CSI: NY s09e15 Episode Script

Seth and Apep

Previously on Crime Scene Investigation Christine? Mac.
Christine? Christine? Where is she? What the hell is going on? We found Christine's phone at a jewelry store robbery.
The blood did match the blood we found in the hotel room.
Christine's room.
We still don't have an exemplar from New York, so we don't know that it's her yet.
What else you have? Okay, we found a print on the jeweler's safe.
Hit came back - to a James Boyd.
- Jimmy Boyd? Boyd manages Christine's restaurant.
You son of a bitch.
- Where is she? - She's in New York.
She never came to Vegas.
- What the hell are you talking about? - I owe money to a loan shark back in New York.
What's this have to do with Christine? I needed to use her to pay him off.
Where is she? She's with my brother; my brother has her.
You're gonna call him, and you're gonna tell him it's over.
I can't.
Don't play with me, Jimmy.
Come on.
The guy I owe he got nervous and he grabbed them up.
If I don't bring the diamonds tomorrow night, they're dead.
They're dead.
I'm taking that bastard back to New York with the diamonds.
He's gonna pay off the scumbag he owes.
I'm gonna get Christine back.
I'm not saying don't do this.
I'm just saying you're gonna need my help.
I'm coming with you.
Zane? - That you, Boyd? - Yeah.
I just got in from Vegas.
So where do you want to meet? Bring the diamonds.
Shawn and Christine, you're gonna bring 'em, right? One hour, Boyd.
Come alone.
Christine was so excited about going to Vegas.
They took her before she made it out of New York.
Mac, we're gonna get her back.
I got visual confirmation.
Two of them approaching from the northwest corner.
Yeah, we see them.
Any sign of Christine or Shawn Boyd? - Negative.
- What about you, Adam? Nothing on the traffic cams.
Running as many plates as I can, but traffic's picking up.
Big brother returns.
Where are they? Close by.
Diamonds? It's only fair.
You owed me first.
I've got an image of our two suspects.
Adam, see if you can get us more on Zane - than just his first name.
- On it.
They're all there, just like we talked about.
Six hours, Jimmy.
Six hours in Vegas we kept trying to call, but nobody could get a hold of you.
Not even your brother.
I told you this things went bad.
You think I'm stupid? Hey, hey, hey.
I don't like this, Mac.
We got a lot of people out here.
He-he's testing him.
Give it a second.
Hey, please.
Please put the gun back.
What happened in those six hours, Jimmy? Did you get caught? Trying to set me up? I just want my brother back.
Please, you got to believe me.
I just want my brother back.
He's gonna do it.
Hold your position.
Let's go.
Where? To get your brother and the girl.
You said you were gonna bring 'em here.
We have to take a ride first.
Okay, that's not the plan.
Flack, they're headed your way.
I got 'em.
Where are we going? You will see.
You brought the cops? NYPD.
Stop! Where is she? Where's Christine? Hey! My friend asked you a question.
Your friend won't like the answer.
What'd you do to her? You will never see her again.
Out here in the fields I fight for my meals I get my back into my living Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Where is she being held? She must be important to you.
You only ask about her.
Who are you working with? Who's holding her? Leave it to the Boyd brothers to kidnap a cop's girlfriend.
You took Christine and Shawn as collateral for the $100,000 he and his brother owed you.
Everyone needs insurance.
Any word on Jimmy Boyd? He's still in surgery.
When you questioned him in Vegas, he give you anything on Zane? No, he said he only met him once.
Knew his first name, that's all.
Said the guy was a loan shark that he and his brother, Shawn, were borrowing money from.
What a mess.
Guy's in my custody.
I had to pull strings just to bring him back to New York.
Do we know anything more about this guy? I just got off the phone with Adam.
Facial recognition was inconclusive.
He ran his prints through AFIS, got nothing back.
He's running them through Interpol now.
How's it going in there? Not good.
Did you do something to her? Is she alive? I'm done talking.
You can end this.
Just tell me what you did with her.
Go to hell.
Tell me where she is.
They arrested Zane.
I don't know.
What do you want me to do? Yeah.
I'll take care of it.
You and your brother, you were working for the cops? No.
- Huh? - What happened? Where's Jimmy? He's dead.
Jimmy's dead.
You set us up! - Huh? - I swear, I don't know what you're talking about.
I think you do, I think you do.
Don't shoot him.
Police have your friend.
They're gonna figure out where we are.
If you kill us, then you'll lose the only leverage that you've got.
What kind of leverage could you possibly be? My-my-my boyfriend's a cop.
Anything in your autopsy point to who our John Doe is or where he may have been in the last 24 hours? I found non-fatal acute pulmonary inflammation.
Something he inhaled within the last 24 hours caused irritation to the lining of his lungs.
I sent a sample to Tox.
I also discovered his fillings are made of glass ionomer.
These weren't don't by any dentist in the U.
From scarring on the surrounding gums, I'd say they're about three months old.
That tattoo on his bicep suggests he's from Egypt.
It's from the story of Seth and Apep.
Seth and Apep.
Um, Seth, the god of chaos, protects Ra by beheading Apep, the god of evil.
It's an ancient Egyptian myth.
So chaos destroying evil.
Sounds like gang ideology.
It could tie back to a gang in Egypt.
Or one here with Egyptian ties.
We spared souls From plotting Every move of your demise Lead me to misbehave So save my wicked soul Stop me from the killing that you know I love Hey This lonely town When I see you Oh, hey This lonely town But I feel you Under my skin.
Hey, it looks like our John Doe was keeping some kind of a ledger.
Well, we think he's Egyptian.
Would explain the Arabic.
Yeah, I don't know what these numbers correspond to yet.
Did you find anything in tox? Yeah, lung sample came back positive for alpha-terpineol.
All right, that's found in fragrances, right? Well, unfortunately it's found in everything from perfume to aftershave, making it virtually impossible to narrow down where he inhaled it.
I feel so helpless, knowing that Christine is out there alone.
I know.
- We just got to stay positive for Mac.
- Yeah.
What's this? I found this in his pocket but I couldn't make it out.
Nailah's Cleaners.
You said that tox detected alpha-terpineol? That's found in industrial fabric softeners.
- Bye.
- Thanks for this.
Okay, don't trip.
That's the Christine you always talked about at the academy? Mm, this is nice.
I love you, Christine.
Mac? Mac.
Just got a hit on Interpol.
"Zane Kalim.
" Wanted for murder in Egypt.
Killed a member of their parliament.
About a year ago.
Well, if he's been here less than a year, chances are he's working for someone.
We need to find out who that is.
This was left for you at the front desk.
- What is it? - I don't know.
It just came in.
Mac Taylor.
This is a lot for anyone to handle.
Even Mac.
He puts the burden of the case on his shoulders even when it's a stranger.
Now that it's Christine, it makes me worry for the people he's after because he's not gonna stop till he finds them.
I know how he feels.
Few months ago, my my granddaughter was kidnapped.
I would have done anything to get her back.
Tell me you found her.
Yes, yeah, thanks to the people around me.
You know, Mac's lucky to have you.
All of you.
All right, I'm linking to every phone company in the tristate area.
When the call comes in, I'll determine the service provider, whether it be cell or landline, and then we can get our trace on.
Excuse me.
Nailah Fayed? I'm Detective Messer, this is Dr.
Do you mind if we ask you a few questions? No, not at all.
Do you recognize this man? No, I don't.
This was his ticket.
Seems he was a customer of yours? Are you sure you don't recognize him? He's no customer.
He collects money from me every week.
In this neighborhood, you don't do business for free.
And how long has that been going on? A few months.
He says it's for protection, but it's Faraj we need protection from.
Faraj? I don't know his last name.
Do you know where he lives? Does he have any relatives in town? Have you ever seen him with this man? He's coming in with Faraj once or twice.
I don't know his name.
This is a very tight community, like a family.
I can ask around, but people are scared.
I don't think anyone's going to say anything.
I'm sorry, Detectives.
I wish I could help more.
Thank you.
DNA came back on the tongue.
Belongs to a male.
Oh, thank God.
If it's not Christine's, whose is it? It could be Shawn Boyd's.
I got 'em running it through CODIS now.
Where the hell is Mac? What do you want to do? I'm taking it.
Detective Jo Danville.
Who am I speaking with? There's a fountain in Fong's alley, Chinatown.
Next to it is a bench.
There will be instructions waiting in an envelope.
Where are Christine and Shawn? If you want to see them alive again, be at the bench - in 15 minutes.
- Keep him talking.
We need to know they're alive first.
Hello? Got it.
Chelsea, 21st and Eighth.
I'll call Flack.
Danny, you head to Chinatown.
It's transmitting from right here.
There's no one over here.
Signal hasn't moved since Adam locked in on it.
Looks like a burner.
Yeah, it's Messer.
Danny, we struck out here what about you? No, there's no envelope here.
What the hell's going on, Jo? Why make contact with us just to take us for a ride? We need to find Mac.
Mac, what are you doing? Damn it, D.
, you shouldn't have followed me.
I saw you leave the lab I figured something was going on.
Thought you might need some backup.
You have to leave now.
They contacted you, didn't they? They had Christine call my cell phone.
This is Mac Taylor.
Mac, it's me.
Christine? Thank God.
Are you all right? Mac, listen.
She gave me an address of a warehouse.
Said to come alone.
Told me if I didn't, they'd kill her.
Well, Mac, they just separated you from your team.
Look, I know what I'm doing, D.
You of all people should understand that.
I do understand.
That's why I'm here.
I'm not trying to stop you, but I'm not gonna leave you alone either.
I'll be close by they won't even know I'm there.
Mac? Christine.
"You proved you're willing to work "alone.
"Now we make a trade.
Christine for Zane.
" Okay.
Uh, I understand.
I'll figure it out.
Don't worry.
"Bring him to Teterboro Airport, "hangar 20.
One hour.
" Or they'll kill me, Mac.
No Christine? Christine.
So he's got blood on his chin, but no pooling on the ground.
The lingual artery supplies blood to the tongue, and if it was severed here, let's just say we'd be looking at a much bigger mess.
He was killed somewhere else, then dumped here.
And Mac called it in.
They must've wanted him to find it.
Maybe the kidnappers contacted him.
That's exactly what happened.
That's why they got us running all over town, so Mac would be here alone.
So what's our next move? Mac feels he needs to go with this alone, we need to trust him.
Our job is to follow the science, just like any other case.
Where the hell have you been? Everybody's been looking for you.
Where is he, Flack? Where's Zane? He's in holding.
But not for long.
- What do you mean? - Once Zane's fingerprints got a hit in Interpol, the, uh, Department of Justice was alerted.
- They're taking him into federal custody.
- Yeah.
Two U.
Marshals are on their way over now.
Well, has-has his provisional warrant been signed yet? Yeah, it's a done deal.
Once those guys walk through the door, he's no longer our prisoner.
Well, until they get here, he's still ours.
I tested the blood.
It's a match for Shawn Boyd.
It's awfully intricate to draw as you're dying.
Well, I don't think he did it.
There's no traces of blood on his fingers.
Well, if Shawn didn't draw it, then who did? This eye is a fingerprint.
New York State requires fingerprints for anyone who gets a liquor license.
She knew the body would end up here.
Christine's trying to tell us something.
We got to find out what this symbol means.
Looks like this guy kept records of all his collections, and by the looks of it, he was pulling in several thousand a week.
Can you pull up a map of all the addresses listed? I'm one step ahead of you.
All these places are businesses in Little Egypt.
Do you recognize one of the locations? No.
But I should.
Nailah's cleaner isn't on this map.
Do you recognize this man? He collects money from me every week.
She was lying.
A trade? If I don't do it, they're gonna kill her.
"Now we make a trade.
"Christine for Zane.
"Bring him to Teterboro Airport, "hangar 20.
One hour" Or they'll kill me, Mac.
Then we talk to the marshals.
There's an innocent life at stake; they'll play ball.
Not before running it up to the attorney general's office.
We don't have that kind of time.
Then we ask for more time.
These men aren't patient.
They've already proven they'll kill to make a point.
You said it yourself: there's an innocent life at stake.
I can't take any chances, Don.
Not on this one.
So what? We just spring the dude and walk him out the front door as the federal marshals are walking in? Yes.
I'm here to take him out.
You must be Detective Flack.
I am.
Thank you for coming.
Can't wait to get this guy off my hands.
All right, I'll just look this over real quick.
Let's go.
Hey, sorry, I got hung up there.
Are these the guys that are here for Zane Kalim? Yeah.
This is Detective Russell, out of Vegas.
He helped us apprehend Kalim.
- Appreciate your help.
- Yeah.
Um boy, I just better come clean here.
If you go on back to the cells, you're not gonna find Kalim.
So where is he? Go ahead, tell 'em.
He was taken over to the 88 in Brooklyn.
I got a uni picking him up right now.
It's all right.
Actually, you know, it's my fault.
Uh, when I was booking Kalim, I-I filled out the wrong the wrong form.
Those damn things look so different in Vegas, and I'm a little tired to tell you the truth.
Uh, tell you what.
In the meantime, we will we'll grab a cup of coffee while we wait? Yeah.
Fellas, I'm so sorry.
You know what? I wouldn't worry about it.
I'm, uh I'm pretty sure that our guy's, uh walking him out of the precinct as we speak.
Faraj kept a detailed ledger of every collection he's made over the past two months.
There's no mention of Nailah's or her dry cleaners.
Why leave her off the list? Because.
He's not collecting from her, it's the other way around.
Nailah immigrated to the U.
about ten years ago.
When she was applying for her green card, she legally changed her name to Fayed.
What was it before? - Kalim.
- Just like Zane.
Exactly like Zane.
They're brother and sister.
Being related to someone doesn't make you guilty of their crime.
True, but this doesn't help her case.
That's the same symbol Christine left on Shawn Boyd's body.
It's on a restaurant in Little Egypt directly across the street from Nailah's dry cleaners.
Christine could have seen that from wherever she's being held.
That's what she's trying to tell us.
She's at Nailah's.
Come alone? Show me Christine.
Where's Zane? Satisfied? Now let me see Christine.
First take him out.
Hand him over.
Then I'll tell you where your girlfriend's being held.
Change of plan.
Now we're gonna go get Christine together, or I'm gonna shoot you dead right now.
Aah! Where is she? I'm tired of playing games.
Let's play one of mine.
We'll see how far you're willing to go.
Hey! Tell me when you've had enough.
Wait! Hey, please! Please! Where's Christine? No, no! I'll take you to her! I'll take you to her! How many men are holding her? Just one.
Where? In the back.
What's his name? Ahmed.
This him? Yeah.
Tell him to bring her outside.
Don't try anything.
This one's full of bullets.
Where the hell is he? I don't know.
This is Ahmed.
Leave a message.
All right.
Let's go.
Nailah Fayed, we have a warrant to search the premises.
Or should we call you Nailah Kalim? Don't make me chase you.
Then I'm gonna have to shoot you.
Is there anybody else in the building? No.
Which way? Over there.
- Where? - Over here.
- Where? - Back there.
I got blood.
She was here.
So where is she now? Hey, Ahmed.
Get the girl.
Bring her up front.
Ahmed Christine, Christine.
Thank God, Mac.
It's okay, it's okay.
It's okay, it's okay.
You're safe now.
You're safe.
I knew you'd come for me.
I love you, Mac.
I love you, too.
It's okay.
I love you.
I love you, too.
What'd the marshals say? They were pissed.
But they'll get over it.
Not much you can do.
Clerical errors tend to happen from time to time.
Clerical errors, huh? Yup.
Hey, Jo.
Oh, Mac.
Thank God we got Christine back.
How is she? Thankful it's over.
We took her to Trinity General.
So this is Zane's sister? And the woman behind the blossoming crime family.
The laundry was her front.
I'm on my way to interrogate her and find out what else she was hiding.
I'm sorry I kept you in the dark.
If there was any other way I know.
Oh, one more thing.
The guy you arrested Omar.
He told this wild story about playing a game of Russian roulette.
You wouldn't happen to know anything about that, would you? Hey Let's see how far you're willing to go.
Not much of a game when the gun's empty.
Just when you think you got a moment to yourself, somebody knocks on your door.
Well, I guess that's the job we signed up for.
There's got to be some perk to being the boss, right? Yeah, the seminar in Hawaii comes to mind.
Yeah, that would do it, that would do it.
How's Christine doing? She's coming along.
I was just about to head back to the hospital.
I guess it's your turn to take care of her, huh? Yeah, it is.
So, when are you taking off? Uh, first thing in the morning.
And Boyd? He made it out of surgery, so, as soon as he's safe to travel, they'll transfer him back to Vegas and have him stand trial for the murder of Sadat.
, I can't thank you enough for coming back here with me.
Hey No, no.
You stuck your neck way out on the line.
Much more than I could have asked for.
I want you to know how grateful I am.
Thank you.
Next time we come to Vegas, dinner's on me.
Damn right.
I'm gonna bring my whole family, too.
