Art of Attraction

HEY, ONE SLIPPERY NAVEL, ONE SEX ON THE BEACH, OH, MY PERSONAL FAVOURITE - PINK PANTY PULLDOWN.
SOUNDS TASTY.
YOU KNOW, I WAS THINKING, LEX, MAYBE YOU AND I COULD GO FOR ONE WHEN THIS IS OVER.
WELL, IT'S A DATE.
WHAT'S HAPPENING DOWN HERE? OKAY.
YOU GOT TWO GUARDS BETWEEN YOU AND THE PAINTING.
YEAH, NOT TO MENTION FOUR SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS AND A MOTION SENSOR SYSTEM.
JUST LIKE WE EXPECTED.
THE GAMES BEGIN.
[WHISPERING] 'KAY, GUYS.
MAKING MY WAY OVER.
LET'S MOVE.
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING? UM, EXCUSE ME? YOU TOUCHED ME.
DID YOU SEE THAT? HE TOUCHED ME.
HEY, I I DIDN'T.
YOU PIG! KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF! COULD SOMEBODY HELP ME? THIS GUY'S A PERVERT! I DIDN'T TOUCH HER, I SWEAR! YEAH, THAT'S WHAT THEY ALL SAY.
I DIDN'T I DIDN'T TOUCH HER.
YEAH, SURE.
I'M IN.
OKAY.
TAKE YOUR NEXT RIGHT.
THE DOOR SHOULD BE RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU.
YEAH, LOOK OUT FOR A GUARD WHO'S HEADING YOUR WAY.
WHOA, LEX - SOMETHING'S WRONG.
YOU GOT COMPANY.
HURRY, JESS, GIVE ME THE CODE.
I'M IN.
BAD IDEA.
THAT'S MINE.
LEXA, TALK TO ME.
YOU OKAY? NOTHING I CAN'T HANDLE.
[ALARM] COPPERS ON THE WAY, LEXA.
GET OUT OF THERE.
THIS WAS FUN.
BUT YOU CROSS ME AGAIN AND YOU WON'T WALK AWAY.
SCIENTIST ADAM KANE WAS A PIONEER OF GENETIC RESEARCH, MANIPULATING DNA TO SAVE HUMAN LIVES.
BUT IN MANY, THEIR GENES UNEXPECTEDLY MUTATED AND THEY DEVELOPED SUPERHUMAN ABILITIES.
TOGETHER, FOUR OF THE MOST POWERFUL FIGHT TO PROTECT A WORLD THAT DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THEY EXIST.
THEY ARE HE THREW OUT SOME KIND OF DARK MATTER, LIKE ANTI-ENERGY.
HIS PRESENCE WAS UNEXPECTED, EVEN BY US.
YEAH.
WELL, BECAUSE OF HIM, I COULDN'T GET TO THE PAINTING.
THEN YOU TRY AGAIN.
THAT PAINTING CONCEALS A SECRET THAT MUST REMAIN HIDDEN TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD.
EXCUSE ME, BUT AFTER THE FIRST TRY THEIR SECURITY'S GOING TO BE ALL OVER IT.
YOUR PRESENCE WAS NOT OBSERVED.
WE WIPED THE SECURITY SURVEILLANCE, SO THE GALLERY BELIEVES YOUR INTRUSION WAS SIMPLY A FALSE ALARM.
YEAH, BUT STILL, WITHOUT A PARTY AS A DISTRACTION YOU'LL FIND A WAY.
THAT'S NOT BAD.
IT'S GOT DEFINITE ECHOES OF THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE.
IT'S NOT THE ARTWORK WE'RE AFTER, IT'S WHAT'S CODED WITHIN THE CANVAS.
AND THAT WOULD BE? THE KEY TO AN UNDISCOVERED TECHNOLOGY, THAT COULD THREATEN THE WORLD'S SECURITY.
SEE, WHEN THE SCIENTIST WHO OWNED THE PAINTING DIED, HIS FAMILY LIQUIDATED THE ESTATE.
AND WE GOTTA GET TO THIS PAINTING BEFORE OUR PARTY CRASHER GETS TO IT FIRST.
SO WHAT HAVE WE FOUND OUT ABOUT OUR RIVAL THIEF? NOTHING SO FAR.
I MEAN, WHATEVER HIS POWER IS, HE SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO COUNTERACT ENERGY.
GUY LOOKS PRETTY SMOOTH.
VERY SMOOTH.
LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE HAVING A HARD TIME FIGHTING HIM OFF, LEXA.
I'LL GET HIM NEXT TIME.
WHAT NEXT TIME? LOOK, HE'S GOING TO MAKE A MOVE FOR THE PAINTING AGAIN.
I PLAN ON BEATING HIM TO IT.
I'LL HAVE BRENNAN RUN OUR ROMEO THROUGH THE MUTANT DATABASE.
I'M GOING TO START MONITORING THE SECURITY SYSTEM AT THE GALLERY.
OKAY? LET'S GO.
HOLD ON.
HELLO, SHALIMAR.
WHO ARE YOU? A FRIEND.
FRIENDS SHOW THEMSELVES.
IN TIME.
WHAT DO YOU WANT? THERE'S MORE TO THE PAINTING THAN YOU'VE BEEN TOLD.
SO, WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME ABOUT IT? THE SCIENTIST WHO OWNED IT WAS NAMED ILLICH SEFCHEK.
FIND OUT WHO HE WAS.
HE REPRESENTS THE KEY TO UNDERSTANDING WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON.
NICE TRY.
BUT IT WILL TAKE SANCTUARY'S SYSTEM AT LEAST THIRTY MORE SECONDS TO TRIANGULATE MY SIGNAL.
GOODBYE, SHALIMAR.
WAIT! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS? 380735.
REMEMBER THAT.
BRENNAN, WE'RE IN.
OKAY, I'VE HACKED INTO THE GALLERY'S SECURITY SYSTEM.
OH, JUST IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING, I HAVE AN UPDATE ON YOUR, UH, MYSTERY MUTANT.
TURNS OUT HE'S AN INTERNATIONAL THIEF SPECIALIZING IN HIGH-END ART.
TAKE A LOOK, GUYS.
I'M THROWING HIM AT YOU.
HIS NAME'S RANDALL BLAKE.
YEAH, AND ACCORDING TO HIS DOSSIER, HE'S, UH, QUITE THE LADY-KILLER.
HE'S MADE A CAREER OUT OF STEALING PAINTINGS AND HEARTS.
WELL, THAT'S GOOD TO KNOW, ISN'T IT, LEX? OH, NO! BLAKE'S ALREADY HERE.
WHERE? RIGHT THERE.
I'VE GOT TO GET IN THERE BEFORE HE DOES.
WELL, HOW? GUYS, GIVE ME BLAKE'S LOCATION.
HE'S HEADING UP THE BACK STAIRCASE, RIGHT TOWARDS YOU.
YOU BETTER HURRY, LEX, IT'S GOING TO BE TIGHT.
I THINK IT'S TIME FOR YOUR BREAK.
JESS, WHAT'S GOING ON? THE CODE'S NOT WORKING.
UH, THEY MUST HAVE CHANGED IT.
FEED ME THE NEW ONE.
LOOK, IT COULD TAKE ME HOURS TO BREAK INTO SECURITY DATABASE AGAIN.
WELL, I CAN'T STAY INVISIBLE FOREVER.
TRY 380735.
WHERE'D YOU GET THAT? JUST DO IT.
THAT'S IT.
I'M IN.
COME ON, YOU'VE ONLY GOT A FEW SECONDS.
I BELIEVE THAT BELONGS TO ME.
POSSESSION IS NINE-TENTHS OF THE LAW.
YOU'RE NOT OUT OF HERE YET.
BESIDES, THERE ARE THREE PAINTINGS TO THE SET, AND I ALREADY HAVE ONE OF THEM.
SO IT WON'T DO MUCH GOOD WITHOUT THIS, THEN, WILL IT? I WARNED YOU NOT TO GET IN MY WAY.
YOU KNOW, IF YOU DIDN'T WANT ME AROUND, YOU COULDA JUST SAID SO.
GIVE UP NOW.
YOU CAN'T HOLD OUT AS LONG AS I CAN.
BECAUSE I'M NOT A GOOD GIRL.
EVEN BETTER.
YOU JUST HAD TO DO IT ALONE, DIDN'T YOU? DID YOU GET THE PAINTING? YEAH.
ONE OF THEM.
WHY WEREN'T WE TOLD THERE WERE THREE PAINTINGS TO BEGIN WITH? WELL, MAYBE THE GUY'S BLUFFING.
AT THIS POINT I WOULDN'T PUT ANYTHING PAST HIM.
YEAH, THAT'S WHAT I SAID, BUT LEXA SEEMS TO FEEL THIS GUY'S ON THE LEVEL.
WELL, WE'LL FIND OUT SOON ENOUGH.
I'M RUNNING AN INFRARED IMAGE OF THE PICTURE, SEE WHAT WE GET.
OH, THERE IT IS.
WHAT DO YOU THINK? OH, WELL, IT'S A CODE.
UH, LOOKS LIKE IT'S SOME KIND OF FORMULA.
BUT NO, THE CODE'S INCOMPLETE.
I'D GUESS THAT EACH PAINTING REPRESENTS ANOTHER LAYER TO THE FORMULA.
SEPARATELY THEY'RE WORTHLESS.
WE NEED ALL THREE.
WELL, BLAKE SAYS HE HAS ONE OF THE PAINTINGS.
AND HE KNOWS WHERE THE THIRD ONE IS.
WELL, ACCORDING TO MY MATH, THAT MEANS WE'RE RIGHT BACK TO SQUARE ONE, DOESN'T IT? NO, NOT NECESSARILY.
HIS BUYER'S GOING TO NEED ALL THREE, AS MUCH AS WE DO.
IT'S ANYBODY'S GAME RIGHT NOW.
HE NEEDS US AS MUCH AS WE NEED HIM.
WAIT A MINUTE.
HE THINKS I'M A RIVAL THIEF, RIGHT? WHAT IF I CONVINCE HIM TO PARTNER UP AND SPLIT THE PROFITS OF THE THREE PAINTINGS.
OH, HO HO, WE ARE NOT JUST GOING TO JUMP INTO BED WITH THIS GUY.
SPEAK FOR YOURSELF.
HMM.
WHAT? ARE WE ALL TAKING CRAZY PILLS HERE? WELL, LOOKS LIKE BLAKE'S GOT A PLACE HERE IN TOWN.
WHAT, IS HE LISTED IN THE YELLOW PAGES? NO.
HE OWNS A BAR DOWNTOWN UNDER ONE OF HIS ALIASES.
THE BRASSERIE DU BOHEME.
I GUESS HIS LOVE OF ART GOES DEEPER THAN CAT BURGLARY.
LEXA, WHY ARE YOU SO EAGER TO FACE THIS GUY AGAIN? I MEAN, HE TRIED TO KILL YOU, YOU REMEMBER THAT? LISTEN, IF HE WANTED ME DEAD, HE WOULD'VE TRIED A LOT HARDER.
WHATCHA WORKIN' ON? ILLICH SEFCHEK.
WHO DAT? NOT SURE.
HUH.
WELL, FIRST YOU PULL THE CODE FOR GETTING INTO THE GALLERY OUT OF THIN AIR AND NOW YOU'RE, WELL, LOOKING UP RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS.
WELL, CAN I BUY A CLUE? OKAY.
I DIDN'T KNOW WHETHER TO BELIEVE IT OR NOT, BUT I GOT A CALL FROM SOMEONE ON OUR INTERNAL LINE.
DIDN'T GIVE ME A NAME, JUST GAVE ME THE CODE.
JUST LIKE THAT? WELL, HE SAID THERE WAS MORE TO THE STORY OF THE PAINTINGS THAN WE WERE BEING TOLD.
SAID I SHOULD LOOK UP THIS GUY, SEFCHEK.
YOU TRIED TRACING THE CALL? 'COURSE.
WELL, HE MUST HAVE KNOWN BEFOREHAND BECAUSE HE KEPT BOUNCING THE SIGNAL ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
WELL, SOUNDS LIKE THIS GUY'S KINDA GOT YOU FREAKED OUT.
WELL, I I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK.
I MEAN, HE SAID HE WAS A FRIEND.
HE SPOKE LIKE HE KNEW ME.
DON'T WORRY.
NEXT TIME THIS GUY CALLS WE'LL BE THE ONES MESSING WITH HIS HEAD.
THAT COULD BE YOU.
WHAT? YOU WERE EXPECTING ME? I KNEW YOU COULDN'T STAY AWAY.
OH.
SO, YOU LIKE IT? YEAH.
WHO'S THE ARTIST? ME.
IT'S AN EARLY PIECE, BUT IT LACKS IN COURAGE.
IT'S FUNNY, I NEVER TOOK YOU TO BE THE MODEST TYPE.
ONLY WHEN IT COMES TO MY ART.
LET'S JUST KEEP THIS BUSINESS.
I'M LISTENING.
YOU HAVE ONE PAINTING.
I HAVE ONE.
THIRD ONE'S STILL UP FOR GRABS.
AND YOUR POINT IS? DOESN'T TAKE A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO REALIZE THE REAL DEAL HERE, IS BY DELIVERING UP THE COMPLETE SET.
YEAH, WELL, MY BUYER IS WILLING TO PAY NORTH OF FIVE MILLION.
I WANT IN.
[SNIFFS] AND JUST WHY WOULD I DO THAT? BECAUSE YOU'LL NEVER GET YOUR HANDS ON THE COMPLETE SET WITHOUT ME.
LET'S DO IT.
GOOD.
OH - BUT FIRST - I WANT TO SEE YOUR PAINTING.
JUST TO VERIFY IT.
OKAY.
YOU SHOW ME YOURS, I'LL SHOW YOU MINE.
[ALARM] BRENNAN! COME HERE.
IT'S HIM.
HELLO, SHALIMAR.
WHAT DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT THE LEAD I GAVE YOU? HE'S THE CHEMICAL ENGINEER SPECIALISING IN ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH.
EXACTLY.
AND THE PAINTING? WHAT DID YOU GET FROM THE SCANS? WELL, WE'RE NOT SURE YET.
THE PAINTINGS ARE THE KEY TO THE WHOLE PUZZLE.
IT'S IMPERATIVE WE FIND OUT WHAT THEY'RE HIDING.
LOOK, WHY DON'T YOU JUST TELL ME WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT? WHY DON'T YOU ASK BRENNAN? I'M SURE HE'S FULL OF BRIGHT IDEAS.
WHAT THE HELL? HE'S IN OUR SYSTEM.
WHAT'D HE GET? HE'S TRYING TO ACCESS THE SCAN OF THE PAINTING.
I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH OF THE FILE HE WAS ABLE TO DOWNLOAD.
HOW THE HELL DID HE GET INTO OUR SYSTEM IN THE FIRST PLACE? HOW DOES HE KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT US? DAMMIT.
TELL ME THAT WE ARE NOT JUST GOING TO HAND THIS PAINTING OVER TO HIM.
[SIGHS] IT'LL NEVER LEAVE MY SIGHT, OKAY? AND ONCE I GET IN THERE, I CAN GET A LOOK AT HIS PAINTING.
THAT WAY, I CAN GET INFORMATION FROM BOTH.
YEAH, BUT ONCE HE GETS HIS HANDS ON OUR PAINTING, HE'S NOT GOING TO NEED YOU ANYMORE.
I TOLD YOU I CAN HANDLE THIS.
I HEARD YOU.
LOOK, I'M COMING ALONG THIS TIME.
NO ARGUMENTS.
[PLAYBACK] THE PAINTINGS ARE THE KEY TO THE WHOLE PUZZLE.
NOW REMOVE THE VOCAL PATTERN.
SEE WHAT ELSE WE CAN HEAR.
[BACKGROUND NOISE] WHAT IS THAT? SOUNDS LIKE THE CALL CAME FROM A RESTAURANT.
YOU NARROW IT DOWN A LITTLE FURTHER? TRYING.
[VOICE] CHINA KITCHEN, PLEASE HOLD.
NICE.
SOUNDS LIKE OUR SECRET ADMIRER HAS A PENCHANT FOR CHINESE FOOD.
YOU IN THE MOOD FOR TAKEOUT? NOT THE KIND OF PARTY I HAD IN MIND.
THIS IS JESSE.
HE'S MY BACKUP.
COME WITH ME.
I HAVE A DIGITAL SCANNER IN THE BACK.
WE COULD VERIFY MY PAINTING FIRST.
IF YOU LIKE.
HERE WE GO.
BE MY GUEST.
NOW YOUR TURN.
SO IT'S TRUE.
WHAT WE HAVE REPRESENTS TWO-THIRDS OF THE PUZZLE.
SO WHEN DO WE MOVE ON THE LAST PAINTING? "WE" DON'T MOVE ON ANYTHING.
I'M WORKING HERE WITH LEXA -- ALONE.
DON'T NEED ANY MORE BAGGAGE.
LISTEN, BUDDY HEY, JESSE JESS? JUST TAKE THE PAINTING.
I'LL CONTACT YOU WHEN WE'RE READY TO MOVE, OKAY? YEAH.
UH, DON'T WORRY, JESS.
I'LL BE GENTLE WITH HER.
OH, WHAT DID YOU THINK, SHAL, THAT HE WAS JUST GOING TO SIT AROUND AND WAIT UNTIL HE GOT THE ITCH TO CALL AGAIN? I DON'T KNOW.
I GUESS I WAS HOPING I'D AT LEAST FIND SOME CLUE TO HIS IDENTITY.
[PAYPHONE RINGS] HELLO? YOU'VE MANAGED TO GET CLOSE.
WHERE ARE YOU? HE MUST BE WATCHING US.
ARE YOU ANY CLOSER TO RECOVERING THE OTHER TWO PAINTINGS? WE'RE WORKING ON IT.
THE INFORMATION CAN'T GET INTO THE WRONG HANDS.
WHAT WOULD AN ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTIST HAVE THAT'D BE A RISK TO NATIONAL SECURITY? ARE YOU READY FOR THE ANSWER? YEAH, WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? CALL IS COMING FROM THAT WINDOW.
[PARROT] GOOD WORK, SHALIMAR.
GOOD WORK, SHALIMAR.
WELL, UNLESS YOU AND YOUR FINE FEATHERED FRIEND HERE GO WAY BACK, OUR INFORMANT KNEW WE WERE GOING TO BE HERE.
YEAH, I KNOW, BUT HOW? THE ONLY WAY I FOUND HIM WAS THROUGH MY FERAL HEARING.
HE ANTICIPATED IT? HE DEFINITELY KNOWS OUR MOVES.
THAT'S HOW HE'S ABLE TO STAY THREE STEPS AHEAD OF US.
I SAY WE GO CHECK OUT THESE LITTLE DOOR PRIZES THAT THEY LEFT FOR US.
AWK! AWK! A BAR OWNER, A CAT BURGLAR, AND AN ARTIST.
TELL ME, WHO'S THE REAL RANDELL BLAKE? ALL THREE.
BAR KEEPS ME LEGIT, THE BURGLARY KEEPS THE DOORS OPEN, AND PAINTING AH, THE PAINTING FEEDS MY SOUL.
AND THAT'S IMPORTANT TO YOU? THE REST OF IT IS JUST SURVIVING.
ART IS LIFE.
OH, I DIDN'T REALISE I'D BE GETTING A FREE LESSON IN PHILOSOPHY.
ARE YOU ALWAYS THIS COCKY? NO.
I'M WORSE ON THE JOB.
YEAH, WELL, I HOPE YOU'RE AS GOOD AS YOU THINK YOU ARE.
THE LAST PAINTING OF THE TRILOGY IS THE HARDEST OF ALL.
OKAY.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING AT HERE? BANK, STATE OF THE ART SECURITY, WHAT? WORSE.
IT'S PART OF SOMEONE'S PRIVATE COLLECTION.
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF SLAVA CHEYKYNOV? SHOULD I? SLAVA'S A MAJOR PLAYER IN THE RUSSIAN MOB.
PAINTING'S STORED IN HIS MANSION.
'KAY.
HOW HARD'S IT GOING TO BE TO BREAK IN? HE'S GOT A SMALL ARMY PROTECTING HIM AND HIS TOYS.
A COCKROACH COULDN'T GET IN.
IS THIS MAKING A DENT WITH YOU AT ALL? I MEAN, THIS JOB IS ABOUT AS DEADLY AS IT GETS.
YOU SAY IT LIKE IT'S A BAD THING.
DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE TO YOU? WELL, IN A MINUTE.
AS SOON AS THE COMPUTER FINISHES [SIGHS] WELL, WHAT IS IT? WELL, IT LOOKS LIKE A PROPOSAL BY THE SCIENTIST WHO OWNED THOSE PAINTINGS.
HE THOUGHT HE COULD CREATE AN ALTERNATIVE TO FOSSIL FUEL.
COST-EFFICIENT METHOD OF PROCESSING WATER INTO HYDROGEN POWER.
[LAUGHS] WOW.
CLEAN, SAFE, CHEAP FUEL FOR THE WHOLE WORLD.
AM I STUPID, OR IS THIS THE BREAKTHROUGH WE'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR, FOR THE LAST FIFTY YEARS? DON'T ANSWER THAT.
SO THIS IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT, HUH? THINK HE ACTUALLY MADE IT WORK? WHO KNOWS.
BUT I BET HE HID THAT FORMULA IN THOSE THREE PAINTINGS.
JESS, YOU GETTING THIS? -OH, YEAH.
NO WONDER SOMEBODY'S TRYING TO SUPPRESS IT.
YOU KNOW, I'D BET THE HELIX THAT WHOEVER'S PAYING BLAKE HAS GOT TENTACLES CONNECTED TO THE OIL INDUSTRY IN SOME WAY.
YEAH, WELL, THIS INFORMATION IS WAY TOO VALUABLE FOR US TO LET IT SLIP THROUGH OUR FINGERS.
THE ONLY PROBLEM IS, WE ONLY HAVE ONE-THIRD OF THE EQUATION.
I'M GOING TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT WHAT WE GOT.
SEE IF MAYBE I MISSED SOMETHING THAT COULD LEAD US TO THE LAST PAINTING.
YOU KNOW WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS, IS WHY DID THE DOMINION LIE TO US IN THE FIRST PLACE, RIGHT? THEY THEY SAID THIS THIS TECHNOLOGY COULD JEOPARDISE WORLD SECURITY.
WELL, EVERYTHING ALWAYS BOILS DOWN TO MONEY.
HUH, I DON'T KNOW WHO TO BELIEVE ANYMORE.
BUT I DO PLAN ON ASKING SOME QUESTIONS.
HEY, NOT SO FAST.
LEXA'S THE ONLY ONE WITH AN ALL-ACCESS PASS TO THE DOMINION.
WELL, MAYBE WE ADD OUR NAME TO THE LIST.
NO, IT'S NOT THAT EASY.
WE NEED ACCESS CODES.
I MEAN, CALLING THE DOMINION ISN'T LIKE PICKING UP THE PHONE AND DIALING 911.
WELL, IF WE CAN'T CALL THEM, MAYBE WE SHOULD GET THEM TO CALL US.
I THOUGHT YOU SAID THIS PLACE WAS LIKE GETTING INTO FORT KNOX.
IT IS.
FORTUNATELY, WHAT WE'RE HERE FOR IS A LOT EASIER TO MOVE THAN TWO TON OF GOLD BULLION.
HOW MANY MEN DOES SLAVA KEEP ON STAFF? NOT SURE.
NO ONE'S EVER MADE IT OUT ALIVE.
GOOD.
I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING THE FIRST.
YOU REALLY ARE FEARLESS.
IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO PLAY IT.
WHAT I WOULD GIVE TO CAPTURE THAT PASSION ON CANVAS.
I'M SURE YOU WOULD.
LEXA, WE NEED TO TALK - NOW.
A LITTLE MORE WINE, MAYBE? YEAH.
THIS BETTER BE GOOD, JESS.
I'M WORKING HERE.
YEAH.
YOUR BOYFRIEND PULLED A FAST ONE ON US.
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? WELL, HE SWITCHED THE PAINTINGS.
I'M LOOKING AT A COUNTERFEIT.
THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE.
-OH, IT IS.
I JUST RE-SCANNED IT.
NOW YOU TRY AND TELL ME IF HE DOESN'T HAVE YOUR HEAD ALL TURNED AROUND.
YOU'RE WRONG.
ALL RIGHT, WELL, THEN YOU EXPLAIN IT, BECAUSE THE LEXA I KNOW WOULDN'T DROP HER GUARD FOR A MINUTE FOR SOME LOW-LIFE, SMOOTH-TALKING LET IT GO, JESS.
I'LL GET IT BACK.
HOW? I GOT IT COVERED.
[SIGHS] SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING DOWN THERE, BABE? I MEAN, WE CAN CALL JESSE.
OH, JESSE, JESSE, JESSE.
MAN, I MEAN, HE'S NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH A BRAIN AROUND HERE.
I'M JUST SAYING YOU DON'T EXACTLY HAVE A DEGREE IN ELECTRONICS.
OOH, HEY, LOOK AT THAT.
THAT'S MY DIPLOMA, OKAY? LOOK, ALL I'M TRYING TO DO IS TRIGGER AN ALARM IN THE ENCRYPTION DEVICE.
THAT'LL GIVE THEM A REASON TO RESPOND.
[ALARM] NICE WORK.
WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING? WE NEED TO TALK.
WE WANT SOME ANSWERS.
THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS.
OH, IT IS NOW, CHIEF.
UNLESS YOU WANT WHATEVER IT IS WE FIND PUBLISHED IN THE DAILY TIMES.
WHAT IS IT THAT YOU REQUIRE? A FACE TO FACE.
WE'VE GOT QUESTIONS.
YOU'VE GOT ANSWERS.
TWO HOURS.
THE ALLEY BETWEEN DIVISION AND THIRD.
WELL, THAT WASN'T SO DIFFICULT.
THAT'S WHAT WORRIES ME.
THAT HURTS.
SORRY.
WHAT'S THE MATTER? DON'T YOU TRUST ME? THERE, ALL BETTER.
SO, UM, WHILE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT OF TRUST WHEN WERE YOU GOING TO TELL ME YOU STOLE MY PAINTING? I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
LET'S TRY THIS ONCE AGAIN.
OR ARE YOU LOOKING FOR SOME FREE LASER SURGERY? HEY, YOU DO IT, AND YOU'LL NEVER SEE ANY OF THOSE PAINTINGS AGAIN.
I TAKE IT WE'RE PARTNERS? THAT'S RIGHT.
SPLITTING EVERYTHING RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE.
THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO HEAR.
THIS WAS A VERY RISKY MANEUVER ON YOUR PART.
I ASSUME MISS PIERCE HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR ACTIONS.
WE DON'T ANSWER TO HER.
CLEARLY.
IT WAS FOOLISH TO SUGGEST YOU WOULD REVEAL THE FORMULA TO THE WORLD.
WE DON'T TAKE KINDLY TO BLACKMAIL.
YOU LIED TO US.
YOU SAID THIS WAS A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY.
WE ANTICIPATED YOUR RESPONSE TO THE REAL NATURE OF THE TECHNOLOGY AND TOLD YOU WHAT YOU NEEDED TO DO THE JOB.
AT LEAST YOU ADMIT THAT YOU TRIED TO PLAY US.
WE DIRECTED YOU.
THAT'S OUR ROLE.
DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU RELEASED THAT FORMULA? OH, I DON'T KNOW.
THE WORLD WOULD HAVE AN ENDLESS SUPPLY OF POLLUTION-FREE FUEL? AND THE IMPACT OF THAT TECHNOLOGY WOULD CAUSE A SHIFT IN THE BALANCE OF WORLD POWERS OVERNIGHT.
WHOLE ECONOMIES COLLAPSING.
DECADES OF WAR AND MILLIONS OF LIVES LOST BEFORE ORDER WOULD BE RESTORED.
WOULD ANY OF THAT FIT INTO THE CATEGORY OF THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY? SO YOU ARE GOING TO BURY THE FORMULA? WE WILL RELEASE IT WHEN THE WORLD IS READY.
THESE KINDS OF CHANGES TAKE CAREFUL PLANNING.
THE DOMINION HAS CONTROLLED THE EVOLUTION OF TECHNOLOGY FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS.
THIS CONVERSATION IS OVER.
THINK AGAIN.
I DIDN'T SIGN ON TO BE YOUR PUPPET.
SO YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE US EVERYTHING YOU KNOW FROM NOW ON.
YOU'RE IN NO POSITION TO MAKE DEMANDS.
I'LL ADVISE YOU TO BACK AWAY SLOWLY.
THERE ARE TEN WEAPONS SIGHTED ON YOU RIGHT NOW.
FIGURE HE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH? DOESN'T MATTER.
FIRST WE GOT TO FOCUS ON FINDING THOSE OTHER PAINTINGS.
WE'LL FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH THEM LATER.
TOOK YOU LONG ENOUGH.
[SIGHS] DID WHAT I HAD TO DO.
YEAH.
I KNOW.
SO HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET THE PAINTINGS? RIGHT AFTER THE JOB TONIGHT.
I ATTACHED A TRACKER TO THE BACK OF HIS EARLOBE.
HOW'D YOU DO THAT? I DON'T WANT TO KNOW.
I'M SURE YOU DON'T.
JUST KEEP YOUR EYE ON HIS EVERY MOVE, OKAY? OH, I INTEND TO.
HERE WE GO.
SURE MAKES GETTING AROUND EASY, HUH? YEAH.
THE PAINTING IS IN THE SECOND LEVEL STUDY.
YEAH, WE HAVE TO GET PAST THE GUARD STATION FIRST.
EXACTLY.
YOU READY TO MOVE? YEAH.
WHAT'S THAT? [DOG BARKING] TASHA! WHAT ARE YOU BARKING AT? THERE'S NOTHING THERE.
COME ON, THERE IS NOTHING THERE.
COME ON.
[DOG BARKING] YOU DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT A DOG.
THAT A PROBLEM? YEAH.
I DON'T DO DOG.
LEX, I'VE HACKED THE SECURITY SYSTEM YOU GOT A GUARD UP AHEAD OF YOU.
TEN METRES AWAY.
SECOND FLOOR SHOULD BE CLEAR.
WELL, GUESS AGAIN.
THERE'S A GUARD HEADING OUR WAY.
HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT? GIRL'S GOTTA HAVE HER LITTLE SECRETS.
NOW THE HARD PART.
THE PAINTING'S PROTECTED BY A HIGH END LASER SYSTEM.
A STRONG BREEZE COULD TRIGGER IT.
JUST LET ME IN.
I'LL TAKE CARE OF THE REST.
CAN YOU HANDLE IT? OF COURSE.
JUST STAY WITH ME.
I'D LOVE TO.
BRENNAN, KEEP AN EYE ON LEXA.
I DON'T TRUST THIS GUY AS FAR AS I CAN SEE HIM.
I HEAR YOU.
WE'RE ON IT.
[ALARM] WHAT ARE YOU DOING? SORRY, ANGEL.
I'M GONNA MISS YOU.
TRUST ME, I'LL BE SEEING YOU AGAIN.
[ALARM] GUYS, I NEED HELP HERE QUICK.
GONE! WHAT THE HELL? GUYS, WE GOTTA GO.
DID YOU GET IT? ONE DOWN, AND TWO TO GO.
WHERE'S BLAKE? HE'S ON HIS WAY TO THE TRAIN STATION.
WHAT DO YOU SAY WE MAKE SURE HE HAS SOME COMPANY? OH, YEAH.
LOOKS LIKE THE FOURTH ONE FROM THE RIGHT, TOP ROW.
FOUR? I'M SORRY.
I'M NOT USUALLY THIS CLUMSY.
NO PROBLEM.
WOULD YOU MIND GIVING ME A HAND? OF COURSE.
THANKS.
HAVE WE MET? I DON'T THINK SO.
MAYBE I'LL BUMP INTO YOU AGAIN SOME TIME.
IT'S DONE.
DECADES OF WAR AND MILLIONS OF DEATHS.
FOR A SAFE, NON-POLLUTING FUEL.
[SIGHS] WELL, WHAT DO WE DO WITH THEM? TOUGH DECISION.
I KNOW WHAT LEXA'S VOTE WOULD BE, THOUGH.
YEAH.
I SAY WE HOLD ONTO IT.
HMM MM MM.
NOT ENOUGH INFORMATION.
WELL, THEN, WE GET IT.
-NOPE.
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE IT TO THE DOMINION.
LOOK, I TALKED TO SHALIMAR.
SHE AGREES.
RIGHT NOW, WE'RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO TRUST THEM.
BUT, WE WILL MAKE A COPY OF IT FOR HERE IN SANCTUARY, JUST IN CASE.
NO HARD FEELINGS, I HOPE? DIDN'T EXPECT TO SEE YOU SO SOON.
AFTER YOU TRIED TO KILL ME? PLEASE - I KNEW YOU COULD TAKE 'EM IN YOUR SLEEP.
I JUST TRIED TO SLOW YOU DOWN, BUT I COULDN'T EVEN MANAGE THAT, COULD I? MY BUYER WASN'T TOO PLEASED WITH THE FAKE YOU GAVE ME.
NICE WORK.
IT'S A LUCKY THING YOU GOT OUT ALIVE.
SO WE'RE EVEN.
HERE.
I HAVE A PARTING GIFT.
IT'S HOW WE FOUND YOU.
MAYBE I'LL KEEP IT.
IN CASE YOU EVER WANT TO FIND ME AGAIN.
OH, I'LL BE BACK.
REALLY? YEAH.
THERE'S A LITTLE PAINTING OVER HERE I'M JUST DYING TO ADD TO MY COLLECTION.
WELL, WE COULD ALWAYS - [BEEPS] HELLO, SHALIMAR.
YOU'VE CHOSEN TO TRUST THE DOMINION.
YOU TELLING ME THAT WAS THE WRONG THING TO DO? AS FAR AS I KNOW AT THIS POINT, IT WAS THE RIGHT CHOICE.
THEN WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THAT TO START WITH? I DID NOT HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS.
YOU NEEDED TO DISCOVER THE TRUTH ON YOUR OWN.
WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TO TELL ME WHAT I NEED? PATIENCE, SHALIMAR.
YOU'LL FIND OUT SOON ENOUGH.
NEXT TIME WE SPEAK, IT'LL BE IN PERSON.
FINE.
IF THAT'S THE WAY YOU WANT IT.
