Blue Bloods s06e09 Episode Script

Hold Outs

(distant siren wailing) (spits) Hey, old man.
Give me your money.
Come on! (blade clicks) You know what time it is.
I know what time it is.
Get down on the ground.
JANKO: Police! Don't move! Get on your knees! Get on your knees! JAMIE: Police! Hold it! JANKO: On your knees! On your knees! Hands in the air! (man grunts, horn honks) (horn beeps, man shouts) JAMIE: Police! Stop! (panting) (man groaning) (dogs barking fiercely) (barking, growling) (sighs) Come on, Lady Five-O, we ain't even did nothing.
Right.
You nice boys were just out for a little midnight stroll.
Exactly.
JAMIE: You guys were just welcoming us to the neighborhood.
Yo, look, for real, us three here, we didn't even know he was gonna hold you up.
Sit down.
Not even.
JAMIE: Sit down.
Last month, there have been over half a dozen armed robberies on that block.
And every one of them went down just like the one you boys tried to pull tonight.
Really? We didn't know nothing about no robberies.
Right? Robberies? Nope.
Nice act, Schlenger.
JAMIE: Hang on.
You guys didn't want anyone to get hurt, right? No doubt.
You guys were just the look-out, right? Just making sure no cops were coming up the block? That's it right there.
We were just the look-out.
We weren't looking to hurt nobody.
Well, I'm happy to hear you guys say that.
And so we get off, then, right? Unfortunately, the legal term for what you just confessed to is called "acting in concert.
" Say what? It means you're just as guilty as your friend who pulled the knife.
Oh, my God! Nah, nah! What?! Come on, man! Yep, that's what the law says.
That's tough! Victory is mine, people, victory is mine! It's a great day for the criminal justice system.
(applause) Thank you, thank you.
And you are welcome.
Let me guess-- you won? No, I didn't win.
Winning is for losers.
I crushed, I obliterated, I annihilated it.
Feeling pretty good about yourself, now, are ya? No.
You know what I'm feeling good about? These-- three days at the beach, toes in the sand, book in my hand, and nothing on my plate.
Yeah, about that-- the D.
A.
just called.
No, no, no, no, no-- I'm already out the door.
Assistant District Attorney Blake's jury hung on a homicide she was trying.
Judge declared a mistrial.
D.
A.
wants you to take over.
The D.
A.
wants me to take over Kelly Blake's case? (chuckles): Wow, she must be thrilled about that.
WOMAN: No, not very.
Thought your case was a slam dunk.
You're enjoying this already, aren't you? No, not very.
You just cost me three days on the beach.
(throws tickets down) Olivia, isn't there anything we can do to make you more comfortable? Would you like to sit? Thank you, Commissioner, but these days, once I sit, I can never get back up.
And we're about Okay.
How far along are you? A day past due.
Wow.
Can't come soon enough.
(both laugh) Boy or girl? Uh we've decided to wait.
Mm.
The old-fashioned way.
Maybe we should get down to the press room before junior makes his or her grand entrance.
Okay.
Manny you okay? Yes, sir.
I'm just, uh there's a lot going on.
Well, get used to it.
You're about to be NYPD and a dad.
I just want you to know what a great honor this is, your taking the time to do this.
The honor's mine.
(door opens) Commissioner.
Shall we, everybody? It's not like they're gonna start without me.
BLAKE: Two months ago, Victor and Louise Kendrick are victims of a carjacking by this man, Angel Granderson.
Thank you.
Victor Kendrick makes the fateful mistake of struggling with Angel, and he got shot three times with a .
38.
He got a record? No.
Two priors for you guessed it-- carjacking.
He gave an alibi that didn't hold, and we had the star witness-- the victim's wife, Louise Kendrick.
She was in the passenger seat-- she saw the whole thing go down, and she immediately picked Angel out of the lineup.
Sounds good.
Where'd you go wrong? I didn't go wrong.
You did if we're having this conversation, and I'm pretty sure we are.
I got stuck with a bad juror.
Elliot North-- this guy this guy was a problem, the whole trial, for both sides.
Retired, bored, looking to be a fly in the ointment.
And it could happen to anyone, even you.
Your point? (clears throat) Speak to the D.
A.
And say what? Due respect this is my case.
Okay, I put in the legwork-- I should be the one who gets to see it through.
Was your case, and you didn't see it through.
Due respect.
You know what I meant.
Look, you and I have managed to coexist around here because we share a mutual understanding that it's better if we exist far apart from each other.
Now, I don't want this case any more than you want me to have it, but have it I do, and there's not a damn thing either one of us can do about it.
Great.
Good talk.
And for the record, none of these are our cases.
We represent the people of the City of New York.
Really? Gonna go high road on me, huh? Just get me the numbers and the addresses of the juror and Mrs.
Kendrick.
Those are my files now.
(sighs heavily) and will faithfully discharge my duties as a police officer in the New York City Police Department, so help me God.
Congratulations.
Nice going.
(chuckles): Thank you.
GARRETT: We can take just a few questions.
Uh, Commissioner, how does it feel to swear in the man who you rescued as a little baby, Well I guess maybe it's like a seed was planted that day and now we get to celebrate the harvest.
REPORTER: Mr.
Francisco, is that why you became a cop, because of the commissioner's hand in saving your life? Well, a police officer's first job is to protect life.
But with that responsibility, also comes an opportunity to change lives.
I was fortunate enough to have someone in my life who did both for me.
And now it's my turn, to pay it forward.
GARRETT: Thank you very much for joining us today.
Commissioner? Commissioner, it's been a few weeks since the mayor won reelection.
You haven't said whether or not you'll be staying on as commissioner for his next term.
Well, that wouldn't be for me to say.
I serve at the pleasure of the mayor.
Are you saying he hasn't yet asked you to continue as commissioner? I'm saying we haven't yet had that conversation.
MALE REPORTER: But you do expect he'll ask you? I expect he will, if he wants me back.
If he doesn't, he won't.
Warren, Angela, Robert, thank you, that will be all for today.
Thank you.
ANGELA: Are you saying you may not come back? There's no hidden meaning here.
I don't call that shot; the mayor does.
Well, assuming the mayor does ask, you would continue as commissioner, correct? Assuming he asks you'll know my answer.
That's how the world works.
Mrs.
Kendrick, I just want to thank you for taking the time out to sit with me.
Of course.
I just thought we should get to know each other before the new trial.
I still I just can't believe it.
I know you're upset and I know it's hard, and I am so sorry.
What that juror did, it's like a slap in the face.
How can just one person be allowed to do this? Well, I'm sure you're aware, in a criminal proceeding, the jury's verdict must be unanimous.
Even if one of them is I-I don't want to be rude, but A.
D.
A.
Blake pegged him as a problem from the get-go.
Well, I'm not sure she should have mentioned that to you, but let's look at it this way-- we have the advantage here to improve our case before the new trial.
I will never forget the look of death in Angel Granderson's eyes the night he took my Victor from me, just the same way it did, every day, in that courtroom.
So please forgive me if I can't get giddy about a new trial.
No, I understand, and again, I'm sorry, and I would feel exactly the same way if I were in your shoes.
Unfortunately, we don't have a choice.
Do you even know why that juror voted not guilty? I'm going to see him later on this afternoon.
Give him this.
And then you tell him that in my book, he is now an accomplice to my Victor's murder.
(chief shouting instructions) Excuse me, sir, is this your car? Was my car.
Did you see who did it? No, but I can tell you who did it, anyway.
It was the damn gang.
They're tormenting this neighborhood.
It's like, every day it's a different thing.
We know.
We arrested three of them just the other night.
We thought that would send a message.
I guess it didn't.
Excuse me, sir, do you live around here? Nope, but I own a few of these buildings.
Maybe you can help us out-- do you know of any gang members that are living in any of your buildings? Oh, I'd love to help you out, but we're talking about gangs.
Officer, what's going on? Why does this keep happening? We honestly don't know.
But you have my word-- we're gonna put an end to this.
Well, that was interesting.
Huh? I seem to recall a guy who looks just like you once telling me that a cop should never make a promise that they can't keep.
I intend to keep it.
Something doesn't add up.
These guys hit again just a couple of days after we lock a bunch of them up? They're a gang.
That's what they do.
Hit the same block half a dozen times in under a month? Well, one block that we know of.
Maybe they're terrorizing the whole neighborhood but just not reporting it.
I don't think so.
I checked-- it's just this block.
And nothing in this or any surrounding precincts.
Then you're right.
We better find out why.
(doorbell rings) MAN: Who is it? It's Erin Reagan.
We spoke on the phone earlier.
And I told you I've got nothing to say.
I was just hoping for a few minutes of your time, sir.
I did my civic duty.
I served on that jury and voted my conscience.
And we appreciate that.
It's only because of citizens like you that our criminal justice system works.
What the hell else do you want? I was just trying to understand why you voted not guilty.
Why do you think? 'Cause that guy didn't do it.
There's 11 other jurors who disagree.
Those 11 other jurors were morons.
Can I come in and you tell me why? Is this even legal? I thought a member of the jury wasn't supposed to talk about the case.
That's only true during the trial.
Afterwards you're free to discuss it as you please.
Five minutes.
Thank you.
(indistinct chatter, cameras clicking and whirring) Afternoon, everyone.
Uh, DCPI Moore has briefed me that we have lot of ground to cover and limited time, so let's try to help each other out by Commissioner, have you heard from the mayor yet? by sticking to the updates and clarifications prioritized in the handouts.
I am pleased to report that, uh, last month we've seen violent crime numbers take a precipitous drop.
Any indication if he'll be asking you to stay on as commissioner? Guys, we have a lot to get through here today, so if you'd let us please FEMALE REPORTER: Or are we missing the lead-- do you even want to come back? Pardon me? When asked the other day how you would respond if the mayor offered to keep you on for four more years, you chose not to respond.
That's true.
Because? Because? Because that's between me and the mayor.
Because some matters should be decided between the principals and then, once resolved, released to the press.
Due respect, sir, you still haven't answered my question.
Due respect, your question boils down to exactly how are the sausages made? I don't think that's anybody's business but mine and the mayor's at this juncture.
Are you saying you'll only answer questions that you deem appropriate? I didn't say that.
You implied it.
Stop.
Sir! Enough.
I don't know.
How about that? Whatever the question is, there's your answer: I don't know.
Is this absolutely necessary? I don't trust many people.
And definitely not you.
You have a problem with me, sir? You're a white lawyer.
I see.
And you don't like white lawyers? I don't trust white people.
I don't trust lawyers.
So you do the math.
Mr.
North, let me ask you something.
Is it possible that you voted the way you did because the defendant is black? Let me ask you something.
Is it possible the other jurors voted the way that they did just because the defendant was black? I see your point.
Good.
But for the record, no.
I did not vote to acquit for that reason.
I voted not guilty because I don't think he did it.
Despite all the evidence to the contrary.
Not all the evidence.
Such as? Such as how come we never heard from the other eyewitness? The other eyewitness? The police report that was submitted into evidence stated, right there, that there was another witness who said the shooter was a white man.
You're sure about this? Hand to God.
Anthony, it's me.
You busy? Immensely.
Not anymore you're not.
I need you to pull up a 61 on the Victor Kendrick murder.
What's in it for me? Your job.
Keep dreaming.
I work for the district attorney, I'm only loaned out to you.
You find it yet or not? I got it.
I got it.
What's up? Did the cops on the scene take a statement from an eyewitness other than the victim's wife? Depends.
Is the victim's wife a drug-addled, thrice-collared prostitute? Uh, no, she's not.
Then, yes, they did.
What is this? It is the complaint report on the Kendrick homicide.
So you've read it? We're not 1L's anymore, so what do you say we skip the Socratic method and you get to the point? Fine by me.
Who the hell is Robin Dunn? Oh! Oh.
You don't tell me there's a second eyewitness and the best you can come up with is "Oh"? First off, Robin Dunn is a prostitute with a history of arrests.
She's hardly a dream witness.
It's a murder case.
Not every witness is gonna be Mr.
Belvedere.
And secondly, we tried to locate her.
The police scoured the neighborhood and her last known-- she probably skipped town.
At which point I can only assume you asked for a continuance so you could have more time to locate her.
Look, we had a rock-solid case.
Louise Kendrick was in the car.
She picked Angel Granderson out of a lineup.
Granderson has previous arrests for carjacking and fit the description perfectly.
And I will take that, any day, over some vague description given by crackhead street walker, and so would you.
So, no, you did not ask for a continuance? Quit being such a Girl Scout.
We were running out of time.
The D.
A.
agreed with me that we should proceed with the case we had, So that's what I did.
Check with your C.
I.
's and the NYPD, I want you to find this girl.
I'm on it.
Where are you going? To do your job.
I want you to put your wallets on the ground and put hands in the air.
Now! Police! Hold it right there! FEMALE OFFICER: Don't move! On the ground! On the ground! Don't move, hands in the air! Get down on the ground! Get on the ground! Get on the ground! (siren wails, stops) (grunts) I was kind of hoping you'd do that.
Yeah, whatever, man.
GARRETT: The mayor wants this controversy shut down.
Controversy? Can we please temper the rhetoric a little? All right-- disagreement.
Mountain out of a molehill, more like it.
The point is he'd like to ask you to stay aboard.
Is that so? Yes.
Then what's stopping him from setting up a meeting? What with standing on ceremony all of a sudden? You guys have four years of work together.
Which I think has earned me the courtesy and respect of a formal offer.
Give it up.
He wants to know that you'll accept.
Ah.
Well.
There it is.
There are members of his inner circle pushing him to consider other candidates.
As there have been from day one.
He doesn't want to be left exposed, if you have doubts of your own.
He needs to ask me himself.
He strenuously advises that you accept the offer as is.
Strenuously advises? How the hell does one exactly do that? Is he actively working every muscle in his body as he advises? Frank, this isn't funny.
It kind of is.
Then you're the only one laughing.
The man was reelected weeks ago and this is the first time anyone from his camp has even mentioned it to me.
I am not from his camp.
Even worse.
I'm trying to help out in a situation And what you're bringing me sounds more like an ultimatum than an invitation.
It's an offer.
Garret, I read the papers.
He has met with everyone the past couple weeks, from soup to nuts.
Are you feeling neglected? Is that why you're playing this out in the press? I am not playing anything out.
I answered their questions honestly.
What do you want me to tell the mayor's office? That I'm available to meet.
Have you heard a thing I've said? They want some guarantees.
I guarantee I'll show up.
Come on, Frank.
He is the boss.
Yes, he is.
And I serve at the pleasure of the mayor.
But only so long as it is my pleasure to serve.
(alarm buzzes, lock clicks) Who are you? I'm Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan.
I'll be prosecuting the retrial.
Where's the other skirt? If you're referring to A.
D.
A.
Blake, she's no longer on the case.
Too bad.
She got legs for days.
Well, I'll be sure to pass that along.
Hm.
Mr.
Granderson, you do realize that you are facing the minimum sentence of 12 years here.
Is what it is.
Well, if that's how you really feel, why don't you save us all a lot of time and money and just plead guilty? 'Cause I didn't do it.
She got legs for days.
What? She do.
You don't sound like someone who believes he's innocent.
We both know how this goes.
You know, a lot of hooting and hollering by me ain't gonna change a damn thing.
Okay.
Well, then I hope you enjoy your stay with us and I will see you in court.
Wait.
I'm sorry.
Did you kill Victor Kendrick? Hell, no.
You've been arrested in three other carjackings, all with the same methodology.
What? They were all done the same way this one was done: guy in a hoodie puts a gun in the driver's face, demands the car.
Almost the same.
Let's just say if I did those other carjackings, I would have never used a loaded gun.
Come on, you expect me to believe that? It's true.
Prove it.
Can't.
Well, then, I guess I can't help you.
Look When I was ten years old, my baby brother-- we were playing on our stoop.
Next thing I know-- pop, pop, pop! It was chaos everywhere.
And when I looked down, my baby brother was dying at my feet.
No way I could ever blast on somebody.
(phone ringing) Yeah, what's up? Hey, it's Anthony.
I know.
What do you got? A dead prostitute.
I think you should get down here.
(radio chatter; distant siren wails, horn blares) I just want to say for the record, I don't like that look in your eyes.
What am I doing? You're turning your wheels.
And that's bad? Usually.
I just want to know who killed that poor girl.
Poor girl? Are we working on the same case? 'Cause I'm on the one with the hooker, not the soccer mom.
Justice is blind, Anthony.
Yeah, and dead hookers are easier to find than yellow cabs.
Yeah, usually from suicides and OD, not a bullet between their eyes.
So she ran afoul of some nut-job John, or a pissed-off pimp.
Or a murderer who killed her because she was the only eyewitness who could put him away.
Now you write Lifetime movies? Come on.
That body's been there for weeks.
You and I both know the coroner's gonna date it back to the Kendrick murder.
Okay, okay, you got a point; a very small point.
I met with Angel Granderson today.
Oh, no.
And I don't Don't think he did it.
think he did it.
My gut tells me he's a really bad guy who's done a lot of bad things.
I don't think he did this thing.
And if your golden gut is wrong? It's not.
(sighs) Well, if Granderson didn't do it, then you know who the next likely suspect is.
The victim's wife Louise.
That's right.
So you think that everything Louise Kendrick said is a lie? I'm becoming more open to that possibility.
And why would she do all that unless she herself was involved in her husband's murder? She wouldn't.
See? Now you know why I hate when your wheels start turning.
Here you go.
Here, have a seat.
You know when we add these four goons to the three my partner and I locked up the other day, it's like damn near arrested half your gang.
Heavy is the head that wears the crown, huh? What? Just saying.
Not a great week for you as boss, but maybe there's something you can do to fix that.
Here we go, hmm? Time for Let's Make a Deal.
Guess what? Rainey don't deal.
You could save you and your boys a lot of jail time if you come clean about what's really going on.
You know what, man? I don't even, like, understand a single thing you saying.
Sure you do.
You're smarter than you play.
Why would you and your crew hit the same block six times in a month? I ain't saying nothing.
If someone else is behind this, maybe we could trade up.
Get you and your crew a year, maybe just probation.
You know what, man? You're right.
I am smart.
Smart enough to know that the most we gonna get is six months, probably three (chuckles) if we wear ties to court.
(chuckling) Yeah, you're right, except there's this little known section of the penal law that I discovered when I was at law school.
It's called "enterprise corruption.
" Hmm.
I won't bore you with the details, but basically what it says is, since you've repeated the same crime multiple times, minimum for you is five years upstate.
Please.
(laughing): You ain't go to no law school.
You just a cop.
(handcuffs rattling) Let's go.
(distant siren chirping) GORMLEY: Would you stop? You're being crazy.
You don't understand.
Brian and I just bought the house last year.
So? So, Lord knows the commissioner has earned the right to say when he's done, but if he is Stop right here.
First of all, you're an NYPD detective.
Even if the boss calls it quits, no way you're losing your job.
But I would be transferred.
And second of all, it's not gonna happen.
Is he in? He's wrapping up a phone call.
Garrett, would you do me a favor and tell her she's got nothing to worry about? You got nothing to worry about.
See? You're golden.
Thank you.
Sure.
What did I just tell her not to worry about? She's getting herself all worked up about this brouhaha with the boss.
She actually thinks he might be putting in his papers.
Wait a second.
You don't think he's done, do you? You do?! (sighs): Oh.
Know what that means for me? Staten Island.
Look, I don't know how this plays out.
What I do know is, it's not a good idea for us to sit around here talking about it.
I'm not going to Staten Island-- no way.
NICKY: Do we even know who he's talking to? No, but it's got to be somebody important, or he wouldn't take the call now.
Maybe it's the mayor.
Whoever it is, it's none of our business.
Can we ask him when he comes down? No.
Why not? 'Cause he said so.
Right, and because of what Aunt Linda said-- it's not our business.
It is, and it isn't.
What do you mean? Meaning if he doesn't re-up, it affects everybody at this table to some degree.
DANNY: And we will support him no matter what decision he makes.
But what if it's the wrong decision? There is no wrong decision.
There isn't? No.
Last thing this city needs is losing Dad as the PC.
Why is that? Show me another candidate who's got his chops.
Okay, well, take away our slant 'cause he's our dad, and there's plenty of candidates.
Forget the slant.
How many others have a whole previous career as an NYPD cop? That's something Dad brings that nobody else does.
HENRY: Jamie's got a point.
But that isn't your point, is it? DANNY: No.
Look, it's true, Dad has been a cop for most of his life, so can you imagine how hard it's gonna be to walk away? I mean, for him, moving on's gonna be less like letting go and more like letting go of an arm or a leg.
Yeah.
If he needs our support, he's gonna need our support to let go.
Support is only worth what it costs you to give it.
So, I say we be smart and take the cue from Dad on this one.
Copy? NICKY: Copy.
Copy that.
Copy.
So what is it we were talking about? Anything but the elephant in the room.
Last season's Knicks.
He hasn't gotten over that yet.
(laughing): Who has? They're basketball, right? (scoffs) Yes, Mom.
FRANK: Sorry.
I had to take that call.
It's okay.
(clears his throat) (Erin clears her throat) So where were we? The Knicks.
LINDA: Oh, last season was a bust.
FRANK: Mm.
Yeah, Carmello's just got to go.
JACK: Phil Jackson's got to step up.
SEAN: Mm-hmm.
JAMIE: True.
DANNY: Mm-hmm.
It was the cardinal.
LINDA: Oh, well, the cardinal's got to step up, too.
(Nicky laughs) No.
That's who I was on the phone with.
Cardinal Brennan.
Oh.
Hmm.
Why the cardinal? When I'm in a tough spot, he often helps.
And did he? Don't know yet.
He assumes I know more scripture than I do, so I always have to look stuff up to find out what the advice actually was.
(laughter) Looks good.
Shall we eat? HENRY: Sure.
And thank you, all of you, for the elbow room.
Bless us, O Lord, for these ALL: Thy gifts which we are about to receive through Thy bounty.
Through Christ, Our Lord.
Amen.
Now, in the last trial, you said that when Angel Granderson approached, your husband resisted at first.
(sighs) I told him not to.
I told him just to do whatever he said, but But he didn't.
Then you say the carjacker reached in and tried to grab the keys.
That's right.
Okay.
Great.
What hand? Huh? Oh, what hand did the carjacker use when he reached into the car? Oh.
Um You don't remember? No, I-I I do.
It was his right hand.
Huh.
That's interesting.
Granderson is left-handed.
Maybe I got that wrong.
Yeah, yeah.
You're right, it-it was his left.
He reached in with his left hand.
Are you sure? Because it's important that we're firm with these facts.
Yes, positive.
It was his left hand.
Great.
Great.
Now, after he couldn't get the keys, that's when you say Granderson shot your husband.
(sighing): That's right in cold blood.
Yes.
What hand was he holding the gun? What? I? Oh, you just said that he reached in with his left hand to grab the keys, so he must have been holding the gun in his right hand, is that correct? I I guess.
So Granderson shot your husband with his non-dominant hand? I-I, I don't Look, everything happened so fast.
I-I don't even know what I know.
I probably blocked the whole thing out.
You have to understand.
(crying) (sniffles) My husband's blood was all over me.
Pieces of his brain in my hair.
Okay.
You know, um, we don't have to do this right now.
I'm sorry.
I No, no, no, no, no.
You're still grieving.
And we can do this another time.
(sobbing) I I'll just let myself out, okay? (crying) So? How'd it go? Like Sarah Palin fielding foreign policy questions.
You know, I-I always thought that poor girl got a bad rap, you know that? That's great, Anthony.
Is Louise making a call? She's making one right now.
She is on the move.
Stay down.
Okay.
Why are we here and where is she going? (shutter snapping) You got who she's on with yet? I don't have a name yet.
ERIN: Uh, who is this guy? ANTHONY: Could be anybody.
Maybe it's her brother.
(Erin scoffs) (camera shutter snapping) I hope that's not her brother.
(computer beeps) ANTHONY: Well, look at you, golden gut.
What is it? Mystery man's number just popped.
His name is Richard Hart.
He's in the system.
Two-time loser.
Both felonies.
Aggravated assault, attempted murder with a .
38 snub nose.
That's our guy.
Maybe.
You know it is.
I also know that O.
J.
did it.
Lot of good that did my bank account.
You bet on the O.
J.
verdict? What, you didn't? You're a really strange guy, you know that? Tell me something I don't already know.
Well, O.
J.
got off because Marcia Clark didn't know how to squeeze the Juice.
Hi.
Thanks for coming down.
Please, have a seat.
You know, uh, I've been thinking about what you said about what hand Granderson used and all.
I think I was right the first time.
He reached in with his right hand, and he shot Victor with his left.
Great.
That's great.
That's very helpful.
Can you tell me who Richard Hart is? What? Who is Richard Hart? I don't I don't know anyone by that name.
That's interesting.
Because you make quite a few phone calls to him.
Okay, I know him, but he's just a friend.
Yeah.
I think he's your boyfriend.
And for quite some time, based on those phone records.
Oh, God.
Okay.
Yes, he's someone I've been involved with.
Look, I'm not proud of it.
Which is why you never told this office or the police? I knew how it would come across.
Husband is shot dead and wife is having an affair.
I mean, we all know what that would look like.
Like you had your husband killed so you can start a new life.
That is not what happened.
I think it is.
Okay.
I think I need a lawyer.
Yeah.
That's probably a good idea.
But the truth is I think it's a little late for that.
Oh, no.
Yeah, bad move getting involved with a two-time felon.
See, one more felony conviction and Richie goes away for life.
Unless he cooperates.
Richie loves me.
He wouldn't say a thing.
Yeah.
He said everything.
About how you two carried out the murder of your beloved Victor, as well as killing Robin Dunn, the only eyewitness that could contradict your testimony.
(gasping): Wait.
Wait.
This was all Richie's idea.
I will tell you anything you need to know.
Yeah.
He thought you might say that.
Which is why he was smart enough to record all your phone conversations.
You're under arrest.
You got my money? (quietly): Lower your voice.
That's two G's.
Be here same time next week.
No way.
We out.
What do you mean out? Job isn't done.
Too much heat.
There's cops all over the block now.
A deal's a deal.
Two grand a week, every week, until the old bastards get the message and start moving out of my buildings.
Police.
You're under arrest.
Get up.
Hands behind your back.
Oh, I didn't do anything.
You little punk.
(handcuffs rattling) (handcuffs clicking) Manny.
Commissioner.
I know you have more than a full plate.
I can't thank you enough for coming down.
Oh, of course I came.
Olivia and I both hate that we've imposed on you this way.
Oh, nonsense.
Gives me a chance to get a jump on recruiting the boy or girl? Boy.
You have a son.
Congratulations.
Thank you.
Would you like to meet him? I'd love to.
(baby fussing) Commissioner.
Congratulations.
Thank you.
Lucky for you, he got his mother's good looks.
Would you like to hold him? Oh, no, I'm a little out of practice.
No, please.
Okay.
Okay.
(grunts) (chuckles) What's his name? We'd like to name him after you.
Francis.
Just Francis, though.
Not Francis Xavier.
One piece of advice.
Please.
With a name like Francis Francisco, you better teach him how to throw a left hook.
Okay? Oh, you came to see the baby.
How sweet of you.
Actually, I came to see you.
The mayor's office called.
A gap opened up in his schedule.
And I need to know this, why? He's inviting you up.
Uh-huh.
You're clear for the next hour.
So, weeks go by and then I get called in on ten minutes' notice? Don't look at it like that.
Oh, come on, Garrett.
How long do you think you can do this? I don't know.
Look, Garrett, I'm closer to the end than the beginning.
So, some of this stuff, I just don't have it in me to care anymore.
About the job? No.
I care about the job.
It's the rest of it.
The posturing, the little digs, the wasting my time.
What do you want me to tell them? (sighs) Tell them I'll stay on until the mayor gets his head out of his ass.
(elevator bell dings) So, indefinitely.
But if anybody asks me what indefinitely means They better duck? Exactly.
