La Femme Nikita (1997) s03e16 Episode Script

I Remember Paris

How did it go?
There were four. We let one live.
- Was that on the profile?
- No, we found an assembly tracker on him.
He may be on a higher tier
than we expected.
And the relay site?
We collected everything relevant
then took it out.
Good. Work this guy up.
Let's find out who he is.
Mr. Tyco.
You were detained
during a routine sweep
of a Glass Curtain relay site.
Under normal circumstances,
you would have been eliminated
along with the three others
we found there.
But we detected the electronic signature
of a signal tracker.
- What were you doing with it?
- I'm not sure what you're talking about.
Could you describe it?
If you'd like,
you can set the tone of this interrogation.
I can assure you, however,
that our way is more direct
and less painful.
I see your point.
I suppose you're probably right but
if I tell you about this tracker
are you going to kill me?
Most likely, unless there's anything else.
But it will happen quickly
and you won't feel anything.
That's good
'cause I'm not really fond of pain.
- What do you have?
- I ran this guy's prints in scan.
ID'd him on the first pass. Boris Tyco.
Glass Curtain recruited him last year.
He was working
on an oil platform in the Caspian Sea.
- Last year?
- Yeah, that's the anomaly.
How does a member of the freshman class
get one of these?
A signal tracker.
We've only found these
on third tier or higher, which is not Boris.
- Where was he before the Caspian Sea?
- He was not affiliated.
Keep looking.
Yeah. Try it that way.
- What did Madeline find out about Tyco?
- I don't know. She's still in with him.
She is?
Go to CNT. Now.
Close all level access points.
We have a grade two breach.
Antonia, cycle down all local processes.
Kill anything that's not vulnerable.
Get Medical to Containment.
Now. Madeline's down.
What's two pulses?
Breach. There's a hostile loose.
- What's the contingency?
- It should be on your panel.
- How's your breathing?
- I'm fine.
Get her up to Medical now.
It's not necessary. We have to find Tyco.
Do you have the lock
on the Encryption Class?
No. Why?
I can't get at it. Someone synchronized it.
He's rewired I-O.
He's going to transmit.
Reroute the bit stream.
Throw a security exception. Do it fast.
Who's in G4?
- Is anyone up there?
- I am.
- Michael, he's up there somewhere.
- I know.
All right, I'll send in a team.
I need a unit on Level 4 now.
No. Seal us off.
Are you sure?
They can be there in 20 seconds.
Now, before he moves.
Why can't you pinpoint the sector?
He's taken out a bank of monitors.
I'm tracking him through his activities.
He's running a sequence of patches.
- For what?
- L-O.
- He's trying to transmit?
- Shut down the system.
I can't. We're running Vibar off it.
Damn it.
Are you getting this, Siobhan?
- How does it look?
- Complete.
Well done, Boris, wherever you are.
Probably dead by now.
Section One, chapter and verse
from their directory
to their list of subcontractors
every operation, past and present.
The whole enchilada.
- They embedded a code.
- What?
All the data's there but we won't be able
to read until we decrypt.
How long?
I don't know yet, maybe two or three days.
There's a lot of stuff here.
The good news is I think I've got one thing
off the header that's non-encrypted.
- Yeah, I got it.
- What is it?
The location of Section One.
- Tyco's dead.
- The depth of the breach?
We don't know everything yet
but we do know he tapped into Comm.
This was a well-choreographed plan.
Even his capture
must have been expected.
Whoever's behind this
has substantial resources.
I'll check the initial intel, see who fed us.
Birkoff's already on it.
We're going to brief
in Systems in 10 minutes.
- This isn't good, is it?
- No.
- What's going on?
- I don't know yet.
Tech's all over 6 and 7.
I've never seen anything like this before.
He may have transmitted
before I got to him.
- The directory?
- Possibly.
It's not the only thing that can hurt us.
- What can I do?
- Stay in.
What about the body of the transmission?
- Birkoff encoded it.
- Will they break the code?
How soon?
With the fastest processing available,
Birkoff estimates 72 hours.
So if we do retrieve
in time, we can reprogram
and feel safe on that count.
I understand we have a three-day window.
Yes and no.
What does that mean?
- A portion of the data was not encoded.
- What is it, Birkoff?
They know where we are.
- Are you sure?
- Yes, sir.
You understand the implication of this
so I will ask you once again.
Are you sure?
Sir, I checked it nine different ways.
The data's waiting for you down in Comm.
How much time do we have?
Two hours.
Michael, work with Birkoff.
Pull off the destination
of the transmission.
You'll head the teams.
Madeline, once you're out and safe
you'll oversee Michael.
Birkoff, set a clock for 120 minutes.
What about you?
I have to work this out with George.
Prepare evacuation.
Come on, let's hurry it up, you guys.
Walter, do you need more help?
Yeah, put those panels
in that box there in the case.
Make sure they're updated.
Don't waste time signing it out.
Just take it and run.
So what's going to happen?
- What's going to happen?
- I don't know.
Can I have everyone's attention?
Please stop what you're doing.
Each of you is to go
to your primary anchor points.
These locations should be
secure for 71 hours.
We'll communicate on
the alternate net with you.
Those who are active will receive
your assignments on your panels.
You have 49 minutes left to evacuate.
Good luck.
- Sir, I was on my way to come see you.
- What is it?
Tyco was fed to us intentionally.
- By whom?
- Freddy Allen.
Who is that?
An arms dealer out of Norway
we use periodically.
Does he have the resources
to do this on his own?
- No, he was definitely contracted.
- How soon can we get him?
He fell off our radar a couple days ago.
We're working on it.
How much of Comm. Have you
been able to salvage?
Only 25%.
So basically, we're going
to be without resources.
All right, pack it up and get out of here.
- Is everyone out?
- Yes.
- How much time?
- Three minutes.
Let's go.
You've been here
for how many years, Michael?
I came here 24 years ago.
- Yes.
- I'm so glad you're home.
Mick. Come in.
I could really use a huge favor.
I've got this potential fresh kill
coming in this afternoon.
Only I haven't closed on her yet
and I could use an assist.
Hello? That's new. I love it.
Put that down, please.
- So what is it you need?
- I told you.
I've got this bird coming over.
See my etchings, you know.
Now, it will greatly add
to the impression
if you could be there when she arrives.
You're the model.
- Hello.
- Josephine.
Yeah, I'm here.
Location Beta. Protocol 6.
- Are we picking up a hostile?
- Yes, go.
So what do you think? Double date?
What's wrong?
I can't talk about it right now, Mick.
But if I were you, I'd go home. I'd lie low.
And you're going to have
to cancel your date.
What do you mean lie low?
You should disappear
until you hear from me.
Where am I going to go?
I'm sure you'll find somewhere.
I've got to go.
How's it going?
My parser is eating away at their key.
This is going to work.
We're going to crack this thing.
Just as long as
we don't run out of candy bars.
Shall I get Tommy to go on another run?
Yeah, more patties.
Yum-yum. More patties.
What happened
to the second layer of data?
Very useful.
Names and addresses
of all their operatives in central Europe.
That's what that was. I didn't even read it.
You don't even care what we're doing here
do you, Siobhan?
God help us if the other side
has more candy.
Where are we on everything?
Michael went to pick up Nikita.
They're bringing in a hostile.
What's our status?
42 operatives are unaccounted for.
17 are confirmed dead.
Not so bad.
They're here. Let them in.
At the rate they're taking apart our files
they should be getting
close to the Far East.
I've already informed Kyoto.
They'll handle it.
Take him to Containment.
I want him broken within the hour.
Do you have anything we can use?
- A few chemicals. Not much.
- Use whatever is available.
Just don't kill him until he talks.
I winged the driver before he got away.
I was able to get
some blood samples from the ground.
Look around.
If you find a lab, let me know.
- Was that really necessary?
- He's losing everything he really cares for.
What do you want me to do?
I have to run some satellite data.
You can help me.
- Walter.
- Yeah, Birkoff?
- What's going to happen?
- What do you mean?
We're going to get all the bad guys
and we'll all live happily ever after.
- Where?
- Hell if I know.
This is my first incineration.
- Have there been others?
- You never know what to believe.
But I like Paris.
You'll visit.
The prisoner broke.
We may have a location on Freddy Allen.
- Where?
- Montreal. He's using an alias.
- Good.
- Who should I send?
- I'll take it.
- Why would you do that?
- You're needed here.
- Comm. Isn't fully operational.
- I need to control this one.
- You're not expendable.
If we don't find Freddy Allen soon
we'll all be expendable.
Nikita, come with me.
- Where are we going?
- To find Freddy Allen.
- I don't understand.
- As of now, everyone's an operative.
What other names does Allen use?
Do you have it?
For this cover, he's using Pierre Brogan.
And he's part of a syndicate
that owns the gallery?
Limited partner,
and he officially withdrew in April.
You know, it's possible
he's just an art lover
and the people associated
with the gallery are clean.
No one is clean.
I've tolerated enough of your soft-pedaling
over the years, but not today.
We have zero margin for error.
I'll kill 10 innocents to get to Allen
and you'll do the same.
Put primary teams on standby.
Frankel, stand by. We're going in.
No, I spoke to Mario this morning.
It's on its way.
It should be in by Monday. Fine.
Sorry, we don't take solicitation.
I represent David Florimbi.
Since when?
Since September
when he left Adam's agency.
So I'm looking for
a new place to hang
some of his new pieces.
I gave up on David a long time ago.
- I'm surprised I didn't hear about the split.
- It wasn't exactly announced.
Look, I don't need to see his stuff.
I'm interested.
Is David in town?
No, he's not
but he did want me to discuss
some terms directly with Pierre.
Pierre doesn't really work
for the gallery as such.
Mr. Matteo is the man
you should speak to.
He's on with a client right now
but I'm sure he'll want to talk to you.
I'd really like to discuss this
directly with Pierre.
- Do you have a contact number for him?
- No, we don't.
Don't ask any questions.
Just leave the gallery right now.
- So, Mr. Matteo's upstairs then?
- Excuse me, sir what are you doing?
Where is Pierre Brogan? Where is he?
- I don't know.
- Who's here?
- Mr. Matteo.
- Where is he?
- He's upstairs.
- Bring her.
If I were you, I'd cooperate with him.
Give him all the information, you'll be fine.
- I promise no harm will come to you.
- What are you going to do with me?
Hang up.
Who the hell are you? What's going on?
We don't have money here.
Now listen carefully.
You are going to tell me
where Pierre Brogan is
or I'm going to kill you
and your assistant right here.
I don't know where he is.
Check his records.
There's nothing here.
There's two sets of books.
- That has nothing to do with Brogan.
- I don't know anything about this.
The gallery was going broke.
We had to do some business on the side
to keep things going.
- You mean, Brogan did it.
- I didn't know what it was.
He floated us some cash and kept us open.
- Who else?
- I don't know any other players.
- Where is he?
- I don't know.
Tell me!
- I don't know!
- Tell me!
I don't know!
Get out of my way, Nikita.
He's telling the truth.
What did I say on the street?
No one is clean.
Killing her is not going to make him talk.
We'll find out.
- Now there's no reason to kill her.
- She's seen us.
She does not know Brogan.
Look at yourself.
You talk about all the innocent people
we protect.
You got one sitting right in front of you
and you're going to kill her.
We have less than 16 hours.
Primary team, stand down.
There's nothing here.
- Who's reported in?
- Everyone. We've come up empty.
How is that possible?
Somehow, Freddy Allen
segregated himself from all of our sources.
- He could be dead.
- I hope not.
Right now, he's our only link
to whoever's responsible for this.
- What about the NSA sheets?
- Too many names.
Nothing for me to work with
given the time restraint.
- That's why we need Allen.
- Did you get the blood work back?
Yeah. There are no matches.
What blood work?
I wanted to follow up
on the driver I wounded yesterday.
I had a field kit.
Birkoff uploaded the data to the CIA.
Why were you wasting
your time with that?
It only took two minutes.
There was nothing to lose.
Only something to gain.
You're not here to think.
You're not here to plan strategy.
You're here to do whatever I tell you to do.
The Section runs simply.
The people who are trained to think, think.
The people who are trained to fight, fight.
Why I am I always having to remind you
where you stand?
Doll face, there you are.
Got your message.
- Sounded a bit frazzled.
- Mick, I can't talk right now.
You asked me to find someone.
- I found him.
- What do you mean?
Freddy Allen. The laddie himself.
I've got a lock on him.
I'm going to make you a star,
you know that?
I'm going to make you both stars, okay?
- We got him.
- Good. For you.
The class methods rolled over.
Indeed, that is good news.
- What's it mean?
- We're six hours away.
- Have you contacted the cleaning crews?
- Yeah, they're ready to roll it up.
Once we have the key codes
to their satellite comm
we'll be able to use
their own weapon systems against them.
Good. Six hours.
What to do?
There he is.
- Are you sure?
- Of course I'm sure.
As soon as I heard Section was in trouble
I spared no expense.
I used only quality contacts, Michael.
- Who's he traveling with?
- His own security.
How many?
- Four, six shooters, two monitoring comm.
- Six confirmed.
Prepare for twice that.
As soon as
the plane clears the first building
close off all access to the tarmac,
then send in Tactical.
Have you ever met this guy?
Yeah, sure, you know what I mean.
I know everyone.
Freddy and I go back
to club days in Piccadilly.
Stay close. You'll ID him for us.
- Do you see him?
- Hold on.
No. Yeah. There he is.
Beige topcoat.
Teams Two and Three, secure the limo.
He's on the back right, against a window.
Everyone else contain the jet.
- Bloody hell.
- Go.
Who are you people?
You hired Boris Tyco to do a job.
On behalf of whom?
Errol Sparks.
Where is he?
We're just minutes away.
Yeah, I can let you have that.
And I'll tell you who has hostage value.
You're going to have to prioritize.
We're going to have
an embarrassment of riches here.
- What was that?
- I don't know.
Did we lose anything?
No, we're okay.
Nothing. Everything's all right.
So, look,
all I need from you is the money
and the assurance
that the addresses that I sent to you
are the first ones that you wipe out.
That's right.
I'm just another disgruntled postal worker.
What's going on?
Walter, I thought
Sparks died two years ago
when we took over
the Marrakech substation.
We all did. But he escaped.
- I'll see you later, sugar.
- See you.
So, we live to fight another day.
- Where?
- Not here.
Oversight will select a location.
- Where are we going to go until it's ready?
- They're ready now.
Four compounds have already been built.
They're starting a fifth in the fall.
- Thank you.
- For what?
You're competent
and you keep your wits about you
under fire.
I tend towards impatience.
Doesn't always work as well in the field.
Sometimes I do things differently
than what you would like.
But I've set boundaries for myself
and if I was to work
outside those boundaries
I couldn't live with myself.
I appreciate that, Nikita,
but it's not about you, your boundaries
and it's not about me and my impatience.
I know. It's about the Section, right?
I know most operatives
think about what they do here
as nothing more
than indentured servitude.
As a way to stay alive.
If I could just impart
how I feel about this place.
This is my backup.
Put it in Systems for now.
- Walter.
- Yeah?
We have any three-gauge
fiber-optic cable?
I saw some about an hour ago.
I'll take a look.
What do you think of this place?
- I don't like the way it smells.
- Why? What does it smell like?
New. I don't like anything new.
In fact, I don't like change.
- They've built your new system organizer.
- What do you mean?
Look at that.
Now, that I do like.
All right.
The system's been restored
except for two missions in Africa
which we can handle manually
until we're 100%.
Did Harrison receive the requisition?
Yes. His unit should arrive
in Dover by morning.
Don't leak that one to Committee.
- I want to see how it plays out first.
- Done.
It's been a strange week.
That's one way to put it.
I don't know what was more unusual:
Operations blowing up Section
or you coming to dinner again.
- I didn't choose to stay away.
- But you did.
So what's changed?
Maybe enough time has passed.
Maybe too much
time has passed, Michael.
I hope not.
Thank you.
So why are you here now?
I missed you.
