Deirdre hears a noise and thinks it’s Suze (the woman she’s renting the house from) coming to check on her and the baby.
Suze, is that you? (Deirdre)
There’s no response. She picks up the phone on the table nearby, but there’s no dial tone, which causes her heart to race.
She remembers that her cell phone is charging in the living room. She considers grabbing her sleeping baby and running, but knows that waking her suddenly will cause her to cry, giving away their location in the house.
She decides to try to retrieve her phone, hoping that the noise she heard was nothing to worry about.
She peeks into the hall and then tiptoes toward the living room. When she turns the corner, she sees a sight that nearly makes her heart stop.
What the he!! are you doing here? How did you find me? Why have you come? (Deirdre, becoming hysterical)
Walter’s eyes travel to Deirdre’s mostly flat belly.
It’s alright. Calm down. I’m not going to hurt you. I know about our baby. (Walter, speaking slowly)
Whatever you think you know is wrong. (Deirdre)
Don’t lie to me. We promised never to lie to each other, remember? I admit that at first I was upset that you would keep this from me, but I’m not mad anymore. The entire time we were apart, I could feel something powerful drawing me back to you. Don’t you see? It was our baby willing us to be together. I’m here now, and we can be a… (Walter)
I got rid of it, so just leave me alone. (Deirdre)
Walter speaks to someone else in the room, startling Deirdre because she thought he was alone.
Go check it out. (Walter)
Walter grabs her as she struggles to go after Sean.
Sean returns holding Alyssa.
Get your filthy hands off her!! Give her to me! (Deirdre)
Sean hands the baby to Walter.
Walter, give her to me now. (Deirdre)
Walter, who seems overcome with emotion, ignores her request. Instead he turns away and whispers quietly to the baby.
Walter, listen to me. You should go ahead and leave while you can, before I call the cops. (Deirdre)
How are you going to call the police without a phone? By the time they get here, we’ll be long gone. There’s no proof of forced entry. It’ll be your word against mine. (Walter)
I’m begging you to please just leave us alone. (Deirdre)
I’m not leaving until I get what I want. (Walter)
What is it that you want? (Deirdre)
I want you and our baby to come with me. (Walter)
You can’t keep her from me. You have to know that. My blood runs through her veins. (Walter)
What are you saying? (Deirdre)
I’m saying we can do this the easy way…or the hard way. (Walter)
