Below is a response to a Screenwriting course I am taking. Read on it you'd like. :)
Hallucinates in hospital
Seeks extra treatment
Ignores Connor's attempts to talk
Finds "Wake Up" message on napkin
Another hallucination with Connor involved
Denies him telling her she's not crazy
Finds words Wake and Up circled in the newspaper
Questions herself, considers Connor's words
Doesn't take medication
Talkswith Connor, clear minded
Fights in next hallucination with Connor
Deidre is aware of both her wants at the beginning and the end of the pilot episode, when she is "asleep" and "awake."
Deidre wants to be normal and accepted, to get better. The hallucinations are what kept her from having a home. She is cautious, especially when on the drugs they tell her she needs. She is a little lost with all that is going on, but starts to trust Connor after the drugs wear off. Once she discovers she really isn't crazy, she becomes much more engaged, intellectually. We later learn that she was involved in some sort of sport before the hallucinations started. An average to above average student.
Another person would probably describe the character as unsure of herself at first. She's just discovered that a huge part about herself has been a lie and is now thrust into a new world. She has trust issues, even with Connor, who helps her escape the hospital. As well as issues trusting herself. She will constantly be learning about herself and what she's capable of after she wakes up from the fog of the drugs and lies. Though she is cautious, she doesn't allow it to hinder the loyalty she will develop for those who do help her along the way. She will be eager to learn, and discover what she can and can't do, find her strengths.
