INT. MINISTÈRE DES AFFAIRES MAGIQUES, MAIN LEVEL—NIGHT
THESEUS exits a meeting room and strides toward LETA, who is waiting for him.
Grindelwald’s rallying. We don’t know where, but we think it’s tonight.
LETA and THESEUS kiss.
Promise me you’ll be careful.
Of course, I’m going to be careful. Listen, I want you to hear this from me. They think that Credence boy might be your missing brother.
My brother is dead. He died. How many times, Theseus?
I know, I know. And the records, the records will prove that, okay? They can’t lie.
THESEUS leaves LETA and joins TRAVERS.
I want every person at that rally arrested. If they resist—
Sir—forgive me . . . but if we go in too heavy, don’t we run the risk of adding to the—
Just do it.
THESEUS catches sight of NEWT-AS-THESEUS and TINA walking, heads down, through the Ministry typing pool. The brothers’ eyes meet.
ANGLE ON NEWT-AS-THESEUS AND TINA.
NEWT-AS-THESEUS grabs TINA’S arm and makes a sharp turn down a corridor. THESEUS sets off in pursuit, leaving LETA and the angry TRAVERS (who hasn’t spotted
NEWT) behind. LETA backs away from the throng and slips through a side door.
INT. MINISTÈRE DES AFFAIRES MAGIQUES, CORRIDOR—NIGHT
NEWT-AS-THESEUS and TINA run along a corridor lined with pictures, the Polyjuice Potion already wearing off NEWT.
I don’t suppose you can Disapparate on Ministry premises in France, can you?
The Potion wears off completely.
Yes, I know. I know there’s—
At once, every portrait along the corridor turns into NEWT. An alarm sounds.
Urgence! Urgence! Un sorcier suivi, Newt Scamander, est entré dans le Ministère! Emergency! Emergency! A tracked wizard, Newt Scamander, has entered the Department
THESEUS moves into shot.
That’s your brother?
Yes—I think I may have mentioned in my letters we have quite a complicated relationship—
NEWT and TINA sprint through a second door, which leads—
INT. MINISTÈRE DES AFFAIRES MAGIQUES, MAILROOM—NIGHT
—into a mailroom. Two elderly PORTERS are pushing mailcarts across the circular room.
Does he want to kill you?
As they sprint past the mailcarts, THESEUS sends a curse after them, sending the mailcart boxes flying. TINA blocks the spell.
He needs to control his temper!
TINA points her wand. THESEUS is slammed down into a high chair that TINA has conjured out of nowhere. Hands bound, THESEUS flies backward on the chair into a meeting room,
where he slams into a wall.
I think that might have been the best moment of my life.
TINA laughs. NEWT and TINA sprint on.
INT. LESTRANGE MAUSOLEUM—NIGHT
An ancient tomb containing many sarcophagi is dominated by the grand marble tomb of LETA’S father.
ABERNATHY and MACDUFF enter carrying the bag retrieved from the French Ministry and remove the elaborate box, which they plant in the mausoleum to be found.
EXT. PÈRE LACHAISE CEMETERY—SHORTLY AFTERWARD—NIGHT
JACOB is panting as he runs through the dark, deserted cemetery, looking for the tomb he saw in the orb. A faint light in the distance shows him the Lestrange
EXT. LESTRANGE MAUSOLEUM—A MINUTE LATER—NIGHT
JACOB reaches the tomb. A stone raven on the lintel.
No answer. He enters.
INT. LESTRANGE MAUSOLEUM—NIGHT
ANGLE ON JACOB entering a small space full of shadows and sarcophagi. A single lamp.
Don’t. Don’t move.
A movement behind him. He whirls around. A silhouetted figure lunges at him.
INT. MINISTÈRE DES AFFAIRES MAGIQUES, RECORDS ROOM ATRIUM—NIGHT
NEWT and TINA turn a corner into a beautiful atrium area in front of towering Art Nouveau doors carved to resemble trees. A very old woman behind a desk bars the way:
