Storyline

After having a little accident on the set of his latest monster movie, Hannibal has to spend the night in a hospital. From there he is kidnapped and brought before the mysterious retired general Hunt Stockwell, who proposes a mission to free the passengers of a high jacked plane. One passenger in particular interests them both: Captain Curtis, the one man who could prove the A-Team's innocence in the '72 Hanoi bank job. Hannibal decides to take along the young special effects man who was responsible for landing him in the hospital, 'Dishpan' Frankie Santana. As the five of them leave for Spain, Stockwell designated them the call-numbers 'Empress' 7 to 12. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Trivia

Several things about the show's intro changed from this episode till the end of the show. Firstly, the removal of the clips from the following episode at the start. Instead, opting for a short introduction to the episode. Secondly, the theme tune changed to a lot more of a synthesised version. Thirdly, the video montage shown during the opening theme includes, almost exclusively, scenes from Season 5. See more »
