Hostages s01e15 Episode Script

Endgame

Previously on Hostages You're playing a dangerous game, Colonel.
Your wife and daughter will be released the second our friend on Pennsylvania Avenue is dead.
What the hell is going on? I apologize for the inconvenience, ma'am.
Call Blair right now and tell him to release my wife and daughter.
He won't do it.
Blair doesn't trust me anymore.
No matter how this surgery plays out tomorrow, Blair is a problem for both of us.
- He is not an easy man to kill.
- That's why you need my help.
I ran a test on the President's blood.
His bone marrow is the perfect match for your wife.
She's the President's daughter, isn't she? You'll need to kill him.
And then save him.
It's the only way to get Logan to play ball, but getting the President's bone marrow doesn't mean a damn thing if we can't get it out of the hospital.
We keep this private.
For now.
Just you and me.
- How do I get the blood sample? - Well, when the surgery is over, I'll have someone bring you into the operating room, and I'll hand it to you.
You remember Dr.
Evans, my personal physician? I'll be at the President's side until the surgery's completed.
Happy to have you.
We need these guys' help.
They'll create a diversion on the day of the surgery.
I'm told you have a plan already in place.
We can take down the President of the United States.
Tell me more.
Once the President flatlines, we're going to need five minutes alone with the body.
We need to create a crisis inside the hospital, while you're operating on the President.
I left a bag.
Inside there's a smoke grenade.
Stick it inside the fire extinguisher case closest to the operating room.
Hey, Jake! What's the matter? Oh, God.
You guys aren't goin' anywhere until the President's dead.
You ready? Yes.
Things will move fast in that operating room, so you need to be ready.
I've been through this.
I know what to do.
Right.
After it's over, what's going to happen? Follow the plan.
Collect your things, then leave town.
Eventually you'll meet up with your family.
But you're certain that Brian and the kids got away? Yes.
There's no reason to keep us hostage.
The mission is over.
Ellen is not gonna kill the President.
Duncan lied to you.
I don't believe you.
How else do you explain Jake still being alive? All I know is there's something else going on.
Duncan wouldn't change the plan.
If Ellen doesn't kill the President, it puts us all at risk.
Including Duncan.
Which is why you should take off.
Disappear, before this whole thing falls apart.
Still not too late.
No.
I'm not walking away from this payday.
There is no payday.
Better hope you're wrong about that, Bri.
How will we know who the inside man is? He'll know who we are.
Honey, why don't you take that into the other room to watch.
Okay.
I demand to speak to my husband.
I know he's the one behind all of this.
You will speak with him.
In fact, that's why I'm here.
How long does he think he can keep us locked up this way? Not much longer.
I assure you.
If he delivers on his promise, you and your daughter will be free to leave by the end of the day.
What promise? That's not your concern, Mrs.
Carlyle.
All you need to do right now is get on the phone with him, and let him know you're all right.
Hello, Duncan.
They're both fine.
You have one minute as agreed.
- Duncan - Nina, are you and Sawyer okay? - Where's Sawyer? - She's fine.
She's in the next room.
What is going on? Why are these men holding us? What did you get us involved in? Everything is going to be all right.
I promise you.
How can you say that? Nina, I'm so sorry.
I just need you to be strong a little longer.
All right? Let me talk to Sawyer.
You can talk to them both after our business is concluded.
And then you can all live happily ever after.
You don't really think that son of a bitch intends to let them go, do you? No.
But we're going to convince him.
What time will Blair arrive at the event? About an hour or so.
What type of security will he have around him? He only has one personal security officer, an ex-Special Ops soldier named Wilson.
You'll need to distract him.
Okay.
I wish we didn't have to do this.
He's holding my wife and daughter hostage, you'll excuse me if I don't show much sympathy for him.
This is personal for you.
Like President Kincaid is for me.
I thought it was political.
For Blair.
I believe the President's death is a matter of justice.
Don't you agree? Absolutely.
I'm just concerned about the proximity to this rib here, can you pull up another image? Madam First Lady.
The President just went into pre-op.
Actually I would like to speak with you.
Alone.
I've done some further reading, Dr.
Sanders.
The genetic marker for dementia that you claimed you found in my husband's blood.
One lab in the country runs the test for that, and his blood wasn't sent there.
Which means you've been lying.
You have exactly one minute to explain yourself, before I open that door and have Secret Service arrest you.
- Yes? - Everything all set? Yes, everything's in motion.
We're with the blue team.
Glad you could make it.
Clear the south hall of civilian personnel.
- You two are on the stairwell.
- Copy that, sir.
Nervous? Why? Just another day at work.
See you in there.
Almost there, sir.
This way.
Mr.
President, you remember your anesthesiologist, Dr.
Carp.
He's currently administering a general anesthetic, so you may feel some drowsiness, numbness, that's totally normal.
Now I want you to count backwards from 100 for me.
One hundred, 99, 98, 97, 96 Vanessa.
It's your sister.
Uh, I just found out something important.
It's essential that we speak as soon as possible.
Call me.
Hmm.
Yes.
We're in position.
Excuse me? Do you work for that guy? - Who is he? - Why? I saw something weird earlier and I don't know who to report it to.
There was a guy taking video of him.
And I know we're not supposed to take pictures in here.
And the guy hid his camera as soon as I got close.
Who was the guy? It was one of the waiters, but I've never seen him at work before.
- Can you point him out to me? - Yeah.
Retractor.
Scalpel.
Vitals are stable.
Thank you.
Forceps, please.
Nicely done, Dr.
Sanders.
Very clean.
Just a little bit more and we'll have all of it.
Where are we going? Colonel.
Excuse me.
I know that you think I undermined you with the Vice-President, but you're wrong.
This is all a misunderstanding.
Really? He misinterpreted my offer to advise him, but I've set the record straight.
I told him flat out that I don't want the job, and that you are the candidate I wanted to put forward.
You really expect me to believe you? No, don't take it from me.
Talk to the Vice-President yourself.
He wants to sit down with you before he gives his speech.
Now? I suggested that you might have some policy ideas for him.
And, um Who better to be sitting next to in the next hour when the news comes in.
I don't know what your game is.
But I'm willing to play along.
There's a shortcut through the kitchen.
I want my wife and daughter back.
Duncan.
I'm sorry.
You are making a mistake.
We're not enemies.
I want the President dead because he is a danger to our country.
I have no reason to hurt your family and I will release them.
As soon as the job is complete.
Well, I don't feel like waiting.
Take out your phone, and make the call.
Otherwise, I'll put a bullet in your head.
More retraction, please.
What is that? We got a bleeder.
Clamp.
You applied too much retraction, nurse.
Looks like he's ruptured an artery.
I don't know what happened.
Dr.
Sanders, do something.
He could bleed out.
Get some suction in here.
Tachi to 120.
How's his blood pressure? 110 over 80.
That's the signal.
Keep the suction in there.
What the hell was that? How's his blood pressure? 90 over 60.
- IV wide open.
- Give me the air check.
Yes, sir.
Agent Logan.
Where is that smoke coming from? What are you doing? I got this.
Keep your eyes on the President.
I can't locate the bleeder.
Madam First Lady, come with me.
This way.
Let's go.
Let's go.
We have a biochem agent.
Repeat.
We have detected a biochem attack.
Shut down hospital power immediately.
I can't see a thing as it is.
What are you going to do? He's losing pressure.
I need to locate the bleeder.
Get the gauze in there.
Keep the suction in.
- Shut down the power.
- 90 over 60.
Glow sticks, mark the exits.
Automatic weapons, let's go.
Glow sticks.
Backup generator's on.
Agent Logan.
What's happening? Keep the gauze in there.
Apply some pressure.
- 110 over 80.
- Okay, pull this down.
We need to move the President.
We can't.
The President is bleeding out.
- He could die.
- Do it.
I'm not going to ask you again, move him! Let's go.
- Yeah.
- It's me.
I got them.
They're safe.
This is WUSA reporting live with breaking news from Maryland College Hospital, where President Kincaid is currently undergoing surgery.
Okay, bag him.
Bag him.
Come on.
Come on.
Let's go.
Everyone, let's go.
- Cover both doors.
- Sir.
Ricky, frequency alpha.
What's frequency alpha? We're on frequency alpha, go ahead.
We've been compromised.
Hostiles are disguised as agents.
We are changing security protocol.
New identify password is "kingmaker.
" Copy that.
New identify password "kingmaker.
" Listen up, new identify password is "kingmaker.
" Get the exits.
Let's go.
You two on the south exit, let's go.
He's crashing.
- Get his pressure up.
- Get him out of here, now! Identify yourselves.
What's the password? Password? Password.
What is the password? Move it.
Move it, come on! They're getting close.
Lock those doors.
What's the password? What password? Everyone out this way, go.
- Come on, let's go.
I got it.
- Go.
Go.
Go now.
Get him back in.
Get him back in here.
Protect these doors at all costs.
Let nobody in this room, you understand? We're alone.
Now make sure he's dead.
We're alone.
Now make sure he's dead.
Don't you die on me.
Okay.
Okay.
You can do this.
An unknown number of terrorists have attacked the hospital where President Kincaid is undergoing surgery.
Sounds to me like it's going down.
It's all part of a diversion to get the bone marrow.
The status of the President is not yet known, but we are hearing reports that the attack occurred on the same floor as the President's operating room and that biochemical agents may be involved.
There has been no direct contact with the President's security detail since the shooting started.
So, can I go now? Your wife and daughter are safe.
We're not finished.
I hold no grudge about the back and forth between us.
You have no reason to hold a grudge against me.
Except for the fact that you planned to eliminate me all along.
That is not true.
Really? Then why did you pay her to plant bombs underneath our vehicles? Tell me that.
I switched sides.
I'm sorry.
You picked the wrong side.
We're not going to spend the rest of our lives, looking over our shoulders.
I'm afraid you've left me with no choice, Colonel.
- Hello.
- I just heard the news on the radio, from the hospital.
Is this all part of your plan? Is the President going to die because of me? No.
I don't believe you.
That's not going to happen.
Promise me.
I want to hear you say it.
Promise me that nobody else dies by your hand.
I promise.
Can't see a thing Gotcha.
You don't have to do this.
There is an alternative.
We make a video tape.
Together.
A statement that explains what we have done, and implicates both of us.
If anything happens to either one of us, release the tape.
You can't trust him.
We don't need to trust each other.
That's the point.
The tape is the guarantee that neither one of us will ever speak or come after the other one.
There's been enough killing.
Get him out of here and let's do this.
All right, move.
Move out of the way.
It's clear! Blue team, cover that room.
Entry team, get this room open! Check the President.
The President is stable.
You saved him.
Air is clear.
No sign of biochem agents.
Must've been a faulty sensor.
Turn the power back on.
Sir.
Let me get you.
What happened to Agent Logan? Oh, he just passed out.
Must've been the smoke.
Agent Logan, the President's safe.
He's gonna be fine.
Come on, sir.
Let's get you checked out.
- Is he all right? - He's stable.
Dr.
Sanders, I want to thank you.
What you did today was nothing short of heroic.
We are just getting reports that President Kincaid has survived the attack on the hospital.
He was barricaded in the operating room during the siege.
- And President Kincaid is expected - Shut it off.
All we want is our lives back.
Duncan agreed to set you free.
That was the deal he made with Ellen? Was it? Yeah.
Start the car.
We're going for a ride.
Dr.
Sanders? Dr.
Sanders, wait.
The First Lady wanted you to have this.
As a token of her gratitude.
I have it.
I have the bone marrow.
I'm taking it to Nina now.
I can't believe you pulled it off, Ellen.
Thank you.
It's over now.
I'll meet you at Burton's.
It'll be over for me when I'm with my kids.
Soon.
Let's just talk about this.
Stop here.
Get down on your knees.
Close your eyes.
- Why are you doing this? - Do as you're told! Hey, it's me.
I caught Brian and Morgan trying to escape.
Gonna bring 'em by the house, finish this.
- This It Archer, leave a message.
- Archer, hey.
It's me, Duncan.
Listen to me.
Don't do anything to the family until I get there, you hear me? Wait for me.
I'm on my way.
Archer.
- Archer! - Hey, D.
Where are Brian and Morgan? Where's my money? Things didn't go as planned.
Really? I thought this was your plan.
- What are you talking about? No.
- Lie to an old friend, recruit him for a payday you never intend to collect.
- Then hang him out to dry.
- It's not like that.
I I never meant for things to go down this way.
I planned to go through with it to the very end, but when Ellen refused, I had to make a choice.
And you chose to betray me.
I'll make it up to you.
I swear.
You should've told me the truth, D.
I'm sorry.
All I ever gave you was my loyalty.
I'm sorry.
Dr.
Sanders.
Ellen.
- Is that it? - Yeah.
So just bring it to the hospital and give it to your doctors, and when they test it, they'll find it's a near-perfect match.
You can beat this disease, Nina.
I owe you an apology.
What my husband did to you and to your family.
You don't owe me an apology.
You didn't ask for any of this.
What he did was wrong.
And I don't know if I can accept this.
You need to do what's right for you.
Duncan.
What happened? Are you all right? Where are Nina and Sawyer? Upstairs.
Listen, we don't have much time.
Here's some cash and a new passport.
You should get out of the country tonight.
- Burton, I'm not running.
- What? Give us a minute.
Oh, my God.
You need to see a doctor.
I am.
How bad is it? You'll survive.
Blair is dead.
I don't think anybody's going to be looking for you.
So - This is it.
- Yeah.
This is it.
We made it.
No, you made it.
That's the difference between us.
You got through this entire thing without ever losing yourself.
I wish I could say the same.
Goodbye, Ellen.
How're you feeling, Paul? A little weak, but happy to be alive.
We'll see about that.
- Nina - Don't.
Please, Duncan.
Just don't.
I'm so sorry.
I really There is no justification for what you did.
I understand.
But I'm going back to the hospital tomorrow with the bone marrow.
I want to live.
- Thank you.
- I'm not doing it for you.
I'm not even doing it for me.
I just couldn't face the idea of telling Sawyer that you weren't coming home.
I couldn't do it.
She thinks you walk on water.
What am I supposed to tell her, Duncan? The truth.
I love you.
- Daddy! - Hey, sweetheart.
What happened to your eye? Oh, it's nothing.
Just Just got into a little accident.
I want to tell you something.
- Daddy has to go away.
- For how long? It might be a while.
But what about my birthday? You have to be back for my birthday.
Hey.
I already got you a present.
It's Mommy coming back.
Thank you, Daddy.
I love you.
I love you, too.
More than anything.
Dr.
Sanders told me what happened with you and Kate Renner.
Kate Renner? How could she know about It was decades ago.
Burton Delaney.
- Mary, you couldn't possibly believe - Oh, but I do.
Suddenly, it's all clear to me.
Your cheating, your ambition I thought you had limits, but I was wrong.
You had Peter killed, didn't you? My own brother.
Who put that idea in your head? I did.
I've defended you for too long.
But not anymore.
You're going to have to pay for your crimes, Paul.
Hey.
You going somewhere? What are you doing here? Could I catch a ride? You don't even know where I'm going.
Where are you going? I'm going to see my son.
Then I guess I'll keep moving after that.
Works for me.
You're a good person, Kramer.
A lot better than me.
I'm not sure we belong together.
Well, there's only one way to find out.
- You're crazy, you know that? - Yeah.
- We should both go in.
- No.
This is on me.
Besides, I need you to look after Nina and Sawyer.
- She won't forgive me.
- She will.
In time.
- But even if she doesn't - It's still my job to look after them.
I know.
What are you doing back here? I thought you were gone.
Archer left us at a warehouse and we hitched a ride to the nearest bus station.
Oh! We couldn't leave without you.
We wanted to go as a family.
I don't expect anything.
Me either.
Sounds like a plan.
My name is Duncan Carlisle.
I'm here to surrender.
