exactly the same speed on either side of MAYHEW.

He accelerates. They accelerate.

He brakes.

The Night Manager ep 4 final

Only to see another van right up behind him. Grubby

windscreen, impossible to look into.

Now he knows.

The vans start to move close together. Squeezing him.

MAYHEW sees a traffic light ahead. It’s green.

He prays. Please go red. Please go red.

The light goes red. MAYHEW starts to slow, the vans follow


Then suddenly MAYHEW accelerates! Breaks the red light, is

almost killed by a Mercedes that is coming from the right to

join the road, a furious blaring of horns, shouts of rage

from the Merc, but MAYHEW doesn’t care, he is cycling for his

life, full pelt towards the centre of London.





PINE lies back, deep in the night. Apparently sleeping.

Then his eyes open.

He lifts a floorboard, grabs a knife from underneath.

Walks quietly out and into the living room.

He opens the front door.

Walks fast to confront the figure who is in the small alley

beside the house.

Grabs the figure.

Then pauses in shock.

It is JED.

She stares at the knife in his hand.

PINE looks around. No one in the darkness.


Come in.



JED sits on a small wooden stool. PINE is boiling a kettle.

Controlling his nerves.

The Night Manager ep 4 final


No one saw me.


You saw no one see you. That’s not

the same thing.

He looks out the window into the darkness.
