Episode Summary

Someone mails a bomb to Gardner/Ross causing a mid day evacuation. All fingers seem to point to an environmental extremist group known as "Planet Alert". Benny discovers the stock of a small fishery in the Maritimes that is suddenly increasing in value, suggesting raiders are trying to buy up the company and break it up, selling it. This action of course would end up closing the company, and putting all the employees there out of work. Darby announces he is a member of Planet Alert, and shares a degree of their concern over the new gas refinery. Adam sends Jack and Darby to Honduras to investigate the Planet Alert claims that a retrofit gas refinery is polluting the environment. While looking into the matter Darby begins suspecting that something is not right. Cathy embarks on a quest to throw Benny the perfect birthday party. Marty however has been becoming increasingly hostile towards her due to her relationship with Benny. Meanwhile, back on the farm as it were, an environmental terrorist sabotages GR's computer systems forcing the trading floor to evacuate to the emergency bunker. Before Sally and Adam can leave Cathy walks into their office, followed by the terrorist with a large bomb strapped to his chest. Adam tries to reason with the bomber, which only gets him handcuffed to the desk. The police convince the bomber to retrieve a message from Planet Alert's founder in an effort to get him to disarm, but it was a trap. The Swat team fires a single round into the man's head, killing him. The dead man's trigger he was holding falls from his hand, and Sally and Adam prepare to die. The bomb doesn't explode, and they are able to leave safely. The founder of Planet Alert offers an apology to Adam and Sally. Sally rages on him, accusing HIM of causing the bomber's death. Afterwards Sally, Adam, and Jack decide to listen to some of the demands of Planet Alert and force the owner of the refinery to set aside one percent of his profits to an environmental impact fund. Cathy finally settles on bowling for Benny's 48th birthday. The firm celebrates together, and Marty and Cathy make up.moreless
