The Blacklist s02e10 Episode Script

Luther Braxton: Conclusion

Hang on, hang on! You're not gonna die today.
Hang on.
Okay, okay.
Come here.
Okay? All right.
Let's get the hell out of here.
Come on, come on.
- What do we have? - The Factory's been hit and is burning.
All communications down.
No audio or video in or out.
Search and Rescue? I've no authorization to dispatch Coast Guard.
- My people are on that rig.
- A level 10 facility.
It does not exist.
It never existed.
If you think I'm gonna let you and the director cover your asses at the expense of the lives of my people, then-- Off the record, the Factory was bombed to prevent terrorists from getting their hands on vital secrets.
On the record, this incident never occurred.
If you're not interested in the detainees, fine.
But there are over 75 people who work for you who are gonna drown and burn.
If you don't contact Search and Rescue, I will.
Do that and you will be relieved of duty.
Without confirmation of survivors, is it really worth making that call? Reddington! Where's Keen? Braxton took her.
- Ah.
- Any of these comms working? That walkie has a range of a thousand yards at the most.
Unassisted, yeah, but a dipole antenna array will boost the signal.
This rig is sinking.
If we can't make contact, anyone here who doesn't burn is gonna drown.
You said Braxton took Keen.
Why? Where am I? Where are Agents Ressler and Navabi? Did they make it? Don't know.
Don't care.
How does it feel to have something people are willing to die for locked up in that pretty, little head of yours? - I don't know anything.
We'll see.
I don't know who gave you clearance but we're closed to traum-- He's got a g-- I've been monitoring flights around Norton Sound with proximity to the Factory.
The FAA picked up an aircraft entering Juneau airspace ID'd as a medevac chopper.
The FAA doesn't require flight plans or passenger manifests for medevac choppers.
I think that's how Braxton plans to disappear.
- Where did they land? - Grace River Hospital.
Notify the hospital.
Make sure they have Braxton's mug shot.
That incident you insist didn't occur, it just came to shore.
Okay, listen up.
Juneau P.
was unable to apprehend Braxton, but he was positively ID'd.
I want surveillance from every camera within 10 blocks of that hospital.
Coast Guard, they're picking up a signal from the Factory.
- That's some kind of SOS.
- Survivors.
I'm making that call whether you like it or not.
We're on final approach.
We need a head count on survivors.
Helo 2.
Helo 2.
Emergency message, plus three.
You're not going anywhere.
Let's go.
I'm hitting a wall.
She'll talk.
Oh, no.
She's talking.
Told me everything she remembered, which is nothing.
You saying she wasn't there? I'm saying if she was there, she's repressed her memory.
Buried it so deep that I can't even get her to talk about it.
The Fulcrum.
Where is it? I envy you your ability to block a horrible memory.
I needed help to do that.
Lucky for me, the person who helped me forget is gonna help you remember.
Max, I'm not gonna tell you to pick up your dominoes again.
Come on.
We gotta go.
We're late.
Max? - Max? - Hey, doc.
- Remember me? - Braxton.
- It's gonna be okay.
It's gonna be okay.
- I don't know, doc.
Depends on you.
What do you want? Let's go for a ride.
The princess here has something in her head that I want.
It's a memory.
Now, you helped make all my memories go away.
You made Khafji disappear.
Just like a magic trick.
I'm thinking, if you were able to bury one of my memories then you can retrieve some of hers.
It's not that simple.
Mom, they-- - They said they won't hurt me - Max.
if you do what they say, so please, Mom, plea-- Max.
Don't hurt him.
Don't you hurt him.
Guys, there are people looking for me.
If they find me, they'll find you.
Now you are going to go into her head and you're gonna retrieve a memory.
If you do that, if you help me, you'll be helping Max.
Do I make myself clear? Give him a list of everything you're gonna need.
Sebastian, brother.
I didn't think you made it out.
He didn't.
I did.
Oh, man.
This is just like Belgrade, huh, boy-o? Whatever you want, I get.
This is nothing like Belgrade.
What was the name of that kid? One you had running point? Wish I could've been there when you opened that door found him hanging by your necktie.
His name was Henkel.
Henkel! That's right.
Kid was a talker.
You're out of your depth, Luther.
You don't know the people you're dealing with.
You're a fine thief, meticulous and careful but this is different.
You're improvising and you and I both know thinking on your feet is not your strong suit, Luther.
You will make a mistake and when you do, I will be there to indulge in the undeniable pleasure and sweet satisfaction of "I told you so.
" Well, you better hurry.
Because your girlfriend, the princess she's got the answers in her head that I'm looking for and I found a way to get them out.
I spoke with Cooper.
The Coast Guard pilots who transported us are being debriefed.
As far as the rest of the world is concerned, you are presumed missing.
You need to look for any known associates of Braxton's with psychiatric medical training.
Neurologists, psychiatrists, pharmacologists- Wait.
Slow down.
Braxton is trying to extract a memory from Agent Keen.
He will do so by any means necessary.
He's likely contacted someone for that purpose already.
Find out who that someone is.
What memory? A memory she has no memory of.
You said you had the situation - under control.
- I do.
- The strike was unsuccessful.
- Now we have survivors to contend with.
Not to mention the incident at the public hospital.
The missile strike will be made public.
It will be blamed on, uh, inmate uprising, which got out of hand.
Combatants took the facility executed staff, and were preparing to escape.
We unfortunately had no other choice but to act aggressively.
Loss of life, although tragic, was unavoidable.
- Is there any accounting for Reddington? - Or the Fulcrum? We will have the Fulcrum in our hands shortly.
How? I have a team working on it as we speak.
Welcome back.
Sir, sir, I think I found a doctor with a connection to Braxton.
You're safe.
- Uh, what about Mr.
Reddington? - He's pursuing his own leads.
Aram, the doctor? Yes, right.
Uh, sorry.
Her name is Dr.
Selma Orchard.
She's an attending in neurology at Walter Reed and was part of a team that discovered a gene that makes it possible to erase memories.
I'm sorry.
Erase memories? Yeah, the gene is known as Tet1.
Critical to a process called memory extinction where painful events are replaced with more positive associations.
She was at Walter Reed.
Was Braxton a soldier there? First Gulf War.
He was part of a friendly fire incident with multiple casualties in Khafji.
- I assume he brought this home with him.
- Orchard must've treated him for this.
Selma Orchard.
Find her now.
It's called recovered memory therapy.
Going to use a combination of hypnotherapy and pharmaceuticals to put you into a lucid, waking dream state.
My field is in blocking trauma.
Extracting it, there are probable risks.
You don't have to do this.
I'm going to give you a sedative.
The mind turns things off for a reason.
I found that what the mind fights, the body tries to fight too.
I need you relaxed.
This is for your own safety.
He told me I need to take you back to a fire 26 years ago.
I don't wanna go back.
I'm sorry.
says there's no sign of forced entry or foul play but Orchard never showed up for work.
I just got off the phone with the boy's school.
He never showed up, either.
Braxton has them.
Elizabeth, I want you to close your eyes.
Now I want you to relax all of the muscles in your body.
Pretend that you can float.
As you float, all of the tension leaves your body.
Tension floats too but it floats away from you.
Now I want you to breathe in and out.
All of the tension is floating away.
You can't even feel it anymore.
All you can feel is yourself making the image of yourself clearer and clearer.
Focus on that image of yourself.
Only it's not you today.
It's you 26 years ago.
You can almost picture her, that little girl.
I'm gonna ask the little girl to open her eyes.
Are you ready? Three two one.
What do you see? A little girl - hiding.
- Okay, stay here, sweetie.
No matter what happens, stay here and don't come out till I come get you.
Understand? - Are you with her? - Yes.
- Where is she? - She'll be here.
Hey, what's your bunny's name? I'm not leaving without Masha.
Masha! She's not going back with you.
I know you're scared, but it's okay.
Lizzy? Can you hear me? - I'll just be with her.
- You wouldn't let me see her.
- Masha? - Get out! Hello.
Thank you for coming on such short notice.
Time is of the essence, so I'll skip introductions.
I've asked you all here because you all have one thing in common.
You all have business with Luther Braxton.
As rewarding as those relationships may have been, they've come to an end.
Braxton has started something he cannot finish.
He'll likely reach out to one of you for help.
When he does, you will contact me at the number I have provided.
Questions? Good.
What's in it for us? Life.
- Where are we on Dr.
Orchard? - Nowhere.
If Braxton did abduct her, he didn't leave a trace.
And Reddington? If he had a lead, we would have heard from him.
Metro P.
just called in a possible visual on Braxton near Anacostia.
He saw him get into a van with a couple of men after Orchard's abduction.
- Did they track it? - No, patrolman was on foot.
The van left before he could flag the plate.
Get to Anacostia, canvass the neighborhood.
Knock on every door.
If Braxton was there to meet someone, I wanna know who.
Hello, Dr.
Did you get the results? Yes.
At your office? This is not gonna work.
These drugs, she could become hypotensive.
- I gave you what you asked for.
- We need an anesthesiologist or an ER doc here.
I told you there are risks.
Well, then take the risks.
It's either her or your boy.
- Think you'd get away with it? - What's happening? They're shouting.
- Who? - What are they saying? Where is she? - You are in trouble.
- Because of you.
- Yes! - Don't be afraid.
- You told her.
- Yes, I did.
I told her.
- Come on! - Wait! - Come on! - Lizzy.
Come on.
Come on! - Where did he go? - Where did he go? I don't know.
- Ha-ha-ha.
- What's happening? She might be having a tangent memory.
Her brain is trying to replace a bad memory with a good one.
Over there! Here! Catch me.
- Lizzy.
- Lizzy, wait! - What is it? What do you see? - Stay here.
Don't go anywhere.
- What are they fighting about? - It's a secret.
Who's Masha? - You are.
- Instead they framed Masha.
Don't go out there.
You can't go out there.
Turn around, Lizzy! Go back! No! No! Don't! Daddy said not to come out! Okay, we're done.
Her blood pressure's through the roof.
She's in V-tach.
She needs lidocaine.
What do you think you're doing? You won't find what you're looking for if she's dead.
My father.
My father was there.
What have you got? Braxton contacted me right after you left.
- What's this? - Wiring instructions to an offshore account.
I'm not giving you this information.
I'm selling it.
Let me clarify the situation.
Braxton is holding a hostage.
I want her back.
Every second you waste reduces the chances of that happening.
- I appreciate your urgency.
- I don't think you do.
But I'm not telling you anything until we agree on a price.
I have units covering the southwest sector.
So start at the north end of the 700 block and work your way back.
- Anything? - Two eyewitnesses confirm Braxton met with a Wilson Bishop.
I had Aram run his profile.
He's a third-year med student at Johns Hopkins.
What does Braxton want with a med student? Your son, what's his name? His name is Max.
He's 9 years old.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry you got dragged into this.
In the dream, your father, you said he was there? The girl, she called him "Daddy.
" Did you see anything else or hear anything else? The little girl stopped me.
It's like she has some kind of a secret.
But I'm the girl.
Girl's a piece of your subconscious trying to prevent you from becoming aware of what happened.
I have no recollection of my mother or my father.
Not their faces, nothing.
All I know, or think I know, is that my father gave me this.
You can relax.
An extra 15 seconds won't make a difference either way.
It's done.
He needed a place to meet someone, someplace out of the way.
The address? He's right.
An extra 15 seconds probably won't change anything.
Hmm? Yes? - Mom? Mommy? - Max! - Mom? - Max, hi.
Are you okay, baby? - Where are you? - Everything's gonna be okay.
I love you.
I love you.
Just-- You have till 9:00.
If I don't find out what the agent knows by then, you'll never see your boy again.
Wait! Damn it! It's gonna be fine.
It's too dangerous.
Something happened, something people are willing to kill to find and whatever it was involved my father.
I'm not doing this for Braxton or for you.
I'm doing it for me.
I need to know the truth.
Where is it? I'll have it to you by 9.
I thought you said you had it already.
And I do.
I wanted that Fulcrum in my hands before I negotiated with you.
Need I remind you that the price had already been set? That was before you volleyed missiles at me and my men.
Now the price has gone up.
Braxton I don't think you fully appreciate the power of the people who have engaged your services.
Well, if they're that powerful then I'm sure they can afford an extra 10 percent.
Go find the money, chief.
You do that and I'll have what you want by 9:00.
I want you to call me as soon as you get confirmation of funds.
Nah, we'll get the intel out of that girl's head even if I gotta drill a hole in her skull and hang her upside down.
All right.
Will do.
If you're looking for your driver, he's napping in the trunk.
Son of a bitch.
Luther, I never thought I'd enjoy having anything in my mouth as much as Petty Officer Virginia Sherman.
But this? Heh, my God! It tastes so good! I hesitate to swallow and I certainly don't wanna spit it out.
Oh, what the hell.
I told you so.
Elizabeth Keen.
Where is she? I don't know.
Maybe she's dead.
Maybe you're too late, boy-o.
Just like you were for Henkel in Belgrade.
Can I let you in on a little secret about Belgrade? I barely remember it.
I'd forgotten about the deutsche marks, and I don't think I ever even met Henkel.
Tell you the truth, I don't think his name was Henkel.
I don't know who the hell he was, but this this, I can promise you, I will always remember.
Now get in the damn car.
Elizabeth, can you hear me? Nod if you can hear me.
Now follow my voice and tell me where you are.
- The closet.
- What's happening? They'll kill you if you don't give it back.
They'll kill me if I do.
They're arguing.
What are they arguing about? Did you really think I'd let this happen? That I wouldn't come for her? Hey, you know what? The Fulcrum.
It's the only thing keeping me alive.
Wilson Bishop, FBI.
Come here.
Come here.
Hey, hey.
What are you doing, man? What are you doing? - Braxton.
You met with him.
- I don't know what you're talking about.
You're a resident at a hospital with access to all kinds of psychopharmaceuticals.
You sold to him.
- He kidnapped an FBI agent.
- Don't know anything about a kidnapping.
He's gonna use your drugs on that agent.
- She dies-- - He wanted diazoxide.
- Naloxone-- Where is he? - Had me deliver equipment for sedations.
- An address! Braxton, call me back.
Where the hell are you? Is she okay? I'm not gonna hurt you.
Is she okay? Aram, we found Wilson Bishop.
We're en route, and we need you to send units to Coal Chute and Spring.
I have information regarding Agent Keen's abductor.
On our way.
Ten minutes out.
Well, Braxton was holding a young boy.
His name is Max Orchard.
My people have secured the boy, send a unit.
Dembe will give you the address.
Max is my son.
The FBI are on their way to him now.
She's still heavily sedated.
What happened? - But my son, Max.
- Your son is gonna be fine.
Tell me about Agent Keen.
She was undergoing a procedure called RM therapy.
Braxton was searching for a memory.
Does she remember the past? Pieces.
- What pieces? - A fire, an argument.
She remembers something called the Fulcrum.
Does she know where it is, the Fulcrum? No.
But we were close.
If she continued, would it be dangerous for her? Could she be harmed in any way? It's hard to say.
She's been through a lot.
But typically, if the therapy is done properly and with great care then, no.
Split up.
It's gotta be the basement or the attic.
Can you see it? Can you hear me, Lizzy? - Take her to - I need you to tell me where it is.
- Where is the Fulcrum, Lizzy? - Let me go! Get away from me! Shh, shh.
You don't wanna see this.
What you want to see, what you need to find is the Fulcrum.
Where is it, Lizzy? Can you see it? Lizzy, turn around.
Go back.
You don't wanna go in there.
Lizzy, turn around and go back.
Go back, go back.
What happened? What did she see? Listen to me.
You have to say something.
There's a fire.
I know you saw something and you don't wanna go out there but you can't stay here.
You have to scream.
Do you hear me? As loud as you can, you have to scream! You have to-- Hey! Hey.
What the hell are you doing to her? What are you doing? - Get her up.
Wake her up now.
- Not now.
- Reddington.
Reddington! - It's not safe.
- Wake her up now.
- Wait.
Not now.
You do what you have to do.
You do it now! Wait.
Daddy! No! You were there.
You were there, weren't you? Yes.
There were people with the woman, looking for it.
The Fulcrum.
You were one of them.
It's not that simple.
But that's why you were there.
That's why you came into my life then.
And that's why you're here now.
Not because of me or who I am to you whatever connection we might have but because of some object.
Some thing.
Whatever you remember-- What I remember is leaving my father dying on the floor of a burning house.
There's no way he could have survived that.
Lizzy, the memories of a 4-year-old are unreliable.
My father was killed because of the Fulcrum because you and your people came for it that night.
Well, I want you to know something.
This charade of you pretending to care about me was a waste of your time because I don't know where it is.
Don't! - Mommy.
- Max! Ah.
Are You Okay? Are you okay? Are you okay? Look at you.
Oh, thank God.
I'm meeting with Braxton within the hour.
Yes, of course I've discussed contingencies regarding Reddington with all of our colleagues.
I'm going to have to call you back.
You wouldn't believe how much he weighs.
Do you have any idea who I am? Yes.
I know just what you are.
Sit the hell down.
I've alerted security.
You seem younger in person than you appear to be when lurking in the background on television.
Are you a swimmer? - I'm someone not to be trifled with.
- Mm.
Then we have something in common.
You hire a simple thief to find the Fulcrum because you believe I don't have it.
So I return him to you, defects and all to make it abundantly clear that you should never again doubt who I am and what I have.
I know exactly who you are.
A thug.
You may have convinced some of my colleagues that you are a force to be reckoned with but I do not share that assessment.
So consider yourself warned.
We will not hesitate to use every resource at our disposal.
Whatever it takes we will cripple you.
I don't think you have any real comprehension of the depth and breadth of your vulnerability.
But only the one who possesses the Fulcrum could possibly fathom that.
I think you're bluffing.
I don't think you have it.
I don't think you ever did.
Try me.
Call my bluff.
Call my bluff.
Oh, my God.
I don't know what the hell you're gonna do with him.
Honestly, he's like a damn side of beef.
You're not gonna believe this.
What is it? This morning, there was an attempted takeover of a U.
detention camp in the Norton Sound.
We believe that the timing of this uprising was set to coincide with the transfer of international fugitive Raymond Reddington.
Are you saying that he was responsible for the breach? How did he orchestrate an attack if he was in custody? Did he succeed? I'm not gonna be taking any questions now but I can confirm that the whereabouts of Raymond Reddington are unknown.
Thank you for meeting me.
You said it was urgent? I didn't mean to alarm you, but I thought you should know that during the RM therapy, when you were under, I saw something.
So what? What does that mean? Based on how you responded Liz, I don't think I'm the first one who's looked into your memory.
I've never been treated.
You may not remember.
You may have been very young.
But I think someone may have tried to block your memory of that fire.
I didn't make it up.
The people and the events may have been there but in different roles.
I know this is difficult to comprehend.
Are you telling me I may never know what really happened that night? I'm telling you the people who could tell you what happened are the people who want you to forget.
