Magnum P.I. (2018) s02e20 Episode Script

A Leopard on the Prowl

1 Previously on Magnum P.
I My one redeeming quality in this life is that I've always tried to be a father figure to you.
Man, I was surprised when you called.
I didn't think you were up for parole for another 18 months.
You'd be surprised how far a charming personality will take you.
- How long? - Couple of months.
Doc says it's stage IV cancer.
I'm gonna enjoy every bit of life I got left with you.
- My visa's expired.
- What are you gonna do about it? Well, I have an immigration lawyer who's working on it.
Well, you know, you can always overstay your visa.
- You have 180 days.
- Yeah.
And 171 days ago, that might have been an option.
- Everything okay? - My immigration lawyer.
He filed an emergency appeal, but it was denied.
And, 'cause I overstayed so long, there is a chance that they'll deny me entirely.
Which means I'll be moving back to London.
Magnum! Easy.
Okay, s-steady, boys.
No, no, no, Magnum, you're doing it all wrong.
How can I be doing it wrong? I-I haven't even done anything.
Dogs have a pack mentality, Magnum, right? In every pack, there is an alpha.
The alpha has the first and the last say; you need to be commanding and lose all the emotion from your voice.
- Right? - Okay.
Whatever you say, Master Yoda.
Sorry, I-I don't get the reference.
Not a Star Trek fan.
Star Trek? You got be kidding me.
Of course I'm kidding you.
That was a test, which you failed because you're still being too emotional.
Now be the alpha.
- Apollo.
- Magnum, that is Zeus.
Surely, you can tell them apart.
Of course I can't.
What did I say about being too emotional? Okay, okay, okay.
Zeus sit.
- No, too late.
- Okay.
- Ea-Easy, boys, easy.
Heel! - They sense your indecisiveness.
Okay, which is it, Magnum? Is it sit or is it heel? Do they even know the difference? Do you? And don't roll your eyes, Magnum.
How can you even see that from over there? I don't need to see it, Magnum.
I know you.
Now focus.
I need to know that you can look after the lads whilst I'm in London.
Okay, you know what? Listen to me, you two maniacs.
I've had enough of this crap, all right? I am tired of you guys terrorizing me.
All right? I'm the alpha.
I'm the alpha, and you're gonna do exactly as I say.
And right now, I command the both of you to sit! It worked.
Oh, my God.
Higgins! Hold on.
You met a woman in the cancer ward? Not just a woman, Teddy.
An angel.
Look at you, you old hound dog.
How did this happen? I don't know.
We were just the only two patients not distracted by our cell phones, so we started talking, and two hours later, we're still at it, and ended up grabbing a bite in the café downstairs.
That's amazing.
Yeah, we got plans for next week.
We are going skydiving.
Ha! Ooh! Hold on, hold on.
You realize how dangerous that is? Oh, how dangerous can it be? What's the worst that can happen, man my chute doesn't open? I'm dying of terminal cancer, boys.
I'm checking out either way.
Ice, that is not funny.
All right, I'll-I'll be right back.
I got to hit the head.
You know, I know the odds aren't great, but I'm glad he decided to fight this thing.
What are you doing? Just a little digging.
Ice has been acting weird lately.
Plus, he's never had a cell.
A cell phone? Now, that is suspicious.
Don't mock me, all right? I can tell something's up.
Ice never has had a cell phone, even when most guys in prison had burners.
- What is it? - It's a text chain with some number I don't recognize.
Ice is meeting up with somebody tonight.
Well, it's probably the woman he was just talking about.
Nah, not the way they're texting.
This is a guy.
Ice could be up to something.
He's probably just meeting up with some dude to hang out.
Kind of like we're doing right now.
Ooh, yeah.
Everything good? Yeah.
You ready for another Coops? - Yes, sir.
- I gotcha, buddy.
Well, this doesn't look suspicious at all.
What the hell you doing here? You know, I could ask the same of you, pal.
How'd you find me? I made sure I wasn't followed.
I put Friend Finder on your phone at the bar earlier.
Friend what? What-what the hell is that? It's an app.
You can track your friends' movements, you know, in case they decide to do something stupid.
Now it's your turn.
What's going on? A score.
I'm hitting up a warehouse over at Pearl City with a guy.
- You out of your mind? - Look, it's an easy pinch, man.
I'll be in and out in under 20.
Nobody gets hurt.
It's a no-brainer.
You just got out.
You want to go back in? This is none of your business, kid.
You're family that makes it my business.
Rick, I love you, man, I do, but I'm doing this thing.
So you either turn me in, or you get in that car, you drive away only two options here.
Give me a hug first, just in case.
All right.
Come on, man.
All cool.
All right.
Be safe, okay? Always.
Very smooth, kid.
Learned from the best.
Give 'em back.
Eh, you know I can't do that.
Knock it off, Rick.
I'm already late as is.
Why? Just tell me that.
Why? I got this friend, he needs somebody to hold his hand.
So why has it got to be you? Guy had my back in prison.
Ice, you're a 63-year-old man with lung cancer.
You haven't had a score since the '90s.
You're gonna get caught.
I know what I'm doing.
Ice, it's taken me long enough to accept the fact that you're sick.
All right? The only way I can cope is by enjoying the time that we still have left.
So hell no, you're not getting these keys back.
Damn you, kid.
All right.
All right, what? All right, you win.
You're a stubborn son of a bitch, you know that? I learned that from you, too.
Come on, I'll give you a lift home.
It's gonna look bad, me backing out like this.
Come on.
You're Icepick.
You're a legend.
Your reputation can take a hit.
I've been working every angle I can think of to keep Higgins in Hawaii, but time's running out.
A few days from now, she'll be on a plane to London.
She says she'll be back, but who knows? Could take a while for this whole visa thing to get sorted out.
A lot can happen between now and then.
Maybe she'll change her mind, decide London is where she ought to be.
Maybe she'll meet someone.
One thing seems certain, though: it looks like I'll be without a partner for the foreseeable future.
On the plus side, I'm getting two dogs that hate me.
Thomas Magnum.
It's Adam Noshimuri with Five-O.
Tani Rey gave me your number.
Thanks for getting back to me.
Of course.
Tani fill you in? She did.
And I reached out to an immigration attorney I know.
He's hooked up a few yakuza with legit papers.
He says there might be one option, but it's a long shot and very expensive.
Legal? As far as I know.
He didn't get into details.
Look, I'll text you his contact info so you can follow up.
Yeah, much appreciated.
No problem.
Hope it works out.
- Aloha.
- Aloha.
An expensive long shot.
Doesn't sound very encouraging, but it's something.
Gonna need some help, though.
Good thing I know someone with deep pockets.
Hey, Robin.
It's me.
Ice? Ice? Ice, I know you're in there.
Come on.
We got to talk! Ice, I'm coming in.
Ice? Ice! Oh, man.
Hey, kid.
You lied to me you went through with it anyway.
Yeah, I should've listened to you, man.
The whole thing went sideways.
Yeah, no kidding.
It's all over the news.
They're saying you guys killed a security guard.
Not me.
No, man, not me.
My-my my partner.
- You know he was gonna do that? - No, of course not! Son of a bitch popped the guard, then turned the gun on me before splitting with the cash.
- I was lucky to get away.
- That looks bad.
- I got to get you to the hospital.
- No.
No, no hospitals.
- You're gonna bleed out.
- Then let it bleed out.
I'm getting your ass to the hospital, you're gonna tell the cops what you know.
Ricky, Ricky, forget it! You were there.
You know who the killer is.
I'm not turning myself in.
I didn't kill nobody and I didn't steal nothing.
Ice, you got to do something.
I am not gonna spend what time I got left in a cage.
Besides, I tell Five-O everything I know, you're gonna end up there with me.
What happened? Whose blood is that? - Icepick's.
- Is he okay? He's alive.
Listen, I-I need your help.
You heard about that warehouse that got hit in Pearl City last night? Yeah, I-I saw it on the news.
Icepick was there.
Well, you got to tell HPD.
I can't.
Rick, someone died last night.
I know you guys are family, but this is Magnum, it's about more than that.
Look, I knew it was going down.
I saw Icepick last night.
So you knew about it, and you didn't do anything? No, I got in his face, I told him he couldn't do it.
I told him to turn around and walk away.
Hell, I thought he did.
I gave him a ride home.
- And he still went through with it? - Yeah.
You were with him last night, you had advance knowledge of it.
Considering your relationship, they're gonna think you were involved.
That's why I'm here.
If I go to the cops, we could both end up in prison.
But there's a killer on the loose.
Somebody's got to catch him.
And I'm sorry to put you guys in this position, but I don't know who else to turn to.
Look, Thomas, I need your help.
Sorry about the blood.
There's some pain medication in the cabinet next to the fridge.
I didn't want to come here.
Rick insisted on it.
It's just as well he did.
Tell us about your partner.
His name is Adrian Reese.
We were in Halawa together.
He was getting out, he had a score lined up, wanted to pick my brain about it.
I figure, "I ain't going anywhere, so" So you gave him your take on it.
For a roll of commissary stamps and a pack of smokes, yeah.
But then, I got out early, and I figured, "What the hell? I'll hit up Reese, and maybe he wants some company.
" Where do we find this guy? I wouldn't know.
Is there any information you could give us? Any detail that might help? No.
Come on, there's got to be something.
Ice, think.
There's a guy lying dead in the morgue because of us.
What are you talking about, "Because of us"? I didn't see you there.
- I should've stopped you.
- Come on, Rick.
You know you had nothing to do with this.
No, I should've stayed with him, made sure he didn't go back.
Instead, I trusted you.
Yeah, well, then you didn't learn what I taught you, kid.
- What's that? - Never trust a crook.
Yo, I got your message.
You all right? Yeah, I'm fine.
All right, anything you need, I got you.
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
- Thanks, TC.
- I'm here for him.
If you didn't have a hole in you, the two of us would be having words.
You're a good friend.
Like you should've been? Look, my boy could go down - because of what you did.
- All right, TC, just take a breath.
No, he's right.
I got myself into this.
I'm the one who's got to make it right.
Where do you think you're going? To find Reese.
Yeah, that's not happening.
Magnum's right.
You're in no fit state to go anywhere.
You need to stay here till you get your strength back.
Let us do our job.
What's this about? Our client thinks this guy Reese might be the father of her child, so we need to find him and collect DNA.
Well, you need a court order for that, unless you plan to raid his trash in search of a half-eaten sandwich or some used dental floss.
Right now, we're just focused on, uh, tracking him down.
He's gone off grid.
I can let you look at the file, but you can't take it with you.
Here he is.
All right.
Hey, listen, I just want to say I'm sorry to see you go, but I think you made the right decision.
I appreciate that.
I hope this one doesn't give you too much grief while I'm gone.
Heard that.
Let me know when you get settled.
I'm thinking about taking my son to Europe for summer vacation.
- Maybe we'll look you up.
- Oh, yeah, you absolutely have to.
I'd love to show you around.
It looks like our guy Reese has a bunch of aliases.
Okay, well, that's a good place to start.
All right.
Thanks, Gordon.
Owe you one.
Just one? Cheerio.
Hey, when you're back in London, you don't mind if I ask you to do stuff like this for me, right? Hmm.
If I said I would mind, would it stop you? Probably not.
And besides, I figure it's the least you can do, considering you're kind of bailing on our partnership.
I'm sorry, but that is not my choice.
Is that why you've been avoiding me this whole time? - 'Cause you think I'm abandoning you? - I'm not avoiding you.
You've been on the surf ski three times a day since I told you I was leaving.
Well, I like to surf-ski.
No one likes paddling that much, Magnum.
Okay, I take it back.
You're not bailing on me.
I just, um I'm disappointed that you're leaving.
So am I.
Anything yet? We're working on it.
How's Mr.
Hofstetler? He's, uh he's sleeping.
What's going on? Robin's coming to Hawaii.
I told him it wasn't necessary, that we could deal with the particulars of my exit over the phone.
I-I don't think that's it.
What do you mean? Well, I talked to a guy from Five-O, and he said he may know a lawyer who can help out with this, but it-it's very expensive, so I asked Robin to look into it.
I wish you hadn't done that.
Why not? Because Robin's already done so much for me.
Yeah, you didn't ask him to do anything.
I did.
And besides, it's a long shot.
Uh, almost zero percent chance that it's gonna work.
What is it? I don't know, but Robin said that, um, if it doesn't work, he still wanted to say goodbye.
That's very thoughtful of him.
Yeah, well, that's Robin.
You know, I'd like to throw you a party before you go.
Uh, assuming I'm not in jail.
- Thank you, Rick.
- Yeah.
Why don't you go home, take a shower and maybe check in on the bar? Uh, no, I'm-I'm okay.
I'll stick around.
Rick, seriously, go take care of yourself.
We've got this.
All right.
Well, uh, call me if you find Reese.
I feel bad for him.
Shouldering the weight of this problem.
He shouldn't blame himself.
I don't think it's that.
I-I just think he feels like Icepick betrayed him.
Well, he's not wrong.
I mean, if it were me, I don't know that I would protect him.
Yeah, I don't think I would, either.
But it's complicated.
I mean, without Icepick, Rick probably would've ended up on a very different path.
Rick feels like he owes him.
I have something.
Reese used one of his aliases to check into the Honua Lani Inn.
Then let's head over there.
But, uh But, um, this is the picture of the guy.
Promise me you won't use that fake badge when I'm gone.
This little piece of tin opens a lot of doors, okay? So that's a no? It-it helps me do my job.
Asking me not to use it is like asking Steph Curry not to use his jump shot.
A jump shot Yeah, we have basketball in England, Magnum.
The door's been busted open.
He ain't here.
We must've just missed him.
You lied to us.
Yeah, well, I didn't want you more involved than you already are.
So you were just gonna execute a man in cold blood? He didn't hesitate to pull the trigger on that guard.
Last night could've been a clean score, but that wasn't good enough for Reese.
No, no, he wanted to have it all for himself, and he didn't want to leave any witnesses.
20 years ago, I never would've trusted a guy like that.
Because I did you're all in a fix now.
Maybe you can still do some good.
Tell us what you know about Reese so we can find him.
Yeah, then what? Then we turn him in.
Figure out some way to keep you and Rick out of this.
Man, you don't get it.
I don't want to put him back behind bars.
I want someone to stick him in the ground.
It's the only way you stop a man like that.
He's evil.
Even if you are right, that's not what Rick wants us to do.
- Hey, boss.
- Yeah? There was a guy in here looking for you.
- Who? - He didn't leave his name.
He's sitting in the booth over there.
All right, thanks.
I've been looking for you.
- Walk.
- All right.
Where's the car? Take it easy.
It's the Porsche.
Let's go for a ride.
Where do you want to go? You're gonna take me to Icepick.
Let's go.
If he moves off that sofa, - shoot him.
- You got it.
We're on our way.
We got to go.
Okay, I know it doesn't look like it, but I swear I got in some pretty good shots.
- Yeah, sure, you did.
- I did, seriously.
- And I believe you.
- It doesn't sound like you do, Theodore.
Guys, please.
What did he want? He wanted to finish what he started with Ice.
Yeah, dude must've seen coverage of the robbery, heard that there was only one dead body instead of two, knew he messed up.
Yeah, well, if he's hunting Icepick, it's only a matter of time before he finds him.
I'm more concerned about you at the moment.
I'm gonna be fine.
Maybe now you are.
But Reese knows that you can link him to that heist.
He's gonna want you dead, too.
Ah, he's got the money.
If he was smart, he'd get off this rock while he still can.
If he was gonna do that, he would've done that yesterday.
Think he's more concerned with tying up loose ends.
You sure? It sounds risky.
I guess it's better than looking over your shoulder for the rest of your life.
We don't have a choice.
We have to bring the fight to Reese.
We have to find him and take him down before he gets to Rick and Icepick.
You guys got any leads? None of Reese's other aliases from HPD panned out, but Icepick did mention another name he's been using.
Carl Brewer.
We're looking into it now.
All right, well, I'm staying here with Orville until this whole thing's over.
I don't need a bodyguard.
- I'm staying.
- He's staying.
I don't know you too well, but the way you're looking at me, feels like you might want to use that thing.
Believe me, I'm tempted.
No one was supposed to get killed.
Given your experience, you had to know that was still a possibility.
I've been on the inside for a long time.
Being on the prowl that's it's what I do.
I couldn't resist one last score.
I really didn't want anyone to get hurt.
What about Rick? What about him? He's like your son.
You're supposed to protect him.
I always have.
Best I could.
Until now.
You put him and everyone I love in danger.
And for what? Money? You only care about yourself.
Should be ashamed.
I am.
Wasn't about the money, though.
Then why'd you do it? I haven't got that long left.
I just wanted to feel like it used to.
I needed something to make me feel alive again.
Really, really alive.
If only for just one night.
Figure what have I got left to lose? You had Rick.
Wasn't that enough? It should've been.
I guess I've been lying to myself about being at peace.
Truth is I'm not ready to die just yet.
- Anything on Carl Brewer? - Yeah.
Reese actually used that alias to get a cellular data plan.
Oh, okay.
Score one for Icepick.
- Mm-hmm.
- Ping the phone yet? Why is it, everything that comes out of your mouth is a query? What? I'm driving.
You're laptop-ing.
Laptop-ing? It's just not my thing.
Firstly, "laptop-ing" is not a word.
And secondly, you really ought to make it your thing, Magnum, if you're gonna continue your business without me.
Well, maybe you can teach me before you leave.
I have days, Magnum, not months.
And as to your query, I can't ping Mr.
Brewer's cell phone because it's dead.
But according to his cell phone records, he did call one number more frequently than most, and that belongs to a Leon Yates.
Leon Yates.
Name sounds familiar.
Could you pull up the news coverage - from the robbery? - Uh-huh.
Leon Yates was the armed guard who was killed during the heist.
Seems he wasn't such an innocent victim after all.
No, he's more like an inside man.
Which would explain how Reese knew that there was a safe full of cash in the warehouse.
Yates have any family? Says here he was survived by a girlfriend Cynthia Lloyd in Kalihi.
Maybe she knows something.
Lloyd? Yes? I'm Jan Hawks.
This is Travis McCoy.
We're investigating the warehouse robbery on behalf of its insurance company.
We're very sorry for your loss.
We heard your boyfriend Leon was a very dedicated security guard.
Do you mind if we ask you a few questions? Do we have to do this now? We understand it's a difficult time for you.
Generally, in these circumstances, it's better to move quickly.
We'll only take a minute.
Thank you.
- Thank you.
- Mm-hmm.
I, um I just don't know how I can help.
For starters, you can tell us if you recognize this man.
- No.
I've never seen him before.
- Okay.
So, you, uh you live here alone, huh? Just me.
This is, um, you and Leon, huh? Looks like Wailua Falls.
Last Christmas.
Thank for your time.
We're very, uh very sorry for your loss.
We'll call you if-if we have any more questions.
Our sincere condolences.
Can't let you leave just yet.
Lock the door.
Look we mean no disrespect.
We're just working for our clients.
Clients, right.
Friends of Rick.
Looked him up online.
Saw a press conference, you guys got back from the sandbox few years ago.
You got me.
But this doesn't look like a hostage situation.
On a hunch, I'd say these two had something going on behind Leon's back.
So, what, you use Leon, stab him in the back, and then steal his girl? Not in that order, but yeah.
What do you want? You're gonna call your buddy.
You're gonna bring him and the old man down here, and if you don't, it's lights-out for old Mary Poppins here.
Thomas, what's up? Good news.
We got a lead on Reese.
I love you guys.
Seriously, mai tais for life.
Or any other beverage of your choosing.
What's wrong with mai tais? I'm just saying it's not your best cocktail, that's all.
And you're just now telling me this? Eh, Kammy said it, too.
- Kammy said it? - Rick, listen, I think we have a way to draw him out, but we're gonna need Icepick's help.
Do you think he's up for it? Yeah, of course.
Anything to get this guy.
Okay, uh, great.
I'm gonna need you to be my QRF, just like in the Korengal.
But, uh I'll shoot you the address in a second.
- Yeah.
Yeah, you got it.
- All right.
- That was weird.
- Right? QRF? We were his primary unit.
Yeah, and we didn't have a QRF in the Korengal.
That's the whole reason the Talis were able to grab us when Hannah sold us out.
Thomas is sending us a message.
He and Higgins are in trouble.
So, what happens when they get here? - Kill all four of us? - Or five.
She's a witness, too.
Wha-What? Don't listen to 'em, babe.
They're just messing with your head.
Another word out of you, last words you ever say.
- Gordon.
- Save it.
Your pal Icepick is going down for murder one, and you helped cover it up.
That makes you an accessory.
I get that.
You could face charges.
I know.
We don't really have time for that right now.
Yeah, he's right.
Let's just get our friends back and worry about the rest later.
Stay on comms.
And these are to be used only if necessary.
Sure you don't want to give me the bigger gun? Just follow me.
Reese is armed.
He's got Thomas, Higgins and the homeowner in the living room.
But there could be other hostiles in there I can't see.
Make the call.
It's Rick.
Put it on speaker.
What's going on? We're on our way.
Should be there in about ten minutes.
See you soon.
All right, it's go time.
You got two entry points, - front and back.
- Copy that.
Front door.
- There's someone out there.
- Son of a bitch! - Gordon! - He hit my vest.
Go get him.
Go get him.
Don't move! Terrific.
Magnum! You okay? Yeah.
How did you know I wasn't gonna go flying off the top of that thing? I knew you'd do something.
How? Because after two years, Magnum, I think I know you.
Better late than never, I guess.
Mind if I have a moment? You got a minute.
Listen, I'm sorry for everything, kid.
I know you are.
I was just, uh, scared of wasting away.
Looking for one last thrill.
I should've gone skydiving.
Hey, look, I don't want you to feel bad for me.
I lived my life the way I wanted to.
And most parts, I'm I'm proud of, other parts not so much.
But the part that had to do with you I'm most proud of that.
'Cause you turned out to be one hell of a man.
And always be grateful for them.
That's all we got in the end.
I'll see you soon.
I love you.
Expect to hear from the prosecuting attorney.
We got you, brother.
Higgins is leaving today.
I did everything I could to keep her here.
I'm not sure if there was anything else I could've done.
She drives me crazy, but I got to admit, I'm really gonna miss her.
I trust that Magnum will look after you as I have done.
Try not to be too hard on him, all right? I know it doesn't look like it from the outside, but he can be quite fragile.
That being said, do give him a nick once in a while, remind him who's boss.
I'm gonna miss you.
Juliet? TC just landed.
Masters is here.
Good boy.
He's a good boy.
Looks like Robin made it.
He's up at the house.
So, I guess this is it.
Actually it's not.
Turns out I don't have to leave after all.
What do you mean? Robin met with the attorney, and together they resolved my visa status.
It's all taken care of.
So you're not going? Uh, you want me to? No.
Not at all.
I'm just surprised.
What did they do? It turns out, there's this obscure law in the book that says if you own a company that's valued at $500,000 and you have at least five employees, then you're entitled to a visa.
Yeah, but you don't have that.
No, I don't.
But, uh thanks to Robin, I now do.
I still don't understand.
Robin's just signed over full ownership of his estate to me.
You now own Robin's Nest? Yes.
And all of its contents.
And with employees like Kumu as cultural curator and, well, you as security consultant, amongst the others, I'll be allowed to retain my legal resident status.
