The Blacklist s04e08 Episode Script

Dr. Adrian Shaw: Conclusion

1 Previously on "The Blacklist" Enter the code! And Reddington is suddenly looking for a mysterious blood doctor who's doing cutting-edge research into gene sequencing.
- You're Raymond Reddington.
- And you're in my debt.
Red: The plan is already in motion.
Men are coming, Elizabeth.
Men who kill every living thing who gets in their way.
Tell Harold and then you get out of that hospital.
Massive Attack & Young Fathers: Voodoo in my blood is living Blood take I'm chillin' Chill me got the soul of a mimic It's not quite right, you must be silly Sign of the wars is my grinning Okay, cameras up.
When you engage, you have a 4-minute window for extraction.
I'm yours, I'm yours Colonel Wright ordered a dialysis.
Can't let you in without a scan.
Odette: Okay, Viktor, someone's coming.
Can I help you? [Silenced gunshots.]
[Drill whirring.]
Four minutes and counting.
Is it true? The DNA test? You're not Kirk's daughter.
Tell your team to expect a full military assault.
What are you talking about? I just got off the phone with Reddington.
He has reason to believe Kirk's men are coming to break him out.
Call it off.
You talked to Reddington.
He's the only one who gets you worked up like this.
If you try to escape, innocent people will die.
Secure area on the left.
Keep the front door open Wipe that cheeky grin and come on down [Objects thud.]
Incendiaries are live.
Even if you could get out, what's the point? You are sick.
You can help me, Masha.
I know you don't wanna believe this, - but those test results - They were altered by Reddington.
No, they're real.
I'm not your daughter.
Reddington wants me dead, Masha.
- He always has.
- Maybe.
I don't know.
But I do know that I can't save your life.
And you aren't going anywhere.
[Faint hissing.]
You're wrong.
We're leaving here together, solnishko.
No arguments.
- Mama, stop giving me grief - [Alarm ringing.]
Why does the blood always stick - Woman over P.
: May I have - Agent Keen.
your attention, please? There has been a fire emergency reported in the building.
[Speaking indistinctly.]
- Our people are inside.
- Man: Copy that.
Wipe that cheeky May I have your attention, please? There has been We believe the fire's a false flag to help Kirk break out.
Tell your people no one in or out of this room until I say otherwise.
- What's hospital protocol? - Evacuation and/or containment.
This ward is specifically designed to go into emergency lockdown.
Has anyone seen Tom? Come on, man.
Let me in.
My wife's in there.
- Can't do it.
- You know me.
I've been in and out all day.
I just went to get a cup of coffee.
Sorry, we have orders.
Well, you're letting these guys in, right? [Alarm ringing.]
May I have your attention, please? There has been - Doesn't make sense.
- What doesn't? Why start a fire? It only initiates hospital protocol, making it even harder to get inside.
[Cellphone vibrates.]
- Reddington.
- You're still at the hospital.
I told you, you need to get out now.
They're already inside.
Blow it.
- Get down! - [Explosion.]
Uh-huh Uh-huh [Continuous ringing tone, echoing footsteps.]
Ready? One, two, three.
- [Screams, clamoring.]
- [Gunfire.]
[Silenced gunshots.]
- Move, move, down! - Out, out.
Come on! - [Grunting.]
- Go! [Gunfire.]
Get Kirk out.
Go now.
- Drop your weapon.
Put it down.
- You put it down.
Drop Leave him.
We're only here for Masha.
- Liz! - Tom! - Liz.
- Tom! [Tom grunting.]
She cannot hear you, my friend! [Groaning.]
Are you saying something? I still cannot hear you! - [Grunts.]
- [Gunshot.]
[Coughing, gasping.]
Odette: Keep moving, keep moving.
Go, go, go.
Odette: Leave him.
Go now.
- [Siren wailing.]
- [Car alarm chirps.]
Hey, hey.
Give me the keys.
Give me the keys.
- Sorry.
- [Siren continues wailing.]
[Tires peal.]
Red: You've told me you've always wanted a pristine, unspoiled place to live out your days in peace.
So the acre is yours for all eternity.
- Raymond.
- [Gasps.]
Fever broke.
Think we beat that infection.
So, who's Raymond? He the one that shot you? Or the other guy? [Object clatters.]
Which one? I don't know why you're protecting these people.
Truth is, I don't care.
You're not leaving me a lot of options here, sweetheart.
Can't hold you prisoner forever.
So let me go.
This here is a squat.
Public land.
Rangers would run me off if they knew.
Nobody knows I'm here but you.
You don't trust me.
So how am I supposed to trust you with my whole world? This would've been a whole lot easier if you had been considerate enough to die on your own.
[Door opens.]
[Door closes.]
Ressler: We're 10 minutes out.
You got eyes on Kirk? Cooper: Aram's trying to locate the escape vehicle.
- Where are you on Dr.
Shaw? - Nowhere.
Reddington got to her.
If we're right and Shaw knows how to cure Kirk, Reddington has just made sure that's not going to happen.
Which means Liz is his only hope.
Kirk's not gonna hurt her as long as he needs her stem cells to survive.
But he doesn't.
The hospital ran DNA tests.
They're not related.
It was Kirk's men at the hospital.
- Did Elizabeth get out? - She was taken by Kirk.
Well, she'll be safe with him until Kirk's doctors confirm she's not his daughter, but we don't have much time.
We need to find patient zero.
How long, Dr.
Shaw? It might help if I knew what you needed the patient for.
My agenda has no bearing on your task.
You know what you're looking for.
I need it now.
I've treated hundreds of patients over the years.
This is going to take some time.
I'm out of time, Doctor, which means you're out of time.
Find the patient.
[Siren wailing.]
You're angry, and I accept that.
Tom better not be dead.
In time, you'll understand I did this to hold my family together.
He better not be dead.
The test Reddington falsified it.
He'll do anything to keep us apart.
We're approaching the switch site.
Medical teams are prepped and waiting.
Tom Keen, make sure he's not hurt.
- I'm not giving you my blood.
- You will help me, Masha, one way or another.
[Siren wailing.]
[Tires squeal.]
[Engine roaring.]
[Horns blare.]
[Phone rings.]
- Agent Mojtabai.
- Aram! I'm following Liz.
She's in an ambulance heading north on Bristoll.
Hang on! [Honk blares.]
- Aram, the ambulance.
- I'm tracking it now.
Agents Ressler and Navabi are closing in from the west.
I'm vectoring you in.
[Siren continues wailing.]
- Why are we slowing? - You can't stop You need to get to the switch car.
Hold on.
[Horn honking.]
[Tires screech.]
Everybody out! Let's go! [Gunfire.]
Out! Get out of the way! [Gunfire continues.]
[Tires peal.]
[Gun cocks.]
[Gun cocks.]
How's it going under there? My boss ordered me not to kill you, but he didn't say anything about messing up that pretty face.
- Whoo! - Okay, okay, okay.
[Tires squeal, Car doors open.]
[Footsteps approach.]
You owe me.
- [Gasps.]
- What are you doing? Can't keep you.
Can't kill you.
I was gonna cut you loose and pray you don't tell anybody I'm up here.
You could've left me in the woods.
No, I couldn't do that.
[Door closes.]
Police found the sedan abandoned under a bridge about a mile away.
- Where is this place? - That bridge was well chosen.
No surveillance cameras, a complete dead zone.
You had a switch vehicle stashed there.
You were supposed to be in it.
We need a make and tag number.
Where were they headed? Prisoners are legally guaranteed medical care.
And [Huffs.]
I've been shot.
- You were treated by paramedics.
- I need a doctor.
You are showing deliberate indifference to my injuries, and that is against the law.
So this where the bullet went in? [Inhales sharply.]
This building doesn't exist.
That means you're not here and you never were.
Where is Alexander Kirk? [Grunts.]
[Strained voice.]
They had a van waiting under the bridge.
[Inhales sharply.]
A silver panel van.
The safe house was 10 minutes away, but they hadn't told me where in case of something like this.
I don't believe you.
You're lying.
- I'm not! - Tell me.
I don't know where.
Keen was taken from the drop site in a silver panel van.
Safe house is less than 10 minutes away.
Contact Montgomery County Police.
Tell them to pull all surveillance from in and around that area local businesses, traffic cams.
I'll start a search for properties in the area associated with Kirk or his shell companies.
Knock on doors, interview street vendors.
Talk to anyone who might've seen that van.
Let's find Agent Keen.
- Tom: I talked to Ressler.
- Tell me everything.
They think they've nailed a location where she's being held, somewhere in Silver Spring.
- I think I found something.
- Hey.
Hello, did you hear me? I need to find her, and I need your help.
The FBI needs to find her.
We need to focus on keeping Elizabeth alive once they do.
What are you talking about? I'll call you on this number when I know more.
- [Cellphone closes.]
- I found patient zero.
Call Baz.
Tell him to get Dr.
Reifler here right away.
Go on.
Reddington, I was on the verge of patenting cutting-edge research that would've saved countless lives.
I had to restore my credentials as a doctor, and thanks to you, I've lost it all again.
Patient zero.
I need a name.
I want you to bankroll my work.
I want my future back.
My research is illegal, not immoral.
A distinction I'm comfortable drawing.
But human experimentation in the hull of a ship is a bit too Draconian even for me.
I need your word that you will not kill her.
Her name.
The HLA proteins aren't a match.
We're not meeting the criteria.
- You're a liar.
- I've reviewed the results three times.
How much did he pay you? How much did he pay you? Sir, please.
It it's not a match.
[Gun cocks.]
You look into my eyes and you tell me Elizabeth Keen is not my daughter.
She's not.
Reifler, I don't know about you, but I'm experiencing the strongest sense of déjà vu.
Why are you doing this? I've told you everything I know about Kirk, and I have been locked in a sweaty motel room - with your goons for weeks.
- Goons.
That that's not fair.
Well, Carlton is a bit goonish, but Matthew is actually quite erudite and a world-class chess player to boot.
In any case, there's someone I'd like to introduce you to.
Adrian Shaw, meet Dr.
Sebastian Reifler.
Reifler is a hematologist.
Shaw is a research scientist who worked with a patient you also treated, Lucille Bockes.
Lucille Bockes is dead.
Actually, she's not.
No, I-I put her into hospice care over four years ago.
I won't pretend to understand how it all works, but I must say, Dr.
Shaw really is something of a wizard.
Lucille responded to my treatment and went into full remission.
It's it's not possible.
- Lucille Bockes is alive and well - [Cellphone rings.]
and working as a prosecuting attorney.
It's Kirk.
She's not my daughter.
No, she's not.
And yet, she's here.
She's nothing to you.
A distant, confused memory.
I'm the one you want.
What I want is to put a bullet in your head before I die.
Then do that.
An even trade.
With the FBI wanting to ambush me the moment I give her up, I don't think so.
You set the terms.
However you want, I'll do it.
My life for hers.
Rollins Park.
20 minutes.
I'll send a car.
[Cellphone closes.]
We can find her.
There's no more time.
He'll kill you, no matter what you do or say.
You can't go.
It's Elizabeth.
[Elliott Smith's "Between the Bars" playing.]
If we can get the woman It's too late for her to save Elizabeth.
But perhaps she can save you.
The potential you'll be That you'll never see The promises you'll only make Drink up with me now And forget all about The pressure of days, do what I say And I'll make you okay and drive them away People you've been before that you Forgive me.
For Kate.
For everything.
And won't bend to your will Drink up, baby, look at the stars I'll kiss you again, between the bars Where I'm seeing you there With your hands in the air Waiting to finally be caught Drink up one more time - [Door closes.]
- And I'll make you mine Keep you apart The man you saw in the picture was my employer.
He lost his way.
At least, that's how I saw it.
And keep the things He placed a lovely young woman and her baby girl in terrible danger not deliberately, mind you.
He loves them deeply.
Enough to blind him to the reality that his very presence in their lives constitutes a threat.
Not just to them, but to himself as well.
I tried to help her.
All I managed to do was to place her and the child in even greater danger.
My efforts earned me a bullet in the head.
This man, he is very dangerous and absolutely relentless.
If he even suspects I survived, there will be no place I can be safe.
The reason I didn't tell you the truth was not to protect him, but to protect you.
It's a shame you have no crackers.
I'm not ready to die just yet.
He's arriving.
You shouldn't have come.
The ripe apple falls.
Doesn't know what else to do.
So here I am.
Time to let her go.
I bear Masha no grudges.
I promise her safe passage.
I understand now how you see me dangerous man dying, polluted by his money.
Let him go.
Love did it, if you can believe it.
It doesn't make much sense, but sometimes you can feel too much, hold on too long it poisons you.
I should have let go of you years ago, but you were my child.
I'm gonna be dead soon, and my biggest regret is that you will remember me like this and not the young father who cradled you in his arms.
A lifetime in front of us.
You want me to remember you that way? Let Reddington go.
Hold her for an hour.
Take her somewhere remote.
Leave her safe.
Safe, Odette.
I'll come for you.
I'll come for you.
You and I have much to talk about.
Excuse me, what are you doing? I locked my keys in the car, you believe it? Yeah, I stopped to get something and then never mind.
- You're blocking my car.
- Yeah, I took care of it.
There's a locksmith be here in 45 minutes.
I'm late for court.
This can't be happening! I called a, uh, car service.
Yeah, they're almost here.
So I'm gonna have my assistant come down and deal You can't just leave.
I am a lawyer.
I have a trial.
Why don't we do this? Why don't you just take my ride? That, uh, would be very helpful.
- Great.
- Thank you.
Sure, no problem.
Yeah, I'll just, um it's a black Town Car.
And, uh, the driver's name is unpronounceable.
Ha! I can't even say - Hey, you called for a ride? - Yes, thank you.
Would you be so kind as to drive this young woman wherever she would like to go? I'm going to the county courthouse.
Chestnut and Jefferson.
I'm not gonna hurt you.
I don't really know how we got here, Raymond.
I remember being an honest businessman in a happy marriage until you came along.
Constantin, I can save your life.
Seduced my wife.
To her credit, Katarina broke it off, - but you couldn't let go.
- I have a cure.
I came home one night and they were gone my wife, my child.
- My girl who's not even my girl.
- If you wanna live, call the number.
As you can imagine, I have many questions.
There's a science.
Some sort of genetics.
- It's called CRISPR.
- [Chuckles.]
Your magic bullet to save my life is some experimental treatment they're not even testing on humans.
CRISPR is not just experimental.
Gene re-sequencing may work someday, but I won't live that long.
There was a breakthrough 19 years ago by a scientist who was murdered.
His partner carried on his work on humans, not animals, with remarkable success.
I have a doctor who can apply that science today.
I can make her available to you.
And why would you save my life? Because I want you to save mine.
Call the number.
Because of my chronic illness, I've become something of an expert in pain management what causes it, and what prevents it.
Naturally occurring toxins, bacterial proteins, mutagens.
I'm confident Mr.
Kleeb can encourage you to answer some of my questions, Raymond.
As I said, I have many.
Now, let's start at the beginning.
We'll deliver them in one hour.
[Cellphone beeps.]
The meeting is set.
The same bus stop.
Just the doctor and Miss Bockes.
Where are you taking me? Just need a little blood work.
All right.
That was Aram.
No dice.
There's no business, no shell companies, nothing that links to Kirk.
Anything on that silver panel van? No, we gotta keep knocking.
We're never gonna find Kirk's safe house this way.
They've been driving a silver panel van.
You see anything like that around here today? No.
Who are they? Did anyone enter the club in the last hour or so? Sure, but I wouldn't have let them inside without a membership card.
You mind if we take a look around just in case? - [Cellphone rings.]
- No, fine with me.
Excuse me.
All right, I'm looking at CCTV feeds of a silver panel van that crossed through the intersection of Newmarket and Maiden less than five minutes ago.
Aram's got eyes on the van.
All right, talk to me.
[Beep, speed-dialing.]
- What is it? - Two cops asking questions.
They're gone now, but I can't say they won't be coming back.
[Cellphone beeps.]
I had proof that she was my daughter.
A DNA test.
You saw what Katarina wanted you to see.
She lied to you about everything.
KGB trained her to seduce foreign diplomats, intel intelligence personnel into believ revealing secrets.
You always thought I was the interloper.
The truth is that I was an assignment.
I'm I'm sure you were, too.
That's a lie.
A cover then.
You were wealthy and powerful.
[Breathes sharply.]
Gave her access.
All that matters is that we had a family, and you destroyed it.
We had a daughter, and you took her from us.
Why? If I dose him again, it could induce an Adrenergic storm.
We could lose him.
Are you her father? Are you her father? Answer me.
Odette: Let's go.
What good is killing me gonna do? It won't bring him back.
He's gonna die.
He can't be saved.
Well, he wouldn't need to be saved if it wasn't for you.
Come on.
Up, up.
He's dying because he's sick.
I'm not talking about his death.
That was inevitable.
I'm talking about who he's become because of his obsession with you.
He was a good man when I met him.
And then he saw you, a fugitive on television.
Finding you, that changed him.
He did things that I didn't think he was capable of.
Terrible things.
I blame you for that.
You're going to jail.
I'm not.
His heart rate is 122.
BP is 180 over 110.
We've made him tachycardic.
The antidote.
[Ragged breathing.]
Which I administer next is completely up to you.
So be it.
[Tires squeal.]
I don't know what this is.
I don't know why I'm here, but I am a district attorney and people will be looking for me.
- Who is she? - She is a miracle.
Lucille was a patient of mine.
Lucille Bockes.
That's not possible.
I know.
What trick are you playing? It's not a trick.
It's proof of concept.
CRISPR? It can save you.
If I let you go.
We both die or we both live.
It's up to you.
Run every test on her you can think of.
I don't believe in miracles.
You're telling me that Reddington was there with Kirk.
He traded himself for me.
They were in some kind of an underground parking lot? There were no signs, no markers.
They had my head covered going in and out.
Any idea how close it is? I'd say we drove 15, maybe 20 minutes.
10 mile radius to search.
We're right back to where we started.
No, we're not.
I have an idea.
[Phone rings.]
- Yeah.
- Aram, I have a question.
If the van Kirk's guys were using has a GPS system, could you use that to retrace where it's been? If the van has a telematics system, it may have a two-way link to a service provider that relays GPS data.
Okay, I'm standing at the van.
What do you need to make that happen? Maybe she's a miracle.
Maybe she's not a miracle.
Either way, you're gonna have to answer my question.
- No.
- You're not her father? No, I'm not gonna answer your question.
[Ragged breathing.]
It doesn't matter.
She lived at at your house as your daughter on and off for four years.
Sometimes you were there, sometimes you weren't.
What difference does it make? Are you her father? Sam Milhoan raised her after that.
Are you her father? It doesn't matter.
I can't.
If I inject him again I'm gonna ask you one more time.
Is Masha your daughter? [Breathing heavily.]
[Murmurs indistinctly.]
What do you want me to say? Yes [Murmurs indistinctly.]
Is that what you want me to say? Yes, Elizabeth is my daughter.
- It's true? - Yes.
I did a full work up.
Red: She's cured.
My proposition still stands.
- How? - What does it matter how? Dr.
Shaw saved my life.
Shaw is standing by in a fully assembled lab waiting for you.
I want everybody out.
Clear the area.
Miss Bockes, you're free to go.
All of you, go.
Out! [Tires squeal.]
So you can cure me.
How ironic.
You, of all people.
But if the price for my life is sharing the Earth with you, I'm gonna have to turn you down.
All right, stay on Hampden unless you cross 188, then take your next right.
Aram, we don't have time to retrace the entire route.
The site had an underground parking structure.
Does that help you filter the search? Yeah, well, it would, except that van covered over 40 miles of road today.
Aram, Keen said she was on the road for 15, maybe 20 minutes.
Can you narrow the route pattern to a specific window of time? Determine the speed and the number of stops.
The van made eight stops in the last 96 minutes.
An apartment complex in Friendship Heights, a gym in Bethesda, - what looks like a strip mall - Wait, wait.
Did you say gym? Uh, right.
Bodhi Fitness.
That's the place.
Since we have a history together, I'll give you the choice.
Would you prefer to suffocate or to have a heart attack? You're not gonna kill me.
And why is that? Because that means I'll die, too? Dying isn't so bad.
I did it once in Marrakesh.
You talk too much.
Perhaps I should listen more.
Tell me about Katarina.
And why would I do that? Because we both miss her.
Because after all these years I have forgotten what she was really like.
You remember what she did, and not who she was.
Remind me.
When when we when we first met, there was this house near where she lived, a case study house built by this famous mid-century architect.
Over dinner one night, she said she wanted to look at it.
I thought she meant look from the street.
But when we got there, she jumped the fence.
The lights were on.
People lived there.
She didn't care.
I stood there frozen, angry, nervous.
Then I felt this rush of exhilaration.
I climbed up, looked into the yard and she was just Dancing.
I'd never seen anything like it.
She had A joy for living.
She was more alive than anyone I knew.
When I heard she killed herself I didn't believe it.
I still don't.
You're wrong.
I didn't see what she wanted me to see of her, I saw her.
And despite what happened, I know she loved me.
You don't have to do this.
Raymond, there's nothing in this world you can tell me to change my mind.
[Whispering indistinctly.]
Beck: See the sleet - That rests upon - [Breathing unevenly.]
The quiet street we're standing on Is it time to go away And try again some other day? 'Cause these are words we use To say goodbye Bones crack, curtains drawn On my back and she is gone Somewhere else I do not know Time will tell and I will go - These are the words - Cooper: Reddington did what? Ressler: We thought he kidnapped Dr.
Shaw in order to make sure that Kirk died.
But the truth is, he kidnapped her hoping to keep Kirk alive.
The data recovered from Kirk's lab indicates that Reddington was trying to prove to Kirk that Shaw could save him.
Why the hell would he do that? Why does Reddington do any of the things he does? - And where's Kirk? - We don't know.
We're sure as hell gonna find out.
[Wood thuds.]
I will wait and take a turn - [Blows air.]
- Sort it out Let it burn Empty out empty drawer In my pockets, there's nothing more These are the words you use To say goodbye - These are the words - [Knock on door.]
We use So it worked? Yes.
I'll take that as a thank you.
[Door closes.]
Oh, my God.
How did you Kirk? - Gone.
- Dead? Gone.
I don't I don't understand.
How did you It's over.
- May I? - Mm.
Come here.
Come here.
Here you go.
[Both laugh.]
You know, I really believed he was my father.
You had every reason to.
Except for one.
You told me my father died when I was a little girl.
I just I guess I didn't want to believe it.
I really wanted my dad here to see her grow up.
He would've wanted that, too.
