In The Dark (2019) s03e05 Episode Script

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

1 You have to help me get Jess.
Did you hear me? I need your help.
Why on earth would I ever help you? Hey, you're still here? It's Murphy.
I'm ready to turn myself in.
And what do you want? Jess.
She was kidnapped, and I need you to get her out.
Who kidnapped her? This guy named Josiah.
He took over Nia's business.
Arrest him, too.
I don't care.
Just get her out.
The drugs.
That must be where the cartel shipment went.
We need to get the entire stash to get the chief on board.
Say something.
Trust me, this isn't gonna happen without it.
I'm sorry.
Just I need your help.
We'll get Jess.
But we'll also need the heroin.
Every brick.
Does Josiah keep the drugs at the arcade? Yeah.
You can have it.
All of it is at Downtown Empire Arcade on 35th Street.
That's where Jess is, too.
- One more thing.
- What? Look, we both know that you didn't kill Nia alone.
So I also want Felix Bell, Max Parish - and Jessica Damon.
- Josh.
I'm the one you want.
I am.
Leave them out of it.
I know how much your friends mean to you.
So all four of you.
Deal? What what is it? What's he saying? I heard him say my name.
He wants you and Max and Jess, too.
I'll text you my number.
Give me till the morning to secure you a safe house.
I'll send the details.
Josiah only gave us until 9:00 p.
tomorrow night.
Well, as long as you surrender before then, that won't be a problem.
See you tomorrow, Murphy.
Now all we got to do is convince Max.
It's not poisonous or anything.
See? Come on.
You haven't eaten anything.
I'm Alex.
Look, I know what you must think.
What kind of person works for someone like Josiah? For what it's worth, I'm I'm taking care of my little sister.
What Josiah's doing to you, it's not okay.
It's really good.
Peanut butter, jelly and chips.
It's my sister's favorite.
I heard you were a vet.
What? Oh, um Yeah, I I was.
I I-I am.
I don't know.
Why'd you get into this? Oh.
I, uh Hey, hey, hey.
It's okay.
It's gonna be okay.
Is there anything I can get you? I know that this sounds stupid, given the circumstances, but I usually have, like three cups of coffee a day, and my head is pounding, so can can you find me some caffeine? Sure thing.
Alex? Thank you.
Max's phone still isn't going through.
Okay, how's the stupid list coming? Can you can you hurry up? It takes more than one minute to find every restaurant in Winnipeg that could be considered a diner, okay? I can't believe you didn't get the name of it.
Well, it's not exactly like Max and I were chatting it up before we all left for obvious reasons.
What obvious reasons? You know.
The motel.
Can you stop talking about that? Please.
List is done.
Here, why don't you guys take these.
I'll use the phone in our room for the rest.
We're supposed to be asking for a Kyle Green? I would try Max Parish, too.
I have no idea what name he could be using.
There isn't anything at the arcade that can tie you guys to Josiah, right? He said he wants every brick, and I don't want you going down because of us.
No, we're good.
Come on, Pretzel.
Find outside.
I'll let you guys know if we find anything.
You okay? Look, Josiah's not gonna know you were in on this.
But are we really gonna be working with Five-O now? - Come on, man.
- We're not.
We are not.
All we're doing is keeping our mouths shut.
And it doesn't bother you that all that "H" is gonna end up in some evidence locker somewhere? No.
Yeah, I'm looking for a Kyle Green.
Yeah, he would've just started.
Where's the chief? He's late.
Don't worry, he'll be here.
But remember, let's not mention Murphy.
All right? We're just gonna keep this about the drugs.
That is all the chief cares about.
Hey, Chief, thank you for coming in so late.
It's not a problem, as long as you've actually found the rest of that cartel shipment.
Yeah, we have.
We're just waiting approval on the raid.
Well, I'll call SWAT Monday and we'll put something together.
With all due respect, sir, time is of the essence here.
I want to make sure they don't move anything.
They're not gonna move it as long as they don't know we're coming.
Which could happen, given recent events.
- What if we have another mole? - Clemens we've been trying to get this shipment for months.
I'm not gonna blow it on some ill-prepared raid.
- You understand? - Okay, listen There's a girl being held hostage in the basement with the drugs.
She's gonna die if we don't get there immediately.
Held hostage? Come on, give me a break.
What is this, a Die Hard movie? - No, sir, just listen - Look, Murphy Mason and her friends are gonna turn themselves in if we get Jess Damon out.
We get the drugs, we get Nia Bailey's killers.
All in one fell swoop.
But we have to act quickly.
So, wait.
This is all the evidence you have? - Yeah, there's enough there.
- There isn't.
No way a judge is gonna issue a search warrant without significant probable cause.
- It's a dead end.
- Sir, please.
Boys I'm sorry, it's a no.
Josh blew it when he mentioned Murphy.
Why don't you just tell him you're after the chief? 'Cause he's obsessed with Murphy going away for, like, ever.
He'll never agree to cutting her a deal.
You don't know unless you ask.
Trust me, I know.
Well, now what, then? I don't know.
Go ahead.
- Go ahead go ahead what? - Ask for help.
It's why you dragged me here, isn't it? Maybe I just wanted to hang out.
Okay, fine, fine.
There are ways to search a place without a warrant.
That's literally the point of a warrant.
Well, there's a couple loopholes.
- Loopholes? - Mm-hmm.
I mean, I was in Narcotics for ten years.
I had to find a way to get creative.
Like, uh, plain sight.
Hot pursuit.
You're saying stage Murphy running into the arcade? If it happens to lead you right to Jess and the drugs I don't know.
It sounds sketchy.
Beat him at his own game.
I'm gonna need another drink.
Excuse me.
How's the head? Still not great.
I found some Advil.
That should help.
Thank you.
Alex? Yeah? I can't die in here.
You said it yourself, you know.
This isn't okay.
And I need you to promise me - that you won't let that happen.
- I don't have any power - around here.
- I-I know.
I know.
I know.
But, um Can you Can you just Can you just try, please? Please? Okay.
- Okay.
- It's late.
- Try to sleep.
- Okay.
Thank you.
Yeah, his name is Kyle Green.
He has a beard.
No, sorry.
Max Parish? There is no one here by that name.
Brownsline Cafe.
This is Dougie.
Hi, Dougie.
I'm looking for a person named Kyle Green.
Does he work there? No.
No, there's no Kyle here.
How about Max Parish? Y-Yeah, no, no, I-I don't think there's anyone here by that-that name, either.
Are you sure? We're friends of his.
No Max Parish here.
- I-I got to go.
- Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Call-call him back.
Yeah, what do you think I'm doing? - Brownsline Cafe.
- Dougie? I just need to speak to Max.
Okay? It Okay that's obviously where Max is.
And he told this Dougie not to tell anyone, so we should, we should just drive to that place.
It's eight hours away.
Do you have another plan? I can't believe I came all the way across town to listen to your drunken ideas.
It loosens up the old noggin.
So, you seriously want to stage this pursuit? What other option do we have? This could be our only shot at getting Murphy and them.
No way we can pull this off.
What? Have a drink, and I'm-a tell you how we're gonna do it.
- Barkeep! - No, no, no.
- Another round, good sir.
- No, no, no.
- Thank you.
- It's fine.
It's all right.
That's what you guys say, right? - Yeah.
Something like that.
- Thank you.
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way ♪ Oh, what fun it is to ride ♪ Table for four? Um We're actually looking for Max Parish? I think he just started working here? Can you take these to seven? Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh ♪ You must be Murphy.
You must be Dougie.
So you do know Max.
Go, laughing all the way ♪ Yeah.
Yeah, we, uh we went to high school together.
I'm assuming you guys are the ones who kept calling? Yes.
Why did you pretend like you didn't know who he was? Why did you stop answering our calls? Look, Max seemed really freaked out, okay? He, he told me not to tell anyone he was coming to town.
- Look, just tell us where he is.
- He really didn't show.
- Come on, man.
- I swear to God.
Okay? He was supposed to start on Tuesday, but he met some chick, called me from her house and-and flaked.
Well, listen up, Dougie, we just drove eight hours.
So obviously we need his number, like, now.
Okay? I thought I'd take a ride ♪ I love Max.
I'm not gonna do anything to hurt him.
Okay? Please give us the number.
He got into a drifted bank and then ♪ Can you get off my ass? - Okay, sorry.
- Geez close.
Hello? Um.
Hi, c-can I talk to Max? Um Hey.
It's for you.
Hello? Don't hang up.
How did you get this number? We're at the, uh, that diner - you were supposed to work at.
- What? Th What, in Winnipeg? - Yeah.
- Why? Josiah has Jess and he wants 300 grand by tomorrow or he's gonna kill her.
And we obviously don't have that kind of money.
- Max? - Who's we? I'm with, uh, Felix and Darnell and Trey.
Why are you guys calling me? You know I don't have that kind of cash, either.
I know.
I know.
None of us do.
Which is why we, uh, we went to the cops, um, for help.
And they said that they'll get Jess out, but only if we all turn ourselves in.
I tried to take the rap for everyone, but, um, they said no.
Max, I know it sucks and it's so unfair.
But, um, if Jess if she, um, if she dies, I, uh Yeah, I c I um I just really need you to Please? Please? Okay.
I'll meet you in Chicago.
- Um, we can come pick you up.
- No, I'm good.
I have a car.
I'll text you when I get close.
Max, thank you.
I'm not doing this for you.
A cockroach.
I'm literally jealous of a cockroach.
That's where I'm at.
Deck the halls with boughs of holly ♪ Look at him, just crawling around, having a nice time.
Not even cold.
Don we now our gay apparel ♪ Anyway, at least you'll be popular in prison.
You'll make friends.
Oh, yeah.
With my totally winning personality that everybody seems to have zero problems with.
Come on.
No, I mean, I'm a total utter failure.
In every possible sense of that word.
I am a loser.
- No, you're not.
- Yes, I am.
I am, Murphy, and you know it.
You know, I didn't want to I didn't want to say this because I didn't want to make things, like, weird, but I guess it doesn't really matter now, um, but you're good at sex.
And you can't be a loser if you're good at sex.
- Are you being serious? - Yeah.
And if I wasn't going to prison, I would probably do it again if I was horny enough, so.
Thank you.
I I guess I try to sort of pay attention to, like, the details - and stuff, so - Oh, I know.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la ♪ Was there something, like, s-specifically that w-worked, or? No, uh let's move on, though.
I can't believe this actually might work.
Hey, man, you good? What? Yeah.
I'm just hungry, that's all.
All right.
Thank you.
You guys happy? You got your little takeout? Well, you wouldn't let us stop on the drive here, so we haven't eaten for, like, 12 hours.
We were hungry.
It's okay.
Train doesn't leave for another 40 minutes.
Wait, we're taking the train? What is it, 1910? Security's, like, a thousand times lighter than an airport.
Hey, um, they forgot my silverware, - so I'm gonna go back in.
- Okay.
- Be right back.
- Just go get it.
Come on.
Let's go, let's go.
Heedless of the wind and weather ♪ Fa-la-la-la-la ♪ La, la, la, la.
♪ What up, man? You alone? Uh, no, not really.
Call me when you are.
I got a business opportunity for you.
What kind? I got a way for us to take over.
Murphy, you want to grab a drink? No, I'm okay.
I'm gonna try to close my eyes for a little bit.
I'll, uh I'll grab a drink with you, man.
Oh, goo Cool, yeah.
No, I mean, I-I was obviously inviting every-everyone.
Shall we? To the bar car? Let's go.
Darnell tells me that they actually have the money.
But if they don't, or they don't show, you'll take care of her.
I'll go and get the supplies.
The place will be empty when you come back.
I'll close up early.
What's the cut-off? 9:00 p.
Um, do you have a second? I have a prior engagement.
Make it quick.
It's about Jess.
I was thinking about how she's really your only bargaining chip when it comes to getting the money.
And if you kill her before you get your money, it just seems like, I don't know, a waste, I guess.
A waste? A waste to punish the people who thought they could steal from me? W-Well, I I know what you're trying to do.
I'm moving you back to distribution.
Sutton and Fifth.
Sutton and Fifth? Nobody buys there.
I won't make enough.
I know.
So I suggest you rearrange your priorities if you'd like to stick around here.
Now, if you'll excuse me.
Yo, check it out.
The guy out front printed off the arcade floor plan for me.
- Nice.
- Okay.
All right, look here.
These stairs lead to a basement.
Which is probably where he's keeping the drugs and Jess.
Now, if they walk through the front door, they're first gonna go past the snack area, where they sell all those nasty hot dogs and things like that.
Then they're gonna go past the main arcade area.
That's where they have all their games and a few tables set up.
It's about a hundred feet or so until they get to the back where the laser tag arena is.
This is where it gets a little tricky.
It's essentially an obstacle course back there.
The whole place is designed to make you feel like you don't know where you're going.
What are we gonna do if Josiah has guys guarding those stairs? No, dude, I've been there before.
It's a completely functioning business.
They don't have no guards, no guns, no nothing.
At least nothing that's visible.
My best guess is, Jess is in that room closest to the stairs.
Where's Alex? Please tell me where Alex is.
Where's Alex?! Please tell me where No! Come back! Now we just got to hope that she's still alive by the time we get there.
- You're insane.
- I know.
I didn't use a toilet seat cover, leave me alone.
No, sicko, it's just, I can't believe that you got everyone to do this for me.
Seriously? You think we'd just let you die in there? Oh, my God.
- I'm sorry.
- No.
I did.
Well No, I did.
- I did think that.
- Geez.
Do you think we're gonna have, like, the same prison block? - Room? What do you call it? - Bunk.
- Bunk? - I think.
I don't know.
They're gonna eat us alive.
You're, like, actually looking forward to this? You think you're gonna have some hot prison girlfriend? - No.
- Yeah, you do.
Just, I guess I will feel a lot safer there than I do right now.
Well, then, you're welcome.
I didn't say thank you.
- I've got to wash my hands.
- Yes.
You do.
Pretzel? Pretzel? Hi, buddy.
- How long have I been out? - No idea.
I'll be right back.
Where are you going? I'm gonna go catch up with D.
No, I need to get out of my stupid head.
You're talking to me.
Please? Okay.
What do you want to talk about? I don't know.
Where'd you grow up? All over.
- Your parents moved a lot? - Nope.
Uh, I moved a lot.
Were you in the system or something? Uh yeah.
Me, too.
That makes sense why you act the way you do.
How do I act? You have this tough guy facade and, you know, you play tough.
You're emotionally unavailable.
I bet the girls love it.
Looks like you need another one.
Looks like you need to slow down.
This might be my last drinks for a long time.
Trying to soak it in.
Excuse me, garçon, uh, could we get another, please? - Can I ask you a question? - Yes.
These are your last moments of freedom.
Why are you sitting here with me? Because we're bros.
And where else am I supposed to be? With Murphy.
Why would I be with Murphy? 'Cause you're into her.
I'm what? I am not into You got your wires crossed, man.
I am not into Murphy.
Are we friends? Of course.
Did sh Did we have sex? Sure.
Sure we did.
Did it feel oddly natural? Uh-huh.
Did she say she would do it again if she was horny enough? Absolutely.
Yeah, you know what, maybe I'll just Maybe I'll just go see if she wants a drink.
There you go.
There you go.
Honey ♪ You don't know what you're gonna be, yeah.
♪ Murphy? - Yeah? - Oh, hey, sorry.
I've been waiting for you at our seats, and then I just saw Pretzel here, so I just thought I'd check on you.
Okay, I'll be out in five minutes.
Five minutes? Shut up.
Shut up.
All good.
Yeah, just carry on.
I'll just drink these alone.
Thank you for that rad advice.

Good to see you, brother.
Hey, Trey.
Where are we going? We don't know yet.
Did you get an address? Uh "Where are we going?" - Send.
- Josh.
Thought you said it was the cops.
It is.
Josh is just working, he's working with them now, but it doesn't really matter.
Text from Josh.
"Meet me at Dominion Pub.
" I thought he said we were going to a safe house.
I know, I did, too.
We got to stop and get gas.
Seriously? I just drove ten hours.
I got to fill up.
So, yeah, seriously, get in the car.
How was your lesson? Fine.
Did you learn anything? Not really.
Money well spent.
Can I go to Megan's house after the aquarium tomorrow? What? Nothing, I just, I forgot your permission slip at work.
- What? - Don't worry.
I'll go back and get it once I drop you off at home.
I'll go inside and pay.
Thanks, man.
Uh, I'm gonna go in and grab a bottle of water for Pretzel.
Come on, buddy.
Good boy.
- Did you guys hook up? - Yes.
Yes, they did, didn't you? You did, right? Yeah, they did.
Sorry, uh, is that a secret? - I'm so sorry.
- Felix, can you just give us a second? Me? I Yep, yep, you.
You're the only Felix in the car.
Sorry about him, he just likes to talk a lot.
- It's all good.
- Anyway, um Look, I know Murphy's going to prison.
And you're just my friend's friend.
But don't go down that road, man.
I'm not going down any road.
Look, I know you guys had a thing.
- Uh-huh.
- And that's cool.
But we just get each other.
This is what she does.
She makes you think you guys have this special connection or whatever.
All she does is distract you while she messes up your life.
Look at me, man.
I know you think she likes you.
But she's just using you to get what she wants.
Trust me.
All right, take care of yourselves.
I'll, uh, I'll visit you guys.
Yeah, please do.
Thank you for everything.
Yo, Trey, wait up.
What's up? Nothing, I just want to make sure you're good.
This is, uh you know, it's a lot.
Want to grab a bite to eat or something? Nah, man.
I'm still pretty exhausted.
Plus I should figure out what I'm gonna do for work.
All right.
I'll hit you up later.
All right.
Stay blessed.
It's back on.
I'm gonna need you to grab as much "H" as you can before the cops get there.
We want to make sure we give them plenty of space to get to the stairs.
Hey, heads up.
Hello, Murphy.
Why aren't we in a safe house? Look, I'll explain everything.
Max Parish.
I'm Josh Wallace.
Nice to finally meet you.
Okay, then.
Should we get started? Get started? Just arrest us and go get Jess.
Well, it's not as simple as that.
The chief didn't go for this, so we have to improvise a little.
What do you mean "improvise"? Look, without a warrant, our options are limited, but if you guys go in first and lead us to Jess, then we're well within our legal bounds.
Okay, I don't I don't care, just tell us what we have to do.
Here's how it's gonna go down.
The last thing we want is to tip Josiah off.
So you have to follow our instructions to a tee.
When you guys leave here, get back in your car.
Gene will place a GPS, so don't get any ideas.
We'll follow you the whole way to the arcade.
All right, man.
Here we go.
It's a 30-minute trip.
And we'll have eyes on you the whole time.
Al, hang on.
I don't even know what to say.
Is this what you do? You just steal drugs every night? No! Listen, the cops are coming to bust Josiah.
But Trey's gonna use what I can get to start over.
- What? - We can be at the top.
I'm gonna be Trey's right-hand man.
- Alex, wait! - No.
I don't want anything to do with this! Josiah's gonna kill us both if he finds out! All right.
Hey, give me your keys.
Mine are inside.
So are mine! We-we got to get out of here.
The cops are gonna be here soon.
I'm not going anywhere with you.
Now we'll wait until the last possible second to sound our sirens.
We don't want to tip off Josiah.
With any luck, he won't know what hit him.
