The Blacklist (2013–…): Season 8, Episode 13 - Anne - full transcript

Red enjoys a quiet visit with a friend at her home in rural America.

Previously on The Blacklist:

Do you mind if I join you?

I'm Anne.


I don't know, Anne. I think
your life sounds rather balanced.

I like to think it is.

- What do you do?
- I'm a fugitive.

Some people like
to live dangerously.

What do you have in mind?

You helping me finding
a souvenir for my sister.

I know an extraordinary,

tiny, tiny, barely-enough-room-
for-the-both-of-us chocolate shop.

What about North by Northwest?

It's playing at the Village East
tomorrow, midnight screening.

You'll find me waiting for
you under the marquee.

- Raymond.
- Anne, I am so terribly sorry.

I'm not gonna be
able to make it tonight.

Your position in commodities
is strong. Copper, gold.

But the real returns
have been in crypto.

Year-to-date, Bitcoin
has an 800% return.

Your insistence on taking a large
position was insanely prescient.

Must be nice that
getting richer bores you.

- I'm not bored. I'm anxious to leave.
- We have another appointment.

An appointment I'm a
little more concerned

about than the
state of my liquidity.

We're running late.

What do you know
about bridge? The game.

Not the way to cross
from here to there.

Bridge? I don't...

I'm sorry, I was under the
impression that a review

of your investments and
holdings was important.

It is. We anticipate a
significant increase in our need

for available resources
over the next few months.

There. We all have different
interests and priorities, don't we?

For instance, in the morning,

Mr. Zuma likes to start
with the business section,

then move on to the sports.

I like to start with the
funnies and fall asleep.

- Takes me all day to read.
- I like the funnies.

No. He likes the
funnies as well.

But he has an amazing
head for business.

Numbers and trends
and all the rest of it.

Whereas I wouldn't know a
Bitcoin from a subway token.

Well, you wouldn't have to.
Bitcoins aren't a tangible thing.

They aren't?

I wouldn't know.

My investment in Bitcoin was
neither prescient nor insane.

I was just following
Mr. Nakamoto's instructions.

Satoshi said buy, I bought.

Satoshi Nakamoto. You
know him. Who he really is?

Yes. Well, Dembe knows
him better than I. They're like:

Is there anything else we need to
review? We do have a plane to catch.

Uh, well, there's your holdings
in Singapore and the BSE, but...

I'm sorry. You know
Nakamoto? The Nakamoto?

No one knows Nakamoto.

Mr. Cane, we really must be going,
which means you need to be going.

Okay, well, if there's anything
else I can help you with...

Not unless you know something
about bidding or suit management.



Can I tell you what
I'm concerned about?

- Townsend.
- I am so confused.

The more I read, the less
I understand this game.

And that I'm not going
to be there with you.

- Raymond, I'm serious.
- I know. And I love that about you.

But I'll be fine. I...

- I'll be fine.
- No patterns.

You taught me that.

You said it's the first rule of staying
a step ahead of your enemies.

Do something once, it may
go undetected. Maybe twice.

After that, it's a pattern.

- How many visits will this be?
- Five.

I like her.

I like coming home to a port.

Seeing a candle burning in a window,
a smiling face waiting to greet me. I...

I never liked it before.

I like it now.

Did you know that irises are
the state flower of Tennessee?

What's the state
flower of Kansas?

The sunflower.

She grew up with
them. She likes irises.

I should be with you.

You should be with
Raymond Reddington.

When I'm with Anne,
that's not who I am.

It may not be who
you want to be.

But it's always who you are.

- So much for the sexiest man alive.
- Down, girl.

I'm just saying,
I like punctuality.

- Maybe his plane was delayed.
- So why hasn't he called?

I like to make a
dramatic entrance.


Irises. Oh, you're so sweet.

Promise me you'll play nice.

What are you talking
about? I'm a total softie.

I'll put these in water
and make you a sandwich.

- You remember Bran and Lois?
- Yes. Of course.

Hello, Bran, Lois.

- Hello, Ray.
- Hello.

I hope you'll go
easy on me tonight.

You'll do fine. Gin and tonic?

- Yes!
- We've gotten a head start.

I'm sure I'll catch up.

I'm not so sure you will.

Oh. Need a refill.


- So flight delayed?
- Yes.

Seems to be the norm nowadays.

Anne is very trusting.

She thinks because
we live in a small town,

she's got nothing
to be afraid of.

It's why she leaves
her door unlocked.

- It wasn't unlocked now.
- How'd you get in?

Anne gave me a key.

Look... I'm Annie's best friend.

- Yes.
- I want her to be happy.

- That makes two of us.
- Good.

Because if you mess
this up, I'm gonna kill you.


Anyone for Go Fish?

- That's not a bid.
- You're right. It's a cry for help.

- You can't make a bid?
- Crazy Eights?

No? Okay.

I bid one heart?

- One heart.
- That'll do.

- Two diamonds.
- Two spades.


- Pass, I think.
- Pass.

Jack of hearts.

- And now it's my turn again.
- No. No, you're the dummy.

- That's a bit harsh.
- Your hand is the dummy.

- You lay your cards down faceup.
- Thank you.

I'm your partner.

When you're the dummy,
you say good luck back to me.

- It's tradition.
- Good luck, good-looking.

Now you can go get
yourself cake before I eat it all.

Much to everyone's relief.

Kick some ass.

So, Lois, what's it like to be a
police officer in a small town?

I ask because I'm
a true-crime buff.

You are? So am I.

I like the podcasts and the
documentaries on Netflix.

Yes! I love those. I
loved The Staircase.

Queen of hearts from dummy.

I love reading them too.

I first got hooked
on In Cold Blood.

Then Executioner's Song.

I can take that. Ace of hearts.

- I haven't read that one, Ray.
- Oh, you should. Norman Mailer.

Nothing like that
goes on around here.

Thank goodness.
It's a pretty quiet town.

I've got a gun, but I've never
used it. I can't imagine I ever would.

Mm! Smart and sweet
and funny. And she bakes.

I wish.

Cindi made that and brought it
over after we had that fender bender.

That's how you say you're sorry.

Bless Cindi's heart
and her frosting.

Six of clubs.

- King of clubs.
- Seven of clubs.

- Tell me how you two met?
- The nine of clubs from the dummy.

It clearly wasn't at
a bridge tournament.

We met in the park.
Anne was watching birds.

I was watching Anne.

We bonded over a
Cape May warbler.

Then he asked me to go
see North By Northwest

and promptly stood me up.

But he's more than
made up for that since.

We've been having an
ongoing classic film festival.

We started with musical numbers.

- He's asleep long before the end credits.
- Not tonight.

Tonight, we start on Italian
cinema from the 1960s.

No one can sleep through
that zeitgeist of cool.

Not even the dummy.

I have to resolder a wire
on the output connector

for this turntable to work.

I don't suppose you have
a soldering iron, do you?

Uh, no.

I think I'm gonna run
down to the hardware store

and see if I can pick one up.

Take the truck. You don't
wanna waste gas on your rental.

- You know where the keys are.
- I'll have us dancing in no time.

- What?
- Nothing.

No, no, no. What? What?

I'm a straight-as-an-arrow

I was married to one man, my
high-school sweetheart, for 25 years.

I'm in a book club, I go
to church on Sundays.

And somehow I'm in a
relationship with someone

who when he says
"output connector,"

all I can think about is sex.

That's what I always think about
when I say "output connector."

No patterns.

You said it's the first rule of staying
a step ahead of your enemies.

Do you have to go on Monday?

I mean, I know you do, I just...

I wish you wouldn't.

I would do anything to stay.

But you're busy at work.

This is a particularly
fraught time.


Something that I have...

♪ I see no reason... ♪

worked for many years to
build and protect is at risk.

That must be very hard.

I'm sorry. Is there anything
I can do to help you?

- You're already doing it.
- I'm serious.

So am I.

Out there, my life
is so complicated.

And here, it's not.

I wanna do more than help
you set aside your burdens.

I wanna help you carry them.

I can't do that unless
you tell me what they are.



Do you wanna dance?

♪ And if we're
victims of the night ♪

♪ I won't be
blinded by the light ♪

♪ Just call me angel
of the morning Angel ♪

♪ Just touch my cheek
Before you leave me, baby ♪

♪ Just call me angel
of the morning Angel ♪

♪ Then slowly turn away ♪

♪ I won't beg you
to stay with me ♪

It's not like I ran
his fingerprints.

I'm just saying,
I wouldn't mind.

Because he likes true
crime? I like true crime.

All I'm saying is, you
know nothing about him.

I know a lot.

I know how he makes me feel.

I know he's got a
business with problems.

I know when he's here,
those problems go away.

What business? What problems?

I know I'm the overprotective friend
who should mind her own business.

I'm just saying, I have never
met anyone from New York

who wasn't either pushy,
rude or a complete narcissist.

First of all, he's
not from New York.

And, Lois, to the
world, I'm invisible.

But not to him. He sees me.

And I love him for it.

I love him.

Does he know
about the love part?


He does now.

Good morning, ladies.
That coffee smells delicious.

Good morning.

Hungry? I brought muffins.

Thank you, Lois.

But I prefer cereal, the
breakfast of narcissists.

So we can gaze admiringly
at our reflection in the spoon.

I better get on
into the station.


Goodbye, Lois.

Have I told you about
the fork-tailed flycatcher?

She's right.

How they gather near
the elm trees south of town.

- You know almost nothing about me.
- I know everything I need to know.

Unless, of course, those "business
problems" are a euphemism

for a wife or a husband.

No wife. No husband.

But there is a cat.

As well as other things
you should know about me.

- About who I am.
- Raymond, I know who you are.

You're someone who needs
to see the fork-tailed flycatcher.

Which I intend to show you just
as soon as I find my binoculars.

I'm gonna go upstairs and you're
gonna make us some sandwiches.

How's that sound?

It sounds just right.

- I found two pairs and a blanket.
- I found salami and cheese.

I'll get a basket for the
food and we're good to go.

You told me the flycatcher can
range as far south as lower Mexico,

and some have even been
spotted as far down as Argentina.

What was that?

Nothing, I was just...

What were you saying?

I was saying...

I was remembering that you said

you were thinking about
becoming a vegetarian.

That pipe dream was
about 12 pounds ago.

That's something my doctor's
always bugging me about.

Didn't you say there was an
excellent vegan sandwich shop in town?

- But you're already making lunch.
- Which we can bring,

in case the Tofurky is inedible.

Why don't you run into
town, order for both of us,

I'll finish up, pack, and be
ready to go when you get back.

- Are you sure?
- Positive.

Okay. Two Tofurky
sandwiches coming up.

Oh, hey there.

- Hey. Here on a call. It won't be long.
- A call, really?

- What seems to be the problem?
- County sent me.

Area's having outages. I gotta
check your wires. It's standard.

Okay, very good.

Vague but detailed enough.

Delivered with authority.

- I'm not sure what you mean.
- You know what I mean.

I got the work order right here.


How many are coming?


You found Arkham.

In a chest freezer in the garage.
His weapon and vehicle are gone.

The girlfriend, Miss
Foster, ping her cell.

She left less than
20 minutes ago.

Reddington wasn't far behind.

Wherever she's going,
that's where he's going.

Copy that.

What do you want to do
about the missing vehicle?


This is between you and me.

It has nothing to do with her.

- You must be referring to Miss Foster.
- She has no idea who I am.

My family had no
idea who you were.

They didn't know why they were targeted.
But that didn't prevent their suffering.

You still have time to
rethink this. It's not too late.

It's interesting to me how you speak
as if you have any say in this, Raymond.

As if it can somehow be
resolved in a civil manner.

The one thing I
can assure you of,

the one thing, is that
what is about to happen

is going to be
anything but civil.

We got a track on the
woman's cell. She's close.

I have a second team
on their way to her now.

- What are you doing here?
- Anne.

If you needed something,
you could have called me.

Come with me.

Is that blood on your
hand? What happened?

I'll explain in the car.

Raymond, are you okay?
I don't... What's going on?

Stay with me.

- Please. Where are we going?
- Your phone.

- What on earth is wrong?
- Your phone.

Raymond, you're scaring me.

What's going on?
And who's that woman?


Hello! Can I help you?

- You should leave.
- Is that a gun? Raymond!

Come with me.

No. Answer my question.
What is going on?

I'm not who you think I am. I have
another life, and it found us here.

We are in danger,

and I need to keep you safe.

- Someone wants to hurt you?
- Us.

Stay here, stay quiet.
Only open the door if it's me.

Anyone else, shoot.
You understand?

Just pull the trigger.

- Anne.
- Raymond.

- What did you do?
- We have to go.

- Who was that woman?
- Please, just try and keep up.

Where are you taking me? I don't
want... Stop! Let go of my hand!

Anne, please, listen to me.

People are coming
for us. It's not safe.

- You need to come with me.
- Come with you where?

May I have your
attention, please?

- Sorry to interrupt...
- What are you doing here?

- I'm Raymond Reddington.
- Listen to him.

I am a fugitive.

- I have two firearms on my person.
- Gun!

Someone will need to disarm me.

Lois, we have a situation. I need
you to listen to me very carefully.

Yeah. Chief! Agent Barnes
says they have confirmation.

- Agents en route?
- In the air, 40 minutes out.

Within 40 minutes, everyone
in this building could be dead.

You really are him.

Lois, you need to get
her somewhere safe now.

We don't have much time.

Contact the highway
patrol, sheriff's department,

any units from other counties.

Can someone shut him up?

Chief, D.C. field
office on line two.

They are coming. Dangerous,
highly-trained mercenaries.

He's not making it up.
I saw him kill a woman.

Kill who?

Lois, look at me.

I am the most wanted man to
ever come through those doors,

by a lot, and I came
here by choice,

not to surrender myself
but to protect Anne

from the very bad
men who are coming.

You need to get
her somewhere safe.

They will not be intimidated
that you're the police.

They will assault this building
and kill everyone to get to me.

Please, get on the mutual-aid band
and scramble any units within earshot

because this is
happening right now.

It isn't just Wichita
coming for you, friend.

Kansas City suits are on
the way, a team out of D.C.

Chief, will you
take a look at this?

Anne, talk to me. He
killed someone? Killed who?

- I don't know who she was.
- You saw him do it?

- Neither one has plates.
- Get away from those doors.

- What is happening?
- They're here, aren't they?

Lois, I am begging you.

Get your boss to enact
lockdown protocols.

Get on the radio, whatever
cavalry you have, call them in. Now.

She doesn't have the
authority to give that order,

and you sure aren't
authorized to give it.

- You need to get ahead of this.
- He's right.

Whatever this is,
we are not equipped.

Here's what we'll do.

I want all nonessential
personnel out.

Beth, get the others,
go out the back.

Pembry, find out what
units County has in the area

and where they are.

Brandt, notify Butler and Lyon
counties, and put local EMS on standby.

Who are you?

You need somewhere
safe where you can hide.

That was Reeves.

There was an incident in town,
but they have eyes on Reddington.

What kind of incident?

Landon. She's gone.

And Reddington?

Took the woman and went
to the local police station.

Oh, Raymond. You do
keep things interesting.

How do you wanna handle this?

Put Sagan on the police scanners,
have him give us a time frame.

If we're going to do this, it's gonna
have to happen fast and happen now.

I spoke to County.
They're sending units now.

Gonna take Anne to Emporia

and hold her there until we
have a better handle on this.

You can't wait for
units. Get her out now.

Feds are 20 minutes out.

How could you not tell me?

I let you into my life, my home.

I never wanted to draw
you into my life, Anne.

- I only wanted to escape into yours.
- How selfish,

you getting involved with me,
knowing all this was hanging over us.

I let my feelings for
you cloud my judgment.

I am so sorry.

When this is over, so are we.

Chief, take a look at this.

That second SUV moved.
He repositioned around back.

We have a third out front now.

Cottonwood Falls
Police, Chief Russell.

Chief. How wonderful. I
presume you're the man in charge?

I am. Who is this?

I'm here for Mr. Reddington.

I'm confident he's
explained the situation to you.

You also know the closest
units are nine minutes out.

I have eight minutes
to acquire my prisoner.

Send him out now, you live.
Surrender and walk away, you live.

Stay and protect him, and we kill
everyone who stands in our path.

You have 60 seconds
to send him out.

Okay, hold on. Let's start
with, who am I speaking to?


- Chief?
- Fifty.

- These guys are armed.
- Surrounding the facility.

- Hold on.
- Get down.

Why don't I come outside and
we can talk, have a conversation?


You still there?
Can you hear me?

I don't care who you are, I
won't bend to your demands.

I'm not gonna send a man to his
death, even if he is a known criminal.

What I'll do is talk to you until we
come up with some reasonable...


That was unfortunate.

Let's hope whoever
is second-in-command

can be more reasonable.

Send out Reddington.

Now you're in charge.

Shots fired. Shots fired.

Active shooters on-site. Officer
down. Requesting backup.

State troopers east of
Elmdale headed our way.

Units are eight minutes out.

If you have a
weapons cache, open it.

We need to take positions
and push them back.

I'm not giving you a weapon.

Staying alive until backup
arrives is the only thing you can do.

No, you know what I can do?

- End this by giving them what they want.
- What does that mean?

Stop. We're not sending him out.

- I'm not protecting him.
- Hold on.

Keep your heads down.

She's right. We can't send
him out there. They'll kill him.

- Just let me think.
- About what?

I'm not dying for him.
The chief already did.

- Brandt, stop.
- Do not go out there.

I'm coming out.

I'm unarmed!

You can see that, right?

No games.

I just wanna walk away.

That man has two children.

I thought police
understood rules.

I told you the rules. You
can't change your mind.

I gave you 60 seconds
to send Reddington out.

You ignored me, so
now I'm coming in.

The only thing that can stop
that is sending Reddington out.


Okay. Be right there.

Uncuff me. Lois, I can
give them what they want.

You need to uncuff me.

I'll uncuff you, but
you're not going out.

No. What are you
doing? You can't.

He's Raymond Reddington.

If we're gonna survive
this, he's our only chance.

I'm removing these cuffs, but if we
get out of here alive, I am arresting you.

You try to escape, I'll
shoot you. Understand?

Given the circumstances,
that's not much of a threat,

but, yes, I understand.

- We should give Anne a sidearm.
- I don't want one.

It can save your life.

Give it to her.

This is for our defense only.

If this building is breached,
you have my authorization to...

Chase County Sheriff,
this is Officer Ethan Pembry.

How far are those units?

The detention cell.
Is it fully enclosed?

It is, but we can't access it!

Why not?

- I don't have the keys. Brandt does.
- Brandt?

- I can get them.
- No!

- We have to!
- It's too dangerous.

No, Lois! No!

No, no, no!

Go to the holding cell.


Here we go.

Keys. Where are the keys?


Well, look what we have
here. Three ducks in a barrel.

Anne, keep your eyes on Lois.

Get the door off.

- Just ignore him.
- Heh.

This certainly is interesting.

Give me your scarf.

Mr. Reddington.

Take her hand.


You should have
left her out of this.

It's over.

This is between us.

You're coming with me, Raymond.
We're ending this today. Here.

I'd like to agree with you,
but then we'd both be wrong.

So, in turn, how about this?

Take your men and your guns
and your bloodshed and go.

Come find me when you're ready,
and I'll show you how to exact revenge.

Sir, we need to go right now.

The medics will
be here any minute.

Keep pressure on the wound.

I'm sorry, Anne.

I wish I belonged
here, but I don't.

No. Stop. I told you if we
survived this, I'd arrest you.

You're under arrest.

you willing to go ♪

♪ After the punch line ♪

She needs a doctor.

Station's clear. We
need paramedics.

- Did you find Reddington?
- He was here?

- I tried to stop him.
- You didn't find him?

Not yet. But we'll drop a net so
wide, even he won't be able to escape.

- Who did this?
- My friend.

I'm not sure where you learned
this, but you saved her life.

- Reddington was visiting you?
- I didn't know who he was.

- I'm told he came quite often.
- That's right. He did.

But you didn't know who he was?

You mean, was my life so boring

that I was willing to spice it up
by dating an international fugitive?

No, it was not.

But it was boring enough
for me to get suckered

by an international fugitive
into thinking he cared about me.

Now that I know the truth, believe
me, if I can help you find him,

that would be my pleasure.

Glad to hear it. I
have a lot of questions.

I need to go home first.

One of my men
will accompany you.

She's a victim, not a suspect.

She's also my oldest
friend. Don't hound her.

I just need to shower,
change and have a good cry.

Then I'll answer
anything you want to ask.

- My car's in the lot. Mind taking it home?
- Of course not.

I'll be at the hospital as soon
as I've answered their questions.

I wish we'd caught him.

But knowing he's out of your life,
I do get some satisfaction in that.

♪ Absorbed in your hustle ♪

I told you if we survived this, I'd
arrest you. You're under arrest.

Anne watched you kill someone.
I saw you kill three more.

We're alive because of that.

Not my chief, not Pembry or
Brandt. They're dead because of you.

I told them what they
needed to do. They didn't do it.

You were right. About him.
The wolf in sheep's clothing.

- But you were wrong too.
- Anne, don't.

- You don't understand.
- You need to move.

I can't. I won't.

Lois said to take the Falls
Road east out of town.

Most of the staties don't even know
it exists. Nobody will be watching.

- She's a good friend.
- The best.

- The man who came after you...
- Neville Townsend.

He won't stop, will he?

You were right. At the station.

Us getting involved.

It was selfish of me.

It put you in harm's
way. It still puts you there.

If I'm in trouble either way,
why can't we be together?

What I have to do and how I have
to do it, you can't be a part of that.

No one should be a part of that.

It won't be safe
here until it's done.

I understand.

Is there somewhere you can go?

Not to your daughter's.
They'll anticipate that.

My friend Cindi, the one who
made the cake, she has a cabin.

Call her. See if
you can go there.

When it's safe, you'll
receive a postcard.

It will be from the Corn
Palace in South Dakota.

- That's how you'll know it's me.
- But you don't know the address.

I have certain capabilities.

Staying awake for a
movie isn't one of them.

Thank you.

For what?

For all of it.

Every... Every bit of it.

Except the bridge. Of all the things
that happened, that scared me the most.

Take care, dummy.

You take care, Anne.

Yes. Yes. Sam's Diner. Route 28.
