    This review contains spoilers.



    The conclusion to this excellent two-part opening to the third season is just as good as the first half.



    Not all that much more to comment really, as I made most of my points on my review for Part 1. But thankfully, the quality and pace keeps up throughout, making this surely one of 'Blue Heelers' best offerings.



    To be critical, the hostage situation does verge on dragging slightly at times, but due to the excellent performances, and generally well-directed plot, I can easily forgive this.



    The climax is exciting, and brings things to a satisfying conclusion.



    Both the regular and guest cast give good performances in this episode, and as often is the case, Lisa McCune really shines.



    All-in-all, a classic two-parter. As with Part 1, I give Part 2 a solid 10 out of 10.moreless
