Tokyo Vice (2022) s01e08 Episode Script


Good morning.
Thanks for letting me - sleep here.
- Of course.
No, I didn't wake you up this morning.
I figured maybe you needed the rest.
Here's a coffee.
And I got some bread.
Anything on Pol? So I went to the Meicho.
I spoke to the guy who covers Yoshino and all the little towns in that area.
And they have not seen or heard of any gaijin, any foreigners.
So I think we should file a missing persons report.
That's a great idea.
That is a fucking brilliant plan.
You know, the Japanese police department, they love to waste their whole fucking day looking for a gaijin girl who skipped out on her debts.
Is there any way that Polina just went home? No.
She didn't go home.
Why? Are you sure? I'm fucking sure.
Don't ask stupid fucking questions.
- Okay.
- Sorry.
I'm sorry.
- No, it's okay.
- You want to smoke? Listen, Pol's my best friend, but she's so openhearted.
She's very trusting.
She trusts people way too much.
She's so agreeable.
One night I was at Onyx, and I was feeling really shitty, and she came over to me and ended up taking me to her favorite place in Tokyo and - The shrine? - Yeah.
See? That's what I'm talking about.
Where did you hear about Yoshino? The tip about Yoshino? The host club that she owes money to.
So we go back there.
We see what else we can get out of them.
No, no.
Sato got it out of them.
And it turns out that the club's in deep with Sato's boss's, like, mortal fucking enemy.
- Tozawa? - Yeah.
And Sato got spooked.
So he'll never go back there.
So this is great.
If Yoshino has anything to do with Tozawa's operations, I know a guy who knows more about Tozawa's operations than anybody.
That's great.
Let's talk to them.
Okay, the only thing is, if we're gonna get this guy to talk to us, we're gonna have to go to him with an offering.
Like what? You have any idea where we can score some crystal meth? Whoa, this is fucking cool.
Hey, who are you? We met in a hostel in Asakusa, right, Jake? Yeah.
He saw I was reading your article on the Tozawa-gumi.
I'm obsessed.
And he said he knew the writer.
I thought he was flirting with me, but you know the fucking writer! She's cool, right? She's into this stuff too.
You ever gonna write about Tozawa's plans in Tokyo? - No, I write in my book, okay? - Oh, yeah, the book.
He's writing a book too.
Isn't that cool? - So cool.
- Yeah.
And, uh we were talking earlier.
We're really curious about, uh, Yoshino.
- Mm-hmm.
- Yoshino? It's like some deal that Tozawa's got going on.
Sends girls who get into debt there.
Hey, who you work for? Huh? Um You're a newspaper man, right? - No.
- How you know about Yoshino? - Jake, Jake.
- I know it.
I know it.
Give it to him.
- Take it easy.
- Give it to him.
Look, purest crystal you're ever gonna get.
We know that Tozawa's got something going on in Yoshino, we think our friend is there.
Tell us what you know about Yoshino, and this is yours.
Yeah, I know about Yoshino.

What if I have a heart attack and die? What's wrong with you? You have a condition? Yeah.
I have a condition.
I'm fucking scared.
I don't do hard drugs.
I've never done any hard drugs.
Don't be scared.
I've done this before.
I've done it with the girls at Onyx.
I got this from them, it's probably good.
We smoke, get what we came for, and get the fuck out.
Come on, Jake, look at me.
Should have made a better deal than that.

I'm sure.
Well, take care of yourself.
Your mother worries.
How's Jessica? Are you really asking, or am I just supposed to say everything's great? Can we not argue? Let's not argue.

She's not good.
I know she tells you she's fine.
She needs you to believe that, but it's, uh It's very bad again.
What if I came home? Is that what you really want, son? Josh? You sound tired.
Get some sleep.
When you wake up, if you still want to come home, I'll buy you the ticket myself.

- Sato.
If you came here to talk me out of it, don't.
It's too late for that.
Oyabun wants to do business.
That's great news.
Samantha, you should know who you are in business with.
I know the risk I'm taking.
I'm very aware of how fucking wrong this could go for me.
Then why are you doing this? Because I'm not giving up my club.
I've worked too hard.
I've done too many things to make this happen.
And it will make money.
What? Come on.
Any word about your friend Polina? I am sorry.
The funds will be placed in an account in your name tomorrow afternoon.
