Synopsis

Sunday, April 14, 2013, one day before the blast.

The film opens with Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg) and two other police officers trying to get a suspect named Harrold (Rhet Kidd) to open his apartment door. Tommy kicks the door down with such force that he injures his knee. He manages to catch Harrold before Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman) arrives. Tommy tells Davis that he hurt his knee kicking a perp in the mouth as the officers arrest Harrold.

A couple named Patrick Downes (Christopher O’Shea) and Jessica Kinsky (Rachel Brosnahan) are having a meal as they discuss going to the marathon later that day. Patrick tries to get Jessica to speak with a Boston accent.

At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a group of students are working on a project of theirs as Officer Sean Collier (Jake Picking) goes to visit one of his friends, Li (Lana Condor), regarding concert tickets.

Tommy gets home late and wakes up his wife Carol (Michelle Monaghan) as he stumbles through his closet.

Monday, April 15th, 2013, Patriots Day.

As the sun is rising, a Chinese exchange student named Dun Meng (Jimmy O. Yang) talks to his parents via a video chat and shows them his new car, a large black Mercedes. His parents comment that he must be very tired. Dun then goes out for his morning run.

Tommy does his morning workout and goes to find that Carol put his uniform together for him. He puts it on, kisses Carol goodbye, and goes off to work.

Meanwhile, Katherine Russell (Melissa Benoist) is tending to her daughter while her husband Tamerlan Tsarnaev (Themo Melikidze) and his brother Dzokhar (Alex Wolff) are planning for something together. Dzokhar doesn’t seem entirely sure about what is to come, while Tamerlan tells him that they are working in the name of Islam. Tamerlan then hugs his brother.

In nearby Watertown, Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese (JK Simmons) gets up and goes to the nearby Dunkin Donuts to get his wife a blueberry muffin.

The Patriots Day marathon is being set up as officers and citizens continue coming in. Steve Woolfenden (Dustin Tucker) and his son Leo (Lucas Thor Kelley) are there to watch his wife compete in the race. Patrick and Jessica arrive and join the crowd. Sean and his buddies watch from home. Carol shows up in the crowd to bring Tommy something. Before the race begins, there is a moment of silence in honor of the victims of the Newtown school shooting.

2:45pm

Tamerlan and Dzokhar arrive at the race. They split up and carry backpacks with them, dropping them off a few blocks away from each other before disappearing.

2:49pm

As the runners are heading down the street, an explosion goes off. Before most people can react, another explosion goes off a few blocks down. The police spring into action while medics start tending to the wounded. Both Patrick and Jessica are severely injured. Steve is also injured by the blast, but Leo is uninjured. A medic tends to Steve while an officer takes Leo somewhere safe. Tommy finds Carol safe and urges her to get home. Other runners and fans are severely injured with some of their limbs blown off or mangled.

3:35pm, 45 minutes after the blast.

Once things have settled in the area and everyone has been cleared out, the police meet with FBI Special Agent in Charge Rick Deslauriers (Kevin Bacon). After learning the details, Rick doesn’t want to initially label the incident as an act of terrorism so as to not create even more panic, but they come to the conclusion that this was indeed done by terrorists. Rick has all the authorities working on the case to set up shop at the Black Falcon Terminal so that they may conduct their investigation.

The Tsarnaevs see reports of their attack all over the news and decide to keep a low profile.

6:50pm, 4 hours after the blast.

Tommy goes around the city trying to find leads. He meets with Jessica’s family while she and Patrick are both comatose and have had their legs amputated in separate hospitals.

8:30pm

Dun Meng picks up the take out order of Chinese food.

Tuesday, April 16, 2013, 17 hours after the blast.

The president orders the flags in the entire U.S. to fly at half-staff until further notice. Tommy goes home and finds neighbours and friends all clamouring and asking who is responsible. Tommy becomes distressed and screams at everyone to get out. He breaks down in Carol’s arms over what he has just witnessed and vows to “find these guys before they do this to somebody else”.

Wednesday, April 17, 2013, 41 hours after the blast.

An analyst at the terminal reviews security footage from the marathon prior to the explosion. He spots Dzokhar wearing a white cap and being the only one to look in the opposite direction from everyone else. They also manage to get footage of Tamerlan. Rick is hesitant about putting the pictures out because he thinks it might give the suspects an advantage since there isn’t concrete proof that they were the culprits. He also worries that should they be Muslim, it will create anti-Muslim paranoia and fear. Rick chooses not to release the photos, but Davis demands that they do.

Thursday, April 18, 2013

President Obama arrives in Boston for a speech inside the church. Pugliese has his own team in Watertown conducting their investigation into the bombings.

3:30pm, 73 hours after the blast.

Ed Davis wants to release the pictures so that the public can find out who did it. Releasing the pictures can cause draw the bombers’ attention.

5:05pm, 74 hours after the blast

One of Dzokhar’s college buddies is in his dorm smoking a bong. They look into his bag for more weed but find a number of materials used to create a bomb (e.g. fireworks and vaseline).

9:15pm, 78 hours after the blast.

The brothers go out at night and find Sean sitting in his patrol car after responding to a nearby disturbance. They approach his car, and Tamerlan shoots Sean in the face. Dzokhar tries to grab Sean’s gun, but Sean fights him off. Just before Sean fights back, Tamerlan finishes him off by continuing to shoot with the gun.

10:40pm, 80 hours after the blast.

Afterwards, they come across Dun in his Mercedes and they carjack him at gunpoint. Tamerlan drives away and asks Dun if he believes Muslims were responsible for 9/11. Dun admits to not knowing much about 9/11 as Tamerlan claims the U.S. government was responsible for those attacks.

The brothers then stop at a gas station. Since one gas pump does not accept credit cards, this gives Dun Meng the chance he needs to escape. Just before Dzhokhar leaves the store, Dun quickly bolts from the car before Tamerlan can react. Running as fast as he can, Dun reaches another nearby convenience store and frantically tells the clerk to call 911. The brothers get away but Tommy arrives at the scene to talk to Dun. He tells Tommy that the carjackers are the marathon bombers and are planning to do another explosion in New York. To Tommy’s amazement, Dun gives Tommy the GPS tracking number to his car so they can find them.

Friday April 19, 2013, 12:40am

With this invaluable lucky break, the police trace the car to Watertown. Tamerlan is confronted and starts to open fire on an officer, engaging in an epic shootout. Backup then arrives. Dzokhar throws bombs at the police while Tamerlan shoots at them. Pugliese and Tommy rush to the scene. Tamerlan is eventually shot multiple times. Dzhokhar drives away and finishes his own brother off by running him over.

1:35am, 82 hours after the blast.

Tamerlan is taken to the hospital where doctors try to revive him, but he is pronounced dead.

4:50am

Ed Davis sets up the command center on the parking lot of the Watertown Mall. Devau announces that they will lock down Boston until further notice.

8:40am, 89 hours after the blast.

The next day, the entire city of Boston is on lockdown as police continue to search for Dzokhar. His roommates are arrested in their dorm.

11:30am, 93 hours after the blast.

Katherine is also taken into custody to be questioned for any possible involvement in her husband’s deeds. A woman police detective interrogates Katherine and presses her into giving up any information should there be more bombs out there. The woman tries to convince Katherine that Tamerlan didn’t even care enough about her or their daughter, just as Katherine doesn’t care enough about their child to disclose any information. Katherine stubbornly remains silent on the matter until the interrogators have to give up noting that although she likely knew of the attacks beforehand, they would never be able to prove it sufficiently to arrest her.

Across town, Patrick and Jessica are reunited, as are Steve and Leo.

6:35pm, 100 hours after the blast.

A man in the suburbs finds rolls outside on his lawn by his boat. He believes that Dzhokhar is hiding under the sheets in the boat. The police arrive, and Tommy goes over to confirm that Dzhokhar is indeed in the boat. More officers show up and demand Dzokhar to get out. They start shooting at the boat and setting off flares until Dzhokhar finally surrenders. He is slammed to the ground and taken into custody. Everyone at the terminal cheers when they hear the news. Tommy and his fellow officers go to a bar to celebrate their victory.

Saturday, April 20, 2013

David Ortiz thanks the police for capturing Dzhokhar. We then see a footage of a Boston Red Sox game with the real authorities portrayed in the film present, with everyone in the city showing off a newfound sense of pride and unity. The president has ordered the flags to fly at full-staff again.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was charged on thirty counts and sentenced to death by lethal injection. He is currently being held in federal prison while awaiting his appeal. His roommates were arrested for obstructing the investigation. Authorities and law enforcement continue to seek information regarding Katherine Russell’s possible involvement in the bombings.

We then see video testimonies from the real people involved, including Ed Davis, Richard Deslauriers, Jeffrey Pugliese, Patrick Downes, Jessica Kinskey, and Steve Woolfenden and his wife Amber. They discuss the tragedy of the events, but also the strength and unity it brought them, and the massive support for the authorities and survivors. We see Patrick with a prosthetic leg as he would later run in the marathon and make it to the finish line. He is seen tearfully embracing Jessica.

Also shown are photos of the deceased victims (Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi and Martin Richard, as well as Officer Sean Collier, who was killed three days later by the duo). The film is dedicated to the victims, survivors, first responders, medics, and the law enforcement that were involved during the events.

(SIREN WAILING)

Hey, Commish.
Chris.

Third floor upstairs.

Third?
Yeah.

What happened with “Shan-creek-a”?

I was just goin’ over there to have an appointment with this female, and this lady came out of nowhere and brained me with a smoothie.

Her daughter says you pushed her.

Sir, I was tryin’ to make an escape…

Did you push her?

After the smoothie.

So you did…

What’s up, Tommy.

Whoa! This is an occasion.

Commish exitin’ the SUV?

Is this a homicide?

It’s not. You’ve been misinformed.

You’re Fuckin’ kiddin’ me.

It’s not a homicide?

Nope.

No, sir. No, sir.

Why are you bleeding?

I was trying to tell your officers, sir.

This woman is crazy.

And she hit me with a Fuckin’ smoothie in the head.

What are you talkin’ about?

Like, a drink or somethin’?

No, like a Fuckin’ smoothie, you know?

Like you would smooth your clothes out with.

(LAUGHS) An iron? A Fuckin’ iron?

DAVIS: An iron!

For Fuck‘s sake!

It’s called an iron, Harrold.

HARROLD: Yes, sir, a smoothie.

Shut up.

Commish, I should be a captain or a deputy-super or probably even your job by now.

I can’t take much more of this shit.

You dug that hole.

(SIGHS) You know, my Fuckin’ knee is killin’ me.

He kicked the Fuckin’ teeth out of a vice cop in Back Bay.

How do you Fuck your knee up kickin’ a guy in the mouth?

I over-kicked.

I hyper-extended it.

I thought he Fuckin’ got suspended.

Hey! I Fuckin’ hear you, numb-nuts.

Sorry, that’s what I heard.

What’d you hear?

I heard that you got suspended.

Do I look suspended?

No, sir.

He doesn’t look suspended.

Would I be sittin’ here starin’ at you two chowderheads if I was suspended?

No, I wouldn’t.

Life is a rigged Fucking game.

You two just passed “Go.”

Buckle it the Fuck up.

Harrold, you’re under arrest.

Actually accurate.

You go home, put some ice on that knee, and get some sleep.

Got the race in five hours.

Catchin’ drunks at the marathon.

Boss, please, don’t make me wear the clown suit.

It’s the last hoop, Tommy.

You walk your beat, smile, and you’re officially out of the doghouse.

One more day.

Weather’s gonna be nice, pretty girls, fresh air, be like a big picnic.

Everybody loves a picnic.

WOMAN: Pizza delivery for Patrick.

Hey, baby.

Hey.

How was work?

This sweet old man came in and gave that to me today.

Mr. Flanagan.

His wife was on my floor a couple months back.

Stage four, so we were just there to keep her comfortable.

I guess before she passed, she told him she wanted me to have it.

Huh.

I hardly knew them, but he was so sweet and so sad, and I was just holding him and hugging him.

Look at how pretty that is.

Isn’t that beautiful?

And you made me dinner?

How’s your dissertation coming?

Huh!

Two paragraphs, both deleted.

Uh-huh.

And, uh, but I did tag some cool apartments in San Francisco to show you.

Yeah?

Yeah.

Look at you, so excited.

Well, I’m really excited that we’re taking the day off tomorrow.

Mmm.

And I think after my masterpiece pizza, we’re gonna have to go on a run at some point.

Tomorrow? No, honey.

Yeah.

There’s three things you can do on Patriots Day.

One’s watch the marathon, the other one’s run the marathon, and the third one is get down to Fenway and yell for those Red Sox.

Yellin’ for the Red Sox.

Sox.

Sox.

Mmm. Red “Sahx.”

Red “Sahx.”

Red “Sahx.”

There you go.

I think you just wanna stay in bed with me all day.

Wanna know what I think?

Mmm.

I think the reason Mrs. Flanagan wanted you to have it was because she knew you would hold him when he gave it to you.

You’re a very sweet man.

I know. Cheers.

(CHUCKLES)

To the Red Sox.

Yeah. “Sahx.”

Sox.

“Sahx.”

“Sahx.”

No, no, no, no.

Look, can’t you see the beauty of just sayin’ “Thank you”?

I say, “You’re welcome.” Huh?

(SIGHS)

It’s just a trade-off to get your job back.

Look…
Nah.

No more words. I just wanna get to the Hopkinton, all right?

RACE ANNOUNCER: Does anybody have a big tub of melted butter?

A huge lobster just crossed the finish line!

(INDISTINCT ANNOUNCEMENT ON P.A.)

Hey! Leo…

Time out.

No time out!

Hey!

Baby…

You behavin’ yourself?

Oh, yeah.

Here it is, you numbskull.

You’re on your feet all day, and you wear the wrong one?

I did it on purpose so you’d have to bring me the fatter one.

Romantic, right?

I’m sure that was your plan!

You wanna walk with me a bit?

No, I gotta get back to work!

I gotta claw my way outta this zoo!

I love you. Thanks for the brace.

I love you, too.

Hey, give that to Joey.

(CROWD CONTINUES CHEERING)

Announcer: Looking down Boylston, you can see waves of runners turning the corner for the final…

(CROWD CHEERING)

Did you see that guy?

(LAUGHS)

There he is.
General Patton in a neon vest.

Hey, Commish, I’ll get a Fuckin’ smoothie and be waitin’ in the back of the Tahoe for you and Q.

(LAUGHING)

Hey, grab this bozo!

Get him outta here!
Keep your eyes open, will ya?

(CROWD CONTINUES CHEERING)

I’m proud of ya, Tommy.

How ya feelin’?

The knee hurts.

The back hurts.

The balls hurt.

The pain sometimes feels like it hurts on top of the hurt, if that’s even remotely possible.

(CELL PHONE RINGS)

This is Davis.

No, the Biden call’s scheduled for 3:00.

Biden? Vice President Biden?

Hey, let me talk to him.

Behave yourself, Tommy.

Commissioner, let me talk to him!

I want Ring Road clear, so I can push ambulances in and out!

Keep pushin’ in those ambulances!

(INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER)

(SIRENS WAILING)

Okay. People are coming.

That’s it.

(PEOPLE GROANING)

MAN: Oh, shit!

MAN: Sir?

Can we get some help, sir?

Anyone, sir, please?

Yeah.

You’re okay. You’re okay.

(CRYING)

You’re okay.

We gotta take your son and get him some help.

Leo! Leo!

You’re gonna be okay, sir.

You all right? You hear me?

You’re okay.

I can’t…

Man: We’ll figure this out.

I’ll find you in just a minute.

Jess…

(SIRENS WAILING)

Get the wheelchairs!

Come on!

(HELICOPTER HOVERING)

EMT: Both of her legs are severely lacerated.

On three, ready?

This is my wife.

She’s gonna be okay.

Hey! Send two more ambulances from Ring Road right now!

ON RADIO: This is Sergeant Davis at the Forum Cafe.

I need personnel at the second bomb site immediately!

I need assistance!

(PANTING)

This is Delta 984.

I’m heading to the second bomb site!

Everybody, keep this line clear!

And stop letting runners through!

Secure the perimeter!

If I see another runner, your ass is done!

WOMAN: We need a Fuckin’ ambulance over here!

We need ambulances down at the second bombing site!

Starbucks and the Forum!

Are there more bombs?

Are there more bombs?

No, no, no, no.
Look at me. You’re gonna be okay.

You’re doin’ good, all right?
What’s that? What’s that?

Don’t look at that!
Look at me! Look at me!

Get that over here now!

Guys, shut down the race!

Do not have another person run down Boylston Street!

Come on, get her up, get her up!

Shut down the race!

Fuck, Tommy!

We’ve got two fatalities.

We got two fatalities, and a Fuckin’ kid, eight years old.

Where’s his family?

They’re wounded.

They Fuckin’ dragged everybody out.

For Fuck‘s sake, what do we do?

I don’t Fuckin’ know.

We gotta leave someone with him.

We cannot leave him here alone, Captain.

No, we’re gonna get someone by his side.

I ain’t goin anywhere.

We need everybody out of the area immediately.

We gotta clear the perimeter.

Could be more bombs.

Yeah, I’m on it.

Hey!

Anyone in here? Anyone?

Shit!

(CELL PHONE CHIMES)

This is Delta 984.

We gotta confiscate all cell phones.

Repeat. If you see anyone recordin’, grab their phones, I don’t care who it is!

Man: They gotta find my boy.

Somebody, please…

EMT: Don’t worry.

We’ll find him, sir.

I don’t know where he is.

(INDISTINCT ON RADIO)

Lee, I’m James. I’m going to take care of you, all right?

You’re going to be fine.

(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)

NURSE: Can you feel that?

Can you wiggle your toes?

Good. Good, good, good.

We’re good.

Doctor: We’re gonna save your leg, okay?

Hey, you gotta help me find my son.

His name is Leo Woolfenden.

He’s three years old.

We got separated somehow.

Somebody took him.

I just didn’t…

You need to find him.

His name is Leo Woolfenden.

W-O-O-L…

TOMMY: Push out and make sure we’re keepin’ people out of the perimeter.

All right? Get moving.

We’ve got a six-block perimeter set up.

We’re all locked down here.

(SIRENS WAILING)

Oh, boy.

Here we go. Here we go.

This is the first blast scene?

TOMMY: Yeah.

The second was down there at the Forum restaurant.

BRADSHAW: Total station en route.

Okay, we need TEDAC and OPU.

What about cell phones, cameras?

Yeah, we’re right on top of that.

Yeah, we’re collecting cell phones, surveillance tapes, all the video we can find.
Get ’em all, Tommy. Don’t miss any.

How big is the secured perimeter?

Six blocks off the course each direction.

Let’s extend that. Make it 10.

You got it.

It’s clearly coordinated.

There could be more bombs.

How many total wounded?

Got three fatalities that we know of.

One’s a little child on the street in front of the Forum.

(CLATTERING)

What are they doin’?

What? I said that’s an eight-year-old kid under there.

No, they can’t move the body.

We’ve gotta clear them out.

Tell them to clear out of there!

You got it, you got it.

Tell them to clear out of there.

Who the Fuck are you?

Sorry, Sergeant.

Could be clues in the blood-splattered bomb residue on the boy’s body.

We can’t risk moving him.

Nothing moves.

What’s the matter with you guys?

You gonna tell that boy’s parents that their son’s still lyin’ on the Fuckin’ street?

Turn it down, Tommy.

Oh, Fuck that!

Tommy! Let’s go over there.

All right, Billy…

Just Fuckin’ leave me alone, will ya?

We’ve gotta decide who’s running this, and we have to decide quickly.

If it’s terrorism, it’s yours, Rick.

Gentlemen, the moment we label this terrorism, everything changes.

It’s not about Boston anymore.

It’s not a local investigation.

It’s Wolf Blitzer.

It’s stock markets.

It’s politicians and knee-jerk reactions, anti-Muslim backlash…

And what if we’re wrong?

I mean, there’s no take-back.

I’ve been through this before.

Look, your call, but we already know it is.

And a cell is activated, they hit Chicago or New York or Washington, what happens then?

The accusations are gonna come, no matter what we do.

(CLATTERS)

It’s terrorism.
We’ll take it.

So, what do you need?

Command center.
Really big one.

(SIRENS WAILING)
(HELICOPTER HOVERING)

This’ll do.

I want CART team over there.

Post-blast investigators
in that corner.

We need a media tent set up.

All right, let’s get an evidence grid

started right over there
against that wall.

And I guarantee
these are gonna crash,

so let’s get a bank of
landlines up immediately.

We’re good, boss.
We’ll be up in an hour.

(REPORTERS CLAMORING)

REPORTER: Commissioner Davis,
the “New York Post” is reporting

a 20-year-old Saudi national
has been charged.

Can you confirm?
That is false.

We have not charged
anyone at this time.

We are asking the public to help us
supplement the investigation.

Anyone with photos
or video of the marathon

is encouraged to turn them in
to Boston Police.

(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)

I need you to give me access
to the following databases…

Travel, Visa…

Someone needs to get on the phone
with the United States Attorney’s office.

Get us some warrants for the cell phone towers right now.

AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, all the way down the track.

Let T actical Aviation know, as of right now, Boston owns both those planes.

Get them both to Logan.

No, I’m talkin’ about the T-5’s.

They’re gonna be cycling from Logan to Quantico. That’s it.

FBI servers just got 12,000 e-mails in under a minute.

Holy Christ.

And we’re crashed.

Get us back online now.

AGENT: Yes, sir. Yes, sir.

Now.

NURSE: 28-year-old female,

Jessica Kensky.

NURSE #2: Pulse, 101.

NURSE #3: BP’s 84 over 45.

DOCTOR: Think the best that we could do is a BKA.

The soft tissue’s also compromised.

I don’t think this is salvageable.

DOCTOR #2: There’s way too much soft tissue damage.

We gotta take it.

There’s nothin’ left here.

DOCTOR #3: I need some saline.

We need to wipe off this flap.

Nurse #4: Male, late 20s with no ID.

Doctor #3: The leg is not looking good.

All right, the vessels are controlled, but there is no viability here.

Absolutely no blood supply.

We’ll have to amputate.

Saw.

(WHIRRING)

Doctor: Amputating below the knee, left leg.

(SAW WHIRRING)

(INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER)

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

Analyst: We’re recreating the scene.

Put every item down exactly where it was found.

Analyst #2: We need this spread out here.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Lay some paper down.

Let the stuff air dry.

I don’t want to degrade the DNA.

Carol? Pick up the phone! Carol, can you hear me?

Analyst #2: Get this paper over here.

If you come across any clothing that’s burnt or charred, separate that.

I need to have somebody collect these
cell phones here, get ’em down to CART.

Deslauriers:
Okay, people, remember, the bombs had to be carried in somehow.

Carol, you gotta call me back as soon as you get this message, all right?

…on large bags and/or backpacks.

Analyst: Sort these out by adapter types.

Anything with a camera, we need to get over to the import station.

ANALYST: Are those GPS tags
comin’ through okay?

TECH: Yes, sir.

DAVIS: All right.
Yeah, I got him right here.

JFK Library’s not an explosion.

(INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS)

(CELL PHONE RINGING)

Hello? Oh, Carol!
I’ve been calling and calling!

Tommy, Jesus.
Are you okay?

Yeah, yeah, I’m fine.
You’re not hurt, are ya?

I’m fine, Tommy.
My mother’s here.

Everybody’s here.
Oh, thank God!

The news is going crazy.

They’re sayin’
there could be more bombs.

Please be careful, Tommy.
I will. I gotta go, all right?

I’m gonna call you
as soon as I can.

I love you.

Hey, Sarge, heard you on the radio
this afternoon. Hell of a job.

I thought I heard your
squeaky-ass voice in my ear.

Don’t Fuck around right now,
Mike, please?

I’m not Fuckin’ around.
You did good.

Hey, honey, it’s me.

Sweetheart,
I’ve got out one day too late.

I will. No.

I love you, too.

What are those guys doin’ here?
They weren’t even down there!

What the Fuck is this, a joke?

They’re the FBI and they’re in charge,
Tommy, so just do as you’re told.

And their boss,
I wouldn’t wanna be that guy.

He’s triple-Fucked.
One, he steps up and takes it.

Two, now he’s gotta solve the thing.
What’s three?

He’s gotta walk around inside that life all day long.

Fuckin’ shoot me four times and…

BILLY: Button it up, Tommy.

These young guys are lookin’ up to you.

I don’t need the ass-ache from you today.

Just do as you’re Fuckin’ told!
Fine.

We have no evidence this was a suicide attack.

So these IED’s were most likely remotely detonated.

It is highly probable these bombs were homemade.

It is likely that they made more.

What does Mass State think?

I think we need to get air assets from the National Guard.

I think we need a couple additional tactical teams.

But most importantly, there’s two bathrooms in this place, and one’s broken.

Right, I’ll get on to that.

It is safe to say that we’re dealing with more than one individual, some degree of sophistication.

Excuse me, Agent Deh-law-ray?

DAVIS: Special Agent DesLauriers.
TOMMY: Sorry about that.

Look, I just wanted to say…
It’s not the time or place.

I just want to say,
I work Homicide.

I know one thing closes cases… witnesses.

So we oughta get our asses to the hospital, interview the victims.

Could be someone saw somethin’, no?

Tommy, get some of our guys on this.

And keep in mind that the bomber could be among the wounded.

We’ve seen it before.

So let’s get positive lD’s on everybody comin’ into the hospital.

(CELL PHONE CHIMES)

TOMMY: Let’s show this cocksucker he messed with the wrong Fuckin’ city.

NEWS ANCHOR: We’re getting conflicting reports about the arrest of a Saudi national earlier.

Now, Commissioner Davis at this time is insisting that no suspects have been arrested.

KATHERINE: Dzhokhar! I asked you to get whole milk. This is two percent.

It’s milk. She’s a baby.

She can’t taste the difference.

No, she can’t, but I will when she gets sick.

Feed the baby in the bedroom.
I can’t hear the news.

Katherine:
What am I supposed to give her?

This isn’t gonna work.
Feed the baby in the bedroom.

I can’t hear…
KATHERINE: I needed whole milk!

I’ll take care of it! Feed her
in the bedroom right now! Go!

Make him get whole milk.

We shouldn’t have put
the bombs ground level.

We shoulda
put that shit waist-high.

Go get the right milk, Dzhokhar. Go!
What? No.

I don’t wanna hear any more of
her bullshit. Go get the right milk.

TOMMY: Mind if I ask you
a couple of questions?

Did you see anything
out of the ordinary?

Anything suspicious?
Nah.

Did you see anybody
put bags down or…

Thank you very much.
Appreciate it.

Has anybody spoken
to you guys yet?

No? What’s your name, sweetie?

My knee’s killing me.
You got some Tylenol back there?

We got all kinds of stuff, Sergeant.
You want a Vicodin?

No, no Vicodin. Tylenol.
Tylenol, Tylenol.

Make it four pills, please.
Okay, you got it.

Thank you.

Hey, do we have a name on him yet?

No, the EMT said he was
with his wife at the site.

But all I’ve got is this ring.

It’s engraved
“PB and J. 8-25-12.”

She’s gotta be in a different hospital.
Let me call around.

REPORTER: They are still keeping people
out of this area, obviously.

Still that 15-block area

This boy from…
Well, I think from Marathon Sport.

He looked like a little BU kid.
Like a good kid, Carol, you know?

He had an assistant manager tag

and, um…

he helped, we moved her.

We… we laid her down.

Blood just started to spread,
his knee was in her blood…

And then there was
an eight-year-old boy.

(SOBBING)
He was just layin’ there.

They had to take his family away,
and his parents, and Fuck, he’s Fuckin’…

I got these images in my head.

They ain’t goin’ away.

And you were right there.

Please don’t be mad at me
that I told you to come down there.

I shouldn’t have told you

You never could have known.
Baby, it’s not your fault.

I’m sorry, Carol.

I’m sorry that I told you to come.

I’m sorry that I put you there.

That’s the guy, isn’t it?
We believe so.

It’s gotta be.

Okay, so I am White Hat.

At exactly 2:45,

I am seen by the surveillance videos
outside the Forum restaurant, okay?

Now, Sergeant, as you can see, we’ve
recreated the Boylston Street crime scene.

Now, let’s move left of boom.

Left of what?

Left of boom.
Left of the explosions.

We need to trace him backwards.
You know this street, right?

And you know which places
have security cameras?

Yeah, yeah.
I know what you’re doin’.

That’s the finish line there.
You said 2:45?

Correct.

All right, so where is he at 2:44?
Who can see him?

It’s gotta be Crate & Barrel.

Pull the names from
the credit card receipts…

Crate & Barrel.

…then cross-check it

Okay, Sergeant.
I’m Crate & Barrel at 2:44.

Who sees me now?

It’s the Walgreen’s

It also, we understand, forced the FBI

to cancel what was
a scheduled news conference.

It has never been
rescheduled since.

How can we have zero hits
on facial recognition?

Well, the technology isn’t perfect,
Governor, we’ve got partial images.

We’ve got bad angles.

These are pretty clear
Fucking pictures.

One of the suspects
is wearing sunglasses.

Run it through the NSA’s system.
We’re using the NSA’s system, sir.

We need to get these
photos out to the public.

Not yet. We have a couple of
decent leads, but right now…

We release these photos,
the city eats these guys.

No, I agree.

So why don’t you
get over there and say somethin’?

Look, this is Ed’s Fuckin’ deal
right now, all right?

These guys are somebody’s friends,
neighbors, co-workers.

You got no balls.
I’ve got Fucking plenty of balls.

I’m not gettin’ involved
with the Governor.

I’ll go over there
and say somethin’.

You wanna get yourself
suspended again?

If we release those photos now,
it tells the suspects

that we don’t know who they are,

and that puts them ahead of us…
That’s true, but…

But what?
But what if we’re wrong?

What if these men are innocent?

And God forbid,
they also happen to be Muslims,

we will be crucified!

They don’t look like
prototypical jihadists to me.

What does a prototypical
jihadist look like, Rick?

You got a photo of one?

Okay, listen, that all sounds
very by-the-book, Rick,

okay, but we owe people answers.

We can’t just sit back
and keep analyzing data.

What does your gut tell you?

My gut tells me that
these are probably our guys.

But I’m not ready
to release the photos.

Gotta give our people
some more time to work.

Okay. Okay, it’s decided.

We’ll wait.

to reaffirm that the spirit
of this city is undaunted.

And the spirit of this country
shall remain undimmed.

That’s the spirit
you’ve displayed in recent days.

Hey. Hey, Li.
Hey.

Hey, Sean.
Oh, hey…

I like those glasses.
Those are new, huh?

Yeah, thanks.

We needed a study break,
so I thought you might like one, too.

Thanks, Li, yeah.

Coffee Coolattas.
These are great.

(CHUCKLES)
Uh, well, we should go back to work.

But, um, Saturday night,
Zac Brown Band?

Yeah, that’s right.
Are you guys…

I’ll make sure all you guys
are covered, so you’re in.

It’s just gonna be us.
Is that cool?

Yeah?
That’s better. Yeah.

Yeah?
No, I prefer that, yeah.

Cool. Bye.
All right.

Good seein’ you guys.

JEFF: All right, let’s pipe it down
so I can make this quick, please.

Situation in Boston remains in flux.

Let’s be prepared to augment
should they require our assistance.

Uh, speed limit on Common Street

has now officially been
down to 25 for a month.

So, warning period is over.

Quit giving warnings there
a week ago, Sarge.

I gave Mimi O’Brien a citation

for speeding
and expired registration.

Well, you’re a braver man
than I am, Gunga Din.

Davis:
We got an information vacuum.

Those are not our guys.

Meanwhile, you guys
aren’t any closer

to identifying the two
we’re really lookin’ for.

We need to release
those pictures.

If we release the photos now,
we have zero control.

If we overplay our hand,
we may force these guys to react.

Gentlemen, if I may?

Right now,
Boston’s workin’ against us.

As normal, you’ve got a murder,
no one rats.

We don’t got that problem,
’cause in this city,

when it comes to terrorism,
everybody wants to talk.

Look, you got a lot of people talkin’, but
they’re talkin’ about the wrong people.

You release the photos of our guys,
sit back and listen. Trust me.

You gotta start lettin’ Boston
work for us, I’m telling you.

I understand Boston,

but I can’t just snap my fingers.

This decision goes all the way up
to the Attorney General.

Then give me his number.
I’ll call him right now!

This is my Fuckin’ city, Rick!

Release the goddamn pictures!

Say again?

(DAVIS AND DESLAURIERS
CONTINUE ARGUING)

Hold on, stay on the line.

Don’t lecture me on intelligence,
okay, Ed? That is what I do!

Sir?
What?

White Hat, Black Hat.
Fox got the pictures.

They want what we have,
or they’re gonna release them.

Repeat that. Say that again.

Fox is gonna release the pictures
in 20 minutes, sir.

With or without a consult.
(HITS DOOR)

DESLAURIERS: Okay, I’m all about
inter-agency cooperation,

but when this is over,
I am gonna hunt down the piece of shit

that leaked those photos,
and I will Fucking ruin him!

I’m not gonna let Fox News
run this investigation.

We will release the pictures as soon as the president is wheels up.

(DOOR OPENS)

DESLAURIERS: We initially developed one person of interest, not knowing if that individual was working alone or in concert with others.

The FBI has developed a second suspect.

Today, we are enlisting the public’s help in identifying these two suspects…

REPORTER: Officials say they’ve made the images public now because they need help in connecting the faces of the potential suspects…

REPORTER #2:…the other walking just a short distance behind.

(REPORTERS CHATTERING IN OTHER LANGUAGES)

REPORTER #3: They believe that someone out there would recognize at least one, perhaps both of these men, and call in some vital information to law enforcement.

If you have any information at all, please reach out to the FBI.

(LIGHTER CLICKS)

NEWS ANCHOR: Investigators tonight are working to identify a young white man spotted in surveillance video from the Lord & Taylor.

He was in the crowd right before the second explosion.

He was carrying a backpack, talking on his cell phone, wearing a black jacket, gray hoodie, and a white baseball cap on backwards.

NEWS ANCHOR #2: No one should attempt to apprehend him except law enforcement.

Let me reiterate that caution.

Do not take any action on your own.

News anchor #3:
…identifying these two suspects.

Somebody out there knows
these individuals as friends.

NEWS ANCHOR #4: Federal law enforcement authorities now believe that a team of at least two men carried out the bombings here.

Not a lone wolf, but two men described tonight as armed and extremely dangerous.

Deslauriers:
We initially developed one person…

NEWS ANCHOR #4: They are now the world’s most wanted men.

Two men in their 20s caught on tape.
Suspect number one…

Who are you texting?
No one.

Get everything packed in the car.
It’s time to leave.

All right.
Can I have my gun now, though?

(SPEAKING ARABIC)

I just like…
I really want the gun now.

Dzhokhar, you will get your gun!

When?
Enough!

The pictures are blurry.
They’re no good.

No, the pictures are good.

Pictures are really good.

Hey, man, where’s Jahar at?
I don’t know.

Did you guys see
the press conference?

One of the guys looks
exactly Fuckin’ like him.

Yo, that’s what I Fuckin’ said.
No way. Everybody’s Fuckin’ paranoid.

He looks exactly Fuckin’ like him.
DIAS: He texted me.

He said to get some of his stuff.

Go ahead, Dias.
I got a study group to get to.

Don’t steal my shit!
Fuck you, man.

Fuck you!
Don’t touch my shit.

Study group, dickhead.
Fuckin’ asshole.

Gnarly, man, you can’t drive that thing on the beach.

You’re gonna get arrested again!

Relax, Bob.
You can’t get arrested…

This joint is kicked.
(LAUGHS)

It’s all done.
It’s cashed out.

Where does Dzhokhar keep his weed at?

Of course.
The coveted closet.

Yep, yep, yep, yep.

Shit.
There’s no weed in here.

Dias:
What’s that shit?

Don’t Fuckin’ know.
Is that Fuckin’ fireworks?

What the Fuck does he need fireworks for?

Hey, these are Fuckin’ BB’s, man.
What are you saying?

What are you Fucking talking about, man?

This is Fuckin’ bomb shit.

Are you guys really that Fuckin’ high you can’t see this shit?

What the Fuck do we do?
I don’t know, man. You found it.

Seriously? We found it.

Quiet the Fuck down and put the stuff in the bag.

We can’t leave it here.
Bag it up, man!

What the Fuck you think
I’m doin’, man?

NEWS ANCHOR: We’re still waiting to hear more about suspects.

NEWS ANCHOR #2: With pictures being available to the public, the FBI has yet to receive any…

NEWS ANCHOR #3: We now await one key lead, the names of these men.

KARA: Is it hot? Yeah.
It’s Fucking hot.

So you broke a finger cheerleading?
Yeah.

I did a backflip and came down on my hand like that.

Were you before, like, people throw you up really high, and then you come…

Yeah, I fell.
I got a concussion my senior year.

And I tried to get up and I tried to walk, and my entire left body was numb.

Like, I couldn’t walk.

I feel like I’d be really lonely if I was here.

Like, you’re alone, right?
Yeah, it’s okay.

In the beginning, like three years ago, it was harder.

Now, it’s like, you make new friends
and you find new people.

Sorry, I don’t know who did it.

Yo, you need to educate yourself, dog.

For real, that’s the problem

Thanks.
Thank you.

All right, let’s move.

DISPATCHER: Per FBI command,

He just said no Miranda.
Yeah, I know.

I mean, I never hear of that. You?
No. Never.

Who would call that?
I don’t know. AG? CIA?

Fuckin’ President.
How do I know?

TECH: Basically he’s got

This guy watched more porn

Okay, Washington is flying up

Let’s get her picked up

Sir, we just got a hit
on White Hat’s phone.

Whereabouts?
U Mass Dartmouth.

Let’s get HRT to U Mass Dartmouth.
They’re on their way, sir.

ROBEL: Dickhead.

You’re missing class
for an ass-whuppin’.

Wide open, man.
I’m just letting you know.

I don’t wanna go
to Crystal’s stupid party.

Go, go, go!
Shit!

Get down! Get down! Get down!

Let me see your face!
Let me see your face!

Don’t move! Don’t move!
Look at me.

Victor 1-1 to Talk.
We do not have White Hat.

(ALL GROAN)

Room is clear
for EOD and Forensics.

Repeat, we do not have White Hat.

No. Negative. Right.

We’re gettin’ tips from kids sayin’
they buy their pot from White Hat.

Apparently,
he’s the biggest dealer at U Mass.

Commish, they just called
from Black Falcon.

They got the wife.

LISA: Not what you were
expecting, huh, Commish?

DAVIS: It never is.

MAN: S.A.C. DesLauriers?

I’m looking for S.A.C. DesLauriers.
Rick DesLauriers.

Hi, I’m Mike Thomas.
May I have a word with you?

We’re gonna handle
the interview from here.

Have any of you spoken to her yet?
Not yet.

This is everything we have on her.
We’re good. We’re good.

Thank you, gentlemen.
We will take it from here.

Assalam-alaikum.

Assalam-alaikum.

You disrespect the Prophet?

Walaikum-assalam.

Katherine, are there more bombs?

My name is Veronica.

I was born in a tent
with three walls

that said UNICEF on the sides

to a mother who could not
write her own name.

You were born in a room
full of flowers and balloons.

Your mother is a nurse.
She calls you Katie.

You know nothing about me.
Your best friend, Gina Crawford,

works at a Starbucks in Cambridge

where you tried
to convert her to Islam

between skinny caramel macchiatos.
You know nothing.

Are there more bombs?

More bombers?

You sent Gina a text
right after the bombing

that said,
“A lot more people are killed

every day in Syria
and other places.

Innocent people.”

Did you see the footage
on television?

We found explosive residue
from the bombs in your apartment.

On your kitchen table.
In your kitchen sink.

The kitchen where you made
breakfast for your daughter.

Are there more bombs?

You met Tamerlan in a bar
your sophomore year

at Suffolk University.
I want a lawyer.

Tell me, Katie,

what are the rewards
for the wife of a mujahid?

If one’s husband becomes shahid,

what are the gifts
bestowed upon his wife?

(SCOFFS)

Your mind is too small
to understand any of this.

(STERNLY) Are there more bombs?
I want a lawyer.

No.
No?

No, what?
No.

I have rights.
You ain’t got shit, sweetheart.

Are there more bombs?
Am I under arrest?

Are there more bombs?
No? Then you can’t keep me.

Sit!

Who the Fuck are these guys?

Are there more bombs?

You’re crazy!
You’re bat-shit crazy, you know that?

You are out of your mind.
Your Fucking mind.

Katie…

your husband is gone.

Forever.

Sweetheart, you are now a widow.

And have deserted your daughter,

who will grow up knowing
her father was a monster.

Stop. Stop!

He didn’t even kiss you
before he left…

did he?

Katie, for the sake
of your daughter…

are there any more bombs?

(SNIFFLES)

For a Muslim woman,

marriage is a lilting dance
of duality…

strength and submission.

Beautiful, selfless,

rapturous love of two masters,

the carnal and the divine.

The life a Muslim woman lives

is a dangerous
and difficult one.

If she does not
submit to her husband,

there is a spot reserved
for her in Hell.

Yes.

My husband kissed me
before he left,

and he will kiss me again
when I see him in Heaven.

And you can’t prove anything.

(SPEAKS ARABIC)

Excuse me.

What do you think?
I think she knew.

But you’re never gonna prove it.

If there are more bombs out there,
she’ll never tell us.

How could a mother do that
to her daughter?

Good luck, huh.

(SIRENS WAILING)

GOV. PATRICK: Please tell me
you have something for us

because we’re losing daylight
and I have some decisions to make.

She’s not talking.

Mr. Governor,
we ran a Guardian search.

Black Hat was watchlisted.

He was right there all along,
and we missed him.

All these guys.
All these leads.

You see a Chechen
who’s not AI-Qaeda,

not even Middle Eastern…
Come on, Rick. Fuck that.

We all had access
to the same database.

I mean, who was lookin’ for
some narcissistic little princess?

Some whiny little bitch who threw
a tantrum because he lost a fight.

Everybody found out
he beat up his girlfriend?

He’s no martyr.
He’s a Fucking coward.

We covered Barker Street.

We got Washburn…

You think this shit is preventable?

“Preventable”?
Yeah.

Seven years ago…

on March 11th…

went to the doctor.

Said we couldn’t have any kids.

Carol couldn’t have any babies.

Jesus, Tommy.
I didn’t know that.

I remember after,
right after, we went home,

parked the car in the driveway,
and you don’t make this kinda stuff up,

right there, the Mulaney kids.

Three little girls out there
playin’ hopscotch.

Little five-year-old girls.

I don’t know, we just sat there
dead quiet watchin’ ’em play.

It was like we were in a trance.
Jesus.

Sound that Carol made,
it wasn’t cryin’.

It was deeper.

No, cryin’ does not describe
that kinda sound.

I looked into her eyes,
and it wasn’t pain.

More like war.

Like a war between good and evil
right there in her eyes.

Like the devil attacked,
and God was inside of her fightin’ back.

We got your back.

I just held her.

What could I do? You know?

That’s all I saw today.

Good versus evil,
love versus hate.

The devil hits you like that,

there’s only one weapon
you have to fight back with.

It’s love.

That’s the only thing he can’t touch.

What are we gonna do?
We hunt ’em down.

Catch them, kill them, all that?

Still gonna get us.

No way it can ever be
entirely preventable.

(DOOR OPENS)

(LAUGHING)

Wrap our arms around each other.

Let love power us, feed us.

I don’t think there’s any way
that they could ever win.

I always knew there was
a thing of beauty

buried deep in the holy soul
of Tommy Saunders.

Four days ago,

you and I stood over the body
of a dead kid.

We can’t go back to
all those families with nothin’.

We owe ’em better.

Bet I’ll run the Marathon before you.

It’s “befo’ you.”

Before you.

“Befo’ you.”
The “R” is silent.

Befo’ you.
(LAUGHS)

Man:
Honey, I’m gonna have a smoke.

Just gonna be right here, okay?
No, no, come on.

Come on, get your foot in.
Get your foot in.

The roller’s outta the hull.

It’s okay.
Came loose from the cover.

It’s gonna ruin the hull.
Come on.

It’ll just take me
one second, okay?

I’m just gonna run out and fix it.
They’ll shoot you!

You’re not allowed
to be out there!

Lisa:
Sir! I just got a call.

Someone thinks they saw someone
suspicious hide in a boat down the street.

In a boat?
A boat.

BILLY: Hey, Tommy!

What you got? What’s up?
(WHISPERS) He’s in the boat.

What?
He’s in the boat.

There’s someone in my boat.

There’s someone in your boat?
Where’s the boat?

My boat’s right around back.

It’s got little rollers that
go underneath the cover,

and the rollers came off.
Go ahead, call it in.

Billy:
This is Yankee T-3.

We have a possible individual
in a boat at 67 Franklin.

Hey, you got a basement?
Yes.

Go in the house, get your family
in the basement, do not move.

Billy:
Easy, Tommy. Easy.

(MOUTHING)
(MOUTHING)

(SIREN WAILING)
Fuck! Fuck!

Jesus.
What do you got?

Shut them the Fuck up!
What the Fuck?

(WHISPERING) It’s him. He’s in there.
He’s in the Fuckin’ boat.

It could be rigged
to Fuckin’ blow! Let’s go!

We’re gonna get him!
Guys, guys, get back.

Get back in your vehicles.
Fuck, Fuck, Fuck.

Secure the street!
Clear these Fuckin’ houses!

This is Yankee T-3.

We need an EOD
and a tac team at 67 Franklin.

We got a possible suspect
in the backyard in a boat.

He may have a bomb.

TOMMY: Stand down
and let the tactical unit do their job.

Hey! Hey! You gettin’ me?
What frequency are you on?

Nah, I don’t hear ya.
TOMMY: What?

The whole state’s
Fuckin’ here, Tommy.

And everyone’s
on a different frequency.

Guys, radio discipline, please!

Stay off the air.
Hold back, please.

(MAN SPEAKING
INDISTINCTLY OVER RADIO)

(RUSTLING)

He’s moving!
SWAT: Movement!

BILLY: Hold your fire!

Hold your fire!

Jesus Christ!

Guys, lower your weapons.
Everyone.

Shit.

I’ll tell ya,
that boat ain’t gonna float.

News anchor:
If you’re just tuning in right now,

there has been what appears to be

a major development in what
has been a 19-hour search

for a 19-year-old
bombing suspect

for the Marathon bombing.

And it has turned into
just absolute mayhem.

(SIGHS)
It’s time to end this.

All state and local units
stand down immediately.

FBI Hostage Rescue
will be taking over.

FBI operative:
All right, let’s get strikin’.

The Virginian:
Victor 1-1, Victor 2-4,

let’s move everybody
into position.

We ‘re clear out here.

(HELICOPTER HOVERING)

Who the Fuck are you?
Ma’am, we’re with the FBI.

You can go ahead and step down now.
We got this.

The FBI? Boston FBI?

No, ma’am.
We’re from Quantico.

Well, I’m from Framingham,
Massachusetts,

and this is my spot,
and I ain’t Fuckin’ leaving.

Glad to have you with us, ma’am.

Victor 4-4, Victor 1-1,
I got the boat.

We have the boat.

Baseline green.
We got the boat.

The Virginian:
Victor 1-1, Victor 2-8,

run a few rounds
of 40 Mike bang in there,

try to shake this fellow up
a little bit.

Excuse me, ma’am.
This is about to get pretty loud.

I don’t give a Fuck!

Come on out!

Come on, Dzhokhar!
Let’s go!

We have movement.

Arm’s moving.

Yeah!
(ALL CHEERING)

NEWS ANCHOR: Police took 19-year-old
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev into custody.

NEWS ANCHOR #2: Dangerous,
as we saw. They got him alive.

There is a great sense of relief.

(NEWS ANCHORS SPEAKING
IN OTHER LANGUAGES)

News anchor:
This is something.

A crowd celebrating the news of

the arrest of suspect number two

in the Boston Marathon bombing.

(CROWD CHANTING)
Let’s go, Boston!

We have to thank, definitely,
the public for the tips

and the help and the information
that we’ve gotten from them…

Thank you. You’re the best
to ever wear that uniform.

(CHEERING)

David Ortiz:
All right, Boston!

This jersey that we wear today,

it doesn’t say “Red Sox.”

It say “Boston.”
(CHEERING)

We wanna thank you,
Mayor Menino…

Governor Patrick…

the whole police department…

for the great job
that they did this past week.

This is our Fuckin’ city.

And nobody gonna
dictate our freedom.

Stay strong!

PATRICK: Two people took many days
and weeks to plan out hate.

But love responded
in an instant.

The bombs went off
and wreaked incredible havoc,

death, and destruction.

But in that immediate
instant afterward,

people ran toward us.

I first heard the term
“Boston Strong”

about two days
into the investigation.

And for me, it was emblematic of

how tough the city
and its residents can be.

JEFF PUGLIESE: I’m a true patriot.
I really do believe in America.

And I think Boston Strong,
it just shows that

we’re gonna stand up
and defend ourselves.

We’re not gonna take it
and be beaten down.

We’re not gonna bother you,

but don’t come at us because
we’re gonna come back at ya.

When’s the last time
you saw crowds of people

cheering the police on like that?

That brought tears to my eyes.
It really did.

When we captured him,
it was the best feeling in the world.

As a police officer, I don’t ever
remember having a better feeling.

It’s almost like
we just won the war.

In the weeks after the bombings,

when I had the opportunity
to visit many of the most

severely injured Boston
Marathon bombing survivors,

I was absolutely amazed
by the strength and resiliency

of the human spirit
exhibited in these individuals.

It was absolutely amazing.

Gov. Patrick:
I think that day on Boylston Street,

the bombers took lives and limbs…

they took some of
our sense of security,

but they took a lot less
than they intended.

And they gave us back some
things they didn’t intend us.

They gave us a stronger sense
of community, of common cause.

And I think we’ve seen that
in other examples around the world.

PATRICK: When we see the news
that another attack has happened,

in Brussels, Islamabad, Nice,

Orlando, San Bernardino, Paris…

I think it’s important we think about
these people around the world

not as victims of violence,
but ambassadors for peace.

(MENG SPEAKING)

You know, I have a tremendous
amount of optimism

and hope for the future.

Going forward with Leo,

I hope that he views the world
with open eyes,

lots of questions,
and a sense of humor.

This has been the absolute worst
and lowest time in our lives,

as well as the best.

As bizarre as that is to say,

and not that I don’t miss my legs,

I miss them every day,

but after being the recipients

of such incredible care
and kindness,

the very least I can do
is get out of bed and try again.

And try to make this world
a little bit better for somebody else.

Patrick:
About two years after the bombing,

I got a running leg
and started to practice with it.

But I still didn’t know
I could get to the finish line

until we took the turn
onto Boylston.

That was the hardest stretch
of the race

because it was
running past the spot

where a bomb had gone off
and changed our lives,

took the lives of three others.

(ANNOUNCEMENTS OVER P.A.)

(CHEERING)

Race announcer:
And here comes Patrick Downes.

Patrick Downes,
who lost a leg in 2013,

There are great moments.
There are inspiring moments.

There are moments
to savor and treasure.
