I’m thinking, that this scene needs to start off with Alex and Chaz loading up for their mission. There could be some conversation, maybe some view of the gear they have. I’m thinking they’ll have some pretty nice resources at their disposal. Guns, gear, food, medical supplies. The extra pressure that’s added to Chaz at this point, is that he is now ordered to stop the renegades and Christa at all costs. Meaning if he can’t capture them, then he needs to kill them. And, that includes Christa. I’m thinking, that Rabban should be paying them a visit at this point. And, it should probably be just before they start to leave. The next time we see these two, they should be on the road or in some major conflict with the renegades. Of course, Alex is not going to take this information very well. Remember, that Alex thinks, that Christa is in his head, that she talks to him. No special connection, other than their existing relationship. What other pressure could be put on during this scene? Rabban is there, so we could do something more with him. Make him seem a bit more difficult than normal I suppose. What’s his agenda? We did have something special in mind for him. Like, he was on the short list for becoming the regent, but instead was selected for an advisory role. He wasn’t supposed to know about that, but ended up finding out. I don’t want to get too sidetracked with Rabban though. This is really a scene to move the plot along primarily. That doesn’t mean you can’t so some character reveal building sort of stuff with Rabban though. Maybe a little something about Alex. Maybe, you could drop some hints as to Christa still saying things inside his head. Maybe this connection, is not one that even Christa is too aware of. Maybe she kind of does it subconsciously. Which of course, won’t be revealed until later. But, it could come in handy for their hunt, where Alex could come up with some sort of hint … maybe even in this scene like Christa is worried, or things are going wrong. Like Alex is pretty quiet at first like he’s worried. You could build some sympathy for Christa here with the reveals from Alex, before Rabban comes in and let’s them know that they all have to be taken out. He should pull Chaz aside before telling him.
So, here now Chaz has made a decision that he will undertake the mission to look for Christa. I need to remember, that what Chaz will end up finding is not Christa, but the Andreas and Leekasha. So, maybe what should happen in this scene, is that it should be between Chaz and Alex. This is where they get back together and Chaz starts trying to help out Alex from where he’s been at such a lowpoint. Remember, Chaz can tell Alex about the murders. He should be able to talk about Christa though I think. There still needs to be some complications that come out of this. Sure, Alex will go with Chaz, I think that’s a given. But, there should be something wrong with Alex I think. Something that he reveals at the end. Like, maybe he’s heard voices too. Or maybe he’s losing his mind. Somewhat, like the dreams Chaz has been having where Patzy interrupted. But, it would have to be something different. Maybe Alex thinks it’s Christa
