Episode Transcript (May Contain Spoilers):
SHANA: Hello, Vigil listeners. My name is Shana, and I’m the producer of Vigil. As many of you have probably heard by now, our host Maria Kennedy was abducted during a recording of an interview for Hero Trackers on June 6th. Local and national authorities have been investigating, but thus far, we’ve received no updates on the whereabouts of Maria in the weeks since her disappearance.
In an effort to find and rescue her, we’re reaching out for help. Many of you have already contacted us with tips and offers of support, and we are so thankful. What we can safely say at this time is: anyone who appeared on the podcast has been cleared of involvement; Vigil is deceased and could not possibly be involved in an abduction that occurred over a year after his death; and the criminal Morse is the primary suspect for this crime. If you have any information on Morse, please contact the authorities directly. We are going to play the recording of the interview during which Maria went missing. We share this with you in hopes that someone out there can hear something we couldn’t. Please be advised that the following may be disturbing to some listeners.
MARIA: Hello. Maria Kennedy here for Hero Trackers, and I’m sitting down with Angle, who is known for her daring takedowns of criminals like Coriolis and Nadir. Thanks for being with us here today.
ANGLE: No problem.
MARIA: You’ve also got a bit of a history with a hero that I ‘ve gotten to know quite well recently…
ANGLE: (Chuckling) I knew you were going to bring this up! Yes, I did do some work with Vigil.
MARIA: (With good humor) Well, it’s hard not to ask when I’ve been hearing your voice in recordings for the past few months!
ANGLE: It wasn’t that many cases. Honestly, considering some of the other heroes we worked with—
[Sounds of static.]
MARIA: I’m so sorry, just one moment. Shana, what’s—
ANGLE: (overlapping) Maria, are you okay?
MORSE: (overlapping) You did not heed the message.
ANGLE: Everyone get down!
MARIA: Angle—
SHANA: Maria!—
[Confusion and exclamations from ANGLE, MARIA, and SHANA.]
MORSE: Now, I must make the code clear.
[MARIA screams.]
SHANA/ANGLE: No! Maria!
MORSE: And now, the liar is gone.
The truth shall be revealed.
Vigil. Is. A. Lie!
[Morse code crescendos, then silence.]
