Storyline

Commander Blake is still dealing with the aftermath of the James Lampton case. Not only has he pleaded not guilty to the murders for which he is accused, it now means that Blake will have to testify about their sexual relationship. With the added news coverage, Blake finds that the sister of one of Lampton's victims is now stalking her. Blake's own sister, who is terminally ill with cancer, moves in with her. In a separate case, a computer hacker who has gained access to online medical records and changing information is terrorizing St. Barnaby's hospital. His first victim is someone who had a severe allergy to nuts and the second is someone who is allergic to penicillin. The hacker threatens to kill one patient every 24 hours if he doesn't receive 20 million pounds. Written by garykmcd

still not that good
3 March 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Commander Blake is caring for her terminal sister. The Lampton case continues as he pleads not guilty. Embarrassing details of their relationship are publicized. A sister of Lampton's victim is stalking Blake. A hacker has gained access to the records at St. Barnaby's hospital and is causing patient deaths. He threatens to kill one patient every 24 hrs.

I still don't like the Lampton case coming from the first movie. I would rather the case be settled before this movie. The victim's sister isn't that interesting and serves mostly to remind about the Lampton case. The computer hacking has some compelling drama mostly centering on the incompetent response. The problem is that tapping on the keyboard is not the most dramatic stuff on screen although I still prefer that than the Lampton case.
