"Webisode 6" is the sixth episode released online of the original Sanctuary Web Series.

Synopsis

The investigation into the three women found in the crypt continues, confirming Magnus' theory that they are much more than they appear. Ashley's hunt for contraband creatures yields mixed results.

Plot

Gregory and Helen

Gregory Magnus is sitting at his desk in his study when an adult Helen walks in to sit down in one of his chairs opposite her father. Helen is upset that the Royal College has revoked her father's membership considering how much her father has contributed to the college's advancements. Another reason for Helen visiting her father that night is that the Royal College has just rejected her for the third time (most likely due to a combination of her being Gregory's daughter and a woman), despite her having the highest possible marks on the entrance exam. Gregory is beside himself, commenting that Helen already knows more than the doctors administering the exam. Helen becomes frustrated at the fact that she knows that she can not legally practice medicine anywhere without a degree from the London school, and adamantly refuses to take the exam yet again. She also decrees that she won't stand for having to live a life full of mediocrity and subjugation. After a moment of thinking, Helen rises from her seat to beg her father to teach her, being as he is the most able medical researcher that she has ever known. Gregory warns her that his work is unorthodox and should not be entered into lightly nor with anger. Helen continues to plead with her father, asking that if he sees potential within her for him to help her achieve it.

Helen and Gregory

Gregory contemplates her request, eventually giving in because he recognizes her talent and partially due to Helen continually being blackballed because of his hidden work. Gregory then leads Helen down the stairs to his laboratory located in the basement underneath their residence. Before he opens the door, he warns Helen that she can never go back after seeing what is beyond the door once it is opened. Gregory pauses for a moment and then opens the door, allowing Helen inside to see and hear the abnormals within the dark room.

Danu, Will, Tatha, and Caird

Now in present day Old City at the Sanctuary, all three of the women (Danu, Tatha, and Caird) are in a session with Will in his office. Caird basically repeats what Danu told Will when she woke up, being confused about her surroundings and that she has no memory besides recognizing herself and her sisters. Will again pushes his personal belief on the three women just like he did earlier with Danu about their memories being false, that they can't be 1200 years old, and that they wouldn't be able to speak to or understand each other. Danu becomes none too pleased with Will, agreeing that the truth will come out eventually, as it always does.

Magnus and Bigfoot

Down in her lab, Magnus finishes her autopsy on the dead Keeper just as Bigfoot brings Magnus a tray of food. They briefly look at the monitor behind Magnus to watch Will in session with the three women. Bigfoot admits that they give him a bad feeling. Magnus then informs him about what she has learned from her autopsy on one of the Keepers. Her priority concern stemming from her autopsy results is whether or not the creatures may be intentionally genetically altered; not due to natural selection. Magnus then shows Bigfoot the ring she found on one of the Keeper's hands. As he looks at it, he can tell that it's very, very, old. Magnus then asks Bigfoot to give her a ride later in order to check the ring with a source of her's.

Danu and Will

Up in his office, Will performs hypnosis on Danu to help try to recall some of her memories. She remembers Keepers abducting the three of them and putting her in some green liquid. Will asks her to think back further, to which Danu then remembers her and her sisters being in a field with dead people all around them.

Ashley Magnus

In an unknown location somewhere outside of the Sanctuary, Ashley is currently seen in a cavern stalking her prey with a shotgun. A Humanoid Chameleon then starts to attack her, causing her to shoot blindly. The shotgun proves ineffective and the creature then pins her down with it. Ashley struggles to keep the creature off of her, eventually reaching into one of her pockets to pull out a stunner and stuns it to death. Ashley shoves the now lifeless creature off of her and then pulls out and unfolds a sheet of paper, checking the dead Abnormal off her list.

Tatha and Caird
Danu

Back in the Sanctuary's infirmary, the three sisters wake up from their beds, realizing that the field of dead men Danu saw earlier is a real memory, not a dream or a delusion. As they get out of bed, they remember that they were the reason behind the men dying. The three women then come together and walk out of the room, imposing the scene of the battlefield on the room.

Dr. Will Zimmerman

In his office, Will becomes distracted from his files while sitting at his desk. He looks over to his coffee mug and watches the coffee inside starting to shake.

Bigfoot

Parked on the street in front of a building located presumably in Old City, Bigfoot is seen sitting in the driver seat of a car having fun while reading his book as he waits for Magnus to return.

Magnus and Wexford

Inside the building, Magnus is in a meeting with Wexford. Magnus hands him the Keeper's ring and Wexford says that it’s at least 1000 years old. Eventually he pulls out a 5th century tapestry with the same symbols that are seen on the ring. On it, he describes that the symbol is that of the Cabalis Nocturnum and that some of these warriors were rejects from Arthur's court who are seen on the tapestry desperately wanting to drink out of Merlin's chalice to show loyalty. Wexford then describes Merlin's nemesis, Morgan le Fay, and that she created The Morrígan; witches to do her bidding.

Caird
Danu and Tatha
Will

Back at the Sanctuary, Will rushes down to the Main Lab past abnormals that are highly agitated. Will comes to a stop near the center of the Main Lab to look up and see the three women floating above him in the air, revolving around in a circle while holding hands.

Notes

  • Subtitle Error: After the opening credits, the first line spoken is by Tatha claiming that their reality right now feels like a dream that they will wake up from. In the subtitles, the character speaking is mistakenly written as 'Danu' which is clearly evident to be wrong once the scene transitions from the exterior shot of the Old City Sanctuary to the interior shot of Will's office and we see Tatha is the woman who is talking.
  • Subtitle Error: After Ashley takes down the Humanoid Chameleon somewhere in a cave underneath Old City, the scene cuts to the infirmary and the three sisters startling awake to a past memory. Caird is first to speak, knowing that their memories are real and not a nightmare. As she continues to talk about the field and sensing the dead, the subtitles mistakenly say that it is Danu who is talking, even though the sisters talk in order from Caird, to Tatha, then Danu as the last to speak.
  • While Bigfoot is out in the car waiting on Magnus as she talks with Wexford, he is seen reading a paperback book titled "Gone With the Trash: A Comic Space Opera". This book / prop is later seen being read by Kate Freelander in Episode 2x02 - "End of Nights, Part II" while recovering in the Infirmary from the gunshot wound to her leg.
