19 DOWN BELOW

A temperature gauge rises.

The ice is infused with pulsating colors: purple -- blue -- green -- red. Starts to heat

up as if --

It soaks up temperature: from cold to hot in instants.

20 CLOSEUP - WHITE GLOVED HAND ON DIAL

"CUMULUS COLLECTOR." The graphs accelerate, but over the dull HUM -- a

MURMUR, a BREATH. As Emma's HEARTBEAT rises

The gloved hand turns up the dial, past a red danger mark.

Suddenly a BLIP. Something wrong.

Peter Peel's "coffin" starts to overheat. Peter reacts --

PETER:

(intercom cutting out)

Losing control -- malfunction

in thermal chamber -- for Christ's

22 IN CONTROL ROOM

Needles push off the dials, as --

The ice swells:
strange mix of colors, absorbing heat and energy in clusters of molten

Peter's glass cracks

The emergency light goes on -- the ALARM sounds -- lab assistants running ...

The "Koons" antenna is drawing a strange purple cloud towards it, from otherwise blue

Thru the air ducts the purple cloud starts to billow ... Panic stations! Valentine looks

aghast at the graphs: all systems fucked, over the intercom --

VALENTINE:

Emma, Peter, get out! It's going to explode!

FROM Valentine's anguished face TO Emma's face, as

VALENTINE:

Emma ...

27 FROM HER VAULT
