1 EXT. MADRID. APOSTOL’S HOUSE. DAYEXT. MADRID. APOSTOL’S HOUSE. DAY.

1

A car pulls up at a large, palatial house in Madrid.

Apostol’s house. JOEL STEADMAN gets out.

He approaches the door. Rings.

Nothing. No answer.

STEADMAN leaps over a wall. Into a small courtyard. He can

see through modernist windows into the house, but no lights

are on, he can see nothing.

STEADMAN approaches a small door at the back.

It’s open.

He walks through.

INT. MADRID. APOSTOL’S HOUSE. DOWNSTAIRS. DAY. 3

He enters, walks through the kitchens at the back.

Into the main living area where the party once took place.

Empty.

Then he sees her.

The HOUSEKEEPER lying dead at the bottom of the stairs.

4

INT. MADRID. APOSTOL’S HOUSE. UPSTAIRS/BEDROOM. DAY. 4

STEADMAN takes out his gun, walks up the stairs.

Down the corridor.

To a room where the door is open.

It is a bedroom. Large, decadent.

STEADMAN gags.

On the bed is APOSTOL, naked astride his young mistress. But

both are dead.

His neck has been sliced, his blood has poured over the

sheets.

Her neck also sliced. Their dead eyes bore into each other.

Cigarette burns on his arms.

Cuts on his face. Signs of torture.

His face in pure burnt agony.

THE NIGHT MANAGER

5 INT. PRIVATE JET. MID-FLIGHT. DAY. 5

PINE stares out the window of the private jet. Mountains

below, a clear day. ROPER opposite. FRISKY and TABBY in

front.

ROPER receives something on his tablet. Stares at it.

Preoccupied. PINE notices.

PINE:

What is The Haven?

ROPER:

Place in the mountains. A little

venture of mine. You were in the

army weren’t you?

PINE:

Yes. Iraq.

ROPER:

So you’ll be very much at home.

Beat. ROPER still stares at his tablet.

ROPER (CONT’D)

By the way. Next time no fisticuffs

unless I say so. There’ll be CCTV

pictures of you all over the

Istanbul press after that little

show at the hotel. I prefer my

operations to be quiet.

PINE:

The CCTV didn’t extend as far as

the rear. Twelve cameras out front,

three at the side but none at the

back. I checked.

ROPER:

Well aren’t you the top pupil.

He stares at him. Suspicion is suddenly in his eyes.

He pushes the tablet across to PINE. Pine looks.

It is a photograph of the papers that Pine stole from Roper’s

office. It has APOSTOL’s notes scribbled on it. PINE fakes

ignorance.

PINE:

What is it?

The Night Manager ep 5

ROPER:

It’s an account summary of the

entire operation. A complete list

of the people who are cashflowing

the deal, and whose arses you so

successfully licked in that hotel.

Summary of expenses. Names of

consultants, profit margins, the

whole shooting match. And yet

somehow this found its way into the

hands of a British law enforcement

officer called Angela Burr.

Beat. Dangerous.

ROPER (CONT’D)

Now here’s the problem. I happen to

know that only two people in the

world have this list in their

possession. Sandy Langbourne. And

me. So how did Angela Burr get it?

PINE stares.

PINE:

Would Langbourne betray you?

ROPER:

Anyone can betray anyone Jonathan.

You should know that.

PINE stares at the list.

PINE:

Someone helped her decode it.

He looks at the handwriting.

ROPER:

Our Spanish lawyer friend. That’s

why he’s no longer with us.

PINE stares across. Beat. ROPER sits, stewing, troubled, the

trapped animal.

PINE:

You should call off the sale.

ROPER:

Oh they’d love that. Those

Whitehall suits in the foyer. I

don’t give up that easy. Just have

to plug the leak. Someone on the

inside. Langbourne. Or Corkoran. Or

one of the heavies. Or you.
