"Closer Than Sisters"

Written by: John Logan
DIR by: Coky Giedroyc

Blurb: Vanessa recalls her past and the events that ultimately led up to all of her guilt regarding Mina.

Sc01: We open on an extreme close up of Vanessa Ives' eye, as we hear scratching. This will turn out to be Vanessa writing. It is a letter to the missing Mina. In it, Vanessa mentions recovering from an illness, and that she has gone from writing a letter a month to a daily letter to her missing friend.

Miss Ives tells Mina that she looks forward to the day when things can be as they were. There is a pregnant pause, before Vanessa admits that she knows that can't be.
