You heard my demands. I'll surrender... with Guo Peng once Bo's safe. You won't find me before then. By the way, Captain Guan, I have to thank you. I've learned a lot these past two days. Hello? Now that's a rich guy. Got the money in less than an hour. He pulled out all the stops. It's his own child. It's normal to react that way. Demanded that I cooperate. Captain Guan. How dare he... threaten me? Now you've gotten my whole family involved. -Please calm down. -No! The police is fully responsible for my son's kidnapping. If you fail him, I'll have you all fired! He's getting on my nerves. We need Liu for such matters. It's not easy. He has to do his part. Please calm down... Come on... To be fair, he has a point. If we hadn't requested this level of involvement from him... Captain Zhou, we have something. Based on the leads from Guo Peng's bodyguard,
we got surveillance footage from Zhongtian Hotel and saw that Guo Peng was already unsteady on his feet while leaving the hotel with Ren Di. They then drove to a second hotel. Guo Peng had already lost control of his body when he got out of the car. Ren Di barely managed to get him back into the car before they drove off. Moving forward, we may need to expand the search perimeter. Guo Peng is a fairly large man. How did she overpower him? From Zhongtian Hotel's footage, we can see that Guo Peng put something in the tea when Ren Di went to the bathroom. Later, she swapped their teas when he was at the reception area. So it appears he was caught in his own trap. You hear that? I'm not prejudiced against the rich. I was going to get the staff to stall Liu Yan when he went to get gas, but he bought a case of water and opened his trunk. We saw some clothing and food in there. Definitely no hostage.
How many units are on standby? Including me and Wang, six. Don't lose him. The deadline is fast approaching. Tech team is coming with their gear. Remember, timing is key. Determine the best area to monitor mobile signals before they arrive. Have Wang notify the local police when necessary to keep traffic and pedestrians away from the area. Minimize signal traffic near Liu Yan. Yes, sir. -Zhou, vehicle 3. -Roger that. How is the target? All good. We'll switch in about five minutes. Be careful. Zhou, look out behind you. About 50 meters back. Got it. Seems to be following you. It's not one of ours? We have six cars, and that's not ours. What should we do? Should we make contact? Maintain distance with the car. Stay on target. I'll cut it off. All right. Internet call. You got the money? Yes... Five million... in cash. How about my... Peng? How is Peng? -Hello. -We have a situation. -We-- -Can't get Liu Yan's signal?
We're checking for interference from signal towers. Not necessary. It's an Internet call. Someone else called. Right. What should we do? The target took a detour. Leaving North Ring from East Bridge exit. The drop-off is at the exit of Gangshan Highway. The ransom needs to be dropped off before 11:30 p.m. next to the third tree of the greenbelt by Shuang'an's exit. We made a call but didn't detect Liu Yan's mobile signal. Liu Yan has left the North Ring and is heading northeast. He's very cunning. He has kept the hostage and ransom separate since leaving Tianfang Community, so we must be cautious in our involvement. Damn it. You two, follow him. Guan. If we can't catch Liu Yan now, we'll have to wait until he meets the other kidnapper to find the hostage. In that case, the ball will be in his court. We aren't even sure what they will do with the hostage after getting the ransom. Or if Liu Yan will meet up with the other kidnapper after getting the ransom.
He may even escape along Gangshan Highway. Hence the food and necessities in his trunk. That's it, then. It may be rough and straightforward, but let's do it my way. Wait. Let's find another way. What other way is there? Contact the six teams who are tracking Liu Yan for a phone conference. I can do it, Captain Guan. Qian, get in the car. Go. -Be careful. -Okay. See you later. They're here... Hurry, strip. You work out? Hurry up... Hey... Over here! Get the clothes. Hurry. Put it on and get in. Get in! -I can't believe you. -Get in. -Hello? -Has Guo Xixiang paid? Another new number? So? Did they release Bo? Guo Xixiang is delivering the ransom. We are working on it. Oh my god! My car! What's wrong with you? Use your signal! Me? I was in the left lane! Who cares what lane? Use your signal! Who knows where you're going? This road is empty this late at night,
and you stay on my tail for over an hour. Annoying jerk. Watch your mouth! You're the one who hit me. I hit you? Fine, let's call the police, then. We'll see who's at fault here. Hello, an accident report, please. Yes, on Shunxing Road. A Nissan hit my car. License plate Port CA9769. My car is a Honda. I told you. You won't find me. Ren Di, can you just trust us? I'll call again in an hour. Once Bo is safe, I'll turn myself in. End of story. -So? -We got it. Hengtoushan. Damn it. A mountainous region. That sneaky woman. What happened? Handsome. -Officer. -Wait. Take a look first. -Who made the call? -Me. You see, I was just driving like a normal person. But this crazy driver here turned left without using his signal and hit my car. Look how serious the damage is. I borrowed this car from my classmate. What should I do now? That's complete nonsense.
Nonsense? You're the one who hit me. Watch your mouth. Stop it. We'll check the CCTV and see who is responsible. Now, you, tell me what happened. Well, Officer, I was driving in the left lane when she cut in front of me and hit me. Now she blames me. Damn you. -Make the call. -What a terrible temper, lady. Call him back. Have you deleted all call logs and texts? Of course. Don't worry. I reformatted everything. It's the right thing to do. This will work. I shouldn't have overlooked the fact the kidnappers kept using Internet calls. I thought Liu Yan might be using an app like Skype on his phone to make those calls. It's my fault. Well, Ren Di's been located near the Hengtoushan area. She'll be hard to find, but we sent a team. She's probably not there anymore. They're driving a sports car with a low frame. It's not built for those roads. If she's walked into the mountains, she might lose her signal. Get CCTV footage along Gangtong Highway, northbound.
They may be on the highway but may be off the main road. Got it. Yes, on Shunxing Road. In the eastbound direction. Check again? Can't you do it? A red Nissan and a white Honda. Yes... got it. -Hello? -Liu Yan made a call. I got the number. I know. I'll be quick. I'll call once I get it. What? Take care of it. Heyuan, less than three kilometers from the station. Fuck, that's close. How long will this take, Officer? Just a short while. Can I just take responsibility for this? I'll just pay her. That's not how it's done. We have to get it right. To be honest, I don't like that girl either. We'll get the CCTV footage and let you know. Officer... Let's just leave it. I'm in a hurry. It won't take much longer. We'll wrap this up soon. It's fine, really. Get me your license and registration. CRIMINAL POLICE Show me your license and registration. It's in my car.
-Stop! -Stop! Stop the car. -Stop right there! -Stop! Get out. -What happened? -Cover's been blown. We've been had. Go! -Hello? -Liu Yan just texted that number. What does it say? "Run." Block all exits. Teams, stand by. Damn it! -How's the hostage? -Just one injury. -Left pinky. -Call an ambulance! Okay. All exits are sealed. He can't run. Keep searching, hurry! -Captain Zhou! -What? The hostage... is dying. Get in the car. Hurry. They're coming. Take a look. What is it? He ran off. -You didn't tell me he has asthma. -I... I forgot. You saw the photo. They gagged him. Think they'd give him meds? I don't care. Just make sure Bo lives! Guan. Guan! Extrinsic asthma. His medical records show his allergens are dust and sawdust. That warehouse has been abandoned since 2009. It can't be clean. -Where is he? -In the ER. He has brain hypoxia due to suffocation. He's been in a coma for two hours.
I know you did your best. I always thought I could uphold justice once I become an officer. Now that I am one, I've realized how powerless I feel in so many situations. I believe that's life. We keep running into problems... falling, and... getting back up. The outcome often isn't ideal. We can only do our best. Where'd Ren Di get all those numbers? Isn't there a real-name policy? Batches of SIMs used to be sent to newsstands and snack shops. Even with the real-name policy, many of those remaining numbers can still be bought. So... There have been three numbers. She didn't learn much while here... but tossing SIM cards? She picked up that tactic quick. The other kidnapper? Escaped. An underground power shaft. We should just draw a ritual circle, stick some incense in, and pray that Ren Bo lives. Ren Di will let Guo Peng go and surrender. And I can go after those two bastards. Doctor. Doctor.
How is he? Because of you, they mistook Bo for Guo Peng! 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? Guan. I just can't live up to you. What do you mean? Have I been handling it wrong? Ren Bo's case? Was my analysis wrong? Why couldn't I save him? I think... it's just bad luck. This isn't like you. Give me one. When did you start smoking? None of us knew Ren Bo had asthma. The kidnappers kept him gagged. They couldn't have known he had asthma. Not to mention medication. On the other hand, if Ren Bo had a chance to speak, they would have known they got the wrong person. Who knows what would have happened then. So it's a moot point. Don't let it bother you. You don't have to comfort me. I'm just comforting myself. Ren Di will call anytime. What should we do?
At this point... we can only tell her the doctor's working on Bo and buy more time to find her and Guo Peng. Can I tell her Ren Bo is alive? She probably won't take your word for it. Should I send her a photo? His body still looks fresh. We'll say Ren Bo is still in a coma. We may not have an ideal plan, but I don't recommend lying to her. Male and female kidnappers are intrinsically different. Women are more sensitive and emotional. They are more likely to accept bad outcomes in time, but covering up and lying can be deal breakers. If Ren Di finds out, she could have a mental breakdown. Like you said, even if we took time to reveal Ren Bo's death to her, it's uncertain. Brother... let me do it my way. Hongyu, it's not worth the risk. Trust the team. Stall her for as long as you can so we can try to find her. She's not a professional criminal. She won't last long with those tactics. Zhou Xun is calling. I have to go.
Hello... Hongyu! Hong... Captain Guan! He is stable for now, but due to prolonged hypoxia, we're not sure about brain damage. But he is alive. Don't worry. You saw the photo. I can't force you to turn yourself in, but at least let Guo Peng go. He wouldn't want anything to happen to you. Let me see him live. Live video? He's in intensive care. There is no signal there. You have your equipment. I don't care how you do it. I told you. I want live video! Fine. I'll do it. Stay on this number. Give me time to arrange it on one condition. Once you get the video, let Guo Peng go, all right? Doctor, has Ren Bo's body been transferred yet? It's still in the emergency room. Only the ventilator has been removed. Good. Put everything back on him. You two, consult with the doctor to make sure Ren Bo looks all right. Put some light makeup on if necessary. Make him look normal.
Go. Wang. Narrow down the locked-down area per the tech team's instructions. Take a team with you. -Yes, sir. -Hurry. Ren Di, we have reception now. I'm in the ER. Your brother is here. He's okay. Take a look. Bo... -See? -I can't see clearly. He's fine. Don't worry. I've fulfilled your request. Can you let Guo Peng go now? Let me see him again. Let me see him again! Bo... Closer... All right? I gave you what you want. I've met your demands. -Will you let him go? -Closer. -What do you want? -Closer. Zoom in! All right? Do you believe me? Ren Di. Ren Di? Do you hear me, Ren Di? Let him go! Ren Di. Say something! Let Guo Peng go! The number you have dialed is unavailable. Please call again later. Sorry. The number you have dialed is unavailable. No signal.
She wasn't fooled. Captain Zhou. Captain Guan. Ren Di called Guo Xixiang. She said she knows... her brother... She wants Guo Xixiang or us to hand over the kidnappers in 24 hours. Hand over my ass. We don't have them. Or we can get two guys to play the kidnappers, tie them up, and send them? Let me finish, Captain Zhou. She wants... the kidnappers' bodies. The car is empty, Captain Zhou. We're at the provincial border. I just went to the bus station control room. They only have CCTVs at the entrance and exit. She might not have taken a long-distance bus. It might be a minibus, a cab, or even a tricycle. I don't know. How am I supposed to look for her? Still looking. So... how can a girl move at will with Guo Peng in tow after abandoning the car and not leave any trace? She doesn't need to do that. What? She learned from us as well as from the kidnappers. She probably isn't with the hostage.
She only has to immobilize Guo Peng, throw him in a ditch, and she's free. Where are we supposed to find her in these mountains? So that means we have three fugitives fleeing separately now. We have to take out two of them and send the bodies to the third to rescue the rich kid who drugged himself. We're not the only ones. -Guo Xixiang is offering a reward. -What? NOTICE OF REWARD He put the kidnappers' descriptions. Five million for each. How generous. Guo! Get up. Get me that old fellow. Wait. Notice how he wrote it. Guo Xixiang probably consulted a lawyer before issuing this. He said Ren Di was the one asking for the kidnappers' bodies, and he also requested for any clues to find the kidnappers. The way he worded it, we can't accuse him of offering a bounty to kill. So, basically, he's just... Creating needless gossip. Captain Guan, I... The phones at the station... Ringing off the hook? People offering tips on the kidnappers, right?
Tell them to handle it! That Guo Xixiang is a pain! He just won't stop. Even if someone gave up the kidnappers for 10 million, he wouldn't live to see it. That much money? Who knows. Hello? I see. Liu Yan's been found. Who found him? We got a report. Near the east gate of Xiangyang Park, he was shot to death. I can't go back now. Let's meet up later. I'm calm. Don't worry. I know. I'll tell you when we can meet up. Captain Guan. A 7.62 mm caliber. Don't tell me it's an AK. If it were, half of his brain would be gone now. Doesn't the Black Star use a 7.62 mm caliber as well? Liu Yan was shot twice. Based on the powder burns and blood and tissue splatter, the first was close from behind, then one after he fell. Isn't this... This rare type of killing has been quite popular lately. Guan. Should we keep an eye on Guo Xixiang... and arrest whoever claims the bounty? If money can solve everything, why are we here? Better be quick, or his accomplice will be in danger, too.
Eight of his fingers were broken. They were snapped. There's a ligature mark here. Looks like he was interrogated. Two unbroken fingers. He probably confessed. Good. This will help us. Let's wait for the next report. Then we can send their photos to Ren Di to get Guo Peng back. Unless we can find the other kidnapper before he's killed. What's the name of that reporter we dealt with before? Dong Han? Liu knows her well. Why? Let's get her to spread the news. JINGANG NEWS Since you took over, Zhou Xun, not only is the clearance rate up. The station's and case exposure rates are running high, too. At this rate, the bureau will soon retire me to the Publicity Department! Retirement is good. Do you want me to retire? But don't worry. If I end up in the Publicity Department, I'll have you all transferred to work for me there! Chief Gu. Those were all my ideas.
A proper investigation is happening simultaneously. If Liu Yan revealed the location of his accomplice before he died, we could use the media to put pressure on the other kidnapper before the killer strikes again. This could also mitigate Ren Di's emotional state somewhat. Guan, I've known you for a long time. I'm glad you came back to help this time. But you are a free man now. You don't have to write evaluations and reports or worry about demotions, transfers, disciplinary action, and discharges. Yet you keep using these unconventional tactics. Shouldn't you consider those of us who are on the payroll? I'm sorry, Chief. I didn't mean to get the team in trouble. I only did it... to keep the hostage safe. Yes. You should do everything to keep the hostage safe, but you shouldn't gamble with it. -At the hospital-- -Chief. I approved it. Save it. You're not that smart. Guan. This isn't your style.
Do you not follow rules now that you're wearing our uniform? Yes, unconventional tactics sometimes work. But what if they fail again, like the hospital incident? Let's take this instance, for example. Say it works, and everyone's happy this time.
