Queen of the South (2016) s04e06 Episode Script

La Mujer en el Espejo

1 My Dad started to work in the cartel when he was 14.
Drop the magazine.
Empty the chamber.
- (GUN CLICKS) - Reload.
TERESA: Previously on "Queen of the South" I know he wouldn't want this for you.
I've been lucky every day since I've had it.
Thank you.
POTE: People in our line of work can't be with civilians.
It's too dangerous for you for him.
Are you sure we can trust Javier? (DRAMATIC MUSIC) We're selling to Dumas now.
Javier will be your contact.
You and I won't be meeting again.
It must've been Dumas who told the judge about us.
- Whoa, slow down.
- You broke our trust.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Where is Bobby? (GUN CLICKS) - (SHOUTS) - (BOTH GRUNTING) (GUNSHOT) Soon as she pops her head up, we hit her.
(GUN CLICKS) (BOTH GRUNT) (SHOUTING) Your Honor.
Word is, Mendoza's sending you a message.
LAFAYETTE: You get one hit an eye for an eye to put that girl in her place.
- (GRUNTS) - Get off of me! - Uhh - This is for Dumas.
After that, we go back to business as usual.
(SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC) (CLOCK TICKING) (DOOR THUDS CLOSED) Dumas went after her 'cause she was an easy target.
He'll try to kill anyone tied to us.
Sí.
I need to see Tony.
Where's Javier? Puta madre.
(AIRPLANE WHOOSHING) (BOTH SPEAKING SPANISH) (BANGING ON DOOR) (POUNDING CONTINUES) Where were you? - POTE: We're at war, - JAVIER: Hey And you disappear to screw some bitch? JAVIER: Hey, cabrón.
Watch your mouth, puto.
Or what, cabrón? Mm? What? POTE.
Give us a minute.
(WOMAN BREATHING HEAVILY) - Who is she? - Her name is Emilia.
You didn't answer my question.
(SIGHS SOFTLY) She's Boaz's ex-fiancée.
And she's with you now.
Sí.
He can't know she's here.
My cousin's been with a lot of women, pero Entiende? I'm sorry, patrona.
I'm sorry, Teresa.
I I didn't want to make this your problem.
This isn't our only problem.
Dumas killed Birdie.
This hijo de puta! I need you to do something.
(EXHALES) Whatever you need.
Do we need to put someone to protect her? No, no one else knows, and I want to keep it that way.
Let's go.
(DOOR CLICKS SHUT) (DOG BARKING DISTANTLY) Hey.
Oh, uh, Tony will be out in a jiffy.
Um, hey, I-I'm so sorry about what happened to your bartender.
[STAMMERS] Birdie, right? Thank you.
Teresa, I heard someone came after you.
It's okay.
I wanna talk to you.
Come outside.
Okay.
(SIGHS) Listen.
I know you've gone through a lot, but you can't just disappear without letting anyone know where you are, especially with a gun.
It's dangerous.
Look, I wanna pull my own weight.
You can use me.
- (ENGINE REVVS) - (KEYPAD BEEPS) DUMAS SOLDIER: Yo, it's going down.
Do it.
I promised your mother I'd keep you safe.
(MOTORCYCLE REVVING) My father was a soldier, and this is who I am.
(TIRES SCREECHING) (BANG) You have no idea what this life really is.
It is not for you.
You taught me to shoot a gun for a reason.
(GUN CLICKS) TONY: Now you need protecting.
What your father had to do, what everyone in this life is forced to do look at me (GUNFIRE) - (SHOUTS) - You can never come back from.
(GRUNTS) (GROANS) Whoever you thought you were that dies.
(GUN SHELL CLATTERS) You don't want this.
(TENSE MUSIC) - (SIREN WHOOPS) - (SIREN WHOOPING) (POLICE RADIO CHATTER) Gonna need you to step outside the vehicle, please.
Just you.
- (RADIO CHATTER) - I suggest the rest of you find your center of peace and not move.
Teresa? It's okay.
(TENSE MUSIC) Go.
(POLICE RADIO CHATTER) Beautiful morning, isn't it? Shame about that young girl.
I understand the rage you may be feeling, but you and Marcel have each lost one.
Scales are balanced now.
I need you to pin your anger to the post.
His men tried to kill me.
After Marcel's men turned up dead.
You drew first blood.
Had you given me an answer to our proposed partnership, my tone might be more amenable.
You don't care about the deaths, just about money.
And a good working relationship.
Marcel and I have peacefully coexisted for years.
There's been nothing but chaos since you arrived.
That chaos wasn't started by me.
Dumas is making this personal.
I'll speak to Marcel.
But you need to be the bigger man here cool those pretty heels till we figure this thing out.
Let me know you've heard me, and that you understand With words.
I heard you.
Good girl.
(LIGHTER CLINKS) (LIGHTER FLICKS) (CIGAR SIZZLES) (HEAVY MUSIC) Patrona.
It's done.
(GLASSES CLINK) They'll know who you are now.
(LIQUID POURING) Bien hecho.
Gracias.
POTE: (DISTANTLY) Where are we on surveillance? JAVIER: We have eyes on some targets.
We'll have more soon.
POTE: His club, his house, his people.
- We have a line on his family.
- No.
We're at war.
Not his family.
I'm gonna go fortify our defense.
Patrona, are you okay? I want you to take me somewhere.
(BACKGROUND NOISE, CHATTER) Welcome to the Casa De Santos.
Thank you for seeing me such a short notice, madrina.
This this is her.
Hm.
You seek a blessing of protection? Sí.
She's a leader looking out for her people.
(SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC) You are afraid she will fail.
The Orishas will guide us.
Let us begin.
(MAN SINGING IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE) (AFRO-LATIN TRIBAL SONG PLAYS) (SINGING IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE CONTINUES) (ORIATE CRUCITA EXHALES FORCEFULLY) (SINGING AND DRUMMING CONTINUES) (MOANING) (SINGING, DRUMMING FADES) Will this be enough to protect her? The Santos tell me this is not what your friend seeks.
(INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER) (TENSE MUSIC) ORIATE CRUCITA: It is not protection this woman is looking for.
It is a reckoning.
(MUSIC ESCALATES) I'd love to thank to that hurricane you came in with was all about my undeniable sex appeal.
Unfortunately, for my ego, I know better.
(HEAVY SIGH) Just work.
I'm listening.
(SIGHS) I want to run my business in a way, and The competition is forcing me to change.
And you have to make compromises.
And if you don't, they try to take you down.
Most people give in "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" mentality.
Something tells me you can beat them.
If the train is taking you to somewhere you don't wanna go, to someone you don't wanna be, get off the train.
Thank you.
I'm also available for all the stuff we just did if you need help working that out again.
(TENSE MUSIC) You don't have to do this, Marcel.
We can handle this bitch on our own.
You're gonna wanna stop talking.
Right now.
Shomari James.
Marcel.
I knew I was getting them A-T-L boys.
I didn't know I was getting the boss.
We go back, man.
And you got beef this hot, I'm here to put a period on that shit.
So how you want this to go down? Scorched earth.
Her people, her spots Mari, she don't see the sun rise.
Say less.
(CAR DOORS SLAMMING) (EXHALES) (CRICKETS CHIRPING) (DOOR CLICKS, CREAKS) All right.
(DOOR THUDS SHUT) (SIGHS) Now you know my secret.
Are you in love with her? We didn't plan for it to happen.
(SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC) My cousin killed his own brother like it was nothing, just to seize power.
Imagine what he would do if he knew about Emilia.
Boaz is my associate, but you're with me now.
(SIGHS) Gracias.
I don't know how to thank you, patrona.
Put a man on my friend for protection.
He can't know.
Are we crazy? To want something different in this life? I don't know.
(SOMBER MUSIC) (ENGINE TURNS OVER) (TRAIN HORN BLARES) (TRAIN BELL RINGING) (GLASS BOTTLE CLINKS) (ENGINE REVVS) (TIRES SCREECHING) (MACHINE-GUN FIRE) (GRUNTS) MAN: (YELPS) (GRUNTS) (SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC) They almost got me.
It was Dumas' men.
He brought them from outside.
I saw Georgia plates.
So, he's hired more men.
(SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC) (INDISTINCT CHATTER) - (LINE RINGING) - (CHATTER CONTINUES) (INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER) - TERESA: Hello? - Patrona, we have a problem.
The Judge's cops just rounded up our men from the distillery.
The Judge is coming for us.
It's punishment for not backing down.
He's clearing the way for Dumas to finish us.
- (CAR DOOR SLAMS) - It's past my office hours, and I got a bourbon waiting for me at home.
I need my men released.
That's gonna be tricky given their questionable immigration status not to mention the unregistered firearms found on their persons.
How much is it going to cost? You've already heard my terms.
10% is too much.
(CHUCKLES) I've spent some time in your country.
I know your people like to haggle, but this isn't some Tia-Juana flea market, Miss Mendoza.
My price is final.
Now, you can pay it, or you can go back home and haggle with tourists over $5 souvenirs.
Your choice.
- Now, if you'll excuse me - Okay.
10%.
Wise decision.
You'll see how much smoother things go for you moving forward, Miss Mendoza.
(DARK MUSIC) (ENGINE TURNS OVER) I made a deal.
It will get our men released and put a stop to Dumas' attacks.
But they won't come out tonight, and Dumas' men are still coming for us.
Let's go inside.
We're sitting ducks out here.
JAVIER: And we know where Dumas' men hang out.
Maybe we should grab Cedric.
Good insurance just in case the Judge doesn't work fast enough.
You don't make a truce out of weakness.
You make it out of strength.
It's a smart move, Teresita.
Javier, don't let this end like Bobby.
I want him alive.
Sí, patrona.
(SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC) ((TENSE MUSIC)) (CLICK) (NEON BUZZING) No, not that.
CEDRIC: Hola.
(SOFT INDISTINCT CHATTER) (CAR DOOR DINGING) CEDRIC: Hey.
(CAR DOOR SLAMS) I gotta hustle, man.
Marcel's gonna be looking for me.
You even think of holding out on me, I'll send your ass back upstate finish your bid.
Wait, what? I already gave you her coke business, man.
I gave you her deal with Marcel.
Now, what else do you want? - RANDALL: What else do I want? - CEDRIC: (GRUNTS) I want details! There's a war now.
I know Marcel's got people in play.
Who taught you to do that? Oh, it's for protection.
When I was a young boy, mi tía Pilar, would drag me to la Botánica.
She told me that Santería was created when the slave-masters would force their slaves to practice Christianity.
So the slaves banded together and created their own secret religion so they can keep their own faith.
Mi tía survived life in Culiacán.
She survived cancer.
Dumas' men fired at me at point-blank range.
A bullet went right through my jacket and didn't even touch me.
The Orishas protected mi tía and me, and now, they will protect us.
I thought we would be safe here.
Building this business with decency has never been done.
They see a soft heart, and they think weakness.
Do you think it's weakness? I think it's courage.
But I also know that you will have to change to become the person that you're supposed to be.
What if that person scares me? - (SIREN WHOOPS) - (TIRES SCREECHING) Pinche Judge double-crossed us.
Safe room.
Go.
Blast anything that comes through that door.
Sí, patron.
(SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC) POTE.
POTE: Those are the guys who came after me.
The Judge's 10% has paid off.
Don't move.
(SIRENS WAILING) - MAN: Keep it right there.
- MAN: 'K, we got them.
(HEAVY MUSIC) (PHONE BUZZING) - (PHONE BEEPS, CLACKS) - Yes? Patrona, just saw Cedric meeting with the Judge's crooked cop.
Gave him Intel on Dumas and you.
So it was Cedric who ratted us out to the Judge, not Dumas? JAVIER: I've got Cedric in my sights.
What do you wanna do, Patrona? - I want to talk to you.
- I ain't got nothing to say to you.
TERESA: Then you can listen.
(PHONE BUZZING) (KEYPAD BEEPS) Sí? Muy bien.
Okay.
O'Keefe and Common.
Gracias.
I need you to deliver a message to Dumas.
I want a truce.
You killed his people.
And he killed mine.
This war isn't good for any of us.
You need me alive to deliver that message.
Make sure he gets it.
(ENGINE TURNS OVER) (SOFT, DRAMATIC MUSIC) (PHONE UNLOCKS, TAPPING) (KEYPAD BEEPS) (LINE RINGING) DUMAS: What do you want? You got my message? Yeah, I did.
You sic the Judge's dogs on my guys and you think I'm done? Listen.
You got one man in your pocket.
I got hitters in every city phone call away.
You may want to wait.
I have information that affects your business.
(LOCK GRINDS) (ENGINE TURNS OVER) (PANTING) I don't know what this bitch's telling you Shut the hell up! Come here.
Come here.
(GRUNTS) You sold me out.
You sold us out for this.
No.
The Judge had me, man.
You know he had me on probation, said he's gonna violate me back to Orleans Parish Prison ten years if I ain't play ball.
No, no, listen (STAMMERS) I'm sorry, man.
Let it go.
Don't do this, brother.
We we family! - Ced - (WHIMPERS) I see how you do family.
I'ma show you how we do betrayal.
Wait.
Marcel.
The Judge doesn't know we found his rat.
We can use that.
(SCOFFING) MARCEL: It's all right.
This lady just bought your life.
Make it worth it.
MARCEL: I grew up with that kid, I know his mama.
Had a rat, and you found him.
That don't take away what you took from me.
I don't know how they do shit in Sinaloa.
Bobby was familia.
You're right.
I thought you betrayed me to the Judge, and I ended our business deal without listening to you.
I didn't intend to kill Bobby.
He made a move and died under my watch.
None of this had to happen.
I acted without knowing the whole story.
You're goddamn right you did.
There's only one person who profits off of us at war.
(TENSE MUSIC) The Judge.
The only way for people like him to stay in power is to keep people like us at each other's throats.
Slave-master mentality.
Ain't a new thing around here.
(SCOFFS) How are you suggesting that we move forward? I would like to resume our business deal.
I will supply you a monthly shipment of my product.
And this.
For Bobby's family.
(SOFT MUSIC) All right.
(INDISTINCT TV CHATTER) Ah, no (SPEAKS SPANISH) (BOTH SPEAKING SPANISH) (LAUGHS) Gracias.
(SPEAKING SPANISH) Si.
- - (SIGHS) Sí.
(SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC) (OBJECT THUNKS) - JUDGE: Lookie here.
- (BUG MACHINE CRACKLES) Christmas came early.
(CHUCKLES) There's more.
Cedric called.
Said Dumas struck a truce with Mendoza.
How do we feel about that? Ah As long as Ms.
Mendoza proves useful to us, it's my pleasure to have her here as our guest.
I'm nothing if not magnanimous.
(CHUCKLES) There's nearly half a million in those bags.
She got it liquid in a heartbeat.
(LAUGHS) Her money may get us our shiny new correctional facility much faster than we thought, where she'll have her own private room If she survive that long.
EDDIE: Thank you for bringing dinner.
It was amazing.
- You made it, right? - (BOTH LAUGH) (SOULFUL MUSIC PLAYING) No (LAUGHS) Hey, all I can make are scrambled eggs, so You seem better.
Why didn't you mention Birdie? It's my fault she's gone.
How is it your fault? It was a random act of violence.
It happened at my bar.
Could've had better security.
Could-a, should-a Regret's gonna eat you alive.
Sometimes, you spend so much time dwelling on the past that you forget to live.
I lived most of my life running from my past.
That's not living.
That's surviving.
We should want more than that, right? Are we still talking about me? (PATS THIGH) (WHISPERS) Come here.
What's in it for me? MEN: You must not be looking You must not be trying Must not be trying He's asleep.
KELLY ANNE: Yeah? Finally.
Poor kid hadn't been sleeping.
He was waiting up for you, you know.
- He waited up? - KELLY ANNE: Mm-hmm.
- (FRIDGE OPENS) - You're real good with him.
- (GRUNTS) - (BOTTLE HISSES) He's a good boy.
Yeah, he is.
You know, I think he kinda looks up to you like a father figure.
(BOTTLE CLUNKS DOWN) (SIGHS) (SOFT DRAMATIC MUSIC) What's wrong? It wasn't my fault.
What wasn't? Everyone knows the rules.
Chino knew the rules Tony's Tony's father.
He was stealing from my boss, and I was just following orders, and he knew the rules.
That's why I felt nothing when I squeezed the trigger and took his life.
But I feel something now.
Hey.
It's understandable.
Why? Because Tony means something to you now.
Mm.
(FOREBODING MUSIC)
