Law & Order: Organized Crime (2021) s03e03 Episode Script

Catch Me If You Can

In the nation's largest city,
the vicious and violent
members of the underworld
are hunted by the detectives
of the Organized Crime Control Bureau.
These are their stories.
The $1.4 billion construction
has been delayed
by this man, Henry Cole.
We made him a very generous offer.
Several, actually.
All I expect from you is results.
You tell me to fix the problem,
I get the job done.
It wasn't an accident.
Silas family's behind this somehow.
Construction site's a dangerous place.
- What have we got?
- Rat bites, dozens of them.
I sold some African
crested rats to this man.
Kenneth Michael Kyle,
did you have anything to do with this?
I would never do anything that would
jeopardize your trust in me.
Yeah, I got eyes on him.
He's on the move.
First you delay our construction.
Now you shut down our club?
I don't know.
I gotta tell you, it's starting
to feel like harassment.
This is your club. That's interesting.
You want to tell us what's going on?
We need to find this man now.
Do you know him?
Don't think too hard.
Never seen him before in my life.
- Me neither.
- How about you?
His name is Kenny Kyle.
He's a person of interest
in Henry Cole's murder.
Now, we know Kenny wasn't
in this club tonight to party.
We need to know what he was doing here
or where he might be going.
We had about 1,000
people packed in there.
How the hell are we supposed to know?
We're very sorry to hear about Henry.
We want to help in any way we can.
Oh, good.
Well, let's start
with your security feed.
I need all video from
the last six hours,
and I appreciate you providing it now.
Kenny was headed to the men's room
- when he got made.
- Mm-hmm.
I found this envelope taped inside one
of the toilet tanks.
Kenny's payoff.
Is everything okay?
Mind if I ask what you're doing?
Uh, yeah.
Just oh, I had to pull over.
My stomach.
I needed some fresh air, you know?
I'm puking my guts out here.
Been drinking?
No, sir. No.
Mind showing me some ID, sir?
Uh, yeah. Sure. No thing.
Got a hit on those plates. It's him.
Book him up!
Kenny ditched a stolen
car under an overpass
at Morris Park Ave.
We're canvassing for video
and witnesses.
- Is that the officer's wife?
- Mm-hmm.
Is he gonna be okay?
The surgery went well.
We'll keep tabs on the progress.
All right.
Oh, hey, hey.
Let's get to work. Come on.
- We'll keep you up to date.
- Mm-hmm.
You can't do that.
Blame yourself.
That is an emotion that will bury you
in a deep, dark hole of grief that
does not help you do this job.
I don't know what to do.
You do the work.
That's what's gonna
get you through the day.
Just focus on the work.
I'm not someone who freezes up.
All right, well, you'll have
plenty of chances
to prove that in this unit, so.
- Yeah.
- Yep.
Tomas, just until I say stop.
This is a silly question,
but you weren't followed,
were you?
Not silly, but I wouldn't
get paid what I do
if people were able to follow me.
As requested.
I assume no need to count.
Thank you.
So how long will this take?
I can never give a time frame,
especially if I'm trying to
keep a low profile, which,
given the subject, is essential.
Well, he's clueless half the time.
I could be standing in his shoes
while he's trying to put them on.
He wouldn't even notice.
I want to know everything
you find out as soon as you do.
You sure about that?
Sometimes people say that,
and then they regret it later on.
And what you're asking for,
it's sensitive.
If my husband was involved
in that man's murder,
I am not going to worry
about sensitivity,
and neither should you.
I need real proof, though,
names, money transfers,
whatever I can use as collateral.
He's not the only one with secrets.
And I've never known
a woman without one.
Tomas, we're done.
When you have something, text me.
I'll call.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
Everybody, listen up.
This is Deputy Inspector
Lillian Goldfarb.
We've been through
a lot of battles together.
And some of them weren't
even against each other.
I'm here to expedite warrants,
provide backup wiretaps,
whatever you may need
- to bring in Kenny Kyle.
- Well, great.
Right now, we need
a GPS stuck to his ass.
I'd settle for a single clue.
Are you getting anything
off that footage?
We studied it like the Zapruder film,
saw six different people using
the stall in our time frame,
four men, two women.
Two of the guys look suspicious.
But between the disco
lighting and the strobe,
we couldn't be sure
who would ditch the 20k.
What else?
We have our surveillance
team at Kenny's house.
You're tracking his phone.
Anything there?
His last known cell has been inactive
for the past 48 hours.
It'll be at the bottom
of the Hudson by now.
He's a career criminal.
He knows how to disappear.
Um, guys?
The rat guy called 911.
Saddle up.
Kenny came here looking
for antibiotics for his bites.
I didn't have any.
He started getting rough.
I gave him an injection of cat dewormer
just to get out of here.
Cat dewormer?
What's that gonna do for him?
Nothing he's not a cat
and doesn't have worms.
So is he gonna get worse?
With the way he looked, I guarantee it.
The guy has a raging case
of streptobacillary rat bite fever.
What's that mean?
Right about now, his skin is on fire.
Confusion and paranoia are setting in,
along with irrational behavior.
Is that why he beat you up?
It was your fault.
Why was it my fault?
He saw your card on the table,
just kept swearing that
I was the one who gave him up.
He broke a couple of my ribs and my leg,
and he stole my damn car!
- Would you call that in?
- Yeah.
So this state that he's in,
how long is that gonna last?
Not long.
From what I saw, that
boy is as good as dead.
This is Jet.
Hey, I already put out an APB.
I'd like an LPR check
on a white Mazda Sentra,
license Alpha Bravo Zulu 9740
headed north out of Highbridge.
On it. And I may have something else.
Kenny's been arrested multiple times,
and it seems like the same
woman always bails him out,
Dede Hayes.
She's who he calls
when he gets in trouble.
Well, he's in trouble right now.
So you got an address?
- Texting it to you now.
- All right, good.
Where you going, mister?
Where you going?
Oh, God.
Uptown. If you could just here.
Just just drive uptown.
- Hey.
- Hey. Your buzzer broken?
I'm downstairs.
It's baby handoff time, remember?
Oh, God. I forgot.
Denise, I'm so sorry.
I I'm I'm working
this homicide, and
Yeah, I totally get it, Ayanna.
But why are you fighting me
for custody when you don't
even have time for visitation?
Let's just put the
thousands we pay the lawyers
into Jack's college fund.
Listen, Denise, I
Painful times.
I get it.
Oh. You divorced too?
Worse. Married, three kids.
How do y'all make that work?
It's hard as hell.
Kenny used to sneak in this window
all the time growing up.
If it was a weeknight, I knew to grab
a bag of these for whatever
lump his dad left on him.
Kenny stayed with your family?
No, my old man was just as bad as his.
Not to mention, Kenny could never
leave his baby sister, Emily.
He bottle fed her. He sang her to sleep.
One night, his dad attacked her.
Kenny grabbed that kid and ran.
Where'd he go?
I'd been kicked out of here
and sent to live
in my grandparents' place in Yonkers.
Kenny and Emily, they
they hid with me.
Are you in touch with Emily?
Is she someone you might contact?
Don't think so.
The state stepped in and
and they got separated.
She was adopted by some family
in, um, in Florida, I think.
That kid was his his light.
Giving her up was the
hardest thing he ever did.
But Kenny was he was so proud
that that she got out.
Careful, Grandma.
- It's very hot.
- Thank you.
My grandma had a bad fall.
She's staying with me now.
Were you and Kenny ?
Ah, no, no. No.
More like brother and sister.
We dreamed of running away.
Then I turned my life around.
I went back to school, I I got a job.
And Kenny?
Wise guys got the hooks in him.
He did anything they wanted
just for the pat in the head.
Got in big trouble.
But you kept bailing them out.
We've been through too much together
for me to turn my back.
But then he got caught
on this arson charge,
and when he got out of prison,
he wasn't the same.
High all the time, violent.
I had to cut him off.
When was the last time
you heard from Kenny?
About a year ago.
He broke in and stole my TV.
I called the cops on him.
Trust me, I'm not the one
he calls anymore.
Well, you believe her?
Some of it.
Here's what I don't buy.
No way two people are
that close for that long
and don't sleep with each other.
Sure about that?
- What does that mean?
- Hey, Jet.
Dede just told us that,
uh, she called the cops
on Kenny about a year ago.
I need you to check that out for us.
What's that mean?
No record of any report.
She's lying.
All right, I need an
exigent circumstances GPS
on Dede's cell.
That's on the gray, even if
we are chasing someone
who shot a cop.
Well, I'd rather beg for forgiveness
than ask for permission on this one.
You know this guy,
seen him around the site?
We need to find him, fast.
No, I haven't seen him.
Well, this site's been a circus.
It doesn't mean someone else hasn't.
Do you mind if I ask around?
Do your job.
Excuse me.
Henry's apartment all cleared out?
Yeah, but I think I heard
something in the wall.
Like what, more rats?
Mr. Silas, we got a problem.
Somebody's in there.
Go ahead.
- Please don't hurt me.
- We wont. We wont. We promise.
Tell us about those bites.
Rats. Out of nowhere.
All of a sudden, they were all over me.
What the hell is going on?
We just stopped your demolition crew
from killing a man
squatting in your building.
You're welcome.
Now, get out the way.
Oh, God, pick up, pick up,
pick up, pick up.
- Hello?
- Oh, God. Thank god.
Kenny? Kenny? Kenny?
What's this number?
Where are you calling from?
I don't know.
Just just tell me that you're okay.
Oh, I don't know.
I don't know. I don't know.
Oh, my God, my brain feels
like it's on fire.
Oh, God, I don't feel so good, Dede.
- I feel so bad.
- Kenny, listen to me.
The cops were here.
They came looking for you.
What do you mean?
What do you mean? What do you mean?
What did you tell them?
I told them that I hadn't
heard from you in forever,
that things went bad,
and that I hope they
find you and put you away for life.
You don't mean that, do you?
No, of course not.
Ah, good. Good.
I could always count on you.
And I need that so bad right now, Dede,
because it's time.
Do you understand what I'm telling you?
I know.
I, uh, I got everything
ready at the house.
Okay, good.
I'll meet you there.
And Dede, Dede, make sure
you're not being followed.
You got it.
She's on the move.
Yes, she is.
You saved my life.
Now, what do you want?
Have you seen this man?
- Am I going to jail?
- No. You have our word.
You won't face any charges.
I call him the Ghost.
He used to float up and
down that passageway,
say things to Henry.
What kind of things?
I couldn't make the words out, exactly.
Were they friends? Did they interact?
No, not friends.
More like evil, hissing threats.
Did you see him the night Henry fell?
He had a a burlap sack
on his shoulder,
and something was
wriggling around in it.
Then the rats came.
That guy was death.
Car stopped.
Seems to be just around the corner.
Where's the car?
Let me see that.
The app says she should be here.
Uh, NYPD, ma'am.
Is there a problem?
Is Dede Hayes here?
Dede who?
Sorry to have troubled you, ma'am.
She dumped her phone.
All right, we need
a new way to track her.
Anything with the LPRs?
Last time she was tagged,
she was heading north on the Hutch,
just past the Mount Vernon exit.
Mount Vernon? Next to Yonkers.
Dede's grandparents'
house is in Yonkers.
Did you hear that?
All right, we need an address.
You sure you weren't followed?
Yeah, I ditched my phone
so they couldn't track it.
Your leg.
Kenny, you're burning up.
Oh, don't worry about it. It's okay.
It's okay.
Did you, uh, did you get everything?
Yeah. Um.
Fake passport, cash.
I'll drive you to the
Canadian border like
like we said, and, um
Thank you.
- Kenny, I'm scared.
- Oh, no.
Don't be, don't be, don't be, don't be.
Okay? I'll be okay.
You're gonna be all right, okay?
It's not me that I'm scared for.
You have no idea how good
it is hearing you say that.
Will you run away with me,
like we always said we would?
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- Just let me go pack.
- Okay. Yeah.
Go, go, go, go. Quick, quick.
Go. Go.
I don't understand.
I don't understand.
Kenny, I had no choice.
Tell me you didn't know.
He said they were gonna kill Grandma.
Kenny, I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
Requesting immediate backup.
Address, 15232 Edgewood Avenue.
Active crime scene still active.
Detective Stabler.
Ah, damn it.
Who's the body in the other room?
I think it's a professional killer
who didn't duck fast enough.
How do you know he's professional?
Got a silencer on his weapon.
Also, I think two people
were shot at there.
There's another pool of blood.
Someone got away.
Another hit man? Kenny?
Well, if it's the second
hit man, whoever sent him
definitely doesn't want Kenny alive.
So Kenny came here thinking
he was gonna meet his girl,
got ambushed.
Or he was set up.
Why would you say that?
You're a hit man with a silencer.
Why go to all the trouble
to strangle someone?
Close and personal. A crime of passion.
Kenny walks in on this,
he must have felt betrayed.
Check this out.
- Second hitter.
- Yeah, what you found outside.
OC-5 to Central.
Yeah, I was just about to call you.
A man fitting Kenny's
description just hijacked
another car outside Millwood.
We're en route.
Well, I'll tell you, what,
this guy's really on a tear.
Elliot, there's something else.
Don't tempt me, l
My baby, my baby. I need my baby.
Lisa, everything's going to be okay.
Just tell me what happened.
I just got back from getting
drops for her ear infection.
I put her in her car seat.
I turned around to lift the nozzle,
and the ignition started.
Why did I turn away?
Hey, hey, it is not your fault.
You were just doing the best you could.
Do you have any idea where he went?
North, maybe heading to Canada,
going over the border.
- Canada?
- Does your car have GPS?
- Wait, my phone.
- What about it?
It's still in the car.
I was charging it.
Jet, I need you to track a phone.
All over it.
What's the situation?
Kenny's headed north.
The baby in the backseat
has a medical condition.
Oh, my.
Okay, listen.
We're going to do this together.
Tell them your baby's name.
Make it personal.
Shh. Shh.
You have my Zoe.
I'll do anything, anything you want.
I won't hurt her.
Jet, pull up the audio.
Then give her back.
I can't do that.
Okay, tell tell him
about the ear infection.
Play it up.
She has an inner ear infection,
might need to get tubes.
Yes, she needs her drops.
They're on the back seat
in the paper bag.
Is that why she's crying?
Yeah, she's in pain.
I have to give them to her.
Tell him to pull over so you can come.
Pull over.
Let me come to you and take her.
I won't let anyone take her,
not again, not this time.
Not what time. What
are you talking about?
Calm down. We need to keep him
No, I just want my baby back.
That's all that I want!
She's not yours!
What does he mean she's not mine?
What is
Hey, Stabler?
Hey, Sarge, that rat bite infection,
- it causes delusions.
- Fantastic.
Well, Kenny had a baby sister.
- Her name was
- Emily.
Emily, and he basically raised her,
protected her from their abusive father.
He loved her more than
anything in the world.
Okay. And?
The state took her away,
adopted her out.
So Kenny thinks that the baby is Emily.
Jet, do you still have him?
Signal went dead.
He must have ditched the cell.
Damn. Last point of triangulation?
He's headed north on the Taconic.
- Lisa
- Thank you. Yeah.
You said you were
putting gas in the car?
- No, I never had the chance.
- Okay. How much was in there?
None. I was running on E.
Jet, send me the last known location.
I'm way ahead of you.
All right, Lisa,
we are gonna do everything in our power
- to bring your baby home.
- Okay.
- Let's go.
- Please.
Okay, so here's where
the signal dropped.
Somewhere around here.
Over there.
- Oh, you hear that?
- Yeah.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, no.
No, no reason for that.
Hey, come on.
Kenny's here. Hey.
Hey, look.
Look what I got.
You see this?
Kenny's got his magic water,
and it's gonna make the ouchies go away.
And three drops down the hatch.
My sweet Emily,
my little bean.
Big brother's not gonna
let anyone hurt you.
She's beautiful.
Don't come any closer.
- I just want to talk, Kenny.
- I said stay where you are.
- I said stay right there!
- Okay, okay.
I'm right here, like you said.
You try to take my sister,
and I'll blow your brains out.
No one's gonna take her
from you, not this time.
How do I know I can trust you?
I can pull some strings at the state.
I'll tell them that your father
was trying to hurt her
and you kept her safe.
Kenny, you're not well.
I need to get you better so that you can
take care of Emily, but I
need you to put down the gun.
No, I can't do that.
- Well, I can't help you.
- No.
The state's not gonna let me help you
if you're waving a gun around a baby.
You know that.
Are you trying to trick me?
- No.
- Are you trying to trick me?
No, Kenny. No. I am on your side.
Can I show you?
I I can show you.
I can't get you now.
Your turn.
See how easy that was?
Now, Emily is very, very sick.
You know that.
I gave her her medicine.
I know. You did good.
You're a good big brother.
But before I can call my
friends at the state, I
I just need to look at her.
I need to see if she's okay.
Can I hold her just for a minute?
One minute?
That's it.
Just nice and slow.
You can put her right here in my arms.
Thank you, Kenny.
Emily! Emily!
Kenny Kyle, you are under arrest.
You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used
against you in a court of law.
You have a right to an attorney.
If you cannot afford one,
one will be appointed to you.
Oh, my God, Zoe.
She's okay.
And Kenny's under arrest?
Yeah, we got him.
Thank you so much.
You okay?
Yeah, that was, uh
I want Kenny alive.
He's on the way to the
hospital for treatment.
I doubled up this guard.
It'll be 24/7. We'll
have him on lockdown.
No escape this time.
Sergeant Bell?
Sergeant Bell, could I
please have a comment?
- Here, let me take this.
- Mm-hmm.
We have with us Sergeant Ayanna Bell,
head of the Organized Crime Task Force.
Can you tell us what happened here?
I can confirm that a suspect,
Kenneth Michael Kyle, is in custody
for the attempted murder
of officer Danny Murdoch
and the murders of Dede Hayes
and an unidentified victim in Yonkers.
Kyle is also the suspect
in the death of Henry Cole
at the Majestic Casino
construction site.
Damn it, Ayanna.
Sergeant Bell, was
Henry Cole's death a hit?
I'm not gonna make any
more statements at this time.
You're tuning in
to live, special coverage
of Sergeant Ayanna Bell's
press statement
following the arrest of Kenneth Kyle,
a man who kidnapped a baby
while on the run.
Hey, Ronnie, I got your text.
What'd you find out?
Henry Cole, he was murdered.
I'm afraid your husband was involved.
What else?
He's been having an affair.
Are you serious?
Numerous, in fact.
For years.
Do you have proof, photos?
I can get whatever you need.
Okay, I want videos.
I want the clothes he was wearing.
If it was in a hotel in the city,
I want it burned to the ground.
I if you um, the swatches.
You know I'm not going to compromise.
So when you have the
shipment in, call me.
Everything okay? You look stressed.
Yeah, just decorator shipment delays.
What's that?
It's takeout from Café Mogador.
My favorite.
Who's the best husband?
You are.
Well, just wait 'cause I have
one more surprise for you.
I don't need to introduce you two, do I?
You were on speakerphone, by the way.
See, I know every PI in this city
well enough that even when I don't,
my reputation precedes me.
Because whenever anyone goes
looking for dirt on a Silas,
they know I'll pay them double
to keep them quiet.
And I will do anything
to protect our family.
Check's in the mail, Ronnie.
Thank you, Mr. Silas.
Have a good day.
Are you really having an affair, Teddy?
Oh, baby. Babe.
You are my everything.
I would never.
What about Henry?
We are gonna be king
and queen of this city.
You don't get to be royalty
without chopping off
a couple heads, right?
Why don't you grab us some plates?
I'll open a bottle of wine.
We should eat before this gets cold.
Of Henry Cole
at the Majestic Casino
construction site.
Hero cop saves baby.
That's gotta feel good.
I'm a baby-saving hero
who can't remember
to pick up her own child.
You're my hero.
- To you.
- Mm. Ah.
To Dede Hayes.
To Henry Cole.
In tragic news,
NYPD officer Danny Murdoch
succumbed to his injuries
and died tonight
at Mount Zion Hospital.
He leaves behind his wife
and five children.
You okay?
I think it was the five kids.
It just
Hit a little too close to home.
Yeah, is there anything I can do?
Just don't feel much
like talking anymore.
I'll see you tomorrow, Detective.
You know, Kenny wasn't the mastermind.
Somebody hired him.
We're gonna do what we need to do.
Appreciate you, Sarge.
Yeah, I appreciate you.
