INT. LANDING - POWELL’S HOUSE - SURREY - NIGHT 3

POWELL, in her pyjamas, exits her bedroom, crosses the

She decides against it.

8 INT. POWELL’S GARDEN OFFICE - SURREY - NIGHT 8

POWELL withdraws a secure dongle from a pocket in her gown

and plugs it into a USB port in a computer on a desk.

Jesse knows the routine: he has a basket in here too and he

lies down in it.

The office is full of military books, files, mementoes and

photographs:
her entire military career is in this room - and

we immediately understand that this is where she lives out

her life. The house is just where she sleeps.

While her computer boots up, POWELL glances at a large pin

board on a wall beside her desk:

It is covered in hand-written notes and SURVEILLANCE

PHOTOGRAPHS taken in various foreign locations of WANTED

HVI’s - High Value Individuals.

The faces are mostly Somali, but we also notice a young

British Muslim student named RASHEED HAMUD, and a young

American named MUHAMMAD ABDISALAAM. (Note: It does not matter

whether we know their nationality at this point, but their

dress is clearly western.)
