🔴 Script 8:2 Katarina Rostova Pt 2 (№ 3)


Brief (Where we’re at):

Katarina and Liz have abducted Dom (Dominic Wilkinson, Katarina’s father and Liz’s grandfather) from Red, who was having Dom cared for. Dom had been in a coma for months after having been shot in the chest in a shootout between Red’s crew and Katarina’s, and had just regained consciousness. Katarina put into play a scheme to fool Red, Liz and the FBI into believing that a notorious extraction artist known as “Roanoke” was still active and was planning to raid Red’s “warehospital” where Dom was being taken care of. Liz caught on to the scheme and confronted her mother. Katarina told Liz she needed to question Dom to save her own life.

Katarina said her father had been a “domineering spymaster” for the KGB who had used her, starting at the age of 15, to extract secrets from American soldiers by having her sleep with them. Later, in 1990, when the Soviet Union was disintegrating, an unidentified operative dubbed N-13, had stolen 13 secret intel files and was suspected of adding to it ever since. Dom had told the KGB that Katarina was N-13 and had attempted to murder her to end the search. But she had survived and gone into hiding. Katarina insists to Liz she is not N-13, but she thinks Red may be, or Dom, or both. Liz agrees to help Katarina abduct Dom, by driving the van which will take him to the new safe house Red has located. She arranges to have “flat-free tires” to be put on the transport van, which she insists on driving herself. This allows her to drive the van through a tire-spike hazard which stops the FBI escort vehicles and Red’s Mercedes.

Cooper initiates a manhunt for Liz, though the task force has mixed feelings. Liz reaches out to Ressler and they meet alone in a parking garage. Liz tries to explain why she and Katarina need to talk to Dom. Ressler seems to have heard of “N-13” before. He wants Liz to turn herself in, that he will back her “no matter what comes.” She softens and kisses him. It’s a serious kiss but he cuts it off, “I have to do my job, Keen.” “I know you do,” she says, taking the gun from inside his jacket and backing away with the gun pointed at him to make her escape.

Red is devastated to have lost Liz to Katarina. Dembe reminds him this was a possibility they had talked about. “Yeah, I knew it,” says Red, “And I let it happen anyway.”

༺✦ ♤ ✦༻

[ Liz has taken Dom to Katarina’s safe house ]
[ Liz sits in a chair next to Dom’s hospital bed ] [ Monitor beeping ]
[ Dom wakes up ]
Dom: [ Groggily ] Masha.
Liz: [ Sharply ] Don’t call me that.
Dom: Your mother.
Liz: You tried to murder my mother. And you lied to me about Reddington, convinced me he was Ilya Koslov.
Dom: That woman. You abducted me for her.
Liz: My mother’s been–
[ Katarina and Dr Ed Clemons, who was abducted along with Dom, are in an adjacent room monitoring the conversation and Dom’s vital signs ]
Katarina: How hard can I push him?
Dr Clemons: You won’t get away with this.
Katarina: I asked you–

[ Heard over monitor ]
Liz: And the people looking for her–

Katarina: –how hard?
Liz: –to hurt me or Agnes if it would help them get what they want. And I didn’t abduct you for her. I abducted you for answers – To make it stop. Help me understand. For the first time, stop protecting Reddington, and God knows who else, and make the decision to protect your own family. Three generations of women fighting to survive.

[ At Eduardo Martinez’s body shop, Red sits in a chair. Eduardo lifts tire iron over Red but looks nervous and lowers it ]
Eduardo: [ Pleading ] Mr. Reddington, please.
Red: Take a swing, Eduardo. Go ahead. This is what you wanted. Take your best shot. Because I assure you, if you don’t, I will.
[ Red points his pistol at Eduardo ]
Eduardo: Mr. Reddington, please, I would never betray you.
Red: Come on. Nice big swing.
Eduardo: I told you – I swear – I didn’t know your people were the target.
Red: If you’re not gonna hit me, you could at least say something hurtful. I mean, how am I supposed to deal with this? You’re so plaintive, I feel like I should apologize for your betrayal. You know what?–
Eduardo: I–
Red: –Just help me track the van. Give me a VIN number, license plate, whatever you’ve got.
Eduardo: You know what I’ve got – Nothing. My clients don’t want me to be able to track them. But for you, if I had any idea your people were in danger, I would’ve put a trace on the vehicle. But I didn’t. Because I didn’t know.
[ Dog barking ] [ Red decides Eduardo is telling the truth and stands up ]
Red: You’re a good man, Eduardo. And I’m glad you didn’t clock me with the tire iron. I was thinking, “Boy, that’s really gonna hurt.”
[ Door opens and closes; Dembe enters ]
Red: Anything?
Dembe: Not yet. They must have a safe house nearby. We don’t think they were on the road for long.
Red: That’s it? With all the sources we pay for information?
Dembe: Everyone’s looking. But wherever they are, they know better than to show themselves.
Red: Dembe, Dom’s too old. He’ll try not to break, but if they push him, he’ll die trying.
[ Red returns his attention to Eduardo ]
Red: I’m terribly sorry about the theatrics, Eduardo. I should have known better. I do hope I haven’t made you too uncomfortable.
[ Red stuffs some bills into Eduardo’s hand ]
Red: Take Kate to Argonne. Have dinner, a few laughs. I hear Chef Gilbert does a ris de veau that’ll make your toes curl.
[ Red turns to leave ]
Dembe: Raymond, where are we going?
Red: We need a lead. If we don’t have one, we need to talk to people who might.

[ The Post Office ]
Cooper: Tell me. Where are we?
Aram: So far, we’re working two possibilities. Uh, first is this man. [ Keys clacking ] A roadside surveillance camera picked him up just before the spike strip deployed.
Agent Park: We believe he placed the spike strip at Keen’s instruction.
Cooper: Can we enhance the resolution?
Aram: You’re already looking at it. The plate’s a fake.
Cooper: So how are we gonna find her?
Ressler: We can circulate this image to local merchants, Metro PD, see what shakes loose, but problem is, how do we do that without exposing Keen to a kidnapping charge?
Cooper: My question exactly. Please, tell me we had better luck with the van.
Agent Park: Not much. Surveillance feed shows it continued north for another six-tenths of a mile. At that point, it turned off the main road and took smaller surface streets.
Ressler: To avoid any cameras. Keen knows what she’s doing.
[ Elevator doors sliding ] [ Red and Dembe step out ]
Ressler: What do you want?
Cooper: Our help. He wouldn’t be here unless he needed something.
Red: Good to see you all, as well. Like it or not, I believe we’re all pulling on the same oar. Harold, perhaps we could go find a comfortable chair somewhere.

[ Dom’s room at the safe house ] [ Monitor beeping ]
[ Dom’s eyes look around the room for cameras ]
Liz: What are you looking at? You want to know if she’s here.
Dom: I know. Tell her to come out where I can see her.
Liz: She’s not hiding. I asked her to let us talk alone. I know you’re not gonna tell her the truth. I know a lot more than the last time we talked. I know about the Sikorsky Archive. That’s right. And N-13.
Dom: Careful, Masha. Say “N-13” around the wrong person at the wrong time, and you won’t live to regret it.
Liz: I told you not to call me that. And I’m not the one in danger here. N-13 has the Archive, doesn’t he? Assuming it is a “he.”
Dom: Now, you listen to me–
Liz: It’s Reddington, isn’t it? He framed my mother.
Dom: You have no idea what you’re talking about.
Liz: If he doesn’t have it, you know who does. You’re protecting someone. Who could be so important that you would sacrifice your daughter?
Dom: [ Angrily ] My daughter. Some daughter.
Liz: Don’t lie to me. I swear, it’ll be better if you just said nothing than–
Dom: That’s enough! [ Monitor beeping rapidly ] You think I want this? To live with this, to die for this? To keep these secrets?
Liz: Then stop keeping them.
Dom: I can’t. You don’t understand. Whatever secrets I know, they’re not mine to tell.
You don’t have to believe me, but if I die, I’ll know I did my best to protect you and Agnes.
Liz: If you want to protect us, stop keeping secrets that put us in danger and start telling us the truth!
[ Dr Clemons comes in ]
Dr Clemons: He needs to be sedated.
Liz: We’re not finished.
Dr Clemons: You are for now.
[ Beeping rapidly ]

[ Cooper’s office ]
Cooper: You want information. So you can get to Agent Keen before we do.
Red: If history is any indication, Harold, you may never get to Agent Keen without me.
Ressler: We’ll take our chances.
Red: Really? With an old man’s life at stake? A sick old man in need of medical care? If he dies–
Cooper: If he dies, it’ll be no less your fault than hers. Imagine risking everything – Her career, a life with her child, her freedom – All to get answers you already have.
Red: Oh, come on, Harold. We’ve been over this. She’s gone way too far. Felony abduction. Very possibly torture. Hell, she could kill the old son of a bitch.
Ressler: She wouldn’t.
Red: What do you imagine she’s doing, Donald? Saying, “Pretty please” “Mother, may I”?
Ressler: I’ll tell you what she’s not doing – Behaving like you would.
Red: Boy, she played you. She took advantage of your rather significant blind spot in matters of [ nods at Ressler’s crotch ] the heart.
Ressler: What does that mean?
Red: I mean that if this were the high-school prom, she’d be the pretty loner standing on the sidelines and you’d be the second-string quarterback guzzling down the punch, hoping to cop a feel off her during “Stairway to Heaven.”
Ressler: I’ve had enough of you!
[ Ressler lunges at Red. Dembe steps in to push him back, slipping his fingers under Ressler’s lapel and tapping ]
Cooper: Okay. That’s it. That’s enough. We’re done here. In fact, it’s possible after this we’re done, period. If and when we find Agent Keen, we’ll let you know.

[ Red and Dembe get into the elevator. The doors slide shut ]
Red: How’d it go?
Dembe: I placed it under his lapel.
[ Button clicks ] [ Beeping ] [ A tracking display on Dembe’s phone shows an orange triangle moving against the layout of the Post Office ]

[ The safe house ] [ Liz is in the room from which Katarina and Dr Clemons and been watching Dom remotely ]
Katarina: You want to release him? You can’t be serious.
Liz: Look at him. He’s unconscious.
[ A monitor displays Dom asleep on his bed ]
Katarina: He’s sedated, that’s all. When this seizure subsides, we can try again. And again and again.
Liz: He’s not gonna talk.
Katarina: Oh, he will. Not willingly. But he’s too old to withstand a more aggressive approach.
Liz: No.
Katarina: You understood what we were doing here. We agreed not to stop–
Liz: Until what?
Katarina: Don’t give me that look. I’ve been crystal clear about how far I’ve been willing to go. You said you were in agreement.
Liz: I know what I said, but I can’t, not if it means torturing an 80-year-old man. Whatever he’s done, he’s still your father. And my grandfather.
Katarina: So what now? We can’t just take him back where he came from.
Liz: Maybe we can. Let me make a call.
[ Katarina turns and walks away ]
Liz: Katarina. Mother!
[ Katarina stops and turns around ]
Liz: I need to know you’re not going to hurt him.
Katarina: You’ve never called me that.
Liz: You won’t, will you?
[ Katarina shakes her head slightly, then turns to walks away ]

[ Liz places a call ] [ Beep, phone speed-dialing ]
[ Ressler’s cellphone rings ]
Ressler: Ressler.
Liz: It’s me.
[ Red listens in to the call via the bug Dembe placed on Ressler’s lapel ]
Ressler: Where are you? Are you alright?
Liz: I’m okay, but this was a mistake.
Ressler: Cooper’s going out of his mind.
Liz: I need help with Dom – Equipment, medications. Same place as last time?
Ressler: I’ll be there. 30 minutes.
[ Beep ]
Red: We should have Chuck and Morgan follow Donald. I want to know as soon as they make contact.

[ The safe house ] [ Dr Clemons enters the monitoring room ]
Katarina: Is it done?
Dr Clemons: He’s conscious. The seizure has abated, but I’m concerned that he might have–
Katarina: I’m aware of your concerns, Doctor. You’ve made them very clear.
Dr Clemons: No, you don’t understand. He’s having some kind of episode.
[ Dom’s room ] [ Dr Clemons and Katarina enter ] [ Monitor beeping ]
Dom: [ In Russian ] Lena. Lena. I thought you were bringing me my tea.
Dr Clemons: He’s been drifting in and out of Russian. Calling for a woman named Lena. Do you know who that is?
Katarina: Lena Volkova. She was his wife. Dom. Can you hear me? Lena’s not here. Dom, open your eyes.
[ Dom sees Katarina as a young woman ]
Dom: It’s you. You’re here.
Young Katarina: I’m here.
Dom: He gave you back to me. I thought I’d lost you forever.
[ Dom reaches up to stroke Katarina’s cheek. He pulls her hand to his lips and kisses it ]
Dom: [ Sobbing ]

[ Morgan, Chuck and another of Red’s men, Bud, are parked out of eyesight of Ressler’s SUV which is parked under an overpass. They are monitoring the situation with binoculars ]
Red: Any movement?
Chuck: Negative. He’s still parked under the overpass.
Red: How does that work? Is he “under an overpass” or “in an underpass”?
Morgan: Stand by. I got a car coming in.
Chuck: It’s Agent Keen. She’s walking to his car. What now?
Red: Let’s just wait and see.
[ Liz gets into Ressler’s SUV ]
Ressler: Keen, I–
Liz: Don’t say it.
Ressler: Don’t say what exactly? Of the 10,000 things I should say–
Liz: Ressler.
Ressler: What, don’t commit felony kidnapping? Don’t betray everyone you work with? The only people who’ve proven over the last seven years how much they actually care about you.
Liz: It’s done. I made my choices. And I’m not here for your forgiveness or approval.
Ressler: Then what are you here for? Why did you call me? Just to inform me that you’re torturing your grandfather for information?
Liz: No one’s being tortured. Come on. You know me better than that.
Ressler: Do I? See, I thought I did, but lately, boy, you’re full of surprises.
Liz: He’s in a safe house – in the warehouse district.
Ressler: With your mother, the woman who shot him in the chest!
Liz: She’s not gonna hurt him.
Ressler: Oh, and you believe her. Well, you got it all figured out.
[ Red is listening in ]
Liz: He had another seizure. We need more doctors, advanced equipment.
Ressler: So that’s why you called me. He needs more doctors?
Liz: He has answers. All of them. I thought if he wouldn’t talk to her, he’d talk to me, have some human response to his granddaughter pleading for help.
Ressler: And he said nothing?
Liz: It’s my mistake. Whatever humanity he had died a long time ago.

[ Dom’s room ]
Dom: [ In Russian ] … it’s all falling apart. Everything. Gone.
Katarina: What’s happening to him?
Dr Clemons: It’s not uncommon for seizure patients to experience delusions, even hallucinations.
Katarina: He’s talking like it’s years ago.
Dr Clemons: He’s lost any sense of time. I can administer an antipsychotic. It may work to block the dopamine and serotonin in the brain.
Katarina: No.
Dr Clemons: No? I don’t understand.
Katarina: I want the truth, Doctor. And I don’t care if he tells the woman I am now or the woman I was then.
[ Monitor beeping ]
Young Katarina: [ Russian ] Papa. Thank God I have found you. I’m…in trouble. I need your help.

[ Ressler’s SUV ]
Ressler: Tell me where he is. I’ll go myself with a transport van, get him whatever help he needs.
Liz: And what about my mother?
Ressler: Liz, you know this has to end.
Liz: I know how Reddington wants it to end. Or how it’ll end if you go by the book. But can’t you just ignore the rules, just this one time?
Ressler: Think about what you’re asking me to do. She tortured Reddington, shot Dom, abducted Dembe’s imam.
Liz: To save her own life! And mine!
Ressler: Liz, listen to me. You’re on this quest to find answers about your family. Well, I’m as close to family as you got, and I’m telling you – if you don’t stop protecting her, you’ll end up destroying yourself.
Liz: I’m sorry.
Ressler: Don’t be.
Liz: I shouldn’t have put you in this position.
Ressler: You don’t have anything to apologize for. I would do anything for you if I could.
Liz: But you can’t do this.
Ressler: [ Sighs ] Now I’m the one who’s sorry.

[ Liz gets out of Ressler’s SUV ]
Chuck: Keen’s on the move.
Dembe: Let her go, Raymond.
Red: [ Into his phone ] Lock it down, Chuck.
[ Engine starts ] [ Morgan guns the gas ] [ ⚡️Tires screech⚡️ ] [ Red’s men pour out ]
Liz: Ressler!
[ Liz and Ressler draw their guns, but it’s three-to-two and two of Red’s guys have semi-automatic rifles. Ressler and Liz lower their guns ]
Morgan: [ To Red, on phone ] We’re good here. Targets secure.

[ Monitor beeping ]
Dom: Listen to me. I know what you’re planning. I know you think it’s your only way out.
Katarina: What I’m planning?
Dom: I know you’re in danger.
Young Katarina: In danger? I’m being hunted. They will stop at nothing until they find me and destroy me.
Dom: We can handle the Cabal.
Young Katarina: You’re not listening. It’s Townsend. They put a bounty on my head. I have to run.
Dom: No! You can’t leave me again.
Katarina: [ Russian ] I don’t want to, Father. But they’ll kill me. I’ve been framed. They think I have the Archive.
Dom: Sikorsky?
Young Katarina: Yes. Yes. Help me stop them. Help me understand why they think I took it.
Dom: Because you did.
Katarina: What are you talking about?
Dom: I can help you. But what you are planning, it– It breaks my heart.

[ In a commercial kitchen in a brick building, Red and Dembe look at city grid maps on a tablet ]
Dembe: We know Katarina is holding Dom somewhere in this 2-mile radius.
Red: I want every building scrutinized. See if they’re occupied and, if so, by whom. Any abandoned buildings get top priority.
Dembe: I have six teams mobilizing.
Red: She chose this area ’cause it’s filled with midsize warehouses. Here. These six blocks. Two dozen structures. That’s where I’d go. So that’s where she’ll be.
[ Morgan and Chuck bring in Ressler and Liz ]
Ressler: You followed me!
Red: Of course I didn’t. I had you followed. Take it easy, Donald. The veins on your neck are straining. You don’t want a ruptured aneurysm. [ To Liz: ] As for you, I can’t begin to describe my disappointment.
Liz: Oh, thank God.
Ressler: Be disappointed all you want. She’s still a federal agent. And so am I. You can’t hold us!
Red: You and Harold – Always telling me what I can’t do while I’m doing it. Tell you what. Why don’t we split the difference? You go, Agent Keen can stay with me.
Liz: I won’t tell you where she is.
Red: Then I won’t ask. Run along, Donald. Call in the cavalry. I’ve got quite a head start. The FBI won’t find them before I do.
[ Dembe and Ressler leave ]
Red: [ To Liz ] Tea?
[ Outside, Ressler turns around to challenge Dembe ]
Ressler: You can’t be on board with this. I mean, he’s out of control!
[ Door closes ]
Ressler: Promise me he won’t harm Keen.
Dembe: He won’t.
[ Dembe gives Ressler back his gun. Ressler leaves ]

[ Red’s cellphone rings ]
Red: Do forgive me, Harold, but I’m a little busy at the moment.
Cooper: I know what you’re doing, and I’m calling to tell you to stop!
[ Ressler is with Cooper ]
Red: You’re angry. That’s understandable. I would be, too, if my agent snuck away to have a secret meeting with the woman my task force was searching for.
Cooper: That’s for me to deal with. Is it true you’re holding Keen?
Red: Well, what choice do I have? If I let her go, she’ll warn Grendel’s mother.
Cooper: We’ve talked about that. Elizabeth’s mother is not to be harmed.
Red: And I agreed. Anything else?
Cooper: I’m not kidding, Reddington.
Red: Well, you don’t sound like you’re kidding, Harold. But you’ve always known where this is headed. What she’s done must be avenged.
Cooper: Not by her murder.
Red: When it’s over, I’ll look up and see what remains. If there are any bridges, I’ll cross them when I get there.
[ Red’s cellphone flips shut ]
Cooper: [ To Ressler ] Get our people to the warehouse district. Bring Agents Mojtabai and Park up to speed. It’s a long shot, but maybe we can find them first.

[ Dom’s bedside ]
Katarina: I need a name. It’s not enough to say I was framed.
Young Katarina: I need to prove who has the Archive.
Dom: You know.
Katarina: It wasn’t me. Why are you saying that? Okay, it doesn’t matter who took it back then. What matters is who has it now. I need a name.
Dom: [ Muttering ]
Katarina: Is it Reddington? Is he the one you’re protecting?
Young Katarina: Goodbye, Papa.
[ She begins to walks away ]
Dom: No! Don’t go!
Young Katarina: I have to go. They’re coming for me. They’re close. If I don’t leave now, they’ll kill us all.
Dom: Reddington.
Katarina: Reddington. He has the Archive?
Dom: Yes. You took it, but he has it. And so do you.
Katarina: We both have it? How is that possible? Tell me what you mean.
Young Katarina: Tell me now, or you won’t see me again.

[ Liz is sitting at a round table. Red pulls out a chair across from her ]
Red: How long have you been helping her? That’s how you know about Ilya, isn’t it? You were there when she was questioning him, helped her get away. You know you can’t trust that woman, right?
Liz: That woman is my mother.
Red: Oh, she’s just using that to exploit you.
Liz: Why?
Red: So you’d do exactly what you’ve already done.
Liz: I know about the Sikorsky Archive. That’s why the Townsend Directive was issued. She was framed.
Red: Is that the story she told you? She’s a victim? An innocent wrongly accused?
Liz: Are you N-13?
[ Red stares at her icily ]
Liz: Because she certainly believes you are. Do you have it? The Archive?
Red: I see. So this is a ghost story. And you believe her.
Liz: What choice do I have? She’s the one looking for answers. You’re the one hiding them. Maybe she’s not telling me everything. Do I still have questions? Of course. But for now, the only one I need to answer is this – Am I willing to let you kill her? And the answer is no.
[ Red’s cellphone rings ]
Red: What’s the word?
Bud: I think we found her. It’s a medium-size shipping complex on Paxton, only nothing’s getting shipped ’cause the company went bankrupt six weeks ago. It’s a good spot for a safe house – easy in and out, close to the main roads out of town.
Red: Any movement?
Chuck: Definitely. Bud popped the lock. We can’t see who, but there’s people inside.
Red: I’ll see you there.
[ Call ends ]
[ Red gets up. Chair slides back ]
Liz: If you hurt her, we’re done. Understand? Whatever this is, whatever relationship we had or have, will be over.
[ Red scrutinizes Liz’s imploring face, then leaves ]
[ Door closes ]
[ Dembe takes out a pair of handcuffs ]

[ Red and his men enter the warehouse Katarina has been using as a safe house ]
[ Silenced gunshots (💥💥) One of Katarina’s guards falls ] [ Grunts ] [ Gun cocks ]
[ A figure comes out ]
Red: Hands! Show me your hands!
Dr Clemons: Don’t shoot. It’s me.
Red: Where is she?
Dr Clemons: Gone.
Red: How long ago?
Dr Clemons: A-A few minutes.
[ Red enters Dom’s room ] [ Monitor beeping ]
Red: Dom. Dom.
[ Red squeezes Dom’s shoulder ]
Red: It’s Raymond.
Dom: Raymond. [ Wheezes ] You’re too late. S-She was here. I– I told her.
Red: [ Gently ] Told her what? ⋘⋙ Dom. What did you tell her?
Dom: Everything.
[ Katarina is trying make her way out of the building. A man with a rifle comes around a corner. She grabs him and slams him against the wall. He falls. She takes his handgun and continues on. She exits the building. Far above, someone exits the building onto the fire escape ]

[ Ressler is driving with Park in a vehicle ]
Park: We just crossed into the warehouse district.
Cooper: Focus on the streets east of the pier. We’re scrambling units.
Ressler: I don’t like our chances. I don’t think we’re gonna find that warehouse before Reddington does.
Aram: Actually, maybe they already have. I’m looking at satellite feeds, and there is a lot of activity on Paxton Ave.
Ressler: Copy that.

[ Liz sits at the table in handcuffs. Dembe leans against the wall, eyes cast down ]
Liz: Dembe. Dembe, look at me. Please. She’s my mother. You can’t let him kill her.
[ Liz gets up and runs at Dembe, who restrains her ]
Liz: You know this is wrong! Why are you helping him?!
Dembe: I can’t answer that.
Liz: Let me go. Let me try and stop him.
[ Dembe stares at her ]

[ Monitors beeping rapidly ]
Red: It’s okay, Dom. Everything’s gonna be okay.
Dr Clemons: Mr. Reddington, I need additional equipment. His heart rate is irregular, blood pressure’s spiking.
[ Monitors beeping ]
Dom: [ Weakly ] You said I’d never see her again. But she– she came.
Dr Clemons: Mr. Reddington, I really–
Red: Thank you, Doctor. You’ve done everything you can.
[ Dr Clemons leaves ]
Dom: I held her hand. Touched her face. [ Wheezing ] At least– I got to say goodbye to her.
Red: Yes.
Dom: My daughter. My Katarina.
Red: [ Gently ] She loves you. She always has. Nothing can ever change that.
Dom: [ Gasping weakly ]
[ Red clasps Dom’s arm ]

[ Katarina is outside, trying to evade Red’s men and the FBI. She ducks behind some equipment, but Chuck spots her ]
Chuck: I got eyes! [ Radio beeps ] Target heading north on Ridgemont.
[ Katarina goes through a turnstyle into a parking lot. In the enclosed parking lot, a man and a woman are walking together and talking ]
Carol: You can check the purchase order tomorrow morning when they’re back at the office.
Reggie: Will do. Have a good night, Carol.
[ Reggie leaves; Carol walks to her vehicle ]
[ Katarina approaches Carol’s vehicle. A sticker on the back says “Proud Parent of An Honor Student ~ John Adams Middle School” ]
Katarina: Carol?
Carol: Yes. I’m sorry. Do we know each other?
Katarina: I thought that was you. Donna Hays. We met a few weeks ago at John Adams.
Carol: Right. Donna. How are you?
Katarina: So good.
Carol: I’m sorry. Remind me again how you’re connected to the s–
[ Chuck and Bud approach ]
Chuck: There!
[ Katarina points her gun at Carol ]
Katarina: The keys. Give me your keys.
[ Carol obeys ]
Chuck: Cover the exit!
[ Engine starts ] [ Katarina presses the gas ] [ Chuck shoots 💥 through the SUV, right through the back window and front windshield. A second shot 💥 rings out, but Katarina gets away in the stolen vehicle ]

[ Guns drawn, Ressler and Park enter Katarina’s safe house. They separate. Ressler enters the room where Dom is. Red is sitting quietly next to the bed. Dom has died ]
Ressler: Reddington. [ Sighs ] You can try and spread the blame around all you want, but this is on you. Keen was looking for answers – Answers that you have. If anyone’s responsible for this man’s death, it’s you.
[ Red kisses Dom’s temple. He puts on his hat, straightens the brim and slowly gets up ]
[ As Red walks past Ressler, he says: ]
Red: You’re probably right.

[ Red calls Dembe ]
Red: Dom’s dead, Dembe.
Dembe: No.
Red: He’s dead. And she’s gone.
Dembe: Raymond, I’m sorry.
Red: She knows everything. So we have to find her. We have a plate number for the car she’s driving. It won’t last long.
Dembe: If she does know–
Red: There’s only one move she can make. Our best chance is to intercept it.
Dembe: That’s dangerous.
Red: I have Chuck and the others.
Dembe: I should be with you.
Red: Take Elizabeth to the apartment. Hold her there. I’ll call you when this part’s done.
[ Cellphone beeps ]

[ Red’s men unload rifles from two vehicles parked alongside a grassy embankment ]
[ Red drives up to the checkpoint of a parking lot guarded by two armed men ]
Security Guard: Hey. Boss expecting company?
Security Guard 2: Negative. Nothing on the schedule.
Security Guard: Oh! Oh, oh, oh. Roll down your window, sir.
[ Red doesn’t respond to the command ]
Security Guard: Hey, we got a wise guy here. Open up.
[ Gunshots 💥💥 ring out ] [ Both security guards fall ]
[ Red drives on in ]

[ Telephone rings ] [ Keypad beeps ]
Susan: Mr. Heidegger’s office. 🔘 [See Note]
Katarina: Mr. Heidegger, please.
Susan: I’m sorry. He’s not in right now. Can I take a message?
Katarina: It’s urgent that I speak with him. A personal emergency.
Susan: May I ask who’s calling?
Katarina: Katarina Rostova.
Susan: I’m sorry. Could you–
Katarina: You heard me. Put him on the line.
Heidegger: I understand. We all thought so, Susan. [ Sighs ] No, you did the right thing calling me at home. Go ahead and put her through.
[ Susan puts the call through ] [ Keypad beeping ]
Heidegger: This is Heidegger. To whom am I speaking?
Katarina: You already know. That’s why you took the call.
Heidegger: Dear lady, I don’t know who you think you’ve reached, but there’s some misunderstanding.
Katarina: You’re William Heidegger. The highest-ranking representative of the Townsend Organization in the Western Hemisphere.
Heidegger: Well, whoever I am is irrelevant. Katarina Rostova is dead.
Katarina: You believe the Kazanjian Brothers killed me because that’s what I wanted you to believe. It was a good plan. It tricked Townsend into paying the bounty on my head, part of which I used to prove my innocence.
Heidegger: Assuming, for the sake of discussion, you are who you claim to be, what proof could you possibly have?
Katarina: I have the identity of N-13.
Heidegger: You’re N-13.
Katarina: No. But I know who is. And I’m willing to give you his name in exchange for my safety.
Heidegger: There’s a park on the corner of Wabash and Grant. I take my granddaughter there to feed the ducks. West benches. Will that do?
Katarina: I’ll be there.
[ Cellphone beeps ]
[ Heidegger hangs up ]
[ Red, it turns out, is sitting across from Heidegger ]
Red: Well done, William.
Heidegger: You won’t survive this.
Red: I appreciate your concern. Oddly enough, I was about to say the same thing to you.
[ Chuck escorts Heidegger away ]

[ Red calls Dembe ] [ Cellphone dialing ]
[ Cellphone ringing ] [ Dembe is driving Liz, who sits next to him ]
Dembe: Raymond.
Red: We were right. She reached out to Heidegger, set a meeting. I’ll text you the address.
[ Cellphone beeps ]
Liz: [ To Dembe ] Is it done? Did he kill her? ⋘⋙ I know you’re not gonna help me, but you could at least have the decency to tell me whether or not my mother’s dead. ⋘⋙ I know you’re loyal to him, and I’m not asking you to be disloyal. But I do have a right to know.
Dembe: Your grandfather, Dom. He passed.
Liz: [ Sighs ]
Dembe: I’m sorry. You asked why I’m still helping Raymond. And I said I didn’t know anymore, but that’s not true.
[ Dembe pulls over and stops the car on the side of the road ]
Dembe: [ Sighs ] I know it seems like Raymond can be selfish and sometimes cruel.
Liz: Sometimes? He’s killed everyone I’ve ever cared about. My father, my husband, my grandfather. And now you’re dropping me off? Why? So you can help him kill my mother, too?
Dembe: It isn’t what it appears to be.
Liz: I was always glad you were in his life. He had a better angel that might influence his behavior.
[ Liz is crying, her mascara smeared ]
Liz: But now I know you’re not. You can’t. You’re no better than he is. [ Voice breaking ] I can’t anymore. I’m done. [ Sniffles ] I can’t fight him anymore. He wins. He always wins.
[ Dembe softens, turns toward her. Liz clocks him, grabs the keys and gets out the her side of the car ]
[ Dembe gets out of the drivers side and looks around. He can’t see her. She’s crouching alongside the car. He walks around the back. She gets back in and moves to the drivers side ] [ Doors lock ]
[ Dembe points his gun at her through the window, but she knows he won’t shoot ]
Liz: [ Muffled ] He’s not gonna win this time!
[ Engine starts ] [ Liz drives away ]

[ Katarina approaches Heidegger who is sitting on one of a pair of park benches facing a pond. His chin is tucked in and his cap pulled down. Katarina sits alongside him, looking straight ahead ]
Katarina: Before you get any ideas, I have teams watching from every angle, and I’m armed.
[ She doesn’t have teams, just a gun ]
Katarina: Reddington is N-13. He has the Archive. He’s the one you’ve been looking for.
[ No response from Heidegger ]
Katarina: Say something. ⋘⋙ Did you hear me?!
[ Gun cocks ] [ Red lays the barrel of his gun on Katarina’s shoulder ]

Red: No, I don’t believe he did. The pistol.
[ Katarina surrenders her pistol ] [ Red sits down on the bench adjacent to her ]
Red: Dominic’s dead.
Katarina: He wasn’t when I left him.
Red: No matter. You killed him, just as sure as I killed poor Heidegger there.
Katarina: Am I supposed to feel something about that? Dom set me up, led me to what was supposed to be my public slaughter. Think what you want, but I won’t be shedding any tears for that monster.
Red: No, I wouldn’t think so.
[ Katarina reaches into her pocket and quietly speed-dials Liz ]
[ Liz’s cellphone is on a table. It vibrates ]
Voicemail answers: You’ve reached Elizabeth Keen’s voicemail. Please leave me a message.

[ At the safe house, Ressler and Park look on as Dom’s body is zipped into a body bag ]
[ Liz calls Ressler on Dembe’s cellphone ] [ Phone speed-dialing ]
[ Ressler’s cellphone ringing ] [ Cellphone beeps ]
Ressler: Dembe?
Liz: No, Ressler. It’s me.
Ressler: Keen? I’m sorry. We– We got here too late. Dom’s gone.
Liz: I know.
[ Liz wipes the tears and messy mascara from her eyes ]
Ressler: You do? How? Where are you? Why are you calling me from Dembe’s phone?
Liz: Ressler, listen to me. He’s going to kill her. Reddington’s on his way to kill my mother.
Ressler: Hold on. Slow down.
Liz: She’s there now. The park on Wabash and Grant. That’s where he’s gonna meet her. You got to send units there now.
Ressler: Done. But, Keen, you got to realize the best-case scenario here is we arrest her.
Liz: Then arrest her. Just get there. Now.
Ressler: Where are you?
Liz: I’m on my way, but I’m unarmed. You got to stop him.

Katarina: All those years searching for answers, and you were right in front of me the whole time.
Red: For what it’s worth, I didn’t know what Dom was planning in Belgrade.
Katarina: I believe you. But after – you let the world believe the lie. You dangled me out there, let everyone think I had the Archive. And now I know why. Because if they were chasing me, it meant they weren’t chasing you.
Red: It’s not quite that simple.
Katarina: You’re N-13, aren’t you? You framed me. You fed me to Townsend as a patsy, and Dominic knew and helped you do it.

[ Cooper’s office. Aram enters ]
Aram: Sir. Sir, I just got off the phone with Agent Ressler, and he’s gonna do it. Mr. Reddington’s really gonna do it.
Cooper: Do what?
Aram: He’s gonna kill Agent Keen’s mother. City Park. Wabash and Grant. They’re there now.
Cooper: Scramble units.

Red: I could’ve helped you the way I always have, kept you one step ahead. But staying safe wasn’t enough. You needed answers. Well, now you have them. And now they’ve destroyed you.
Katarina: What if I promised never to tell a soul what I’ve learned?
Red: Well, that would be the last lie you ever told.
Katarina: You won’t kill me. You can’t.
Red: Why is that?
Katarina: Because Elizabeth would never forgive you.
Red: You don’t know a damn thing about Elizabeth.
Katarina: Oh, that’s not true. I’ve gotten to know her. She chose me. She’s helping me. She has no idea who you are. Me? I’m her mother. And even now, there’s love there.
[ ♫ Violin 🎻 plays ]
[ Katarina gets up and begins to walk away. Red stands up and follows ]
Red: I can’t let you leave.
Katarina: [ Chuckles ]
[ Katarina turns toward Red ]
Katarina: [ Taunting ] My God. I can’t imagine what this must be like for you, knowing you can’t kill me because of how much Elizabeth loves her mother.

❌❌❌ 8:2 End Katarina Rostova Pt 2

For S8 Episode 8:2 Katarina Rostova Pt 2 🎯 EW recap ¤ 🌅 Photo Gallery ¤ 🎹 Music Videos ¤ 📒 Script link: https://wp.me/pDKwi-aAN [ “you are here” ]


༺✦ ♤ ✦༻


Ah, Heidegger! I doubt the choice of the name is an accident. Martin Heidegger was the philosopher of “Verworfenheit” ~ that we are “thrown into” situations beyond our control. Think of Katarina, born the daughter of “a domineering spy master” who trains her and dictates her every move, including, starting at the age of 15, requiring her to sleep with enemy soldiers to prove her patriotism.

A phenomenologist, Heidegger developed the concept of “Dasein” (“being there”), dashing the classical notion of subject-object into the idea that a thing (an object) cannot be decoupled from its uses by the subject. Having a gun / not having a gun, having a vehicle / not having a vehicle. The timing of the need for thing to use proliferates in this episode, epitomized by the mysterious Sikorsky Archive, the ultimate McGuffin. It is protection for Red — but also a potential target on his back. Katarina thinks knowledge of its owner will liberate her — until it does the opposite.

And, of course, there is Heidegger’s notion of Death in “Being and Time” as framing all Being, yet ineluctably beyond Being, locking humans into one side of the unknowable. Death dominates this episode. The character “Heidegger” himself dies, as do Katarina and Dom, leaving behind only survivors and “ghost stories.”

Martin Heidegger himself, the philosopher, joined the Nazi Party in 1933 and became Rector of the University of Freiburg. At 36, though married, he fell in love with 19-year-old Jewish philosophy student Hannah Arendt, who later named, defined and described the totalitarian state. Their letters are preserved.
