The daughter of the kidnapper arrives wanting to talk to someone.

She says her brother did not have a gun. The daughter of the kidnapper gets angry and talks to Carrie. She wears a army jacket for David and never takes it off. They want him to stop him from hurting other people. Carrie asks the sister questions when she shows up to the station. But she wants to vent her rage. She will not cooperate and ask her father to put down the gun and release the hostages. "The cop who shot him is a liar and that's the truth". She is firm. Carrie says she won't help them she doesn't believe David Jacobs had a weapon. "We gotta find that weapon." Carrie and Al are anxious. Time is short. The hostage negotiator wants Rowe charged for murder. Ray and Carrie go back to the alley. Carrie remembers a lit cigarette up n the fire escapes.

The man is very unsure and it was too dark. A junkie took something from behind the dumpster. A skinny black junkie was there and Carrie remembers. He was sitting on the sidelines and he might have pulled the gun from where Jacobs had thrown it. Jimmy Dee is a junkie. Al learns the D. A. won't play ball.

Al hears what Carrie says and says Jimmy will talk under pressure. Al says the perimeter has been breached. Detective Rowe Saunders shows up to the door and announces himself to the man with the gun.

Carrie speaks to Kim to get her to talk. David came home from Afghanistan and found out that she was running LeRon and using him. LeRon laughed in his face. Le Ron told everyone he was going to kill David. Carrie guesses she killed LeRon and he was trying to get rid of the gun. He never gave up on me. he came home and I was totally screwed up on drugs.

About the author tvqueen


I like to watch TV shows from classic eras as well as contemporary drama and comedy. Science Fiction is fun, and shows like the Cape and Fringe keep hope alive that the medium that produced Space 1999 is alive. Comedy such as 30 Rock is usually, good, but not always. I like Survivor but it has so little to do with survivor skills I am disappointed. Appointment viewing is Grey's Anatomy, NCIS LA, The CSI series for New York and Las Vegas and Miami, with a special shout out for the new Hawaii Five O. Gordon Ramsay's Hells Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares are top of the line viewing for the drama comedy Gordon's character and the business lessons they teach.
