[after Tris wins the game and everyone is walking off]
Ezra: Hey, Tris.
Ezra: Come with us.
Tris: Where are you going?
Ezra: A short cut back. A little initiation ritual, dauntless style.
[Tris joins the others as they climb to the roof of a building overlooking the city, a zipline has been set up for the initiates to cross over the city towards the Dauntless building; to the initiate attached to the line]
Dauntless Male #1: Alright. You got it? Good.
[he’s sent off down the zipline; to Tris]
Ezra: You’re up.
Dauntless Male #1: Alright, let’s do it!
[Tris walks over to the zipline]
Dauntless Male #2: Come on, girl!
Dauntless Male #3 Go for it!
Dauntless Male #4: Do it, Tris!
[Tris is set up on the zipline and ready to be launched]
Dauntless Female #1: Looks like you’re flying!
Dauntless Male #1: Don’t forget to pull the break at the bottom!
Dauntless Male #1: Ready? Alright, let’s do it. Okay.
[Tris is launched off down the zipline across the city, she looks amazed by the sight of the city until she gets closer to the Dauntless building]
Dauntless Female #2: Pull the break!
[Tris manages to pull the break just before she hits the wall at the end of the line and the others cheer for her]
[as Tris enters the Pit with the other initiates to celebrate]
[Tris walks over to Four]
Four: You know I wanted to say to you that you did good tonight. You were brave.
Four: Anyway, you should get back to your friends.
[Tris smiles at him]
[Four turns and joins his friends and Tris goes over to join hers]
[addressing the initiates]
Max: If you ranked above the red line, you’ll move on to the second stage of training. If you’re below it, we’ll waste no more time on you. Here are your ranking.
[the ranking are revealed and there’s cheers from the initiates that have made it above the line, Tris has also made it just above the line with ranking of 20]
Will: You made it!
Christina: You made it, Tris!
[Tris smiles with relief]
[as the initiates take bags of supplies from Amity and load them onto trucks]
Christina: So we passed the first stage of training and this is our reward. Glamorous.
[Tris sees a light flashing in her eyes as if somebody is trying to get her attention, she walks behind the trucks to find her mother]
Natalie: Oh, my girl!
Tris: Mom, what are you doing here?
Natalie: I knew they’d assign you here sooner or later. Look at you. God, you’re so strong and beautiful.
[she touches Tris’s cheek tenderly]
Tris: Mom, you can’t be here.
Natalie: I know, but you’re in danger.
Natalie: I have to ask you something. You weren’t sick the day you took your aptitude test, were you?
Natalie: What were your test results?
Natalie: Honey, it’s okay, you can tell me.
Tris: They were, uh…they were inconclusive.
Natalie: Divergent? You can’t tell anyone. You can’t tell your friends, your instructors, you can’t trust anyone.
[Tris hears an alarm going off]
Natalie: People have always been so threatened by Divergents. But now Erudite is looking for them everywhere, they’re actively seeking them out.
Tris: Why? Mom, what am I?
Natalie: You don’t conform, your mind works in a million different ways. They’re scared of you. Stage two of training is where you are most at risk. They’re gonna get inside your head and watch how you respond to fear. But you can pass, you can make it through Dauntless, I have seen it before.
Tris: How do you know so much about this? You weren’t Dauntless?
Natalie: Never mind about me. Do not let them…
Natalie: …know who you are.
Tris: No, but, wait. Were you Dauntless?
[suddenly they are interrupted by one of the Dauntless instructors]
Dauntless Instructor: Hey! What are you doing?
[Tris turns and sees that Natalie has gone]
Dauntless Instructor: The truck’s loaded. Let’s go.
[Tris along with the rest of the initiates wait outside the simulation room where they will be tested on the control of their fears, they watch as Molly is taken out of the room looking shaken]
Christina: What did they do to her?
[Four then steps into the waiting area]
[Tris enters the simulation room]
Four: Take a seat.
[Tris sits in the simulation chair]
Four: I’m gonna inject you with a serum that simulates the part of your brain that processes fear.
Four: It induces hallucination and then transmitters in the serum allow me to see the images in your mind.
Tris: You can see inside my mind?
[Four goes over Tris and touches her shoulders]
Four: Lean back.
[she leans back in the seat, Four then injects the serum into her neck]
Four: Okay, you’re going to be facing your worst fears, Tris. Most people have ten to fifteen really bad ones. You have to calm yourself. Slow your heart rate and your breathing and deal with what’s in front of you. Be brave.
[Tris’s eyes close as the simulation begins, Tris then finds herself in a field by the city fence near the Amity faction, she sees a flock of crows flying towards her and as she tries to run she gets stuck in the mud, the crows attack her and she falls near a puddle of water]
Tris: This isn’t real.
[as her face drops into the puddle she then finds herself fallen completely into the water, as she starts swimming away she snaps out of simulation]
[as Tris snaps out of simulation looking shaken Four tries to calm her]
Four: Alright. It’s alright. It’s alright. You okay?
[Tris breaths heavily as she tries to calm herself and gets out of the chair]
Four: How long did you think you were in the hallucination, Tris?
Tris: Twenty minutes?
Four: Three. Four times faster than the average. I’ve never seen anyone do that well their first time. How did you get rid of the birds? The image wasn’t clear.
Tris: Um…I just went into the water.
Four: Well, next time it will be a lot easier.
Tris: I have to do that again?
Four: Yeah, you have to practice several times before the final. But you’re a natural, you got nothing to worry about.
[later as the initiates are in their quarters]
Christina: My whole body was covered in these little insects. They were in my ears, in my throat, I couldn’t breathe.
Al: I heard about this guy, like two years ago, got so panicked he had a heart attack in his chair, he almost died.
Al: Yeah, so we got that to look forward to, right?
[Will chuckles; to Tris]
Christina: You didn’t seem to have any problems at all.
Tris: Me? No, no. Oh, my God. It was awful.
Al: Oh, come on. No one even came close to your time. You were amazing.
Peter: Yeah, what’s amazing is how she’s gonna knock you right out of Dauntless.
Al: She’s not gonna knock me out of Dauntless.
Peter: Look she’s gone from being the worst to one of the best. Somebody’s gotta take her place at the bottom. Who’s it gonna be? You.
Christina: Do you ever stop talking?
Peter: I just want to know how she does it.
Peter: What’s your trick?
Tris: I don’t have a trick.
Peter: Nobody gets through it that fast. Why don’t you tell us how you do it?
[Tris ignores him]
Peter: At least tell your friends.
[Peter walks off]
Al: What’s he talking about? Is there some way to make it easier?
[the others look at her with suspicion]
Tris: No. I’m not…I’m not doing anything.
[we see Tris running to the Pit where her friends and Four are all waiting but as she gets closer she finds herself trapped behind an invisible wall, as Tris is in her second simulation, she finds herself trapped in a tank filling up with water]
Tris: Hey! Help me!
[as the tank fills and she goes under water she sees her reflection in the glass]
Tris’s Reflection: This isn’t real.
[she touches the glass with her finger which starts to crack, as she taps it a couple of times the glass suddenly breaks and Tris suddenly snaps out of the simulation]
Four: How did you do that?
Four: How did you break the glass?
Tris: I don’t know, I just did it.
Four: You just did it?
[Four looks suspiciously at her]
Four: What were your test results? Your aptitude test?
Four: I don’t think so.
Four: I think you’re lying to me.
Tris: Why…why would I lie to you?
Four: I’m gonna ask you one more time. What were your test results?
[Four turns from her in disappointment]
Four: Fine, you’re free to go.
[Tris starts to walk towards the door]
[she turns to face him]
Four: Just so you know, Dauntless don’t break the glass like that.
[Tris turns and leaves the room]
[later Tris visits Tori]
Tori: My brother, he was like you. During the second stage he got good really fast. Last day of the simulations one of the Dauntless leaders came in to watch him. The next morning we found his body at the bottom of the chasm. They got rid of him.
Tris: Who did?
Tori: Dauntless leadership. You can’t let them find out about you.
Tris: And what if they already know?
Tori: Then you’re already dead.
[Tris goes to Erudite to visit Caleb]
[Tris embraces Caleb]
Caleb: What are you doing here?
Tris: I’m in trouble.
[Caleb takes her to a quiet corner]
Caleb: What happened?
Tris: I’m not gonna make it in Dauntless. I don’t fit in there.
Caleb: You have to fit in there.
Tris: I can’t.
[she pauses for a moment]
Tris: I’m…I’m…I’m just, I’m not like them.
Caleb: Who is? They’re crazy.
Tris: Maybe I can go back to Abnegation.
Caleb: You can’t got back.
Tris: I know, but…
Caleb: They’re never gonna let you do that.
Caleb: Erudite. They’re not gonna let Abnegation break anymore rules.
Tris: They actually think that they’re running the government now?
Caleb: They might be soon.
Caleb: Erudite should be in charge. Certainly not Abnegation.
Tris: Wait, Caleb. How can you say that?
Caleb: It’s what all the other factions want, now that Abnegation failed.
Tris: No. That’s just what they’re telling you.
Caleb: It’s true.
Tris: It’s not true. It’s not. There are liars here, there are people who know how to manipulate you. You need to understand that.
Caleb: Beatrice. I think you should go.
[Tris looks at Caleb with tears in her eyes]
Tris: Faction before blood, yeah?
[Caleb doesn’t reply]
Tris: Got it.
[looking visibly upset Tris turns and starts walking away]
[as Tris is leaving the Erudite building she’s stopped by two Erudite officials]
Erudite Official: I need you to come with me.
[Tris ignores them but the official grabs her and Tris hits him and attacks the two officials]
[Tris looks up to see Jeanine]
Jeanine: Are you alright?
Tris: Yeah, I’m fine.
[Tris follows Jeanine to her office]
Jeanine: Please, sit down.
[Jeanine’s assistant serves them tea]
Tris: Thank you.
Jeanine: I’m glad you came here today.
Tris: You are?
Jeanine: Are you happy with your new faction?
Jeanine: But you came to see your brother
Tris: I just…I just wanted to talk to him.
Jeanine: Have you seen your parents?
Jeanine: It’s hard to let go. Faction before blood. It’s an important ideal, but sometimes difficult to fulfill. It goes against our fundamental human nature. But that’s exactly the weakness we need to overcome.
Tris: You think that human nature’s weakness?
Jeanine: I think human nature is the enemy. It’s human nature to keep secrets, lie, steal, and I want to eradicate that. That’s how we’ll maintain a stable peaceful society. You would help me with that wouldn’t you?
Tris: How would I help you?
Jeanine: You’re aware that Abnegation is undermining the faction system, they’re breaking laws, harboring Divergents?
Tris: No, I didn’t know that. But if that’s true, then I’m glad that I left.
Jeanine: See I need to know that I can count on you to enforce the law, even if it’s been broken by someone close to you, someone you care about.
Tris: Of course.
Jeanine: Good. Then I’ll have my car take you back to Dauntless.
[when Tris returns to Dauntless she is caught by three masked guys and dragged across to be thrown into the chasm]
Dauntless Male: Come on! Get her over!
[as Tris struggles she unmasks of the guys and is shocked to see it’s Al]
Dauntless Male: Come on! Do it! Do it!
[as they are about to throw her over the edge Four arrives and fights them off, after he’s knocked them all down he goes over to Tris]
Four: You alright?
Four: Come on. Let’s go.
[Four takes Tris to his room and brings her a sweater as she sits on his bed]
Four: Here, put this on.
Tris: Thank you.
Four: You’ll be safe here.
[Tris puts on the sweater, then Four kneels before her, takes her hand to start tending to her wounds but Tris grabs his hand]
[Four gently tends to her wounds]
Tris: I can’t believe Al.
Four: You’re moving up through the ranks and he’s failing. It makes him hate himself, it makes him hate you. He’s…he’s just afraid.
Tris: Everyone’s afraid.
Four: I know, but fear does something strange to people like Al. But not you. Fear doesn’t shut you down, it wakes you up. I’ve seen it.
[Four finishes tending to her wounds and stands]
Four: You should lie down, get some sleep.
Four: I’ll take the floor.
[the next morning Tris wakes up to find Four not in the room, as she gets up Four enters the room]
Four: How are you feeling?
Four: Good. Where did you go yesterday?
Tris: To see my brother.
Four: It’s getting a little boring for you here, is it?
Tris: My brother said that he thinks Erudite’s is planning to overthrow Abnegation. Do you think they could do that?
Four: Yeah, I do. I think it’s possible. Depends on how far they’re willing to go.
Tris: I’m worried about my parents.
Four: Yeah. But I think you got other things you need to worry about. Don’t you?
Tris: Yeah. I should go.
[Tris leaves the room]
[Tris joins Christina and Will in the Pit as everybody is having breakfast]
[Christina notices Tris’s sweater which Four had given to her the previous night]
Christina: Is that your sweater?
Christina: So what happened to you last night?
[just then a distraught looking Al interrupts them]
Al: Tris, can I talk to you for a second? Please. I just wanted to say that I’m sorry. I…I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Please, can you ever forgive me?
[Tris look at him in anger and shakes her head]
Tris: If you ever come close to me again, I will kill you.
Tris: You just stay away from me! You are a coward.
[looking visibly upset Al turns and walks away]
[in their quarters Christina and Will try to comfort Tris]
Christina: I just can’t believe he would do that? It’s not like him at all.
[suddenly they hear an alarm going off]
Will: What’s that?
[they all go to investigate and find some Dauntless members pulling out Al’s body from the chasm]
Tris: Oh, my God!
Dauntless Male: Must have just jumped.
[feeling terrible Tris walks off when Four finds her]
[Tris ignores him and continues to walk off but Four follows her]
Tris: Leave me alone.
[Four grabs her arm]
Four: I’m sorry about Al.
Tris: It’s my fault that he’s dead.
Four: No, it’s not because of you. He made his own choice. He would have been factionless, he was not gonna pass the final test.
Tris: Neither am I.
Four: Why do you say that?
Tris: You know why. And as soon as all the others find out, they’re gonna kill me.
Four: I’m not gonna let that happen.
[Four takes Tris into the simulation room]
Four: Shut the door.
[Tris closes the door]
Four: You’re gonna practice.
Tris: In my fear landscapes?
Four: No, in mine. We go in together.
Tris: Have you ever done this before?
Four: No, I haven’t.
Tris: Are you sure you want to.
Four: Why wouldn’t I?
Tris: I don’t know, I mean you haven’t told me anything about yourself and now you just wanna let me inside of your head?
Four: Are you afraid of that?
Tris: You’re not?
[he injects himself and Tris with the serum]
[in Four’s fear landscape Tris finds herself on a rail high above the city with Four]
Tris: Fear of heights. I’m not surprised.
Tris: It’s not real. We could just jump.
Four: No. A Divergent would jump, Dauntless would get to that building.
[he looks to the building behind them]
Four: If you wanna pass, if you wanna avoid discovery you have to do everything the way a Dauntless would do it. You have to find tool, some method to survive.
[they walk over to the building and enter, then they find themselves trapped inside a vent with the walls closing in on them]
Four: Fear of confinement. You have to find a way of stopping it. What would a Dauntless do?
[Tris finds some nails and starts putting them under the walls to keep them from closing in on them]
Four: Good. Take your time. I’m just enjoying myself in a shrinking box.
[once the walls have stopped closing in on them they find themselves in a room, Four picks up the gun form a table and stand before a girl sitting in a chair]
Four: As a Dauntless soldier you have to follow orders you don’t always agree with.
Tris: Who is she?
Four: She’s an innocent. I have to kill her.
[Four walks over the girl and points the gun to her head]
Four: But I can never do it. Unless I look away.
[Four looks away and shoot the girl]
[next they find themselves in Abnegation]
Tris: Why are we in Abnegation?
Four: Your last feat is your worst fear. It lives in the deepest part of your mind.
[they’re in a house, the see Marcus coming down the stairs, holding a belt]
Tris: Marcus had a son. What was his name?
[Four looks around in fear as they are surrounded by multiple versions of Marcus walking towards Four]
Marcus: Tobias. Tobias. Tobias. Tobias. Tobias, I was trying to help you, to be better.
[Marcus walks over to Four, as he goes to raise the belt to hit Four with Tris stops him]
[as Marcus attacks Four knocks him out and Tris and Four wake from the simulation]
[Four is on the balcony of his room when Tris walks over to stand beside him]
Tris: Four? Four fears?
Four: Four then, four now. I keep going in there, but I don’t think you ever lose them.
Tris: Can I ask you something?
Tris: What’s your tattoo?
[Four smiles at her]
Four: Do you wanna see them?
[Tris smiles, Four turns, takes his shirt off to show the tattoos on his back]
Tris: That’s amazing.
[Four has symbols of each faction on his back, Tris touches his back as she looks at them]
Tris: The factions. Why do you have all of them?
Four: I don’t want to be just one thing. I can’t be. I want to be brave, and I want to be selfless, intelligent and honest and kind.
[he turns to face her]
Four: Well, I’m still working on kind.
[Four leans in and they kiss]
Tris: I don’t want to go too fast.
Four: It’s okay. I’ve already got my spot on the floor.
[the next morning Tris wakes as Four sits beside her on the bed]
Four: Hey. Come on, I wanna show you something.
[Four takes her to the roof of a building]
[Tris looks down to see Erudite members bringing in supplies]
Four: Yeah. They’re here every morning. I’ve been watching them for weeks.
Tris: What are they doing in Dauntless?
Four: Loading in supplies. Computers. And these.
[he shows her a vial containing an orange serum]
Tris: What is it?
Four: I think it’s some kind of cognitive transmitter, you inject it like a serum.
Four: It’s supposed to make you more susceptible to suggestion, but as many as they have, they could create an army.
[Tris looks at him with fear, they are interrupted by an announcement]
Dauntless Announcer: Attention, all initiates report for final testing. All initiates report for final testing.
[Tris looks at Four with worry]
Four: You’re ready. You can do this.
[Tris walks into the building where the final testing is to take place, she looks around and sees Jeanine there along with the Dauntless leaders]
Four: They can see your hallucinations on the screen. So you get passed your fears the way the Dauntless would, but do it quickly.
Tris: Right. If I’m too good then they’ll kill me, and if I’m too slow then I’ll die.
Four: Right. Good luck.
[Tris goes to her simulation chair, she takes her seat]
Tori: Good luck, Tris.
[Tori injects her with simulation serum]
Tori: I hope you make it.
[Tris closes her eyes then opens them to find herself in her fear landscape, she’s in the middle of a field and starts getting attached by crows, but this time she doesn’t jump in the water, she sees fire ahead and grabs a burning branch to scare off the birds, next she finds herself tied in the middle of the burning field, she manages to burn the rope around her hands and quickly puts her hand in the water nearby, next she finds herself in the tank filling with water, she takes off her jacket and plugs the drain to stop the water coming in]
[still in the fear simulation, Tris is in Four’s room, Four walks over to her]
[they start kissing, as Four goes to take off her shirt Tris stops him]
[Four pushes her onto his bed]
Tris: Four. Four!
[he grabs her hands and lies on top of her]
Tris: Stop. Four!
Four: Once your Dauntless…
[he starts kissing her, Tris kicks him in the groin and throws him off, next Tris wakes up in the simulation testing area with everyone clapping for her, she steps down from her seat and goes over to Four]
Tris: Please tell me that you weren’t watching that.
Four: You’d feel better if I said no?
[Four smiles at her, then Jeanine walks over to them]
Jeanine: You did well.
[she holds out a gun for Tris to take]
Jeanine: Yeah. One final test.
[Tris takes the gun then sees her parents and Caleb walking towards her]
Jeanine: You know what to do.
Jeanine: If you wanna be Dauntless.
Jeanine: Do it.
[she turns to her family, points the gun and shoots]
[as she shoots her family in her fear simulation she wakes up from the simulation]
Four: You alright?
[Tris looks around to see Jeanine talking to the other leaders]
Four: It all looked good to me, okay? Come on, let’s go.
[after everyone has been tested, Max addresses the initiates]
Max: Congratulations…new members of Dauntless.
[everyone cheers, later all new members assemble in the Pit]
Dauntless Female: Come on, get in line.
[to Christina and Will]
Tris: What’s going on?
Eric: Alright, listen up. Before you leave tonight, I want you all in four lines. Everyone gets a tracking device. Don’t ask questions, just a precaution,
[Tris sees everyone in line being injected, she looks around in fear]
Tris: Do you see Four?
Will: What’s going on?
Tris: Oh, my God.
[Tris goes to leave when Eric stops her]
Eric: Congratulations. You should be first in line, but I’ll make it easy for you.
[one of the Dauntless members injects Tris in the neck]
Eric: Hurts like a bitch, huh? Now you’re really one of us.
[Tris wakes up in the middle of the night to find all the other new members getting dressed, she looks over to Christina]
Tris: Hey, what’s…?
[as she looks at Christina she sees Christina look at her blankly, Tris quickly realizes something is wrong, everyone is being mind controlled]
Dauntless Announcer: Faction before blood.
Tris: Oh, my God.
[Tris gets dressed and joins the others as they line up in the Pit where Eric and Max are checking them]
Max: They can see and hear us, but just don’t process it the same way. The command’s come in to be transferred.
[Tris tries to blend in like the others and watches as they pick up guns, she then notices a man wondering out line looking bewildered]
Dauntless Male: What’s going on? What are we doing?
[Max and Eric notice the man walking out of the line]
[Eric goes over to the man]
Eric: Hey. Everything’s fine, nothing to worry about.
[Eric shoots the man in the head; later on board the train, Tris notices Four a few rows ahead of her, she slowly makes her way over to him, as she stands next to him he takes hold of her hand and Tris is relieved to know that Four is also Divergent and has not been effected by the serum]
[after the train stops at Abnegation, the Dauntless start marching through Abnegation and rounding up the people in Abnegation]
Dauntless Male: Hurry up! Move!
[Tris and Four watch as people are being forced out of their homes at gunpoint]
Abnegation Man: I’m not resisting! I’m not!
Tris: I need to find my parents.
[suddenly they stop as they see one of the Dauntless kill an Abnegation member]
Four: Just keep moving. Where’s your house?
[they enter Tris’s house but find the house empty]
Tris: Mom? Dad?
Four: Where would they have gone?
Tris: I don’t know.
[Tris and Four exit Tris’s house and start marching with the other Dauntless but Eric notices Four and stops him]
Eric: The legendary Four, a mindless drone. You were first in your, class now you’re…nothing.
[Eric goes to leave but senses something and turns to look at Four again]
Max: What? You think he might be…?
Eric: There’s one way to find out.
[Eric points his gun at Four’s head]
Eric: Say goodbye, asshole.
[Tris, who’s standing behind them points her gun at Eric, then Max raises his gun and at the same time Four points his gun at Max]
Four: Move and you’ll die!
[Eric looks at Tris]
Eric: The Stiff?
[Eric laughs and looks at Four]
Eric: Two Stiffs. Two dead Stiffs.
Max: We can’t let a single Divergent slip through. This is what happens.
Eric: She’s not gonna shoot me.
Tris: I think you might be overestimating my character.
[as Eric turns to attack Tris she shoots him in the leg, Four then knocks down Max]
[Tris and Four make a run for it]
[as Tris and Four are making a run for it Max shoot at them and hits Tris in the arm]
Four: You’re hit?
Dauntless Male: Okay, don’t move!
[some Dauntless members point their guns at them]
Max: Drop your weapons.
[after they are captured Tris and Four are taken to Jeanine]
Jeanine: Tobias Eaton.
[looking at Tris]
Jeanine: And you, Beatrice. I thought it was intellect I was sensing in you.
Four: Maybe you’re not as smart as you think you are.
Tris: Why are you attacking all these innocent people?
Jeanine: Innocent people? Abnegation if left unchecked will destroy the faction system. Same can be said of both of you. Somebody has to stop you, if we don’t, peace will be lost.
Four: It’s already been lost, you destroyed it.
Jeanine: Human nature destroyed it. Those of us with the vision to see that are called upon to protect the rest. We will restore the peace. And this time it will last.
Tris: And what if you’re wrong?
[Jeanine doesn’t reply, she looks at Tobias for a moment; to her guards]
Jeanine: Bring him with us.
[she walks over to Tris, touches the gunshot wound on her arm making Tris wince in pain]
Jeanine: She’s injured. Then her results would be unclear. You can get rid of her.
[as Jeanine turns Four hits the guard holding him and goes to attack Jeanine, but the guards stop him, knock him down]
Dauntless Male: Let’s go, come on!
[the guards drag Four to Jeanine’s car, he looks back at Tris as she is being taken away]
[Tris is taken to a quiet spot to be executed, just as the guards are about to shoot her they are shot and killed, Tris looks up to see Natalie running towards her]
[Natalie reaches Tris]
[she takes one of the dead guard’s knife and cuts Tris’s bondage]
Natalie: Okay, we gotta run.
[they both start running off and Tris picks up one of the guards gun]
Tris: You were Dauntless?
[Natalie smiles at her]
Natalie: Served me well today.
Tris: Is Dad okay?
Natalie: Yeah. He led a group over to Monroe in the State, we’re gonna meet him there.
[they see some Dauntless members running over to them]
Natalie: Let’s go!
[Tris and Natalie run off but the Dauntless members chase after them and shoot at them, they take cover and shoot back when Tris notices Will pointing his gun at them]
Tris: Will! Will!
[under the influence of the drug, Will doesn’t respond and suddenly shoots]
Tris: Will! Will, stop! Stop!
[Will continues to shoot]
[Tris reluctantly shoots back and kills him]
[after they kill the Dauntless, including Will, that were chasing them, Natalie looks around]
Natalie: Okay. Come on, honey. We gotta go.
[Tris looks at Will’s dead body as they go to leave, she suddenly stops, Natalie turns to her]
Tris: I killed him. I killed him. I killed him.
[Tris starts to break down]
Natalie: Come here.
[she embraces Tris to comfort her]
Natalie: Okay. Let’s go find your father.
[they look out into the street]
Natalie: Cover me.
Tris: No. I’ll go.
[Tris runs out in the street and soon she is noticed by more Dauntless members, they start shooting, Tris shoots back with Natalie joining to help her and they manage to cross the street]
Tris: You okay?
Natalie: Yeah. I’m okay.
[Tris grabs the gun fallen on the ground and shoots at the Dauntless members]
Tris: Okay, let’s go!
[she turns to Natalie and sees her lying on the ground]
Tris: Mom. Mom? What is it?
[she looks down and sees that Natalie has been shot in the side]
Tris: Mom! Mom!
[Natalie dies as Tris goes to grab her head]
Tris: Mom! No! Mom! Mom!
[Tris begins to weep as she holds on to Natalie]

[she reluctantly leaves Natalie’s body and starts running off]
Tris: Oh, God!
[Tris enters the safe house that Natalie had told her to go to, she sees some Abnegation members hiding and goes over to them]
Tris: Where’s my father?
[Tris turns and sees Andrew come out of his hiding place]
Andrew: Your mother?
[Tris doesn’t reply and Andrew realizes what’s happened, he goes over to her and embraces her as she begins to cry, Caleb then comes out of his hiding place and watches them]
Tris: She saved me. She saved me.
Andrew: Then it wasn’t in vain.
Marcus: We need to leave here.
Marcus: Are there soldiers outside?
[Tris looks at him coldly before replying]
Tris: No, it’s clear.
[Tris goes over to Caleb who starts crying]
Caleb: I should have believed you.
[Tris embraces him]
Caleb: I left as soon as I realized. Why is this happening? I don’t understand. Why are Dauntless fighting for Erudite?
Tris: They don’t know what they’re doing, they’re under simulation. We need to wake them up, I need to get to Dauntless.
Marcus: It’s a fortress. It’s not gonna happen.
Tris: I can get us in there.
[after taking some of the dead Dauntless weapons, Tris takes Andrew, Caleb, and Marcus, to the train that takes them to Dauntless]
Tris: Get ready.
Andrew: What now?
Tris: You’re not gonna like it.
[she opens the train door and jumps off the train onto the rooftop, the others follow after her as she guides them to the edge where they have to jump down through the hole]
Tris: There’s a net at the bottom. Don’t think, just jump.
[they all jump through the hole with Tris helping Andrew off the net]
Tris: Are you good?
[to the others]
Tris: Good? Let’s go.
[as they enter further inside Tris notices Peter holding guard; to the others]
Tris: Wait here.
[Tris attacks Peter from behind, disarms him and holds him at gunpoint]
Tris: Against the wall. Against the wall!
[Peter stand by the wall]
Tris: How are you awake?
Peter: Cause I’m smarter than you. And they need me.
Tris: Where are they controlling it from?
Peter: Why would I tell you? It’s not like you’re gonna shoot me.
Tris: Why do people keep saying that?
[she shoots him]
Tris: Where are they controlling it from?
[as Peter guides them to where the Dauntless are being controlled]
Marcus: Did you really need to shoot him?
Tris: Every minute we waste another Abnegation dies and a Dauntless becomes a murderer.
Tris: Peter, let’s go.
[they come to a stop as they see Dauntless members gathered outside a room]
Tris: It’s there, isn’t it?
Tris: I’ve seen Jeanine go in there. That’s where she’s controlling it from.
[Andrew takes Tris’s gun]
Andrew: Like you said, we have no second to waste.
[Andrew suddenly steps out of their hiding place and starts shooting]

Tris: Hi. Hi.
[as she starts to untie his hands suddenly he pushes her aside and it’s clear that the serum he’s been injected with is working]
Tris: Four. Four. Four, it’s me. You’re in a sim.
[just then Jeanine and some of the Erudite members walk in]
Jeanine: He can’t hear you. Amazing, isn’t it? Everything we think of what makes up a person, thoughts, emotions, history, all wiped away by chemistry.
Jeanine: He’s gone. And we’re all safer for it.
Tris: Safer? How are we safer?
Jeanine: The brilliance of the faction system is the conformity of the faction removes the threat of anyone exercising their independent will. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a certain beauty in resistance. It defines the categorization. It’s a beauty we can’t afford
[Jeanine turns and walks off]
[one of the Erudite members goes to the computer to instruct Four, Tris walks over to Four and whispers]
Tris: Four, it’s me. It’s me.
[she touches his face]
Tris: Please, look at me.
[just then Four attacks her as the Erudite member controls his brain through the computer, Four starts hitting her and Tris tries to fight back]
Tris: Four, it’s me!
[Four continues to attack and hit her, Tris fights back but he throws her to the ground, she grabs the gun fallen on the ground and points it at him as he goes to attack her again]
Tris: Four, stop! Stop! Stop. Please.
[just as Four goes to attack her she points the gun to her own head, Four grabs the gun]
Tris: It’s me. It’s me. It’s me.
[Jeanine watches them]
Tris: It’s okay. I love you.
[suddenly Four shows signs of fighting against the serum]
Tris: Four, look at me. Look at me.
[she holds his face in her hand]
Tris: It’s me. It’s me. It’s me.
[Four begins to recognize her]
[the Erudite members behind point their guns at them]
[suddenly Four turns and shoots at them, Tris picks up a knife and helps to attack]
[as Four and Tris are fighting off the Erudite and Dauntless members Jeanine quickly orders her helpers]
Jeanine: Finish it.
[Tris sees Jeanine trying to finish the process of Dauntless killing all the Abnegation members, she manages to stop her by throwing her knife which pierces Jeanine’s hand, as she goes over to Jeanine an Erudite goes to attack her but Four knock him out]
Tris: Shut it down.
[Tris watches the monitors as the Dauntless, including Christine, continue to kill Abnegation members in, she grabs hold of Jeanine]
Tris: I will not ask you again. Do it! Shut it down!
Jeanine: I admire you’re willing to die for what you believe in, but so am I.
Jeanine: Can’t do it, can you?
[Tris looks around in desperation when she notices a vial of the serum on the floor, Four realizes what she wants to do, then Tris pushes Jeanine away]
Jeanine: Maybe you’re not quite as Dauntless as you thought you were.
Tris: You’re right. I’m not.
[Four prepares the serum injection and throws it to Tris]
Tris: I’m Divergent.
[suddenly she injects the serum into Jeanine’s neck]
Tris: Now, shut it down and wipe the program.
[under the influence of the serum Jeanine shuts down the program and suddenly the Dauntless members become conscious looking confused]
[realizing that she’s wiped the program]
Jeanine: No. No. No!
[Jeanine looks around in panic]
Tris: Don’t get me wrong. There’s a certain beauty to your resistance.
[suddenly Jeanine attacks her in anger but Tris manages to knock her out unconscious]
[Four looks at the monitors which show the Dauntless members coming after them]
Four: We gotta go. Now.
[as they leave the control room Four notices Marcus]
[Four looks at him coldly]
Four: We need to keep moving.
[Four, Tris, Marcus, Caleb and Peter leave the Dauntless building]
Peter: Alright, move!
[they run to catch the moving train, Four, Peter and Caleb jump on, Marcus calls out to Four]
[reluctantly Four gives Marcus a hand to board the moving train, then Four looks and sees Tris running to jump on board]
Tris: I got it!
Four: I know you do.
[Four grabs her and helps her to jump on board]
[last lines; as they head out of Dauntless on the train Tris and Four hold onto each other]
Tris: My Mom and Dad died today. They’re gone.
Four: I know. But they loved you, Tris. For them there was no better way to show you.
Tris: We have nothing. We have no home, no faction. I don’t even know who I am anymore.
Four: I know exactly who you are.
Tris: Are you sure about that?
Four: Yeah, I’m very sure.
[she faintly smiles at him]
Four: Come here.
[he embraces her again and they hold onto each other closely]
Tris: [voice over] We’re like the factionless now, we’ve left everything behind. But we found ourselves, and each other. Tomorrow we may have to fight again, but for now we’ll ride the train to the end of the line. And then…we’ll jump.
[Four and Tris watch as the train reaches the fences surrounding the city]
