SAMUS’ WORLD (SEASON 2) CHARACTER LIST [SPOILER FREE]

Samus Ortiz: (26 years old). Still recovering from the attack which took place a month ago (Season 1), he is heavily focusing on his work and his love life with Dylan, even with everything around him falling apart.



Ursula Bextor: (Late 20’s-Early 30’s). After revealing she was pregnant to Samus, she is left to choose between whether she wants to be with her ex-boyfriend Kyle or stay with Tara. To make matters worse, the pregnancy starts to make her think about the mother who gave her up for adoption when she was 2 years old.



Dylan Bregar: (29 years old). He is dating Samus and is happy with every day that passes. Unfortunately he is soon about to find out what happens when the secrets he has tried to hide, starts to come out; threatening his relationship with Samus.



Gustin Allen: (Late 20’s- Early 30’s). The creator and editor of the upcoming Misfits of NYC. He is not afraid to tell it how it is. He is doing his best to make his paper much more appropriate and family friendly- even if it means stopping his team from killing each other.



Dirk Wagner: (late 20’s-early 30’s). He is a pretentious rich guy who is joining Misfits of NYC as the ‘Sports Columnist’. Not much is known about him other than the fact he is anti-LGBTQ, calls anyone that disagrees with him a ‘Libtard’-although he isn’t registered as a Democrat or Republican and doesn’t vote.



Ethan Vyler: (late 20’s-early 30’s). He is Gustin’s silent partner and the Publicist for Misfits of NYC. He is a former drug addict that is three years sober. He also has a secret past that could definitely shake up the Misfits of NYC gang.



Kyle Gater: (mid 20’s- late 20’s). He is the lead singer of the Rock band, “Gemini Head” and he is also Ursula’s ex and the father of her unborn baby. He is a rocker that dresses more like a member from Fall Out Boy.



Tara Angler: (Mid 20’s- Early 30’s). She is Ursula’s girlfriend and the owner of the LGBTQ nightclub/bar ‘Guilty Heart’.



Constable Wyatt: (late 40s-early 50’s). A silly, Sherlock Holmes type character that is the owner of his own Private Investigator firm. He isn’t a Constable at all but he wants people to refer to him as such.

Episode 1: “Hello Again, Friend of a Friend”

FADE IN:

INT-IN AN APARTMENT IN NYC- NIGHT



We enter a completely dark and quiet apartment. The faint sound of a middle-aged woman coughing is heard. We enter a bedroom to find MAX KERVER lying in bed and texting on his cellphone.





Appears on The Screen:

SWKing:“Hey ur really cute! Where r u at?”



MAX smiles to himself as he reads the text on the phone and he texts back blushing a little. He finishes texting after a few seconds and then stares at the screen smiling and waiting for a response.



Appears on The Screen:

MK1: “Well I’m originally from Heaven but God kicked me out because I was singing Pat Benatar’s catalogue. LOL! So now I live in Queens.”





A few seconds pass and MAX receives another text.



Appears on The Screen:

SWKing: “lol! Well God is a damn fool. I’m Tom.”



A few seconds pass and MAX reads his phone screen and starts texting again.





Appears on The Screen:

MK1: “Nice to cyber meet you Tom. I’m Max. Can I say something? You are very cute. Almost too cute. Are you a Catfisher? If so please tell me now because I do NOT want to go through that again. Lol!”





MAX smiles to himself as he sends the message and he taps his fingers on the back of the phone anxiously waiting for the response. He was worried that the answer would come out that this mystery person was indeed a Catfisher and that was the last thing MAX wanted to know.







Appears on The Screen:

SWKing: “No, I assure U I am not a catfisher. Maybe if u invite me over u can find out for urself.”



MAX smiles and he texts away on his phone and he sends the message.





Appears on The Screen:

MK1: “I wish I could but it’s pretty late and I’m taking care of my mother who just had her first round of chemotherapy. Maybe tomorrow? I’m heading to that new club in the Village. Maybe we could meet up there?”





MAX once again sends the message and waits for a response.





Appears on The Screen:

SWKing1: “Alright that sounds great! I heard about that club 2. I’ll be there at 7pm. I’ll be wearing a blue hoody and black fitted jeans. I’m sure you can spot me amongst the Twinks.”





MAX smiles to himself and chuckles a bit as he reads the screen. He nods to himself as he continues to text and then he sends the message.





Appears on The Screen:

MK1: “LOL! Sounds like a plan!”





MAX’S MOTHER (OFF SCREEN)

Max! I need a cup of water! Make sure it’s not too cold!





MAX lets out a sigh of frustration and he texts quickly as he gets up from the bed and heads over to the door.





Appears on The Screen:

MK1: “Brb!”











MAX throws his phone on the bed and walks out of the bedroom.

We pan over to the left of MAX’s room where a rainbow flag was proudly displayed on the wall.

BLACK.















SCENE II

FADE IN:

INT- SAMUS’ APARTMENT- THE NEXT MORNING



We enter the apartment of SAMUS ORTIZ early in the morning. The coffee table in the living room was covered with eight mugs once filled with coffee, three bags of marshmallows-all three bags were open but all were half eaten, which is strange considering they are all the same flavor- and a bag of chips was also opened and half eaten.

We see that SAMUS is seated on his sofa, alert and awake as he types at a slow speed.







SAMUS (V.O)

It has been a month since a deranged psychopath stabbed me. The wound is healing nicely-which I have to thank Dr.Pullman for his patience with me. Also for not allowing me to flatline…again. Did you know that I actually died twice? Weird right?

Anyway, through those thirty days many things have changed. How have things changed you ask? Well grab some popcorn, a drink and take a seat as I go down the list.







CUTS TO:

INT-URSULA’S APARTMENT- UNKNOWN DAY



We find URSULA BEXTOR seated in her dining room with TARA seated across from her and KYLE GATER on the right of TARA. URSULA is speaking to them both –inaudibly- as the V.O plays.









SAMUS (V.O) (CONT’D)

After Ursula told me she was pregnant, I initially thought she had gotten inseminated by a Doctor-with her there is no telling what she’ll do next. But no, truth was, she hooked up with her ex, Kyle, a few weeks before I was stabbed.

She thought nothing of it because he was only here in the city with his band Gemini Head for a week. She told me she felt the symptoms but thought it was the consequences for her trying out some new restaurant, without me.

It wasn’t until I was practically flat lining in the hospital that she decided to take a pregnancy test. The test came back positive and Ursula had no idea what to do. She had two options in her mind. Keep the baby, tell Tara- the woman she loved- that she was pregnant by her ex-boyfriend- the man she loved- or… you know.

Although she came to me for advice, I told her to ‘Follow your heart and go with the decision that will make you happy’. Deep right?

Well she decided to sit both Tara and Kyle down and tell them the truth…I wonder how that went.









We watch as TARA gets up from the chair as if she was going to walk out of the dining room but she instead punches KYLE and lunges at him, as URSULA screams out for her to get off of him.









CUTS TO:

INT- A LOCAL CAFÉ- UNKNOWN DAY



We find GUSTIN ALLEN seated at an empty table texting away on his phone as he pauses and takes a sip of his coffee.







SAMUS (V.O)

Gustin has remained very dedicated to bringing ‘Misfits of NYC’ to fruition and I don’t blame him.

Unfortunately, with ‘L&G Daily’ now known as ‘Sticky & Sweet Daily’, the pressure to compete with a blog site about Adult Film stars struggling to be taken seriously in our world, was at an all-time high.

He told me that he had an old friend who could help with the publicity needed to get the word out about ‘Misfits’ and he was also going to be a silent partner with Gustin and help support this start up project.

I just hope he isn’t some rich douche bag, who believes he’s God’s gift to the world. We don’t need any more of those guys around.







We watch as ETHAN VYLER enters the café. A smile spreads across his face as he spots GUSTIN. GUSTIN looks up from his phone and greets ETHAN with a smile.







GUSTIN

(smiles and gets up from the chair)(jokingly) It’s great to see you again Mr. Bruce Wayne.



ETHAN

(rolls his eyes smirking) No one calls me that anymore.







Both men hug each other and after a few seconds they break away and sit down on the chairs to start their meeting.







CUTS TO:

INT-SAMUS’ APARTMENT- PRESENT



We return back to SAMUS typing away on his laptop.





SAMUS (V.O)

As for me? Well I’ve been focusing heavily on what to make ‘Samus’ World’ about and let me tell you, it is not as easy as ‘Boy With A Broken Heart’. I don’t know what it is, I guess it’s maybe because I’m at a new point in my life that I don’t want to think about my past, or maybe that I’m not entirely sure if I have what it takes to write my own column.

I know I sound hypocritical and I’m changing my mind more times than a Christian couple at a Swingers party, but I know deep down this is what I want…I’ve worked pretty hard to get to this point. And I cannot have anything screw that up.

After my name was leaked to the media from my attack, I was interviewed by numerous news outlets and I have more than six hundred new followers on Twitter, so now that I have an audience, the pressure to come up with amazing contents has me losing sleep. But this is the life of a writer. Sleepless nights and arguing with the voices in your head……What? You don’t have voices in your head? It’s just me?...Ah that makes sense.







SAMUS’ concentration is cut short as his cellphone-located on the coffee table- rings. He finishes typing a sentence and he reaches onto the table and grabs the phone. He answers it and places it on his right ear.







SAMUS

(on the phone)

Hello?



DYLAN

(on the phone)

Good morning good looking.





The screen splits and we see DYLAN lying in bed talking on his cellphone.





SAMUS

(on the phone)

Hey babe! How’s San Diego?



DYLAN

(on the phone)

Shockingly wet. The meteorologists lied when they said it would be sunny…Then again I shouldn’t have trusted someone named ‘Sunny Hurricane’.



SAMUS

(on the phone) (smirks)

Well it could be worst. You could walk outside of the Hotel and a huge gust of wind could whisk you away to Oz.





DYLAN

(on the phone)

To see the Wicked Witch of the West? No thank you. I see her twice a year and her name is ‘Mom’. (laughs) (beat) So what you wearing?



SAMUS

(on the phone)

Seven layers of skin.



DYLAN

(on the phone)

Hmm…sarcasm this early in the morning? (pauses) Samus Ezekiel Ortiz, did you pull an all nighter?



SAMUS

(on the phone) (slowly)

What? Noooooooooo



DYLAN

(on the phone)

Yes you did, you little liar! (Sits up on the bed) What were you doing last night? Were you at the club? Who were you with? Were you drinking?



SAMUS

(on the phone) (rubs his eyes smiling)

Would you calm down Anderson Cooper? I wasn’t at the club. You know two things freak me out at the club. One, Manbabies buying me drinks and insulting me when I tell them I’m not interested. And two, sweaty men rubbing against me.

(beat) I pulled an all nighter because I’m still trying to figure out what the hell to write about for ‘Samus’ World’. I’m getting so desperate that I was actually reading Perez Hilton’s blog and you know I only read sad gossip sites when I’m bored.



DYLAN

(on the phone) (he lets out a sarcastic gasp)

You were on Perez Hilton’s site? Oh no this is definitely an emergency.



SAMUS

(on the phone)(laughs)

Oh hush up!





DYLAN

(on the phone)

What inspired you to come up with ‘The Adventures of a Boy With A Broken Heart’?



SAMUS

(on the phone)

Personal Pain. (beat) I’m sure something will come to me; I’m just trying to stay sane.





DYLAN

(on the phone)

Well I have faith in you. I just wish you would get some rest before you go from Lois Lane to Harley Quinn in three seconds.





SAMUS

(on the phone)

Hey! Why do I have to be two female characters? That’s stereotyping!



DYLAN

(on the phone)

You know what I mean, silly.



SAMUS

(on the phone)

Blah Blah Blah!







DYLAN laughs at SAMUS’s response and there is a knock on DYLAN’S hotel room door.





DYLAN

(on the phone)

It has appeared that my room service has arrived. I will call you later on tonight, as I take the red eye back to the city. In the meantime, get some rest, please babe.



SAMUS

(on the phone)

Okay fine! I’ll get some rest. But if Gustin replaces me with an even talented writer I will be suing you. Do you hear me Mr.Bregar? I will sue you!

DYLAN

(on the phone)

Yes Mr.Ortiz. I’ll make sure you punish me by any means necessary. Now get rest.



SAMUS

(on the phone)

Have a safe trip babe.





SAMUS hangs up the phone and he throws it back on the coffee table and lets out a sigh to himself. He looks back at the laptop screen and lets out another sigh.









CUTS TO:



SCENE III

FADE IN:

INT-THE HALLWAY IN AN APARTMENT BUILDING- A FEW MINUTES LATER



URSULA BEXTOR walks down the hallway nervously and mumbling inaudibly to herself. It was evident that she was about to do something she didn’t want to voluntarily do, but she had no choice in the matter.

She approaches an apartment door and thinks to herself before she knocks on it.



After a few seconds, the apartment door opens and standing in the doorway is KYLE GATER. He has a black and bruise on his right eye and URSULA lets out a gasp.







URSULA

Aww, Dahling I am so sorry. I had no idea Tara was going to react that way.



KYLE

Yeah I kind of figured that out, when you decided to tell her about you and I sleeping together.







URSULA

(nods solemnly)

Can I come in? There’s something we need to discuss.





KYLE steps aside and URSULA enters the small apartment looking around. KYLE waits until URSULA enters and he closes the door slowly.





KYLE

(turns around to face Ursula)

So what brings you here?



URSULA

(she nervously inhales and exhales going through the thoughts in her mind.)

After you left the apartment, I spoke to Tara and decided that the best thing for her and I, would be if we both stopped seeing each other.



KYLE

(confused)

Her and you? Or you and I?



URSULA

Her and I. I um…let’s just say I’m single again.



KYLE

I-I thought she was the one for you? I mean you did cheat on me with her…which in a kind of ironic way; you cheated on her with me.



URSULA

Yeah but I decided to follow my heart and in doing so I asked Goddess for a sign. Some form of guidance… and she gave it to me.



KYLE

(still puzzled by the words but wanted to seem as if he understood exactly what was happening.) Goddess gave you a sign? What sign could she have given you that made you choose me over Tara?



URSULA

Do you remember the night you and I hooked up?



KYLE

(nods slowly smiling)

Yes I do. I mean although you and I were black out drunk, it was that night, when I realized that- (pauses and looks down at his feet, mumbling)- I wanted to be with you.



URSULA

I went home that night and although I should have felt guilty about it, I didn’t. It felt right and it felt as if it was meant to happen. As if the universe wanted us to reconcile.



KYLE

(lets out a chuckle and walks over to his sofa)

Reconcile? If your definition of reconciling is me walking around with a shiner that your ex-girlfriend gave me as ‘reconciliation’; then I may have missed that in Webster’s Dictionary.



URSULA

No…I…um…well…(she straightens her posture and looks him in the eyes) Kyle…I’m pregnant.



KYLE

(He looks at her as if she magically grew an extra head in the seconds they were talking to one another)

Y-You’re pregnant? With a fetus? A baby?



URSULA

Well unless an alien has somehow impregnated me, then yes it is with a human child and it is yours.







KYLE slowly nods his head and he decides to walk over to the apartment door clearly processing the information he just received. URSULA watches his every move carefully and out of concern.





URSULA

Are you okay Dahling?





KYLE

Yeah, yeah I’m fine. Just um…trying to figure out if today is Monday or Thursday.





URSULA

Today’s Tuesday.



KYLE

(gulps and nods)

Ah okay…Um excuse me for a second.





KYLE raises his right index finger up in the air as if he had an intellectual thought he was going to share. But within a second and without a warning, he faints on the ground causing URSULA to gasp.







URSULA

(looking at him)

Um...Dahling?







CUTS TO:



SCENE IV

FADE IN:

INT-GUSTIN’S APARTMENT- 5 HOURS LATER (EVENING)



GUSTIN opens his apartment door to find SAMUS seconds away from knocking.





SAMUS

What are you, psychic?



GUSTIN

(softly nudges Samus out in the hall as he steps out and closes the door behind him)

We have a huge problem!



SAMUS

Yes I agree, but I have no idea why people keep casting Tom Cruise in films.



GUSTIN

No not that! Inside I have Dirk Wagner. He’s a very smart Sports Columnist from Harvard-



SAMUS

Well he can’t be all that smart if he’s back in New York City after graduating from Harvard to be a columnist. (beat) No offense.



GUSTIN

Yeah well, tell his lawyer that. Apparently, he had a deal with my dad about writing for L&G and after my dad sold the paper, Dirk decided to come back to the city. So now I have no choice but to let him work for me. If not, I have to pay him $3.8 Million.



SAMUS

(shocked)

That much just to write about sports? What the heck was your father thinking?



GUSTIN

(shrugs)

I’m his son and I don’t even know. (shakes his head) Anyway, I wasn’t interested in putting a sports section into the paper and now I’m going to have to. What should I do?



SAMUS

You’re asking me for advice?



GUSTIN

Yeah Kid. I trust you more than I trust my father and given everything, he’s put us through, you can see why.



SAMUS

(nods slowly)

Okay, well…I say let him write the sports column. Once he sees that no one cares for the Sports Section then he’d realize moving back here was a waste of his time and he’ll quit by the end of the year.



GUSTIN

And if he doesn’t?



SAMUS

Then I’d suggest we come up with an alibi.











GUSTIN glares at SAMUS for fifteen seconds, clearly not finding his joke funny but at the same time he was panicking.







SAMUS(Cont’d)

(nervously giggles)

I’m kidding, geez. If he doesn’t quit by the end of the year you can part ways with him. Tell him that your vision for the ‘Misfits of New York City’ doesn’t include his section or better yet his writing. He can’t sue you if you gave him a chance and did everything by the book. He’s going to have to hit the road with the clothes on his back and his pride.



GUSTIN

(gasps in excitement at the idea)

Yes! I’m not really firing him but instead I’m just going to go against his ideas…Then we all win.



SAMUS

Exactly!





GUSTIN claps his hands together and he kisses SAMUS on his forehead in excitement.





GUSTIN

You freaking rock!



SAMUS

(nods smiling proudly)

Yes, yes that is true. (beat) Now can we go inside, because I really have to pee!





GUSTIN opens the door to his apartment and both men enter. They stop short as DIRK WAGNER comes out of the kitchen to greet them.







DIRK

(to Gustin) I was wondering where you went. The roast you’re cooking seems to be burnt. I hope you don’t mind but I took the liberty on ordering Pizza.



GUSTIN

(through clenched teeth)

Sure, because I didn’t spend three hours preparing that roast.



DIRK

(turns to Samus)

And who are you? Are you an intern?



SAMUS

(smirking)

No, I’m usually the one interns fear. (beat) I’m Samus-



DIRK

Samus? (ponders) Now where have I heard that name before?



GUSTIN

(interjects)

Well he did write the column: ‘The Adventures of a Boy With a Broken Heart’, which was an instant hit over at L&G Daily as well as the internet.





SAMUS looks over at GUSTIN and smiles as if he was telepathically thanking him for the compliment.





DIRK

(shakes his head)

No that’s not it. I don’t read blogs, that’s beneath my intellect.



SAMUS

(sighs to calm himself down)

I was stabbed last month and almost left to die. Maybe you’ve seen me on the news?



DIRK

(looks at Samus and shrugs)

Maybe. Either way, you definitely don’t look like a Samus.



SAMUS

Thank you? (beat) Um excuse me. (to Gustin) Where is your bathroom?



GUSTIN

Third door on the right.





SAMUS nods and he passes by DIRK and heads down the hall as the doorbell rings and GUSTIN turns to face the door. He opens it and smiles as ETHAN is standing in the doorway holding a bottle of champagne.





ETHAN

Is this where the party’s at?







GUSTIN laughs and gives ETHAN a friendly handshake-one that was only familiar to them.







GUSTIN

You know the party is here bro! Come on in!





ETHAN enters the apartment and smiles at DIRK, who was glaring at him as if he was trying to find something that was physically wrong with ETHAN.





GUSTIN

(closes the apartment door)

Ethan this is our brand new Sports Columnist, Dirk. Dirk this is our co editor in chief and Public Relations Manager, Ethan.



DIRK

(glares at Ethan)

Why do you have two titles? (to Gustin) I thought this meeting was ideally for Contributing Writers only. Was I mistaken?



ETHAN

(to Dirk)

Well, you seem fun.







GUSTIN takes the bottle of champagne out of ETHAN’S hand and he motions for both DIRK and ETHAN to sit on the sofa and he leaves them both in the living room as he walks into the kitchen.

While we watch as both men sit down on the sofa and stare awkwardly at each other, the V.O plays.









SAMUS (V.O)

If this was life finally working out for me then I am beyond thrilled it is finally happening. I mean sure I’ve said it in the past that life is cruel and a jokester since the beginning of time, but was I wrong?

I have always said that I believe things happen for a reason.





CUTS TO:

We return back to KYLE’s apartment and we see URSULA walk out of the bathroom with a cold wet rag in her hands. She walks over to the living room to find KYLE seated. She smiles and places the rag on his forehead and he looks at her smiling and places a hand on her stomach.







SAMUS (V.O)

Sometimes we have to get a sign from the universe in order to help us make a huge decision that could change our lives, although scary, for the better.







CUTS TO:

DYLAN is seen walking down a street in the evening and he approaches a blonde woman and smiles as she sees him. He walks over to her and kisses her lips. They both enter an apartment building talking amongst themselves.





SAMUS (V.O)

Other times we have to just sit back and let life work itself out, because everything that is done in the dark, always comes out in the light to reveal itself; in due time.







CUTS TO:

We return back to GUSTIN’S apartment and we stare at the bathroom door. We hear as the toilet flushes and the sink turns on. After a few seconds the bathroom sink turns off and the door opens.

SAMUS turns the light off and walks out of the bathroom.







SAMUS (V.O)

But a majority of times, life can throw an unexpected curveball your way and you have two options. Either hit that curveball and get a ‘Home Run’ or stand there and get a strike.







SAMUS walks out into the living room with a smile on his face and he pauses in shock. ETHAN quickly rises to his feet in surprise and guilt as he and SAMUS stare at each other.





SAMUS

(gasps in shock) Ethan?





SAMUS (V.O)

Life just pitched me a curveball in the form of my ex-boyfriend…Yep I got a strike.



FADE OUT





SCENE V

FADE IN:

INT- MAX’S APARTMENT- CONTINUING



We reenter Max’s apartment and the sound of a mattress squeaking could be heard.





SAMUS (VO) (CONT’D)

Maybe I should take back what I said about Life. She is a cruel and unfunny jokester! I’ve always believed in Karma and with all the good I do in this world, I always thought good things would happen around me. But that’s my fault. Nothing in life is certain. The only thing that is certain in life-









We enter MAX’s bedroom to find a mystery person on top of MAX as the bed continues to squeak. As the illusion of sex is being implied, we look to find MAX struggling to breathe as the mystery person (who’s face is NOT revealed to the viewers) is strangling him with their bare hands.

After a few seconds of trying to push the Mystery person off of him, MAX stares at the mystery person as he lets go of his last breath and dies; causing his body to go limp.

The mystery person releases their grip on MAX’s neck and gets off the bed. The mystery person opens the bedroom door and walks out of the room whistling a tune as they walk away from MAX’s dead body, finally exiting the apartment.

We stare at MAX’s lifeless body staring up at the ceiling with a look of pain and hurt on his face.











MAX’S MOTHER (O.S)

Max I can’t find the remote!....Max I’m thirsty can you refill my cup with chipped ice again?...Max?...Max please, I have to watch my stories…Max?







We pan away from MAX’s lifeless body as his mother calls out his name. Unaware that her one and only son was murdered a few rooms away from her.







SAMUS (V.O)

-Is death.
