Tonight, investigators are

questioning the credibility

of those clinical trials.

I'm very angry. I can't

believe doctors could betray

so many people.

I was part of the initial test

group for the drug Vypraxilin.


I can say without a doubt it was

probably the worst decision

I've ever made in my life.

These people knowingly

put out inaccurate information

and they were being selective

in the facts about the case.

She looked at me

and then collapsed.

Her mouth filled with blood

and it was terrifying.

In fact, an investigation by the fda

found no evidence of false data

from Pierson pharmaceuticals.

This is the third death

attributed to the medication,

with many more claims

surfacing each day.

They need

to be held accountable.

We should just leave

and go to London for a while.

Wouldn't that seem guilty

if I just left the country?

And what would you tell

them if they accuse you?

The truth?

Well, I've faced inquiries before.

I can...

I'm not gonna run away.

I'm not talking about

running away, Arthur.

I'm talking about

clearing your head,

getting out of town

together like we said.



Any updates? Just give

him a little privacy.

Don't talk to me.

Yeah, you tell Dr. Shuman to get

back in the lab immediately

and get this thing sorted out.

Immediately. You do it, or

I'll get someone else who can.

Just do it.


Okay, look, I got to

get back to the...

I'm going back to the office.

They can't do anything unless

I'm there holding their hand.

Why don't you ever consider

anything I say to you?

It's your greatest fault.

You know that?

You know what, maybe I'll just

leave town without you, Arthur.

Come on.

Graham will take you home

and I'll see you tonight.

Okay. Emily, come on.

Stop being a child. Grow up.

F*** you.

Let her go.


She'll come around.

Our exposure's limited at best.

Oh, yeah?

Well, there's no such thing

as limited exposure.

Got the deposition tomorrow

and I need you to cover this.

Get Jake Coburn in legal. I

want a strategy before I leave.

Sir, we advise you against answering

any questions at this time.

Duly noted.



Where the hell is she?


I'm gonna grab you some dinner.

I'll call in the usual.

Don't step anywhere inside this house.

Don't touch anything.

Get security up here right now.

Yes, sir.

So there was no more contact

after you left the park?

I figured it was just another

call for attention. That's all.

Yeah, it could be.

Jane is the advisor we retained.

Private org. Kidnap and rescue.

I should advise you, sir,

to involve the FBI.

I've employed you

so I don't have to.

Right now, your girlfriend

is alone and scared

and praying that someone

will save her life.

In 11 hours, Emily

could be home or dead.

If this is gonna work you're gonna

have to trust me. You understand?

So what are the next steps?

The tech team is working on

your phone to trace the sender.

When these people reach out again

and we know what they want,

Jane will help color who they are.

They need us to open up.

All confidential passwords, everything

will need to be transparent.

Tell me, are they likely

to harm her, hurt her?


You don't sugarcoat

your responses, do you?

Why the f*** would I do that?

What do they want?

Two and a half million

dollars, unmarked.

Octavia gallery by 1:00 P.M.

or they cut her open.

Can your team prep by 1:00?

It'll be tight. It's lunchtime.

There's lots of exits.

We can expect

heavy foot traffic.

We'll have snipers

cover the exterior.

Snipers? We don't need

snipers. I've got the cash.
