Matrix Reloaded-Revolutions
Shadow Script Part 2


TANK

"We're home."

TRINITY

"Well, not yet, but we're in the defense screen."

NEO

"What's that?"

MORPHEUS

"A concentric ring of defenses that shields Zion. The fighters that just saved us constitute the first ring."

NIOBE (V.O.)

"Neb crew, you can relax now."

MORPHEUS

"For the moment, perhaps. Its still a long drive home."

FADE OUT

and

FADE INTO:

TRINITY'S CABIN. At first we see only stars twinkling, faraway diamonds on a black velvet background. The camera descends through the darkness, to a sunset, dark blue, as if just after sunset. The artwork terminates in the metal ring going around her room. It's a much more hospitable place than the rest of the dreary hovercraft. The articles she's collected during her time in the resistance dot the cabin. An unfinished sweatshirt sits on a loom. There are charcoal portraits of loved ones.

Softly lit, the cabin sways slightly. The NEB is still in tow. NEO is sitting against the wall on Trin's bed, with her curled up beside him with her head on his lap.

Neo can't sleep. He stares at the wall opposite him. There's a photo of the crew of the NEB, sans Trin, in better days. Smiling, laughing as they are seated around the table. Morpeus, Tank, Dozer, Switch, Epoch, Mouse. Neo stops on the image of a smiling CYPHER. There's an unknown Asian man in the photo, looking withdrawn and a bit lonely.

Gently, placing Trinity's head down, NEO stands and examines the photo.

She awakens.

TRINITY

"I'll have to take that one down now. Cypher..."

NEO

"Who is this guy?"

TRINITY

"Who?"

NEO points to the mystery man.

TRINITY

"That was... I forgot his name."

NEO

"What happened to him?"

TRINITY is sullen.

"He didn't make it."

NEO returns to the bed and sits down, disturbed. Trinity sits up, awakening.

NEO

"Was he like me?"

TRINITY nods.

TRINITY

"Not you, though. Like you. There have been others, Neo."

"Aren't you tired?"

NEO

"No. I've never been a big sleeper."

TRINITY

"I know. I used to watch you hacking without sleeping for days."

He turns to her, questions in his eyes.

NEO

"How many 'ones' have there been?"

TRINITY

"That's not the point."

NEO may not think so.

TRINITY

"You are him. You're mine."

NEO

"But what does it mean, to be The One?"

TRINITY

"I don't know, Neo. Our mission was to find you."

NEO

"So, now what?"

TRINITY

"Now, Zion will give us a new mission."

The hatch swings open. MORPHEUS peers in.

MORPHEUS

"We're almost home. We'll need a detail. Five minutes."

HE closes the hatch and disappears.

NEO

"Does he ever knock?"

TRINITY

"Not on his ship."

CUT TO:

INT. MAIN DECK, NEB

The crew grips the bulkhead and fixtures as the swaying ship comes to a rest. Outside, the sounds of hover engines fade away. Tank unlocks the main hatch, then jumps as it drops, unpowered, slamming into the tarmac with a resounding smash.

CUT TO: EXT. ZION TARMAC

The tarmac is a busy, crowded military airport, with hovercraft of different sizes spread across the lot. Its housed poorly lit, houses in a cave so huge the ceiling is out of site. Crewpersons run around, servicing battle-damaged vehicles. Munitions are carted across the tarmac on robot rolling racks. No one pays the NEB and its battered crew any mind.

Nearby, the SEPHORA and FREEDOM are parked. Their engines shut down, and their powered hatches are open. The crewmembers are spilling out.

NIOBE hurries to MORPHEUS' side, and he steps toward her, smiling, but their military manner is quickly restored, though they can barely contain their grins.

MORPHEUS

"Niobe..."

SHE shakes his hand, the shake slows down.

"M."

MORPHEUS

"Thanks for the rescue."

THEY close for a kiss, when the FREEDOM'S captain suddenly jumps between them.

It's CHOI - the NEO's supposed neighbor and hacking financier. Exhuberant and oblivious, he joyfully gets in MORPHEUS' face.

CHOI

"Brough, you us your asses! We saved you so hard core you don't even know!"

NIOBE smiles at Morpheus and fades back as BOOTH shouts his own praises. Morpheus turns to his less-mature peer.

CHOI

"So, you think you finally found The One, huh? Another One?"

DUJOUR, CHOI'S LIEUTENANT, pushes into their conversation, looking offscreen.

DUJOUR

"Idiot, we helped him find him. Hello, Morpheus."

CHOI

"Huh?"
