  • Josh Scott goes to work, unsuspecting his wife Sarah was deadly serious about a domestic row and assumed that a few text messages on his phone mean he's having an adulterous affair with New York reporter Hannah. The team gets an alarm call after Sarah has tricked Hannah to the Scott home and holds her at knife-point. After Ed's mishap, Gregory has switched everybody's roles, with Sam as negotiator and Ed in the control vehicle. They workout with Josh and the baby-phone Hannah manages sneakily to turn on that Josh really remains committed to his marriage, which came under near-fatal stress because of unsuccessful IVF they couldn't afford and his dad's death. When he hears Hannah is the hostage, his old affair with her suddenly seems relevant. The team faces impossible choices, which further strains Sam's secret affair with colleague Jules.

  • A married couple, Sarah and Josh Scott, discover that once again they have been unable to get pregnant, a fact causing much stress in the marriage since their money is running out and they are being told not to try again. After Josh goes to work, his cell phone rings on the kitchen table just as Sarah comes downstairs from wrecking the nursery she had lovingly created for the baby that isn't coming. Her husband's phone holds a text from a woman named Hannah who says that a recent night in New York was "wonderful". So Sarah replies to the text for Hannah to come to the house because Josh's supposedly home alone. When the woman arrives Sarah takes her hostage with a butcher knife until she gets the truth, but the woman Hannah manages to dial 911, causing our Tactical Response team to surround the house and try to figure out what is going on, since the wife is not after all the hostage in her own home. Josh is brought back to the house but at first he tells the police he doesn't have any idea what is going on. Hannah finally admits to Sarah that she did sleep with her husband and she's come down to tell him she is now pregnant. Meanwhile Josh outside finally admits to his mistake but declares it only strengthened his commitment to Sarah and renewed his conviction that she is the one for him. Sarah finally decides not to use the knife on Hannah after hearing Josh's declaration -- but the other woman hears it too and tries to bash the wife over the head with a floor lamp. Luckily tactical response team makes a hard entry just in time. Though Sarah is injured, Josh goes in the ambulance with her and leaves a dejected and rejected pregnant Other Woman behind.

  • Sergeant Parker mixes with the usual order when he puts himself in charge of tactical and Sam as negotiator after a wife takes another woman hostage believing she's had an affair with her husband.
