[ Aram is showering. Janet (formerly “Elise”) startles him, then joins him in the shower ]
Aram: Oh, my God. [ Laughs ] Don’t do that.
Janet: What? This?
Aram: Mm-mm No, that’s– that’s fine. Wait, how’d you get in?
Janet: You left the front door unlocked, silly. …
Aram: I swear I locked it. Wait, I know I locked it.
[ Aram grabs a towel ] …

[ Aram checks the door ]
[ Aram is grabbed from behind ] [Janet hears muffled shouting]
Janet: Aram? Aram? Aram, you okay?
[Janet wraps herself in a towel and goes to the living room. Janet sees Dembe. He has a gun]
Janet: Oh, my God.
Dembe: Be still. Don’t make a sound.

[ Ressler and police are at Aram’s apartment when Samar arrives ]
Samar: What happened? Where’s Aram?
Ressler: We’re still piecing it together. We’ve got a 9-1-1 call. Neighbors reported a pounding on the walls. … [W]e found her bound and gagged in the closet.
Samar: Found who?
[Ressler avoids answering. Samar sees Janet and angrily grabs her]
Samar: What have you done with him?
Ressler: Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Janet: Is she nuts?
Ressler: Easy. She’s not a suspect here. She’s a victim. One of the victims. They were together. Here.

Cooper: Tell me everything you’ve dug up on Dembe Zuma since he vanished.
Red: Why? What’s happened?
Cooper: … You’ve been hunting Dembe for over a month. I want to know everything you’ve found because
now Agent Mojtabai is in danger. …
Red: Aram?
Liz: He was abducted by Dembe last night. …
Red: Dembe has taken a calculated risk abducting Agent Mojtabai. He wouldn’t have done that to harm him, but to use him. For the time being, Aram is perfectly safe. …
Liz: Are you closer to finding him or not?
Red: I am now.
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
[ Keys jangle ]
Janet: It’s a key hunter. Aram has one just like it.… You attach it to things that you don’t wanna lose– You know, car keys, laptops, pets. It uses cellphones as a location array. Once you activate it, it transmits a signal that is relayed by any live cellular device in its proximity.
Ressler: Aram’s keys weren’t at his apartment.
Janet: Right. Which means he probably still has them with him. And if he does, we’ve got a shot.
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Liz: Where are we going?
Red: To find the Sanctum Corporation. A refuge, an enterprise that specializes in relocating criminals who are on the verge of being arrested or being dispatched by an adversary. An underground railroad for miscreants.
Liz: And you think that’s how Dembe disappeared? He hired them?
Red: Not for himself. Last year, Matias Solomon used Dembe’s family as leverage against him to get to me. Afterward, I told him to hide his daughter and granddaughter.
Liz: Why couldn’t you hide them?
Red: I wanted Dembe to pick a vendor I knew nothing about to keep his family as far from my world as possible. He did as I instructed– so well, in fact, that I haven’t been able to identify the vendor he contracted. Sanctum is the last on my list. …

Aram: Okay, uh what is this?
Dembe: Raymond’s. He has lockers like this all around the globe.
Aram: You want me to hack it so you can steal from Mr. Reddington. No. I’m not gonna do that.
[ Electronic trills, beeps ] [ Dembe opens the locker. It is empty ]
Dembe: I did not bring you here to steal from Raymond. I brought you here to find out who already did.
Aram: You’re trying to help him. Uh, then why not just tell him? He– he thinks you poisoned him.
Dembe: Yes. I handed him the drink that nearly killed him, but I did not poison it.
Aram: So tell him.
Dembe: Not without proof.
Aram: That’s why you’re here. You think whoever accessed this locker is the person who tried to kill Mr. Reddington?
Dembe: Yes.
Aram: Okay, uh, fine. Uh– Okay, okay, these scanners usually use a syslog-d. That’s a-a program that stores a list of previous users. I’ll try to access that log… Uh– Do you really need to still point that at me? I’m– I’m gonna help.
[ Dembe points the gun more deliberately ]
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Glen: So Dembe finally went off the deep end, huh? I can’t say I’m surprised, what with the whole package. You know, strong, silent type, all stoic with the eyes and the phony African accent. I, for one, never bought it. …
Red: I’m in no mood, Glen. Did you access the footage I asked for?
Glen: Yeah. I rolled back the DOT camera you called about.
Liz: Those cameras are live feeds. You can’t rewind them. Glen: Maybe you can’t rewind them, toots, but I’ve got a team of Hindus running a server farm in Adams Morgan recording every second of every traffic cam in this burg. You’d be surprised how often that comes in handy. Only one other car was at that warehouse before you guys showed up. Registered to Chuck Shaw. Info’s all there.
[ Glen hands Red a folder ]

[ Chuck Shaw is doing bench presses ]

Red: Good afternoon, Chuck.
Chuck: Yo. Who the hell are you?… What do you want?
Red: Richard Fickman.
Chuck: He’s dead.
Red: That’s unfortunate. … Who hired you to kill him?
Chuck: [ Groaning ] We made a deal.
Red: Who?
Chuck: Dr Sofia Gallup. [ Groaning ]
[Baz lifts the dumbbells off Chuck] [ Coughing ]
Red: Please go on.
Chuck: [ Exhales ] I was locked up. She was my therapist. She got me paroled. Dr. Gallup said all I had to do was kill a guy she wanted dead. …

༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Aram: I did it, okay? Uh– Here’s the data you wanted. But … [t]he scanner uses proprietary encryption. I’m sorry, but it would take me days to crack this and figure out who, uh, accessed the– this locker. I’m so sorry.
[ Dembe lowers his gun, sits down on a curb ]
Dembe: You can go.
Aram: I can go? Just like that?
Dembe: Please, forgive me.
Aram: Well, uh, there might be one way to get past the proprietary encryption. Are you really trying to help Mr. Redding-
Dembe: I have three people in my life. My daughter, my granddaughter, and Raymond. …
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Liz: Thank you. [ Phone beeps ] Bureau of Prisons confirmed Dr. Sofia Gallup consults for them. …
Red: How about the last parolee for whom the good doctor testified?
Liz: A felon named Dennis Cauley.
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻

[ Denis Cauley’s apartment ]
Liz: This looks like a dossier on Dr. Gallup’s next victim. Alex Sato.
[ Red looks at the man’s photo ]
Red:Except his name isn’t Alex Sato. It’s Daniel Nakamoto, a master forger of antiquities. 13 years ago, he was paid a pile of money for a cuneiform tablet by the boss of the Sacriponti crime family. … Daniel Nakamoto disappeared shortly after. …
Liz: [Cauley’s] been tracking Nakamoto. Tracing his movements.
Red: Circling his prey.

Liz: Looks like Nakamoto is at the Gabor Museum every afternoon.

༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Red: Afternoon, Daniel. …
Nakamoto: Raymond Reddington?
Red: …I’m afraid your cover has been blown. I suppose that’s fairly obvious at this point. But nonetheless, I’m here to tell you that an assassin is coming to kill you. …
Nakamoto: You’re lying. There’s no way Sanctum could betray me. Impossible. …
Red: I’m warning you, Daniel. Your life is in grave danger.
Nakamoto: If you’re right, and the Sanctum Corporation has failed me, then no one can keep me safe. Not even you.
[ Nakamoto gets up and leaves. A man in a brown jacket approaches him. Blade clicks ]
Nakamoto: Aah!
[Baz attacks the man, kicks away his knife]
Liz: FBI!
Denis Cauley: Aah! Aah!
Liz: Hands on your head.
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Nakamoto: What do you want to know?
Red: Everything you can tell me about the Sanctum Corporation.
Nakamoto: It was run by Tony and Maria Lopez. They owned a honey company in Ohio. They used bee colonies around the world as safe houses and way stations. But … [t]he Lopezes died months ago.


༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Red: Glen. I need information on a deceased couple. Tony and Maria Lopez of Ohio. They were apiarists.
Glen: What? Ape fairies?
Red: Apiarists. Bees.

Janet: When I first met Aram, oh, he was so uptight. I mean, with the strict Muslim upbringing with a healthy dose of Jewish guilt. … He really needed to cut loose.
Samar: And you helped him.
Janet: You say that like I’m some sort of enabler or something. Yeah, okay, fine. I enable him to have fun. I
enable him to blow off steam. I enable him to laugh. Do you have a problem with that?
Samar: I do if it interferes with the work that he does here. …
Janet: You’re upset because I know Aram and you don’t.
[ Beeping ]
Janet: Got him. RBM Digital Security Bureau Data Site.
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻

[ Aram and Dembe approach a security check station at the RBM Digital Security Bureau Data Site ]
Aram: Agents Mojtabai and Zuma, FBI. We got a warrant to run a confiscated device through your proprietary decryption. … [W]e’re on a time crunch. It’s a matter of national security.
Security Guard: [ Sighs ] The warrant?
Aram: Zuma. Give the man the warrant. Don’t tell me you didn’t grab it off the desk. Oh, Zuma, you’re killin’ me.
Dembe: I am sorry. …
Aram: It’s all right. That’s all right. Okay. You got somewhere we can sit and call this in? Court should be able to messenger a new one ASAP.

[ A car marked “Student Driver” pulls up to Red and Liz. Glen is inside with a student driver ]
Red: You got to be kidding me.
Glen: You’re the one in such a damn rush. Get in. … We can speak freely. Señora Vazquez doesn’t know a lick of English.
Glen: [ Spanish: ] Turn right on the next light.
Red: What did you find?
Glen: The Lopezes ran Sanctum for decades. But nine months ago, they got burnt to a crisp. Fire started in the middle of the night. Police report says arson, no suspects, though.
Glen: [ To the student driver ] It’s a car, sweet cheeks, not a roller coaster. They had a daughter named Vanessa. Apple fell far from the tree. She was on the up and up. A therapist.
Liz: A therapist? Like Dr. Gallup? Gallup and Lopez could be one and the same.
Glen: I don’t know no Gallup, but Vanessa was there during the fire. Got burnt pretty bad, but survived.
Liz: Says here all the Lopez family bee farms were foreclosed by the bank, all but the one that burned down. It’s still owned by Vanessa Lopez.
Red: Then that’s where we’re headed. …

Aram: …If I’m lucky, I can find the encryption key before he gets back.
Dembe: Thank you, Aram. …
Aram: Crap. Samar and Ressler are here. … Okay, come on. Downloading. All right, here we are. [ Typing ] [ Beeps ] Kathryn Nemec. Who is who is Kathryn Nemec?
[ Dembe looks “like he’s seen a ghost” ]
Aram: Oh, is this bad? Oh, this seems bad.
Dembe: I cannot go back yet. I need proof. There’s one last thing I must do.
Aram: Okay, uh, go. You better go. Do what you gotta do to help Mr. Reddington, but do it fast.
[ Dembe leaves as Ressler and Samar are arriving. Ressler takes chase. Aram watches on his laptop as Ressler chases Dembe. He locks and unlocks doors as needed to assist Dembe’s escape ]
Ressler: Dembe, stop!
[ Ressler points his gun at Dembe through the glass window of a locked door ]
Ressler: Dembe! Don’t make me shoot you!
Dembe: I didn’t do anything.
Ressler: Then come in. Prove it.
Dembe: That’s my plan. But I need the proof.
[ Aram becomes alarmed that Ressler might shoot Dembe ]
Aram: Dembe. No. No, no. Ressler, no.

Cooper: What were you thinking?
Aram: He needed my help.
Ressler: Well, you didn’t have to help him escape. If he’s on the level, we all could’ve helped. …
Cooper: Did you find anything that would exonerate Dembe?
Aram: Honestly, I don’t know. We found a name– Kathryn Nemec.
Cooper: Run her down and find out what you can. …
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Red: It’s hypnotic.
Vanessa Vasquez: I suppose it was only a matter of time before one of you figured it out and showed up.
Red: … I’m not one of your parents’ clients.
Liz: But we know what you’re doing to them.… We know you made deals with some of your prison therapy patients.
Red: We just don’t know why.
Vanessa: When I was a child, this place was a backbone of our honey business. My father knew a guy that
needed a hideout. And he helped. And then another showed up. And another one.… The fortune my parents made hiding criminals was in a Vulcan safe in our basement. The only people that knew that were the criminals that passed through. Someone came back and tried to steal the money. But while cutting through the lock with an acetylene torch, they set the house on fire. I was the only one that survived. Apitherapy is the only thing I’ve found effective in fighting the infection. …
Liz: You have no idea which client did this, so you’re killing them all.
Vanessa: If their file is in my parents’ ledger, they deserve punishment for one thing or the other.
Red: There’s an entry in that ledger I need to see. For your sake, I hope it’s not crossed off.
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
[ Red searches the ledger. He tears out a page ]

Cooper: Kathryn Nemec is missing?
Aram: Yeah, she disappeared in 1991, just dropped off the grid. Lived at a few addresses in the Midwest in her 30s. Worked at an exclusive domestic staffing agency, but then one day she’s just gone. And there is
no more record.
Cooper: You say this Nemec, she’s the one who was attacking Reddington? …
Aram: Yeah, I cannot explain it, but had you seen Dembe’s face when he saw her name – It was like he’d seen a ghost. …
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Isabella Zuma: Mr. Reddington. How did you find me? …
Red: I need to speak with your father, Isabella.
Isabella: Speak with him? What do you mean? Where is he? … [S]omething’s happened?
Red: I hope not, but I won’t know until I find him.
Isabella: Does he want you to find him?
Red: He does not, but I have to. And I must insist on your help to do so.
Isabella: Sometimes he sends me packages. Pre-paid cellphones with one number saved for emergencies. …
༺✦ ♤ ✦༻

[ Cellphone ringing ]
Dembe: Are you okay, Isabella?
Red: Yes, she’s okay.
Dembe: What are you doing there, Raymond?
Red: Trying to find you. … What are you doing, Dembe? Because everything you seem to be doing is making you look guilty.
Dembe: We’re both guilty, Raymond. I came here to see for myself. She’s not here.
Red: Who– who’s not? What are you saying?
[An arrow hits Dembe in the leg]
Dembe: Ah! Ah!

Red: Dembe? Dembe? Dembe?

[ The Hunter catches up with Dembe ]
The Hunter: I know who you are. You and that fella in the hat brought Kate out here. Two men against an unarmed woman. That was cowardly. And you still couldn’t get the job done. You didn’t know she survived, did you? Ol’ Kate flat out refused to die. She warned me about you.… Kate told me you’d be back. I’ve been waiting. I’m gonna kill you both for what you did to her. Now, where is your slick-suited

Aram: Agent Mojtabai.
Red: What did you and Dembe find, Aram? … I spoke to him. He began to tell me something. But he was attacked.
Aram: Attacked? …
Red: He released you. Why? Did you discover something?
Aram: We did. We found a name. Kathryn Nemec.
Red: [ Shocked ] S-Say that again.
Aram: Kathryn Nemec. But she’s been missing since 1991.

༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
Red: A man’s greatest enemy is the dark forces pent up within himself. But not for me. My dark forces had a name. A person I entrusted with the most heinous offenses of my life. Every trespass I committed, expunged. Cleansed as if it had never happened. My confessor who doth now condemn me.
Liz: What are you talking about?
Red: Kathryn Nemec.
Liz: Now who is Kathryn Nemec?
Red: A name that came to represent my darkest hours. My friend. [ Smacks lips ] Mr. Kaplan.
Liz: Mr. Kaplan? She’s alive. [ Tears ]
Red: When I pulled the trigger, I– I left without checking. I would never have been so careless if there wasn’t a part of me that wished I hadn’t done what I
had just done. It’s been her all along. Retribution for what I did to her.
Liz: Can the score be even now? Can this be over?
Red: All I know is I need to find Dembe.

Red: I’m sorry, Dembe.
Liz: Who did this to you?
Dembe: A man. He found Kate. He’s injured in his left knee.

Samar: It doesn’t matter.
Aram: It does to me. I-I’m sorry that I’m– Hey. Can I tell you something I admire about you?
Samar: I would rather you didn’t.
Aram: Your intensity. The way you talk and think. The way you do the job.
Samar: Stop it.
Aram: I don’t just admire it. I’m also terrified by it. And by what it would do to me if we got too close.
Samar: How’s this for terrifying? I couldn’t care less what you admire.
[ Samar gets in the elevator. The elevator doors creak and clang shut ]

[ Inside his cabin, The Hunter is tied to a chair ]
Red: I can appreciate the kindness you showed to an injured woman in need. It’s commendable, as is your loyalty to her. … But you do need to call her.
The Hunter: She was right about you. Said you were very dangerous and absolutely relentless… Kate’s also very dangerous and absolutely relentless. Guess she learned that from you. If I’d been in your shoes, I’d have made damn sure I didn’t miss.
Red: Yes, that was a mistake I won’t make again. Call her.
The Hunter: Seems to me I’m not gonna survive this either way.
Red: This may seem ironic considering the circumstances, but I abhor violence. I only resort to it in times of extreme necessity. So believe me when I say, this is both extreme and necessary.
[ Gun cocks. Red holds his pistol to The Hunter’s forehead ]
Red: Call her.
The Hunter: [ Dialing ] She said you’d do this. [ Chuckles ]
Red: She said I’d do what exactly?
The Hunter: Underestimate her.

Your friends, uhm– the black fella and the man in the hat, Reddington– they’re here. You said they’d kill me to get you. If this is the last time you hear my voice, know that I didn’t give you up. And I didn’t go down without a fight. You told me, if he ever figured out you’re still alive, he’d come at you full bore. Well, lock and load, Katie. Your war has come.
