Highlander: The Raven s01e14 Episode Script

The Rogue

How long do we have to wait out here? Just wait a minute.
In my work, being seen and being heard is number one.
Debra! Clear! Debra-- Next time, stay out of my damn light.
Excuse me? I told you-- right side for camera, left side for security.
You guys rookies or what? Hey, who feels like pizza? Am I talking to you? You know, you would feel a lot better if you had something to eat.
I might feel better if the people protecting me weren't retarded.
Look, Debra, we're your bodyguards.
If we got in your way, we're just doing our jobs.
No, your job is to remain invisible.
Our job is to keep you alive.
Hey, if you're that unhappy, take it up with Myers.
- Oh, I'll do that.
- Miss Dow, no windows.
- I want her out of here! -Fine.
Now, step back.
Consider her gone.
She is immortal.
A thousand years old and she cannot die.
A creature of legend like the raven, a thief who stole the sun and the moon.
They sent a warrior to bring her back.
He found her.
Together, they brought back light to the world.
I was a cop.
To me she was just a thief, another day on the job.
But she wasn't-- She changed my life, changed everything.
And both of us knew from that moment on, nothing would ever be the same.
Cops found a 7.
5mm shell casing on the roof across the street.
Sounds like an FR-F2 to me.
Sniper's dream.
2800 feet per second.
Professional hit.
Wanna bet they bored out the muzzle? So ballistics come up with squat.
Exactly.
Ah! Watch it, Popeye.
Myers, could I please talk to you? What's it now, Amanda? I think we should have them use the service elevator next time.
Not today.
I'm not in the mood, all right? Darling, they're scuffing my floors.
I'm really sorry.
Really.
What is wrong with you? You act like someone died.
Congratulations.
I'm sorry.
Rachael and Nestor were guarding Debra Dow.
Somebody's trying to kill her.
Debra Dow, the actress.
Is she okay? They killed Jim Nestor instead.
I still have to be in Washington in three days' time.
I'm on it.
Just stick to her like glue, will ya? Debra Dow, you know, she's the ultimate slasher chick.
The Terror, uh,Deathwatch.
This could be kind of fun.
Sorry, Amanda.
I think this one's for Nick.
As in, "Amanda, we don't need you.
Please go away"? It's the client.
She plays a lot better with boys than with girls.
How tragic.
All right, well, um, have fun.
I think you hurt her feelings.
This whole thing is my fault.
She comes to me with this death threat.
Of course, I don't believe her.
I'm still waiting for the part where it's your fault.
I told Jim that I thought it smelled like a publicity stunt.
He gets careless, lets his guard down-- Yeah, I won't.
If this guy's a pro, he's not gonna stop.
What are you saying? What I'm saying is-- Come on.
Jim was a close friend.
If you get a clean shot, just-- Hey, how do I make this clear to you? I'm here to save a life, Bert.
All I mean is, whatever it takes.
Okay? Hey, Rachael, um, listen, we're really sorry about your partner.
Yeah, thanks.
Maybe I'm cursed.
Second time in four years I've lost a partner.
I was just talking to, uh, Jim's wife.
I'm going over to spend some time with her.
How's she doin'? She's a mess.
Well, tell her, anything she needs.
And tell her we'll get the guy.
Hey, Rachael.
Look, Nick, let's just cut to the chase.
You're gonna tell me it's not my fault.
And there was nothing you could've done and that you're not to blame, but you're probably gonna go over all the incidences that happened that day-- everything you did, you said.
But that's not gonna make any difference, is it? Thanks for trying.
Okay, that's enough.
- You shouldn't be here.
- What? I said, you shouldn't be here.
Well, fine.
Your place or mine? - It isn't safe.
- Yeah, well, then you make it safe.
It's your job.
Mine is to be seen.
Is this that important to you? This ad is gonna be seen in 70 countries.
Prime time.
Haven't had that in a while, so you tell me.
- Is this guy bothering you? - Oh, please.
Never enough.
I need to get through.
J.
C.
Squires.
J.
C.
Squires.
Hello.
Darling, let me through.
Thank you.
Squires.
Should I have heard of you? I don't think so, darling.
I'm an agent.
Who do you represent? Oh, everyone who's anyone.
Such as? Never mind.
Debra, darling.
- Do I know you? - J.
C.
Squires, I.
C.
T.
, Paris office.
I'm here to take your career out of the toilet, dear.
Excuse me? Look, keep your attitude or keep your career.
This train is leaving in 30 seconds.
Wait just one second.
Hello? No, no, no, no, no.
I told you-- nothing less than a cover.
I'm sorry, but we already have a better offer fromPeople.
Right.
Good.
Ciao.
Sorry about that.
Excuse us.
Uh-- Excuse me.
Can I see that card for a moment? Sure.
Just what the hell do you think you're doing? I'm undercover.
Oh, really? You asked for my help, I'm gonna give you my help.
Oh, no.
Wait a minute.
I never asked for your help.
Exactly.
Where? Get down! You all right? Stay down! Are you okay? I'm fine.
Do you know him? Yeah, I killed him.
So I told him to apologize.
When he didn't, I dumped a bowl of chocolate mousse on his head.
You didn't! Yes, I did.
So what happened? The maîître d' bought me a bottle of champagne.
This is good, driver.
Okay.
Okay.
Ahh.
Milady.
You owe me.
Oh, it's amazing what a little guilt can do.
Just because you broke four of our first eight dates.
Mm-mmm.
Three.
Okay, maybe four, but who's counting? Obviously, I am.
Yes, obviously.
Cops and doctors are always on call.
No beeper.
And for that-- What? you will be rewarded.
Mmm.
- Hold that thought.
- Don't you dare! Come on.
Take her back to the hotel.
I'll be right there, okay? Thank you.
If you're not back in half an hour, I won't be there! Okay! I want you to see this comin'! Let's see who he is.
- Show me.
- He's a cop.
No.
- But he's a witness.
- He saved my life.
It's not your ass on the line.
He's a loose end.
Let me worry about that.
Just go call the cleaner.
Come on.
Go.
Oh! - Do you smoke? - No.
That was quite a nasty fall you took there.
You all right? Yeah, I'll be sure to take care next time.
What the hell's going on? So much for small talk, huh? All right.
N.
S.
A.
-- and I have a problem.
I'm very impressed.
The problem's you.
I need to know you'll be discreet.
You mean like nothing happened here tonight? - Exactly.
- Wrong.
Well, you should know that accusations without evidence are worthless.
- There's a body.
- Oh, really? Where? I can identify you.
I'm having dinner with four friends in Philadelphia as we speak.
Don't look at me.
I wanted to kill you.
Relax, will ya? All right, here's the deal, Detective Wolfe.
The body you thought you saw, it might've been a rogue agent.
Except there's no way to be sure because there's no record he was ever here.
And the body-- if there was one-- would be buried in Jersey by now anyway, along with half the sons of the five families, hmm? Here.
If this becomes part of the 6:00 news, my friend here and I will be, um, reluctant witnesses against you.
After all, we did see you kill that guy.
Maybe we'll see each other again.
You never know.
New York's a small town.
One more thing.
What would you do if you found a bad cop? I wouldn't kill him.
I didn't.
Bye.
Let's go.
So three months later I'm working undercover, and I bump into Myers, and he actually helps me solve the case.
Sounds like the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
Yeah.
Brennan was immortal.
Maybe, or maybe he became one when you killed him.
Otherwise, he's been dead for so long, why's he trying to kill Debra? Maybe he wasn't.
Maybe it was Myers.
Nestor was there that night in New York, and now he's in the morgue.
Ah.
What happened? Oh, he got away.
Did you get a look at his face? Medium height, medium build, brown hair.
Your powers of observation are stunning.
How about his face? Did you see it? No, I said.
What, no face? Well, how come your shirt is torn? I tripped.
What about you, Amanda? I definitely agree with Nick.
I think his hair was brown.
That's all you can give me? Amanda, please.
What, do you want me to make something up? Hey, that's all there was.
Mmm.
Yoo-hoo! Debra, your career's calling.
How the hell did you get in here? Where's my star? Shh! She's out cold.
She took a sedative.
And you tucked her in? That must've been a wonderful event.
She thinks someone's trying to kill her.
Who wouldn't, darling? After 30 minutes, I'd be selling tickets myself.
She's just a scared kid.
She's acting out.
She's a piranha.
She makes agents look like Mother Teresa.
Besides, you and I both know that no one's after her, so let's just go.
If we leave, Myers will get suspicious.
Now, do you wanna be the one to tell him about Immortals? You got a point.
Mmm.
Okay.
See you later.
Where the hell are you going? Someone has to watch him.
I'll do it.
Would you put the testosterone away? There's a guy out there who's invisible.
You're never gonna see him, and I can sense him a block away.
Who the hell are you trying to protect? I get to choose? Ciao.
Been a long time, partner.
- Frank? - In the flesh.
But it can't be.
What's going on? It's not safe here.
Can we go back to your apartment? It's all right, Rachael.
Don't be afraid.
I'm not a ghost.
You moved.
It took me a long time to find you.
Yeah, well, it's been four years, Frank, and I thought you were dead.
I had to stay dead.
There was nothing else I could do after Myers set me up.
Myers? He said you were killed when the Russian deal went bad.
Of course he did.
He and a guy named Wolfe put a bullet in me.
Nick Wolfe? They still think I'm dead.
I came to in a shallow grave.
I could hardly breathe.
I dug my way out.
Yeah, but all this time.
I had to stay hidden.
They'd have finished the job, maybe killed you too.
Four years, and you couldn't pick up a damn phone? I was your partner, Frank.
You were more than that.
I missed you.
Yeah, well, we certainly had our moment.
But it's not like we were married.
I thought you'd be pleased to see me.
I am.
It just doesn't seem possible.
Myers.
He's a damn liar.
I was making the delivery-- three million in cash.
They set me up, shot me, took the money.
That's what went down.
Rachael, I'm alive.
Doesn't that prove he's lying? Didn't he tell you he saw me die? Yes, yes, he did, but I-- How do you think he got the money to go private-- to set up this organization of his? It was blood money-- myblood.
Rachael, we were together for five years.
We always took care of each other.
How many times did I save your life? All right, Frank.
How can I help you? I don't want to be dead anymore.
Oh.
Wolfe and Myers.
No, you can't.
It's them or me.
Well, you can leave me out of this.
Okay, Rach.
Whatever you say.
All right.
What is this? What? Why are you following me around? I don't know.
I guess we're partners now, and we don't spend that much time together.
I figured we should get to know each other.
Why do you think we never spend much time together? I'm not sure.
I think we should talk about it.
Well, this is just a wild guess, but I always had the feeling you don't like me much.
You thought-- You really thought that? Mm-hmm.
Well, then you have to buy.
Buy what? Dinner.
I'm famished.
I'm starving.
Take me to dinner.
Well, uh, it's been a long day, and we all have to eat, don't we? You need your protein.
I know the best little Franco-Japanese place.
Franco-Japanese? What's that? Have you ever had Franco-Japanese? Sushi with cream sauce? Or we could go home, and I could order out.
Does Nick know about this? Maybe.
Maybe not.
Look at this.
Look at Debra.
She's all over the paper.
That's exactly the publicity we need, huh? Stupid.
Look.
Amanda? I used to be a gum chewer in the old days.
Part of a strategic assault on a nicotine addiction.
Now I say, "What the hell.
" Well, you know, I'd stick with the gum, because you cannot go wrong with fresh breath.
You're a very beautiful woman.
You're a very sloppy spy.
It was easier tracking people before I became an Immortal.
No radar.
You've been a very naughty boy, Mr.
Brennan.
Please, call me Frank.
Okay, Frank.
Why are you walking around shooting people? No fair.
You haven't told me your name yet.
I prefer it that way.
Any reason you decided to duck into this place? Holy ground, isn't it? Do I frighten you? That's not the word I'd use.
Then maybe we should take this outside.
I don't think so.
I'm new to this Immortal stuff.
I'm into guns, not swords.
Besides, my fight isn't with you.
Not yet, anyway.
That's where you're wrong, Frankie boy.
You go after one of my friends, I get my feathers all ruffled.
Myers had me killed four years ago.
I'm just out to even the score.
Why don't you tell me about it? We were supposed to deliver three million dollars to a Russian general in exchange for a nuclear warhead that was about to be dumped on the black market.
But you decided to keep the money yourself.
The bastard went Boy Scout on me.
Let me give you a piece of advice.
You're an Immortal now.
Why don't you drop the resentment and get on with your new life? Thanks for the tip, but I don't think I can do that.
Oh, sure you can.
Just hop on a flight, come back in another century or two, and I'll let you live.
Otherwise, you'll have to go through me.
- If you insist.
-Amanda, you in here? -Hey.
Who were you talking to? Who do you think? I could've sworn I heard voices.
Voices? Uh, a choir of angels, perhaps? Come on.
Come on.
It's okay.
It's okay.
It was a nightmare.
I know what it was.
You're all right.
Oh, please don't play shrink with me.
Someone tried to kill me.
I know.
But I'm here, and you're safe while I'm here, okay? Oh, and it's-- it's that simple? - Yes, it's that simple.
- And why should I believe you? Because it's the truth, Debra.
I promise.
You didn't see the look in his eyes.
And then the light just-- - He was doing his job.
- But he's dead.
I know.
It's like there's a movie and it's just in my head, and I keep seeing him again and again.
It's okay.
It's over.
It's over.
Oh, you hate me.
I don't hate you.
Well, you're going to.
I made it up.
I know.
You know, when I was 20, I was a star.
I did all the talk shows, I was on the cover of everything.
The phone never stopped.
And now I am 30, and I am a nobody.
Who says? Oh, please.
Everybody.
Who's everybody? Everybody doesn't know anything.
You know who you are.
What I know is acting.
It's-- It's who I am.
I thought being a cop was who I was.
It wasn't.
It cost me my marriage, my partner.
And it almost cost me my life.
But it wasn't who I was.
It's just what I did, not who I am.
What if you don't know who you are? You know.
You know.
I'll be right back.
Okay.
There-- There's something I have to know.
What are you doing here? Did you shoot Frank Brennan? If it's J.
C.
Squires, you wanna tell her I'll be right out? Stay in the room.
I'll be right back.
Come here.
Where is he? You've seen him? Answer the question, Nick.
Where is he? You did! You did it, you son of a bitch! - It's just like Frank said.
-Relax.
Would I lie to you, partner? Thanks for leading me to him.
Frank! I didn't know.
I-I swear.
- Don't do this, Frank! - Good-bye, Wolfe.
Frank.
Drop the gun, or I snap his neck! Let's not lose our heads.
What are you gonna do, Wolfe? - Shoot me over and over again? -I got plenty of bullets.
- So long, Wolfe.
- No! Oh, my God! Go home.
Go on.
Go home.
But how-- I'll call you later.
I'll be waiting.
You lied to me! I never lied to you.
You said I was safe! You are.
Oh, please.
No, you said, "No one will hurt you.
" "Trust me," you said! You're not in danger.
You never were.
Oh, please.
And what does he want? Does he want an autograph? I have to go.
No-- Go? Go? You're-- What about me? No one is trying to kill you.
You know what? You are lying.
You just don't care and you're not gonna leave! They were after someone else.
I have to help them.
You know what? You're lying! You just don't care! You-You have to stay here! Debra, they're after someone else.
I have to helpthem.
No, you stay right here! I paid good money for you! Your money's wasted.
Yeah, well, go! Get out! Just get out! What the hell do you care if I get murdered? - Where do you think you're goin'? - We need to talk.
You're damn right we need to talk.
I just convinced the cops upstairs into buying your ridiculous story.
So? So, look at me.
Am I smiling? What the hell happened here tonight? Why the hell don't you believe me? You know what, Nick? You make me feel like a tiny little mushroom.
You keep me in the dark and you feed me horse manure.
That's what you do! I told you what happened! All right.
Just for me to get this straight.
You heard a noise in the hall.
You opened the door to investigate.
That's when some guy tries to rob you, only room service steps in, and the thief gets away.
Is that correct? See? You listened.
Okay.
I'm really happy we straightened that one out.
Thanks.
Just one more thing.
What do you mean, fired? Myers fired you? Firedus.
We'reoff the assignment.
He can't do that.
I don't work for him.
I've never been fired in my whole life.
That's because you've never had a real job.
What's wrong with you? Nothing.
Okay.
That was a really crappy thing you pulled.
What? Pretending to be her agent, setting her up like that.
This is what you're upset about? She's upset.
Oh, look, she's an actress.
She manipulates people for a living.
I've got other things to worry about.
But none so entertaining as this.
One: Myers knew I was lying.
What did she say to you? Two: Rachael saw Brennan go off the roof, then get up and walk away.
How are you gonna explain that? How amIgonna explain that? Hello, Rachael.
You set me up.
I had to find Wolfe.
How the hell did you jump off a 10-story building and walk away? I clipped a fire escape on my way down.
It broke my fall.
Who the hell do you think you're talking to, Frank? My partner.
- You shouldn't be alive.
- But I am.
And you're not even hurt.
Where are your bruises? Take it easy, Rach.
Don't you trust me? Frank, you were dead.
Then you weren't.
Then you were.
What the hell's going on? They took away my life.
I want it back.
All of it.
Get out! - You wouldn't shoot me, partner.
- Try me, Frank.
You're just like them.
So just follow my lead.
I've done this kind of thing before.
All right, let's hear it.
I'm not gonna know till I get there what I'm gonna say.
That's a hell of a plan.
Look, lying is best when it's spontaneous.
Besides, I do some of my best work when I'm under pressure.
You've been doing it for 1,200 years.
You're good at it.
I need to speak to Myers.
- What are you? - I'm an Immortal, baby.
You're not.
He's here.
Stop jerkin' me around, Nick.
Who killed Rachael? She was dead when we got here.
What are you two guys actually doin' here? Why are you here? Well, I think we should tell him, Nick.
Tell me what? Go ahead.
No, by all means, you tell him.
Tell me what? Nick has this little theory that the person who was aiming at Debra and missed was actually trying to kill Nestor.
Right.
Exactly, and I think you're next.
You gotta do better than that.
Rachael was not within 10 miles of Debra.
It doesn't make any sense.
If they're after me, why are they killin' my people? Huh? I thought you were going to Washington.
Aren't you leaving for Washington? Washington can wait.
What in hell is going on? You go to Washington.
Amanda and I can handle this.
Why do I get the feeling you guys are trying to get rid of me? Oh! Why would you think that? No.
If they're coming after your people-- They're gonna come after you.
Let 'em come.
I'm not goin' anywhere until I finish this guy off.
I don't think we can stop him from going after Brennan.
You might as well hang a sign on his neck that says, "Shoot me.
" What are we gonna do? Stick to him like glue.
Don't let him out of your sight.
He's not gonna like that.
He's gonna like being dead even less.
What if, um-- What if-- How much do you trust him? Forget it.
Look, it's a matter of time before Brennan is gonna be back.
We can't babysit him for a whole decade.
We can't hold his hand all the time.
We're not gonna tell him about Brennan.
We're not gonna tell him about immortality.
It's his life.
I know.
And I like Myers.
I trust him with my life.
I just don't trust him with yours.
Nick.
Debra, what are you doing here? I came to say good-bye.
Scorsese's in London.
He wants to meet with me.
I think that's terrific.
I guess there's no such thing as bad publicity.
The thing is, uh, the meeting's not till Monday.
Um-- I-I'm sorry.
I-I gotta go.
- It's too bad.
- My loss.
Some other time.
What? Say again.
That's impossible.
Because the guy's dead, that's why.
Sure, keep me informed.
Yeah, thanks.
Bye.
That was the detective investigating Rachael's murder.
They found a partial thumbprint that matches up with Frank Brennan's.
So? I mean, they were partners.
I'm sure he showed up once or twice.
- She moved right after he died.
- Maybe she kept the same furniture.
The print was lifted from a living room window.
Well, you can't trust partials.
Obviously, somebody's out to lunch.
Lunch.
Lunch.
You know what? I am famished.
You just had breakfast.
It was just an apple.
You know, I'm a growing girl.
Somehow, we've gotta get this guy out in the open.
So when he's shooting at me, you're shooting at him.
You know what? That's a good plan.
We'll-- I'll look at that.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Where are you going now? Where did Wolfe go? Towards the railroad.
Hello again.
Amanda, isn't it? You're still here.
Beautiful and smart.
If only we'd met under different circumstances.
- But we're never gonna get along, are we? - Not in this lifetime.
I've never taken a woman's head before.
You'll have to earn it.
That wasn't very nice.
- You should've left it alone.
- Fine.
What say I get on an airplane and disappear again? - A little late for that.
- You got that right.
You lose.
What can I say? I heard a gunshot.
You showed up like a bat out of hell, and I just reacted.
Quick reflexes.
Look, I saw a body.
Hey, I didn't get a name.
Did you get a name? Brown hair.
That's all I saw.
Wait.
Brown hair? Are you gonna tell me who it was? Please? You know what? Get on a plane.
Go home.
It's over.
Yeah.
What in hell happened to that body? Body? What body? Accusations without evidence are just worthless.
Mmm.
Thanks for sharing.
Don't mention it.
Bon voyage.
Now, don't you kiss me.
Gotta go, guys.
Pleasure as always.
Bye-bye.
You know, one thing we need to get straight if we're going to live under the same roof-- Here it comes.
you cannot interfere with the fights.
Hey, you cheated.
It doesn't matter.
It matters to me.
Look, I just wish that for once when we got in an argument, you would say that you were wrong and that you're sorry.
I'm never wrong.
I have a club to open.
Thank you so much for saving my life.
Amanda.
What? I didn't know you knew Martin Scorsese.
Well, there's a lot about me you don't know.
