Author’s Notes: (1) This story is in screenplay format, not in fiction format.  It is the first of a series of screenplays intended to reunite Alyson Hannigan and Amber Benson in several spin-off TV movies that focus on the character of Willow.  However, they feature a new character for Amber Benson: Sara.  (2) Since the Willow and Sara Series is designed to be a true spin-off, it does employ only canon background material.  (3) Shattered Illusions should be read first.

Number of Chapters: 7 acts

Complete: Yes

Summary: Willow and Sara are a month into their new relationship.  All is going well--until Wai-Yi, a powerful warlock from China, comes calling.  He has come halfway around the world for one thing and one thing only: Willow.  But not the good Willow we all know and love.  No, he wants Evil Willow.  And he’s willing to do anything to get her, including raising Warren from the dead and enlisting his aid in the project.  Gifted with powers from Wai-Yi, Warren begins a campaign of terror designed to push Willow over the edge.  When Warren fails, Wai-Yi takes matters into his own hands.  He succeeds in bringing out Evil Willow, but in the process, he gets more than he expected.  Sara ends up being the only thing standing between Evil Willow and the world.

ACT SEVEN

INT. WILLOW’S HOUSE - THE DINING ROOM - DAY

Willow, Sara, Andrew, and Ruby are all at the table, which is covered with books.  They have been studying all night.  Willow, Sara, and Ruby are looking intently at their books, but Andrew is asleep on his.  Willow flips pages noisily, then slams her book shut.

                          WILLOW
             This is ridiculous!

                          ANDREW
                  (jolts awake)
             I’m awake, I’m awake!

                          WILLOW
             There is nothing here on Wai-Yi.

Andrew touches his mouth, realizing that he has been drooling.  He glances around to see if the others are looking.  Then he unobtrusively wipes off the pages of the book he was sleeping on.

                          RUBY
             Well, at least we found out that his name
             is Chinese.

                          WILLOW
             And that would be useful if I had any texts
             whatsoever on Chinese magic bad guys.

                          SARA
             Why don’t we ask Michael Ang?

                          WILLOW
             Our self-defense teacher?

                          SARA
             He’s not just a self-defense teacher.  He’s
             also a professor at the university.  His
             specialty is Chinese Myths and Religions.

INT. THE UNIVERSITY - MICHAEL ANG’S OFFICE - DAY

Michael Ang is sitting in his office, working at his desk. There is a knock on the door.

                          MICHAEL
             Come in.

Willow and Sara enter the office.  Michael is surprised to see his self-defense students.  He stands and moves to the side of his desk to greet them.

                          MICHAEL
             Sara, Willow.

                          SARA
             Professor Ang.

                          MICHAEL
             You can still call me Michael here.  What
             are you two doing here?  I missed you at our
             last class.

                          WILLOW
             Yeah, sorry about that.  We were...just...

                          SARA
             ...feeling a little under the weather.

                          WILLOW
             Yeah...right...under the weather.

                          MICHAEL
             Well, what can I do for you ladies?

                          WILLOW
             We were hoping you could help us with a
             little problem we’re having.  There’s
             this guy, a man, actually, a Chinese man,
             if you really want to get specific about it,
             and he...see, he’s...

                          SARA
                  (interrupting impatiently)
             Do you know who “Wai-Yi” is?

                          MICHAEL
             “Wai-Yi”?  Of course.  He’s a prominent
             figure in Chinese mythology.  He was
             supposedly an extremely powerful sorcerer,
             and an evil one at that.  He appears in many
             texts, turning the tides of battles,
             changing the course of history, that sort of
             thing.

                          SARA
             Well, he’s not a myth.  He’s real.  And
             he’s here, in town.

Michael looks at Sara and Willow in disbelief at first, then amusement.  He chuckles.

                          MICHAEL
             Whoa.  You really had me going there for a
             minute.  I almost took you seriously.

                          WILLOW
             You should.  Because we’re telling the
             truth.  Wai-Yi is real, and he’s after us,
             well, me mainly, but the point is, we need
             to know how to kill him.

                          SARA
             See, we’re witches, but we don’t have any
             books that cover this guy.  We were hoping
             you did.

Michael again looks at Willow and Sara in disbelief, but seeing their serious expressions, he knows they aren’t kidding.

                          MICHAEL
                  (shakes his head)
             I think I need to sit down.

Willow waves her hand, and Michael’s chair magically scoots into place behind him and bumps him into sitting.  Willow waves her hand again, and Michael and his chair scoot clear across the office to where Willow and Sara are standing.  Michael arrives, startled and wide-eyed.

                          WILLOW
             We’d love to continue the convincing game
             with you, Michael, but we just don’t have
             the time.  Do you have resources on Wai-Yi
             or not?

INT. THE UNIVERSITY - MICHAEL ANG’S OFFICE - DAY - LATER

Willow and Sara are at a table, taking notes from a couple of books.  Michael is standing on a stool, looking at a book he has just pulled off a high shelf.

                          MICHAEL
             Hey!  I’ve got it!  The passage I was
             looking for.

Michael gets down and comes over to Willow and Sara.  He puts the book in front of them.

                          MICHAEL
             See?

                          SARA
             Michael, this is in Chinese.

                          MICHAEL
                  (picks the book back up)
             Oh, right.  It tells of an ancient battle,
             one in which Wai-Yi was a key figure.  The
             opposing faction wasn’t able to kill him,
             but they were able to bind him, render him
             powerless.

                          WILLOW
             Well, clearly their binding didn’t hold
             since he’s out now. 

                          MICHAEL
             But it did hold, for about nine hundred
             years anyway.  Would that work?

                          WILLOW
             Nine hundred years?
                  (looks at Sara)
             Yep, that’ll work.

EXT. THE UNIVERSITY - MICHAEL ANG’S BUILDING - DAY

Willow and Sara are walking out of the building with Michael. 

                          MICHAEL
             Are you sure I can’t help you with this? 
             There must be something I can do.

                          SARA
             Sorry, sensei.  This is witches’ work.

                          WILLOW
             I know I don’t look like it, but I’ve done
             this kind of thing before...

                          WAI-YI (V.O.)
             Willow.

                          WILLOW
             I happen to --

Willow’s face goes completely blank.

                          WAI-YI (V.O.)
             Beloved.  Come to me.

Willow turns and looks out across the lawn.

                          SARA
             Willow?

Sara moves closer to Willow and touches her arm.

                          SARA
             You’re trembling.  What is it?

                          WILLOW
             He’s calling me.  I have to go.

                          SARA
             No!  You’re not going anywhere.
                  (turns Willow roughly around)
             Look at me!
                  (makes Willow look at her)
             He doesn’t own you.  You don’t have to do
             what he says.

Willow struggles to regain control of herself, her eyes darting from Sara to the lawn and back.

                          WILLOW
             He’s so strong.

                          SARA
             We are stronger.

Sara kisses Willow passionately, and soon Willow returns the kiss.  The spell is broken.

                          MICHAEL
             Excuse me, but what the hell just happened?

                          SARA
             Wai-Yi tried to take control of Willow’s
             mind.  He’s done it once before, but not
             this time.

                          MICHAEL
             How are you going to be able to do the
             binding spell if Wai-Yi can control Willow?

Willow and Sara exchange very worried looks.  They don’t have a clue.

EXT. WILLOW’S HOUSE - DAY

Willow and Sara pull up to the house and get out of the car.  Wai-Yi is waiting for them, unseen.

                          SARA
             We still have to find a way to break his
             hold on you.  I can’t go around kissing you
             every time you get blank look on your face.

                          WILLOW
                  (grinning playfully)
             Oh, I don’t know.  I wouldn’t argue against
             earning some extra smoochies.

                          WAI-YI (V.O.)
             Willow.

Willow immediately goes stiff and turns.  Wai-Yi materializes several feet in front of her.

                          WAI-YI
             Beloved.  Come with me.

Willow leans towards Wai-Yi as if she is succumbing to his call.  Sara immediately grabs Willow and pulls her back.

                          SARA
             No.  She isn’t going anywhere with you.

                          WAI-YI
             Do not interfere, witchling.  She belongs
             with me, someone worthy of her, her equal.

                          WILLOW
                  (regaining her resolve)
             No.  I don’t belong with you.
                  (pulls away from Sara)
             I’m not your “Dark Star” or your “Beloved,”
             and I’m never going to be.  So why don’t you
             just go on back from wherever you came from
             and find someone else to pester.

                          WAI-YI
             No!  You will be mine!

Wai-Yi roars and then blasts them both with a huge energy burst.  Willow and Sara are blown back against the car.  Willow puts up a shield as Wai-Yi hits them again.

                          WILLOW
             Sara!  Get in the house now!  You’ll be
             safe there.

                          SARA
             No!  I’m not leaving you!

                          WILLOW
             Sara, please!  I can’t protect both of us.

Wai-Yi hits Willow’s shield again, and it crumbles.  Willow returns fire and sends Wai-Yi flying back.  He bounces right back up and blasts Willow, and she goes down.  Wai-Yi moves toward Willow, but Sara intervenes.

                          SARA
             Get away from her!

Wai-Yi smacks Sara so hard she goes flying.  Willow regains her footing just in time to see Sara crash through the living room window.

                          WILLOW
             Sara!

INT. WILLOW’S HOUSE - THE LIVING ROOM - DAY

Ruby and Andrew are shocked from their seats when the window explodes inward as Sara’s body crashes into the room.  Sara is motionless on the floor.

EXT. WILLOW’S HOUSE - DAY

Willow looks on, anguished, then she moves toward the house.  Wai-Yi comes up behind her and grabs her by the back of the neck, zapping her.  Willow immediately passes out.  Wai-Yi catches her and lifts her into his arms.  He smiles, and they both dematerialize.

INT. WILLOW’S HOUSE - THE LIVING ROOM - DAY - LATER

Sara is on the couch being tended to by Ruby.  Andrew is cleaning up the debris from the window.  Sara’s eyes flutter open.

                          RUBY
             Sara?

                          SARA
                  (groggily)
             Ruby.
                  (then clear-headed and frightened)
             Where’s Willow?

                          RUBY
             Easy, child.  One thing at a time.  Let’s
             get you taken care of.

Sara grabs Ruby’s hands in a strong grip and moves them away.  Then she sits up.

                          SARA
                  (slowly but harshly)
             Where is Willow?

                          ANDREW
             He took her.

                          SARA
             Where?

                          ANDREW
             We don’t know.  He did his little
             transporter thing, and they disappeared.

                          SARA
             We have to find them, now!

INT. SEEDY WAREHOUSE - DAY

Willow wakes up to find herself suspended, spread-eagle, held by magical bonds.  Wai-Yi is standing in front of her.  She looks around the room and makes a face.

                          WILLOW
             Is this the best you could do?  You want to
             make me your “Beloved” and you bring me back
             to this dump?

Wai-Yi smirks slightly.  Then he waves his hand, and the entire warehouse gets an instant redecorating makeover.  Now it looks like a luxurious ancient Chinese palace.

                          WAI-YI
             Better?

                          WILLOW
                  (looks it over with a critical eye)
             It’ll do.

                          WAI-YI
             Ah, but now we look out of place.  We can’t
             have that.

Wai-Yi waves his hand again and changes their attire.  He dresses them both in gorgeous black silk/satin embroidered in gold and silver.

                          WAI-YI
             Only one change remains.

Wai-Yi goes to touch Willow, to change her into Evil Willow.

                          WILLOW
             Wait!  Stop!  Aren’t you going to tell me
             why you want me?  You know, what drew you to
             me?  I mean, that would be the romantic
             thing to do.

                          WAI-YI
                  (realizing)
             You want me to woo you.

                          WILLOW
             Well, that is what’s done in civilized
             societies.

Wai-Yi narrows his eyes suspiciously, but then he smiles.

                          WAI-YI
             Very well.  It was a little over two years
             ago.  I was going about my usual work, when
             I felt the earth herself shudder.  A vast
             power was being born.  My heart leapt.  At
             long last, there was a power equal to my
             own, a creature of darkness worthy of my
             love.

Wai-Yi starts walking around the room, clearly enjoying the opportunity for a speech.  Willow follows him with her eyes until he walks behind her.  Then she closes her eyes.

                          WILLOW (V.O.)
             Sara?  Sara?  Can you hear me?  I’m at the
             warehouse.  The warehouse, Sara!  The same
             one!  Can you --

Willow’s thoughts are broken when Wai-Yi grabs her face roughly.

                          WAI-YI
             You!  You dare contact that witchling whore
             of yours while I pour out my love for you? 
             No more!

Wai-Yi shapes his hand into a claw and jabs it into Willow’s chest magically.  Dark waves of pure black magic start pouring from Wai-Yi into Willow.  Willow screams as her body convulses.

INT. WILLOW’S HOUSE - THE LIVING ROOM - DAY

                          ANDREW
             What are we gonna do?  How can we find her?

                          SARA
             I don’t know.  Let me think.  There has
             to be --

Sara’s words are cut off when Willow makes mental contact with her.  Sara starts to crumple to the floor, but Andrew and Ruby catch her.

                          WILLOW (V.O.)

              I’m at the warehouse.  The warehouse, Sara!
              The same one!  Can you --

Sara shakes her head to make the dizziness pass.  Then she stands up.

                          RUBY
              Sara, what is it?

                          SARA
              It’s Willow.  She’s at the warehouse.  Where
              you found me.  Do you remember where it is?

                          RUBY
              Yes.

                          SARA
              Then let’s go.

INT. SEEDY WAREHOUSE - DAY

Willow has stopped screaming, but she continues to convulse as Wai-Yi pours the black magic into her.  Willow’s eyes are now black.  Wai-Yi pulls back.  Willow’s head falls forward, and she’s panting for air.

                          WAI-YI
             Now. Isn’t that better?

                          WILLOW
             No...please...no more.

                          WAI-YI
             Why do you resist?  This is who you really
             are.  Who you are meant to be.  Why do you
             choose to confine yourself in this pathetic
             white-light shadow of your true self?

                          WILLOW
             Because I’m not evil!  I’m not like you!

                          WAI-YI

             Is that so?  Then why is it that, right now,
             this very moment, you long for my next
             touch, you hunger for it, for the dark power
             that I can give you, that you once knew and
             embraced?

                          WILLOW
             No.  You’re wrong.  I don’t --

                          WAI-YI
             Liar!

Wai-Yi starts juicing Willow again.  Her convulsions become more violent, and her hair starts turning black.

INT. WILLOW’S CAR - DAY

Ruby races the car through town towards the warehouse, as Sara and Andrew hang on.

                          SARA
             Hurry!  She’s barely hanging on!

                          RUBY
             We’re almost there.

INT. SEEDY WAREHOUSE - DAY

Wai-Yi continues to force the black magic into Willow.  Veins start to form on her face, the convulsions cease, and she begins to smile.  Finally, she explodes from her bonds, sending Wai-Yi stumbling back.  Wai-Yi regains his footing and stares at his creation.  Evil Willow stands there in all her glory, with that smart-ass smirk on her face.

                          WILLOW
             You called?

                          WAI-YI
             At last.  My Dark Star.

                          WILLOW
             “My Dark Star.”  You know, I kind of like
             that.  Well, the “Dark Star” part anyway.  I
             can do without the “My” part.  I don’t
             belong to you or to anyone.

                          WAI-YI
             You are mine!  I brought you out.  And I
             shall have you.

                          WILLOW
             Uh, no, you won’t. 

                          WAI-YI
             We shall see.

                          WILLOW
             We certainly shall.

Willow blasts Wai-Yi across the room.  He jumps right up, and the fight is on.

Willow and Wai-Yi are in the thick of it when Sara, Andrew, and Ruby arrive, running into the warehouse.  They see that Willow has changed.

                          RUBY
             Sweet Jesus!

                          ANDREW
             Oh, no!  We’re too late.  She’s changed.

                          SARA
             Don’t say that!  It’s not too late!

At the end of the fight, Willow is pummeling Wai-Yi.  Every punch is preceded by a mocking line from Willow.

                          WILLOW
             I tried to tell you.
                  (punch)
             But you wouldn’t listen.
                  (punch)
             I don’t belong to anyone.
                  (punch)
             And even if I did belong to someone
                  (punch)
             it wouldn’t be someone like you.
                  (punch)
             I’m gay now.  Didn’t you get the memo?

Willow shakes her head mockingly.  Then she whacks him with one final punch sending him flying across the room.  Willow turns to Sara.

                          WILLOW
             Hi, honey. 

                          SARA
             Willow?

                          WILLOW
             Be right with you.  I’m almost done
             cleaning up.

Willow turns around and walks to Wai-Yi.  She squats beside him.  He is nothing but a bloody pulp, barely able to move.

                          WILLOW
             You know what your mistake was?  Thinking
             you were my equal. 

Willow suddenly grabs Wai-Yi by the throat and squeezes.  As she does so, she is draining the life out of him.  Sara, Andrew, and Ruby watch in horror as Willow pulls every bit of life force out of Wai-Yi, until he’s nothing but a shell, until his neck bone crumbles into dust in her hand.  She stands, dusts off her hands, then stomps on his skull, shattering it, grinding it under her foot.

                          WILLOW
             You are so beneath me.

Sara moves cautiously towards Willow.

                          SARA
             Willow?

Willow turns around.  She’s smiling.  Her eyes are no longer black, but the rest of the Evil Willow trappings are there.

                          WILLOW
             Hey, baby.  No need to worry.  I beat
             the bad guy.  Ha, ha, get it?  “Beat”
             the bad guy.

Willow moves closer.  Sara just looks at Willow with a mixture of aghast fear and deep sorrow.

                          WILLOW
             Aw, don’t look at me like that.  I was
             hoping we could celebrate.

                          ANDREW
             Sara!  You can’t trust her!

Willow angrily whips her head in Andrew’s direction.  Willow waves her hand at both him and Ruby.

Andrew and Ruby vanish in a whirl of energy.

                          SARA
             Willow!  No!  What did you do?

                          WILLOW
                  (smiling again)
             Don’t worry, sweetie.  I just teleported
             them home.  That’s all. 

Willow prowls seductively around Sara.  She puts her arms around Sara from behind.  She kisses Sara on the neck.  Sara is terrified.

                          WILLOW
                  (whispers into her ear)
             I figured we needed some alone time. 
             Don’t you?

Willow returns to kissing Sara on her neck while letting her hand roam.  Sara grabs Willow’s roaming hand tightly, stopping it in place.

                          SARA
             No.  I don’t.

Willow’s smile disappears at Sara’s words.

                          WILLOW
             No?  Am I hearing you correctly?

Willow moves around to face Sara.  She glares at Sara menacingly.

                          WILLOW
             Are you saying No...to me?

Sara starts to answer, but her words are cut off as Willow grabs Sara and throws her to the floor.  Willow straddles Sara’s leg and holds her arms down.

                          SARA
             Willow, please, you’re hurting me.

                          WILLOW
             I should hurt you.  For saying No to me.

Willow tightens her grip until Sara is forced to cry out.

                          SARA
             Willow, please don’t!  Remember...remember
             when you came for me here at the warehouse,
             when Warren had me?  Do you remember what
             he was doing to me?

                          WILLOW
             Yes.  That bastard.

                          SARA
             Well, that’s what you’re doing to me now.
             You’re acting just like him!  Is that how
             you want to be?

                             WILLOW
                  (angry)
             No!  I’m not like him!  He was --
                  (looks at what she’s doing)
             I’m not --

                          SARA
             The Willow I love wouldn’t be doing this.

Willow begins to look confused and then anguished.  She releases Sara’s arms as if they were burning her hands.

                          WILLOW
             Oh god...oh god...what have I done?

Willow begins to cry.  She reaches out to touch Sara’s cheek, but pulls back, appalled at the look of fear on Sara’s face. 

Willow gets up and stumbles away, now sobbing.  She doesn’t get far before she falls to her knees, overcome by remorse. 

Sara comes to Willow’s side, kneels beside her, and puts her arm around her.  Willow turns and wraps her arms around Sara desperately.  As Sara holds her and comforts Willow, the black slowly fades from Willow.

Willow finally pulls away and looks at Sara, or tries to through the tears.

                          WILLOW
             Sara...I’m so sorry...

                          SARA
                  (puts her hand on Willow’s mouth)
             Shhh...shhh...it’s okay.
                  (moves her hand to Willow’s cheek,
                   wipes away the tears)

Willow hugs Sara again.

INT. WILLOW’S HOUSE - THE BEDROOM - DAY

Willow stands by the window, holding her arms tightly across her chest.  Sara is heard coming up the stairs, then she enters the room and stands just inside the door.  Willow doesn’t turn around.

                          WILLOW
             They gone?

                          SARA
             Yeah.  After all that’s happened, I think
             they were ready to go home.  Sleep in their
             own bed, you know?

                          WILLOW
                  (turns around, but doesn’t meet
                   Sara’s gaze)
             I guess you’ll be heading home, too, huh?

                          SARA
                  (moves a step closer)
             What?

                          WILLOW
                  (tries to be brave)
             Well, I just thought that you’d want
             to...you know...get away from me for a
             while.  I mean, I understand if you do.

                          SARA
                  (moves toward Willow)
             Willow, I --

                          WILLOW
                  (holds her hand palm out)
             Really, Sara, it’s okay.  You should go.
             You know, have some quality alone time.

                          SARA
             You want me to go?

                          WILLOW
             No, I don’t want you to go, but if you need
             to go, for yourself, for your own peace of
             mind, I...I just want you to know that I’m
             okay with that.

                          SARA
                  (moves closer, reaches out)
             Will, what is going on?  Where is this
             coming from?

                          WILLOW
                  (raising her voice)
             Where do you think? 

Willow’s harsh tone stops Sara in her tracks.

                          WILLOW
             I attacked you, Sara!  I hurt you!  Now, you
             can’t tell me that that hasn’t affected you,
             that it hasn’t changed things between us. 
             Every time you look at me, every time I try
             to touch you, you’re going to remember what
             I did, and --

                          SARA
             Stop!  Just stop.  I’m not leaving.  I’m not
             leaving this house, and I’m not leaving you.

                          WILLOW
             But --

Willow shakes her head, still unwilling to accept the truth.  Sara moves closer.

                          SARA
             When Oz changed into a werewolf and tried to
             kill you, did you leave him?

                          WILLOW
             No!  Of course not!

                          SARA
             Why not?

                          WILLOW
             Because I loved him.

                          SARA
             Do you think I love you any less?

                          WILLOW
             No, but...what happened to Oz wasn’t
             his fault.

                          SARA
             And you think this was your fault?

                          WILLOW
             It was!  Oz didn’t choose to be bitten by a
             werewolf.  He couldn’t help what happened to
             him.  But I chose to cross that line into
             black magic.  I created that evil side of
             myself.  So I can’t stand here and pretend
             that I’m not responsible for that.

                          SARA
             Okay!  You made a mistake!  You’re entitled.
             You’re human.  And you have spent every
             waking moment since then trying to make up
             for that mistake, trying to make damn sure
             it doesn’t happen again.

                          WILLOW
             And I’ve had such great success with that.

                          SARA
             What happened today was not your fault.  You
             didn’t choose to change, Will.  Wai-Yi had
             to force the black magic into you to make
             you change.  And before that, you took a
             bullet in the chest rather than cross that
             line again.  What more can you ask of
             yourself?

                          WILLOW
             I don’t know.  I just wish...I wish I hadn’t
             hurt you.

                          SARA
             You didn’t.  It wasn’t you.
                  (looks down)
             I’m not saying that I haven’t been affected.
             I have. 
                  (looks back up)
             We both have. 

Willow’s expression is pained.  She looks into Sara’s eyes, then looks away, then repeats the process.  When Willow finally holds Sara’s gaze, Sara continues.

                          SARA
                  (takes Willow’s hand)
             But we will handle it.  We.  You and me. 
             Together.  Okay?

Willow’s eyes fill with tears.  She nods in agreement.

                          WILLOW
             Okay.

Sara pulls Willow into her arms and hugs her tightly.
 

THE END
