NCIS s11e22 Episode Script

Shooter

Marine, put the camera down.
This is the photo taken last September by Marine photojournalist Staff Sergeant Martin Roe.
He's known as Shooter.
He was assigned to a joint Army/Marine task force in Farah Province.
I saw the photo in the Post.
How did it get out? Roe gave it to the task force commander.
Who gave it to the press, well, that's a matter of conjecture, and it will be an issue in the court-martial.
A lot of Army people have accused Roe of being the leak.
Come in.
Hey, Chad.
You ready to sell me that old pickup of yours? Not a chance.
What's up? Need your help.
The man in this picture, Army First Lieutenant Michael Waters, is being court-martialed for the death of the Afghan villager.
It's hard not to have heard about it in Washington.
The lieutenant claims that the villager was a Taliban terrorist and it was a justified shooting.
Sergeant Roe, who took the picture and is presently under my command, claims it was a revenge execution.
He said, he said.
Court-martial started last week.
Staff Sergeant Roe was due to testify on Friday, but he didn't show.
They can't find him.
So they recessed until tomorrow.
When's the last time you saw him? Four days ago.
He's the key witness, and he was looking forward to testifying.
They don't have -uch of a case without him.
Okay.
Let's get on it.
Gentlemen, I've already heard from SECNAV and the commandant of the Marine Corps.
Army's pissed that a photo taken by a Marine was leaked to the press.
It's making them look bad.
Tread lightly.
You're late.
I had something to do.
Boss isn't in yet? Uh, he beat us all in.
He's with the director.
Is our little Timmy trying to grow a beard? Mmm.
Going for the bad-boy look? Cut it out, Tony.
I think beards are sexy.
Can an NCIS agent grow one? Not you.
I'm not growing a beard.
My face started itching on Friday, and I went to see a dermatologist on the way home.
It got worse over the weekend, and I went back to the doctor's this morning.
She told me I have pseudofolliculitis.
Isn't that a Mary Poppins song? It's not a big deal, apparently.
She gave me something for the itch and told me not to shave for a week.
You get a note from the doctor for Gibbs? Ooh, hmm.
Here he comes.
Who's he with? Ah, it's Commander Hendricks.
Public affairs officer on the Navy Yard.
McGee, put up the service records of Staff Sergeant Martin Roe.
R-O-E.
Hey, Commander.
DiNozzo.
That's the Marine photographer - that took the picture.
- He's missing.
He was due at the Army court-martial Friday.
Called him all weekend.
Left messages.
Got no response.
Even checked out his apartment.
Do you have his cell phone number? I could do a quick location trace.
Yeah.
Talk to the family? Yes.
His parents in Flagstaff.
They haven't heard from him in weeks.
Anything you can tell us, like friends or enemies? Roe's only been back from Afghanistan since the first of the year.
I don't know that much about him.
Except that he really gets into his assignments.
What's he working on now? A piece on homeless military veterans in the DC area.
Well, Roe's phone is either turned off or his battery's dead.
DiNozzo, Bishop, get a warrant.
Check out Sergeant Roe's residence.
I want to talk to the person who benefits most from Staff Sergeant Roe's disappearance, Army Lieutenant Waters.
Keep me in the loop.
Appreciate you coming in, Lieutenant Waters.
Yeah, not a problem.
I have nowhere else to be today.
Maybe you didn't hear-- my court-martial was put on hold.
Uh, Special Agent Gibbs, I'm Major Huggins, Lieutenant Waters' JAG counsel.
I thought I should accompany him.
We're just not sure why NCIS wants to talk with my client.
Staff Sergeant Roe is missing, and we're trying to find him.
We're talking to his coworkers, people who know him.
Obviously, I have to interview the person who stands to gain the most from his absence.
What are you saying? Staff Sergeant Roe not testifying has a big impact on your trial.
Are you accusing me of having something to do with that lying dirtbag not showing up? I'm not accusing you of anything.
It says "interrogation" on the outside of that door, Special Agent Gibbs.
That's a little intimidating.
And, obviously, this is sounding like something more than just an interview.
I've got nothing to hide.
I've been restricted to post at Fort McNair since I was brought back from Afghanistan.
Check the logs.
We will.
I think we are done here.
You know, I got a theory why that bastard didn't show up.
Michael.
He went into hiding so he wouldn't have to tell his lies in court and perjure himself.
What? Roe shot a photograph.
You shot a villager.
Hopefully a jury will decide if it was justified.
Hopefully.
I know what this is all about.
Look at his haircut.
You a Marine, Gibbs? This is one dumb jarhead covering for another.
Sergeant Roe is a really good photographer.
I just can't get used to this.
It creeps me out.
What? Just going through people's stuff without their permission.
It's an invasion of privacy.
It's my favorite part of the job.
I love it.
You find out people's secrets.
And I have discovered that the smallest things can tell you a whole lot.
Like what? Who they really are.
On the surface, our staff sergeant's a 28-year-old Marine combat photographer who goes into battle armed with just a camera.
But, below the surface he's a sentimental romantic.
How do you know that? Last month's cable bill.
Look at those pay-per-view choices.
The Vow? The Notebook? Sabrina? Both versions? I mean, I understand the Bogey one, but the Harrison Ford one? Terrible.
All right.
I'll go through the recent pictures on his camera.
No.
We'll do that when we get back to the office.
I want you to go into the bathroom.
That's where the darkest secrets lurk.
It's kind of nice getting out of the office and into the field, isn't it? Yeah.
Wait till you do your first 24-hour, all-night surveillance.
McGee already warned me.
I think I found something.
Roe had at least one enemy.
"We know where you live.
Wise up and shut up.
" No signature.
Maybe Abby can pull prints.
Bishop? Bishop, can you hear me? I found something, too.
Was Roe an addict? Those the recent pictures from Roe's camera? Yeah.
There are some really poignant shots of homeless people.
One guy with a dog is in a lot of them.
McGee, what's taking so long with the timeline? All those pictures were time- and date-stamped.
Yeah, they also have a GPS location.
I'm laying out pictures on a map to show where they were taken.
I am almost done.
The final picture was taken last Wednesday.
Looks like most of 'em were in a two-block area.
Yeah, near here.
Just outside the Navy Yard.
Let's go for a walk.
Maybe we can find someone who's seen Sergeant Roe.
Said you had something, Abbs.
Afternoon, Ms.
Sciuto.
Hey, Commander.
Find a fingerprint on that note? Actually, I found two.
They're thumbprints.
They both belong to Sergeant Roe, but that's not what I wanted to show you.
I found traces of fentanyl and heroin on the spoon.
It's a cocktail commonly called China White on the street.
I found the same drug in the reservoir of the syringe.
And I found Sergeant Roe's DNA on the needle.
I don't believe it.
No way that kid was on drugs.
Maybe you didn't know him that well.
Whew.
Any luck? No.
Me, neither.
It's hard to believe we work only a few blocks from here.
Well, hold on.
This picture was taken right here.
Several of 'em were taken over there.
And according to the GPS, this picture was taken from inside this building.
All right, well, let's see if we can find a way in.
Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore.
Oh.
What's that stench? Ugh! What a sad existence.
Tony, there's a lot of people living in here.
They're dying here, too.
This building's been a nightmare.
I've had a problem with drug addicts and the homeless.
I board it up, they break in.
It's a losing battle.
When's the last time you were inside? I don't know.
Couple weeks ago.
And now there's a dead body? Never be able to sell this place.
Well, this is definitely Staff Sergeant Roe.
When, Duck? Educated guess, four or five days.
Preliminary cause an overdose? Yeah, well, this dried foam around his mouth is consistent with that conclusion.
Oh, we'll know more when we do a full tox screen.
I don't think he's been using long.
No previous needle marks or infections.
Something wrong, boss? It's just not where I thought this one was going.
Got a call in the car.
With the key witness dead, it looks like the charges are going to be dropped.
Court-martial proceedings against Lieutenant Waters will be dismissed.
How convenient.
Staff Sergeant Roe's family been notified? Yeah.
CACO team's on it.
Yeah, it's Gibbs.
Can I help you, Director? On my way down, Duck.
Hey, Ducky and Abby have something.
Want to come along? Sure.
Looking a little scruffy, McGee.
That was quick.
Always good to see you, Director.
What did you two find out? Cause of death, as suspected, was a drug overdose.
It's a combination of heroin and fentanyl, same proportions as found on the needle in his apartment.
However, that's not why we called you down here.
After the autopsy was finished, but before I put the body away, I noticed a slight abrasion on the sergeant's nose.
Like one would get from vigorously rubbing with a handkerchief.
Let me show you.
Just tell us what you know, Duck.
I-I swabbed the anterior nasal passage and sent the sample up to Abby.
I found residue of high concentrations of chloroform.
Our conclusion is that the sergeant was incapacitated by the chloroform before a lethal injection of heroin was administered to his unconscious body.
Ergo Sergeant Roe was murdered.
Staff Sergeant Roe is no longer a missing person, because he's dead.
It's a murder.
Well, Waters, the Army lieutenant, has got to be at the top of the suspect list.
He was gunning for Roe.
But he was confined to the base.
Yeah, but his assault team vehemently backs his story and blames Roe for his court-martial.
Well, check it out, McGee.
Photos we found on Roe's camera show he was digging deep into the street subculture.
We found his body in a building where the homeless squat.
Put up those pictures.
They're interesting.
Maybe Roe stuck his nose or his camera in the wrong place.
The guy with the dog's in a lot of them.
Yeah, we noticed that.
Bishop, blow up that one.
Move in on the tattoo.
- The guy was Navy.
- Roe's C.
O.
said that he was working on a story about homeless veterans.
Roe spent a lot of time with this guy.
Find out who he is.
I know who he is.
That's Dave and Blue.
Dave who? Just Dave.
He doesn't have a last name.
Got to have a last name.
He's a dog.
Dogs don't have last names.
The guy's name is Blue? Yeah.
That's what they call him.
I see him and Dave by the off-ramp almost every single morning.
I gave Blue that shirt last Christmas.
And I bring Dave dog food a couple times a week.
Run facial recognition of Navy veterans.
You know, I actually haven't seen Blue in the last few days.
Did he do something? Is he in trouble? I don't know.
Uh-uh.
Come on.
Hi.
Excuse me.
NCIS.
Have you? Tell me you got something.
No.
I mean, I can understand if people don't recognize the picture of Sergeant Roe.
But Abby said she's seen Blue and his dog around here for years.
Somebody must have seen them.
Trust me, they have, but they're not gonna tell us.
We're the enemy.
We're flashing badges, we got a gun, we're asking questions.
We're what they fear.
Authority.
So what do we do? Blend in.
Go undercover? Oh.
It won't work.
We've been all over the neighborhood.
I'm very good at disguises.
No, we won't pull it off.
You know, you're right, probie.
But I think I know one agent who might be able to.
He's been looking a little scruffy lately.
Major.
I have got a problem, Director Vance.
What's the problem? I received a call from your Agent Gibbs.
He wants me to bring Lieutenant Waters back in.
There's no point.
He's already been interviewed.
Yesterday, we were investigating a missing Marine.
Today, we're investigating his murder.
And I thought we made it clear to Agent Gibbs.
Waters couldn't be involved.
He's been restricted to post at Fort McNair.
We found a threatening letter in Staff Sergeant Roe's apartment.
It could have come from Waters, or a member of his team.
They've been very loyal to him.
For good reason.
The man is a hero.
Three tours of duty in a war zone.
Multiple decorations, including two Purple Hearts.
He was in that Afghan village to flush out a sniper who killed one of his men the day before.
He shot that villager in self-defense.
That may be.
It's for your Army court-martial to decide.
My agency's concern is with the murder of a U.
S.
Marine in Washington, DC.
The court-martial is not going to happen.
And I want NCIS to stop harassing my client.
You know what I think? This whole thing is just some inter-service rivalry.
You're wrong there, Major.
NCIS is a civilian agency.
We don't report to anyone in uniform.
We will follow every possible lead wherever it may take us.
Get Waters over here, or we'll drag him in in handcuffs.
Hey, Abby.
Hey.
Still working on the facial recognition? Yeah.
The beard's making it kind of difficult.
Hey, uh, where is McGee? I've taken over his investigation on Lieutenant Waters' unit, but can't read his handwriting.
He's, um he's in there with Tony and Christopher from tech services, but proceed with caution.
He's not a happy camper.
Yeah.
Yeah, that's real good, Christopher.
It's gonna cover the earpiece.
Perfect.
We just need a little more grime under the nails.
Tony, stay out of it.
Yeah.
I can do more.
What do you think, Bishop? Mmm wow.
You look homeless.
So, uh, I'm going over your notes, and at the end of your interview with the medic on Lieutenant Waters' team Uh, can't make this out.
It looks like "WPF"? Yeah.
That's my shorthand.
WPF-- "when pigs fly"" I didn't believe a word the guy said.
Ah.
Thanks.
All right, I think we got the visual perfect here.
But we're missing something.
What are we missing? Odor.
Oh, I didn't know you wanted to go that far.
Uh, I don't.
I've got something.
Oh, wow.
That's nice.
Oh, God.
Oh.
Oh.
Aah! God, what is that? Oh! Certified, purified, organic cat urine and body odor.
- Oh.
- Ew! Ew.
Oh.
I'm out of here.
Oh, my God! You guys.
You're destroying my lab.
Okay, I've got facial recognition back.
Blue's real name is Everett Turpin.
It's so weird.
I've never thought of him as an Everett.
But he was a petty officer first class, and he was honorably discharged in June 2003.
Oh! Clean up this stuff! Oh.
You're going to pay for this, Tony.
Hmm? You're still here.
Oh, yeah.
How's it going? Uh, could use some help.
Yeah? What's the problem? The civilian lawyer representing the members of Lieutenant Waters' team isn't cooperating.
Won't give us handwriting samples to compare to the threatening note found in Sergeant Roe's apartment.
I'll make a call.
You check the logs on Lieutenant Waters? McGee did.
The only times he left Fort McNair were for court-martial appearances and his interview with you on Monday.
And he was accompanied at all times by his JAG lawyer, Major Huggins.
Fort McNair is only minutes from the abandoned building where Sergeant Roe's body was found.
Could he have slipped off base? Waters wearing an electronic monitor? Nope.
He just has to check in every two hours.
You heard from McGee or DiNozzo? Uh, not a word, and they've been gone for hours.
You better pick out a spot, McGrubby.
All the good ones are getting taken.
I'm not spending the night out here, Tony.
I'm cold and I'm starving.
I'd say stop by the car-- there's a slice of pizza left, but we can't blow your cover, man.
I've been out here for hours and I've gotten nowhere.
No one's seen him for days.
They think he moved on.
Don't give up.
Boy, it's pretty toasty in this car.
You know, this isn't working.
I want to go home.
You're not leaving.
If you don't drive me, I'll take a cab.
Good luck finding one in this neighborhood, especially looking and smelling like you do.
You know what? I'm walking to the car, right now.
I'll leave.
No, you won't.
Hey, I got an idea.
Why don't you go back to the mission? They got a bed there.
And a hot meal.
Maybe you can make some friends.
Maybe somebody knew something.
McGee.
On your six.
Hey, you, stop.
You the guy asking about Blue? Uh, yeah.
What's he to you? He helped me out.
I owe him.
Have you seen him? A few days ago.
Wasn't looking good.
You see that nosy photographer that was following him around? Yeah.
I heard he took him to get help.
Where'd they go? Doesn't matter.
Rumor is Blue died.
Thank you very much.
Everett Turpin, aka Blue, died last Wednesday night at the First Street Urgent Care Clinic.
What's the cause of death? Catastrophic heart failure.
Last Wednesday.
That's one day before Ducky estimated Sergeant Roe was murdered by an overdose.
The building where we found his body isn't that far from the clinic.
So a Marine photojournalist is doing a story on a homeless vet.
What's the connection? Boss, I don't think that we should rule out Lieutenant Waters and his team.
Sergeant Roe was gonna be the key witness against him.
Roe received a threatening letter from somebody.
Waters' team is in Washington as potential witnesses.
I say we put a little pressure on them.
Well, yeah.
Go for it, McGee.
Yeah.
Hey, guys.
Did you find Blue? Hey, Abbs.
Hey.
I'm sorry.
He's dead.
What happened? He had a heart attack.
Oh.
Oh, he was such a such a sweet man.
He had such kind eyes.
I thought maybe he had some problems.
And Dave was such a good companion.
He kept him all calm and together.
I wish I could have done more to help him.
Abby, you can't solve everyone's problems.
Some people have demons they have to overcome.
Yeah.
Wait, what about Dave? The dog? Where is he? We didn't see him.
I couldn't imagine living on the streets.
Lot of reasons that happens, Bishop.
At least there's a place like this.
Sorry to keep you waiting, Agent Gibbs.
I'm Lorin Davis.
I'm the clinic director.
I was dealing with a woman in there with a very sick infant.
Yeah.
No problem.
This is Special Agent Bishop.
Please, have a seat.
You were asking about Everett Turpin.
I believe he was known in the neighborhood as Blue.
We were told he died of heart failure.
Yes.
It was very sad.
He wasn't that old.
But, you know, life on the streets can be very tough.
When did he come in? Um last Wednesday.
He was complaining of shortness of breath and chest pains.
How long after Blue came in did he die? You know, it was all very sudden.
Uh, his vitals were taken.
Blood pressure was low.
The attending physician ordered an EKG, one of the nurses was about to administer it-- that's when he went into full cardiac arrest.
The doctor immediately tried to resuscitate him with a defibrillator, and that's when I a called 911.
Where were you gonna send him? Uh, the E.
R.
at Washington General.
We're not equipped to handle something like that.
We're just a clinic.
Did the paramedics get here? Yes, within ten minutes.
But it was too late.
Who called time of death? Dr.
Novak.
He here now? No.
No, Dr.
Novak has a private practice in Reston.
He donates one day of his week to help here.
Novak sign the death certificate? Yes.
Did, uh Did this man bring Blue in? You know, he wasn't wearing a uniform but yeah, I think that's the guy.
In fact, I remember talking to him in the waiting room.
He was very concerned about his friend.
And after Blue passed, he spent a private moment with the body.
Can we get a copy of Turpin's death certificate and medical file? Oh, uh, certainly.
Thank you.
Is it always this busy here? Well, more so this year.
It was a long, cold winter.
Had to be tough living on the streets.
Dave, stop it.
What's the matter? Dave.
Hi.
Hi.
Hi.
Hi.
I've been looking all over for you.
I was so worried.
Hi.
Hi.
Hey, I'm Abby.
How do you know Dave? Um, well, I used to see him all the time with Blue.
Over by the off-ramp.
I feed him.
And he loves these biscuits.
Hi.
Where'd you find him? What, you think I stole him? Blue asked me to watch him.
Um Blue passed away.
Blue never leaves Dave for more than a day.
I figured it was bad.
What's your name? How long have you known Blue? I don't know.
He looked out for me.
Like a big brother.
I could totally see that.
So where's your family? Dead.
Where do you live? I mean, do you have a place to sleep? Lady, you ask too many questions.
Come on, Dave.
Jethro.
In here.
Sorry I'm late.
Former Petty Officer Turpin's medical records arrived from the Veterans Administration just as I was leaving.
Want something to drink? No, not yet, thanks.
Records indicate any history of heart disease? No.
But Turpin hadn't been seen by a VA doctor in years.
Any hint at why he was homeless? Well, he was treated for alcoholism two years after his discharge.
One could assume it was an ongoing problem.
The VA's got a lot of programs for vets, Duck.
Wonder why Turpin was living on the streets.
I recently read a HUD report.
It estimates, on any given night, between 50,000 and 60,000 men and women who have served are sleeping on the streets or in shelters.
What happens to the body of a homeless vet when they die? It's transferred to the morgue.
It's held there for 30 days while they search for next of kin.
If none are found, then the remains are cremated.
The ashes are then sent back to the VA for burial.
Do they perform an autopsy? None is required if the patient is under a doctor's care at the time of death.
Autopsies are rarely performed on the homeless.
Just out of curiosity: Why are you asking this? Someone wanted NCIS to believe that Staff Sergeant Roe had committed suicide.
He didn't; he was murdered.
Roe was doing a story on a homeless vet who supposedly died of a heart attack.
I think maybe he didn't.
Interesting.
Duck.
Get hold of Petty Officer Turpin's body and do what you do.
Morning, Abbs.
Morning.
Who's Emma Carter? She's a homeless girl.
She's looking after Dave, the dog.
I pulled her prints off that mirror over there.
Hmm.
How's she figure into the case? Well, I don't think she does.
She was just a good friend to Blue.
I mean, obviously, he trusted her with Dave.
Really? I don't remember her from any of Sergeant Roe's pictures.
Oh, well, there's a reason for that.
She didn't want to be found.
She's a runaway.
Yeah, and didn't want her picture or whereabouts advertised.
From Nebraska, huh? I looked her up on the Internet.
She's been missing for six years.
Her parents worked with the police and the FBI.
Had her picture everywhere: T-shirts, posters, milk cartons.
They even hired a private investigator.
But they never found her.
So what are you gonna do? Call her parents? The FBI? I don't know what I'm gonna do.
Doctor, did Blue die of a heart attack? As advertised.
Myocardial infarction.
His coronary arteries have 95% blockage.
Living on the street, poor nutrition, compromised liver.
It doesn't help.
I found epinephrine in his system.
That would have been administered by the attending physician in a clinic when they tried to revive him.
Also, bruising on the sternum and slight damage to the rib cage, which would be consistent with CPR.
So there was an attempt to save his life.
Yeah.
Wait, wait, wait.
You call all excited.
Now you're dancing around something, Duck.
What? What are we looking at, Doctor? Both of Blue's kidneys are missing.
Yet there's no mention of it in his medical records or the death certificate.
Meaning what? Someone stole his vital organs.
It's against the law to financially benefit from the donation of a human organ in this country.
But, on the black market, it's big business.
A kidney can sell for as much as $120,000 here and, in Singapore, twice as much.
Ducky said organs have to be harvested minutes after death.
The attending physician, Dr.
Graham Novak, didn't indicate anything in the records about donated organs.
Bishop, what do you have on him? Uh, Dr.
Novak has a prominent practice in Reston.
He's on the board of directors at Washington General Hospital and several charities.
Married, two grown children, model citizen.
Not even a parking ticket.
What did I miss? You're with me.
Where we going? We are gonna pay the doctor a visit.
Come on.
Hi, Dave.
Hi.
I brought you some dog food.
Look.
Boy, hi, hi.
Where's Emma? Where's Emma, huh? How do you know my name? Why'd you tell me you didn't have a family? I don't.
You do.
Your parents are alive, and they live in Nebraska.
Who are you? What do you think you're doing? I'm just trying to help.
You don't have to live like this.
You don't know anything about me.
I know you ran away from home when you were 16 years old.
Why? Because they didn't want me there.
You'd be surprised how many But you're older now.
And so are they.
Maybe time has changed things.
Not enough.
What are you doing? This is from last summer.
Emma, I hope this somehow gets to you.
Your father and I miss you and love you.
We know we made mistakes, and we're sorry.
Our lives stopped when you left.
Please, come home.
Here.
It's a prepaid phone card.
Just think about calling 'em.
There's nothing to say.
Dr.
Novak? Yes.
NCIS.
We'd like to have a word with you.
Certainly.
What's this about? A couple of missing kidneys.
Why would a respected doctor like you get involved in the sale of black-market organs? It started as a one-time thing.
You thought stealing an organ once was okay? No.
I was helping an older friend.
A mentor of mine.
He was way down on the organ donor list and wouldn't have lived long enough to receive a kidney through proper channels.
So you stole one for him? I didn't see it that way.
Late one night, I was volunteering at the clinic.
An indigent died.
He had no family.
Nobody.
He was going to be shipped to the morgue where he'd be cremated.
It was meant to be: he was the right blood type, tissue antigens matched.
His kidney saved my friend's life.
That's when you realized you could make it a business? No.
I never intended to do it again.
But you did.
I was blackmailed into it.
By who? Lorin Davis, the director of the clinic.
Was he brokering organs? I never asked, I never wanted to know.
But you kept doing it.
I started to rationalize.
Even if other people were making money, lives were being saved.
Every year, thousands of people die on organ transplant waiting lists.
Did Staff Sergeant Roe become suspicious? When he came into the examination room to pay his last respects, he noticed the body was still on a ventilator even after brain activity ceased.
So you were keeping the kidneys viable? I was concerned, but Lorin told me not to worry.
He said he'd take care of the problem.
Did you know Sergeant Roe was murdered? No.
Everybody stay seated.
Federal agents.
Will you excuse me a second? What's going on? We have a warrant for the seizure of clinic records.
Lorin Davis, you're under arrest for the murder of Staff Sergeant Martin Roe.
And when we're through with you, the FBI wants to talk about the theft and sale of human organs.
Hey.
Hey.
Hi.
I was hoping you would come back.
Hi.
Really? Mm-hmm.
I'm sorry.
I-I forgot your name.
Abby.
Yeah, Abby, um, can I ask you a favor? Yeah.
Will you watch Dave for a while? Sure.
Wh-Why? My parents got me a bus ticket to Nebraska.
You called them.
Mm-hmm.
That is that's just so great.
Yeah.
I hope so.
What changed? Thinking about that video you showed me and what Blue would've said if he saw it.
I never thought I'd be out here this long.
But I guess, after a while, I believed I got what I deserved.
No.
You're better than that, Emma.
That's what my mom said, too.
"There but by the grace of God.
" Yeah.
Served his country honorably.
How'd he end up like that, Leon? Shame is it happens too often.
I just heard the court-martial for Lieutenant Waters is gonna resume.
They're gonna try the case without the testimony of Staff Sergeant Roe.
It's back in the hands of the legal system.
What happens, happens.
I'm glad I caught you.
Petty Officer Turpin's remains are on their way to Arlington.
"Blue" is going to be buried with full military honors next to Staff Sergeant Roe in a joint ceremony.
Thank you for arranging that, Dr.
Mallard.
Oh, it's an honor they both deserve.
Yep.
Let's go home.
