Randall Bolt, the man who hijacked the Mountie train in the episode "All the Queen's Horses," is about to be brought to trial. But his brother, Francis, who was the man conceived the hijacking, has plans of his own. First Francis grabs Fraser and Vecchio, then he brings them to court with bombs strapped to them. When the Bolts make their demands, Fraser realizes something is not quite right. The brothers talk about a schedule that doesn't jive with their demands. When they leave, Bolt arms the bombs and Fraser and Vecchio have to figure out which wire, of the red, blue, or white wires, to pull to deactivate the bomb. Written by
