It's four in the morning The end of December I'm writing you now just to see if you're better New York is cold, but I - [WINGS FLUTTER.]
- Like where I'm living There's music on Clinton Street - All through the evening - [DOOR OPENS.]
- Hi.
I know, I know.
And you treated my woman To a flake of your life And when she came back She was nobody's wife Well, I see you there With the rose in your teeth One more thin gypsy thief Well, I see Jane's awake [WATER RUNNING, FAUCET TURNS OFF.]
She sends her regards Ah, the last time we saw you [GARBAGE DISPOSAL WHIRS.]
- You looked so much older [GENERATOR STARTS.]
Still have an L14-20 male plug? I saw one here last week.
On your left, by the timing belt.
Genny out again? Oh, Early, if anything worked up at that place, I'd get bored.
Storm's coming.
Did you see the weather? - Yeah, they say ice.
- It's early for ice.
Leaves are still on the trees, but that's what they say.
Few inches.
You get that VHF radio working? It's on my to-do list.
Stay warm.
Stay warm, Grace.
NGUYEN: Focus now.
Push yourself.
It feels like glass under my skin.
I can't.
Well, that shoulder spent 10 months in a coma, same as you, without rehab.
It's unstable.
Trust me, pain is good.
Pain says your body's still working.
I just want out of the chair.
We'll get you there, but this is gonna take a while.
Surprise delivery.
It was orphaned at the post office.
Mary said it had been there over a week, and thought maybe you forgot about it.
That's sweet.
You didn't have to drive out here in this weather.
Believe me, I know that.
Colder than an Alaskan outhouse right now.
Oh, I'm sorry, Colin.
Come on in.
You headed to the station? Yep.
Boss wants someone on site.
Hey, Kate! They say we're supposed to get some ice tonight.
I wasn't here for the storm back in '03, but they were without power in town for nine days.
I'll send you with some coffee.
If you ever wanted to come along sometime, I'd be happy to give you a tour.
That sounds nice.
Maybe when the weather passes.
Yeah, yeah, sure.
That's what I meant.
When you gonna unpack? Oh, pbht.
I'm sure I'll get around to it sooner or later.
Happy to help if you want.
I'll let you know.
Be careful out there.
Okay, then.
- Bye, Kate.
Hey, you.
I'm not doing very well.
I told myself I wasn't gonna tell you that.
That's the last thing you need to hear, right? [SNIFFLES.]
I'm thinking about going away.
MAN: getting the hell out of here.
Temperature is 20 degrees.

Contact park entrance is Open the fire road is alt.

Hello? [STATIC.]
MAN: ochin' holadna vetir maroz skvernaia pagoda [RADIO CLICKS.]
Can anyone read me? Is anyone hearing this? Hello? [STATIC.]
Oh, come on.
and Karakurt popped out of the trunk.
Tom had brought him to my doorstep.
I should've been livid, but he was And I'll deny ever admitting this he was pretty damn charming about the whole thing.
You remember that cabin? Oh, that cabin.
Mattias Solomon, a few thousand rounds of ammo later, I finally got my hearing back.
Keen was good in the field, though.
Well, to Tom.
- To Tom.
- To Tom.
- To Tom.
WOMAN: Stay tuned to this channel for all updates.
To repeat, this is radio KAKF Alaska issuing weather warnings for the following boroughs - Bethel, Denali - Colin? Fairbanks North Star, Matanuska-Susitna.
2 to 4 inches of ice accumulation have been reported.
A total power outage of Southeast Fairbanks has been reported.
- The fol - [RADIO SHUTS OFF.]
I need you to promise me something.
Of course.
The Blacklist.
I need you to promise me you'll keep working on it with the Task Force.
Doesn't work without you.
It has to.
I think we've done enough.
What you've done [SIGHS.]
What you've made it possible for the Task Force to do You know, I've never thanked you for that.
Why you do it, what you get out of it at the end of the day, it doesn't matter.
But I need you to promise me you're gonna keep doing it.
I promise.
Thank you.
I have one more favor to ask you.
And it's not gonna be easy for you, but it's important to me.
I don't want you to follow me.
You're gonna let go.
Can you do that? What about Agnes? [WIND HOWLING.]
What the hell is going on here? Whoa.
Take it easy, lady.
Who the hell are you people? Sorry if we scared you, I just I don't know if we'd have laste much longer out there in that wind.
You said your plane went down? Uh, no, not my plane.
Ellis read about these, uh, fishing trips outta Lake Hood.
I mean, seemed like a good idea at the time.
Always does, right? You know, floatplanes, campfires, big sky.
We hit weather.
What we hit was ice.
BILLY: Yeah, I could, uh, see it freezing up on the wing.
Couple inches.
Before we knew it, it started breaking off.
Sounded like a damn hammer hitting that plane.
Bam, bam, bam.
Yeah, yeah, it must have busted something 'cause last thing I know, the pilot was saying he lost an engine.
And you went down where? A mile back, maybe two.
I didn't hear anything.
Hell, it was further than that.
BILLY: I-It must have been 6, uh, 10 miles.
I-I don't know, the weather, we got turned around.
And you were all able to just walk away? Well, we got lucky.
The pilot Is he the guy in the other room? Yeah, no.
Pilot didn't, uh didn't make it, we had to leave him.
Mike the guy in your bedroom was cut up pretty bad on the way down.
He knew he was bleeding, but he didn't want to wait for help, so he started walking.
Dumb son of a bitch.
We couldn't talk sense into him.
ORSON: Temperature dropped.
Thought we were gonna die out there, so So, we just started walking.
We never found Mike, but we saw the smoke from your chimney.
No lights, no locks We thought the place was empty.
He was out when I found him.
How'd you find him? Actually, he found me.
Is he gonna be okay? Not if we don't get him to a hospital.
I closed up his wounds, but he's bleeding internally.
You can tell by his breathing.
There's blood in his airways.
He's got a few hours, maybe.
What about the roads? Good luck out there.
It's an ice rink.
Block's frozen on my truck.
Even if I had a phone, the lines are down.
Look, bottom line is, we got to get your friend out of here fast, and I have no idea how.
We had these to stay in touch on the trip.
You know, maybe we could These are short range.
Good if we want to talk to each other, but useless if we wanna call for help.
I never asked your name.
It's Grace.
That's nice.
You're bleeding.
So, what's your story, anyway? Up here, all alone.
You know the story a girl in a cabin with a gun and a dog.
I don't think I've heard that one.
I'll tell it to you sometime when you don't have a needle sticking out of your arm.
Trust me, it's not that interesting.
Well, I doubt that.
I don't know many peop people who, uh, could diagnose internal bleeding by the sound of somebody's breathing.
You a doctor or something? Turn this way.
Come on.
There has to be a halfway decent story.
No Mr.
Mysterious? Out there on his way home right now? There was once.
Didn't work out.
I don't know who killed Tom or why.
But I saw them.
And so they might come after me, and if they did, and anything should happen to Agnes Liz, I told you you don't have to explain that to me.
This is hardest thing I've ever done.
I'm just so angry, and she knows it.
And I can't make it go away.
Agnes will be fine.
And what about you? What about the pain you're feeling, the anger? Can you protect her from that? I spent 30 years mourning Tom's loss.
Where you are now I was there the day he disappeared from that beach when he was a little boy.
Yes, I'm sad and angry.
But Tom coming back to me after all these years was a gift.
He loved you very much.
It couldn't have been easy for him.
Testifying for me against his father.
But he didn't hesitate.
The boy I'd given up for dead came back to life to save me.
And to give me his beautiful baby girl, who I'm gonna spoil rotten.
She loves Cheerios, and Thomas the Train in the morning.
And she gets so cranky if she's hot at night, so just a light blanket.
She's gonna be fine.
- She is.
- Okay.
I'm gonna take good care of her.
She'll be healthy and happy.
And when you are and that will happen you'll take her back.
Grace? Huh? I said, "What's the diagnosis?" I think you might live.
Ah, good.
I need to go check the radio.
There's a There's a radio? An old one in the barn.
Used for calling in weather reports.
It hasn't worked in years, but if I could get it running Well, uh, you want a hand? I'll I'll help.
I'm a big girl.
If anyone can hear me, acknowledge this transmission.
Copy? [STATIC.]
What do you think of these guys, huh? Yeah, I'm not buying it, either.
COLIN: Oh, there you are.
I got your note, came as soon as I could.
The cavalry showed up.
What's going on? Like they said, there's been an accident.
I know what they said.
Where were you fellas flying out of? Lake Hood.
Fishing charter.
Yeah, we are lucky to be alive.
Our friend Mike, in the bedroom, he's not so lucky.
We got to get him to a doctor.
The roads are impossible.
It's only getting worse.
Radio's down at the station.
I had to walk here.
There's a radio on the plane.
Ah, tried that.
Didn't work.
Well, if we could get it to work, or at least get the locator working on the black box, then Search & Rescue could get a Snowcat down here and medevac your friend out.
I can help.
I have a decent sense of direction.
I can get us back to that wreckage, I know it.
What about you? You gonna be okay here? No, I'm not okay.
There's a stranger bleeding to death in my bed and you could use me out there.
Yeah, but if you go, who looks after Mike? 'Cause I can't.
Please, don't make me tell his wife he died on my watch.
Hey, I got a question for you.
These guys, their story anything seem off to you? What do you mean "off"? They walked 10 miles in this weather? From a crash I never heard.
Don't be silly.
Not a broken bone on one of them.
I think I should go with you.
You're being paranoid.
Come on.
Everything will be fine.
We'll be back before you know it.
- It's all right.
You're gonna be okay.
We're gonna get you some help.
Your friends are in the other room.
Not friends.
Then who the hell are they? Th-They'll kill you, too.
Ratted Carlucci family.
The Carlucci crime family? What are you doing up here? Witness protection.
WitSec dumped you up here, but your old friends found you just the same.
Please th-they'll kill me.
How are we gonna get you out of here? They'll kill you, too.
Everything okay in here? Yeah.
He's good.
He'll push through a few more hours.
He's a fighter.
That crash I never thought our little hunting adventure would turn out like this.
Hunting? I thought you said you were fishing? - What? - [GLASS SHATTERS.]
Oh, damn it.
- Sorry.
- Here, let me help.
No, no.
You stay put.
There's glass everywhere.
Get your damn feet off the table, man.
Show some respect.
Seriously? [CLEARS THROAT.]
What? What I wanted to hunt bears.
I had, uh grand vision of bagging a grizzly.
Orson and the others, they wanted to fish.
We were gonna split up the trip.
They didn't get their fish, I didn't get my bear.
You know it's illegal to hunt bears.
What's the matter you never broke a rule or two? You done with that? I guess.
Why do you still wear your ring? Excuse me? Wedding ring on your finger.
My husband gave it to me.
I thought you said that didn't work out.
What happened? [UTENSILS CLATTER.]
I lost him.
That's why you're up here in the middle of nowhere with a bunch of unpacked boxes.
Just a lady and her dog and a gun.
Where is Kate? Who? Kate, my dog.
You were right about that weather.
I was not dressed warm enough.
Where's Colin? We got about a mile down the trail, bumped into another ranger on a three-wheeler.
He only had room for one, so they headed back to town, said they'd call for help.
Told me to get back here before I froze.
Have you seen my dog? What? No.
Kate? Kate? ELLIS: You sure she's not in the barn? Maybe she got spooked with the storm and all.
Think I'll brave the weather.
She's probably outside.
The hell was that? Damn generator.
It happens all the time.
So what do we do? You do nothing.
I'm gonna go fix it.
It's bad out.
You'll need help.
You know the one that I have learned all my time out here alone? What's that? Men just get in my way.
I'll be right back.
You've entrusted Agnes to Scottie Hargrave? Yes.
To Tom's mother.
Who ordered a hit on your wedding.
She didn't know who we were.
She's a good person, and she'll keep Agnes safe.
Look, I know you took care of her while I was in the hospital, and I can't thank you enough for that, but this is my decision.
And I need you to respect that.
Okay, I will.
I want you to promise me something.
What? That you'll grieve.
Of course I'll grieve.
What is this that you think I'm doing? I think you're running away from your problems when you should be facing them.
I'm sure it feels like you're staring into an abyss, but until you mourn, you won't be able to cross it.
What's so great about crossing it? What's on the other side? Peace? Tranquility? Some.
I prefer revenge.
- That's what I'm afraid of.
- Really? 'Cause imagining what I'm gonna do to Tom's killers it's the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning.
Don't just go off and hide in the dark.
Wherever you go, look for some light.
Hey, Billy, you there? [ICE CRUNCHING.]
Grace? What's going on out there? [COUGHS.]
Why haven't the lights come back? Because you killed my dog and you killed my friend Colin.
Don't make this any harder than it has to be.
We haven't killed you yet.
And I haven't killed you yet.
I know that man in my room is not your friend, just like there was no plane crash.
- Car accident, actually.
Trying to get out of this weather.
Our trunk popped open.
Damn cargo ran off into the woods.
We chased the son of a bitch for hours.
I'm not leaving here without him.
Why not just kill him? Why not kill me? We needed you to keep him breathing.
Boss wants him back alive so he can tell us what he told the Feds.
Only then can he die.
That's my specialty.
And now you can, too.
That's a nasty habit you've got there.
I noticed.
Enough, you're one woman in the middle of a storm against the four of us.
It doesn't end well for you, Grace.
What's that, Billy? Billy, you okay? That's a stupid question.
You're not okay because my name's not Grace.
It's Elizabeth.
You wanted to know about my past? I was an FBI agent.
- A profiler.
And I smelled you out the minute you walked in my door.
That's why I froze broken glass into those ice cubes you love to chew.
So now every time you breathe, you're inhaling those little shards deeper into your throat and lungs.
You're dead.
No, Bill.
For the first time, I'm feeling pretty alive.
So if you want to come for me, you better come ready for a fight, because you know what the four of you against me in the woods is gonna be? Practice.
- BILLY: She's one person.
- She was an FBI agent.
- She's alone.
- She fed you glass.
It was her.
How? She's not even in here.
She drugged him.
- She drugged the food.
- With what? Does it matter? It worked.
What are we gonna do? [COUGHS.]
You remember that money launderer down in Palmdale squatting in that shack? [COUGHS.]
He was dug in like a tick.
Same thing here.
We surround her and we tighten the noose.
ORSON: What the hell? What's going on? - Fi-Field, get over here! - Get this thing off me! - Come on.
- Got it.
- Grab that.
Grab that side.
- Now pull! [GRUNTS.]
She can't get far.
Whole damn mountain's frozen solid.
Guys, we got a problem.
Even better.
Now she's got cargo.
She'll be twice as slow.
It's okay.
We're gonna get you out of here.
We're gonna get you some help.
From one professional to another, you're pretty good.
I told my guys tonight'd be easy.
Hunker down, wait out the storm, lie to the lady.
- You can apologize to them soon.
But you're all out of tricks now.
You're all out of traps.
I promised them I'd kill you.
It's over.
- There's nowhere left to run.
- Who's running? I told you I'm here to fight.
I like digging holes and hiding things inside them When I grow old, I hope I won't forget to find them 'Cause I've got memories And travel like gypsies in the night MCKENNA: I don't know how to explain any of this The carnage, the death.
I built a home and wait for someone to tear it down I mean, what happened up there at that house - Then pack it up in boxes - it's bizarre.
- Head for the next town running - We have bodies, men murdered - 'Cause I've got memories - drugged, burned alive all known criminals with extensive records.
And the woman, the one we believe is responsible And a thousand times I've seen this road you have no idea who she was? EARLY: Grace.
Nice woman, kind of quiet.
- A thousand times - Kept to herself.
- I've got no roots - Paid cash.
Did this Grace have a last name? Talbot.
At least that's how it said it on the side of the packages.
Which she picked up here? Sure.
One every few weeks.
Now and then, off and on.
I mean, she didn't get none too excited about it, but she got them all eventually.
And you have no idea where those packages went? At the house, I suppose.
Are they not there? Let's pivot.
I'd like to talk about Mr.
The federal witness? He said he was dropped off at the ER.
"like a Christmas gift.
" That's right.
I mean, that's what the head nurse said.
Left him there on the doorstep of the medical center in Delta Junction.
- Said she saved his life.
- She knew he was someone important.
I don't know how, but You know this woman didn't just wander off.
She made sure not to leave any trace evidence behind.
Not a Kleenex in the trash or a fingerprint in the barn or a hair in a drain.
- Not one.
- Place was wiped clean.
So clean, in fact, that we believe she may have learned how to clean a crime scene from a professional.
I don't understand the question.
You saw her.
You spoke to her.
You tell me who you think she was.
I don't know.
I wish I could say.
I think, uh, she was A ghost.
Life's full of 'em.
And a thousand times I've seen this road A thousand times I've got no roots I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground I've got no roots I've got no roots I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground I've got no roots - I've got no - [KNOCK ON DOOR.]
Please, come in.
You look strong.
I'm healed.
I want to thank you.
What for? For honoring your promise.
I know it wasn't easy for you.
It was what you wanted.
I also want to apologize.
Why? I couldn't honor mine.
I tried.
I really did.
I didn't go looking for trouble.
But it found me.
And I'm glad it did.
What happened? I killed some men.
Doesn't matter that they were bad.
That it was them or me.
What matters is that I did it and I was good at it.
And I didn't lose any sleep over it.
You will.
One of these nights you will.
It's just a matter of when.
After I've crossed the abyss.
But from the side I'm on now, all that matters is that I'm healed and I'm back.
And I'm coming for Tom's killers.
Like I said, I couldn't keep my promise.
Can you forgive me? Yes.
Will you be able to forgive yourself?
