INT. BURNT OUT WAREHOUSE - NIGHT TWO FACE, holding a PISTOL, stands over BARBARA GORDON, HER SON and HER DAUGHTER. COMMISSIONER GORDON LIES on the ground across from him. He has just been pistol whipped and is appropriately fazed. Two Face puts the gun to Barbara’s temple. GORDON Harvey. Put the gun down. You're not going to hurt my family. TWO FACE No, just the person you need most. (cocks gun) So who is it? GORDON Put the gun down. Dent moves the gun from Barbara to Gordon’s little girl to Gordon's little girl to Gordon’s Son. Gordon SNAPS. GORDON Goddamit. Stop pointing that gun at my family, Dent! TWO FACE We have a winner. Dent pulls the boy away from his mother. BARBARA No! Jim stop him! Don't let him! BATMAN (O.S.) You don't want to hurt the boy, Two Face. Two Face turns towards Batman, who steps from the shadows. TWO FACE It's not about what I want. It's about what's fair. Two face turns to Gordon, so his normal face is profile to batman. TWO FACE You thought we could be decent men in an indecent-- BATMAN (interrupting) Harvey! Thank god you're here! Two Face is holding Gordon's boy hostage. TWO FACE (turning back to Batman) What are you talking about? BATMAN Tow Face! You're back! Give up the boy. Nothing fair ever came out of the barrel of a gun. TWO FACE (to Gordon) He knows what happened to me, right? BATMAN Harvey! Use that gun you're holding on Tow Face next time he shows his faces! TWO FACE (back to Batman) You know I'm Harvey Dent, right? BATMAN Harvey? Where'd you go? Tow Face is back and he looks super pissed off. TWO FACE I'm Harvey Dent. BATMAN Nice try Two Face, but your tricks won't work on me. Let go of the boy. GORDON Batman, remember? The Joker said you had time to only save one? Race to get to Rachel? Explosions? BATMAN Huh? TWO FACE You kidding me? My face melted! I'm insane now! You don't remember this? BATMAN It's been a crazy day...and...you know...this suit gets hot and I sorta go in and out. TWO FACE Okay look at me. Look at both sides of my face. BATMAN Good and evil, waging war. TWO FACE Forget about that. See this side? (points to his normal face) Who does it look like? BATMAN Two Face. TWO FACE Just this half. BATMAN Half of two face. Gordon, now that Harvey left, I have to ask, can we trust him? GORDON No we can't trust him. He has a gun up to my son's head. TWO FACE (turns to Gordon) This is the guy that took out the Joker? GORDON Yeah...I don't know. BATMAN Harvey! It's good to see you! You're almost as good at disappearing as me. BARBARA Batman, listen. Harvey Dent IS Two Face. BATMAN Harvey is the white knight of Gotham. GORDON'S SON And now he's Two Face. Half of Two Face is Harvey. BATMAN So Harvey...used to be Two Face? TWO FACE NO! I am Two Face! I HAVE TWO FACES! (takes a moment to calm down) Look at me. What do you see. BATMAN Two Face. TWO FACE Okay, good. (turning his face right) Now who do you see? BATMAN Harvey Face. TWO FACE (turning left) And now what do you see? BATMAN Scary face. Oh no! A new villain! Is there no end to the homicidal maniacs Gotham produces? TWO FACE (turning to Batman) And when we put them together... BATMAN Two Face! TWO FACE Yes! BATMAN What have you done with Harvey and Scary Face! They've done nothing to you. TWO FACE OH MY FUCKING GOD! Let's just get this over with. We all have as much chance as Rachel had. 50/50. BATMAN How can we possibly determine that. TWO FACE With a coin flip. BATMAN That's just heads or tails. We'll need 50 coins for that to work. TWO FACE (cringes in frustration) You first. Two face points his gun at batman. FLIPS the coin. HEADS. TWO FACE Everyone cool with a redo? Gordon and his family all nod and agree. Two face flips again. The coin flies in the air. Batman tackles Two Face. They fall over the edge of the burnt wall. Gordon, horrified, RUNS to the edge- peers down- Dent lies at the bottom of the hole, his neck broken. DEAD, scary face side visible. Gordon's son swings into view, HANGING from Batman, who is holding onto a JOIST with all his strength. Batman looks down. BATMAN And thus ends the saga of scary face. GORDON Give me back my son.
