Blood Sisters (2022) s01e03 Episode Script

The Hunt

1 Ah! Sarah, it's okay.
It was only just a dream You're safe now.
Go back to sleep.
We have a long day tomorrow.
I welcome you all in the name of the Lord, our savior.
As we celebrate the life of Kola Ademola, a son, brother, uncle and friend.
I will hand over now to his brother to say a few words.
If anyone had told me that I'd be burying my brother today If they had said his killer would be someone he loved and trusted someone he shared intimacy with Today is a hard day.
But then it would be harder if I didn't have the support of my wife, Olayinka, my son, FJ.
Akin, Kola's best friend and best man.
If you look around, as well, you'll see there are other faces not here with us.
Like our dear sister, Timeyin.
Who's now in the UK trying to complete her studies.
I said give me the soap.
- And I said no.
- Who do you think you're talking to? Who you think you're talking to? - Where you think you are? - Eh! As we lay my brother to rest today, please, kindly put my mom in your prayers.
She's been through a lot.
She is broken.
Unfortunately, she cannot be here today because our our tradition forbids it.
I mean, our family is no stranger to grief.
You know, my mother lost her husband, our beloved father, 20 years ago, and still she remained strong, un-bended, and helped build his legacy.
It's been weeks since you started the investigation into my son's murder, and I haven't received any updates.
Madam, we're working on it.
So you keep telling me! Fatai.
Your department could use some help.
We are going to find those girls.
Wherever they are.
Mm? Rest in peace, Adekola.
We miss you.
Why, in heaven's sake, is there so much noise here? Hmm.
Timeyin This chaos has your name written all over it.
Sister Rose.
They bury my brother today.
Please, I need to attend his funeral.
And I need more discipline, patience, and yet here we are.
This is the only chance I get to say goodbye.
Please don't rob me of that.
Do you need someone to blame? Well, I suggest you look in the mirror.
You chose to pick up those drugs.
You chose to do them, not so? Please.
It's okay.
What are you doing here? Don't worry.
No one saw me.
I wanted to be here for you.
For Kola.
This is not the time or the place.
He was my son too.
Don't you ever say that again.
Kola was an Ademola.
He lived as an Ademola.
And in death, he will be remembered as one.
You made sure of it when you chose your wife over me.
Or should I say your career? Mr.
But the moment I turn my back like this, they're talking about me.
What is it? Who? What do you think? Huh? Is it not that your shameless daughter that has brought disgrace to this family? Calm down.
- I think you should - No, no! Don't I cannot calm down! - Calm down.
- I cannot I think you should What is happening? No, no, no! No, no, no! God, please.
Mama Nkechi! Somebody! Anybody! Madam.
What's the progress on your side? I'm almost at a location.
Do you trust your source? Yes, I do.
We go way back.
I'll give you the number of the superintendent.
Call if you need backup.
Who's that? It's Kenny.
- Hi.
- Hi.
It's not a lot of money, but I figured in case you guys need to buy some stuff for the road.
Thank you.
Okay, so, um, I'm just gonna go I'll go out and leave you guys here, okay? Mm-hmm.
- Wait one moment.
- Okay.
- Call me if you need anything.
- Okay.
- Thank you for setting us up here.
- Of course.
So, um, everything is set with the border guys.
By this time tomorrow, you'll be in a new country, starting a new life.
Thank you.
For everything.
Yeah, sure.
I mean it.
I'm going to go and get your passports now.
Kenny Shit.
Some people are saying that they used him as some form of sacrifice.
I have to take this.
Excuse me.
Did you really do it? It's not that simple.
Then make it simple.
He was beating her, Akin.
It's been going on for a long time.
On the day of the engagement he was strangling her.
I don't know, he had a gun and then he dropped it, I I picked it up and I I fired.
I just wanted to stop him.
I didn't mean to kill him.
Why are you telling me all of this? Because you're a good man.
And because you deserve the truth, Akin.
Well, I hope they catch you.
You and Sarah.
I hope they lock you up and throw away the keys.
Boss? Boss, please can you carry us to the marina? Eh! That depends.
Boss, as we are right now, we don't have money.
But we beg you in God's name.
We have to get to the marina, please.
You don't have to pay with cash, you can pay in kind.
Don't talk any more.
Make sure you search every car properly.
Yes, sir! Shit.
- Well done, eh.
- Wait.
What about Kenny? He'll see our shack's on fire and go back where he came from.
So we can't leave him there, we have to warn him.
With what? With what, please? If you haven't noticed, we don't have phones.
No money.
Let's go, please.
What about our passports? Shit.
Where did he say we should meet him? Freedom Park.
How How How are we going to get there? - Thank you so much.

And we'll talk further.
- Thank you so much for coming.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
Thanks a lot, yeah.
- Thank you.
Yeah, Mommy, that's the last of them.
And yet here the two of you still are.
- We thought we could keep you company.
- You thought wrong.
Close the door on your way out.
- Mom - Mom must be tired.
We should let her get some rest.
You should listen to your wife.
She has more sense than you.
Do you have them? I lost them.
Where are you? I'm just leaving Makoko.
They couldn't have gotten very far.
Send me your location.
I'll forward it to the IG.
- Looks all right.
- Yes.
You have to keep them clean.
Otherwise, you run the risk of infection.
I might have some information on Kola's case.
I got a call from Kemi today.
Kemi Sanya.
Self-employed in marketing and advertising.
Pretty good at it too, from what I gathered.
Sarah's best friend and her maid of honor.
Yeah, that's that's her.
So, what did she have to say? Any information that you have will be very useful in finding your friend's killers.
Yeah, sure.
She said Kola was a monster.
That he wasn't the man that I thought he was.
Why would she say that? Well, apparently, he used to beat Sarah up.
" You don't believe her? Inspector, I I knew Kola for many years.
I never saw him hit a woman.
Sometimes, when you're very close to someone, you're the last person to know about their demons.
What else did Ms.
 Sanya say to you? That, uh That was all.
I'm sorry.
If you can think of anything else, here's my mobile number.
Thank you.
We're counting on your cooperation.
Whoo! I do apologize about the traffic, ladies.
Thank you for the lift.
You know, this is like my usual spot.
- I'm the commander of this republic - Thanks.
I'll make you stars.
I could make you blow - Hey, bro, what the fuck? - Shut your mouth.
What the fuck? When you meet the bannys and the shorties in the building, - you got to drop some lines.
- Oh, fuck that shit, man.
I don't want to hear that shit.
They coming already? It's just her right? We already have four.
Just come like that.
You understand.
- Kenny's girls, right? - Yes.
Oh, great, great.

- You don't have luggage? - What about your passport? - It's with Kenny, he's bringing it.

That It's far, we don't even have a car.
Don't worry about that.
We'll get one.
It's me.
They're still on the run, but they can't get very far.
Not without the help of someone they trust.
I've seen everything.
Thank you.
The club, and after the club, tonight will be a "Yeah!" Yeah.

Get in the car.
- Give me the fucking keys.
Move! - I'm moving! Get in the fucking car.
- Go! - Shit.
Run! Why do you have a gun? Because I need to hijack cars and and save our asses, apparently.
Why didn't you tell me? Because I knew how you would react.
No! How was I supposed to react? Sarah, we're no longer good girls, okay? We're fugitives now, murderers.
And you think that's my fault? Do I hate this fucking situation? Yes.
But I never said that.
Fuck! Do you remember what you did when my dad and mom died? Snuck us in Aunty Felicia's house and watch Karashika all night.
This girl.
You wrote a long list telling your parents why they needed to take me in.
You're my best friend.
And you're mine too.
Okay? My girl.
Where's your sim? Mm? It's in Chicago! This came in for you.
What is it? It's from the murder hotel where the rich boy died.
Oh man, I've been waiting ages for this.
You're too serious with this case.
Remember the elephant, slow and steady, unless you are getting paid.
Attention! At ease.
Is everybody here? Yes, sir! Good.
Because this is coming straight from the IG's office.
Kola Ademola's murder case is to take precedence over any other case.
Sarah Duru and Kemi Sanya are now officially the only suspects in this matter.
You are to look for them and bring them in, dead or alive.
- Is that clear? - Yes, sir! You're dismissed.
Attention! May I speak freely, sir? When have you never? Why is the IG suddenly getting involved in all of this? Isn't it obvious? - High profile murder case? - Mm.
- Everyone wants answers.
- Oh.
Hey, I thought you said you had a lead in Port Harcourt.
Dead end.
Besides I got another lead right here in Lagos.
The girls are here in Lagos? No.
The hotel sent in some CCTV footage from that night.
You'll never guess who it is? An old friend.
Did you not hear what I just said? Only the girls are suspects.
Yeah, but No other.
Ah, sh Shit! Mm.
Look's like we ran out of luck, and a car.
Shit! Ugh.
This place This won't help.
Shit! Bros, I beg Shit.
You've never actually been to my house, you know? Even when Kola and I were together.
So, what's up? I wanted to find out, did, uh Kola ever get short with you? Angry, mad? What do you mean? Well, did, uh, he, you know, ever Hit me? Yeah, did he? You need to go.
Abasiama, I didn't mean to offend you.
I Kola is dead.
Why are you going round asking these questions? It's really important that I find out.
I need to know.
Does Uduak know that you're going around asking these questions? Get out of my house.
Now! I'm sorry.
Listen, maybe the person you need to speak to is Princess.
I hear she's back in town.
On Wednesday, May 17th, 2021, at approximately 1:41 a.
, officers were dispatched to the Yellow Daffodil Hotel in Lagos, for a discovery of a dead body.
The officers found the victim, who was later identified as Kola Ademola, buried in a shallow grave.
His death was ruled a homicide.
The suspects in this case, a certain Miss Sarah Duru and Miss Kemi Sanya, were sighted yesterday in the Makoko area, but they managed to evade the police.
But on a cautionary note, these ladies are armed and considered very dangerous.
Let's go.
Are you guys okay? Do you need a lift? No, thank you.
Are you sure? This is not a very busy road.
We're probably the only car you're going to see in a couple of hours.
We can drop you at the nearest bus stop, if you like.
- Okay.
- Kemi Yeah, let's go Let's go.
- Thank you.
- Thanks.
Thank you.
How far are you guys going? Okegun Town.
If this isn't a sign, then I don't know what it is.
Uh, we're actually headed that way, but I need to make a quick stop at mine and we'll be on our way.
Is that okay? Yeah, sure.
You two are some lucky ladies.
You know this guy? - Should I? - Take a look.
I don't know him.
Sure about that? One hundred.
That you? Now, this was taken at the hotel the same night that Kola Ademola was killed.
What were you doing there? - Business.
- What kind of business? This and that.
You know me now, standard hustle.
Bro, all these questions you're asking.
What are you hoping to find? Why'd you get kicked off the premises? They said I was making too much noise.
You know me now.
No, I believe you.
I really do.
I believe you were there for business.
Mm? The business of killing Kola Ademola.
Huh? You were hired to kill Kola Ademola.
But somehow he got onto you, and you got ejected from the premises.
Now, he may have gotten rid of you then.
But you came back, didn't you? You came back and you finished the job.
Do you have any evidence? That's yours.
I bet my life on it.
Man, if you don't have evidence, I can't help you.
You don't go disappearing on me now.
I'll be back.
Um, I'll just grab my stuff and we'll be on our way.
I, uh, may be out of line for saying this, but you look exhausted.
It's been a very long couple of weeks.
I think you and Sarah should spend the night.
Eat, rest.
Start again tomorrow.
The doctor won't mind.
Come on.
Let's see what he says.
Yeah, Honorable Minister.
Yeah, Femi Ademola here.
Please kindly call me back when you get this call.
All right.
Fuck! Man, this man is just avoiding my calls for nothing.
I'm guessing someone else is offering a bigger piece of the action.
- No, that doesn't make any sense - Sorry, sir, but he said it was urgent.
It's okay.
I'll handle it.
Yeah, we'll talk about this later.
I didn't realize we had an appointment.
We didn't.
May I? I'm gonna try not to take up too much of your time.
How may I help you? You could start with answering a few questions.
Haven't we done that already? Uh, some new evidence has come around.
I was hoping you'd kind of help to shed some light on that.
- I already told you everything I know.
- Of course.
You know this man? No.
Are you sure? - I don't know him.
- Take your time.
I don't know him.
Hmm? I mean, of what use is he to you anyway? Because you and I know it's Sarah and her friend that are the real culprits.
Well, you can't be too thorough in situations like this.
I don't know him.
Maybe I'll have better luck with your mother.
Hey, you you can't do that.
Okay, you can't.
She's been through a lot lately, and she can't be subjected to such questioning again.
Fair enough.
Maybe I could just speak to your sister.
Listen, Timeyin is in the UK trying to complete her studies.
I don't know what this is all about.
Look, I can give you her number.
Call her to find things out.
But I can guarantee you one thing, she doesn't know him.
Okay? Thanks for your time.
- Your photo.
- Keep it.
I got plenty more.
Hello? Mommy, how are you? They are calling you and Kemi killers on the news.
I'm sorry, Mommy.
He was going to kill me, we didn't have a choice.
You are now the subject of gossip.
You hate me? I was so sure I did.
Then your father had a stroke.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, Mommy.
I'm sorry that when you wanted to talk to me I didn't listen.
Do not let them catch you, because I will not lose you.
I love you.
Sarah, is that is that you? Where are you? What's up? Come on, they've made dinner for us.
See? - Wow! - Oh Thank you so much.
Thank you.
You're most welcome.
- Thank you, uh - Ah.
for agreeing to see me so late.
No problem.
- Can I get you a drink? Waiter - No, no, I'm good.
- You sure? - Yeah.
You ever remember seeing this guy with Kola? No.
Who is he? Career criminal, armed robbery and such.
But I won't put murder past him.
You think he killed him? Well, that's what I'm trying to find out.
Kola didn't hang around dodgy types.
In fact, he hated them.
What about his brother, Femi.
Femi Femi talks a good game, right? But he didn't have the balls to play with the big dogs.
I see.
The person who would hang around a character like this would be Timeyin.
- Ah.
- Yeah.
Great kid, but her habit got the best of her.
Habit? Yeah, alcohol, cocaine, prescription pills.
We all thought she'd take over the family company, but she ended up in rehab.
- Yeah.
- Rehab, huh? In the UK? Last I checked, uh, she was in some extreme Christian rehab somewhere in town.
I don't think I can move.
I swear, even me.
But I do have to go.
Really? What? - Yeah.
- I thought you'd stay with us.
I would, but the good doctor only has one spare room, and after the shift I had, I need a decent rest.
No offense to your couch.
None taken.
- I'll walk you out.
- Okay.
All right, ladies.
Good night.
- I'll see you bright and early.
- Good night.
- Thank you.
- Good night.
What's up? - Are you okay? - Mm.
I'm feeling better.
It's okay.
Um - Here, take this.
- Thank you.
- I'll see you.
- Okay.
You're kissing her nape ♪ And her face ♪ She'll pull you firmly there anyway ♪ Hey.
Have a drink with me.
I won't take no for an answer.
Watch with all the subtle disdain ♪ She looked beyond you ♪
