Hudson and Rex (2019) s04e16 Episode Script

Dog Days Are Over

Dispatch, K-9 230 on the scene at 557 Dundee.
We've entered the premises.
Rebel.
You're working.
SJPD! Identify yourself! Come on! You know we saw you outside! It's not a big deal! All we have to talk about is a broken lock.
How does that sound to you? Rebel! Rebel.
K-9 230! Officer down! I need backup! This is an emergency! Rebel! You're going to be okay! Rebel! Rebel! - Officer Power.
- Detective Hudson.
Can you tell me what happened here? - I need to go with Rebel.
- Yeah? Severe concussion.
Unequal pupils.
Confusion and a loss of consciousness.
We need to get to get her assessed for a traumatic brain injury.
I'm fine! I'm okay! She was bleeding.
Yeah, I think you should have the paramedics take a look at you.
Oh.
I'll see that she's taken care of.
Detective, we have to get her to a hospital.
- I was with her.
- Come on.
This way.
Hey.
Uh, hey.
Is Rebel going to survive? Her injuries are significant.
Multiple stab wounds to the chest and abdomen.
I've been thinking Rebel would have fought back.
I'm going to follow them to the emergency clinic, see if I can check her for any trace evidence.
This is just like attacking any police officer.
Whoever did this is violent and extremely dangerous.
I wouldn't argue that.
Oh, yeah.
I've been managing this place for three years.
There's been some break-ins lately.
Small thefts.
But nothing like this.
No violence.
Well, I saw that your building has an alarm system and closed circuit television but the 911 call we received wasn't triggered by your alarm.
Yes, um, the system has been malfunctioning lately.
I was at home this morning.
I should have gotten an alert on my phone.
Would you mind showing me your security footage? Of course.
911 has reports of a prowler at 7:00.
Did you notice anything missing? It's going to take us some time to do a full inventory.
Hmm.
It looks like the camera at the north side door was turned off.
- Is that unusual? - Yes.
I must have forgotten to reset it before I left for the day yesterday.
Dr.
Loughlin, dial pediatrics.
Dr.
Loughlin, dial pediatrics.
You're Rex.
The Major Crimes K-9 detective.
Yeah, that's him.
I think Rex senses you miss your partner.
I thought he was Rebel for a second.
I just got off the phone with a colleague at the vet clinic.
Rebel's in surgery.
Had a blood transfusion but she's hanging in there.
I don't know how this happened.
Yeah.
That must be your worst nightmare.
How's your injury? They did a CT scan.
I told them I feel better.
But they want to hold me for 48 hours for observation.
Yeah.
You had the paramedic pretty worried.
Listen, can you tell me what happened prior to the attack? Yeah.
Um, we were just following an intruder at the back of the warehouse and Rebel was right next to me.
There are folks in that area who might need to steal.
Check the encampment by the underpass.
Talk to Dawn Kingston.
She knows everybody there.
- Okay.
- There's people who are struggling and need a hand, you know? I feel for them.
I wouldn't have given that guy a hard time.
He didn't have to hurt Rebel.
Rex and our whole team, we're on this.
Detective, could you bring this to Rebel for me? It might help her relax if she could smell something of mine.
Yeah, of course.
Let's go, pal.
Come on.
Wait.
You know, Rebel and I go out every day.
And I know that there's always a chance that something can go wrong.
I But Come on, pal.
We've got work to do.
Hey, pal.
Come here.
Hey.
Nurse Jensen to second floor nursing station.
The tip lines are going absolutely wild.
Everyone's upset that a K-9 was attacked.
- They want to help.
- Anything useful? No, not yet but I'll keep monitoring the calls.
Hey, Sarah.
You were at the veterinary hospital.
I mean, is Rebel going to be okay? It's hard to say.
I mean, they're working on repairing the internal injuries but her lung was punctured and there's significant damage to her liver.
Who would do something like this? How's Charlie? I mean, the good news is Rebel fought back.
I found cloth fibres in her teeth.
So, we're testing for human blood and DNA.
Actually, my team found this gas station receipt at the scene.
It might not be connected but worth a try.
Okay, I'll see if I can match it to a name.
Yeah.
We need whatever we can get.
There were no fingerprints on the weapon.
The attacker either wore gloves or wiped the knife clean.
Actually, the 911 caller who reported the prowler described a jacket with a logo on it.
So we're making a sketch.
I'll see if I can get it to news orgs and social media.
Okay, great.
Yeah yeah.
No, I don't know nothing.
Bye, okay? Yeah, Dawn, I'm just asking if you might know somebody who was in that warehouse last night.
Listen, I heard about that police dog that was hurt but I don't know anything about that.
Okay, well has anyone been trying to sell stolen goods today? I'm sure I don't know anything about it.
Look.
I told you, man.
What have you got, pal? Uh Hey, um Hey hey hey hey! The scrap yard will give you a lot for this! Okay, well, my boyfriend bought some stuff off a guy this morning but I didn't know it was stolen.
That why you lied to me just now? Okay, Dawn, I'm going to need to talk to your boyfriend.
Well, good luck if you can.
I mean, Benji left for the ferry this morning.
Gone to look for work in Nova Scotia.
Okay, who sold him this? Look, I don't know the guy's name okay? But Benji said they were arrested together one time.
Did Benji have a last name? Benji Vine.
She got out of surgery about 20 minutes ago and she's stable.
It's lucky she's a healthy young dog but I'm afraid she's not out of the woods yet.
Well, it's good that she made it through the surgery.
How's Rebel's officer doing? - Worried about her partner.
- Mmmm.
This guy looks like he's worried too.
You know, everyone here is pulling for the both of them.
- Thank you, Doctor.
- My pleasure.
Yeah, Jesse.
Charlie we've got a call from the tip line about the logo on the suspect's jacket.
Okay great.
They said it was from a high school chess club.
I'm pulling up the past team rosters now.
Can you cross reference that with anybody who was arrested with a Benji Vine? Okay, yeah.
Who's that? A boyfriend of the witness.
He bought stolen property from the warehouse.
Let me see.
Let me see.
Yeah, yeah.
Okay.
Cory Scofield.
Just getting his record up now.
Looks like he has a couple of arrests for drug possession but no charges.
Thanks, Jesse.
Send me a photo array.
Oh, see? We're taking good care of her.
We're taking good care of her.
Such a brave girl.
Dr.
Bender.
Paging Dr.
Bender please.
- You gave me a scare there Maya.
- Bob! What are you doing here? Your mother called me and told me what happened.
How's Rebel? Hey, sorry to interrupt.
Hey, have you heard anything? Yeah, I think we made some progress on your case.
Your tip led us to some stolen goods and are you up for looking at a couple of photos? See if you can identify the intruder you chased this morning? - Of course, yeah.
- Great.
Here he is.
Here he is.
This is the man that we were chasing.
Who is he? Cory Scofield.
Appears to be living on the street and we've connected him with the stolen goods from the warehouse.
We have patrols out looking for him now.
And Rebel? They're going to know a lot more in the next 24 hours.
- I need to go see her.
- Whoah, whoah, whoah.
Lie back down there sweetheart.
The doctors are going to take good care of Rebel.
You know, you're probably right.
I am pretty tired.
Would you guys mind? Of course.
Get some rest.
Hope you feel better.
Thanks, Rex.
Come on, pal.
- Just a few minutes, all right? - Mm-hmm.
The oxygen is speeding her recovery.
Oh! Rebel! My good girl.
You're going to be okay.
So I've been looking at shelters.
Okay.
His name is Bentley.
He needs a home.
And I thought it could be good for us.
What? Oh, he's very cute! It's just I mean that's big relationship stuff.
Mm-hmm.
That doesn't scare me.
In fact, the opposite.
We don't even live together.
Yet.
And I'm not just saying that because of Bentley.
He's had a rough start.
And he just needs some love.
I know it must really be hard on you to see a K-9 injured.
I'm worried Charlie's taking it especially hard.
We're just used to thinking Rex is invincible and then something like this happens and, you just realize that everything can change in an instant.
Look at that face.
I thought maybe we could meet him tomorrow.
- Tomorrow? - Yeah.
- Okay.
- Yes? Yeah? - Yeah.
Yeah, let's do it.
- Yes? Okay! Oh.
Sorry.
Charlie's texting.
Oh, no.
Officer Power left the hospital.
He's going to the animal hospital to look for her.
I'm so sorry.
I've got to go check her house.
- Go go.
- Okay, bye.
- Talk to you later.
- Yeah.
You're going to be okay.
We know who did this to you.
I'm going to get him.
I've got her here, Sarah.
Thinking of going after Scofield yourself? Hey, yeah.
I'll call you back.
Doctors are concerned that you left the hospital.
I can't lie in that bed any longer not knowing what's happening.
Not knowing if she's going to live or die.
I spoke to my informant.
I know where Scofield is.
Charlie.
Take me with you.
- No.
- Please.
Put yourself in my shoes.
Hey, hey.
I got a hit on the receipt that forensics found at the warehouse.
- All right.
- It was a charge at a gas station, okay? And the credit card was traced back to Kate Miller.
- Kate Miller the warehouse manager? - Yeah.
- I guess that was a dead end.
- Well the thing is, the time stamp on the receipt was at 6:30 am the morning of the attack.
- She said she was home at that time.
- That's what you told me.
Okay let's look into this Mrs.
Miller.
Look into friends, family, employees.
See if there are records.
And let's look for a connection to Scofield.
I'm on it.
Sorry.
Whoah, whoah, hey, hey.
Listen! Listen, stop, stop, stop! You tried to kill my dog! You sick person! - You sick ! - Hey! Stay down! I hope you rot in jail! Come on, on your feet! Charlie, what were you thinking taking Officer Power with you? She was going to take matters into her own hands.
And it never occurred to you that she might become violent? Yeah, that's why I was keeping an eye on her.
Yeah, but, Charlie, she assaulted a man who still had the presumption of innocence.
Joe, I know what she did was wrong, but I understand her anger about her partner.
Charlie, is your judgment on the right side of this thing? Because I cannot send you into that interrogation room if you think that what she did was justified.
You know I don't think that, Joe.
We've still got a case to work.
Can I go? Yeah, go ahead.
Hey.
You know I love you, right? That's a good boy.
Want to tell me what you were doing in that warehouse? Nothing that earned me this.
Yeah.
Yeah, I know.
But we do have a witness who saw you flee the scene.
And Officer Power, she IDd you as the man she was chasing.
Oh, yeah? Well, she didn't actually see me hurt that dog.
You went in there with the intention to steal.
Is that correct? Come on, Cory.
We found the copper wire that you sold your friend.
Were you alone? Did you go in there with somebody? - Somebody who might have done this? - I was alone.
Okay.
So you needed money.
You went in looking to steal something.
The police came.
You defended yourself against the K-9 officer with a knife.
No, I When I saw the cop chasing me, I just ran out a side door.
- Which side door? - How do I know what door? - It was a side door! - Okay, you want me to believe you? We have DNA from the scene.
You give my forensics team a swab.
See if you're telling the truth.
Rule you out.
I want a lawyer.
How are you feeling? Better now that they have the guy that hurt Rebel.
But, um Is what you did to the suspect today, is that normal for you? Concussions can cause mood swings.
Uncharacteristic behaviour could just be a sign that you need to rest and recover from the injury.
Do you really think mood swings are an excuse for what I did? No, but I do think that you should get looked at.
I'll be fine.
Oh.
You're a good friend, Rex.
You're going to live for a long time, right? Yeah.
You're going to live forever.
Well, of course Cory Scofield would have the best defence attorney in town.
Yeah.
The kid's connected.
His father is on the hospital board with St.
John's best criminal defense lawyer.
His father could be on the board with the Pope.
Scofield did this.
It's too dangerous to have him out on the street.
Given the circumstances, unfortunately there's not much I can do.
Hmmm.
What if we tested his DNA against what Sarah got off Rebel? His DNA acquired from this arrest? Yeah, we're entitled to seize castoff evidence.
Sure nut in this case, that evidence is likely to be excluded.
What are you talking about? What's going to happen in court four months from now? I'm talking about a dangerous suspect and a victim who needs answers.
My job is to get a conviction.
How about you get some evidence that allows me to do that, Detective? Come on, pal.
Hey.
What? What's up? Is that enough for a DNA test? Is this from Scofield? - Yeah.
- I thought anything from the arrest was inadmissible.
Likely to be excluded.
But I want to know if I'm looking at the right guy.
I'm sorry.
Does Michael know that we're testing this? Does it matter? Yeah! Could you send a criminal background check and any records we have on the plant manager, Kate Miller? Okay, thanks.
Hey, buddy.
How are you doing? Just be safe out there in the field.
Yeah.
Yeah, we need you.
Michael's concerns about this case, they're legitimate.
You think he's worried about my professional reputation? I think he's worried about losing a case like this in court.
He's not used to losing.
Well, maybe he and I have a different idea of what it means to win.
Can I ask you, are you, are you pushing this test for Officer Power? Why are you asking me this? Charlie, we never talked about what happened with that witness.
What does that have to do with this case? I've just I've I've wondered what clouded your judgment and whether it might happen again.
My judgment? First Joe.
Now you.
Are you guys comparing notes? No, I'm asking as a friend because I care.
Did you run the test? Yeah, I ran it.
It's not a match.
Cory Scofield did not attack Rebel.
Superintendent! How can I help you? I'm just doing some follow-up.
I'm wondering if you've established whether anything was stolen during the break-in.
Yes, I had my staff do a full inventory.
Everything's accounted for.
That's strange, because well, we found some copper wire with a batch number that traced back to this facility.
We have a confession that they were stolen the night the police dog was attacked here.
So we missed something during our inventory.
Does that make me a suspect? And you were home during the time of the incident? I like to sleep in on Sundays.
Okay.
Could you just help me understand how you were both sleeping in and at a gas station about a kilometre from here? So you were in the vicinity.
Don't bother denying it.
See the thing that I can't quite figure out, why you would assault a police officer.
But then my team told me about your brother.
We've had a bit of a setback, girl.
It's nothing for you to worry about.
Your only job is to get better so you can come with me.
Hi! Hi! Hi! Yeah.
That's my good girl! You're going to be fine.
Okay? - Hi, Maya! - Bob! This is starting to get a little creepy.
Now don't say that.
I told you at the hospital, I just want to help! Look, I appreciate you coming.
But like I told you, I think a clean break is for the best.
Let's go, partner.
Detective Hudson! - Yeah.
- Have you seen Officer Power? - She's not inside? - She was just there.
You don't think she would have taken Rebel, do you? She's not ready to be discharged.
She wouldn't have done that, no.
But Rebel's gone.
And so is Officer Power.
I think she's been abducted.
Okay, Charlie, I'll get back to you.
Officer Power has been abducted.
And her K-9 partner is missing as well.
And you think this has something to do with my brother? Kate.
Your brother has a record.
He has a history of assault and theft.
Maybe he knew his way around your warehouse.
This has gone too far.
I was covering for Cory Scofield.
But he did not hurt that dog.
I need to show you something.
It's a warm place for when the weather isn't safe for people to be outside.
People like my brother.
But my bosses don't know.
That's why you shut the cameras off.
Cory Scofield is a regular here.
He called me that morning.
I told him we weren't open.
I do this by myself.
I can't do 24/7.
But you came anyway.
He sounded desperate.
I couldn't tell you the truth.
Because you knew you knew I'd have to report this place.
Jesse, I found Officer Power's phone at the scene.
Oh thanks.
Hey, anything from the warehouse manager? Um, no, she's clean.
Do we have any leads on Officer Power's abduction? Well, the vet said a man came wanting to see Rebel, but, she sent him away because he was suspicious.
So, do we really think that Rebel's attacker wanted to make another attempt on her life? Well, it sounds like it could have been personal.
Did we get an ID on the man at the animal hospital? The description of the man sounded like Maya's boyfriend, Bob Murphy.
I met him at the hospital.
I don't think Bob's Maya's boyfriend.
At least not according to these texts.
Looks like she broke up with him.
He kept texting her back, saying that he wanted to talk.
But she never responded to him.
Looks like the last text was two months ago.
Disgruntled ex.
But he still comes to visit her at the hospital.
He brought flowers so I assumed he was the boyfriend, but come to think of it, she wasn't exactly that warm with him.
Maybe maybe he followed her into the warehouse the night of the attack? Put an alert out on his vehicle.
I'm going to put a patrol on his house.
Jesse.
He was wearing a security guard's uniform.
A blue and orange logo.
Yeah.
This one? Yeah.
That's the one.
Can you get a list of all the properties he'd have access to? Yeah.
Yeah, um Hmmm.
Okay, maybe start with this one.
It's a shipping and trucking company in the middle of nowhere, but I trust your instincts.
Come on, let's go, pal.
Oh! Welcome back, sunshine! Careful.
Slowly, slowly, slowly.
Bob.
Bob.
Did you chloroform me? Well I heard you checked yourself out of the hospital.
I was concerned.
Most people bring lasagna, not chloroform.
There's that sense of humour I love.
Bob, what do you think is going to happen here? I want you to listen to me.
I know your dog didn't like me much, but, - with her being sick and all - She's not sick.
She was stabbed.
How do you think that happened, Bob? You know It's not right to let a pet dictate your lovelife, Maya.
It's not right! Easy, pal.
And did you think with Rebel dead, I would just change my mind about you? No.
No.
No, I'd be there to comfort you.
And you would see reason.
Maybe start listening to me.
This isn't the right way to do it.
You love to talk about the right way.
Well, I did things your way.
And you still left me.
Now we're going to do it my way.
What the hell? Rebel! Rebel, stay! No.
Good.
Good girl.
Now back up.
Good girl.
She really follows orders, huh? I guess that's why you like her better than me.
Rebel found us.
The police will too.
- Put the knife down, and nobody will - I told you Maya! You're not calling the shots anymore! The stupid animal doesn't give up.
Stay.
It's time to finish this.
Bob.
You don't want to hurt me.
What makes you say that? You went to all this trouble.
And I'm listening.
You followed us to the warehouse.
I was monitoring the police radios.
Were you planning to kill me too? I told you I love you! I just don't like your dog! Ughh! Uhhh! You okay? You were right.
About my judgment.
About kissing that witness.
You liked her enough to risk your job? Yeah, it was never it was never about her.
Uh Charlie.
When you want somebody who isn't available, you do stupid things.
You've been feeling this way for that long? Since you started talking about London.
Maybe before.
Doesn't matter.
Yeah, I'm happy for you.
You and Michael.
I just want you to be happy.
Hey, hey.
- Hi! - Hey.
I just finished the paperwork on Bob Murphy.
Oh, great! So, you got a confession! Charlie and Officer Power did.
I just got the signature.
And Officer Power gave an apology to Cory Scofield.
Okay! Well, Rebel's going to be retired from the K-9 unit, but the vet believes that she'll make a full recovery.
- Hey! That's good news! - Yeah.
And um the shelter said we could come by tonight and see the puppy.
Right.
Oh, he's so adorable.
But I I don't think we should rush such an important decision.
Uh Okay, yeah.
- Fair.
- Sorry.
I know we talked about this already.
But, um it just doesn't feel right to bring a pet into this, um when we're not sure, um, where it's headed.
Hey, I mean we have an idea where things are headed.
I mean, when you know, you know.
You don't you don't know.
I'm sorry.
- Okay.
- I wish I could tell you something different, Michael.
Is there someone else, or ?
