03x12 - The Road to Hamelin

Another double episode: episode 12 is preceded by episode 11.

Previously on AMC's The Killing...

Ain't no trees in the city.

We had to go to the park.

He loved that dumb tree house.

Proceed, CO.

You know they hooked up, right? When they worked together.

He cut the left one.

Do you think it matters?

He'll find you. He'll find me if I stay.

Holder, I know who he is.

I heard what happened.

Just get out!

She was looking for you.

Reddick logged it.

I just wanted to make sure you were okay.

You weren't answering your phone.

Sorry, I just needed some time.

You did all you could for him.

How about you?

Are you okay?

Jen asked me to leave.

I think my marriage is over.

Sorry, I don't have very much.

Do you want coffee?


Time off, huh?

And people say being relentless is a bad thing.


He will remember.


What did Jen say?

Uh, that, um...

I, uh... keep secrets, that, uh... she doesn't know me anymore.

She just needs a few days to cool off.

Nah, she's right. I don't tell her anything.

Haven't been able to for years.

She doesn't want to know about a kid our daughter's age I pulled from a pond with her... neck sliced open.

Half-eaten by animals.

So I just tell her I'm fine, you know, and that I'm just moving up the ladder and-- you know.

I mean, we talk about, well, retirement.

Buying a boat.

But I don't want to buy a boat, and I don't want to retire.

I mean, this is the only thing that makes any sense to me.

Sometimes I think that people like us, we were just supposed to be alone.

That's not true.

She was Kallie's friend.

How did you know her?

She... helped me with things.

We were sort of friends.

Bullet would have hated that photo.

That's the way her folks want to remember her.

The way they imagined her to be.

Not the way she was.

I told Bullet this story about how I used to play this game with Kallie when she was little.

I'd close my eyes and count to five, and then when I'd open them she'd still be standing there.

If only it was that easy, huh?

She took care of your daughter.

Tried to protect her as best she could.

She was like a little pit bull.

She was just a little kid.

They all were.


Hey. Um...

Before you say anything, um...



I think you're wrong.

I think... that we can be different.


I'm sorry.

I messed up.

I-I should have told you about my past.

You're a step up for me.

Okay? And I'm a step down for you.

I'm-- I'm like five steps down for you.

And I ju-- I just wanted you to see the good stuff.

That is what I see.

Answer it.

They're just gonna keep calling you.

Yeah. Detective Holder.

Yeah, I'll be there.

All right, just tell him to wait for me.

Clock never stops.

So... I'll see you later.



Yeah, Stephen.

We had a fight.

It happens.

And for what it's worth, you're actually a half-step up... for me.

You must have been hanging out with some real losers before me.

Mm. Lawyers.

Okay. Okay.

Just go do your thing. All right?

You leaving?

I got too much going on at home.

I put in my papers and took my pension.

The guys know yet?


I'll give you odds it'll be two weeks before they even notice I'm gone.

Don't get too comfortable here, Evan.

I spent half my life in this place.

Just as much a prisoner as the rest of them.

I think I'll be okay.


You'll do fine.

Good luck.

That's as far as it came out.

You're late.

I thought you'd be halfway to Chicago by now.

.45. Two more in the backseat.

Fire was probably set yesterday afternoon.

Guy who opened the yard this morning found it.

Fireman called us when they found the body.

They don't got no security here?

Not on Sunday, apparently.

Not sure whether we got a John or a Jane Doe.

Coroner's en route.

You interview the guy who called it in?

I thought I'd wait for you.

Oh. So, this is for real then? Detective Linden.

You're not gonna peace out on me, leave me to crime-fight with jank-ass Jablonski?

Well, you're my ride, so...

I guess you're stuck with me.


I mean, not that I need you. But it's good.

You look nice.

I see you changed your... thingy.


And shaved. Kind of.


Even got a shower. Got to keep fresh.

One step at a time.

Damn. That's a crispy critter.

Let's do some work.


Number 21, your order is ready.

Chicken sandwich to go.

Are you done? Can I clear this for you?

You were at the church this morning.

I'm Kallie's mom.

I should probably get back to work.

I never had a job when I was your age.

I was too busy messing around with boys and partying.

Plus I had Kallie.

Number 2 combo.

Well... I haven't seen her in a while, so...

Oh, do you know her?

Yeah. I mean... kind of.

Her and Bullet were always hanging around.

I'm really sorry what happened to Bullet.

I'm sorry.

No, no. Hey, hey, look. It's okay.

I never had a lot of girlfriends.

I didn't want the competition, I guess, but Kallie knew better.

It's good to have girls around. Remember that.


I should probably get back to work.

You have really pretty hair.

It would look good short, too. You ever cut it short?

Number 19, your order's up.


You do hair, right? Kallie told me.

I could... do your hair sometime.

I mean, like if you wanted me to.

Could blow it out or cut it or curl it-- it'd be on me.


Yeah. Anytime.

Number 27, your order's ready.

Thanks. Maybe I will.

See ya.

Oh! Shh... ohh.


S-sorry, I-I can come back later.

Stay. I'm leaving.

I was out of my mind.

I put in for a new partner.

Brass put me in with Jablonski.

Guess I have you to thank for that.

How many solves you think I'm gonna get with a guy who looks like fat Hitler?

Don't think you're not still a dick.

Deedee's liable to shoot you in the skull you ever try to set foot in our house again.

She called Skinner, filed a formal complaint.

Wants to call in the damn dogs.

Don't worry.

I talked to them, told them we were all good.

Guess I'm old school. Cops don't rat on cops.

You can thank my TO for that.


I'll owe you.

You already do.


Packing up?

Yeah, we're... we're taking the rest of the files to the DA this afternoon.

He's gonna be formally charging Joe Mills.

And my, uh... the chief is talking about expanding the scope of my team.

So it looks like I'm gonna be keeping this office for a little while.

I'll be cherry-picking the big cases, the headline makers.

I'm very happy for you.

Well, I couldn't have done it without you.

You know, it's funny. This morning...

I was, um...

I was thinking about how you used to sing in the car.


Yeah, you used to do it all the time.

I never do that.


Used to sing the same song for days under your breath.

Used to drive me crazy.

I missed it.

You know?

You don't do it anymore? You sure?

No, I don't do that anymore.

Oh, man, that's too bad.

Holder's missing out.


You know, um...

I'm gonna be at the lake for the next-- for a few days.

Why don't you cut out early, pack a bag... come and join me for the weekend?

I would love to.


We caught a body... burned up-- it's gonna be hard to even get an ID.

Why don't you just give it to someone else, Sarah?

Use the rest, use some time by the lake.

I'll build a fire, get some wine.

Uh, s-sorry. Collins said you were here.

So, uh, the coroner's got something for us. - Mm-hmm.


Um, it's our case, so I should go.



Maybe I'll s-see you later.


So, um... what up with you and the boss man?

Nothing. What?

Going to the lake? Making a fire?

I don't know what you're talking about.

Oh, come on, Linden.

I mean, I don't got to be my sleuth par excellence to see that the cat's got the hand in the jelly jar.

And it ain't the first time, neither.

We worked together, we were partners, and...

And... and... and...

And we...


Don't-- don't do that.


Don't do that. Don't look at me like that.

How many times?

One time? Two times?

Three times? Stop me at anytime, Linden.

Four times? Five times?

You're such an idiot.

You are a human being. You're actual flesh and blood.


I mean, I'm just as surprised as you are.

You jealous?

Oh, well played, Detective Linden.

Well played.


I'm gonna do some work if that's all right with you.

Do your thing, 1-900.

One... two... three... four... five...

Sounds good.

Estimated time of death-- sometime yesterday afternoon, early evening.

Stomach contents were partially digested.

Gunshot to the head, point-blank range, and two to the chest.

Execution style.

.45 could be a drug murder.

Male, female?

Female, judging from the pelvis.

I'll need more time before I can give you her age.

Any prints?

Good luck getting any. He torched her.

Made sure no prints are coming off this body.

CSU pulled some partials from the backseat.

Could be hers. Do you have anything else?

Well, this is interesting.

He took out all her teeth. Postmortem.

Never seen anything like it.

Linden. Her ring finger's missing.

Was it burned off?

No. And lacerations to the bone are ragged, uneven.

Whatever took the finger off, it wasn't surgical either.

Hunting knife?

Could be.

The bone's partially healed. This wasn't a new injury.

When did it happen?

I couldn't be certain.

Can you guess?

Two weeks ago, tops.

It's the same ring finger missing.

Cut off two weeks ago? Just like Angie Gower.

You know her?

Mills was locked up last night. Couldn't have done it.

She was shot. It's not his MO.

We know that he cuts them.

And anyway, we don't even know if it's Angie.

Burnt the body so we couldn't ID it.

Pulled out her teeth one by one 'cause he didn't want her ID'd.

He tied up the last loose end.

Angie Gower was a street prostitute.

It's a high-risk population.

Someone else could have killed her.

I know you don't believe that.

Joe Mills had the rings.

He killed Bullet just like the others.

He put her in the back of his cab.

Who would have known Mills was our number-one suspect?

We didn't make it public.

Bullet called headquarters the night she was killed.

And SPD was all over that storage unit.

Think about what you're saying, Holder.

Only a cop could have had access to our files and known about Mills.

Only a cop could have found that storage unit before us.

Planted those trophies.

If our victim's Angie, and if our guy's a cop, this case is closed.

Holder, they're-- they're charging Joe Mills as we speak.

Got to call Skinner. Tell him to stall.

Do you have any idea what this is gonna do to him?

To his career, his life?

What do you want to do, sit on it?

And if you're right, Joe Mills will probably walk.

He could be innocent.

Yeah, but he's not innocent.

He takes girls into some filthy backroom, makes them take their clothes off, and films them.

That don't make him a killer.

What do you want to do, let the state hang another guy who didn't do it?

I got the file. Let's go.

Slim pickings.

Most everything's with the DA now.

I mean, I could call Caroline...

We don't tell anybody until we're sure.

Gonna take a look at those anytime soon?

Victims' names and addresses... time line from the coroner.

Most of this stuff is about Joe Mills.

Find Kallie's ring in that storage facility?


Who was the first victim?


Angie said he put her in the backseat.

Watched her through the rearview.

You know, made her feel like a prisoner.

Or... like a criminal in the backseat of a cop car.

Maybe that's how it started-- with an arrest.

That's why he puts them in the backseat.

He's-- he's chasing that first kill.

You gonna try to help me with this or not?

Who's the first victim?

Brigitte Delahanty. Killed early June 2009.

What's the address?

She stopped talking to me, stopped coming home.

She changed.

It was the drugs.

She was like a monster when she was high.

She would get violent, steal things... forge checks.

I couldn't have her in the house with my son.

I thought you caught the guy.

We're just following up before the case goes to trial.

Was Brigitte ever arrested?

Yeah. Sure. A few times.

Possession, solicitation-- you name it.

She even solicited an undercover police officer.

Do you have a name for that officer?


Look, it was a long time ago, okay?

Is this important for the trial?

The DA is just trying to anticipate anything that could come up.

She was doing better, you know?

Then she just took off again.

I'm sorry for your loss.

That's it?

Yeah, like I said, we're just following up.

Thank you for your time, Mr. Delahanty.

We'll be in touch.

You think they're gonna ask for the death penalty?


I hope so.

I want to be there when they do it.

Thank you again for your time.

If anything comes up, here's my card.

Feel free to call me anytime at this number.


You know Carl?

How do you know him?

Oh, he used to live next door.

He, uh, moved after Brigitte disappeared.

He's the one that got her in the Junior Officers program.

She said she wanted to be a cop.

He, uh... he came to tell us they had identified her body.

Meant a lot that he remembered her.

Reddick never once mentioned he knew one of the victims.

He knows we have Joe Mills.

If he's our guy, he's gonna get away with it.

Why would he risk killing Angie Gower?

'Cause she could ID him.

Maybe she saw him at the hospital.

I mean, it could explain why she bolted.

Bullet called SPD the night she got killed, and Reddick took that message.


He introduces Brigitte to the Junior Officers.

He sees her all the time in the program, in the neighborhood.

He gets to know her, and then what?

Why does he kill her?

I mean, I know this guy.

Worked with him for a year.

It doesn't explain Trisha Seward.


The killer was never after Trisha.

Unlock the car.

Do you have a map in here?

Yeah, in the glove box.


Seward built his kid a tree house.

He was staying in public housing here.

So what? - So, there's-- there's no parks anywhere near that complex.

There's no trees. Look.

The nearest trees to Seward's apartment-- here.

That's where the bodies were buried.


Hey. How much longer we got to be out here?

Anyway, it's over a mile from here to the kid's apartment.

Trisha and Ray used to fight all the time.

There were dozens of domestic-abuse calls.

Adrian slept in a closet. He was lonely, scared.

Still, a mile is a long way for a little kid.

In my first foster home, the lady used to cry all day long every day.

I'd wait until I couldn't stand it anymore, until I thought that I was gonna explode if I stayed another minute.

And then I'd run. Every couple days I'd run.

And they would find me and they would bring me back, and then I would run again.

Adrian's a runner, too.

What the hell you doing?


Hey, you're gonna break your damn neck.

He built Adrian a tree house in the woods.

Trisha Seward was killed December 26th.

These trees would have been bare.

So what?

Go to the edge of the pond.

They saw each other.

He wasn't coming to the apartment to kill Trisha.

He was coming to kill Adrian.

Come on, Adrian.

Maybe he's not home from school yet.


It's Detective Linden!

If you're here, open up, please!

Mrs. Clarke, where's Adrian?

We need to talk to him right away.

Well, he doesn't want to talk to you.

He doesn't need any more reminders about what happened to his father.

Please, just leave him alone.

Please, Mrs. Clarke, this is very important.

Maybe if you ask him if he wants to talk to us?

He's not home.

You sure about that?

Whose backpack is that?

That's his.

But he always calls me the minute he gets home.

That's the rule. Adrian?

Could he have left, gone to a friend's house?

No. He's supposed to stay here until I get back from work.

Adrian? Honey?



He's not here.

The back door was wide open.


Where's mom?

Just... wanted to spend some time with my little girl.

Mom said it was okay.

How was class?


Do you like the new teacher?

That's jazz class. This is ballet.


Do you love her?


The woman from work? With the hair.

Mom told me.

That's great, you know?

We were supposed to tell you together.

Listen, just so you know, it's got nothing to do with you.

I don't know if you could understand this... but I can't be something that I'm not.

I'm tired of it.

Listen. But I will always love you, honey.

Always love you.

I will always be the same person you've known all your life.

Nothing's gonna change that. Whatever happens.

Oh, my God, dad! Everything's gonna change!

Not my love-- not my love for you.

Then why are you doing this?

Lieutenant Skinner.

It's a 20-minute walk home.

He let himself in, dumped his backpack in the hall, somebody came in and got him.

Or the guy was already in the house waiting for him.

But either way, Adrian is gone.

So it's been what? An hour, hour and a half?

Neighbors see anything?

So far, no, nothing.


We got the wrong guy. It's not Joe Mills.

What are you talking about?

He killed Angie Gower.

That's the body that we found in the car this morning.

And now he's got Adrian.

Wait a minute. Wait a minute.

Slow down. What are you talking about?

Mills is in custody.

We just filed charges against him today.

It's not him.

It's a cop.

Come here. Come here.

Wait. W-what are you guys talking about?

What the hell are you talking about?

I know this is gonna sound crazy, Loo, but there's a lot of things pointing to Reddick.

Okay, listen. I know you guys had your differences, you know?

It's not that.

Just hear me out.

He was the one that took Bullet's final phone call.

He tried to dump the Ashley Kwon case...


...on Jablonski, a total incompetent.

Reddick knew the first victim. He lived next door to her.

He never told us anything about this.

He loses Angie Gower at the hospital before the sketch artist gets there.

Angie was killed yesterday.

And now Adrian's gone. He is tying up loose ends.

Okay, where's, uh-- where's Reddick now?

We don't know.

Look, I know this is really bad timing.

It's bad for the department and for you.

You think I give a sh1t about that?

Okay, look, you guys cover the scene here.

Look for the kid. I'll track down Reddick. All right?

Loo, I need to be the one to talk to him.

And I know he's got a girl on the side, and I think I know where she lives.

No, no, you-- you two stay on the case here.

Look for Adrian. I got to send a car out for him.

No, I-I got to talk to him. He was my partner.

Even the more reason for you to step off.

All right? Is that clear?

Yes, sir.

All right, now, we keep this quiet between the three of us.

And before we ruin a cop's life and reputation, we want to make sure.

'Cause so far we don't have squat.

All right?

Detective Holder, we got something.

I promised that I would keep him safe.

Well, we're gonna find him, trust me.

Hey. Gonna be all right.

Adrian just knocked on the door and asked if he could come in.

That was unusual.

Why-- did he say something to indicate he was scared?

No. I mean, he's shy, uh... but...

He and Henry had had a couple of play dates, but they didn't hit it off.

And, yes, maybe he was scared, I think.

What do you mean?

He said someone was following him.

Did he describe the person or know who it was?

No. I mean--

I just thought, because of what happened to his dad, that he was upset, and that maybe he didn't want to go home to an empty house.

I didn't see anyone following him--

Wait. You didn't let him stay here?

I had a doctor's appointment, and Henry had karate, so I-I didn't let him walk home alone.

I gave him a ride.

That was very kind of you.

Did you see anyone when you dropped him off?

No. - Maybe someone parked in a car nearby?

I'm sorry. I didn't see anyone.

All right. Thank you.

I need that footage right away.

DOT's sending footage of traffic cams between the school and Adrian's house, also the neighbor's house.

Maybe we'll get a hit on Reddick's car. What's he drive?

Gray Crown Vic. Still not picking up his phone.

Yeah, you're not supposed to be calling him.

Whatever. Let's check the traffic footage.

Then I'm gonna take a drive.

Got a feeling where Reddick's holed up.

Detective Holder?

Yeah, what up?

I'm Investigator Alvarez.

Guggenheim. Internal Affairs.

We need to speak to you, Detective.

About what?

You just come with us.

What's going on?

Another time, boys. I'm working a job right now.

So are we, and you don't want to walk in there in cuffs, do you, Detective?

Why are you stopping him? On what grounds?

I got this, Linden. I'll catch you in a few.

I'll call Skinner. He'll clear it up.

Any word from Skinner? He's not back yet?

Hey, Jimmy. It's me again.

I need you to call me back right away.

Holder's been taken by IA for questioning.

I really need your help.

All right, call me. Please.

You requested the traffic-cam footage, Sarah?


For the missing kid, Adrian Seward.

Yeah, yeah, I did.

This your kid?

That's him.

See this gray car in the background?

It shows up again... here, near the neighbor's house he went to.

Have you seen Reddick?

Skinner needs to talk to him.

He's-- he's looking for him.

Oh, he didn't mention anything about that to me, but then again, he was in a hurry to get out of here.

Skinner was here?

For a few minutes, then he took off.

Said something about a family emergency.

Can we blow up this car? Get a better visual on it?

Yeah, give it a shot.

Look, just call my supervisor.

He's gonna tell you what's what so I can get out of here, and then you can go do whatever it is that you do.

It's come to our attention that you're harassing your ex-partner, Carl Reddick.


Is it true that you've made numerous threatening phone calls to him and to his family?


It seems you've, uh, developed some sort of fixation with his daughter.

What, Reddick told you that?

You're serious?

Mind if we take a look at your phone?

As long as you don't mind the pictures of me banging your mama last night.

You assaulted Detective Reddick in his own house in front of his family-- is that correct?

Look, we had a little misunderstanding, but we're cool, all right?

Go talk to him if you don't believe me.

Better yet, bring him in here, and then we can all have a little tête-à-tat.

Yeah, well, Detective Reddick's not the one under investigation here.

Maybe he should be.


What are you doing?

Hey. What are you doing here?

Holder was taken by IA. I've been calling you.

They won't let me see him. You've got to get him out.

Yeah, I'll, uh-- yeah, I'll take care of it.

The traffic cams show that there was a gray car stalking Adrian.

Here and-- and here.

Could be anyone's car. Doesn't mean it's Reddick's.


So after all this, it really does come down to your career?

Your reputation?

Reopening the case would be too messy?

Yeah, you have no idea what I'm thinking.

Okay, so tell me because I don't-- I don't understand.

Just got to get out of here. Things have blown up with Jen.

Just-- just can't get into it right now.

James, right now we need to find this car.

We need to find Adrian.

And we will. I promise.

I don't understand why you're not doing anything!

Because the case you and Holder made against Reddick is appallingly weak and circumstantial at best.

Accusing a fellow cop without hard evidence?

I mean, I'm surprised at you, Sarah.

You used to be a thorough and careful detective!

Sorry you feel that way.

Listen. Wait, wait, wait.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

I'm just having a horrible day.

I'm just trying to keep it together, you know?

And I believe you.

Of course I do. I believe you.

You need to call IA.



This is nice.


Bethany, come on.

Wait a second.

Wait, wait, wait, wait. Bethany. Come here. Come here.

Are you really leaving?

Just for a little while.

Just till your mom and I have worked things out.

Hey. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.

Please don't go, daddy.

It's gonna be all right. Okay?

I love you, darling. I love you so much.

Hey. It's gonna be all right.


I'll see you soon, okay?




Yeah, it'll be all right.

That was awful. I'm sorry.

You want to see him alive, you'll come with me.

Hand over your weapon.

Where is he?

Where is he?!

Get your hands behind your back.

If you arrest me now, you'll never see him again.

He'll die out there alone.

Get in the car. Get in the car!

Shooting up with your CI's in '09.

Caught lifting meth from an evidence locker.

You're a bona fide tweak head.

I've been clean for over two years.

I got to get in touch with my partner, okay?

It's an emergency. Just give me two minutes on the phone.

You can talk to her all you want once we're done here, Steve.

Look, if the reason I'm here is because Reddick's been feeding you a bunch of BS, then call Lieutenant Skinner and he'll set you straight, all right?

I got to get out of here.

Hey, hey, sit down!

Reddick didn't file the complaint. Your lieutenant did.


That's right. So calling him ain't gonna do jack, Steve.

Open the door.

Open the door.

Open the door!

No, you haven't got anger-management issue.

Not one bit.

Look, my partner's life is in danger, you dumb son of a bitch.

Admit what you did to Reddick, Steve.

I mean, your own partner.

I thought you two were tight, loyal to the death.

When did Skinner file the complaint?

Right before we swooped you up.

So I don't think he's gonna come and save you now.

Look, worst-case scenario-- you'll sit in the tank for 48 hours, see a shrink, and you're back at your desk.

What's the big deal?

All right. I might as well come clean.

Good. Good.

I guess it's just like the stress of the job kind of got to me.

Reddick can be a mean son of a bitch--

I mean a real dick.

I planted a bomb in Reddick's car this morning.

You know the armory at the station?

It's four flash bangs light, and that's just my ignition source.

And, Alvarez, I'd be real careful scrolling through my phone right now.

You might just set it off, Holmes.


Got about 35 minutes until it's gonna blow.

If I were you, I'd get my fat ass out of this room and go get Reddick.

Where is he?!

Where the hell is that dickhead?!

I know you've got him in here!

Quit staring at me like a bunch of schoolgirls!

Huh?! Where's Holder?!


We're dealing with it, all right?

I'm taking my wife and kid bowling.

Next thing I know the entire bomb squad's all over my car, and you're dealing with it?

We couldn't take any chances.

Holder's an idiot. He's not Al-Qaeda.


All right, calm-- calm down.

Why don't you go take a breather or something?

Where are your brain trusts getting your intel from, anyway?

You couldn't solve a crime if it fell out of the sky and sat on your face!

My PBA rep's en route, so I suggest you pull that tampon out of your ass and cut him loose.

You've reached the voicemail of Detective Sarah Linden.

Come on, Linden. Pick up your damn phone, all right?

You son of a bitch, you scared the crap out of my wife and kid.

Deedee's still popping Xanax.

It was a whack move, all right?

I had to get out of there. Look, I need your help.

Hey, pal, that is the last favor I will ever do for you.

You need professional help.

Ray Seward's kid's gone missing.

What are you talking about?

I don't have time to explain, but I need you to find him.

Missing? How long's he been gone?

We got an APB out on him. We got units on the street.

Where the hell you going?

I got to go find the son of a bitch who set me up.

No, you want to see Adrian, you turn that off.

Shut up.

Now, Holder's a good cop.

But he'll be a better one once he learns a little self-control.

You had him detained by IA.

You were getting too close too fast.

Never wanted this to happen.

Including kidnapping Adrian?

Where is he?

I understand how upsetting this is, but your hands are trembling.

It's making me a little nervous.

Blowing my brains out right now is not gonna help anyone.


We'll be there soon. Don't worry.

Yes. What is it?

I'm Detective Stephen Holder. Is your husband here?

Oh, for Christ's sake.

Don't you people know how to use a phone?

He's not answering his phone.

Well, he's not here. He left 20 minutes ago.

Where'd he go?

I don't know.

Listen, lady. You don't seem to understand.

I need to know where the hell your husband is right now.

Then ask his girlfriend, and get your foot out of the door before I break it.

Wait. His girlfriend?

Y-you're talking about Detective Linden?

Yes. Her.

She was here? They left together?


What is wrong with you?

Where's the lake house?

Where's the lake house?

You had to take that case this morning.

That changed everything.

Now, why couldn't you walk away?

"Walk away."

Things would be different right now.

For both of us.


I don't expect you to understand.

Understand what? That you murdered 21 girls?

No, I don't understand that.

How could I understand that?!

How could anybody understand that?!

How do I even know that you're taking me to Adrian or that he's alive?

You don't.

But I told you he was.

You used to trust me implicitly, Sarah.

This morning in your kitchen--

Don't do that.

I-I thought it was a beginning for us.

Don't do that!

I wanted to change for you.

And I thought I could.

'Cause I have been alone... for-- for too long.

For too long.

And so have you.

So have you.

You and I are nothing alike.

You have reached the voicemail of Detective Sarah Linden.

Linden, pick up your damn phone!

...as soon as I can.

Call me back.

You think you know what this is, Sarah?

You don't.

The first one was an accident.

Her name was Brigitte. It was Brigitte Delahanty.

She was in the Junior Officers program.

Is that where you met her?

Reddick brought her in.

And I tried to help her.

Then one day she doesn't show up.

You know? And I go looking for her.

Now I'm missing my kid's softball game, for Christ's sake.

And this little crackhead could give a damn.

Then I find her on the street... high.

Turning tricks.


So I make her get in my car.

You know?

She spits at me.

So I hit her.

I mean, it was almost a reflex.

And... she's bleeding now.

And she's looking at me... with that face... with those eyes.

And, uh, now I know that she's gonna tell.

She's gonna bring me down, destroy everything-- everything that I worked for.

So, I take her out to the woods, and...

I don't remember much after that.

It was quiet.



I mean, she didn't cry, she didn't scream, she didn't...


She just...

She just looked at me.

You know, their eyes... when they know that it's the end, they look at you like... like no one else.

Stop it.

When you go past the pain, you pass the animal terror... there's nothing else-- nothing else in the world like it.

But you're a father. You're--

You have Bethany. You adore her.

She's no different than... than these girls that you killed.

They're just junkies, whores.

They're just a burden to their families.

I mean, they're everywhere.

They're under bridges, they're just walking alone at night.

They're in cheap, amateur p0rn video.

And nobody sees them. Because nobody cares.

Just... human garbage.

So you just killed them?

I saved them from the inevitability of their lives.

You're a monster.



I don't know if this is anything, but I'm at the foster mom's house.

I found something in the kid's backpack.


Something he wrote for school.

"I don't want to be alone. That's what scares me.

If my dad does die, I want to be with my mom."

His mom's dead.

I know.

You don't think the kid would try and off himself, do you?

Nah, he's a kid.

He-- he probably meant his foster mom.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Just grasping at straws.

Okay. Let me check something out. I'll get back to you.

You went to kill Adrian that night.

Trisha Seward just got in the way.

No, no, no. I never meant to kill him.

No, the tree house was far from the water.

I wasn't sure how much he saw, so I just wanted to talk to him, see what he knew.

That's all.

You went to his apartment at 1:00 in the morning.

To talk to him? Quit lying to me.

You went there to kill him.

No, if I wanted to kill him I could have a dozen times.

But he didn't remember me.

I mean, that's when I knew that I was... I was free.

Until you kidnapped him.

Why did you take him to this place?

'Cause of you.

You said he was starting to remember.

You were helping him remember.

So, you left me no choice, Sarah.

Did you kill him?

Well, you know, I should have.

I'd be long gone by now.

I couldn't do it.

I don't kill children.

They're all children!

No. There's a difference between 6 and 16.

They were 12-year-old girls!

How do you do that?!

I don't need excuses.

What about you? What's your excuse?

Why are you here?

Hmm? Are you here for Adrian, or is it because you need to understand how you could have made love to me just a few hours ago?

Don't do that.

It meant something, Sarah.

Admit it. You loved me, Sarah.

Because I didn't know you.

No. But a part of you did. Part of you did.

What are you talking about?

No, you knew something. You knew something.

I mean, that's why you ended up in the hospital.

But you still loved me.

Oh, you-- you b*st*rd! You son of a bitch! - Hey, hey. Hey. Hey.

Don't you make this about me!

You're gonna kill us both. Sarah, stop!

What are you gonna do?!

Stop! Stop!

Stop! Stop!

Hit me?! Cut my throat?! Is that what happens?! - Stop it!

Don't touch me!

Don't touch me! Just get away from me!

Just get back in the car!

Get back in the car.

Where is he?

Not far.

What is this place?

The lake house.

I wish you would have seen it in the daylight.

The water's beautiful.

Cold and deep.

Is this where you put Kallie?

Kallie Leeds.

The missing girl with the red hair.

You don't remember her?

You gave her ring to your daughter.

She had blue eyes... and these little star earrings.

Are there more girls in the lake?

And other places.

No one will ever find them.

It's the loneliest thing in the world, waiting to be found.

It's exhausting to hide, to pretend.

I don't have to pretend anymore.

Not with you.

And it was working out so well.

That Joe Mills, that waste of life.

I planted those rings. I put that girl in the trunk.


Her name was Bullet.


She called headquarters.

She thought she was being clever, leaving a message for Holder.

"I know who it is."

So I had to go to her.

You understand?

I should have seen.

You didn't see because you didn't want to see.

Where is Adrian?

Get out of the car.



Where is he?

Where's Adrian?

He's been with us the whole time.

He's in the trunk.

Give me the keys!

Give me those keys.


You okay?


I'm a police officer.

It's gonna be okay.


Give me the keys.

You know, those girls... they weren't that innocent, Sarah.

You should have seen what they did with me.

Shut up!

Shut your filthy mouth, you son of a bitch.

Give me those keys.

I lied.

If there is one thing I regret... it's killing that boy.


Killing Adrian off, 'cause I don't-- I don't do that.

I don't kill little children.



You okay, Linden?


You okay?

We got him. Adrian-- he's alive.

Reddick found him. He's with him right now.

Adrian's alive.

He's fine.

Put the gun down.

Linden. Linden. Look at me.

He wants you to do this. Put the gun down.

Put the gun down, Linden.

Look at me, Sarah.

Look at me.

It's got to be you. You loved me.

You loved me. You-- you love me.


It's over.

Look at me.

Oh, no!


No, no, no.
