Theodora:
[After arriving in Munchkinland in her new form] There's so much good here... It sickens me. [She jumps in front of the Tinkers. They recoil in fright] Still think your wizard can save you? FROM THE LIKES OF ME?! (floats over to some Quadlings) SPEAK UP... or I'll tear out your tongue!

Oz:
[to Glinda] Now who's that?

Theodora:
[faces Oz and Glinda] Don't you recognize me, Wizard? Have I changed so much?

Oz:
[shocked] Theodora?

Theodora:
May I have this dance? [moves her fingers around to levitate Oz up in the air and make him dance like a puppet]

Oz:
Hey! Hey! Whoa! I get it! You're a little upset!

[Theodora continues to make Oz dance]

Glinda:
Theodora, stop. You'll hurt him.

[Theodora uses her powers to throw Oz into a wall. She walks up to him as he is recovering.]

Oz:
Theodora, what happened to you?

Theodora:
You happened to me!

[She conjures up a fireball and is about to throw it at Oz, but Glinda uses her wand to extinguish it.]

Glinda:
This isn't you. It's your sister. She's worked her magic on you. I'd hope you be able to see through her.

Theodora:
Oh, Glinda, so naïve. Just like your father. That's why it was so easy for my sister to kill him.

Glinda:
She only killed a man, not what he believed in.

Female Quadling:
Begone witch, before the wizard makes mush of you.

[The citizens yell at Theodora to leave.]

Theodora:
Oh, how sweet. You all believe in him! Well, so did I once. [to Glinda] And as for you, my pretty one. When I return with my sister and her army, the yellow brick road will be red with the blood of every tinker, farmer, and munchkin in your kingdom.

Glinda:
You underestimate us, Theodora. We are a strong and united people, and now the Wizard is here to lead us.

Theodora:
And as for your Wizard. He will be the first to die, and you will all see that he is nothing but a deceitful, selfish, and extremely mortal man! Give me that! [forces away the female Quadling's broom, turning it black.] It was a broom that you wanted, wasn't it, Wizard? [flies away on the broom cackling]

[Theodora watches Oz and Glinda greeting the people in Evanora's crystal ball]

Evanora:
What's the matter, sister?

Theodora:
[jealously] Look at how happy they all are. Do you think she'll be his Queen?

Evanora:
Well, of course she'll be his Queen. You can't compete with Glinda's charms - no one can.

[Theodora cries, her tears leaving burn scars on her face]

Theodora:
Sister, it hurts!

Evanora:
Such is a broken heart- your precious wizard did that to you.

Theodora:
[turns to her] Make it stop.

Evanora:
Would you like me to? [Theodora pauses; cut to Evanora offering her an enchanted green apple] One bite is all it takes. One bite, and your world will change forever. One bite, and your heart will become impenetrable. One bite, and you and I will finally share the throne. [seeing Theodora's hesitation] Unless you'd rather see Oz and Glinda there? [Theodora grabs the apple and takes a bite. Immediately, the candles go out and a cold wind blows through the room]

Theodora:
[stares up at her sister in realisation] ...You're the wicked one - not Glinda! [Evanora smirks, victorious] Sister, you lied to me!

Evanora:
It's nice, isn't it? How clear everything becomes.

Theodora:
[suddenly begins convulsing with pain and gasping for breath; tearing off her cloak and necklace, she staggers across the room] What is happening to me?!

Evanora:
[chuckling] Oh. It's just your heart withering away. Fear not, Theodora, for soon you will feel nothing at all, except beautiful... Wickedness. [Theodora stumbles across the room, hallucinating about Oz laughing, and collapses behind a table; the fire blazes high. Evanora steps cautiously towards her] Sister...? [she shrieks and recoils as Theodora's hand, now clawed and green-skinned, shoots up and grabs the table, her nails gouging the stone surface. Evanora appears startled as Theodora -still unseen- stands up, casting a menacing silhouette on the wall] Oh, sister... You're hideous. [smiles weakly] I can cast a simple enchantment, and have you looking just the way you were before-

Theodora:
NO! This is who I am now! [flips her wide-brimmed red hat inside out, revealing a black witch's hat] I want him to see me like this! I want him to know that he was the one who made me this way! [cackles madly]

Evanora:
[to herself] Oh, dear...

Theodora:
[Laughing] OUT OF MY WAY! [flies into the city centre on her broom, causing the citizens to jump aside in fright; she lands in front of Glinda, stares at her for a moment, then kneels so that they are eye-to-eye] Give up, Glinda. Why do you continue to resist?

Glinda:
Because I believe in the Wizard.

Theodora:
[her face darkens with hatred and rage] So did I, once. Behold. [she stands up, pointing to Oz's balloon full of stolen gold, rising over the city] LOOK! Your Wizard! [Glinda stares at the balloon in disbelief]

Citizen #1:
Where is he going?

Citizen #2:
[sadly] He's abandoning us!

Citizen #3:
[sadly] How could he?

[Knuck, the Master Tinker and Finley all watch in disappointment. Suddenly, an enraged Theodora conjures a red fireball and hurls it at the balloon]

Glinda:
No!

[The balloon is hit by the fireball and explodes in a burst of flame, raining gold coins over the center of the square. The crowd reacts with horror as the burning balloon crashes down on the heap of gold]

China Girl:
No! [starts to cry]

Evanora:
[mockingly] Ohh... Not so Great and Powerful, after all.

[Theodora stares impassively at the bonfire as Glinda and the citizens cry quietly. As the Winkees begin to move the crowds back, Finley flies over to the wreckage and retrieves Oz's smoking top hat; he clutches it and begins to cry. A Winkee guard walks over to him]

Winkee:
Hey- [Finley looks up, and the Winkee pulls back the brim of his helmet to reveal Oz, grinning] Hello, Monkey.

Finley:
Oz! [beams, hugs him] I thought you were dead-

Oz:
Shhh... You were crying pretty hard- was that for me?

Finley:
Oh... no, some of the smoke got in my eyes!

Oz:
[laughs, unconvinced] Oh, right.

Finley:
Wow, you fooled everybody - That was your greatest trick yet!

Oz:
[grins] That was just the opening act!

Evanora:
[to the Citizens] Let this be the final word! [Oz and Finley glance nervously in her direction as she and Theodora step forward on either side of Glinda] Your prophecy is dead. Like the king who spoke it, and the wizard who tried to fulfill it! All dead!

Oz:
[to Finley] It's showtime. [leads him towards the projection-booth carriage, where the Master Tinker and Knuck are gesturing for them]

Theodora:
[to the Citizens] And they will be joined in death, by Glinda the Good! [The citizens watch sadly as Theodora and Evanora close on Glinda] Farewell.

Evanora:
Say hello to your daddy for me. [she and Theodora conjure green lightning and red flames, respectively, and begin charging up their magical energies for the killing blow]

Glinda:
The dreams of the people live on.

[Just as Theodora and Evanora are about to strike, all the torches around the square are instantly extinguished]
