The Blacklist (2013–…): Season 4, Episode 2 - Mato (No. 66) - full transcript

Red enlists Tom and the Task Force to help track a notorious bounty hunter who may know Alexander Kirk's next move. Meanwhile, Liz struggles to decide if Kirk is trustworthy.

Alexander: He won't find you. Reddington.
If that's what you're hoping for, or worried about.
Tom's alive. You don't have agnes.
I'm not worried about anything.
I won't apologize for trying to restore my family.
Even if it means destroying mine.
Reddington, he took you from me.
And you hate him for it.
For stealing your child.
I know how that feels.
You would have been with agnes now if you hadn't tried to escape.
But then again, so would you.
(cellphone rings)
tell me.
I got the girl.
Alexander: Find a way across the straits,
then contact my office in the keys. Do it quickly.
Agnes has been away from her mother too long.
Don't kill her.
Alexander: You're gonna kill us!
The child.
liz and agnes. Reddington: No.
Please, assist mr. Kaplan.
You all right?
(clears throat)
(dembe grunts)
where are they?
In danger.
How did you find us?
Tom: I had aram tracking that car.
Spent the better part of the day stuck in the trunk.
Who was the driver?
Had to be one of kirk's hired hands.
Six foot. Rough trade. Dark skin. Likes western wear.
Mato. I saw his face.
Who's mato?
A finder. A tracker. Killer when necessary.
How do we find him?
I don't know.
You don't know, or you won't say?
We had a mutual friend.
He gave mato his start as a skip tracer.
It was years ago. Little nikos?
I can talk to him. If he knows anything, he'll tell me.
West texas' favorite bail bondsman.
An amarillo institution for 25 years to life.
Dembe, call edward. Tell him to ready the jet.
We're gonna pay a visit to little nikos.
(liz grunts)
(metal creaking)
(water pouring)
excuse me. Sorry.
It's mr. Reddington.
We have two targets, elizabeth keen and agnes keen.
Traveling separate paths to an unknown location.
Constantin rostov, also known as alexander kirk,
fled with elizabeth in a private seaplane
that departed from playa larga less than an hour ago, due west.
Aram: What about agnes?
I have a lead on agnes.
She was abducted by one of kirk's private contractors.
A high-priced tracker known only as mato.
He missed the flight off the island.
Then he's trapped in cuba.
There's no way he'll make it past the pnr
after the international incident you just caused there.
Ordinarily, I would agree with you, agent navabi,
but mato isn't your garden-variety mercenary.
From what I'm told, he's an indian.
Part sioux, part, I don't know what,
son of a shaman.
Mato could sneak up on a deer in a glade and smack it on the rump.
He'll find his way off the island.
We'll notify the seaports, just in case.
Good luck, and let us know what you turn up.
(receiver beeps)
contact customs and border patrol.
They work with the coast guard
to monitor the air and waters around cuba.
Sir, I don't understand why we're going to such extremes...
Agent ressler is on a return flight from cuba.
It's time to set aside your personal feelings
and help out this investigation.
This is my fault.
If anything happens to elizabeth or the baby...
You've got nothing to apologize for.
You tried to help us find a normal life.
I'd take that risk again.
I don't regret trying to get away from you.
Reddington: Of course you don't.
Regret requires age or wisdom.
We were trying to protect agnes.
I guess that didn't work out.
When we get to amarillo, I think
it would be best to do as I say.
Both of you.
Mayday, mayday, mayday. Plane down off the coast of havana.
23 degrees, 52 minutes north.
82 degrees, 49 minutes south.
Mayday, mayday, mayday. Can anyone hear me?
My sat phone. Gone.
(static crackling)
you need to untie me, masha.
Mayday, mayday, mayday. Is anyone there?
(loud clank)
what was that?
You need to know that agnes is safe. She'll be cared for.
You see anything?
One of the pontoons is taking on water. We don't have long.
Untie me.
Masha, I'm your father, you can't let me drown.
Watch me. (static)
we've got every sonar operator in
the miami district working on this.
We launched the search as soon as I received your call.
Samar: Any chance the plane is still in range?
Daly: A light aircraft, flying low and slow, we'll find it.
We monitor two million square miles of ocean from miami.
Agent ressler, welcome back, this is captain daly.
He's our liaison with the us coast guard.
I'm authorized to give you full access to our radar screens.
That seaplane is flying low, won't it avoid detection?
Most radar transmitters are on the ground, aimed at the sky.
Ours float in the sky on balloons, looking down.
They're designed to detect small aircraft,
like the one you described.
If you don't mind me asking, who's on the plane?
A fugitive. A friend.
Daly: Sounds complicated.
When we get inside, let me talk to him. He and I have history.
He and I don't. I'll be more persuasive.
Is that what this has come to?
The chance for you to punish me
by hurting someone I care about?
You are not my concern. Agnes is.
If someone you care about is hurt in
the process of finding her, so be it.
Do you remember what I looked like that night?
Lying in the street, my head torn open,
annie's body in front of me?
You know I don't know what you looked like. I was away.
Right. But he does.
Little nikos sat by my bed in the hospital.
When I healed, he gave me work, a reason to push on.
He's a decent man.
I'm only here to serve you today because of his kindness.
You may speak to him first.
(door bell jingles)
afternoon. Can I help you?
Little nikos, please.
Wish I could oblige, miss...
Mr. Kaplan. An old friend.
Mr. Kaplan, I wish I could oblige,
but nikos is taking a little nap.
Perhaps it's time for a wake-up call.
I'm afraid that's not possible. He's in surgery.
His stomach.
And where might we find his stomach?
Receptionist: I told him he couldn't come in.
Oh, my. Me and my timing.
What the hell is going on?
Is this a lap band?
I knew all those desserts would
catch up with little nikos one day.
I think I see some baklava in there.
Put that down. Helen, get him out of here.
Call building security.
I need your capable team here to wake up your patient.
What? Call security. Right now.
Wake him up. I can't.
We're in the middle of a procedure,
I'd be putting his life in danger.
His life's already in danger. How about yours?
There are no life vests. No inflatable rafts.
We're going to flip.
Our only chance is out there, holding onto the pontoons.
You mean my only chance. You're not going anywhere.
(exhales sharply)
we're not gonna survive unless we trust each other.
I'll never trust you.
We're family. Not reddington. Us.
If you want to hold your child in your arms again,
we need to trust each other.
The coast guard just picked up a brief elt signal
from a light aircraft west of havana,
somewhere in the gulf of mexico.
An elt signal? Are you telling me their plane went down?
It appears that way, sir.
But we have a location for them.
It's not that simple. This elt signal is an older model.
Analog frequency.
No digital signal to carry gps coordinates.
Elts are notoriously unreliable.
Especially if they're submerged underwater.
We've narrowed the search field to 220 square miles.
Sar teams are gearing up now.
I know this is not about me, it is about agent keen,
but I don't know if I have the strength to lose her again.
None of us do.
Stay on it, say a prayer,
and notify me the minute you have an update.
He's awake and in excruciating pain.
I gave him a self-administering morphine drip
to manage his discomfort.
Even that won't be enough unless you
get what you want quickly and leave.
Remember, we're getting what we need, one way or another.
(monitor beeping steadily) (groans softly)
kate. What are you... What's happening?
We only have a minute. Raymond reddington is here.
he wants mato.
(breathing heavily)
tell me how to find mato.
He'll kill you if you don't.
Nikos: He'll kill mato if I do.
I'm not going to hurt you, nikos.
You're a good man. Loyal.
Protective of those who are protective of you.
I admire that in a person.
Unfortunately for you, I'm surrounded by people who don't.
Tom, I'd like to introduce you to little nikos.
The man who's protecting the sociopath
who stole your baby.
Good luck with that surgery, nick.
Don't let go. No matter what, don't let go.
They're looking.
The fbi. The coast guard. They'll find us.
They'll find you, which is enough.
(inhales deeply)
I told you not to let go.
I can help you.
It's too much.
You said we have to trust each other. Do you trust me?
Yes. Then hold on.
They will find us.
They will find us.
This is my little girl.
It's agnes.
I'm gonna put this right here.
Because she's the reason I'm doing this, remember that.
Just take this. That's enough, yeah.
(exhales sharply)
tell me how to find mato.
I can't do that.
Well, you do have guts.
(nikos breathing shakily)
(instrument whirs)
what do you think this does?
(nikos screams and cries)
I'm sorry it had to be nikos.
If there's no sincerity behind your words, don't waste them.
(nikos screaming)
what would you have me say, kate?
Say that you understand.
I didn't just give you my friend as an act of contrition.
I'm not sorry for what I did.
I betrayed you for the same reason I just betrayed nikos,
to keep elizabeth safe.
Just like you asked me to all those years ago,
when you first put her in my arms as a baby girl.
Only now, she has a baby girl of her own,
and your existence in their lives puts them in constant danger.
Say that you understand, or don't say anything at all.
(nikos screaming)
liz: Hey. Stay awake. Stay with me.
Talk to me, uh, tell me about your parents.
What were their names?
(ship horn blows)
Over here! Help!
(horn blows)
(door opens)
I got a phone number and a password.
It's a famous medicine man, I don't know.
You text that name to that number using nikos' cell phone
and mato will show up in person at the bail office.
That's how they do it.
(monitor beeping steadily)
I'm so sorry, nikos.
Oh. Thank you. Thank you.
Uh, he needs medical attention.
First aid. Uh, do you understand?
(speaks spanish)
good, good. Show me. He needs it right now. Right now.
Why did you save me?
Because you know where agnes is.
Is that the only reason?
You need to keep pressure on that leg. You've lost a lot of blood.
I saved you because of agnes.
But also, maybe, because you might be telling the truth.
Me llamo elizabeth keen. I'm with the fbi.
That man was in my custody when our plane crashed.
No. No, no. Uh...
Senor... (whispers) terrorist.
(speaking in spanish)
(shushing) yes.
(speaking in spanish)
do you have a gun?
(speaking spanish)
slow down.
(speaking spanish)
(gunshot) (groans)
I believe he said the pistol is in the toolbox.
(knocks on door) come in.
Coast guard just intercepted a distress call in the gulf.
Some cuban fishing vessel. Keen was on board.
So, she's alive.
You can come in, aram.
Sorry. I just wanted to hear the update,
which is the greatest update ever.
Did you talk to her?
No, but we heard her voice.
The pilot was in the middle
of giving the coordinates when the transmission cut out.
The signal cut out? Why? Could you get it back?
All that matters is that the search teams have a target now.
They're gonna find that boat.
Agent ressler.
The signal. What aren't you telling me?
Keen's voice.
The last thing we heard was her
asking if there was a gun on board.
Honor the sacred.
Honor the earth and everyone who shares it.
Honor the elders.
The four-legged, the two-legged, the wounded ones.
The plant and animal people.
Walk in beauty and balance.
(speaking in russian)
I take photo for facebook, yeah? (chuckles)
you don't want your money?
I need to know that you're gonna
safely deliver that baby to kirk.
His jet is waiting at mia.
Put the girl into kirk's hands only.
(speaking in spanish)
(cellphone chimes)
(motor whirring)
if this man dies...
It'll be your fault. You got him involved.
I need an eta.
Man: Intercept team should reach your position in 20 minutes.
They want to know how many passengers. Over.
Three passengers. And make sure
there's a medical team standing by.
Two passengers, over.
(static hisses)
I know you were lying about believing in me,
but I promise, once we reach our destination,
you'll know that everything I've told you is true.
Of course you believe that, you're a classic narcissist.
You were, what? Abused as a child? Abandoned?
Made to feel powerless?
You must have suffered some sick, traumatic, dark event
to believe that the sick, traumatic, dark things you've done to me
and everyone I care about, could ever result in me loving you.
You're doing fine, maisy.
He should be here any minute.
Sorry about nikos.
You did your job.
I know.
But I didn't mean to...
He knew where my baby was, all right?
That's the only reason I pushed so hard.
Why are you telling me this?
Because he's your friend.
So, you want me to make you feel better?
Everyone wants me to make things easier for them.
That's what I am, after all. The cleaner.
Just forget I brought it up.
In my desire to make life easier
for your baby, I betrayed raymond,
and now he doesn't know what to do with me.
Well, he knows what he has to do,
and he wants me to make it easier for him.
But I won't.
I'm not here to make him feel better,
and I'm not here to make you feel better, tom.
(footsteps approaching)
I need some air.
(maisy humming)
man: Watch yourself!
Man 2: Damn.
(tires screech)
tom: Where's my daughter?
Where's my daughter? Huh? Where is she?
Where's my daughter?
Where is she? Huh? (grunts)
reddington: Tom!
(mato grunts)
let's get out of the heat.
Thank you.
Of course, raymond.
We found your boat near madeira bay. A few miles offshore.
It's being escorted to a nearby marina.
Was there anyone aboard?
(indistinct conversations)
samar: Where's the survivor?
Excuse me? Fbi. We need a minute.
Sir, the woman, the one who was with you, where is she?
(speaking in spanish)
he took her away in a speed boat. Who took her away?
(speaking in spanish)
where the hell are they?
Put romina on the phone. I want agnes to see her mother.
Where is she?
We'll all be together soon.
hi, agnes. Hi.
did you hear that?
We're going to be together soon.
I love you.
Reddington: This will be quick, as I have no time and less patience.
Tell me where alexander kirk took
elizabeth keen and her daughter.
The strong silent type.
You're not doing much to break down stereotypes here.
I'm not afraid of pain.
Or dying, I'm sure.
You know, some years back, I was hiking devils tower
for a bracing dip in the spiritual vortex,
when who did I run into,
but the tribal leader of the lakota nation.
A man of vast responsibility.
He invited me to witness the extreme
version of the sun dance ritual.
Not just anyone can attend the sun dance.
True. And you can't get a table at
the fat duck without a reservation,
but I find, in either case,
a generous donation gets you in the tepee.
I watched a tribal member, much like yourself,
suspend himself from a cottonwood tree
with flesh-hooks through his chest.
Three hours, he dangled,
skin stretched like salt water taffy,
while he left his body to communicate
with the great spirit.
Like you, the man on that tree didn't fear death,
but do you know what terrified him?
The thought of eternity on earth,
trapped in a dark box,
surrounded by rotting flesh, forever.
I hear that's why some native people
leave spirit holes in their caskets to allow their souls
to pass on to the next great hunting ground in the sky.
(cuckoo clock chiming)
after I shoot you, sir,
you will be locked in an airtight, concrete crypt,
unless you tell me what I need to know
before those figures stop dancing.
(music playing)
kirk said they're going to the summer palace.
That's all I know.
Yes, I know the summer palace.
(music continues playing)
(turns off engine)
liz: What is this place?
Alexander: It's yours.
It belongs to you. And agnes, of course.
It's a lovely location to raise
a little girl, don't you think?
The armed goons don't do much for the landscape.
The coercion was necessary and temporary.
All I ever intended to do was show you,
prove to you who you are, who I am.
And then you can choose for yourself.
Like a russian fairy tale.
That's right.
Excuse me, elizabeth. I have much more to show you,
but my physician is waiting for me.
Hello, elizabeth. My name is katja.
You can think of me as the palace keeper.
Palace? The summer palace.
It's what mr. Kirk calls the cottage.
Anything you need during your stay, let me know.
(telephone rings and beeps)
director cooper.
Reddington: I know where elizabeth is, harold.
Where kirk is taking agnes, cape breton island, nova scotia.
Kirk owns a cottage there
where he would go to escape the dreary
summers of novosibirsk.
Are they hurt? Injured?
Reddington: I don't know and I can't find out.
I'm deep in the heart of amarillo, texas.
How quickly can your people get there?
Agents ressler and navabi are flying back from miami.
I can redirect their plane.
I'll send you a location.
I'll handle this quickly.
You always do, kate.
(door closes)
can I get you something else?
Yes, my daughter.
I understand, elizabeth.
I know some of what you've been through,
but little agnes will be here soon.
And when she is here, you will need your strength.
Tell me about kirk. How long have you known him?
I have worked here for nine years.
I took over from my mother.
She worked my entire childhood maintaining the summer palace.
So, you know him well.
No, actually, I don't.
He hasn't visited here in years. It's been too painful for him.
Until now.
This was my bedroom.
Welcome home, masha.
I promised you the truth.
But there was a fire.
I shot my father, I remember.
What's the memory of a small child?
You didn't remember me, or your mother, or this room.
Reddington lied to you, masha.
He told you your father was dead, but thanks to you,
what you did on the water, I'm very much alive.
The stories reddington's told you
about who he is and his connection to you,
he knew you were looking for answers,
and he took advantage of that to re-enter your life.
But the answers you've been looking for are here.
Reddington, he was in love with your mother.
And he is obsessed with you.
It can't be true.
But you know it is.
I'm sorry, I've said too much.
You must be feeling overwhelmed.
I'll go and check on your daughter's arrival.
Do you know why I call this cottage the "summer palace"?
We came here for a vacation one July
and my little princess loved it.
It's been a palace ever since.
(speaking russian)
man: Elizabeth!
(tires screech) (car doors close)
man: Spread out! Come on, let's go!
(man shouts indistinctly)
return fire!
Hands in the air! In the air!
Stand down! Stand down! She's one of ours.
Secure the house. Find kirk.
Find the child.
Man: I got hot.
(birds chirping)
samar: He's gone. And if agnes is with him, she's gone, too.
(radio beeps)
he's waiting for you inside.
Where are we?
Home. Your home.
Let's go.
What is this place?
(exhales sharply)
I'm gonna find her.
stay with the car.
There are places back here that have never borne a human footprint.
53,000 acres of virgin wilderness.
All but one owned by the bureau of land management.
One acre.
A jewel.
A single buildable acre...
Like a flawless diamond set in a sea of emeralds.
The real estate equivalent of a unicorn.
I acquired it some years ago from a family
who had held it in trust for over a century-and-a-half.
You understand, kate, that I...
Have no choice?
Isn't that the speech, raymond? That I know too much?
Every single one of your weaknesses, all your faults,
all your secrets.
I dedicated my life to you.
You entrusted me with everything you value.
Your freedom, your life,
a child.
I have never failed you.
What you see as a betrayal of trust
was actually a fulfillment of your wishes.
To protect your interests. No more, no less.
You presumed to decide what was best for me.
Even if I resolve the anger,
the pain you caused,
I can't trust you.
I'm standing before a stranger.
And yet, I know you believe what
you did was best for elizabeth.
Which is why I brought you here.
You've told me you've always wanted
a pristine, unspoiled place
to live out your days in peace.
So, the acre is yours.
For all eternity.
