Safe House (2015) s02e04 Episode Script

Series 2, Episode 4

I was stuck in a room with Griffin for six days trying to get him to talk, but the crow had this power over him.
Where is she, Griffin? Where is she? Why didn't you tell me? I thought you'd think I was a monster.
Let me guess, Tom put you up to this.
He told me all about you.
He told me how ruthless you are.
I had the back of everyone on my team and in Tom's case that could've meant jail, never mind my career.
He needs to leave this case alone, Sam.
Make him see that, please.
Can I help you? Griffin gave this place up.
He knew Lane would bring her here.
Roger Lane? I need to ask you some questions.
I know him, it's Roger lane.
- How do you know Roger? - I took pictures for him, erm, sales brochures, erm, that kind of stuff.
Could this be the man who took Emma? Yes, I suppose it could be, yeah.
Julie? We've had to release Roger Lane.
What? Why? I need to notify John, but he hasn't got his phone.
OK.
I know where he is.
Oh, God.
- Liam? - I wanted to apologise.
It's a bad time, all right.
Give me a call on Monday or something.
- I just want my job back.
- Not now.
Liam? John? Where's Roger Lane? I've issued an all-ports warning and a PNC broadcast.
- Where are they going? - You need to go home, - get some sleep.
- What did they find? Nothing yet.
No signs of a struggle.
They need to process.
Are you saying that this was an accident? No, I'm not.
What I'm saying is that it's still early days and so far there's no evidence of foul play.
Maybe he was just trying to fix the alarm, he's lost his footing.
I found this whisky on his desk, half-drunk.
That'd suit you, wouldn't it? - What does that mean? - If you hadn't lost Lane, - Channing would still be alive.
- We don't know that yet, Tom.
This could just have been an accident.
It could be bad luck.
Bad luck? What, the same bad luck that had one husband slash his wrists and the other one put a rope round his neck? This was always about the men, Jane.
We need to find Lane.
Simon, Julie Delaney's partner was found dead on a building site this morning.
- My God.
- The police are saying that he lost his footing.
Accidental death.
They released Roger Lane.
Have they not brought him back in? You know what I'm gonna ask you, don't you? - If Lane is the crow - No, I can't come to the safe house, Tom.
Just for a couple of days.
You and Liam.
I can't just drop everything and The man found on the building site did he work there? - I can't tell you that - Was he called John Channing? Liam worked for him.
Where is Liam? He's not here.
He didn't come home last night.
Is that unusual? Did you have a row with him or something? No, no.
He'd gone, er, when I came back.
You were the last person to see him.
- Right - Did he say anything? He talked about his boss.
Er, that he regretted leaving his job.
- And? - I dunno.
I got I got the feeling that he was gonna try and get it back.
Doesn't sound like it worked out, does it? Griffin's the missing link, but he's still unconscious.
Tell me something about Lane's whereabouts.
Anything.
- Long shot - Go on.
There was a new padlock on the door where we found Julie.
Dutch manufacturer.
Hoelson.
OK.
Hoelson went bust six years ago and before they did their local outlet was Griffin's locksmiths.
What're you saying? That Lane had access to Griffin's old stock? Maybe even the shop.
I mean, there's no record of a sale or a CPO.
Perfect bolt-hole.
Do you want to drive? '.
.
message after the tone.
Liam, it's Tom again, mate.
Can you call me back, please? I just wanna make sure you're OK.
If you need picking up, I can come and get you.
Vedder, Hoelson padlocks, lots of them.
What's that? New Mersey Estates.
Looks like Roger Lane's been cutting keys here on the QT.
And very recently.
These look freshly cut.
7 Bluebell Drive.
John and Julie's.
Sam? Sam? I'm sorry about John.
They're calling it an accident.
Can you believe that? - How's Dani? - I didn't see her.
We've made a link between John and Liam Duke.
"We"? So, back on the force again, are you? What's that supposed to mean? - Sam? - Forget it.
Bad timing.
Oh, don't give me that.
Come on.
Tell me.
You said Elizabeth stabbed you in the back.
She betrayed you.
But she didn't.
She knew what you did to Griffin and she covered it up.
- Who told you that? - She did.
- What? When? - Doesn't matter.
Why did you lie about it? Loyalty, I suppose.
Loyalty? To what? She saved Luke Griffin's life.
When we were on the beach.
I thought he was gone but she brought him back.
You find it easy to lie, don't you? Why are we even talking about this? A tough, political animal like Elizabeth puts her neck on the block for one of her boys? Covers up torture, risks jail.
And all because she's just a great boss? How naive do you think I am, Tom? You were sleeping with her.
Why does it matter? How long? About a year.
- Why have you never told me this before? - She was married.
- It got messy.
- Messy how? She was pregnant.
I wanted her to keep it and leave her husband Jesus! - I love you, Sam.
- Really? Suddenly it seems like I was the easy option with the big house.
- You know you weren't.
- How do I know? You've lied about everything.
I'm telling you the truth now! Because you have to.
Not because you wanted to.
- Hello.
- Tom? Is that you? Yeah, Liam.
I didn't do anything.
I I just found John there.
What happened, Liam? He was bleeding from where he hit the bar.
What were you doing there? Asking for my job back, like you said.
Right.
Did you talk to him? He was busy so I went to the pub and had a couple of pints, came back.
Why didn't you call the police? I tried to resuscitate him.
I did a first-aid course once with Dad.
All I could remember was CPR's dangerous if you get it wrong.
And I had his blood on me.
I panicked.
You believe me, don't you? Yeah.
Yeah, I do.
You'll have to tell all this to the police though, OK? OK.
- Simon Duke.
- I've got Liam, he's fine.
Thank God.
Thank God.
Where Where are you? I'm going to take him to the safe house.
What? He turned up at my local station, Simon.
Right.
Look, I really think you should come and stay with us for a few days.
I'm coming.
I don't need to be persuaded.
Look, Tom, the police are here and Tom.
Vedder.
I've picked up Liam Duke and Yeah.
Yeah, we know.
We know he worked for Channing.
He also found his body.
When you bring Simon out, you're gonna need to take a statement.
Yeah, yeah.
- Hi.
- Hiya, Sam.
- This is Simon Duke.
- Hi.
Come in.
- Nice to meet you.
- Thank you.
Hi.
This way, follow me.
We're ready for you, mate.
- Can I see Liam? - In a minute, Simon.
All right? Liam, I'm DI Vedder.
Would you like a cup of tea? Oh, look Amazing.
Tom.
Doesn't look a day older.
What's his secret? - Must be the sea air.
- Yeah.
Must be.
And I bet leaving the force helped.
That's their loss.
He was a great copper, your husband.
Actually, we're not married.
Umm My mistake.
- Milk? - Er, yes, please.
The other coppers, they just They just saw me and Liam as sources of information.
Kind of receptacles that might help with their inquiry.
But not Tom.
He saw us as human beings.
He knew that .
.
we'd have Emma's fate hanging over us for the rest of our lives.
Shall I show you to your room? - Er, thank you.
- Take your tea.
I'm with you.
That's no act.
He's scared shitless.
What about Roger Lane? We're throwing everything we've got at finding him.
Good luck.
If we dig down about two feet and put the wire down there, we can stop them from burrowing under.
- Hey, Simon.
- Hi.
- You OK, Liam? - Yeah.
Everything go all right with DI Vedder? Should we maybe put some shuttering on the inside? It would certainly strengthen it, wouldn't it? That's a good idea.
I'm just going to find a spot to take some photos, if you want to join me? Just helping Tom.
Don't go too far, Simon.
- All right? - OK.
No problem.
- Simon.
- Hi.
What a spot, eh? It's just It's stunning.
- Cheers.
- Had a nose round your boats as well.
- I hope that's OK? - Of course, it is.
Could do with restocking the fleet.
No, they're great.
Noble vessels.
- Not sure about the website, though.
- No? No.
The pictures just, you know, don't do the place justice.
Which is, you know, something I'd like to remedy, with your blessing.
- You knock yourself out.
- All right.
Liam's a lovely lad.
- He's a credit to you.
- Ah, well, you know, a change of scene's already doing him good.
Is Is everything OK with Sam? Yeah.
Why? Oh, no, no reason.
Well, you must have some reason to ask? Look, I mean, I don't know, but she seemed a bit tense, that's all.
No, she's She's fine.
You're a natural, aren't you? Must be nice.
- How do you mean? - Oh, you know, I mean outdoor shit.
Manly pursuits.
Sort of comes naturally to you.
There's plenty of stuff I can't do.
- Yeah.
Come on.
- Like pictures, for one thing.
It's always floor and feet and sky.
Yeah, course.
Not the same thing though, is it? - That's funny - What's that? There was a car parked there earlier, I got near and it just drove off.
It's come around again.
- What make was it? - Oh, er, cars aren't my thing.
Sorry.
It was silver.
You know what, I think we should be heading back? Go back? - Is that all right? - Yeah.
Sure, yeah.
- Oh, no, you take that, I'll - OK.
We've just picked up Roger Lane trying to get on a ferry to Ireland.
- How long till he gets here? - An hour, tops.
- Too long.
I want blues and twos all the way.
- Yes, ma'am.
You've changed your tune, haven't you? About Griffin having a partner.
Eight years you dismissed that, didn't you? - The evidence speaks for itself.
- Oh, simple as that? Hey, listen.
I'm not petty.
I'm not going to say the world is flat just cos Tom Brook says it's round.
It still doesn't mean I have to like him.
- Christ, Liam.
- Are we in danger? No.
- We've just got a fox, that's all.
- Can I come with you? No.
I'll be back in a minute.
We found the locksmiths, - the padlocks you used to secure Julie.
- What locksmiths? The one where you copy the agency keys so your colleagues are none the wiser.
I don't know what you're talking about.
You're tied to this in too many ways, Roger.
You employed Griffin.
You employ Simon Duke and his wife Emma was the last woman who vanished without a trace.
Say when.
- Hah.
When.
- I am allowed.
You're allowed, but you're not used to it.
How do you know? Had some heavy nights up in Manchester.
- At your age, got to be done.
- There you go.
Yea, well, everything in moderation.
That's a shit motto.
That is a shit motto.
- There you go.
- It wasn't John's motto, that's for sure.
He lived life to the full.
In the pub till 2:00, first on site come the morning.
He was a top bloke, all told.
"All told"? You mean, like, he wasn't a saint? No.
He wasn't.
Somebody dies and all the bad bits get forgotten.
It's the same with Mum.
I mean, we don't know she's dead but - Liam.
- I mean it.
She wasn't a saint either.
- None of us are.
- Yeah, well, that's too true.
Remember how she was always losing her phone? Or going out without it? And we didn't know where she was.
Small fry in the scheme of things.
You used to get pretty angry with her.
- "Frustrated" is the word that I would use.
- I wouldn't.
I'd say "angry".
Liam, please.
I just don't get it.
All day I've been asking myself how can it just be chance that I worked with someone who's been killed by I keep thinking "I'm the connection.
" I'm the link.
I should be able to explain it, but I can't.
I can't.
No.
- Great.
- It's OK.
Sorry.
Sorry.
- I'm just changing my shirt.
- Liam.
Liam! Feels like I'm the bad guy today.
You're never the bad guy.
'So why did you run?' Look, I've made mistakes.
I know I have.
But Luke Griffin killed those women, not me.
Don't be modest.
Sneaking into houses, building camps, taunting the men? Making their deaths look like suicides? Luke didn't come up with that.
You did have one thing in common, though.
You both had zero success with women and hated those strong men that did.
You used that to manipulate him.
You shared the spoils, while Luke did the donkey work.
Transport, keys, locks.
An extra pair of hands and undying loyalty.
- Why did you run? - Because I knew you'd never stop.
I knew you'd search every last factory, bedsit on our books.
- And? - And I knew you'd find them.
- Find what? - The cameras.
A couple of flats with female tenants in I installed cameras.
I just look, that's all.
I just look.
I-I tried to be both parents.
Maybe I tried too hard.
He'd probably prefer a dad like you.
You know, strong and capable.
Liam? What is it, Liam? I I was I just Liam.
Liam, it's OK.
OK.
OK.
Listen.
Calm down.
You're wearing my sweater.
It suits you.
Where did you find it? Which bag? It's OK.
OK.
It's better that you know.
After all these years.
You must understand that I did it for you.
What? Liam.
Liam! Liam.
It was all for you, Liam.
I was shoring up what she was trying so hard to destroy.
It was our family.
It was our home.
All the affairs, - and her threats to leave, and her drinking - The affairs? - John Channing was no different.
- What do you mean? Wasn't enough that he employed you.
He sent you to Manchester.
I don't understand.
He was trying to take you away from me, Liam.
To come between us.
I mean, the fucking arrogance.
Ahh! - Are you OK? - Agh! He's just flipped and ran off - What's going on with you two? - I told you.
His mum.
It's like It's like he blames me for what happened.
I just hope he doesn't do anything stupid.
- Is that likely? - I don't know.
Liam's a volatile soul at the best of times - but now with all this being dragged up again - Volatile? I just think we need to find him, is what I'm trying to say.
- We'll find him.
- He can't have gone far.
I'll search the beach.
[Liam!] [Liam!] 'What about Simon Duke? Did he ever meet Griffin? I mean, they both worked for you?' Just the once I think, er, at our Christmas party.
- Hang on.
Are you sure about that? - Positive.
Well, Simon must've told you when you arrested Griffin? OK.
So they met? As in they spoke to each other? Yeah.
For about an hour or so.
- When we nicked Griffin for Emma's murder - Mm-hm.
.
.
Simon said that he'd never met him.
- Are you sure? - What? Course I'm sure, I interviewed him.
Simon? It's Liam, he's come back.
He's He's locked himself in the attic.
Er he won't talk to me.
He He's asking for you.
All right, I'm on my way.
Tell us about, Simon.
What's he like? Nice bloke.
Great photographer.
He struggled a bit when the local ragfolded but, er, he survived.
Always felt a bit sorry for him.
Because of what happened to Emma? Nah.
Before that.
Well, she was that bit younger than him and so pretty.
Simon? Sam? She play away? It all came out in the pub one night.
I told him "That's why I never married.
Mate, if you don't play, you can't lose.
" And what did he say to that? He said, er He said, "It's not the women who are to blame, it's the men.
" Why are you asking about Simon? It's all about the men.
Get Tom on the phone.
I'll get firearms to the safe house now.
Liam, you all right, mate? No, Simon, please.
Simon, please.
Leave her alone.
That's it.
That's right.
Go on, break free.
Go on, break free and save her! That's what real men do, isn't it? Look at you.
It's your man, look at him.
Look at you, you twat, dressed like an arse-hole! Calm down or else I'll shoot her face off.
Say goodbye, Sam.
Say goodbye.
- Don't do it, Simon.
- Say goodbye, Sam.
Don't do it, Simon.
Don't do it, Simon.
Say goodbye.
Go on.
(That's it.
) That's it.
It'll be fine.
(I love you.
) Goodbye.
Come on, come on.
- Ugh! - Agh! - Back off! - Ahh! Get your hands off her, you bastard! Shut up! Fucking arse-hole! Get up! Get out! - No! - Look at him, one last look.
Sam! Sam! No! Fuck! No! Sam! - Get in.
- No! Get in.
Fuck you! Oh, shut up.
Sam! Sam! Sam! Sam! Sam! Sam! Where is she? Where is she? Where is she? Simon, where is she? Where's Sam? Where is she? What have you done with her? Where is she? Is this what you want? What have you done with her? Ahh! Tell me.
Where is she? Where is she? Do you like that? Where is she? Where is she? - She's gone, Tom.
- She's not gone.
She's not gone! - She's gone.
- She's not gone! Tom! Tom! Tom! Tom! Get off him! Tom! You bought it on yourself, Tom.
You arrogant bastard! Tom! Tom! Get off him! Move it! What have you done with her, eh? What have you done with her? Hey.
Bastard!
