Power (2014–…): Season 6, Episode 12 - He Always Wins - full transcript

Paz, still grieving Angela's death, seeks allies in the pursuit of justice-or vengeance. She forms an alliance with Warner. They hatch a plan to arrest Ghost for the murder of Angela. But ...

Previously on Power...

That's my friend
Jamie St. Patrick.

I thought I told you
to stay away from that boy.

‐ He's no good.
‐ Pap‐‐

‐ He was a punk.
‐ He's changed.

He's not like that anymore.

I know, but it's not enough.

This isn't gonna be
a happily ever after.

Can't you see?

He's making you like him:

a liar, a cheat.

I need you to be happy for me.

I'm not gonna stand by
and watch you ruin your life.

Then I need you to give me
the key to my place.

If I ever catch you
near my sister again,

I'll kill you
with my bare hands.

My career is over, Paz,
no matter what I do.

I have to start over entirely.

Then you start over,
without Jamie...

It's not about Jamie.

It's always about Jamie.

You gotta save yourself.

- ‐ Murderer.
- Alex‐‐

Murderer! Murderer!
You killed my sister!

‐ No!
‐ I'm fucking out of here.

This is bullshit, man.
You're letting them win.

Good luck, Saxe.

They put a freeze
on Angela's benefits.


How‐how well
did you know your sister?

Really, Angela?

I'm gonna take this phone
and turn it in and make sure

that you and Jamie go to prison
for the rest of your lives.

Fine, go to the cops,
but just know

that this phone implicates her,

and I got every text
message she sent,

every voice mail she left.

Paz, Tommy Egan.

If you ever need anything,
anything at all,

you put the word out,
all right?

Thank you.

Local entrepreneur
James St. Patrick

will soon be announced

as Tate rival Lorette Walsh's
running mate.

Did James St. Patrick

tell you that he killed
Terry Silver?

I was there.

And you're willing
to say that on the stand?

I'm willing to say that shit
wherever you want me to.

How the fuck did you
get in here?

I'm not fucking
going away, you know,

and neither is James St.
Patrick or Tommy Egan.

They're still out there.

You're gonna be out there
with them in just a minute.

Jamie, please.
Who killed my sister?

I can't tell you,
because I don't know.

There isn't anything
you can do?

It's over.

Can somebody help me?



Can somebody help me
find my sister?




You're too late, Paz.
She's gone.

‐ What?
‐ She's dead.

Angela's dead.
You weren't here.

‐ No.
‐ You weren't here.

‐ No.
‐ And you couldn't stop me.

Get away from me.

Get away.

Murderer! Murderer!



It's okay.
Shh, it's okay.

Shh, I'm here.

It's okay, Papi.

I'm here.

You live with me now, remember?

I'm your daughter.
Everything's okay.

What would I do without you?

I'm Paz, Papi.

You ready to get out of bed?

‐ Ah.
‐ Okay.

You want me
to turn on the news?


Rumors are circulating

that after supporting
councilman Rashad Tate

for most of this gubernatorial
primary season,

local entrepreneur
James St. Patrick

‐ has left the Tate campaign.
‐ Jamie St. Patrick?

In a stunning turn of events...

I told you to stay away
from him, Angelita.

He's no good.

...will soon be announced

as Tate rival Lorette Walsh's
running mate.

If true, this move would
virtually ensure Walsh's bid

to become
the Democratic candidate

in the race
for New York state governor.

Walsh is vulnerable
with urban and minority...

I don't understand why you
don't just tell him she's dead.

What am I supposed to do,
remind him every day?

He doesn't need that.

Neither do I.

Did you hear?

Yeah, they think Angela's
killer's gonna be president.

Over my dead body.

You should go back to bed.

I can't.

I gotta go take care
of something.

Is it Titi's pension?

'Cause if I'm gonna go
to school next quarter,

we need to send them
a check soon.

Yeah, baby,
that's exactly what it is.

Tell me everything you know
about Cooper Saxe.

You already fired him.
What else do you want?

I want him behind bars
is what I want.

I need you to give me instances
of him leading witnesses,

suborning perjury, you know,

anything I can take
before a judge.

So you're gonna ride Saxe
all the way to D. C., huh?

Hey, look out.

Cooper Saxe has fucked over
the Eastern District

600 ways to Sunday,

and you're the only person
who's worked with him

who's not dead
or currently his counsel.

I need you to talk.

He conflicted Tameika out
by hiring her as counsel?

That's right.

Smart move.

I'm actually
a little proud of him.

I'm not gonna help you.

Hey, where do you think
you're going?

I'm not finished with you.

Angela Valdes gave you
the recommendation

that got you that job in D. C.

What did you give her
in return?

You are complicit
in the death of Tony Teresi.

You don't help me out here,
I'm gonna indict you

for conspiracy
right along with Saxe.

That's how it works.

Last time we talked,
he wanted to find

a way to use Teresi's
inadmissible testimony.


That wasn't so hard.
What else?

He was going on
about Maria Suarez

being a witness against
Egan and St. Patrick.

Suarez got killed before she
even had a chance to testify,

just like Teresi,

Lindsay Proctor, Joe Proctor,

LaKeisha Grant,
Angela Valdes herself.

Everyone Saxe has turned
or tried to turn

has shown up dead.

Yeah, I heard about
Angela and Donovan.

Yeah, Donovan got it while
he was watching over Coleman,

who was Angela's witness.

Do you see what I'm saying?

Saxe has gotta be stopped.

I can't help you stop him.

He didn't break the law
in front of me.

Now, I can tell you
that he was obsessed

with taking Angela down
and James St. Patrick with her.

Has he shown poor judgment?

Criminal malfeasance?

I wouldn't really know.

Thank you for your time.

It's always nice to meet somebody
from the regional office.

Fucking twat.

Paz? What are you doing here?

Is it true?
He's running for office?

Looks that way.

Well, we can stop him.

With everything
the two of us know about him,

we can go to the cops
or‐or the press.

We can blow him up.

I wish I could, but I'm sure
you can appreciate

that as a single mother,

I don't have
a lot of resources.

If James gets exposed,
if James gets arrested,

I'll have even less.

He ruined both
our lives, Tasha,

or did you forget
how all of this started?

Oh, you mean when your sister
had an affair with my husband?

Angela didn't know
he was married

when they first got together.

Oh. Hmm.

When she found out,
she was willing to walk away.

She did not wanna
break up a marriage.

Oh, but she did it anyway,
didn't she?

‐ Oh.
‐ Look. I get it.

You're angry at James.
Trust me, I'm angry too.

Fuck angry.

Jamie told her
that all he cared about

was her, the kids,
and a nightclub in Miami.

He didn't care about you.

He threw away your marriage.

He was going to take
everything away from you.

Look around.

He has taken everything.

I mean, what do you
want me to say,

that I hate him?

Fine. I do.

I hate him.

But I love my kids,

and I can't take James down
without taking them down too.

Your kids?

He already made you
lose one of them too.

Oh, no.
Don't push me.

Don't do that.
Now, you listen.

James didn't kill Raina,

just like he didn't
kill Angela,

no matter what
the fuck you think.

‐ Stop lying for him!
‐ Would you listen?

If I thought we could
take him down,

you don't think I would try?

I would.

But there's no beating him.

He always wins.

If you're not gonna help me,
I'm gonna do it myself.


You have to take them
every day.

‐ Papi, come‐‐

Mom, thank God.
Papi won't‐‐

‐ You have to take care of him.
‐ Well, Mama‐‐

I'm not staying.

How could you let
Cooper fucking Saxe

into this building?

That man is dangerous!

Do you realize
what he could have done?

I'm sorry, sir,
but his badge worked.


So why the fuck is that when
he was fired two days ago?

Jesus Christ!

He could have fucking
killed me, you know.

I need to talk
to Cooper Saxe.

"Cooper Saxe doesn't
work here anymore."

What? Why?

Because when future generations
study prosecutorial misconduct,

Cooper Saxe's face will be
on the cover of the textbook.

I'm sorry.

I'm U. S. Attorney
Jacob Warner.

Can I help you?

I'm Paz Valdes,

Yeah, of course.

Jesus Christ.

Miss Valdes, I can only imagine
how frustrated you are

at the lack of resolution
around your sister's murder.

Seeking justice for Angela
is this office's top priority,

which is why I wanna offer you
my deepest apologies

for the ways that Mr. Saxe
botched the investigation

and let you know that we are firmly
committed to finding those responsible.

What do you mean?

How did he botch
the investigation?

You promised to arrest Jamie
for what he did.

I know.

But there's something
you need to know.

Look, according
to the autopsy report,

St. Patrick didn't kill Angela.

Yeah, no.
You're lying.

I promise I'm telling you
the truth about this.

Oh, you promise?

Like you promised
to arrest Jamie?


I'm sorry.

I don't need your apology.
I need your help.

My hands are tied.

Because you went
and got fired!

I got fired because
I wouldn't stop

trying to put
St. Patrick in jail.

I... I almost broke
the law to do it.

The evidence doesn't support

what you and I both
thought was true.

We can't arrest him.

You know, Angela didn't want
to go to Choate at first.

She was so smart,

but she didn't want
to leave Jamie behind.

But I pushed her to apply,

because it was her chance
to get out.

I fought for that girl
her whole life:

to get out
of the old neighborhood,

to get away from Jamie.

But the streets got her anyway.

He got her anyway.

So don't you dare tell me
that Jamie St. Patrick

didn't kill her,

because if he didn't do it,
then who did, hmm?

Who killed my sister?

I can't tell you who pulled
the trigger.

But it's my fault.


We knew what kind
of trouble she was in

when we had her in the box.

We never should have
let her out.

We... we knew
what she was doing.

What was she doing?

You really wanna know?

Angela was gonna be charged
with conspiracy

for acting as in‐house counsel

to James St. Patrick's
criminal drug organization,

including multiple counts
of aiding and abetting,

obstruction of justice,

and potentially acting
as an accomplice

in the murders of Mike Sandoval
and Tony Teresi.

Accomplice to murder?

She wouldn't do
any of that, no.

He deserves to go down
for what he's done,

but it's not gonna be
for Angela's murder.

So how do we get him?

Any news on Titi's money?

They're processing it.

That's what you said
last time.

Well, what do you
want from me?

It's the government.
It takes time.

aren't you telling me?

There are a lot of things
we didn't know about Angela,

and it looks like she got
herself in some trouble.

What'd she do?

She might have been

an accomplice
to Jamie St. Patrick

in his drug business.

So she did this to herself?


She did this to herself,
and she did this to us.


She's the reason we're able
to live in this apartment.

She's the reason you were able
to go to school at all.

She didn't do this.
Jamie did.

A‐and we're supposed
to do what,

sit here and wait
for the government

to cut us a check while he's
out there kissing babies?

There might be one more
thing I can do,

but it's risky,

and it would ruin
Angela's reputation.

It would destroy
everything she worked for.

Look around, Mom.

Everything that Titi
worked for is gone.

She's gone.

There's nothing left
to protect, Mom.

Our lives are a mess, and Papi
doesn't even know she's dead.

She wanted Papi
in the nursing home,

and she wanted me in school.

Is that happening?

What fresh hell is this?

You told her she can
come by anytime.

Yeah, but I didn't mean it.


What can I do for you,
Miss Valdes?

What would you say
if I could give you

a piece of evidence
that connects Angela

to the St. Patricks'
drug association?

Have a seat.

All right.

If you were to come forward
with something like that,

means exposing your sister as
part of a criminal enterprise,

which means,
if it bears any fruit,

that her pension,
her benefits, her honors,

they all go away.

You get nothing.

I don't care,

as long as James St. Patrick
is arrested.

All I want is justice.

‐ You want revenge.
‐ Yeah.


...where is it?

Lay it down.

Uh, where did you say it is?

Uh, bottom half
of the casket

behind the lining
near her feet.


She says it's in the lining
by the feet.

Lift it up.

Got it.

We got it.

Bag it.

‐ I got good news and bad news.
‐ What's the good news?

Ah, no, no, no.

Bad news first.

The SIM card is trashed.

I won't be able to identify
who AUSA Valdes was contacting.

The good news is that some
of the outgoing messages

were saved on the phone itself.

What are the outgoing

Requests to meet, mostly.

One‐word affirmative
and negative answers

to questions we'll never know.

Miss Valdes, was your sister
contacting James St. Patrick

on that phone?

Could you testify to that fact?


But she was talking
to Tasha St. Patrick,

maybe for him.

Can you prove that?

So Angela was up to no good,
and we can't prove with whom.

I warned you that this might
not look good for your sister.

It doesn't look good for her,

and it doesn't get us
closer to St. Patrick.

Thank you, Jeremy.

Yes, sir.

I did not just dig up
my sister's body for nothing.

This can't be how this ends.

I'm afraid that it is,

unless you have another
piece of evidence.


There has to be something else
that we can do.

Miss Valdes, I am very sorry,

but this department has thrown
more time and money

in trying to catch
James St. Patrick‐‐

Wire me up.

Excuse me?

Let me go talk to him.
I can get him to confess.

‐ I know it.
‐ To what,

a murder that he's already
been questioned and cleared on

by both NYPD and several
federal prosecutors,

that the autopsy conclusively
states he did not commit?


For all of it,

his criminal enterprise.

Anything that can help.

You have to let me try.



‐ You good?
‐ Yeah.

Remember, we don't need him
to confess to killing Angela.

That's not gonna happen.

All we need is confirmation
of his criminal activity

and we can move forward
with the RICO,

but the more specific,
the better.

Why was Angela
in communication with Tasha?

Did she leak the info
about Sandoval and Teresi?

What else did she tell them?

I know it's a lot,

but getting him on tape
with any one of those things

could bring down
the whole organization.

You sure you're up for this?

I'm ready.


What are you doing here?

You know, it looks different
from‐from what Angela told me.

Yeah, it looks
different at night.

So what's up?
You okay?

You know I was supposed
to come with her that night,

after the opening?

I was too tired.

I told her I'd come
with her another time.

Things would've been so different
if I would've just come.

No, Paz.
Don't do that.

Nothing would have been
different, okay?

You can't change
what happened.

Look, let me just get through
what I came here to say.

I know about
the autopsy results.

I know you didn't
kill my sister.

It's nice to know...

...you believe me now.

I believe you weren't
the shooter.

You could've
hired him, though.

But looking at you now,
I don't believe that either.

I'm sorry I blamed you.

I know you loved her too.

With all my heart.

And I would do anything
to change what happened.

But you can't.

But there is one thing
you could do.

Just say it.

Look, I know Angela
had secrets.

I just wanna know
who she was.

What was she doing for you?

Why would she risk her life

to keep you out of jail?

She was risking her life
to keep us all out of jail.

Your sister was trying
to save everyone.

That's right,
you son of a bitch.

Say something stupid.

Everyone who?


Is that why they were
talking to each other?

Angela told you that?

What was she trying
to save you from?

Come on, you bastard.


Angela saved my life.

She saved my family
more than once.

And if I could trade my life
for hers right now,

I would.

If you didn't do it, Jamie...

I need you to tell me who did.



Who killed my sister?

I can't tell you
who‐who killed your sister...

...'cause I don't know
who killed Angela.

‐ You won't see me again.
‐ No, Paz.

I won't come back here.


Listen. Listen.

Professionals with way more
experience than you

have not been able
to crack him, okay?

This was a long shot at best.

He's fucking guilty.

He just said she was
keeping them all out of jail.

I mean, you have
to do something.

I need names, crimes,
something concrete

that I can follow up on.

‐ What am I supposed to do now?
‐ This is not over.

We're not giving up
on catching him, Paz.

There's another case where we think
we may be able to prove his guilt,

a lawyer we think
he may have killed.


...now that
we have him on tape

saying that Angela helped
keep him out of jail,

that‐that's hard proof
that she was dirty.

Her benefits will be withheld.

There's‐there's no pension.
I'm sorry.


This was blowing up
while you were in there.

I'm sorry.

Oh, my God.


Oh, my God.
Is he okay?

‐ Gonna be just fine.
‐ Oh, thank God.

But we're gonna keep him
overnight for observation.

What was it,
a heart attack?

Anxiety attack.


What is he anxious about?

Don't know.

‐ What happened?
‐ Mom, I'm so sorry.

He collapsed when I told him.


What did you tell him?

That Titi died.

Why would you do that?

I told you not to tell him!

Uh, I‐I just thought
he'd snap out of it

if I told him the truth.

I'm not a nurse; I shouldn't be
taking care of him.

I should be going
back to school.

Well, you're not going
back to school!


I'm sorry.
It didn't work.

I ruined her reputation
for nothing.

Now we won't get her pension,

and Papi can't go back
to the home,

you can't
go back to school,

and Jamie is still out there,

and there is nothing
I can do about it.

I don't know about nothing.

What are you talking about?

the only way to deal

with a violent world
is with violence.

Don't say that.
Don't even pretend.

That doesn't mean
you have to do it.

I know people.
I can talk to someone.

They're throwing a party
at his club tonight.

If you say some shit
like that again, Junior,

I swear to God.

This family has gone
through too much.

And you're putting us
through even more.

What if you're right
and he killed Titi?

You keep telling everyone
that he's guilty.

What's gonna stop him
from killing you?

And then what happens to me,
my life?

I can't take care
of Papi by myself.

Listen to me.

It's not over.

There are other crimes the Feds
are trying to arrest him for,

so we're gonna let them
do their job.

It's what Angela
would have wanted.

‐ But, Ma‐‐
‐ No.

In the meantime,
I'm gonna go to the salon

and try to get my check early
so I can pay for this room.

I'll figure something out.

Paz Valdes?
My name's Blanca Rodriguez.

I'm with a task force
investigating James St. Patrick.

Jacob Warner wanted me
to come talk to you.

What happened?

Did you get him
for the other murder?

Judge Tapper wouldn't give us
an arrest warrant.

He shut us down.

But does he understand
who Jamie is?

We can't prove anything.

‐ But‐‐
‐ We can't get him on Angela,

on the RICO, on anything.

We don't have enough evidence
to pursue him at all.

It's over.
I'm sorry.

You were right.
He always wins.

I told you.
What happened?

I went to the Feds.

They said they might be able to
arrest him for something else.

Not Angela, another murder,
some lawyer.

But they couldn't
make it stick.

‐ Some cop named Blanca
Rodriguez‐‐ ‐ Yeah, I know her.

Yeah, she just
told me they can't.


It's over.

He wins.

Just like you said.

I should go home.

My son needs me.
My father needs me.

But I can't look at them
in their eyes.

I know the feeling.

Why did you call me?

I had a moment.

I thought about what you said
about trying to take him down,

but I guess it's too late.

It's time to let that go.

I'm really sorry
for this morning.

Hey, you didn't say
anything that wasn't true.

Look, Paz, Angela and I
worked together

to keep my son safe.

She died helping me.

I'll always owe her for that.

I guess now, in some ways,
I owe you too.

You should know...

he's moving on
with another woman.


He told me today that he
would never forget Angela,

that he would trade
his life for hers.

Sounds like him.

He told all three of us
a lot of things.

Who is she?

His campaign strategist,

the next in a long line of
women buying into his bullshit.

But at least Angela
didn't have kids with him.

At least you can walk away.

‐ Paz, what you doing here?
‐ Yeah.

Um, a‐at Angela's funeral,

you said that if I ever needed
anything, I could reach out.

‐ Yeah, yeah, I remember.
‐ Okay, yeah.

Well, um, I know that you
and Jamie are friends.

Nah, we ain't
friends no more.

Oh, th‐that's even better,
'cause I need you‐‐

Whoa, Paz, what the fuck
are you doing?


I‐I need you to kill
Jamie for me.

I need you to kill the man
that murdered my sister.

Yeah, I can't do that.

Yo, don't fuck
with me, Tommy.

I know what you're capable of.

You think the people
in the neighborhood don't talk?

Don't matter what they say.
You came to the wrong place.

You know, here.
Here, take that.

‐ No, I don't want that.
‐ No, take it! I don't want it!

I don't want anything from you
except this one thing, please.

Okay, you gotta go, Paz, now.

No. No.
Okay, wait.

Listen to me.
Listen to me.

You have to do
this thing for me, okay?

Jamie's a monster.
He's evil.

No one's gonna miss him.

Angela didn't deserve
what happened to her.

She's a good person.

She wasn't that good.

If that's true,
it's because of what Jamie did!

This has got nothing
to do with him, Paz.

She made that choice.
Yes, Paz.

Look, we all do
crazy shit, though, Paz,

for the people that we love.

You think you different?

Now, you gotta go
before I call the cops.

Tommy, listen, I swear
I won't tell a soul.

Tommy, I'm begging you!

Tommy, please!
I'm begging you!




You got Andre Coleman
to do what?

We have to go back to Tapper.

He's an eyewitness.
He said he would testify.

Of course he said that.

He's gonna say anything
you want him to!

What‐what, are you taking
Saxe's crazy pills now?

I can't act on this.

It's too late, sir.

He's being transported
to a safe house right now.

Jesus Christ, Rodriguez.

Get out of my office!

And close the fucking door!

I said out!

That's funny.

I'm used to being rejected

after someone's
gotten a good look at me.

Jacob Warner, U. S. attorney

with his sights
set on Congress.

I'm sorry.

‐ You are?
‐ Steven Ott, Democratic Party.

We heard Angela Valdes' body
was exhumed

and you signed the order.

Isn't that case closed?

Mr. Ott,

the general policy
of this office

is not to comment
upon such matters.

That said, there is
some new evidence‐‐

Oh, maybe I wasn't clear.
That case is closed.

James St. Patrick is property
of the Democratic Party now,

and as someone who hopes
to find himself

in that position
in the future,

you need to stop whatever
it is you're doing.

No, I‐I told him I didn't want
to try the Partagas.

These are Fuente Don Arturo

They are a gift.

From who?


All right.

I appreciate the time, sir.

What do you want, Jacob?

There's new evidence
against St. Patrick.

We'd like to expedite
an arrest.

I see that.
Thanks, doll.

We have him on tape
admitting to conspiracy,


there's an eyewitness.

Andre Coleman saw St. Patrick
kill Terry Silver

with his own eyes,

and he's ready
to take the stand.

We don't get better
evidence than that.




Your call has been forwarded
to an automatic voice message system.

No. No. No. No.



Mom, you shouldn't
be here right now.

What the hell do you think
you're doing?

If you don't let me take care
of this right now,

you'll be obsessed with this
for the rest of your life.

‐ Are you out of your mind?
‐ No.

He didn't just do this
to you, Mom.

He did this to me too,
and I want my life back.

I want our life back.
I want you back.

Don't you think
I want that too?

But this isn't how.

It's not your job to fix it.

It's mine.

Mom, let me do this for you.

I said go home right now!

I already lost Angela, and I
am not gonna lose you too.

If you wanna do
something for me,

the one thing
I need you to do...

is go home.


Give me the gun, honey.

It's okay.

Paz Valdes?

I'm Ramona Garrity,
James' political strategist.

I'm sorry about what
happened to your sister.

I just wanted to thank you.

‐ For what?
‐ I didn't mean to eavesdrop.

But I overhead your apology
to James earlier,

and the way he spoke to you
just really helped me

to see how good of a man
he really is.

Oh, my God.

That apology was a lie.

You have no idea
who Jamie really is.

You have no idea
what you're dealing with.

Well, I know
that there are things

that he's not proud of
from his youth.

He's never hidden that.

What do you see in him?

Please tell me.

'Cause I never
understood what she did.

He doesn't care
about anybody,

just what they can do for him.

That's not the James I know.


Angela thought the same thing,

and it's the reason she's dead.

Being close to Jamie
is the reason she is dead.

But you have a choice here.
You can stop him.

There are some people

who are just unstoppable.

She did not wanna
break up a marriage.

Oh, but she did it anyway,
didn't she?

This ain't got
nothing to do with him.

She made that choice.

We all do crazy shit,
though, Paz,

for the people that we love.

Nothing would've
been different.

You couldn't change
what happened.

I want him.

No one else will ever
know me like that.


What's gonna stop
him from killing you?

And then what happens to me,
my life?

There are some people
who are just unstoppable.

At least you can walk away.

I went to see
Jamie St. Patrick tonight.

You were right.

I went to kill him.

But I couldn't do it.

I'm sorry.

I wanted to make things right,
and I couldn't do it.

I should have saved her.

I should have protected her.


All we wanted for our family...

was peace.


Things came so easy
for Angela.

But you always had
to try so hard.

It's all right.

I love you.

You tried so hard.

Thank you.

Local entrepreneur
and rising political star

James St. Patrick
was shot and killed last night.

‐ Oh, my God.
‐ The murder happened

inside of Truth nightclub

shortly after a party
celebrating his announcement...

‐ Junior.
‐ ...as running mate

to gubernatorial candidate
Lorette Walsh.


Shots were fired
at about 11:45 p. m.

Inside of St. Patrick's
nightclub here

in Manhattan's
Meatpacking District.

Now, local authorities were
on the scene immediately...

He lost.

...though no arrests
have been made.

Now, St. Patrick...

Mom, you lied to me.
You told me you didn't do it.

It wasn't me.
I swear.

...with council member
Rashad Tate

before Democratic
frontrunner Walsh

announced St. Patrick
as her running mate.

That's the latest
from the scene.

Back to you.

Can you
give us the room, please?

Shut the door behind you.

You were told to leave
James St. Patrick alone,

but you didn't listen.

I beg your pardon?

You should know better than to
go against the Democratic Party.

It seems to me
that St. Patrick's death

proves that
the Justice Department

was right to pursue
that arrest warrant.

Yeah, unfortunately for you,

the powers that be
don't see it that way.

It seems like
the Democratic Party

wants to squash the truth
about James St. Patrick.

Imagine if the voting public
were to learn about that.

That's not how this works.

You're in over
your head, Jacob.

But hey, look,
you had a good run, right?

I mean, at least
you're getting out alive.

‐ I'm far from done here.
‐ That's what you think.

Well, you can't fire me.

The call's coming.

If I were you,
I'd start packing my things.

Get the fuck out of here.

There it is.

Get it.

You ain't never gonna
get him to talk.

He a real G.

What's that make you?

Me? Shit.

That makes me a free man.

All right.

Well, you hang tight.
Transportation is on its way.

I'm here to see Warner.


‐ What happened to your face?
‐ Run‐in with a suspect.

Where's Warner?

Come talk to me for a minute.

Please, have a seat.

So what happened?

Who killed Jamie?

We have a lot of suspects,
a lot of people

in and out of Truth last night,
including his wife.

But listen, uh,
about Angela's pension.

I can still make
a couple calls,

but I gotta warn you,

we had another shakeup here
this morning, and, um...

...I don't think
it's gonna happen.

I'm sorry.

I didn't come here
about the money.

I came here about her body.

I need to put my sister
back in the ground,

at peace.

I gotta say,

this is a bigger surprise
than my first pregnancy test,

but in a good way.

I'm, uh, glad to hear that.

I can't wait to tell my son
about this, my other son.

Probably say it's a fucking
hoax, ungrateful bastard.

‐ Okay then.
‐ Bye, now.


Miss Valdes?

Daniel Warren.

I'm handling
James St. Patrick's estate.

Um, let's step
into my office, shall we?

Uh, can you wait here?
I wanna talk to him alone.

So in his will,

James left a sizable
inheritance to‐‐

Look, I don't care
what he left Angela.

I don't want anything from him.

He‐he didn't
leave it to Angela.

He left it to you.


He, uh, came into the office

and updated the will
shortly after she passed away.

You gotta be kidding me.

He put Angela in his will.

Course he did.

Actually, it was me.

But you don't have
to worry about it,

'cause I didn't take it.

I don't have
to accept his charity.

Did you do it, Tasha?

Did you kill him?

You should take the money.

I'm not interested.

I can't profit
off my sister's death.

My son's waiting.
Good‐bye, Tasha.

Listen, Paz.

I cannot let you just
walk out of here like that.

You need the money,
and James didn't kill her.

Okay, look.

I know Angela made her choices,

but he is still responsible.

No. He's not.

Tommy is.

Tommy is the one
who killed Angela.

What the fuck are you
talking about?

‐ That doesn't make any sense.
‐ It does.

If Angela got in the middle
of something she shouldn't have

and Tommy
saw an opportunity...

it does.


James loved your sister
more than anyone.

More than he ever loved me,
that's for sure.

Tommy wanted to hurt him,

and killing Angela was the
one way to hurt him the most.

I need you to kill the man
that murdered my sister.

Yeah, I can't do that.

Seriously, please.

Take the money.

I know you need it.

And Angela would have
wanted you to have it.

I want you to have it.



Mrs. St. Patrick,
come right this way.

Mom, what‐what did we get?
Am I going back to school?

Yes, baby, you are.

You okay?

Can you go be
with your grandfather?

I'll meet you there.


Open this door!
