In The Dark (2019) s04e02 Episode Script

No Cane Do

Can I help you?
I think we can help each other.

Sorry, who are you?
It doesn't matter.

They're, they're
they're doing a shakedown.

Yeah, well, they do that.

Got it covered.

They don't check my people.

Okay, this isn't routine, Paula.

Someone just got killed,
and because of that,
the warden ordered a full sweep,
and it's happening, uh, right now.

Give me the drugs.

I'm guessing you have a bunch,
and, you know, these guards,
they-they think I can't take
two steps on my own, so
Why would I trust you?
I'm just trying to show some kindness.

Be helpful.

Back to your cell.

Secure all cells.

Emergency sweep.
Prepare for inspection.

- Get back to your cell.

- Just
I said back to your cell!
S Sorry.

Where the hell have you been?
Oh, God, I
Uh, I-I got lost
and no-no one would help me.

- You're good.
Just get in here.

- Okay.


I'm sorry.

I'm so sorry
for missing your bail hearing.

I'm gonna figure this out, I promise.

I know, I know.

I'm a stupid idiot, and now your bail
is set to two million stupid dollars,
and I'm the biggest moron
who ever lived.

Why did I listen to my sister, you ask?
I do not know.

But, hey, let's not dwell on the past.

May bygones be bygones, okay?
New year.
New me.

I'm gonna make this right.

Because I'm
your best friend.

Hold still, please.

We've been at this for two hours.

That's an impossible ask.

You're almost done.

Where are you going?
Just gonna see Murphy real quick.

Dude, Gran is making us go
to Jimmy McKay's fundraiser.

Yes, which is why I'm bringing
this snappy tuxedo.

Felix, you know
the deal we have with her.

- You can't be late.

- I know.

I will meet you there, okay?

Thanks for taking those off my hands.


Turn to your left.


Wait, I need something in return.

And what's that?
Well, there's this person
in here who's trying to kill me.

Samantha Rogers.

I need protection.

And I know you're, like,
the only person in here
who can do that, so
seems fair.

Here's a tip.

If you need something,
you might want to hold on
to your leverage.

I'll do anything.


You have a visitor.

C-Can you go with me?
I can't exactly get there on my own.

Excuse me.
Uh, can you see
if my friend is coming?
They said they'd
let her know I was here.

Murphy Mason.

Mason, Murphy.


Do not try me!
You're not supposed to be here.

Where's Murphy?
What did you do to her?

Girl's so scared,
she won't even leave her cell.

It's time to go.

I swear to God, if you touch
one hair on her head
- You're adorable.

- I'm gonna
I'll tell her you said hello.

Even one strand of hair!

Oh, of course.
I'll be right there.


You're going back in?
Mm-hmm, just for a couple of hours.

Apparently, I have to interrogate
a bunch of sorority girls.

Oh, literal nightmare.

I really wanted to take
you to my old lunch spot.

I had a whole plan.

Oh, as yummy as a beef patty sounds
- Jamaican beef patties!
- Jamaican beef patties.

I'm telling you, they're life-changing.

I also wanted to show you
around the old neighborhood.

You're feeling awfully nostalgic.

Nah, I just
been thinking
a lot about Tyson lately.

We used to go eat lunch
there all the time.

I don't know.

I've been living life outside the game,
and I realized
he never got to.

Just sucks.
I don't know.

I'm so sorry.

None of that is your fault.


Well, hopefully these interrogations
- don't take too long.

- Mm-hmm.

Maybe you can text me
the address of the patty place
and I can meet you around 2:00.


- Okay.

- Mm, mm-mm.


I swear to God, they're not
calling me in Saturday.

It's ours.

Where did you girls get these pills?
Look, I don't know, okay?
Maybe one of the frats snuck them in?
I've literally never done drugs
in my life.

Look, you've been asking me
the same question for an hour.

I don't know where the pills came from.

- None of us know.

- All right.

You go ahead, wait outside.

- Hey.

- There you are.

Gran has been freaking out.

So, things with Murphy are bad.

Things are really bad.

Like, so bad.

Turns out, Sam's been in there with her,
so we got to bail her out, like, now.

Felix says hi.

She's gonna have to come
out of there eventually.

None of them knew anything?
They expect us to believe that?
Sororities are weird.

It's the whole pledge thing.

They stick together.

- Mm.

- How'd it go?
Oh, swell.

Any luck on subpoenaing the phones?
Yeah, but it's gonna take a few
weeks to restore
texts and stuff from the cloud.

Checking their apps
would be a lot quicker.

Maybe they didn't pay
cash for the pills.

They can't be that stupid.

Well, how much cash do you two
have in your wallets right now?
All right, worth a shot.

I have another thought.

We need to find the person
in charge, right?
And I remembered,
Nia ran her entire organization
from behind bars.

It might be a good idea to
keep an eye on the prisons.

There's cameras everywhere.

It'd be easy enough for them
to feed us the livestreams
to our computers.

I thought you were done with Murphy.

This has nothing to do with her.

She just happens
to also be in prison right now?
Fine, don't do it.

Look, I'm just trying
to widen the net here.

Are you sure that's
the right job for you, Josh?
- Considering your
- Listen, I'm losing my sight.

I haven't lost it.

All right.

Go ahead, then.

What? Hey, it's worth a shot.

We got nothing.

You just gave him license
to spy on Murphy.

He's not gonna spy on Murphy.

It can't be that hard.

To get 200 grand
at the drop of a hat? Sure.

This is your fault, Les.

If you had just shown up
at her bail hearing,
she wouldn't be in this mess.

If you all didn't crash at my house,
I would have been at her bail hearing.

Hey, guys, guys, stop.

Let's try to come up with a plan.

Thanks, Max.
Cool chime-in.

But to your point, I think my plan of
Robbing these people
Is the best we got so far.

With your sleight-of-hand magic?
I'm really good.

I can steal a bunch
of watches and stuff.

- Mm.

- You don't believe me?
Here, shake my hand.

Hi, Felix Bell.
Nice to meet you.

How have you been by the way?

- Easy.

- No boom.

Fencing some like that, you'd
get ten cents on the dollar.

Okay, so say I get a $30,000 Rolex.

That's $3,000.

- All I need is
- That's 66 watches.

This is dumb.

I have another idea.

Where are you going?
Wait, you actually valeted?
Of course not.

Then what the hell are you doing?
- Watch and learn.

- I can't wait for this.

- Ticket?
- Yeah.

You know
you know, I think I might've lost it.

Those are my keys.

Mine's the Rover, yeah.

Thank you.

Dude, you're not gonna get
20OK for a used car.

- Obviously, I know that.

- Then what are you doing?
I am a problem solver.

I'll be back soon
with everything I need.

No, you are not doing this.

She'll tip you.

I'll stick with him.

What? No.

- This is not okay.

- Agreed.

- But here we are, so
- Hello?
This is a solo mission.

Not anymore.

I think this is the
stupidest idea in the world!
I don't care what you think!
Murphy is going to die,
and this is all we have,
so we are driving to this
rich person's house,
whoever they are.

Felix, we're not gonna break
into some stranger's house.

It's not breaking in
if you have their house key.

Uh, no, it actually is,
so let's try
and figure something else out.

There is nothing else!
And my best friend is stuck in prison
with someone who is determined
to kill her,
and there's nothing you guys can
do or say that's gonna stop me.

I'm happy to let you
out of the car if you want.

- Recalculating.

- 48 minutes?
How is it going up?!
Mason, lunch.

I-I'm actually so sick.

I've been puking all day.

You get used to the food eventually.

Let's go.
Come on.

Where you going? Hey.


I just need to get by.

What's going on?
Somebody, help me!
Why isn't there another angle?
You didn't get to see
Nia's face when she died.

But I get to see yours.

- We got to dip!
- What the hell?
- This has always been a safe spot.

- The guards are everywhere!
South hallway, code 16.

No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No!

You got to be kidding me.

I know, it's been a minute.

You good?
Always, though, always, though.

How about you, though, how's business?
I wouldn't know.

For real?
Yeah, feels pretty great.

Okay, so what do you say now?

You know, I got some feelers
out there, though.

Okay, that's blessed
for you, man, for real.

Thanks, man.

I'll take my usual.

Hey, don't even trip, this one's on me.

I got you.


Yo, how many of those did you eat?
- Five.

- Yo.

I haven't had 'em in a while.

These taste almost
as good as your mom's.

I miss her cooking.


I miss
everything about her.

How's she holding up?
You dick.

You haven't even been by.

I don't even know what I'd say.

You're a family man.

She knows that.

She'd love to see you.

Hey, come on.

Girl stood you up.

You ain't got nothing better to do.

She didn't stand me up.

- Oh, really? Sure.

- Shut up!
Hey, Auntie.


I, um
I brought you this.

They're not as good as yours, but
I know.

I haven't been around.

I'm not dealing anymore.

Well, good for you.

I'm so sorry.

About everything, I
My son is dead because of you.

And you have the audacity
to show up at my door
with some weak-ass apology,
bragging about how you ain't
in the game no more?
Boy, you better get
the hell out of here.

Your words mean nothing to me.

mean nothing to me.

Hey! Hey!
Chicago PD.
I've been
calling and calling.

Why does no one here answer the phone?
Sorry, we're on lockdown.

Yeah, I saw one of your inmates
got stabbed.

- Murphy Mason.

- Yeah, we're on top of it.

Top of
Well, clearly you're not! Is she okay?
She will be she's being
taken care of in the infirmary.

She could have died, and she can't!
She can't get off that easy!
She, she's gonna pay for what she did.

So do your job better!
Sir, like I said, we're on top of it.

And with all due respect,
you are not my boss.

So please go.
I have actual work to do.

Actual work, what, like,
stacking these chairs?
Yeah, that's real important.

Do your job.

I can't get anything through.

This place is gonna be
on lock for a while.

Two stabbings in one week.

The warden came down hard on us.

What am I supposed to do?
The COs know your crew.

Nothing's getting through.

So just lay low until things loosens up.

You know me better than that.


You weren't joking
about needing protection, huh?
Well, you might be able to do
something for me,
and if you can,
you'll never be in here again.

I'll do anything.

My normal delivery method
has come to an unexpected halt
due to my girls
being in the guards' sights.

Maybe you can fix that.

I can figure it out, don't worry.

Well, it looks
like you don't have much time.

And neither do I, so
Okay, there's got to be
200 grand worth of
stuff in there, right?
Art, cash, jewelry, whatever.

Just got to get it and
Easy peasy.

I'll do it.
I can be in and out.

No, no, no.
This is me.

Dude, your face.

What? Why? Is there something on it?
You think maybe they have cameras?

Right, uh
okay, I don't have
Les, give me your stockings.

Oh, my God.


Ugh, disgusting.

How's this?

Uh, so, yeah, I
I, uh, I'm feeling a lot better.

I should be getting back
on my feet here pretty soon.

Yeah, by the grace of God,
it was just a surface wound.

No, actually,
it wasn't God who saved me.

It was the guards.
But, uh, my point is,
I'm gonna be needing a cane.

We don't have any canes.

Uh, well, I'm disabled, and this prison
is completely and totally
inaccessible without it.

Um, I was given a guide,
but she was murdered.

So if you don't mind
- I'll see what I can do.

- Okay.

Thank you.

Jimmy McKay?
Oh, my God, this is Jimmy McKay's house.

No, n-n-n-n-no.

Don't worry.
I'm not gonna hurt you.

I-I'm not worried.

Yeah, well, y-you should be.

'Cause I-I could be armed and dangerous.

- Wait.

- Felix?
I have been in the past.

I'm a very dangerous,

What are you doing here, Caitlin?
- What are youdoing here?
- Uh
Well, I thought you were at Duke.

I graduated.

And my parents
are making me work for my uncle
on his dumb campaign.

- Huh.
Well, how about that?
- Yeah.


And why aren't you at the fundraiser?
Oh, because I have a fever.

You know, like,
a-a really bad one, too.

- Aches all over.

- Ah.

- Everywhere.

- Right.

Well, sure
- Why not?
- Why not?
Okay, but, seriously,
why are you breaking in here?
Oh, my God.
My eyes are bleeding.

Ooh, ooh, ooh!
- Look at this.
Look at this.

- What?
It's a transaction with
nothing but a lightning bolt.

Well, that's got to be something.

We should bring in whoever she paid.

I love how you announce
the obvious next move
as if it's some groundbreaking

- Just shut up and call.

- I'm just saying,
sometimes you say things, it's intense.

- Call.

- Okay.

Yeah, they were, um,
fixing the place up for some event.

Wanted to cover up a hole in the wall.

Somebody put a pool cue through it.

I didn't ask.
Just, uh,
hung a picture over it.

That's all you did, huh?
I know it was a cheat.

I didn't have any plaster.

Two of the girls that paid you
OD'd that night.

I just hung a picture of a horse,
and I left.
I swear to God.

$250 is a lot just to hang a picture.

- Mm-hmm.

- It took me a full hour.

I can show you the receipt.

All right.

An hour is only $150.

They gave me a really good tip.

Oh, they tipped you a hundred dollars?
They were drunk.
And I'm adorable.

What about the lightning bolt?
- What?
- It's what they all put on the app.

The lightning bolt.

I don't know.

Maybe 'cause they thought
I was sizzling hot.

Look what I found for you.

What is this?
A cane.

Oh, no.
No, I need a
I need a normal one that, uh,
- that folds.

- What's the difference?
I-I need one that I n
that I know how to use.

That I'm used to.
can you please get me a-a normal one?
That's all that I could find.

I gathered
it might not be your cup of tea
from your earlier comment,
but this is the only book
we had in braille.

It's the Bible.

Cool, thanks.

But I only listen to audiobooks.

I don't think we have any of those here,
but I checked and I can order
whatever you want
from the blind institute across town.

I can't imagine
how lonely you must feel.

This is sweet.

Nice try.

We should definitely
keep an eye on that Brad.

I love how you announce
the obvious next move
as if it's some
groundbreaking revelation.

You're hilarious.

We need to expand this.
bring in all the street dealers.

Well, get the kids under 18,
we can bust them for curfew.

- Get your own.

- There you are.

Look, I think Murphy's
dealing in prison.

Or at least trying to.
smuggled in drugs for Max
using her cane, right?
Well, she ordered a cane,
and she got really upset
that it wasn't hollow.

Listen, man.
This wasn't license
- to spy on Murphy.

- I wasn't.

I'm looking for drugs in prison,
- and I think she might be selling them.

- Josh, I love you,
but you got to stop
with this Murphy stuff
or you can't work here.

It's a liability at this point, man.

Why don't you just go home for the day?
What is taking him so long?
Okay, I'm sorry.

So, Felix Bell
is a drug-slinging criminal?

That's right.

And-and your best friend
is in prison for murder.

Oh, I-I can say more,
but I'd be incriminating myself.

I mean
You know, if you want
to steal from my uncle,
I got an easier way.

Come on.



Why does he have all this cash?
You're from a rich family.

Didn't your folks
always have cash on hand?
How much do you need again?
Uh 200 grand?
200 grand.
That's one.

But, like, I'm pretty broke, too,
so if you want to throw me a little,
I wouldn't say no.

And that.


She must really mean a lot to you.

- Thank you.

- No problem.

Well, I'll-I'll be in town
for the campaign, so
Yeah, we should hang.

- Yeah, sure.

- Definitely.
- Yeah.

- I-I'll walk you out.


Oh, uh, do you have, like,
a bag or something?

Yeah, stay in touch and, uh
- Okay.
Be careful.

- Yeah.

We'll, um, you know, yeah,
Yeah, exactly.

text and stuff.


Don't panic,
but that is Jimmy McKay's house.

That was Jimmy McKay's house?!
- The fundraiser guy?
- Yes, but don't worry.

I ran into Caitlin.

- Let's just go.

- Felix.

All right.
All right,
you are not driving, all right?
- Change places with me.

- Okay, well, let's get out of here.

- Okay.

- No.
- let me get out of the car fir
- Felix!
- Just go.

- Sit.
That tickles.

Ow! Ow! I'm sorry.

No, you should've gone first,
- and then I should've jumped over.

- Max, fast.


Did you know Caitlin's in coll
- uh, graduated college?
- Oh, my God.

Hey, nurse?
- Yes, dear.

- Oh.

You were right.

I am lonely.

I really am.
I, uh
I have a friend in here, Paula, and I
I really would love for her
to be able to come visit me.


I'll try to arrange that.



- Got a couple more files for you.

- Ooh.

- Multiple priors, right?
- I think so.

I told you, I need something
on them or they won't talk.

This one's no good,
but the rest should work.

- See you tomorrow.

- Yeah.

One of these kids should know something.

Sorry I'm late.
Traffic was brutal.

You okay?

I'm telling you,
you're gonna feel so much better
when you get a job you like.

- Yeah.

- I'm sorry,
again, about lunch.
Things at
work are just insane right now.

Hey, what are you doing?
- You know you can't look at those.

- I know.

I know, but what is this?
These are all just kids.

Yeah, there's a new drug on the street.

We're trying to figure out
where it's coming from.

So, what, you-you think
one of these children
- is your big kingpin?
- No, of course not.

We're just trying to find a way in.

Just leave them alone.

You don't know their situation.

I know they're dealing drugs.

Yeah, for someone.

And they're never gonna roll on 'em,
so whatever charges
you're threatening them with,
they'll just take.

Look, adding to their rap sheet
is only gonna make it harder
for them to get out.

- What am I supposed to do?
- Go after whoever
is taking advantage of them.

You know, the me.

Well, that's what I'm trying to do.

And we should not be talking about this.

Hey, I like you.

And I like my job.

We both know this is complicated,
so I'll try my best
not to leave my files lying around,
but if I do, please
don't look at them, okay?

I'll order some food.



- You all right?
- Yeah.

All right, I got to go.

I want to be at the bail office
when it opens.

Got to say, I'm a tiny bit impressed.

Thanks, sir.

Yeah, it was good.

Oh, that's soft.

See you.

He still shouldn't be driving,
should he?
- Absolutely not.

- Yeah.

So, we're friends now?
I quite possibly could be
your best friend.

I figured out the solution
for your little problem.

Is that so?

- Books.

- Books?
You don't think we've tried books?
Tabs in covers? Pills
in hollowed-out pages?
They know what to look for.

I'm talking about audiobooks.

You could hide, like, a thousand pills
in the sleeves of those cases,
and I bet they'll never check.

I'm just a sweet, innocent blind girl
trying to read The Great Gatsby.

Guess we could try it.


But if it doesn't work
and I lose all that product
I know.

You'll kill me.


Okay, here's how it's gonna go.

I'm gonna order an audiobook.

The prison has to get it from this place
called the Chicago Institute
for the Blind.

Have your guys go there when it opens
and pack the book
with whatever product you need.

I'll let you know
which book I order
so they'll know which one
to put the pills in.

The covers are hollow,
so there should be plenty
of space for your product.

Just make sure it's packed tight
so it doesn't shake.

I'll let you know as soon as I have it.

But listen to me.

I'm holding on to my leverage this time.

You get this done,
Sam will never touch a hair
on your pretty, little head.

No one will.

Hey, where's my book?
I ordered a book.

It should have been here.

Nothing's ever on time.

- Mason.

- Yeah?
- Yes.
You have my book?
- Even better.

You're going home.

You made bail.

Oh, my God.

Oh, God.

Um, I o I, uh
I ordered an audiobook from the library,
and it hasn't arrived,
so if it gets here
and I'm and I'm gone,
then what happens to it?
That's what you're thinking
about? You should be planning
your first meal, kid.

But, seriously,
what happens to the book?
I don't know.

They probably just return it.

I'll pack up all the
stuff from your cell,
and I'll meet you out back.
All right?
And you will let her know?
Of course.

'Cause I promised her
that we'd listen
to Pride and Prejudice together,
and I don't want her to think
that I bailed.

Well, if she's really
your friend, she won't care.

She's just going to be
happy that you got out
- and you're safe.

- But you will tell her?
That it never arrived?
That I never got it?
- I promise.

- That I-I never got it.

- It didn't arrive.

- I promise.

You're so thoughtful.

On the gate.

Okay, I-I This is
I can walk.


Watch your step.

Thank you.

Please don't forget.

Please, please, please
- don't forget to tell her.

- Okay.
I promise.

Thank you.

- Take care, hon.

- Come on.

- That's all your stuff.

- Oh, thank you.

Hi, buddy.

Oh, I missed you.

You okay?
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.

- Did Sam
No, I'm fine.
Better than fine.

I can't believe you did this.

- Of course.
It's you.

- Oh!
Thank you.

Oh, God.

- Are you sure you're okay?
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.

- What's wrong?
- Yeah, I'm good.

- No, I'm good.

- What is it?
- I'm fine.

- All right.

I'm good.
Come on, Pretzel.

- Oh, I missed you.

- I missed you, too.

Thank you.

- That place sucks.

- Yeah.

It was so bad.
You would die.
