Chicago P.D. (2014) s09e16 Episode Script


1 Thank you.
You have any idea how easy it is to burn your fingers on baked goods? - No.
- It's very easy.
- So, it's going well? - It is not.
I have baked goods coming out of my ass.
My jeans are tight.
And Escano has said two words to me.
What can I get you? Just a iced coffee.
She's sweet.
Look, I know I couldn't go to the dude's bakery like, "Hey, buddy, let me sell your drugs.
" But if I have to upsell one more donut, I am going to blow my brains out.
That's why we're here.
What do you mean? It's been enough time.
Escano shouldn't be suspicious of you.
It's time to build the case.
What the hell does she think I'm gonna do with this? Okay, yeah.
How do we do that? How do we build the case? You get closer.
Look, on the surface, Escano runs a string of bakeries.
We both know he's also running Los Temidos.
I mean, this man's running a cartel-plugged DTO with 70 factions.
He's dealing mass amounts of dope and is responsible for at least ten homicides that we know of.
And yet, we've got zero hooking him to any of it.
Escano is smart.
He keeps everyone at a distance, keeps himself protected.
I mean, all we've got on him we could have found from a Google search.
Wife died ten years ago, been single since.
No children.
This man doesn't have friends, no girlfriends.
No one shows up at his home.
Cheap sex is not going to do it, not with this guy.
We need something more.
So that's what you're gonna find.
You find some way to get close to him.
And you treat it like any other relationship, any other person.
You get to know him, let him know you.
It'll take time.
And that's fine.
We've got it.
You find whatever it is that can bond you to Escano, something to tie you up together, something real.
So then when Escano needs someone for Los Temidos you're the person he wants.
You're the one he's close to.
- No Adrian or Cherry yet.
- Yeah, no Escano, either.
Come on, stupid thing.
I hate to say it, but Anna's not making any progress.
Escano practically walked through her yesterday.
She'll figure it out.
On Tuesday he called her Rebecca.
You like her now? No.
Yeah, you do, you like her now.
We should get Anna a name tag.
Because if Escano calls her Rebecca one more time What! Police! Move, move, move! Get back stay down! 5021 Henry, 10-1, 10-1, shots fired - at the police 2252 - 5021, George, armed offender on foot, gray hoodie, blue jeans.
I need an ambo and cars.
Advise responding.
Plain clothes officers on the scene.
Okay, I got you, I got you.
I'm police.
My girl.
Go check my girl! Try not to move.
Try not to move, all right? My girl, she's pregnant.
She's in the car, please.
Okay, I'll be right back.
Try not to move.
Are you hurt? Hey, look at me, look at me.
Are you hurt? Please, I just need to know if he's shot.
- Are you hurt? - Please, is he shot? Hey, hey, how can I help? You okay? Yeah, um, what do you want me to do? I'm detective Hailey Upton, come here.
Stay with her, check her for injuries what's your name? I'm Anna Avalos.
I work in the bakery.
Okay, stay with her, keep her calm.
All right, you're okay.
- Is she okay? - She's okay.
Is the baby okay? Everyone's okay.
All right, try not to move.
I can't feel it.
I can't feel any of it.
Help's on the way, okay? It's gonna be okay.
You good? What the hell happened? We had to engage.
We had no choice.
Jumped off right in front of us.
The offender's in the wind.
He was about 6 foot, 180, masked, gloved up.
I'm guessing he had a car nearby.
Okay, you running PODS? Yeah, we got PODS and cams going already.
I shot him in his right side, so he's gonna need medical attention.
The offender had an intended target? Yes, it was premeditated.
The offender was lying in wait.
Victim's name is Joshua DeSoto.
He's on his way to Med right now with his girlfriend.
She seems unharmed, but the bullet blew out Joshua's spine.
Did we just burn our entire case on Escano? No, I don't think so.
Anna was the only one here.
- She came outside to help? - She did good though.
Kept her cover.
No one else was inside.
Escano wasn't here.
I think we're good.
Okay, let's make sure of that.
So, we burnt? Not sure.
Halstead's watching the bakery.
All right, what do we got on our victim? ID as Joshua DeSoto, ex-banger, born and raised in Pilsen.
Got out of Menard a year ago.
He was hooked in with the Latin Players, got a five-year bid for possession.
But it looks like he dropped his flag in prison.
Good behavior, early parole.
Been living with his girlfriend Emy since he got out Emy, she's clean as a whistle.
Why were they on that block today? We don't know yet, boss.
Go ahead, Hailey.
All right, hold it down there with the girlfriend.
Question her when you can.
Joshua died at Med.
Okay, our aggravated battery just got upgraded to a homicide.
Joshua didn't make it.
All right, what do you got? Not too much yet.
It is looking like Joshua wasn't affiliated anymore.
Phone, social? Looks like he cut off all contact with the old world as soon as he got into prison.
And Sarge? We got zero links to Escano.
Shooter might not have anything to do with him, or Los Temidos.
Just a stroke of bad faith? So what do we got on the shooter? We got nothing on the shooter, Sarge.
I mean, the guy clearly had a car waiting, but we got no PODs.
We do know Halstead shot him.
Got word out to all the hospitals.
Somebody shows up with a bullet wound in their side, we'll know about it.
All right, keep this quiet, you understand? Anytime you're out on the street, you say you were reassigned to the district.
And change your vest plates, no patches.
I don't want to give Escano any reason to know we got a case on him.
All right, let's dig into Joshua.
Full psychological autopsy.
Find out who he was, who wanted him dead let's go.
Something warm sometimes helps.
Cop gave me hot chocolate when I got here.
He said the same thing.
I know how hard this must be No.
I want you to understand who Josh is.
- I want that too.
- It wasn't a gang shooting.
How do you know that? Because he was out.
Look, I met Josh the day he got out of prison and he he's the best man you'll ever meet.
We know each other.
I am the closest person in the world to him, and I know he was out.
I believe you.
Somebody wanted him dead Nobody would want to hurt him.
Why were you on that block today, Emy? We were just stopping by.
Josh is looking for work, so he was seeing about a job.
A job where? I don't know.
He didn't want to tell me until he got something, but I heard him on the phone.
It was a bakery, I think.
Hey, do you want me to box up the extras from today before I go? Yeah.
Have you heard anything about the shooting? Will you hear? I don't know.
Well, I'd like to know if you do, because I tried to help that girl, so I'd like to know.
We're closed! Open up! Please! What? What are you doing here? - Adrian.
- Oh, my God.
What's wrong? Shh, shh, shh, it's okay.
Quiet, quiet, quiet.
I didn't know where else to go.
- Shh.
- Sorry, I'm so sorry.
It's okay.
Everything's gonna be fine.
- I tried to stop the bleeding.
- Just tell me what happened.
And it just wouldn't stop.
- Oh my God, oh my God - Listen to me.
You're gonna be fine, okay? Just tell me what happened.
Who shot you? Police.
It's Adrian, it's the waiter.
The young one, he's the same height, weight, build, he's got a wound on his right side.
It's exactly where I shot the offender.
Emy said Joshua was looking for a job at Cárabo.
For all we know, this is linked up.
We still don't know how yet.
All right, drop an anchor, Jay, stay low.
Copy you, Sarge.
I'm so sorry.
Just breathe.
Oh, my God.
Don't do that.
Don't do that.
- What? - No.
- What? Why? - Take him to the kitchen.
Do you not see him? He's bleeding bad.
He needs a hospital.
This does not look good.
He's lost a lot of blood.
Jay needs to move.
Okay, what exactly would we be moving on? The only reason we'd move is 'cause we got a wire on Anna.
- I get that, but - Look, we burn Anna, she's as good as gone, and we burn any hope of a case on Escano.
Escano could be behind this whole thing.
For all we know, he ordered the shot.
Look at him.
Right there.
Take him to the kitchen now.
What? We need to take him to a hospital.
- Take him now.
- He's not expecting this.
That look like a man who planned this? Oh, my God, okay.
I'm so sorry.
It's okay, it's okay.
It's okay.
Just sit right there.
Okay? Just sit right here.
Just try to get on Oh, sorry.
Try to get on.
- Oh, my God.
- Please Jesus, why did you come here? Oh, God.
I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do, I think I need help.
Sarge, what are we doing here? She's asking for help.
This kid might die.
Hold, Jay.
Copy that.
Check the wound on him.
- It's okay.
- Check it.
Through and through.
There's a clean exit.
Aah! I can't just let him bleed.
Move your hand.
Move your hand.
We're gonna burn him.
What? We're not gonna burn him.
Are you kidding me? No, no, we're not going to burn him.
It's to stop the bleeding.
I can't let you do that.
We're not gonna do that.
Then sew him up.
He's not going to a hospital.
He's just going to bleed out.
So you want to help him? Help him.
I think I need help.
I don't know what to do, please, please.
Please help.
Please help.
Okay, all right.
This is gonna be okay.
You're gonna be just fine.
It's okay.
You're going to be all right.
Oh, my God.
All right.
Ooh Okay.
Aah! I'm sorry! Aah! Aah! Shh, shh, shh, shh! Be quiet, just be quiet, it's okay.
Shh, shh, shh.
Just take a deep breath.
Aah! I'm sorry.
How is he? Jesus, I didn't know you were still here.
How is he? I don't know how he is.
I'm not a nurse.
I don't sew men up for a living.
I work at your cash register, and I can hardly do that right most of the time, so I don't know.
He needs to see an actual doctor.
You're not afraid.
Excuse me? I need you to take him to his house.
We open at 6:00.
I can't have him here.
I work here at 6:00 a.
Yeah, from the sound of things you're not very good at your job.
We'll manage.
Take him to his house, stay with him, make sure he's okay.
I'm trusting you to take him home.
Only home.
You understand, Anna? Yeah.
Okay, we're almost there.
Almost there.
Ohh Okay, you're good, you're good.
All right, right here, right here.
There you go.
Okay, okay.
- That doesn't work.
- Okay.
Okay, you got any Advil or aspirin? No.
You don't actually have to stay.
Oh, no, I'm gonna stay, I'm gonna stay.
I'm just gonna go run out and grab some things, and I'll be right back, okay? Won't be long.
Okay? Okay.
What the hell was that? Where were you guys? You didn't need us.
I sewed that kid up with a needle.
If I ever needed you, it was then! Well, you didn't use the safe word.
I I asked for help.
But you knew you didn't need it.
Anna you did good.
This got us what we needed.
Listen, this case is not going to be pretty.
I think we all should stop pretending we don't know that.
Anna you can't get closer to him without actually getting closer to him.
We needed this, and we are gonna use it.
Escano wants me to stay with Adrian.
Good, you stay with Adrian.
And find us actionable information we can use to arrest him for that shooting.
What car did he drive, where's the gun? - Motive.
- The motive, exactly.
And did Escano have anything to do with it? Okay? You find us information we can use without burning you.
You understand? Yeah.
Yeah, okay, I can I can do that.
You damn right you can.
And you, you're the one that shot him.
I really didn't think that you could just watch him bleed.
He shot at me.
And he murdered that kid.
He shot him in the back.
But we won't let anything happen to him, or you.
We're gonna move in if we have to move in.
Adrian worked for Cárabo for three years on paper.
He seems normal as it gets, but his schedule does not add up.
He only works three days a week, less than Anna, less than Cherry.
But he has no other job.
We tracked him on archived PODS.
We pulled all of his cell tower pings.
Okay, so this is Adrian on three of his days off.
Each time he drives solo to a parking lot on the west side, drops off his car and swaps it out for a different one.
So we're taking this kid's a runner.
There you go.
There you go.
Bring your arm down.
There you go.
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
You don't got a TV? Naw.
You been to all these places? None of them.
Just want to.
That is so sad.
I know.
No, it's like it's like really pathetic.
I know.
So how do you find all these postcards if you haven't even been in these places? Other people have.
I buy them at flea markets.
Most of them got writing on them.
That makes it so much worse.
You ever left Chicago? Um nope.
Yeah, you really need a TV.
Thanks for doing all this.
You don't got to thank me.
For all I know, those stitches could rot.
Hey, uh why'd you show up at Cárabo shot anyway? I don't know.
Of course you know.
I just I knew Escano would help me.
I messed up.
I let my heart, just But I knew he'd still help me.
What do you mean.
He doesn't care about a soul.
That's not true.
You just don't know him.
I've known him since I was 14.
He's the only person that I've ever been close to.
I knew he would help.
I was at the bakery yesterday morning.
I know you shot that guy.
How come? Did Escano tell you to do that? What kind of a question is that? I Does it feel better? A little.
All right.
Just relax, I'll I'll clean this up a little bit.
Anna come with me.
Look, I wasn't saying that I-I just But what did that question mean? I was just saying that I was at the bakery yesterday morning and I know that he's the one No, you asked him if he shot him for me.
Who exactly do you think I am? Because I was under the impression that you don't even know me.
I mean, who really does know you? Like, I got eyes and ears, okay? I see how he talks to you, looks at you.
You didn't want me to call an ambulance.
I can piece it together, okay? But I shouldn't have asked, and I won't again.
Hold on a second.
Is that all you want to say to me? What else would I say right now? You don't want to scold me for being cruel? For not caring about a soul? No.
I really don't have anything else to say.
You sure about that? I mean, you don't know me either.
I do know you.
You're Anna Avalos.
You were born and raised in Pilsen.
Your father, your brother, your uncle, they were all Los Temidos.
And your mother abandoned you, so you were hooked, you were hard and you were good.
You laid back when you got out of prison.
You have one son named Rafa.
And other than him, you are all alone in this world.
There's not a person that works for me that I don't know.
So you can leave now.
You okay? Jay and Hailey tell you? Mm.
Escano knows me.
Knows my kid.
Look, that's just to scare you.
He doesn't know you're working for us.
But still, from now on when we meet it's gonna be at a pre-arranged location.
I don't want you coming here anymore.
So what did you get from Adrian? Um just that you were right.
Escano had nothing to do with the shooting.
He said he messed up, something about his heart.
His heart tripped him up, I don't know.
He, um He's just a kid.
He seems like a nice kid.
Who committed a murder.
Go home.
Just keep your normal shifts at the bakery.
You got a board like this? On me? Yes.
Sarge, I think we got his heart.
- Okay.
- That's Emy, Joshua's girlfriend.
They met each other right after he got Menard.
Before then, Emy was just a kid shuffling from home to home.
So Emy's mom went to rehab when she was 18.
Her father moved to Rhode Island and then Emy went to go take care of her sick grandma, who happened to live three houses down from Adrian.
They knew each other.
So how did we miss that? Because there's no evidence of it anywhere except for the addresses.
Adrian has no phone records of calls with Emy.
He's got no text messages.
Emy's got nothing on her social media that shows them together.
Tried to get access to her other accounts.
It's possible that they talked on WhatsApp, something more private.
- Why would they hide? - No idea.
Well, so stay with me here.
Adrian falls in love with Emy.
Emy leaves him for Joshua.
Then Escano offers Joshua a job.
If that's the case, Adrian is losing everything he ever had.
Yeah, and we won't be able to prove it because Escano does not leave an electronic trail.
Well, I can run GPS records, PODS, see if Adrian and Emy traveled together.
I think Adrian's got a burner phone, did a cell tower dump.
Two numbers blew up Adrian's house.
Now, Escano, he gives his people burners, it'd be smart.
Yeah, and if he does, then Adrian probably uses that thing like a normal kid, he calls his girl on it.
All right, so run it.
And get Emy in here, have her confirm it.
Make her give us Adrian.
Ready? Chicago PD! It's over, Adrian.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Take it easy.
Take it easy.
Come on, you don't want to do this.
Everybody hold tight.
I got Adrian.
Just hold tight.
Please stop.
I'm going to need you to put that gun down.
I can't.
Yes you can, come on.
You can do it.
I was supposed to do it hours ago.
That's good.
When he left, I was supposed to run away and I just I've just been sitting here.
That means you don't want to do this.
- No.
- You don't want to die, easy.
- Easy.
- I need to.
Take it easy.
I told him I would.
Adrian, look at me.
Look at me.
Look, you have a life.
It's yours.
It's your life.
This is not how it's gonna end.
It doesn't end today.
That's the truth.
Come on.
I messed up.
- That's okay.
- I was just so It's okay.
It just, it broke me Adrian, Adrian, we'll fix it.
I promised him I would do this.
I promised him.
I have to.
Okay, okay.
I'm stopping right here.
Adrian look at me.
I'm putting my gun away.
Look, I know he told you to do this.
I know who he is, and kid? You gotta believe me, this is not the man you give your life to.
He's not, and you know that.
I mean, anyone who would ask you to do this They're wrong.
You know it.
That's why we're still here.
Right? He's all I have.
No, he's not even close to all you have, Adrian.
Look at me, Adrian.
I'm gonna take a step closer now.
Okay? I'm just gonna keep coming closer.
Okay? Take your finger off the trigger and hand me the gun.
That's it.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Just hand it to me.
Come on.
That's it.
Just hand it to me, come on.
Right now.
Right now.
- I promised him.
- No, no, no, no No Okay.
I'm sorry.
It's gonna be confirmed.
That's the same gun that shot Joshua.
Escano told him to kill himself.
When Anna was here? Told him he had to.
He knew we were gonna make the case.
He didn't want Adrian in the box.
We could try bringing this to an ASA, argue coercion.
It's not enough.
We're going after Escano for everything.
Sergeant Voight.
I want him for everything.
You can't be coming here.
I did heat runs.
I don't care.
It's not enough.
We don't meet like this anymore.
Okay, okay, I won't, I won't again.
What happened to Adrian? He killed himself.
Escano told him to.
Okay, so what now? We use it.
Escano's going to need a new runner.
Okay, so we go from dead kid to you will take his spot? Okay.
What would you rather we do, Anna? Look, I will do all this, I will get closer and, you know that, but I just You gotta give me something.
I just I don't know jack about you.
Or Escano, and you both know everything about me.
I mean, he's got a whole sheet on me and my kid.
You have a whole damn board on me.
You both are just using me like a lamb to slaughter.
It's fine, I'm willing and I'll trust you, I just What do you want? I got no idea.
I don't even know why it means so much.
I just I don't have anything to give.
Of course you do.
I mean, what the hell is up with this big empty house and all these pictures, your family? They're gone.
You told me you have a son.
He's dead.
They're all gone, Anna.
This job is what I have.
It's all I got left.
So I don't even get a good morning? I-I heard what happened to Adrian and and I'm sorry.
Say what you want to say, or pretend but that kid loved you.
For whatever the hell the reason, and he was close to you.
So you must have been close to him and I just I'm sorry.
You know what I do? I mean, I'm not an idiot.
No, you're not.
You know what I do.
And yet you're still here.
And you're sorry.
