A woman enters the 87th precinct headquarters and holds Detectives Kling and Meyer at gunpoint, announcing that she plans to kill Lt. Carrella as soon as he arrives. She blames Carrella for the death of her husband, who just died in prison. Carrella was the arresting officer. She is armed not only with a gun but a bottle of liquid which she claims is nitroglycerin. Soon both Detective Havilland and Teddy arrive there as well, along with a female suspect Havilland has brought in to book, and they are also held hostage as they tensely wait for Carrella to arrive.
