MAN:
Help me!

Somebody there?

I'm hurt.

Is somebody there?

Please.

I'm bleeding.

Help me.

Drop your weapon.

You drop yours first.

Drop it!

Okay.

Your turn.

Let me see your other hand.

If I move this hand,

I'm afraid my stomach will fall out.

I need to see your other hand.

What's in your hand?

Nothing.

Drop your weapon.

What's in your hand?

Oh.

CASSIE:
I miss the Cassie I was.

Ooh, I want the time of my life...

Hey.

A totally normal high school girl.

Hey! How you doing?

Hi! Good.

Cheers.

I wonder what that Cassie would think of me now.

The Cassie who kills.

You know, he was supposed to be here.

Who?

Oh.

Why are the hot ones always so unreliable?

What would I even say to him?

I don't know him, and he doesn't even know me.

You're a girl. He's a boy.

Your parts go together.

Don't.

Oh, God.

Okay, Liz.

What?

I'm gonna see you Monday.

Oh.

I gotta go home.

Skedaddle.

Okay.

Honey, love you.

I love you.

Bye.

Text me when you're home.

Okay.

And they're all gonna fall from the sky...

Hey.

Hey.

Umm...

Nice phone case.

What? You have something against pink?

No, no. I totally like it.

I'm just kidding.

Uh, this is actually my sister's phone.

I dropped her off at a sleepover,

and she took mine by mistake.

Mine's much cooler.

It's Spider-Man.

Polka dots.

Ah, that's her.

Hey.

Uh... Yeah, yeah, I have it.

No, I haven't looked at your text messages.

"Nice phone case"?

Right.

MAN:
I'm Captain Lochner.

This is Sergeant Nicolai.

WOMAN:
Hello.

How do you do

I'm sorry. No more coffee.

Miss Gray, do you know this gentleman?

Sing me a song.

A song?

Okay, close your eyes.

Bones sinking like stones

All that we fought for it...

CASSIE:
I didn't know it then,

but that was the last normal day of my life.

CASSIE:
When you're in high school,

just about everything feels

like the end of the world.

Can you believe what happened?

No.

An early curfew, a final exam...

Hey, Ben!

Stop it.

Soccer practice.

Sullivan. What are we doing out here?

Why not just tell her where

you're gonna kick it?

Come on, let's go.

Hey, check it out.

Look at this. It's so freaky.

Watch.

I can't see anything.

COACH:
Oh, my God, Altschuler.

That's it. You're done. Off the field.

No. But, look, it's really weird.

Off! Goodbye.

Adios.

MAN:
Panthers, let's go! Hustle up!

GIRL:
Give me your phone.

GIRL 2:
Mine doesn't work!

It totally just stopped.

All right, Perkins.

CASSIE:
Turns out

what we thought was the end of the world,

Wasn't.

What, did someone famous die or something?

It appears to be metallic

and of a considerable size.

Across the world, social media has been

awash with panic and speculation

as these images spread like wildfire.

MAN:
The president has authorized NASA

to attempt communication with the object

that is now circling our planet

and is currently over the United States,

moving west over Ohio.

CASSIE:
Oh, my God.It's right over us.

I wanna see!

No, Sam. Wait.

Sam, wait!

MAN 1:
You can see it!

MAN 2:
Come here!

MAN 3:
Look up there, hon.

WOMAN:
Wait, what is that?

MAN:
I have no idea.

CASSIE:
There were no messages from

our galactic party crashers

during the first 10 days.

But pretty soon, they had a name.

We called them "The Others."

CASSIE:
The Wilsons are leaving, too?

They say they don't feel

safe so close to the city.

Okay.

Is this everyone?

Well, okay.

Everybody look at

the equation on the board.

Who can give me the derivative of X?

Anybody?

Anyone?

What...

MS. PAULSON:
I'm sure this

is just a power outage.

GIRL:
My phone's not working.
