So, what I’m thinking here, is that the Regent has some information about the missing boat captained by Captain Willie, so they need to impress the importance of finding Christa. We also want them to have some sort of information that Christa maybe on board the vessel. Perhaps they were spotted by another ship, or perhaps some video surveillance was looked at after the boat never made it’s appointed stop in New Orleans. Either way, they would suspect that something has happened to Captain Willie, so they need to raise the stakes more with Chaz and the importance of the mission. Chaz should be wavering a bit at the beginning of the scene I think. That’s likely where it should start. Then, likely it should be a representative of the Regent that shows up last time. Rabban was the character I had in mind in the earlier outline. Rabban is definitely evil, and he should imply some pretty drastic threats. Against Chaz or his family. Or, maybe even Christa. He could threaten to find Christa first, and if he does, there’s no question what he’ll do to her. Just about anything he wants, and thats before turning her over to the authorities. I don’t think this has to be a long scene. Location I’m a bit unsure of. There’s always the fort, or maybe, it takes place as he’s leaving the prison. Maybe his escort gets orders to bring him to someone else. That would work. So, we have Chaz driving away with escort. Chaz is just a passenger. He can be alone with his thoughts for a while, contemplating the discussion with Abby, then the car stops and picks someone up about an hour from the prison. That person would be Rabban. They drive together and have another little discussion.
