Deadly Impact

Synopsis: The Lion is a formidable assassin - clever, skilled, and cruel. In Albuquerque, he forces police detective Tom Armstrong into a tailspin of grief. Several years later, Armstrong's living alone in Mexico when the FBI seeks him out to help: they may have a lead on the Lion. Back in Albuquerque it seems that the Lion has unfinished business, and while he pursues his unknown objectives, he also stays one deadly step ahead of the police and the FBI. For Armstrong it's personal. Can he return to the states and find the arch villain, or is he walking back into more pain and loss?

There's gotta be a million people

in the middle of that store.

Tommy. Tommy, if you ever wanna call me

friend again, you'll help me right now.

Okay, you've been in charge of the tree

for the last 10 years,

and somehow or another

you've always managed to pull it off.

I have faith in you, brother.

Anybody heard from Kelly?

Uh, she had to run out real quick

and pick up some last-minute stuff.

Yes, she did, didn't she?

She's getting me

that stainless steel barbecue, isn't she?

- I don't know.

- You know what she's...

And so do you. Don't...

That's fine. That's all right.

I like surprises. That's all right.

Is that what you got for Aunt Kelly?

- Yeah.

- Hmm.

- Why, you don't like it?

- It's nice.

Come on now.

Your daddy helped me pick it out.


Two men shouldn't

go shopping for jewelry.

What do you... You know what?

She's gonna love it 'cause it's from Tommy.

And second of all,

it's the thought that counts, anyway.

Okay, yeah. Well, I don't want her to love it

because Tommy got it for her.

- You're the one...

- Just relax, okay?

- Don't listen to her. Just wrap the gift.

Hey, Dad.

- What?

Sometimes it's the gift that matters.

Oh, really? So, then your gift for me

better be really good.

It is. I maxed out your card.

- Did you hear that?

- I... Yeah, I did.

Between an ex-wife

and a teenage daughter,

you wonder why I'm broke all the time?

Well, I'm starting to figure it out,

I tell you that much.

When are you guys gonna have kids?

Well, you know what?

It might be sooner than you think.

I mean, Kelly's sister

and that husband of theirs...

I mean, they're replicating

like rabbits, you know?

And that's put Kelly in the mood.

It really has.

And you know me, I mean,

I've always wanted kids, so...

You never know. We'll see.

I told you I could count on you,

now didn't I?


- It's Christmas Eve.

- I know, baby. I'm sorry.

If we're gonna be more than 45 minutes,

- tell Kelly I'll give her a call.

- I love you, too. Bye.

Our informant

has set a meeting with The Lion.

We have a time and a place.

Get the team prepped

and ready to move out ASAP.

- What's up?

- Tonight could be a career moment for us.

- We have a location on The Lion.

- Reliable?

Well, the tip comes from a guy

who claims he's his father.

He thinks his son is The Lion

and he can't keep it secret anymore.

This is it, gentlemen.

After three years of hard work,

we've got the break we've been waiting for.

We've received a credible tip

concerning the whereabouts of The Lion.

Now watch your step in there.

This guy's a bomb specialist

wanted for assassinations

all over the world.

Tom, you've been living and breathing

this guy for three years.

It's your show. You're first in.

Let's do it.

All right, guys. Listen up. You heard Duvall.

This guy's a loose cannon.

Stay alert. Cover your partner's ass.

We'll all be opening up presents

by tomorrow morning with the families.

- Got it?



First strike in position.

Come on, let's go, let's go.

Move, move, move, move!

Excellent. Excellent.

Bedroom clear.

Going to right.

OFFICER 3 ON RADIO... Hallway clear!

Left front living room.

- Living room and kitchen secure.

- RYAN ON RADIO... Ten through the air.

- Tommy, get down to the basement now.

- Coming now.

RYAN... He's on his way now.

Hey, Tommy. This is bad, man.

- Kelly?

No, no, no, no. Stop, stop.

Looks like a perimeter, man.

Looks like 20 pounds of C-4.

- THE LION... Detective Armstrong.

- Who is this?
