Gone Tomorrow (2015) Script

(CAR ENGINE STARTING)

(MAN SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY)

MAN 2: Have you heard the tale of the scorpion and the fox?

Once there was a scorpion poised on the edge of the river bank.

He happened across a fox, and was eager to enlist the creature's aid.

The fox, of course, refused him.

Only a fool would leave themselves so vulnerable.

"But if I should sting you," the scorpion replied, "I would surely doom us both." trusting in the scorpion's self-interest, the fox agreed. If you want me to, fine.

MAN: They were no way than half way across the river, when the first sting came.

I reflect often on this story, questioning not the judgment of the fox, but of the scorpion.

Surely it recognized its own nature.

Surely it foresaw its own doom.

Humanity is the only thing that's possessed of the same fatal flaw.

We, like the scorpion, are helpless to deny our nature, even if it kills us.

I don't know how you listen to that shit.

God loves us, but the devil takes an interest.


You don't have to do this.

We're lucky they gave us a chance to track her down.

If we don't end this, they end us.

(DISTANT BABY CRYING)

(WOMAN SOBBING)

(CRYING)

(BIRD CHITTERING)

(WOMAN CRYING)

Oh, my god, please.

Give me a minute.

WOMAN: Please, I'll get you your money, I swear to god.

I'll get you your money.

I swear to god... Shh.

(MAN SOBBING)

(WOMAN WAILING)

Let me go.

Close your eyes.

Please!

Close your eyes!

(GUNSHOT)


WOMAN: (ON INTERCOM) Dr. Fritz, telephone, please.

Dr. fritz, telephone.

MAN: They don't know if she's gonna make it.

Some farmer found her in the middle of the highway beaten half to death.

Rape test came back positive.

No sperm sample.

I don't wanna hear about jurisdiction.

Riley and I are taking it.

We're here, we're on it.

Thanks for the text. Yeah, pretty sure it's her, you know, but I can't be certain.

No id.

Well, let's look.

Shit.

I take it that's her?

Yeah.

Who is she?

Uh, a friend.

How bad is it?

Collapsed lung, seven broken ribs, broken orbital bones, three dislocated fingers, severe blood loss.

I made copies for you.

Oh, great. Thanks.

Here, take that.

No, no. You sure?

Not for this one, man.

I hope you catch the guy.

Not my job anymore.

Thanks.

Hey, we need to talk.

I'm coming over.


Where is she?

Finn, when you called... Hey, Brian...

just tell me where she is.

The hospital.

She's in surgery.

A farmer found her out on one of the old logging boats.

She crawled out there after...

After what?

She was raped and dumped there.

I gotta get to the hospital.

Frank was at the hospital.

He's gonna handle this himself.

Iron man, huh?

Surprised he didn't try to take a swing at you when he saw you.

I kept my head down just in case.

You heard from mason, no?

He's out?

Yeah, a couple weeks ago.

Wow, five years flies by fast, doesn't it?

Yeah.

I gotta do some more digging.

(FOOT THUMPS)

(KNOCKING AT DOOR)

(KNOCKING CONTINUES)

Frank. Long time.

Yeah, uh, I've got some bad news, Finn.

MAN: So, Ashlyn didn't contact you during the pregnancy?

You never saw the baby.

All right, sit tight. We'll get you outta here.

Find anything? Nothing.

No birth certificate, no social security number.

Legally this baby doesn't exist.

Well, that makes things a little more difficult, doesn't it?

There's still residual bruising from the rape, so preliminary tests came back inconclusive.

Seems like we will be able to confirm that pregnancy soon, though.

Tests will prove she was pregnant, but not that a child was born or abducted.

But baby or not, someone raped that girl.

And left her to die.

Keep digging.


Shift change in 10.

Doc will buy us a five minute window.

You ever use this stuff before?

No. It's supposed to be quick and quiet.

Inject her and walk out.

He also mentioned there were no gunshots wounds on arrival.

I missed.

I missed once, too.

Girl.

Almost got me killed.

She was just tougher than I thought.

Well, maybe you're not as tough as you thought.


That girl, the one you missed.

What happened to her?

I'll handle this one.


Shift change.

In and out.


MAN: Hey.

Can I help you?

You got a light?

(THUNDER ROLLING)

Nice chain.

No loose ends in a circle.

Except for the one upstairs.

(GRUNTS)

(GROANING)

(TRIGGER COCKS)

Who the hell are you?

Answer me!

He's an asshole, who's always picking fights he can't win.

Now I see this goes down one of two ways.

We start shooting each other, and you guys take off and settle this some other time.

Mason, let him go.

(MAN GRUNTING, COUGHING)

I'll see you soon.

We gotta get outta here now.

That guy tried to kill my sister.

This isn't the place he answers for it.

State PD's sending a protective detail for ash.

You could have just let him shoot me.

I thought about it.

MAN: (ON PHONE) it's done.

And?

MAN: (ON PHONE) she's dead. The way you wanted it.

Consider your message sent.

There was no message.

There was cause, and then there was consequence.

She ran.

Violation was her punishment.

You let her escape.

Raping her, that was your punishment.

There will be no more blunders.

Please don't make a mistake of thinking only a woman can be violated.


We need to do something.

MAN: You think?

Cause we just lied to the wrong man.

We got the baby back.

We still have time to clean this up before he gets here.

She's gonna wake up.

It's not her I'm worried about.

I'll make the call.

Was it worth it?

Nothing's worth it.


MAN: How did it go?

They let me see her, just for a minute.

Jesus. What else did they mention?

What the fuck, mason, what happened to you?

We'll get to that.

I read her file.

Tell me about the pregnancy.

So you knew?

Hey, wait. Ashlyn was pregnant?

Why didn't you tell me that?

There was nothing to tell you.

Come on, Brian, you know Ashlyn as well as we do.

She was here today, gone tomorrow.

Stop!

Stop ducking and answer the question.

Why didn't you tell him?

Look, I hadn't seen her in six months.

Not a phone call, no messages.

And then she just shows up on my door a week ago.

Says she left cause she was pregnant and she needs my help hiding the baby from the father.

And then she just left and said that she left the baby with a friend.

I tried calling her, tried finding her, I came up with nothing.

That's when I called him.

If Ashlyn's telling the truth, then her baby's still out there.

We gotta take this to the police.

I already tried.

They need more evidence.

Ashlyn's not awake to confirm it.

I haven't even seen the baby.

Then we need to find her.

What do you think I've been doing for the past week?

Keeping secrets.

I went to the hospital to see Ashlyn.

There were two guys waiting in the parking lot.

One of them was wearing a pendant.

I think it bruised her skin.

And you let him go? I was protecting my sister...

just like I've protected you.

I didn't ask you to.

We've had our best lead disappear.

That only leaves us with one choice.

There's one person Ashlyn would have trusted with her baby.

She didn't visit you for a reason.

Just don't tell her I'll be there.

(SIGHS)

Hey, harmony, it's Brian.


Mind if I join you?

Mason.

I...

I don't know why Brian would do this.

He told me that ash... She is.

She is.

That's why I'm here.

He's a lucky guy.

So were you. I know.

I hadn't seen her in months.

Not a word.

And then she just showed up at my office one day with the baby.

Grace. Grace?

She asked me to take care of her for an hour while she went to see Finn.

Practically ran out the door before I could even answer.

Sounds like her.

She came back.

She asked for some cash. She needed a place to lie low, somewhere private.

Did she tell you anything more?

No, but she gave me this.

I don't know what pisses me off more, the fact that you threw away your entire life for Finn, or that he let you.

You know what a bastard my father was.

I did everything I could to shelter ash from him, but Finn...

I couldn't protect him.

And when he snapped and finally fought back...

I saw it coming and I couldn't do anything about it.

How could I not put his life ahead of mine after that?

It wasn't just your life to sacrifice.

There's mine, too.

I wish things had turned out differently... but Finn wouldn't have survived the time.

(SIGHS)

She asked me to look after that, in case.

She'd leave a name, too. Hargrove.

Maybe that's the father.

Thank you.

She was staying at the Westwood motel, room 20.

If you find this hargrove guy, let the cops handle it.

You're no good to anyone in jail.

Is this a bad time?

Broad daylight, a dozen witnesses, you tell me.

You know what they say about desperate times.


(TRIGGER COCKS)

For my protection, please. I just wanna talk.

Who are you? I'm the low man on the totem pole.

Then you're wasting my time.

Trust me, you don't wanna meet the guys at the top.

So move on.

Not till I get my niece back.

See, this is why you have to listen to me.

That baby's gone, and there's nothing you can do to get her back.

You really expect me to walk away from this?

I expect you to see the big picture.

Your brother, your sister, your friend, they're all fair game now.

The people I work for, they don't take chances.

If they found out about this, they'd wipe everything off the table.

Who's hargrove?

If I were you, I'd forget I ever heard that name.

If I were you...

I'd run.

Run as far as you can and as fast as you can get there because if I ever see you again...

I will kill you.

Son of a bitch. What?

I stopped that guy from killing mason last night outside the hospital.

Barely.

How did he find you?

He did more than that.

They know all about us.

They?

Whoever he's working for.

We should follow him.

No, no, I'll do it.

Hey, I can do it.

Stay a few cars back, if he spots you, disappear.

Go home.

Okay, what about you two?

I know where ash was hiding.

Ride over there and check it out.


(DOOR CREAKING)


Check the top drawer.

There's something there.

She used to hide her stash in the same place.

Same handwriting.


It was only one word.

What was?

The message.

I hadn't heard from her since I went inside, and after all that time, all I get is one word.

Thursday.

Thursday?

Poker night for our dad.

It was our code word for trouble.

Win or lose... He'd come home swinging.

Yeah.

Did you ever tell her?

Tell her what?

That it wasn't you who killed him?

No.

What's on the drive?

Looks like a lot of pictures.

Hmm. What?

I think I recognize this girl.

About eight months ago, I was hired to find a runaway.

She had a history of it, but always came back.

I swear that's her.

Did you ever find her?

No.

I'm going to try the disk.

It's gotta be damaged.

Whatever was on it didn't fully transfer, but there's a unit at the office.

I can pull the rest of the information off there.

Mason... we got enough now to go to the police. No.

Someone raped my sister, and took her baby, and now they're trying to kill her.

We do this ourselves.


You here to kill me?

What do you think?

It doesn't matter what I think.

You made a promise to me.

You swore she wouldn't get hurt.

The situation evolved on us.

Yeah, I figured that when you had me cleaning her blood out of your fucking trunk.

Hey, you're not the only one who was forced to get his hands dirty.

It's not my fault that Ashlyn ran.

It's not my fault that my...

You both knew what you were signing up for.

You make it sound like I had a choice.

You did.

The living one or the dying one.

Hargrove will be gone in a couple of days, and...

Ashlyn won't be waking up.

You're gonna kill her?

I'm gonna stop them from saving her.

It's better this way, Finn.

You know the type of people we're sparing her from.

If they found out how far this got away from us, we'd all be dead.

So, this is mercy, huh?

You're saving my life by killing my sister.

She doesn't have a life anymore.

She lost it when she ran away with that baby, but you, you're insulated.

Only mike and I know about you.

But Ashlyn, she's a loose end and she has to be contained.

I gotta know, Finn, right here and right now, are you a friend or are you a loose end?

It'll be painless?

Painless.

Shouldn't have to live with what's she's done.

Good.

Just keep your brother busy for the next couple of days, and this will be behind us.

Sorry, Finn.

How do I know that no one knows I'm involved?

You trust me.

Keys.

(GUNSHOT)

(GUNSHOTS)


I need to make a call about these photos.

What is it?

There's something you should see.

Oh, Jesus.

What happened?

I tailed him into some dive bar.

He was meeting a guy there.

You followed him in the bar?

I wasn't gonna learn anything just sitting out in the car.

What happened with him?

I followed this guy out the back, and he was waiting there for me with a fucking gun.

There was a struggle.

The gun went off.

Looks like it went off more than once.

I made sure he wasn't getting up.

Finn, did anybody else see what happened?

(KNOCKING AT DOOR)

It's frank. What does he want?

Me. What?

I skipped parole.

You mean you're wanted?

(KNOCKING AT DOOR)

Second chance to arrest me.

I should have figured he'd jump on that.

BRIAN: Stall him.

MASON: Yeah, we need time.

Fuck.

Finn.

Detective Thompson.

Do you mind if we come in?

Of course, yeah, come on in.

Nice office.

It's a shithole.

I'm gonna check that disk out.

How long's that gonna take?

It shouldn't take too long, as long as it's not encrypted.

Here's a burner.

It's got some minutes left on it.

Get some rest. Lay low for a while.

I can think of a better way to spend my time.

(MUSIC PLAYING ON JUKEBOX)

(PHONE RINGING)


Frank.

Where's your new partner?

Babysitting Finn.

I hear she's good. Yeah.

Maybe better than you.

Have a seat.

Is he here? Who?

Give me a little credit.

Help me stop him.

Help me end this before it gets worse for everybody.

You know stopping was never his strong point.

Hmm.

Never yours, either.

Well, I guess, that makes us all a bunch of stubborn assholes.

We'd change if we could have, right?

Now look, we both know that mason is gonna kill or be killed by the man who raped his sister.

Now if you help me stop him, maybe we can keep that family from losing him for a second time, either to jail, or into a grave.

Now if you give a shit about any of that, you need to tell me right now where he is.

It's a burner. Best I can do for you.

You feel it, too, don't you, frank?

Feel what?

Something bad's coming.

Something bad's always coming.

Most people just choose to ignore it.

Here we are.

500 pound test. This oughta work.

(EMPLOYEE GRUNTS)

INTERCOM: The store will be closing in ten minutes.

Please bring your purchases to the checkout.

Is there anything else I can help you find today, sir?

Utility knives. Aisle nine.

You aren't planning to kill anybody, are you?

Not if he talks first.

(WOMAN SCREAMING)

No! (WAILING)

(WOMAN SCREAMING) ready?

(CRYING)

(SCREAMING)

Birth occurred naturally at 7:07 am.

The child is female. Six and a half pounds.

The post-birth procedure will now commence. (BABY CRYING)

NURSE: You did great, sweetie. Look.

ASHLYN: What is that?

Something for the pain, dear.

The birthing procedure complete.

Get her cleaned up and prep her passport.

(BABY CONTINUES CRYING)


I'm in a lot of trouble.

And I don't know what I'm gonna do.

Girls they keep at the hargrove, they don't get to leave.

They use 'em up and send them away, I don't know where.

Please help me.

I love you.


(DIALING PHONE)

Hey, it's Brian. Yeah, I need another favor.


(PHONE RINGING) (CHAIN RATTLING)

Mason, it's Brian, call me back as soon as you can.

(TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWING)

(PHONE RINGING)

FRANK: (ON PHONE) mason, you there?

Can't talk right now, frank.

Then you better listen.

You gotta give yourself up before this whole thing snowballs on you.

When I'm finished.

I understand how you feel. I really do.

But you gotta do this the right way.

Grace doesn't have time for the right way.

Do you remember what I told you that night you tried to help your brother?

You told me to let him go, to watch him rot in prison for finally standing up for himself.

I can't protect you from yourself, mason.

God knows I'm trying.

I'm not that kid you used to know, frank.

I'm not afraid to fight back anymore.

And I'm not gonna stand by while my sister's baby's still missing.

Do you remember what you told me before I went inside?

Yeah, I remember.

I told you never to back down, to be a threat, not a target.

Exactly.

Shit.


MAN: Oh, smells like shit.

MAN 2: When are they gonna get rid of the body?

Probably gonna wait for us to do it.


ASHLYN: I thought my tests weren't scheduled until tomorrow.

MAN: Dr. Mendoza asked to see you today instead.

He just want to make sure everything's on schedule.

The sooner you're out, the sooner you're paid, right?

MAN: (ON INTERCOM) Patient to delivery room.


(GASPING)

MASON: I've had a lot of time to think about this, what I was gonna say, what I was gonna do.

But I only got one question.

(BREATHING HEAVILY)

Where's grace?

Go fuck yourself.

(CHUCKLING)

(ELECTRICITY ZAPPING) (GRUNTING)

(PANTING)

You ever do time?

First thing you learn is how to read people.

Guards, other inmates.

One good look can tell you everything about a man... and I've taken a long look at you.

You've been hanging up here for about five minutes.

Headaches started yet?

That's the blood rushing to your head.

The pressure will start to burst the capillaries in your eyes.

Eventually you'll go blind.

Blood clots develop first, that'll trigger a stroke.

It won't kill you, but your brain will start to hemorrhage.

You'll fade in and out of consciousness, bleeding out until you're dead.

So you hold out as long as you want, mike, cause I knew who you were the second I saw you, and believe me, you're not as tough as you think you are.

Fuck you.

All right, say when.

(GROANING)

Fuck!

You can tough it out as long as you want, but it gets much, much worse. The longer you stay silent, the more permanent the damage.

So, tell me, where's grace?

She's alive.

She's alive.


(MONITOR BEEPING)

(MASON, YELLING) where is she?

MIKE: She's safe.

Independent logging factory outside of town.

That's where they keep them.

Who?

Keep who? The mothers!

19 girls all missing. That's what this is about.

MIKE: You have no idea.

(MIKE LAUGHING)

Who's the father? (MIKE LAUGHING)

Who knows?

They gave them sperm samples.

Tell me who "they" are.

MIKE: Diego.

He's our contact. Where do I find him?

You don't. He finds you.

(GROANING)


(GROANING)

Where do I find him?

I can't tell you what I don't know.

Just kill me.

I'm done talking.

Hey, buddy, I need you to call me as soon as you can.

Finn lied to us, man.

He lied about grace, he lied about Ashlyn, he lied about everything.

I'm gonna find him, try and get some answers.

But we gotta take this to the police right now.

It's way over our heads.

And I need you to please get out of town.

Don't come back till this thing burns out.

Just... just call me when you're safe, okay?


MIKE: You should know this, mason.

Tony tried to warn you.

I've been trying to keep you sheltered with your friends, your family, everyone, but you wouldn't listen.

You just wouldn't fucking listen.

(LAUGHING)

So, you better start battening down the hatches, man, cause they're coming for you.

What happens when they get here?

No loose ends in a circle.

(GRUNTING)


Guess that necklace is taking on a whole new meaning.

I was dead the moment she escaped.

It was just a matter of who found me first, them or you.

Now you'll have your answer.

Make it quick.

No.

Now you get to know what it feels like to be left to die.

(MIKE GASPS)

(MIKE WHIMPERING)

MIKE: No...

Mason!

Mason, let me down!

Mason!

(GRUNTING)

(SCREAMING)


It took you long enough.

It's a great place to bury your secrets, huh?

What's that supposed to mean?

The hargrove.

What do you want me to say, Brian?

Why don't you try starting with the truth?

The truth.

People are dying, Finn.

Mason's out there doing god knows what to find grace.

Your sister's in the hospital.

You wanna help me understand all this?

Understand what? That I was gonna lose everything?

I owe some serious money to people you don't wanna say no to.

I took the best deal they offered.

Do you have any idea what these guys are capable of?

Do you?

The money we got solved all our problems.

All we had to do was give them what they wanted.

Nine months, a baby.

Ashlyn agreed.

She's your sister! She loves you.

That's why she agreed to it, and you used that against her.

She ran, and that wasn't my fault.

It was the best we could have gotten.

A baby for our safety.

Her safety or yours?

You know they're gonna kill you now, right?

No, no, no. I can fix this.

You just have to trust me.

Trusting you is what got us here!


(VOICEMAIL) hey, buddy, I need you to call me as soon as you can.

Jim lied to us, and he lied about grace, and he lied about Ashlyn, he lied about everything.

Just... just call me when you're safe, okay?

Stand up and turn around, son.


POLICEMAN: Let's have a look.

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

What do we got?

Victim number one is Brian day.

The second victim is in the back of the car.

Id in the wallet confirms him as Tony Scutaro.

FRANK: That it?

One more thing.

The APB put out on missing Blake?

Apparently someone called in a report that a man matching his description visited a hardware store this morning.

Among his purchases were plastic wrap and rope.


Who are you supposed to be?

Your lawyer.

I don't think I can afford you.

Funny, my employer said much the same about you.

My name's Diego Alvarez.

I provide services for an organization that has a vested interest in you.

I don't think I'm gonna be much of a problem to them in here.

(LAUGHS) maybe.

It's your niece.

As you can see, she's a perfectly healthy little girl.

I want you to know I'm doing everything in my power to ensure she stays that way.

What do you want?

Actually, it's what you want.

You set out to find the men that harmed your sister, and in the process almost singlehandedly exposed this entire operation.

That's an impressive feat, considering how much you stand to lose.

I don't do well with threats.

I didn't come here to make threats.

I came here to make promises.

So, you have a decision to make.

If you refuse to desist, I will have Ashlyn flown overseas.

She will be addicted to heroin, and she will be whored out for a dollar in the poorest district I can find, there to live a long and terrible life of sexual slavery.

I will then have your brother convicted on any one of the numerous crimes he's committed over the last five years while working off his debt to us.

How did Finn get involved in this?

His shop served as a local outlet laundering money for this branch, the sentence for which can be as much as 20 years.

You've been to prison.

I trust you know his fate should this become reality.

And if I agree? Then nobody else needs to die.

I can't just leave that baby to be sold overseas.

Think of it as expensive adoption.

Only the elite can afford her services.

Grace will want for nothing, mason, ever.

They will love and care for her as if she was their own.

They will be able to provide a much better life than Ashlyn ever could.

I think we can both agree, you've already given up so much for your family.

Now they need you to give just a little more.

I trust you'll make the right decision.


Who was that guy?

His lawyer.

Open the door.


Get me a paramedic now!

(ALARM RINGING)

ASHLYN: Mason.

It's time to wake up, mason.

MASON: Ash.

I'm here.

All you done, again, ash.

I ruined everything.

No, you didn't.

Finn and I make our own decisions, and we live with them, but grace, she...

She's got no one, mason.

No one to help her.

No one to protect her.

No family, if you give up on her.

So you can't let her go, no matter what.

You're all she has.

You're her family.

No more running.

I love you.

It's time to wake up, mason.

Is he awake?

How long have I been out?

(SIGHS) a while.

Ashlyn. Can I see her?

Uh.

I need to see her one more time, just for a minute.

She's gone, son.

She didn't make it.

Passed away through the night.

I'm sorry.

It never should have happened.

I had to make it look real.

He threatened to kill them if I didn't.

And now Ashlyn's...

Yeah.

(SIGHING)

Put them on.

You sure about this?

Brian was.

He was sure enough to die for it.

All right. You wanna find those people, stop them.

Well, so do I.

I wanna help.

We're gonna have to make this look authentic.

You take the west wing stairs down to the parking lot and wait for me there.

I'll point our guys in the opposite direction, buy some time.

All right.

This is gonna hurt.

No shit.

MAN: (ON INTERCOM) Riley, come in.

Mason is gone.


(PHONE VIBRATES)

Mason. Hello, brother.

I thought you killed yourself.

Easier to escape a hospital bed than a holding cell.

Well, there's some serious people who want you dead.

So, if I was you, I'd stay that way.

You know I can't do that.

After everything, you still don't get it, do you?

Sometimes you lose and there's nothing you can do about it.

As long as I'm still breathing there's something I can do about it.

Where are you? I'm keeping my head down.

They're tearing up the town trying to look for me.

I'm gone, mason.

You need to give me something, Finn.

For once in your life, I need you to do something for someone else.

You owe it to grace.

You're the reason she's alive in the first place.

Don't be the reason she dies.

All right, we can meet.

MASON: When and where?

Two hours.

I'll message you.


You know, you do have options here.

You've seen enough. We'll get attention.

That won't solve the problem.

They'll just move it some place else.

Well, they say that living well is the best revenge.

I guess we'll have to settle for second best.

(SHIP WHISTLE BLOWING)

Put this on.

Mason.

Good luck.


(THUMPS) (MAN MOANS)

(MAN MOANS)


Hello, mason.

You got down.

I made sure someone knew where I'd be.

Now...

drop the gun.

(SCREAMS)

Kick it.

What happens now?

Your brother dies.

And you make me watch?

No.

No, mason...

I'm gonna make you do it.

I even brought your knife back.

He deserves it.

How do you think we knew about your little rendezvous at the cafe?

How do you think we knew about where to find Ashlyn?

He sold out your little sister and her baby.

Is that true?

He doesn't even deny it.

This is the piece of shit you went to prison for?

Mason, that's not the entire truth.

It... (GUNSHOT)

Your punishment is death.

As for your executioner, well... that's your punishment.

Go fuck yourself.

I thought you might say that, so I brought you an incentive.

Grace is here.

In that car.

And if you don't kill your brother, I'm gonna have one of my men walk in there and slit her fucking throat.

Jesus Christ, she's just a baby.

No, mason. She is property, ours to use or to waste, and right now I really don't care which.

Kill her.

Wait! Wait!

Diego promised Finn wouldn't be hurt.

He promised that Ashlyn would be safe.

Why should I believe that grace will be, too?

Diego is gone, mason.

As far as he's concerned, this place is wiped clean.

Except for grace.

That is the problem with hired guns.

The money can only buy you so much loyalty, well, but I bought theirs.

What happens when he hears about that?

Nothing.

Diego thinks I'm dead, something you should have stayed.

Now pick up the fucking knife.


Why did you do it, Finn?

Cause you went to jail for me, and I just wanted something to show for it when you got out.

Now do it.

Why do this?

Because the devil took an interest.

You have until the count of five.

Either you do it, or I will.

One.

Two.

Three.

Four.

Five.


Mason, no!

He deserves it.

You kill him, you kill any chance of an investigation.

We need what he knows.

Mason?

Think of the big picture.

We gotta stop 'em.

We gotta stop 'em.

Thank you.

Finn! What are you doing?

Surviving.

I need you to lower that weapon.

He goes down, I go down.

I had to.

MASON: Stop this, Finn.

You better know, I called this in.

Backup's gonna be here any minute.

Then let me go. No one has to know.

Oh, I made that mistake five years ago.

I'm not gonna make it again.

I'm not going to prison. So either you let me go, or you pull that trigger. Enough!

Finn, you can still do the right thing.

The right thing?

I killed our father, our sister.

I killed our best friend.

MASON: Brian?

I bashed in his head with a shovel.

He was a rapist piece of shit, but he was right about one thing.

I am a cancer that kills everything I touch.

You have to take that baby and get her far away from me.

I owe Ashlyn at least that.

He gave mason five seconds.

I'm giving you three, frank.

Don't do it, Finn.

Three.

Two.

One.

(GUNSHOT)


Oh, god.

FRANK: Mason, you gotta get going.

You gotta get grace outta here.

I'll see that he's taken care of.

You won't need that anymore.


Thank you.

(BABY WHIMPERING)


No, I... yes, of course.

They have every right to be displeased.

There were complications.

No, sir, the site was cleaned, all documentation destroyed.

The integrity of the sister sites is secure.

You have my word.
