01x10 - Armageddon Protocol

Post by bunniefuu »

Peter: Previously on Dig...

For this prophecy to come true, they'd need...

A red heifer, a high priest.

It's undetectable.

Margrove: Something terrible is about to happen.

Meet me at the dig site right now.

Peter, Liat is dirty.

I never told her the package was a kid.


God damn it, Peter. Where are you?

You're not gonna believe this.

[tires screeching]

Over here.

What was so important you couldn't tell me on the phone?

You should probably see for yourself.

[tense music]

We're right below the foundation stone.

So the Dome of the Rock is up there.

For now, until the Order of Moriah destroys it all.

Destroys it how?

I wasn't paid to ask them questions.

They funded my dig. I took their money.

They hired me to get them to the Well of Souls, but I was interested in what lay 2 feet behind that wall.

A passageway called Warren's shaft.

Sir Charles Warren came the closest to finding the treasures 150 years ago.

I was going to pick up where he left off.

A couple of whacks with that pick, I'd be through the wall.

Just waiting for my time.

Much good it would do now.

I led them here, and now they're going to use it to destroy it all.

The foundation stone, the Al Aqsa, the Dome of the Rock.

Look, I may be an opportunist...

And an assh*le.

Granted. But I'm not crazy.

If that mosque comes down, it'll be World w*r III up there.

Armageddon, the end of everything.

Golan: God damn it, Peter. Where are you?

I know everything. He talked.

If what he told me is right, I think you're in great danger.

[tires screech]


Ah, shit.


Ah, shit. No.

Hey, hey, hey!

Hey, hey, hey, whoa.

No. It's all right. It's okay.

Oh, shit.

No, no, no.

He's my friend, okay? He's my friend.

Hey, hey, just wait, wait. One second.

One second. Just...

man: Hey.

[police radio chatter]


Hey. Hey!

Hey. What did you tell him?

Gregory, wake up. What did you tell him?

Gregory! Gre... [grunts]

Who's Rebecca?

[speaking Hebrew]

Who is Rebecca?

Who is Rebecca?

He's been identified by the boyfriend, so we can do the autopsy now.

I'm gonna find out who did this.

Does it matter?

Did Golan know anybody called Rebecca?


Not that I know.


I'm so sorry.

Thank you.

Me too.

There are prophecies that say beware the blood moon.

A harbinger of the End of Days. I know.

Tomorrow night it will be full.

[tense music]


Liat, I know you can see me. Look at me, please.

Lynn, I did not want it to end this way.

Just take off the blindfold.

[cell phone beeps]





[both grunting]

[techno music]






I saw it on the news.

I couldn't believe it was him.

It's so awful.

He was onto something, so they k*lled him.

I thought you were with him.

No, I was with Margrove.

Margrove, why?

He called.

He found the Well of Souls.



Turns out he was working for the Order of Moriah like we thought, but now he wants out.

He's found out they're gonna destroy the whole temple mount.

From the Well of Souls?

But that doesn't make any sense.

I mean, if this whole thing is about rebuilding the temple, they can't do that without the foundation stone.

None of it makes any sense to me.

Maybe it should just all end.

All the pain and suffering in the world just... let everybody wipe each other out.

In the name of God.


No, I can't let you do this, Peter.

We have to figure a way out of this.

I can't stop it.

I can't stop anything.

How did you get sandstone on your shirt?


There's sandstone on your shirt.

Where'd it come from?

I don't know. The tunnels?

There's no sandstone in the tunnels.

The whole idea of tunnels is to bring water to the city.

Sandstone and water don't work.

"Follow the water."

Both Margrove and Donaldson said that.

"Follow the water."

Stay here.

Wait, where are you going?

To get a geology lesson.

[indistinct chatter]

Peter: I must have rubbed up against a wall somewhere about there.

That's impossible. That's the...

Right under the foundation stone.

They broke through to the Well of Souls.

That's incredible, but sandstone? No.

The entire temple mount will collapse.

There's a source of water there.

Peter: There's a pond there, off tunnel seven.

What's the source of that water?

Here. The dam at Beit Zait, above the city here, releases water that feeds these aquifers here.

So if the dam was destroyed, where would the water go?

Through these same tunnels, flooding them all.

Half the city would be under water, thousands of homes.

It would be chaos.



There are escape routes beneath the city.

They're connected to the tunnels.

Yes. They connect here and here.

A set of large automated steel doors seal them off.

And if those doors were open, then the water would...

Would do what?

The protocol has never been enacted, thank God.

Especially given its name.

"Armageddon Protocol."


Did he buy it?

He should be finding out about the Armageddon Protocol right about now.

Let's go get our treasure.

[engine starts]

Josh: We need to talk.

Okay, let's talk.


Josh, I'm sure you must be nervous, but I want to assure you there is nothing to worry about.

Both Faye and I will be right by your side.

No, you won't.

What are you talking about?

Your help in getting me to this point is very much appreciated, but just like Moses, you will not arrive at the promised land.

What the hell are you talking about, Josh?

I raised you for 13 years.

I'm the closest thing you have to a father.

My father is God.

You're no longer needed, Tad.


You served your purpose, and you'll get your reward in the kingdom to come.

Now be gone.

I literally made you, you little shit.

You want to know the real story? Trust me, you...

I said go.


And send the tailor back in.

[eerie music]


[cell phone beeps]

[dramatic music]

[cell phone beeps]

Hey! Hey!


I have put my life on the line for his little spoiled ass.

And now I am no longer needed?

How dare he?

Maybe it's the jetlag.

It's a test.

A test?


God is putting us through a final test.

What are you talking about?

Something has happened to the boy.

Mm. Just like the first Josh.

No matter what we did, how we followed protocol, it never took because God never intended it to take.


Perhaps Satan himself has entered the boy.

We need to continue on our path but without him.

Without him?

I raised those boys. I carried them to term myself.

Don't you see, Faye?

There is no Josh anymore.

But I have devoted 13 years for this.

I am the one who should sacrifice the cow, not the boy.

I know what needs to be done.

You're thinking of your ego, not of God.

We must get rid of the demon.

God speaks clearly, and what God wants now...




I cannot allow you to stop the prophecy.


Oh, well.

[birds chirping]

[tense music]



Hey, stop!

Hey, stop!


How'd you know?

"It's all about the water."

That's what you said when you were passed out in the cave.


Can you defuse it?

I don't know.

I owe you.

[speaking Hebrew]

Lynn Monahan.

Are you okay?

Do you need medical assistance?

No, I'm fine.

Yes, ma'am.

Krugman: What a great day it is.

Just a few last-minute details. I need a secure line.

Ridell: Of course. You can use the phone in my office.


It's fail safe.

I could never get them all done anyway.

[speaking Hebrew]

What are you doing? Seriously?

[cell phone vibrating]


No, it's me.

Where are you?

I'm outside the Consulate.

Listen, I have a g*n under my desk.

You have no idea what I've just been through.

I can get in there. If I can sneak in, I can get up to Ridell.

Forget the g*n.

You need to get to a member of the Israeli government who can enact something called the Armageddon Protocol.

Lynn: The what?

They're going to blow up the dam at Beit Zait, flood the city through the tunnels.

Uh, Moshe Krugman, the Defense Minister, just walked in with Ridell.

I don't know whose side he's on though.

Well, get to him and find out.

Is she gonna do it?

Even if she does, it's not going to save the Dome of the Rock.


Because they dug through the tunnels to the Well of Souls.

It's sandstone.

The water would go straight in there.

Everything would crumble.

Warren's shaft.

There's a shaft.

Uh, Margrove showed me this morning.

It's 2 feet behind stone.

If we open it up, maybe the water goes down the shaft.

So what are we waiting for?

[Lev speaking Hebrew]

[Lev speaking Hebrew]

[tense music]

[Lev speaking Hebrew]

The treasures.

It's even more beautiful than I dreamed of.

Krugman: Thank you.

[clears throat]

I'll be out in a few moments.

Wait for me outside.

[Lev speaking Hebrew]


all: Amen.

[speaking Hebrew]

Put the phone down.


[indistinct chatter]


I've seen something on the security camera feed I think you should know about.

Hold on.

[tense music]

Grab it.


Come on.

It's right through here.

We have six minutes.


Mr. Krugman, my name is Lynn Monahan.

You know me.

I'm the legal attaché. You've met me.

You know I'm not crazy.

There is a b*mb about to explode the dam at Beit Zait.

Either you know that information, or I can trust that you will help save half this city from being washed away.

I know nothing about a b*mb.

Ambassador Ridell is in on it.

I need you to pick up that phone and engage Armageddon Protocol.

[door slams open]

Get up. Put down the g*n!

Look, look.

Put down the g*n.

Do as she says. Do as she says.

No, don't.

Agent Monahan has been suffering from delusions lately.

She needs medical attention.

[tense music]

[Lev speaking Hebrew]


Peter: Get the sledgehammer.

Is that the bottom?

I don't know.

Maybe the shaft continues below.

I'm going down.





It's a false floor.

It goes down deeper.

Throw me down the sledgehammer.

You can save thousands of people's lives if you just make that one call.

Trust me.

Don't touch the phone, Mr. Krugman.

If I'm right and you don't pick up that phone, the whole of Temple Mount will be destroyed.

I will hold you accountable.

I will make sure that everyone knows that you could have prevented it.

It's your call.

Don't do it.

Why? If she's right...

She's wrong.

She's delusional.

[dramatic music]

This is the U.S. Embassy.

This is American soil.

Step away from that phone!

Escort Ambassador Ridell out.

This is ridiculous.

[speaking Hebrew]

Thank you.

[door opens]

The Armageddon Protocol: the end of their world, the beginning of ours.

Thank you, Peter Connelly.



Come on!

Come on!




Peter: Come on!

Come on!

[panicked chatter]


Any second now.

Turns out my father was right all along.

It's all about the water.

Your father?

Did I leave that part out?



Come on.

Jump and take my hand. Come on.



Why isn't it happening?

Something is wrong.

Let's continue with the cow.



Nothing's happening.

Then I guess it worked.

[indistinct chatter]

How many others do you think are involved?

I don't know.


All of them.

That's the scary part.

You got a lot of work ahead of you.


Unless you want to beg me to take my job back.

That's all right.

I'm as done with me here as you are.

I'm gonna grab some things from the office.


[indistinct chatter]

[suspenseful music]

Don't bother.

He's been d*ad for hours.

I've been waiting for you.

Rebecca Donaldson.

I haven't heard my real name in a very long time.

Right there.

That's what this was all about?

Punishing the man who betrayed your father?



He took everything from me.

My father, my mother.

You saw what he did to my brother.

Hating Margrove was the only thing that kept me alive.


What the hell happened to you?

When I was 15, I learned the whole story about what happened to my family.

And that day, Rebecca Donaldson died, and Emma Wilson was born.

I enrolled in the University of Pennsylvania, took all of Margrove's classes.

It wasn't hard to get his attention.

Every man has a type.

Can you imagine what it feels like to be in the arms of a man you've hated your entire life?


Once I got him to trust me, he told me about the people that were paying him to dig where no one should be digging.


I had to pretend that I didn't know about the Order of Moriah even though I wake up every night hearing my father's crazy rantings about them.

That's it?

'Cause of your nightmares, you'd allow half the world to die?


The Armageddon Protocol.

That's why me, right?

That's why you chose me.

You needed someone to stop the Order of Moriah.

Everything went according to plan, except for one small thing.

I never counted on falling in love with you, Peter.

This is our way out.

You and me.

Come with me, Peter.

You think that's how this ends?

We waltz out of here into the sunset?

You k*lled people.


He was going to ruin everything.

I couldn't let him do that.

And you think I'm going to let you get away with that?

I'm not going to jail, Peter.

If you're going to stop me, there's only one way.

You have a g*n.


I'll do it for you.

Just like your daughter.

You're nothing like my daughter.

She was honest and pure.

Don't pretend you don't have feelings for me, Peter.

That's why you came here alone.

I know you.

You love me.


If you really knew me, then you would know that I came here to say good-bye.

In two minutes, this place will be swarming with police.

Don't lie to me, Peter.

[sirens approaching]

What did you do?

What did you do, Peter?

My job.

Don't walk away from me.

I waited for you!


Fine. I'll see you in hell, Peter.

Not if I see you first.

[sirens continue approaching]


[police radio chatter]

[soft music]

[horns honking]


It's open.

She didn't go down easy, but we've got her in custody, along with Rabbi Lev, the boy, and his guardian.

Sorry I didn't tell you she was alive.

We have a lot to talk about.

Not tonight.

Please not tonight.

What are you going to do? You going to go home?

Back to my wife?

Not yet.

You going to stay here?


I was thinking of asking my boss for a transfer.

Oh. Anywhere in particular?

Just anywhere far, far away.


[gentle music]



Thank you.

For what?

For being my friend.

The only one you've got.
