Blood Coast (2023) s01e05 Episode Script

Les liens du sang

[intense music playing]
[man] Come on.
Come on. Go, go.
[boy] Ali? The cops are here.
They're on boats.
- Go inside. Okay?
- [boy] Yeah.
Be calm.
[whistles, snaps fingers]
Mounia? Go inside with the kids, please.
Come on.
- [Mounia] What's happening?
- [Ali] Nothing. Please, go in. Go.
Come on, girls.
[man] Come on, go inside.
[all screaming]
[Ali] Get inside! Get in, get in! Go! Go!
- [gunfire]
- [screaming]
[Ali] Go! Hurry! Go!
Come on! Now, get inside! Now, now!
Come on! Go, go!
- [gunfire stops]
- [groans]
[somber music playing]
Farrah, no!
[sirens approaching]
[The Indian] Come on, Franck, let's go.
The cops are here, let's go!
[emotional music playing]
Why wasn't I informed?
We wanted to be sure about it.
Well, it's official.
Franck Murillo is alive.
He carried out an attack in plain sight.
Ali Saïdi formally identified him.
Please explain that.
We have no explanation.
Two months after his escape
at his son's funeral,
the authorities from Venezuela
sent this over to us.
They found his corpse completely burnt.
Next to him were his papers,
and a few of his personal things.
Well, maybe Murillo paid off
the local authorities.
Well, 11 people died
during a shooting at a memorial service.
A "maybe" won't be good enough.
Alice Vidal.
You've known about Murillo
since the start.
So you're not in Marseille
by chance, are you?
And I was naive enough to believe
you could help enhance this team.
Well, you've met your match.
- Lyès and the team didn't know.
- That's enough!
I'm not interested in excuses.
You deceived us. Have a safe trip home.
[Fabiani] You heard me.
I expect your transfer letter
on my desk tomorrow.
Past then, I'll handle it myself,
and you don't want that.
From this point forward,
the Anti-Organized Crime Bureau
is taking over the Murillo case.
- It's no longer your responsibility.
- [sighs]
If I find out you went against this order,
you'll be hearing from Miranda.
Now get out of here.
I'm done with you.
[door opens]
[somber music playing]
[radio chatter]
[footsteps approaching]
They're here.
[man] All right. Take that to the office.
I'll see you guys there in 15 minutes.
- Make sure you
- You know what to do.
All right.
So, what now?
Do we give up?
I've got nothing to lose.
I bet Murillo's not in Marseille.
People would know.
Hamadi wants to kill Ali.
That makes sense.
But what's in it for Murillo?
His robbery days are over.
Now he's into dope.
There's somethin' else.
What's up with the tap
on his mom's phone?
She's lost her mind, she's useless.
Yeah. She'd love us to think so.
And the murder of Murillo's son?
How do we know Ali's not involved somehow?
Involved in what? The boy's death?
Why would Ali go after Murillo's kid?
They didn't know each other.
Yeah, yeah [sighs]
Reopen Lucas Murillo's file, please.
- [typing]
- Maybe we missed somethin'.
Mr. Saïdi, we're sorry for your loss.
[ominous music playing]
Our police forces are searching
for Murillo as we speak.
A mob of gangsters attacked my client.
Do I need to remind you
Mr. Saïdi represents
important interests for the city?
We are all well-informed individuals here.
And we all know
who your client really is, sir.
If you know,
why'd you bother to come in person?
[Sartet] Ever hear of public safety?
Your client now is under our protection,
until further notice.
Is this meant to assure us?
We want to avoid other
unnecessary deaths. You must understand.
Some deaths are necessary.
[Arno] "Caught in crossfire
of rival gangs,
Lucas Murillo, 11, was fatally shot
in the chest by a stray bullet."
"No witnesses."
That's right, and nobody saw or
heard anything. What a surprise.
[Arno] It's not a bad area.
Nothing happens there.
Ali knows the café on the square,
Au Petit Nice.
- He used to go.
- How do you know?
The owner, Abdel, was already interviewed.
Doesn't know anything, bar is clean.
Hmm, of course.
Maybe Ali was there.
Should we go see?
See what? You think they'll talk to you?
- [Arno sighs]
- Wanna bet?
[The Indian] Are you sure?
All right. We'll talk soon.
What is it?
Ali. He's not dead.
- Yes, he is.
- You missed him.
[ominous music playing]
The son of a bitch.
Let's go get him.
As long as he breathes, we get nowhere.
He must be under protection by now.
There's no way.
We were supposed to live like kings,
not sit here like cowards.
We need a new plan, and quick.
You want to live like a king,
I don't give a shit about that.
Your useless men are the problem.
[Fanny clears throat]
This is because of your buddy. The cop.
- I told you to handle him first.
- All right.
What are you talking about?
Lyès is just doing his job.
If you kill him, you won't
have anywhere to hide, all right?
Why is she talking?
- Who asked your opinion?
- Fuck you, I don't need to be asked.
You piss me off, and you die. You hear me?
Why is she defending him?
She's got her reasons, okay?
Come on, enough of this.
If we want to do better,
we need better guys.
Not your losers. So fix it.
Then what?
Well, guess what.
I'm not giving up.
[kids laughing]
[sighs] Lucas Murillo did use to
live here, upstairs with his mother.
Every day, he walked past Abdel's bar
on his way coming home from school.
Abdel must have seen it happen.
He'd know if Ali was there.
Okay. Let's get a closure order
for Abdel's bar then, all right?
We'll see if that makes him want to talk.
["Demain ça ira"
by BEN plg and TK playing]
[kids playing, shouting]
Did he tell you where he was?
He doesn't talk.
He just sulks around.
He's been really annoying.
Look at him.
[Tatoo] What's the hell's he doing?
[Coach] Hey, hey, stop it!
Enough, cut it out!
Hey, knock it off. That's enough.
Stop. Go take a break.
- Okay, calm down.
- Lay off!
[Coach] Take a breather.
What happened here?
What the hell was that, Bakari?
Stay out of it. What do you know?
[song fades]
- [man] What's going on?
- [Alice] You own this place?
Why, is there a problem?
Well, you could say that.
This is an order to close.
In effect next week.
If you ask me, I think she's pretty.
You should go over.
No, come on. [laughs]
I have to go. I'll call you back.
Who was that, your girlfriend?
- What do you mean?
- You don't think I know?
Arno, I was wrong about you.
I mean, look, with your wife, your kids
I really thought you were
the only good guy that was on the team.
So when I saw you the other night
with another woman,
I thought, "Oh, shit."
"He's actually a scumbag too." [laughs]
Look, I'm not judging you, though.
I'm divorced myself, so I know temptation.
[ominous music playing]
I found out who your girlfriend is.
I's Dr. Hélène Rossi. Yeah?
What do you want?
- Lyès Benamar.
- [scoffs] Come on
Are you dumb enough to think
I would rat out on my own friend? Huh?
No, I don't think, I'm sure.
Think about all the problems
coming your way,
and how your family would be destroyed.
[Arno sighs]
Go ahead. Tell me about all of the deals
between Lyès and Ali,
and I'll pretend I didn't see anything.
[sighs] You enjoying yourself?
You have a week to bring me some evidence.
- [knocking]
- [Fabiani] Yeah?
[door closes]
Make it quick.
I'm in no mood.
I know how to catch Murillo.
Well, okay.
Send your info to the anti-crime unit.
They'll appreciate it.
No. They can't do it.
You know they don't understand Marseille.
It's clear you have no plan.
You're playing for time.
You're heading straight into a wall, Lyès.
And I won't be able to help you.
Give me two days and Alice Vidal.
[Fabiani sighs]
You can locate him, let us know.
But no intervention.
Okay. Copy that.
And Alice?
[sighs] You're a real pain, Lyès.
[tense music playing]
[Lyès] You okay?
- Good to go?
- Yeah.
[Lyès] Good.
[Audrey] Thank you.
[Tatoo] So don't I get a hug?
You get to fuck off, okay?
- [both laugh]
- She's healed, all right.
Thank you all for your help.
Thank you, Arno.
What'd Fabiani say?
We have 48 hours to catch Murillo.
And you're back, too.
Where should I start?
- [Tatoo] I'll shake the informants.
- [Arno] Let's go.
[dramatic music playing]
[Lyès over radio] Fanny's the only one
who can lead us to Murillo.
Her old man would do anything
to help his daughter. Watch out for him.
He's an ex-armed robber, and he's smart.
[Alice] Okay. I'm here. Talk soon.
[rings bell]
- [music fades]
- [man clears throat]
- Hello.
- I'm Vanessa.
I work with Fanny
over at the Don Quichotte.
Um I, uh I haven't heard from her.
And I'm worried.
You're who?
Vanessa. I'm I'm your daughter's friend.
She gave me your address.
Okay. Get lost.
- [girl] Is it Mom?
- No, it's not Mom.
- Zoé, stay inside.
- Zoé, I'm a friend of your mom's.
Mom's friend is leaving.
You're leaving right now.
When is she coming home?
Real soon. How old are you?
- Six.
- [Alice chuckles] You're a big girl!
- Are you in school?
- That's enough. Go inside.
Come on.
Get outta here.
Hey, guys.
Lookouts who were working for the Indian.
We found two other bodies on the docks.
They worked for him too.
[Lyès] It's Ali.
Hey, you get the message?
- I'm talkin' to you.
- Yeah, uh I know.
[Lyès] Hey.
You wanna go see Lucie?
- Go, clock off.
- I'm fine. Thanks, though.
- Are you sure?
- Yeah.
Shit, it's the Anti-Crime Squad!
Hide the weed, quick, quick! [chuckles]
You work here, or just talk shit?
Whew. My work is my life.
To protect and to serve.
- Yeah.
- [Audrey snorts]
We caught a guy dealing at the stadium.
There were videos on his phone
of some, uh,
brutal shit.
- Okay, and?
- Well, I recognized your informant.
Show me.
Fair warning, it's pretty ugly, in fact.
[tense music playing]
I said I don't wanna do it!
[man] Go on, take this!
Hit him, Bakari, fuck him up! Fuck him up!
- Fuck him up or I fuck you up!
- [boy] Please, don't do it!
- Don't do it!
- [man] Are you a man or not? Then do it!
[boy] Bakari!
- [screams]
- [man] That's it, again!
- I said, again!
- [boy] Bakari, stop!
- [blow lands]
- [man] Hit him again! Harder!
- [boy screams]
- [man] That's it, good!
- [blows landing]
- [boy sobbing]
[man] Again, Bakari. Good!
[boy wailing]
Please, stop!
Enough, we get it. [sighs]
- Know what it's for?
- Yeah.
It's to blackmail the lookouts.
They make them do shit like this.
If the boys won't work for free,
they send around the videos.
These people are insane.
The other kid, do you know him?
That's Bakari's cousin.
[Arno] Fucking hell.
- [Arno and Audrey sigh]
- And there are other videos on here too.
They make some kids perform, uh,
sex acts too.
- [Lyès] Fuck.
- [Arno] Man.
[sighing] Oh.
- Do you know who shot the video?
- Two guys that work at Mistral Phone.
They're in the statement.
Aslan and Murat. Brothers.
Let me see.
Wait. Hey, hey. Tatoo.
Tatoo. Give it here.
I'm goin'.
[suspenseful music playing]
Wait. Hey, hey, hey. Calm down. Okay?
- Easy.
- [Tatoo] I'm going.
- Then we'll go as a team.
- All right.
- [Lyès] Okay?
- What's happening?
I'll explain on the way.
[sighs] Come on, let's go.
[tense music playing]
You good?
[sighs] You know going crazy on those guys
in there won't help Bakari. Don't you?
Yeah, don't worry, Lyès.
[Lyès sighs]
Let's have some fun.
[Alice] Hello.
I I have a problem.
I can't find my photos.
- You have a cloud account?
- Um No.
Yeah, well, your battery's dead.
[over radio] I don't have the charger.
It's an old model. Do you have one?
Maybe at the back, I'll check. Wait here.
[door closes]
[Lyès] Fuck,
isn't that one of the brothers?
Arno, isn't that Aslan?
Lighting a cigarette right behind you?
[suspenseful music intensifies]
Confirmed, that's the guy
comin' this way, over.
[music ends]
[Audrey gasps]
This is the place.
The basement.
Get out of there. He's coming.
We'll catch 'em at the same time.
Wait! Tatoo! Stop! Damn it.
What are you doing? Tatoo?
[suspenseful music playing]
[Lyès] Let him go inside the shop. Got it?
Don't do this. Tatoo!
[suspenseful music intensifies]
[hits window]
Stop, you piece of shit!
- [people screaming]
- [Arno groaning]
You okay?
Police! Don't move!
[man grunts]
[Audrey yelps]
[Murat groaning]
Hang on. Move over. I got him.
- Come here.
- [Murat yelps]
- You fucking bastard. Up! Up, up, up!
- [groaning]
[Tatoo] Stop!
Stop, you son of a bitch!
[fires twice]
[people screaming]
Turn around! Turn around!
[Aslan wailing]
[sound becomes muffled]
[Tatoo yelling] Why? Why? Why? Why?
Tatoo, stop!
[dramatic music playing]
Who are the kids' videos for?
- Answer!
- [Alice] Hey!
We're just doing promos,
that's it, damn it!
Yeah, right.
You have no idea what I'm gonna do to you.
Fuck, you bastard!
- [loud crunch]
- [Murat screams] Fuck!
Who asked you to film that?
It's for the Saïdis.
[sobs] Oh, fuck.
You bastards. [groans]
[seagulls calling]
Stay calm.
[Miranda] Mr. Roussot?
Close the door, please.
[Alice] I'm sorry about Tatoo.
It's my fault.
I shouldn't have let him come.
I have something to tell you.
- So, I saw Fanny's father.
- Oh, right.
Ran me off. Didn't trust me, I guess.
But, um
- [sighs]
- What is it?
Fanny has a kid.
She lives with Armand.
She's six.
You know what I'm saying?
No, I'm not sure I follow.
[sighs] Do the math, Lyès.
- You were with Fanny
- Stop! All right?
[ship's horn blares]
She'll go see her daughter.
So we need to stake the place out.
Right. We'll send a team. We'll take over.
All right.
- You have to tell the others.
- Please don't.
[Miranda] Given the context,
there's no need to tell you
this video didn't sit well
with the higher-ups.
Luckily, no witnesses
pulled out their phones
to capture your fit of rage.
But their statements are damning,
as you can imagine.
You'll appear before a disciplinary board.
Let's be honest, a sanction is inevitable.
You will be fired.
Do they know what these bastards did?
- They know what happened?
- [sighs] Yes, they know the case.
The deciding factor
will be your interview.
Based on that, the board will judge
the severity of your actions.
And when is that?
Right now.
[tense music playing]
In my report, I could mention
an act of self-defense,
and the dangerous nature of the suspect.
But it's up to you.
What are you getting at here, exactly?
[tense music playing]
Give me Benamar.
The envelopes of cash,
the deals with Ali Saïdi, everything.
Bakari. What's up?
- Stay with Tatoo.
- Hey, man.
[Tatoo] How are you? Talk to me.
- [Bakari] Yeah, I'm okay.
- Bakari agreed to testify.
That and Murat should be enough
for us to bring down Ali.
[Arno] Hmm.
Hey, Armand.
Your colleague already came by.
I don't know where she is.
- Even if I did
- Yeah, I get it, it's fine.
[somber music playing]
Who's the father?
She didn't tell me, I'm not sure.
But just in case, I prayed in Notre-Dame,
hoping it's not a shitty cop like your.
Was she born in Spain?
Unknown father.
And it should remain like that.
You understand me here?
Unknown father.
I wanted to let you know
I can't do anything for Fanny this time.
She'll be arrested.
I doubt they'll give you
custody of the kid.
- Well, let 'em come. I'm ready.
- What are you gonna do, huh?
How old are you again?
What's your plan here? To put up a fight?
And what are you gonna do, huh?
Put her in a foster home or somethin'?
There's always gonna be a voice inside
you saying, "What if she's my daughter?"
You thought about that, pal?
[emotional music playing]
[moody hip-hop playing]
You okay?
Huh? Yeah.
This is good.
Did you go see her?
Do you know why Fanny didn't tell you?
[Lyès sighs]
She sent me a couple of texts
while on the run.
A photo of a sonogram, and, uh
then a few months later,
she told me she lost the child.
[Alice] Did you believe it?
I guess it was convenient to believe it.
If she really is your daughter,
it changes everything, right?
Wanna get a drink?
[sighs] You're all bark
and you're no bite.
You wanna leave? Go.
But don't come back when the tables turn.
Your dope went up in flames, your men
are getting killed, what else do you want?
I thought you wanted to avenge your son.
Change your mind, did ya?
Of course I didn't.
I'm just saying we can't fuck this up.
We're losing, open your fuckin' eyes.
Who told you Ali killed your kid?
Who came for you and got you out of jail?
Have you forgotten
everything I've done for you?
So let's go out there
and make sure we kill Ali.
- That's the only way we'll be respected.
- How can we without soldiers?
You want a bullet in your head,
be my guest.
- I'm not scared of bullets.
- Nah, shut up.
- It stinks of defeat. I'm outta here.
- Yeah, yeah, go ahead. Whatever.
You pieces of shit can go suck his cock.
Coming to see me in plain sight now?
I'm here for an official investigation.
Take a look. Here.
[man] This is your only
fucking chance, Bakari!
- Look at me.
- [boy] Bakari!
[man] Are you a man or not?
Then fucking hit him! Now!
[boy screams]
What is this shit?
Murat and Aslan filmed this video.
Your colleagues from Mistral Phone.
- I know they work for you.
- No, no, no. I don't know them.
Maybe they knew my nephews.
I don't know them.
You or your nephews, it's all the same.
Murat will be testifying,
this video will be shared.
- Why does it matter?
- I don't think you get it, Ali.
You'll be charged with
accessory to kidnapping, assault,
and unlawful confinement of minors.
You still have time to run away.
You got till tomorrow.
So, that's it, you choose war?
I choose peace for Marseille.
Then you chose the wrong city.
You got 24 hours.
[foreboding music playing]
I saved my new number in there.
It's a secure line.
Follow Lyès, don't lose him.
He's gonna lead us to Murillo.
[foreboding music continues]
A taxi's driving up.
Okay, that's Fanny.
[Alice] What are they doing?
- [Arno] Getting in the cab.
- [Alice] All of them?
Just the girl and the grandpa.
Okay, follow the taxi.
I'll follow Fanny to find Murillo.
I'll tell Lyès.
[music fades]
[tense music playing]
[Lyès sighs]
How long's it been?
[Arno] About 15 minutes.
What's goin' on?
Somethin' wrong?
Nah, it's nothin'.
Come on, I'm not an idiot. What is it?
What's wrong?
Miranda's out to get ya.
Well, yeah, I know.
He's puttin' pressure on Tatoo.
He's on me too.
Yeah, that's why we have to catch Murillo.
Yeah? What will that change?
That'll give us some time,
and it could even earn us a medal.
[suspenseful music playing]
She shouldn't be staying inside that long.
It's the only exit. We already checked.
Oh, God damn it.
[music fades]
[upbeat pop music playing]
[excited screams and chatter]
[Armand] Come on, honey.
- You excited?
- Yeah.
[tense music playing]
[upbeat pop music playing]
[tense music resumes]
- [music fades]
- [Arno gasps]
Damn it!
[man] Two?
Thanks. Go right ahead.
[upbeat pop music playing]
- [Armand] Hello.
- [man] Hello, sir.
- Uh two tickets. Yeah.
- [on radio] Alice, this is Tatoo.
You think we got time to
go on the merry-go-round?
Yeah, of course.
There's the ghost train too, if you want.
Fanny's father rents the house next door.
There's a door between the two.
- [Alice] You didn't see her leave?
- We didn't.
She must've left
through the garden or somethin'.
That fucker really played us.
Can you still see him?
[Alice] Yeah, they're in front of me
on the merry-go-round.
[Lyès] All right, okay.
[car doors slam]
[engine starts]
[starts engine]
[Armand] There you go.
- You comfy?
- Yeah.
[woman] Excuse me.
Can you take a picture of us?
Thank you.
[shutter clicks]
They just did the swap.
[urgent music playing]
[man on PA] Hold onto your seats,
the next round is about to start!
Alice? She's leaving in a dark Range Rover
heading towards the entrance.
[boy] Dad, come on! Stop filming.
Come on, let's play! Let's play, come on!
[Fanny] Come on.
- Hi, Zoé, how are ya?
- [Zoé] Hi.
[Fanny] That's Franck.
You know, the friend I told you about.
Very nice to meet ya.
I've heard a lot about you, you know?
[Fanny and Murillo chuckle]
- Wanna go in?
- Let's go.
We're leaving tonight.
- Lyès?
- Yeah?
I've located Murillo.
I'm sending you my position.
Got it. Don't move. We're on the way.
[cartoon music playing softly]
[girl] John? Hello, are you there?
I think I found a secret hideout!
[boy] Okay, hold on Amy.
I'm using my special tracker
to locate you now!
So, what's next?
I'll go with you to Spain.
I know people there who can
help you leave the continent.
I've arranged everything.
You're not coming?
You never meant to leave
with me at all, right?
Do you really wanna take on Ali?
[suspenseful music playing]
[line ringing]
- Ali?
- Yeah?
- Hey, I found him.
- I'm sending men over.
- Can I watch with you?
- Uh, yeah, sure.
[woman] It's sharing, right?
sharing helps us all feel special.
- You can play.
- [Murillo] I know this.
- [Zoé] Really?
- [Murillo] Yeah.
My son used to watch it
when he was your age.
[tense music playing]
Where is he now?
Waiting for me.
We'll be reunited soon.
[Alice] Three guys, plus Murillo.
And the Indian?
Didn't see him.
[Lyès] Okay. Good.
Let's go.
No. I'm not going, no.
- Hmm?
- You made a deal with Fabiani.
This is our only chance
to sort things out.
Tatoo's gonna get fired. Remember?
Lyès he's right.
We need to warn the cavalry.
I know what the cavalry's like.
They'll go in guns blazing.
- [gun clicks]
- [Arno] So what?
We'll be in the front row
for the spectacle. What's the problem?
There's a kid, for fuck's sake. Okay?
Hey. Can you explain what this is about?
She's my daughter.
