Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001) s08e15 Episode Script

Alpha Dog

(male announcer) IN NEW YORK CITY'S WAR ON CRIME, THE WORST CRIMINAL OFFENDERS ARE PURSUED BY THE DETECTIVES OF THE MAJOR CASE SQUAD.
THESE ARE THEIR STORIES.
[overlapping dialogue] [women screaming] [screaming continues] HIM.
HE'S EVERYWHERE.
DON'T LET IT RUIN OUR NIGHT.
NO, NO.
I'M FINE.
[electronic dance music] BITCHES CAN'T BELIEVE IT.
[laughs smugly] PAGE SIX WILL HAVE US RECONCILED AND ME PREGNAN BY THE MORNING.
LET'S TRY FOR IT.
[laughs] DIDN'T TAKE LONG.
AT LEAST HE'S CONSISTENT.
AMY, COME ON.
OW! LEAN ON ME.
WE'LL GO THROUGH THE KITCHEN.
NO, I'M NOT SNEAKING OUT, I CAN HIDE IT.
UH! [both panting] WHAT IS THIS, THE THIRD TIME WE'VE HOOKED UP? WHEN DO I GET TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE? I'M PLEASURE.
WHAT AM I GETTING MYSELF INTO HERE? SCARED? YOU HAVE DRAINED ME OF ALL OF MY FREE WILL.
crowd: NO DEMOLITION! NO DEMOLITION! NO DEMOLITION! LET'S GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE.
crowd: NO DEMOLITION! NO DEMOLITION! THE KRILL'S OUT EARLY TODAY.
YEAH, IN A WEEK.
THESE IDIOTS ARE HISTORY.
crowd: NO DEMOLITION! NO DEMOLITION! NO DEMOLITION! NO DEMOLITION! ALBERT, MOVE IT! NO DEMOLITION! NO DEMOLITION! HAMP.
HAMP, IT'S TERU.
YO DUDE, IT'S 9:30.
COME ON, MAN, GET UP.
TIME TO WORK THOSE MONEYMAKERS.
DUDE, YOUR BILLBOARDS ARE EVERYWHERE, MAN, EVEN PHILLY.
MY MOM CALLED THIS MORNING, AND-- OH, MY GOD.
I SHOW UP WITH COFFEE, SAME TIME EVERY DAY.
HAMP LOVED TO WORK OUT, EVEN IF HE HADN'T SLEPT.
HE LOVED HIS PILATES.
HE'D HURT HIS BACK DOING WEIGHTS.
IT WAS, UM, HIS COLOR.
THAT'S HOW I KNEW.
HE WAS DEAD.
YEAH.
I CALLED 911 AND THEY GOT HERE IN MINUTES.
OH, MY GOD.
IT WAS LESS THAN TWO HOURS AGO THAT I WALKED IN, THINKING HE WAS ALIVE.
OH, HEY.
UH, NO DRUGS.
I ALREADY CHECKED.
WHEN YOU FOUND THE DOOR OPEN, YOU DIDN'T THINK ANYTHING WAS WRONG? NO, NO.
UH, HAMP BOUGHT THIS BUILDING NOT TOO LONG AGO.
UM, HE'S GOT OFFICES ON THE FLOORS BELOW.
PEOPLE, THEY COME AND GO ALL THE TIME.
WHAT KIND OF OFFICES? HIS FILM PROJECTS.
MUSIC BUSINESS, CHARITY WORKS.
ANY THOUGHTS ON HIS CAUSE OF DEATH? WELL, BARRING A MEDICAL ANOMALY, I GUESS IT'S AN OVERDOSE.
I GUESS YOU-- YOU NOTICED THE PETECHIAL HEMORRHAGING THERE.
SUFFOCATION COULD HAVE RESULTED FROM A REFLUX CAUSED BY THE DRUG INGESTION.
WELL, I DIDN'T SMELL VOMIT.
I'LL HOLD OFF JUDGMEN UNTIL AFTER I CRACK HIS CHEST.
THIS IS MEMORY FOAM.
THE PILATES INSTRUCTOR MENTIONED HE HAD A BAD BACK.
DO YOU NOTICE THE BIG INDENTATIONS THERE? MAYBE MADE FROM THE KNEES, AND SMALLER ONES HERE, SEE? SO HE WASN'T ALONE, AND APPARENTLY, HE WAS LIVING UP TO HIS REPUTATION.
WE'LL BAG EVERYTHING FOR SEMEN AND FLUIDS.
CAN YOU LIGHT THAT INDENTATION ON THE PILLOW? WELL, THAT'S NO SHROUD OF TURIN, BUT-- IT'S DEFINITELY HIS FACE.
SO EITHER HE SLEPT FACE DOWN, OR SOMEONE PUSHED HIM INTO THE PILLOW.
MAYBE FORCED HIM DOWN HARD ENOUGH TO SUFFOCATE HIM.
YOU, UH-- MAYBE FINISH YOUR COFFEE? THANK YOU.
IT WAS HOT WHEN YOU ARRIVED HERE? YEAH, UH, I NEVER BRING HAMP COLD COFFEE.
JUST SEEMS TO BE ROOM TEMPERATURE NOW.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN HERE? IT'S BEEN MORE THAN TWO HOURS SINCE I GOT HERE.
YEAH? MAYBE FOUR HOURS AGO? SO BEFORE YOU CALLED 911-- I CALLED AMY, HIS EX-WIFE.
I DIDN'T WANT HER TO SEE I ON THE NEWS.
AND THEN AMY CLEANED OU THE DRUGS.
YEAH.
YEAH.
[overlapping chatter, siren] I DID IT TO PROTECT HIM FROM A FEEDING FRENZY.
DO YOU HAVE TO DO THIS NOW? SHE'S JUST LOST HER HUSBAND.
HUSBAND? WASN'T THERE A BITTER DIVORCE? I LOVED HAMP.
WE WERE TRYING FOR RECONCILIATION.
WHY DID HAMP LIVE AT HIS LOFT? THEY WERE GIVING EACH OTHER SOME SPACE.
I SEE YOU PLAYED VENEFICA.
YOU PRONOUNCED IT RIGHT.
PRODUCERS WANTED TO CHANGE IT.
HUH? ANCIENT ROMAN WOMEN THAT WERE SORCERESSES, THEY KILLED MEN BY THE ACT OF LOVE.
IF THE AUDIENCE HAS YOUR ERUDITION, I'LL HAVE A HIT.
THIS ONE HERE, YOU'RE AN OLYMPIC SKIER.
WHEN WAS THAT? EXTREME MEASURES, UM THREE YEARS AGO? OH, THAT'S AROUND THE SAME TIME YOU SPLIT WITH HAMP.
YES.
BUT OUR FEELINGS WERE VERY STRONG.
WE WANTED IT TO WORK.
THE NEWS SAID YOU LEFT THE CLUB EARLY.
YOU WEREN'T HAVING FUN? MY HIP WAS BOTHERING ME, SO I COULDN'T DANCE.
YEAH, I NOTICED THAT, YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE A SLIGHT LIMP.
MAKING EXTREME MEASURES, IFELL DOING MY OWN STUNTS.
SOMETIMES STRESS CAUSES IT TO HURT.
MM.
WHAT WAS STRESSFUL LAST NIGHT? WHAT'S BETWEEN THEM IS VERY PERSONAL.
SO'S HOMICIDE.
AND I ASKED HER.
SOMEONE MURDERED HAMP? WE'RE TRYING TO DETERMINE THAT.
BUT REMOVING EVIDENCE DOESN'T HELP US.
IN FACT, IT'S A FELONY.
I TOLD YOU WHY I DID IT.
A MAN THAT I LOVED IS DEAD.
SO I DON'T HAVE TO TOLERATE THIS.
IT'S ENOUGH.
THE COLOR OF PASSION, THAT'S YOU, BABY.
WITH HER HAIR AND COMPLEXION, FABULOUS.
YOU'RE SWEET.
POLICE.
FORMERLY.
I'M NOW IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR.
I AM SO CURIOUS ABOU HAMP TROTTER.
THERE'S A RUMOR HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN MURDERED.
YEAH, I DON'T-- SUCH A GREAT GUY.
HE CAME IN HERE A NUMBER OF TIMES.
WHAT A SHAME.
HE WOULD COME WITH ALL THESE WOMEN.
HUH.
REAL TRAGEDY.
MM-HMM.
YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE THE GIFTS HE BUYS FOR WOMEN.
OR HE USED TO, RATHER.
RIGHT.
WHAT A GREAT GUY.
CAN YOU JUST-- JUSTHOLD ON.
GALLA! GALLA! SO THERE'S TALK, BABY.
YOU CAN'T LET IT GET TO YOU.
IT'S NOT WHAT I WANTED, STASH.
STUFF HAPPENS.
THE EVIDENCE THAT THEY HAD, IT'S NOT WHERE THEY CAN FIND IT, YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE I'M LOOKING OU FOR YOU.
I HOPE YOU CAN APPRECIATE THAT.
YEAH? GOOD.
'CAUSE WHEN I LOOK ACROSS THAT TABLE, I WANNA SEE YOU WEARING THOSE LITTLE RUBIES.
[growls playfully] WE'LL BE BACK.
COME ON.
IT'S STILL NOT OFFICIALLY A HOMICIDE, BUT I HAD TO PUT ON EXTRA PEOPLE TO HANDLE THE CALLS.
WE RAN A PAPARAZZI BLOCKADE AT AMY'S APARTMENT.
RELATIVE TO THAT, HER MANAGER CALLED COMPLAINING THAT MY DETECTIVES WERE AGGRESSIVE WITH A GRIEVING WIDOW.
DOES WIDOW APPLY IF THEY WERE DIVORCED? I THINK THEY STARTED RUMORS OF RECONCILIATION TO PROMOTE HER NEW FILM.
THREE YEARS AGO, SHE WAS A RISING STAR, HE WAS THE UNKNOWN MALE MODEL WHO MARRIED HER.
AMAZING HOW A SET OF ABS AND SOME LUCK CAN TURN THINGS AROUND.
I WOULD IMAGINE SOME ENEMIES COME WITH SUDDEN FAME.
WHO DID HAMP CLIMB OVER ON HIS WAY TO THE TOP? YOU KNOW, HAMP ACTUALLY HAD A REPUTATION FOR BEING A-- A DECENT GUY.
HE WAS GENEROUS, HE EMBRACED GOOD CAUSES.
HE ALSO EMBRACED ANY WOMAN WHO GOT CLOSE ENOUGH FOR A SMELL TEST.
OPENS SOME DOORS FOR MOTIVE.
WE'LL BE RIGHT DOWN.
WE'VE ALREADY HAD SECURITY ISSUES.
CAUGHT ONE OF OUR TRANSFER PEOPLE TRYING TO TAKE PHOTOS OF THAT WHICH MADE HIM LEGENDARY.
THEY COULD DEFINITELY IGNITE A BIDDING FRENZY ON eBAY.
VERY TASTEFULLY STATED, CAPTAIN.
NOW, CAUSE OF DEATH.
DETECTIVE GOREN ONCE AGAIN HAS AN IRRITATING WAY OF BEING RIGHT.
HE SUFFOCATED.
NO INTERNAL BRUISING ON HIS THROAT, NO LIGATURE MARKS, BUT FINGERTIP BRUISES ON HIS NECK AND LOWER SCALP WITHIN THE HAIRLINE.
HIS FACE WAS FORCED INTO THE PILLOW.
HE'S A BIG STRONG GUY.
THERE WERE NO SIGNS OF A STRUGGLE.
WELL, WITH WHAT HE HAD IN HIS SYSTEM, HE COULD BEST BE DESCRIBED AS TOTALLY MALLEABLE.
SINUSES HAD RESIDUE OF COCAINE AND SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNTS OF OXYCONTIN.
WELL, OXYCONTIN IS A TIME RELEASE PILL AND IT'S GROUND AND INHALED.
IT HAS AN IMMEDIATE EFFECT.
MM-HMM.
SOMNOLENCE, BRADYCHARDIA.
DRUG ALONE COULD HAVE KILLED HIM.
IT'S USUALLY USED FOR LONG-TERM PAIN MANAGEMENT.
SO IT COULD HAVE BEEN A WOMAN WITH A LIMP.
I SEE YOUR HIP MUST BE FEELING BETTER.
YOU'RE NOT LIMPING.
YEAH.
IT'S FINE.
I'M CURIOUS.
WHAT MEDICATIONS DO YOU USE FOR THE PAIN? UH, WITHOUT IMMUNITY, MY CLIENT WON'T RESPOND TO THAT.
WELL, I DON'T THINK IMMUNITY'S IN HER BEST INTEREST.
I'LL DECIDE IF IT'S HER BEST INTEREST.
SHE'S NOT RISKING A, UH, NARCOTICS CHARGE.
SHE'LL BE RISKING MORE THAN THA IF WORD OF IMMUNITY GETS TO THE TABLOIDS.
THE MEDIA WILL TRY HER FOR HAMP'S MURDER.
WAIT, YOU DON'T THINK THAT I KILLED HAMP.
YOU WENT TO HIS LOF AND REMOVED EVIDENCE.
THAT'S AN ODD REACTION WHEN YOU HEAR SOMEBODY YOU SUPPOSEDLY LOVE IS DEAD.
WELL, I ALSO CRIED.
IT TORE MY HEART OU TO SEE HIM LIKE THAT.
I NEVER WOULD HAVE KILLED HIM.
I LOVED HIM.
WE HEAR THA EVERY DAY, AMY.
IF I HAD KILLED HAMP, I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE DRUGS AT THE TIME.
THERE'S NO WAY I WOULD HAVE GONE BACK.
THAT'S A GOOD POINT.
YEAH WELL, I'VE PLAYED A MURDERESS.
I KNOW HOW THEY THINK.
RIGHT.
[chuckles] WE'RE NOT AFTER, UH, NARCOTICS CHARGES HERE.
WE'RE JUST-- WE JUST WANT TO KNOW IF OXYCONTIN WAS ONE OF THE DRUGS YOU REMOVED.
YEAH, ALONG WITH COKE AND SOME HASH.
THE OXY BOTTLE WAS MY PRESCRIPTION.
I GAVE IT TO HAMP ALONG WITH THE LECTURE.
I THINK HE HEARD ME.
WHY DO YOU SAY THAT? WELL, THE BOTTLE HAD ITS FULL PILL COUNT.
IF HE OVERDOSED ON OXY, IT WAS SOMEONE ELSE THAT GAVE IT TO HIM.
YOUR HIP BEGAN HURTING YOU AT THE PARTY.
WHAT CAUSED THAT? I HAD SEEN HER BEFORE AT PASTICHE.
SHE WAS WITH HAMP.
IKNEW HE HAD HER, AND THAT HE WANTED HER AGAIN.
SO IT WAS TIME TO LIMP ON HOME.
WHO IS SHE? DARK HAIR, BEAUTIFUL THEY'RE ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL.
ONE NOTICES DETAILS ABOUT THE OTHER WOMAN.
CLOTHES, HAIRSTYLE BLACK DRESS TO ACCENTUATE WHITE SKIN AND AGREAT BODY.
SHE HADCANARY DIAMONDS.
YOU KNOW, AT PASTICHE, SHE WAS WEARING EMERALD STUDS.
AN EARRING WHORE.
BEAUTIFUL, BIG DIAMONDS, AND HOT FOR THE HAMP? AT THAT PARTY, THE ONLY WOMAN NOT COMING ONTO HIM WAS THAT CORNER BED.
ALL LESBIANS.
YOU TALK LIKE YOU KNEW HIM.
SINCE BACK WHEN AMY PAID HIS BAR BILLS.
HE DIDN'T COME HERE FOR A WHILE AFTER THE THING WITH THE DUKE.
DUKE DEGUERIN? YOU DON'T READ PAGE SIX.
THEY NEARLY HAD A PUNCH UP.
I ESCORTED HAMP OUT.
WHAT STARTED THE FIGHT? I DON'T KNOW.
I SAW TOMMY MORGAN TALKING WITH THE DUKE.
HE MIGHT KNOW.
WHATEVER IT WAS, HE SETTLED IT DOWN.
TOMMY MORGAN.
THEATER DIRECTOR.
HE AND HAMP WERE TIGHT.
I'M IN SHOCK.
YOU KNOW? THE GUY HAD IT ALL.
IT'S UNBELIEVABLE.
YOU SPENT A LOT OF TIME WITH HIM.
YEAH.
HAMP LOVED SHARING THE WEALTH, YOU KNOW? HE'D TAKE US ALL TO ICELAND FOR SOME WILD PARTY ON A COLOGNE COMPANY JET.
YOU WERE WITH HIM AT LAXOS WHEN HE GOT IN A FIGH WITH DUKE DEGUERIN? THE POST CALLED IT A FIGHT.
IT WAS MORE LIKE A SHOVING MATCH.
HAMP WASN'T A FIGHTER.
WHAT STARTED IT? I THINK IT GOES BACK TO THAT BIKE RACE IN THE PARK.
WE'RE GETTING READY TO RIDE, AND DUKE DEGUERIN, HE COMES WALKING UP WEARING LYCRA SHORTS AND A LYCRA T-SHIRT.
AND--AND SOME PEOPLE SHOULDN'T BE WEARING LYCRA, AND HAMP LOVED BUSTING BALLS.
SO HE YELLS, "HEY.
HEY, REMIND ME TO NEVER GET OLD.
" AND DEGUERIN WENT BALLISTIC.
I MEAN, HIS WIFE AND SECURITY PEOPLE HAD TO HOLD HIM BACK.
AND THEN HAMP SAW HIM AGAIN AT LAXOS.
YEAH.
DEGUERIN CLAIMED THAT HAMP MADE SOME REMARK TO HIS WIFE.
HE SWUNG, HAMP SHOVED, AND THEN IT WAS OVER.
I TOLD HAMP HE WAS LUCKY.
WHY LUCKY? THIS ACTOR I WORKED WITH, HE WAS AT DUKE DEGUERIN'S TABLE ONE NIGHT.
ALL THESE WOMEN WERE WALKING UP TO HIM SAYING, "HEY, GREAT TEETH, BEAUTIFUL SMILE.
" LATER THAT NIGHT, THIS GUY GETS JUMPED.
HE DOESN'T GET ROBBED, JUST, YOU KNOW? NO MORE BEAUTIFUL SMILE.
ALEX.
HOW ARE YOU DOING? HEY, STASH.
[laughs] STASH BARDEM, MY PARTNER ROBERT GOREN.
STASH AND I USED TO WORK OUT OF THE ONE NINE.
YEAH, YEAH.
I TAUGHT HER EVERYTHING SHE KNOWS.
SO SHE MOVES TO MAJOR CASE, MY ARTERIES GET CLOGGED IN VICE.
OH, AS I RECALL, YOU LOVED IT.
AH WELL, EVERYTHING GETS OLD.
SO, I'M OUT.
I'M HEADING UP SECURITY FOR DUKE DEGUERIN.
SHE'S THE BEST, ROBERT.
THE BEST.
YEAH, SURE I REMEMBER.
FILLED TABLOIDS FOR A WEEK.
WHAT STARTED IT? HIS PROFANITY WITHIN EARSHO OF MY WIFE.
I ASKED HIM TO KNOCK IT OFF, HE DIDN'T, SO WE CROSSED SWORDS.
YOU HAVEN'T SEEN HIM SINCE? [scoffs] ONLY IF I LOOK OUT HERE.
HE ESPOUSES CONCERN FOR THE BEAUTY OF OUR CITY.
THEN SPREADS PORNOGRAPHY WITH THOSE BILLBOARDS.
OKAY.
ENOUGH ILL OF THE DEAD.
SO, IS THIS ARENA NOW GONNA MOVE AHEAD? AT TODAY'S MEMORIAL SERVICE, PROTESTERS WILL PRAISE HAMP AND BEAT UP ON ME.
SO NOW IS PROBABLY NO THE TIME.
"NO ONE DOES I LIKE THE DUKE.
" IT'S HAMP'S WIFE.
YOU TWO EVER CROSS SWORDS OVER THIS? YEAH, FRIENDS SAID, "LET'S PUT MONEY IN THE FILM SO WE CAN PARTY AT SUNDANCE.
" SHE JUST HAPPENED TO BE IN IT.
I HAVE NO REAL INTERES IN FILMS.
AS OPPOSED TO DEVELOPING THE ISLE OF MULL? NO, NOT MULL.
BUT CLOSE.
THE ISLE OF ISLAY.
OH, RIGHT.
ISLAY, YEAH.
WORLD FAMOUS FOR SCOTCH.
I BOUGHT THAT DISTILLERY.
GLEN KENNEBRAGH.
THE STUFF IS-- THIS IS $1,000 A BOTTLE.
$2,000.
BUT, UH, NOW IT'S MY PRIVATE STOCK.
NO LONGER FOR SALE.
HAMP TROTTER'S ON YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST? WE, WE FOUND TWO OF THOSE BOTTLES IN HIS LOFT.
WE GIVE 200 BOTTLES A YEAR TO EMPLOYEES.
MAYBE SOMEONE REGIFTED THEM.
AVIA.
MY DARLING WIFE, AVIA.
[chuckles] THESE ARE DETECTIVES, UM, GOBLIN AND, UH, SORRY.
DETECTIVE GOREN AND I'M DETECTIVE EAMES.
COULD WE GET A LIS OF THE PEOPLE WHO RECEIVED IT? YES, FIND OU WHO REGIFTED MY SCOTCH.
AND THEN I'LL FIRE THEM.
THERE'S ALMOST 200 NAMES.
WE KNOW WHO GAVE I TO HAMP.
THE DUKE'S WIFE CHEATS? THAT WOULD MAKE THE VISIT WORTHWHILE.
[cell phone rings] DUKE.
HE WANTS TO TALK.
I THINK IT'S ABOU THIS CITY CONTROLLER WHOSE SIGNATURE WE NEED.
A CITY CONTROLLER.
ALL RIGHT, A LITTLE REALITY CHECK.
WHAT WE'VE GOT WITH DUKE IS A GOOD THING.
BE MORE APPRECIATIVE.
I DIDN'T SIGN ON FOR WHAT WAS DONE TO HAMP.
AND WE KNOW NOTHING AB-- AND WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THAT.
ENOUGH SAID.
NOW YOU GET WHATEVER FEELINGS YOU HAVE UNDER CONTROL.
OKAY? TELL DEGUERIN I WANT OUT.
FOR YOUR SAKE, THAT'S THE ONE THING I'LL NEVER TELL HIM.
ORDER ME A CREME BRULEE.
HAMP TROTTER'S LOFT.
I NEED ENTRY.
THAT'S A CRIME SCENE.
THAT'S NOT EASY.
I SAID, I NEED ENTRY.
SURE.
DUKE? I'M READY.
FILTH.
YES.
I'M FILTH.
WHERE'S THE FEAR, THE SUBMISSION? I NEED TO SEE THAT.
I SWEAR, DUKE.
I'M AFRAID.
THE MEMORIAL RALLY FOR HAMP BY THE PEOPLE TRYING TO SAVE THE COLONIAL NEIGHBORHOOD.
I THINK WE SHOULD ATTEND.
TO HEAR LOCAL CELEBRITIES EULOGIZE HIM? I'M THINKING SOMEONE SPECIAL MIGHT SHOW UP.
OUR BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY WOMAN.
PROBLEM IS, HOW WOULD WE KNOW HER? WE TAKE SOMEONE WHO DOES.
HAMP KNEW THAT ALEXANDER HAMILTON WALKED THESE COBBLES.
crowd: YEAH.
HE KNEW DR.
BENJAMIN RUSH STAYED WITH HIS COUSINS IN THIS HOUSE BEHIND ME.
crowd: YEAH.
HAMP KNEW THIS BECAUSE HE LOVED, AND WANTED TO PRESERVE WHAT WE LOVE.
crowd: YEAH! GET BACK.
THIS HAS KILLED ANY THOUGHTS I'VE HAD ABOUT DOING PERSONAL SECURITY.
EASY.
NO TO THE DUKE! all: NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! THERE.
NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! THAT'S HER.
HEY HEY HEY! FILTHY STUPID LITTLE BITCH! SHE KILLED HAMP! GET HER! SHE KILLED HIM! THIS IS THE ONE-- [overlapping shouting] BREAK IT UP.
SHE KILLED HAMP! TAKE HER OUT.
TAKE HER OVER THERE.
GET OFF OF ME! LET ME THROUGH.
POLICE! LET ME THROUGH.
crowd: NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! NO TO THE DUKE! MAJOR CASE SQUAD.
THE NAME IMPLIES COMPETENCE AND JUDGMENT.
IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES SERVING AMY TOWNSEND UP TO THE RAVENOUS MEDIA FIT INTO EITHER CATEGORY? WELL, SHE SERVED HERSELF UP FOR PUBLICITY.
MORE IMPORTANTLY, IT GOT US THE IDENTITY OF A PERSON OF INTEREST.
SO TABLOIDS NOW DO OUR WORK FOR US.
GOTTA SAY, THEY'RE EFFECTIVE.
"GALLINA ILYANOVA RICHTER, 25, BORN IN BRIGHTON BEACH.
" ALL RIGHT, AN I.
D.
WHERE IS SHE? NO CURRENT ADDRESS, BUT WE'LL FIND HER.
SHE'S BEEN IN THE SYSTEM.
SHE WAS BOOKED BUT NEVER INDICTED FOR FORGERY, THEFT, PROSTITUTION.
WORKING NAME IS GALLA.
YOU REMEMBER JAMIE WITZGER? KING OF THE HIGH-END CALL GIRLS, BILLED HIMSELF AS GOD'S OWN PIMP? HE'S CURRENTLY IN RIKERS AWAITING TRIAL ON OVER A HUNDRED COUNTS OF PANDERING AND EXTORTION.
WELL, GALLA IS ONE OF HIS.
LET'S SEE IF JAMIE STAYS IN TOUCH.
I'M WAY AHEAD OF YOU.
WAY AHEAD.
YEAH.
GALLA CALLED ME ABOU THE SITUATION WITH HAMP.
SHE WAS TERRIFIED.
TERRIFIED OF WHAT? WELL, TO START WITH, SHE FORGOT BUSINESS IS ALWAYS BUSINESS.
SHE GOT HUNG UP.
HUNG UP ON HAMP TROTTER? COME ON.
THING WAS LEGENDARY.
GALLA TOLD ME IT RIVALS MY OWN.
YOU'RE LIVING UP TO OUR EXPECTATIONS, JAMIE.
JUST ROCKIN' WITH THE TRUTH, BABE.
ANYWAY, BACK TO GALLA.
SHE WAS TERRIFIED, WAS AFRAID OF-- THE DEAL WAS, SET UP HAMP TROTTER FOR A DRUG BUST.
YOU KNOW, JUST SET HIM UP.
SET HIM UP FOR WHO? NAMES? [chuckles] I'LL TALK EVENTS, BUT NAMES COULD GET HER KILLED.
GALLA WAS SUPPOSED TO BANG THE HAMP, LEAVE HIM STONED IN THE ZONE WITH A BUNCH OF DRUGS, AND SOMEONE CALLS THE TABLOIDS, RUINS HIS CAREER.
INSTEAD, HE ENDS UP DEAD.
GO FIGURE.
AND YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT.
SHE DOESN'T LIE.
IF SHE CALLS, HAVE HER GET IN TOUCH BEFORE SHE'S GRABBED UP ON MURDER CHARGES.
SHE MOURNS HIM PUBLICLY, CAT FIGHTS WITH HIS EX.
THAT'S NOT GOOD, STASH.
WELL, SHE WAS CAUGHT OFF GUARD.
WE WERE ALL CAUGHT OFF GUARD.
I MEAN, WHO KNEW THAT HAMP WAS GONNA END UP DEAD? PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY HAD A REASON TO HATE HIM.
WELL, THERE'S ALWAYS GONNA BE GUYS LIKE HAMP.
WARREN BEATTY IN HIS HEYDAY, CLOONEY, BRAD PITT.
TIME WAS, YOU COULD HAVE BEEN ON THAT LIST.
TIME WAS? YEAH, I MEAN, UH, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, EVERYBODY HAS THEIR DAY.
AND, UH, YOU'RE SETTLED AND MARRIED NOW.
GALLA DISOBEYED YOU BECAUSE SHE LOVED HAMP.
SHE SAID IT WAS JUS A CRUSH.
YOU SEE THE STATUE HERE? IT'S CALLED THE DYING GAUL.
HE'S A WARRIOR, HE'S BEEN STABBED.
HE'S DYING.
BUT EVEN IN DEATH, HIS PHYSICAL PERFECTION BRINGS TEARS FROM WOMEN WHO LOVED HIM.
DON'T YOU THINK THAT'S A BIT UNFAIR? NOT SURE I FOLLOW.
LIKE HIM.
OH, 'CAUSE HE LOOKS LIKE A STATUE.
WELL, YOU KNOW, THERE'S ALWAYS GONNA BE SOMEBODY WHO'S A LITTLE BETTER LOOKING OR A HOTTER LAY THAN [scoffs] ME.
RIGHT? THAT GOES WITHOUT SAYING.
GALLA'S VERY SPECIAL.
IN HER HEYDAY, I SPENT A LOT OF MONEY TO FIND OU JUST HOW SPECIAL.
SHE SAID I WAS THE BES SHE EVER HAD.
SHE EVER SAY THAT ABOUT YOU? SHE SAID THAT YOU GAVE HER EMERALD EARRINGS AND A SABLE COAT.
SHE WAS A HOOKER.
THAT IS WHAT THEY DO.
WHATEVER IT TAKES, GOTTA GET GALLA UNDER CONTROL.
[dialing cell phone] ARE YOU AT YOUR APARTMENT? ALL RIGHT, GET OVER THERE AND STAY THERE, I'M COMING RIGHT OVER.
WHAT'S THIS ABOUT? STASH.
THERE IS NOTHING IN THESE PEOPLE'S LIVES THAT IS NOT NOTEWORTHY.
ANYTHING THAT BRINGS US CLOSER TO HAVING AN ACTUAL SUSPECT.
THIS HELPS CONFIRM A MOTIVE FOR DUKE DEGUERIN.
AUSTRALIAN TABLOID.
YEAH, WE'RE THINKING THA DEGUERIN WAS ABLE TO STIFLE THE COVERAGE IN THE LOCAL PRESS.
WHAT WERE THEY DOING IN MELBOURNE? A MEETING OF THE WORLD WILDLIFE FUND.
DUKE'S WIFE AND HAMP TROTTER WERE BOTH MAJOR SUPPORTERS.
WE NEED TO TALK TO HER ON HER OWN, WITHOUT HER HUSBAND.
HE KEEPS HER PRETTY CLOSE TO HOME.
SHE'S BEAUTIFUL, VERY BEAUTIFUL.
THAT KIND OF BEAUTY REQUIRES HIGH MAINTENANCE.
[inhales and exhales deeply] MRS.
DEGUERIN.
DETECTIVE EAMES.
WE MET AT YOUR HUSBAND'S OFFICES.
[scoffs] I FEEL THIS IS INAPPROPRIATE.
BECAUSE WE DIDN' BRING YOU DOWNTOWN ON A WITNESS WARRANT? ALL RIGHT, WHAT DO YOU WANT? MAYBE WHAT YOU WANT.
JUSTICE FOR HAMP TROTTER.
OF COURSE I WANT THAT.
EVERYONE DOES.
BUT YOU KNEW HIM.
SHARED INTERESTS.
WORLD WILDLIFE FUND.
MELBOURNE.
YOUR HUSBAND IS A VERY PROUD MAN.
WAS HE JEALOUS? THERE WAS NOTHING TO BE JEALOUS ABOUT.
YOUR TEARS SAY THAT'S NOT TRUE.
IT'S SWEAT.
YOU CONTINUED SEEING HAMP, GAVE HIM GIFTS.
KNOWING HOW YOUR HUSBAND FELT, WE KNOW IN THE PAS YOUR HUSBAND PHYSICALLY PUNISHED PEOPLE WHO THREATENED-- YOU WANT ME TO TELL YOU I THINK MY HUSBAND KILLED HAMP? I HAVE TO THINK OF MYSELF.
WHERE WOULD I BE IF I SAID THAT? YOU'RE AFRAID.
DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND THE POWER HE HAS? IT'S JUST MONEY.
NO.
IT'S WHAT COMES WITH MONEY.
LITTLE PEOPLE LIKE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.
ONCE, I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND IT.
WE CAN PROTECT YOU.
IF I LET MYSELF BELIEVE THAT, I'D BE RISKING MY LIFE.
THEN YOU KNOW WHAT HE'S DONE.
SHE SUSPECTS HIM, MAYBE EVEN KNOWS HE DID IT.
BUT SHE'S TOO AFRAID TO TALK.
THE EVIDENCE WE COULD HAVE USED TO PRESSURE HER, THE KENNEBRAGH SCOTCH FROM HAMP'S LOFT, IT'S MISSING.
MAYBE THE BOTTLES WEREN'T BROUGHT IN.
I LISTED IT MYSELF.
WELL, IT'S NO A PERFECT WORLD.
SOME SCOTCH LOVING COP OBVIOUSLY DRANK IT.
BUT WE STILL HAVE THESE.
DEGUERIN'S GIFT BOTTLES HAD HANDWRITTEN NUMBERED LABELS.
THE NUMBERS TIE TO AVIA'S CHRISTMAS LIS AND THAT TIES HER TO HAMP.
IT DOESN'T TIE ANYTHING TO ANYTHING WITHOUT THE SCOTCH.
WELL, THOSE BOTTLES CAME IN CASES, AND THE CASES WERE ALSO NUMBERED.
THEY COULD BE STILL AT HAMP'S LOFT.
LOOK, SOMEBODY'S BEEN HERE BEFORE.
THEY PUT A SEAL OVER THE PREVIOUS SEAL.
YEAH, THEY'RE NUMBERED.
THERE'S ANOTHER ONE.
IT WASN'T CSU WHO BROKE THE SEAL.
PROFOUND BRUISING.
I'D SAY FROM THUMBS PRESSED INTO HER THROAT.
I'D ALMOST BET WE'LL FIND A BROKEN HYOID BONE.
UP CLOSE AND VERY PERSONAL.
HE WANTED TO SEE HER FACE, TO SEE HER FEAR.
PULLED HER JEANS DOWN, LEFT HER UNDERWEAR ON.
SO HE NEVER CONSUMMATED? I THINK HIS RAGE WAS GREATER THAN HIS DESIRE.
I DON'T AGREE.
I DID A VAGINAL SWAB.
I'M PRETTY SURE WE HAVE SEMEN.
SO WE'LL HAVE DNA.
SHE'S CARRYING HER JEWELRY.
YELLOW DIAMOND EARRINGS, RUBY STUDS.
SHE'S WEARING EMERALDS.
SHE WAS PACKED FOR TRAVEL.
PASSPORT, TICKET PRINTOUT ARUBA.
WONDER WHO WAS WAITING FOR HER AT THE PLANE.
AN APPRAISAL SLIP FOR THE RUBY EARRINGS.
PURCHASED BY STANISLAV BARDEM.
SOON AS I SAW THE UNIFORMS AT THE AIRPORT, I KNEW.
I'M SURE YOU KNEW BEFORE THAT.
WHAT, THAT GALLA WAS DEAD? NO, NO, NO.
NO, I ACTUALLY HOPED THAT WE WERE GONNA MAKE I OUT OF THE WOODS.
YOUR PRINTS ARE ON THE SEAL AT THE CRIME SCENE.
WE ALSO HAVE SEMEN.
YEAH.
AND I'LL BE A MATCH.
WE MADE LOVE AT HER PLACE.
AFTER I BEGGED HER, BEGGED HER TO GE OUT OF THE COUNTRY.
WELL, THERE'S-- GALLA WAS SAVVY ABOUT MEN.
OH, SHE HAD THAT DOWN.
I GUESS YOU WOULD HAVE DRESSED LIKE THA FOR ANY MAN THA SHE WAS WAITING FOR.
YOU GAVE HER THESE, RIGHT? YEAH.
I'D HAVE GIVEN HER THE WORLD.
WELL, WHEN WE FOUND HER, SHE WASN'T WEARING THOSE.
SHE WAS WEARING THESE EMERALDS.
I GUESS SHE WAS WEARING THEM FOR THE MAN THAT KILLED HER.
YOU HAVE ANY THOUGHTS? WELL, I CAN TELL YOU WHO GAVE HER THE EMERALDS, BUT THAT'S NO GONNA ACQUIT ME.
WE WANT THE MAN WHO'S GUILTY, STASH.
DUKE DEGUERIN.
HE GAVE 'EM TO HER AS A BONUS, FOR SAYING HE WAS A GREAT LAY.
WHY'D HE KILL HER? I DON'T KNOW.
THAT GOES INTO SOME SICK KIND OF THING THAT RELATES TO HAMP TROTTER.
YOU MEAN HE WAS JEALOUS.
WELL, MORE THAN THAT.
IT WAS WEIRDER.
LIKE WHEN, UH, THE TABLOIDS HAD PHOTOS OF GALLA AT HAMP'S PROTEST IT DROVE DEGUERIN CRAZY.
IT WAS, UH, ONE OF THOSE "MINE'S BIGGER THAN YOURS" THING.
ONLY I DOUBT THAT HAMP KNEW HE WAS IN THE GAME.
FUNNY HOW MY MEMO ABOUT COMING IN ON TIME GOT AN OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE RESPONSE.
IT IS 3:00 A.
M.
WE COULD BE VERY CLOSE ON GALLA'S MURDER.
WHAT'S THE RUSH? DNA? THAT'LL TAKE WEEKS TO PROCESS.
ACTUALLY, WE'RE MOVING IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION.
OKAY, I'LL HAVE SOMEONE GET BACK TO THEM.
IT WAS JAMIE WITZGER.
HE GAVE ME THE NAMES OF THREE WOMEN.
WE'LL BRING THEM IN.
THE PIMP, JAMIE WITZGER? WHAT ARE WE DOING WITH HIM? LOOK, I NEED TO TELL YOU I SENT TWO OFFICERS TO DUKE DEGUERIN'S PENTHOUSE.
THEY'RE GONNA BRING HIM IN.
HE'LL BE HERE WITHIN THE HOUR.
WE'RE ALSO BRINGING HIS WIFE AS A MATERIAL WITNESS.
PLEASE TELL ME WE HAVE UNASSAILABLE EVIDENCE.
YOU REALIZE THA ARRESTING DEGUERIN WITH ALL HIS CONNECTIONS-- WE HAVE A SHO AT GETTING HIS CONFESSION, BUT WE HAVE TO MOVE BEFORE GALLA'S DEATH HITS THE MORNING NEWS.
CONFESSION.
DEGUERIN SPEAKS THROUGH $1,000 AN HOUR ATTORNEYS.
HE CAN'T BE ENTRAPPED INTO ADMITTING ANYTHING.
WHY DID YOU CALL ME? YOU SHOULD HAVE ACTED ON YOUR OWN.
I COULD HAVE CLAIMED IMMUNITY.
WE NEED YOU.
YOU'RE PART OF THE PLAN.
I'M TAKING THE NAMES OF EVERYONE.
YOUR DISMISSAL, LOSS OF PENSION BENEFITS.
AND YOU'RE GONNA HEAD THIS LIST.
WE'RE SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
BEING DRAGGED FROM MY HOME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGH IS BEYOND INCONVENIENCE.
YOU'LL SEE WE HAVE GOOD REASON.
MRS.
DEGUERIN, CAN I MAKE YOU MORE COMFORTABLE WHILE WE TALK TO YOUR HUSBAND? YEAH, LET'S ALL KILL TIME TILL MY LAWYER ARRIVES TO KILL YOU.
WE CAN TALK IN HERE.
WHAT? YOU CAN SIT.
IT'S AMAZING HOW UNCERTAINTY PLAYS A ROLE IN OUR LIFE.
I DON'T KNOW, YOU LEAVE YOUR KEYS BY THE DOOR, YOU GO BACK, YOU LOOK, THEY'RE GONE.
YOU LEAVE A PERSON, YOU THINK THEY'RE-- IN--IN TRUTH, YOU JUST NEVER KNOW.
THAT WOMAN'S A WHORE.
PARDON? [scoffs] WHATEVER LIES SHE'S TOLD YOU-- THE WOMAN YOU SAW WITH THE EMERALD EARRINGS.
GALLA.
IT'S LIKE THIS WITH WHORES.
YOU PAY FOR THEIR SERVICES, SOMETIMES THINGS GE A LITTLE ROUGH.
THE SEX GETS ROUGH.
EVERYTHING WAS DONE WITH HER CONSENT.
[scoffs] SO THE BRUISES ON GALLA'S THROAT? YOU CHOKED HER AS PAR OF A SEX GAME? DISTASTEFUL, BUT NOT ILLEGAL.
YOU CAN'T BELIEVE WHATEVER LIES SHE'S TOLD YOU.
SO YOU CHOKED HER AND YOU LEFT HER FOR DEAD.
IT'S A GAME.
SHE ACTS IT.
INTERESTING THA YOU'RE VOLUNTEERING ALL THIS.
SHE HASN'T ACCUSED YOU OF ANYTHING.
THEN WHY AM I HERE? YOU WANTED GALLA TO EXPOSE HAMP TROTTER AS A DRUG ADDICT.
[scoffs] OH, THAT'S WHAT SHE ALLEGES.
ACTUALLY, WE HAVE TESTIMONY FROM AN EMPLOYEE OF YOURS.
YEAH, STASH BARDEM.
HE WAS GALLA'S LOVER.
HE WANTED TO RUIN HAMP OUT OF JEALOUSY.
AND NOW HE'S TRYING TO BLAME ME.
JEALOUSY WORKS AS A MOTIVE.
JEALOUSY IS A MANIFESTATION OF PROFOUND FEELINGS.
THAT'S HARDLY WHAT I FEL FOR THAT WHORE.
IT'S ALSO EVIDENCE OF WEAKNESS AND FEAR.
PATHOLOGICAL LOW SELF-ESTEEM.
IT'S NOT PAR OF MY CARRIAGE.
THAT'S TRUE.
YOURS IS MASKED BY AN INFLATED EGO.
BUT YOU STILL LOOK THROUGH THAT WINDOW, YOU SEE HAMP FLEXING HIS ABS, THE CITY BUZZES ABOUT HIS SEXUAL PROWESS HE'S PENETRATED DEEP INTO YOUR LIFE.
WATCH IT.
YOUR WIFE SLEPT WITH HIM.
GAVE HIM GIFTS.
DIDN'T THAT BOTHER YOU? AND I HAD HIS WIFE.
YOU SAW THE INSCRIPTION ON THAT POSTER.
I WAS THE BEST.
YEAH, BUT TO GET IT, YOU HAD TO FINANCE HIS FILM.
HE NEVER HAD TO PAY FOR IT.
HAMP, WELL, HE WAS PENNILESS WHEN HE WAS MARRIED TO HER.
YOU KNOW, WOMEN STILL WANTED HIM.
THEY DESIRED HIM.
I THINK THEY EVEN WEP FOR HIM.
THESE ARE THINGS THEY NEVER DID FOR YOU.
I'M HERE ON THE WORD OF A WHORE AND A DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEE.
I DON'T NEED THIS! YOU DON'T HAVE A CHOICE.
YOU ALREADY ADMITTED TO CHOKING HER.
SHE'S DEAD.
[scoffs] SO [scoffs] YOU STRANGLED GALLA ON HAMP'S BED TO REMIND HER THE POWER YOU TOOK OVER HIM.
DID YOU FEEL THAT STRENGTH WHEN YOU SAW HIM AFTER GALLA HAD DONE HER JOB? YES.
I THANKED HER FOR A JOB WELL DONE.
AND DRUGGING HIM WASN'T ENOUGH.
IT COULDN'T GET RID OF THAT WEAKNESS.
THE WEAKNESS THAT YOU FELT-- WHEN I MOST NEEDED TO BE A MAN.
WHEN I WAS A CHILD, MY AUNT GAVE ME A KITTEN.
IT SCRATCHED ME.
THE SCRATCH BECAME INFECTED AND WOULDN'T HEAL.
THEN I JUST HELD THE LITTLE ANIMAL A CERTAIN WAY.
SO EASY.
TREMORS, NOT REALLY A STRUGGLE.
WITHIN A WEEK, THE SCRATCH WAS GONE.
I WAS FINE.
AND GALLA, WHAT WAS HER OFFENSE? SHE CRIED.
LIKE THEY ALL CRIED.
FOR HIM.
SO NOW, THE THEATRICS OF A TRIAL? CHEAP-SUITED PROSECUTORS AGAINST THE FINEST DEFENSE TEAM MONEY CAN ASSEMBLE.
I'VE SAID NOTHING UNDER OATH.
THE CHARADE WON'T WASH.
DON'T FORGET ME, DUKE.
THEY BROUGHT ME AS A MATERIAL WITNESS.
ODD, SEEING FEAR ON YOU.
I THINK I LIKE IT.
I HOPE TO SEE MORE OF IT.
