Lame 10 minute plot stretched into 60

I'm a big fan of the show, but they sure missed on this one! Major Descoine spent time in jail because of the Remington Steele detective agency, while his wife committed suicide rather than do jail time and wants revenge. While Mildred is on an early lunch date, Descoine shows up and tells them they will be dead by noon. He then pitches a smoke bomb and runs out the office. They see him in the elevator as the elevator doors close, but instead of one taking to the staircase, while the other calls the police (as anyone sensible would do). They spend time analyzing the scarf that he left behind as a clue and that leads to a country club.

From then on, the show becomes an unexciting game of cat and mouse with Descoine being aided by his daughter, Minor. Descoine is always one step ahead and has, even more unbelievably, managed to steal one of Laura's childhood diaries. This gives him the location to a childhood hideout, a drainage area that seems unlikely for Laura to have played in considering her reaction to the rats they find. They also seem to have the idea that if they just make it to noon and stay alive, they will somehow be free and clear. It's all very contrived and not remotely believable, even for this show.
