Ricky sees Karellen again and gets some devastating news.
Ricky's eyes snap open. Strange symbols flicker on his bedside clock. He leaves Ellie sprawled in sleep. As he crawls out of bed, his hand stings. Ricky shakes the pain away - just pins and needles.
Ricky finds his kitchen lights winking...microwave pinging. The foundation timbers groaning. With a creak, the back door swings steadily open. He steps out. He can see the large barn doors opposite opening on their own. - An invitation.
Don't you dare pull my house apart
Ricky crosses in excitement towards the barn.
Ricky enters. Mist and moonlight through the slats. Cloven hooves on the boards. Karellen steps out. Man and Overlord shake hands warmly. Emotional.
Early 21st century North American slang greeting. It's good to see you, Ricky.
Out on Karellen - a sad steady gaze.
Ellie wakes - Realises Ricky isn't beside her. Sees the digital clock - Strange symbols.
