Gang Related (2014) s01e13 Episode Script


Previously on Gang Related I've done everything you've asked me to: military, LAPD.
This is what you're protecting, is family.
Cap, uh, I was gonna tell you.
Ryan, if I had to handpick someone for my daughter, it would be you.
I need to get out for the family.
My bosses will expect you to meet every payment deadline.
They'll hold you and your family accountable.
_ _ When something's about to go down, Javier warns us.
What are you saying? Javier has a mole.
I've been thinking what you said about Ryan maybe being the mole.
I think that you're onto something.
You're surrounded, Acosta! Step outside the vehicle with your hands up! What happened? IA believed I was the mole.
I had to do my job.
When I went home tonight, my split kit was gone.
You've reached the voice mail of Agent Paul Carter.
Carter, it's Jessica.
I-I know I'm the last person you want to hear from right now.
You're the only person I can trust.
It's about Ryan Lopez.
Just, I'll tell you about it when I can.
Please call me back.
Was what we had even real? It's the only thing in my life that wasn't a lie.
One of my ADAs knows the identity of one your guys inside the GTF.
I want to know why I had to find out from her.
I'm one of the few friends you have left.
Silvia - Silvia, what's wrong? - It's Daniel.
Ryan, he's not the same.
Daniel! I'm gonna do everything in my power to put you in the same supermax as El Mozo.
To become king, you have to kill the king.
We share a common enemy Metas.
Please! Please! - I got no squabbles with the Metas.
- Not yet.
Sooner or later, they will come after you, Lavar.
And you will need me as much as I need you.
The Metas are planning to retaliate against Chapel for the bust he made this morning.
What kind of retaliation? Put a hit on him.
On Chapel? On his daughter.
Cap, we need to find Jessica! Caught in a minute In a dream that I had Everything is perfect They're letting go of the past Stop in the middle With a dream in my head Living the moment Up on the edge Somewhere else, but you are Somewhere else Somewhere else But you are somewhere else Rocks form the house It is falling apart Everything feels right right here Right from the start Floating in the river Oh-oh, holding your hand Oh, girl, red blood I'm your man Somewhere else, but you are Somewhere else.
Ryan - I'm so sorry.
- I don't want sorry.
I want information.
I want to know whoever did this and I want them to pay.
Tio, no one knows the Metas better than you.
Who was it? Look at me! I know you know.
You have to tell me, okay? Tell me! I can't, Ryan.
I can.
I know exactly who it was because I saw that sledgehammer two feet from my face.
Just like the one they found at Jessica's house.
It was the Metas' enforcer.
Matias Villarreal.
- Daniel! - If somebody did that to the woman you love, you wouldn't go after them? He deserves to know.
Where is he? In the wind.
Went south.
Not exactly sure where the Metas are hiding him.
Ryan, Javier asked me to tell you, he needs you here implementing the plan to kill El Mozo.
Look, we're gonna get these guys.
The plan's already in motion.
But you need to stop.
I can't do that.
We need to talk.
I know that Matias Villarreal murdered my daughter, Mozo, and I know that you ordered it.
Sorry for your loss, Captain Chapel, but I already told the cops we didn't do it.
We were set up! You son of a bitch.
This is gonna be your wake-up call every day for the rest of your life until you give me Matias.
I said we didn't do it.
Damn it! What the hell are you doing? I'm conducting an interrogation, Ed.
I suggest you go back to your office if you don't have the stomach for it.
I suggest you two stand down unless you want to sleep here tonight.
There are rules for questioning He murdered my child! I know this must be a difficult time for you, Sam, I do.
But he's a star witness in a federal trial.
You want to question this scumbag, you go ahead and do it.
You do it the right way.
I know how much you're hurting, Sam, but, come on, what were you thinking? I was thinking of my daughter.
You storm into a federal prison and you attack a government witness? And I would do it again.
No, you won't.
Because you are suspended without further notice.
You don't have that authority.
Well, the chief does.
He signed off on it.
Come on, Sam.
What do you expect us to do? Do you realize Mozo's lawyer is pushing for a mistrial? You go all cowboy in there and make a mockery of the legal system.
- That's the message you sent.
- All right, forget that she was my daughter.
Forget that this has anything to do with me.
She was your Assistant District Attorney.
You suspend me, you're putting a target on the back of everyone in the Justice Department, and you're telling the Metas that hunting season is open - that's the message you're sending.
- No, there is nothing I would like more than to watch you beat the truth out of that animal.
Okay? But that is not what Jessica would want, and you and I both know it.
He's not gonna get away with this.
He's gonna burn in hell for what he did.
Yes, he will.
But I got to get him there the right way.
My office is gonna make a proper case.
I will find the person that killed her and I will link him directly up with Mozo and I will put them both on death row.
I promise you, Sam.
But in the meantime, you are suspended.
So what's the plan? It doesn't matter, Ryan.
If you're going after Matias alone, you're gonna get yourself killed.
-Well, some things are worth dying for.
- Captain, - there's a right way to do this.
- Yeah, and we can.
Thanks to Cassius, we know where to find Matias.
- Where is he? - My DEA contacts spotted him two hours ago in this border town of Mexicali.
We spoke to the D.
's office.
They're just waiting for a judge to get his extradition papers.
Well, they won't.
Extraditing Matias would mean getting permission from the Mexican authorities, and the Metas own all the politicians down there.
The man who murdered my daughter will not be punished by the law he'll be protected by it.
If I want to get to Matias, to El Mozo, I can't do it through legal channels.
So what are we gonna do? Not "we".
I'm going down to Mexico.
I'll get Matias myself.
No, no, that's exactly how it has to be.
These guys don't get to ruin any more good cops.
Well, it ain't a cop that's going with you.
We're a family.
We go down there, we don't have the protection of the law.
We have no authority.
Anything goes wrong, we're on our own.
We do this together or not at all.
All right.
We came as soon as we could.
What happened? I move to the supermax in Pelican Bay tomorrow, but we have a problem.
Department of Corrections scattered the Angelicos that were in Pelican Bay to other prisons around the state.
You got to cancel the transfer.
Pop, Pelican Bay's controlled by the Metas and the Lords.
You go in there without Angelico muscle, - you won't make it a day.
- No.
We move forward with the plan.
Right now, the Metas believe they're the ones who are setting the trap.
What they don't know is that their head is already in ours.
But it needs to be a surgical strike.
The timing exact.
At the same time Gnomo and his soldiers take out El Mozo's lieutenants and Matias in Mexicali, I'll take out El Mozo myself.
Pop, that's suicide.
You ain't got no one to back you up.
We do.
The Lords.
Lavar owes us after we tipped him off to the GTF's gunrunning case.
The Metas control the largest wing of the prison.
The east wing, okay? But the Lords control the west.
If we can get you housed there with the Lords' support, you'll have the manpower you need to strike.
No, no.
If word gets out that we need the Lords' protection, we'll be putting a bull's-eye on every Angelico.
We need to take down the Metas ourselves.
We don't have enough time.
We don't have enough soldiers.
But there is no way I am backing out now.
Perhaps it's time we tried to do things differently.
What are you getting at? We'll go ahead with your plan for now, Daniel.
But, Daniel, you must reach out to Lavar and make sure he agrees to it.
I already did.
I should've run it past you first.
But we were running out of time and I wanted to at least test the waters.
But before he would agree, he wanted to have a sit-down, face-to-face, so he can look you in the eye - and know if you were sincere.
- They'll never let Lavar in here.
No, we don't do it here.
Do it at our house.
You were granted a furlough for my wedding.
What if we moved it to tomorrow? - You could meet Lavar there.
- Tomorrow? Are you even sure you can get Silvia to agree to this? It won't be a problem.
All right.
The plan continues.
Get word to Tio, send Gnomo and his men - down to Mexicali.
- Yes, sir.
_ You should be good with that.
When you get back, we'll go have a drink, huh? _ _ Orale.
Who was that? That's Raul Rojas, Mexican State Police.
- You trust him? - Yeah, he's a friend.
And he owes me a favor.
He and his unit are some of the only honest cops in this godforsaken state.
The Metas are moving a convoy to a ranch 20 miles from the border.
It's a security detail.
And I'd bet my life that Matias is the one they're protecting.
We have to hit him en route, before they get to the ranch.
There's no telling how many gunmen the Metas'll have there.
We can ambush 'em here.
It's a perfect choke point.
Hills on one side and a cliff on the other.
Matias'll be riding in the middle vehicle.
Once they come across this bend, we take out the lead and rear vehicles.
Cut off their avenue of escape.
What if they put up a fight? Expect it.
They're trained sicarios.
All we got going for us is the element of surprise.
Let's hope so.
All right, be careful.
Watch each others' backs.
Let's go grab Matias and get the hell back to our side of the border.
Here they come.
Vee, we got eyes on the target.
Heading our way.
Two o'clock.
Got 'em.
Cassius? Just say when.
Get ready Cassius.
Vee, now.
Moving in.
Tae, get ready.
Matias! _ _ _ _ _ No! No.
_ What the hell? Where's Matias? That's not our target, Captain.
What are we gonna do? Come on, we got to go.
We got two vehicles on the way.
Come on, come on.
Cap, what are we gonna do with the girl? We're taking her with us.
She may be the only way to get Matias.
What? - How? - Just get in.
Get in! I'll explain later.
Tie her hands.
You perros are dead.
When my father finds you, he's gonna carve you up so bad, you'll wish you were never born.
Cap, what the hell's going on? - Who is this? - This is Monica Osorio.
This is El Mozo's daughter.
Okay, here's what we're gonna do I'm gonna trade El Mozo the life of his daughter - in return for Matias.
- So we're actually gonna kidnap an innocent girl? I have a feeling border patrol isn't gonna be too fond of our cargo.
We're not going to the border.
I didn't come this far to fail.
I'm not going back until I find Matias.
Neither am I.
-This wasn't the plan.
- I know the plan has changed, but we can make this work.
I won't blame any of you if you want to go back.
We ain't going nowhere.
Okay, watch your step.
- What's going on, Daniel? - Hold on, we're almost there.
All right.
What is this? These are for our audience.
All right? And this is where we'll be.
A wedding in the courtyard with eight guests? That's all we need.
My parents, your parents.
My two sisters and their husbands.
And the ho the hotel in Santa Barbara? - We'll lose the deposit.
- Aw, the hell with the deposit.
What? I-I thought you wanted to get married, babe.
I do, it It's just the way you've been acting recently.
I feel like we haven't been connecting.
Look, I I know I've been going through some stuff lately.
Okay? And I'm sorry for how I've been acting.
But I love you.
Family is the most important thing in the world to me.
Which is why I want this to happen before my father gets transferred.
What? They're moving him to another prison where he'll have no protection.
Where anything could happen to him.
And it would haunt me, Silvia, if he were to die and not get to see me marry the love of my life.
I won't let that happen, baby.
Thank you.
Do you have any idea who that is? I know exactly who that is.
Well, this explains the firestorm.
The police scanners are all lit up with gang activity.
The Metas they're all out looking for you.
And we need you to run interference until we can find Matias.
All right.
I'll do my best, okay? If anybody heads this way, I'll call.
Raul I appreciate this.
_ - Come on.
- No.
No, no.
Tell her to call her father.
_ _ Monica? Hello, Mozo.
Chapel? What are you doing with my daughter? The same thing I wasn't allowed to do to you.
Only this time there'll be no prison warden to stop the interrogation.
I already told you I had nothing to do with your daughter's death.
Even if I believed you, I want the man who does know.
I want Matias.
You're gonna give up Matias and you're gonna confess - to ordering the hit.
- I'm not going to confess to something I didn't do.
Then I am gonna mark up your daughter the same way you marked up mine.
No, no, no! This is your last chance, you son of a bitch.
Where is Matias? Cap, no! What the hell are you doing? It's wrong, all right? Have you lost your mind? You can't do this.
- There's got to be another way.
- This is the only way.
The only way they know to bargain down here is family.
We're here.
Before I tell you anything, I want to speak to Monica.
She can hear you.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ Chapel, do what you will.
But know it's a mistake.
And there will be consequences.
Have it your way.
No, no.
No, no, - no! - No, wait.
No! El Mozo.
Mozo, listen.
We just want the killer.
Okay? Let's make a trade.
Matias for your daughter.
I can't.
Matias is too valuable to my organization.
Is he? You're a businessman, right? We know you're trying to expand your operation into Los Angeles.
Don't you realize Chapel will pull every asset he has and focus on taking down no other gang except yours? Just you.
Think about it.
You know how much that's gonna cost you? Is Matias so valuable that you'll let your expansion crumble because of him? Okay.
I'll call you in an hour with the location.
He'll be there.
_ _ You don't have to do this, you know.
Your father made this choice when he murdered my daughter.
It's not me.
It's too bad he's not a better man.
I-I'm sure your daughter would feel the same way about you right now.
Cap, we got company.
Don't move! It's Matias.
Come on.
Come on.
He's unarmed.
Sam Chapel.
This is what you wanted, right? So let her go.
You are gonna confess to murdering my daughter, and you're gonna point the finger at El Mozo for ordering you - to do it.
- It won't bring her back.
I want to hear you say you killed my daughter.
Say it! I can't.
Because I didn't do it.
I will blow your head off.
No, you won't.
Lopez, don't move.
You, neither.
What is this? This is a hard lesson.
How many times have we tried to bribe you? You should've been smart like your men and taken the _ You might want to answer that.
This is Chapel.
I warned you there'd be consequences.
I'm sorry I dragged you all into this.
It's my fault.
I'm sorry.
For everything.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ You go looking for the devil you find him.
A beautiful woman.
Beautiful wife.
_ _ Salud.
How you doing, beautiful? - Amazing.
- Yeah? Mm-hmm.
Hey, uh Why don't you two get a head start, okay? I'll be right back, Mrs.
Oh, I will, Mr.
Bottom line is, the past is the past.
I'm looking forward, all right? Me and the Lords really appreciate you tipping us off to the GTF's gunrunning case, - and we're willing to repay the favor.
- Good.
Have you seen Daniel? - It's time for our toast.
- I thought I saw him go into Javier's office.
Why don't you go get him? He's missing the party.
I'll be right back.
Now that the pleasantries are out of the way, let's get down to business.
Our wing at the supermax is ready to take you in, Javier, all right? You'll be protected there; - they-they know what to do.
- I'm glad to hear that.
I look forward to working with your men on the inside.
And, uh I'm looking forward to working with you on the outside.
While I'm in prison, my son Daniel will be running Los Angelicos.
Daniel, come.
Excuse me.
What had to happen to your friend Raul was business, and was necessary.
But the thing that brings us here, and what happened to your daughter Jessica I'm truly sorry for.
Please accept my condolences for your loss.
You son of a bitch! And who is this? _ Ah She was your girl, wasn't she? You know what they say about the workplace you don't crap where you eat.
I didn't kill your daughter, Capitán.
Or your haina.
The fact of the matter is, I myself was searching for the men responsible for her murder.
The people who set us up for it.
Do you honestly expect me to believe a word that comes out of your mouth? I don't care what you think.
You'll find them in there.
The ones who killed Jessica.
You're welcome to them.
_ it makes my life easier.
But make no mistake the only reason I'm letting you live is because killing five gringo cops with all the attention on my bosses right now not good for business.
But I promise you this you ever cross us again, we won't hesitate next time.
Looks like our stuff.
Vee, check the bag.
It's all here.
Did you hear that? They're all dead.
Not this one.
That's Gnomo Pinzeta, one of Acosta's lieutenants.
- These soldiers are all Los Angelicos.
- No.
It doesn't make any sense.
Gnomo Pinzeta.
_ _ Gnomo, you tell me.
Who killed my daughter? _ _ _ _ Who killed my daughter? _ What did he say? It was him.
But he can't green-light someone.
Who gave the order? _ _ Acosta.
Which Acosta? _ _ _ _ Why her? There's something she knew, something she found.
What did she find? I don't know.
- I swear.
- What did she find? I don't know, I swear.
Now get me the doctor.
Get me the doctor.
You promised! No.
The doctor, please.
The doctor.
You promised.
You promised.
This is what we're fighting for.
This family.
This family this family No! No! No, no, no.
No, no.
No, no, no.
No! No! No! Ryan? What are you doing here? There's been a change in plans.
You're not going to see El Mozo.
What's wrong? I know what you did to Jessica.
I'm sorry, Ryan.
Don't you say that to me! Don't you ever say that to me.
She knew about you.
So you killed her.
I do what I have to do to protect you.
To protect us, to protect the family.
Stop saying that you did it for the family.
You did it for yourself! I see you clearly now, Javier.
You don't care about anybody.
Not me, not your sons.
Everything I have ever done has been for you and for my sons! No, it hasn't.
Carlos you think he was born a monster? Huh? You let him become one so he could serve your purpose.
And what about Daniel? What about keeping him safe? My son's safe.
You know, that was you and your Captain Chapel.
And you're the ones that set him up, the GTF.
Set him up and ruined him.
My son! Maybe.
But that doesn't get you off the hook for what you've done.
You're not innocent, okay? Your whole life is a lie.
Every lie I've told it was for you, Javier.
For your dream - to get this family out.
- Oh, Ryan, that was our dream to get this family out, and you know what? - It's not over.
- Yes, it is.
That dream ended the moment you decided to kill Jessica Chapel.
But I didn't kill Jessica Chapel.
You did.
I did? What did you think was gonna happen, huh, when you start messing with Chapel's daughter? You killed her.
I've wasted half my life trying to protect you.
We're done here.
You're on your own.
Whether you believe it or not, I love you, Ryan.
That's the truth.
So I'm gonna give you one last piece of advice as your father.
Hand in your badge and disappear, because my world is getting bigger in ways you don't even know, and a wave of violence is coming to this city.
It's gonna wash away anything that stands against it.
Even you, mijo.
I was never your son.
Guard! I'm sure you all have heard by now.
My father left me in control while he's in prison.
Nothing goes down without going through me first, okay? We understand? So keep your calm and carry on The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb The sun may never rise again The question ain't if, but when The sea will boil and the sky will fall The sun may never rise again A silent war has begun We're staring down a loaded gun No refuge found on solid ground This human race can't be won Don't wait to say good-bye You're running out of time - Whatever you believe - No.
It's easy to see Sam, wait.
Carter, it's Jessica.
I know I'm the last person you want to hear from right now, but you're the only person I can trust.
It's about Ryan Lopez.
Just I'll tell you about it when I can.
Just please call me back.
She left that message the day before she was murdered.
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb How well do you really know Ryan Lopez? It's easy to see The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb The whole world The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb What are you doing? I'm supposed to be in the west wing with the Lords.
You've been moved to the east wing with the Metas.
On whose orders? Detective Lopez's.
And it's about to explode The whole world The whole world The whole world And it's about to explode The whole world The whole world The whole world The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb The whole world The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb And it don't care what side you're on The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb The whole world
