🔴 Script 6:6 The Ethicist (№ 91)

Brief (Where we’re at): Despite Dembe’s attempts to run interference, cracks are beginning to show in Red’s business alliances, now that he is being held in prison awaiting trial. The story is being widely covered in the media. Worse, Red’s first attempt to gain his freedom has failed, with the judge ruling that the unregistered firearm he was carrying when arrested is admissible as evidence. The serial number was scratched off of the weapon, making it a federal crime. If the ruling stands on appeal, this is a felony that will invalidate his Immunity Agreement with the Department of Justice and he will have to stand trial for numerous crimes meriting the death penalty. The Judge has refused to let him personally listen to the tape recording of the tip the police received that led to his arrest. He is determined to access the recording to find out who made the call and betrayed him. (Hint: It was Liz.)

Liz and her half-sister Jennifer (aka Lillian Roth) plotted to have Red detained so they can learn his true identity. Red has no idea that they found out that the skeleton he thought was gone forever belonged to their father, the real Raymond Reddington. They intend to contact a man who shared the same plastic surgeon who changed Red’s identity 30 years ago when he assumed the identity of their father. The man’s name is Gerald Todd Klepper. It’s possible he remembers Red and can help unveil the mystery of Red’s true identity.

Tamerlane: I’ve been accused of being a lot of things.

♪ But I don’t want – him to stay

Tamerlane: [U]nemotional, cold, a risk-inclined agitator whose own board sometimes feels he’s a liability.

[ DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS ]
Tamerlane: [B]ut it is no secret that our e-commerce market share is expanding much faster than anticipated. That means fulfillment is the bottleneck for real growth, which is why I am here to announce that Chione will be opening a brand-new, state-of-the-art distribution facility in Malaysia by the end of next year.
[ AUDIENCE MURMURING ] [ Applause ]

 
[ People are lined up for autographs and to have their photos taken with Digby Tamerlane ]
[ CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICKING ]
Tamerlane: [ Greeting people ] All right. Oh, hey.
[ CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKS ]
Tamerlane: All right.
Gerald Todd Klepper: Mr. Tamerlane? It’s a pleasure.
Tamerlane: Oh, thank you very much. Would you, uh, like a photo together?
Klepper: Oh, eh, it’s okay. I’m here on business. It’s about that incident near Rock Creek Park.
[ Tamerlane flashes back to the accident scene ]
Tamerlane: Uh [ CHUCKLES ] – I’m sorry, your name was?
Klepper: I’m not the only one who knows. I’m afraid there’s some real legal jeopardy coming your way – a credible witness, a grand jury.
Tamerlane: Who the hell are you? How do you–
Klepper: Please, let’s not talk here. Uh, just come see me alone.
[ Klepper gives Tamerlane a card reading “Nate & Ted’s RV Park” ]
Klepper: I think I can be of assistance.

 
[ Federal Courtroom in the Southern District of New York ]
Judge Roberta Wilkins: We are on record this morning in the matter of The United States v.
Raymond Reddington on charges of treason in connection to the sale of classified data to Russian Intelligence. Is the government ready to proceed to trial?
Asst US Attorney Michael Sima: We are, Your Honor.
Judge Wilkins: And the defense?
Red: We are not. Uh, the royal “we” – me. I am not.
[ HORN HONKS IN DISTANCE ]
Judge Wilkins: Dare I ask why?
Red: Like it or not, I have to be open to the idea that there may be certain mental abnormalities that are the cause of my criminal conduct.
Sima: As delighted as the government is that Mr. Reddington has stated on the record that his conduct is criminal, whether mental disease caused his crimes is a question for a jury to decide if and when he raises an insanity defense. I don’t see what possible connection that has to whether he’s prepared to move to trial.
Red: Well, I cannot proceed to trial until I know how to [ CHUCKLING ] defend myself, or whether I can even self-advocate in an effective way.
Judge Wilkins: You know the facts. That’s generally a good start.
Red: And if the facts indicate that I’m not competent to stand trial?
Sima: Defense counsel succeeded in convincing Your Honor to uphold his Immunity Agreement. H-He may be crazy like a fox–
Red: [ LAUGHS ]
Sima: –but he’s not crazy.
Red: While I’ve come to appreciate the innate facility Mr. Sima has with the obvious cliché, I’m sure the Court is aware that, on the subject of my mental health, his opinion is just that – his opinion. I’d prefer to take the Court’s recommendation and base my defense on the facts.
Judge Wilkins: The only relevant fact is that there is no motion concerning the defendant’s mental health before the court.
Red: I am making that motion now, as is my right under the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. Therefore, I ask for the court’s indulgence because I appear before you in pro per, and also possibly mad as a hatter.
Judge Wilkins: Talk about your obvious cliché.
Red: [ LAUGHS ] Guilty as charged. Or not – if I really am mad. How about giving us all a chance to find out?

 
[ Phone conversation ]
Lilly/Jennifer: What do you mean he’s taking a trip?
Liz: The judge granted his request for a psychiatric evaluation, so as a federal prisoner he’s being sent to the Federal Medical Center in Springfield, Missouri.
Lilly: Does Reddington really believe anyone’s gonna think that he’s incompetent?
⋘⋙
[ Liz visits Red In jail ]
Red: I didn’t request the evaluation – so I’d be evaluated.
[ BUZZER, DOOR CLANKS ]
Red: I did it because I no longer have an Immunity Agreement, and I need leverage to get a new one.
Liz: How does a psych eval get you that?
Red: Because it gets me to Missouri. There’s a man I need to see there.
⋘⋙
Lilly: A man? What man?
Liz: I don’t know, and I don’t care. All I care about is that he didn’t give me a case, so we can work on ours.
Lilly: Ours is at a dead end.
Liz: What are you talking about? We’ve ID’d the man who was Koehler’s patient right after Reddington was. He might know his real identity.
Lilly: Yeah, and if could find him, maybe he’d tell us, but we can’t.
Liz: We’re stuck, but if I could get the Task Force to help us–
Lilly: [ SCOFFS ] I thought we couldn’t go to the FBI. If we did, Reddington would find out.
Liz: We can’t give them a case, but Reddington can.
Lilly: I thought he didn’t have one.
Liz: They don’t know that.

 
[ The Post Office ]
Liz: Gerald Todd Klepper was a doctor in Newark who murdered 17 patients.
Aram: Terminally ill patients. Cops think it was euthanasia.
Liz: They think, but they don’t know. By the time the police realized Klepper was responsible, he was gone. And in the 28 years since, no one’s found him because, according to Reddington, he had his appearance altered by everyone’s favorite plastic surgeon to the criminal elite – Dr. Hans Koehler.
Ressler: I’m sorry. So, Reddington wants us to track down one of Dr. Koehler’s patients?
Cooper: Thanks to him, we already acquired a list with their names on it. The Bureau has assigned a team to track them down.
Liz: He says Klepper is a very special case. And, no, he didn’t say why.
Samar: And we can’t ask him because he hoodwinked his judge into sending him to Missouri for a psych eval.
Cooper: What do we know about this “Angel of Death”?
⋘⋙
[ Digby Tamerlane KNOCKS AT DOOR of Gerald Klepper’s RV ]
⋘⋙
Liz: Let’s start with what we don’t know – like his current ID, what he looks like, and where he lives.
⋘⋙
[ The door of Klepper’s RV opens ]
Tamerlane: You said you could be of assistance.
⋘⋙
Liz: What we do know is that, according to Koehler’s medical file, prior to his operation, Klepper was on dialysis.
Cooper: Our only lead is a 28-year-old medical condition?
Liz: That’s the only lead the police have. But the victims’ families hired a P.I. to follow up, and what he found, we don’t know.
Cooper: And you need to talk to him. We know who Klepper was – maybe this guy can tell us who he is.

 
[ Private Investigator’s office ] [ The P.I. lays out photos of the victims on a table ]
Private Investigator: Cindy Kobata was fighting leukemia. Jim Franklin had a wife and two kids. Bethany Ray had cystic fibrosis. She’d just turned 21 when Klepper killed her.
Ressler: How long’ve you been working this case?
Private Investigator: The families came to me in ’94. I wish I could’a been more help, but Klepper stayed off the grid – no citizenship, no taxes, no footprint, nothing.
Liz: Is there anything you can tell us about him now?
Private Investigator: I can tell you the cops had it all wrong. They said he was all about putting people out of their misery, but these people were demanding aggressive treatment. They weren’t targeted because they wanted to die – they were targeted because they wanted to live.
Ressler: Now, why would he do that?
Private Investigator: Because by fighting to stay alive, they used up resources that he thought were better used on healthier patients.
Ressler: You make him sound like an actuary.
Private Investigator: Hmm. Most people think life is priceless. Not Klepper. He did a cost-benefit analysis on these people, figured that the cost outweighed the benefits, and killed them because of it.

 
[ Inside Gerald Klepper’s RV ]
Klepper: You killed someone. For that, most people would believe you belong in prison. Their belief is based on a Judeo-Christian tradition of justice. Mine is more algebraic. There’s a constant and a variable. The constant is the work you do. It has value, and it will be compromised with you behind bars. The variable is what economists call the VSL – the value of statistical life. In this case, the value of your life versus the value of the life of the witness whose testimony will put you behind bars.
Digby Tamerlane: Okay, I can make it worth their while not to say anything.
Klepper: The authorities have identified her. She was walking home that night and saw what she saw. She’s made a preliminary statement. At this point, a bribe has a low probability of success. I’m afraid my equation is premised on a more permanent solution.
Tamerlane: Killing her.
Klepper: If her VSL is lower than yours.
Tamerlane: You can’t put a price on a life.
Klepper: Nearly every department in our government has a VSL. The EPA’s is $10 million. The FDA’s is $7.9 million. The Department of Transportation is $6.4 million. The annoying beep that goes off when the people in the front seat don’t put their seatbelts on? Ever wonder why there was no beep for the people sitting in the back? It would cost the auto industry $325 million a year and save 44 lives. 325 divided by 44 is 7.4 meaning that the value of each life that would be saved is $7.4 million. But since DOT values each life at only $6.4 million, no beeps in the back.
Tamerlane: Those are statistical models to determine the cost of a life, not to decide the value of one life over another.
Klepper: Organ recipient protocols. What a teacher makes versus a hedge fund manager. We make comparative values all the time, and I’ve done it for you and Miss Carter. A bus driver versus a titan of industry. A volunteer at a local boys’ club versus a man who employs 12,000 people. I’ve circled the relevant numbers.
[ EXHALES SHARPLY ] [ PENCIL TAPS ]
Tamerlane: Well, according to this, she comes out ahead.
Klepper: Smaller carbon footprint. Works with at-risk youth. You give people paychecks. She gives them hope.
Tamerlane: [ EXHALES DEEPLY ] I’m not a murderer.
Klepper: That’s why you need me.
Tamerlane: [ EXHALES SLOWLY ] How do I tip your scales?
Klepper: You’re building a plant in Malaysia. I want it built in Detroit. My coefficient for America First is very high.
Tamerlane: No, that’s impossible. I’ve already put $100 million into that plant.
Klepper: I never said killing hope would be cheap, just ethical.
Tamerlane: How can murder ever be ethical?
Klepper: How can 44 people die each year because they weren’t warned to put on their seatbelts? Some lives have more value than others. Move the plant, your life will have more value than the woman set to testify against you. It’s nothing personal. It’s just math.

 
[ The Post Office ]
Aram: So, I’ve been thinking about The Angel of Death and trying to figure out why a digital nomad who never stops moving would stop in one place for nearly three months. The answer? His kidney.
Cooper:You think this has to do with his dialysis treatments?
Aram: Not the treatments, the cure.
Samar: A transplant.
Aram: I pulled the rolls of every kidney transplant recipient in Philadelphia in 2010. And after removing the patients [ KEYS CLACKING ] that were the wrong age, sex, or race, I was able to narrow it down to a list of 14 men, one of which is this guy.
Samar: Cameron Morella.
⋘⋙
[ Klepper KNOCKS AT DOOR of a hotel room ]
⋘⋙
Aram: He’s he right age, and before 2010, – he was non-existent.
Samar: Because he was someone else.
[ KEYS CLACKING, COMPUTER BEEPS ]
Cooper: Gerald Todd Klepper.
Aram: I’m telling you I think this is our guy.
⋘⋙
[ The hotel room door opens ]
Klepper: Miss Carter? Eric Price. I’m here on behalf of the District Attorney to review your testimony. May I have a minute?
⋘⋙
Cooper: So he has a new face but still needs a kidney.
Samar: Did you run him through the database – license, credit cards?
Aram: I did, and it appears he’s in D.C. His last purchase was for a hotel room – near 4th and E Street. [ KEYS CLACKING ] And that – that was under an hour ago.
Cooper: Notify Ressler and Keen. Have them pay Mr. Morella a visit.

 
[ Inside her hotel room ]
Kelly Carter: I thought the lady at the DA’s Office said that I wouldn’t be giving a statement until later today.
Klepper: Yes. About that – The truth is, I don’t work for the DA’s Office. I’m here on behalf of Mr.
Tamerlane.
Kelly Carter: What? You lied to me?!
Klepper: Miss Carter, please. Calm down. [ SIGHS ]
Kelly Carter: And you’re here to what you’re here to what try and buy me off? Is that what this is? He thinks he can just pay me off and make me lie about what I saw him do to that poor girl?!
Klepper: It’s not quite that simple.
[ LATCHES of briefcase CLICK ]
Kelly Carter: Who are you? What are you doing? Help! Help! Ohh! Help me! Let go of me! No!
[ Klepper forces Kelly Carter into the bathroom, then cracks ⚡️ her head against the sink ]
[ THUDS ] [ GROANING ] [ Blood spreads from Kelly’s head across the ceramic tile floor. She is paralyzed but still conscious ]
Klepper: According to the CDC, accidents are the leading cause of death among women 25 to 34. [ INHALES DEEPLY ] It only accounts for 18% of deaths among black women.
[ Klepper turns on the shower ] [ HANDLE CREAKS, WATER RUNNING ]
Klepper: But at 36.9%, it’s number one with a bullet among white women like yourself [ EXHALES SHARPLY ] Tragic slip and fall coming out of the shower, and, sadly, you’ll be just one more statistic in the CDC’s annual report on health equity.
[ Klepper begins unbuttoning Kelly’s blouse ]
Klepper: As Mark Twain said, there’s three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

 
[ At the Federal Medical Center in Springfield, Missouri, Red’s psych evaluation begins ]
Dr Grey: So, we are here to evaluate whether you’re competent to stand trial.
Red: This is a comfy chair.
Dr Grey: Do you understand what that means?
Red: It’s comfy?
Dr Grey: Competency means you are capable of understanding the characteristic and consequences of the proceedings against you. Based on what I’ve read in the trial transcript, – you seem quite capable.
Red: And yet I don’t [ INHALES DEEPLY ] understand why I’m there in court. I don’t know what I’ve done wrong.
Dr Grey: You don’t?
Red: Not really, no.
Dr Grey: Have you killed people?
Red: Polluting rivers kills people, good people killed – for profit. Raising the speed limit kills people – to save time. The death penalty. Unjust wars have killed so many people. Whatever I’ve done, I’ve done because I thought it was just. So, do I really understand the proceedings against me? No, I don’t.
Dr Grey: I’m going to administer a series of diagnostics tests.
Red: If they’re designed to see whether I can distinguish between the behavior the system defines as criminal and that which I deem appropriate – I can’t.
Dr Grey: Let’s start with the Rorschach test.
Red: Ah. Inkblots. I must warn you, they all look like genitalia to me.
[ Dr Grey shows Red an inkblot ]
Red: [ LAUGHS ] There you go.

 
[ POLICE RADIO CHATTER ]
– Copy. Walking them in now.
Liz: Agents Ressler and Keen, FBI. What’s going on here?
Officer: Got a call about 20 minutes ago. Housekeeping found a DOA female in the room. Looks like a slip and fall.
[ Kelly Carter is dead on the floor. The blood from her head is diluted with water from the shower ]
Liz: That’s no slip and fall.
[ Ressler shows the Officer a photo of Klepper/Morella ]
Ressler:This guy Cameron Morella, he’s our suspect. He’s on the move. Lock it down. Search the building.

 
[ DOOR CREAKING, THUDS SHUT ]
[ Red enters the general patient area at the Federal Medical Center. Some patients play board games; others just sit staring. There is a large aviary with brightly feathered birds inside ] [ BIRDS CHIRPING ]
[ Red makes his way to one patient in particular. The patient stares at the aviary. Red sits down next to him ]
Red: Hello, Atticus. It’s been a while. I was sorry to hear about all the tomfoolery in Cincinnati, but I’m confident it’ll all blow over and you’ll be acquitted soon. I came here because I need a favor.
[ CHIRPING CONTINUES ] [ Atticus does not respond ]
Red: It’s about our mutual acquaintance. I need to find him. I’m in trouble, and I need to find him. If anyone can help me, it’s you. This is important, Atticus.
[ CHIRPING CONTINUES ] [ Atticus does not respond ]
Red: It’s a matter of life and death.
[ Atticus still does not respond ]
[ A Nurse wheels a medication cart over ]
Nurse: You can talk at him all day, but he ain’t gonna say much.
Red: I’m sorry?
Nurse: Mr. Rodrick. They got him on a cocktail of antipsychotics and mood stabilizers that have most men counting worms. It’s for the best, though. He’s a bear if he doesn’t get his meds every three hours – yeah, just like the Incredible Hulk.
[ Atticus takes the small paper cup of pills ]

Red: Knock yourself out.
[ CHIRPING CONTINUES ] [ The Nurse has stopped with her med cart next to Atticus Rodrick ]
[ Red points at a bird in the aviary ]
Red: Jiminy Christmas!
Nurse: What?
Red: For the love of– Please tell me that’s not a Vermilion Flycatcher.
Nurse: What are you talking about?
Red: That little fella right there. What the hell are you people doing with a Flycatcher in your aviary? They’re endangered. That little guy should be in an open habitat or desert scrub, at the very least.
[ The Nurse looks in the aviary. As she does, Red swaps out Atticus’s meds for some Skittles ]
Nurse: Look, I don’t know nothing about birds and desert scrub and all that.
Red: You know what? Never mind. I am absolutely dead wrong. That is a Red Factor Canary. Probably domestically bred. He’s perfectly fine.
Nurse: Good to know.
[ Red sits next to Atticus ]
[ BIRDS CHIRPING ]
Red: One thing at a time, Atticus. I’ll get you sober, and then you can tell me how to find your friend.
[ INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS ] [ CHIRPING CONTINUES ]

 
[ Liz talks by phone with Samar and Cooper at the Post Office ]
Samar: We’re not seeing any images of Klepper on hotel security or area CCTV. His credit cards are dark, his cellphone–
Liz: MPD’s swept the building. He’s gone.
Cooper: What about his hotel room?
Liz: He never entered it. We think he only purchased it to get access to the victim’s floor.
[ Ressler walks over to Liz ]
Ressler: I just had an interesting chat with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.
Liz: What do they have to do with this?
Ressler: They’re paying the bill for the dead woman’s room. Turns out she’s the key witness in a case against Digby Tamerlane.
⋘⋙
[ Over phone ]
Aram: The Chione founder? That guy is like a gazillionaire.
Ressler: Yeah, well, he’s also being investigated by a grand jury for the hit-and-run death of a 12-year-old. Now, without her testimony–
Liz: Their case doesn’t exist.
Aram: I’m sorry, I think I’m confused. What is a-a-a deceased witness in a hit-and-run case have to do with The Angel of Death killer?
Liz: The P.I. said he decided who to kill based on some cost-benefit analysis.
Ressler: Or maybe he thinks that the, uh, benefits of a gazillionaire’s freedom are worth more than a witness’s life.
Cooper: Tamerlane clearly benefits from this supposed “accident.” Press him. Let’s find out what else he’s hiding.

 
[ BIRDS CHIRPING ] [ Red sits next to Atticus ]
Red: Everyone’s favorite superpower is flying like a bird. [ CRUNCHING candy ] I’d prefer mind control. Although, at this point, maybe just X-ray vision.
[ CHIRPING CONTINUES ]
Atticus: [ SLOWLY ] Reddington?
Red: Hello, Atticus. Welcome back.
Atticus: What are you doing here?

 
Dr Grey: Please answer yes or no.
Red: Why?
Dr Grey: As I’ve already explained, your answers will help me evaluate your competency to stand trial.
Red: Whether I’m easily awakened by noise?
Dr Grey: The MMPI-2 is an effective diagnostic tool, as is my assessment of your willingness to cooperate.
Red: [ SIGHS ] When I sleep, I sleep.
Dr Grey: “I wish I could be as happy as others seem to be.”
Red: Yes.
Dr Grey: “My father was a good man.”
Red: Good? No.
Dr Grey: “If people weren’t out to get me, I would have been more successful.”
Red: Not necessarily.
Dr Grey: “I don’t always tell the truth.”
⋘⋙
Red: [ To Atticus ] I need to find your colleague.
⋘⋙
Dr Grey: “I am an important person.”
⋘⋙
Red: It’s important that I find him.
[ CHIRPING CONTINUES ]
Atticus: [ Still groggy ] I’d like to fly.
⋘⋙
Dr Grey: “I get angry sometimes.” Yes or no. “I get angry sometimes.”
Red: No. I get even. [ Pause ] Is that a look of concern or keen interest?
Dr Grey: You show no signs of depression, paranoia, or social introversion. No hypochondriasis, no hypomania.
Red: Keen interest, then.
Dr Grey: On the other hand, you clearly have a psychopathic deviate conflict as in regards to society’s rules.
Red: Is that it? After all your inkblots and questions about my digestive tract, that’s the depth of your analysis, that I deviate from societal norms? Given that my life depends on your learned evaluation, I hope you have something slightly more insightful on that notepad.
Dr Grey: [ PEN TAPS LIGHTLY ] You’re masquerading. Leading a double life, pretending to be someone you’re not. If you’re divorced from social norms, it’s because you’re divorced from a side of yourself I can’t see because you’re terrified of letting people see it. Why, I don’t know. But whatever pathologies you have I think they can be traced to the fact that, while most people see you as a, uh, iconic bad guy, you’re really just an imposter.

 
[ An interrogation room. Liz questions Digby Tamerlane. Ressler watches from outside ]
Liz: You expect me to believe you?
Tamerlane: [ LAUGHS ] I told you three times, I’ve never seen the man before in my life.
Liz: Then it should come as a surprise that he’s a suspect in the murder of Kelly Carter.
[ CELLPHONE CLATTERS ]
Tamerlane: I don’t know that name.
Liz: Oh, sure you do. She’s the woman who saw you in Rock Creek Park trying to bury that 12-year-old you ran over.
Tamerlane: Okay, I want my attorney–
Liz: That’s why she was in D.C., to give her statement to the grand jury.
Tamerlane: Okay, listen, lady, my lawyers are–
Liz: Your lawyers have no idea that Cameron Morella is a serial killer, the one the press dubbed “Angel of Death,” or that his real name is Gerald Todd Klepper and that he’s responsible for the murders of Cindy Kobata, Jim Franklin, Bethany Ray, or that he’s wanted for taking 17 innocent lives, or even if he’s still alive, but I do. I also know that the two of you are in business together. And when I tie you to Klepper, you’re not only looking at a conspiracy to commit murder, but I’m gonna do everything in my power to drag you down with him.
Tamerlane: [ Pause ] He approached me backstage after our Malaysian launch. He told me about the witnesses – Miss Carter – said he could make it go away.
Liz: How did you communicate?
Tamerlane: I had to go to him at his place a campground near Groveton.
Liz: Is that the only way?
Tamerlane: No. He gave me a phone number.

 
[ DOOR OPENS ] [ INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS ]
Liz: [ EXHALES SHARPLY ] We have a lead. Tamerlane coughed up Klepper’s number.
[ Liz gives Ressler a slip of paper ]
Ressler: I heard. I’ll get local PD en route to that RV park now.
Liz: Have Aram run a trace on that number. We find Klepper’s phone, we find Klepper.
Ressler: And maybe we’ll find out why Reddington gave us this case.
Liz: Maybe it’s because, for once, he’s a bad guy.
Ressler: You honestly believe that?
Liz: Tell me what Aram finds out.

 
[ CELLPHONE BEEPS, LINE RINGS ]
Liz: You need to call your friend Buck.
Lilly: Why? What did you find out?
Liz: [ EXHALES SHARPLY ] I’ve got a number I need him to trace. Ready?
Lilly: Yeah.
Liz: (202) 555-0170. Gerald Klepper’s new identity is Cameron Morella. That’s his number. Call me as soon as Buck traces it.
Lilly: Wait, why do we need Buck? I-I thought we were working with the FBI. Can’t they just run the trace?
Liz: They are, but we need to get to Klepper before they do, – so I gave them the wrong number.
Lilly What?! I w– They’re gonna find out. What happens when they do.
Liz: I’ll deal with that later. For now, we just need to get to Klepper and see if he can tell us who Reddington really is.

 
[ The Federal Medical Center ]
Red: Atticus. Atticus, look at me –
Atticus: What’s going on?
Red: You’re in a hospital awaiting trial. They have you on a strong cocktail of antipsychotics.
Atticus: Springfield?
Red: Yes, you’re in Springfield.
Atticus: That doctor –
Red: Y– Lis– Listen to me. It’s very important that I locate your colleague.
Atticus: He’s gone.
Red: No, yes. I know he’s gone. I need to find him.
Atticus: [ WHISPERING ] That damn doctor.
Red: F– Atticus, forget the doctor. Can you help me find him?
Atticus: Y–
[ Dr Grey appears ]
Dr Grey: Mr. Reddington, what are you doing? We have a session. We have much to cover, and you’re late.
Red: I am so sorry, Doctor. I abhor tardiness, but if you could just give me one moment.
Atticus: [ Whispering angrily ] That bitch. I- I told her I didn’t want those little red pills. I told her no.
Red: Calm down.
Atticus: I’m gonna kill that lady.
Red: That’s enough, really.
Atticus: I’m gonna rip that tongue right out of her mouth.
Red: Atticus, calm down.
Atticus: And once I rip that tongue out–
Red: Atticus–
Atticus: [ Yelling ] –I’m gonna shove it down her damn throat!
[ Atticus leaps up and lunges at Dr Grey ]
– Security! Security! Security!
[ Red grabs Atticus’s shoulders and tries to pull him back off Dr Grey ]
[ GRUNTS ] [ STRAINING ]
Red: No! No!
[ GRUNTING ]
Atticus: [ YELLS ] I’m gonna rip your tongue out! I’m gonna rip your tongue out! [ YELLING ]
[ Red tries to hold Atticus back until Medical Center staff manage to pull Atticus off Dr Grey and restrain him on the floor ]

 
[ Lilly calls Liz at work ]
Lilly: Buck is a god.
Liz: He traced the phone?
Lilly: He bounced the signal off of Venus or Mars – I don’t know – but he has a location. It’s a parking lot at 3rd and Sycamore.
[ Ressler enters ]
Ressler: Phone number was a dead end.
Liz: [ On phone to Lilly ] I gotta go.
Lilly: What are you gonna do? Are you- Are you gonna go there? Should I meet you?
Liz: I’ll call you back. [ CELLPHONE BEEPS ]
Ressler: Evidently, local PD couldn’t find Klepper’s RV. [ KEYS JANGLING ] Cooper wants us to get out there, see if anyone at the campground has information on where he might be.
Liz: You go.
Ressler: What – you got someplace better to be?
Liz: Yeah, I think I’m gonna try to talk to Reddington, – see if he knows anything.
Ressler: He’s in the federal psych hospital.
Liz: And this is a life-or-death situation. I think they’re gonna let me talk to him.
Ressler: Now, there’s a phone call I’d like to be on. I’ll get Navabi to go out to the RV parking lot–
Liz: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I mean, y-you’re welcome to listen in if you want, but, with Reddington, you catch more flies with honey, and you are definitely more sour than sweet.
[ KEYS JINGLING ]
Ressler: How do you do it?
Liz: What?
Ressler: Put up with him. I can’t stand how much he hides from us, and I’m not even his kid. I don’t know how you deal with it.
Liz: It’s not easy.
Ressler: You make it look like it is.
Liz: [ SCOFFS ]
[ Ressler leaves] [ CELLPHONE DIALING ]
Liz: I’ll let you know what I find out.
Ressler: I’ll do the same.
[ Lilly places a call; LINE RINGING ]

 
[ Liz arrives at the RV Park and gets out of her car ]
[ Car DOOR CLOSES ] [ BIRDS CHIRPING ]
[ Liz raps on the door of Klepper’s RV and stands to the side ]
Liz: Cameron Morella! FBI! Open the door. Mr. Morella, open the door, or a tactical team will storm your vehicle!
[ Klepper (aka Cameron Morella) opens the RV door ]
Liz: Hands where I can see them.
[ Klepper puts his hands up and peers around outside ]
Klepper: Where’s the cavalry?
Liz: In my hand. Now back up.

 
[ At the Federal Medical Center, the Nurse gives Atticus an injection ]
Red: Well, I guess there won’t be much more from him, now, will there?
Nurse: That’s the idea.
[ INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS ] [ The Nurse leaves ]
[ Red taps Atticus’s chest lightly ]
Red: Atticus. Atticus. We don’t have much time.
[ Red slaps his face lightly ]
Red: Hey. Hey. Your friend has a job. It’s an assassination. Look at me. He knows the FBI is looking for him, so it has to be done quietly.
Atticus: [ Dreamily ] I’d like to fly.
[ Red slaps Atticus’s face again ]
Red: Hey, hey. Hey. Your friend – who would he turn to to get a job done as quietly as possible? Atticus, who would he turn to?
Atticus: [ Sleepily ] General Shiro –
Red: Ge- General [ STAMMERING ] Who’s that? I-I don’t– General Shiro? Hey, where can I find him?
Atticus: Would you like to fly? Oh. I would.

 
[ Klepper sits at the table inside the RV as Liz keeps her gun trained on him ]
Liz: I know who you are, Mr. Morella. I know you murdered Kelly Carter to prevent her from telling a grand jury that she saw Digby Tamerlane trying to hide the body of a young girl he killed in a hit-and-run.
Klepper: I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Liz: I also know who you were, Dr. Klepper.
Klepper: I don’t know that name.
[ KNOCK ON DOOR ] [ DOOR CREAKS ] [ Liz lets Lilly in. She has Klepper’s file ]
Lilly: Is that him?
[ DOOR CLOSES ]
Liz: He says no. But I think this should change his mind.
[ Liz shows Klepper the file ]
Liz: Look familiar? It should. It’s a picture of you in Dr. Hans Koehler’s medical file, complete with a list of every time he chiseled you or injected you, shaved you down or puffed you up.
Klepper: I don’t recognize this person.
Liz: Well, Koehler did a remarkable job of changing your appearance. But we both know that he can’t change your DNA. And that when we do take it, it’s gonna match up to his. Isn’t it, Doctor?
Klepper: I like to make calculations.
Liz: Like deciding who should live and who should die?
Klepper: That’s one calculation, yes.
Liz: Have you made it often?
Klepper: Often enough. And it’s a surprisingly easy one. Others are considerably more difficult. Like why the FBI sent only one agent and one – I’m not sure what.
Lilly: We know who you were before Dr. Koehler changed your identity. What we want to know is who Raymond Reddington was.
Liz: According to Koehler’s records, you and Reddington were patients at approximately the same time.
Klepper: And you think, what, we bonded in post-op? Compared scars? [ CHUCKLES ] The whole point of going to Koehler was to become anonymous. I never saw him. He never saw me.
[ CELLPHONE VIBRATING ] [ CELLPHONE BEEPS ]

 
[ Liz steps out of the RV to take a call, leaving Lilly with the gun ]
Liz: Whatcha got?
Ressler: A guy at the RV park gave us a description of Klepper’s vehicle. Aram tracked it to a parking lot at 3rd and Sycamore.
Liz: How far away are you?
Ressler: About 10 minutes out.
Liz: Lemme know what you find when you get there.
Ressler: What about Reddington?
Liz: Reddington?
Ressler: Well, did you talk to him?
Liz: Oh. Yeah. He didn’t know anything.
Ressler: For once we know more than he does. All right, I’ll, uh, call you when we find something.
[ CELLPHONE BEEPS ]

 
[ Liz goes back inside the RV ]
Klepper: I have a gun. In that cupboard. On the top shelf.
[ Liz opens the cupboard ]
Liz: About Reddington If you didn’t see him, who did?
Klepper: A nurse. She saw all the patients before and after. She could tell you who Reddington was.
Liz: What’s her name?
Klepper: Your colleagues are on their way. And for some reason, you didn’t tell them you were already here.
Liz: What is her name?
Klepper: I don’t randomly decide who’s gonna live or die. I do it based on whose life has more value. Take us, for example. I’m gonna spend the rest of my life in prison. You could have a long and productive career. By any reasonable standard, your life has more value, which is why you should get my gun.
Liz: We need a name.
Klepper: And I’ll give it to you once I get you to understand that you have to kill me.
Liz: What are you talking about!?
Klepper: I don’t know why you want to know who Reddington was, but clearly you’re willing to risk a great deal to find out. Your career, all the good and productive things you’ll do that makes your life more valuable than mine, but it only has that value if your colleagues never find out you were here. And the only way that’s gonna happen is if I’m dead when they arrive. Like I said, it’s a surprisingly easy calculation.
Lilly: We’re not gonna kill you.
Klepper: Of course not.
Liz: [ Pause ] You’re gonna kill yourself. That’s what you do – You stage killings and make them look like accidents.
Klepper: Or suicides. My gun. You don’t have much time. Either I die here or I spend my life behind bars. In some ways, it’s a mercy killing.
Lilly: [ To Liz ] You’re not actually considering –
Liz: Wait in the car.
Lilly: You can’t do this.
Klepper: The gun for the name. If she wants the name, she has no choice.
Liz: Go.
Lilly: This isn’t right.
[ Lilly leaves. Liz picks up Klepper’s gun using a towel and places it on the table in front of him ]
Klepper: Marguerite Renard. Find her, you’ll find out who Reddington was. It’s the ethical thing to do.
[ Liz leaves the RV ] [ DOOR CREAKS ] [ DOOR THUDS SHUT ]
[ BREATHING HEAVILY, Liz gets into the car with Lilly ] [ SIREN WAILING IN DISTANCE ] We should go. [ ENGINE STARTS ]

[ Liz goes up to Ressler at the Post Office ]
Liz: I heard about Klepper. He must’ve heard you were coming and decided killing himself was better than a life in prison. [ SIGHS ] Is that how you figure it?
Ressler: Not exactly, no. I, uh found Klepper’s burner – in the RV.

♪ With a red bird on the branch

Ressler: That’s the number forensics pulled off it. And this is the number that you gave me. So, the way I “figure it,” is that you gave us a fake number so that we’d run in circles while you ran a trace on the real one so that you could get to Klepper first. See, first-thought theater was that you were doing it for Reddington. I mean, he’s not around, so you’re carrying his water for him.

♪ Now your world’s coming undone

Ressler: But then I checked. Since he’s been in Missouri, he hasn’t been allowed–

♪ Now your world’s coming undone

Ressler: –any calls in or out.
Liz: I can explain.
Ressler: He doesn’t know anything about this case, does he? This is your Blacklister, not his.
Liz: [ QUIETLY ] It’s a good explanation. I can’t tell you now, but I’ll tell you some day. For now, I just need you to trust me.
Ressler: Did you kill Klepper?
Liz: [ Insistently ] No. [ Pause ] But I did– let him kill himself.
Ressler: Why?
Liz: Because he convinced me the benefit outweighed the cost. The same way I’m trying to convince you not to tell Cooper what I’ve done.
Ressler: [ SCOFFS ] Because the benefit outweighs the cost.
Liz: [ SIGHS ] [ VOICE BREAKING ] I think so. That’s a decision you’re gonna have to make for yourself.

Ressler: Sir? Autopsy’s in on Klepper. All indications are it was a suicide.
Cooper: We found evidence in Klepper’s RV that’d he’d made these sort of “ethical decisions” before. He killed 14 others. That we know of.
Ressler: [ SIGHS LIGHTLY ]
Cooper: You seem disappointed.
Ressler: Doesn’t it bother you that’s there’s always an ulterior motive? Some reason we were given a case that’s never fully explained?
Cooper: Not really, no. The way I look at it is, because of us, a serial killer is dead. No one will ever suffer because of him again. As far as I’m concerned, the case is closed. Unless there’s something I’m missing. Is there?
Ressler: No, sir. It’s case closed.

 
[ Liz talks to Lilly on the phone ]
Liz: Marguerite Renard. The nurse. We’ve got to find her.
Lilly: Before he found you, could you have done it – what you did in the RV?
Liz: She can’t be hard to locate. And when we find her, we find out who Reddington really is.
Lilly: Could you have done it?
Liz: I don’t think so. No.
Lilly: So he did this to you.
Liz: What difference does it make? We’re so close!
Lilly: The difference that it makes is that I’m worried that he’s gonna do it to me.
Liz: That won’t happen. It won’t.
[ Lilly picks up a pen to write ]
Lilly: Okay. Marguerite Renard. What do we know about her?

 
[ The Federal Medical Center, Dr Grey’s Office ]
Dr Grey: Your friend, Mr. Rodrick. He’s why you’re here?
Red: Please tell me you’re going to be administering the Szondi test. I’m absolutely fascinated by repressed impulses.
Dr Grey: There will be no more tests, Mr. Reddington. Our work is finished here.
Red: That seems premature.
Dr Grey: I saw all I needed to see today with your friend, Mr. Rodrick.
Red: You keep calling him my friend. He’s not my friend.
Dr Grey: Well, whoever he is, he was intent on killing me. I think he said he was going to, uh, “rip my tongue out.” But your reaction was everything.
Red: My reaction?
Dr Grey: You came to my defense. You saw that Mr. Rodrick was intent on causing me harm, and although you don’t know me, you made the very conscious decision to stop him, which, to my mind, is a – is a wonderful demonstration of your ability to distinguish between right and wrong.
Red: I’m not so sure of that.
Dr Grey: Yeah, but you’re not the doctor. Before I submit my decision, I have one more question.
Red: I’m an open book.
Dr Grey: What exactly is it you want from Mr. Rodrick?

 
[ The courtroom in the SDNY ]
Judge Roberta Wilkins: I have reviewed the results of the psychiatric evaluation conducted at the defendant’s request, and it is Dr. Grey’s professional opinion that, while one with a criminal history like Mr. Reddington would likely have to be insane, it’s clear his criminal proclivities do not rise to the level of legal insanity. It is the doctor’s professional opinion that the defendant does understand the charges leveled against him and is, therefore, fully mentally competent to assist in his own defense. Mr. Reddington, you’ve been provided with a copy of Dr. Grey’s findings.
[ Red waves his copy ]
Judge Wilkins: Are you objecting to her conclusions?
Red: No, Your Honor. I’m prepared to accept the finding of competency.
Judge Wilkins: Wonderful. Then we’re clear to proceed. Mr. Sima?
Asst US Atty Sima: Your Honor, of the indictments that are before the court, the prosecution has elected to proceed with the charge of treason as our first case against the defendant.
Judge Wilkins: Very well. We’ll move to jury selection immediately.

♫ Everything’s Just So Fine
By Dominic Halpin

♪ When I feel the rain coming down on me
I just brush my coat and everything’s just fine,
Big holes in my pocket where some coins they should be
Hey, I’m not rich but everything’s just fine,

♪ Sometimes I talk with Mr. Blue, I don’t want him to stay,
I just show him my grin and don’t let him in,
he soon goes
on his way

♪ Tomorrow I may wake to find,
a friend who’s true and a friend who’s kind,
But I’m so happy everything’s just fine

♪ Sometimes I talk with Mr. Blue, I don’t want him to stay,
I just show him my grin and don’t let him in,
he soon goes
on his way

♪ Tomorrow I may wake to find,
a friend who’s true and a friend who’s kind,
But that won’t keep me from my sleep.you’ll never catch
me counting sheep because of baby
everything’s just fine

♪ I know I’m fine ’cause I’m breathing
