PRASAD:

Can’t have all this noise.

LINDSAY:

(Beats.)

Okay.

She reaches again but he still holds it away.

PRASAD:

We tie you and gag you. Lot less

painful if you cooperate.

Lindsay nods. He gives her the water. She drinks. He takes

back the bottle and Cole starts to tie her hands behind her

back.

LINDSAY:

I need to urinate.

PRASAD:

(Shrugs.)

Not our car. Knock yourself out.

Before she can protest, Cole gags her.

COLE:

Shut up and get back in.

503 EXT. SCENE OF PRISON VEHICLE AMBUSH. LATER THAT EVENING.

Kate pulls up in her car short of the cordon screening off

the overturned prison vehicle, the trapped ambush vehicle

plus patrol cars, a fire engine and an ambulance with blue

lights flashing.

A couple of uniforms are taking a statement from the motorist

whose vehicle got commandeered. We don’t need to hear the

dialogue but they’re confirming details we’ve already seen --

“Two men in motorcycle suits and helmets got out of their big

black 4WD and then forced me out of my car and drove away in

it.”

Kate shows ID and advances through the cordon, joining up

with Steve and Hastings.

ambush. Denton made her escape.
