Storyline

When the attempt to free Ruth goes wrong, the terrorists are forced to rethink, taking the prisoners, Joan and Joyce as their hostages. The women squabble despite Myra's attempts to keep them calm and in line. Outside, Inspector Grace butts heads with the federal cops, who have very different ideas from him on how to handle the situation. The terrorists inform the police that they intend to kill a hostage every hour until their demands are met. Written by Anonymous
