- Trains, running dauntless get ready their jumping...holy sh!t.
Starts out the Dauntless running and the sounds of trains, Tris climbs, they show the first jump. Christina and Tris decide to go together. The jump and the look down between the buildings, and the landing. Tris rolls on the landing. Eric announces the jump and we see the hole into Dauntless HQ. Tris climbs on the ledge in a shaky fashion. She smiles as she lands in the net! "What's you get pushed?" says Four!
They discuss her name. I saw the chemistry...
Goes into the cafeteria of Dauntless and then into fight training, a hip grab happens there, and knife scene. Short fast clips of Jeanine Matthews looking at Tris's raven tattoo.
Tris's ear bleeds from knives. It ends with Tris landing three knives in the center of the target.
