JESS I'm a fugitive. The mark of Cain. MILES It's done. You can't undo it. JESS I didn't mean to kill him. He was a good man. I told him we could go back. Then someone started shooting. I don't know who. My windshield was shattered and Bea was down in the seat holding her face in her hands, with blood everywhere. I must have got a little crazy. I got my rifle from the back seat and I let go at anything that moved. All I could think of is getting her to a hospital. MILES So you want to disband Talion? How will that help? JESS There's no help for me. Maybe the kids? They have a lot of young men. We have to get them out. It's a disease, a plague. An infestation. MILES You're not making any sense.
