The Protector (2018) s01e06 Episode Script

Episode 6

Good morning.
Malaria virus, which is very rare in Turkey, spreads fast in just a week all across Istanbul.
Paramedics are in action.
Do you always wake up that early? The sun is just rising.
Actually, I'm late.
Hospitals in Beyoğlu are full, and Tarlabaşı is quarantined.
Erdem once said that Istanbul is out of joint.
He's right.
Look at this.
We don't know what will happen next.
There's been no such case in Istanbul for ages.
Paramedics are shocked.
Research is in progress about how malaria reached Istanbul I have to take a shower.
I have a meeting in two hours.
Can't you stay a little longer? Well I can't.
Let's talk to the neighborhood residents and hear the situation from them.
Hospitals are full.
My wife went back to our village.
I'll go back there, too.
Istanbul is no good for anybody.
Public authorities started applying insecticides in some neighborhoods so as to kill the mosquitos that spread the disease.
Malaria virus spreads fast in just a week all across Istanbul.
Paramedics are in action.
Thank you.
How was he the last time you saw him? He was a mess.
Don't worry.
Hakan will be OK.
Trust the Protector.
I can't because Hakan is the Protector.
So, any news? No.
I'm worried that something bad will happen to him.
Oh! He turned on his phone.
Of course.
Where else could he be when Istanbul is in this mess? What do you mean? He works there.
It's six in the morning.
His shift hasn't started.
Do you think he thought, "I'm so upset, I'll get myself a suit"? He must have been with Leyla.
Who is Leyla? The girl Hakan goes after instead of finding the Immortal.
But we don't know what happened yet.
All right.
Let me go get him, so he'll tell us what happened.
- We were worried sick - You stay here, Zeynep.
Emir, go and get Hakan.
- Why do I stay? - You and I will do something else.
You told me to let you know regardless of time.
They found it last night.
I told them not to open it before you see it.
Don't call the archaeologists.
You have never found this room.
You understand me? Now go upstairs, don't let anyone down here.
- What are you doing here? - I came here to get you.
We were worried about you last night.
I needed some time alone.
I had to get my head together.
- Did you drive here? - No.
I took the bus.
Do you want to have breakfast? I have to go to the cistern and get my suit before my shift.
- Are you hungry? - I'm starving.
And we can have a chin-wag.
All right.
I'll take you somewhere.
Have a good day.
- Thank you.
- Thanks.
- Didn't you sleep last night? - No.
We stayed up.
We were worried about you.
When I was a child I would do anything to be the Protector.
Why? It's a holy duty.
Stop saying the words you are taught.
Be honest.
Why? Maybe my dad would be proud of me.
You need to be proud of yourself first.
I would be proud of myself if I were you.
You're the Protector, man.
You are going to save Istanbul.
I lost my whole family.
Why would I care if I saved Istanbul? My dad says, "We have two families.
The one we can choose and the one we can't.
" So? I mean we're always here.
I wish you were the Protector.
- Would you like pomegranate juice? - Sure.
Two pomegranate juice.
- Let go of me! What are you doing? - Get out.
Let me go! You need an appointment to see Mr.
Let go of me! Can't you get me out of the front door? - Get out! - Who the hell are you? LITHIUM CARBONATE Breathe.
Control your rage.
What's wrong? Tell me.
He got a job there so as to get information about Mazhar.
Now he's stuck in there because of a girl.
They say love is blind.
Yeah! Let's call it hormonal overdose.
There's something else.
We always wait for the Protector to act.
We always play the second fiddle.
I'm sick of waiting and waiting.
Go on then instead of talking.
Come on.
Good job.
Very good.
You say we need to find the stone in order to be 100 percent sure.
Then let's do something! Will you say something, Dad? You know what I will say.
Focus on the solution, not the problem.
Where are you going? I'll accept Faysal's job offer.
So I can be close to Mazhar.
I'll collect information.
Hakan might not care about his job, but I'm not like him.
Don't worry.
I'll be careful.
I wasn't going to say that.
I'm proud of you.
Can I get a lighter? Thanks.
You shouldn't trouble yourself.
- Here you go.
- Keep it.
What's up, handsome? Remember me? I'm Yasin.
Yasin Karakaya, the journalist.
We met at the party.
I remember you.
How are you? - Good.
You? - We're having breakfast.
Who's your friend? Is he from the security? Can he give us a minute? It's private.
I said we're having breakfast.
Emir is my cousin.
He can stay.
I love this quote of Balzac: "Behind every great fortune there is a crime.
" Are you talking about me? Do I look like a rich guy? Faysal's right-hand man.
I'm talking about Mazhar Dragusha.
What do you know about him? - He's involved in some dirty business.
- Like what? The guy who attacked Faysal Erdem at the party.
He hasn't said a word to anybody since he saw his lawyer.
So? What's wrong with that? Maybe his lawyer told him not to talk.
- Do you know who his lawyer is? - Who? I figured out that he's Mazhar when the police described him.
Here's everything I found about him.
It's like someone came into his life and erased every single thing.
Most of the information is missing.
He was a Maroon Beret.
He lived in Maçka.
There's his old address and stuff.
Get to the point.
What do you want? I need evidence.
You will help me.
Find yourself another spy.
OK? I'll take this.
Don't come to me again.
Come on, Emir.
By the way.
If you think Mazhar is that dangerous, stop going after him.
Do you understand, handsome? He'll pay.
Why did you jump on that journalist? He sounded reasonable to me.
We don't know if he's really after Mazhar.
He may be his man.
Maybe Mazhar is trying to trap me.
How do we know? Right.
I would never think of it.
I grew up in the Grand Bazaar region.
I really know about people.
Oh! Zeynep.
I think she likes you.
What makes you say that? I grew up in Princes' Island.
I know this stuff.
She does not like me.
You, matchmaker.
OPEN - Doctor, what's up? - We need to talk.
I'll be late for work.
We'll talk later.
I thought you would get close to Mazhar and collect information.
Get to the point.
I heard you're seeing someone from work.
Can't I have a private life? I don't mean that.
We don't have much time.
A new relationship might distract you.
Doctor, I'm not a child.
I know what I need to do.
Besides, you can't tell me what to do saying I'm the Protector.
Do you know what my dream was? I wanted to become someone like Faysal Erdem.
I lost my passion because I go after Mazhar.
Realize how important you are.
You are responsible to us.
- I didn't ask for it.
- You just take it.
My dad took responsibility.
Did he save Istanbul? No.
Your father did his best.
I had a brother and a sister.
Why did they die? I didn't even know I had siblings.
Why did my mom die? - You're still bullshitting me! - Hakan, listen.
He died for nothing.
So did my mom and siblings.
For what? To save Istanbul! Don't be disrespectful to your father's memory.
He shouldn't have involved in this bullshit.
He was plain stupid.
Look, if you're smart, you'll quit all this.
You're young.
Go and live your life.
Nobody was able to save Istanbul.
Is it our fucking job now? OPEN Doctor, hearts are broken How long Will this unjust negotiation persist In this unpleasant life? Let it envy Let the frustrated efforts steal From destiny Let time pass Let it confess in its deathbed Let it rewind We overestimated this life But it was only for one time This is the final step Those sidewalks are full Of traces of sins Humans have become afraid Of themselves - Don't worry.
- Uncle Kemal, listen.
You know that I can go on my duty until I die.
- I can kill Mazhar, you know.
- We need to find the stone first.
Hakan is sure that Mazhar is the Immortal.
You confirmed that he stole the ring.
Zeynep found out yesterday that he has no family.
What are we looking for? Let's shoot him in the head.
If he doesn't die, then we'll know he's the Immortal.
What if he dies? We're not murderers.
Uncle Kemal.
You did your best.
It's time for you to go back home.
Send my greetings to your father.
I need to find that dagger.
Hey! Where are you going? Is Timur inside? We'll be open at night.
Go away now.
Guys, I don't want to trouble you.
I just asked where Timur was.
Get out.
Don't bother us.
Kemal! Don't make me pay for them.
They have no insurance.
Is there a place we can talk? Would you drink something? Oh! Dragusha.
A weird last name! He could be Greek or maybe Armenian.
Oh, I remember.
He's Albanian.
Does that matter? You said he left, and then? Yes.
It's not certain if he left by his own choice or someone else made him leave though.
He vanished after the incident.
Can you just give me the whole story? What incident? His wife and his daughter were found dead.
- His wife and his daughter? - Yes.
It was 10 or 15 years ago.
They were strangled.
The police came and investigated, but they couldn't find anything.
Are you sure that it was his family? Why are you asking? I'm a journalist.
- What's your name? - Yasin Karakaya.
Do you know if someone lives in his old house? Nobody lives there.
It's been like that for years.
- They didn't rent it out, either.
- I see.
Have a good day.
Two cups of Turkish coffee.
One is without sugar.
Miss Erman, I don't know.
I'm sorry, I would love to, but I've already hired someone.
I don't think you could find someone as qualified as I am in one day.
I don't know, but he's really good at what he does.
You don't seem like someone who can be content with less while you can have the best.
I am fascinated by your self-esteem each time.
OK, all right.
- Come on, we're going.
- Where? Come on.
Good afternoon.
Hakan, I'm waiting for you in my office.
Why are you here, Kemal? I'm looking for the dagger.
As Burhan died, you must know where it is.
It's funny to remind you this as you are a conformist.
I can tell you where the dagger is only when the Protector returns.
And you know that.
The Protector has returned.
Murat's son.
Out! Levent died.
If you have come here to tell me this again, fuck off! I blame myself enough already.
Not Levent.
His younger son, Hakan.
Neşet took him from the orphanage and raised him.
- Where is Neşet, then? - He died.
So did Ayşe.
What about the shirt? Now that the Protector has returned, we need to follow the protocol.
We must inform the Master.
- The Loyal Ones should also know.
- Hakan isn't ready yet.
You're making a mistake.
Then it's my mistake.
So, we're picking up from where we left off after 20 years? Where is the dagger, Timur? Mr.
Dragusha? Hakan.
Is there anything you want to tell me? I mean By the way When I ask a question, I know the answer.
Actually, I was going to talk to you.
A journalist named Yasin Karakaya came today.
He asked some questions about you.
Speak, I'm listening.
OK, we'll be downstairs in a minute.
What did that journalist ask you? Some nonsense.
Like what? Like the missing businessman and his son.
- Nothing to be taken seriously.
- Hm.
He wanted me to collect information about you.
But I refused.
That was smart of you.
I'll take care of that.
Having an affair with someone who works here is strictly forbidden.
Did you know that? Yes, Mr.
So, end your affair with Miss Sancak right away.
Or else both of you will get fired.
You don't want that, do you? Good.
I told you.
When I ask a question, I know the answer.
- Miss Sancak.
- Mr.
- Mr.
- Miss Sancak.
- After you.
- Zeynep.
Well, Mazhar.
Hakan will come with us.
You don't need to come along.
All right.
Call me if something goes wrong.
Have a good day.
I guess I don't need to introduce you.
You don't.
- Hi, Hakan.
- Hello, Zeynep.
How are you? I'm good.
Dealing with work and stuff.
I'm sorry.
Wait a minute.
I changed my mind.
You follow us.
Shall we ride this one? Would you like to drive? All right, that looks good.
I'm planning to assign you the restoration of those columns.
- So? What are you doing here? - I'm just doing my job.
Professor Akın.
How are you? Zeynep? I'm good, thanks.
How are you? Thank you.
How are you? How is your first day going? Quite well.
Thank you for providing our history with this lovely opportunity.
Yes, we're listening to you.
Oh! Two special teams from Italy and Germany want to participate in the project of cleaning the mosaics upstairs.
The Italian team is better if you ask me.
You say so? What is your opinion on that? Yes, Italians are very experienced in this area.
Gaspare and Giuseppe Fossati took out the mosaics that Mehmet II covered with plaster.
However, German archaeologists have better educational background.
Education or experience, whichever is more important to you.
Which one would be more important to you? I think the most important thing is to make it magnificent again.
Right? I agree.
Neither money nor time is a concern for this project.
Let's work with both teams.
Great idea.
I know.
There's a new excavation inside.
Care to see it? - Sure.
- Come with me.
Um, Mr.
Akın, you can take care of the archways outside if you please.
All right, sir.
Aren't you a student? I graduated.
This must belong to the Byzantines.
Ottomans would never leave it like this.
This door must have opened for the first time in 500 years.
We're the first ones to open this door after all these years.
I really can't believe it! It's very interesting.
This must be before the Byzantines.
It may be a cup for drinking the blood of the victims who were offered to gods.
You remind me of someone that I used to know.
She was very knowledgeable just like you.
She was sure of herself.
She was also a little stubborn.
Ministry of Culture Officials will come and catalog everything here.
Let me take that.
Come on.
What is this door? Let's discover there later.
Let's not keep the people waiting.
It's unbelievable.
Thank you so much.
That was wonderful.
So, I guess I took the job, Mr.
Unfortunately, no.
I promised Mr.
You could have said that in your office.
We didn't need to come here.
We spent time together to get to know each other.
I'm sure we'll work together in the future, if not now.
I'm not so sure.
You might see yourself fit for Mr.
Akın's position, but maybe I have bigger plans about you.
- Hakan can give you a ride if you like.
- No, it's fine.
I can go by myself, thank you.
All right.
- Goodbye.
- Have a good day.
Please, come tonight.
We need you.
- Let's work on this, OK? - Tell me, Germans or Italians? You know the best, Mr.
- Good evening.
- Good evening.
- Is Professor Akın's contract ready? - Banu is working on it.
We can send it first thing tomorrow morning.
Come to my office in two minutes.
- I'd like to talk to you.
- Yes, sir.
Hakan, you seemed to act weird in the elevator today.
I know, I'm a little confused.
About what? Um I We Well Hakan, you can say what you want.
I Mr.
Erdem is waiting for me.
Come in, Hakan.
Have a seat, please.
How is your first week going? Did you like your job? Everything's good, Mr.
Are you sure? It looks like something is wrong.
Um Mr.
Erdem, in your second book, you say, "Our lives are made up of the choices we make.
" Yes.
But the quote doesn't end there.
"Our lives are made up of the choices we make, but it doesn't mean that you should be content with one thing.
" What if you need to choose one thing under the circumstances? That you can't have two things at once? Who says that? Everybody is the captain of their own ship.
I was at your age when I started this job.
And people kept telling me what I could do and what I couldn't do.
They said that I couldn't run a hotel and do restoration at once.
That I couldn't manage airways and shipping at once.
They said I couldn't have business and love at once.
I will tell you two things.
First, don't listen to those people.
Because they failed, they think you'll fail, too.
They even try to make you believe that.
Second, hire both the Italians and the Germans.
What do you mean? I said it in Hagia Sophia today.
If someone says "or" to you, make it "and.
" Otherwise, you won't make any progress.
Thank you.
Excuse me.
I'm sorry about what happened this morning.
I'm the one who should apologize.
I went too far.
But I'm not my dad.
I mean, this is my life.
My choices.
My dreams.
I won't give up.
I'll do my job.
But I won't give up on my dreams, too.
Is that OK? Yes, sir.
Doctor? Welcome back, Protector.
So, how do we find this dagger? Dad's already found it.
When your father died, the Loyal Ones hid the dagger in a place where nobody could find it.
A place where nobody can take it out even if they find it.
A place where people go every day.
A crowded place.
The dagger is in a museum.
