Welcome to Moscow.

Please enjoy your stay.

- The boss is expecting you.

- Right this way.


'Kay, Gerry.

We have no visuals inside.

It's on you now.


Sala'am Aleikum.

Take a seat.

You've traveled a long way.

Please. I insist.

You'll have to forgive

the less-than-tasteful decor.

The fancy hotels are all booked

for the anti-terrorism summit.

Is that it?

All of it?

Gentlemen, please.


We're all friends here.


I understand

you are anxious, here,

in your enemy's territory.

But I assure you that is

precisely why you are safe.

No one would dream of looking for you

here, right under their noses. Hmm?

Of course mistrust is healthy

when conducting

these sorts of transactions,

but rest assured, gentlemen,

nobody wants to die today.

We are honest criminals.

Here it comes.

I'll show you mine,

if you show me yours.


You're happy?


I'll take your word for it.

- Don't forget this.

Without it, she's useless.

- What is this?

- We celebrate our new partnership.

There is no need for this.

I insist.



- What's going on?

- I don't know. Something's not right.

He should've confirmed by now.

We need to go in.

We're not supposed

to be engaging at all.

Track and confirm only.

- Our business is concluded.

- Of course.

What is it?

What the hell just happened?

I'm not sure.

Sleep well, chaps.

What is that?

A homing beacon's

been activated.

What? From where?

From in there.

Now, I know this must look bad.

There's actually

a very funny story.

You didn't let me

get to the funny part.

That was definitely gunfire.

- Agent Cooper, stand down!

- You want to stop me, shoot me.

- Goodbye.

- Wait.

My finger's on

the trigger button.

If you shoot me, this whole

place becomes a memory.

Now, lower your weapon

and walk away.

- No.

- What do you mean, "no"?

I mean, "no."

I will not lower weapon.

You do understand what will

happen if I push this button?


Okay, so just to be clear,

you're perfectly happy for me

to kill us, your friends, your family,

and millions of innocent people,

have I got that right?


Because button does

nothing without key.

That's a good point.

You hit good...

For a lady.



FBI! Drop your weapon!

Agent Cooper?

Agent Cooper, come in.


Who are you and what

are you doing here?

Simon Templar.

And, at the moment, hiding.

Well, Simon, you're interfering

with a government operation.

Special agent Cooper, FBI.

Since when does the FBI

have jurisdiction in Russia.

It's a joint task force.

- Who's coming?

- Coming?

You set off a homing device

on the nuke.

- Who are you trying to contact?

- Interpol.

- Bullshit.

- Look, agent Cooper,

we can sit here with you

continuing to not believe me

and be turned into Swiss cheese

or we can, I don't know,

do something to try and survive.

Wait, wait, wait!

What are you doing?

Making the sensible choice.

- Cover me.

- Wait. Stop.

Son of a b*tch!

I need some backup in here.

Only ten in clip, rookie.

You want to reload? I wait.

- You're welcome.

- You're under arrest.

- Are you serious?

- Always.

- And what's the charge?

- I don't know. I'll think of something.

Agent Cooper?

Agent Cooper, we're in.

Better late than never.

But don't worry.

Situation's under control.

We just need

to place him under arrest.


Son of a...

The Saint?

Patricia, perfect timing.

My specialty.

How's your Russian adventure?

Very Russian. Very adventurous.

And, uh...

Not quite over.

Escape route's on your phone.


Where am I going?
