Capitani (2019) s02e07 Episode Script

No Time to Lose

[breathes deeply]
[sombre music playing]
You've kept me waiting.
[sighs] Have you got something for me?
The Carabinieri know about
one or two deliveries
arriving in Luxembourg every month.
Hidden under ordinary products.
If possible, something that
drives the dogs crazy,
like flowers or fresh meat.
A local trafficker
then takes care of the product.
And that involves Carla Pereira.
Then she divides this out
to different subcontractors,
who have their own people.
And people like Carla Pereira,
with whom we'd rather
you didn't have any contact anymore.
So now you're telling me
you know who she is.
I might have done some homework.
And so why not?
Your cover can't be blown.
Your friendship's too good.
My case was closed
due to lack of evidence against me.
[scoffs] Carla would be very useful, yeah?
As your witness. But if you mention her
in your report, she'd be arrested.
And then there will be a risk
of her testifying against me.
The attorney general
would have to reopen the case,
I'd go back to prison.
And that you don't want.
It's for you to be in control
of when I'm put away again.
- She could incriminate you.
- With what?
My weapon was taken.
You have it, with my fingerprints.
[Capitani sighs]
How do you suggest
I find out the next delivery date
and route
without Carla and I working together?
What's your plan,
once you have this information?
Then I'll tell you
which route the truck will be taking.
[Pascale sighs]
[sighs] You want that information?
Isn't that catch a little too grand?
Grand is good.
So that I'm quicker out of this.
[opening theme music playing]
[door buzzes, opens]
[footsteps approaching]
[door closes]
[sombre music playing]
How are you doing then?
All good.
And you?
"All good"?
Life's been better.
How much longer is there?
Sixteen months.
I'll take the exam to become a carpenter.
I'll continue my apprenticeship.
Then I'll open a carpentry business.
[Elsa chuckles]
Sounds like you've got
your future planned.
You don't?
What's brought you here?
Do you recognize her?
That's the one
from the Auberge in Manscheid.
I know who she is.
Twenty years ago, there was a drug
trafficking ring she was implicated in.
[scoffs] You're telling me a major
drug trafficker lived in our village,
but she had nothing to do
with your Unicorn shit?
[scoffs] You believe she was
the brain behind that operation?
- That I was working for her?
- Hmm?
I was the only boss there.
Of everything.
I got the network up and moving.
I'm no minion who works for others.
Is that why you've come?
I was just looking for a little clarity.
For you and your behaviour.
If it were true, would you love me?
It would at least be something.
But we used to love each other, yeah?
- Hmm.
- And look at the mess we're in.
And you know this
has happened because of you.
[hesitates] What?
How many times did I beg you
to give up the Engel case?
But you wouldn't listen to me,
further, further, further.
When you could have
chosen to be with us, on my side.
But you don't even know what that means.
At least I know
what it takes to love someone.
And that doesn't involve
lying to each other.
Or all the false promises that were made.
[Steve breathes deeply]
You abandoned me!
You have our child on your conscience!
[sombre music playing]
[mysterious music playing]
[mobile ringing and vibrating]
- [mobile beeps]
- Yeah.
[Pascale] I talked to the prosecutor.
We're officially launching
Operation Dark Flower.
[Capitani chuckles] Subtle.
Oh, shut up, Capitani.
We need a big fish in our net
at the end of this operation.
And when I say "big", I mean Moby Dick.
Valentina and Gibbes
don't get their own hands dirty.
Then one of the juniors.
[sighs] Then Dominik?
And Arthur Koenig.
It's about next in line to the throne.
Make sure that he's there.
- [sighs]
- Is that a problem for you?
Arthur is not the worst there.
But if Arthur falls,
there goes the entire dynasty,
the prosecutor has his great catch,
and you'll be swimming free.
I'll do what I can.
[mobile beeps]
[mobile clatters]
[mobile beeps]
[suspenseful music playing]
[mouse clicks]
[camera shutter clicking]
[Toni] There were
Three little drug dealers ♪
With a kilo of cocaine ♪
Innocently chatting on the street ♪
Along came the police and ♪
Antonio, putain!
[Toni humming]
Oh, fuck!
- Useless shit!
- It's because he was part of the team.
- It's always like that.
- You're a right know-it-all.
Wow! Something I said?
Forget it. Keep singing.
- Yeah?
- You're a friend of Grace, right?
I'm Lucky, her brother.
Hey. Stop right there.
Where is Grace, Bianca?
I need to know.
I don't know you,
she never talked about you.
Get off me, go away! Get off me!
[Bianca gasps]
I know guys like you, you just want to
control us and keep us in our place.
- You don't understand.
- Did you kill her?
No. No, Grace is alive.
- Don't lie to me.
- I'm not lying.
Ask Luc.
[indistinct chatter]
[groans softly]
[door closes]
And? What does it say?
It says "asshole banker." [sobbing]
[Bianca sniffles]
Hey, Bianca.
[tense music playing]
[Bianca sobbing]
[Valentina] Oh, la-la-la-la.
Looking sharp.
Looking like someone who's working for me.
I've always worked for you.
[Valentina] We shouldn't keep
the Koenig's waiting.
- [car horn blaring]
- [gasps]
- [sighs]
- [mobile ringing]
[intense music playing]
[faucet running]
[Arthur] We need to hit them right now.
[Valentina] That's a shit idea.
[blowing bubbles]
[sighs] We saved a seat for you.
[muffled music playing over speakers]
I was explaining to Arthur
that we can't mount a head-on attack.
[Arthur] Two of our girls are dead.
And when the shit hits the fan,
you do nothing.
- Let's whip out our dicks and measure up?
- [woman laughing]
[Dominik] Hit where
the dealers are hiding.
- [Capitani] Cops are about to find out.
- Find out before them.
Absolutely not.
It's better they clean up the mess.
Result doesn't change,
we don't get our hands dirty.
Sorry, but Arthur is right here.
A message should be sent.
Saying what?
[sniffs] A truck arrives
twice a month from Italy
for the Nigerians to be resupplied.
That's the one we stop.
That's it.
We agreed to a no head-on attack.
Exactly. Instead we'll inform
the French police about them.
Our condition for the police is
they let us take 50% of what's there.
Why, is that something they do?
I've worked with them before.
For a sizable tip,
they'll definitely be on board.
This way,
the Nigerians' reserve is drained.
Meanwhile, we can sell
half of their drugs.
- That's maximum profit.
- One moment. Just wait there.
You realize it'll be
Carla's drugs we're selling?
Correct. Need Carla
for the truck's identification.
Our expenses are going up.
It's not about making profit. [sniffs]
It's about getting rid of the Nigerians.
Luc is right.
Let's give Carla
the chance to come on board.
I'll have already
made her an offer of 110% of the price.
Hundred and five percent.
Whatever it is,
the payment upfront is only 20%.
Then she'll hear her truck
was pulled by the French police.
At that point,
she'll just be happy about the 20%.
Sweet. But 50% of the truck will be ours.
[Capitani chuckles]
This is really good, Luc.
[Capitani] But one of us should go.
To check everything is going to plan
with the French and the 50%.
In charge of that.
Yeah, I'm on it.
You're definitely not. Last time you
crossed the border, the shit kicked off.
I'll take care of it.
Arthur must.
- That'll be enough.
- Hmm.
[Capitani sniffing]
Luc, back off a little.
From the coke. We need to be clear
from the bottom to the top.
- [bag zips shut]
- [sniffs] Everything is under control.
No stress.
[mysterious music playing]
[birds chirping]
Be quick.
I'm here with an offer for you.
We know that a truck comes up
every two weeks from Italy.
Koenig and Valentina have money to
invest with you, they want a partnership.
And this
is just a little advance.
[lighter clatters]
I guarantee the transport.
Do you want to destroy us?
Not an issue. We're preparing
to raid the truck in France.
And this
is your compensation
for telling us
which path the truck's taking.
How is this going to end?
The Special Intervention Unit?
And who'll be left to sell?
What happens to the Africans?
They won't have anything to sell and soon
be looking somewhere else for money.
And once they've left,
the Special Intervention Unit will leave.
For a couple of weeks,
we just have to lie low.
What if I say no to you?
Don't be surprised
if Athus has cops everywhere.
You've become so hard.
Three years in prison will do that.
Didn't you get my letters at the inn?
I still believe what I said.
I didn't look at them.
That people can't change.
Not really.
- Once a criminal, always a criminal.
- Once a cop, always a cop.
Am I being watched by the police?
But you're not the target.
Can my safety be guaranteed?
[bag unzips]
It's a flower truck this week.
Fiori de Bacco.
I'll let you know the exact journey.
[sombre music playing]
the itinerary of the truck!
The Prince will be joining!!
[mobile beeps]
Customs will intercept them at the border.
It will be over soon.
[mobile clatters]
- [keys jingle]
- [engine starts]
[thunder rumbling]
[Toni] Hey.
What's going on between you two?
- What are you talking about?
- Your bond with Elsa.
We're old colleagues.
Not that it's your business.
Exactly. Old colleagues from the past.
Those times are over.
Just as she's getting better, you show up
and get her involved in your affairs.
This might cost her her career.
- Did she say that?
- I'm saying that.
Honestly, man.
She's unbelievably miserable.
That woman has no life.
Then you come in and are
using her for your own purposes.
Just step back.
Seriously, I mean it.
[upbeat music playing over speakers]
Luc. Luc!
Grace's brother said that
he chatted to you.
- He says Grace is alive. Is that right?
- It is, yeah.
Why didn't you tell me then?
She's still in danger.
So you can't tell anybody.
Another girl's dead
and you do nothing about it?
Police are investigating.
What do you mean? The police
aren't doing anything that's helpful.
You've completely abandoned
the hunt for the killer.
I trusted you.
[man clears throat] Excuse me.
- Hi.
- [chuckles] Sorry.
[man continues indistinctly]
[mobile beeps]
FROM CARLA: The itinerary of the truck:
Dominik Draga has an alibi for the night
of the murder of Andreea Popescu.
He was spending time
with one of his "co-workers", it seems.
[indistinct chatter]
Listen up, we've got new intel.
We now know that the Nigerians' supply
is coming from August Albuquerque,
among others.
A relative unknown who has been
making trouble in Athus recently.
Working alongside someone
who was heavily involved
in the trafficking scene
in the Minett region.
Sofia Santos, aka Carla Pereira.
- She was at the car park.
- [Elsa] Shh.
[Diederich] So the network
isn't solely Nigerian.
People from here are also implicated.
We have to look in the Minett region
and beyond the Belgian border.
Okay? Good.
[indistinct chatter]
- [Diederich] Yeah?
- [Elsa] Can I talk to you?
How did we hear about Carla Pereira?
Through an informer?
You know her?
We come from the same village.
I know her as Sofia.
Two days ago, I saw her with Capitani.
[punches table]
And two days earlier,
he was en route with Valentina?
- Has he completely changed sides?
- Marc.
Luc could be one of our informers.
We've existing channels
for the information we gather.
I can't believe he'd change sides
We don't recruit infiltrators
who are ex-cops.
They're police officers from other
countries who then get a new identify.
[Diederich sighs]
Okay, listen, Elsa.
As a young officer,
I knew Capitani's papa,
a gendarme.
You are aware that
he committed suicide, shot himself.
- What?
- Yeah.
Luc was quite young when he did it.
I mean, you can imagine
what he's capable of doing after that.
All that sadness and rage inside.
- Then the murder of Da Costa.
- There's no proof of that.
The result is he isn't stable.
And regardless of proof or not,
facts are that he killed someone.
[sombre music playing]
[door opens]
[door closes]
The itinerary of the truck:
What are you doing here?
[keys jingle]
Wouldn't you be better off
with your new friends?
Can we speak?
[door creaks, closes]
You could probably do with new friends.
Your old friend, Carla from Athus,
isn't going to get you far.
You're spying on me now?
Oh, wow.
It's a shock for you. [scoffs]
Still remembering the naive Ley
from Manscheid, Capitani?
I'm an investigator
with the Special Intervention Unit
and what are you?
The murderer of Vincent Da Costa?
The ex-lover of Carla Pereira, huh?
Is that it?
[Capitani sighs]
I see you did your homework on me.
You hid that from me, didn't you?
Carla is not included
in the Manscheid investigation.
She had absolutely no involvement with it.
You're playing a complicated game here.
I'm not playing anything, Elsa.
I'm trying to save my own skin.
So selfish.
You're all the same.
- Who are you talking about now?
- You and Steve.
Steve, really?
Steve is a traitor, a dealer,
he's a fucking liar.
Just leaves murderer then.
You can fuck off!
You have no idea.
That's about all you've got, have you?
Then you're better off on your own.
[sombre music playing]
[door slams]
[suspenseful music playing]
[Bianca] Lucky!
No, no, wait, wait! Lucky.
I just wanted to apologize.
I'm sorry for the last time.
I really don't know
the whereabouts of Grace.
She left without telling me anything.
Why are you looking for her? Why now?
She's the chosen one.
Not me.
Give me your number. Just in case.
[pouch unzips]
[pouch zips shut]
Do you need something?
[chuckles softly]
[sombre music playing]
[Arthur] Heated seats
are the best, aren't they?
[man chuckles] They are, yeah.
[suspenseful music playing]
The French policemen, where are they?
They're not here.
[mobile beeps]
[line ringing]
[gasps] Fuck.
[tense music playing]
[breath shudders]
[gun clatters]
Don't do this.
I I can pay you. I have money.
- [silenced gunshots]
- [gasps]
[breath trembling]
Fuck you.
[silenced gunshots]
[indistinct chatter]
[mysterious music playing]
[line ringing]
[mobile ringing and vibrating]
[Elsa moaning]
[Toni panting]
[melancholy music playing]
[rap song playing]
