(Jonas is standing outside of the Hymn of One London Centre. He turns the camera on himself as he looks at the building.)
Jonas: So this is it, huh? The UK branch of the Hymn. Creepy.
(Cut to Steve coming out of the building, talking to someone inside.)
Steve: Alright. Alright, I'm outside now. Technically this is public property so I'll stand here all I like, okay? Yeah, go back inside. (Sighs and walks over to Jonas.)
Jonas: Hey. I guess your little buddies aren't too keen on you since you handed in your membership card, huh?
Steve: Heh. No. They don't particularly like it when I'm snooping around for information on one of their high-ranking Elders.
Jonas: Yeah. I'm surprised they didn't kick your ass.
Steve: Who says they didn't try? (Steve mimicks karate for the camera and he and Jonas laugh.) Anyway, uh, I might not have found out where he lives, but I did find out where he works.
Jonas: Wow, really?
Steve: Yeah. In the city.
Jonas: Whoah, wait; aren't we in the city? Right now?
Steve: Uh, yeah, technically. But the real city, the financial district, it's not too far from here. Come on.
(Jonas follows Steve down the street. Steve looks disappointedly at the Hymn of One Centre. Cut to them riding the subway. Steve films the train as everyone stares at the camera. He pans to Jonas, who is reading Metro paper.)
Steve: And here we are, settled into the London life already! Look at him! On the tube, reading the paper. Not making eye contact with anyone else.
(Jonas looks annoyed at Steve and hides his head behind the paper. Steve laughs. Cut to Jonas and Steve riding the escalator out of the station. Cut to Jonas leading the way in the financial district.)
Jonas: This is it? This is the city?
Steve: This is some of it, yeah.
Jonas: (Looks around.) It's quiet.
Jonas: It's kind of eerie.
Steve: It gets worse at night.
(Cut to Jonas walking across a plaza. Cut to Steve filming a high-rise from ground level. Cut to Jonas running past a blonde woman down a flight of stairs. Cut to a shot of their destination. Cut to Jonas walking under a walkway.)
Steve: Jonas? This is it, man.
Jonas: Alright. Here we go.
(Jonas enters the building, followed by Steve. They walk to the reception desk.)
Jonas: We're supposed to have a meeting with Lord Carruthers today, but we're not sure what floor he's on. Just wondering if you could possibly help us out?
Receptionist: I can't- Lord Carruthers isn't actually in the office today, I'm afraid.
Jonas: Oh, uh, really?
Receptionist: Yes, really. And, um, of you wouldn't mind not filming in here, that'd be great.
Jonas: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Of course.
(A security guard appears from down a hallway.)
Security guard: Come on, gents. (Pushes the camera down.)
Security guard: Out you go. No filming.
Steve: Okay. Alright.
Security guard: Come on.
Steve: Dude, just calm down, okay?
Jonas: We're out, alright?
Security guard: Right now.
(Cut to Steve following Jonas out to the street.)
Jonas: Well, that wasn't much of a plan. This is useless, man! What're we d- What're we doing here?
Steve: Alright, just relax. I've just had another idea of how we're gonna get to him.
(Cut to Jonas walking down a street at night. He looks nervously back at Steve.)
Jonas: What is this, Steve? What're we doing here?
Steve: You'll see.
Jonas: Look, I don't see why the hell you can't just tell me what's going on.
Steve: It's a surprise, okay?
Jonas: Alright, I don't know what you're trying to pull, but I actually came here to find this Carruthers-...
(Steve pans the camera to find Rupert Van Helden locking a gate.)
Steve: Oh, look who it is! Thought I'd find you here.
Jonas: Is that-?
Steve: Yep. Rupert Van Helden. They Hymn's youth movement leader and the biggest hypocrite I've ever met.
Rupert: What're you doing here, Steve?
Steve: Actually, I was wondering if you could help us.
Rupert: Right. Well, the Hymn is always there for you.
Steve: Yeah, no. (Stops Rupert from walking away.) Not that kind of help.
Rupert: What the hell do you think you're doing?
Steve: Oh! Language! You gotta be careful of that in front of the flock, Rupert. (Pushes Rupert against the wall.) We want to know about Lord Carruthers.
Jonas: The Elder who killed my friend Bree.
Rupert: (Laughs.) Oh, please. That is ridiculous. What're you talking about?
Julia: Steve! What's going on?
Steve: Stay out of this, Julia, okay? Your Hymn of One chum, Lord Carruthers? He's been getting up to mischief in America, Rupert. He killed a girl.
Rupert: (Laughs.) Please! What else are you guys gonna come up with next?
Steve: I'm serious! We want to know where he lives.
Rupert: You know, even if I knew that, Steve, I wouldn't tell you. Okay? So can we sit down and talk about this like adults? I wanted to contact you, actually. I wanted to say that there was no hard feelings after The Day of the Eternal Song.
Steve: Oh, shutup! You-your brainwashing won't work on me anymore!
Steve: Come on, let's get out of here. (Jonas looks confusedly between Steve and Rupert.) This is a joke; it's a total waste of time.
(Rupert and Julia wave goodbye as Jonas and Steve walk away. Cut to them walking down another road.)
Jonas: Steve! Steve!
Steve: (Turns around.) What?
Jonas: What the hell was that?
Jonas: Seemed like the guy wanted to talk. You know, you go all guns-blazing, rough him up, now we're back to square one.
Steve: Look, trust me, okay? You let a guy like that talk on his own terms, he just ends up going on and on and on! And you end up hearing his boring drivel over and over again, you actually start believing what he has to say!
Jonas: Yeah, well, now we've got nothing. You know? What are we gonna do now? Whoah, what is this? (Steve pans to a car rounding the corner.) Why does that guy not have his lights on?
Steve: Whoah, whoah-!
Jonas: What is that?
(Steve and Jonas run behind a gate and hit the ground as gunshots are fired from the car.)
Steve: Get down!
Jonas: Oh, Jesus!
Steve: Oh my god! (Films the car as it turns another corner.)
Jonas: Yo, what the hell was that? You alright?
Steve: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Jonas: What the hell was that?
Steve: I don't know, man! Oh, I think I know a man who does! (Looks down the street.) Rupert! He's ordered a hit on us!
Jonas: A hit?
Jonas: A hit? What are we, in the mafia now?
Steve: Alright, yeah. You just stay here and make jokes. I'm gonna go confront Rupert and find out what the hell is going on!
Jonas: What, are you kidding me? If Rupert had anything to do with that, you really think it's a good idea to go back to his place? Come on, man, think!
Steve: God, you're right. Oh, god! Oh, let's get out of here! Oh, g- Okay, let's go. Go.
Jonas: Come on!
