Ice (2016) s02e09 Episode Script

Clouds

Previously, on Ice Take me home.
Who the fuck are you working for? I wouldn't do that if I were you.
If you do it, you'll never find out what you really wanna know.
It seems your fuck-up nephew's recently cut a diamond that's worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
You son of a bitch.
You bugged me? You wanna steal their fuckin' diamond.
If I can't get it back legally, then I'm gonna need you to get it back your way.
I need you to put a crew together.
I know Rah murdered Malcolm.
She's also in Cape Town.
Good luck in South Africa! How do you know about that? Your Anastasia's all over the news.
Dad, this is Braxton.
Get behind me.
Now! I'm so sorry for all of this.
I believed everything he said.
You used my dad's diamond to buy - All of this shit! - How could you? Hollywood's own Emily Duran wore a necklace that has since been verified We did it.
We did it.
-To contain blood diamonds.
Fuck, fuck, fuck.
Diamonds are not forever.
That's bullshit.
Copy for television ads, a trite phrase.
There's more than one way to destroy a diamond, and probably easier than you think.
Good news You have $2.
1 million in pending sales.
Bad news you're on the hook for that amount should the sales fall through.
They won't fall through.
You're over-leveraged, Ms.
Green.
You sound concerned for someone who just told me that I'm two million in the black.
Diamonds are like stocks.
They're only worth as much as the public's trust in the seller.
Without trust, they're just rocks.
Grains of sand.
So you're saying my diamonds are worthless? No.
I'm saying you are.
Your reputation, anyway.
I'd like to speak to Natalya.
If Ms.
Brekov wanted to speak with you she wouldn't have sent me.
What's this? Termination of your relationship with Kocoma Syndicate.
Termination? But it wasn't even a Kocoma diamond that s Ms.
Brekov vouched for you.
Took a chance on you, and you repaid her by hawking blood diamonds.
Excuse me.
I was not "hawking blood diamonds.
" It was a singular incident, and it was a mistake.
A mistake the Kocoma Syndicate cannot afford to be associated with.
As per the document, you are hereby enjoined from using our name in any of your advertising, sales tools, or presentations.
And we will check.
Sell your diamonds for what you can get.
Clear your books.
And if you're still standing by the end of the month, find yourself a new supplier.
Here today, in Cape Town, the soul of South Africa, we, the diamond industry, are creating a clean slate.
And the internationally-renowned diamond company Westhuizen has volunteered to fund this historic task.
This is a visage of the new recertification process.
And, from this moment forward, any diamond certificate that does not bear this stamp will not be recognized as conflict-free.
The world's largest diamond dealers have brought the most valuable diamonds in the world here to inaugurate this process.
Is that safe? The diamonds, and the dealers, are protected by some of the strongest security protocol ever put in place.
Westhuizen have spared no expense and take full accountability and responsibility for every single recertified diamond here today.
Okay, the driver should be here in two minutes.
Good.
I'm starving.
I lost my appetite after that meeting.
- That bad, huh? - Just a minute, hon.
Cori.
Hi.
What? But we spent weeks picking out the setting.
You love that bracelet.
I know you do.
No Okay, but Just slow down for a minute.
Okay? What if I give it to you at a discount? 15 Okay, 10,000, for the whole thing.
That's That's the money you put down as a deposit.
Cori, I Yes.
Of course.
I'll cancel the order and I will wire your money.
Right away.
Okay.
Yes.
Talk to you later.
You okay, Mom? I just lost $25,000.
As quickly as possible, have them sent Isn't that Why? Why are you doing this? Ava.
No.
You're ruining my reputation.
And what do you get out of it? Now is not the time.
You gave me that necklace! You need to fix this.
You had a choice, Ava.
You could've said no.
No one forced you into doing anything.
You said there aren't enough women in this business.
You said that, and now you are deliberately sabotaging me.
I don't get it.
This isn't about you.
This isn't even about me.
It's bigger than that.
I'll take care of it.
Don't worry about her, Mom.
Let's go get some lunch.
Wow.
I really wish you hadn't heard that.
You gave her that necklace? Yes.
You caused all this? I'm sorry.
Sorry? That's not nearly enough.
Ah! Ah! Ah! Oh! No.
I'm sorry that you won't around to see how it ends.
Drive! Burning a diamond isn't easy, but place it in something like burning liquid oxygen, and poof no more diamond.
Reverts to plain old carbon dioxide.
But even that's not the best way to destroy a diamond.
Nothing like topping off 22 hours of travel with a fucking strip-search.
Yeah, well, you do look like you're coming off a bit of a bender.
I am coming off a bit of a bender.
Doesn't make me a security threat.
Yeah, well, last time, you were puking up diamonds.
It's a bit of an upgrade.
Well, at least this time we're legit.
Eh.
Just about.
All right.
Cab is here.
Wait.
What do you mean "just about"? What'll it be, handsome? Whiskey.
You got anything that passes for, uh, top-shelf in this shithole? One shelf, one kind of whiskey.
Bring it.
Welcome to the Rainbow Nation of South Africa, right? What? Desmond Tutu called it that.
Firstly, uh I been coming to Cape Town since before you was pulling your belly.
Secondly, what the fuck do you know about Desmond Tutu? I read a lot.
Okay.
I, uh, saw it on a poster in the can.
What are you, on fuckin' vacation? I hope you're putting in the same time to solve this as you are at learning the cultural history of this fucking town.
Boss, no one's biting.
What do you mean, no one's biting? I can't find a single fuckin' guy to do a job.
Ahh The way I hear it, something big's going down.
Even the two-bit pieces-of-shit are booked, forget any of the quality baddies.
It's fuckin' Rah.
Fuckin' Rah! I fuckin' know it.
You know, she's behind this.
Anyway, it doesn't matter.
That don't matter.
What about the other thing? Landing in an hour.
Really? Who needs actually needs bulletproof glass this thick? It can withstand a small nuclear blast.
You are adorable, but I don't believe you.
Ah.
I see the man is unconvinced.
- Uh-huh.
- Yeah.
Let me give you a demonstration.
Demonstr What, you have a nuke back there? Freddy, let's go.
It's the very same glass that surrounds security rooms in this building.
I don't actually care.
Thanks.
Bye, Freddy.
The body's been taken care of.
You know, the sharks have gotten fatter since you arrived.
Well, let's hope this is the only surprise that we have today.
I'm ready.
Are you sure you want to do this? Yes.
I am Rahwia, and they call me "Lady Rah".
I want to talk about some of the things I have done.
Second time I'm still awestruck.
The reserve is set at $100 million.
I can't I still can't believe that's the floor.
Are you sure that's not too high, to start? When they see it, trust me, it will far surpass that.
I trust you.
All right.
Let's get this party started.
Is there a place we can change? Ah, not so fast.
There's still a few paperwork items to complete.
Yeah, I know.
Oh, okay.
"I"s to dot, "T"s to cross.
Now, tell me which one of you did Isaac leave this beautiful lady to? Neither of us.
In the will, which one of you was named? Neither of us.
Boys the owner must be present to sign the paperwork in order for it to be auctioned.
Yeah.
And I'll go get her.
Thanks.
It was one piece, Michelle.
It was a mistake.
My diamonds are spectacularly clean.
No, no, no, no, no.
They're Russian.
No, they're not even from Yeah.
Okay, okay.
Fuck! I feel like I'm falling and my parachute won't open.
It's gonna be all right.
How? Show her.
May I? Are you ready? Bam.
You cut this in the basement? Yeah, with, uh, with prehistoric tools, and coming down off a coke binge.
You know.
Not bad for a fuck-up.
Yeah, well You're no more of a fuck-up than the rest of us.
Yeah, that's like our, uh, our family motto.
We should make a commercial.
"Green and Green.
Buy your diamonds from people you couldn't possibly be more fucked up than.
" Anyways, look, that is gonna be what gets everything back on track.
For you.
No.
For us.
But I need Willow.
Why? Um So she can certify that she owns the Anastasia.
I told you she wasn't gonna like this.
Neither of us can say that we own it, right? Because, the government, they will consider it part of the assets that they seized.
So I had a lawyer friend add this stone to Pop's will.
A codicil that says he left, uh, her both diamonds.
2012? You forged your father's will.
Well, nobody fuckin' knows that, though.
I know it.
You know it.
You Are you okay with this? I mean I just cut the stone, really.
Way to stand tall, Freddy.
Thank you.
Come on, Jake.
We can't use her like that.
It's illegal and it would completely jeopardize her future.
- Excuse me? - Jake.
- "Use her"? - That's not what she No.
It's all right.
Please, get off your high horse and tell me where the Holocaust diamond is.
That was legally left to her, and I was appointed as guardian.
And then you used it to finance your own fucking business.
Come on, man.
Let's go.
It's fine.
It's fine, Freddy.
Your parachute won't open 'cause you jumped out the fucking plane with your daughter's.
Okay What were you gonna do with the diamond, Jake, whenever you were looking for it? - I'll do it.
- What No, you won't, Willow.
Yeah, I'll say Papa left it to me.
Willy-G seriously.
He was gonna talk to you.
You do not have to do this.
I want to.
Honey I got it.
Don't worry.
That's great! That's great.
Let's go.
I need the stone.
You need to stay here and change.
Oh.
Okay.
Right.
Thanks, kid.
Come on.
Even going private, that's a motherfucker of a flight, huh? Nah, it's not so bad if you stop off in London for a day in the middle.
Oh, yeah! Did get what you needed out of the grieving mother? Went as well as I expected.
Hell hath no fury, huh? Look.
You wanted to meet.
Nah.
Not really.
I just didn't want you to think I forgot about you.
Oh, so you're fucking with me, right? Perish the thought, Cam.
Oh, your nephews' auction's about to start.
We'll know soon enough if this is gonna go your way or mine.
Oh Mousy, uh where did that cunt go before he came here? Nowhere, really.
A hotel downtown.
You want me to clip him? No, not yet.
We got things to do.
What is this? A service tunnel.
Pop showed Freddy and I this when we were kids.
Not a lot of people know about it.
I can see you and Uncle Freddy running down this hall, Papa laughing.
Mm, more like slapping us in the back of the head, telling us to grow up.
Papa? Yeah, you know, he changed a lot when you were a kid.
Look.
Before we go in I want to I just want to say thank you for doing all of this.
All right? And I promise, when it's all over, everything will go back to normal.
"Normal" being you and Mom use me? What? Like hell it will.
When this is all over, I want a third of what that rock brings in.
A third? You need me to sell that diamond and I want to be paid.
But if you just give me a chance to explain Yeah.
Sure.
Yeah.
Bye.
I will never get used to wearing a suit.
It's that bad, huh? I'm like a leper.
Fuckin' Lady Rah, man.
I hear that.
I was on the wrong end of that girl's hyenas, so I know what you're talking about.
Is that like a metaphor for something? No! She really had hyenas! You don't know about the hyenas? Uh, no.
I'll tell you about 'em sometime.
Not fun.
Okay All right.
You look good.
I do? Yeah.
Good.
I feel like Well, I feel like shit.
My heart feels like it's got glue running through its arteries.
Guess it's gonna take a while to get the drugs out of my system again.
Well, you did it once, you can do it again.
Yeah? I hope so.
Last time, I had a little help with jail, so You can do it.
Yeah.
I can.
Come here.
What? Let me fix you up here.
I fucked up? Yeah, you fucked up.
You're all good.
Good? I'm glad you're here.
Yeah, me too.
I love you.
Mm.
I love you, too.
No.
Um Um Ava says you remind her of her brother.
A fuckin' failure.
Did Ava really say that about me? Does your brother know? What? That you're fuckin' in love with her.
What are you talking about? I don't know what's sadder the fact that she would never have anything to do with someone like you or that you don't seem to know it.
What? Nothing.
When we get back home, if it's cool, I-I think I there's something I need to say to you.
Okay.
Sounds a little cryptic.
No! No, no, no.
It's not.
It's not.
It's not bad.
Yeah, I It's just It's about me.
I've just been thinking about myself a lot, lately, and, you know thinking about why I do the shit I do, and, um, I, you know, I think I don't I don't say what I need to say.
I think that's one of the reasons I get fucked up.
I get it.
Yeah and I've been thinking about Pop a lot.
In the basement, cutting stones there was so much shit I had to say to him.
Just I was I was too busy, like, trying to I was too busy.
I don't want to do that anymore.
You can you can always talk to me.
I know.
I know.
All right.
I'm gonna go.
I'm late.
See you later.
Good luck.
Gotta make some money.
That should do it.
Thanks, Miss Green.

Pleased to meet you.
Isaac spoke very fondly.
He was the best.
I miss him a lot.
As do I.

How'd it go? It was easy.

All right.
Hang on.
Sorry, Willow.
We need to talk.
Just you.
N'Koulou, would you give us a second? Come on in.
It is now time to own a piece of history.
Once thought lost, forgotten.
Ladies and gentlemen the Anastasia Diamond.
Presented by Green and Green.
Reserve price is set at $100 million, U.
S.
There's a small catch.
The file will be unlocked remotely tomorrow.
And this fully exonerates me from any involvement in blood diamonds? That's just the beginning.
With this video, you will be able to take over the entire diamond industry.
And what do I have to do? Just stay quiet.
For 24 hours.
Agreed? Agreed.
Whether you wear it, show it, or use it as an investment, you will not come across this stone as rare as this one in a very Where the fuck have you been? Give me a break.
Every private room in here looks exactly the same.
I've been in nine of them.
How are we doing? Not good.
Barely hit the reserve.
I think we fuckin' started too high.
No.
No.
Are you fucking kidding? I just saw a dude shell out a small fortune for a stone that had more clouds in it than a rainy, fucking day, just to get laid.
Okay? This This is history.
What the fuck is wrong with these people? Saul acts like everyone already knows the history.
Well, they should.
I don't think they do.
Okay.
Look.
You need to tell them.
I? No.
What? Yeah, the story of the Anastasia.
Salesmanship is more your thing.
No, no, no.
You know its history better than anyone.
Right? Come on, Freddy.
Ecron Mashgabee.
What? Ecron Mashgabee? Seriously? And for that reason, looks beautiful set with Um Ecron Mashgabee.
What? You know? The greatest diamond cutter in the history of diamond cutters, the man who cut the Anastasia.
You don't know him? Oh 'kay.
I'm jealous you guys get to hear his story for the first time.
So, of course, you know the legend of the Anastasia Diamond? The kidnapping, the heroics, the magic etcetera.
But the real story the real story is Ecron.
Okay, let me set the scene.
It's 1529.
The Siege of Vienna fails, war is raging, Suleiman the Magnificent desperately wants peace, so, as an act of goodwill, he sends a gift to the king of Spain, King Charles a 600-carat flawless rough, which he names, uh, "The Constellation.
" And, along with the stone, he sends his own personal cutter, Ecron, who will cut the diamond, which will be a gift for the Queen.
Now, Ecron is a fiercely loyal man, and he has been with Suleiman for years, so he is absolutely He's so like Isaac now.
- Devastated to be used - I know.
As a pawn in Suleiman's political aspirations, so he refuses to cut the stone.
Suleiman doubles down.
He detains Ecron's daughter, whose name is wait for it Anastasia and sends her to King Charles.
The King gives Ecron one last month to cut the diamond, or his daughter dies.
Now, the only thing more fierce than Ecron's sense of loyalty, is his love for his daughter.
So what did he do? Well, obviously, he cut the stone.
Yeah, he cut the shit out of it, too.
You know, when he was almost finished, he-he-he he wrote a letter to Suleiman.
He said it was the most difficult diamond he had ever cut.
He wrote "Each and every facet was polished with the endless tears of betrayal and sacrifice.
" Anyway, the month ended, and he wasn't quite finished, so he asked the King for an extra day, the King agreed.
"Give me the stone in 24 hours, and I will release Anastasia to you.
" So, he worked all night, he was polishing the final facet as dawn broke.
In fact, he only missed the 24-hour deadline by a matter of minutes.
The King was overjoyed.
Ecron renamed the diamond "The Anastasia," delivered it to the King, who was so taken by its beauty, that he hardly noticed Ecron's gut-wrenching screams as Anastasia was brought forth in a casket.
See, the King kept both promises.
He killed Anastasia at the deadline and delivered her body when Ecron finished.
Well, he was broken.
Ecron had nothing left to live for.
He grabbed his masterpiece and slit his own throat.
Pretty fuckin' dramatic, huh? Given how it came into existence, it's no wonder it has defined every family that's owned it for the last 500 years.
To be a part of that history is priceless.
Jake, are you absolutely certain we have to sell this stone? Yeah.
Heartbreak.
Yes, hello? The bid is 1.
4 And here I thought I was the salesman.
Oh, they just needed a little kick in the ass.
No, they just needed you.
Is any of that story real? How dare you? All right.
Here's this.
I'm gonna go get my suit on.
Thanks.
Big day, huh, Jake? I know you? Jeff Reardon.
Until recently, I've been looking after your brother, Freddy.
The sober coach? You didn't help me much with that, did you? What the fuck are you doing here? How's the sale of the U.
S.
government's diamond going in there? What? As soon as it sells, I'm gonna seize it.
You work for them.
Sort of.
They're gonna pay me well after this, anyway.
Does Freddy know? What Freddy doesn't know could fill this entire place.
You should watch what you say about my brother.
Yeah.
Like you give a fuck about him.
Try me.
You seem pretty cocksure for a guy who's about to lose everything again.
Well, maybe what you don't know is pretty substantial as well.
You see, that diamond is actually property left to my daughter by my father before the seizure.
Check that out.
That's not possible.
No? And yet I've been up and down this will.
This was never here! This is a forgery.
Yeah, well, good luck trying to prove that.
I got a really good fuckin' lawyer.
I know you do.
Hey This is going so much better than I ever imagined it would.
Have you seen our stocks? Every dip we took has disappeared.
Doubled, even.
Charles should be here.
- Yeah.
- Ah, you know him.
Fashionably late to take all the credit.
Yeah, well, the credit belongs to all of us, lady and gentlemen.
I have to say, from the onset, I didn't have much faith, but you have pulled off a bloody miracle.
Well, I dare say, by the end of the day, you will be shocked what I'm capable of.
You know, your daughter's an extortionist.
Right? Wonder where she got that from.
Is she not back yet? Uh, no.
She, um she had to go to the gift shop.
Oh.
I'm surprised that she didn't rush back to tell you about our deal.
What deal? She made me promise to give her a third of the selling price of the Anastasia diamond.
Oh.
Impressive.
Mm-hmm.
That girl could've gotten half from you.
Mm.
Don't push it.
Go, Willow.
Yeah.
You mind if I go change? Go ahead.
Oh I take it your way didn't quite work out? Your nephew fucked me.
So I should feel sorry for you? He has a codicil to his father's will, leaving the diamond to his kid.
Yeah, well, it wasn't there before.
No shit.
He had Tessa put it in.
It's a forgery, but if I know Tessa, it's an air-tight one.
Well, you should've let me fucking kill her when I had the chance.
She's being dealt with.
Oh.
Sir! In here! She's in the wind.
Hi.
You've reached Tessa Pryor.
I'm unavailable at the moment.
Please leave a message and I'll call you back at my earliest convenience.
It's Jake.
So, look.
I know that you said what you said and all, but I don't take rejection very well.
Look.
I just wanted to say thank you.
You know, none of this would be possible if it weren't for you, and "this" is going really well.
Um So, thank you.
I was also hoping maybe, you know, we could talk when I got back talk about us, maybe? Let me call you back Jesus, call me back.
Fucking Rah.
Dammit.
What the hell is going on down there? I have no idea, but that was definitely gunfire.
Holy shit.
Hello? This is the one that instantly charges your phone, right? Absolutely.
Just plug it in, and, bang, it's fully charged.
Awesome.
Cool.
Have a good day.
Thanks.
Hello? Willow, where the hell have you been? I told you, I had to get a charger.
Why? What's up? I just I want you back here now.
'Kay, fine.
Okay, right away.
The irradiation process happens at an imperceptible rate in normal environmental conditions, but over billions of years So if you really want to destroy a diamond Blow it the fuck up.
I can't wait either, baby-doll.
Because diamonds are only forever if you believe the bullshit.
