In the way I knew how this was going to end. They said in a rumor that someone "in a clever way" will show signs of being the new baddie for season 3b...and look who it is. Peter Hale, why I'm not surprised. I knew he had to go back to being bad. Other points in "Lunar Eclipse", it's funny they misspelled eclipse if you seen the tweet hash tags there was one where it says #LunarEllipse. I don't know if it was supposed to be that way, but I think that was a funny typo.
I loved the flashbacks to season 1 where we saw how different Scott, Stiles, and Allison were from s1 to now. Awesmome to see that Scott is finally a Alpha, but now he has to deal with his father's return, Peter's comeback, and potential new supernatural threats. I can't wait until Jan. 6th when the next half begins.
Sylvia and Mason Blackvale are trying to live their lives in Vesper Cove alongside their mother, Tia Gates-Blackvale. Just as if they can enjoy life, they will soon learn secrets about their family history that could tear Vesper Cove apart. When Sylvia is about to turn sixteen, she receives a mysterious gift from her and Mason’s father, Reese. However, their father disappeared over ten years ago. Wondering the gift is their one physical evidence that their father is still alive, Sylvia, Mason, and their mother uncover the gift is a picture of the Blackvale crest and a note written by Reese. In the note they discover Reese needs to be found and that are greater dark forces at play, yet in order to find him they need to reverse the Witchfall that stricken the Blackvale coven.
Desperate to search for answers, Sylvia and Mason are met by the local bookstore owner, Desmond Krieg, who gives them clues of what they seek. Together, the Blackvale siblings learn that Witchfall is a forbidden curse to befall on a coven of witches. Stunned, Sylvia and Mason deduct that they are witches and that their father was a powerful warlock until the curse changed everything. To find their father, they first must reverse the Witchfall. Krieg informs the siblings that in order to reverse the curse they must either convince or kill the Order of the Seven—a group of seven witches and warlocks that cast the Witchfall spell on the Blackvale coven. However, things take a turn when Sylvia and Mason uncover their newfound mentor; Krieg is actually a witch hunter. To reverse the curse to restore their powers and family legacy, the siblings must train like witch hunters to destroy the Order any way they can if they have a chance to save their missing father.
However while Sylvia and Mason does their best to reverse the Witchfall spell, their personal lives with certain relationships get tested.

And as for the other dark forces, they will do whatever they can to protect the people they care about as the serene town of Vesper Cove will be rocked like never before.

This was an idea I have been floating around for the past year and had to find some sort of grounding. I needed to focus a series on a central female protagonist I’m a huge supernatural fan and most of the inspiration came from Charmed, Buffy, and Supernatural. I really wanted to focus an idea on this concept that what if these young witch siblings has lost their power and their family magic; and the only way they can restore their powers and break the curse is to be trained by witch hunter.
Am I the only one that thought STILES was the one in the ice tub?! I don't know if my mind was just playing tricks on me or what, haha.
I saw that too. The first time I saw it I was like WTF...was that Stiles. And then when I get to see the second time, it was Stiles. Allison holding him in the tub. With Scott with Decalion, I wonder how Stiles got those "yellow eyes"? Or is that Issac? I'm confused on that part.
As for "THE OVERLOOKED"
-Anytime there's a storm used as plot device, there's trouble brewing for the main characters. -Poor Derek, he lost that teen girl he loved when he was young back in Visionary and now this girl (Jennifer) is literally a monster. -Speaking of Jennifer, that girl is a freak. She knew how to tweak Derek's emotions and as well Stiles'. And now seeing it's because of Kali, that Jennifer or whatever her name wants to get rid of the Alphas. -You go MamaMcCall! She gave the Alpha twin beast a shock to their system. -Scott and Peter teaming up. I never thought that happened, and then it happened. -Allison, Issac, and Chris helping along the way. I like how Allison conceived a plan to use herself as bait knowing she sort of looks like Jennifer. The Alphas got confused and took the bait. -Once again the slippery Darach/Jennifer escapes alongside kidnapping Melissa. -Nice to see how Stiles figured out Guardian is actually the parents. Scott figured out but it was too late. -Now Scott has to work with Decalion to rescue Melissa and the Sheriff from the Darach. -This whole episode's meaning is literally "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"
Yeah, I have to agree with Jason and say I really love this pitch! I've always been a sucker for spy shows, even know I've really only seen one. XD They just seem so interesting to me, and I can't wait to see how this develops!
Oh thanks Brady! I truly understand that; spy shows intrigue me too. I really do see this potential VS as a mix up between the hardiness of the Sopranos meets the craziness of Leverage.
The McVoys have been a name every known criminal has to be aware of it since they have been the most successful family in the world of thievery; known for their knowledge, skills, and slithery escapes from the law. Now, the McVoys are trying to do one thing that they never even attempt---live a normal family life. However, the McVoys are anything but normal. Simon McVoy is the oldest son of three, Bryan McVoy is the youngest, and Robert, the middle brother who died a year ago. They all learned the secrets of the trade from their father, Jack McVoy, and their grandfather, Alistair McVoy; suddenly after Robbie's death, their free-happy ride to do what they want went down the drain and now they are trying to adjust in living the simple life. The keyword is trying.
However, things don't go as planned as they figure out living normalcy isn't part of their formula. Including the brothers, Simon's ex-wife, who resisted earlier, but now, is a hard-nosed sarcastic jerk to the men. Everyone might get back to where they are known for when an interesting proposal from the mysterious "Kren" offers the McVoys a chance to redeem themselves and return to the world of thievery. Now, the family is torn-- will they return to the world where they are known as the Royalty of Crime or can they try to be normal as everyone else. And for this family, normal isn't something to steal.
Simon McVoy (Justin Chambers) He is the oldest of the McVoy brothers, and a very conservative thief. He like his brothers learned everything from their father and grandfather. A year after his brother's death, losing Robbie drastically changed Simon's perception of the world. He believed til this day he was the cause of his brother's death while others quickly try to deny that factor; and what else is that he divorced his wife, Jess. Now trying to live a "normal" life, Simon and his family might be thrown back to the world they chose to leave after an interesting proposal might put him back on the police radar.
Jess Lawson (Jessalyn Gilsig) Jess used to be a registered nurse at Chicago Hope, and that's where she first met Simon. Months later they got married and wanted to start a family; however, Jess was suspicious of her husband's actions. She later discovered the truth behind the McVoys and that they are a family of well-planned thieves. A year later, one of her brother-in-laws mysteriously died doing what he does best and hearing from Simon that he caused his brother's death. Their so-called blissful life soon crashed down after she files for divorce. Before she was soft and sweet kind, but after being part of the McVoy family and her deteriorating marriage, she is now a hard-nosed sarcastic jerk if people mess with her including her ex-husband.
Bryan McVoy (Dustin Milligan) The youngest brother of the McVoy sons; he is currently in his senior year of high school and plans not to go to college, but Jack, his father, wants him to go to college since no one in the family even completed college and most of them dropout due to their antics of stealing high-price items. He is aware of many things of life, but really never had a big mission for him seeing how his other brothers had their moments. He is desperate to find some moment if they return to the world they know; and when there is an opportunity, he is the first to try to convince his family it's time to go back.
Jack McVoy (Robert Knepper) Known as a expert thief, Jack knows the ins and outs; trained by his father, Alistair, Jack uses his skills and trains his sons the tricks of the trade. As other criminals are calling them the "royalty of crime", Jack feels they need to attempt to do something they never did before; live a normal life. However, the death of one of his sons may have been a catalyst because a year later the McVoys are now trying to live a "Plesanstview"-like atmosphere. Feeling that being a thief is not his thing anymore; he wants to retire and become a criminologist. However, a mysterious contact known as Kren tries to convince him and his family that it's time to come back and do what they do best.
Alistair McVoy (James Cromwell) The patriarch of the McVoys and in the Criminal underworld he is known as the "Grandfather of thieves". Alistair is truly a mastermind and his son Jack is close to becoming a true mastermind himself. Yet, Alistair retired years ago but still provides a huge asset and sort of guide for his family. Learning that one of his grandsons, Robbie, had died a year ago has set them to semi-retire from their job. While Jack, Simon, and the others just want to live a normal life and try to forget their loss whatever they can, Alistair is disgusted because of the decision, but still tries to be there for them; suddenly his old feeling that they could come back might come true after hearing a man known as Kren is giving them an invitation to return.
Kren (Robert Wisdom) A mystery man who likes to hide in the shadows; he has watched the McVoys for a long time and after seeing them trying to live life of normalcy; he tries to bring them back to the world of thievery. His true motives are unknown and he could be a huge ally in the long run or a future threat for the family.
Nina Danvers (Jessica Lucas) Nina is Jess's best friend and is always there for her during her time of separation from Simon. Nina used to date Robbie, but felt if they were just as friends than lovers. She gets totally upset after learning about his death, but does find solace with her three year old daughter, Rose. However, isn't sure Rose is Robbie's daughter.
Det. Alex Frost (Jeffrey Nordling) He has been a Robbery and Homicide detective for 18 years; he has been trailing and fail to capture the McVoys for nearly two decades. His promotion to a higher position in the force rest on the capture of one or many of the McVoys, but with them hidden in the radar Frost will try at nothing to stop them even if they want to live a normal life. However, he knows that leaving their job is just a matter of time for them to return and he knows for certain he's ready.

1.10 "TBA" (season finale)
This is a idea I came off after I watched some old Alias episodes and Leverage. I really like this idea a lot and its fun trying to see how a family of thieves work together and try to live a normal life, but can't resist going back to what they are do best...being thieves. It may look finished, but actually this idea is still undeveloped. I'm not officially putting this in the VSP thread yet. I have another idea I'm working on as well a couple of movie ideas I still need to kink out before anything is concrete. So have at it. Please let me know what you think about this and whatever changes I need to make so when that day comes to officially post this in the VSP thread I can really go forward with the pilot.
Looks interesting. I have skimmed through the books, but haven't fully indulged my entire reading time in reading every page. Got to say I agree with Chris, the trailer is the most interesting part I can't wait. I just hope they do it justice and not destroyed the author's vision.
The episode was interesting. I don't know yet if it was a good way or bad way. Now we get to see a partial look of the mysterious killer. I just wondered if there's going to be a Alpha alliance to stop this creature.
"Frayed" was really interesting. In a pace point of view, I feel it lacked urgency. I felt they should have the Derek and Ennis fall to open up the credits. But overall, the episode was very intriguing with Scott and Decalaion finally meeting face to face again, Scott's eyes turn red, and the whole fight scene.
If it was just me, I notice when they reaired the episode, the beginning of the opening credits has Scott's eyes red, but before it turned yellow and all the way to the end. But the beginning of the opening credits showing Scott's red eyes during the reairing was very intriguing.
I agree with what you said Chris. "Chaos Uprising" and "Unleashed" are clearly the season's best episodes as of now. I'm really starting to like Issac. He was a knockout character last season, and this season he is starting to grow on me as a fan favorite.
This looks very interesting. I like Faith. She was one of those characters I really wanted to see a real spin-off from Buffy at least when both Buffy and Angel went off. Any way, good pitch. I can't wait to read the pilot.
*Int. Wayne Manor – Study (Cuts to Wayne Manor then to the study as we see Bruce reading a book; then the camera shifts to Leo entering)
Leo: Hey sorry about entering in without Alfred knowing.
Bruce: It’s okay because he sleeping. I would do that to if I was you.
Leo: Guess what I found. (Showing Bruce files about people having flashbacks) I found research that flashbacks are almost 85% that gives you clearly info to your past. As for relating to your future, there are those that give you a glimpse of the future more like a premonition.
Bruce: So you saying my flashbacks are giving me clues to my future.
Leo: The way I read it; it seems like you are reliving the final moments of what your parents. It’s sort of bridging a large gap that you lost and you wanted to know what really happened.
Bruce: I…I… (Suddenly he closes his eyes)
Leo: Bruce… Bruce!!
(We see Bruce’s eyes closed as we are brought into another flashback)
*Int. Wayne Manor – Study (Flashback: 1998) (Flashes into another flashback as we see the same setting, the manor and inside the study we see the seven-year-old Bruce playing with his Shadow Crusader action figure and Warrior Angel action figure, then we notice Martha walking in looking at her son, but then gets startle when he asks her something)
Bruce (7 yrs. old): Mom, when are we going to see that play at the opera house?
Martha: At 8 sweetie.
Bruce (7 yrs. old): Can I bring my figures?
Martha: We’re going to a very high social place and bringing (picking one of the figures) one of these isn’t social, my dear.
Bruce (7 yrs. old): So don’t bring them.
Martha: If you want that kind of answer, yes, no figures. (Smiling) Okay?
Bruce: Okay. Where’s dad?
Martha: Actually, I …. (Then hears a loud thump) What was that? (Seeing what was that) Bruce stay here!
(As she heads out to find the noise, Bruce listened very well and stayed where he’s at)
*Int. Foyer (Still in the flashback, we see an unknown man gets thrown on the floor as we also see Thomas Wayne grabbing by the collar of the thug’s jacket and pushed against the wall)
Thomas: Now listen, you freak, you and your other pals have crossed me way enough. First, you want to threaten my family and now you want come into my house. What’s your name?
Thug: Ta… Tak…
Thomas: Well Tak, you can tell your boss Sczoneri, if he or his goons ever touched my family again…I will make sure you scum will be out of Gotham in a matter of days.
(Martha walks out of the study to see her husband threaten another man)
Martha: Thomas? What are you doing?
Thomas: Taking care of business.
Martha: Bruce is in the other room…you are better than this!
Thomas: Not now Martha.
Martha: No Thomas now.
Thomas: (Thinking about what he is doing; he then let Tak go and tells him to get out) Get out or I will kick you out.
Tak: All I wanted to know are you going to accept my boss’s deal.
Thomas: I don’t take deals from mob bosses, and tell your boss to screw himself.
Tak: (Getting serious) I tried the normal way, but never cross my boss.
Thomas: Do you think I’m scared?
Tak: (Showing a smirk look, he then leaves)
Martha: (Seeing him gone) I thought Victor would take care of Sczoneri.
Thomas: Why would Victor be a part of this?
Martha: Because I called him before I told you.
Martha: Thomas, please listen, I know you and him have your differences, but I’m still friends with him and he have connections. Thomas: I know you tried to help, but Victor is not an angel. He cannot be trusted no matter what.
Martha: Thomas, I’m sorry, but what can we do?
Thomas: (Holding her hands) Do nothing and don’t worry about it; I want to do a family outing to get this trauma away from us.
Bruce (7 yrs. old): Dad, mom, when are going to see that play?
(Thomas and Martha look at him then look back at each other)
Thomas: Let’s do it.
Bruce (7 yrs. old): (Jumping up and down so happy) Yeah!
Thomas: See everything is going to be alright.

Martha: Are you sure it’s safe?
Thomas: My father showed me this way after I went to a lot of plays; see Bruce, this could be your shortcut one day.
Bruce (7 yrs. Old): I guess so.
Thomas: (Smiling then noticing something far away) Hey….
(Martha and Bruce stopped as well)
Martha: Thomas what’s wrong?
Bruce (7 yrs. old): Dad?
Thomas: Not now. (Hearing it again; getting angry) Alright, I’m not going to say this again who are you? Show yourself!
(The camera shifts to a shadowy figure as we cannot see his face)
Shadowy Figure: (Showing a gun as the camera views it)
Thomas: Hey, hey! We can talk; here want my wallet. Just leave us alone.
Shadowy Figure: (Doesn’t talk, but all of the sudden he fires the gun)
(The camera views Thomas getting shot almost three times—two at his chest, and the third at his waist)

Shadowy Figure: (Fires the gun again)
(The camera views Martha getting hit this time three times as well, one at her waist and two at her chest; when she falls to her death her necklace was somehow ripped away from her neck and hits the ground as herself falls down)

Leo: Bruce? Bruce: (Crying) I saw them…I actually saw them died.
Leo: Are you okay?
Bruce: I…I don’t know, but these flashbacks gave me a reason and that’s to find the killer.
Leo: In one of those past occurrences, you saw him.
Bruce: Barely, but I do have a huge clue.
Leo: You mentioned old Mr. Scrooge himself, Victor Powers.
Bruce: (Wiping off his tears) Actually, his name is Sczoneri.
Leo: It’s a start?!
Bruce: I’m going to find that killer one way or another; and I’m starting with him.
(Shifts to Leo a little bit confused, and then back to Bruce determined to get answers)
*Ext. Gotham City (Present Day) (Cuts to the city as we see the storm heading down Wayne Industries)
*Ext. Wayne Industries – Lab Sector D (Cuts to the building where the Phoenix is being hailed as we then sees the storm approaching and out of nowhere, a lighting strike appears and hits the building blowing half of the section apart. Unbeknownst, the explosion also causes a chemical explosion as the Phoenix compound is integrated in the air; the storm winds also give the particles more velocity to affect more of the air waves)
*Ext. Gotham City (Cuts back to the city as the chemical particles are absorbed into the air surrounding the city with its poison telling us something terrible is going to happen)
(Fades out) [Act IV end]
*Ext. Wayne Industries – Lab Sector D (Next Day) (Cuts back to Wayne Industries as the storm disappears and we see what was left of Lab Sector D; police is swarming everywhere and we then see Commissioner Woods and Det. Alder discussing while walking as we see officers passing by)
Det. Alder: This whole place is disaster.
Comm. Woods: I just sent a call from the DEA, FBI, FDA, NDIC, and other three letter organization you can think of.
Det. Alder: What cause this?
Comm. Woods: You will never believe what I am going to said, but that storm last night caused a lighting strike to make that explosion you see before you. The only tragedy to this catastrophe is this rarely chemical PX-52TD (Showing Megan the name of the chemical) It’s otherwise known as Phoenix.
Det. Alder: (Reading the file) It’s unstable, this thing is dangerous. What happened to it?
Comm. Woods: How it’s a mystery, but….
(A DEA official appears telling the commissioner something)
Comm. Woods: You found something.
DEA official: I did and you won’t like it.
Det. Alder: What’s the matter?
DEA official: We found the chemical; it’s here.
Comm. Woods: Excellent we can seal the chemical in a higher lock up position.
DEA official: You don’t understand. The chemical is here, but it’s everywhere.
Comm. Woods: Excuse me?
DEA official: The chemical is in the air. And what’s worse, we found its basic structure and it can be inhaled.
Det. Alder: Oh my…!
Comm. Woods: This is trouble.
(We leave Commissioner Woods and Det. Alder baffled as they now realize the explosion has caused the chemical to be absorbed by the air and also now we know something more terrible…it’s inhalable; we then cuts)
*Ext. Gotham Cemetery (Cuts to the cemetery as we hear the beat of One Republic’s “Apologize” playing in the background; then shifts to one tombstone as we see it has “Waynes then Thomas on one side and Martha on the other and a epitaph at the bottom of the stone: Here lies the heart of Gotham City. The Camera shifts to see Bruce, wearing a black overcoat, standing in front it solemnly as we continue to hear the beat of “Apologize”; the camera then shifts to Alfred standing right next to Bruce)
(As they begin to talk we begin hearing the lyrics of the song)
Alfred: Sir, are you ready to leave.
Bruce: Not now, Alfred. I want to continue to give my respect.
Alfred: Master Bruce, if there is one thing Master Thomas would say is that he will be proud of you and your mother loves you dearly.
Bruce: Thanks for your support, Alfred. You are always there when I need you…sorry about what I did the past two days.
Alfred: Master Bruce, don’t worry about. I don’t need any apologies; taking care of you and having your back is enough repentance enough.
Alfred: I’ll be waiting in the car.
(We see Alfred walking off screen as we stay by Bruce continuing to look down at his parents’ grave)
(Cuts to another area as Alfred is walking to the car he is stop by Julie as the song continues)
Alfred: Good morning, Ms. Madison.
Julie: Hello Alfred, where’s Bruce?
Alfred: Where he normally goes on a Saturday…
Julie: I’ll notice…tell Bruce I said hi.
Alfred: Actually, I’m heading back to the car; you can say hi to him yourself. He needs company after what happened these past two days. (Walking off) See you again, Ms. Madison.
Julie: You too… (She walks towards Bruce)
(The song hits to the center as we hearing more of the lyrics and then we see Bruce joined by Julie)
Julie: You’re okay?
Bruce: Yeah, it just that I was young when my parents died and would have done something if I had the chance.
Julie: Do not blame yourself for what happened to them. They died because they protected you; this isn’t your fault.
Bruce: (Understanding) Well I know this isn’t fault, but since I was seven once my parents died, I admitted myself that I had a part of my parent’s death.
Julie: Listen, there is someone responsible for this and he will pay justice.
Bruce: One day, I will find the one who did this; my parents’ death will be avenged.
Julie: I want to know too, but right now you need to move on…
Bruce: I won’t move on until the one who done this gets the justice he deserves.
Julie: Well, let me be your solace.
Bruce: (Listening to her very well)
Julie: Leo mentioned these flashbacks you been having about your parents.
Bruce: And you knew I was here cause…
Julie: I know you Bruce Wayne.
Bruce: I like that.
Julie: And speaking about those flashbacks, maybe they are showing you not only what happened in the past, but I think they are giving you a sign for your future.
Bruce: Let me guess be a businessman.
Julie: Maybe a hero. This city needs a hero.
Bruce: Well until that hero comes, I guess this is just half to do.
Julie: I knew that Bruce I knew is back. Give it time, Bruce, your parents should be proud of you; Alfred should be proud of you; I’m proud of you. (Smiling) I have to go now my dad is going to be irate without me being home, so see ya. (Walks off)
Bruce: See you.
(The song is almost ending)
(Julie waves bye and walks off as the camera shifts to Bruce’s face)
(We shift to Bruce continuing to view his parent’s tombstone and he then drops a rose on the ground lying on the tombstone as the song is ending)
Bruce: I miss you. (He then smile a little knowing he has some solace then turns around walks off)
(The camera zooms out to view Bruce walking to the car, his parents’ tombstone along with other tombstones ,and Alfred waiting by the car as the song, “Apologize”, ends and the camera fades out) [Act V ends]
