Big Sky (2020) s02e14 Episode Script

Dead Man's Float

1 Previously on "Big Sky" Bomb! You got no one to watch your back - while I'm in here.
- I got Travis.
Promise you'll watch your back with him, too.
We should be able to produce about 4,000 pills an hour.
What's the ETA on the first shipment? Should be ready by tomorrow morning.
Why are you stopping? Guessing there's a side of drugs with all these steaks? I lost a shipment.
The truck was hijacked.
You thinking this is cartel-related? Can't say I'd be shocked.
Why are we pulling out of Canada? Things change.
Just tell us what's going on.
Reenu, I said eat.
Kate Garza.
Travis turned her into his informant, and then he fell in love with her.
Veer had her killed.
And Travis is trying to find out? I believe he wants more than that.
We're just gonna kill you, then dissolve your body in acid.
You let them kill me, you're never gonna figure out my secret.
What do you think is gonna save your life? Stone is a cop.
I believe you know Bob.
He said some really interesting things about you.
- Are you a cop? - No.
Come on, you know me.
- Do I? - Would a cop do this? - Morning.
- Morning.
You gonna tell me what we're doing all the way out here? Do you trust me, Jenny? Do I trust you? The words every woman loves to hear.
What is it you want to show me? What the hell is this? - That's Robert MacIntyre.
- Yeah, Survivalist Bob.
I know.
He's killed two of my deputies.
What's he doing in the back of your truck? I've been instructed to disappear this man.
- The Bhullars? - Yeah.
And I thought I'd save you the trouble of looking for him.
You can't expect me to let you walk off and bury him.
Well, it's not up to you, Jenny.
What is happening to you, Travis? Are you so far gone that you don't understand how insane this is? Wait, now you're questioning my sanity? I'm questioning where your loyalty lies.
My loyalty? That's rich.
Well, I'll let you know where I where I bury him, so when the time comes, you can make your big arrest, okay? You're putting me between a rock and a hard place.
We can't do this.
You can't do this.
- Arrest whoever did this.
- Arrest who? Arrest who? Who am I gonna arrest, huh? It ain't Ren and her father, 'cause I can't connect them to it, Jenny.
- Then who did this? - I don't know.
Okay, Travis, I-I need you to be honest with me.
What really happened between the Bhullars and Kate? So the handler got to you? I needed to talk to her to figure out what's going on with you.
What's going on with me? Tell me.
Kate wasn't your partner.
She was your informant.
- Jenny, stop it right now.
- You fell in love with her - Jenny, stop this, okay? - and the Bhullars killed her.
- Jenny.
- Why couldn't you just tell me that? What else do you want from me?! What do you What do you want from me? You are asking me to unsee what I just saw.
You know I can't do that.
I love you, Travis, but this this is too far.
Just Just go bury your body.
I-I can't do this anymore.
So he just stabbed a guy with a steak knife? Yeah, pretty much.
- You're okay with that? - You're not? I'm just saying, violence can be a liability in the wrong hands.
And an effective tool in the right one.
Oh, you're only okay with violence as long as you don't have to do it yourself.
That is not That's not what I'm saying.
Sounds like it.
Dad is right.
You're gonna need to toughen up.
This is Montana.
Things are hands-on here.
So, what? You trust this Stone guy now? I didn't say that.
I don't trust anyone.
But we need him.
For now.
I just hope you know who you're letting in the house.
He's not family.
I don't trust family, either.
You can trust me.
Ren, I know we've had a rough road, but Oh, God.
I am your brother, and I'm all you got right now.
Let me be there when you talk to Dad about this.
I'll take some of the heat.
No, it's my man, it's my mess.
Have you talked to him lately? Dad? No.
Yeah, I caught him staring out the window the other day.
It was weird.
Daydreaming about Alicia? Maybe Dad's lonely and she makes him happy? Maybe that's the problem.
We've never actually seen him happy before.
That's weird.
Oh, no.
God, knock much? Where is Mason? He didn't come home last night.
- I don't know.
- Weren't you with him? Some.
Okay, either you were or you weren't.
His truck's gone, he's not answering his phone.
- So? - He was supposed to help me pull fence, so unless you find him, you're taking his place.
I have a real job, thanks.
Do you? Find your brother, please.
Good morning, Dad.
Love you.
Love you, too.
Now get your ass out of bed - and find your brother.
- Yeah.
Yeah And the black smoke rises From the fires we've been told It's the new age crisis And we will stand up in the cold Stand up in At least you didn't drive, idiot.
Mason?! Mason?! Mason! Get up, dude.
Come on.
It's time to go.
Mason? Mason.
Get up.
Mason, get up.
Been a while since I beat you to a scene.
It's been a morning.
Is it Travis? What happened? I'll talk about it later.
What's he doing back so soon? Oh, he bull-dogged his way through recovery.
I figured you of all people could relate.
Morning, Hoyt.
Sheriff Walter Tubb.
Someone's back a little early.
You know me.
Justice never sleeps and all that.
So, how you doing? With recovery and everything? One day at a time.
It's good to have you back.
So, what do we have? Uh, sister called it in.
Found the body this morning when the brother didn't come home last night.
- Where's the sister? - I sent her home to prep the parents.
I figured it's best to keep them from the scene.
Oh, my God.
It's Mason Ford.
I know the whole family.
Please just tell me it isn't true.
Mason can't be dead.
I'm so sorry.
Let's go inside and talk.
So, what are you doing to solve this? We have to follow protocol and wait for the coroner's report.
That'll give us a sense of timing and circumstances around Mason's death.
I can understand how devastating this is.
But all we can do right now is just wait.
That's your answer? "Waiting.
" You're gonna wait for someone else, who's gonna wait for a report to be done, and we'll just sit here with our hands folded waiting, Jenny.
Someone killed my son.
I know this isn't easy to hear, but Mason's death isn't being ruled a homicide just yet.
What else could it be? Have there been any issues with Mason lately? Depression? Drinking? Drugs? What the hell are you getting at? Honey, she's just asking questions.
It's her job.
No! My son did not use drugs.
Hayden, honey, is there something you need to tell me? Sweetheart? No.
He drank beer sometimes, but Take it easy, sir.
He He just lost his son.
It's okay.
You come into my home and you accuse my son of being a drug addict.
They're just trying to help us.
Ah, the hell they are.
Is there anything else you want to ask us? Not right now.
I-If there's anything that you need, anything at all, I am here for you.
For all of you.
I promise you, I'm gonna get you the answers you deserve.
I thought you said just a few boxes? Oh, I guess I underestimated.
But, you know, it's hard to assess the clutter until you start organizing it.
- Hey, maybe you should take a break? - Huh? No.
No, I'm good.
Cheaper than physical therapy.
I'm glad you called.
- How are you holding up? - Oh, hasn't been easy, but I listen to a lot of podcasts about UFOs - to help pass the time.
- Seen any yet? - No.
- Yeah.
It's not my thing.
I'm on a tech break.
Walks in the woods.
Taking a woodworking class.
- Really? - Yeah.
I'm gonna build a table.
No nails.
Mortise, tenon, pegs.
Yeah, I don't have a clue what you're talking about.
Going with the flow of the wood.
Yeah, maybe we should keep it to work talk.
Roger that.
Put an APB out on Scarlet.
And, uh, then there's the question of who killed Wolf.
- Try not to go there.
- Oh, we're there.
Hey, maybe I could help out around here.
I mean, beyond De-cluttering.
Lend a hand while I'm on medical leave.
Yeah, grab a desk.
We got work to do.
Okay, that was easy.
You say that now.
Seems like a waste.
I can't look at them anymore, either.
She's gone.
You need help cleaning her stuff? Uh, maybe.
She loved her herb garden.
When she couldn't do anything else, she'd somehow still get up to water it.
- It's pretty.
- Wasn't always.
Not sure if it's the desert or if she never had a green thumb, but they kept dying on her.
What changed? She just replanted them.
Over and over.
And finally, just You know, this last week, it meant the world to her.
And to me.
I'm glad I came.
And not just for the free takeout.
I think we owe it to her to finally cook something.
Put those herbs to good use.
- Cook? - Yeah.
You and me.
Something special.
That'd be nice.
There's no such thing as overstaying your welcome.
This could be your home again.
I got a career, Dad.
You know, I've built a life for myself in Helena.
I'm I'm I'm gonna miss you.
So visit.
Do you really mean that? Yep.
What's this? We got company? Where'd you dump the body? The woods.
Well, that's dirty work.
You sweat in places a man shouldn't sweat.
Lemme see.
- What are you talking about? - Your hands.
See, I get dirt under my nails.
I have to use a brush.
You still think I'm a cop? Well, you're either a cop or you're not.
Doesn't matter.
Whoever you are, if you even think about hurting Ren, I'm gonna put you down myself.
we've been found The sun keeps shinin' behind those clouds Still the shadows call Hayden.
Still the shadows call - Hi.
- Surprised to find you here.
Yeah, I just, uh, couldn't be at home.
I mean, you saw my dad.
I'm sorry about him.
No, don't be.
He's heartbroken, and rightfully so.
I can understand that.
Is there someplace we can talk? It's all right All I saw was your back last night All you heard was the silent cry of my heart Hayden Mason died of a drug overdose.
You knew.
Honey, I've known you forever.
You can trust me.
Is there something you need to tell me? I-I found these on him.
I know I shouldn't have taken them.
I-I panicked.
I didn't want my parents knowing.
Do you know where he might have gotten them? No.
I don't get it.
Mason didn't do drugs.
It just It doesn't make sense.
I am here for you and your family.
I'm gonna get to the bottom of this.
Hey, I didn't expect you 'til later.
Let me get you that lease.
So, um, I worked my magic and got us another five years at the same rate.
Of course you did.
Cassie see this yet? No, not yet.
I'm giving her some space.
I mean, I say that she should take a little more time away considering everything that happened, but we both know that's not how she operates.
Work can be a useful distraction.
How are things with you? Been better.
Mona Ford's son was found dead today.
Mason? No.
His poor parents.
W-What I mean, what happened? Still trying to piece it together.
I had to notify the family today.
How'd that go? Never easy.
And Richard, you know how he gets.
You know I do.
I went through recovery with him.
I gotta reach out to him and make sure he does not slip.
No matter what, a parent always blames themself.
Um, thank you.
Thank you for holding down the fort.
Keep me posted on the Fords, hmm? You got it.
Can I help you with something? Somebody's outside.
This is crazy.
We should wait for Dhruv.
Hear that? " hear the lightest music of human behavior, the tender connection between men and galaxies.
So I sit on the edge, wagging my feet above the abyss, the fatal plummet.
- Tonight the moon will be in my lap.
" - Is that Dad? "This is my job, to study the universe from my bridge.
I have the sky, the sea, - the faint " - What are you doing? Oh.
Just a poem.
"Bridge" by Jim Harrison, rest in peace.
Uh why? Chalo.
Let's Let's go inside and talk.
It's It's time.
It's totally my fault.
I told him to go outside to get some fresh air.
It's not your fault, darling.
I, like, hate poetry.
I mean, who has the time? Someday, perhaps.
Are you okay? You don't have to answer them right now.
No, it's okay.
My children are worried.
About me, about their future, our future.
I don't know.
I find it calms the mind to recite things.
So, that's the poem.
And the rest, please? Reenu, always the impatient one.
Just like your mother.
Blessing and a curse.
Veer, darling, we've talked about this.
Backhanded compliments not good.
Raise people up.
- Yes, of course.
- You can do it.
We ran into some trouble in Toronto.
Remember Vikram? Vikram Dhar? With the stutter? Yes.
Yeah, well, he betrayed me.
It was actually Alicia who caught it.
Vikram managed to drain several of our accounts, and I took matters into my own hands, and I tried to kill him, but he got away.
Yeah, it's embarrassing to be fooled by somebody so unimportant, somebody not family.
- So, what does that mean exactly? - Wait, Vik did what? Like, is it the Kapoors? It doesn't matter.
Hey, we we are in Big Sky country now.
I have my family, my my health, and now, you have the truth.
Dad, honestly, how bad is it? This line of questioning is teetering on the disrespectful.
Okay, we just we just want to know are they gonna come after us? Yeah, well, if they do, then God help them all.
Smells amazing.
What are you making? Donno? Pot roast.
It'll be good.
Or not.
I'm sure it will be great.
- Something wrong? - No.
Well, you're mister black cloud.
So? It happens.
You can talk to me, Donno.
I know.
Now? Or you can hold it in.
I mean, that's always good.
I'm a good listener.
Sorta comes with the job.
Talk to me.
I think there's trouble coming.
Okay? Not sure what to do with that.
You're gonna need to give me a few more details.
I'm team Ren.
- Me, too.
- Not like I am.
- Sure.
I get that.
- I'm worried about her.
Her family I mean, her dad, he's dangerous, he's unpredictable.
- I got that.
- Him showing up isn't good.
And Stone.
I don't trust him.
Whatever happens, we have to have Ren's back.
We will.
She believes in you for a reason.
You work hard, you have good ideas, but are you loyal? Of course I am.
How do you mean? You asked me once if you were gonna have to kill people working for Ren.
Might just get your answer before all this is over.
I'll tell you, it is so nice having warm bodies in this office again.
You know, you may come to regret this.
Cassie says I talk too much.
Yeah, well, better than listening to all the voices in my head all day long.
Settling in, I see.
Jerrie! My sweet girl! Oh! Honey! Oh, I missed you.
I missed you.
- Hey.
- Hi.
I didn't think you'd be back for a few weeks.
Well, if I had known you were gunning for my job, I would have come sooner.
So, bring me up to speed.
How much time do you have? Depends.
What are we working on? Wolf? The Syndicate? Yeah.
It's like you read my mind.
I'm all yours.
We got the forensics back on those pills that killed Mason Ford.
And? I'd rather not do it here.
Synthetic opioids.
Here in Helena.
We knew that from the coroner's report.
Yeah, but these are cut with something.
Makes them stronger, last longer, heightens the effects.
Which makes it easier to overdose on.
- Yep.
- Cheaper for the maker.
Do we know what it is? They're running more tests to be sure.
You ask me, bring back Just Say No.
The fried egg, "This is your brain.
" That was That was powerful stuff.
Deputy, please.
I have a migraine.
It's the Bhullars.
We all know that.
You know, back when it was just Dietrich and his gang, it was easy.
We knew who they were.
Everyone played on their side of the fence.
It's always been the Bhullars.
The only difference now is that they're here, in our backyard.
And if they keep cutting their batches, more people are gonna die.
We need to nip this in the butt.
It's actually bud, sir.
With a "D".
Nip it in the bud.
Butt, two T's that could be a trigger word - for some of the younger - Deputy! If we could just trace this back to the Bhullars, we could take them down.
Find out how Mason got this.
No, you can't quit, Bryce.
We have a shipment that should've been on the road hours ago.
Job's way too risky.
After what happened to Jamison, I'm out.
All right, why don't we sit down and talk about it? Don't need to.
I'm done.
She's not done talking to you.
Mountain West Three-draw champ 2017 and 2019.
What happened in '18? I didn't compete.
Go on, Ginsu boy.
Come at me with that fish shucker.
I will show you what I got.
Can we not do this? Sorry, Tonya.
My guys and I are out.
What if I up your rate, say, 20%? 20% ain't worth dying for.
That was a one-time thing, okay? The guy who killed Jamison, he's not going to be a problem.
Uh-oh, knives out time, or you're just happy to see me.
These Montanans are problematic.
I'm sure Tonya has it covered, and if she doesn't, then you can play stick and poke.
- Okay.
- Tonya, got a problem? Nope.
Handling it.
See, Donno? Girl power.
You see that nice lady behind me? She don't look nice.
Kinda sexy, definitely scary.
But nice, nah.
If you walk, she will kill us both.
Now, do we have a deal? Thinking you double my fee, seeing as both our lives depend on it.
I said 20%.
I like double.
With Jamison dead, the word's out about that cargo.
Extra risk comes with a price.
Double it is.
Problem solved? Doubled his fee.
Is that in the budget I gave you? Don't worry, low-balled him to begin.
We're good.
See, Donno, no blood spilled.
Girl power.
I could teach you if you want.
It helps clear the mind of clutter so you can focus on what's important.
What's important to you, Alicia? Your dad.
It's cheesy, I know, but it's true.
I didn't think it was possible to find love again.
And then I met your dad I don't wanna talk about that.
Oh, I know.
It's gross, right? So let's talk about you and about last night.
I bet you have a ton of questions.
Not really.
Jag looked into it.
It's true.
Ah, sneaky.
I like it.
Are we in danger? - Financial or other? - Does it matter? If we don't have money, then we don't have protection.
Don't tell me we're broke.
He thinks that they will send someone to take him out.
But the hope is, Montana, long way.
Out of sight, out of mind.
Why can't he just tell me this himself? It's It's like I'm still his little girl.
Oh, my dad.
Not Not Veer.
That would be weird.
I get it.
Maybe you should just not talk to him.
I mean not about business.
Do you want my advice? Sure.
Go ahead.
He needs to hand off the business to one of you.
Get out before he gets taken out.
So he has a choice to make.
- You or Jag.
- Well, it should be me.
He's old school.
Only men can run things, blah, blah, blah, and all that other crap that we've been dealing with like since forever.
But Jag.
Really? Dad knows that he's weak.
Yeah, pretty much.
But I told him maybe both of you could run things.
But did he listen to me? No.
Of course not.
Uh, Montana was my idea.
He knows that.
Okay, none of this matters.
He's never gonna retire.
And I know that.
But I also know that if one of you was going to take over I think it should be you.
You just have to show him.
We picked up dinner on the way home.
Fried chicken.
Still hot if you want some.
Where were you and your mother today? We went and talked to Jenny at the station.
She had some follow-up questions.
Dad, she's just trying to help.
All she and her band of idiots are gonna do is waste your time.
Do you have any idea what he was doing out there? All by himself? No.
You couldn't text? Been running around all day.
How long you gonna hold this surveillance footage over me? - Donno showed me.
- Why do you care? Same team, right? You okay? Yeah, I'm fine.
It's just family.
My dad's got a new girlfriend.
It's a whole thing.
Yeah, well, I-I know how that goes.
Yeah, hey, if if you want, I could do some digging on her for you, you know? I used to do that kind of thing with Dietrich.
What are you, a renaissance man? Mm-hmm.
Yeah, a-actually, I, uh I dug up a little bit - on your family history, too.
- What? Well, Dietrich's nothing if he ain't diligent.
- What did you find? - You really want to know? Yeah, bring it on.
- Well, okay, look, no offense.
- Ugh.
But your father, he, uh he doesn't have the best track record when it comes to women.
Yeah, he had, uh, Tammy the bartender at the Jamaican resort.
He had, uh, a law clerk in Alberta.
He had that girlfriend in Seattle, uh, K-Kathy Kate.
Uh, she's a nail technician.
- Waitress? - Uh, yeah, waitress, that's right.
I remember her.
She was perky.
Yeah, they always are.
Hey, if this new one goes the same way the other one did, your problem's solved.
Why? What happened to her? - Ren.
- Yeah? We got a problem.
This one is continuing to be a problem.
She's got a hero complex.
Can I help you, Officer? You just killed a kid.
What happened? A kid by the name of Mason Ford died - with your drugs on him.
- Synthetic fentanyl, laced with whatever filth that you're cutting your batch with.
I just want you to know that I will not stop until you go down.
I'm sorry.
I just want to understand.
You think I sold drugs to some kid, and the kid is dead? That kid had a name.
- Are we doing this? - No, we're not, 'cause if I remember correctly, you need a warrant to be on private property.
Which you're standing on.
So why don't you just turn around, get out of here? 'Cause you ain't gonna do nothing.
I'll see you all very soon.
- Either of you know about this? - No.
I didn't come all this way to push tainted product.
You better find out what she's talking about.
I'll corner some street-level players, see who knows something.
You have my permission to not play nice.
Hey, keep your ear to the ground.
Find out who's messing with my product, and you do what you do best.
Hey, I hope me showing up early is a-a happy surprise.
I-I texted, but no answer.
Aw, sorry.
Yeah, I've been on a tech break.
Surprise is nice sometimes.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
So? How are you? I'm okay.
Not sure if you're supposed to feel a burden lift when a parent dies, but here we are.
You were right, y'know.
About going home.
I'll never forget what you did for me.
I didn't do anything.
It was all you.
How was it? Mm.
She was angry when she died.
I was so mad at her.
'Cause I didn't get to say all the things I wanted to say.
Because she was sick and in the end, it didn't matter.
Wasn't gonna change anything that happened.
Give it time.
The anger It lets go after a while.
I promise.
Have you, uh Have you spoken to Cassie? I've I've tried calling, but Yeah, I think she's content to stay off the grid for now.
Look, um About Cassie.
There's something I've been wanting to talk with you about.
Something happened while I was gone? Kind of took me by surprise, to be honest.
I'm just surprised it took this long.
I've seen the way you two dance around each other.
I missed you, Jerrie.
So where does that leave us? Bad move.
