The Wrong End Of Time - Part Six

Written by Bruce Stewart

Jean is watching horrified as the events in 1940 unfold in her mind's eye.
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.
Jean faints.

 

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 place.
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 board.

 

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 cold...
