A flashback to the first few moments of the standoff doesn't reveal a whole lot of new information except that both Lucas and Randall were pretty aggressive in the beginning. Felicia goes to visit Lucas to try to jog her memory, but he doesn't want to talk to her. Lizzie tells Jeremy that she needs some time to think about things. Egan becomes a minor celebrity, and admits on television that he thinks the police could have handled things differently. Nick quits his job rather than publicly commend the way the hostage situation was handled by law enforcement. Kathryn gets a call from a reporter who has heard that Nick was the cause of a lot of the things that went wrong during the crisis, so she decides to throw her lot behind Nick, despite what it might meant to her career. When Kathryn and Nick talk to a reporter, we learn that Nick's gun fired the shot that killed Eva, and that Nick convinced the robbers to release Kathryn's mom instead of the wounded security guard. Kathryn's boss tries to convince her to ditch Nick, because associating with him will hurt her career. Felicia goes to therapy and worries that people think she's faking her memory loss. Nick's former boss wants Nick to recant his story, and says that they will charge Franny with drug possession (she had pot and Ecstasy in her purse during the robbery) if Nick doesn't comply. Nick takes his job back and toes the company line. Felicia realizes that she was the one who called 911 from inside the bank. Jeremy has a freakout after losing a transplant patient, and kills Randall, who is still in the hospital, by secretly injecting something (potassium?) into Randall's IV.
There were nine people taken hostage in a bank robbery gone wrong. They ended up being in the bank for fifty-two hours. Now you shouldn't mind that you missed the first episode.
We flash back to the very beginning of the bank robbery, with Lucas saying that it will all be over in five minutes. Randall keeps his gun trained on Nick, the cop. Everyone else puts their hands up. At Lucas's command, Nick puts his gun on the floor and kicks it over. Eva and Franny eye the alarm button under the counter. Randall (who has clearly watched too many Tarantino films, judging by the way he's jumping up on counters and yelling a lot) spots them and orders them to come out from behind the counter without even thinking about pressing the alarm button. Lizzie starts edging toward the door, and Randall spots her and orders her back. Jeremy grabs her arm and reminds her that the door is locked anyway, and then promises that they'll be okay. Randall, who is clearly on crowd control, orders Kathryn to check Nick's lower leg for a second gun, but she doesn't find one. She decides that this would be a good time to lecture the bank robbers on what a big mistake they are making, and urges them to let everyone go right now, since they've barely committed a felony at this point. Do you think the law cares if you are a little guilty of a felony? It's kind of like being a little pregnant, isn't it? Lucas coolly assures Kathryn that they've taken care of the security cameras. And then he punches Nick in the gut, happy to add assault on an officer to his list of felonies. Lucas orders everyone to slide their cell phones to him. Randall asks Egan why his sleeve is blue, and he nervously says that he doesn't know, so Randall elbows him in the face, causing his glasses to fly off. Malcolm urges Randall to cut it out, and then explains that Egan just came out of the bathroom. Egan, lying on the floor bleeding from the nose, lies that he dropped his wedding ring in the toilet, because he was going to flush it, and then he changed his mind.
Lucas wants to move the proceedings along, and asks who's in charge. Malcolm says that he is, so Lucas asks to go to the vault. Randall happily orders everyone else to lie on the floor on their stomachs. Eva asks Nick if he's okay, and he nods. Malcolm and Lucas head for the vault now that Malcolm has retrieved his keys. Hey, remember when Felicia went into the bathroom instead of heading to the coffee house like her father requested? Yeah, she's still in there, and so far, no one knows about it. She cracks the door open carefully and then slides down to the floor.
