Deep State (2018) s01e05 Episode Script

Merger

1 HARRY: What did White tell you? That I was the breach? - And you believe that? - You're alive, aren't you? HARRY: What are they covering up, Said? It was made very clear to me, if I don't complete this job TOUMI: White takes out your family.
- Why all of them? - It's what Langley wants.
You're gonna need a strong stomach for this one.
Nothing left behind.
- [DOGS BARKING] - [SPEAKS FRENCH] - Shh.
- Non! ANNA: You followed me.
- Get the girls.
- CHLOE: Maman! JONES: After some soul-searching, George here has magnanimously decided to give you a second chance.
MAX: Kahani walked Ardavan into an ambush.
Clearly he's no lawyer.
Maybe he's agency? COLLINS: We need you to take the fall on this one.
- JONES: You are unbelievable.
- Watch your tone.
The drone strike in Lebanon.
It was us.
Human error.
Seems the tip about the Al-Amin Mosque paid off.
- Said's been praying there.
- WHITE: I need you to be sure.
Time is running out for those little girls of yours, Max.
He's in a café across the street.
I'm looking at him right now.
MAN: Allahu Akbar.
Sami'a Allahu liman hamidah.
Allahu Akbar.
Allahu Akbar.
[SPEAKS ARABIC] [BOTH LAUGH] Salaam.
[SPEAKS ARABIC] MAN: Ashkan Davoud.
Immigration.
Your visa's expired, Mr.
Davoud.
Hands behind your back, please.
You should never outstay your welcome.
You may find yourself In another part of the world Living in a beautiful house With a beautiful wife And you may ask yourself "How do I work this?" This is not my beautiful house This is not my beautiful wife And you may ask yourself "Well" "How did I get here?" [HORNS HONKING IN DISTANCE] [TYPING] I boxed us in telling White I had Said in my sights.
He's gonna find out the lie soon enough.
And when he does, we're fucked.
Tell me you have something.
Nothing.
The White House still claiming it was an accident.
This has to be connected to the Tehran operation.
- Why? - Well, Ardavan becomes a target.
I start digging into him, I end up on the kill list.
Maybe this is what they've been trying to hide.
So it was an assassination? Well, if we can find out who the target was, maybe we can find out the why.
This is where you're gonna keep us? You didn't appreciate the last place we prepared for you, so this is what you get.
How long are we going to stay here? [KNOCKING ON DOOR] - Yeah.
- [DOOR OPENS] Khalid, thanks, uh, thanks for coming in.
It's Said.
He's dead.
[CLEARS THROAT] This, uh this whole fucking thing it's it's just a mess.
Max is off the leash.
We are going to have to flush him out.
Finish him.
And we are going to use his wife and children to do it.
It's distasteful, I know, but, uh - there it is, it can't be helped.
- [POURING DRINK] Except we both know that's not true, George, don't we? [POURING DRINK] [SCREWS CAP] I'm looking for somebody who has the stomach for this sort of thing.
It's not every man's forte.
But it's mine? I can't go to France.
If Jones finds out that I'm not at my post, she will start asking questions, and then It's not what you need.
No.
It isn't.
[CHAIR SCRAPES] I'm giving you the opportunity to display your loyalty.
To step back inside the tent.
You do see that, don't you? And after it's done, you're gonna need someone else to take care of Harry Clarke and Leyla Toumi.
You volunteering? Just clearing up your shit, George.
And proving my loyalty.
Yeah, well, thank you.
And once it's done, you'll owe me.
And Jones gets to know that I'm stepping up.
I will make sure that your dedication does not go unnoticed.
JONES: You got a moment? If it'd been my call, your head would have rolled.
Appreciate your support.
Don't get cute.
"For some time, I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted away from its original assignment.
" That was Truman.
He never thought he'd see the day when we became injected into peacetime operations.
And yet, here we are.
At permanent war.
What do you want? We found an intelligence source.
Ashkan Davoud, a scientist with detailed knowledge of what we believe to be Tehran's reactivated program.
Worked at the Alin Power Plant before he fell afoul of the regime.
- Will he sing? - If we can get to him.
We need an extraction team to lift him from Iran.
Set up the mission.
But Burrell will want oversight on this.
That a problem? Not at all, sir.
I'll set it up.
I really don't need a babysitter.
That's an interesting choice of words, Laurence.
I-I'm gonna need to move her.
Why? Because I'm gonna have to move her.
You know there are two young children in that house, yeah? Yeah, I'm aware of that.
And there are certain things I won't do.
You'll do whatever the fuck I tell you to do, Laurence.
Now, why don't you run along and go and fetch her? There's a good chap.
[CHLOE AND LOLA SPEAKING FRENCH] I'm sorry.
Going to have to move you.
Why? I'm afraid I can't tell you that.
You mean you don't know.
Who's he? He's your boss, isn't he? You don't like him.
We need to go.
- Come on.
- No.
Just you.
What? I won't go without them - They'll be safe.
- And I should believe you because? Please.
Don't make this harder than it already is.
On who? You? Or me? [QUIETLY]: I'll find Noah, so the girls won't be alone.
Thank you.
Hamid Abdevali.
Hamid Abdevali.
No links to any terror organizations.
He's not on any watch lists.
In fact, there's nothing on here that would suggest he was a target.
I mean, this is getting us absolutely nowhere.
Watch your step.
Take a seat.
Move the chair a little to your left, please.
Right.
I think we're ready to begin.
Okay, maybe it was the place they wanted to take out, not a person.
So let's go down there.
Take a look.
We'll never get near the site.
So, what, we stay here? - You're right.
We should go.
- [PHONE BEEPING] ANNA: Max.
They have me and the girls.
We're okay.
They're treating us okay.
Please do what they tell you to do.
Please.
[ANNA GASPING] [SIGHS] [DIALING] [LINE RINGS] [PHONE RINGS] MAX: Now, you listen to me.
I made a video after my last job.
The suicide in the woods.
Remember? Right, well, I named you, George.
Anything happens to my family, I swear to God, I'm gonna release that tape.
You understand me, you fucking cancerous piece of shit? We know about the tape, Max.
Your wife found it.
Why do you think we took your girls into custody? Listen, you harm one hair on their heads, I swear to God You'll what, Max? You'll what? Go ahead.
Release the tape.
But then little Lola won't get to blow out the candles on her ninth birthday cake.
One simple job.
Complete the task and then go home, but you couldn't do it.
This is on you, Max, not me.
[MAX SHOUTING] ANNA: They have me and the girls.
Please do what they tell you to do.
[SIGHS] Jesus.
I'm sorry.
Yeah, we'll sort this out.
Okay, whatever it takes.
I'll help you.
Yeah.
Right, look at the video again.
Is there anything you recognize, anything at all? [SIGHS] Hang on that cross, I recognize that cross.
Okay, good.
Leyla.
Go to the blast site.
See what you can find before any leads run cold.
Right, we need to go, now.
Max.
Dad.
Let's go.
Yeah.
You Major Jackson? Yes, sir.
- You found us okay, then.
- Apparently so.
Jones has briefed us.
The set is built and ready.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER] You live around here? Not far.
Ah, it's nice.
And, uh, Anna? That's her name, right? What, you met her soon as you came out here? Straight after Mum? It wasn't like that.
No, it never is, is it? What was it like, then? I reckon they filmed it down there.
It's an old military base.
So, what's the play, then? Max? Can you see them? No.
- What are their names? - Huh? You really want to do this now? Now's as good a time as any.
Okay, uh Chloe's nine, Lola's seven.
What are they like? Chloe's stubborn.
She gets an idea in her head, she won't go back.
Yeah, I wonder where she gets that from.
Lola's away with the fairies.
She's kind, considerate.
Oh, that she clearly gets from her mother.
- Cheap shot.
- Yeah, the best kind.
What did you used to tell people about me? - Oh, Harry, don't.
- Don't what? Talk to you about something that actually matters? We could be dead in a couple of hours.
Do you want to talk about something else? [HARRY SCOFFS] Yeah.
7.
62x51mm NATO rimless bottlenecked rifle cartridge.
Do you want to talk about that? I mean, I suppose it's what we've got in common, isn't it? Killing people.
Why did you leave? I didn't like the person I'd become.
Right, so it was about you.
Did you ever think about me? Of course I thought about you.
I thought about you all the time.
Come on, man, I was a mess.
Oh, but you're fine now, right? I thought you'd be better off without me.
[SCOFFS] No, no.
You do not get to do that.
But you want to walk out on your family, you want to be that dickhead, fine.
Be that dickhead.
Don't you fucking dare hide behind me so you can sleep at night.
You didn't do it for me.
You did it 'cause you're a selfish fucking asshole.
And you still are, for all I know.
Is this why you came with me? To insult me? I came because I saw you watching that video.
You looked old, mate.
Weak.
I felt sorry for you.
Okay, to insult you is a bonus.
Mazin? [CAMERA BEEPING] JONES: Ashkan Davoud, the scientist who's defecting.
Red team will land ten klicks inside the Iranian border and extract him from the village of Bostan.
We are expecting him to be under VAJA surveillance Iranian intelligence But he's assured us that he can give them the slip long enough to get out.
And if he's wrong? We're well equipped to handle any outcome, Chairman Burrell.
You mean it could get messy.
I mean we're prepared.
Good luck, everyone.
SEAL 1: We are entering Bostan village now.
SEAL 2: Do you see them? SEAL 3: Negative.
[MAN SPEAKING FARSI] SEAL 2: Is that him? SEAL 3: Who the fuck is that? All right, what the fuck's going on? SEAL 2: Get back, get back! SEAL 1: Get him the fuck out of there.
SEAL 2: Move! Move! [INDISTINCT SHOUTING OVER SPEAKERS] SEAL 2: Where is he? Where's the target? SEAL 1: He's supposed to be right here.
SEAL 3: I don't see him.
I don't see him.
SEAL 2: Shit.
[INDISTINCT SHOUTING] SEAL 1: Do we pull back? Langley, advise.
That's a negative.
Wait.
[DISTORTED CHATTER AND NOISE OVER SPEAKERS] SEAL 2: Is that him? SEAL 1: Red Hawk One? SEAL 2: We have a jackpot.
We have a match.
SEAL 1: Get him back here.
Let's get out of here.
Move! Move! [AUTOMATIC GUNFIRE] SEAL 1: Incoming! SEAL 2: Fuck! [MAN SCREAMS] SEAL 2: Man down! Man down! SEAL 1: Where's he hit? SEAL 3: Leg! Leg! SEAL 2: Man down! SEAL 1: Covering fire! [INDISTINCT SHOUTING] SEAL 2: Fuck! [AUTOMATIC GUNFIRE OVER SPEAKERS] SEAL 1: Fall back! Move out! Move out! [SCREAMING] What's going on? Red One, give me a status.
[RADIO STATIC] Someone give me a status! SEAL 1: We have him! We have him! All accounted for, and we are pulling out! Congratulations.
Thank you, sir.
MAN: Good job.
HARRY: I thought Kahani went back to the States.
Apparently not.
He's sitting at the wedding party as clear as day.
Kahani gets up at 11:35, leaves, the other man sits there, looks like he's waiting.
Five minutes later, the drone hits.
Yeah, Kahani walked into an ambush just like he did with Ardavan.
You got anything on the dead man? Still running recognition.
It's taking a while.
How's your dad? I don't know.
It's, uh I mean, you say that word, and it means nothing to me, and now here we are running an operation together like fucking Max Easton and son.
Just don't go pointing any guns at him.
Yeah, I'm not sure I can promise that, actually.
Okay, I've got to go.
I'll call you later.
Are we set? Set.
Well, let's light this candle.
Thank you for your cooperation and your understanding.
Anything for my country.
Right or wrong, right? Right.
Nice job, Steve.
Thanks, sir.
You going to Janie's tonight? Yeah, I was thinking of swinging by around 7:00.
Put one on ice for you.
Appreciate it.
Mr.
Davoud.
In a little while you're going to go before the Iran Directorate.
You're going to speak about your firsthand knowledge of the current Iranian enrichment program at the Alin Power Plant Complex.
There is no such program.
Not anymore.
Everything you're going to say is in here.
Study it.
Commit it to memory.
You're an angel.
Love you, kiddo.
[SIGHS] [PHONE RINGING AND VIBRATING] It's very late.
Things have been a little fraught between us lately.
I just, um This isn't an apology, is it? No.
Good.
It's really not your style.
[LAUGHS] How are things your end? All in hand.
Can I ask you a question? I won't judge you, whatever your answer.
You're drinking.
Aren't you? Ah, it's whiskey.
Doesn't count.
[LAUGHS SOFTLY] Do you ever regret this? Any of it? Yes.
You? Sometimes I think we got too many plates spinning and I can't keep track of them.
And I don't know what's gonna happen when they start to fall and crash.
But they will fall.
Bye, George.
[PHONE RINGING] Hey.
TOUMI: Can you talk? Yeah, go ahead.
Dead man's Farhad Madani.
All right, do we know him? Founding partner at Mashadan Construction, one of Iran's top ten firms.
Three months ago, they were the subject of a takeover bid by American firm Lane Maconnall.
The bid was blocked.
Oh, let me guess.
By Farhad Madani.
It's a couple of days since that drone hit and there's no mention of his death anywhere, nor that he's missing.
Nothing.
And six hours ago, the Mashadan board voted to accept the bid.
The U.
S.
launched a drone strike to facilitate a corporate takeover.
Business by other means.
What do we do? You keep digging.
Okay, I'll call you when we're done.
[THUNDER RUMBLING] She has something, right? Yeah.
What? Come on, let's get this over with first.
One war at a time, right? Yeah.
Something like that.
Couldn't have done this alone.
You trying to say thank you? Yeah.
Just say it.
Thank you.
[SNIFFS] Right.
[PHONE RINGS] [WHISPERS IN FRENCH] Drop the gun! Drop the gun! Drop it! Drop it right now! Put the gun down! Drop the gun! Drop the gun! Drop the gun! Shit.
He's played us.
It's a fucking feint.
He's coming to you.
Get the young one.
Fuck.
Come on! - That's him.
- [ENGINE STARTS] You need to come with me.
- Huh? - Come on.
Get up.
- No, I won't go.
- Both of you, come on.
[SPEAKS FRENCH] I need you to come now.
[SPEAKS FRENCH] You want to hurt my dad! - Fuck you! - Take her downstairs now! - Take her downstairs! - Don't you touch my child! What are you gonna do? Shoot us? Backup! Take them downstairs now.
- Maman.
Maman.
No! No! - Chloe! Chloe! Get off me! Maman! - Maman! Maman! Maman! - Chérie! [OVERLAPPING CHATTER] - Go, go, go, go, go! - Go! - Their possessions leave them.
- No, Maman! I'll take them.
Come on.
Come on! Get in.
That room.
Sit down.
Sit down.
[GRUNTS] Shut up! Cover me.
[MAN GRUNTS] Laurence.
Laurence, please.
Look at me.
Let us go.
How do you think this ends? Look at me.
Look at, look at them.
Look them in the eye.
Imagine that they're your children.
Arlo and Hayden.
You do not talk about my children.
Do you hear me?! You don't want to do this.
You're not that man.
I know that you're not that man.
Laurence, please.
MAX: Chloe? Shut up! Shut up! Anna? We'll disappear.
We'll walk out of here.
Nobody needs to know what happened.
Laurence, please.
Please.
I'm bringing them out.
They're unharmed.
You in exchange for them.
[SOBBING]: No, no, no, please.
That's the deal! Agreed?! Okay, agreed.
You better not be standing by the door when I'm coming out.
It's your family! Weapon on the floor, hands in the air, now! Gun's down.
I'm unarmed.
Get up.
- Get up! - [ANNA MURMURS] Coming out! - Papa! - No! No! - Hey.
Hey, Tiger.
- Papa.
[KICKS GUN] It's gonna be okay.
LAURENCE: Step away from your daddy.
ANNA: Baby.
Ma chérie.
LAURENCE: I'm not gonna say it again.
It's okay.
You go.
[ANNA SPEAKING FRENCH] Okay.
Now, you move out and he stays.
[CRYING]: I want Papa to come with us.
I'm not leaving him here.
MAX: Don't worry, sweetheart.
I'll catch you up, I promise.
[CRIES] Move.
Now.
One last look, please.
Move.
Slowly where I can see you.
MAX: Promise me they'll be safe.
LAURENCE: You have my word.
Thank you.
It means the world to me.
[GRUNTS] - [ALL SHOUT] - HARRY: I'm with Max.
I'm with Max.
Come on, get in.
[GRUNTING] [GRUNTING] [GRUNTING] [GRUNTING] [PANTING] [GROANS] [PHONE VIBRATING]
