If I talk to you, they'll find out and I'll be dead.
We'll keep you safe. Word is, Beady has a guard in his pocket.
You've compromised our station!
Someone could've been killed because of you.
They killed my dog. My sister's in the hospital.
And who's in the middle of it all? Good ol' McKay.
I was supposed to get him out of trouble
and all I've done is got him in deeper.
You tell them about all that Beady stuff
and they'll have you for McKay's murder.
I take it you've been here all night again? Yeah.
I knew this job wouldn't be an easy ride,
but investigating my boss's murder? I didn't see that one coming.
How are we even going to begin to get over this?
We find the scum that did this, that's a start.
I've heard nothing. They'll have everyone out looking for him.
You think they'd have told me by now, if they'd found him?
Don't be worrying, they'll get Beady soon.
You better hope not.
That's the last thing I want!
They get hold of that dirtbag...
he'll be after saving his own skin, and he'll drop me right in it.
Taken out just yards from a station full of Gardai?
Whoever did this is tapped.
Or has balls of steel.
Detective Inspector Lonergan. The brass did tell you I was coming?
He was definitely at the funeral?
Yeah, lurking. Asking questions about the boss.
Well, he could be McKay's replacement. Hm.
Lads, this is DI Lonergan, he is the newly assigned SIO.
So this is the route the assailant took out of Stanford Road.
Less than two minutes after the stabbing, CCTV picks him up
running down Bridge Lane into Bell Street,
after that we think he cut through the bus terminal.
Well, that's all we have.
There's no sign that he got the bus, so...
So, why did he go through the bus terminal?
Because it's a short cut to the Ridge.
Or he could've been picked up by an accomplice.
And we haven't ruled that out yet.
We've run checks on all vehicles at the bus terminal that afternoon.
They're all accounted for, yeah. Mm-hm.
Well, I'd like all the footage you've got rechecked,
and enhanced if needs be.
Sharon, will you take care of that, please?
Yes, of course. The murder weapon? Any news on that?
We've had teams out scanning the area since it happened,
but nothing yet.
I don't know about you, lads, but it's very nippy in here, no?
I get the feeling this trail is going well and truly cold.
Beady Burke. Who's he?
Beady Burke. Bane of our lives. He's gone to ground.
We arrested one of his main couriers this morning.
Got him stewing in the cell. Why would he want McKay dead?
The boss pretty much closed him down,
and that's why he targeted Garda Brennan...
for information. Mm-hm.
I repeat. What would killing McKay get Burke?
Except the Guards sniffing all over him.
Who knows what goes through some scrote's excuse for a brain?
Er, we should.
It's our job.
I suggest we check it all again, just to be sure.
See, emotions are obviously running a little high here,
and maybe you missed something in your efforts
to apprehend the perpetrator.
Oh, I can assure you that the team has been professional at all times.
Well, let's just check again to be sure.
And I suggest we wait until Garda Brennan comes in
for the reconstruction. What? That hasn't been done yet? Why not?
He's just come out of hospital. I don't care, he's our only witness.
And the press still think that Garda Brennan was the target? Yes.
OK. Let's keep it that way.
I assume everyone in here knows the situation.
I was going to tell them this morning.
Tell us what?
The boss was using Davey Webb off the book.
Davey was rejected by CHIS, but despite this Superintendent McKay
had several unauthorised conversations and meetings with him.
And as a result... What? You sure?
And as a result, he was being investigated by the NBCI.
I knew it. I knew he was up to something.
Look, whatever the boss did, I'm sure he'd good reason,
and it's definitely not for us to judge,
especially when he's not here to defend himself. But...
Listen, Rory, it is under investigation.
Let's leave it at that.
But, yes, Davey could be the key to this.
He was piggy in the middle with Laser and Beady,
so he's got to know something.
So bring him in. We had thought of that,
but it is kind of tricky since he's been missing for two weeks.
Oh, have you spoken to his brief?
Sweetheart... I'm fine.
That's what I said when I lost your dad.
I do understand.
Dad died of cancer.
What is this? Six degrees of separation?
I assumed you knew Claire was the brief.
It was in the file. Must've missed that part.
I know it looks bad.
Our paths did cross, you know, at Templemore. Briefly.
Oh, he had quite a reputation down there.
"One of the good guys," they said. He was.
Yeah, don't go ordering that halo just yet.
Sir, with respect... I need to see her. As soon as.
Well, I don't think that's a good idea.
You know, maybe I should talk to her first.
You two are close?
Well, she's a colleague.
Best leave the interview to me. Why? I don't know her.
I can play hardball. And maybe hardball isn't exactly
what a grieving widow needs right now.
Why? Why did they have to send someone like him?
Decent job, all his own teeth and a charmer to boot.
Just your type, I'd say. The man's an arsehole. Excuse me.
He was always so straight.
We don't know if he did anything wrong.
He was being investigated.
Guilty till proven innocent now, is it?
He was obviously hiding something.
I had a gut feeling. So you say.
It didn't stop you sucking up to him, though, did it?
Just doing my job, Garda Holden. You should try it.
You're a piece of work, you know that.
He was obviously doing something dodgy.
Deserved to die, did he? Don't be so stupid.
Come on, Sean, if Davey wasn't on CHIS, they've got to investigate.
So is that it? It's all settled?
We all know for sure McKay was dirty?
They'll want me to come in.
Want me to walk through what happened,
see if I remember anything.
They can't make you do that.
We'll get the doctor to sign you off.
He'll put his foot down.
I have to go in, Mammy.
Well, you better know what you're going to say.
I told you, it's just...
They'll be wanting to trip you up.
If you just stay still.
Sake! I'll finish this myself.
Paudge... Leave me alone!
DI Lonergan will be joining us for the interview later.
We can wait in my office.
The service was beautiful.
Looked like every guard in the country was there.
She won't eat, she won't sleep.
And I just make things worse.
I'm sure you don't.
I don't know what to do, or what to say.
Is there anything?
There were, um, jokes going around Mountjoy when Michael got there.
Word had got out.
Stories about the dead super. That's how he found out.
How is he?
I've a visit coming up next week.
When the only thing you're looking forward to...
is a visit to your son in prison...
Does he look familiar at all?
Your husband was leaning on Beady Burke.
You think he was behind this?
Oh, we don't know. We're... You don't know much, do you?
We're just getting a sense of what James was doing
in the days before the attack...
..if there was anything on his mind.
Concerns about his safety? What?
Did James ever mention to you that he'd been threatened?
Would he have said?
You represent Davey Webb?
You know I do.
Do you have any idea where he might be?
No. Well, have a think.
I lost my husband, not my mental faculties.
You're aware of your husband's relationship with him?
Davey needed help and the Guards wouldn't give it to him.
And you don't find that strange?
Even though your husband was risking his career? And yours?
He wanted to take down Laser Byrne. Clean up the Ridge.
That was his job.
And you would've been patting him on the back,
instead of pointing fingers.
Claire, that's not what we're doing here.
When was the last time you saw him? Davey?
HE LAUGHS That's awfully specific.
He stayed in our flat.
It was just for one night.
He was meant to stay with a retired guard, a friend of James',
but he never showed.
The day he was killed, you left a message on James' phone.
You said... I know what I said.
You were expecting him to be with you.
And instead he goes to the station with Garda Brennan.
My wife would kill me if I did that.
Something pretty big must have been going on.
Is there anything, Claire?
Anything that you think that we should know,
no matter how damaging.
You seriously think I care more about his reputation
than finding out who killed him?
You know how much he meant to us.
Then get out there and find who did this!
Ms Hennessy... Instead of blaming him!
You know, you're the reason this happened.
Ms Hennessy... He couldn't trust any of you.
Is it any wonder he kept it all to himself?
You let him down!
Now showing the suspect Exhibit AK-3,
a bag of wraps that were found in the lining of his coat.
Can you tell us what's in them?
They will be sent away for testing, but, er...
they look suspiciously like heroin.
Can you tell us where you got them from?
When did you last see Beady Burke?
Look, we both know there is enough here to charge you
with intent to supply.
A little co-operation could go a long way.
There's a reward. Totally anonymous, of course.
Why not cash in?
Come on, we could all do with a few extra yoyos.
We can make it worth your while.
Look, he's going down big time
and do you honestly think he cares a rat's arse for the likes of you?
It's over for him. He's finished.
Same goes for you if you don't start talking now.
Where is he?! One chance! That's all you're getting! Sean!
You think you're smart, don't you? Find this funny, do you, pal?
Let's take a break. I'll show you funny!
"All coppers are bastards."
Well, I'll give him two out of ten for originality.
Our best chance to find Beady, down the jacks.
Worth keeping him in any longer?
He's not saying anything, skip. We're wasting our time.
OK, well, you can't force him to spill his guts.
No, but I can do him for supply. Be my guest.
Have a word?
Anything you want to share about McKay? No, nothing.
He made a mistake. He wasn't corrupt,
if that's what you're suggesting. Oh, God forbid.
I get it.
He was the captain.
It's all about the team in this job.
Loyalty. It has to be.
But there comes a point where you're going to have to... I know!
Look, about what I said earlier... I could have you taken off the case.
What's the story with Davey Webb?
Tough life, no angel, but he's a good kid at heart.
I bet my warrant card that he knows something.
Sorry, sir, am I still on the case or what? Yeah.
I may be an arsehole, but I'm not a complete looper.
Where have you put the car keys?
You're not going now. Beady could be out there!
He's not a complete eejit. He'll be steering well clear.
Or waiting to finish the job. Mammy? Come on now.
I won't be long, keep the door locked.
You've already made a statement.
And don't let anyone in, OK?
KNOCK ON DOOR
Paudge not here yet?
He was due here half an hour ago.
Maybe he doesn't want to drop McKay in it?
Your loyalty is commendable, Holden, but if you want to make detective,
you got to think like an investigator, not a lapdog.
Sean, leave it. Sean, don't! Leave it! Don't!
You don't get it, do you?
He saved Davey Webb's life.
We all would've done the same if we had to.
Would we? Yeah.
What about you and McGonigle?
You did what you thought was right, so did McKay.
Sean, let it go. Until we know... He was a good man.
That's all we need to know.
It still feels like he popped out for five minutes. Yeah.
Don't let Lonergan wear you down.
Oh, he won't. Sure, we're BFFs now.
Told you. Your type.
If I had seen him sooner...
If I had known that he was just there... Don't.
No, I can't let him down again, Ange. I really... I can't.
We have to find who did this to him.
ANSWER MACHINE BEEPS
'Hi, darling, I'll be home soon.
'How about I pick us up something for lunch, unless you fancy cooking?
'Love, look, whatever you think, the Guards are doing their best for you.
'For James. You can't blame them for what happened.'
ANSWER MACHINE BEEPS
Any other graves damaged?
No, just his.
Look, you know, it's not totally unheard of -
tanked up on cider, off their head... No, this feels personal.
She's right. It's worth checking out the CCTV again.
OK. I'll do that now.
..any news on the CCTV footage from the bus terminal?
Nothing we hadn't already checked out.
So all hope rests with your partner.
Says his wound's playing up, and he's been told to stay where he is.
He was nearly killed. He can talk, can't he?
Can I go with him?
Thanks, but, um.... Yeah, he could use a friendly face.
Right, latest on Beady?
He is still in hospital, but Katie did say he put on a pound.
Young Luke's got a healthy appetite. Like father, like son. That's it.
She doesn't mean it.
Hope that's the good stuff.
Is there such a thing as bad whiskey?
Here, you never made this much of an effort while he was alive
and, here, I bet you wouldn't if it was me.
Yeah, true. Course we would, son.
Yeah. Where is it? Where did I leave it?
Katie? I've got it!
Don't tell me, bet you it's a lovely shade of scouse?
Going to have to wait and see now, aren't you? Once you have it.
I'll have to go straight on to the hospital afterwards, you know that?
Have they said any more?
Only that they want to keep him under observation,
they might let him come home tonight,
but they said that yesterday, and the day before.
He's all right, that one.
Will you stop saying that? If he was all right, he'd be here.
He has his Uncle Darren looking down on him. True.
Oh, for Jesus... Are we ready? Come on.
You don't have to go back to that station.
Not if you don't want to.
I can't fob them off again.
Mammy, yesterday I was too scared to leave the house.
I can't live like this, and neither can you.
You could take early retirement.
We could sell up.
We'll be away to the country.
As long as you stay quiet about all this nonsense,
you'll get a tidy packet.
Beady'll never find us then.
And what about McKay?
Beady killed him!
I have to tell them what I know. For the boss.
I owe him that, Mammy.
Hello, how are you?
It's Sharon, Paudge. Hey.
Is it safe to hug you or...?
Ah, so long as it's only you.
I missed you something rotten.
I suppose you're all slacking off without me
cracking the whip, so, huh?
Mammy, you wouldn't stick on the kettle, would ya?
We're a bit pushed, Paudge, best we just get on with it.
Well, it's no bother.
Ah, I don't believe it.
Ah, you're jokin'. Here.
Here, just put it there.
No! Some robbin' swine will come along.
Won't last five minutes there, love.
Must be where Darren fell, or there's no point.
We're just going to have to climb over.
You what? In this skirt?
I'm not showing the world what I had for me breakfast!
I told Nikki all this - he wanted to help with Mammy's kidnapping.
Yeah, yeah, we got that, but what else did he say?
That was it.
So it was a silent car journey?
Oh, we passed the time, chewing the cud, like. About what?
About Christmas and that.
Your boss turns up, asking you to come in on your day off,
and you don't ask questions?
You're losing your touch, Paudge.
Well, he said he'd explain once we got to the station.
We saw that.
We've got it on CCTV.
You and him in the car.
It looked pretty serious.
That was no Crimbo chit-chat, was it?
I couldn't tell you.
We pulled up, and the next thing I knew, I was in the ambulance.
It was over in seconds. That's not quite how it was.
I'm just saying, you gave us a description of the attacker.
You seemed pretty clear about it.
I suppose, but... Rory?
Maybe if you had a look, if we showed you. Here.
No, I don't think... I know this is the last thing you want to see,
but it might help jog your memory.
Here we go.
Now, will you take a slice of cake? Huh?
It's OK to talk, you don't have to give a name,
and whatever you say need go no further.
There's been a break-in. Yeah, so?
We have to check it out.
It's probably just a bunch of some bored kids.
Yeah, and this could've been a prank call. We have to go.
You were here, Mrs Brennan... when McKay came to pick up Paudge.
How did he seem to you?
Well, he seemed...
What are you trying to get at here?
You see, I was, er... I was still a bit shaken up.
We just said hello and that was it.
Now, how would everybody like their tea?
Seems a bit strange.
The day his brother-in-law goes into prison, he drops in here
for no particular reason.
Who knows what he was thinking?
He told you. Told me what?
You don't have to cover for him any more.
We know he'd been working off book with Davey Webb,
so if there's anything you can tell us about it.
You mean you didn't know?
You don't know much, do you?
Not a day goes by, son.
Not a day goes by.
Would've been an uncle.
A very, very proud uncle.
Yeah, as long as it didn't cost him anything. Tightarse. Keith.
What? Come on, it was true, Ma. He'd always be robbin' me smokes...
and me beer.
Never a truer word said.
Have you nothing good to say for your brother?
He caught me cheating once. Before an exam.
I was writing all the notes on my arm.
Darren starts giving out to me.
I was better than that, I was letting the family down.
I was supposed to be the brains of the outfit.
Told me never, ever do that again.
Next time, he'd rob the exam paper for us.
Heart of gold, that fella, huh? Heart of gold.
Company. What's going on?
We're swimming, what's it bleedin' look like?
We're going. Says who?
This is private property.
You don't have permission to be here.
To grieve for me dead son, who was murdered right here?!
We're not going anywhere until we're good and ready,
so you can shag off and leave us alone.
We can't do that, Mrs Kiely. Well, come in and get us, then.
CCTV footage in a cemetery? I despair.
Key holder's not answering.
Right. We'll arrest them, then.
Well, they haven't taken anything or broken... Yet.
Remember, it's the Kielys we're talking about -
give them an inch and they'll have your kidneys.
What's blue, smells like pork and has two extra holes in it? Keith!
What? I'm only messing. Honestly, I'm crying on the inside.
..we're sorry about your man, McKay.
Lousy way to go.
Him in his prime an' all. Ma!
Had a lovely pair of eyes on him. All right.
Look, we have a patrol to finish, it might take us...
..I don't know, about 20 minutes before we're back.
Yeah, we'll be gone by then. I won't.
I've to see Luke, I'm not staying here all night. 20 minutes.
Oh, stop. Go back there.
That's Davey Webb!
Maybe someone made him do it.
To stir things up, throw us off the scent.
Come on. Seriously?
You said Davey was going to college, wasn't he?
Trying to turn it round.
Until his house got burnt out because word got round
that he was talking to the Guards.
So who knows where his head's at?
I didn't mean to scare you.
Are you all right?
We were worried sick. Where have you been?
I'm so sorry.
I know. I know.
I'm telling you. There's no respect.
You sound like one of those old guys about to retire.
What about the Kielys this morning? They were grieving!
Little toerags slagging off McKay!
How was Paudge?
Grand. It was lovely to see him.
Well? No joy?
Couldn't have been more unhelpful if he tried.
That is not fair. You were pressuring him.
He tried to make him watch the footage of the stabbing.
You did what? This is a murder inquiry. I know that!
Are you just naturally stupid?
As far as we know, he could've been just as off book as McKay.
Paudge?! Take the blinkers off, Sharon.
You just don't give up, do you?
You had no luck tracking Beady? Shame.
Congratulations. Well done.
The boss'd be so proud of his team(!)
Can you not try to pull yourself together, for him?
Now, if you're not too busy tearing into each other,
you might like to know there's been a development.
You can call the dogs off Beady for now.
We have a new suspect. Davey Webb.
When did this happen?
I'm going to be briefing the next unit in the incident room shortly,
if you guys want to join.
Look, I want you guys down the Pier tonight,
getting drunk, having a laugh.
Looks like I'm not the only one who could do with a break.
Incident room. Five minutes.
Why didn't you stay in Galway?
I've, um... I've got an uncle... he works on a farm.
I hung out there for a bit.
How'd you hear?
I've been trying to call you.
That's the main thing.
Did he say anything to you?
The last time you saw him. About what?
I don't know. Anything.
Was he in trouble? No.
Well, we should go to the station after this. Make a statement.
I'm not talking to the Guards. No way. Davey, please.
I can't. Talking to the Guards, that's how all this started.
But they haven't got a clue who it was.
Do you have sugar for this?
Jesus, Bridge, I think I pulled something
boosting you over that wall.
You saying I'm fat? No! Careful, Da. Just... What?
You know what, we should have stayed there. Let them arrest us.
No, no, no. Fair play to them. Fair play.
Anyway, Katie had to go to the hospital to see little Luke.
Right, I'm done remembering. It's time to forget.
Yeah, me too.
Katie. What's wrong?
Look, slow down. Is it about the baby?
He's what? When?
He's coming home.
Our little Lukey is going to be all right.
See, I told you, our Darren's done the business.
Good on you, Dazzler!
To Luke Kiely. No, no.
Now is not the time to be getting locked.
Look at the state of the place.
My grandson is not coming back to this kip hole.
How did you know I was here?
I saw you today. Your office.
And followed me? Why?
Look, I've got to go.
You do know something. No.
You owe James. After all he did for you!
After all he did for me? They won't stop looking for you.
They know you stayed in ours and that he was helping you.
At least come and look at the footage, you might recognise him.
Footage? It's all on CCTV.
He went straight for him. Yeah.
How do you know that?
Leave me alone!
Here's to the boss. ALL: The boss.
You know, Bridget Kiely fancied him. True, Bridge had the hots for him.
Well, who didn't?
You'd have to be blind not to. Not me.
Me neither. Not so sure about Garda Holden here.
Well, he was good-looking. Handsome. Very nice.
We were undercover once, it was some manky old waste ground.
I think it was a drug bust. And I was new...
and he turns to me and he says, "Look, if anyone comes along,
"we're just going to have to start snogging,
"just pretend that we're a couple." Pretend?
He was a happily married man. And did they? Come along.
What goes on undercover... ALL: ..stays undercover!
He ruined my life! No! He did everything he could to help!
Chloe is blind!
Because of him. Because of your precious husband.
Why are you here?
Come to kill me too, finish off the job?
You don't need to do this!
What's that behind your back? Do you think I'm stupid?
Don't even think about it!
It's over, Davey. Give it to me! No.
Give it to me! Please. I need...
Car keys, get your car keys!
You won't get away. You're driving.
No, I'm not going anywhere.
Move. You're going to do exactly what I say.
A killer is still at large, but the investigators lack leads. The Kielys mark the anniversary of Darren's death. Grieving Claire is unaware of the danger an intruder poses. Wounded Paudge proves uncooperative.
