Devils (2020) s02e06 Episode Script

Season 2, Episode 6

1 Steady If elected, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is threatening to impose tariffs and bring cases against China in the US and WTO.
Mr Trump maintains that China has been engaged in unfair trading practices for decades.
Mr Ruggero? Yes? Good to see you up and about.
How are you feeling today? I'm fine, thanks.
I'm not sure you're aware, but you've had quite a few visitors.
They left that overnight bag with your clothes.
Was there a woman? Chinese? Miss Wu? Hm.
She came quite a few times.
Is something wrong? Something's missing from my things.
Everything that came in with you should be there.
The nurses will have collected it and put it safely in that bag.
It's not here.
I'll ask.
I need to know who's been in here.
We don't keep a list.
Mr Ruggero, we had to put you into an induced coma to avoid swelling of the brain.
It's normal for some patients to feel enhanced emotions after Doctor, listen, OK? Doctor, listen to me.
Someone took something that belonged to me.
I need to find it.
I'll ask the nurses, of course.
I've got your prescription right here.
Where do I sign to get out of here? Good morning.
Didn't your mother tell you to look both ways before crossing the street? You should be home resting.
No, I'm fine, really.
You came to see me at the hospital, right? Yeah, several times.
Were you ever there with Dominic? Why? Bring me up to speed.
Bad time? If you've got a sandwich, a litre of Scotch, or a 110 billion in bonds, then your timing is perfect.
Just wanted to check in on the 5G.
Well, I'm looking at investing in a consortium of companies to spread the risk.
I'm sure Liwei would prefer a single vendor.
A Chinese vendor? Almost certainly.
But you're right, this is the better strategy.
Can I keep this? Yeah.
Thanks for backing me up, I owe you one.
Just buy me a coffee.
After the shitstorm with Bitcoin, Dominic has been across everything.
And erm "Ms Rain Man" over there has got eyes in the back of her head.
Although, since you've been gone, I think she spent more time on chat forums than anything else.
Have you said anything to her? She works for Dominic.
It's good to see you back.
It's good to be back.
You look a lot better than the last time I saw you.
Not great, but better.
Do you mind if I have a moment alone with Massimo? Of course.
Something wrong? I got a tip last night.
British Telecom and Huawei are entering into a research partnership on 5G.
The UK in China's column.
That's a setback for us.
It's more than a setback.
Whoever controls 5G, wins the war.
He said that UK to be one of the world's leaders in 5G.
The Chinese want to be first, the Japanese want to be first, the Koreans want to be first If Trump takes the White House, he's saying he'll block China in the WTO.
So the UK can't close a 5G deal with China.
Well, the polls say he's gonna lose.
They said the same about Brexit.
We can't afford to wait until November.
I'll game some countermoves.
By the way, what happened? You didn't see the car coming? I guess.
Take care of yourself.
Eleanor's great, but we still need you.
OK, good.
You sure you're OK to work? Don't worry, I've got this.
Chinese food.
Irony isn't lost on me.
Come in.
I was glad to get your call.
Yeah, well You know, I've been thinking.
After Kalim, and then your accident How easy it is to lose the people who matter.
You are Adrian's godfather, right? How is he doing? He is a pain in the arse.
And his birthday is gonna cost me a fortune.
It's a good thing he's so bloody cute, I'm telling you.
Look, so What happened? I mean, you obviously didn't lead Dominic to Nakamoto.
A few hours later you nearly get killed.
Well It was an accident, that's all.
This is about Kalim, our friend.
I'm telling you what happened.
You don't trust me anymore? OK, do you want to talk? Let's talk.
Did you know about me and Zhi? What? No.
So you didn't tell Liwei about that? What the hell makes you think I did that? I'm not thinking, I'm just trying to understand what's going on.
By accusing me of going behind your back? Forget this.
Oliver, stay, please.
Why? So we can pretend we're still friends? We are still friends.
I can't do this.
Enjoy your Chinese, man.
Hey, thanks for doing this.
So it's 40, right? That's right.
How was everything? They were easy.
We'll keep this between us, right? Sure.
Daddy, why is there somebody at your car? Shit! OK, let's spend some extra time Wait one second.
Wanna watch some TV? Yeah? Watch some TV? Let me just Just give him something to watch, yeah? OK.
What are we going to watch? Hey.
Did you leave your mobile behind? Your wish is my command.
You think we're being tracked? I'm certain I am.
By whom? Dominic.
He wanted me to think the Chinese killed Kalim, but I think he's involved.
I see I take it your accident was no accident.
I found a memory stick Damian Curtis gave Kalim.
That's what they were trying to get.
Why? What's on it? I don't know, it's disappeared.
Something to do with Brexit.
Does anybody else know anything about this? No.
It's It's too dangerous.
Well, why are you bloody telling me? Because I need your help, Phil.
What kind of help do you need? BT and Huawei are joining forces to research 5G.
And Dominic wants me to find a way to block it.
Well, you can hardly say no.
I don't need to.
What have you got up your sleeve this time, Ruggero? Another way.
One that ensures neither China, nor the US win the data war.
What other way is there? A consortium of European 5G companies to protect Europe's data.
Our privacy and our freedom.
A worthy cause.
But almost certainly a lost one.
The 13th floor would try and stop us.
Who, us? Yes.
Well, I haven't agreed to anything yet.
What you need is an anchor investor with deep pockets .
a hand in 5G .
and balls as big as yours.
I have someone in mind.
Carter, you should be in bed.
Er Couldn't sleep.
Brush your teeth, now.
Sorry, little man, go on.
Have you locked the gate? Yeah, why? I'm just asking.
Thanks for getting home on time.
How is Zhi? She's fine.
Why'd you ask? Promise me you won't say anything.
Yeah, I promise.
I saw her at the hospital, outside the maternity ward.
What, Zhi's pregnant? Look, just leave it.
Maybe she just couldn't find anywhere else to park.
It's her business.
Hey, sweetie! Let me see.
Shiny! Well done! Squeaky clean! Remember what I told you about brushing them at the back? You all right, sweetie? Are secrets good or bad? Well, it depends.
If the secret is a surprise, like a gift, then it's OK.
But if it's likely to hurt someone, then no.
You know, I'll never be mad about anything you tell me .
as long as it's the truth.
Daddy didn't get home on time.
He got Anna to babysit.
He said not to tell.
Did I say the right thing? Yes.
Yes, you did.
Come on, wipe.
All right, bed! Go, go.
Go, go, go.
I think I found it.
A Swedish company, FramTek.
Their technology is an open platform.
It allows multiple of 5G networks to share a common infrastructure.
Is it scalable? So they tell me.
They're not on NYL's radar? Not yet.
But they're looking to IPO, so we'd have to move quickly.
Let's go to Sweden.
I'm pretty sure you shouldn't be flying yet.
Anyway, they have an office in London.
Good, set it up.
Oh, El? Leave FramTek out of tomorrow's meeting pack.
Just use the other prospects.
I'm sure you have your reasons, but it won't be long before they're big news.
I know, I just need to buy some time.
OK, I'll cover for you with Dominic, but Nadya's bound to notice, she's been all over this.
Then you'd better make it look good.
I will.
How are you feeling? Last I heard you were in hospital.
I'm good, thank you.
Can we speak? Thank you.
We need to talk about Dominic.
What about him? I knew he was spying on NYL.
But I didn't know he might be involved in two murders.
I don't think so.
Are you willing to bet your own money and your good name on that? So you're going to stab him in the back, huh? You know, Massimo, pretty soon you're going to be unemployable.
Losing my job, it would be the least of my problems.
Listen, Dominic's a dangerous man to cross, I'll grant you that.
You don't know Dominic like I do.
You think? Last year we were in Milan.
It was Globe Fair.
You can only marvel so many times at big screens proclaiming the glories of Turkmenistan's textile industry, before your mind turns to other things.
Premier Li Keqiang announced the "Made in China 2025" strategy.
Dominic immediately grasped the implications.
Stonehouse didn't.
What do you think, Jeremy? I think China moving up in the world can only be a good thing.
They wanna do more than just move up.
They wanna dominate.
It's a declaration of war.
Our alliance with China has benefitted both sides.
You mean you're making too much money off cheap imports to care.
It's a short-term view, Jeremy.
There are shifts in power in any relationship.
You had no problem with those imports when you were at NYL.
This isn't about just making money.
We've created a monster, one that's intent on eating its maker.
I don't agree.
Maybe somebody on the 13th floor might.
Dominic, I know it's been hard for you being in exile.
I understand that you're looking for a way back in from the cold.
But this isn't it.
In fact, there is no way back in.
Not for you, not ever.
Stonehouse made the one mistake you must never make with Dominic.
He underestimated him.
Dominic will fight for survival.
He can't afford to lose this war.
"He's a dangerous man to cross".
Your words, not mine.
Good evening, Mr Morgan.
Good night.
You never stop, do you? I have a lot to learn.
You'll go far, Nadya.
Don't stay too late.
Thanks for coming.
It's good to see you.
You too.
I'm surprised you agreed to come, after last time.
A whiskey, please.
You You came to the hospital.
I did.
Thank you.
I'm so sorry about last time.
It's OK.
No, I was angry.
You had every right to be.
Let's leave it in the past, everything, OK? So, I wanted to tell you something.
I'm pregnant.
Say something.
Oh I don't know what to say.
I'm not asking anything from you, but I just thought you should know.
Of course.
Of course.
Now what I don't know.
I I just never saw myself as a mother.
When I got hit by that car I was being chased by two men.
What? If anyone found out about the pregnancy you could be dragged into it, too.
Tia Widholm, this is Massimo Ruggero, our CEO.
Nice to meet you.
Tia is FramTek's Chief Technology Officer.
Will Mr Morgan be joining us as well? No, I believe he signed the NDA we sent over.
Yes, of course.
We're all very excited about this opportunity.
You already know our platform is Open RAN, allowing for a public 5G highway controlled entirely by the user.
The bedrock of our approach at FramTek is privacy.
We have a shared vision for what we call "democratic technology".
Global access and safety for all, but not just for us now, but for the future of our children and their children.
And you can deliver what you're promising? We must.
For the future of the free world.
Which is why, as much as I appreciate your interest, there's no way in hell we'd sell to Dominic Morgan.
Let's just say we doubt very much he shares our vision.
No, he doesn't, Ms Widholm, but we do.
Take your hands off me! I'm leaving! Are you the one that did this? Or was it your master, Cheng? Do I know you? My parents' business has been ruined, contracts cancelled, assets frozen.
My little sister here in London is to be deported to a country she's never known.
I'm really sorry, but I don't understand what any of this has to do with our bank, Mister Carl Wong.
Ask your boyfriend.
My boyfriend? Ask Massimo.
Sir, please.
I'm leaving.
She visited Massimo three times in hospital, that we know about.
And then met him again last night.
About? That we don't know.
Sorry, should I come back later? No, no, it's fine.
I was just leaving.
How are the 5G prospects coming along? Good.
Yeah, we've identified an interesting company.
FramTek, out of Sweden.
Open RAN.
As we discussed, we're modelling it both ways.
Does Zhi know about this? Not yet.
I want to invite you to dinner Monday night.
Bring your wife.
We've been keeping you from her.
We would love that.
Please, have a seat.
How is Zhi doing? Fine.
She seems distracted to me.
I thought perhaps you could offer some insight.
Wait! Uh-oh! I don't know how you do it.
Juggle work and two young children so effortlessly.
Oh, trust me, it takes effort.
This is the face of a woman on the edge.
Here you go.
Is it that hard? It is, but it's worth it.
You know, the anxiety, the energy, the effort.
You know, being a Mum has taught me so much about what love really means.
It's the best thing I've ever done, or ever will do.
Oliver, could you get the gate for me, please? Don't worry, I'll finish it.
Thank you.
Er Am I interrupting? Oliver forgot to invite you.
I'm going to kill him.
I shouldn't have turned up like this.
No, of course you're invited.
It's your godson's birthday! It's OK.
No, please, for me.
All right.
Thank you.
Come on.
After me.
All right.
I didn't think you'd wanna come.
Don't worry.
How are you? Good.
The other night, after I came to your house, someone broke into my car.
Daddy! How are you? Hey, one sec.
Did they take anything? No.
What aren't you telling me, Massimo? Hey.
Awww! Hey, you, superhero! Happy birthday.
How are you? I'm good, you? Good.
Listen, do you know a man named Carl Wong? Yes, why? He was at NYL yesterday.
He said that China's punishing his family for something he did.
Is he all right? No, he didn't seem all right.
I'll speak to him.
Thank you for letting me know.
Do you No, go ahead.
Good morning.
Thank you all for coming.
Do you mind if Nadya joins us? Not at all.
Carry on.
I'd like to present our initial 5G targets.
If you'll turn to page one These five companies offer a solid growth trajectory, and a healthy spread of holdings across Europe.
I have a question.
The Swedish company, FramTek It isn't here, why not? FramTek's an interesting prospect.
We're looking at it.
"Interesting" doesn't quite describe it.
If FramTek succeeds, then Open RAN could totally disrupt the 5G market.
We are not looking for disruption.
We're looking for scale, synergy.
So we acquire it to shut it down, get rid of a potential threat.
That's a good point.
Perhaps we will.
Any other question? Yes But I'd like to know what we're going to be doing about data protection.
Now this is absolutely Thank you very much.
You're welcome.
Thank you.
Thank you.
That seemed to go well.
Thank you.
Except for FramTek.
As I said, it's not a great moment I understand you had a meeting with Tia Widholm.
Yes, we've met with several companies.
Rebecca's right.
Acquire them and shut them down.
You didn't see FramTek? You did see FramTek.
Speak up next time.
That's why you're here.
Here you go.
Everything looks normal.
Thank you.
We'll check the structures at the next scan.
If you like, we can see if we can make out the sex.
I know last time you were considering your options.
How are you feeling about things now? You don't have to make a decision just yet.
I've made my decision.
I'm glad you were able to join us, Mrs Harris.
Latoyah, please.
We keep Oliver away from you enough, so this is the least we can do.
You both work very hard.
And have two young children.
Yeah, well, we don't get much time together, but we're very fortunate.
Yeah, we are.
But I confess I have an ulterior motive.
We need to ask Oliver something that might demand a little more of your precious time.
We wondered if you're interested in serving as Head of Trading.
But I've just been made Chief Strategy Officer, and Zhi is Is pregnant.
You would be the second-youngest Head of Trading NYL has ever had.
After Massimo.
Are you interested? Yeah.
I'm just surprised.
Latoyah? This isn't because Zhi's pregnant, is it? You do know that women can work and be mothers.
Of course.
No, we have a different path in mind for Zhi.
Now, we chose Oliver because we think he's ready for the job.
I will eat to that.
Your wife didn't seem pleased.
No, she is.
And look, I'm very grateful for this opportunity.
Thank you.
I didn't want to say it at the table, but there's something you need to do for me first.
What's that? We'll discuss it tomorrow.
Shall we? What was that about? You don't side-line a woman just because she's pregnant.
And you thought tonight was the time to put the world straight? With my promotion on the line? I'm worried about you.
Where's that come from? You stole private data from my computer.
You lied about being home for the kids.
Who told you that? Are you denying it? And you told Liwei about Zhi's pregnancy, after you promised me that you wouldn't.
I didn't tell Liwei.
Enough lies, Oliver.
I don't know who you are any more.
I'm the same man I've always been.
Then maybe you were never the man I thought you were.
Do Do you I can come in? Yeah, sure, come in.
Drink? Milk.
Milk Er For you.
That's disgusting.
What is it? I don't know.
Oat milk.
You really shouldn't drink that.
So Why are you here? Where did you get this? The hospital.
And now you're giving it back.
Why? I heard them arguing after your accident.
You have to get it back.
You expect me to go into the ICU and take it? You do whatever it takes, Dominic.
If I go down you go down with me.
Go down with me.
I never trusted her.
I'm certain Dominic doesn't either.
But he needed her money in the beginning.
Now he can't get rid of her.
Why are you doing this? I think you're trying to do the right thing.
You let Nakamoto get away, didn't you? You lied about FramTek to keep them from buying it.
What? You're even more clever than I thought you were.
Thank you.
I know you care about Dominic.
He will find out.
I'll be gone by then.
How did you get this? It's complicated.
Can you tell me what's on it? Of course.
It's Damian's predictions on Brexit.
He was right.
He said it would be Remain.
It would've been.
What is it? This shows someone accessed his data, profiling undecided voters in 12 key counties Targeting with social media misinformation for 48 hours leading up to the referendum.
They used Damian's data to change the outcome of the election.
But why? You, the British people, will decide.
A victory for real people! For ordinary people! For decent people! To make hundreds of millions of pounds.
Can you make a copy of this? I'll upload it to cloud, that way it can't be erased.
Thank you.
What are you doing here? I need your help.
But I thought you said it was dangerous.
I know.
"They will soon be calling me Mr Brexit", tweeted Donald Trump on Thursday.
And no one was sure quite what to make of it.
We have been alarmed by the comments he made during his election campaign.
What do you want? Good evening to you, too.
Well? You will secure my early release, getting my sentence commuted to time served.
Even if I could do that, why on earth would I? Because with a little gentle persuasion, I've acquired what you've been looking for.
Where from? You mean you don't know that? Trump! Trump! Trump! We're getting screwed by every foreign country in the world.
We have been for years.
To be honest, we are sick and tired of politicians.
I think he's three steps ahead of everybody I've seen.
He's a chess player, everybody else is playing checkers.
It's overwhelming, OK? "Overwhelming" for lack of a better word.
