On the wall: CIVIC AWARDS and PHOTOS of Bollinger with various politicians...
Bollinger is behind his desk. He’s a hard guy. Mid 40’s. He’s sipping whiskey… and holding the KEY that once belonged to Zach Ellinghouse.
He’s talking to a WOMAN who we DON’T SEE YET.
This storage place. What time’s it
WOMAN (off screen)
I’m going to need you to come with
We now reveal: the woman he’s talking to is- Trudy Monk! At least it’s the actress who’s been playing Trudy. Her real name is Cameron Moore. She’s nervous. And guilt-ridden.
You have the key. You said once you
had the key, I was done.

Cameron removes the BLOND “TRUDY” WIG she’s wearing.

OLD CLOTHES, OLD FURNITURE, etc.
Jim Bollinger is there, frantically tearing open cartons.
He’s found a box of OLD CASSETTE TAPES.
Mr. Bollinger? Can I go now?
