(The scene opens up in Star’s office with Star and Alexis having a little… chat.)
Star Stormz: Alexis… you know you HAVE to upkeep your therapy appointments… Dr Fisher said you haven’t shown up for your last 3. Whats going on?
Alexis Makarios: I don’t want to talk to him.
Star Stormz: Does this have anything to do with last week when you insisted on a female referee?
(Alexis tried to ignore the question by shrugging it off.)
Star Stormz: Look, I know things are rough for you right now with who to trust. Your long time friend David has gone off the deep end and is acting like a major jackass. Your former teammate Corey has been doing ungodly crazy things. It’s only natural to have a distrust…
Alexis Makarios: When did you get a psych degree?
Star Stormz: What I’m trying to say is I get it, ok? I think I have a solution. I will have Dr Fisher transfer your files and why don’t you call her and make an appointment.
(Star hands Alexis a business card. She looks over it, confused.)
Alexis Makarios: Who is Diana Everheart?
Star Stormz: A brilliant psychologist we brought in recently to help with psych evaluations and the like. She’s really kind and very bright. I think you’ll like her.
Alexis Makarios: And what if I don’t call her and make an appointment?
Star Stormz: Let’s just say that unless SHE clears you for competition… you WON’T be stepping in the ring at Crusade
(Alexis grumbles a bit as she takes the card and starts to leave the room, muttering something under her breath as the scene fades)
(The scene opens up inside the hotel that the PWS roster was staying at in Paris. It was a beautiful hall filled with flowers and artwork on the walls. Alexis had walked up to a door and knocked. When the door opened she was face to face with Dan Russow. She let out a slight gasp before taking a step back, looking really on guard. Dan looked a little confused.)
Dan Russow: Alexis?
Alexis Makarios: Hey, I wanted to talk to Audrey about our match this week. Is… is she here?
Dan Russow: She is, but she and Aurora are taking a nap right now. Aurora had a headache so they cuddled and both passed out about 15 minutes ago. I can have her call you when she gets up?
Alexis Makarios: Uh… sure, thanks.
(Alexis turns to leave when Dan calls out to her)
Dan Russow: Hey, Red, can we have a quick chat?
(She turned back around and stopped as he stepped out into the hallway, closing the door behind him. Alexis made sure to keep a proper distance between the two of them. He noticed, but didn’t mention it.)
Dan Russow: About this match…
Alexis Makarios: I know what you are about to say…
Dan Russow: At least hear me out? I know you got a lot going with everything Bull and Ace are doing. They are sick sonsabitches. Trust me, I know what Bull is capable of. He is more twisted than you realize and… well… I just don't like the fact that my wife is involved here and I don't want her getting caught in the crosshairs.
Alexis Makarios: I don't want her caught in the crosshairs either. I didn't want to bring anyone into this mess by my side but… Audrey is a ride or die.
Dan Russow: Trust me. I know.
Alexis Makarios: My point is… trust us. Have a little faith. Your wife is one of the toughest people I have ever met.
Dan Russow: Another thing I know more than anyone. Just… promise me you will have her back out there?
(Alexis raised an eyebrow)
Dan Russow: While she is tough as nails… she is also stubborn. And no matter how much I ask her to not go out there… she's gonna do it anyways. Just know that if anything happens to her… I'm gonna hold you personally responsible. Got it?
Alexis Makarios: Don't worry. We have each others backs out there. While you know what Bull can do… you also know what WE can do. You've seen what I can do against someone I have respect for. There's zero respect left for Bull. I'm gonna rip his head off his shoulders and shoves it up Ace's ass. I'm done with their shit!
(Dan nods in agreement)
Dan Russow: You do what you gotta do, Red. Just remember there are consequences. And if ANYTHING happens to the MOTHER OF MY CHILD…
Alexis Makarios: Chill. She will be fine. If anyone can stand up against these idiots with me… it's her. Just… have her call me please?
(Dan nods in agreement before going back in the hotel room, and closing the door, sending the scene to black)

Rise By Audrey Russow
(The flash of lightning, the crack of Thunder. Camera focuses on me, as I’m outside in the rainstorm, pushing a weight machine.)
Audrey Russow: I won’t just survive. Oh you will see me thrive. Can’t write my story. I’m beyond the archetype.
(I struggle, but keep pushing.)
Audrey Russow: I won’t just conform. No matter how you shake my core. Cause my roots they run deep.
(I keep pushing. The rain beading down my face.)
Audrey Russow: Oh ye of so little faith. Don’t doubt it. Don’t doubt it. Victory is in my veins. I know it. I know it. And I will not negotiate. Fight it. Fight it. I will transform.
(There’s another flash of lightning behind me. As the thunder echoes throughout the night sky.)
Audrey Russow: When the fire’s at my feet again. And the vultures all start circlin’. They’re whisperin’. You’re kut of time….
(In that moment. I look up and into the lense of the camera.)
Audrey Russow: But still I rise.
(With that, I push the machine to the end of the course with one huge heave. I stand up, breathing heavy as I look down at the camera.)
Audrey Russow:…..still I rise.
(I walk past the camera, as the footage ends.)
(I’d like to say everything was fine. I’d like to say we were enjoying a peaceful night at home before we fly out to Paris. But that….that would be a lie, as the screaming continues.)
Daniel Russow: I just don’t see why the bell you have to be so fucking eager to run towards the damn fire!
Audrey Russow: Excise the bell outta me! What exactly have you spent your whole liege doing!?
Daniel Russow: That’s different! I was young and dumb and did a ton of shit I had no business doing. I’m damn lucky to be here right now, and I’m trying to make sure you’re going to be here when our daughter starts needing you more.
(Did…did he just really say that?! I look him DEAD in the eyes.)
Audrey Russow: Look. just because you had that ear with Slaps and now you’re not sure if you wanna do this anymore, does NOT mean that I have ANY plans of stopping anytime soon. You think you’re just trying to protect me by wanting me out of this match, but what you’re actually doing is just pissing me the hell off because my own damn husband doesn’t have the faith in me to support me in this.
(This had been one of the worst fights we’ve had. We’d been at it for a couple hours.)
Audrey Russow: This is just like when I went on Twitter and tried to get a match with Slaps and got all but “you don’t belong here” from him and fucking Mack McKane. Now Bull and Static wanna pull their bullshit with Alexis, making her uncomfortable around any guy? Nah. Fuck that. I’ll rip those fuckers balls straight from under their little ducks and shove them down each others throat!
(This one made Dan take a step back. I think now he could see how irate I had gotten. I was literally shaking I was so mad.)
Daniel Russow: I’m just…trying to look out for you.
Audrey Russow: Well, I can look out for myself. I did it before the Russow name, and that hadn’t changed. I need to do this. I have to do this. I don’t expect you to understand why, but I did hope that I’d have your support at least.
Daniel Russow: I do support you, I’m just not sure I can support this.
Audrey Russow: Well, you can support sleeping on the couch tonight. I’m going to bed.
(I start to leave, but he pulls me in a hug.)
Daniel Russow: I’m sorry. I am just scared to death of something happening to you. I’ve had nightmares ever sense Destiny and the fall you took with Sierra. I can’t do this without you, Audrey.
(I look at him and I can tell this is real, as his eyes are watering.) I softly place my hand on his face.)
Audrey Russow: You won’t ever have to. I promise. Come on, let’s go to bed.
Daniel Russow: Thought I was sleeping on the couch.
Audrey Russow: better hurry before I change my mind.
(With that, we make our way to the bedroom.)
(The camera focuses on the iconic Arc de Triumph, as it pans down and shows me standing in front of the sight.)
Audrey Russow: Triumph….that is exactly what is going to happen for Alexis Makarios and I on Riot. In short, Corey Bull and Ace Static? You dun fucked up. All this time you’ve been messing with Lexi, playing these sick and twisted games. That all ends here. Tonight the tables turn, and we become the aggressors. You’re going to beg for mercy, but it’s not going to come. Cause see…they say he’ll bath no fury like a woman scorned….add onto that the woman happens to be a fiery redhead, who happens to bring along her tough as nails more balls than you close friend? Yeah…you two are doomed. I don’t care how big and tough you think you might be. Tonight? We are gonna make you our little bitch boys. And let this be a lesson to ANY of the guys out there that wanna tell me what I can and can’t do. Try me. I’ll rip your head off. To steal a line from my family, I’m Audrey FUCKING Russow, and you best put some respect on my name. Watch me rise, and all the vultures waiting to feed all starve to death and fall to the ground.
(I take a couple steps towards the camera.)
Audrey Russow: Get ready Bull and Static. It’s your funeral. Just try not to be too much of bitches when we beat you.
