Brief: Season 5 ended with a mad chase between Liz and Red to claim a duffel bag of bones. At the end of the chase, Red walked away with the prize ~ the answer to a secret he has been trying to keep from Liz. In the course of the series, many people have died trying to get the duffel to Liz and keep it away from Red, including, most importantly, her husband Tom and Mr Kaplan, Red’s cleaner and Liz’s one-time nanny. Red takes the duffel to the homestead of Liz’s maternal grandfather Dom, an infamous former KGB operative once known by the codename Oleander. Liz’s mother also was a KGB spy. Liz once met Dom but he and Red have kept her relationship with Dom a secret. At Dom’s homestead, Red has incinerated the skeleton, with Dom remarking, “She may not know your secret, but she knows you’ve got one. She’s never gonna let it go.”

However, unbeknownst to Red and Dom, Liz has collaborated with her half-sister Jennifer (also by Raymond Reddington) to purloin the duffel bag before he claimed it. In addition to the skeleton, it contains a DNA report which identifies the bones as being those of ~ Raymond Reddington! This is the big secret. The man we have known as Raymond “Red” Reddington appears to be an imposter! Liz and Jennifer have just one goal now: to find out who the man is who assumed the identity of Raymond Reddington 30 years ago – and to exact their revenge.

Episode 5:22 Sutton Ross 🎯 EW recap ¤ 🌅 Photo Gallery ¤ 📒 Script


༺ ♤ ༻

Brief: Aram and Samar are “♫ At Last” engaged. Never mind that she said “Yes” before he proposed, the serious problem they face now is she is in a coma after nearly drowning in a submerged van before Aram rescued her. Time will tell if she will wake up or ever be able to breathe on her own again.

Speaking of time, Red and Liz are in the final sprint to recover the duffel bag containing a skeleton that Mr Kaplan intended to be delivered to Liz but Tom intercepted and was killed for his trouble. Both Red and Liz know who has the duffel bag, though Red knows the true identity of the man who has it (Sutton Ross) and Liz only has a pseudonym (Max Birmingham). US Marshall and dirty cop Ian Garvey, who killed Tom for the duffel bag to wield power over Red, managed to deliver it to Ross before he himself was killed by Liz in a showdown between Garvey and Red that got out of hand. Sutton Ross is an enemy of Red’s who Garvey “disappeared” into Witness Protection and Red has thought was dead.

Liz has no idea what is in the duffel bag, and Red intends to keep it that way. Liz believes the duffel contains a secret of Red’s that Mr Kaplan wanted her to know. But, given the choice between going with Kaplan or staying with Red, in last year’s Finale, Liz chose Red, an act that resulted in a series of events ending in Mr Kaplan’s suicide. If Liz had learned the secret, would she have chosen differently? The yearlong quest will come to a climax in this Season Finale.


[ Men dressed in FBI uniforms, led by Sutton Ross, enter the offices of Veritable Robotics in Richmond VA. They march right past the receptionist ]
Secretary: Can I help you?
[ The men get into an elevator ]
Sutton Ross: Walter Reardon?

Reardon: Who are you?
Ross: I’m Special Agent Vernon Duquesne, FBI. You’re under arrest. [ To his men ] Take everything! … I want it all vouchered as evidence.
Reardon: Evidence of what?
Ross: Market manipulation … , wire fraud, money laundering. You and your lawyer have all the time in the world to read the indictment before the arraignment.

Holt Campbell: His lawyer’s right here. Holt Campbell. Veritable’s general counsel. You want to tell me what the hell is going on?
[ Ross hands him papers ]
Ross: Arrest and search warrants signed by the U.S. Duty Magistrate. …
[ The men push past with boxes ]
Campbell: Those documents contain trade secrets we’ve spent millions to acquire and protect.
[ Dialing ] Call Judge Kerr’s chambers. … This is Holt Campbell at Veritable Robotics. … Your boss signed warrants to search our offices and arrest our CFO. Really? Well, if he didn’t sign them, why am I holding the paperwork?

༺ ♤ ༻
[ Campbell rushes out onto a loading dock. Walter Reardon is cuffed to a
pole. Bankers boxes are stacked nearby ]
Reardon: Hey, call the FBI, the real FBI.
Campbell: What happened?
Reardon: Nothing. Whoever they were, they left everything behind. I want to know why.
༺ ♤ ༻

[ The hospital where Samar is being treated. She is unconscious, hooked up to a ventilator ]
Nurse: What are you doing?
Aram: She’s shivering.
Nurse: She’s supposed to be cold. … She is suffering
from cerebral ischemia. Cooling her protects her brain while she heals.
Aram: Right. By decreasing the brain’s demand for oxygen, you reduce neurotransmitter production
like glutamate. …
Nurse: I’m just following protocol. Are you her husband? …
Aram: I’m her fiancé. Granted, I proposed while she was unconscious.
Nurse: Do you have power of attorney?
Aram: No, but–
Nurse: Then I’m gonna have to ask you to step aside. …
༺ ♤ ༻

Liz: The man we’re looking for is Sutton Ross. In the ’80s, when a company or a country wanted to steal R&D rather than develop it, Ross and his team stole it for them.
Ressler: Didn’t he steal R&D on a stealth fighter for China?
Liz: A defective stealth fighter called the Grayscape Seventeen. The Navy … made sure he stole plans for a plane that couldn’t fly, and when it crashed, China … turned him over to the feds, who issued an arrest warrant, and Ross disappeared.
Cooper: Until showing up in Costa Rica under the alias “Max Birmingham.”
Ressler: So, why would Garvey give him the bag?
Liz: Because when Ross went AWOL, Garvey was the Marshal assigned to arrest him, and instead of bringing him in, Garvey ended up protecting him. …
Ressler: Any idea where Ross is now?
Liz: Yes. … Ross and a dozen suspects posing as FBI agents showed up to a robotics company yesterday, waving phony warrants.
Cooper: So the guy holding Reddington’s secret is stealing tech from a robotics company?
Liz: Yes and no. The police report says he stole it, and then left it all behind.
Cooper: Nobody robs a company for kicks. Get there. …

[ Bell chimes ] [ Red and Dembe enter a tailor shop where a man is being fitted for a suit ]
Red: Ah, what a lovely shop. You certainly look busy as a beaver.
Lundgren: I’m with a client.
Red: Yes, and I’m terribly sorry for the intrusion, but I
need a moment of your time. It’s about a customer.
Lundgren: Remind me, were we doing side tabs or traditional belt loops?
Red: Oh, go for the side tabs. They keep you honest in the midsection.
Lundgren: I’m sorry, sir, but as you can see, we are in the middle of a fitting.
Red: Yes, I understand. Oh, my gosh! You’re– [ Laughing ] Oh, dear. I am such a fan.
John Waters [ Playing himself ]: Why, thank you. Thank you.
Red: Your films, your writing, your artwork. I can’t believe this. … You probably get this all the time, but I must tell you, I absolutely adore–
Waters: “Pink Flamingos”?
Red: Well, yes, but your Christmas show. … I have to tell you, it was one of the most surprisingly warm,
incredibly nostalgic, funny evenings in my memory.
Waters: Well, look at you. What a sweet man.
Red: [ Laughing ] That story about the squirrel – the one with the tiny nuts. Oh, my God.
[ Chuckles ] Yeah, yeah. … Red:
[ Shows a photo to Lundgren ] Your client, Sutton Ross – I’ve fallen out of touch with him over the years, but I do need to find him right away.
༺ ♤ ༻

Campbell: Every document taken from Reardon’s office was returned.
Liz: That means they targeted Reardon as a way of getting into the office.
Campbell: Not just the office. … Three of the hard drives are missing. They contain Ravi [Desai]’s personal
research on something called the Rafferty Project.
Liz: Have you spoken to Mr. Desai?
Campbell: We’ve called and left messages, but we haven’t been able to reach him. His kids are off from school, so he took vacation time. …
Ressler: All right, well, we’re going to need access to your backup servers.
༺ ♤ ༻

Aram: [ On phone ] First of all, I want to thank you. … You distracted me. Right now, that is exactly what I need – the doctors, too. It keeps me from telling them what to do.
Liz: Are you telling them what to do?
Aram: Only when I think what they’re doing is wrong, so, like, all the time. Except now. Right now, I’m thinking
about Ravi Desai. … I’ve been a huge fan ever since he won the I-EEE Robotics and Automation Award as a PhD student at Brown. …
Ressler: So does that mean that you know what the Rafferty Project is?
Aram: Well, the backup files indicate that it’s some kind
of exoskeleton, a manned robot designed to help people go into hazardous areas.
Ressler: That’s an idea that Ross could sell for a fortune on the open market.
Aram: Well, maybe, but the idea is all he’d be selling. Whoever buys these drives will not be able to build one. … [T]he files are all snippets of ideas and partial
equations. I mean, Desai could build a robot from them, but no one else could …
Ressler: Well, we need to get to Desai and lock him down before Ross grabs him.
Aram: Oh, well, that shouldn’t be hard. He’s at a matinee with his kids. … I follow him on Instagram, and he just posted a picture with them on his way to a show at the Kittredge Theater.

༺ ♤ ༻
[ Outside the Kittredge Theatre ]
Ross: I want all three.
Ross’s Guy: The kids, too?
Ross: Insurance, in case Mr. Desai is not in the mood to cooperate. …
༺ ♤ ༻

Lundgren: Please, Mr Ross is very powerful. If I tell you how to find him, if he knew that I told you, he would come for me.
Red: Hm. No matter how powerful you think Sutton Ross might be, if you don’t
help me–
Waters: Oh, my God. That’s it! You’re the guy! The one with the name. I-It’s not a palindrome or or a rhyme. It’s that lovely last name with the alliteration.
Red: [ Laughs ]
Waters: It’s– No, no. Don’t say it. Don’t say it out loud. It’s P- Paddington. Uh, Raddington. Or Rafael. Rayburn. Or Rufus- Rufus- Reddington.
Lundgren: You’re Raymond Reddington?
Waters: Yes! Raymond Reddington! I told you not to say it. Raymond Reddington. Wow. What a name. What a man. And people think I’m weird.
Red: [ Laughs ]
Lundgren: Please, all I know is where I send the invoices for my work.
Red: Well? …

[ Ravi Desai is at the matinee movie at the Kittredge Theater with his kids ]
[ Sutton Ross comes up to Desai ]
Ross: There’s a sniper in the balcony ready to execute your children. If you want them to live, you need to leave with me right now.
Desai: [ To his kids ] I’ll be right back.
༺ ♤ ༻
Ressler: All right, you secure the entrance. I’ll get in touch with security. …
Ressler: Keen! …
[ Sutton Ross has Desai at gunpoint. He sees Liz and does an about-face, heads back into the theater with Ressler in pursuit ]
[ In the theater ]
Ross’s guy: Hey, kids. Your dad needs you to come with me.
Ross: [ Into comms ] New plan – I need vehicles at the rear.
[ Ross emerges from the theater with Desai ]
Ross: Cover me. Someone’s on my tail. [ He forces Desai into a vehicle ]
[ 💥💥💥 Gunfight 💥💥💥 ]
Ressler: Keen, they’re coming your way! Got a black SUV.
[ Red walks up shooting 💥💥💥 ]

Red: Where’s Elizabeth?
Ressler: She’s just ahead of you.

Liz: [ On phone ] … What?!
Red: You need to leave Ross to me. …
Liz: As soon as I get the duffel bag, he’s all yours.
Red: You need to pull over.
Liz: You’re a fugitive. I’m a cop. You get in my way, I swear to God, I’ll arrest you.
[ Liz’s vehicle 💥‼️ Crashes ‼️💥 into a dumpster ] [ Horn blares ]
Red: Turn around.
Dembe: We’ll lose Ross.
Red: Dembe, turn around.

[ Red runs up to Liz in her vehicle. She has a gash on her forehead and is dazed ]
Red: Let me look at you. Come here.
Liz: [ Groggily ] Raymond Reddington, you’re under arrest.
Red: Ah, that’s a deep cut. You’ll need stitches.
Liz: You have the right to an attorney.
Red: Yeah.
Liz: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be used against you.
[ Red gives Liz a handkerchief for her forehead ]
Red: Keep pressure on it. I’ll call you an ambulance.
Liz: I’ll get you for this.
Red: You’ll try, but there’s a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore, looking like an idiot.
༺ ♤ ༻
Ressler: [ On phone ] You arrested Reddington?
Liz: I was too dazed to actually arrest him. And he let Ross go to make sure I was okay.
Ressler: Hit me, hug me. Reddington’s moral code in a nutshell. …
Well, Reddington shot a couple of Ross’s guys. I mean, we got a cellphone, but it’s locked. We need the access code.
Maybe there’s another way. …
[ Ressler presses the dead man’s finger to the home button on his cellphone ]
Ressler: It’s a burner. No e-mails, call logs, or contacts. Just one text sent to an international number.
Cooper: [ Reads ] “Winchester. 1500. AM.”
༺ ♤ ༻
[ Red and Dembe wait outside the room while Brimley plies his trade ]
Brimley’s Voice: I know you work for Ross, Hey, look at me!
Dembe: The truth always comes out.
Red: It better, or we’re not gonna find Sutton Ross.
Dembe: I’m talking about your truth. It was bound to surface. Ross wants blood. He thinks you ruined his life.
Red: I didn’t give Sutton Ross bogus plans for the
[ Chuckles ] Grayscape Seventeen.
Dembe: But he thinks you did, and because of that, he wants the world to know what’s inside the duffel.


༺ ♤ ༻
[ Brimley emerges ]
Brimley: This guy’s lips are sealed tighter than a bull’s ass in fly season. I’m gonna need another couple of bags of hickory briquettes and a squirt gun. …
༺ ♤ ༻
Aram: All right, the message was sent to a cell with an international number. 0-1-1 is the U.S. exit code and 3-8-1 is the country code for Serbia. … [A]fter Ravi Desai got his PhD, two robotics companies wanted to hire him. One was Veritable, the other AXG Robotics.
Ressler: A Serbian company?
Aram: And Homeland says two of their execs landed in Dulles this morning. …
Ressler: How does that get you the where and when Ross is giving them Desai? …
Aram: “AM” isn’t a time – it’s a place. A neighborhood in D.C., Adams Morgan. And in Adams Morgan is the old Winchester Pharmaceutical Plant.

Liz: So, 1500 is the time – 3:00 p.m.
Cooper: Did the Serbians list the hotel where they’re staying while in town?
Aram: Uh, yes. The Metro Suites downtown. Why?
Cooper: This whole mess started with a bunch of criminals pretending to be FBI agents. Maybe we should return the favor.

༺ ♤ ༻
Brimley: It’s done.
Red: Did he talk?
Brimley: Like Whoopi on “The View.” Yaketty-yak, all about the Rafferty Project.
Red: And the duffel bag?
Brimley: Never heard of it.
Red: What about Ross?
Brimley: Meeting a client at the old Winchester Pharmaceutical Plant at 3:00.
Dembe: What is the Rafferty Project?
Red: I don’t know what it is, but I know what it means. Ross is on to the next job, and the duffel may already be gone. …
༺ ♤ ༻
[ Outside the Winchester Pharmaceutical Plant ]
Red: We got eyes from about 200 yards southwest.
Morgan: We’re in position.
Red: I want Ross and his hostage.
Morgan: Ready on your signal.
[ Sutton Ross walks with a metal briefcase up to a man
waiting ]
Ross: The drives were useless without the engineer who programmed them. Getting him doubles the price. Of
course, I can only deliver the actual mind. Accessing
what’s inside it is your job.
[ Desai walks over with his kids ]
[ Red, through the binoculars, suddenly sees that the man talking to Ross is Ressler ]
Red: [ Over his phone to Morgan ] Wait. Hold, hold, hold, hold.
Ravi Desai: Please, I’m begging you. Let my children go.
Red: Stand down. Abort.
[ Ressler walks toward an SUV with Desai and his kids ]
Ressler: [ Low voice, to Desai and his kids ] Don’t stop. Just keep walking. Everything’s gonna be fine. When that door opens, you get in and you stay down.
As soon as Desai and his kids are safe are safe inside the SUV,
Ressler and the SWAT team attack.
Ressler: [ Loudly ] Get on the ground! FBI! Hands on your head! On the ground now.
[ Ross and his men obey ]
[ Liz looks up to see Red’s Mercedes slowly driving by. Liz and Red exchange cold looks ]
༺ ♤ ༻

[ An interrogation room at the Post Office ]
Liz: Kidnapping, impersonating an officer, theft of trade secrets.
Ressler: And that’s even before we talk about the plans for the stealth fighter that you sold to China. Now, last time I checked, we still execute people for treason.
Liz: Ian Garvey gave you a duffel bag.
Sutton Ross: I know who you are. … You’re Elizabeth Keen.
Liz: You help us, we’ll help you.
Ross: Oh, you’ll help me, all right. And I have demands. … [N]o cameras. No audio recordings. Just you and me.
Liz: Why are you doing this?
Ross: Because I’ve looked in the bag.
Liz: Five minutes.
Ressler: Liz–
Liz: I’ll be fine.
Ressler: Five minutes. Not a second more.
[ Ressler leaves ]
Liz: So?
Ross: You may want to sit, Agent Keen.
༺ ♤ ༻
[ Cooper’s office ]
Red: I want Ross.
Cooper: I know. I’m not giving him to you.
Red: It was a clever ruse, detaining the Serbians
and inserting Ressler in their place.
Cooper: I’m on Elizabeth’s side on this.
Red: Yes, clearly. So allow me to put a fine point on the
cost of that decision. The duffel bag is mine. Its contents are personal. I want my privacy respected. You and Agent Keen are not honoring that, so I see no reason to honor our agreement.
Cooper: What agreement is that?
Red: Mine with the Task Force. It’s a simple ultimatum. I get Ross or the Blacklist ends. …

[ Ressler is watching Liz and Sutton Ross through the one-way glass when suddenly, Ross upends the table on her ]
Liz: Aaaah! Ressler!
Ressler: All teams, we have a level-four breach. East interrogation. We need emergency assistance now. …
༺ ♤ ༻
Cooper: What the hell happened?
Ressler: Ross has Keen hostage, doors locked …
Cooper: Contact HRT. Get an emergency-response team in here. …
[ Cellphone rings ]
Cooper: It’s him. Calling on Keen’s cell.
Ross: Okay. Here’s how this works. Do as I say or Agent Keen dies.
Liz: Aah! Don’t listen to him! If you breach from the
observation – …
Cooper: Mr Ross, you’re locked in an FBI blacksite. You’re in no position to make demands.
Ross: And yet, I am confident you will meet them. I want
two CZ 75s and a police caravan to escort me and Agent Keen in 15 minutes.
Ressler: Escort you where?
Ross: That’s the fun part. You’ll have to wait to find out.
Red: You need to breach that room, right now.
Cooper: HRT is trying to make contact with Keen’s cell as we speak. …
Red: He’s not gonna make contact. He’s not interested in negotiating.
Cooper: What do you suggest we do?
Red: Cut the power, blow the door, stun grenades followed by CS gas, and extract.
Ressler: How can you be sure that he doesn’t kill Keen before we get to him?
Cooper: You can’t. It’s a calculated risk.

Ressler: [ On phone ] Guys, I got something. Man down. Side arm and security badge are missing.
Cooper: So, Ross is now armed?
Ressler: Last name’s Schay.
Aram: All right, Schay, Schay. Come on. Okay, Schay. Charlie, interim security. His badge was swiped two minutes ago at door 32C.
Cooper: South wing, first floor.
Ressler: On my way.

Ross: Move! Move!
[ Ross and Liz come to a door with a keypad and can’t card out ]
Cooper: [ Over intercom ] That’s far enough. That badge belongs to an employee with interim security.
You need a passcode to get out.
Ross: Then give me one.
[ Red clicks the phone off; they can still see and hear Ross and Liz over surveillance ]
Red: You can’t do that.
Ross: You don’t think I’ll shoot her? Give me a code! …
Liz: Don’t listen to him. He’s bluffing.
Red: She’s right. He’s bluffing.
Cooper: Maybe, but if you’re wrong, Keen is
dead. [ Beep; phone on ] I’m not going to open that door. I have
men on their way to you right now. Stand down.
Ross: Three –
Red: I’m not wrong. He’s bluffing.
Cooper: You don’t know that!
Ross: Two –
Red: Harold, if you give him that code, it’s unlikely you’ll ever see Agent Keen again.
Ross: One!
Aram: 83-724. That’s the code. 83-724. That’s the code. …
[ Red shakes his head in disgust and turns away ]

Aram: Look, I’m sorry. He was going to shoot her.
Cooper: Agent Mojtabai is not the reason she’s in danger. [ To Red: ] You are. You’re the only reason she’s ever been in danger.
If you’re as interested in her safety as you profess, the best thing you can do is stay away from her.
[ Dembe’s cellphone vibrating; he hands it to Red ]
Dembe: Agent Keen.
Cooper: On speaker.
Red: Yeah. Elizabeth?
Sutton Ross: Your life for hers.
Red: Done.
Ross: There’s a pay phone at Third and Summit. … Be there in an hour to receive instructions. Come alone. …

Cooper: You’re not going alone.
Red: That’s exactly what I’m going to do, Harold. …
Cooper: We’re not letting you out of our sight.
Red: Now who’s putting her life in danger?

Ressler: Heads up, people. Here we go. … Hey, Aram?
Aram: I’m up on the phone. As soon as I get a hard trace, I’ll call it in. [ Beeps ]
[ Phone rings ]
Dembe: Top 10 is on the move.
[ Red walks past the pay phone and takes a paper bag out of a waste receptacle ]
[ Cellphone beeps ]
Red: Yeah?
Ross: Mr. Reddington, is that a tail I see watching you?
Ressler: Hey, Aram, you getting this?
Aram: I’ve got the pay phone tapped, not the burner. I have no way to access that line.
Red: You knew I couldn’t get here without the feds keeping a close watch. They’re rather protective of Agent Keen. But if you’re half as
smart as you think you are, I’m sure you have a plan as to how we can lose them.
[ Red tosses the burner phone and enters a building ]
Ressler: Where the hell’s he going?
Aram: Okay, pulling CCTV feeds now.
Dembe: Raymond is letting them take him.
Aram: What do you mean “letting”?
Dembe: For Elizabeth. …
[ Dembe gets out of his vehicle and goes on foot ]
Ressler: Dembe, what are you doing? …
[ A gray van speeds by Dembe ] [ Tires screech, brakes squeal ]
Dembe: The van … the gray liquor van, the one that left through the street side. It’s how Raymond was taken. …

Liz: This is my fault.
Red: No.
Liz: I should’ve just let it go.
Red: Doesn’t matter.
Liz: Mr Kaplan, Tom – We all should’ve just left it alone.

They didn’t because they thought I deserved to know, but I don’t. [ Sighs ] Whatever this is, it’s yours. I should have respected that. The only reason we’re here is because I didn’t. [ Voice breaking ] And I’m so sorry.
Red: You have nothing to apologize for. Not to me, ever.
[ Sutton Ross enters ]
Red: My life for hers. That was the agreement. Let her go.
Ross: Take her in the back.
Liz: No, no, no. No, no, no, no! [ Sobbing ] Aah!
[ She’s taken away ]
Red: You don’t need to hurt her anymore.
Ross: Whether or not she suffers is entirely up to you. … [T]he quicker you tell me what I want to know, the less damage they will do to her. Let’s start with this DNA report. …

[ Red arrives at Dom’s place in the country. Dom opens the door ]
Liz: –Except it’s not a secret. Not to me. Because this time, I have a secret, too. I learned that from you, how to

Tom: And it worked?
Liz: Like a charm.
Tom: How’d you do it?
Liz: I told a few lies.
Tom: [ Chuckles ] God, I miss you. Well, go on. I’m dying to hear how you pulled this off.
Liz: I was with Ross. He told me.

  Ross: And that’s the truth. And I can prove it.
  Liz: [ Voice breaking ] But it can’t be.
  Ross: But it is. I have the bag, the bones, and
  the DNA report. Get me out of here, and I can
  show it to you.
  Liz: Okay. Here’s what I need you to do.

  Liz: Ressler!
  Ressler: All teams, we have a level-four
  breach. East interrogation. We need
  emergency assistance now.

Liz: After that, I made a few demands to buy us enough time to get out.

  Liz: [ To Ross ] Aram will have those feeds

  Liz: [ Acting ] Don’t listen to him! If you

  Ross: Shut up!
  Ressler: The demands were a ruse. They’re in
  the plenum cavity.

Tom: So, once you were out, Ross took you to the bones?
Liz: Not just Ross. He had help.

  Ross: Garvey didn’t reach out to me because
  I hate Reddington. He did it because he
  wanted me to help me get the truth to the
  person he cares about most.
  [ Jennifer enters with the duffel bag ]
  Liz: You. Of course it’s you.
  Ross: Garvey gave me the bag in Costa Rica,
  so I could get it to your sister.
  Jennifer: Did he tell you?
  Liz: Yes. He said there’s proof.
  [ Jennifer unzips the bag, takes out the DNA
  report and gives it to Liz, who reads it ]

Tom: Yeah, the DNA test. It was in the bag. I saw it.
Liz: Yes.

  Jennifer: You and I can get to the truth, but if
  this is going to work, we need to gain
  Reddington’s trust.
  Liz: I can help with that.

  Ross: Your life for hers.
  Red: Done.
  Ross: There’s a pay phone at Third and
  Summit. Be there in an hour to receive

  Red: I want to talk to her.

  [ Ross slugs Liz’s face ]
  Liz: Again.
  Ross: That’s enough.
  Liz: If you’re gonna tell him you hurt me, he’s
  got to believe you. Again.
  [ Ross slugs her again ]

Tom: You knew Reddington would come for you – anything for you.

  Red: Let her go.
  Ross: Take her in the back.
  Liz: [ Acting ] No, no, no. No, no, no, no!
  [SOBBING] Aah!

  [ Liz: (Acting) Screams ]
  Ross: He’s not talking.

༺ ♤ ༻

Brief: As Dickens might have said, ‘Ian Garvey is dead as a door-mail.’ So is Red’s ex, Naomi Hyland. Red asked Lilly (Red’s daughter, born Jennifer, who now goes by the name Lillian May Roth) to take him to see Naomi. Lilly said she first had some questions for Red, particularly, why he abandoned her and her mother on Christmas Eve in 1990. Red replied that he had had to cut ties to keep his enemies away from them.

Red: In 1990, the KGB and the CIA had almost nothing in common except the mutual determination to hunt down one individual.
Lilly: You.
Red: Being a fugitive from American law enforcement is a lot easier than being a fugitive from the two most powerful nations on Earth. And anyone close to a target of theirs becomes a target themselves.

The reason both the KGB And CIA were hunting him, Red said, was that he had discovered The Cabal, the insidious international secret organization he had “stumbled across and tried to destroy. To prevent that, they tried to destroy me.”

After their discussion, Lilly took Red to see her mother – in a cemetery. Naomi was shot and killed leaving her apartment in 2017. Lilly asked Red to never contact her again. Red agreed.

Red had hoped Naomi might be able to help him locate the duffel bag containing a skeleton that he is desperately trying to locate before Liz does. At least half a dozen people have already died over this pursuit, including Tom, Liz’s husband. Red’s remaining lead is an associate of Ian Garvey’s, a young man named Judson, who has told Red that Garvey took the duffel bag on a flight to Costa Rica and came back without it. Red and Dembe were about to fly in Red’s jet to Costa Rica when Liz showed up. She quickly surmised the reason behind the planned trip. But she also has an urgent reason for intervening – Samar has been abducted and Red’s help is deemed critical to locating her.


[ Samar wakes up and takes in her surroundings. She’s in Lawrence Devlin’s van, her wrists tied. A metal grating separates the front of the van from the back. She manages to sit up ]
[Rats squeaking ] [ Devlin is puttering in his “lab,” which is populated with rats, snakes and large bugs in cages. He moves rats from one cage to another. He then unwraps a human hand and blows it with a hair dryer ]
[ Devlin comes out of the building with a cage of
rats. He opens the front side door of the van and puts the cage on the passenger seat. He puts the hand inside the cage ]
Samar: Where are we?
Devlin: [ Startled ] Oh! Oh, you– [ Chuckling ] You’re awake. You startled me.
Samar: The girl from the hospital, where is she?
Devlin: Yeah. Mm. [ Inhales ]The taking of a life, I’ve only done it a few times, and I take no pleasure in it. Once you’re gone, we’ll make it right. Send you back to the earth – the way God intended.

༺ ♤ ༻

[ The Post Office ] [ Nicholas T Moore, the cult leader, is now in custody and is being interrogated by Cooper. Cooper shows Moore images of Devlin from a surveillance camera ]
Cooper: I want a name.
Moore: I don’t know who that is. …
Vera: All I know is that he was under contract. I don’t know his name. … He cleaned up messes.
Liz: You mean people? …
Cooper: [ To Moore ] How’s it work? Someone stumbles upon your little utopia, becomes a threat, and what – this man kills them? Gets rid of them?
Vera: [ To Liz ] The man in the photo simply made sure that the bodies never turned up. …
Moore: What if I could remember this
man’s name and help you find your missing agent? … trade my life for hers. All you have to do is let me go – you get her back.
Cooper: Yeah. That’s not gonna happen.


༺ ♤ ༻

[ Cooper’s office ] [ Red is looking at the surveillance photos ]
Cooper: Do you know his name?
Red: I don’t, but I can get your prisoner to give it to me.
Cooper: By torturing him?
Red: In my experience, conventional torture doesn’t yield much truth. Which is why I employ a man with a more holistic approach to enhanced interrogation. … What else do you know about her abductor?
Ressler: He’s not part of the New Haven cult.
Whoever he is, he was contracted. …
Cooper: Have the FBI Financial Fraud Unit locate Moore’s accounts. …
Aram: We do not have time. That man in our interrogation room – he knows something, and we need to get him to talk [ Inhales deeply ] like, now. …
Red: Take advantage of my offer, Harold. Brimley’s an old friend, and I love him dearly. … If it weren’t Samar, I
wouldn’t offer his services.
[ Red leaves ]
Aram: Sir. Let me talk to him. L-Let me see if I can get him to budge.
Cooper: What can you possibly say to him that we haven’t?
Aram: I don’t know, but, please, just give me two minutes with the man behind Samar’s abduction. That’s all I ask.

Red: [ On the phone ] Slow down, Smokey. Take a breath.
Smokey: I tracked down the address where Garvey went after he landed in San Jose. It’s a custom boat
company, guarded six ways to Sunday. Supply trucks going in and out.
Red: Carrying what?
Smokey: Don’t know the what, but got the skinny on the why. … The owner runs some kind of monthly auction – some legit items, some black book. Apparently, he’s not particular. … [I]f Garvey came here with that bag of yours, it’s up for auction, too. …
Red: I want you to secure an invitation to the party. … Call me when it’s confirmed.
[ Cellphone beeps ]
Liz: I brought you here to help find Samar, not hunt for the duffel bag.
Red: I offered Harold my assistance. Now I’m just ~ juggling.

Aram: Mr Moore. I don’t know if you remember me. My name is Agent Aram Mojtabai.
Moore: I’ve been waiting for you. … You’re the one who begged for her life. You care about her a great deal, don’t you?
Aram: Yes.
[ Moore glances at the CCTV camera. Aram takes the hint and turns off the feed ]
Moore: There’s something in my personal effects. … Get it for me. I’ll tell you what I know.
༺ ♤ ༻
Devlin: You know, I was sort of thinking of, um, um, suffocating you. You know, it’s- it’s the most natural, just put you to sleep with my hand.
Samar: How thoughtful.
Devlin: Do you believe in God? You know, like, a protector, sort of a guardian angel?
Samar: Yes, I do.
Devlin: I don’t. Nature – that’s my God.

[ Aram opens a banker’s box containing Moore’s things. He takes out a New Testament ]
Samar: Well, I suppose we’ll have to agree to disagree. I have an angel.
Devlin: Don’t matter. Even if you believe He puts us here, it’s Nature that takes us away. The beasts and the bugs, the vultures and the nitrogen. …

༺ ♤ ༻
[ Aram has brought Moore a New Testament ]
Moore: Aren’t you curious?
Aram: Not even slightly. Agent Navabi – I need you to tell me what you know about the man who took her.
Moore: [ Sighs ] Over the years, people have stumbled
onto New Haven. … Steven is the man I contact to get rid of the remains.
Aram: Steven who? What- What is his last name?
Moore: Feltmeyer. … I don’t know his real name. … All I know is who I call if I need to hire Feltmeyer for a job.
༺ ♤ ༻
[ In Devlin’s van ] [ Rats squealing ]
Devlin: I’m sorry. They’re getting a little impatient. …
[ Samar has found some flares. She leverages one to break the plastic binding on her hands ]
Devlin: These are Himalayan Field Rats. They have 12 molars each, and their teeth just keep growing. Five
inches a year, if you can believe that. That’s why they need something substantial to chew on to, you know, wear down those teeth.
Samar: And that’s me today.
Devlin: Yeah, that’s you.
[ Samar sets off a flare. It produces 🔥 and smoke, filling the van. She sets off 🔥 another ]
Devlin: Damn it!

[ Tires screeching ] [ The van comes to a stop ]
[ Devlin gets out, cough- ing. He opens the back door of the van. Samar punches him ] [ ⚡️Scuffle⚡️ ] [ Samar run] Devlin: Stop! [ Devlin 💥💥 shoots 💥💥 ] …

Red: It is not a weasel. It’s a badger.
Brimley: She’s a digger. She’ll go after insects and grubs, but she really goes nuts for ground-nesting birds.
Cooper: Our prisoner is not a ground-nesting bird.
Brimley: He is to Bernice. …
Red: Believe me – 10 minutes with Bernice and Brimley, and your prisoner will give us the name of Samar’s abductor.
[ Aram appears ]
Aram: He already has.
Cooper: You got him to talk? How?
Aram: Uh, with all due respect, sir, all that matters now is that I did. Uh, turns out Moore, uh, goes through a third party to make contact – a guy by the name of Hannelore.
Julius Hannelore?
Cooper: Do you know him?
Red: He’s a broker of sorts. An associate recommended him to me after Mr Kaplan passed.
Liz: She did not “pass.” She killed herself so I could get the duffel bag. It was her dying wish. Feel free to
honor it.
Cooper: Can you reach out to your associate?
Red: I’m on my way.
Liz: I’m going with you in case you plan on “juggling.”
Red: … [L]et me set the record straight. My associates
are just that – mine. … [M]y meetings with them are private.
Cooper: Then Agent Keen will be outside the meeting so you can immediately relay any pertinent information.
Red: [ Scoffs ]
༺ ♤ ༻
Devlin: Stop! [ 💥💥 GUNSHOTS 💥💥 ]

[ Samar huddles beside a tree. She finds a thick stick and hides it in her sleeve ]
Devlin: Look, lady, there’s not much point in running. I told you I don’t like this, but I have a gun, and I will use it if you make me. I was nice to you, and you did this. Get up! Walk.

༺ ♤ ༻

[ A mortuary ] [ Julius Hannelore prepares a corpse ]
Red: Julius. How do you do it? How do you make a person more presentable in death than they were in life?
Julius: Family recipe. [ Laughs ] …
[ Julius slips a cotton ball under one of the corpse’s eyelids ]
Julius: Mm. Mr Sulzberger is an open casket. Viewing’s in an hour, so unless it’s urgent–
Red: I’m looking for Steven Feltmeyer. … This is a pressing matter. I don’t have time to go through channels. …
[ Julius trims a thread at the corner of the dead man’s
mouth ]
Julius: Everything in its time and mackerel in August.
[ Red pulls out his gun & points it at the corpse’s head ]
Red: I’m afraid I’m going to need my mackerel now, or
else the Sulzbergers are going to need to close the casket.
Julius: You wouldn’t.
Red: I’d sooner take a knife to the “Mona Lisa,” but Feltmeyer has an associate of mine, and I’d like her back. Preferably before she needs her lips sewn shut.

Liz: Feltmeyer’s real name is Lawrence Devlin. …
Red: Good luck with that. Where can we drop you?
Liz: Wait. You’re leaving? We still don’t have Samar.
Red: If there was more I could contribute, I would do it gladly, but there isn’t. So, yes, I’m leaving. …

Devlin: Okay, here’s what we’re gonna do. We’re gonna take you to the farm, … I’m gonna make one real clean incision in your lower lumbar vertebra. And I’m gonna sever your spinal cord to immobilize you. And then, we’re gonna let the rats have their way. … Get in!
[Samar turns and shoves the stick deep into Devlin’s thorax ]

[ The Post Office ]
Liz: According to Reddington’s source, Feltmeyer’s real name is Lawrence Dane Devlin.
Devlin is a fixer who specializes in making problems go away. … He considers himself a thanatologist.
Cooper: I don’t know what that is.

Aram: It’s the scientific discipline devoted to the study of death and decay.
Liz: As recently as 2005, Devlin held a research position at the University of Tennessee’s body farm – until … several of the cadavers Devlin requisitioned turned out to have missing limbs and other body parts. … And since that time, Devlin’s been in the body disposal business. …
Aram: And this guy has Samar.

Samar: It’s getting harder for you to breathe because your lungs are slowly up filling with blood. … But on the bright side, it’s an entirely natural way to go, likely what God intended for you.

Samar: Hey. Hey, pull over – You can’t drive. Hey, pull over.

Red: Ah, Mercury Dime. Or more accurately, Wingéd Liberty. Here’s a fun fact – the image was modeled on Elsie

And, nothing himself, beholds

Brief: Red made a deal with opium supplier Zarak Mosadek to have him cut his cartel’s supply to Ian Garvey’s Nash Syndicate unless Garvey gave Red the duffel bag containing a skeleton that Red is trying to keep from Liz. But Mosadek double-crossed Red, instructing Garvey to instead kill Red when he turned up to get the duffel bag. The FBI found out about the plot via a bug that Liz planted on Lilly (or Jennifer, Red’s other daughter and half-sister). Lilly confronted Garvey with the information about Garvey’s crimes that Liz had told her about and challenged him to deny them. She had known Garvey only as a “good man” who had saved her from Red and gotten her into witness protection. Ever since the Christmas Even when Red disappeared (12/24/1990), Garvey had acted as a surrogate father to Lilly. Garvey denied the crimes Liz told Lilly about (his drug connections and murdering Tom), but told her he planned to rid the world of Raymond Reddington at a meeting planned for the next day.

The FBI told Red about the double-cross and Red then pulled off a double-double-cross by turning his associate Tony Pagliaro into an exact replicate of Garvey (using the skills of Raleigh Sinclair, who can put a person in two places at once). The fake Garvey showed up to the meetup between Red and Mosadek and killed Mosadek. Law enforcement ID’d the killer to the public as Garvey. Meanwhile, Red and Dembe had captured the real Garvey, but he caused a car crash and escaped, and headed to Pete’s Tavern, to get help fleeing law enforcement from Lilly. Liz headed there, too, and was arresting Garvey but he forestalled her saying he could tell her the story of what was in the duffel bag. That’s when Red – using location info Aram provided from the bug – showed up and threatened to kill Garvey if he uttered even “one article” about the duffel bag. Liz then turned her gun on Red, insisting Garvey tell the story. Lilly got in-between Red and Garvey, begging Red to spare Garvey and telling Red she was Jennifer, his long-lost daughter. Red, though stunned, told Dembe to remove Jennifer from the line of fire. But Garvey pulled his gun and shot, hitting Red and wounding him. Liz then shot Garvey three times in the chest, wounds that appear to be fatal.

Aram: Not saying it’s gonna be okay.

Lilly: So, you’re saying you were framed?
Red: I’m saying a perfectly plausible narrative was created.
Lilly: By some shadow government called the Cabal.
Red: Secret societies exist. The Cabal, the Trilateral Commission – private organizations that harness powerful forces to tip the scales in their favor – military
engagements, UN interventions, treaties. The Cabal is the one I stumbled across – and tried to destroy. To prevent that, they tried to destroy me.
Lilly: How does [that] explain why you abandoned us?
Red: You weren’t abandoned. You were protected.
Lilly: Yes. So, you forget my ground rules, which is I take you to Naomi in exchange for honest answers.
Red: In 1990, the KGB and the CIA had almost nothing in common except the mutual determination to hunt down one individual.
Lilly: You.
Red: Being a fugitive from American law enforcement is a lot easier than being a fugitive from the two most powerful nations on Earth. And anyone close to a target of theirs becomes a target themselves.
Lilly: Family.
Red: Especially family. Unless they’re abandoned on the side of a road on Christmas Eve.
Lilly: After you left, we went into Witness
Red: Put where the Cabal wouldn’t find you.
Lilly: Or my father.
Red: An effective, albeit excruciatingly painful solution.
Lilly: Effective?
Red: You survived, as did your mother, to whom I hope you are now willing to take me.

Episode 5:19 Ian Garvey Pt 2 🎯 EW recap ¤ 🌅 Photo Gallery ¤ 📒 Script


༺ ♤ ༻

Brief: Red has succeeded in earning the gratitude of Ian Garvey’s opium supplier, Zarak Mosadek, by rescuing his son from the Taliban, a Paris operation he accomplished with help from the FBI. Cooper approved the operation over the objection of Cynthia Panabaker of the CIA which had recently cut ties to Mosadek as an informant. In gratitude to Red, Mosadek will meet with Ian Garvey in the U.S. to give him the bad news that his opium supply is at risk – the source of Garvey’s power within the Nash Drug Syndicate. Red plans to use his leverage to retrieve from Garvey the duffel bag full of bones whose identity Red wants to keep a secret from Liz and the world. He has also vowed to Garvey that he will kill him once he gets the bones back.

In Red’s absense, Liz has worked with Aram to track Garvey, who killed both Tom and the detective investigating Tom’s murder, Norman Singleton. She and Aram followed Garvey 50 miles to Baltimore where they saw Garvey embrace a woman on the sidewalk in front of a bar, Pete’s Tavern. Aram identified the woman as Lillian May Roth, 35 years old, an employee of the bar. Later, Liz confronted Lillian and compelled her to come to her apartment and demanded information on Garvey. Lillian explained that Garvey was a surrogate father to her and got her into witness protection years ago to protect her from her real father, a career criminal on the FBI’s Most Wanted List – Raymond Reddington! She is Red’s daughter Jennifer by Carla (aka Naomi Hyland). Liz confided to Lillian that she herself is the daughter of Raymond Reddington.

Mosadek: Ian Garvey is– How do you Americans say it? A dead man walking? I cut him off. He no longer represents my interests in your country.
Red: I trust he knows why and what he must do to regain your patronage?
Mosadek: Yes. He was not happy about it. … Garvey has made a lot of money distributing my product, protecting my supply lines. …
Red: Then he’ll bring me what I need, and your debt will be paid.
Mosadek: As the gospels say, “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto Reddington the things that are Reddington’s.” …
Red: I’ll contact you with a time and place. …

༺ ♤ ༻
[ Mosadek makes a call ]
Mosadek: Reddington knows too much. About both of us.
Garvey: He believed your story?
Mosadek: Of course. He lives in a world where people do what he tells them. So he expects me to bring him the bag. And when you do, I expect you to kill him. …
༺ ♤ ༻
Liz: I have a daughter.
Lilly: I want to go home.
Liz: Her name is Agnes. She’s living with her grandmother until it’s safe for her to come back. … It won’t be safe until Ian Garvey is in prison. I needed you to hear that Ian Garvey killed my husband.
Lilly: [ Scoffs ]
Liz: Right here! Right where I’m standing now. …
Lilly: Ian is my surrogate father. He taught me to drive. He
showed up to my graduation. He was there after my real father abandoned me. And you want me to help you arrest him.
Liz: I do. … I wish we could just forget all of this and get to know one another.
Lilly: I think we both know it’s a little late for that. …
༺ ♤ ༻

Red: This apartment. Right here. Oh. My God. To have been the proverbial fly on Clyde Tolson’s duvet.
Liz: Clyde Tolson lived here? J. Edgar Hoover’s lover?
Red: This was their secret hideaway. Imagine the conversations. Cooing over JFK’s lovers. Slandering Dr. King. … When I saw the apartment was for sale, I couldn’t resist.
Liz: You own the apartment where the homophobic head of the FBI carried on his affair with his boyfriend?
Red: Allegedly. I wouldn’t admit this in mixed company, but J. Edgar and I have a surprising amount in common. … [W]e both always get our man. He got Tolson. I got Garvey. Or I will, by this time tomorrow.
Liz: Is this why you wanted to see me?
Red: Mosadek has ordered Garvey to bring me the duffel bag. Garvey thinks he’s going to give it to me and walk away. I wanted you here to tell you I’ve made other arrangements.
Liz: To get your man and the bag.
Red: To get our man and keep my privacy.
Liz: Hoover believed knowledge is power. He used his to hurt a lot of good people. You’re using yours to hurt me.
Red: That is ridiculous.
Liz: Tom died for a reason. You know why, and you won’t tell me!
Red: I won’t tell you something that’s none of your business. It was none of Tom’s business. You may feel entitled to know what it is because he died trying to figure out what it was, but you’re not. … Be hurt. Blame me. Howl at the moon for all I care. But this is my problem, not yours.
༺ ♤ ༻
Garvey: Hey. What’s the matter?
Lilly: Are you like him?
Garvey: Like who?
Lilly: Reddington. Are you like him?
Garvey: You know the answer to that.
Lilly: I know about the Nash Syndicate, about Zarak Mosadek.
Garvey: Whatever you’ve been told, there’s an explanation for all of that.
Lilly: You saved me. You protected me. …
Garvey: You don’t need to be protected from him anymore. Not after tomorrow.
Lilly: Are you gonna kill him? Like you killed Tom Keen?
Garvey: So that’s who you’ve been talking to? Agent Keen?
Lilly: Are you gonna kill Reddington? …
༺ ♤ ༻

Cooper: Here he is. Agent Mojtabai said he recorded a conversation Ian Garvey had with a source of yours. …
Liz: We tracked Garvey to an out-of-the-way bar where he goes to see a woman. … I asked Aram for a bug, which I placed on her jacket. …
Aram: Okay, so, I cued it up to the end. … We got to do something about it, like, now. Here we go.

Lilly: Are you gonna kill Reddington?
Garvey: A meeting’s been set. Reddington thinks I’m coming to give him something he wants. I have other plans.
Lilly: Meaning what?
Garvey: Meaning I’m about to do the world a big favor.


༺ ♤ ༻

Liz: [ On phone ] It’s a trap – your meeting with Garvey. If you show up, you’ll be killed.
Red: How convenient. … You gathering intel that indicates I shouldn’t go to a meeting you don’t want me to attend. … Where’d you get your information?
Liz: I can’t tell you.
Red: Then, no, I’m not listening. [ Slaps phone shut ] …
Dembe: Elizabeth wouldn’t lie about something like this. If she says it’s dangerous for you to go, I believe her.
Red: So do I. But I’m still going. …

Sinclair: You want me to create a double for you so that you can attend a meeting in which you anticipate being assassinated?
Red: Yes.
Sinclair: Perhaps a better idea might be to skip the meeting.
Red:[ Laughs ] Perhaps! However, I’m afraid the meeting is unavoidable.
Sinclair: But I- I’m not in the business of helping people skirt
murder. I’m- I’m in the business of providing alibis.
Red: A trick that allows a man to be in two places at once – an illusion I believe will come in handy, given the circumstances.
Sinclair: Yes, but it’s- it’s- it- it’s an illusion achieved by the most painstaking processes. It can take months …
Red: You have 16 hours. …
༺ ♤ ༻
Cooper: Absolutely not. We’re not putting you in a situation like that. It’s too dangerous.
Red: I must say, Harold, I’m flattered by your concern, but I’ve spent a good part of my life in situations very much like that. …
Cooper: Don’t flatter yourself. And don’t
believe for one minute that we can protect you from Ian Garvey. …
Samar: What’s this really about?
Red: This is about justice for the man who murdered Agent Keen’s husband – a dangerous and dirty cop who … runs the ground troops for an international drug syndicate…. And along with Garvey, if you’re lucky, you might even capture Zarak Mosadek ….
Ressler: You let Mosadek go, and now he’s double-crossing you.
Red: … You just have to catch him in the act of killing me, not after he already has.
Cooper: If I sign off on this, you’re walking in there at your own risk.
Red: I feel confident.
Liz: And why is that?
Red: God doesn’t want me, and the devil isn’t finished. The meeting is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. tomorrow. Do get a good night’s sleep. I’ll need you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at the ass-crack of dawn.
༺ ♤ ༻

Raleigh Sinclair: … I think I may have found a way for you to attend the meeting without being killed.
Red: Well, that’s a start! …
Sinclair: … [F]irst off, we’re going to need a very credible double.
Red: Anthony!
Tony Pagliaro: Mr Reddington!
Sinclair gleefully narrates over the preparations for the creation of an doppelganger.
Sinclair: This man is just the framework upon which we will build. It will be critical that I have the right wardrobe. … And I’ll need a list of theatrical supplies. … Supplies are not as important as the craft. I can teach almost anyone anything, given enough time. But for our purposes, our double will have to learn quickly. …
༺ ♤ ༻

Red: We’re here. Garvey and Mosadek’s men will likely take up positions here and here. The feds will hang back. …
Sinclair: … [G]etting out of here is going to be nearly impossible. Nearly. This extraction will require two specific vehicles a box truck and a sedan, which you will arrive in. …

Red: [ CHUCKLES ] Raleigh, are those new spectacles, or is that a twinkle in your eye?
Sinclair: I am the first to admit that a carefully planned job, uh, gives me great comfort. But this sort of winging it, it has, uh, an exciting flair to it!
Red: [ Laughs ] That’s the spirit. Let’s have a little fun. But, please, do your very best to make sure Tony’s not killed in the process.
