The Oath (2018) s02e08 Episode Script


I'm done, man.
Good people are dead, because all we do is stick our hands out for payoffs from hood rats! Dani's got a good home.
A loving home.
But she's still more fit to care for Dani than strangers the court's gonna stick her with.
Why are the Colombians here? We're getting into the dope business? If the money's right, why not? We need to get Ignacio back in custody.
Find out where he's at, and tell me.
Get down on the ground now! If they don't all go to jail, we'll be lookin' over shoulders for the rest of our lives.
Victor knows enough to take 'em all down.
You don't have to talk, but I suggest you listen.
Victor's gonna testify against the cartel.
- Where are Lourdes and Veronica? - They're in WITSEC.
Witness protection! Why'd you give 'em up without talking to me?! When can you bring Victor to me? If I can bring him to you, I want assurances.
No other retaliation on my family.
You have our word.
You made a stupid choice that put my family in danger.
I'm doin' this for my daughter.
So was I.
I couldn't do it.
I wanted to, but I couldn't do it.
How bad is it? Karen, there's something you should know.
The cartel's gunning for us.
- I already talked to Ramos.
- I'm sorry.
Steve Anyone notify her mother? - I'll do it.
- Listen.
Can't just sit around feelin' sorry for ourselves.
This was the cartel's opening shot.
They're gonna be comin' after all of us.
We've always told each other the truth.
But what I have to say is gonna hurt.
Not now.
You don't have to listen, but I'm gonna say it.
This ain't about the cartel, is it? It's about us.
- We brought this shit on ourselves.
- Seriously? Hm? You want to get on your soapbox right now? Like I said, you don't have to hear it, but it needs to be said.
Not now it doesn't.
Man, shit ain't gonna change around here until we do.
Get your head in the game or you're next.
I'm gonna go get my sister somewhere safe.
- You OK? - Go.
Do what you have to do.
Listen up! We just lost lost another one of ours.
The cartel's at war with the Ravens, and there's nothin' we can do about it.
So keep your shit tight.
Doesn't feel right.
Just waitin' around for them to make a move.
Have we got a location on 'em? No.
I know you two were close.
I'm sorry.
I really am.
- Are ya? - I am.
She was a good kid.
But right now, you're not thinkin' straight.
You need to step back and let me take it from here.
You wanna run this again? Leadership is about the good of the group.
This is what they want.
Everything I do is for this club.
No, it isn't.
The bank job, that was about a lawyer for Tom.
And the cartel relationship was about the gun they were leveraging you with.
I'm not gonna step aside.
'Cause I can still get us out of this mess.
And what if you don't? - To Beach! - Beach.
Police are still looking for what is believed to be a lone gunman in the fatal shooting of an off-duty police officer in the 4000 block of Redwood Avenue last night.
The officer, identified as Karen Beach, was talking on her phone while leaving a restaurant around 10:00 p.
, when she was ambushed and shot multiple times.
This is the second shooting of a police officer in the last six months and comes on the heels of a news report claiming the police department is infested with corrupt cop gangs.
The department is saying there are currently no leads and is asking the public for any information from anyone in the area at that It happened quick.
She didn't suffer.
She didn't, huh? Were you there? No.
Were there any witnesses? No.
Then how the fuck can you know that? Listen, I know that you're upset.
There's nothing that I can say to make this feeling go away, but just know that we're here for you.
We're gonna take care of the funeral arrangements.
I'll let you know when and where.
It's my daughter.
She's my daughter, I wanna be involved.
Karen would have wanted it that way.
Look, I'm sorry, ma'am, I I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
Look, come here, come here, come here, come here.
Look, I'm sorry.
OK? It's only for a week or two, OK? I promise.
This is all my fault.
I'm sorry.
- No, it's not.
- It is.
Look, this has nothin' to do with you.
Listen to me.
What you did wasn't wrong, OK? What happened, happened because I did something bad.
None of this is your fault.
You understand? There's nothing you need to apologize for.
- Not to me, not to nobody.
- I'm scared.
I don't even know this lady, and I don't want to lose you again.
You're not gonna lose me.
Come here.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
Go on.
- Just came to pay my respects.
- She's pretty torn up, man.
She just wanna have a say in the ceremony.
- Burn or bury? - Doesn't care either way.
She just wants us all to be in uniform.
Show some respect for what her daughter stood for, ya know? You think Beach would have wanted that? I think Beach tried real hard to show that she didn't give a damn about anything, man.
But, yeah I think she'd want it formal.
Look, I'm sorry about your family.
- Yeah, but your brother ain't.
- But he is.
And you know it.
At least they're safe, right? Says who? You think WITSEC can't be cracked? If anything happens to my daughter, it's on Steve.
No! It's on all of us, Pete! We fucked up the second we chose this life, brother.
And you know that shit.
How'd it go with Beach's mother? As good as something like that can go.
Close the door.
I wanna talk.
Why? I'm pretty sure I made it clear where I stand on all this, Steve.
I know you're hurtin' right now, brother, I know it.
But you need to put all of that aside and focus on us.
Because right now it's about survival.
So fuck everything else.
Our mother Amber Pastor Greg, and now Beach.
This is our sins comin' back on us.
We need to atone, brother.
And the only way we can do that is if we walk a different path.
That's what I've been tryin' to do.
It's always one more job with you.
One more push before we end it.
Do you even see that? You have no idea where all this ends, do you, brother? It ends badly.
Is that what you want to hear? - What's up with you? - Nothin'.
Why'd you turn your head like that? I didn't.
You feel like you made a mistake? N-No.
We fucked.
It happens.
Get over it.
- Yeah, twice.
- So what? What, you don't love me? Don't wanna spend the rest of your life with me? - Look, I know how women can be.
- Obviously not.
I had an itch, and you scratched it.
You weren't the first and you won't be the last.
So get over yourself.
Yeah, yeah.
- Another time.
- Hey, I just talked to Tom.
Yeah, whatever he has to say, keep it to yourself.
He can get you papers.
Some cash.
I'm not runnin', Carl.
That's somethin' he would do.
I got us in, I'll get us out.
You got anything sharp in your pockets, you tell us now.
Because she gets stuck with a needle, I'm gonna crack your head wide open, you feel me? What is this? Nothing.
Ain't nothin'.
I put my hand in there, it comes back with some shit on the other end, I'm gonna be pissed.
It's toilet paper.
Used or fresh? Both.
Start walkin'.
And if I get one more call for you, you're goin' to jail.
You understand me? Get on.
You get your sister somewhere safe? She's with a family friend.
All that matters now is gettin' those assholes that did Beach.
Really? Revenge, that's all that matters? She was one of us.
You don't even know yet what bein' one of us actually is.
Just because you're havin' a fuckin' identity crisis don't mean you gotta put it on me.
I know exactly what this life is about.
And I'm good with it.
Wanna hear my side of this? Nope.
We got company.
- What, Feds? - Yeah.
They got a case.
Why are they following us? Shit! - Down! Down! Down! - Shit! Aaah! Jump out man! Go! Go! - Cover me! - Go, go, go, go! Reload! Cover! - Shit! - Go! Go! - I got a shot! - No! Don't kill him! Ah, shit! Let's get the cleanup crew to collect these shells.
And get the pedestrians back, please.
- You lost him.
- Where's his partner? He ditched the Jeep and bailed on foot before we caught up.
- Shit! - We were fuckin' bait, huh? Is that it? You touch me one more time, I'm gonna put you in a hole so deep you'll never get out.
Oh, so if we got killed, fuck it, huh?! You both put yourselves in this position.
Not us! Arrest us, or stay the fuck out of our way! Better hope he's still here.
Just keep an eye out.
Turn him over.
- What's wrong? - I want to make a deal.
- Hammond? - I have your friend.
So if you're as smart as I think you are, you know what happens next.
- Don't hurt him.
- If you want to see him again, meet me in 20 minutes.
Come on.
Huh? You might as well send us both to jail, because if I give you the address, we're both as good as dead.
Jail's not on the table.
You tell us or we kill you right here! You're not gonna do jackshit Motherfucker! Next one goes in his head! Where are they?! Better hope this isn't a dry run again.
Trust me, I want this prick as badly as you do.
Making entry now.
Target area is secure.
Fanning out.
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
But where the hell's his sister? - Son of a bitch.
- Can we get a medic over here?! Whether he lives or dies he's done.
- So what now? - We find and arrest Carmen.
Between Victor's testimony and yours, should have a strong enough case.
And what if she makes it back to Colombia? It's gonna take years to extradite her.
Doesn't change things for you.
You got a short time to get your house in order.
And remember, if you run, the rest of your people are goin' down as well.
Hmm? Huh? - Mami! No! - Sofia, no! No! Sofia! Sofia! Sofia! Carmen.
Did you say goodbye to the others? - No.
- Hold up.
Hold up.
I know you told me to keep my nose out of this but I can have Christine waiting in a car out back in less than five.
Do the smart thing, brother.
Take off.
If I run, it brings grief on the rest of you.
I've already done too much of that.
Take care of yourself.
Why are you here? Came to say goodbye.
Your brother know yet? Not yet.
How ya holdin' up? I'm OK.
It is what it is, right? Karen's funeral's next week.
Make sure we're represented.
Will do.
What I'm doin' here gives everyone a clean slate.
Use it to get out of this life.
We got a problem.
What kind of problem? Victor turned out to be more cooperative than any of us anticipated.
Part of his information dump concerns the Ravens, so now the A-USA want more than just you.
Andrews, we had an agreement.
I explained that.
When I made you the offer, I was planning on leaving the Ravens out of the indictment.
Son of a bitch.
- Get a good lawyer and fight this.
Hold on.
You think he could beat this? With Victor's testimony, probably not.
What if I testify against the cartel? Stay out of this, Ramos.
If I go into WITSEC with my family, and I testify against the cartel would that be enough to make the A-USA leave the rest of the Ravens alone? Yeah, probably.
You don't have to do this.
I know.
I want to.
You're really just gonna walk away from this? From Steve? I already have.
And you should too.
Nothing good has ever come of this life.
Things are bad right now but it doesn't mean that it's gonna stay this way.
Well, I'm goin' to Carl's tonight to say what needs to be said.
And I just hope some of 'em The ones who ain't brainwashed, like you listen.
Just give us a minute here, will you? Visiting hours are over.
I just wanted to let you know that Ramos is safely with his family.
What about the rest of my guys? You gonna look after 'em? Won't need to.
Ignacio and Ricardo won't be an issue.
What about Carmen? According to my sources, she's back in Colombia.
And after what her brother did that's probably a bad move on her part.
Shut that shit down, I got somethin' to say.
Shut it down.
I'm here to speak my piece, then I'm gonna leave.
Here we go.
You see that? It's people like Kraley you need to start ignoring.
And people like my dad.
And my brother.
We need to atone, brother.
This is our sins comin' back on us.
You better fuckin' fix this, or I'll never see my daughter again! They were all a part of the problem! And so was I.
But not anymore.
Hallelujah to that.
You always have a choice.
You just keep making the wrong ones.
When we first got into this thing we were like a family.
Tell me something, Kraley.
How do you think this ends, huh?
