A/N: This is the final part. And the way I have certain things staged is how I would do it if I were directing a production.
THERE'S A BEAST AT THE DOOR
AND HE'S WILD AND HE'S FREE
BUT WE DON'T LET HIM IN, 'CAUSE WE DON'T WANT TO SEE
WHAT IS LURKING RIGHT BEHIND THE FAÇADE!
Henry Jekyll had walked through the very gates of hell and seen what lay beyond. The way back—if there was one—would be littered with the corpses of his shattered dreams and engulfed by flames that would yet consume him. Yet, back from the dead he came, to the sound of wedding bells.
SCENE: A Church
(Dr. Jekyll enters the church and takes his place at the front. Emma's attendants come down the aisle, with Emma and her father bringing up the rear. Emma and Dr. Jekyll face the priest.)
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here in the sight of God to join together this man and this woman in holy matrimony. If any man can show just cause why these two should not be joined together, let him speak now or forever hold his peace. Do you, Henry John Albert Jekyll, take this woman, Emma Alice Margaret Carew, to be your lawfully wedded wife...
(Dr. Jekyll hunches over in pain.)
What is it, Henry? What's wrong?
OH, GOD, WHAT NOW?
OH, GOD, NOT NOW!
HELP ME SOMEHOW!
PLEASE TAKE THE PAIN AWAY!
FEEL IT FILL ME, THIS WILL KILL ME!
OH, GOD, HELP ME!
LORD, HAVE MERCY!
DON'T LET HER SEE,
NOT ON OUR WEDDING DAY!
(He collapses to the floor. Utterson and Sir Danvers move toward him. Mr. Hyde sits up.)
There is no Henry here, only Edward Hyde.
(He stands up and approaches Simon Stride)
Mr. Stride, I hope you are respectfully recording the order of business.
(He grabs Simon Stride by the throat and chokes him. Stride falls to the floor, then Hyde takes Emma hostage.)
(He makes a move to help her, but Mr. Hyde holds him back with his cane.)
No one touches Edward Hyde, or she dies before God!
Henry, I know it is you, and you would never harm me.
Emma, leave me before it's too late.
(He walks over to John Utterson)
Do it, John. Take the pain away. Set me free.
Set us all free.
(Raises his sword, then falters)
(Dr. Jekyll grabs Utterson's sword, stabs himself in the stomach, and falls to the floor as Emma screams.)
(She kneels on the floor next to him and cradles his head in her arms.)
(Before he can say anything else, he dies in her arms.)
Rest now, my tormented love.
"Once Upon A Dream-reprise"
YOU ARE FREE NOW
YOU'RE WITH ME NOW
WHERE YOU'LL ALWAYS BE
(As the camera pans out, the chorus can be heard in a voice-over.)
MAN IS NOT ONE, BUT TWO
HE IS EVIL AND GOOD
AND HE WALKS THE FINE LINE
THAT HE'D CROSS IF HE COULD
HE IS WAITING JUST BEHIND THE FAÇADE
(The End Credits start rolling.)
