived this morning to try and help, but... we didn't find Jonas. We only found his camera and that footage... we were too late.
- This is the first time Jonas has ever discussed the source of the scar on his chest.
- Right before the thug walks in, Jonas brings the hand with the tiny device to his mouth. It is possible that he hid the device in his mouth, swallowed it, or accidentally inhaled it (hence the coughing).
- Jonas is possibly referring to a condition known as the interrupted aortic arch. It is a very rare heart defect in which the aorta does not completely develop and requires open heart surgery soon after birth.
- This is the first time that Jonas has ever been kidnapped alone by the Order.
