Well, Annie has a key. It'll get them out of the Psych Ward, but not off the third floor. At least that way, they can get word to Carling about the bomb that awaits him and the rest of the police. And Sam knows just the way to do it -- that break room he spotted earlier with no bars on the windows. So he and Hunt make their way out of the ward, head down the hall, open the door to the room... and find a closet with even more explosives stashed inside. You picked a fine time to have one of your little brain farts, Tyler, I'll give you that.
But Sam and Hunt have bigger problems -- Michael H. has discovered the guns they've hidden in the EEG machine, and he's not taking a live-and-let-live attitude about it. "I am done playing games," Michael declares. He's also done wearing the dynamite vest -- that honor has been bestowed upon Annie. Hunt growls at Michael, and Michael barks back at Hunt, and everything seems like it's going to come to a boil when Sam suggests that maybe it's time that everyone calmed down. We wouldn't want to get anyone killed, particularly those of us who have less than an hour until our life-support is shut off. Michael presents Sam with a new list of demands and orders him to relate them to the police over the phone. Otherwise, the hostage herd is about to be thinned a little.
Time to give Carling a call about those demands. He's decidedly unreceptive, even after Sam pleads for him to listen. "Listen to a renegade whack job?" Carling scoffs. "I don't think so." Well, perhaps catching a glimpse of Annie in the window as she sports the latest in dynamite vests will cause you to rethink that intractable stand. Anyhow, those demands: Michael H. still wants that bus at 2 p.m. to take him, his brother, and the hostages to the airport. Once the bus gets to the airport, there had better be a fully gassed-up plane with a pilot ready to fly him and his brother to the destination of their choice. Carling wants to know if Hunt is okaywith all of this. Hunt takes time out from muttering under his breath all the horrible things he's planning on doing to Michael H. to confirm that this has been approved.
