  • Special Agent Ian Edgerton returns but this time he is the hunted, not the hunter. Arrested for the murder of an informant, Edgerton breks free from his captors and takes a hostage: Colby Granger. Edgerton demands to speak to Charlie.

    It's always good to see Lou Diamond Phillips back on the show. He always does and excellent job as Ian Edgerton. However, as I watched this episode I kept asking myself if I was watching "Numb3rs" or the 1998 movie "The Negotiator" starring Samuel L. Jackson and Oscar winner Kevin Spacey. This episode is for all intents and purposes a scene for scene ripoff of that movie. The plots are almost 100% identical. Another flaw is it was painfully obvious from the beginning that Edgerton was innocent and who the villains were. Christopher McDonald's character is a joke. Misfired episode.
