So, do you have any kids?

Yeah. I have a son
who's 30, and a...

grandson who's 7.

They're living with me
at the moment.

Oh, how come?

Oh, my son lost his job,
and they have no money.

Well, being a parent
is for life.

Hey. There they are.

Mr. Cousineau.
I'm the producer, Joel,

- and this is our
showrunner, Brian.
- Hey.

Do you remember me?

"Murder, She Wrote"?
I was a P.A. You attacked me.

I need more.

You threw hot tea in my face
because your omelet had chives.

- Was I playing a priest?
- Very honored to have you
on the show.

Um, what you did for this vet

was inspiring,

and we wanted to pay you
back for your service,

so we are giving you
a line.

- You're giving me a line?
- It's a small line,

four or five words,
but it's pivotal to the story.

Mr. Cousineau,
what do you say?

Thank you.

Look at this place.
Shit everywhere!

We were hit. We were hit!

Thank God we were on that
tour bus! You know, man,

if not for that
Groupon almost expiring,

we'd all be dead men.

- Is everyone okay?
- I just checked.

Everyone is safe
in hiding places.

Fucking Bolivians!

They want their heroin back.

And if that happens,
we're fucked!

I wouldn't be so quick
to blame Bolivians.

I mean, I think it's just
neighborhood kids being chodes.

No, no, no, no, no.

Cristobal sent
his goons after us!

We're going to find him,
and we're going to take him out.

Or... Or...

we make a call to Chechnya.

You want to
activate the patsy?

Oh, I want to
activate the patsy.

Telephone call from America!

Coming, my love!

Come on.

This way, my girls!
Yeah, let's go.

Daddy got a phone call! Come on!

Come on!

- Hello?
- Fuches!

It's me!

It's Hank.
It's NoHo Hank. Hi.

Oh hey, Hank.

- What's shakin'?
- So, great news.

Coast is clear.
Heat is off us.

No need to live on the lam.

You mean I can come back home?

I booked you a flight
that leaves tonight.


Tell you the truth,
I'm really happy here.

- What?
- Yeah, I got myself a little
slice of heaven here.

Turns out, I'm a natural

- at everything goat.
- Okay...


I just cooled Barry's heels
for you. I-I mean.

he's not even mad at you
anymore. I just saw him.

- You saw Barry?
- Yeah, and TBH,

you're not even on
his mind anymore.

You're not a blimp
on his radar, okay?

He is total basket case,
and he looks like shit.


I'm not interested, Hank.

No need to contact me anymore.

Well, now we have no choice
but to do suicide mission.

Cristobal and Bolivians
die tonight!

- You look beautiful.
- Beautiful.

I'm really fucking nervous.

Oh, I have deodorant.
I'll get it.
I have the good kind.

- The cancer kind!
- Sally,

just be yourself.
You're gonna be great.

Okay, thank you.
That's fine.

Oh, um, do you think they're
gonna ask about my childhood?

Shit, I hope they don't
ask about Sam, but, I mean,

I'm sure they've
done their research.

Oh, do you want some
Vaseline for your teeth?

Alexis Kaplan has
a daughter on "Pam!"

and in real life.
I don't have one in real life.

Is that bad?
You think they're gonna
call me inauthentic?

I mean, should I say that
I'm considering adoption?

No. I-I think they'll see

how authentic your passion
for the show is.

Just don't be too
passionate, you know?

You don't wanna be
the real you
in the wrong way.

By the way, I love
this romper. It says,

"I'm a woman, but don't
treat me like one."

That's what we were going for.

Oh my god!
Oh, you look so cute!

Oh, thank you. I mean,
this is all so exciting!

- You are going to have
so much fun, sweetie.
- Oh, yeah.

- I'm just really nervous.
- Oh, don't be. Oh my god.

Just be yourself.
You'll be fine. You'll be great.

- Yeah.
- No, no reason to be nervous.

You all set? Okay, great.

Just go in.
You have five minutes.

Ask a few questions.
You're talking to Sally Reed.

It's spelled R-E-E-D.
The show's called "Joplin."

Talking to Sally Reed.
You all set? Alright. Mm!

Hey, Sally.

- Hey!
- Here's Madeleine
from "E! News."

Sally Reed!
How you doin', girl?

- I'm good.
- Now, the show
takes place in Joplin,

- and you were raised there.
- Mm-hmm, that's right.

Is that really
what Joplin's like?

Well, it's a lot
less freezing on set.

Okay, great. Thanks.

Here's Mike
from "Access Hollywood."

Sally Reed!
How ya doin', girl?

- I'm good.
- This is a show about a woman
trying to help her daughter

leave an abusive relationship
in Joplin, Missouri.

- Yes, that's right.
- Was that tough?

- Yes?
Alright, great.
And who do you think

should be the next Spider-Man?


Ben Mendelsohn?


- Here's Taylor
from "Screen Nerd."
- There she is,

- Sally Reed. Girl boss.
- Hi.

Hashtag "you go, girl!"
You feeling 100, yeah?

They let me keep my beard.

Yeah, they said some pharma guys
actually have a beard like this.


Wanna run lines?
Yeah? Alright.

What I did was terrible,

and I'm truly sorry.

I accept your apology.

That was great.

Oh, man.

This trailer is nice.

Might go over to the
"Wheel of Fortune" building,

- take some pictures--
- Did she suffer?

But she figured out
that it was you
she was looking for.

And I invited you to my cabin.

Who was that guy that
took me into the woods?

He's nobody.

Actually, you know what?
That's not true.

I want to be honest with you

because I think we have
a good thing going here.


He's a family friend.

- He's actually kinda like a--
- An uncle?

He got you into
this line of work?

So that monologue
that you gave me

when I first met you,
that was fuckin' true?

And then I said it again
at the dinner table.

- And she knew it was you.
- Hey, we don't need
to rehash all this.

If I didn't say anything...

- she'd be alive today.
- Ah, no, don't put
that on yourself,

Mr. Cousineau.

No, she was good at her job.

The whole thing's just
really unfortunate, you know?

Look, I believe,

and some of this I got
from your teachings, that...

th-that you can be the version
of yourself that you want to be.

I never said that to you.

What I'm saying is...

is that I never
would've learned that
if it wasn't for you.

So, I'm responsible
for who you are?

The positive side. Yeah.

I mean, meeting you
changed my life
for the better, you know?

Look, we've both done
terrible things in our lives,

but we're helping
each other...

make up for it.
You know?

I mean, you got a line.

You're welcome.

Hey, Cristobal!

We're heading back
to the nursery!

To hit the Chechens during
regular business hours.



I want the revenge
just as bad as you do,

but, as you saw,

uh, we were shooting
at empty tents.

They're on the run.

I've been here,

working this territory, a...

and I'm good at my job.

And I'm telling you,
th-there is nothing for us here.


You're right.

You are good at your job.

We'll cut our losses
and head back home.

We gave LA a shot,
didn't work out.

Win some, lose some.

- It's all about perspective.
- Mm-hmm.

So, we'll head back to Bolivia?


How do I break it to the guys?

They're ready to go.

Maybe take them to lunch first.

I know what I'll do.

I'll take them
to Johnny Rockets.

And then after,
in the parking lot,

I'll say, "Hey. We aren't
attacking the Chechens.

We're heading back to Bolivia."

Thanks for helping me
figure that out.


What's that?

I bought bomb on dark web.

Jesus Christ! What the fuck
did you do that for?

We use this to blow up
Cristobal's house.


We want Fernando dead,


He is head of whole
Bolivian operation.

He ordered the hit on us.

How do you know it is this...


I just know. I...

Cristobal is a nobody, okay?

He's, like, fourth, fifth
in command. Fernando...

is the real threat here, okay?

Trust me.

Hm. Just blow up
the fucking house.

- Good luck, Akhmal.
- What? What the fuck
does it have to be me?!

- Can't we draw straws?
- Who are you?

- Bruce Willis in "Armageddon"?
- I don't wanna do this.
This is crazy.

I know someone crazy.

Jesus fucking Christ...

Hank, I said no.



Where are you?

Heaven, Barry.

Seriously, where are you?

You gonna come find me?


Hank said that you
cooled off a bit,

said you were on hard times.
I-I'm sorry to hear that.

- I'm fine.
- I wanna say

I'm sorry...

for whatever it is
you think I did

to hurt your relationship
with Mr. Cousineau.


Okay, good. Good.

Uh, now in the spirit
of that comment,

is there something
you'd like to say to me?


I'm dying, Barry.
I'm in the hospital.

Yeah, doctors are being cagey.
Not a lot of eye contact.

So, if there ever
was a time you did wanna
say something to me,

- now would be that time.
- Are those goats
in the background?

I could give you
some apology options

off the top of my head,

"I'm sorry I shot at you!

I'm sorry for ruining your
heroin deal with the Burmese!"

Alright, I don't have
time for this, okay?

Me and Mr. Cousineau are fine.

Please don't
call me again, alright?

- Yeah?
- What the fuck do you mean
you and Cousineau are fine?

I mean, we're fine.
We worked our shit out together.

Actually, we're working
together today.

- Oh, you're working.
- Yeah. On a show called
"Laws of Humanity."

- That's a great show.
- And I know

you told him I killed Janice,

but we hashed it out,
like adults.

So, there's no need
to apologize

'cause your little
fucking plan didn't work.

Oh, you're good, are you?

You're never going
to move past that!

You destroyed that guy's life!

Yeah, well now, I'm making
it up to him. By acting.

- How the fuck do you do that!?!
- Why do you care?

- I don't care!
- Well, you obviously
fuckin' care. You called me.

- You called me.
- You are fuckin' nuts, man.

Also, I know you're
on a farm or something

because I can hear goats
in the background.

Maybe I'm at the zoo
with my new best friend!

Thought you said you
were at a hospital.

I never answered the same
question so many times

in my whole life.

Did they ask you who
the new Spider-Man should be?

- Yeah, I think I said
Harry Styles or something.
- Shit, that's good.

Did they ask you
about "Cake Boss"?

Yeah, is he one of
the new Avengers?

No, it's, um--
that's a baking competition.

Shit, that's embarrassing.

Hey, do you have a date
for the premiere tomorrow?

Not unless you
count my parents.

Well, you're welcome to ride
with me and Barry, if you want.

- We have a limo.
- Um...

Yeah, um, no,
th-that's okay. Yeah.

Hey, Sally, they're
ready for you again.

- Ugh.
- I know. You got this.

Hi Sally, follow me.

- Hey, can I give you
a word of advice?
- Mm.

When your boss invites you
to the premiere with her,

- you don't say no.
- Uh...

Yeah, no.
Um, it's-- I, um, I...

I-I don't really feel, uh,
comfortable around Barry.


Um, well, uh...

The other day in
the writer's room, he, like,

screamed at her
in front of everyone,

and it was...
it was really bad.

Oh, yeah.
No, I've seen him
do that before.

He's totally harmless.
I'm sure he was
having a bad day.

I was in an acting class
with Barry,

and he's a really
good guy.

He yelled at us
a few times, and,

you know, he told us that
he killed a few people in...

some war, and that it
really messed him up. But,

I don't think that makes
him violent.

I feel like he's
gonna do something.

To Sally?
No, no, no, no, no, no.

He treats Sally like a star.

That's why she keeps
him around.

- So, you were a Marine?
- Mm-hmm.

- I do CrossFit with
a lot of Marines.
- Oh, that's cool.

They're always telling me
like, "Dude,

you totally could've
been a Marine."

And I thought about joining,
but, you know,

I guess I had too many
other options.

- Huh.
- Going on a bell!

Oh yeah, thanks.

Alright, here we go.
Excuse me.


Lock it down!

And we're rolling...

And... action!

As you know,
I got you the full amount

on the wrongful death
of your dear wife.

But no amount of money
can make this right.

They need to come here,
look you in the eye,

and apologize.

Bring him in!

Thank you for teaching me
how to right my wrongs.

Mr. Manity.

Please, call me Hugh.

Sir, my, uh,

company knowingly
hiked the prices of a drug

that would've saved
your wife's life.

What I did was terrible,

and I'm truly sorry.

I want you to stay
away from my family!

Fuck you, and don't talk to
me anymore, you piece of shit!


This show deals with abuse
and is so personal.

What's it like
being a part of that?

Yeah. I mean, it's, it's
really amazing, honestly.

And, like, Sally's so, just,

inspiring with the way
she talks about it all,

and is so open about it. Um...

Yeah, it-it's really cool.

I was just speaking with her,
and it's so good to hear

that she's in
a healthy relationship now.

Yeah. Um...

Her boyfriend...


He's great. He's--
Yeah, he's, um, he's awesome.

- This is Hank.
- I'm in.

Are you fucking serious?
Barry's back.

- Yes!
- This one's a doozy.
He's head of Bolivian crime--

Just tell me how much
and, uh, where I'm going.

- And I'll be there.
- Barry,
you are a real one, okay?

You're doing me such
a solid, you have no idea.

Okay, um...
It-it's very complicated.

There's lots of ins and outs
to it, but thank you.

Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Okay, I'll talk to you tomorrow.

So, you are giving
this job to a madman...

who killed most of our men
at the monastery?

Yes, but...

don't we want a madman?
I mean, Barry is...

Greek Freak of assassins, okay?

The monastery?

He was just having a bad day.


But, I wanted to
get rid of Barry,

and you insisted
that we use Fuches,

which was bust.

And now,

you want to stop me
going after Cristobal.

I hate seeing you like this.

So riled up about Barry,

when he's not even
thinking of you.

That's exactly why
I wanna kill him.

You don't.
Vengeance is like

drinking poison, hoping
the other person will die.

Well, at least he'd be dead.

Aren't you happy here?

If you knew everything
I did for him...

all I sacrificed to
give this kid a life...

you'd feel different.

Do you know the story
of the Bolam-Deela?


No, you don't.
I know you don't.

A long time ago,
in the Argun Gorge,

a man came across
a beautiful farmland,

and he had to make it his.

So, he killed the farmers
and took the land.

And from that day forward,
their dead souls

wandered his land in purgatory.

Until one day, a creature,

the Bolam-Deela,

appeared and offered
the souls a choice.

You can forgive the man
and go to Heaven

or seek vengeance.

All of the souls chose vengeance
except for one little boy.

So, the Bolam-Deela
granted the souls their wish

and turned them
all into panthers.

The panthers,
so full of fury and rage,

attacked and killed
the landowner.

But their souls?

They went to the bottom
of the ocean,

where they drifted in the cold,
dark depths for eternity.

And the little boy
who chose forgiveness?

He was sent to Heaven.

You say this happened
to a friend of yours?

It's a fable from
the 16th century.

- How long did it take him?
- How long did what take him?

The Vengeance Army
panther thing.

How long did it take him
to put that together?

It didn't really happen.

It's a morality story.
It's not real.
