FBI (2018) s04e18 Episode Script

Fear Nothing

Nice to see you again.
It's all there.
Feel free to count it.
Look, I know we talked about this before, but I just need to hear you say it one more time.
You're a true patriot, Tom.
Not sure about that, but I have my rules.
I know the lines I'm willing to cross and the ones I'm not.
We understand.
- So if you don't mind - Like I said before, we will not use it here in America.
I promise.
Here you go, fellas.
Hope everything works out for you.
Thank you, Tom.
We appreciate this very much.
Have you thought about Tinder? - Tinder? - Hmm.
I'm an FBI agent.
And that does not mean that we can't sign up for dating apps, Maggie.
Absolutely not.
You know, I'm gonna meet somebody the old-fashioned way.
- Oh? - Yeah.
Like a grocery store or maybe at a dive bar playing pool.
- Playing pool? - Mm-hmm.
So you want to ignore this incredible piece of technology and hope that Mr.
Right bumps into you while you are buying grapes? Yep.
Good luck.
Man, I would love to know how to do that.
Looks awesome.
Okay, go to Montauk, take some surf lessons.
I mean, I would, but you know.
FBI agents aren't allowed to take surf lessons either.
- I forgot.
- No.
I'm afraid of the ocean.
- Did someone in your family - What, die? No, nothing like that.
It's just scary.
What? You don't have any irrational fears? Just have it all together? My fears are rational, Maggie.
Hello? Okay.
We're on the way.
Let's go.
Victim's name is Tom Hamilton, a security guard at the Federal Reserve Bank Reason why we reached out to you guys.
Shot three times in the chest.
Found the casings, nine millimeter.
Okay, we're gonna need that sent to 26 Fed for processing.
- Not a problem.
- Any witnesses? None that we can find.
No security cameras.
Was this a robbery? Doubt it.
Wallet is still in his pocket.
Watch still on his wrist.
I'll get Ian to scrub this.
Maybe we can give you some answers.
Oh Victim's wife.
I thought he was going to work.
That's what he told me, anyway.
Does Tom have friends in this part of town? No, not that I know of.
Well, had anything unusual been going on? Did he owe anyone money? We had credit card bills.
- Did he gamble? - No.
He doesn't believe in it.
He was a good man.
He was in the military for 20 years.
God, family, country, that's what he cared about.
That's how he lived his life.
Just doesn't explain why he woke up this morning and drove to a remote area like this.
Was anybody threatening him? Had there been any harassment? No.
Are they I need to see him.
I need to say goodbye.
All right, so we have a federal security guard, a seemingly ordinary husband, father of three shot in a deserted industrial park in the early hours of the morning.
So why was he there? Was he meeting someone? Any issues with law enforcement? None.
Not even a parking ticket.
Have we learned anything from his car? GPS shows Hamilton left his home and drove directly to where he was killed.
- No detours.
- Okay.
So it seems like this was a pre-planned meeting.
He tells his wife he's going to work, but he goes to this vacant industrial park.
So there's no text on his cell phone discussing the meeting? Calls to the person he was meeting? No, I looked through several weeks of data.
Most of his calls and texts were to his wife and kids.
Hey, great news.
NYPD ShotSpotter caught the sound of the shooting.
Gives us an exact time of the murder: 6:22 a.
Oh, okay.
Its camera pick up anything? No, but I found traffic cam footage two blocks away.
Shows a blue Lexus blowing through a red light at 6:24, two minutes after our shots.
Might be our shooter.
Plates come back to a 2018 Toyota Camry.
So they're using cold plates.
Can we get a better shot of the driver and passenger? Negative.
Tried running facial rec, image is too weak.
Guys, we need to find another shot of this car, yeah? Send Tiffany and Scola to the victim's house.
Have them talk to the wife again.
Let's get a better picture of who Hamilton really was and have them grab any computers - and electronic devices.
- Yeah, yeah.
We don't have a computer.
What about a tablet? You know, like a iPad? No, no, we weren't into all that high-tech stuff.
Ma'am, we checked your husband's emails and texts.
Most of the emails that he sent were from a computer, not a phone.
So we know you're lying.
We're not here to judge you or your husband.
Just trying to figure out what happened.
Come on.
Angie, talk to us.
We're on your side.
I I just don't wanna go to jail.
What do you mean? Why would you be afraid of that? Tom was a good man.
But he started getting these crazy ideas about the country, the government.
So he wanted to be ready.
Ready for what? The revolution.
I never came in here, but I sort of knew what was inside.
This one's empty.
GB gas projectile.
What is that? That's sarin gas.
I thought we got rid of chemical weapons years ago.
Ma'am, we're gonna need you to come down to 26 Fed.
I thought you said I wasn't gonna have to come in.
That was before we knew that you were in possession of one of the deadliest weapons ever made.
Angie, how would Tom have gotten access to sarin gas and all of the other weapons? His last assignment was lieutenant in charge of Blue Grass Depot's armory.
Are you saying he stole it? I didn't ask.
But like I said, he was obsessed with this idea of the government turning against its people.
Started spending hours in these crazy chat rooms.
So he found other like-minded people.
You think it's possible that one of them might have killed Tom for the sarin gas? Tom said they were patriots like him.
Why would they kill him? I know how it sounds, but the facts are the facts.
The sarin gas crate was empty and Tom's dead.
So that's most likely what happened.
If Tom if Tom did it, he did it for me.
What do you mean? He'd recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and he kept saying that he wanted to make sure that I had a good life after he passed.
And I said that I was fine, that he didn't need to worry, and he kept saying that he was gonna cash out a few things, leave me a lot of money so that I could live comfortably without him.
Well, if you're looking for a payday, sarin gas is a valuable commodity to a particular group of people.
- You mean terrorists? - Yeah.
The reason we signed the Chemical Weapons Treaty in 1997 is because the effect its deployment has are horrendous.
- I've seen it with my own eyes.
- Agreed.
So let's track down these two men in the blue Lexus before something horrendous happens.
Yes, ma'am.
I can't believe Hamilton stole sarin gas.
I mean, I don't care how scared of the government you are.
He knows exactly how dangerous this stuff really is.
Well, the fact that he's using it as a payday to leave money to his wife? We need antidote needles just in case.
What? Sarin gas targets your neuromuscular junctions, where your nerves meet your muscles.
- Mm-hmm.
- After about a few minutes, you are left paralyzed from your head to your toes.
You sit there completely helpless trying to breathe, but you can't.
You feel all of it and after about 10, 15 minutes you die.
You've seen it deployed? Yeah, in Mosul.
And it was the scariest thing I have ever seen, Maggie.
And I think that we all need to be scared of this.
Okay, I found a series of encrypted conversations between Hamilton and another person regarding the potential sale of "yellow stuff.
" Now, I'm guessing that's code for mustard gas.
It's technically not the same as sarin, which is clear, but it's close enough.
Can you crack the firewall, see who this other guy is? I already tried.
Did they say why they wanted it? Yeah said he wanted to take revenge against the Syrian government for killing his family three years ago.
So they're getting the gas here and then bringing it back to Syria? That's backwards.
I mean, how did they expect to smuggle it out of the country? Maybe they have access to a private plane? Even then it'd be difficult to conceal a projectile that size.
It seems like Hamilton was concerned about that too.
Why do you say that? Okay, according to these texts, Hamilton was worried that the buyer was going to use the sarin here in America.
So he said he first wanted to meet up with the buyer face-to-face to discuss his plans for the item being sold.
The only reason why they would kill Hamilton is if they were lying to him and they intend to use it here in the U.
This face-to-face meeting, where did it take place? 1455 Overbrook Avenue, Brooklyn.
I'm on it.
According to Ian, they met four days ago - at 4:00 p.
in Brooklyn.
- Mm.
Little more.
Little more.
- Yep.
- Got it.
Okay, that's good enough for facial rec, yeah? Yep.
We got a hit.
Hakeen Abbas.
All right.
Eyes up.
Age 51, Syrian national, here on a work visa.
Looks like he's a scientist.
Been employed at three biotech firms over the past 12 years.
Last one was called Gen Research.
But he doesn't work for them now? No, it doesn't look like it.
Do you have a current address on file? No, but he's got a sister who lives in Astoria.
We'll send you the address.
Ma'am, we're looking for your brother.
I don't know where he is.
He came by my house last night, asked to borrow my car.
- What kind of car? - A Lexus.
- Is it a dark blue one? - Yes.
- Does it have a GPS? - It doesn't.
Can someone please tell me what the hell going on? We think that your brother is in possession of a dangerous and illegal weapon.
It's a serious crime.
You're not surprised to hear me say that, are you? My brother's not well.
Not well? What do you mean? He's in a different world.
All he talks about is the government and politics.
That's why I kicked him out a few weeks ago.
He's been getting scary.
What prompted all of this? He lost both his sons, my nephews three years ago in a missile attack in Syria.
He never recovered.
The whole thing is so sad.
Hakeem is such a brilliant man.
But ever since the United States dropped those bombs in Damascus he's been checked out, like something inside broke.
Okay, ma'am, we really need to find your brother.
I'm telling you, I don't know where he is.
Does he have a cell phone? No, at least none that I know of.
Where does he live? Ma'am, your brother and another man killed someone this morning.
Shot them three times in the chest, and they were driving your car, which means we can charge you as well.
I don't know anything about that.
I was just trying to help him out.
- He's my brother.
- Where is he staying? Hey, this is your last chance.
Or you will be arrested, Zara.
Do you understand? He moved into a house in Flushing with another man.
- What's the man's name? - His first name is Nassar.
Says he lost family members in the attack as well.
They met online in some chat room.
They both believe America needs to pay for its crimes against Syria.
Their words, not mine.
And that's all I know.
We need that address right now.
Hakeem Abbas, this is the FBI! We need to talk.
Anybody home? OA, don't! What the Do not breach.
Do not breach.
There's an IED in the house.
No chemical component to the bomb? No a claymore with a trip wire attached.
Serial number indicates it was U.
Army issue.
So our victim Hamilton obviously sold Abbas more than sarin gas munition.
Yeah, it looks like it, but it's still not adding up.
Abbas is a biotech engineer.
He shouldn't have experience with stuff like this.
Yeah, but you can learn anything on the internet these days.
And plus, with his educational background Not like this.
Positioning a claymore to do maximum damage takes practice and knowhow.
There were two men in the black car that fled the crime scene, correct? Yeah.
The sister said that Abbas was living with Nassar.
There's a good chance that he was the other guy in the car with him.
All right, folks, listen up.
The stakes have been raised.
According to his sister, Abbas and his associate or associates' beef is with the United States, not with Syria.
So that sarin gas, they likely intend on using that here in New York City, unless we find them.
Add to that they anticipated our visit and planned accordingly, we got work to do.
- Let's go.
- Good news.
NYPD just recovered their blue Lexus over in Brooklyn.
Okay, good.
So they're feeling the heat, they ditch the car.
Get Tiffany and Scola over there ASAP.
Any witnesses see the car being dumped? No.
And the car reeks of bleach.
Looks like they wiped it down inside.
So much for finding any evidence.
What you got? Camera on the west side of that building.
Any luck, it might have caught Abbas ditching the car.
How are we doing with that building security camera footage? Just finished downloading it.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
There he is.
Okay, he's getting into that You run the plates on the beamer? Yep.
DV records indicate it was stolen out of Manhattan a few hours ago.
Rewind it.
I can't see the driver.
Let's hope he didn't disable the GPS.
Uh-huh, he didn't.
It's showing he's currently on the move in Brooklyn.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
It's stationary there.
Can you get traffic cams? Already on it.
This is a live visual.
Can you punch in on the driver's face? Running facial rec now.
Got a hit.
Nassar Ali, Syrian-born, and currently wanted for terrorist activity against American troops overseas.
All right, folks.
This is our second suspect.
Let's dig in.
That's the name of the guy that was living with Abbas.
His sister said they met in a chat room and that his family had been killed in Damascus as well.
Well, obviously he's the one with the IED expertise, which means he's an experienced insurgent.
If that's the case, they won't stop at just a single attack.
Yeah, get Tiffany and Scola over there to intercept ASAP.
You got nowhere to go, Nassar! Out of the car with your hands in the air now.
We got civilians in the line of fire.
No need for guns.
Turn the car off and show me your hands! - Do it now! - Yeah.
Whatever you want.
Just don't shoot.
You with the phone, step away now! I said hands! Show me your hands! Hands! Shots fired.
We need backup at our location immediately.
He's running! Damn it.
We need to set up a containment now.
Four block radius.
Our suspect was last seen heading northbound.
- Copy that.
- Go.
Hey, Tiff, we need to secure this BMW right away.
Hey, hold on.
Hey, they found the BMW.
Nassar opened fire.
No one was hit, but he did manage to escape.
NYPD contain the area? Yeah, but we have not found him yet.
What about the sarin gas munition? No, but I sent the K-9 unit down to check for traces.
Which means it's either already been planted or still in Abbas' possession.
Well, every available agent is heading down to the containment now.
- Good.
Find this bastard.
- Yeah.
We've got the place buttoned up.
- No way he's broken containment.
- Good to hear.
Keep your people in place while our agents set up a grid search on foot.
- Anything? - Dog alerted on the trunk, so the sarin gas shell was in here at some point.
The bag's from the hardware store here.
- Explains why he came here.
- So what's he buying? Electronic housing components and a timer.
Everything you need to make a bomb.
There are multiple timers in here.
All right.
I'll bring Jubal up to speed.
- Jubal? - Yeah.
Nassar is still on the loose, but he left behind items that indicate he and Abbas are planning on making more than one bomb.
- I might have something.
- Yeah.
I've been scrubbing the vehicle's prior GPS records Where it went, stopped.
And after leaving the crime scene where they ditched the sister's car, the BMW drove directly to an industrial building in upstate New York, then to the hardware store where Scola and Tiffany confronted Nassar.
So he probably dropped Abbas at the first stop he made.
What type of building? A hotel? No.
It's a private biotech lab.
Gen Research.
Why does that sound familiar? That's the company Abbas last worked for.
But records show it was shuttered about six months ago.
Well, if you're gonna transfer sarin gas into another devices, you need a lab, an empty lab.
All right, get Maggie and OA over there now.
Yeah, it's a 45-minute drive at least.
It is, but it's a whole hell a lot faster in a bureau chopper.
Thank you.
Okay, there's a SWAT team with protective gear on their way to the lab now.
Our plan is to get eyes on the place and wait - for their arrival.
- Well, ground crew just said that we're looking at a 20-minute flight.
How far is SWAT and HAZMAT? 45, maybe more.
- That's not good.
- I know.
It's not ideal, but we need to wait for the protective gear and you have to trust me on this one, okay? Okay.
Let's go.
Everything to the east has already been checked.
Okay, it's only a matter of time before we find them.
I'll cover.
We have an agent down.
We need an ambulance at our location ASAP.
He's dead.
Be advised, our suspect is in possession of an FBI raid jacket.
Any agent that is not immediately recognized should be approached with extreme caution.
Come on.
He's gotta be somewhere.
Kelly, anything on the traffic cams? Negative.
No sign of him yet.
I've been scanning street security feeds.
Haven't seen any Wait.
I think I have him.
Yeah? - Okay.
Is this live? - Mm-hmm.
Hey, we got eyes on the suspect.
He's walking southbound on Newel Street.
Suspect is fleeing northbound on Newel Street.
Get down! Nassar! It's over.
Put your damn hands in the air.
Hands in the air.
We got a suspect down.
Roll an ambulance to the 1200 block of Till Street.
He's dead.
Burner phone.
Maybe this will help.
I'll get the information from it to the JOC.
Keep going.
Ian, what are we getting from Nassar's burner? I want every location called, every text sent.
Not showing any texts, and the cell's only been used to call one other number.
- Okay.
Who's it registered to? - No idea.
It's another burner.
But the last call was made five minutes before Nassar was killed.
Okay, that's probably Nassar warning Abbas that we're onto to them.
Can we ping the location from the second burner? Already did it's bouncing off a tower within a block of that upstate medical lab where Abbas used to work.
Isobel, we have eyes on the perimeter.
Change of plans.
We think Nassar warned Abbas.
What does that mean for us? It means we do not have time to wait for SWAT.
We need you to make entry now.
SWAT is about 15 minutes out.
It might be better to contain the area - and wait for them to arrive - Negative.
If Abbas has flood the area with the sarin gas, we need to know as soon as possible.
I know it's not ideal, but we need to get answers fast.
Kelly, you find the schematics - for that building yet? - Yeah.
Just uploaded it.
Okay, great.
Hey, Maggie and OA, looking at the plans for the building.
Looks like there are five labs inside of it.
I mean, all suitable for Abbas' needs, right? So you're gonna have to clear each and every one of them.
Copy that.
We're making entry now.
We got a lot of ground to cover.
- We need to split up.
- Okay.
Keep a look out for IEDs.
If Abbas has been warned, we don't know what he's done to prepare.
Keep each other updated every time you clear a lab.
Hey, Jubal, we're splitting up.
OA's taking the east side of the building.
I'm taking the west.
That's a good idea.
Just be safe, please.
Okay, Mags, I got a trip wire.
Be careful.
Lab on the first floor is clear.
East side lab is clear.
Copy that.
Clearing the stairwell.
Heading up to the second floor.
OA, we got another IED in the stairwell.
You gotta watch yourself.
Roger that.
Shots fired.
Second floor.
It's Abbas.
Copy that.
I'm on my way.
Maggie, contain the area and wait for OA.
I'm already in pursuit.
I'm on my way, Maggie.
Hold your position.
Do not pursue! Abbas, there's nowhere to go.
I want you to put your gun down and show me your hands.
Listen, enough people have been hurt.
This needs to end now.
End it? Never! Nassar is dead.
I'm telling you it is over.
Put down your weapon and show me your hands right now.
No, it's not over.
I know that you're hurting, Abbas.
I spoke with your sister Zara.
I know that both your sons were killed.
But causing more pain and suffering is not gonna bring them back.
Look, your only way out of this is if you surrender and you show me your hands now.
No! No! Maggie, get out of there! Door closing.
No, no, no, no! No.
OA, we have a situation.
Abbas is down, but one of the sarin canisters is open.
I can't get out.
OA, please.
I'm coming, Maggie.
- OA, where are you? - I'm here, I'm here, I'm here.
I can't open the door.
Please, there's gotta be, like, a button.
If there's anything, please open this door.
- I'm trying.
I'm trying.
- Please.
Come on.
It's sealed.
Okay, listen.
I need you to find something to cover your mouth, okay? A mask, anything.
Oh, my God.
Stay away from the door! - It's not - OA.
OA, come on.
It's not gonna go.
Maggie, it's not gonna go.
OA, please, you've gotta get me out of here.
Maggie, I need you to slow your breathing.
Okay? Slow your breathing.
Come on.
You've gotta find a way.
Please, get me out of here! No, no.
Stay with me.
SWAT is on the way.
Okay? - Oh, my God.
- Hey, hey.
Right here, okay? Slow your breathing.
OA? I need you to slow your breathing.
I can't really breathe anymore.
- No, no, no.
Stay with me.
- OA.
Stay with me.
Hey, stay with me! I can't really breathe.
No, no.
- OA? - No, no! No, Maggie! Maggie! OA, you've gotta find something heavy enough to break that glass.
Find me a doctor and expert in sarin gas now.
How far are the SWAT? Approximately 8 miles away.
Okay, OA, SWAT is still 10 minutes out with protective gear.
We also have local police and ERT on their way.
Keep looking.
She does not have 10 minutes.
I have to breach now.
No, I understand, but we've gotta have a plan first.
We are tracking down a specialist as we speak.
- Where are we, Kelly? - Yeah.
I got a biologist coming down from the lab, former medical doctor.
Meet him at the elevator.
You need to find something heavy to break that glass, OA.
All right, we have an agent who's been exposed to sarin gas.
She's unconscious.
- How long has she? - Three minutes ago.
We need to get her out of there now.
She needs fresh air.
We don't have much time.
We have an agent at the scene, but he does not have protective gear.
Let me talk to him.
OA, listen up.
This is Dr.
You need to find some sort of PPE, a shield, a proper surgical mask.
I'm in an empty building.
There are not a lot of options.
I'm going in now.
I need two minutes, max.
No, you need protection.
Two minutes is too long.
- She's gonna die, doctor! - I know.
But if you go in without a mask, you'll die too.
Only chance you have to help her, to save her is finding some type of protective gear.
Anything that covers your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Damn it! The lab self-sealed because of the leak.
If you breach a window significantly enough and fresh air is introduced, there's a chance the lock will probably disengage.
What do you mean "probably?" Just being honest.
You still have those antidote needles, OA? - Yes, two.
- Great.
Just be sure to use 'em the second you're outside.
Fresh air first, antidote needles second.
Should I inject myself before I go in? Negative.
If you use the syringe before the onset of symptoms, it will be ineffective.
- Will a painter's mask do? - Yes, it's fine.
There's still a risk the gas penetrates the skin.
- You should cover - Damn it! I found them.
I'm going in.
Go, go, go.
Oh, God.
Oh, God.
Come on.
Come on, come on, come on! Come on! Hey, hey, I got you, Mag.
I got you.
I got you.
I got you.
I got you.
I got you.
You're gonna be okay.
You're gonna be okay.
We're in here! Move out the way! Speak up, please, please, please.
It's gonna be okay, Maggie, please.
You're gonna be okay.
It's gonna be okay.
You awake? Hey.
How you feeling? I'm okay.
Yeah? Good.
So what'd they say? The exposure was minimal.
They just need to run a few more tests.
Okay, great.
How's Maggie? Uh, you know, her exposure was more significant, so her damage will be, but we don't know what that means yet.
I wanna see her.
Well, you need to rest.
Jubal, I have to see her now.
Room 481.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Any updates? Doctor said that he's hopeful.
Hopeful? What the hell is that supposed to mean? Said that there is a reasonable chance she'll make a full recovery.
A good chance.
Hey, Maggie.
It's OA.
I don't know if you can hear me, but, uh the doctor said that you just need to get some rest and then you can come back to work because I need you to come back to work.
'Cause you're not checking out on me.
I'm not gonna allow it.
Do you understand me? Do you understand me? I'm here and I'm gonna be here for you, okay? Because I need you.
I need you.
I can't do this without you.
I don't wanna do this without you.
There she is.
It's gonna be okay.
