True Detective (2014–…): Season 2, Episode 8 - Omega Station - full transcript

Ray and Ani attempt to escape their desperate situation while Frank ties up some loose ends.


A little place in the rock,

in the trees.

A cave

is how I remember it.

It's like a fairy tale.

Four days?

No, maybe he gave me something.

Maybe I blocked it out.

It's a black hole.

This empty space,
those four days.

And what I
remember when I got...

I got in the car.

He didn't force me.

He didn't even get near me.

He called me pretty.

I remember.

I remember it made me feel...

I liked...

I got in the van
with a stranger.

Every time I remember

that feeling,

like pride,

I get sick to my stomach.

I could lie to myself,

but I felt proud.

I was proud that he thought

I was pretty.

Makes me sick.

None of that was your fault.

I walk up behind him.

It's him. It's the guy.

I've been thinking about him.

I've been
picturing him for months.

I'm not sleeping.

Passing strangers
who was wondering.

He turned his head

right as I was up on him.

I planned to say it,

but I didn't say anything.

I got sick,
and to keep from being sick,

I raised up...

...right when he was turning.

And I...

It didn't make anything better.

It made it worse.

And I know now,

you know, the act,

it described a trajectory.


whole cultures,
wouldn't blame you.

I don't.

It wasn't him.

They got the real guy.

Something in Venice, you know?

Weeks ago.

Who was he?

I don't even know if it matters.

So I haven't been
like this in a long time.


I could tell.


Hmm. You seemed like you were
making up for lost time.

I'd do
anything for 10 more years.

We should have met
when we were young.

We said we
wouldn't regret the past.

Anyway, who said
we don't have 10 more years?

There's $100,000 there.

You're gonna go with Nails.

I'll meet you in
two weeks or less.

Like hell. I'm not leaving you.

I know about the clubs.
I saw Blake.

I'm not...

You don't have a choice.

I always have a choice.

And I'm not going anywhere.

It's not gonna work,
the you and me thing.

The way I see it is
you weren't up front with me.

If you can't have a kid, then
what good is the design, see?

You had me on
the fairy tale for a while,

and it was good,

but now it's time to go.

You can't act for shit.

Take it from me.

Where one goes, the other goes.
That's what we said.

That's not acting. Now take your
payout and get the fuck on.

Your ring? What is that?

You think that I... Here.

You think I give
a fuck about rings?

That was a big diamond.
Fuck you.

I am not leaving you. I know
what you're doing, Frank.

Stop reading into things.
Listen to what I'm saying.

I am listening and
you're not convincing.

So you listen to me.

Whatever they do to you,
they do to me.

Do you understand? There's us.

There's us, and everything
else is in the gray.

So fuck your martyrdom.

I came in this with my
eyes open, same as you.

You have to go.

I got us new cars. Nails is
gonna watch out for you.


You come with me.

$100,000 is more than enough.

To start over?

To hold on to what's ours.

I can't run.

They'll come for me
and they'll keep coming.

I need to finish this.

You can't finish this.

They made sure of that before
they threw the first punch.

I have a play.
One thing they don't know.

It's not worth it.

I cannot run. It'll never stop.

If I do that and I come
home and I find you...



I'm not... I'm not leaving you.


you made it all mean something.

Everything before we met.

If they came to me through you,

if they hurt you,

I couldn't...

I wouldn't deserve to live.

If you love me,

I cannot do the things I have to
do unless I know you're safe.

If I don't think you're safe,

I'm lost. They got me.

Nails has two tickets.

Venezuela out of Oregon.

Not unless you're with me. Otherwise
the last six years are nothing.

No, they weren't.

Never nothing.

I know.

I know.
That was never our story.

I got my ticket out.

I'll meet you inside
of two weeks, I promise.

Two weeks.

Or less.


You'll meet me in two weeks

or less.

El Obelisco.

There's a park there.

Wear a white dress.

You wear a white suit with
a red rose in your jacket.

I'll wear a red
rose in my jacket.

I'll see you
coming out of the crowd,

a head higher
than everybody else.

At first I'm worried.

I can't see you.

But then you do.

I see the white dress.

You don't have
to do that, Frank.

I mean the money.

Couldn't see.

Blood in my eyes.

Nail in my fucking head.

I heard him saying leave me.

Fucking Teamster. A nail gun.

Slung me over your shoulder.
I don't forget that.

I know you don't.

Nobody's gonna get near her.

I promise.

We'll see you in two weeks.

Or less.

Two weeks.

The security cameras
were down on the street.

Yeah, he, uh...

He worked under the prosecutor
for the AG that got murdered.

Excuse me.

Yeah? Woodrugh?

Uh, he's no longer
with us, I'm afraid.

Hello, Ray.

What happened?

Why don't you tell me, Ray?


Davis, Woodrugh.

It's all you, right?

You know I know, right?

The robbery in '92.
Caspere kept some diamonds.

He was holding
them over you, yeah?

We should meet.
Let's talk this over.

You could come out
of this good, Ray.

I could make it go away.

Put you right. Get you paid.


Yeah, I'll, uh...
I'll drop by PD later today.

Where are you? Come on, Ray.
You're one of us.

Why Woodrugh?

There was no reason.

Why do you care?

You know the guy
was a fag, right?

Come on, you're a player, Ray. Let's talk.
We can work this out.

Yeah, sure thing, Lieutenant.

What was that?


He's dead.


Why? What...

Jesus Christ! He was gonna
have a fucking kid.

It was Burris.

They're putting it on me.
First Davis, now... Fuck!

I can't... I can't...

Jesus, he was...

After everything else.


He was better than us.

He saved our asses.


Three times.


He deserved better.

Who do we have now?

The girl, Erica,
she's in the wind.

There was two of them.

The kids... Boy, girl.


Field interviews, that movie set.
We had a crew list.

There was a guy there.
Set photographer.

She talked to him.
The ages are right.

Fuck, they even
kind of looked alike.

Set photographer. Lenny Tyler.

That's the brother.
Laura and Leonard.

They might have the hard drive.

Caspere's hidden camera.

Caspere's murder,
if it was them,

it just opened up
all this other stuff.

We were always set up.

So was Frank.

Your gangster buddy.

Yeah, he's actually
not a bad guy,

but, yeah,
Caspere was playing him.

So we find Osterman. Tyler.

Says here
Lenny's with the union.

They'd have some
kind of address.

Unless you just
want to take off.

I'm pretty sure

I can get us out of the country.

If there's a chance to get
them, I want to take it.

I was never big
on running myself.

Woodrugh wasn't.




Where is he? Tony.

I don't know, I...

What... What day is it?

There was yelling.

Yelling about what?

A Russian man.
Uh, Tony's parties.

His new business or something.

Hard to remember.

How did you meet Austin,
the mayor?

Tony introduced us.

He say his father
lonely since mother got sick.

But you were
Tony's friend first?

How did this...

I... I don't... He kill himself?

Where's the daughter, Betty?

Betty? She was there, I think.

With the yelling. They talk about me.
I hear them.

She's sick, like her mother.

I can't believe
Austin would do this.

Are you fucking dense?

This is your boy Tony.

Made to look like
some half-ass suicide.

And my guess is
you'll be taking the fall.

Where's Tony now? Think.

Where would he be?

I don't know.
He's cold to me now.

Is there a safe in the house?

Do you have access
to bank accounts?

Austin handles those things.
I have allowance.

Then I hope you saved some
of that Miss Ukraine money.




They split us up after.

I had a foster family,

but Len went into a group home.

I ran away at 16.

Started working the streets.

How did you meet Caspere?

Through Tascha.

She introduced me to Tony.
Brought me into the parties.

Then she told me
about his diamonds.

I met him

and I knew.

He used to visit my mother.

I remembered him.

And you got him to hire you?

I changed my name.

Dyed my hair red.

He didn't recognize
me from the parties.

I started digging
into all of his stuff.

And Len, your brother?

We found each other years back.

He'd been through a lot.

The places he grew up...

I got him a job
on the movie set.

And what happened
with Caspere exactly?

I went to his place.

His other place.
I left the door unlocked.

Put a pill in his drink.

Len came in.
He saw inside the house.

He knew what I'd been doing.

He went bad.

He was gonna use
the acid to get Ben to talk,

to tell us who
else had robbed us,

who had killed our parents,
but he got carried away.

He was too angry.

He put him out
there on the road.

- Why?
- I don't know.

I think

he thought it was funny.

Caspere was
confessing everything.


He told him about
the rail corridor.

He drove around with Ben's
body through all those places.

Why'd he leave you like this?

Because I was
trying to stop them.

From what?

He's gonna meet up
with that chief, Holloway.

He's gonna trade
him the hard drive

from Ben's place
for the diamonds.

What's on the hard drive?

Would have been
footage of important...

You said "would have."

We didn't have the password.

And the hard drive erased itself.
Some kind of security feature.

It's blank.

He's going there
to kill Holloway.

Where's he meeting Holloway?
How long ago did he leave?

A couple of hours. He
wanted to get there early.

- Where?
- The train station here.

The big new one.
He wanted a public place.

We got her testimony.

You stay with her until we can
walk her into a precinct.

Ray. Ray, wait.

Saw the mayor went for a swim.

Thought I should say goodbye.

What are you doing, Frank?

This was very unlike you.

Lashing out, childish.

Now I have to answer.

Like I had to answer this,
you patronizing old fuck?

Are you still in LA, Frank?

Oh, I'm long gone, cue ball.

But we'll settle up later.

We certainly will.

Good luck with that,
you KGB kike motherfucker.

I'll only need the one bullet.

Maybe not today and
maybe not tomorrow,

but, Osip,
when the lights go out,

that's me.

Who is this?



I was just thinking about you.

Where are you taking me?

Me? Nowhere.

This bus goes to Seattle. Hits
a couple stops in between.

You get out of here.
Forget this.

Maybe it can blow over for you.

This is never gonna blow over.

My life ended that day.

Except it didn't.

You can lay it down.
I'm giving you that.



whatever debt there was,

you're not the person
who needs to be punished now.

What about Len?

Lay him to rest. Sounds like
you lost him years ago.

What am I supposed to do?

I don't know.

Nobody is here right now.

I just move a group through.

Anybody come around
asking about me?


What are you doing, Frank?

Taking off soon.

And I'm signing
the place over to you.

All the way.

It's yours.

Thank you.

I was always
grateful for your help.

You heard about Ray?

It's a frame-up.

He'll be back here,
if everything goes all right.

They're gonna need
transport to Mexico.


Him and a woman.

What is going on?
I heard about the poker room.

Everything's ending.

Time to wake up.

Don't turn around or I'll cut you in
half before the show even starts.

Just listen closely.

You're fucking this up, kid.

Who are you?

The guy you blasted
with a fucking shotgun

in your little bird mask.

That was Caspere's. Sick fuck.

Could have killed you.

Well, you don't need to worry
about that right now.

I know what they did.

Why you're here.
You know what they did?

To my father?
To me and my sister?


Turned my sister into a whore.

I know everything.

I want them, too. But suicide
ain't gonna get that.

You want revenge? Drag their
shit out into the light.

They won't get punished.

I am the blade and the bullet.

Then listen carefully to me.

The hard drive is in this bag.

Lot of interesting
things in there.

A man with this,

buy himself a lot of juice.


What, a wire?

See, I don't need a wire, Chief.
I got plenty of insurance.

What I need is a payout.

The land documents.

They're in the bag, too.

The man who wanted to meet,
he killed Caspere?

One of the Osterman kids.

All grown up.

Where is he now?

In a Vinci landfill.

I got copies of everything.

Something happens
to me on the way out,

that shit hits the cloud.

News agencies.

What do you want?

Any chance you
brought the stones?

Plastic. Had I known
you were coming,

we could have made
different arrangements.

I want out from under.

I want my name cleared.

For the hard drive
and land documents?


And Bezzerides? Where is she?

Fuck should I know?

She and that Woodrugh guy
both thought I did Davis.

Think I've been working
for you the whole time.

Too bad you weren't.

Honestly, Ray, nobody had an
idea you were this competent.

You all bought your way
into Vinci with the stones.

Caspere made
a deal with Chessani.

Ben had a talent
for dissembling.

And Dixon?

He wasted his part
of the take, yeah?

He was looking to, what, blackmail
you guys for a new piece?

Where is this going, Ray?

Amarilla. The shoot-out.

How did that happen?

He may have gotten
a tip about the raid.

Closed everything out,
didn't it?

Now you got a piece of
that central corridor.

You know Chessani's dead, right?

Not the Chessani I work for.

Cut the shit, Ray.

Whatever happened in
'92 isn't the issue.

You want clear,
we put this on Bezzerides.

Geldof is already on board.

No sudden movements, son.

You're public enemy number one.

Don't even need
a reason to vaporize you.

Couldn't you have
just taken the stones?

Way back?

Did you have to
kill those people?

The Osterman woman had
been seeing Ben for years.

She was pregnant
and she knew things.

When he tried to break it off,
she threatened him.

Ben didn't even want the first
kid, much less another one.

The first one?

The girl. The little one.

That was Ben's
illegitimate daughter.

- Downstairs!
- Oh, my God! Go!


Move, move!

Out of the way!

We met?

You're a cop, right?

Lady cop.

What gave me away?

The tits?

I meant you're a lady.
You have dignity.

You like Ray?

I like Ray.

Sure that means a lot to him.

Relationships are important.

Maybe you disagree.

You take this
Venezuela deal we're talking,

you make it to Barquisimeto,

there'll be this lady there
in two weeks at this park,

El Obelisco.

Her name is Jordan.

If she's there and I'm not,

maybe you can
give her a message.

What's that?

Tell her I wanted to be there.

And that story we told,
it's still true.

Talk to you a minute?


Venezuela works.
Shit extradition.

We could have good lives.

Well, I don't have
much choice at this point.

Anaheim went to shit.

Yeah, but a heist?

You got money to run?

Can't even access a bank.
No credit cards.

Even if retreat was my inclination,
which it fucking is not,

you want to stay alive,
you and yours,

you need money.

You promised me
the guy who set me up.

It was Blake.

The guy you clipped was some
shit stain had it in for him.

Blake's gone.

He did not go nicely.

Maybe I spared you that one.

These fucks will
never see it coming, man.

Place is so far up the mountain,

it'll be a day before anybody
realizes what happened.

This is just information, right?

Shit in the air.

That guy they're
saying you killed,

he was your buddy, right?

Actually, uh,

I don't think I
knew him that well.

But, uh, yeah.
Yeah, he was my friend.

Maybe that means something.

Call it what you want...

Revenge, justice,

a retirement package.

Men like this...

They always skate.

Not with me they don't.

I did not live my
life to go out like this.


We use a short cruise,
tourists to Ensenada.

From there, we go south to San Miguel.
My people are there.

We find someone.
We get you all to Venezuela.

You've done this a lot?

Much easier to bring
people in than out.

I've been trying to get
Ray to see San Miguel.

How do you know them?

The man that hurt me years
ago, Ray took care of him.

Put him in prison, I mean.

Disabled wing.

Frank gave me
the money to buy this place.

Never asked for it back.

How do you know Ray?

Well, I guess

we saved each other's lives.

Tony and Betty. Pitlor, I
want him on the record.

His files.
We can get confessions.

I've heard enough
confessions today.


We got nothing to run on.

And I owe these filth.

I owe Woodrugh.

Would you run?


If I asked, would you?

Uh, I might.

I just might.

...a very strong foundation
on which to build a future.

a point to the waltzing in.

I do not like beginning
something unfinished.

Mr. Agronov, have you
ever heard of moderation?

Guess I was wrong.

It was today.

Old times, Frank.

I saved you.

You're like my son.

Stay down south.


You're going, right?
We gotta get out.

Yeah, that's the plan.

Thinking about your boy?

Now you can send him to Yale.


You taking the boat?

I made other arrangements.

But I'll be there. All right.

They suicided Pitlor.

Loose ends.

No sign of Betty
or Tony anywhere.

Fuck it.

Later for them. Maybe one
day we get it to the press.

Maybe that Times guy
who wrote about Vinci.

We got a hell of
a retirement bonus.

I'm on my way now.
You understand?


I understand.

All right. You packed?

Yeah, I'm all set.

Boat leaves at 3:00.

All right. I'm 40 miles out.
Plenty of time.

Well, hurry anyway.

All right.

I, uh...

I'll see you in a bit.



He's okay. He's on his way.


They have a total
valuation of $3.5 million.

I will stand by their grading
anywhere in the world.

Meets your bio data.

You're even a premium club
member in United and American.

That's your two, plus five.

Frank, you're full of surprises.

The Russians?

I wonder when we will hear
about what you've done.

Another 500 when I'm
where I need to be.

Safe travels.

So, Chad crossed the bridge
and lost Calvin's fire.

Under five, you're
supposed to use the names.

Seventeen, that's within your
maximum power threshold.

Under five, you need 18 or
higher to use your shield...


Yeah, all right.


Hey, cutting it a little close.

I, uh...

I'm gonna be late.

What the
fuck are you talking about?

Get on that boat.

Wh... What?

You hear me?
You get on that boat.

I'll catch up.

Wait. What... What is...

No, just get here.

I just wanted...

I thought we had time.


I just wanted to
see my boy again.


There's a transponder on my car.

Maybe they were
watching from school.

I don't know.

Dump it.

Come on, get rid of it.

Put it on a truck headed north.
Come on... Shit, Ray.

I can't.

They could have
already been watching, see?

And if they got eyes on me,

it won't matter what
I do with the tracker.

I'd just lead them to you.

You understand?

So what... What are...

You just get on the boat.

Just take the files, take the
recordings and get on that boat.

Look, I'll ditch the car

in a parking garage.

I'll jack another one.

I'll be right on your heels.

Then I'll wait.

You stick to the plan.


Please get onto the boat.

Trust me.

I can lose these
assholes with a tricycle.



Listen, let me talk to Felicia.

All right? Just for a second.

I'm gonna talk
to you again, right?

We're gonna see
each other again?

Are you kidding?

You're gonna need
a restraining order.

No. No, I won't.


Hello. I'm not gonna make it.

Don't ask, just listen to me.

You owe me, right?

You owe me.

I don't care if you have to tie her
up, you make sure she gets out.

You get her out.


I promise.

What did he say?

To make sure you
get on that boat.

You? What the fuck is this?

A turn here, a turn there,
and it goes on for years.

Becomes something else.

I'm sorry, you know,

for the man I became,

the father I was.

I hope you got the strength
to learn from that.

And I hope you got no doubts
how much I loved you, son.

And you're better than me.

If I had been stronger...

I would have been more like you.

Hell, son,

if everyone was stronger,
they'd be more like you.

You taking me out?

I was already gone.

What the fuck did
you come out to say?

We made a deal.

No clubs, no locations for us.

The clubs burned down.
What was I supposed to do?

Armenians, Russians,
this is their thing.

Where do the Armenians get their
supply, what they gave to you?

You wanna get square?

There's a flat
million in the suitcase.

That's my trade.

God damn it.

We're square,
then, our business.

That'll buy you something.

A million dollars doesn't
buy me a ride back to town?

He wants your suit.
Give it to him.

You want my suit?

All right.

I didn't even wear
a suit till I was 38.


We made a nice bed for you.

Lie down, Frank.



It's okay. It's okay.

I don't know, boy.

I don't think them
other kids like you.

I don't think anybody does.

Who the fuck wants
some lanky loudmouth

pissing in their ear, huh?

Your mother sure didn't.
It's what made her sick.

Your fucking whining,
that's why she's gone.

Shut up. Shut the fuck up.


Scared of the dark.

Yeah, I never loved you.

I never asked you to.

Shut up.

Shut the fuck up.

Still got time, Ray!

Where's the papers?

Where's the woman?

Yes, gawky motherfuck.

I told you not to
come around here.

You fucking
retarded or something?

Told you what
would happen to you.

Fuck your shit up, Larry Bird.

Stop and lie down,
you dumb motherfucker.

Fuck you.

Never lie down.

Last time, Ray.

Let me help you.


Where is she?

In a better place.

Please, Frank.
They don't have to do this.

Tell them.
Tell them I'll make it up.

I got stupid.


Frank, you could let me go.

They'll never know.

It's not me.

I didn't put you here.
But you could get me out.

Please, Frank. I got a family.

It isn't me.

Hi there, handsome.

You made it.

You're okay?

I did.

I'm fine.

I'm safe.

I'm coming.

Hold on.

What's a guy like you
doing in a place like this?

Just making my way, baby.

I told you I'd make it.

You did.

You made it.

You can rest now.

No rest.

Never stop moving.


Oh, babe.

You stopped
moving way back there.

The former sheriff's deputy
and City of Vinci detective

was the chief suspect in the
murder of a state attorney

and a state police investigator.

He was employed as
a security consultant

at a Vinci casino,
which recently burned down.

After a lengthy pursuit,
the fugitive engaged

a tactical squad of
state and city police

in a firefight which
resulted in his death.

A lot of the rest was in the
papers over the next year,

if you know where to look.

These facts were
paid for in blood.

So honor that.

I don't know if it'll
make any difference,

but it should.

Because we
deserve a better world.

And I owe him that.

I owe his sons that.


this is evidence.

Most of it's here,
some of it's not.

The truth is naked larceny,

open murder,

and cascading betrayals.

Come with me.


I can bring this to the Times.

It's your story now.

I told it.

But wait, there's... Stay here.

Don't leave this room until
I've been gone for an hour.



I know. It's okay.



He's restless.

Long trip ahead.

Great. Okay.

Mmm-hmm. Here we go.


You're okay.
