- Fabulous, so good.


Yeah, brilliant. I love it.

Lula, you're looking great.


Brilliant. I love it.

You're k*lling it, babe.

Let's go.

♪ Watch you for a lifetime ♪

OK, two more minutes
and I want her to take a break.


She needs to change anyway.

Sponsors want shots of her
in all the outfits.

It's in her contract.

Whoo! I love it.

Welcome, everybody,
to the Leprechaun Leap K.

Please make sure to sign in

to get your entry passes
for this year's race.

Quite the parking spot you got there.

- How'd you manage that?

I don't know how you decided to drive.

I didn't think I'd ever
find a parking spot.

Yeah, well, drunk people on the streets

were exactly what I wanted
to try and avoid the subway.

Smart. Did you see who's over there?

- No.
- Lula Arslan,

the tennis player
and social media activist.

- Oh, no way.
- Ingrid loves her.

Oh, you should get her an autograph.

She'd be thrilled.
But you snooze, you lose.

She had no interest in getting up

on a Saturday morning to run a K.

Yeah, well, she didn't have
to answer to Isobel, right?

She made it pretty clear she wanted us

all here to support this.

Yeah, she did.

Speaking of, where is everybody?

Remy's close. Ray's on call today.

Hana's dragging her feet.

She says there's no such thing
as running for fun.

Well, she's not wrong.


Where are Charlotte and the kids?

They're taking my dad out
for brunch today.

- It's his birthday.
- It's his birthday?


You could have skipped out for that.

Nah, I texted him.

You don't talk about him too much.

You're not so close?

You know what? We're just different.

You know, he was a radical
back in the ' s,

anti-w*r protester, rights activist,

hates authority.

And he says the only reason cops exist

are to keep the Black man down.

How did he feel when
you became an agent?

He hated it along with some
of my other life choices.

But you know, it's OK.

We got this thing where
we don't discuss any of it,

bit like politics at Thanksgiving.


Well, family can be tough, huh?

Yeah, there's only so much conversation

you can have about
the Knicks and the weather.

So you know, I'm happy to be here.

Yeah, we did that.

OK, well, keep pressure

These guys, they came and grabbed Lula.

- Then they sh*t Coach Tanner.
- Which guys?

They were paramedics.

Or at least they said they were.

FBI, right?


This lady just saw something.

What did you see?

I was, like, two blocks over
by the underpass.

And there were these two guys.

They were, like, paramedics,
and a girl on a stretcher.

And they were running.

OK, was the girl wearing tennis clothes?

Yes. And it was so strange
because she was on a stretcher,

but they put her in a taxicab.

And a guy came out the cab,

pulled her in, and then they took off.

And "he" meaning the driver?

No, it was someone from the back seat.

OK, so there are four unsubs.

Which direction did they go in?

That way, by the underpass.

OK, and it was a yellow cab?

Yeah, but like a big one,
like, um, one of the vans.

And the right tail light was broken

because they had smashed
into it with the stretcher.

OK, that's really good. Thank you.

Excuse me.


What the hell's going on?

I'm hearing sirens everywhere.

Shots fired at the Davidson Park courts.

Two d*ad, one wounded.

The perps are two males
dressed as paramedics.

They kidnapped Lula Arslan.

- The tennis player?
- Yeah.

She was on the tennis court
doing a photo sh**t.

We've got a witness
who said that she saw

the perps load her into a yellow cab,

two other unsubs inside.

They went east on Roosevelt.
It's a van-style cab,

uh, broken right tail light.

PD in pursuit?

We literally just got this.

Get the word out. Let PD know.

I'm going after them.


Remy's in pursuit.

Get a BOLO out on that taxi, will you?

Lula Arslan, a -year-old
tennis star out of Croatia.

You know about Petrov, right?

Her ex-boyfriend?

Yes, he's here in the city right now.

And he's completely wack.

And I wouldn't be surprised
if he's involved in this.

All right, why?

He's been harassing Lula for months.

She had to block him on everything.

He's a big reason why she had
to shut out the media.

She's trying to stay focused.

And he's wilding out, blaming
her for why he sucks so bad.

That guy is not right.

- Was he around here today?
- No.

But he's got money and a huge grudge.

And I would not put it past him
if he hired these guys.

Is that the bottle Lula drank
out of before she collapsed?

Yeah, I mix her electrolytes
before every game,

every practice... it's routine.

Same bottle every time?

Yeah, yeah, she only uses that one.

I mean, you know how these athletes are

with their superstitions and rituals.

No, don't touch it.

Remy's in pursuit of a
yellow cab with four unsubs.

We got the driver, two fake paramedics,

Let's say he is an abuser.

This is still a far cry from
organizing a kidnapping like this.

According to his TikTok,

he was clubbing last night
in the West Village,

not far from Lula's hotel.

Rubinsky's one of the
few Russian athletes

that didn't denounce
the invasion of Ukraine.

He comes from a family

Hana, this is Chuck Poffo.

We used to work together at PD.

- Oh, nice to meet you.
- Pleasure.

Did PD call you in to consult?

No, I was here on a stakeout.

Who were you surveilling?

Lula Arslan.


I'm a private investigator now.

A few weeks ago, an overseas
client contacted me.

They said Lula owes hundreds of
thousands in credit card debt,

racked up in Dubai.

They needed help tracking
her down to collect.

I'm sure you know by now,
she's pretty hard to pin down

outside of her matches.

Today is the closest I ever got to her.

When she happened to just get
kidnapped in broad daylight?

Did you tell anyone she was here?

No, Sheryll,
I had nothing to do with this.

Look, I just want to help.

OK, well, you need to tell us
everything you know.

We're looking at her
ex-boyfriend, Petrov Rubinsky.

He popped on my radar when
I first did research on Lula,

so I've been keeping an eye on him.

He flew out early this
morning for Indian Wells.

And who's your client?

Well, we never actually met in person.

We communicate through email
and the occasional phone call.

Well, if they're from overseas,

it could still be Rubinsky
or someone working for him.

Rubinsky lives and trains in Miami.

My client tends to
contact me at off hours,

so I figure they're
in another time zone.

Did you notice anything
different this morning

before the kidnapping?

No, I don't think so.

Lula went directly from her
hotel to the photo sh**t.

And, uh, she was always with her team.

We think someone may have
spiked her water bottle.

Her trainer says
she never leaves it unattended.

But did you notice any time
that she might have?

She used the bathroom outside the court

to change into her outfit for the sh**t.

There's a cam outside the ladies' room.

Might be worth it to check the footage.

OK, that's a good idea. Thank you.

who his client is?

I trust him, Remy.

He mentored me when I was a rookie.

You know, a lot of foreign governments

have been hiring American PIs

to spy on their citizens abroad, right?

Except Lula is Croatian.

They're not exactly a dictatorship.

Why would they care?

Well, that's why we're calling you.

I've been digging,
and Lula was born in Croatia.

But her family was originally from Iran.

In the ' revolution, her grandfather

landed on Khomeini's blacklist

and was hunted down by the government

and m*rder by one of their
k*ll squads.

So Lula's family defected
to Croatia for their safety?

Yes, but she clearly never forgot.

Now, two weeks ago, she started posting

in support of Mahsa Amini,
the woman who was m*rder

by Iran's morality police
for not wearing a hijab.

I know who she is.

Lula has over million followers.

And she was very vocal

OK, just got the footage from the camera

outside the park bathroom.

One of the kidnappers
dressed as a paramedic

What do you call a bulletproof Irishman?


Rick O'Shay.



Honey, what are you doing here?

I just thought I'd drop by.
How was brunch?

Oh, it was good.

It would have been much better
if you were there.

Is Dad around?

You know where to find him.


Hey, Dad. Happy birthday.

Sorry I missed brunch.

It's OK. We had fun with the kids.

All natural ingredients that
will have your cat meowing.

You waiting on the Knicks game?

Sort of.

Recapping the top story tonight.

Tennis player Lula Arslan
was rescued by the FBI

from a kidnapping attempt

by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.


You had a busy day.

How's your tennis player doing?

She's OK. She's going to be just fine.

Thank God she's a fighter.

Just like you.

And where do you think I got that from?

I'm no fighter...

not the way you wish I had been.
Isn't that right?

You fought with me plenty
about my choice

to become a cop and join the FBI.

Hey, don't make me
come in there, you two.

Listen, I didn't come here to argue.

I came here to say...

[SIGHS] That I understand
a little better now that

just because someone gives you
orders to do something,

it doesn't always mean it's right.


And I respect you've always
stood up for your values.

- Mm.
- And I just wish

that you would respect my values
and my choices too.

I didn't raise you to be a fool.

And only a fool would chase
the uniform or risk her life

every single day to serve a country,

a system that doesn't value her life,

her mother's life, her father's life,

or, God forbid, her children's lives.

See, that's the problem.

When you see me,
that's all you see, the uniform.

You don't see me.

You don't see your daughter,

the one you raised to stand up
for what I believe in.

You know what?
Maybe you did raise a fool.

I honestly thought
we could have a conversation

instead of arguing.

What is there to talk about?

Every week,
the headlines parade another name,

another tragedy,

in Ferguson, St. Paul, Memphis.

It never changes, and I'm tired.

And I'm trying to change that,
Dad, in my own way.

We both want the same thing,

the right to feel safe
in our communities,

the right to feel safe in our bodies.

And I'm trying to do my part,
and honestly, I have no idea

what it's going to take
to change things out there.

But I was hoping...

I was hoping we could start
by trying to change

things in here between us.

After the day you had,

you still thought of me and came by.

And I jumped down your throat.

I'm sorry.

♪ ♪

I can't promise I'll ever
understand you completely

or that we'll see eye to eye,

but, uh,

I'm willing to listen.

So should I bring you two some ice packs

or some ice cream?

Let's have ice cream,

since I missed your
birthday cake this morning.
