End Of Time - Part Six
Written by Bruce Stewart
Jean is watching horrified as the events in 1940 unfold in her
Simon is tormented by Graz and a struggle ensues. Frank grapples
with Graz as Liz and Simon head for the window to escape. Graz
fires at Frank then turns to Liz and shoots her at point blank
range in the stomach. Gottfried enters and Simon tells a shocked
Gottfried that Graz has killed her.
Gottfried helps Frank and Simon get Liz to a sofa. He is surprised
to discover that despite traces of blood, there is no wound.
Traynor and Skinner find the unconscious Jean by the concrete
posts. She awakens to scream out that Liz is dead.
Liz is still crying from the pain of the bullet wound and it takes
Simon to prove to her that there is nothing there. Frank is still
puzzled by the blood and the fact that there is no mark, let alone
a wound. Gottfried decides to move the prisoners to a more secure
Traynor and Skinner have taken a hysterical Jean back to the Inn.
There, Traynor tries to convince Jean and Skinner that Liz is
alright and that it is impossible for her to be killed in the
past. He also convinces Jean to use her link with Liz to find
out what is happening.
Frank, Simon and Liz are now imprisoned in the supply room. They
discuss their situation.
Back at the Inn, Jean tries to "see" what is happening
at the base and is delighted to discover that Liz is still alive.
She begins to "hear" Simon's solution to Frank's memory
loss involving "a beam of light" from the secret equipment
but looses contact.
In the bar, Traynor examines an old signalling lamp on a shelf.
Bradley enters and Traynor obliquely refers to Bradley's role
during the war. Traynor says he will be leaving the Inn shortly
before exiting the bar. Bradley furtively reaches for the hidden
gun and pockets it.
At the Naval base, Gottfried confronts Traynor with his theory
that he is experimenting with light. The Commander is still unhelpful
so Gottfried informs him that he'll have to take him with him
back to Germany.
Simon and Frank create a noisy disturbance in the supply room,
Jean sees this and tells Skinner.
Graz enters and attacks Frank. Simon hits him on the back of his
head with a coffee bottle and swipes his gun. Overwhelmed by the
activity, Frank slumps to the floor unconscious. Liz stops with
Frank whilst Simon returns to the Operations room and for the
second time that evening, hides under the sink. Fritz enters.
Bradley sneaks out of the Inn and Traynor, bypassing the Skinners,
follows him out. The landlord confronts Traynor with his gun.
It becomes apparent that Bradley was the Germans' ally in the
village in 1940. Traynor tells the traitorous Bradley to run adding
that nobody cares anymore...
Liz is tending to Frank's head with a wet handkerchief.
Gottfried tells Commander Traynor that he intends to take him
back to Germany and calls for Graz who is discovered unconscious
near Liz and Frank. While Gottfried is occupied, Simon passes
Graz' gun unseen to Traynor who is then escorted outside by Gottfried.
Simon rejoins Liz and Frank. In a moment of clarity, Frank is
finally able to reveal that he actually had the papers all along.
They were tucked down his tunic. He replaces them behind the skirting
Jean "sees" all this and reveals it to a delighted
Traynor and Skinner.
Outside the base, Traynor pulls the gun on Gottfried.
Frank is delirious again as Liz and Simon make plans to leave.
Gottfried dares the Commander to shoot him. But Traynor cannot
and Gottfried leaves.
Simon and Liz leave the delirious Frank in the supply room.
The two children make their way back to the hole in the perimeter
fence and pass through it. However, once through the time barrier,
they find themselves not back in 1970 but on a freezing ice field.
The two children collapse to the ground, overcome by the extreme
