Suspicion (2022–…): Season 1, Episode 6 - Episode #1.6 - full transcript

The suspects prepare to flee, but each must decide which way to run. Vanessa shares a secret with Scott. Katherine does client damage control.

Kate? There you are.

You're supposed to be sleeping.

Every single client, Martin.
They hacked every single client.

And we've reached out
to every single client.

Who the fuck is
doing this to us?

We'll get through it.

Will we?

Alice called.

She said we specialize in
keeping people out of the news,

yet we've been the
only story for days.

It's her job to worry.

Then she needs a raise.

She wants to know
about Cresswell.

He is who we thought he was.

Come on. Come on,
Dora. Good girl.

Dora. Dora!



There's been no official comment

following the latest twist in
the Leo Newman kidnapping case.

After the coordinated hack on
clients of PR giant Cooper Newman,

messages urging Leo's mother,
Katherine, to "tell the truth,"

have appeared on digital
signs and billboards

on both sides of the Atlantic.

There's also no comment on the
man believed to be Eric Cresswell,

who again appeared on the
hacker's most recent video demand.

Do we know exactly what
time they went off-grid?

…It seems pressure
will continue to build…

No, because they weren't
under surveillance.

…and address the
kidnappers directly…

Unless UK and US forces
working on the case

make a breakthrough
in locating Leo.

Let me call you after.
All we have is the DB.

- Okay, anything else? Okay.
- It's good. Yes, it's still here.

I'll call you back later.

- What do you have?
- Confirmation that the cottage

was the UK residence of the
man found dead at the bridge.

Any confirmed ID?

Samuel Brolin,

according to the neighbor
and the utility companies.

But the property is owned
by a company in Israel.

So it's an alias. So what, what
else is the neighbor saying?

- "Why the hell didn't you come sooner?"
- And why didn't we?

Because the call was only urgent when
the address had been linked to our body.

But he gave positive IDs?

On Tilson and McAllister, yes. But
he didn't see any of the others.

They burned out his vehicle
when they abandoned it

but SOCO have blood in
Brolin's car and in the house.

We don't know whose yet.

It's a hell of a lot more
than we have here though.

It still is pretty clear
what happened here.

Oh, yeah?

They were trying to get out of the
country and something went wrong.

Based on what evidence?

- We're at an airfield.
- But we don't know if they were.

Let alone if they planned
to get on a plane.

For God's sake. They're running!

And even if they were here, it
wasn't necessarily by choice.

We know Tilson met up with
McAllister at some point,

plus we know Monique wasn't
even part of the kidnap gang.

Maybe that's why she's dead.

You really think Natalie
Thompson would be party to that?

Maybe she lost the argument.

What I really think is you have
underestimated these people

right from the beginning.

- And you, maybe.
- What's that?

I'm ex-military, Scott. I have
seen operations like this before.

This scene's been cleaned. There's
no shell casings, no tire marks.

There are bullet holes in the
walls and the floor, but no blood

- apart from Monique's.
- What's your point?

You wanted them deported
from the beginning,

then you went over my head
to get surveillance pulled.

Because I knew that Tilson would
be trying to skip the country!

Look, I understand you feel responsible,
okay, but I am FBI, not CIA.

You seriously think I sent a
rendition team to snatch these people?

If I had, they'd have been
in a dark site hours ago.

We don't have time for this.

They wouldn't be in some
goddamn country cottage.

They did this. Not us!
Hey, we're talking!

Should we find them?

The next step is getting
passports, so I'll need photos.

Hey, can I take
'em? I can take 'em.

Well, I suppose we should
let him make himself useful.

Still not sure what he
brings to the party.

Well, with all due respect, you're not
exactly the most approachable person.

Whereas I can talk to people.

People like to talk to me.
People tend to like me.

- I don't like you.
- Well, you're the exception.

Does anybody like him?


Yeah, I like him.

Who found this car
that we just stole?

Once the pictures are done, you
three get the next train to London.

And I need 80 grand in
clean money by 10:00 a.m.

Send instructions to this number
via the app I've specified.

- By 10:00?
- Are you nuts?

Don't ask questions you don't
wanna hear the answer to.

- You hacked Cooper Newman PR.
- Yeah, that took weeks.

You asked to come. Wanna get
to Martin Copeland or not?

- Okay.
- So, figure it out. Ten o'clock.

Don't let me down.

We rendezvous at 1530
in Battersea Park, okay?

- What about me?
- You're coming with me.

- Why?
- 'Cause I don't trust you.

Now, you'll all be tempted to
contact your people. Don't.

Every risk you take now puts me
at risk. So do as you're told.

Or one way or another, you'll never
see your loved ones again. All right?

Now, when we get to London, pick
up new outfits, change your hair.

If we're gonna make it through an
airport, we all need to look different.

Now, run it once more. Quickly.

- Always be the gray man.
- Or woman.

Don't stand out or
act out of character.

Be in a couple. Couples
get stopped less.

Especially when they're arguing.

Always have an
objective in mind.

Anything but running
from the police.

Don't be first or last. You're
more likely to be remembered.

Try to make out like you're
part of a larger group.

Don't make eye contact. Don't
get into stupid arguments.

Anybody questions you, be
generic in your replies

and have someone
you know in mind.

You'll remember details.

And always remember,

we think that other people
are interested in us,

but really they're only
interested in themselves.

So, act natural. Try
not to show nerves.

You'll be amazed at what
you can get away with.

What exactly is the truth
the kidnappers are demanding?

If Katherine Newman knows,
she's not letting on.

A popular support for the Tell the
Truth movement appears to be building.

Yesterday evening, an anonymous
group hacked advertising screens

on the London Underground.

This was outside Cooper Newman's head
office in Chicago a few hours ago.

There have been similar acts of
vandalism reported across the country

and, indeed, worldwide

as the Tell the Truth message
increasingly becomes a demand.

Vandalism. Hacking. They
never win public sympathy.

It's pretty ironic they're demanding
the truth while wearing masks, huh?

Alice was right to be worried.

We both know how
bad the optics are.

Hey, there's a hell of a lot
of positive comment online.

I know. You asked Caitlin
to show me, and she did.

She didn't tell me that most
of the content was generated

by people working for us.

She didn't need to.

We're at war here, Kate.
Same strategies apply.

I get it.

You were calling IOP Energy.
Well, what did Amy say?

That she'll only speak with you.

Well, I'm not leaving New
York. Not without Leo.

If she wants to see
me, she can come here.

She arrives this afternoon.

Even if Cresswell
is still out there,

he's worked pretty hard to
stay off the map for 25 years.

What about his paper?

Nobody has access to that.


You have to trust me, Kate. This
was all dealt with years ago.

If he can be found, we
better get there first.

So how'd you get into
your line of work?

I mean, I know you were
in the army, but what,

were you military or
paramilitary? Or...

Can you at least tell me which
junction we're gettin' off at?

I'd like to look
out for the exits.

Nope? Okay.

Listen, Sean.

My dad hates me, but I'm
very close with my mom

and I'd like to tell her that
I'm okay before we leave.

- So, would that be something I...
- Stop talking or I'll shoot you.

Put Reuben on speaker.

- Sir?
- Where are you?

Heading back to base. The
scene was completely clean.

I've had an update from
forensics at the cottage.

Fingerprint matches
for all five suspects.

This is party line, sir.

Hi, it's Scott.

Hi, Scott. They also
have two sets of bloods.

One for Monique Thompson,
the other is Eddie Walker.

Well, we're covering the hospitals. Any
more on the guy who owned the house?

Inquiries are out with
agencies worldwide.

But our priority has to be
finding the five suspects.

Agreed. Stay in contact.

Well, if they're together,
they should be easier to track.

Not as easy as if we kept
them under surveillance.

We are now arriving
at Didcot parkway.

Change here for
services to Hereford,

Banbury and Oxford.

If you are leaving us here…

How's it going?

All right. I'm in the offshore
account. I've got the money.

Now the tricky part.

The fuck?

What is she doing?

ANPR picked it up a few
miles outside London.

- Turned off before the next checkpoint.
- That could be Tilson.

But is that McAllister?

Can't be sure.

We've got eyes out for
the car all over London,

plus ARVs in plain clothes
doing a street search.

It makes sense they split up.

- We got the airports covered?
- And private airfields.

They won't get out of the
country without being spotted.

How'd you get five convincing
passports this fast?

There's nothing you can't
get as long as you can pay.

Aadesh won't let us down.

I've never seen anybody like him
when it comes to computers. He's...

These guys are dangerous, so I
need you to not talk right now.

- Right. Yeah. I can do that.
- I mean, at all.

Yeah, I completely understand. I
was just wondering where exactly...

Can you...


You must be desperate.

Who is this with you?

Who is he?

Nobody. Don't worry about him.

Not the phone.


£20,000. I hope that's
why you're here.

I've got what I owe and
more. And a shopping list.

He says he has the
money he owes in full.

He also wants five UK
passports with American ESTAs.

Plus clean cash in
sterling and dollars.

I'll also take a tracker if you have
one. And I need it all within the hour.

Told you I'd be back, Masoud.

You fucking scum.

- What are you doing?
- I'm building a farm.


You know how long we
have to do this, Aadesh,

and you're playing a game.

No. I have to build a farm
to access the marketplace.

What are you talking about?


So I'm moving your
cash into this game.

I buy in-game credits, then transfer
the account details to someone else,

and they sell those credits
online for clean money.

But first, I have
to build a farm.

I'm guessing that what you're
doing right now isn't legal.

Natalie, every minute that we stay on
this train, the less innocent we are.

You understand that, right? We're
gettin' deeper and deeper in.

Now, there is still a chance
that people may understand

everything we've done until
now, but money laundering?

Going to America?
What are we thinking?

Look at who we're trusting.

Eddie's like, "Sean can't
afford to kill you."

You hacked CNPR. Even you
don't know what you know.

You're like R2-D2 in Star Wars
carrying the Princess Leia hologram.

You're too valuable to kill."
But I don't wanna be valuable.

Not as a droid, anyway.

I want to be a successful
businessman. A father, a husband.

You don't have to decide
about New York yet, Aadesh.

But you do have to get
that money to Sean. Now.

Shit. Signal's dropped out.

Apologies, ladies and gents.

It might be slow-going
for a little while.

I'll let you know what's happening
as soon as someone tells me.

Did she make you
use the safe word?

Yeah, she did.

Thank you.

- Just gonna grab a cup of tea, okay?
- Okay, yeah.

Come here.

You look… different.

Nope. Bad luck. Still me.

She swears a lot. I like her.

I know. Heather's cool.

You're nervous.

There's stuff
everywhere about you.

I know.

Is it true?


But I'm not gonna tell
you what to believe.

I just don't want anything
bad to happen to you.

Photos are shit…

Sorry, what's that?

He's saying he's not sure
it's worth taking the risk.

Extra five thousand…

We need an extra 10,000.
That's 75 in total.

And this time you get nothing before
we get the money. You have it?

- Problem?
- No problem. No.

Just need a few
minutes. That's all.

- I've got to go away.
- How long?

I don't know.
Hopefully not long.

Where to?

I can't tell you that. But I
want you to remember one thing.

Whatever happens,
whatever anybody says…

You're the best thing
I ever did, Daisy Duke.


Just be yourself. Okay?

There's nothing to be scared of.

I just want you to promise me
one thing. That wherever you go…

You won't bring me
back a snow globe.



I love you so much.

Okay, go back to your friends.
And not a word to your dad.


Thank you.

There is no money…

We know he's a liar…

And his face is
all over the news!

English lessons still going
well over there, Masoud?

He worries people have
seen you come here.

They didn't.

Is there a reward?


Make them not so
easy to recognize.

Wait! Wait! The money's
coming, I swear.

Just give us half an hour.

Just give us half an hour.


You two follow me.

Wait in here.

Hey, dude, listen,
back there I... I re...

Who the fuck are you?

- I've already told you.
- What kind of a student speaks Iranian?

A languages student.

You said you're
studying history.

And my ex was doing oriental
studies. You're hurting me.

Yeah. So your ex made you
learn Iranian, did she?

Yes. It's actually Farsi.

I bought us 30 minutes.

I bought us 30 minutes.

You still not sure what
I bring to the party?

What do you think's gone
wrong with the money?

Maybe she never had it. Maybe
they went to the police.

Gone to... No, they
wouldn't have done that.

- Still no Wi-Fi?
- Please stop asking me that. Please.

I was thinking…

When we press send, if we do…

He doesn't actually
need us, does he?

Ladies and gentlemen, sorry for
the delay to your service today.

We will shortly be arriving into London
Paddington, our final destination.

We're back.


You got my money?

Not yet. It's coming.

Wait! Wait!

Wait, wait, wait! Was that you?

Was that you?

Was that your phone?

Sean, check the phone.

Check the phone.

- It's here.
- Show me.

The money's here.

If you wanna call your ma,
they'll have a burner you can use.

Just keep it short, all right?

One more thing.

There's a car parked a few streets away.
I need to trade it for something smaller.

If you see something
that doesn't look right,

speak to a member of staff

or call the British
Transport Police on 61016.

See it, say it, sorted.

We apologize for the
disruption caused today

by technical issues with
our departure boards.

Please listen for
further announcements.

On behalf of Network Rail, we'd like to
apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Jump on.


- Any news on Cresswell?
- Nothing on his current whereabouts.

But we've had multiple possible
sightings of Chopra and McAllister,

but nothing confirmed.

Uniform are checking them all.

- And Tilson and the car?
- Nothing yet.

- Ma'am?
- Yeah?

- Lydia Thompson is in reception.
- She's been informed, right?

She wants to hear it from you.
Says it's your responsibility.

- We're kind of busy right now.
- Is that what I should tell her?


Joe, it's me.

All right, I know you say

that I never listen, but by law,

my legal representative's calls
can't be intercepted, can they?

That's right.

Okay. I need you to tell Mum

to meet me at Dad's
place in half an hour.

Please, Joe. I'll never ask you
for anything again, I promise.

I'm sorry.

So when the thieves
all left, Ali Baba…

So very slowly, Ali Baba
went towards the cave.

But the door wouldn't move.

He tried to move it himself with his
hands, but it just would not move.

The magic words. The magic
words were, "open sesame."

And he had to walk really,
really slowly because…

It was so, so dark.

He had to be careful
and walk slowly…

- You can't be here.
- I had to see you.

I'm lucky to still have this
job. They're watching all of us.

Even the NCA won't
know it's library day.

I'm getting all sorts
of people calling me.

Is that why you
stopped using my name?

Aadesh, you don't
even look like you.


Whatever comes out of
this, I want you to know.

I need you to know.

This isn't a lie.

Me and you. This was
always real. It still is.

I'm still me, Son.

I'm still me.

And I still love you.

This is the part where you
say that you love me too.

And that we should run
away together. Right now.

I believed in you, Aadesh.

And I loved you.

I don't believe anymore.

I'm sure she's safe. They'll
be picking her up right now.

Mrs. Thompson, apologies for
keeping you waiting so long.

Joe said you might
have found Natalie?

Sorry, but no. No, we're
still trying to locate her.

I'm so sorry about Monique.

We both are.

You sure you don't want
me to come with you?

If we both go, she'll think
we're worried. I'll be fine.

Tell the truth! Tell the
truth! Tell the truth!


New York traffic. Sorry.

Under the circumstances, I'm
grateful for any time at all.

I always have time for you. It's
good to see a friendly face.

I've got three plus
the stepchildren,

and I can't imagine what
you're going through right now.

The last thing I wanna do
is put more pressure on you.

- But you're concerned. I understand.
- You know Daddy's not a well man.

You know how fond of him I am.

I don't mean to sound presumptuous,
but I've always felt protective of him.

Of both of you.

I used to be jealous of you.

I thought you were the
daughter Daddy wished he'd had.

I happen to know Charlie
couldn't be prouder of you.

You know, I hear CEOs all
the time comparing their job

to turning around an oil tanker.

And there you are,
literally doing just that.

But you're the one who knows
where the bodies are buried.

I really hoped this was
about the ambassadorship.

Who's Eric Cresswell?

I don't have all
the answers, Amy.

But you know how bad it could be.
I'm not a little girl anymore.

How much has Charlie told you?

When I took over IOP
Energy, Daddy was clear

he'd only tell me what I needed to
know to take the business forward.

That way we could maintain
plausible deniability.

Can't think where
he got that advice.

I know enough to know that the
truth can't be allowed to come out

under any circumstances.

Then you know everything
there is to know.

I've put my life into shifting this
business to clean energy, Katherine.

Renewables, ethical practice.

We can't afford to be
the bad guys anymore.

Daddy was your
first-ever client.

I don't need to be
reminded what I owe him.

And I know how loyal you are, but
I also know what Leo means to you.

Tell Charlie not to worry.

We're gonna find Eric
Cresswell and Leo.

We're gonna contain
this. It's what we do.

I hope so.

How come you got to choose
where we went shopping?

I look rubbish.

Nat, hey. Nat.

I almost didn't recognize you.

That's the point, innit?

- Where did you go?
- Shopping.



I wasn't sure you'd show up.

I'm R2-D2. You need me.

- Any sign of Tara?
- No.

All right, since I didn't get
any say in the clothes situation,

can you at least
tell me why here?

This park doesn't
have security cameras.

That's why I chose it.

You okay?

- I don't wanna talk about it.
- Did you dump the computer?

Is that all you have to say?

Do you know what he had
to do to get that money?

He built a fucking farm.

I said ten o'clock. So
where's the other one?

Don't know. She got off the
train before we hit London.

Okay, then let's do this
quick. Under the table.

Passports, tickets, cash.

Use it to get a night
in a cheap hotel.

Fly separately.

We meet 10:00 a.m.
tomorrow, Eastern Standard.

Washington Square Park.

I'm flying via Reykjavik?

We're flying three different routes,
from three different airports.

She's here.

Wow. Do any of you
do anything on time?

Tara, where've you been?

You two should go.

Don't tell me, I'm with you.

I need to talk to you.

Go for a walk. Stay in sight.

Black coffee please. What old…

I came to tell you myself
so that you'd believe me

when I say I won't betray you.

I can't go through with this.

How was Daisy?

- You knew I'd go.
- Yeah, I knew you'd all go.

I just wanted to make
sure you were careful.

I thought I could do it.

I thought I was strong
enough to leave her...

When I was seven, my dad
was taken by masked men

who said that he was an
informer for the Brits.

And they gave him a choice.

Admit it, be kneecapped.

Or deny it and die.

He denied it.

I blamed him for that
for a long, long time.

Until I realized that he was
setting an example for me.

When you give a kid that,
you won't need much more.

Even after your ma decides
that she can't carry on.

She killed herself.

What happened to you?

I stayed with my granda.

Till I joined the
army, the British Army,

and I got revenge
for both of them.

And I set an example of my own.

I also need you to keep
an eye on the student.

I'll buy you some clothes
at the airport. Come on.

- We should get back.
- Yeah.


Hey, where'd you serve?

- Sorry?
- Back at the airfield,

you said you were ex-Forces?

Royal Military Police.
Special Investigative Branch.

I can tell you've had to
do that plenty of times.

You handled that really well.

I used to worry that I'd
get too accustomed to it,

but never do.

Nope. Last time I had to do
it I had to tell a mother

that her twelve-year-old
son was never coming home.

Was that the Denver case?

I read about it before you came.

Well, that explains
why you don't trust me.

- No. No.
- Yeah, it was my fault. We had the guy.

And I let him go.

I'm sorry.

My point is that when I tell you
that Monique's death is not on you,

I know exactly what
I'm talking about.

Scott, I need to
tell you something.


Aadesh Chopra.

Wow, he did a pretty good job.
But that's definitely him, right?



Well, if he's getting on a plane,
it would make sense they all are.

How do you want to do this?


Mum, I can't really talk,

but I wanted to let you know
that there's no need to worry.

I'm all right.

I'm going away with some friends, so
you might not hear from me for a while.

But I'll be in touch.
Trust me. Okay?

I love you. Bye.

That was… Eddie Walker.

Real name Liam McKenna.

We recruited him
out of drug squad.

He's got talent but not much experience.
Only done a few bits and pieces so far,

but I think he's
perfect for this.

- Almost.
- He's tasked with infiltrating the gang,

finding out which of them is involved
and hopefully taking us to Leo.

You faked it all? His
arrest? Your interview?

And you couldn't
trust me with this?

His message arrived around the
same time as Lydia Thompson.

He has a phone, but he's
obviously being closely watched.

In the message he's telling us that
he's in control, that it's working.

But our risk assessment didn't
include international travel.

As soon as they're in the air,
they're out of NCA jurisdiction.

So if we let them through...

If we let them through?

It's gonna have to be your call.

Passports, please.
Boarding passes.


Okay. Understood.

Okay, wait. Help me get
my pitch straight here.

We've identified four potential
kidnappers, possibly terrorists,

one of whom we know is
a multiple murderer,

who you knowingly let
fly out of the UK,

all heading toward US airports.

And our play once they
land is, we let them run.

But I shouldn't worry about
it because you put trackers

in their hand luggage and
we have an asset with them

who has barely a year
of field experience

and a cell phone that
can be used as a tracker

as long as it's switched on.

Did I miss anything?

Yes, actually. Tilson for one
will already be suspicious.

Put them under standard surveillance,
and he'll smell it in seconds.

- Scott, help me out here.
- We know there's a risk, sir.

One that ends careers.

But look at the risk that
they're taking. Why go back?

We know they're not dumb, so there's
gotta be a pretty good reason.

Now, we could pick 'em up. Sure. But
that doesn't get us any closer to Leo.

Fuck's sake.

I know New York's a little behind London
in terms of the number of public cameras

we can point at them, but we're
gonna be watching all of them.

And, sir, we need to
know where they're going.

Needed some air.

Yeah, me too.

Two and the easy
lay-up for Jamal Brown.

The second time in this half.

Perrosi to Bradley at
the top of the key.

Bradley, back to Perrosi. He's
got a man open underneath.

There's a little dish in
behind the head. Slam, no look.

Slam dunk number 14.

Maurice Wilson. Beautiful play.

58-56 Icebergs. And they
dunk the ball again.

Do you want to get in
with him or shall I?

He's all yours.

See you in the morning.

Big day tomorrow.

All set?
