Ressler: [ Sighs ] The Kremlin hates Kirk just as much as we do. I reached out to the DC Station Chief to take a look at their intel. Got a big fat nyet. Look, you want to revisit that dead end, be my guest. Maybe your, uh… methods will be a bit more persuasive.

🔴 Script 4:4 Gaia (№ 81)

Blurb: Liz has learned from Katarina’s journal that her mother had been “assigned” to Red by the KGB but instead had fallen in love with him. She also learned that the reason Kirk has searched for her is that he needs her to save him from a deadly form of hereditary anemia passed only from father to son. Now Agnes may provide him with what he needs.

Red: Nine times out of 10, the public reacts to an act of eco-terror by getting angry at the terrorist rather than the environmental offense he seeks to draw attention to. By disguising his sabotage in accidents, Gaia succeeds in focusing the public’s rage on the actual danger, not the criminal who exposes it.

[ Liz debriefs the task force ]
Liz: 2011, 10,000 gallons of MCHM, a toxic chemical used to wash coal, was leaked from the Fullerton Chemical Plant.… A few hundred people were poisoned, including two children and three elderly victims who later died. Environmentalists had warned of the danger of a spill for years, but no one listened until this leak, and then the EPA finally mandated changes.
Aram: So it worked. In Gaia’s mind, he protected people.
Ressler: Yeah, well, tell that to the parents who lost their kids.…

Ressler: What other guy? I just looked at the list of scheduled inspections, and there was only one in the month prior.

Liz: Six containers holding samples of every Class A infectious substance– Ebola, dengue, polio, HIV, and maybe 50 others.

Kirk: Well, I knew because I’m the better man. Always have been.
Red: I have what you want. And I know why you want it. So it’s true, then. After all these years, everything you feared has happened.
Kirk: It isn’t over yet.
Red: It doesn’t have to be. You can have your virus. All I want is Agnes in return.
Kirk: I don’t think so, old boy. I’ll die before you ever hold my granddaughter again.

[ Vision of Katarina writing in her journal ]
Today, the doctor confirmed our worst fears. Constantin is going to need blood transfusions to raise his blood count. He’s known his whole life this day might come, but still it’s– it’s terrifying. The only blessing is that this accursed disease that has afflicted his family for generations is passed from father to son and that Masha is safe.

img_1784[ Knock on door ]
Tom: I got it.
Liz: You lost him.
Red: Yeah.
Tom: And our best shot at finding Agnes.
Liz: I think I know why Kirk wanted that virus. I saw him getting a blood transfusion at Cape Breton. My mother wrote about his family’s history. Generations of Rostovs had the same disease– a rare blood disorder that’s been killing them for centuries.
Red: Kirk is dying. And the Ribowski virus is a temporary antidote to what afflicts him.
Tom: Ribowski virus? That’s what– Sample 17? Isn’t that a Class A toxin? How’s it gonna help him?
Red: He has aplastic anemia – a systemic failure to produce viable bone-marrow cells. It’s been a death sentence for generations of men in his family, except a distant uncle, who had contracted the Ribowski virus. After getting the virus, the uncle lived longer than any other Rostov with the blood disease.
img_1783Tom: So Kirk wanted the virus to re-create what happened to his uncle?
Red: Yes. It’s a simple math problem, really. Kirk’s disease prevents his body from producing enough blood cells. The Ribowski virus results in a rare form of leukemia which creates the opposite problem– too many blood cells.
Tom: So he’s gonna give himself leukemia? Isn’t that gonna kill him?
Red: Eventually. But by offsetting his blood disease, he buys himself a few more precious years.
Liz: No one could be that desperate.
Red: But he is that desperate, Elizabeth. Because he no longer has you. You wanted to know why he went so far to find you, why there seemed to be nothing he wouldn’t do to physically get hold of you. Now you know. He needs a biological descendant to save his life– a genetic donation from the woman he believes to be his long-lost daughter. That’s what you are to him– a collection of cells. This isn’t about saving you from me. This is about saving you for him.
Liz: Well, he doesn’t have me.
Tom: No. But he has Agnes.

Tom: Who’s Mato?
Kate: A finder. A tracker. Killer when necessary. We had a mutual friend. He gave Mato his start as a skip tracer. It was years ago.
Red: Little Nikos. West Texas’ favorite bail bondsman. An Amarillo institution for 25 years to life. Mato isn’t your garden-variety mercenary. From what I’m told, he’s an Indian– part Sioux, part I don’t know what, son of a Shaman. Mato could sneak up on a deer in a glade and smack it on the rump. He’ll find his way off the island.

Mato: Not just anyone can attend the Sun Dance.
Red: True, and you can’t get a table at The Fat Duck without a reservation. But I find in either case, a generous donation gets you in the teepee. I watched a tribal member, much like yourself, suspend himself from a cottonwood tree with flesh hooks through his chest.
img_1157img_1158Three hours he dangled, skin stretched like salt water taffy, while he left his body to communicate with the Great Spirit. Like you, the man on that tree didn’t fear death.

In the present time, Liz digs and finds the tin. She takes out her mother’s yarn bracelet and puts it on.]

Red: [ To Dembe ] Stay with the car.
[ Red and Kate walk into the woods ]
Red: There are places back here that have never borne a human footprint. 53,000 acres of virgin wilderness, all but one owned by the Bureau of Land Management. One acre, a jewel. A single buildable acre. Like a flawless diamond set in a sea of emeralds. The real estate equivalent of a unicorn. I acquired it some years ago from a family who had held it in trust for over a century and a half.
img_1181img_1179-e1475729876943Kate: Beautiful.
Red: Yes. [ He stops ] You understand, Kate, that I–
Kate: Have no choice? Isn’t that the speech, Raymond? That I know too much? Every single one of your weaknesses, all your faults, all your secrets. I dedicated my life to you. You entrusted me with everything you value– your freedom, your life, a child. I have never failed you. What you see as a betrayal of trust was actually a fulfillment of your wishes, to protect your interests. No more, no less.
Red: You presumed to decide what was best for me. Even if I resolve the anger, the pain you caused… I can’t trust you. Ever. I’m standing before a stranger. And yet, I know you believe what you did was best for Elizabeth, which is why I brought you here. You’ve told me you’ve always wanted a pristine, unspoiled place to live out your days in peace. So the acre is yours. For all eternity.

Red: I need to speak with the patient.
Doctor: He’s gone.
img_0325img_0305Red: As you well know, one of the keys to my success is a clear and consistent understanding of my own limitations. So often people overestimate themselves, misapply their gifts. The cleaner suddenly fancies herself the strategist. Wisdom is learning the boundaries of one’s designated lane. For instance, this, I will do poorly. Clumsily, with more mess than necessary. It’ll take longer and be considerably more unpleasant to boot. [ To Kate ] But I can’t very well have you do it, can I?

Samar: Apparently.
Aram: Wait, wait. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. How is that… there were complications during labor. And the doctor, he declared her dead.
Samar: He lied.
Aram: But there was a funeral. I-I was a pallbearer.
Samar: … It was a charade, Aram.
Aram: … She faked her death. Why would she do that?
Ressler: To get away from Reddington. So that her and Tom and Agnes could have a normal life.
⋘⋙
Cooper: I just got off the phone with the embassy in Havana. Briefed them on Kirk, gave them the tail number to his plane. If that was how he was planning to get off the island, that’s not gonna happen. … Notify FBI headquarters. Elizabeth Keen is alive.

Red: The head worked for a Joseph Balzan? I’ve never heard of him.
Manny Soto: Yeah, he’s a supplier of all manner of contraband on the island. If the people you’re looking for are still in Cuba, Balzan is protecting them.
Kate: Should I assemble a team?
Red: Dembe, call Silvio in San Cristobal. Tell him to put a team together. We’re going after Elizabeth.

[ Kirk offers Liz a glass of water; she refuses ]
Kirk: You think I’d drug you?
Liz: You kidnapped my infant daughter, my husband, and me. I’d say you’re capable of anything. img_0346img_0348Kirk: Listen… you were my entire life. You were all your mother and I ever cared about. Now you don’t know any of that because Reddington took you away from us when you were just a little girl. He and your mother had an affair. For a time, I thought maybe he was the father, but I have proof that he’s not. He’s just a spiteful, evil man. Couldn’t accept it when Katarina broke off the affair. One day I came home, and you were gone. He’d taken you. I never thought I’d ever see you again… until there you were in the news, you… and Reddington, – the most wanted fugitives in the world. … Everything I did was to get my child away from Reddington. Who understands that more than you? You did the exact same thing, faked your own death to get your child away from him. [Door opens ]
Balzan: [ Lowered voice, to Kirk ] We have a problem. The PNR have surrounded the plane.
Kirk: Then find another plane. [ To Liz ] Agnes will be here shortly.

Cooper: I understand. You feel played.
img_0362Aram: Don’t you, sir? …
Cooper: All right, let’s just have this conversation. Keen lied to us, took advantage of all of us, and no one is more upset about that than I. Or… relieved. Truth be told, I didn’t think it was possible to be this joyous and livid at the same time. But I have a job to do– find Keen and her family and bring them home safely. And I know that no matter how I feel, I can do that job. I need to know if each of you can say the same.

Kirk: What I desire is to raise my child, to watch her grow, and to have back the 26 years of being a father that you took from me. But you can’t give me that, can you?

Cooper: The Chilean Spymaster?
Samar: Who’s Esteban?
Red: Our next Blacklister.
img_0511Aram: Manuel Orentez Esteban. [ Gasps ] Leader of Pinochet’s Caravan of Death that institutionalized a state-sponsored system of terror through abuse, abduction, and murder.
Ressler: According to our database, he died in 1989.
Red: Except he didn’t. Esteban is alive and well and a legendary enforcer for a series of authoritarian regimes. … Kirk’s man in Cuba is protected by the military. If the military is involved, Esteban will know about it.
Cooper: … We have no assets in Cuba.
Red: [ Laughs ] Of course you do, Harold. Esteban. He works for your government. Castro took him in, and the CIA immediately put him on the payroll as a double agent. … The CIA knows where to find him, and he knows where to find Elizabeth.

Panabaker: [ Sighs ] I hate getting into bed with Reddington. I… hate needing him and his list. If you find Agent Keen, will he continue to give you names?

Panabaker: [ Sighs ] Good Lord. Is there anything that man doesn’t know?

Cooper: I appreciate you burning a source for this.
Panabaker: You knowing he exists is the least of Esteban’s problems. Now that we’re all chummy with the Cubanos, his relationship with the Agency is, uh, something of a liability.

Esteban: Why would I help you? You’re an anarchist.
Red: [ Laughs ] Probably. Maybe more of an opportunist. And I have the opportunity to help you. You spent a lifetime bouncing from one authoritarian regime to the next. But this is the last stop.
