Episode Summary

Terry Nash, a family man, barely survives an apparent assassination at-tempt in which he sees his wife and infant daughter killed. In the hospi-tal Nash's brother-in-law confides to him that his late wife's side of the family have been marked for gangland execution for years. Nash, whose memory about the attack is foggy, knows only two things...his wife and child are dead ...and he wants revenge. The man said to be responsible is a state's witness for a pending federal underworld investigation and he is in the protective custody of Starsky and Hutch. Nash positions himself in a hotel across the street from where the three are sequestered; he then phones multiple bomb threats into the hotel. As Starsky, Hutch and their state's witness are about to leave, another man identifying himself as an FBI agent redirects them away from their planned fire escape route out - through the building's front door.moreless

    The plot of this two-part episode is interesting,and the first 11 minutes nothing is amiss(from my point of Organization brainwashes innocent people into becoming victims do not know that they have been Nash,a young man believing he has a wife that was killed by hitmen,and that Joe Durniac was responsible set out to get the 11 minutes passes,we see Starsky and Hutch in are assigned to guard Joe is going to testify at a Senate Hearing,against Organized Crime does'nt make it to the is shot Assassin is Terry would confess to the shooting of Durniac to S&H,and give his reasons first S&H are skeptical,but they would soon have second where the plot two will provide more insight into what had happen to Terry Nash,and a young woman also brainwashed,and is assigned to kill Starsky,Hutch,and Nash.moreless
