Power (2014) s05e04 Episode Script

Second Chances

1 GHOST: Previously on Power ANGELA: It wasn't a Jimenez hitter.
It was Diego himself.
This Alicia is Diego's sister? We have the biggest cartel in North America in New York City right now.
So what's your first win gonna be, boss? I got a lead on the Jimenez cartel.
You've never compromised yourself for an innocent client before? You didn't follow the rules.
We'll get you a decision soon.
You owe me $2 million.
We gonna get you that LA port.
You gonna kill the Jimenez? I met Tommy connect, the Serbian motherfucker.
I'm gonna get in good with him and I'm gonna take over Tommy organization.
What the fuck happened to him? I took care of the guy that did this to your family.
VINCENT: That true, Sammy? He made it right.
- I saw Ray Ray shoot Raina.
- What? I watched her die.
I miss her so much.
This woman, she made a connection between Ray Ray and Raina? What did you say to her? As local NYPD, she needed to leave it alone.
TASHA: Do you think she will? ANGELA: No, but I can stop it.
We'd like your assistance in gathering all the files associated with the Raymond Jones murder.
We're here to give you a chance to see Connie before she's gone.
We're very interested in Thomas Patrick Egan.
He thinks that I wanna get close to the son I never knew.
I need clean money to help me finance the QCP, and you need clean money to pay Jason back.
So I think we should go back to our old arrangement that worked so well at Truth.
So, like old times.
JOE: They say this is a big, rich town I just come from the poorest part Bright lights, city life I gotta make it, this is where it goes down I just happen to come up hard Legal or illegal, baby, I gotta make it 50 CENT: I never took a straight path nowhere Life's full of twists and turns, bumps and bruises I live, I learn I'm from that city full of yellow cabs and skyscrapers It's hard to get a start in these parts without paper Homey, I grew up in hell, a block away from heaven That corner every 15 minutes, they moving seven Pure snow, bag it, then watch it go Occupational options, get some blow or some hos Shoot the ball or the strap, learn to rap or to jack Fuck it, man, in the meantime Go head and pump a pack This my regal, royal flow, my James Bond bounce That 007, that's 62 on my count I'm an undercover liar, I lie under the covers Look a bitch in the eyes and tell her, baby, I love ya You're my inspiration, you're my motivation You're the reason that I'm moving with no hesitation JOE: They say this is a big, rich town Yeah, I just come from the poorest part Bright lights, city life I gotta make it, this is where it goes down Legal or illegal, baby, I gotta make it [DISTANT ENGINE RUNNING] [TIRES SQUEALING] [DISTANT TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWING] You know you're late, Tommy.
Yo, I know I'm late.
But we best figure out a way to clip those Jimenez motherfuckers or pretty soon we all gonna be late.
Jason ain't gonna wait forever.
What about your dad? He out.
Now maybe he can help us.
Teresi's out? Yeah, ain't no big deal.
You standing here telling me it ain't no big deal? I know what you're thinking.
I talked to Proctor.
He said it's a hundred.
How long has Proctor known about this? A couple days, maybe.
But let's deal with the real problem here.
The Jimenez, not Tony.
K, you mind if I have a minute to rap with Tommy alone? What about all that, "We working together," bullshit? Come on, K, you know it ain't bullshit.
We're working together.
Just a minute.
[CLICKS TONGUE] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] What does Teresi know? - He don't know nothing.
- He don't know nothing? You ain't tell him shit about the business? - No way.
- Tommy, nothing about our business? - No.
- You swear to me, Tommy? - I swear.
- Well, please keep it that way.
All right? I agreed to clean your money again, and we gotta kill the leaders of a fucking cartel.
We can't tell anything to Teresi that he could use against us.
Ghost, I ain't gonna tell him shit.
But he wouldn't do that to us anyway.
He's family.
This motherfucker blackmailed me twice.
You got the amnesia? You got a short memory? GHOST: I know what he's capable of doing to us.
Besides, he's been your fucking family for 15 minutes.
I been your family your whole goddamn life.
The situation is under control.
Right, well let me know when the Jimenez situation is under control.
Can you do that for me? Cool.
[CELL PHONE BUZZING] Hold on, Tommy.
I gotta take this.
A'ight, fine.
Rashad.
Fine.
Yeah, we'll be at the fundraiser tonight.
I'll see you later.
I'll find the Jimenez my goddamn self.
We'll make sure we reach our goal.
Everything'll be taken care of.
[ENGINE STARTS] [TIRES SQUEAL] This is all of the Detective Jones case files from NYPD and Internal Affairs.
Great.
For your dirty cop investigation, right? Yeah.
Where you at with that? It's ongoing.
Yeah, well, that Sergeant Blanca Rodriguez [CHUCKLES] I think it's safe to say you're off her Christmas card list.
She seems to think you're hiding something.
I am.
From her.
A federal investigation.
[BOTH LAUGHING] I'll never have to deal with her again.
I'll see you in the briefing.
All right.
Thanks, Jerry.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] - [PHONE CLICKING] - [CELL PHONE CHIMES] [CELL PHONE VIBRATES] All right, everyone, listen up.
I shall make this quick.
We now know Alicia is the other half to the so-called Jimenez "brothers.
" We have warrant applications in for her and Diego's arrests on multiple charges.
We don't even know if they're still here.
And how are we gonna find them? I don't know.
Maybe we try looking? No, I spoke to my Mexican contacts.
There's no record of Alicia or Diego crossing back over the border.
Even if that's true and they're still stateside, it doesn't mean they're still in the city.
Right, but there is someone in New York who can give us their whereabouts.
Their distro, who we suspect is Arturo Magdeleno.
If we can get to him, we can get to the Jimenez.
And if we can take down a cartel of that size, well, everyone in this room will be able to write their own ticket.
Let's get to it.
So now you wanna talk.
Hey, come on, K.
It was about Teresi and the Italians.
You know how Tommy is.
Once somebody gets in his head, he can't think straight.
Tommy said he was worried Teresi might be a snitch.
Well, he told me he's got that under control.
Tommy got a daddy now.
Shit better than having a new puppy.
[LAUGHS] We should drop that motherfucker.
We drop Teresi and Tommy find out? No, man.
It's way too risky.
So if we ain't gonna drop Teresi, then what we gonna do? Well, I figure Tommy won't turn on the Italians.
Especially not with Teresi in his ear, right? So we gotta make them shut the door on him.
How we gonna do that? I got a plan, K.
It'll make Tommy too dangerous for the mob, but nobody can get hurt.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] Especially not Tommy.
Yeah? Bet.
Before my ma, my old man was engaged to some other woman.
Oh, yeah? Mm-hmm.
What happened to her? Just before they were about to get married he had some kind of attack, and, uh He had to be in a wheelchair the whole rest of his life.
And he told her, he said, "If you wanna go, you can go.
" And she did.
- Oof.
- [LAUGHS] And my ma was his nurse.
She took care of him and she stayed with him every single day for the rest of his life.
TOMMY: He died young.
He did everything he could to take care of Ma and me.
And then he died.
I joined the family to make sure that she had the life that he would have given her.
First real money I earned went for those stones.
Those two stones.
You're a good man.
And then I bought all of this, including the Teresi family stone.
As good as anything else in here.
Connie ought to get a fucking pyramid.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] That's us over there.
I'm gonna make sure she's taken care of until the end, no matter what.
We both will.
Hey, Quinn, so I'm going over the event budget from the launch party.
But you'll be happy with this, all right? So don't worry about anything Uh, let me Let me call you back.
Alicia, I didn't I didn't know you wanted to talk in person.
Good.
Then no listening ears could have known, either.
This is beautiful.
Thanks for coming out.
I wanted to update you on the international business.
Mmm.
And there seems to be a setback.
Well, I prefer my people coming to me with solutions.
Not setbacks.
[LIGHTER CLICKS] I just wanna make sure you and Diego are on the same page on how the resources are managed in the club.
[EXHALES] How much of a tab has he run up? The truth.
About $60,000.
DRE: And pretty soon, no creative accounting's gonna make any of the books balance.
Some of the bottle girls have quit because of his aggressiveness.
Quinn who's one of Karen Bassett's managers She started to notice too.
Well, it appears we need to find a solution.
You'll get instructions soon.
Oh, shit.
GHOST: Tasha.
Tasha.
- Tasha! - Mmm.
Hmm? GHOST: Come on, you're asleep.
You and Yas are supposed to be ready.
We got the investor party at Truth, remember? Oh, shit.
And what are these, Tasha? Dr.
Wolven gave me something so I can try and get some sleep.
Look, I don't think I can go.
What do you mean, you don't think you can go? You gotta go, Tasha.
Come on, I need this night to be a success, now.
I'm sorry, all right? I just can't play the perfect wife tonight.
TASHA: I can't be like you and act like I'm back to business.
I don't have time for this.
Okay, fine.
You and Yas stay here.
I'll go raise the funds for our daughter's legacy.
- Don't do that to me.
- Don't do what to you? Don't you dare act like the reason I don't wanna go is because I don't care.
No, it's because you're selfish! Sorry for disturbing you.
Enjoy your sleep.
[LAUGHS] Look what you fucking guys did to this place.
Oh, anything would look good to you, old man.
You've been staring at cinder blocks for 25 years.
ALL: [CHUCKLING] Is Connie coming? No.
No, no, she's She's too sick to get around anymore.
That's too bad.
You know, I've been meaning to visit.
Mmm.
That's all right.
No, it ain't, Tony.
[DOOR OPENS] SAMMY: Oh! Look who's back from the goddamn dead.
- Sammy! - Oh, my God.
TERESI: [LAUGHS] For any of you who don't know, this is the legendary Tony fucking Teresi.
[MURMURING] You show him some goddamn respect.
Now, let's eat! Drink! Come on, mangiamo.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER] TERESI: Actually, before we eat, I'd like to say something to everybody.
Uh When you get a life sentence It's like nothing you can imagine.
It's, uh I never thought I was gonna get out.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] Despite every piece of paper the feds put in front of me, I I knew what I was in for.
And I, uh And I took it like the man that I am.
Like the men that we all are.
I didn't think, uh I didn't think I was gonna get another go around.
So, I guess I guess I just wanna say it meant a lot that the family stood by me and Connie.
And not just me and Connie, but my boy.
Who is finally where he belongs.
[CHUCKLES] We are all family.
TERESI: And with that [SPEAKING SICILIAN] [SPEAKING SICILIAN] ALL: [SPEAKING SICILIAN] You don't find him getting out overnight like that a little strange? The only people I know who get out That's the demon of Bell Boulevard.
He's done 25 years for this family without once opening his mouth.
Now, you're young.
But you better show him the respect and tribute he's owed.
Besides, most the guys he can snitch on are dead.
Yeah? [SWING MUSIC PLAYS] - Oh, I miss everything.
- Hey.
- Everything looking good? - We got it, man.
Yeah, I don't want a single empty glass.
Okay? Not a single one.
We got it.
We went over it.
We're going over it again.
[POUNDS TABLE] Pardon me.
- You serious, man? - James, James.
Hey, hey, Rashad, hey.
- Where's Tasha? - Uh, she Tasha couldn't make it.
Oh.
- Problem? - No, it's it's all right.
Um, I'll give her speech.
No, no, no, I plan to give the speech.
You sure you're up to it? Maybe you should stick to the club thing, you know? If tonight turns out well, we should be able to make up the investment we lost from Linda.
I'll take care of the presentation.
The cause speaks for itself.
To what cause are you referring, hmm? Raina, of course.
And all the other children out there just like her.
[CLEARS THROAT] Pardon me a moment, James.
I need to get to work.
TATE: My, my, my, my.
They say that generosity makes people more attractive.
That's clearly the reason Vivian Moorhead is the most radiant woman in town.
That and Dr.
Zizmor.
Rupert.
There are rumors amongst some of the board members that St.
Patrick is already causing problems.
I hear a major investor has already dropped out.
They're just that rumors.
I can promise you both, I trust him with my life.
Listen, this QCP project is also important to the great state of New York.
Uh, excuse me, may I have your attention? GHOST: Uh, ladies and gentlemen, I know you guys are enjoying the music, the drinks.
I think it's suffice to say the best of New York City is in the house tonight.
And thank you for being here to support such a worthwhile project.
Our children, our future.
Despite what many of you may think you know about me or about my family [CLEARS THROAT] I can assure you that my my heart [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [CLEARS THROAT] GHOST: My heart is My heart [INDISTINCT MURMURING] [SPARSE PIANO MUSIC] [PHONE RINGS] Hello, it's James.
DAN: Morning, it's Dan Account manager of the Queens Child Project fund.
Wanted to touch base with you in regards to the fundraiser last night.
We got the total in.
Now, it's not quite as high as How much are we short by? DAN: About 40%.
[SIGHS] DAN: Now I just brought Councilman Tate up to speed.
We may have to delay the groundbreaking No, no, no.
Um, I have some private money coming in, so let me just call you back.
[PHONE BEEPS] [GRUNTS] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] How'd it go last night? I saw her.
Raina.
GHOST: I thought she was there.
I see her every day.
I You know, I came down into the crowd.
Our baby girl is really gone.
So, I, uh, couldn't finish the speech.
I had to leave.
It's just a speech, Ghost.
It's okay.
It was supposed to be your speech.
Not my speech.
If you had been there, Tasha, to give your speech, then it would have never happened.
Again, thank you for coming in on such short notice.
I know you're a very busy man.
Have a seat.
Let me get this straight.
You want me to be the face of the Queens Child Project? I mean no disrespect, philanthropy's lit and all, but I got a business to run.
And I'd have a hard time believing that James is just gonna step aside and let me take over.
We've had some recent disagreements, you know? [CHUCKLES] Well, we both know that James can be stubborn when he sets his mind to something.
And I'm afraid he's just too unstable right now.
And it's not an issue of taking over.
You'd merely be the face of our organization.
Corner kid off the block with your redemption story, shit.
People would be tripping over themselves to write us a check.
And if our dear brother James truly cares about making this memorial to his daughter a reality, he'll understand it needs to be done.
I mean, I'm sure your underserved district could use some funding.
But what's in it for me, Tate? [CHUCKLES] Don't you want friends in high places? I got enough friends, thank you.
Mr.
Coleman.
Never underestimate the value of a good public image.
[SCOFFS] [DOOR CLOSES] All he cares about is building this Queens Child Project for Raina, like that's gonna fix everything.
To him it will, Tasha.
He's helpless.
Just like me.
Just like you.
He's nothing like me.
You know, it hasn't worked since Since Angela.
But then we figured out a way to be partners, if nothing else.
Mama, I stood by him when he was arrested.
I stood by him when he got out.
But Mama, now that Raina's gone, I think I need to stand by myself.
Death of a child hits everybody hard, Tasha.
James is not himself.
This isn't the man that I met.
The man I knew.
I used to think we could outrun anything.
That the life would never catch up to us.
But now I know I was wrong.
I just wish I could start over.
Oh, baby.
You can't never go back and start over.
I wanna try.
You sure there's not something else? [DRAMATIC MUSIC] Someone else? Who was that man that you were hugged up on at Raina's funeral? No.
This is about Ghost.
No one else.
I am not one to brag, but these are the best pancakes in New York City.
[ELEVATOR DOOR DINGS] Not too much syrup.
Whoa, oh, it walks by day as if almost human.
Its powers have grown strong.
Cute.
Yeah, I see you're still on the list downstairs.
Hey, honey.
Mom? LINDSAY: You look beautiful.
Okay, w-what brings you by? Calm down, Joey.
I'm not here to start anything.
Mm-hmm.
Actually, I came over because I want to make amends for all the hurt I've caused you.
Caused you both.
Mommy's very sorry she was sick in the past, but she's all better now.
No, I mean it.
I'm clean.
- 30 days.
- Oh.
I'm gonna start studying for the bar exam again.
This is for you, baby.
ELISA: I'll put it with the other ones.
That's a promise, honey.
It won't be like it was before.
And soon you'll be living with me again too.
I'll get joint custody back.
Won't that be fun? Okay, Elisa Marie, why don't you go upstairs? Ah, ah, give me that.
ELISA MARIE: Bye, Mom.
Listen to me.
I will never let you have joint custody.
And as as heroic as 30 days sober is, you can't barge in here and say things like that to her.
You still have a long way to go.
I'm sorry, aren't you the one who's about to get disbarred on ethics? What? Did another witness not show up to the bar hearing? It's never gonna happen, okay? And don't worry about me.
I'm never gonna let anything or anybody threaten my career again or keep me from being that girl's father.
You always find someone to clean it up for you, don't you? I'll tell her you said good-bye.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] [ELEVATOR DOOR DINGS] [SIGHS] [SIGHS] [CELL PHONE BEEPS] Yeah, Jason, I'm gonna get that thing done soon.
Yeah.
I just need a little time to Hello? You there? Hello? Hello? Ya fucking prick.
What's wrong? You need some help? No, I just got this thing I gotta do.
Another party I gotta throw.
You want me and the guys to help out? Do it right this time? C'mon, who's the party for? [DRAMATIC MUSIC] Nah, I got this.
- I'm all good.
- Yeah? Thanks, though.
[TAPS ON HOOD] [ENGINE STARTS] Two weeks in juvie, huh? What a gangster you are.
ANGELA: Hey, show him some respect.
You don't know who this is? This is Arturo Magdeleno, the new head of the Toros Locos.
Oh, that's right.
[GASPS] Congratulations, man.
I heard how you been telling everybody how you gunned down Lorenzo for the spot, huh? At least, that's what our witnesses say.
And since you did this in furtherance of drug trafficking, we can charge you under the kingpin statute.
Death penalty.
That's why the locals brought you here.
I want a lawyer.
I I actually didn't do that shit.
Well, that's good news.
But But then that means you've been lying.
So that's kinda even worse.
We don't care about Lorenzo.
But I'll do my best to try and keep your little secret.
Make sure that word about that doesn't get out on the streets.
We know you're the New York distro for the Jimenez.
Tell us where we can find Diego and Alicia.
Only way out.
[DRUMMING ON TABLE] Whoa, time's up.
You're gonna get that prison cred after all.
I'm not the distro! - Wait, what'd you say? - I know where Alicia's headed.
Home.
She's leaving the city today.
Diego will probably be there too.
Leaving how? [DRAMATIC MUSIC] - Hey.
- Hey.
So who's so important? Thanks.
[SIGHS] Did you know Tony Teresi was out? No, when'd you find this out? - Just today.
- Bullshit, Proctor.
Tommy told me you already looked into it.
Come on, man.
Why am I just hearing from you now? Tommy told me not to say anything.
Joe, Tommy don't run shit.
Oh, that's easy for you to say.
He stabbed a fucking Homeland Security agent to death in the middle of my kitchen.
So forgive me if I wanna play it a little safe around the guy.
Okay, so what scares you more than Tommy enough to call me? Look, Teresi getting out appears to check out, but [SIGHS] there's new paperwork that popped up with a name on it that concerns me.
John Mak.
- That motherfucker again? - Yes.
So, look, Mak was a part of Teresi's original case.
So he could be involved now purely as procedure.
I don't know.
And until we are sure, I think it's best if you and Tommy don't expose yourself by letting Teresi know anything that might interest the feds.
Look, he may be legit.
I don't know.
He blackmailed you.
[QUIETLY] And he murdered Sandoval for us.
He already knows too much.
Will you cut the fucking "we" shit? Look, man, the person you're worried about being exposed is you, you know that.
So you don't want anything to happen that could make you guilty by association with me and Tommy.
No, no, that's bullshit, James.
When have I not shown up for you, huh? When you got shot, who did you call? Me.
See, we are a team right now, whether you like it or not.
We can't slip up.
Not with Teresi or anyone.
Look, I'm gonna monitor this thing the best I can.
But you have to play it safe.
You cannot be in anything illegal.
Especially with fucking Tommy.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] [SIGHS] Okay, she's down.
Are you sure everything's okay? You know, you don't have to stay here.
You two can come to my place.
Don't say that.
Why? Because I'm afraid you might change your mind.
This is the right decision, Tasha.
I mean, you're not exactly objective, Terry.
You don't understand.
It's best that you're out of that apartment.
I was called in to testify at Joe Proctor's preliminary ethics hearing.
It's not looking good for him.
From what I know about John Mak, he is not going to stop until he gets James and Proctor on something.
And when he does, you and the kids should be as far away from them as possible.
Proctor too? We're all in danger.
You're not in any danger.
Not anymore.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] She said you should come to this meeting? Yeah, she told me to pick you up and bring you here.
DRE: What's this? $60,000 to cover his recreation in the nightclubs.
[SPEAKING SPANISH] I'm sorry.
So from now on, the clubs are Dre's domain.
His crew, his procedures.
But I want the club in Paris locked down.
- Done.
- We have a certain system too.
And I want you to show Cristobal how to operate the books in the clubs so he can run things here when we expand.
No, I don't think that's necessary.
It is necessary.
There's no sense having a lieutenant if you're not gonna use him.
Think.
Let's go.
[CAR ENGINE STARTS] What the fuck was that? Are you running the clubs now? I got a fucking choice? You want me to say no? [SPEAKING SPANISH] [CAR ENGINE STARTS] [SPEAKING SPANISH] Wait, wait, wait, wait, hold on.
Slow down.
Oh, shit.
[SIRENS BLARING] [ALL SHOUTING COMMANDS] On the ground! DONOVAN: Diego and Alicia Jimenez, you are under arrest for murder, drug trafficking, racketeering, and conspiracy.
Let's go.
[SPEAKING SPANISH] [APPLAUSE] Well done, well done.
Alicia and Diego are already in separate interrogation rooms.
Angela, you get first crack at them.
You know, I have to admit, for as long as I've been working on this case, you know, I wanted to be the one to bring them in.
But you got them.
- We all got them.
- Well, mostly me.
- [LAUGHS] - That goes without saying.
I'll start with Alicia first.
[ELEVATOR DOOR DINGS] AUSA Valdes.
Steve, what are you doing here? Steven Tampio, DEA.
Can't allow you or any other member of this office to interview Alicia or Diego Jimenez.
- What? - I'm gonna go speak to Alicia now.
I'm going with you.
No, you're not.
Make sure I'm not being monitored.
Medina, what the hell is this? I got no fucking idea.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] Get your hands of me.
My name's Steven Tampio.
I'm with the U.
S.
Government.
You're here to release me and to cover it up? [CHUCKLES] Yeah, and why would you think that? Well, after we absorbed most of Felipe Lobos' territory near the Mexican border, we now control the region.
No gang wars, no coyotes smuggling people across the border, everything happening on our watch.
Mmm.
We are What do your Yankee legitimate business cartels call it here in America? Too big to fail.
Yep.
That's it.
Hmm.
I'd love nothing more than to take you and Diego down.
But right now the orders from my superiors are to let the two of you go.
You'll need a win from time to time to make yourself look good.
You have all the evidence you need.
You planted that gold gun at that stash house in Suffolk County.
- You tried to set him up.
- If you're tracking us, you already know my brother is a risk to us both.
Keep Diego.
I can't arrest him.
He's the face of your cartel.
You want your brother gone, you do it yourself.
[DOOR CLOSES] You have no authority to do this.
I assure you I do.
As what, Director of Public Enrichment for the DEA? A bit more than just DEA.
This matter goes far above your pay grades.
How far above? The company? CIA? I can't disclose that.
It's a setback, I know, but Setback? Just focus on your other cases.
I'm sorry.
Wait.
DIEGO: Adiós.
This was gonna be the biggest case of my career.
You got them linked to a murder and a tangential connection to a stash house.
It's a good start.
If anyone's gonna take them on, my bosses want the case to be iron clad.
You can't go off half-cocked.
Half-cocked my ass.
I can win this case.
I've got the evidence.
What is this, really? What, are the Jimenez paying you off? Someone else? Did you use me? Was any of it real? Angela, I haven't been able to stop thinking about you since the other night.
I'm sorry you got hurt, but I have to do my job.
I didn't need to sleep with you to find out where you were in this case.
If I have the authority to do what I just did back there, do you really think I needed to use you to do it? ANGELA: Mm-hmm.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] All right, sit tight.
Don't make a move until you hear from me, all right? All right, cool.
[CELL PHONE BEEPS] So I just talked to the primeras.
We're gonna close down the store until the shit cools down.
The connections got wrapped up.
Ain't nothing to cool down, man.
We burnt.
No, see, the Feds ain't make a move on shit yet.
A'ight? Not the drop spot, not the stash house, nothing.
They got the big fish.
They don't care about us.
And if they needed us to get Alicia and Diego, they would have had us already.
Think about it, man.
Now we got a rat.
Maybe, man.
Shit, man, if Tommy or Kanan or fucking Ghost find out the Jimenez got brought in, they really gonna roll up on us.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] No, they won't.
I need you to drop me off somewhere.
[ELEVATOR DOOR DINGS] Keep going.
I'll get it, okay? I want you to go up to your room, close the door, right now.
Joseph Proctor.
You were a lawyer.
You know what this is.
Hey, come on.
Are you serious? - This has gotta be a fucking misunderstanding.
- Daddy.
Swear jar.
Homeland Security agent Bailey Markham's been officially declared a missing person.
This apartment was his last traceable location.
So we'll be the judge of whether it's a fucking misunderstanding.
Swear jar.
You have to have probable cause to search the premises, and you have to tell me what you're looking for.
Evidence of a crime.
Who told you to get this warrant, huh? Was it John Mak? Daddy? What are they looking for? I don't know, honey.
I don't know.
I understand you're on suspension.
What happened? Look, I already told my supervisor I don't know what the hell happened.
I didn't do anything wrong.
You know what? I don't wanna say anything else.
Is your suspension about a misuse of your log-in? But as you say, you don't know what could have happened.
I have a theory.
Who else knows your password, Darryl? [ELEVATOR DOOR DINGS] What's this? Estelle, what's going on? Yas, come here.
James, please.
Don't make this any harder.
Have you been drinking? Hey, where do you think you're going? I can't keep doing this.
- What are you talking about? - This! I can't keep trying to face what happened to our baby girl by myself.
Oh, come on.
Don't give me that, Tasha.
- I'm facing it.
- No, you're not.
You think just because you build some tower with Raina's name on it that you've been grieving her? Oh, 'cause then you won't have to deal with any real pain, right? O-Okay, I'm fucking sorry that I can't deal with the loss of my daughter the way you want me to.
That's just it, Ghost.
You're not dealing with it at all! You're shutting everybody out.
Worst of all, her.
I'm telling you right now, if you don't deal with the pain of Raina's death, you'll never see the beauty of her life.
She'll always be this thing This thing that was taken from you, instead of the gift that you had.
The gift that we had.
Cool, so you're just gonna run out on me? Run out on you? I'm not leaving you, Ghost.
You left me.
A long time ago.
You remember that? You left all of us.
Tasha, that was in the past.
The past? Yeah, well, I told Tariq everything about our past, how we came up in the old neighborhood, all of it.
He knows it all, Ghost.
- Tasha, hey, listen - I want out.
Out of this penthouse.
Out of this marriage.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] I need some space.
You don't mean what you're saying, Tasha.
Hmm.
Fine, you wanna leave me? I don't need you.
You can't help me.
Can't help the QCP.
Can't help our kids.
Oh, I got our kids.
And I got myself.
All you got is what you always had.
You.
- [RAP MUSIC PLAYS] - Long as she know I ain't gonna sweat it We gonna do this shit tonight, right? - Yeah.
- You just want us to dump them? The motherfucker you want got? It don't matter.
Y'all gonna be shooting these.
What the fuck are we supposed to do with those? What if they start blasting back and we only got blanks? It's a drive-by, man.
If y'all do this shit right, y'all will be long gone before they know what hit them.
Just scare them a little bit.
It's what we need to do to get to the connect.
Trust that.
You got it? Or do I need to find two other niggas that wanna get rich? We got you.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] Still haven't heard from the raid on Proctor's.
Oh, it's okay.
I'm about to witness his next crime.
Whatever happens, you fought like a warrior poet.
You find anything? Huh? I know it was you.
You raid my place while my fucking daughter is there? Really? I was just doing my job.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
I helped.
You're wasting your time.
I'm clean.
So you have no idea what happened to Bailey Markham? No, I don't.
Well, I hope the results from our search bear that out, Proctor.
'Cause if you're lying, I'll bring the full force of the Attorney General to your door.
There's not gonna be any fucking results.
And if you keep messing with me, I'm gonna file harassment charges.
We clear? Wow.
[CHUCKLES] We're not backing off of him, right? No, we'll get him to talk.
He can help us take down Egan, St.
Patrick.
Valdes.
Yeah, all of them.
No, we're just getting started.
James.
Thank you for coming in on such short notice.
Absolutely, Councilman.
Mmm, well, the board is ready to see you now.
- Great.
- Right this way.
James, we brought you in to share the good news.
We've asked Andre to be an additional face to our fundraising efforts for the QCP, and he's accepted.
[LAUGHS] Wow, um, I just wanna thank you all for this incredible opportunity and to especially thank you, Mr.
James St.
Patrick, for everything you've done for me.
If it wasn't for you, James, I wouldn't be standing here today.
You supported me, even when we had to sever our professional relationship.
You see, most bosses would have had hard feelings toward their protégé for going to work with a competitor, but but not you, James.
I know it must have been difficult, but I'm so glad our relationship can continue to grow through the Queens Child Project.
So let's stay linked together through this board and through our joint public endeavors.
To help the kids of Queens.
[LAUGHS] [APPLAUSE] TATE: Let's get a picture of you two together.
GHOST: Andre.
What a surprise.
Great to see you, too, James.
And it's a real honor to have you join this illustrious board.
And thank you, Councilman Tate, for bringing us together.
Trust me, I won't forget it.
[APPLAUSE] [LAUGHS] That's a good eye.
- Oh, my God.
- See you later.
Man, hold up, man.
Fuck this blanks shit.
We ain't going in there like some bitch ass motherfuckers with pop guns.
I won't hit nobody.
Man, if you don't take this shit, nigga [CELL PHONE CHIMES] Yo, we up.
I tried that shit, in fact.
Bug protein? You know what I'm saying? All right, all right.

They're dead now! [TIRES SQUEALING] What the Yo, Vincent, don't shoot.
Hey, don't fucking move.
No, that's my man Kanan.
He was meeting me here.
I got you.
Well, good thing you showed up.
What the fuck was this? Who would shoot at us here, huh? I don't fucking know.
But we might not be the only ones who got hit tonight.
I'm gonna go check on Teresi, make sure that he's all right.
Fuck out of here.
Come on, you better follow us.
Guys out of nowhere, huh? Yeah, shit crazy.
So you didn't recognize any of them? Or not that you all know each other.
Who they're with, I mean.
I ain't no snitch, man.
That's all right.
You can tell me.
It won't come back to you.
Look, if it's about Tommy's old drug beef, I can make sure the right people pay, but I have to know.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] It was the dope boys trying to even the score.
That was for Tommy.
So that's not done? Really? He and Sammy swore to me that shit was over.
That's a shame.
[CELL PHONE RINGS] What? Hey there, pal.
What do you know? Nothin'.
It hasn't been that long.
Well, I hope you didn't forget about our little arrangement.
You do know how to contact me, right? MAK: I don't wanna have to show up at your door.
TERESI: I'm working on it.
Talk soon.
So, like I was saying before Tony Who were you talking to on the phone? Oh, that was a-an egg roll delivery joint.
It was a wrong number.
What why why did they really let you out? I mean, until now, it was not even a possibility.
Then all of a sudden, out of nowhere Come on, you're not happy that I'm out? Yeah, but I wanna know what's going on.
Even after all these years you've been inside, I can tell I can tell when something's going on with you.
[CELL PHONE RINGS] Don't even think about it.
We're having a conversation.
[RINGING CONTINUES] Sit down.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] They let me out to get information about Tommy.
Oh, no.
Oh, Tony.
Hey, come on, listen.
Listen, Connie, it it's all right.
Tommy rolls with this gangster named Ghost.
And the feds have a hard-on for him, but they've never been able to nail him.
They think 'cause I'm close to Tommy, you know, maybe I can get something for them.
So you're a rat? I am not a rat.
This is about Ghost and Tommy.
It is not the family.
I only did this so that I could be with you for, you know, whatever time you have I wanted to see you without looking through glass.
If any of those guys find out, it's not gonna matter who you're snitching on.
They won't.
They won't.
Trust me.
[KNOCKING ON DOOR] Shit.
[GROANS] [KNOCKING ON DOOR] TERESI: All right! [KNOCKING] [SIGHS] What? Why didn't you answer your phone? I didn't hear it.

- Don't worry about it.
What's going on? Some motherfuckers shot What? Some motherfuckers shot at us outside Bamonte's.
Now, nobody got hurt too bad, but But what? I don't think they was coming for the family.
Are you sure this wasn't about your business with Vincent? Nah, I don't think so.
How's that going? I got a lot on my mind.
Tommy, will you please let me help you? I-I'm out, son.
TERESI: I ain't gonna be around forever.
