[after Tris wins the game and everyone is walking off]
Ezra: Hey, Tris.
Tris: Yeah?
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!
Tris: Okay.
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]
Tris: Yeah!


[as Tris enters the Pit with the other initiates to celebrate]
Four: Tris!
[Tris walks over to Four]
Four: Hey.
Tris: Hey.
Four: Congratulations.
Tris: Thanks.
Four: You know I wanted to say to you that you did good tonight. You were brave.
Tris: Yeah.
Four: Anyway, you should get back to your friends.
[Tris smiles at him]
Tris: Okay.
[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]
Tris: Mom?
[they embrace]
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.
Tris: What?
Natalie: I have to ask you something. You weren’t sick the day you took your aptitude test, were you?
Tris: Why?
Natalie: What were your test results?
[Tris hesitates]
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]
Tris: Mom.
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…
Tris: Wait.
Natalie: …know who you are.
Tris: No, but, wait. Were you Dauntless?
Natalie: Listen!
[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]
Four: Tris.
[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.
Tris: Alright.
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: Mm-hmm.
[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.
Christina: What?
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.
[to Tris]
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?
Tris: No.
[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?
Tris: What?
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?
Tris: Abnegation.
Four: I don’t think so.
Tris: What?
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?
Tris: Abnegation.
[Four turns from her in disappointment]
Four: Fine, you’re free to go.
[Tris starts to walk towards the door]
Four: Tris?
[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]
Caleb: Beatrice.
[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.
Tris: Who?
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.
Tris: Really?
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]
Jeanine: Stop!
[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?
Tris: Yeah.
Jeanine: But you came to see your brother
Tris: I just…I just wanted to talk to him.


Jeanine: Have you seen your parents?
Tris: No.
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?
Tris: Yeah.
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]
Tris: Sorry.
[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.
Tris: Yeah.
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?
Tris: Better.
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: Hey.
Tris: Hey.
[Christina notices Tris’s sweater which Four had given to her the previous night]
Christina: Is that your sweater?
Tris: No.
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.
Al: Tris…
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]
Four: Tris.
[Tris ignores him and continues to walk off but Four follows her]
Four: Tris!
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?
Four: No.
[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 stands]
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?
Marcus: Tobias.
[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]
Tris: No!
[as Marcus attacks Four knocks him out and Tris and Four wake from the simulation]
