Excuse me. Sorry. I'm sorry.

Excuse me. Coming through.

Tonight, so-called

magician Lionel Shrike

is making another sad

attempt for attention

by performing what he calls

an impossible feat.

The safe is made of

the strongest iron.

It can't be sawed through or pried.

Yet, Lionel Shrike thinks

he's able to escape.

Dad! Dad!

Hey, buddy.

You made it, huh?

Now, see that seat there?

It's the best

seat in the house.

Is Lionel Shrike the kind

of magician who can pull this off?

Or is he actually

in over his head?

We'll see about that.

- What's the matter?

- I don't want you to go.

Dylan, come on.

We talked about this.


This is what I do.

I got to prove all

those naysayers wrong.

Okay? Besides...

I always keep

something up my sleeve.

Now, got your watch

like your dad's?

- Okay. How many seconds?

- Three hundred.

Three hundred. Maybe a few less.


I love you so much.

Okay. See you later, big man.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Lionel Shrike!

Will he be able

to hold his breath?

Will he be able to

somehow escape the safe?

Three, two, one...

Two, three,

four, five, six,

seven, eight...

296... 297, 298, 299, 300.

303, 304...

It's five minutes now,

and we have not seen or heard

anything from Lionel Shrike yet.



Dad! Dad!

Let go of me!


No! Dad!

Dad! Let go!

Find him!

The Eye.

It may not lie...

But don't think for a moment

that it can't be lied to.

Seeing is believing.

But is it truth?

People see the Horsemen

as noble Robin Hoods. Are they?

Or are they common thieves?

Depends on your point of view.

Here's what you know.

They robbed a bank in Paris

from a stage in Las Vegas.

They fleeced

an insurance magnate

of hundreds of

millions of dollars

and disappeared from

a roof in New York.

Always showering their

devoted fans with money.

Here's what you don't know.

They left one man behind.

Framed. Holding the bag. Me.

Are you listening, Horsemen?

When you emerge, and you will,

I will be there waiting.

Because mark my words,

you will get what's coming to you.

In ways you can't expect.

But very much deserve.

Because one thing I believe in

is an eye for an eye.

Welcome, Daniel Atlas.

Who am I speaking to?

I asked to see the face

behind all of this.

You've asked many questions.

And registered many complaints.

You can rest assured

that we've heard you.

Have you? Because I don't...

- Trust?

- No.

Your leader?

Your fellow Horsemen?

Perhaps even us?

I don't like that we've been

living in hiding for a year.

I don't like that every message

I get from Dylan is,

"Wait. Be patient.

The Eye has a plan."

Wait. Be patient.

The Eye has a plan.

This is games

and it's not working for me.

You feel it is you who should be

leading the Horsemen, not Dylan.

If that is what you desire,

stay the course.

Trust that your unique talents

and remarkable mind

will not go unrecognized.

We have a new mission

for the Horsemen.

Dylan has a plan

and will gather you together soon.

Now leave!

...North Carolina,

Florida, Maryland, Maine.

We're talking the entire

eastern seaboard.

I need to see some results.

Oh, hey. Oh, sorry.

Just real quick. Can I have you

for a couple of minutes?

I'm right in the middle

of something, Dylan.

No, I know. It's okay. Hey. Hey,

everybody. Sorry. Sorry about that.

Call the mayor.

Thanks a lot.

Twins, huh? Good.

Is he coming?

Look, I wouldn't have

brought you out of that meeting

unless it was something important.

It's about the Horsemen.

Somethings happening here

and it's happening now.

Message boards.
