Matador (US) (2014) s01e13 Episode Script

Mala Sangre

You're gonna want to come work for us.
The L.
A.
Riot are having open tryouts.
Try out for a professional soccer team? The gig is just a cover.
Now, if we play this right, this might be your ticket into Galan's inner circle.
- You, the goddamn DEA.
Is it true? - Yes.
Galan's not calling the shots.
Lucien Sayer.
Then on that time, we will have a cure, for death.
How can we sustain the planet's resources with all these people and never die? Obviously, we can't.
In a few hours ago, people just started getting sick.
There are no survivors.
I had no idea terrorism was on the agenda.
- You sure he's okay? - Doctors said he's fine.
It's here, the virus.
Destroy the lab, we destroy the threat.
Margot.
Maybe I underestimated you Spotters have picked up incoming aircraft.
Are we trying to save an agent or are we trying to stop a terrorist? I need you to run! Wait, is that dad? - I need my mom.
- Kaibil Kaibil! A specialized unit of certain Latin American Military, a death squad.
Could that have been what she was screaming at your father? I guess it shouldn't be a surprise, - you turning out how you have - Kaibil! Considering where you really come from.
Hey.
Hey.
Where am I? I'm sorry, I'm not supposed to I'll get somebody.
Annie.
Hey.
How you feeling? A little confused.
Where am I? You're home.
Seal team touched down at the blast site after the strike.
Found you unconscious half a mile out.
We couldn't exactly take you to the local hospital.
We weren't supposed to be there in the first place.
So you were stabilized and flown back.
How long was I out? You've been in and out of consciousness for about 40 hours.
I should be dead.
- You got lucky.
- No.
Before the strike, Sayer, he He exposed me to the virus.
You don't have any symptoms.
You were running a fever for a while, but aside from that and a few scrapes, the doctors say you're in good health.
Most of the bodies at the site were burnt beyond recognition, but we got DNA.
We're hoping to get a positive I.
D.
On Sayer within a few days.
You won't.
He had a heads-up.
Probably cleared the area before we lit it up.
He's still alive.
Are you sure? I spoke to your mother.
You should call her.
What'd you tell her? The cover story is, you suffered a concussion from that headshot during the Austin game, became disoriented, and were brought here for observation.
Press seemed to have bought it.
It's amazing the things you guys can get people to believe.
Galan helped us push the narrative.
Galan? So he survived.
You think he'd let a little thing like a bullet to the chest stop him? What are you doing? Senna.
Shouldn't you be resting? Like, at home? I am home.
- Look, Senna - No, just let me.
I'm sorry about what I said at the hospital.
Oh, there's no need to apologize.
I always told myself that she would've made things better, made me better.
Because, well, this It was hard.
- I've tried, Senna.
- I know.
I've tried and I'll keep trying, no matter how much you push me away.
Do you understand? Yeah.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry for everything.
It's all right.
It's all right.
Everything is going to be all right.
Now, tell me.
What's the biggest audience you've ever had for a performance? Oh, I mean, mostly small clubs.
Early too, before the big crowd comes.
Well, I have the biggest crowd in the city, and they all arrive at the same time.
How would you like to sing the national anthem before tomorrow's game? Wait.
Really? But that's, like, in front of 30,000 people.
I've listened to your demo, and I'm not an expert, but I think you're ready.
Okay.
Okay, yeah, I'll do it.
That's my girl.
Oh, excuse me, I've got to take this.
Gene, thank you for returning my call.
How's the outreach going? That's good.
I think it's time we gathered.
Tony thinks Sayer's alive.
He may not be a very reliable source right now.
Thinks he was exposed to the virus.
If that was true, he'd be dead, or at least close.
If he is alive, then the threat is too.
I agree.
But we have destroyed his lab, his stockpile of the virus.
At the very least, we've dealt a major setback.
- What is this? - Vaccine sweepstakes.
Looks like we have a winner.
She looks familiar.
Meredith Wright of Valterra Laboratories.
Sorry to keep you waiting.
I'll jump right into it.
I understand there is news on the vaccine front.
Yes.
As you know, engineering a vaccine from scratch would take months.
But we already have stockpiles of a vaccine from a virus which shares several antigens with your Ze'Otec strain.
We believe it can be an effective combatant.
How effective? Not 100%, but no vaccines are.
This would be a stop-gap measure to ensure protection from a nationwide outbreak.
The important thing now is to expedite the process.
- How long? - With approval, initial lots can be into pharmacies and hospitals within 48 hours.
I applaud you and your company for moving so quickly on this, but I'd still recommend running the vaccine through safety testing.
We went through phase 3 trials on this when it was developed.
I was led to believe the situation was urgent, that an attack was imminent.
That was our thinking, but we are currently reassessing the threat.
Then let me just state for the record, in lieu of an imminent attack, this process should be expedited, but not rushed.
Hello, gentlemen.
How was your flight? Long, but uneventful, thankfully.
Please be very careful with that one.
Thank God you're okay.
Is it true, is everything gone? Not everything.
How was your call this morning? They're being cautious, they want more tests.
- I expected as much.
- You did? Well, they destroyed the lab.
They think they've bought themselves some time.
I shall have to make them aware that time is not a luxury they have.
You don't have to be here, you know.
Yeah, I know.
Who was he? Kid saved my life.
Now he's dead from the virus and I'm fine.
That doesn't make any sense.
There's something else.
Sayer kept records on the members of his group.
Look who showed up.
Margot.
This doesn't track.
She was trying to stop him.
Yeah, well, her real name is Rebecca Osterman.
I looked her up and that right there is all I could find on her.
Looks like she's been off the grid a while.
But now that we have a name, maybe you can find her.
Perhaps she can lead us to Sayer.
I'll put some feelers out.
Good.
I don't want to wait ten years to find the guy like Bin Laden.
Yeah, I don't think you're gonna have to wait that long.
Sayer's here.
CCTV camera picked him up 40 minutes ago at veteran's memorial walk.
Near the federal building.
What the hell is he doing there? From the looks of it, littering.
- Maybe a dead drop? - Looks like.
So a guy who avoids any detection for 30 years gets himself caught on camera within two days of being in L.
A.
If there's one thing we know about Sayer, he's got an ego the size of a small planet.
Guy like that thinks he can do anything, go anywhere.
Guy like that doesn't like people turning on him.
If he's here, he could be gunning for Galan.
Give Galan the heads-up.
We're going to the park.
Ah, Tony.
Aren't we quite the pair? - How do you feel? - Lucky.
They say the bullet missed my pulmonary artery by a millimeter.
And you? Well, let's just say it's been a pretty crazy 48 hours.
So I hear.
Annie fill you in on what happened over there? Oh, just the broad strokes.
You know how she is.
Well, I found Sayer.
He's on to you.
Why does it matter? He's dead.
Not only is he not dead, but we picked him up on camera about an hour ago.
He's here.
And what's the CIA doing about it? Well, I can't speak for the CIA, but if I find him I'm gonna kill him.
Thank you for coming to my aid when I was shot.
I owe you.
Yeah, well, I'm just doing my job.
- Protecting the asset.
- Well, surely there's some way - that I can repay you.
- That's not necessary.
Your family, then, let me repay them.
They can have a luxury suite for tomorrow's game.
Well, I'm not playing tomorrow.
Concussion, remember? Well, perhaps they'd like to come anyway.
Thank you.
One more thing.
Margot Atkins.
Remember her? Sayer kept a special members-only file.
Apparently, she's in the club.
Or was.
Does that make any sense to you? She would be acting against Sayer by taking off - with that artifact.
- There were rumors about some disaffected members who went rogue and started acting at cross-purposes to the group.
I don't suppose you know any of these rogue members? I wish I did.
I would love to sit down and compare notes.
What is it? It's jaggery.
A candy.
You sure? Yep.
He works in the building.
Said a guy in a suit gave him 50 bucks to pick up the bag and start walking.
- Sayer? - Sounds like it.
Hold him.
What was Sayer doing here? He wanted us to know he was here.
But why? There.
Follow him.
Hello? Don't come in here, California.
John Doe has the upper hand.
Hey, bro.
You know you don't gotta use the code anymore, right? I mean, we're not sharing a room.
Better safe than sorry.
New Victoria's Secret catalogue came in today, got me all nostalgic and shit.
I don't need to know.
Here.
Mr.
Galan got you a suite for tomorrow's game.
I don't know if you were thinking of going oh, I am now.
- Is mom here? - No, school day.
- Do you want me to tell her? - No, no, it's okay.
It's just kind of between me and her.
Right.
Give me a second.
Yeah? All right, I'll be right in.
Um, I gotta head out.
I'll see you tomorrow, yeah? Yeah.
I'm just gonna go.
Probably best.
Meredith Wright of Valterra Laboratories.
You know I said I thought she looked familiar? Now I know why.
You've got to be kidding.
She was at Sayer's lecture.
But that was 30 years ago.
And she wasn't just a spectator, she was the grad student that brought him there to talk.
She looks the same.
Maybe Sayer's miracle drug isn't a scam after all.
So we reach out to the private sector to create a vaccine for Sayer's virus And her company just happens to be the first to market.
- Never been about the virus.
- No.
This whole time, it's been about the vaccine.
Lucien Sayer is in Los Angeles.
Where is he? Who? You were a microbiology post-doc at Oxford.
You've been one of his followers ever since.
I attended quite a few lectures during my time at Oxford.
In the last decade, you've visited Myanmar over a dozen times, probably to plan things face-to-face.
What things was I supposedly planning? Releasing the virus on flight 409.
I saw what happened to those people.
It was horrifying.
But that was the idea, right? To scare us.
You even planted a crisis actor to make us think that more attacks were to follow.
But that was a lie.
It was all about the vaccine, wasn't it? To incite fear and panic so that the government would rush it to market.
How much do you stand to make on it? Whatever it is, I'm sure the Lamarck Foundation gets a pretty sizeable kickback.
So Sayer had people paying a million dollars a year to Adaptive, and he lived in a jungle hut half the size of my apartment.
What's he gonna do with more money? R&D, develop new drugs.
Mad scientists need a lot of infrastructure.
Say I had this information you were looking for.
What interest would I have in giving it to you? - What do you want? - To teach.
When this is over, I'll resign my position at Valterra, find a non-threatening job in an Ivy League Chem Department, and you and I And the people in the sky will from that point forward pretend we've never met.
It's never gonna happen.
Then neither is this.
Emily, welcome.
Please, Andres, don't get up.
Oh, it's fine.
Please, sit.
Oh.
Well, how long will you need that? Oh, not long.
It's all in the mind, really old age, weakness.
That's the one thing Sayer did not take into account.
The mind it's the best weapon we have against our own frailty.
You know, if I could find the right motivation, I could rid myself of this cane right now.
Well, I hope you find it.
I was surprised to hear from you.
To tell you the truth, ever since our lunch, I've been having doubts.
Have you? Mm.
I can't tell you how I know, but I suspect that Sayer had something to do with what happened to those people on the plane in San Francisco.
I think you may be right.
So what are we going to do about it? There are others who share our dissatisfaction.
Really? What others? I can't tell you that.
But if you're interested We will be meeting soon.
And what is the agenda of this meeting? To remind us of our core capitalist values Protect and promote our interests by any means necessary.
And this time, all the players must make themselves known.
No more hiding? Hmm.
Well, call me old-fashioned, but I prefer to be looked in the eye Even when being stabbed in the back.
- Well, I'll think about it.
- Please do.
Oh, and in the meantime, perhaps you'd like to be our guest at tomorrow's game.
Senna is going to sing the National Anthem.
Oh, gosh, I wish I could, but unfortunately, I have plans.
- Oh.
- Business, you know how it is.
- Unfortunately, I do.
- I'll be in touch.
When can I see him? Soon.
Pretty fast with that thing.
Pretty fast yourself.
I understand you've been looking for me.
Yeah.
Thought we might talk.
Sure.
Drop the gun.
Ladies first.
Sorry, it looks like I'm running low on refreshments.
I'll take some of that Tequila.
So Where do we start? I don't know.
I've never had a girl fake her name, steal a 4,000-year-old plague-ridden Buddha, and then leave without saying good-bye.
Well, I've never been fucked by a soccer-playing CIA agent who acted like he was there because he wanted to be.
So let's not pretend you're the only one who got played, huh? So you're really one of Lucien Sayer's people? I was brought into the group by my husband.
You're married? The hits just keep coming.
I was married.
He's dead now.
Perfectly healthy Heart attack.
- I knew better.
- So what? You think he was killed? He was a scientist too.
Biotech.
He was smart.
Too smart, as it turned out.
Figured out the endgame.
Wasn't supposed to.
So you think that Sayer you knew about the virus.
You knew what he was going to do.
The virus was only part of it.
It was all to create demand.
Yeah, for the vaccine, we know.
But why? Does he need more money? Mm.
It's not about the money.
It's about what the vaccine contains.
You're saying there's something else in the vaccine? - What? - To understand that, you need to understand Sayer.
When the scientific community turned against him, that's when he thought of the idea.
To create a world where no one could ever question him again Or betray him.
A world where his word would reign supreme.
Look.
Dude likes himself, I get it.
But how does the vaccine factor into it? He developed something out in the jungle A new drug, one to control people.
Makes them suggestible Obedient.
The plant, it makes animals easy.
They obey.
The plant.
I saw it in his lab.
Then you saw his dream.
Excuse me.
Annie, it's me.
Get Smith.
You guys will wanna hear this.
Ms.
Wright I apologize for the late hour.
They haven't left you in here all this time alone, have they? I understand you want to make a deal.
I am uniquely qualified to offer you one.
- I'm listening.
- In fact, I'll clear the decks on you if you tell us how it works.
I'm sorry? The vaccine.
It contains a control agent used to manipulate behavior.
You do know how crazy that sounds.
It does sound crazy.
But the truth is, Lucien Sayer has been on our radar for quite some time, and we would be very interested in seeing his research.
I don't know how it works.
I can tell you what's in it, I can tell you how it's made, but I don't know how it's activated.
That's how Sayer operates.
No one ever sees the big picture.
Hmm.
Well, maybe, uh He could tell us himself.
Where is he? I don't know that either.
Well, what do you know? He's planning something.
Something to re-up demand for the vaccine.
Another attack? Where? When? I don't know.
Well, then you are of no use to me.
You had an agent abducted a few weeks ago.
He spent some time in the hospital after being injected with an unknown compound.
How do you know about that? The compound It was ours.
My agent was in a coma for three days, then woke up.
Is that what this drug does, put people to sleep? Why would Sayer want to do that? It wasn't a coma.
It was an incubation period.
Stop your right hand.
Raise it to your temple.
My brother has prepared you well.
We need every available public camera being monitored, every cop armed with a picture of Sayer.
We need to find him before this thing hits.
I assume we should also be exploring quarantine protocols? Yeah.
How'd you get her to talk? She wouldn't tell me anything.
Well, I've been doing this a lot longer than you.
What about Peacott? Have you reached him yet? I've called him twice.
I told you, he's late.
What's going on? Since when are you so interested in Noah? We might have another problem.
Main entrance around the other side.
Mr.
Galan should have me on a list.
Security detail.
Peacott, got it.
You're clear.
Stay cool.
It's gonna be a hot one.
Will do.
Thank you for hooking us up, bro.
No problem.
Ah, man.
Now this is nice.
Check out this view.
- Check out this spread.
- My God.
- It's like an icebox in here.
- It really isn't, mom.
Ma has thin blood.
Happens when you get old.
Just lower it a little, please.
"You welcomed me into your home.
Now I welcome you into mine " "Andres.
" He's so sweet.
I cannot believe anybody would shoot him.
Ooh.
Champagne, anyone? Hit me.
Where's Tony? He said he was going to watch the game with us, right? Maybe that's him.
- Hey.
- Hi.
Hey, ladies.
Come meet the fam.
Mom This is Ivy and Lana.
- Hi.
- Such a pleasure.
An honor.
Thank you.
I'm Javi.
Hi.
Hey, everyone, Ali strong here handling Riot control for today's pre-game show.
And it's a hot one in L.
A.
As temperatures approach against visiting New England FC.
Oh, and I've just spotted Tony Bravo here on the concourse.
Tony, can you give us a minute? - Oh, uh - Just a couple of questions.
Come on.
Sure, Ali.
I see you're out of uniform.
I guess this means you're sitting this one out.
- How's the head? - Oh, uh, it's all right thanks all things considered.
Well, they'll miss you out there.
What do you think our chances are? New England's a good team.
Tony? I'm sorry, what was that? How do you think the Riot's gonna match up to New England? Uh, good.
Good.
You know, they have a lot of talent at every position, but, you know, I think we've got 'em beat when it comes to speed and endurance.
Thank you.
Could I trouble you to put the football game on the television for me? I would, if it was football season.
Of course.
Soccer.
Riot's playing today, right? The odds are of you returning next season? Oh, I can't really say.
Of course I'd love to come back and play for sure, but, you know, I'll just leave that to the guys upstairs.
They should give that guy an extension.
Matador is one tough son of a bitch.
Apparently so.
Go.
Hey.
Any movement on Sayer? No, but there's been another development.
Noah may be involved.
Noah? Whatever Sayer put in the vaccine, that's what Samuel gave Noah when he was taken.
We think they may be using him.
- Jesus.
- I know.
- No, he's here.
- What? Noah, I just saw him.
At the stadium? Yes, he was carrying something, a case.
place to start an outbreak.
And to get his revenge on Galan.
- Noah.
- Hey, Bravo.
What are you doing here? What do you mean? I'm just waiting.
For what? For nothing.
I'm just waiting.
Hey, listen to me.
You were carrying a case.
Where is it? I'm just waiting.
Noah, I need to know how this attack is going down.
I need you to help me.
Come on, think.
Yo, your gun, I need it.
I don't have it.
Never mind.
Just stay put, okay? Annie.
Hey.
I think I know how they're gonna hit the stadium.
Please welcome recording artist and YouTube sensation Senna Galan.
Oh say can you see By the dawn's early light What so proudly we hailed At the twilight's last gleaming Whose broad stripes And bright stars Through the perilous fight O'er the ramparts we watched Were so gallantly streaming And the rocket's red glare The bombs bursting in air Gave proof through the night That our flag was still there Oh say does that star-spangled banner Yet wave O'er the land of the free And the home Of the Brave Tony? You scared me.
What are you doing here? Just been wanting to talk to you.
I figured you were still doing the papaya thing.
You remember.
You kidding? How many times did we come out here late at night to eat this with you? No, you would come out here 'cause you didn't want to go to sleep.
And then Ricky would come out, and pretty soon the whole family would be out here and it would be 1:00 A.
M on a school night.
You said that it reminded you of chiapas.
And of dad.
I didn't have much to remind me of him.
But I had soccer.
None of those memories were real, were they? 'Cause the guy that I thought I remember never existed, did he? Was he a soldier? Why would you ask that? Was he a kaibil? - Where did you hear - Answer the question.
Yes.
But it wasn't that simple, Tony.
Okay? You wouldn't understand.
It wasn't his decision.
You know what those people did? I was trying to protect you.
You lied to me.
Everything I thought I knew, everything I thought I wanted, my dream None of it was real.
No.
No, Tony.
Tony.
Tony.
Tony.
Tony! Mr.
Bravo.
I must say, you are proving a most difficult man to kill.
Let's have a little chat, shall we? A spy masquerading as a footballer.
Whoever would have thought of such a thing? Well, I wish I could say I came up with the idea.
I'm happy to introduce you to the people who did.
Your friends at the CIA? No, I'll pass, thank you.
Only you can answer the particular set of questions I have.
Where are you from, Tony? Look around, man.
I'm from here.
No.
Your family, your blood, where is it from? None of your business.
How's that? It became my business when you survived direct exposure to the virus.
By all rights, you should be dead, Mr.
Bravo.
Yeah.
Bad batch, I guess.
Something else In you.
That something could prove very interesting to a man of science Like myself.
You know what your problem is? What's that? Too many ideas.
That's fine, Tony.
I don't actually need a live specimen.
What are you doing here? Once upon a time, you protected me.
I thought I'd return the favor.
Tony.
- Hey.
- Hey.
You get some sleep? Not really.
Got a lot of stuff in my head.
Yeah, you had quite a night.
Quite a year.
How's Noah? He's okay.
He doesn't remember anything.
They're keeping him at the hospital for observation, and he's gonna take a little break.
Yeah, yeah.
I think I'm gonna take a break too.
Good.
You deserve one.
Sayer's dead, the threat's been neutralized, you can resume your life as a legitimate soccer star.
Who knows if the Riot will even renew my contract? Well, Anne Spencer could make some calls.
- I don't think so.
- Really? I thought that's what you've always wanted.
Yeah, I thought so too.
But, um I got to do some traveling.
Head down south Figure some things out.
What things? Family stuff.
Is this about your father? You knew.
Yes.
I was under orders to keep it quiet.
"Irrelevant to the mission.
" Smith's orders? Yeah.
I'll see you around, Annie.
Tony, wait.
If you really are leaving Then you should have this.
You can get in a lot of trouble for this.
What can I say? You're a bad influence.
Thank you.
I assume you've heard about Sayer? That's why I came.
I suppose it took the guesswork out of your decision to join us, not to mention the risk.
Well, you know what they say.
"The king is dead, long live the king.
" You said there'd be a meeting.
Is that still happening? Yes, it's happening.
Tonight, in Las Vegas.
I expect the consolidation of power will be a messy affair, which is why I have to surround myself with people I know I can trust.
And I have known for some time that you, dear Emily, do not qualify.
Which is why I'm rescending your invitation.
Lucien Sayer is no more.
But to make an end is also to make a beginning.
So Let us begin.
- This is Smith.
- Hello, Llewyn.
Ma'am, I'm here with agent Peacott right now.
Never mind that, we have another problem.
What is it? It's Bravo, he knows.
- He's gone.
- Gone where? Where do you think?
