Synopsis for “Wannabe (Part 3)”
A teenage dark-haired girl is with a man in a motel room. The man gets dressed and leaves some money on the bed. Scratch marks are seen on his back. The girl is in a bar visiting a well dressed gentleman who is setting her up with another money making opportunity. She goes to a different hotel room to discover the same man. This man has brought a surprise along, a knife. Kiden waits for the paramedics and rides to the hospital in the ambulance with Ms. Palmer. Kiden stays on a 24-hour vigil at Ms. Palmer’s side until she regains consciousness. When Ms. Palmer is released to go home, Kiden accompanies her. Ms. Palmer presses Kiden to return to her family and to end her life as a run away. Kiden tells her former teacher she is a mutant but Ms. Palmer believes it’s a game and encourages Kiden to return home a second time. Ms. Palmer promises to called Child Protective Services and Kiden agrees to leave the next morning. However, that night she dreams of seeing her father covered in blood. Her father gives her an address of a hotel to go to. Kiden wakes, writes it down and leaves in a hurry. Ms. Palmer hears her leave and goes to the front room to check. She finds an indent on the notepad of the address that Kiden has gone too. Ms. Palmer decides to follow her former student. Kiden arrives at the hotel first, climbs the stares, and sees a door to a room ajar. She enters and sees the dark-haired girl on the bed over the man covered in blood. The girl has two metal claws extending from her left hand. Ms. Palmer joins Kiden in standing in the doorway and staring at this horrific scene.
