Everyone’s talking about this series but can you just jump in at any time? Yes, you can – and here’s how:
Season 1 Wednesdays e.tv (*194) 20:30 episodes 4 & 5 Surgeon Dr Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette – see more on p55) was told to kill the president on the operating table or her family would die in single-season thriller Hostages (2013-2014).
Five things to know:
Ellen, her hubby Brian 1
and kids Morgan and Jake (Tate Donovan, Quinn Shephard and Mateus Ward) – learnt in episode 1 (14 June) that their hostage takers have FBI links.
Agent Duncan Carlisle 2
(Dylan McDermott) isn’t the only one who needs President Kincaid (James Naughton) dead – White House Chief Of Staff Quentin Creasy (Jeremy Bobb) is involved too.
Duncan’s wife is dying 3
of leukaemia and the president happens to be the perfect donor match.
Ellen swapped the 4
tainted medication Duncan gave her in episode 1 and saved Kincaid for another two weeks.
Ellen traced Duncan’s 5
daughter through her medical records in episode 3 (28 June) and started to figure out his plan.
Shady FBI agent Duncan is turning Dr Ellen into a killer.
