Wonder Woman Post Credits Scene

There wasn’t one, so I wrote one.

INTERIOR. DAY. We’re back in the clothing store. ETTA waits patiently by the changing rooms.

ETTA:

So the Foreign Office says you’re definitely a foreign dignitary and I should be calling you Your Royal Highness…

DIANA:

(from behind curtain) You will call me Diana, please.

The curtain shoots back. DIANA is a vision again, but with one problem, she’s in a gorgeous svelte white brocade, best for a garden party.

ETTA:

Oh! Oh, no, oh, that’s my fault, I’m sorry Your – Diana –

DIANA:

(Confused)

ETTA:

Black. Black. All over. And – a veil.

DIANA:

Black?

ETTA:

Definitely.

DIANA:

In my country we wear white (going back into the change room). We beat drums, light great bonfires and we sing. You must help me, Etta. We must do everything right. Everything correct. As is due for a soldier and a hero who has fallen.

ETTA:

(Etta looks downcast)

DIANA:

(coming back out in the brown suit) But what is the matter? He is to be glorified amongst your heroes, yes? I know there are too many slain in this war for a statue –

ETTA:

(almost crying) But you see miss, he’s a spy, and it’s different. They don’t count the same as soldiers. They can’t do an official burial.

DIANA:

(takes her hand and sits her down) What do you mean?

ETTA:

It’s Official Secrets, you see. If he’s buried with honours word goes in the paper and there are agents here and in Germany, if they got wind of it –

DIANA:

But the war is over

ETTA:

ALMOST over. And – Steve had contacts. Agents in Germany. If anyone sees his face, and knows he was a spy, everyone he ever worked with would be in danger.

DIANA:

(ruefully) Of course.

ETTA:

We’re getting, well – a small ceremony. Just you and me.

DIANA:

What?

ETTA:

His mother’s, she’s in America, she’s very old, she can’t travel. And the man from the foreign office, and perhaps someone from the American Embassy. Mr Churchill wrote a letter –

DIANA:

Sameer? Charlie? The Chief?

ETTA:

They couldn’t get here even if it were safe. They’ve gone to ground. The Germans don’t want anyone to know about what happened in Veld, they’re killing anyone who – (she trails off into tears. Diana holds her tight. A beat.)

I suppose there’s a lot like this now. Just the women, left alone, when their boys don’t come back.

DIANA:

(kindly) But we are not alone, we are together.

ETTA:

(nods happily) Well. Until you go back to your island, anyway.

DIANA:

(deadly serious) Etta Candy, I swear to you: you will never be alone for the rest of your life.

(She clasps Etta’s hand with great intent, one warrior to another)

SMASH CUT back to credits.

  1. Wonderful post credits scene (definitely needed one) 😉 The lesbian innuendos or possible interpretation are intended, right? 😉

  2. btw Alyssia says that Diana is only princess (her mother the Queen is still alive), so the title she would be addresses should be “your Royal Highness” – not Majesty – and Etta as a British citizen should be aware of all this royal etiquette 😉
