Storyline

Three men rob a jewelry house and make off with some valuable gems. One of them grabs the jewels and tries to make a break for it. The other two show up at the office and pulls their guns and one of them makes Sabrina wear a belt that has explosives in it. They tells them that they want them to find their partner and bring the jewels to them. So Kris and Kelly search for the man. They start with the hospital because they say that when he was making his getaway they shot him and that he could have been hit. When they find him but he gets away, Kris and Kelly decide to seek out the guards who helped them with the robbery. Eventually with their help they find him but he's dead and the gems are gone. Kris and Kelly along with Charlie devise a scheme to get the ones holding Sabrina and Bosley out of the office so they can save them. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

One Tense Episode
29 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After two diamond crooks are double-crossed, they take Sabrina hostage to help the crooks retrieve their stolen diamonds. Kelly and Kris race against time to save her in Hours of Desperation.

Three men pull off a diamond heist, but one of them jumps out of the car and runs off with the loot. Ring leader Denny Dinsmore shoots him, and he manages to get himself to a hospital before collapsing. Dinsmore and his partner, Williams, show up at the office and hold Bosley and the Angels at gunpoint. Dinsmore forces Sabrina to wear a locking belt covered with charges; unless Kris and Kelly can find Murdock and retrieve the diamonds in ten hours, he will activate the device and kill Sabrina and Bosley. Murdock, who is very weak after having the bullet removed, leaves the hospital to meet a fence and sell the diamonds. Kelly and Kris force the security guards who aided with the theft to lead them to the motel where the exchange is to take place. They discover that Murdock has died and the diamonds are gone. Kelly and Kris call Charlie in the office in an effort to save Sabrina despite the odds.

This is one tense episode in the second season especially when Kelly and Kris work once again together to save Sabrina just like in Angel In Love when Sabrina's judgement was cloud due to her romance with a bad guy.In it,both Angel try to save Sabrina from her captors especially when things get complicated.Great chemistry shown by Smith and Ladd.
