Finish him! Don't let me see that face ever again. Hey! Is the bottle compensation or a treat? Do you drink? It depends. What about now? You're up. -We... -We had a good time. I can't remember. -Hello? -Bro, you didn't pick up all night. I thought you turned yourself in. Your brother and your woman are looking for you. -Call them back so they won't worry. -All right. Bo's shift is almost over. I need to make breakfast for him. I have to go. Hey. Nothing happened, right? What's there to worry about? Don't worry. I'm not clingy. Captain Guan. You know me? I kept thinking, "Why does he look so familiar?" You're the detective who arrested that serial killer... and who has a fugitive brother. No wonder you're such a real man. Captain Guan. Captain Guan. Working Hard Isn't Hard Zhou. Tell the technical team the door can be opened...
by pressing the spring against position 24. You're way smarter than I am. You're too good. Found anything? Guan... A tiger doesn't eat roasted chicken. Like I said, it depends on who's feeding it. I know you've been seeing your brother... and have been keeping in touch. Honestly speaking, I was afraid I'd find something at your place. I'm concerned about you. Do what is right. Don't sink any further. Hello. All right. I'll head over now. Is that Guan Hongyu? He doesn't seem to be in cahoots with An Teng. Enhance it. I've sent it to HQ and the institute. But this CCTV's too old, and the light was too dim. The enhancement won't be much better. I'm not sure if it's a coincidence, but none of the CCTVs captured the faces of the three. Not even the CCTV at the entrance? That one's broken. Who's this An Teng? I wonder how the autopsy's going.
The gun An Teng used is a modified T-54. Serial number's gone. It's been sent for ballistics analysis. His car was rented less than a week ago. His wallet contains cash and some handwritten receipts. There are no IDs or bank cards. -There are also two keys. -His cell? He used a prepaid SIM card and made 16 calls. Two of the numbers he called are no longer in use. Take a look. If we inform Captain Guan about this, can we... Captain Zhou, we've got a weird report. Mr. Guan asked for you. -I'll be right there. -All right. Do not tell anyone about this without my permission. Yes, sir. He's Captain Zhou. Please be seated. Go ahead. I got a call this morning. My son's been kidnapped. I was told the ransom is five million. -Did you call your son to verify? -No. You must verify if he's been kidnapped. Well, Captain Zhou, my son, Xiaopeng, was with me when I got the call. It's probably a scam. It's common nowadays.
Ignore it since your son's all right. Be patient. Keep listening. It was a little bit... strange. Peng was out last night, and he drank. He took a cab home. But now his car is missing. If that's the case, we'll process this as a missing vehicle case. All right? I suggest you treat it as a kidnapping. But he's fine. In most kidnapping cases, kidnappers ask for tens of thousands. Very few ask for more than that. Have you heard of a ransom scam of five million? Here, Ya'nan. Sign it. Why should I? Do I have any disciplinary issues? It's because of Guan Hongyu breaking in that night. Sign it. It's just routine. But we have neither supervisor instructions nor Zhou Xun's signature. Why should I sign it? It shows your cooperation. Cooperation? Of course I will cooperate. Go ahead with your "routine." -Is this it? -Yes. The villagers found it half an hour ago.
Tech team has gone to check CCTVs. How's it going? It's in good shape. No dents or scratches. Different prints are found everywhere, so I'm not sure if it'll help. By the way, we got half a shoe print on the armrest. Front right sole. Hey! Drive it back later, but don't return it to Guo yet. But isn't this Guo Peng's lost car? I'm sure there were three people in here before it was abandoned. The shoe print was left by the one in the back seat. This back seat isn't meant for people. To sit there, one needs to crawl in from the front. There's no need to go through the center. This may be just half a shoe print, but you can tell it's at least a size 43. It's big. It's a male's. If it's just to steal the car, why involve so many people? Then they abandoned the car? Guo Peng drank and took a cab. Where was it parked? Chord Bar near Guojiazhuang. It's probably a pub or nightclub. Check how the car ended up here. The key's here. It's too easy to be a car thief.
Okay, that's it. Let's go. What were you doing when Wang Zhige broke into the station? I already told Captain Zhou. After the power outage, Guan came to the lab. We met in the hallway. Wang Zhige chased us, so we ran to the morgue. We kept him outside the room until backup came. Then we left. Based on the bullet marks in the hallways... Wang Zhige fired a total of five shots all the way to the morgue. None hit you. Too bad for you? And he didn't fire after he entered the lab. Perhaps he's not confident his 9 mm can go through the 16-centimeter-thick door. Here's the thing. It was then that Captain Zhou and Guan Hongyu met in the stairwell and had a fight. The situation was dire, so Captain Zhou went on to help others instead of pursuing him. Based on their brief interaction, we know that Guan Hongyu came from upstairs. It's possible he was at the lab. This matches his claim of saving Captain Guan.
This is all so touching. I have nothing to do with that. We suspect that Guan and Wang are collaborators. So both of them came to kill us. That was close. Ya'nan, cooperate with me. Your baseless suspicion has nothing to do with me. How do I cooperate? Guan Hongyu could be the one who intercepted Wang... from chasing you two. How would I know that, Captain Liu? Wang's still in the morgue. Why don't you ask him? -Anything missing? -No. Did you go to Chord Bar last night? Officer... you're asking the obvious... Yes. I was at the bar. Alone? With a few friends. Why's the key in there? Why is the car key in the car? Oh, that. I think I gave the key to the valet so he'd get my car since I was a bit drunk. I went to throw up. Then I hailed a cab. Why did you say your car was missing if you had a valet service? I was drunk and couldn't remember in the morning. Officers, we're sorry. It was a mistake. We're sorry to have troubled you.
Since the car's been found... I guess that ransom call must be a scam. Let's not waste any more of your time. No, wait a minute. This isn't that simple. Based on the Guojiazhuang parking lot footage, someone drove your car out at around 1:50 a.m. Once out of the lot, the car was stopped. The CCTV shows that two men forced themselves into the car, then left the Guojiazhuang area. The footage from Xiaoqiaozhuang shows that the car passed by its entrance at around 2:30 a.m. Then a Songhuajiang van without a license plate left the area. My assumption is that they switched the vehicle then. Officers, I still don't understand. You mean-- We think the phone call you got was from the kidnappers. But they got the wrong person. So who got kidnapped? Chord Bar is closed now. We called them to check for missing employees. For now... we have to presume the kidnappers don't know they got the wrong person.
We need your cooperation. Cooperation? Sure. Your cell? -My cell phone? -Yes. Hey. Pretend that your son has really been kidnapped. Ya'nan. You're a veteran on the team. I've watched you work your way up from being an intern to being the chief coroner. It's only a matter of time before Guan Hongyu gets caught. I don't want you to get implicated. Captain Liu, how many times do I need to say this? Believe it or not, we didn't see Guan Hongyu that night. Even if he wanted to see me or Captain Guan, he didn't need to break in. Don't get upset. -This is not personal. -Is that so? Have you really thought about this? Think about it. Even if he was really here or if he's connected to Wang Zhige, what was he here for? His case files, of course. Exactly. His case files. Will copying or destroying his files acquit him? If not... have you thought about why he's so keen on getting the files?
Well... Think it through. Stop wasting our time. I know little about his case. But it's obvious that there are issues in his case. Whether it's you or the "we" you've mentioned that represents the bosses, it's better to focus on the case... than make things difficult for our own people. I still have work to do. Hold on, Ya'nan. Aspirin does work on pregnancy symptoms, but it might not be good for the baby. I've gone down that road before. For the baby's sake... stop taking it. Thanks for your advice. We have seen how you show concern for your child. Captain Guan. Hey, Ya'nan. Is An Teng's autopsy done? We're working on it. And his personal items? Tech team has them. I can double-check. Captain Liu knows I'm pregnant. -How? -I have no idea. Maybe he guessed. We need to come up with a story. What are you doing? Reception told me someone's looking for me. Captain Guan. Hello. You're...
My brother didn't come home last night, and I can't find him. I thought I'd come here and see if you can help. I see. Let's talk inside. You don't recognize me now? Take a seat. I'm sorry. You can't smoke here. It's fine to keep things casual. But the thing is... don't pretend you don't know me. I'm an ex-captain. I'm not even considered an officer right now. I can't open a case for your allegedly missing brother. I don't care. I know you won't let me down. Just like last night. Were you at Chord Bar last night? Come on. You know the answer. Captain Guan-- What is it? The kidnapper called again. I've got a pen and paper. Go ahead. Five million. Small bills of 50 or 100 and nonsequential. Got that? Well, let me talk to my son. I need to know he's still alive. Guo, your son's life is in my hands.
It's not up to you. But I don't even know if he's alive. Why should I pay? What if you already killed him? Did you call the cops? No, no. I didn't. I just want to get this over with. Hello? Hello? He hung up. What the hell? -Did you get it? -No. It's an IP network. -The IP address? -A processor was used. Probably a VPN. External IP network proxy... Often shields IP addresses. A processor is used in such cases. Officer. Look. I've done enough to cooperate with you. This matter has nothing to do with me. If this continues, I might spill the beans. You're right. Thank you for your help. Please hang on a little longer. It'll be a good deed if we can save the hostage. You're doing a good deed. What's this? Looking for someone? I'm looking for Captain Guan. Are you his friend? I just met him yesterday. And you are... Gao Ya'nan. I'm his colleague.
-Hello. I'm Ren Di. -Hey, you. -Who are you looking for? -I... She's Captain Guan's friend. Guan. She's your friend? Here's the autopsy report. CHANGFENG POLICE CORONER'S AUTOPSY REPORT Hey. Why is Guo Peng here? How did your brother go missing? Bo worked the night shift yesterday. You forgot? We saw him on our way out. When I went home this morning, I realized he didn't come home. His friends have no idea where he is. Bo doesn't socialize much. In fact... he ought to be calling me since I didn't go home. You didn't check your... I mean... Chord Bar? It's not open yet. I called my boss, but he didn't answer. He's probably sleeping. Oh, dear... There you are. So, uh... what's your opinion on that? Read An Teng's autopsy report. Oh, by the way, tech team's working on the hostage's photo. -And... -Where is it? Zhou has it. Come here, Zhou. -Is the photo ready? Great. -It's printed.
Look at the background. Now we know that the hostage is a waiter at Chord Bar. His name is Ren Bo, 23 years old. A native of Hebei. Presumably, he was the valet getting Guo Peng's car when he was thought to be its owner and got kidnapped. In the photo, his mouth is covered with masking tape. He probably didn't have a chance to speak to the kidnappers at all. They're unaware of the mix-up. I believe we should continue keeping it under control. No wonder I find him familiar. Now that we've cleared the air, it has nothing to do with us. Please, Mr. Guo. We're sincerely asking for your assistance. For the hostage's safety, the kidnappers must not know this. Why? The kidnappers picked you as their target because they know your father's financial ability. Once they find out their hostage's family can't pay the ransom... They'll get another victim? That's possible. But if they're cruel enough...
they might kill the hostage. Like you, I want to beat them up. You have to control yourself. They're not legally obliged to help us. We asked for their help to get more time to save the hostage. Ren Bo's sister is a singer at Chord Bar. They're poor. They rely on each other. -They probably can't afford the ransom. -Mr. Guan. We enlarged the photo. Part of the window is covered with craft paper. I've seen this photo. The angle of the sunlight suggests that the room is facing southwest. The floor and walls are falling apart. Those tiles are rare now. Probably a house pending demolishment. From its design, it's most likely in the old town area. Whether the kidnapper rents or owns it, it will be demolished soon. Am I right? Captain, do you think we should-- Right, send it to the institute for enhancement. The chair was likely bolted to the ground. If the photo's enhanced, we can probably see how.
It will help us. -I'll go right now. -All right. The kidnappers switched vehicles in Xiaoqiaozhuang. Check out the nearby districts. I'll bring some men with me. Guan. Any ideas besides letting Guo talk to them? Let's see if we can get him to pay the ransom first, assuming that the kidnapper won't actually get the money. However wealthy he may be, it isn't easy to shell out five million. So, we have to trouble you, Consultant Guan, to sincerely ask for their help. In An Teng's autopsy report, aside from the laceration inflicted by your gun's handle, which can be considered slightly gory, there are no other highlights. His belongings and the bar's CCTV are likely being processed by the tech team. So, as to when I should join the investigation, please consider it carefully, Captain Zhou. Ren Di came to the station. How will you clean this up? You're good. A fling when your girlfriend's pregnant? It's not like that.
I was drunk. Nothing happened. It's true. Both of us had too much to drink and ended up on the same bed. Nothing happened. I'm serious. Ren Di's brother was kidnapped. She can't pay the ransom. They might kill him anytime. Focus on solving the case. Get the hostage out first. Right. I deeply empathize with the situation... you'll be facing tonight. Captain Guan. Captain Guan. Looking for me? The name of the guy I killed, An Teng, is fake. For now, let's continue to call him that. His fingerprint and DNA tests are pending. But the ballistics results reveal that his type 54 pistol matches the murder weapon in another unsolved case. -The Xicheng case? -Yes. The deceased is Yu Songtang. He's a repeat robber. He was active mainly in Xicheng, Haigang, and our area. But three years ago, he was shot to death on Dongtianhou Street. The weapon is the same gun as An Teng's. I've got the file with the autopsy report.
Take a look. We might find leads on An Teng's true identity. That case was three years ago. Just because it's the same gun... we can't know for sure that An Teng killed him. To be honest... I got nothing as well. I'm counting on you. Guan Hongyu might be able to give us some leads. Hey. What was that? He's still here? I've checked all the contacts on my phone. I can't find anybody who can lend me money. Five million. To Guo Peng's dad, it's a matter of one property. But to people like us... Where do I get five million? After all these years of being a singer... not even one or two friends can help? What are you saying? I have friends. Many of them. Men like Guo Peng... I'll just sleep with them. I'll charge 5,000 a night. I can earn enough if I sleep with 1,000 men. What about you? Shouldn't you pay me 5,000, too? That's not what I meant. I'm trying to think of a way. Calm down. We'll do our best. Do you remember? Last night?
Remember what? Guo Peng's cap. Cap? Bo. Bo. Yes, brother. Where is Peng's car? It's parked over there. Turn left and then... -Go get it. -Sure. -Sorry, brother. -Watch it. That's my younger brother. Younger brother? We're family. Bye. Could it be... That's right. Because of you, they mistook Bo for Guo Peng. Captain Guan, trying your best won't do. You have to bring Bo back! Ren Di. Ren Di. Ren Di, you can't go. You have to provide us with leads. I can't do much. I need to work for the ransom. If I get lucky, I might meet one or two rich guys. Hey. Shouldn't you see her off? It isn't what you think. That's Guan Hongyu in the mask. He didn't make contact with anyone? This is An Teng's accomplice. His face can't be seen. Identity is unknown, too. Rewind. Stop. Zoom in here. Vice Captain Liu, do you know him? Thanks for your cooperation. Be mindful of your safety.
Avoid going outside. Okay. Officer Zhou, can I have your number? Let's hang out when you're free. You can reach me by calling the station. -Okay. -Don't worry. -I'll keep you posted. -Mr. Guan. You have to save Bo at all costs. You owe me that. Captain Guan, you don't have to see me off. Wait... What's up, beautiful? I'm off to work. Give me a lift if it's on your way. Oh, yes, it's on my way. Jun. I'm sorry to hear about your brother. Five million... You know me. Even if I pawn and sell everything here, it won't be enough. Take this. Take it as your two-year advance. That's the best I can do for you. It's up to you if you want to come back to work. Ren Di, you're next. I'm coming. You came back alive. Were you followed? I've checked all the contacts on my phone. I can't find anybody who can lend me money.
Where do I get five million? Because of you, they mistook Bo for Guo Peng and kidnapped him. Trying your best won't do.
