Storyline

The DC-3 is loaded to the brim with rowdy rig-pigs eager for a weekend in the city. But Bobby, Krista and Dev don't know that one of the passengers is a prisoner being transferred by a plainclothes police officer. A coordinated ambush by the prisoner's brothers leaves the officer stabbed and one of the brothers shot. They need medical attention, fast, but the hijackers won't let Krista fly to Yellowknife. Without thinking, Dev suggests they land at Doc Hossa's lodge - putting Bobby's ex-girlfriend, Petra, and her 10-year-old son Connor, in danger. There's a further complication: Connor is Bobby's son too - the son he has never met, or acknowledged. At Petra's angry insistence, Bobby hides the truth from Connor. But his heart is twisting as he does everything in his power to protect the boy. Meanwhile, when Mel learns Krista's flight has been hijacked, he disregards his doctor's orders and leaps into the pilot's seat to help. With the engine killed to avoid detection, Mel glides in ...

Terrific guest actors tonight!
24 January 2012 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow -- it took me a while tonight to find out who played "Wade" so brilliantly in this episode, Hijacked!. A pivotal character, Wade held the entire crisis in the palm of his hand, and Bradley Stryker made him utterly real, complex and both terrifying and touching. Good stuff -- Bradley Stryker, was ably backed up by Luke Camilleri, another of the skilled guests enlivening the Arctic Air adventure tonight.

All the terrific regulars and even the smaller roles shone, as always. The other travellers on the plane, rig crew-members who are beyond eager to get to a city and its delights for lonely men, loaded the screen with testosterone and beery bellicosity, yet remained pretty reasonable in a fix. A hallmark of the series is becoming the individual authenticity of even its bit players, such as the RCMP officer who came to help out at the end.

EVERYTHING about this series simply gets better and better week after week. I've been a TV nut since the 1950's, so am easily put off and not so easily turned on to new shows. This one has me in its grip already!
