StartUp (2016–…): Season 2, Episode 2 - Bleeding Edge - full transcript

Nicks almost gets to pitch, but the recent past is on Google. Izzy is inspired by Ronald's talk with Toie to create a new thing, after some creative inspiration with an old friend, she nails it. Nick looks for his father.

Even with a confession
from Grigory...

Phil Rask!

-What do you need?
-Tell me.

There is still some baggage...

if anyone were to look into
the money trail.

So, you think Nick Talman
should take the fall?

I finally found that warrant.

Thank you, again,
for what you did for me.

Was I supposed
to let you rot in prison?

You're still like a son to me.

Are there meetings
set up with investors?

-It's all in motion.

Mr. Fein's gonna have
to pass on this one.

I have not been convicted
of anything.

This is a smear campaign.

Alice, do you know
where he is?


Hey, what's
wrong with you?

I was this close.

I almost killed him.
I almost shot him.

The neighborhood
lookin' to me now.

They're looking to me to keep their
bellies full, keep their pockets full.

I got an idea.

One a 'em Little River jits
was talking about

how they're all getting
on this Dark Net thing

instead of standing
on corners.

I ain't trying to have
the feds up in here.

I think there's people who
can, like, secure our shit.

Who can make it so that
nobody knows who we are.

I know a girl
who could do that.

I need you to make it
so I can travel.


I'm gonna find him
for you.

I see. Right.

How about you just tell me
where he is?

I don't know where he is.

I'm gonna find him.
I know I can find him.

Right. So, you're just
gonna bring him back here,

like a good little dog?

I would bring you
a severed head

if it would clear my name.
Can't do that, Nick.

Can't put
a severed head on trial.

Just let me find him.

How do I know you won't
just, disappear yourself?

I'm not trying
to run for my life,

I am trying to get it back.

All right.

you take me to his front
door, we got a deal.

I was starting to think I'd find you
and South Beach dead back here.

It's been
a minute, girl.

Is your family
pulling through?

Wouldn't know.

It's your people, girl.

You gotta be there
for your people.

All right, look.

I ain't gonna fun and act like I
know what you're going through.

I ain't got no idea.

But Nick told me
what went down with...

With golden boy.

What are you doing here?

I need a favor.

All of a sudden,
these folks,

they're interested
in our real estate.

Folks with money.

Business has been cut
in half the last month.

We've been hearing these jits,
couple of hoods over,

they've been pulling
extra money

down on the Dark Web
on that Tor shit.

You know about that shit?

'Course I know about Tor.

That's... That's right.

What do you know
about that shit?

Can we trust that
to move product?

It depends.

You know the government
started it?


Feds funded that shit.

They've been on it
since the jump.

Give me that.

Ain't no way to make
that shit more secure?

People have been
writing forks for a minute.

What's "forks"?

Just different variations
on the same network.

Better encryption.

You know how to get
ahold of one of those?

I don't know, dude.
Google it, download it.

You're being seriously
helpful right now, girl.

What do you want me
to do, Ronald?

You want me
to come to your house

and give you computer lessons?

Go see your family, Isabelle.

That shit
is way bigger than you.


Thank you.

So, the DOJ is trying to mount the
strongest possible case against Talman,

but with his father
on a limb...

We're not here
to talk about Nicholas,

we're here
to talk about Isabelle.

She is becoming
a problem again.

She tried to shoot Alex.

When you say "tried"...

She put a gun to his head
in the middle of our campus.

Yeah. Did you call
the authorities?

I need you to put
a leash on her.

I don't know. I think you should call
the police. It sounds pretty serious.


Our man was not sitting
behind bars for his health.

No, of course not. But I
castrated Talman at your request

because that I can do.

You want evidence to go
missing, I can do that, too.

You want me
to look the other way

while you funnel rubles into your
Sunny Isles condo development,

I will gladly oblige because we
have an agreement, you and I.

But I'm not a babysitter,
it's not part of the deal.

Do you ever wonder what your life would
have been like if you just left Miami?

Before you came to us.

How things might have been
different for you?

Listen, I can
take care of this, okay?

I just thought
it might be more effective

to send the FBI agent
with whom she's so familiar.

Or I can send my baby brother
to take care of it.

Your choice.


-Hey, Mom.

Your father and I, we
were just watching the game.

I'll get you something.

How are you doing, Dad?

It's a good game,
we're up.

It's exciting.

You hungry?

-No. Thanks.



You know that bullet
was meant for me, right?

I just made that pork
tenderloin last night.

It's in the fridge,
if you're hungry.

-I'm gonna take this.
-What, mija?

I gotta go.

Yo, Ronny.

What's up, man?

Yeah, you good?

Am I?

So, what you got?

Remember when you snatched
me up outta school?

Took me to our local beach.
You remember that?

-You still remember that?
-Got me that snow cone.


'Course I remember that shit.
First snow cone I ever had.

You ain't paid for that shit.
Hell no.

See? Look at you.

We grew up together.
58th Terrace, baby.

So, you know what
we got to lose, then?

So I got to thinkin', man...

maybe we can work something out.

Y'all keep a cool
on our corners,

turn a blind eye,
let us do our thing,

we keep shit peaceful,
for real.

Shit, Ronny. You don't
understand what's happening?

When's the last you been
to the 58 T?

It's just rows of
townhouses popping up.

And then, you got
Cherelus's new shit.

Of course, I know that.

Why do you think
I'm talking to you?

You know, there was a time where
we'd scratch each other's back.

But now, with all
this shit going down,

those orders are coming down
from much higher up now.




I'll give you 5% of everything
that we pull in here.

No, man.


Nigga, you trippin'.

You can't buy this shit, man.

Not no more.

Holler at your boy.

-Hey, you're doing great.
-You're doing great.

Keep up the good work.


I need to talk to you.

Won't take a second.

Hey, look,
I'm here for your safety.

-My safety?

Listen to me. Listen.

Whatever you tried with Alex, you
know what these people will do.

So forget about them. Stay away.
Live your goddamn life.

Live my life?


Is that what you think
I should do,

live my goddamn life?

My sister was always
the good one.

Nice, big heart,
all that shit.

I had a family, they cared
about me, they put up with me,

and I was too proud
for all of it.

But Delfia...

all she wanted was the
best for everyone else.

All she ever wanted was for
everyone else to be happy,

while you only think about
what's good for yourself.

Arresting Nick, coming here
to tell me to sit still.

I think this might be
what is best for you...

getting a young girl killed.

Even murdering someone, right?

I'm so sorry,
that case was cleared.

Big misunderstanding.

I have a daughter, and I...

That's a shame.

Yes, Queen?

-I'm surprised you answered.
-Yeah, well...

good decisions have never really
been my forte, heave they?

Yeah, well,
I need to get messy.



Whatever you need to do to sort
your head out, Alex, do it fast.

This new project is too
important to the success of...

She put a gun... right here.

Do you have any idea
what that's like?

Agent Rask is dealing with it.

-"Dealing with it"?

So not like
with her sister, then.

-Those were my brother's orders.
-Doesn't matter, Vera.

She blamed me.
You get that?

You... I agreed to be
the face of this company,

but when you pull
shit like that...

So, quit.

You can leave today.

But you'll leave
the houses and the cars,

the nightclub, not to
mention all that adulation.

-Hi, Queen.

It's been a minute.

You look well.

-You don't.
-Thank you.

So you needed to
come over and -Yes.


Come on.

Juan, this is Izzy.
Izzy, this is Juan.

What's up?

Juan is mad at me.

I'd give you a tour
of the place

but I know you wouldn't
give a shit, so...

-Place looks legit.
-Thank you.

We got it
on a foreclosure.

We need to take out
a second mortgage, though.

-Times are tough.

It's a little more
hardcore than that.

I won't ask.

Cheers, mama.

I was very sorry
to hear about your sister.

I was gonna call, but...

It's a tough time... for you.

I'm gonna do my best
not to be cunty

about our past
and how you screwed me.

So we'll bury the hatchet
for a little while.

And what we have here...

I invite you
to peruse and partake

of our bountiful supply.

Where shall we start?

I think
you should ask Freddy....

Freddy, where shall we start?

With the cocaine.

I'll go.

Listen to me.

It's okay, son.

It's okay.

It's okay.

Yes, that's it.

She wasn't going to come until
I told her Chris was cooking.

I know we do.

Ruth, let me
call you back. Okay.

Hi. Twice in one week.

What's going on?..

Okay, I don't wanna scare you.


What's wrong? Alice, I'm
really worried about him.

There's some people
that he owes.

-Yeah, dangerous people.

My God.

And the thing is,
they're gonna find him.

They always find who they're
looking for, these people.

And right now,
he's just a sitting duck.

If I don't find him first...

Alice, I don't know
what's gonna happen.

I don't know what's
gonna happen to him.


That's in Panama.

It's a little private
place he bought us.

Surprised me on our honeymoon.

Can't remember
exactly where it is.

Maybe two hours
outside of Panama City.

How do you know
that this is where he went?

Because he asked me
to go with him.

Toussaint's always been
such an amenable student.

At this age,
it's not uncommon

for a boy to, maybe,
test boundaries,

whether it's to get a rise out
of classmates or impress a girl.

And we're sorry.
You know, both of us are.

We just appreciate
that you care.

You know,
we'll talk to him.

It's not about what he said to Mr.

That's not why I called.

What concerns me,
what concerns his teachers,

is his affect.

For the past few months, he's
been considerably withdrawn.

Has there been anything
different at home?

Anything we should know about?

No, not really.
He's just...

a teenage boy.

Hey, Queen.

I thought
I might've killed ya.

This close.

What are you doing over there?

Just one of
my new little projects.

It's a virtual server firm
kinda thing.

I'm learning
with some boys in Armenia.


South Korea.

Using individual PCs as a
decentralized data storage.

Also, inter-continental network.

Look at you.

Maybe you should try...

You should get yourself
another pet, Izz.

Does wonders.

Do you need
a ride or something?

Hola. Bien. Gracias.

Do you have...

I need to get
a rental car.

Okay, great.
Thank you.

And then, also,
is there a good realtor,

or a realty office nearby?


-Hi, there.
-I'm sorry.

-You know, I'm sorry.
-Hello, hello.

I'm sorry to interrupt you.

Quick question for you...
Can I help you?


A friend of mine was visiting
here not too long ago.

Stayed at a wonderful
little town.

He loved it, told me
to check it out, except...

this guy doesn't remember
the name of it.

So I was just wondering,
by any chance,

does that landscape
look familiar to you?

Almost looks like La Enea.

La Enea?

Down a ways southwest.

Southwest? Okay.


If not La Enea,
definitely close.

Would you mind showing
me where that is?

No, no, I don't.

Okay. -Come here. Over here.
I will show you in the map.


-Here you are, Panama City.

And then, here is La Enea.



No? No?


Excuse me?

Have you seen this guy around?
Does he come in here at all?

He's a little older than that.



Yeah. Yes, that's my father.
That's my father.

Si. Do you know
where he lives?

Do you know where,
donde su casa?

You go out.
Yes, yes.

Then you turn
to, left.

Yo, don't run.

Slow down.

What's up, baby?

What the hell's this?

Found it
on the door this morning.

You need to call Ronny.

Maybe I should talk to Jules.

You know, he and I
used to date, junior year.

So, what are you gonna do,
offer up that ass?


I know that ass make a
man do a thing or two.

Ain't that right?

You think
I've gotten weak, Tam?

I think you're smart.

Sometimes too smart.

Jey will start merking cops,

taking land.


And that's what you think
I should be doing?

I think you should do whatever you
think is right for our family.

And that boy in there,
he needs his father right now.

-I'm going.

-Open the door.

Ronny, I did it.

You on something, girl?

Check it out.
Ronny, who's here?

Tam this is Izzy.
Izzy, this is Tam.

-What up?
-Hey, nice to finally meet you.

Dude, remember, last week you were talking
to me about Tor and moving product?

Yeah, let me...
Hold on a second.

I was thinking...

Why the hell is she here
at this hour?

How do you find your way onto the
Dark Net that's 100% anonymous?

I mean...
I know, baby.

Just let me see, okay?
Hold on a second.

How do you do it?

-How do you do it?

Just keep it down.
I got a kid sleeping.

Boom! Then it hits me.
You don't.

You don't
because it's impossible

unless you create
your own Dark Net.

Are you sure
you ain't on something?


-Your own Dark Net?
-I already did.

Come here.

Come here.

So, this is us
on the network.

Well, I'm the only person
on the network right now,

but I created a software that you can
download or copy onto any other device.

It's just like Tor, it gives
you access to the Dark Net.

But it's my Dark Net.
I call it ArakNet.

So, you know, what a network is,
it's a bunch of computers

talking to each other
at the same time.

That's basically
what the Internet is.

It could be two computers, it
could be two million computers.

All that matters is that it has a
platform. I created that platform.


Even if the NSA
had our software,

they couldn't identify your
IP address or your identity.


So, we can
use this right now?

Well, you can't
use it right now.

I'm the only person
on the network.

You gotta get more people
on the network.
