Episode Recap

When a hospital is the target of a bombing attack, the VCTF is called in to investigate. It's clear once the team arrives that this is no random attack. They are dealing with a highly skilled explosives expert who obviously has an agenda in mind. Bailey (Robert Davi) summons Coop (A Martinez) to Atlanta to assist with the case. His return is awkward for he and Sam (Ally Walker) as they have previously ended their romantic relationship. The bomber continues his lethal campaign by killing seemingly unrelated individuals. Sam and the team race to establish a relationship between the victims. Meanwhile, Bailey must deal with Frances' (Heather McComb) legal problems. The DA sees her case as a stepping stone for political office and is bound and determined to see her do time for shooting her father and fleeing prosecution. George (Peter Frechette) also faces difficulties as he continues to be pressured by an old acquaintance to embezzle funds from a local bank. This "pressure" becomes threats of violence when the guy's muscle, the mysterious Marcus Peyton (Sheik Mahmud-Bey), enters the picture. The stakes in the bombing case intensify once the bomber begins a dangerous game of Russian roulette with Coop, trying to outsmart him with increasingly intricate explosive devices. Eventually, the team lands upon a paranoid schizophrenic with links to all of the previous victims. As the episode draws to a close, the bomber plants his most sophisticated device, only to be thwarted and subsequently apprehended by Coop and Sam. In a shocking twist ending, Coop overcomes the challenge posed by the bomber, only to be abducted by Jack and later murdered by his lethal companion, "Jill" (Traci Lords).
