Burn Notice s07e03 Episode Script

Down Range

My name is Michael Westen.
I used to be a spy until We got a burn notice on you.
You're blacklisted.
When you're burned, you've got nothing.
No cash, no credit, no job history.
You're stuck in whatever city they decide to dump you in.
- Where am I? - Miami.
You do whatever work comes your way.
You rely on anyone who's still talking to you A trigger-happy girlfriend Should we shoot them? An old friend who used to inform on you to the FBI You know spies-- bunch of bitchy little girls.
Family too Hey, is that your mom again? If you're desperate.
Someone needs your help, Michael.
And a down-and-out spy you met along the way.
That's how we do it, people.
Bottom line, as long as you're burned, you're not going anywhere.
This is the only offer you will get.
We're going after the leader of a terrorist network based in the Dominican Republic.
- Burke.
- I got a job coming up.
I was hoping you might be right for it.
I'll be in touch, but I want you to keep a low profile until I get back.
And be ready.
Michael Westen was still working for the CIA.
You are going to put me in touch with him.
Fi, it's time to be brave, little angel.
For spies, the hardest part of operating in the field isn't combat.
When bullets are flying, there's never really time to think.
But in the quiet hours, when you're alone, thinking is all you can do.
Spies don't make a habit of holding on to keepsakes for the same reason prisoners serving life sentences stop seeing visitors.
As much as you might want that connection to your past life, there comes a point when a constant reminder of what you can never have is just too painful.
And you can't have distractions like that when you have to focus on a job.
Whoa, that's a good look.
Beard get too hot? Well, I figure whatever the next job is, I shouldn't look like the guy on the news.
Speaking of, what is the next job? We're gonna steal a truck.
- And the truck's in the bar? - No.
The gentleman who's going to help us is.
A local guy I've used before.
He's got his own crew.
If you need a crew, I have two guys in Miami.
No, that's all right, thanks.
Let's do it this way.
Mechoso.
Hey,┬┐que pasa? Bien, bien.
Who's he? He's just a guy standing by a table.
So you and your boys, you can do this job? I took a look.
We crash the gate, we hit it hard.
It's no problem.
Okay.
But I do want to discuss one thing-- my price, it just went up.
- Did it? - Yeah.
'Cause I did some, uh, how do you say? Research.
That truck you want to steal, it belongs to that company that's all over the news, the one with the building that just blew up.
That's none of your business, Mechoso.
Well, I made it my business.
I hear they lost a bunch of satellite computer stuff.
$25 million worth.
You blow up the computers, they gotta bring in new ones on a truck, and you hire Mechoso to steal the truck--that about right? Ah.
You got me.
Smart plan, amigo.
- Well, you know, yeah.
- Mm.
But it's not gonna cost you no $5,000.
No.
It's going to be Hmm.
I'm only gonna tell you this one time.
Okay.
You don't want to do this.
I think I do.
Or maybe I make my dinero another way.
There are people who'd pay to know what I know.
A lot more than you're offering.
Mechoso, you know me.
You know I'm a reasonable man.
I just want a little something extra, Burke.
I think I deserve a little something extra.
Let me think.
No.
There's your little something extra.
So Tell me about your guys in Miami.
Original Air Date on June 20, 2013 Operatives working under deep cover spend a lot of time alone.
And no matter how hard you've trained for it, the isolation never gets easier.
Since every meeting you take could compromise the operation and blow your cover, even your case officer has to keep his distance.
You only get together when face-to-face contact is worth the risk of getting killed.
Oh, that's too bad.
I kind of liked the beard.
So I got your request.
And I gotta say the idea of bringing in two non-CIA personnel on a high priority CIA job strikes me as an awful idea.
Request denied.
I need Sam and Jesse on this job.
Sam has already agreed.
I called him-- Well, that's tough.
I got special forces guys coming in on a dark plane later today.
They've been training for this exact type of situation.
Burke watched me for six months before approaching me.
He's not gonna go any easier on the guys I bring in on this job.
If I use my people, my cover is theirs.
My guys are ace operators, and they've got fantastic covers.
We forged papers to make it look like you did multiple tours with them in Afghanistan.
Multiple tours, is that right? Well, then, tell me.
What happens when Burke asks what their call signs were in Kandahar, and our answers don't match? No, I'll tell you what happens.
Your ace operatives wash up on the beach, right next to my dead body.
Fine.
Use your friends.
But there's something you should know.
Those satellite uplinks you told me that Burke was stealing? Guess who he's selling them to.
Rafael Serano.
The son of a bitch behind the Berlin train bombing, the London bus terminal, and all that stuff that didn't make the papers.
So as I am now on the hook for corralling not one, but two international terrorists, I can't afford any mistakes when your friends start playing deep cover.
They'll be fine.
Here comes Porter, at the buzzer for the win.
It's up! He's good! Mr.
Axe, wanna get spanked, a little one-on-one? No, I'm good.
Your secretary told me you'd be here.
So shooting hoops at 11:00 a.
m.
Must be nice.
- I'm working, brother.
- Are you? You see that dumpy little drug den over there? My target's about to roll up in a yellow Porsche.
Think you can put your job on hold? For what? Well, remember when we told Mike we'd help him out? - Yeah.
- I just got a call.
- Where is he? - Dominican Republic.
He wasn't very forthcoming with details, but he needs backup.
Look, Sam, you know I want to help Mike out, but I got clients to answer to, man.
I can't just go running off to the D.
R.
on a random Thursday.
Tell me about it.
I was supposed to go have some extra special Sammy time with Elsa this weekend, but that ain't happening.
I guess this is serious.
Look, Jesse, it's either gonna be us going or me going.
I'm not gonna leave him hanging.
Okay.
It's gonna have to wait until tomorrow, though.
It can't.
It's gotta be today.
That's not even possible.
Fake passports don't just magically appear.
We don't need them.
The CIA's getting us a dark plane.
- Wow.
- Strong's gonna brief us at the airport in one hour.
Okay, but before we go meet Mr.
"I made Mike bug his best friends," we gotta swing by my place, so I can grab some fresh clothes.
And a shower.
The plane we're flying in is a two-seater.
Fun.
One of the problems with taking a mission out of the country is that you subtract yourself from the lives of the people you love because they're not just going to stop living, important things are going to happen, and you're going to miss them.
And this is for full custody, right? Oh, that's wonderful.
I'll be there.
Wednesday's great.
Okay, I'll see you at the courthouse.
Thank you.
But the biggest problem caused by your absence is that you're not there when the people you protect need you the most.
I couldn't help but overhear.
Adopting, huh? I'm getting custody of my grandson.
Aw, that's nice.
I bet you're a wonderful grandma.
You know, he looks more and more like his daddy every day.
Excuse me, what'd you say? Where are my manners? Leo Sapienza.
I knew your son pretty well.
So sorry for your loss.
How'd you know Nate? He was a client.
I'm in the sports entertainment industry.
You were his bookie.
He was a good guy, Nate.
I really liked him.
But the kid could not pick a team to save his life.
He lost a lot of money, a lot of money that he couldn't pay back.
Listen, my son's gambling problems were just that-- his problems, not mine.
Now if you'll excuse me Oh, actually, they've become your problems.
You see, for a while, I was collecting from Nate's ex, and she was very good about paying, so long as she had the kid.
But now she doesn't, and you do - If you touch Charlie-- - Whoa! Why would I do anything to Charlie? You pay me the 80 grand that's outstanding-- - I-I can't-- - Aw.
Everybody always says "can't.
" But I'm an optimist.
I find that people are much more resourceful than they think.
You call family.
You call friends.
You look in the couch cushions.
You'll come up with the money For Charlie.
Oh, and by the way, if you're thinking about running, just know I'm a man with a lot of powerful friends.
New York, L.
A.
, Dallas, you go here, you go there, I will know someone, and I will find you.
Hey.
Charlie! Stop it! Let me go! Charlie! Charlie, what did the man give you? I got here as fast as I could.
What's up? You sounded so upset.
I need you to watch Charlie.
What's going on? Well, a situation's come up.
I'm taking care of it.
I just need you to just stay here a few days, keep an eye on the house, make sure nobody comes around bothering Charlie.
Madeline, you can't ask me to guard Charlie without giving me a reason.
Nate's old bookie approached me in the marina today.
Apparently, Nate owed him another $80,000, and now the debt is mine.
What? It's fine.
I've called friends.
I can get the money.
I want to pay him, and that'll be the end of it.
Absolutely not.
You cannot pay this man.
I don't have a choice, Fiona.
This isn't just some bookie.
This guy is connected to the Mafia.
Well, it doesn't matter who his friends are.
Nate owed money to a lot of people.
If word gets out that you're paying off his debt, then every shark out there will smell blood and come swimming your way.
Then I-I don't know what it is you want me to do.
This guy gave a bullet to a three-year-old.
I just wish Michael were here.
Well, he isn't.
We'll take care of this ourselves.
Fi, I'm scared.
Please.
I'm worried Charlie's gonna get hurt.
Yeah, well, someone's gonna get hurt.
It won't be Charlie.
There are many advantages to flying into a country on an unregistered plane.
You don't wait in lines, you don't check bags, and you don't leave an incriminating paper trail.
The disadvantage is that without a declared flight path, you can't land at an airport.
So the best you can hope for is finding an open field and flying in low.
- You see them? - Yeah, they're headed our way.
Of course, while flying in low might keep you off the radar of the local authorities, it also means you're a lot easier to spot from the ground.
- We have a problem.
- What's that? Air traffic control just reported some local cop fishing off Playa Gringo, thinks he saw a drug plane.
No time to move the landing site.
No, they've got a visual on them by now.
Cops are gonna be here in ten minutes.
Can your guys handle the heat? Shouldn't be a problem.
You must be Mr.
Burke.
Sam Axe.
Local P.
D.
's already en route.
They're gonna come out of those trees any minute.
Well, that's not good.
We better roll out of here.
Can't.
The road doesn't connect with anything wider than a footpath for 5 miles.
We need to cut them off.
How much fuel is left in the plane? Not enough to get back to the states, but enough for what you're thinking.
Sam, I need a fuse.
Jesse, grab a flare.
We're gonna use the plane to block the road.
We have seconds! Let's move! Welcome to the team.
So Michael tells me you're pretty good at stealing things, you two.
That's funny.
I think what Mike meant to say was we are the best.
We've been pulling jobs in Miami for years.
Trucks are a personal favorite.
Well, the one I want is in that warehouse.
The first guy I talked to about this job had a plan, taking out the guards at the front gate and then pulling the truck out bloody.
Is that pretty much what you're thinking? Any idiot can throw a rock at a wasp nest.
We're the finesse guys.
We'll get your truck and make a much smaller mess.
That sounds good.
How do you do it? Well, I think the best bet's gonna be to bypass the alarm, cut through the fence closer to the warehouse.
Which one of us is going in? - I am.
- Okay, great.
So we cover Mike's approach to the truck-- What about the guards? Once the alarm's disabled, they won't be paying any attention until Mike's already headed for the exit.
The truck is heavily armored.
The door is bolted shut.
How we opening it? I'll be prying it open.
Once Mike is in, he hot-wires it, introduces pedal to floor, and just drives out.
All right, sounds good.
What happens if Michael gets in trouble, somebody spots him? Well, then I cover his escape with a sniper rifle, we regroup and figure out some other way to do this.
I like it, right until the last part.
I'm not doing this job twice.
Michael gets in trouble, if anybody spots him, you use that sniper rifle to take 'em out.
You understand? Sam, you got a problem with that? No, no problem.
Take 'em out.
Good.
"You got a problem with that?" Those were your exact words.
As it happens, I do have a problem shooting random guards.
If we're careful, it won't be necessary.
What if it is? I mean, I'm the guy with the finger on the trigger.
What's going on, Mike? This isn't like you.
This is Burke's thing.
He's calling the shots.
Well, maybe you should call the shots.
It's just not how it works, Sam! Well, how does it work, Mike? I want to find out what happened to my best friend.
You say, "Come on down here.
" And guess what.
Three hours later, poof.
We're here.
You want us to help you steal a truck.
We're gonna help you do that, but you can't keep us in the dark the whole time.
The deal I made with Strong It wasn't just to work for the CIA.
It was to get close to Burke and take him down.
Okay, and? Remember that CIA holding facility? If I don't take him down, we all go back there.
For good.
Wow.
Yeah, you said it, brother.
I think I figured out how to get rid of this Sapienza guy.
How? If you pooled together all your valuables, how much would you have? In my savings account, $24,000, plus an additional $8,000 or $10,000 if I include my jewelry.
Great.
We're gonna need all that.
Do you still have that silver pendant necklace? Yeah.
It was my mom's favorite.
- I'm gonna need that too.
- Fiona, what is this? Criminals can't keep their money in a bank.
They have to keep it in a safe or a lockbox somewhere, so we give this Sapienza guy something to squirrel away, and then we find his stash, and we take it.
- And then? - Mafia bookies-- they're only powerful if they keep bringing in cash to the big boys upstairs.
If he loses their money, he has only two choices-- run or die.
A GPS tracker can actively transmit its location from anywhere in the world.
Units small enough to hide, however, aren't usually very precise, which means even though you can follow it everywhere it goes, you won't be getting much closer than a general area.
That's why it's a good idea to pair your GPS tracker with a passive radio frequency identification tag.
You can be sure that whatever you're looking for, you'll find it.
Now you just need to call your new friend.
He's here.
You good? Yes, I am.
Hey.
Look at you.
Same day.
So You have my money, yes? I did the best I could.
This is $24,000.
Oh, that is so disappointing.
Why would you ask me to come all the way over here if you didn't have all my money? Maybe the math is over your head, but less than 80 is not 80.
I know, but it's everything I have to my name.
I took it out of my savings account.
Please take it, but I was thinking you could take my jewelry as collateral.
I see 5 grand in here, maybe 8 if the diamond is real.
You can just hold onto it until I can get you the rest of your money.
I only need a few more-- days.
You know, that's funny.
You know who else always needed a few more days? Your loser son.
And I would give them to him, and then I would show up, and he would be gone or sick or drunk, and there would be no money.
I thought that you understood what was going to happen to a little boy who lives in this house if I don't get my money.
- Just--just wait! - Oh, Charlie! Please! You know why Nate never gave you my phone number? Because he knew I'd find a way to pay.
And you're right, okay? Nate was a loser.
He was a loser and a drunk and a drug addict.
But I'm not him.
Just give me a few more days, and I will find you your money.
I promise.
You have three more days.
Three.
And just remember one more thing-- I own you.
Okay, remember, we get in, get the truck, and get out.
We got one shot at this.
One shot's all we need.
The key to getting through a high-security fence is understanding how it works.
The fence itself is usually divided into sections with a current flowing through.
Cut a section, and an alarm goes off, pinpointing the location that's been tampered with.
To compromise one of the sections, you have to match the precise current coming through the fence.
Fortunately, electric alarms usually use intermittent pulses rather than a continuous signal, which means you can tap into the system as long as you do it in between pulses.
Do it right, no one ever knows you were there.
Cut on three.
One, two, three.
All you, Sammy.
Okay, quick like a bunny, Mike.
Okay, he's en route.
How's our exit looking? I'll be ready out here.
Okay, Mike, you're clear.
You're clear.
Go.
Okay, you're clear.
Go to the truck.
Go to the truck.
Uhoh.
I got a guard moving toward Mike.
Oh, Jesus.
You think he heard the spreader? No.
The knucklehead just wants to sneak a smoke.
Come on, you dumb son of a bitch, turn around.
- Sam, he's not turning around.
- Damn it.
- How we doing, fellas? - We're good.
Sam, if that guard raises the alarm-- Yeah, I know that.
Jesus Christ, turn around, man.
Okay, he's in.
Go! Are you okay? Yeah.
Yeah, I'm fine.
Just got word from Westen.
He's securing this warehouse and the surrounding area tomorrow.
Looks like Burke's in a hurry to make this sale happen.
I want snipers in these windows here and on those rooftops there.
Westen's gonna be wired for sound, we're gonna know when the deal is done.
Special Forces are gonna work in two capture teams to sweep up Serano and Burke as they try to drive away.
Are there any questions? Um, I have a question.
What are we supposed to be doing? Well, first, you're gonna be fully briefing my men on Burke, and then you're gonna catch a boat back to Miami.
Yeah, um That ain't happening, pal.
I'm sorry.
What "ain't happening"? We're not leaving.
We're gonna stay here to see this through.
Uh, guys, could you excuse us just for a minute? I think maybe you need a refresher on who gives the orders around here.
I killed a man today, so I am not going anywhere until I know that he didn't die for nothing.
Okay, now, before you shed too many tears for that merc you iced, you should know something.
The company that he worked for makes most of its money wiping out villages-- You know what, just stop! All right? Do not try and make me feel better about this.
There's something you should know about me.
When I take a job, I finish it, so we're staying.
You want me gone? You arrest me and cart me out of here.
All right, you and Porter want to stay, watch us take down these bastards tomorrow? Knock yourselves out.
You have earned that much.
Let's just be very clear about something.
The key word here is "watch.
" Modern tracking equipment can help you follow someone without being seen, but once you've found his base of operations, you still have to do surveillance the old-fashioned way, which sometimes means waiting.
We've been sitting here since noon.
Does this guy ever go home? Bookies keep odd hours.
He leaves when he leaves.
We'll just have to wait here until then.
You all right? Yeah, I'm okay.
Just those things I said earlier.
About Nate? You just said what you needed to say.
Those things weren't true.
Except they were.
Maybe if I'd just done it differently when he was little, Nate-- It's not your fault.
I wish I believed that.
Maybe I'm crazy thinking that I can do it better for Charlie.
Well, there's our favorite bookie.
And he's not carrying your jewelry box, so I guess he stashed it.
Madeline, you know what you're doing for Charlie? This.
Let's go teach this bastard a lesson.
And there it is.
Inside the wall? Yeah, it could be a file cabinet, but I'm thinking safe.
You know, this could get really loud.
You want to wait around the building? I want to help, unless you think it's not a good idea.
No, I think it's a wonderful idea.
We're gonna punch a hole in this wall using this detonating cord.
It's filled with a high explosive, PETN.
Okay, the first step is to figure out how much we need.
The average wall safe is about 2 feet by 3, so we need about 25 feet of det-cord.
Now we need to tape it up around the safe, using the weakest part of the wall.
Where do you think that is? Between the bricks.
Yep.
There.
Thank you, Fiona.
This has been very satisfying.
This will be satisfying.
Whenever you're ready.
You're a natural.
Come on.
Look alive, people.
We got our operative inside the warehouse.
When Burke and Serano arrive, I want everybody ready.
Sam, that road Yeah, it doesn't make sense to me either.
There's a blind corner at the end.
There's only one way in and out.
Yeah, Strong, I gotta talk to you.
It doesn't make sense for Burke to set up at the end of a street with only one-- - if you have any concerns, let the captain know.
He's the one to talk to.
Yeah, well, I'm talking to you right now.
Now listen, Jesse and I hung out with Burke.
He's a smart guy.
He could meet anywhere in Santo Domingo, so ask yourself, why here? Look, all I'm saying is I think you need to grab everybody before they get into that warehouse.
Play it safe.
I am playing it safe.
That's why I have sniper teams on every roof.
Great, then you should use every single one of those sniper teams to take out Serano and Burke before they even get there.
It's not happening.
Langley wants a recording of this deal, so guess what Langley's gonna get.
We have a confirmed visual on Burke.
Repeat, a confirmed visual on Burke.
Okay.
Good talk.
Time for me to work.
All right, everyone, we're on.
When was your last perimeter sweep? - 15 minutes ago, all clear.
- Good.
Burke, I know this isn't great timing, but I'm concerned about the exit routes, this location.
If there's any way to push the timeline-- Too late for that, man.
It's on.
I understand you're concerned, but I picked this place for a reason, Mike.
I don't even know who we're meeting with.
Oh, I'm not gonna lie to you.
He's a bad man.
You hired me for your security.
You're doing a great job.
All you've got to do now is cover me.
Just stay sharp, Michael.
Stay focused.
It's all gonna work out.
I promise.
None of this crap makes any sense.
What the hell is Burke doing? I don't know.
Serano is approaching in a black sedan.
We have a visual on Serano.
Look alive, people.
All the pieces are on the board.
Mr.
Serano.
Boy, you're a busy man.
Hard to get face-to-face time with you.
You know how it is.
When you have half a dozen international agencies calling for your head, you only come up for air on special occasions, like this.
This is a special occasion, Mr.
Burke.
It's not easy to come by something like this.
Believe me, I've tried.
It's obvious you went to a lot of trouble to get it.
Thank you.
Actually, yeah.
A little bit of trouble.
The things we have to do to do our jobs these days, no? Now if you want to do business or use a computer, talk on the phone-- if you had told me that I'd be spending $25 million just to have a private phone conversation without some puto of a spy listening I would have said you were crazy.
Pero here we are.
So how do you want to do it? I have bearer bonds, cash, or gold if you prefer.
I don't want your money.
I just want you.
I want to know what the hell is going on in that warehouse! What are those shots? Alpha team, Bravo team, report in.
Tell me you have a visual.
That's a negative.
I got nothing.
We're staring at a concrete wall.
We gotta get in there.
You heard those shots.
Yes, I did, and I'm not doing anything till I know what's happening.
I don't know what you think you're doing, Mr.
Burke, but you just made a very serious mistake, which you'll pay for, I promise you.
Oh, come on, stop making promises, especially ones you can't keep.
Tie him up.
Sounds like Burke shot Serano's bodyguards.
Mike's still alive.
Yeah, for now.
Don't be stupid, Mr.
Burke.
My people will find me.
And when they do, they will kill you, your family, everyone you know.
You want to make a deal.
Let's-- There's no deal to be made.
You see, the thing is you have information, information that is valuable to the people I work for.
It's that simple.
Work for? Who the hell does Burke work for? Get Langley on the phone.
You said Burke ran his own show.
All our intelligence said he did.
Wait a minute.
You guys hear that? Sir, we got incoming! Aw, crap.
We got bigger problems than calling the CIA.
Tell me that chopper is yours, Strong.
Jesus.
No.
Get the snipers under cover, now! Burke, this is Raven four.
What the hell is going on down there? Raven four, this is Burke.
What do you mean? We're ready for exfil.
The hell you are.
You got a hot L.
Z.
You got hostiles everywhere.
Raven four, confirm hostiles.
Snipers, all over the place.
How many are there? How many what? How many snipers are there? Man, I have no idea what you're talking about.
I'm gonna give you one last chance.
Wait, wait, wait! How could I have snipers here? You just gave me the location I did not come here with snipers! I came here with money to pay you! He's got a point, Mike.
The hell he does.
You're the one who secured this location.
How do you miss a team of snipers? Drop the gun.
Burke, I'm on your side.
Drop the gun! This is crazy.
Obviously, he's lying.
What is he gonna say? You think he'd just admit he brought a team of snipers with him? He's lying! Your man is lying! Bravo team, I want you on the move.
I need eyes on Westen.
Strong, we gotta get him out of there.
Waiting around could get Mike killed.
Breaching could get him killed too.
Listen to me.
This makes no sense.
It makes lots of sense, Michael, unfortunately.
Wish to God it didn't, but it does.
The snipers, they're not mine! I don't know what story you're telling yourself, but I'll prove these guys are not mine.
- What the hell is Mike doing? - I don't know.
Burke, we're friends.
You're my friend, and you're pointing a gun at me.
Oh, Jesus, I know what he's doing.
Strong, shoot at him! What? Give me that.
Give me your damn rifle.
You think I would turn on you, Burke? You think I'd turn on you now? Does that make any sense? Those snipers you're so convinced I brought just tried to blow my head off! Now you can shoot me if you want, but I'm getting us out of here now.
Call them off.
Move! Please! No, don't! They're going to shoot-- I can't! They're not my-- give the order now.
You walk in front of that window, and you tell them to back off, or I snap your neck right here.
Do it, Serano.
Go on.
Fall back! Everyone fall back! I have a confirmed visual on Serano.
Do I take the shot? Call them off! Call them off! If they take that shot, Mike dies.
Sir, do you copy? I have Serano in my sight.
Do I take the shot? Everyone fall back! Negative.
Negative.
All teams drop your weapons.
Stand down.
Burke, Raven four.
Whatever you did worked.
Hostiles are bugging out.
L.
Z.
Is clear.
Raven four, this is Burke.
We're ready for exfil.
Bring the chopper down.
All right, that's our ride.
Bring him with.
What about that? It served its purpose.
Uhh! Go! God damn it! Get me Langley! - You okay? - What's that? Are you okay? Yeah, it's just been a long day.
I was kind of hoping it would be over.
I hate to say it, Sammy, but I think this thing is far from over.
Now, that's not the face of a happy little bookie.
He does look like he's having a rough morning.
Yeah, I guess it's time for me to make it worse.
I'll be right back.
Wait, Fi.
I want to go do it.
There she is.
So where's my money? I told you I was coming to settle this.
I never said I was going to pay you.
All right, look, lady, I'm done being nice.
Either you give me my money, or I will sell that grandson of yours to a button factory in China.
You hear me? I hear you.
And now you're gonna hear me.
I know why you're sweating, and I know why you're wearing a gun today.
Lose something? You? So here's how this is gonna go.
You're gonna do exactly as I say, because if you don't, you're gonna be explaining to your powerful friends how a woman old enough to be your mother managed to steal your safe.
I thought I'd only find money in there, but I did a lot better than that.
Your entire client list.
There's enough information in there to put you out of business, in jail, and maybe even in a very early grave.
You can go ahead and keep that 'cause I made a copy for myself.
All right, I made some others for my powerful friends.
What the hell do you want? Well, first things first.
The money I took is now Charlie Westen's college fund.
I'll be keeping that.
And you will not get another penny out of me.
And you will never, ever ever come near me or Charlie again.
Are we clear? Yeah.
I'm sorry? Yes.
Yeah.
Good.
You'll forgive me if I don't stay for lunch.
Oh.
One more thing.
Just remember.
I own you.
When you're undercover, it's easy to dehumanize a target and see him as nothing more than a monster you're trying to take down, but sometimes they'll catch you off guard by showing you how much they care about their cause and even how much they care about you.
Hey, Michael.
I want you to know I'm sorry about today.
Those are the moments you wait for as a spy because the closer they are to you, the closer you are to destroying them.
Sorry doesn't cut it.
What? I just found out you have a boss.
I thought it was you and me.
All right.
Burke, you're part of an organization.
Am I part of it, or am I some tool you use and throw away when it's served its purpose? When you found me, you told me to have faith, said either I was in or out, right then, right there.
Well, I chose in, and everything I've done for you, I've done without question.
But now I want answers! I deserve answers! What is this? You're right.
You deserve answers.
Only I can't give them to you.
All I can do is ask the man who can, and then it's up to him.
You're on a path, Michael.
All will be revealed in time.
I promise.
