🔴 Script 5:8 Ian Garvey (№ 13)

Brief: Tom has been taken hostage by a sinister man (Ian Garvey) and has promised to lead him to Red to save his own life, after Garvey ruthlessly killed both Lena Mercer and Pete McGee when they proved useless to him in helping him get to Red. Garvey now has the mysterious suitcase full of bones. Crespin, the man who was following Lena (who it turns out was working for Red all along), has reported this news to Red – to Red’s genuine alarm. Liz still knows not a thing about the existence of the suitcase left for her by Mr Kaplan to reveal a dark secret of Red’s, or of the fact that it had anything to do with Nik’s death – not to mention anything of the game of cat-and-mouse Tom and Red have been playing as Tom has tried to determine the identity of the skeleton the suitcase contains, which Red has warned Tom must remain forever a secret.

༺✦ ♤ ✦༻
 
[ Liz steps off the elevator at the Post Office ]
Liz: [ On phone ] I’m sure you’re fine and I’m overreacting. And you just can’t answer your phone, because for some reason that we’ll both be laughing about this time tomorrow, but something is wrong. And something–
Recording: If you’re satisfied with your message, please press 1.
Cooper: What is it?
Recording: If you would like to record–
Liz: Tom. He’s missing.

 
[ Tom’s wrists are bound in front of him as he kneels in the barn where he is being held. The bodies of Lena Mercer and Pete McGee are next to him. Tom crawls over to Lena’s body and sees a chain with a thin metal pendant she is wearing. It is stamped with the words “I am enough.” He reaches to remove the pendant ]
Tom: I’m sorry.
[ Tom closes Lena’s eyes ]
[ DOOR OPENS ] [ Ian Garvey enters ]
Tom: She didn’t even know anything. Neither did he.
Garvey: He had the bones. She was looking for them. They knew enough. The question is, what you know. Reddington sent you after the suitcase. Did he tell you why?
Tom: He didn’t tell me anything.
Garvey: No, I don’t think he did. The last thing he’d want is for you to ID these bones. But you couldn’t resist, could you, Tom? So you and your friends ran a DNA search through CODIS. Thank you for that, by the way. Curiosity killed these cats, but for me, it’s a gift that’s gonna keep on giving. Whatever you imagine the answer might be, it’s better than that. Reddington’s power is legendary. With this, I control that power. You’re going to set up a meeting between us so I can tell him the good news. But in case you’ve had a change of heart–
[ Switch snaps, MACHINE WHIRRING ]
[ Men load Lena’s body into a chute. It is emulsified, gore splashing against against a vinyl screen and splattering onto Tom ]

 
[ Red’s man Crespin is positioned some distance from the barn, looking through binoculars. He is on the phone with Red who is in his Mercedes as Dembe drives ]
Crespin: Yeah, I have eyes.
Red: How many?
Crespin: Uh. Five hostiles, maybe more.
Red: Tom and the others?
Crespin: Status unknown. But–
Red: But what?
Crespin: Raymond. It’s not good.
Red: We’re 20 minutes away. I want an update in 10.
[ CELLPHONE BEEPS ]
Dembe: We should have backup.
Red: Too many people know about this situation already. This needs to end now.
[ CELLPHONE RINGS ] [ CELLPHONE BEEPS ]
Red: Yes?
Tom: It’s me. I did what you hired me to do. I got the package.
[ Red quickly perceives that Tom is attempting to mislead his captors ]
Red: Any problems?
Tom: Nope. Piece of cake.
Red: Where are you now?
Tom: Motel in Stone Ridge, 546 Roscoe Lane, Room 16.
Red: I can be there in half-an-hour.
Garvey: You three with me. The rest, deal with him.
[ Bobby Navarro, Garvey’s lead henchman, holds up a large yellow envelope ]
Navarro: Hey, what about this?
Garvey: That stays. The last thing I want is that thing anywhere near Reddington.
[ Navarro puts the envelope inside the suitcase with the bones ]
Tom: I did what you asked, now let me go.
[ Garvey slugs⚡️Tom, knocking him off his chair ]
Garvey: Plastic stays, too. Any trouble, he joins his pals.
[ Garvey leaves ]

 
Recording: Hey, it’s Tom. Leave a message. I will call you back. [ BEEP ]
Liz: Me again. And again and again.
Recording: This mailbox is full and cannot accept messages at this time.
Samar: We issued a BOLO. Sent a message to every field office.
Liz: I’m sorry to put you guys through this. I’m sure I’m overreacting.
Samar: Don’t take this the wrong way, but are you sure you know everything Tom is up to?
Liz: I thought I did. I don’t know.

 
[ CELLPHONE BEEPS ] [ CELLPHONE RINGING ]
Liz: Reddington, anything?
Red: I just spoke to you 20 minutes ago.
Liz: You said you had a lead.
Red: On Nik Korpal’s death.
Liz: But you think the two are related?
Red: Elizabeth, I’m doing what I can. I’m sure Harold is, as well.
Liz: I know. I’m trying to convince myself everything’s fine, but I’m doing a terrible job.
Red: Tom is capable of getting himself both into and out of trouble. If he’s in harm’s way, I am quite certain he’s put in motion an escape plan, about which the people holding him are completely unaware.
⋘⋙
[ Tom finds Lena’s metal pendant among the gore ]
⋘⋙
Liz: But who would be holding him and why? Did he take a job he didn’t tell me about?
Red: It appears so. I’m sorry. I know that’s not the answer you want to hear.
Liz: Well, call me if you find anything out.

 
Ressler: Got a hit on Tom’s car. Impound lot towed it in last night.
Liz: Towed from where?

 
[ The Red Birch Motel ] [ BELL RINGS ] [ SOFT MUSIC PLAYS ON RADIO ]
Ressler: Agents Ressler and Keen, FBI.
Liz: [ Shows Tom’s photo ] We have reason to believe this man was here last night. Have you seen him?
Clerk: Can’t say.
Liz: His car was impounded outside Room 11.
Clerk: Don’t know anything about that.
Ressler: The old “can’t say, don’t know,” huh?
Clerk: I mind my own business.
Liz: Room 11. Can we get the key?
Clerk: Sure. Soon as you get a warrant.
Liz: You know what? Forget the key.

 
[ Ressler kicks in⚡️the door of Room 11. There are signs of violence – blood on a pillow, a cracked mirror also bloody ]
Ressler: We don’t know Tom was here.
Liz: His car was parked outside!
Ressler: All right, he came to the motel.
Liz: In front of this room!
Ressler: Maybe this was the only space, Liz.
Liz: [ Dialing ] I’ve called Tom so many times, his mailbox is full. It’s pointless. But hearing his voice is the only thing that calms me down.
Ressler: I’m gonna call CSI. If Tom was here, they’ll know.
[ CELLPHONE RINGING ] [ Under a pile of covers, they find a phone indicating calls from “Liz.” Tom’s phone ]

 
[ Tom saws at his plastic wrist binding with the pendant from Lena’s necklace ]
Tom: Hey, mind if I sit?
Navarro: Knock yourself out.
Tom: Yeah, well, can I get a hand?
Navarro: [ LAUGHS ] [ SIGHS ] Gosh, anything else I can do for you?
Tom: Yeah, you could give me your gun.
Navarro: [ LAUGHS ] Looks like we’ve got ourselves a comedian.
[ Navarro reaches down to help Tom to his feet. Tom has cut his bindings free. He grabs the chair and smashes it over Navarro’s head, then takes his gun ]
[ 💥💥💥 Gunfight 💥💥💥 ] [ Several goons fall ]
Tom: Not that funny, is it?
[ Tom runs out ]

 
[ The barn ] [ CELLPHONE RINGS ] [ 💥💥💥 GUNSHOTS 💥💥💥 IN DISTANCE ]
Garvey: What?
Navarro: He got away.
Garvey: The suitcase?
[ Navarro looks. The suitcase is gone – Tom has it ]
Garvey: You need to get it back.
Navarro: What about Reddington?
Garvey: Reddington’s not coming. He was never coming.

 
[ Tom runs through the forest with two goons following, exchanging 💥💥💥 GUNSHOTS 💥💥💥 ] [ Tom comes upon a highway. A Mercedes appears, slows. Tom aims his gun at it ]
[ TIRES SCREECH ] [ Red throws open the door. Tom freezes ]
Ressler: Get in! Tom!
[ GUNSHOT 💥Tom is hit, he falls down ]
Red: Ah, hell.
[ Tom gets up and gets in the car ]
[ TIRES SQUEAL, ENGINE REVS ]
[ 💥💥 GUNSHOTS 💥💥 ~ The goons shoot at the car ]
Red: I warned you about this damn suitcase. Now look at you.

 
[ Red’s car has pulled over in a wooded area. Dembe is working under the hood ]
Dembe: They hit the radiator and oil pan.
Red: They’ll be here soon.
Tom: Who will? Who are they?
Red: I was hoping you could tell us.
Tom: Nik had a friend, took DNA off the bones, ran a match, and got killed for his trouble, so did Nik.
Red: And Lena?
Tom: How do you know about her?
[ Red is using his tie to hold in place a compress for the wound in Tom’s shoulder. He tightens it ]
Tom: Aah!
Red: We have to move. I warned you and your friends.
Tom: My friends. The guy who threatened Lena, told her to stop looking – he worked for you.
Red: You need to keep that compressed.
[ Red takes the suitcase ]
Dembe: Which way?
Red: Away from the road. West. Can you walk?
Tom: Guess we’ll find out. [ GROANS ]

 
Ressler: According to this manager, Room 11 was rented to a Steven Smith. But the license he used was a fake, and he paid cash for the room.
Cooper: Any surveillance video? CCTV?
Ressler: The manager won’t give it to us without a warrant. It’s a work-in-progress.
Cooper: There was a struggle. Did anyone hear anything?
Samar: We interviewed guests, neighbors, the cleaning crew. Nothing.
Aram: [ Walking over ] I don’t know where Tom went after the motel, but I do know where he was before he went there. A gas station on Highway 211, east of Warrenton.
Liz: How do you know that?
Aram: I hacked the navigation system on his car. Uh, so, now it may be a coincidence, but based on the time log, it looks as if he was there at the same time the station was being vandalized.
Cooper: Ressler, Keen, get to the scene, talk to the station owner. [ To Liz: ] Whatever Tom is doing, I’m sure he’s got a good reason for doing it.

 
[ Tom, Dembe and Red make their way through the woods ] [ 🔘 See Note ]
Tom: Ah, maybe you were right. If I’d left well enough alone, none of this would’ve happened.
Red: Please spare me your regret.
Tom: Ah. I only did it, because you lied.
[ They see a large ranch house ]
Red: We need water, first aid.
Dembe: Stay here. I’ll see if it’s safe.
Red: Come on.
[ HORSE WHINNIES IN DISTANCE ]
[ Tom sits on the ground, Red on the suitcase ]
Red: [ Tapping suitcase ] This is a secret, not a lie.
Tom: A secret you’ve been keeping from Liz, like you always do. Like you have from the very beginning.

Flashback:
Bill McCready (“The Major”): The assignment’s deep cover. No timeline, no price tag. This may seem like a cake walk, but it’s the kind of assignment that makes me nervous. Our contractor has deep pockets. Demands the best, insists on anonymity.
[ Tom looks at the portfolio on Liz ]
Tom: She’s cute.
McCready: That’s one more thing he insists on. Your job’s to be the friend of a friend, get to know this Milhoan, not to get involved with her. Just be a friend of a friend. You get that?

Red: You couldn’t leave well enough alone. Not then, not now.
Tom: You hired me to spy on Liz.
Red: I hired you to protect her.
⋘⋙
[ Dembe returns ]
Dembe: No one is home.
Red: We go in, get fixed up, and get out. They can’t be far behind.

 
[ Garvey and goons have found the abandoned Mercedes ]
Garvey: They wouldn’t backtrack towards the compound. The highway runs north and south, too risky. Notify the others. They’re headed west.

 
[ The gas station near Warrenton ]
VA State Police Officer: Between 4:30 and 5:00, a man and a woman entered the store. The woman distracted the clerk while her accomplice went into the back room unnoticed.
Liz: Have you identified either suspect?
Officer: Got a surveillance shot of the woman, ID’d as Lena Mercer.
Ressler: Any address or, uh, place of work?
Officer: Both. But she moved out of her apartment on leave from her job.
Liz: And her accomplice?
Officer: Caucasian, 30s. To be honest with you, since nothing was taken, we’re not looking real hard. You mind telling me why you are?
Ressler: You said he went in the back. Why?
Officer: Employee on duty says he was looking at surveillance tapes.

 
[ Back room of the gas station ]
Ressler: Police report said Tom pulled surveillance off two cameras. Station manager’s best guess is he was looking at this.
Liz: Okay. And the other camera? There. Stop the tape. Can you zoom in on that car? What is that, a hotel key?
Ressler: The Red Birch.
Liz: That must be Steve Smith.
Ressler: Tom and this Lena, clearly they came here looking for this guy. They see the room key, and go to the motel where there’s a fight, and the three of them are now in the wind. They’re on the run. But why?
Liz: Well, we have her name and the VIN number on his car, so let’s circulate both, put a BOLO out, and we’ll find them. And when we find them, we find Tom.

 
[ The ranch house in the woods ]
[ WATER RUNNING ] [ Tom rinses his shoulder in the kitchen sink ] [ WATER SHUTS OFF ]
⋘⋙
[ Dembe flips back the tarp covering a ‘70s-ish model sedan in the garage. He gets inside ] [ ENGINE SPUTTERS ]
⋘⋙
[ Red searches for things to assist in First Aid – a bottle of spirits, sewing items ]
[ Tom eyes the suitcase on the floor sitting next to Red’s black duffel ]
Red: Your curiosity is understandable. A mysterious suitcase bequeathed to you by a dying woman who insists that Elizabeth must be apprised of its contents. But what if instead of happiness or closure, giving it to her has the opposite effect?
[ Red takes off his suit jacket, rolls up his sleeves ]
Tom: It won’t.
Red: How can you be so sure?
Tom: Because you don’t want her to know about it.
[ Red pours the spirits over the gunshot wound in Tom’s shoulder ]
TOM: [ INHALES SHARPLY ] [ GROANS LIGHTLY ]
[ Red begins suturing Tom’s wound ]
Red: You’ve always seen my relationship with Elizabeth as a zero-sum game. You think what’s good for me is bad for her and what’s good for her is bad for me.
Tom: Only when it comes to things she cares about.
Red: Like you?
Tom: Ah, you made it clear from the beginning how you felt about me.

Flashback:
McCready: The contractor is livid. You weren’t supposed to get involved with the mark.
Tom: Her name is Elizabeth.
McCready: I don’t care if she’s Queen Elizabeth and screwing her made you king. Get out. He will kill you if you don’t.

Red: You’ll need clothes.
Tom: Ah, admit it, ­you’re kind of enjoying this.
Red: It would’ve been so much easier if the bullet had hit you just another foot to the northeast. [ Taps Tom’s head ]

 
[ Dembe is working under the hood of the car. He hears distant footsteps, draws his firearm. Red, too, has heard something, looks out the front door then closes it and moves away ]
Red: We stayed too long.
[ Tom is in the kitchen, putting his shirt into the duffel. Red points at the duffel ]
Red: Put it back.
Tom: You can trust me.
Red: No, I can’t. I hired you to do a job. The rules were explicit and you violated them.
[ Both are monitoring the arrival of the Garvey’s goons in the sprawling yard ]
Tom: Let it go already.
Red: You’re unreliable.
Tom: Yeah, well, I fell in love.
Red: That’s no excuse.
Tom: I wasn’t making one.
Red: Shh. [ Red ducks ] If we’re not surrounded, we will be soon.
[ Red grabs the suitcase and walks out of the room ]

 
Aram: We got a match on the VIN number from Mr. Smith’s car. His real name is Peter Alan McGee, resident of Largo, Maryland.
Samar: His prints were in the system?
Aram: Yes, and not because of priors, which he has, but because he’s wanted for questioning in the murder of one – Nik Korpal.
Liz: Wanted why?
Aram: Well, according to police records, McGee received a call from Nik on the night of his death, just two hours before his body was found.
Ressler: And he’s been MIA ever since.
Liz: That’s was Tom was up to. He was trying to find out who killed Nik.
Cooper: Ressler, reach out to MPDC. If McGee’s a person of interest, they’ll have a current file, a list of contacts. Navabi, get in touch with the DC field office, let ’em know this is a priority. I want Bureau-wide resources digging into McGee’s life. Financials, cell records. I want to know everything there is to know about this kid.

 
[ Ian Garvey’s man kicks open the door of the house ]
Garvey: Check the property! They’re here.
[ Garvey walks through the house. He picks up a cloth doll with long dark hair from a small dresser, smells its hair, then places the doll down on a bureau. The image of the doll turns upside-down ]
[ In the attic, Tom removes a ventilator shaft so he and Red can watch the goons below ]
⋘⋙
[ GARAGE DOOR OPENS ] [ A man enters and searches, but fails to see Dembe hiding on the floor of the front passenger compartment ]
⋘⋙
[ Men search the house as Tom and Red watch from above. A few drops of blood from Tom’s arm fall through the vent, startling a man below. He looks up. Red blasts💥the man through the vent ] [GRUNTS]
⋘⋙
[ ENGINE STARTS, REVS ] [ TIRES SQUEAL ] [ Dembe rams the car⚡️into the man who is searching the garage, sending him flying ]
⋘⋙
[ Red and Tom hurry down the attic stairs. A man blindsides Red, hitting⚡️him in the temple with a rifle butt. Red shoots💥him. At the floor level of the house, another man steps out with a gun. Red shoots💥him ]
[ Red goes outside ]
[ Tom finds a bar. He tears strips of cloth from napkins and stuffs the strips into two bottles of liquor. A goon appears. Tom shoots him 💥 ]
⋘⋙
[ The man Dembe hit with the car blasts💥out the rear window with his shotgun. Dembe puts the car in reverse, floors the gas pedal and runs him over⚡️]
[ Dembe gets out of the car to assist Red ]
[ 💥💥💥 Gunfight continues 💥💥💥 ]
[ Red puts the suitcase in the car ]
[ Garvey and one of his men run toward their vehicles ]
[ Tom runs out of the house with the two lit Molotov cocktails and tosses them into the goons’ two cars. The cars erupt in flames 🔥🔥 ]
[ Red and Dembe continue shooting 💥💥💥 against the backdrop of the flaming cars. They all get in the car when Tom shows up. The car speeds away ]

 
[ At a gas station, Dembe stands outside the car pumping gas. Tom and Red are in the back seat ]
Tom: Well, that was fun. Oh, man. If you don’t trust me by now… This whole father-in-law hates his son-in-law thing, it’s a cliché. Could we just put a stake in it? You go first. Who’s in the suitcase?
Red: [ Pause ] I was in the Andes when I heard you and Elizabeth were engaged. Agents in the Columbian government had solicited my help negotiating the release of soldiers being held by FARC rebels. At the time, I was a rare intermediary having brokered sales of arms and equipment to both sides of the conflict. I was unable to return until the day of your wedding. Seeing her that day–
Tom: Wait a minute. You were at our wedding?
Red: She was incandescent. I’d come out of the mountains, blinded by rage, flown 2300 miles, absolutely certain that you must die. And then – I saw Elizabeth. I’m a violent man, a terrible, powerful, violent man. But the way she looked at you, the way she loves you – I’m powerless against that.
Tom: You’re not gonna tell me who’s in the suitcase. Or are you?
Red: I’ll say this for you, you’ve always believed that you were acting in her best interest. Selling me out to Berlin, faking her death – you always thought you were helping her.
Tom: I appreciate you saying that. I should change.
Red: You make her happy.
[ Tom gets out of the car with the duffel bag ]
[ Dembe gets in ]
Red: What? You’re always telling me to make peace. I made peace.
Dembe: You’re still lying to him and to Elizabeth. Until you stop lying, there will be no peace.
[ Tom has been gone too long for Red’s comfort. He opens the suitcase. Instead of the skeleton, it contains weapons. Red and Dembe rush into the gas station and into the men’s room looking for Tom, but he has escaped through a window to the garage ]

 
Aram: Hey, we got a hit. The detectives investigating McGee were just called to a site with multiple homicides. Absolutely horrific scene, but they were able to confirm one of the victims – Peter Alan McGee.
Liz: And the others?
Aram: Well, they didn’t, um, uh–
Liz: Text me when you get an address. Call me when you know more. Ressler, let’s go.

 
[ The homicide scene at the barn ]
[ POLICE RADIO CHATTER ] [ CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICKING ]
[ Pete’s body is laid out on a table. Other bodies are scattered. The bloody vinyl curtain and gory pulp everywhere are too much for Liz ]
Ressler: It’s okay, Keen. He’s okay.
Liz: Where is he?
Ressler: Look, Tom’s a big boy.
Liz: But whoever he’s mixed up is capable of this– [ CRYING ]
Ressler: Keen, Keen, come here.
[ He pulls her against his shoulder ]
Liz: [ CRYING ] I can’t.
Ressler: ­Shh.
Liz: Ressler, I can’t.
Ressler: It’s okay. It’s gonna be okay.
Liz: [ SOBS ]

 
[ Union Station in DC ]

Announcement on PA: Attention, please. This is a boarding call for train MARC 310 to Baltimore with intermediary stops at Carrollton, Seabrook, Bowie State, Odenton MARC, and BWI Airport. If you’re a passenger, stay on the train to Baltimore. Passengers should be cautious of the gap between the platform and the train pulling into the main station. Thank you for choosing to ride the MARC 310 today.

[ Tom sits down on a bench, opens the duffel and removes the large yellow envelope. It is labeled “DNA RESULTS.” He takes out the report and reads ]

[ Liz’s CELLPHONE VIBRATES ]
Liz: Keen.
Tom: Liz.
Liz: Oh, my God, Tom. I’ve been worried sick about you. Please tell me you’re okay?
Tom: I’m okay.
Liz: What’s going on? Where are you?
Tom: Liz, I need to see you right now.
Liz: Tom, what’s wrong?
Tom: Listen to me, okay? I need you to do exactly what I say. Do not tell anyone that we spoke or that you even know I’m okay.
Liz: What are you talking about? I’ve got half the FBI looking for you.
Tom: I need to see you alone, all right? Have Rosa take Agnes, go to the house, and make sure that nobody follows you.
Liz: Tom, tell me what’s going on.
Tom: I figured it out, the whole thing. Why Nik was killed, all of it.
Liz: Tom, you’re scaring me.
Tom: Just go to the house. Meet me there, and when it’s safe, babe, I’m gonna explain everything.
[ CELLPHONE BEEPS ]

 
[ CELLPHONE RINGS ] [ CELLPHONE BEEPS ]
Aram: Mr. Reddington?
Red: Aram, have you spoken to Elizabeth?
Aram: No. Why?
Red: I believe Tom Keen is once again entangled in some nasty business, and I worry he may be involving Elizabeth.
Aram: Might explain why she’s missing.
Red: What do you mean, “missing”?
Aram: She was with Agent Ressler at a crime scene following up on a lead, looking for Tom when she she just vanished.
Red: Have you tried to reach her?
Aram: Yes. She’s not picking up. Her cell is going straight to voicemail. Um, in fact, I think she may have shut off the GPS signal in her phone, because when I tried to track her, it’s gone.
Red: Do you have any other way of contacting her?
Aram: We’re looking. When I couldn’t get a trace, I pulled the call log from her service provider. It appears that the last call she received was just under 12 minutes ago from a pay phone at Union Station.
Red: Tom. [ Clicks phone shut ] He’s at Union Station.

 
[ Union Station. Tom walks by a guy about his height and build, making off with his wheeled travel bag ]
[ In the men’s room, Tom changes clothes ]
[ INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS ] [ GROANS ] [ WATER RUNNING ] [ GROANS ]

Over PA: Tom Keen, please pick up a red courtesy. Mr. Tom Keen, please pick up a red courtesy phone.

[ Tom picks up a courtesy phone ]
Red: This is a horrible mistake. Whatever you’re doing, whatever it is you think you’re going to tell Elizabeth, this is a mistake. Walk away from this, Tom.
Tom: You know I can’t do that.
Red: And why is that?
Tom: Because I know the truth. I know everything. And now Liz is gonna know, too.

 
[ Liz arrives at the house ]
Liz: Tom! Oh, my God! ­I have no idea what’s going– [ GASPS ]
[ Tom is tied to a chair, beaten, duct tape over his mouth ]
[ Liz draws her gun but two men behind her have theirs drawn ]
Garvey: You must be the wife. What’s your name, darling?
[ Liz punches⚡️him. The two men grab her ]
Garvey: Get her in a chair!
Liz: No! No! [ GRUNTS ]
[ Liz fights and punches ⚡️] [ Tom rises from his chair but with hands bound can’t do much. One goon⚡️punches him to the floor, where Garvey kicks⚡️him ]
Garvey: [ To Liz ] You sure are a little spitfire, aren’t you?
[ Navarro comes out with the duffel bag with the bones and DNA results inside ]
Navarro: Found it! In the kid’s room. It’s all here.
[ Garvey opens a large switchblade ]
Liz: No, please! What do you want? Please!
Garvey: [ To Tom ] I like to think I’m the kind of man who’d politely ask you to stop this, to let this end here, but I can tell you’re the kind of guy who won’t get the message and stop. So we’re gonna need to make sure you stop. So– [ To Liz ] Sorry about this.
[ Garvey stabs 🔪Tom in the stomach while two men restrain Liz ]
Liz: No! No!
[ Garvey stabs 🔪again ]
Tom: [ Grunts ]
Liz: No!!
Tom: [ GROANS ]
Liz: No!!
Tom: [ GROANS WEAKLY ]
[ Liz tries to break free. Someone hits ⚡️Liz hard on the side of the head. She is stunned, loses her balance. Liz’s head⚡️cracks against the hard floor, bounces and⚡️hits the floor again ]
[ Her subsequent scenes are seen through her blurred vision and diminished awareness ]

 
Dembe: What makes you think they’re at the house?
Red: He’s in trouble, he’s desperate. But he won’t leave without Elizabeth and Agnes.
Dembe: You haven’t asked my opinion.
Red: No, I haven’t.
Dembe: Why can’t you be honest with her?
Red: I don’t know. I don’t know.
Dembe: Even after everything that’s happened? All that’s been lost?

༺✦ ♤ ✦༻

 
 
Trivia: This was the last scene Ryan Eggold filmed, according to this interview: EntertainmentWeekly, Natalie Abrams (11/15/2017): The Blacklist star Ryan Eggold on Tom Keen’s ultimate fate http://bit.ly/2AKLiDS
photo: Getty Images via http://alyblacklist.tumbler.com
//➔ I think the cake says: “Oh the places you go/ Bon Voyage”

EW: Was that car scene where Liz and Tom are near death your final scene?

Ryan Eggold: No, shooting-wise, it was shot fairly out of order, which was really hard with this episode, because there were different emotional states, but also because of the various states of blood, the various states of gunshot versus stab wounds versus beatings versus in the woods versus changing in the train station. It was a lot of change for Tom in this episode. The very last thing that I shot was sitting with James outside the farmhouse and talking about how this is a secret, not a lie. That was the last thing that I shot.

🔘 (Return to scene in script)

 
⋙ I have never worked so hard on editing a Blacklist script for this blog. It was like it was written so the action and lyrics were perfectly choreographed to work together. I tried to capture that. This is now my favorite episode of the series (eclipsing “Cape May”), though “favorite” hardly describes the emotional turmoil of working on it. The Sound of Silence has long been my favorite song. It will never be the same for me again. And Invictus, so perfect an anthem for Red. – LB90

Still remains
Within the sound of silence

Invictus
By William Ernest Hensley (1875)

Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
     My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
    Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
     How charged with punishments the scroll,
[ Voice wavering: ] I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

Episode 5:8 Ian Garvey is available as a Twitter “Moment” (or two or three). Results vary by browser and app. Advantages are it’s chronological and the photos and captions are together. Also, Twitter photos are higher resolution than the WordPress photos on this blog. Disadvantages: Each Moment can include no than 100 Tweets (so there are sometimes more than one Moment per episode). And, for best results, you will want a Twitter account. (You can do what Red would do and use an alias: the only real info it requires is a phone number to make sure you’re not a bot.)
