Right of Way 97

They walk a beat in silence, then Napolitano stops dead.

NAPOLITANO
Can you take me to that tunnel?

This time its Buddy who stops.

BUDDY
You keep me out of this?
NAPOLITANO
You have my word.

Buddy does not seem reassured by this. But after a beat, he nods and moves off with Napolitano in a new direction.

INT. THE ORDER COMPOUND VIDEO CONTROL BOOTH - NIGHT

Duvane monitors the goings-on around his compound grounds on various monitors with his aide Robert and the Technician we saw earlier. A phone RINGS, and the Technician answers in the b.g.

DUVANE
One fifty-year-old man and my army of initiates and so-called security agents cant stop him.
ROBERT
Weve looked everywhere, sir.
DUVANE
Well, he must be somewhere...
TECHNICIAN
Rachel Davis is calling for you, Prefect. She sounds un-centered.

Duvane takes the phone and undergoes a personality change. He seems sincerely focused on her well-being.

DUVANE
Rachel, so good to hear from you. How are you holding up?
RACHEL (V.O.)
I have to see you. You have to do something to help him.
